Yeah, that Super Bowl … A Bit of Let Down, Wasn’t It?

Hi friends, I don’t have much to report this weekend because of Kingdom Hearts 3, the Super Bowl and making the fanfiction archive. The Super Bowl was kinda a let down right? I mean, it was a game of many firsts for a Super Bowl, but I’m not sure ‘lowest scoring game’ is one that either team wanted. Some of the commercials were interesting but last years were better and the Half-time show was okay, but not the greatest especially with all the bleeping. In other news, the fanfiction archive is growing, but it’s not done yet.

Kingdom Hearts 3, is an awesome game. I’ve done most of the worlds shown in trailers: Tangled, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, Frozen, Monster’s Inc. and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Big Hero 6 is next and we’ll find out where we go from there. There are a lot of cut-scenes in-between worlds cause there’re just so many characters to follow. I’ll really looking forward to where this all is leading!

Story-wise, I continued reading Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold and started rereading Harry Potter and the Stargate. The new chapters for this weekend are: Relic of the Future, Seerking’s Asylum, Hive Daughter, The Unseen Hunt, Tsunami and Mauling Snarks..

I started reading the sequel to the Danger-verse story I mentioned last time by whydoyouneedtoknow called, Living Without Danger. It follows Harry and the Pack throughout their first two years at Hogwarts and their adventures without Danger around. It’s good and looking forward to the rest.

I also got a updated for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, called Peace through Power by Vherstinae. It’s a Command & Conquer (Game) and Worm Crossover where Taylor finds a journal of her mother’s time under Lustrum and finds the phrase ‘Peace Through Power.’ She uses this and her mother’s powerful family to free herself from Winslow and the story goes on from there. It’s only nine chapters so far, but it’s interesting.

Finally, I started reading a Harry Potter and Stargate SG-1 crossover called Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life by kossboss. It has the basilisk bite weakening the soul piece in Harry’s head after second year, allowing Harry to take all the memories and destroy it. Using them and looking over his life, he decides to take all he can and go through the unlocked ‘Veil of Death’ to an alternate reality. He ends up in room with the Quantum Mirror (before SG-1 gets there). Watch how his presence changes things! I haven’t finished, but it looks like its still going!

See everyone on Friday. I look forward to a finishing another day of work and continuing KH3. Have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A sakurademonalchemist Week (with still no votes on my poll)

Well intrepid readers (the few of you there are), there has still not been any votes on my poll.  I asked a friend her opinion and since that is the only one I’ve heard so far, if no one votes then I’ll go by her decision.  I’ll post the link again in this post in the hopes that someone will read this and vote – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.  I just started classes that happen on Thursday night and am thinking of changing my posting dates if it doesn’t work out having them on the same day.  Moving to the point of this blog, I read so more Taylor Varga.  The new chapters this week are: Reality Bites Worm, Archer, Breaking the Gilded Cage (Wed & Thurs), Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Omake), The Gamer (Webcomic), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub and GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There.

The only series I read these past few days that wasn’t Taylor Varga or a sakura(youknowtherest) fic was ‘Mythical Night’ by Myrddin le Faye (not their original screen name, but they’ve changed it several times).  It’s a Naruto and Arrow (though it’s mostly DC universe now) crossover where the Kyubi convinces Naruto that it’s better to become a ‘hero’ than to be a ninja.  Thus he becomes the ‘Arrow’ of Konoha (the recent TV series version) and soon many others join him taking the names of DC universe heroes and villains.

R Rated Content

This one has sporadic sexual scenes and a few toned down sex scenes.

R Rated Content

This fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8776052/1/Mythical-Night.

As indicated last paragraph, the rest of the fanfics are by sakurademonalchemist.  The first one is ‘Moon’s Blessing’ which is a crossover between Sailor Moon and Ouran High School Host Club.  Ouran High School Host Club is a manga turned anime about a host club a rich private high school (aka a club where girls can bewooed by good looking men for money, though this one is a rich kid version with no kissing or more).  When the scholarship student Haruhi Fujioka accidentally breaks an expensive vase she is drafted into the host club, because the club thinks she’s a guy at first.  Watch as she pretends to be a boy as she works with her friends at the host club and help them become better people, just by being around.  It’s a good anime and manga with a catchy opening theme.

The fic has Usagi being the sister of the main male character, Tamaka Sou, who has stayed at her aunts because another uncle was ‘interested’ (and not in a good way).  When said uncle passes away, Usagi transfers away to Ouran to be with her brother.  Watch as an accidental change of birth leads to large changes.  The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11232145/1/Moon-s-Blessing.

The second story was ‘Blood for Blood’ which is a Naruto and Hellsing crossover.  Hellsing is about the vampire Alucard who works with the Hellsing Organization to keep his fellow vampires in line in England.  Watch him and his newly made partner Seras (a former police woman who he had to kill during his first job and brought her back) take on all comers from vampires, to priests, to Nazis.  The manga and the second anime version (Hellsing Ultimate) are the better ones.  The originals not bad, just not as good (in my opinion).

This fic is set far in the future of Hellsing where centuries have passed.  When the ninja villages were founded Alucard went on a killing spree and he and Seras were sealed near Konoha.  When fem Naruto finds out about them early in life, she goes and releases them.  They take form as her age and join the class.  Watch as she and her new companions change the ninja world with their bloodthirsty ways, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11133925/1/Blood-for-Blood.

Next, I read “Forgotten Angel’ which is a Harry Potter, Supernatural and Constantine crossover.  Constantine is about John Constantine, a demon hunter who joins up with a police woman who is investigating her twin’s death.  Getting mixed up with angels and demons they seek to find their own peace.  It’s based on the DC Comic character.

In the fic, Harry is not slated to live much past birth, so Castiel is sent to take his place and kill Voldemort.  However, when he is hit with the killing curse, he forgets all his memories and as no-one in Heaven really cares about him he lives his life as ‘Harry.’  It follows the same sad story until it is found that ‘Harry’ can see the demons that pretend to be people.  He ends up living in a church, renamed Cas Sheilds, and the ‘younger brother of John Constantine.  Watch as this ‘Harry’ goes to Hogwarts and upsets the apple cart.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10807240/1/Forgotten-Angel.

After that it was ‘Tricksters and Gods’ and it’s sequel, ‘Pagans and Angels.’  Tricksters and Gods is a Harry Potter and MCU crossover.  After the events of the first Avengers movie, Loki is banished into human form until he is deemed worthy of returning to Asgard.  The spell goes slightly wrong and Loki ends up in Harry Potter.  After the curse on Halloween, it’s mostly Loki, with some Harry, that survives (without his memories).  Watch as Loki lives as Harry Potter and decides to not take the Magical World’s crap.  He becomes as Lawyer and drags the wizards into the 21 century.  Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10177155/1/Tricksters-and-Gods.

The second one in the series Pagans and Angels, has Harry/Loki going to the Supernatural universe to get away from Asgard and his actions to stop the Infinity Stones from falling into the hands of evil.  Follow his adventures here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10916707/1/Pagans-and-Angels.

Then there was ‘Shifting Foxes’ (the only one of the sakura fics I haven’t read before) which is a Naruto and Pokémon crossover.  It has Naruto happening after an event that shifted the planets plates and had the Pokémon disappearing for two decades.  Now only ninjas are allowed to have Pokémon.  Naruto finds an eevee when he’s young that has been experimented on that allows it to change back and forth between all of it’s evolutions except for the original three.  Watch as he and his team change the world, with some help from the Legendaries.  Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8736838/1/Shifting-Foxes.

That’s all I’ll write about for now.  See everyone next week and I hope everyone has a great weekend and votes on my poll (really, it only takes a few seconds, please)!

Weekend of a Few Readers – 2019 Version

Hello my friends! It’s another Monday with very little traffic over the weekend. I was wondering why there were no votes on my pole and now it’s obvious that it’s because there was next to no one who had heard about it. I’ll post the link again in this post in the hope that someone will read this and vote – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

Anyway, I spent sometime continuing rereading Taylor Varga, Outfoxed and Neo Yondaime Hokage, finished rereading How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk and Prime Directive: Hero and reread History’s Strongest Disciple Again?! The new chapters for the weekend were from: Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks (Fri & Mon), Taylor Varga (Fri, Sat & Sun), Relic of the Future, The Reclamation of Black Magic, Muggleborn Teacher, The Unseen Hunt, The Healing Touch and Tsunami. I wonder if anyone would be interested in me making a page with the fanfiction/online stories links I’ve posted on it. Maybe the next poll if anyone ever votes on this one.

I started off by reading (for the first time) a fanfiction by lazybum89 called ‘A Conversation with the Master of Death.’ It’s an Avengers/Harry Potter crossover that has Phil Coulson meeting with ‘The Master of Death’ when Loki shoots him. He’s surprised to learn that he’s not the only one of the team to have met him. What will happen next? I’ll find out when you do because it only has 3 chapters so far and was last updated in Jan last year. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9594344/1/A-Conversation-with-the-Master-of-Death.

Next I wanted to read a fanfiction, but I hadn’t read the other story it was a crossover with. The webcomic is called “Looking for Group” and is an amusing comic about a Dark Elf named Cale’anon who wants to be a hero, but ends up with people who are villains. This means mostly the first other character he meets, the warlock Richard, who loves killing and setting things on fire. It’s over a thousand pages, but I’ve only read almost 300 currently. The link to the first page is here – https://www.lfg.co/page/1/.

I also reread another of VFSNAKE’s fics called, ‘Rewriting History.’ It’s a Naruto fic about how things went wrong after the last war and Naruto ends up in the past to fix the future, starting with stopping his clan’s village from being destroyed. Watch as he thwarts plots and help those he cares about live happy lives. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11636547/1/Rewriting-History.

Following that, I started read more sakurademonalchemist stories that I haven’t read before (none of which are finished, of course). The first one is called ‘Chaos Hunter,’ which is crossover between Supernatural and Slayers. “Slayers” is an older anime, based off light novels, about a powerful sorceress called Lina Inverse and her companions. She loves money, treasure and food and often overpowers her spells causing tons of damage. It was one of the most popular of the 1990s.

In the fic, she is transported to the Supernatural world and ends up with Sam instead of Jess at the beginning of the series. She works with the Winchesters to find their father and becomes a Hunter of her own. Watch as she changes things up with her Chaos, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11380493/1/Chaos-Hunter.

Next is ‘Wizard’s Law,’ which is a crossover between Harry Potter and “Law and Order: SVU.” Law and Order: SVU (or Special Victims Unit) a show is about detectives in the (fictional) 16th Precinct of New York PD who deal with crimes against children (sexual or otherwise) and the elderly. It’s interesting and I haven’t watched in a while, cause it’s been on since 1999 (on it’s 20th season now). Based on it’s predecessor “Law and Order,” it’s more popular (as evidenced in the fact it’s still going while the other one ended).

The story has the lead female detective, Olivia Benson; finding out Harry Potter is her distant cousin. He is sent to live with her after 4th year and decides he doesn’t want to go back. In-between baking sweets for the precinct and foiling the attempts of the order to get him back, his life is still anything but normal. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11349550/1/Wizard-s-Law.

Then came ‘The Greatest Prank,’ which the one I read Looking for Group for, as it crossovers with Harry Potter in this fic. After first year, Harry sends an owl message to (what he believes is) a fictional warlock named Richard. When he goes to Hogwarts for his second year, he finds out that self-same Richard is the new DADA teacher. What will be in store for the poor denizens of Hogwarts with him in castle? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11246463/1/The-Greatest-Prank.

Following that was ‘A Deal Made in Good Faith,’ which is proof sakurademonalchemist can write longer fics (42 chapters, but still not finished). It’s a crossover mainly between Harry Potter and Supernatural, but there are others stories in there. Female Harry accidentally performs a demon summoning ritual and Crowley comes to investigate. Finding her, he makes a deal with Petunia for her and takes her to Hell. However, she is not tortured or turned into a demon. He wants to use her to finally get the contracts on Voldemort and Dumbledore that are overdue. Follow her as she works to get them or pay their price herself. All of which can be found, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10916724/1/A-Deal-Made-in-Good-Faith.

‘Curses and Cures’ is the next one. It’s a crossover between Ranma ½ and Fruits Basket. Kyo goes on a training trip to China and finds himself with a curse from the Jusenkyo. This is not a great thing, but he finds out it nulls his Cat curse when active. Using this and his new skills from training with the Amazons, he’ll take the Fruits Basket world by storm. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11290729/1/Curses-and-Cures.

Finally, I read ‘Back in Black,’ which is primarily a Harry Potter and Supernatural crossover. Years after defeating Voldemort, Harry finds he can’t live in his loveless life anymore and asks Death to reincarnate him where he’ll have love in his life. Death reincarnates him as Dean Winchester, with no immediate access to his previous life. Watch as a Harry-influenced Dean changes the plans made by demon and angel, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10631516/1/Back-in-Black.

Warning!  There are male-male relationships in this story. It’s not for a while, but it’s pretty blatant later (but no sex scenes). If that offends you, or you just don’t want to read it, follow my policy, “Don’t Like, Don’t Read.” It’s just that simple.

That’s it for the weekend, thanks for reading and hope more people do. Remember to vote on the poll and I’ll y’all on Thursday!

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year! So this on this last weekend of the year 2018, I actually have less than normal because I had work today and Friday. I finished rereading Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell and Harry Potter and the Dark Lady. The new chapters this weekend were: Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks (Fri & Mon), Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, 4 chapters of An Essence of Silver and Steel, Reading Chronicles Book 1: To the Victor, the Spoils, Heroes Assemble!, The Unseen Hunt, and Deku: The Telekenetic Hero.

Again, I’ll start with the fanfiction and movie to TV shows and movies after that. The first one I’ll talk about is ‘Lord Over the Night Sky’ by Triser. It’s a Harry Potter and Lyrical Nanoha crossover where Vernon takes Harry to Japan when they first get him and drop him off at an orphanage. Harry ends up with Hayate and gets the ‘Book of Darkness’ instead of her. Things change and do so even more when Harry (and the others) gets his letter to Hogwarts. The chapters are shorter and the spelling is sometimes off, but it’s good otherwise. I’ve only reread 17 chapters of the 114, but this is also the first of several stories in the storyline. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7018702/1/Lord-Over-the-Night-Sky.

Next is ‘Outfoxed’ by hazeleyes180. It’s a Naruto fic where a female Kyuubi trains Naruto after things happen when he’s younger. It’s a harem fic for Naruto with girls like Hinata and Anko. He gets stronger fast, but it doesn’t mean things are easier for him. There’re no R Rated things, but they do skirt around it. The unfortunate thing is that it hasn’t been updated since August 2016. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8211184/1/Outfoxed.

Following that is the (current) last story in the Witches Secret triology, ‘Harry Potter and the Corvinus Strain.’ The story is mostly on the Witches Secret fanfiction story, it’s just missing the last two chapters. These last two can be found on the Yahoo group Rotaryfile. It mixes strongly with Underworld series. As I haven’t watched it, I can’t say anything about how the author portrays it. It’s interesting, but there’s really no one who can stop Harry in the story.

Then there was ‘Archer’ by Fencer22. It’s a Worm and Fate/Stay Night crossover where Taylor gets Archer (Counter Guardian EMIYA) as her powers, with him teaching her how to use them. She’s put under Master/Stranger protocols immediately and has to deal with them for a while. There were eight chapters when I read it, but a new chapter came out today. It’s good and I look forward to it continuing. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13137917/1/Archer.

I also read another new story by Selector called, ‘Titanfall.’ It’s a Titanfall and Worm crossover, with Taylor calling a Titan with an AI when she Triggers. It’s interesting, but only 4 chapters so far. Again, never played Titanfall, so I can’t comment on it.  Taylor’s been out all four chapters, so it will be fun once she’s up. Find out here at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13083668/1/Titanfall.

I haven’t watched anything this weekend, but I never finished what I saw last week. The first I’ll mention is “Meet the Robinsons.” I really like this movie and the music in it. It’s about a child inventor, Lewis, who thinks he’ll never amount to anything and how a young boy, Wilber, from the future works to change his mind. It’s has a good theme of never give up and to ‘Keep Moving Forward.’ This is a great movie for all ages.

I also watched “Kubo of the Two Strings” for the first time. It was a great movie, but a sad one. I was called to help with something for the last scene, but luckly I have it here at home and was able to finish it recently. It was a different kind of animation, but it wasn’t bad. Also a great movie for all ages.

I watched part one episode of “Love It of List It” on HGTV. It was okay. The wife was kinda, I don’t really want to stay here, but I think any of the ones I’m being shown are right either. I didn’t see the end, but hopefully they found what they wanted.

I also watched a few episodes of ‘Property Brothers’ (yeah, there were a lot of building/buy house shows on, I know). It was interesting, but there a lot of issues and the main episode I saw had rich kids buying their first house and calling daddy for extra money of unnecessary additions. So, I’d have to see more to really get an opinion.

I’ll also be making a 2018 section for the archive this week, look forward to it. See everyone on Thursday and have a happy start to 2019!

A Different Way of Writing

Hello everyone, I’m going to try something different for today’s post. Instead of going day by day, I’m going to just do the whole week (post) together and see how it looks. If people like this style better (after a trial week following this one), I will adopt this one instead of the old style (and vis versa). The chapters that updated this week were: Black Sky (Fri, Sat), Ashes to Flame, Memories of Iron, Devil Arts Online, Mauling Snarks (Fri, Mon, Tues [Omake]), Tsunami (Fri, Tues), History Strongest Disciple Again? (the story I beta), By Your Side is Where I Belong, Heroes Assemble (Sat, Wed), Reality Bites Worm, Jaune Ryu-Long, The Dragon Contractor, Alea lacta Est, The Reclamation of Black Magic, Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope, God Slaying Blade Works, A Sith’s Second Chance, and Devil Ninja.

Next, I’ll go through the fanfiction I read this week, followed by what I watched. I reread Reality Bites Worm, started rereading The XXXX You Say and started rereading Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell. The first new story I reread was from sakurademonalchemist and it was called, ‘Rise of the Black Dragon.’ This is another Harry Potter and KHR crossover with Harry being Xansus this time. He is left in the trash in Italy when he was young and found by Xansus’ mom after the ‘original’ Xansus was killed by one of her patrons. Events follow, but he knows that the Ninth is not is dad and he ends up at Hogwarts. It’s interesting and has 13 chapters currently. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12787598/1/Rise-of-the-Black-Dragon.

The second story I reread by them is ‘Between Lies and Truth,’ which is a KHR and Harry Potter story, again. It has Colonello being a Harry Potter who ran away from England to get away from everything and joined Comsubin (Italian Navy). Lal Mitch discovers that there is much more to her new student than a happy go lucky sniper. There are 10 chapters and it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12903809/1/Between-Lies-and-Truth.

The next from them that I reread is called ‘If Only You Knew’ and is the previous story switched. It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover where Lal Mitch is a female Harry and Colonello helps her deal with the PTSD that no-one else could help her with. It’s eleven chapters and is located here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510267/1/If-You-Only-Knew.

The last from sakurademonalchemist is called ‘Sound of Flames’ and is a pure KHR fic (with some Cardcaptor stuff thrown in). It has a female Tsuna, losing her sight after her flames are sealed. This leads to Hibari finding her sooner and helping her out. Watch how she learns to get around her handicap and still become a great potential boss. The link can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12443581/1/Sound-of-Flames.

Next I read a completely new story (for me) by them called, ‘Shield Wizard.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Rising of the Shield Hero crossover. Rising of the Shield Hero is a story about a boy named ‘Naofumi Iwatani’ who is one of four summoned to be a hero in a new world. However, as he only has a shield, he is not very powerful. After he is betrayed by those who should have been his friends, he becomes cynical and only really trusts those he has control over (like slaves). It was originally a web comic, but is now a light novel and will have an anime soon after the new year.

In the fic, Harry is summon instead of Naofumi and skips being betrayed because he expects it after being a ‘hero’ before. He still befriends some from the original story, but I haven’t read much of the original, so I can’t really say how well it follows it. Still it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11372046/1/Shield-Wizard.

Next I read a story by Quatermass called ‘Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub,’ which is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. It has the Dursley’s dying in the Fuyuki Fire and Taiga taking Harry in. When Harry goes to Hogwarts for the TriWizard Tournament, he finds Mordred (female) healed and kept under stasis until he found her. He takes her with him back to Japan and she (as a powerful human not a Heroic Spirit) is still around for the Fifth Grail War. Watch as she tries to get something from her ‘Father’ that she hasn’t had before, acceptance, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13145171/1/Knight-of-Betrayal-and-Taiga-Cub.

I then read some new stories from the author of ‘The XXXX You Say,’ Selector, starting with ‘Trekking.’ It’s a Worm fic has Taylor having a different triggering event, which leaves her paraplegic and only able to move her eyes. Her powers eventually fix that, and she can control animals, but her main skill is to be able to make any tech from the Star Trek universe. It currently has 16 chapters and is interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13071083/1/Trekking.

Next was ‘Gun Bunny’ which has Taylor triggering with an ability similar to Miss Miltia’s but with the power to make the gun/war machine real after a certain time, if it’s left out. She takes over the Merchants with a healed Squealer and make it more a protector (gang) instead of a drug dealing one. Watch as she, like any good Taylor, escalates, until she gets the right result. This fic’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13046274/1/Gun-Bunny.

Next is a Harry Potter fic with a slight Underworld crossover by the same author called, ‘Harry Potter and the Witches Secret.’

R Rated Content

This fic has Harry ‘Bonding’ tons of witches because he was not taught to control his power and thus attracts witches that are magically compatible. This is not just a Sex fic, but it has a lot of it.

R Rated Content

Harry reforms Britain and has many people under his command. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12575091/1/Witches-Secret.

The ‘sequel’ is called ‘Harry Potter and the Dark Lady,’ and I am in the middle of reading it. It is included in the previous story right after the other story ends. It has Harry dealing with a Dark Lady who wants him, but won’t play nice. However, the author also has a Yahoo group with all their fics, which can be found here – https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Rotaryfile/files.

While I was with my relatives, we watched many things (including football, which I don’t normally do, except for the Superbowl). One thing that always seemed to be on was a buying or building house shows. One of these was “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV. It has host David Bromstad helping lottery winners find their dream home. It’s interesting, but I thought that other than if I really needed a new place, I wouldn’t blow all that money I just won finding the ‘perfect’ house. (Not that I play the lottery or gamble, but that’s a different story). It’s okay to watch, but not too great to do in real life.

Next was “Maine Cabin Masters”, which has a builder, Chase Morrill, working with family and friends to help save abandoned cabins and get them ready for their new owners. This one was okay, but I felt that some of the drama was contrived a little bit to make it more interesting. I would suggest it, but only after watching it a little bit more.

There was also “Building Off the Grid” where they document people building in the middle of no-where. The one I watched was where they were building a survival cabin on a glacier in Alaska. It was interesting, but it looked very cold and I’m not sure I could have done it.

Moving On, we also watched a few episodes of the series “Bones” that ended recently. Even though I’m not really interested in the gory things, this show was really interesting. I’ve watched all the seasons except for the last few ones, and that will happen soon. The character ‘Bones’ and her partner, Booth, are some of my favorite TV personalities.

To finish up (I’ll talk about other things I watched next time) I also saw Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee in theaters and will talk about them. First off, Mary Poppins Returns is a great sequel to the original. It has the original Banks children grown up and Michael has children of his own. When an issue comes up, Mary Poppins shows up to help her older charges and her newer ones. I really love this movie and love that they include little parts in the music where you can hear parts of the original movie’s songs in it.

Spoilers

From the very beginning, Mary Poppins knows what needs to happen, but if everything was resolved quickly, none of her charges would have learned anything. So, she sets everything up so that everyone can have a learning experience. Even if the cliché of having everything fixed at the last minute exists in it.

Spoilers

Bumblebee is also a really good movie. I enjoyed hearing his original voice and learning how he got his name. It showed the American’s first contact with the Autobots and Decepticons. I liked the main female lead, Charlie, but I felt that she very much overshadowed all but John Cena’s character Agent Burns, for the humans at least. Good movie, just needs a stronger ‘human’ cast.

Spoilers

The amount of ‘The Breakfast Club’ references in the movie was amusing. There was even a Rick Roll in there. I don’t know what happens between this movie and the first Transformers movie, but I found interesting parallels between Charlie finding Bumblebee in a junkyard and Sam finding him in a used car lot. Maybe in the next of, however many more movies there’ll be, we’ll find out.

Spoilers

Thanks for reading and like or comment on this post if you prefer this format or not. See everyone on New Years Eve for the last post of the year!

Edit – Forgot the links, fixed!

An Irregular and Meltan Weekend (with some other things mixed in)

Friday

Today I finished The Irregular at Magic High School book 18 and read book 19 and read some more of Escape from the Hokage’s Hat. There were new chapters for Mauling Snarks, Ashes to Flame and History’s Strongest Disciple Again? (the one I beta read). I also read some more sakurademonalchemist.

The first new one (again for me, not overall) was ‘Swords of a Devil.’ It’s a Type Moon Universe and High School DxD crossover where Shirou is a devil and is kidnapped by the Church after he is adopted.   It was for the Holy Swords project that Kiba was a part of and it tempers his ‘saving people’ thing. Watch as he changes things, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11974930/1/Swords-of-a-Devil.

The other new one was ‘Queen of the Grimm.’ It’s a Once Upon a Time and Grimm crossover. Grimm is a TV Series about Nick Burkhardt who is a Grimm. A Grimm can see the true form of Wesen, which are part human and part animal. He defends his city from evil Wesen and helps those in trouble.

The story has Regina leaving Emma in charge of the town in order to get away from the Charmings and her mother. She ends up in Portland, OR and meets Nick. She is also a Grimm and helps him and others out. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11555943/1/Queen-of-the-Grimm.

I also watched the first few episodes of “Storage Wars: Northern Treasures.” It was okay, but the original is so much better. There’s way too much animosity and bad mouthing in this one. In the original, while they were competing, it was more of a friendly rivalry most of the time. In this one, they just seem to hate each other. I wouldn’t really recommend it, personally.

Nothing more for today, see you tomorrow.

Saturday

Today, I read more Escape from the Hokage’s Hat. There were new chapters for Relic of the Future, Harry Potter and the Stargate and Heroes Assemble! and Black Sky (Yay, it’s back. Though it’s only sporadically for now). Other than that I watched some more episodes of The Irregular at Magic High School. It was kinda a slow day.

I’ll talk about the Artemis Fowl series. It’s an 8 book series about Artemis Fowl, a genius middle school student who wants to make back the money his family had lost. He decides to do this by stealing from the fairies, who he had found out were real. He kidnaps a LEPRecon (Lower Elements Police, Recon division, because they live underground) Captain, Holly Short. The first book has him against LEPRecon, but they’re on sort of the same side after that. I like the series a lot and am looking forward to the movie I heard about next year.

Hope to have more tomorrow!

Sunday

Today was more Escape from the Hokage’s Hat and episode of The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for The Unseen Hunt and two short omakes for Taylor Varga. Other than that I worked on the Let’s Go, Meltan PoGo tasks and finally got to the fifth set with needing to do 10 raids tomorrow to complete it and a few chapters of Mists of a Dawning Sky.

Since I, once again, have very little, I’ll talk about the Outlander series. Outlander is a book series about Claire Randall who is having a second honeymoon with her husband Frank (after WWI) in Scotland. She goes through a stone circle and ends up in 1743 and gets caught up in the Scots revolt of the time. She meets Jamie Fraser and has to make a decision: try and get back to her time or live her life here. There are eight books out now with at least one more on the way. I like this book series and the TV series follows it well (overly so in some cases).

R Rated Content

There is sex in the series, but the main warning I’ll give is that there is a graphic scene in both the book and TV series where there is a male raping another male. Just to give fair warning.

That’s it for today, see everyone where I post tomorrow.

Monday

Today, I finished rereading Mists of the Dawning Sky, finished watching the first (and currently only) season of The Irregular at Magic High School and completed the Let’s Go, Meltan quests (even though I already had more than a few Meltans from sending Pokémon to Let’s Go). There were new chapters for Reincarnation Roulette, Mauling Snarks and Seerking’s Asylum. I read some more sakurademonalchemist again.

I reread their story, ‘Flames of the Black Cat,’ which is a Black Cat and KHR crossover. Black Cat is about a Sweeper (bounty hunter) named Train Heartnet who is a former member of an assassination organization called Chronos. He and his companions have to fight against Chronos and later his former best friend’s (who killed his girlfriend for changing him from an assassin) organization. I like both the anime and manga and definitely recommend it.

The story has Train reincarnating as female Tsuna, who has a male twin. Realizing he/she’ll be in a bad situation later, Train leaves and becomes a hit woman (though she hides her gender). Watch as she changes the plan of the Vongola just by existing and finds a few more reincarnated friends, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12918478/1/Flames-of-the-Black-Cat.

The other story I reread was ‘Fated Bonds,’ which is a Fate/Stay Night and Naruto crossover. It has Archer Emiya summoned along with the Shinigami. He leads a life as a blacksmith in Konoha until he finds his ‘summoner’ a young Naruto. He takes Naruto in and helps change Sasuke’s fate. Find out how by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12288979/1/Fated-Bonds.

Finally, I read ‘The Witch of 221b Baker Street,’ which is a Sherlock and Harry Potter crossover. It has Female Harry becoming disillusioned by the magical world after 4th year and getting away rather than being used. She becomes Joanne Watson and ends up as Sherlock’s roommate. You can find the story, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12245680/1/The-Witch-of-221b-Baker-Street.

There was also a new chapter for a story by ack1308 called ‘Another Way.’ It’s a Worm story where Amy (or Amelia in this case) is never taken from her father (because he isn’t captured). She grows up as a supervillain’s daughter and it changes her. Read how by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11481821/1/Another-Way.

Sherlock is a 3 episode per season, British TV series that has Sherlock in modern London. It’s okay, but has a habit of leaving the audience at a cliffhanger for a while (There was some time between season 1 and 2 if I remember correctly).

There was also a new chapter of a story by Kenichi618 called ‘Shinobi of the High Seas.’ It’s a Naruto and One Piece crossover where Naruto is immortal and after some time looking after the Elemental Nations, (he leaves Konoha to be a protector of the EN when he finds out he’s immortal. He never had a family with Hinata) he decides to see the rest of the world. He eventually meets Luffy early on his (Luffy’s) journey and hangs out with him for a while. He gets his own ship and crew. Find out how he interacts with the One Piece world here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6314806/1/Shinobi-of-the-High-Seas.

I’m writing this before I head out to a showing of the new Pokémon movie – “The Power of Us” and will write a little about it when I get back before I post this. Which will be here –

I really liked it, the movie did a good job of mixing Pokémon and real world problems everyone has. One of the main ones, and relevant to most people, is that lies only cause problems, not solve them. Lies cause a lot of the problems in the movie that could have easily been avoided otherwise. I would definitely recommend The Power of Us. It’s showing in select theaters on the 28th and the 2nd. There still might be tickets left if you want to see it (there were less than 10 people including me in the theater tonight). Hope you like it too!

Thanks for reading and see everyone on Thursday!

 

Happy Turkey Day!! (Thanksgiving)

Tuesday

Today, I finished Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils. There was only a new chapter for Revenant. Other than watching the first ten episodes of the The Irregular at Magic High Shcool, I mostly played PoGo, KHUx and Fate/GO. I was mostly busy with relatives and Thanksgiving prep.

In recompense, I’ll talk about the Inkworld Trilogy. It starts with the first book, Inkheart. It’s about a father (Mortimer or Mo), who repairs old books and his daughter (Meggie) who have a special ability, to read people and characters into and out of books. When she was little, her father accidentally read her mother into the book ‘Inkheart’ and brought out the main villain, some of his goons and Dustfinger, a fire-eater. Now, the villain wants to use their abilities to bring his strongest allies to this world. How will they get out of this? You can find out in Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath. I really love this trilogy because it tries to answer an interesting question; does a story really end when the book ends?

Hope I’ll have more for the rest of the days this week, but with Thanksgiving; who knows?

Wednesday

There wasn’t much again today, but at least there’s more than yesterday. There were new chapters for Burning Ice, Harry Potter and the Stargate, Mending the Knots, and Heroes Assemble! Played more PoGo, KHUx and Fate/GO (end of the replay of the former Christmas event).

Seerking is finally back and with the last of their main stories (that I might have mentioned or not, he hasn’t posted an actual chapter for it since the week before I started the blog. Though he might have posted an interlude that I talked about. Really, really need to make that list), ‘Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion.’ It’s a Code Geass story that has Lelouch actually planning to rebellion (and working out rather than being a lazy bum). He takes other people into consideration and has better connections with people. Things happen differently, but his goal is still the same; to get overthrow his father and find out who killed his mother. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10724053/1/Code-Geass-The-Prepared-Rebellion-V2.

This is a harem story and there are sex scenes, but because of people being people, those scenes are on his Archive of Our Own account under the same name.

The family and I went to go see the new Grinch movie tonight and I have to say I liked it a lot. The songs were good in my opinion and I liked that they gave the all the characters a better back-story. I very much enjoyed the organ that the Grinch had in his cave. All in all, I would recommend people to go see it. It’s not just a movie for young kids, all ages would like it (in my opinion, considering there were essentially three generations of my family that liked it).

Finally I reread another of sakurademonalchemist’s stories, ‘Fiery Rebirth.’ It’s a Harry Potter and KHR story where Rokudo Mokuro is Harry. Petunia sold him to the Estranio family when he was young and he gained the ability to transform into a Pheonix and have a burning day (turning him into a young kid with no memories for a few weeks). He activates this ability to get his body back from the First Generations’ Mist Guardian (Daemon Spade) and turns them both into babies. This causes a ripple effect that ends them up in England. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13014149/1/Fiery-Rebirth.

That’s it for today. See everyone when I post tomorrow!

Thursday

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope everyone who celebrates it (cause I know people from all around the world read this blog) had a happy day with lots of food and their loved ones! Moving on, because I was not on the cooking crew, I was able to read more today, even if most of it was from sakurademonalchemist. There were new chapters for How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk, Taylor Varga (finally!) and Reincarnation Roulette.

The first of the ones I reread (from sakurademonalchemist) was ‘Elemental Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Naruto crossover with the Female Tsuna character being the Sand Sibling’s cousin on their mom’s side through Nana. When she goes to visit she is able to help Gaara with his issues. She is also able to help some Konoha ninjas (including our favorite blonde ninja and his quiet stalker [I mean, fellow shinobi]). In exchange they help her deal with her issues in her hometown and with other things. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13036342/1/Elemental-Sky.

The second one I reread was ‘Sunshine.’ It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover where Renatto (Reborn as a young kid) becomes a young female Harry’s penpal. They keep in contact until he tells him how to deal with a certain Toad. She runs away after and she becomes his Sky. She causes many changes and most of them are for the better! It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12354356/1/Sunshine.

I also read some stories I haven’t read from them, with the first being ‘Golden King of Zero.’ It’s a Familiar of Zero and Type Moon universe crossover, with Louise summoning Ko Gil (Kid Gilgamesh, who is better liked) as her familiar. Ko Gil is surprised and (rightly) blames the old Vampire Troll for his problems. What will happen with him as the Gandalfr? Find out on the other side of this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11944888/1/Golden-King-of-Zero.

The second was ‘Empathy,’ which is a Harry Potter and Scorpion crossover. Scorpion is an American TV show about a group of genii who work for the government (sometimes) to solve issues other’s can’t. They’re lead by Walter, who is the smartest of them all. Paige (who’s son, Ralph, is also a genius) helps them understand other people and translates them to others. I like this show, even if I’m behind on it, so I would recommend it.

Empathy has Harry being adopted as Adrian O’Brien and is Walter’s brother. He is an empath and joins the team slightly before the show after being released from confinement in the hospital in the wizarding world (because they thought he was too powerful). He helps the team with their missions and solves problems that come up. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11903581/1/Empathy.

Next is ‘Moonlight Star,’ which is a Sailor Moon and Nanoha crossover. It has Chibiusa ending up back in time during the events of the first season. She befriends the main character of the series and helps solve things, changing the future (or at least it will). The story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11784932/1/Moonlight-Star.

The last one was ‘Devil of the Forgotten.’ It’s a Harry Potter and High School DxD (it’s non-M rated) where the female Harry is Rias’ missing sister. She shows up right before the story started with her peerage (to hard to explain quickly, other than it also mixes Hellsing). She changes many things and tries to save her sister from her fate. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11830822/1/Devil-of-the-Forgotten.

Finally, I also started rereading a story by anothvortex called ‘Escape from the Hokage’s Hat.’ It’s another Naruto is kicked out after he retrieves Sasuke back, but this one has Tsunade, Shizune and Hinata joining him. It’s an interesting story and is about 42 chapters long, but hasn’t been updated since 2012 so I don’t think it will be finished. If you can overcome that, the link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4991314/1/Escape-from-the-Hokage-s-Hat.

Nothing more, other than that I’m full of food. See everyone on Monday!
