An Arifureta Week (with Mostly Work Otherwise)

Hello friends!  Thanks to those who liked my last post!  How was your week?  Mine was okay and mostly filled with work.  I also had to deal with an ant invasion in my room this afternoon.  Any way mostly reread Desperately Seeking Ranma and continued reading Arifureta.  The new chapters this week are: An Essence of Silver and Steel, Gun Bunny, Relic of the Future, Hive Daughter (Sun & Mon), The Unseen Hunt, Taylor Varga (Omake Sun & Tues), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Short Story Drabbles (Tues, Wed & Thurs), Trail by Fire (Tues, Wed & Thurs), Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji, Hybird Hive: Eat Shard (2 Chaps) Ginny’s Plan & For the Honor of the Regiment.

I really didn’t read much else over the week, but Umei no Mai did put out a chapter of a new fic called Compass of My Soul.  It’s a Naruto SI (or self-insert) where the character is born to a merchant family in the Uchiha Clan.  However, it’s not during the normal story, it’s set during the waring clan era. It looks interesting because she remembers things about the story as she grows up.

I’ll talk about other stories that I read last week or the week before that I didn’t have time to mention.  The first is Daphne Greengrass and the Importance of Intent by Petrificus Somewhatus.  It’s a completed Harry Potter story where in 6th year Harry goes to Daphne for help in killing Voldie.  It’s about how the intent of the spell influences the effect.  Obviously a Harry/Daphne story.

The Importance of Intent: After the Credits is a sequel by the same author.  It’s a set of side stories showing the future of the characters in the original story.  Interesting and still updating occasionally.

I also read some White Angel of Auralon stories.  Gabriel is a story of Potter twins, where things went very differently.  Harry is thought a squib and sent to a muggle orphanage, while his brother is sent to the Dursleys and lives the ‘normal’ Harry Potter life.  Harry, not knowing his name, becomes an assassin.  He is hired against some Death Eaters and ends up changing the war.  Fun and complete!

Another was Hagrid’s Fame.  It’s set when Tom first opens the Chamber of Secrets.  Hagrid does some investigating and helps find and destroy the basilisk.  This changes the course of the wizarding world.  A very nice little one-shot.

Noticed is a two-shot Harry Potter story where the bullying by his house in first year leads Harry to the Hospital Wing.  There Madam Pomfrey finds evidence of his abuse and helps him to leave his relatives.  This changes many things and that’s just in the first year.  It doesn’t cover any more,but leaves it open to maybe continue.

Not the Smartest Witch is another Harry Potter story (the author mostly has Harry Potter or Voltron stories, as I never watched Voltron I’m not going to read their stories).  It has Harry learning that Hermione isn’t as smart as she claims to be and changing the way he studies.  It’s short but sweet.

That’s all I’ll talk about today.  I’m going to go see the new Lion King on Sunday, so I’ll talk about it next post!  See you then and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

It’s Short This Week (Cause I Work Tomorrow)

Hello, everyone!  I’m here again and I started working for the company instead of for a temp agency this week.  There was a lot of overtime this week and I’m doing some tomorrow.  I reread Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life and started rereading Desperately Seeking Ranma (from the point I last stopped) and did the same with Ashes of the Past.  The new chapters this week are: Black Sky, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, For the Honor of the Regiment (2 Chaps), Seerking’s Asylum, The Unseen Hunt, Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life, Service with a Smile, Code Geass: Lionheart of the Revolution, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Hive Daughter, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard, Titanfall, Trial by Fire and Ginny’s Plan.

*Spoiler Warning*

I saw Spiderman: Far From Home this weekend and I really liked it.  I knew Mysterio was a bad guy from information I heard about the comics, so I wasn’t really surprised.  The Peter ‘Tingle’ was hilarious, and it was cute how he and MJ got together at the end.  The side ‘romance’ of their friends was weird, but I guess some relationships are like that.

While the main plots of the story were interesting in Peter finally accepting that he’s more than just a neighborhood hero and getting together with MJ, the twists (especially at the end) are more interesting to me.  So, he’s won, got the girl and everything’s right.  Then, WAM, J. James Jameson reveals a video that accuses Spiderman of being the bad guy and reveals his identity to the world.  Really did not see that coming.  Finally, the last end credit scene with Fury and Hill being the Skrull Talos and his wife.  They talked with the real Fury about what happened and he’s somewhere in space with other Skrull.  Wonder how both will play out in upcoming Marvel Films.

*End Spoiler Warning*

I took a bit of a break from the Myrddin de Celestis Quest, but I did start reading Harry Potter and the Mutant Academy of Magic.  It has Harry getting mutant powers at a young age and the X-Men finding him and bringing him back to the Institute.  Now older, he’s going to Hogwarts to learn magic and get back at those who wronged him.  Read only 5 of 10 chapters, but it hasn’t been updated since 2013.  However, since it wasn’t put with the others, I can only assume it’ll be finished at some point.

I also read some of the web novel of Arifureta: From Commonplace to the World’s Strongest by Ryo Shirakome.  It follows the story of Hajime Nagumo, an otaku that was transported with all of his class to a magical world.  He was weaker than everyone else but had the attention of one of the most popular girls in class.  This makes at least one classmate mad and when Hajime protected them from a powerful monster, a ‘stray’ spell knocks him deep into the abyss.  He evolves there and becomes powerful but stops caring about his class and others.  He meets and frees Yue (a vampire princess) and gains God killing powers there.  It follows their story.  The anime just started, and the second episode comes out Monday.

That’s all I’ll talk about this week because it’s late and I have work tomorrow.  I’ll write more next week! May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
