The Quest Will Have an End … Eventually

Hello everyone! It’s Friday again and that means its post time again. I’ve finally activated my email based on this site so please email me with questions or suggestions! I started rereading Jade Angel. The new chapters this week are: Flameheart, The Dragon’s Knight, Heroes Assemble!, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Titanfall, Celestial Worm, Mauling Snarks and Archer.

I didn’t mention it last post, but I did get started on the six in the Honestly Harry series by Captain Compass, Honestly Harry – Greengrass Days and Paradise Nights. It covers the summer between their third and fourth years. After the sudden inclusion of the Greengrass sisters into their lives last year, how will both sides adjust to each of their new situations? With Fudge’s new idea suprising everyone, escaped Death Eaters on the loose and Voldie in the shadows; how will Harry and his ladies deal with everything? Still a great story and still very much an M rated story with sexual situations.

Now, it’s onto the quest to read all of sakurademonalchemist’s stories. There will still be no, firsts, seconds or nexts (it’s a hassle). Potions and Demons is a Harry Potter and InuYasha crossover. It has Snape finding the missing (read stolen) Potter will and becomes Harry’s Guardian after fourth year. He takes Harry to Japan, where Harry meets his wife and children, the Higurashis. Harry ends up in Feudal Japan when he hides with from Fawkes in the Bone Eater’s Well. He travels with the group and helps. He gets along with Sesshoumaru and meets his son when he goes back to his era. Hints of gay Harry, but nothing really mentioned. Don’t Like, Don’t Read. Unless otherwise mentioned, all fics were last updated in 2011 and are incomplete.

Foxes and Owls is a one-shot crossover between Yu Yu Hakusho and Harry Potter. Before third year, Harry goes down Knockturn Alley and buys a strange fox. He names it Kurama. Little does he know that is the injured form of Yoko Kurama, the demon fox. Will Kurama stay with Harry and Hedwig? Who knows.

Fullmetal Gundam is a Fullmetal Alchemist and Gundam Wing crossover. It has Ed ending up in the Gundam universe after being hit with ‘red water.’ He ends up with the Gundam Pilots and stays with them for two years. When he gets back to his universe, he learns it was only minutes there. When the Pilots find their way to his universe, how will his friends keep up? All the pilots and Ed are in gay relationships, Don’t Like, Don’t Read.

(I’m just going to interrupt this by saying, that I’m not gay and I’m don’t read many stories with gay characters. I have nothing against LBGT people and their relationships, but I just don’t choose to read it. Like I always say when I mention it, you have a choice to read something or not. Don’t go after the author just because you aren’t a fan of what they’re writing. I’m reading them because of my quest and because sakura doesn’t tend to do blatant relationships overall. Felt I needed to say that.)

Child of the Wing is a Harry Potter and Gundam Wing crossover where Heero is Harry. The Wizarding World comes for Heero after the war ends and he and his friends are cast into another war. When they are forced to stay in the WW to stay out of sight, how will the WW deal with the Gundam Pilots? I think all of the Gundam Wing stories for a while will have gay Pilots, so Don’t Like, Don’t Read. (also I really don’t think the author likes Relina, she’s usually cast as a stalker).

Sun of the Moon is a Sailor Moon, Harry Potter and Slayers crossover. Harry escapes to the Japan school before fifth year and meets the Sailor Scouts and Chibiusa. When he finds out his mother wasn’t from Earth, he discovers his own powers. How will he deal with his aunt, The Dragon Spooker, along with everything?

Black Cat of Hogwarts is a Black Cat and Harry Potter crossover. Sirius’ son Niko disappears when his father was captured and is presumed dead. Train Heartnet goes to Hogwarts and befriends Harry. Harry joins Chronos and becomes XIV. How will their stories change with each other as a part of them?

Raven Talon Potter is a Maximum Ride and Harry Potter crossover. Maximum Ride is a series about the title character (Maximum ‘Max’ Ride) and her flock of family. They’re hybrid Human-Bird people who were experimented on by The School. The series deals with them escaping and dealing with The School. I’ve maybe read the first book, but it’s been a while.

In the fic, Raven (Harry) is Fang’s twin and has been held by The School for many years. Only when he meets Fang again is he able to escape and return to his original form (explained in the story). How will Raven be able to help them?

Dou’s Brother is a Harry Potter and Gundam Wing crossover where Dou is Harry’s Brother. Dou discovers Harry on assignment in Surrey and they bond over pranks. They eventually learn that Dou is Harry’s brother. How will the other Pilots handle the Wizarding World along with their own war? Another gay Pilots story. Don’t Like, Don’t Read.

Marauders and Gundams is another Harry Potter and Gundam Wing crossover. Harry escapes Grimmauld Place and meets Dou. They start a relationship (yes, they’re gay. Don’t Like, Don’t Read!) and the Pilots decide to go to Hogwarts to escape from OZ.

Gundam Senshi is Gundam Wing and Sailor Moon Crossover where Dou is Peruru, the Dream Elf. The future changes for some reason and Crystal Tokyo is lost. In order to get it back, Dou has to find the Sailor’s descendants and stop the war. As he meets the other Pilots he learns that they are the other descendants. Will they be able to bring back Crystal Tokyo? Don’t know, hasn’t gotten that far yet.

Ichigo Ichihara is a Harry Potter and xxxHolic (with Bleach slightly) crossover. xxxHolic is a manga turned anime that parallels Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. It follows Kimihiro Watanuki and his working at Yuko Ichihara’s shop. It deals with magic and he learns that everything comes at a price.

In the fic, Vernon leaves Harry on Yuko’s lawn soon after the Dursleys find him. She raises him as her son and he gets some of her personality. He sends a copy to Hogwarts, but how long will it last? And will the Wizarding World be able to deal with the real him when the time comes?

That’s all for this week, hope you have a great weekend! I’ll remind everyone that tomorrow will have the Shiny Lotad and Castform event on PoGo. Be sure to get those research quests! See everyone Tuesday! May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

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!
