Homestuck and Some Other Things

There’s been a marked improvement on visitors since Monday! Yay! I hope my readers, new and old, continue to read and feel free to make comments or send me messages! Please, read on!

Tuesday

Today I read a lot of pages of the online mspaint story I mentioned earlier – Homestuck. After you get a hundred or so pages in (very short pages with some videos) it becomes a lot more interesting (and convoluted. It has not stopped getting more so, so far). I ended the on the page 522 for that one today (with no end in sight).

Other than that, I read some more chapters of Viridescent and read some manga chapters of the anime I previously mentioned, Black Lagoon. In doing so, I was surprised to see that the hiatus it was on (since 2014) ended long enough last year to finish the current story act (though it is now back on hiatus).

I forgot to mention, but I also started rereading a fanfiction called ‘Desperately Seeking Ranma’ by PixelWriter1 a day or two ago. It is a Ranma ½ fic with many OCs (Original Characters) that is set after the main storyline (of both the anime and manga) where many things go wrong right afterwards and Ranma and Kasumi leave Nerima. The story starts after said event (but the event in question is in a short story by the same author called ‘Aftermath’ with a one-shot direct sequel called ‘The Fugitives’) and is mostly centered on Nabiki as the main character. It has ‘magical girls’, ‘demons’ (both the more traditional ‘kill everything’ ones and ones that are more ‘nice aliens’ who just want ice cream and chocolate), portals to other realities and much, much more. It even has a crossover with “Sailor Moon” (although the author didn’t plan on it at first. Also, not a good read for fans of Sailor Moon). The link to the main story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9916589/1/Desperately-Seeking-Ranma. The link to Aftermath is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9710573/1/Aftermath.   Finally, the link to The Fugitives is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10886943/1/The-Fugitives.

I like this story very much and reread it many times. Sadly the author has not updated in two years. This doesn’t mean we haven’t heard from them, just that they have confessed to being stuck and not having much time to write. I hope they get the time to write and post soon!

For those who do not know, Sailor Moon is one of the oldie, but goodie animes (as long as you watch the Japanese sub version, the English Dub is horrible because they cut out a lot to make it a kids show. Like the lesbian characters in a later season, making one of them male. On a slightly related note, did you guys know the that the English version of Pokemon cut out an episode in the original series [Around the Safari Zone], where there is a gun and Ash gets shot?). There is a newer remake of it that is condensed from the original and more closely follows the manga called, “Sailor Moon Crystal”. I haven’t really seen it, but it looks okay. The series is about a girl named Usagi (Yes, it means rabbit) Tsukino who encounters a talking cat (named Luna, really original) that gives her the means to transform in Sailor Moon (making her a Moon Rabbit). She and her fellow Sailor Scouts fight against the dark forces while trying to find their princess. Like I said, check it out (just not the dub).

The last thing I did was read a new chapter of a story called ‘A Sith’s Second Chance’ by VFSNAKE (a really good and fairly prolific writer, I mean 96 stories!). It is a Star Wars fic that has Darth Vader being transported to Naboo at the beginning of Episode I after he dies in Episode VI. He has a younger (non-cybernetic) body and a desire to correct all the wrongs that happened in the universe while setting things up to eventually face his younger self. I quite like this one as well, along with many of VFSNAKE’s fics. The link the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12856644/1/A-Sith-s-Second-Chance and the link to VFSNAKE’s profile is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/979159/VFSNAKE.

That’s it for today. Tomorrow’s only a line away!

Wednesday

I’ll start off with Seerking’s normal Wednesday story update. This one is called ‘Ashikabi of Thunder and Lightning’. It is a Sekirei fanfiction. In this one, the main character’s (Minato) mother, Takami decides that there is no way to stop her son (Unlike the original) from becoming an Ashikabi (a mate of the Sekirei) and sends twin Sekirei to help him in the hopes he will wing them. He does and this leads to many things good and bad to happen. Look it up if it seems interesting! The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973901/1/Ashikabi-of-Thunder-and-Lightning.

Only one new chapter today and it was from Warlock. I finished off Viridescent and read a few more chapters of Desperately Seeking Ranma. Other than that I read many more pages of Homestuck today, getting to page 1931. Wondering when the end was, I looked it up and found that it had over 8000 pages before the end! It’s too bad it wasn’t over 9000, but some things can’t be helped. Things are making a lot more sense, in a twisted sort of way. Also, the character John has an obsession with the movie Con-Air’s ending (not that I don’t like it myself), as shown on the page I ended on.   I really am emotionally on the same page as the troll on this one.

No more for today, tomorrow is now today (look down!)

Thursday

I was busy today, so there’s not much I read today. I got to page 1994 of Homestuck, where we finally are about to learn more about the trolls. Reread all of the 7 chapters of A Sith’s Second Chance. The only new story I read was ‘I Aim to Misbehave’ by White Squirrel.

It’s a Harry Potter and Firefly crossover with the prologue showing Harry and his friends helping the evacuation of Earth (very pre-Firefly) and Harry finally leaving too in a sleep pod on a ship. He wakes up in very distant future and is looking to find his descendants. It’s been a while since I watched Firefly (Sadly), so I don’t know where it converges with it. However, I think it is a divergent timeline anyway. It’s only a prologue and the first chapter so far, but looks interesting. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12435331/1/I-Aim-to-Misbehave.

In the absence of more things I’ve read today, I’ll talk about another book series I’m a fan of – the Pendragon Series by D. J. MacHale. The series is about a young boy named Bobby Pendragon who is taken by his Uncle Press on an adventure to other dimensions to save all the dimensions from Saint Dane, who is trying to them down. He has to do this because he is a ‘Traveler’, one of 10 chosen to protect the dimensions. He records his journey on journals that he sends back to his friends back home. The series has 10 books in the main story and 3 ‘origin story’ compilations on the other Travelers. Look it up, it’s really good!

Also on PoGo, there are a now many Kanto (Gen 1) Pokemon available.  In addition to that the three legendary birds will be in raid (with a chance for Shiny) until the 20th.  After that for a month and few days until Oct. 23rd, Mewtwo will be a regular raid boss (maybe in preparation for Deoxys being the new EX raid boss).  Finally the Gen 1 regionals will be available in 7 km eggs, though I don’t know the stats for that happening.  This is through the end of the month.  Good luck to everyone!

That’s it for this post. See you after the Weekend. Hope everyone has a good one!

No One for a Week!

Wow, nobody’s even visited the site since last Thursday. I’m sad to realize this, but maybe I need to advertise more. If someone has suggestions or thinks I’m doing something wrong, please tell me. Or if you want to be read something and give my thoughts on it, let me know and I’ll get around to it.

Tuesday

So to finish yesterday’s new fanfictions (they’re all still Quatermass’ stories), the first is ‘Separated at Birth’. It’s a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover happening after the events of the HP books. It’s revealed that Harry is not really a Potter (causing Ginny and most people to leave him), but was really stolen from another universe to become the Boy Who Lived. Taking few people with him (Hermione, Luna and George) he gets Zelretch’s help to go to meet his now younger twin sister, Rin Tohsaka a year or so before the Grail War. Watch as his presence changes many things. It has 22 chapters and is ongoing. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12817778/1/Separated-at-Birth.

The last one from yesterday was, ‘Plenipotent Player Prince.’ It’s a crossover between Code Geass and Overlord. Overlord is a light novel/anime about a guy who stays logged in on a VR game on its last day until the servers shut down. When it happens, he and the NPCs in his guild’s base are transported to a new world (including a succubus he changed to description to love him). Now a real life lich, he and the now alive NPCs take this world by storm after he takes the guild’s name as his own, Ainz Ooal Gown. In the fic, instead of being transported to a new world, most the characters a reborn as Code Geass characters, with Ainz Ooal Gown being Lelouch. See how this changes things. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13001843/1/Plenipotent-Player-Prince.

Moving on to today, I have more Qautermass fics (Yay). No really, they’re good. The first for today was, ‘Gorgon and Thanatos’. It’s another Harry Potter and Fate/Zero Crossover (the author has a few). It has things going wrong again after the books and Harry going to be a guardian of a hidden library in Fuyuki a few years before the Fourth Grail War. He isn’t a participant, but ends up accidentally have a Heroic Spirit of his own as a familiar. The war is much different because of it. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12299723/1/Gorgon-and-Thanatos.

Next is ‘Parva Sub Ingenti’. It means, ‘The small under the huge’ and it’s a crossover between Harry Potter (surpise!) and “Gate: Thus the JDF Fought There”. Gate is a story about a Gate to a medieval magical world appearing in Japan and an army coming through to attack. The attack is eventually repelled and the JDF (Japanese Defense Force) is sent through to find out about this new world and get reparations. One soldier is Itami (an otaku who happened to be there when the attack happened and helped save people). He leads a group to map this new world and help as many pretty girls as possible and have them follow him around. Also, there’s a huge dragon!

The fic has Harry, Hermione and Luna going through the veil (which leads to the world on the other side of the Gate) several years before the Gate would open. Harry ends up saving someone who would become a villain in the original story and living his life there. See how this massively changes the story. Also Sirius is still alive. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13041939/1/Parva-Sub-Ingenti.

Following is ‘Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell’. It’s a crossover between Thor and Fate/Zero that has Loki becoming the master of Caster (Medea) in the Fourth Grail War after being saved by Zelretch (this is after the events of the movie Thor, before he meets Thanos). He uses this as a way to work through his frustrations about his family and learn more about himself. It’s finished and the author plans to make a sequel at a later time.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12190704/1/Light-the-Blue-Touch-Paper-and-Run-Like-Hell.

‘Cambion’ is a Harry Potter and High School DxD crossover. It has Harry as a half devil with Riser Phenex being his father. James kicks him out of the Potter family for having a different father. Harry finds out he is a devil in his fifth year from Hermione and is asked to be Rias’ betrothed instead of his father. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12928183/1/Cambion.

The last fic (for today) from Quartermass is ‘Neopolitan and the Goblet of Fire’. It is a crossover between Harry Potter and RWBY in which a female Harry is Neopolitan. During the events at the end of the 3rd season, the Goblet of Fire summons Neo back to the Harry Potter world. She then decides to take revenge on her father and Sirius (who threw her through the Veil at a young age). It’s interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12723696/1/Neopolitan-and-the-Goblet-of-Fire.

I read a few more chapters of Remnant’s Reclaimer and started rereading a RWBY fanfiction called ‘The Remnant Knight’ by Masseffect-TxS.  It has Jaune sending Pyrrha away at the end of the 3rd season and facing Cinder himself.  This reveals an ability not even he knew about in his bloodline that helps him, at a cost.  Watch as he overcomes it and sets the world on a new path. Is a harem fic.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11885368/1/The-Remnant-Knight.

Homestuck was mentioned in a fic and I went looking for it. I only got to the 27th page, but it looks … weird. It’s an MS paint adventure about, trolls, I think. I’ll get back to it later. The link to it is here – https://www.homestuck.com/.

Lastly I read a new chapter from Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies That Won’t Stop Bugging Me. For those who don’t remember, it’s a one shot/short story repository for him.

See you tomorrow.

Wednesday

I read a lot again today, so get ready! I read some more chapters of Becoming a Man Among Men. However I read more of Quartermass’ fic today… sorry going to be for a little bit more. The first one is called, ‘Wings of the Forsaken’ and is a Harry Potter and “Sekirei” crossover. Sekirei is a manga/anime about a young Japanese man who gets caught up in a contest between aliens called Sekirei who are forced to fight because of a mad man’s whims. Most of the Sekirei are beautiful girls who bond with their ‘destined one’ and fight until only one remains. Minato ‘wings’ several Sekirei and is also forced to compete. It’s interesting, but you can tell it’s a story for young men (what with all the panty shots).

Wings of the Forsaken has Harry cast out of the Potter’s for being Lupin’s son (who helped Lily overcome the love potion James has her under) after the Halloween attack. He is eventually left in Japan and is taken in by Miya. After taking over the company in charge of the Sekirei, Harry is forced back to England for the Tri-Wizard Tournament. He, his parents and Sekirei will take Britain by storm. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12494380/1/Wings-of-the-Forsaken.

The next one is called ‘Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me’. It’s a Pirates of the Caribbean movie series and Sekirei crossover that has Jack Sparrow reborn as Minato. Watch as he makes the contest very interesting (and writes his former life as books). The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510813/1/Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho-An-Ashikabi-s-Life-for-Me.

The last one from Quartermass (again today) is called ‘Warlock’. It is a Code Geass and Harry Potter crossover. It has Harry going through the veil in fifth year and ending up in the Code Geass universe. He becomes Kallen’s boyfriend and helps out their group before Zero shows up. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12995318/1/Warlock.

Another new story I read was called ‘The Black Emperor’ by Primordial Vortex. It’s a pure Code Geass fic were Lelouch is more prepared and has Milly on his side already. It is a harem fic. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290311/1/The-Black-Emperor.

I also completely reread a fic called ‘The Ash Connection’ by I am Lu. It has Ash and all his former and current traveling companions (It’s set in Black and White), rivals and friends on the run from a Team Rocket controlled Mewtwo. It involves the G-Men and it’s politics. Also has many pairings including Ash/Misty and sequel. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9103189/1/The-Ash-Connection.

See you tomorrow!

Thursday

Not that much overall read today, but again there are a few Quartermass fics. The first is ‘Disquiet’ and it is a Harry Potter and “Black Lagoon” crossover. Black Lagoon is about a shipping company who does illegal things for money who capture a Japanese salary man for a disk he is transporting. Rock, as he is later called, is abandoned to die by his company and falls in with the Lagoon company.  Watch as he, Revy (a two-handed female sharpshooter), and the rest of the crew handle their jobs and the mess that follows.  I also started rewatching the anime a few days ago to remind myself of the series, I would definitely recommend it.

In Disquiet, Harry (now Hal) is the partner of a character from later in the series, Frederica Sawyer. She (in the story) is Bellatrix’s daughter. They were thought dead by the Wizarding World (WW) after James and Sirius try to make Horcruxes from them (and says they were killed practicing dark magic). When Harry’s brother dies in his fifth year, the WW comes looking for them. Only to find them very much willing to kill anyone who comes after them with the intent to kill. It happens during the Killer Maid arc and doesn’t have much to do with the main characters of Black Lagoon. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12459701/1/Disquiet.

The other one from Quartermass today is a one-shot called ‘Coconuts?’. It’s a Fate/Stay Night – Unlimited Blade Works afterstory that has Zelretch sending Monty Python and the Holy Grail for Arturia to watch… yeah. I would not recommend for the actual King Arthur to ever watch it, as hilarious as it is. On a side note, when a friend from summer camp (when I was in high school) heard I hadn’t seen it, he recited it to me verbatim over the next few days (impressive right). I have since seen it.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12112155/1/Coconuts.

Other than a few more chapters of Becoming a Man Among Men, I read a new chapter of Parva Sub Ingeti and a new fic, ‘Reaching for a Dream’ by Noodlehammer. It is the first of a series of Naruto fics and the only one not a crossover. It has an older Naruto than the other characters normally his age and different female Kyuubi. Warning! This is an M fic for a reason. It has many Lemons in it (if you don’t know what that means, it is slang for R rated interactions between men and women). Don’t like, don’t read.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9920512/1/Reaching-for-a-Dream.

Finally, I finished adding the new characters to my own fanfiction and am looking forward to writing more to eventually post it.  Remember, I want to have at least 10 chapters from the original fanfiction in it before I post it.  That’s it for this post, long as it is (over 1900 words!). I’ll see you on Monday and hope more people at least come to the site!
