It’s Almost Zeraora Time!

Tuesday

Today, I finished Harry and Ginny: A Love Story and watched more of Log Horizon. Well, I got to where it’s currently up to at chapter 33. Like I said yesterday, it hasn’t been updated since 2015, but other story have been posted/updated by the author. The only new chapter today was from Service with a Smile.

With my rewatching of Log Horizon (I looked it up and the light novel finally got a new book out recently after a few years), I decided to look up some of it’s fanfiction. Both of them are about them trying to get home. The first one ‘A Gate Home’ by knaka148 started last year and is only two chapters. In it the two opposing guilds work together to get home. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12558038/1/A-Gate-Home.

The second one is an older one written in 2016 and is finished. It’s called ‘Horizon Breach’ by GBRK.   It has them using blank summoning to send people back. However, they still have their powers… See how things turn out, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11936165/1/Horizon-Breach.

After that, I started rereading an old favorite of mine that had its sequel end relatively recently, ‘Fate’s Gamble’ by Lupine Horror. At its base it’s a Type Moon and Harry Potter crossover, because it has elements from several Type Moon stories. However, because of the Kaleidoscope (and Zelretch insanity) there are a few other stories represented (even if it’s not until later in the story). I really liked this one and enjoyed it and its sequel, ‘Fate’s Gamble: Round Two.’

In the story, Zelretch trying to connect to world’s he’s not on/has died in. He does it wrong and Fate uses the unused power to change several Harry’s destinies. The one the story is about has Harry (age 5) ending up on the Shapeless Isle (the Gorgon’s home. Ya know from Greek Mythology) in Zelretch’s universe. There he meets Stheno and Euryale (Medusa’s sisters, if ya didn’t know) and becomes Zelretch and Waver’s (a least he has one human influence) student. Read what happens when this Harry goes to Hogwarts, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9586702/1/Fate-s-Gamble and here’s Lupine Horror’s link – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4199791/Lupine-Horror.

Today was also the release of Gen 4 Pokémon on PoGo! They only released the starters and a few of the beginning Pokémon, but it’s a start. Though I wonder where the rest of Gen 3 is? Who knows, I certainly don’t.

That’s it for today, see you tomorrow.

Wednesday

Today was mostly rereading Fate’s Gamble and finishing the first season of Log Horizon. There were a few more new chapters than yesterday including: Harry Potter and the Stargate, several Game On! 3 0 chapters (that finished it off. 4 0 should be next in Yu Yu Hakusho) and Heroes Assemble! and Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Bugging Me (I’m going to call this SAfPBtWSBM … yeah no, how about just Seerking’s Asylum, that works).

Then there was the update for Seerking’s next story on the rotation, ‘Kaien’s Fate, Aizen’s Experiment and Ichigo’s Sister.’ It’s a Bleach story about Kirika, a young soul girl who Aizen and his crew used (along with many others) in an experiment to implant a part of Kaien’s zanpakuto and Metastacia’s energy into another soul. She was the only one to survive and got to the Living World. She’s adopted by the Kurosaki’s and becomes a slightly younger sister to Ichigo before his mother’s attacked. She wants revenge on Aizen’s group and will do anything to get it. See how she changes things here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973625/1/Kaien-s-Fate-Aizen-s-Experiment-and-Ichigo-s-Sister.

Other than that, I watched the 6th Detective Conan Movie – The Phantom of Baker Street. It has a VR game that gets taken over by an A.I. who wants the game to be finished to solve a murder. I also learned that Wildbow, the writer of Worm, has started a sequel called “Ward.” As I still haven’t read Worm, I’m not gonna read it yet, but thought those who have read it would like to know.

Nothing more for today, post is tomorrow (IT WILL BE).

Thursday

Today was more Fate’s Gamble. I also started rereading one of kb0’s older stories, ‘Harry Potter: Choices.’ It has Harry deciding that he has choices the summer after Fifth year. He decides to take control of his life, starting with who his magical guardian is. This is a Harry/Ginny Soul Bond story. It’s finished and I like it a lot. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8820097/1/Harry-Potter-Choices.

In yesterday’s Seerking’s Asylum (see isn’t that easier), Seerking mentioned that The Aura King adopted one of his Plot Bunnies. The one called ‘Demon Lord of the Swarm’ (it’s chapters 86 -90 of Seerking’s Asylum) and they renamed it – ‘Demon Lord of the End.’ It has Taylor, after the end of Worm, becoming a Demon Lord in charge of a dungeon. She has to make sure she’s not defeated or the world (the new one, not the Worm one) will be destroyed.   There are two chapters and it was only started on the 4th of this month, so I’m looking forward to a fairly regular update schedule (hopefully). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13084089/1/Demon-Lord-of-the-End.

I watched the 10th Detective Conan Movie – The Private Eye’s Requiem. It has Conan and the crew forced to solve a case or they and their friends will be blow up by watches they put on for a theme park. Didn’t do much more than that.

Oh yeah, I figured I would mention that Zeraora (the newest mythical Pokémon) would be available via code for Game Stop (In America at least) starting tomorrow (again only in America, everyone else has been able to get it for most of this month) til sometime next month (presumablely until before the Let’s Go games come out). Reshiram and Zekrom will also be available until the 28th (of this month) starting tomorrow at Target. This is for the Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games only. Figured people would want to know. https://www.serebii.net/ is where I find this info if anyone wants to know. It won’t remention the above info until tomorrow, but it will be there.

Since I have a few extra minutes, Yu Yu Hakusho is about Yusuke Urameshi, a delinquent.  He dies sacrifices himself to save a kid from a car, only to learn it was pointless.  The kid would have survived and no one (not even the afterlife) expected him to do anything.  Now he gets a chance to come back to life, but even if he does; his life will be changed forever.

See everyone on Monday!

Monday, Monday

Friday

Sorry again for being late for the last post. I got the normal new chapter for Mauling Snarks along with a new one for Cambion. Other than reading some more Harry Potter and the Daft Morons, I read some new chapters for fics I haven’t mentioned before and actually read a physical book!

The first of the new chapters was for ‘Master Potter of Kamar-Taj’ by Ryuko monogatari. If I mentioned this one before, bear with me (I looked when I got the last updates and couldn’t find them mentioned on the corresponding days on the blog). It’s an Avengers and Harry Potter crossover where Harry studies under Doctor Strange before going to Hogwarts. It’s almost to the end of first year, storyline wise. I enjoy it and it updates monthly recently. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12256909/1/Master-Potter-of-Kamar-Taj.

The second fanfic I read only the first chapter, but it’s finished. It’s called ‘Second Chances are Fought For’ by fg7dragon. It’s a Naruto and Fate/Stay Night crossover that has Naruto being summoned by Rin instead of Archer (EMIYA). He changes everything. It’s a cool fic for only having 4 chapters, so I definitely suggest it. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12990444/1/Second-Chances-are-Fought-For.

fg7dragon is a good author and I would recommend them, but there are a few fics they haven’t updated in a good while. I’ll get around to them, but Naruto is a common theme between most of their fics. The link to their FF.com page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2085016/fg7dragon.

The last new chapter was from ‘Game On! 3 0’ by nordiamus. It’s the third in the Game On! Series. It’s about Harriet Potter who died sometime after becoming the Master of Death. She chooses to reincarnate several times helping heroes in order to save her mother’s soul. She at least gets a Gamer system to help her. The first fic has her in KHR. The second fic has her in Fullmetal Alchemist. The one I got several updates for today has her in InuYasha. The link to the first one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11799646/1/Game-On.

Well since I just mentioned two series I haven’t talked about yet, I’ll talk about them before I go into the book. Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) is about Edward and Alphonse Elric who are alchemists. Their mother died when they were young (and their father left before that [the story eventually explains it]) so they tried to do the forbidden and bring her back. As a reward, Ed lost a leg and an arm and Al lost his body and his soul is bonded into a suit of armor. Ed gets an automail (a fully functioning mechanical replacement) arm and leg and joins the military to find a way to recover what was taken from them. Many things happen along the way and long hidden secrets are revealed. I would very much suggest this, in its manga and second anime at least. The original FMA was okay for a while, but then diverted and I at least wasn’t a huge fan. FMA: Brotherhood was really good though.

InuYasha is about a young 1990’s high school girl, Kagome, getting dragged into a well at her home (in a shrine) and ending up in the Edo period (between 1603 and 1868, don’t know when during it). There she finds out that demons are real and that she is the reincarnation of the priestess Kikyo who died in that period over half a century ago. Kikyo was the guardian of the Shikon Jewel and it reappeared in Kagome’s body. She frees a half dog-demon InuYasha (who was sealed by Kikyo and has a history with her) to save her from another demon who wants the jewel. Soon the Jewel is shattered (by Kagome on accident) and she, InuYasha and friends they find along the way have to find all the pieces to complete the Jewel and stop others from using it for evil. Luckily, she can at least return home sometimes, though InuYasha can follow her. I recommend this one as well, both the manga and anime.

Finally, I read the first book in the Baccano! series that I mentioned last time. It’s called “The Rolling Bootlegs” and focuses on how both groups get their immortality, though not much about the first group. I was wrong last time, there are 22 books out and the 23rd is the one delayed. That’s it for today, see you on the next line!

Saturday

I read several completely new fics today, but also some new chapters. The new chapters were from Harry Potter and the Stargate, Stand Together and Smile and Relic of the Future. I also read till chapter 64 (of 84) of Harry Potter and the Daft Morons.

The first new fic was ‘Protector of the Fairies’ by Takei Daloui. It’s a Fairy Tail and Bleach crossover. It has Bleach elements built into the Fairy Tail world rather than having a character (or two) just dropped into it. It’s interesting, I haven’t finished it (I’m reading it slowly on the side) as it has 251 chapters and it’s not finished yet. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9546139/1/Protector-of-the-Fairies.

The second new story is ‘Relics of the Past’ by Cyrro. It’s Naruto fic where Iruka is from Whirlpool and takes Naruto in when he’s young. Along with a female Itachi and Sasuke, things are gonna be weird. I also haven’t finished this one because it’s 183 chapters. I’m going to be reading these with a few chapters a day, if that. The link to this fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12337052/1/Relics-of-the-Past.

The last new story is called ‘Clouds in the Sky’ by EriLenx07. It’s a crossover with Harry Potter and KHR. It has a female Harry meeting Hibari in her neighborhood after 5th year (because Vernon is in the mafia). They then spend many hours together. At least, Harriet is back at Hogwarts in the story now (the author spent too much time pre-Hogwarts in my opinion). It’s unfinished, but interesting. The story link is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12482507/1/Clouds-in-the-Sky.

Finally I read the pdf version of the second of the Baccano! light novels, “1931 – The Grand Punk Railroad – Local Episode.” By the way, the author’s name is Ryohgo Narita (I don’t think I mentioned that).

See you soon!

Sunday

There’s not much for today, though there were quite a few new chapters today. Here’s a list of them: The Unseen Hunt, It Gets Worse (this was the last chapter), The Remnant Knight, Enough (the second to last chapter) and Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers. I also finished rereading Harry Potter and the Daft Morons (I hope Sinyk gets back to it soon).

I read two chapters of Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock. However, the only other thing was the pdf of the third Baccano! light novel, “1931 – The Grand Punk Railroad – Express Episode.”

What shall I talk about in this free space? Hm, how about I talk about one of my favorite manga/animes Case Closed (in America, even though it stopped being dubbed after 6 seasons) or Detective Conan. It’s about Shinichi Kudo (I’m going with the Japanese names in English style. Why? Because I watch mostly the sub version to keep up), whose a high school detective that has helped the police solve many cases. He goes to a theme park with his not-girlfriend Ran Mori and after he solves a case there, follows some shady men. One of them catches him and forces him to take a poison that should kill him. However, it actually de-ages him to elementary school age. He eventually ends up staying with Ran and her (not very good) detective father, Kogoro Mori. Neither knows who he really is and he depends on his inventor neighbor to help him solve Kogoro’s cases for him. All while trying to find the people who did this to him to get back his body. This is no easy task, as is shown in that it’s still going after 24 years (the manga started in 1994 and isn’t finished yet). It has over 1000 chapters (though it’s on hiatus for the author’s medical treatment), over 900 episodes and over 20 movies. It must be doing something right. The animation is older at first, but gets better as the years go by. I really recommend this to anyone who is a fan of mystery shows.

Nothing more for today, post is tomorrow!

Monday

My dog kept me up again because of storms, but I slept late so I’m okay. The only new chapter (from a story I’ve already talked about) I got today was Mauling Snarks, I guess to make up for yesterday’s haul. I got a new chapter for a Seerking story (one that’s not in his normal rotation) called ‘Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right.’ It’s a Ranma ½ story that has Akane not being able to be his fiancée after a diversion in one of the events that makes it so that only Shampoo and Ukyo can marry him. This changes many things. Want to know which? Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12327523/1/Ranma-Happenstance-Gone-Right.

I also rewatched the first few episodes of Log Horizon. It’s a light novel turned anime about a lot of people playing an online game being transported into the game. The main character, Shiroe, along with his friends have to figure out how to live in this new situation while trying to figure out what happened. I like this one and have watched it several times, I hope a third season eventually comes out.

I also reread ‘The Road not Taken’ by sbmcneil. It’s a Harry Potter fic that has Sirius meeting Harry after he runs away in the third book and taking him away for the summer. It’s a short story (only 14 chapters) with Harry/Ginny. I like it and I hope you do to. If you want it, it’s here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12072766/1/The-Road-not-Taken.

I last story I started rereading today was ‘Harry and Ginny: A Love Story’ by Epeefencer. It’s a Soul Bond that happens after the Chamber. Harry is drawn to help Ginny and its discovered they have a soul bond. Forces work to help and protect them, while Dumbledore is trying to find out why his plans have gone wrong. It’s interesting and I suggest it, even if it hasn’t been updated since 2015 (the author updates some of their other fics, sometimes). The link to it is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7483183/1/Harry-and-Ginny-A-Love-Story.

I’ll call it a day and get this posted! See you on Thursday! (For real this time!)

The Long (Holiday) Weekend

Friday

Today I continued rereading Legion, but I didn’t finish and only got to chapter 20. There were some new chapters that I read for Queen of the Seas, Cambion, Mauling Snarks and Parva Sub Ingenti. I also played some Pokémon Sun.

As I might have mentioned in my first post, I have all of the Pokémon on the main games in my Pokémon Bank. When I say that I mean that I have at least one copy of every Pokémon released (I hatched eggs from the fully evolved forms to get it so. I got the mythical ones from the events for the 20th anniversary.). One day when I was bored, I decided to level all of them up to 100.

It’s not easy let me tell you that. I have ‘level caps’ that I get them to then go to the next one to raise to that level cap. It goes 20, 35, 50, 70, 90 and finally 100. I can proudly say that none of them are less than level 35.

What I’ve done typically is to restart a game that I’ve cleared all but one my Pokémon in (cause one has to be in the party) and start playing. Since none of my target Pokémon are below 35 I train up extra or event Pokémon (like my hat Pikachus. It’s too bad the ones in the original games can’t evolve, I have enough for that. Maybe with the Let’s Go games I’ll be able to transfer some of my hat Raichus. Who knows?  I also finally got Celebi on PoGo thanks to the psychic event!

Anyway, the only other story I read was ‘Secrecy’ by Serena530. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry learns Ron and Dumbledore are betraying him at the beginning of 2nd year. He starts staying away from Ron and Hermione (because she doesn’t notice the changes Ron forces on him) and becomes friends with Ginny. Watch how Harry and Ginny deal with the challenges that come before them! I like this one, but the author hasn’t updated it in a while. The story link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7684812/1/Secrecy.

Nothing else for today, I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!

Saturday

Hm, so I did a lot today. First of all I finished off Legion (wow four chapters, snort). Second I read the new chapters for Queen of the Seas and Relic of the Future. There was also a new chapter for a story called ‘Sealed Legacy’ by Psycho G. It’s a Naruto story where when Naruto is young, Jiraya stumbles upon a Uzumaki seal that when he activates it (not knowing what it does) almost kills him sending his knowledge and chakra to Naruto. Naruto slowly gets this knowledge and gets some of Jiraya’s habits too. It’s a good story but hasn’t been updated in while, so I was surprised to see it. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7344530/1/Sealed-Legacy.

Third, I started rewatching Darker Than Black because I kept getting updates for a story about it from an author I’m following named Brennus. They wrote a one-shot I mentioned earlier called ‘In the Heat of the Night.’ The story was called ‘Darker Than Black – Heaven’s Gate,’ and I rewatched some of it to remember the characters and story.

Darker Than Black is an anime about Hei, who has the ability to control electricity. He is a ‘contractor,’ someone who’s lost their emotions to get a power. They and ‘Dolls’ (those who also lost their emotions, but can track people instead) evolved from some people when the ‘Heaven Gate’ and ‘Hell Gate’ appeared one day. Hei or as he is dubbed ‘The Black Reaper’ works for ‘The Syndicate’ in tracking down targets and information.

Hei is not a normal contractor as he shows some emotions. He works with a Doll named Yin, an animal consciousness transfer contractor (this means that he can transfer his consciousness to animal) who is stuck in a cat’s body after his own died and a bitter human named Huang who doesn’t like contractors who is the leader. Hei wants to find his sister who disappeared and gets caught up in many events.

I only watched 13 of the 24 episodes (for now), but it was enough for what I needed and read the story. It’s okay, the story takes place after the second series and the author kills off the main female protagonist so another can get together with the main character. There’s only one chapter left, so we’ll see how the ending goes. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13001503/1/Darker-than-Black-Heaven-s-Gate.

Fourth, I started looking for a story I couldn’t remember the name of and now I think its been deleted from Fanfiction.net. I have a store of all the stories on it up to 2015 (no, I didn’t make it) that I eventually found a while back. I eventually found it, ‘Survival of the Lamest’ and its sequel ‘Revenge of the Lamest’ by ShadowMajin.

It’s about Gohan’s class (before he goes to school) goes to his home to ‘camp’, silliness ensues. Also, Goku is alive for some reason. The second one is when Gohan actually goes to school. (This is Monday Matt – I was wrong these two are still up, see my day to get more on this.) I also found ‘Impasse’ and ‘Finesse’ by Dr. Trunks Briefs, I’ll talk about theses when I read them. (Monday Matt again, these are gone from ff.net.)

I didn’t read any of these, but if some wants to read them, let me know and I can send them to you. If anyone wants the archive, I’ll look up the link I got it from and send it to you. However just the zip files for them are several GB large each and the A archive (the archive for all the stories that start with A [the original stories not the fanfiction] and their crossovers) is 10.86 GB. So if want the archive make sure you have lots of space.

Moving on, I also read a new story for me called ‘Eighteen Years a Prodigy’ by AUS Wild Thing. It’s a Dragon Ball Z story I found while searching for the above stories. It’s about Videl, Erasa, and Sharpener going to a work-study program at Capsule Corp (CC). There they meet Gohan who has worked for CC (and never gone to school) for 2 years and is the head of Science and Inventing. It’s an interesting story, but slow updates based on it being started in 2015 and the latest update (the 5th chapter) being in November 2017. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11300579/1/Eighteen-Years-a-Prodigy.

I actually have one more new fanfiction and a new story that are connected, but because today’s post is long and I’ll be reading a lot more of the story tomorrow I’ll leave it till then. So long!

Sunday

The story I mentioned yesterday is called Soul Land and I discovered it yesterday after reading a fanfiction that has it as a crossover with KHR. The fanfiction is a new one by sakurademonalchemist (so soon after the start of Queen of the Seas? Really?) called ‘Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers.’ It has Fon reborn along with the main character and changing the story. Viper/Mammon is also tagged so I assume he/she (the original story never shows their gender) will be in it too. Only one chapter so couldn’t tell how will go. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13085596/1/Rising-Dragon-Hidden-Hammers. It says it’s crossovered with ManHua/Chinese Comics, but that’s just because there aren’t many fanfictions for Chinese comics (or Korean ones) so they just lump them all together into one category for each country.

Anyway, after reading the chapter I went to find the original story. Soul Land is about Tang San (no, San is his name not a Japanese honorific) who is reincarnated after killing himself for stealing secrets from his clan to help them. At 6 they get a spirit that they can train to get stronger. He gets a Blue Silver Grass (a weak spirit) and a Hammer. He hides the hammer (because none has two spirits) but proves he’s powerful by showing he has lots of spirit power. He goes to an academy to learn how to train his spirit. He has many adventures after that.

I started reading the manga yesterday, but only got to about chapter 21. Today I got to chapter 182. There are currently 212 chapters.

I also read new chapters for The Unseen Hunt, Enough, Queen of the Seas and Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers. There were also several new chapters for stories I haven’t mentioned yet. One of these stories is ‘White’ by Melkor’s Mercy. It’s a Bleach story where Ichigo is eaten by the hollow from the first chapter because Rukia wasn’t in the human world yet. He takes over the hollow and starts changing things in Hueco Mundo. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11021904/1/White.

The next one is ‘Under the Sea’ by ginnyrules27. It’s a Harry Potter and “Little Mermaid” crossover. I’d describe the Little Mermaid, but if you haven’t seen it… Go See It Right Now! I mean really, it’s a classic and everyone should be able to say they’ve seen it, even if they hate it. It has the Dudley accidentally trying to drown Harry when he was young. He is found by the Ariel (who is the same age) and Triton makes him a merman. After a few years, Harry is found by McGonagall and Snape who transform him back and erase Harry’s and Ariel’s memories of each other. They meet each other in his fourth year. This is not a Harry/Ariel story. They end up with their cannon spouses. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8673544/1/Under-the-Sea.

The last new update is for ‘New Developments’ by Illioh. It’s a Dragon Ball Z story where a spy satellite falls down after Gohan goes to school. It has footage from the Cell Games. How will this change things? Find out from this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7629710/1/New-Developments.

Finally, I started rereading a Slytherin Harry fanfic called ‘Becoming Alpha’ by Miz636. It has Harry going to Slytherin and trying to combine the houses. This is a great story and I love reading it and it’s sequels. This one goes through third year. The overall story is complete and I really recommend it. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6389117/1/Becoming-Alpha.

See you tomorrow when this is posted!

Monday

Today I mostly finished rereading Becoming Alpha, playing Pokemon Sun and did work around the house. I read the new chapters for Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers, Mauling Snarks and Queen of the Seas. I also read an older fic by sakurademonalchemist (meaning it’s unfinished) called ‘Heart of the Soul.’ It’s a KHR crossover with “Ghost Hunt.” Ghost Hunt is a light novel/anime about a girl named Mai who becomes a part of a paranormal agency who try to help those who are afflicted with those types of problems. It’s good! In the fanfic Mai is a female Tsuna who was run out of the house after her brother erased their mother’s memories of her. This one is also good! It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12581425/1/Heart-of-the-Soul.

The last story I read was ‘By Your Side is Where I Belong’ by TexasBean. It’s a One Piece and Naruto crossover. It has Zoro taking Naruto and Gaara (both 9ish) with him a few years before he would join Luffy. Thus Naruto and Gaara also join the One Piece crew. This link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290800/1/By-Your-Side-is-Where-I-Belong.

I also learned that Survival of the Lamest and Revenge of the Lamest are still up. The link to SotL is here –https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3637125/1/Survival-of-the-Lamest and the link to RofL is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4125319/1/Return-of-the-Lamest.

Sorry, it’s short. Want to get this up today. See you Thursday!

Can’t Think of a Title

Tuesday

Today, I read the newest Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild. Things are happening and I can’t wait to see what happens! I read the new chapters of Service with a Smile, and Taylor Varga (an omake not a chapter). I also started rereading Naberius Heir that I mentioned in the last post.

The only new (to y’all) story I read was the newest chapter of ‘Celestial Worm’ by ack1308. It (like all of their stories) is a Worm fic with a crossover with a new novel series called Celestial Wars that the author helped its author (Karen Buckridge) develop. I haven’t read it, but I will eventually (most likely) read it. The fic is about an OC from the named book series who comes to the Worm Verse at some point in time (I think before the start of it because it sounds like from Danny [Taylor hasn’t shown up in the fic yet] that Taylor’s still living with him). She has lots of powers (from being celestial I assume) and helps Danny out. It’s only to chapter 3 but it looks interesting. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13037826/1/Celestial-Worm-Worm-AU-crossover.

Since I don’t have much for today, I’ll talk about the “Power Rangers” series. Yeah, I was a huge fan of the original series when I was young. I think I stopped watching sometime during Turbo. I now know that there were many problems with the actors (including low pay and bullying of the gay member of the cast [since I mentioned it, I will say I have nothing against LBGT people. I am not one, but I respect their right to like/love who they want to and I find that the background people and directors almost lead him to suicide to be despicable.]). I’m still glad the actors/actresses brought joy to those of us who watched them.

That being said, if you didn’t know, the Power Rangers series is basically a rip-off of the Japanese series “Super Sentai”. The ranger suits are from a respective Sentai series. Some of the scenes in the suits (mostly with the monsters) and all the Zord scenes are ripped-off directly from their Super Sentai counterpart and dubbed over. In fact, the ‘White’ ranger wasn’t in the Sentai series with the others from the original Power Rangers. This is why they changed Zords around the time he showed up. As far as I know this hasn’t changed into the (how many different Power Ranger series are there now anyway?) present. I know they’re at least still using same suits.

The movies however were made based on anything else (maybe not the second one, don’t know). This explains why they had another ‘origin’ for the Power Ranger ‘ninja’ powers after the first movie in the series (and why the Zords and suits look different).

One last thing, Tommy Oliver has had the most ‘color’ changes of any other character. Green and White in the original series, Red in Zeo and Turbo and Black in Dino Thunder. Also cameos in Wild Force, S.P.D, Super Megaforce and Super Ninja Steel. Did you know that in real life his actor, Jason David Frank, is an undefeated professional mixed martial artist with his own gym and his own martial art called ‘Toso Kune Do”? He’s even in the World Karate Union Hall of Fame. He made quite a life for himself, that’s for sure.

Anyway after that longer than expect rant (that didn’t even talk about what the Power Rangers is even about. Whatever, look it up if you don’t know), there’s nothing else for today. Look down for tomorrow.

Wednesday

There were quite a few new chapters that came out today: Pick Up the Piece and Rebuild (of course), Cambion, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, Heroes Assemble!, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There, A Worthless Quirk, Go Away I’m Watching Porn and an interlude for Mauling Snarks. And those are just the ones that I’ve mentioned before! Also I finished rereading Naberius Heir.

A new chapter for the story called ‘Readin Jaune Ryu-Long:Dragon contractor’ by dirtrevor. It is a reading story for the RWBY story with the same name (without the ‘reading’) by azdrgn (the author I’m betaing for, I got a new chapter for History’s Strongest Disciple Again? I’m gonna edit soon. He doesn’t put it up until later so I take my time reading it first before I edit it to get its flow). I’m sure I’ll talk about that one later, so I’ll leaving talking about it until then. It has RWBY, JNPR, and some of the teachers reading it. The author (who’s in the story) gives them the items and powers they get in the story they’re reading. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12736548/1/Reading-Jaune-Ryu-Long-Dragon-contractor.

The next new chapter was this week’s story update for Seerking called ‘Naruto: The Game of Life’. It’s a Naruto and The Gamer crossover with Naruto getting the Gamer power right before his last year of the academy. This changes many things (also it’s a harem fic, so if you don’t like, don’t read). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973590/1/Naruto-The-Game-of-Life.

The last new chapter was for the story ‘A Crushing Revolution’ by Lunar-L. It’s a Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir story that has Adrian learning that Marinette has a crush on him (from her alter ego no less). This changes his worldview as he starts paying more to her. Where is the link? Why it’s here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12300409/1/A-Crushing-Revelation.

I also started reading the newest story from sakurademonalchemist (again, not finishing any of their other fics) called ‘Queen of the Seas’.   It’s a crossover between Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn and One Piece. Essentially, KHR characters have been reborn (lol) as One Piece characters (including a female Luffy because Tsuna was a female in their past life). Xanxus is Ace, Dino is Sabo and those are the only characters we’ve meet that’ve been reborn (I like saying that don’t I?). There are only two chapters so far, but it looks interesting. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13081098/1/Queen-of-the-Seas.

That’s all for today folks, tomorrow’s only a line away!

Thursday

I realized that I haven’t given y’all an update on my Celebi quest on PoGo in a while. I’m up to 30/40 of grass and psychic types on the last quest. Tomorrow I should be able to finish it with the psychic types being more available starting tomorrow afternoon (which is totally not a way to try and get trainers to get to this quest to make it easier).

In other news, I was sadly wrong and Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild is not done and today was the last update until they finish it. It was a great ending to the (I assume) halfway point, so I guess I can wait. Don’t know when that will be though.   The only new chapters were from GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Queen of the Seas.

Anyway, I started rereading one of sakurademonalchemist’s stories, ‘Mists of a Dawning Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Harry Potter crossover where Harry is female and becomes Viper after the war. It’s about her life before and after the Arcabaleno curse. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12455171/1/Mists-of-a-Dawning-Sky.

I also reread two connected stories by White Angel of Auralon called ‘Screw Them!’ and ‘We’re Screwed’. In Screw Them, Harry leaves Hogwarts after a much worse aftermath to the school learning he’s a parselmouth. His leaving changes many things and leads to him helping the ‘muggle’ government in taking down Voldie and his Death Eaters along with starting a new school to help teach ‘muggleborns’. We’re Screwed is about the Wizarding World finding out about the new school and the shit storm brought on them by the Queen and the British Government. The link to Screw Them! is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10322302/1/Screw-Them. And the Link to We’re Screwed is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10533939/1/We-re-Screwed.

Finally I started rereading a story called ‘Legion’ by NeverTooOld. It’s a Worm fic where Taylor has a much worse experience in the ‘Locker’ and eventually has to be healed extensively by Amy (Panacea). This leads to their friendship and more (Yes, it is a lesbian Skitter/Panacea fic. Don’t like, don’t read). Many things change. Sadly I don’t know if the author is writing anymore (or even with us anymore, I remember reading about some hospital visits [praying for you NeverTooOld] and he hasn’t responded to comments since January). It has 24 chapter and I look for to it (maybe) continuing. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11415619/1/Legion.

That’s it for this post. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!

New Story in a Series!

Friday

Today I didn’t read much because of the previously mentioned interview. It took up most of the morning (mostly getting there and back). I thought it went well, but I I’ll find out when I hear back from them if I got the job.

I finished off The Dark Phoenix of Konoha and read the update of Mauling Snarks. Other than that there was an update for another fic I’ve read ‘The Goblet of Fire’s Trap’ by kopakanuvafan20. It’s a crossover between Harry Potter and Negima! Magister Negi Magi.

Negima! Magister Negi Magi (hereafter just called Negima) is about 9 year old Negi Springfield who just graduated from a magic school in Wales and is given his assignment to prove he can be a Magister (The highest rank of mage). This assignment is to teach English at a Japanese All-Girls Middle school. Oh, and he can’t reveal that he has magic or he’ll be turned into an ermine (if you don’t know what that is, just look it up). When he’s a younger teacher to a class of 31 curious young girls, that’s not gonna be easy.

So it’s been a while since I read this one and I’m not going to lie, the writing style is not that great and the story kinda jumps around. Essentially, Harry learn how to become a phoenix animagus after the Chamber of Secrets, goes to learn how to be a Jedi (for like a few paragraphs) then ends up going to Mahora (the school in Negima) and metamorphs into a girl (Roselyn Evans) and goes to school there until he is pulled to England for the Triwizard Tournament. I’m not that interested in it anymore because of the writing style. You can read it, but as I’ve already warned you, be prepared to not like it much.   The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9196393/1/The-Goblet-of-Fire-s-Trap.

That’s it for today, see you tomorrow!

Saturday

I read and watched a few new stories today so be prepared! The first was a story by White Angel of Auralon called ‘Enough’. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry knows that Dumbledore and his ‘friends’ don’t have his best interests at heart and trains himself to take his NEWTs right after his OWLs. He deviates from the story by going to a summer camp after fourth year (and Dudley and his gang get kissed because Harry’s not there). There are more changes, but this is first major change to what happens. It has 4 chapters and was just started on the 1st of this month. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13052816/1/Enough.

I also read a two-part story by the same author called ‘Bolt Fashion’. In it Harry is more practical and works to gain more money from before he goes to Hogwarts. He decides to start his own Fashion line and does so his fifth year. Voldie and his minions get taken out by almost accident. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11692854/1/Bolt-Fashion.

I reread Petrification Proliferation, read more of Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock and read the new chapters of An Essence of Sliver and Steel, Relic of the Future and How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.

The next fic I reread is called ‘Aura Shinobi’ by guardsmansparky. It’s a Naruto and Pokemon crossover where Arceus saves Naruto when he tries to Summon without a contract at a young age. He sends Naruto back, but sends Lucario to train him and makes a Pokemon summoning contract for him. Sadly this author hasn’t updated any of his stories since 2015, but you never know they might come back. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9635635/1/Aura-Shinobi.

The next is a Sailor Moon story called ‘Unexpected Restart’ by Serena530. It has Serena (Usagi’s name in the english dub) wishing to restart from when she meet Darien after he dies/is captured (she doesn’t know) after the rest of her team doesn’t really care what happened to him. Her Silver Crystal grants her wish and she changes how everything happens to make it better. I like it and I’ve read other stories by this author that are good, so I recommend it. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12668566/1/Unexpected-Restart.

The last new story I read today is called ‘Underneath the Underneath’ by FlamexFullmetal.   It’s a Naruto story with a nice Kyuubi who helps him become stronger. It’s okay, I stopped reading about halfway through for now and I’ll finish it later. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7904046/1/Underneath-the-Underneath.

The last thing I did today was watch the first 3 episodes of the new anime called “Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria” or “The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar” in English. It’s a story about Yuto Suoh who takes a phone photo of himself in front of a ancient mirror that transports him to a different time where he becomes the leader of a warrior society. He wants to go back, if only to see his childhood friend that he can communicate with on his phone if he’s near his version of the mirror. This is his story.

Lastly, Umei no Mei updated Pick up the Pieces and Move On to say that starting Monday and until Friday she will post a chapter to the sequel to it (and the last on in the series) once a day. I’m looking forward to it! It’ll be on the Monday post I assume!

No more for today, see on the flip side (meaning right below this).

Sunday

Today I started rereading Ripples, I got to chapter 50, but that’s not all I read today. I read the new chapters of The Unseen Hunt and Stand Together and Smile. I also read some chapters for stories I haven’t mentioned yet.

The first is called ‘SAO: The Eroge’ by SaintInfernalNeos. It’s a Sword Art Online fic where Kirito gets the power of an eroge protagonist a little before the SAO incident. This means that girls fall in love with him and he can raise their interest points toward him. This causes massive changes this in the SAO universe. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12887197/1/SAO-The-Eroge.

The other update was from ‘Naberius Heir’ by Liam G. This author writes good stories, but none of them have finished. This one is the longest at 24 chapters (the chapters are fairly long though). This one is a Bleach and High School DxD crossover. It has Ichigo having his memories suppressed to save him from the council after the Winter War because his last linage wakes up (hint he’s from devil decent). His Great-Grandfather takes him in and has Rias (pre-story) take care of him. No one from Bleach really knows where he is, though they want to know. See how things turn out. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10023720/1/Naberius-Heir.

Other than that I watched some Youtube videos explaining some of the things that went into Homestuck. Like it being an origin story. I can post the links to them if anyone is actually interested.

Nothing else today, I’m looking forward to the new Pick up the Pieces story!

Monday

Well, first I finished off Ripples. I also read the new chapters for SeerKing’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Bugging Me, Mauling Snarks and I, Panacea. I read the other only Fairy Tail that the real narina has ‘Dreams of Dragons’. It has Acnologia helping Mavis found Fairy Tail (though things still happen with Zeref) and staying on to help it along. Her OC from Ripples is in it, but with different circumstances. It’s pretty good. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12739742/1/Dreams-of-Dragons.

The only other story I read was the one I was looking forward to, ‘Pick up the Pieces and Rebuild’ by Umei no Mei. It’s a good start where Xanxus starts setting things up leave the failing Vongola behind while saving what he can. Really looking forward to the rest of the chapters coming out this week! The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13080563/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Rebuild.

Seeing as I have not read anything else, I’ll talk about “Fruits Basket.” It’s a manga by Natsuki Takaya about a girl named Tohru Honda. She’s a high school student who attempts to live in a tent after her mother dies. She is found out and ends up living with a few members of the Sohma family, only to learn that they and several other of their family members are cursed (it’s a reoccurring one in the family) to turn into the animals of the Zodiac and the cat. This happens when they are weak or a member of the opposite sex hugs them. Follow her as she meets all of them and tries to help them while learning about herself and even falling in love.

They made an anime for it and while it starts off okay; they just kind of have a tacked on ending for it. I would love to have a reboot of it (like Fullmetal Alchemist), I don’t think it will happen. I hope you look it up!

Thanks for reading and I’ll post again on Thursday!

On the Correct Day!

Saturday

This should be on the correct day (Monday). Today I mostly read fanfictions I’ve already mentioned on here: Ichigo Awakens, Child of the Storm, and select chapters of Soul Chess. That doesn’t mean, I didn’t read or watch anything else. I read a new chapter for the fanfiction ‘An Essence of Silver and Steel” by James D. Fawkes. It’s a crossover fic between Worm and a story from TypeMoon “Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya” (lets shorten it to Prisma). Prisma is an in alternate universe to the Fate/Stay Night universe and has one the characters from that one (Illya, a homunculous) getting an alive magic stick named ‘Ruby’. She and others, including someone who has another magic stick named ‘Sapphire’, have to fine ‘Class Cards’ in order to save the tower. Things devolve from there. Oh, did I mention that the magic sticks have a warped personality from their creator, a Dead Apostle (TypeMoon’s vampires) named Zelretch who is the ultimate troll. Still it’s fun (think of it as a nicer Puella Magi Madoka Magica, if you understand the reference).

Basically in An Essence of Silver and Steel, Zelretch (who can travel and pull energy from parallel worlds) finds that the ‘Worm’ world does not really have magic anymore and sends another magic stick to find out why. It finds it’s way to becoming Taylor’s power. Things go right and wrong.   It’s one of the fics that shows that, yeah, Worm is a dark hero story, so things have to go wrong. I would recommend it. The link to the fanfiction is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12515214/1/An-Essence-of-Silver-and-Steel.

The other main thing I did was watch a few episodes of the Amazon Prime series, “Jack Ryan.” I haven’t read the books or watched any of the movie’s, but this is a really good series. Jack Ryan is a former Marine who is now a CIA analyst who sees a threat before anyone else and convinces his new boss to go after this guy. Things go wrong and now they’re trying to find him and stop him, while Jack is learning the experience of going out into the field. I recognized the actor for Jack Ryan from The Office (Though I haven’t seen much of it, mostly funny compilations on YouTube) and found I like Jack Ryan more than I thought I would.

That’s all for today, Ta Ta for Now!

Sunday

Today was a mostly focused on Ichigo Awakens, but I did read a few other things. The first one is a fic I started rereading, ‘A Protector’s Pride’ by NeoRyu777. It’s a Bleach fic that has Ichigo dealing with his inner Hollow before he meets the Vizards. Instead of one time beat down, they decide to do it every two weeks and whoever wins is in charge until the next time. Has a more forward thinking Ichigo. The link to the fanfiction is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5002293/1/A-Protector-s-Pride.

Then there was a fanfiction I read for the first time, ‘Unto the Breach’ by Backslash Echo. It’s a Naruto fic that’s 11 chapters and been around since 2015, but it was updated in August of this year, so maybe still good. It has Naruto being sent accidentally back in time in the fight against Tobi while holding the Tailed Beasts. All the jinchuuriki’s have their memories back, and maybe some others too. See how things change. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973514/1/Unto-The-Breach.

I also dabbled in a fic (meaning I started reading, but will come back later and see if I want to read) that is a crossover between Fate/Stay Night and Sword Art Online called ‘Fate Revelation Online’ by daniel-gudman. Sword Art Online is a anime/light novel about a gamer ‘Kirito’ who along with thousands of others is trapped in a VR (Virtual Reality) MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) that the title is named after until they can clear it. The main catch, if you die in the game, you die in reality. The helmet that allows to connect to the game will fry the player if taken off or if it losses power. Watch as Kirito, Asuna and their friends try to beat the game, for the first half of the first season. After that Asuna gets kind of sidelined and while it comes back to her, she’s only really important in that she’s with Kirito. I like the series, but know that some people don’t. Watch/read it if you want.

Fate Revelation Online has Shiro and Illya joining the game (which is different because the creator is also a magus). It didn’t catch my fancy at this time, but will come back and see later. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9740933/1/Fate-Revelation-Online.

I got a new chapter for a still short story called ‘Roofie” by Lunar-L. It’s a Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir fic that has an adult Marinette being roofied at a fashion party and being saved by Adrian. Her drugged state has her revealing that she likes him. It’s only on the fourth chapter and is finally the morning after (nothing happens, he just takes her home) and they’re both thinking about last night and what will happen from now on. This author also has a few other stories from the same series, mostly MariChat ones. The link to the author is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1727757/Lunar-L. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12610423/1/Roofie.

That was today, see you on the flip side.

Monday

I will post today, and man was today a large one for new fics. I caught up to where I hadn’t read of Ichigo Awakens and took a break from it for today. I read a new chapter of Mauling Snarks as it is Monday. Before I go into the fics I haven’t read before, I started rereading a RWBY fic called ‘Remnant’s Reclaimer’ by Hysterical Clerical Hijinks. It has an a little over 7 year’s older RWBY running so fast with her Semblance (along with an explosion) to accidentally travel back in time to her first year of Beacon (in a massively AU storyline that has Cinder as the main big bad). She then decides to stop Cinder’s plans (She didn’t merge with her younger self). It has lesbian couples in it, so if you don’t like, don’t read. The main sad thing is that it hasn’t been updated since 2016.  The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10813469/1/Remnant-s-Reclaimer.

The same author – Quatermass, wrote all the rest of the fanfictions I read today. The first one I read was called ‘Is Your Great-Aunt and AI!?’ and is a Harry Potter and Portal crossover. Portal is a set of two games about an insane AI, GLaDOS, who takes over a research facility after her human mind is uploaded and she goes insane. You play the mute character Chell, who must use a Portal Gun to solve challenges and escape. In this fic, Harry is sent to live with his great-aunt before she becomes GLaDOS and helps her stay (relatively) sane. She discovers his magic (which she calls ‘Will-based Tranmogrification Force’ or WFT) and he eventually goes to Hogwarts. However he has a more scientifically minded outlook, so things are interesting. Especially when the Morgan Freeman (from Half-Life) characterization from Freeman’s Mind (a YouTube video set on the channel Accursed Farms – the link to the channel is – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ6KZTTnkE-s2XFJJmoTAkw). I watched a few episodes and will watch more later, but my favorite line so far (which is also in the fic) is “I am Captain Gordon Freeman of the Intergalactic House of Pancakes ordering you to open”. The link to the author is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/6716408/Quatermass.  The link to the fic is -https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11567521/1/Is-Your-Great-Aunt-an-AI. It also has an incomplete (for now) second year sequel called, ‘Just How Can a Computer Do Magic?!’ that can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12402919/1/Just-How-Can-a-Computer-Do-Magic.

The next one is called ‘Ex Umbra in Solem’ (which is Latin for ‘From the Shadows into the Light’) and is a Harry Potter and Fate/Zero crossover. Fate/Zero is the prequel to Fate/Stay Night and tells the story of the Fourth Grail War (Fate/Stay Night is the Fifth Grail War). The fic has Harry being thrown through the veil of death after things go wrong in the final battle and everyone he cares for dies. Umbridge (Umbitch) takes over the ministry and after trying to kill him in other ways (he’s the Master of Death) they kill him with the veil. He doesn’t die and ends up in a summoning circle along with Saber (Athuria Pendragon). He’s not a servant. Watch how his actions change the war. It is incomplete, but still being worked on. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12149998/1/Ex-Umbra-in-Solem.

(A quick interlude, I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I also read the fic by Quatermass called ‘HoneyMoon’. It’s their only Harry/Ginny story and has them honeymooning on the Moon in this cool one-shot. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11790040/1/HoneyMoon)

The one after that is ‘Pulvis et Umbra Sumus’ (which is Latin for ‘We are Dust and Shadow’) and is a Harry Potter and RWBY crossover. It has Harry being the son of Qrow and Gretchen Rainart (who was transported to the HP universe and died in childbirth after being tortured). Qrow and Raven go and get him at the end of third year. Read it if you want to learn more. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12856999/1/Pulvis-et-Umbra-Sumus.

I’ll leave the other’s I read to tomorrow as this is already over 1500 words. I’ll post again on Thursday!

Sorry for the Day Wait

Sorry everyone, I went to sleep early yesterday and it wasn’t until today that I remembered I need to post.  I figured I’d just wait and put today’s post in it too.  On to the posts (now it’s very early Saturday, go figure)

Tuesday

I started today by reading a few more chapters in Becoming a Man Among Men.  Then I reread a Pokemon one-shot and the some chapters from the fanfiction it’s a sort of prequel to – ‘I Swear It’ and ‘The Master Challenge: Intro and Kanto Arcs’ both by NoSignalBlueScreen.  I Swear It is a Ash/Misty story (They don’t get together but it deals more with them starting to acknowledge their feelings) that happens during the solo training trip mentioned in The Master Challenge.  The Master Challenge is set after Kalos (though the author started writing at the beginning of Kalos) and Ash decides he needs to go on a solo training trip with his Pokemon to get stronger.  A year later, the Master Challenge is announced and all of Ash’s friends/traveling companions & rivals show up to take it.  It involves going through all of the regions to find something in each one, but wait, what is Team Rocket doing!?  And what’s this about the gang’s parents? The author splits each of the regions into a separate fic.  I like this author and all of his stories, there are more one-shots dealing with other characters and their backstories plus several longer fics I’ll mention later.  NoSignalBlueScreen’s profile is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5500013/NoSignalBlueScreen.  I Swear It’ link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10091012/1/I-Swear-It and The Master Challenge: Intro and Kanto Arcs’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10077502/1/The-Master-Challenge-Intro-and-Kanto-Arcs.

I also got a few new chapters today, the first is a Naruto story that happens after the “Finding Tsunade” arc called ‘The Unexpected Lord of Foxes’ by Solvdrage.  Solvdrage is a fellow Naruto/Hinata shipper and has many stories with that paring.  This one has the Hyuuga Elders deposing Hinata’s dad and planning to punish Hinata and Negi.  Hinata gets to express her feelings to Naruto and he decides to help her and the clan out, with some (as mentioned in the title) unexpected help.  I read the new chapter and started to reread the story (it’s only 12 chapters).  The link to Solvdrage’s profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1094449/Solvdrage and the link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7032511/1/The-Unexpected-Lord-of-Foxes.  The second new chapter I got was from a story I mentioned last post – ‘Skittering Campione’.

The last story I read was a Naruto and Bleach crossover named, ‘Kitsune of Las Noches’ by brown phantom.  It has Gin and Kaname saving Naruto from a mob when he was young and training him along with Aizen and the Espada (This happens a while before the start of Bleach).  He goes back to Konoha to become a Genin, see how his training and outlook change the Naruto universe.  It’s a great fic from a great author.  He has written almost 50 stories (Most of them Naruto) and their all good (even if there are more than a few unfinished).   The link to brown phantom’s profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1634435/brown-phantom and the link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10726613/1/Kitsune-of-Las-Noches.

Other than some more time on Fate/Grand Order and KHUx, that’s all for today.

Wendesday

I didn’t read much today, but I did start rereading another Code Geass fanfiction ‘Code Geass: The Rise of the Black Prince’ by nanoman79.  It’s an interesting story with the starting point that Lelouch & Nunnaly’s mother didn’t die and what would happen if they finished growing up in Britannia.  It has 107 chapter and a sequel with some chapters, but the author hasn’t written anything since 2016.  Not to say they don’t have good stories, but it always annoys me when people don’t finish their fics or at least give a good reason why they stop.  The link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6151698/1/Code-Geass-The-Rise-of-the-Black-Prince.

Other than that, I got some new chapters.  The first one is a Naruto & Harry Potter crossover called ‘A Ninja Summoned’ by Baleygr.  It has Harry being transported to the Naruto verse when he was young (which runs 2 times faster than the Harry Potter verse), becoming a ninja, going through the Naruto timeline before the main part of the fanfiction and marrying a female Naruto.  After all this in the prologue, an adult Harry is summoned by the Goblet of Fire from in front of his wife to participate in the Tri-wizard Tournament.  Follow Harry and the team that comes from Konoha in their adventures in the Potter verse!  It’s on it’s fifth chapter and if good.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12584637/1/A-Ninja-Summoned.

The next new chapter is the next story by Seerking – ‘Worm – Justice for All’.  It’s a crossover between Worm and the Japanese light novel series “Infinite Dendrogram”.  Infinite Dendrogram is about a young man who starts a VR game that gives each player an Embryo that evolves as the player grows.  The main character gets a rare type that looks human a Type-Maiden.  This fanfic has Taylor getting a Type-Maiden Embryo.  The first arc of the story was already posted on his plot bunny story – Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies That Won’t Stop Bugging Me, but he’s edited it and is posting the chapters in his line up (it’s only on the second now).  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12930247/1/Worm-Justice-For-All.

The last one is from a series I haven’t mentioned yet, the supposed rival of Pokemon, Digimon.  Digimon is a show with multiple series with different ‘digidestined’ who partner up with a digimon to save the human and digital world.  They’re not all in the same universe.  It’s called ‘Crossing Boundaries, Second Edition’ by Yua-hime.  The author is remaking their older fic.  It deals with Kuroku and Clockmon gathering the digi-destined  from the other plots for the ending of Fusion.  It mostly focuses on Daisuke, how he is treated and others think of him.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13049841/1/Crossing-Boundaries-Second-Edition.

The last thing for today was that I was reminded I saw Mission Impossible: Fallout this weekend.  I liked it because it tied all the other movies together.  The bad guy was way to easy to spot though and the plot was fairly standard.  To sortof quote Smosh Games’ Honest Trailer, ‘Running, dangling, then more running’.  If you haven’t seen Honest Trailers: go to YouTube and search for Honest Trailers, they’re really funny.  The link to Smosh Games’ channel is –  https://www.youtube.com/user/SmoshGames.

That’s it for today – see you on the next post – right now.

Thursday

So as I mentioned at the top, I’m writing this on Friday (sorry again).  I remember yesterday fairly well, so on to it.

Yesterday was mostly filled with Code Geass: The Rise of the Black Prince and finishing The Unexpected Lord of Foxes, but I did get two new chapters.  The first one I’ll mention was ‘The Lady of the Flies’ by InsanityIncarnate90 and is a Worm and High School DxD.  At the end of Worm, Taylor is dropped into the DxD verse and is reincarnated into a devil by a young Rias Gremory.  See how Taylor changes things.  The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12586479/1/The-Lady-of-the-Flies.

The second one is a fic called ‘Out of Time’ by Saint Danielle.  It is a My Hero Academia fanfiction.  For those who don’t know it, it deals with a senior middle school student named Izuku who is powerless in a world where those having no having powers are the minority.  He studies heroes and wants to be one, but is looked down on for it.  He impresses his hero, All Might, who passes his ‘Quirk’ (what powers are called) on to him (the only one that can be passed on).  Watch Izuku take on the name, Deku, and study to become a great hero with others, while dealing with supervillains.  In Out of Time, Izuku is one of the first heroes and on his final battle, he disappears.  He reappears many years later, during the original stories time, and has to figure out how to adapt while figuring out who the bad guys really are.  It’s only three chapters, but it’s good.  The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12942482/1/Out-of-Time.

That’s it for yesterday, no to today.

Friday

Once again not much, mostly Code Geass: The Rise of the Black Prince, I’m on chapter 61.  I got new chapter for previously mentioned fics: Taylor Varga, Mauling Snarks and Elemental Sky.  I also started a completely new fanfic, ‘Child of the Storm’ by Nimbus Llewelyn.  It’s a crossover between Harry Potter and The Avengers (Marvel verse).  It happens in Year 3 (now in 2013) of HP and in 2013 Marvel movie verse (but Loki is good now).  Thor was James Potter with his memories erased, but was killed before a merging could be done.  His memories were blocked because he went mad and is only reminded of them when Harry mentally calls for help as he’s falling from his broom in the match with Dementors.  Loki reminds Thor and the story happens.  Read for more at – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8897431/1/Child-of-the-Storm.  I’m only a few chapters in, but it’s good.

I also started rereading a Bleach fic called ‘Ichigo Awakens’ by Teloch.  It has Ichigo saving his mother (Though she’s now in a coma) when he is young and starts training to take on Aizen and Ywatch.  It’s a really good fic.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11899396/1/Ichigo-Awakens.

That’s it for today, though it just turned 12 so it’s now Saturday. Whatever, I WILL post on Monday.  See you then!

A Diverse Weekend

Friday –

Today was an interesting day as I went through many fanfiction to find one that would keep my attention.  I’ve had this problem before, either I have to find something else to do or I find a fanfiction that can keep my attention.  This one lead me through several including several whose original stories I haven’t mentioned here yet.  I finished reading Heroes Assemble! and then moved onto ‘Skittering Campione’ by Greatazuredragon.  It’s a crossover between Worm (Skitter is Taylor’s first cape name) and a series called Campione!.   It was a light novel then became an anime that only has one season so far.  The main character (Godo Kusanagi) is a normal high school student until on trip he finds himself in a fight between two gods who have become ‘Heretic’ (meaning they rebel against being wherever they normally are and cause destruction to the world).  Through a set of unlikely circumstances (Or the most obvious circumstances if you look at how often that happens in stories), Godo defeats one of the Gods with the help of a ‘witch’ and becomes a Campione or God Slayer.  This means he gets power from the God(s) he defeats.  Look it up, it’s good.

Anywho, in the fanfiction at the end of Worm, Taylor is transported to Campione! universe and is transformed in a campione because of her defeat of the big bad of her universe.  Watch as her actions change the Campione! universe for the good, funny and weird.  It’s only 14 chapters so far and the link the fanfiction is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12051295/1/Skittering-Campione.

I went through a few one shots after that and only one was interesting, but it was an omake of a conversation in another fanfiction that would only take longer to go through, so I’ll talk about the omake when I read that fanfiction.  The next one I actually read was ‘A Growing Affection’ by Xavon Wrentaile.  It is a Naruto fanfiction.  Like Harry Potter is the top of the Book section of FF.net in number of stories, so is Naruto the top of the Anime section.  I’m actually surprised it too me this long to get to a Naruto story.  For those of you who don’t know, Naruto is about a young boy who wants to became a ninja and the leader of his village, the Hokage.  The only thing wrong with that is that most of the village hates him because he has a great monster (The Kyuubi) sealed in his gut through no fault of his own.  Watch or read as this boy goes through hard work, teachers who barely teach him anything, getting hit by teammates, betrayal, hate, anger and many other things to save the world and gain the love and affection of the village that hated him (Yeah like KHR, I have some issues with the way the main character is treated.  I mean his godfather doesn’t even come in until after the first few arcs and it’s never even mentioned that he’s his godfather until later when we find out who his parents were in the sequel story set three years after the original story ends.)  There’s also now a story about the new generation out too, Boruto.

Moving on the fanfiction is set in the sequel story Naruto Shippuuden and follows an alternate storyline and focuses on Naruto getting together with Hinata (my favorite pairing that’s also canon) and dealing with the issues around him.  It’s good and is finished with 170 chapters.  The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3916565/1/A-Growing-Affection.  I also read a new chapter of Mauling Snarks (it comes out every Friday and Monday).

I started another new story with a new original story, but since this one is already fairly long, I’ll talk about it tomorrow.  Which you’ll be able to see right away ^_^

Saturday

So I’ll start off the story I mentioned in yesterday’s part, ‘Soul Chess’ by draconichero21.  This a one of favorites and it is a crossover between Code Geass and Bleach.  Bleach, for those who don’t know, is like Naruto as being one of most popular mangas/animes of the past generation (as the original generation of Naruto is finished anyway).  It’s about Ichigo Kurosaki a high school student who can see ghosts.  He has a run in with a Hollow (Monster spirits who want to eat you) and a Shinigami (‘Good’ spirits who have the power to purify Hollows and send ghosts to the afterlife) named Rukia Kuchiki.  He ends up becoming a Shinigami and gets involved in (Wouldn’t you know it) a plot to save the world (because the afterlife is crap and nobles who don’t care about people run it).  Other than my personal issues with the governing system of the afterlife (Soul Society), this is a good story.  Though it gets convoluted in the last arc.

In the fanfiction, Lelouch from Geass ends up in the Soul Society long before even the flashbacks in Bleach.  Watch as his actions change things, for better or worse.  I wouldn’t recommend this unless you’ve at least watched Code Geass and possibly a bit of Bleach too.  It’s 208 chapters and a teaser for a remake fic with more crossover characters in it to be at sometime in the future.  The link to the fanfiction is –  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6953451/1/Soul-Chess.  I only read a few chapters of it for now along with a few Ashes of the Past chapters.

I also reread the fanfiction ‘Pick up the Pieces and Move On’ by the first author I mentioned, Umei no Mai.  It’s a sequel to the fic ‘Pick up the Pieces and Take Stock’ and they both deal with the after story of KHR through the lens of Xanxus in dealing with a ‘father’ who can’t see how he wronged Xanxus, a to-be leader who doesn’t know anything and doesn’t want the job and all the mental and physical issues he’s got because of his upbringing and the KHR story.  They’re both good stories that are 8 chapters each with a third and final story in the works that Umei no Mai will finish before continuing Black Sky.  The link to Take Stock is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12963516/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Take-Stock and the link to Move On is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13014658/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Move-On.

I read more than 20 chapters of Growing Affection and a new chapter for the story, ‘Stark Imprint’ by Arthur Hansen which is a crossover story between Worm and Ironman.  One of Tony Stark’s suits ends up in the Worm universe and when Taylor finds it (a few years before Worm’s start), it downloads a copy of his brain into hers.  She gets his memories and talents while remaining herself and becomes a non-powered cape in the Worm-verse.  It’s good and the link the 7 chapter story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971451/1/Stark-Imprint.

That’s all I read today, so I’ll see you in a few seconds on Sunday.

Sunday

Today I went to a small birthday dinner for a church friend and learned that her granddchild has written fanfiction and is on FF.net.  I haven’t read either of their stories, but their user name is DesertAnubis.  There is a Dragon Ball Z fic (that’s been abandoned after 35 chapters) and a new Yu-Gi-Oh! fic that has been finished IRL, but is slowly being posted.  The link to their profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2078100/DesertAnubis.

I read some more Soul Chess and Growing Affection, but other than that I just have a story I started rereading and a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned yet.  The story is called ‘Broken Dreams’  by ThunderReborn and is a Bleach story where after the Winter War, things are different and Ichigo gains his enemy’s sword and most powerful tool.  He is trained by them and his own sword while everyone thinks he’s powerless and ignores him.  When he graduates high school he walks away and has several crossovers (starting with High School DxD).  It’s not for everyone and remember the phrase “Don’t like, Don’t read”.  It’s one I follow. Anywho, the link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11877799/1/Broken-Dreams.

The new chapter is from the fanfiction ‘ Mending the Knots’ by azndrgn (the author who I’m editing for on another story).  It’s a RWBY story where Jaune doesn’t get into Beacon and starts a massage business.  It’s fun and still has your favorite characters in it.  The main reason I didn’t read much else is that I got the app Fate/Grand Order (from the same universe as Fate/Stay Night [though without the rated R stuff]).  I got caught up in it, KHUx and PoGo (I finally moved on to the fourth set of the Celebi quests).  See you tomorrow when I actually post all this.

Monday

So as usual for today, I read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks.  I also spent time on Fate/Grand Order and KHUx again.  I also reread two stories by SeerKing that are finished or not currently being worked on.  They are ‘RWBY – Poison Promise’ and ‘RWBY – Flame of Atonement’.  In the first one, Ruby is posioned and it deals with finding who did it and curing her.  The second one deals with the aftermath.  Poison Promise done at 10 chapter and Flame of Atonement is on hiatus at 4 chapters.  The link to Poison Promise is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11733770/1/RWBY-Poison-Promise and the link to Flame of Atonement is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12147659/1/RWBY-Flame-of-Atonement

I read sakurademonalchemist’s newest story (Again not finishing any of their older ones) ‘Elemental Sky’ in which a female Tsuna learn that she is cousins with the Sand Siblings from Naruto (Temari, Kankaro, and Gaara) and goes to visit them (at a time before the chunin exams).  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13036342/1/Elemental-Sky.

I also started rereading the story ‘Becoming a Man Among Men’ by Dragon6.  It is based on the Ranma 1/2 story which is about Ranma, a high school aged martial artist who accidentally falls into a cursed pool that causes him to become an aquatransexual (which means he turns into a girl when hit by cold water and back to a boy when hit by hot water).  He is then forced to agree to marry one of three daughters of his (abusive, thieving, lying, habitually agreeing to marriage contracts for his son for silly things) father’s friend.  Ranma has to deal with multiple fiancees, men who are after said fiancees and people who blame him for what his father did (I swear, I have not seen a story with so many character with daddy issues and some mommy issues).  Becoming a Man Among Men has Ranma reading his father’s journal after becoming an aquatransexual and learns of all of his father’s misdeeds and his planning to marry him to his friend’s daughter.  He then decides to make his own martial arts school and not do anything his father wants.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6492923/1/Becoming-a-Man-Among-Men.
