I Got a Job! (YAY!)

Hey everyone, I finally got a job that isn’t temporary! I start on Monday and it’s a 10 hour work day so I may start posting earlier on Monday cause I start at 6 in the morning. I’ll have less time to read, but that doesn’t mean that I’ll stop posting. So look forward to many more posts my readers. I’ve decided that I’m going to create a fanfiction page where you can look through either the author’s name or originating story to find a certain fanfic. I’ll try and implement it this weekend.

This week was again more Taylor Varga while I continue to work through the web novel of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and finished rereading Demonic Jewels. No new episodes of the Slime anime yet cause that comes out on Monday. The new chapters for this week are: Flames, Reality Bites Worm, Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Hive Daughter, Seerking’s Asylum, Campione of the Raging Tides, A Ninja Summoned, Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Friday) & Omake(Wednesday), The Gamer, Titanfall, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Ashes to Flame, Mending the Knots, Breaking the Guilded Cage, Angels and Demons and Taylor Varga Omake (MCU).

In the fanfiction world, I started reading (but haven’t continued cause it couldn’t fully keep my attention) ‘Forged in Hellfire: Lost Soul Reborn’ by RainthelingeringSentiment. It’s a Naruto and Mortal Kombat crossover. Mortal Kombat is an arcade game turned movie and cartoon/anime? I don’t normally pay attention to it, but the fanfic sounded interesting at first. It has Naruto falling in love with Haku on the Wave mission and sacrificing himself to save her from Kakashi’s attack. This awakens the sleeping portion of his soul that was formerly Scorpion’s (Hasashi Hanzo) and they have to merge to stay alive. The resulting personality is a mix of the two and he has to figure out who he is now. It’s a harem fic. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11624888/1/Forged-in-Hellfire-Lost-Soul-Reborn.

The second one in the same situation as the first is ‘Time Traveling Prince’ by Tactition101. It’s a Naruto and Sailor Moon crossover where Naruto is Chibiusa’s older twin brother who was sent to the allied Konoha to learn. He is sent after her to help her when she goes to the past and does his best to help her. It just didn’t catch my interest that day. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6492083/1/Time-Traveling-Prince.

The only other new stories I read were, of course, more sakurademonalchemist ones! Only four this time though. The first is ‘Lost Name’ and is a crossover between Cardcaptor Sakura and Harry Potter. It has Harry being Eriol from the second series and making his own cards. Clow even gets his own body for a while. Unfortunately, it’s another one of those stories that hasn’t been updated in a long time. But, if you want to read it, the link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10450983/1/Lost-Name.

The second one is ‘Angels Among Us,’ which is a crossover between Supernatural and Ghost Rider. It has an angel that has been captured in Hell being the power behind the Ghost Rider. When Dean is in Hell, he sees the angel and becomes her vessel to break her out of Hell when he gets out. Having her around changes things and mostly for the better. Find out how here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10442197/1/Angels-Among-Us.

Third is ‘Soul and Sword,’ a crossover between Yu Yu Hakusho and Fate/Stay Night. Shiro heard about Genkai from his father before he died, so he goes to her to help him train as a Magus. He ends up in her tournament and ends up getting training from her alongside Yusuke. Shiro unlocks his magic and learns how to be a psychic while helping Yusuke and the gang. Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10232459/1/Soul-and-Sword.

The final on is the one I’d already read, ‘Sky Bunny.’ It’s one of the newer(ish) of their stories and is a crossover between KHR and Yu-Gi-Oh! I’ve mentioned it before, but haven’t talked about it. So, Yu-Gi-Oh! Is an anime based on a card games of the same title. The original series is about Yugi Muto, an aspiring duelist who has an old gold Egyptian puzzle necklace that looks like and upside down pyramid. This necklace has the spirit of an old Egyptian pharaoh who takes over and helps Yugi duel. He soon learns that just because it’s a game, it doesn’t make it any less real.

The story has a Fem. Tsuna becoming Yugi’s rival’s, Seto Kaiba, assistant to get away from her hometown. Seto ends up keeping her as his assistant and even transfers her to his and Yugi’s school (before the series starts). She gets caught up in the madness, but she does her best to help out those around her. Find the story here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12629452/1/Sky-Bunny.

I also watched the first episodes of the anime, “Black Clover.” It’s about a young boy named Asta who wants to become the Magic King to prove a poor orphan can do it. The only problem, he doesn’t have any magic. When everyone else, including his rival Yuno, gets a grimoire and he doesn’t, he’s devastated. However, when he stands up to a magician to save his friend, he gets a grimoire that manifests a sword that cuts through magic. The one issue, it has a five-leaf clover on it. That indicates that it’s related to a demon, the very beings the original Wizard King defeated. What will happen next? I don’t know, I just started watching it, but it’s really interesting anyway.

So! Look forward to the new fanfiction database? (the best description I have for it) next time. See everyone then (alongside the time I get KHIII!) and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

It’s a Week to KH3!

Hey everyone! It’s been an fun weekend.  No polls and I haven’t had time to work on getting the list of fanfic I’ve mentioned up yet, still figuring out how I want to do it.  In PoGo news, I got a shiny Feebas on Saturday’s event but no one on my town’s chat can find this month’s Spinda task.  Anyway, I continued with Taylor Varga and Drifting, along with starting to rereading Demonic Jewels and catching up with Titanfall (Fanfic).  I also watched Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2, so I am completely ready for KH3 a week from now!  This weekend’s new chapters were: The Gamer (Webcomic), Breaking the Guilded Cage, Angels and Demons, Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Taylor Varga Omake (Sat, Sun, Mon), Headstart, Warlock, Price of Blood, The Unseen Hunt, Gun Bunny and Mauling Snarks.  I also learned I need to catch up with Ashes of the Past cause it had the battle the whole fic has been leading up to in a few chapters update (not that it’s finished, just that the original point of having gone back is done).

I actually read a few new stories this weekend, so get ready, cause here they come!  First is ‘Hive Daughter’ by PlateGlassArmour.  It’s a Worm fic with a slight Warhammer 40,000 crossover.  It has Taylor connecting to their Hive mind when she Triggers and learning how they do what they do.  Watch as Taylor becomes a Bio-tinker Master and try to work with the good guys (which is hard because some of them are against her), here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13012317/1/Hive-Daughter.

Next is ‘Teeth and Claws’ by TheShadowSwan.  It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover with a fem. Harry.  She has multiple personalities to deal with different parts of her life and eventually ends up with one called ‘Skull de Mort.’  She is called to the table of greatest because of another personality who was The Greatest Thief, Noir.  She doesn’t trust any of them, but especially Luce, Lal Mitch and Iron Hat.  Find out how she changes things by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12928533/1/Teeth-and-Claws.

Then, there was ‘Marvel’s Maelstrom’ by Pibbinator.  It’s a Naruto and MCU crossover that has Naruto being transported to save him by Sasuke during the battle against Kaguya.  He ends up landing near Kamar-Taj and the Ancient One takes him in and helps him.  He wants to get back to help his friends, but can’t find out how to do it.  He ends up looking for the Space Stone to help him and gets caught up in the MCU’s problems.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12365777/1/Marvel-s-Maelstrom.

On to more sakurademonalchemist, the first is on that is only on AO3, ‘Transcending Time and Space.’  It’s another crossover between Harry Potter and KHR and has fem. Harry being Fran from the future timeline.  She gets her memories back early and leaves after her OWLS to join the Varia.  She joins as a maid to easily get in, but what’s up with her and Prince the Ripper?  Find out here – https://archiveofourown.org/works/14302704/chapters/32997702.

After that is ‘An Angel and a Trickster,’ which is a Supernatural and Harry Potter crossover.  In it, fem. Harry is depressed for her fifth year when Gred and Forge summon Loki to the castle to take care of Umbridge.  Loki takes a liking to her and decides to make a deal that if he can make her happy again, she’ll go out with him.  Can he win the bet or will things come crumbling down.  Find out at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10142032/1/An-Angel-and-a-Trickster.

Third is ‘Shattered Mask’ a crossover between Naruto and MCU.  When the council tries to screw her over after the War, Fem Naruto takes the other Bijuu and vessels out of the Elemental Countries.  They scatter, but she ends up on Asgard as a bar maid.  There she meets Thor, Loki and friends.  The only one she can tolerate is Loki and she decides to help him out.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10709418/1/Shattered-Mask.

Fourth is ‘Crimson Typhoon,’ which is a One Piece and Naruto.  Kushina’s dad is Shanks and he picks up Fem. Naruto after his parents are killed.  She joins him on her crew and ends up working on her own. Oh, and something happened causing each nation to be it’s own island.  All of that and more, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10574085/1/Crimson-Typhoon.

Fifth is ‘Hidden Song,’ another Harry Potter and Supernatural crossover.  This time though, Harry is Bobby (more aged for reasons).  Watch as he helps the Winchesters out while dealing with England come for him. And this time England is not coming home! (sorry, when I typed the sentence before that it came to me and I couldn’t stop myself.  For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, look up Football England Coming Home Song and you’ll find it.)  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10496217/1/Hidden-Song.

Sixth (and last that I’ve read currently of their fics) is ‘Kitsune Otome,’ which is a Mai HIME (Mai OTOME) crossover.  In the battle between Sasuke and Fem. Naruto when the former is defecting, a portal is accidentally opened and she ends up in the world of Mai OTOME.  She trains to become an Otome until she can go home.  But will things be the same when she does?   Find out here –  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10368153/1/Kitsune-Otome.

Moving On, I also watched “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.”  The anime is only 16 episodes long now, but the web novel (turned light novel) is finished.  After watching all the episodes, I started reading the web novel.  Anyway, it’s about an almost 40 salary worker who saves his junior from being stabbed and gets killed.  He ends up reincarnated in another world as a slime, but a powerful one.  I haven’t finished it yet (by a long shot), but it’s interesting.

That’s everything for the weekend, but I’m going to see the new Dragon Ball Super movie tomorrow!  See you readers on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

 

Weekend of a Few Readers – 2019 Version

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Changed the Archive and Made a Poll (Please Vote!)

Hey everyone! It’s been a week and no one has liked (or really read) any or the posts since I started this style of writing. Therefore, I made a poll that I’ll put a link to at the beginning of the post for the next week while I continue with this style. After those two weeks, I’ll look at the result and use the winning style from now on. Please take some time to vote here – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

I’ve also redone the archive section like I mentioned last time. The only direct chapter links in the Archive will be from the current month. When we get to February, I’ll move the January post links to a January page and put a link to it in Archive. When 2019 ends (and I hopefully will still be posting and have more people reading my posts), I’ll do what I did with my 2018 posts and move the month links to a new 2019 page that will be linked on the main Archive page.

These past few days I’ve read some more of Outfoxed and Lord Over the Night Sky and started rereading Prime Directive: Hero, How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk and Taylor Varga. The new chapters were from: Tsunami, Service with a Smile, Reality Bites Worm, My Hero Academia (manga chapter), It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble!, Taylor Varga and Death March (the online story).

Since I liked the fanfic Archer from last post, I decided to look into other stories by the author Fencer22. The first one that caught my eye was ‘Flames’ which is a Worm and KHR crossover. The only real crossover is that Taylor triggers with Dying Will flames, but not Sky. Instead of the normal Taylor’s outlook of becoming a Hero, this Taylor is more practical and wants money to prepare for the imminent end of the world (and explains why she thinks so). It’s interesting, though it only has 13 chapters. If you would like to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13042230/1/Flames.

The other one I found interesting was ‘Grind,’ which is a Worm and multiple crossover fic. It has Taylor triggering with the power to enter any type of story (Book, DVD or game) and gain the power(s) of whatever characters she or anyone she brings along play as. The only issue, they have to go through the whole story. For example, when she goes into the first book, she’s stuck ‘reading’ the book and doing whatever the main character does for four hours until the end of it, basically outing herself. It’s a good story, sadly the author decided they could not write it anymore and just posted a spattering of scenes leading up to an ‘ending’ for the last chapter. So, if you feel you can read it and not be disappointed with that ending, feel free to read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11375309/1/Grind.

Next, sakurademonalchemist posted a new story called, ‘Breaking the Gilded Cage.’ It’s a KHR and Natsume’s Book of Friends crossover, with a female Tsuna turning back time to her younger self to get away from the Vongola and instead taking the route of Takashi from Natsume’s Book of Friends. It’s only two chapters long so far, but it’s not bad. Kinda hard to make a decision about how a story will be in two chapters. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13166072/1/Breaking-the-Gilded-Cage.

Following that I found the fic ‘Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R-eset’ by Starlight’s Poet. It’s a Lelouch of the Rebellion story with side stories like Code Geass: Akito of the Exiled and game storylines included. It starts off with Lelouch getting the chance to relive his rebellion from the start and him taking it. He’s more powerful this time and knows what happened to his mother, so he can focus on taking down Britannia. The story is interesting and I haven’t finished it yet up to the current chapter yet, so I hope it continues to be so. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10704227/1/Code-Geass-Lelouch-of-the-Rebellion-R-eset.

Finally, I started rereading ‘Neo Yondaime Hokage’ by Psycho G. The story is a Naruto one where Minato not only seals the Kyuubi into Naruto; he also seals himself. Naruto grows up as Tsunade’s ‘son’ and soon finds multiple women after him. But, just because he is stronger doesn’t mean he’ll bulldoze through fights. He still will have issues, just different ones than the normal ones. He even accidentally visits the ‘canon’ universe and changes things for the better! It hasn’t been updated since 2015, but hopefully it will eventually be updated. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3201446/1/Neo-Yondaime-Hokage.

Going back to more of what I watched during my ‘Christmas break from blogging’ (I’ll be doing one or two movies/shows for the next few posts because I watched a lot during that time period) I watched “The Mummy Returns” from the Mummy series. I’ve seen it and the rest of the series before, but I always enjoy rewatching them. Watching Rick and Evelyn O’Conner battle it out against Imhotep while trying to save their son is great. I was sad Evelyn didn’t return for the third movie, but it was good anyway. Not sure which one is my favorite, though the third one was probably my least favorite. I would recommend any of them though if you haven’t watched them yet!

To finish it off, I watched “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” I would have liked it better if I had read the story before hand, but it was what was decided to watch at that time. I found it interesting, even if I missed the first part. I’ll probably read the books sometime, but I think I’ll like the books better because it looks like they just crammed the second book at least into the last 30 mins of the movie.

Anyway, that’s the end of the post today! Look forward to the post on Monday and don’t forget to vote! Here’s the link again, just in case – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

It’s a Death March Weekend!

Friday

Today (and most of this weekend, at least) I’ll be rereading and then catching up with the web novel I mentioned last post, Death March. I got the 43rd part of the 10th act before I started writing this post. The new chapters today are – Ashes to Flame, Tsunami, and Mauling Snarks.

There was also a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, ‘Devil Ninja’ by The Engulfing Silence. It’s a crossover between Naruto and High School DxD, where Naruto ends up in the DxD world with no chakra. He ends up at Kuoh Academy a month before the start of DxD, how will his being there change things? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9775478/1/Devil-Ninja.

R Rated Content

Yeah, so this one does have sex and sexual situations in it. Just in case anyone doesn’t want to read that stuff (or is underage).

R Rated Content

The extra story I’ll talk about today is one I mentioned earlier, “The Prince of Tennis” (it was when I was talking about the abundance (and variety) of sports manga/anime. The Prince of Tennis is a story by Takashi Konomi about a young tennis prodigy named Ryoma Echizen who just returned from America with his family. He ends up at Seishun Academy (it’s a middle school) and joins its strong tennis team. After beating some of his seniors, he ends up on the team’s regulars. They work together to try and get to and win the National Middle School Tennis Championship. However Ryoma also wants to get better to win against his Dad (who’s much better than him). It’s an older series, but it’s still popular. The original series ran for 42 manga volumes and had 178 episodes. It has a sequel ongoing called “New Prince of Tennis” which is about after the Nationals and onto the Worlds. I recommend this one very much.

Nothing more today, see everyone tomorrow!

Saturday

Once again, I read more Death March and got to near the middle of the 13th act at part 20. The new chapters for today were Reincarnation Roulette, Relic of the Future and Heroes Assemble! There was really nothing else today, so onto my replacement story, next paragraph!

I’ll go more in-depth for another story I mentioned about when I talked about sports, “Eyeshield 21” by Riichiro Inagaki. It’s about Sena Kobayakawa, a high school freshman at Deimon High who is a frequent gopher for bullies. His childhood friend, Mamori, protects him, but he finds it embarrassing. The only thing he has going for him is his speed. The devil captain and quarterback of the ‘American Football’ club (yeah, so looked this up and it turns out that this and football of the rest of the world have the same base sport that split when football decided to not use hands. Soccer was a slang term for “Association Football” (no hands) in Europe, but is now only used in North America. Don’t know why “Rugby Football” decided to drop ‘Rugby’, but now there are two footballs. Who knew), Hiruma sees him and tricks him into becoming the third member of the team (along with Kurita, a lineman) as the running back (they borrow members from other teams until they eventually get a full roster). To hide his identity, Sena pretends to be the manager and during the games wears a tinted Eyeshield and has the number 21 (thus Eyeshield 21). Sena gains confidence and grows as they strive to get to the Christmas Bowl. This is another oldie, but goodie. It has 37 manga volumes and 145 anime episodes.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I Love Ya, Tomorrow. You’re Only a Day Away!

Sunday

I only got to the end of part 13 of Death March today, but that’s because I reread (and caught up on) Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope that had a new chapter today. The other new chapters were from An Unseen Hunt and an omake for Taylor Varga. Once more I read nothing else new, so its time for the talk about another series!

This time is “Cross Game” a baseball series by Mitsuru Adachi, who has written several other baseball and sport series. Cross Game is about Ko Kitamura, who is a great pitcher. His childhood friend, Wakuba Tsukishima (the second daughter in the family), treats him as her boyfriend and wants him and her sister Aoba (the third daughter) to get along. Her last dream she relays to them before she dies in an accident while they’re in elementary school is for them (Ko and Aoba) to go to Koshien (the high school baseball championship) together. He eventually joins the baseball team in high school and she becomes the manager because she can’t join the team (even though she hates him, mostly). They overcome the team’s difficulties and work toward their goal of making that dream come true. It’s a sweet story, though it has a sad beginning. It has 17 volume of manga and 50 anime episodes (I really love the opening and closing themes!). I very much hope you read/watch this one.

See everyone when I post tomorrow! (also did anyone else see the new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 with part of the new opening theme! It looks and sounds great, though I’m sad we won’t be able to hear the full version unless we pre-order/get the album and even then not until it comes out on Jan 18 a week before the game comes out).

Monday

So today I got to part 20 of act 15 (the middle of it) of Death March. There are only 16 acts currently, but it (again currently) has 78 parts and an intermission. I may finish tomorrow, but I should be finished on Wednesday at the latest. The new chapters today are Mauling Snarks and How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.

There was a new chapter for a story from ack1308 called, ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ It’s a Worm fic where Danny and his wife Annette were a hitman team called Dark. They stopped after Taylor was born, but when Taylor is put in the locker and her favored dog (only in this fic) is stolen, he dons his former identity to get back the dog and get revenge for his daughter. It only had 3 chapters (and is infrequently updated), but it has an interesting beginning. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11811377/1/Are-You-Afraid-of-the-Dark.

For today’s new series, I’ll take a break from the sports and Japanese stories. “The Hardy Boys” by several people under the pen name Franklin W. Dixon is an older children’s mystery series about brothers Frank and Joe Hardy. They’re teenagers who are amateur detectives, following after their father who is also one. They usually assist their father or stumble onto something with his cases. The original series was started in 1927, but were revised in 1959 to be less racist and simpler. It ran until 2005, when “Undercover Brothers” started. That ran until 2012 and “The Hardy Boys Adventures” started in 2013. The original series has 190 books (though some only consider the first 58 to be ‘canon’). It’s a fun series for your kids, I should know I read some when I was young!

See you, my readers, when I post on Thursday!

The Start of Death March (and the first post with no Harry Potter in it 0_0)

Tuesday

Today, I read a few more Ashes of the Past. The new chapters today are Ripples and Reality Bites Worm. I also read more stories from ack1308.

The first one of the two is ‘Wyvern,’ which is a Worm fic where Taylor triggers into a wyvern instead. She can change into it when she’s afraid and change back when she’s comfortable/happy. Glory Girl finds her and she decides to join New Wave. Basically she and Lung change power sets. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11426471/1/Wyvern.

The second one is called ‘I’m HALPING’ another Worm fic. It has an unnamed human-shaped Endbringer (who’s eventually named ‘Zachary’), whose purpose is to protect Taylor Hebert. He lets her out of the locker immediately, but is hounded by the PRT and Protectorate. Watch how he protects her while trying to learn how to joke, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12056068/1/I-m-HALPING.

Next, I read a fic called, ‘The Last Master’ by Woona The Cat. Its an Unlimited Blade Works and Fate Grand Order crossover where Shirou takes the place of the main character in the game (because of Zelretch shenanigans of course). He changes things, but still becomes the last master of Chaldea. It’s only 5 chapters and not finished yet, but has been updated recently.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12588900/1/The-Last-Master

Following I read a Star Wars fic called, ‘I Know: Or, How Ahsoka Tano Saved the Skywalkers’ by Sianshanya. It has Ahsoka finding out that Anakin and Padmé are together and before she leaves tells him to confide in Obi-Wan. This saves Anakin from falling to the Dark Side and leads to a different story. See the changes, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11601649/1/I-Know-Or-How-Ahsoka-Tano-Saved-the-Skywalkers.

I also started something else, but as it’s a long story I’ll just talk about it tomorrow. See you then!

Wednesday

There’s nothing from former stories other than new chapters, so here they are: Lucy Heartfilia and the World of the Gods, Organization 13 and a Half, Mauling Snarks (Omake), It’s in the Cards, Master Potter of Kamar-Taj and Heroes Assemble! I finally finished my Let’s Go Pokedex (except for Melmetal, but that will take a while. Only almost 200 candies so far and I need 400) and caught a shiny Weedle on Let’s Go Pikachu.

The only other thing I read today was – Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku (or Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody). While there are light novels (several versions, if I’ve read correctly), a manga and an anime (1 season), I’m reading the translation of the original web novel (which is still ongoing). I’ve read it before up to where it was at then in the 16th part somewhere (The parts get longer with each progressive one. For example the first one has 10 sections and the tenth one has 51 sections, 7 Intermissions and 13 short stories).

It’s about a Japanese 20 something year old programmer who goes to sleep and wakes up in a fantasy world looking 15. He’s level 1 in the middle of no-where and the only special thing he has is a menu, an all-map identify spell and 3 map clear meteor spells (in all but the original web novel, he’s about to be attacked by lizard people). He activates the meteor spell and becomes over level 300. He then goes through this world meeting people and trying to be a sightseer (he fails and gets into many situations to help people) and find out why he ended up here (I think we know the basics when I got to the current chapter back then, but you find out much later). It’s fun, but I’ll be stuck on this for a while cause I’m only just starting the 6th act (I’ll make sure to write about something else too, so don’t worry). The link to the translated web novel is here – https://www.sousetsuka.com/p/blog-page_11.html.

That’s all for today, I’ll post tomorrow!

Thursday

I read more of Death March (I’ll just call it this) today and got to the 13th section of the 9th part. The only new chapter was for Seerking’s Asylum (he’s on break for the holidays on the normal schedule), but there was a rewrite notice for chapter 5 of Konsō and a poll notice for Broken Dreams. I also went to my town’s festival today about a Christmas drink (there were many variations of it, along with singing and food.

As I only read Death March, I’ll talk about the Accel World light novel series by Reki Kawahara. It’s about a fat student named Arita Haruyuki who lives in a future where people can have chips implanted that can have their brains jacked into the computer. His avatar is very nimble, but that’s the only thing he has going for him (he’s bullied, his two childhood friends are going out and he’s the third wheel). When he meets the beautiful Kuroyukihime, he joins the program Brain Burst and enters the Accelerated World where he uses his skills to help her beat everyone else (and escape his current reality). It’s still being published, but there are 23 novels out now along with a manga, a few anime seasons and a movie.

Nothing more for today, see everyone after the weekend on Monday!

 

There’s more sakurademonalchemist this weekend (and some movies)

Friday

Today I started rereading the Pick Up the Piece series and got part way through the second one Move On. There were new chapters for – Tsunami, Viridescent, A Smile on Your Face and a Song in Your Heart, Mauling Snarks, Taylor Varga and Stand Together and Smile. I read more new sakurademonalchemist stories also.

The first one is called ‘Moon Sword’ and it is a crossover between Sailor Moon and Fate/Stay Night. It has Usagi and Shirou switching places in the fire (meaning Usagi was there for the fire and had her memories wiped, then Usagi ended up with Kiritsugu and Shirou was adopted into Usagi’s family, who thought she was dead). It also had the Moon and ‘Atlantis’ (where Endymion lived) around the time of Babylon, where Gilgamesh was also interested in Serenity (who only went after Endymion because her mother kept pushing her at him).   When she summons him away from the church, he recognizes her and decides to help her and stay around. Things change drastically. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11608405/1/Moon-Sword.

The second one was ‘Angel Fire’, which is a crossover between the Guild Hunter series and Harry Potter. The Guild Hunter series’ first book is “Angel’s Blood” and it was the other thing I read today. Angel’s Blood is about Elena Deveraux, who is a vampire hunter. It’s not like normal though, vampires are Made (yes, it’s also captiallized in the book) by Angels from people who want to live longer (most of the time). They have to serve the Angel who turns them for a long time before they’re free. When a vampire runs away from that service or starts hunting humans, people like Elena are sent to capture or kill them. Elena is one of the best, that’s why the local Archangel, Raphael, chooses her for a very special assignment, hunting down another Archangel who’s turning to bloodlust. She has to do this, while fighting off her attraction to Raphael.

It’s an interesting series and I only found it because I wanted to read Angel Fire. There’s romance, but no sex scenes. I would recommend it.

Angel Fire is about a female Harry who discovers she’s Angel born when Umbridge pushes her off a tower and her wings reveal themselves. She runs away and ends up in Raphael’s territory. Things happen from there (this happens a bit before the series starts. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11635487/1/Angel-Fire.

Nothing more today, see you tomorrow!

Saturday

Today I read more Pick Up the Piece series and got part way thought the third and last, Rebuild. The new chapters for today were Relic of the Future and Heroes Assemble! I once again read some new sakurademonalchemist stories.

The first was ‘Daughter of Flame’ and it is a Fullmetal Alchemist and Harry Potter crossover. It has female Harry being the daughter of Roy Mustang instead and her going through the Gate to meet him after her fourth year. There she eventually meets the Elric brothers and journeys with them. They follow her to Hogwarts to learn about magic. Oh, did I mention that the Wizarding World thinks she’s a boy? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11569177/1/Daughter-of-Flame.

The second one was ‘Summoner’s Sword’ and it is a Fate/Stay Night and Chrono Crusade crossover. Chrono Crusade (which I haven’t read in a long time) is about Rosette Christopher and her soul-bound demon Chrono, who are members of the Order of Magdalene. They hunt other demons across America while searching for Rosette’s brother, who was taken by another demon. It’s an interesting story and the anime and manga have different endings (I don’t know which one is better because I don’t think I’ve watched the anime).

Summoner’s Sword’s only real crossover with Chrono Crusade is that Shirou is from the Harvenheit clan (Satella Harvenheit is a jewel summoner in Chrono Crusade). His abilities as a Harvenheit can only be revived when Shirou is hypnotized and his other personality changes. Säbel is this other personality’s name. Shirou can still use his normal abilities as himself, but he can now change personalities to change his abilities. This changes many things and Säbel makes things better. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11567979/1/Summoner-s-Sword.

Finally, there was ‘Identity Crisis,’ a crossover between Doctor Who and Harry Potter. It has the Metacrisis Doctor (the one from the end of season 4 of the reboot, the duplicate of The Doctor who’s part human), being left by Rose because he isn’t The Doctor. He then finds a way to a parallel universe and uses a ritual to reincarnate himself so he can find a way to activate his Time Lord abilities. He ends up as Harry Potter. Harry decides to go to a Muggleborn created school and nothing is the same. Find out what happens, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11204327/1/Identity-Crisis.

I also watched the new Robin Hood movie today. It was okay. I’m not really recommending it, but it’s not a horrible movie. They tried to humanize the Sheriff, but it kinda fell flat because he’s working for the people that abused him. I would have liked to maybe have them try to semi-save him (meaning he acted for the good guys in the end). I also felt that one character’s plot twist was a bit too much. I mean there’s spite and then there’s WTF. All in all, probably better off as a one-time Red Box rental.

That closes up today, tomorrow’s only a line away!

Sunday

I finished up the Pick Up the Pieces rereading and I finally made those lists I was talking about so I don’t reintroduce a fanfiction, story, show or movie! The new chapters were from – The Unseen Hunt and Tsunami. There are more new sakurademonalchemist (now SDA to not have to type that name every time) stories as well (I’m working through them backwards).

The first one is ‘Adamantium’ and it is an X-Men and Harry Potter crossover. It has Magneto waking up on the train to Hogwarts as an eleven year old with no idea how he got there. He befriends Harry and eventually finds some more ‘reincarnated’ mutants. It’s interesting, but once again, not finished. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11449634/1/Adamantium.

The next one is called, ‘Befriending Sword.’ It’s a Lyrical Nanoha and Fate/Stay Night crossover where Yunno meets Shirou instead and makes him a magical boy. Nanoha comes in later, but it’s only five chapters and we don’t know much because of that. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11409255/1/Befriending-Sword.

The last of SDA’s stories today is ‘Queens of Cosplay.’ It’s a crossover between Lyrical Nanoha and Sekirei that has Uzume’s ‘Destined One’ being Hayate. She ‘wings’ her a while before the Book of Darkness is activated. The corruption of the Book is found by accident and removed. Find out what happens in these four chapters, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11409142/1/Queens-of-Cosplay.

There was also a weekend long Community Day this weekend (ending early tomorrow morning) that had all the old shinies more available on PoGo. I got a shiny Chikorita, Squirtle, Beldum and 2 Charmanders.  I also went to a Christmas chorus event!

That’s it for today, see everyone when I post tomorrow!

Monday

Today I read a few more chapters of Ashes of the Past. The new chapters for today are Mauling Snarks, The Gamer (webcomic) and Headstart. There are no new stories from SDA today, yay! I also activated another Meltan box.

I reread ‘Campione of the Holy Grail’ by fg7dragon. It’s a crossover between Heaven’s Feel (Type Moon Universe, same time frame but different route from Fate/Stay Night) and Campione! Illya ends up the last one alive to face Angra Mayu and ends up becoming a Campione for killing him. She becomes the 7th Campione and does what she wants (basically explore the world). There are only six chapters, but it’s pretty good! The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12288122/1/Campione-of-the-Holy-Grail.

I read a new story called ‘Reality Bites Worm’ by Selector. It’s a pure Worm fic that has Taylor triggering at a different time. She gathers an all female team together and with some help becomes a force for good. I find it interesting and it has 27 chapters, with more to come as it was updated on the 27th of last month. Assume most if not all female capes in Brockton Bay join or are influenced by them. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12952222/1/Reality-Bites-Worm.

Finally, I also watched “Christopher Robin.” I enjoyed it and it’s message, that living to work isn’t really living at all. I remember watching Winnie the Pooh when I was younger and thought the live action versions were nice. I like the symbolism that he’s the Heffalump taking all the happiness away. I would very much recommend it!

Nothing more today, friends! See you on Thursday!
