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.

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).

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!

An Irregular and Meltan Weekend (with some other things mixed in)

Friday

Today I finished The Irregular at Magic High School book 18 and read book 19 and read some more of Escape from the Hokage’s Hat. There were new chapters for Mauling Snarks, Ashes to Flame and History’s Strongest Disciple Again? (the one I beta read). I also read some more sakurademonalchemist.

The first new one (again for me, not overall) was ‘Swords of a Devil.’ It’s a Type Moon Universe and High School DxD crossover where Shirou is a devil and is kidnapped by the Church after he is adopted.   It was for the Holy Swords project that Kiba was a part of and it tempers his ‘saving people’ thing. Watch as he changes things, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11974930/1/Swords-of-a-Devil.

The other new one was ‘Queen of the Grimm.’ It’s a Once Upon a Time and Grimm crossover. Grimm is a TV Series about Nick Burkhardt who is a Grimm. A Grimm can see the true form of Wesen, which are part human and part animal. He defends his city from evil Wesen and helps those in trouble.

The story has Regina leaving Emma in charge of the town in order to get away from the Charmings and her mother. She ends up in Portland, OR and meets Nick. She is also a Grimm and helps him and others out. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11555943/1/Queen-of-the-Grimm.

I also watched the first few episodes of “Storage Wars: Northern Treasures.” It was okay, but the original is so much better. There’s way too much animosity and bad mouthing in this one. In the original, while they were competing, it was more of a friendly rivalry most of the time. In this one, they just seem to hate each other. I wouldn’t really recommend it, personally.

Nothing more for today, see you tomorrow.

Saturday

Today, I read more Escape from the Hokage’s Hat. There were new chapters for Relic of the Future, Harry Potter and the Stargate and Heroes Assemble! and Black Sky (Yay, it’s back. Though it’s only sporadically for now). Other than that I watched some more episodes of The Irregular at Magic High School. It was kinda a slow day.

I’ll talk about the Artemis Fowl series. It’s an 8 book series about Artemis Fowl, a genius middle school student who wants to make back the money his family had lost. He decides to do this by stealing from the fairies, who he had found out were real. He kidnaps a LEPRecon (Lower Elements Police, Recon division, because they live underground) Captain, Holly Short. The first book has him against LEPRecon, but they’re on sort of the same side after that. I like the series a lot and am looking forward to the movie I heard about next year.

Hope to have more tomorrow!

Sunday

Today was more Escape from the Hokage’s Hat and episode of The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for The Unseen Hunt and two short omakes for Taylor Varga. Other than that I worked on the Let’s Go, Meltan PoGo tasks and finally got to the fifth set with needing to do 10 raids tomorrow to complete it and a few chapters of Mists of a Dawning Sky.

Since I, once again, have very little, I’ll talk about the Outlander series. Outlander is a book series about Claire Randall who is having a second honeymoon with her husband Frank (after WWI) in Scotland. She goes through a stone circle and ends up in 1743 and gets caught up in the Scots revolt of the time. She meets Jamie Fraser and has to make a decision: try and get back to her time or live her life here. There are eight books out now with at least one more on the way. I like this book series and the TV series follows it well (overly so in some cases).

R Rated Content

There is sex in the series, but the main warning I’ll give is that there is a graphic scene in both the book and TV series where there is a male raping another male. Just to give fair warning.

R Rated Content

That’s it for today, see everyone where I post tomorrow.

Monday

Today, I finished rereading Mists of the Dawning Sky, finished watching the first (and currently only) season of The Irregular at Magic High School and completed the Let’s Go, Meltan quests (even though I already had more than a few Meltans from sending Pokémon to Let’s Go). There were new chapters for Reincarnation Roulette, Mauling Snarks and Seerking’s Asylum. I read some more sakurademonalchemist again.

I reread their story, ‘Flames of the Black Cat,’ which is a Black Cat and KHR crossover. Black Cat is about a Sweeper (bounty hunter) named Train Heartnet who is a former member of an assassination organization called Chronos. He and his companions have to fight against Chronos and later his former best friend’s (who killed his girlfriend for changing him from an assassin) organization. I like both the anime and manga and definitely recommend it.

The story has Train reincarnating as female Tsuna, who has a male twin. Realizing he/she’ll be in a bad situation later, Train leaves and becomes a hit woman (though she hides her gender). Watch as she changes the plan of the Vongola just by existing and finds a few more reincarnated friends, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12918478/1/Flames-of-the-Black-Cat.

The other story I reread was ‘Fated Bonds,’ which is a Fate/Stay Night and Naruto crossover. It has Archer Emiya summoned along with the Shinigami. He leads a life as a blacksmith in Konoha until he finds his ‘summoner’ a young Naruto. He takes Naruto in and helps change Sasuke’s fate. Find out how by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12288979/1/Fated-Bonds.

Finally, I read ‘The Witch of 221b Baker Street,’ which is a Sherlock and Harry Potter crossover. It has Female Harry becoming disillusioned by the magical world after 4th year and getting away rather than being used. She becomes Joanne Watson and ends up as Sherlock’s roommate. You can find the story, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12245680/1/The-Witch-of-221b-Baker-Street.

There was also a new chapter for a story by ack1308 called ‘Another Way.’ It’s a Worm story where Amy (or Amelia in this case) is never taken from her father (because he isn’t captured). She grows up as a supervillain’s daughter and it changes her. Read how by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11481821/1/Another-Way.

Sherlock is a 3 episode per season, British TV series that has Sherlock in modern London. It’s okay, but has a habit of leaving the audience at a cliffhanger for a while (There was some time between season 1 and 2 if I remember correctly).

There was also a new chapter of a story by Kenichi618 called ‘Shinobi of the High Seas.’ It’s a Naruto and One Piece crossover where Naruto is immortal and after some time looking after the Elemental Nations, (he leaves Konoha to be a protector of the EN when he finds out he’s immortal. He never had a family with Hinata) he decides to see the rest of the world. He eventually meets Luffy early on his (Luffy’s) journey and hangs out with him for a while. He gets his own ship and crew. Find out how he interacts with the One Piece world here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6314806/1/Shinobi-of-the-High-Seas.

I’m writing this before I head out to a showing of the new Pokémon movie – “The Power of Us” and will write a little about it when I get back before I post this. Which will be here –

I really liked it, the movie did a good job of mixing Pokémon and real world problems everyone has. One of the main ones, and relevant to most people, is that lies only cause problems, not solve them. Lies cause a lot of the problems in the movie that could have easily been avoided otherwise. I would definitely recommend The Power of Us. It’s showing in select theaters on the 28th and the 2nd. There still might be tickets left if you want to see it (there were less than 10 people including me in the theater tonight). Hope you like it too!

Thanks for reading and see everyone on Thursday!

 

Happy Turkey Day!! (Thanksgiving)

Tuesday

Today, I finished Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils. There was only a new chapter for Revenant. Other than watching the first ten episodes of the The Irregular at Magic High Shcool, I mostly played PoGo, KHUx and Fate/GO. I was mostly busy with relatives and Thanksgiving prep.

In recompense, I’ll talk about the Inkworld Trilogy. It starts with the first book, Inkheart. It’s about a father (Mortimer or Mo), who repairs old books and his daughter (Meggie) who have a special ability, to read people and characters into and out of books. When she was little, her father accidentally read her mother into the book ‘Inkheart’ and brought out the main villain, some of his goons and Dustfinger, a fire-eater. Now, the villain wants to use their abilities to bring his strongest allies to this world. How will they get out of this? You can find out in Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath. I really love this trilogy because it tries to answer an interesting question; does a story really end when the book ends?

Hope I’ll have more for the rest of the days this week, but with Thanksgiving; who knows?

Wednesday

There wasn’t much again today, but at least there’s more than yesterday. There were new chapters for Burning Ice, Harry Potter and the Stargate, Mending the Knots, and Heroes Assemble! Played more PoGo, KHUx and Fate/GO (end of the replay of the former Christmas event).

Seerking is finally back and with the last of their main stories (that I might have mentioned or not, he hasn’t posted an actual chapter for it since the week before I started the blog. Though he might have posted an interlude that I talked about. Really, really need to make that list), ‘Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion.’ It’s a Code Geass story that has Lelouch actually planning to rebellion (and working out rather than being a lazy bum). He takes other people into consideration and has better connections with people. Things happen differently, but his goal is still the same; to get overthrow his father and find out who killed his mother. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10724053/1/Code-Geass-The-Prepared-Rebellion-V2.

The family and I went to go see the new Grinch movie tonight and I have to say I liked it a lot. The songs were good in my opinion and I liked that they gave the all the characters a better back-story. I very much enjoyed the organ that the Grinch had in his cave. All in all, I would recommend people to go see it. It’s not just a movie for young kids, all ages would like it (in my opinion, considering there were essentially three generations of my family that liked it).

Finally I reread another of sakurademonalchemist’s stories, ‘Fiery Rebirth.’ It’s a Harry Potter and KHR story where Rokudo Mokuro is Harry. Petunia sold him to the Estranio family when he was young and he gained the ability to transform into a Pheonix and have a burning day (turning him into a young kid with no memories for a few weeks). He activates this ability to get his body back from the First Generations’ Mist Guardian (Daemon Spade) and turns them both into babies. This causes a ripple effect that ends them up in England. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13014149/1/Fiery-Rebirth.

That’s it for today. See everyone when I post tomorrow!

Thursday

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope everyone who celebrates it (cause I know people from all around the world read this blog) had a happy day with lots of food and their loved ones! Moving on, because I was not on the cooking crew, I was able to read more today, even if most of it was from sakurademonalchemist. There were new chapters for How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk, Taylor Varga (finally!) and Reincarnation Roulette.

The first of the ones I reread (from sakurademonalchemist) was ‘Elemental Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Naruto crossover with the Female Tsuna character being the Sand Sibling’s cousin on their mom’s side through Nana. When she goes to visit she is able to help Gaara with his issues. She is also able to help some Konoha ninjas (including our favorite blonde ninja and his quiet stalker [I mean, fellow shinobi]). In exchange they help her deal with her issues in her hometown and with other things. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13036342/1/Elemental-Sky.

The second one I reread was ‘Sunshine.’ It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover where Renatto (Reborn as a young kid) becomes a young female Harry’s penpal. They keep in contact until he tells him how to deal with a certain Toad. She runs away after and she becomes his Sky. She causes many changes and most of them are for the better! It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12354356/1/Sunshine.

I also read some stories I haven’t read from them, with the first being ‘Golden King of Zero.’ It’s a Familiar of Zero and Type Moon universe crossover, with Louise summoning Ko Gil (Kid Gilgamesh, who is better liked) as her familiar. Ko Gil is surprised and (rightly) blames the old Vampire Troll for his problems. What will happen with him as the Gandalfr? Find out on the other side of this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11944888/1/Golden-King-of-Zero.

The second was ‘Empathy,’ which is a Harry Potter and Scorpion crossover. Scorpion is an American TV show about a group of genii who work for the government (sometimes) to solve issues other’s can’t. They’re lead by Walter, who is the smartest of them all. Paige (who’s son, Ralph, is also a genius) helps them understand other people and translates them to others. I like this show, even if I’m behind on it, so I would recommend it.

Empathy has Harry being adopted as Adrian O’Brien and is Walter’s brother. He is an empath and joins the team slightly before the show after being released from confinement in the hospital in the wizarding world (because they thought he was too powerful). He helps the team with their missions and solves problems that come up. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11903581/1/Empathy.

Next is ‘Moonlight Star,’ which is a Sailor Moon and Nanoha crossover. It has Chibiusa ending up back in time during the events of the first season. She befriends the main character of the series and helps solve things, changing the future (or at least it will). The story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11784932/1/Moonlight-Star.

The last one was ‘Devil of the Forgotten.’ It’s a Harry Potter and High School DxD (it’s non-M rated) where the female Harry is Rias’ missing sister. She shows up right before the story started with her peerage (to hard to explain quickly, other than it also mixes Hellsing). She changes many things and tries to save her sister from her fate. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11830822/1/Devil-of-the-Forgotten.

Finally, I also started rereading a story by anothvortex called ‘Escape from the Hokage’s Hat.’ It’s another Naruto is kicked out after he retrieves Sasuke back, but this one has Tsunade, Shizune and Hinata joining him. It’s an interesting story and is about 42 chapters long, but hasn’t been updated since 2012 so I don’t think it will be finished. If you can overcome that, the link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4991314/1/Escape-from-the-Hokage-s-Hat.

Nothing more, other than that I’m full of food. See everyone on Monday!

Happy Veterans Day!

Friday

Today I finished Run With You and read the sixth through eighth novels of The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for Another Fine Mess, double jeu, Ashes to Flame, and Mauling Snarks. Sadly this is all I read today, but I did watch some more Doctor Who TV Movies.

The first was called “The Waters of Mars.” It has the 10th Doctor ending up with the crew of the first human Mars’ team. He knows from history that something bad happens the day he shows up. Thus he is faced with the choice to leave and let things happen or interfere and change things.

Next was both parts of “End of Time.” It has the Ood (yes, there is a species called the Ood and yes, and odd joke was made in their first episode), telling the Doctor that something that his old friend/enemy The Master was going to be revived. He rushes back and faces The Master and an unexpected enemy. This is also the last time the 10th Doctor is the main character. The 11th Doctor is regenerated into at the end of Part 2. The !0th’s last words are still very sad.

Since I don’t have anything else new, I’ll end this for today!

Saturday

Today, I read the ninth through eleventh novels of The Irregular at Magic High School. The new chapters today were for: Harry Potter and the Stargate, Another Fine Mess, Relic of the Future, Stand Together and Smile, Heroes Assemble!, and Tsunami. I actually read some stories I haven’t mentioned yet, so lets get to it!

First was starting to reread the first in the series ‘Stars Aligned’ called ‘An Unexpected Christmas Miracle’ by batistaangel15. It’s a Doctor Who fic about the 10th Doctor and Rose going to a Christmas planet before the battle of Canary Wharf. It’s fun and fluffy and the rest of the series happens when Rose isn’t lost to another universe. Haven’t finished cause I’m reading other things. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10892469/1/An-Unexpected-Christmas-Miracle.

I also read some chapters from the Type Moon side crossover manga “All Around Type Moon – Ahnenerbe no Nichijou.’ I found it by looking for a story where kaleid Illya meets original Illya. It’s a bunch of silly crossovers between Type Moon characters at a café called Ahnenerbe. I read long enough to find the chapter I was looking for (the chapters are linked, but not by very much.

I also got an update for a story named ‘Restart’ by Masseffect-TxS. It’s an RWBY story that has Jaune being one of the last humans and going up against the King of Grimm. When he wins at the cost of his life, he ends up waking up as he is being born. What will he do to make sure what happens in his first lifetime doesn’t happen again? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11663620/1/Restart. It was just the author saying that they edited the first few chapters based on something just released in a new episode of Season 6 (I’m way behind, need to watch and catch up sometime).

I also watched the first two episodes of Season 5 of Doctor Who. I officially met the 11th Doctor and his new companion, Amelia (Amy) Pond (and his to-be companion Rory Williams). After meeting Amelia when she was young (after he crashes into her garden), he promises to help her with something when he gets back in 20 mins. However, he comes back twelve years later and she’s not happy to see him. After helping her out he invites her to come with him. I’m looking forward to watching more later!

It was also the Community Day for Pokémon Go and Cyndaquil was the focus today. I only walked for 50 mins because of issues with logging in and that a memorial service for one of my church members was in the middle of it. She was a great woman and will be dearly missed. I did get two shinnies and that’s enough for me.

That’s it for today, see everyone tomorrow!

Sunday

Today, I read the twelfth and thirteenth novels of The Irregular at Magic High School and some more chapters of An Unexpected Christmas Miracle. There were new chapters for: The Unseen Hunt, SAO: The Eroge and Seerking’s Asylum. I also reread Flames of the Night Sky.

I reread parts of the second story in the ‘Reinforced’ series by Lupine Horror. The first one is called ‘Reinforced Magic’ and it’s a crossover between Lyrical Nanoha and Harry Potter. At the end of the second season of Lyrical Nanoha (called A’s) a character named Reinforce is destroyed to stop a threat. However instead of being destroyed, she ends up in front of a young Harry Potter who just had acid poured on half his face. She merges with him to help him and stays with him while teaching him her magic. When they end up at Hogwarts, things really get interesting. The link to the story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10181533/1/Reinforced-Magic. The second one (the one I read) is called ‘Reinforced Chamber’ and deals with Harry’s second year and meeting the rest of the Lyrical Nanoha crew. This one can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10242368/1/Reinforced-Chamber. The author is still working on the third story at this time.

I spent most of the afternoon going around my town looking for a Pokéstop that had the task for a new Pokémon this month, nincada. I spent several hours doing it, but couldn’t find one. When I posted this to the GroupMe for the area, I was informed where one was not far from where I had been searching. … Needless to say I got it and caught the Pokémon. Sadly, last night the main GroupMe group for PoGo in my area semi-imploded and now there are more groups based on the factions. As I am neutral (if unhappy at being kicked out of a side group because of one of the instigators getting someone to add them and then they kicked everyone out. Luckly, they couldn’t kick out the owner and he kicked them out and reinstated us), I’m in all groups (except the Valor and Mystic ones, cause I’m Instinct. Not that I really care, honestly, it’s just a game) and hopefully things will get better.

Wow, these posts are really short this weekend, right? Tomorrow I’ll post, so see you then!

Monday

I read only the fourteenth novel of The Irregular at Magic High School today. I also re-watched episodes 8 to 10 of GATE because I wanted to re-watch Rory Mercury’s verbal beat down of the Japanese Senate representative. There were new chapters for Another Fine Mess (which lead me to the previous sentence), Mauling Snarks and Tsunami.

I also read/reread some more sakurademonalchemist stories. The first one I started rereading was called ‘Naruto Emiya.’ It’s a crossover between Naruto and the Fate part of the Type Moon universe (or Natsu-verse). It has Zelretch (the immortal troll) finding Naruto almost dead in Konoha (when he was young, like 8) and sends him to Kiritsugu soon after Illya is born. Being raised with the Einzberns and training under earlier mentioned immortal troll, he changes many things. Find out more here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10005938/1/Naruto-Emiya.

Another one I reread was ‘Sorcellerie Miraculeuse.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Ladybug and Cat Noir crossover. Female Harry leaves Britain after the Triwizard Tournaments with Fleur’s families help. She ends up in class with the Miraculous crew and becomes Ladybug instead of Marinette. This changes many things. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12050723/1/Sorcellerie-Miraculeuse.

Finally, I read ‘On a Wing and a Prayer’ for the first time (Sadly nothing to do with The Greatest American Hero series even though the title is based off the theme song). It’s a Supernatural and Fate/Zero crossover. After season 2, Sam goes to Fuyuki to participate in a tournament to try and save his brother from Hell. However, he only gets a shade of a hero. Going anyway changes many things; find out what they are (even though it’s unfinished) here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12188071/1/On-a-Wing-and-a-Prayer.

I got a new chapter for a story called ‘Moving On: Tales of Marinette & Adrien’ by HawkwardDolphin. It’s a Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir story about Marinette thinking of moving on from Adrien and Chat Noir (what he’s called in the story) telling her to do what makes her happy. Things are a mess because of the ‘Love Square’ (only technically a square, but that’s what fans call it). Read what happens, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11709578/1/Move-On-Tales-of-Marinette-Adrien.

I also started reading a story called ‘My Name is Harry Potter’ by megamatt09. It’s a crossover between the DC universe and Harry Potter. Harry is an auror who sees something he shouldn’t have and is thrown through the Veil. But he survives and plots how to get revenge with the League of Assassins. Watch how he carves a new life for himself, here – https://archiveofourown.org/works/4002850.

R-rated Content

So I’m just gonna flat out say it, I can only think of a few of megamatt09’s stories that are not more than liberally filled with sex scenes. In fact, a few of his stories are just a collection of one shots of Harry or Spiderman having sex with different women. I read them for the story, not the sex. However I’m also an adult, so I would hope that any underage people reading this will not follow the link. This one does have sex, but it doesn’t ever become as prominent as his other stories and starts after a few chapters. Fair warning.

R-rated Content

Today was also a very sad day for Marvel fans with the passing of The Legend – Stan Lee. He was the creator of some of our favorite Marvel heroes, including Spiderman and the X-Men. His cameos in the MCU will be missed and I look forward to him hopefully being in at least the Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 movies.

See everyone of Thursday, which will be the day before Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee comes out! See everyone then! (Posted at Midnight)

Yes, There are A Lot of New Original Stories in this One! (Mostly Because of sakurademonalchemist)

Tuesday

So finished rereading the last part of Black Sky and am looking forward to the author putting more out soon (hopefully). I also read a few more chapters of Ashes of the Past (early 50’s) because I’ve seen new chapters but I want to finish rereading first. There were updates for It’s in the Cards, Queen of the Seas, A Ninja Summoned, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, and Seerking’s Asylum. I spend the rest of the day reading stories by sakurademonalchemist and watching shows from the Who-verse.

I decided to read some stories by sakurademonalchemist that I hadn’t before and the first one was ‘Demonic Jewels.’ It’s a KHR AU (Alternate Universe) where there are Demons and the female Tsuna is training to become a jewel summoner. She ends up as Hibari’s roommate because no one else will. It’s interesting and I like it. If you want to read (just remember that this author rarely finishes stories) it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12877054/1/Demonic-Jewels.

The next one is called ‘Wrathful Skies’ and is a Harry Potter and KHR crossover. The female Harry is Xanxus’ half sister and calls Krampus to her neighborhood one Christmas when she’s young. She runs away and becomes ferial with Sky flames and a wolf partner. Squalo finds her and takes her back to the Varia where things become interesting. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12457722/1/Wrathful-Skies,

Then was ‘Partners in Crime’ which is another Harry Potter and KHR crossover. It has a young Harry being abandoned in Itay and finds a young (female) Belphegor and they team up to steal. After killing a high up Varia officer, Xanxus comes and recruits them. Watch as things change here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12419551/1/Partners-in-Crime.

After that, there was ‘Queen of Conquerors’ which is a Harry Potter and Type Moon Universe crossover. It has a young female Harry being transported to the time of Alexander the Conqueror and is adopted as his daughter. She grows up and is his heir before she is called back to her time for the Triwizard Tournament. Watch as her upbringing affects the wizarding world, just click this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12168885/1/Queen-of-Conquerors.

Continuing, there was ‘Here in an Instant, Gone in a Flash’ which is a triple crossover. It has Harry as the main character, includes the DC TV Universe and has The Librarian TV movie elements too. When Ripper chases Harry into the tree (when he was young, see Book 3), it’s struck by lightning and he gains speedster powers. He then becomes the Magical Librarian (the other Librarian still gets his own job later) and eventually goes to Central City before the events of The Flash. There’s more too it, but that’s the jist of it. It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12213589/1/Here-in-an-Instant-Gone-in-a-Flash.

Let’s take a quick break to talk about the DC TV Universe and The Librarian. The DC TV Universe consists of Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Arrow is about the Green Arrow and his return to his city and taking care of the criminals there. Eventually, The Flash comes in and Barry gets his speedster powers. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes villains and heroes from both series and has them travel through time to take out an immortal villain. Supergirl is about Supergirl and her debut, but eventually connects to the others.  (I know it’s kinda short, but there is a lot in the DC TV Universe.  Cut me a break).

Then there’s The Librarian. It’s about Flynn Carsen, who is kicked out of Uni after getting 20 degrees. He then interviews to become The Librarian (not that he knows what that is at first) and gets the job. He is then sent on an adventure and everything he knows helps him. There were originally three TV movies, but eventually they made a series about it called The Librarians. He activates three others who could have been The Librarian and they form a team.

I’ll cut the sakurademonalchemist stories for now and talk about more tomorrow so I can talk about the Who-verse things I watched. I watched the Doctor Who TV movie, “Planet of the Dead.” It has the Doctor joining a group of people on a bus (including a thief the police are chasing) that is transported to a planet where there’s only sand. They try to get back through the portal, but danger lurks in the distance. The Doctor also gets and ominous warning, “Your song is ending” and “He will knock four times”. Dun, Dun, DUN!

Then I watched the (technical) third season of Torchwood. It’s essentially a five part mini-series called “Torchwood: The Children of Earth.” It has the children of Earth stopping several times and telling people that ‘We are coming.’ An alien race is coming and they want children to make them go away. Watch as the Torchwood and the government clash and try and make them go away.

I also voted today! Not going to talk politics (because it makes people crazy, no really some people on both sides really need to grow up and stop the blame game), but it’s a right people need to exercise and I did!

That’s all I’ll talk about today see you tomorrow! Allon-y, as they say!

Wednesday

So today was mostly me reading the first three The Irregular at Magic High School novels and starting the fourth. Since I mentioned it last post it made me want to reread them. There were new chapters for Demon Lord of the End (the real third chapter), Burning Ice, The Healing Touch and Heroes Assemble! I also learned that Seerking is taking a break from his schedule until the 21ist.

I reread a Quatermass story called ‘Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, Ashikabi’s Life for Me.’ It’s a Sekirei and Pirates of Caribbean (I’m not gonna explain this one, look it up and watch it if you don’t know it. Well, at least the first one, the rest are take it or leave it) crossover. It has Captian Jack Sparrow being reincarnated into Minato. This changes many things. Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510813/1/Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho-An-Ashikabi-s-Life-for-Me. (I might have talked about this one, but whatever.  I should probably make a list of the series and fanfiction I’ve already recommended) That’s really all for today, but there are things I need to finish from yesterday (there was a lot yesterday and there’s more).

The last of the new stories (for me) from sakurademonalchemist was ‘Trick Hunt.’ It’s an Avengers (MCU) and Supernatural crossover. Supernatural is a popular demon hunting show following Dean and Sam Winchester who are ‘Hunters.’ They hunt and destroy things that hunt humans. Originally they’re looking for their dad, but things change. It has over 13 seasons and is still going.

The story has Loki being sent into a human body without his memories by Odin after the first movie as repentance. God sees this and changes his body to Dean Winchester. When Dean is brought back at the beginning of Season 3, Loki is awakened and he and Dean work to together to solve their problems. Oh, did I mention that he’s back before he attacked New York as well?  See how things are changed here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11805656/1/Trick-Hunt.

I also got a new chapter for a sakurademonalchemist story yesterday called ‘Flames of the Night Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha crossover. Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (from now on called Lyrical Nanoha) is about an elementary school girl (Nanoha Takamichi) who finds a magical ferret (from space and who is really a shape shifting young boy) named Yuuno. He wants her to find the Jewel Seeds that were on his crashed ship. However, there is another young named Fate who wants them as well. There are currently five seasons and four movies (the movies are a separate universe, with the first two covering the first two seasons and the third and fourth being a new story based on a games), though the fourth movie hasn’t aired in the US yet.

The story has Tsuna’s mom dying young and his dad cannot be contacted, so Tsuna ends up being adopted by his mom’s friends, the Takamichis. There gets mixed up in the events of Lyrical Nanoha and meets Xanxus and his crew. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12455154/1/Flames-of-a-Night-Sky.

I also started rereading a sakurademonalchemist story called ‘Queen’s Redemption.’ It’s a KHR and Once Upon a Time crossover. Once Upon a Time is a show about a universe called ‘The Enchanted Forrest,’ where fairy tales originate from. However, there are many differences. It starts with Snow White and Prince Charming’s wedding, where the Evil Queen promises to take away their happy endings. She sets up a spell that transports everyone to a ‘world without magic’ (ya know, our world) and the only one who can break it is Snow’s and Charming’s daughter on her 28th birthday. They send her ahead as a baby before the spell hits. They are stuck in a time loop (without their memories) in Storybrook until Emma (their daughter) shows up. Watch as she helps them break the curse with the help of the son she gave up, Henry (who is the Evil Queen’s adopted son).

The story has Regina (the Evil Queen) getting hit by a curse by Snow right before the original curse that makes her a child. She grows up into Lal Mitch and regains her memories when the Arcobaleno curse hits. I read some yesterday and some today (but not finished rereading yet). See how things change here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12755096/1/Queen-s-Redemption.

That finishes yesterday as well (you can see why I split it right?). I’ll post tomorrow, see you then!

Thursday

Today I read the fourth through sixth novels of The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for Celestial Worm and Code Geass: Lionheart of the Revolution. I read more chapters for Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me and Queen’s Revenge, but haven’t finished either yet.

I reread a one shot by kb0 called ‘Harry’s Happy Christmas.’ It’s a Harry Potter story that has Harry meeting Santa in a mall ‘Meet Santa’ area and asking for help ending the war. Read as his wish is granted in an interesting way, at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8830812/1/Harry-s-Happy-Christmas.

The only other thing I started rereading was ‘Run With You’ by mltrefry. It’s a Doctor Who Season 3 rewrite where Rose manages to hold on and stays with The Doctor. There are also sequels where the story continues, but I haven’t finished rereading this one yet. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11312389/1/Run-With-You.

That concludes this post and I’ll see everyone on Monday next week!

The Weekend of the Who-verse

Friday

I finished An Accidental Bond and reread the last chapter of Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild. There were new chapters for Seerking’s Asylum (2 chapters), Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks, Cambion and Another Fine Mess. I also reread some of sakurademonalchemists fics.

The first was ‘Iron Maiden,’ which is a Harry Potter and Iron Man crossover. It has a female Harry running away after sixth year and getting an internship under Tony. She does this because he is her real father and it takes a while for that to come out. It’s interesting and I like it, just as before wishing they worked to complete more of their fics. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12967300/1/Iron-Maiden.

The second was ‘Fillies and Colts,’ which is a Harry Potter and KHR crossover. It has Dino Chaivarone being the first-born son of Lily Evans (who married into the Chaivarone). She was lured back because of the war and ‘lost’ her memory (read, James wanted her, so he caused her to forget her life in Italy) and ‘married’ James (she was already married so it didn’t take). When Dino goes to find out what happened, he finds his young half-sister and takes her back with him. Find out more here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12983284/1/Fillies-and-Colts.

The next one, ‘Paranormal Investigator Squad,’ was a new one that came out on Halloween. There’s only one chapter so far, but it’s a KHR where Tsuna and his mother’s family are spiritualists and Tsuna can see ghosts. This changes many things, which you can find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13107803/1/Paranormal-Investigator-Squad.

The last one (from sakurademonalchemist and also a new one), is called ‘It’s in the Cards.’ It’s a KHR and Card Captor Sakura (CCS) fic where a female Tsuna finds the Clow book and becomes the Card Captor. There is a character from CCS, Syaoran, but that’s it other than Kero (so far at least). The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13106363/1/It-s-in-the-Cards.

The last fanfic is ‘Overservations of a Wannabe Kunoichi’ by Quatermass. It’s a Naruto fic where Sakura decides to investigate things while in the academy and finds Naruto’s secret. I haven’t read far, but it looks sort of interesting. Here is the fic – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11483679/1/Observations-of-a-Wannabe-Kunoichi.

I also watch the Christmas special that started off the Sarah Jane Adventures, “Invasion of the Bane.” It’s about a former companion of The Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, and her teenage companions helping to save the earth and the people on it from aliens. It’s fairy interesting, but I’m only watching it because it’s next on the list to watch in the whole Doctor Who continuity.

That’s it for today!! See you on the next line!

Saturday

I started rereading Black Sky from about 100 chapters from the current chapter. There were also new chapters for Harry Potter and the Stargate, Relic of the Future, Tsunami, It’s in the Cards, Queen of the Seas, Heroes Assemble!, Cambion and Another Fine Mess. I spent the rest of the day watching shows from the Doctor Who continuity.

I watched the first season of The Sarah Jane Adventures. It was okay, but it honestly really see it as just another spin-off just to make money. It had only 10 episodes, with every story being two episodes long.

I also watched the Christmas special in between seasons three and four of Doctor Who called, ‘Voyage of the Damned.’ It has The Doctor finding himself aboard an alien cruise liner called ‘Titanic,’ “Because it’s the most famous ship name on Earth,” the crew says. Lol, yeah, but not for good reasons. Of course, with The Doctor and a ship named Titanic, thing are obviously going to go wrong. It was interesting and The Doctor got to say ‘Allons-y Alonso’ (which was mentioned at the end of season two). I also watched the first few episodes of the fourth season and was interested to see Donna back and see the 12th Doctor’s actor in one of the episodes (just as a cast member, still one more Doctor and several seasons he even learned he would be The Doctor).

I then started watching the second season of Torchwood. I actually like Torchwood. The cast actually feels real (unlike the kind of unrealistic relationships in Adventures) and you can empathize with them. Things are starting to go down and I wonder how many members will be there at the end?

Nothing more today, tomorrow’s only a line away!

Sunday

I reread some more Black Sky and slept a lot today because my dog woke me up because of a storm again last night. There was only an omake from Taylor Varga today to placate those wanting a new chapter. No other new chapters, but I did watch more from the Doctor Who continuity.

I finished Torchwood season two and wow is it a sad overall story. I’m not going to talk about it (ya know, spoilers wink), but so many things culminated at the end that it was kind in your face (especially with Gray). How to pick up from that I don’t know (well, Jack knows, sadly), but it’s not something to look forward to.

I also finished the fourth season of Doctor Who and got to see all the shows combine for the last storyline of the season (even some older characters!) I was sad that Donna was only a companion for a season like Martha was. However we also meet River Song for the ‘first’ time (she knows more than that, but ya know spoilers).

I watched the first two episodes (one story) of the second season of The Sarah Jane Adventures and I’m already less interested than the last season. Also, the kind of main female teenage character (who admittedly was not in the season four Doctor Who conclusion) leaving the show after one storyline is kinda sad (for the show, not sad, sad).

That’s it for today, hopefully there will be more tomorrow!

Monday

Once again I reread more Black Sky, but I may finish tomorrow! There were new chapters for Tsunami and Mauling Snarks, but that was it. I spent most of the day studying and playing KHUx and Fate/GO.

There was a new chapter from ‘Jaune Ryu-Long, the Dragon Contractor’ by azndrgn. It’s a RWBY fic where Jaune is kicked out of Arc family; only to find out he can use dragon powers and summon them. The only downside is that he has to marry six women (RWBY, Pyrrha and another side character). This is the 60th chapter and it’s the first update in a while (at least almost three months because I haven’t mentioned it here). It’s good and the first fic I read from this author. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12326537/1/Jaune-Ryu-Long-the-Dragon-Contractor.

The only other update I got was from an older story, ‘double jue’ by kurohaha. It’s a Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir story where Cat Noir is shot on a patrol and finds his way onto Marinette’s balcony. She come home (from a family event) and finds and helps him, this leads to them getting to know each other better. It update was just a note saying they don’t know if it’s going to continue or not. There are sixteen chapters to read, but know that the story might not continue. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11835222/1/double-jeu.

Since there is nothing else for today (and I have some time), I’ll talk about The Irregular at Magic High School. It’s a Japanese light novel turned anime that I’m a fan of. The story is about Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba going to a magic high school. Magic is technology based and has a science behind it. While the older of the two ‘siblings’ Tatsuya is in the Course 2, while Miyuki is in Course 1. Tatsuya is also more subservient to Miyuki and things are not as they seem. There are 26 light novels in Japan (there are 9 out in America, so far) with another coming out on the 10th of this month. The anime was only one season and there is an movie (that I didn’t know about until now, it’s a side story that’s not in the light novels) that came out last year. I would recommend it, both the anime and light novels.

While I was looking up stuff about Irregular at Magic High School, I got an email saying that a new chapter of Cambion came out and I read it. That really is it for today and this post, so I’ll see everyone on Thursday. And vote tomorrow if you’re from USA and haven’t yet, I know I will!

 

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!)
