A Long Week and More Fics (to Make Up for Last Week’s Absence)

Hello my readers!  Sorry about not posting last week.  I was busy and the weekend wasn’t any better.  I’ve worked 51 hours this week and am looking forward to a quiet weekend.  I’ve finished rereading Seerking’s Asylum and continued rereading some more of Ashes of the Past.  The new chapters over the last two weeks are: How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk, Relic of the Future (1st & 2nd Sat), Gun Bunny, Taylor Varga [Main Story], Email Exchange (2 chaps), The Unseen Hunt (1st & 2nd Sun), Ginny’s Plan (Last Chapter), Deku: The Telekinetic Hero, Celestial Worm, Compass of thy Soul (1st & 2nd Mon, 1st & 2nd Thurs), Mauling Snarks (1st & 2nd Mon, 1st & 2nd Fri), Taylor Varga [Side Story/Omake] (1st Tues & 2nd Thurs), Trial by Fire (1st Tues, 2nd Mon & 2nd Fri), Wyvern, Playing Our Roles, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard? (1st & 2nd Wed), Broken Dreams, Seerking’s Asylum, An Essence of Silver and Steel, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor, Honestly Harry – Year of the Spares, The Importance of Intent: After the Credits, The Lady of the Flies (2nd Mon & 2nd Thurs), Famiglia Drabbles (2nd Mon & 2nd Fri), Service with a Smile, Heroes Assemble!, Titanfall, Luna Lovegood and the Dark Lord’s Diary, Archer and The Dragon’s Knight.

Before I get to the fanfiction, I wanted to talk about an interesting anime I rewatched the first season of recently.  Psycho Pass is psychological dystopian crime anime.  While the rest of the world is in chaos (or so we’re led to believe, there’s not much mentioned outside of Japan and that’s only in the Movie), Japan is a ‘utopia’ because the Sybil system can read people’s Psycho Pass (aka their intentions and motives [in general terms]) and judge if they are a ‘latent criminal.’  Instead of police there are now Inspectors and Enforcers.  Inspectors what you expect them to be.  However, Enforcers are ‘latent criminals’ that work for the law for a little bit of freedom.  Follow Akane as she becomes an Inspector and learns the reality behind their ‘utopia.’

For the Myrddin de Celestis quest, The Dragon Phoenix is a multi-crossover based on Harry Potter.  It has Harry becoming the Dragon Phoenix! A role that means the world is soon to be at risk from ‘The Storm’ a mysterious tragedy that will be the end of the world unless he defeats it.  Eventually a Harry/Ginny story, mostly.  It has elements from Buffy: the Vampire Slayer, W.I.T.C.H, Cardcaptor Sakura, Sailor Moon and more!  It’s not complete and is sort of overcomplicated.

The Soul Within is a Harry Potter fic.  It has Harry having a twin only he can hear that he wants to give a body to eventually.  Looks to eventually have him with his twin and the Greengrasses. Only three chapters, not complete.

Shifting Destiny is a Harry Potter and X-Men crossover.  It has Harry ending up married to Pixie after a trip to Vegas.  He joins the X-Men and gets away from the Wizarding World.  Only four chapters, not finished.

Buffy of the Rebellion is a Buffy: The Vampire Slayer fic where Buffy dies, but has her heart restarted before she even goes to Sunnydale.  She escapes and learns more about the Supernatural world while learning how to defend herself.  Things still happen with the new Slayer in Sunnydale.  Sort of interesting, but isn’t much. Not finished.

Out of Reign is a Harry Potter fic.  Harry finds his mother’s trunk in the attic after second year and learns some new things.  He pretends he’s normal with the Dursley’s help to fool Aunt Marge.  Not finished, only three chapters.

The next few fics are by White Angel of AuralonRedirection is a Harry Potter fic.  It’s a Marauder era fic where Sirius figures out that some of their pranks are going to too far and changes himself.  A girl finds she likes his changes and they get together changing things drastically for the war.  It’s interesting for only 3 chapter.  It’s complete!

Changed Past is a Harry Potter one-shot.  When chasing a criminal, he ends up in the past.  He decides to change somethings, but not too much.  It’s interesting how things can change so much and yet stay the same.

Irish Home is another Harry Potter one-shot.  Harry decides to go live at one of his family’s houses instead of going back to the Dursley’s after first year.  It’s about how he adjusts and meets the people around him.

The last fic I’ll mention is another new one from sakurademonalchemist.  It’s a Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist crossover called New Beginnings.  In it, Ed is Fem Ed and Fem Harry (who is from sometime after the war) offers to cover the cost of Alphonse’s body and soul.  Now a voice in Fem Ed’s head Fem Harry helps them out.  Read the first chapter (at least) in the compilation fic and am looking forward to more chapters.

I could post more, but I need to add the links to the post and do some other things.  Look forward to next week’s post!  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Quest Week (and I’m on Time!)

Hello everyone!  I’m on time today, so yay!  More Taylor Varga and From Fake Dreams this week.  Another one full of work, including a ‘half’ day today.  With the Chicago Go Fest happening, shiny Pokémon are more prevalent and Horsea and Abra (maybe Clefairy) are now shiny.  The new chapters this week are: Seerking’s Asylum (Mon & Thurs), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Worm – Waterworks, Game On! 3 1, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Heroes Assemble!, Red String, Short Story Drabbles, Demon Skylark, Titanfall, Archer, Ginny’s Plan, Are You Afraid of the Dark? & Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo.

There’s not much this week, so I’ll just get to the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 51 was Rose Potter and the Mirror of Fate.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Rose Potter is Harry’s hidden twin sister.  They run into each other on their birthday before first year at Diagon Alley.  It only really covers them shopping and going to the Weasley’s house.  It’s okay, but short.

Chapter 52 is Juniper Rose Potter is a Prankster.  It’s a two-chapter story where Fem. Harry has both her parents and is heading to Hogwarts.  On the train she meets Ginny and they vow themselves to each other.  It doesn’t go much past a different sorting hat song.

Chapter 53 is King of Bandit.  It’s the longest story so far (I know a longer one later as I looked ahead) at 28 chapters originally.  It’s a Harry Potter, Breathe of Fire and Dragon Ball Z crossover (though I don’t really know how DBZ fits in).  Harry’s parents live, but his twin is thought to be the girl-who-lived.  Harry is ignored and runs away at a young age.  He meets the King of Bandit and is trained by him.  He comes back around 6th year for a stealing job and becomes the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher (but very different).  He gets together with Luna, Ginny and an Original Character and sets his sister and Hermione up with OCs.  It’s good, I’ve read it before and I’m sad to see it in here.

Chapter 54 is Hunters Guild and is a sort of reworked version of the previous story.  It was six-chapters and is okay.  Harry is taken by the ‘Hunters Guild’ when it’s learned he’s not wanted and is trained by them.  After several people from the guild give up on protecting his sister because of idiots around them, Harry’s given the job.  Essentially the same pairings I assume.

Chapter 55 is Order of the Covenant.  It was a Harry Potter one-shot where the Potter triplets are split up to protect them and meet up on their birthday before Hogwarts.  The ‘Girl-Who-Lived’ was not supposed to go to the Dursleys, but Dumbles interfered.  Can’t tell how good it is because it’s only a chapter.

Chapter 56 is Demonic Wars.  It was a Cardcaptor Sakura and Sailor Moon (though it’s not shown) one-shot.  In the second series, Sakura is attacked by a demon after she turns Watery.  This leads her to liking Tomoyo(?) and running away to protect her family.  Like I said, no Sailor Moon yet.

Chapter 57 is Fade into the Shadows.  It was an eleven-chapter Twilight story.  Before Bella goes to Forks she learns she’s a reincarnated ninja and retrains herself.  Same basic plot except that Edward and Alice switch places (yes that means he’s with Jasper, get over it).  Things are different, but you’ll have to read to find out.

Chapter 58 is Uncharted Void.  It was a five-chapter Harry Potter and Skulduggery Pleasant crossover (though once again, no Skulduggery Pleasant in it as far as I know).  When Harry goes down the pipe to save Ginny in CoS, he ends up far deeper than he expected.  He fights ancient creatures and learns things before he fights Tom.  Skips most of third year and is changing the timeturner incident like the CoS.

Chapter 59 is Fallen Star. It was a two-chapter Twilight story.  It’s a stupid little one where after Edward dumps her she gets powers (from a meteorite?) and ends up gathering girls to have sex with and fight evil and stupidity (I think).  Yeah, don’t really like this one.

Chapter 60 is Fairytail World Tour.  It’s was Harry Potter and Fairy Tale(?) one-shot.  While at the DoM in Year 5 Harry ends up in the world of Fairy Tales, but things are very different.  Can he fix things, who knows, it’s only a chapter.

That’s it for today, thanks for reading and hope you have a great week.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

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!

A Different Way of Writing

Hello everyone, I’m going to try something different for today’s post. Instead of going day by day, I’m going to just do the whole week (post) together and see how it looks. If people like this style better (after a trial week following this one), I will adopt this one instead of the old style (and vis versa). The chapters that updated this week were: Black Sky (Fri, Sat), Ashes to Flame, Memories of Iron, Devil Arts Online, Mauling Snarks (Fri, Mon, Tues [Omake]), Tsunami (Fri, Tues), History Strongest Disciple Again? (the story I beta), By Your Side is Where I Belong, Heroes Assemble (Sat, Wed), Reality Bites Worm, Jaune Ryu-Long, The Dragon Contractor, Alea lacta Est, The Reclamation of Black Magic, Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope, God Slaying Blade Works, A Sith’s Second Chance, and Devil Ninja.

Next, I’ll go through the fanfiction I read this week, followed by what I watched. I reread Reality Bites Worm, started rereading The XXXX You Say and started rereading Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell. The first new story I reread was from sakurademonalchemist and it was called, ‘Rise of the Black Dragon.’ This is another Harry Potter and KHR crossover with Harry being Xansus this time. He is left in the trash in Italy when he was young and found by Xansus’ mom after the ‘original’ Xansus was killed by one of her patrons. Events follow, but he knows that the Ninth is not is dad and he ends up at Hogwarts. It’s interesting and has 13 chapters currently. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12787598/1/Rise-of-the-Black-Dragon.

The second story I reread by them is ‘Between Lies and Truth,’ which is a KHR and Harry Potter story, again. It has Colonello being a Harry Potter who ran away from England to get away from everything and joined Comsubin (Italian Navy). Lal Mitch discovers that there is much more to her new student than a happy go lucky sniper. There are 10 chapters and it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12903809/1/Between-Lies-and-Truth.

The next from them that I reread is called ‘If Only You Knew’ and is the previous story switched. It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover where Lal Mitch is a female Harry and Colonello helps her deal with the PTSD that no-one else could help her with. It’s eleven chapters and is located here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510267/1/If-You-Only-Knew.

The last from sakurademonalchemist is called ‘Sound of Flames’ and is a pure KHR fic (with some Cardcaptor stuff thrown in). It has a female Tsuna, losing her sight after her flames are sealed. This leads to Hibari finding her sooner and helping her out. Watch how she learns to get around her handicap and still become a great potential boss. The link can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12443581/1/Sound-of-Flames.

Next I read a completely new story (for me) by them called, ‘Shield Wizard.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Rising of the Shield Hero crossover. Rising of the Shield Hero is a story about a boy named ‘Naofumi Iwatani’ who is one of four summoned to be a hero in a new world. However, as he only has a shield, he is not very powerful. After he is betrayed by those who should have been his friends, he becomes cynical and only really trusts those he has control over (like slaves). It was originally a web comic, but is now a light novel and will have an anime soon after the new year.

In the fic, Harry is summon instead of Naofumi and skips being betrayed because he expects it after being a ‘hero’ before. He still befriends some from the original story, but I haven’t read much of the original, so I can’t really say how well it follows it. Still it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11372046/1/Shield-Wizard.

Next I read a story by Quatermass called ‘Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub,’ which is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. It has the Dursley’s dying in the Fuyuki Fire and Taiga taking Harry in. When Harry goes to Hogwarts for the TriWizard Tournament, he finds Mordred (female) healed and kept under stasis until he found her. He takes her with him back to Japan and she (as a powerful human not a Heroic Spirit) is still around for the Fifth Grail War. Watch as she tries to get something from her ‘Father’ that she hasn’t had before, acceptance, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13145171/1/Knight-of-Betrayal-and-Taiga-Cub.

I then read some new stories from the author of ‘The XXXX You Say,’ Selector, starting with ‘Trekking.’ It’s a Worm fic has Taylor having a different triggering event, which leaves her paraplegic and only able to move her eyes. Her powers eventually fix that, and she can control animals, but her main skill is to be able to make any tech from the Star Trek universe. It currently has 16 chapters and is interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13071083/1/Trekking.

Next was ‘Gun Bunny’ which has Taylor triggering with an ability similar to Miss Miltia’s but with the power to make the gun/war machine real after a certain time, if it’s left out. She takes over the Merchants with a healed Squealer and make it more a protector (gang) instead of a drug dealing one. Watch as she, like any good Taylor, escalates, until she gets the right result. This fic’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13046274/1/Gun-Bunny.

Next is a Harry Potter fic with a slight Underworld crossover by the same author called, ‘Harry Potter and the Witches Secret.’

R Rated Content

This fic has Harry ‘Bonding’ tons of witches because he was not taught to control his power and thus attracts witches that are magically compatible. This is not just a Sex fic, but it has a lot of it.

R Rated Content

Harry reforms Britain and has many people under his command. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12575091/1/Witches-Secret.

The ‘sequel’ is called ‘Harry Potter and the Dark Lady,’ and I am in the middle of reading it. It is included in the previous story right after the other story ends. It has Harry dealing with a Dark Lady who wants him, but won’t play nice. However, the author also has a Yahoo group with all their fics, which can be found here – https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Rotaryfile/files.

While I was with my relatives, we watched many things (including football, which I don’t normally do, except for the Superbowl). One thing that always seemed to be on was a buying or building house shows. One of these was “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV. It has host David Bromstad helping lottery winners find their dream home. It’s interesting, but I thought that other than if I really needed a new place, I wouldn’t blow all that money I just won finding the ‘perfect’ house. (Not that I play the lottery or gamble, but that’s a different story). It’s okay to watch, but not too great to do in real life.

Next was “Maine Cabin Masters”, which has a builder, Chase Morrill, working with family and friends to help save abandoned cabins and get them ready for their new owners. This one was okay, but I felt that some of the drama was contrived a little bit to make it more interesting. I would suggest it, but only after watching it a little bit more.

There was also “Building Off the Grid” where they document people building in the middle of no-where. The one I watched was where they were building a survival cabin on a glacier in Alaska. It was interesting, but it looked very cold and I’m not sure I could have done it.

Moving On, we also watched a few episodes of the series “Bones” that ended recently. Even though I’m not really interested in the gory things, this show was really interesting. I’ve watched all the seasons except for the last few ones, and that will happen soon. The character ‘Bones’ and her partner, Booth, are some of my favorite TV personalities.

To finish up (I’ll talk about other things I watched next time) I also saw Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee in theaters and will talk about them. First off, Mary Poppins Returns is a great sequel to the original. It has the original Banks children grown up and Michael has children of his own. When an issue comes up, Mary Poppins shows up to help her older charges and her newer ones. I really love this movie and love that they include little parts in the music where you can hear parts of the original movie’s songs in it.

Spoilers

From the very beginning, Mary Poppins knows what needs to happen, but if everything was resolved quickly, none of her charges would have learned anything. So, she sets everything up so that everyone can have a learning experience. Even if the cliché of having everything fixed at the last minute exists in it.

Spoilers

Bumblebee is also a really good movie. I enjoyed hearing his original voice and learning how he got his name. It showed the American’s first contact with the Autobots and Decepticons. I liked the main female lead, Charlie, but I felt that she very much overshadowed all but John Cena’s character Agent Burns, for the humans at least. Good movie, just needs a stronger ‘human’ cast.

Spoilers

The amount of ‘The Breakfast Club’ references in the movie was amusing. There was even a Rick Roll in there. I don’t know what happens between this movie and the first Transformers movie, but I found interesting parallels between Charlie finding Bumblebee in a junkyard and Sam finding him in a used car lot. Maybe in the next of, however many more movies there’ll be, we’ll find out.

Spoilers

Thanks for reading and like or comment on this post if you prefer this format or not. See everyone on New Years Eve for the last post of the year!

Edit – Forgot the links, fixed!

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!

 

The Second Post

Hello again! Thanks to everyone who has already liked, followed or posted, your response is appreciated.  Shout out to Yomu for being the first to comment!  To finish up a story I didn’t realize I hadn’t last time, after finding the “Cardcapter Sakura” manga I read the whole “Master of the Clow” series and didn’t realize that it was a sequel series to the original “Cardcaptor Sakura” series until afterwards.  I can now look back on that and laugh.  By the way, that series is by a group of authors called CLAMP.  They’ve written many great series like Tsubasa RESERVior CHRoNiCLE, xxxHolic and Chobits to name a few.  They also have another “Cardcaptor Sakura” series called “Clear Cards” which has an anime too.  I can go into those series later.

In the time since I wrote my first post I read a few more chapters on Black Sky and am now at chapter 234.  But I have read more than that though.  I follow a great many stories on Fanfiction.net, Archive of Our Own (AO3), etc.  Sadly many I am following are no longer posting or abandoned.  However, one I am following who has just not been able to get the time to write has finally posted a chapter!  The series is called ‘Taylor Varga’ and is a crossover between an online serial “Worm” and an short really old anime very few know called “Luna Varga.”

Worm is not a happy story, let me put it that way.  When the main characters’ backstory includes getting locked in a school locker, that was full of fermenting female products left to rot over a winter break, for several hours and the school basically ignoring it (for a reason unknown to the character), yeah not a happy story.  Worm involves the dark side of superpowers and how badass the power to control bugs really is, which the main character Taylor gets for being locked in the locker.  I’ve probably only read the very first section of it, but I know a lot about it just from reading the fanfiction about it and looking up relevant information when I needed it.  I enjoy reading the fanfictions because while they don’t (often) ignore the issues in the story, they do a better job in my opinion of solving them.

I still actually have not looked up Luna Varga to watch, I really should sometime, but the basics as I know it are that a princess merges with a lizard like demon to protect her  people against another of his kind.  ‘Taylor Varga’ has a power giving Taylor the Varga demon instead of her getting the bug control power in the locker.  Chaos then ensues, humorous chaos and much confusion.  I was directed to this fanfiction by another author, but spent days reading it a having a good laugh, including the omakes (side stories that don’t actually happen in the story or at a future time for those who don’t know) which have Harry Potter and Marvel miniseries.  The story is on it’s 25th tab on the Sufficient Velocity (SV) reader mode (which only has the main story not the omakes or the comments).  The author mp3.1415player has cross-posted it on Fanfiction.net and AO3, but mostly focuses on SV so the other’s aren’t caught up.  The link to the start of it is – https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/taylor-varga-worm-luna-varga.32119/.

I also read some new chapters from other stories.  Two were from the author sakurademonalchemist on Fanfiction.net and are the latest in a long line of stories the author has started, posted some chapters on, then started a new story.  They’ll occasionally post a new chapter to an old story, but not often.  sakurademonalchemist if you ever read this, I’m sorry, but it’s true.  I still enjoy your stories, but I wish you would finish them.  Having said that, they do finish some stories.  One such is Memories of Nobody, a great Harry Potter and Kingdom Hearts crossover that involves Xion, one of the saddest characters in the Kingdom Hearts series, taking Harry’s place after he is killed to save him and his parent’s hearts after her story ends in Kingdom Hearts.  The link is here – http://www.fanfiction.net/s/11898187/1/.  And the link to sakurademonalchemist’s page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/912889/sakurademonalchemist.

I’m gonna talk a little about Kingdom Hearts since it’s been mentioned.  I’ve played Kingdom Hearts since I was in middle school and next to Pokemon it is my favorite game series.  I am ecstatic that Kingdom Hearts III is finally coming out early next year and sad that they moved it from this year.  I don’t have much time to replay the series, but I’ve been watching a youtuber called SkywardWing play through ‘the games’ (insert Phil from Hercules voice here).  He’s a laugh and is one of the first people to play part of Kingdom Hearts III.  If you want to watch his videos, here is a link to his Youtube channel –  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt4qeayu0d0Yo5NHx_3xY9A.

Well, the end of the day approaches and I want to read a few more chapters of Black Sky and finish the daily missions on the mobile game – Kingdom Hearts Union x.  Good night and talk to y’all tomorrow!

Hello & Welcome

Hello, I’m Matt.  I decided to start this blog in order to write more and share what I’m reading and watching and my thoughts on them.  I’ve been reading a lot of fanfiction lately, but am looking to read or reread books more often.  I’ll also be posting about the movies, TV shows & anime that I’m watching as well.

I’ve been a reader since I was young.  I’ll read most genres except Gore, but I’m not a huge horror fan.  I’ve been interested in Japanese animation since I was very young, when my brother gave me Kiki’s Delivery Service and My Neighbor Totoro and I watched shows such as Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and Dragon Ball Z.  Even though I read a lot when I was younger, it wasn’t until I was in middle school that I found manga.  I was in a Barnes & Noble looking through book titles when I found a book titled, “Cardcaptor Sakura: Master of the Clow Vol. 1.”  I was interested because I’d seen the show on TV and so I bought it.  When I got home and started to read it I learned that it read backwards and had to learn a new way to read.  It took me a few weeks to get used to it and now I can switch between the two reading styles with no effort.

Switching topics, I was an avid fan of Pokemon from the beginning.  I played Red and Blue, played the card game and went to card events where you could earn badges and special cards.  I followed the handheld games until they switched over to the DS, which I didn’t get until much later, and I stopped really following it.  Later in late 2013, when I didn’t have much to do I picked up X and Y.  I then spent a lot of my time collecting all the Pokemon out and have continued this into Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon along with Pokemon Go.  I’ll probably talk about what’s happening on PoGo on here as well with the release of Celebi and hopefully Smeargle next week along with the Regirock’s introduction to raid that happened today.

I’ve been rereading the fanfiction ‘Black Sky’ by the author Umei no Mei on Fanfiction.net for the last few days.  Here is a link to the story – http://www.fanfiction.net/s/10727911/1/.  It is an interesting crossover story between Harry Potter and Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn (KHR).  It features a female Harry and currently has 295 chapters, but the author is on a break from the story right now.  Umei no Mei also has several other stories, so be sure to check them out if Black Sky interests you.

Black Sky is an interesting story because it starts from young female Harry’s, named Dorea, birth and has several chapters showing her growing up before she goes to Hogwarts (thankfully not at the Dursleys).  It also starts long before the start of KHR and doesn’t even mention the main character of KHR in the story until well into the 100’s.  I enjoy this story because it doesn’t let itself get caught up on following the events of the ‘Harry Potter’ series and actually wraps the main content of that series within 75 chapters.

I will freely admit that I ‘ship’ Harry and Ginny and that I enjoy reading those stories that have that as a pairing.  People can say how he belongs with someone else, such as Hermione or Luna, but I have my reasons that I can go into later if anyone is interested.  However, I am willing to read a story that does not have that as pairing as long as it keeps my interest, is well written with minimal spelling errors and being a long story helps.  Black Sky fits all those categories and more.

I’ll stop here for now, but will post again either today or tomorrow.  Thanks for Reading!

-Matt
