Today, I read the newest Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild. Things are happening and I can’t wait to see what happens! I read the new chapters of Service with a Smile, and Taylor Varga (an omake not a chapter). I also started rereading Naberius Heir that I mentioned in the last post.
The only new (to y’all) story I read was the newest chapter of ‘Celestial Worm’ by ack1308. It (like all of their stories) is a Worm fic with a crossover with a new novel series called Celestial Wars that the author helped its author (Karen Buckridge) develop. I haven’t read it, but I will eventually (most likely) read it. The fic is about an OC from the named book series who comes to the Worm Verse at some point in time (I think before the start of it because it sounds like from Danny [Taylor hasn’t shown up in the fic yet] that Taylor’s still living with him). She has lots of powers (from being celestial I assume) and helps Danny out. It’s only to chapter 3 but it looks interesting. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13037826/1/Celestial-Worm-Worm-AU-crossover.
Since I don’t have much for today, I’ll talk about the “Power Rangers” series. Yeah, I was a huge fan of the original series when I was young. I think I stopped watching sometime during Turbo. I now know that there were many problems with the actors (including low pay and bullying of the gay member of the cast [since I mentioned it, I will say I have nothing against LBGT people. I am not one, but I respect their right to like/love who they want to and I find that the background people and directors almost lead him to suicide to be despicable.]). I’m still glad the actors/actresses brought joy to those of us who watched them.
That being said, if you didn’t know, the Power Rangers series is basically a rip-off of the Japanese series “Super Sentai”. The ranger suits are from a respective Sentai series. Some of the scenes in the suits (mostly with the monsters) and all the Zord scenes are ripped-off directly from their Super Sentai counterpart and dubbed over. In fact, the ‘White’ ranger wasn’t in the Sentai series with the others from the original Power Rangers. This is why they changed Zords around the time he showed up. As far as I know this hasn’t changed into the (how many different Power Ranger series are there now anyway?) present. I know they’re at least still using same suits.
The movies however were made based on anything else (maybe not the second one, don’t know). This explains why they had another ‘origin’ for the Power Ranger ‘ninja’ powers after the first movie in the series (and why the Zords and suits look different).
One last thing, Tommy Oliver has had the most ‘color’ changes of any other character. Green and White in the original series, Red in Zeo and Turbo and Black in Dino Thunder. Also cameos in Wild Force, S.P.D, Super Megaforce and Super Ninja Steel. Did you know that in real life his actor, Jason David Frank, is an undefeated professional mixed martial artist with his own gym and his own martial art called ‘Toso Kune Do”? He’s even in the World Karate Union Hall of Fame. He made quite a life for himself, that’s for sure.
Anyway after that longer than expect rant (that didn’t even talk about what the Power Rangers is even about. Whatever, look it up if you don’t know), there’s nothing else for today. Look down for tomorrow.
There were quite a few new chapters that came out today: Pick Up the Piece and Rebuild (of course), Cambion, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, Heroes Assemble!, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There, A Worthless Quirk, Go Away I’m Watching Porn and an interlude for Mauling Snarks. And those are just the ones that I’ve mentioned before! Also I finished rereading Naberius Heir.
A new chapter for the story called ‘Readin Jaune Ryu-Long:Dragon contractor’ by dirtrevor. It is a reading story for the RWBY story with the same name (without the ‘reading’) by azdrgn (the author I’m betaing for, I got a new chapter for History’s Strongest Disciple Again? I’m gonna edit soon. He doesn’t put it up until later so I take my time reading it first before I edit it to get its flow). I’m sure I’ll talk about that one later, so I’ll leaving talking about it until then. It has RWBY, JNPR, and some of the teachers reading it. The author (who’s in the story) gives them the items and powers they get in the story they’re reading. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12736548/1/Reading-Jaune-Ryu-Long-Dragon-contractor.
The next new chapter was this week’s story update for Seerking called ‘Naruto: The Game of Life’. It’s a Naruto and The Gamer crossover with Naruto getting the Gamer power right before his last year of the academy. This changes many things (also it’s a harem fic, so if you don’t like, don’t read). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973590/1/Naruto-The-Game-of-Life.
The last new chapter was for the story ‘A Crushing Revolution’ by Lunar-L. It’s a Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir story that has Adrian learning that Marinette has a crush on him (from her alter ego no less). This changes his worldview as he starts paying more to her. Where is the link? Why it’s here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12300409/1/A-Crushing-Revelation.
I also started reading the newest story from sakurademonalchemist (again, not finishing any of their other fics) called ‘Queen of the Seas’. It’s a crossover between Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn and One Piece. Essentially, KHR characters have been reborn (lol) as One Piece characters (including a female Luffy because Tsuna was a female in their past life). Xanxus is Ace, Dino is Sabo and those are the only characters we’ve meet that’ve been reborn (I like saying that don’t I?). There are only two chapters so far, but it looks interesting. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13081098/1/Queen-of-the-Seas.
That’s all for today folks, tomorrow’s only a line away!
I realized that I haven’t given y’all an update on my Celebi quest on PoGo in a while. I’m up to 30/40 of grass and psychic types on the last quest. Tomorrow I should be able to finish it with the psychic types being more available starting tomorrow afternoon (which is totally not a way to try and get trainers to get to this quest to make it easier).
In other news, I was sadly wrong and Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild is not done and today was the last update until they finish it. It was a great ending to the (I assume) halfway point, so I guess I can wait. Don’t know when that will be though. The only new chapters were from GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Queen of the Seas.
Anyway, I started rereading one of sakurademonalchemist’s stories, ‘Mists of a Dawning Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Harry Potter crossover where Harry is female and becomes Viper after the war. It’s about her life before and after the Arcabaleno curse. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12455171/1/Mists-of-a-Dawning-Sky.
I also reread two connected stories by White Angel of Auralon called ‘Screw Them!’ and ‘We’re Screwed’. In Screw Them, Harry leaves Hogwarts after a much worse aftermath to the school learning he’s a parselmouth. His leaving changes many things and leads to him helping the ‘muggle’ government in taking down Voldie and his Death Eaters along with starting a new school to help teach ‘muggleborns’. We’re Screwed is about the Wizarding World finding out about the new school and the shit storm brought on them by the Queen and the British Government. The link to Screw Them! is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10322302/1/Screw-Them. And the Link to We’re Screwed is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10533939/1/We-re-Screwed.
Finally I started rereading a story called ‘Legion’ by NeverTooOld. It’s a Worm fic where Taylor has a much worse experience in the ‘Locker’ and eventually has to be healed extensively by Amy (Panacea). This leads to their friendship and more (Yes, it is a lesbian Skitter/Panacea fic. Don’t like, don’t read). Many things change. Sadly I don’t know if the author is writing anymore (or even with us anymore, I remember reading about some hospital visits [praying for you NeverTooOld] and he hasn’t responded to comments since January). It has 24 chapter and I look for to it (maybe) continuing. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11415619/1/Legion.
That’s it for this post. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!
