The Scary Holidays

Tuesday

Today, I read a few new stories and continued The Accidental Bond. There were several new chapters for Celestial Worm, Seerking’s Asylum, Service with a Smile, and (of course) Pick up the Pieces and Rebuild. I read a few other fanfics by Arthur Hansen.

The first one was one I’d read before called ‘Stark Imprint.’ It’s an Ironman and Worm crossover that has Taylor finding a destroyed armor of Ironman and having most of Tony’s brain downloaded into her own. This happens when she’s at the summer camp and is able to get help for Emma. This changes many things and Taylor is a genius. The link can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971451/1/Stark-Imprint.

The second one was one I read for the first time called ‘Worm Who?’ It’s a Doctor Who and Worm crossover where Taylor’s mother was a Time Lady who hid herself like the Doctor with a watch from the Daleks. She never recovered her memories, but when Taylor finds the watch after her mom dies and becomes a Time Lady herself. She goes out to help people and try and fix her TARDIS. She what happens! Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9972672/1/Worm-Who.

The third (and last) one was called ‘I, RWBY.’ It’s a crossover between RWBY and Iron Man: Armored Adventures (which has a teen Tony). (Start ending announcer voice) Tony is transported to the RWBY universe and finds himself at the initiation ceremony. How will the story change with a genius inventor around? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12087771/1/I-RWBY.

The last story I started reading today is called ‘Unstoppable Force’ by Saphrae. It’s a Worm story with some elements and characters (mostly the Harvelle’s Roadhouse crew) from Supernatural, but only references to the main cast. Its main character is an OC who defeats Behemoth pre-story and is forced into the Wards. She ends up in Brockton Bay. But everything about her is a mystery, including her real name and the price she paid to take care of Behemoth. It’s a very interesting story and I haven’t caught up yet, but I’m sure I will tomorrow. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11267518/1/Unstoppable-Force.

Nothing more today, see you on the flip side!

Wednesday

Well, I thought that Pick up the Pieces and Rebuild would be finished today (because both prequels had only 8 chapters), but the last one will be tomorrow. In order to make sure I remembered everything, I reread the story today to be sure. I also read some more The Accidental Bond and finished off to the current chapter of Unstoppable Force (which sadly hasn’t been updated in over a year). There were also new chapters for Queen of the Seas (two chapters), Raptor of the 20th Ward, and Heroes Assemble!

Today’s Seerking’s new chapter for the rotation was for the story ‘Issei – The Gaming Gear.’ It’s a The Gamer and High School DxD crossover that has Issei activating the Boosted Gear early along with one of the two ‘Gamer’ gears. With a threat that was not in the original story, Issei has a long road ahead of him. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11862985/1/Issei-The-Gaming-Gear.

I also got a new chapter for a story by Kenichi618 called ‘Less Than Zero.’ It’s an OC character in Gotham city (DC universe not the TV show). He’s down on his luck and finds out he can use a suit that his late parents made to make his life better (through stealing). Null (as he is eventually called) isn’t really a villain, but he isn’t really a hero either. Find out what happens in his story by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10362076/1/Less-Than-Zero.

The next new story is called ‘Vitiate’ by Arthur Hansen. It’s a RWBY and real world crossover that has Team RWBY following Salem to our world. The bad thing, Salem brought the Grim too. It has three chapters and hasn’t been updated in over a year, but maybe it will be soon (hopefully). Find out what happens when this happens here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12148501/1/Vitiate

Finally, I started reading a kb0 fic I haven’t read before called ‘The Grass is Always Greener.’ It’s a Harry Potter fic where Harry saves Daphne Greengrass from being assaulted in 6th year and she teaches him Occlumency in return. Things change between them. See how this works out at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4334542/1/The-Grass-Is-Always-Greener.

Happy Halloween and see everyone when I post tomorrow!

Thursday

Happy All Saints Day! Today I finished The Grass is Always Greener, read more The Accidental Bond, read the last chapter of Pick Up the Piece and Rebuild (but still no information on Black Sky, which makes me said) and reread Starting Over. There were also new chapters for Broken Dreams, Queen of the Seas, Cambion and Dreams of Dragons.

There was a new chapter for a story by ThunderReborn called ‘Konsō.’ It’s a Bleach story where Ichigo doesn’t get his powers back and dies after a full life (though with no wife and raising the kids of his family and friends). He decides to pretend to be someone else and finds that no one knows the truth of the Winter War in the academy, how will he change things? There is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13020484/1/Kons%C5%8D.

There was also a new story (just posted yesterday) called ‘Burning Ice’ by MoonRaven1412. It’s a self-insert (SI) story that has the SI character thinks she’s in the Harry Potter universe when she’s really in the Black Sky universe. Starts several years before Dorea is born. It’s a KHR and Harry Potter crossover because that’s what Black Sky is. It looks interesting and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13107911/1/Burning-Ice.

I decided to reread a one-shot called ‘The Board’ by Clell65619. It’s about several Hogwarts recent graduates taking their seats on the Board of Governors after the War (Not Harry) and how they change things based on their experiences at school.   The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6326956/1/The-Board.

I also read the first four chapters for a new Quatermass fic (just posted today) called ‘Another Fine Mess.’ It’s another Harry Potter and GATE crossover that has Harry going to Japan to meet his second cousin (Mari Kurokawa) who sets him up on a date with Shino Kuribayashi on the day the GATE appears. They help defend the people and Harry gets sent along with them through the GATE. It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13108910/1/Another-Fine-Mess.

Lastly, the real narina posted a new story today called ‘Tsunami.’ It’s a Fairy Tail and Avengers story that has a future version of their Ripples characters dying and getting the chance to go to the Avengers universe. I’m looking forward to more chapters! Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13104348/1/Tsunami.

Have a great weekend and see everyone on Monday!

 

Weekend of Stories (and Homestuck)

Friday

So, I’ve reached somewhere in Act 6: Act 2 of Homestuck (there are apparently 6 Acts in Act 6, go figure).   I’m on page 4929. And we have more new characters! Like 12 new troll characters (if I’m reading into this correctly, though I don’t know how many are actually important at this point) and two unknowns. Moving on from the weird story I can’t stop reading; I did read other things!

I read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks. The story I’m betaing for, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, put the newest chapter out today. I finished rereading No Need for Harry and read some more of The Accidental Animagus. I read the newest chapter of Parva Sub Ingenti by Quatermass and learned of their new one, which I read.

It’s called ‘GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There,’ and it’s a GATE and Star Wars Crossover. Essentially, Anakin crash lands on the world on the other side of the Gate around the beginning of the story (not too long before Episode II for him). He becoming involved in events there and it changes both his and the story’s fate. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13070510/1/GATE-Thus-the-Chosen-One-Fought-There.

azndrgn, the author I beta for, also updated another one of his stories – ‘Mending the Knots.’ Which is another RWBY one where Jaune doesn’t get into Beacon and starts a business. However, this one is a massage parlor instead of a café. It’s amusing and is now 14 chapters long. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12764610/1/Mending-the-Knots.

He also started a new story called, ‘How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.’ It’s a My Hero Academia story with a very slight One Piece (I’ll talk about One Piece eventually) crossover. Izuku (the main character who’s Hero name is Deku) gets Luffy’s powers (the upsides and the downsides) after being forcefed a strange fruit. Watch how this changes things. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13071837/1/How-Eating-a-Strange-Fruit-Gave-Me-My-Quirk.

Lastly, but not leastly (I’m aware it’s not a word, but I wanted it to be that way), I started rereading the first story in the ‘Honestly Harry’ series by Captain Compass. It’s called ‘Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts.’ It has Hagrid taking Harry to Hogwarts instead of staying in the hut when he tells him he’s a wizard. Many things change because of this. This is a soul bond story and is up to seventh story and the fourth year (seventh because before first year, after second year and after third year have their own stories). Getting to Hogwarts has 80 chapters (they aren’t that long though). None of the others have that many chapters, but the chapters get longer. It’s a good story, but not a frequent updater. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6950954/1/Honestly-Harry-Getting-to-Hogwarts.

I was able to walk for PoGo today and was able to hatch both a Kangaskhan and a Mr. Mime. YAY! Thus my Gen 1 Pokédex was finished. I’m still working on the Celebi Quests (the 7 day thing doesn’t finish until Monday), but other than the one that hasn’t been released I have all of Gen 2 as well. Just missing the regionals for Gen 3 (along with the unreleased ones). It’s community day tomorrow for the Chikorita shiny, hope that goes well! See you tomorrow, right below this!

Saturday

Sigh. Today was both good and bad. So, I don’t think I’ve mentioned that I have a dog. She’s a longhaired Chihuahua. I love her a lot, but she doesn’t like storms at all. It was just my luck that it stormed heavily last night. She stays in my room at night and insisted on waking me up periodically to comfort her. I gave up on going back to sleep at 6, but then the storm ended. I’ve been a bit tired all day though.

Moving on, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Plenipotent Player Prince put out new chapters today and I read some more Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts. I also got an update for a reading story by yukicrewger called ‘Reading Chronicles Book 1: To The Victor, the Spoils.’ It has Naruto characters reading the fanfiction ‘Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils’ by Seerking. It’s the one that will be updated this coming Wednesday, so I’ll talk about it then. It’s amusing, but more complicated that I think it should be (the reading story not the original). The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11815425/1/Reading-Chronicles-Book-1-To-the-Victor-the-Spoils.

I watched some episodes of Skyward Wing playing Kingdom Hearts – Re:Coded and read some more of Ginny Returns. I was out for all three hours of the PoGo community day and got 9 shinnies. There was also this thing with an unknown Pokémon after the event that turned mostly into dittos after they were caught (I got a few ones that were chikoritas). I think it was teaser for the new Pokémon that’s going to be able to be gifted to PoGo from the Let’s Go games.

I’ve gotten to page 5263 of Homestuck. I’m on Act 6 Intermission 3, so far intermissions two and three are mini-games that I’ve watched someone else play instead of doing it myself. They mostly deal with introducing said 12 new trolls I mentioned yesterday and their history. To be honest, I think my projection that they would mostly be minor characters is mostly likely true.

That’s it for today! Maybe Homestuck will move onto the regular plot soon.

Sunday

Today was a very one story intensive one. I read some more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and Ginny Returns, but it was mostly Homestuck. After another intermission or two like the previous ones, the story finally got to when all the main characters are together. Only for the situation to go to crap in several ways and then for another character to go off the rails to fix it (which where I am now). I got to page 6553. I’m not sure how long it will take for me to finish it, but things are very interesting now and there are more short pages. I’m thinking of doing something with the information I’ve gotten from this story when I finish it, but don’t know what it will be.

In the absence of other reading material, I figure I should talk about One Piece. One Piece is the story about Luffy D. Monkey (in the English style). He wants to become King of the Pirates by finding One Piece where the former King left his treasure.

Luffy has become a rubber man (meaning his body is made of rubber) because he ate a Devil Fruit. Those who eat one get powers, but can never swim again and being in water depowers them. The story starts as he begins his journey to find a crew (and an actual boat). There are over 850 episodes out in Japan and the manga is still going. The English version, isn’t that good (at least at the beginning, didn’t watch much after that) and the dubbed song sucked.

No more today, maybe there will be more tomorrow!

Monday

SO! I finished Homestuck! All 8130 freaking pages. The main bit of the final fights was a 17ish min video. I think I learned something from this, but I can’t honestly tell you what that is yet. It’s freeing, but also a bit sad to be finished. There were some unanswered questions, but nothing that was too bad and a bit of mystery to an ending is never a bad thing.

I went back to my old posts to see when I started reading Homestuck and it was Tuesday the 4th of this month. Today is the 24th, so I read it in 20 days. That might as well be mostly like 14 days because I don’t think I read it much for the first week after I found it. Wow, that’s a lot even for me, especially these last few days. I would not suggest this story unless you plan to only read it sporadically or have a lot of time (and patience). There are at least 50 characters you have to pay attention to by the end (including dead copies from other timelines) and there is a lot of time ‘shenanigans’ as they call it. That’s not including the author deciding to have his own moment in the story with his own side story (including weird things dealing with the fourth wall being an actual wall [or window]?).

But enough about that, I read more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and finished Ginny’s Return. I read the new chapters for: It Gets Worse, Warlock, Cambion, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Mauling Snarks. I also reread two one-shots by kb0.

The first is called ‘Who Did It?’ It has Harry refusing that he should be in the tournament and working to solve who put him in it. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12888787/1/Who-Did-It. The second one is called “Hogwarts Protection System.” In it Hogwarts has a protection system and it activates when too many things threatening students come into the school on the night of Harry’s sorting. The Aurors are called (by the Sorting Hat), many things come out and several problems are solved or at least the process is started. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12488670/1/Hogwarts-Protection-System.

I also finished the sixth set of quests for the Celebi quest. I finished two of the seventh set, the Gold Gen 2 medal and the excellent curve ball. I only got one grass for the 40 grass or psychic type Pokémon, which sucks. Hope I finish it soon (wish I had this one during the community day).

See you all on Thursday and I hope that my ramblings help someone!

 

No One for a Week!

Wow, nobody’s even visited the site since last Thursday. I’m sad to realize this, but maybe I need to advertise more. If someone has suggestions or thinks I’m doing something wrong, please tell me. Or if you want to be read something and give my thoughts on it, let me know and I’ll get around to it.

Tuesday

So to finish yesterday’s new fanfictions (they’re all still Quatermass’ stories), the first is ‘Separated at Birth’. It’s a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover happening after the events of the HP books. It’s revealed that Harry is not really a Potter (causing Ginny and most people to leave him), but was really stolen from another universe to become the Boy Who Lived. Taking few people with him (Hermione, Luna and George) he gets Zelretch’s help to go to meet his now younger twin sister, Rin Tohsaka a year or so before the Grail War. Watch as his presence changes many things. It has 22 chapters and is ongoing. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12817778/1/Separated-at-Birth.

The last one from yesterday was, ‘Plenipotent Player Prince.’ It’s a crossover between Code Geass and Overlord. Overlord is a light novel/anime about a guy who stays logged in on a VR game on its last day until the servers shut down. When it happens, he and the NPCs in his guild’s base are transported to a new world (including a succubus he changed to description to love him). Now a real life lich, he and the now alive NPCs take this world by storm after he takes the guild’s name as his own, Ainz Ooal Gown. In the fic, instead of being transported to a new world, most the characters a reborn as Code Geass characters, with Ainz Ooal Gown being Lelouch. See how this changes things. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13001843/1/Plenipotent-Player-Prince.

Moving on to today, I have more Qautermass fics (Yay). No really, they’re good. The first for today was, ‘Gorgon and Thanatos’. It’s another Harry Potter and Fate/Zero Crossover (the author has a few). It has things going wrong again after the books and Harry going to be a guardian of a hidden library in Fuyuki a few years before the Fourth Grail War. He isn’t a participant, but ends up accidentally have a Heroic Spirit of his own as a familiar. The war is much different because of it. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12299723/1/Gorgon-and-Thanatos.

Next is ‘Parva Sub Ingenti’. It means, ‘The small under the huge’ and it’s a crossover between Harry Potter (surpise!) and “Gate: Thus the JDF Fought There”. Gate is a story about a Gate to a medieval magical world appearing in Japan and an army coming through to attack. The attack is eventually repelled and the JDF (Japanese Defense Force) is sent through to find out about this new world and get reparations. One soldier is Itami (an otaku who happened to be there when the attack happened and helped save people). He leads a group to map this new world and help as many pretty girls as possible and have them follow him around. Also, there’s a huge dragon!

The fic has Harry, Hermione and Luna going through the veil (which leads to the world on the other side of the Gate) several years before the Gate would open. Harry ends up saving someone who would become a villain in the original story and living his life there. See how this massively changes the story. Also Sirius is still alive. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13041939/1/Parva-Sub-Ingenti.

Following is ‘Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell’. It’s a crossover between Thor and Fate/Zero that has Loki becoming the master of Caster (Medea) in the Fourth Grail War after being saved by Zelretch (this is after the events of the movie Thor, before he meets Thanos). He uses this as a way to work through his frustrations about his family and learn more about himself. It’s finished and the author plans to make a sequel at a later time.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12190704/1/Light-the-Blue-Touch-Paper-and-Run-Like-Hell.

‘Cambion’ is a Harry Potter and High School DxD crossover. It has Harry as a half devil with Riser Phenex being his father. James kicks him out of the Potter family for having a different father. Harry finds out he is a devil in his fifth year from Hermione and is asked to be Rias’ betrothed instead of his father. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12928183/1/Cambion.

The last fic (for today) from Quartermass is ‘Neopolitan and the Goblet of Fire’. It is a crossover between Harry Potter and RWBY in which a female Harry is Neopolitan. During the events at the end of the 3rd season, the Goblet of Fire summons Neo back to the Harry Potter world. She then decides to take revenge on her father and Sirius (who threw her through the Veil at a young age). It’s interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12723696/1/Neopolitan-and-the-Goblet-of-Fire.

I read a few more chapters of Remnant’s Reclaimer and started rereading a RWBY fanfiction called ‘The Remnant Knight’ by Masseffect-TxS.  It has Jaune sending Pyrrha away at the end of the 3rd season and facing Cinder himself.  This reveals an ability not even he knew about in his bloodline that helps him, at a cost.  Watch as he overcomes it and sets the world on a new path. Is a harem fic.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11885368/1/The-Remnant-Knight.

Homestuck was mentioned in a fic and I went looking for it. I only got to the 27th page, but it looks … weird. It’s an MS paint adventure about, trolls, I think. I’ll get back to it later. The link to it is here – https://www.homestuck.com/.

Lastly I read a new chapter from Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies That Won’t Stop Bugging Me. For those who don’t remember, it’s a one shot/short story repository for him.

See you tomorrow.

Wednesday

I read a lot again today, so get ready! I read some more chapters of Becoming a Man Among Men. However I read more of Quartermass’ fic today… sorry going to be for a little bit more. The first one is called, ‘Wings of the Forsaken’ and is a Harry Potter and “Sekirei” crossover. Sekirei is a manga/anime about a young Japanese man who gets caught up in a contest between aliens called Sekirei who are forced to fight because of a mad man’s whims. Most of the Sekirei are beautiful girls who bond with their ‘destined one’ and fight until only one remains. Minato ‘wings’ several Sekirei and is also forced to compete. It’s interesting, but you can tell it’s a story for young men (what with all the panty shots).

Wings of the Forsaken has Harry cast out of the Potter’s for being Lupin’s son (who helped Lily overcome the love potion James has her under) after the Halloween attack. He is eventually left in Japan and is taken in by Miya. After taking over the company in charge of the Sekirei, Harry is forced back to England for the Tri-Wizard Tournament. He, his parents and Sekirei will take Britain by storm. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12494380/1/Wings-of-the-Forsaken.

The next one is called ‘Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me’. It’s a Pirates of the Caribbean movie series and Sekirei crossover that has Jack Sparrow reborn as Minato. Watch as he makes the contest very interesting (and writes his former life as books). The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510813/1/Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho-An-Ashikabi-s-Life-for-Me.

The last one from Quartermass (again today) is called ‘Warlock’. It is a Code Geass and Harry Potter crossover. It has Harry going through the veil in fifth year and ending up in the Code Geass universe. He becomes Kallen’s boyfriend and helps out their group before Zero shows up. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12995318/1/Warlock.

Another new story I read was called ‘The Black Emperor’ by Primordial Vortex. It’s a pure Code Geass fic were Lelouch is more prepared and has Milly on his side already. It is a harem fic. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290311/1/The-Black-Emperor.

I also completely reread a fic called ‘The Ash Connection’ by I am Lu. It has Ash and all his former and current traveling companions (It’s set in Black and White), rivals and friends on the run from a Team Rocket controlled Mewtwo. It involves the G-Men and it’s politics. Also has many pairings including Ash/Misty and sequel. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9103189/1/The-Ash-Connection.

See you tomorrow!

Thursday

Not that much overall read today, but again there are a few Quartermass fics. The first is ‘Disquiet’ and it is a Harry Potter and “Black Lagoon” crossover. Black Lagoon is about a shipping company who does illegal things for money who capture a Japanese salary man for a disk he is transporting. Rock, as he is later called, is abandoned to die by his company and falls in with the Lagoon company.  Watch as he, Revy (a two-handed female sharpshooter), and the rest of the crew handle their jobs and the mess that follows.  I also started rewatching the anime a few days ago to remind myself of the series, I would definitely recommend it.

In Disquiet, Harry (now Hal) is the partner of a character from later in the series, Frederica Sawyer. She (in the story) is Bellatrix’s daughter. They were thought dead by the Wizarding World (WW) after James and Sirius try to make Horcruxes from them (and says they were killed practicing dark magic). When Harry’s brother dies in his fifth year, the WW comes looking for them. Only to find them very much willing to kill anyone who comes after them with the intent to kill. It happens during the Killer Maid arc and doesn’t have much to do with the main characters of Black Lagoon. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12459701/1/Disquiet.

The other one from Quartermass today is a one-shot called ‘Coconuts?’. It’s a Fate/Stay Night – Unlimited Blade Works afterstory that has Zelretch sending Monty Python and the Holy Grail for Arturia to watch… yeah. I would not recommend for the actual King Arthur to ever watch it, as hilarious as it is. On a side note, when a friend from summer camp (when I was in high school) heard I hadn’t seen it, he recited it to me verbatim over the next few days (impressive right). I have since seen it.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12112155/1/Coconuts.

Other than a few more chapters of Becoming a Man Among Men, I read a new chapter of Parva Sub Ingeti and a new fic, ‘Reaching for a Dream’ by Noodlehammer. It is the first of a series of Naruto fics and the only one not a crossover. It has an older Naruto than the other characters normally his age and different female Kyuubi. Warning! This is an M fic for a reason. It has many Lemons in it (if you don’t know what that means, it is slang for R rated interactions between men and women). Don’t like, don’t read.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9920512/1/Reaching-for-a-Dream.

Finally, I finished adding the new characters to my own fanfiction and am looking forward to writing more to eventually post it.  Remember, I want to have at least 10 chapters from the original fanfiction in it before I post it.  That’s it for this post, long as it is (over 1900 words!). I’ll see you on Monday and hope more people at least come to the site!
