A Little Bit of Old and a Little Bit of New (Along with a Notice)

Hi, Readers!  Once again, it’s time for Matt’s ramblings and thoughts.  First things first, I might not post next week because I know I’ll be busy for the end of the week and weekend.  I might post Sunday but if not, I’ll post on the 5th.  So new thing with me, I’ve been working through a temp agency, but the company is hiring me now.  May not be a large increase in pay, but better benefits, so yay!  Mostly read more Taylor Varga (though I’m most re-caught up again), though I did start rereading Reality Bites Worm and Titanfall.  The new chapters this week are: An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, Taylor Varga (Omakes Sat & Wed), The Unseen Hunt, Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Code Geass: Lionheart of the Rebellion, Issei – The Gaming Gear, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Cambion, Game On! 3 1 (3 chaps), Email Exchange, Tsunami, Bits & Bobs, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor & Seerking’s Asylum (Ginny’s Plan updated as I was writing, and I read it).

I remembered an older series that I watched and liked, and I figured I’d mention it here.  Saint Tail is about Meimi, a girl who goes to a catholic school (In Japan? Just thought about that and now unlikely it is).  Her father’s a magician and her best friend is a nun-in-training.  There’s just one thing that makes her different from her peers, she’s the phantom thief Saint Tail, who uses magic.  When her friend (the nun) hears about a situation where Saint Tail can steal to help someone (like they were stolen from or to help them from a situation they’re trying to fix), she tells Meimi and she goes to steal it.  However, Asuka Jr. (a classmate) has sworn to catch Saint Tail.  She facilitates this by sending him warning notes (why? Because she likes him of course!).  There are 43 episodes and 7 manga volumes.

Moving on to the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 61 is Friend or Foe.  It was a one-shot Hannah Montana story.  It’s a weird story with Hannah sleeping with Lilly and Mikayla.  I don’t know much about the show, but I wasn’t impressed with the story.

Chapter 62 is Starlight Breaker (why a Nanoha reference if it’s not a Nanoha story?).  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Star Trek crossover.  All Harry wanted to do was join Starfleet, but he was stolen away by the wizarding world and forced to stay.  One day he’s going to make first contact and join Starfleet!

Chapter 63 is Harry Evans and the Daemonic Stone.  It was a ten-chapter Harry Potter story.  I read this one when it was a regular story.  In it Neville is the BWL and Harry doesn’t know he’s a Potter (never really covered this).  At Hogwarts there are 5 houses (the 5th is a muggle-born house) and Pure-bloods start at 10 not 11 like the muggle-born, along with a year of day school before that.  Harry makes friends with Ginny on the train and convince her to join the 5th house with him.  They plan to change everything!  It’s a good story and I wish it was continued.  Chapter 64 is a remake called Harry Evans and the Daemonic Mirror.  It was only two-chapters and has a different 5th house, but that’s the main difference (other than meeting the Greengrassses).

Chapter 65 is It All Ends.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto Crossover.  In it six lonely children share a connection that allows them to see each other and communicate.  Harry, Ginny, Luna, Hinata, Naruto and Sasuke look to gain power and take back their lives.  Doesn’t really get far past intros and what their current situation is.

Chapter 66 is Harry Potter and the Ancient Deities.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter and Percy Jackson crossover.  Harry is a Half-blood, and it’s written like a memoir.  Doesn’t get much past some foreshadowing and ends right before he talks about how he discovered about his powers.

Chapter 67 is Lost Fate.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter (with some Hellsing parts) story.  Harry is attacked by Vernon after fifth year and decides to leave the wizarding world behind.  He’s attacked again by Death Eaters on the Knight Bus.  He’s saved by Alucard’s daughter who decides he’ll be her mate.  That’s it, pretty much.

Chapter 68 is Duel Nephilm.  It was a four-chapter Harry Potter and Devil May Cry crossover.  Harry and his sister are born with devil’s and angel’s wings respectively.  Lily protects them from everyone until Voldie attacks.  Everyone clams his sister saved them, but Lily really overpowered him and took over his group.  Harry goes to live with ‘Aunt’ Bella who raises him.  Harry and his sister (who really dislikes their dad) meet for the first time at the World Cup.

Chapter 69 is Nine Tails.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter story.  Lily and her twin sons are saved by mother and son nine-tailed fox spirits.  Lily and Harry get the spirits sealed in them, but Dumbles decides Edward (the other twin) defeated Voldie.

Chapter 70 is Epic Chronicles.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Justice League crossover.  Harry tells the story as though chronicling it.  Harry saves Astoria Greengrass instead of Ginny from the Chamber.  He discovers his powers and eventually learns James Potter might not have been his father.  (It’s interesting why it’s Astoria and not Ginny).

Oh!  I almost forgot, the Harry Potter game from Niantic finally came out yesterday.  It’s Harry Potter: Wizard’s Unite.  It’s okay, but I honestly like Pokemon Go better.  I feel it should be better after 2 years of hype.   Just my opinion.

It’s been a good week and I’ll go and see Toy Story 4 at some point and talk about it next post.  See you next week or the week after!  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key.

A sakurademonalchemist Week (with still no votes on my poll)

Well intrepid readers (the few of you there are), there has still not been any votes on my poll.  I asked a friend her opinion and since that is the only one I’ve heard so far, if no one votes then I’ll go by her decision.  I’ll post the link again in this post in the hopes that someone will read this and vote – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.  I just started classes that happen on Thursday night and am thinking of changing my posting dates if it doesn’t work out having them on the same day.  Moving to the point of this blog, I read so more Taylor Varga.  The new chapters this week are: Reality Bites Worm, Archer, Breaking the Gilded Cage (Wed & Thurs), Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Omake), The Gamer (Webcomic), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub and GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There.

The only series I read these past few days that wasn’t Taylor Varga or a sakura(youknowtherest) fic was ‘Mythical Night’ by Myrddin le Faye (not their original screen name, but they’ve changed it several times).  It’s a Naruto and Arrow (though it’s mostly DC universe now) crossover where the Kyubi convinces Naruto that it’s better to become a ‘hero’ than to be a ninja.  Thus he becomes the ‘Arrow’ of Konoha (the recent TV series version) and soon many others join him taking the names of DC universe heroes and villains.

R Rated Content

This one has sporadic sexual scenes and a few toned down sex scenes.

R Rated Content

This fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8776052/1/Mythical-Night.

As indicated last paragraph, the rest of the fanfics are by sakurademonalchemist.  The first one is ‘Moon’s Blessing’ which is a crossover between Sailor Moon and Ouran High School Host Club.  Ouran High School Host Club is a manga turned anime about a host club a rich private high school (aka a club where girls can bewooed by good looking men for money, though this one is a rich kid version with no kissing or more).  When the scholarship student Haruhi Fujioka accidentally breaks an expensive vase she is drafted into the host club, because the club thinks she’s a guy at first.  Watch as she pretends to be a boy as she works with her friends at the host club and help them become better people, just by being around.  It’s a good anime and manga with a catchy opening theme.

The fic has Usagi being the sister of the main male character, Tamaka Sou, who has stayed at her aunts because another uncle was ‘interested’ (and not in a good way).  When said uncle passes away, Usagi transfers away to Ouran to be with her brother.  Watch as an accidental change of birth leads to large changes.  The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11232145/1/Moon-s-Blessing.

The second story was ‘Blood for Blood’ which is a Naruto and Hellsing crossover.  Hellsing is about the vampire Alucard who works with the Hellsing Organization to keep his fellow vampires in line in England.  Watch him and his newly made partner Seras (a former police woman who he had to kill during his first job and brought her back) take on all comers from vampires, to priests, to Nazis.  The manga and the second anime version (Hellsing Ultimate) are the better ones.  The originals not bad, just not as good (in my opinion).

This fic is set far in the future of Hellsing where centuries have passed.  When the ninja villages were founded Alucard went on a killing spree and he and Seras were sealed near Konoha.  When fem Naruto finds out about them early in life, she goes and releases them.  They take form as her age and join the class.  Watch as she and her new companions change the ninja world with their bloodthirsty ways, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11133925/1/Blood-for-Blood.

Next, I read “Forgotten Angel’ which is a Harry Potter, Supernatural and Constantine crossover.  Constantine is about John Constantine, a demon hunter who joins up with a police woman who is investigating her twin’s death.  Getting mixed up with angels and demons they seek to find their own peace.  It’s based on the DC Comic character.

In the fic, Harry is not slated to live much past birth, so Castiel is sent to take his place and kill Voldemort.  However, when he is hit with the killing curse, he forgets all his memories and as no-one in Heaven really cares about him he lives his life as ‘Harry.’  It follows the same sad story until it is found that ‘Harry’ can see the demons that pretend to be people.  He ends up living in a church, renamed Cas Sheilds, and the ‘younger brother of John Constantine.  Watch as this ‘Harry’ goes to Hogwarts and upsets the apple cart.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10807240/1/Forgotten-Angel.

After that it was ‘Tricksters and Gods’ and it’s sequel, ‘Pagans and Angels.’  Tricksters and Gods is a Harry Potter and MCU crossover.  After the events of the first Avengers movie, Loki is banished into human form until he is deemed worthy of returning to Asgard.  The spell goes slightly wrong and Loki ends up in Harry Potter.  After the curse on Halloween, it’s mostly Loki, with some Harry, that survives (without his memories).  Watch as Loki lives as Harry Potter and decides to not take the Magical World’s crap.  He becomes as Lawyer and drags the wizards into the 21 century.  Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10177155/1/Tricksters-and-Gods.

The second one in the series Pagans and Angels, has Harry/Loki going to the Supernatural universe to get away from Asgard and his actions to stop the Infinity Stones from falling into the hands of evil.  Follow his adventures here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10916707/1/Pagans-and-Angels.

Then there was ‘Shifting Foxes’ (the only one of the sakura fics I haven’t read before) which is a Naruto and Pokémon crossover.  It has Naruto happening after an event that shifted the planets plates and had the Pokémon disappearing for two decades.  Now only ninjas are allowed to have Pokémon.  Naruto finds an eevee when he’s young that has been experimented on that allows it to change back and forth between all of it’s evolutions except for the original three.  Watch as he and his team change the world, with some help from the Legendaries.  Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8736838/1/Shifting-Foxes.

That’s all I’ll write about for now.  See everyone next week and I hope everyone has a great weekend and votes on my poll (really, it only takes a few seconds, please)!

A Rather Short Post

Tuesday

Today I started to reread Shinobi of the High Seas and got to chapter 13. The stories that had new chapters were – Service with a Smile, It’s in the Cards, and Flames of the Night Sky. I also reread another sakurademonalchemist story.

It’s called ‘Best Served Cold’ and is a Harry Potter story with some Hellsing crossover later on. I mentioned Hellsing ealier, I think, but I didn’t talk about it. Hellsing is about Alucard (Dracula) and his newly turned servant, Seras Victoria (former cop), who serve the Hellsing Organization in taking down his own kind that threaten the world (or just England). It’s really good and there are Nazi Vampires later. The original anime is good, but the remake, Hellsing Ultimate, is better in my opinion. Be warned though, it is a bit of a gory anime.

Anyway, the story has a Harry Potter who became a Ministry Auditor (one of the most feared positions in the Ministry) coming back in time to his preHogwarts self and using his knowledge to fix things, and troll as many people as possible. It’s fun and silly, a great combination (now if only it, like so many others by this author, were finished). The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12149140/1/Best-Served-Cold.

There was a new chapter for a story called ‘Time and Sand’ by Scififan33. It’s a Star Wars story that has a Luke from a slightly different Episode 8 ending up a few years before Episode 1 on Tatooine. He meets and helps Anakin and joins the crew in Episode 1. It’s fun and is on its 8th chapter. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12410879/1/Time-and-Sand.

Other than getting Cressila from a raid on PoGo and letting people trade to my Let’s Go game to get Meltan, nothing else happened today. I’ll see everyone tomorrow!

Wednesday

Today, I read more Shinobi of the High Seas, played some Let’s Go and not much else. The new chapters today were from: Burning Ice and Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji. Once again, I’ll talk about a series I haven’t mentioned yet.

The Boxcar Children is a bit older popular children’s series. It’s about four orphaned kids who run away because they believe their grandfather to be cruel (they never meet him). They end up living in an abandoned boxcar from a train. At the end of the first book, they meet their grandfather and end up living with him. All other books have mysteries or puzzles the children need to solve.

There are now 149 books (they’re still being published), 5 Great Adventures and 21 Specials. Only the first 19 books (revised since then) are by the series creator, Gertrude Chandler Warner, before her passing (the first book was published in 1924). The rest have brought them to the current time period (though they’re still young kids, just the time period has changed), though several different authors have written them. It’s a fun series for young kids and adults alike. Read and enjoy!

See people when I post tomorrow!

Thursday

Today, again, I read more Shinobi of the High Seas. I also went to my mother’s retirement party tonight and had a fun conversation with one of her co-workers about anime and introduced them to some new ones along with my blog. I hope they enjoy the new series and eventually read this as well! The new chapters for today are – It’s in the Cards, Organization 13 and a Half and Heroes Assemble!

I reread some more sakurademonalchemist stories. The first was ‘Harmony of the Moonlit Sky’, which is a KHR and Sailor Moon crossover. When Sailor Moon learns that King Endymion destroys the Mafia for peace when she’s in the future, she decides to change things and gets in contact with her former family, Xanxus. She had gotten away by claiming to have amnesia to not get roped into Vongolia’s nonsense after his ‘icing.’ Watch how the Sailor’s lives change because of this, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12368003/1/Harmony-of-a-Moonlit-Sky.

The second one was ‘A Tale of Two Swords,’ which is a multi-crossover with Harry Potter, the Fate Series and the universe of the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I’ve read all the books about that universe (a while back though), including the Simarillion (that was fun, let me tell you). I enjoyed the series and liked the movies, though the new Hobbit movies were too drawn out in my opinion.

The story has a female Harry drawing Caliburn instead of the Sword of Gryffindor in the Chamber of Secrets and summons Mordred to help. She ends up in the Clocktower with a pranking troll (read Zelretch) that dumps them in the Hobbit. It’s fun for only 8 chapters and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13013839/1/A-Tale-of-Two-Swords.

I then read a bunch of My Hero Academia fanfics, starting with ‘A Smile on Your Face and a Song in Your Heart’ by Kreadstornham. It has a Izuku who has the quirk to hear people’s souls through music. Nobody believes him for a while or thinks it’s stupid so he has much more issues than in the original. He works to overcome this though, it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13118908/1/A-Smile-on-Your-Face-and-a-Song-in-Your-Heart.

The next one, which is by the same author, is called ‘Redemption.’ It has a universe where Izuku never met All Might and thus remained Quirkless. Grown up, he still tries to help whenever he can, which is how he meets Uravity. Things happen from there. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12991637/1/Redemption.

I then read ‘My Gamer Academia’ by All Hail Science, which is a Gamer and Academia crossover. Deku has always had the Gamer quirk, but no-one believes him. He still gets One for All, but has better control of it because of the Gamer. There are only 6 chapters currently, but it’s fun! It’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12791382/1/My-Gamer-Academia.

Lastly, I read ‘Deku, The Telekinetic Hero’ by sremiehzla. Deku has a telekinetic quirk that he uses to become a hero. He and Ochako quirks work well together, so they work as a team (it just finished the School festival arc). The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12969971/1/Deku-The-Telekinetic-Hero.

That’s all for this post, my friends! See everyone on Monday!
