It’s a Death March Weekend!

Friday

Today (and most of this weekend, at least) I’ll be rereading and then catching up with the web novel I mentioned last post, Death March. I got the 43rd part of the 10th act before I started writing this post. The new chapters today are – Ashes to Flame, Tsunami, and Mauling Snarks.

There was also a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, ‘Devil Ninja’ by The Engulfing Silence. It’s a crossover between Naruto and High School DxD, where Naruto ends up in the DxD world with no chakra. He ends up at Kuoh Academy a month before the start of DxD, how will his being there change things? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9775478/1/Devil-Ninja.

Yeah, so this one does have sex and sexual situations in it. Just in case anyone doesn’t want to read that stuff (or is underage).

The extra story I’ll talk about today is one I mentioned earlier, “The Prince of Tennis” (it was when I was talking about the abundance (and variety) of sports manga/anime. The Prince of Tennis is a story by Takashi Konomi about a young tennis prodigy named Ryoma Echizen who just returned from America with his family. He ends up at Seishun Academy (it’s a middle school) and joins its strong tennis team. After beating some of his seniors, he ends up on the team’s regulars. They work together to try and get to and win the National Middle School Tennis Championship. However Ryoma also wants to get better to win against his Dad (who’s much better than him). It’s an older series, but it’s still popular. The original series ran for 42 manga volumes and had 178 episodes. It has a sequel ongoing called “New Prince of Tennis” which is about after the Nationals and onto the Worlds. I recommend this one very much.

Nothing more today, see everyone tomorrow!

Saturday

Once again, I read more Death March and got to near the middle of the 13th act at part 20. The new chapters for today were Reincarnation Roulette, Relic of the Future and Heroes Assemble! There was really nothing else today, so onto my replacement story, next paragraph!

I’ll go more in-depth for another story I mentioned about when I talked about sports, “Eyeshield 21” by Riichiro Inagaki. It’s about Sena Kobayakawa, a high school freshman at Deimon High who is a frequent gopher for bullies. His childhood friend, Mamori, protects him, but he finds it embarrassing. The only thing he has going for him is his speed. The devil captain and quarterback of the ‘American Football’ club (yeah, so looked this up and it turns out that this and football of the rest of the world have the same base sport that split when football decided to not use hands. Soccer was a slang term for “Association Football” (no hands) in Europe, but is now only used in North America. Don’t know why “Rugby Football” decided to drop ‘Rugby’, but now there are two footballs. Who knew), Hiruma sees him and tricks him into becoming the third member of the team (along with Kurita, a lineman) as the running back (they borrow members from other teams until they eventually get a full roster). To hide his identity, Sena pretends to be the manager and during the games wears a tinted Eyeshield and has the number 21 (thus Eyeshield 21). Sena gains confidence and grows as they strive to get to the Christmas Bowl. This is another oldie, but goodie. It has 37 manga volumes and 145 anime episodes.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I Love Ya, Tomorrow. You’re Only a Day Away!

Sunday

I only got to the end of part 13 of Death March today, but that’s because I reread (and caught up on) Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope that had a new chapter today. The other new chapters were from An Unseen Hunt and an omake for Taylor Varga. Once more I read nothing else new, so its time for the talk about another series!

This time is “Cross Game” a baseball series by Mitsuru Adachi, who has written several other baseball and sport series. Cross Game is about Ko Kitamura, who is a great pitcher. His childhood friend, Wakuba Tsukishima (the second daughter in the family), treats him as her boyfriend and wants him and her sister Aoba (the third daughter) to get along. Her last dream she relays to them before she dies in an accident while they’re in elementary school is for them (Ko and Aoba) to go to Koshien (the high school baseball championship) together. He eventually joins the baseball team in high school and she becomes the manager because she can’t join the team (even though she hates him, mostly). They overcome the team’s difficulties and work toward their goal of making that dream come true. It’s a sweet story, though it has a sad beginning. It has 17 volume of manga and 50 anime episodes (I really love the opening and closing themes!). I very much hope you read/watch this one.

See everyone when I post tomorrow! (also did anyone else see the new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 with part of the new opening theme! It looks and sounds great, though I’m sad we won’t be able to hear the full version unless we pre-order/get the album and even then not until it comes out on Jan 18 a week before the game comes out).

Monday

So today I got to part 20 of act 15 (the middle of it) of Death March. There are only 16 acts currently, but it (again currently) has 78 parts and an intermission. I may finish tomorrow, but I should be finished on Wednesday at the latest. The new chapters today are Mauling Snarks and How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.

There was a new chapter for a story from ack1308 called, ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ It’s a Worm fic where Danny and his wife Annette were a hitman team called Dark. They stopped after Taylor was born, but when Taylor is put in the locker and her favored dog (only in this fic) is stolen, he dons his former identity to get back the dog and get revenge for his daughter. It only had 3 chapters (and is infrequently updated), but it has an interesting beginning. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11811377/1/Are-You-Afraid-of-the-Dark.

For today’s new series, I’ll take a break from the sports and Japanese stories. “The Hardy Boys” by several people under the pen name Franklin W. Dixon is an older children’s mystery series about brothers Frank and Joe Hardy. They’re teenagers who are amateur detectives, following after their father who is also one. They usually assist their father or stumble onto something with his cases. The original series was started in 1927, but were revised in 1959 to be less racist and simpler. It ran until 2005, when “Undercover Brothers” started. That ran until 2012 and “The Hardy Boys Adventures” started in 2013. The original series has 190 books (though some only consider the first 58 to be ‘canon’). It’s a fun series for your kids, I should know I read some when I was young!

See you, my readers, when I post on Thursday!

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

Friday

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

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

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

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

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

Nothing more for today, see you tomorrow.

Saturday

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

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

Hope to have more tomorrow!

Sunday

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

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

R Rated Content

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

R Rated Content

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

Monday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for reading and see everyone on Thursday!

 

Happy Turkey Day!! (Thanksgiving)

Tuesday

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

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

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

Wednesday

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

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

This is a harem story and there are sex scenes, but because of people being people, those scenes are on his Archive of Our Own account under the same name.

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

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

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

Thursday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m Heading Out to Get Let’s Go!

Tuesday

Today, I read so more of I Am Harry Potter and Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me, but didn’t finish either one of them and read books fifteen through the start of eighteen for The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for; Service with a Smile, Another Fine Mess, and Reading Chronicles Book 1: To the Victor, The Spoils. I got Shedinja on PoGo from the Research Breakthrough this morning, but now I wish that I had waited until this afternoon because of the stupid new Sinnoh Stone. It can only be gotten from the Research Breakthrough, but it didn’t become active until this afternoon (stupid, should happen at night, but I guess it is night somewhere then).

Anyway, I read some more new sakurademonalchemist fics (new as in I haven’t read them, they have like, let me check, 246 stories). The first one was ‘Spirit of the Jewel’ and it’s a InuYasha and Natsume Yūjin-Chō (which will now be Natsume because it’s stupid to get those vowels with symbols every time. It translates out to Natsume’s Book of Friends) crossover. Not sure it I’ve ever said what Natsume is before (really need to make that list I mentioned soon), but it’s about a boy named Takashi Natsume who can see spirits. He has since he was young (He’s a teenager now) and his family switches him between themselves and thinks he’s a liar and troublemaker because of his ability. He inherits a notebook from his grandmother that she bound spirits to control them. He tries to find them and give them back their names (which are in the book).

Spirit of the Jewel has Takashi and Nyanko (a spirit who hangs out with him who wants the book, eventually) going to the Higurashi Shrine to live before the start of InuYasha. He, Nyanko and a fox spirit end up going to the past with Kagome and getting involved with her adventures. It only has four chapters (so far, but hasn’t been updated since Sept. 2016). If you want to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12152411/1/Spirit-of-the-Jewel.

The second is called ‘Arrow of Truth’ and it is a Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) and Fate/stay Night crossover. Shirou ends up declining Alaya and not becoming a Counter Guardian. He then meets Truth (from FMA) who says he is a fragment of Edwards from when he went through the Gate of Truth (Think the author was referring to original anime series). Truth then transports him (in Edward’s body) to before the Grail War and he changes things. Fine out what, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12095365/1/Arrow-of-Truth.

The last one (from this author) is ‘Beware of Sith Trolls.’ It’s a three-part story (with only two parts out since Aug. 2016) that’s a Harry Potter and Star Wars crossover (with mentions and meeting Black Wing from Fate’s Gamble by Lupine Horror). It has Vader saving a young Harry Potter (who deaged himself and his a troll) and having him become his apprentice. Chaos ensues, which can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12068640/1/Beware-of-Sith-Trolls.

I discovered that Fruits Basket is finally getting a remade anime with the whole story (YAY!). While doing that I learned of a short (unfinished) sequel about another young girl and the children of the Fruits Basket characters called “Fruits Basket Another.” I read the manga and enjoyed it, really looking forward to the finish and the new anime!

I reread a fic by kb0 called ‘A Friend Indeed.’ It’s a six-chapter story about what would have happened if Ginny would have tried harder to be Harry’s friend after his name comes out the Goblet of Fire. Things change, but most of it’s for the better, right? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3822327/1/A-Friend-Indeed.

I also got a new chapter for a story called ‘The Lady of the Flies’ by InsanityIncarnate90. It’s a Worm and Highschool DxD crossover that has Rias reincarnating Taylor after the end of Worm as her Queen. Watch how this changes the DxD universe completely! Here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12586479/1/The-Lady-of-the-Flies. (Might have already talked about this one, realllly need to make that list.)

That’s it for today, see you on the next line tomorrow!

Wednesday

I finished both My Name is Harry Potter and Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me today. I also got caught up on The Gamer (my app didn’t get the new chapters until today <_>). There were also new chapters for Burning Ice, Harry Potter and the Stargate, Flames of the Night Sky, It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble! and an omake for Mauling Snarks. A Ultra Friend on PoGo gave me an Ex Raid invite today and I was finally able to catch Deoxys (yay!). I also got some Lucky Pokémon from trades today!

I started rereading a story by an author I haven’t mentioned yet, Phantom1s. It’s called ‘Harry Potter: Archangel’ and it has Harry’s accidental magic transporting him to the Flamels at a young age (to escape from the Dursleys). He grows up with them and ends up meeting Tony Stark and creating a magic Ironman suit called Archangel. He saves a going into fifth year Ginny (remember he’s not been at Hogwarts, to study at least) and things happen from there. I like this fic and the author, but feel he kind of jumps around and has pacing problems. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6989193/1/Harry-Potter-Archangel.

There was a new chapter for the fic, ‘Organization 13 and a Half’ by Glennt123. It a Kingdom Hearts story that starts before 365/2 Days. It has a sentient Dusk that is the main character who becomes a part of Organization 13. Hasn’t reached 365/2 Days yet, but it is still semi-frequently updating. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971650/1/Organization-13-and-a-Half.

Lasty, I started rereading another of kb0’s stories, ‘Harry Potter: The Avenger.’ It has Harry not wanting to stay in his world any longer and goes through the Veil (with a trunk full of things) to try and find Sirius. He ends up in New York right before it’s attacked by aliens in the first Avengers movie. He joins the defense and becomes an Avenger. It’s finished (but I still need to read a few more chapters of the seven) and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10477045/1/Harry-Potter-The-Avenger.

A rerun of last year’s Christmas event on Fate/GO started today. Looking forward to playing through it!

Nothing more today, can’t wait until the Midnight night release of the Let’s Go games tomorrow!

Thursday

I finished Harry Potter: The Avenger and read more Broken Dreams (by ThunderReborn if you’ve forgotten). The only new chapter was from Another Fine Mess. That and playing PoGo, Fate/GO and KHUx are really the only things I did today. Wow, that’s kinda sad …

Anyway, I’m writing this before I head over and get my new Let’s Go games, but I have enough time to talk about another series. This time I’ll talk about “Skip Beat” by Yoshiki Nakamura. The main character, Kyoko Mogami, went to Tokyo with her love Sho to help him while he became an Idol. But when he became famous he got rid of her and she vowed horrible revenge. She decided to get revenge on him by becoming a bigger star than him. The only problem, she left behind love and can’t muster any up to catch people’s eyes.

When she proves to have talent, the director of a company decides to make a “Love-Me” section to help her (and others eventually) find what they’re missing. Watch her work through her trials to get one over on Sho (and who’s this Ren Tsuruga?). I really enjoy this series and need to catch up on it, I’m a bit behind.

I’ll post this now before I head out. See everyone on Monday and hope people who are also getting Let’s Go enjoy it as much as I will!

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!

 

Can’t Think of a Title

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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!

Thursday

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!

New Story in a Series!

Friday

Today I didn’t read much because of the previously mentioned interview. It took up most of the morning (mostly getting there and back). I thought it went well, but I I’ll find out when I hear back from them if I got the job.

I finished off The Dark Phoenix of Konoha and read the update of Mauling Snarks. Other than that there was an update for another fic I’ve read ‘The Goblet of Fire’s Trap’ by kopakanuvafan20. It’s a crossover between Harry Potter and Negima! Magister Negi Magi.

Negima! Magister Negi Magi (hereafter just called Negima) is about 9 year old Negi Springfield who just graduated from a magic school in Wales and is given his assignment to prove he can be a Magister (The highest rank of mage). This assignment is to teach English at a Japanese All-Girls Middle school. Oh, and he can’t reveal that he has magic or he’ll be turned into an ermine (if you don’t know what that is, just look it up). When he’s a younger teacher to a class of 31 curious young girls, that’s not gonna be easy.

So it’s been a while since I read this one and I’m not going to lie, the writing style is not that great and the story kinda jumps around. Essentially, Harry learn how to become a phoenix animagus after the Chamber of Secrets, goes to learn how to be a Jedi (for like a few paragraphs) then ends up going to Mahora (the school in Negima) and metamorphs into a girl (Roselyn Evans) and goes to school there until he is pulled to England for the Triwizard Tournament. I’m not that interested in it anymore because of the writing style. You can read it, but as I’ve already warned you, be prepared to not like it much.   The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9196393/1/The-Goblet-of-Fire-s-Trap.

That’s it for today, see you tomorrow!

Saturday

I read and watched a few new stories today so be prepared! The first was a story by White Angel of Auralon called ‘Enough’. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry knows that Dumbledore and his ‘friends’ don’t have his best interests at heart and trains himself to take his NEWTs right after his OWLs. He deviates from the story by going to a summer camp after fourth year (and Dudley and his gang get kissed because Harry’s not there). There are more changes, but this is first major change to what happens. It has 4 chapters and was just started on the 1st of this month. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13052816/1/Enough.

I also read a two-part story by the same author called ‘Bolt Fashion’. In it Harry is more practical and works to gain more money from before he goes to Hogwarts. He decides to start his own Fashion line and does so his fifth year. Voldie and his minions get taken out by almost accident. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11692854/1/Bolt-Fashion.

I reread Petrification Proliferation, read more of Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock and read the new chapters of An Essence of Sliver and Steel, Relic of the Future and How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.

The next fic I reread is called ‘Aura Shinobi’ by guardsmansparky. It’s a Naruto and Pokemon crossover where Arceus saves Naruto when he tries to Summon without a contract at a young age. He sends Naruto back, but sends Lucario to train him and makes a Pokemon summoning contract for him. Sadly this author hasn’t updated any of his stories since 2015, but you never know they might come back. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9635635/1/Aura-Shinobi.

The next is a Sailor Moon story called ‘Unexpected Restart’ by Serena530. It has Serena (Usagi’s name in the english dub) wishing to restart from when she meet Darien after he dies/is captured (she doesn’t know) after the rest of her team doesn’t really care what happened to him. Her Silver Crystal grants her wish and she changes how everything happens to make it better. I like it and I’ve read other stories by this author that are good, so I recommend it. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12668566/1/Unexpected-Restart.

The last new story I read today is called ‘Underneath the Underneath’ by FlamexFullmetal.   It’s a Naruto story with a nice Kyuubi who helps him become stronger. It’s okay, I stopped reading about halfway through for now and I’ll finish it later. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7904046/1/Underneath-the-Underneath.

The last thing I did today was watch the first 3 episodes of the new anime called “Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria” or “The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar” in English. It’s a story about Yuto Suoh who takes a phone photo of himself in front of a ancient mirror that transports him to a different time where he becomes the leader of a warrior society. He wants to go back, if only to see his childhood friend that he can communicate with on his phone if he’s near his version of the mirror. This is his story.

Lastly, Umei no Mei updated Pick up the Pieces and Move On to say that starting Monday and until Friday she will post a chapter to the sequel to it (and the last on in the series) once a day. I’m looking forward to it! It’ll be on the Monday post I assume!

No more for today, see on the flip side (meaning right below this).

Sunday

Today I started rereading Ripples, I got to chapter 50, but that’s not all I read today. I read the new chapters of The Unseen Hunt and Stand Together and Smile. I also read some chapters for stories I haven’t mentioned yet.

The first is called ‘SAO: The Eroge’ by SaintInfernalNeos. It’s a Sword Art Online fic where Kirito gets the power of an eroge protagonist a little before the SAO incident. This means that girls fall in love with him and he can raise their interest points toward him. This causes massive changes this in the SAO universe. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12887197/1/SAO-The-Eroge.

The other update was from ‘Naberius Heir’ by Liam G. This author writes good stories, but none of them have finished. This one is the longest at 24 chapters (the chapters are fairly long though). This one is a Bleach and High School DxD crossover. It has Ichigo having his memories suppressed to save him from the council after the Winter War because his last linage wakes up (hint he’s from devil decent). His Great-Grandfather takes him in and has Rias (pre-story) take care of him. No one from Bleach really knows where he is, though they want to know. See how things turn out. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10023720/1/Naberius-Heir.

Other than that I watched some Youtube videos explaining some of the things that went into Homestuck. Like it being an origin story. I can post the links to them if anyone is actually interested.

Nothing else today, I’m looking forward to the new Pick up the Pieces story!

Monday

Well, first I finished off Ripples. I also read the new chapters for SeerKing’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Bugging Me, Mauling Snarks and I, Panacea. I read the other only Fairy Tail that the real narina has ‘Dreams of Dragons’. It has Acnologia helping Mavis found Fairy Tail (though things still happen with Zeref) and staying on to help it along. Her OC from Ripples is in it, but with different circumstances. It’s pretty good. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12739742/1/Dreams-of-Dragons.

The only other story I read was the one I was looking forward to, ‘Pick up the Pieces and Rebuild’ by Umei no Mei. It’s a good start where Xanxus starts setting things up leave the failing Vongola behind while saving what he can. Really looking forward to the rest of the chapters coming out this week! The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13080563/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Rebuild.

Seeing as I have not read anything else, I’ll talk about “Fruits Basket.” It’s a manga by Natsuki Takaya about a girl named Tohru Honda. She’s a high school student who attempts to live in a tent after her mother dies. She is found out and ends up living with a few members of the Sohma family, only to learn that they and several other of their family members are cursed (it’s a reoccurring one in the family) to turn into the animals of the Zodiac and the cat. This happens when they are weak or a member of the opposite sex hugs them. Follow her as she meets all of them and tries to help them while learning about herself and even falling in love.

They made an anime for it and while it starts off okay; they just kind of have a tacked on ending for it. I would love to have a reboot of it (like Fullmetal Alchemist), I don’t think it will happen. I hope you look it up!

Thanks for reading and I’ll post again on Thursday!
