I Finished Kingdom Hearts 3!

Hi friends, I’ve done it, I’ve finished Kingdom Hearts 3 today! It took 26ish hours in-between work and sleep over the last two weeks, but I’m glad I played it. The ending, wow, not completely happy with it, but I don’t hate it. It’s obviously not the end of the series (way too many things unanswered and new questions came up). I’m looking forward to the continuing story, though for now it will continue in Kingdom Hearts Union x (KHUx). In watching some of the Japanese translated story quests (they’re a bit ahead of the international version) and we learn more about some of the members of the Organization’s somebodies. I watched it on Everglow’s channel.  He has all of the story quests from KHUx and a Kingdom Hearts timeline episodes.  I have many thoughts about the KH3 story, but I’ll wait to talk about it until Monday when I have had more time to take it all in.

It didn’t read much this week because of that and work, but I did read some things. I finished rereading Harry Potter and the Stargate and reading Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life. The new chapters for this week are: Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Reality Bites Worm, Pain and Hatred: A Stray Devil’s Tale, Heroes Assemble!, Titanfall, Seerking’s Asylum, Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks, Taylor Varga (omake). I also finished my fanfiction archive with everything I’ve mentioned so far (as far as I know, I might have missed a few). Feel free to use it to find a story you like!

I read several shorter stories, but I didn’t get much as previously mentioned. The first two are from White Angel of Auralon. They’re called Older Brother and Older Brother – Tournament Trails. It’s the first and sequel of a Harry Potter story where Harry is born several years earlier. His younger brother is born around the time he would be and their grandmother and grandfather die protecting them, leaving their parents alive. It’s the story of Harry protecting his brother and his friends from Voldie and Dumbles as he goes about living his life. Both are six chapters long, but that doesn’t make them bad.

I also reread a story from sakurademonalchemist called Bonds Across Time. It’s a crossover between KHR and InuYasha where fem. Tsuna falls into another well in her hometown and ends up in the feudal era. She finds the Primo and his guardians and becomes their little sister. She eventually also meets Kagome and the crew. It’s a good story, but again it’s incomplete.

The final one is another I’m rereading called Mutant Storm by Bobmin356. It’s an X-Men and Harry Potter crossover where Harry awakens his mutant powers after learning that learning the prophesy. He learns that things aren’t as they seem and feels betrayed. Jean feels his anguish from America and goes to find him. She learns that Lily was her sister (Dumbles erased her memory of her family and her family’s memories of her when she decided to go Xavior’s school). He goes with her and has to decide, is the English wizarding world really worth saving?

One finally thing I forgot to mention last post, I saw Aquaman in theaters. It’s good and I find I enjoy the solo hero DC movies than the ones about multiple heroes together. There were classic chichés in it, but that’s normal (like the kiss in the middle of the big battle). I hope there are more better DC movies and look forward to the Marvel ones over the next few months.

That was my week in a nutshell! I’ll see you on Monday and hope you have a great weekend. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Change in the Schedule

Hello my readers (the few of you there are), it’s been yet another weekend! There have still not been any votes on my poll, so my friend’s opinion looks like it will be the only one I’ll base my decision on. My next post will be the 2-week deadline, so vote now at https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ if you want your opinion heard. I said next post because I am changing my second posting day to Friday instead of Thursday. The reason for this is because I now have a class on Thursday night and might not be able to post if I leave it for that night.

Moving on to the part of this that most people care about, I read some more Taylor Varga, Mythical Night and Harry Potter and The Daft Morons. The new chapters this weekend were: Breaking the Gilded Cage, Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks (Fri & Mon), Primordial Vortex, Relic of the Future, Less than Zero, Gun Bunny, The Unseen Hunt, Worm: More Than Meets the Eye, The Gamer and Taylor Varga (4 new connected Omakes over the past few days).

I’ll start with the new story by nordiamus, ‘Game On! 3 1.’ It’s not 4 0 because fem Tsuna doesn’t reincarnate to move to the next story because it’s in the same world as the last one. The next crossover story is Yu Yu Hakusho. Fem Tsuna comes in soon after Yusuke ‘dies’ because he will be the one to lead her to missing ‘pack mates.’ She helps him while trying to find them. There are five chapters in the story so far and I’m looking forward to more! The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13176826/1/Game-On-3-1.

So, yeah, the rest of the fanfics will be new (for me and you) sakurademonalchemist ones, again. I’ll say again, I like most of their stories, just not the fact that next to none of them are complete. The first one is called ‘Quirks’ and is a straight Naruto fic. It has Itachi creating a false identity as a female half-sister (that he found on a mission, using shadow clones at first) to annoy his father and cause problems with their marriage. He finds himself enjoying his female identity more than being Itachi. When the time comes; will he choose his new or old life? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10995473/1/Quirks.

The next one is called ‘Against the Dying of the Light’ and is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. In it, fem Harry has been forced to marry Ron after the war. She finds herself invited to the Fifth Holy Grail War and uses it as a way to break the shackles the Wizarding World placed on her. Watch as she joins the war and finds herself in between two Archers who have an interest in her. What will happen? You’ll know as soon as I do if you read it, because it hasn’t got that far in the 10 chapters. It was last updated in April 2015. You can find the story, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11161739/1/Against-the-Dying-of-the-Light.

Then the one after that was ‘Artemis Fox,’ which is a Harry Potter and X-Men crossover. It has Lily unknowingly sleeping with Wolverine and fem Harry being his child. After the events of Halloween, she is still left with the Dursleys. However, she is dumped in a forest at a young age and takes care of herself. Professor X finds her with Cerebro and she comes to live at the Academy. Watch how she changes things in the X-Men storyline, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11145015/1/Artemis-Fox.

After that was the fic ‘Sekirei Game’ a Sekirei, Harry Potter and Gamer crossover. It has fem Harry with the Gamer power being dropped off in Japan at a young age. Her power allows her to wing Sekirei, but she ignores it until an accident causes her to confirm Homura (#6) and she becomes involved in the game. Watch as she goes through the game makes changes, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11104500/1/Sekirei-Game.

Following that is the fic, ‘Jade Angel’ and it’s sequel ‘Angel Avenger,’ which is a Harry Potter and Supernatural crossover.  Jade has fem Harry being killed by Vernon after fourth year. After going to Heaven, she is thrown out because she didn’t finish the angel Zachariah’s job for him, because he didn’t want to do it. She runs away to America to be a dancer. She eventually becomes an actress and goes to Hollywood. She meets many of the Supernatural and changes things for the better. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10648742/1/Jade-Angel. The sequel has them going to the Marvel world to change things. It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10748542/1/Angel-Avenger.

Then there was ‘Mirror Magic, a Harry Potter, Magical Nanoha and D.N.Angel crossover. It has Harry being a descendant to the Niwa and Hikari (at some much later time after D N Angel). He gets earrings in the shape of a white and a black wing. Dark and Krad are able to talk to him and help him run away to Japan. There he ends up with the Takamichis. Find out how the TASB is connected to the history of the Niwas and what happens next, by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10370692/1/Mirror-Magic.

Following that is ‘Demon Bounty Hunter’ which is a crossover between Harry Potter and Supernatural. It has a Harry, who is actually Sam’s twin, who agrees to because Crowley’s bounty hunter to free him from the Death Eaters clutches after the Light abandons him because they learn he is not a Potter. He eventually finds his brothers, of course, and helps them out. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10333308/1/Demon-Bounty-Hunter

Finished with that, Yay! I went to the theater and saw “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” I really liked this movie. I found it fun how when a new ‘Spider-Person,’ they did an abbreviated origin story. This is a great example of how to introduce multiple characters in a movie and not make it feel cramped or too much. Miles Morales gets his powers and is thrown into a world that’s suddenly expanded with people who know what he’s going through. For them, their stories have been going for a while, but this is his origin story.

No matter how strange the other Spider-People are, they were all introduced in comics previously. Miles is the most recent, having only been introduced in 2016. With Peni Parker and Spider-Woman being introduced in 2014. If you’re looking for a fun movie for all ages, I would definitely recommend this one.

Well that’s it for this post folks. I’ll see you on Friday and remember vote, please!

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!

Monday, Monday

Friday

Sorry again for being late for the last post. I got the normal new chapter for Mauling Snarks along with a new one for Cambion. Other than reading some more Harry Potter and the Daft Morons, I read some new chapters for fics I haven’t mentioned before and actually read a physical book!

The first of the new chapters was for ‘Master Potter of Kamar-Taj’ by Ryuko monogatari. If I mentioned this one before, bear with me (I looked when I got the last updates and couldn’t find them mentioned on the corresponding days on the blog). It’s an Avengers and Harry Potter crossover where Harry studies under Doctor Strange before going to Hogwarts. It’s almost to the end of first year, storyline wise. I enjoy it and it updates monthly recently. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12256909/1/Master-Potter-of-Kamar-Taj.

The second fanfic I read only the first chapter, but it’s finished. It’s called ‘Second Chances are Fought For’ by fg7dragon. It’s a Naruto and Fate/Stay Night crossover that has Naruto being summoned by Rin instead of Archer (EMIYA). He changes everything. It’s a cool fic for only having 4 chapters, so I definitely suggest it. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12990444/1/Second-Chances-are-Fought-For.

fg7dragon is a good author and I would recommend them, but there are a few fics they haven’t updated in a good while. I’ll get around to them, but Naruto is a common theme between most of their fics. The link to their FF.com page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2085016/fg7dragon.

The last new chapter was from ‘Game On! 3 0’ by nordiamus. It’s the third in the Game On! Series. It’s about Harriet Potter who died sometime after becoming the Master of Death. She chooses to reincarnate several times helping heroes in order to save her mother’s soul. She at least gets a Gamer system to help her. The first fic has her in KHR. The second fic has her in Fullmetal Alchemist. The one I got several updates for today has her in InuYasha. The link to the first one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11799646/1/Game-On.

Well since I just mentioned two series I haven’t talked about yet, I’ll talk about them before I go into the book. Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) is about Edward and Alphonse Elric who are alchemists. Their mother died when they were young (and their father left before that [the story eventually explains it]) so they tried to do the forbidden and bring her back. As a reward, Ed lost a leg and an arm and Al lost his body and his soul is bonded into a suit of armor. Ed gets an automail (a fully functioning mechanical replacement) arm and leg and joins the military to find a way to recover what was taken from them. Many things happen along the way and long hidden secrets are revealed. I would very much suggest this, in its manga and second anime at least. The original FMA was okay for a while, but then diverted and I at least wasn’t a huge fan. FMA: Brotherhood was really good though.

InuYasha is about a young 1990’s high school girl, Kagome, getting dragged into a well at her home (in a shrine) and ending up in the Edo period (between 1603 and 1868, don’t know when during it). There she finds out that demons are real and that she is the reincarnation of the priestess Kikyo who died in that period over half a century ago. Kikyo was the guardian of the Shikon Jewel and it reappeared in Kagome’s body. She frees a half dog-demon InuYasha (who was sealed by Kikyo and has a history with her) to save her from another demon who wants the jewel. Soon the Jewel is shattered (by Kagome on accident) and she, InuYasha and friends they find along the way have to find all the pieces to complete the Jewel and stop others from using it for evil. Luckily, she can at least return home sometimes, though InuYasha can follow her. I recommend this one as well, both the manga and anime.

Finally, I read the first book in the Baccano! series that I mentioned last time. It’s called “The Rolling Bootlegs” and focuses on how both groups get their immortality, though not much about the first group. I was wrong last time, there are 22 books out and the 23rd is the one delayed. That’s it for today, see you on the next line!

Saturday

I read several completely new fics today, but also some new chapters. The new chapters were from Harry Potter and the Stargate, Stand Together and Smile and Relic of the Future. I also read till chapter 64 (of 84) of Harry Potter and the Daft Morons.

The first new fic was ‘Protector of the Fairies’ by Takei Daloui. It’s a Fairy Tail and Bleach crossover. It has Bleach elements built into the Fairy Tail world rather than having a character (or two) just dropped into it. It’s interesting, I haven’t finished it (I’m reading it slowly on the side) as it has 251 chapters and it’s not finished yet. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9546139/1/Protector-of-the-Fairies.

The second new story is ‘Relics of the Past’ by Cyrro. It’s Naruto fic where Iruka is from Whirlpool and takes Naruto in when he’s young. Along with a female Itachi and Sasuke, things are gonna be weird. I also haven’t finished this one because it’s 183 chapters. I’m going to be reading these with a few chapters a day, if that. The link to this fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12337052/1/Relics-of-the-Past.

The last new story is called ‘Clouds in the Sky’ by EriLenx07. It’s a crossover with Harry Potter and KHR. It has a female Harry meeting Hibari in her neighborhood after 5th year (because Vernon is in the mafia). They then spend many hours together. At least, Harriet is back at Hogwarts in the story now (the author spent too much time pre-Hogwarts in my opinion). It’s unfinished, but interesting. The story link is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12482507/1/Clouds-in-the-Sky.

Finally I read the pdf version of the second of the Baccano! light novels, “1931 – The Grand Punk Railroad – Local Episode.” By the way, the author’s name is Ryohgo Narita (I don’t think I mentioned that).

See you soon!

Sunday

There’s not much for today, though there were quite a few new chapters today. Here’s a list of them: The Unseen Hunt, It Gets Worse (this was the last chapter), The Remnant Knight, Enough (the second to last chapter) and Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers. I also finished rereading Harry Potter and the Daft Morons (I hope Sinyk gets back to it soon).

I read two chapters of Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock. However, the only other thing was the pdf of the third Baccano! light novel, “1931 – The Grand Punk Railroad – Express Episode.”

What shall I talk about in this free space? Hm, how about I talk about one of my favorite manga/animes Case Closed (in America, even though it stopped being dubbed after 6 seasons) or Detective Conan. It’s about Shinichi Kudo (I’m going with the Japanese names in English style. Why? Because I watch mostly the sub version to keep up), whose a high school detective that has helped the police solve many cases. He goes to a theme park with his not-girlfriend Ran Mori and after he solves a case there, follows some shady men. One of them catches him and forces him to take a poison that should kill him. However, it actually de-ages him to elementary school age. He eventually ends up staying with Ran and her (not very good) detective father, Kogoro Mori. Neither knows who he really is and he depends on his inventor neighbor to help him solve Kogoro’s cases for him. All while trying to find the people who did this to him to get back his body. This is no easy task, as is shown in that it’s still going after 24 years (the manga started in 1994 and isn’t finished yet). It has over 1000 chapters (though it’s on hiatus for the author’s medical treatment), over 900 episodes and over 20 movies. It must be doing something right. The animation is older at first, but gets better as the years go by. I really recommend this to anyone who is a fan of mystery shows.

Nothing more for today, post is tomorrow!

Monday

My dog kept me up again because of storms, but I slept late so I’m okay. The only new chapter (from a story I’ve already talked about) I got today was Mauling Snarks, I guess to make up for yesterday’s haul. I got a new chapter for a Seerking story (one that’s not in his normal rotation) called ‘Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right.’ It’s a Ranma ½ story that has Akane not being able to be his fiancée after a diversion in one of the events that makes it so that only Shampoo and Ukyo can marry him. This changes many things. Want to know which? Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12327523/1/Ranma-Happenstance-Gone-Right.

I also rewatched the first few episodes of Log Horizon. It’s a light novel turned anime about a lot of people playing an online game being transported into the game. The main character, Shiroe, along with his friends have to figure out how to live in this new situation while trying to figure out what happened. I like this one and have watched it several times, I hope a third season eventually comes out.

I also reread ‘The Road not Taken’ by sbmcneil. It’s a Harry Potter fic that has Sirius meeting Harry after he runs away in the third book and taking him away for the summer. It’s a short story (only 14 chapters) with Harry/Ginny. I like it and I hope you do to. If you want it, it’s here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12072766/1/The-Road-not-Taken.

I last story I started rereading today was ‘Harry and Ginny: A Love Story’ by Epeefencer. It’s a Soul Bond that happens after the Chamber. Harry is drawn to help Ginny and its discovered they have a soul bond. Forces work to help and protect them, while Dumbledore is trying to find out why his plans have gone wrong. It’s interesting and I suggest it, even if it hasn’t been updated since 2015 (the author updates some of their other fics, sometimes). The link to it is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7483183/1/Harry-and-Ginny-A-Love-Story.

I’ll call it a day and get this posted! See you on Thursday! (For real this time!)
