One Year Anniversary of the Blog!

Hello readers!  As you could tell from the title of this post, today is the one year anniversary of my blog!  Thanks for everyone’s support over this year!  So much has happened, both with the blog and my life since then.  I’ll make it nice and long post for everyone today!

The HP: Wizard’s Unite app is having an event for the next few days in preparation for the start of Hogwarts (Sept 1st if you didn’t know).  You’ll be able to find a student from each of the houses to save out in the wild and following the event tasks and getting 5 Portkeys you’ll be able to get everything (it’s not hard, I just have the Portkeys left myself).  Also tomorrow is the Shiny Suicune event on PoGo.  For three hours all gyms will have Suicune and there’ll be a Shiny chance!

This week was mostly rereading stories that I’ll talk about later, but I did reread a little of Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, The Unseen Hunt, Compass of thy Soul (Mon & Thurs), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Celestial Worm, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor, Trail by Fire, Short Story Drabbles, New Beginnings & Famiglia Drabbles.

First, I’ll talk about a web novel, that’s now a light novel I’ve been reading called ‘I Said Make My Abilities Average!’  It’s about a genius recent high school graduate who died saving a young girl from being killed by ‘Trunk-kun’ (lol, it seems many isekai (transported other world) stories happen because of a trunk and now it’s a meme).  God allows her to be reincarnated with her memories because the girl she saved will help humanity later in life.  She asks for her abilities to be average because she received too much attention and sadness for being a genius.  Needless to say, God averaged everything from all races, not just humanity… Thus began Mile’s (her new name from a little while in) amusingly ‘average’ life.  It’s fun and will be animated soon!

I started reading Mirrored Dimensions as part of the Myrddin de Celestis Quest.  It’s a rewrite of Burst Realities with Stephanie from Skulduggery Pleasant series as his main girl instead of Ginny.  It’s okay, but pretty much the same as before.

I also read more (recently, not just this week) from White Angel of Auralon.  How Harry Turned Hogwarts Around is a Harry Potter fic where Harry goes back in time to make things better.  He gets a mastery in Potions and becomes the potion professor instead of Snape.  Things are changed, but it’s kinda bland.

Liliko is a one-shot Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  Kushina is taken from her deathbed and dragged into past and deaged.  She’s forced in to the role of Lily Evans and eventually forced to marry James.  This is her story about trying to escape and return home.

Overheard Conversations is Harry Potter fic.  It’s a two-chapter year one fic where Harry overhears McGonagall and Flitwick talking about how he’s not trying hard enough and living up to his parents.  He takes this to heart and decides to change.

The Witches Conspiracy is another Harry Potter fic.  In it four women (Longbottom, McGonagall, Sprout and Figg) decide to help Harry before he goes to Hogwarts.  They invite him to an specialty school after his first report card.  He goes to school with Nevile and eventually others.  It goes through first year and is really interesting.

I also read some interesting Worm fics – Exodus is a Worm and Big Hero 6 crossover by Zaru.  Taylor at the end of Worm is cast into the realm where Hiro and Baymax are saving Calhan’s daughter.  They bring her back and she eventually recovers.  She joins them and things get interesting.  Yep, people start to trigger…

Taylor Hebert, magical girl at your service is a Worm fic with magical girl elements by Aurora Moon.  The ‘light’ Gods decide to help Earth win and infiltrate the Queen Administrator shard and make Taylor a magical girl while at camp.  It’s not far in and Taylor doesn’t really trust her animal guide, but it looks fun!

Jurassic Tinker is a Worm and Jurassic Park crossover by Geno515.  A DNA tinker Taylor ends up on another Earth be for Zion shows up.  She decides to help Hammond create his Jurassic Park.  When people start to trigger, she helps those she can.

Taking Control is a Harry Potter fic by fake a smile.  It’s a complete fic where Sirius helps Harry in his dreams to take control of his life after fifth year.  It’s a Harry/Ginny fic and Ron and Hermione aren’t their greatest selves in this fic.  Has slightly OP Harry, but not overly so.

Free Life is the sequel to Taking Control.  He’s taken control and now he’s free from Dumbledore, but Voldie is still around.  It was interesting but hasn’t been updated since 2011.  Sad since I read it long ago and was hoping for more.

I hadn’t mentioned it before, but I’m a singer.  I haven’t done much with it, but I went to a meeting of a barber shop quartet chorus this week.  It looks to be interesting.  Would y’all be interested in hearing me sing?  Leave a comment with a yay or nay.  If people are interested, I’ll see what I can do.

That’s all for this week.  Thanks again for a great year!  See you next week and as always May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

The Quest and Honestly Harry (With a Little Marvel)

Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday once again and you know what that means, another post. I saw Captain Marvel over the weekend and will talk about it next post. There will most likely be a spoiler warning for it, just so everyone knows. I continued my newest quest and I think I’ve now reread all of the fics I’ve already read from them now. I also finally finished rereading Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock and started rereading The Greatest Prank (for amusement value). The new chapters this weekend are: Black Sky, Worm – Justice For All, Relic of the Future, Headstart, Worm: More Than Meets the Eye, A Ninja Summoned, Service With a Smile, Mauling Snarks, Melody of Fire and SAO: The Eroge.

I’ll cover the only non-quest story first, Honestly Harry – The Founders Chambers by Captain Compass. It’s the third in the series and covers the second year of this Harry and his hug-buddies. Watch as he tries to find all the Founder’s Chambers while students are being attacked. And why has Ginny forgot all about the other two?

Moving on the sakurademonalchemist quest stories, the first one that was reread was – Raptor. It’s a Jurassic Park/World and Harry Potter crossover. Hagrid’s dragon egg wasn’t one at all, it was a velociraptor that becomes attached to Harry (the only one to realize what it is). It bonds with him as a familiar and when he tries to find out where it came from, he finds out about John Hammond. He helps fund the park and make it safer (set a few years before the first movie). How will a dino-happy Harry change things?

Next is Bruja, a Harry Potter and Avengers crossover. It has fem Harry becoming Hel’s chosen after the final battle. Rather than let the sheep Ministry try to control her, she asks Hel to lock her in her animagus form, a cat. After wondering around for a while, she runs into Bruce Banner and becomes his pet. It’s not until S.H.E.I.L.D. comes looking for him that anyone realizes she’s anything more than a smart cat. What will happen next?

Then there was Reaping the Cards, a Bleach and Yu-Gi-Oh! crossover. Ichigo is sent to Domino City for school after the Winter War because his school is damaged in the war. There he meets Seto, Yugi and gang. After seeing the battle between Yami Yugi and Seto over the Yugi’s grandpa’s Blue-Eyes White Dragon (Ichigo saves it), he knows something weird is going on. How will the powerless Ichigo set things on a different track?

The last of the reread stories was FateConfusion! It’s the sequel to Naruto Emiya and is a Fate/Stay Night, Naruto and Fate/Zero crossover. It has a bored Naruto deciding to go troll the Fourth Grail War by taking the survivors from the Fifth with him to interfere. It’s fun, but only three chapters. Could have been much better. Not updated since 2014.

The first of the initial read through fics is Charm School Magic. It’s a Bleach, Lyrical Nanoha and Yu-Gi-Oh! Charmers crossover. Karin finds a device (based on Charmer’s gear) and becomes a mage a few months before the start of the both series. She trains and finds other devices for Yuzu and Orihime. Eventually, Nanoha starts and she helps Nanoha on her quest. How will mages change things? Not updated since 2013.

The second fic is Circus Surprise, a Gundam Wing and Harry Potter crossover. After fourth year, Harry runs away to the circus and ends up in the same one as Trowa. Harry gets involved with the Gundam pilots and helps them out. Warning The description says it’s a Trowa/Quatre fic, but it doesn’t get that far. Don’t like, don’t read. This and all other fics from now on (except for an exception or two) were last updated in 2012.

Third was Troubles in Time, a Harry Potter and Naruto crossover. Kushina was an adopted Uzumaki and was really a time-displaced fem Harry. When she’s about to die, a ritual by Dumbles pulls her a few years into the future into an eleven year-old body. She’s going to find her way back home, but the Shinigami asks for her help getting back the Hallows in exchange for a way to contact Konoha and her husband back. Will Hogwarts be able to handle the Red Hot-Blooded Habenaro?

Next is it’s sequel, Trails of the Fox. Kushina, her family and friends are back in the Elemental Countries, but now they have get back at those who wronged Naruto while they were gone. Will having his parents back change things? Was updated last in 2013.

Following that is three-chapter side story fic for the previously mentioned fics called Pranks and Punishments. It has three side stories from Troubles in Time and Trails of the Fox. Not very long, but amusing.

Then was Cutting Moon, Eclipsed Moon, a Bleach and Lyrical Nanoha crossover. While visiting Uminari, Ichigo finds a book that turns out to be device. When he awakens it, Time and Space Administration eventually approaches him and fixes it. It’s a fun four-chapter story, which once again I wish would continue.

There were also two new stories (I mean really?), the first is The Dragon’s Knight.  It’s a KHR, Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Apocrypha crossover.  Xansus is a magus with a family crest from his mother.  When he learns he can’t inherit, he decides to join on the Red team to get the grail and make a wish.  Watch as he summons Mordred and get started.  Only the first chapter.

Second was Flameheart, a KHR and My Hero Academia crossover.  Tsuna is thought to be quirkless, but in reality his father had his quirk sealed.  He works around his and decides not to be a victim.  However, everything changes when he learns that All Might is his grandfather!  Only the first chapter.

That’s all I’ll talk about today, I’ll see all of you on Friday. Have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
