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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Weekend for a Few Readers

So it looks like there were a few people who visited this past weekend. Thanks to those who did! Lets see if we can’t get more people to come. On to the weekend!

Friday

There were four new chapters that came out today. One for Stark Imprint, which reveals that it ‘happens’ after whatever the conclusion of the Avengers 4 movie.  The second one was for Parva Sub Ingenti and has the group going back through the Gate to Earth. The third one was of course Mauling Snarks (as usual). The last one was for a story a previously mentioned author, ack1308, called ‘It Gets Worse.’ Like most of his stories, it is based on Worm. Instead of Taylor triggering with Insect Control, she gets an unconscious power that brings bad luck to those who wish her harm or discomfort. This leads to hilarious situations and many things are solved. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11651073/1/It-Gets-Worse.

For most of the rest of the day I read Reaching for a Dream from yesterday and it’s three sequels. Reaching for a Dream is a straight Naruto fic, but at the end of it (30 chapters) they story leaves that universe. The second story is in the Justice League universe. Naruto and his wife (the Kyuubi) decide to try ‘Trolling the League.’ No, really that’s the name of the fic. It’s only 8 chapters, but it’s amusing. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10486210/1/Trolling-the-League. However, it and the other sequels will not make sense with out reading the proceeding fics.

The third in the series is called ‘Sekirei? Is that some new species of little sister?’ The two go to the Sekirei universe (as is stated in the title) so Naruto can find some little sisters (it’s a common theme, he had some in the first story as well). He ends up derailing the Sekirei plan and of course finding some little sisters. This one is 17 chapters and is amusing. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10623866/1/Sekirei-Is-that-some-new-species-of-little-sister.

The last (currently) in this series is called ‘The(questionable) burdens of leadership of a troll Emperor.’ It takes place in the Stargate universe and starts long long before the original movie. Naruto and his wife decide to make an empire for his new little sisters, starting on a distant planet and planning to take over the galaxy(ies). I didn’t finish this today, but hope to tomorrow. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10917821/1/The-questionable-burdens-of-leadership-of-a-troll-Emperor.

To be honest, I haven’t really watched any Stargate before today. So, I watched the original movie to get a feel for it. I liked it, but I could have done without a family member ruining the ending on the way to dinner.

Oh, before I end today, I remembered that with all the Quartermass fics, I forgot to write about the Seerking story that updated on Wednesday. It’s called ‘Campione of the Raging Tides’ and is (obviously) set in the Campione universe. It has the eighth Campione being born, an OC (Original Character) named Jean Campbell. It shows her (re)birth and actions after becoming a Campione. It’s really good, but it’s a yuri(girl with girl) fic. Like I continue to say, Don’t Like, Don’t Read. So many problems could be solved that way. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973601/1/Campione-of-the-Raging-Tides. See you tomorrow (NOW!).

Saturday

Not really much to say today. I finished The(questionable) burdens of leadership of a troll Emperor and read more of Becoming a Man among Men. The new story I read is called ‘Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope. This is a My Hero Academia and Dragon Ball series crossover (though the author doesn’t label it that way). It has Deku finding his quirk? (This is unknown, it might be he just awakened his heritage as a Sayian. It’s unclear.) while also getting One for All. Watch as he combines them and takes the world by storm. The fic link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12964339/1/Deku-The-Golden-Saiyan-Hero-of-Hope.

Since I mentioned the Dragon Ball series, I might as well go a little bit in depth on it for those who don’t know. The Dragon Ball series’ main character is Goku Son (or Son Goku in Japanese naming with the last name first). Goku is a Saiyan. Saiyans are a species of human like aliens who look human with a tail that can transform into an uncontrollable giant ape during the full moon. They were a mercenary group that took over planets and sold them. Goku was sent to Earth as a baby to destroy it, but an accident erases this instinct.

When he is 11 or 12, a girl named Bulma comes to his mountain home looking for a Dragon Ball. They are a set of seven golden balls with 1-7 stars on them that grant a wish to the one who gathers them. This sets them on journey that leads to many friends and enemies. His journey until he turns 18 (and gets married) happens in Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball Z continues his story and his son Gohan’s as well. There are many movies, specials and games along with newer series Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Heroes. If you want to watch everything, it will take a long time.

Other than that, today was the day that Moltres was available for three hours in raids (PoGo). I went out and got the shiny version (YAY), but right after that the game went buggy and after waiting a while I get went home. I got what I wanted; I don’t need more than one. On to tomorrow!

Sunday

Today had some more new chapters for stories, though they’re all Quartermass ones. The fics were Warlock, Parva Sub Ingenti and Plenipotent Player Prince. I also read a new fic from him called ‘Revenant.’ It’s a Harry Potter and X-Men crossover. After things go wrong and most of his friends die at his & Ginny’s wedding (He does, but Master of Death), Harry takes revenge as is put through the veil, ending up in the Xavier home a few years before the First Class movie. He joins the cast, but how will he change things?   The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12965213/1/Revenant.

I started, but didn’t read much of, ‘One Punch Man: A tad different’ by CrimsonSZ. One Punch Man is about a man called Saitama who trained to be a hero for fun to fight against monsters. However, he is so powerful, one punch is all it takes to kill his enemies. In this fic instead of being ignored by the Hero’s Association, he meets the number 2 hero, Tatsumaki, during the first episode. It’s a bit hard to read, maybe just because of the writing style, but I’ll do my best to finish it. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12725971/1/One-Punch-Man-A-tad-different.

I also read the fic, ‘Reincarnation Roulette’ by Nemesis13. It’s a Code Geass fic with Lelouch having been reincarnated millions of times. This one has him as female and is during the Japanese invasion. Things are very different. It only has 6 chapters, but I’m looking forward to more. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12746654/1/Reincarnation-Roulette.

The last story for today is ‘Remnant’s Maelstrom Shinobi’ by MothBallz. It’s a Naruto and RWBY crossover with Naruto being sent a long time into the future to save him. The future is the RWBY universe. Watch as Naruto adapts and learns what happened to the shinobi world. (doesn’t have very many Naruto characters, mostly referenced). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10788245/1/Remnant-s-Maelstrom-Shinobi.

So you tomorrow, when I post this!

Monday

I started off reading some more of The Remnant Knight and One Punch Man: A tad different, but haven’t finished rereading them yet. There were some more new chapters: Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Buggin Me, Mauling Snarks, Parva Sub Ingenti and Plenipotent Player Prince.

Then I read a new fic (for me) called ‘The Healing Touch’ by xpegasus. It is a My Hero Academia fic that has Deku finding that he does have a quirk that allows him to heal himself and others when he meets All Might. It’s interesting. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12915297/1/The-Healing-Touch.

I started reading another My Hero Academia fic named ‘Headstart’ by Kamil the Awesome. It has All Might finding Deku 4 years earlier and allowing him to get One for All earlier and train with it. Find out how it changes many things. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12389062/1/Headstart.

I started rereading a fic called ‘Viridescent’ by darkfire1220 that is also a My Hero Academia fic. It has Deku having a quirk, but not using it because he is afraid of other’s reactions to it. This is because it is the same as his (OC) villain father’s. It has him getting One for All, but also attracting All for One’s attention. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12659220/1/Viridescent.

I read a lot of My Hero Academia fics today, right? The last one is called ‘Prime Directive: Hero’ by awkardnaut626. It has Deku finding out he does have a quirk at 4, that allow him to analyze anything, including quirks, and use it (including other’s quirk powers). See how this changes things. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12914247/1/Prime-Directive-Hero.

The last fanfiction I read today was ‘Time and Sand’ by Scififan33.   It is a Star Wars story (yeah, I’m not going to explain this one. Look it up if you don’t know.). Luke ends up in the past before Episode I on Tatooine. He ended up there after an AU (Alternate Universe) of The Last Jedi where Luke goes with Rey to Ben. He takes in Anakin and his mother and teaches him. See how things change. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12410879/1/Time-and-Sand.

Hope more people come to the blog and see everyone on Thursday!
