After the Quest and a Change in the Posting Schedule

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn’t post on Friday, I actually forgot and didn’t really remember until Sunday (or maybe Saturday, but not until late). Thinking about it, I’ve decided that I’ll just post on Fridays, because then I won’t have to worry about staying up late to post (I have very early mornings, not that it matters this week cause I don’t have work for the rest of it cause there’s not currently much work.) Anyway, I’ve been rereading a few of sakurademonalchemist stories (mostly listening to them), but I’ve also been rereading Ichigo Awakens, Prime Directive: Hero, Gamer of the Sword and finished rereading the Pick Up the Pieces series – Rebuild. The new chapters this past week were: Devil Ninja, Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji, Viridescent, Heroes Assemble!, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Titanfall, Taylor Varga (Thurs & Sun) , Unexpected Restart, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, The Unseen Hunt, God Slaying Blade Works, Tsunami, Black Sky, Mauling Snarks (Omake on Wed, Normal on Fri & Mon), Another Soldier Reporting (Mon & Tues), Souls of the Heart and Service with a Smile.

Since the Quest is over, you’d think that I wouldn’t have much to talk about sakurademonalchemist for, right? Well they have another new story. Its called Hashtag Believing is Seeing. It’s a Rise of the Guardians story where Jack discovers that the Internet can allow him to interact with humans and raise the belief in himself. Thus when the Guardians pull him into their fight with Pitch, he’s not very happy. It’s fun and is two chapters now (started yesterday).

I’ve also been reading some of the compilation fics they have, so I’ll go over them. Kingdom Drabbles is a Kingdom Hearts compilation fic where stories with KH as one of the original stories that might eventually be continued are.   So far it’s has crossovers with Fate/Extra, Once Upon a Time, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Nanoha and KHR. They’re interesting, but the nine chapters only contain up to two chapters of the story.

Bleach Drabbles is much the same only for Bleach. It has crossovers for Hell Girl, Nanoha, Naruto, Harry Potter, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Supernatural, My Little Pony (though it’s not very Bleachy) and KHR. Only one of the stories in here has become a fic of its own, Reaping the Cards. It’s also the only one with three chapters.

The Twin Tides is a fic that just got an update that’s by Solvdrage. It’s a Naruto fic where Naruto has a female twin that looks out for him. It’s only three chapters now, but Solvdrage does good fics (though they usually update slowly). It’s only just on when they graduate, but it looks like it won’t be the same old teams!

sbmcneil posted a new one-shot just an hour ago called Of Splendour in the Grass. It’s a Harry Potter fic focused on Harry/Ginny during his fifth year. In it Harry and Ginny are sent on a ‘detention’ date to Hogsmeade by McGonagall. It’s a cute litte fic.

I forgot to mention it, but a little while back, they also posted another one-shot called A Godfather’s Love. It has Sirius never escaping and being killed when Voldemort invades Azkaban. Harry never knew about him until then and when he finds out it was kept from him, he finds his own help to stop Voldie. A sad fic, but not a bad one.

That’s it for the new stories, but I have a few more things to talk about. Next month the new Code Geass Movie, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection, is going to be in theaters. It’ll be playing in select theaters on May 5, 7 & 8. The 5th will be subbed and the 7th and 8th will be dubbed. You can buy tickets on the Funimation website – https://www.funimationfilms.com/.

I’ve also been watching a YouTuber – SarahKey play through KH3.   Why because I can and it’s interesting watching someone react to everything for the first time. Here is a link to her channel – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6TF2WuXLVgcP5TZVLuLf4A.

Thanks everyone for putting up with me. See you on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

My Thoughts on Kingdom Hearts 3

Hello friends! I finished off Mutant Storm and reread Peace through Power and Enough. I also ordered a KH3 Sora outfit hoodie and Organization 13 trench coat over the weekend. The new chapters for this weekend were: Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life, Tsunami, Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, The Unseen Hunt, Black Sky (a week of updates, YAY), Seerking’s Asylum, Ripple and Mauling Snarks.

Spoilers Start

So I said I would talk about Kingdom Hearts 3 and my thoughts on it. I enjoyed it and all the worlds were fun (though I wish I could have told Baymax that I was satisfied with my care). I heard some opinions that it was too easy and I have to agree. I mean it may just be that I’m older, but I remember having a harder time on standard mode on the earlier games. I also agree with the opinion that it is a very end heavy game because the ‘final battle’ takes a long time to go through with all the cut scenes involved.

Moving on, I’m glad everyone was brought back, but wish we knew more about Xehanort and Eraqus. It seems everything was based on a game they played kids, but they’re two of the characters we know the least about. I wasn’t happy that Sora disappeared in the ending credits, but it’s obviously leading into the next story-line. Also, Luxu and four of the five Union leaders are back. Having Xigbar being Luxu wasn’t as much as a surprise to me as The Master of Masters told him, “You’ll see,” when he was told what was in the box. This indicates that he would be around to see why whatever was in the box.

We also learned that the Dandelion union leaders (and others) found a way to get transported to the future without their memories (as indicated by Ventus, Marluxia and Larxene being in the future, but not remembering the past). Skuld is also possibly mentioned as the unknown girl that was experimented on by Ansem the Wise and the Xehanort-possessed Terra. We only don’t know about Brain and Ephemer (though he showed up [sorta] to help during the pre-final battle) and we might have met Strelitzia in the ‘Final World.’ (If this doesn’t make sense to you, it’s from the phone game, Union x and it’s prequel, x [chi] (though this one was only in Japanese and isn’t around anymore and I didn’t know it was important until after I played KH3).

Finally, what’s up with the secret ending? Do Sora and Riku end up in the Yozora world or The World Ends With You world? And it also looks like the original Union leaders and Luxu will be the enemy this time. And where is the Master of Masters and Union Leader Ava? Hopefully all will be revealed soon. Also I’ve started watching x [chi] on Everglow’s channel on YouTube.

Spoilers End

I started off reading the fanfiction Reasons why HYDRA should not use FedEx by JoyisaBike. It’s a Marvel verse story where Darcy is Tony’s half sister and ends up with a FedEx package with The Winter Soldier in it. Chaos ensues (also around the time Captain America is woken up). Read the three chapters of fun, it made me chuckle.

Next, I read Saviour of Magic by Colt01. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry escapes from Privet Drive while getting beaten by Vernon and ends up in Potter Castle. A ghost relative and the family portraits then raise him. He heads to Hogwarts smart and knowing about magic. This is a very anti-muggle story and that isn’t fully explained until much later in the story, but it almost made me stop reading at times. Still an interesting story though.

Then, I read Secret Love by White Angel of Auralon. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry and Ginny get together New Years of his 5th year, but they keep it a secret until they accidentally let it out in 6th year. They pretend it’s new and ‘break up’ at the end of the year. Watch how things are different with Ginny having a more prominent influence on Harry earlier.

I also read Muggleborn Teacher by White Angel of Auralon. Again, it’s a Harry Potter story. This time a muggle-born wizard ends up as Harry’s elementary school teacher and helps him get away from the Dursleys. A Harry raised by scorned muggle-borns comes to school, how will that change things?

That’s it for the weekend, hope you have a great week and Valentines Day. I’ll see everyone on Friday. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

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!

Yeah, that Super Bowl … A Bit of Let Down, Wasn’t It?

Hi friends, I don’t have much to report this weekend because of Kingdom Hearts 3, the Super Bowl and making the fanfiction archive. The Super Bowl was kinda a let down right? I mean, it was a game of many firsts for a Super Bowl, but I’m not sure ‘lowest scoring game’ is one that either team wanted. Some of the commercials were interesting but last years were better and the Half-time show was okay, but not the greatest especially with all the bleeping. In other news, the fanfiction archive is growing, but it’s not done yet.

Kingdom Hearts 3, is an awesome game. I’ve done most of the worlds shown in trailers: Tangled, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, Frozen, Monster’s Inc. and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Big Hero 6 is next and we’ll find out where we go from there. There are a lot of cut-scenes in-between worlds cause there’re just so many characters to follow. I’ll really looking forward to where this all is leading!

Story-wise, I continued reading Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold and started rereading Harry Potter and the Stargate. The new chapters for this weekend are: Relic of the Future, Seerking’s Asylum, Hive Daughter, The Unseen Hunt, Tsunami and Mauling Snarks..

I started reading the sequel to the Danger-verse story I mentioned last time by whydoyouneedtoknow called, Living Without Danger. It follows Harry and the Pack throughout their first two years at Hogwarts and their adventures without Danger around. It’s good and looking forward to the rest.

I also got a updated for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, called Peace through Power by Vherstinae. It’s a Command & Conquer (Game) and Worm Crossover where Taylor finds a journal of her mother’s time under Lustrum and finds the phrase ‘Peace Through Power.’ She uses this and her mother’s powerful family to free herself from Winslow and the story goes on from there. It’s only nine chapters so far, but it’s interesting.

Finally, I started reading a Harry Potter and Stargate SG-1 crossover called Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life by kossboss. It has the basilisk bite weakening the soul piece in Harry’s head after second year, allowing Harry to take all the memories and destroy it. Using them and looking over his life, he decides to take all he can and go through the unlocked ‘Veil of Death’ to an alternate reality. He ends up in room with the Quantum Mirror (before SG-1 gets there). Watch how his presence changes things! I haven’t finished, but it looks like its still going!

See everyone on Friday. I look forward to a finishing another day of work and continuing KH3. Have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

First Week on the Job!

Hello my friends! My first week of work was tiring, but worth it. I’ve proved I can do it, both to my employers and myself. I haven’t had much time to myself because of work and sleep, but I did some things. One of those things was work on the fanfiction archive I have. I’ve done some of the authors, but I also took care of the one that was the most trouble, you guessed it sakurademonalchemist. I hope to finish it this weekend, but I plan to finish it by this time next week at the latest.

I played the beginning of Kingdom Hearts III, but haven’t had much time as I said. I finished the amusing little segment at the beginning and am now in the actual game. I also read more Taylor Varga and reread No Need for Harry. The new chapters this week are from: Celestial Worm, Reality Bites Worm, Service with a Smile, Hive Daughter, Breaking the Gilded Cage (Tues & Fri), Angels and Demons, Unexpected Restart, Deku: The Telekinetic Hero, Worm – Justice for All, Ashikabi of Thunder and Lightning, Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks Omake, Konsō, Broken Dreams, Ashes to Flame and Mauling Snarks.

I did get some time to read also and reread (or at least start to) two fanfics. The first is called Living with Danger by whydoyouneedtoknow. It’s the first of the Danger-verse stories. It’s a Harry Potter story where Hermoine has a much older sister, nicknamed ‘Danger.’ She is a seer, who got her magic when she found their parents dead soon after Voldie died. She finds Harry when she and Hermione move into the area. They accidentally meet Remus and things fall into place from there. I finished this one, but haven’t started the second in the series. Be sure to read it and it’s sequels!

The second is called Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold by LeadVonE. It’s another Harry Potter story, however this one starts with a Harry that has been in Azkaban for 10 years. Voldemort has been in control for a while, but Harry has been in Azkaban since 2nd year when Ginny died. Why? Because why wouldn’t the abandoned brother of ‘The-Boy-Who-Lived’ (fake) do that to his brother’s girlfriend (on trumped-up charges). After being tossed through The Veil, he learns that Dumbles did it to keep him out of the way until it was time to use him. He is told this by Fate and Death who have already repeated the timeline once using his brother John. They send Harry because John clearly can’t do it, but the recently sent back John will be there too. Sound complicated, it is but is good anyway. It’s a good story and is on the third ‘book’ if I remember correctly.

That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend. I’ll see everyone on Monday. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

The First Day of the New Job and Going to Pick Up KHIII Soon!

So, it was a long first day on the job, but I’m grateful I have one! Because of that and other things, I don’t have much for this weekend. However, I have gotten started on the fanfiction links I promised. You’ll notice on the top of the page next to the Archive link, there is now a Fanfiction & Links link. I’ve split it so you can look for the fics by Author or by Original Story. There are links to these sections in the Fanfiction link, along with other links I’ve given that aren’t fanfictions. Since I didn’t have as much time as I would like, I’ve only add two author’s stories into both sections. Have a look if you like (I don’t know why the color is pink, I also haven’t had time to look into how to change it). Also, I’ve decided to have the name of the fic be the link to the story from now on my posts and the Fanfiction section.

Moving on, I read more Taylor Varga and Sky Bunny along with the Slime Web Novel and reread Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue and Petrification Proliferation. I also watch some more of the Black Clover anime, but switch to the manga after episode 30 and read up to the latest chapter, 190. The new chapters from this weekend are: Mauling Snarks, Tsunami, Seerking’s Asylum, The Unseen Hunt, Devil Ninja, and History’s Strongest Disciple Again? (azndrgn is taking Feb off to focus on Kingdom Hearts III). I wish I could, but I’m gonna get the game in less than an hour then probably crash.

I did read a few new fanfics anyway. The first one is Red String by Lady Hallen. It’s a KHR and Harry Potter story where fem. Harry meets Reborn after her war and after he grows up again. They hit it off and start spending time together, however with both of their secret lives, can they stay together? Find out if you read.

The only other one I read is called, Luna Lovegood and the Dark Lord’s Diary by The madness in me. It has Luna ending up with Voldemort’s diary a few months into her first year. When she writes in it, Tom of course writes back and wants to go back to Ginny. However, Luna likes him and doesn’t think he has Ginny’s interests at heart (lol, yeah no), so she keeps the diary. So the question must be asked, will Luna fall under his influence … or will Tom end up under hers?

Sorry it’s so short, but I’m tired and really will probably crash after I pick up KHII (as much as I would love to play it, I really need sleep). See everyone on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

I Got a Job! (YAY!)

Hey everyone, I finally got a job that isn’t temporary! I start on Monday and it’s a 10 hour work day so I may start posting earlier on Monday cause I start at 6 in the morning. I’ll have less time to read, but that doesn’t mean that I’ll stop posting. So look forward to many more posts my readers. I’ve decided that I’m going to create a fanfiction page where you can look through either the author’s name or originating story to find a certain fanfic. I’ll try and implement it this weekend.

This week was again more Taylor Varga while I continue to work through the web novel of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and finished rereading Demonic Jewels. No new episodes of the Slime anime yet cause that comes out on Monday. The new chapters for this week are: Flames, Reality Bites Worm, Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Hive Daughter, Seerking’s Asylum, Campione of the Raging Tides, A Ninja Summoned, Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Friday) & Omake(Wednesday), The Gamer, Titanfall, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Ashes to Flame, Mending the Knots, Breaking the Guilded Cage, Angels and Demons and Taylor Varga Omake (MCU).

In the fanfiction world, I started reading (but haven’t continued cause it couldn’t fully keep my attention) ‘Forged in Hellfire: Lost Soul Reborn’ by RainthelingeringSentiment. It’s a Naruto and Mortal Kombat crossover. Mortal Kombat is an arcade game turned movie and cartoon/anime? I don’t normally pay attention to it, but the fanfic sounded interesting at first. It has Naruto falling in love with Haku on the Wave mission and sacrificing himself to save her from Kakashi’s attack. This awakens the sleeping portion of his soul that was formerly Scorpion’s (Hasashi Hanzo) and they have to merge to stay alive. The resulting personality is a mix of the two and he has to figure out who he is now. It’s a harem fic. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11624888/1/Forged-in-Hellfire-Lost-Soul-Reborn.

The second one in the same situation as the first is ‘Time Traveling Prince’ by Tactition101. It’s a Naruto and Sailor Moon crossover where Naruto is Chibiusa’s older twin brother who was sent to the allied Konoha to learn. He is sent after her to help her when she goes to the past and does his best to help her. It just didn’t catch my interest that day. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6492083/1/Time-Traveling-Prince.

The only other new stories I read were, of course, more sakurademonalchemist ones! Only four this time though. The first is ‘Lost Name’ and is a crossover between Cardcaptor Sakura and Harry Potter. It has Harry being Eriol from the second series and making his own cards. Clow even gets his own body for a while. Unfortunately, it’s another one of those stories that hasn’t been updated in a long time. But, if you want to read it, the link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10450983/1/Lost-Name.

The second one is ‘Angels Among Us,’ which is a crossover between Supernatural and Ghost Rider. It has an angel that has been captured in Hell being the power behind the Ghost Rider. When Dean is in Hell, he sees the angel and becomes her vessel to break her out of Hell when he gets out. Having her around changes things and mostly for the better. Find out how here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10442197/1/Angels-Among-Us.

Third is ‘Soul and Sword,’ a crossover between Yu Yu Hakusho and Fate/Stay Night. Shiro heard about Genkai from his father before he died, so he goes to her to help him train as a Magus. He ends up in her tournament and ends up getting training from her alongside Yusuke. Shiro unlocks his magic and learns how to be a psychic while helping Yusuke and the gang. Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10232459/1/Soul-and-Sword.

The final on is the one I’d already read, ‘Sky Bunny.’ It’s one of the newer(ish) of their stories and is a crossover between KHR and Yu-Gi-Oh! I’ve mentioned it before, but haven’t talked about it. So, Yu-Gi-Oh! Is an anime based on a card games of the same title. The original series is about Yugi Muto, an aspiring duelist who has an old gold Egyptian puzzle necklace that looks like and upside down pyramid. This necklace has the spirit of an old Egyptian pharaoh who takes over and helps Yugi duel. He soon learns that just because it’s a game, it doesn’t make it any less real.

The story has a Fem. Tsuna becoming Yugi’s rival’s, Seto Kaiba, assistant to get away from her hometown. Seto ends up keeping her as his assistant and even transfers her to his and Yugi’s school (before the series starts). She gets caught up in the madness, but she does her best to help out those around her. Find the story here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12629452/1/Sky-Bunny.

I also watched the first episodes of the anime, “Black Clover.” It’s about a young boy named Asta who wants to become the Magic King to prove a poor orphan can do it. The only problem, he doesn’t have any magic. When everyone else, including his rival Yuno, gets a grimoire and he doesn’t, he’s devastated. However, when he stands up to a magician to save his friend, he gets a grimoire that manifests a sword that cuts through magic. The one issue, it has a five-leaf clover on it. That indicates that it’s related to a demon, the very beings the original Wizard King defeated. What will happen next? I don’t know, I just started watching it, but it’s really interesting anyway.

So! Look forward to the new fanfiction database? (the best description I have for it) next time. See everyone then (alongside the time I get KHIII!) and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
