Sorry! Longer Work Week (with the Quest!)

Sorry I’m late!  I ended up working Friday and went to sleep early and yesterday I was helping my mother out with an event along with Pogo Community day so I never got around to it… Anyway, been listening to more Taylor Varga and From Fake Dreams.  The new chapters this week are: Black Sky, Relic of the Future (1st Sat, 2nd Sat), The Unseen Hunt (Mon, 2nd Sun), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Viridescent, Kaien’s Fate, Aizen’s Experiment and Ichigo’s Sister, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Demon Skylark (Wed & Thurs), Ginny’s Plan, Famiglia Drabbles, Short Story Drabbles, Seerking’s Asylum, Devil Ninja, Titanfall, Deku: The Golden Sayian Hero of Hope & Game On! 3 1 (2 Chaps).

The first story this week was The Bug-Type Queen by LordCirce.  It’s a Pokémon and Worm crossover when Taylor is blasted into the Pokémon world by Bakuda.  There she finds she can communicate with bug-type Pokémon.  It covers her journey to find her way back while protecting her hive.  There are flashes of when she gets back, but there are only a few.  It hasn’t been updated since 2016, but hopefully it will be eventually!

Next is A Skittering Heart by stewart92.  It’s a Worm and Kingdom Hearts crossover where Taylor becomes a Keyblade wielder.  She teams up with Parian.  It also contains Final Fantasy elements.  It hasn’t been updated in a year, but it has 43 chapters.

Next was Newtype Bet by Arthur Hansen.  It’s a Gundam UC and Worm crossover where Taylor triggers as a Newtype.  She builds Gundams to fight the Endbringers, but it doesn’t get that far.  Only 5 chapters and it hasn’t been updated in a year, but it’s interesting.

With Time is a Danny Phantom fic by PhantomPhoenixGirl.  It’s a characters’ watch the show fic.  It doesn’t follow the show directly, but picks the episodes to view.  It’s fun, but only 4 chapters.

The next chapters for the Myrddin de Celestis quest start with chapter 42 – Lightning Slayer.  It’s a Harry Potter, inFAMOUS (the game) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer crossover that was three-chapters.  It has Fem. Harry being dropped off in LA as a kid and getting the electrical powers from the inFAMOUS game series.  She becomes a protector and when she comes of age, she decides to head to Sunnydale and see the Hellsmouth and the Slayer.  Rated M for obvious reasons.

Chapter 43 was Lightning Strikes and was most likely the story that prompted the last story cause it was in 2012 and this one was in 2011.  Its ten-chapters and has Fem. Harry with the same powers, but in London.  She meets her ‘family’ fighting Death Eaters and learns she has a twin sister.  She decides to put up with her family that hates her (because of Dumbles) and enter the magical world during ‘third’ year.  It has a Negima crossover, but it’s inconsistent because Eva and Chachamaru are mentioned as being friends before they even enter the story and introduce themselves… so yeah.

Chapter 44 was Rise of the Black Phoenix.  It was an eleven-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry is left for dead in a forest so the Dursley’s can stop the letters.  He finds his way to where he meets Ginny.  Because of his injuries he doesn’t go to school that year and stays with Ginny.  They decide to make their own organization to correct the world.  It’s okay, but the author says his 12th birthday is his 11th before ‘2nd’ year.

Chapter 45 was Order of Souls (the sort of remake of the last story).  It was two chapters and is sort of the same, but he spends less time outside and they focus on the shopping trip for him.

Chapter 46 was End of Worlds.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story that was really weird.  Before Harry goes to Hogwarts, he and many others are killed in the ‘Kaleido Event.’  The Powers That Be bring him back… Yeah, I really don’t get this one very much.

Chapter 47 was Divine Sight.  It was a ten-chapter Naruto and Harry Potter crossover.  In it, Harry doesn’t have magic, but chakra.  He’s looked down upon but does his best anyway.  Eventually (like on the last ‘chapter’) Naruto and Hinata are transported to Hogwarts and don’t know how to get back.  It’s okay, but not the greatest in the world.

Chapter 48 is Hyper Saiyans.  It was a ten-chapter DBZ story where Chichi dies in childbirth.  Gohan takes care of Goten by himself and eventually goes to high school to be able to graduate.  He meets Videl and things happen almost the same up to where she finds out, which is where it ends. Chapter 49 is Dragon Ball Acceleration.  It’s the same (only one chapter), but has him meeting Videl in a tournament and getting a date.  They meet again in high school.

Chapter 50 was Blood War.  It was actually their first story and it shows.  It’s a seven-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry and Ginny are connected to the ‘Source’ and allows them to communicate with former hosts of the ‘Source’ (mostly Gods and such).  They’ll become the mysterious Lord and Lady Phoenix and fight Voldemort.

That’s it and sorry again.  I’m also working on a database of the Pokémon I have, so that’s interesting.  See you all on Friday!  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key! (BTW the trailer for the KH III DLC is out!)

sakurademonalchemist’s Birthday and a New Series

Hello, intrepid readers. As I mentioned last post, from this post onward I will only be posting on Friday. Since last post I’ve mostly been re-listening to Desperately Seeking Ranma and Gamer of the Sword. The new chapters this week are Worm – Justice for All (2 chaps), Heroes Assemble!, Hashtag Believing is Seeing, Another Soldier Reporting, Angels and Demons, Seerking’s Asylum and Mauling Snarks.

Yesterday was apparently sakurademonalchemist’s birthday so they updated the three mentioned fics above and made two new stories that were in one of the compilation fics (it seems, haven’t gotten to them yet).

Dawn of Magic is a Harry Potter and Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn) crossover. Akatsuki no Yuna is about a teenager named Yuna who is the daughter of a cowardly king. On her birthday, her cousin (Su-Won, who she loved) kills her father in order to take the throne. She escapes with help to find those who can help her take back her country. It has a manga series still running and had a one season anime.

In the fic, fem Harry has been reincarnated into Yona and finds Su-Won suspicious. When she figures out her father is dead, she escapes without help. It’s only one chapter so far (and I don’t know much about the other story), but it looks interesting.

Corpse Cleaner is a KHR fic, where Tsuna escapes Japan at a young age and somehow becomes a crime scene cleaner for the mafia. He doesn’t know that his dad is in the Vongola, but helps the Varia clean up their messes. He sees Hayato and hires him to help with the disposal. Also only one chapter.

I also read More Short Story Drabbles which is a Naruto version of the Bleach and Kingdom Hearts ones I mentioned last time. It’s 70 chapters long, so I’m not even gonna try and mention all the stories it’s crossovered with, just the ones I haven’t mentioned before. Dream Eater Merry (a manga about a guy who can predict dreams and a dream demon), Frozen (if you don’t know this is, what rock have you been under?) and Okami (a game series about Amaterasu [the Japanese Sun Goddess] saving Japan).

There was also Supernatural Drabbles, once again a compilation fic but for Supernatural.  It’s 42 chapters and the previously unmentioned stories are: Legion (the movie where Angels try and attack humans), The Covenant (a horror movie where the descendants of the Salem witches face their own trials) and Five Nights at Freddy’s (a jump scare game series where you are a security guard that has to survive possessed animatronics).

I also started rereading (though I’ve never read far) and rewatching (same as reading) a series called A Certain Magical Index. It’s a series about Touma Kamijou, a Level 0 esper (0 means no power, or an undetectable power) who lives in Academy City. There they foster esper powers, though he’s a very bad student. He has horrible luck and the only ‘power’ he has is to cancel out any power that touches his right hand (only his hand). He meets a young nun who clams to be a magic user, but he doesn’t believe until he meets the people after her. Follow his and her story. There are also several spin-offs.

I’ve been watching Everglow (on Youtube) play though Kingdom Hearts Chi (x) a game that’s technically before Union x, but most of the scenes have been in Union x because the player is reliving it. The game was only released for PC in Japan and is no longer available. I’m mostly watching for the scenes not yet shown in Union x about the Keyblade War. It’s the last bit of information I don’t have about Kingdom Hearts.

Nothing more this week, I hope you have a great week and I’ll see you next Friday. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

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!

It’s Another Post with Mostly sakurademonalchemist Stories

Hi everyone, I’m on time this post! It was a short week, but I was kept busy with my job. I’ve started rereading Mauling Snarks and finished A Distant Storm, but other than that I haven’t really read something I’ve already talked about. The new chapters this week are: Naruto: The Game of Life, Heroes Assemble!, Hive Daughter, Taylor Varga (Omake Continued), Ashes to Flame (finishing it), Breaking the Gilded Cage, Angels and Demons and Mauling Snarks.

Moving on, I’m gonna continue with what I read by sakurademonalchemist. The first one I reread was Messenger of Hope. It’s a Naruto and Sonic the Hedgehog crossover. Sonic the Hedgehog is a game and cartoon about a very fast blue hedgehog that goes against Dr. Robotnik.

In the fic, Sonic and his friends are summons that fem. Naruto gets before she graduates the academy. She starts up a messenger service under another name and when she doesn’t graduate, makes it her fulltime job. Watch her and the Sonic crew change things, including the Akatsuki. It hasn’t been updated since 2015.

Second I reread was Gorgon, a Harry Potter and Fate/Unlimited Blade Works crossover. It has Illya waking up in Diagon Alley years in the past after being killed in UBW. She discovers it is when Harry Potter starts Hogwarts and goes with him to make his life better. Watch as she changes his and her lives to make them better. Also not updated since 2015.

Then came the ones I read for the first time. First one was Iced Darkness, a Harry Potter and Rise of the Guardians crossover. Rise of the Guardians is a movie about Jack Frost, a spirit who is chosen to join spirits like Santa Claus and Easter Bunny in the Guardians. However, Pitch wants to drag them all into the blackness. Who will win?

The fic has fem Harry becoming the dark version of Jack’s powers after her owl is killed and nothing is done about it. She and Jack are eventually told to join the Guardians, but Pitch has his own plans, including one that led fem Harry to where she is. Last updated in 2014.

Second is Golden Queen, a Fate/Stay Night and Harry Potter crossover. It has an under ten fem. Harry being assalted by a man in Japan and accidentally summoning a Saber version of Gilgamesh from the Archer at the church. He deages to Kol Gil and they grow up together under the Magus Killer’s fathering. How will this change things? Same update time as previous one.

Next is The Death God and the Mystic Eyes, which is a Bleach and Tsukihime crossover. Tsukihime is from the Type-Moon Universe. It’s about Shiki Tohno, a boy who, unless he wears special glasses, can see lines on everything that if he traces them, kills them. This ability is called, The Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. He has to deal with Dead Apostles and a True Ancestor that come to his city. Arceuid, the True Ancestor, is after one of the Dad Apostles that keeps reviving himself. In the Visual Novel, like with Fate/Stay Night, you can pursue different girls.

In the fic, Ichigo finds himself with these eyes and wants to change them. He works with Rin (from Fate/Stay Night) and Zelretch to do this. There isn’t much in the Bleach storyline yet, but that time period just started. Again not updated since 2014.

Lastly is one I mentioned about near the beginning of my blog, but didn’t link to or talk about. I reread Memories of Nobody, which is a Kingdom Hearts and Harry Potter crossover. It has Xion, #14 from Organization 13, taking Fem Harry’s place after the killing curse kills Fem Harry to put her and her parents into Kingdom Hearts to be reborn. Watch as Xion goes to Hogwarts and tries to save her fellow Nobodies (that she actually likes). Not updated since 2017.

Finally I reread parts of the fic, Here in My Arms by Platinumsabr. It’s a Rosario + Vampire fic. Rosario + Vampire is a manga turned anime about Tsukine Aono. He is a human boy who’s parents accidentally sign him up for a school for monsters (youkai) called Youkai Academy. He meets a female vampire named Moka who really likes his blood. However, she has an powerful inner personality that only he can free. Watch as he tries to get by while hiding that he’s a human.

In the fic, it’s after the first two years of schooling and Tsukine decides he’s gonna confess to Moka. It doesn’t go well and he chooses to let go of something that he already knew he had already lost, changing everything. It’s a good story with 30 chapters, but unfortunately hasn’t been updated since 2017.

That’s all for the rest of the week. I’ll be on time next week and hope everyone has a great weekend and those of you who play PoGo, good luck on Clampearl tomorrow. As always, May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

The End of the Death March (for now)

Tuesday

Today was once again, more Death March. I got only got to part 30 of act 16, but that was because I finished watching SkywardWing’s play through of Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded. The new chapters for today were from Service with a Smile, Paranormal Investigator Squad (now with a 5 Nights at Freddie’s crossover), It’s in the Cards and Reality Bites Worm. I also started watching Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, also from SkywardWing. After that it’s just 0.2 and Back Cover (since I’m playing and keeping up with Kingdom Hearts Unionx on my phone) and I’ll be ready for Kingdom Hearts 3 next year! I also forgot to mention, make sure you watch the new opening movie trailer for KH3 with the new theme, Face My Fears, it’s great. I’ll put a link here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VawSnaxtSI.

I’ll talk about a show that I rewatched a little bit of today called Princess Tutu. It’s about a story about a Prince and a Raven’s battle that wasn’t completed because the author died, escaping into the real world. However, the author made sure he would be able to direct things even if he died. Because things weren’t moving along, the author introduced a new element to the story, by giving a duck that had fallen in love with the Prince the ability to turn into a girl. She is also the only one who can return his heart shards to him (he shattered his heart to seal away the Raven). However, is this what he really wants?

It’s a pretty good, if a bit dark at times, story. It’s based on ballet and Duck’s or Ahiru in the Japanese version (which means duck anyway) transformed state, Princess Tutu, helps whichever character is in trouble that episode by dancing with them. There’s a dark twist in the middle and the ‘author’ is working against them most of the time, but I’ve always enjoyed it anyway. The first line of the anime is ‘Once upon a time, there was a man who died.’ Be sure to look it up.

That’s it for today, see everyone tomorrow!

Wednesday

I finished Death March today! Or at least up to where the story is currently. I’m glad I read it since the 78th part update cause I would have been worried until the next one if it had ended on the 77th. The next post on the Japanese story will be on the 16th, so I suspect that it will be translated on the 17th or 18th so I’ll look for it then. The new chapters for today were – Another Fine Mess, Seperated at Birth, Warlock Organization 13 and a half, and Heroes Assemble!

I started rereading the fanfiction ‘God Slaying Blade Works by Marcus Galen Sands. It’s a crossover between Fate/Heaven’s Feel and Campione! where when Illya and Shirou are about to face Angra Mayu, they are transported (because of the Grail and Rin’s use of the Kaleidoscope) to the Campione! world. Shirou kills Angra Mayu and becomes a campione. He works with Illya to get home to Sakura, while trying to figure out what to do with his new powers and friends. He joins the main story after the fight with Voban. I enjoy this story, but I wish it was updated more frequently. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8560965/1/God-Slaying-Blade-Works.

That’s all I did today, other than sleeping a lot. Looking forward to posting tomorrow!

Thursday

Today I continued reading God Slaying Blade Works, along with a few chapters of Desperately Seeking Ranma. The only new chapters that came out today is for Master Potter of Kamar-Taj. I also finished rewatching Princess Tutu, which was as good as I remember it being.

The only new thing I read today was “Roku de nashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records” or “Akashic Records of a Bastard Magic Instructor” by Tarō Hitsuji. It’s about Glenn Radars, who is a lazy person that has been mooching off his former magic instructor for a year. She forces him to become a magic instructor at a famous magic school, even though he hates magic. There he meets Rumia Tingel and Sistine Fibel who he eventually takes a liking to and all three help each other through the coming events. Though he’s like this now, he was once an assassin for the crown and he uses those skills to take on the opponents that try to harm his students. It was originally a light novel (that has 13 volumes and is still ongoing), it now has an anime and a manga version. I read the first book and watched all 12 episodes of the anime today. It’s pretty good and I’ll want to read the rest, but we still don’t really know what the Akashic Records are.

Also, thought I haven’t used it myself, I’m aware that PVP became available on PoGo today. I’ll try it out soon and mention what I think of it on here. I’m also going to look into making a page where you can see the archived posts without having to search through the main page, look forward to it!  See you when I post again 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!

Weekend of Stories (and Homestuck)

Friday

So, I’ve reached somewhere in Act 6: Act 2 of Homestuck (there are apparently 6 Acts in Act 6, go figure).   I’m on page 4929. And we have more new characters! Like 12 new troll characters (if I’m reading into this correctly, though I don’t know how many are actually important at this point) and two unknowns. Moving on from the weird story I can’t stop reading; I did read other things!

I read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks. The story I’m betaing for, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, put the newest chapter out today. I finished rereading No Need for Harry and read some more of The Accidental Animagus. I read the newest chapter of Parva Sub Ingenti by Quatermass and learned of their new one, which I read.

It’s called ‘GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There,’ and it’s a GATE and Star Wars Crossover. Essentially, Anakin crash lands on the world on the other side of the Gate around the beginning of the story (not too long before Episode II for him). He becoming involved in events there and it changes both his and the story’s fate. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13070510/1/GATE-Thus-the-Chosen-One-Fought-There.

azndrgn, the author I beta for, also updated another one of his stories – ‘Mending the Knots.’ Which is another RWBY one where Jaune doesn’t get into Beacon and starts a business. However, this one is a massage parlor instead of a café. It’s amusing and is now 14 chapters long. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12764610/1/Mending-the-Knots.

He also started a new story called, ‘How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.’ It’s a My Hero Academia story with a very slight One Piece (I’ll talk about One Piece eventually) crossover. Izuku (the main character who’s Hero name is Deku) gets Luffy’s powers (the upsides and the downsides) after being forcefed a strange fruit. Watch how this changes things.

Lastly, but not leastly (I’m aware it’s not a word, but I wanted it to be that way), I started rereading the first story in the ‘Honestly Harry’ series by Captain Compass. It’s called ‘Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts.’ It has Hagrid taking Harry to Hogwarts instead of staying in the hut when he tells him he’s a wizard. Many things change because of this. This is a soul bond story and is up to seventh story and the fourth year (seventh because before first year, after second year and after third year have their own stories). Getting to Hogwarts has 80 chapters (they aren’t that long though). None of the others have that many chapters, but the chapters get longer. It’s a good story, but not a frequent updater.

I was able to walk for PoGo today and was able to hatch both a Kangaskhan and a Mr. Mime. YAY! Thus my Gen 1 Pokédex was finished. I’m still working on the Celebi Quests (the 7 day thing doesn’t finish until Monday), but other than the one that hasn’t been released I have all of Gen 2 as well. Just missing the regionals for Gen 3 (along with the unreleased ones). It’s community day tomorrow for the Chikorita shiny, hope that goes well! See you tomorrow, right below this!

Saturday

Sigh. Today was both good and bad. So, I don’t think I’ve mentioned that I have a dog. She’s a longhaired Chihuahua. I love her a lot, but she doesn’t like storms at all. It was just my luck that it stormed heavily last night. She stays in my room at night and insisted on waking me up periodically to comfort her. I gave up on going back to sleep at 6, but then the storm ended. I’ve been a bit tired all day though.

Moving on, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Plenipotent Player Prince put out new chapters today and I read some more Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts. I also got an update for a reading story by yukicrewger called ‘Reading Chronicles Book 1: To The Victor, the Spoils.’ It has Naruto characters reading the fanfiction ‘Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils’ by Seerking. It’s the one that will be updated this coming Wednesday, so I’ll talk about it then. It’s amusing, but more complicated that I think it should be (the reading story not the original). The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11815425/1/Reading-Chronicles-Book-1-To-the-Victor-the-Spoils.

I watched some episodes of Skyward Wing playing Kingdom Hearts – Re:Coded and read some more of Ginny Returns. I was out for all three hours of the PoGo community day and got 9 shinnies. There was also this thing with an unknown Pokémon after the event that turned mostly into dittos after they were caught (I got a few ones that were chikoritas). I think it was teaser for the new Pokémon that’s going to be able to be gifted to PoGo from the Let’s Go games.

I’ve gotten to page 5263 of Homestuck. I’m on Act 6 Intermission 3, so far intermissions two and three are mini-games that I’ve watched someone else play instead of doing it myself. They mostly deal with introducing said 12 new trolls I mentioned yesterday and their history. To be honest, I think my projection that they would mostly be minor characters is mostly likely true.

That’s it for today! Maybe Homestuck will move onto the regular plot soon.

Sunday

Today was a very one story intensive one. I read some more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and Ginny Returns, but it was mostly Homestuck. After another intermission or two like the previous ones, the story finally got to when all the main characters are together. Only for the situation to go to crap in several ways and then for another character to go off the rails to fix it (which where I am now). I got to page 6553. I’m not sure how long it will take for me to finish it, but things are very interesting now and there are more short pages. I’m thinking of doing something with the information I’ve gotten from this story when I finish it, but don’t know what it will be.

In the absence of other reading material, I figure I should talk about One Piece. One Piece is the story about Luffy D. Monkey (in the English style). He wants to become King of the Pirates by finding One Piece where the former King left his treasure.

Luffy has become a rubber man (meaning his body is made of rubber) because he ate a Devil Fruit. Those who eat one get powers, but can never swim again and being in water depowers them. The story starts as he begins his journey to find a crew (and an actual boat). There are over 850 episodes out in Japan and the manga is still going. The English version, isn’t that good (at least at the beginning, didn’t watch much after that) and the dubbed song sucked.

No more today, maybe there will be more tomorrow!

Monday

SO! I finished Homestuck! All 8130 freaking pages. The main bit of the final fights was a 17ish min video. I think I learned something from this, but I can’t honestly tell you what that is yet. It’s freeing, but also a bit sad to be finished. There were some unanswered questions, but nothing that was too bad and a bit of mystery to an ending is never a bad thing.

I went back to my old posts to see when I started reading Homestuck and it was Tuesday the 4th of this month. Today is the 24th, so I read it in 20 days. That might as well be mostly like 14 days because I don’t think I read it much for the first week after I found it. Wow, that’s a lot even for me, especially these last few days. I would not suggest this story unless you plan to only read it sporadically or have a lot of time (and patience). There are at least 50 characters you have to pay attention to by the end (including dead copies from other timelines) and there is a lot of time ‘shenanigans’ as they call it. That’s not including the author deciding to have his own moment in the story with his own side story (including weird things dealing with the fourth wall being an actual wall [or window]?).

But enough about that, I read more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and finished Ginny’s Return. I read the new chapters for: It Gets Worse, Warlock, Cambion, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Mauling Snarks. I also reread two one-shots by kb0.

The first is called ‘Who Did It?’ It has Harry refusing that he should be in the tournament and working to solve who put him in it. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12888787/1/Who-Did-It. The second one is called “Hogwarts Protection System.” In it Hogwarts has a protection system and it activates when too many things threatening students come into the school on the night of Harry’s sorting. The Aurors are called (by the Sorting Hat), many things come out and several problems are solved or at least the process is started. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12488670/1/Hogwarts-Protection-System.

I also finished the sixth set of quests for the Celebi quest. I finished two of the seventh set, the Gold Gen 2 medal and the excellent curve ball. I only got one grass for the 40 grass or psychic type Pokémon, which sucks. Hope I finish it soon (wish I had this one during the community day).

See you all on Thursday and I hope that my ramblings help someone!
