I’m So Sorry and Finally the End of the Quest

Hey everyone… Yeah, sorry I haven’t posted these last few weeks.  I was busy, but I’m not afraid to say that I’m generally slightly depressed and that hasn’t really helped.  It’s nothing new, but it hasn’t affected the blog so far, so sorry again.  Other than that, things have been happening in PoGo and Wizards Unite.  PoGo has the Jirachi special research out and the Legendary Dogs are available for a few more days with a shiny chance along with Unowns spelling ULTRA out in 10km eggs.  Next week is a shiny Mewtwo chance and the following week 5th gen starts to come out.

For Wizards Unite there was an event last weekend where eggs were available through different colored 1km portkeys.  The rewards for that event will happen tomorrow with a dragon that’s not usually available in your region available for 3 hours.

Pokemon Masters app is also available now for your phones.  It’s a three vs three fight with gym leaders and other Pokémon trainers as your partners and opponents.  It’s fun but not as good as PoGo.

I spent a lot of the time rereading Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild, Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Black Sky, Yesterday’s Tomorrow, and am now rereading Ripples, & Another Fine Mess.  The new chapters are (for the last three weeks): An Essence of Silver and Steel (1st Sun & 2nd Sat), Compass of thy Soul (1st Mon, 1st Thurs, 2nd Mon, 2nd Wed & 3rd Thurs – [Last Chapter]), Headstart, Trump Card (Last 2 Chapters), Mauling Snarks (1st Mon, 1st Fri, 2nd Mon, 2nd Fri, 3rd Mon & 3rd Fri), Exodus, Worm – Justice For All (2 Chaps), Luna Lovegood and Dark Lord’s Diary (Last Chapter), Hybird Hive: Eat Shard (1st Wed, 2nd Wed & 3rd Wed), Supernatural Drabbles, New Beginnings (1st Fri, 2nd Mon & 3rd Fri), Trail by Fire (1st Fri, 2nd Mon & 3rd Fri), Relic of the Future (2nd Sat & 3rd Sat), The Importance of Intent: After the Credits (Last 2 Chapters 2nd Sat & 3rd Sun), The Unseen Hunt (2nd Sun & 3rd Sat), Souls of the Heart, By Your Side is Where I Belong, Taylor Varga (Omake & Interlude), Service with a Smile, Campione of the Raging Tides, Seerking Asylum, Mending the Knots, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, RWBY: Destiny of Remnant, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, I, Panacea, Less Than Zero, Code Geass: Lionheart of the Revolution, Playing Our Roles, Sealed Legacy, Broken Dreams, Go Away I’m Watching Porn, Flames, Ashikabi of Thunder and Lightning, Short Story Drabbles & Taylor Hebert, magical girl at your service. (Yeah, a lot I know)

So, I’ve read a lot, but I did finally finish the quest I set, I really forget how long ago.  Here are the last stories from Mryddin de Celestis.  EvoNet is a Harry Potter and Stargate: SG1 crossover.  Harry has his magic sealed and is exiled to the muggle world for trying to give everyone magic.  His parents and siblings do nothing, and most are in favor.  He finds a way to give magic to everyone anyway and helps the muggles become the third player in the war.  Also he helps SG1 with things.

A Supernatural World full of Paranormal Activity is the newest rewrite of their Harry Potter and King of Bandit crossover.  Harry runs away at five because he’s neglected in favor of the ‘Girl-Who-Lived’.   He’s trained by the King of Bandit and becomes powerful.  He goes to help his sister before her sixth year and ends up with a harem (or will).

hacker Magician: Smoke is a Harry Potter fic where Harry is technologically savvy and learns how to hack magic.  He becomes Smoke in his fourth year and starts gathering a team to change the magical world.  All under Albus’ nose.

Triad: Elements of Balance is a multi-crossover with Naruto, DC Universe, Twilight and Harry Potter being the main ones.  Many girl-girl relationships in this one.  Bella becomes a mutant able to control the powers of the different Lanterns, Fem. Harry vows revenge when they try to marry her off to Ron and Fem Naruto abandons Konoha and then leaves the planet.  Yeah, it’s weird, but fun.

Stop the Monster is a Harry Potter story where Daphne Greengrass decides to help Fem Harry in fourth year.  She wants to stop Dumbles from controlling her.  Also, she likes her.  And Luna and Ginny also get together with Slytherins.

I Know Your Secret is a Harry Potter fic where Fleur knows Harry is a girl in disguise and decides to seduce her.  They create a school newspaper and use it to expose all of Dumbles and the other’s secrets.  It has a short (not complete) sequel called I know Your Secret 2: Foretold where Skulduggery Pleseant is introduced.  That is also the end of the quest, Haza!

Brother, My Brother is a Harry Potter & Final Fantasy VII crossover by sakurademonalchemist.  This is another one where it was in the compliation fic.  Genesis is Harry’s older brother who was accidentally sent to the world of FF VII.  Harry goes to find him and makes life better, and more interesting.  Now has three chapters.

Blood in the Water is Naruto fic by Umei no Mei.  Shisui is saved by an OC who is a Kiri ninja he knocked up.  This changes things.  It’s a crack-fic (meaning is going to be silly) and the author claims Shisui is Hoshigaki Shizuma’s father.

Mirror, Mirror is a Harry Potter one-shot by kb0.  It has Sirius asks a few questions and gets Harry to answer his mirror early.  This changes many things.

Rituals is a Harry Potter fic by Epeefencer.  Ginny is super smart at a young age and starts doing rituals to help and protect Harry.  Only the first chapter is out.

Yeah, that’s it for the week(s).  Sorry again, I’ll do my best so that it doesn’t happen again.  See you next week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Sad End to a Week

Hello everyone!  This week was cooler, and I didn’t work as much, but it was also sad.  A co-worker I didn’t know that well passed out and was taken to a hospital yesterday.  We were informed this morning that she didn’t make it.  I don’t know the circumstances as my bosses didn’t know, but there were some emotional outbursts trying to get the company to change some things.  I can understand, but I didn’t feel comfortable with them using what happened to her to try and change things.  I know that people will be looking into how what happened, happened, but things done emotionally in this sort of situation, don’t usually end up going the way you want.

Moving on from that, I finished Harry Potter and the Mutant Academy and reread more of Desperately Seeking Ranma and started rereading Seerking’s Asylum.  The new chapters this week were: Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mending the Knots, The Unseen Hunt, Seerking’s Asylum, Compass of thy Soul, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Short Story Drabbles (Tues & Fri), Trial by Fire (Tues & Fri), Cage, Price of Blood, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, The Healing Touch, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Titanfall, Taylor Varga, Ginny’s Plan, Under the Sea, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, It Gets Worse & Harry Potter and the Chance at a New Life.

There was a Community Day for both Wizard’s Unite and Pokémon GO over the weekend.  The WU one was more of a having more of everything than more of one (although 9 ¾’s foundables were more common in my opinon) and the PoGo one was one mudkip (I got 4).  PoGo also introduced Team GO Rocket and Shadow Pokemon this week.  You can Purify them and make them stronger.

*Spoiler Warning*

So, I saw the new Lion King over the weekend and it wasn’t bad, but it was essentially an almost exact copy of the original, just in ‘live action’.  They changed some of the dialogue and some scenes slightly, but no much.  They made the ‘Be Prepared’ song more of a speech and had Nala leave for the Pride Lands before Simba had his revelation.

That wasn’t to say that I didn’t like it, but I didn’t feel that I really needed to spend the money to see it in theaters.  My biggest problem with it is that in the later scenes, I couldn’t always tell Nala and Sarabi apart.

*End Spoiler Warning*

So I decided to continue the Myrddin de Celestis quest this week.  Soul Armoury (and yes, that is how they spelled it) is a one-shot that I’m surprised wasn’t put in into Mystical Codex.  It’s a Harry Potter fic that has the Dursley’s dropping Harry at his grandparents soon after getting him and they go to Japan to get away Dumbles.  Not much here other than the info section has him at least getting together with the Greengrass sisters.

enLivened Player is a rewrite of at least the previously mentioned ‘Player.’ Sirius fakes his death and leaves a letter telling him (in double speak) and Harry decides to take control of his life (and do as many girls as he can).  He does become a vampire in this one.  There’s also a bit of DC Universe crossover at the end.

Cybertech: War of Evolution is a Marvel and Harry Potter crossover.  It has Harry abandoned with the Dursleys because of a prophecy saying he’ll reveal the Magical World.  He gets away from them and becomes a bigshot tech person.  He finds the Magical World and his twin sister while becoming a superhero and decides to reveal it.

Cybertech: Open Worlds is the sequel and has it and the DC universe merging over a few years.  It’s not finished, and I’m not sure it will be (but maybe because they also were not put in Mystical Codex).  Harry (or Kyle as he renamed himself) goes to the DC universe to help with the ‘convergence’ and helps his younger self from that universe.

Armoured Skill is supposed to be a rewrite of Cybertech stories, but earlier in the Marvel universe.  It’s not really very long and Open Worlds has been updated more recently than this one so… yeah.  Same premise, he just ends up with his ‘grandmother’ and goes against the Magical World because they ‘kill’ his girlfriend (he puts her on ice in the hopes he can revive her).

That’s all I’ll talk about today!  Hope you have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key.

It’s Short This Week (Cause I Work Tomorrow)

Hello, everyone!  I’m here again and I started working for the company instead of for a temp agency this week.  There was a lot of overtime this week and I’m doing some tomorrow.  I reread Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life and started rereading Desperately Seeking Ranma (from the point I last stopped) and did the same with Ashes of the Past.  The new chapters this week are: Black Sky, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, For the Honor of the Regiment (2 Chaps), Seerking’s Asylum, The Unseen Hunt, Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life, Service with a Smile, Code Geass: Lionheart of the Revolution, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Hive Daughter, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard, Titanfall, Trial by Fire and Ginny’s Plan.

*Spoiler Warning*

I saw Spiderman: Far From Home this weekend and I really liked it.  I knew Mysterio was a bad guy from information I heard about the comics, so I wasn’t really surprised.  The Peter ‘Tingle’ was hilarious, and it was cute how he and MJ got together at the end.  The side ‘romance’ of their friends was weird, but I guess some relationships are like that.

While the main plots of the story were interesting in Peter finally accepting that he’s more than just a neighborhood hero and getting together with MJ, the twists (especially at the end) are more interesting to me.  So, he’s won, got the girl and everything’s right.  Then, WAM, J. James Jameson reveals a video that accuses Spiderman of being the bad guy and reveals his identity to the world.  Really did not see that coming.  Finally, the last end credit scene with Fury and Hill being the Skrull Talos and his wife.  They talked with the real Fury about what happened and he’s somewhere in space with other Skrull.  Wonder how both will play out in upcoming Marvel Films.

*End Spoiler Warning*

I took a bit of a break from the Myrddin de Celestis Quest, but I did start reading Harry Potter and the Mutant Academy of Magic.  It has Harry getting mutant powers at a young age and the X-Men finding him and bringing him back to the Institute.  Now older, he’s going to Hogwarts to learn magic and get back at those who wronged him.  Read only 5 of 10 chapters, but it hasn’t been updated since 2013.  However, since it wasn’t put with the others, I can only assume it’ll be finished at some point.

I also read some of the web novel of Arifureta: From Commonplace to the World’s Strongest by Ryo Shirakome.  It follows the story of Hajime Nagumo, an otaku that was transported with all of his class to a magical world.  He was weaker than everyone else but had the attention of one of the most popular girls in class.  This makes at least one classmate mad and when Hajime protected them from a powerful monster, a ‘stray’ spell knocks him deep into the abyss.  He evolves there and becomes powerful but stops caring about his class and others.  He meets and frees Yue (a vampire princess) and gains God killing powers there.  It follows their story.  The anime just started, and the second episode comes out Monday.

That’s all I’ll talk about this week because it’s late and I have work tomorrow.  I’ll write more next week! May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

I’m Back (and I Completed the First Part of the Current Quest)

Hello, my readers, I am back!  Happy Late 4th of July!  So I went to Nashville for last weekend and that’s why I wasn’t able to post last week.  I had an early flight Friday and went to sleep early.  Over the past two weeks I got all the collectables in the KHII worlds and was officially hired by my work.  My first day is soon!  I got Carnivine and Tropius in PoGo and hope to get Pachirisu soon!  I reread Angry Harry and the Seven, Harry Potter and the Old Friend, Titanfall, Reality Bites Worm, Archer and Ginny’s Plan.  The new chapters these two weeks are: Relic of the Future (1st and 2nd Sat), An Essence of Sliver and Steel (1st & 2nd  Sat), Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Celestial Worm (1st Sat, 1st Thurs), The Unseen Hunt (1st and 2nd Sat), Devil Ninja, Mending the Knots, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye (2 chaps), Honestly Harry – The Year of the Spares, Mauling Snarks (1st & 2nd Mon, 1st & 2nd Fri), Are You Afraid of the Dark?, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, Service with a Smile (1st & 2nd Tues), Archer, Ripples, Demon Skylark, Short Story Drabbles, Heroes Assemble!, Famiglia Drabbles, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard? (1st & 2nd Wed), Souls of the Heart, RWBY: Destiny of Remnant, Ginny’s Plan (1st & 2nd Fri), How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk, Headstart, Gun Bunny, Tsunami, Seerking’s Asylum, Playing Our Roles, Black Sky (2nd Mon – 2nd Fri), Broken Dreams, Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold, Unexpected Restart, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor, Titanfall (1st Thurs & 2nd Wed), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub & Harry Potter and the Visored (a lot I know).

*Spoiler Warning*

I finally went to go see Toy Story 4 yesterday and it was as good as I imagined.  Bo Peep showed up and we learned why she left the movies originally.  The movie also brought up the question of what really counts as a toy with Forky who was made from trash and wanted to go back into it.  It also covered how toys feel about just being left on a shelf forever.  Buzz’s ‘inner voice’ was funny.

There wasn’t really a ‘bad guy’ in the movie.  Even the toy who was in the role had her reasons and got an owner.  Woody made the decision to stay with Andy instead of going with Bo Peep, but since Bonnie didn’t need him he made the opposite decision.  It’s a great movie and I enjoyed the plush’s imaginary sequences.

*End Spoiler Warning*

Signed, Anonymous by Enchanted Pink Jade is a Saint Tail fic I reread last week.  It has Meimi and Asuka Jr. exchanging a dairy anonymously talking about their problems and how to solve them.  It’s a cute little ten chapter fic that was written many years ago.

Senju Naruto is a new fic by TheBeardedOne that was started last Monday and finished yesterday.  It has Danzo trying to steal Naruto soon after the Kyubi attack and Kakashi stopping it.  He takes Naruto away and they both end up under Tsunade’s protection as her ‘sons.’  It’s a fun fic and there might be a sequel!

For The Honor of the Regiment is by mp3.1415player.  It’s a Worm and BOLO series (haven’t read it, but it has AI tanks) crossover with one of the BOLO tanks eventually taking over Taylor’s Shard.  It activates early and she is trained from an early age.  It switches back and forth between the beginning and current time.  Fun, but may be confusing to some people.

Trial by Fire is the latest by sakurademonalchemist.  It was in a compilation fic and is a Harry Potter and One Piece fic.  It has ‘Harry becomes Ace’ as the difference from Ace is Harry so we’ll see how the continuation goes.

I’ll finish the first part of the Myrddin de Celestis quest since there’s only 24 chapters left.  Chapter 71 is The Truths of Avalon.  It was a one-shot Buffy and Harry Potter crossover.  There’s no Buffy in it, but Harry goes slightly insane, turns into a girl (or was always one and it was hidden, don’t know) and escapes the Dursleys.

Chapter 72 is Thrice Bound.  It was a five-chapter Harry Potter story I’d read before.  Harry is a triplet of the two boys-who-lived and is often forgotten.  He meets Ginny and Luna on his tenth birthday and becomes soul-bound to them.

Chapter 73 is Twisting Worlds.  It was a four-chapter Final Fantasy XIII and Harry Potter crossover.  Lighting and Vanille are separated from the others and find Serah.  They eventually end up on earth and meet Harry and his twin sister who are new l’Cie.  Don’t know anything about Final Fantasy so can’t say much about this.

Chapter 74 is Two Worlds.  It was one-shot Twilight and Hannah Montana crossover (or would be).  In it Renesmee doesn’t like Jacob and rejects him.  Alice helps her move to Malibu, but it doesn’t happen in the chapter.

Chapter 75 is Lost Art.  It was a one-shot Naruto fic.  Naruto leaves Jiraya early on their training trip to learn a lost art from a book.  Jiraya doesn’t left Konoha know until he gets back at the end of three years.  They were about to go looking for Naruto.

Chapter 76 is We Will Be Heroes.  It was a one-shot Twilight fic.  The husbands of the younger gen vampires are cheating and the girls decide to become superheroes. … yeah, it’s kinda weird.

Chapter 77 is Ionic Storm.  It’s longest story here at 44 chapters.  It has so many crossovers (especially in the last chapters) that I’ll only mention Harry Potter, inFamous and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  It’s like previously mentioned stories, Fem. Harry gets inFamous powers and is brought late to Hogwarts.  Is M for a reason!

Chapter 78 is Midnight Savior.  It was a two-chapter Twilight fic.  Bella is the reborn ‘savior’ and awakens her powers before she goes to Forks.  She’ll end up with Alice, but they haven’t gotten together yet.

Chapter 79 is Upgrade Override.  It was a two-chapter Twilight and Xenosaga crossover.  Taylor goes on a field trip after Edward lives and gets infused with nanobots.  She saves Jane and they travel together.

Chapter 80 is Demonic Bloodlines.  It was two-chapter Naruto fic.  Naruto meets the Kyubi when he’s thrown off the cliff and instead of summoning a toad, Fem. Kyubi helps him.  He meets Hinata and goes to train with Guy.

Chapter 81 is Neketo Uzumaki.  It was a seven-chapter Naruto fic.  Fem. Naruto gets the Sharingan and is much better.  Yeah, not very interesting.

Chapter 82 is Hidden Element Kunoichi.  It was a one-shot Naruto fic.  Fem. Naruto pretends to be fat and only reveals she’s a kunoichi.  Fem. Sasuke (those she’s his twin) and Hinata are her teammates and they’ll end up together.

Chapter 83 is Unoblivious.  It was a 13-chapter Harry Potter fic.  Mostly one-shot stories about Harry asking questions instead of just plowing forward.

Chapter 84 is Possible Abominations.  It was a one-shot Kim Possible fic.  Ron is murdered while she’s on a mission and she promises to avenge him.

Chapter 85 is Evolution of Mana.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter and X-Men crossover.  Harry becomes a mutant while saving a girl from kidnaping and Professor X senses him.

Chapter 86 is History Reborn.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter fic.  It’s similar to another where Harry and Ginny plan to go back to the past but is mostly only his recollections of the past.

Chapter 87 is In the Era of the Fabled.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  Naruto and Harry are born with each other’s expected powers and one odd eye.  They’re connected, but Naruto hasn’t even been mentioned in the story yet.  Just Harry meeting Ginny.

Chapter 88 is Memory of the Arts.  It was a two-chapter Naruto fic.  Essentially a Missing Hokage fic, but with Naruto losing his memory and not caring about others.

Chapter 89 is Burst Reality.  It was a 19-chapter Harry Potter, Final Fantasy VII, Buffy and Code Geass crossover.  Harry and Ginny are time and space Gods to be.  Harry knows he is and dimension travels to grow up in a better environment.  He de-ages and comes back to go to Hogwarts.  It was once much longer, and Ginny knew she was one.  It also has a rewrite I’ll cover later.

Chapter 90 is Mana Uncovered.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter fic.  It has a mad-scientist Harry who makes a clone of his beloved twin sisters.

Chapter 91 is The League of Justice.  It was a one-shot Naruto and DC crossover.  It’s a slight extension of a Mythical Night that explains about Batgirl and Artemis.

Chapter 92 is Player.  It was a four-chapter Harry Potter fic (eventual DC crossover).  It has Sirius faking his death and Harry goes to Gringotts to do things.  The Order is useless, and Harry wins some money.

Chapter 93 is White Flames.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter fic.  In it Harry gets a mysterious power and bulks up.  Possibly has seer powers, maybe.

Chapter 94 is Infamous City.  It was a two-chapter Naruto fic.  The world has much better technology, but they still need ninjas.  Naruto saves Hinata and ends up betrothed to both her and her sister.  It’s the last one of Mystical Codex, but I’ll cover the other stories next!

That’s everything for this week.  I’ll see the new Spiderman this weekend and talk about it next week.  See you then and May You Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

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 Movie Week (and Another New Quest?)

Hello readers! I’m actually posting on Friday (gasp), I know it’s a shock.  It was an uneventful week, but things did happen that I’ll talk about later.  First though, there has been an update for PoGo that include several new Gen 4 Pokémon in the wild and 3 new lure modules that can help evolve into Magnazone, Glacion, Leafion and Probopass.  I’ve only done the first and last, but I’ll do the others tomorrow or most likely during the community day for Torchic on Sunday.

I read more of Ascension Book One: Bloodline (almost finished) and reread Issei – The Gaming Gear, Naruto: The Game of Life and some of Death March and Harry Potter and the Stargate.  The new chapters this week were – SAO: The Eroge, The Unseen Hunt, Master Potter of Kamar-Taj, Seerking’s Asylum (Mon & Fri), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Eighteen Years a Prodigy, Uzamaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils V2, Heroes Assemble!, Ginny’s Plan, Titanfall, Kingdom Drabbles, Famiglia Drabbles, Short Story Drabbles (Thurs & Fri), Supernatural Drabbles & Taylor Varga.

I’ll be talking about Detective Pikachu and the Saga of Tanya the Evil movie so it’s time for a

*Spoiler Warning!*

Okay, so Detective Pikachu was amusing and cute and I enjoyed it a lot.  I had wondered, even from just the previews, if Pikachu was really the dad.  Thus, I was not surprised it was the case.  I was interested in the fact the Mewtwo was the one from the first Pokémon movie (mentions of it being created in the Kanto region 20 years ago, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s been 20 years since the first movie) and wondered what happened with Ash in that world.

Moving on, I was also not surprised that the invalid father, not the son, was the culprit.  Yeah, that plot twist wasn’t very twisty.  What was, was that he wanted to take over Mewtwo’s body and put everyone in their Pokémon’s bodies.  I mean really, I’m fairly sure only he benefited from that.  What was really cool was the Ditto that could turn into humans.  I mean, it was shown in Sun and Moon that they could do that, but wow!

The rest was fine, but not great.  Oh, I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but the actual Pokémon movie this year is a remake of the first one, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.  Not sure what they’re going to change, but could be interesting.

Onto the Saga of Tanya the Evil movie, it was interesting.  It covers what happens in books 3 & 4, but changes where some of the interactions take place and advances some of the character’s story arc (I mean with Mary Sue [really, that’s such a stupid name]).  I haven’t read book 5 (the last one out in the US and I can’t find translations for the other 5), but Tanya hasn’t met her again bookwise after a brief encounter during her days testing things near the England equivalant.  However, in the movie, Mary and her unit are in Moscow when Tanya and her battalion attacked it.  Mary encounters Tanya and see her father’s gun.  She asks God (Being X) for help and has his blessing on her device throughout the movie.  They encounter each other again when Tanya is defending her new base and Mary Sue almost kills her, but Tanya wounds her and Mary is rescued.

It otherwise follows the book faithfully including, amusingly or disgustingly, the creepy guy from the Russian equivalent who wants (sexually) Tanya (who I remind you is only like 11 or 12).  The movie ends with Tanya and crew getting two months in the rear testing before (as always) Tanya’s good work gets her more subordinates and back to the front lines.

Also, I’ll talk about a fic by rayrae118 here because it definitely has spoilers.  Don’t You Cry No More is an Avengers: Endgame fic where Cap goes back and returns the stones, with a twist.  This Cap has made up with Iron Man and spent time with him and his family.  When he returns the Soul stone last, he is given the option of giving up his life for Tony’s, which he does.  It’s a sad One-shot, but worth reading.

*End Spoiler Warning!*

Following that I got an update for Price of Blood by ack1308 and realized I haven’t talked about it yet.  It’s a Worm fic where after the locker incident and before the start of the story, Taylor is attacked by boys sent by Sophia.  Before she’s knocked out, she finally gives the command to attack to her bugs and they don’t stop until she wakes up.  Many people die and the PRT take Taylor in.  Coil learns of Sophia’s imminent arrest; he convinces her the PRT is using her in an undercover operation and has her join the Undersiders.  It’s interesting, but a very sad fic.

I also started reading The Mythical Codex to the Multiverse by (currently, I swear, this author has changed their name so many times) Myrddin de Celestis.  It’s a compliation fic, but currently the author has been turning all of their older fics that they’re not working on into a single chapter and sticking them one by one in this one. [update, I even found that I’ve already made a page for them under Myrddin le Faye.  The one fic, Mythical Night, will be added to the new page for them and the old page deleted.]

Of the original compliation fics, there were crossovers with Infamous (the Game about a man who’s given electrical powers), Battle Girls: Time Paradox (A young boy from our time ends up in an alternate past where there are only girls and he helps Nobunaga Oda) and A Certain Scientific Railgun (A Certain Magical Index side story focusing on Railgun).  I’ll probably been working through them all of the coming week, so I’ll probably focus on each of such ‘chapters’ as their own fic (as they once were) and talk about them next time.  Lol, it’ll be my ‘new’ quest!

The first one is starts at chapter 18 and is called Thunderbird of Ilvermorny and was a single chapter fic.  It’s a HP fic sometime after the fall of Voldemort and Dahlia Evans goes to Ilvermorny in America.  Doesn’t say much about who she is as it really only introduces the character.  Hadn’t read this one before.

The other, and last one I’ll talk about today, was Star Class, a Harry Potter and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  It was a seven-chapter fic (that I had read before) where Harry and Ginny break free of their shackles (but not their multiple oblivations) and plan to die to in the Department of Mysteries.  They end up far in the future and join an academy that trains to stop an invasion.  They only briefly meet Fate and Nanoha, but it’s like in the six or seventh ‘chapter.’

That’s it for this week.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next Friday.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Code Geass Week (Late, but Not Under My Control)

Hello everyone, sorry for being a day late, but my internet was out last night and thus I couldn’t post.  Am I not supposed to post on Fridays?  I’m beginning to think so.  I’ve been continuing to reread Ascension Book One: Bloodline and also reread Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2.  The new chapters this week are: Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Another Soldier Reporting, Bleach Drabbles, Queen of the Sea, Short Story Drabbles, Burning Ice, Famiglia Drabbles, Pain and Hatred: A Stray Devil’s Tale, Seerking’s Asylum, Heroes Assemble!, By Your Side is Where I Belong, Titanfall, Taylor Varga, Relic of the Future & Gun Bunny.

As I mentioned last time, I went to go see Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;Surrection movie on Tuesday.  It was awesome, but before I go on –

*Spolier Warning*

For those who haven’t watched either the previous movies (which I did before the movie to know the differences, and I also love the third’s ending song, Re:One) or the series: Lelouch sacrifices himself at the end to take away the world’s hatred.  However, because he had taken his father/uncle’s code in the Thought Elevator he revived: without his memories.   The main difference in the series and the movies is that Shirley survives in the movies.  She takes his body away and gives him to C.C. to help.  She takes his scared and unable to take care of himself body to find another Thought Elevator to get back his memories.

It’s a great movie that allows characters to share their thoughts on him and what he did.  Facing a Geass user who can send her memories into the past if she dies, how will Lelouch beat her?  Will he be able to save Suzaku and Nunnally?  Where will he go now that he’s back?

I really like that he chooses to stay with C.C. after everything she did for him.  I feel bad for Kallen, but C.C. really took care of him while looking out for his body and deserves him in this one.

*End Spoiler Warning*

Also I heard that there is a 10 year plan for the series that I’m looking forward to!  (I also went to go see Detective Pikachu today [Saturday], but I’ll leave that to next time as it wasn’t an original part of this post.)

Moving on, because of the movie I tried looking for Code Geass fics where they watch the series after and couldn’t find one that was finished or updated recently.  The first one I found was The Truth Hurts More by sfaye-chan.  It has C.C. giving Nunnally the DVDs of the series and has all the surviving participants watch them.  It gets through episode 4 and hasn’t been updated since Aug last year.  It’s good, but again not finished.

Next was And It All Comes Out by Fearel.  It has C.C. giving the DVDs to Kallen and she gets everyone together.  It’s also on episode 4, but only halfway through it and it hasn’t been updated since 2016.

Finally, was Entropy by ShadowBlah2.  It’s the longest one, getting through episode 9 and the best one overall in my opinion.  It has Nunnally finding the DVDs (presumably from C’s World) and has everyone watch them, with things devolving as the episodes go on.  It’s funny to watch Suzaku (as Zero) be horrified with so many people knowing his identity and failing to tell everyone to get it over with.  It hasn’t been updated since mid-2017.

I also read another fic called Code Geass: Re by Ignatius Thunderblade.  It has Lelouch going back to his child body and changing things.  He reminds C.C. and eventually Kallen and he changes things slightly but ends up with he and Suzaku switching sides (sort of).  It’s interesting and being currently updated.

Finally, kb0 came out with a new fic called Ginny’s Plan.  It happens when Harry breaks up with her at the end of book 6.  She doesn’t accept it and has a plan to help him when the war.  Only one chapter and it’ll be updated weekly, but it has him going to Grimwald Place instead of Privet Drive and making it his base for the summer.  Looks to be interesting!

That’s it for this week.  Hope everyone has a great week and I really promise to have the next post on Friday!  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
