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 a sakurademonalchemist Weekend, with Some Dragons Mixed in!

Hello again my friends. It’s been an interesting weekend, but nothing too interesting. At least I’m on time this week. I started more closely rereading Here in My Arms and that’s the only previously mentioned fic I read. The new chapters this weekend are: Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Relic of the Future, Taylor Varga (Omake), The Unseen Hunt, Luna Lovegood and the Dark Lord’s Diary, Muggleborn Teacher, Seerking’s Asylum and Souls of the Heart.

I got all three new Pokémon from this weekend’s event (Clampearl and it’s evolution) and even got two shinnies out of it. I also got the all the Pokémon from eggs (except for Happiny, which came from the Valentine’s event). I recently learned that you can catch Smeargle by taking photos of your Pokémon until it photo booms it. Then it’ll be in the wild wherever you are. I did it and it works.

The new fics are only from sakurademonalchemist, but that’s not the only thing I have to talk about. The first of these fics was Sora and Zorua. It’s a Harry Potter and Pokémon Ranger fic. Pokémon Ranger is a variant Pokémon game where you call Pokémon with a styler and only have one ‘partner’ Pokémon.

In the fic, Harry falls through into the Pokémon world and decides to be a Ranger at 10. He gets a Zorua that he helped once as his partner in order the save it from human revenge. He eventually gets his Hogwarts’ letters and heads there to learn how to use his powers. Not many ‘regular’ Pokémon characters, but a few are around. Not updated since 2014.

Second was Chaos Incarnate, which is a Ranma ½ and Naruto crossover. In it Ranma is cursed to keep looking as young as he did when he defeated Saffron and gets away from all but one of the fiancées. Later, he’s in the Leaf village and meets a young Naruto. Upon learning he’s a prankster, he gives Naruto a box of permanent cursed spring powder. What can go wrong with that? Also updated in 2014.

Third is one I reread called Some Hearts and is a Harry Potter, Marvel Cinematic Universe and Avengers crossover. After the war, fem Harry has her magic bound and is married to Draco Malfoy against her will. Hel, not liking that her newest ‘Master of Death’ was powerless, works things around that the two of them are in New York during the events of the end of Avengers. She finds a way to head to Asgard with Thor and Loki and uses that to help herself heal. Will she be able to find someone on Asgard? Same update year as the last two.

Next is another who I reread called Shinobi of the Night Sky. It’s a Naruto and Lyrical Nanoha crossover where Fem. Naruto is found with the Book of Darkness after the sealing of the Kyuubi. It activates at a young age and she finds herself partially paralyzed and with new family. How will the TSAB react to this? This one has not been updated since 2013.

Following that is Alchemy and Wizardry, a Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist crossover. Before the Elric brothers can attempt human transmutation, they get letters to Hogwarts and decide to go. There they befriend fellow first year, Harry Potter. Will their new friend be able to stop them from trying to bring back their mom or will he decide to join in? This is based on the original anime, not the manga storyline. Also not updated since 2013.

Next to last is King of the Changlings, which is a Naruto and My Little Pony crossover. In it Naruto tries to summon without a contract at a very young age and gets Chrysalis, soon to be Queen on the Changlings. He signs her contract and she and her minions work to get him a better life. But how will things go when he meets the normal ponies after years of working with the changelings? Same update year as last two.

Finally, there was Unspoken Wars, which is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. Having had enough of the British Wizarding World after fourth year, Harry finds he has a relative Japan (Petunia was not related to him) and decides to got live with him. Enter Shiro Emiya, a Magus. But after years of animosity between Wizards and Magus, can the two get along? Also updated in 2013.

Moving on from fics, I also watched “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” this weekend. It’s good and I won’t post spoilers for it, but it is definitely the last in the series. The way the ending went, unless they decide to do something far in the future (or do things before the movie), there will be no more. I’m sad, but all things (good and bad) come to an end. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t appreciate that we will have even more great things to come.

That’s it for today, though I have to say my Kingdom Hearts shirts came in this weekend as well. I can say this knowing I wore it on my shirt all of today, May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Day Late, Yet Again

Sorry this is a day late again everyone. I didn’t sleep well Sunday night and yesterday I apparently conked out right after dinner and didn’t wake up until a little before my alarm this morning. Didn’t even remember about my blog until halfway through the morning. I’ll include today in the post (not that there was anything new today). There wasn’t much this weekend, though I did get 6 shinies for the Swinub Community Day on Saturday. I also got all the Sinnoh Stone evolutions, but no Happiny yet. This weekend there are tasks during the same time as a Community Day that allow you to get Clamperl and its evolutions.

Onto the fanfics, I finished rereading Rising From the Shadows and Hawk-Eyed Charlie. The new chapters were: Black Sky (one last one on Sat), Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right, The Unseen Hunt, Seerking’s Asylum, Ashes to Flame, Souls of the Heart (not finished, misread an author’s note), Recoil (been waiting for this!), Teeth and Claws, and Mauling Snarks.

First off, I started rereading the third year version of the ‘Last Mage’ saga by TheBeardedOne called A Distant Storm. It follows Kal-El Harry and his adventures. However this time it includes elements from Fantastic Beasts. Still a good series. After that it was mostly sakurademonalchemist, but there were some from sbmcneil too.

The first of sbmcneil was Odyssey to the Orient. It has Harry and Ginny accidentally grabbing a portkey when cleaning Grimmuald Place. It takes them to an Asian country and they have to try and find their way back while their friends and relatives try to find them. It’s a fun little three-chapter story that doubles as a love story. Try it out!

The other one from them was Without a Trace. It’s a five-chapter story that has Harry and Ginny running away from the Wizarding World less than a year after the war ends. It follows two aurors tasked with what finding out why on Arthur’s request after eight years. Read as they reveal what lead to them leaving. Will they be able to find them? Read and find out!

Moving onto sakurademonalchemist, the first one is a purely Harry Potter fanfic called, Time Turned Back. At the beginning of fourth year, Harry finds Draco stealing from Snape’s potion supplies. In the resulting clash, Harry ends up in Hogwarts during his parent’s time. He decides to change things and goes to Slytherin to change things. This is one of the few that this author has finished.

The second one is a Supernatural fanfic called Castielle. In the future that Dean visits where Castiel is addicted to drugs, the world essentially ends and God sends Cas back to help change it. However, in order to do that he needed to make him, a her. Castielle has to help change the future while getting used to being a girl. Not finished and not updated since 2014.

Third is a Harry Potter and My Little Pony crossover caled Dusk and Dawn. My Little Pony is about Twilight Sparkle, a unicorn who spends her days in the library. She is sent to help out Ponyville prepare for a festival, but ends up finding friends and battling an ancient evil. That’s just the start as the story continues through many seasons, several specials set having them as humans and a movie.

In the fanfic, fem Harry is really Twilight’s sister that was stolen by Fawkes as a young foul. When her wand is broken before fifth year, she finds a spell to take her to her home. She leaves, takes Sirius with her to be reunited with her family. Again not finished or updated since 2014.

Next is Howl of the Moon, which is a Howl’s Moving Castle and Harry Potter crossover. Howl’s Moving Castle is a Hayao Miyazaki movie. He was a director for Studio Ghibli for many years and has directed many great movies. Howl’s Moving Castle is about a girl named Sophie who is a normal girl until she meets the mysterious Howl. A witch doesn’t like them getting along so she curses Sophie. Watch Sophie try to break her curse while dealing with Howl and trying to stop a war.

In the fanfic, fem Harry ends up in the Howl world a few years before the events. She takes Sophie’s place as the main character and causes massive changes. Don’t worry however, Sophie has her place in the story. Same as the last two in updates.

Then was Cinnamon and Red, a Pokémon Adventures and Harry Potter crossover. Pokémon Adventures is a comic that follows Red (who is like Ash) and Blue (who is like Gary) on their adventure.

The fic has Cinnamon as Red’s sister, who was kidnapped as a kid to become the girl who lived. It has her joining her brother and Blue on their adventures. There are no elements of HP in currently cause it hasn’t gotten that far yet. Again, same as the last three on updates.

I’ll leave the rest to next time as I want to get this up and I have an early day tomorrow. Sorry again for the late post and I’ll see everyone on Friday. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
