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!

I Changed the Archive and Made a Poll (Please Vote!)

Hey everyone! It’s been a week and no one has liked (or really read) any or the posts since I started this style of writing. Therefore, I made a poll that I’ll put a link to at the beginning of the post for the next week while I continue with this style. After those two weeks, I’ll look at the result and use the winning style from now on. Please take some time to vote here – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

I’ve also redone the archive section like I mentioned last time. The only direct chapter links in the Archive will be from the current month. When we get to February, I’ll move the January post links to a January page and put a link to it in Archive. When 2019 ends (and I hopefully will still be posting and have more people reading my posts), I’ll do what I did with my 2018 posts and move the month links to a new 2019 page that will be linked on the main Archive page.

These past few days I’ve read some more of Outfoxed and Lord Over the Night Sky and started rereading Prime Directive: Hero, How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk and Taylor Varga. The new chapters were from: Tsunami, Service with a Smile, Reality Bites Worm, My Hero Academia (manga chapter), It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble!, Taylor Varga and Death March (the online story).

Since I liked the fanfic Archer from last post, I decided to look into other stories by the author Fencer22. The first one that caught my eye was ‘Flames’ which is a Worm and KHR crossover. The only real crossover is that Taylor triggers with Dying Will flames, but not Sky. Instead of the normal Taylor’s outlook of becoming a Hero, this Taylor is more practical and wants money to prepare for the imminent end of the world (and explains why she thinks so). It’s interesting, though it only has 13 chapters. If you would like to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13042230/1/Flames.

The other one I found interesting was ‘Grind,’ which is a Worm and multiple crossover fic. It has Taylor triggering with the power to enter any type of story (Book, DVD or game) and gain the power(s) of whatever characters she or anyone she brings along play as. The only issue, they have to go through the whole story. For example, when she goes into the first book, she’s stuck ‘reading’ the book and doing whatever the main character does for four hours until the end of it, basically outing herself. It’s a good story, sadly the author decided they could not write it anymore and just posted a spattering of scenes leading up to an ‘ending’ for the last chapter. So, if you feel you can read it and not be disappointed with that ending, feel free to read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11375309/1/Grind.

Next, sakurademonalchemist posted a new story called, ‘Breaking the Gilded Cage.’ It’s a KHR and Natsume’s Book of Friends crossover, with a female Tsuna turning back time to her younger self to get away from the Vongola and instead taking the route of Takashi from Natsume’s Book of Friends. It’s only two chapters long so far, but it’s not bad. Kinda hard to make a decision about how a story will be in two chapters. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13166072/1/Breaking-the-Gilded-Cage.

Following that I found the fic ‘Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R-eset’ by Starlight’s Poet. It’s a Lelouch of the Rebellion story with side stories like Code Geass: Akito of the Exiled and game storylines included. It starts off with Lelouch getting the chance to relive his rebellion from the start and him taking it. He’s more powerful this time and knows what happened to his mother, so he can focus on taking down Britannia. The story is interesting and I haven’t finished it yet up to the current chapter yet, so I hope it continues to be so. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10704227/1/Code-Geass-Lelouch-of-the-Rebellion-R-eset.

Finally, I started rereading ‘Neo Yondaime Hokage’ by Psycho G. The story is a Naruto one where Minato not only seals the Kyuubi into Naruto; he also seals himself. Naruto grows up as Tsunade’s ‘son’ and soon finds multiple women after him. But, just because he is stronger doesn’t mean he’ll bulldoze through fights. He still will have issues, just different ones than the normal ones. He even accidentally visits the ‘canon’ universe and changes things for the better! It hasn’t been updated since 2015, but hopefully it will eventually be updated. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3201446/1/Neo-Yondaime-Hokage.

Going back to more of what I watched during my ‘Christmas break from blogging’ (I’ll be doing one or two movies/shows for the next few posts because I watched a lot during that time period) I watched “The Mummy Returns” from the Mummy series. I’ve seen it and the rest of the series before, but I always enjoy rewatching them. Watching Rick and Evelyn O’Conner battle it out against Imhotep while trying to save their son is great. I was sad Evelyn didn’t return for the third movie, but it was good anyway. Not sure which one is my favorite, though the third one was probably my least favorite. I would recommend any of them though if you haven’t watched them yet!

To finish it off, I watched “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” I would have liked it better if I had read the story before hand, but it was what was decided to watch at that time. I found it interesting, even if I missed the first part. I’ll probably read the books sometime, but I think I’ll like the books better because it looks like they just crammed the second book at least into the last 30 mins of the movie.

Anyway, that’s the end of the post today! Look forward to the post on Monday and don’t forget to vote! Here’s the link again, just in case – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

Happy Early Christmas!!

Tuesday

Hello mina! Today, I read more God Slaying Blade Works. The new chapters today were from Black Sky and Reality Bites Worm. I also watched some Eyeshield 21 anime.

I read some comics from project-ml on DeviantArt. They are all based on Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir and were typically about the reveal of each other’s identities. The first one was ‘Love Bug’ and is set around Valentines Day a year from the one in first season and has 5 chapters. The rest are shorter, but some of them are called: ‘Why Chat Does Not Prank His Lady’ and ‘Halloween Reveal.’ These can be found at their gallery here – https://www.deviantart.com/project-ml/gallery/.

There was also a short chapter from another Miraculous story called ‘Email Exchange’ by XphiaDP. Instead of the characters getting their Miraculous, they are set up with a secret email exchange with another student who you don’t know the name of. The story follows the emails between ‘Ladybug’ and ‘Chat Noir.’ The link to the fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12242473/1/Email-Exchange.

There was also a fun little one-piece from the Fate universe called ‘Shirou and Lancer Drink Tea’ by Lord Mendasuit. Instead of Lancer killing Shirou again at his house, Shirou offers him tea and informs him that he is a mage, thus doesn’t need to be killed. This leads to amusing events and an interesting conclusion. It also reminded me of a fun little omake at the end of chapter 41 of From Fake Dreams that has waffles changing the course of the Fifth Grail War. The link to the one piece is here –  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10734607/1/Shirou-and-Lancer-Drink-Tea and the link to the chapter with the omake is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7207791/41/From-Fake-Dreams.

That’s it for today, folks. See you tomorrow!

Wednesday

It was once again a day full of God Slaying Blade Works and watching some more Eyeshield 21. The new chapters today were from: Black Sky, Organization 13 and a Half, It’s in the Cards, and Heroes Assemble! I also reread another one of sakurademonalchemist’s stories that I haven’t mentioned yet.

This one is called ‘Sight Unseen’ and is a crossover between Natsume’s Book of Friends and KHR. It has a female Tsuna getting taken from his mother’s custody and placed with her grandfather. Then she takes on the role of Takashi from Natusme’s Book of Friends. Oh, did I mention that she’s been shunted back to her younger self and has the gamer system? Watch how this mash-up turns out, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12904481/1/Sight-Unseen.

Since it came out on DVD yesterday, I also took the time to rent “A House with a Clock in Its Walls” with Jack Black. It’s based on the book of the same name by John Bellairs. When his parents die, Lewis is sent to his Uncle Johnathan. However, his Uncle and his neighbor Florence seem to hiding something. He eventually learns that magic is real and the house is alive (and likes him). He starts to learn magic himself. But, what’s with that clock that’s inside the walls? I liked this movie, but I’m glad I waited until it was available to rent because it wouldn’t have been worth seeing in theaters.

Nothing more for today people, see everyone when I post tomorrow!

Thursday

It was God Slaying Blade Words and Eyeshield 21 again, but I also started rereading It’s in the Cards as well. There were new chapters from: Under the Sea, Demon Lord of the End, Black Sky (chapter 300!), and Mending the Knots. I also saw a trailer for a new Men In Black called Men in Black International. It has Liam Neeson, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in it and looks interesting. It’s in theaters in June next year.

The only other thing I did today (other than play some of the new proud mode levels on KHUx) was watch the ending and then the beginning of two movies on TV. I watched the later half of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”  To be honest I’m a bigger fan of the first movie, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”  While I like Johnny Depp, I felt this character and story was trying too hard.  Maybe I’m just biased, but those are my thoughts on it.

I watched the beginning of “The Santa Clause 2.” I agree with what some of my relatives said, that it’s the best of the three movies. My list goes: 2, 1, and then 3. The first one is good, and a classic, but the second one has a much better story and plot (in my opinion). The third was just another example of a franchise trying to overreach itself. If they had stopped at the second one I would have been perfectly happy.

That concludes today! I have decided skip next Monday’s post on Christmas (Happy Early Christmas/Holidays Everyone!), so my next post will be next Thursday. See you then!

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!
