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!

An Irregular and Meltan Weekend (with some other things mixed in)

Friday

Today I finished The Irregular at Magic High School book 18 and read book 19 and read some more of Escape from the Hokage’s Hat. There were new chapters for Mauling Snarks, Ashes to Flame and History’s Strongest Disciple Again? (the one I beta read). I also read some more sakurademonalchemist.

The first new one (again for me, not overall) was ‘Swords of a Devil.’ It’s a Type Moon Universe and High School DxD crossover where Shirou is a devil and is kidnapped by the Church after he is adopted.   It was for the Holy Swords project that Kiba was a part of and it tempers his ‘saving people’ thing. Watch as he changes things, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11974930/1/Swords-of-a-Devil.

The other new one was ‘Queen of the Grimm.’ It’s a Once Upon a Time and Grimm crossover. Grimm is a TV Series about Nick Burkhardt who is a Grimm. A Grimm can see the true form of Wesen, which are part human and part animal. He defends his city from evil Wesen and helps those in trouble.

The story has Regina leaving Emma in charge of the town in order to get away from the Charmings and her mother. She ends up in Portland, OR and meets Nick. She is also a Grimm and helps him and others out. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11555943/1/Queen-of-the-Grimm.

I also watched the first few episodes of “Storage Wars: Northern Treasures.” It was okay, but the original is so much better. There’s way too much animosity and bad mouthing in this one. In the original, while they were competing, it was more of a friendly rivalry most of the time. In this one, they just seem to hate each other. I wouldn’t really recommend it, personally.

Nothing more for today, see you tomorrow.

Saturday

Today, I read more Escape from the Hokage’s Hat. There were new chapters for Relic of the Future, Harry Potter and the Stargate and Heroes Assemble! and Black Sky (Yay, it’s back. Though it’s only sporadically for now). Other than that I watched some more episodes of The Irregular at Magic High School. It was kinda a slow day.

I’ll talk about the Artemis Fowl series. It’s an 8 book series about Artemis Fowl, a genius middle school student who wants to make back the money his family had lost. He decides to do this by stealing from the fairies, who he had found out were real. He kidnaps a LEPRecon (Lower Elements Police, Recon division, because they live underground) Captain, Holly Short. The first book has him against LEPRecon, but they’re on sort of the same side after that. I like the series a lot and am looking forward to the movie I heard about next year.

Hope to have more tomorrow!

Sunday

Today was more Escape from the Hokage’s Hat and episode of The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for The Unseen Hunt and two short omakes for Taylor Varga. Other than that I worked on the Let’s Go, Meltan PoGo tasks and finally got to the fifth set with needing to do 10 raids tomorrow to complete it and a few chapters of Mists of a Dawning Sky.

Since I, once again, have very little, I’ll talk about the Outlander series. Outlander is a book series about Claire Randall who is having a second honeymoon with her husband Frank (after WWI) in Scotland. She goes through a stone circle and ends up in 1743 and gets caught up in the Scots revolt of the time. She meets Jamie Fraser and has to make a decision: try and get back to her time or live her life here. There are eight books out now with at least one more on the way. I like this book series and the TV series follows it well (overly so in some cases).

R Rated Content

There is sex in the series, but the main warning I’ll give is that there is a graphic scene in both the book and TV series where there is a male raping another male. Just to give fair warning.

R Rated Content

That’s it for today, see everyone where I post tomorrow.

Monday

Today, I finished rereading Mists of the Dawning Sky, finished watching the first (and currently only) season of The Irregular at Magic High School and completed the Let’s Go, Meltan quests (even though I already had more than a few Meltans from sending Pokémon to Let’s Go). There were new chapters for Reincarnation Roulette, Mauling Snarks and Seerking’s Asylum. I read some more sakurademonalchemist again.

I reread their story, ‘Flames of the Black Cat,’ which is a Black Cat and KHR crossover. Black Cat is about a Sweeper (bounty hunter) named Train Heartnet who is a former member of an assassination organization called Chronos. He and his companions have to fight against Chronos and later his former best friend’s (who killed his girlfriend for changing him from an assassin) organization. I like both the anime and manga and definitely recommend it.

The story has Train reincarnating as female Tsuna, who has a male twin. Realizing he/she’ll be in a bad situation later, Train leaves and becomes a hit woman (though she hides her gender). Watch as she changes the plan of the Vongola just by existing and finds a few more reincarnated friends, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12918478/1/Flames-of-the-Black-Cat.

The other story I reread was ‘Fated Bonds,’ which is a Fate/Stay Night and Naruto crossover. It has Archer Emiya summoned along with the Shinigami. He leads a life as a blacksmith in Konoha until he finds his ‘summoner’ a young Naruto. He takes Naruto in and helps change Sasuke’s fate. Find out how by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12288979/1/Fated-Bonds.

Finally, I read ‘The Witch of 221b Baker Street,’ which is a Sherlock and Harry Potter crossover. It has Female Harry becoming disillusioned by the magical world after 4th year and getting away rather than being used. She becomes Joanne Watson and ends up as Sherlock’s roommate. You can find the story, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12245680/1/The-Witch-of-221b-Baker-Street.

There was also a new chapter for a story by ack1308 called ‘Another Way.’ It’s a Worm story where Amy (or Amelia in this case) is never taken from her father (because he isn’t captured). She grows up as a supervillain’s daughter and it changes her. Read how by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11481821/1/Another-Way.

Sherlock is a 3 episode per season, British TV series that has Sherlock in modern London. It’s okay, but has a habit of leaving the audience at a cliffhanger for a while (There was some time between season 1 and 2 if I remember correctly).

There was also a new chapter of a story by Kenichi618 called ‘Shinobi of the High Seas.’ It’s a Naruto and One Piece crossover where Naruto is immortal and after some time looking after the Elemental Nations, (he leaves Konoha to be a protector of the EN when he finds out he’s immortal. He never had a family with Hinata) he decides to see the rest of the world. He eventually meets Luffy early on his (Luffy’s) journey and hangs out with him for a while. He gets his own ship and crew. Find out how he interacts with the One Piece world here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6314806/1/Shinobi-of-the-High-Seas.

I’m writing this before I head out to a showing of the new Pokémon movie – “The Power of Us” and will write a little about it when I get back before I post this. Which will be here –

I really liked it, the movie did a good job of mixing Pokémon and real world problems everyone has. One of the main ones, and relevant to most people, is that lies only cause problems, not solve them. Lies cause a lot of the problems in the movie that could have easily been avoided otherwise. I would definitely recommend The Power of Us. It’s showing in select theaters on the 28th and the 2nd. There still might be tickets left if you want to see it (there were less than 10 people including me in the theater tonight). Hope you like it too!

Thanks for reading and see everyone on Thursday!

 

Yes, There are A Lot of New Original Stories in this One! (Mostly Because of sakurademonalchemist)

Tuesday

So finished rereading the last part of Black Sky and am looking forward to the author putting more out soon (hopefully). I also read a few more chapters of Ashes of the Past (early 50’s) because I’ve seen new chapters but I want to finish rereading first. There were updates for It’s in the Cards, Queen of the Seas, A Ninja Summoned, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, and Seerking’s Asylum. I spend the rest of the day reading stories by sakurademonalchemist and watching shows from the Who-verse.

I decided to read some stories by sakurademonalchemist that I hadn’t before and the first one was ‘Demonic Jewels.’ It’s a KHR AU (Alternate Universe) where there are Demons and the female Tsuna is training to become a jewel summoner. She ends up as Hibari’s roommate because no one else will. It’s interesting and I like it. If you want to read (just remember that this author rarely finishes stories) it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12877054/1/Demonic-Jewels.

The next one is called ‘Wrathful Skies’ and is a Harry Potter and KHR crossover. The female Harry is Xanxus’ half sister and calls Krampus to her neighborhood one Christmas when she’s young. She runs away and becomes ferial with Sky flames and a wolf partner. Squalo finds her and takes her back to the Varia where things become interesting. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12457722/1/Wrathful-Skies,

Then was ‘Partners in Crime’ which is another Harry Potter and KHR crossover. It has a young Harry being abandoned in Itay and finds a young (female) Belphegor and they team up to steal. After killing a high up Varia officer, Xanxus comes and recruits them. Watch as things change here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12419551/1/Partners-in-Crime.

After that, there was ‘Queen of Conquerors’ which is a Harry Potter and Type Moon Universe crossover. It has a young female Harry being transported to the time of Alexander the Conqueror and is adopted as his daughter. She grows up and is his heir before she is called back to her time for the Triwizard Tournament. Watch as her upbringing affects the wizarding world, just click this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12168885/1/Queen-of-Conquerors.

Continuing, there was ‘Here in an Instant, Gone in a Flash’ which is a triple crossover. It has Harry as the main character, includes the DC TV Universe and has The Librarian TV movie elements too. When Ripper chases Harry into the tree (when he was young, see Book 3), it’s struck by lightning and he gains speedster powers. He then becomes the Magical Librarian (the other Librarian still gets his own job later) and eventually goes to Central City before the events of The Flash. There’s more too it, but that’s the jist of it. It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12213589/1/Here-in-an-Instant-Gone-in-a-Flash.

Let’s take a quick break to talk about the DC TV Universe and The Librarian. The DC TV Universe consists of Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Arrow is about the Green Arrow and his return to his city and taking care of the criminals there. Eventually, The Flash comes in and Barry gets his speedster powers. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes villains and heroes from both series and has them travel through time to take out an immortal villain. Supergirl is about Supergirl and her debut, but eventually connects to the others.  (I know it’s kinda short, but there is a lot in the DC TV Universe.  Cut me a break).

Then there’s The Librarian. It’s about Flynn Carsen, who is kicked out of Uni after getting 20 degrees. He then interviews to become The Librarian (not that he knows what that is at first) and gets the job. He is then sent on an adventure and everything he knows helps him. There were originally three TV movies, but eventually they made a series about it called The Librarians. He activates three others who could have been The Librarian and they form a team.

I’ll cut the sakurademonalchemist stories for now and talk about more tomorrow so I can talk about the Who-verse things I watched. I watched the Doctor Who TV movie, “Planet of the Dead.” It has the Doctor joining a group of people on a bus (including a thief the police are chasing) that is transported to a planet where there’s only sand. They try to get back through the portal, but danger lurks in the distance. The Doctor also gets and ominous warning, “Your song is ending” and “He will knock four times”. Dun, Dun, DUN!

Then I watched the (technical) third season of Torchwood. It’s essentially a five part mini-series called “Torchwood: The Children of Earth.” It has the children of Earth stopping several times and telling people that ‘We are coming.’ An alien race is coming and they want children to make them go away. Watch as the Torchwood and the government clash and try and make them go away.

I also voted today! Not going to talk politics (because it makes people crazy, no really some people on both sides really need to grow up and stop the blame game), but it’s a right people need to exercise and I did!

That’s all I’ll talk about today see you tomorrow! Allon-y, as they say!

Wednesday

So today was mostly me reading the first three The Irregular at Magic High School novels and starting the fourth. Since I mentioned it last post it made me want to reread them. There were new chapters for Demon Lord of the End (the real third chapter), Burning Ice, The Healing Touch and Heroes Assemble! I also learned that Seerking is taking a break from his schedule until the 21ist.

I reread a Quatermass story called ‘Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, Ashikabi’s Life for Me.’ It’s a Sekirei and Pirates of Caribbean (I’m not gonna explain this one, look it up and watch it if you don’t know it. Well, at least the first one, the rest are take it or leave it) crossover. It has Captian Jack Sparrow being reincarnated into Minato. This changes many things. Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510813/1/Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho-An-Ashikabi-s-Life-for-Me. (I might have talked about this one, but whatever.  I should probably make a list of the series and fanfiction I’ve already recommended) That’s really all for today, but there are things I need to finish from yesterday (there was a lot yesterday and there’s more).

The last of the new stories (for me) from sakurademonalchemist was ‘Trick Hunt.’ It’s an Avengers (MCU) and Supernatural crossover. Supernatural is a popular demon hunting show following Dean and Sam Winchester who are ‘Hunters.’ They hunt and destroy things that hunt humans. Originally they’re looking for their dad, but things change. It has over 13 seasons and is still going.

The story has Loki being sent into a human body without his memories by Odin after the first movie as repentance. God sees this and changes his body to Dean Winchester. When Dean is brought back at the beginning of Season 3, Loki is awakened and he and Dean work to together to solve their problems. Oh, did I mention that he’s back before he attacked New York as well?  See how things are changed here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11805656/1/Trick-Hunt.

I also got a new chapter for a sakurademonalchemist story yesterday called ‘Flames of the Night Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha crossover. Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (from now on called Lyrical Nanoha) is about an elementary school girl (Nanoha Takamichi) who finds a magical ferret (from space and who is really a shape shifting young boy) named Yuuno. He wants her to find the Jewel Seeds that were on his crashed ship. However, there is another young named Fate who wants them as well. There are currently five seasons and four movies (the movies are a separate universe, with the first two covering the first two seasons and the third and fourth being a new story based on a games), though the fourth movie hasn’t aired in the US yet.

The story has Tsuna’s mom dying young and his dad cannot be contacted, so Tsuna ends up being adopted by his mom’s friends, the Takamichis. There gets mixed up in the events of Lyrical Nanoha and meets Xanxus and his crew. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12455154/1/Flames-of-a-Night-Sky.

I also started rereading a sakurademonalchemist story called ‘Queen’s Redemption.’ It’s a KHR and Once Upon a Time crossover. Once Upon a Time is a show about a universe called ‘The Enchanted Forrest,’ where fairy tales originate from. However, there are many differences. It starts with Snow White and Prince Charming’s wedding, where the Evil Queen promises to take away their happy endings. She sets up a spell that transports everyone to a ‘world without magic’ (ya know, our world) and the only one who can break it is Snow’s and Charming’s daughter on her 28th birthday. They send her ahead as a baby before the spell hits. They are stuck in a time loop (without their memories) in Storybrook until Emma (their daughter) shows up. Watch as she helps them break the curse with the help of the son she gave up, Henry (who is the Evil Queen’s adopted son).

The story has Regina (the Evil Queen) getting hit by a curse by Snow right before the original curse that makes her a child. She grows up into Lal Mitch and regains her memories when the Arcobaleno curse hits. I read some yesterday and some today (but not finished rereading yet). See how things change here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12755096/1/Queen-s-Redemption.

That finishes yesterday as well (you can see why I split it right?). I’ll post tomorrow, see you then!

Thursday

Today I read the fourth through sixth novels of The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for Celestial Worm and Code Geass: Lionheart of the Revolution. I read more chapters for Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me and Queen’s Revenge, but haven’t finished either yet.

I reread a one shot by kb0 called ‘Harry’s Happy Christmas.’ It’s a Harry Potter story that has Harry meeting Santa in a mall ‘Meet Santa’ area and asking for help ending the war. Read as his wish is granted in an interesting way, at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8830812/1/Harry-s-Happy-Christmas.

The only other thing I started rereading was ‘Run With You’ by mltrefry. It’s a Doctor Who Season 3 rewrite where Rose manages to hold on and stays with The Doctor. There are also sequels where the story continues, but I haven’t finished rereading this one yet. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11312389/1/Run-With-You.

That concludes this post and I’ll see everyone on Monday next week!
