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?

*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!

Quest Week (and I’m on Time!)

Hello everyone!  I’m on time today, so yay!  More Taylor Varga and From Fake Dreams this week.  Another one full of work, including a ‘half’ day today.  With the Chicago Go Fest happening, shiny Pokémon are more prevalent and Horsea and Abra (maybe Clefairy) are now shiny.  The new chapters this week are: Seerking’s Asylum (Mon & Thurs), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Worm – Waterworks, Game On! 3 1, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Heroes Assemble!, Red String, Short Story Drabbles, Demon Skylark, Titanfall, Archer, Ginny’s Plan, Are You Afraid of the Dark? & Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo.

There’s not much this week, so I’ll just get to the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 51 was Rose Potter and the Mirror of Fate.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Rose Potter is Harry’s hidden twin sister.  They run into each other on their birthday before first year at Diagon Alley.  It only really covers them shopping and going to the Weasley’s house.  It’s okay, but short.

Chapter 52 is Juniper Rose Potter is a Prankster.  It’s a two-chapter story where Fem. Harry has both her parents and is heading to Hogwarts.  On the train she meets Ginny and they vow themselves to each other.  It doesn’t go much past a different sorting hat song.

Chapter 53 is King of Bandit.  It’s the longest story so far (I know a longer one later as I looked ahead) at 28 chapters originally.  It’s a Harry Potter, Breathe of Fire and Dragon Ball Z crossover (though I don’t really know how DBZ fits in).  Harry’s parents live, but his twin is thought to be the girl-who-lived.  Harry is ignored and runs away at a young age.  He meets the King of Bandit and is trained by him.  He comes back around 6th year for a stealing job and becomes the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher (but very different).  He gets together with Luna, Ginny and an Original Character and sets his sister and Hermione up with OCs.  It’s good, I’ve read it before and I’m sad to see it in here.

Chapter 54 is Hunters Guild and is a sort of reworked version of the previous story.  It was six-chapters and is okay.  Harry is taken by the ‘Hunters Guild’ when it’s learned he’s not wanted and is trained by them.  After several people from the guild give up on protecting his sister because of idiots around them, Harry’s given the job.  Essentially the same pairings I assume.

Chapter 55 is Order of the Covenant.  It was a Harry Potter one-shot where the Potter triplets are split up to protect them and meet up on their birthday before Hogwarts.  The ‘Girl-Who-Lived’ was not supposed to go to the Dursleys, but Dumbles interfered.  Can’t tell how good it is because it’s only a chapter.

Chapter 56 is Demonic Wars.  It was a Cardcaptor Sakura and Sailor Moon (though it’s not shown) one-shot.  In the second series, Sakura is attacked by a demon after she turns Watery.  This leads her to liking Tomoyo(?) and running away to protect her family.  Like I said, no Sailor Moon yet.

Chapter 57 is Fade into the Shadows.  It was an eleven-chapter Twilight story.  Before Bella goes to Forks she learns she’s a reincarnated ninja and retrains herself.  Same basic plot except that Edward and Alice switch places (yes that means he’s with Jasper, get over it).  Things are different, but you’ll have to read to find out.

Chapter 58 is Uncharted Void.  It was a five-chapter Harry Potter and Skulduggery Pleasant crossover (though once again, no Skulduggery Pleasant in it as far as I know).  When Harry goes down the pipe to save Ginny in CoS, he ends up far deeper than he expected.  He fights ancient creatures and learns things before he fights Tom.  Skips most of third year and is changing the timeturner incident like the CoS.

Chapter 59 is Fallen Star. It was a two-chapter Twilight story.  It’s a stupid little one where after Edward dumps her she gets powers (from a meteorite?) and ends up gathering girls to have sex with and fight evil and stupidity (I think).  Yeah, don’t really like this one.

Chapter 60 is Fairytail World Tour.  It’s was Harry Potter and Fairy Tale(?) one-shot.  While at the DoM in Year 5 Harry ends up in the world of Fairy Tales, but things are very different.  Can he fix things, who knows, it’s only a chapter.

That’s it for today, thanks for reading and hope you have a great week.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Lot of Updated Chapters Week (along with some Shield Hero and the Quest)

Hello my readers!  It’s been a normal week for me, but that’s not what you want to hear.  I’ve spent some time reading through The Rising of a Shield Hero web novel, but I haven’t finished it yet.  I watched the newest episode of the anime and it’s very different, I mean the spear hero honestly seemed to believe the shield hero was framed.  That doesn’t happen until much later in the web novel at least (no idea about the light novel).  Anyway, listened to more Death March and evolved some new Pokémon on PoGo (still have a few to evolve, but that will take more time catching (if I can find them), walking or rare candies.

Anyway, the new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel (one chapter and an info chap), How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave My My Quirk, History Strongest Disciple Again?, Jaune Ryu-Long, The Dragon Contractor, Mending the Knots, The Unseen Hunt, Stories of Fate, Demon Skylark (Sun, Mon & Tues), Famgilia Drabbles, Under the Sea, Black Sky (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri), Spirit Fire, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Devil Ninja, Ginny’s Plan, Son of Holmes, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Swordsaint, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, The Goblet of Fire’s Trap, Go Away I’m Watching Porn, Seerking’s Asylum, Titanfall, Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right, Marvel’s Maelstrom & Taylor Varga. (A lot this week, right?)

I started reading megamatt09’s crack fic (meaning crazy/making fun of things fanfiction) Deadpool’s New Job.  It’s a silly fic set in the Harry Potter universe where Deadpool ends up as Filch’s assistant before Harry’s first year.  Things go very differently … I’ve only convinced myself to read a few chapters, but it’s mostly nonsense.

I also started reading a fic I refound called RWBY: Destiny of Remnant by UGX7.  It’s an RWBY fic in reaction to the end of Vol. 3 so there’s not much elements of the volumes past it in it (at least yet).  Jaune, Nora, Ren and Ruby are going after Cinder in Mistral, but they meet a mysterious man a little before they get there looking for his sister.  With his help they find her, but is there more to him than what there seems (yes).  Also, what really happened to a certain character?

I read (what’s out) of Playing our Roles by The Grim Blade.  It’s an RWBY and The Gamer crossover where someone from our world ends up in the body of (younger) Roman Torchwick.  He decides to follow the path to become a great thief, but he has to prove himself and find his future partner.  With his Gamer abilities, will he be able to do it?

Moving on the Myrddin de Celestis quest, Chapter 31 is Avoiding Fate.  It was a two-chapter Naruto fic.  In it, Naruto wakes up in the past after his fight with Sasuke in the Valley of the End and discovered he dreamed it all.  However, his dream is proven right when he’s able to escape from an attack based on its knowledge.  He escapes and is adopted by Tenten’s dad.  Not much here, but it’s not bad.

Chapter 32 is Bridge to the EvoNet.  It’s a Harry Potter and Stargate crossover.  It was another two-chapter fic.  The first is a long-winded connection between the Stargate past and Harry Potter past.  The second is about an ignored Harry (what else?) about to start his schooling.  Could be okay, but not enough here to say.

Chapter 33 is Fallen Heaven.  It was a one-chapter Twilight fic.  Bella is bitten by James, but becomes a Vampire Creator (yeah, cliché much).  She gets together with Alice … that is all.

Chapter 34 is Carbon Blades.  It was a four-chapter Harry Potter, Avengers and MCU crossover.  Fem-Harry ends up married to X23 (Wolverne’s ‘daughter’) in Vegas.  They spend way too much time recapping their lives and are then drafted into the Avenger (pre-Avengers).  The last chapter is leading up to the first Avengers movie.

Chapter 35 is Collision Course.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter and Twilight crossover.  It has Fem-Harry learning that Bella and her mom are cousins and going to live with them after fifth year.  When Bella’s mom dies, they go to Forks and clash with the Cullens.  Looks like the cannon pairing of Bella/Edward is there, but Fem-Harry is set up with Alice (though Ginny is also her girlfriend, but not really in the story, yet).

Chapter 36 is Deal to be Reaping.  It was a single-chapter Harry Potter fic.  In it, Fem-Harry dies to protect like in book 7 but learns it’s her seventh death.  He says he’ll send her back with her memories and that she has soul-mates, all female.  It’s okay, but only one chapter.

Chapter 37 is Distorted Time.  It was a single-chapter Harry Potter and Doctor Who crossover.  Harry is The Doctor’s son and Jenny (from The Doctor’s Daughter) and Susan (from the original seasons) come to him to have him fix the TARDIS they have.  Could be good, but like I said, its only one chapter.

Chapter 38 is Flip.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter fic.  In it Harry finds a weird coin and decides to make all of his choices based on the flip of the coin.  It’s not bad, just, like I’ve said, not long enough to really see how it would go.

Chapter 39 is Lunar Eclipse.  It was a two-chapter Twilight fic.  Bella is ill around the ‘were’-wolves and when Jacob attacks her, is transformed into a Siren.  She eats girl flesh, in both ways, and yeah, not a really big fan of this one.

Chapter 40 is Seven Dark Emperors.  It was a nine-chapter Harry Potter fic.  Voldemort goes to awaken the Seven Dark Emperors in the hopes they’ll help him take over the world.  However, the first one rejects him and goes to train Harry.  It’s interesting and a Harry/Ginny Fic.  Even Luna gets someone (the emperor).

Chapter 41 is 7 Dark Emperors.  It’s a carbon copy of the first but is a crossover with Skulduggery Pleasant Series.  It’s only three chapters, but the emperor plans to set Harry up with Valkyrie (along with Ginny, later).

That’s it for this week, hope everyone has a great coming week.  Don’t forget next Saturday is the Slakoth PoGo community day!  As always, May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Anime Week (and the New Quest Continues)

Hey peoples!  It’s once again time for Matt’s ramblings!  It’s been a pretty boring week, but at least my hours are back up again.  Yay!  I’ve mostly been rereading (more like listening) to Death March web novel.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, Less Than Zero, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mauling Snarks (Sat, Mon & Fri), The Unseen Hunt, The Rising of the Shield Heroine, Celestial Worm, Seerking’s Asylum, Ginny’s Plan, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Naruto: The Game of Life, Titanfall and Taylor Varga (Omake).

I participated in the Torchic Community Day for PoGo even though I wasn’t feeling the greatest, but I still got seven shinies!  It’s raid week and tomorrow there’ll be three hours where Lapras will be available as a raid boss continually and it has a shiny chance!  I watched the new anime The Rising of the Shield Hero and was honestly not that impressed (especially with the last few episodes).  I’ve read the chapters that depict that battle and they drew out it, a lot.  Though I have to say I’m looking for to the next episode where some characters get their comeuppance (read the princess and the King)!

I also watched what’s out for the anime Wise Man’s Grandson.  It’s another transported to another world anime based off a light novel.  It has a man get reborn into a new world when he dies and is taught magic by his adopted grandfather (who is very famous, but never tells the main character).   He’s very powerful by the time he becomes 15, but he’s never taught anything about the common sense of the world.  Watch as he goes to Magic Academy and changes the world!

Finally (for this part) I watched the first season of Overlord (another anime from a light novel based on a transported person).  This one has a gamer whose favorite game is shutting down.  He’s the last of his guild around and decides to stay online until the server is shut down.  He changes a line in an NPC, saying that she’s in love with him.  When the server is shut down, he and the base are transported to a new world.  The NPC’s come to life and he is stuck as a Lich.  He investigates the world and plans to spread the name of his guild Aniz Ooal Gown so if others of his guild are there, they’ll find him.  There are now three seasons and 13 light novels out now.

I’ll do the new fanfics before the quest stories.  The author of Mauling Snarks (CmptrWz) has a new story, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?  It’s a Worm and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  A broken Unison device from Belka finds Taylor triggering and finding her a good match (magically) ‘eats’ the Shard.  It’s interesting even though there are only three chapters so far.

Next, I read Overlord – Lich and Vampire by Seerking (because I was watching the anime).  It’s the same, except another guild member logs on not long before the server shuts down and is also transported with everyone.  Watch as she changes things (though not much since it’s only five chapters and hasn’t been updated since 2017).

Then, sakurademonalchemist came out with a new story (though I know it from a compliation fic), Demon Skylark.  It’s a KHR and Naruto crossover where Kyouya is reborn (lol) into Naruto Uzumaki.  He hates Konoha because it’s full of fake carnavores and he runs away to Suna.  There he meets Fem Gaara (Gaia) and they become close.  Only one chapter so far.

Onto the quest with Myrddin de Celestis, Chapter 20 is Ruby’s Fate.  It was a two-chapter RWBY and Harry Potter crossover.  Fem. Harry leaves her universe and ends up in the RWBY one.  There’s not much here, but she ends up helping them during the end of season 2.

Chapter 21 is Hidden Paths.  It was an eight-chapter Harry Potter story where after Dumbledore dies, Harry discovers that Dumbles sealed away much of his potential.  It starts coming back to him in segments.  He and Ginny train to put an end to the war.  Then Dumbles returns.  It’s okay but needs some editing.  Chapter 22 (Impossible Awakening) is a different version of the first chapter (it’s better, but darker).

Chapter 23 is GHOST.  It was a seven-chapter Harry Potter and Danny Phantom crossover.  Danny Phantom is a really great cartoon that ended too abruptly.  It’s about Danny Fenton, whose parents are ghost hunters.  They build a ghost portal, but it doesn’t work.  Danny accidentally fixes it, but becomes half ghost.  He uses his ghost form to fight and capture the ghosts.  As I said, they ended things really fast.  I wish they had continued it.

Harry almost dies saving a kid and awakens his ghost side.  He uses it to reveal the dark side of Hogwarts.  Along with finding a painting with two more founders.  It’s an okay one, but not the greatest.  Chapter 24 (Spirit of the Phantasm) is the same, but different and was started after this one.  It focuses on going to the Greengrass house first.

Chapter 25 is Time Will Tell.  It was a Harry Potter story with five chapters.  In it, Harry and Ginny have lived to a future where the war is lost.  They use an artifact to go back in time but end up in their baby bodies.  Not much, but it’s not bad.

Chapter 26 is Shifters.  I’ve read this one a while back and it was fun.  It was a twelve-chapter Harry Potter and Negima crossover.  It has Harry discovering he is a shifter after second year and can change into anyone he touches.  He fakes his death and makes a new identity (Eva from Negima) to give Ginny a friend.  They bring changes to Hogwarts.  Chapter 27 (TransShift) is a Christmas 5th year version where he doesn’t fake his death.  It’s three chapters, but no Negima crossover.

Chapter 28 is Copykitten.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  It has Fem. Harry being hidden as a male from everyone (including herself).  She has mystical eyes that allow her to copy everything she sees, including spells.  Doesn’t get much past her going into the Leaky Cauldron.

Chapter 29 is Balance in the Power of Gaia.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry is under a spell that causes people/creatures to fall in love with him.  He rebels and ends up at the Creeveys.  It’s kinda meh in my opinon.

The last one I’ll talk about is Chapter 30, Avenge the Lost.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter, MCU and Avengers crossover.  Harry is the brother of the Boy-Who-Lived and when Death Eaters ‘kill’ his youngest sister (she is brought back but doesn’t have control of her magic) he claims he’ll have vengeance and runs away.  He meets Black Widow and they have a brief fling.  Years later, he returns and starts taking out DEs.  It ends with Fury sending Black Widow after Harry for the Avenger Initiative.

That’s it for today.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next week.  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!

These Fics Almost Made Me Give Up the Quest …

Hello everyone, it’s once again time for Matt’s Wheezing Waffle (thank you Harry Potter). I’ve continued rereading Honestly Harry – The Year of the Spares (and I forgot to mention that it does have some M rated scenes) and started rereading Gun Bunny. The new chapters this week are: Better Left Unsaid, Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2, Heroes Assemble!, Raptor of the 20th Ward (Thurs & Fri), Titanfall, The Healing Touch, Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right, Devil Ninja and Mauling Snarks.

I read a new fic I’d seen before, but hadn’t read called Cage by Racheakt. It’s a Worm fic where things are slightly different. Taylor’s Dad is dead instead of her Mom and it seems Legend and Hero also switched places in dying. Taylor triggers in the alley and is sent to an insane asylum. There she meets Burnscar and Labyrinth, how will things change with a Thinker Taylor?

Back to the quest, but it’s getting closer to the end as we’ve reached the longest year change between sakurademonalchemist’s fics. Last post we went through the fics last updated in 2010, but they didn’t write anything from Mar 2007 to Mar 2010. So, now we work on those fic of theirs posted before 2007; and I have to say, I’m glad their writing improved … Yeah, I had a lot of trouble getting through these, even though they have shorter chapters and also mostly unfinished. As I said, I almost gave up the quest, but I persevered (because I don’t give up!) [I’ve also just realized that I put the wrong link for Untainted Wings last post and on the archive. It has been fixed now.]

Once again ignoring the starters (first, second, next and all that jazz [name that movie!]), Deceptive Angels is a D.N.Angel fic that is crossed over with Trinity Blood. Satoshi and Daisuke end up in the Trinity Blood world and end up with the church. I don’t know much about Trinity Blood and the fic doesn’t make me want to know more (but then again it’s only three chapters long).  Mentions of future Daisuke and Satoshi relationship, Don’t Like, Don’t Read.

From what I’ve looked up, in Trinity Blood is a light novel series turned manga and anime where humans went to Mars and discovered viruses that turned them into vampires and a few into ‘angels.’ There was an apocalyptic event on earth and the Mars people had to go back and repopulate it. It’s set 900 years later.

The evil twin scenario is a crossover between Whistle and The Prince of Tennis. Whistle is a manga turned anime about a boy named Sho who loves soccer. However because he is short and is not that great at it, he transfers to a different school as he couldn’t get on the team in the first one. It’s about his getting on the team and working to become the Ace of the team.

The Prince of Tennis (which got me interested in tennis, though I don’t play much and am not that good) is a manga turned anime about Ryoma Echizen, a talented young player who is just starting middle school and plans to join the team. He is thought of as an upstart until he proves his talent by getting on the main team his first year, a previously unheard of feat. It’s the story of him and his team trying to win the Nationals.

In the fic, Sho has a twin sister who is better at soccer than him. She runs away when he says she hates him and meets Ryoma. She’s dragged back to her home, but joins the tennis team instead of staying with soccer. She decides to go to the same school as Ryoma, but hide as a boy. Will Sho and her past catch up to her? Yeah, it’s complicated and everyone acts older than they are.

The girl he could never have is a D.N.Angel fic where a transfer student comes from America. She has no interest in Dark, though he does in her. She’s also more interested in Satoshi and Krad. A ten chapter, boring fic.

Dark’s evil dare is another D.N. Angel fic that went on for a long time (42 blessedly short chapters), but was also boring. Dark dares Krad to live as a normal human in class and helps get him a body to do that. Things get weird and there’s some personality switching, but it doesn’t make it much better as things get confusing. It’s supposedly finished, but it was kinda a stupid ending. Mentions of gay relationships, but not much. Don’t Like, Don’t Read.

A brother’s love is a short little four chapter story set in the Bleach universe. What happens? Rukia has a bad dream about Hollow rabbits and Ichigo’s Hollow and Byakuya comforts her. … Yeah, it’s four very short chapters that all could have been in one (I mean she calls it a one-shot, it should only be one chapter). Nothing happens other than comforting; it’s quite frankly one of the worst stories I’ve read on here (that actually has at least mostly good grammar. There are worst ones, believe me).

The Wolfbane Alchemist is a InuYasha and Fullmetal Alchemist crossover (though the InuYasha bit is really only the first chapter). Sesshomaru’s daughter gets reborn into the FMA world as Edward’s sister. This eventually makes her brother’s half-demons. Its eight chapters are mostly about controlling their powers and the main story in FMA is barely starting where it currently is.

Power of a Forgotten Heart is a D.N.Angel fic with a fictional past of the Niwa’s and Hikari’s. One of the Niwa’s is a female fortuneteller and many Hikari’s are sent to kill her. When one is sent who doesn’t believe in what the Hikari’s say, will he hurt her or help her? It’s finished, but goes off on tangents and doesn’t always make sense.

Gundam Fight is a crossover with Gundam Wing and SD Gundam characters ending up in the G Gundam universe and the Gundam fight. SD Gundam is a silly little anime about human sized Gundams based on the ones from original series. I really wouldn’t recommend it. Anyway, the eight chapters mostly has the SD Gundams getting beat up because the original Gundams don’t like them.

That’s it for today, I’ll probably finish most of the rest next post (except for ones I skipped because I want to look into the anime/books they were based on and the compilation fics). Yeah, I don’t expect them to get any better. The new 5 Tier Raid Boss for PoGo is Giratina (Origin Forme), so be sure to go out and get him! As always, 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!
