It’s Almost Zeraora Time!

Tuesday

Today, I finished Harry and Ginny: A Love Story and watched more of Log Horizon. Well, I got to where it’s currently up to at chapter 33. Like I said yesterday, it hasn’t been updated since 2015, but other story have been posted/updated by the author. The only new chapter today was from Service with a Smile.

With my rewatching of Log Horizon (I looked it up and the light novel finally got a new book out recently after a few years), I decided to look up some of it’s fanfiction. Both of them are about them trying to get home. The first one ‘A Gate Home’ by knaka148 started last year and is only two chapters. In it the two opposing guilds work together to get home. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12558038/1/A-Gate-Home.

The second one is an older one written in 2016 and is finished. It’s called ‘Horizon Breach’ by GBRK.   It has them using blank summoning to send people back. However, they still have their powers… See how things turn out, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11936165/1/Horizon-Breach.

After that, I started rereading an old favorite of mine that had its sequel end relatively recently, ‘Fate’s Gamble’ by Lupine Horror. At its base it’s a Type Moon and Harry Potter crossover, because it has elements from several Type Moon stories. However, because of the Kaleidoscope (and Zelretch insanity) there are a few other stories represented (even if it’s not until later in the story). I really liked this one and enjoyed it and its sequel, ‘Fate’s Gamble: Round Two.’

In the story, Zelretch trying to connect to world’s he’s not on/has died in. He does it wrong and Fate uses the unused power to change several Harry’s destinies. The one the story is about has Harry (age 5) ending up on the Shapeless Isle (the Gorgon’s home. Ya know from Greek Mythology) in Zelretch’s universe. There he meets Stheno and Euryale (Medusa’s sisters, if ya didn’t know) and becomes Zelretch and Waver’s (a least he has one human influence) student. Read what happens when this Harry goes to Hogwarts, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9586702/1/Fate-s-Gamble and here’s Lupine Horror’s link – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4199791/Lupine-Horror.

Today was also the release of Gen 4 Pokémon on PoGo! They only released the starters and a few of the beginning Pokémon, but it’s a start. Though I wonder where the rest of Gen 3 is? Who knows, I certainly don’t.

That’s it for today, see you tomorrow.

Wednesday

Today was mostly rereading Fate’s Gamble and finishing the first season of Log Horizon. There were a few more new chapters than yesterday including: Harry Potter and the Stargate, several Game On! 3 0 chapters (that finished it off. 4 0 should be next in Yu Yu Hakusho) and Heroes Assemble! and Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Bugging Me (I’m going to call this SAfPBtWSBM … yeah no, how about just Seerking’s Asylum, that works).

Then there was the update for Seerking’s next story on the rotation, ‘Kaien’s Fate, Aizen’s Experiment and Ichigo’s Sister.’ It’s a Bleach story about Kirika, a young soul girl who Aizen and his crew used (along with many others) in an experiment to implant a part of Kaien’s zanpakuto and Metastacia’s energy into another soul. She was the only one to survive and got to the Living World. She’s adopted by the Kurosaki’s and becomes a slightly younger sister to Ichigo before his mother’s attacked. She wants revenge on Aizen’s group and will do anything to get it. See how she changes things here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973625/1/Kaien-s-Fate-Aizen-s-Experiment-and-Ichigo-s-Sister.

Other than that, I watched the 6th Detective Conan Movie – The Phantom of Baker Street. It has a VR game that gets taken over by an A.I. who wants the game to be finished to solve a murder. I also learned that Wildbow, the writer of Worm, has started a sequel called “Ward.” As I still haven’t read Worm, I’m not gonna read it yet, but thought those who have read it would like to know.

Nothing more for today, post is tomorrow (IT WILL BE).

Thursday

Today was more Fate’s Gamble. I also started rereading one of kb0’s older stories, ‘Harry Potter: Choices.’ It has Harry deciding that he has choices the summer after Fifth year. He decides to take control of his life, starting with who his magical guardian is. This is a Harry/Ginny Soul Bond story. It’s finished and I like it a lot. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8820097/1/Harry-Potter-Choices.

In yesterday’s Seerking’s Asylum (see isn’t that easier), Seerking mentioned that The Aura King adopted one of his Plot Bunnies. The one called ‘Demon Lord of the Swarm’ (it’s chapters 86 -90 of Seerking’s Asylum) and they renamed it – ‘Demon Lord of the End.’ It has Taylor, after the end of Worm, becoming a Demon Lord in charge of a dungeon. She has to make sure she’s not defeated or the world (the new one, not the Worm one) will be destroyed.   There are two chapters and it was only started on the 4th of this month, so I’m looking forward to a fairly regular update schedule (hopefully). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13084089/1/Demon-Lord-of-the-End.

I watched the 10th Detective Conan Movie – The Private Eye’s Requiem. It has Conan and the crew forced to solve a case or they and their friends will be blow up by watches they put on for a theme park. Didn’t do much more than that.

Oh yeah, I figured I would mention that Zeraora (the newest mythical Pokémon) would be available via code for Game Stop (In America at least) starting tomorrow (again only in America, everyone else has been able to get it for most of this month) til sometime next month (presumablely until before the Let’s Go games come out). Reshiram and Zekrom will also be available until the 28th (of this month) starting tomorrow at Target. This is for the Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games only. Figured people would want to know. https://www.serebii.net/ is where I find this info if anyone wants to know. It won’t remention the above info until tomorrow, but it will be there.

Since I have a few extra minutes, Yu Yu Hakusho is about Yusuke Urameshi, a delinquent.  He dies sacrifices himself to save a kid from a car, only to learn it was pointless.  The kid would have survived and no one (not even the afterlife) expected him to do anything.  Now he gets a chance to come back to life, but even if he does; his life will be changed forever.

See everyone on Monday!

The Long (Holiday) Weekend

Friday

Today I continued rereading Legion, but I didn’t finish and only got to chapter 20. There were some new chapters that I read for Queen of the Seas, Cambion, Mauling Snarks and Parva Sub Ingenti. I also played some Pokémon Sun.

As I might have mentioned in my first post, I have all of the Pokémon on the main games in my Pokémon Bank. When I say that I mean that I have at least one copy of every Pokémon released (I hatched eggs from the fully evolved forms to get it so. I got the mythical ones from the events for the 20th anniversary.). One day when I was bored, I decided to level all of them up to 100.

It’s not easy let me tell you that. I have ‘level caps’ that I get them to then go to the next one to raise to that level cap. It goes 20, 35, 50, 70, 90 and finally 100. I can proudly say that none of them are less than level 35.

What I’ve done typically is to restart a game that I’ve cleared all but one my Pokémon in (cause one has to be in the party) and start playing. Since none of my target Pokémon are below 35 I train up extra or event Pokémon (like my hat Pikachus. It’s too bad the ones in the original games can’t evolve, I have enough for that. Maybe with the Let’s Go games I’ll be able to transfer some of my hat Raichus. Who knows?  I also finally got Celebi on PoGo thanks to the psychic event!

Anyway, the only other story I read was ‘Secrecy’ by Serena530. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry learns Ron and Dumbledore are betraying him at the beginning of 2nd year. He starts staying away from Ron and Hermione (because she doesn’t notice the changes Ron forces on him) and becomes friends with Ginny. Watch how Harry and Ginny deal with the challenges that come before them! I like this one, but the author hasn’t updated it in a while. The story link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7684812/1/Secrecy.

Nothing else for today, I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!

Saturday

Hm, so I did a lot today. First of all I finished off Legion (wow four chapters, snort). Second I read the new chapters for Queen of the Seas and Relic of the Future. There was also a new chapter for a story called ‘Sealed Legacy’ by Psycho G. It’s a Naruto story where when Naruto is young, Jiraya stumbles upon a Uzumaki seal that when he activates it (not knowing what it does) almost kills him sending his knowledge and chakra to Naruto. Naruto slowly gets this knowledge and gets some of Jiraya’s habits too. It’s a good story but hasn’t been updated in while, so I was surprised to see it. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7344530/1/Sealed-Legacy.

Third, I started rewatching Darker Than Black because I kept getting updates for a story about it from an author I’m following named Brennus. They wrote a one-shot I mentioned earlier called ‘In the Heat of the Night.’ The story was called ‘Darker Than Black – Heaven’s Gate,’ and I rewatched some of it to remember the characters and story.

Darker Than Black is an anime about Hei, who has the ability to control electricity. He is a ‘contractor,’ someone who’s lost their emotions to get a power. They and ‘Dolls’ (those who also lost their emotions, but can track people instead) evolved from some people when the ‘Heaven Gate’ and ‘Hell Gate’ appeared one day. Hei or as he is dubbed ‘The Black Reaper’ works for ‘The Syndicate’ in tracking down targets and information.

Hei is not a normal contractor as he shows some emotions. He works with a Doll named Yin, an animal consciousness transfer contractor (this means that he can transfer his consciousness to animal) who is stuck in a cat’s body after his own died and a bitter human named Huang who doesn’t like contractors who is the leader. Hei wants to find his sister who disappeared and gets caught up in many events.

I only watched 13 of the 24 episodes (for now), but it was enough for what I needed and read the story. It’s okay, the story takes place after the second series and the author kills off the main female protagonist so another can get together with the main character. There’s only one chapter left, so we’ll see how the ending goes. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13001503/1/Darker-than-Black-Heaven-s-Gate.

Fourth, I started looking for a story I couldn’t remember the name of and now I think its been deleted from Fanfiction.net. I have a store of all the stories on it up to 2015 (no, I didn’t make it) that I eventually found a while back. I eventually found it, ‘Survival of the Lamest’ and its sequel ‘Revenge of the Lamest’ by ShadowMajin.

It’s about Gohan’s class (before he goes to school) goes to his home to ‘camp’, silliness ensues. Also, Goku is alive for some reason. The second one is when Gohan actually goes to school. (This is Monday Matt – I was wrong these two are still up, see my day to get more on this.) I also found ‘Impasse’ and ‘Finesse’ by Dr. Trunks Briefs, I’ll talk about theses when I read them. (Monday Matt again, these are gone from ff.net.)

I didn’t read any of these, but if some wants to read them, let me know and I can send them to you. If anyone wants the archive, I’ll look up the link I got it from and send it to you. However just the zip files for them are several GB large each and the A archive (the archive for all the stories that start with A [the original stories not the fanfiction] and their crossovers) is 10.86 GB. So if want the archive make sure you have lots of space.

Moving on, I also read a new story for me called ‘Eighteen Years a Prodigy’ by AUS Wild Thing. It’s a Dragon Ball Z story I found while searching for the above stories. It’s about Videl, Erasa, and Sharpener going to a work-study program at Capsule Corp (CC). There they meet Gohan who has worked for CC (and never gone to school) for 2 years and is the head of Science and Inventing. It’s an interesting story, but slow updates based on it being started in 2015 and the latest update (the 5th chapter) being in November 2017. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11300579/1/Eighteen-Years-a-Prodigy.

I actually have one more new fanfiction and a new story that are connected, but because today’s post is long and I’ll be reading a lot more of the story tomorrow I’ll leave it till then. So long!

Sunday

The story I mentioned yesterday is called Soul Land and I discovered it yesterday after reading a fanfiction that has it as a crossover with KHR. The fanfiction is a new one by sakurademonalchemist (so soon after the start of Queen of the Seas? Really?) called ‘Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers.’ It has Fon reborn along with the main character and changing the story. Viper/Mammon is also tagged so I assume he/she (the original story never shows their gender) will be in it too. Only one chapter so couldn’t tell how will go. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13085596/1/Rising-Dragon-Hidden-Hammers. It says it’s crossovered with ManHua/Chinese Comics, but that’s just because there aren’t many fanfictions for Chinese comics (or Korean ones) so they just lump them all together into one category for each country.

Anyway, after reading the chapter I went to find the original story. Soul Land is about Tang San (no, San is his name not a Japanese honorific) who is reincarnated after killing himself for stealing secrets from his clan to help them. At 6 they get a spirit that they can train to get stronger. He gets a Blue Silver Grass (a weak spirit) and a Hammer. He hides the hammer (because none has two spirits) but proves he’s powerful by showing he has lots of spirit power. He goes to an academy to learn how to train his spirit. He has many adventures after that.

I started reading the manga yesterday, but only got to about chapter 21. Today I got to chapter 182. There are currently 212 chapters.

I also read new chapters for The Unseen Hunt, Enough, Queen of the Seas and Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers. There were also several new chapters for stories I haven’t mentioned yet. One of these stories is ‘White’ by Melkor’s Mercy. It’s a Bleach story where Ichigo is eaten by the hollow from the first chapter because Rukia wasn’t in the human world yet. He takes over the hollow and starts changing things in Hueco Mundo. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11021904/1/White.

The next one is ‘Under the Sea’ by ginnyrules27. It’s a Harry Potter and “Little Mermaid” crossover. I’d describe the Little Mermaid, but if you haven’t seen it… Go See It Right Now! I mean really, it’s a classic and everyone should be able to say they’ve seen it, even if they hate it. It has the Dudley accidentally trying to drown Harry when he was young. He is found by the Ariel (who is the same age) and Triton makes him a merman. After a few years, Harry is found by McGonagall and Snape who transform him back and erase Harry’s and Ariel’s memories of each other. They meet each other in his fourth year. This is not a Harry/Ariel story. They end up with their cannon spouses. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8673544/1/Under-the-Sea.

The last new update is for ‘New Developments’ by Illioh. It’s a Dragon Ball Z story where a spy satellite falls down after Gohan goes to school. It has footage from the Cell Games. How will this change things? Find out from this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7629710/1/New-Developments.

Finally, I started rereading a Slytherin Harry fanfic called ‘Becoming Alpha’ by Miz636. It has Harry going to Slytherin and trying to combine the houses. This is a great story and I love reading it and it’s sequels. This one goes through third year. The overall story is complete and I really recommend it. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6389117/1/Becoming-Alpha.

See you tomorrow when this is posted!

Monday

Today I mostly finished rereading Becoming Alpha, playing Pokemon Sun and did work around the house. I read the new chapters for Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers, Mauling Snarks and Queen of the Seas. I also read an older fic by sakurademonalchemist (meaning it’s unfinished) called ‘Heart of the Soul.’ It’s a KHR crossover with “Ghost Hunt.” Ghost Hunt is a light novel/anime about a girl named Mai who becomes a part of a paranormal agency who try to help those who are afflicted with those types of problems. It’s good! In the fanfic Mai is a female Tsuna who was run out of the house after her brother erased their mother’s memories of her. This one is also good! It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12581425/1/Heart-of-the-Soul.

The last story I read was ‘By Your Side is Where I Belong’ by TexasBean. It’s a One Piece and Naruto crossover. It has Zoro taking Naruto and Gaara (both 9ish) with him a few years before he would join Luffy. Thus Naruto and Gaara also join the One Piece crew. This link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12290800/1/By-Your-Side-is-Where-I-Belong.

I also learned that Survival of the Lamest and Revenge of the Lamest are still up. The link to SotL is here –https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3637125/1/Survival-of-the-Lamest and the link to RofL is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4125319/1/Return-of-the-Lamest.

Sorry, it’s short. Want to get this up today. See you Thursday!

Can’t Think of a Title

Tuesday

Today, I read the newest Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild. Things are happening and I can’t wait to see what happens! I read the new chapters of Service with a Smile, and Taylor Varga (an omake not a chapter). I also started rereading Naberius Heir that I mentioned in the last post.

The only new (to y’all) story I read was the newest chapter of ‘Celestial Worm’ by ack1308. It (like all of their stories) is a Worm fic with a crossover with a new novel series called Celestial Wars that the author helped its author (Karen Buckridge) develop. I haven’t read it, but I will eventually (most likely) read it. The fic is about an OC from the named book series who comes to the Worm Verse at some point in time (I think before the start of it because it sounds like from Danny [Taylor hasn’t shown up in the fic yet] that Taylor’s still living with him). She has lots of powers (from being celestial I assume) and helps Danny out. It’s only to chapter 3 but it looks interesting. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13037826/1/Celestial-Worm-Worm-AU-crossover.

Since I don’t have much for today, I’ll talk about the “Power Rangers” series. Yeah, I was a huge fan of the original series when I was young. I think I stopped watching sometime during Turbo. I now know that there were many problems with the actors (including low pay and bullying of the gay member of the cast [since I mentioned it, I will say I have nothing against LBGT people. I am not one, but I respect their right to like/love who they want to and I find that the background people and directors almost lead him to suicide to be despicable.]). I’m still glad the actors/actresses brought joy to those of us who watched them.

That being said, if you didn’t know, the Power Rangers series is basically a rip-off of the Japanese series “Super Sentai”. The ranger suits are from a respective Sentai series. Some of the scenes in the suits (mostly with the monsters) and all the Zord scenes are ripped-off directly from their Super Sentai counterpart and dubbed over. In fact, the ‘White’ ranger wasn’t in the Sentai series with the others from the original Power Rangers. This is why they changed Zords around the time he showed up. As far as I know this hasn’t changed into the (how many different Power Ranger series are there now anyway?) present. I know they’re at least still using same suits.

The movies however were made based on anything else (maybe not the second one, don’t know). This explains why they had another ‘origin’ for the Power Ranger ‘ninja’ powers after the first movie in the series (and why the Zords and suits look different).

One last thing, Tommy Oliver has had the most ‘color’ changes of any other character. Green and White in the original series, Red in Zeo and Turbo and Black in Dino Thunder. Also cameos in Wild Force, S.P.D, Super Megaforce and Super Ninja Steel. Did you know that in real life his actor, Jason David Frank, is an undefeated professional mixed martial artist with his own gym and his own martial art called ‘Toso Kune Do”? He’s even in the World Karate Union Hall of Fame. He made quite a life for himself, that’s for sure.

Anyway after that longer than expect rant (that didn’t even talk about what the Power Rangers is even about. Whatever, look it up if you don’t know), there’s nothing else for today. Look down for tomorrow.

Wednesday

There were quite a few new chapters that came out today: Pick Up the Piece and Rebuild (of course), Cambion, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, Heroes Assemble!, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There, A Worthless Quirk, Go Away I’m Watching Porn and an interlude for Mauling Snarks. And those are just the ones that I’ve mentioned before! Also I finished rereading Naberius Heir.

A new chapter for the story called ‘Readin Jaune Ryu-Long:Dragon contractor’ by dirtrevor. It is a reading story for the RWBY story with the same name (without the ‘reading’) by azdrgn (the author I’m betaing for, I got a new chapter for History’s Strongest Disciple Again? I’m gonna edit soon. He doesn’t put it up until later so I take my time reading it first before I edit it to get its flow). I’m sure I’ll talk about that one later, so I’ll leaving talking about it until then. It has RWBY, JNPR, and some of the teachers reading it. The author (who’s in the story) gives them the items and powers they get in the story they’re reading. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12736548/1/Reading-Jaune-Ryu-Long-Dragon-contractor.

The next new chapter was this week’s story update for Seerking called ‘Naruto: The Game of Life’. It’s a Naruto and The Gamer crossover with Naruto getting the Gamer power right before his last year of the academy. This changes many things (also it’s a harem fic, so if you don’t like, don’t read). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973590/1/Naruto-The-Game-of-Life.

The last new chapter was for the story ‘A Crushing Revolution’ by Lunar-L. It’s a Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir story that has Adrian learning that Marinette has a crush on him (from her alter ego no less). This changes his worldview as he starts paying more to her. Where is the link? Why it’s here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12300409/1/A-Crushing-Revelation.

I also started reading the newest story from sakurademonalchemist (again, not finishing any of their other fics) called ‘Queen of the Seas’.   It’s a crossover between Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn and One Piece. Essentially, KHR characters have been reborn (lol) as One Piece characters (including a female Luffy because Tsuna was a female in their past life). Xanxus is Ace, Dino is Sabo and those are the only characters we’ve meet that’ve been reborn (I like saying that don’t I?). There are only two chapters so far, but it looks interesting. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13081098/1/Queen-of-the-Seas.

That’s all for today folks, tomorrow’s only a line away!

Thursday

I realized that I haven’t given y’all an update on my Celebi quest on PoGo in a while. I’m up to 30/40 of grass and psychic types on the last quest. Tomorrow I should be able to finish it with the psychic types being more available starting tomorrow afternoon (which is totally not a way to try and get trainers to get to this quest to make it easier).

In other news, I was sadly wrong and Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild is not done and today was the last update until they finish it. It was a great ending to the (I assume) halfway point, so I guess I can wait. Don’t know when that will be though.   The only new chapters were from GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Queen of the Seas.

Anyway, I started rereading one of sakurademonalchemist’s stories, ‘Mists of a Dawning Sky.’ It’s a KHR and Harry Potter crossover where Harry is female and becomes Viper after the war. It’s about her life before and after the Arcabaleno curse. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12455171/1/Mists-of-a-Dawning-Sky.

I also reread two connected stories by White Angel of Auralon called ‘Screw Them!’ and ‘We’re Screwed’. In Screw Them, Harry leaves Hogwarts after a much worse aftermath to the school learning he’s a parselmouth. His leaving changes many things and leads to him helping the ‘muggle’ government in taking down Voldie and his Death Eaters along with starting a new school to help teach ‘muggleborns’. We’re Screwed is about the Wizarding World finding out about the new school and the shit storm brought on them by the Queen and the British Government. The link to Screw Them! is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10322302/1/Screw-Them. And the Link to We’re Screwed is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10533939/1/We-re-Screwed.

Finally I started rereading a story called ‘Legion’ by NeverTooOld. It’s a Worm fic where Taylor has a much worse experience in the ‘Locker’ and eventually has to be healed extensively by Amy (Panacea). This leads to their friendship and more (Yes, it is a lesbian Skitter/Panacea fic. Don’t like, don’t read). Many things change. Sadly I don’t know if the author is writing anymore (or even with us anymore, I remember reading about some hospital visits [praying for you NeverTooOld] and he hasn’t responded to comments since January). It has 24 chapter and I look for to it (maybe) continuing. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11415619/1/Legion.

That’s it for this post. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!

A Normal Three Days

Tuesday

Today I spent a lot of time with Coeur Al’Aran’s fanfictions. I fully reread a previously mentioned fic, ‘Relic of the Future’ because I hadn’t been keeping up with the story and wanted to catch up. I also read the first chapter of their new story ‘The Unseen Hunt’. It’s a RWBY story set in the real world that deals with the supernatural. Like most of their fics it’s based around Jaune. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13073342/1/The-Unseen-Hunt.

I also started reading another of their fics I haven’t read before, ‘Not this time, Fate.’ It’s finished and deals with a Jaune that is tired of the repeat that happens every time he dies during the attack on Vale. He tries to not go to Beacon, but it seems Fate won’t let him not go. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11822902/1/Not-this-time-Fate.

I read a few more chapters of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and read new chapters for Warlock, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and The Healing Touch. I also got an update for a fic I haven’t mentioned yet.

It’s called ‘Ripples’ by the real narnia. This is a sort of self-insert into the “Fairy Tail” universe. Fairy Tail is a manga/anime that is set in a world where magic is a normal part of life. It follows the story of the magic guild called Fairy Tail and their adventures. The main characters are Lucy (who can summon spirits, including ones based off the Zodiac), Natsu (whose a dragon slayer and is trying to find his the dragon who raised him), Happy (a talking blue cat with wings), Erza (a mage who equips swords and armor) and Gray (an Ice mage who can’t keep his cloths on).

In Ripples, the self-insert Ella, is sent to the Fairy Tail world after dying. She is young and has a new type of magic. She joins up long before most of the characters do and does her best to change things for the better. But her changes cause ripples (ah, see what she did there) and many things change, both good and bad. I really liked this fic and am glad it is continuing. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12477008/1/Ripples.

I only got a one grass type for my Celebi quest today, now I’m up to two. That’s it for today, gonna go crash. See ya’ll tomorrow.

Wednesday

As usual, I’ll start off with Seerking’s updated story that I mentioned last post, Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils V2. It starts off after the Mizuki graduation incident and has a female Naruto – Naruko (which is often the name of his female transformed shadow clones if they’re around long enough). She has lived a similar, but different life and it shows in her friends and actions. See how these changes affect things. It’s version two because the first version was taken off because of the mature scenes. Said scenes are now on another website. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10723816/1/Uzumaki-Naruko-To-the-Victor-the-Spoils-V2.

I finished off Not this time, Fate and read more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts. There were also new chapters for GATE: Thus The Chosen One Fought There (it’s been updating daily for the last week or so) and Heroes Assemble!

There were also updates from two stories I haven’t mentioned yet. The first fic I read is called ‘A Worthless Quirk’ by TitaniumDragon22. It has Izuku getting his mother’s quirk of attraction of small objects. He uses this to try and become a great hero. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12469438/1/A-Worthless-Quirk.

The second fic is called ‘Worm: More Than Meets the Eye’ by Zero-metallix. It’s a Worm and Transformers crossover. The actual Transformers aren’t really in it, but they do make their own power ‘shard’ and Taylor triggers with it making her able to create at least the smaller transformers. Many things change and it makes it a completely different story. It is now on it’s 108th chapter. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10788803/1/Worm-More-Than-Meets-The-Eye.

I also started rereading a fic called ‘Dark Phoenix of Konoha’ by White Angel of Auralon. It’s a Naruto story that has Naruto hiding his abilities until he graduates. He’s still hiding more of his abilities, but goes under a disguise he calls Dark Phoenix to protect himself. It has a realistic way of helping both Sasuke and Sakura get through their issues and make them better ninja. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8508200/1/Dark-Phoenix-of-Konoha.

Other than that, I got a few psychic and grass types today bring my total up to 8! Only 32 more to complete the task. See you when I post this tomorrow!

Thursday

Figure I would say this first, I got a call to come in for a job interview tomorrow! Wish me luck! I also bought my ticket for the new Pokemon movie coming to theaters in the US in late November/early December. It’s called The Power of Us and I’m looking forward to it!

Moving on to the things I’ve read, I finished Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and have moved onto the second fic in the series, ‘Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock.’ It tells the story of the first year at Hogwarts for Harry, Ginny, Hermione and their friends and family. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7093608/1/Honestly-Harry-The-Year-of-the-Rock.

The new story I read today is called ‘OverGamer’ by SaintInfernalNeos. It is a crossover between Sword Art Online and the Overlord games. To be honest, I don’t know much about the games. The story has Kazuto running away after he learns he’s adopted and accidentally learning he’s the descendent of the Overlord and is forced to train to become one himself. Watch out for Overlord Kirito.  It’s amusing, but currently only 5 chapters. Hope it gets more. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12714273/1/OverGamer.

I looked through a few of Fanfiction.net’s Homestuck fics, but nothing popped out at me. The only update for a story was of course, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There.

I caught a few more grass types and have raised the count up to 11 and 29 more to go. Sorry this is so short, have to leave early to get to the interview tomorrow. See you on Monday!

Weekend of Stories (and Homestuck)

Friday

So, I’ve reached somewhere in Act 6: Act 2 of Homestuck (there are apparently 6 Acts in Act 6, go figure).   I’m on page 4929. And we have more new characters! Like 12 new troll characters (if I’m reading into this correctly, though I don’t know how many are actually important at this point) and two unknowns. Moving on from the weird story I can’t stop reading; I did read other things!

I read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks. The story I’m betaing for, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, put the newest chapter out today. I finished rereading No Need for Harry and read some more of The Accidental Animagus. I read the newest chapter of Parva Sub Ingenti by Quatermass and learned of their new one, which I read.

It’s called ‘GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There,’ and it’s a GATE and Star Wars Crossover. Essentially, Anakin crash lands on the world on the other side of the Gate around the beginning of the story (not too long before Episode II for him). He becoming involved in events there and it changes both his and the story’s fate. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13070510/1/GATE-Thus-the-Chosen-One-Fought-There.

azndrgn, the author I beta for, also updated another one of his stories – ‘Mending the Knots.’ Which is another RWBY one where Jaune doesn’t get into Beacon and starts a business. However, this one is a massage parlor instead of a café. It’s amusing and is now 14 chapters long. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12764610/1/Mending-the-Knots.

He also started a new story called, ‘How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.’ It’s a My Hero Academia story with a very slight One Piece (I’ll talk about One Piece eventually) crossover. Izuku (the main character who’s Hero name is Deku) gets Luffy’s powers (the upsides and the downsides) after being forcefed a strange fruit. Watch how this changes things. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13071837/1/How-Eating-a-Strange-Fruit-Gave-Me-My-Quirk.

Lastly, but not leastly (I’m aware it’s not a word, but I wanted it to be that way), I started rereading the first story in the ‘Honestly Harry’ series by Captain Compass. It’s called ‘Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts.’ It has Hagrid taking Harry to Hogwarts instead of staying in the hut when he tells him he’s a wizard. Many things change because of this. This is a soul bond story and is up to seventh story and the fourth year (seventh because before first year, after second year and after third year have their own stories). Getting to Hogwarts has 80 chapters (they aren’t that long though). None of the others have that many chapters, but the chapters get longer. It’s a good story, but not a frequent updater. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6950954/1/Honestly-Harry-Getting-to-Hogwarts.

I was able to walk for PoGo today and was able to hatch both a Kangaskhan and a Mr. Mime. YAY! Thus my Gen 1 Pokédex was finished. I’m still working on the Celebi Quests (the 7 day thing doesn’t finish until Monday), but other than the one that hasn’t been released I have all of Gen 2 as well. Just missing the regionals for Gen 3 (along with the unreleased ones). It’s community day tomorrow for the Chikorita shiny, hope that goes well! See you tomorrow, right below this!

Saturday

Sigh. Today was both good and bad. So, I don’t think I’ve mentioned that I have a dog. She’s a longhaired Chihuahua. I love her a lot, but she doesn’t like storms at all. It was just my luck that it stormed heavily last night. She stays in my room at night and insisted on waking me up periodically to comfort her. I gave up on going back to sleep at 6, but then the storm ended. I’ve been a bit tired all day though.

Moving on, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Plenipotent Player Prince put out new chapters today and I read some more Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts. I also got an update for a reading story by yukicrewger called ‘Reading Chronicles Book 1: To The Victor, the Spoils.’ It has Naruto characters reading the fanfiction ‘Uzumaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils’ by Seerking. It’s the one that will be updated this coming Wednesday, so I’ll talk about it then. It’s amusing, but more complicated that I think it should be (the reading story not the original). The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11815425/1/Reading-Chronicles-Book-1-To-the-Victor-the-Spoils.

I watched some episodes of Skyward Wing playing Kingdom Hearts – Re:Coded and read some more of Ginny Returns. I was out for all three hours of the PoGo community day and got 9 shinnies. There was also this thing with an unknown Pokémon after the event that turned mostly into dittos after they were caught (I got a few ones that were chikoritas). I think it was teaser for the new Pokémon that’s going to be able to be gifted to PoGo from the Let’s Go games.

I’ve gotten to page 5263 of Homestuck. I’m on Act 6 Intermission 3, so far intermissions two and three are mini-games that I’ve watched someone else play instead of doing it myself. They mostly deal with introducing said 12 new trolls I mentioned yesterday and their history. To be honest, I think my projection that they would mostly be minor characters is mostly likely true.

That’s it for today! Maybe Homestuck will move onto the regular plot soon.

Sunday

Today was a very one story intensive one. I read some more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and Ginny Returns, but it was mostly Homestuck. After another intermission or two like the previous ones, the story finally got to when all the main characters are together. Only for the situation to go to crap in several ways and then for another character to go off the rails to fix it (which where I am now). I got to page 6553. I’m not sure how long it will take for me to finish it, but things are very interesting now and there are more short pages. I’m thinking of doing something with the information I’ve gotten from this story when I finish it, but don’t know what it will be.

In the absence of other reading material, I figure I should talk about One Piece. One Piece is the story about Luffy D. Monkey (in the English style). He wants to become King of the Pirates by finding One Piece where the former King left his treasure.

Luffy has become a rubber man (meaning his body is made of rubber) because he ate a Devil Fruit. Those who eat one get powers, but can never swim again and being in water depowers them. The story starts as he begins his journey to find a crew (and an actual boat). There are over 850 episodes out in Japan and the manga is still going. The English version, isn’t that good (at least at the beginning, didn’t watch much after that) and the dubbed song sucked.

No more today, maybe there will be more tomorrow!

Monday

SO! I finished Homestuck! All 8130 freaking pages. The main bit of the final fights was a 17ish min video. I think I learned something from this, but I can’t honestly tell you what that is yet. It’s freeing, but also a bit sad to be finished. There were some unanswered questions, but nothing that was too bad and a bit of mystery to an ending is never a bad thing.

I went back to my old posts to see when I started reading Homestuck and it was Tuesday the 4th of this month. Today is the 24th, so I read it in 20 days. That might as well be mostly like 14 days because I don’t think I read it much for the first week after I found it. Wow, that’s a lot even for me, especially these last few days. I would not suggest this story unless you plan to only read it sporadically or have a lot of time (and patience). There are at least 50 characters you have to pay attention to by the end (including dead copies from other timelines) and there is a lot of time ‘shenanigans’ as they call it. That’s not including the author deciding to have his own moment in the story with his own side story (including weird things dealing with the fourth wall being an actual wall [or window]?).

But enough about that, I read more of Honestly Harry – Getting to Hogwarts and finished Ginny’s Return. I read the new chapters for: It Gets Worse, Warlock, Cambion, GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There and Mauling Snarks. I also reread two one-shots by kb0.

The first is called ‘Who Did It?’ It has Harry refusing that he should be in the tournament and working to solve who put him in it. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12888787/1/Who-Did-It. The second one is called “Hogwarts Protection System.” In it Hogwarts has a protection system and it activates when too many things threatening students come into the school on the night of Harry’s sorting. The Aurors are called (by the Sorting Hat), many things come out and several problems are solved or at least the process is started. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12488670/1/Hogwarts-Protection-System.

I also finished the sixth set of quests for the Celebi quest. I finished two of the seventh set, the Gold Gen 2 medal and the excellent curve ball. I only got one grass for the 40 grass or psychic type Pokémon, which sucks. Hope I finish it soon (wish I had this one during the community day).

See you all on Thursday and I hope that my ramblings help someone!

 

Over a Month Active!

Tuesday

Today, I looked it up and found that this blog has been going for over a month (the 16th was when it was a month). Yay! I read some more of Ginny Returns, read new chapters for Elemental Sky (by sakurademonalchemist for those who don’t remember) and Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Bugging Me and started rereading Stand Together and Smile. I also read some more of Homestuck and got to page 2793. That story just keeps getting weirder; I suspect it will get worse since it’s only somewhat over a quarter done.

Moving on, I read a few new stories (fairly short ones). The first one was ‘Naruto: Rise of the Emperor Revised’ by Snafu the Great. It’s based on one of the fairly common storylines from Naruto fanfiction: Naruto gets banished after the Sasuke Retrevial Mission (whether he’s successful or not) and either goes alone or with someone/somepeople to the ‘West’ which the elemental nations stay away from because they are always at war. Naruto eventually becomes Emperor (everything before this usually happens before the story) and Konoha eventually comes to him for help. How things are handled are different per writer. This is a Hinata/Naruto version. Here is a link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7017359/1/Naruto-Rise-of-the-Emperor-Revised.

The second one is unfinished and I don’t know if it will be finished. It’s called ‘Ranma ½: Consequences’ by the same author. It’s about the consequences of things going wrong after the story. I didn’t like this one much because: it hasn’t been updated since 2015, is only 4 chapters so far and I don’t think its well written. It’s a ‘bashing’ fic (meaning bad things about certain characters are aired frequently) for the Tendo Family, Genma and most of the other characters. Maybe if it was continued, it would have been good. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11055080/1/Ranma-Consequences.

The last two are from the author White Squirrel. The first ‘Justice, Justice Shall You Pursue’ is a Harry Potter fic that has the Goblins arresting the Dursleys in the fifth year. The Dursleys call for the Lord High Chancellor of Britian to represent him and it leads to muggle government having more to do with events in the wizarding world. I quite like it even though it’s only 6 chapters.   The link to the fic is – and the link to the author’s page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11961978/1/Justice-Justice-Shall-You-Pursue.

The last new story is I think finished, but it has a ending that allow the reader to fill in the blanks. It’s called ‘Petrification Proliferation’ and is another Harry Potter fic. It’s about what would happen if there was a procedure in the wizarding world for if a basilisk is found. It is enacted as soon as Harry tells Dumbledore and the Weasleys about it. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11265467/1/Petrification-Proliferation.

I also walk some more, but only got a FarFetch’d. Though I did finally reach the second 10km I need for the Celebi quest … now I need to spin stops for 7 days before I can advance, yay! (that was sarcasm, in case you didn’t know). That’s it for today, see you all on the flip side!

Wednesday

Not much new today and it was rainy, so I didn’t do any walking today :(. There were new chapters for Taylor Varga and Reincarnation Roulette. I also reached page 3975 on Homestuck today. That may seem like a large jump, but there were a lot of short pages. Also, shit is going down, people and trolls are dying and there’s going to be a world reset coming up. Yeah, and we’re only almost halfway done. (side note, if you have trouble keeping up with multiple characters & or timelines, this is not the story for you, Trust Me). On another note, I read a chapter or two of Pick up the Pieces (and Take Stock). I mentioned it a while ago, because I was reading its sequel. I like it a lot because it’s about a non-main (but important) character dealing with the shit the main character (and others) did in the aftermath of the story.

Seerking’s new updated story this week is called ‘Pain and Hatred: A Stray Devil’s Tale’ and is a Highschool DxD story. It’s about a powerful stray (meaning they betrayed the devil who turned them into one from whatever their original species was) devil who needs Issei’s gear for something. This person is seen as a bad person, but not all is as it seems. You need to know quite a bit about the original story to really understand what is going on. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973658/1/Pain-and-Hatred-A-Stray-Devil-s-Tale.

I’ll take this time to talk about the Gundam series. There are several Gundam continuities, but the first series was called “Mobile Suit Gundam”. Gundams are ‘mobile suits’ (which are a large human shaped robot used in battle) made out of Gundanium. They are typically used as the turning point in a war of some kind (quite often between space colonies and Earth). The previously mentioned series has many sequels in its continuity the Universal Century. There are a few other continuities, but the ones to watch are Gundam 00, Gundam SEED, G Gundam, Gundam Wing and the newest (but one of the best) Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans. It may seem like a lot, but they’re worth watching. Also, there are a few really good Gundam video games that crossover between the continuities.

Nothing else for today, on the way to tomorrow!

Thursday

It was rainy again today (though more so), so again no more walking <_>. I’m now up to chapter 4463 of Homestuck (finally over the middle mark). Yeah, so now we’re being introduced to some new old characters (I’m not even gonna try and explain this one. Read if you really want to know). Read some more from Pick up the Pieces (and Take Stock), but what I was really excited about was that From Fake Dreams got a new chapter! I was ecstatic that one came out (especially so soon after I reread it). The trial is almost over and the next thing is lurking in the background.

Other than I’m rereading a story called ‘No Need for Harry’ by Pheonix Dawn. I’m waiting (without much hope) for them to continue another story that I’ll talk about later. This one is a Harry Potter and Tenchi Muyo crossover. Tenchi Muyo is an anime about the character who it’s named after and his adventures with the females and family that he discovers (that are from outer space). In the story, Harry uses a power in the graveyard that only Tenchi could use. The characters from TM discover this and go and get him from his relatives. Que massive changes. It’s fun and worth the read. The link to the story is here -https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5247028/1/No-Need-for-Harry .

The new story I started reading is called, ‘The Accidental Animagus’ by White Squirrel. It uses a common fanfiction tropes of Harry turning into a cat and escaping the Dursleys, along with the Granger’s adopting him. Haven’t gotten far into the story, but at least Dumbledore doesn’t seem like a bad guy in this one (and only slightly misguided). The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9863146/1/The-Accidental-Animagus.

Hope people have enjoyed this month of writing! See you on Monday and maybe it won’t rain that much and I can walk again!

A Walking Weekend

Friday

Today, I had more time and thus read a lot more, mostly Homestuck. I got to page 2378. Almost all of the trolls have been introduced, but they’re kinda really out there. It’s going through their ‘origins’ and many of the trolls are messed up (in the head mostly, but also a lot physically especially from each other). Yeah, might take a break from this one for a little bit.

I’ve been actually rereading the story From Fake Dreams that I’ve mentioned before. I’m able to reread many stories faster because I copy the text of a chapter onto a text to speech app called Voice Dream. It keeps the chapter copy so I can search for it if I want to listen to it again. I know some people don’t like the ‘computerized’ voice, but I have one with a British accent and I like it!

I read new chapters from both Taylor Varga (Yay!) and Mauling Snarks. Other than that I read the three newest chapters of the Korean manga called, “The Gamer”. It’s about a boy named Han Jee-Han who gains the power to treat life like a video game. He can level up, get items, learn skills from books, quests, and many more similar things. This leads him into the Abyss, the underworld of those with magic and other abilities. Watch as he learns to hone his skills (including the dish washing one) and make his own way in the Abyss. It has 239 chapters so far.

Wow no links today. Guess we’ll see about tomorrow.

Saturday

Today was a lazy day mostly, because it was very rainy. I don’t live on the east coast, but to all those that are (Especially in the Carolinas) stay safe! I mostly reread (listened to) From Fake Dreams, though I did go out and walk a little to hatch some eggs in PoGo to get those regionals (none today, I hatched to ones that I got before the event).

I rewatched the a few of Pokemon shorts called “Pokemon Generations” that animates some of the scenes from the game (including short side stories that you didn’t know). To name some are: Blue’s run through the Pokemon League before you from the Red and Blue games and life throughout the games in the eyes of a Pikachu. Other than that I got a new chapter of An Essence of Silver and Steel and one I haven’t mentioned before, ‘Stand Together and Smile’ by KnightEstoc. It’s a Sword Art Online fanfic that has the main characters Asuna and Kirito (Kazuto) meeting and becoming friends as kids IRL before the main storyline. See how things change (Including Kirito getting a harem). The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12894463/1/Stand-Together-and-Smile.

In absence of more things I’ve read today, I figured I just mention how diverse anime and manga are.   I mean you have the sci-fi and magical ones, but I’m just talking about in terms of ones about sports. They have ones for the ‘main’ sports: Football (Soccer to those of us from America. Because we just can’t have the same name for things that the rest of the world does. I mean take the way we tell time for example, Americans call the 24 hour clock ‘Military time’, when to the rest of the world it’s just normal time) represented by “Whistle”, America Football represented by “Eyeshield 21”, Tennis represented by “The Prince of Tennis”, Baseball represented by “Cross Game”, Boxing represented by “Hajime no Ippo”, and volleyball represented by “Haikyu!!” (Keep in mind these are just one example of each, there are more especially Baseball and Football).   However there are some for other, more obscure sports: Table Tennis represented by “Ping Pong” (Yes, that’s the name of the manga), Swimming represented by “Free!”, and Badminton by “Smash!” to name a few. Feel free to look these up!

That’s it for today! Thanks for listening to my rant!

Sunday

Today I also walked some more to hatch regional eggs (And 10km for Celebi quests), but the only regional I hatched was a Tauros. I did finish the first eevee 10km quest and evolved it into a shiny umbreon at night for the next set (just one more 10km!). I reread (listened) to more of From Fake Dreams and am almost finished, just another ten chapters or so to get to where it currently is at 52 chapters.

I finished up Pokemon Generations, but that’s it. I’ll talk about Doctor Who today. For those who don’t know, Doctor Who is a British show that started in the 1960’s about a Time Lord named The Doctor who traveled space and time with his companions. When he dies, he is reincarnated into a different body. The series went on for a few decades and made it through 8 regenerations before it stopped for a while. It was rebooted in the 2000’s and started on the 9th (really 10th) regeneration. I started watching a few years after the reboot, but they’re already on the 13th (really 14th) Doctor, who is now a woman. (The ‘9th’ doctor is called the War Doctor and is only in the movie ‘The Day of the Doctor”). Look it up, but you won’t find all the original episodes because some have been lost to time (lol).

See you tomorrow! See below!

Monday

I finished From Fake Dreams and started rereading a fic called ‘Ginny Returns’ by kb0. It’s a Harry Potter story about a future Ginny who only has a paralyzed Hermione left, who goes back in time to save her husband (Harry), family, friends, and the wizarding world. Kbo is a good writer and although not all of their fics are Harry/Ginny (a few are though), I still like most of them. The link to the fic is –https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4740107/1/Ginny-Returns and the link to the author’s page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1251524/kb0.

I did read some new fanfictions today though! The first one is called “Persephone” by sunflowerb. It’s a How to Train Your Dragon Fic. (if you don’t know what it is, look it up. There are two movies currently and a third one coming out soonish). In this one, Hiccup is thought dead by Toothless after Astrid follows him. Then a Dragon Rider shows up and can ‘control’ the raiding dragons (he’s really trying to stop destruction). They give Astrid (now 20) up to him as a bride to make him stop the raids. It’s not a happy fic and deals with abandonment and alcoholism, but it’s a good story all the same. And it’s finished, there might be a sequel later. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10740714/1/Persephone.

The second story I read is called ‘Origin Story’ by Worldmaker. It’s a crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer/DC/Marvel. It has a copy of Xander in Power Girl’s body being made in the Marvel verse (Where things are very wrong) after the Halloween body switching spell. He has to get used to being in a female body with super powers, while on the run for next to nothing by the Marvel heroes & Villains. Check it out at -https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9801437/1/Origin-Story .

For those who don’t know Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it’s about a girl named Buffy who becomes the Slayer (the one who slays demons and vampires) and her friends as they battle vampires and demons while trying to live their lives. I would suggest it, even if it’s a bit old.

Other than that, I’ve started to try The Alchemist Code phone app, but am holding judgment and read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks. I walked again for eggs and km in PoGo and got halfway for the 10km and got a FarFetch’d (which I already had from the event last year. I need a Kangaskhan and a Mr. Mime).

That’s it for the weekend! See you on Thursday!

Homestuck and Some Other Things

There’s been a marked improvement on visitors since Monday! Yay! I hope my readers, new and old, continue to read and feel free to make comments or send me messages! Please, read on!

Tuesday

Today I read a lot of pages of the online mspaint story I mentioned earlier – Homestuck. After you get a hundred or so pages in (very short pages with some videos) it becomes a lot more interesting (and convoluted. It has not stopped getting more so, so far). I ended the on the page 522 for that one today (with no end in sight).

Other than that, I read some more chapters of Viridescent and read some manga chapters of the anime I previously mentioned, Black Lagoon. In doing so, I was surprised to see that the hiatus it was on (since 2014) ended long enough last year to finish the current story act (though it is now back on hiatus).

I forgot to mention, but I also started rereading a fanfiction called ‘Desperately Seeking Ranma’ by PixelWriter1 a day or two ago. It is a Ranma ½ fic with many OCs (Original Characters) that is set after the main storyline (of both the anime and manga) where many things go wrong right afterwards and Ranma and Kasumi leave Nerima. The story starts after said event (but the event in question is in a short story by the same author called ‘Aftermath’ with a one-shot direct sequel called ‘The Fugitives’) and is mostly centered on Nabiki as the main character. It has ‘magical girls’, ‘demons’ (both the more traditional ‘kill everything’ ones and ones that are more ‘nice aliens’ who just want ice cream and chocolate), portals to other realities and much, much more. It even has a crossover with “Sailor Moon” (although the author didn’t plan on it at first. Also, not a good read for fans of Sailor Moon). The link to the main story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9916589/1/Desperately-Seeking-Ranma. The link to Aftermath is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9710573/1/Aftermath.   Finally, the link to The Fugitives is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10886943/1/The-Fugitives.

I like this story very much and reread it many times. Sadly the author has not updated in two years. This doesn’t mean we haven’t heard from them, just that they have confessed to being stuck and not having much time to write. I hope they get the time to write and post soon!

For those who do not know, Sailor Moon is one of the oldie, but goodie animes (as long as you watch the Japanese sub version, the English Dub is horrible because they cut out a lot to make it a kids show. Like the lesbian characters in a later season, making one of them male. On a slightly related note, did you guys know the that the English version of Pokemon cut out an episode in the original series [Around the Safari Zone], where there is a gun and Ash gets shot?). There is a newer remake of it that is condensed from the original and more closely follows the manga called, “Sailor Moon Crystal”. I haven’t really seen it, but it looks okay. The series is about a girl named Usagi (Yes, it means rabbit) Tsukino who encounters a talking cat (named Luna, really original) that gives her the means to transform in Sailor Moon (making her a Moon Rabbit). She and her fellow Sailor Scouts fight against the dark forces while trying to find their princess. Like I said, check it out (just not the dub).

The last thing I did was read a new chapter of a story called ‘A Sith’s Second Chance’ by VFSNAKE (a really good and fairly prolific writer, I mean 96 stories!). It is a Star Wars fic that has Darth Vader being transported to Naboo at the beginning of Episode I after he dies in Episode VI. He has a younger (non-cybernetic) body and a desire to correct all the wrongs that happened in the universe while setting things up to eventually face his younger self. I quite like this one as well, along with many of VFSNAKE’s fics. The link the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12856644/1/A-Sith-s-Second-Chance and the link to VFSNAKE’s profile is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/979159/VFSNAKE.

That’s it for today. Tomorrow’s only a line away!

Wednesday

I’ll start off with Seerking’s normal Wednesday story update. This one is called ‘Ashikabi of Thunder and Lightning’. It is a Sekirei fanfiction. In this one, the main character’s (Minato) mother, Takami decides that there is no way to stop her son (Unlike the original) from becoming an Ashikabi (a mate of the Sekirei) and sends twin Sekirei to help him in the hopes he will wing them. He does and this leads to many things good and bad to happen. Look it up if it seems interesting! The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973901/1/Ashikabi-of-Thunder-and-Lightning.

Only one new chapter today and it was from Warlock. I finished off Viridescent and read a few more chapters of Desperately Seeking Ranma. Other than that I read many more pages of Homestuck today, getting to page 1931. Wondering when the end was, I looked it up and found that it had over 8000 pages before the end! It’s too bad it wasn’t over 9000, but some things can’t be helped. Things are making a lot more sense, in a twisted sort of way. Also, the character John has an obsession with the movie Con-Air’s ending (not that I don’t like it myself), as shown on the page I ended on.   I really am emotionally on the same page as the troll on this one.

No more for today, tomorrow is now today (look down!)

Thursday

I was busy today, so there’s not much I read today. I got to page 1994 of Homestuck, where we finally are about to learn more about the trolls. Reread all of the 7 chapters of A Sith’s Second Chance. The only new story I read was ‘I Aim to Misbehave’ by White Squirrel.

It’s a Harry Potter and Firefly crossover with the prologue showing Harry and his friends helping the evacuation of Earth (very pre-Firefly) and Harry finally leaving too in a sleep pod on a ship. He wakes up in very distant future and is looking to find his descendants. It’s been a while since I watched Firefly (Sadly), so I don’t know where it converges with it. However, I think it is a divergent timeline anyway. It’s only a prologue and the first chapter so far, but looks interesting. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12435331/1/I-Aim-to-Misbehave.

In the absence of more things I’ve read today, I’ll talk about another book series I’m a fan of – the Pendragon Series by D. J. MacHale. The series is about a young boy named Bobby Pendragon who is taken by his Uncle Press on an adventure to other dimensions to save all the dimensions from Saint Dane, who is trying to them down. He has to do this because he is a ‘Traveler’, one of 10 chosen to protect the dimensions. He records his journey on journals that he sends back to his friends back home. The series has 10 books in the main story and 3 ‘origin story’ compilations on the other Travelers. Look it up, it’s really good!

Also on PoGo, there are a now many Kanto (Gen 1) Pokemon available.  In addition to that the three legendary birds will be in raid (with a chance for Shiny) until the 20th.  After that for a month and few days until Oct. 23rd, Mewtwo will be a regular raid boss (maybe in preparation for Deoxys being the new EX raid boss).  Finally the Gen 1 regionals will be available in 7 km eggs, though I don’t know the stats for that happening.  This is through the end of the month.  Good luck to everyone!

That’s it for this post. See you after the Weekend. Hope everyone has a good one!

A Weekend for a Few Readers

So it looks like there were a few people who visited this past weekend. Thanks to those who did! Lets see if we can’t get more people to come. On to the weekend!

Friday

There were four new chapters that came out today. One for Stark Imprint, which reveals that it ‘happens’ after whatever the conclusion of the Avengers 4 movie.  The second one was for Parva Sub Ingenti and has the group going back through the Gate to Earth. The third one was of course Mauling Snarks (as usual). The last one was for a story a previously mentioned author, ack1308, called ‘It Gets Worse.’ Like most of his stories, it is based on Worm. Instead of Taylor triggering with Insect Control, she gets an unconscious power that brings bad luck to those who wish her harm or discomfort. This leads to hilarious situations and many things are solved. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11651073/1/It-Gets-Worse.

For most of the rest of the day I read Reaching for a Dream from yesterday and it’s three sequels. Reaching for a Dream is a straight Naruto fic, but at the end of it (30 chapters) they story leaves that universe. The second story is in the Justice League universe. Naruto and his wife (the Kyuubi) decide to try ‘Trolling the League.’ No, really that’s the name of the fic. It’s only 8 chapters, but it’s amusing. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10486210/1/Trolling-the-League. However, it and the other sequels will not make sense with out reading the proceeding fics.

The third in the series is called ‘Sekirei? Is that some new species of little sister?’ The two go to the Sekirei universe (as is stated in the title) so Naruto can find some little sisters (it’s a common theme, he had some in the first story as well). He ends up derailing the Sekirei plan and of course finding some little sisters. This one is 17 chapters and is amusing. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10623866/1/Sekirei-Is-that-some-new-species-of-little-sister.

The last (currently) in this series is called ‘The(questionable) burdens of leadership of a troll Emperor.’ It takes place in the Stargate universe and starts long long before the original movie. Naruto and his wife decide to make an empire for his new little sisters, starting on a distant planet and planning to take over the galaxy(ies). I didn’t finish this today, but hope to tomorrow. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10917821/1/The-questionable-burdens-of-leadership-of-a-troll-Emperor.

To be honest, I haven’t really watched any Stargate before today. So, I watched the original movie to get a feel for it. I liked it, but I could have done without a family member ruining the ending on the way to dinner.

Oh, before I end today, I remembered that with all the Quartermass fics, I forgot to write about the Seerking story that updated on Wednesday. It’s called ‘Campione of the Raging Tides’ and is (obviously) set in the Campione universe. It has the eighth Campione being born, an OC (Original Character) named Jean Campbell. It shows her (re)birth and actions after becoming a Campione. It’s really good, but it’s a yuri(girl with girl) fic. Like I continue to say, Don’t Like, Don’t Read. So many problems could be solved that way. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10973601/1/Campione-of-the-Raging-Tides. See you tomorrow (NOW!).

Saturday

Not really much to say today. I finished The(questionable) burdens of leadership of a troll Emperor and read more of Becoming a Man among Men. The new story I read is called ‘Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope. This is a My Hero Academia and Dragon Ball series crossover (though the author doesn’t label it that way). It has Deku finding his quirk? (This is unknown, it might be he just awakened his heritage as a Sayian. It’s unclear.) while also getting One for All. Watch as he combines them and takes the world by storm. The fic link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12964339/1/Deku-The-Golden-Saiyan-Hero-of-Hope.

Since I mentioned the Dragon Ball series, I might as well go a little bit in depth on it for those who don’t know. The Dragon Ball series’ main character is Goku Son (or Son Goku in Japanese naming with the last name first). Goku is a Saiyan. Saiyans are a species of human like aliens who look human with a tail that can transform into an uncontrollable giant ape during the full moon. They were a mercenary group that took over planets and sold them. Goku was sent to Earth as a baby to destroy it, but an accident erases this instinct.

When he is 11 or 12, a girl named Bulma comes to his mountain home looking for a Dragon Ball. They are a set of seven golden balls with 1-7 stars on them that grant a wish to the one who gathers them. This sets them on journey that leads to many friends and enemies. His journey until he turns 18 (and gets married) happens in Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball Z continues his story and his son Gohan’s as well. There are many movies, specials and games along with newer series Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Heroes. If you want to watch everything, it will take a long time.

Other than that, today was the day that Moltres was available for three hours in raids (PoGo). I went out and got the shiny version (YAY), but right after that the game went buggy and after waiting a while I get went home. I got what I wanted; I don’t need more than one. On to tomorrow!

Sunday

Today had some more new chapters for stories, though they’re all Quartermass ones. The fics were Warlock, Parva Sub Ingenti and Plenipotent Player Prince. I also read a new fic from him called ‘Revenant.’ It’s a Harry Potter and X-Men crossover. After things go wrong and most of his friends die at his & Ginny’s wedding (He does, but Master of Death), Harry takes revenge as is put through the veil, ending up in the Xavier home a few years before the First Class movie. He joins the cast, but how will he change things?   The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12965213/1/Revenant.

I started, but didn’t read much of, ‘One Punch Man: A tad different’ by CrimsonSZ. One Punch Man is about a man called Saitama who trained to be a hero for fun to fight against monsters. However, he is so powerful, one punch is all it takes to kill his enemies. In this fic instead of being ignored by the Hero’s Association, he meets the number 2 hero, Tatsumaki, during the first episode. It’s a bit hard to read, maybe just because of the writing style, but I’ll do my best to finish it. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12725971/1/One-Punch-Man-A-tad-different.

I also read the fic, ‘Reincarnation Roulette’ by Nemesis13. It’s a Code Geass fic with Lelouch having been reincarnated millions of times. This one has him as female and is during the Japanese invasion. Things are very different. It only has 6 chapters, but I’m looking forward to more. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12746654/1/Reincarnation-Roulette.

The last story for today is ‘Remnant’s Maelstrom Shinobi’ by MothBallz. It’s a Naruto and RWBY crossover with Naruto being sent a long time into the future to save him. The future is the RWBY universe. Watch as Naruto adapts and learns what happened to the shinobi world. (doesn’t have very many Naruto characters, mostly referenced). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10788245/1/Remnant-s-Maelstrom-Shinobi.

So you tomorrow, when I post this!

Monday

I started off reading some more of The Remnant Knight and One Punch Man: A tad different, but haven’t finished rereading them yet. There were some more new chapters: Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies that Won’t Stop Buggin Me, Mauling Snarks, Parva Sub Ingenti and Plenipotent Player Prince.

Then I read a new fic (for me) called ‘The Healing Touch’ by xpegasus. It is a My Hero Academia fic that has Deku finding that he does have a quirk that allows him to heal himself and others when he meets All Might. It’s interesting. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12915297/1/The-Healing-Touch.

I started reading another My Hero Academia fic named ‘Headstart’ by Kamil the Awesome. It has All Might finding Deku 4 years earlier and allowing him to get One for All earlier and train with it. Find out how it changes many things. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12389062/1/Headstart.

I started rereading a fic called ‘Viridescent’ by darkfire1220 that is also a My Hero Academia fic. It has Deku having a quirk, but not using it because he is afraid of other’s reactions to it. This is because it is the same as his (OC) villain father’s. It has him getting One for All, but also attracting All for One’s attention. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12659220/1/Viridescent.

I read a lot of My Hero Academia fics today, right? The last one is called ‘Prime Directive: Hero’ by awkardnaut626. It has Deku finding out he does have a quirk at 4, that allow him to analyze anything, including quirks, and use it (including other’s quirk powers). See how this changes things. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12914247/1/Prime-Directive-Hero.

The last fanfiction I read today was ‘Time and Sand’ by Scififan33.   It is a Star Wars story (yeah, I’m not going to explain this one. Look it up if you don’t know.). Luke ends up in the past before Episode I on Tatooine. He ended up there after an AU (Alternate Universe) of The Last Jedi where Luke goes with Rey to Ben. He takes in Anakin and his mother and teaches him. See how things change. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12410879/1/Time-and-Sand.

Hope more people come to the blog and see everyone on Thursday!

Seventh Day

Wow, with today’s post I will have posted every day for a week.  Wednesday is also one of my favorite days because one of my favorite fanfiction authors posts today.  His user name is Seerking and he has many stories from many stories.  He has a 12 week schedule where he posts to one story in the list in order every week today.  There are stories that are on pause for now, but 12 stories is a lot to concentrate on anyway.

The one he posted to today was ‘Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji.’  The story its based off of is called “Zero no Tsukaima” or “Familiar of Zero” and is the story of a young man from earth (Saito), summoned to another world by a mage who usually can only cause explosions (Louise the Zero).  The young man can’t do much, but his skills are slowly revealed and his helps his master defend her home.  In the fanfiction though, Saito has been trained to be an Onmyoji (talisman user) before he is summoned and uses his skills to help Louise and try to break the familiar bond and return home.

I’ll talk about the rest of his fanfics as the weeks go on or I reread them.  The link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10090792/1/Zero-no-Tsukaima-Saito-the-Onmyoji.  The link to Seerking’s profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4583733/SeerKing.

Moving on, I finished rereading Recoil and went through my drives to find the reading fanfiction I had started for it and started editing it again.  After I started the second actual reading chapter, I realized I need more characters.  So, I went through and made physical copies of the notes of things to change on a printed copy of the story, but never made the changes.  Therefore, currently I am making those changes and once I get to chapter ten of the reading I’ll start posting it once or twice a week.  This is so I have some backlog in case I can’t write a chapter for some reason, so look forward to it because I will definitely tell y’all when I post it!

I reread a fanfiction called ‘Play Fake, Kwami’ by Raydara12.  This is a “The Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir” fanfiction.  For those who don’t know about the show it is a French animated show about two middle school kids (Marinette and Adrian) getting jewelry and small talking animal that allow them to become Ladybug and Chat Noir (it’s pronounced ‘Cat Noir’ if you didn’t know) to defeat the villain Hawk Moth’s victims while dealing with middle school life and crushes (Marinette has one for Adrian and Chat Noir has one for Ladybug).  Oh and did I forget to mention that they don’t know each other’s secret identities.  It’s definitely marketed more of young girls, but it’s a good show anyway.

In the fanfiction (which is only 7 actual chapters even though it says 10) Marinette’s talking animals Tikki (which are called Kwami) is accidentally revealed and pretends to be a toy.  Adrian reveals his Kwami (Plagg) to help her and they realize who the other is.  After getting together, they decide to prank Hawk Moth … read to find out how!  Here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12383399/1/Play-Fake-Kwami.

I also rewatched the first episode of a silly anime called “Servant x Service.”  It’s about some newcomers to the Japanese Civil Service office and their coworkers.  The main character, who I’ll just call Yamagami for now, joins in order to find the person who allowed her parents to name her.  Her full name (as we know it) is – Lucy Kimiko Akie Airi Shiori Rinne Yoshiho Chihoko Ayano Fumika Chitose Sanae Mikiko Ichika Yukino Reina Eri Ai Tamiko Chikage Emilia Julia Shizue Erina Chisa Yumeka Natsuki Ranran Rieko Setsuri Chikako Azumi Marina Hideko Chiaki Misaki Naomi Campbell Miku Yuka Masako Sachiko Nana Mutsumi Haruka Yuna Shimako Yukie Rin Sakura Kanna Wakana Hazuki Honami Ruri Mihane Momoka Himari Nozomi Futaba Mayuyu…(still continues)…Yamagami.  Yeah, I’m not kidding.  Yutaka Hasebe is a fellow newcomer who likes to tease her and slack off.  The anime is about them living their lives and learning how to be civil servants.  Look it up if it sounds fun to you!

I also read a chapter in Ashes of the past and an omake for Taylor Varga that involved Doctor Who.  I also finally got to the 3rd set of the Celebi quests on PoGo this morning, but now I have to hatch 9 eggs.  It will be a little bit before I get that as I have mostly 5, 7, and 10 km eggs currently.  Nothing else to say today.  Look forward to posting tomorrow in the new week!
