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!

Weekend of a Few Readers – 2019 Version

Hello my friends! It’s another Monday with very little traffic over the weekend. I was wondering why there were no votes on my pole and now it’s obvious that it’s because there was next to no one who had heard about it. I’ll post the link again in this post in the hope that someone will read this and vote – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

Anyway, I spent sometime continuing rereading Taylor Varga, Outfoxed and Neo Yondaime Hokage, finished rereading How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk and Prime Directive: Hero and reread History’s Strongest Disciple Again?! The new chapters for the weekend were from: Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks (Fri & Mon), Taylor Varga (Fri, Sat & Sun), Relic of the Future, The Reclamation of Black Magic, Muggleborn Teacher, The Unseen Hunt, The Healing Touch and Tsunami. I wonder if anyone would be interested in me making a page with the fanfiction/online stories links I’ve posted on it. Maybe the next poll if anyone ever votes on this one.

I started off by reading (for the first time) a fanfiction by lazybum89 called ‘A Conversation with the Master of Death.’ It’s an Avengers/Harry Potter crossover that has Phil Coulson meeting with ‘The Master of Death’ when Loki shoots him. He’s surprised to learn that he’s not the only one of the team to have met him. What will happen next? I’ll find out when you do because it only has 3 chapters so far and was last updated in Jan last year. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9594344/1/A-Conversation-with-the-Master-of-Death.

Next I wanted to read a fanfiction, but I hadn’t read the other story it was a crossover with. The webcomic is called “Looking for Group” and is an amusing comic about a Dark Elf named Cale’anon who wants to be a hero, but ends up with people who are villains. This means mostly the first other character he meets, the warlock Richard, who loves killing and setting things on fire. It’s over a thousand pages, but I’ve only read almost 300 currently. The link to the first page is here – https://www.lfg.co/page/1/.

I also reread another of VFSNAKE’s fics called, ‘Rewriting History.’ It’s a Naruto fic about how things went wrong after the last war and Naruto ends up in the past to fix the future, starting with stopping his clan’s village from being destroyed. Watch as he thwarts plots and help those he cares about live happy lives. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11636547/1/Rewriting-History.

Following that, I started read more sakurademonalchemist stories that I haven’t read before (none of which are finished, of course). The first one is called ‘Chaos Hunter,’ which is crossover between Supernatural and Slayers. “Slayers” is an older anime, based off light novels, about a powerful sorceress called Lina Inverse and her companions. She loves money, treasure and food and often overpowers her spells causing tons of damage. It was one of the most popular of the 1990s.

In the fic, she is transported to the Supernatural world and ends up with Sam instead of Jess at the beginning of the series. She works with the Winchesters to find their father and becomes a Hunter of her own. Watch as she changes things up with her Chaos, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11380493/1/Chaos-Hunter.

Next is ‘Wizard’s Law,’ which is a crossover between Harry Potter and “Law and Order: SVU.” Law and Order: SVU (or Special Victims Unit) a show is about detectives in the (fictional) 16th Precinct of New York PD who deal with crimes against children (sexual or otherwise) and the elderly. It’s interesting and I haven’t watched in a while, cause it’s been on since 1999 (on it’s 20th season now). Based on it’s predecessor “Law and Order,” it’s more popular (as evidenced in the fact it’s still going while the other one ended).

The story has the lead female detective, Olivia Benson; finding out Harry Potter is her distant cousin. He is sent to live with her after 4th year and decides he doesn’t want to go back. In-between baking sweets for the precinct and foiling the attempts of the order to get him back, his life is still anything but normal. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11349550/1/Wizard-s-Law.

Then came ‘The Greatest Prank,’ which the one I read Looking for Group for, as it crossovers with Harry Potter in this fic. After first year, Harry sends an owl message to (what he believes is) a fictional warlock named Richard. When he goes to Hogwarts for his second year, he finds out that self-same Richard is the new DADA teacher. What will be in store for the poor denizens of Hogwarts with him in castle? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11246463/1/The-Greatest-Prank.

Following that was ‘A Deal Made in Good Faith,’ which is proof sakurademonalchemist can write longer fics (42 chapters, but still not finished). It’s a crossover mainly between Harry Potter and Supernatural, but there are others stories in there. Female Harry accidentally performs a demon summoning ritual and Crowley comes to investigate. Finding her, he makes a deal with Petunia for her and takes her to Hell. However, she is not tortured or turned into a demon. He wants to use her to finally get the contracts on Voldemort and Dumbledore that are overdue. Follow her as she works to get them or pay their price herself. All of which can be found, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10916724/1/A-Deal-Made-in-Good-Faith.

‘Curses and Cures’ is the next one. It’s a crossover between Ranma ½ and Fruits Basket. Kyo goes on a training trip to China and finds himself with a curse from the Jusenkyo. This is not a great thing, but he finds out it nulls his Cat curse when active. Using this and his new skills from training with the Amazons, he’ll take the Fruits Basket world by storm. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11290729/1/Curses-and-Cures.

Finally, I read ‘Back in Black,’ which is primarily a Harry Potter and Supernatural crossover. Years after defeating Voldemort, Harry finds he can’t live in his loveless life anymore and asks Death to reincarnate him where he’ll have love in his life. Death reincarnates him as Dean Winchester, with no immediate access to his previous life. Watch as a Harry-influenced Dean changes the plans made by demon and angel, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10631516/1/Back-in-Black.

Warning!  There are male-male relationships in this story. It’s not for a while, but it’s pretty blatant later (but no sex scenes). If that offends you, or you just don’t want to read it, follow my policy, “Don’t Like, Don’t Read.” It’s just that simple.

That’s it for the weekend, thanks for reading and hope more people do. Remember to vote on the poll and I’ll y’all on Thursday!

Have a Happy Halloween!

Friday

Today, I finished Angry Harry and the Seven, read a few more chapters of Fate’s Gamble and reread Hollow Magic (yeah, it was as bad as I remembered). I also read new chapters for Queen of the Seas (2 chapters one late last night after I posted and another midday), Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks, Stand Together and Smile, and Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers (2 same times as Queen). I also read 2 Tokyo Ghoul crossovers by Quatermass.

The first one is a one shot that is called ‘The Cleaner with a Kagune.’ It’s a crossover with Black Lagoon and has the cleaner Sawyer being a Ghoul. It’s not much, but it’s okay. The link to it is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13088851/1/The-Cleaner-with-a-Kagune.

The second one is called ‘The Raptor of the 20th Ward.’ It’s a Harry Potter crossover that has Harry being a human taken in by the Fueguchi’s (Hinami’s family if you don’t recongnize it). He grows up in Japan and ends up masking up to help the non-evil ghouls and to take back Kagune from the Doves. He ends up helping Ken getting through his situation. There are six chapters for this fic currently. This is M-rated for Tokyo Ghoul universe, so watch out! It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13097687/1/Raptor-of-the-20th-Ward.

I also read another of Seerking’s fics that’s not being updated, ‘Ranma Saotome, Chi Master.’ It’s a Ranma ½ fic that has Ranma being smarter and more powerful because he and his father left for China a year earlier and he had a different teacher for the first year. He’s stable (and had his father’s influence flushed away) and works to help Akane soon after he gets to Nerima. I like it a lot, but I wish he would update it more. The 24 current chapters can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10092339/1/Ranma-Saotome-Chi-Master.

Lastly started rereading a Ranma ½ time travel fic called ‘Ranma, the Second Time Around’ by kayemsi. It has Ranma getting killed by a demon while a college because of Happosai. He is sent back to the morning when he gets the curse. He cannot stop himself or his father from getting their curses, but is able to save Ryoga. After heading back to Nerima he works to make things better with Akane and let them have a better relationship. The author hasn’t updated since 2009, so I doubt it’ll  be finished. It’s still a good story with 93 chapters so, if you want to read it, its link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/1988140/1/Ranma-the-Second-Time-Around.

I’ll end here and see you all on the next line!

Saturday

I read some more Ranma, the Second Time Around, but nowhere near the end. There were also new chapters for Harry Potter and the Stargate, Harry Potter and the Immortals, Relic of the Future, and Demon Lord of the End (an Omake). I finished watching the third season of the rebooted Doctor Who (I’ve read fanfiction, but never really watched past the beginning of the third season) and the short called Time Crash inbetween it and the Christmas Special that year.

I also watched the rest of season one of “Torchwood,” which is an off-shoot of Doctor Who. It follows Jack Harkness’ (from the first season of the Doctor Who reboot) Torchwood crew up until his showing up at the end episodes of DW season 3. They deal with Rift events at Cardiff and other abnormal events. It’s pretty good (and LBGT for those who are interested in that).

I also watched the first episode of “The Good Place.” I’m not sure if I’ll watch more, but it seems weird and that not all of them deserve to be in a ‘Heaven’ place. It’s okay, but yeah not sure.

I read a short but interesting Harry Potter fic called ‘Memoriae’ by Crymson Ash. It has the Goblet showing memories for each champion to show why they were chosen. It was okay, but nothing to write home about if you know what I mean. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12315769/1/Memoriae.

Next I read a new story called ‘Massacre in the Dungeons’ by Marylou. It has the troll from first year really being in the dungeons and killing and hurting some Slytherins. The story deals with the fallout and Dumble-dork’s plans falling apart. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12065437/1/Massacre-in-the-Dungeons.

The last new story I started reading was ‘The XXXX You Say’ by Selector. The X’s mean exactly what you think they do (it’s the first line of the story too). It has Harry going to the Goblins after he gets his notice because of the Dementor attack before his 5th year. He decides to xxxx the British wizarding world and goes to America with Hermione and everyone he can save. It also has muggle government and powerful Harry. I’ll also put a trigger warning here for mentions of non-con sex (no actual, just implied). The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12264641/1/The-XXXX-You-Say.

Lastly, I started rereading ‘The Realm of Passing’ by Oracle2Phoenix. It’s a Harry Potter fic that has him getting hit by the killing curse in the graveyard. He meets his parents and they help him and give him some information. He works to find out how to get rid of Voldie while away from Dumbles. It’s a 10 chapter, unfinished Harry/Ginny fic and hasn’t been updated since 2013 (though one of their fics was updated in August). Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8207941/1/The-Realm-of-Passing.

Nothing more today, see you on the flip-side.

Sunday

I read some more The XXXX You Say and Harry Potter: Choices and finished the Realm of Passing. There were new chapters for Raptor of the 20th Ward, The Unseen Hunt, and Queen of the Seas. I also read a few one-shots today.

The first two are from Oracle2Phoenix. The first is called ‘Harry, the Doctor and the Ponds’ and is a Harry Potter and Doctor Who crossover. Okay it’s not really a one-shot, but the author hasn’t posted a new chapter since 2012 so it’s a one shot to me. It has the Doctor finding Harry as Voldie dies in 1981. He takes him in to raise him. It can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7903544/1/Harry-the-Doctor-and-the-Ponds.

The second one is a one shot called, ‘Setting the Record Straight.’ It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry goes to Little Hangleton after the war to exonerate Frank Bryce in the eyes of the town. You can read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8017133/1/Setting-the-Record-Straight.

I also read two one-shots by kb0. The first one was Harry Potter: Unchampion. It has Harry deciding to not participate and rebel a year earlier. It’s a Harry/Ginny fic and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3793741/1/Harry-Potter-Unchampion. The second one was ‘Harry Potter’s Reaction to the Marriage Law.’ It has a marriage law being made the year after the war (led by the surviving blood purists). Harry decides to run with as many people as he can save to France and to leave the British wizarding world to slowly fall apart. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6049450/1/Harry-Potter-s-Reaction-to-the-Marriage-Law.

I also read a fic I haven’t read before by kb0 called, ‘Harry Potter: Ironwizard.’ It’s a Harry/Hermione story that has Hermione helping Harry make an Ironman armor to go against the Death Eaters and Voldemort. It’s a completed 10 chapter story that’s pretty interesting. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12706376/1/Harry-Potter-IronWizard.

I started rereading a fic by Arthur Hansen called ‘Falling Iron.’ It’s an Avengers and Worm crossover that has Ironman ending up in the Worm-verse before he can fall back through the wormhole in the first Avengers movie. Taylor helps him and she becomes his assistant. The link to the fic – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9705512/1/Falling-Iron.

Lastly I started reading a fic called ‘Memories of Iron’ by becuzitswrong. It’s an Ironman and Worm-verse crossover.  It has Taylor getting accused of stealing test answers the semester before the locker. The night it happened she is given the memories of a dying Tony Stark from a doomed universe (a much later than where the MCU is currently Tony). She uses this to help save her universe. It’s almost finished (I think) but hasn’t been updated since 2016, so … Anyway, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10230499/1/Memories-of-Iron.

See everyone when I post this tomorrow!

Monday

I read some more Memories of Iron and finished Falling Iron. There were new chapters for Mauling Snarks, Queen of the Seas and (drum roll please) Pick Up the Pieces and Rebuild! The author is going to be posting the last (I assume) two chapters over the next two days, so I’m looking forward to it! Maybe they’ll start working on Black Sky again!!!

Other than that I started rereading ‘The Accidental Bond’ by kb0. It’s a Harry Potter fic were Harry has a power to bond witches he saves to himself. He cannot control it and it’s about how he deals with it. The story is a Harry/Hermione/Ginny/Gabrielle Delacour fic. It’s a very good fic in my opinion and I look forward to rereading more of it tomorrow. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5604382/1/The-Accidental-Bond.

I’ll wish everyone a Happy Halloween a few days early and I’ll post next on All Saints’ Day!

Watch Out For Ghouls!

Tuesday

Today’s going to be a bit long, just so you know. Something I didn’t mention yesterday (because I was running out of time) was that the author brown phantom posted a lot. I follow his account so I get updates even for stories I haven’t read. There were a few that I read the new update so I’ll talk about them for now.

Trigger Warning!

‘Keibatsu’ is about a Naruto AU where the Fourth Hokage rapes Kushina to make Naruto. When she’s killed she releases the Kyuubi and after rampaging for her sake, he is sealed into Naruto. The Fourth decides to pretend to die and lead Akatsuki. The leadership (and most of the village) follow his plan and it works until Naruto finds the Third’s journal detailing what has happened and is planed for him. He escapes and takes Hinata (the only one that doesn’t hate him, despite many attempts to force her to) with him. Kyuubi helps and they decide to go against Konoha. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8636728/1/Keibatsu.

Trigger Warning! End

The second one is called ‘Secret Saotomes’ and is a crossover between Ranma 1/2 and an American TV show (that I’ve never seen before) called Secret Saturdays. The Saotomes take the place of the family in the show and are trying to save ‘cryptids’ from the bad guys. It’s okay, but knowing more about the show would be better. Maybe I’ll watch it sometime. The link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11061520/1/Secret-Saotomes and here’s the link to brown phantom’s FF.net profile page – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1634435/brown-phantom.

I read new chapters for GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There, Master Potter of Kamar-Taj and Seerking’s Asylum (the end of the current short story that he might continue or somebody else might adopt). I also finished rereading Harry Potter – Three to Backstep and reread Enough (the White Angel of Auralon story that ended recently).

There was a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned, called ‘Son of Holmes’ by Syliphen Zora Riddle. It’s a crossover with the British show “Sherlock” and Harry Potter. It has a wizard killing the Dursleys when Harry was young. He kills them thinking that Dudley was Harry (as he was in his cupboard at the time). When Sherlock Holmes (who’s a wizard) investigates, he finds and adopts Harry. It’s not very far in, but it looks interesting. The fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12613594/1/Son-of-Holmes.

I also started reading ‘Naruto: Shinobi Institute of Performance Analysis’ by MaxFic. It’s a Naruto fic that has his team going through a program (the one mentioned in the title) that Orochimaru suggested to find out what each shinobi is good at and suggest paths when Kakashi cannot meet them the first day because of an important mission. It’s really good and shows how people’s issues should be dealt with unlike how they’re dealt with in most shows. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9145129/1/Naruto-Shinobi-Institute-of-Performance-Analysis.

I also started watching Tokyo Ghoul, but decided that reading the manga would be more interesting. I know many people like it and I figured with Halloween coming up, it would be a good one to read. I finished the original manga right before this and will start reading it’s sequel Tokyo Ghoul:re tomorrow.

For those who don’t know, Tokyo Ghoul is about a world where human and ghouls live together. Ghouls eat humans and hide from them (the only way to tell by looking at them is if they want to eat and their black and red eyes are showing). In this Ken Kaneki gets a date with a girl who turns out to be a ghoul that tries to eat him. She is ‘killed’ in an ‘accident’ and a doctor implants parts of her in him to ‘save his life’ (There are reasons those are in quotes that you have to read the story to understand). He wakes up a ghoul and has to deal with his new urges and one eye that turns red when he’s hungry. Watch as he shakes up the world in Tokyo Ghoul!

Other than that, PoGo started their Halloween event. Two new Pokémon (Drifloon and Stunky) and their evolutions are now available in the wild. I got at least one of each and hope to evolve them soon. Also there’s a new 3 part special research to get Spiritomb (stock up on Berries, you’re going to need at least 108 of them just for the first set of three quests).

That’s it for today! See you on the next line tomorrow!

Wednesday

Lol, so I’m obviously a little off today. For a little while, even though I knew that there was a Wednesday only event happening, I thought it was tomorrow and felt I had to rush back home to finish the post. It wasn’t until I got a few lines in below that I realized and laughed at myself.

So I read and finished Toyko Ghoul:re. At first I was a little confused because the main character was different (and I didn’t know him), but I realized that things were fine and that he was someone from the first manga (just very different). (This is as far as I got, btw). I’m not going to spoil things, but Sasaki Haise is someone from the first Tokyo Ghoul (so keep reading even if you’re a little confused). Hope people read both of them!

There were updates for Harry Potter and the Stargate, Mauling Snarks (a PHO interlude), and Heroes Assemble!. There was also Seerking’s new chapter for his next story in the rotation, ‘Worm – Waterworks.’ It’s a Worm story that has Taylor gaining the power to control water, a hydrokinetic to be scientific. This changes a few things. It’s on its eleventh chapter and it’s pretty good (in my humble opinion). This story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11847642/1/Worm-Waterworks.

Other than reading a few more chapters in Fate’s Gamble, I started rereading another of Sinyk’s stories, ‘Angry Harry and the Seven.’ It’s a Harry Potter story that has him with eidetic memory and an angry streak because of the soul fragment in his scar before he gets to Hogwarts. This leads to many changes. It’s also a Harry/Daphine Greengrass story, if that matters to people. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9750991/1/Angry-Harry-and-the-Seven.

I caught a few more Pokémon in PoGo and evolved Drifloon, but still need more Stunky’s. Still haven’t used 108 berries (because I used them all in the Community Day), but I’m working on it. Nothing else for today, see you on the actual posting day, Tomorrow!

Thursday

Today was a pretty singular story day. I mostly focused on Harry Potter and the Seven (it has 87 and I’m on chapter 79 now). There was a new chapter from Seerking’s Asylum (a second chapter from the one on chapter 69), but that was it for one’s I’ve mentioned before. There was a new (and final) chapter for ‘Hollow Magic’ by Baleygr.

It’s a Harry Potter and Bleach crossover that has Harry betrayed by his friends and in a plot by Voldemort is sent to Azkaban after the fifth book. Being in the presence of dementors causes him to faint eventually and he awakens Ulquiorra Cifer’s memories and becomes him. He gets out and works to finish his business in England to get to Orihime in Japan. This is a short story (9 chapers) and it’s kinda, meh, in my books. This last chapter is just a ‘things happen and it’s the end’ ending. The author hasn’t read the end of Bleach and just kinda blahs it.   If you want to read it, here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12038508/1/Hollow-Magic

I also evolved Stunky, Buneary and fully evolved the fire started for the fourth gen to get Infernape. This means I’m only missing Torterra, Empoleon (the final evolution of the grass and water starters respectively), Staraptor, Luxio, Luxray (the evolutions of Shinx that you can only get in a raid currently), Spiritomb, Riolu, Lucario, and the two regionals, Chatot and Carnivine of the Gen 4 that are out. I also finally used 108 berries and was able to get to the second set of three tasks. Now I have to catch 108 Pokémon (which for me is much easier than the berries, cause you don’t have to spin stops to catch Pokémon [other than for pokéballs and I have plenty of regular ones] and I already have 27), catch 10 dark types (I only need one more) and spin 8 Pokéstops I haven’t before (which should be fairly simple, just go to a part of the city I don’t go to much and it’ll be easy). Hopefully, I’ll be done tomorrow with it and I’ll catch Spiritomb!

That was the last thing I did today, so I’ll see everyone on Monday! Bye-ni!

Monday, Monday

Friday

Sorry again for being late for the last post. I got the normal new chapter for Mauling Snarks along with a new one for Cambion. Other than reading some more Harry Potter and the Daft Morons, I read some new chapters for fics I haven’t mentioned before and actually read a physical book!

The first of the new chapters was for ‘Master Potter of Kamar-Taj’ by Ryuko monogatari. If I mentioned this one before, bear with me (I looked when I got the last updates and couldn’t find them mentioned on the corresponding days on the blog). It’s an Avengers and Harry Potter crossover where Harry studies under Doctor Strange before going to Hogwarts. It’s almost to the end of first year, storyline wise. I enjoy it and it updates monthly recently. The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12256909/1/Master-Potter-of-Kamar-Taj.

The second fanfic I read only the first chapter, but it’s finished. It’s called ‘Second Chances are Fought For’ by fg7dragon. It’s a Naruto and Fate/Stay Night crossover that has Naruto being summoned by Rin instead of Archer (EMIYA). He changes everything. It’s a cool fic for only having 4 chapters, so I definitely suggest it. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12990444/1/Second-Chances-are-Fought-For.

fg7dragon is a good author and I would recommend them, but there are a few fics they haven’t updated in a good while. I’ll get around to them, but Naruto is a common theme between most of their fics. The link to their FF.com page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2085016/fg7dragon.

The last new chapter was from ‘Game On! 3 0’ by nordiamus. It’s the third in the Game On! Series. It’s about Harriet Potter who died sometime after becoming the Master of Death. She chooses to reincarnate several times helping heroes in order to save her mother’s soul. She at least gets a Gamer system to help her. The first fic has her in KHR. The second fic has her in Fullmetal Alchemist. The one I got several updates for today has her in InuYasha. The link to the first one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11799646/1/Game-On.

Well since I just mentioned two series I haven’t talked about yet, I’ll talk about them before I go into the book. Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) is about Edward and Alphonse Elric who are alchemists. Their mother died when they were young (and their father left before that [the story eventually explains it]) so they tried to do the forbidden and bring her back. As a reward, Ed lost a leg and an arm and Al lost his body and his soul is bonded into a suit of armor. Ed gets an automail (a fully functioning mechanical replacement) arm and leg and joins the military to find a way to recover what was taken from them. Many things happen along the way and long hidden secrets are revealed. I would very much suggest this, in its manga and second anime at least. The original FMA was okay for a while, but then diverted and I at least wasn’t a huge fan. FMA: Brotherhood was really good though.

InuYasha is about a young 1990’s high school girl, Kagome, getting dragged into a well at her home (in a shrine) and ending up in the Edo period (between 1603 and 1868, don’t know when during it). There she finds out that demons are real and that she is the reincarnation of the priestess Kikyo who died in that period over half a century ago. Kikyo was the guardian of the Shikon Jewel and it reappeared in Kagome’s body. She frees a half dog-demon InuYasha (who was sealed by Kikyo and has a history with her) to save her from another demon who wants the jewel. Soon the Jewel is shattered (by Kagome on accident) and she, InuYasha and friends they find along the way have to find all the pieces to complete the Jewel and stop others from using it for evil. Luckily, she can at least return home sometimes, though InuYasha can follow her. I recommend this one as well, both the manga and anime.

Finally, I read the first book in the Baccano! series that I mentioned last time. It’s called “The Rolling Bootlegs” and focuses on how both groups get their immortality, though not much about the first group. I was wrong last time, there are 22 books out and the 23rd is the one delayed. That’s it for today, see you on the next line!

Saturday

I read several completely new fics today, but also some new chapters. The new chapters were from Harry Potter and the Stargate, Stand Together and Smile and Relic of the Future. I also read till chapter 64 (of 84) of Harry Potter and the Daft Morons.

The first new fic was ‘Protector of the Fairies’ by Takei Daloui. It’s a Fairy Tail and Bleach crossover. It has Bleach elements built into the Fairy Tail world rather than having a character (or two) just dropped into it. It’s interesting, I haven’t finished it (I’m reading it slowly on the side) as it has 251 chapters and it’s not finished yet. The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9546139/1/Protector-of-the-Fairies.

The second new story is ‘Relics of the Past’ by Cyrro. It’s Naruto fic where Iruka is from Whirlpool and takes Naruto in when he’s young. Along with a female Itachi and Sasuke, things are gonna be weird. I also haven’t finished this one because it’s 183 chapters. I’m going to be reading these with a few chapters a day, if that. The link to this fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12337052/1/Relics-of-the-Past.

The last new story is called ‘Clouds in the Sky’ by EriLenx07. It’s a crossover with Harry Potter and KHR. It has a female Harry meeting Hibari in her neighborhood after 5th year (because Vernon is in the mafia). They then spend many hours together. At least, Harriet is back at Hogwarts in the story now (the author spent too much time pre-Hogwarts in my opinion). It’s unfinished, but interesting. The story link is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12482507/1/Clouds-in-the-Sky.

Finally I read the pdf version of the second of the Baccano! light novels, “1931 – The Grand Punk Railroad – Local Episode.” By the way, the author’s name is Ryohgo Narita (I don’t think I mentioned that).

See you soon!

Sunday

There’s not much for today, though there were quite a few new chapters today. Here’s a list of them: The Unseen Hunt, It Gets Worse (this was the last chapter), The Remnant Knight, Enough (the second to last chapter) and Rising Dragon, Hidden Hammers. I also finished rereading Harry Potter and the Daft Morons (I hope Sinyk gets back to it soon).

I read two chapters of Honestly Harry – The Year of the Rock. However, the only other thing was the pdf of the third Baccano! light novel, “1931 – The Grand Punk Railroad – Express Episode.”

What shall I talk about in this free space? Hm, how about I talk about one of my favorite manga/animes Case Closed (in America, even though it stopped being dubbed after 6 seasons) or Detective Conan. It’s about Shinichi Kudo (I’m going with the Japanese names in English style. Why? Because I watch mostly the sub version to keep up), whose a high school detective that has helped the police solve many cases. He goes to a theme park with his not-girlfriend Ran Mori and after he solves a case there, follows some shady men. One of them catches him and forces him to take a poison that should kill him. However, it actually de-ages him to elementary school age. He eventually ends up staying with Ran and her (not very good) detective father, Kogoro Mori. Neither knows who he really is and he depends on his inventor neighbor to help him solve Kogoro’s cases for him. All while trying to find the people who did this to him to get back his body. This is no easy task, as is shown in that it’s still going after 24 years (the manga started in 1994 and isn’t finished yet). It has over 1000 chapters (though it’s on hiatus for the author’s medical treatment), over 900 episodes and over 20 movies. It must be doing something right. The animation is older at first, but gets better as the years go by. I really recommend this to anyone who is a fan of mystery shows.

Nothing more for today, post is tomorrow!

Monday

My dog kept me up again because of storms, but I slept late so I’m okay. The only new chapter (from a story I’ve already talked about) I got today was Mauling Snarks, I guess to make up for yesterday’s haul. I got a new chapter for a Seerking story (one that’s not in his normal rotation) called ‘Ranma: Happenstance Gone Right.’ It’s a Ranma ½ story that has Akane not being able to be his fiancée after a diversion in one of the events that makes it so that only Shampoo and Ukyo can marry him. This changes many things. Want to know which? Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12327523/1/Ranma-Happenstance-Gone-Right.

I also rewatched the first few episodes of Log Horizon. It’s a light novel turned anime about a lot of people playing an online game being transported into the game. The main character, Shiroe, along with his friends have to figure out how to live in this new situation while trying to figure out what happened. I like this one and have watched it several times, I hope a third season eventually comes out.

I also reread ‘The Road not Taken’ by sbmcneil. It’s a Harry Potter fic that has Sirius meeting Harry after he runs away in the third book and taking him away for the summer. It’s a short story (only 14 chapters) with Harry/Ginny. I like it and I hope you do to. If you want it, it’s here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12072766/1/The-Road-not-Taken.

I last story I started rereading today was ‘Harry and Ginny: A Love Story’ by Epeefencer. It’s a Soul Bond that happens after the Chamber. Harry is drawn to help Ginny and its discovered they have a soul bond. Forces work to help and protect them, while Dumbledore is trying to find out why his plans have gone wrong. It’s interesting and I suggest it, even if it hasn’t been updated since 2015 (the author updates some of their other fics, sometimes). The link to it is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7483183/1/Harry-and-Ginny-A-Love-Story.

I’ll call it a day and get this posted! See you on Thursday! (For real this time!)

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!

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!
