A Sad End to a Week

Hello everyone!  This week was cooler, and I didn’t work as much, but it was also sad.  A co-worker I didn’t know that well passed out and was taken to a hospital yesterday.  We were informed this morning that she didn’t make it.  I don’t know the circumstances as my bosses didn’t know, but there were some emotional outbursts trying to get the company to change some things.  I can understand, but I didn’t feel comfortable with them using what happened to her to try and change things.  I know that people will be looking into how what happened, happened, but things done emotionally in this sort of situation, don’t usually end up going the way you want.

Moving on from that, I finished Harry Potter and the Mutant Academy and reread more of Desperately Seeking Ranma and started rereading Seerking’s Asylum.  The new chapters this week were: Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mending the Knots, The Unseen Hunt, Seerking’s Asylum, Compass of thy Soul, Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Short Story Drabbles (Tues & Fri), Trial by Fire (Tues & Fri), Cage, Price of Blood, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, The Healing Touch, Heroes Assemble!, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Titanfall, Taylor Varga, Ginny’s Plan, Under the Sea, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye, It Gets Worse & Harry Potter and the Chance at a New Life.

There was a Community Day for both Wizard’s Unite and Pokémon GO over the weekend.  The WU one was more of a having more of everything than more of one (although 9 ¾’s foundables were more common in my opinon) and the PoGo one was one mudkip (I got 4).  PoGo also introduced Team GO Rocket and Shadow Pokemon this week.  You can Purify them and make them stronger.

*Spoiler Warning*

So, I saw the new Lion King over the weekend and it wasn’t bad, but it was essentially an almost exact copy of the original, just in ‘live action’.  They changed some of the dialogue and some scenes slightly, but no much.  They made the ‘Be Prepared’ song more of a speech and had Nala leave for the Pride Lands before Simba had his revelation.

That wasn’t to say that I didn’t like it, but I didn’t feel that I really needed to spend the money to see it in theaters.  My biggest problem with it is that in the later scenes, I couldn’t always tell Nala and Sarabi apart.

*End Spoiler Warning*

So I decided to continue the Myrddin de Celestis quest this week.  Soul Armoury (and yes, that is how they spelled it) is a one-shot that I’m surprised wasn’t put in into Mystical Codex.  It’s a Harry Potter fic that has the Dursley’s dropping Harry at his grandparents soon after getting him and they go to Japan to get away Dumbles.  Not much here other than the info section has him at least getting together with the Greengrass sisters.

enLivened Player is a rewrite of at least the previously mentioned ‘Player.’ Sirius fakes his death and leaves a letter telling him (in double speak) and Harry decides to take control of his life (and do as many girls as he can).  He does become a vampire in this one.  There’s also a bit of DC Universe crossover at the end.

Cybertech: War of Evolution is a Marvel and Harry Potter crossover.  It has Harry abandoned with the Dursleys because of a prophecy saying he’ll reveal the Magical World.  He gets away from them and becomes a bigshot tech person.  He finds the Magical World and his twin sister while becoming a superhero and decides to reveal it.

Cybertech: Open Worlds is the sequel and has it and the DC universe merging over a few years.  It’s not finished, and I’m not sure it will be (but maybe because they also were not put in Mystical Codex).  Harry (or Kyle as he renamed himself) goes to the DC universe to help with the ‘convergence’ and helps his younger self from that universe.

Armoured Skill is supposed to be a rewrite of Cybertech stories, but earlier in the Marvel universe.  It’s not really very long and Open Worlds has been updated more recently than this one so… yeah.  Same premise, he just ends up with his ‘grandmother’ and goes against the Magical World because they ‘kill’ his girlfriend (he puts her on ice in the hopes he can revive her).

That’s all I’ll talk about today!  Hope you have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key.

These Fics Almost Made Me Give Up the Quest …

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Quest Will Have an End … Eventually

Hello everyone! It’s Friday again and that means its post time again. I’ve finally activated my email based on this site so please email me with questions or suggestions! I started rereading Jade Angel. The new chapters this week are: Flameheart, The Dragon’s Knight, Heroes Assemble!, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Titanfall, Celestial Worm, Mauling Snarks and Archer.

I didn’t mention it last post, but I did get started on the six in the Honestly Harry series by Captain Compass, Honestly Harry – Greengrass Days and Paradise Nights. It covers the summer between their third and fourth years. After the sudden inclusion of the Greengrass sisters into their lives last year, how will both sides adjust to each of their new situations? With Fudge’s new idea suprising everyone, escaped Death Eaters on the loose and Voldie in the shadows; how will Harry and his ladies deal with everything? Still a great story and still very much an M rated story with sexual situations.

Now, it’s onto the quest to read all of sakurademonalchemist’s stories. There will still be no, firsts, seconds or nexts (it’s a hassle). Potions and Demons is a Harry Potter and InuYasha crossover. It has Snape finding the missing (read stolen) Potter will and becomes Harry’s Guardian after fourth year. He takes Harry to Japan, where Harry meets his wife and children, the Higurashis. Harry ends up in Feudal Japan when he hides with from Fawkes in the Bone Eater’s Well. He travels with the group and helps. He gets along with Sesshoumaru and meets his son when he goes back to his era. Hints of gay Harry, but nothing really mentioned. Don’t Like, Don’t Read. Unless otherwise mentioned, all fics were last updated in 2011 and are incomplete.

Foxes and Owls is a one-shot crossover between Yu Yu Hakusho and Harry Potter. Before third year, Harry goes down Knockturn Alley and buys a strange fox. He names it Kurama. Little does he know that is the injured form of Yoko Kurama, the demon fox. Will Kurama stay with Harry and Hedwig? Who knows.

Fullmetal Gundam is a Fullmetal Alchemist and Gundam Wing crossover. It has Ed ending up in the Gundam universe after being hit with ‘red water.’ He ends up with the Gundam Pilots and stays with them for two years. When he gets back to his universe, he learns it was only minutes there. When the Pilots find their way to his universe, how will his friends keep up? All the pilots and Ed are in gay relationships, Don’t Like, Don’t Read.

(I’m just going to interrupt this by saying, that I’m not gay and I’m don’t read many stories with gay characters. I have nothing against LBGT people and their relationships, but I just don’t choose to read it. Like I always say when I mention it, you have a choice to read something or not. Don’t go after the author just because you aren’t a fan of what they’re writing. I’m reading them because of my quest and because sakura doesn’t tend to do blatant relationships overall. Felt I needed to say that.)

Child of the Wing is a Harry Potter and Gundam Wing crossover where Heero is Harry. The Wizarding World comes for Heero after the war ends and he and his friends are cast into another war. When they are forced to stay in the WW to stay out of sight, how will the WW deal with the Gundam Pilots? I think all of the Gundam Wing stories for a while will have gay Pilots, so Don’t Like, Don’t Read. (also I really don’t think the author likes Relina, she’s usually cast as a stalker).

Sun of the Moon is a Sailor Moon, Harry Potter and Slayers crossover. Harry escapes to the Japan school before fifth year and meets the Sailor Scouts and Chibiusa. When he finds out his mother wasn’t from Earth, he discovers his own powers. How will he deal with his aunt, The Dragon Spooker, along with everything?

Black Cat of Hogwarts is a Black Cat and Harry Potter crossover. Sirius’ son Niko disappears when his father was captured and is presumed dead. Train Heartnet goes to Hogwarts and befriends Harry. Harry joins Chronos and becomes XIV. How will their stories change with each other as a part of them?

Raven Talon Potter is a Maximum Ride and Harry Potter crossover. Maximum Ride is a series about the title character (Maximum ‘Max’ Ride) and her flock of family. They’re hybrid Human-Bird people who were experimented on by The School. The series deals with them escaping and dealing with The School. I’ve maybe read the first book, but it’s been a while.

In the fic, Raven (Harry) is Fang’s twin and has been held by The School for many years. Only when he meets Fang again is he able to escape and return to his original form (explained in the story). How will Raven be able to help them?

Dou’s Brother is a Harry Potter and Gundam Wing crossover where Dou is Harry’s Brother. Dou discovers Harry on assignment in Surrey and they bond over pranks. They eventually learn that Dou is Harry’s brother. How will the other Pilots handle the Wizarding World along with their own war? Another gay Pilots story. Don’t Like, Don’t Read.

Marauders and Gundams is another Harry Potter and Gundam Wing crossover. Harry escapes Grimmauld Place and meets Dou. They start a relationship (yes, they’re gay. Don’t Like, Don’t Read!) and the Pilots decide to go to Hogwarts to escape from OZ.

Gundam Senshi is Gundam Wing and Sailor Moon Crossover where Dou is Peruru, the Dream Elf. The future changes for some reason and Crystal Tokyo is lost. In order to get it back, Dou has to find the Sailor’s descendants and stop the war. As he meets the other Pilots he learns that they are the other descendants. Will they be able to bring back Crystal Tokyo? Don’t know, hasn’t gotten that far yet.

Ichigo Ichihara is a Harry Potter and xxxHolic (with Bleach slightly) crossover. xxxHolic is a manga turned anime that parallels Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. It follows Kimihiro Watanuki and his working at Yuko Ichihara’s shop. It deals with magic and he learns that everything comes at a price.

In the fic, Vernon leaves Harry on Yuko’s lawn soon after the Dursleys find him. She raises him as her son and he gets some of her personality. He sends a copy to Hogwarts, but how long will it last? And will the Wizarding World be able to deal with the real him when the time comes?

That’s all for this week, hope you have a great weekend! I’ll remind everyone that tomorrow will have the Shiny Lotad and Castform event on PoGo. Be sure to get those research quests! See everyone Tuesday! May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Captain Marvel and the Quest (with Some D.N.Angel info)

Hello those few of you who read my blog! It’s been another week of work and as I promised here’s my thoughts on Captain Marvel.

Spoilers Start

So, it was a good movie. We didn’t know for a long time that Carol had been taken against her will by the Kree and that her power was from absorbing the power from the Tesseract engine, not something the Kree gave her. The fact that the Kree were the bad guys doesn’t surprise me, however the fact the Skrull were not did. Are we not going to have a Skrull invasion for the next saga, because that’s what I was honestly expecting? Since we know there will be more Marvel movies, I don’t know where they’re going to go from here. Guess we’ll find out with Avengers: Endgame. (Though maybe more with the Kree since they say they want Captain Marvel, or at least Ronan the Accuser did [which is actually a title, if you didn’t know])

Now onto Fury, he’s amusing in this, especially with Goose the cat. Which is actually a Flerken, an alien with mouth tentacles that eats bad guys (and the Tesseract). The most amusing thing is that Goose is the reason Fury looses an eye. Now as for why Captain Marvel hasn’t been in any of the other movies and Fury didn’t call her. It’s because she was helping the Skrull find a new home and Fury only wanted to call her if something was really wrong. Her flight name on her plane in a picture is the reason why Fury named The Avenger Initiative as it’s named.

Spoilers End

So I’ve finished Honestly Harry and the Founders Chambers (yeah, I mostly skimmed it. It’s my least favorite of the Honest Harry fics (mostly cause of Ginny, not that she’s bad, just how she’s not really in it). The new chapters this week are: The Dragon’s Knight (Wed, Thurs, Fri), Flameheart (Wed, Thurs, Fri), Melody of Fire (Wed & Thurs), Worm – Waterworks (2 chaps, one’s an interlude), Heroes Assemble! (Now on chapter 100), Celestial Worm, Deku: The Telekinetic Hero, Titanfall & Mauling Snarks.

Before we get to my quest, I also read more Honestly Harry stories. First is a 2nd year Christmas side story called A Very Granger Christmas, where the Honestly Harry universe starts into M territory. Yes, they’re young, but they’re honestly older mentally and the bond is pushing them. They don’t ‘do the deed,’ but they explore. Not bad, but I only skimmed this one as well.

Back to the main story, I started reading the next in the series with is the story of the summer before third year called, Honestly Harry – The Unplottable Discoveries. I like this one better than either of the 2nd year fic, but it continues the M situations (and it will continue like this through the most recent story). Watch as Harry and his bondmates deal with the outcome of their 2nd year and prepare for their 3rd year at Hogwarts.

Back to the quest, the first story this time is, Darkened Wizards. It’s a Harry Potter and D N Angel crossover, with some Naruto at the end. Turns out Emiko Niwa (Daisuke’s mom) is Lily’s twin sister and Petunia remembers her after second year. Sending Harry to her for the summer changes things and a changed Harry and Daisuke come to Hogwarts for their third year. How will Harry’s inclusion into the Niwa family change things? And who’s that with Hiwatari? Unless otherwise stated, all fics from now on are unfinished and last updated in 2012.

Second is A Twist in Fate, a Sailor Moon and Naruto crossover. When Usagi is young, a break in at their home has the Tsukino family moving to Konoha. Usagi trains to become a ninja and befriends Itachi. How will this affect her fate as Sailor Moon and what will happen with Mamoru?

Third is Nozomi of the Sand, a Harry Potter and Naruto crossover. Fem Harry goes with the Dursleys to Suna and befriends Gaara and Temari. Later, looking to escape the wizarding world, she joins the village as a civilian contractor. Watch how her presence changes things.

Following that is a two-chapter story called Let’s Play a Game. It’s a Fullmetal Alchemist and Sailor Moon crossover where Ed and Al are sent to the Sailor Moon Universe by Truth’s sister (AKA the author). Ed is turned into a girl and Al is a cat, will they be able to ship up to Scouts, or will they never get home? Will we ever find out? I honestly doubt it.

Then there’s Aburame Lightning, a Harry Potter and Naruto crossover that actually reaches 19 chapters. It has baby Harry being dropped off in front of the Aburame compound and adopted by the Head. Given bugs, he becomes the Heir and eventually befriends Naruto. How will the wizarding world deal with an heir that controls bugs?

Loki Black is next and it’s a purely Harry Potter story. Sirius wakes up the summer before Harry’s first year after falling through the veil. He’s Harry’ age and decides to join Hogwarts as his own son in order to help Harry. A good four chapters, but would ask for more.

After that is Dark Mage of the Zodiac, a Fairy Tail and Harry Potter crossover, with a nod to Fruits Basket. Harry almost dies, but is sent to Fiore by his magic to save him. He’s found by Zeref, who gives him the ‘Dark’ Zodiac Keys. He joins early on and is a prominent member when Lucy joins. The animal forms from Fruits Basket are the ‘Dark’ Zodiac members.

That’s all I’ll talk about for the quest, but I learned that after 8 years that the author of D.N.Angel is finally finishing the story. They’ve published quite a few chapters now, but I could only really find the first of the newest one’s translated online (which also led me to remember that only the first 13 volumes have been published in America). The new chapter and more later can be found at the Facebook Page – Hand of Time Translations. I’m looking forward to more chapters! Thanks everyone for a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

My Thoughts on Kingdom Hearts 3

Hello friends! I finished off Mutant Storm and reread Peace through Power and Enough. I also ordered a KH3 Sora outfit hoodie and Organization 13 trench coat over the weekend. The new chapters for this weekend were: Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life, Tsunami, Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, The Unseen Hunt, Black Sky (a week of updates, YAY), Seerking’s Asylum, Ripple and Mauling Snarks.

Spoilers Start

So I said I would talk about Kingdom Hearts 3 and my thoughts on it. I enjoyed it and all the worlds were fun (though I wish I could have told Baymax that I was satisfied with my care). I heard some opinions that it was too easy and I have to agree. I mean it may just be that I’m older, but I remember having a harder time on standard mode on the earlier games. I also agree with the opinion that it is a very end heavy game because the ‘final battle’ takes a long time to go through with all the cut scenes involved.

Moving on, I’m glad everyone was brought back, but wish we knew more about Xehanort and Eraqus. It seems everything was based on a game they played kids, but they’re two of the characters we know the least about. I wasn’t happy that Sora disappeared in the ending credits, but it’s obviously leading into the next story-line. Also, Luxu and four of the five Union leaders are back. Having Xigbar being Luxu wasn’t as much as a surprise to me as The Master of Masters told him, “You’ll see,” when he was told what was in the box. This indicates that he would be around to see why whatever was in the box.

We also learned that the Dandelion union leaders (and others) found a way to get transported to the future without their memories (as indicated by Ventus, Marluxia and Larxene being in the future, but not remembering the past). Skuld is also possibly mentioned as the unknown girl that was experimented on by Ansem the Wise and the Xehanort-possessed Terra. We only don’t know about Brain and Ephemer (though he showed up [sorta] to help during the pre-final battle) and we might have met Strelitzia in the ‘Final World.’ (If this doesn’t make sense to you, it’s from the phone game, Union x and it’s prequel, x [chi] (though this one was only in Japanese and isn’t around anymore and I didn’t know it was important until after I played KH3).

Finally, what’s up with the secret ending? Do Sora and Riku end up in the Yozora world or The World Ends With You world? And it also looks like the original Union leaders and Luxu will be the enemy this time. And where is the Master of Masters and Union Leader Ava? Hopefully all will be revealed soon. Also I’ve started watching x [chi] on Everglow’s channel on YouTube.

Spoilers End

I started off reading the fanfiction Reasons why HYDRA should not use FedEx by JoyisaBike. It’s a Marvel verse story where Darcy is Tony’s half sister and ends up with a FedEx package with The Winter Soldier in it. Chaos ensues (also around the time Captain America is woken up). Read the three chapters of fun, it made me chuckle.

Next, I read Saviour of Magic by Colt01. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry escapes from Privet Drive while getting beaten by Vernon and ends up in Potter Castle. A ghost relative and the family portraits then raise him. He heads to Hogwarts smart and knowing about magic. This is a very anti-muggle story and that isn’t fully explained until much later in the story, but it almost made me stop reading at times. Still an interesting story though.

Then, I read Secret Love by White Angel of Auralon. It’s a Harry Potter story where Harry and Ginny get together New Years of his 5th year, but they keep it a secret until they accidentally let it out in 6th year. They pretend it’s new and ‘break up’ at the end of the year. Watch how things are different with Ginny having a more prominent influence on Harry earlier.

I also read Muggleborn Teacher by White Angel of Auralon. Again, it’s a Harry Potter story. This time a muggle-born wizard ends up as Harry’s elementary school teacher and helps him get away from the Dursleys. A Harry raised by scorned muggle-borns comes to school, how will that change things?

That’s it for the weekend, hope you have a great week and Valentines Day. I’ll see everyone on Friday. May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

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!

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!

 

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 Diverse Weekend

Friday –

Today was an interesting day as I went through many fanfiction to find one that would keep my attention.  I’ve had this problem before, either I have to find something else to do or I find a fanfiction that can keep my attention.  This one lead me through several including several whose original stories I haven’t mentioned here yet.  I finished reading Heroes Assemble! and then moved onto ‘Skittering Campione’ by Greatazuredragon.  It’s a crossover between Worm (Skitter is Taylor’s first cape name) and a series called Campione!.   It was a light novel then became an anime that only has one season so far.  The main character (Godo Kusanagi) is a normal high school student until on trip he finds himself in a fight between two gods who have become ‘Heretic’ (meaning they rebel against being wherever they normally are and cause destruction to the world).  Through a set of unlikely circumstances (Or the most obvious circumstances if you look at how often that happens in stories), Godo defeats one of the Gods with the help of a ‘witch’ and becomes a Campione or God Slayer.  This means he gets power from the God(s) he defeats.  Look it up, it’s good.

Anywho, in the fanfiction at the end of Worm, Taylor is transported to Campione! universe and is transformed in a campione because of her defeat of the big bad of her universe.  Watch as her actions change the Campione! universe for the good, funny and weird.  It’s only 14 chapters so far and the link the fanfiction is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12051295/1/Skittering-Campione.

I went through a few one shots after that and only one was interesting, but it was an omake of a conversation in another fanfiction that would only take longer to go through, so I’ll talk about the omake when I read that fanfiction.  The next one I actually read was ‘A Growing Affection’ by Xavon Wrentaile.  It is a Naruto fanfiction.  Like Harry Potter is the top of the Book section of FF.net in number of stories, so is Naruto the top of the Anime section.  I’m actually surprised it too me this long to get to a Naruto story.  For those of you who don’t know, Naruto is about a young boy who wants to became a ninja and the leader of his village, the Hokage.  The only thing wrong with that is that most of the village hates him because he has a great monster (The Kyuubi) sealed in his gut through no fault of his own.  Watch or read as this boy goes through hard work, teachers who barely teach him anything, getting hit by teammates, betrayal, hate, anger and many other things to save the world and gain the love and affection of the village that hated him (Yeah like KHR, I have some issues with the way the main character is treated.  I mean his godfather doesn’t even come in until after the first few arcs and it’s never even mentioned that he’s his godfather until later when we find out who his parents were in the sequel story set three years after the original story ends.)  There’s also now a story about the new generation out too, Boruto.

Moving on the fanfiction is set in the sequel story Naruto Shippuuden and follows an alternate storyline and focuses on Naruto getting together with Hinata (my favorite pairing that’s also canon) and dealing with the issues around him.  It’s good and is finished with 170 chapters.  The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3916565/1/A-Growing-Affection.  I also read a new chapter of Mauling Snarks (it comes out every Friday and Monday).

I started another new story with a new original story, but since this one is already fairly long, I’ll talk about it tomorrow.  Which you’ll be able to see right away ^_^

Saturday

So I’ll start off the story I mentioned in yesterday’s part, ‘Soul Chess’ by draconichero21.  This a one of favorites and it is a crossover between Code Geass and Bleach.  Bleach, for those who don’t know, is like Naruto as being one of most popular mangas/animes of the past generation (as the original generation of Naruto is finished anyway).  It’s about Ichigo Kurosaki a high school student who can see ghosts.  He has a run in with a Hollow (Monster spirits who want to eat you) and a Shinigami (‘Good’ spirits who have the power to purify Hollows and send ghosts to the afterlife) named Rukia Kuchiki.  He ends up becoming a Shinigami and gets involved in (Wouldn’t you know it) a plot to save the world (because the afterlife is crap and nobles who don’t care about people run it).  Other than my personal issues with the governing system of the afterlife (Soul Society), this is a good story.  Though it gets convoluted in the last arc.

In the fanfiction, Lelouch from Geass ends up in the Soul Society long before even the flashbacks in Bleach.  Watch as his actions change things, for better or worse.  I wouldn’t recommend this unless you’ve at least watched Code Geass and possibly a bit of Bleach too.  It’s 208 chapters and a teaser for a remake fic with more crossover characters in it to be at sometime in the future.  The link to the fanfiction is –  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6953451/1/Soul-Chess.  I only read a few chapters of it for now along with a few Ashes of the Past chapters.

I also reread the fanfiction ‘Pick up the Pieces and Move On’ by the first author I mentioned, Umei no Mai.  It’s a sequel to the fic ‘Pick up the Pieces and Take Stock’ and they both deal with the after story of KHR through the lens of Xanxus in dealing with a ‘father’ who can’t see how he wronged Xanxus, a to-be leader who doesn’t know anything and doesn’t want the job and all the mental and physical issues he’s got because of his upbringing and the KHR story.  They’re both good stories that are 8 chapters each with a third and final story in the works that Umei no Mai will finish before continuing Black Sky.  The link to Take Stock is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12963516/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Take-Stock and the link to Move On is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13014658/1/Pick-up-the-Pieces-and-Move-On.

I read more than 20 chapters of Growing Affection and a new chapter for the story, ‘Stark Imprint’ by Arthur Hansen which is a crossover story between Worm and Ironman.  One of Tony Stark’s suits ends up in the Worm universe and when Taylor finds it (a few years before Worm’s start), it downloads a copy of his brain into hers.  She gets his memories and talents while remaining herself and becomes a non-powered cape in the Worm-verse.  It’s good and the link the 7 chapter story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971451/1/Stark-Imprint.

That’s all I read today, so I’ll see you in a few seconds on Sunday.

Sunday

Today I went to a small birthday dinner for a church friend and learned that her granddchild has written fanfiction and is on FF.net.  I haven’t read either of their stories, but their user name is DesertAnubis.  There is a Dragon Ball Z fic (that’s been abandoned after 35 chapters) and a new Yu-Gi-Oh! fic that has been finished IRL, but is slowly being posted.  The link to their profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2078100/DesertAnubis.

I read some more Soul Chess and Growing Affection, but other than that I just have a story I started rereading and a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned yet.  The story is called ‘Broken Dreams’  by ThunderReborn and is a Bleach story where after the Winter War, things are different and Ichigo gains his enemy’s sword and most powerful tool.  He is trained by them and his own sword while everyone thinks he’s powerless and ignores him.  When he graduates high school he walks away and has several crossovers (starting with High School DxD).  It’s not for everyone and remember the phrase “Don’t like, Don’t read”.  It’s one I follow. Anywho, the link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11877799/1/Broken-Dreams.

The new chapter is from the fanfiction ‘ Mending the Knots’ by azndrgn (the author who I’m editing for on another story).  It’s a RWBY story where Jaune doesn’t get into Beacon and starts a massage business.  It’s fun and still has your favorite characters in it.  The main reason I didn’t read much else is that I got the app Fate/Grand Order (from the same universe as Fate/Stay Night [though without the rated R stuff]).  I got caught up in it, KHUx and PoGo (I finally moved on to the fourth set of the Celebi quests).  See you tomorrow when I actually post all this.

Monday

So as usual for today, I read the new chapter of Mauling Snarks.  I also spent time on Fate/Grand Order and KHUx again.  I also reread two stories by SeerKing that are finished or not currently being worked on.  They are ‘RWBY – Poison Promise’ and ‘RWBY – Flame of Atonement’.  In the first one, Ruby is posioned and it deals with finding who did it and curing her.  The second one deals with the aftermath.  Poison Promise done at 10 chapter and Flame of Atonement is on hiatus at 4 chapters.  The link to Poison Promise is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11733770/1/RWBY-Poison-Promise and the link to Flame of Atonement is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12147659/1/RWBY-Flame-of-Atonement

I read sakurademonalchemist’s newest story (Again not finishing any of their older ones) ‘Elemental Sky’ in which a female Tsuna learn that she is cousins with the Sand Siblings from Naruto (Temari, Kankaro, and Gaara) and goes to visit them (at a time before the chunin exams).  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13036342/1/Elemental-Sky.

I also started rereading the story ‘Becoming a Man Among Men’ by Dragon6.  It is based on the Ranma 1/2 story which is about Ranma, a high school aged martial artist who accidentally falls into a cursed pool that causes him to become an aquatransexual (which means he turns into a girl when hit by cold water and back to a boy when hit by hot water).  He is then forced to agree to marry one of three daughters of his (abusive, thieving, lying, habitually agreeing to marriage contracts for his son for silly things) father’s friend.  Ranma has to deal with multiple fiancees, men who are after said fiancees and people who blame him for what his father did (I swear, I have not seen a story with so many character with daddy issues and some mommy issues).  Becoming a Man Among Men has Ranma reading his father’s journal after becoming an aquatransexual and learns of all of his father’s misdeeds and his planning to marry him to his friend’s daughter.  He then decides to make his own martial arts school and not do anything his father wants.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6492923/1/Becoming-a-Man-Among-Men.
