Finishing the After-quest and a Black Sky Week (With a New Side Story)

Hello readers! It’s once again time for a post! You read correctly I finished the last of the compilation fics and there are no more stories or chapters from sakurademonalchemist that I haven’t read! I mostly read more Desperately Seeking Ranma and Ashes of the Past (I’m finally getting back to rereading it to catch up). The new chapters this week were: Relic of the Future, Another Solider Reporting (Sat, Mon, Tues x2, Wed x2, Thurs), The Unseen Hunt, Black Sky (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs & Fri), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Corpse Cleaner (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri), Dawn of Magic (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri), Campione of the Raging Tides, History Strongest Disciple Again?, Mending the Knots, Heroes Assemble!, Taylor Varga, Marvel’s Maelstrom, Titanfall, Gorgon and Thanatos and Kingdom Drabbles.

I’ll finish the after-quest stories first, Short Story Drabbles is the Harry Potter compilation fic. It has 227 chapters. The new stories it’s crossovered with are Hollows (a manga), Magico (a novel series), Dragon Kishidan (a manga/Anime), Little Pet Shop of Horrors (an anime and manga) and Numb3rs (an American TV series about a mathematician who helps his FBI brother).

Famgilia Drabbles is the KHR compilation fic. The new stories it’s crossovered with are Beauty and Beast (please watch a version of this if you haven’t already), Mouse (an older manga about a phantom thief), Stitch (a Movie and series about a alien experiment that lands on Earth) and Katana (a manga about a forger who can see the true form of the swords).

Stories of Fate is the Fate/Stay Night compilation fic (and the last one!). There are no new stories in the 39 chapters (because most of them have already been made into full stories). The crossovers from the non-full story chapters are: Fullmetal Alchemist, Pokémon, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Rising of the Shield Hero and Harry Potter.

When Empires Collide by Nemesis13 is a Star Wars and Code Geass crossover. Before the Zero Requiem, the Empire invades the Earth. The world unites to fight them and become a thorn in the Empire’s side. Nunnally ends up on Tatooine and befriends Luke. It’s a fun story, but not long and updated irregularly (was just updated).

Yesterday’s Tomorrow by Umei no Mai is a KHR (maybe Harry Potter later) fic that’s a companion fic to Black Sky. In Black Sky, Tsuna and friends were sent to the future, but didn’t go back soon after like they were supposed to. Tsuna can tell that this isn’t really the future as he knows he isn’t the Tenth Boss. Watch as he tries to find a way home while annoyed at his ‘future self’.

That’s it for this week, but at least I won’t mention sakurademonalchemist unless they post a new fic. Oh also, for those who didn’t know, KH3 now has a Critial Mode DLC. If you play it, prepare to die (that’s all I know as I haven’t played that one yet). Next week I’ll have seen Avengers: Endgame so be prepared for my thought on it! See you then and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

No Votes on My Poll

So, my very few readers, it is once again time for me to write my babble that you decide to read. After 2 weeks of the poll existing and no one voting, I have decided to follow what my friend said and just continue with the new style of posts. I have another idea that I would make another poll about, if I actually thought anyone would vote on it. At some point over the next few weeks, I’ll make a page that will have the links to the fanfictions I’ve posted about. I plan to update them the week after I mention them from now on. So, intrepid readers, look forward to that.

I’ve mostly continued to reread Harry Potter and the Daft Morons (which will hopefully be finished soon), but I’ve also finished watching Skyward Wing play through Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and watched the Back Cover video from the 2.8 game collection. All that’s left to prepare myself for Kingdom Hearts 3 on the 29th is to what Kingdom Hearts 0.2. I also watched the translated missions 851-855 from the Japanese version of KHUx. In it, Marluxia’s somebody, Lauriam’s looking for his sister (Strelitza) through her teammate Elrena, who is Larxene’s somebody. We still don’t know who the somebodies for Luxord or Demyz are. Also the opening theme for KH3 is now available on iTunes. Search for Face My Fears by Hikaru Utada.

The new chapters for the week are: Reality Bites Worm, Service with a Smile, Worm – Justice for All, Breaking the Guilded Cage (Tues, Thur, Fri), Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Omake), Tsunami, Taylor Varga Omake (Wed, Fri), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub, Ashes to Flames, Devil Ninja and Mauling Snarks. I also started on a few new interesting stories.

The first of these is ‘Drifting’ by AlphaDelta1001. It’s a Naruto fic that has Naruto being a badass and learning how to fight from animals. It’s a harem fic that has at least 7 girls. It has 52 chapters out, but I’m only on chapter 28 now. It’s interesting because it’s a Chunin Exam in another country (instead of in Konoha like it always is). It even has all of the Kages there. Looking forward to more interesting plot in the near future. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8833703/1/Drifting.

Next is a fic that came from a short by Seerking that another took over called, ‘The Rising of the Shield Heroine,’ by Tale Swapper. It’s a Worm and Rising of a Shield Hero crossover. It has Taylor getting the shield from the second story as her power. Queen Administrator gets her own body and is in charge of the ‘Halp’ system. It’s not that long so far, but I’m looking forward to more by this author. Here is the link – https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/the-rising-of-the-shield-heroine.51666/.

Now it’s time for (you guessed it) more new sakurademonalchemist fics I’ve read. I’ll start off with the newest one (meaning it came out this month), ‘Angels and Demons.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Final Fantasy 7 crossover, where female Harry is a Sephiroth look-a-like who was summoned via the Lifestream by Death Eaters. She gets back to her original home after fifth year and becomes a Monster Hunter and eventually runs into the SOLIDERS. Watch what happens, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13179246/1/Angels-and-Demons.

Returning to their unupdated fics from 2014, the first one is ‘Hunter’ and it’s sequel ‘Walker.’ It’s a Supernatural and Harry Potter crossover that has Vernon and Dudley getting killed by a Wendigo when Harry was young. This leads him to become a ‘research monkey’ for the Hunters. He gets along with Loki and eventually leaves Hogwarts to help hunters. In the sequel, he gets stuck in the past helping fix things, just 135 before he gets back home. The first one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9931180/1/Hunter and the second one is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10120858/1/Walker.

Following that is ‘Angel’s Horn,’ which is a Supernatural and Magical Nanoha crossover. It has Hayate being Dean’s daughter and see goes looking for him after her two minders leave her alone. The brother’s find a demon in the ‘Book of Darkness’ and excise it, leading to the Guardians to be released. And how is connected to Loki? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10648699/1/Angel-s-Horn.

That’s it because I was busy working and studying so I’ll see everyone on Monday! Have fun and look forward to those new pages! And may your heart be your guiding key!

A Different Way of Writing

Hello everyone, I’m going to try something different for today’s post. Instead of going day by day, I’m going to just do the whole week (post) together and see how it looks. If people like this style better (after a trial week following this one), I will adopt this one instead of the old style (and vis versa). The chapters that updated this week were: Black Sky (Fri, Sat), Ashes to Flame, Memories of Iron, Devil Arts Online, Mauling Snarks (Fri, Mon, Tues [Omake]), Tsunami (Fri, Tues), History Strongest Disciple Again? (the story I beta), By Your Side is Where I Belong, Heroes Assemble (Sat, Wed), Reality Bites Worm, Jaune Ryu-Long, The Dragon Contractor, Alea lacta Est, The Reclamation of Black Magic, Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope, God Slaying Blade Works, A Sith’s Second Chance, and Devil Ninja.

Next, I’ll go through the fanfiction I read this week, followed by what I watched. I reread Reality Bites Worm, started rereading The XXXX You Say and started rereading Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell. The first new story I reread was from sakurademonalchemist and it was called, ‘Rise of the Black Dragon.’ This is another Harry Potter and KHR crossover with Harry being Xansus this time. He is left in the trash in Italy when he was young and found by Xansus’ mom after the ‘original’ Xansus was killed by one of her patrons. Events follow, but he knows that the Ninth is not is dad and he ends up at Hogwarts. It’s interesting and has 13 chapters currently. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12787598/1/Rise-of-the-Black-Dragon.

The second story I reread by them is ‘Between Lies and Truth,’ which is a KHR and Harry Potter story, again. It has Colonello being a Harry Potter who ran away from England to get away from everything and joined Comsubin (Italian Navy). Lal Mitch discovers that there is much more to her new student than a happy go lucky sniper. There are 10 chapters and it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12903809/1/Between-Lies-and-Truth.

The next from them that I reread is called ‘If Only You Knew’ and is the previous story switched. It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover where Lal Mitch is a female Harry and Colonello helps her deal with the PTSD that no-one else could help her with. It’s eleven chapters and is located here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12510267/1/If-You-Only-Knew.

The last from sakurademonalchemist is called ‘Sound of Flames’ and is a pure KHR fic (with some Cardcaptor stuff thrown in). It has a female Tsuna, losing her sight after her flames are sealed. This leads to Hibari finding her sooner and helping her out. Watch how she learns to get around her handicap and still become a great potential boss. The link can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12443581/1/Sound-of-Flames.

Next I read a completely new story (for me) by them called, ‘Shield Wizard.’ It’s a Harry Potter and Rising of the Shield Hero crossover. Rising of the Shield Hero is a story about a boy named ‘Naofumi Iwatani’ who is one of four summoned to be a hero in a new world. However, as he only has a shield, he is not very powerful. After he is betrayed by those who should have been his friends, he becomes cynical and only really trusts those he has control over (like slaves). It was originally a web comic, but is now a light novel and will have an anime soon after the new year.

In the fic, Harry is summon instead of Naofumi and skips being betrayed because he expects it after being a ‘hero’ before. He still befriends some from the original story, but I haven’t read much of the original, so I can’t really say how well it follows it. Still it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11372046/1/Shield-Wizard.

Next I read a story by Quatermass called ‘Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub,’ which is a Harry Potter and Fate/Stay Night crossover. It has the Dursley’s dying in the Fuyuki Fire and Taiga taking Harry in. When Harry goes to Hogwarts for the TriWizard Tournament, he finds Mordred (female) healed and kept under stasis until he found her. He takes her with him back to Japan and she (as a powerful human not a Heroic Spirit) is still around for the Fifth Grail War. Watch as she tries to get something from her ‘Father’ that she hasn’t had before, acceptance, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13145171/1/Knight-of-Betrayal-and-Taiga-Cub.

I then read some new stories from the author of ‘The XXXX You Say,’ Selector, starting with ‘Trekking.’ It’s a Worm fic has Taylor having a different triggering event, which leaves her paraplegic and only able to move her eyes. Her powers eventually fix that, and she can control animals, but her main skill is to be able to make any tech from the Star Trek universe. It currently has 16 chapters and is interesting. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13071083/1/Trekking.

Next was ‘Gun Bunny’ which has Taylor triggering with an ability similar to Miss Miltia’s but with the power to make the gun/war machine real after a certain time, if it’s left out. She takes over the Merchants with a healed Squealer and make it more a protector (gang) instead of a drug dealing one. Watch as she, like any good Taylor, escalates, until she gets the right result. This fic’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13046274/1/Gun-Bunny.

Next is a Harry Potter fic with a slight Underworld crossover by the same author called, ‘Harry Potter and the Witches Secret.’

R Rated Content

This fic has Harry ‘Bonding’ tons of witches because he was not taught to control his power and thus attracts witches that are magically compatible. This is not just a Sex fic, but it has a lot of it.

R Rated Content

Harry reforms Britain and has many people under his command. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12575091/1/Witches-Secret.

The ‘sequel’ is called ‘Harry Potter and the Dark Lady,’ and I am in the middle of reading it. It is included in the previous story right after the other story ends. It has Harry dealing with a Dark Lady who wants him, but won’t play nice. However, the author also has a Yahoo group with all their fics, which can be found here – https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Rotaryfile/files.

While I was with my relatives, we watched many things (including football, which I don’t normally do, except for the Superbowl). One thing that always seemed to be on was a buying or building house shows. One of these was “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV. It has host David Bromstad helping lottery winners find their dream home. It’s interesting, but I thought that other than if I really needed a new place, I wouldn’t blow all that money I just won finding the ‘perfect’ house. (Not that I play the lottery or gamble, but that’s a different story). It’s okay to watch, but not too great to do in real life.

Next was “Maine Cabin Masters”, which has a builder, Chase Morrill, working with family and friends to help save abandoned cabins and get them ready for their new owners. This one was okay, but I felt that some of the drama was contrived a little bit to make it more interesting. I would suggest it, but only after watching it a little bit more.

There was also “Building Off the Grid” where they document people building in the middle of no-where. The one I watched was where they were building a survival cabin on a glacier in Alaska. It was interesting, but it looked very cold and I’m not sure I could have done it.

Moving On, we also watched a few episodes of the series “Bones” that ended recently. Even though I’m not really interested in the gory things, this show was really interesting. I’ve watched all the seasons except for the last few ones, and that will happen soon. The character ‘Bones’ and her partner, Booth, are some of my favorite TV personalities.

To finish up (I’ll talk about other things I watched next time) I also saw Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee in theaters and will talk about them. First off, Mary Poppins Returns is a great sequel to the original. It has the original Banks children grown up and Michael has children of his own. When an issue comes up, Mary Poppins shows up to help her older charges and her newer ones. I really love this movie and love that they include little parts in the music where you can hear parts of the original movie’s songs in it.

Spoilers

From the very beginning, Mary Poppins knows what needs to happen, but if everything was resolved quickly, none of her charges would have learned anything. So, she sets everything up so that everyone can have a learning experience. Even if the cliché of having everything fixed at the last minute exists in it.

Spoilers

Bumblebee is also a really good movie. I enjoyed hearing his original voice and learning how he got his name. It showed the American’s first contact with the Autobots and Decepticons. I liked the main female lead, Charlie, but I felt that she very much overshadowed all but John Cena’s character Agent Burns, for the humans at least. Good movie, just needs a stronger ‘human’ cast.

Spoilers

The amount of ‘The Breakfast Club’ references in the movie was amusing. There was even a Rick Roll in there. I don’t know what happens between this movie and the first Transformers movie, but I found interesting parallels between Charlie finding Bumblebee in a junkyard and Sam finding him in a used car lot. Maybe in the next of, however many more movies there’ll be, we’ll find out.

Spoilers

Thanks for reading and like or comment on this post if you prefer this format or not. See everyone on New Years Eve for the last post of the year!
