One Year Anniversary of the Blog!

Hello readers!  As you could tell from the title of this post, today is the one year anniversary of my blog!  Thanks for everyone’s support over this year!  So much has happened, both with the blog and my life since then.  I’ll make it nice and long post for everyone today!

The HP: Wizard’s Unite app is having an event for the next few days in preparation for the start of Hogwarts (Sept 1st if you didn’t know).  You’ll be able to find a student from each of the houses to save out in the wild and following the event tasks and getting 5 Portkeys you’ll be able to get everything (it’s not hard, I just have the Portkeys left myself).  Also tomorrow is the Shiny Suicune event on PoGo.  For three hours all gyms will have Suicune and there’ll be a Shiny chance!

This week was mostly rereading stories that I’ll talk about later, but I did reread a little of Code Geass: The Prepared Rebellion V2.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, The Unseen Hunt, Compass of thy Soul (Mon & Thurs), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Celestial Worm, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor, Trail by Fire, Short Story Drabbles, New Beginnings & Famiglia Drabbles.

First, I’ll talk about a web novel, that’s now a light novel I’ve been reading called ‘I Said Make My Abilities Average!’  It’s about a genius recent high school graduate who died saving a young girl from being killed by ‘Trunk-kun’ (lol, it seems many isekai (transported other world) stories happen because of a trunk and now it’s a meme).  God allows her to be reincarnated with her memories because the girl she saved will help humanity later in life.  She asks for her abilities to be average because she received too much attention and sadness for being a genius.  Needless to say, God averaged everything from all races, not just humanity… Thus began Mile’s (her new name from a little while in) amusingly ‘average’ life.  It’s fun and will be animated soon!

I started reading Mirrored Dimensions as part of the Myrddin de Celestis Quest.  It’s a rewrite of Burst Realities with Stephanie from Skulduggery Pleasant series as his main girl instead of Ginny.  It’s okay, but pretty much the same as before.

I also read more (recently, not just this week) from White Angel of Auralon.  How Harry Turned Hogwarts Around is a Harry Potter fic where Harry goes back in time to make things better.  He gets a mastery in Potions and becomes the potion professor instead of Snape.  Things are changed, but it’s kinda bland.

Liliko is a one-shot Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  Kushina is taken from her deathbed and dragged into past and deaged.  She’s forced in to the role of Lily Evans and eventually forced to marry James.  This is her story about trying to escape and return home.

Overheard Conversations is Harry Potter fic.  It’s a two-chapter year one fic where Harry overhears McGonagall and Flitwick talking about how he’s not trying hard enough and living up to his parents.  He takes this to heart and decides to change.

The Witches Conspiracy is another Harry Potter fic.  In it four women (Longbottom, McGonagall, Sprout and Figg) decide to help Harry before he goes to Hogwarts.  They invite him to an specialty school after his first report card.  He goes to school with Nevile and eventually others.  It goes through first year and is really interesting.

I also read some interesting Worm fics – Exodus is a Worm and Big Hero 6 crossover by Zaru.  Taylor at the end of Worm is cast into the realm where Hiro and Baymax are saving Calhan’s daughter.  They bring her back and she eventually recovers.  She joins them and things get interesting.  Yep, people start to trigger…

Taylor Hebert, magical girl at your service is a Worm fic with magical girl elements by Aurora Moon.  The ‘light’ Gods decide to help Earth win and infiltrate the Queen Administrator shard and make Taylor a magical girl while at camp.  It’s not far in and Taylor doesn’t really trust her animal guide, but it looks fun!

Jurassic Tinker is a Worm and Jurassic Park crossover by Geno515.  A DNA tinker Taylor ends up on another Earth be for Zion shows up.  She decides to help Hammond create his Jurassic Park.  When people start to trigger, she helps those she can.

Taking Control is a Harry Potter fic by fake a smile.  It’s a complete fic where Sirius helps Harry in his dreams to take control of his life after fifth year.  It’s a Harry/Ginny fic and Ron and Hermione aren’t their greatest selves in this fic.  Has slightly OP Harry, but not overly so.

Free Life is the sequel to Taking Control.  He’s taken control and now he’s free from Dumbledore, but Voldie is still around.  It was interesting but hasn’t been updated since 2011.  Sad since I read it long ago and was hoping for more.

I hadn’t mentioned it before, but I’m a singer.  I haven’t done much with it, but I went to a meeting of a barber shop quartet chorus this week.  It looks to be interesting.  Would y’all be interested in hearing me sing?  Leave a comment with a yay or nay.  If people are interested, I’ll see what I can do.

That’s all for this week.  Thanks again for a great year!  See you next week and as always May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Quest Week (and I’m on Time!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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