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!

After the Quest and a Change in the Posting Schedule

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn’t post on Friday, I actually forgot and didn’t really remember until Sunday (or maybe Saturday, but not until late). Thinking about it, I’ve decided that I’ll just post on Fridays, because then I won’t have to worry about staying up late to post (I have very early mornings, not that it matters this week cause I don’t have work for the rest of it cause there’s not currently much work.) Anyway, I’ve been rereading a few of sakurademonalchemist stories (mostly listening to them), but I’ve also been rereading Ichigo Awakens, Prime Directive: Hero, Gamer of the Sword and finished rereading the Pick Up the Pieces series – Rebuild. The new chapters this past week were: Devil Ninja, Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji, Viridescent, Heroes Assemble!, Raptor of the 20th Ward, Titanfall, Taylor Varga (Thurs & Sun) , Unexpected Restart, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, The Unseen Hunt, God Slaying Blade Works, Tsunami, Black Sky, Mauling Snarks (Omake on Wed, Normal on Fri & Mon), Another Soldier Reporting (Mon & Tues), Souls of the Heart and Service with a Smile.

Since the Quest is over, you’d think that I wouldn’t have much to talk about sakurademonalchemist for, right? Well they have another new story. Its called Hashtag Believing is Seeing. It’s a Rise of the Guardians story where Jack discovers that the Internet can allow him to interact with humans and raise the belief in himself. Thus when the Guardians pull him into their fight with Pitch, he’s not very happy. It’s fun and is two chapters now (started yesterday).

I’ve also been reading some of the compilation fics they have, so I’ll go over them. Kingdom Drabbles is a Kingdom Hearts compilation fic where stories with KH as one of the original stories that might eventually be continued are.   So far it’s has crossovers with Fate/Extra, Once Upon a Time, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Nanoha and KHR. They’re interesting, but the nine chapters only contain up to two chapters of the story.

Bleach Drabbles is much the same only for Bleach. It has crossovers for Hell Girl, Nanoha, Naruto, Harry Potter, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Supernatural, My Little Pony (though it’s not very Bleachy) and KHR. Only one of the stories in here has become a fic of its own, Reaping the Cards. It’s also the only one with three chapters.

The Twin Tides is a fic that just got an update that’s by Solvdrage. It’s a Naruto fic where Naruto has a female twin that looks out for him. It’s only three chapters now, but Solvdrage does good fics (though they usually update slowly). It’s only just on when they graduate, but it looks like it won’t be the same old teams!

sbmcneil posted a new one-shot just an hour ago called Of Splendour in the Grass. It’s a Harry Potter fic focused on Harry/Ginny during his fifth year. In it Harry and Ginny are sent on a ‘detention’ date to Hogsmeade by McGonagall. It’s a cute litte fic.

I forgot to mention it, but a little while back, they also posted another one-shot called A Godfather’s Love. It has Sirius never escaping and being killed when Voldemort invades Azkaban. Harry never knew about him until then and when he finds out it was kept from him, he finds his own help to stop Voldie. A sad fic, but not a bad one.

That’s it for the new stories, but I have a few more things to talk about. Next month the new Code Geass Movie, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection, is going to be in theaters. It’ll be playing in select theaters on May 5, 7 & 8. The 5th will be subbed and the 7th and 8th will be dubbed. You can buy tickets on the Funimation website – https://www.funimationfilms.com/.

I’ve also been watching a YouTuber – SarahKey play through KH3.   Why because I can and it’s interesting watching someone react to everything for the first time. Here is a link to her channel – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6TF2WuXLVgcP5TZVLuLf4A.

Thanks everyone for putting up with me. See you on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

The Start of Death March (and the first post with no Harry Potter in it 0_0)

Tuesday

Today, I read a few more Ashes of the Past. The new chapters today are Ripples and Reality Bites Worm. I also read more stories from ack1308.

The first one of the two is ‘Wyvern,’ which is a Worm fic where Taylor triggers into a wyvern instead. She can change into it when she’s afraid and change back when she’s comfortable/happy. Glory Girl finds her and she decides to join New Wave. Basically she and Lung change power sets. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11426471/1/Wyvern.

The second one is called ‘I’m HALPING’ another Worm fic. It has an unnamed human-shaped Endbringer (who’s eventually named ‘Zachary’), whose purpose is to protect Taylor Hebert. He lets her out of the locker immediately, but is hounded by the PRT and Protectorate. Watch how he protects her while trying to learn how to joke, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12056068/1/I-m-HALPING.

Next, I read a fic called, ‘The Last Master’ by Woona The Cat. Its an Unlimited Blade Works and Fate Grand Order crossover where Shirou takes the place of the main character in the game (because of Zelretch shenanigans of course). He changes things, but still becomes the last master of Chaldea. It’s only 5 chapters and not finished yet, but has been updated recently.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12588900/1/The-Last-Master

Following I read a Star Wars fic called, ‘I Know: Or, How Ahsoka Tano Saved the Skywalkers’ by Sianshanya. It has Ahsoka finding out that Anakin and Padmé are together and before she leaves tells him to confide in Obi-Wan. This saves Anakin from falling to the Dark Side and leads to a different story. See the changes, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11601649/1/I-Know-Or-How-Ahsoka-Tano-Saved-the-Skywalkers.

I also started something else, but as it’s a long story I’ll just talk about it tomorrow. See you then!

Wednesday

There’s nothing from former stories other than new chapters, so here they are: Lucy Heartfilia and the World of the Gods, Organization 13 and a Half, Mauling Snarks (Omake), It’s in the Cards, Master Potter of Kamar-Taj and Heroes Assemble! I finally finished my Let’s Go Pokedex (except for Melmetal, but that will take a while. Only almost 200 candies so far and I need 400) and caught a shiny Weedle on Let’s Go Pikachu.

The only other thing I read today was – Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku (or Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody). While there are light novels (several versions, if I’ve read correctly), a manga and an anime (1 season), I’m reading the translation of the original web novel (which is still ongoing). I’ve read it before up to where it was at then in the 16th part somewhere (The parts get longer with each progressive one. For example the first one has 10 sections and the tenth one has 51 sections, 7 Intermissions and 13 short stories).

It’s about a Japanese 20 something year old programmer who goes to sleep and wakes up in a fantasy world looking 15. He’s level 1 in the middle of no-where and the only special thing he has is a menu, an all-map identify spell and 3 map clear meteor spells (in all but the original web novel, he’s about to be attacked by lizard people). He activates the meteor spell and becomes over level 300. He then goes through this world meeting people and trying to be a sightseer (he fails and gets into many situations to help people) and find out why he ended up here (I think we know the basics when I got to the current chapter back then, but you find out much later). It’s fun, but I’ll be stuck on this for a while cause I’m only just starting the 6th act (I’ll make sure to write about something else too, so don’t worry). The link to the translated web novel is here – https://www.sousetsuka.com/p/blog-page_11.html.

That’s all for today, I’ll post tomorrow!

Thursday

I read more of Death March (I’ll just call it this) today and got to the 13th section of the 9th part. The only new chapter was for Seerking’s Asylum (he’s on break for the holidays on the normal schedule), but there was a rewrite notice for chapter 5 of Konsō and a poll notice for Broken Dreams. I also went to my town’s festival today about a Christmas drink (there were many variations of it, along with singing and food.

As I only read Death March, I’ll talk about the Accel World light novel series by Reki Kawahara. It’s about a fat student named Arita Haruyuki who lives in a future where people can have chips implanted that can have their brains jacked into the computer. His avatar is very nimble, but that’s the only thing he has going for him (he’s bullied, his two childhood friends are going out and he’s the third wheel). When he meets the beautiful Kuroyukihime, he joins the program Brain Burst and enters the Accelerated World where he uses his skills to help her beat everyone else (and escape his current reality). It’s still being published, but there are 23 novels out now along with a manga, a few anime seasons and a movie.

Nothing more for today, see everyone after the weekend on Monday!

 

A Rather Short Post

Tuesday

Today I started to reread Shinobi of the High Seas and got to chapter 13. The stories that had new chapters were – Service with a Smile, It’s in the Cards, and Flames of the Night Sky. I also reread another sakurademonalchemist story.

It’s called ‘Best Served Cold’ and is a Harry Potter story with some Hellsing crossover later on. I mentioned Hellsing ealier, I think, but I didn’t talk about it. Hellsing is about Alucard (Dracula) and his newly turned servant, Seras Victoria (former cop), who serve the Hellsing Organization in taking down his own kind that threaten the world (or just England). It’s really good and there are Nazi Vampires later. The original anime is good, but the remake, Hellsing Ultimate, is better in my opinion. Be warned though, it is a bit of a gory anime.

Anyway, the story has a Harry Potter who became a Ministry Auditor (one of the most feared positions in the Ministry) coming back in time to his preHogwarts self and using his knowledge to fix things, and troll as many people as possible. It’s fun and silly, a great combination (now if only it, like so many others by this author, were finished). The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12149140/1/Best-Served-Cold.

There was a new chapter for a story called ‘Time and Sand’ by Scififan33. It’s a Star Wars story that has a Luke from a slightly different Episode 8 ending up a few years before Episode 1 on Tatooine. He meets and helps Anakin and joins the crew in Episode 1. It’s fun and is on its 8th chapter. Here’s the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12410879/1/Time-and-Sand.

Other than getting Cressila from a raid on PoGo and letting people trade to my Let’s Go game to get Meltan, nothing else happened today. I’ll see everyone tomorrow!

Wednesday

Today, I read more Shinobi of the High Seas, played some Let’s Go and not much else. The new chapters today were from: Burning Ice and Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji. Once again, I’ll talk about a series I haven’t mentioned yet.

The Boxcar Children is a bit older popular children’s series. It’s about four orphaned kids who run away because they believe their grandfather to be cruel (they never meet him). They end up living in an abandoned boxcar from a train. At the end of the first book, they meet their grandfather and end up living with him. All other books have mysteries or puzzles the children need to solve.

There are now 149 books (they’re still being published), 5 Great Adventures and 21 Specials. Only the first 19 books (revised since then) are by the series creator, Gertrude Chandler Warner, before her passing (the first book was published in 1924). The rest have brought them to the current time period (though they’re still young kids, just the time period has changed), though several different authors have written them. It’s a fun series for young kids and adults alike. Read and enjoy!

See people when I post tomorrow!

Thursday

Today, again, I read more Shinobi of the High Seas. I also went to my mother’s retirement party tonight and had a fun conversation with one of her co-workers about anime and introduced them to some new ones along with my blog. I hope they enjoy the new series and eventually read this as well! The new chapters for today are – It’s in the Cards, Organization 13 and a Half and Heroes Assemble!

I reread some more sakurademonalchemist stories. The first was ‘Harmony of the Moonlit Sky’, which is a KHR and Sailor Moon crossover. When Sailor Moon learns that King Endymion destroys the Mafia for peace when she’s in the future, she decides to change things and gets in contact with her former family, Xanxus. She had gotten away by claiming to have amnesia to not get roped into Vongolia’s nonsense after his ‘icing.’ Watch how the Sailor’s lives change because of this, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12368003/1/Harmony-of-a-Moonlit-Sky.

The second one was ‘A Tale of Two Swords,’ which is a multi-crossover with Harry Potter, the Fate Series and the universe of the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I’ve read all the books about that universe (a while back though), including the Simarillion (that was fun, let me tell you). I enjoyed the series and liked the movies, though the new Hobbit movies were too drawn out in my opinion.

The story has a female Harry drawing Caliburn instead of the Sword of Gryffindor in the Chamber of Secrets and summons Mordred to help. She ends up in the Clocktower with a pranking troll (read Zelretch) that dumps them in the Hobbit. It’s fun for only 8 chapters and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13013839/1/A-Tale-of-Two-Swords.

I then read a bunch of My Hero Academia fanfics, starting with ‘A Smile on Your Face and a Song in Your Heart’ by Kreadstornham. It has a Izuku who has the quirk to hear people’s souls through music. Nobody believes him for a while or thinks it’s stupid so he has much more issues than in the original. He works to overcome this though, it can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13118908/1/A-Smile-on-Your-Face-and-a-Song-in-Your-Heart.

The next one, which is by the same author, is called ‘Redemption.’ It has a universe where Izuku never met All Might and thus remained Quirkless. Grown up, he still tries to help whenever he can, which is how he meets Uravity. Things happen from there. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12991637/1/Redemption.

I then read ‘My Gamer Academia’ by All Hail Science, which is a Gamer and Academia crossover. Deku has always had the Gamer quirk, but no-one believes him. He still gets One for All, but has better control of it because of the Gamer. There are only 6 chapters currently, but it’s fun! It’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12791382/1/My-Gamer-Academia.

Lastly, I read ‘Deku, The Telekinetic Hero’ by sremiehzla. Deku has a telekinetic quirk that he uses to become a hero. He and Ochako quirks work well together, so they work as a team (it just finished the School festival arc). The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12969971/1/Deku-The-Telekinetic-Hero.

That’s all for this post, my friends! See everyone on Monday!

I’m Heading Out to Get Let’s Go!

Tuesday

Today, I read so more of I Am Harry Potter and Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me, but didn’t finish either one of them and read books fifteen through the start of eighteen for The Irregular at Magic High School. There were new chapters for; Service with a Smile, Another Fine Mess, and Reading Chronicles Book 1: To the Victor, The Spoils. I got Shedinja on PoGo from the Research Breakthrough this morning, but now I wish that I had waited until this afternoon because of the stupid new Sinnoh Stone. It can only be gotten from the Research Breakthrough, but it didn’t become active until this afternoon (stupid, should happen at night, but I guess it is night somewhere then).

Anyway, I read some more new sakurademonalchemist fics (new as in I haven’t read them, they have like, let me check, 246 stories). The first one was ‘Spirit of the Jewel’ and it’s a InuYasha and Natsume Yūjin-Chō (which will now be Natsume because it’s stupid to get those vowels with symbols every time. It translates out to Natsume’s Book of Friends) crossover. Not sure it I’ve ever said what Natsume is before (really need to make that list I mentioned soon), but it’s about a boy named Takashi Natsume who can see spirits. He has since he was young (He’s a teenager now) and his family switches him between themselves and thinks he’s a liar and troublemaker because of his ability. He inherits a notebook from his grandmother that she bound spirits to control them. He tries to find them and give them back their names (which are in the book).

Spirit of the Jewel has Takashi and Nyanko (a spirit who hangs out with him who wants the book, eventually) going to the Higurashi Shrine to live before the start of InuYasha. He, Nyanko and a fox spirit end up going to the past with Kagome and getting involved with her adventures. It only has four chapters (so far, but hasn’t been updated since Sept. 2016). If you want to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12152411/1/Spirit-of-the-Jewel.

The second is called ‘Arrow of Truth’ and it is a Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA) and Fate/stay Night crossover. Shirou ends up declining Alaya and not becoming a Counter Guardian. He then meets Truth (from FMA) who says he is a fragment of Edwards from when he went through the Gate of Truth (Think the author was referring to original anime series). Truth then transports him (in Edward’s body) to before the Grail War and he changes things. Fine out what, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12095365/1/Arrow-of-Truth.

The last one (from this author) is ‘Beware of Sith Trolls.’ It’s a three-part story (with only two parts out since Aug. 2016) that’s a Harry Potter and Star Wars crossover (with mentions and meeting Black Wing from Fate’s Gamble by Lupine Horror). It has Vader saving a young Harry Potter (who deaged himself and his a troll) and having him become his apprentice. Chaos ensues, which can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12068640/1/Beware-of-Sith-Trolls.

I discovered that Fruits Basket is finally getting a remade anime with the whole story (YAY!). While doing that I learned of a short (unfinished) sequel about another young girl and the children of the Fruits Basket characters called “Fruits Basket Another.” I read the manga and enjoyed it, really looking forward to the finish and the new anime!

I reread a fic by kb0 called ‘A Friend Indeed.’ It’s a six-chapter story about what would have happened if Ginny would have tried harder to be Harry’s friend after his name comes out the Goblet of Fire. Things change, but most of it’s for the better, right? Find out here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3822327/1/A-Friend-Indeed.

I also got a new chapter for a story called ‘The Lady of the Flies’ by InsanityIncarnate90. It’s a Worm and Highschool DxD crossover that has Rias reincarnating Taylor after the end of Worm as her Queen. Watch how this changes the DxD universe completely! Here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12586479/1/The-Lady-of-the-Flies. (Might have already talked about this one, realllly need to make that list.)

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

Wednesday

I finished both My Name is Harry Potter and Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, An Ashikabi’s Life for Me today. I also got caught up on The Gamer (my app didn’t get the new chapters until today <_>). There were also new chapters for Burning Ice, Harry Potter and the Stargate, Flames of the Night Sky, It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble! and an omake for Mauling Snarks. A Ultra Friend on PoGo gave me an Ex Raid invite today and I was finally able to catch Deoxys (yay!). I also got some Lucky Pokémon from trades today!

I started rereading a story by an author I haven’t mentioned yet, Phantom1s. It’s called ‘Harry Potter: Archangel’ and it has Harry’s accidental magic transporting him to the Flamels at a young age (to escape from the Dursleys). He grows up with them and ends up meeting Tony Stark and creating a magic Ironman suit called Archangel. He saves a going into fifth year Ginny (remember he’s not been at Hogwarts, to study at least) and things happen from there. I like this fic and the author, but feel he kind of jumps around and has pacing problems. The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6989193/1/Harry-Potter-Archangel.

There was a new chapter for the fic, ‘Organization 13 and a Half’ by Glennt123. It a Kingdom Hearts story that starts before 365/2 Days. It has a sentient Dusk that is the main character who becomes a part of Organization 13. Hasn’t reached 365/2 Days yet, but it is still semi-frequently updating. The story can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12971650/1/Organization-13-and-a-Half.

Lasty, I started rereading another of kb0’s stories, ‘Harry Potter: The Avenger.’ It has Harry not wanting to stay in his world any longer and goes through the Veil (with a trunk full of things) to try and find Sirius. He ends up in New York right before it’s attacked by aliens in the first Avengers movie. He joins the defense and becomes an Avenger. It’s finished (but I still need to read a few more chapters of the seven) and can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10477045/1/Harry-Potter-The-Avenger.

A rerun of last year’s Christmas event on Fate/GO started today. Looking forward to playing through it!

Nothing more today, can’t wait until the Midnight night release of the Let’s Go games tomorrow!

Thursday

I finished Harry Potter: The Avenger and read more Broken Dreams (by ThunderReborn if you’ve forgotten). The only new chapter was from Another Fine Mess. That and playing PoGo, Fate/GO and KHUx are really the only things I did today. Wow, that’s kinda sad …

Anyway, I’m writing this before I head over and get my new Let’s Go games, but I have enough time to talk about another series. This time I’ll talk about “Skip Beat” by Yoshiki Nakamura. The main character, Kyoko Mogami, went to Tokyo with her love Sho to help him while he became an Idol. But when he became famous he got rid of her and she vowed horrible revenge. She decided to get revenge on him by becoming a bigger star than him. The only problem, she left behind love and can’t muster any up to catch people’s eyes.

When she proves to have talent, the director of a company decides to make a “Love-Me” section to help her (and others eventually) find what they’re missing. Watch her work through her trials to get one over on Sho (and who’s this Ren Tsuruga?). I really enjoy this series and need to catch up on it, I’m a bit behind.

I’ll post this now before I head out. See everyone on Monday and hope people who are also getting Let’s Go enjoy it as much as I will!

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!

 

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!
