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!

I’m Back (and I Completed the First Part of the Current Quest)

Hello, my readers, I am back!  Happy Late 4th of July!  So I went to Nashville for last weekend and that’s why I wasn’t able to post last week.  I had an early flight Friday and went to sleep early.  Over the past two weeks I got all the collectables in the KHII worlds and was officially hired by my work.  My first day is soon!  I got Carnivine and Tropius in PoGo and hope to get Pachirisu soon!  I reread Angry Harry and the Seven, Harry Potter and the Old Friend, Titanfall, Reality Bites Worm, Archer and Ginny’s Plan.  The new chapters these two weeks are: Relic of the Future (1st and 2nd Sat), An Essence of Sliver and Steel (1st & 2nd  Sat), Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Celestial Worm (1st Sat, 1st Thurs), The Unseen Hunt (1st and 2nd Sat), Devil Ninja, Mending the Knots, Worm: More Than Meets The Eye (2 chaps), Honestly Harry – The Year of the Spares, Mauling Snarks (1st & 2nd Mon, 1st & 2nd Fri), Are You Afraid of the Dark?, History’s Strongest Disciple Again?, Service with a Smile (1st & 2nd Tues), Archer, Ripples, Demon Skylark, Short Story Drabbles, Heroes Assemble!, Famiglia Drabbles, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard? (1st & 2nd Wed), Souls of the Heart, RWBY: Destiny of Remnant, Ginny’s Plan (1st & 2nd Fri), How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk, Headstart, Gun Bunny, Tsunami, Seerking’s Asylum, Playing Our Roles, Black Sky (2nd Mon – 2nd Fri), Broken Dreams, Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold, Unexpected Restart, FateKaleid Prisma Taylor, Titanfall (1st Thurs & 2nd Wed), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub & Harry Potter and the Visored (a lot I know).

*Spoiler Warning*

I finally went to go see Toy Story 4 yesterday and it was as good as I imagined.  Bo Peep showed up and we learned why she left the movies originally.  The movie also brought up the question of what really counts as a toy with Forky who was made from trash and wanted to go back into it.  It also covered how toys feel about just being left on a shelf forever.  Buzz’s ‘inner voice’ was funny.

There wasn’t really a ‘bad guy’ in the movie.  Even the toy who was in the role had her reasons and got an owner.  Woody made the decision to stay with Andy instead of going with Bo Peep, but since Bonnie didn’t need him he made the opposite decision.  It’s a great movie and I enjoyed the plush’s imaginary sequences.

*End Spoiler Warning*

Signed, Anonymous by Enchanted Pink Jade is a Saint Tail fic I reread last week.  It has Meimi and Asuka Jr. exchanging a dairy anonymously talking about their problems and how to solve them.  It’s a cute little ten chapter fic that was written many years ago.

Senju Naruto is a new fic by TheBeardedOne that was started last Monday and finished yesterday.  It has Danzo trying to steal Naruto soon after the Kyubi attack and Kakashi stopping it.  He takes Naruto away and they both end up under Tsunade’s protection as her ‘sons.’  It’s a fun fic and there might be a sequel!

For The Honor of the Regiment is by mp3.1415player.  It’s a Worm and BOLO series (haven’t read it, but it has AI tanks) crossover with one of the BOLO tanks eventually taking over Taylor’s Shard.  It activates early and she is trained from an early age.  It switches back and forth between the beginning and current time.  Fun, but may be confusing to some people.

Trial by Fire is the latest by sakurademonalchemist.  It was in a compilation fic and is a Harry Potter and One Piece fic.  It has ‘Harry becomes Ace’ as the difference from Ace is Harry so we’ll see how the continuation goes.

I’ll finish the first part of the Myrddin de Celestis quest since there’s only 24 chapters left.  Chapter 71 is The Truths of Avalon.  It was a one-shot Buffy and Harry Potter crossover.  There’s no Buffy in it, but Harry goes slightly insane, turns into a girl (or was always one and it was hidden, don’t know) and escapes the Dursleys.

Chapter 72 is Thrice Bound.  It was a five-chapter Harry Potter story I’d read before.  Harry is a triplet of the two boys-who-lived and is often forgotten.  He meets Ginny and Luna on his tenth birthday and becomes soul-bound to them.

Chapter 73 is Twisting Worlds.  It was a four-chapter Final Fantasy XIII and Harry Potter crossover.  Lighting and Vanille are separated from the others and find Serah.  They eventually end up on earth and meet Harry and his twin sister who are new l’Cie.  Don’t know anything about Final Fantasy so can’t say much about this.

Chapter 74 is Two Worlds.  It was one-shot Twilight and Hannah Montana crossover (or would be).  In it Renesmee doesn’t like Jacob and rejects him.  Alice helps her move to Malibu, but it doesn’t happen in the chapter.

Chapter 75 is Lost Art.  It was a one-shot Naruto fic.  Naruto leaves Jiraya early on their training trip to learn a lost art from a book.  Jiraya doesn’t left Konoha know until he gets back at the end of three years.  They were about to go looking for Naruto.

Chapter 76 is We Will Be Heroes.  It was a one-shot Twilight fic.  The husbands of the younger gen vampires are cheating and the girls decide to become superheroes. … yeah, it’s kinda weird.

Chapter 77 is Ionic Storm.  It’s longest story here at 44 chapters.  It has so many crossovers (especially in the last chapters) that I’ll only mention Harry Potter, inFamous and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  It’s like previously mentioned stories, Fem. Harry gets inFamous powers and is brought late to Hogwarts.  Is M for a reason!

Chapter 78 is Midnight Savior.  It was a two-chapter Twilight fic.  Bella is the reborn ‘savior’ and awakens her powers before she goes to Forks.  She’ll end up with Alice, but they haven’t gotten together yet.

Chapter 79 is Upgrade Override.  It was a two-chapter Twilight and Xenosaga crossover.  Taylor goes on a field trip after Edward lives and gets infused with nanobots.  She saves Jane and they travel together.

Chapter 80 is Demonic Bloodlines.  It was two-chapter Naruto fic.  Naruto meets the Kyubi when he’s thrown off the cliff and instead of summoning a toad, Fem. Kyubi helps him.  He meets Hinata and goes to train with Guy.

Chapter 81 is Neketo Uzumaki.  It was a seven-chapter Naruto fic.  Fem. Naruto gets the Sharingan and is much better.  Yeah, not very interesting.

Chapter 82 is Hidden Element Kunoichi.  It was a one-shot Naruto fic.  Fem. Naruto pretends to be fat and only reveals she’s a kunoichi.  Fem. Sasuke (those she’s his twin) and Hinata are her teammates and they’ll end up together.

Chapter 83 is Unoblivious.  It was a 13-chapter Harry Potter fic.  Mostly one-shot stories about Harry asking questions instead of just plowing forward.

Chapter 84 is Possible Abominations.  It was a one-shot Kim Possible fic.  Ron is murdered while she’s on a mission and she promises to avenge him.

Chapter 85 is Evolution of Mana.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter and X-Men crossover.  Harry becomes a mutant while saving a girl from kidnaping and Professor X senses him.

Chapter 86 is History Reborn.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter fic.  It’s similar to another where Harry and Ginny plan to go back to the past but is mostly only his recollections of the past.

Chapter 87 is In the Era of the Fabled.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  Naruto and Harry are born with each other’s expected powers and one odd eye.  They’re connected, but Naruto hasn’t even been mentioned in the story yet.  Just Harry meeting Ginny.

Chapter 88 is Memory of the Arts.  It was a two-chapter Naruto fic.  Essentially a Missing Hokage fic, but with Naruto losing his memory and not caring about others.

Chapter 89 is Burst Reality.  It was a 19-chapter Harry Potter, Final Fantasy VII, Buffy and Code Geass crossover.  Harry and Ginny are time and space Gods to be.  Harry knows he is and dimension travels to grow up in a better environment.  He de-ages and comes back to go to Hogwarts.  It was once much longer, and Ginny knew she was one.  It also has a rewrite I’ll cover later.

Chapter 90 is Mana Uncovered.  It was a one-shot Harry Potter fic.  It has a mad-scientist Harry who makes a clone of his beloved twin sisters.

Chapter 91 is The League of Justice.  It was a one-shot Naruto and DC crossover.  It’s a slight extension of a Mythical Night that explains about Batgirl and Artemis.

Chapter 92 is Player.  It was a four-chapter Harry Potter fic (eventual DC crossover).  It has Sirius faking his death and Harry goes to Gringotts to do things.  The Order is useless, and Harry wins some money.

Chapter 93 is White Flames.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter fic.  In it Harry gets a mysterious power and bulks up.  Possibly has seer powers, maybe.

Chapter 94 is Infamous City.  It was a two-chapter Naruto fic.  The world has much better technology, but they still need ninjas.  Naruto saves Hinata and ends up betrothed to both her and her sister.  It’s the last one of Mystical Codex, but I’ll cover the other stories next!

That’s everything for this week.  I’ll see the new Spiderman this weekend and talk about it next week.  See you then and May You Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

Sorry! Longer Work Week (with the Quest!)

Sorry I’m late!  I ended up working Friday and went to sleep early and yesterday I was helping my mother out with an event along with Pogo Community day so I never got around to it… Anyway, been listening to more Taylor Varga and From Fake Dreams.  The new chapters this week are: Black Sky, Relic of the Future (1st Sat, 2nd Sat), The Unseen Hunt (Mon, 2nd Sun), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Viridescent, Kaien’s Fate, Aizen’s Experiment and Ichigo’s Sister, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?, Demon Skylark (Wed & Thurs), Ginny’s Plan, Famiglia Drabbles, Short Story Drabbles, Seerking’s Asylum, Devil Ninja, Titanfall, Deku: The Golden Sayian Hero of Hope & Game On! 3 1 (2 Chaps).

The first story this week was The Bug-Type Queen by LordCirce.  It’s a Pokémon and Worm crossover when Taylor is blasted into the Pokémon world by Bakuda.  There she finds she can communicate with bug-type Pokémon.  It covers her journey to find her way back while protecting her hive.  There are flashes of when she gets back, but there are only a few.  It hasn’t been updated since 2016, but hopefully it will be eventually!

Next is A Skittering Heart by stewart92.  It’s a Worm and Kingdom Hearts crossover where Taylor becomes a Keyblade wielder.  She teams up with Parian.  It also contains Final Fantasy elements.  It hasn’t been updated in a year, but it has 43 chapters.

Next was Newtype Bet by Arthur Hansen.  It’s a Gundam UC and Worm crossover where Taylor triggers as a Newtype.  She builds Gundams to fight the Endbringers, but it doesn’t get that far.  Only 5 chapters and it hasn’t been updated in a year, but it’s interesting.

With Time is a Danny Phantom fic by PhantomPhoenixGirl.  It’s a characters’ watch the show fic.  It doesn’t follow the show directly, but picks the episodes to view.  It’s fun, but only 4 chapters.

The next chapters for the Myrddin de Celestis quest start with chapter 42 – Lightning Slayer.  It’s a Harry Potter, inFAMOUS (the game) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer crossover that was three-chapters.  It has Fem. Harry being dropped off in LA as a kid and getting the electrical powers from the inFAMOUS game series.  She becomes a protector and when she comes of age, she decides to head to Sunnydale and see the Hellsmouth and the Slayer.  Rated M for obvious reasons.

Chapter 43 was Lightning Strikes and was most likely the story that prompted the last story cause it was in 2012 and this one was in 2011.  Its ten-chapters and has Fem. Harry with the same powers, but in London.  She meets her ‘family’ fighting Death Eaters and learns she has a twin sister.  She decides to put up with her family that hates her (because of Dumbles) and enter the magical world during ‘third’ year.  It has a Negima crossover, but it’s inconsistent because Eva and Chachamaru are mentioned as being friends before they even enter the story and introduce themselves… so yeah.

Chapter 44 was Rise of the Black Phoenix.  It was an eleven-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry is left for dead in a forest so the Dursley’s can stop the letters.  He finds his way to where he meets Ginny.  Because of his injuries he doesn’t go to school that year and stays with Ginny.  They decide to make their own organization to correct the world.  It’s okay, but the author says his 12th birthday is his 11th before ‘2nd’ year.

Chapter 45 was Order of Souls (the sort of remake of the last story).  It was two chapters and is sort of the same, but he spends less time outside and they focus on the shopping trip for him.

Chapter 46 was End of Worlds.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story that was really weird.  Before Harry goes to Hogwarts, he and many others are killed in the ‘Kaleido Event.’  The Powers That Be bring him back… Yeah, I really don’t get this one very much.

Chapter 47 was Divine Sight.  It was a ten-chapter Naruto and Harry Potter crossover.  In it, Harry doesn’t have magic, but chakra.  He’s looked down upon but does his best anyway.  Eventually (like on the last ‘chapter’) Naruto and Hinata are transported to Hogwarts and don’t know how to get back.  It’s okay, but not the greatest in the world.

Chapter 48 is Hyper Saiyans.  It was a ten-chapter DBZ story where Chichi dies in childbirth.  Gohan takes care of Goten by himself and eventually goes to high school to be able to graduate.  He meets Videl and things happen almost the same up to where she finds out, which is where it ends. Chapter 49 is Dragon Ball Acceleration.  It’s the same (only one chapter), but has him meeting Videl in a tournament and getting a date.  They meet again in high school.

Chapter 50 was Blood War.  It was actually their first story and it shows.  It’s a seven-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry and Ginny are connected to the ‘Source’ and allows them to communicate with former hosts of the ‘Source’ (mostly Gods and such).  They’ll become the mysterious Lord and Lady Phoenix and fight Voldemort.

That’s it and sorry again.  I’m also working on a database of the Pokémon I have, so that’s interesting.  See you all on Friday!  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key! (BTW the trailer for the KH III DLC is out!)

Anime Week (and the New Quest Continues)

Hey peoples!  It’s once again time for Matt’s ramblings!  It’s been a pretty boring week, but at least my hours are back up again.  Yay!  I’ve mostly been rereading (more like listening) to Death March web novel.  The new chapters this week are: Relic of the Future, Less Than Zero, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Mauling Snarks (Sat, Mon & Fri), The Unseen Hunt, The Rising of the Shield Heroine, Celestial Worm, Seerking’s Asylum, Ginny’s Plan, Darth Vader: Hero of Naboo, Naruto: The Game of Life, Titanfall and Taylor Varga (Omake).

I participated in the Torchic Community Day for PoGo even though I wasn’t feeling the greatest, but I still got seven shinies!  It’s raid week and tomorrow there’ll be three hours where Lapras will be available as a raid boss continually and it has a shiny chance!  I watched the new anime The Rising of the Shield Hero and was honestly not that impressed (especially with the last few episodes).  I’ve read the chapters that depict that battle and they drew out it, a lot.  Though I have to say I’m looking for to the next episode where some characters get their comeuppance (read the princess and the King)!

I also watched what’s out for the anime Wise Man’s Grandson.  It’s another transported to another world anime based off a light novel.  It has a man get reborn into a new world when he dies and is taught magic by his adopted grandfather (who is very famous, but never tells the main character).   He’s very powerful by the time he becomes 15, but he’s never taught anything about the common sense of the world.  Watch as he goes to Magic Academy and changes the world!

Finally (for this part) I watched the first season of Overlord (another anime from a light novel based on a transported person).  This one has a gamer whose favorite game is shutting down.  He’s the last of his guild around and decides to stay online until the server is shut down.  He changes a line in an NPC, saying that she’s in love with him.  When the server is shut down, he and the base are transported to a new world.  The NPC’s come to life and he is stuck as a Lich.  He investigates the world and plans to spread the name of his guild Aniz Ooal Gown so if others of his guild are there, they’ll find him.  There are now three seasons and 13 light novels out now.

I’ll do the new fanfics before the quest stories.  The author of Mauling Snarks (CmptrWz) has a new story, Hybrid Hive: Eat Shard?  It’s a Worm and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  A broken Unison device from Belka finds Taylor triggering and finding her a good match (magically) ‘eats’ the Shard.  It’s interesting even though there are only three chapters so far.

Next, I read Overlord – Lich and Vampire by Seerking (because I was watching the anime).  It’s the same, except another guild member logs on not long before the server shuts down and is also transported with everyone.  Watch as she changes things (though not much since it’s only five chapters and hasn’t been updated since 2017).

Then, sakurademonalchemist came out with a new story (though I know it from a compliation fic), Demon Skylark.  It’s a KHR and Naruto crossover where Kyouya is reborn (lol) into Naruto Uzumaki.  He hates Konoha because it’s full of fake carnavores and he runs away to Suna.  There he meets Fem Gaara (Gaia) and they become close.  Only one chapter so far.

Onto the quest with Myrddin de Celestis, Chapter 20 is Ruby’s Fate.  It was a two-chapter RWBY and Harry Potter crossover.  Fem. Harry leaves her universe and ends up in the RWBY one.  There’s not much here, but she ends up helping them during the end of season 2.

Chapter 21 is Hidden Paths.  It was an eight-chapter Harry Potter story where after Dumbledore dies, Harry discovers that Dumbles sealed away much of his potential.  It starts coming back to him in segments.  He and Ginny train to put an end to the war.  Then Dumbles returns.  It’s okay but needs some editing.  Chapter 22 (Impossible Awakening) is a different version of the first chapter (it’s better, but darker).

Chapter 23 is GHOST.  It was a seven-chapter Harry Potter and Danny Phantom crossover.  Danny Phantom is a really great cartoon that ended too abruptly.  It’s about Danny Fenton, whose parents are ghost hunters.  They build a ghost portal, but it doesn’t work.  Danny accidentally fixes it, but becomes half ghost.  He uses his ghost form to fight and capture the ghosts.  As I said, they ended things really fast.  I wish they had continued it.

Harry almost dies saving a kid and awakens his ghost side.  He uses it to reveal the dark side of Hogwarts.  Along with finding a painting with two more founders.  It’s an okay one, but not the greatest.  Chapter 24 (Spirit of the Phantasm) is the same, but different and was started after this one.  It focuses on going to the Greengrass house first.

Chapter 25 is Time Will Tell.  It was a Harry Potter story with five chapters.  In it, Harry and Ginny have lived to a future where the war is lost.  They use an artifact to go back in time but end up in their baby bodies.  Not much, but it’s not bad.

Chapter 26 is Shifters.  I’ve read this one a while back and it was fun.  It was a twelve-chapter Harry Potter and Negima crossover.  It has Harry discovering he is a shifter after second year and can change into anyone he touches.  He fakes his death and makes a new identity (Eva from Negima) to give Ginny a friend.  They bring changes to Hogwarts.  Chapter 27 (TransShift) is a Christmas 5th year version where he doesn’t fake his death.  It’s three chapters, but no Negima crossover.

Chapter 28 is Copykitten.  It was a two-chapter Harry Potter and Naruto crossover.  It has Fem. Harry being hidden as a male from everyone (including herself).  She has mystical eyes that allow her to copy everything she sees, including spells.  Doesn’t get much past her going into the Leaky Cauldron.

Chapter 29 is Balance in the Power of Gaia.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter story where Harry is under a spell that causes people/creatures to fall in love with him.  He rebels and ends up at the Creeveys.  It’s kinda meh in my opinon.

The last one I’ll talk about is Chapter 30, Avenge the Lost.  It was a three-chapter Harry Potter, MCU and Avengers crossover.  Harry is the brother of the Boy-Who-Lived and when Death Eaters ‘kill’ his youngest sister (she is brought back but doesn’t have control of her magic) he claims he’ll have vengeance and runs away.  He meets Black Widow and they have a brief fling.  Years later, he returns and starts taking out DEs.  It ends with Fury sending Black Widow after Harry for the Avenger Initiative.

That’s it for today.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next week.  May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

A Movie Week (and Another New Quest?)

Hello readers! I’m actually posting on Friday (gasp), I know it’s a shock.  It was an uneventful week, but things did happen that I’ll talk about later.  First though, there has been an update for PoGo that include several new Gen 4 Pokémon in the wild and 3 new lure modules that can help evolve into Magnazone, Glacion, Leafion and Probopass.  I’ve only done the first and last, but I’ll do the others tomorrow or most likely during the community day for Torchic on Sunday.

I read more of Ascension Book One: Bloodline (almost finished) and reread Issei – The Gaming Gear, Naruto: The Game of Life and some of Death March and Harry Potter and the Stargate.  The new chapters this week were – SAO: The Eroge, The Unseen Hunt, Master Potter of Kamar-Taj, Seerking’s Asylum (Mon & Fri), Mauling Snarks (Mon & Fri), Service with a Smile, Eighteen Years a Prodigy, Uzamaki Naruko: To the Victor, the Spoils V2, Heroes Assemble!, Ginny’s Plan, Titanfall, Kingdom Drabbles, Famiglia Drabbles, Short Story Drabbles (Thurs & Fri), Supernatural Drabbles & Taylor Varga.

I’ll be talking about Detective Pikachu and the Saga of Tanya the Evil movie so it’s time for a

*Spoiler Warning!*

Okay, so Detective Pikachu was amusing and cute and I enjoyed it a lot.  I had wondered, even from just the previews, if Pikachu was really the dad.  Thus, I was not surprised it was the case.  I was interested in the fact the Mewtwo was the one from the first Pokémon movie (mentions of it being created in the Kanto region 20 years ago, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s been 20 years since the first movie) and wondered what happened with Ash in that world.

Moving on, I was also not surprised that the invalid father, not the son, was the culprit.  Yeah, that plot twist wasn’t very twisty.  What was, was that he wanted to take over Mewtwo’s body and put everyone in their Pokémon’s bodies.  I mean really, I’m fairly sure only he benefited from that.  What was really cool was the Ditto that could turn into humans.  I mean, it was shown in Sun and Moon that they could do that, but wow!

The rest was fine, but not great.  Oh, I’m not sure if I mentioned it, but the actual Pokémon movie this year is a remake of the first one, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.  Not sure what they’re going to change, but could be interesting.

Onto the Saga of Tanya the Evil movie, it was interesting.  It covers what happens in books 3 & 4, but changes where some of the interactions take place and advances some of the character’s story arc (I mean with Mary Sue [really, that’s such a stupid name]).  I haven’t read book 5 (the last one out in the US and I can’t find translations for the other 5), but Tanya hasn’t met her again bookwise after a brief encounter during her days testing things near the England equivalant.  However, in the movie, Mary and her unit are in Moscow when Tanya and her battalion attacked it.  Mary encounters Tanya and see her father’s gun.  She asks God (Being X) for help and has his blessing on her device throughout the movie.  They encounter each other again when Tanya is defending her new base and Mary Sue almost kills her, but Tanya wounds her and Mary is rescued.

It otherwise follows the book faithfully including, amusingly or disgustingly, the creepy guy from the Russian equivalent who wants (sexually) Tanya (who I remind you is only like 11 or 12).  The movie ends with Tanya and crew getting two months in the rear testing before (as always) Tanya’s good work gets her more subordinates and back to the front lines.

Also, I’ll talk about a fic by rayrae118 here because it definitely has spoilers.  Don’t You Cry No More is an Avengers: Endgame fic where Cap goes back and returns the stones, with a twist.  This Cap has made up with Iron Man and spent time with him and his family.  When he returns the Soul stone last, he is given the option of giving up his life for Tony’s, which he does.  It’s a sad One-shot, but worth reading.

*End Spoiler Warning!*

Following that I got an update for Price of Blood by ack1308 and realized I haven’t talked about it yet.  It’s a Worm fic where after the locker incident and before the start of the story, Taylor is attacked by boys sent by Sophia.  Before she’s knocked out, she finally gives the command to attack to her bugs and they don’t stop until she wakes up.  Many people die and the PRT take Taylor in.  Coil learns of Sophia’s imminent arrest; he convinces her the PRT is using her in an undercover operation and has her join the Undersiders.  It’s interesting, but a very sad fic.

I also started reading The Mythical Codex to the Multiverse by (currently, I swear, this author has changed their name so many times) Myrddin de Celestis.  It’s a compliation fic, but currently the author has been turning all of their older fics that they’re not working on into a single chapter and sticking them one by one in this one. [update, I even found that I’ve already made a page for them under Myrddin le Faye.  The one fic, Mythical Night, will be added to the new page for them and the old page deleted.]

Of the original compliation fics, there were crossovers with Infamous (the Game about a man who’s given electrical powers), Battle Girls: Time Paradox (A young boy from our time ends up in an alternate past where there are only girls and he helps Nobunaga Oda) and A Certain Scientific Railgun (A Certain Magical Index side story focusing on Railgun).  I’ll probably been working through them all of the coming week, so I’ll probably focus on each of such ‘chapters’ as their own fic (as they once were) and talk about them next time.  Lol, it’ll be my ‘new’ quest!

The first one is starts at chapter 18 and is called Thunderbird of Ilvermorny and was a single chapter fic.  It’s a HP fic sometime after the fall of Voldemort and Dahlia Evans goes to Ilvermorny in America.  Doesn’t say much about who she is as it really only introduces the character.  Hadn’t read this one before.

The other, and last one I’ll talk about today, was Star Class, a Harry Potter and Lyrical Nanoha crossover.  It was a seven-chapter fic (that I had read before) where Harry and Ginny break free of their shackles (but not their multiple oblivations) and plan to die to in the Department of Mysteries.  They end up far in the future and join an academy that trains to stop an invasion.  They only briefly meet Fate and Nanoha, but it’s like in the six or seventh ‘chapter.’

That’s it for this week.  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next Friday.  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!

Yeah, that Super Bowl … A Bit of Let Down, Wasn’t It?

Hi friends, I don’t have much to report this weekend because of Kingdom Hearts 3, the Super Bowl and making the fanfiction archive. The Super Bowl was kinda a let down right? I mean, it was a game of many firsts for a Super Bowl, but I’m not sure ‘lowest scoring game’ is one that either team wanted. Some of the commercials were interesting but last years were better and the Half-time show was okay, but not the greatest especially with all the bleeping. In other news, the fanfiction archive is growing, but it’s not done yet.

Kingdom Hearts 3, is an awesome game. I’ve done most of the worlds shown in trailers: Tangled, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, Frozen, Monster’s Inc. and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Big Hero 6 is next and we’ll find out where we go from there. There are a lot of cut-scenes in-between worlds cause there’re just so many characters to follow. I’ll really looking forward to where this all is leading!

Story-wise, I continued reading Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches – Revenge is Best Served Cold and started rereading Harry Potter and the Stargate. The new chapters for this weekend are: Relic of the Future, Seerking’s Asylum, Hive Daughter, The Unseen Hunt, Tsunami and Mauling Snarks..

I started reading the sequel to the Danger-verse story I mentioned last time by whydoyouneedtoknow called, Living Without Danger. It follows Harry and the Pack throughout their first two years at Hogwarts and their adventures without Danger around. It’s good and looking forward to the rest.

I also got a updated for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, called Peace through Power by Vherstinae. It’s a Command & Conquer (Game) and Worm Crossover where Taylor finds a journal of her mother’s time under Lustrum and finds the phrase ‘Peace Through Power.’ She uses this and her mother’s powerful family to free herself from Winslow and the story goes on from there. It’s only nine chapters so far, but it’s interesting.

Finally, I started reading a Harry Potter and Stargate SG-1 crossover called Harry Potter and The Chance at a New Life by kossboss. It has the basilisk bite weakening the soul piece in Harry’s head after second year, allowing Harry to take all the memories and destroy it. Using them and looking over his life, he decides to take all he can and go through the unlocked ‘Veil of Death’ to an alternate reality. He ends up in room with the Quantum Mirror (before SG-1 gets there). Watch how his presence changes things! I haven’t finished, but it looks like its still going!

See everyone on Friday. I look forward to a finishing another day of work and continuing KH3. Have a great week and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!
