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!

It’s a Week to KH3!

Hey everyone! It’s been an fun weekend.  No polls and I haven’t had time to work on getting the list of fanfic I’ve mentioned up yet, still figuring out how I want to do it.  In PoGo news, I got a shiny Feebas on Saturday’s event but no one on my town’s chat can find this month’s Spinda task.  Anyway, I continued with Taylor Varga and Drifting, along with starting to rereading Demonic Jewels and catching up with Titanfall (Fanfic).  I also watched Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2, so I am completely ready for KH3 a week from now!  This weekend’s new chapters were: The Gamer (Webcomic), Breaking the Guilded Cage, Angels and Demons, Relic of the Future, An Essence of Silver and Steel, Taylor Varga Omake (Sat, Sun, Mon), Headstart, Warlock, Price of Blood, The Unseen Hunt, Gun Bunny and Mauling Snarks.  I also learned I need to catch up with Ashes of the Past cause it had the battle the whole fic has been leading up to in a few chapters update (not that it’s finished, just that the original point of having gone back is done).

I actually read a few new stories this weekend, so get ready, cause here they come!  First is ‘Hive Daughter’ by PlateGlassArmour.  It’s a Worm fic with a slight Warhammer 40,000 crossover.  It has Taylor connecting to their Hive mind when she Triggers and learning how they do what they do.  Watch as Taylor becomes a Bio-tinker Master and try to work with the good guys (which is hard because some of them are against her), here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13012317/1/Hive-Daughter.

Next is ‘Teeth and Claws’ by TheShadowSwan.  It’s a Harry Potter and KHR crossover with a fem. Harry.  She has multiple personalities to deal with different parts of her life and eventually ends up with one called ‘Skull de Mort.’  She is called to the table of greatest because of another personality who was The Greatest Thief, Noir.  She doesn’t trust any of them, but especially Luce, Lal Mitch and Iron Hat.  Find out how she changes things by following this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12928533/1/Teeth-and-Claws.

Then, there was ‘Marvel’s Maelstrom’ by Pibbinator.  It’s a Naruto and MCU crossover that has Naruto being transported to save him by Sasuke during the battle against Kaguya.  He ends up landing near Kamar-Taj and the Ancient One takes him in and helps him.  He wants to get back to help his friends, but can’t find out how to do it.  He ends up looking for the Space Stone to help him and gets caught up in the MCU’s problems.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12365777/1/Marvel-s-Maelstrom.

On to more sakurademonalchemist, the first is on that is only on AO3, ‘Transcending Time and Space.’  It’s another crossover between Harry Potter and KHR and has fem. Harry being Fran from the future timeline.  She gets her memories back early and leaves after her OWLS to join the Varia.  She joins as a maid to easily get in, but what’s up with her and Prince the Ripper?  Find out here – https://archiveofourown.org/works/14302704/chapters/32997702.

After that is ‘An Angel and a Trickster,’ which is a Supernatural and Harry Potter crossover.  In it, fem. Harry is depressed for her fifth year when Gred and Forge summon Loki to the castle to take care of Umbridge.  Loki takes a liking to her and decides to make a deal that if he can make her happy again, she’ll go out with him.  Can he win the bet or will things come crumbling down.  Find out at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10142032/1/An-Angel-and-a-Trickster.

Third is ‘Shattered Mask’ a crossover between Naruto and MCU.  When the council tries to screw her over after the War, Fem Naruto takes the other Bijuu and vessels out of the Elemental Countries.  They scatter, but she ends up on Asgard as a bar maid.  There she meets Thor, Loki and friends.  The only one she can tolerate is Loki and she decides to help him out.  Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10709418/1/Shattered-Mask.

Fourth is ‘Crimson Typhoon,’ which is a One Piece and Naruto.  Kushina’s dad is Shanks and he picks up Fem. Naruto after his parents are killed.  She joins him on her crew and ends up working on her own. Oh, and something happened causing each nation to be it’s own island.  All of that and more, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10574085/1/Crimson-Typhoon.

Fifth is ‘Hidden Song,’ another Harry Potter and Supernatural crossover.  This time though, Harry is Bobby (more aged for reasons).  Watch as he helps the Winchesters out while dealing with England come for him. And this time England is not coming home! (sorry, when I typed the sentence before that it came to me and I couldn’t stop myself.  For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, look up Football England Coming Home Song and you’ll find it.)  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10496217/1/Hidden-Song.

Sixth (and last that I’ve read currently of their fics) is ‘Kitsune Otome,’ which is a Mai HIME (Mai OTOME) crossover.  In the battle between Sasuke and Fem. Naruto when the former is defecting, a portal is accidentally opened and she ends up in the world of Mai OTOME.  She trains to become an Otome until she can go home.  But will things be the same when she does?   Find out here –  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10368153/1/Kitsune-Otome.

Moving On, I also watched “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.”  The anime is only 16 episodes long now, but the web novel (turned light novel) is finished.  After watching all the episodes, I started reading the web novel.  Anyway, it’s about an almost 40 salary worker who saves his junior from being stabbed and gets killed.  He ends up reincarnated in another world as a slime, but a powerful one.  I haven’t finished it yet (by a long shot), but it’s interesting.

That’s everything for the weekend, but I’m going to see the new Dragon Ball Super movie tomorrow!  See you readers on Friday and May Your Heart Be Your Guiding Key!

 

No Votes on My Poll

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A sakurademonalchemist Week (with still no votes on my poll)

Well intrepid readers (the few of you there are), there has still not been any votes on my poll.  I asked a friend her opinion and since that is the only one I’ve heard so far, if no one votes then I’ll go by her decision.  I’ll post the link again in this post in the hopes that someone will read this and vote – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.  I just started classes that happen on Thursday night and am thinking of changing my posting dates if it doesn’t work out having them on the same day.  Moving to the point of this blog, I read so more Taylor Varga.  The new chapters this week are: Reality Bites Worm, Archer, Breaking the Gilded Cage (Wed & Thurs), Heroes Assemble!, Mauling Snarks (Omake), The Gamer (Webcomic), Knight of Betrayal and Taiga Cub and GATE: Thus the Chosen One Fought There.

The only series I read these past few days that wasn’t Taylor Varga or a sakura(youknowtherest) fic was ‘Mythical Night’ by Myrddin le Faye (not their original screen name, but they’ve changed it several times).  It’s a Naruto and Arrow (though it’s mostly DC universe now) crossover where the Kyubi convinces Naruto that it’s better to become a ‘hero’ than to be a ninja.  Thus he becomes the ‘Arrow’ of Konoha (the recent TV series version) and soon many others join him taking the names of DC universe heroes and villains.

R Rated Content

This one has sporadic sexual scenes and a few toned down sex scenes.

This fic can be found here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8776052/1/Mythical-Night.

As indicated last paragraph, the rest of the fanfics are by sakurademonalchemist.  The first one is ‘Moon’s Blessing’ which is a crossover between Sailor Moon and Ouran High School Host Club.  Ouran High School Host Club is a manga turned anime about a host club a rich private high school (aka a club where girls can bewooed by good looking men for money, though this one is a rich kid version with no kissing or more).  When the scholarship student Haruhi Fujioka accidentally breaks an expensive vase she is drafted into the host club, because the club thinks she’s a guy at first.  Watch as she pretends to be a boy as she works with her friends at the host club and help them become better people, just by being around.  It’s a good anime and manga with a catchy opening theme.

The fic has Usagi being the sister of the main male character, Tamaka Sou, who has stayed at her aunts because another uncle was ‘interested’ (and not in a good way).  When said uncle passes away, Usagi transfers away to Ouran to be with her brother.  Watch as an accidental change of birth leads to large changes.  The link to the fic is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11232145/1/Moon-s-Blessing.

The second story was ‘Blood for Blood’ which is a Naruto and Hellsing crossover.  Hellsing is about the vampire Alucard who works with the Hellsing Organization to keep his fellow vampires in line in England.  Watch him and his newly made partner Seras (a former police woman who he had to kill during his first job and brought her back) take on all comers from vampires, to priests, to Nazis.  The manga and the second anime version (Hellsing Ultimate) are the better ones.  The originals not bad, just not as good (in my opinion).

This fic is set far in the future of Hellsing where centuries have passed.  When the ninja villages were founded Alucard went on a killing spree and he and Seras were sealed near Konoha.  When fem Naruto finds out about them early in life, she goes and releases them.  They take form as her age and join the class.  Watch as she and her new companions change the ninja world with their bloodthirsty ways, here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11133925/1/Blood-for-Blood.

Next, I read “Forgotten Angel’ which is a Harry Potter, Supernatural and Constantine crossover.  Constantine is about John Constantine, a demon hunter who joins up with a police woman who is investigating her twin’s death.  Getting mixed up with angels and demons they seek to find their own peace.  It’s based on the DC Comic character.

In the fic, Harry is not slated to live much past birth, so Castiel is sent to take his place and kill Voldemort.  However, when he is hit with the killing curse, he forgets all his memories and as no-one in Heaven really cares about him he lives his life as ‘Harry.’  It follows the same sad story until it is found that ‘Harry’ can see the demons that pretend to be people.  He ends up living in a church, renamed Cas Sheilds, and the ‘younger brother of John Constantine.  Watch as this ‘Harry’ goes to Hogwarts and upsets the apple cart.  The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10807240/1/Forgotten-Angel.

After that it was ‘Tricksters and Gods’ and it’s sequel, ‘Pagans and Angels.’  Tricksters and Gods is a Harry Potter and MCU crossover.  After the events of the first Avengers movie, Loki is banished into human form until he is deemed worthy of returning to Asgard.  The spell goes slightly wrong and Loki ends up in Harry Potter.  After the curse on Halloween, it’s mostly Loki, with some Harry, that survives (without his memories).  Watch as Loki lives as Harry Potter and decides to not take the Magical World’s crap.  He becomes as Lawyer and drags the wizards into the 21 century.  Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10177155/1/Tricksters-and-Gods.

The second one in the series Pagans and Angels, has Harry/Loki going to the Supernatural universe to get away from Asgard and his actions to stop the Infinity Stones from falling into the hands of evil.  Follow his adventures here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10916707/1/Pagans-and-Angels.

Then there was ‘Shifting Foxes’ (the only one of the sakura fics I haven’t read before) which is a Naruto and Pokémon crossover.  It has Naruto happening after an event that shifted the planets plates and had the Pokémon disappearing for two decades.  Now only ninjas are allowed to have Pokémon.  Naruto finds an eevee when he’s young that has been experimented on that allows it to change back and forth between all of it’s evolutions except for the original three.  Watch as he and his team change the world, with some help from the Legendaries.  Read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8736838/1/Shifting-Foxes.

That’s all I’ll write about for now.  See everyone next week and I hope everyone has a great weekend and votes on my poll (really, it only takes a few seconds, please)!

I Changed the Archive and Made a Poll (Please Vote!)

Hey everyone! It’s been a week and no one has liked (or really read) any or the posts since I started this style of writing. Therefore, I made a poll that I’ll put a link to at the beginning of the post for the next week while I continue with this style. After those two weeks, I’ll look at the result and use the winning style from now on. Please take some time to vote here – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

I’ve also redone the archive section like I mentioned last time. The only direct chapter links in the Archive will be from the current month. When we get to February, I’ll move the January post links to a January page and put a link to it in Archive. When 2019 ends (and I hopefully will still be posting and have more people reading my posts), I’ll do what I did with my 2018 posts and move the month links to a new 2019 page that will be linked on the main Archive page.

These past few days I’ve read some more of Outfoxed and Lord Over the Night Sky and started rereading Prime Directive: Hero, How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk and Taylor Varga. The new chapters were from: Tsunami, Service with a Smile, Reality Bites Worm, My Hero Academia (manga chapter), It’s in the Cards, Heroes Assemble!, Taylor Varga and Death March (the online story).

Since I liked the fanfic Archer from last post, I decided to look into other stories by the author Fencer22. The first one that caught my eye was ‘Flames’ which is a Worm and KHR crossover. The only real crossover is that Taylor triggers with Dying Will flames, but not Sky. Instead of the normal Taylor’s outlook of becoming a Hero, this Taylor is more practical and wants money to prepare for the imminent end of the world (and explains why she thinks so). It’s interesting, though it only has 13 chapters. If you would like to read it, here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13042230/1/Flames.

The other one I found interesting was ‘Grind,’ which is a Worm and multiple crossover fic. It has Taylor triggering with the power to enter any type of story (Book, DVD or game) and gain the power(s) of whatever characters she or anyone she brings along play as. The only issue, they have to go through the whole story. For example, when she goes into the first book, she’s stuck ‘reading’ the book and doing whatever the main character does for four hours until the end of it, basically outing herself. It’s a good story, sadly the author decided they could not write it anymore and just posted a spattering of scenes leading up to an ‘ending’ for the last chapter. So, if you feel you can read it and not be disappointed with that ending, feel free to read it here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11375309/1/Grind.

Next, sakurademonalchemist posted a new story called, ‘Breaking the Gilded Cage.’ It’s a KHR and Natsume’s Book of Friends crossover, with a female Tsuna turning back time to her younger self to get away from the Vongola and instead taking the route of Takashi from Natsume’s Book of Friends. It’s only two chapters long so far, but it’s not bad. Kinda hard to make a decision about how a story will be in two chapters. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13166072/1/Breaking-the-Gilded-Cage.

Following that I found the fic ‘Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R-eset’ by Starlight’s Poet. It’s a Lelouch of the Rebellion story with side stories like Code Geass: Akito of the Exiled and game storylines included. It starts off with Lelouch getting the chance to relive his rebellion from the start and him taking it. He’s more powerful this time and knows what happened to his mother, so he can focus on taking down Britannia. The story is interesting and I haven’t finished it yet up to the current chapter yet, so I hope it continues to be so. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10704227/1/Code-Geass-Lelouch-of-the-Rebellion-R-eset.

Finally, I started rereading ‘Neo Yondaime Hokage’ by Psycho G. The story is a Naruto one where Minato not only seals the Kyuubi into Naruto; he also seals himself. Naruto grows up as Tsunade’s ‘son’ and soon finds multiple women after him. But, just because he is stronger doesn’t mean he’ll bulldoze through fights. He still will have issues, just different ones than the normal ones. He even accidentally visits the ‘canon’ universe and changes things for the better! It hasn’t been updated since 2015, but hopefully it will eventually be updated. Here is the link to the story – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3201446/1/Neo-Yondaime-Hokage.

Going back to more of what I watched during my ‘Christmas break from blogging’ (I’ll be doing one or two movies/shows for the next few posts because I watched a lot during that time period) I watched “The Mummy Returns” from the Mummy series. I’ve seen it and the rest of the series before, but I always enjoy rewatching them. Watching Rick and Evelyn O’Conner battle it out against Imhotep while trying to save their son is great. I was sad Evelyn didn’t return for the third movie, but it was good anyway. Not sure which one is my favorite, though the third one was probably my least favorite. I would recommend any of them though if you haven’t watched them yet!

To finish it off, I watched “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” I would have liked it better if I had read the story before hand, but it was what was decided to watch at that time. I found it interesting, even if I missed the first part. I’ll probably read the books sometime, but I think I’ll like the books better because it looks like they just crammed the second book at least into the last 30 mins of the movie.

Anyway, that’s the end of the post today! Look forward to the post on Monday and don’t forget to vote! Here’s the link again, just in case – https://linkto.run/p/24VJOOZJ.

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year! So this on this last weekend of the year 2018, I actually have less than normal because I had work today and Friday. I finished rereading Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell and Harry Potter and the Dark Lady. The new chapters this weekend were: Ashes to Flame, Mauling Snarks (Fri & Mon), Relic of the Future, Gun Bunny, 4 chapters of An Essence of Silver and Steel, Reading Chronicles Book 1: To the Victor, the Spoils, Heroes Assemble!, The Unseen Hunt, and Deku: The Telekenetic Hero.

Again, I’ll start with the fanfiction and movie to TV shows and movies after that. The first one I’ll talk about is ‘Lord Over the Night Sky’ by Triser. It’s a Harry Potter and Lyrical Nanoha crossover where Vernon takes Harry to Japan when they first get him and drop him off at an orphanage. Harry ends up with Hayate and gets the ‘Book of Darkness’ instead of her. Things change and do so even more when Harry (and the others) gets his letter to Hogwarts. The chapters are shorter and the spelling is sometimes off, but it’s good otherwise. I’ve only reread 17 chapters of the 114, but this is also the first of several stories in the storyline. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7018702/1/Lord-Over-the-Night-Sky.

Next is ‘Outfoxed’ by hazeleyes180. It’s a Naruto fic where a female Kyuubi trains Naruto after things happen when he’s younger. It’s a harem fic for Naruto with girls like Hinata and Anko. He gets stronger fast, but it doesn’t mean things are easier for him. There’re no R Rated things, but they do skirt around it. The unfortunate thing is that it hasn’t been updated since August 2016. Here is the link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8211184/1/Outfoxed.

Following that is the (current) last story in the Witches Secret triology, ‘Harry Potter and the Corvinus Strain.’ The story is mostly on the Witches Secret fanfiction story, it’s just missing the last two chapters. These last two can be found on the Yahoo group Rotaryfile. It mixes strongly with Underworld series. As I haven’t watched it, I can’t say anything about how the author portrays it. It’s interesting, but there’s really no one who can stop Harry in the story.

Then there was ‘Archer’ by Fencer22. It’s a Worm and Fate/Stay Night crossover where Taylor gets Archer (Counter Guardian EMIYA) as her powers, with him teaching her how to use them. She’s put under Master/Stranger protocols immediately and has to deal with them for a while. There were eight chapters when I read it, but a new chapter came out today. It’s good and I look forward to it continuing. The link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13137917/1/Archer.

I also read another new story by Selector called, ‘Titanfall.’ It’s a Titanfall and Worm crossover, with Taylor calling a Titan with an AI when she Triggers. It’s interesting, but only 4 chapters so far. Again, never played Titanfall, so I can’t comment on it.  Taylor’s been out all four chapters, so it will be fun once she’s up. Find out here at this link – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13083668/1/Titanfall.

I haven’t watched anything this weekend, but I never finished what I saw last week. The first I’ll mention is “Meet the Robinsons.” I really like this movie and the music in it. It’s about a child inventor, Lewis, who thinks he’ll never amount to anything and how a young boy, Wilber, from the future works to change his mind. It’s has a good theme of never give up and to ‘Keep Moving Forward.’ This is a great movie for all ages.

I also watched “Kubo of the Two Strings” for the first time. It was a great movie, but a sad one. I was called to help with something for the last scene, but luckly I have it here at home and was able to finish it recently. It was a different kind of animation, but it wasn’t bad. Also a great movie for all ages.

I watched part one episode of “Love It of List It” on HGTV. It was okay. The wife was kinda, I don’t really want to stay here, but I think any of the ones I’m being shown are right either. I didn’t see the end, but hopefully they found what they wanted.

I also watched a few episodes of ‘Property Brothers’ (yeah, there were a lot of building/buy house shows on, I know). It was interesting, but there a lot of issues and the main episode I saw had rich kids buying their first house and calling daddy for extra money of unnecessary additions. So, I’d have to see more to really get an opinion.

I’ll also be making a 2018 section for the archive this week, look forward to it. See everyone on Thursday and have a happy start to 2019!

It’s a Death March Weekend!

Friday

Today (and most of this weekend, at least) I’ll be rereading and then catching up with the web novel I mentioned last post, Death March. I got the 43rd part of the 10th act before I started writing this post. The new chapters today are – Ashes to Flame, Tsunami, and Mauling Snarks.

There was also a new chapter for a story I haven’t mentioned yet, ‘Devil Ninja’ by The Engulfing Silence. It’s a crossover between Naruto and High School DxD, where Naruto ends up in the DxD world with no chakra.

Yeah, so this one does have sex and sexual situations in it. Just in case anyone doesn’t want to read that stuff (or is underage).

The extra story I’ll talk about today is one I mentioned earlier, “The Prince of Tennis” (it was when I was talking about the abundance (and variety) of sports manga/anime. The Prince of Tennis is a story by Takashi Konomi about a young tennis prodigy named Ryoma Echizen who just returned from America with his family. He ends up at Seishun Academy (it’s a middle school) and joins its strong tennis team. After beating some of his seniors, he ends up on the team’s regulars. They work together to try and get to and win the National Middle School Tennis Championship. However Ryoma also wants to get better to win against his Dad (who’s much better than him). It’s an older series, but it’s still popular. The original series ran for 42 manga volumes and had 178 episodes. It has a sequel ongoing called “New Prince of Tennis” which is about after the Nationals and onto the Worlds. I recommend this one very much.

Nothing more today, see everyone tomorrow!

Once again, I read more Death March and got to near the middle of the 13th act at part 20. The new chapters for today were Reincarnation Roulette, Relic of the Future and Heroes Assemble! There was really nothing else today, so onto my replacement story, next paragraph!

I’ll go more in-depth for another story I mentioned about when I talked about sports, “Eyeshield 21” by Riichiro Inagaki. It’s about Sena Kobayakawa, a high school freshman at Deimon High who is a frequent gopher for bullies. His childhood friend, Mamori, protects him, but he finds it embarrassing. The only thing he has going for him is his speed. The devil captain and quarterback of the ‘American Football’ club (yeah, so looked this up and it turns out that this and football of the rest of the world have the same base sport that split when football decided to not use hands. Soccer was a slang term for “Association Football” (no hands) in Europe, but is now only used in North America. Don’t know why “Rugby Football” decided to drop ‘Rugby’, but now there are two footballs. Who knew), Hiruma sees him and tricks him into becoming the third member of the team (along with Kurita, a lineman) as the running back (they borrow members from other teams until they eventually get a full roster). To hide his identity, Sena pretends to be the manager and during the games wears a tinted Eyeshield and has the number 21 (thus Eyeshield 21). Sena gains confidence and grows as they strive to get to the Christmas Bowl. This is another oldie, but goodie. It has 37 manga volumes and 145 anime episodes.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I Love Ya, Tomorrow. You’re Only a Day Away!

Sunday

I only got to the end of part 13 of Death March today, but that’s because I reread (and caught up on) Deku: The Golden Saiyan Hero of Hope that had a new chapter today. The other new chapters were from An Unseen Hunt and an omake for Taylor Varga. Once more I read nothing else new, so its time for the talk about another series!

This time is “Cross Game” a baseball series by Mitsuru Adachi, who has written several other baseball and sport series. Cross Game is about Ko Kitamura, who is a great pitcher. His childhood friend, Wakuba Tsukishima (the second daughter in the family), treats him as her boyfriend and wants him and her sister Aoba (the third daughter) to get along. Her last dream she relays to them before she dies in an accident while they’re in elementary school is for them (Ko and Aoba) to go to Koshien (the high school baseball championship) together. He eventually joins the baseball team in high school and she becomes the manager because she can’t join the team (even though she hates him, mostly). They overcome the team’s difficulties and work toward their goal of making that dream come true. It’s a sweet story, though it has a sad beginning. It has 17 volume of manga and 50 anime episodes (I really love the opening and closing themes!). I very much hope you read/watch this one.

See everyone when I post tomorrow! (also did anyone else see the new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 with part of the new opening theme! It looks and sounds great, though I’m sad we won’t be able to hear the full version unless we pre-order/get the album and even then not until it comes out on Jan 18 a week before the game comes out).

Monday

So today I got to part 20 of act 15 (the middle of it) of Death March. There are only 16 acts currently, but it (again currently) has 78 parts and an intermission. I may finish tomorrow, but I should be finished on Wednesday at the latest. The new chapters today are Mauling Snarks and How Eating a Strange Fruit Gave Me My Quirk.

There was a new chapter for a story from ack1308 called, ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ It’s a Worm fic where Danny and his wife Annette were a hitman team called Dark. They stopped after Taylor was born, but when Taylor is put in the locker and her favored dog (only in this fic) is stolen, he dons his former identity to get back the dog and get revenge for his daughter. It only had 3 chapters (and is infrequently updated), but it has an interesting beginning. The link to the story is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11811377/1/Are-You-Afraid-of-the-Dark.

For today’s new series, I’ll take a break from the sports and Japanese stories. “The Hardy Boys” by several people under the pen name Franklin W. Dixon is an older children’s mystery series about brothers Frank and Joe Hardy. They’re teenagers who are amateur detectives, following after their father who is also one. They usually assist their father or stumble onto something with his cases. The original series was started in 1927, but were revised in 1959 to be less racist and simpler. It ran until 2005, when “Undercover Brothers” started. That ran until 2012 and “The Hardy Boys Adventures” started in 2013. The original series has 190 books (though some only consider the first 58 to be ‘canon’). It’s a fun series for your kids, I should know I read some when I was young!

See you, my readers, when I post on Thursday!
