Sorry for the Day Wait

Sorry everyone, I went to sleep early yesterday and it wasn’t until today that I remembered I need to post.  I figured I’d just wait and put today’s post in it too.  On to the posts (now it’s very early Saturday, go figure)

Tuesday

I started today by reading a few more chapters in Becoming a Man Among Men.  Then I reread a Pokemon one-shot and the some chapters from the fanfiction it’s a sort of prequel to – ‘I Swear It’ and ‘The Master Challenge: Intro and Kanto Arcs’ both by NoSignalBlueScreen.  I Swear It is a Ash/Misty story (They don’t get together but it deals more with them starting to acknowledge their feelings) that happens during the solo training trip mentioned in The Master Challenge.  The Master Challenge is set after Kalos (though the author started writing at the beginning of Kalos) and Ash decides he needs to go on a solo training trip with his Pokemon to get stronger.  A year later, the Master Challenge is announced and all of Ash’s friends/traveling companions & rivals show up to take it.  It involves going through all of the regions to find something in each one, but wait, what is Team Rocket doing!?  And what’s this about the gang’s parents? The author splits each of the regions into a separate fic.  I like this author and all of his stories, there are more one-shots dealing with other characters and their backstories plus several longer fics I’ll mention later.  NoSignalBlueScreen’s profile is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5500013/NoSignalBlueScreen.  I Swear It’ link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10091012/1/I-Swear-It and The Master Challenge: Intro and Kanto Arcs’s link is here – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10077502/1/The-Master-Challenge-Intro-and-Kanto-Arcs.

I also got a few new chapters today, the first is a Naruto story that happens after the “Finding Tsunade” arc called ‘The Unexpected Lord of Foxes’ by Solvdrage.  Solvdrage is a fellow Naruto/Hinata shipper and has many stories with that paring.  This one has the Hyuuga Elders deposing Hinata’s dad and planning to punish Hinata and Negi.  Hinata gets to express her feelings to Naruto and he decides to help her and the clan out, with some (as mentioned in the title) unexpected help.  I read the new chapter and started to reread the story (it’s only 12 chapters).  The link to Solvdrage’s profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1094449/Solvdrage and the link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7032511/1/The-Unexpected-Lord-of-Foxes.  The second new chapter I got was from a story I mentioned last post – ‘Skittering Campione’.

The last story I read was a Naruto and Bleach crossover named, ‘Kitsune of Las Noches’ by brown phantom.  It has Gin and Kaname saving Naruto from a mob when he was young and training him along with Aizen and the Espada (This happens a while before the start of Bleach).  He goes back to Konoha to become a Genin, see how his training and outlook change the Naruto universe.  It’s a great fic from a great author.  He has written almost 50 stories (Most of them Naruto) and their all good (even if there are more than a few unfinished).   The link to brown phantom’s profile is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1634435/brown-phantom and the link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10726613/1/Kitsune-of-Las-Noches.

Other than some more time on Fate/Grand Order and KHUx, that’s all for today.

Wendesday

I didn’t read much today, but I did start rereading another Code Geass fanfiction ‘Code Geass: The Rise of the Black Prince’ by nanoman79.  It’s an interesting story with the starting point that Lelouch & Nunnaly’s mother didn’t die and what would happen if they finished growing up in Britannia.  It has 107 chapter and a sequel with some chapters, but the author hasn’t written anything since 2016.  Not to say they don’t have good stories, but it always annoys me when people don’t finish their fics or at least give a good reason why they stop.  The link to the fanfic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6151698/1/Code-Geass-The-Rise-of-the-Black-Prince.

Other than that, I got some new chapters.  The first one is a Naruto & Harry Potter crossover called ‘A Ninja Summoned’ by Baleygr.  It has Harry being transported to the Naruto verse when he was young (which runs 2 times faster than the Harry Potter verse), becoming a ninja, going through the Naruto timeline before the main part of the fanfiction and marrying a female Naruto.  After all this in the prologue, an adult Harry is summoned by the Goblet of Fire from in front of his wife to participate in the Tri-wizard Tournament.  Follow Harry and the team that comes from Konoha in their adventures in the Potter verse!  It’s on it’s fifth chapter and if good.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12584637/1/A-Ninja-Summoned.

The next new chapter is the next story by Seerking – ‘Worm – Justice for All’.  It’s a crossover between Worm and the Japanese light novel series “Infinite Dendrogram”.  Infinite Dendrogram is about a young man who starts a VR game that gives each player an Embryo that evolves as the player grows.  The main character gets a rare type that looks human a Type-Maiden.  This fanfic has Taylor getting a Type-Maiden Embryo.  The first arc of the story was already posted on his plot bunny story – Seerking’s Asylum for Plot Bunnies That Won’t Stop Bugging Me, but he’s edited it and is posting the chapters in his line up (it’s only on the second now).  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12930247/1/Worm-Justice-For-All.

The last one is from a series I haven’t mentioned yet, the supposed rival of Pokemon, Digimon.  Digimon is a show with multiple series with different ‘digidestined’ who partner up with a digimon to save the human and digital world.  They’re not all in the same universe.  It’s called ‘Crossing Boundaries, Second Edition’ by Yua-hime.  The author is remaking their older fic.  It deals with Kuroku and Clockmon gathering the digi-destined  from the other plots for the ending of Fusion.  It mostly focuses on Daisuke, how he is treated and others think of him.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13049841/1/Crossing-Boundaries-Second-Edition.

The last thing for today was that I was reminded I saw Mission Impossible: Fallout this weekend.  I liked it because it tied all the other movies together.  The bad guy was way to easy to spot though and the plot was fairly standard.  To sortof quote Smosh Games’ Honest Trailer, ‘Running, dangling, then more running’.  If you haven’t seen Honest Trailers: go to YouTube and search for Honest Trailers, they’re really funny.  The link to Smosh Games’ channel is –  https://www.youtube.com/user/SmoshGames.

That’s it for today – see you on the next post – right now.

Thursday

So as I mentioned at the top, I’m writing this on Friday (sorry again).  I remember yesterday fairly well, so on to it.

Yesterday was mostly filled with Code Geass: The Rise of the Black Prince and finishing The Unexpected Lord of Foxes, but I did get two new chapters.  The first one I’ll mention was ‘The Lady of the Flies’ by InsanityIncarnate90 and is a Worm and High School DxD.  At the end of Worm, Taylor is dropped into the DxD verse and is reincarnated into a devil by a young Rias Gremory.  See how Taylor changes things.  The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12586479/1/The-Lady-of-the-Flies.

The second one is a fic called ‘Out of Time’ by Saint Danielle.  It is a My Hero Academia fanfiction.  For those who don’t know it, it deals with a senior middle school student named Izuku who is powerless in a world where those having no having powers are the minority.  He studies heroes and wants to be one, but is looked down on for it.  He impresses his hero, All Might, who passes his ‘Quirk’ (what powers are called) on to him (the only one that can be passed on).  Watch Izuku take on the name, Deku, and study to become a great hero with others, while dealing with supervillains.  In Out of Time, Izuku is one of the first heroes and on his final battle, he disappears.  He reappears many years later, during the original stories time, and has to figure out how to adapt while figuring out who the bad guys really are.  It’s only three chapters, but it’s good.  The link to the fic is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12942482/1/Out-of-Time.

That’s it for yesterday, no to today.

Friday

Once again not much, mostly Code Geass: The Rise of the Black Prince, I’m on chapter 61.  I got new chapter for previously mentioned fics: Taylor Varga, Mauling Snarks and Elemental Sky.  I also started a completely new fanfic, ‘Child of the Storm’ by Nimbus Llewelyn.  It’s a crossover between Harry Potter and The Avengers (Marvel verse).  It happens in Year 3 (now in 2013) of HP and in 2013 Marvel movie verse (but Loki is good now).  Thor was James Potter with his memories erased, but was killed before a merging could be done.  His memories were blocked because he went mad and is only reminded of them when Harry mentally calls for help as he’s falling from his broom in the match with Dementors.  Loki reminds Thor and the story happens.  Read for more at – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8897431/1/Child-of-the-Storm.  I’m only a few chapters in, but it’s good.

I also started rereading a Bleach fic called ‘Ichigo Awakens’ by Teloch.  It has Ichigo saving his mother (Though she’s now in a coma) when he is young and starts training to take on Aizen and Ywatch.  It’s a really good fic.  The link to the story is – https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11899396/1/Ichigo-Awakens.

That’s it for today, though it just turned 12 so it’s now Saturday. Whatever, I WILL post on Monday.  See you then!

Fourth Day

Hello, everyone! As has been established by the last few titles, I am not a great namer.  I’ll try to have better titles, but I feel for the first week I’m going to follow this trend.  It just wouldn’t feel right.  Or you know it just might be my having watched Skyward Wing playing Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days recently and the summer quest in Kingdom Hearts Union x also saying what day you’re playing in, who knows?

Anywho, I jumped around a lot today in what I read.  I did read a few chapters of Ashes of the Past and got up to start of chapter 33, when Ash gets a rematch against Richie in the Indigo League (not that Richie knows it’s a rematch, but whatever).  I interrupted that with rereading a Worm fanfic called ‘I, Panacea’ by ack1308 on fanfiction.net.  I think he has a different user name on AO3, but I don’t remember what it is at this moment.  I just checked to make sure, but all of his fics include the Worm story and he is one of my favorite Worm fic writers.  This one is a sequel to a physical self-insert story called ‘Security’ and has the author’s character from that story mentally inserted into a Worm character’s head alongside her, namely Panacea.  She is one of the main characters that is in bad situation that gets worse and eventually breaks her.  Some people love her, some people hate her, but she is a popular character to get help in fanfics.  Definitely recommend these two fics (though I, Panacea is not finished), their ‘sequel’ ‘I, Scion’ (which is a 3 chapter silly fic) and all of his fics.

Next, reread a few chapters from the fic ‘From Fake Dreams’ by Third Fang including the latest chapter.  From Fake Dream is set in the Fate/Stay Night storyline of the TYPE-MOON universe.  Fate/Stay Night is a Japanese visual novel/Eroge (which means it might include sex and sexual themes) that has anime adaptations of it.

I’m going to pause here.  Just to be clear, in this blog I am not going to talk about porn or sex.  I am however going to be talking about stories that have that in them. So that anyone who is underage or doesn’t want read about such things is happy, I will post R rated content, before and after the topic, like this.

R rated content

Anyway, while there are sex and sexual themes in the visual novel, it’s not a main staple in either it or From Fake Dreams.

R rated content

Fate/Stay Night has three main storylines you can follow to get one of three girls: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works and Heaven’s Feel.  There are variations of these storylines, but they don’t really matter to this discussion.  I mention this because in From Fake Dreams, long before the main story, the father of the main character (Shiro Emiya) Kiritsugu Emiya has dreams of those storylines and the storyline one of the main characters Archer.  Based on this information (which he does verify as much as he can), he sets things up so that his son can survive and defeat all the world-ending threats (and fulfill some personal wishes too).  Things don’t exactly work out like Kiritsugu hopes, but when does it ever.  Still a great story that has 52 great chapters with more incoming.  He also has several other great stories that I will talk about later (including one tomorrow because there’s already going to be a lot on here for today).

Moving on finally to something other than fanfiction and anime, I watched the movie Alpha in theaters today.  I really liked it, but those who don’t like subtitles shouldn’t see it because all dialogue in the movie is subtitles.  I don’t actually know the name of the language they were using, but it’s set 20,000 years ago so who knows.  Well, I could (and probably will) look up the language.  See I even did it in the middle of that sentence (it’s fictional).  Moving on, I thought it was a great movie with stunning visuals and sounds that really capture the wilderness of long ago.  For those who don’t know about the movie, it’s about a the chief’s son trying to get home after an accident and befriending a wolf along the way.  Thus the wolf/dog became man’s best friend.  The film does a good job of showing the story rather than speaking it.  I would definitely recommend it.

Well, that’s all for today, look forward to seeing y’all tomorrow (as it were).  Have a good night!

Third Day

Hello, guys and gals!  Didn’t read much today because I had some other things to do today.  However, I did read 23 chapters of Ashes of the Past, the fanfiction I mentioned yesterday.  By the 24th chapter Ash already has the 8 badges for the Kanto region (Red, Blue & Yellow games) and should get to the first movie soon (the author includes the movies in the story).

Yesterday I also read a Harry Potter one shot fanfiction (with only one chapter).  It was called ‘In the Heat of the Night’ by Brennus, who is a writer of slightly darker Harry/Ginny stories.  This one is about Ginny having to pay the consequences for her parents breaking the law on Dumbledore’s orders in a different storyline.  It has a happy ending, in a way, but not for everyone.  He has several other Harry Potter stories (all Harry/Ginny), a RWBY two part series and a Darker than BLACK fic.  The link to his page is – https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4577618/Brennus.

For those who don’t know, RWBY is an online animated show by Rooster Teeth.  It follows Team RWBY, a group of four girls named Ruby, Weiss, Blake & Yang, and their friends through school training to hunt beasts called Grim.  The characters are based off of fairy tale characters: Ruby (Red Riding Hood), Weiss (Snow White), Blake (Beauty & and the Beast) & Yang (Rapunzel or Goldie Locks).  However, they are badass!  I mean, Ruby has a huge scythe that can turn into a gun!  It’s definitely worth watching.  Here is a link to the first episode –   https://roosterteeth.com/episode/rwby-season-1-episode-1.  Watching the four trailers for it is also worth it, one of each of the main leads.  Here is the link to the first trailer – https://roosterteeth.com/episode/rwby-season-1-red-trailer.  Rooster Teeth has quite a few other shows that are really good, like Red vs Blue, so take a look at them too.  I can talk about Darker than BLACK and Red vs Blue on a later post.

The last thing I’ll mention is that for those who like anime theme songs and would like to hear an English Version of some of your favorite ones old and new, a YouTuber with the channel name of LeeandLie does that.  She has english versions of the Japanese Digimon theme, Full Metal Alchemist themes (original and Brotherhood), and many more.  Here is a link to her YouTube channel – https://www.youtube.com/user/LeeandLie.  You can also buy albums by her on iTunes under the name Amalee.  Check her out if you’re interested.

Wow, I think this is my shortest post yet.  See everyone tomorrow!
