Top ‘o th’ mornin’ to ya, Patrons!

Happy St Patrick’s Day and welcome to a what I really hope is a cute little oneshot from a cute little time-wasting app called Neko Atsume!

Come play with us.

The “game” is relatively uncomplicated; the player has a space where they can set out different foods and toys that attract cats. You can’t actually do anything with the cats except take their pictures to put in your album, but the cats reward the player with fish (that can be used to purchase more items) and the occasional collectible. The app isn’t really a “game” in my opinion, since there isn’t any interaction with the characters or any kind of goal to be reached, but it is cute and appeals to the completionist in me.

And there’s cats, lots and lots of cats.

 

And sometimes snow.

 

Now, you would think that the fact that there isn’t any kind of story or plot involved would make it difficult to write any kind of fanfics for this source material – but the Internet will always find a way! The characters are blank canvases that authors can project whatever they want onto. There’s fanart and fanfics and forums where people discuss their OTPs, the whole nine yards. The summary for this particular fic is fairly straightforward;

pepper tries to get patches and ginger together

Not very informative, but still – more straightforward than many summaries I’ve read.

To the fic!

1701: Panic! In the Host Club – Chapter 3

Hello, dear Patrons, and welcome to the last chapter!

Not a lot happened in the last chapter; Sousuke was added to the host club’s line-up, despite his utter inexperience with girls and the fact that he is painfully awkward around them. And for some reason, girls are paying hundreds of dollars to sit with a socially awkward boy who can barely speak to them despite the fact that they could probably go down to the Manga Club and do that for free.

This chapter is titled “Operation: MATCHMAKER“, which sounds like Tamaki-senpai is going to hatch another crazy scheme.

But first – the Author’s Note!

nothing to say here…no witty remarks or anything just the story

Huh. That’s not all that bad. They are right about the lack of witty remarks, though – and I’m still waiting for the story to appear.

Hello, dear Patrons!

Welcome to the second chapter of this short little fic that, thus far, hasn’t really done much. In the first chapter, Kaname arrived at Ouran with Sousuke not far behind. In what was probably their first class, Sousuke assaulted Tamaki-senpai which – for some reason – made Tamaki-senpai insist that Sousuke join the host club. Sousuke – also for no apparent reason – decided to agree to join even though he probably doesn’t understand what is going on.

Now to the next chapter, which is titled The hosts. It’s possible that it’s going to be a chapter introducing the various hosts, but that’s just my theory.

Hello, dear Patrons!

I’m here with a very short three-chapter fic that is a crossover (because I loves me some crossovers) between a source material I’ve covered before – Ouran High School Host Club – and a new source material that we haven’t featured in the Library before – Full Metal Panic! – so I’m only going to give a synopsis for FMP!.

:cracks knuckles:

Prepare yourselves for a SC-style infodump, Patrons!

The series follows Sousuke Sagara, a teen-aged former child soldier recruited by a private military organization called MITHRIL. Sousuke’s behaviour is extremely regimented at times and he’s what might charitably be called a bit of a stoic.

sousuke-gun

This is his happy face. Also his sad face. Pretty much his only face.

He’s the pilot of a large battle mecha known as an ArmSlave.

arbalest

This one is his, it is called Arbalest.

While Sousuke is a very efficient soldier, having lived with various military organisations since he was eight means he doesn’t do very well in social situations and that he has no idea how to be a regular teen-aged boy.

sousuke-canteen

This is technically true, but that’s not the item’s intended use.

Hello, dear Patrons!

Work has been super-hectic lately so I took the easy way out this week and decided to take the town bicycle of fanfiction out for a spin.

That’s right – this is a Twilight fic!

And, in following the tradition of truly terrible Twilight fics, in some sections it is barely readable. Let me show you the summary.

When Alice see’s some one from edwards past come back to see him and he flea’s. Will bella be in truble when she befriends the enimy? Will edward’s runing put bella in danger?

Yeah … This is going to be rough. But onward to glory!

Hello, dear Patrons!

I’m here with another oneshot that continues my journey through the weirdness that is Crossover Country. This particular fic is listed as a crossover between the 2000 film Dinosaur (a film about an Iguanadon raised by lemurs) and the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, but then there’s this in the summary;

this Story is a Triple Crossover with Aladar, Toothless, Hiccup, and Sheldon. But when Sheldon pulls the Biggest Prank, All of the Four Characters gets Electrocuted, and were Send to Somewhere.

The fic is actually a triple crossover! Because trying to reconcile multiple disparate canons always works out so well. Aladar is the main character from Dinosaur and Hiccup and Toothless are from HTTYD, but I have no idea who Sheldon is. Must be an OC or someone from the unknown third canon.

Also, it looks like the author was visited by Ike the Italics Demon’s cousin Randall The Random Capitalization Imp.

Hey guys I’m back from Thanksgiving Break, and I hope You like this Story, and I’ll see you next time.

Well, that’s certainly pertinent information for me to have now, at the end of January, well after any holiday breaks would have occurred.

*yawns and opens eyes, waking up outside Lyle’s office. Suddenly, her eyes widen*

IT’S CHRISTMAS, MOTHERFUCKERS.

*goes to desk and pulls out presents from under it, starts delivering*

Here you go, Hiraani!

Hiraani: Shit! A copy of Fountainhead! Thanks!

Here you go, Jeffrey!

Jeffrey: This is literally an empty pickle jar, but thanks anyway.

*hands Lyle a Toy Story toy phone and an anvil*

Lyle: I’m totally incorporating this into my next riff. *scurries*

I’m afraid.

*hands Auntie Vodka a pack of Oreos*

Auntie Vodka: I wanted meat.

Well, hopefully Santa brought some.

Auntie Vodka: Santa is dead and so is your dad.

Your brother?

Auntie Vodka: They’re the same person.

And I suppose I’ll deliver the rest of the presents as the comments roll in. But for now, since it’s Christmas, I decided I would attempt to tackle The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t by BreezyWheezy07.

This is not the worst crossover out there, but it’s pretty fucking stupid. Here we have Sharpay Evans…saving Christmas? I think that’s what I’m supposed to understand.

But since I’m in the Christmas mood, I’ll let Hiraani and Jeffrey riff with me!

Hiraani: Dibs on the quotation marks!

Jeffrey: Asshole.

“You snooze, you lose.”

Without further ado, let’s dive into…The Chri—I thought you were gonna say it with me.

“Oh, oops.”

Jeffrey: Ah, fuck.

Okay. One. Two. Three.

All: The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t!
