Recalling how excited you were after I told you that I'm working on a LWA fanfic series which titled Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard that has a lot of Norse Mythology and even more magical girl elements long ago, would you like to be the beta reader of my said fanfic? Normally I had Navid 1600 to do the job but due to him busy on a thing or two, he's not always noticing my message that simply having one beta reader is not enough.
The progress of my fanfic series so far:
One shot prequel for the series, Promise to Meet Again, has been completed. You can read it at either Archiveofourown site (here) or Little Witch Academia Fanon Wiki site (here).
The series' first entry, The Rise of Luna Nova Valkyrie, has been started and still ongoing (it has completed 6 chapter so far and currently I'm working on the 7th). You can read it at either Archiveofourown site (here) or Little Witch Academia Fanon Wiki site (here).
Whether you wanted to become a beta reader for my fic is up to you, buddy. Oh, and each time I managed to finish a chapter/story, I'll send you the link at which you can read it to see whether its story remain consistent and to check on errors that I overlooked. But remember, make sure you have read previous story/chapter to keep up with the series!
Well, there are few things to know about my fanfic series, Thebestedrduh1, since you not familiar with its expanded lore:
A. My fanfic series' title is Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard, and it set after second cour of Little Witch Academia anime in alternate universe called Midgard where Norse mythology confirmed to be real and Nine Olde Witches reputed as goddess-like figures through their actions in ensuring humanity's survival during Ragnarok, Great War between Norse Gods and Jotnar aside preventing the decay of magic forces in the world and founded Luna Nova. The said War takes place between Middle Ages and Golden Age of Magic. Other key differences aside are:
Bernadette Cavendish: Bernadette is a former Valkyrie (elite witch warrior themed after mythological figures of same name) under title Eir the Ice Sword Valkyrie who secretly passed her armor and title to her daughter Diana and had arranged so Diana can begun her training when she reached 14 under the titulege of Pongo before her death.
Ursula Callistis aka. Chariot du Nord and Atsuko Kagari: Not long after her separation with Croix after the latter revealed the effect of Dream Fuel Spirit, the lonely Chariot met young Akko who crying due to lost her parents in the crowd. She comforted Akko with a simple magic trick to cheer up Akko, getting her to stop crying just as Akko's parents find them and thank Chariot for finding her. Before she went home with her parents, the young Akko promised to Chariot that they will meet again someday, a promise that neither of them remember until much later in the events of Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard.
Akko's impressive skill with bows and arrow is explained due to her family, Kagari family, excels in archery techniques known as Kagari Archery Style which has been passed through generation, which includes technique to shoot arrows rapidly.
Ursula's martial arts skills is explained due to her being partly groomed as successor of Geirdriful the Sky Valkyrie title, and well-respected by Thapoli as the strongest Valkyrie in spite of her bad reputation as a witch.
Akko and Ursula are revealed to be related as niece and aunt, as Akko's mother, Yumi Kagari, is actually Ursula's long lost older sister named Elizabeth du Nord. Also, Ursula aka. Chariot and her sister Elizabeth confirmed to be born from non-magical family, but the former's high aptitude in magic led to both of them and Akko implied to be actually descendant of legendary mysterious witch from Scandinavia known as "The Last Shadow".
Miranda Holbrooke: Miranda Holbrooke is the a veteran Valkyrie and previous bearer of Geirdriful title.
Sucy Manbavaran's family: Sucy's background and family combines aspects from both Teri Terio manga and Satou Keisuke manga. Here, she lived alongside her biological family alongside her mother Mrs. Manbavaran and siblings (which includes Garie and Sabi). Also, in this fanfic series, Ramzan Manbavaran is Sucy's biological aunt and older sister of Mrs. Manbavaran who run an orphanage at their home Mamba Islands, Southeast Asia.
Amanda O'Neill: Amanda revealed to has a late step-cousin named Clarisse, the valkyrie who known as Marmora the Blade Storm Valkyrie. In their youths, they were very close with Clarisse taught Amanda many things about magic and often criticizes her about her rebellious behavior. Before her death, Clarisse was attempted to solve the mystery behind phrase "Franang's Falls" and passed both the quest and her armor to Amanda. The quest for Franang's Fall is the plot point of the series.
Jasminka and her Fairy Beast: The version of fairy beast who Jasminka accidently eat when she was young is much more powerful, as it possesses quite reputation in magical world and even endowed Jasminka unique powers that transformed her left arm before finally leaving her for good.
Molly McIntyre: Molly revealed to be the last living member of McIntyre family alongside her late cousin Ragnhild. She greatly admired Ragnhild, the Rota the Spected Valkyrie, and aspired to be like her. Her determination to be like her said cousin is the additional driving force for her to improved her initially poor magic aside living a happy life at Luna Nova which unfortunately, led to her meddling with time magic of Horologium, which resulted her afflicted with Curse of Time for two centuries until freed by Akko and co.
B. There are some more elements of magical girl and actions, as in this fanfic, Akko and some of her friends can transform into mystical armor-clad witches called Valkyries. About Valkyries, you can read them here. The armor can glow in bright green accent in similar manner with costumes worn by programs and users alike in Disney's TRON series.
C. There are a lot of OC characters & locations ahead.
I even have discussed and receiving some advices from user named Navid 1600, but he seemed busy that the last time I contacted him was around 5 days ago.
Do you found Akko and Ursula aka. Chariot's bond being the most heartwarming aspect in Little Witch Academia Anime? And would you also felt the same way when one day, Akko and Ursula met a troubled mother/father and daughter whose life parallel with theirs in many ways that the teacher and student decided to do the best in reconciling them somehow?
Have you ever heard the term about child soldiers and what do you think about it?
Oh, and even though my LWA fanfic has more magical girl element with Akko can transform into Fire Valkyrie Kara, don't expect her transformation sequence is like in typical magical girl anime, as her transformation sequence is more like in gif image on the side.
I think she would be grateful, of course, but knowing her, she would get really mad about it. She would of wanted Chariot to keep her powers so she could thrive, implying that she would give up her power just so Chariot could have hers.
