Author has written 2 stories for Chuck, and Harry Potter.

Hello friends, thanks for stopping by.

I stumbled upon fanfiction several years ago, and it has been a consistent source of entertainment in my life. My first engagement was with Chuck, a television show with a great story--but with many flaws in its telling. My second engagement is with Harry Potter, a story that is somewhat standard but is masterfully told (especially in world-building).

My pseudonym is quite indicative of the types of stories I will tell. The prince of paradox is certainly a hero of mine.

Many Thanks,

Chesterton

Chuck vs A New Day by WillieGarvin reviews
A/U story. What if Chuck and Sarah were a couple from the very beginning? How would that change the evolution of the stories? Here's my take on answering those questions. This story is, internally, broken up into arcs which (sort of, mostly) conform to episodes of the show. There's a rough table of contents on my profile page. Reading them in order is suggested.

Melting the Ice by theoneandonly99 reviews
When the Goblet chose him to be the fourth Champion, Harry's world was turned upside down. Ron hated him, Hermione ignored him, and the entire Hogwarts believed him to be a cheater. That is, if you don't count in a certain Slytherin. Slowburn.

Delacour Godparents by Danielarrowsmith reviews
A very feel-good AU where the Delacours were named Harry's Godparents alongside Sirius. How will this impact Harry? Read on for my interpretation.
