Author has written 10 stories for Harry Potter, Batman, Dresden Files, and Castle.
The Wizard and the Writer
Murder is run of the mill to Richard Castle and Detective Kate Beckett. But when their newest case arrives with some intriguing anomalies, they might have to request help from an entirely new kind of expert. Crossover between 'Castle' and 'The Dresden Files', set mid-series 4/post-White Night. Written as a prompt for DLP's Secret Santa 2015.
Once upon a time, three brothers came up with a plan to change the world forever. Centuries later, wizards still fight over the scraps of their power. However, only one person can truly lay claim to their destiny. AU. WIP. Rating T. Ravenclaw!Harry.
Someone at DLP requested a plot recap, which didn't seem unreasonable given that I've only managed sixteen chapters in five years. Spoilers, obviously.
The Potters are attacked at Godric's Hollow. Voldemort tortures James to get him to hand over the Invisibility Cloak - James doesn't know why, but doesn't have it anyway, having lent it to Dumbledore. Dumbledore arrives and fights off Voldemort. The Potters all survive, but Dumbledore performs Memory Charms on them so they don't remember that Voldemort was after the Cloak.
Harry goes off to Hogwarts, having been presented with the Cloak by James. At Halloween, he has the bad luck of bumping into Voldemort, who is trying to break into Dumbledore's office. Again, Dumbledore fights him off.
At the end of Harry's first year, Voldemort tricks Harry into a trap, using him to retrieve the Elder Wand from its hiding place, a cave deep beneath the Great Lake. Before Voldemort can leave, or harm Harry, Dumbledore appears. He takes the Wand back, and uses it to burn off Voldemort's arm. Voldemort escapes. Later, after Dumbledore has obtained the full story from Harry, he alters Harry's memories so that he has no memory of the Wand.
Time skip to post-OWLs.
Harry learns from his parents that Voldemort has started targeting members of the Order (off screen, Dumbledore has decided that given Voldemort's new game plan, the Potters need to know about the Hallows. Harry doesn't know at this stage).
Through a combination of frustration at his unexciting life, desire to spite Draco Malfoy, and recognition of the potential professional benefits, Harry enters the Triwizard Tournament, and is chosen as Champion.
Harry and his friends stop some students from Durmstrang who are bullying Luna, due to her wearing Grindlewald's mark as a necklace. Harry recognises the symbol, but can't place it. When Dumbledore and Karkaroff intervene in the altercation, Dumbledore dismisses the symbol as just a random rune.
Harry takes part in the First Task, having to work his way past a series of obstacles to get back to the castle. Prior to the Task, Remus confirms that the rune Luna was wearing was Grindlewald's mark, and that Dumbledore was lying about its lack of significance.
Harry patches up with Hermione, who he has argued with due to her bad reaction to his Champion status (certainly out of concern for his well being, which he interprets as a lack of respect for his ability, and according to Ron also because she has a crush on him, although Harry doesn't know whether this is actually true).
In the run up to the Yule Ball, Harry asks Lisa Turpin to be his date, and she accepts. The relationship continues after the Ball.
The Second Task. Harry is the only Champion to correctly piece together the clues they were given after the First Task to work out that they will have to fight a Chimera, although it actually turns out that they have to retrieve a sample of its venom so they can brew an antidote to cure respective family members. Harry leads them all to success, although not without being poisoned - having identified the nature of the challenge, he came prepared with a bezoar.
The Archive Riddle:
Voldemort had expected something horrible in the aftermath of the Battle of Hogwarts. Nothing could have prepared him for this. HP/DF crossover.
ABANDONED. I had some big ideas for this. Too big. I'd either have to write an AU so extensive that it would rewrite almost all of the Dresden canon, or half-ass it and have vast levels of fridge logic about why the world hasn't changed at all. Maybe I'll be able to strip it down and work around it, but probably not.
Harry Potter and the Second War: AU
SERIES IS ON HIATUS!
For a while now, I've been pondering this series, and all in all, although I don't think it's entirely without merit, there's a lot about it I don't like. Unfortunately, a lot of what I don't like is in the worldbuilding, the plotting, and the general structure - things that will affect any future installments. There will be no updates for the foreseeable future, but I am giving thought to scrapping the whole thing and doing a rewrite, which would change a lot - for a start, I'd probably cut out the first two stories altogether. Book one was always supposed to have a few chapters covering the events of Harry's life pre-Hogwarts, then his first two years, before covering his third year in more detail, but they rather got away from me, and on reflection I think they're unnecessary.
Essentially though, while there's stuff I want to write for the series, there's an awful lot about it that I don't like. I might be able to find a way of resolving those issues without changing too much about it, but I'm not convinced. Apologies to any fans of the series still waiting for updates.
Harry Potter and the Discworld:
Summary: When Harry Potter miraculously survives the Killing Curse, he attracts the attention and curiosity of Death. As a result, the barriers separating the Roundworld and the Discworld begin to break down, leading to more danger than Harry could ever have imagined… AU, crossover, WIP, Rating T.
Harry Potter: Hero of the Wizarding World?
Summary: An aged Harry reveals the scandalous truth behind his youthful exploits. Read how a lying, womanising coward became the hero of the magical world. Rated M for language and sexual content. AU, WIP, rating M.
BOTH (EFFECTIVELY) ABANDONED
As much fun as Hellinbrand and I had with them, it's hard to co-ordinate to write stories collaboratively when you're living at opposite ends of the country and in full time employment.
