Author has written 22 stories for Harry Potter, and Dresden Files.

Hello. I hope you enjoy my works, such as they are. Thank you for visiting.

Other accounts of mine spanning the last decade or so:

Sparticustodian: A few one-shots, a foray into ASOIF, and a HP story that while it is incomplete as a grand epic, is complete as a First Year fic, for what that's worth.

Ayogg: Pokemon story. Again, at least it got to a completed arc.

Fox and McCloud: I was McCloud. "Downfall" is my story there. My start at an Ash/Erika fic

Penguin45: Currently writing really niche fandoms in here, more or less for fandoms/pairings that I'm writing because I want to read stories for non-existent ships or fandoms. Includes unironic Spike/Harmony, Animorphs, and AU ASOIF told in poetic (for a loose definition of that term) verse.

Probably a few one-shots floating out there in the aether as well from place to place. If it was written between 2007-2015 by some variant of 'vlad' and involved either Harry and Romilda, Daphne, or Astoria, odds are pretty good it was mine.

8/24/23: Have picked back up Chimera. About 2/5 chapters done for year 2, will publish again once I've got a year complete. Been a good but very busy year!

9/10/23: Penultimate chapter of Gaslighting Hermione is in draft, probably have this story closed out next weekend. Vlad going to complete two multi-chapter stories in one year, will wonders never cease. Then I've either got to finish Year 2 of Chimera or get the other Harry/Romilda story out, which I think will be about the same length as GH but more Harry in character, a sort of how Book 6 really could have gone rather than just running on a gag.

Also going back at long last and editing some of my older stories. Nothing too fancy, just getting rid of spelling and grammar mistakes that I never fixed, and probably changing a few things stylistically as I've vastly improved as an author, but nothing changing materially. Copying stuff over to AO3 as well (as well as making new hard copies for myself).

Finally, going through my older stuff and not pretending 'everything is still active, not abandoned lol'. Here's what I'm thinking.

Chimera: active, need to keep going on this one while the iron's still at least lukewarm.

None Can Live While The Others Survive: I had a big idea but when I think of it nothing really comes to mind that's interesting on the chapter-by-chapter level that I feel thrilled to write. This is a pilot episode that died.

What Would Broz Do?: I really like this series, and I'll just keep it open ended if a good idea comes to me, I'll write it. Otherwise, it's perfectly fine as is for what it is.

Whatever Happened To Bromance: I should have marked this as 'Complete' years ago. Because it is. It has a beginning. It has a (ahem) climax, and it has a conclusion. It's a fantastic smut-with-genuine-plot fic and less-is-more. Great as is.

Rise of the House of Rookwood: Interesting premise, but alas. Doing this one properly would probably take way more time and effort than I can realistically devote, even with a 15 year hiatus to have been totally 'plotting' and 'brainstorming'.

Forced Flight: I haven't read a Dresden book in six years now, I enjoyed my time in the fandom but I'm out of it.

Where it sorta gets interesting now...

For Want of a Wand: I wrote and published the complete arc 1. Then I got a lot of traction in terms of responses and views and I panicked. This was my first real push at a Big Fic, and I was worried I didn't really have the chops to write it. I mean, I'm vlad so the odds of me finishing it were admittedly slim, can't deny that, but more went into stopping writing this fic than just moving on to the next thing. Of anything I've written that's on 'hiatus', I still come back to think and think it deserves some justice.

So the plan is to at least look this over, see what can be rewritten to bring it stylistically up to snuff, and see what I can do for arcs 2 and 3. I still have a good chunk of my notes for this fic, as I was always hesitant to clean them out. That Said, life is life. If it updates, you'll know when the fic updates. And if it does update, then I will guarantee that at least another full arc is ready to roll. I'd really like to finish this fic though, take that for what it's worth.

Serendaphity by Dark-Syaoran reviews
He wasn't sure exactly when it all started. A month ago? Two? Whatever the case may be, at some point it had started and it showed no sign of slowing down. He'd never been friends with a Slytherin before, nor had he ever really tried to be. Until now, apparently.

"Have you found out how to get past that beast of Hagrid's yet?" ...Snape kicks Harry out of 'Remedial Potions', but as we know from The Philosopher's Stone, there is another Occlumens in the school good enough to keep out the Dark Lord. Stupid oneshot.

Gaslighting Hermione reviews
Harry and Romilda absolutely are not having a secret, illicit relationship at Hogwarts. That's ridiculous, and any "evidence" or "proof" of such is just manipulating innocent circumstances arising from Harry's 'saving people thing' in the very worst mimicry of the likes of Skeeter, probably being pushed in a desperate attempt to snare Harry by Romilda herself, that wicked witch.

Chimera: Lion and Snake reviews
Five years ago, Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix overthrew Voldemort's regime, turning the page onto a new Golden Age for Magical Britain. Only Harry hasn't been seen in the country since, until now, and he might be seeking to overthrow the government after an apparent elopement and sabbatical of international vigilante retribution. Or not. That bit's a little unclear.

Gamer Fic reviews
Annoyed at the plethora of gamer fics that create this would-be earth shattering paradigm for the protagonist and then just have it be a lazy way to 'stats go up' as he continues life as otherwise normal. Might be multi-chapter, but can stand alone. Just having some fun.

Dodging Original Content and Stealing Fanverses reviews
One-shots set in LeadVonE's Dodging Prison & Stealing Witches. 'Canon' compliant in the sense they are plausible outcomes or events at time of writing. Not perfect continuity, but everything more or less set in the same 'verse'. Rated M for specific lines, no smut.
