Author has written 4 stories for Van Helsing.
I am not back-for I was never gone entirely. I will continue to update when the muse strikes...or when I'm able to catch the plot bunnies.
Avatar is "In thoughts of you" by Jack Vettriano. Tweaking of the pic was done by Remember.

The link for "Concerto in blue"
Maksim Mrvica "Poseidon's Tale"
The links for "Last Waltz"
Chapter 1 ("A night at the opera")
This is the song that Cordelia sings at the beginning of the story, "Meine Lippen küssen so heiß" by Lehar. This is another link than posted in the chapter, as that one has been deleted.
Chapter 3 ("Thursday’s charms")
Offenbach's Barcarolle, the song Cordelia and Cassandra sing together, can be found here.
There is another version of the song with the voices that I imagine Cordelia and Cassie would have, though it's not very good quality.
Chapter 5 ("Saturday's dances")
The song which is playing when the women make their entrance is "Explosive" by Bond.
This is the waltz of Cassie and Damien "Anniversary Waltz" written by Strauss.
The waltz the Count and Tess are dancing is the "Second Waltz" from Shostakovich.
Here is a picture of Cassandras hairstyle. Scroll all the way down and then it's the third picture from below.
I’m sorry but the waltz Cassie and the Count are doing isn’t on youtube. As described it’s the "Coronation Waltz" from Mancini. You can hear a short sample of it here.
Chapter 6 ("Special delivery")
The song Cassandra is playing on the piano is the 3rd movement of Brahms' Piano Concerto Op. 15 No.1 in d minor. The first part of it can be heard here.
Chapter 7 ("Written words")
The song that is playing while the Count reads Cassies first letter is Lully's "Te deum" (Symphonie) and can be found here.
Lully's "Isis" is the second piece in the chapter and you can listen to it here.
Chapter 8 ("An afternoon with Tess")
The music Tess is listening to is from the movie "Amelie" and can be found here.
Chapter 10 ("48 hours")
This is the song Nefer is playing before the appointment with the Count. The original is by Vonda Shephard, but this is the only version I was able to link.
Chapter 11 ("Rendezvous")
The dress Cassie is wearing is this one.
Here you'll find a scene of the ballet "Beauty and the Beast".
The little statuette can be found here.
