Welcome to my humble abode on FanFiction. Enjoy your stay. Pool's open; water's fine.
- Please do not anticipate fast updates at this point in time. I have a life outside of the site. I am never happy when I am forced to delay updating by months and even years, but I have a need to eat most days, so that takes precedent. If you are here to see notes on the rewrite of Double Jeopardy, please read below.-
- Throes of Fate: Chapter 15 - working on it. Almost there.
- Harry, of House Potter: Chapter 10, "Harry IV" - 3000 words. I'm throwing my hands up in frustration here. I want to read the next book before I continue with this, but I'd rather not wait until I have children and then grandchildren before updating the story. Hopefully George can appease us by releasing TWOW in the near future, though I shan't hold my breath.
Brothers in Blood - The Rewrite of Double Jeopardy
This will become the primary version of the story when uploaded. To simplify things: Brothers in Blood is a scene-for-scene rewrite of Double Jeopardy. It will be published when I have caught up with where Double Jeopardy left off and then some. I am currently at chapter twenty-five of thirty-two, although there have been new chapters added to account for the changes I have made.
Ultimately, the reason for this is that Double Jeopardy bears many of the hallmarks of my teenage mind, for I was fifteen when I started to write it. In other words, it is an unpolished, sloppy mess in large part. If you are new to my writing and like the idea of the story, I strongly encourage you to wait for Brothers in Blood to be published, rather than read Double Jeopardy. It will be kept on the site only for the sake of posterity and will not be completed as Brothers in Blood will be.
With this rewrite, the characters have some meat to them, the dialogue has some snap to it and the world has some additional structure. All of these elements were in place with the original story, but did not reach the heights that I envisioned. Again, I was young when I started to write Double Jeopardy, so my skills were far lesser than they are today.
Brothers in Blood represents the final draft of the story as I intended it. The fic itself is not complete, but I will update frequently in order to post the entire thing at a reasonable pace once it is. I will also update Double Jeopardy with some information on this, so that older readers may make the transition if they wish to. I do not have a date in mind for completion, but keep your eye out over the coming months. Lockdown has given me an abundance of writing time.
On a general note, I am going to give you all one and only one warning: this story is dark. It explores the grim reality of war that Paolini touched upon (but did not delve into). Our characters are people, so they will not escape unscathed. Expect death, injury and an overall sense of battle horror. Ancient and/or medieval warfare was not Paolini’s forte, but it is mine. I am not going to shy away from the grit and devastation of violence in this setting, nor have I given all of the characters their canonical fates. Some may die and others may be maimed. However, I am not a sadist, so this isn’t going to be wall-to-wall bleakness; I have done my best to maintain tonal balance. Other characters will live. There is humour, love and friendship too. Unfortunately, in war, these elements can be at risk. If that is not your cup of tea, you may find some of the darker elements of this tale difficult to stomach. I am not going to listen to complaints on this because you are being warned beforehand. I don't get paid for this.
However, the night is darkest just before the dawn. I promise that Brothers in Blood isn’t going to depress you, as such. I don’t write things that are soulless, else I would take no joy in doing so.
If you are curious about another of my stories not listed above, assume that it is dead.
That's the end of the important stuff. Everything below is spontaneous insanity.

My Musings on FanFiction:
- I firmly believe that authors control any story they publish, so don't expect mine to be 100% loyal to its canon counterpart (or counterparts, if it's a cross-over). Like all of my stories, it may follow the original plot of the text up to a certain point, but I'll feel free to change some things around when it's appropriate and even when it's not. Otherwise, I wouldn't have anything to write in the first place.
- Don't be overwhelmed by criticism, because that is the only true way an author can grow. I will not suffer the presence of trolls, but genuine feedback is always appreciated.
- Ronald Weasley, Molly Weasley and Ginny Weasley are all terrible people (in my opinion, of course). Please do not come near me with a story that portrays these bottom-feeding reptilian leeches positively unless you're an author with the skill level of S'Tarkan or Dethryl (and I doubt you are, to be honest). Ron, in particular, might be the most detestable person in canon, ahead of Voldemort. Snape and Dumbledore are also right up there on my shit list, although authors with the correct tenacity can redeem them to a certain extent, even if they do endorse child abuse in canon.
- Popularity on this site does not reflect the quality of a story or the skill of a writer.
- Ignore flames. Laugh at trolls. It's the easy thing to do.
- If a character is a scumbag, that does not mean the writer is. None of mine are (I hope), but I've seen others get slammed for this. It's sad on the part of the reviewer to conflate a character with an author. George R.R. Martin writes some of the most despicable people in fictional history, but is not one of them himself.
- People who unironically write Mpreg stories are dangers to society and probably have to stay fifty feet away from their local schools at all times. There's something wrong with the deranged nutjobs who normalise this type of degeneracy and I mean that with every fibre of my being.
Nyos - A captain of the Imperial soldiers. A magician, loudmouth and somewhat crass man with a soft spot for his family. Based on a combination of Titus Pullo and Lucius Vorenus from HBO's Rome, including a physical appearance matching that of the former. This series is fantastic, by the way. Soldiering mentality borrowed from Lucius Cornelius Macro in Simon Scarrow's Eagles of the Empire series, which I also highly recommend. Appears in Double Jeopardy, my Harry Potter/Inheritance Cycle crossover. Will appear in the rewrite, Brothers in Blood.
Arucane - A dragon born from the green egg in Galbatorix's possession. Decidedly nothing like Fírnen in Paolini's canon series, due to the influence of his Rider, Harry Potter. Skittish, playful and good-humoured as a hatchling. What he grows into remains to be seen. Appears in Double Jeopardy. Will appear in the rewrite, Brothers in Blood.
Joy - A young woman who was prepared to accept the role of prostitute in order to earn money, but is then convinced not to by Harry, head of House Potter. Decides to accompany him and Lord Stark to King's Landing and learn to work as a personal assistant, but remains something of a mystery. Appears in Harry, of House Potter.
Unknown - Eragon's love interest. Appears to be known by Galadriel, but not by Eragon or Saphira. Is she an OC, or am I being evil towards my readers? All will be unveiled soon. Appears in Throes of Fate... eventually.
My Favourite Sentence Ever:
"The Archimandrite Luseferous, warrior priest of the Starveling Cult of Leseum9 IV and effective ruler of one hundred and seventeen stellar systems, forty-plus inhabited planets, numerous significant artificial immobile habitats and many hundreds of thousands of civilian capital ships, who was Executive High Admiral of the Shroud Wing Squadron of the Four-Hundred-and-Sixty-Eight Ambient Fleet (Det.) and who had once been Triumvirate Rotational human/non-human Representative for Cluster Epiphany Five at the Supreme Galactic Assembly, in the days before the latest ongoing Chaos and the last, fading rumbles of the Disconnect Cascade, had some years ago caused the head of his once-greatest enemy, the rebel chief Stinausin, to be struck from his shoulders, attached without delay to a long-term life-support mechanism and then hung upside down from the ceiling of his hugely impressive study in the outer wall of Sheer Citadel - with its view over Junch City and Faraby Bay towards the hazy vertical slot that was Force Gap - so that the Archimandrite could, when the mood struck him, which was fairly frequently, use his old adversary's head as a punchball." - Iain M. Banks, The Algebraist
