Author has written 19 stories for Harry Potter, Death Note, Naruto, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Pillars of the Earth, and Code Geass.

Name: Gaerdir Ainian Tanthaldal

Age: Unknown. It is rumored that he comes from the very sands of time...

Appearance: Coal black skin, pure white hair, glowing red eyes. Often seen in assorted clothing, cannot be used for positive identification, however.

Nickname: Goes by Gaerdir, Ainian, or Tantha. Doesn't like the last one much though.

Daylights as a: FanFiction reader

Moonlights as a: FanFiction writer

Previous Occupations: Also unknown. Although descriptions of a similar man have popped up over the centuries, playing key roles from the shadows, Gaerdir claims to be a humble man charged by his destiny to put pen to paper and narrate the stories told to him. His appearance does detract from his claim to be a human...

Status: He has been deemed an A-level threat, but has been declared a subject that is discussed on a need-to-know basis. As of now, he is currently working for the higher-ups, and appreciates any support towards his work.

  6. A Twilight Struggle: Based on the earlier-published Vanishing Victory. Harry returns from a self-imposed exile at the outskirts of Wizarding society and takes control of an organization he founded years before to combat an old evil. The title comes from JFK's inauguration speech.
