CHARACTER SERIES: The Dresden Files (bookverse AU)


Backtagging: Yes please!
Threadhopping: Sure thing.
Fourthwalling: Depends on the circumstances. Ask first.
Offensive subjects: None at the moment.


Hugging this character: So long as he knows you, sure!
Kissing this character: Harry's in a long-term relationship, so while he might respond at first, he won't appreciate being kissed unless it's Shepard or Liara.
Flirting with this character: Feel free! Harry has somewhat old-fashioned notions about romance though, so he'll be uncomfortable if you persist after hearing he's in a relationship.
Fighting with this character: Ask first, but sure.
Injuring this character: Talk to me about it first, but I am definitely okay with getting him beaten up. Nothing more serious than broken bones please.
Killing this character: Not with this character please.
Using telepathy/mind reading abilities on this character: Non-invasive contact is fine. Anything deeper, and he'll consider you to have broken one of the Laws of Magic. While he's open to stretching the rules, you need to have a damn good reason.

Warnings: Harry is AU as of the end of White Night, ending up in an alternate Chicago and negating Lash's need to sacrifice herself. He's currently living on the SSV Normandy SR-2 (from the videogame Mass Effect), and out of necessity he's given in to using the blackened denarius housing Lasciel, a fallen angel. He'll be freed of her eventually, but for right now, she's along for the ride.

Harry can be played as canon if requested.

Harry's posted himself into [ profile] dear_multiverse, asking about what to do when you find yourself playing for the wrong team. Set at the beginning of Mass Effect 2, after the opening events of the Normandy.
Right. So. Harry's officially out of the Rift and has been for... ah, a while now. Coupla months, I think.

However, Harry's relationship with Shepard has continued on in a private, one-on-one RP in which, at some AU point in the future, everyone got to go back home through the Rift. Only since Harry and Shepard were so close emotionally, aurally, and universally, Harry got caught up in Shepard's wake and ended up on the Normandy on her heels.

Still hammering out the details of when and how this affects the Mass Effect universe, but Harry is entering the timeline sometime between ME and ME2. I've been having some plotbunnies running around for short ficlets dealing with this that I may be posting sometime soon, which will explore possibilities for Harry's involvement in the ME2 plot.

Also, Shepard previously had an existing relationship with Liara T'Soni, so now it's a threesome.

thepizzalord: (In the dark)
Been sketching what Harry/Lasciel's Fallen form might possibly look like, since we were never told in the books. Lasciel is referred to as the Webweaver, so I've been stuck on a spider monster kind of thing. This is what I have so far.

Cut for size )
thepizzalord: (Thinking)
The Lady - Harry hasn't been with a woman in quite some time. Granted, this is mostly because is extremely oblivious as far as flirting goes, sometimes to the point of being almost molested by naked woman and just not getting it. Casual sex is not his goal, however, and anyone that he pursues will be as close to "for keeps" as he can manage.
{[ profile] fightyourfoes/Commander Shepard and [ profile] powerisall/Sonja Caplan}

The Knight - In times of trouble, Harry has often turned to Michael and the other Knights of the Cross for assistance in dealing with matters of darkness. Now, with Lasciel influencing him more heavily than before, it will take someone extremely strong-willed to keep him from allying with the fallen angel. {[ profile] shealone_stands/Buffy Summers}

The Siren - Harry's darker impulses have come out to play more and more often, despite the disapproval of the White Council. If properly directed, he could become a truly unstoppable force, in complete harmony with Lasciel's desires and abilities.
{[ profile] fightyourfoes/Commander Shepard}

The Captain - Without the guidance of the Warden Captain, Harry is unsure of who to follow and what cause to fight for. While he does not appreciate being ordered around, it's damn nice to have a little bit of guidance in the bigger issues of life.
{[ profile] fightyourfoes/Commander Shepard}

The Adversary - Harry is extremely angry that his investigation of the Black Council is no longer possible, but he is sure that someone around here is pulling strings that they shouldn't be. If he finds a traitor, or just someone too morally opposed to him, he will focus on eliminating them almost exclusively. {[ profile] sarkraticmethod/Julian Sark, openings for up to two more characters, preferably male}

The Bartender - Neutral ground is one of Harry's favorite things. While he doesn't have to be best buddies with this person, he needs someone neutral to give him a sense of security in the midst of this new insanity that he finds himself in.
{[ profile] belle_heaven/Rose Tyler Now open for one character}

I'm ultimately planning on having Harry become a full Denarian, if possible. He's definitely not going to be the mostly morally-good character that he is in the books, although it will take some time for Lasciel to corrupt him fully.

  • Name: Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden
  • Birthdate: October 31, 1973
  • Species: Human (Wanderer)
  • -Type: The Fallen angel Lasciel's shadow has become much more integrated with his personality, allowing greater control of Hellfire and slight increases in other Fallen abilities. (More information found here )
  • Canon: The Dresden Files (novels)
  • Played By: Paul Blackthorne
  • Appearance: Six and a half feet tall, lanky build, short dark hair, dark eyes. Often dressed in a black leather duster that is magically protected against most forms of attack, wears a silver pentacle amulet around his neck. His left hand has been severely burned, leaving the entire hand scarred except for a patch of skin on the palm in the shape of Lasciel's sigil, which he covers with a black leather glove.. Carries a Colt .44, blasting rod, and wizard staff as weapons. Carries a shield bracelet as a defense.
  • Personality: Finds it difficult to see women, children, or other innocents come to harm, sometimes to the point of unleashing unholy destruction upon whoever is responsible. Sense of humor that often includes obscure clich├ęs and gallows humor. Forms strong attachments to those he cares about, and can nurse a grudge for years before coming to terms with it. Not very subtle, but very tenacious. Often oblivious when it comes to women hitting on him, but when he does catch on, he plays for keeps. Fully willing to sacrifice himself for what he believes is the greater good, even if it means damning his own soul.
  • History: Orphaned at age six, adopted by a warlock named Justin DuMorne who later tried to enslave him. Harry killed him in self defense, and was then mentored by Ebenezar McCoy, the White Council's Blackstaff, until he was old enough to live alone. Harry spent three years working for a Private Investigations agency before opening his own business, putting himself in the phone book under Wizards. He often became involved in large supernatural occurrences in Chicago , including the beginning of a war against the Red Court of vampires and stopping a war between the two major factions of Faerie. Harry touches a Blackened Denarius to prevent a friend's child from becoming corrupted by it, and as a result a copy of the Fallen angel's personality was implanted in his subconscious, giving him access to Hellfire and a vast store of knowledge. Lasciel spent several years in Harry's mind, slowly influencing him despite his attempts to steer clear of her "help." During a battle at the White Court vampire Raith estate, Harry's escape was cut off, and he was caught in an enormous explosion that catapulted him through the Rift.


  • Writing Sample:

"Oh boy... sit, Ubu, sit!"


The werewolf snarled, obviously unimpressed by the wizard's brightly glowing staff. It crouched low, and before Harry could react it leapt straight at his throat. He fell back with a yelp, and the werewolf overshot its target, one back paw clipping the fallen wizard across the top of the head.


Harry rolled, coming up on his knees, and quickly gathered his will. "Fuego!" he shouted, thrusting the staff towards the beast. An enormous gout of flame burst forth, setting the creature's fur alight, and it howled in pain, blinded by the bright flash. By the time its vision adjusted, Harry was between it and the young girl, who cowered against the crumbling brick wall, blood streaming down her arm.


"No take out for you tonight, buddy!" Harry snarled back at the werewolf, staff ablaze with the eerie red light of Hellfire..
