''[[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=179468 Shadow of Zero]]'' by Mizuki_Stone ([[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6641915/1/Shadow_of_Zero also available at Fanfiction.net]]) is a crossover fanfic between ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''. Also has a concurrently written sequel set during the Fifth Grail War.

Levethix’Moxt, serpent king in the guise of a drow, was on the wrong end of a manhunt when a green portal appeared before him and he decided to take possible death over guaranteed death. On the other end, Louise Vallière finds that she has apparently summoned an elf. It is a new world for both and things are going to be quite unusual.

Partway through the story, the author decided to make a rewrite, ''[[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=213355 In the Shadow of Zero]]'', ([[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6807068/1/ also now at Fanfiction.net]]) declaring that he had written himself into a corner with certain events in the first take. Please kindly separate the tropes according to the headers below. Also has a sequel, featuring Lev in VisualNovel/FateStayNight, [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/dissonance-record-path-g-part-5.223104/ Dissonance Record: Path G]]

!! Tropes applicable to both:
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Drow, Dark Elves, and Chromatic Dragons. Though the latter is explained in story as being largely due to the fact that during their formative years, dragons only have their genetic memories to base their moral compasses on. And if the parents are evil...
* BadassBookworm: Wizard[[PuntuatedForEmpasis .]] Dragon. And his Wizard Spells reach the Fifth Level. For reference, that means that he's at least tenth level in Wizard which is about the level where people ''all across the country'' know that you know your shit.
* BewaretheNiceOnes: Lev really prefers to sit around and study, and to deal with problems by talking. Piss him off, and prepare for a reminder that he is a freaking dragon.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Both plays at this as his "Mortal Guise" is a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil DROW]], but is also this since his actual species is a Chromatic Dragon, specifically a Shadow Dragon.
* NiceToTheWaiter: Lev to Siesta.
* OhCrap: The common reaction to seeing Lev, due to the Literature/{{Fear And Loathing| In Las Vegas}} of elves, even without him using his aura of terror. When he first appears in Halkenginia, he wonders if he had accidentally let it free due to this.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: While he comes from Ferun, thus 3.0/3.5 TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons, he's a Shadow Dragon, thus not one of the types normally talked about.

!! Tropes applicable only to ''Shadow'':

* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler: Mott and the demons.]]
* [[spoiler: TheLegionsOfHell]]

!! Tropes applicable only to ''In the Shadow'':

* BilingualBonus: Levethix'Moxt (Little Wizard) is named and occasionally speaks or thinks in Draconic. Translations available [[http://draconic.twilightrealm.com/ here]].
* DramaticWind: Lev invokes this with a cantrip when he introduces himself.
* LargeHam: Lev is most definitely this, even lampshading the fact. “I’m a spontaneous spellcaster! Ham flows in my veins like blood!”
* SupernaturalFearInducer: In addition to the regualar draconic presence, he also has [[UpToEleven grafted onto it]] an Aura Of Terror.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Played with. Assuring someone that you don't want to eat them while ''not'' in the shape of a dragon might just be a bad idea, Lev
** He also knows the ''exact'' location, size, and ''color'' of a book containing ''ritual sex magic''. [[BlatantLies Not that he'd have ever read something like that]].
