Awesome Fanfic Funny Heartwarming YMMV
Child Of The Storm
A story that started on a What If? In this case, what would happen if Thor had been incarnated as James Potter, as a first run on that humility thing and had died doing it, going mad with grief in a form of
Gone Horribly Right
Gone Horribly Wrong
, and Odin had had to wipe his memories.
So far, the answer appears to be a world of strange hijinks,
lots of badassery
, evil plots,
Loads and Loads of Characters
, creepy super zombies and Loki's incredible coffee making skills.
Manages to take a Mary Suish premise and turn it into something (so far) pretty good. Notable for its
worldbuilding and constant hints by
Word of God
that he has the entire series mapped out.
Absurdly Youthful Mother: Lily Potter, as per canon. Also, possibly, Wanda Maximoff, though she may have some kind of retarded ageing like Doctor Strange. Action Dad: Thor. Action Girl: Natasha and Darcy. Carol Danvers has also shown signs of this. Adaptation Expansion: Most definitely. Related to the Alternate Universe entry below. Alternate Universe: Word of God says that this won't be just a simple crossover, it'll be a new universe entirely. So far, he's not wrong. Arch-Nemesis: Voldemort to Harry, Thor and Loki (or rather, the first two. Loki vows eternal suffering on Voldemort because of what he did to his brother and nephew). Malfoy to Fury. He took Fury's eye, Fury snapped his wand, give him a limp and burned down his house. Author Appeal: the Sleep Cute and Badass Family tropes appear in other works by the same author. Author Filibuster / Anvilicious: occasionally takes on hints of this in response to assertions of wizarding power, in very pointedly (both in story and in notes) noting Wizarding flaws - an undeserved societal superiority complex. limited power and, as a rule, a severe inability to come to terms with anything outside their frame of reference, but carefully avoids it. Badass Bait and Switch Big Brother Instinct: Thor to Loki, and surprisingly, Clint to Harry. Big Good: Dumbledore (for the Wizarding World), Nick Fury (for the rest of the world) and Odin. Black Eyes of Evil: the veidrdraugar. Very much so. Bullying a Dragon: As Krieger finds out when dealing with T'Challa, this is a very bad idea. Buxom Is Better: Averted as regards Carol. While buxom for her age and Younger Than Shelooks, she finds it rather wearing. Byronic Hero: Loki. Camp Gay: Jean-Paul Beaubier, to an extent. Very gay and very open about it, with some camp mannerisms, but purposefully not a stereotype. Character Development: Thor and James Potter are essentially blended together. Harry slowly begins to adjust to his new status and assert it. Chivalrous Pervert: Jean-Paul. Happily flirts with Harry, but backs off immediately and apologises when he sees that Harry's a little bothered by being hit on. Complete Monster: Gravemoss. Continuity Porn / Shown Their Work: one of the main villains is a reworking of a minor villain from an Excalibur comic in the Nineties. This should give you an idea. Cool Uncle: Tony, with an added dose of pure crazy thrown in. The other male Avengers largely qualify. Cuteness Proximity: Harry is very good at this. Deconstruction Crossover: elements are beginning to emerge. Deadpan Snarker: Everyone, at points, though Loki, Tony and Darcy reign supreme. Disappeared Dad: Thor. Very definitely not by choice. Disc One Final Boss: Lucius Malfoy. The Dragon: Gravemoss and the Winter Soldier are Co-Dragons to Lucius. Baron Von Strucker is probably supposed to be a third, but he really hasn't got any screen time. The Dreaded: the veidrdraugar. Since they nearly have so far lived up to the hype, they fit this trope very neatly. wiped out the Asgardians in the distant past, their mere mention terrifies Loki (and for good reason) and Odin went to great pains to obliterate them so thoroughly that all that remains are nursery rhymes and rumours and Early-Bird Cameo: Full of these, usually via an offhand reference. So far, we've had: Reed Richards and Susan Storm Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne J. Jonah Jameson and Marla Jameson Mattie Franklin T'Challa Coulson and his team Charles Xavier and Hank Mc Coy Sebastian Shaw Wanda Maximoff Magneto John Constantine Doctor Strange Harry Dresden Gwen Stacy Peter Parker Flash Thompson The Kent family (who Clint is related to by his mother's adoption) And many, many more. Everyone Can See It: Loki/Sif. Even Fandral can see it. Everyone Is Related: Harry is second cousin to Jean Grey. Clint is Minerva . Mc Gonagall and Bucky Barnes' grandson and related to the Kent family by his mother's adoption On a non-biological level, Charles Xavier is Tony's godfather and Nick Fury was Lily's surrogate big brother. Evil Albino: Gravemoss. Expospeak Gag Famed in Story: Aside from the obvious, the Winter Soldier. Five-Bad Band: Five-Man Band: : played horrifically straight. Flesh Eating Zombies Foreshadowing: Bucketloads of it. We've so far got Harry's blood connection to Jean Grey, Charles Xavier and Beast having an interest in him, Wanda Maximoff and John Constantine having a child, the voice in Draco Malfoy's head, the references to Magneto... Getting Crap Past the Radar: an in-universe example - Fandral alludes to Sif and Thor having got it on in the past in front of Harry, with suggestive references to moaning. Sif nuts him and knocks him out cold before he can finish. Genre Savvy: Darcy in particular. God of War: Sif. Her viewpoint section in chapter 29 suggests that she has a fair few abilities to go with it. Good Is Really Scary When It Wants To Be: Loki. Oh my god, Loki. Gory Discretion Shot: occasionally used. Occasionally not. Guile Hero: Loki, Fury, Natasha, Dumbledore. Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Thor. Carol Danvers. Gwen Stacy. Half-Human Hybrid: Harry. The entire premise of the story, in some respects. He hasn't exhibited any powers from his dad's side. Yet. Word of God hints that they'll be revealed soon-ish. Word of God also has an interesting concept of 'soon-ish', so it could be a while. Harem: explicitly, repeatedly and emphatically nixed by Word of God. Heterosexual Life-Partners: Bruce and Remus are going this way. Sciencebros. The Avengers as a whole. Hot Witch: Lily Potter, Wanda Maximoff. I Have Many Names: the Winter Soldier. Instant Expert: pointedly averted with Harry. Played straight with Sif, in regard to weapons, apparently, thanks to being a God of War. Jesus Taboo: Averted and played straight. Jesus does exist, yes, and he is the son of God, but God is simply a very powerful Skyfather/Elder God. And he hasn't, and probably won't, appear. Jesus Was Way Cool: According to Thor and Loki. Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Snape. Kick the Dog: Gravemoss. Knight Of Cerebrus: Gravemoss, though he appears before the Wham Episode. Up until chapter 21, the fic was a moderately serious family fic with some appropriately evil villains. Then he happened. Lady of Black Magic: Wanda Maximoff. Lady of War: Sif. Quite literally. The Lancer: Loki's specific purpose in relation to Thor, as appointed by Odin. He rather enjoys it. Lemony Narrator: Part of the Author's Signature Style and source of much of the humour. Loads and Loads of Characters: So far, the main casts from both The Avengers and Harry Potter, a good portion of X-Men and other Marvel groups. Mad Scientist: Tony, occasionally. Usually for Rule of Funny purposes, but never OOC. The Magic Comes Back: elements of this - mutants are appearing (off screen, by and large), ancient monsters are being resurrected by dark magic, a demigod Prince walks the Earth once more and the most ancient and deadly book of dark magic has been taken from its vault. Magnetic Hero: Loki notes this about Harry, Thor and Steve. Magnificent Bastard: Loki, Odin, Fury, Lucius. Manipulative Bastard: Loki. Mega Crossover: while primarily an HP/Avengers crossover, there are elements of numerous fandoms sprinkled in. Word of God explains it like a cake - the cake is the Avengers, the filling is the HP verse, and the frosting/sprinkles are other fandoms. Muggles Do It Better: the author takes pains to point out just how useless Wizards generally when dealing with something outside their frame of reference, noting the Medieval Stasis of the Wizarding World. Myth Arc: There is one and Word of God says that it is going to be enormous. Nightmare Fetishist: Gravemoss. Noodle Incident: Apparently, Thor and the National Grid do not mix. Obfuscating Insanity: one interpretation of Tony's antics. Oh Crap: the general reaction to the . veidrdraugar A small one by Amora when she realises that Thor now Would Hit a Girl - due to his past as James where he fought plenty of female Death Eaters. Old Flame: Amora to Thor. She wants to renew it, he regards it as one of the biggest mistakes he ever made. And tells her. To her face. Our Zombies Are Different: very much so. Papa Wolf: '''THOR''' (in reference to the Enchantress)
: If she had touched Lily, I would have killed her. If she touches Harry, I will kill her and if
tries to stop me, I'll ram that precious axe of his up his sorely whipped arse.
Loki, though it's more Uncle Wolf. Odin to Loki, big time, judging by his rage at what Thanos did to him. It wasn't mind control, but it wasn't exactly pleasant for Loki either... Physical God: Thor. Loki. Asgardians in general. Hulk. The referenced Juggernaut and Count Nefaria. Power Of The Storm: Thor Storm of the X-Men, though she's only been mentioned. Really 700 Years Old: Asgardians, Gravemoss, the Flamels and, on a smaller scale, Natasha and the Winter Soldier. Reasonable Authority Figure: Nick Fury, Dumbledore, Odin, Loki and General O'Neill. Red Eyes, Take Warning: Gravemoss. Reformed But Not Tamed: repeatedly quoted in reference to Loki. Royals Who Actually Do Something: the Asgardian royal family. Running Gag: Thor's arch enemy: the microwave. Scary Black Man: Nick Fury. T'Challa, if you piss him off. Sealed Evil in a Can: the Winter Soldier, natch. Shipper on Deck: Fandral for Sif/Loki. Ship Tease: Clint and Natasha. Specifically averted with Harry and Carol. Loki and Sif. Sleep Cute: several instances, possibly down to Author Appeal Harry and Thor after their first meeting. Harry, Thor and Loki on the sofa at Avengers Tower - Steve actually puts a blanket over them and sketches a picture. Harry and Thor on the plane back to Hogwarts. A picture from Thor's photo album of him (as James) and a sleeping baby Harry. It is a reference to a work on deviantART, used with the creator's permission. Smarter Than You Look / Obfuscating Stupidity: Darcy explicitly relies on this. No one expects a curvy Pop Cultured brunette to be smart, let alone carry a taser. She is in fact very smart, mostly in a Genre Savvy sort of way. Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Loki is the grandmaster of this. It has been Lampshaded. So Beautiful, It's a Curse / Younger Than They Look: cleverly done with Carol Danvers. Looking like a gorgeous High Schooler/College Student at age 14 is portrayed as very difficult for the girl in question. The Spymaster: Loki and Nick Fury. Statuesque Stunner: Carol Danvers. Stepford Smiler: Harry, to an extent. He seems to have taken everything very well, when, in fact, he's headed for a crash of epic proportions. Take That: Several, usually aimed at fanfiction conventions: The Harem concept is repeatedly mocked. As is Harry immediately developing powers. And so are the large Remus/Sirius and Tony/Steve slash fandoms.
Fury snorted. Like that was ever going to happen.
Tony: *implying Harry may be attracted to Jane and Hermione* His best friend is a brunette brain box. Loki: Who he is about as sexually attracted to as he is to mould. Tall, Dark and Handsome: Thor (as James) Sirius Jean-Paul Beaubier Loki Tall, Dark and Snarky: Loki Technician Versus Performer: According to Word of God, this applies to the rivalry between Harry and Uhtred, where Uhtred is the Technician and Harry is the Performer. Time Abyss: Odin. He's at least a thousand years older than Stonehenge. Trolling Creator: the author was asked repeatedly for Harry's animagus form. The start of Chapter 23 announced that it would be revealed at the end of the chapter. It turned out to be Captain Jack Harkness. Truer To The Text: As compared to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfazed Everyman: Harry. Particularly has shades of this in how quickly he adjusts, though it is implied that his general freak out is merely postponed. This is confirmed by Steve as of chapter 26. The Voiceless: The Winter Soldier. It serves to terrify everyone nearby. Use Your Head: Sif. Knocks out Fandral - who had been in the middle of embarrassing her - this way. In one go. From a seated position. Wham Episode: Chapter 21. Word of God: Present in rather extensive A/N's at the beginning and end of various chapters that serve to clarify and expand points raised in the text.
