Fanfic / Child of the Storm
by Nimbus Llewelyn
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?
Oh, and after he died, he went mad with grief in a form of Gone Horribly Right
combined with Gone Horribly Wrong
, and Odin had to wipe his memories. Then, those memories were restored by Loki in Harry Potter
's Third Year at Hogwarts.
So far, the answer appears to be a world of strange hijinks, constant snarking
, lots of badassery
, evil plots, Loads and Loads of Characters
, creepy super zombies, an even creepier Necromancer
, and Loki's incredible coffee making skills
Manages to take a Marty Stuish Wish Fulfillment
based premise (Harry gets a Really Royalty Reveal
) and turn it into something (so far) pretty good, largely by exploring the Butterfly Effect
: while Harry is far better protected, loved, and supported, it creates issues that weren't there before, both personally for Harry and on a far grander scale for the rest of the universe. Notable negative repercussions include the deaths of Arthur Weasley and Luna Lovegood.
Notable for its epic World Building
in a fashion somewhat reminiscent of The Last Son
series (but, arguably, far beyond in scale) (which Word of God
has credited as part of the inspiration for the fic), along with SmallvilleX: Evolution
. Also credited are Smallville
and X-Men: Evolution
, in that it takes a similar concept of a young person discovering their powers and the issues that come with them.
In short: A Patchwork Fic
that is both Denser and Wackier
and Darker and Edgier
There are also constant hints by Llewelyn that he has the entire series mapped out. Equally, there are constant hints that he's constantly changing his mind and adding things in at the last minute (like major characters), meaning that it's not uncommon for something definitively stated in an A/N to be contradicted ten chapters later.
The general consensus seems to be that the broad framework is laid out, but the details are subject to change.
He's also friends with the authors of The Magic of Torchwood
and De Aged
, crediting the former as a key beta/source of advice and the latter as an invaluable source of scientific expertise.
Now has a completed twoshot spinoff, Chaos Reigns
, which elaborates on a Noodle Incident
that Wanda mentions in chapter 62 about her and Harry Dresden kicking demon arse together.
The first book was finished in July 2016 (clocking at 80 chapters and 821,705 words), and a first look into Book II was simultaneously posted, Ghosts of the Past,
dealing with most of the summer after Harry's third year.
Also, a reading, the first chapter of which can be found here.
