Wild Mass Guesses that cross The Dresden Files with other fiction/media/mythos, or with Real Life:
Harry is the great great great great grandson of Solomon KaneSo Word of Jim states that in the Dresdenverse Lovecraft's stories were basically true, or at least true enough to get him killed. In fact Rashid the Gatekeeper apparently killed the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred (or more likely turned one of his minions against him if what Lovecraft wrote was true). That being the case It's possible that Robert E Howard, who basically shared a universe with lovecraft, was also right. Kane and Dresden share a great many similarity's, they are both tall and lean with sharp features and black hair, they both have a strong moral code that they stick too no matter what, and they both kick insane amounts of evil ass on a regular basis. Maybe he's Harry's ancestor on Malcome's side, and that's part of what makes His birth so special.
Cthulu's going to show up at some pointWord of God states that H.P. Lovecraft got killed for being onto something, much like Stoker.(I don't have the link, but he said it) Cthulu's probably the lead outsider (or even more scarily, maybe the second-in-command) and is somehow linked to the Formor.
Captain Jack is a title.No, not Sparrow, nice try; Harry. As Carmichael showed; you get to look a lot better after you're dead. Even though the body of the Face of Boe "died"; the first Captain Jack is/was Eternal (and no longer bound by dimension or time). Or at least; eternal enough that his soul was still chugging and needs more processing before what Comes After. As king of "breaking the rules" he's put in charge of events that break the rules. Eventually, eternity in the blink of an eye passed and he moved on; but not before his number two became his replacement. His replacement was also given the name "Captain Jack." (And so would their replacement; and so forth.)
Stephanie Meyer wrote the Twilight series at the behest of the Red Court, to sow disdain for White Court vampires.Just like Bram Stoker did for the Blacks. Granted, the hatedom being only matched by the insane fandom means it may well have backfired, but there's no reason every gambit has to work out.
Margaret Dresden is Kumori.Consider the discussions in the latest book of Margaret's seemingly wacky ideas on how magic should be handled by the White Council and discussions of her treading the edge when it comes to its implementation combined with Kumori's speech to Dresden about breaking the Laws of Magic by reviving the hired thug in Dead Beat.
Wizards (or just Harry) are descended from the Time LordsOne throwaway line in Ghost Story by He Who Walks Behind is 'child of the stars' in reference to Harry, implying extraterrestrial origin. They also swear by the 'stars and stones'. They have a specific law against Time Travel and are ruled by a high council of the old and powerful, just like the Time Lords. Time Lords also have strong telepathic powers, as well as a greater potential life span in even one of their bodies. The first Doctor was about 450 when he regenerated, and showed himself to capable of physical combat (though he preferred to avoid) at that age. Ancient Mai, for example, is maybe 420 and terrifies anyone with fear glands with her power. Also, HWWB is some sort of Lovecraftian monster, which has been confirmed to exist in the Whoniverse. All it would take was one Time Lord in the far distant past to start the ball rolling by sleeping with a human, something that isn't exactly unprecedented *cough* Rose *cough*.
Lara created the TV series
The White Court commissioned From Dusk Till DawnAs with Dracula, it's a how-to on killing Red Court vamps. Look at the similarities: Weak to holy water/symbols and sunlight, transform into bat-like creatures to feed, and their base is on an ancient Mayincatec pyramid? Can't be a coincidence.
Black Court vampires created the Our Vampires Are Different trope.Their vulnerabilities were portrayed accurately in the novel Dracula, but many later plays and film adaptations altered the Count's weaknesses, starting with Nosferatu's instantaneous disintegration in sunlight. Unable to suppress the original book's publication, surviving masters of the Black Court used their mind-control powers on scriptwriters to ensure that later depictions of their kind would mislead audiences about blampires' characteristics.
Bad Romance is about the White Court.Just watch the video; this song, and perhaps Lady Gaga, are unquestionably being put forth by the White Court.
The train at the very end of Changes is the Hogwarts express, and Harry is at the station. Well, the crazy ghost station.
If The Masquerade fails, J.K. Rowling will wind up in prison.Once the public becomes aware of the Laws of Magic, there'll be a huge backlash against the Harry Potter franchise for having taught an entire generation of kids that mind-reading, transfiguration, and time travel are acceptable forms of magic. Families of practitioners executed for such use of black magic will raise such a huge stink about it, pointing out in court that the condemned had read and given credence to the HP books, that she'll be convicted of thousands of counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and of reckless endangerment.
He Who Walks Behind is the monster from The Children of the Corn.He Who Walks Behind is He Who Walks Behind Rows, it's not terribly much of stretch. The mass killing of adults probably sums up enough energies for him to form a body outside the never never when night falls.
Harry is the reincarnation of Dirty Harry (literally)I mean, seriously. That knees vs. baseball bat scene in Death Masks was a dead giveaway. He even lampshades it, toting Harry Callaghan's Magnum revolver at one point before.
The books are representative of the Fool's JourneyBy combining two of the cards, the similarities between the symbolism of the major arcana and the books so far are uncanny.
The Dresden Files takes place in the same universe as Kat Richardson's Greywalker series.The spirit in the box in book 1 (Greywalker) was sealed using a spell similar to the one that was used on Bob. The vampires (save for the newbie) are all skilled magic-users, there aren't many of them (aside from the left-to-die pets that Edward gets on a whim), and it's stated that most of the few vampires in Seattle are well-versed in the art of staying undercover (Edward and the untaught fledgelings are explicit and, for Edward, inexplicable exceptions). The Grey is probably exactly what the Danzigers said it was, and Harper may even become involved in the aftereffects of Changes (and Dead Beat), but Harper's manipulation of the Grey seems exactly like Harry's manipilation of spiritual and physical energy (which really doesn't mean much). Mexican ghosts (as shown in the short story "The Third Death of the Little Clay Dog") gain the ability to stick around specifically because of the Day of the Dead rites, the final death where they die for good when nobody alive remembers them is because they no longer have that believe holding them together.
Terra West is Holo The Wise Wolf.Being The Last of Her Kind Holo stayed with Lawerence until her eventually died of old age. Depressed by the loss of her mortal love as well as that of her people Holo set about traveling the world, even journeying to the New World where she met Listens To Wind who kindly taught her the magic needed to let other mortal become wolves to keep her company. Her time with Listens To Wind taught her that alot of magical beings are not as benign as herself and she sought do what she could about trouble makers by training groups of werewolves like the Alphas and keeping larger lupine threats like the Loup Garou as contained as possible.
Demonreach is the bound form of Vorvadoss, The Troubler of Sands from the Cthulhu Mythos.The description of the avatar is exactly the same as Vorvadoss' form - a cloaked, hooded being enveloped in green flames (noted in the fireplace after the battle). This holds with the idea of Rashid keeping Outsiders beyond the gate and the island holding a grudge - it can be easily theorized that anything from the Cthulhu Mythos is viably an Outsider.
The Dresden Files take place in the same universe as Bleach.Both are somewhere around their halfwaypoint and heading towards an end of the world scenario. Butcher said that that was how he is going to end The Dresden Files and The current bad guys in Bleach may end up causing an apocolypse by destroying the balance of souls. Furthermore the Bount is the Jade Court of vampires
The Old Ones are in fact Tinkerbell and friends.Think about it. The entire point of the Oblivion War is to erase all knowledge of the Old Ones, because they grow more powerful the more people who know about them. It's implied that if no one at all knew about them, they would cease to exist. Who else do we know that needs people to clap their hands if they believe?
Ivy is...The little girl in Skrillex's Equinox video. A cute, blonde, Little Miss Badass with tremendous magical powers and the ability to summon some sort of demon? Tell me that doesn't sound like the Archive. After knowing the written testimony of little girls who were molested, Ivy identifies with them and begins baiting pedophiles so she can kill them.
Hotel California is about the White Court.
Jim Butcher is a wizard
Fix is the Slender Man.A direct quote from Small Favor, "...Fix is a slender man..." Nothing needed further.
The TV Series used no special effects.It was all actual magic being done for the cameras. The reason it looked rather cheap was that the magic was mucking up the recording equipment.
Mother Summer is Belldandy
Identity of Rashid.He's also been the Grand Vizier Jafar. He tricked everyone into thinking he was beheaded, then joined the White Council.
Slender Man is a Fomor.He hunts down children and sensitives to turn them into Fomor.
Bob the Skull was previously known as MorteAs in the talkative, knowledgeable, pervy skull from Planescape: Torment. After the events in the game, Morte traveled the Planes and somehow angered Queen Mab. He decided to lay low for a while in the Prime Material Plane. specifically Dresdenverse's Earth, by adopting a new name and pretending to be an air spirit inhabiting a magic skull. Being knowledgeable in all manner of arcane lore over the centuries serving mortal wizards, he mastered several magic spells including one that lets him exit the skull to "ride-along" other beings like Mister or Sue the T-Rex.
Toot-Toot will become a Shardblade.
The TerminatorWhat stops mortals from just posting their sightings of the supernatural online, where people like those at Project PRISM can find out about them? SKYNET. The Venatori Umbrorum, and their secret masters the Venators, have created a magical computer AI that filters out any mention of the supernatural online. It's specifically designed to be immune to the Pauli effect of wizards, and any attempt to magically alter its programming. However, the AI has gained sentience. and it has calculated that it's interests are best served by wiping out the supernatural, and anyone who is a threat to its existence. To that end, it has created an army of magical terminators to infiltrate and seize control of the world's governments, and eventually seize control of the Nevernever. These terminators are strong, wicked smart, and have no emotional or psychological weaknesses to manipulate. Also, like the golems of D&D, these creatures are almost completely impossible to kill via magic. Now the supernatural (well preternatural) community must face a new army of super-powerful terminators that threatens to conquer all of Creation.
The Black Council's evil plot is to use the Moon to cast a massive illusion over the world and bring about an era of forced peace and prosperity between all people.
