The Duology Of Nicholas Andersen is a two-part story written by Brian Hawke. The story follows the adventures of aspiring young author Brian Hawke (No relation with the author) and his most beloved character, Nicholas Andersen. The first story (War Of A Thousand Worlds) is set in Brian's dreams, and deals with a conflict breaking out between the good-aligned characters of various stories and their evil-aligned counterparts after the murder of a young girl disrupts the until then peaceful relations with them. (Altough relatively few characters from outside the author's works make an appearance, as most of the conflict happens offscreen)Both Brian and Nicholas must work together to stop this conflict before it escalates into a full-blown well as deal with a traitor in their midst. You can find it here [1]


The second story, (The Falcon Writer) is set in the work's "real world", a transplanted version of Miraculous Ladybug with the setting moved to a London 20 Minutes into the Future. Here, Brian must team up with both Ladybug and Chat Noir to stop a new giver of powers, the mysterious Falcon Writer. It's still under development and you can find it here [2]

The story uses elements from various other stories as well, mostly as devices (Such as a "Lightning Thrower" from El Eternauta) or as characters appearing as a One-Scene Wonder, such as Darth Vader. A non-canon prequel story, Tales Of A Reset Mind, expands on Nico's backstory, and is set in a version of Inside Out.
