I'm James aka Cassius Alcinder.
I've done a bit of sportswriting, but this is my first foray into fiction. Cassius Alcinder is my sportswriter penname; it combines the real names of two famous athletes who changed their names.
While browsing HP Wiki a few months ago, I read through the questions on the History of Magic NEWT, and there was one about a secret task force of wizards and muggles that helped the Allies win WWII. That little tidbit inspired me to start writing fanfics by giving me the plot bunny that has become "Their Finest Hour," my ongoing novel about Dumbledore's quest to defeat Grindelwald and how it fits into the bigger picture of WWII. It also tells the story of a British soldier named John Evans, who may or may not be Lily's dad
I also really enjoy writing comedy, so I have started writing comedy fanfictions as well. My first humor story on here is "Voldemort and the Epic Recession," which is about Voldemort trying to find a regular job after Harry defeats him. I have several other similar stories in the works about various characters, including Snape, Sirius, and Cedric.
I also have a few other action/adventure stories in the works, icluding one about Dean Thomas meeting some football hooligans when he's on the run in Book 7, one about young Tom Riddle when he was in Eastern Europe, and a buddy cop story about Kingsley and Mad-Eye that's equally action and comedy.
