Elysiad: The Antagonist

Albus Dumbledore

Also Known As:

  • Albus
  • Dumbledore
  • Dumbles
  • Headmaster
  • Hogwarts (headmaster)
  • Ministry of Magic (Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot)
  • Order of the Phoenix (leader)

Pureblood. Repressed homosexual. Cisgender man. He/Him/His.
A manipulative bastard masquerading as a grandfatherly, twinkle-eyed old codger. Favors ridiculous outfits and convoluted plots. Obsessed with what he sees as "the greater good." In his case, it involves sacrificing others without their consent, maintaining the conservative status quo, and manipulating others for his own ends. The fact that, along with being headmaster of Hogwarts, he is also Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot, Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards, and head of the Order of the Phoenix, not to mention master of the Elder Wand, should be cause for far more concern than it is. What is most concerning, though, is that he has also created multiple horcruxes, one of which is his phoenix familiar, Fawkes. Another is a diary which he used to frame Tom Riddle for the original Chamber of Secrets incident in vis 6th year.

Brilliant, charismatic, and implacable, Riddle is an ardent anarcho-communist working to bring down the corrupt Ministry of Magic and repressive society of Magical Britain. Ve has been researching the source of magic with the goal of creating a way for muggles to become magical. Blood-adopted by Lily just before James burst in and doomed them all; this means that Tom and Elysia are blood-siblings and both can access the Le Fey grimoire. In vis 6th year, Dumbledore caught wind of vis ultimate goal, impiriused vim to open the Chamber of Secrets, and release the basilisk, and stole vis identity to create his diary horcrux and blame everything on Tom. Dumbledore's been using vim as a scapegoat ever since. Collaborator with Lily Le Fey (nee Potter, nee Evans). Parselmouth.
Mongoose animagus (Rikki-Tikki-Tommy, so-named by Lily at some point).

New Project: Elysiad (working title)

I had a dream one night, a couple of years ago, about Harry Potter. In this dream, Harry was a trans girl, and Voldemort was an anarcho-communist revolutionary, not a Dark Lord. (That was Dumbledore, actually.) Also, it was cyberpunk AF, complete with cortical stacks and cybernetic implants and completely customizable bodies. Anyway, in this dream Harry defects from the Order and joins Voldemort, who helps her transition via cybernetic body reconstruction. She renames herself Elysia Evans, and proceeds to rain hell on Dumbledore's status quo.

When I woke up, I of course had to write all this down. And I kept writing. And when I was done, I had the beginnings of one hell of a fic. And now, over a year later, I have a pile of very thorough notes, 7+ chapters of Year One, and 4,000+ words worth of WIP prequel stories. This is (and has been) a very long-term project, as once I'm done writing everything out I plan on rewriting it entirely, because sometimes that's what it takes to make a story really shine. We'll see, though; that's a long way off yet.

Keep an eye on the Elysiad tag for more details.
