GRYFFINDOR: “They say you can know a man by his enemies, Dresden. You defy beings that should cow you into silence. You resist forces that are inevitable for no more reason than that you believe they should be resisted. You bow your head to neither demons nor angels, and you put yourself in harm’s way to defend those who cannot defend themselves. I think I like you.” -Jim Butcher (Donar Vadderung: Changes)

Potter vs Dresden bad guys

Me and my one friend again got into this fun debate and she went on about how Voldemort put fear in all the wizards and how powerful he is. I just laughed, come on Voldemort would not survive a denarian I don’t think, yes they can be killed but could he beat Lashiel or Anduriel? I doubt it. Now let’s put Voldemort and have him face a Queen of Fey? How long would he last against the least of them? Or Donar Vadderung and the Erlking? But what if we consider more mortal foe, how would he do against the red court? White Court with their speed? How well would Greyback do against a Loup-garou?

Yes Voldemort was technically immortal but he was also limited compared to what some of these baddies are in the Dresden universe. What do you think? Is it possible that Voldemort is actually stronger? Or would be be a much a threat as a mosquito is to us?

Aesir and Dresden

I can see with Dresden very sarcastic nature if he ever is with Odin again and another male Aesir comes in like Thor that he will have to make the cement how he is talking to a pair of Ass or something like that. Since two or more male Aesir are called Ass I can’t see Dresden not being a jerk and saying something horrible like that.

But how would the God’s react?

They say you can know a man by his enemies, Dresden.” He smiled, and laughter lurked beneath his next words, never quite surfacing. “You defy beings that should cow you into silence. You resist forces that are inevitable for no more reason than that you believe they should be resisted. You bow your head to neither demons nor angels, and you put yourself in harm’s way to defend those who cannot defend themselves.” He nodded slowly. “I think I like you.

Dresden Files Casting-Donar Vadderung

I could’ve taken the easy route and picked Anthony Hopkins for Odin. But I didn’t. Why Rutger Hauer? Because he’s an awesome actor.

(I didn’t put the eyepatch in there. That was someone on Jim Butcher’s forums, who also did the Jeff Bridges one from earlier.)
