Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod By Heather Sinclair

Title: Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod
Author: Heather Sinclair
Rating: T (PG-13)
Genre: General/Horror
DLP Category: General/Dark
Pairing: H/Padma
Chapters: 10
Words: 41,335
Updated: December 29, 2008
Published: June 14, 2008

Status: Complete
Summary: Every seventy years members of the Order of the Bath, a British order of chivalry, are being killed off. That is until Harry is brought in to hunt the killer or killers down.
Link: Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod (FFn) Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod (PC)

Interesting read, especially for someone like me who has an interest in old Irish mythology and such. The mention of the Tuatha De Danann was cool. I've already spent time researching that stuff for my Dresden crap, so it was kind nifty to see it somewhere else.

The story itself is only one chapter, but I still liked it so far. Not enough to give a rating for though.

As for the content available, its pretty good. I liked Harry's characterization and the end bit with the hot oil and padma and Harry was sweet. I LOL'd.

Rating for later, when more is added.

<_< At least the bitch didn't kill Hannah this time.

It was an interesting little piece. I'm looking forward to seeing more. I'll rate it asfter a few more chapters.

Well, solid work as usual, Heather. I hate the 'accept first, answers later'-thing, but that's just something personal -- I tend to refuse there on principle. Makes me actually want to read a story where there is all that build-up, mystery and what have you, and when the protagonist is thrown into said situation he says no, goes home, grabs a beer and the story is over >_>

Err ... anyway, looks certainly interesting so far, and Padma + warm oil is something I want for my birthday.

The only problem I could see ... you have already a bunch of stories going -- d'you have time for them all? What is the status of, say, War of Wills or 24 Hours to Live anyway?

Intriguing. I'll be on the lookout for future chapters. I wonder what role Padma had in Harry's anointment ceremony (which is what I think what happened).

Vash- Holy crap, I wasn't expecting this to be up on DLP so quick. I tripped across the Tuatha De Danann while I was doing research for ULFD and knew I needed to use it for this story. I plan on abusing the legends so don't get used to it being close to what it's supposed to be. It got me writing is again after it was sitting on my HD for about a year. Thanks for the rec, baby!

Sesc- So everyone will know what the heck I'm doing ...
ULFD chap 3 is at the beta and I am keeping myself busy until it arrives. So Scarlet Rod is 2nd up, and all the rest of my unfinished stories are for when Mr. Writer's Block comes to sit on my face.

I have not abandoned anything so no worries there. I'd say 24, and War of Wills are the other two that I work on the most.

eXcalite- I knew someone was going to crack a joke at the name, LOL. ANd you can bet Harry will as well.

"Padma, would you like to play with my Scarlet Rod?"

Come on I need good joke material here.

Knothead- More on the annointing ceremony later. You get a little hint in chapter two but everyone will find out what went on. Don't worry.

Well the story is young yet, and there might be a Lovecraftian oogie out and around. Chances are ... maybe. Vash, baby, I wouldn't do that to you two stories in a row. I think she's off with Susan having a torrid lesbian experience. Is that better? I could always bring her in with the warm oil and they could have their own "annointing ceremony."

o.o

Now thats just unfair. <_<

But as to the general public of DLP, I feel I must apologize. I have been horridly mistaken, as one was kind enough to point out with many incentives, this story was first posted and debuted on Patronus Charm. I havent been in days, so I didn't notice.

Link added above, correcting this. Chapter two is also posted on PC.

PC link bolded for intense winnery.

In 1.0.2 there's a filter to fix the styling problem for stories like Gentlemen Usher.


So far I'm quite enjoying this story. Horror/Mystery is always an enticing genre. I'm somewhat reminded of The Dresden Files, but far different. 4/5 from me, I quite look forward to the rest.

OMG, Harry wielding a Sting!sword is awesome.

Hope to not see the update rate taper off into oblivion.

Just read the second chapter and liked it considerably more than the first. I reviewed already - spelling mistake included (yay) - so I'll leave it at that.

4/5 - pending further updates. Considering your other work, Heather, this'll be as low as you get from me.

Thank you for your confidence. I'll do my best not to let you down.


J.B. - Does Sree have something against the lovely Miss Patil?

Andro - I swear I didn't steal the Sting!sword from LOTR. It is actually part of the legend of the Four Treasures. Maybe that's where Tolkien stole it from? But Harry is not going to being wielding in it battle, or at least not effectively. No mad swordsmanship skillz for the wizard. No sweaty sword training scenes, only sweaty anointing ceremonies. Oops, TMI.

I think I showed his wariness toward using the weapons instead of his magic. It will probably be the last line of defense if he loses his wand or something.

Raven - Mmmm, thanks for the glowing link, baby. It makes me feel all tingly inside.

Vash - Thanks for the correction!

Everyone - I promised Raven that I would post my newest story at PC first. I'm posting updates there and then a few days later at FF.net. So FF.net will always be a chapter behind. So it should be obvious if you want the latest goodies then go to PC!

Not directed at me, but meh.

Padma is Indian. Sree hates Indians. They don't mix.

Just felt like throwing that out there for those who don't know.

Anything that's Patil related can't be bad in my book.

Heather, I enjoyed the first chapter quite a bit, but I haven't read the second chapter yet - take a look at my review to see all my specific comments.

So far, I'd say 4/5 - but I'll wait to vote until I read the next chapter.
