Attention Dresdenphiles! Only One More Week Until Peace Talks – Part 2 of 2

And now for something completely different: More Harry Dresden and Crew! πŸ˜€ What, you were expecting me to move on to another addictive series? Don’t worry. There’ll be plenty of time for that another day. Be afraid. Be very afraid. πŸ˜€Β  Okay, just kidding. While there are many series I love and will surely mention here and there, none has ever come close to this one. You’re safe from any future countdown posts. Probably. πŸ˜‰

Before we begin with the last few Dresden images and memes I’d like to share, let me just toss out one interesting tidbit, for those who may not have realized this. Nowhere in any of the Dresden Files books is Harry ever mentioned wearing, taking off or putting on, or even so much as owning a hat. Nope. And in fact, in one instance, he adamantly states, “I don’t do hats.” Yet, because of the gorgeous cover work of Christian McGrath, I will never be able to imagine Harry going out to do his Wizard Thing without one. And I fully approve.Β 


More villains, including one of the few images I could find of John Marcone, or Gentleman Johnny, as he’s known. (Yeah, I know it’s not a great one, but he came with the set.) Lara Raith and Lasciel are just plain evil, and Harry’s Godmother, the Leanansidhe is creepy as hell, but a bit more complicated to understand.

This one is more the way I picture Marcone, who’s a wonderfully worthy adversary for Harry. Evil in all the right ways, but with a weakness that makes him less of a cardboard villain and far more interesting.Β 


Okay, Bob. Here you go. While I’veΒ  mentioned Bob the Skull before, I couldn’t possibly end our Countdown Posts without another image or two. He wouldn’t stand for it. (Get it? Stand? Oh, sometimes I crack myself up!) Here’s Bob at Harry’s house.

And here he is at mine.
And yes, I dress him up for the holidays, much to his dismay.Β 

Found a few more illustrations of Murph out there, and while they aren’t exactly how I picture her, they’re fun, so I’m sharing them, too.

I recently came across more images of Harry’s brother, Thomas Raith, as well, and am including them for your viewing pleasure. (Maybe it’s just me, but this guy is a real treat for the eyes. No wonder he’s a card-carrying member of the White Court. πŸ˜€ )

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for a pretty face, and for me, this is simply a perfect image of Thomas, just as I picture him. (That rarely happens).Β  Β I also admit, I have a soft spot in my heart for Thomas Raith, and since I can’t remember half of the plots in these books I read so long ago, I’m always in agony, wondering what will become of him. Arrggh.

While living with Harry, he became the offcial cook.
Note the t-shirt. πŸ˜€

I also decided to share a couple of scenes between Thomas and Harry as they are first getting to know each other. (Long story. You’ll have to read it. πŸ˜€ )

And now for a few more images of Dresden himself because, well–Harry!

A Graphic Novel.
(Sometimes I’m sorry I kinda outgrew comic books.)

Another “Fuego!” Moment.
(Big Time!)

The only McAnally’s Bar image I could find.
Not my favorite, but we can’t forget Mac!

Gonna Wrap Up with A Few
Funny or Profound Memes andΒ  Quotes
Alert: May Contain Some Slightly Off Color Language!
(Nothing too dreadful, though.)

(Yeah, I know–pretty wordy for Mac.
That just goes to show you how much trouble
Harry was about take on.)

Murphy to Harry, About Harry & his Quest.
From Changes

Harry in Action

And finally, how this series will come to an end, if I get my wish!
Team Murphy, all the way!

  1. Great selection! Love the pics. Especially the Thomas pics 😁 And love the pic of Murphy on the motorcycle. Great quotes, too. I’d forgotten about some of them.

    If Harry and Katrin do finally hook up, would it be “Harrin” or “Karry”? 😁😁

  2. Thanks for giving me my Harry fix before I can dive back into Turn Coat tonight. I loved all of these. That one of Thomas in the white shirt is perfection, just how I picture him.
    Love that closing pic too. I’m a card carrying member of team Murphy!

    • You are welcome, Mae. I’m always happy to give you your daily fix of Harry Dresden, et al. I’ll miss these countdown posts going forward, but I might find the occasional little meme or quote to share now and then, just so I don’t have to go cold turkey. πŸ˜€

      That’s exactly how I see Thomas, too, and I say a wee little prayer to the Goddess of Fictional Characters every night, asking that he please be okay when all the dust has settled. πŸ˜€

      And I’ll bet you got your Team Murphy card the same place I did. I’ve known since the very start that she and Harry were meant to be together, which is one reason I never could bring myself to warm up to any other ladies in Harry’s life. None of them held a candle to Murph to my mind. I do hope Butcher understands what he MUST do. πŸ˜€

      Thanks for stopping by today, and happy reading tonight. I’m halfway through Ghost Story, and have two more to go before I’ll be ready for Peace Talks. Yay!!

    • I loved every one of the Harry Potter books, Miriam, and for once, I think Hollywood got the casting right on the movies, too. But Harry Dresden is in a class all by himself. That’s all I can say. The first book (which he wrote as a college assignment) was good. The next, better, and they have continued to improve for over twenty years now. The series is nothing short of amazing, and the characters will live in my heart forever. Hope you’ll check it out some day. πŸ™‚

  3. Love all this great artwork! Thomas–swoon! Harry–swoon+ (add the plus because wizard and snark πŸ˜€ ) And I’ve been rooting for Harry and Murph to get together through the whole series. I agree, I hope Butcher finally caves to our demands πŸ˜€

    • If Murphy and Harry do not end up together, I vote we form a committee to track down Jim Butcher and smite him about the head and shoulders, whilst screaming like banshees and otherwise creating mayhem and wreaking havoc. Whaddya say? πŸ˜€

      Seriously, I do think most of his readers would be very disappointed. We’ve been teased by the possibility forever, so he’s just got to make it happen. Team Murphy, all the way!

      Some of the artwork is wonderful, isn’t it? There are just hundreds upon hundreds of paintings and merchandise inspired by this series. So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for letting me know. And I hope you enjoy the rest of the Kate Daniels series. The team of Ilona Andrews is wonderful! There are a couple of other things they’ve done that I know you’d like, too. πŸ™‚
