How does this contradict my claim?
Serbo-Croatian is common literary language of Serbs and Croats. Name Serbo-Croatian was officially established on joint Vienna Literary Agreement of 1850 while Serb and Croat lands were still part of the Ottoman and Habsburg Empires. Officially, the language was called variously Serbo-Croat, Croato-Serbian, Serbian and Croatian, Croatian and Serbian, Serbian or Croatian, Croatian or Serbian, depending of place.  Serbo-Croatian never existed as vernaculare.
Čakavian and Kajkavian are exclusively part of Croatian history, literature etc, there is no link between Serbian literature and that language.

Serbo-Croatian is both Serbian and Croatian. So dialects within those languages are dialects within Serbo-Croatian. Chakavian and Kajkavian aren't dialects of Serbian, they're dialects of Serbo-Croatian.
