Title: Ascended Vices Author: ScottPress Rating: M Genre: Crime/Drama Status: Work in progress Library category: Alternates Pairings: nothing's set in stone Summary: Harry seeks a purpose of his own. Lines blur for Sirius as he fills the power vacuum left in Wizarding Britain by Voldemort and Dumbledore. The war never really ended. Sequel to Lesser Evils (link to the Library thread for that one). Links: WbA FFN Yes, I'm submitting my own stuff again. Out of the gate, you won't understand what's going on here if you haven't read the first fic. I'm also submitting this for review much earlier in the wordcount than I did the first fic, but it turns out today is the anniversary of the WbA thread, so I thought, why not. If I may be so bold, I think my writing is much better now than when I started Lesser Evils, so the beginning doesn't feel like high-grit sandpaper. I also have a solid direction for where things have to go from the outset, which I hope will make for stronger plotting. Updates have been slow (less than 40k words in a year, well...) but I'll put that down to college bullshit last year. I'm hoping to get on a somewhat regular schedule starting in May. If you've read Lesser Evils, you pretty much know what to expect: I intend to continue to explore the questionable morality of the main characters (Harry, Sirius, and to a lesser extent, Sturgis and Mulciber), deliver some Dark magic ponderings, some good action, interesting characters (though perhaps not ones you'll want to root for), and most importantly, an original plot, all supported by continually improving writing.
