    The Seduction of Sirius Black

    The Seduction of Sirius Black by Sciathan File

    Summary: “I hope to Merlin that everyone’s collective wisdom was very wrong and that neither Sirius Black nor James Potter has been the death of me – try though they may have to have been so.” Oneshot, 10,649 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Sciathan File has a very unique style of writing, and she’s got a good handle on character as well as what it takes to write a good fight scene.  She’s gone and done something unique with her plot, which is to say she’s engineered an Order of the Phoenix mission that seems like something that would have happened.  She’s done her research (which is always something that earns big, shiny bonus points from me, as I’m the queen of too-much-research) and the plot has been well thought out.

    Why You Might Not Care: Sciathan File has a … very unique style of writing.  A uniquely complex style of writing.  The ways in which she engineers a sentence are not to be taken lightly.  My best advice?  Read slowly, and don’t press on if you’re not sure you’ve understood what that last sentence just said.  Take the time with this one, and you’ll probably enjoy it.  Speed-read, and you’ll get to end not really knowing what just happened.

      Merlin, two consecutive days of Sirius rec’s! Thanks! I agree that a little research goes a long way, and by consequence, the matrix between original choices and canon clues blended really well.

      Thanks for the rec!

      That was so achingly bittersweet.
