By Rote, for [info]lizardspots

Title: By Rote
Author: *unknown*
Recipient: [info]lizardspots
Rating: NC-17+some
Pairing: James/Harry
Summary: Just because your child kills one animal, it doesn't mean they're abnormal.
Warnings: Other than incest? Patchy psychological analysis, overuse of italics, intellislash tactics and the word 'wrong.' And it's AU obviously, as James/Harry tends to be (no D/H spoilers or references).
Word Count: approx. 9,000
Author's Notes: Lizardspots essentially asked for a "Dexter" pastiche - it was surprisingly fun to write and I hope you like it! "Dexter" is a Showtime series, based on a series of novels, about a sociopath who only kills other killers. Part of its premise is that Dexter's adopted father, Harry (ha!), was a cop who taught Dexter from the time he was a young boy to channel his murderous urges and only target those who "deserved it." More info here. Thanks to my veritable army of betas, like Dumbledore's Army, only without an applicable Umbridge figure in the metaphor :P
DH Spoilers: None.
