November HP Recs  
I think there are three new fics/art this month, but the majority of these recs are for older works. Finally had a chance to work my way through my "re-read" and "to-read" list! I always feel so accomplished when I finally get to something I've been meaning to read for ages.

Title: Faultless
Author: lomonaaeren
Pairings: Harry/Draco
Word Count: 3,300
Rating: Hard R
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!harry, implied switching
Summary: Draco hates the iPhone Harry got him for Christmas, but he uses it because Harry got it for him. And sometimes, it really is worth it.
Fun and sexy fic with Draco's phone auto-correcting a text and some misunderstandings leading to hot and sweet sex!

Title: Kailash, When it Rises
Author: mirabella
Rating: PG
Pairing: Draco/Harry preslash
Word Count: 3,633
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era
Summary: Harry can't sleep.
Another one of those fics I read ages ago, and then never got around to reccing. This might not technically be Hogwart Era AU, but it's at the very least a War AU. Anyways, beautiful writing, with a really lovely characterization of Harry. Capture his feelings for Draco so wonderfully and the style is gorgeous and gripping.

Title: and there grows in the mind a scent
Author: megyal
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,822
Warnings/Content: veela!draco, creature!fic, bottom!harry, mild xenophilia
Summary: A Veela has killed their Mate. It's a devastating case that brings the Acting Head Auror and the Wizard-Veela Liaison Officer together again.
Lovely, poignant fic with a wonderfully real look at the veela trope. I thought the case was beautifully heartbreaking, and the depth of Harry's emotion for Draco (and vice versa) came across really well. Plus, hot riding with veela transformation! :D

Title: Hot and Cold
Author: who_la_hoop
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 7,800
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, auror!draco, hp concrit fest 2014
Summary: Harry had an inkling as he checked out his surroundings – a gloomy forest, dusted with snow, and featuring one hundred per cent more Draco Malfoy than was comfortable – that his first Auror practical exam was not going to go as well as he'd hoped...
This fic was super funny and super sexy! Loved their characterizations and interactions here and the sex was wonderfully hot! :D

Title: Pomegranate
Author: treacle_tartlet
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Luna/Pansy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 14,402
Warnings/Content: unusual jobs, chef!draco, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, hd career fair 2009
Summary: More than a decade after the War, Draco makes a triumphant return to the wizarding world as the successful chef/owner of Pomegranate, only to have his world thrown into disorder when Harry arrives unexpectedly in the dining room.
LOVED chef!Draco here, his characterization is so great, and he really is so perfect as a snooty, perfectionist chef. Loved his interactions with Harry and the sex was super hot. Plus adorable ending! :D

Title: The Astronaut Phase and sequelet Gravity
Author: pushdragon
Pairing: Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~17,000 & ~700
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, criminal!draco, bottom!harry, first time
Summary: This is for twistedm. It's a little bit of Harry/Draco whimsy inspired by her comment that rather than casting Ginny as a villain, she prefers to see her "doing something amazing and feminist and far, far away.
Really interesting fic that has Ginny as an astronaut, and Harry sort of moorless in his staid life. And then Draco comes along whose sexy and interesting and just sucks him into his orbit. Super sexy and wonderfully written.

Title: Weasleys' Wizard Weekend
Author: Anonymous
Pairing: Harry/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 4,773
Content/Warnings: forced proximity
Summary: The boys are trapped, wandless, in the storage cupboard of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes for the weekend.
Sexy and super sweet fic. Great read!

Title: Unspoken
Author: amorette
Pairing: James Potter/Sirius Black
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,200
Warnings/Content: shared bed, intergluteal sex, hp concrit fest 2014
Summary: The summer before his seventh year, Sirius left home and went to live with his best mate, James.
Really wonderful fic showing James and Sirius' friendship and their growing feelings when Sirius goes to stay with the Potters. I thought the characterizations were really wonderful here, and their chemistry was super hot!

Title: That Bitch Alcohol
Author: gryffindorj
Pairing(s): Albus Severus/Scorpius, side of Teddy/James Sirius
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,500
Warnings: drunk!sex, bottom!scorpius, hp nextgen fest 2012
Summary: Albus regrets many things, but mostly he regrets getting drunk and sleeping with Scorpius, something he managed to avoid for years. Now Albus can't get him out of his mind.
I loved Al and Scorpius here, such a great dynamic, and Al just cocking everything up because he's trying so hard to not be what people expect, that he's ignoring what he wants. I really adored the background Teddy James and the sibling banter between James and Al was fabulous!

Title: The Darkest Recesses of the Heart
Author: kerryblaze
Pairing: Harry/Ron, background Percy/Penelope, Ginny/Oliver, past Harry/OMC, Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~83,500
Content/Warnings: AU: Pre DH, memory loss, amnesia!fic, switching, first time, bottom!harry, bottom!ron, auror!ron
Summary: Harry disappears suddenly. Ron finds him hiding out in a small American town with a new set of friends and a new life and no memory of his old one.
Really interesting fic that was written before DH, but really doesn't feel too AU. Great plot, wonderful connection between Harry and Ron, and some hot sex! The fic really flew by!

Title: Summer at the Burrow
Artist: pumpkin_pantry
Pairing: Harry/Ron
Rating: PG
capitu mentioned this was one of her favorite Harry/Ron artworks over at harryronreunion, and I definitely have to agree. The coloring is so lovely and they both just seem so happy and carefree. The prefect summer day, IMO.

Title: What's Eating Harry Potter?
Artist: reallycorking
Pairing: Harry/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: comic, dub-con, incubus, bottom!harry, harry/ron reunion 2014
Summary: Post-Hogwarts, EWE. A couple of years after the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry and Ron are sharing a flat while attending Auror Academy. Harry starts acting...peculiar. It's up to Ron to figure out what is happening to Harry, before it's too late.
Long, interesting comic, with some beautifully drawn boys and super hot sexy times. :D

Oh, I remember some of those - The Astronaut Phase was great, and it had that steeple chase scene right out of one of Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles.

And Mirabella was one of the first H/D writers I found when I stumbled into fandom. "A Consummation Devoutly to be Wished" is very funny, and so was "Negotiations and". "The Shadow of His Wings", a sadly abandoned WIP, is complex and smoking hot. I hope she will post more of her old works again which have gone missing from the web.
