Author: femmequixotic
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Hermione/Ron, Luna/Rolf, Ginny/OMC, past Ginny/Harry, past Draco/OMCs
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 15,027
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, author!draco, implied bottom!draco, hd_fan_fair's book fair 2013
Summary: After thirteen years of hiding himself away in Muggle London, Draco Malfoy shows up again in the wizarding world--with a wickedly amusing memoir in hand. Harry doesn't want to read it. Really. He doesn't.
This fic had some of the most realistic characters I have read. Both Harry and Draco are broken, but not defeated and I loved watching them come together in this.

Title: Days of the Week Series (2 Fics)
Author: firethesound
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny
Word Count: 16,478 total
Rating: Hard R
Content/Warnings: bottom!draco
Summary: The absolute last place Harry expected to see Malfoy was in a rundown Muggle cinema on a Tuesday night.
This was such a lovely and sweet fic. It starts out with Ginny leaving Harry because he isn't in love with her and deserves to be more than content. And then he runs into a down-on-his-luck Draco at a Muggle movie theatre and starts to get to know him and it is just adorable and fantastic. And the companion piece is sweet and fluffy.

Title: And Back Again (Where You Belong)
Author: eidheann_writes
Pairings: Harry/Draco, mentioned past Harry/others
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,000
Content/Warnings: rimming, drunk!sex, bottom!draco, friends with benefits, auror!harry
Summary: He thought back on their previous handshakes, and smiled faintly at the fact they always seemed to mean so much more to him than they did to Potter.
This fic is really wonderful, with a lot of fabulous little details that really hook you in. I love how Harry and Draco's relationship starts here, with Harry wanting something casual and afraid to admit his feelings/sexuality, and Draco being the one who wants more, and really ends up being the brave one when it comes to his feelings, making the necessary change when things don't work out the first time around. Draco is seriously wonderful in this and when things finally fall into place with Harry it's lovely and sexy and just awesome.

Title: Fata Morgana locked to AO3 users
Author: icmezzo
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: R
Word Count: ~16,500
Content/Warnings: unusual jobs, hd_erised 2014
Summary: “It’s only a mirage,” they tell Draco (and Pepper). “You must be imagining,” they dismiss him in turn. But Draco Malfoy is certain something is out there, and, come hell or Harry Potter, he’ll find out. He will.
Awesome, almost fairy-tale like, fic. Draco here is absolute perfection, with his adorable crup, and his cheeky house elf, and his strict routines. The whole island mystery was really great, interesting and intriguing, but not overwhelming. The writing is fabulous and the entire thing is just enchanting.

Title: Moneymaker

Word Count: 16,616
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, dub-con, face-fucking, dirty talk, light praise!kink, bottom!harry, window!sex, light D/s, mild suit!kink, *my prompt, dracotops_harry 2016
Summary: As a top trader, Draco has power and money, suits and cars, houses and good champagne - everything a person could want. So when Auror Potter comes looking for help, Draco can't think of anything that might persuade him to lend a hand.
Well...maybe one thing.
Oh my goodness this fic is awesome! Dead fucking hot with all kinds of delicious things like dub-con and face-fucking and dirty talk, with a hint of praise!kink and suit!kink to boot! I love the idea of Muggle-living Draco who isn't just barely making it by working in some coffee shop, but seriously living large with champagne and private jets and fancy gadgets. Draco's voice here is wonderful, and the banter between him and Harry is seriously delightful. The ending does living things rather open ended, but I thought it worked great with the fic and left me free to imagine all kinds of delicious future possibilities. Wonderful read all around.

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~17,000
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, auror!draco, bottom!harry, implied bottom!draco, beltane!fic
Summary: Aurors Malfoy and Potter have to work a case on Beltane. It would be simple if everything wasn't so damn distracting.... For those of you who are wondering, yes, I've tried to cram in as many h/d clichés as possible. But hopefully the story works as a story, too. It's not crack!fic by a long shot but it is a bit tongue-in-cheek.
This fic is great. I love the sexual tension of beltane and the misunderstandings and the hot sex and happy ending! :)

Title: Reparatio
Author: astolat
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~17,363

Summary: Draco snorted. “I’m not reduced to penury. I want something considerably beyond money, and I rather think you’re the only one can give it to me.”
“You want the Invisibility Cloak,” Harry said, flatly. He’d half expected as much; it was the only thing he had that Draco could want—
“Don’t be stupid, Potter,” Draco said. “I want my reputation back.”
Oh this fic was just delightful! LOVED Draco's characterization in this, and the chemistry between him and Harry was fantastic. Really wonderful relationship development and an interesting plot. I really liked Draco's job here. :)

Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~17,000 and ~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.

Word Count: 17,437
Content/Warnings: mild dub-con, dirty talk, parseltongue!kink, bottom!harry, dracotops_harry 2014
Summary: Hogwarts’ future depends on Malfoy’s texts. Too bad the key is up Potter’s arse.
OMG. This fic was so good! So funny, but without getting too cracky, which, is seriously impressive considering the premise! And JFC the sex!! So many of my kinks, but especially the dirty talk! Some of the best I've read in awhile. I just loved the tone of the fic and the light-hearted banter and the sexing and just, this was amazing.

Summary: A perfect match, a romance for the ages, with a one hundred percent success rate! Magic Match claims they can give Draco all of this. So why do they keep sending him on dates with Harry Potter?
This fic was great! Loved the matchmaking service, and the fact that, no matter what Draco's answers, he always ended up matched with Harry. There were some seriously funny moments here, and Draco's voice was just perfect. And it was all capped off with some amazing sex and a lovely ending.

Title: Twenty-four Reasons to Remember
Author: omi_ohmy
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,700
Content/Warnings: established relationship, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, holiday!fic
Summary: Harry has almost forgotten what it is to be happy in love and life, until Draco gives him twenty-four chances to remember.
Slightly less fluffy than most advent fics, but not too angsty! Draco and Harry are busy with work and haven't really made their relationship a priority. Draco wants them to be remember why they work well together and fell in love, so he come up with an advent calendar of sorts to help Harry remember. This was touching, and sweet, and realistic, and sexy.

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, implied bottom!draco, established relationship, auror!harry, dirty talk, mention/discussion of: D/s, felching, object insertion, food porn, exhibitionism, spanking, cross-dressing, and, I don’t know, throw in like a consensual orgy,
Summary: This entire fic is one long conversation about sex.
I love the concept of this fic, where Draco is self-conscious about his desires, so he takes veritaserum so he can ask Harry for what he wants. And the conversation they have, god, it is so filthy and hot, love me some dirty talk.

The Auror Department is instating a K9 Crup Unit, and Harry is the first to sign up. Turns out the professional trainer is Draco Malfoy, and he has to live with Harry as part of the Crup training programme.
This fic is just awesome! Draco as a crup trainer is adorably sexy, and of course, Harry is smitten right away, both with Draco, and his sweet new crup partner. We get both Harry and Draco's POV here, and their voices and characterizations are really great. It was wonderfully watching them come together so naturally, and the crup training along the way was seriously lovely.

Unsure of what he really wants and growing increasingly confused in his personal life, Harry decides to take a holiday—alone—to clear his mind and find himself. He books a trip to a wizarding resort, expecting to be the lone guest, only to find out Draco Malfoy will be there as well. Falling back on old habits, Harry determines Malfoy must be up to something. In his search to uncover Malfoy’s secrets, Harry inadvertently does what he had meant to all along— find himself.
Such a wonderful, enjoyable fic! The descriptions of the island made me quite desperate for a summer vacation, and I really adored this slightly confused Harry who keeps putting his foot in his mouth.

Word Count: 19,246
Content/Warnings: hd_smoochfest 2015
Summary: Harry cursed the day he’d ever made the stupid bet with Ron because that bet was what had led to him being naked in front of a Muggle art class. Of course Draco Malfoy had to be taking the class, because that’s just how Harry’s life worked.
Oh this such a fun and charming read! The author does such a wonderful job of selling the plot and Draco here is just drop dead sexy. Harry's POV was delightful and I adored the dynamic between them here.

Summary: In which Harry thinks he’s a playboy, everyone else knows better, and Hermione will kill Seamus if Ron tries to collect on that bet.
Seriously hot fic with Harry and Draco in a friends with benefits type relationship and Harry convinced that he's totally not ready for anything more. But, of course, his friends know better, and convince him to go on blind dates to their weddings. The dates are a disaster (though luckily they end in fabulous sex with Draco!) and Harry begins to realize what, or rather who, he truly wants. Fun and sexy read.

Summary: "Luck is not chance, it's toil; fortune's expensive smile is earned.”
Draco wants to ask Harry to move in with him, but he is nervous about it, so he takes some Felix. Romantic comedy is a perfect description for this fic. I loved Draco's POV and his relationship with Scorpius and with Harry. And the dirty talk! So fantastic!

When he’s injured in the line of duty, he refuses treatment from anyone except Healer Malfoy, who is befuddled but perfectly willing to find out what this means.
This fic was fantastic and fascinating! I loved the idea of uni and the magical military and the fusion of these ideas into the magical world was so well done! And the dynamic between Ron and Harry, and, of course, Harry and Draco was just too perfect.

Content/Warnings: Bottom!Harry, Frottage, Fake/Pretend relationship, Forced Proximity, shared bed, 2017
Summary: The course of true love never did run smooth.
Or: Hermione has a crafty plan, Harry and Draco are fake boyfriends and wizarding traditions have a lot to answer for. Featuring awkward dates, mince pies, a saucy sofa and a line of sequined house-elf haute couture nobody asked for but got anyway.
Oh gosh, this fic is such a delight! Lovely use of the fake/pretend relationship trope, and the chemistry between Harry and Draco here is off the charts. Fun and sexy and just a really wonderful, satisfying read.

Summary: After finding and catching the renowned art thief Draco Malfoy, Harry realises he needs his help and gets him released from Azkaban into his custody. But has Draco really decided to live a crime-free life? Or is he just biding his time until the right opportunity strikes?
So much to love. LOVE Draco as a thief, the profession just suits him I think. And the bantering and chemistry between him and Harry was just fantastic. Luna as an auror (and as Ginny's lover) was fantastic. Fun style and the ending was adorable and sweet.

Pairing: Harry/Draco, Pansy/Blaise, implied Hermione/Ron
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 20,586
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, unusual jobs, hd_erised 2013
Summary: When a violin goes missing, Draco has to work with Potter to clear both their names.
This was so great! The careers are so unique (especially Harry's, he is a luthier, a person who repairs/restores violins!) but it so works in this fic and it's actually believable, which I was worried about going into the fic! Love Draco's reactions to Harry and his playing, and their relationship development was so lovely.

Oh gosh, this fic was so lovely! Draco here was wonderful and I loved how both he and Harry were a bit lost and broken and trying to figure out who they were and how they fit together. Really sexy and touching read.

Summary: Harry doesn’t want to waste his time investigating illegal dragonhide trading, whether it involves a fetish club in Knockturn Alley or visiting a remote island in Wales. Why the bloody hell does Malfoy always have to be up to something?
OMG, this fic is fucking awesome! Harry's voice is great here, and he's fantastic as the Auror who needs to investigate the influx of dragonhide in Great Britain, which, of course, leads him to Draco looking sinful in dragonhide trousers! The story was lovely, the chemistry between Harry and Draco was sizzling, and JFC the sex was seriously freaking hot. Love!

I love this. Draco has such an unusual job and Harry is so lost, and they are just so believable together.

Title: Glamour

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, past Harry/Ginny, past Harry/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,730
Content/Warnings: EWE, gender-bending, bottom!draco, auror!harry, auror!draco
Summary: Post-war: Harry is given an assignment: to assist Draco Malfoy as he carries out a month-long disguise that turns out to reveal more than it hides in the end.
I must say that genderbending isn't normally my thing, (I want my boys to like each other as boys!) but it just works in this story. The reason for the disguise makes sense, and in the end, Harry realizes he's not quite as straight as he thought.

Title: Touch Me Fall

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Hermione/Ron, Angelina/George, (mention of Bill/Fleur; completely offscreen Draco/OMCs and past Harry/OMCs; past Harry/Ginny)

Warnings/Content: prostitution, exhibitionism, public!sex, barebacking, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, rentboy!draco, hd_tropes 2014
Summary: Malfoy was such a ponce. And he was a complete snob. And he was so fucking fit Harry wanted to jump him where he sat. It would be too easy to forget his objective tonight: to really, really, really get Malfoy out of his system.
Rentboy fics are really not my thing, so that fact that I loved this fic as much as I did was a wonderful surprise. Their relationship was lovely and believable and the details in the story (like Harry and Kreacher's text convos!) were fantastic. Plus, some seriously, ridiculously hot sex. Switching, but mostly bottom!Harry which is my absolute fav ratio. :D

Title: House Proud

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: R (But I think PG-13 might be more accurate)
Word count: ~23,110
Content/Warnings: forced proximity, shared bed
Summary: His house liked Draco Malfoy more than him.
Really wonderfully fascinating fic with Grimmauld Place taking a shine to Draco and eventually trapping him and Harry inside. I loved the personality of the house, and the details here were intricate and really quite amazing. I also thought the spin on the pure-blood traditions made for quite the interesting read. Oh, and, of course, some gorgeous characterizations. Loved Harry's fire here. :)

Summary: Three years after Draco’s war crimes trial, the Wizengamot finally decides on his community sentence: help rebuild a village that was destroyed in the war. It sounds simple enough. Until Draco begins to unravel the mystery behind the assignment.
This fic is amazing! I LOVED Draco in this, grown up and trying to be better, but still essentially himself. And the writing in this was just gorgeous, I really felt the sinister, ominous atmosphere of the grotto.

Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, auror!harry, bodyguard!draco, hp_summersmut fest 2008

I love this Draco. He is a bit ridiculous and super funny.

Title: Pseudo
Author: dysonrules
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, sort of Draco/OMC
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 23,726
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, bottom!draco, disguise!fic
Summary: Draco runs into an interesting man during a drunken night out. Pansy slips the man Draco's address, not realizing that he is actually Harry Potter in disguise.
Things get a bit out of hand after that.
This was written by dysonrules, so you know it's going to be awesome! Disguise!fics can be a bit tricky, because of the inevitable fallout after the mask comes off, but this fic is refreshingly lighthearted. Its funny and sweet and sexy and the side characters are perfect.

Title: Baby It's You
Author: firethesound
Pairing: Draco/Harry, Harry/OMC, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,792
Content/Warnings: infidelity, dub-con, drunk!sex, MPREG, dirty talk, bathroom!sex, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, harrydracompreg 2014
Summary: Harry sometimes wished that his life wasn’t quite so prone to turmoil. Some days it felt like he couldn’t even take a piss without throwing his entire future off-course. Or, you know, have a drunken shag in a public toilet. It’s more the principle of the thing, really.
MPREG isn't a huge trope/kink for me, but I really enjoyed this author's take. I was a little worried about the angst factor with this one, but the author did a great job making the interactions, relationships, and reactions feel believable without getting too bogged down in the angst potential. The sex is super hot, and I loved how open and straight-forward Draco is in this one.

Title: Let Me See You Stripped (Down to the Bone)

Summary: "So," Malfoy said. "Are you in? Or are you out?" He turned and looked at Harry squarely.
Harry remembered the slow way Malfoy had slid his hand down his own stomach, into his pants – the outline of his long fingers gripping and stroking his own cock. The way his head had fallen back, exposing his pale throat. How he had owned them all.
He took a deep breath. "I'm in," he said.
JFC I can't even with this fic. Such a crazy awesome scenario that manages to fit within the canon!verse. This fic was so great, and I LOVED all the characters and their characterizations here (Luna was so wonderful and confused/reluctantly supportive Ron was perfect). And the sexual tension? GOD, so hot and adding the actual sex in only seemed to ramp it up. Unbelievably sexy and so much fun!

Title: Trust In A Broken Thing

Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Pansy/Ron
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 24,011
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, established relationship, memory loss, hd_erised 2014
Summary: If the ring was broken, that could only mean one thing… Harry Potter was dead.
This fic was really just so beautiful. Wonderfully written and a bit heart-wrenching in the best ways. I love the idea of auror handlers and I thought it was a lot of fun how the auror!partner trope was twisted slightly to create a dynamic that really plays to their strengths. The depth of Draco's emotions, his love for Harry and sense of loss at losing him, came across so well and I just absolutely adored Draco here.

Summary: When Draco discovers Harry Potter is his new landlord, he's convinced he's going to lose his shop. When Harry discovers Draco Malfoy's been invited on his friends' annual ski trip, he's certain his holiday is ruined. This is the story about how neither one of them is right.
Such a fun and charming fic! Loved the ski holiday and watching Draco and Harry's relationship grow and evolve. Super hot, and an adorable ending.

Summary: When Harry submits his cock photo to a renowned Cock Critiquer and gets a terrible review, he decides to take a photography class to hopefully improve his skills.
This fic!! OMG this was just a ton of fun and I could not stop smiling throughout. I love how believable Draco's job as a cock critiquer is and I really loved him as a photography teacher as well. Harry's determination and dedication to learning photography (so that he could take a better picture of his cock) was just fabulous, and I adored how light and playful the sex was.

Summary: Potter keeps dying; Draco keeps saving him.
I just adore everything about this fic! The characterizations for everybody were just so spot on, Harry and Draco especially, but Ron and Luna here are also wonderful. The way the time turner was incorporated is brilliantly done. It felt so organic and natural and worked so well with the flow of the story. Harry and Draco's relationship is also just amazing here with all the fantastic banter and snark and growing feelings and really freaking hot sex.

Summary: Draco had always thought that the ability to see the future would have saved him a lot of grief. The choices are no easier, however, when he is cursed to see an endless set of futures featuring Harry Potter.
This fic was lovely. I loved the subtle ways the visions invade Draco's life and his growing relationship with Hermione and Harry. Pansy is perfection in this, both with Draco and Hermione.

Summary: Harry is miserable and tired of being an Auror, coasting through life until he’s forced to make some changes. Spurred on by his passion for drawing and working with best-selling author Draco Malfoy, Harry develops a charm which gives children a magical, interactive reading experience. But when it’s time to test the spell, the two men find themselves trapped in a nightmarish fairy tale world. Can they escape unscathed, or is Draco right in his assertions that there is no such thing as a happily ever after?
Oh wow, this is so fantastic! Such a powerful story and I love the twist on the fairy tale trope. I thought Draco as a writer and Harry as an illustrator was very believable done and I really liked how they end up working together in this one. The pacing was so wonderful here, with the fic moving from the familiar and getting darker as they progress in their fairy tale world. I adored Harry and Draco's relationship and how they interacted with each other and how that changed over the course of them working together and being stuck together. The accompanying fairy tale is wonderful and actually answers a few questions raised in the ending of the original fic. Captivating read, and the art is really magical.

I don't usually love threesomes for my boys but this one was ridiculously hot and it worked with the plot perfectly.

Summary: When the Wizengamot insists Chief Auror Harry Potter pose for a statue for the Ministry Atrium, why are his friends reluctant to tell him who the sculptor is?
Past relationship fics can be a little hit or miss for me, as I find them often too angsty for my taste, but I thought this one was perfectly balanced. Sculptor Draco was incredibly cool and well done, and the relationship between Harry and Draco made for a beautiful read.

Summary: That night Draco dreams, and he is the ghost in his garden. He is both silvered figment and his own solid and flesh face pressing against the window, watching. Spinning and spun, haunting and haunted. Turned and turning, an open mouth with no sound.
Harry and Draco are thrown together on an investigation into a sinister political movement.
Such a wonderfully engaging fic! The writing here is gorgeous, and I LOVE Draco here. Harry is very much present, but the H/D almost feels secondary to the almost character-study of Draco. Really interesting case and just a super fantastic read!

Summary: There’s plant magic and celestial magic and dark magic and the normal magic that allows Harry to use a spell to clean his socks when Myrtle’s taken up in his laundry room again. Then there are wishes, and dreams, and love, and those are even more magical still.
Seriously amazing fic and really wonderfully written. It's funny and sweet with great characterization of Harry and Draco and some truly fantastically fitting jobs for the both of them. Their relationship evolves so perfectly and I really loved their connection. This was such a job to read, cannot recommend it enough!

Summary: Twenty-four Twenty-three men, six cities, and one unusual sexual requirement.
This was just crazy amazing. I have to confess that I don't like these kinds of shows in RL, but I loved this fic, how it manages to be sweet and sexy and touching and just a smidgeon angsty. The side characters were all amazing: Hermione was perfect, loved sneaky Ron, and Luna's commentary killed me! And the connection between Draco and Harry just jumped off the screen. Draco swearing up a storm was hilarious and I loved how much he just got Harry. AND JFC the sex was crazy hot, love love loved the dynamic!

Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, rimming, implied switching, dirty talk
Summary: It’s been 5 years since the end of the war, but less than a week since Rita Skeeter outed Harry on the front page of The Prophet — and made some rather scandalous insinuations about him and his blond former nemesis. A chance (or is it?) encounter on a street corner reveals just how much has changed… and what remains the same. An over-sized courgette, some olive oil, a bottle of wine, and Ed Kowalczyk make things extra interesting.
Really lovely, sexy fic! It gets a bit overly descriptive at times and maybe moved a little too fast, but I really just adored this confident Draco and adorably smitten Harry. And the sex was crazy hot!

Summary: Hag magic is capricious and unruly, and Harry and Draco are bound to stay by each other’s side until they can solve the riddle. In between long car trips, misty rain, and midnight star charts, they begin to understand each other.
I do love me some bonding!fics and this one did not disappoint! The cause of the bonding--a hag curse--was super interesting and clever, and the way the curse worked to bring them together and provide insight into one another was really well done. Interesting plot and a great build. :)

Summary: Harry felt lit up from inside as soon as he entered the bar. There were blokes dancing together, their bodies close to one another, not keeping a wary distance as Harry was always careful to do when he was near another man. God, he wanted this – wanted it so much he could taste it, a metallic tang of heat and desire. He suspected nothing would ever be the same again – especially when he saw who else was in the room.
This fic is really just wonderful. It's got a Harry starting to really, truly come to terms with his sexuality, and a Draco who, as per usual, drives Harry mad. The UST here is fabulous,and even better when things finally come to a head. Wonderful, gripping read, and a great ending.

Summary: “Isn’t that Draco Malfoy? He keeps looking at you, Harry.”
Gosh, this fic is so good! It starts pretty immediately after the war and goes up until that first Christmas and the author does such an amazing job with the characterizations. Harry's headspace was perfect, and really all of the interactions were awesome. I enjoyed watching Harry and the rest of the gang start to warm up to Draco, while still really acknowledging their pasts.

Summary: Only Harry Potter could manage to put on a magical collar on impulse and find himself unable to take it off again. Now following Draco’s direct orders gives him intense pleasure, and Draco has a whole heap of troubles to deal with, not least the way Potter looks when the collar has him gasping with bliss. The whole situation would test the morals of a saint... and Draco’s no saint.
This fic was seriously so good! I have such a thing for collars, and the side effects of this one were truly delicious! I loved how the issues of consent in this situation were really well covered, and seeing both Harry and Draco react to one another under these altered circumstance was great. The tension builds so beautifully between them with every command, and the ending was more than satisfying!

Summary: Malfoy's magic has run wild. But though wild magic is unpredictable and greatly feared, Harry's damned if he's going to let Malfoy rot in St Mungo's while they work out what to do with him.
JFC this fic is everything I ever wanted. I really loved the concept of wild magic and how it sort of flipped with Draco being the out-of-control one. The connection between Draco and Harry was just electric and their chemistry was fabulous. And the sex! The light D/s themes were perfect, and I liked how there was a reason for Harry's submission and how much he really loved it. Super freaking hot!

Summary: Written for The Eros Affair: Harry to Draco: I promise to go down on you. H/D, DH spoilers.
Really lovely fic with Harry running into Draco while at the playground with his children, and them feeling an instantaneous connection. I really liked Harry's headspace here, his confusion about his attraction to Draco, his strained marriage with Ginny, his love for his children. The relationship development between Draco and Harry is a little fast, but the chemistry between them is scorching. Satisfying ending, and the whole thing felt very believable with both it's ups and downs.

Summary: Harry never thought taking a job as Draco Malfoy's bodyguard was going to be easy. Add in a curse that makes Malfoy even more of an obnoxious git than usual, and Harry's got serious problems.
This was quite a funny fic. Draco gets cursed and can only speak the truth, which, as you can imagine, leads to some hilarious confrontations, especially with Harry as his hot bodyguard. Loved the concept and th emotion in this. And a lovely Luna Lovegood.
