August HP Recs  
Not a ton of HP reading this month. Lots of writing and betaing and modding though. :D

[H/D Recs!]Title: the keys to your kingdom
Author: thistle_verse
Pairing: Draco/Harry, past Draco/Astoria
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,594
Content/Warnings: Auror!Harry, Hit Wizard!Draco, bottom!harry, implied switching, hd_tropes 2016
Summary: It was nothing so elegant as fucking, the first time they came together. It was teeth just a little too sharp— against a collarbone, on the right-side curve of a jaw, drawing blood from the plushest part of a bottom lip. It was the doorframe digging into the curve his spine was making of its own volition: closer, harder, more. Two hundred pain receptors per square inch in the human body and it was nothing but background noise in the explosion, the revelation, that was Harry Potter’s body against his.
Really lovely fic with Harry and Draco "just fooling around" but of course, with these two, it's never as simple as that. The writing was beautiful, and it was great seeing little snapshots of Harry and Draco's relationship over the years as Draco finally realizes his true feelings for Harry.

Title: Erosmancy
Author: astolat
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: R
Word Count: 11,057
Content/Warnings: AU: Howarts Era, outsider POV, sixth year AU, dub-con
Summary: Blaise was immune to whatever it was people usually felt around his mother, for which he was profoundly grateful, since no one needed an Oedipal complex on quite that spectacular a scale, but that didn’t mean he didn’t have a thorough respect for her gift.
Super fun and clever fic with Draco being an Erosmancer (think Veela allure, but with added magical power) and, of course, Blaise's mother is one as well and immediately recognizes that steps need to be taken. I really liked Blaise's outsider POV, and the whole thing was such a cool and interesting read!

Title: Arctic Fox
Author: scrtkpr
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, non-graphic Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Content/Warnings: first time, bottom!draco, hd_holidays 2007
Summary: “Isn’t that Draco Malfoy? He keeps looking at you, Harry.”
Gosh, this fic is so good! Another oldie that I read ages ago and only now got around to rereading (thanks kerrilee75 for the rec!). 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.


[Trio Era!]Title: Ivory
Author: yeaka
Pairings: Cormac McLaggen/Colin Creevey
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~4,000
Content/Warnings: AU everybody lives, AU: Crossover (kind of), Say Yes to the Dress crossover, established relationship, cross-dressing, semi-public sex, partially-clothed sex, wall!sex, bottom!colin
Summary: Cormac takes his Colin wedding dress shopping.
This is such an unusual pairing but it totally works here! Cormac is fantastically self-involved and in character, but you can still totally see the love he has for Colin and how desperately he wants to spoil him. And Colin clearly adores Cormac and has found a partner who more than appreciates his worshipful tendencies. Sexy, fun wedding dress fittings, some unfortunately disapproving parents, and crazy hot dressing room sex round out this surprising and enjoyable little fic.


[Cross Gen!]Title: Calan Mai
Author: femmequixotic
Pairing: Draco/Severus, past Harry/Draco, background Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 10,045
Content/Warnings: auror!draco, car!sex, hds_beltane 2013
Summary: When Harry Potter finds a puzzling case photo, Draco must go to Wales to investigate.
Really lovely fic with Draco having been in love with Severus since Hogwarts, and then finding out that he's alive. I loved Draco's POV and the depth of his emotion for Severus was wonderfully real. Their chemistry was palpable, and the ending was lovely and satisfying.

I love that Cormac/Colin fic, too! :D

And Arctic Fox, I know! I read it a couple of months ago I think and I loved it! :D

So great!! Not a pairing I'd ever considered before, but they fit so well together! :D

Yes, Artic Fox was great! I know I read it a long time ago, but I sort of put off rereading it, because it's not on AO3 and I kept forgetting about it TBH...LOL!

Ooo great recs! There are at least two I haven't read before and they have certainly been added to my list!
