H/D Fan Fair 2016 Recs  
hd_fan_fair's Pet Fair posted their reveals over the weekend, so it's time for some recs! This is one of my favorite fests of the year, because the rotating themes always offer up some fun variety, and there never fails to be some truly amazing fic. These are just a few of my absolute favorites, but I absolutely recommend also checking out their masterlist to see the other gems on offer. :D



Title: Professor Potter and his Magical Menagerie
Author: dracogotgame
Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Animal: Fire Crabs, Cornish Pixies, Bicorns, Unicorns (mentions of Bowtruckles, Fairies, Doxies, Flitterbys and a very special Porlock).
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,530
Warnings/Content: professor!harry, professor!draco, hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: Harry Potter descends on Hogwarts with a horde of magical beasts. Professor Malfoy is not amused.
Oh, this fic is so much fun! Draco is fantastic as a strict, but fair, professor (though of course, he thinks he's being terrifying) and Harry is dead sexy as the flirtatious Care of Magical Creatures Professor. Draco's voice was really great here, and I loved watching Harry wear Draco down. ;)

Title: Partners of the Four-Legged Variety
Author: carpemermaid
Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Animal: Crup
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,977
Warnings/Content: glasses!Draco, unusual jobs, forced proximity, auror!harry, praise kink, dirty talk, bottom!harry, rimming, implied switching, *my prompt, hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: “Training starts in the home, Potter, so your new Crup and I will need to stay with you for a few weeks while I show you how to properly train and bond with him.”
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.

Title: Here Be Dragons
Author: birdsofshore
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Draco/OMCs, brief mention of past Harry/OMC
Animal: Dragon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,870
Warnings/Content: D/s themes, Auror!Harry, bottom!harry, rough sex, dirty talk, some face-fucking, hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
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!

Title: Under the Same Sky
Author: writcraft
Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Animal: Dog
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 38,695
Warnings/Content: Puppy play (non-sexual), light Bondage, First Time, Collars, switching, bottom!draco, mostly bottom!harry, auror!harry, past relationship, light praise!kink, light D/s, hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: "It wasn’t…” Malfoy stops and there’s something tentative in his voice, the hint of an apology in his words. “It was never about you, Potter."
With memories of the war still fresh on his mind and Malfoy back in London, Harry's past refuses to stay buried. As Harry tries to grapple with life and love, Malfoy seems determined to make him confront his deepest desires and Harry has to try not to lose his heart all over again.
This fic was seriously so good!! I know puppy play is definitely not everybody's thing, and it's not something I generally look for in fic, but it was so wonderfully written here and I highly recommend you give this a chance, even if it's not a kink you tend to read. It's not even about sex, really, it's about Harry wanting to let go, needing a place where he can feel safe and loved and let go of all the chaos in his mind. The kink negotiation here is wonderful, watching Draco slowly coax Harry out of his shell and getting him to admit his desires. The two of them fit together so perfectly. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the sex, which is seriously smoking hot on top of everything else. Seriously, give this fic a shot, you won't be disappointed!

Title: The Darkness Before the Dawn
Author: renrenren3
Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, background Ron/Hermione
Animal: Nundu
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~55,600
Warnings/Content: case!fic, auror!harry, bottom!draco, hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: A mysterious creature is loose in London, stalking and killing people. Auror Harry Potter requests the help of a Liaison from the Beast Division and gets saddled with Draco Malfoy. Will they be able to stop the creature before it claims more lives?
Awesome case!fic! A savage beast is loose in London and it's up to Auror Potter and Beast Division Liason Malfoy to find and stop it. I loved the relationship between Draco and Harry here, the antagonism that turns into a wary trust. The characterizations are great and I really enjoyed watching their growing feelings against the fascinating backdrop of the case plot. Really engaging read!

Thank you so much for this lovely rec. As I mentioned in my response to your comment, I really appreciated the thoughtful way you framed the rec in response to the kink which definitely isn't everybody's thing! I know from the comments I received that a few people decided to give it a go after seeing it recommended, so thank you for that. I'm so pleased you enjoyed it <3
