Some HP Recs  
I've been a little remiss in my HP reccing of late. Partially because I needed a bit of a break after the holiday season, and there usually isn't a *ton* of fic posted right after the holidays. And partially because between work insanity and trying to write in my spare time, I just haven't been reading as much. But here are some fics I read and enjoyed over the past couple of months, and you can expect some hp_kinkfest recs from me once that fest wraps. :D

[James/Teddy!]Title: At The End of the Rope
Author: shiftylinguini
Pairing(s): James Sirius Potter/Teddy Lupin, background Albus/Scorpius, reference to past James/OMCs and Teddy/Victoire
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 35,258
Content/Warnings: a/b/o dynamics, alpha!teddy, temporarily-an-omega!james, heat cycles, knotting, Bottom!James, Auror!James, Auror!Teddy Lupin, auror partners, first time
Summary: Everyone presents in the springtime of their fifteenth year, and no one was more excited about this than James ― or more disappointed when it didn’t happen. But that’s okay, at twenty-two he’s now made peace with being an Absent Presentation, and with his conviction that no one in their right mind would want to be with or claim someone like him, least of all the person he really wants. He’s got his work and his right hand, and even if he sometimes thinks about what it would be like to be honest with Teddy about how he feels, he knows he couldn’t bear the rejection ― at least, that’s what he tells himself when he can’t get to sleep at night.

But all that is tested after a run-in with an overzealous admirer and a routine Auror call-out gone drastically wrong. As James is left now presenting in full as an Omega, and bound to stay in Teddy’s presence, the careful balancing act he’s built his life around grows more precarious by the second.
Eeee, this fic is just brilliant! A really fun and interesting take on the A/B/O trope and OMG this James and Teddy are just brilliant. Loved the world building, loved the characterizations, and JFC is it ever hot! Awesome read. :D


[H/D Recs!]Title: This Isn't Just A Distraction
Author: ustorycollector
Pairings: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~3,713
Content/Warnings: forced proximity, Auror!Draco, Auror!Harry, bottom!Harry, hd_owlpost 2016
Summary: Harry hates small space. Really hates them. So when he gets trapped in one with Draco Malfoy there's really only one thing that's going to happen...
Gosh, this was lovely and super sexy! Harry and Draco are Auror partners and get trapped in a closet together. Harry begins to panic, and I thought the author did a great job showing his reaction and how Draco helps him through it. And then there's closet!sex at the end! :D

Title: Six Christmases
Author: thistle_verse
Pairings: Draco/Harry, brief Harry/Ginny
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~4,802
Content/Warnings: Auror!Draco, Auror!Harry, hd_owlpost 2016
Summary: A year ago— even a few months ago— Harry would have heeded the note of warning in Malfoy’s voice. He would have been more careful. But care, he thought now, twisted and flowed with the change in landscape; like magic, it fed on a continual change of form.
Really wonderfully written and paced fic that shows the evolution of Harry's feelings towards Draco over the course of six Christmases at the Auror Department. Lovely characterizations and I really enjoyed seeing their relationship change and grow over the years.

Title: Pretty Fond of Not Very Good Ideas
Author: lq_traintracks
Pairings: Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~4,962
Content/Warnings: memory loss, Auror!Harry, semi-public!sex
Summary: Harry Peterson, Orderer Extraordinaire, and his trusty sidekick, Ray. Or: Harry's been hit with a memory charm, but it's okay because he realises he's bent for Draco Malfoy.
Really fun fic with Harry temporarily losing his memory and then seeing Malfoy and realising he really wants some of that. Super sexy and funny, with a wonderful undercurrent of poignant emotion.
