HD Smoochfest 2015 Recs  
Reveals went up yesterday for hd_smoochfest so I figured it was time for me to round up some of my favorites from the fest! This year's songspiration theme was super interesting and produced a really wide variety of fics. These are some of the submissions I loved best, but there is a whole host of other goodies to check out on their masterlist.

Title: All My Hours
Author: cassie_black12
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione, Pansy/Blaise, Ginny/Neville, past Harry/Ginny
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~4,600
Content/Warnings: breakup!fic, hd smoochfest 2015
Summary: Dragged to a Ministry ball by Hermione, Harry had thought things couldn't get any worse. Then he spotted Draco twirling Astoria Greengrass around the dance floor, and he knew how wrong he was.
Gorgeously written fic dealing with Draco and Harry's recent break-up. This fic gave me a lot of feels and seeing all of Harry's friends rally around to give him the kick in the pants he needed to go and get Draco back was really wonderful.

Title: An Aching Soul
Author: writcraft
Pairing: Harry/Draco, mention of Harry/OMCs, implied Ron/Hermione
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 14,713
Content/Warnings: recreational drug use, club!fic, bottom!harry, but heavily implied bottom!draco as well, first person POV, hd smoochfest 2015
Summary: I can’t help but wonder if Potter’s really as fine as he claims to be. There’s something strange about seeing the vanilla hero of the wizarding world eye-fucking someone across a crowded bar before slipping off into the shadows - Draco Malfoy escapes to the Muggle world to avoid his parents, memories of the war and Harry Potter. However, some things prove harder to escape than others as Draco realises when his favourite Muggle haunt is rudely invaded by a post-war Harry who is struggling to cope with grief, growing up and the battle with his inner demons.
Wonderful fic that takes the club!fic trope, but it gives it so much edge and complexity. Watching Harry and Draco cope with the war in different slightly destructive ways, and seeing how that brings them together was really wonderful, and I really enjoyed watching the whole thing evolve. Plus it was hot as hell. :D

Title: The Art of Perfection
Author: create_serenity
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Rating: R (though I think PG-13 is probably more apt)
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.

Title: Make My Demons Run
Author: lauren3210
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,072
Content/Warnings: Post-war, pre-8th year, bottom!harry, hd smoochfest 2015
Summary: After giving evidence in defence of Draco at his trial, suddenly Potter is everywhere he turns as he completes his community service. Draco hadn't expected any of it, nor had he expected those long buried feelings he'd once had to come rising back to the surface. He definitely didn't expect what happened next.
Really lovely fic that takes place immediately at the war with the rebuilding of Hogwarts. I loved Draco's POV here, and the author did a fabulous job showing Draco's past and painting a picture of the environment Draco grew up in. The development of Draco and Harry's relationship was lovely, and the sex was hot and sweet.

Title: With a Candle to Guide Me
Author: daftfear
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione, Bill/Fleur
Word Count: 29,238
Rating: NC-17
Content/Warnings: dark themes including attempted suicide, creature!fic, bottom!harry, werewolf!draco, desk!sex, first person POV, hd smoochfest 2015
Summary: Draco wakes up in a nightmare, caught in the horror that’s haunted him since childhood. Desperate and trying to make sense of all that’s happened, Draco finds the only person who seems to want to give him answers is Potter. But being near Potter holds questions too—ones Draco isn’t sure he wants to ask. Even if it means turning down a way back to solid ground.
I love werewolf!Draco fics and this fic is the perfect example of why. The writing here is gorgeous and the way the werewolf transformation is described with Draco's enhanced smelling ability and his new urges is just fantastic. I adored getting inside Draco's head here, and watching him come to terms with his condition, and his relationship not only with Harry, but with the fabulous side cast of character was marvelous. Plus the sex was unbelievably hot.


Title: Starry Eyed
Artist: isinuyasha
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: PG-13

Title: Beneath the Rising Moon

Rating: PG
