Rectober #1: H/D Recs  
I'm so excited that Rectober is back! I'm planning on doing a flurry of recs now, and then another batch towards the end of the month. And possible some in between- we'll see!


banner by raitala

But I figured I'd start the month off right with a handful of recs from my glorious OTP! There are a few older fics (that I finally got around to reading/rereading) and a few newer fics that my mega-talented f-list posted during September. I've been in a major H/D mood lately. Well, I always am, really, but the feels have been extra strong this past month, and I'm uber excited for hd_fan_fair tomorrow!

[H/D Recs]Title: Draco/Rest
Authors: zeitgeistic
Pairings: Harry/Draco, past Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,661
Content/Warnings: past character death (Not H/D), old age, estrangement, marriage!fic (sort of), bottom!draco, implied switching
Summary: Harry’s estranged husband has never really been estranged to him.
This is a heartbreaking little thing, but just so beautifully written.

Title: Leather Bound Histories (Part two of the The Vanishing Department Series)
Author: dicta_contrion
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,188
Content/Warnings: established relationship, unusual careers, face-fucking, dirty talk
Summary: “Like the time you Vanished your favourite cock ring?”
“More like the time I Vanished my old Quidditch leathers.”
“The first time or the second?”
“The first.”
A timestamp to The Vanishing Department, occurring halfway between Chapter 8 (drinks, Dickens and bedrooms) and the Epilogue.
Wonderfully sexy update to one of my favorite H/D fics! The sex was super hot, and the underlying emotion made everything even sexier.

Title: Unexpected Turn
Author: oakstone730
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Victor Krum, mention of Ginny/Neville
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,881
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, road trips, american!harry, mechanic!harry, switching, rimming, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, some dirty talk, first person POV
Summary: English real estate developer Draco Malfoy is in America to find his long lost cousin and escape a scandal. When his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, his trip takes an unexpected turn. Non-Magical AU.
OMG, this fic is so amazing! I love a good Non-Magical AU, but I'm pretty picky about them, and this one is just perfection! The author manages to include so many characters and so many little canon events and details in such fun and creative ways that it's just such a joy coming across them all. I adore the juxtaposition of rich, high-class Draco and low-brow, American mechanic Harry. The chemistry between these two is just electric, and JFC sexy mechanic Harry is everything I ever wanted in life. The sex is incredibly hot, and the ending has just the right amount of sweet hopefulness. Really fabulous read, cannot recommend enough!

Title: Here and Now
Author: favicon Morgan_Elektra
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, mention of past Harry/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,829
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!

Title: He Was He and I Was Bunny
Author: bryoneybrynn
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Blaise, brief Harry/Charlie, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 37,345
Content/Warnings: eighth year, animagus!fic, first time, rimming, bottom!draco, implied switching, hd inspired 2009
Summary: The war is over and “eighth year” is about to begin at Hogwarts. But for Harry and Draco, nothing is quite the same. Harry’s looking for an escape, Draco’s looking for a friend. Does a little black bunny hold the answers for both of our boys?
Such a lovely eighth year fic with Harry becoming an adorable bunny animagus, and then Draco stumbling upon him and taking a liking to him. Harry and Draco were both really great in this, and watching their feelings grow and develop was wonderful. The sex was super hot and meaningful, and the whole fic was just a joy to read.

Title: On a Clear Day
Author: saras_girl
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 41,519
Content/Warnings: EWE, unusual jobs
Summary: Draco Malfoy is waiting for his real life to begin, and it appears that he’s not the only one. Coffee, charity, and the wisdom of the elderly.
This fic is such a delight! Harry as a shut-in was a very interesting read, and Draco here is fantastically characterized. I loved his voice, and his banter with Harry, and his humour in general as he worked to restore the Malfoy name. Sort of a gentle story, but so lovely, and a really wonderful connection and build between Harry and Draco.

Title: Before the World Was Made
Author: daftfear
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 42,576
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, accidental bonding!fic, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco has done everything in his power to leave the past behind him. He’s established himself a successful business and built a reputation around the quality of his work and the breadth of his knowledge. But when aurors show up at his shop one afternoon, seeking his expertise on a peculiar item of questionable origins, they completely overthrow the precarious balance in Draco’s life. Trust Potter to bring danger and destruction in his wake, along with a painful reminder of all the things Draco is trying to forget.
Bonding!fics are one of my favorite tropes and this one was really wonderful! I loved Draco here, and watching him come to terms with the bond, fighting it but also writing it at the same time, was great. The sexual tension between them is really fabulous and the plot was interesting and well-paced. Fun read. :)

What a fabulous start to Rectober! I've read a couple (He was he and I was bunny, Draco/Rest) and they were indeed great reads, I think I'm gonna re-read bryoneybrynn's fic tonight :)

*squeezes* you tight. thank you, thank you for such a wonderful rec!

I haven't read some of the others on the list and need to add them to my TBR - and Sara's Girl's Clear Day - I need to put that on my re-read list! Such a wonderful story.

You're welcome, hon! It really is such a fabulous fic!

Yeah, I'm fairly positive I read On a Clear Day ages ago, but I couldn't remember the specifics, so it went on the reread list, and it was such a joy to reacquaint myself with. :D

Right? I read it when I first got into fandom (before I started keeping rec lists) and it's been on my reread list for awhile now. Super happy I finally made the time for it, as it was just as delightful as I remember it being! :D
