H/D Pottermore Fair Recs  
The 2015 H/D Pottermore Fair over at hd_fan_fair has officially wrapped up! This was a really interesting fest, and while I know a lot of people have mixed feelings on the Pottermore site, I thought it was a cool way to take some of this extra content JKR has provided and make it our own. :D There were some really cool prompts which lead to some super clever submissions. I definitely commend checking out the masterlist for more, but some of my favorites are below!

The Harry/Draco


Title: No Regrets
Author: aome
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8,949
Inspired by Pottermore Entry: B3. Cokeworth
Warnings/Content: eighth year, hd fan fair's pottermore fair 2015
Summary: After agreeing to clear out Snape's house on Spinner's End, Harry decides to ask Draco Malfoy to tag along. He didn't realize how much Draco would help him with this task... nor what effect Draco's presence would have on him.
Lovely fic! Harry and Draco felt very believable here, and I loved the thoughtful tone as Draco and Harry sort through Snape's life and their own feelings.

Title: One Night at the Leaky
Author: birdsofshore
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Hermione/Ron, Seamus/Dean
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~12,500
Inspired by Pottermore entry: #C4. Gamp's Old Gregarious Beer
Warnings/Content: Post Hogwarts, drinking games, Truth or Dare, drunkenness, hd fan fair's pottermore fair 2015
Summary: Harry should have known better than to accept a drunken dare. Especially when Malfoy was sitting right there, looking like that and wearing those bloody tight trousers.
Oh this was such a lovely read! I loved the pub nights, the camaraderie between everybody was just so much fun. Harry's POv was fabulous, and I loved seeing Draco through his eyes. Really just a wonderfully fun fic.

Title: Against All Odds
Author: momatu
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, mention of past Draco/OMC, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 53,838
Inspired by Pottermore Entry: B2. Beauxbatons Academy of Magic
Warnings/Content: professor!draco, language!kink, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, *my prompt, hd pottermore fair 2015
Summary: Beauxbatons is hosting the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe, and Harry has promised to enroll Teddy as his birthday present. Meanwhile, Draco is stuck in his office, putting together the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe during, when he should be enjoying summer holidays.
Really wonderful fic with Draco as Quidditch instructor at Beauxbatons, organizing a Quidditch camp. And, of course, Harry comes along to enroll Teddy and gets roped into helping out and then ~feelings~ happen. I love the sense of atmosphere here - the various places in France were lovely, as was the use of French throughout. The connection between Draco and Harry was wonderful, and I really enjoyed how adult and mature they both were. Fabulous, sexy read with an extremely satisfying ending.

Title: Afternoon on the Time-Turning Tracks
Artist: wystarwy
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry
Rating: G
Medium: Digital
Inspired by Pottermore entry: B11. Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, D13. Time-Turner
Warnings/Content: hd pottermore fair 2015
Summary: Some platforms lead to other places, and some lead to other times. Draco Malfoy is joined in his attempt to fix his past by none other than Harry Potter.
This is so freaking cool! The concept is awesome, the composition is fabulous, and the way the artist captured Harry and Draco's expressions and body language is just brilliant. Seriously beautiful work.

Title: Won't you take a breath and dive in deep
Artist: phoenixacid
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry
Rating: PG
Medium: Pencil and PS
Inspired by Pottermore entry: D7 - Pensieves
Warnings/Content: hd pottermore fair 2015
Summary: Harry dives into the memory Draco left him.
Just beautiful. I love how the coloring and faded sketchy quality really emphasizes the past/memory aspect. Harry and Draco are both just gorgeous here, and the whole thing is super lovely.

Me too! I still find it quite telling that even when you are in anonymous fests that I had no clue you were participating in, I still manage to find and love your fic. :D

Oo, yes, the Beauxbatons fic was so good! Lots of fun. :)

I have very mixed feelings about Pottermore, but this is exactly how I felt about this theme for the fan fair :)

Yes, I agree. I definitely have mixed feelings as well, but I really thought the fest was a cool idea, personally. :D
