November is one of my favorite months, and it was made even better by the fact that there were several fantastic fests to follow this last year, one of which was serpentinelion's H/D Glompfest. This is a seriously awesome fest, where the many talented writers and artists in the H/D fandom create works prompted by and dedicated to the fans, cheerleaders, beta's, and commenters. I consider myself fairly active in this fandom as far as consuming fic goes, but, as somebody with zero artistic talent, it can be difficult to feel like a true participant, which is one of the reasons this fest is so great! I put in a prompt this year and got a seriously amazing fic that just happened to completely coincidentally post on my birthday! It was a fantastic surprise and it gave me even more happy feels for this wonderful fest. My very favorites are below but you can check out the glompfest tag, which should have all of this years entries!
Title: Morning, P.D.M.V!
Warning(s): Well, tits here and there, sexual harassment everywhere?
Notes: comic, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: It's all her fault! She and her stupid mouth!!! Someone please tell me a way to kill a ghost.........
This comic was super funny and so lovely.
Title: Like Son, Like Father.
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Lucius/Narcissa
Word Count: 2,328
Warning(s): Smut of the het and slash varieties. Involuntary voyeurism. Dirty talk. Bit of silliness.
Notes: marriage!fic, voyeurism, dirty talk, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: Draco initiates Harry in a longheld Malfoy tradition and welcomes him to the family.
Super hot and funny, with a Draco that is very casual about getting caught in the act.
Title: Bare Feet, Giant Squid, and One Perfect Moment
Word count: 4,400
Warnings: Not much. A bit of swearing and groping. Even the squid behaves himself. This one’s all fluffy goodness. I know, I’m surprised, too.
Notes: eighth year, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: Gryffindor may be the House of the brave but Harry’s feeling a bit nervous. It’s one thing to face a dragon or a Dark Lord. It’s quite another to make a move on the bloke who’s been your nemesis for the last eight years...
This is the sweetest thing! I love the cooperation between all the houses and Draco's determination to see the squid.
Title: Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Word Count: 7,585
Notes: auror!harry, auror!draco, bottom!draco, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: Harry wasn't the only one in denial or as said best by Meredith on Grey's Anatomy: Denial: it's not just a river in Egypt. It's a freaking ocean.
I could not stop smiling while I read it, especially when Harry shot Draco! OMG Draco's reactions were so perfect!
Title: A Very Determined Universe
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, Pansy/Neville, Ginny/Luna
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 9,100
Notes: bonding!fic, established relationship, professor!draco, bottom!draco, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: Draco is determined that his first time with Harry will go absolutely right. That means checking all the circumstances to make sure they don’t get accidentally telepathically bonded, like all their friends. No unexpected astronomical conjunction, ritual they didn’t mean to perform, or hidden creature heritage is going to make things go wrong for them.
I loved all the different ways their friends had accidentally bonded and the surprise at the end was too sweet. And poor Harry, so forgetful!
Title: Best Laid Plans
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 9,100
Warning(s): light dub-con, light bondage, auror!harry, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: After the war, Harry’s life is going exactly according to plan. All that is about to change.
My prompt! This was an amazing fic with a George/Draco friendship, an AMAZINGLY perfect animagus form for George, and some great UST between Draco and Harry! :)
Title: With Born Tenacity
Word Count: 34,700
Notes: bottom!draco, implied switching, memory loss, disguise!fic, auror!harry, hd glompfest 2013
Summary: His bruised and bloody body was fished from the Mediterranean Sea with only a wand and a single key as a clue to his identity. Even his name was a mystery. Did he dare to trust the man who found him lying on the beach?
No surprise this was amazing! Dysonrules does a great job with disguise!fic and this one was especially exciting with memory loss, polyjuice, ministry plots, false murder accusations, and cameos from some slytherin and gryffindor friends! Harry and Draco's chemistry in this fic is fantastic and Draco's interactions with everybody are perfect
