Draco Tops Harry 2016 Recs  
dracotops_harry posted their reveals this past weekend, and, as it's one of my most favorite of fests, I figured I'd share a few recs. These are just a few of the things I loved, but I definitely recommend checking out the masterlist for more awesome submissions!

Title: Death Dreams
Author: writcraft
Pairing: Draco/Harry, mentions of Draco/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,507
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, first time, bottom!harry, mild non-linear timeline, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: Draco likes to keep things casual, or at least he did before Harry Potter barged back into his life.
This fic is wonderful! Lovely writing and a fabulous connection between Harry and Draco. I love the slight twists and turns in this one, and watching these two slightly broken boys come together was beyond lovely. Satisfying and super hot!

Title: Late Bloomers
Author: thistle_verse
Pairing: Draco/Harry, past Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,979
Content/Warnings: epilogue-compliant, past relationship, auror!harry, unusual careers, bottom!harry, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: Harry always thought he had a pretty satisfying array of sexual fantasies, until he stumbles upon the Mirror of Erised again and sees himself getting banged senseless by Draco Malfoy. Now he can't stop thinking about it, and that summer almost twenty years ago when he'd come to know Malfoy very well indeed.
WOW, let me tell you, this fic is fantastic! The writing here is really beautiful and incredibly moving. The characterizations feel so true and I loved seeing the relationships and interactions. Watching Harry and Draco come together again after so many years, seeing the ways they'd changed and grown, well, it was such a treat. Seriously worth a read!

Title: Newts
Author: astolat
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 13,760
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, professor!draco, auror!harry, professor/student relationship, desk!sex, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: "I’m twenty-eight!" Harry said. "I’ve been an Auror for ten years! You want me to go back to Hogwarts now?"
Oh, this fic was tons of sexy fun! Harry has to go back to Hogwarts for ~reasons~ and of course, Draco is one of the professors he has to impress. Which doesn't go too well...until it starts going really, really well. But seriously, this fic as it all--interesting politics, childish pranks, and loads of super hot sex! Definitely enjoyable. :)

Title: Moneymaker
Author: dicta_contrion
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,616
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, dub-con, face-fucking, dirty talk, light praise!kink, bottom!harry, window!sex, light D/s, mild suit!kink, *my prompt, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: As a top trader, Draco has power and money, suits and cars, houses and good champagne - everything a person could want. So when Auror Potter comes looking for help, Draco can't think of anything that might persuade him to lend a hand.
Well...maybe one thing.
Oh my goodness this fic is awesome! Dead fucking hot with all kinds of delicious things like dub-con and face-fucking and dirty talk, with a hint of praise!kink and suit!kink to boot! I love the idea of Muggle-living Draco who isn't just barely making it by working in some coffee shop, but seriously living large with champagne and private jets and fancy gadgets. Draco's voice here is wonderful, and the banter between him and Harry is seriously delightful. The ending does living things rather open ended, but I thought it worked great with the fic and left me free to imagine all kinds of delicious future possibilities. Wonderful read all around.

Title: A Better Bargain Driven
Author: lomonaaeren
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,376
Content/Warnings: AU: HBP, AU: Dumbledore Lives, dub-con bordering on non-con, dark themes, violence/torture, non-consensual potions use, first time, bottom!harry, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: Two years of war. Draco’s forgotten what it’s like to want something possible. But now, he has two things: the possibility of freedom from the Dark Lord, and Harry Potter’s arse. Perhaps not in that order.
This fic was so interesting! I'm pretty particular about H/D AUs, and I thought this one did a really excellent job of explaining what was the same, and what had changed. There are definitely some darker themes in this one, and the sex starts out as extremely dubious, but I really enjoyed watching things evolve and develop between Harry and Draco. The world here was really fascinating and I thought the ending was perfect.

Title: Higher and Higher (Temptation)
Author: birdsofshore
Pairing: Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,482
Content/Warnings: first person POV, auror!harry, cursebreaker!draco, collars, dub-con, bottom!harry, light D/s, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: Only Harry Potter could manage to put on a magical collar on impulse and find himself unable to take it off again. Now following Draco’s direct orders gives him intense pleasure, and Draco has a whole heap of troubles to deal with, not least the way Potter looks when the collar has him gasping with bliss. The whole situation would test the morals of a saint... and Draco’s no saint.
This fic was seriously so good! I have such a thing for collars, and the side effects of this one were truly delicious! I loved how the issues of consent in this situation were really well covered, and seeing both Harry and Draco react to one another under these altered circumstance was great. The tension builds so beautifully between them with every command, and the ending was more than satisfying!

Title: Good Boy
Artist: apriicat
Rating: NC-17
Medium: Digital - Photoshop cs5 + wacom tablet
Content/Warnings: comic, praise!kink, D/s dynamics, dom!draco, sub!harry, bottom!harry, draco tops harry 2016
Summary: Harry is Draco's good boy. Always such a good boy
Holy HELL is this hot! Dom!Draco and praise!kink is 100% my jam, and this whole thing is gorgeously drawn. Plus, there is a mind-meltingly hot frame of Draco's hand splayed over Harry's throat that is going to haunt me for awhile.

Thanks for these recs. They all sound so promising! I'm so far behind, the only fic I've read so far was "Higher and Higher (Temptation)". Must read the others and soon! :)
wicked smut goddessgracerene on May 12th, 2016 08:09 pm (UTC)
Well, if you only read one, that's a good one to pick! But I highly recommend all of these (and, of course, my own!). If you're looking for a place to start, these fics all blew me away. :)
