The Dresden Files Recs

I started listening to The Dresden Files book series on audiobook a couple of years ago, and the series has totally hooked me. Each one is better than the last, building on previous plot points, weaving in old and new threads, and generally just being super entertaining. As I usually do when I consume a new piece of awesome media, I went trolling for fic. Here are some of my favorites! :D

In the Notes section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "first time" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

Harry Dresden/John Marcone

Title: Sexplosion
Author: flit_df_fanfic
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 1,812
Content/Warnings: first person POV, established relationship, bottom!harry
Summary: For the prompt: Harry's magic goes wild whenever he's really enjoying himself during sexytimes. John Marcone discovers this and makes it his business to get Harry there as often as possible.
Seriously hot sex, with Marcone trying to get Harry to completely lose it. (No spoilers past book 1)

Title: Spanking
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Grenegome
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 2,349
Content/Warnings: first person POV, established relationship, spanking, implied bottom!harry, some dirty talk
Summary: For the prompt: Honestly, I would go all amazed over anything, but what I immediately think of is some big old thing with Harry taking what John's dishing out and snarling and swearing at him the whole time, but he loves it and arches into every one, and they both know it.
Oh gosh, this was fabulous. Super hot spanking fic. (I don't think this one has spoilers past book 3.)

Title: thawing out (or, the one with the hot tub sex)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] LuciaZephyr
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 2,992
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry
Summary: For the prompt: Come on people. You know how Harry never experienced a hot water bath in his adult life until White Night. Just like how others could have seduced him into their side with food instead of money, power, etc. I suspect that hot water works as well. You could throw in Hot Water!Sex if you want. XD
This is a fic with a bunch of the author's kink-meme fills, but I'm especially reccing/linking to the last chapter/fill, which is basically some crazy hot hot tub sexy! (spoilers to book 13)

Title: Frenemy
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3,232
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, first person POV
Summary: "A few instances of mutual life-saving does not a relationship make."
JFC, this is hot as hell. Pretty much the exact dynamic I love with these two. (No spoilers past book 2.)

Title: Honesty is the Best Policy
Author: flit_df_fanfic
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3,631
Content/Warnings: first person POV, truth serum, bottom!harry
Summary: For the prompt: Dresden is hit with a spell that keeps him from being able to lie. To make matters worse, there's a compulsion on the spell that makes him have to answer any question asked him. Trying to find a way to cope, Harry turns to his friends (and maybe a couple not so friends *cough, Marcone, cough, Kincaid, cough, cough*) but instead of helping, they take advantage of Harry's dilemma and proceed to ask him intense, personal questions that he would never in a million years tell the truth to.
Basically Harry gets hit with a truth spell and Marcone uses this to his advantage to find out if Harry wants him. (He does). And it's all sexy times from there. :D (No spoilers past book 3)

Title: Shadow and Blade Series (2 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] akelios
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 4,120
Content/Warnings: first person POV, outdoor!sex, semi-public!sex, bottom!harry, knife play, permanent marking
Summary: I needed to mark him. To take every mark others had left on him and change them; write my name on him with every touch.
Super hot and a little fucked up--of course it would be with Marcone involved. Loved his kink and desire and how it all played out. (I don't think there are spoilers past book 3)

Title: That Kind of Girl
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lightgetsin
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 5,794
Content/Warnings: genderswap, temporarily-a-girl!Harry, implied bottom!harry, rough sex, dirty talk
Summary: I couldn’t believe he’d done that. That was definitely not the sort of thing nice guys did to their girlfriends. Then again, John Marcone was not a nice guy, exhibit 5000.
And I was not his girlfriend.
Holy GOD this was hot as hell. Basically, Harry gets turned into a girl, and finally ends up enacting some fantasies he didn't quite realize he had. Marcone is dead sexy here, and honestly it's all just extremely hot. (I don't think there are spoilers past book 4)

Title: Ridiculous, Madcap
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lightgetsin
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 6,154
Content/Warnings: established relationship, rimming
Summary: Harry’s look of incredulous outrage was warming. “You bastard,” he said. “I should have fucking known. What, do you have a lawyer on speed dial whenever you go to bed with someone?”
“With you, no,” John said sweetly. “Only the fire department."
Oh, this fic was crazy hot! Maybe a little more romantic than I tend to prefer for these two, but super sexy. :D (I don't think there are any spoilers past book 5.)

Title: Stacked Dice
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] manic_intent
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 6,832
Content/Warnings: AU: Crossover, AU: Fusion, Good Omens Crossover/Fusion, angel!harry, demon!marcone
Summary: “I could kill you right now,” Marcone said. He always smiled a little wider when he said it, like he was joking. It used to creep me out a few centuries ago, then I just got over it. Fallen angels all tended to have their eccentricities. Particularly ones as old as Marcone.
“You could try. Or you could ask yourself, is this friendly neighbourhood angel all out of juice, or does he still have enough soulfire in his pinky finger to kick your ass?” I was bluffing—I probably couldn’t manage enough soulfire right now to gently poach a chicken. Marcone probably knew it. We’d been squabbling over this piece of the Maker's earth for a very, very long time.
Super fun Good Omens AU with Harry as an angel and Marcon as a demon. The two worlds blended wonderfully and I just loved the dynamic!

Title: Please Hang Up And Try Again
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Aja and [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 7,823
Content/Warnings: first person POV
Summary: "I'm going to need at least a dozen more roses before the chastity belt comes off."
Fabulous Harry voice this one and Marcone comes across perfectly. Great read and super hot! (I don't think there are any spoilers past book 3.)

Title: Chacun à son goût
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 8,885
Content/Warnings: car!sex
Summary: "Perhaps we'll make an aficionado of you yet."
Some gorgeous tension in this one and a really terrific flustered, turned-on Harry. :) (No spoilers past book 3.)

Title: Do Not Think It Means
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 9,804
Content/Warnings: kid!fic, first person POV, first time, bottom!harry
Summary: "Look, I'm with you on this one -- he's dumber than he looks. But we were on a mission of mercy, I swear!"
This fic picks up at the end of book 5 and I loved where the author went with things. Great build between Harry and Marcone, and the ending was very satisfying. (Spoilers for book 5, none past that.)

Title: Chevalier vs. Caveman
Author: flit_df_fanfic
Pairing: Harry/John, Harry/OMC, Harry/OFC
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 10,923
Content/Warnings: first person POV, first time, bottom!harry, spanking
Summary: Harry takes a bullet for Marcone.
Super freaking hot fic with Harry wondering if maybe he likes men, and then going out and discovering YES! Most of the sex in this one is with an OMC, but there's some hot Marcone/Harry loving at the end, don't worry. (No spoilers past book 2)

NEW: 1/9/2020*
Title: The Burned Pages
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] AloeAloe
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 14,229
Content/Warnings: forced proximity, massage!fic, rimming, bottom!harry, mild dub-con
Summary: Think you’re having a bad day? Trust me, you’re not. Find yourself abducted and magically handcuffed to Johnny Marcone, then you’re having a bad day.
Suuper hot fic with Marcone and Harry handcuffed together, and sexy times inevitably ensuing. Lovely characterizations.

Title: Twist and Shout (3 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Grenegome
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 17,213 total
Content/Warnings: first person POV, first time, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry saves the world (well, Chicago, anyway) and as usual isn't thanked for it. Instead, he gets to spend the evening in undesirable company.
Awesome series with an oblivious Harry who eventually has things laid out for him and is surprisingly intrigued. Loved the dynamic here and the sex was phenomenal. (I don't think this one has spoilers past book 5.)

Title: Crosshairs
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] manic_intent
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 20,059
Content/Warnings: AU, wizard!marcone, first person POV
Summary: Written for the Dresden Files kink meme, being an AU where Marcone also has magical powers. A murderer is getting rid of the signatories who have come to Chicago to sign Gentleman Johnny Marcone into the Accords.
Really cool fic with Marcone being a pretty powerful wizard while still being a sketchy mafia boss. Interesting plot and super fantastic connection between these two! Fun read. (Spoilers past book 5)

Title: Pet Wizard Series (5 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] TheReluctantShipper
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 24,267
Content/Warnings: AU: Alternate First Meeting, bottom!harry
Summary: In a world where Harry got Justin before Justin got him and finished his training under Bob instead of McCoy, he's a bit more willing to be Marcone's pet wizard.
He's just as likely to bite the hand that feeds him, though.
Awesome slight AU with Harry having got away from Justin before all the bad shit really went down and essentially never becoming a PI, but still ending up in Marcone's orbit. Great characterizations here.

Title: Wager
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] neveralarch
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 26,388
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: University, professor!harry, professor!john
Summary: Harry Dresden's first semester as an assistant professor of religious studies comes with its own unique challenges. Like dealing with Doctors Marcone and Vargassi of the philosophy department.
Really awesome Academia AU with a seriously great Harry voice. Loved his and Marcone's debates, and the cameos from side characters were great as well. :) (I don't think this one has spoilers past book 5.)

Title: On the Count of Three (5 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lightgetsin
Pairing: Harry/John, Harry/Kincaid/John, Harry/Kincaid
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 32,209 total
Content/Warnings: threesome, bottom!harry, spitroasting, double penetration, infidelity, rough sex, angry!sex, unhealthy relationship, knifeplay, switching, bottom!john, rape fantasy, alternating POVs, some fics in first person POV
Summary: “Put your glass down,” he said quietly. “Or throw it in my face in the next three seconds. Two. One.”
God, this series is fantastic. The first two fics are seriously beyond fucking hot, with some dommy Marcone and Kincaid and a Harry that just fucking blooms beneath them. The last three fics get a little more intense, and Harry and Marcone definitely have a fucked up relationship, but somehow it works for them. Great characterizations and some really crazy hot smut. (I don't think there are any spoilers past book 5.)

Title: Cross
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lightgetsin
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 33,878
Content/Warnings: ghost!harry, bottom!harry, first time, dub-con, ambiguous/open ending
Summary: “Because,” Dresden said, “you’re going to bring me back.” He hesitated, looking somewhat sour. “You’re the only one who can, apparently.”
Ooo, gosh, this was just fantastic. Such a wonderful post-Changes fic, with a really great Marcone. It's interesting and seriously hot and the ending is perfect, if a little bittersweet. (spoilers through book 12)

Title: Choices 'verse (2 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Kethrua
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 35,507 total
Content/Warnings: AU, bonding!fic, dub-con, bottom!harry, first person POV
Summary: In an AU to Changes, Harry sold himself to John Marcone instead of Mab. They both take a while to adjust to this. Written for the Kinkmeme, for a prompt requesting both serious treatment of the issues and smut. Contains non-explicit reference to past child abuse and rape.
Ooo, gosh, this is such a fantastic fic! Loved the concept of Harry bonding himself to Marcone instead of Mab, and the development of Harry and Marcone's relationship was just fantastic. Super hot, and the issues of consent were handled really well, I thought. (Spoilers through book 12)

Title: The Stars and Scones Bakery and Coffee Shop
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] LuciaZephyr
Pairing: Harry/John, past Harry/Susan, Harry/Elaine
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 42,863
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, baker!harry, lawyer!john, dad!john, mentions of past child abuse
Summary: In which Harry is the best baker in Chicago, but still ends up starting a few fires along the way. (revised final version)
This was wonderful! Such a fabulous AU, and Harry's voice is spot on. Completely charming. (Major spoilers past book 5)

Title: The Spirit and the Letter Series (4 fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lightgetsin
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 55,299
Content/Warnings: genderswap, temporarily-a-girl!Harry, bottom!harry, het sex, rough sex, light bondage, implied switching
Summary: "Hey, I just realized!" Bob said. "You're like a country song: you lost your house, you lost your car, you lost your job, and now you've lost your dick!"
Gosh, this series is just fantastic. It starts with Harry being temporarily turned into a girl, and I love how that ends up being sort of the catalyst that ends up driving Harry into Marcone's bed. There a ton of hot sex (with Harry as both genders) and the evolution of Harry and Marcone's relationship is just wonderful. Great characterizations, and just a really wonderful read. (Spoilers through book 12)

Title: The New Boss
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] mitsukai613
Pairing: Harry/John
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 57,942
Content/Warnings: bonding!fic, first time, attempted rape/non-con (not between main pairing), bottom!harry, first person
Summary: John is, as far as anyone knows, dead, along with his right hand Nathan Hendricks, and as such, someone new has to take over. This new guy takes an immediate interest in Johnny's Wizard, and decides to take him for himself by way of a magical device retrieved from one of Harry's many enemies.
Harry takes objection to this, of course, and with the help of his friends (who have been treating him rather a lot like some depressed maiden recently, much to his chagrin) plots how to escape this hold, and, ultimately, discover the big plot behind his capture to begin with. Along the way, though, he also begins to discover emotions for someone that he didn't quite expect.
Such an enjoyable read! Marcone "dies" and Harry has to deal with his grief as well as Marcone's replacement who is keen on getting Harry under his thumb (and in his bed). Interesting plot, and I enjoyed seeing Harry come to realize his feelings for Marcone. (Spoilers through book 9)

♥ ♥ Title: The Matter of Chicago Series (2 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] LuciaZephyr
Pairing: Harry/John, Harry/Susan
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 150,536
Content/Warnings: first time, bottom!harry, first person POV, forced proximity
Summary: I tend to turn right by instinct when given a decision. Right-handed, evocate with my right side, and try to do the right thing.
But we've all done that, haven't we? Wondered what was going down in the universe next door. How one decision would shake up everything we knew.
What happens when we turn left.
Wow, this fic is seriously fantastic!! Goes AU during book 2 with spoilers through book 4 and I just loved how the author kept some canon events and aspects, but tweaked them just enough to keep it interested and work with the concept. Marcone and Harry are both perfectly characterized and the slow build between them was absolutely glorious. Perfectly paced, with some fantastic simmering tension that builds and builds until it reaches a seriously steamy crescendo. There were originally supposed to be two other full sequels, but the author has stated they do not plan on continuing the series. A shame, because I adore this world, but luckily it reads absolutely fine on its own. (Series has major spoilers through book 3, vague spoilers through and beyond book 5.)

Harry Dresden/The Erlking

Title: Account For
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] akelios
Pairing: Harry Dresden/The Erlking
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 2,805
Content/Warnings: rimming, outdoor!sex, rough!sex bottom!harry, first person POV, non-linear timeline, rimming, biting
Summary: Cold air burned through my lungs; sharp, welcome pain. I breathed deep, taking it in, letting it fill me and make my blood sing. It was night, or what passed for night here in the Erlking's lands. The moon was full. A Hunter's Moon. What else? I'd stumbled into this little cave a few minutes ago, needing a moment to catch my breath.
Hot and gorgeously written, almost lyrical, fic. (Spoilers through book 7.)
