Title: The Prize
Word Count: ~2,370
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: Historical, AU: Pirates, pirate!harry, bottom!harry
Summary: Captain Potter has kidnapped the son of Lord Malfoy for ransom. Things don't go as planned.
Super fun and sexy AU. The author manages to convey so much in so few words, though I easily could have read so much more in this 'verse.
Title: A Little Bit Unprofessional
Word Count: 2,600
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magic, masseur!harry, hp kinkfest 2014
Summary: Harry’s new client enjoys Harry’s massage a little bit more than everyone else. Surprisingly, so does Harry.
This really is so wonderful! I love a good massage fic, and this one was perfect, with all the sensuality and sexual tension. I actually really like that they don't end up having sex right away, the implications were so much sexier. And love the ending!
Title: Defined Parameters
Word Count: 4,081
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: Fusion, AU: Sci-Fi, star trek: voyager fusion, light D/s dynamics, hate!sex, kind of boss/employee
Summary: Harry is a security officer on a ship stuck in the far end of the Delta Quadrant. Malfoy is the Maquis First Officer they tentatively have an alliance with. If they're going to spend the next 70,000 lightyears together, they need to define the parameters of their power. They just so happen to define it on the Holodeck, during a bout of Turkish oil wrestling.
Super cool Star Trek: Voyager fusion! (More fun if you're familiar with that canon, but definitely not at all a requirement to understand this fic!) The characterizations and dynamics here were spot-on and I really enjoyed how the author managed to fuse the two universes together. Super hot (um, I humbly request more oil wrestling in fic!!) and one of those universes I could absolutely read more in (though it was very satisfying as is)!
Title: Every Kingdom
Word Count: ~7,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: Royalty, AU: Historical, first time, hd_erised 2019
Summary: Every kingdom needs a prince. Every prince needs a good and useful knight. Draco and Harry play their parts and renegotiate some borders while they’re at it.
Truly gorgeous royalty AU, with some beautiful prose, a lovely build, and a fabulous connection between Harry and Draco!
Title: Interpreting Draconis
Word Count: 11,043
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magic, disability!fic, unusual job, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco, the Deaf son of a wealthy businessman, has always had the best of everything, including a habit for rapid signing and a reputation for having a short fuse. When his father disappears, the interpreters who have been on the receiving end of Draco's attitude and temper refuse to work for him. Enter Harry, our 'new on the block' interpreter with a heart of gold, exemplary skills, and a few secrets in his pocket.
Not normally a fan of disability fics, but this one was so beautifully written, and its a non-magic AU, so the dynamic is different. Really beautifully written, with Harry's parents' deaths being relatively recent, and him dealing with that pain.
Title: Yorkshire Puddings
Word Count: 14,361
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, lawyer!harry, unusual job
Summary: After an unexpected encounter in a supermarket, Harry’s Christmas takes an interesting turn of events.
This is just such a sweet, fluffy fic.
Title: Noodles, Soup, and Chicken
Word Count: 5,121, 6,541, and 5,568 (17,230 total)
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: University, bottom!draco
Summary: It's dark. They're drunk. And tangled on a bed like noodles.
Set in Ohio at University, Harry's from California, Draco is from Britain. Not fantastically written and quite OOC, but a guilty pleasure fic of mine. Being a recent American college grad, the first fic just feels so realistic, and the sex is dirty hot. The last two fics get a bit mushy for my taste, but still good.
Title: Black Coffee on a Lonely Night
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Astoria, past Draco/Others
Word Count: 21,658
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: Sport, AU: Coffee Shop, politician!harry, bisexual Draco, character death (Astoria), past open relationship, brief het sex, kid!fic, implied bottom!draco, ownficfest 2009
Summary: Draco owns a café in the city. Harry's a MP who comes in every morning, newspapers in one hand, BlackBerry in the other, and orders a triple espresso macchiato
Another one of those amazing fics I read and loved when I was still lurking; I finally got around to a reread and it was just as glorious as I remembered! Both non-magical and first person POV which are things that I tend not to read very often, but it's Femme, so they were brilliantly done. Draco's voice here is absolutely perfect, and I adored every single character. Plus, the whole thing felt incredibly British, which I always love.
♥ Title: Unexpected Turn
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Victor Krum, mention of Ginny/Neville
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!
Word Count: 30,354
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: Historical, bottom!draco, prince!draco
Summary: Harry is a false knight given the charge of a royal prince. Neither of them are happy with the arrangement and only time will tell if Harry's duplicity will be discovered. Based loosely on "A Knight's Tale".
Fabulously written and super fun! The world is wonderfully built here and I love the evolution of their relationship.
Title: The Pirate and the Prince
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Cedric & Harry/Roger Davies, background Ron/Hermione, Neville/Ginny
Word Count: 49,240
Warnings/Content: AU: Historical, AU: Non-Magical, AU: Pirates, pirate!Harry, identity porn, first time, barebacking, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, switching, hd_fan_fair 2019
Summary: Draco can’t believe that fate and circumstance have made him a stowaway on the Master of Death’s ship. He doesn’t know what’s worse—the dread pirate’s legendary vendetta against the aristocracy, or the fact that his captor is the most infuriating yet irrefutably fascinating man Draco has ever met.
Oh my goodness, this fic was just BRILLIANT! I'm honestly not always the biggest fan of historical/non-magical AUs for HP, but this one was so fantastic and sucked me in from the get-go. Fantastic writing, gorgeous characterizations, and chemistry that sizzles! I absolutely adore the way the author incorporated canon characters/details/events throughout--they were like little Easter eggs that made me smile every time they popped up! Definitely gave me all the harlequin romance feels, in the best kind of way, and the whole thing honestly FLEW by, I couldn't believe it was almost 50k! Definitely recommend! OH, and I can't forget the art, which is absolutely gorgeous and fits the fic so perfectly, I was blown away!
♥Title: Loosen Up My Buttons and Payment in Post-Its
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 4,318 and 79,968
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, lawyer!draco, musician!harry, song!fic, switching, bottom!draco, mostly bottom!harry
Summary: Draco tries to convince a band junkie Harry that he's worth his time.
So this fic is kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, and what got me started on non-magic AUs. It's a bit of a song fic, but nothing too obnoxious, and it's super fun and the sex is ridiculously hot. And I love Blaise so much in this fic!
Title: Life, As Experienced Through Your Fingers (Locked on AO3)
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, various other
Word Count: 110,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, references to past attempted rape, boarding school, musical!draco, musical!harry, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco Malfoy loves boarding school almost as much as he hates them. But this new school for the arts provides him with more challenges and happiness than he ever expected to experience.
Interesting and well written. I love the creative use of the canon characters. There is a sequel, but it's unfinished and I haven't read it.
Word Count: 125,817
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, angst, past child abuse, boarding school, bottom!draco, first time
Summary: Harry Potter was not sent to Hogwarts at age 11 as his parents intended. Instead, when an altercation with his uncle turns violent, he is sent to St. Brutus's Secure Centre for Incurably Criminal Boys. But four years later, he has the opportunity to attend Hogwarts, where he learns to live a life he never thought possible for himself.
Definitely a very angsty take on the non-magic AU, focusing on the abuse Harry suffered. Very intense and a great use of canon characters, locations, and scenes!
Title: Draco's Boy
Word Count: 189,446
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, angst, past child abuse, boarding school
Summary: A mysterious little black-haired boy moves in next door to Draco, and he's determined to make the boy his friend and find out all of his secrets. Later, when they grow up, Draco's determined to make Harry much more than a friend.
Well written and extremely interesting. You really see these boys grow up and come to terms with their sexuality. I definitely have a thing for non-magical boarding school AUs...
Word Count: ~2,355
Content/Warnings: AU: Magical, AU: Historical, creature!fic, vampire!draco, biting, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry's lost in the mountains of Romania during a storm. He finds shelter at a remote castle.
Fun and sexy bit of atmospheric porn! Love the Gothic Bram Stoker vibes here, and the whole thing hit so many of my buttons in so few words!
Title: In Flight
Word Count: ~5,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Magical, creature!fic, veela!draco, bottom!harry, hd_owlpost 2013
Summary: What a Malfoy wanted, a Malfoy got. And Draco Malfoy wanted Harry Potter.
Loved the way the background story-lines are incorporated into this AU Harry works for Draco as a bodyguard and Draco starts to fall for him, which isn't supposed to happen.
Title: as much a light as a flame
Word Count: 6,303
Warnings/Content: AU: Fairy Tale, AU: magical, werewolf!draco, creature!fic, mating run, mates, bottom!harry, knotting, outdoor!sex, scenting, hd_fan_fair Sex Fair 2020
Summary: His mother paints a wolf on his chest, its eyes bracketing his heart, and its muzzle pointed towards his groin. His aunt fills in the spaces around his waist and ribs with symbols he's lost the meaning of in the wash of whatever plant had been mixed in with the steam. They move after her brush leaves his skin, turning from incomprehensible marks to his name to wolf to home to hunt and then back to misunderstanding again.
His legs are painted in patterned bands, starting from his ankles and ending at his upper thighs. His groin is left unmarked, the pale and empty skin meant to leave no doubt of the Claim once he makes it.
Really cool Medieval/Fairytale-type AU with some gorgeous prose and a super fascinating mythology. I'm always down for werewolf fic, and the atmosphere of the claiming run here was utterly absorbing. Super hot and a really fun and unique read!
♥ ♥ Title: Slightly Silly Codpiece-Ripper Porn and Bedfellow
Words: ~2,400 and ~4,250 (~6,650 total)
Content/Warnings: AU: Magical, bottom!harry, lord!draco, pageboy!harry, rimming, dirty talk, light D/s
Summary: Night has fallen and Harry finds himself in Lord Draco's bed, providing more than just body heat.
So freaking hot, love the dirty talk and the slight power play.
Author: femmequixotic & noeon
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, background Remus/Tonks, Milicent/Greg, Sirius/OMC

Summary: When a hideously mauled corpse is found sprawled across the paving stones of Brick Lane in the East End of London, Detective Inspector Harry Potter--widely believed to be the lead candidate for next Deputy Head Auror--is called up to investigate a possible werewolf murder. To make matters worse, his boss sends for his occasional lover and former school-nemesis, Viscount Draco Malfoy, now billing himself as a consulting criminologist, to aid in the high-profile case.
Neither man will go away from the case unchanged, but will their combined forces be enough to fight the tide of danger that is sweeping London in the summer of 1910? And if they plumb the depths of the conspiracy, what bones of the past will they uncover?
Oh this fic is so unique and interesting and so, so good! The Edwardian England time period is perfectly done, and the way that canon characters and events are woven into this era is perfection. The case is spooky and fascinating, and all of the side characters are wonderfully done. LOVED the werewolf aspects as well, and that whole dynamic was wonderfully done. Not to mention that this fic is hot as hell, all while keeping you on the edge of your seat as you read on to find out what is happening. Riveting read.
