Word Count: ~3,720
Warning(s): vampire!Draco, werewolf!Harry, light bloodplay, AU/Non-DH compliant, bottom!Harry
Summary: Vampire!Draco and Werewolf!Harry haven't seen each other in awhile.
Part of why I love Draco and Harry is the chemistry they have from being on opposites sides of everything. So adding werewolf vs. vampire on top of that is too perfect. This fic is intriguing and so, so hot.
Title: The Colour of Snow
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 3,722
Notes: vampire!Draco, light bloodplay, bottom!Harry, dark-ish, hd_fan_fair book fair 2013
Summary: I think I can call this a modern vampire story. In which Harry is severe injured and Draco an Ministry experiment/captive.
I love vampire!draco and while this wasn't super dark ,it definitely had some dark overtones, which I sometimes crave instead of fluffy creature fics. I love their connection and the open ending seems fitting. Plus I am a big fan of good-guy Ron, which sneaks in there.

Warnings/Content: mild blood play, first person POV, vampire!Draco, orgasm delay, light bondage, bottom!harry, implied switching
Summary: "Go home, Potter. You wouldn't." Before I know it, his hand has slipped inside my jacket. It finds my waist, and he steps in close. His scent overwhelms me, tanned skin salt-stung and right there. I feel his breath on my jaw when he murmurs, "Would you?"
This fic is UNF and a half. Everything I love about vampire Draco and the writing here was sensual and sexy as hell.

Summary: Harry finds Draco naked and scratched up on the outskirts of the Forbidden Forest and he becomes obsessed with finding out what’s really going on.
Super hot fic with Harry realising something's wrong with Draco and then going to great lengths to help him. No worries though, he's not being self-sacrificing--he definitely enjoys it! Gorgeous tension throughout and a really quick, sexy read!
Word Count: 4,667
Content/Warnings: werewolf!draco, auror!harry, *for me
Summary: Draco Malfoy is a werewolf. Harry Potter is a human Auror on whom even a werewolf's sensitive nose can smell no fear.
Really fabulous fic that starts with Draco getting bitten by a werewolf and Harry helping him through all his changes. I loved the wolfy aspects and werewolf Teddy was especially great in this one. The chemistry between Draco and Harry is great, as is the fun, playful sex at the end. :D

Word Count: ~5,800
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, vampire!draco, light bloodplay

Content/Warnings: veela!draco, creature!fic, bottom!harry, mild xenophilia
Summary: A Veela has killed their Mate. It's a devastating case that brings the Acting Head Auror and the Wizard-Veela Liaison Officer together again.
Lovely, poignant fic with a wonderfully real look at the veela trope. I thought the case was beautifully heartbreaking, and the depth of Harry's emotion for Draco (and vice versa) came across really well. Plus, hot riding with veela transformation! :D
Word Count: 6,500
Content/Notes: creature!fic, werewolf!draco, knotting, bottom!harry, auror!harry, hp_kinkfest 2014
Summary: Being trapped in a dungeon with Malfoy — who's a werewolf, a former Death Eater, and a giant git — is definitely dangerous. Harry has no reason to be excited. None at all.
This is so amazing! LOVE Draco trying to warn Harry away and protect him from his animalistic desires, and Harry just not being able to contain his lust! Crazy hot werewolf-y sex (yay!) and the ending was just the sweetest.
Title: A Consummation Devoutly to be Wished [No longer online]
Word Count: 6,666
Content/Notes: AU: Hogwarts, creature!fic, veela!draco, mates, bottom!harry, implied switching
Summary: Um … DracoisaveelaandHarryishismate. Shut up.
Funny, tropey, veela!fic with the standard soulmate bonding. This fic is fun and sexy and doesn't take itself too seriously.
Word Count: 6,720
Content/Warnings: veela!harry, auror!harry, bottom!harry, bonding!fic, forced bonding, light dub-con
Summary: Harry could deal with side-effects from a vaccine against Veela allure. Really, he could. If those side-effects didn’t include the urge to lure Malfoy down dark corridors and do…things…with him.
Awesome fic with Harry having an unfortunate reaction to a Veela allure vaccine that causes him to need to desperately bond to Draco. Harry was so adorable in his confused, reluctant desire and hot damn was the sex fantastic!

Word Count: ~10,300
Warnings: dub-con, bondage (sort of), knotting, rough sex, werewolf!harry, mates, bottom!draco, hd_tropes 2013
Summary: "Strap him down," someone said, and Harry felt the rage thicken inside him -- the viscous fear.
Magical bindings pulled taut around his wrists . . . He felt a wand touch his arm and then a sharp bite as something punctured the skin, and a sweet, cool tonic rushed his veins.
His breathing slowed. His eyelids drooped. The ceiling went grey and dark. And then he heard a woman's voice sigh, "Someone, get Healer Malfoy."
This fic was great. Harry is so animal, all instinct, and then he scratches Draco, and Draco begins to feel the pull, which leads to super hot animalistic sex.
Title: To Keep the Heart’s Action
Word Count: 12,053
Content/Warnings: unusual jobs, auror!harry, creature!fic, vampire!harry, bottom!harry, hp_creatures 2018
Summary: What happens in Budapest stays in Budapest.
This fic was SUCH a wonderful read. I do love myself a good creature!fic and Draco as a vampire hunter and Harry as a newly turned vampire made for a great fic. The connection between them was so lovely and built really beautifully, and the writing really sucked me in--pun not intended!
Title: Haute Allure
Word Count: 12,500
Warning(s): model!draco, creature!fic, veela!draco, bottom!harry, implied switching, do_me_veela 2014
Summary: Harry is famous for his menswear now. Malfoy is the inside leg that he loves running his tape measure up.
This fic is funny, and wonderful, and silly, and a bit OOC, but in the best way. Draco is a Veela model, and Harry is a fashion designer in a ridiculous tweed hat, and the Trio are all vegan, and Dean wears plum lipstick, and Lavender does hair and says fetch, and the world building here is just so well done and so much fun! I could not stop smiling. Not to mention that the sex is crazy hot and the tension and connection between Harry and Draco is fantastic.
Title: Tooth Fairy Fights and Wisdom Teeth Wars: Draco and Harry's Great Big Dental Adventure
Word Count: 12,970
Warning(s): veela!draco, creature!fic, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry never had a visit from the Tooth Fairy when he was a boy, but now that he's had his wisdom teeth pulled, he's tempted to try again. He knows it's silly. Obviously it is. Ridiculous, really. But then, sometimes it feels nice to believe in a little magic.
Oh this fic is just so much fun! Draco and Harry's voices here were great and the whole thing was just so funny and charming. The concept of the tooth fairies was really clever, and I liked the incorporation of veela!Draco. Awesome build-up, and some super great sexy times!
Title: Night Shift
Word Count: 14,392
Content/Warnings: bottom!draco, auror!harry, auror!draco, vampire!harry, hd_holidays 2009
Summary: Draco is stuck in career purgatory on the night shift in the Auror Department. The powers that be won’t let him near any important cases, but he knows he can prove himself and get promoted if he can just crack a big case. When Harry Potter shows up after getting himself banished to the night shift as well, how will he affect Draco’s plans?
Very interesting with Draco not really realizing what is wrong with Harry and Harry using his "skills" to help Draco out. And the ending is super sweet.

Word Count: 16,861
Content/Warnings: vampire!harry, light bloodplay, dub-con, bonding!fic, AU Hogwarts
Summary: Harry is deliberately infected with Vampirism in order to make him crave a mate...Draco's not all that keen on being craved though…
Interesting to watch Draco's feelings about everything evolve as he understands what exactly is expected of him. And hot vampiric sexy times!

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, (mostly past) Harry/Ginny
Word Count: 18,500
Content/Warnings: light bondage, vampire!draco, auror!harry, bottom!harry
Summary: In which there is an obsessed Potter, conspiracy theories, bonds, hormones, far too much self-help, and, of course, a secret underground vampire bureaucracy. None of which is as important as the fact that this is not Draco Malfoy's fault.
A very funny vampire Draco and an interesting concept of mates and telepathy. Witty, sexy, and engaging :)
Title: A Choice of Wings
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, brief Draco/others
Word Count: 18,800
Warning(s): creature!fic, veela!draco, bottom!harry, do_me_veela 2014
Summary: A Choice of Wings is Harry’s business for matching Veela who haven’t automatically found mates with people who might make them good partners. And Draco Malfoy is his most difficult client.
That is fantastic! Such a fun idea and I loved how the Veela's needs and how a dating agency for Veela's would work are depicted. And, of course, I loved the connection between Harry and Draco and how drawn Harry was to Draco while still trying to be practical about their relationship.
♥ Title: Savage
Word Count: 18,700
Content/Warnings: werewolf!draco, unusual job, hd_holidays 2009
Summary: In a post-war world that lives in fear and ignorance of werewolves, Draco Malfoy has taken every step to keep his condition hidden. When the delicate balance of his life shatters in a single moment, it is Harry Potter alone standing in his defense.
This fic is seriously amazing. I love how Draco is affected by his werewolf side and his persecution for being one. The UST between Harry and Draco is so delicious and the werewolfy sex is hot!!
Title: Two Weeks
Word Count: 21,951
Content/Warnings: Creature!fic, veela!harry, auror!draco, auror!harry, bottom!harry, first time, hp_creatures 2016
Summary: If Harry had to guess which out of he or his Auror Partner, and tentative new friend, Draco Malfoy, would turn out to have Veela ancestry, his answer would be: neither, because that is ridiculous. Finding out the answer is actually him, and that his Veela heritage is wreaking havoc on his ability to work, sleep, and above all be in the same room as Malfoy, is a surprise to say the least. But this is fine. Harry’s been through worse, and he can just sit this one out, regardless of how much his body is screaming for the one person he doesn’t want to ask for help. Can’t he?
Seriously amazing fic with Harry finding out that he's part Veela, after his Auror partner, Draco, is badly cursed. Draco's fine, of course, and now Harry's Veela nature has come out in full swing and he is desperate for Draco. Harry was wonderfully characterized here, and the writing was just lovely. A really great friendship between Draco and Harry becomes something much more, with some crazy hot sex along the way! Awesome read!

Summary: Draco is a Veela adopted by the Malfoys, and when he meets Harry Potter, his world abruptly shifts. This is a story of how these two stubborn boys grew up together. Omega!verse x Veela fic.
Really fascinating AU with Veela!Draco and Omega!Verse and a super interesting twist on canon.

Summary: Draco is in trouble; to get out of it he needs to seduce Harry Potter.
This fic was fantastic! Such a cool take on the creature!fic trope with Incubus Draco. The writing was exquisite and the sexual chemistry here was seriously off the charts. I loved how this developed, and the ending was fantastically satisfying.

Malfoy seems willing to negotiate with the Ministry. There's just one small condition: Harry has to agree to be Malfoy's dinner.
Really enjoyable creature!fic with a Vampire Draco negotiating with Harry for more Vampire rights. The pull between them both was fabulous, and the smut was seriously hot!

Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Word Count: ~25,400
Content/Warnings: vampires, creature!fic, mild case!fic, vampires!Draco, dreams, Private Investigator Draco Malfoy, hd_erised 2019
Summary: Harry Potter is a missing person. Draco Malfoy is a vampire. They are the last two people one would expect to bump into each other in a Creature Bar in Prague, yet to Draco’s absolute shock that is definitely Harry fucking Potter sitting across from him.
Even more surprising is that Potter may have a case for him.
I'm always here for Vampire!Draco, and this fic was just wonderful! Draco's POV was fabulous, the mystery aspect had me on the edge of my seat, and I really loved the connection between Harry and Draco here!
Title: Blue Sunny Day
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 26,000
Warnings: dark themes, including attempted suicide, drugging and kidnapping, bottom!draco, vampire!harry, hp_creatures 2013
Summary: When Draco spots Potter at a Muggle club in London, he just can't resist the opportunity that presents itself.
This fic really isn't as dark as the warnings make it sound. Everybody thinks Harry is dead when Draco spots him feeding at a muggle nightclub. He realizes Harry is practically starving himself so he offers his services as a blood donor to clear his life debt. Obviously feeling develop, but in such a perfectly Draco way. His characterization is spot on, the sex is so hot, and the information about vampires is fascinating.
♥ Title: With a Candle to Guide Me
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione, Bill/Fleur
Word Count: 29,238
Content/Warnings: dark themes including attempted suicide, creature!fic, bottom!harry, werewolf!draco, desk!sex, hd_smoochfest 2015
Summary: Draco wakes up in a nightmare, caught in the horror that’s haunted him since childhood. Desperate and trying to make sense of all that’s happened, Draco finds the only person who seems to want to give him answers is Potter. But being near Potter holds questions too—ones Draco isn’t sure he wants to ask. Even if it means turning down a way back to solid ground.
I love werewolf!Draco fics and this fic is the perfect example of why. The writing here is gorgeous and the way the werewolf transformation is described with Draco's enhanced smelling ability and his new urges is just fantastic. I adored getting inside Draco's head here, and watching him come to terms with his condition, and his relationship not only with Harry, but with the fabulous side cast of character was marvelous. Plus the sex was unbelievably hot.
♥ Title: The Arc of the Pendulum
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 30,262
Content/Warnings: unusual job, unusual creature, bottom!draco, hd_worldcup round 1
Summary: After his father casts a mysterious curse on Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy is forced to try to make things right. Loosely based on "Beauty and the Beast".
Harry gets cursed with a kind of reverse werewolf curse, so even though he looks human, he has to struggle to suppress the "beast" within. Cue Draco finding him isolated at the manor and the two of them being stuck there trying to find a cure. The curse is fascinating and I love Draco in this. And the ending! So good.
♥ Title: Business Meetings
Pairing: Harry/Draco, mentions of others
Word Count: 32,404
Content/Warnings: vampire!draco, bottom!harry, auror!harry
Summary: Draco leads a powerful group of vampires. Harry is their Ministry-appointed negotiator. Cue a series of once-monthly meetings where Harry and Draco argue about the various virtues of attacking the Ministry versus holding back from doing so, and, eventually, other things.
I loved this fic. Draco is a vampire, but more traditional with the cold, marble exterior and ruthless demeanor...and the story is told in a series of monthly meetings over a year. I love how you get to see Harry's opinions change. And the UST was so well written and so hot when it was resolved.
Title: The Garland Gay
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, Draco/OMCs
Word Count: 35,150
Content/Warnings: veela!Draco, creature!fic, mild dub-con, rough sex, wing!fic, bottom!harry, Private Investigator Harry Potter, beltane drinking

His troubles bring him to private investigator Harry Potter, who lost it all – girlfriend, Galleons, Auror career – over a tenacious obsession with a certain blond. Both become entangled in the vengeful schemes of a stranger from the past. As much as Draco tries to resist, in the end, he must make a fateful choice for the man he is destined to love.
Beautifully written fic with some truly unique and fascinating Veela lore, and a magnetic connection between Draco and Harry. The atmosphere in this one was so dreamy, and UNF the smut was super hot!
Title: The Weight of Eternity and remix Time to Eternity

Pairing: Harry/Draco, brief Draco/OCs
Word Count: ~37,000 total
Content/Warnings: veela!draco, creature!fic, rimming, mates, healer!harry, bottom!draco, implied switching
Summary: Desperate for survival, Draco takes what he needs from others while avoiding the one he’s meant to be with. His newfound compassion will not allow him to trap the one he loves, even if it means his own life is the price paid for Harry’s freedom of choice.
Wonderful Veela!Fic with Draco knowing that he needs to be with Harry, his true mate, but unwilling to ask Harry for something he's sure he won't give. Sweet build, and super sexy. The remix is the same story but from Harry's POV.
Title: Not Less of Love
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, past Harry/Ginny
Word Count: 36,131
Content/Warnings: eighth year, veela!draco, bottom!harry, mates, first time, marking, biting
Summary: The war changed everyone. Harry comes back to eighth year knowing exactly what he wants, and unfortunately for him, so does Draco. Is it just Harry's imagination, or is his worst enemy harbouring a secret? Harry finds out about Draco's new side and definitely doesn’t want to help. But it's not really up to him.
Wonderful eighth year veela!fic. I loved the connection between Draco and Harry, and I thought Draco's Veela instincts were wonderfully described. I liked that there were some bumps along the way to mate-hood, and the ending was lovely.
Title: Shine, Even in the Darkness

Word Count: 41,000
Content/Warnings: dub-con, rimming, fighting, creature!fic, veela!draco, auror!harry, bottom!harry, dirty talk, mates, hd_tropes 2014
Summary: Harry hasn’t seen Draco for over fifteen years, but now he’s showing up everywhere and Harry is sort of weirdly attracted to him, but that can’t be right?
Such a powerfully intense fic and wonderfully written. Different from a lot of veela fics in that the boys are much older. Wonderfully written connection between Draco and Harry and so much sexual tension! Which thankfully leads to some crazy hot sex!
♥ Title: Embers
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione & Pansy/Millicent, brief mentions of past Harry/OMCs and Draco/OMCs
Word Count: 41,217

Summary: Werewolf Alphas aren't meant to be alone, or to suppress their ruts indefinitely like Draco has been since he was bitten eight years ago. He needs company, companionship, to knot ― he needs an Omega Heat Companion. At least, that’s what the Healers say, and even Draco can admit contacting the person they’ve referred him to might be nice.
Of course it turns out to be bloody Potter.
JFC, this fic was just fantastic! If you're at all a fan of creature!fics or A/B/O then you NEED to read this fic. The writing was fabulous, the set up and the build between Harry and Draco was beyond amazing, and holy hell, the chemistry between the two of them just jumped off the screen. Wonderful read and seriously freaking hot!
Title: My Name Was Safest in Your Mouth

Word Count: ~46,000
Content/Warnings: creature!fic, Veela!Draco, potions researcher Draco, shop owner Harry, friends with benefits (sort of), mates, bonding!fic, bottom!draco, hd_erised 2017
Summary: Harry didn’t ask for Malfoy to walk into his shop after so many years. But one event leads to another, and soon they’re scrambling to help Hermione find the solution to one of the most insidious viruses the wizarding world has ever seen. To make matters worse, Malfoy’s hiding something, and Harry really wants to kiss him—except Malfoy doesn’t date. Ever.
It's been ages since I read a good Veela fic and this one totally hit the spot! The Veela aspect is done with a very light hand (for those who aren't wild about creature!fics) and I really adored the characterizations and relationship development in this one. And it's all wound up with an intense sub-plot that really helps move things along. Definitely recommend!
Title: Rejoicing in Their Strength and Eyes That Can See in the Dark
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 35,375 and 15,905 (51,280 total)

During one of his journeys, he is astonished to find Harry Potter, who vanished after the war, living in the Forest of Dean.
This one gets a little dark and a lot gruesome, but it is so good. The torture is pretty graphic, but I loved the concept of astral projection (I've always found the idea intriguing) and Draco and Harry's slow building friendship and romance. The OC's are very well written and the sequel with werewolf!draco is fantastic and hot!

Summary: As if his recent divorce and sleepless nights weren’t bad enough, a rash of escalating crimes against purebloods forces Harry and his team of Aurors to protect the riskiest target in all of Wizarding Britain.
Of course, Draco Malfoy would still be ridiculously infuriating and impossibly gorgeous.
As well as a Veela.
Who happens to be Harry’s mate.
Creature!Fic AND case!fic? Sign me up! This was SUCH a great read, and I found myself immediately engrossed. The mystery here was really wonderfully written and it wove into the developing relationship between Harry and Draco so perfectly! I loved how Draco came into his Veela inheritance, and the way that everything unfolded after the fact with Harry being his mate was just amazingly written. The pacing here really was just spot on, as were the characterizations, not just of Harry and Draco, but of the whole case of characters. One of my favorite fics I've read this year for sure!

To do that, Draco must open his mind and heart to what he has become, the new-found family that surrounds him, and the man who has remained steadfast at his side through it all.
Harry has spent the last five years avoiding the man he fell in love with, but when Draco needs his help, Harry cannot refuse. As they race against the clock to find Draco’s missing partner, Harry discovers that the the bond they share is nothing to hide from, and that he'll never outrun the pace of his own heart.
Oh boy, was this fic ever fantastic! Seriously gorgeous and gripping fic with newly-turned Vampire Draco who's got a missing Auror partner and missing memories. The plot was fascinating and perfectly paced, and the relationship build between Harry and Draco was super brilliant. The kind of fic that kept me on the edge of my seat, desperate to find out what happened next. Plus, some mind-meltingly hot sex, fabulous supporting characters, and a lovely, brilliant ending.
Title: The Light More Beautiful

Summary: Thirteen years after Draco accepts Potter's help escaping the horror of his sixth year, he returns to England where he makes the unfortunate discovery that Potter is still as obnoxious as ever. And worse, more than a decade overseas hasn't been enough to dim Draco's obsession with him.
Really great fic that seriously just flew by because I could not stop reading. Seriously BRILLIANT characterizations and gorgeous chemistry between Harry and Draco. Everything is woven together so beautifully and when Harry and Draco finally come together, it's like it all clicks into place. Fabulous fic.
Title: Chains of the Earth
Word Count: 89,807

Summary: Draco is kidnapped and forced to make a choice between taking his own life or becoming something less than human. Of course, he makes the right decision. Enter Harry, who discovers he has a bit of a thing for wings.
Fun twist on a creature!fic with Draco being a slightly more unusual creature. I really loved both Harry and Draco's characterizations in this and their connection was amazing. Hermione was also super lovely, and the tension between Harry & Hermione and Ron & Ginny created a different dynamic then a lot of H/D fics I've read. Plus, super freaking hot wing!sex! :)
Title: A Year's Temptation
Pairings: Draco/Harry, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Pansy
Word Count: 122,448
Warnings: language, some violence, a light AU after HBP
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, veela!draco, auror!harry, seeker!draco
Summary: Draco isn't best pleased to discover he's a Veela at twenty-four…especially since both he and his mate, Harry Potter, are married. Harry suggests a compromise that may work, if everyone agrees. But the compromise is fragile, and stands a distinct chance of only making everything worse than before.
Great Veela fic that explores the fanfic trope of "mates" in a less-than shiny light, since both Harry and Draco are already married to Ginny and Pansy respectively when they learn that they are mates. I think the fallout from this was so well done and their relationship progression was lovely and believable. This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
