Hogwarts Era AU
Title: Open Surrender
Word Count: 3,305
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, rimming, bottom!harry, exhibitionism
Summary: Draco pays Harry a midnight visit.
Holy GOD is this ever hot. Basically, Draco fucks Harry in the middle of the Gryffindor dormitory while all of his friends sleep just feet away. Gorgeously steamy PWP.
Title: Kailash, When it Rises
Pairing: Draco/Harry preslash
Word Count: 3,633
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era
Summary: Harry can't sleep.
Another one of those fics I read ages ago, and then never got around to reccing. This might not technically be Hogwart Era AU, but it's at the very least a War AU. Anyways, beautiful writing, with a really lovely characterization of Harry. Capture his feelings for Draco so wonderfully and the style is gorgeous and gripping.
Title: The Big Reveal
Word Count: ~4,500
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (other pairings mentioned)
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, light D/s, bottom!draco, hp-kinkfest 2011
Summary: A silly school game can say a lot about a person. Or a couple of people, really. AU, sixth year – yeah, it’s legal here.
Funny, love the ending.
Title: Hurt for the Right Reasons
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, underage, bottom!draco, first time, shower!sex, angry!sex
Summary: Everything was so cocked up. He just wanted this one thing. He wanted to hurt for the right reasons for once.
God this was so great. I loved the realistic takes on their characters, it sort of feels like something that could happen organically, it isn't all fluffy love-conquers-all. But the ending is hopeful and really perfect.
Title: The Ol' Switcheroo locked on comm
Word Count: 5,019
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, dirty talk, cross-dressing, bottom!draco
Summary: Harry doesn't know the difference between a skirt and trousers. He decides that's a good thing.
Love Harry's reaction to Draco's accidental cross-dressing. SO hot.
Title: Mirror, Mirror
Word Count: 5,214
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, bottom!harry, slight D/s, Hogwarts 7th year
Summary: Draco's Head Boy and doing hallway duty at night when he finds a certain someone in a room with a certain mirror. Funny how some things have a way plaguing you.
Pretty much a PWP set at Hogwarts during 7th year. The sex is super hot, but I am kind of a sucker for a more dominant Draco.
Authors: femmequixotic and noeon
Word count: 7,047
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, AU: Fusion, Hogwarts 7th year, established relationship, Little Red Riding Fusion, *for me
Summary: With wolves surrounding him, Draco seeks safe haven. But, as his godfather warns him, wolves come in many forms.
Really fabulous fic that goes a bit AU during Deathly Hallows. The was the Red Riding Hood elements were incorporated into the canon verse was really clever, and the tone here was so perfect, sort of dark and fairy tale foreboding. Just wonderful.
Title: Advanced Charms
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era
Summary: Harry and Draco meet up in an abandoned classroom.
This entire fic is one long sex scene and is just so ridiculously awesome and hot. I love Harry's running commentary and the sex is awkward and messy and realistic and hot.
♥ Title: Preparation and Blush
Word Count: 7,547 total
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, dirty talk, rimming, first time, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry asks a question--eventually.
I definitely have a thing for inexperienced Harry, and he is so adorable here asking Draco about sex. And then filthy-mouthed Draco explicitly talking about what he would do to Harry! So many of my kinks!
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, Pansy/Neville, Seamus/Dean
Word Count: 9,495
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry and company are bored, so Harry is encouraged to tell the others a sexual fantasy that becomes a little more romantic than they are expecting.
I love dirty talk, and hearing Harry describe his sexual "fantasy" is just too hot.
Word Count: 11,057
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, outsider POV, sixth year AU, dub-con
Summary: Blaise was immune to whatever it was people usually felt around his mother, for which he was profoundly grateful, since no one needed an Oedipal complex on quite that spectacular a scale, but that didn’t mean he didn’t have a thorough respect for her gift.
Super fun and clever fic with Draco being an Erosmancer (think Veela allure, but with added magical power) and, of course, Blaise's mother is one as well and immediately recognizes that steps need to be taken. I really liked Blaise's outsider POV, and the whole thing was such a cool and interesting read!
Word Count: 14,158
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, accidental bonding!fic, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco
Summary: “It’s not for long,” Hermione said. “By the time we get back to Hogwarts, the Unfettering Brew will be ready.”
“Listen to you!” Ron said. “He’s got to get through a month with the Dursleys and a month at Malfoy Manor. With Draco Malfoy.”
“Yeah, thanks,” Harry said, because he hadn’t just spent the last week contemplating just how much more horrible his summer holidays were about to be than they’d ever been before.
Really wonderful Hogwarts AU with Draco and Harry accidentally bonding and having to spend the summer together at each other's homes. It's got all the wonderful tension and conflict of a good Hogwarts AU, and I really like how the relationship builds between them. Enjoyable read with a satisfyingly hopeful ending.
Title: Desire Unveiled
Word Count: 14,881
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, underage, internalised homomphobia, first time, bottom!harry, harry_submits 2012
Summary: Harry is emphatically NOT a pouf, and thus his reoccurring fantasies involving Draco are due to his Occlumency lessons with Snape, NOT to his sexuality. Or so he tries to convince himself. Meanwhile, Voldemort has returned, and Harry is about to learn that he is the Chosen One – whether he’s ready or not. Set during OotP.
Hogwarts AU with Harry struggling with internalised homophobia as Snape's Occulmency lessons and Malfoy's taunting bring his suppressed feelings to the forefront.
Title: All the Ashes Like Leaves
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Original Work Name: The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
Word Count: 21,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, AU: Apocalypse, The day of the Triffids fusion, hd_smoochfest 2014
Summary: Nothing about being the Chosen One had prepared Harry for this. With most of the population blinded and man-eating plants running amok, he can only stay close to his friends as they make their way to safety. Not that he’d call Malfoy a friend, but the end of the world does rather make their ongoing feud seem trivial. And it just figures that it took nothing short of an apocalypse to make Malfoy seem like less of a git.
This is so much more than just a Hogwarts AU, and it's barely that, but it is an AU, and they are still technically in Hogwarts, so here it goes! Really fascinating fusion, and you don't have to have read the book it's based on for it to make sense. Wonderfully ominous and gorgeously written, this fic has all the makings of my favorite kind of apocalypse!fic.
Title: Underneath the Underneath
Pairings: Harry/Draco (implied Ron/Hermione – slight Boot/Corner)
Word Count: ~23,000
Content/Warning: AU: Hogwarts Era, bottom!harry, hd_holidays 2008
Summary: AU: Hogwarts has never been boring for Harry Potter, and sixth year is shaping up to be no different. A mystery, a (slightly uncomfortable) budding romance between old friends, and a botched up Potions accident. It might be more bearable if only Malfoy wasn't such a pain.
Surprisingly fun AU of 6th year.
Title: A Little Tied Up
Pairing: Harry/Draco, past Draco/Blaise, Draco/Theo
Word Count: 45,424
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, light bondage, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco
Summary: Draco gets on the wrong side of Blaise but Harry is in the right place at the right time to help him out.
This is a fun, sexy, and fluffy Hogwarts fic.
Title: The Alpha-Omega Bond Series (2 Fics)
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione, Lucius/Narcissa, Lucius/Narcissa/Snape, past Dumbledore/Grindelwald
Word Count: 47,051
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, AU: Omega!verse, a/b/o/ dynamics, alpha!draco, omega!harry, D/s, heat cycles, knotting, mates, bonding!fic, dub-con, dirty talk, rimming, first time, table!sex, semi-public!sex
Summary: Harry goes into heat unexpectedly. Malfoy stakes his claim.
Super hot a/b/o fic that starts during sixth year and then goes slightly AU. Loved the way the omega!verse dynamics were incorporated into the HP world, and the discussions about alpha/omega dynamics and the laws/views on everything were really interesting. Really enjoyed the connection between Harry and Draco, and the sex was seriously, seriously hot.
Title: Catch 22
Word Count: 49,895
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, epistolary!fic, dirty talk, identity!porn, first time, light bondage, blindfolds, bottom!harry
Summary: As if NEWTS weren't enough, Dumbledore's gone and had another one of his 'bright ideas.' If all ends well, the Houses will be getting along in no time. Or according to Harry's correspondent, an Apocalypse will be in order. [OotP/HBP/DH disregarded]
I loved this!! I don't read many Hogwarts AUs these days but this one was super fun and I loved the epistolary/identity porn aspect and how it really allowed them to get to know one another without all their history and baggage. The build between them was fabulous and MAN those letters had me fanning myself. I really enjoyed all of the characterizations here and the glimpses we got of the other characters as well--Draco's relationships with his fellow Slytherins were particularly lovely!
Title: The Challenge/Good Boy Series aka The Porn War
Pairing: Draco/Harry, mentions of Draco/Cho, Draco/Padma, Draco/Pavarti
Word Count: ~58,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, bondage, dub-con (borderline non-con), rimming, dirty talk, switching, bottom!draco, mostly bottom!harry, face-fucking, light D/s
Summary: 'And you thought I couldn't fuck you…'
So I read this ages ago before I started keeping track of my favorites and I was finally able to give it a reread. It is absolutely just as freaking hot as I remember it being. Basically 50k+ of pure antagonistic porn, with some plot and feelings that manage to sneak their way in there. Definitely some fairly strong dub-con in places, but this is one of the best old school hate/lust/love fics out there IMO.
Title: On the Last Day of Our World
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Severus/Remus
Word Count: 85,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts Era, starts out in Hogwarts
Summary: During a detention, Harry and Draco get locked in a strange room together overnight.
When they escape the next morning, they discover they are alone. Love, angst and adventure abound as they struggle to survive in an empty world.
Very AU and unusual story. Loved the concept and the evolution of their relationship being the only two people in their world for so long.
Title: To Be Back Again in the Rest of the Room
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 16,000
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, Post-war, pre-8th year, hd_holidays 2012
Summary: Harry’s just defeated Voldemort, and has had enough trouble for a lifetime. All he wants to do now is to get into his four-poster bed in Gryffindor Tower and sleep. Too bad he soon finds himself unexpectedly stuck in a malfunctioning Room of Requirement... with Malfoy.
Wow, this fic is so well done. I loved the evolution of Harry and Draco's relationship and the ending blew me away.
Title: One Thousand Bars
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, Ginny/Dean, Neville/Hannah
Word Count: ~19,000
Content/Warnings: immediately post-war, azkaban!fic, hd_erised 2014
Summary: And I will hold on hope / And I won't let you choke / On the noose around your neck / And I'll find strength in pain / And I will change my ways / I'll know my name as it's called again
Such a beautiful fic! Harry and Draco were really wonderfully characterized and their relationship development felt so natural and inevitable and real. Harry friends are beautifully portrayed the fullness of Harry's life with them really provided lovely contrast to Draco's life in Azkaban. Great connection and a very satisfying conclusion.
Title: Make My Demons Run and sequel of sorts New Dawn's Light
Word Count: 28,072 & 3,090
Content/Warnings: Post-war, pre-8th year, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, hd_smoochfest 2015, hd_owlpost 2015
Summary: After giving evidence in defence of Draco at his trial, suddenly Potter is everywhere he turns as he completes his community service. Draco hadn't expected any of it, nor had he expected those long buried feelings he'd once had to come rising back to the surface. He definitely didn't expect what happened next.
Really lovely fic that takes place immediately at the war with the rebuilding of Hogwarts. I loved Draco's POV here, and the author did a fabulous job showing Draco's past and painting a picture of the environment Draco grew up in. The development of Draco and Harry's relationship was lovely, and the sex was hot and sweet.
Title: Kiss the Joy (Until the Sun Rise)
Word Count: 37,863
Content/Warnings: post-war, possible post-war related depression and PTSD triggers., hd_smoochfest 2013
Summary: The Room of Requirement was severely damaged in the war, but not so much that it could not provide for one lost student and another young hero—especially when they needed each other most of all.
Another post-war Room of Requirement fic. Very well-written, I thought the emotions and the way both Harry and Draco were dealing with the aftermath of the war felt very realistic, and the development of their relationship felt very organic to the story.
♥ Title: Salt on the Western Wind
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, implied past Harry/Ginny as per canon.
Word Count: 60,500
Content/Warnings: post-war, bonding!fic, hd_smoochfest 2012
Summary: When the war isn’t quite as over as it first appears, a guilt-ridden Harry is sent to a mysterious safe-house. Among sandwiches, insomnia, and Mills & Boon, he discovers something quite unexpected.
This story is really quite fantastic. It starts immediately after the Battle of Hogwarts with Ron, Hermione, Harry, & Draco being sent to a safe-house and Harry & Draco getting accidentally physically bonded together. Ron & Hermione (especially Ron) are great in this, and everybody is so in character. The way their relationship evolves just feels so believable and natural. Love!
