Summary: When Harry would look back on The Incident in the Library with the First-Edition Hogwarts, A History, (not at all fondly and with absolutely nothing that resembled feelings--thank you very much), he blamed the entire thing on the fact that Draco had been wearing pink trainers.
This fic is so much fun! Featuring an adorably tipsy Harry, a sexy, confident Draco, and some super hot spanking/rimming action!

Pairings: Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3,972

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~5,000
Content/Warnings: eighth year, time travel, first time, bottom!draco, age difference, first person POV
Summary: It's the middle of the night and Harry Potter is sitting on my bed looking distinctly weird. I've had some fucked-up dreams in my time, but this takes the biscuit.
God this fic is just gorgeous. I'm in love with this beautifully broken Draco, who's struggling after the war, and then Harry comes from the future, to tell him everything will be okay. It's lovely and sexy and gave me a lot of feels.

Contains/Notes: eighth year, bottom!harry, dracotops_harry 2014
Summary: Sex is emotion in motion -- Mae West
This was just amazing. I am in love with the Draco in this fic, everything he goes through seems so believable and his reactions and trying to deal with things on his own, are just perfect. This just gave me so many Draco feels! And the sex was smokin' hot.

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 5,767
Content/Warnings: eighth year, size!Kink, small cock, shower!sex, first time, light D/s, bottom!harry
Summary: “No one asked you to look, did they?” Draco said, eyes glittering and intent on Harry’s face—like he’d just wiped off the years and turned back in time to when their greatest ambition in life had been to knock the other off his broom in front of the school and grab the Snitch first, before they’d both gone to war and come back with scars.
Holy GOD is this fic ever hot! Small Penis/Size!Kink can be hit or miss for for me, but it was seriously smoking hot in this fic. The sex was phenomenal, and I really enjoyed watching Harry and Draco evolve beyond the sex, and discover their place at Hogwarts. Awesome fic!

Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lomonaaeren
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 5,900
Rating: Mature
Content/Warnings: eighth year, bottom!harry, slight holiday!fic
Summary: Ever since Harry came back to Hogwarts for his eighth year, Malfoy has been responding to everything anyone does with half a smile. It doesn’t take long for Harry to realize that what he really wants is something more.
I really liked the concept here, it totally would drive Harry a bit mad trying to figure out what the half-smile means and wanting to get more of a reaction from Draco. And then seeing how that turned into a friendship and then something more was lovely. That ending was so wonderful and sexy and fabulous! <3

Summary: Harry hadn't expected to spend his eighth year fucking Draco Malfoy, but it's the only thing that helps him let go.
Super hot and sneakily feelsy fic with Harry and Draco messing around and playing with kink. I really liked the approach to the Imperious play here, and felt the discussions around the kink and consent and how Draco and Harry felt about everything was really well done.

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~6,500
Content/Warnings: eighth year, bottom!draco
Summary: One beautiful sunny Sunday the Slytherins woke up after a raunchy night only to discover that a very naked Harry Potter had slept amongst them. Naturally, they asked themselves a logical question: Who the hell shagged him?

Really lovely 8th year fic with Harry and Draco using the same hidden alcove for studying and striking up a friendship. There is some great banter in this one, and Draco is so adorably smitten. Also, features Draco being obsessed with Harry's fabulously messy hair, which I can never have enough of.

Word Count: 8,000
Content/Warnings: DH compliant, EWE, eighth year, hd_smoochfest 2010
Summary: Harry notices something not quite right about Draco, and, true to form, doesn't relent until he figures it out. Of course, Draco doesn’t appreciate being 'figured out' and makes things very difficult.
Such a unique concept of Draco being forced to follow orders because of the imperius curse's lingering effects.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 8,624
Content/Warnings: bottom!draco, first time
Summary: Harry misplaces an interesting "self-help" manual. Draco finds it and discovers some fascinating insights into Harry Potter.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~10,500
Content/Warnings: eighth year, spanking, light D/s, blindfolds, light bondage, room of requirement, hd_cliche 2013
Summary: The Room of Requirement was definitely broken. Why else would it be presenting Harry with a whip, some handcuffs, a blindfold, and a... what exactly was that thing, anyway?
Sexy spanking fic + Draco and Harry exploring kinks. Hot and funny. Harry's voice is perfect here.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 11,800
Content/Warnings: eighth year, bottom!harry
Summary: The Bacchanalia is a time of madness, of feasting, of orgies—and of crossing boundaries.

This is seriously fantastic! Love 8th year and forced proximity, and so fun how the Room of Requirement is worked in! The sex was hot as hell and that dirty talk just about killed me!

Content/Warnings: eighth year, dirty talk, first time, outdoor!sex, first person POV, bottom!harry, hd_eighthyear 2015
Summary: When eighth year turns out to be just as unpleasant as Draco had suspected, he looks for something positive he can do for himself. Like trying to teach himself how to swim in the Great Lake. Only things don't go as planned when Potter somehow finds out.
Great fic with a particularly wonderful Draco. I loved his voice here and watching him struggle with his indifference towards everything after the war was beautifully believable. Luckily Harry comes along to help him find some of his emotions again. ;)

Title: Greenhouse Lessons

Summary: "Come on, boys," Zabini drawled. "You’re only delaying the inevitable."
Trouble always had a way of finding Harry, and eighth year was obviously going to be no exception.
Super wonderful read! Harry's voice here was brilliant, and sharp, prickly Draco was lovely and heart-breaking in his post-war angst. I thought the dynamic between them was really fantastic, and the whole thing was also hot as hell. :)

Title: Punishment

Summary: It's Harry and Draco's eighth year, the Houses have been all but demolished in favor of unity, and they're being forced to room together. How ever will they cope?
I loved the build-up, and the new take on the dorm shake-up, and appearances by all my favorite hogwarts students! :)

Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 18,698
Rating: Mature
Content/Warnings: eighth year, bottom!harry, outdoor!sex
Summary: Harry discovers a book in Regulus Black’s bedroom the summer after the war—a book that tells him of a series of rites once widely practiced among wizards of all kinds, to combat the enemy of both Dark and Light. Fascinated, Harry starts delving deeper, and finds himself developing a slow friendship with Draco Malfoy, who can tell him more. A story spanning five parts.
Fun and interesting fic! I loved the concept of Shadow and the rituals Light and Dark wizards would do to keep it at bay. The rituals were wonderful and the thrumming tension was delicious.

Title: Twice as Much as an Earthquake
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] firethesound
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~19,000
Content/Warnings: eighth-year, bonding!fic, light bondage, light dub-con, shower!sex, bottom!draco, implied switching, first time, rimming, caught in the act, accidental exhibitionism,
Summary: Accidental bonding. Breaking and entering. Conspiring, however unwillingly, in the strange one-man war Malfoy's waging against detention. This isn't the normal school year Harry anticipated having, but at least it's not boring.
Such an awesome fic with an adorably insane Draco, a helplessly in-lust Harry, accidental bonding, and, of course, crazy hot sex! Loved the banter and it made me actually laugh out loud in places, which is pretty rare for me.

Title: An Issue of Consequence

Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 20,798
Content/Warnings: eighth year, established relationship, first time, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco has woken up in an alternate universe. Or he has woken up utterly insane. Nothing else can possibly explain why Harry Potter suddenly seems to think he's Draco's boyfriend.
Ooo this was so great! Loved the Draco logic, and Harry was so adorable. Fun twist at the end, plus, bonus epilogue sex is the best! Especially with witty banter and laughing and happiness involved.

Title: Love Comes Tumbling
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] taradiane
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~22,500
Content/Warnings: eighth year, hd_erised 2014
Summary: 'Harry's thoughts were of how much he would have done differently with Malfoy over the years, and of Dumbledore's final words to the other boy . . . "It is my mercy, and not yours, that matters now." Maybe, Harry wondered, he could find some mercy, too, and give Malfoy the second chance that Dumbledore had believed him worthy of.'
Wow, I just loved this! I adore eighth year fics and this captured so much of what I enjoy about them. I really liked this fic's take on Ron and Hermione's reactions to the relationship. It totally makes sense that they would both have reservations, and I thought it did a really great job portraying that, while still keeping them in character. Plus sizzling hot chemistry between Draco and Harry and a wonderful ending.

Summary: Harry and Draco take a potion that is supposed to link their hearts together, but end up connecting a different type of organ entirely.
The writing and characterizations in this were perfect and despite the somewhat cracky premise, it wasn't a crack!fic at all.

Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~25,000
Content/Warnings: AU: omega!verse, MPREG, a/b/o dynamics, infidelity, internalized homophobia, soulmates, eighth year, dirty talk, mild dub-con, rimming, first time, bottom!harry, hd_erised 2014
Summary: After returning to Hogwarts after the war, Harry realizes he has nothing to do. There is nothing to chase, or to fight. Why, then does he feel as if there is something pricking under his skin? And why does it feel like he’s struck by lightning every time Draco Malfoy touches him? There’s only one explanation: Draco Malfoy is up to something, and Harry has to find out what it is and put a stop to it.
JFC, this fic killed me with the hotness! So many of my favorites here, eighth year, the a/b/o aspects, the smoking hot dirty talk, dead sexy Draco fucking a Harry who is just mindlessly desperate for it...guhhh! I thought the concept of soulmates was super well done, and I enjoyed that they didn't just immediately fall in love with each other.

Word Count: ~25,000
Content/Warnings: recreational drug use, eighth year, hd_erised 2016
Summary: The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry's suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy's hoodie because seriously Hermione who gave that to him and is he wearing it just to torment me? This is ridiculous!
This fic is just utterly adorable and so much fun! The dialogue and banter between all of the characters is amazing, and watching Harry and Draco dance around each other before finally coming together is lovely. Harry's Draco obsession is out in full force here, and I had the biggest smile the entire time I was reading.

This series is pure, scorching hot, gold. Harry's voice is fabulous and funny, and he still manages to be sexy! All of the characterizations are spot on and the emotion and evolution of the Draco/Harry relationship is believable. And the smut! So hot! So many kinks!

Summary: The war is over and “eighth year” is about to begin at Hogwarts. But for Harry and Draco, nothing is quite the same. Harry’s looking for an escape, Draco’s looking for a friend. Does a little black bunny hold the answers for both of our boys?
Such a lovely eighth year fic with Harry becoming an adorable bunny animagus, and then Draco stumbling upon him and taking a liking to him. Harry and Draco were both really great in this, and watching their feelings grow and develop was wonderful. The sex was super hot and meaningful, and the whole fic was just a joy to read.

Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 41,023
Content/Warnings: AU, eighth year, light bondage, temporary major character deaths, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, switching, hd_smoochfest 2014
Summary: The new world order hasn't been kind to Draco and his family, and he wishes it could all be different. So does Harry, although not for the same reasons. But as Draco works to fix the mistakes he made in the past, he finds his reasons for doing so changing in a way he never expected.
Wow this was just fantastic! I had some difficulty figuring out which section to put this is (you'll understand once you read), but a good chunk takes place during 8th year. I really loved seeing all the ways things changed based on the different decisions Draco made and how he tried to change things. Very interesting and powerful story. And the companion piece is wonderful. It takes the last timeline from the first fic, and fills in all the backstory. Super cool!

Content/Warnings: Eighth year, bonding!fic, bottom!draco, dub-con
Summary: Harry was going back to school. He was going to play Quidditch, sleep in lessons, hang out with his friends, and generally just enjoy being a kid for a change. And he was also going to do it while being bonded with Malfoy, because apparently life was just going to continue throwing curveballs at him. Harry didn't know why he expected anything different.
Really great eighth year bonding!fic that forces Draco to be bonded to Harry for a year in order to stay out of Azkaban. The aspects of the bonding spell were very interesting, and I enjoyed seeing how that affected their dynamic.

Summary: Harry never expected to spend eighth year listening to Draco Malfoy wanking.
Wow, this fic was just such a brilliant example of why I adore eighth year fics! I love Harry's headspace here, and how he and everybody else are still dealing with the aftermath of the war, while attempting to move on. Draco and Harry as dorm-mates and all of their interaction are fantastic, and I loved how the whole ~wanking~ thing build and evolves. It touching and sexy and moving and just a really enjoyable read. :D

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 47,000
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, eighth year, mind altering substance: potion
Summary: A Christmassy Hogwarts fic in which Harry is a love bomb, Draco has a plan, Millicent recites sonnets, and everyone misunderstands everything. Wait, that summary sucks, let me try again: Kissy fic filled with kisses. Better? No. Okay.
Fun and sexy love potion fic with a twist!

Title: The Promise of Summer

Word Count: ~67,000
Content/Warnings: eighth-year, Room of Requirement, sentient!hogwarts, [community profile] hd_erised​ 2019
Summary: How was Harry supposed to know that coming back for eighth- year would be so confusing? Everything is the same, and yet not the same. And nowhere is this more obvious than with Draco Malfoy. Harry finds himself once more watching and following Malfoy, trying to work him out. When they are drawn together to heal the castle, Harry doesn’t just find Malfoy—he also finds himself.
Such a wonderful 8th year fic! The slow build here was lovely, and I really appreciated the care the author gave to the headspace the characters might be in so soon after the war.

Title: Right Hand Red

Content/Warnings: eighth year, first time, shower!sex, car!sex, bottom!draco, secret relationship, harrybang 2015
Summary:Harry felt Malfoy's breath on his lips as they came together over the bottle, hands firmly planted on the floor as though they each needed their familiar soil, refusing to cross into enemy territory.
Except that Malfoy no longer felt like his enemy.
Malfoy felt inevitable.
Oh this was such a brilliant, brilliant read! This is my favorite kind of 8th year fic and the whole thing was such a joy from start to finish. Harry's voice here was especially fabulous, seeing him notice Malfoy and come to terms with his feelings, and then seeing him and Draco become closer was just wonderful. The party games were super fun, and the side characters were really such a wonderful addition. Not to mention the smoking hot sex and the beyond gorgeous artwork!

Title: Ancient and Noble Houses
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] lomonaaeren
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Hermione/Ron
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 80,010
Content/Warnings: eighth year, dub-con
Summary: Harry finds out that being the Black heir means far more than just inheriting some money and property. Even with Draco Malfoy's help, the chance that Harry can escape the consequences seems slim.
Lomonaaeren always has the most fascinating fic ideas and the concept of the Houses being almost sentient beings that influence their heirs was well-written and creepy. This fic has some darker themes than I normally read, but it is really wonderfully done and such an interesting read!

Summary: Now that Harry is back at Hogwarts with Hermione for eighth year, he realises that something’s missing from his life, and it either has to do with Ron, his boggart, Snape, or Malfoy. Furthermore, what, exactly, does it mean when one’s life is defined by the desire to simultaneously impress and annoy a portrait? Harry has no idea; he’s too busy trying not to be in love with Malfoy to care.
This fic was truly fantastic. There are a lot of things here that I wasn't sure would work (Ron and Hermione with different people, Harry as a potions master, Ron breaking away from the Trio) but it so, so does and it all works out and you don't feel sad about things at ALL. Harry in this is well-written and his interactions with everybody were perfect. And the potions work as a foundation for the story was wonderful and interesting! Bonus sequel is porny and awesome with bottom!harry and some hot, underwater!sex.

Summary: Seven months after the end of the war, Harry is feeling lost. Fortunately, he is about to be offered an unexpected and sparkling chance to find himself again.
Such a fabulous, fabulous fic! Harry and Draco get in trouble and have to watch over some magical creatures together as punishment. So of course, lots of bonding, and sexual tension, and wonderfulness occurs! The frost snails are a lovely concept and the relationship here between Harry and Draco was so lovely and fabulously paced. Gorgeous writing and hot sex, what more can you ask for?

Summary: Harry only wanted Malfoy for one night, one birthday. It wasn’t meant to be anything more.
I'm not super keen on MPREG, but it's Femme, so of course this was amazing! Beautiful characterizations, lovely build, and just an all-around amazing read that gave me all the feels!

Summary: Hogwarts students are in danger; Harry is determined to save them all. There's only one thing he knows for certain: Draco Malfoy is somehow involved.
Great 8th year fic with lots of plot and some wonderfully authentic characterizations. The build between Harry and Draco was nice and slow, and I really enjoyed watching Harry slowly start to realize what his feelings meant and then plow forward in typical bold Gryffindor fashion. I thought the plot was super interesting, and the author did some really cool things I don't think I've seen done before, which made for an exciting ride. Wonderful side characters, some really great interactions between Harry and Draco, and a very satisfying ending made for a pleasant afternoon of reading. :)

Summary: Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.
When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?
Such a brilliant fic! The characterization are amazing here, and I just loved the relationships between everybody and the wonderful dialogue. There are a million details here that had been grinning with delight, and the build between Draco and Harry was just fantastic. Really cool take on the soulmark trope, and just an enjoyable read all around.

Summary: Harry thinks that he's already spent quite enough time sharing a mind with someone else, thankyouverymuch. A miscast Legilimency spell says otherwise...
A fun and realistic take on the forced bonding trope.
