Title: Reading Malfoy
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Hermione/Ron, Luna/Rolf, Ginny/OMC, past Ginny/Harry, past Draco/OMCs
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 15,027
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, author!draco, implied bottom!draco, hd_fan_fair's book fair 2013
Summary: After thirteen years of hiding himself away in Muggle London, Draco Malfoy shows up again in the wizarding world--with a wickedly amusing memoir in hand. Harry doesn't want to read it. Really. He doesn't.
This fic had some of the most realistic characters I have read. Both Harry and Draco are broken, but not defeated and I loved watching them come together in this.
Title: The Way These Days Seem to Go (And Go)
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 15,130
Content/Warnings: Auror Draco, hd_fan_fair Food Fair 2018
Summary: Stress baking isn’t a hobby Harry ever thought he’d pick up, but he’s surprised to find how much it helps him to get through those long months post-war. It keeps his hands busy, it keeps his mind occupied, and when Draco Malfoy steadily pushes his way back into Harry's life, it helps with that too.
This fic was curling up on a comfy sofa with cup of hot tea and a delicious scone on a drizzly day. It was lovely and warm and wonderfully written. The characterizations were fantastic, the relationships between all of the characters here were perfection, and the build between Draco and Harry was a delight. Plus, as somebody who's dabbled in baking as a coping mechanism, Harry as a stress baker and all of his adventures were SO relatable!
Title: Let him lead me to the banquet
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 16,066
Content/Warnings: *my prompt, hd_fan_fair Food Fair 2018
Summary: The worst part is Harry’s got no idea why Malfoy keeps sending him invites. He’s never replied to a single one. And if the whole dinner is as exclusive and sought-after as the Prophet keeps breathlessly reporting, then presumably the only reason Malfoy wants him there is in his capacity as the Chosen One. So, really, he can fuck right off. Harry doesn’t care about Draco Malfoy’s redemption tour. And he’s certainly not going to help him with it.
Honestly, this fic was SUCH a delight! The characterizations were spot-on, I adored the interactions between every single character, and the growth here was just lovely to read.
Title: Slice of Life
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ginny/Luna, brief Draco/OMC, past Harry/Ginny
Word Count: 16,314
Warnings/Content: Non-linear timeline, rimming, post-sex fingering, bottom!harry, portrait!snape, hd_fan_fair Food Fair 2018
Summary: Luna and Ginny are worried about Harry, Greg is a very fine baker, Snape's portrait has a lot of opinions and Draco Malfoy is (probably) up to something. In which one man's love for a jam tart blossoms into a different kind of love entirely.
This fic was such a wonderful read. I'm generally not one for a non-linear timelines, but it was used really effectively here and the flashbacks were brilliantly chose to compliment the present day narrative. The characterizations were really lovely, and it was wonderful watching Harry and Draco come together, this time for good! And the art! The art is gorgeous and pairs perfectly with this lovely fic! :D
Title: Days of the Week Series (2 Fics)
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny
Word Count: 16,478 total
Rating: Hard R
Summary: The absolute last place Harry expected to see Malfoy was in a rundown Muggle cinema on a Tuesday night.
This was such a lovely and sweet fic. It starts out with Ginny leaving Harry because he isn't in love with her and deserves to be more than content. And then he runs into a down-on-his-luck Draco at a Muggle movie theatre and starts to get to know him and it is just adorable and fantastic. And the companion piece is sweet and fluffy.
Title: And Back Again (Where You Belong)
Pairings: Harry/Draco, mentioned past Harry/others
Word Count: 16,000
Content/Warnings: rimming, drunk!sex, bottom!draco, friends with benefits, auror!harry
Summary: He thought back on their previous handshakes, and smiled faintly at the fact they always seemed to mean so much more to him than they did to Potter.
This fic is really wonderful, with a lot of fabulous little details that really hook you in. I love how Harry and Draco's relationship starts here, with Harry wanting something casual and afraid to admit his feelings/sexuality, and Draco being the one who wants more, and really ends up being the brave one when it comes to his feelings, making the necessary change when things don't work out the first time around. Draco is seriously wonderful in this and when things finally fall into place with Harry it's lovely and sexy and just awesome.
Title: Fata Morgana locked to AO3 users
Word Count: ~16,500
Content/Warnings: unusual jobs, hd_erised 2014
Summary: “It’s only a mirage,” they tell Draco (and Pepper). “You must be imagining,” they dismiss him in turn. But Draco Malfoy is certain something is out there, and, come hell or Harry Potter, he’ll find out. He will.
Awesome, almost fairy-tale like, fic. Draco here is absolute perfection, with his adorable crup, and his cheeky house elf, and his strict routines. The whole island mystery was really great, interesting and intriguing, but not overwhelming. The writing is fabulous and the entire thing is just enchanting.

Content/Warnings: auror!harry, dub-con, face-fucking, dirty talk, light praise!kink, bottom!harry, window!sex, light D/s, mild clothing!kink, *my prompt, dracotops_harry 2016
Summary: As a top trader, Draco has power and money, suits and cars, houses and good champagne - everything a person could want. So when Auror Potter comes looking for help, Draco can't think of anything that might persuade him to lend a hand.
Well...maybe one thing.
Oh my goodness this fic is awesome! Dead fucking hot with all kinds of delicious things like dub-con and face-fucking and dirty talk, with a hint of praise!kink and suit!kink to boot! I love the idea of Muggle-living Draco who isn't just barely making it by working in some coffee shop, but seriously living large with champagne and private jets and fancy gadgets. Draco's voice here is wonderful, and the banter between him and Harry is seriously delightful. The ending does living things rather open ended, but I thought it worked great with the fic and left me free to imagine all kinds of delicious future possibilities. Wonderful read all around.
Title: Visions No. 33 to 35
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Luna/Pansy, past Harry/Ginny and Draco/OMC
Word Count: 16,947
Art Medium: Watercolor and Polychromos color pencils on paper.
Content/Warnings: Auror!Harry, Seer!Draco, Artist!Draco, cursed!draco, mystery/horror elements, first time, bottom!draco, implied switching, implied off-screen cannibalism, hdtropes 2019
Summary: In which Draco is a Seer and artist, living with Pansy and Luna in a secluded house, working on occasion with the Ministry of Magic (not that he’s thrilled but solving crimes from afar seems like a worthy cause on some days) until Vision No. 33 brings Potter to his doorstep.
This fic was super fascinating! I have a soft spot for Seer!Draco, and Draco's backstory here and how he came into his powers and the additional ~curse~ upon him was utterly gripping. The dynamics between him and Harry was fantastic, and I just adored the build of tension.
Title: Fear and all His Friends
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Word Count: ~17,000
Warnings/Content: Auror!Harry, Auror!Draco, Auror partners, bottom!draco, implied switching, hd_erised 2017
Summary: While on assignment, Harry and Draco get stuck in a house far out in the woods, a house that seems intent on exploiting their darkest fears.
Oh gosh, this fic is so good! It's got a brilliantly spooky atmosphere, and the way the case forces Harry and Draco to deal with their relationship, as well as acknowledging the trauma in their pasts, was really fabulous.
Title: Common and Cliché
Word count: ~17,000
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, auror!draco, bottom!harry, implied bottom!draco, holiday!fic (beltane)
Summary: Aurors Malfoy and Potter have to work a case on Beltane. It would be simple if everything wasn't so damn distracting.... For those of you who are wondering, yes, I've tried to cram in as many h/d clichés as possible. But hopefully the story works as a story, too. It's not crack!fic by a long shot but it is a bit tongue-in-cheek.
This fic is great. I love the sexual tension of beltane and the misunderstandings and the hot sex and happy ending! :)
Word count: ~17,363
Content/Warnings: fake/pretend relationship (sort of), bottom!harry
Summary: Draco snorted. “I’m not reduced to penury. I want something considerably beyond money, and I rather think you’re the only one can give it to me.”
“You want the Invisibility Cloak,” Harry said, flatly. He’d half expected as much; it was the only thing he had that Draco could want—
“Don’t be stupid, Potter,” Draco said. “I want my reputation back.”
Oh this fic was just delightful! LOVED Draco's characterization in this, and the chemistry between him and Harry was fantastic. Really wonderful relationship development and an interesting plot. I really liked Draco's job here. :)
Title: The Astronaut Phase and sequelet Gravity
Pairing: Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny
Word count: ~17,000 and ~700
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, criminal!draco, bottom!harry, first time
Summary: This is for twistedm. It's a little bit of Harry/Draco whimsy inspired by her comment that rather than casting Ginny as a villain, she prefers to see her "doing something amazing and feminist and far, far away.
Really interesting fic that has Ginny as an astronaut, and Harry sort of moorless in his staid life. And then Draco comes along whose sexy and interesting and just sucks him into his orbit. Super sexy and wonderfully written.
♥ Title: Potter’s Parselprostate (and the Chamber of Secrets)
Word Count: 17,437
Content/Warnings: mild dub-con, dirty talk, parseltongue!kink, bottom!harry, dracotops_harry 2014
Summary: Hogwarts’ future depends on Malfoy’s texts. Too bad the key is up Potter’s arse.
OMG. This fic was so good! So funny, but without getting too cracky, which, is seriously impressive considering the premise! And JFC the sex!! So many of my kinks, but especially the dirty talk! Some of the best I've read in awhile. I just loved the tone of the fic and the light-hearted banter and the sexing and just, this was amazing.
Title: Weeds or Wildflowers
Author: sdk and lq_traintracks
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione, brief mention of Draco/OMCs
Word Count: ~17,500
Content/Warnings: dirty talk, bottom!Draco, spanking, rough sex, professor!harry, unusual jobs, hd_erised 2016
Summary: A perfect match, a romance for the ages, with a one hundred percent success rate! Magic Match claims they can give Draco all of this. So why do they keep sending him on dates with Harry Potter?
This fic was great! Loved the matchmaking service, and the fact that, no matter what Draco's answers, he always ended up matched with Harry. There were some seriously funny moments here, and Draco's voice was just perfect. And it was all capped off with some amazing sex and a lovely ending.
Title: Twenty-four Reasons to Remember
Word Count: 17,700
Content/Warnings: established relationship, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, holiday!fic
Summary: Harry has almost forgotten what it is to be happy in love and life, until Draco gives him twenty-four chances to remember.
Slightly less fluffy than most advent fics, but not too angsty! Draco and Harry are busy with work and haven't really made their relationship a priority. Draco wants them to be remember why they work well together and fell in love, so he come up with an advent calendar of sorts to help Harry remember. This was touching, and sweet, and realistic, and sexy.
♥ Title: Sex, Lies, and Veritaserum
Word Count: 17,953
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, implied bottom!draco, established relationship, auror!harry, dirty talk, mention/discussion of: D/s, felching, object insertion, food porn, exhibitionism, spanking, cross-dressing, and, I don’t know, throw in like a consensual orgy,
Summary: This entire fic is one long conversation about sex.
I love the concept of this fic, where Draco is self-conscious about his desires, so he takes veritaserum so he can ask Harry for what he wants. And the conversation they have, god, it is so filthy and hot, love me some dirty talk.
Title: Partners of the Four-Legged Variety
Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Word Count: 17,977
Warnings/Content: glasses!Draco, unusual jobs, forced proximity, auror!harry, praise kink, dirty talk, bottom!harry, rimming, implied switching, *my prompt, hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: “Training starts in the home, Potter, so your new Crup and I will need to stay with you for a few weeks while I show you how to properly train and bond with him.”
The Auror Department is instating a K9 Crup Unit, and Harry is the first to sign up. Turns out the professional trainer is Draco Malfoy, and he has to live with Harry as part of the Crup training programme.
This fic is just awesome! Draco as a crup trainer is adorably sexy, and of course, Harry is smitten right away, both with Draco, and his sweet new crup partner. We get both Harry and Draco's POV here, and their voices and characterizations are really great. It was wonderfully watching them come together so naturally, and the crup training along the way was seriously lovely.
Title: The Coefficient of Friction
Pairing: Draco/Harry, brief Harry/Ginny background Hermione/Ron
Word Count: ~18,000
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, rimming, auror!harry, outdoor!sex, dracotops_harry 2015
Summary: The war is over, the Death Eater trials are complete, life in the wizarding world is finally getting back to normal, and Harry Potter is restless. Unsure of what he really wants and growing increasingly confused in his personal life, Harry decides to take a holiday—alone—to clear his mind and find himself. He books a trip to a wizarding resort, expecting to be the lone guest, only to find out Draco Malfoy will be there as well. Falling back on old habits, Harry determines Malfoy must be up to something. In his search to uncover Malfoy’s secrets, Harry inadvertently does what he had meant to all along— find himself.
Such a wonderful, enjoyable fic! The descriptions of the island made me quite desperate for a summer vacation, and I really adored this slightly confused Harry who keeps putting his foot in his mouth.

Content/Warnings: non-linear timeline, Auror!Harry, Unspeakable!Draco, case!fic, fake/pretend relationship, friends with benefits, intercrural sex, open/ambiguous ending, possible dub-con, hdtropes 2019
Summary: The DMLE thought sending Harry and Draco on a few dates would blow their biggest case wide open. They may be right about that – and completely unaware of what it could mean.
Oh my goodness, this fic! I was captivated from the get-go and literally could not stop reading! Gorgeous characterizations, seriously smoking hot sex, and some really, really clever writing that leaves some key aspects of the plot ambiguous enough for the reader to have to make their own decisions. It's one of those fics that I both desperately want more of, and also think is absolutely perfect exactly how it ended.

Word Count: ~18,500

Content/Warnings: AU sometime before DH, bottom!draco
Summary: Lovelorn Draco has been secretly pining for Harry for months. He's finally forced into action when ex-boyfriend Blaise shows up. A gift!fic for Prof. McKitten starring an awkward, smitten Draco and a cameo by Harry's chest monster.

Content/Warnings: hd_smoochfest 2015
Summary: Harry cursed the day he’d ever made the stupid bet with Ron because that bet was what had led to him being naked in front of a Muggle art class. Of course Draco Malfoy had to be taking the class, because that’s just how Harry’s life worked.
Oh this such a fun and charming read! The author does such a wonderful job of selling the plot and Draco here is just drop dead sexy. Harry's POV was delightful and I adored the dynamic between them here.

Summary: In which Harry thinks he’s a playboy, everyone else knows better, and Hermione will kill Seamus if Ron tries to collect on that bet.
Seriously hot fic with Harry and Draco in a friends with benefits type relationship and Harry convinced that he's totally not ready for anything more. But, of course, his friends know better, and convince him to go on blind dates to their weddings. The dates are a disaster (though luckily they end in fabulous sex with Draco!) and Harry begins to realize what, or rather who, he truly wants. Fun and sexy read.

When he’s injured in the line of duty, he refuses treatment from anyone except Healer Malfoy, who is befuddled but perfectly willing to find out what this means.
This fic was fantastic and fascinating! I loved the idea of uni and the magical military and the fusion of these ideas into the magical world was so well done! And the dynamic between Ron and Harry, and, of course, Harry and Draco was just too perfect.

Or: Hermione has a crafty plan, Harry and Draco are fake boyfriends and wizarding traditions have a lot to answer for. Featuring awkward dates, mince pies, a saucy sofa and a line of sequined house-elf haute couture nobody asked for but got anyway.
Oh gosh, this fic is such a delight! Lovely use of the fake/pretend relationship trope, and the chemistry between Harry and Draco here is off the charts. Fun and sexy and just a really wonderful, satisfying read.

So much to love. LOVE Draco as a thief, the profession just suits him I think. And the bantering and chemistry between him and Harry was just fantastic. Luna as an auror (and as Ginny's lover) was fantastic. Fun style and the ending was adorable and sweet.
