Title: A Future Unknown
Author: [personal profile] omi_ohmy
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, Ron/Hermione/Pansy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 25,148
Notes: bottom!draco, auror!harry, healer!draco, cursed!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's book fair 2013
Summary: Draco had always thought that the ability to see the future would have saved him a lot of grief. The choices are no easier, however, when he is cursed to see an endless set of futures featuring Harry Potter.
This fic was lovely. I loved the subtle ways the visions invade Draco's life and his growing relationship with Hermione and Harry. Pansy is perfection in this, both with Draco and Hermione.

Title: The Boy and the Sleeping Prince
Author: [personal profile] writcraft
Artist: [personal profile] phoenixacid
Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, background Neville Longbottom/Ginny Weasley, Ron Weasley/Hermione Granger
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~25k for main story / ~1k for the fairy tale
Art Medium: Graphite
Career Choices: Harry: Illustrator; Draco: Writer
Warnings/Content: unusual jobs, author!draco, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's career fair 2015
Summary: Harry is miserable and tired of being an Auror, coasting through life until he’s forced to make some changes. Spurred on by his passion for drawing and working with best-selling author Draco Malfoy, Harry develops a charm which gives children a magical, interactive reading experience. But when it’s time to test the spell, the two men find themselves trapped in a nightmarish fairy tale world. Can they escape unscathed, or is Draco right in his assertions that there is no such thing as a happily ever after?
Oh wow, this is so fantastic! Such a powerful story and I love the twist on the fairy tale trope. I thought Draco as a writer and Harry as an illustrator was very believable done and I really liked how they end up working together in this one. The pacing was so wonderful here, with the fic moving from the familiar and getting darker as they progress in their fairy tale world. I adored Harry and Draco's relationship and how they interacted with each other and how that changed over the course of them working together and being stuck together. The accompanying fairy tale is wonderful and actually answers a few questions raised in the ending of the original fic. Captivating read, and the art is really magical.

Title: Two’s Company, Three’s a Crowd
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] kiraohara
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Harry/Draco/OMC, Draco/OMC
Word Count: 26,459
Rating: NC-17
Content/Warnings: threesome, m/m/m, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, rockstar!harry, hd_smoochfest 2009
Summary: Draco's partner invites 'Muggle' friend Harry Evans to join them, with Draco's permission of course.
I don't usually love threesomes for my boys but this one was ridiculously hot and it worked with the plot perfectly.

Title: The Deeper Symbolism Behind Golden Apples
Author/Artist: [personal profile] oldenuf2nb
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Pansy/Dean, Ron/Hermione
Rating: R
Word Count: 26,716
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, artist!draco, past relationship, [community profile] hd_erised 2015
Summary: When the Wizengamot insists Chief Auror Harry Potter pose for a statue for the Ministry Atrium, why are his friends reluctant to tell him who the sculptor is?
Past relationship fics can be a little hit or miss for me, as I find them often too angsty for my taste, but I thought this one was perfectly balanced. Sculptor Draco was incredibly cool and well done, and the relationship between Harry and Draco made for a beautiful read.

Title: A Ghost in the Garden
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thistle-verse
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione, Millicent/Greg, Pansy/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~27,000
Content/Warnings: Auror!Harry, Auror!Draco, case!fic, shared bed, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_erised 2016
Summary: That night Draco dreams, and he is the ghost in his garden. He is both silvered figment and his own solid and flesh face pressing against the window, watching. Spinning and spun, haunting and haunted. Turned and turning, an open mouth with no sound.
Harry and Draco are thrown together on an investigation into a sinister political movement.
Such a wonderfully engaging fic! The writing here is gorgeous, and I LOVE Draco here. Harry is very much present, but the H/D almost feels secondary to the almost character-study of Draco. Really interesting case and just a super fantastic read!

Title: Wish Upon a Star (As Dreamers Do) (locked to users on AO3)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] icmezzo
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (secondary Neville/Hannah, Hermione/Ron)
Rating: R
Word Count: ~27,000
Warnings/Content: unusual jobs, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's career fair 2014
Summary: There’s plant magic and celestial magic and dark magic and the normal magic that allows Harry to use a spell to clean his socks when Myrtle’s taken up in his laundry room again. Then there are wishes, and dreams, and love, and those are even more magical still.
Seriously amazing fic and really wonderfully written. It's funny and sweet with great characterization of Harry and Draco and some truly fantastically fitting jobs for the both of them. Their relationship evolves so perfectly and I really loved their connection. This was such a job to read, cannot recommend it enough!

Title: Last City
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] zeitgeistic
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, past Astoria/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,500
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, The Bachelor fusion, first time, sex toys, bottom!harry, dracotops_harry 2014
Summary: Twenty-four Twenty-three men, six cities, and one unusual sexual requirement.
This was just crazy amazing. I have to confess that I don't like these kinds of shows in RL, but I loved this fic, how it manages to be sweet and sexy and touching and just a smidgeon angsty. The side characters were all amazing: Hermione was perfect, loved sneaky Ron, and Luna's commentary killed me! And the connection between Draco and Harry just jumped off the screen. Draco swearing up a storm was hilarious and I loved how much he just got Harry. AND JFC the sex was crazy hot, love love loved the dynamic!

Title: Here and Now
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Morgan_Elektra
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, mention of past Harry/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,829
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, rimming, implied switching, dirty talk
Summary: It’s been 5 years since the end of the war, but less than a week since Rita Skeeter outed Harry on the front page of The Prophet — and made some rather scandalous insinuations about him and his blond former nemesis. A chance (or is it?) encounter on a street corner reveals just how much has changed… and what remains the same. An over-sized courgette, some olive oil, a bottle of wine, and Ed Kowalczyk make things extra interesting.
Really lovely, sexy fic! It gets a bit overly descriptive at times and maybe moved a little too fast, but I really just adored this confident Draco and adorably smitten Harry. And the sex was crazy hot!

Title: Bound To You
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] agentmoppet
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Content/Warnings: Bonding!fic, CurseBreaker!Draco, unusual jobs, bottom!harry, [community profile] hd_erised 2016
Summary: Hag magic is capricious and unruly, and Harry and Draco are bound to stay by each other’s side until they can solve the riddle. In between long car trips, misty rain, and midnight star charts, they begin to understand each other.
I do love me some bonding!fics and this one did not disappoint! The cause of the bonding--a hag curse--was super interesting and clever, and the way the curse worked to bring them together and provide insight into one another was really well done. Interesting plot and a great build. :)

Title: I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor
Author: [personal profile] birdsofshore
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Content/Warnings: Homophobia (some internalised, plus verbal and physical abuse), club!fic, coming out, first time, bottom!Harry, implied switching, voyeurism, semi-public sex, [community profile] hd_erised 2015
Summary: Harry felt lit up from inside as soon as he entered the bar. There were blokes dancing together, their bodies close to one another, not keeping a wary distance as Harry was always careful to do when he was near another man. God, he wanted this – wanted it so much he could taste it, a metallic tang of heat and desire. He suspected nothing would ever be the same again – especially when he saw who else was in the room.
This fic is really just wonderful. It's got a Harry starting to really, truly come to terms with his sexuality, and a Draco who, as per usual, drives Harry mad. The UST here is fabulous,and even better when things finally come to a head. Wonderful, gripping read, and a great ending.

Title: Picture Perfect
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Selden
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, auror!fic, case!fic, [community profile] hd_erised 2015
Summary: Portraits across Wizarding Britain are being attacked ... from inside the frame. Can the Auror’s Sketch Department (sole employees Messrs Potter and Malfoy) solve the mystery?
Oh this was such a cool and clever fic. I loved the characterizations and interactions between Harry and Draco here, and the whole idea of the sketch department was beyond fascinating.

Title: Arctic Fox
Author: scrtkpr
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, non-graphic Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Content/Warnings: first time, bottom!draco, hd_holidays 2007
Summary: “Isn’t that Draco Malfoy? He keeps looking at you, Harry.”
Gosh, this fic is so good! It starts pretty immediately after the war and goes up until that first Christmas and the author does such an amazing job with the characterizations. Harry's headspace was perfect, and really all of the interactions were awesome. I enjoyed watching Harry and the rest of the gang start to warm up to Draco, while still really acknowledging their pasts.

Title: Higher and Higher (Temptation)
Author: [personal profile] birdsofshore
Pairing: Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,482
Content/Warnings: first person POV, auror!harry, cursebreaker!draco, collars, dub-con, bottom!harry, light D/s, dracotops_harry 2016
Summary: Only Harry Potter could manage to put on a magical collar on impulse and find himself unable to take it off again. Now following Draco’s direct orders gives him intense pleasure, and Draco has a whole heap of troubles to deal with, not least the way Potter looks when the collar has him gasping with bliss. The whole situation would test the morals of a saint... and Draco’s no saint.
This fic was seriously so good! I have such a thing for collars, and the side effects of this one were truly delicious! I loved how the issues of consent in this situation were really well covered, and seeing both Harry and Draco react to one another under these altered circumstance was great. The tension builds so beautifully between them with every command, and the ending was more than satisfying!

Title: Rough Magic
Author: [personal profile] birdsofshore
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,500
Content/Warnings: first time, outdoor!sex, bottom!harry, light D/s, light bondage, light dub-con, [community profile] hd_erised 2014
Summary: Malfoy's magic has run wild. But though wild magic is unpredictable and greatly feared, Harry's damned if he's going to let Malfoy rot in St Mungo's while they work out what to do with him.
JFC this fic is everything I ever wanted. I really loved the concept of wild magic and how it sort of flipped with Draco being the out-of-control one. The connection between Draco and Harry was just electric and their chemistry was fabulous. And the sex! The light D/s themes were perfect, and I liked how there was a reason for Harry's submission and how much he really loved it. Super freaking hot!

Title: Promises to Keep and sequel Worth Keeping
Author: silentauror
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/OFC, background Ron/Hermione, Dean/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,112 and 4,760
Content/Warnings: semi epilogue compliant, infidelity, bottom!draco, implied switching, sort of bonding!fic, the eros affair
Summary: Written for The Eros Affair: Harry to Draco: I promise to go down on you. H/D, DH spoilers.
Really lovely fic with Harry running into Draco while at the playground with his children, and them feeling an instantaneous connection. I really liked Harry's headspace here, his confusion about his attraction to Draco, his strained marriage with Ginny, his love for his children. The relationship development between Draco and Harry is a little fast, but the chemistry between them is scorching. Satisfying ending, and the whole thing felt very believable with both it's ups and downs.

Title: Rarely Pure and Never Simple

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~29,000
Content/Warnings: bodyguard!harry, bottom!draco, implied switching, cursed!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's book fair 2013
Summary: Harry never thought taking a job as Draco Malfoy's bodyguard was going to be easy. Add in a curse that makes Malfoy even more of an obnoxious git than usual, and Harry's got serious problems.
This was quite a funny fic. Draco gets cursed and can only speak the truth, which, as you can imagine, leads to some hilarious confrontations, especially with Harry as his hot bodyguard. Loved the concept and th emotion in this. And a lovely Luna Lovegood.

Title: Most Arrogant and Loving of Men

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/OFCs, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~30,197
Content/Warnings: first time, bottom!harry, auror!harry, dracotops_harry
Summary: Harry knows very well that he’s showing the mask of the Savior to everyone around him—his friends, his lovers, his enemies—but he doesn’t know how to stop. The part of him that wants things to be different is selfish and greedy. He doesn’t see any way to express it and not have his life explode…until Draco Malfoy, of all people, realizes it’s there.
Oh, this was gorgeously satisfying! I loved reading about Draco spoiling Harry and watching Harry slowly learn that he deserved to be pampered!

Title: Obliviation and Obliviation Outtake
Author: [personal profile] dysonrules
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17

Summary: When Harry decides to quit Auror Training in order to care for young Teddy over the summer, he has quite enough to worry about without Pansy Parkinson dumping a mute Draco Malfoy on his doorstep. Now he has to figure out who attacked Malfoy and why he was Obliviated, all while trying to ignore his growing attraction to the man. // Draco reflects on his sketchy memories while living with Harry and Teddy.
Something has happened to Draco and he is missing a lot of his memories and the ability to speak. Teddy in this was adorable and it was lovely to see Draco getting to know teddy and Harry without this old animosity clouding his judgement, and for Harry to see another side of Draco.

Content/Warning: case!fic, auror!harry, hd_erised 2017
Summary: When memories from the war start surfacing in unexpected places, Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy find themselves spending a surprising amount of time inside each other’s heads.
Really fascinating case fic! I really loved Harry and Draco here, the animosity and prickliness as they work together on the super interesting case that comes up. I'm not usually one for non-explicit works, but this one kept me captivated throughout!

Summary: Draco never expected to see Harry doing that again. Especially with someone else, in a grainy photograph that's landed on his desk one Monday morning.
Really wonderfully written fic that gave me so many feels. Definitely a bit heartbreaking in places, but some seriously wonderful characterizations of Draco and Harry, with a really satisfying ending.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, Astoria/OFC, Ron/Hermione
Wordcount: 32,239

Content/Warnings: healer!harry, bottom!draco, implied bottom!harry, hd_worldcup round 1
Summary: Five years after the final battle at Hogwarts, Draco Malfoy has been paroled from Azkaban and works nights as a janitor at The Daily Prophet. Harry Potter, recently married to Ginny Weasley, is training as a Healer at St. Mungo's. One wastebasket=one head injury=our story.
I was a little surprised by how much I loved this fic, because the original ending isn't my favorite, but it really is perfect and it is beautifully written. Even better with the alternate ending. :)

Title: O Sinners, Let's Go Down
Author: [personal profile] birdsofshore
Artist: [personal profile] raitala
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~32,698
Content/Warnings: first time, religious!kink, dirty talk, semi-public!sex, hd_collab 2015
Summary: It seemed like such a straightforward plan ‒ a trip to Suffolk to research his mother's family tree and spend a few days relaxing by the seaside. Harry wasn't looking for anything more than that. He certainly wasn't looking for Draco Malfoy.
Really gorgeously written fic that handles themes of religion and spirituality and repression and forgiveness fantastically. The sexual tension between Harry and Draco builds beautifully and every scene between them jumps off the screen. Smoking hot and just a really great read.

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~33,000
Content/Warnings: auror!harry
Summary: Draco is in deep water, Harry can see straight through him, and that's not even the full scale of the problem.
This fic was awesome. Funny and sweet and beautifully written. The characterizations are spot-on, which is even more impressive when considering that Draco spends most of the fic as a catfish. Sounds silly, but it really works wonderfully. Super fun read!

Summary: After one fight too many, Aurors Draco and Harry are sent off to a counselling retreat. It turns out to not be quite what they had expected.
Really great read! The characters were all great here, and the development of Harry and Draco's feelings and relationship is wonderful. Some super hot sex, and a satisfying ending make this one well worth the read! There are some somewhat abrupt POV changes, but nothing too distracting.

Content/Warnings: actor!draco, bottom!draco, hd_smoochfest 2013
Summary: Harry Potter has spent the last seven years doing everything the Wizarding World’s saviour and Golden Boy shouldn’t – breaking it off with his childhood sweetheart, quitting Auror training, and living in isolation in Muggle London. Having just gotten out of an emotionally and financially abusive relationship, Harry hasn’t been out of his house in weeks. Meanwhile, after disappearing from the Wizarding World and moving to America for seven years, Draco Malfoy has become a famous Hollywood actor and is back in England to film his latest movie. When Draco begins to receive serious threats, he asks for a Wizard bodyguard to be assigned to him, and who should be more fit for the job than the fallen-from-grace Man Who Lived Twice himself? But can Harry and Draco set aside their differences and work together, or is this just a disaster in the making?
This was a delightful fic! I loved pessimistic Draco slowly thawing and Harry dealing with his issues, and the relationship build up was wonderful!

Word Count: ~34,000
Content/Warnings: breakup!fic, Auror partners (briefly), unusual jobs, bottom!draco, kid!fic, [community profile] hd_erised 2015
Summary: One screw-up changes everything. Harry really should learn to lock the door before having sex with Draco when his godson’s around. A tale of hot, steamy, flowing love—for Padma Patil and Theodore Nott. A tale of colossal screw-ups and slow, flangsty (sexy) resolutions for Harry and Draco.
This is such a fun and clever fic! The concepts and details here are really wonderful, and I love how Harry and Draco manage to find their way back to each other, even with some screw-ups along the way.

Word Count: 34,695
Content/Warnings: bottom!draco, implied switching, first time, seeker!harry, [community profile] hd_erised 2013
Summary: War makes for strange bedfellows. However that doesn't fully explain how Harry ended up sharing his bath with Draco Malfoy... nor why Malfoy was a rubber duck at the time.
OMG this was so great! The concept was super interesting and Draco is so great in this. He's funny and witty and so hilarious in all his object reincarnations. The relationship between Harry and Draco is well-paced and believable. And the Snape cameo at the end was perfect.

Title: With Born Tenacity

Word Count: 34,700
Rating: NC-17

Summary: His bruised and bloody body was fished from the Mediterranean Sea with only a wand and a single key as a clue to his identity. Even his name was a mystery. Did he dare to trust the man who found him lying on the beach?
No surprise this was amazing! Dysonrules does a great job with disguise!fic and this one was especially exciting with memory loss, polyjuice, ministry plots, false murder accusations, and cameos from some slytherin and gryffindor friends! Harry and Draco's chemistry in this fic is fantastic and Draco's interactions with everybody are perfect

Title: Just Friends (or Why Draco Malfoy Shouldn't Have Sex in His Office)

Summary: Harry and Draco are Auror partners, friends, and um... well, that's it. Yes, Hermione, that is it. At least it is until Harry catches him doing a certain something that he can't get out of his mind.
Really wonderful fic with Harry and Draco as Auror partners and good friends, until Harry walks in on Draco fucking Blaise in their office and suddenly he can't get Draco out of his mind. The sex is seriously scorching hot, and I loved the build between Harry and Draco here.

Word Count: ~35,000
Content/Warnings: shared bed, [community profile] hd_erised 2014
Summary: When Harry moves into the damp and empty Black house, it doesn’t quite feel like home. And then the first owl moves in. After that, it’s a steep slope leading to bed-sharing, more owls, assorted housemates, strange potions experiments, and terrible cooking. And a bit of waltzing, too.
Oh this fic was such a wonderful feel-good fic! There were honestly so many little details that just made the fic that I could go on and on about them forever, and the slowly building relationship between Harry and Draco and the shared bed trope were great! And the side pairings and characters were just perfect. Ron and Hermione were wonderfully characterized both separately and their dynamic as a couple and Greg and Luna were too adorable and I loved how they just really balanced out the house.

Content/Warnings: mentions of past torture, bondage, rimming, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, [community profile] hd_erised 2015
Summary: Harry Potter is the most sought after celebrity in wizarding Britain. His every movement is scrutinised, his relationships questioned and his photographs plastered over every paper. Harry's used to everyone thinking he’s a hero and has had plenty of time to learn how to keep his biggest secrets hidden from the press. As Draco Malfoy negotiates his feelings for the wizarding world's brightest star, he becomes increasingly attached to Harry and unravels the secrets he keeps hidden from the rest of the world.
Really beautifully written and super hot post-war fic that has Draco and Harry starting to form a friendship that is tinged with that bit of something more from the very beginning. Some really glorious sexual tension, and the payout is definitely worth it. Fantastic characterizations, and a lovely ending.

Really beautifully written fic that has Harry and Draco coming back together after years apart. Draco and Harry are both beautifully characterized, and the connection between them is as strong as ever. I love how the author really perfectly captures the complexity of their relationship, and how both Harry and Draco move cautiously, if inexorably, back towards one another. Th tensions between the two is fabulous, and when it finally comes to a head, it's unbelievably hot. Moving and beautiful read.
