Title: A Song Without Words
Author: [personal profile] omi_ohmy
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Pansy/Blaise, implied Hermione/Ron
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 20,586
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, unusual jobs, [community profile] hd_erised 2013
Summary: When a violin goes missing, Draco has to work with Potter to clear both their names.
This was so great! The careers are so unique (especially Harry's, he is a luthier, a person who repairs/restores violins!) but it so works in this fic and it's actually believable, which I was worried about going into the fic! Love Draco's reactions to Harry and his playing, and their relationship development was so lovely.

Title: Hidden in the Depths
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] venis_envy
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, side Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Dean
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~21,000
Content/Warnings: auror!draco, auror!harry, auror partners, bottom!draco, hd_holidays 2011
Summary: Sometimes we know exactly what we're looking for, even if it isn't quite clear how to reach it.
The writing in this fic was really lovely. I love the friendship and the way she wrote Harry's feelings.

Title: Trouble, My Old Friend
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Tepre
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,042
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, first time, bottom!harry, sexual fantasy, dirty talk, D/s dynamics, [livejounal.com profile] hp-kinkfest 2019
Summary: Harry goes rogue investigating an illegal potion and ends up at Draco Malfoy's dodgy lab.
Really captivating read with an inexperienced Harry falling down the rabbit hole of desire and fantasy thanks to one of Malfoy's custom potions, and quickly becoming fascinated with the man himself. The tension was gorgeous here and the whole thing was super hot.

Title: Secret Love Song
Author: [personal profile] writcraft
Pairing: Draco/Harry, mentions of Draco/OMCs and past Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,796
Content/Warnings: first time, some internalized homophobia, mentions of past self-harm, bottom!harry, dracotops_harry 2017
Summary: If there's one thing Draco's certain about, it's that Harry Potter's hiding something. When he gets to the bottom of Harry's closely guarded secret, a flippant solution brings them closer together and forces Harry to confront his past.
Oh gosh, this fic was so lovely! Draco here was wonderful and I loved how both he and Harry were a bit lost and broken and trying to figure out who they were and how they fit together. Really sexy and touching read.

Title: Here Be Dragons
Author: [personal profile] birdsofshore
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Draco/OMCs, brief mention of past Harry/OMC
Animal: Dragon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,870
Warnings/Content: D/s themes, Auror!Harry, bottom!harry, rough sex, dirty talk, some face-fucking, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's pet fair 2016
Summary: Harry doesn’t want to waste his time investigating illegal dragonhide trading, whether it involves a fetish club in Knockturn Alley or visiting a remote island in Wales. Why the bloody hell does Malfoy always have to be up to something?
OMG, this fic is fucking awesome! Harry's voice is great here, and he's fantastic as the Auror who needs to investigate the influx of dragonhide in Great Britain, which, of course, leads him to Draco looking sinful in dragonhide trousers! The story was lovely, the chemistry between Harry and Draco was sizzling, and JFC the sex was seriously freaking hot. Love!

Title: With A Certain Charm
Author: moonlitdark
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,500
Content/Warnings: bottom!draco, unusual job, hd_holidays 2009
Summary: Draco is content with his life. He has a beautiful hotel to run and a new family to care for, but the arrival of an unexpected guest disturbs his orderly existence.
I love this. Draco has such an unusual job and Harry is so lost, and they are just so believable together.

Title: Glamour
Author: silentauror
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, past Harry/Ginny, past Harry/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,730
Content/Warnings: gender-bending, bottom!draco, auror!harry, auror!draco
Summary: Post-war: Harry is given an assignment: to assist Draco Malfoy as he carries out a month-long disguise that turns out to reveal more than it hides in the end.
I must say that genderbending isn't normally my thing, (I want my boys to like each other as boys!) but it just works in this story. The reason for the disguise makes sense, and in the end, Harry realizes he's not quite as straight as he thought.

Title: Touch Me Fall
Author: [personal profile] lq_traintracks
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Hermione/Ron, Angelina/George, (mention of Bill/Fleur; completely offscreen Draco/OMCs and past Harry/OMCs; past Harry/Ginny)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~23,000
Warnings/Content: prostitution, exhibitionism, public!sex, barebacking, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, rentboy!draco, hd_tropes 2014
Summary: Malfoy was such a ponce. And he was a complete snob. And he was so fucking fit Harry wanted to jump him where he sat. It would be too easy to forget his objective tonight: to really, really, really get Malfoy out of his system.
Rentboy fics are really not my thing, so that fact that I loved this fic as much as I did was a wonderful surprise. Their relationship was lovely and believable and the details in the story (like Harry and Kreacher's text convos!) were fantastic. Plus, some seriously, ridiculously hot sex. Switching, but mostly bottom!Harry which is my absolute fav ratio. :D

Title: House Proud
Author: [personal profile] astolat
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: R (But I think PG-13 might be more accurate)
Word count: ~23,110
Content/Warnings: forced proximity, shared bed
Summary: His house liked Draco Malfoy more than him.
Really wonderfully fascinating fic with Grimmauld Place taking a shine to Draco and eventually trapping him and Harry inside. I loved the personality of the house, and the details here were intricate and really quite amazing. I also thought the spin on the pure-blood traditions made for quite the interesting read. Oh, and, of course, some gorgeous characterizations. Loved Harry's fire here. :)

Title: The Grotto
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] erin_myecourt
Pairing: Harry/Draco, implied Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Words: 23,342
Content/Warnings: implied switching, [community profile] hd_erised 2013
Summary: Three years after Draco’s war crimes trial, the Wizengamot finally decides on his community sentence: help rebuild a village that was destroyed in the war. It sounds simple enough. Until Draco begins to unravel the mystery behind the assignment.
This fic is amazing! I LOVED Draco in this, grown up and trying to be better, but still essentially himself. And the writing in this was just gorgeous, I really felt the sinister, ominous atmosphere of the grotto.

Title: Harry Potter and The Bisexual Awakening
Author: [personal profile] writcraft
Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, past Harry/Ginny, vague mention of past Harry/OFCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~23,400
Content/Enticements: Biphobia, party games, first times, [livejounal.com profile] hd-erised 2018
Summary: Harry is perfectly content being single, heterosexual and living in Godric's Hollow with his very clingy rescue dog, Snitch. When Draco Malfoy turns up on Harry's doorstep demanding that Harry teach him how to drive, things quickly become a lot more complicated.
This fic was a delight! Harry's voice here was brilliant, and the banter between him and Draco was A+. I loved Harry's realization about his sexuality, and the connection between him and Draco here was really fantastic.

Title: Hate
Author: serene_cj
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,612
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, auror!harry, bodyguard!draco, [insanejournal.com profile] hp_summersmut fest 2008
Summary: Draco Malfoy loves his job. Especially when it means being able to torture Potter 'round the clock.
I love this Draco. He is a bit ridiculous and super funny.

Title: Pseudo
Author: [personal profile] dysonrules
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione, sort of Draco/OMC
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 23,726
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, bottom!draco, identity porn
Summary: Draco runs into an interesting man during a drunken night out. Pansy slips the man Draco's address, not realizing that he is actually Harry Potter in disguise.
Things get a bit out of hand after that.
This was written by dysonrules, so you know it's going to be awesome! Disguise!fics can be a bit tricky, because of the inevitable fallout after the mask comes off, but this fic is refreshingly lighthearted. Its funny and sweet and sexy and the side characters are perfect.

Title: Baby It's You
Author: [personal profile] firethesound
Pairing: Draco/Harry, Harry/OMC, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,792
Content/Warnings: infidelity, dub-con, drunk!sex, MPREG, dirty talk, bathroom!sex, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, harrydracompreg 2014
Summary: Harry sometimes wished that his life wasn’t quite so prone to turmoil. Some days it felt like he couldn’t even take a piss without throwing his entire future off-course. Or, you know, have a drunken shag in a public toilet. It’s more the principle of the thing, really.
MPREG isn't a huge trope/kink for me, but I really enjoyed this author's take. I was a little worried about the angst factor with this one, but the author did a great job making the interactions, relationships, and reactions feel believable without getting too bogged down in the angst potential. The sex is super hot, and I loved how open and straight-forward Draco is in this one.

Title: Easy In This Blue
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] alpha_exodus
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: R
Word Count: 23,795
Content/Warnings: professor!harry, professor!draco, implied bottom!harry, mental health issues
Summary: Nothing is easy after the war. It's only when he's with Draco, alone by the pool, that Harry feels like he can breathe again. And so he plays along and pretends it's real - until it's not.
Ooo, this fic is SO good! Post-war Harry and Draco are really excellently captured here, and I loved the evolution of their relationship. I had some suspicions in regards to the ~twist~ and the whole thing was fascinating and so engaging.

Title: Where the Stones meet the Sea Series (2 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] dracospungen
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,830
Content/Warnings: mental health issues, suicidal thoughts, internalized homophobia, first time, bottom!draco
Summary: Harry is not content with the life he's living, he doesn't want to be the Saviour of the Wizarding World, he doesn't want to go to galas and fake smiles, holding speeches and most of all he doesn't want to be the Boy Who Lived.
In the mist of it all he receives a package carefully wrapped in brown paper, opening it to reveal its content he realises: it's a painting, a portrait of Draco Malfoy.
These fics are just lovely! I definitely think they need to be read together, as they provide two halves of a whole, though I also thought the first on its own worked well as-is. The writing here has a lovely lyrical, dreamy quality, and I loved the way the author portrayed both Harry and Draco struggling with depression in their own ways after the war. There's definitely angst here, but it's not without hope, and the ending was really just great!

Title: Let Me See You Stripped (Down to the Bone)
Author: [personal profile] lq_traintracks
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, Luna/Milicent
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,000
Content/Warnings: stripper!draco, stripper!harry, public!sex, exhibitionism, rimming, bottom!harry, dracotops_harry 2014
Summary: "So," Malfoy said. "Are you in? Or are you out?" He turned and looked at Harry squarely.
Harry remembered the slow way Malfoy had slid his hand down his own stomach, into his pants – the outline of his long fingers gripping and stroking his own cock. The way his head had fallen back, exposing his pale throat. How he had owned them all.
He took a deep breath. "I'm in," he said.
JFC I can't even with this fic. Such a crazy awesome scenario that manages to fit within the canon!verse. This fic was so great, and I LOVED all the characters and their characterizations here (Luna was so wonderful and confused/reluctantly supportive Ron was perfect). And the sexual tension? GOD, so hot and adding the actual sex in only seemed to ramp it up. Unbelievably sexy and so much fun!

Title: Trust In A Broken Thing
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] SqueekaCuomo
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Pansy/Ron
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 24,011
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, established relationship, memory loss, [community profile] hd_erised 2014
Summary: If the ring was broken, that could only mean one thing… Harry Potter was dead.
This fic was really just so beautiful. Wonderfully written and a bit heart-wrenching in the best ways. I love the idea of auror handlers and I thought it was a lot of fun how the auror!partner trope was twisted slightly to create a dynamic that really plays to their strengths. The depth of Draco's emotions, his love for Harry and sense of loss at losing him, came across so well and I just absolutely adored Draco here.

Title: Like a Star Across My Sky
Author: [personal profile] lq_traintracks & [personal profile] sdk
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco; background: Hermione/Millicent, Ron/Pansy, Blaise/Luna; reference to past Harry/Ginny and Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~24,500
Content/Warnings: bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_erised 2015
Summary: When Draco discovers Harry Potter is his new landlord, he's convinced he's going to lose his shop. When Harry discovers Draco Malfoy's been invited on his friends' annual ski trip, he's certain his holiday is ruined. This is the story about how neither one of them is right.
Such a fun and charming fic! Loved the ski holiday and watching Draco and Harry's relationship grow and evolve. Super hot, and an adorable ending.

Title: The Critiquer
Author: [personal profile] dysonrules
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,500
Warnings/Content: Graphic NWS gifs, unusual jobs, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair's career fair 2014
Summary: When Harry submits his cock photo to a renowned Cock Critiquer and gets a terrible review, he decides to take a photography class to hopefully improve his skills.
This fic!! OMG this was just a ton of fun and I could not stop smiling throughout. I love how believable Draco's job as a cock critiquer is and I really loved him as a photography teacher as well. Harry's determination and dedication to learning photography (so that he could take a better picture of his cock) was just fabulous, and I adored how light and playful the sex was.

Title: The Partner, The Rival and The Very Big Case
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] oceaxe
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Astoria/Millicent, minor Draco/Astoria
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,646
Warnings/Content: Auror!Fic, auror!Draco, Auror!Harry, fake/pretend relationship, bottom!harry, internalized homophobia, sex toys, light D/s, [community profile] dracotops_harry 2018
Summary: When Harry and Nott are paired up to go undercover as fake boyfriends, Draco is disappointed not to get the assignment. It's just professional jealousy that's making him feel so upset. Obviously. He's engaged to be married to Astoria, after all.
But when he walks in on Nott kissing Harry for 'practice' and has a wild magic outbreak, he starts to think that something else might be going on. Is Nott right? Is Draco a homophobe? Or is there... just possibly... another explanation?
Seriously hot fic with Harry and Draco as Auror partners and Draco trying to work through his jealousy when he sees Harry and a fellow Auror, Theo, pretend to a couple for a case. Loved Draco's voice here, Astoria was brilliant, and the whole thing unfolded beautifully. Plus, UNFFF super hot!

Title: At the Crossroads There We’ll Meet
Author: [personal profile] firethesound
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~25,000
Warnings/Content: ​temporary character death, time travel, auror!harry, healer!draco, light D/s, bottom!harry, rimming, hd_tropes 2014
Summary: Potter keeps dying; Draco keeps saving him.
I just adore everything about this fic! The characterizations for everybody were just so spot on, Harry and Draco especially, but Ron and Luna here are also wonderful. The way the time turner was incorporated is brilliantly done. It felt so organic and natural and worked so well with the flow of the story. Harry and Draco's relationship is also just amazing here with all the fantastic banter and snark and growing feelings and really freaking hot sex.
