H/D Fan Fair 2019 Fic Recs!

Happy Thanksgiving for those who celebrate! If you're looking for some Harry/Draco fic to tide you over on this long weekend before [community profile] hd_erised starts posting, might I suggest checking out the recent [community profile] hd_fan_fair 2019 fest masterlist? I participated in the fest this year and though I didn’t read everything, I’d say I made it through a majority of the submissions, and there were a lot of great entries! Of course, I definitely had my personal favorites, and I really enjoyed seeing the different takes on careers combined with the secondary themes! Obviously, I highly recommend all of the below fics, but there were also a ton of other wonderful fics in the fest that I enjoyed, and I definitely recommend checking out the entire masterlist, as there really was something for everyone. :D

Summary: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy are two of the best flyers in the International Professional Broom Racing League. To fans, they’re a pair of competitive rivals that trade skillful wins back and forth, but after they finish each grueling race around the world is that all there is between them?

Super fun fic with Harry and Draco as friendly competitive International Broom Racers!! I loved the profession and the details here, and the dynamic between Harry and Draco was just lovely!

Summary: After the war, Harry finds solace in fostering orphaned kittens. One day, a kitten appears on his door step without explanation—and attacks him! Taking it in, he quickly finds that this kitten is nothing ordinary.
This story was so lovely! The writing was gorgeous, and all the kittens were too freaking cute! I really enjoyed the characterizations and build, and the ending was wonderful.

Really enjoyable and well-written fic showing the progression of Harry and Draco's relationship over the years from enemies to friends to lovers. Lovely characterizations and interactions, plus adorable animals!

Title: Match Fit
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] ravenclawsquill
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Ginny/Dean, past Harry/Ginny, Draco/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~25,200
Warnings/Content: massage!fic, Quidditch Player!Harry, (kind of) Healer!Draco, shower!sex, rimming, bottom!draco, [community profile] hd_fan_fair 2019
Summary: After picking up a groin injury just two weeks before the Quidditch World Cup Final, star Seeker Harry Potter reluctantly agrees to seek help from world-renowned Magi-Physiotherapist, Draco Malfoy. Cue unbearable tension, naked sports massages, inappropriate erections and a healthy dose of acid-green lycra.
Super fun Quidditch Fic with Harry as an injured player and Draco as his super sexy physical therapist!! I loved Harry and Draco (and all the background characters!) so much here, and the tension between them was FANTASTIC! Plus, super hot smut and a wonderful ending!

Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] XxTheDarkLordxX
Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 30,192
Warnings/Content: Curse-Breaker!Harry, bottom!harry, implied switching, [community profile] hd_fan_fair 2019
Summary: Not many know the evil origins of a Philosopher's Stone. When Draco discovers that the Goblins found one and kept it, he'll stop at nothing to see it taken care of. Even if that means having to deal with Gringotts' very own resident twat: Harry Potter.
Really fascinating fic with some amazing magical theory and a really cool take on Dark magic. I loved Draco and Harry in this, the way that Draco hasn't lost any of his sharp edges, and the undeniable draw they have towards one another. Engaging plot, super hot sex, and a really lovely developing friendship between Draco and George--loved it!

Title: All Bets Are Off
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] dualwieldteacup
Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 31,705
Warnings/Content: Bodyguard!Harry, first time, intercrural sex, unusual jobs, [community profile] hd_fan_fair 2019
Summary: Harry Potter's latest security assignment brings him to Las Vegas for the International Wizarding Casino World Series. At a magic underwater hotel, he is tasked with guarding the legendary and mysterious gambler known as Snake Eyes.
The stakes are high when both Galleons and emotions are involved. Not to mention peacock pool floats, secret pizza, and most importantly of all, second chances.
Really interesting fic with Profession Gambler Draco and Harry unexpectedly acting as his bodyguard in Vegas! The setting was wonderfully lush, with lots of fun magical details that made me smile, and the tension between Harry and Draco was fabulous. I appreciated that things weren't easy between them, and that they both had their doubts, but the ending was lovely.

Title: The Pirate and the Prince
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] nerdherderette
Artist: [archiveofourown.org profile] maniacani
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Cedric & Harry/Roger Davies, background Ron/Hermione, Neville/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 49,240
Warnings/Content: AU: Historical, AU: Non-Magical, AU: Pirates, pirate!Harry, identity porn, first time, barebacking, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, switching, [community profile] hd_fan_fair 2019
Summary: Draco can’t believe that fate and circumstance have made him a stowaway on the Master of Death’s ship. He doesn’t know what’s worse—the dread pirate’s legendary vendetta against the aristocracy, or the fact that his captor is the most infuriating yet irrefutably fascinating man Draco has ever met.
Oh my goodness, this fic was just BRILLIANT! I'm honestly not always the biggest fan of historical/non-magical AUs for HP, but this one was so fantastic and sucked me in from the get-go. Fantastic writing, gorgeous characterizations, and chemistry that sizzles! I absolutely adore the way the author incorporated canon characters/details/events throughout--they were like little Easter eggs that made me smile every time they popped up! Definitely gave me all the harlequin romance feels, in the best kind of way, and the whole thing honestly FLEW by, I couldn't believe it was almost 50k! Definitely recommend! OH, and I can't forget the art, which is absolutely gorgeous and fits the fic so perfectly, I was blown away!

Title: I Am Not Who I Became
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] mab_di
Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, brief Draco/OMC, background Ron/Hermione, Pansy/OMC, Greg/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 93,190
Warnings/Content: unusual jobs, mild suicide ideation, depression, outdoor!sex, table!sex,semi-public!sex, rough sex, switching, bottom!harry, bottom!draco, face-fucking, [community profile] hd_fan_fair 2019
Summary: Draco left England after the trials and has travelled the world meeting wizards and Muggles from different cultures and with vastly different relationships to magic, each other, and the natural world. Now he's a fisherman in Finland on commercial vessels. Harry has been struggling since the war and has become a recluse while trying to write his autobiography. An invitation to the Hogwarts class of 1998's 15th reunion isn't welcomed by either of them, but neither could predict how the night, and their reunion, will upend their lives.
I'll admit I was a bit skeptical going into this one given the unusual-ness of Draco's career, but the author sold me on it and then some!! Draco and Harry are both so wonderfully, richy characterized here, and I loved them both so much, both individually and as a pairing that fit so beautifully together. The settings and characters are gorgeously captured, and the build between Harry and Draco is the stuff feels are made of. And the sex!! The sex just about killed me dead! Really captivating read that just FLEW by.
