August/September HP Recs!

In a delightful turn of events, I've actually been reading quite a lot of HP fanfic over the past few months, particularly in September! Not only have I been trying to follow along with several fests, but I joined the [tumblr.com profile] gameofdrarry Wizarding Hearts game, which is essentially a challenge that runs through the end of the year and encourages you to read, comment, and rec Drarry fics for various tropes to gain points. Your girl LOVES a challenge (and a spreadsheet *heart eyes*) and I've been having a ton of fun working through my TBR list and finally having the motivation to read some excellent fic! As such, these are mostly Drarry recs, but there are a couple of other pairings thrown in for good measure. :D

Title: Misguided at Best
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] agentmoppet
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3,011
Content/Warnings: BDSM, D/s, Dom!Draco, sub!Harry, impact play, kind of identity!porn, light bondage, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco has grown bored of the aristocratic fetish clubs, and decides to try something new.
But he never would have expected to find Harry Potter, disguised and on his knees, waiting for him.
Super hot BDSM PWP with Dom Draco going to a club and assigned a sub. The man may be polyjuiced, but Draco would know Harry Potter anywhere! The kink is super hot, and the tension between them is fabulous. And the ending is great!

Title: Orange is the new wrecked locked on AO3
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] spookywoods
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3,019
Content/Warnings: light D/s,  Auror!Harry, bottom!harry
Summary: Accused of a crime he didn't commit, Harry believes Draco Malfoy is behind it. No matter what anyone else says, he can't let it go.
He can't let him go.
Super hot fic with Harry desperate for Draco and fighting it. Loved the dynamic here.

Title: Defined Parameters
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Amelior8or
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 4,081
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: fusion, AU: Sci-Fi, star trek: voyager fusion, light D/s dynamics, hate!sex, kind of boss/employee
Summary: Harry is a security officer on a ship stuck in the far end of the Delta Quadrant. Malfoy is the Maquis First Officer they tentatively have an alliance with. If they're going to spend the next 70,000 lightyears together, they need to define the parameters of their power. They just so happen to define it on the Holodeck, during a bout of Turkish oil wrestling.
Super cool Star Trek: Voyager fusion! (More fun if you're familiar with that canon, but definitely not at all a requirement to understand this fic!) The characterizations and dynamics here were spot-on and I really enjoyed how the author managed to fuse the two universes together. Super hot (um, I humbly request more oil wrestling in fic!!) and one of those universes I could absolutely read more in (though it was very satisfying as is)!

Title: Imprinted
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] marguerite_26
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 4,115
Content/Warnings: eighth year, creature!fic, Veela Draco, non-linear timeline, knotting, rough sex, outdoor sex, mates, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry finds Draco naked and scratched up on the outskirts of the Forbidden Forest and he becomes obsessed with finding out what’s really going on.
Super hot fic with Harry realising something's wrong with Draco and then going to great lengths to help him. No worries though, he's not being self-sacrificing--he definitely enjoys it! Gorgeous tension throughout and a really quick, sexy read!

Title: Blow-By-Blow
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] p1013
Pairings: Draco/Harry
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 6,396
Content/Warnings: fist fights, Auror!Harry, Unspeakable!Draco, [tumblr.com profile] hpinspiredby 2020
Summary: Harry rolls his shoulders again, then reaches for the back of his shirt and pulls it over his head. The Aurors around him take a step back, and his side of the room falls quiet as he steps forward.
"Malfoy," he shouts, drawing the blond's attention from his friends to Harry. "You're here for a fight, yeah?"
Malfoy gives Harry another contemptuous once-over. "I've yet to find one."
"My apologies. Didn't mean to keep you waiting."
Suuuuper hot fic with Auror trainee Harry and Unspeakable-in-training Draco joining an underground fight club and being far too evenly matched for their liking. Always a fan of fighting turning into fucking, especially with these two!

Title: all the feelings that you're making me feel
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] M0stlyVoid
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/OMCs
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 7,113
Warnings/Content: mild dub-con, Auror!Harry, voyeurism, implied switching, [tumblr.com profile] tasteofsmut 2020
Summary: Harry should have known that ‘clean bill of health’ he got after a spell rebounded off him in a raid was too good to be true, especially with Draco Malfoy involved. He never expected this, though, but he finds to his utter shame that he could bloody well get used to it.
Super hot fic with Harry and Draco getting hit with a spell that lets Harry physically feel everything Draco does, and Draco's out there sowing his wild oats! (Mild dub con is because Harry continues "feeling" in on Draco without Draco's knowledge/trying to end the spell, though Draco doesn't end up minding one bit!)

Title: Kiss me (you, coward)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Etalice
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Pansy/Ginny
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 7,808
Warnings/Content: identity!porn, epistolary!fic, soulmates, first person POV, [tumblr.com profile] gameofdrarry Valentine's Day 2020
Summary: When an anonymous well-wisher casts a soulmate spell on Harry, strange writing starts appearing on his skin.
This fic was such a lovely read! Harry's been hit with a soulmate spell that means everything he writes shows up on his mysterious soulmate's skin and vice versa. His voice here was great and I enjoyed seeing him slowly get to know his soulmate without any preconceived notions.

Title: Lamp in the Cooling Room (Not on AO3)
Author: Sansa
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Mature
Word Count: ~9,000
Warnings/Content: Auror!Harry, accidental voyeurism, outsider!pov, open/ambiguous ending, shared bed, hd_worldcup 2008
Summary: Draco and Harry become snared in a trap, but they're not alone. Love guides our path for reasons we can't always understand.
Gorgeously written fic with Harry, Draco, and a Muggle girl trapped in a house where the first one to leave is the only one who will survive. Told entirely from the Muggle girl's POV, the glimpses we get of Harry and Draco here, and the depth of emotion, is truly wonderful. I can definitely see why this one is a classic!

Title: A Different Kind of Meaning
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] p1013
Pairings: Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 17,048
Content/Warnings: past relationship, break-ups, Auror!Harry, Lawyer!Draco, unusual jobs, implied bottom!harry, [tumblr.com profile] hd-wireless 2020
Summary: The ceiling doesn't hold any answers, but there are cobwebs scattered across the corners with shadows tangled in their threads. The rug against his back is rough and scratchy, threadbare and devoid of colours other than various shades of brown. Harry takes it all in, absorbs the dingy and depressed state of his home. There's a pointed moment of decision, a note about to be played, a silence about to end, and then he rolls to his feet and sets to cleaning.
It's the first constructive thing he's done in years.
Really lovely fic with some wonderfully lyrical prose. I really enjoyed the tone of this one, and the pacing was great!

Title: you've got the antidote for me
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Kandakicksass
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron
Rating: Teen (Mature on AO3 but I think Teen is more accurate)
Word Count: 20,730
Content/Warnings: Auror!Harry, soulmates, terminal illness
Summary: When Harry Potter unintentionally severs their soulbond before it can fully form, Draco Malfoy resigns himself to a slow death and decides not to burden Harry with a soulmate he's made it very clear he doesn't want.
He's never been selfless before, but for Harry, he can try.
Really excellent fic that gave me ALL the chest-achey feels! I loves the characterizations here, and I'm a sucker for a good Draco & Ron friendship! Gorgeous development and just an all-around captivating read!

Title: Black Coffee on a Lonely Night
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] femmequixotic
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Astoria, past Draco/Others
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 21,658
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, AU: Sport, AU: Coffee Shop, politician!harry, bisexual Draco, character death (Astoria), past open relationship, brief het sex, kid!fic, implied bottom!draco, ownficfest 2009  
Summary: Draco owns a café in the city. Harry's a MP who comes in every morning, newspapers in one hand, BlackBerry in the other, and orders a triple espresso macchiato
Another one of those amazing fics I read and loved when I was still lurking; I finally got around to a reread and it was just as glorious as I remembered! Both non-magical and first person POV which are things that I tend not to read very often, but it's Femme, so they were brilliantly done. Draco's voice here is absolutely perfect, and I adored every single character. Plus, the whole thing felt incredibly British, which I always love.

Title: On the Couch
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Frayach
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Astoria, Harry/Ginny, OMC/OFC
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 26,035
Content/Warnings: Auror!Harry, infidelity, voyeurism, outsider!pov, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, semi-public!sex, secret relationship, felching, rimming, hd_holidays 2010
Summary: It’s a Mind Healer’s worse nightmare to lose a patient to suicide, but Mind Healer Nick Nichols can attest to the fact that a murder/suicide is even worse. If only Dr. Freud had come up with a sure cure for love.
Oooo, goodness, this was fantastic! The outsider POV here was expertly done and made for such a fascinating read, especially give the tumultuously passionate relationship between Harry and Draco. I felt so much for both of them here struggling with a relationship that's fraying because of Draco's actions and the obligations he doesn't feel equal to escaping. The ending is truly unforgettable and it's definitely a unique and gripping read!

Title: Breaking Boundaries
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Queenie_Mab
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Astoria & Harry/Ginny, background Dean/Ginny and Hermione/Ron
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 26,098
Content/Warnings: unusual jobs, identity!porn, mild dub-con, bottom!harry, first time, rimming, hd_fan_fair 2012
Summary: Harry is nearly 40 years old and intimacy is something he’s never really known. He teams up with Freudian Analyst!Draco to work out what’s been holding him back. He discovers himself and finds a new lease on life in the process.
Harry's struggling with relationships and intimacy and finally decides to see a Healer who, of course, turns out to be Draco Malfoy! But Draco's a professional, and Harry's keen to work through his issues, and the way Harry slowly realizes and comes to terms with his sexuality was wonderful to read. The desire between them is clear, but they've definitely got some obstacles to overcome here, but the way it all played out was quite satisfying.

Title: No Greater Victory
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] dicta_contrion
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Blaise/Pansy in various combinations and with various background characters, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 26,951
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, Cruel Intentions fusion, eighth year, blackmail, promiscuity, bets & wagers, first person POV, recreational drug use, first time, switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, hd_smoochfest 2014
Summary: Back at Hogwarts after the war, a defeated Draco Malfoy is prepared to settle for life's simpler pleasures: snark, sex, and Slytherin scheming. That is until Pansy, newly in possession of Malfoy Manor, offers to return his ancestral home. Just one condition: he has to win, and break, Harry Potter's heart to get it. That's no problem. Draco's got this situation completely under control. Completely. At least until he doesn't.
This was everything I could have wanted and more from a Cruel Intentions fusion! You definitely don't need to be familiar with the book/movie to understand this one at all, but it's definitely a lot more fun to see the way Dicta incorporated the general plot and themes, which works amazingly well! The Slytherins here are quite distinct (and delightful amoral) and the entire fic is told through Draco's diary entries so we really get to see inside his head and follow him on his journey as he attempts to seduce Harry and (of course) falls for him in the process. Fantastic writing and a super engaging story with a really wonderful (happy!!) ending. :D

Title: The Swaggering Plimpies (or This One Time, At Quidditch Camp...)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] RurouniHime
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Astoria, Harry/Ginny, background Seamus/Blaise & Ron/Hermione
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 29,576
Content/Warnings: kid!fic, epilogue compliant, dating during divorce, hd_holidays 2011
Summary: Draco has an idea, and Harry’s just the one to help him.
Aww, this was just the loveliest read!! I so adored seeing this older, more mature version of Harry and Draco, who've become friendly enough to create this Quidditch camp together and it was a lot of fun to see so many of the Next Gen kids here. The ending of relationships, especially marriage and especially with kids involved, is such a complicated thing, and I really appreciated how the author depicted it here, and how obvious it was that there was still a lot of love and respect there, and that the adults were doing the best they could. The connection between Harry and Draco was so wonderful and the way everything evolved and played out felt quite believable, even if the road wasn't always easy. Lovely ending, and just a really enjoyable read!

Title: The Bucket List
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] GallaPlacidia
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, brief Draco/Blaise
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 32,393
Content/Warnings: cursed!draco, terminal illness, identity!porn
Summary: Draco will die in six months if he can't get Harry Potter to fall in love with him. Since that's not going to happen, he might as well spend his last days working through his Bucket List. Tap-dancing lessons? Rock climbing? Poetry-writing? Threesomes? Cocaine? Getting to know his adorable cousin, Teddy Lupin? Draco will try them all!

Feat. Cheerily pessimistic Draco, devoted bitch queen Pansy Parkinson, and a Harry who can't help but notice that something seems DIFFERENT about Draco, these days.
Oo, this fic was excellent!! The characterizations here were brilliant, and I particularly loved the whole Slytherin crew and the relationships between them all. So many gorgeous feels here, and a lovely ending!

Title: Momenti Diversi Series (5 Fics) (Locked on AO3)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] zarah5
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 33,580
Content/Warnings: AU after OotP, Auror!Draco, outdoor!sex, bottom!draco, implied switching
Summary: In which you'll find the Italian sun, some sexual tension, a reluctant Harry and a persuasive Draco. (Post-Hogwarts, aftermath of war.)
Goodness, what a fabulous read!! AU sometime after OotP I believe, with a Draco who changed sides during the war and went on to become an Auror. He goes off to Italy, intent on bringing Harry Potter with him--both as an Auror and a lover. The descriptions of Italy were so lush and vivid and the characterizations were fantastic. I adored their chemistry and the way their relationship unfolds over the five days, and the ending was absolutely lovely.

Title: All Roads
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] korlaena
Artist: [archiveofourown.org profile] saulaie
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Luna/Ginny & Ron/Hermione
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 36,636
Content/Warnings: journalist!draco, unusual jobs, internalized homophobia, animagus!draco, (sort of) past relationship, hd_collab 2019
Summary: Draco hates his job at the Prophet. He hates it even more when he’s assigned to write an article on Harry Potter, who left the country three years ago after their falling out. Draco doesn’t want to face the truth about himself, but he’s stuck between Harry and his duty, and he’s out of options.
Wonderful fic with journalist Draco charged with finding Harry Potter who has a bit of a history with and hasn't seen in several years. I so felt for Draco here and his struggles to accept his sexuality given what his father expects of him, and the pull he feels towards Harry just jumps off the screen. Plus some of the most gorgeous illustrations ever really bring this one to life!

Title: Liar
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] jad
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Astoria, Harry/Ginny, background Ron/Hermione, Marcus/Cho, Tracey/OFC
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 50,341
Content/Warnings: epilogue compliant, infidelity, Auror Harry, intercrural sex, rough sex, bottom!draco, suicide (not Harry/Draco), hd_holidays 2012
Summary: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy always preferred the worst of each other; unfortunately, they had better halves.
Oh my goodness, is this fic intense! I'm quite particular about infidelity by the way this author really builds the feelings between Harry and Draco, you can really see how they both get to this point where their feelings are impossible to ignore despite their wives, and kids, and the stakes. Really gorgeous relationship between Harry and Draco, and the rest of the characters and relationships here are also brilliantly done. Definitely some angst here, and do mind the tags, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

Title: Can't Afford to Fall

Summary: Draco's been the potions master at Hogwarts for four years. At the beginning of his fifth year, everything looks like it'll be smooth sailing. That is, until the new Defense against the Dark Arts teacher arrives and throws all of Draco's well-considered plans out the window.
Really lovely fic with Harry coming to work at Hogwarts as the DADA professor after an injury working as an Auror. The characterizations and the various relationships here, not just Harry and Draco, but the full cast, were all so amazing and really gave me all the feels. Wonderful slow burn that never drags and made 100k fly by!

Their relationship fills him up with warmth - they deserve to be happy, and it's obvious that he wants what they have. But maybe, just maybe, Harry wants more than a relationship like the one Remus and Sirius have. Maybe he wants that relationship. Maybe he wants them.This fic was so fantastic!! The characterizations were wonderful, as were all of the various relationships throughout. Such a lovely read! This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
