Summary: His mother paints a wolf on his chest, its eyes bracketing his heart, and its muzzle pointed towards his groin. His aunt fills in the spaces around his waist and ribs with symbols he's lost the meaning of in the wash of whatever plant had been mixed in with the steam. They move after her brush leaves his skin, turning from incomprehensible marks to his name to wolf to home to hunt and then back to misunderstanding again.
His legs are painted in patterned bands, starting from his ankles and ending at his upper thighs. His groin is left unmarked, the pale and empty skin meant to leave no doubt of the Claim once he makes it.
Really cool Medieval/Fairytale-type AU with some gorgeous prose and a super fascinating mythology. I'm always down for werewolf fic, and the atmosphere of the claiming run here was utterly absorbing. Super hot and a really fun and unique read!

Really enjoyable and wonderfully written fic with Healer Draco helping Harry in the wake of a devastating curse that has paralysed him from the waist down. I really appreciated the way the author handled Harry's struggles as he comes to terms with his changed circumstances, and Draco here was wonderful. A lovely, gentle build between them, and a super sweet ending!

Summary: Clearing out a remote house full of cursed collectibles in the Outer Hebrides? Not a problem for an experienced curse breaker like Harry Potter. Spending a week with the straight, happily-married man that he’s starting to have feelings for? And sharing a bed with him at night? Surely Harry can handle that, too. But both the house and Draco Malfoy have secrets to uncover, and Harry might be in deeper water than he thought.
Goodness, this was such a delight!! The characterizations here and relationship between Harry and Draco were all absolutely lovely, and I really loved how the author captured Harry's demisexuality and Draco's relationship with Astoria. Harry and Draco's connection was really wonderful to see (as was Harry's pining!) and I so enjoyed the ending! Definitely the perfect fic to curl up with on a rainy afternoon.

Summary: Minister for Magic Harry Potter does not love his job. The one bright point in his life is his secret relationship with Quidditch Super Star Draco Malfoy. When they're 'outed' by a peeping tom with a camera, Harry has to decide what's really important.This was such a delight!! I don't read a lot of Minister!Harry fic but I really enjoyed how he was portrayed here, as both his reasoning for perusing the career and his frustration with politics felt really authentic. I loved the connection between him and Draco and UNFFFF the smut had me fanning myself! The pining was delightful, and though I felt so much for the privacy violation of having such an intimate moment captured, the way it brings them together and finally leads to them admitting their feelings made for a lovely ending.

Word Count: ∼7,000
Content/Warnings:creature!fic, Vampire!Scorpius, biting, first person POV, bottom!albus,hp_nextgen_fest 2020
Summary:After Albus finds out Scorpius is part vampire he can’t stop thinking about being bitten. He can’t stop thinking about Scorpius in general, but that’s been the case since he was fifteen. At least, when it comes to Scorpius he’s used to not getting what he wants. He’s happy with what he has, or at least, comfortable. That is until he accidentally asks for it, then it all starts to change.Awesome creature fic with a Scorpius who's struggling a bit with his vampiric desires and an Albus who just wants Scorpius to love (and bite!) him. Loved the first person POV here, and the whole thing was super sexy and satisfying!

Summary: Scorpius Malfoy has applied to be Albus' heat partner.
There' no way James is letting that happen.
JFC this is ridiculously hot!! James’s POV was fabulous and the author captured all the smutty, sexy goodness that I love with a good ABO universe.
Title: Remember to Follow
Pairing(s):James Sirius/Albus Severus, Minor Albus Severus/Scorpius, background Harry/Ginny
Word Count: ~17,550
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind fusion, sibling incest, bittersweet ending, implied underage sex, memory magic, hp_nextgen_fest 2020
Summary: The moment they kissed, James and Albus knew that they'd never be able to live without this -- too in love to walk away. Years later, and well into adulthood, the possible repercussions of their relationship feel very real and very scary. Without the strength to break it off, they're left with a single solution: a company that specializes in erasing and altering memories.
Now the only thing left to do, is to say goodbye.
Oh holy shit, this was INCREDIBLE. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my favorites and it works so well fused with the HP Universe given the memory magic aspects, and worked even better given Albus & James's reasons for wanting to forget their romantic feelings towards one another. This hit me RIGHT in the feels--I actually teared up!--and was just really brilliantly done. Highly recommend!

Summary: James Potter had always known exactly what he wanted; to open a pub of his own, maybe travel the world, and live a simple life with the only man he’d ever loved. For years he waited, quietly determined to help Teddy see what could be between them. But just when everything he’d ever dreamed of was finally within his reach, it was ripped away in an instant. With Teddy missing, and presumed dead, James is left to pick up the pieces.
John has no idea what he wants. He doesn’t even know who he is. But when he hears a strikingly familiar voice – on an otherwise ordinary day – he sets out to discover everything he can about the man that occupies his dreams.
And Harry, well, Harry just wants to put his failures behind him. Until a series of unexpected events forces him to reexamine a case that he’d given up on solving. With the help of an unexpected ally, he just might find the answers he’s been looking for.
This was such an engaging read! Loved the mystery aspect here, but what really drew me in where the characterizations and the relationships here. Really wonderful dynamics and just a fun read!
