I so enjoyed helping mod the [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix fest again this year. The [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix fest is one of my favorites in the fandom - I love the idea of authors writing fanfic of other fanfic. Here are some recs from the fest:




favicon violet light by [livejournal.com profile] creole_toile ( R | Art ) 1-May-2017
Summary: your star, through the scars
A remix of Every Second by [livejournal.com profile] bookshop

  • This art is BEYOND stunning and hauntingly beautiful. I love the way the colors transition from one side to the other, and how the first panel has more color and "life" than the last two. Honestly, these images could be framed and put on the wall without a single change.
    (thumbnail posted to tumblr)


favicon How To Catch A Weasley (And Maybe A Potter, Too) by [livejournal.com profile] bixgirl1 ( R | 7,600 ) 17-May-2017
Summary: In which Pansy has a crush and needs Draco's help, Draco has a crush but staunchly refuses to admit it, Potter might have a crush, but is as infuriating as always, and no one knows what the hell Wealsey is thinking--likely not even himself.
A remix of Meaningless by GingerTodgers

  • This was such a great remix! I definitely loved seeing the Harry/Draco side of this story, and the author perfectly wove in all the happenings in the original and showed us how they got there, and how the misunderstandings could multiply. So entertaining!
    Everything is super cute and fun, (even the summary which really sums it all up perfectly!) and we see all of the characters haplessly dancing around what they each really want. But the best part is the kiss, oh! their kiss is SO HOT. Even though the sex is offscreen, the UST absolutely sizzles.
    And the banter is top notch too :)

    (also recced at hd-storyroom)


favicon A Hot Cross Bundle of Draco Malfoy by GingerTodgers ( T | 3,100 ) 16-May-2017
Summary: Harry and Draco stopped doing whatever it was they were doing months ago. It's over and it hurts but it's fine because Luna has invited Harry over for tea and hot cross buns.
Pity she forgot to tell him who her new housemate is...

A remix of The Fabulous Baker Boys by [livejournal.com profile] germankitty

  • Absolutely charming and fun! I love veritaserum fics so much, and this one had all of the embarrassment and awkward confessions that I love about it, plus terrific funny dialogue too.
    I loved so many lines, but maybe this one especially:
    “Ginny asked you to roofie a set of buns named after a religious execution for her non-denominational party?”
    (quote posted to tumblr)


favicon Sea Glass by [livejournal.com profile] oakstone730 ( G | 2,400 ) 14-May-2017
Summary: When death comes unexpectedly the lives of loved ones are torn apart until the healing slowly begins.
A remix of The Secret of the Sea by [livejournal.com profile] persephoneapple

  • Beautifully told and lovely. Amazing how you can feel so much emotion in just this short piece. Even though it's a story of grief, there's still a hopefulness and sense of love that pervades it. So good.
    I also really appreciated that this remix introduced me to the original story by persephoneapple which I hadn't read before, and was a great find.
    (quote posted to tumblr)


favicon Dogged by [livejournal.com profile] tigersilver ( R | 5,800 ) 12-May-2017
Summary: Harry knows exactly why he freed Draco Malfoy, the problem is finding the right words to describe it.
A remix of Jailbait by [livejournal.com profile] spindlerkiss

  • I enjoyed this so much! Very fun and amusingly sexy. And the author really captured the feeling of the type of scatterbrained-sex-addled thoughts a 19-year-old might have, and how they don't let themselves worry too much about consequences :)
    I especially enjoyed Harry and Draco's aborted argument about Antarctica, and how Harry gave in in part because of sexual frustration :) Seeing this all play out from Harry's side was particularly funny.
    (quote posted to tumblr)


favicon Two Things About Harry Potter by [livejournal.com profile] ustorycollector ( E | 3,000 ) 4-May-2017
Summary: Draco knows two things about Harry Potter. He likes to stare at Draco, and he's got a weird thing for a piece of crumpled parchment that should be in the bin.
A remix of Map Kinks / Mischief Well Managed by [livejournal.com profile] khalulu

  • This was really delightful! I love how the author created a whole story with just a series of short vignettes - I really fit the mood of Khalulu's original drabble that way.
    I think this is probably my favorite line:
    "This man defeated the darkest wizard of all time. And he’s thrown by Draco complementing his arse. He’s almost begging to be teased."
    (quote posted to tumblr)


favicon The Shape of the World Is the Shape of You In It by [livejournal.com profile] megyal ( PG-13 | 3,100 ) 18-May-2017
Summary: He has dreams, and they are only small parts of a world he probably knows.
A remix of The Shape of the World by [livejournal.com profile] bixgirl1

  • This remix is so in tune with the original work, and yet also adds to it in a meaningful and important way.
    I loved the dream sequences, which showed the reader how lost Harry was feeling, and how the mirror was prompting him to ask the right questions - so cool!
    This was just a really lovely glimpse into characters we all wanted to know more about and a great showcase into Harry's state of mind.

The [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost fest showered us with so many lovely little fics this winter and just posted their masterlist today. So I'm taking the opportunity to rec a few fics from the fest I especially enjoyed :)



favicon Sorting Out Their Priorities by [livejournal.com profile] sassy_cissa ( NC-17 | 2,600 ) 9-Jan-2017
Summary: When a foreign dignitary makes a move on Harry, Draco does whatever is necessary to stake his claim.
The best kind of PWP. You feel like you know these characters and the situation feels warranted. Plus it's hot, super hot :)


favicon Six Christmases by [livejournal.com profile] thistle_verse ( R | 4,800 ) 3-Dec-2016
Summary: A year ago— even a few months ago— Harry would have heeded the note of warning in Malfoy’s voice. He would have been more careful. But care, he thought now, twisted and flowed with the change in landscape; like magic, it fed on a continual change of form.
This was incredibly lovely. So nicely told, and their character growth carefully built up over the years.


favicon Ribbons and Bows by [livejournal.com profile] lauren3210 ( NC-17 | 1,600 ) 15-Dec-2016
Summary: Harry comes home from work to a prettily wrapped surprise
PWP, but done very well. Hot and lovely.


favicon Heat of the Moment by [livejournal.com profile] writcraft ( NC-17 | 2,250 ) 4-Feb-2017
Summary: Harry’s never felt much like an Alpha but that all changes when Draco Malfoy turns up on his doorstep, asking Harry for help.
Hot and fun. Good ABO dynamics. Makes you wish for more :)


favicon Exposure by [livejournal.com profile] kittyaugust ( PG | 910 ) 8-Jan-2017
Summary: Snow at Christmas time can be a luxuriously tempting thing.
Lovely little scene. Very sweet, and hints at so much backstory I want to know!


favicon Christmas Presents by [livejournal.com profile] fantasyfiend09 ( PG | 1,600 ) 16-Dec-2016
Summary: Draco reflects on what Christmas has meant to him over the years.
This was beautifully told, and created a clear depiction of who Draco was then and who he is now. Really moving, especially the way Harry stood up for him in court. Pre-slash, with a not-yet-happy ending.
snowgall: (close-up)
This may be my last rec post for some time. But the [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix fest is one of my favorites in the fandom, so I had to do one more. I love the idea of authors writing fanfic of other fanfic.



favicon The Lily, the Violet, the Tiny Babe by [livejournal.com profile] khalulu ( PG | 1,300 words ) 13-Mar-2016
Summary: From beyond the Veil, she senses that her son Harry needs her – but who is that very blond baby in his arms? Learning that she is a grandmother takes Lily on an emotional journey.
A remix of The Scent of Violets by [livejournal.com profile] sassy_cissa

  • This was a stunningly beautiful story. Seeing Harry through his departed mother's eyes is so unusual and unexpected, and yet I found it so very moving. Especially watching Lily work through her complex feelings of protectiveness, hurt, betrayal, and finally acceptance of Harry's relationship with Draco. There is so much depth here that I can't do it justice - you'll just have to read it. I really loved it. Fantastic remix.

extended rec at hd-storyroom



favicon The Thing About Cats and Dogs by [livejournal.com profile] megyal ( PG-13 | 3,900 words ) 17-Mar-2016
Summary: A very small view into the life of Harry and Draco and a cat and a dog.
A remix of Cats and Dogs by [livejournal.com profile] 8c

  • I enjoyed this so much! The wry humor in this story immediately captivated me. I loved the perfect sense of each scene - brief but fully realized - and the excellent glimpses into the complicated and delicate conversational minefields they navigate. Lovely fic with great feels - and really not so very fluffy, despite the tags :)

extended rec at hd-storyroom



favicon And Wednesday Too by [livejournal.com profile] disapparater ( R | 5,600 words ) 4-Mar-2016
Summary: Draco never expected anything better than his two dead end jobs and a cramped flat, but when Harry Potter waltzes into his life, can anyone blame him for wanting a little more?
A remix of Tuesday Nights by [livejournal.com profile] firethesound

  • Loved getting to see Draco's perspective for this story! The author really captured his inner conflict and insecurity masked with bravado, all while still keeping the sweet tone of the original.


favicon There Is Always the Moon by [livejournal.com profile] firethesound ( PG-13 | 159,000 words ) 18-Mar-2016
Summary: Draco's life after the war is everything he wanted it to be: it's simple, and quiet, and predictable, and safe. But when a mysterious curse shatters the peace he'd worked so hard to build, there's only one person he can trust to help him. After all, Harry Potter has saved his life before. Now Draco has to believe that Potter will be able to do it one more time.
A remix of If the Sun Goes Black by [livejournal.com profile] pasdexcuses

  • Holy amazeballs this fic. This fic is the most fantastic backstory to the original. It starts out strongly Draco-centric in the best way, drawing the reader into his post-war life and dedication to his work. But when something disturbing starts happening to him, the only one Draco trusts to help him is Harry Potter. Even though they've barely spoken since the war, Harry decides the best way to help Draco without raising suspicions is for them to pretend to be in a relationship (of course!) Thus we are treated to the most amazing fake-relationship story ever, where Draco is trope-savvy enough to be worried about rogue mistletoe, and they're both falling ever deeper in love. What makes it so wonderful is that we are immersed in the slow build of their relationship over the course of many months, and nothing about it feels rushed. Do note that this is a remix however, so the ending doesn't quite tie everything up as neatly as it would otherwise - it's meant to flesh out the backstory of the original.

What follows is a list of my picks for the best Drarry fanfiction of 2015
(37 fics, sorted by date published)

Note: There are so many lists of favorite Harry/Draco fanfiction, but I'm doing something a little different. Rather than create a list based on genre or length or era or whatever, I've decided to do a series of "best-of X year" lists. This means the year the work was published not the year I read it.

Once again, this list was hard to pare down! I read more fanfic published in 2015 than in any other year, and between my LJ blog and [livejournal.com profile] hd_storyroom, I recced 93 Drarry fics from 2015. Consequently lots of good fics aren't included on this list. In the end any list is just an arbitrary thing based on one person's no doubt flawed opinion. It says nothing about the quality of any fics not on it!

More lists:

2015 list--click to expand )

General notes:

  • The "original post" column provides links to the first place I can find evidence of the work online. However, it can be really tough to determine when and where a work was first published (see my rant here: Dates Matter). So it could be that a fic was actually published earlier somewhere else and I didn't know it. Corrections are welcome.
  • I've read a lot of HD fiction, but I certainly haven't read it all, so if I've left off something you think I shouldn't have, I'm happy for you to let me know.
  • I may continue to add works to this list but I will try to keep the total number to something reasonable. (On the challenge of maintaining lists)
  • My goal is to add lists for other years as well, time permitting.

How my fic preferences will skew the lists:

  • I tend to like fics which contain explicit sex, so the list will probably skew that way. However, I prefer that there be an actual plot, not just sex, and I read PG rated fics too--just fewer of them.
  • I like almost all the standard tropes, but I don't usually go for non-magical AUs, unhappy endings, dark!fic, or threesomes
  • I don't give a toss who's on top or bottom, so you'll find both here.
  • I shy away from epic-length fanfiction unless I'm very confident in the author, so most of my recs will be less than 100,000 words.

There was an abundance of lovely fics, ficlets, and art to be had all through December as part of [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost! I was especially lucky to get three amazing gifts this year, which I previously recced here - go read :) But other people got lovely gifts as well, and so I'm reccing my favorites of the gifts that weren't for me below :)

Oh man, [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised continues to be the best HD fest of the year! The authors and artists all bring their A-game to this fest, making it so hard to narrow down the choices of which ones to rec. But I persevered, and bring you my favorite works of fic and art from HD-erised 2015 :)



Fic Recs:

favicon Solder by [livejournal.com profile] oakstone730 ( NC-17 | 35,000 ) 29-Dec-2015
Summary: Seven years ago, Harry disappeared out of Draco and Scorpius's life without a trace after Harry's addictions destroyed his and Draco's marriage. Now, Harry’s back, and Draco wants to believe he’s changed. But Harry isn’t the only one haunted by the past.
Review... )

favicon Dear Uncle Plume by [livejournal.com profile] eidheann_writes ( NC-17 | 16,500 ) 17-Dec-2015
Summary: Life after war is nothing like Draco expected. He only hopes he'll survive it. Especially when his friends are less than sympathetic.
Review... )

favicon Any Instrument by [livejournal.com profile] dicta_contrion ( NC-17 | 130,000 ) 19-Dec-2015
Summary: Draco Malfoy wouldn't go back to England for anything less than an exceptional case. Being asked to figure out why Harry Potter can't control his magic might be exceptional enough to qualify.
Review... )

favicon The Deeper Symbolism Behind Golden Apples by [livejournal.com profile] oldenuf2nb ( R | 26,700 ) 16-Dec-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?
Review... )

favicon Incongruent by [livejournal.com profile] agentmoppet ( NC-17 | 41,000 ) 28-Dec-2015
Summary: The war has left its mark on everyone. The Ministry, as usual, is only too happy to take advantage. But Harry won't let them destroy his home, no matter what he has to do to stop them. And no matter if a certain Draco Malfoy insists on getting him off track.
Review... )

favicon A Convenient Impracticality by [livejournal.com profile] firethesound ( NC-17 | 38,000 ) 1-Dec-2015
Summary: Somehow Harry ends up agreeing to a fake relationship with his ex-nemesis-turned-friendly-acquaintance-with-benefits, except for some reason it involves an awful lot of actual dating and, sadly, not much sex. Confused? Harry is too, but when has anything with Draco Malfoy ever been as straightforward as it seems?
Review... )

favicon I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor by [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore ( NC-17 | 28,000 ) 18-Dec-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.
Review... )

favicon The Destiny You Sold by [livejournal.com profile] tryslora ( NC-17 | 59,000 ) 12-Dec-2015
Summary: In which Draco knits, Harry makes wands, and things get very tangled up between them.
Review... )

favicon Almost Like Song by [livejournal.com profile] melusinahp ( NC-17 | 7,000 ) 16-Dec-2015
Summary: They were once lovers, but Harry hasn't seen Draco in years, so it's a bit of a shock when he appears to warn Harry about an upcoming Auror mission.
Review... )

favicon Dirty Talk on Christmas Morning by [livejournal.com profile] amorette ( NC-17 | 1,700 ) 24-Dec-2015
Summary: Emotions run thick as the boys exchange gifts on their first Christmas morning together.
Review... )




Art Recs:

A Night At The Leaky Cauldron by [livejournal.com profile] isinuyasha ( PG | Photoshop ) 10-Dec-2015
Summary: It took a while for Draco to notice that he didn't really mind that Potter kept dragging him along to these "cozy" after work get-togethers at the Leaky Cauldron.
This is so great. I love how the artist drew all of Harry and Draco's friends, and still kept the focus on the two of them. And the way Harry is leaning in to whisper to Draco just says so much about the closeness of their relationship. Everybody looks so great and the holiday lights in the background are so festive! Wonderful job all around :)
Snowy Snogfest by [livejournal.com profile] mybutterflower (mitsouparker) ( PG | Digital Painting ) 25-Dec-2015
Summary: Draco & Harry are snogging in the snow after shopping in Hogsmeade.
This is absolutely stunning! I love how absorbed in each other they are (evidenced by the spilled candies!), and the lovely color scheme and soft-focus background. The contrast between Draco's hair and Harry's hair is perfect too, and the whole scene is so amazingly holiday appropriate. A gorgeous and beautiful piece of art!




Note: Authors and artists are still anonymous. Names will be added after the reveals!

So much wonderful art has been posted during the [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart fest this year! These were my favorites, but you should check them all out - seriously!



The Boy Who Scored by [livejournal.com profile] alby_mangroves ( R | Pastels ) 26-Nov-2015
From the prompt: Blowjob or sex in the shower
This piece is so gorgeous! The expressions on both of their faces, how we get a hint of what's happening but nothing actually explicit, the look of the shower, the artist's skill with working with pastels - everything is so well done! Such wonderful naturalistic details too, like the way Draco is holding Harry's glasses. Beautiful, beautiful piece of art.
Salvation by [livejournal.com profile] citrus_lime ( PG-13 | Digital ) 8-Nov-2015
From the prompt: Harry as an Angel, Draco as a Devil – or the other way around, Draco as an Angel, Harry as a Devil.
Another beautiful and stunning piece of art! I love the pose and their expressions - it looks like a renaissance painting. They both look like angels to me :)
The Photo Booth by [livejournal.com profile] isinuyasha ( PG | Photoshop ) 4-Nov-2015
From the prompt: Harry and Draco are in a photo booth. They can make a face, smile, bicker, kiss (and even more…) or whatever the artist has in mind.
I love the progression of poses from the kissing booth! It captures so much of how I think these two would be. A lovely and well rendered piece :)
Aurors by [livejournal.com profile] lokeloke ( PG | Photoshop ) 24-Nov-2015
From the prompt: A dark alleyway/street // Uniform, boots, gloves, belts, buckles *nngh* // Wands drawn, casting spells
I love how the artist conceived of their uniforms, and the determination in Harry's expression. The whole thing is so very well drawn. I also love how the background gives the impression of detail, yet is indistinct so as not to detract from the focus of the piece. Beautifully done :)
Voldie's Minions by [livejournal.com profile] naadi ( PG | Photoshop ) 14-Nov-2015
From the prompt: Up to the artist. I just want to see Harry and Draco as any Minion character of your choice.
OMG, I straight up love this to pieces! It's so cute and hilarious and manages to be the Despicable Me/Harry Potter fusion I didn't even know I needed ♥
I love how well the artist captured the look and spirit of the Minions (ooopsies? - ha!) and I love that they gave them all the necessary characteristics to make them recognizably Harry and Draco as well. Kudos to the mystery artist!




Note: Artists are still anonymous. Names will be added after reveals.

The [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair fest has just ended, and I was really impressed by the overall quality of the fics! I enjoyed reading all of them, but these were my favorites:

P.S. If you missed it, I posted a great-big wrap-up post yesterday of all of my 31 (!!!) Rectober posts, which amounted to 157 different fics. Check it out!

I thought I'd finish up rectober with a set of my favorite fics involving time travel, in keeping with the amazing favicon Tea and No Sympathy which I recced yesterday.

What if it's not all hearts and flowers after Harry and Draco finally get together? (No! Say it isn't so!) In real life, certainly, most relationships suffer ups and downs through the years, and in some cases the downs can break you apart.

While I admit that I generally prefer to read about how these characters get together in the first place (yes, I know, I am such a sap!), these fics do a wonderful job exploring what might come after. And it's often the case that in so doing we get to explore a more nuanced, mature version of love than what we see in the early stages. And that's not a bad thing :)

Animal transformation fics are different from traditional "creature" fics (such as veelas, vampires, and werewolves) as in the latter cases the character is usually considered not-quite-human. And even in their 'human' form they will have heightened senses or additional powers and such. No, here they are just temporarily transformed into an unremarkable animal, whether by choice or by curse.

As I was putting this list together I realized that this trope is most often used as part of an "Identity Unknown" type plot. In the fics recced below, it turns out it's always Harry who transforms into some sort of animal, and Draco who is temporarily clueless as to his true identity.

Now that I think about it, this is the opposite direction of deception as in my previous sets of Identity Unknown recs, where Harry is more often the clueless one. This may or may not be significant. Hmmm....

While the transformation is most often due to Harry's being an Animagus, sometimes it's caused by a curse instead. Either way, Draco isn't able to figure it out right away, which is part of the fun :)

First times are some my favorite parts of fanfic, because there is so much emotion that can be caught up in that moment and it can reveal so much about how these characters feel about each other. And lucky for us, there is a plethora of amazing fanfic written which explores all the many possibilities for Harry and Draco's first time.

The possibilities illustrated in these fics are really quite varied. Some first times take place during Hogwarts, some afterwards, some fics start with them already in a relationship and some don't, and a variety of acts are considered 'first time sex' - it doesn't always have to be full penetration.

But I did have some requirements to narrow this set down to a reasonable size!

These fics all feature:

  • A first time that is earnest and meaningful for both of them (so no hate sex, or sex pollen, or PWP)
  • Both boys as virgins
  • Appropriate amounts of awkwardness/fumbling/cluelessness/trying to figure things out (no instant sex gods here!)

It took me a while to appreciate Mpreg as a trope, and I still don't seek it out regularly. But some authors do such a great job with it that I can't help but love their fics.

I've mentioned before that my very favorite Mpreg fic is favicon You First, Loser by [livejournal.com profile] zeitgeistic, but since I put that fic in my Humorous Fics rec list, I won't be re-reccing it here. More's the pity - if you haven't read that one, make sure you do!

The Mpreg fics on this list are a lot angstier than that fic anyway, so I guess it would have been out of place here :)

Draco seems to get pregnant much more often than Harry in fanfic (as I've also discussed before, with stats!) which you'll notice in the division of the two sets of fics below. Note: This list is far from exhaustive, but I was trying to keep it to a reasonable length and variety. I guess I will have to do another Mpreg rec list someday!

Another all-time-favorite trope of mine is characters being forced to tell the truth. Awkward confessions and embarrassment FTW! In the world of HP, this is usually accomplished through the use of veritaserum, though sometimes we get unusual curses instead. It's all good :)

Great fics in which either Harry or Draco (or both!) are compelled to tell the truth below.

Guys...I'm having a bit of a hard time trying to divide up all my favorite stories into rec lists! I'm trying not to make every list about 8th year AND I'm trying to avoid to creating enormous rec posts with 20+ fics! But I seriously have a list of over a hundred 8th year fics I love, and I'm not going to be able to fit them all in by the end :(

For what it's worth, I am also trying not to repeat fics during rectober, so that means trying to place each fic on just one list each, even though some fics could easily fit into two or more. Case in point, [livejournal.com profile] who_la_hoop's How to Handle an Enemy series, which could have fit in the earlier party games rec list or the upcoming veritaserum theme. But instead it's here!

And I built a whole theme around it too :) Here, then, are "awesomely smutty 8th year stories which are so good they required sequels" ♥

Harry and Draco making a bet (or deal) and the loser being forced to provide sexual favors to the winner is another trope I adore. Some of these have the loser secretly happy to have lost, but not all of them! The winner is almost always happy, however :)

(There's a popular version of this trope which involves making the loser wear a dress - or heels, makeup, lingerie, etc. - but that's not really a kink I'm into, so none of these involve cross-dressing, sorry!)

Eighth year is a popular era, so I'm doing more eighth year recs :) These are all drabbles and ficlets (less than 1000 words) which nevertheless manage to deliver great scenes and images.

I've seen rec requests for this trope before on other blogs, so I know people want to read these fics (and so do I!) The thing is, there aren't yet a whole lot of ABO fics written for the Harry/Draco pairing. Indeed, many of the ones I know of are werewolf fics (see yesterday's rec post). But these are my favorites of the non-werewolf ones I've read so far.
