Here are my favorite fics from the first ever [ profile] hd_collab fest. Authors are currently anonymous. Names will be added after reveals.

If you're wanting an angsty fic, I recommend one of these:

favicon O Sinners, Let's Go Down (NC-17 | 32,000) by [ profile] birdsofshore with art by [ profile] raitala
Read more... )

favicon Up in the Air (PG-13 | 8,500) by [ profile] dicta_contrion with art by [ profile] kazuya22
Read more... )

favicon Until It Rains (Don’t Keep Me Waiting Too Long) (NC-17 | 7,400) by [ profile] lumosed_quill and [ profile] sdkshelly
Read more... )

If you're wanting light-hearted comedy instead, may I suggest one of these:

favicon The Four Ds of Apparition (or: Destination, Determination, Deliberation, and Dicks) (NC-17 | 36,500) by [ profile] eidheann_writes and [ profile] firethesound
Read more... )

favicon The Morning After (R | 5,500) by [ profile] birdsofshore and [ profile] capitu
Read more... )

In addition to fics, there was lots of lovely art for this fest as well, and much of it seems to be by new-to-me artists. I especially enjoyed the art that accompanied O Sinners, Let's Go Down and Up in the Air above, as well as the stand-alone piece Draco Malfoy and the Temple of Runes by [ profile] iwao and [ profile] this_bloody_cat. Go check them out!

Because I'm curious about these things, I wondered which authors had been writing Drarry for the longest time. There have been literally thousands of Drarry fanfic authors over the years (not kidding: I've got over a thousand names in my database alone). So in order to find an answer to this question I decided to limit my results by these requirements:

  • The author should have published their first Drarry fic before Deathly Hallows came out on July 21, 2007
    I needed some cut-off date to start with, and this seemed as reasonable a way to limit the list as any

  • Authors should still be currently writing Drarry
    What this means for me is that an author will have published at least one new Drarry fic since May 1, 2014 (i.e. approximately in the last year)

  • Authors should have written at least five Drarry fics in this time period
    I included this restriction because there were a few authors in my database who happened to have written one early Drarry and another one more recently but who usually write for other fandoms or ships. It didn't feel as comparable to the other authors on this list who had been more dependably Drarry/HP focused.

So who did I come up with using these restrictions?

My database is large but not infinite. Any omissions are unintentional - if you know of an author who should be on this list who I didn't include, please let me know ASAP!

Keep in mind:
  • You might be wondering where [ profile] faithwood and [ profile] who_la_hoop are on this list. So far as I can tell, they published their first Drarry fics after DH came out. If I'm wrong about that, I would love to know it!

  • If an author has currently written a fic which is still anonymous for a fest, I can't know that, so I couldn't factor that in. I'm sorry if that means I left anyone off this list. Let me know after reveals, and I'll fix it.

  • Co-authorship sometimes messes up my search results (for *reasons*) so if an author co-authored early fics I might not have realized it and may have missed them in my search. Let me know and I'll add them in!

  • If an author's early fics aren't dated, then I can't know when they were published and so couldn't include them in my search. Please try to verify dates for me if you think I've missed someone. (Oh hey, another reason dates matter :)
