Happy New Year and HP Recs!!!
Are you looking for some great fics to nurse that hangover? I got some recs for you. I’m so behind on [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays it’s not even funny. Though I imagine everyone following that fest is in the same boat. Just how many novellas were in that fest? The two weeks of postings have so many tempting fics, lots of long, plotty goodness! Thank God those lovely mods gave us two weeks before reveals.

Said and Unsaid (or, The Value of Knowing When to Stop Talking) by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [PG-13] (15k)
Summary: When the Interrogator asked if he had anything to say on his own behalf, Draco shook his head, his lips pressed tight in a thin line. There was nothing to say that wouldn’t sound like an excuse.
This is a wonderful quiet fic of Draco’s journey to finding his way in the first few months of the post war world. Both Draco and Harry’s characterisations are stellar and the writing is beautiful.

Bitter Honey, Green Night by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [NC-17] (14k)
Summary: Sometimes we want to be saved; sometimes we need to grow up.
I have much to say about this fic. It’s quite a wild ride of fluff and silliness and dumb jokes that you can’t help but laugh at, and this clever plot that sneaks up on you while you are a bit drunk on cider and banter, and then you realize the fic isn’t what you thought it was at all, but rather something more. Give it a chance to show you something. You won't be sorry.

Between the Known & The Unknown by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [NC-17] (14k)
Summary: Discovering what is behind Draco Malfoy's kidnapping is just the beginning of the mystery. What comes next fits Harry between the known and the unknown, the deepest recesses and cavities of the heart, where his desire is tangled and taut in unmistakable turmoil.
Warning(s): werewolf!Draco, noncon (for the Fenrir/Draco bits), bestiality (if you consider werewolf/human bestiality? for the Fenrir/Draco bits), violence, blood, rimming
First – read the warnings, then second – read my rec. FWIW - I’m very careful about reading non-con and I adored this fic and will gladly read it again. The Fenrir/Draco bits were horrifying and raw – ngl - but not overly detailed such that I couldn't read or had to skim. For me this wasn’t a ‘dark fic’ but rather a fic with dark elements. It’s an incredible hurt/comfort. With hero!Harry who is confused about life and becomes obsessed with solving this case and ‘saving Draco’. Both Harry and Draco are wonderfully characterised and their feral interaction and the fucking GORGEOUS sex scene --UNF!!! – will stay in my brain forever.

Your hair is bare live wire by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays PG-13
Summary: They needed a hollow.
Gorgeous and poetic. Incredibly dream-like

Unwrapped by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [R]
Summary: Draco wanted to get Harry a Christmas present that would both turn him on... and piss him off. And it came to him: little would turn Harry on more than a naked!Draco, and little would piss Harry off more than said naked!Draco on his front porch, in full view of the neighbors.
ahahahha!!!! I adore this to bits. Draco’s is just precious in this art. Gorgeous and so well done.

In other news, it’s January 1 – I managed to get all my holiday gifts completed except for one. [livejournal.com profile] vaysh11, I could not find a Harry/Draco fic based on a book that I thought you would like and you hadn’t yet read. I will gladly write you a drabble or a recipe or... mod yet another comm with you as an apology. ;)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! [NWS - in any way at all] [Harry/Draco] but SERIOUSLY no matter what fandom you are in, if you like seeing gorgeous fanart with cock... yeah... CLICK!

This is custom rec for [livejournal.com profile] ineffably_roma. Her request was fun, but it took a while. *g* She said: I'd love to see a custom rec for a story for the smutty_claus fest (het). I won't list a pairing but if you see something that might interest you. Go for it.

Here you go, lovely. Hope you enjoy.

A Love Song Like the Way It's Meant To Be by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus
Pairings: Scorpius/Rose, Harry/Pansy
Summary: As Rose tries to find a way to tell her family she's in love with the son of their old enemy, she is heartened (and a bit weirded out, honestly) to discover that her uncle is shagging someone so much worse.
Rating: NC-17
Length: 29,600 words
Warnings: None! The kids are 19 and the grown-ups are forty-something. Harry and Ginny are divorced, so, no infidelity, but all Epilogue kids do exist.

I'm reccing this to you for sooooo many reasons! First this is a great fic, and I'm really reccing it like mad to everyone who enjoys het and next genners!

It has fabulous women: Pansy is sex on a stick and Rose… awe, Rose is studying to be an Auror! Bless her little heart – why aren't there more Auror!Rose fics out there??? Auror!Rose FTW! She is a delightful mix of both Ron and Hermione. Also, her being an Auror-in-training isn't just an "author needs a career for Rose, insert misc career here" it is an actual plot point, and says something about her character.

Also! Scorpius is a doll! He and Rose are this amazingly adorable couple together, funny and sweet and romantic, which is an amazing juxtaposition with Harry and Pansy who are absolutely filthy delish together.

It's long and plotty and romantic, with a great cast of characters. In other words, it feels perfect for you and I hope you find a quiet moment over the hols to enjoy it.

ILU, Rom
Merry Christmas.

Elemental by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NC-17] (17k)
Summary: When a group of witches and wizards fall ill, their magical power mysteriously drained while on tour of the Shetlands, Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter must get beyond their past and work together to solve the case and prevent further tragedy.
The UST that starts this fic absolutely sizzles. I was immediately drawn in devoured this fic. Interesting plot and great use of magic all wrapped in a delicious second chance story.

Five Times Draco Malfoy Got Sacked (And One Time He Didn't) by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NC-17] (19k)
Summary: After the Dark Lord was destroyed, Draco Malfoy had to start all over. He had no idea it would be quite so difficult.
This fic could have gone many ways with this premise (post war Draco lost and frustrated and constantly getting fired from crappy jobs) either endless angsty or total crack, but the author chose something right in the middle. Draco was a perfect mix of vulnerability and strength, resign and hope. It was easy to empathise with him, enjoy his successes and pity him for his losses without feeling manipulated. In the end it was a very fun read, an a great story.

This happened while you blinked by [livejournal.com profile] ile_o Harry/Draco WS
ahahha! Adorable and delish comic of a missing scene from DH part 1 by a new HD artist. Welcome to fandom, dear.

Lonely Christmas by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest Little Harry WS
Prompt(s): Short Prompt #13: Lonely Christmas

Narnia Magic> by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest Harry/Draco WS
Prompt(s): Prompt #70 - Harry/Draco - A lamppost (à la Narnia), a quiet snow falling
Beautiful, tender Wintery moment. *happy sigh*

(Ninth Rehearsal for) The Main Event anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NC-17] (9k)
Summary: The first invitation Draco received to exact revenge on Harry Potter was a thrill. The second, he'd only considered to be an unexpected bonus. By the third, the chance for a repeat performance of Potter on his knees, bound and gasping, was one that Draco couldn't turn down. This is the ninth time.

THIS FIC!!! PEOPLE!!! THIS FIC!!! NNNNNNNNNNNNNGH! Okay - I don't have time to express properly exactly why I love it, and well... it's hard to do so without spoiling it. But I'll point you to [livejournal.com profile] melusinahp's rec HERE because.. yeah... what she said. :D
Totally. I love the D/s here and the consent issues which were just right to me, erotic without being disturbing just... that kind of 'force my hand so that I sit back and let this happen because I want it to but will never admit it' sort of consent-confusion. HELLO DUB-CON BUTTON HOW ARE YOU THIS MORNING? But this kink fic is wonderfully complex in the psychology of the characters (and way better than I am doing justice to here) and the fic is wonderfully told with brilliant writing, brilliant characterisation and sex that will melt your keyboard.

The Lovers' Circle by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NC-17] (13K)
Summary: Tired of feeling alone, Harry agrees to play a matchmaking game with the other eighth years. It's just a game, after all. What harm could it do?
Oh, yes. Everything I love about the Drinking Games trope. Sizzling hot moments, UNF! And lovely completion. Hee!

It is the Moonlight, It is the Rain > by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [R] (2K)
Summary: It is always dark and raining when he arrives; it is always cold and uncomfortable when he goes.
This is a gift for mijeli. And I just... IDEK know what to say. But that it’s so damn perfect for her that it actually makes me tear up. It beautifully written. God, this author is brilliant and wicked with their words. It’s an infidelity fic and all that entails. I wasn’t left devastated, but it’s a beautiful 2k that gnawed me raw. So much of what I adore about H/D is right there in this messed up fic.

To the Victor anon @ daily deviant Draco Malfoy/Ginny Weasley NWS
I adore this artist’s style. No matter the pairing, I always check them out with they post at DD. And with this pairing... Nnnnngh.

A Corridor Full of Hot Strong Love anon @ [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus Harry/Luna NWS

Love and Scandal by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco/Astoria/Ginny [NWS]
ahhaha! Brilliant bit of sarcasm and snark to mix with the delicious porn.

Fragile Reality by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [WS]
long comic, and so well done. So much story being told here and the artists does a great job portraying the emotion of the piece.

The first of I’m sure many rec posts for [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays

In Vino Veritas by anon at [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [R] (17k)
Summary: They say weddings are the perfect occasion for bringing together family and friends; but what about old enemies?
This fic has a wonderful feel to it. Truly a romantic fantasy with Harry at this exotic local, a gorgeous mansion surrounded by all his friends – and the new and improved!Draco Malfoy (who happens to be stunning and clever and flirty). The author does a fantastic job of transporting the reader (like Harry) into this wonderful get away, where silly things like old house rivalries just don’t mean that much over time and Draco is simply irresistible. *happy sigh* Lovely, lovely read.

You Can Leave Your Hat On by anon at [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [PG] (4k)
Summary: Harry and Ron, for reasons beyond their control, find themselves shopping for hats at March and Malfoy’s Magical Millinery.
Absolutely adorable. Very sweet and funny. I read with a huge smile the whole time. :)

The Uninvited Guest by anon at [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [NC-17] (20k)
Summary: Harry is cursed with an undeniable need by a spell gone sour by age and disuse, and only Draco can calm his uninvited guest.
Feral!sex!!!! UNF! Bulletproof kink, bb. Want more info? Really? Okay... This is an incredibly compelling story of Draco (who is a bit lost in life and trying to find his way, trying to fight depression and find his purpose) discovering he is very needed – in more ways than he can imagine - by cursed!Harry. The UST is just delish and the depiction of Harry’s curse is incredibly well done. The reader is immersed into Harry’s POV as he struggles with control and his primal needs.

Pssst [livejournal.com profile] froggie if you haven’t yet.... FERAL SEX! Go READ! :D

gah! I need holiday icons! I'll be off searching for those today.
marguerite_26: (HP VK as Harry)
[livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays has begun posting!

The opening art In the Interest of Peace and Goodwill (in case you haven't yet seen it recced!) is blow-my-mind fucking fantastic. It was posted at midnight last night and is currently at 5 pages of comments.

DUDE! HP H/D is ALIVE AND WELL in case anyone was wondering.

There is something about [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays that just warms my heart. The participants go all out, giving gifts that are really something special for their giftee. And this one is no exception. Not only was this an awesome art, but I know almost everyone who saw it was also thinking OMG! ALAANA is going to LOVE this! I know I was. :D

So I purpose a toast to a wonderful month of fabulous fic to come. Cheers, fandom. You are doing just fine.
