Reparation by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NWS]
[just in case there was ANYONE in ANY FANDOM that missed this. OMG THIS ART!!!!!!!!!! CLICK ON IT!!!!!!!! unless you are at work. in which case it will get you fired.]

Riches and Wondersby anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria
Summary: The affair starts on a Thursday.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~9000
This summary, though simple, is perfect. It represents exactly what this fic is about: an affair, simple, uncomplicated and stripped bare. It does not rip your heart out or make you ache for the injustice of it all (or at least it didn’t for me) it’s an infidelity fic that is long term and unfaltering and a simple fact of these characters lives. I know that is a huge squick for some people. If it’s not, then I recommend this read. I don’t think I’ve ever read an infidelity fic quite like this: hot and satisfying despite the inherit wrongness of infidelity.

[as a side note: I’m super behind on reading in this fest. and even further behind on commenting. I will get to commenting on all the fics I’ve recced. I just need more time in the day.]

ALSO! Guessing poll! I'm in there somewhere...

Sweets for the Holiday by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus Ernie Macmillan/Hannah Abbott (not a pairing I ship ... or have ever heard of... but nnngh this art is hot)
Guilt of those in risk of getting caught by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NWS]


Letters of Persistence by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco
Summary: Draco is staunch in his refusal. But, really, when has that ever worked out for him before?
Rating: R
Word Count: ~2000
This fic is such an adorable fic for the kink that it represents. I don’t want to spoil you for it, because I think it’s charming how the author reveals what Harry and Draco are talking about in their letters. For 2k, it tells a great story and makes for a fun read. If you are worried about the kink, comment or PM and ask me.

Luck of the Devil by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco
Summary: Draco never imagined he'd end up working in Rodolphus Lestrange's casino after the war, but fate has a twisted sense of humour. While the job has it perks, the downside is a bitch--especially when Roddy makes him an offer he can't refuse involving his old rival, Harry Potter.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 36k
I think the summary of this fic might make people think it is somehow an AU... but it’s not. It’s a continuation of canon, post-DH, pre-Epilogue that has Draco trying to make his way in the post-war world with quite literary no luck at all. He is manipulated at every turn, and like we saw in HBP, Draco holds the welfare of his family very seriously but is also terribly inept at carrying out orders that go against his own morals. The result is an intense look at Draco’s character mixed with humour and sex and violence. It’s gritty but not so dark that it made me uncomfortable. Well worth the read for Draco’s journey alone, though Harry is spot-on, and delicious to boot.

Various pairings, though mostly H/D

You Belong to Me by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays [NWS] Harry/Draco
Summary: Draco has a pet.

Fan by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus [NWS] Ginny/Draco
Summary: Ginny's playing Quidditch full time for the Holyhead Harpies. Draco comes to watch her play, but never seems to show any actual outward interest or team spirit during her matches. However, a secret fanboy lies within. :D

Harry Potter and the Problematic Partnership by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco
Summary: Forced to work together on an important case within the Ministry, Harry and Draco find that if they're not letting their animosity get in the way, they might actually be brilliant together. For as long as the assignment lasts, at least.
Rating: R
Word Count: Approaching 25,000.
This fic sizzles with UST. The plot was fascinating and I got a little brain orgasm from all the clever ways that Harry and Draco used their complimentary skills to work together. But the UST and banter was really what sold me on this one. Delish.

At Your Service by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco
Summary: Hogwarts students are in danger; Harry is determined to save them all. There's only one thing he knows for certain: Draco Malfoy is somehow involved.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~96,000
I want to do this justice, because it deserves it. So I’ll first direct you to [livejournal.com profile] melusinahp’s rec but be warned that there are spoilers in the comments because it’s the sort of fic you want to talk about. This fanfic is unique in that it feels like a book 8 – which I’m afraid has become a trope as far as comments go. ‘wow! This could be book 8!’ but this one... actually could (if JKR wanted Harry and Draco to have explicit sex in her book). But outside of the pairing, the characters and the plot are done perfectly in JKRs style. The humour is true to the book humour. The way Harry ‘notices things’ (how his friends are acting, insignificant details) and as a reader you know these things are clues and you tuck them away because they are clearly important and you’ll need them later. And mixed in with all the typical collection of characters moving through eight year with an odd mystery you have this slow burning ~thing~ going on between Draco and Harry. This wasn’t using fanfic to ‘fix’ canon, but using fanfic to continue canon... with H/D as a reasonable possibility.

Scenes From An Affair by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus Hermione/James II
Summary: Hermione knows it's a mistake. She knows she'll hate herself tomorrow, but she'd rather live with the regret of saying yes than saying no.
Rating: NC-17
Length: 3107 words
Warnings: Adultery, Cross-gen
The structure of this fic is really interesting, I liked starting mid affair and working backward through the guilt and denial to the very moment of that first spark.

Draco and Mirror by [livejournal.com profile] mizorekibishi Draco [WS]

We are Who We Are by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [WS]

Into You by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NWS]
Summary: Draco has nightmares, and Harry is the only thing that helps.

The Field Experiment by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NWS]
Summary: Hermione has a hypothesis: Harry and Draco would make the 'purr-fect' couple.

The Business of Shagging Harry by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco
Summary: Draco is an elite purveyor of adult wizarding entertainment. When a fake memory of Harry Potter in flagrante delicto becomes a sensation, Draco sees an opportunity to make a killing — if only he can get his hands on a real one. Problem is, no one is giving up the goods. What's a self-respecting pornographer to do?
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~15,000
This is hot and fabulous. Loved this Harry - UNF! so delish. And the idea of memory splicing being a fine art used in pornography... pretty brilliant. And something I could see Draco mastering. Very entertaining (and DAMN HOT) fic.

Chasing After Impossibility by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco
Summary: Quidditch is the only thing keeping Harry sane these days. It seems to be working for Draco as well.
Rating: R
Word Count: 6014
This is a lovely 8th year fic that captures the confusion and disorientation of both Harry and Draco after the war. And how sometimes it’s easiest to understand each other when you are both lost.

Summary: Harry’s looking for somewhere he belongs; what he finds is Draco.
Rating: NC-17/Hard R

I have such a soft spot for unusual careers fic. This is a fun read, with some great moments of Draco and Harry dancing around each other.

This is a lovely fic, easy reading and a clever little plot. Lots of flirting and UST between the boys as they are forced to work together to solve a case, and there was just a sprinkle of kink to make my world go round. Great read.

Don't forget! [livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest opens prompting tomorrow!

I will mark which must be mine by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: Harry makes his move during a Quidditch match, when they're high enough that they're in the warmth of the setting sun and, more importantly, WELL beyond the range of even the best Omnioculars. Draco has not yet had enough time to figure out how he feels about this development, but he's doing all right so far. Title is a line from Edna St Vincent Millay's Afternoon on a Hill.
Rating: G

Behind Closed Doors by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays

Summary: Sometimes even aurors need to unwind.
Rating: NC17

Party of Two by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: Drinking, sex, and a total misreading of the concept of fuck buddies.
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): Unabashed alcohol abuse. Oh, and for some reason, Draco is a tailor. idek.
Epilogue compliant? Oh, no. I would say definitely not.
Word Count: ~13,600
This fic is so much fun to read. It’s funny and sexy and the drunk silly boys are pretty much adorable. Had a smile on my face the whole fic, a pleasure to read.

Such a lovely piece to kick off the fest! This artist has a gorgeous style, beautifully done and very romantic.

Humbug (A Christmas Tale) by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco. (With implied Draco/other men; implied past Harry/Cho; and brief, future, imagined but not-real Harry/Charlie.)
Summary: Draco has been taking his casual relationship with Harry for granted. Visits from four key ghosts the night before Christmas just might shake up his priorities in life.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~30,000
This is an AMAZINGLY WELL DONE adaptation of A Christmas Carol. And I say adaptation because, to me, it’s an important distinction from a ‘re-telling’. I love how this is not HP characters squished into Dickens’ tale but the concept of the tale adapted to the HP world. It has a great cast of characters and charming scenes from the past, present and future – but the underlying story is Harry and Draco’s love story, and how Draco must change himself in order to accept the love he is being offered. It’s really beautifully done, Charles Dickens would be proud though I bet the EXTREMELY HOT sex scenes would have made him blush.
