Summary: There's usually a better time and place to participate in seduction than the Forbidden Forest. Unless, of course, it's Mating Season. // In which Draco is sneaky but not sneaky enough, Harry is confident but goes a bit mad, and the Trees are either incredibly romantic or just sort of perverts.
Content/Warning(s): Face-fucking, hung!Harry, rimming

This is an absolutely delicious story, a very loose retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and let me tell you, at one point Harry's wearing his red clock and carrying a basket (later with flowers) and it's basically the best thing ever. It'll all make sense, I promise! :D

It starts with Draco being in the forbidden forest, picking up Potions ingredients (he's doing his Potions fellowship at Hogwarts) and in comes Harry in search of some magic flowers. Of course Draco is also very interested in these magic flowers Harry's after. And that they are both super attracted to each other, well, that helps, too. Helps a lot, actually, so much UST!

Then – god, you should just read it because then Draco's obviously hiding something and obviously Harry's got to see what it is and then there's hung!Harry and Draco gets sneezed on by a flower and goes mad with lust and – yeah, it's crazy and amazing. :D

Summary: When Harry sustains an injury in the line of work, he no longer knows how to navigate the life he loved, and finds help and solace from the most unexpected source.
Content/Warning(s): Physical disability, angst, depression, anger, healing, hurt/comfort, Auror Harry, Healer Draco, dubious medical ethics, romance, domesticity, falling in love, EWE, anal fingering, anal sex, rimming, bottoming from the top, oral sex.

This story is fantastic. Seriously. It's incredibly touching and beautiful. As the summary says, Harry is injured during an Auror raid and now the life he loved, the life he enjoyed, the life he dreamt for himself is no longer possible, at least that's what he thinks.

He sinks in to a deep depression and Hermione, desperate to help, seeks Draco, who is now a Healer with also a Muggle degree who specialises in physiotherapy, and he's the best, so really, it is Harry's best and last chance.

Harry doesn't take this news -- that Draco is his new doctor and will be moving in for the duration of his treatment -- very well. Well, that's an understatement. But really, Draco is the best, and soon Harry's progress start to show and little by little they work together, toward maybe giving Harry his life back, to Harry finding himself again.

But of course isn't easy, because it's them, they have a whole history and they fall in love, which is, at the same time amazing and complicated.

It's truly a journey, not just Harry's physical recovery, but also realising he can be and is loved, that he doesn't have to do things alone, that people want to be there for him and it's OK to let them, to forgive them and most important to forgive himself. And Draco, falling in love with this amazing man and being scared of what it means, afraid of all the unethical reasons why their relationship might not work. It's gorgeous, really.

Summary: Draco Malfoy bravely deals with new coffee shops, Harry Potter, low-sympathy coworkers, feelings, free muffins, Looks, and some extremely rude signage.

This fic is absolutely delightful. Harry's opened a coffee shop in Hogsmeade and has the sassiest sign in the world, and it gets in some really funny snarky contests with Draco, who is a teacher at Hogwarts.

Anyway, regardless of the sassy sign, Draco keeps coming back to Harry's Hedwig's Teas and Cozies because, aside from the free muffin Harry keeps giving Draco some Looks. It's hilarious and sweet and Harry and Draco's characterisation (and friendship with Cho and Anthony) are super! :D

Summary: Everyone always forgets about the Merpeople. So did Harry until the day his, Lee’s, and Hermione’s Portkeys land at Reagan National Airport’s Arrivals dais. He’s just had to leave a job he loves and pack his entire life—literally—into his luggage. Then Malfoy and his subplots arrive, and suddenly, saving the world again, one Mermaid at a time, sounds like the perfect excuse to do something he’s always wanted.

This fic is super interesting! It's about how Muggles have been contaminating the waters and basically destroying the Merepeople's habitat.

Harry and Draco come into the picture because, both, blackmailed by the Miniter for Magic, are asked to go to USA to fix the problem. Draco is a Potions Master and Harry is a field chemist who especialices in water.

In the meantime we get to learn a few things about Harry and Draco. A) Harry and Draco had been friendly for quite a while back home. Harry often visiting Draco at Hogwarts where he teaches Potions, thing that stopped once Harry realised he had feelings for Draco, and B) That, related to A, Harry's been pining for Draco for years, basically. :D

The plot is very clever, we get to see everything they do to save the Mers (Harry and Draco each brought a team with them), and try to discover why the Minister wanted them (Harry & Draco) out of the picture back home, there are also some pretty brilliant interaction between Harry and Draco, the team, Draco's American cousin (who is super, too!).

Summary: Post-war Hogwarts has been energized by its new teaching fellows program. Where once bitter enmity divided the wizarding community, Malfoy and Potter chummily patrol hallways together whilst Granger and Zabini seek lost parts of the castle at McGonagall’s behest and Chang supervises Quidditch when not lecturing in Charms. It’s a veritable wizarding utopia and life is predictable for the first time in years. Which is, of course, when everything blows apart as the result of a drunken dare and Malfoy’s life is ruined beyond his capacity to repair it. Ever. In a million years.

Oh god, so much yummy pining in this fic. :D

That story starts with Harry and Draco doing rounds at Hogwarts. They are 'Fellows,' teachers assistants and sort of secondary teachers, if you will, helping their Head of Houses with the students as well. They are friendly, not best of friends, but definitely the sort of friends that have a nice banter going on, but things come to a head when this one night Harry confesses he fancied Draco back in sixth year. This turns Draco's life upside down, and it does so because Draco's always had feelings for Harry, and now they're back with a new fervour. Then things are a bit awkward between them and then less so, and then a lot more awkward after a drunken kiss in a drinking game and—well, let me say it again, there's a lot of pining in this fic. :D

It's from Draco's POV, and his characterisation is wonderful, seeing face his fear, help his students facing theirs, seeing his interactions with his fellow Fellows. Wonderful, all of this is wonderful. Those nearly 40K are going to fly, trust me! :)

Oh my god, this fic is so amazing, I kid you not!

We have Harry and Draco trying this matchmaking service and they are stuck with being set up with each other, over and over and over again even though Draco's doing everything in his power to avoid Harry. :D It's a Magical Matching system, which is the best thing ever, basically. :D

Anyway, so they go on dates and at first is super awkward (and brilliant!) but then all this tension makes itself known – and by 'tension' I mean all the UST!! Until it's undeniable.

Butt here's also all these gorgeous characterisation of both Harry and Draco; Draco is complex and amazing and drives Harry crazy, and Harry's charming and honest and so effing sexy, Draco can't resist him.

Oh, man, this story is so much fun! Harry is trying to take office in the Department of Magical Enforcement, and he's only finding bumps in the way, until it seems he finally will, when someone re-discovers a law that says that any person to be appointed as such needs to have finished his schooling at Hogwarts securing a good opinion of their instructors.

Which means Harry has to go back to Hogwarts, which wouldn't be too bad, really, only the new Potions professor is one Draco Malfoy, and Draco Malfoy will do what he does best. Er, make Harry's life a living hell and sabotage his potions. Oh, and of course, there's all the illicit fucking going around because, of course, somehow Harry makes him think he's seducing him for a good grade.

It's insane and fun and awesome. But there's more, there's the whole problem about the people stopping Harry from taking office, and why, and why Draco is helping them. But trust me, the end is most satisfactory for everyone involved, except perhaps McGonagall. :D

Meanwhile, Draco is stuck in his office, putting together the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe during, when he should be enjoying summer holidays.

This fic was a delight to read. As the summary says Beauxbatons is hosting the first ever Quidditch Summer School, and indeed, Harry decided to enrol Teddy for it. Only when Harry and Andromeda arrive to leave Teddy they find Draco is having a little crisis and the Star Seeker (Viktor Krum) is not going to be able to make it to the camp.

Luckily though, Harry, a former Quidditch player is right there and he might save Draco from a tight stop.

Summary: Thirteen years after Draco accepts Potter's help escaping the horror of his sixth year, he returns to England where he makes the unfortunate discovery that Potter is still as obnoxious as ever. And worse, more than a decade overseas hasn't been enough to dim Draco's obsession with him.

This story is fantastic. It's so emotional, it's such a journey. As the summary tells you, it starts with Draco in sixth year, there's a slight canon divergence, because instead of fulfilling the mission Draco was given and fixing the cabinet that leads to Dumbledore dying in the conditions he did, Harry helps Draco escape, but not before Harry and Draco, affected by a Potion, are together for the first time.

Draco leaves via the Porkey Harry gives him, and now, thirteen years later Draco returns, a successful Auror, a brilliant inventor, ready to join the Magical world again. Only he doesn't expect having to work with Harry so close, he doesn't expect wanting Harry as much as he did that first time – Potion or no Potion – and he doesn't expect things to be so different, that Harry is so different and the same in so many ways.

It's brilliant, truly, the characterisations are wonderful, there are so many funny, awesome moments, so many emotions, they way they start to get to know each other better, oh god, the sexual tension. It's written from Draco's POV, and it's perfect. The sex, their jobs, the mysteries to discover. It's, well, yeah, it's amazing. :D

This is a very entertaining fic. I mean, here we have Draco, who is a tragically bad father. He's not abusive or anything, he's just awful with children and he doesn't seem to get through Scorpius at all.

This story is a joy to read. It's written from Harry's POV and his characterisation is a darling.

Professor McGonagall asked Harry for help because apparently the curse Voldemort put on the Defence Against the Dark Arts post is still in place and she hasn't able to keep a teacher for more than one term, so Harry is to go back to Hogwarts as the new teacher, and at the same time figure out and lift the curse on the position.

What Harry doesn't know though, it's that Draco is the Hogwarts Librarian after Madam Pince's retirement.

I loved how they started getting to know each other, how proper and polite they were with the other, until Harry realised just exactly how hopelessly smitten he was with this new Draco.

Summary: Professor Malfoy's world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.

This story is amazing. It's got Harry and Draco as teachers at Hogwarts. It starts with Harry playing a prank on Draco, turning his eyebrows red, Gryffindor red, in retaliation Draco plays another one on Harry, but this one goes horribly wrong combined with another spell, which leaves Harry immobilised for months. Sort of like a Petrificus Totalus, if you will, and so Draco has to take over Harry's responsibilities, classes and extra obligations.

It's truly amazing, because even though Harry spends much of the story immobile, we get to see Draco change, we learn his frustrations, his vulnerabilities, but we also see him grow, open himself to life and live it, really live it. He visits Harry constantly, he talks him, it's easier while Harry is quiet and still, and Draco, behind this safety of Harry's motionless and silent form, he sort of lets himself go, he talks about his life and fears and new experiences while taking over Harry's duties, but never forgetting about that silent person whom he know is listening.

He falls in love, not just with the idea of Harry he has, because he has got to know Harry as well, as impossible as it sounds he does get to know him, because now that Harry is laying on a bed, motionless it's like Draco can truly see him, beyond all the noise and preconceptions, you know? And when Harry wakes up, their whole dynamic, their relationship, is different. It's fond and full of admiration, and damn it if it's not the sweetest prelude to the love story that it unfolds.

It's very rich in characters and details and scenes that will steal your heart. It's absolutely brilliant. And you're going to love Stanley (Draco's beetle pet) and much as you'll love Harry and Draco.

But when Malfoy is rushed into St Mungos for a psychotic break, Healer-trainee Harry Potter realizes that Malfoy's success is not all what it seems and sometimes luck can have more than one meaning.

This is a lovely story. Draco is a potions' addict, Felix Felicis, of all things, and Harry, Healer in training, is working at St. Mungos, and during his rotation on the addicts' ward, he'll be in charge of Draco's rehabilitation.

This is Draco painful journey to recovery, from his denial to even having a problem to his sad acceptance and finally admitting he needs help. And Harry is there for him, in every step of the way, willing Draco to see he is more than the sum of his mistakes, offering him a second chance.

But it's funny and sweet too, because even though they bicker all the time, they find relief in one another, they truly get to know each other. Draco's vulnerable moments are amazing, and Harry clumsy as he is at these emotional times, always knows what to tell him, how to comfort him.

I love the familiar feel of this story. Harry's problem's with the press, his need for privacy, to start over away from all of it. And then the new problems he faces when he comes back to the wizarding world.

The thing is, Harry is tired of being in the spotlight, so he leaves the magical world, but eventually he misses it, and decides to come back when McGonagall asks him to come back to teach at Hogwarts. He does, but using a Glamour, he didn't count with Draco teaching Potions, and he certainly didn't count falling in love with him.

It's really lovely, the way Harry doesn't want to deceive Draco, and how Draco looks at him when he says something Harry-ish, and the bits that make Harry so mad about the press, those are going to make you laugh.

Summary: Five years after Voldemort's defeat, Harry returns to England to help re-open Hogwarts.

I think I must be the last person on the fandom to have read this story. I honestly can't remember why I haven't before, it's so good!

This story was written before Order of the Phoenix came out, but you'll be surprised how little differences to canon it has. The main ones, I think, are how some characters died, and that Draco was a spy for the Order.

Harry has this angst-ridden attitude, he left the wizarding world right after the war, and now, five years later he's come back to help to re-open Hogwarts. But while doing so they discover Hogwarts is filled with magical mines, targeted to specific people as well as general population, and to "dismantle" these mines, well, it's a huge collective effort, and Harry and Draco are paired to work together.

Draco is incredibly clever here, I really love his superior-yet-(sort of)-friendly attitude, he keeps getting to Harry, pushing and pressing him. The smut is amazingly hot, the intricate twists the plot takes are unbelievable, really (in a good way) and all through this Harry, very slowly, starts to see Draco differently, he's ready to face his fears, the loss of the people he left behind, and his own pain which he's been bottling up for years.

It's outstanding, this story. If you haven't read it, you should read it now. You won't regret it.

This story is really, really entertaining.

The thing is, after many years after Harry leaves England he returns to Hogwarts to teach, he brings with him his son, but there's a story behind it, and Draco very much wants to know it.

I loved how Draco goes from "curious" about Harry, to obsessed, to hopelessly smitten, to finally admit and embrace his protective nature towards Harry.

There are appearances by Snape (it follows HBP canon), which are just funny. Really enjoyable read.

Title: Normal Is the Watchword
Author: [ profile] lamerezouille
Rating: PG 13
Word Count: 30,000 Approx.
Summary: This story is about love and family and yes, maybe it’s not supposed to be about Jamie exactly, but Draco and Harry are very stubborn and Jamie’s just a kid, you can’t expect him to completely extract himself from a story he’s actually living, right?
Warning(s): past Mpreg.

This story is absolutely delightful. It's written from Jamie's POV. Not James Sirius Potter, but Jamie; Harry and Draco's son. Only he doesn't know at first Draco is his other dad. He met him at his first year at Hogwarts, when his magic started fluctuating, particurlarly in Draco's classroom.

But seriously, you're going to fall in love with his story, this kid, and through his eyes you're going to love Harry and Draco and his romantic ideas of bringing his fathers back together.

If after my last rec you need something to make you laugh and smile and cheer you up, this story is it. It's precious.

Title: From the Printers of Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove
Author: [ profile] annafugazzi
Rating: R
Word Count: 17,000
Summary: A random curse leaves Harry and Draco forced to work together again. It's quite all right, though; they can be professionals. It'll be a nice change from the last time they worked together.
Warning(s): Epilogue compliant

This is such a charming story.

Harry was jinxed and he can't talk unless Draco or children are present, which makes it complicated if Harry wants to, well, talk at all. But that's not all; they were married, and got divorced though, really, neither are over the other. And that's not all; there's this book Now That We Are Gaye from the printing house Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove, which presents a series of steps to woo a wizard, and once completed they are married. And still, that's not all; Draco is going through these steps behind Harry's back, well, until Harry learns about it, and, surprisingly (not really!) he's not all adverse to the idea.

And it's funny, entertaining and delightful, truly. You'll enjoy this story.

Title: Draco Malfoy's Worst Christmas Ever (It's All Harry Potter's Fault)
Author: [ profile] coffeejunkii
Rating: PG 13
Word Count: 11,100 Approx.
Summary: All Draco wanted for Christmas was a quiet holiday. But then Harry Potter caught Dragon Pox, Severus Snape's portrait needed a temporary caretaker, and Narcissa Malfoy decided that she would no longer put up with Lucius' newfound love of flobberworms.

Indeed. As the summary says, Draco was really looking forward to a nice and calm holiday, and of course Harry has to get sick, and now he's stuck with taking care of him. And it's horrible. Absolutely Horrible. :D

There's also Portrait!Snape, always a bonus, and most awesome Narcissa. This fic is, not quite 'old', but it's a Christmas Classic that is always lovely to read.
