Summary: Potter was leaning against the doorframe, feet bare, jeans low on his hips, ear pierced, nose red from the cold.
He was smirking as if the sole purpose of his existence was to drive Draco crazy.
// In which the eighth years spend the holidays in a French ski resort and Draco comes to terms with his feelings.

This story is just soooo cute. I'm telling you, having the 8th years taking a ~Muggle~ Holiday was the best idea ever. \o/

The story starts when the whole group goes skiing and Harry and Draco end up alone during the first activity and apparently Harry's behind is very distracting for Draco. *nods* There's plenty of flirting and UST, board games, dares. . . Draco with a man bun (omg!) and—well, having all that UST eventually resolved. ;) Very fluffy, and lots of fun! :)

It's hilarious! I'm telling you, Draco's voice is perfect here. He talks about what people are wearing and about being attacked by flowers and of course, Harry. It almost makes no sense only it makes perfect sense. Awesome! :D

Summary: In which you'll find the Italian sun, some sexual tension, a reluctant Harry and a persuasive Draco.
Content/Warning(s): slightly AU post HBP.

This story is amazing! Just amazing. It's a Post War fic, in which Harry, in dire need of a break after the war, finds solace in Vernazza. He's been living there for a while; a happy, peaceful life, until this one day Draco – who is Head Auror by the way! – shows up and he's determined to persuade Harry to come back.

The characterisations are wonderful. We get to see Harry's life, his routine (he works at a Gelateria and swims naked every day in the ocean!!!!11!!!1) and he see Draco coming and knocking everything skew and being utterly charming and sexy while he does that. Not to mention, yeah, persuasive.

And oh my god, there's so much sexual tension between these two. It's pretty amazing, fun, witty and just wonderful.

Summary: Seven years out from the war, Harry learns the hard truth of old history: it’s never quite as far behind you as you thought.

This story is simply gorgeous. It's beautiful and Harry and Draco's characterisations are amazing.

The story starts when a very distressed Kreacher shows up crying that Grimmauld Place and its new Master are being attacked. Harry had sold Grimmauld Place after the war, unknowingly to him, Draco had bought it and turned it into The Modern Museum of Wizarding History, and now that it's been attacked (along with Draco), Harry as the previous master of the house is called for aid. Being an Auror of course he goes to help, but the attackers escape and now he has to deal with Draco and some children who were visiting the Museum for the day.

That's how it starts, but, god, there's so much more than that, because Harry is really unhappy, he thinks he's doing OK but slowly starts realising how unhappy he truly is, how much more he could have, and Draco starts being there for him, because the attacks continue on Grimmauld Place and Draco, and Harry protects them, then slowly realising all these feelings he has for Draco (so, so slowly and then all of the sudden and—) and it's gorgeous, truly, this journey of discovery, this journey to happiness. And again, the characterisations are so rich and fun and deep, of Harry and Draco, Ron and Hermione, Blaise, Pansy, even Kreacher. It's amazing, this story.

Summary: Harry been prepared for things to go poorly with Draco Malfoy as his assigned partner for the next six weeks of Auror training, but getting themselves accidentally bonded to each other in the first twenty minutes of their very first assignment seemed going above and beyond, even for them.

Bonding fic! \o/ And yep, like the summary says, right after being assigned to partners and in their very first mission, one that should have been quite easy, they end up bonded. :D After a brief ~debate about how they are going to handle being bonded, Harry moves in to Draco's flat and at first it seems it's going to be okay, but then—actually, I'm going to leave you with a little quote:

Because Malfoy was an attractive person, Harry couldn’t deny that. He’d known for years that Malfoy was exactly his type. But for years that knowledge had only remained an idle observation because Malfoy was horrible and it was really hard to be properly attracted to someone when you also wanted to punch them in their stupid pointy nose all the time. But this Malfoy? Who was still a little sleepy and still a little rumpled, warm and loose and relaxed and for once not being a total arse?

Yeah. Harry could already see this was going to be a problem.

!!! So wonderful! :D

Summary: The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry's suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy's hoodie because seriously Hermione who gave that to him and is he wearing it just to torment me? This is ridiculous!

This fic, well, it's basically the cutest thing ever. Like it says in the summary, Harry's trying to have a normal year at Hogwarts, worry only about his classes and homework and Quidditch, but if we're talking about normal for Harry, naturally that means being obsessed about Draco. I mean, obviously.

What's Draco doing? Well, he's wearing a Hufflepuff hoodie. And it's awesome, this hoodie; it's got badgers on the sleeves and a bit 'Hufflepride' emblazoned on the back and he's wearing it all the time, and Harry's dying to know why. He has all these crazy theories, and what's worse (and by "worse" I mean better!) he, Draco, knows he's driving Harry crazy. But that's not all either, he's being friendly to other Houses, hanging out with Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws alike and yeah, Harry needs to know what's the deal.

And the road to Harry unravelling the mystery of Draco's hoodie is completely awesome and hilarious, losing, well, 1,000 points in the process, but also gaining so much more. :D

There's something super enchanting about Fantasy and Royal AUs.

Only Ron comes to see the negotiations and with him he brings his newly-hired Master of the Horse, one Harry Potter, who absolutely captures Draco's attention. Though they fight and antagonise each other, they attraction can't be denied, especially when Harry sees how much Draco cares of hi beautiful stallion (not in that way, come on lol), and he loves seeing that softer side of Draco.

Summary: Draco Malfoy struggles with changed fortunes, shifted alliances, an ugly war, and an unusual spell, with the help of a concerned professor, an insightful house-elf, and an unexpected Gryffindor friend.
Content/Warning(s): Canon divergence (AU) after OotP.

I cannot believe I hadn't recced this before, because it's really amazing and definitely one of my favourites.

It's an AU after Order of the Phoenix, in which Draco is a spy for the Order and starts training with Snape for when the time comes. It's not linear, because the story starts when the war is over and won and Draco's facing Lucius's death.

It has different POVs, and all brilliant. We got to see the development of Dean and Draco's friendship after the war (Dean is so, so awesome! But so is Seamus!), after Draco saved Dean and Seamus, we get Draco's POV and even Snape's POV. It's very complex and rich in characterisations.

The heart of it is, we learn that back when Harry and Draco were at Hogwarts, before the war broke, Lucius cast a spell on Harry that would trigger after his death. This spell would make Harry every evening to insult and abuse his friends (verbally) until exhaustion, and if left alone he'd be a danger to himself. Draco witnessed Lucius casting the spell, but during the war, and even after the war, dealing with the Ministry and the aftermath - because even though he was cleared as an ally of the Light, people still don't trust a Malfoy - he forgot, and it’s not until Dean mentions Harry's having a hard that he remembers, sees the effect of Lucius's curse first hand, and he's faced with a choice. He could break the spell, but he could also lose everything, for to break the spell he needs to make a Vow of Silence.

It's fantastic, this fic. The way Draco is there for Harry through these 'cursed' evenings, the way he see the story (past and present) unfold, the way Draco changes with time, friendships made, and Harry's growing need for Draco, it's all so very good, man! Read it if you haven't, and you know, if have, read it again because it's truly brilliant. :D

Summary: Blaise was immune to whatever it was people usually felt around his mother, for which he was profoundly grateful, since no one needed an Oedipal complex on quite that spectacular a scale, but that didn’t mean he didn’t have a thorough respect for her gift.
Content/Warning(s): Canon Divergence (AU, post OotP)

Oh my god, this story is so, so good! It's written from Blaise's POV, and it starts at the end of OotP, when Blaise's mum realises Draco is special. He's an erosmancer, which means Draco is in great danger staying in Voldemort's side. What being an erosmancer means to Draco is, aside from the sexual power he'll have, he can store wizards and witches's powers, and then give it to someone else, ideally his bonded one, but it's obvious that Voldemort won't ask nicely, so his best bet is going to Dumbledore, which he does, and Mrs Zabini starts training him.

Like I said, ideally Draco should bond – and you know where this is going, right? XD

It's really cool! Not only there's some pretty nifty Erosmancy lore that we learn while Draco trains, Harry and Draco's reaction to each other, the way they resist (and fight!) is, well, explosive to say the least. Very intense and super interesting. Also, Blaise, you know? :D

Blaise, smart chap he is, pretty quickly realises what's going on, and unintentionally ends up being witness to some flirting, some sexy times, and even fighting. And through all this Draco is trying to pretend he's not shagging Harry.

This story is so sweet and gentle. It's about Harry being a bit adrift after the war and being sort of adopted by Andromeda, unofficially, moving in with her and Teddy and just finding his place in life, what he wants to be. Finding a family.

And of course, that family eventually includes Narcissa and Draco who visit often. Harry and Draco's interactions are so sweet, their friendship and relationship so lovely paced. This definitely a feel-good story. :)

Summary: His house liked Draco Malfoy more than him.

As the summary says, Harry's house likes Draco more than it likes him. But you know, Harry does have conflicted/negative feelings about Grimmauld Place, why wouldn't his house have conflicted feel the same way about him, right?

And there's room for this to be funny, and there are funny moments; the house pretty much flourishes when Draco is around, but it's all sad, daunting and decay for Harry, which ultimately leads to Harry and Draco being trapped inside the house. And yet, at the same time we understand how and why Harry feels this way about his Grimmauld Place, there are wonderful insights into Harry's character here:

“It was a mess when I first got here! I didn’t know what it could be like, I didn’t grow up with a manor and a house elf looking after me. And then you swanned in and the place just fell over itself to make clear I was—second-rate,” Harry said, but the word that had really wanted to come out at the end was unwanted, some useless hateful freakish thing left on the doorstep, only to be shoved in a dingy corner—under the stairs—and ignored as much as possible. He swallowed.

We also get to see Harry, with Draco's help, working very, very hard to make Grimmauld Place his own, and the result is wonderful. :)

God, this story is so amazing, such a surprise! I really didn't know what to expect of a fic in which Harry has to spend half his holiday with the Dursleys and the rest with the Malfoys. I mean, from one shitty situation to a shitter one, right?

Only once I started reading I realised Harry and Draco are somehow bonded (unwillingly) and can't be away from each other.

So! They go to the Dursleys first and Uncle Vernon starts at them telling them how he doesn't want "any funny business" and basically being his charming self, only I completely forgot Draco. He reacts in the perfect way! Oh my god, telling Uncle Vernon stuff like: “Listen very carefully, worm,” he said through his teeth. “I don’t know what sort of behavior Potter lets you get away with, but I am not a pathetic Muggle-loving excuse of a wizard. Which is pretty damn awesome, come on, aren't you laughing yet?

It was brilliant, and Draco's so snarky through it. Then they go to the Malfoys and things get complicated there, the see the bond evolving, we see their feelings for each other evolving. Pretty brilliant, this fic.

This story was such a joy to read. Harry and the rest of the 7th and 8th year students are to be re-sorted, and Harry, who was not happy about this at all, goes first.

It turns out, he ends up a Hufflepuff. :D But so end up a few other familiar faces, including one Draco Malfoy. Harry is actually quite content to end up a Hufflepuff, and is determined to learn Draco's Huffflepuffian side, too. (Naturally.)

But you have to read, how wonderful this author wrote this house, its values and secrets and ritual and what an amazing House this is.

But that's not all, as a project Neville discovers magic is leaving the land, and soon the veils protecting magical dwellings, cities are going to fail and the magical world will be exposed and the House of Hufflepuff will be fundamental to fix it.

That's what this story is about, but more so, it comes with amazing characterisations and descriptions and moments that are touching, endearing, emotional and amazing fun. Read it! :D

He sees Harry, apparently living a perfect, happy life, but Draco knows it's all for show, he sees the hints of sorrow and loneliness. And it's not until he discovers something very off about his marriage to Ginny that he finally approaches Harry.

Harry, realising Draco knows what's going on, opens up to him, tells him the truth about him and Ginny, about himself, and they start meeting, talking, being friends. But there's more than friendship, no matter how they try to pretend otherwise, their mutual attraction (and obsession!) cannot be ignored.

Summary: The year is 2078, Harry and Draco are both 98, an age to be proud of even for wizarding kind. Pride, though, is not on either man's mind, as they meet at Geezers Old Folks' Hotel shortly before the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts.
Content/Warning(s): Epilogue Compliant

This story is gorgeous. It's Epilogue Compliant, Harry and Draco are [much] older, still young for wizarding life-span, and the story starts when Draco moves in to the place Harry's living.

The characterisations are beautiful, the way we learn a bit about their back stories is both familiar and refreshing, such a different view and take of what their lives have been. And now they meet again, slightly aged, more mature but still, there's a comfort about their ever present antagonism until it becomes something else, comfort and more. Truly lovely.

Summary: Harry had spent the first years after the war waiting and trying to fall in love with Ginny and had been unable to. It had turned out all right, sort of. Ginny had settled down with the Harpies’ Seeker and Harry, well, Harry had Draco. Sometimes.

This story is so interesting and intriguing, and it's emotional too.

Harry and Draco have this relationship of sorts, if it can be called that. They are together, but they aren't really together. Harry is never sure where he stands with Draco, because he comes and goes, and they fight and then they are good. And at the same time, Harry was just promoted to Head Auror after the previous Head Auror was murdered, and he's being subtly threatened, spied on by someone who's sending him photos of himself and his friends. There's also a cat. And there's Ginny who is amazing. :D

It's really very cool, how everything comes together at the end. Very engaging.
