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 is the Queen's Appointed Unicorn Caretaker in the Forest of Dean, and is therefore obligated to take care of every living thing in the forest. That also means cursed Saviours...right?
Content/Warning(s): Brief description of animal death,

This is just utterly lovely. As the summary says, Draco's appointed Unicorn Caretaker in the Forest of Dean, and this one day a (completely delightful!) unicorn named Bob fetches Draco because there's someone hurt in the forest. That person is Harry, who has been cursed blind, and more so, he doesn't remember who he is, who his friends are, and while it's clear he knows he's been cursed, his curse also stop him from even explaining that in the first place.

Draco takes him in, he tends his wounds (Draco is a vet! <3) as best he can, and Harry, not knowing who he is, asks to stay with Draco until he's more sure of himself, figure out some things out. Harry has been missing, Draco knows this, and tells Harry as much, but Harry insists on staying for a while. And in that time they start knowing each other, truly getting to know each other, and it's just lovely and magical. It doesn't come without a bit of complications, and there's also the curse to solve, but happy ending is happy. :)

Summary: Draco Malfoy wouldn't go back to England for anything less than an exceptional case. Being asked to figure out why Harry Potter can't control his magic might be exceptional enough to qualify.
Content/Warning(s): magical disability and the diagnosis and treatment thereof [see more at the post]

This fic, wow, well, it's epic. :D

Draco is a biomagicolost, he specialises in magical implants as a tool for biomagical stabilisation in ill wizards (this is actually from the fic, and wow, doesn't it sound so interesting??). He's been living in France since after the war, quite happy, but now the Ministry is requiring his services for a very delicate and special case: Harry Potter.

This is how we learn that Harry's been on treatment back at home with a team of Unspeakables, Hermione among them. But what they tried on Harry didn't work as they predicted and now Draco is pretty much the best (and only) option to help and cure Harry, who right now can't perform magic without being a danger to others and himself. And bear in mind Harry is a high profile individual in which many Ministry affairs rely on.

Finally Draco agrees to treat him and he comes back home. A home he shares with Pansy and Greg, and now also one Harry Potter.

It's brilliant to see Draco studying Harry's case, finding a patter and a treatment for Harry, and more so, seeing realise that maybe Harry's problems aren't only physical.

You have to read it because I'm kind of doing a bad job at explaining properly how so very cool and brilliant this fic truly is. ^^

Content/Warning(s): Blood, language

This fic is very interesting and intriguing. Draco, presumed dead for years, is found in a warehouse surrounded by dead people, who apparently he killed. Ron found him and, realising how delicate the situation is asks, Harry, who is a Healer, to treat Draco, whom, we latter learn, is malnourished and can't talk, has been experimented and tortured.

As the story develops we begin to understand the whos and the whys, while Harry, who is the only person Draco trusts, helps him.

As I said, very intriguing!

Summary: Draco's life after the war is quite different than it used to be. When he finds himself cursed, with little hope for lifting the spell, he sets out to make the most of the time he has left. Getting to know his Aunt Andromeda and his young cousin Teddy feels like a good thing to do, even if it can't help him in the long run...or can it?

This fic, oh god, so wonderful! The thing is, well, as the summary says, Draco's been cursed, the nature of the curse it was to prove that no one could ever love Draco, and he would die – waste away – in a determined amount of time unless someone fell in love with him.

And you know, at first he tries to find someone who would love him, in his own way, he did try, but soon enough he gives up and tries to make the best of the time he has. He wants to reconnect with his family, and this means Andromeda and Teddy, and of course, Harry is always there. And oh my god, you can tell where this is going yeah?

Yep. I'm not going to say anything else. Wait, actually I am going to say more, because Draco meeting Teddy and spending time with him and Andromeda and Harry and the people who matter to them because he cares about them is just so sweet and wonderful. :) But yeah, that's all I'm going to say.

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.

This is a remix of Comfort (which you ought to read first), which is beautiful, it's a AU after HBP, in which Draco's staying at Grimmauld Place as the war unfolds, finding, indeed, comfort, from an unlikely source. It's touching and gorgeous.

Safety takes place after that, I really don't want to spoil it, but yes, there's Main Character Death, it's heart-breaking but so touching, too. You see Draco thinking back to what comfort versus safety meant back then, how now there's safety but so little comfort, not the way there used to be. But there's also healing, and companionship. Beautiful.

Summary: Chaos: when the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future. One gene varies, one neuron fires, one butterfly flaps its wings, and Draco Malfoy's life is completely different. Draco has always found a certain comfort in chaos. Perhaps he shouldn't.
Content/Warning(s): Magical AU (canon divergence), Genius Draco, kidnapping, torture, gore (see more at story, please!)

This story is so, so amazing.

It's AU, Ravenclaw!Draco, genius!Draco (and if you're anything like me, you're going to fall in love with him and his mind), in which he changes history as we know it when in first year it's him two ventures past the locked door in the third floor. He meets Harry, but even before he realises he's met him, he feels such a fierce protectiveness towards Harry, which is amazing.

Harry becomes Draco's first friend, and seeing this happening; their friendship turning into something so much more it's so sweet and so lovely. There are all these beautiful moments, there's UST but it's so much more than that, it's about love, you know?

There's mentor!Snape (to both Harry and Draco), but there's also danger coming, because Voldemort is coming back, that's no different, in fact, it's more terrible than ever.

I'm going to cut here in case you want to read it without knowing a little more.

Draco does incredible things to protect Harry, and it's while trying to save him that he's trapped and tortured when he takes Harry's place in the Thrid Task in the Triwizard Tournament.

I know some of these tags and warnings [in the fic] can be scary, but it's such a great story. Something to note is that the ~scary part~ doesn't begin until roughly half the story, and when it's about to start, you're warned, and if you want to skip it, the author has written a guide of what happens during the harder-to-read chapters and tells you in which chapter you can keep reading without having missed anything relevant to the plot, however, after having read it, I can tell you that the gory parts, the torture parts, aren't really that long, as in, while Draco spends part of the time under the Imperius, the graphic descriptions of the torture (and all he's forced to do) doesn't expand to the rest of the story, only a few chapters.

It's really a story of love and sacrifices, at times it's hard to read (previously mentioned) but the ending is so beautiful, it's worth it. Brilliant.

Summary: Harry rescues Draco Malfoy from Azkaban, where he has been imprisoned for three years after the war. Draco is not as Harry remembers, as Azkaban leaves its mark on even the strongest of wizards. With no memory of who he was or how he came to be in Harry's care, Draco needs Harry's help if he is to have any hope of making a full recovery. But Harry has his own demons to fight and together with saving Draco, Harry must also discover a way to find himself.
Content/Warning(s): Mildly Dubious Consent

This is such a beautiful story. Gosh, it's going to take you in a rollercoaster of emotions.

As the summary says, the story is about Harry saving Draco from Azkaban, who instead of being there the one year he was supposed, he was imprisoned for three years and placed in complete isolation. And from then on, we live with both Harry and Draco the hard road to recovery, because, again, as the summary says, Draco has lost all his memories, he's locked himself in a place in his mind he feels safe, and leaving the comfort of his cell and his routine is traumatising.

In one hand we have Draco trying to cope with these changes, all these little mechanisms that help him (OCDs), and little by little, he start reacting to Harry. And then we have Harry, trying to hard to do well by Draco, to help him, find him treatment, comfort him, and working through his own issues as well -- for Harry is something of a recluse himself, and ultimately falling in love.

And the thing is, them falling in love with each other seems it's happening from the beginning, because they find comfort in each other. It's hard for Harry, because Draco doesn't remember anything, and then it's harder still when Draco finally does.

But don't worry. It's beautiful, it's gorgeous, see them healing together and apart, it's such a beautiful ride, painful at moment, but worth every second.

This story has beautiful illustrations by [ profile] iwao. Most are safe for work, though there are a couple of steamy one that you're just going to love, but every single one gorgeous and make this story even more beautiful.

This is such a lovely story. You see, someone plays a joke on Draco, and although it's innocent enough (the joke) it kind of gets him arrested, and now, to make sure that ~Malfoy~ is not a threat he's supposed to be supervised for a while, and who better to do the supervising than one Harry Potter, yes? But Draco is pleased with the outcome, because what better way to get over his infatuation with the man than spending time with him, right?

It has wonderful characterisations and the pace is amazing, too. Super sweet, fun and entertaining. :)

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

Summary: Draco is content with his Snitches, with the tap tap tap of his hammer, and the tiny gears and sharp scent of metal in his workshop - until one day Harry Potter appears, asking for help to solve a rash of Snitch-tampering in the Quidditch world.

This is such a lovely story. It's almost peaceful, the way it's written. Such a lovely pace.

You see, there's Draco who is a Snitch maker, and he lives a quiet, peaceful, simple life. Valuable, of course, but a quiet life; he makes his Snitches, he loves his work, he takes pride on it. And then there's Harry, no longer an Auror, who works on a Ministry division to promote Quidditch asking for his help because apparently someone has been tampering Snitches.

He really doesn't suspect Draco, he really wants his help, but it's as Harry and Draco work together, investigate together, that something between them happens; change. It's written from Draco's POV, and it's beautiful, to see Harry through his eyes, to learn Draco's thoughts, feelings, see this thing between them happening. Yeah, its lovely. :)

There are all sorts of ~feelings~ growing while they're on their own, but then when the attackers (Master minds, actually, these guys are evil) kidnap Harry, Draco comes to the rescue, and those feelings sort of explode, on in a very bad moment for Harry.

But don't worry, the right moments comes soon. It's very exciting, the plot is very good, and Harry and Draco Auror partnership really works very well. Oh, and as a bonus, there's portrait!Snape giving Harry "the talk", which, is just awesome, yes? Very good!

This story is so great. As the summary says, Draco has disappeared from the wizarding world, and Narcissa has made it sound as if he's in some kind of trouble because he doesn't have his wand, the one Harry kept. And you know, Harry, he can't help himself, he goes finding Draco.

Only when he finds him, it's nothing like he expected it to be. Draco is still prickly and basically a huge git, but he's living like a Muggle, one that has no idea how to live like a Muggle, and of course Harry can't let it be. He needs to find out why, and he won't leave Draco alone until he finds out, and maybe not even then. It's really so very good, and funny, too, Draco trying to live like a Muggle is awesome. ^^

I love stories when Harry and Draco are kind of broken after the war. It's something I can't get enough of.

In this fic it's been many years after the war, Draco is an organ tuner, a really good one, and Harry, well, Harry is trying to find his own path. But you see, Harry is still having problems coping with life post-war, and amazingly enough, it's Draco, with all of his own problems, the only person who seems can get to him.

I loved the complex characterisations of both Harry and Draco, the unexpected friendships and revelations. It just keeps surprising you, you know? It's a lovely read.

Summary: What happens when someone you hate needs you more than anything else? When it's life or death, either battle to the end, or die trying.

This fic just got back on line after the author had taken off, which is all kinds of awesome because it's really incredible. Harry is afflicted by a mysterious disease that keeps weakening him to the point he can't move, Draco becomes his Healer and full-time carer. And it couldn't have happened in a worst moment in Harry's life; he just found out Ginny has been cheating on him for months just a few weeks before their weeding, and the Weasleys side with her (there is some Weasley bashing on his fic).

One of the things that make this story so beautiful is the slow development of the characters. Harry's gradual acceptance of his condition and everything he goes through, his feelings and thoughts, there are scenes that will bring tears to your eyes, but many that will make you smile, the way he starts seeing Draco beyond what Draco shows to the world and Harry's own awareness of himself changes. And there's Draco, who is very stoic at first, but his perception of Harry changes as he takes care of him, he comes to admire Harry's strength and vulnerability and becomes extremely protective of Harry, making him the center of his own universe.

Narcissa eventually becomes a huge support for both of them, and she's lovely written, too.

It's such a beautiful, slow paced story, with a lot of character development and intense feelings. You're lucky it's back on line, don't miss the chance to read it.

This story is mostly bottom Harry, though they switch a couple of times.

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.

When one Deacon Malloy moves in down the street, Harry discovers that both he and his friends were right. Draco’s alive, but is he still Draco? Harry is sure of one thing: their bond is true. All that remains is to convince his husband.

This is such a beautiful memory loss story (my favourite).

Draco disappeared after going on a mission, but Harry knows he's alive through the bond him and Draco had, and now, five years later when a Deacon Malloy turns on Harry's doorstep he'll have a second chance; to fall in love with the man Draco became in these fives years, and to find his husband again.

It's beautiful and sweet, and just the right touch of angsty, seeing Draco and knowing he doesn't remember Harry or their son, but knowing he feels so drawn to him and Scorpius, this connection between them, and finally accepting: It's about that, accepting that things are different now, and they might never be exactly as they were, but they are together, and at the end, that's what matters.

It's a lovely love story about second chances that you shouldn't miss.

I don't know if I'm making this story justice with this description, because it's absolutely beautiful. Draco's devotion while Harry is sick, his selfless dedication becomes Harry's strength through his fight with cancer.

Beautiful, touching, sweet, sad at times, but lovely all around. An excellent read of Hurt/Comfort at its finest.

Title: I Love You

Summary: Harry knows what love is. It’s something that grows. Something that adapts. Something that sometimes needs a little help along the way.
Warning(s): dark!Harry, non-con

I loved this twisted plot.

You see, in the course of an investigation Harry and his partner discover a potion, something akin to a love potion, which makes the drinker not just to feel as if they are in love, but also anticipate the wants and needs of who gave it to them, only this potion not only affects the drinker, but also who provides the potion as well.

Now Harry has always hated Draco, though he admits an attraction to him, but when Harry makes a pass at Draco, he rejects Harry, and Harry thinks it's a suitable revenge to make Draco want him as much as he wants Draco and uses this potion on him.

Only one time isn't enough, or two or three.

But you see, it's not that Harry is evil or dark without rhyme or reason, at first he just wanted for Draco to feel like he felt when Draco rejected him, but then the potion affected him too without him being aware of it. Which is part of what makes this story so deliciously twisted.

Summary: After Draco is paralyzed in an accident, he and Harry discover a new way to make love.
Warning(s): Watersports (but please read more about this warning on the author's note).

I cannot believe I haven't recced this story before, because it's one of my absolute favourite fics in the whole world.

It's not only hot as hell, it's so emotional and intense as well.

After a one-night stand, which Harry believed to be more, Draco reveals he's getting married. Harry never quite forgot his night with Draco, but life went on. Then one day Draco has an accident, which Harry witnessed, and Draco's wife and unborn child died. Draco after seeing Harry there blames him, and that's when Harry truly decided to move on with his life.

But a while after Draco sends Harry an Owl asking him to meet, just to talk. Harry agrees and discovers he was never past Draco as he thought. From then on they discover together new ways to be together, to love and make love.

This is such a superficial description of such an amazing story. If you're squicked by watersports or think you are, I assure this story is nothing like you're thinking, it will surprise you in its tenderness and how insanely hot it is. This author even admitted this might be the hottest thing she ever wrote, and if you know her you know what she means.

It's a pleasure to read in every way.

Summary: Life threatening injuries are an occupational hazard even for a seasoned Auror, but Harry Potter never considered the possibility of life altering injury. And why is it that Draco Malfoy has to be the one to help him?

This is such a lovely hurt/comfort story.

Harry was injured in the line of duty and he's lost the use of his wand hand. Draco specialises on this therapy and helps Harry, not only on a physical level but on an emotional level as well.

Your heart will ache for Harry, because he's trying so hard, but Draco is there for him, pushing him in all the right ways yet at the same time being the comfort Harry needs. Really lovely the way this author always delivers.

Summary: “Where are you headed?” - “No place special,” Draco fumbled, and flushed further. But then: “I can change that,” said Harry Potter.

This is an adaptation of Queer as Folk, but I'm going to tell right upfront; I have never seen a single episode of this show in my life.

However, this fic is outstanding on its own! Because it's a story. It's a story about people, their problems and how they face them, these issues they have. The way the war changed them and how they suffered and continue to suffer the consequences, but in such an emotional level. It's a story about growth, too. Because as it develops they have to face changes. Both Harry and Draco; they aren't perfect by a long shot, but in their own way are trying so hard to cope.

Draco's characterisation is beautiful. After this thing, fling, relationship, with Harry started he always knew where he stood with him. He didn't have any delusions, he dreamt and hoped, it's true, but he never became a deluded person living for someone else, which I absolutely loved.

And there's Harry, who for all he is and puts his friends and loved ones through, you will love him, too. You will try to understand him and see beyond what he's trying to show you.

The whole supporting cast is incredible. Ginny, Astoria, Hermione, Ron, Molly! Oh, Molly. No, seriously, all of them are lovely written.

And you know what else? The sex; good God, the sex is steamy, dirty, loving, hot, intense and so much more.

It's a journey, of two young men finding their way in the world, flawed, perfect and confused, but trying.

Summary: Harry is trapped in a cell, but Draco is trapped somewhere far worse.

These are a couple of stunning stories. Harry is being tortured by an Imperiused Draco.

Dark, twisted, a little bit disturbing and very hot.

Summary: Harry and Draco try to find the perfect Christmas gift for each other, despite having little in the world to call their own.

There's such an air of melancholy about this story.

Harry and Draco are living together after the war, in a world that stripped Draco of his magic, and Harry gave up his to be with him.

But it's about about love, too, because regardless of everything they might have lost, being together is all they really need. Lovely.

Summary: Harry Potter was convinced he had an ordinary, if inconvenient, life. Then Ron and Hermione vanished in the Department of Mysteries. And the only person who may know where they are is a mute Draco Malfoy.
Warning(s): Horror, violence, gore, torture, profanity.

This story is a classic in this gender. It's not an easy read, because it's very dark.

Ron and Hermione vanished into the Department of Mysteries, and when Harry goes searching for them he sees the whole department has turned into a cave. He encounters a mute and scarred Draco Malfoy, who becomes his only companion while facing the horrors within the maze.

But this story is not only about that darkness, it's about this fierce protectiveness towards one another, because they need and cling to each other to survive, and while walking through the maze they forge a bond that can never be broken. And all through his Harry is constantly warring with himself, with his newly discovered sexuality and all the feelings he starts having for Draco. It's very intense in that sense, too.
