Patience of the Memory - by skriftlig

Title - Patience of the Memory

Link - https://sites.google.com/site/harrydracorelief/home/patience-of-the-memory

Written for H/D Relief's Japan Fest.

Author - Skriftlig

Rating - NC-17

Word Count - Approx. 20,000

Warnings - NC-17, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Drama

Summary - Harry is a Healer at St. Mungo's. Draco is brought in as a patient.
Tempers flare, emotions flare, can Draco be healed/saved? Plus, there is that pesky
order from the Ministry lurking in the background.

Why I loved it - I enjoy hurt/comfort H/D fictions. I also enjoyed reading how the
relationship between Harry and Draco was volatile, and filled with vitriol, and slowly changed to caring and love. I liked the drama of the story, and appreciated the authors care to make this a well written fiction.

Excerpt: Harry," The Ministry wants you out of St. Mungo's.
Draco, " Good."
Harry, " They want to take you to St. Dickenson's to remove your magic."
The little color in Draco's face vanished.

Summary: What happens at the end of Half Blood Prince.
Told from Draco's point of view. Will eventually be H/D.

Why I loved it: I normally don't like violence or character death. But,
the way the story was written and progressed, I accepted how the author wrote this story.
I like long H/D fictions, and this met all the criteria for me to read such a H/D fiction. Hurt/Comfort, friends to lovers, and a happy ending.

Title: A Certain Kind of Memory remix fanvid
Artist: Micehellwd Illustration
Rating: None but maybe PG/PG-13?
Warnings: [Spoiler (click to open)]Major character death
Additional Notes: may require tissues

Why I loved it: My only squick is H/D Death. Thus, I almost never cry reading fanfic. I avoided A Certain Kind of Memory by jamie2109 like the plague. Then I stumbled across this video, and I swear I was sobbing by the end. Stupidly, I had to go read the story (really quickly), and of course it was as devastating as I had imagined.

Micehellwd Illustration’s lineart and selective use of color are simple but effective in capturing the essence of the original fic. The background music (“Fix You” by Coldplay) and the inspired timing of the animation, though, are what give this video its emotional weight.

Overall, this is a beautiful video remix of a really lovely fic. I recommend keeping something nice and fluffy in your reading queue, though, just in case.

Need artist tag, please.

Why I loved it: I always loved the T.V. show The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
I always was crushing on David McCallum.
The premise for this Drarry story is so outstanding, everything makes sense and falls into place.
I felt as if I was in a pensive, watching everything.
I loved the dialog, the wittiness, the background descriptions, and the descriptions throughout the fiction.
I enjoyed the development of Harry and 'The feared The Drake'.
I was gripping my chair at some parts, with anticipation to see how things would pan out.
This is a well-written, enjoyable, unexpected plot twists story.
You will have fun reading it and will thoroughly enjoy it.
I did.

Title: Making Malfoy Blush

Author: FleetofShippyShips

Rating: Mature

Word Count: 18320

Warnings: None

Summary: Malfoy walks in on Harry in the showers after Quidditch and is surprisingly flustered. Spying the chance to embarrass him, Harry teases him at every opportunity to bring that blush back. It's all harmless winks and lip biting, and maybe a few heated looks; until it's a kiss, and then another, and then Harry realises he never wants to stop. If only Malfoy was as clear about what he wants.

Why I loved it:
There’s snogging in this story. Like, a lot of hot snogging.  Snogging in the corridors. Snogging in the library. Snogging in front of Ron (accidentally).

When Draco catches confident!Harry wanking in the shower after quidditch, Harry starts teasing sexually inexperienced Draco to get a rise out of him. Of course, since this is Draco and Harry, the teasing soon morphs into something more fraught and complex. Draco’s insecurities clash with Harry’s immaturity, and the barriers to them getting together ring true to their canonical characterizations. This not is a story where Harry and Draco immediately jump into bed together, and I appreciate the intimation that both partners should feel comfortable when moving forward in a sexual relationship. FleetofShippyShips does a great job pulling the reader into the emotional ups and downs of adolescent infatuation.

I also love fleetofshippyships’s portrayal of Ron and Hermione. Unlike many Drarry fics where Ron reacts in some negative way to the idea of Harry and Draco dating, here Ron is a perceptive and supportive friend. Likewise, Hermione gives Harry the verbal equivalents of smacks on the head when he needs them. There are also some droll group scenes that highlight how mortifying it can be to start a new relationship when you’re surrounded by your friends 24/7.

This story is the first in a series that follows Harry and Draco as their eighth year (and relationship) progresses, though each can be read as a standalone oneshot.  Unfortunately, due to incivility in the HP fandom, the author does not plan to post any more of her Drarry fanfiction publicly. It is a loss to us all when inconsiderate commenters drive a talented writer off to greener pastures.

Excerpt(optional):
After a few moments, Malfoy kissed back. It was a soft, gentle press of lips and Harry felt as if he was going to burst from the excitement flooding his veins. He was kissing Malfoy, of all people. When he’d teased him in the changing room, and been winking and smirking at him since then, he never imagined he’d end up kissing him.

Tentative hands touched, and then clutched at his robes. Harry slid his other hand into Malfoy’s hair, making a pleased sound at how soft it was between his fingers. Malfoy shivered and leaned into him. Harry groaned and tilted the Slytherin’s head slightly, tugging at his bottom lip with his teeth and sucking on it gently. Malfoy made a startled sound that swiftly became a moan.

Harry released his mouth and tilted his head back to look at him. His eyes were closed, face still flushed, mouth open and breathing heavily. He didn’t think he’d ever seen something so arousing. Slowly, Malfoy opened his eyes. He looked dazed.

Even though the timing was awful, and Malfoy would probably never let him kiss him again, he couldn’t help the words that slipped past his lips.

“Oh yes, Malfoy,” he said, a smirk sliding onto his face without his permission. “You’re not bent at all.”

Title: Everything Is All We Want
Author: tryslora
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,511
Warnings: threesome
Summary: Draco isn’t entirely certain he understands what Neville and Harry want with him. It takes time for them to help him understand.

Why I loved it: To be honest, Harry/Draco/Hermione is my OT3, and I’m not a huge Neville fan. However, for some reason this story caught my attention, and I’m so glad I read it.

As the summary suggests, Harry and Neville have been together for about a year, when the two of them decide to pursue Harry’s long-time fantasy of inviting Draco into their bed. Well, I say fantasy, but one of the reasons this story is so sweet is that Harry and Neville assert repeatedly that their interest in Draco is more than mere sexual fantasy. According to Luna, Harry is heartsick over Draco, and Neville just wants Harry to be happy. The genuine affection that Harry and Neville share, which they are then willing to extend to Draco, is lovely.

I’m not ashamed to admit that it was actually Neville who really sold this story for me.  Tryslora’s Neville is strong, sexy, and confident – a great complement to Harry and Draco. In fact, although Harry and Neville are clearly equals in their relationship, I got the sense that Neville is the real emotional backbone of the partnership. The fact that he’s willing to share Harry with Draco speaks volumes about Neville’s open heart. Overall, a wonderful characterization of all three men.

Excerpt(optional):

“Don’t be scared,” Harry murmurs, nose brushing against Draco’s cheek.

“I’m not,” Draco lies. “Why, are you?”

“Yes.” The word is a whisper, pressed against the pulse behind Draco’s ear. Harry nips at the skin, fingers sliding under the hem of Draco’s jumper. “I’m terrified.”

A rustle of movement, then heat against Draco’s back as Neville presses in close, hands on Draco’s hips. Draco tilts his head back, lets it fall against Neville’s shoulder, baring his throat to both of them.

“Fine,” Draco mutters. “I might be a bit scared.”

“We’ve got you,” Neville murmurs, sucking at the spot where Draco’s neck meets shoulder. “I’ve got you both.”

Era - After Hogwarts.
Status - Complete.

Summary- Draco is admitted to St. Mungo's. The healers cannot figure out what is wrong with him. The Ministry wishes to remove Draco to another facility, and permanently remove 100% of Draco's magic. Harry, a healer, volunteers to take Draco's case. Especially when none of the other healers want nothing to do with Draco.

**** I will need Skriftlig added to the author's list.

Fic Rec - The Kiss by Frayach

Title: The Kiss
Author: frayach
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 5175
Warnings: None
Summary: Draco’s trial is over, and Harry remembers almost everything.

Why I loved it: Let’s say the everyday world is that of the real, the positive space. That which surrounds the real, its inverse, if you will, is the negative space. In this devastating story, Frayach pushes her characters and us, the readers, into that negative space where madness and darkness reside.

The emotional symbolism of a kiss operates on multiple levels in Frayach’s gorgeous story. I can’t say enough about the sheer lyricism of Frayach’s writing. Using fewer than 5,200 words, Frayach portrays the harrowing cost of justice (or is it vengeance?) extracted in blood.

A sense of foreboding pervades the story, and its climax will leave you wrung out with heartbreak; take a moment to recover your breath. I read with my heart in my throat and was left to marvel at how Frayach was able to marry such emotional impact with such brevity. Her poor, deluded Harry in particular shines in this piece.

There’s little I can actually say about this story without revealing too much of the plot. Suffice to say that the drama lies in what’s not written – the aforementioned negative space. I recommend chasing this fic with something fluffy, something that rejoices in what it means to be alive.

Excerpt(optional):

Not just
a kiss, but The Kiss. The kind of kiss that stops time and blots out sound and sends the blood pulsing to your belly where it pools warm and hot and thick and alive. The kind of kiss that causes the streetlights to flicker and passers-by to whistle and saliva to stream in your mouth so suddenly that you have to swallow to keep from drooling like an idiot down your partner's chin and the front of his shirt. The kind of kiss that foreshadows sex but yet manages to transcend sex and makes you swear to the gods that if they offered you sex at that moment, instead of This Kiss, you'd laugh aloud in their Elysian faces. The kind of kiss that erases the past - good bad and indifferent - and leaves you with nothing but this: This night. This street corner. This mouth against yours.

Despite having shared a thousand kisses with Draco since then, Harry still remembered that kiss - their first kiss - the most vividly.

Fic rec-The Man in the Scarlet Cloak

Title: The Man in the Scarlet Cloak
Author: bixgirl1
Rating:NC-17
Word Count:16,350
Warnings:None
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.

Why I loved it:OMG this is such a glorious, brilliant, wonderful and amazing story. I loved it so much I may have almost cried when it ended. The way she wrote both Harry and Draco was perfection.

The TREES! I love this so much. High Draco acting all dreamy and happy and lovey made me so happy. Also did I mention those trees? The trees! The way they talk, the fact that they're basically lust-matchmaking perverts... oh my god. This is amazing. The sex was way to hot and sizzling *swoons* So much lust and size kink with a LOT of rimming. :))))))))))))))

Do yourself a favor and read this or read it again and again.

Excerpt(optional):The crunch of footsteps sounded behind him, and Draco drew his wand, whirling protectively even as the Tree grew still and watchful; most living things in Forest feared the risk of being used for nefarious means. Sentient Trees didn’t have any Potions properties, but there were plenty of ways to drain their magic.

The bright red cloak caught Draco’s eye first, followed quickly by a curly disaster of tangled black hair and, lastly, eyes the colour of the Tree’s leaves at her happiest. Draco relaxed slightly and lowered his wand as Potter stepped into full view and stopped, looking surprised.

“Malfoy?” Potter had pulled his wand, too, and his hand fell to his side when he saw Draco. “What are you doing here?”

“I work here, Potter. As you very well know. What are you doing here?” Draco returned, trying not to sound defensive.
