Title: Dear Enemy
Author: Ginger Todgers
Rating:Teen and Up
Word Count: 69130
Warnings: Light Angst, Swearing
Summary: An anonymous benefactor makes a generous donation to Harry Potter's School for Squibs in exchange for a weekly letter from the Boy Who Lived. What begins as a chore soon becomes the only outlet Harry has to talk about the war, love, life, hope, redemption, his renewed obsession with a certain blonde nemesis and how he really, honestly, believes that this will be the year Puddlemere United reclaim the Quidditch League Cup.
There are also a lot of epistuar interactions between Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna, Pansy and, obviously, Draco. Very ..alternative and patchwork-y family structures among them all, certainly Non-Epilogue-Compliant save some names of the children


Why I loved it: The letters really channel each character's history and quirks, being sometimes so funny you need to pay attention if you are drinking/eating something. This fic has the potential to just make you laugh out loud in the most improbably moments. But it is not only hilarious, there are a lot of movie, music and other pop culture references in it. Definitely something to read over the holidays :)

Excerpt: (One of Harry's letters to "Mr. X")

Dear Mr X,
I'm missing our updates so thought I'd reinstate them.
We're all recovering from Christmas over here, it's always a bit exciting when there's a new Weasley grandchild at the table and we got two this year. Some of the highlights:


  • Woken up at 6.30 am by Angelina and Lee physically restraining George from starting the fireworks display.

  • Dinner lasted 12 rounds, including a spaghetti course as that's the only thing James'll eat at the minute.

  • Molly caught Luna tipping a packet of Galloping Gumballs into the Yorkshire pudding batter.

  • Arthur insisted on decorating the tree with the reel of VHS cassette tape Bill gave him, which turned out to vulnerable to combustion when placed in direct sunlight.

  • Ron caught Hermione eating fudge behind the Christmas tree and nearly had to be sedated (she hates the stuff and only eats it when she's pregnant).

  • The result of which was that Gin and I got photographed buying an emergency Preggo-Or-Neggo potion.

Well, that's it from me.
Harry
Title - Siren's Song

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2456551/1/Siren-s-Song

Author - Spring Witch

Rating - Romance, Drama, AU, Hurt/Comfort, NC-17, Set during 7th year.

Word Count - 62,942 - 11 Chapters - Updated July 16th, 2006 - Status - Complete

Warnings - NC-17, Fiction T rating from fanfiction.com, AU, Romance, Drama, AU, Hurt/Comfort

Summary - Draco has faery blood in him, but he's not a Veela. Draco is a Siren, a faery being with the

ability to have great power in his voice and through all music. When Draco's sister helps him to escape

from their father, Harry finds himself drawn to Draco.

Why I loved it - I like faery h/d fictions. I liked the theme of Draco being a siren, it was unusual to me. I enjoyed the character development, the emotions, and how the fiction was written. It is long, has hurt/comfort, plot twists, and a happy ending. This fiction ticked all the boxes for what I enjoy in a
h/d fiction.

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.

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.”
