Be Prepared by birdsofshore | NC-17, 3,600 words, Warnings: Major consent issues, although everyone has a mighty fine time. Sneaky!Harry. Voyeurism. Ridiculousness.
Summary: Draco was just trying to have a quiet bath. Now Potter has some explaining to do.
Okay, so my prompt was that Harry rides Draco's cock in the prefects' bath, and I just casually threw in that maybe Draco's thinking, 'How the hell did I end up with my cock up Potter's arse???' right? So Birds took that and, like, WENT PLACES. Like, Draco really doesn't know how he ended up with Harry in his lap, impaled on his cock and happily wriggling. It's fucking HILARIOUS. But of course, it's also hot, because hello! Draco's cock up Harry's arse! While they have this fucking ridiculous conversation about it. I've read this story three times, and seriously, it only gets funnier and better somehow.
In Motion by drarryxlover | NC-17, 5,700 words, Warnings: angst
Summary: Sex is emotion in motion -- Mae West
My prompt was essentially just slow, sleepy, on-their-sides fucking, and this delivers that really beautifully but then adds this lovely story of acceptance and standing up for one's self. The sex at the beginning is wonderfully hot and exactly what I would have hoped for, but my favorite part is the end, which made me want to cheer for Harry and Draco. <3
Any Dark Alley by iwao |NC-17, sketching pencils, Warning(s): Half-clothed sex. Outdoors sex. Semi-public sex. Sex. Also, bare bottoms and peens. Lol!
Summary: Catching Dark Wizards is a stressful job. Thank Merlin there are ways to relieve the stress. Any dark alley will do.
I prompted for Auror!sex, against the wall from behind and HELLO!!!! So, yeah, this SO DELIVERS. I already rec'd it, so I won't go on and on here. You should just totally click on this link. That is all. :-9
Recs for fics NOT from my prompts, just because they're so awesome and I was going to do a separate post for them but if I do them here, I realized, I get points at writcraft's comment-a-thon, lol:
An Act of Kindness for One Harry Potter by a Sympathetic Draco Malfoy by 0idontknow0 | NC-17, 15,000 words
Summary: As Draco leaned on the wall to wait for them to get dressed, he could not help feeling like he had done a very kind thing by disrupting them. Someone should give Potter a better rogering than that sorry sod had. The man had saved the bloody world—okay, mostly Europe—the least someone could do was give him a proper shag.
Draco walks in on his roommate, Harry Potter, getting really badly shagged and says, "Okay, that's your anus and my cue to leave." *cue me dying laughing* And it just keeps going, being so funny, so endearing, so HOT. It's such an engaging and entertaining read. It went really fast, and I didn't want it to end. <3
The Rose Tattoo, written by vaysh and drawn by raitala | PG-13, 3,200 words
Summary: A drunken tattoo becomes the anchor and compass in Draco's life.
Atmospheric language, gorgeous art... I loved the mystery of this story. I didn't know what was going to happen. When the end happens, and I got it, I grasped my heart like an old lady and sighed. And then I just stared at the art. Really beautiful piece.
Last City by zeitgeistic | NC-17, 27,500 words
OMG, soooooooooo funny!!!!! Read it for the humor alone. But no. Don't. Read it for the beautiful UST, the blazing hot sex, the great lines, the angst and the heart and the ahhhhhhh! Just read it. Like you haven't already. ;-)
Title: let me see you stripped (down to the bone)
Prompt: # 23 -- Harry and Draco are wizarding Chip-n-Dales, except their show is getting a little boring. Everyone's already seen it. What can they do to get people back in the doors? Live fucking. On stage. Night after night.
Summary: "So," Malfoy said. "Are you in? Or are you out?" He turned and looked at Harry squarely. Harry remembered the slow way Malfoy had slid his hand down his own stomach, into his pants – the outline of his long fingers gripping and stroking his own cock. The way his head had fallen back, exposing his pale throat. How he had owned them all. He took a deep breath. "I'm in," he said.
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry, (Hermione/Ron, Millicent/Luna)
Warning(s): stripping, exhibitionism, some alcohol consumption, and yeah I gave in and did my first leather trousers!Draco
Word Count: ~24,000
Author's Notes: I have to thank my utterly amazing beta, sdkshelly. I mean, beta, crit, cheering, crying, squeeing… This wouldn't be near as good without her. <3 Also, elrhiarhodan kicked my fic ass in the most awesome way! I'm so very grateful for her notes and support! zeitgeistic, I fell hard for this prompt. I hope I've done it justice. Thank you for the awesome idea! The title is from the Depeche Mode song, "Stripped", that I've been listening to obsessively.

Title: How to Bag Harry Potter
Kinks/Themes Chosen: DD's 8th birthday!
Other Warnings: cross-gen, godfather/godson, unreliable narrator, body morphing, second person (Teddy) POV
Word Count: ~3,000
Summary/Description: Teddy's trying everything he can think of to attract Harry. None of it is necessary.
Author's Notes: This is a sequel to How to Resist Shagging Teddy Lupin. Big thanks to birdsofshore for the beta!
In the Interest of Interhouse Cooperation by firethesound at dracotops_harry | NC-17, 12k, Content: A slight bit of dominance during sex, and maybe a teensy bit of dub-con.
Summary: Organizing a Duelling Club was supposed to be a fun extracurricular activity for Harry’s 8th year. But add in Draco Malfoy and a malfunctioning Room of Requirement, and things can’t help but get complicated.
Why rec'd: Will a huge keyboard smash suffice? Because I don't know where to start with this one! First, I about died laughing throughout. The author (who I am 99.99% sure about) has a killer sense of humor and the writing skill to really pull it off perfectly. And half the laughs come during scenes that are also blisteringly hot, so that just makes it better. And speaking of hot...SDFS;ALHFSLGHSALHGDSH!!! You get the picture, right? GO READ THIS! It's everything great about 8th year, stuck!fic, their animosity, and their unfailing UST.
Stag Night by iwao | NC-17, Content: Erm, dingy pub toilet? And a blow job.
Why rec'd: It's iwao -- do you have to ask?? Just look at the content and allow me to ask, what the hell are you waiting for?! But if you're still stubbornly here, I will add that this is a beautiful rendition of a hot and angsty scene from sdkshelly's Take Me Down, and believe it or not, you'll love the art even more if you read this first. AND, on top of all that, 'Stag Night' is actually a prequel to a second piece of art by iwao for this story. (I include the link for THAT in a previous rec, so check it out!)
Save My Wonders by sdkshelly at dracotops_harry | NC-17, 21k, Content: chubby!Draco, angst relating to body issues (no fat shaming) (emphasis is the reccer's).
Summary: Immediately chocolate assaulted Draco's senses. Warm melted chocolate mixed with his mother's roses and... something else. Something new. Freshly scrubbed skin and maybe a faint sheen of sweat. It was so familiar...
And it only intensified when Potter came up behind him...
Why rec'd: Wow. Well, let's see. I don't often say this, but this story...it's important. So often, we writers (myself very much included) make 'perfect' bodies, and hey, that's super fun, so I'm not knocking it. But this story rethinks perfection; it acknowledges something so often ignored in fanfiction and that is a fuller, more diversified expression of this human experience we're all having. The author's Draco is fat. Harry wants him. Harry's got it bad. But Draco can't believe that he would. It's handled so deftly and with such personal care and love for the characters and their situation that this story isn't just great because it's fat-positive or because the H/D is beautifully done or because it's superbly written. It's great because it transcends all of those individual successes and becomes more than the sum total of its parts. This story speaks to the heart of the issue and asks us to open our hearts not only to the idea of a beloved character with a culturally non-ideal body, but to ourselves as well.
Please take the 'no fat shaming' part of the content seriously. The intent of this story is not to get Draco to lose weight and thereby feel good about himself. (I should know; I beta'd it.) So if you're going into it unready for the unconditional love you'll find there, know that it may press your buttons. Please be mindful in your comments not to do the very fat-shaming that the story so brilliantly subverts.
That said, dive in and enjoy. It's clever, funny, sweet, HOT, and moving. This story really is a rare treat. <3
ART: Any Dark Alley by iwao | NC-17
Why rec'd: It's dirty and fast and gotta-have-it-now, and I LOVE IT! This was drawn for my prompt in which I requested Auror partners, the high of defeating dark magic, and Harry taking it up against a wall from behind. If that sounds like your thing then THIS IS YOUR THING. Holy God, it's hot! And beautifully drawn, of course.
FIC: A Fox's Bargain by raitala | NC-17, 6k, warnings: Non-con kiss (at the beginning), dub-con sex, fingering, rimming, orgasm denial, D/s dynamics, unredeemed!draco (he’s an arsehole).
Why Rec'd: It seems unfair to give such a brief reason here, because this story is exceedingly well-written, the psychological aspect is extraordinarily done, and the diction is flat-out tasty. But really it's this: this is some of the hottest sex I've ever read. You guys know me. You know what I like to read, what I like to write, and I'm telling you, this is some of THE HOTTEST SEX I'VE EVER READ. I wouldn't recommend reading it at work. At one point, I literally whimpered.
And please do check out the fest as a whole! It's a thing of beauty that I'm proud to be a part of. :-)
Warnings: cross-gen, possibly chan (or AU)
