Harry Potter Fic Recs

My HP Fic Recs. I tend to like multi-chapter epics (50,000+ words) and the majority of them are rated R/NC-17. I much prefer fics that aren't on fanfiction.net, but I won't rule out reading them if there are good reviews (gushing over the author doesn't count) even then I'm leery however. I also prefer completed fics, I've been burned too many times by WIP's, my one continual exception is AYLNO.

A note to all HP authors: If you have fic on FF.net, please consider moving it to AO3 or another HP archive. There are many to choose from, if you need help finding one, ask, please, it will only work to your benefit.

Why, yes I've found a fandom where I like Het pairings. ;) It happens so rarely it deserves special notice. *grins*

I'm always looking for new fics to read. If you know of a fic you think I'll love, based on these recs, feel free to leave a comment here. You can see other pairings I'm interested in here.


Rectober: HP Fic Recs

These are all WIP's and all of them can be considered abandoned at this point. However, they are still really good stories and deserve some recognition. Obviously I love them or I wouldn't be recommending them.

They are also some of the longest fics I have ever read!

5 recs this timeCollapse )

Rectober: HP Fic Recs

Author/Artist: birdsofshore
Pairing(s) Draco/Albus Severus
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,030
Warnings: Shaving (facial) kink, Age Disparity (43/17)
Summary: Staying with Scorpius for the first time proves to be more eventful than Albus expected, right from the moment when he walks in on Mr Malfoy shaving.

Why I loved it:
It's so unbelievably HOT it melted my brain. No seriously. Go. Read.

Author/Artist: eidheann_writes
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,846
Warnings: Exhibitionism
Summary: It was just a stupid training exercise; why did he have to be paired up with Malfoy?

Why I loved it:
This is Harry and Draco at their best really. They're tired and dirty and wet and supremely annoyed and they can't stop picking fights with each other and it just keeps building until they're horribly horny and can't keep they're hands off each other. What could be better?!?

Title:Come For Me
Author/Artist: frayach
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,663
Warnings: Watersports (Important! See author’s notes), fleeting mention of H/OC infidelity, a brief "threesome," gender-bending fantasy role-play – and a ridiculously happy ending.
Summary: After Draco is paralyzed in an accident, he and Harry discover a new way to make love.

A/N: You may think you’re squicked by “watersports,” but this is NOT your grandmother’s watersports kink fic; in fact, I’m even reluctant to call this a “kink fic” at all (although it definitely is very very kinky). This is a romantic story that features a new way of making love when one of the partners has suffered a severe spinal cord injury and can no longer have a "traditional" orgasm. Until now, I’ve stayed away from reading & writing watersports fics because they so often involve humiliation, which I don’t like unless done exceedingly well. There is no humiliation in this story, only intense desire and a will to overcome any kind of adversity for the sake of love. *blushes at own sappiness & hides under bed* So that's what the fic is. What it is not is a "disability kink" fic. There is no fetishization of disability and no weird & creepy sexualized power dynamics related to disability.

Why I loved it:
The beginning is so heart-wrenchingly angsty. Then it's just beautiful and romantic and HOT as hell. I am such a sucker for fics that combine all of that into one story and this one does it brilliantly.

Oct. 5th, 2014

So, in my effort to become more active on LJ I have rejoined landofart, which means my graphics comm will be getting some use again. :)

My migraines are limiting the amount of tv I can watch, so I haven't really started many new shows this year and I cut back on some of the older shows as well. Even with that however, the list of what I'm watching is a bit unmanageable. *g*
The list and my thoughts on the showsCollapse )

Rectober: HP Fic Recs

Title:Love Like a Sunset
Author: snarkyscorp
Pairing(s): Harry/Scorpius
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,713
Warnings (Highlight to view): *ADW: 45/19, some homophobia but that's what the fic deals with ;)*
Summary: The Wizarding community in Britain is a very conservative place. Scorpius is the leader of a rebellious group of queer young folk, out and proud and pushing as hard as they can against the strictures of their society. He's the most over the top, wild, flamboyant man that Head Auror Harry has ever met. Scorpius might as well walk about under a giant sign that declares him the gayest man in Britain (and once, he did). Harry is terrified that Scorpius will figure him out, but, god, he can't stop thinking about what might happen if he did.

Why I loved it:
This could have turned into crack!fic so easily and it didn't. It beautiful and real and brilliant.

Title: The November 9th Letters
Author: oliversnape
Pairing(s): Gen
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5,513
Warnings: None
Summary: Every year Harry Potter writes a letter to his second son, who is growing up surrounded by friends and family, new and old. Ignores a good chunk of the epilogue, happy and light.

Why I loved it:
This type of story isn't usually my cup of tea, but it is adorably sweet and the ending put a huge smile on my face.

Title: The Love of A Good Wizard
Author: sweetsorcery
Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Tom Riddle, Pansy Parkinson/Minerva McGonagall
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 75,027
Warnings: Time Travel, AU
Summary: History of Magic has something to teach after all, and two resourceful students decide that the key to having any future at all lies in the past, and in Tom Riddle's heart. Assuming he has one.

Why I loved it:
Wait!!! Don't run away! I know the pairings are a bit shocking but this story is worth it! Come on, give it a try, you know you want to. ;) It's SweetSorcery's most popular story for a reason after all. It even has a happy ending.

For something slightly different...

I've decided to give this a try. I'll be posting recs for fics that, for one reason or another, aren't on my HP rec list. Including at least 1 post dedicated to seemigly abandonded WIP's. I'll try for 1-2 posts per week with 2-3+ recs per post. I'll also try to slip in at least 1 post of fic for something other than Harry Potter, but really it's been well over a year since I've read anything else. Oops.


Highlander, The Who and AO3

So I finally got around to posting all my Highlander ficlets and drabbles to AO3 last night, including one I hadn't posted anywhere before. They are posted as a series because I've always viewed them as being part of the same 'universe'. I know they're rather awful, probably the worst of all my fics, but if you're so inclined thay can be found under their shiny new series title "A Different Light".

I also found an RPS John Entwistle/Kieth Moon ficlet I wrote and never posted. It's now on AO3 as well. A Cure for Boredom. Because it's RPS, it is locked for members only. I'm very picky about RPF/RPS and have fits when I see it posted anywhere in unlocked posts.

Somewhere around here I also have a Buffy/Spike ficlet I wrote about 10 years ago and never posted. If I manage to find it I'll be putting it on AO3 as well.

Happy Birthday Harry Potter


Harry Birthday Meme

A comment fest for fic, discussion, meta, squee, art and any other random thoughts about Harry on his birthday!

My ramblings about Harry:Collapse )

HP Fic Recs

So, I posted a prompt over at hp_darkarts for the Taboo Kink prompt fest and it's been filled!!!

Dreams by tiraen (Harry/Voldemort ; PG-13) After seeing Harry's erotic dreams, Voldemort decides to make them come true. [Taboo Kink: Rape Fantasy/Bloodplay]

I also wanted to rec a hilarious crack!fic

Truth or Dare? by TheFatalIllusion (PG-15)
When unusual circumstances leave the Dark Lord, Lucius and Draco Malfoy, Severus Snape, Ron, Hermione, Ginny and finally Harry Potter trapped together, unable to use their magic, what will happen when Harry suggests the innocent game of Truth or Dare?
Warnings: Crack!fic, Stupidity, Ron Bashing, Dumbledore bashing, slight Ginny bashing, OOCness, Extreme Silliness, Slash (snogging), Het (snogging), pranks, Embarrassing/Humiliating revelations, Hilarity
Note: Re Warnings, this is a game of Truth or Dare the questions and dares are meant to be difficult and embarrassing. That's the whole point of the game.

Both of these will likely make it in to my HP Rec List eventually.
