I promised [ profile] capitu I would make rec posts before reveals and she's not even here to see this, my second post. *sniffle* But I loved this fest so much, [ profile] hd_erised was absolutely mighty this year and I just wish I had more time to waffle on about all the fabulous things I read. This is a whistlestop tour of some more of my favourites. I'm still reading! Everything is amazing!

Title: Time and Again
Author: [ profile] lauren3210
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (blink and you’ll miss it Ron/Hermione and Ginny/Dean)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,700
Warnings: None, really
Content/Enticements: Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey stuff; fast and loose interpretations of how both magic and time work; Auror case!fic
Summary: Draco has an important research assignment, and he needs Auror protection. Harry’s a little concerned, not only because he can’t even pronounce the places Draco’s dragging him off to, but because there’s the slightest chance he might do something stupid, like tell Draco all about that little crush he’s been harbouring for a while now...

I loved this so much. It was sweet and hot and funny. The whole thing is a joy, but if you haven't read it already, PLEASE can I tempt you with the scene where Harry, with his so-called secret crush, is off his face on pain potions and insists on rambling on about how much he wants to kiss Draco , in front of the wonderfully amused Theo Nott. It's hilarious and also soooo romantic and hot.

Title: Like a Star Across My Sky
Author: [ profile] lumosed_quill and [ profile] sdkshelly
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco; background: Hermione/Millicent, Ron/Pansy, Blaise/Luna; reference to past Harry/Ginny and Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~24,500
Warnings: None
Content/Enticements: Terrible skiing! UST! Sex! Ice buckets!
Summary: When Draco discovers Harry Potter is his new landlord, he's convinced he's going to lose his shop. When Harry discovers Draco Malfoy's been invited on his friends' annual ski trip, he's certain his holiday is ruined. This is the story about how neither one of them is right.

This is a total hoot. It's so pacy, and smart, and really fucking funny. But it's also got depth to it, and this really satsifying scene which throws fanfic cliches on their head, and some STEAMING sex. *fans self*And then sometimes it just has you clutching your heart with the unexpected feels. If you missed this one, I highly recommend it. You'll never look at an ice bucket the same way again :DD

Title: Expecto Patronum
Author: [ profile] writcraft
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~35,000
Content/Enticements: Romance, Enemies to Friends to Lovers, Flangst, Bondage, Rimming, Switching, Pining
Summary: Harry Potter is the most sought after celebrity in wizarding Britain. His every movement is scrutinised, his relationships questioned and his photographs plastered over every paper. Harry's used to everyone thinking he’s a hero and has had plenty of time to learn how to keep his biggest secrets hidden from the press. As Draco Malfoy negotiates his feelings for the wizarding world's brightest star, he becomes increasingly attached to Harry and unravels the secrets he keeps hidden from the rest of the world.

This one has a delicious Harry who gives as good as he gets in the push-and-pull, flirty, snarky tension between the two of them. And Ron! Oh my god! If you're a Ron fan, you have to read this totally awesome Ron. It all felt so fresh, and vividly described, and then the hints of bondage, *nnnnnnghhhh*.

Title: A Convenient Impracticality
Author: [ profile] firethesound
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (background Ron/Hermione, Dean/Seamus, Ginny/Luna)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~38,000
Warnings: none
Content/Enticements: Friends-with-benefits, fake-dating, pining, lots of bickering, and all of Harry’s and Draco’s friends are terrible.
Summary: Somehow Harry ends up agreeing to a fake relationship with his ex-nemesis-turned-friendly-acquaintance-w
ith-benefits, except for some reason it involves an awful lot of actual dating and, sadly, not much sex. Confused? Harry is too, but when has anything with Draco Malfoy ever been as straightforward as it seems?

I reckon you've all read this, but I have to rec it. This is GLORIOUS beyond measure. The Harry POV will steal your heart away. It all seems effortless but it's SO BLOODY GENIUS and clever and emotional and HOT HOT HOT. It's fairly likely you've read fake dating fic before; you may even be of the opinion that you are TIRED of fake dating, but this fic is here to prove you wrong, and leave a big stupid smile all over your face.

There'll be another post if I can squeeze an extra hour into the day - with art. THE ART! *flail* I don't think I can even pick my favourites. I might have to rec EVERYTHING. O_o

Erised was just SO high quality this year overall. It was hard picking my top fics to rec out of what I've read (and I need to make a concerted effort to read the rest, I'm so behind!). picking top fics was hard enough; I wouldn't even know where to begin with the art. GO YOU for getting your recs done!!

I too loved Expecto Patronum. I couldn't agree more about the wonderful push-pull of the relationship. For me that pushed the UST into transcendently perfect territory.

THIS! I must read it now! Can't resist a scene like that. :D

But I'm also immensely intrigued by those other three recs. I think I have to read them all! Thanks for your charming recs!
