The amazing and talented [ profile] agentmoppet has made a podfic of my story, Aural Gratification, in which Harry gets hooked on the sexy voice of an audiobook narrator (GUESS WHO) and *cough* has a bit of a sexual awakening in the process. They did a fantastic job! I love their eloquent and dryly humorous delivery, which imo was perfect for this frankly ridiculous story. Also, I am DELIGHTED at the concept of someone making an audio recording of my smutty story about Harry listening to smutty stories. :D How perfect is that?

You can listen to it here on AO3. Please leave [ profile] agentmoppet lots of love if you give it a try.

[ profile] hd_fan_fair finished posting this week and I was incredibly lucky, I had some gorgeous things written and drawn for my prompts and I feel super-spoiled. I am going to rec every single one of those, not because I feel obliged, but because I loved them A LOT. ♥

(Ugh, I got so excited I missed one out! If you saw this post earlier, please check back now so I can tell you about all 6 of them ♥)

Title: Professor Potter and his Magical Menagerie
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Harry Potter descends on Hogwarts with a horde of magical beasts. Professor Malfoy is not amused.
Word Count: 7,500

Gosh, this is so delightful. I've been longing to read a story based around this prompt (Harry is the Hogwarts gamekeeper who brings chaos to the castle) for ages and the MA did such a charming job with it. It's smart and funny, and Draco trying, and failing, to be a menacing, unpopular professor is hilarious!

Title: Art: Eldritch Horror Seeking Same
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Something is wrong with the Giant Squid, and Hermione is not going to rest until she’s figured this out. She’s not planning on letting anyone else rest either, but that’s ok, because Pansy likes an adventure, Ginny likes whatever Pansy likes, Ron didn’t have anything better on that weekend, and Harry and Draco needed to get out of bed soon anyway, before Teddy broke anything else.
Word Count: 681

Ahhhhhh, this is just about the most glorious thing I have ever seen. It's so warm and wonderful and funny and has touched my life with joy. It's quirkily beautiful, and if you haven't seen it yet, PLEASE go and leave the artist some love, it's astonishing.

Title: Under the Same Sky
Rating: NC-17
See fic for detailed warnings: non-sexual puppy play
Summary: “It wasn’t…” Malfoy stops and there’s something tentative in his voice, the hint of an apology in his words. “It was never about you, Potter.”
With memories of the war still fresh on his mind and Malfoy back in London, Harry's past refuses to stay buried. As Harry tries to grapple with life and love, Malfoy seems determined to make him confront his deepest desires and Harry has to try not to lose his heart all over again.
Word Count: 38,695

This completely floored me. I wasn't sure what to expect from a 40k exploration of non-sexual puppy play, but it's WONDERFUL. The kink side of it is so sensitively and thoughtfully done, and the sex (which is completely separate from the pet play) is SMOKING. I adore stories about two people finding their way through a new kink and this is one of the best I've ever read. It was so satisfyingly insightful.

Title: Whoo Knew?
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Despite having had a crush on his Auror partner for years, Draco's been biding his time and waiting for the perfect opportunity to make his case. But when Harry subscribes to a new wizarding personals service, Draco gets a wake-up call. With each new message that arrives for Harry from a hopeful suitor, it becomes more and more clear that the time to act has arrived.
Word Count: ~19k

Whoa, this is a dream of a fic. Such gratifying pining, and the snarky banter, and so bloody funny and hot as well! Harry was particularly irresistible here, and Draco's characterisation is smart and sharp and made my heart ache for him. Gorgeous stuff.

Title: Winging It
Rating: NC17
See fic for detailed warnings: non-magical AU
Summary: When Draco accidentally bonds with a newly-hatched dragon, and a queen no less, his life will never be the same.
Word Count: 17,700

I was so intrigued to see this prompt claimed (a Pern/HP crossover) and the MA really nailed it. There are so many little details here that make the story work in the Pern verse but with recognisable canon characters, and the two worlds are meshed together beautifully. And then the slight dub-con brought on by the dragonriders' telepathic bond with their mating dragons really hit the spot for me, with a delicious dynamic between Harry and Draco. I don't think you need to be familiar with Pern to enjoy this story, btw, it makes sense as a stand-alone.

Title: Art: Auror Peacock Extraordinaire
Rating: PG-13
Summary: As part of a new departmental initiative, Harry finds himself with a partner he never asked for... and Draco Malfoy.


OK, so my prompt was for Harry to get a highly intelligent, trained animal to help him with his Auror work. A PEACOCK. And for Draco Malfoy to be the peacock trainer.

SO. The MA has taken this utter nonsense and made it a thing of beauty and wonder. And costumes. And shirtlessness. AND GENIUS. I was waiting for this to post allllllll through the fest, and of course I had to wait until the last day because that's how good it was. But it was worth it. ENJOY.

There was so much wonderfulness at fan fair that I was not able to keep up as much as I'd have liked. There are several more entries over there that I have my eye on for when I get a chance, so tell me if I missed something which you loved?

I also want to note the fact that the amazing [ profile] hp_nextgen_fest has started posting with some absolute corkers to enjoy, and the [ profile] hd_fanart fest has also begun! I hope you get time to enjoy all of the lovely things people have created for us, and leave tons of comments instead of using that shitty 'like' feature which I am gutted to see appear.
