-LGBT representation-especially bisexual

-even though it’s sitcom you can treat it how y'all treat dramas and analyze the shit out of it for theories
-josh/carol anne is the love-hate on opposite sides otp I’ve seen in a million fanfics actually on screen

Sooooo I heard you do fic recs 👀 what are the best fics you know that have auror!harry? (Bonus points for auror!draco too!) thanks luvvvv
Hello, love! I had to split my auror!harry recs into two parts because there were just too many incredible fics!! So first, go have a look at my Drarry as Auror Partners list! Then enjoy these auror!harry with miscellaneous!draco (haha is that a thing?) fics as well :D
tissue of silver by fearlessdiva (76K)- A love story concerning possessed furniture, black silk pyjamas, courtroom drama, premonitions of doom, assassination attempts, Death Eater yoga, absinthe, bare feet and a sensible werewolf. Draco is a seer and somebody is out to murder him, so Harry moves in to protect him. According to the author, an attempt to explain ‘how Canon Draco could turn into Fanon Draco,’ and I LOVE FANON DRACO
The Full Monty by magpie_fngrl / @cat-wolfe (10K)- Harry poses for a naked Auror calendar and Draco goes batshit crazy with lust. I ALSO WENT BATSHIT CRAZY WITH LUST FOR THIS FIC. So funny. So hot. Baby chick named Arthur. Lawyer!Draco. Has sequel. Perfection <3 *kisses fingertips with flourish*
The Good Guys by Frayach (27K)- The Second Voldemort War is limping into its fourth year, and the Forces of Shining Light are slowly turning into the Forces of Expedient Grey. When Draco Malfoy is captured red-handed trying to sell an illegal potion to a clerk at Borgin & Burkes, he is handed over to the Department of Essential and Necessary Truth’s newest interrogator. And as soon as he sees Malfoy, bound and waiting in his cell, Harry Potter knows he’s in trouble. Deep trouble. YO THIS FIC FUCKED ME UP. IT WAS AMAZINGLY GOOD. SUPER WELL-WRITTEN. Not what I would usually recommend because I am bad with endings that are anything but “happily every after,” but READ THIS ANYWAY IT IS ART.
The Unlikely Career Choices of Mr Draco Lucius Malfoy by who_la_hoop (5.5K)- Draco Malfoy is up to something. Something evil. Because he’s certainly not mixing drinks in Muggle London for the good of anybody’s health now, is he? This fic was hilarious and adorable and Draco has all these weird muggle jobs and I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT and want to re-read it 27 times.
It Must Be (True Love) by frostywonder (45.5K)- No amount of playing by the rules has made Harry’s life any easier, and Malfoy has matured but also hasn’t. They are who they are, and though they try, neither one can fully change. This fic was super wonderful and compelling and I’ve no idea why it doesn’t have more kudos!! Harry is assigned to watch over Draco’s (dangerous) brewing projects and they both keep almost dying it’s great
On the Turning Away by blamebrampton / @blamebrampton (25.5K)- It’s one thing to be good at not making a besotted fool of yourself over a man when he’s busy being the most famous wizard in the world and you’re tucked away quietly in Wiltshire. It’s quite another when you have to see him every morning. Blaise sends Draco a Christmas Tree in the mail, and somehow this leads to Draco ending up with Harry as his parole officer. Who he has to see every day. Lovely, Christmassy pining! <3
A Fox’s Bargain by raitala (6K)- Harry made a bargain with Draco. He knew it was going to come back and bite him on the arse, he just didn’t think about what exactly Draco would ask for. Draco would say that Harry must have known deep down what he was agreeing to, but then Draco is a prick and what would he know? AAAH so hot! I don’t care if you probably wanted case fics and this is pretty much just D/S style smut, READ IT SO SEXY.
Partners of the Four-Legged Variety by carpemermaid / @carpemermaidtales (18K)- “Training starts in the home, Potter, so your new Crup and I will need to stay with you for a few weeks while I show you how to properly train and bond with him.” The Auror Department is instating a K9 Crup Unit, and Harry is the first to sign up. Turns out the professional trainer is Draco Malfoy, and he has to live with Harry as part of the Crup training programme. Praise kink!!!!! Pining!!!!!! Living together!!!!! PUPPIES!!!!!!
Chains of Earth by dysonrules (90K)- Draco is kidnapped and forced to make a choice between taking his own life or becoming something less than human. Of course, he makes the right decision. Enter Harry, who discovers he has a bit of a thing for wings. This is a great long case fic!! With veela!Draco. Warning for some Weasley bashing.
Interoffice Communication by Snegurochka (10.5K)- Draco has convinced the Auror department to test his new messaging charm for secure communications. Harry really would have preferred that he not find out through messages like, ‘Yeah, tonight you’re going to beg me for it,’ that the system wasn’t as secure as they thought. Soooo Harry accidentally receives a sexy message (or like twenty) from Draco intended for Blaise, and then he obviously can’t stop thinking about it. And it doesn’t help when Harry’s own name starts coming up ;). Super super hot!
Paint it Red by dicta_contrion / @dictacontrion (5K)- Draco’s a graffiti artist with a bone to pick. Harry’s the P.I. tasked with catching him. Or, apparently, stalking him all over town, asking a lot of questions, and showing surprising artistic talent. Harry’s meant to stop Draco vandalizing, and he fails miserably. Or very very happily, depending on your point of view :D
The Auror Method by Lomonaaeren (43K)- Draco has constructed the perfect cover for his activities as a con-man specializing in thefts from a distance: Draco Malfoy, the redeemed Death Eater and Recluse of Malfoy Manor. But now there’s evidence that some people are onto him, and as a consequence of the death threats issued to him, he gets an assigned Auror guard. Maybe Harry Potter, their leader, could be a problem when it comes to Draco’s latest con. Although how could he, when he’s getting all distracted by Draco’s fluttering eyelashes? This was a very thrilling read! I love Draco and Harry trying to con / figure each other out while totally falling in love at the same time, just GIVE ME THIS TROPE A THOUSAND TIMES.
Fight the Starless Midnight by Maab_Conner (22K)- Harry thought that he was going to arrest Healer Malfoy for practicing without a license. Nothing ever goes as planned. Great fic with a really good case element! When Harry goes to arrest Draco, he discovers an even bigger problem involving Mungo’s. Meanwhile Draco is a (still snarky) saint <3
When Hearts Are Freed by oldenuf2nb (23K. Locked to AO3 Users only)- When Draco Malfoy’s gallery is robbed and a priceless magical artifact is stolen, he finds himself working with Chief Auror Harry Potter to both recover the fabulous necklace, and to prove he didn’t steal it himself. Draco owns an Art Gallery, which is obviously amazing, and Head Auror Harry is sexy and confident, and YEAH. Great case, great build. YEAH AGAIN.
Here Be Dragons by birdsofshore (22K)- Harry doesn’t want to waste his time investigating illegal dragonhide trading, whether it involves a fetish club in Knockturn Alley or visiting a remote island in Wales. Why the bloody hell does Malfoy always have to be up to something? Harry suspecting Malfoy of things is just the best, and I love this iteration especially. There are dragons!!! And lots of leather!!! And kinky(ish) sex!!!!

Summary: A love story concerning possessed furniture, black silk pyjamas, courtroom drama, premonitions of doom, assassination attempts, Death Eater yoga, absinthe, bare feet and a sensible werewolf. Beware: coarse language, brief drug use, some sexual content, and consideration of issues of sexual consent.
Review: I… really don’t know how I can convince all of you to READ THIS NOW as much as I want you to. This was just… so much fun and wonderful, wonderful banter and character development and originality with the mystery and allure of Dracos Seer abilities and… ugh yes, it has all the things that kept me from it at first as well - a slightly fanon and spy! Draco, a very lovable Snape, etc… but… I just loved all of it, and just so regret putting this off for so long!
This fic was written between the 4th and 5th books, so prepare for some AU, but trust me when I say there’s so much to enjoy because of it. Let me tell you, this is a fic that is difficult to put down once you start. It really is a ride - there’s the most rivetingly ascerbic and amusing characters, clever dialogue, humour despite all the -frankly- tragic circumstances, fascinating magical theory, a hell of a plot and ‘whodunit’ness, relationship and character development, all this pent up want and attraction between Harry and Draco … yup, a lot.
Harry and Draco are so intrigued by each other that you end up being swept along with these feelings of curiosity as to how each of them got to where they are, unravelling feelings for each other along with all this fear of the future, the past, the present.
It has so much of what drew me to fanfiction in the first place, seeing all the characters and their relationships with each other in ways that I envisioned and didn’t really see a reflection of in canon, while having a great time in the process of reading.
This was easily one of the best things I’ve read lately, this being a classic in the fandom.
Content/Warnings: AU (HBP, DH), Bodyguard/Protecting, Mystery, Coming Out
Birthday - EF - Bhavana B Rao Sat, April 8 .. we wish you a very happy birthday and send all our greetings .. the Ef ..
40 years of ‘Alaap’ and 34 years of ‘Andhaa Kanoon’ .. such times .. such subjects and such makers ..
Alaap inspired by a real life incident and story that took place in Allahabad, a rebel son that refused to follow his Father’s profession, and instead when he had to earn a living became a tonga driver .. Hrishi da at his best .. a poignant story .. did not do well .. perhaps a little too poetic of the times ..
And Andhaa Kanoon .. an appearance that came as a barter for a film that i was working in, and which could not be made .. the makers of AK, taking over those rights of the film and placing me in AK .. the courtroom drama a great insight into the law .. you cannot be accused for the same crime twice .. so my character that is wrongly accused for murder, actually follows the culprit who had accused him of his murder, into the court and kills him there in front of the Judges, claiming that I cannot be accused for the same crime twice .. a dynamic story .. and my first association with PurnaChandra Rao and T Rama Rao the director .. we went on to make other films as well ..
And Alaap those rare moments with Hrishi da .. the honour of working with the great Chaya devi from Bengal a veteran and of course the poem of Babuji that was the only contribution that my Father agreed to .. he refused to write a song for a film, but said if you want my poem take it as it is and use it as a song in its purity .. we did ..
Hrishi da was a silent musician as well .. played the sitar .. as did his brother .. and many a time on set he would simply pick up the instrument, there as a prop, and entertain us .. an ardent listener being yours truly ..
So yes .. to put things out in the open in order to stop any speculation .. I suffered a stomach infection after consuming a Pizza with the hottest red chilli powder, the cause of the infection .. and am nursing a stiff neck and shoulder pain .. the neck pain has a history .. it is injuries received during stunts conducted in the 70′s and 80′s .. the protection gadgetry that is available now for all artists was absent then in those years .. the jumps and dives and action work was loaded with real action, causing all the injuries .. they now play up .. age has given in to them .. so neck braces medication and and all other kinds of treatments follow .. they work momentarily .. a final solution is being worked out, hence the absence from functions and events .. the fever persists on the infection and its control is being worked on .. yes there is discomfort .. nights are the worst .. getting horizontal is impossible .. so most nights are spent sitting and hoping to get some sleep thus .. it is a trial, but one that has to be endured .. all else is well ..
The last thing that would greatly upset me would be the multiple queries treatments and other advices from the Ef on how I should conduct myself etc .,
I appreciate the love and affection and the concern, but I understand that and urge all to not be too perturbed .. all is well and on the right path .. these episodes will occur and shall be taken care of ..
OK .. !!???
And now to attempt to get horizontal .. right .. good night .. if it does not work, the horizontal I mean, I shall be back here again to pester all with even more connect and writing ..
Deal .. ??
ps : and there is absolutely no doubt in all your minds as to where all those pictures above came from : correct - Moses !!
this from Ludmila ..
Now don’t go on a comparing spree about how others make great many images and they do not get reference here .. its just one of .. many others also feature in other platforms .. no jealousy and back biting please ..
I had to watch it again because I missed some stuff but I had a lot of feels so…
Kara being extra™ with that flip, calm down bitch you aren’t Lena
Rhea sitting so calmly on her throne reminds me of Lillian in the courtroom
Rhea + Lillian = drama hoes
Kara vs Clark….I wonder who will win on a show all about Supergirl
Kara Zor-el Danvers officially Earth’s champion -this is very good
Ew even in dream sequences Karamel is ugly, those poor dream bed sheets and my poor eyes for having to look at that mess
Lena looks so good
CASUAL DRESS LENA IS MY FAVOURITE
Lena really likes to keep herself hydrated damn
Winn fumbling on his way to see Clark is so relatable tbh
Winn mouthed “I love you” to Clark. Bi Winn is rising!
Once again Mon-El wasn’t supportive in the slightest, doubts Kara’s abilities and suggests that someone else could do a better job. A potato would be a better boyfriend than him
Space Dad has been promoted to Papa Bear (Winn Schott confirmed this)
Lena only had to mention her girlfriend’s name and I was already happy. Lena giving zero fucks is my aesthetic. Lena being lowkey jealous when talking about Kara’s relationship though
Couldn’t they just shove Mon-El off of that rooftop - I wish they had
Pfft Kara told Lena to work on the weapon, despite it being something that could kill Mon-El is hilarious. When’s the yeet, his face is annoying me?!
Science tech bros are the best brotp
Of course Lena gave Kara the remote, she is whipped af she is the truest person in National City
Good riddance Mom-El
Cry harder Mon-El, bye bye I won’t miss you
🍷 Clink, clink!
I’m 99% certain that all of the DEO were clapping over his departure.
M’gann is so amazing, I cannot
I am 100% here for Space Parents
WHERE IS JAMES OLSEN?!
That Sanvers proposal was….? I mean I think it was rushed but I’m not against it, if Alex is happy then so am I. I just hope they draw it out in season 3 and give it the time and care that we deserve.
Fuck you CW Writers, how dare you make out that Karolsen never existed. There was a whole season of build-up and you have the cheek and the disrespect to claim that Mon-El was the only person Kara ever loved/cared about. That’s disgusting.
Um where is Lena Luthor’s thank you?! Seriously?! she saved the world AGAIN and we didn’t get a thank you?????????!
Of course Cat knows. It’s very nice to have a confirmation though
Oh yay another pod -_____-
It better not be another cis, white male trying to steal Kara’s show.
Let me explain why I’m asking. People are writing fluff and smut fics of the Zircons, and that’s nice. But I grew up with a dad who likes Law and Order and we both love Boston Legal, and… if I wrote a Zircon fic, I’d want to write a fic that pays both homage and satirizes courtroom drama comedies.
Basically the idea I have kicking around is Steven saves both Zircon gems and the Zircons begin to miss their purpose as lawyers. But, as they find from courtroom dramas on TV earth also has lawyers. So, with a small loan, they buy a small office and start Zircon and Zircon: Attorneys at Law. Business is slow because the humans don’t know how serious this is, but eventually they take a case or two and their popularity begins to soar. But more tension breaks in as they are technically practicing law without a license, so in a bit of a twist the Zircons are now on trial and a human lawyer has to defend them to keep their business as well as keep them out of jail.
This does have promise for character development and, as I like making new original characters, there’s gonna be some of those in there. But a few things hold me back. First, I think this is gonna be a long multichaptered fic. How long is uncertain, but enough for three cases. However, since I know enough of the law as an episode of Boston Legal, they should be short and easy to follow. The second is I’m tempted to have the Zircons handle a case that’s too not family friendly. This is to not only for them to learn how different and brutal earth can be, but as a fan of Boston Legal I’m more invested in cases that involve murder or harassment or mature themes like that. So yeah, while it’s gonna be as Steven Universe-al as possible, the fic may take on some mature themes.
So, that’s my pitch. I’m pitching it cause I’m a shy, nervous, low self esteem writer who wants to waste time on a fic knowing people are excited about it. Excited about it? Give me a like or a reblog to let me know!

Benji stays with the trio while Sasha and Mirren are in the hospital, everyone establishing a new routine quickly.
“That’s it?” Benji asked.
“What do you mean?” Yuri asked.
“She doesn’t look like the babies on tv,” he said, “She looks like a wrinkly potato.”
“Benji, the babies you see on tv are a few months old,” Viktor explained, “This is what a newborn looks like.”
“When will she look like a real baby?” Benji asked, squirming in Otabek’s arms until he was lowered to the ground.
“You might want to ask Mommy that. I really don’t know,” Viktor said.
“I want to go see Mommy now,” Benji said, tugging on Otabek’s hand.
I know someone has probably said this already, but I wanna bring it up now that the hype has died down over the awesome Blue Zircon defense.
Blue Zircon was assigned to defend Rose Quartz. Was clearly going to suffer some kind of penalty that might include shattering (”both our gems are on the line”), was clearly trying to shut him up about confessing guilty (yes it’s a hilarious courtroom joke, I actually like it, but he doesn’t have a chocie in the matter), and was stressed out and humiliated by the situation. She manhandled and yelled at Steven for claiming guilt and not being able to explain the crime.
She came up with a brilliant defense out of a need to win for her own safety, out of a situation that was the worst possible. She did the unthinkable, and in her passion and stress-fueled euphoria at winning despite all odds, she accused the diamonds of killing one of their own. She even admits she went too far and apologizes as she’s poofed.
In the end, though, she was stressing out because she HAD to prove Rose’s innocence - that was what she was ordered to do. She couldn’t back out and she couldn’t fail, and it was implied she was to suffer something equal to Steven’s dire fate if she lost.
Yes, I want Steven to thank her for an amazing defense and praise her. But I also want it addressed in the show, preferably by him, that he wanted to turn himself in to save his friends, and she did everything she could to prevent him from doing that. She was not on his side - nobody in that room besides Lars was anything but hostile to him, including BD (who still wanted to punish ‘Rose’, just after getting an explanation as to how she could have done it).
It’s so much of a parody and reference to real-world courtroom drama and has such a serious tone amid the humour of a courtroom parody drama that I feel that just not saying it would be a great error. If they don’t do it, it’ll be disappointing. It won’t make the episode any less phenomenal because it’s already acknowledged all of this from the start, but I feel at the very least it needs to be brought up if Zircon is to ever return in any serious capacity.
I would very much like more Zircon in the future. If not well, that’s unfortunate, but it’s not a gamebreaker.
