Written for the do_me_veela prompt: Harry and Draco help each other out during dry spells when no one else is around that they can have sex with. They unintentionally bond and well, it’s all Potter’s fault.

Incongruent by @agentmoppet (41k)

Crossing Lines by Ren (47k)
While investigating a ring of smugglers, the Aurors receive a tip saying that the European Express is being used to move contraband across state lines.

Don’t Stop Before It Begins by elfearsonli (19k)
“I don’t understand how this is of any concern to you, Malfoy,” Harry said, crossing his arms over his chest. Draco blinked at the use of his last name, something that Harry only used with him in jest these days. “I’m merely spending time with my Auror partner, who is from another country, and has no one here. I would do the same if it were you.”
“It’s not me though, is it?” Draco all but shouted, unable to stop himself.

HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies CEI** Cup

HH Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Endurance Cup

Grazie alla collaborazione e al supporto del Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival dello Sceicco Emiratino Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan e del suo Direttore, Lara Sawaya, prenderanno il via due gare: una interamente dedicata alle donne, che si sfideranno per aggiudicarsi l’H.H. Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Endurance Cup e l’H.H. Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Endurance Cup riservate alle categorie CEI2*, da 120 km. Nella competizione regionale si gareggerà invece nella categia CEI1* da 90 km.

Una gara mozzafiato prenderà il via all’alba di sabato 1 luglio e continuerà nelle sue varie categorie domenica 2 luglio. Attraverserà un territorio unico nel suo genere, assolutamente affascinante e piacevole sia per i riders sia per il pubblico: il percorso infatti si svilupperà tra pinete secolari, stagni incontaminati, lunghi tratti di mare con le sue meraviglose spiagge e attraverserà anche l’antico villaggio di pescatori di Marceddì.

La manifestazione vedrà competere i migliori binomi provenienti dai più noti allevamenti e dalle più prestigiose scuderie del mondo.

Two very significant ships, the HMS Victory, Lord Nelson’s flagship at Trafalgar, and HMS Dreadnought, the ship that revolutionized battleship construction and kickstarted a global naval race, meet with a hundred years between them at Portsmouth.

To think more than a hundred years latter, Victory still remains while Dreadnought, alongside all british battleships, are long gone.

Hi! Do you know any fics, preferably a bit long, where Harry and Draco are Auror partners?

I know lots! In order by word count.

Minister Scrimgeour Does Not Approve by Lomonaaeren

Crystal Clear by icmezzo 

“Harry customizes a snow globe. Draco listens to centaur weather reports. Ron investigates the height of Pansy’s boots. And Hermione knows even more than everything, as usual. (No one signs up for the class for lactating witches.)”  6.5k

The St. Valentine’s Night Murders by softly_sweetly  

“Every year for the past four years, St. Valentine’s Night has seen a murder that affects both the Muggle and Wizard communities alike. This year, however, the Ministry of Magic has its two best Aurors on the case. If only they can stop insulting each other long enough to get some work done.” 7k

Hot and Cold by who_la_hoop

But many companies have opened up their global auditions to all races and ethnicities I know JYPE SM and Bighit all have but IDK if they have any non-Asian trainees just yet!!

anonymous asked:

do you have any fics with like super long build up and lots of unresolved sexual and romantic tension?

Oh goodness, do I ever. Is there anything better than that moment when it’s been building and building and building and then, finally, yes? I’ve stuck with ones that are 20k+ here because you said “long” some where in there and I needed some way to keep this list from exploding, but lemme tell you, it’s taking a lot to keep me from dropping everything and re-reading all of these right now. Enjoy them! And, as always, remember to leave kudos and especially comments for the authors who bring us such amazing stories!

Drarry Recs: Bring on the UST

All Our Secrets Laid Bare by firethesound - NC-17, 150k - Over the six years Draco Malfoy has been an Auror, four of his partners have turned up dead. Harry Potter is assigned as his newest partner to investigate just what is going on.

Azoth by zeitgeistic - NC-17, 89k - Now that Harry is back at Hogwarts with Hermione for eighth year, he realises that something’s missing from his life, and it either has to do with Ron, his boggart, Snape, or Malfoy. Furthermore, what, exactly, does it mean when one’s life is defined by the desire to simultaneously impress and annoy a portrait? Harry has no idea; he’s too busy trying not to be in love with Malfoy to care.

Breaking the Line by kedavranox - NC-17, 20k - Draco was a Dom for hire. Harry was his best client. But Harry disappeared and now Draco’s retired.
Draco’s doing fine (he’s even attending parties!) but who should show up to the latest BDSM shindig, but Harry Potter himself? Can Draco play with his ex-client without breaking the line?

Foundations!verse by Sara’s Girl - G-NC-17, 365k - Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places.

Here’s the Pencil, Make it Work by IgnatiusTrout - M, 50k - Harry thinks “Why is Malfoy working in a coffee shop in muggle London?” is a much simpler question than, “Are you going to accept that auror offer and, if you don’t, what will you do?”

The Incredible Race by Cheryl Dyson - M, 51k - Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, Aurors, are forced to join a televised global race in order to provide some free positive publicity for the Ministry, despite the fact that Aurors Potter and Malfoy don’t exactly get along.

The Light More Beautiful by firethesound - NC-17, 81k - Thirteen years after Draco accepts Potter’s help escaping the horror of his sixth year, he returns to England where he makes the unfortunate discovery that Potter is still as obnoxious as ever. And worse, more than a decade overseas hasn’t been enough to dim Draco’s obsession with him.

A Multitude of Sins by barefacedbandit/cryptonym - NC-17, 41k - Peter 4:8 - Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

On One’s Knees by pir8fancier - NC-17, 34k - The war is over and to the victors go the spoils.

A Piercing Comfort by talithan - PG-13, 44.5k - When Harry Potter hits the lowest point of his life so far, it is not his friends who keep him honest. With Draco Malfoy’s patience and guidance, Harry learns to stand on his own. The thing is, after the fact—he’s no longer sure he wants to.

A Private Reason For This by femmequixotic - NC-17, 92k - When the wife of a star politician in the Scottish Ministry turns up dead just outside Hogsmeade, Draco Malfoy and his murder investigation team are called in from the Edinburgh Auror force to find her killer. What DCI Malfoy doesn’t expect, however, is to have an ex from two decades past end up in his murder room, endangering not only his case, but also his heart.

The Pure and Simple Truth by lettered - G, 65.5k - Harry, Draco, and Hermione go to a pub.  Harry, Draco, and Pansy go to a pub.  Harry, Draco, Pansy, and Hermione go to a pub.  Harry, Draco, Hermione and Ron go to a pub.  Harry, Draco, Hermione, Ron, and Pansy―you guessed it―go to a pub.  I could go on.  In fact, I did.   Harry, Draco, Hermione, Pansy, Ron, Blaise, Luna, Goyle, Neville, and Theodore Nott go to a pub.  In various combinations.

Right Hand Red by lumosed_quill - NC-17, 73k -  Harry felt Malfoy’s breath on his lips as they came together over the bottle, hands firmly planted on the floor as though they each needed their familiar soil, refusing to cross into enemy territory.  Except that Malfoy no longer felt like his enemy.  Malfoy felt inevitable.

Rough Magic by birdsofshore - NC-17, 28k - Malfoy’s magic has run wild. But though wild magic is unpredictable and greatly feared, Harry’s damned if he’s going to let Malfoy rot in St Mungo’s while they work out what to do with him.

Shine, Even in Darkness by raitala - NC-17, 41k - Harry hasn’t seen Draco for over fifteen years, but now he’s showing up everywhere and Harry is sort of weirdly attracted to him, but that can’t be right?

Though By Your Smiling You Seem To Say by disapparater - M, 29k - When I suggest that Malfoy & I go away on a trip to the country, I expect fresh air, scenery and long walks, not strange locals, randy bulls and eccentric uncles. At least we have booze.

Tissue of Silver by fearlessdiva - M, 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. Beware: coarse language, brief drug use, some sexual content, and consideration of issues of sexual consent.

Wish Upon A Star (As Dreamers Do) by icmezzo - M, 27k - There’s plant magic and celestial magic and dark magic and the normal magic that allows Harry to use a spell to clean his socks when Myrtle’s taken up in his laundry room again. Then there are wishes, and dreams, and love, and those are even more magical still.

For many teenage girls, nothing is more sensitive than the way they feel about their appearance. In South Africa, race has been added to that delicate equation.

Last month, black students at the prestigious Pretoria High School for Girls protested a clause in the school’s code of conduct that banned wide cornrows, braids and dreadlocks. It wasn’t a new policy, and many South African schools have enforced similar rules before. But this time, girls pushed back — and their complaints touched a nerve.

The school, which was an all-white institution until the mid-1990s, dropped the restrictions a few days later — but not before triggering a debate across the country.

“They make it out to be about grooming, but it is about race,” says Lesley Chandata, a black woman from Zimbabwe who waits tables at a pizza parlor outside Cape Town.

Decrying Hair Rule, South African Students Demand To Be ‘Naturally Who We Are’

anonymous asked:

i keep seeing your drarry fic recs! i hope you don't mind me asking, but do you have any drarry recs where harry's friendship with ginny is featured? or just where he's good friends with the weasleys in general (featured or not), and without ginny bashing?

Sure, here you go :)


Appallingly Wrong And Irreparably Broken (tessacrowley)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 26,695, Summary: Everything in Harry’s life is pretty terrible, all things considered. His ex-wife won’t stop sleeping around, the government is broken, and his life is an endless cycle of crippling self-hatred and bitter sarcasm. So when Draco Malfoy comes sauntering back into it, sharp as a tack and twice as fit as he has any right to be, the only comfort Harry can find is that he can’t possibly make it any worse. You know, probably.

Harry Potter Gives A Shit (talithan)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 58,557, Summary: “Where are you headed?” “No place special,” Draco fumbled, and flushed further. But then: “I can change that,” said Harry Potter.

All The Small Things (bafflinghaze)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 12.7k, Summary: Harry didn’t know why, but when he saw Ginny and Draco together being so friendly, he had these feelings that he just couldn’t understand.

Running Up That Hill (hazel_wand)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 12,778, Summary: Harry had spent the first years after the war waiting and trying to fall in love with Ginny and had been unable to. It had turned out all right, sort of. Ginny had settled down with the Harpies’ Seeker and Harry, well, Harry had Draco. Sometimes.

Close To Ever After (oldenuf2nb)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 15,075, Summary: When Harry Potter finds he’s been cursed, he withdraws from the world and prepares to die. But when have things ever gone the way Harry Potter planned?

The Lip-Lock Jinx (cassisluna)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 21,436, Summary: It’s a jinx that renders the victim mute, unless he/she serves the purpose of the jinx and kisses the person that they desire. It’s just Harry’s luck that he’s in love with Draco.

One Night At The Leaky (birdsofshore)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 12,439, Summary: Harry should have known better than to accept a drunken dare. Especially when Malfoy was sitting right there, looking like that and wearing those bloody tight trousers.

How I Met Your Father (dracogotgame)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 95,500, Summary: Harry sits his kids down and tells them a story. A very long story.

Two Sides Of The Same Coin (noislessheart)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 117,270, Summary: Harry and Draco find out the hard way that the line between hate and love is a fine one, and that somewhere between the Battle of Hogwarts and being thrust back together as Hogwarts eighth years, they may have just crossed it.

Sharing Different Heartbeats (talithan)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 17,125, Summary: It’s Harry’s first time in New York City, and he is determined to have a good time. How Draco Malfoy figures into this remains to be seen.

Breaking All The Rules (frayach)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 22,407, Summary: Malfoy is slowly wringing the last vestiges of pleasure from Harry’s life with all his rules and committees and agendas and reports. Or is he?

Turn (Saras_Girl)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 306,708, Summary: One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.

The Lesbian Muffle Debacle (abusing_sarcasm)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 7,000, Summary: Pansy and Ginny have a muffin-induced potions accident and Draco and Harry are stuck watching their love life from the sidelines—quite literally. Fortunately, they’re able to give each other a hand.

The Incredible Race (dysonrules)

Rating: NC-17, WC: 52,000, Summary: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, Aurors, are forced to join a televised global race in order to provide some free positive publicity for the Ministry, despite the fact that Aurors Potter and Malfoy don’t exactly get along. MATURE ADULT CONTENT. It’s also my favourite fic.

Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley Are Dating (lomonaaeren)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 4,204, Summary: Harry thinks he and Ginny are dating. Ginny, who doesn’t want him, must send him back into the waiting arms of Draco. A story of love and Quidditch.

All Roads Lead Home (dracogotgame)

Rating: PG-13, WC: 14,991, Summary: Draco is strong-armed into spending the first Christmas after the War with the Weasleys. And Harry Potter.

Brazilian battleship Minas Geraes test-firing two of her 12-inch guns, circa 1909. Upon completion, she was one of the most powerful dreadnoughts afloat at the time, but the rapidity of the global naval arms race ensured that her technical superiority was short-lived.
