Hi! Can you share with us a list of your most favorite DM/HP fics? They can be any genre, length or type. Thank you and I hope you have a lovely day :)
Choosing these was so incredibly difficult!!! But also incredibly fun. I love every single one of these fics with all of my heart, so I’m going to refrain from commenting on the recs this time because I think that much flailing might actually break me (plus, it would just be me saying I WOULD DIE FOR THIS FIC over and over again. I don’t want to bore you guys). Just be aware that I 100% insist you read ALL OF THESE. I tried to hit various genres, lengths, and tropes :)
They are in no particular order, and PLEASE for the love of God do not ask me to put them in one.
Top 25 Favorite Drarry Fics
Tales From the Special Branch Series by @femmequixotic (630K so far)-
When Gawain Robards asks him to form Special Branch seven-four-alpha, Harry Potter knows they’ll have to work outside the confines of the law–even though they are the law.
What We Pretend We Can’t See by gyzym (131K)- Seven years out from the war, Harry learns the hard truth of old history: it’s never quite as far behind you as you thought.
Turn by Saras_Girl (306.5K)- One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.
Mental by sara_holmes (186.5K)- Harry has had quite enough of sharing his mind with someone else, thankyouverymuch. A miscast Legilimecy spell says otherwise.
Here’s the Pencil, Make It Work by ignatiustrout (49.5K)- 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?”
Strange Bathfellows by @bixgirl1 (27.5K)- It started with a bath. Or a potions accident. Or maybe it started before that, but who can tell anymore. Featuring: Uncomfortable wanking, more comfortable wanking, mutual wanking, bath sharing, inappropriate betting, secret shagging, those secrets at Hogwarts that everyone knows, and oblivious Harry who knows one thing: he’s falling in love.
Ligabus Filium by @tessacrowley (43K)- It should be careful, deliberate, but it isn’t. Like every other part of their relationship, it happens gradually and then all at once, before they even realize it. And when the little blue threads bind them together, there’s no going back. BDSM.
Secrets by Vorabiza (395.5K)- Beginning with Draco’s unexpected arrival at the Dursleys, Harry’s summer after sixth year becomes filled with activity and many secrets. As his summer progresses, Harry generates several unexpected allies as he finds himself actively becoming the leader of the Light side.
All Our Secrets Laid Bare by @firethesound (149.5K)- 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.
Right Hand Red by @lqtraintracks (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.
How to Handle an Enemy by who_la_hoop (7.5K)- Everyone knows that it’s no fun playing truth or dare with a Slytherin. But add a little Veritaserum, a scheming duo of Slytherin girls and surprising things can be revealed. Particularly about the fine line between love and hate…
Any Instrument by @dictacontrion (131K)- Draco Malfoy wouldn’t go back to England for anything less than an exceptional case. Being asked to figure out why Harry Potter can’t control his magic might be exceptional enough to qualify.
Headlights in the Snow by Saras_Girl (71.5K)- What’s big and purple and smells like tea? Harry is about to find out.
The Critiquer by dysonrules (24K)- When Harry submits his cock photo to a renowned Cock Critiquer and gets a terrible review, he decides to take a photography class to hopefully improve his skills.
Two Weeks by @shiftylinguini (22K)- If Harry had to guess which out of he or his Auror Partner, and tentative new friend, Draco Malfoy, would turn out to have Veela ancestry, his answer would be: neither, because that is ridiculous. Finding out the answer is actually him, and that his Veela heritage is wreaking havoc on his ability to work, sleep, and above all be in the same room as Malfoy, is a surprise to say the least. But this is fine. Harry’s been through worse, and he can just sit this one out, regardless of how much his body is screaming for the one person he doesn’t want to ask for help. Can’t he?
Good Company by Greenflares (8K)- With Hermione and Ron always together, Harry’s return to Hogwarts to complete his education isn’t exactly fun. Somehow, it’s his unlikely friendship with Malfoy that keeps him sane.
A Convenient Impracticality by @firethesound (38.5K)- Somehow Harry ends up agreeing to a fake relationship with his ex-nemesis-turned-friendly-acquaintance-with-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?
The Heart’s Honest Truth by @bixgirl1 and @carpemermaidtales (16K)- “Don’t you think I would have gone to Pomfrey if I thought she could help me?”
“Then what can I do?”
“I nee—” Malfoy broke off with a soft grunt and a pained expression. He took a shaky breath and tried again, his voice wobbling. “Will you touch me, Potter?”
Draco is cursed to speak in questions. Well…Spelled, thanks to the stupidly improper archival practices of the fourth century. Harry Potter is there to save the day, but Draco isn’t going to give in to his help so easily. Fortunately, the method of saving might be more satisfactory than Draco expected this time.
Rough Magic by birdsofshore (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.
Big Dick, Come Quick by Calanthe (Download link!) (204.5K)- Draco’s got a theory. About sex. And after much searching for the right candidate, it appears that only Harry Potter, his life long enemy, can help him test it out.
Waiting by an Open Door by @femmequixotic and @noeeon (29.5K)- Draco starts following Potterwatch secretly during the War. He wishes Potter would come save him too. But that sort of thing only happens in fairy tales, and Malfoys don’t get fairy tale endings, do they?
Edible Smudges and Insufferable Potters (and Insufferable Smudges and Edible Potters) by faithwood (2K)- I’m embarrassed to say that the title summarises the fic perfectly. But let me try something else: All Draco wants to do is study. That’s what libraries are for. Study History of Magic, that is. Not Potter.
Running on Air by eleventy7 (75K)- Draco Malfoy has been missing for three years. Harry is assigned the cold case and finds himself slowly falling in love with the memories he collects.
