Salt on a Western Wind   When the war isn’t quite as over as it first appears, a guilt-ridden Harry is sent to a mysterious safe-house. Among sandwiches, insomnia, and Mills & Boon, he discovers something quite unexpected. 
Beyond Wild More and Fen   In the summer before Harry Potter’s sixth year at Hogwarts, something relatively inconsequential causes him to wonder if he’d been barking up the wrong tree the whole time, as far as girls went. As the year progresses – amongst activities geared towards house unity, nefarious Slytherin plots, and dealing with the loss of loved ones – Harry begins to wonder if perhaps giving people a chance isn’t so scary, after all. What does all that have to do with Draco Malfoy? Why, everything, of course. 
Twice as Much as an Earthquake   Accidental bonding. Breaking and entering. Conspiring, however unwillingly, in the strange one-man war Malfoy’s waging against detention. This isn’t the normal school year Harry anticipated having, but at least it’s not boring.
Beautiful World   Draco is afraid of living and Harry is afraid of dying, but sometimes the choice isn’t offered. Draco’s got to learn what it is to really live, while showing Harry how beautiful the world really is when you’re not too scared to see it.
He Touches Me   Hermione stumbles upon Harry’s diary. Contains slash. Harry and other male…you’ll have to read to find out who…
Bond   Yet another one of those Harry And Draco Are Forced To Be Together By Something Beyond Their Control And Then Stuff Happens Leading To Twoo Wuv stories. Because every HD writer has to write at least one. 
It Started in the Shower   When Harry finds Malfoy in his shower at Grimmauld Place, the two boys struggle to keep their hands to themselves, not realizing that their ‘enemies-with-benefits’ relationship will eventually become considerably darker and more powerful. That relationship will influence the search for the horcruxes–and the war–in unpredictable ways.
To Give Everything   Draco finds The Room, a torture chamber in the Hogwarts dungeons and longs for someone to submit to him. Harry finds he needs that and more
Cactus Angels    Harry and Draco face off at breakfast. Weirdness and sex are not far behind. Draco likes to hurt him and Harry likes to be hurt. It’s a win/win situation.
A Certain Kind of Memory   What would you do if you were given less than a year to live? An uplifting Harry Draco story.
Hero Like Me   Drarry Eating disorder fic “He’s lost everything. But unlike them he never really had anything to begin with… And maybe when he’s skinny enough his ghosts won’t be trapped in his bones…”
IDK My BFF Hermione   Draco’s a hot mess. Harry’s lovin’ it (hell yes).
Another Mask Behind You   Draco is a high-end prostitute who hides his identity. Harry unknowingly hires him. And then there is porn, questions about identity, domestic bliss, more porn, and truth as seen through a web of lies. 
Right Hand Red   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.

Best Enemies   Draco and Harry are still enemies… right?
Superlatives   A photo of Harry and Draco captured by Colin Creevey’s camera sets off a series of unexpected events. HarryDraco pairing.
Love Comes Tumbling  'Harry’s thoughts were of how much he would have done differently with Malfoy over the years, and of Dumbledore’s final words to the other boy … “It is my mercy, and not yours, that matters now.” Maybe, Harry wondered, he could find some mercy, too, and give Malfoy the second chance that Dumbledore had believed him worthy of.' 
A Piercing Comfort   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.
Yours is the Earth (hold on, hold on)   When they first meet after the end of the war, Draco doesn’t want anything to do with Harry. But as time goes by, Draco’s growing love may be the only thing that can save them both, because after a serious accident in the Forbidden Forest, Draco’s personality begins to undergo subtle changes. At first, Harry credits this to a new enthusiasm for life. But as the days pass and Draco’s behavior becomes more and more mysterious, Harry begins to suspect that something bigger–and darker–is at work. 
Twist of Fate  Draco asks Harry to help him beat the Imperius curse during 4th year. The lessons turn into more than either expected. A story of redemption and forgiveness.
Tissue of Silver    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.

Reparation's   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   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?”
Kiss a Boy in London Town   Kiss A Boy In London Town (And Other Intimate Misadventures of A Society Whore) There’s only one cardinal sin for a whore
Brevis Birch’s Brilliant Boondoggle   “You,” Birch pointed at the two flabbergasted Seekers again, “will pretend to be in a long term, committed relationship. You will do interviews and photo shoots, go on dates, buy one another gifts, make with the PDA, all of it." 
Tug-O-Want   Harry is back at Hogwarts minding his own business when he finds himself magically drawn to Draco Malfoy. Over and over again.
I Feel You   Harry and Draco take a potion that is supposed to link their hearts together, but end up connecting a different type of organ entirely.
That Missing Something   On two different sides of London, living their own lives and finally experiencing peace and even some happiness, Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy begin to feel a little…empty. It’s manageable at first, but after the emptiness come odd emotions striking at odd times, jeopardising work and friendships, and after odd emotions come urges and longings for something they can’t find. Unable to find the piece they’re missing and clueless as to what’s making them this way, Harry and Draco experiment with different ways to solve their issues – but what if it’s all connected?
Ligabus Filium    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 realise it. And when the little blue threads bind them together, there’s no going back.
Love from fire, and Loam from Ash   Despite what Harry tells himself, he is not over the firestorm that was his relationship with Draco Malfoy. Despite all their efforts to avoid it, they are forced to confront it all again. Based on and around La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi.
Get some    Harry is getting rather fed up with everyone treating him differently after the war, and catches hold of the one person who doesn’t care about his hero status. 
Mental  Harry thinks he’s spent enough time sharing a mind with someone else than you very much. a miscast legilimancy spell says other wise
Unhook the Stars   "Love is like a Rubix Cube: there are countless wrong twists and turns, but once you get it right, it’s perfect no matter how you look at it.” Seventy-thousand words of pornographic discourse between two boys-turned-men that still haven’t learned how to communicate like normal people – with words.
Let Me be Your Voice   As the hero of the revolution, Harry leads the wizarding world in its efforts to rebuild; but first old wounds must be tended, rifts caused by hate mended, and his history with Draco Malfoy seems like the perfect place to start.
Anger Management  Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy locked up alone in Grimmauld Place was just asking for trouble. As far as everyone else is concerned, it was bound to happen eventually; Creevey’s thrilled, and Snape’s not pleased. 
The Worst Happiest Day of His Life   "We have to WHAT!?!“
 When the Songbird Stopped Singing   Shortly after the war, Draco Malfoy wakes up with a new understanding, and Harry Potter needs firmer ground to walk on. Unfortunately, life is never easy, especially with the burdens of N.E.W.T.s looming closer. As Draco struggles to maintain his sanity, Harry is back to his old routine—stalking Draco.
Friend Like Me   Draco’s rendition of the Love story that never was. 
Nightingale   God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
A Balancing Act Series   Draco has lost his parents, friends, and all sense of security. Hogwarts is a lonely place for the boy who used to have it all. Then, one day, he finds comfort in someone unexpected – Harry Potter, who is keeping a most tantalising secret.
Corruptella Vox   Draco’s kink is revealed. Pretty much a PWP. 
All Bets are Off   I am SICK of Good-little-innocent!Harry…”“Enter Playboy!Harry and his Over inflated Ego, a challenge, a bet, a couple of Really Cunning Plans - and there you have it, "Forty days and forty nights”, Hogwarts style. Mayhem ensues!
Two Sides of the Same Coin   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.
Unknown Pleasures The Room of Requirement was definitely broken. Why else would it be presenting Harry with a whip, some handcuffs, a blindfold, and a… what exactly was that thing, anyway?
Hurt for the Right Reasons   Everything was so cocked up. He just wanted this one thing. He wanted to hurt for the right reasons for once.
Punishment   Harry loses an impromptu wager with unforeseen consequences that open doors neither he nor Draco Malfoy had known existed.
Unexpected Consequences  Harry was going back to school. He was going to play Quidditch, sleep in lessons, hang out with his friends, and generally just enjoy being a kid for a change. And he was also going to do it while being bonded with Malfoy, because apparently life was just going to continue throwing curveballs at him. Harry didn’t know why he expected anything different.
Helix   Seven months after the end of the war, Harry is feeling lost. Fortunately, he is about to be offered an unexpected and sparkling chance to find himself again.
Talk to Me   When the usual channels of communication are shut down, the most surprising people can find a way in. A strange little love story.
An Inconvenient Impracticality   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?
Temptation on the Warfront  Draco Malfoy is forced into hiding with the Golden Trio and dragged into their search for horcruxes. What ensues is a journey of redemption, unexpected friendships and an unwanted, turbulent romance with Harry Potter. Warnings for swearing, sexual content, and dark themes.
One Night at the Leaky   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.

Wtf Liz.

Red: Takes liz to dinner. Brings liz gifts. Holds liz when she cries. Holds hands with Liz. Kills people to save Liz. Came out of the box for Liz. Took a bullet for Liz. Gives Liz forehead kisses. Buys Liz an apartment.

Liz: This is strictly business and that’s all it will ever be.

It was very apparent quite early on in the start of filming for the season, even though she was not able to make an announcement and was honoring the requisite grace period of a first trimester of not speaking of it or sharing it. It was apparent to most of us that Megan was pregnant. It was apparent to me within the first month or so of shooting, and yet I don’t think she really acknowledged it until considerably later than that.

I don’t know why, but I think it’s kinda sweet that Spades realized that Megan was pregnant well before she’d acknowledged/announced it. I wonder if he, like Red, said nothing about it and waited for her to bring it up herself. I could easily see him doing just that.

Spoone feels, man.

Domovoi, Dvorovoi & Ovinnik

I won’t pretend to be an expert on these Slavic fey—Eastern Europe is where my grasp of folklore gets fuzzier.  But all three of these house spirits—the domovoi, dvorovoi and ovinnik—are charming wee folk with a lot of character. They exhibit all the helpfulness of a brownie—well, the domovoi does, at least—and two of the three have the power of foretelling.  That’s quite a boon if you can convince the fey to grant it…but the transaction is not without risk.  Speaking of which, all three house spirits also have some personality quirks that make them highly entertaining as NPCs, but quite troublesome as adversaries if they ever go a bit…wrong.  

And so, while in the main these are mostly harmless and sometimes even helpful spirits, it’s that whole “gone wrong” bit I’ve emphasized in the adventure seeds below… I mean, who doesn’t love pyromaniac cat-faeries?

A parsonage has long been blessed with a domovoi.  Some members of the family even suspect he is a reincarnated ancestor, or a household god from the time before the Azure Crusade.  But the family’s overreliance on the domovoi for auguries, as well as the Aklo-laced whisperings of a neighboring witchcrow, have driven the old fey mad.  He has become a barabashka, a knocker, using mage hand and telekinesis to hurl objects about and rap on the walls. Unless restored to his old self, it is only a matter of time before he does real injury…or worse.

An adventuring party’s wealthy benefactor has a beautiful new wife…until, thanks to a polymorph lobbed by an old enemy, he suddenly has a beautiful new white cat. The adventurers aren’t ready to take on the evil wizard yet, but they can try to keep the cat-wife in good health till a dispel magic can be arranged. That won’t be easy, as the benefactor’s estate is watched over by a pitchfork-wielding dvorovoi, and the wild fey takes an instant (and murderous) dislike to the snow-white feline.

In Brementon the night is split with the howls of angry animals.  The cries are of such ferocity that instead of brandishing brooms and throwing stones to hush the creatures, the Bremenfolk instead lock their doors and shy away from the windows.  In daylight, they whisper of “the Dog War.”  Actually it is a war between house spirits and gremlins, the catlike ovinniks and the doglike pugwampis.  Driven from their canyon homes by filth, disease, and other monsters (including a possible looming invasion of flinds), the pugwampis attempted to move into Brementon en masse.  The local ovinniks are having none of it, but they don’t have the numbers to rouse a proper defense against the gremlins, resorting instead to guerilla strikes.  As the conflict wears on, the collateral damage is beginning to grow.  The ovinniks have begun attacking anyone they regard as a pugwampi sympathizer, including harmless dog owners, and they have burned down a handful of houses they suspected of being gremlin-infested. Meanwhile, the ill luck manifested by both sets of fey has settled over town like a miasma, spoiling milk, ruining cart axles, and generally making life miserable.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #67 86–87 & Pathfinder Bestiary 5 142–143

Actually house spirits versus gremlins is kind of a thematically perfect adversarial setup, and throwing 1st-level PCs in the middle could be a great campaign kickoff.  If you’ve got players who really like playing monsters, you might even skip the core races entirely and have the PCs start off as fey.  There might be some balance issues early on, but Pathfinder offers some guidelines for doing so.  (As a bonus, 3.0-era D&D had a whole book on the subject, Savage Species.  Normally I don’t recommend rule-heavy splatbooks, but you might find this one useful.)

Hiiii my beautiful followers

I reached 2000 of you guys and I thought the best way to celebrate it is to make a thank you rec list :)

And because I’m in a drarry mood here you go (I might do wolfstar next time)

I hope you like them <3

It started with the spin of a bottle, and now Harry and Draco have gotten themselves so far into their own game there’s almost no way out again. Except to keep playing.

One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.

5. An Issue of Consequence by Faith Wood (faithwood) (complete, words: 20798)

6. Right Hand Red by lumosed_quill (complete, words: 73173)

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.

7. How I Met Your Father by dracogotgame (complete, words: 95500)

(This is a crossover but you don’t have to watch himym to understand this)

Harry sits his kids down and tells them a story. A very long story.

8. Eclipse by Mijan (complete, words: 309,149)

Draco swore revenge on Harry for Lucius’s imprisonment, and for once, he keeps his promise. The old rivalry turns deadly when Draco abducts Harry for Voldemort. But when Draco’s world turns upside down, the fight to save himself and Harry begins.

9.  The LipLock Jinx by Cassis Luna (complete, words: 21,436)

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.

12. Somebody to Love by khasael (complete, words: 31274)

Draco’s life after the war is quite different than it used to be. When he finds himself cursed, with little hope for lifting the spell, he sets out to make the most of the time he has left.

It always rains for Draco Malfoy. Metaphorically. And literally. Ever since he had accidentally Conjured a cloud. A cloud that’s ever so cross. 

For me, running is a form of moving meditation – it’s my time during each day to really get away from it all and be with my thoughts. There’s nothing I love more than climbing a mountain by headlamp pre-dawn and watching the sunrise from a trail or mountain top. Running is the one activity that’s physically exhausting but mentally and emotionally recharging. Every run presents a new challenge, a new opportunity to push myself, and a new time to reflect on everything else going on.

In my life, there’s nothing else quite like it. Simply put, it’s my sanity.

THIS IS SO GREAT. Fluffy domesticity + lowkey angst + one of my favourite tropes - Drarry being unwillingly bound together! Ahhhhshhsfkajshfklhf the pacing is a bit slow (60k words, slow burn romance) but it’s so readable and well-written that I just wanted it to last forever. The characterisation was great and I was smiling from ear to ear throughout. I love fic like this.
