was so shocked

anonymous asked:

Hello dear, do you know any Drarry fanfics that are not smut or porn? Something like more adventures, or detectives or something. Like Running on Air, if you know it. Thanks a lot ❤❤

Wow, this was such an interesting and challenging request! I wasn’t sure exactly which part of it to focus on, but hopefully you will find something you like in this list of T-rated adventure/auror/something similar fics! Also, I absolutely loved Running on Air, so I’m going to include it in the list as well just so I can talk about it hahaha :D

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.
GAH, this fic!!! I remember it really well because it is the ONLY fic I’ve ever read that was so powerful, I was literally unable to read anything else for the rest of the day after I finished. That never happens to me. This fic reminded me of American classics like The Great Gatsby, or maybe East of Eden, and I don’t even know why except it was just so well written! So much delicious symbolism!!!! I was originally reluctant to read it because I saw that Harry is falling in love with “memories” and I was like NO GIVE ME DRACO IN PERSON OR GIVE ME DEATH, but then it was amazing and so worth the read and just don’t make the same mistake I did, read it NOW. 

Eclipse by Mijan (287K)- Draco swore his revenge on Harry for Lucius’s imprisonment, and Harry all but laughed at him. But Draco is planning more than schoolyard pranks this time. The old rivalry turns deadly when Draco abducts Harry for Voldemort. It’s the perfect plan, guaranteeing revenge, power, and prestige, all in one blow. But when Draco’s world turns upside down, the fight to save himself and Harry begins, and the battle will take them both through hell and back. If they come back.
This was the first fic this request made me think of, because it has some aspects that are very similar to Running on Air (mostly the whole being-on-a-journey thing)! I’d be surprised if you hadn’t already read it because it’s such a classic, and for VERY GOOD REASON! I loved Harry and Draco’s interactions throughout the story, and it was just such a good, quintessential adventure fic, and I was hooked from the start and couldn’t put it down! Absolutely a must-read.

On Open Wings by dicta_contrion (15.5K)- Answers don’t just fall from the sky, but sometimes birds do. When one almost knocks Harry off his feet, he’s got to save it. If Draco is the only one who can help, well. That’s really entirely irrelevant.
I don’t have a concrete reason why I’m including this fic in this particular rec list besides the fact that, (although it didn’t last a whole day) this short but amazing work also moved me so profoundly that I was unable to read anything else immediately after. It just has that *ambiance*. I reeeeally loved this fic and it deserves about seven times the number of kudos and comments it currently has, I mean COME ON THERE’S AN INJURED BIRD AND A DRACO MALFOY WHO CAN SAVE IT

Twist of Fate by Oakstone730 (302K)- 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. 
This is, in my opinion, one of the best (AND MOST HEART-WRENCHING) drarry fics of all time. It has preeeetty much everything you could ever want in a Hogwarts-era drarry, and then a whole bunch more besides. Warning for MAJOR angst, like so major I had to have my friend spoil me before I read it and I was very glad I did. If you are sensitive to angst and want to be spoiled definitely feel free to send me a message and I will be happy to wail to any- and everybody about what happens so you can prepare your fragile, drarry-loving hearts. And just keep in mind that I’ve never liked a fic without a happy ending ;)

The Snitch-Maker by Omi_Ohmy (21.5K)- Draco is content with his Snitches, with the tap tap tap of his hammer, and the tiny gears and sharp scent of metal in his workshop - until one day Harry Potter appears, asking for help to solve a rash of Snitch-tampering in the Quidditch world. Career Choices: Harry: QUABBLE official (Quidditch representative); Draco: Snitch-maker
Okay let me just say that I freaking LOVE the hd career fair (it’s happening again this year guys, yay!!!) and this is an amazing example of how wonderful atypical career Drarry fics can be. Although Harry isn’t an auror, he’s still been put in charge of solving a mystery, and Draco helps him and THERE aRE SNIDGETS I LOVE SNIDGETS! And also I am such a sucker for any fic in which one of the boys does some sort of craft or something creative, so I absolutely LOVE Draco-the-snitch-maker!!

The Bodyguards by dracogotgame (51K)- Harry and Draco are brought together for a seemingly dull security mission. Things however, are not as they seem. Career Choices: Harry: Bodyguard; Draco: Bodyguard
Another unusual career fic! This fic has some GREAT animosity, GREAT characterization, GREAT original characters, and, in my opinion, an especially satisfying ending! Again, although they aren’t aurors in this fic, there is still a mystery for them to solve! :)

Earthbound Spook by cest_what (57.5K)- Two months after Draco Malfoy was reported dead, Harry and Ron found him tangled in Strangler Ivy on the grounds of Hogwarts.
OOH Dimension travel! Gryffindor Draco! Mystery! Intrigue! Horcruxes! Panic! Romance! Yep, amazing!! :D

Oath Breaker by GoblinCatKC (181.5K)- At the start of seventh year, the Malfoys perform a dramatic double-cross against the dark lord and Draco educates Harry in an old school of magic. With a wild dragon chase, narrow escapes and an unlikely romance as Draco is forced to reveal to a hostile wizarding world that the Malfoy family is dark.
Okay, I really loved this fic! I love when authors explore the whole Light/Dark magic dynamics and come up with their own explanations of how it all works! And the history of why Dark magic has been discriminated against! I also love when more Slytherins than just Draco start working against Voldemort and this fic is such a well-written example of that! And I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love creature Draco as well, and he can be found in all his (very unique!) glory here ;)

((I leave for nearly two weeks and this is what I get….Thank you all so so much, I love you all lots and lots and appreciate the patience as I get my life together omg…))
