Go read this story now!

So I'm really loving all of the fics at [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays, but this one is just so adorable that I had to make sure everyone read it.

Twelfth Night, or Harry Potter is a No Good Tosser

It's told from the POV of Draco's son Hayden, who is a squib. Basically, when Draco found out that Hayden had no magic, he moved them to the muggle world so that Hayden wouldn't feel left out.

Hayden's POV is so child-like, but also wise beyond his years, all at the same time. Even if you're not a Draco/Harry shipper, you'll love this story. It's great!

Title: Rebellion (And Suffering The Consequences)
Pairing: Draco/James Sirius
Rating: NC17.
Summary: James Potter should be used to having his world turned upside down by now; it's been happening pretty regularly since he was fifteen, but Draco Malfoy redefines the phrase, along with everything else in James's life.
Warnings: Angst, smex, cross-gen, infidelity.

OH. MY. GOD. This is just beautiful. Absolutely fucking beautiful. It's infidelity, which I usually don't read much of, but there are so many other layers to this story, and though the infidelity is essential to the story, there are so many other aspects of the story that just about everyone can relate to. (Most especially, that one person that you just couldn't ever walk away from, no matter how screwed up you were together. Staying apart was never an option.) It's absolutely worth the read.

Title: The Holy Tree Is Growing There
Author/Artist: anonymous
Pairing/Threesome: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~18,000
Summary:
The winsome, winsome elder tree
Beneath whose shade I sit reclin'd;-
It holds a witch within its bark,
A lovely witch who haunts the dark,
And fills with love my mind.
~George Burrow


This. Is. Beautiful. I can't even adequately describe the beauty of this fic. Be sure to check the warnings if you're sensitive about that kind of thing, but I loved it. Harry and Draco are perfectly in character, with Harry fiercely and passionately in love, and Draco as cynical and snarky as always. Snape is perfect in his role of guardian over the boys, and the ending is just... tragically gorgeous.

Read it now!!

Wordcount: ~6700
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Character death, angst.
Summary: The people Harry loved had a funny way of dying—so why should it be so strange that he fall in love with a dead man?

Read. This. Fic. I wasn't so sure about it at first (no offense intended whatsoever, my dear [livejournal.com profile] maja_li) because today has been a crap day and I wasn't sure if I could handle character death/angst today. But I loved this. It's a phenomenal premise, such original ideas, absolutely brilliant!

Summary: Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end ("Closing Time" by Semisonic)

This was actually an idea I'd been bouncing around in my head for a while, and I was thrilled to get a chance to write it for this fest. I really fell in love with this as I was writing it, and I am more proud of this fic than anything else I've written. Please check it out!

Title: Enchantment; Loss

Prompt: 23. A snitch in time saves nine hours of Quidditch.
Wordcount: 11,589
Rating: R
Warnings:Implied chan.
Summary: Harry wishes for one thing only.

GUH. There are really no words to describe this and do it justice. It's AU to the extreme - yet still stays true to canon characterizations. There is such a feeling of longing throughout the entire story, and a hopeful ending the relieves the ache. Truly beautiful.

Enchantment; Loss

Title: Veiled Threats
Team: AU
Author: cyane_snape
Prompt: 18. "This one time, at Hogwarts..."
Wordcount: 22,369
Rating: NC-17ish
Warnings: Mpreg, misbehaving Veela, dirty words, dirtier sex.

According to the authorities, the savior had been kidnapped and the Minister had no other choice than to issue a warrant for the immediate arrest of Draco Malfoy on charges of treason.

Veela! Oh, how I love a good veela fic. And this one is great! It is the perfect blend of creature fic classics and new innovations and creativity. If you have a kink for creature fics, you must read this one!!

Team: AU
Artist: camenaluscinia
Prompt: 14. Drunk as a house elf.

Title: Interpreting Draconis
Team: AU! (YES! We rock!)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dacro
Prompt: 2. "Time is Galleons, little bro, time is Galleons."
Wordcount: 11,043
Rating: R
Warnings: Implied minor character death.
Summary: Draco, the Deaf son of a wealthy businessman, has always had the best of everything, including a habit for rapid signing and a reputation for having a short fuse. When his father disappears, the interpreters who have been on the receiving end of Draco's attitude and temper refuse to work for him. Enter Harry, our 'new on the block' interpreter with a heart of gold, exemplary skills, and a few secrets in his pocket.

So of course I adore everything that [livejournal.com profile] dacro writes, and this is no exception. It's non-magic, but I love, love, LOVE Harry's characterization - it's dead-on for his canon personality. Draco is too, because I know deep down that Draco is a big ol' softie and JKR just got him a bad rep. I also love that [livejournal.com profile] dacro informs us about the Deaf community, but it never sounds wordy or over our heads. Fantastic!!! Go read it now!

Wordcount: 29,300
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: None.
Summary: Clowns are downright creepy, Harry's always thought, so when he and Luna hire one to work in their Party Props shop, he prepares for the worst.

Draco as a clown? OMG y'all, it so works. My Team AU co-captain Joan, has written a gorgeous fic that features clown!Draco, Minister!Snape, and kind-of-living-as-a-muggle!Harry. And Joan's portrayal of Luna in this fic is one of the things I love the most. Go read it now!

Title: primum mobile, or ten forgotten things
Team: AU
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kirinin
Prompt: 20. Close your eyes and think of Hogwarts.
Wordcount: just over 4,000
Rating: PG
Warnings: None, really.
Summary: The truth: logic isn't in the lump in his throat, in his stuttering pulse. He needs the certainty of his name on someone else's lips, which means he needs Malfoy...

Wow. [livejournal.com profile] kirinin says so much in just 4k words. I read it through 3 times, and discovered something new each time I read it. It's beautiful and I absolutely loved the way that Draco and Harry chose to work/stay together when it seemed like everything was falling apart. It's great!

Title: The Magical Mystery Tour
Team: AU
Author: [livejournal.com profile] teganscrush
Prompt: 12. Keep your friends close, and your enemies stupefied.
Wordcount: 15,010
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Minor language.
Summary: The Magical Mystery Tour is the must-see show of the Wizarding world, but when a new act joins up, events take a sudden and potentially deadly turn. Leave it to Harry Potter and his literary hero to save Draco Malfoy, and the day as well.

I have to admit, I wasn't too sure about this fic. The Hogwarts crowd in a circus? Seriously? However, I adore [livejournal.com profile] teganscrush, so I gave it a shot. And I am so glad I did! It's hilarious! I love trailer-trash!Ginny, contortionist!Draco (I mean, how hot is that idea?), and the secret pairing she threw in cracked me up. You will love it!

Title: Comfort After Pain
Team: AU
Author: [livejournal.com profile] akiko88
Prompt: 4. Never tickle a sleeping dragon.
Wordcount: ~12,000
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Some blood and a few curse words.
Summary: When Harry decided to visit the Dragon Preservation Centre Britain, he hadn’t quite thought it would turn out this way.

Such a great use of the prompt! [livejournal.com profile] akiko88's characterization of Harry and Draco was my favorite part of this story. I loved the cameo from Charlie, and the story is so detailed without being wordy. It's a great read!

IF YOU NEVER LOOK AT ANOTHER PIECE OF H/D ART EVER AGAIN, YOU MUST LOOK AT THIS!!!


Title: The First Day Of Spring
Team: AU
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] reira_21
Prompt: 6. No use in crying over spilt potion.
Rating: R
Warnings: Naked men.
Summary: Since Voldemort's death, winter has lasted for three years.

I AM DED. It's breathtaking, it's tragic, it's gorgeous and it's so many other words that I can't even think of right now. Just please go look at it. You'll be glad you did.

Title: Six Years
Author: [livejournal.com profile] chyldofeternity
Team: AU
Prompt: 24. Don't count your mandrakes before they're re-potted.
Wordcount: 4,298
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Angst, character death.
Summary: Hermione's a new Psychiatrist at the Institute. Will she be able to help her troubled patient with his illness?

Chyld forgot to add character death to the list of warnings, and people flipped a shit about it. It's added now, but I feel like adding that warning takes something away from the fic. But it is an amazing fic, and a great representation for Team AU, so check it out and be sure to vote give him love!
the_gubette: (OMG YAYZ)
So my fic just dropped over at [livejournal.com profile] hp_crackdealers, and there are two reasons you should check it out. The first is that it's funny. At least I think it's funny. So it would be funny if you have a sense of humor like mine. The other reason is that my little fic looks lonely with no comments. I'm just sayin.

So go read it!

Draco Malfoy's New Robes
