In celebration of my one year anniversary of the first post I ever made on LJ (which was an H/D "rec" post I made for myself to keep track of my favs) I've decided to make a post with my most favorite of H/D fics.

Keep in mind that this is 100% subjective and reflects my personal taste in fics in regards to content/tropes/genre/kinks etc. Some of these are acknowledged fandom favorites, but I've noticed that I don't always 100% agree with the H/D classics consensus. I think because I didn't start reading fanfic until well after Deathly Hallows was published, I tend not to enjoy fics written before then that go crazy AU. Again, personal preference, but there won't be many fics written prior to 2008.

I tried to really pick from a wide variety of my favorites. There are eighth year fics, AUs, PWPs, super long fics, different kinks, different themes, different authors/fests/years etc. These are the ones that I have read again and again and I just never get tired of them. Making this list was one of the hardest things ever, which is why I have a fairly long Honorable Mentions list. Those are fics that could basically be on the Top 25, but I couldn't pick any other fic to get rid of.

I decided to put why I chose the fics under a spoiler cut, because the post was getting a bit text-heavy, and there might be minor spoilers in there.

So, in absolutely no order...

Favorite Fics! )

What are your favorite fics? Are there any fics I totally missed? I love hearing about other people's favorites, squeeing about all the wonderful, and adding to my "to-read" list! :)
