Realized I've been slacking with my HP Recs lately! I actually think most of these recs are from December (and even November), and I just forgot to post them... :/

But I have A Plan and hopefully I'll be on a somewhat regular reading schedule to knock out some of the TBR fics floating around in my inbox and bookmarks. :D

Title: The Weight of Eternity and remix Time to Eternity
Author: [livejournal.com profile] envy_venis and [livejournal.com profile] wellhalesbells
Pairing: Harry/Draco, brief Draco/OCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~37,000 total
Content/Warnings: veela!draco, creature!fic, rimming, mates, healer!harry, bottom!draco, implied switching
Summary: Desperate for survival, Draco takes what he needs from others while avoiding the one he’s meant to be with. His newfound compassion will not allow him to trap the one he loves, even if it means his own life is the price paid for Harry’s freedom of choice.
Wonderful Veela!Fic with Draco knowing that he needs to be with Harry, his true mate, but unwilling to ask Harry for something he's sure he won't give. Sweet build, and super sexy. The remix is the same story but from Harry's POV.

Title: Stop and Stare
Author: [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl
Pairing: Draco/Harry, Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count:78,314
Warnings/Content: switching, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, holiday!fic
Summary: Harry’s life is full of care, he has no time to stop or stare; he has no time for anyone’s shit, until his friends aren’t having it. A story about the unravelly things.
Such a beautiful fic. Harry and Draco are sort of part-time friends, until Harry is forced to encounter Draco mor frequently and actually get to know him. The build is gorgeous and slow and not at all angsty. Just a really lovely, gentle fic with a very satisfying ending.


Title: Flying in Place
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lumosed_quill
Pairing: Sirius/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,623
Warnings/Content: underage, face-fucking, blow job friday 2015
Summary: Once they'd all gone, Harry turned and leaned against the countertop. Sirius stared at him from his seat at the table, long legs stretched out. They both listened to the others' voices retreating, their footsteps going slowly up the stairs.
Super hot PWP set during OotP. Loved the connection between Harry and Sirius that shines through.


Title: Golden, Ripe and Rotten Series (4 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] starfishstar
Pairing: Albus/Gellert
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8,244
Summary: Three glimpses into the summer Albus Dumbledore met Gellert Grindelwald in Godric’s Hollow, from its beginning to its end. (Plus one extra to the series: the story of the duel.)
Really beautiful and haunting series showing the rise and fall of Albus and Gellert when they were teens, and a fic detailing their duel all those years later. The writing is gorgeous, and the characterizations felt so real and authentic.

Still deciding if I want to do this. I want to try participating in different fests this upcoming year, and I'd like to participate in more H/D fests in particular. But exchange-type fests make me nervous, and I can't think of anything that I'd really want to remix on my own....I'll have to keep mulling it over.

I'm not sure these *technically* count as Rectober recs, since I'm not including *why* I'm reccing them. But I needed to repost my HP art rec posts, because it was starting to get too big for LJ to handle, and I figured Rectober would be as good a time as any to do that.

So here, have a ton of H/D art recs! These span from ~2007 to last week, and are some of my most favorite pieces of art for the pairing that I've seen around.

This list is by no means exhaustive. Mostly art hosted on LJ and for fests, because I find deviantart kind of overwhelming, and if I kept track of every piece of art ever, I'd be here for awhile. But if any of you guys have art recs for me, I'd love to look at the pretty!

These are listed in date order, so the newest recs will be at the bottom of each section.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_remix is such a fun fest, and I love how each submission basically comes with its own rec that you get to experience (or re-experience). Plus, whenever I get into a fic, I always wish there was more, or I got to hear from a different POV, or there was an epilogue, or a prologue etc.- which is just what this fest gives you!

A few of my favorites from the fest are below, but there were a lot of great contributions this year, so I definitely suggest checking out their masterlist!

This is a post with all of my Draco/Harry recs where the boys are still in school. I have sorted it between:
• Hogwarts AU: the fic goes AU sometime during their school years and is not DH compliant
• Post-War: the fic takes place immediately after the main part of DH ends and does not go past that summer
• 8th Year: mostly DH compliant and the boys went back for another year of school after the war

CLICK HERE to see my other Draco/Harry rec lists.

In the Notes section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "bonding!fic" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!
