So I actually didn't read too much non-H/D Harry Potter fic this month. :/

Most of my other pairing efforts went into proofing for hp-nextgen-fest, and I cannot wait to share all of the fabulous submissions with ya'll, but we still have another couple of days. ;)

In the meantime, here are a few HP things I enjoyed recently. :)

Title: I Believe I Could Drink You Dry
Author: [ profile] crazyparakiss
Pairing: Scorpius Malfoy/Albus Severus
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,966
Warnings: bartender!scorpius, fuck buddies, bottom!albus, hp adoptaprompt 2015
Summary: After a breakup Al decides relationships aren’t for him, and Malfoy never says ‘no’ to a shag.
Oh this fic is wonderful! I loved this sexy, sharp-edged Scorpius, and an Albus who's fed up and just wants to get fucked. Lovely ending, with potential for more between these two.

Title: Touch the Ground
Author(s): [ profile] sdkshelly and [ profile] lumosed_quill
Pairing(s): Pansy/Hermione, (background Harry/Draco)
Rating: Hard R
Word Count 1,350
Content/Warnings: semi-public!sex, past relationship, hp silencio 2015
Summary: Pansy remembers, with perfect precision, how Hermione tastes against her lips.
Really sexy and wonderfully written fic! I loved the dual POVs, and how we really get a sense for both of them and how they feel about each other. The lack of dialogue works gorgeously here.

Title: How To Befriend Magpies
Artist: [ profile] shiftylinguini
Character: Sirius Black
Rating: PG
Medium: Pencil/Digital
Summary: Sirius black charms a magpie.
Super lovely drawing of bare-chested Sirius covered in shiny things trying to befriend a Magpie. I'm not sure what it is exactly about this piece, but it feels so fitting for Sirius, and the quiet tone of it is really beautiful.

Here are all of the H/D fics I read and enjoyed in October!

Big thanks to everybody on my flist who recced Drarry! I wasn't organized, so I didn't keep track of who recced what, but a lot of these are on this list because ya'll brought them to my attention. Or re-brought them, as the case may be, since a lot of these I read ages ago, and with Rectober I had an excuse to rediscover the magic. <3

Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter
Rating: G
Word Count: 1,050
Content/Warnings: hp silencio 2015
Summary: Fighting for the Snitch can sometimes be more than they ever imagined.
Really gorgeous little thing. The way Draco's vivid dreams and passion for flying (and Harry) were conveyed was just lovely.

Title: Ring of Fire
Author: favicon IvvyMoon
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,692
Content/Warnings: tattoos, healer!harry, bottom!draco, patient/healer

Smoking hot and hilarious fic. Draco's voice and Harry's flustered arousal were both perfect.

Title: Falling Stars, Catching Lightning
Author: [ profile] daftfear
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,609
Content/Warnings: tattoos, tattoo artist!draco, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco’s talent and skill as a tattoo artist are without equal, but when Potter comes in asking for a custom piece that’ll take several sessions to complete, Draco finds his abilities and professionalism tested.
Oh this is fabulously hot! Loved all the tattoos and the electric connection between Harry and Draco.

Title: P.L.O.T. (Part 2) (Part 1 Here)
Author: [ profile] firethesound
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~7,000
Content/Warnings: established relationship, implied bottom!draco, role play, auror!Harry, healer!draco, dirty talk, light bondage
Summary: Harry's idea for helping Draco study turned out so well that Draco's returning the favor.
Funny and sexy update to an awesome fic! Loved the banter and the obvious love between Harry and Draco. Plus some super hot role play and blow job action.

Title: Tooth Fairy Fights and Wisdom Teeth Wars: Draco and Harry's Great Big Dental Adventure
Author: [ profile] icmezzo
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,970
Warning(s): veela!draco, creature!fic, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry never had a visit from the Tooth Fairy when he was a boy, but now that he's had his wisdom teeth pulled, he's tempted to try again. He knows it's silly. Obviously it is. Ridiculous, really. But then, sometimes it feels nice to believe in a little magic.
Oh this fic is just so much fun! Draco and Harry's voices here were great and the whole thing was just so funny and charming. The concept of the tooth fairies was really clever, and I liked the incorporation of veela!Draco. Awesome build-up, and some super great sexy times!

Title: Promises to Keep and sequel Worth Keeping
Author: [ profile] silentauror
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/OFC, background Ron/Hermione, Dean/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,112 and 4,760
Content/Warnings: semi epilogue compliant, infidelity, bottom!draco, implied switching, sort of bonding!fic, the eros affair
Summary: Written for The Eros Affair: Harry to Draco: I promise to go down on you. H/D, DH spoilers.
Really lovely fic with Harry running into Draco while at the playground with his children, and them feeling an instantaneous connection. I really liked Harry's headspace here, his confusion about his attraction to Draco, his strained marriage with Ginny, his love for his children. The relationship development between Draco and Harry is a little fast, but the chemistry between them is scorching. Satisfying ending, and the whole thing felt very believable with both it's ups and downs.

Title: Not Less of Love
Author: [ profile] literaryspell
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, past Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 36,131
Content/Warnings: eighth year, veela!draco, bottom!harry, mates, first time
Summary: The war changed everyone. Harry comes back to eighth year knowing exactly what he wants, and unfortunately for him, so does Draco. Is it just Harry's imagination, or is his worst enemy harbouring a secret? Harry finds out about Draco's new side and definitely doesn’t want to help. But it's not really up to him.
Wonderful eighth year veela!fic. I loved the connection between Draco and Harry, and I thought Draco's Veela instincts were wonderfully described. I liked that there were some bumps along the way to mate-hood, and the ending was lovely.

Title: The Alpha-Omega Bond Series (2 Fics)
Author: favicon Becstar7
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione, Lucius/Narcissa, Lucius/Narcissa/Snape, past Dumbledore/Grindelwald
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 47,051
Content/Notes: AU: Hogwarts Era, AU: Omega!verse, a/b/o/ dynamics, alpha!draco, omega!harry, D/s, heat cycles, knotting, mates, bonding!fic, dub-con, dirty talk, rimming, first time, table!sex, semi-public!sex
Summary: Harry goes into heat unexpectedly. Malfoy stakes his claim.
Super hot a/b/o fic that starts during sixth year and then goes slightly AU. Loved the way the omega!verse dynamics were incorporated into the HP world, and the discussions about alpha/omega dynamics and the laws/views on everything were really interesting. Really enjoyed the connection between Harry and Draco, and the sex was seriously, seriously hot.

[ profile] hp_silencio is such an awesomely creative fest! I love the challenge aspect and how it pushes writers to create something a bit outside of their comfort zone. The authors have to experiment with how to say the things they want to convey without actually saying them and the results are often very moving and powerful. There were a ton of different pairings and ratings to choose from this year and I just picked my three favorites with three different pairings. But I absolutely recommend checking out this year's masterlist and seeing what else has been written.
