Songspiration: Genie in a Bottle - Christina Aguilera
Title: Bottle of Smoke
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Rating: M
Warning(s): Some mention of mental illness and memory loss. One very dubconny dream.
Epilogue compliant? No
Word Count: ~ 15, 500
Summary: Harry Potter serves tea at the Ministry. He has always served tea at the Ministry. He certainly isn’t the sort of person to stumble upon a conspiracy, let alone acquire an irritable blue genie.

Why you want to read this: because it's a fun read. it's hilarious and lighthearted (despite the goings on) and really just rather wonderful. It'll make you laugh and smile and there's really nothing more I'd ask for.

Songspiration: Immortals - Fall Out Boy
Title: It Takes a Village
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco and implied Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC17
Warning: Original characters.
Epilogue compliant? Hahaha... no.
Word Count: 24,197
Summary: Eighth year isn’t exactly going to plan. Harry is definitely not running away, Draco is definitely not impressed, and it’s almost definitely not going to stop raining.

Why you want to read this: this one i just want to hug. it's lovely and sweet and funny, and I want to curl up in it forever.

Songspiration: Dirty Little Secret - All American Rejects
Title: Harry Potter’s Dirty Little Secrets
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: Harry Potter has a few secrets…
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): Done in the style of PostSecret entries, so I hope it makes sense. Flangst/drama, ooc-ness, crackish I listened to a lot of Taylor Swift while crafting this and it shows. :)
Epilogue compliant? haha, no
Art Medium: scrapbook materials

Why you want to check this out: because it's brilliant! it's a really cool idea and executed rather well. i'm pretty fond of alternative ways or untraditional ways of doing fanart, and this hits all my buttons.

Songspiration: LUCKY by Britney Spears
Title: He's So Lucky (He's A Star)
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco [Charlie/Original Male Character, Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Other Male Character]
Rating: ~R
Warning(s): First person point of view. Infidelity implied (not between Harry/Draco). In the closet-scenario. Pining. Clueless and obviously in love (with each other) characters. Random references to Muggle technology.
Epilogue compliant? Not really.
Word Count: ~21,500
Summary: Potter has everything he could ever ask for. The perfect life. Then why does he look so sad when no one else is looking? Except for Draco, because Draco’s always looking.

Why you want to read this: I smiled the whole way through this :) draco is wonderful and i really love his voice here, and his love for photography. slow-burn, with a wonderfully mature and grown up draco.,

Songspiration: Imagine Dragons – Demons
Title: An Aching Soul
Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, suggestions of Harry/various nameless OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): Mentions of using sex and drugs as a coping mechanism
Epilogue compliant? Not a chance.
Word Count: ~15,000
Summary: I can’t help but wonder if Potter’s really as fine as he claims to be. There’s something strange about seeing the vanilla hero of the wizarding world eye-fucking someone across a crowded bar before slipping off into the shadows - Draco Malfoy escapes to the Muggle world to avoid his parents, memories of the war and Harry Potter. However, some things prove harder to escape than others as Draco realises when his favourite Muggle haunt is rudely invaded by a post-war Harry who is struggling to cope with grief, growing up and the battle with his inner demons.

Why you want to read this: This was so good I'm not sure I know how to explain :D I just, love everything. Draco's voice was phenomenal and I loved the twisty road they took to get to know each other and, eventually, get together. But seriously. I loved Draco here. He seemed so grounded throughout it all, even when he wasn't.

Songspiration: True Love - Pink
Title: It Must Be (True Love)
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): None
Epilogue compliant? Nope
Word Count: ~45,700
Summary: No amount of playing by the rules has made Harry's life any easier, and Malfoy has matured but also hasn't. They are who they are, and though they try, neither one can fully change.

Why you want to read this: i loved everything about this fic. :D slow-burns are my favourite, and the subtle ones are the best - and oh, this was wonderful. i love loopy draco (when drugged/drunk), and harry's insistence that he's not a senior auror. his resignation to the fact people keep saying he is is hilarious. and draco's house elves, haha. i wonder if they'll ever warm up to harry. there's a lovely cast of sidecharacters as well, and overall this was just so...good? very solid, very thorough, very enjoyable and so, so good.

Oh man, I haven't had much time to read, but there have been some lovely fics this year!

SO MUCH FIC. And it's so good! (I'm only reading the long ones, haha.)

Honestly, other than the Luna one, the fics have vanished into a haze for me. I feel like I'm coming out of a coma or something this summer, honestly. I can't have read more than 5, anyway. :/

Maybe it's just... I dunno, being adult-y? I know that now that I'm finish with work for a bit, it feels like I have nothing to do. Nothing. Which is hard to face and makes me sad. I just joined this site called Meetup that organizes meetings based on interests (like hiking, book clubs, etc). So maybe that will help me find something to do. Otherwise... I dunno, argh. I want to wake up!
