Harry/Draco- Post Hogwarts

My favourite Post Hogwarts Harry/Draco stories (in alphabetical order).

Last update 15.09.10 (Check Recent Entries for latest additions.)

  • A Mile in his Shoes by Sansa It's ten years after the war and a chance meeting on a small island changes Harry and Draco from who they've become into who they want to be. Intriguing and captivating story that depicts Harry and Draco as older and wiser and slowly coming to terms with both the events of the war and themselves.

  • A Mix of Snow and Petals by el em en oh pee It's been two years since The Incident, and Harry still hasn't gotten completely over it, still can only get by day-to-day. Enter Draco, who will do anything to reestablish his name in the Ministry and the Wizarding World... Gorgeously subtle and understated story.

  • A Reckless Frame of Mind by Lomonaaeren Draco is a Psyche-Diver, and his newest patient is Auror Potter, who's been a pathological liar for over a year, and has just tried to violently end his own life. Another original and beautifully written story by Lononaaeren. This is the first part and is a somewhat difficult read because of the manner is which Harry is suffering. The sequel is A Determined Frame of Mind

  • A Scrap of Humanity and its sequel The Metamorphosis of Narcissus by HF are superbly written stories about Harry, Draco and Ron a number of years Post Hogwarts and two years after the end of the war. In the first Draco is called out of exile to assist the Ministry and in so doing makes contact with both Ron and Harry. In the second, Ron helps Harry to keep in contact with Draco despite the risks, but all three fall foul of a vengeful Fudge.

  • A Secret History by Warholhp A secret history is a version of history at odds with commonly accepted historical narrative, a history claimed to have been deliberately suppressed or forgotten. Harry Potter, struggling to make a life for himself after the war, is about to discover his. An intense, powerful, disturbing and beautifully written story.

  • A Star and a Stray Cat by winnett Draco wanted what Harry had: family, job, an Animagus form, love. Harry wanted Draco. Unusual, creative and enjoyable story.

  • A Stranger Garden by Jamie2109 Draco Malfoy was never very fortunate when it came to bringing pain and misery to a certain Mr. Potter. His latest plan is no exception. Or is it? Really interesting and original, I very much enjoyed the development of both the story and the relationship over time.

  • A Test of Character by Silent Auror Draco Malfoy is nearly finished his Auror training. However, something comes up in his character testing which may prevent him from qualifying: he is required to befriend an old enemy. Lovely, lovely story.

  • All in the cards by themostepotente A tale of love and heartbreak told in five vignettes. A very clever and original take on the Harry/Draco romance/relationship. The OCs are beautifully drawn and really add to the story.

  • Amalgam by dacro. After Voldemort falls, Harry and Draco return to Hogwarts to teach. When a metal wand and a student with no past put the school in danger of a vampire attack, it's up to Harry, Draco, and the rest of Hogwart's staff (new and old) to survive the day, save the school, solve a mystery, and get lost in all the sexual tension. (Like a Scooby-Doo episode--except with Parseltongue!) Fascinating story with mystery, intrigue, angst and some horror. The events take place all within 24 hours

  • And We Are At Our Apogee by Nicole. Harry doesn't remember. Draco wanted revenge, but it didn't work out that way. A beautifully written, almost dreamy piece from Draco's pov. Harry slowly remembers, and Draco waits, watches and fears.

  • Anything but Ordinary by Bonibaru Seventeen minutes before the hot dog roast, and Harry can't find his trousers. Draco's bored, Harry's angry, and Muggles jump out of perfectly good airplanes. Will true love prevail? A delightful short slightly fluffy story.

  • <Avocados and Pears and Slytherin Sweaters by ms_semicolon No one had ever taught him how to balance a checkbook. No one had ever taught him how to select pears at the market, or how to peel an avocado. The education of a pureblood wizard had left him remarkably ill-equipped to deal with the Real World... Delightful story, gentle and warming.

  • Beneath Boundless Skies by blamebrampton The end of one journey is the start of another. No matter how long it takes for you to make the first step. Original and fascinating story of two parts.

  • Beyond the Lethe by ZS. For Harry, forgetting was easy... A very beautifully written story of Harry, the consequences of his battle with Voldemort and the lengths that those who care about him will go to to 'fix him' and ensure that Voldemort is truly defeated.

  • Beyond the Pale by m jadis. Postwar. With less than 130 days left on his sentence, the velvet-lined walls of Draco Malfoy's prison begin tumbling down, revealing closely guarded secrets and unspoken truths. A very intriguing and original story. I had major problems with Harry's characterisation at first, but the 'twist' was very cleverly done.

  • Black Magic by Moonlight by Beren Harry Potter could find trouble in paradise and when Draco sends him to St Louis for a holiday it's not paradise and there's lots of trouble. With dark magic, vampires, lycanthropes and more, who else could sort it out but Anita Blake? Beren is an excellent author. This story is a crossover with Anita Blake, but you don't need to know the universe at all. Her Harry and Draco are to die for, particularly her strong, young, adult Harry, but Draco is beautifully realised as well.

  • Black Tie Formal, Someone Like You, Untied by SilentAuror are a series of short stories that depict the adult Harry and Draco within a relationship. Draco is annoyed at Harry's tardiness and inability to tie his black tie. Blaise, makes him rethink his attitude. The middle story is a nice reflection on Harry and Draco from Seamus and Blaise's view point.

  • Blood and Brimstone by calenthe fics The Inquisition claims it reforms and cleanses Prodigals of their demonic heritage, but Captain Harry Potter learns that the Church has lost its way and is worse by far than the devils in Hells Below. An absolutely excellent story written for the [profile] hd_career_fair Original, fascinating and absorbing. Set some time aside and read it.

  • Blue Vase by Ivy Blossom. When Harry seems to forget who he is, Draco seizes the opportunity to change history . A gentle tale from Draco's perspective of his observations and thoughts on Harry post war

  • Brave New World by Silent Auror The first post-war Christmas is coming to Grimmauld Place. As the Order of the Phoenix ponders its future, Harry sorts through a maze of war records and quickly begins to see that not everything is as it should be... Very enjoyable story with a great plot. I adored Harry is this, weary, angry, lonely, but still his compassionate self. Draco came over well and I loved his need for Harry to give a fuck about him, and Harry's fumbling and nervous attempts to make good. A sequel is promised.

  • Breakfast in bed by Anjali Since they had started sleeping together, they'd had exactly nine Deep Conversations, all involving Them and where They were going, but Harry always blushed and sidled around certain issues... Anj calls this smutty, smutty fluff, I thought it was delightful.

  • Bulding With worn Out Tools by Lomonaaeren or here Right smack in the middle of a stormy divorce from Ginny, Harry has noreason to be attracted to his Arguer, Draco Malfoy. I mean, it's Malfoy.Nicely written and very intriguing story.

  • Business As Usual by rurounihime Harry's Christmas isn't shaping up the way he'd imagined it would. A lovely and often funny story of misunderstanding in which Draco assumes that business and pleasure can be handled in the same way, while Harry retreats to lick his wounds and wrap his tattered dignity around him when he thinks he is being played for a sucker.

  • Carpe Diem by LaeVus Harry is scarred and fading after the war. As he battles himself and works to make the world better, he faces corruption from those he fought to protect. An intriguing story of the aftermath of war as it affects Harry and those he holds dear. WIP

  • Changing of the Guard by Lomonaaeren or here Need a perfect stranger? Ask Metamorphosis. Harry Potter runs the business secretly and becomes whoever's needed for each occasion. He's not sure whether he should be more surprised, worried, or amused when Draco Malfoy comes to Metamorphosis and requests an actor who can play his boyfriend so that his parents will disown him. Yet Harry has even more dangerous choices after he creates Brian, Draco's "perfect" boyfriend. Draco doesn't know who Brian is, but he's trying to find out - and now so is Harry.Another original and beautifully written story from Lomonaaeren

  • Coming Home by Emphatic Siren Draco's been searching for Harry for seven years. After finding him, he's determined to make him see reason and return to England. However, Draco gets the surprise of his life when he finds that he's the one who changes, and that home is a state of mind. A beautifully written and delightful piece that shows both Harry's resilience and Draco's maturation and change.

  • Contra Mundum by Tigersilver Auror!Harry; PotionsMaster!Draco Thoroughly enjoyable, original and fascinating story.

  • Cure for the Flu by Ivy Blossom. Draco's got the flu, and when Harry and Draco duel some of his flu medication ends up in Harry's ear, making guessed it. Telepathic. Only, it turns out that Draco has the world's most mundane thoughts. Will Harry survive the tedium? Can Snape (or Hermione) cure them? Funny, clever and highly enjoyable. I loved the ending.

  • Damaged by Maayan Three years after Dumbledore's murder, Lord Voldemort has won the war. All those who opposed him are either in hiding or sold as slaves, including the famous Boy Who Lived. Draco Malfoy is not the only one who is disappointed and disillusioned with the outcome, but the return of a lost relative promises to change everything.A very interesting story with a damaged, but still just about functioning, Harry and a Draco who cares about him while secretly lusting over him. The story unfolds slowly as Harry and his friends, who've survived and escaped Voldemort, work together to destroy the Dark Lord and his regime. WIP (Looks like it has been abandoned.)

  • F_a_c_u_l_t_i_e_s Intact by wondersdontcare Most plans are cunning until people start getting eaten: when students go missing inside Hogwarts, four years after the war, Harry is determined to find out why. This was thoroughly enjoyable and often very funny. A kind of bewildering yet exciting ride through Harry's disjointed thoughts. Harry and Draco were wonderful together and the ending was spot on.

  • Faith by Riventhorn If Harry could give Draco a second chance, would he? Two Solitudes How far can faith take you? and The Scent of Lightning Harry thought Slytherin's vision of hatred had died with Voldemort. But what if Slytherin found a way to come back? Would Harry be able to stop him before the magical world was engulfed in terror and chaos again? Are a trio of stories about Harry and Draco and their relationship with their friends and the Wizarding public. They are well written, well plotted and intriguing.

  • For the Public Good by blamebrampton Harry is loaned to the Muggle government to assist relations between the two governments after the London bombings. When his counterpart in the Communications team comes to him with evidence of a plot to expose wizarding Britain, he is all ears. And only in part because the messenger has such a familiar voice. This is wonderful, so very, very funny and brilliantly British!

  • Grim by Mahaliem Post-war, Post-Hogwarts. Harry lived alone. A spare, but beautiful little story.

  • Hand to Hand Combat by Thwax. Voldemort is dead, but his enemy's destruction has cost Harry Potter dearly. Yet, there is more to the consequences than Harry could have imagined. His Muggle upbringing has left him ignorant of his new condition: there is someone who is more than willing to open his eyes just after his seventeenth birthday. A very enjoyable story with both Harry and Draco seeming very in character and lovely use of the rivalry and 'attraction' between them. The sequel is Slight of Hand, I have to admit that I really did not enjoy it and would have happily strangled Draco for being such a complete and utter vindictive bastard to Harry. I'm not fond of heavy hurt and angst however good the writing.

  • Happiness involving a tea house by Nope. Harry just happens to be sitting in a tea house sipping camomile tea when in walks Draco Malfoy. The waitress listens with interest to the ensuing conversation.

  • Hardly Working by 1ightning Harry's desire to work with dragons is a liability, and unfortunately this seems to be Draco's problem.Beautiful written, funny and satisfying story.

  • How do You Mend a Broken Heart? by mahaliem In order to keep custody of his children, Draco needs to find a spouse that will shore up the Malfoy family's tattered reputation. But what starts off as a means to an end gets more complicated when Draco's target reawakens feelings in him that he hasn't had in a long while, and Draco starts to feel alive for the first time since his wife's death. Highly enjoyable and clever story with a lot of wit and some laugh out loud moments.

  • Icarus Rising by Darla Darco is a Draco as Veela story, but it is so much more than that, and so very well written and planned out. I recommend it highly.

  • In A Mirror Dimly by animimares Six years have passed since Harry won the war, opening to him a future as the Hero. However, his victory has been costly and, seeking a new life, he chooses to take desperate measures to start from scratch, leaving everything he knew behind. Now his flight from a life he doesn't want has led him to France only to land him face to face with a ghost from his past. Beautifully written, soulful, evocative story. WIP

  • Interview with a Hero by scoradh At the age of twenty-five, Draco is confronted with the past he'd rather not remember and the questions that still need answering. Still, a little Slytherin guile goes a long way. The only problem is that he might discover more than he bargained on about the people he thought he knew. Clever, intriguing and bitter sweet story that left me wanting more and caring very much for both Harry and Draco as well as a number of other characters.

  • Into the West by Grey Hunter A very different type of story, beautifully written and highly intriguing.

  • Just Another Recollection by Nepenthe Draco's short-term memory is destroyed from Harry's duelling spell, causing him to wake up every morning like it's just the next day. When, in fact, it has been three years. We come in on the morning that Draco wakes up early and finds a Mister Harry Potter in his bed... A bittersweet tale of love, memory and friendship

  • Learning Life Over by Meander or here Harry was a workaholic Auror, and happy that way. He did not ask Malfoy to kidnap him and teach him the finer points of pleasure. This is different, intriguing, well plotted and well written. I can almost imagine an emotionally tired and grieving Harry becoming the man he is in the story, and I can also manage to believe in this obsessed and devious Draco.

  • Left My Heart by Emma Grant. Post-Hogwarts. Auror Draco Malfoy has disappeared, and Harry Potter has been sent to find him. This is about Harry and Draco meeting as adults in Los Angeles. I was very amused and impressed by the wonderful detail Emma provides us for international flight via portkeys and I liked the whole feel of the story. Most enjoyable with a great Hermione. Surrender the Grey or here is the sequel.

  • Life After by Ravengirl. Harry retreats to Grimmauld Place after the war's end. When a white ferret turns up in his garden, things start to get interesting. Thoroughly enjoyable story with great characterisations of Harry and Draco as both ferret and himself. *g* Future Past is the highly enjoyable sequel.

  • Like Glass by Penguin War is over and Voldemort defeated; Harry has been used and thrown away. He lives in Muggle London, lost, confused and destroyed. But Lupin and others want him to return to the wizarding world, and Draco Malfoy is sent out to find him. A very rewarding read.

  • Lilac Cottage by The Ruby Moth Years after the War, Draco is on the run and asks the Order for help. Sent to a safe house, he finds Harry in a remote English cottage. The inevitable happens, fairly quickly. A rather delightful and intriguing post war story with great Harry/Draco interaction.

  • Lonely Moon by eleventy7 More than a decade after the Battle, Harry returns to Hogwarts as a professor and discovers a student with a familiar face and an unexpected past. Slowly developing and absolutely delightful tale with a wonderful Scorpius and Teddy as added bonus.

  • Meaningful Conversation by rurounihime The best conversations happen at the oddest times. Harry Potter comes back to London and finds Draco Malfoy there, ready to pick up where they left off. Post-Hogwarts. A witty exploration of Harry and Draco as adults managing to have sex, but not quite managing to ever talk about anything really important.

  • Momenti Diversi by Zarah In which you'll find the Italian sun, some sexual tension, a reluctant Harry and a persuasive Draco. A beautiful story that really evokes the taste and smell of Italy.

  • Moment by Moment by Thwax. Voldemort and his followers have won the war. The Dark Lord rules Britain and those who oppose him are scattered, some in exile in the USA, and others underground in their own country. Harry Potter is one of those for whom America has become a home, that is until his nemesis is given a promise by those who represent authority for the exiled Britons. The promise will lead Harry into more than he could ever have expected. This is long, clever, original, blood thirsty, horrifying, frustrating and many more adjectives in between. Seen from Harry's view point with a wonderfully depicted and realised romantic relationship between Harry and Draco. Read it!

  • Mutual Interest by Olivia Lupin. The war is over, it's been over for exactly one year, and there is a special event at Hogwarts to celebrate. Harry attends, and runs into an old adversary-turned-ally, Draco Malfoy. There's Ron, Hermione, and Pansy. There's conversation and dessert. And there is the acknowledgement of long-denied attraction and lots and lots of possibilities. I enjoyed this even as I thought that Harry was just a little naive, particularly in his conversation with Pansy. Worth the Wait is the companion piece in Draco's pov (first person) and is perhaps even better than the first story.

  • Not Ours To Command by furiosity When a poisoning case ends up on Harry's desk at the Auror HQ, Harry finds himself backed up against the wall. Figuratively speaking. Features typical Slytherins, a minor parade of house-elves, a toddler-chasing Ron and a rude talking mirror. A very well written murder mystery with a rather Slytherin acting Harry, a pissed off and angry Draco great dialogue, and some wonderful one liners.

  • Now and Then by oldenuf2nobetter Even the death of Voldemort did not end the struggle between good and evil. And even the discovery of a new and unexpected power cannot save Harry from having to deal, once and for all, with an old nemesis. A very different story, no romance and sweetness to be found here between Harry and Draco at all, instead perverted obsession and hate on Draco's part counterbalanced with wonderful friendship and love in the shape of Harry's friends and Ginny. Very angsty and compulsive.

  • Obscurity of Love by mony2208 Haunted by memories of the war, Harry can't move on with his life. He feels left behind and lacking that one thing his mother saved him with all those years ago... Love. With all his friends already finding love, will Harry allow a mysterious, obscured figure into his life and into his heart? A rather delightful story with a beautifully drawn Harry and an intriguing Draco.

  • On the last day of our world by Sansa1 During a detention, Harry and Draco are locked in a strange room overnight. When they escape the next morning, they are alone. Love, angst and adventure abound as they struggle to survive in an empty world. AU, written pre-HBP. A really excellent story that keeps you guessing all the way through. The ending may require some tissues, but is beautiful.

  • Original Sinn by The Autumn Star or here and Draco had a mission. It was simple. Find out who stole the artefact, and get it back from the Muggle fencing it. Not as simple as it sounds, when you both hate each other with a passion, and the Muggle starts falling for your straight partner, who you need to help handle the Muggle Gay Scene. And what happens when you start falling for him too? Interesting and intriguing. WIP

  • Per Solum Lacuna: By Words Alone by Wintermoon2 or here A set of enchanted journals bring solace to two very unlikely lost souls. Whoever said the art of penmanship was lost? I consider this long, involved, intriguing and beautiful story to be one of the classics of H/D fiction.

  • Pixie Light and Pixie Dark by Roses Auror Potter discovers that Muggle technology is a very, very bad thing; of course, Auror Malfoy knew this already. Fascinating story

  • Second Chances by kishijoten. For the first time in over a decade, Harry Potter crosses paths with Draco Malfoy. Both have changed a great deal, but what do those changes mean to them - and to each other? A Post Hogwarts story that allows Harry and Draco to slowly deal with their past history and learn to like and then love each other. However, there are complications in their path towards love, Draco's children and his father.

  • Secrets by Vorabiza Beginning with Draco's unexpected arrival at the Dursleys, Harry's summer becomes filled with activity and many secrets. He generates several unexpected allies as he finds himself actively becoming the leader of the Light side. I enjoyed this long, involved story. Harry was written as very much in charge, yet still a teenager with a teen's propensity for huge swings in emotions and massive self doubt. I was particularly taken with the Draco presented and even found myself able to cope with an heroic Snape. While Ron and Hermione are somewhat sidetracked, their importance to Harry is never denied or negated and I thoroughly enjoyed the twins involvement.

  • Seven Days in June by fourth rose The war is over. The dust has settled; the survivors are moving on. The hero is finally allowed to go on leave. Beautiful story heavily featuring the beauty and antiquity of Vienna and developing an intriguing reunion and relationship between Harry and the previously missing, assumed dead ,Draco Malfoy now a tour guide!

  • Sin for Me by furiosity Harry never expected the peace to last forever. Dumbledore taught him better than that. He just didn't expect the next war to begin less than a month after Voldemort died. Never would he have dreamed that it would be a man's personal war against a system. The wizarding world was that system, and Harry was that man. Intriguing, interesting and highly original story. Plus anyone that can make use of Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics in a Harry Potter story has my respect. *g*

  • Snakes and Ladders by Alvira. Sixteen years after he last clapped eyes on the Boy Who Lived To Be A Thorn In Draco Malfoy's Side, Draco is filling Snape's old shoes with aplomb. History, though, has a nasty habit of repeating itself. Draco has his comfortable existance turned topsy-turvy with the appearance at Hogwarts of Harry's son, who turns out to be able disrupt Draco's life with as much competency as his father. I really liked Wystan (Harry's son) and thoroughly enjoyed his encounters with Draco, while the Harry/Draco episodes were wonderfully in character and full of so much UST it was great. Highly enjoyable story with a great ending.

  • Special Gifts by oldenuf2nobetter Ten years after a devastating accident costs Harry Potter the love of his life and leaves him with life altering injuries, he is asked to return to Hogwarts to help the child of an old friend, with the help of an old adversary. Very intense interesting and enjoyable read with a very scary Hermione.

  • Still Life by Analin or here The portraits at Hogwarts always seemed happy. Harry wonders if he is the only one with such an annoyance at being half there after his body has gone. He doesn't want to still be thinking. He doesn't want to be sitting in his chair, chin in hand, staring out at the crying visitors to the memorial, wishing he were dead. Except he is already dead. A very clever, intriguing and thought provoking read.

  • The Argument by Flutesong or here The Argument wasn't about how Harry Potter could have grown up to prefer intimate relationships with other men. The Argument was, of course, because when Harry finally seemed to settle in a relationship, it was with Draco Malfoy. I know of Flutesong from the X-Files M/K fandom and love her work. This one is written in one of her narrative styles with minimal dialogue, but she knows how to pace the story to keep the interest going and I really enjoyed it.

  • The Copper Cauldron by Newshound. Draco thought his life had ended after being imprisoned in Azkaban. It will take the love of the man he regards as his greatest enemy, the faith of his most trusted confidante, and the hope imparted by a beloved child to convince him that his life has truly just begun. A long, involved, occasionally angsty story that is a rather compelling read. Harry and Draco seem very in character such that I want to hit Draco around the head at times. *g*

  • The Good Guys by Frayach ni Cuill or here The Second Voldemort War is limping into its fourth year, and the Forces of Shining Light are slowly turning into the Forces of Expedient Grey. When Draco Malfoy is captured red-handed trying to sell an illegal potion to a clerk at Borgin and Burkes, he is handed over to the Department of Essential and Necessary Truth's newest interrogator. And as soon as he sees Malfoy, bound and waiting in his cell, Harry Potter knows he's in trouble. Deep trouble. Bloody brilliant and very, very clever.

  • The Goodness of Their Hearts by Taratext, Malfoy Security Inc. is hired when Chudley Cannons' star Seeker Harry Potter starts receiving disturbing letters. I read this for the second time recently and was reminded what an very enjoyable read it is. Post Hogwarts of course, seen from Draco's pov and rather intriguing.

  • The Last Dragon Thief by antyureff The war ended three years ago, and the wizarding world snuggles into a post-Restoration era. London is a cheery place again, except for Harry Potter. Among his peers, he's the source of gossip and malapert speculation. Eager for an understanding of how he became so antagonised, Harry accepts an offer from Draco Malfoy to explore a macabre tie to the past. But Malfoy is more enigmatic than ever. And Harry, along with Ron and Hermione, are tossed into a mystery that takes them back to the days when Albus Dumbledore was a young man, into the Other Worlds of the Northern Elves, and into the very core of Light and Dark Magic. Fascinating and beautifully written WIP

  • The Pendulum of Choice by Rushlight The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. Harry, from a defeated universe, travels through parallel universes to find somewhere he can live again and be of some use. This is not exclusively H/D, but a number of pairings as well as none. The different realties Rushlight creates are very clever and intriguing, the different Harrys all surprisingly similar in many respects.

  • The Potter Files by nqdonne Private investigator, wizard, thorn in many people's sides. Harry Potter's a jack of all trades. A very enjoyable and clever mix of Harry Potter and The Dresden files with Draco as Murphy and Snape as Bob!

  • The Price We Pay For Wings by frayach Books have the power to shape young lives. At least that is the hope of the anonymous author of a best-selling series about a Muggle boy and his best friend on the eve of a world war. But stories do more than just shape the future: they can redress the wrongs of the past as well. But only as long as it's not too late. A heartbreaking, but oh so beautiful story.

  • The Simple Joy of Living by mahaliem When Viktor is attacked, Harry and Draco work together to find the culprit. An absolutely wonderful stroy full of twists and turns and with a delightfully manipulative and snarky Draco and a competent, but slightly oblivious Harry, plus Narcissa and Lucius on fine form. A real pleasure to read.

  • The Venice Job by nishizono Harry Potter was one of the youngest Aurors in history. He was the Boy Who Lived, and the Boy Who Lived Again. He loved Guinness and Quidditch, and hated pineapple. He wrote letters to Hagrid every Thursday, and on Sundays, he visited Hermione and Ron. Harry Potter was also not gay. Funny and highly enjoyable story.

  • The Warlockby MysticShadow. Harry met the fury in the ice-blue eyes of the Warlock with defiance. He was Draco's prisoner, but his slave he'd never be. Yet Harry could not know how Draco ached to posses his body - or that the world's fate will rest on the strength of their bond. I'm enjoying this, very slow to be updated, AU WIP. Draco is perfectly depicted in his icy calm and power, while Harry is beautifully written and while lacking Draco's knowledge and influence, is certainly not powerless, nor quiet in his defiance and anger.

  • The Waters of March by Duinn Fionn. Voldemort's final victim resides with the other spell-damaged wizards in St. Mungo's Hospital. Harry suffers survivor's guilt and finds an unusual beta. Cream-colored knee-high leather boots make a brief appearance. This is beautiful, the slow development of the relationship between Harry and Draco is realistic and delightful to read. It also has some wonderful moments of humour and a nicely depicted Ron.

  • The World of the Living by fourth rose A traumatised war hero and a convicted criminal under the roof of an eccentric journalist make for a rather odd ensemble, but Luna has never had a problem with oddities as long as they make sense. Superb story, with a beautifully characterised Luna.

  • That Veela Thing by empathic siren Fluffy, post-war H/D - that's all - and extra points for veela!boy too! Clever and delightful fic.

  • Therefore I Am by Flutesong Lovely, gentle story about Harry's struggle with his fame and the consequences, his relationship with Draco along side fascinating Snape interludes and a wonderful ending.

  • Things that seem by Maeglin Yedi or as Starkiller A potion gone wrong. A desperate wish. A new future. And   Harry's desperate thoughts as he tries to come to terms with what is happening to him are often very funny. An intriguing 'what if' story with a great ending. Well worth a read

  • Tissue of Silver by Fearless Diva, Draco Malfoy's life is threatened and Auror Harry Potter is sent to protect him. Draco is presented as a spy for the order, also he is a reformed, if not particularly liked or trusted, Death Eater. His confidant is Snape, who is the only one to know that Draco has the hots for Harry Potter, but first, he has to survive, and make friends with Potter.

  • Under the Ivy by Coffejunkie It is impressive how much you can learn about someone by simply sharing a few rooms. They don't spend time together, not really, but Harry still knows that Malfoy prefers raspberry jam over strawberry, that he hums along to the Wireless when he thinks no one is around, and that his leg is bothering him more than usual when the temperatures drop below freezing. A beautifully written, heart-warming story that shows Harry and Draco, both wounded and changed following the war, learning to understand and love each other.

  • Unlimited Partnership by rickey a Divorce sucks even if your gay and your marriage had the sole purpose of producing an heir. His old plan in tatters, Draco begins to formulate a new plan. Harry Potter becomes his partner and Draco is definitely, most definitely, not in love. Well written and highly entertaining and original story.

  • Volunteers by Anna Fugazzi or here Written for livejournal's Beltane Fic Exchange: Harry, Draco, and a volunteer position that was supposed to be quick and easy. Beautiful story interweaving a history of Beltane along with an awakening of Harry and Draco's desire for each other. The sequel is Ember to Ember

  • Walking the Line by Silent Auror. Sixth year is over and Draco Malfoy is on the run. The war is on and an unwanted assignment is forced upon him by the only people he trusts - and a one-time arch-enemy just may be out to kill him. This is very well written and intriguing as we watch the relationship change and evolve between Harry and Draco through Draco's eyes. Alongside the beautifully detailed relationship is an exciting story of the chase to destroy the horcruxes and finally beat Voldemort and it is a very good and rewarding read.

  • We are Legend by Vaysh Eighty years into the future, Voldemort won. Harry Potter is Portkeying persecuted Muggles out of London to Hogwarts, when he encounters Draco Malfoy, a powerful phoenix Animagus fighting on the Death Eaters' side. Stunningly beautiful story.

  • We'll always have Paris by Katherine. Time passes and things change. Sometimes we just need to forgive and forget in order to move on. A beautifully written, descriptive and evocative short story that left me feeling wistful, but strangely content. This Kiss is the sequel.

  • Welcome to the Real World byIamtheLizardQueen. A Harry/Draco romance, set post-Hogwart's in muggle London. Includes red mittens, linoleum, witty retorts, angst, love, dance clubs, strange friends, cooking shows, and coffee. This is a romance, but is beautifully written with a great plot and a wonderful real beginning and superb descriptions of Draco learning to cope in the muggle world.

  • When, Not Yet, Hold On, Now by zionsstarfish is an interesting study of Draco's insecurities, pride, hopes and fears in a future where he and Harry are friendly, sort of.

Frustratingly she appears to have deleted her story from her LJ, and the archives. She has a couple of hpfics on her LJ, but obviously doesn't want this one read for whatever reason. I guess you could mail her and ask. Do let me know if she has it elsewhere.

thanks, i think I might give that a try as it seems to be on quite a few rec lists.

"Pixie Light And Pixie Dark" looks to be a broken link. :\

Thank you for recing all these fics. So far, I've only read a handful of Drarry Fanfics because I'm more into Snarry, but recently I want to explore the Drarry-fandom as well. Since I love post-Hogwarts settings this list is like a juwel to me. I will read through this list. Putting this to my "memories". Thanks a lot!

Lol, it seems a lot of people immerse into the Sherlock fandom. Is it this great? I haven't even seen the movie.

Thank you so very much for reccing "Lomonaaeren" to me. She is great! I like almost all of her summaries. I've read "Knowing the Price and the Value" to get an idea of her writing and it was fantastic! Now, I'm in the middle of "Bloody But Unbowed" and it's equally awesome. I'm in awe. Such great reading pleasure. Once again, thank you for pointing me in her direction!

Thank you for letting me in on Sherlock. :D Maybe I should watch it too. I feel for you for having to wait over 24 months. :( This is bad.
