Blood and Nails by Calmardaa
link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1192468/1/

Summary: Would you kill for it? Die for it? What would you do for love and would it do in return? Would it save you from yourself?

This story has one of the most unique plots I've ever seen in the fandom. It is a bit more Gothic-like and dark for a post-war HPDM, but it really shows a different spectrum of possible results of traumatic events. It's mostly a mystery-thriller, but I would't let that scare people off. It's a really captivating story, and the the final twist was completely unexpected and literally made my jaw drop in surprise.

Fic suggestion:
Of the Heart's Fullness and Of the Coming Emptiness by tout_a_coup
A really exceptional eighth year fic, with wonderful characterizations and legitimate character development to boot (on central char Harry's part). It lacks schmoop or doesn't even have much romance (though it has plenty of sex) but in a very satisfying way that rings true and somehow even one that still makes you sigh and clutch your heart!

The Lip-Lock Jinx by cassisluna

Because it's adorable and features a uniquely brilliant plot, a wonderful pace at which the relationship between Harry and Draco develops naturally, and really clever dialogue. It's definitely one of my recent faves. <3

I have to second this amazing fic. It's got so much heart, humor, romance and a bit of angst. Oh, and there's a plot, too. Love it!!

Let the Poets Pipe of Love by bookshop

Well, the obvious is that it is hot and steamy! But it touches on other issues that were interesting to read about, especially since Draco thinks he is having sex with someone who is polyjuiced into Harry, not the actual man. Very fascinating story.

I'd like to suggest a fic I read over at HD_careerfest sometime ago. It's one of my all time favs and it really highlights everything I LOVE about h/d!

Art suggestion:
Bound in Passion [1] & [2] by yukipon

A fabulous 'before & after' art. The expressions on their faces alone could tell the entire story. But wait, there's more! There's also this short fic that inspired the art.

I was thinking about this for a long time, but I just can’t resist. I just need to squee about this one fan fiction I read few weeks ago. XD

Reparations by Sara’s Girl.
Summary: Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places.

Foundations by Sara’s Girl. (sequel to Reparations)
Summary: When one door closes, another one opens... with a bit of a push. Life, love and complications.

Why I love them so much? It’s hard to tell one reason why, I just love them and that’s all. This fan fiction has very unique plot and slow build up of H&D relationship that makes everything look so natural and just the way it should be. It’s different and very interesting. Healer Harry, Draco that’s working in Chem Dep, some nice new characters (Harry’s colleagues, Draco’s friends, etc.), new unexpected friendships, evil peacock, talking cupboards, not-dog and so much more. I’m really not good at summaries, but I honestly think that everyone should read this fic, it’s a masterpiece. Every now and then since I finished reading sequel I catch myself thinking “I wish she would write 3rd part.” haha This fic just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside whenever I read it. <3

I second those by sara's girl :)

Ferocious Determination, Insufficient Deliberation, and a Slightly Wrong Destination by faithwood.

This story is hilarious! In addition it is fluffy and cute and hot. Very hot and did I mention cute? It is just a must read!

Here's one of my favorite fics, don't know if it would work for your purposes or not:

Take a Sad Song and Make it Better by femmequixotic

I love mature and messed-up Harry and Draco in this fic, and the scene where they finally come together is one of the hottest I ever read, over and over and over. It's got a great plot too.

I have a suggestion for the structure of your fest, too. When you announce the fic I suggest you go ahead and just start with the commenting right away. I don't have a good enough memory to read a fic on Saturday and then start commenting on it two days later. But it's you're comm, and I think this is very fun the way it is. What I'm doing now is just waiting for you to send out the second announcement that it's time to comment before I start reading the fic in question. But sometimes I have more time for this stuff on the weekends, so starting the comment period earlier might help other people too. Just an idea!!
26th-Feb-2011 05:23 am (UTC)
Thanks for your suggestion! We like to do the discussion parts on Monday, because we like for everyone to have time to read over the weekend and culminate thier thoughts by Monday.

I agree with you though! Sometimes I don't really remember what exact parts I wanted to squee over in particular, so here's what I've been doing:

I open up a word doc or something, and then copy and paste my fav quotes and then at the end, I write up a squee/comment/discussion/review of the story overall just as if I were commenting on the story just then, you know? And then on Mondays I just open it up and copy and paste and voila! Its' squee time :D

Hopefully that helps, dearie!

Some of the fics seem long, so I'm scouring my list for brilliant short ones. I really liked this one:

Steam by melusinahp

The imagery and the dynamics are really spectacular and reminded me so much of why I love our boys. The attraction of opposites and how certain mixtures are volatile but necessary.

27th-Feb-2011 08:48 pm (UTC)
I'm making another suggestion, because, well, I can do whatever I want XD jk jk. but seriously, this fic is TOO GOOD <33333

Portrait of a Headmaster by silentauror

The fic is sweet and sexy and freakin' awesomely written. It's epilogue-compliant (somewhat) and well--its hard to explain. here's the summary: When Death Eaters find their way into the Hogwarts portrait collection, the Headmaster is forced to work with the Head Auror to find a way to protect the castle, including their own children.

I have a few art suggestions

Pensive by stellamoon

I think stella is so incredably talented that she should be squeed over her Draco and Harry *rock* my world. Pensive is just Draco but done so well I gasped and offered her my first born for this amazing work. :)

This is my actual favorite drawing of hers

Coming Home

The colors she used and her interpretation of H/D in such a tender loving moment just makes me squeee *happy sighs*

Stella is such a talent a true artist among the best :)

Art suggestion:

Electrical Storm

by pink_mint

This is simply the most gorgeous art I have ever seen it is stunning perfection. She is a H/D goddess and I'm in awe of her talent. The colors she used and the look in Draco's eyes made me gasp out loud. This is NC-17 for graphic oral sex but sweet Mary mother of God this is beyond sexy and powerful.

Everyone should squeee over this artist.

Fic suggestion:

Unkissed kisses and songs never sung by femmequixotic

This is the most amazingly brilliant H/C story I have ever read it is just beautiful. This is not fluff but such a hopeful ending. It brought me to tears and that is rare for a fic to drag emotion out of me. Their love story shows what you are willing to do for the one you love more than your own self. When that person is your world and something happens...How do you react?

Harry is strong,loyal and funny

Narcissa and Lucius are brilliant parents that stand behind their son in whatever he needs to do.

If you love someone like H/D do in this story you are truely blessed.

Savage by marguerite_26

In a post-war world that lives in fear and ignorance of werewolves, Draco Malfoy has taken every step to keep his condition hidden. When the delicate balance of his life shatters in a single moment, it is Harry Potter alone standing in his defence.

I have not read a fic that I love more this year. Its amazing!
