Hot Rec:

Changing Tides by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~110,000 words)
Summary:Draco has spent half of his life spouting the things his father has taught him without much thought about how he feels about what he says. When he unexpectedly comes face to face with the Dark Lord, he grapples with the harsh realities of the world and struggles with his changing views on life. Instead of doing what’s expected of him fifth year, he joins Dumbledore’s Army and learns how to defend himself, how to make his own choices, and how he can be something greater than his father’s example as he grows into his own man rather than his father’s shadow. The choices he makes change both his and Harry’s fates, intertwining their paths until they converge.

The Light that is Blinding Me by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~23,000 words)
Summary:After Flourish and Blotts stop stocking the books of Harry’s favourite author, he is directed to a queer bookshop and discovers it’s owned by none other than Draco Malfoy, who has more in common with Harry than either of them realise.

Shibboleths by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~110,000 words)
Summary: Muggle Immersion co-Professor Harry Potter spends his days hanging with his son, reading to his "dog," teaching magical kids about the internet with his cousin Dudley, and irritating Snape’s portrait. He’s understandably annoyed when his cosy life is interrupted by the Headmistress hiring on Draco Malfoy to be Hogwarts’ new Ancient Magical Cultures and Spellcasting professor. But then the explosion happens, and it turns out they'll all need Malfoy's knowledge if they want the magical world to survive.

[info]snarry_readerThe Essential Snarry Reader
The Snarry Reader is a general resource for fans of the Snape/Harry pairing. It consists of a series of lists of Snape/Harry fanfiction, fanart, meta and resources. These lists are neither exactly recs list nor comprehensive pairing lists; they are lists of Snarry fic and art the mods have enjoyed. The community started in 2005, the last update was in 2015. Although it is no longer an active community, it is an awesome resource.

Hot Rec:

dirtynumbangelboy by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~39,000 words)
Summary:After Harry’s unfortunate encounter with his ex, Draco Malfoy makes him a proposition. Draco wants his parents to stop matchmaking him and Harry wants to make his ex jealous. All they need to do is simply pretend they’re in love. Problem is… Draco already is.
The Claiming of Grimmauld Place by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~74,000 words)
Summary:When Grimmauld Place begins fighting against Harry’s ownership of it, he decides he needs help to train the historic home — but little does he expect that it’ll be Malfoy who’s most suitable for the challenge. However, as Malfoy and Harry get closer, Harry comes to understand that expectations aren’t always the best path by which to guide his heart — and in the process learns just what is needed to make a house a home.
No One But You by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~11,000 words)
Summary:Harry and Draco are friends. More than friends. Close friends. Which might be a little annoying for… well, everyone else around them.
For the Greater Good by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~62,000 words)
Summary:When Harry and Draco discover they’ve been bonded to one another, neither one of them is prepared for the secrets they slowly begin to uncover.Together, they learn that they can’t escape their past, or the things that have been left hidden there, and that sometimes the only way to move forward is to look back.
Blood and Fire by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~45,000 words)
Summary:Harry has spent the last twelve years in Romania, not returning to England as often as he knows he should. It's complicated. But when Ginny asks him to be her best man and help her plan her wedding, he can't say no. Having a reckoning with his choices, with himself, won't be easy. To say nothing of seeing Draco again.
Heartlines by Currently Anonymous (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; NC-17, ~72,000 words)
Summary:Harry never expected he’d end up chipping away at his virginity while wandless and bonded to Malfoy in Northern Europe.
He never expected that would turn out to be the least surprising thing to happen while out on their training expedition in the middle of nowhere, either.
