Masterlists and Weekly Round-ups:

[info]mini_fest posted the Mini Fest Week #2.
[info]rs_small_gifts posted the Week 3 Round Up.

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.
