"1000 Points from Gryffindor
by orphan account
AO3 Author
    The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry's suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy's hoodie because seriously Hermione who gave that to him and is he wearing it just to torment me? This is ridiculous!

    Everyone always forgets about the Merpeople. So did Harry until the day his, Lee’s, and Hermione’s Portkeys land at Reagan National Airport’s Arrivals dais. He’s just had to leave a job he loves and pack his entire life—literally—into his luggage.

The one with mermaids and DC.

    No witnesses, no sign of a break-in, wards intact and a missing person. Just what happened to Draco Malfoy? Was he even still alive? All Harry's got to go off of is a wrecked house, a silent painting, and a journal full of private emotions. Is it enough? Or will Malfoy remain a mystery unsolved?
    Completed reading this on 20 June 2021 ... jury is still out.

"Azoth"

Archive of Our Own
    Now that Harry is back at Hogwarts with Hermione for eighth year, he realises that something’s missing from his life, and it either has to do with Ron, his boggart, Snape, or Malfoy. Furthermore, what, exactly, does it mean when one’s life is defined by the desire to simultaneously impress and annoy a portrait? Harry has no idea; he’s too busy trying not to be in love with Malfoy to care.

"Bashing a Queer"
by Nigel Gordon
    "Oh, my God," Barry exclaimed, as he watched the new boy mince across the yard and into the school entrance, "I don't believe it."
    "Did you see what he was wearing?" Grant asked, not certain he could believe his eyes. Nobody, but nobody could be that stupid; everybody knew how Barry felt about queers after one of them had made a pass at him. And everybody knew that Barry was the boss around here.
    "Yes, a fucking Gay Rainbow badge. He's going to get it. This is going to be fun."
    "Careful Barry, you're on your last warning about bullying."
    "I know, but I'm not putting up with queers around here. We'll have to take him off school premises. Paul, find out where he lives." The fourteen-year-old, the youngest of the Q boys, nodded, wondering why Barry always picked him for that sort of job.

Many of the characters in this story were introduced in “Chronicles of an Academic Predator,” “1968,” “The Land Whore,” “Be Rad,” “Man in Motion,” “A Summer Love,” and “If It Fits.” You don't have to read them before this story, but it will give you a deeper insight into those characters and their pasts.

"Bloody But Unbowed"
    Nothing in Harry's life has gone the way he expected, and that includes being the mediwizard assigned to treat Lucius Malfoy. But he's Harry; he can deal with this. And he can deal with Draco Malfoy's nonsensical flirting, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The Burning Times"
    At the end of the War, wizarding governments worldwide have reconstructed themselves from the ground up. People from the wizarding world now find themselves co-existing with those from the Muggle world and vice versa. Draco Malfoy finds himself appointed an Ambassador by the new Minister of Magic, Albus Dumbledore, and Harry Potter is teaching Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts. This is where life as they know it ceases to exist.     When Draco is sent away to a far off land, he lands himself in a world of trouble and is sent to a Muggle prison. Stripped of his ability to perform magic, and denied any contact with the outside world, Draco finds himself unable to even contact the new husband he left behind. But Draco’s woes are nothing compared to those of his husband’s.

"Cloak and Dagger" Series
by Lomonaaeren
Archive of Our Own
    Draco and Harry are partners in the Socrates Corps, with a mandate to hunt down the twisted, the Darkest of the Dark wizards- and standing permission to kill them once cornered.

"CONTROL and KAOS"
An author at Awesomedude
by David Buffet
    That was why EJ had suggested he switch to boys -- at least for the next one. Girlfriends were great, EJ had said, but they were very high-maintenance, and this was a year that was too busy to be worrying about stupid shit like that. They were seniors. This year was supposed to be fun!
    "Boys would probably be easier," he had said. "Make them cum and they're happy." Topher laughed at this, pointing out that he was much the same. "That's the whole idea," said EJ. "You don't have to spend all your time worrying about what they're thinking or what they want. Girls are fucking baffling."

"The Cowardly Lion (A Drarry AU: Book One)"
by hermione_writes
(No longer online)
    Draco Malfoy has played Quidditch since he was a little boy. He's been tutored in Potions since he was little by his godfather, Severus Snape. He's been told all about the savage oaf Hagrid, how Muggle-borns are inferior to purebloods like himself, and how blood-traitors are simply horrible human beings. All Draco knows is a miserable life with parents who don't show their love very often, a father who enjoys cursing him as punishment, and "friends" who are more like minions. Draco's room is so big it feels empty most of the time. Draco has never been the most courageous of wizards.
    Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He's never worn a cloak of invisibility, befriended a giant, or helped hatch a dragon. All Harry knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had birthday party in eleven years.
    But what will happen when Draco gets Sorted into Gryffindor, Harry refuses to believe Draco's a bad person, a Muggle-born girl is smarter than Draco was told any Muggle-born could ever be, a blood-traitor is understanding of Draco's situation, the only friends Draco ever had turn into bullies, and Draco realizes that maybe he has never held the same beliefs as his father?
    Note: Apparently "HarryPotterFanFiction.com" has gone dark. That's where this story was originally housed. I'll keep searching. There is a story by Lomonaaeren, but the plot is very different.

"The Extracurricular Series" and "The Cicatrix Cycle"
by Ivy Blossom
    Extracurricular One - For no apparent reason, the answer to all of life's crises and problems is for Harry and Draco to shag madly. If you need to stop a war, prevent global destruction from an oversized meteor, or you've just lost your best earrings, give Harry and Draco a key to the astronomy tower and watch the sparks fly.
    Extracurricular Two - After Harry and Draco learn that their sweet, sweet lovin' can save the world and solve any concievable problem, they learn that there is a strange side effect to that activity. Can the population of Hogwarts keep the boys from getting pregnant?
    The Cicatrix Cycle - Draco was already far gone on Harry before Haven started, so I figured we might as well have a look and see how that happened. - First Chapter is Night Swimming.

"Fire"
by Str8mayb
    Me and my big mouth. I just had to get all full of self pity and whine to my friend Linda that my life was over and all a waste. You see, I’m a 27-year-old ex-school teacher. Yeah, ex. Last summer while visiting my sister in Birmingham, Alabama a drunk driver ran off the road and three yards later stopped on me. My back is now a mess. I set off all the alarms in airports and courthouses. The up side is the drunk was old money so now I’m new money (well I can live comfortably anyway). Anyway back to my big mouth. I’m complaining that I have this nice four bedroom house (was my grandparents) with a nice piece of land and I can’t do anything.
    Linda says she can fix that if I want. So, BIG MOUTH me, tells her to go for it. A mere two weeks later she has me set up as a foster parent. No little ones just ages 9 and up. Since I’m a single male, no girls. When Linda had everything all legal, she gave me a plaque that says “Lee’s Boys Club.” We had a good laugh at that.
    I’m not laughing now, I’m sweating. Tuesday afternoon the middle of October and Linda just called, and is bringing over my first foster son.
    I started reading this story on Nifty, then I discovered AC's Corner Cafe and there is a ton of shit going on over there. Tons of authors and tons of stories. I'm a new fan!

"Forgive Those Who Trespass"
by Lomonaaeren
Horror/Adventure
    Harry was convinced he had an ordinary, if inconvenient, life. Then Ron and Hermione vanished into the Department of Mysteries. And it seems the only person who might know where they are is a mute Draco Malfoy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Harry Potter and the Power of Reverse Psychology"
by The Sentient Duck
    It's yet another fic where Harry faces down that Machiavellian scoundrel Albus Dumbledore, learns he's the heir to more houses than he can shake a stick at, discovers he's been manipulated all his life, and starts taking control of his own destiny. Or so it would appear. But looks, especially when magic is involved, can be deceiving.

by zeitgeistic
Archive of Our Own
    Part One - Harry Potter is rescued from the Dursleys and spends the summer with his god…father? This is the prequel to The Hush of War. Beta'd by giesha_kitten/laureen.
    Part Two - Voldemort has made a bargain with Harry to stop killing muggles and muggle-borns (when at all possible, of course) in exchange for Harry's cooperation. While Harry thinks he's using the time to find a way to defeat the Dark Lord, he will realize that Voldemort is always one step ahead, and so long as he isn't killing anyone...what's the big deal? He has bigger things to worry about now, anyway. Includes dementors, pureblood culture, the prophecy, what exactly happened with Lily's sacrifice, magical breakthroughs, children Death Eaters, and portraits of family.

"In a Heartbeat"
by Grasshopper
Part of the "Just Hit Send" Series
    "David made wrong choices and then have to live with them. He had let people arrange his life, from his job to his sexuality, and the frustration of it all was eating him alive."
    Marcus slammed his laptop shut. What a bunch of whining drivel. He didn't want to write about himself. There was nothing to say. If he kept this up much longer, he'd never ever get his novel written. He was just putting his frustrations on the screen. No one wanted to read about his screwed up life.

"It Always Rains"

    Dark conspiracies, unlikely friendships, and the endless weeping of the sky. Harry must follow a trail of clues to not only save his friend, but perhaps even the British wizarding world.
    "I started writing this story pre-Deathly Hallows and began posting this story in 2009, years and years ago, so it's AU to an extent. This is how I envisioned the final battle, the Horcrux hunt, and the lives these brave men eventually led."

College
Thanks Don!
    It is Saturday mid-morning and I'm standing in front of Roberts Hall, which is suppose to be my temporary home as I begin my college education. I'm not pleased. It's suppose to be a temporary residence, because my Dad and Brad have decided I am going to pledge to Delta Phi Delta and once I become a member, move into the Fraternity House. It's a tradition. Dad has been a DPD since he attended this college and Brad is currently a Brother, starting his third year of studies.
    I'm not pleased, because I have no intention of pledging DPD as is expected and I had anticipated Roberts Hall would become my permanent 'home away from home'. The problem is simple. It turns out this is a jock hotel and I don't want to live in a jock hotel, which is also one of the reasons I don't want to pledge DPD, the best known and most esteemed Frat for athletes on the east coast.

"Just a Matter of Time"
Gracerene
by Gracerene
Post Hogwarts/Time Travel
    Draco's in a bit of a rut. He's nearing forty, divorced, and he still can't figure out how to make his Time Turner reconstruction work. He's bored, he can admit it, so he's not nearly as concerned as he should be when his pet project malfunctions and sends him twenty years into the past. That is, until he ends up relying on a nineteen-year-old Harry Potter for help and starts developing some very inconvenient—and possibly reciprocated—feelings.

High School
    When we graduated in 1961, we were like most grads I think. We were going to change the world, discover a cure for cancer, win a Nobel prize, be heralded as the greatest engineers ever to live. Well, we didn't do all that; we didn't do any of that! We never even got to graduate school like we'd intended. But we managed to find happiness and I think you'll agree that's something that is all too rare these days. I am still happy today... perhaps happier than I've ever been! I still cannot hold LilCharlie in my arms and feed him or sing to him without tears in my eyes. Cathy, recalling how my father acted, misinterpreted those tears. She thought I was thinking things like "I'll never live to see him grow up!" etc, etc. I assured her that is not the case. I am simply overwhelmed with emotion whenever I look into his face. My daughter named her first son after her faggot father!

Thanks Mike!
    Rob was hungry for sex; the frustration of finding someone willing had been driving him mad. He knew his chances of doing the full thing were pretty slim at the moment. There was something wrong, but he didn’t know quite what it was just yet. He hadn’t been able to get fully aroused on the last occasion, even though it had virtually been handed to him on a plate. But then maybe that was because he felt too many demands were being placed on him. He’d been secretly scared, knowing he was expected to make the first move.

Post Hogwarts/Thriller/Suspense
    Bodies were popping up dead all across Great Britain. Nothing connected them, no eyewitnesses, no motive, and not a single suspect in sight. Junior Auror Harry Potter was not given the cases nor asked to help, but that wasn’t going to stop him from getting to the bottom of it. Even if he had to work with the Ministry’s least favourite employee, Draco Malfoy.

    He should've told him. Or he should've quit. Or he should've said something. Or he should've stopped it. Or he should've done something. Or he should've said anything.
    The premise of this story is a forced/accidental love bond. It is not between Harry and Draco. There are no sexual "actions" between the two bonded, but there is going to be a lot of angst caused by this bond until it's resolved. If you can't bear the idea of Harry or Draco being accidentally bonded to someone else, this is not the story for you.

"Origins"
by ivyblossom
Archive of Our Own
    It started as a rumour on the Hogwarts Express. Billy Huggins, a sixth year Ravenclaw, had been visiting with his great-uncle Benny, one of the most renowned pranksters in Ravenclaw history (and, incidentally, the only wizard to date to swim across the English Channel), and over the summer he had learned one of the legendary and wholly illegal Hogwarts' student capers; Balineum Abnocto, popularly known as the Swimming Hole spell. The lake that the first years ritually traveled across by boat every year was not the most inviting place to swim at the best of times; it was filled with all kinds of nasties with tentacles, poisoned spines, exploding glands, spiked tongues, iron fangs, and other, darker things that upper years whispered into the ears of new students on the train. "Don't fall in!" So rumour had it that that Billy Huggins intended cast the spell on the lake by the docks that night after dark, allowing a few lucky students the chance to enjoy a couple of hours of fun in the otherwise inaccessible water. It's time for nightswimming.

    Harry has a furry little problem – but Draco’s scent soothes the savage beastie. Will Draco be able to save him when Harry’s world begins to crumble? Bubbles, blowjobs, mystery – and something rotten in the place of Grimmauld. Yes, yes - it's a Kitten!Harry fic. I know what you’re thinking - but it was there and I had to get it out of my system. Give it a chance.

"The Pendulum of Choice"
by Rushlight
    From the author: I plotted out this series during the long and barren wait for HBP to come out (yes, it's really been that long since I started writing this). What this means is that at the time, I'd never heard of a Horcrux. I thought about changing certain parts of the storyline as that part of canon unfolded, but then I figured hey, these are all alternate universes anyway, right? So maybe Horcruxes don't exist here, or else the diary was the only one.... In any case, let's all just pretend they aren't as important as they are in JKR's world, 'kay?
    General Caveat: Here you will find pairings for Harry/just about everyone you can think of (along with other varied m/m pairings). There is noncon and death and angst and other assorted nastiness. On the flip side, there is also love and humor and hope and trust. Ratings range between episodes from G to NC-17.

Soup-pocalypse and The Great Curry Cataclysm

AO3 Author
    Eleven years after the war, Draco Malfoy leads a quiet, boring, and perfectly respectable life, thanks very much. Or, at least he does, until a sudden and very unexpected veela awakening causes him to throw soup all over Harry Potter in the middle of the Ministry cafeteria.
    Something to consider: This is a Veela fic. I think it is a bit atypical for veela fics? It hits some of the classic veela tropes but not others. Just fyi as you go into this, this is not going to be the most veela-y veela fic you've ever seen.

"Star Quality"

    Two years after the war, and Harry’s content with his life. OK, so it’s a little annoying that he keeps winning Witch Weekly’s Most Eligible Bachelor award, and he’s really not looking forward to the unveiling of an enormous gold statue of himself, but he loves his friends, and he loves being an Auror. And if he yearns for something more, something he can barely bring himself to think about, well, he’ll probably get over it. No one’s happy all the time, are they? But then everything changes, and Harry’s thrown into a new and dazzling world he’s not sure he can actually escape from. And as time goes on, he starts to wonder: does he actually want to?

    After the Battle, Harry thinks he's left Hogwarts for good, but Minerva insists that all students return for an Eighth Year if they wish to sit for NEWTs in the spring, and Harry needs those NEWTs to go into the Aurors. Draco's just grateful not to be in Azkaban. Or the Manor. He's hoping he can steer clear of Potter this year and grapple with his own problems. Unfortunately for him, Potter appears to be one of those problems. And that's not even addressing the fact that Potter's got serious issues of his own, which Draco realises as he's forced to share an Eighth Year dormitory room and several classes with the Gryffindor Git. If only they can make it through the year without killing each other, it should be all right, shouldn't it?

"Under Pressure"
by Corvette Clair
AO3 Author
    Draco Malfoy only smokes under pressure, and tonight he’s smoking like a stack. He’s stuck in an interrogation room with two hostile Aurors, trying to hide his identity and his Dark Mark, answering a lot of intrusive questions about an anonymous punter.
    Turns out the man is missing. Turns out he may not be as anonymous as Draco thought. Turns out Draco is suspected of kidnapping the Savior of the Wizarding World, and if that doesn’t entitle him to a fag or two, what does?

    OR

    Harry Potter mysteriously disappears from a Knockturn Alley dive. His Auror colleagues, having no idea why he was there, go into a panic and start questioning everyone who came into contact with him. At the top of that list is the nameless sex worker last seen taking his money.

"We Are Young (I'll Carry You Home Tonight)"

    From the author:
    Harry and Draco have been falling into bed on and off again since the last election five years ago, much to the amusement--and financial gain--of their circle of friends. But when Harry agrees to work with Draco to put Kingsley Shacklebolt into the Minister's office, they can't work side-by-side again every day and sleep together; that would be courting disaster. Wouldn't it?
    Warnings for emotional roller coasters, intense friendships, UST and sex and UST and sex, voyeurism, desperate kisses, Wizengamot elections, ongoing wagers, policy wonks behaving badly, mention of war crimes and police brutality, kittens, Blaise-as-Malcolm-Tucker, some bisexuality, lots of profanity (see Blaise-as-Malcolm-Tucker), the odd West Side Story reference.
    This story is a love letter not only to a few places in London which are special to me for one reason or another but also to Harry and Draco themselves, who will always hold a deeply meaningful place in my heart, and to those of you reading who love them as well. Buckle up, darlings, it’s going to be a bumpy ride at times, but we’ll get there in one piece. Mostly. :)

"You cannot save people, you can only love them"

ADDED to this list 26 June 2021
    Upon returning for Eighth Year, there are so many strange things going on with Malfoy, Harry doesn’t know where to start. He won’t talk to Harry, but he’s talking to ghosts. He won’t apologize for his past, but the Black Family tapestry has crossed him off its tree. And the worst of it all, he still has that infuriating, snotty mouth on him that (gets Harry’s dick hard as a rock) drives Harry insane.
