Title : He Who Must Not Be Normal
Author : lettered
Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 41,5K

Potter has fame and fortune and posh clothes and all he wants is a simple life. Draco has a flat and a cat and a steady job and all he wants is a complicated life. Which makes you think this story has something exciting like body-swapping, but it doesn’t. Instead it has Indian takeaway and a blue jumper and people wanting a whole lot of what they can’t have, discovering themselves as they discover each other.

My thoughts: I fell deeply in love with this story. The setting, the portrayal, the tone, the words : everything was perfect. I wanted to pull Harry and Draco in my arms and tell them everything would be alright.

Title : In the Company of a Rubber Duck
Author : birdsofshore
Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 35K

War makes for strange bedfellows. However that doesn't fully explain how Harry ended up sharing his bath with Draco Malfoy... nor why Malfoy was a rubber duck at the time.

---

My thoughts:I really enjoyed reading this fic. It's excessively brilliant and utterly funny. With lines such as "Hiding in the saucepan had proved to be an invalid long term solution", you can't deny it is.

What was meant to be an unexpected one-off in the loo of a Camden bar turns into something rather different, much to Harry and Draco's surprise.

---

My thoughts: Such a powerful fic! The plot, setting and writing style pulled me deeply into the story and it felt almost real. I could see the scenes as they unrolled in front of my eyes. This one goes directly to my pile of must-read-again (and again).

For the rest of his life, Draco will blame what happened this Christmas on the fact that he hadn't thought to bring a book.

Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes

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.

---

My thoughts: Reading this, I remembered exactly why I fell in love with this fandom. I remembered why I spent sleeppless nights reading stories after stories right after I first stumbled upon the pairing. It is by far one of the best fics I've read in a while. It's a wonderfully written eight year story with a slow building romance. That's really all I need to say.

Three years after Draco’s war crimes trial, the Wizengamot finally decides on his community sentence: help rebuild a village that was destroyed in the war. It sounds simple enough. Until Draco begins to unravel the mystery behind the assignment.

------

My thoughts: The author created a quiet yet mysterious atmosphere that slowly pulled me deeper into the story. This is simply a brilliant read.
