Following a terrible crime and four-and-a-half years in Azkaban, Draco Malfoy is granted early release and is placed on license with an innovative new programme through the Auror Office of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Draco finds he doesn't know which is worse: Azkaban, or being under the legal supervision of Harry Potter. Even the most sacrosanct of boundaries can be breached.

------

My thoughts: A powerful introspective story. It is a fascinating journey into the mind of a reformed criminal. It is relatively dark, but it's also full of hope.

Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 56k

Harry Potter is an Unspeakable. Draco Malfoy is the wizard who shagged him. Adventure! Intrigue! Secret identities, celebrities, spies! It's all right here, folks.

------

My thoughts: Harry was so insensitive and clueless in story that it nearly broke my heart at times. Yet, this story is so well written that despite all of Harry's flaws, you still cheer for him and have hoe for him.

Title : Take the Air
Author : [info]dysonrules
Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 50k

Someone or something is attacking Muggles and leaving them for dead. Auror Harry Potter is assigned to the case, but with his usual partner unavailable, he is stuck with the worst, most anti-social, rude, and annoying Auror ever to walk the halls of the Ministry. Or perhaps he is only that way around Harry…

------

My thoughts: Harry coming to Draco's rescue - both on a mission and in the office - is always rewarding. It particularly is in this complex, yet enticing story. This fic is filled with aurors chasing Dementors around, well-thought magical theories, falcons and three dimensional original characters.

The only question is whether they will kill each other before the magical objects succeed in killing them.

------

My thoughts: Reading this on the 24th really got me into Christmas spirit. It is a charming, amusing story. I couldn't help smiling and probably looked like a fool when I finally got to my relatives', but that's a fair price to pay for a good story and a bit of Christmas cheer.

Title : The Moon Loves Her Shadows
Author : [info]frayach
Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 45k

Ingrained prejudices die hard, and sometimes love has its limits. Like all pure-blood wizards, Draco was taught since birth to hate and fear Werewolves, but when he discovers he unknowingly married one, things no longer seem so black and white.

------

My thoughts: I dislike bestiality. Therefore, it's a good thing I didn't read the warnings before jumping into this fic, or I would probably have avoided it. Yes, it's werewolf!Harry and Draco, but it's much more than that. This fic is about prejudice, fear, betrayal and love. It is quite a powerful story.

Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 39k

Harry and Draco learn that Time is making fools of them again. And then they learn it... again.

------

My thoughts : If I have one regret about HP it's that, after introducing time turners and pensive, the concept of time travel and the possibilities it offers weren't further explored in the books. That is why I appreciate stories dealing with such subject matters so much. With the number of concepts introduced, it was a bit confusing at first, but it soon became both thrilling and captivating.

Pairing : Harry/Draco
Completed : Yes
Words : 69k

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?

------

My thoughts : I had intended to read only a few scenes before going to bed, but somehow i ended up reading until 3am. I simply couldn't put this fic down. I had to see if Harry and Draco would finally get their act together and I went through quite an emotional journey to find out. As an added bonus, the fic's political setting was brilliant.

Draco Malfoy had stopped believing his wishes would be granted long ago. He could perhaps be forgiven for being startled, then, when one of them came true.

My thoughts : Loved this to pieces. I am slowly falling behind on my [info]hd_holidays readings, but I'm glad I found the time for this fic. I love post-war struggles, I love a bit of mystery. I love 8th year fics, and this one was masterfully done.

Completed : Yes
Words : 4.5k

They are so violent in their silences, so vicious. They are careless in this, always meeting on practiced accident, stumbling into each other with rehearsed surprise and indifference, as if it isn't the priority of
the evening to find one another and seek out all the dark parts that are mended to shadows and  wrongness, to bruises and wounds, to scars and secrets.


------

My thoughts : Deliciously dark and perversely twisted. This is exactly the kind of fic you can't forget. I loved the open-ending and I just loved dark!Albus.
