Trajectories by bookshop
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | PG | 35,000 words
Rembrandt's phrase in describing his painting: "Die meeste ende di naetureelste beweechgelickheijt", can be translated as greatest, most natural movement (emotion or motive).
Really lovely H/D about dealing with the aftermath of defeating Voldemort, but EWE - 8th year fic where they all return to school, and not only has there been rebuilding, but painting. It may have also almost made me cry, in the nicest of ways.

And I'll Tell You No Lies by annafugazzi
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | R | 23,600 words
It all started with a stupid interrogation. Or: Don't ask a question if you're not prepared to hear the answer.
Ah, Auror Training! I like. Lots.

The World Thy Gaol by novembersnow
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | R | 18,300 words
In the post-war world, nothing seemed to fit quite right.
Malfoy, potions, unexpected blackmail.

Draco Malfoy, It's Your Lucky Day by faithwood
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | NC17 | 37,000 words
Even though he's unarmed, injured, lost in the Forbidden Forest, and facing a possible murder charge, Draco Malfoy gets lucky.
Romance novel plot, sort of, and out of character 'sweet' Draco, and still it made me want to cuddle.

A Confusion of Will and Desire by gatewaygirl
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | NC17 | ~50,000 words
When Harry starts to have erotic dreams about his godfather, he questions his sexual preference. The real issue turns out to be even more complicated and disruptive. Then there's Draco.
Warnings: Possibly inadvertent drug rape (in the past). Rape fantasy. Dealing with trauma. Infidelity. Sex with a prostitute. Angst. Sex in semi-public places. Sex toys and charms.

I don't tend to read chan, and this isn't it precisely, but it did totally draw me in.  A little dark and a little messed up, but there's something that works with messed up here.

The Finder Series by gatewaygirl
Harry Potter | Harry/Snape | NC17, D/S, teacher/student | ~70,000 words
In his seventh-year class, Severus mentions how rare basilisk scales are. When Harry leads him down to the Chamber of Secrets, Severus ensures that he's satisfied.
The first is PWP, but then it went and got plotty, and I couldn't resist.

The Potter-Malfoy Problem by who_la_hoop
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | NC17 | 29,000 words
The room of requirement's gone mad — at least, that's what Harry thinks. There's no way that Draco Malfoy 'requires' him, of all people, but why does it keep dragging Harry there like he's some kind of furniture, every time Malfoy enters it? Throw in Pansy the pervert and a clipboard-wielding Hermione, and things can only go from bad to worse. And that's not even mentioning the pirates . . .
I'm pretty sure this is one variation on a similar theme, and I know I've read this before, but so?  there is pleasure in the repetition.

Chasing Time by taradiane
Harry Potter | Harry/Draco | PG13 | 30,700 words
"Happiness is temporary, but joy is not. After everything that your father took from him, we owe it to him to try and give some of it back. The debts that we owe the Potter boy cannot be numbered, and what we took from him cannot be measured, but you will find a way, and maybe then, you can find a little joy of your own."

#LOVESTORY by [personal profile] sam_storyteller
Torchwood/Iron Man Crossover | surprise pairing | PG | 3,300 words
"I await your variable input." "You say the nicest things."
Computer love in the digital age? OMG so cute. So cute.

The Best by mars_daydream
AI8 | Kris/Adam | R | 22,300 words
Tale as old as time. Adam's beautiful, fierce, and a total asshole until a stranger changes everything. AU.

Love Story by waldorph
ST:Reboot | Kirk/Spock | R | 8,500 words
Summary: We were both young, when I first saw you
A sweet HS AU set in the ST verse, but with Spock as the dashing vulcan prince. Sort of. Really cute.
