Snowgall's Best of Drarry Fanfiction: 2011

What follows is a list of my picks for the best Drarry fanfiction of 2011
(18 fics, sorted by date published)

Updated May 16, 2015

Note: There are so many lists of favorite Harry/Draco fanfiction, but I wanted to do something a little different. Rather than create a list based on genre or length or era or whatever, I've decided to do a series of "best-of X year" lists. This means the year the work was published not the year I read it.

I'm still trying to catch up to 2014--maybe I'll get there in a few more months!

More lists:

Title Author Rated Length Original Post Pub Date
favicon Sex, Lies, and Veritaserum lettered NC-17 18,000 dreamwidth 11-Feb-2011
This entire fic is one long conversation about sex.
Recs: capitu | slashworld
favicon The Weight of Eternity envy_venis NC-17 21,000 do_me_veela 1-Mar-2011
Desperate for survival, Draco takes what he needs from others while avoiding the one he's meant to be with. His newfound compassion will not allow him to trap the one he loves, even if it means his own life is the price paid for Harry's freedom of choice.
Recs: snowgall mini-theme | capitu | hd-storyroom (celestlyn)
favicon Unkissed Kisses and Songs Never Sung femmequixotic R 13,000 hd-remix 5-Mar-2011
I sit silently in the shadows, staring at the tiny, pulsing ball of light that tells me my Harry's still alive. Remix of khasael's Promises and Sounds, Lines, and Meaning.
Recs: capitu | hd-storyroom (omi_ohmy)
favicon Fast Forward, Two Steps Back emmagrant01 NC-17 36,000 dracotops-harry 16-Mar-2011
Everyone knows that Draco Malfoy died in the Room of Requirement ten years ago. So when he suddenly reappears at Hogwarts ten years later, still seventeen years old, Professor Harry Potter's life gets very complicated.
Recs: capitu | hd-storyroom (celestlyn)
favicon You Can Have My Everything white_serpent NC-17 8,000 dracotops-harry 20-Mar-2011
Sometimes it takes a little pain to break through the apathy.
Rec: capitu
raindrops on roses and whiskers on kneazles curiouslyfic R 1,750 livejournal 22-Apr-2011
Harry sort of comes back the world to the sound of sniffling, which strikes him as odd.
Added 16 May 2015
favicon In Pieces dysonrules NC-17 88,000 hd-smoochfest 15-Jun-2011
Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new DADA instructor, only to find his teaching efforts thwarted by a very familiar ghost. This fic contains mature content and the necessity of one of our boys not being alive. Exactly. *grin*
Recs: capitu | gracerene
favicon The Silent World Within You femmequixotic and noeon NC-17 96,000 harrydracompreg 25-Jun-2011
Harry only wanted Malfoy for one night, one birthday. It wasn't meant to be anything more.
Rec: capitu
favicon And I've Never Told You Till Just Now favicon pasdexcuses NC-17 9,000 serpentinelion 1-Jul-2011
Draco didn't notice it suddenly, his desire for Potter. He didn't wake up one day with the need to have his tongue down Potter's throat or go in the shower to find that he liked wanking to Potter's mouth. No, it started slow in his veins, pulsing through his body like a ghost. It crept into his sleep in the form of conversations and during the day as he looked forward to reading Potter's wobbly handwriting when they weren't actually talking face to face.
favicon IDK My BFF Hermione? lettered NC-17 19,000 serpentinelion 24-Jul-2011
Draco's a hot mess. Harry's lovin' it (hell yes).
Recs: hd-storyroom (snowgall) | capitu
favicon Then Comes a Mist and a Weeping Rain faithwood NC-17 21,000 serpentinelion 1-Aug-2011
It always rains for Draco Malfoy. Metaphorically. And literally. Ever since he had accidentally Conjured a cloud. A cloud that's ever so cross.
Recs: capitu | remula
favicon Anyone for Scrabble? fr333bird NC-17 2,500 livejournal 3-Aug-2011
Draco and Harry enjoy a heated game of Scrabble. Inspired by the interview with Tom Felton on Lopez Tonight where he mentioned staying up late playing Scrabble with Dan and it got "very heated". Flail.
Rec: hd-storyroom (omi_ohmy)
favicon Would You? emmagrant01 R 4,500 skyehawke 26-Aug-2011
MLE officer Draco Malfoy just spent a month working with Auror Harry Potter to catch a criminal. Now that the case is closed, Potter keeps following him about, for some reason.
Rec: hd-storyroom (snowgall)
favicon Make it Good fr333bird NC-17 9,400 hp-sexstars 22-Nov-2011
Harry and Draco are Auror partners who have to go undercover as rent-boys at a brothel. Contains pining, first times, love, drama and Draco in skinny jeans - and explicit adult content of course.
Rec: hd-storyroom (snowgall)
favicon Humbug (A Christmas Tale) snegurochka_lee NC-17 30,000 hd-holidays 1-Dec-2011
Draco has been taking his casual relationship with Harry for granted. Visits from four key ghosts the night before Christmas just might shake up his priorities in life.
Recs: capitu | hd-storyroom (starlitshore)
Come Now, and Let Me Dream it Truth insuladraconis NC-17 13,000 hd-holidays 4-Dec-2011
Something strange is going on with the Fountain of Magical Brethren, and Auror Harry is put in charge of finding out what.
Recs: hd-storyroom (snowgall) | capitu
favicon At Your Service faithwood NC-17 99,000 hd-holidays 17-Dec-2011
Hogwarts students are in danger; Harry is determined to save them all. There's only one thing he knows for certain: Draco Malfoy is somehow involved. An eighth year fic.
Recs: capitu | hd-storyroom (nenne)
favicon The Boy Who Only Lived Twice lettered NC-17 56,000 hd-holidays 23-Dec-2011
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.

General notes:

  • The "original post" column provides links to the first place I can find evidence of the work online. However, it can be really tough to determine when and where a work was first published (see my rant here: Dates Matter). So it could be that a fic was actually published earlier somewhere else and I didn't know it. Corrections are welcome.
  • I've read a lot of HD fiction, but I certainly haven't read it all, so if I've left off something you think I shouldn't have, I'm happy for you to let me know.
  • I may continue to add works to this list but I will try to keep the total number to 25 or less. (On the challenge of maintaining lists)
  • My goal is to add lists for other years as well, time permitting.

How my fic preferences will skew the lists:

  • I tend to like fics which contain explicit sex, so the list will probably skew that way. However, I prefer that there be an actual plot, not just sex, and I read PG rated fics too--just fewer of them.
  • I like almost all the standard tropes, but I don't usually go for non-magical AUs, unhappy endings, dark!fic, or threesomes
  • I don't give a toss who's on top or bottom, so you'll find both here.
  • I shy away from epic-length fanfiction unless I'm very confident in the author, so most of my recs will be less than 100,000 words.
