Rec List: Harry/Draco in Sentient Magical Homes

The recent [community profile] hd_erised fic The Claiming of Grimmauld Place involves a sentient!Grimmauld Place as a plot device. Enjoyment of this fic inspired several people on the Drarry Discord server to come up with a list of fics with similar themes.

I’ve read all of these fics except for the last one (which I haven’t yet read but which came highly recommended by others) and they were all thoroughly enjoyable worthwhile reads which I am happy to recommend :)

So if you’re looking for Drarry fics involving a sentient magical home, here you go! (with thanks to [personal profile] aibidil[profile] llap115​ and [profile] henrymercury​ for helping to compile this list ♥ )

Roll Me, Tumble Me by [ profile] jazzonia | 3,100 words | NC-17

    Grimmauld Place hasn’t been outright hostile toward Harry in several years, but lately it’s been sort of… nice to him. Harry finds himself waiting for the other shoe to drop, and the other chair to upturn itself, and the other candelabra to pitch itself from atop his bureau. It’s new. It’s weird. And it brings Draco Malfoy, soot-covered and sputtering, to his doorstep.
