Harry Potter: Harry/Draco Recs

Harry Potter
SO, here's a Harry/Draco rec list. There won't be a lot of fics here, mostly because there's already so many amazing h/d reclists in the internet, I feel one more wouldn't make a difference. :P Still, here are my favs!

Said the Tortoise to the Hare - Lomonaaeren R, 12K, Future-fic, not epilogue compliant
Let others fling themselves at Harry; let them confirm his bad opinion of them and slobber down his sleeve with their adoration. Draco knew that the best way to win Harry Potter’s heart was to be his friend first, and go so slowly he wouldn’t even realize you were doing it.

The Lip-Lock Jinx - cassisluna PG-13, 20K, EWE, Hogwarts

Invisible To See - FayJay NC-17, 94K
Tags: Hogwarts, EWE, Other Pairing: Justin/Draco
It is a swashbuckling tale of love, friendship, romance, redemption and vengeance, and of the messy business of coming to terms with the differences between who you are and who other people want you to be.
