LOL I thought that said HD_Hurlfest ^^; But man, it's been a while since I was in the Harry Potter fandom. Not that I was ever super deep into it but even so... *shrugs* I'll probably still end up rereading the few H/D fics that I did read sooner or later, and maybe Shoebox Project too while I'm at it ^.^

Oh lol hurlfest. XD
Rereading old H/D classics is what I do every weekend lol.
But many new stories from the current fests are awesome, I even can name a few of them that should be called the new classics :D

Oooh, do share please thanks :D I need to replenish the stash of fanfic I have for reading while at work (only when it's not busy...obviously... *coughs*).

Any older stories that you especially love? My personal favorite is Are You There, God? It's Me, Draco since it has fluff and humor and mystery, them as Aurors, and top!Harry among other things ^.^ Of course there's also some of Maya's stuff... and I've definitely read more than that but conveniently cannot remember any by name at the moment OTL

Ahahaha Maya's stuff, the must reads in H/D fandom. If you ask me about my most favourite, that'll be 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' by Maya. I do have more favourites, though. For old classics I like 'The Shadow of His Wings' by Mirabella, 'A Thousand Beautiful Things' by Duinn Fionn... Newer classics will be Lettered's 'The Boy Who Lived Only Twice', and then 'Here's the Pencil, Make It Work' by ignatiustrout. And just like you, I've read so many stories but yeah, a lot of them have escaped my mind xDD

I have read 'Are You There God? It's Me, Draco', it was really funny lol. If you like mystery and top!Harry, hmm... I can think of 'At Your Service' by Faithwood. It's 8th year fic, but has intricate plot and mystery ;D

Ahhh, I've only read through it once, but Drop Dead Gorgeous was quite good~ And now I want a peppermint XD For sure I've read all of the stories in the A Thousand Beautiful Things universe...just can't seem to remember what it was about ^^; I guess a rereading is in order. While I haven't read the Mirabella story, that fic of hers Towards Zero is one of my favorite Inception fics <3 And I'll definitely be sure to check out all the other stories as well. Thanks for the recs! ^.^

ETA: Out of sheer laziness curiosity, do you happen to have a copy of The Shadow of His Wings?

Lol yes I have The Shadow of His Wings. Here:
Warning, though, it's not finished, but it's so good that even though I make it my policy to only read completed works, I still read it. Intricate plot, delicious Draco... pinning!Harry... So no regrets haha.

A Thousand Beautiful Things is the story that got me love Drarry ;p
At first I read all fics with skepticism, until I finally found that story (it's not that the characters are all IC, since that time JK hasn't finished the books and there was very little reference about Draco, but I just enjoyed the way Draco was portrayed there xD).

Wah, thank you so much! I had considered waiting until Mirabella maybe posted this and the rest of her fics onto Dreamwidth since her main site is apparently gone, but the need for instant gratification on this story was just too strong ^^;

But yeah, I'm definitely going to have to reread A Thousand Beautiful Things. Was this the one where at some point Dean Thomas and someone else had their hands forming Draco's initials in sign language? And I think there was something about a very expensive car... *scratches head* I keep thinking this is the one where Draco takes a vow of silence while Harry acts like a total jerk every night, but I'm pretty sure that's something else...

I think I started reading Drarry fics because I came across this amv while looking for the song, then later thought I might as well see why they're so popular, and then came across this list. Tissue of Silver by fearlessdiva was my first Drarry fic, and since I liked that well enough, I checked out some of the other stories on that list...and then found more rec lists...and things kinda just snowballed from there until my Drarry mood went on vacation XD

Anyways, happy Friday! The weekend is almost here~
