Welp, I signed up for Owlpost this year and writing down all the stuff I love in one place was a fun little exercise. Seems like all the cool kids are doing it, so why not?!
Thanks birdsofshore for the template and starting point.
Harry/Draco is my OTP. ♥
I used to love Albus/Scorpius but I haven't sorted my feelings out about their relationship in CC, so I'm leaving them off for now.
I am SO here for:
Humor, snark, banter; witty dialogue; antagonism; jealousy;
Getting-together fics; getting back together fics; friends to lovers; first times
UST; all the pining; denial
8th year Hogwarts; Rebuilding Hogwarts; Room of Requirement; inexperienced Harry and Draco
Both boys being a bit lost after the war; down-and-out Draco; Draco living on his own or in the Muggle world; Harry not going into Auror training; promiscuous boys; Draco without a wand or limitations on magic
Club fics or drinking at the pub; drinking games; public sex; exhibitionism; sex in the loo; groping; desperate frotting
Getting together after canon wives and children, taking care of Teddy together; H&D as dads; domestic Drarry; EWE
Auror fic; auror partners; Unspeakables; Healer!Draco; Potions!Draco; Harry with non-Ministry jobs
Accidental or forced bonding; wandlore; soulmarkAU; potions accidents; lust potions; magical tattoos; amnesia fics; Draco saving Harry's life (either as a healer or as his partner); both boys being broken and fixing themselves and each other together
Side pairing or characters I enjoy: Ron/Hermione; Ginny/Blaise or Ginny/Luna; Pansy/Harry friendship; Luna/Draco friendship; Charlie Weasley being instrumental in Harry's sexual awakening; Narcissa and Andromeda making up; portrait!Snape
I don't normally seek these out but I will read them if there are lots of other yummy things included or if written by authors I've read and trust.
Mpreg; Harry and Draco raising children other than canon children
OCs as main characters
Depression, mental illness, addiction,
All my nopes:
Heavy angst; really dark themes; major PTSD; self-harm, major focus on canon abuse
Hardcore BDSM, knifeplay; bloodplay; watersports
Non-con, torture, domestic violence
Major character death
Voldemort wins AU
Smutty, kinky things that give me a lady boner:
Either of them performing wandless magic; Harry's magic going wild/accidental when he's angry or jealous; descriptions of magic and how well their strengths complement each other; performing magic together by using Harry's strength and Draco's precision; either of them being adept at sensing magic, feeling each other's magic; Harry being super powerful
Praise kink; dirty talk; possessive behavior; any talk about how perfectly they fit together, whether it is their kinks, size, etc.; biting, especially the shoulders and neck; love bites
Fingering, very, very thorough preparation; post-sex fingering; rimming; rimming when sore from sex; sex when sore; first time rimming; rimming with facial hair. ALL THE RIMMING.
Magical sex toys, especially if Draco is using them on Harry. Incarcerous or other magical bindings. I like BDSM when there is a magical element to it.
Desperate, slutty, begging bottoms (generally prefer wanton!Potters not fussed)
Wanking + fingering; wanking in the shower; office wanks; desperate wanking
Muzzy, sleepy sex; intense emotional sex; angry sex
I generally do not care who tops but I love switching for the first time and/or only switching for that person. I also don't care who has the bigger cock, but I love it when they care.
Random things that make my heart sing:
Harry on Sirius' motorbike; Harry and Draco realizing they know each other well from all the years watching each other; Ron as a super competent Auror; Draco in waistcoats; Draco being slightly taller than Harry
