Tai recs: a *HP rare pair* list
So, I decided to do a Rarepairs rec list with some of my favourite miscelaneous pairings. I hope you enjoy it and discover new horizons. lol Be responsible and mind the tags.
There’s no order in the list, sorry.
Your Left Life - orphan - 28k, E - Seamus/Dean
Dean can see himself doing it, pushing the duvet to the bottom of the bed and rolling over, feeling the warm line of Seamus’ body beside him, kissing him. He knows he’s going to eventually, he can hear the start of it in his head. You fought in a war, this should be nothing.
Electric Light - orphan - 18k, E - Neville/Draco, Neville/Draco/Harry
His gloves are from last year and the left one has a small tear in the charmed leather that he has to keep out of sight of Professor Sprout, who would go into a whole lecture on health and safety if she saw it, and then insist he wore a pair from the lost and found bucket in the corner of her mouldy old office.
Burned Silk, Buckled Leather - @ruinsplume - 12k, E - Sirius/Draco
When Sirius discovers a down-and-out Draco Malfoy lurking around the edges of a Muggle kink club, he thinks he knows just what Draco needs. He isn’t expecting to run into some long-buried needs of his own.
The Meaning of Mistletoe - @llendrinall - 30k, M - Severus/Remus
“Just… tell me. Tell me what is going on, Snape.” What was going on was that Severus Snape had no trouble tracking down one Petunia Evans, now Dursley, to a little town in Surrey where he saw how exactly she was treating her nephew. Which somehow led to last night and Severus knocking on Lupin’s door with a toddler half-asleep in his arms.
Make Me Smile (come up and see me) - by busaikko -26k, E - Severus/Remus/Sirius
AU. In the aftermath of October 31st, 1981, Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, and Sirius Black try to set their differences aside to keep Harry safe.
Modern Romance - @olivieblake - 280k, E - multiship brilliance
Witch Weekly’s ‘Modern Romance’ series asks anonymous witches and wizards to record a week in their sex lives—with comic, tragic, provocative, and patently revealing results. Each week, a new episode unfolds in the lives of the Wizarding World’s elite.
Don’t Stop Me Now (A Tragedy in Three Acts) - @writcraft - 6k, E - Sirius/James
Being gay in the seventies isn’t easy, coming out is hard to do and love is complicated, messy and unexpected. When Sirius Black comes out to James Potter it serves to fuel the embers of a fire that’s been burning between them for years.
How We Were Warriors - @writcraft - 51k, E - Severus/Harry
A homophobic attack in London’s Soho brings Harry to New York City to discover more about the past. Still haunted by love and loss in the eighties, Severus just wants to forget. In Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, past and present collide, and in one another Severus and Harry find hope for the future.
Aim for My Heart - @tackytigerfic - 3k, M - Ron/Harry/Draco
Harry’s in love, Ron’s in control, and Draco just wants a nice lunch. They say three’s a crowd, but Harry doesn’t always agree. Not when he gets to be in the middle, anyway. - In which Harry’s in love with Ron, and Harry’s in love with Draco, but they’re not in love with each other. Not yet, anyway.
The Taste of Țuică - @fluxweeed - 14k, E - Ron/Harry/Draco
It’s quite one thing for your best mate to casually tell you about all the sex his boyfriend wants to have. It’s altogether another to have him bring up the time you snogged him in a shitty Central London park.
Misfortune’s Bitter Storms - @onbeinganangel - 5k, E - Bill/Fleur/Tonks
A ginger, a Metamorphmagus and a Veela walk into a room… (they fuck, that’s the punchline)
Petrichor, Pineapple and Pomegranate - @onbeinganangel - 6k, E - Sirius/Remus/James
If you’re not using your enhanced werewolf sense of smell to find out that your friends have got the hots for you, what are you even doing?
Talk To Me - by amaliaIR - 21k, E - Sirius/Remus/James
James’ love life hasn’t been going well lately, so he turns to his best friends for advice and receives so much more.
The Secretary - @pacific-rimbaud - 45k, E - Percy/Pansy
Threatened with the loss of her trust fund allowance, wild child Pansy Parkinson takes her mother up on an offer she can’t refuse: a job at the Ministry of Magic as personal secretary to tightly wound bureaucrat Percy Weasley. The job is demanding, and so is her boss, in ways that Pansy never could have imagined. When their mutual desires begin to spin out of control, how will Pansy convince her boss that sometimes, the only rules you need to follow are your own?
A Dress With Pockets - @pacific-rimbaud - 24k, E - Neville/Pansy
Pansy Parkinson needed a drink. And a shag. She didn’t care in which order.Enter: Neville fucking Longbottom and his rolled up sleeves.
—you may realise E is my thing, so again: mind the tags!—
And that’s a wrap! I’m saving the femslash ones for another day ^^ Hope you enjoy the readings, darlings! Love, Tai <3
