Editor's Choice Rec:
[podfic] The Evil Devil Child and the Perfect Gift read by [livejournal.com profile] semperfiona, written by [livejournal.com profile] who_la_hoop (Albus/Scorpius, Al/Scorpius/Draco, Harry/Scorpius, Harry/Draco | NC-17 | 1:50:27 hours)
Summary: When Scorpius Malfoy – Legilimens-extraordinaire, perfect son and all-round kinky little bastard – discovers that his father harbours a certain fantasy involving Harry Potter, a submissive attitude and a priceless antique dining table, he sets out to make his father's dreams come true. And if succeeding in his mission involves putting up with a naked, willing Albus Severus? Well, that's a price that Scorpius will just have to pay.

Hot Art:
Timeless by [livejournal.com profile] kiertorata (Hermione Granger/Lily Evans; NC-17)
Summary:Hermione had always been a resourceful witch.

Hot Rec:
Unexpected Company by [livejournal.com profile] gracerene(Ron Weasley/Teddy Lupin; NC-17, 4,937 words)
Summary:Ron doesn’t really know what to do with his new bachelor status, or with himself at this rotten party, but the booze is good, and very free, and Teddy Lupin is turning out to be unexpectedly good company.

Darling, Don't Think Twice by [livejournal.com profile] shiftylinguini(Harry Potter/Teddy Lupin; NC-17, 18,081 words)
Summary:Leaving the Aurors, and then England, after his divorce with Ginny was finalised was the best thing for Harry, and for Ginny, too ― but not for the godson who worshipped the ground he walked on. Now that he’s back, all Harry wants is to set up his own place, and to spend time with Teddy as he tries to fix their fractured relationship. Teddy, however, wants something else from Harry, and there’s only so many ways Harry can tell him no.

Putting Out Fires (with Gasoline) by [livejournal.com profile] lq_traintracks (Harry Potter/Teddy Lupin; NC-17, 13,633 words)
Summary:Teddy stays with Harry for a summer to help him figure out his life, or maybe to figure out his own, or to seduce his godfather, or maybe to fall in love.

The Company Ink by gryffindorj (Draco Malfoy/James Sirius Potter; NC-17, 9,380 words)
Summary:Why was Pansy always so god damned right?

A Stroke of Luck by [livejournal.com profile] mindabbles (Draco Malfoy/James Sirius Potter; NC-17, 17,715 words)
Summary:James wants two things. A successful career as an Auror and the head of the Auror training department. His first assignment takes an unexpected turn and he’s on the way to getting both.
