Borrowed from Fire, because she is awesome and I always get good ideas from her. I've started participating in a lot more fests, so this seemed like a really good idea. I will come back every so often and add to it. Enjoy!
Dislikes: (Preference rather than trigger. I have read the occasional fic where some of these may have been included, but I'd really, really rather not)
Imbalance in their relationship - I like that they play off each other and don't back down from each other. It's one of the reasons I think the ship works so well.
Infidelity just makes me feel super sad and awkward. Especially between Harry and Draco. Actually, nope, all infidelity makes me sad
Close friends of Harry's (Ron, Hermione, Luna, Neville...) being unsupportive of his sexuality (unless it's a THING. But even then, I like them to get over it)
Calling someone "slut" or "whore" during sex- I can read it, but something doesn't sit right with me.
Excessive amounts of pain in sex. Not that I find it uncomfortable, more like it makes me go 'ouch' rather than 'ooh'.
Major Character Death.
I know it's ridiculous, but Draco with long hair. I just feel like he'd not want to be anything like his dad...
The Cursed Child.
American spellings for words when they're said by British characters, because I guess American spellings come from the accent something is said in...
So, obviously, I love Harry/Draco. I don't really read anything else, and I don't write it either. There are other pairings that I will read, and ones that I love to see in Harry/Draco fics.
Here’s the ones I love:
Ron/Hermione (I just... I really love them together. Love them)
Split into categories!
POV – I like third person. I just do.
Tense – All the tenses! I love past and present tense equally.
Non-linear timelines – Are great if they aren't confusing
Allusions to books/films of any sort.
Puns and innuendos... mmm, yes.
Genres and Tropes:
Angst - but only if there is a happy ending!
"My friends set me up and I hate them, but also love them because I love you"
Unusual careers that have them thrown together where one is an expert and the other is like "fuck me, you're amazing"
Harry being a hero, Draco not wanting him to be
"You've never just been HARRY to me." Followed by Draco insulting Harry lovingly
Trapped together/forced proximity
Friends with Benefits
Pretend Boyfriends/Fake Relationship <3 <3 <3
Mpreg, but only if it is done really well and makes sense
First times for anything, especially kissing.
Fingering - I like a fully prepared man!
Role-play, especially Auror/criminal role-play.
Half-clothed, need-you-right-now sex
Snarky Draco, funny Harry
Draco coping with and/or figuring out Muggle things
Routines and domesticity
Antagonism and arguing
Harry being an awesome godfather to Teddy
Just Teddy in general
And on that note, background Ron/Hermione
And Molly being the boss she is
Ginny and Harry breaking amicably.
Visits to The Burrow/Malfoy Manor
Doing up Grimmauld Place
Complex spells and magical theory
Draco being taller than Harry.
Harry being broader than Draco.
Draco borrowing Harry's clothes because Harry still wears bagging things.
Love/lust potions, both accidental and deliberate.
Bonding spells gone awry, or otherwise forced to be around each other
Draco getting along with Harry's friends.
Harry getting along with Draco's.
Everyone getting along because yes please (although, obviously, this isn't compulsory.)
How Harry's unhappy childhood has affected him as an adult
Room of Requirement
Draco's feet and hands.
That's all I can think of for now. I post my fics on AO3, so if you want to have a look at what I've written click HERE
