Dramione Ate My Life: A Draco/Hermione Fic Rec List

The ship that ate my brain. I don't even remember how I fell into this one less than two months ago; I think I was running around someone's rec post, saw 'Draco/Hermione,' laughed at the ridiculous impossibility of it, read it on a whim, and then was eaten by a giant obsession for this ship.

At it's best, Draco/Hermione is all the deliciousness of rivals-turn-to-romance, all the humor from two clever people snarking at each other, all the tragedy of a world that has experienced two devastating wars, and all the amazing world-building of the Harry Potter canon world. It can also be quite dark, given the amount of war-AUs, but even then the personalities carry over into painfully sharp interactions.

All I can say is, hell, try it. There are some incredible authors who have written for this pairing, including one who wrote what is probably one of my favorite works of fiction, never mind fanfiction, for this ship.

Note: I meant to go through the entire [ profile] dmhgficexchange archive, but this post was already threatening to explode under its own weight. That exchange will get its own rec post at a later date. I also have an working draft post entirely for Veela!Draco fic. (SOS: Send help, life consumed by this ship. Help me!)

If you find busted links, please let me know! Also, as always, if you have a rec, let me know! I <3 reading fic. :)

When he's not even remotely as willing as she thought he'd be, Hermione realises she's got a challenge on her hands.

[personal profile] mswyrr 2011-07-04 08:00 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you again for putting this together! I'm getting SUCH a kick out of The Virgin Conundrum. The way Hermione plays aggressor and reflects on the pleasure of making Draco blush is such a GORGEOUS reversal of all those fics that have the gender dynamics the other way around. It's pretty much exactly the sort of D/Hr I've been wanting for... ((squints)) over a decade, omg. lol :D
mswyrr: (Default)

[personal profile] mswyrr 2011-07-05 06:27 am (UTC)(link)
It really surprised me that it was penned by akashathekitty who I only knew from having looked at her story The Bracelet and found it very well written (astonishingly high quality, in fact!) but very much Not My Kink because it seemed to be 60 chapters of making Draco Hermione's master and then watching him abuse his power. Which, yeah, ends up making me want to leap into the story and break his jaw rather than inspiring the kind of fierce pleasure/joy Virgin Conundrum did. I think it's cool she can do both DOMINANT ABUSER DRACO OF DOMINANT HOTNESS fic and AGGRESSIVE HERMIONE IS SO HOTT AND KNOWS HER OWN MIND fic and do them both really well. Wow.
mswyrr: (of bodies i sing 1 - look up)

[personal profile] mswyrr 2011-07-06 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
Mmm, I had similar problems with The Bracelet. At the end, it's a total power dynamic switch with Hermione being the one who makes the major decisions/is in charge (along with some of the most tasty So Angsty Because She Will Never Love Me!Draco I've ever read), but there so many chapters until that happens. So. Many.

Oh! That's really interesting. Would it be terrible of me if I asked if you recall which is the chapter where the shift happens? Because I really wouldn't want to sit through Draco being interminably abusive. But I'd like to read the end and see the switch if I can jump straight to it.

I'm totally looking forward to seeing what she writes in the future, because I think The Bracelet was her earliest work and The Virgin Conundrums was her latest. That's a career arc that I'm totally interested in following! :D

Yes! I really admire how she's taken her talent and kept going with it, challenging stereotypes and putting her own twist on things. Very cool.
mswyrr: (s&g - kiss)

[personal profile] mswyrr 2011-07-07 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
I'll have to try reading from the later chapters to the conclusion, then! Thanks. :)

[personal profile] eevilalice 2013-01-18 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
Pardon the out-of-nowhere entry into this older conversation, but I was re-skimming your rec list and saw this. The Bracelet is not Akasha's earliest's like her third or fourth (or fifth) story maybe? Silencio was the first possibly, but she also had some shorter fics between that and Bracelet. I really gotta reread was one of my first Dramione faves.

Thank you!

Just wanted to say thank you for the rec of Midnight! You made my day. (I am still writing it, albeit slooooowly.)

My pleasure. I get all excited and squeeful at being recced, it's such an awesome compliment. There will be more of it by the end of this week - I'm hoping a little sooner, as I'm going to get cracking today.

I will finish it :) The ending's already figured out in my mind. Getting there is the fun part. Thanks again!

Umm, wow. You rec'ed pretty much all my Draco/Hermione stuff, even my WiP, in the same list with many cool D/Hr writerly folk. I don't think that's ever happened before.

I am both squeeful (like the above amazing author of Midnight, my favourite D/Hr WiP in town) and also a little tearful.

Thank you so much.

Genuinely, I sorta want to squish you right now (in a very socially acceptable way). I think I may have written my last D/Hr fic - unless I ever manage to finish "China Patterns and Werewolves" - so it's really, really nice to know that my fics were enjoyed.

Thank you again and thanks for sharing all the other recs. There are a few I haven't seen before, so I'm looking forward to checking them out.

Yep! And it's got 2,000+ likes/reblogs on Tumblr, which is encouraging. :) THE SHIP, SHE LIVES. :D

There's another gif floating around where Draco is flashing the sharpied Dark Mark he drew on himself. ((lmao))

Squeee! Thank you. Bookmarking it for later.

I found one pretty much fantastic novel-length fic I wanted to rec back to you -- it's got awesome deconstructing!Draco stuff, good work on involving the larger HP cast, and some crunchy stuff about Light Side/Dark Side culpability and identity. OH! And Shakespeare refs. OOOOH, and a really lovely depiction of sexuality that's not, like, cliched or stereotyped, but really freaking hot and natural to the characters. And it's quite funny at various points. :) It's like my ideal fic, basically.

Thirteenth Night by Nelpher

You might also like this one, which has one powerful scene about exorcizing the past that I thought was quite good.

And this is my favorite D/Hr Marriage Law fic yet because it's about Hermione being the one who proposes for her own reasons rather than Draco taking it as an opportunity to own her. And there's some weird/cool stuff in there about Romance novels. It has a sequel, too.

Thank you so much for compiling this fantastic list!! I was feeling dejected because it seemed like I ran out of good Dramione fanfiction to read, and they're the OTP of my LIFE. But luckily there were a handful of really wonderful reads on this list that I hadn't seen before!!

I hope you eventually re-visit this list and update it with any findings you've discovered since. :) Thank you again for sharing!!
