nearlyconscious drew Rosewater [Rose | G]
Rose is a successful pastry chef, and her specialty is fairy cakes! Word has it her rosewater cakes will make your mouth water.
shiftylinguini drew Under Cover [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
It looks like rain, but Albus has had this picnic planned for days and he’s not letting the weather of all things get in the way of his afternoon with Scorpius. Armed with a cloak as an improvised rain shelter ― and some plastic butterflies transfigured out of Scorpius’s water bottle ― well, it’ll take more than rain to keep them indoors.
anemonen drew (Just know that) I want you back [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
Of course Al wanted him back. His nervousness from just moments earlier suddenly seemed impossibly silly.
8c drew Autumn Days [Albus Severus/Scorpius | G]
Al and Scorpius enjoying the autumn leaves.
nearlyconscious drew 2024+ [Padma/Rose | G]
Rose was not looking forward so much to yet another boring Ministry event, but it turned out to be... interesting.

iamisaac wrote Right Here Beside You [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
When Aurors Lupin and Potter are told to look into a Dark Potions ring, they don't anticipate running into a bonding spell. But now James can't go more than a metre or two from Teddy under any circumstances, and it (or possibly he) is bloody hard.
cap_bookworm wrote Speaking Of (Things in Your Mouth) [Albus Severus/James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
Pouring rain, paintings, pierogies, and polyamory.
daddyshiro wrote Homecoming [Hugo/James Sirius | NC-17]
Hugo has always been the shy, unnoticed kid, but when he comes back after seven years travelling the world and with abs to kill for, James simply can’t take his eyes off him.
_melodic_ wrote Can't Buy Me Love [Albus Severus/Draco | NC-17]
It all had began so simply, but when had everything changed? A handsome young man, some gorgeous eye-candy, that's all it was meant to be. Draco hadn't expected to fall head over heels.

Soaked by the rain, three Potters face one bed, and each other.
maccadole wrote Closed Door, Open Window [Albus Severus/Teddy | NC-17]
When James announces his engagement, Teddy knows it's time to get over him. In the process of trying to deal with his hidden feelings, Teddy finds himself liking the unexpected support he gets from someone who's caught on. Slowly, things start to change, and he learns that sometimes all it takes is a tiny shift in perspective to see something familiar in a new light.
poisonmissives wrote This old house [Malfoy Family Gen | PG-13]
Every Sunday, for as long as he could remember, Scorpius Malfoy had been accompanying his father to Malfoy Manor to visit his grandparents. This is one of those times.
snax0 wrote A Decent Replacement [James Sirius/Scorpius | NC-17]
There’s not enough room at The Burrow with everyone crowding in for Victoire’s wedding, so James and Scorpius are going to have to share a room. Which would be fine, if that didn’t also mean sharing one bed.
maraudersaffair wrote Similar Creatures [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
Scorpius is a prostitute who dreams of becoming a history professor. Albus is the privileged arsehole who hires him.
realmer06 wrote A Molly Weasley Tradition [Molly & Molly II Gen | G]
Knitting Christmas jumpers is a Molly Weasley tradition, and not one either of them intend to give up.
leontinabowie wrote You’re the One [James Sirius/Teddy | R]
James is a good boy who wears bowties and listens to Buddy Holly, while Teddy is tattooed and pierced and plays in a punk band. As James starts to spend more time with Teddy he realises just how much trouble Teddy is in, and desperately tries to help him while falling harder and harder for his best friend.
slash_lover82 wrote Draco Malfoy's Humiliating Mistake [James Sirius/Scorpius | NC-17]
If there is one thing that Draco Malfoy really dislikes, it is to be humiliated. And if in addition, the person witnessing the ordeal is Harry bloody Potter, that is definitely enough to leave the Slytherin dizzy with anger. Only, Scorpius happens to be involved, too, and when it comes to the Malfoy heir, Draco has a terrible soft spot. Which is the only reason that the blond doesn't actually end up killing Potter. Naturally.
articcat621 wrote A Slave To Your Love [Hermione/Teddy | R]
They both knew that it should stop.
llaeyro wrote Adventure in a Club Cubicle [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
Teddy has figured out James’s secret turn-on.
aj_horn wrote Cross my Heart [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
It was tradition; every year, Albus and Scorpius would go to school's balls together. Girls never wanted to go with Scorpius, and they all wanted to go with Albus. This way, Albus doesn't have to pick, and Scorpius doesn't stay locked in his dormitory. This year, however, something has changed. Albus' new girlfriend wants them to go together, as couples do, and Scorpius' feelings for Albus, which have been brewing for a while, complicates their friendship further.

Teddy’s always been able to fix whatever was wrong with James – until now.
He can’t fix it, but maybe together, they can learn to balance.
my_thestral wrote Unbreakable [Albus Severus/Hugo | NC-17]
Al's fascination with Hugo goes back to the day he was born and never waivers through all the childhood years they spend together, living in each other's pocket. For a boy like Al, who perpetually feels like a loser in a family, filled with over-achievers, Hugo's quiet confidence and unconditional affection feels like salvation. How could something so right possibly be wrong? Until Al slowly comes to realise that the world thinks what they have is too much and wrong. Can Al, not one up to much ruckus and conflict, stand up for what he wants in life?
shiftylinguini wrote Sardines [Albus Severus/Scorpius & James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
It’s bad enough his cock is hard from listening to the impromptu midnight pornography of his brother getting off; Albus is not going to add seeing it to the list of reasons why he lost his mind, and presumably his eyesight, on the eve of his grandmother's seventieth.
Scorpius, though, doesn’t appear to have any such qualms.
mollywheezy wrote Bloody Brilliant Wedding [Lily Luna/Lysander | PG-13]
Lily loves weddings and Hugo hates them, but they both have new experiences at Molly’s wedding reception that may change their perception.
thenewlondoner wrote 21st Century Medieval Romance [Hugo/Scorpius | PG-13]
Hugo, medieval history nerd extraordinaire, did not expect to see all around pompous git Scorpius Malfoy after Hogwarts at all, much less enrolled in the same course at university. So of course that’s exactly what happened.

Lucy thinks that her secrets are well hidden and that no one notices her. But she's quite wrong about that.

James and Scorpius have never spent an evening alone together, but after Albus, Dominique, Lily and even bloody Hugo has to cancel their pub plans, they’re stuck in each other's company. Now, Scorpius just needs to try not to enjoy it too much, and not make an idiot of himself in front of Albus’ big brother.
ely_baby wrote Endings and Beginnings [Hugo/Lily Luna & Rose/Scorpius | PG-13]
