HP - H/D - back to back

Recs! Of the HP variety!

Its been a few years since I went on a Harry/Draco binge but between catching up with hd_holidays, the other fests and fandom faves, am totally a happy shipper XD For the first time though, instead of reading on the laptop, I've been transferring fics to epub format for reading on my Nook Touch - especially since most reads are at least 25k words long.

It helps that certain archives allow you to download multi-chapter fics in one go: Archive of Our Own has the option to load the "entire work" and Hex files has a printable story format. There's also a story export script for ff.net. The only sites that don't make it any easier are skyehawke and LJ :( Still, am glad most fests now host fics on external sites and on a single page.

Working with Chrome, Notepad ++ and Calibre, its easy to convert the fics to epub files with manageable sizes :D And I find I scroll less and read more when I'm on the Nook too XD

Anyway, I've compiled a list of recs under the cut and also updated my old Starter Kit with titles from recent years.

H/D fic recs this way...Collapse )

Oh and a general shoutout: ADD ME ON GOODREADS - am always looking out for titles to read so the more friends there the better :D
