HD holidays - summer 07 - compilation rec list

This list has two purposes - it's an alternative masterlist to hd_holidays that includes summaries, and secondly it includes various quotes from people who recced the submissions.

So it's both a rec list and a master list.

Please note that some fics do not have quoted recs because either:
  • I've not found the recs yet
  • Those recs are friends locked
  • Current recs only provide links to the fics
  • People haven't gotten around to reccing them yet (overwhelmed by the volume of H/D goodness).
  • (Your reason here)

" It is dark which I don’t usually read but it is so wonderfully written with beautiful descriptive words of places and feelings.

"This was the first one posted, and you can see why. The writing in this fic is so beautiful, sensual and descriptive. It's extremely funny and has a lovely, typical H/D storyline in which the sexual tension between them builds slowly over time before culminating in gorgeous, ridiculously hot H/D sex. Great characterisation, too. I spent most of the time I was reading the fic biting my lip with my fingers trembling" - melusinahp (...)

"This fic pretty much made me swoon last night. The writing is lush and seductive and just a little bittersweet. "Ambiguous relationships" is more of an incentive than a warning for me, so I loved the way the author portrayed Harry/Draco here -- the simple joy they take in each other's company, even while there are wistful undercurrents between them as well.

"A nice fic, full of hot steamy scenes, UST, bickering, misunderstandings, and just a great fic! Harry and Draco are so real. You just feel for Harry when he thinks Draco isn't interested and the other way around too! What I loved most is the end with the bet and Ron losing. :D" - jasminhd (...)

A traumatised war hero and a convicted criminal under the roof of an eccentric journalist make for a rather odd ensemble, but Luna has never had a problem with oddities as long as they make sense.
