TGIF...

Hello again. I hope everyone has had a lovely week... My week was rather long, but TGIF  :)

Before we get to this week's theme, I have a few things that I want to tell you before hand. Last week's illness/sick!Character theme did quite well, and we got quite a bit of recs. So you guys should stay tuned and check in sometime tomorrow for the info. Also, I figured that I'd let you know that the Party Games theme went from under twenty recs to over seventy. And there are quite a few different pairings, so I suggest you take a peek if you're interested.

For this week's theme, I thought we'd continue working on the Creature fics. So without further adieu, this week's theme is Veela recs. For subthemes, simply tell me who the veela is. As always, happy reccing! ~Jaime

~~EDIT: Recs can include canon Veelas, as long as they have some important (ish) role, and are not just mentioned.

Veela Recs - Update: Part 1

Now, really, how could these classics be forgotten in this list? Or was that intentional?

Title: The Obligatory 'Draco is a Veela' Story that Every HP Fanfiction Author has to Write

Other fitting themes: theme:Humour


Title: Decorus Draco
Author: Arwen Applestone
Rating: M
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: Draco's a male Veela. And Harry's going crazy over him. Epilogue! All's well that ends well? SLASH alert! DMHP COMPLETE
Veela!Character: veela!Draco
Status: Complete
URL: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1852925/1/Decorus_Draco
My Comments: A "well-intentioned fabrication", soulmates, Lucius and Narcissa sneakily supporting Draco, amused Snape and Dumbledore, and a Voldemort who is overpowered by Draco after kidnapping Harry! Hilarious! (Oh, and the name of the Veela god as mentioned somewhere toward the end? Priceless!)
Other fitting themes: theme:Humour


Title: There's Something About Malfoy
Author: cassie_black12
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: trange things keep happening to Draco Malfoy, and Harry Potter is determined to get to the bottom of it. He may end up with more than he bargained for. AU after OOTP.
Veela!Character: veela!Draco

Title: Angels and Devils - Chapter Listing
Author: Beren
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: Harry defeated Voldemort: his act of heroism is famous throughout the wizarding world. He’s trying to finish his final year at Hogwarts in peace, but something peculiar is happening to him, something he never would have expected. It's all rather embarrassing and making his life very complicated.
Veela!Character: veela!Draco

My comments: Seraphim!Harry. Veela!-turned-Seraphim!Draco. A Harry who singlehandedly defeated Voldemort. A Draco who singlehandedly led a revolt in House Slytherin. Naturally, nothing they do can ever be anything but impossibly extraordinary.


Title: Where They Shall Not Pine
Author: Laurence Ashton
Rating: R
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: Harry and Draco are coming of age in the wizarding world - in more ways than one might expect for boys of seventeen. And as they struggle to move forward, they are ever haunted by the past. It would be easy to turn from the path down which duty and legend has propelled them - it would be easy to reject strife and prophecy. But it is by accepting responsibility that boys become men; and it is by exceeding expectations that men become legends themselves, taken to dwell where the deep magic runs free... taken to dwell where they shall not pine.

My Comments: While I cannot remember much about this story, or why I even read it in the first place, and thus have conflicted feelings about reccing it, it's an epic-length story (~68,000 words), with a side of powerful!Harry. One warning I feel I should give anyone who wants to read it, though (since apparently it annoyed me enough that I put it in my bookmark notes): at times too much description, especially of items of clothing (think half a page/whole page).
