ETA 3/26/13: THIS BLOG IS CURRENTLY ON AN INDEFINITE HIATUS AND HAS BEEN FOR A YEAR. AS OF NOW, WE DON’T SEE OUR RETURN COMING ANY TIME SOON. EVEN IF YOU SEE US POST/REBLOG SOMETHING FROM TIME TO TIME, I CAN ASSURE YOU THIS DOESN’T MEAN WE ARE “BACK”. SORRY :( WE DO STILL RECEIVE YOUR MESSAGES AND WILL GLADLY REPLY IF YOU HAVE A SIMPLE QUESTION OR FRIENDLY HELLO, BUT. PLEASE KNOW THAT IF YOU SEND US ANY VAGUE OR COMPLICATED FIC SEARCHES OR REC REQUESTS AT THIS TIME IT IS VERY LIKELY TO GO UNANSWERED! (if you’re interested, you can find us here at our current rec blog.)
this is essentially the gigantic rec list of two girls who are a little bit too obsessed with harry and draco. we also post any graphics, art or fanmixes we may come across. if you have any questions or need help finding something, feel free to leave us a message and we’ll help you out the best we can! we hope you enjoy your time here and find it helpful :)
• where do i start? if you’re new to drarry or simply overwhelmed, we suggest starting at the classic fics tag. these are some of the best fanfics the h/d fandom has to offer and many of them are up to ten years old. they are what made this fandom and ship what it is today, so it never hurts to begin here. otherwise, you can browse the library for whatever peaks your interest first, whether it be a certain genre or era.
• why haven’t you answered my message? please remember that this blog is a hobby for us. we have lives and responsibilities outside of tumblr. we do love and care about this blog a lot (and often refer to it as “our baby”), but sometimes we aren’t going to be able to answer messages right away, especially as most questions we get require extensive googling and searching around the h/d community. please be patient and we’ll try our best!
• can you rec any ___ fics? if you ask us a very generalized question (for example asking us to rec “long, angsty fics” or “a really hot pwp”) it will be deleted and ignored. sorry, but this is why we work hard to maintain our library. however, don’t be afraid to come to us for something more specific! if you have a more detailed request (for example, “an mpreg eighth year fic” or “an infidelity fic that doesn’t involve ginny or astoria”) we would love to help you find what you need!
• why isn’t (insert fic here) in the library? this is important to understand: we are not a fic archive, we are a rec list. we are all about quality over quantity. we will never rec a fic we haven’t read and if we didn’t absolutely adore it, it’s not getting posted. so please do not hound us to add a fic or an author to the list as ultimately this blog is only for fics WE like and that WE want to recommend to the fandom! of course, there is always a chance we haven’t read the fic yet and we are always happy to get recs from you guys in our ask box :)
• can you recommend some really great fics to read? i don’t have time to dig through all of them. alright, we’re about to get real here: this is the most obnoxious, headache-inducing request we receive. again, this is a rec list. any and every fic you find here is going to be, in our opinion, worth reading. for the love of voldemort, just pick any fic.
• what is your opinion on ____? we often get questions asking about our fanfiction preferences or h/d opinions. as devoted drarry shippers, of course we love (and i mean love!) discussing these things and think it’s awesome that you give a crap about our opinion. however, we really like keeping things simple and impersonal here, so we avoid answering these. if you’d like to talk to us about the ship in detail, you are welcome to leave a message on our personal blogs!
• can you rec any dramione(/other pairing but for some reason we always get dramione?!) fics? this is a strictly drarry blog and we will never discuss any other pairings. ever. also, we both do not read het fics, which of course includes dramione. there are lots of blogs and communities out there devoted to just about any pairing you can imagine, so please search out those that you need. we can only help you with harry and draco here. (ps - if you’re looking for dramione recs, head over to hawthornandvine!)
