Title: Euphoria (at AO3)
Author: birdsofshore for The 2015 Harry Potter Cross Gen Fest at HP CrossGen
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~22,500
Main Pairing: Draco/Albus Severus, Albus Severus/Scorpius, Draco/Albus Severus/Scorpius
Summary: A fire is prickling in the pit of my belly. I feel a little like I'm watching this happening to someone else. Al's sitting there, reeking of another man's sweat and come. He looks miserable and anxious... but also well-fucked. I look at his mussed hair, his bitten lips. I've never wanted him more.
Warnings: Where do I start? It's a 22k PWP. O_O. Serious consent issues, sex under the influence of alcohol and potions, voyeurism, a threesome, jealousy, a little angst, infidelity kink, orgasm delay, powerplay, wanking, really quite a lot of anal sex, kind-of incest, a tiny bit of H/D UST, age disparity 19/45.

Birdsofshore sure knows how to build up the heat. This fic is on fire from the get go but by the end it's molten lava coursing through your veins.

So I need to mention that parent/child incest is a big squick for me. This fic does not contain outright incest, but really borders along the edges. Lucky for me, I will try anything, I actually love to push myself through squicks, what can I say I'm a glutton for punishment, This fic, however, was nowhere near punishment. It's another one of my fave kinds of fics, where there is sweetness at times, but also high doses of just plain wrong. Delicious.

I love birdsofshore's characters. (My bias always tends to picture authors as female, please correct me when I inevitably get it wrong) Her Slytherins are fantastic, manipulative and somewhat cruel, jealous and at the same time so concerned with Albus' well being. I'm always delighted at how much emotion and character depth she manages to convey in her PWP.

I haven't rec'd any of her stuff before because it's been a while since I read any of her fics. She is one of the first fanfic authors I read and her fics really hold up, her Unguarded series is what motivated me to branch out from Drarry, which helped me find my OTP, Snarry. So, this rec is all gushy and fangirl, but what can I say, birdsofshore deserves it. You can't go wrong reading her fic.

Title: A Certain Kind Of Fool also at walkingtheplank
Author: asnowyowl
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 38,976
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Summary: For Severus, everything changes when Harry and his children move into Hogwarts. Albus Severus has taken a liking to him and it seems Harry Potter has a secret.
Warnings: Partially epilogue compliant. Includes rimming.

Nice, sweet fic, romantic. Yes, I can enjoy those as well.

Albus worms his way into Snape's heart, softening him up, with his persistant attachment to the grumpy man. It's a long process but the author patiently takes us through it and it's so adorble. You can't help but love it. Read when you want something sweet and light with great characters, a nicer Severus Snape, and some well developed relationships.

Like I said, this fic is sweet, but in no way sacharine. I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I read it pretty late at night so it is a bit fuzzy. That's okay, though, from the notes I took just before going to bed, it looks like I was more than interested in giving it another read through.
