DTH FEST: [FIC] To Be Out of Your Own (and consumed by another)

Title: To Be Out of Your Own (and consumed by another)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Cassiara
Prompt: # 34
Summary: By now even Harry recognises the pattern; he’d be an idiot not to. He’ll have sex, and in the moment it’ll be amazing. In the moment he simply is, he feels without thinking. Good, bad, pleasure and pain, he can just let go and feel because he isn’t the one in charge. Then he wakes up the next morning feeling disgusting and worthless and swears to never do it again. Still, it helps him forget about his stress, his anxiety and his hopeless crush on his Auror partner so he keeps going back.
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): Unsafe BDSM (not Drarry), Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms, Violence, Brief Harry/OMC

Author's Notes: Thank you so much to the mods for being so patient and generous with extensions. Endless gratitude to my beta, Pineau_noir, for doing such an amazing job making this legible. This fic would probably have no smut at all if it wasn’t for MarchnoGirl and her brilliant smut-writing ways inspiring me into the right mindset. Thank you for all the cheerleading!

I want to thank: the mods of DTH; Pearshapedheterophobe who prompted this; my wonderful, incredible, amazing, lovely, (all the great adjectives in the world) betas phoenix4dragon and nerdherderette; my ever-present bb in fandom fictional and rockmarina. This is my huge hug for you all. 💙

DTH FEST: [FIC] The Nobility of Ascent

Title: The Nobility of Ascent
Author: lomonaaeren
Prompt: # 116
Summary: Not even his own fame and power are enough to get the Wizengamot to pass laws protecting Muggleborn and orphaned children, so Harry swallows his pride and goes to Draco Malfoy, who can teach him how to convince the prejudiced old bastards to listen to him. And Malfoy hasn’t even named a price. Which…concerns Harry, but he’s found a cause worth living for. And maybe someone, too.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Angst, discussions of canonical child abuse, brief violence
Word Count: 27.500
Author’s Notes: This was written for DarkBloodWolf13’s prompt of Draco helps Harry navigate pureblood society in order to influence their society from the inside out, and, as asked, includes Draco learning about Harry’s childhood. The title comes from the following quote by Henry Codman Potter (a coincidence, but a pleasing one):“If there be no nobility of descent in a nation, it is all the more indispensable that there should be nobility of ascent; a character in them that bear rule, so fine and high and pure, that as men come within the circle of its influence, they involuntarily pay homage to that which is the one pre-eminent distinction—the royalty of virtue.” My thanks to my betas Karen and Linda, and to DarkBloodWolf13 for such an awesome prompt! I hope you like the fic.

DTH FIC: Fate Has Different Plans, by MarchnoGirl (NC-17)

Title: Fate Has Different Plans
Author: MarchnoGirl
Prompt: # 12
Harry drew in a breath.
The man must have felt him, because he spun his head towards him, leaving Harry completely speechless. He was wearing a white mask, covered in plumages and diamonds around the eye holes. The diamonds were almost too shiny in the darkness of the room and made the man’s eyes pop out more evidently: they looked like liquid silver.
Or, where some casual anal fingering changes Harry’s destiny.

Thank you to my wonderful beta: OTPshipper98.❤️They encouraged me throughout the writing process and endured my silly crisis. I don't know if this work would be here without them.
By the way, I have to thank Lynn too because she was the first one to know about my idea and never stopped believing in it.
End notes: The therapy sessions portrayed in this fic are not meant to be taken as advice by the readers, as they are fictional.

Author's Notes: I saw this prompt just a few days before claiming opened and discussed a few ideas with a friend, when I blamed her for dragging me into yet another fest she said "And ode to me and why I'm your muse will be sufficient." She asks that all fanmail be sent to her personal assistant Hubert who is a one-eyed, peg-legged gnome with a Romanian accent. (much love to you my darling, this wouldn't exist without your enabling ways.)
Many thanks go to my beta, O for helping me so much when I needed it and encouraging me. Bonus cheerleading points to C and F. Thanks also go to Dig for prompting this piece and the other mods for this fest who are fantastic and brilliant.
