Hot Art:
Beech and Phoenix Feather, 11 Inches by currently anon (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy | G)
Summary: Harry’s in urgent need of a new wand. After exhausting both the selection and employees at Ollivander’s, he not only breaks, but smashes the “out of hours” no contact rule of the shop’s new owner, tracking Draco down at his workshop in the Alps, optimistically trusting in their new but tentative friendship.
Seekers Seeking by current anon (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy | G)
Summary: It's 8th year and Harry finally gets some peace and quiet. Perhaps too much quiet. Maybe Malfoy's seeking the same since he followed him to the pitch this morning.

Hot Recs:
Crytography by currently anon (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy | NC-17 | 19,000 words)
Summary: Draco Malfoy is still a puzzle that Harry Potter wants to solve. Good thing they both solve puzzles for a living.
Hush, Darling by currently anon (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy | NC-17 | 23,600 words)
Summary:: Draco is in trouble; to get out of it he needs to seduce Harry Potter.

We're halfway through the month and moving right along! A couple of things to note:

1. A few claims were past their expiration date and have been removed. If you were interested in filling a prompt but found that it was claimed, check it again. If you claimed a prompt and are still working on it, you'll want to go back and reclaim it.

2. We expect some new prompts to appear soon, so if you're still looking for a tempting prompt to fill, keep an eye out over the next few days.
