Now that the Snarry a Thon has finished posting *sobs* am I the only one left wondering where I'm going to get my daily Snarry fix? *eyes torino10154
Anyway, I am caught up and so it's time for another recs post.
As always, these are the things that I loved, YMMV.Fics:Presumed Clarity
NC-17, 7672 words.
A story featuring a smart Harry who is attracted to Severus because of his keen mind (amongst other things)? Oh yes, please! I admit I've written prolly more than my share of clueless!Harry, who I adore, but this Harry, with his artistic soul and inventive charms and intelligence is one I'd love to see more of. And the sex scene is sizzling
. Pushing Buttons
, Equal Measure
and Balance of Power
(that sneaky devil!)
NC-17, ~2000 words each part.
These really should be read/taken all together since they are clearly connected. Harry launches the first salvo in 'Pushing Buttons' by cheekily trying to tempt Severus into breaking. Severus, being himself and a Slytherin, nurses the grudge and finally returns fire in 'Equal Measure', giving Harry more than he could have imagined. But Harry isn't a Gryffindor for nothing and he repays Severus in very sexy spades. A luscious series. The Chronos Factor

I'm not sure I have words enough to describe this one. This is a truly stellar piece of writing that took a lot of work and courage to attempt and the author succeeded brilliantly. Harry is living his life backwards, Severus is not. And yet this is a gorgeous love story. Just...trust me and read it. Aftermath
NC-17, 7362 words.
Yes, for those who are worried, there is
infidelity, and while this is not fluffy, it is very gritty and real and oh so hot. Severus and Harry encounter each other at Draco's wedding and find they have a lot in common, not just Draco. And I love the hint of more Snarry to come at the end. The Bite and the Cure
NC-17, 10,900 words.
In a rather interesting twist on the 'healing cock' trope, Harry is dying and only sex with Snape will save him. Snape, of course, makes it memorable and Harry wants more, but Snape's defenses get in the way. All I can say is thank goodness for Gryffindor determination. :)Catch and Release

I held my breath through reading this story, it was just that beautiful. This is a look at the Snarry relationship through the eyes of a very mature Ron, who only wants to see his best friend happy. I've read it twice already and am contemplating a third read, it's just that good. It's one of those fics I wish I had written. Arts:The Demon Lord Series: Master of Hollows
Beautifully detailed fabric and jewelery is only the beginning with this piece. Harry is just so...feral as he sits confidently on his throne, gazing out at his minions. And his pose... Unf. And Severus is his rock, his foundation. Gorgeous! By Heart
This stunningly beautiful art depicts the heated moment before a delicious kiss. *fans self* Fabulous. Mine
Tender and loving MPreg artwork featuring a glowing Harry and a deliciously possessive Severus. And that look that Harry's giving the viewer makes me shiver. :)Five Times A Chat-up Line Didn't Work on Harry Potter and One Time It Did
This 'mystery' artist never fails to make me chuckle. *g* This is a delightfully fun and comic piece.The Demon Lord Series: Mating
Another fabulously detailed piece, this time with Severus as the Dark Lord and Harry as his companion. And I can't blame Severus for keeping him naked, this Harry is fiiiine
. *drools* Another lush and amazing bit of art for this very prolific artist. My Side: Part Three of the Protector Series
This is the long awaited conclusion to the Protector Series which left us with a terrible cliffhanger, although, given this lovely conclusion, I guess I can forgive the artist and mods.
Beautiful work. ;)Fic/Art:In His Arms

Yes, I am reccing squid porn and I'm not even ashamed. This was delightful, with just the right mix of playfulness and sensuality and the art made me chortle. If want something light-hearted and sexy check this one out.
And that's it!
Sorry for the long (uncut) post, but I figure recs deserve to be shown off. Also, and I can't stress this enough, if you see something you enjoy, please leave the creator some love.
And if you spot something that you think I missed and feel so moved, do make a recs post. I love seeing what others enjoyed.
