Author: [info]digthewriter
Characters/Pairings: Harry/Draco

Fic: In Deep (Harry/Draco; NC-17)

Title: In Deep
Author: [info]lq_traintracks
Pairings: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: 2) cock rings 3) discipline 4) flagellation
Other Warnings/Content: BDSM, dominant Harry, submissive Draco, Top Harry, bottom Draco, dirty talk, mild (consensual) name-calling, gags (silk, not ball), impact play/flogging, kink negotiation
Word Count: 8,800
Summary/Description: Harry isn't sure when he went from hating Malfoy's snide, smug mouth to wanting that mouth all over his cock.
Author's Notes: First off, a note on this being tagged 'discipline'. If you're super into discipline, this might not be what you're expecting, as it's talked about more than it's done. Expect impact play, D/s, sex… But there's very little *actual* discipline when they scene. That said, if discipline is a squick or trigger, mind the warning accordingly as well, just in case.

Okay then! I wrote this for my wonderful friend bixgirl's birthday. Bix, words can't describe how grateful I am that you and I became friends. In a relatively short time, you've become this indispensible person in my life. You deserve every happiness on this, your birthday. So here's some medium-core BDSM. *snorts* :DDD (Seriously when I decided to just write you whatever the Daily Deviant themes were for the month of August, I was a little startled by the intensity of the assortment. Lolol!) I hope you enjoy it! Much love to you, friend! Happy birthday!!! *balloons, balloons, balloons, confetti, confetti* *LOTS OF Draco's arse CAKE* ♥

Also, abundant thanks to [info]birdsofshore for the brilliant beta!
