eight: voice already thick with sleep and the promise of a hangover  
Insert standard apologies about not updating here. EDIT: Sorry, just found out that LJ has been eating my posts. Well, not really, my default security setting was members so no one could see them because I thought it was on public. Now you see them if you want to.

I found myself a new obsession, which is One Direction. Don't laugh or judge. Also, I read a bunch of fanfics about them and of course found a few to recommend. If RPF is not you're thing, then fine.

If you're pretty much convinced that Harry and Louis are in a relationship and want to spend days on reading perfect fanfiction, then go to wontsitstill and join the community and read by far the best fic you'll ever read, These Inconvenient Fireworks. This only applies if you've lived under a rock like me and haven't heard from this earlier. Seriously, it's worth the time.

Louis's eyes might be falling out of his head. He's not sure. He hopes the boy with the dolphin charm can fix his problems aka the one where Louis is anxious about a lot of things, Harry works at a bookshop and wears skinny jeans even though it's too hot, and they eat french fries in the park.

Every few seconds there's a blinding camera flash, and it's overwhelming even for Harry so he can't imagine how Louis feels. All he can do is hold his hand, tight, like they've never been allowed to in public before, and let all these middle-aged men with their zoom lenses get a good long look.

Harry's reminded far too often of that stupid you can look but you can't touch rule.

Harry giggles sleepily and Louis’ heartstrings give a little tug. “Come snuggle, then?” he asks hopefully, blinking up at Louis slowly. He brings a hand up to rub at his tired eyes. “Body heat and all that.”

"I need to find a wolf," said the sheriff's kid, voice full of gusto. Derek set his cigarette in his empty whiskey glass. He let the silence between them settle, though it was drowned already by the band tinkering away by the bar. He waited until the boy was blushing, unsure and tense, before responding, slow and languid: "You found one."

Tumblr!AU. Louis is an insecure mess and he hides behind his blog. Harry's a boy with a personality too bright and he's everything Louis thought he would hate. They end up falling in love.

Future AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.

"Harry thinks he might not really know what okay is, but Louis is warm next to him, solid and constant and questioning. He’s all wide eyes and nerves and vulnerability. And this feels alright, this might be some sort of okay, Harry thinks." Future!fic, roadtrip!fic, OT5 friendship!fic.
