She wakes up to movement beside her. The sheets are tangled around her legs, twisted in an endless knot of fabric, she feels strangely cool, goose bumps rising on her skin and she lets out a muffled moan as she turns, trying to bury herself back into the sheets. Her head is pounding, a dull ache running through her and she burrows into the lumpy pillow, squeezing her eyes shut more tightly in hopes of falling back into the dark, peaceful oblivion. The bed dips beside her for a second and she is aware of movement and dim light and finally she pries open her eyes to squint upwards.

Grace is sat with her back to her. She’s already dressed again, her loose shirt hanging out of her britches and she’s pulling at her hair, braiding it down her back with nimble fingers. It takes Hannah a moment to click everything together, watching with fascination as Grace intertwines the strands quickly, before jolting suddenly upwards, clasping the sheet around her naked body.

A Little Piece of Home

A/N: I’m going to need to find a title for this thing. oh, and NSFW, but not in an uber way…

Silent DateRunning Late

I waited, patiently, for him to answer.

While I waited for him I chastised myself. I’d gone too far. I’d said too much. Sex was one thing. Trying to figure out if it was a relationship was something else.

If I could only give him space to think. Kinda hard with my legs in a vice around his waist and plastered to the wall. I did the only thing I could: I looked up instead of down. Maybe that’d give him room.

I felt his forehead on my sternum and his heat from every exhalation. His chest started to heave less and less.

I never used to ship J2 or any other RPF ship for that matter, but the last few weeks have really made me start to think that there is something going on between Jared and Jensen. They are acting like my two best friends did right before they came out as a couple.


Yep, Jensen and Jared are just too cute. 

Cristiano is different from what James expected. Well, different and yet not. He’s heard all the stories, of course, of arrogant Cristiano, selfish Cristiano, cocky and self-centered and better-than-you Cristiano. He’s idolized him for a while now — Cris’s career is everything James wishes his would be — but it’s difficult not to let his expectations be clouded. He’s still young, after all; how is he to know? 

What am I doing instead of writing my thesis? Writing Crismes fanfic, that’s what.

Real Madrid isn’t even legit my team but I just have so many feelings over these two. And now I’m writing fic. Actual football RPFs. Lord help me.

6 7 16 17 40 Please. :D

6. How do you feel about love triangles?

Already answered.

7. How do you feel about RPF?

I have a really complicated relationship with RPF.  Because intellectually I get that it’s basically a fictionalized version of real people, not actually them, so the same rules don’t necessarily apply.  That said, there’s more than a few that involve things that make me really uncomfortable, like cheating, that really turn me off.  I tend to avoid it now simply because I’ve been blindsided more than once.

On the whole, ship as you will, write as you will, but when it comes to RPF, I pretty much only ship what’s canon :D

16. Talk about a ship you initially disliked.

I don’t have one, that I recall.  If I dislike a ship initially, I’m not likely to change my mind.  I have to at least be neutral to be able to ship something later with any sort of ferocity.

17. Talk about a pairing you’ve stopped shipping romantically.

Also unlikely.  Once I ship two characters, they’re in it for the long haul, regardless of their feelings on the matter.

40. If you could change one thing about your OTP, what would that be?

For Moffat to have never written anything for them ever.

i would just like to let you know that I've decided that Harry and his "long hair don't care" plus fluffy chicken scruffy louis is pretty much a landslide fever dream.

RIGHT?  Lucy and I were talking the other day about how it’s kind of hilarious that we wrote long-haired Harry as a total fiction back when we were actually drafting Landslide, and now ever since we posted it he’s been growing his hair and it’s like, OOC that Landslide!Harry hates the long hair now!  Oh, well.  That’s the beauty of RPF, I guess… people act in ways you can’t predict. :P

Michael doesn’t remember when Gavin started acting strange- in fact, he hadn’t even noticed. But when Gavin spends the night one day and ends up having what looks like a stroke, Michael finds that there’s more to the situation than meets the eye.

in light of everything going on in the crabstickz/kickthestickz fandom right now i thought that some things needed to be said.

once again I am not against RPF or shipping real people in any way, in fact I ship a few real people myself and have read the odd RPF. 

I just think that a lot of people go too far without realising it and it makes everyone uncomfortable. so this happened.

Why it is okay to ship real people with other real people:

So in a post today mostly unrelated to what I want to talk about,  John Green stated, “It’s not okay to ship real people and other real people.” I respect John Green in all ways, but I disagree 100% with this statement, and I want to clear up why Real Person Fiction is not actually wrong.

The first important issue to cover is that RPF is not tinhatting is not harassment. If you ship something, you like to think about it, write about it, draw it, joke about it, talk about it with your friends, and it makes you happy in your own little corner of the world. This is okay. Tinhatting is when you believe your ship is really happening in real life and the Powers That Be are hiding it from you. This is also okay, until it becomes harassment, which is when you throw your ship into the involved people’s faces repeatedly in spite of requests to stop and you say nasty stuff about their girlfriends to them and generally make everybody unhappy. This is never okay.

But that’s not what shipping is, and that’s not what RPF is. The first point I want to make here is that RPF is not actually about real people.

I really do like my girl Jennifer Lawrence, but it’s super weird to me that so much of tumblr holds her up as the personification of this site and then boo hisses Kristen Stewart who has just a good a claim on that title. They’re both about the same amount of awkward, they’ve both said problematic shit, they both have equal difficulty dressing themselves sometimes (because if people are gonna diss Kristen’s fashion, shit, I saw the dior pantsuit Jennifer wore to the Silver Linings’ premier, and it was the first time that I’ve ever literally whispered “oh sweetie no” at my laptop screen). Kristen Stewart’s getting shat on for being injured while Jennifer Lawrence falling gets a standing ovation, and I just. Don’t. Get it. Like at all.

I’m not saying that if you like one you have to like the other, but it seems to me that Jennifer’s basically the socially acceptable form of awkward that involves a lot of smiling and genuine enjoyment of what is happening and is really just quirky while Kristen’s the other kind of awkward, the actually awkward kind of awkward where it’s uncomfortable and weird and off-putting because she’s so keenly aware of how much everyone is going to judge her, and it just seems like a website full of awkward motherfuckers like us should be overflowing with sympathy for her.

Fic: The stars above you and the streets below

Author: styleztomlinson

Pairing: Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson

Length: 22,078 words


"There’s a boy sitting on the opposite roof. He’s dressed in sweatpants and a hoodie, hunched over a book. Almost as if he can feel that Louis is (somewhat creepily, but, well) looking at him, he lifts his gaze from his book and meets Louis’ eyes.

Louis’ very first thought when their eyes meet is that the boy is really pretty.”

Inspired by the tags on this post. Louis and Harry are twelve and ten years old respectively the first time they meet, and everything after that just kind of happens, really.

RPF has existed for as long as there have been celebrities. Any media ‘based on a true story!’ is RPF. Any historical fiction narrative that co-opts a real person or real group is RPF. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar is RPF, and reflects reality just as accurately as the better and more lovingly, carefully written internet RPF of today: virtually not at all. The names remain - Julius Caesar, Mark Antony - as do certain simplified traits, the archetypal roles they play. In lieu of Actual Julius Caesar and Actual Mark Antony, we get AU!Caesar and an AU!Antony in a simpler, more dramatic narrative.

I'm pretty sure my mum's been reading it...She's just like, "Oh I was reading a funny story about you and Matt Smith on the Internet." I'm like, "Oh what's the story?" "Ooh, some stuff happened." I-I think that's what she's been reading. I'm not sure though.
