just assume they’re all explicit, most of them are. read all of these before tomorrow so you can enjoy some GREAT fanfics before TFP ruins us, either for better or for worse. ik some of these are long but i usually don’t feel fully satisfied with the 3k ones, and i’m not putting in any novel-lengths. however, if you want to read all of these together, the wordcount becomes a generous amount that can distract you for at least a few hours :^)
all of these i have read more than once, and have loved VERY MUCH. please find yourself this last sweet relief before death. beware i am an angst queen so this isn’t a fluff fix-it rec, but all of these have happy endings ; u;
Between Friends by SilentAuror (18k) - sherlock is naked and tied up and john comes to save him, but sherlock’s body reacts… as does johns. some great john-in-denial, pining-but-frustrated sherlock, and it’s almost like a 5+1 because they keep getting into some compromising positions ;)
Drive by liveonmars (10k) - awesome little fic, it’s not a casefic or PWP or fluff but it has a bit of excitement in it!! basically the boys get stranded out on a deserted road with their car, and end up having to share body heat in the car to keep warm
Shadows on the Wall by AraSigyrn (18k) - now i went into this hoping for some specific/explicit johnlock, and while it IS a johnlock fic, nothing between them happens in it (but it reinforces that they belong together). basically, john becomes psychic in afghanistan. it’s a retelling of S1 and it makes you WISH john was psychic in canon, because it all makes SO much sense!!
The Thin Line by Odamaki (11k) - LOVE THIS basically both of them have to hop in a wardrobe to hide during a case. john gets an erection. it’s delightfully funny, my favorite part is when john is like ‘i need a…’ (moment) and then sherlock gropes him thinking that he was going to say ‘hand’ and john goes OH JESUS CHRIST NOT WHAT I MEANT
A Slowly Dawning Attraction by MitsuruAki (12k) - I HAVE READ THIS COUNTLESS TIMES!! it’s so in character and so so so cute. 5 times john and sherlock almost kissed, and the one time they did… the +1 is my favorite thing EVER my lordt
Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder by cypress_tree (11k) - also known as how much freaking UST can you read in one sitting. for an experiment, john and sherlock can’t touch each other for one month. you can probably guess what happens
We Go Anywhere But To The Groundby geordielover (25k) - i am the biggest fan of john!whump. this is the most angsty rec on this list, john goes to a dark place after TRF but when sherlock returns, they both build themselves back up together. very lovely
The Detective and the Pin-Up by XistentialAngst (16k) - huehuehue this one is great. a secret comes out - back in the army, john watson posed for a pin-up calendar and it effects sherlock VERY MUCH. it’s so hilarious, like everyone at the NSY ends up becoming attracted to john lmao
Their Great Reward by BeautifulFiction (10k) - i know it’s a bit late for christmas fics, but this is too damn good. it’s boxing day, and the electricity is out and both boys are stuck in baker street. the love moment is honestly to great and this is wonderfully in character
A Satisfactory Arrangement by SilentAuror (18k) - now that mary’s gone and john is back at baker street, john proposes that he and sherlock start having sex. no strings attached, of course. really very good, it shows them gradually coming together (pun intended) and i love the fwb-to-lovers trope
More Things Than Are Dreamt Of (Series) by 1electricpirate (38k) - lastly, potterlock, but complies with canon (for the most part haha). the cutest little series. it addresses the thing i want to do EVERYTIME; when sherlock is going to jump off the roof, john yanks him back!! it’s one of the fandom classics, so even if you aren’t a fan of harry potter (i’m not the BIGGEST fan myself), it’s gorgeously written and my personal motivation towards how i want to write a magical realism fic someday :-)
i hope this helps y’all out. i don’t know how interested i’ll be in reading johnlock after The Final Problem, for whatever reason, so i’d thought i’d put together a little list while i still have the motivation. i hope this can distract y’all from the Fuckening for a little bit <3
It’s been a long time; I know. Thank you so much for your patience. Life gets in the way sometimes, but this 19k word chapter is probably another reason why I took so long and I just couldn’t split this up. I think it was worth it. Please enjoy and let me know your thoughts on the chapter if you can❤ And wow, I just reached 500 followers on this account; *consider this a gift and a big thank you!!
- We Were Made to Love
: “Everything all sorted? Need help with the buckles? I know they’re a bit tricky in this compartment.”The
voice startles Louis out of his daze, and he turns toward the voice to
let him know he figured it out. When he catches sight of the owner of
the voice, though, his response dies in his throat. Whatever he had
imagined the conductor of a children’s train that rides around the
shopping centre in Leeds would look like, this is certainly not it.Leaning
through the window, arms folded across the sill, is a green-eyed angel
with cherry red lips stretched wide in a smile and dimples flirting in
his cheeks. A black conductor’s hat is the only confirmation that this
is not some gorgeous stranger who’s come to flirt with Louis through the
window of a children’s train, but is just a man doing his job.[or,
Harry drives a kiddie train in the shopping centre for the summer and
is obsessed with babies, and Louis never stood a chance.] (16k)
- You Take Me Over, You’re the Magic in My Veins
: Louis can feel Harry’s eyes on him as he turns to head toward
his seat. He tucks a secretive smile into the palm of his hand while he
slides into place beside his sister, his mother’s seat still empty as it
awaits the Queen’s entrance. He knows he should be behaving himself a
bit more, should be focusing his attention on Gemma, rather than her
brother. He’s working on borrowed time, is expected to announce his
engagement to the Princess within the next few weeks, but he can’t seem
to help himself. Gemma is lovely, kind and witty and beautiful, but he
has no interest in being married to her, had no interest in marriage
before her arrival, period.Teeth sunk into his bottom lip to
disguise his smile, Louis risks a quick glance toward Gemma and Harry’s
usual seats, finds Harry already seated and staring steadily back at
him. His hair is a mess from Louis’ fingers and his cheeks are still
flushed, and Louis’ heart gives a heavy, delighted thud. No, he thinks,
he has no desire to be betrothed to Princess Gemma, but he finds he
wouldn’t mind being married after all, if it was Prince Harry he was
promised to, instead. (36k, Royal!AU)
- wrapped in light, in life, in love : (…) Of all the things to happen while taking care of his niece for a
month, falling in love with his boyhood crush all over again is probably
the highlight of Harry’s autumn.Well. That, and getting pregnant. (19k)
- We Made These Memories for Ourselves
: Breath held, Harry squints his eyes open and focuses on the
first stick. A blue line. Harry breathes out an unsteady breath. He’s
pretty sure he read that one blue line is a negative, but he fishes the
box from the bottom of the pile just to make sure.“Negative,” he confirms, voice echoing around the small room. “Next.”Now
that he’s feeling a little less shaky, he scans the rest of the tests
at once, is met with a headache-inducing mixture of pink plus signs and
blue double lines. His heart rate picks up until it’s pounding
triple-time in the base of his throat and the pit of his stomach,
thundering in his ears and throbbing in his temples. He flips over the
rest of the boxes slowly, but he knows what they’re going to say before
he even looks.[or, Louis is a footballer, Harry owns a bakery, and they’re having a baby.] (17k)
- All About Us
: When Harry and Louis’ teenage daughter bring a boy home for the
first time to meet them Louis tries to act as the protective father and
Harry just wants everyone to be happy. Throughout the night and
protests from their daughter, Louis and Harry reminisce about how they
met and overtime share their story with the boy that seems to look at
their daughter the same way Louis once and still looks at Harry. (137k):
yes, you make my life worthwhile
: Harry whispers to him that this feels like every dream he’s had
for the last three years and Louis kisses his temple, behind his ear,
across his cheeks and by the edge of his jaw. He runs the back of his
finger across Winnie’s sleep-warm cheeks and sighs, the weight of the
world finally off his shoulder.
Louis’ a pediatrician, Harry’s a preschooler teacher, and they’re having a baby. (9.6k)
everywhere (i wanna be with you)
: Harry and Louis meet because they have terrible friends, they
fall in love because something feels right in a world of uncertainty and
shifting grounds. Louis is an actor and Harry is a model at the top of
his game, the best things in life are the most unexpected ones and the
things that hit you when you are least expecting it.Featuring
winter in London, nights in Paris, early mornings in New York, burning
heat in Monte Carlo and an enduring love spent transcending four corners
of the globe. (42k)
Needing You More and More, Let’s Give Love A Try
: ‘Do not get hard, do not get hard,’ Harry chants in his head.
It’s working, but Harry still breathes a silent sigh of relief when
Louis lets go of his wrists and clambers off of him. He doesn’t move for
a moment, just watches Louis fuss nervously with his fringe before
saying, “Why don’t we go walk off breakfast?”Harry only hesitates
for a second, then nods. He gets to his feet with a quiet, “Be right
back,” and heads back to his bedroom to get dressed. Once safely
enclosed in his room, Harry glares down at his belly and scolds, “It’s
bad enough that you’re messing with my body temperature, do you have to
mess with those hormones, too?”There’s no answer from the baby,
but Harry takes that as surrender. Pausing by his bed, Harry takes a
second to shake off the residual, lingering embers of arousal before
choosing an outfit for the walk. He’s already pregnant with a stranger’s
baby, the last thing he needs right now is to be lusting after his best
friend.[OR when Harry gets pregnant after a one night stand,
Louis helps him get everything together, from buying pregnancy clothes
to taking him on a babymoon. Somewhere along the way, they realize that
their feelings for each other are more than platonic.] (33k)
Only You Can Be My Alpha
: Louis has never liked being an Omega. As if it wasn’t enough to
despise what he was born into, he couldn’t even be what he was
correctly. Harry Styles changes all of that.OR The one
where Louis is banished from his tribe, and lands himself in Harry’s
instead. The alluring Pack Alpha makes Louis question his nature and he
doesn’t know how he feels about that. But you can’t fight destiny.(154k)
a couple months too long
: “I mean who wouldn’t be scared when a cute little twink comes
to tell a famous rockstar that the great sex in a doorway they had ended
with a baby.” And yeah, now Louis is staring at him with wide eyes. Louis is a fan of Harry’s and they fuck and end up with a child. (21k)
It’s not fully-fledged Stony, but it’s absolutely brilliant, full of hidden gems though angsty. Worth reading 100%. Kinda like «Captain America: Civil War theoretical justification of consequences 101». Idk how to put it better, so… just read it, it’s truly beautiful though bittersweet. Oh, and Hawkeye is awesome, as always. And T’Challa is awesome too. And everyone is apparently wiser than Steve (figures) :) And FRIDAY is so sweet & …. oh my I don’t even know why I’m still talking, just go & read it already :)
“He should have an Avenger with him.” Steve murmured, too quiet to be heard.
Evidently not. For Sam smiled next to him, lips twisted, voice filled with a queer, bitter compunction. “Which one? The android or the cripple?”
“Sometime during that battle, the fight stopped being about freedom and the Avengers’ ability to save the world when it needed them, and became about protecting Bucky Barnes instead. And while I’d never back down from saving a man’s life, Captain.” Clint’s eyes flashed, from things brighter than emotion. “We damn well should have had the right to make that choice for ourselves.”
Sam Wilson is awesome. And basically every phrase is gold.
‘I was angry, you know, so angry when he kept Ultron a secret from all of us.’ Steve’s laugh was an ugly sound. ‘I was so mad at him. Even though Bruce was also involved, I could forgive him. Even after I found out that it was Wanda who had pushed Tony into such desperate measures through her mental manipulations, I still forgave her. But Tony, I was still so angry with him. Something that big, I trusted him to tell me about it. Instead, he kept it from me, lied to me and only told me the truth when it blew up in our faces.’
‘He didn’t think that we would listen; that we would understand. Sam, he only wanted to protect us.’ ‘I only wanted to protect him.’
As good as you can possibly imagine & even better. Angst, chemistry & tension, sooooo many emotions and, of course, happy ending. This one is imperative to read. It’s classic, and it’s gold, and it’s EVERYTHING.
“Tell me,” Tony said quietly “how is it that I always get the impression you expect the worst from me, in advance, and then, afterwards, you still manage to be disappointed in me somehow, every fucking time?”
After all, who did he value more – a few friends who had gotten him through a world he couldn’t even recognise, a few friends who he had fought with, had drinks with, respected, laughed with? Or the one friend he had known since he was just a kid in the early forties? Who had been through everything with him, who had followed him through anything? A friend that he had lost and mourned and found again?
Tony knows what he’s doing, he knows what he’s saying. He knows he probably shouldn’t. But for once, he just wants to have the freedom to burn everything. It’s been his job to preserve, to clean up, to repair, to fix. The sour, stinging center of him just wants to be expulsive like he used to be, to blow everything up and leave it behind for everyone else. He wants to rip Steve to shreds, because Steve doesn’t care that he ripped Tony to shreds.
Maybe he can’t burn everything, but maybe he can burn the man who left him the smoldering shell of what they’d built.
Hiya! I was looking through your fic rec masterpost and noticed you had a bottom harry fic link but not a bottom louis one, so I was wondering what are some of your favorite bottom louis fics?
Oh good question !
let me make a thing of cream and stars
: It doesn’t explain why he’s lying on the floor, with Harry Styles, of all people, planking on top of him.As
in, seventeenth most influential person in London,
pop-star-turned-rock-star Harry Styles. The same Harry Styles who has
had countless model girlfriends, left, right and centre. Also the same
Harry Styles who has been the subject of Louis’ wet dreams since he was
about eighteen.(Or: Louis is a Radio 1 DJ and Harry is a pop-star he interviews.) (24k)

Louis sits up with lightning speed and presses the article link, and
nearly feels his heart stop when he sees a picture of himself through

burn to ash
:Harry is sitting there, so fucking casual, and Louis realizes
in a split second he was not ready. When Harry walked out in Detroit and
never looked back, he was a boy verging on a man, still only twenty
years old, but there’s a man in his place now. Hard and resolute, yes,
but still, for the first time in a long time, Louis can kind of see the
old Harry in him. The soft, directness of his gaze, the hesitant smile
he gives to Lou, the way he wrings his ridiculously large hands in his
lap.He’s a little bit the eager sixteen year old puppy dog again, his
innocence and sweetness resurrected miraculously, and Louis freezes in
place. He was prepared to face the asshole Harry. He was prepared to
meet a whole new Harry. Louis is not prepared to meet one of the old incarnations of Harry, and it absolutely tears him up.Or the fic where Harry spirals out of control, the band breaks up, and then he shows back up, five years later. (116k)
Torn On The Platform
:AU where harry and louis are strangers but they always get the
same train to work in the morning and one day harry falls asleep on
louis’ shoulder. louis wants to be annoyed because harry just broke a
least seven rules of tube conduct but he looks so soft and peaceful that
he just lets him sleep and wakes him ever so carefully when it’s his
stop. it happens again and again until it becomes a regular thing where
louis will let harry snooze and then gently nudge him awake, hand him
the cup of coffee he took from him so it wouldn’t slip and spill
everywhere and send him off with a “have fun at work, love” and after
the tenth time harry isn’t even embarrassed anymore. Cue
changing work schedules, missing each other for the first time in
weeks, panicking because “i don’t even know his name, why didn’t i ask
for his name”, dramatic waiting on platforms and finally bumping into
each other again when they least expect it (27k)
Louis’ husband dies suddenly and he is left with nothing. Well, not
really nothing. He has Harry. And a St. Bernard puppy named Link, whom
his late husband left behind for him. Louis takes care of Link and Harry
takes care of Louis. Everything is okay until suddenly, it isn’t.
hear your voice, in the backseat of my car: Louis gracelessly dropped the back of his seat so he could
slide himself into the backseat, the fit tight and cramped and almost
too warm. He was unbuttoning his pants when he paused for a moment and
took in the sight before him. “Christ. Look at you.” Louis stopped
and just took in what he was seeing. He was speechless and a little
overwhelmed but very, very ready to see what would happen next. Louis drives a cab. Harry needs a ride. (8.5k)
Swim In The Smoke
: “What about this, Captain?” Liam asks, nudging the boy kneeling
between their feet with the toe of his boot. The boy hisses and swipes
at him, slurring out something unintelligible around the makeshift gag
Niall had to stuff in his mouth. He misses by a mile and tries again,
just as ineffectively.Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun
streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his
mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over
with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious,
next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s
something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain.
Something he can’t quite put his finger on.“Put him in my cabin,”
Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot. The boys
screams out jumbled curse words at Harry’s back, muffled by the gag,
and Harry can’t understand any of it. (101k)

pushes him into a bathroom stall and drops down to his knees in front

I haven’t been around to read a lot of HL as I used to, but these are my current favorites, basically these are just the ones I actually managed to finish lately, so here you go; not in a specific order, or category.
You can message me if you want me to find a certain fic, category, theme or even kinks. I’ll try to find it.
With his best friend and eternal roommate Zayn getting married and
abandoning him, Louis has planned the world’s biggest stag do to send
him off into married life – a week in Thailand showing him all the
things he’s going to be missing when he becomes a married man. But Zayn
has neglected to mention that Louis’ ex and their old uni friend Paddy
will be coming – along with his successful, rich new boyfriend.
Determined not to let Paddy ruin his fun once again, he enlists the help
of an attractive backpacker by the name of Harry, who good-naturedly
agrees to go along with pretending he’s Louis’ boyfriend for the week. A
week of sun, sea, booze and no-strings-attached sex beckons, but as
always, things don’t go quite as planned…

known as, Harry takes the summer before uni to travel Europe and meets
Louis in Barcelona, and they end up traveling together.
Harry is visibly buzzing with excitement as they get into the

few of the local businesses to say hello. No need to sit with one
finger on the trigger.”
“I don’t think you’ll need to worry about
me being trigger-happy, Lou,” Harry says with another one of his
megawatt grins, patting the water pistol holstered by his hip.
where Louis is the chief of police in a small sea-side town and Harry

Harry’s brow furrows, a look of confusion spreading over his face.
“But I am real. I exist, see,” he says, raising a hand out of the water
and wiggling his fingers at Louis.
Louis finds himself relaxing a bit. Harry seems
harmless really. And he’s quite cute, for something that’s not supposed
to exist. If Louis is indeed having a hallucination right now, at least
it’s a cute one.
AU where Harry is a mermaid, Louis is a human, and they both discover a lot more than they anticipated.
“Kind of hard to reach my back with it though, innit?” Louis asks.
“I’d need someone else to really reach my sore spots, wouldn’t I? In
fact, all of this would be a little nicer with someone to share it with,
Harry stares at him for a moment, clearly debating over what to say. Eventually he blurts, “I could draw you a bath.”
Finally. Louis grins and looks up at a horror-stricken Harry

Harry. Draw me a bath, though, are we sixty years old?”

Just Give Me One Thing (That I Can Hold On To)

the other one, so here it is.)

You Got Time
: The thing is, Louis wasn’t meant to exist without Aaron. They’d
grown up together and into each other. Forged together by pain and
trials they were too young to deal with. Forged by love too of course,
an absolute fuckton of the stuff. Melded together until they were two
halves of a whole. Now, Louis just feels like half a person.Or, the one where Louis’ pretty sure he’s already loved and lost his soulmate, and then he meets Harry.

Fast-forward many years and he’s happy again in Los Angeles. And he’s
got things figured out. And his life is complete. And then he sees Louis
again, which may change things a little bit.This is not a story
about not getting over your high-school boyfriend. This is a story about
moving on, about knowing that your first love can be just that- your
first love. But it’s also a story about falling for the same person
again - at a different age, at a different time, in a different
circumstance. Simply because it’s meant to be.
Larry ex to lovers (53k) : okay, so fair warning, at first, Harry is with a girl, Louis is fiance. But if you can go through that, it’s a great fic ! They both work in Music PR , it’s angsty (like … a lot, obviously), and there’s no cheating. Promise. Bottom Harry for the smut!

Do you know the Drarry fanfiction where the students have to do like group counseling and Harry and Draco are in the same group?
Hmm. This doesn’t sound familiar to me, but here are some that are similar:
Fics with H/D in a therapeutic setting
Only the Lonely by digthewriter - (NC-17, 21k) - Harry runs a support organization for survivors post-war and hires Draco as his assistant.
Welcome to Holding Hands by susan5124 - (PG-13, 19k) - Draco and Harry are Auror partners who can’t get along. Kingsley sends them to a counseling retreat to work it out, but it’s actually marital counseling and has some unexpected results.

Across from him, Morgana has her own booth and right next to her, Camelot’s Fire Brigade sells their calendar. When Morgana opens their yearly magic battle, Merlin gets to meet her brother Arthur, who is one of the fire fighters in the calendar. Merlin tries to get his fingers on it without being too obvious.

A Lord Without Land by Elveatas for fleete [Gwen/Merlin/Arthur:NC17:7.4k - canon] Later, Merlin would reflect that it was probably Gwen’s presence that saved his life. Or —because there was some part of him that wanted to believe Arthur could never kill him— saved him from eternal banishment.

Everything’s Ours by b0b for Sumi [Arthur/Merlin:NC17:14k - modern!AU] Merlin is a model with a secret. Arthur is rich and has no fashion sense. It can never work.
Wake Up Your Saints by lostlenore for fingerprintbruises [Arthur/Merlin:PG13:6.8k - modern!AU] It’s hardly Arthur’s fault that small-town witches attract big city trouble.

He’s just not sure if he’s brave enough to do it.
Choose and Choose and Choose by fleete for sophinisba [Gwen/Arthur/Merlin:NC17:11k - Canon] Arthur and Gwen make a sexy addition to their fantasy life in the form of a big-eared manservant. Neither of them actually intends to turn said fantasy into reality. That part happens by accident.

Lasting Impressions by cassie_black for spaceAltie [Arthur/Merlin:PG13:11k - modern!AU] Arthur has his sights set on Gwen. The trouble is, she thinks he’s a bit of dick. Now all he has to do is convince her best friend Merlin to persuade her otherwise.

Uther Pendragon, CEO of P.I., being a good friend of Gaius’ has his son Arthur share his flat with their newest employee to introduce him to the large city of Camelot, so very different to the small village of Ealdor where Merlin comes from. Their initial meeting isn’t a good one, and their enforced living situation is a little strange for them both, but Merlin slots into Arthur’s life perfectly, accepted into his circle of friends with ease, and both are able to force down their initial attraction to each other.
But how long can they both ignore it when their living situation shows them, time and again, that neither man is who the other first thought them to be, time and again they see the nobility and strength they never suspected lay beneath the surface?
When Can I See You Again? by isyotm for ms_worplesdon [Arthur/Merlin, Merlin/Gwaine:NC17:3.6k - modern!AU] Arthur is just trying to study in the library.
King of May by Emjayelle for lostlenore [Merlin/Arthur:PG13:5k - western!AU, fairy tale!AU] Right at the edge of Fort Albion—location: middle of bumfuck nowhere—there’s a saloon named Avalon, and behind its bar, Spring serves the drinks.
In the Winter of My Soul by ZairaA for Destina [Merlin/Arthur:R:19k - canon] When Merlin reveals his magic and then gets cursed in an attempt to save Arthur, he runs away - the idiot. To find him, Arthur has no choice but to take up with an unlikely ally. But to save him, he not only has to face and understand what Merlin really means to him, he has to get Merlin to believe him too.
The Unintentional Wooing Skills of Arthur Pendragon by giselleslash for ingberry [Arthur/Merlin:NC17:5.4k - modern!AU] Arthur is a master of wooing…if one defines master as ‘a complete and utter tragedy’. Somehow Merlin doesn’t seem to mind all that much.
One Moment More by beccadearie for ZairaA [Arthur/Merlin:PG13:9k - superhero!AU] Merlin and Arthur team up to fight evil, one Super Villain at a time, but Arthur can’t help wanting more.

But is it possible that the story is more than it seems? And will Merlin be able to see the wood for the trees?
Trust the book, don’t trust the people (or was it the other way around?) by leviathans_moon for silence_since_silence [Arthur/Merlin, Lancelot/Gwen, Gwen/Morgana:PG13:11.1k - modern!AU] It’s all Arthur’s fault. He suggested this horror book for their weekly book club sessions. Arthur brought it into the house. So it’s clearly his fault that things from the book start to happen to them.
When the First Frosts Arrive by viennajones for Emjayelle [Elena/Mithian:G:2.7k - modern!AU] There isn’t a place in the world where Elena feels like she belongs. There isn’t a person she belongs with either, not anymore, and in many ways that is the reason why she’s here, in a small town filled with superstitious people.
The Christmas Reunion by rotrude for cassie_black [Arthur/Merlin:NC17:31k - modern!AU] With life setting them on different paths, Merlin invites his dearest friends over for a last hurrah, a special Christmas reunion. They’re all going to stay together under the same roof, exchange gifts and shore up memories for the future. Some things go to plan; some develop in unforseen ways.
Merry Christmas, Cabbage Head by vix_spes for nomical [Merlin/Arthur, Leon/Morgana, Elena/Gwaine:G:3.8k - modern!AU] To say that Merlin was upset about spending Christmas with Uther Pendragon was putting it mildly…
Two Chances by alafaye for the Merlin Holidays Community [Arthur/Merlin:G:2.2k - modern!AU] Their first chance was gone before it could happen, but the second might work out.
Moonlight Serenade by Magnolia822 for Cookie [Merlin/Arthur; Arthur/Gwen:NC17:21k - historical!AU] Eve of WWII, London. Merlin Emrys has led a quiet middle-class life until the night he meets the son of his old school nemesis.

And he can never learn Merlin’s darkest secret.
Desert Places by Cookie for the Merlin Holidays Community [Merlin/Arthur:PG13:7k - modern!AU] Merlin and Arthur are both alone, and life looks bleak – but who knows where a chance meeting will take them.
A blip on the radar by winterstorrm for CaseyStar [Merlin/Arthur:NC17:7k - modern!AU] Arthur had believed that one night with Merlin would be all he could have. Until he’d had one night with Merlin. That’s when it all went to hell.
We Wish You A Merry Ofsted by nomical for rotrude [Merlin/Arthur, Gwen/Leon, Elena/Gwaine, Mithian/Will, Morgana/Nimueh:NC17:36k - modern!AU] A story that chronicles the lives of our gang as teachers and students leading up to the winter holidays. Merlin and Arthur are dumb face in love as usual, but it takes them a while to get any traction. Merlin has a lot to learn and Arthur just cares too damn much. Their colleagues are fed up, the kids are okay, Merlin and Arthur just can’t catch a break, and everyone loves Gwen. So not much different than canon.
Five times Percival said no to Arthur and one time he didn’t by Aeris444 for eurydice72 [Arthur/Percival, side Merlin/Gwaine:PG13:6k - canon] The day Arthur met Percival, he knew the man was different and wanted to know him better. Though, Percival wasn’t easy to approach and slowly drove Arthur mad as he kept saying no to the Prince.
Let’s be glad by Lullabylily for vix_spes [Merlin/Arthur:R:2.7k - modern!AU] Arthur is forced to play Santa at his company’s annual Christmas party…
The Road to Broðorsibba by gwyllion for mssdare [Arthur/Merlin, Arthur/Merlin/Mordred:NC17:10k - canon!AU] After a falling-out with his father, Arthur finds himself imprisoned by two young Druids. He spends a winter in captivity where he learns that he is to become the greatest ruler of Albion. Although Arthur embraces his destiny, he doesn’t suspect that fulfilling his earthly purpose may have dire consequences.
Protect His Truth by eurydice72 for Aeris444 [Merlin/Percival:PG13:9.2k - canon] For Merlin, it was falling at first sight. Literally. Having a crush on Camelot’s new knight, however, makes hiding the truth about his feelings as well as his magic a little more difficult.
An Equal Exchange by glim for matchboximpala [Bradley/Colin:PG13:2.1k - RPS] It’s probably the late hour, or the way Bradley really was almost asleep when Colin started talking to him, or the thoughtful way Colin looks at him and smiles instead of looking belatedly annoyed at him. It’s one or all of those, because Bradley just shrugs and says, “All right, that trip was pretty horrible. Is it too late to make it up to you?”
Snowstorm by mssdare for RocknVaughn [Arthur/Merlin:NC-17:8k - canon!AU] After Uther’s death, Arthur sets out on a quest to find Merlin. But gaining Merlin’s trust–after Arthur betrayed him so severely in the past–might be an impossible challenge.
For the Love of Camelot by RocknVaughn for Lullabylily [Arthur/Merlin:NC-17:28k - canon] When the newly crowned King Lot of Essetir comes to Camelot with the intention of making peace, Arthur and Merlin are hopeful that this will be just one more step in their bid to peacefully unite all of Albion. They couldn’t have been more wrong. Soon, Merlin finds himself in a situation that will test the limits of what he would do and how far he would go…for the love of Camelot.
Coffee, Baked Goods, and Christmas by solookup for alafaye [Arthur/Merlin:PG:5.7k - modern!AU] Each year Morgana hosts a Christmas Party. Every year, Arthur goes to the party without a plus-one. Someone in his life isn’t going to wait forever and maybe this is the year he decides to do something about it. And something something about coffee and baked goods.
5 Times Arthur Helped Merlin With a Case + 1 Time He Really Fucking Didn’t by ingberry for GeekLover [Arthur/Merlin:NC-17:8k - modern!AU] Camelot – the town where mansions are ten a penny, the town that welcomes film stars, famous authors, an ex-Spice Girl and the IT-investors of the 90s. The home to sixth form parties that cost enough to feed a whole family for months. Also home to Hunith Emrys Investigations, Camelot’s only private detective agency.
so we all know niall really loves his black and white e-guitar which he used all the past gigs he probably shares a bed with it, i mean he even kisses it so one day in nashville harry randomly decides to go shopping around in a guitar shop (looking like some kind of upcoming indierocker) and buys a rather expensive old school Gibsbon Les Paul E-guitar he doesnt even fuckin play the E-guitar
and then out of nowhere the next day niall rocks the stage with a well… brand-new 1995 Gibson Les Paul E-Guitar
let’s not talk about how harry brought a kid on stage and they both were so endeared and looked like a freaking proud parents showing off their kid bc that really hurts
SO IT SEEMS A LOT TO MY THAT HARRY CASUALLY BOUGHT A NEW 19k DOLLAR WORTHY BABY FOR HIS PRICELESS BABY!
Okay parentinglarenting here are some fics I liked a lot. This is NOT a comprehensive list. ahah obviously. but anyway, to start out I’m just going to try to give you an overview of some fics of various lengths that I thought were good. I’ll probably get overly enthusiastic about things, sorry. Let me know if you have questions!!
Harry has never been much of a fighter, but—as always—where Louis Tomlinson is concerned, a lot of things stop being true.
1940’s AU. Even after six years apart, they can’t forget their shared wartime childhood.
This fic is so emotional and well-written. I got all sort of deep pains in my heart from it and almost cried a few times. In general I recommend all the stuff eravain has written.
Louis couldn’t be prouder of his bake, but there’s
something—there’s something. Something about Harry Styles and the
earnest way he measures, pours, mixes, scrapes. Something about the tip
of his tongue poking out of his mouth as he knocks the air out of his
or a great british bake off au in which louis cares about winning
and winning only, harry is made of sunshine and rainbow sprinkles, and
niall sticks his nose into other people’s business. also featuring liam
as louis’s best friend-slash-concerned mother, and zayn as a macaron
Harry and Louis are both great in this and the sexual tension is like A++++++++++++. I felt like I was dying. Also it was funny. Same thing as with eravain, I recommend anything by hattalove. I particularly like amaryllis (the werewolf fic) and ever ever after (an enchanted AU) also.
You have C Lunch?” Louis asks, peering over at
Harry’s work. The problem Harry’s just finished is printed neatly, the
correct answer circled. Harry’s finger marks the next problem in his
book as he copies it onto the page. It doesn’t look like he’s stealing
the answers out of the back. Nice.
He’s dimpled and smart.
And probably gay.
[The American High School AU in which no one is cool (except Niall) and Harry wears a rainbow bracelet.]
This fic is so great because it really feels like they are real high school students. Also they are nerdish in a real life kind of way. Like we were in high school. (okay, ahahah I know you are like, easing into this fic thing a little bit, but if you wanted to branch out – first, alert me – and then I will explain ABO fic to you and then you can read the harry you little shit series that juliusschmidt is doing, because it’s amazing.)
The first time they talk isn’t the first time they’ve met.
the very first time Louis remembers hearing Harry Styles’ deep, deep
voice, he’s just won gold at the World Equestrian Games and he’s
officially back on Great Britain’s Olympic team. He’s also three sheets
to the wind, drunk on victory and champagne, and there’s a gorgeous boy
whispering in his ear. Life’s grand.
or: Louis and Harry are professional riders on the same Olympic team.
Okay this is a WIP, just FYI. I love it because the subject reminds me of Jilly Cooper, and also the tone is just like that, too. I’m not sure how to describe it. Witty and unsentimental, but not cynical? I don’t know. Anyway, it super works for me and I get really happy whenever it updates.
No one can say Louis isn’t motivated to win The Amazing Race. He
wants to be the best partner Liam can have, and his mum could definitely
use the million quid. But. He noticed Harry two seconds after reading
their first clue and then sort of hasn’t stopped. How could he, Harry’s a
two-metre, tattooed, good-humoured charmer who probably has an arsenal
of bad jokes and fifty pets with unimaginative names. So he kept an eye
on him, like he would all their competitors. Just to measure him up.
Or, an Amazing Race AU where Louis and Liam are the driven,
athletic guys who are in it to win it, Harry and Niall are the useless
best friends that get by due to luck and possibly magic, and somewhere
between Italy and Japan Louis falls inconveniently in love. (Also Zayn
is the supermodel host.)
You probably wouldn’t go wrong reading all the LoadedGunn that is available. There is great dialogue and it’s always genuinely funny. I also like it how the tone is always warm. This Amazing Race one is super re-readable. I also really love the Formula One AU.
“Hey!” Niall exclaims, nudging Harry in the side.
“Hey, isn’t that - Wait. Why are you so red?” His eyes narrow for a
moment, and then he hits Harry on the shoulder again, harder. “No
fucking way,” he breathes, his face growing impossibly wide with glee.
“Are you actually fucking telling me you’ve been coming – no, sneaking - around here every week in secret because you still have a mad crush on Louis Tomlinson?”
Or, Uni AU in which Gemma, Liam and Louis are One Direction, and Harry is the World’s Most Supportive Brother - really.
Just super cute and like a little tiny bit of mini angst. hahaha i love mini angst where you know it’s not going to hurt for that long so it’s the best.
When Louis first saw Harry at the 2010 X Factor
Auditions, he thought he was watching a peculiarly special stranger. But
Harry has known Louis ever since he was five years old.
Louis has a rare genetic disorder that causes him to Time Travel to
important moments in his past and in his future - and to Harry, always
to Harry. When they’re put into a band together, it seems like
everything Harry has been waiting and wishing for has finally come true.
Except for the small fact that Louis doesn’t know that Harry is in love
with him- that Harry’s always been in love with him. Fate, it would
seem, is just getting started.
A story about growing up and growing together, and the impossible love that makes it all worthwhile.
It’s based off the time traveler’s wife, I don’t know if you read that book. Anyway, it’s VERY well written. Again, I don’t know how adventurous you are willing to get, but this author also wrote a SUPER good mpregish type fic. It’s really melancholy but like, I don’t know, so well written.
When Louis has the worst day of his life, it’s only because Harry hasn’t accidentally walked into it yet.
Featuring Louis as Ariel in a production of The Tempest,
Harry as a happily overworked pastry chef, Niall their cheerleader,
Zayn their less vocal but equally enthusiastic cheerleader, Kinder
Surprises, stiff peaks, and someone getting punched by mistake.
I just felt happy the whole time while I was reading it. ahah that’s pretty much what I remember from it. Also this author wrote a fairy AU that made me cry, so you could read that too.
Okay, that seems like enough for now. There is so much GREAT FIC. So like, whenever you want more, just tell me and I’ll make another rec. In fact here is a link to a marcel fic rec I did in advance.
