Soulmate AUs

Soulmates had only been in the history books for the past few hundred years, so people were still trying to get the hang of it. From what he’s read, back then, if you met your soulmate, that was that. You either chose to be with them and be happy, or be with the one you truly loved and suffer.

Sort of poetic, you know, if he believed in that shit.

  • Pull Me Under : AU. As the first British footballer to come out at the prime of his career, it helps that Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term, committed relationship. Even if that relationship is fake. (Featuring Niall as Louis’ favourite teammate, Liam as Louis’ agent, and Zayn as Liam’s boyfriend, who just happens to be good friends with one Harry Styles.)

The shell of a man who could never be his best

Then baby, I’m perfect 

  • Unbelievers : It’s Louis’ senior year, and he’s dead set on doing it right. However, along with his pair of cleats, a healthy dose of sarcasm and his ridiculous best friend, he’s also got a complicated family, a terrifyingly uncertain future, and a mortal enemy making his life just that much worse. Mortal enemies “with benefits” was not exactly the plan.

  • Into The BlueAU. In which Louis is Harry’s scuba instructor and quite happy to provide the requested special treatment, pun fully intended.

Dolley Madison was so awesome!

 She was a Quaker and had two sons. Her husband and son died from a yellow fever epidemic and she was left a widow. Her neighbor Aaron Burr introduced Dolley to James Madison and the two of them became engaged but since Madison wasn’t a Quaker, she was expelled for marrying outside her faith. 

In 1814 the British invaded and burned down the White House.  Dolley Madison risked her own safety and refused to leave the estate until she had the painting of George Washington with her.

anonymous asked:

This may be a weird question, but what was Madison's relationship/thoughts on Washington?

The strongest argument for ratifying the constitution was the approval of George Washington, signaled by his presence at the convention and his support afterward. James Madison understood that Washington was the “heavy weight champion” (Brookhiser 7) of American public life, which is why he stuck to him from the planned stages of the convention through the early days of Washington’s presidency. 

The revolutionary war thrust Madison together with George Washington who was the commander in cheif for the continental army at the time. Washington was nineteen years Madison’s senior and at first he could only serve him from afar as an admirer. In 1778, the Governor’s council, noting “the great fatigues” to which Washington was exposed, decided to send him “a stock of good rum, wine [and] sugar.” Two years later, a congressional committee Madison sat on sent Washington a dozen boxes of lemons and two casks of wine. “As for our illustrious general,” Madison wrote, “the rich Madeira should flow in copious streams.” 

The two finally met in person in the winter of 1781-1782 (Brookhiser 31), when the commander in chief came to Philadelphia to plan the war’s end with congress. In Madison, Washington found “devotion, hard work and (in time) good advice. The younger man provided a gift which he revealed man years later in a discussion of Washington, “The story so often repeated of [Washington] never laughing,” Madison told, “is wholly untrue; no man seemed to enjoy gay conversation, through he took little part in it himself. He was particularly pleased with the jokes, good humor and hilarity of his companions.”

“Madison’s filial admiration for Washington was what almost any revolutionary, especially of his generation, would feel. But Madison would have more opportunities than most to serve his idol”

In November 1784, Washington went to Richmond to lobby the assembly for improvements to the Potomac. A bill was also introduced by Joseph Jones but after Jones left the legislature to take a seat on the Governor’s council, Madison took over management of a bill supported by Washington. Washington supplied the prestige and persuasion while Madison got the legislative work done. “Your own judgment in this business will be the best guide,” Washington acknowledged in a letter to his “partner”. As a result, the Potomac River Company was chartered in the spring of 1785, with Washington as president. 

Madison’s first visit to Mount Vernon followed in the fall (Brookhiser 45). After he left, Washington extended an open-ended invitation to further collaboration: “if anything should occur that is interesting, and you leisure will permit it, I should be glad to hear from you on the subject.” He sighed his letters with “affectionately. At Madison’s urging the assembly had given Washington fifty shares in the Potomac River Comany, valued at more than $22,000. Madison drafted a letter for him, asking the assembly to give the profits of his shares to charity. This would not be the last time Madison would be the General’s “ghost-writer”.

As one of Virginia’s representatives in Annapolis, Madison had called for a convention in Philadelphia. As a member of Virginia Assembly in Richmond, he wrote a bill to approve the recommendation he had made. With Madison’s input, the assembly picked a slate for Philadelphia that included Edmund Randolph, Patrick Henry, George Mason, Madison himself and George Washington headed this list. Henry refused and Washington did not want to go either. Madison spent all that winter and spring “wooing” him. When he wrote Washington in December 1786 to tell him that he was on the list of delegates, he underplayed his own role in putting Washington on there. “It was the opinion of every judicious friend whom I consulted that you name could not be spared… In these sentiments, I own I fully concurred.” On his way back on congress in December 1787, he stopped at Mount Vernon to speak with Washington. Madison would also provide Washington with updates as to what exactly was occurring in the congress chamber. 

George Washington took the oath of office in New York City on April 30th, 1789. Madison left no description of the day but he had stopped at Mount Vernon on his way back to New York in late February to help Washington write his inaugeral address. Madison wrote a more wieldy version, in six paragraphs. After Washington got the speech in the Federal Hall, Madison wrote the House’s response and Washington’s answer to the House’s response.

Whenever Washington’s abilities were questioned in the House, Madison came to the defense of him. When Washington asked Thomas Jefferson to be Secretary of State and he refused the first time, Madison was to play “matchmaker” and floated the offer back to Jefferson who finally agreed in February 1790. Despite James Madison’s disapproval with Bank Bill in February 1791, Washington had not yet during his presidency exercised his veto power. Washington talked the Bank Bill over with Madison, “listening favorably as I thought to my views,” and asked Madison to prepared a veto message. 

1792, Madison’s new political party named itself the Democratic-Republicans, but Madison’s most urgent task went far beyond politics: it was to persuade George Washington to stay in office for a second term as President of the United States. In the Spring the Commander-in-Chief asked his advisor how to let the country know that he would retire at the end of his term. Madison offered his opinions on the proper time for such an announcement (mid-September) and the proper manner (an article in the newspapers), and drafted an eight-paragraph Farewell Address. But he included a plea, “Having thus, Sir, complied with your wishes…I must now gratify my own by hoping [that you will make] one more sacrifice, severe as it may be, to the desires and interests of your country.”

Washington seemed above this. Madison “cherished Washington and his own closeness to him, could not acknowledge how much closer Washington had become with his former staff [Alexander Hamilton],” (Brookhiser 110). Washington subsequently decided to stay on at the urging of others such as Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. By 1793, Madison’s secret endorsement was for Philip Freneau. Freneau was a Princeton friend from their college days who published a newspaper openly attacking Washington and others of the rising Federalist party and sentiment. Jefferson and Madison distributed the papers. 

With the Whiskey Rebellion underway, Washington called up the militia of 15,000 led by Alexander Hamilton. This passed without protest from Madison but aspects of the affair worried his nevertheless: “a standing army was necessary for enforcing laws.” Madison worried less about the attack on western Pennsylvania than an attack on public opinion by George Washington. Washington believed that the crisis had been stirred up by the Democratic Societies. Edmund Randolph wrote to Washington that a Democratic Society in South Carolina had named itself “Madisonian.” This, Washington had not liked at all. He was attempting to uphold the law, while Madison was “consorting with its enemies.” (Brookhiser 120). Washington and Madison had disagreed on many things over the past four years, but now Washington began to suspect that his old friend was growing against him. 

In 1794, Aaron Burr introduced the bachelor Madison to Dolley Payne Todd whom he soon married. This courtship was encouraged by George and Martha Washington (Brookhiser 121). By April 1796, Madison began to take on Washington directly and his unhappiness showed. Despite their recent political disputes, he and Washington and still maintained somewhat of a friendship. He had supplied with his Madeira, helped with him canals and constitution-making; Washington had even blessed his marriage. Madison reminded the president that he was not a “king”, that the government had not “hereditary prerogatives and reminded him of the power of public opinion. Yet Madison admitted Washington’s “high authority” and insisted that he himself used only “decent terms” to refute it. Madison divided mind weakened his argument.  Washington found it easy to reject the younger man’s opposition. He ended the relationship. Though Madison would attend a few state dinners at the presidential mansion, he and Washington exchanged no more letters, paid no more visits. Madison’s own side was unhappy with him too. They blamed him for not fighting Washington “enough”. 

In his Farewell Address, Washington followed the advice Madison had given to him four years earlier about how to “set the stage.” George Washington died on December 14th and Madison moved that the assembly wear mourning throughout their session. “Death,” he said, “has robbed our country of its most distinguished ornament, and the world of one of its greatest benefactors.” Madison had never fully accepted the estrangement to Washington and stayed rather loyal till the end. In 1818, many years later when establishing the University of Virginia, one of the texts Madison added to library was Washington’s first inaugural and his Farewell Address. 

Soulmates Fics Rec

AKA it’s Wednesday, you’ve made it halfway through the week so here’s some fics you can treat yourself with:

it’s you i find like a ghost in my mind by magneticwave:

Summary: In a serious, like, fit of cosmic irony, the name on the inside of Louis’ wrist is HARRY.

Hiding Place by alivingfire:

Summary: Louis never wanted a soulmate, didn’t really care for the whole Bonding thing at all, really. Enter Harry Styles, who’s wanted to be Bonded for as long as he could remember. With one fateful meeting in an X Factor bathroom, Louis gets a dagger on his arm and the realization that just because Harry is his soulmate doesn’t mean it’s mutual.

From the X Factor house to Madison Square Garden, from the Fountain Studios stage to stadiums across the world, Louis has to learn to love without losing himself completely, because someday his best friend will Bond to someone and replace Louis as the center of his universe. Meanwhile, Harry begins to think that maybe fate doesn’t actually know what it’s doing after all, because his other half has clearly been right in front of him the whole time. All he has to do now is convince Louis to give them a chance.

Or, the canon compliant Harry and Louis love story from the very beginning, where the only difference is that the love between them is literally written on their skin, and there’s only so much they can hide.

take my hand (and lead me home) by tumsa:

Summary: AU in which every time a person falls in love with their soulmate, a red line, like a tally mark, appears on their wrists. When their love is requited, the tally mark turns black, and turns into a scar when the one they love dies. Harry with no tally marks falls for Louis with all of his tally marks scarred.

Pour Your Heart Out by hrrytomlinson:

Summary: Louis is his soulmate. Or at least Harry thinks he is. Louis feels the same as Louis. But there are a lot of people named Louis in the world and this Louis might not be the Louis. It’s besides the point though, because Harry knows he can’t allow himself to get close to any boys. He just can’t and he’s told himself this multiple times. He has to simply stay away from Louis Tomlinson. But he can’t. Harry Styles can never stay away from Louis Tomlinson. It’s physically impossible for him to.

You and The Moon and Neptune (Got it Right) by alienharry:

Summary: Of all the different ways Louis had pictured meeting his soulmate, he never imagined he’d come second to his little sister. He assumed he’d have met his own soulmate by now, that he’d already be married and sickeningly in love, guiding his kid sister through these new and confusing feelings. He wanted one hand on his soulmate’s waist and the other on Lottie’s back as he told her that everything was okay and she wasn’t moving too fast.

Of all the ways Harry saw his life going, being a 23-year-old sales associate at Harrods and hating every minute of it was not what he envisioned for himself. If he’s being honest, he saw himself in Peru or China or - hell - even fucking Denver, just traveling. He wants to see the world, not oversee the women’s department 36 hours a week.

Louis has always wanted to meet his soulmate; he’s built his life around the plan that one day his soulmate would come along, and they could begin their happily ever after.

Harry has always wanted to travel; he’s built his life around the idea that nothing is permanent, and seeing the world is his only objective - soulmates mean nothing to him after all.

Oh How I Hate This Red String Of Fate by CalamityK:

Summary: Harry thought being able to see people’s strings die would be the worst thing about his gift, until at twenty-two he finally met the other end of his own.
———
Or that soulmate AU where Harry can see the red strings of fate that tie everyone together.

breathing in your dust by togetherwecouldbealright:

Summary: “Must be fate,” Harry jokes, rolling his eyes and Louis’ face softens as he nods in agreement.

“Well Harry, we are soulmates after all,” Louis reminds as if he thinks Harry might’ve forgotten, even as his hand is still stuck to the wall.

AU where Harry doesn’t believe in soulmates despite living in a world where soulmates and fate are key words. Louis is just a boy he meets but at the same time, he’s so much more.

Perfect by happilylarry:

Summary: Soulmates had only been in the history books for the past few hundred years, so people were still trying to get the hang of it. From what he’s read, back then, if you met your soulmate, that was that. You either chose to be with them and be happy, or be with the one you truly loved and suffer.

Sort of poetic, you know, if he believed in that shit.

Y/N’s P.O.V

Shakily I reached into my pocket to grab my phone, “Pick up.” I whispered, I hung up immediately as it stopped ringing and played my brothers voicemail message. He’s always with his girlfriend Madison, don’t get me wrong, she’s amazing we’re actually pretty close but he’s always with her. It feels like he’s been neglecting me, not to sound selfish. We were so close but now we just keep drifting further and further apart. I shook myself out of my thoughts as I realized how exhausted I am, I managed to walk up the stairs even though my tears were still blurring my vision.

I get a lot of hate, still. Sometimes the good out weighs the bad, but recently a picture of me and Sammy being particularly cozy with each other got out and now everyone hates me. He’s like a brother to me, no one gets that I don’t think of the boys as anything but brothers. The bathroom door swung open as I turned the knob, I almost fell as I leaned my weight on it. I want to sleep, but right now I won’t be able to calm down. I opened the medicine cabinet searching for my sleeping pills. Grabbing the bottle I realized I didn’t have anything to drink.

I let out another frustrated cry as I had to walk all the way downstairs. I did so, still as emotional as before, honestly only wanting my brother to comfort me, but that’s not going to happen because he won’t answer his phone. I sniffled as I grabbed a water from the fridge. My hands slightly shaking, I opened the water managing to not spill anything.

The pill bottle was another story. I turned the lid off before it slipped from my hands, pills scattering across the floor. I heard the front door opening from just around the corner, who ever was coming in will immediately see me and the pills on the floor. I rushed around trying to grab the pills, failing miserably as I heard a worried voice call out. “Y/N?” I heard Johnson mumble shocked. I looked at him as my tears started flowing even faster, I couldn’t say anything.

He practically dropped to the floor and got in front of me, “Did you take anything?” He asked making me shake my head, I thought about it, I thought about how easy it would’ve been to just take a few extra, but I couldn’t. He let out a breath of relief before moving to be next to me. He gently wrapped his arms around me, pulling me over so I was practically sitting on him. I hugged him back, silently thanking him for not asking anything yet.

“Y/N,” he started off gently pushing me back to look at my face. “What happened?” He asked rubbing my back slowly, knowing I didn’t care who did it but that it calmed me down tremendously. I took a deep breath, my breathing still slightly wavering. “Hate.” I started off, he nodded encouraging me to go on, “Jack.” I added on, he knitted his brows together in confusion. “What did he do?” He asked sounding kind of protective which made me manage to smile even though my face was still very wet with tears.

“He’s never home anymore, it’s either studio, friends or Madison. He doesn’t even know about the picture of me and Sammy, the reason why I’m getting so much hate.” I paused to breathe, “He doesn’t even care anymore.” I cried out softly. Johnson pulled me into him again, allowing me to cry into his shirt. Not caring about me getting it wet. “He does care. Don’t say that. He’ll always care you know that, but you also know that he doesn’t realize what he’s doing.” He told me making me shake my head.

“J, I called him when I got home and it almost immediately went to voicemail. He ignored my call, he’s with Madison at her house, I saw pictures of it already.” I responded annoyed. “I’m sorry, you have to tell him what he’s doing to you though.” He said, I sighed before both of our heads snapped up at the sound of my brothers voice. “Who’s doing what to you?” Jack asked before seeing us on the floor, me almost fully on Johnson’s lap, my face red and tear stained from crying.

“Y/N, what happened?” He asked immediately as he took in my appearance, followed by seeing the pills that still haven’t been picked up. His eyes widened before me and Johnson both started assuring him that I didn’t take any. “Can you give us a minute?” I whispered to Johnson as I moved off of him, he nodded pushing himself up off the ground. He gave Jack a reassuring look before walking out. I didn’t move as he slid down the front of the fridge to sit next to me on the floor.
I shrugged his arm off as he tried to put it around my shoulders, sadness flashed across his face.

“Who did this to you?” He asked still not putting two and two together, I shook my head softly, “You, your fans…” I trailed off. I hate making him feel guilty but you know what, I’ve put up with this for long enough. “Me?” He asked shocked and disappointed at the same time. “I needed you, Jack. I need you, right now.” I started off turning slightly to look at him, “That picture of me and Sammy has made so much drama, I get nothing but hate everyday because of it. But you wouldn’t know that, you’re always out. Sometimes I don’t even feel like your sister anymore.” I said my voice cracking.

He shook his head pulling me over to him, I sniffled as he did what I wished he had been here to do earlier. He stayed silent for a minute. “I’m such a bad brother, I know. I’m sorry, I’m never spending time with you.” He sighed rubbing my back, I let out a breath as I pulled back, “You’re not a bad brother, you just get to caught up in everything, you know?” I replied, “Just learn to say no once in a while, you don’t always have to hang out with everyone, I know it makes you tired.” I added on, he nodded letting his eyes shut for a minute.

“I’m really sorry though, I should’ve answered when you called, I should’ve been here for you.” He said his eyes glancing over to the scattered pills. I nudged his shoulder making him look back at me. “Don’t worry about those, I promise I was just gonna take one so I could calm down and fall asleep.” I assured him, he nodded slowly, “Okay.” He returned my small smile.

“I love you.” I sighed hugging him once again. “I love you too.” He replied squeezing me a little tighter.

Nick Clark x Reader- Mine

Requested by Anon

Set during Season One

————-

It had been a rough seven years, forced to live on the streets since your teenage years and reducing yourself down to nothing when you started smoking. Granted, it wasn’t the hard stuff, but your smoking habit was how you met Nick Clark. And here you were, years later, still dating when most couples would’ve been married at that point. 

He wasn’t the devilish prince charming your parents would’ve wanted for you, but you loved him more because of it. He was sweet, always looking out for you when you got in with the wrong people, and had claimed multiple times he’d die for you. 

When the world ended, you found yourself at Nicks childhood home, after a rather bad quarrel about his time with Gloria, who turned into a walker. Or what other people liked to call, rotters, skin eaters, lame brains… Blah blah blah. You had been infuriated Nick had turned to her, but it was all for the drugs. That was all he cared about anymore.

Alicia gently knocked on your door, feigning a smile as you sat up in the bed. “Are you and my brother having relationship drama?” She mused. “He’s a mess, Y/N. I know Nick, and I know his heart. If he cheated on you, it wasn’t intentional. You are one of the reasons he’s still living and I can’t thank you enough for it.” 

Your heart felt like it was dying, like you had been living for thousands of years and was just beginning to die. “I love your brother, however stupid he may be, I still love him. I just don’t want to get hurt again.” 

  “He made a vow to my mom and Travis that he was done with drugs, for you. I’d say that’s a pretty solid promise.” 

Part of you wanted to go back to seven years ago, where you had been young and impressionable, and Nick was just his stupid self, with that smile you adored and those eyes that never stopped staring at you. 

Your covered feet padded along the carpet as you crept out of the bedroom and slid into Nicks, gently shutting the door behind you. It was just after ten, and he was already fast asleep spread out on his bed. A smile spread across your face as you climbed on top of him, lowering your lips to his. 

His eyes instantly shot open at the familiar body, the smell of jasmine that lingered on your skin as his hands weaved into your long y/h/c locks. “Y/N.” He breathed, gasping as he flipped you over so he was now on top of you. “I’m sorry, for everything-” 

You pressed a finger against his lips, pulling your hair into a bun which gave him full access to the bare skin that your teeshirt didn’t hide, dipping down to just beneath your collarbone. “Don’t talk.” A breathy gasp escaped your lips as his cold hand ran down your leg, his lips pressed against your jawline. “I love you.” 

  “I love you more, Juliet.” 

That next day, the military came back inside the Safe Zone for their daily run. You sat out on the lawn and watched as their armored trucks passed Madisons house, until one stopped and two men came right towards you. “I swear if you try to take me away, I can guarantee you that you won’t be having kids with any woman who’s still alive.” 

The man on the left with the name tag Carte stitched into his uniform smirked, outstretching a hand towards you. “Was that subtle flirting, Miss Y/L/N?” He questioned, lightly resting a hand on your hip. A shiver went down your spine as he traced circles on your skin, his thumb just inches away from the bottom of your crop top. “C’mon babe, there’s some abandoned houses down the street-” 

Nick chose that time to exit the house, dressed in his old man rags and snickering as you slapped the soldier across the face so hard that your hand left a print on his sunkissed skin. “You are disgusting and undeserving of that uniform.” You snarled. Before you could continue chewing out the soldier, Nick came up behind you and wrapped his arms around your waist. 

  “Hate to break it to you man,” His voice was calm as you turned in his embrace and hid your face in his shoulder. “But this girl right here? She’s mine.”
