Hey so this is my first fic rec, and since I read a lot of nice, feel good fics that make you smile, I’ve decided to create a list for everyone else ! As always, before you read, remember to CHECK THE TAGS. I’ve tried my best to put only good stuff on here, but you know yourself better than I do, and I want you to stay safe ! Anyway, If you feel like I’ve missed a good one, let me know and I can add it on ! Happy Reading !
*also, most descriptions are taken right from the fic ! I take no credit.
Saved Tonight (30k) - Harry is the world’s most persistent seduction-baker, a questionable dog-sitter, and Louis’s biggest fan. Louis hasn’t written in years, is trying to pass loneliness off as cynicism, and absolutely hates his fans. It’s probably destiny.
Good ending, louis is a bit of an asshole at the beginning, but he gets better very quick!
The Twenty Four Hour Cafe (3k) - “You might want to slow down a bit,” Louis says. The boy looks up at him with wide eyes. Like, really wide eyes. Like, maybe he needs to blink more.“How many have I had?” the boy asks. His voice is deep and ridiculously slow, even as his eyes are the size of the moon and his hands are shaking as he pours the creamer in with barely a glance at it.
Cute and Short! Good for falling asleep to!
All the Small things (20k) - Louis stares. “You’re five inches tall.” He says finally. “I am about that.” The tiny man agrees.“You’ve been making strange noises and scaring the shit out of me.”“I’m sorry.” The tiny man winces.“You’ve been breaking my things.”“Not on purpose.”That voice is disconcertingly deep, and Louis keeps wanting to look up and find the fully grown person that it must surely be coming from. He takes a deep breath and moves onto the next impossible point.“You’ve been riding my rabbit.” He says. — AU// Harry is five inches tall and can’t remember how he got that way, but maybe with Louis’ help they can work it out.
okay, I really like cute supernatural / mythical creature AUs, and this one is very cute and funny!
Cute stupid boys who pine for awhile in a record shop.
My Song Has Not Been Sung (2k) - The boy looks completely in his element, wrapped in a rainbow flag with pink paint smeared across his face. He’s jumping and twirling through the street, tossing handfuls of glitter on bystanders, screaming his heart out and clearly loving every second of it. He’s everything Harry was hoping to capture on film.
Or, Harry is watching a protest from the sidelines until a boy with a rainbow flag and a pretty smile drags him right into the middle of it.
came out right after the women’s march! I really like how louis was written in this!
Is This Seat Taken? (35.5k) - A borrowed suit from Zayn, a cigarette and the right attitude, and Louis went from security breach to misplaced celebrity instantly. He could practically see the wheels in the security guy’s head switch from ‘could be dangerous’ to ‘could get me fired’.
L.A was so predictable.Louis makes a bet with Zayn that he can sneak into a music awards event without getting caught, and when he ends up posing as a seat-filling member of staff he runs into superstar Harry Styles and sparks fly. Que the music.
I read this one awhile ago but i remember that it always kept me laughing!
Higher Than Before (8k) - louis and harry go to the same college, and they hate each other until they sit together on a plane trip abroad.
Hate to lovers AU, but I’m putting it in for the ending!
Torn On The Platform (27k) - 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.
10/10 I love this one a lot, really cute, lots of pining.
Superman can fly, shoot lasers from his eyes, has ice breath, and once destroyed an entire galaxy by sneezing (Google it, it happened) but the second Godzilla or literally anything large takes one step on land suddenly every nerd pulls that fucking square cubed law out from their asses and complains that it’s “unrealistic” and “makes the story unbelievable”.
Fuck you, science fiction was built on unbelievable shit, that’s what the word “fiction” means you morons.
me to myself: work on reaching out more when you’re not feeling your best. its not healthy to just internalize your problems. if you’re feeling uncomfortable or angry or hurt about something, go and find someone to talk to
me, a day later when im sobbing, downing alcohol and deleting all my phone contacts:
ok i’m feeling really fuckin emo and i’m going to start gushing right now but like i don’t know if you guys realise how much it means to me when you say you like my writing??? if i ever tell you that you made me cry with your nice comments i am literally telling the truth like right now there are literal tears running down my face from that last ask i got
i just ??? will never get over it ??? i write because i love it and when other people love it too it mAKES ME FEEL SO SPECIAL I DO NOT FEEL LIKE I DESERVE IT OH GOD i can’t even express how surreal it is to me
i just wanted to let you all know that if you’ve ever even slightly liked my writing like you read it and thought “this is ok” I!!! LOVE!!! YOU!!! i never feel like what i do is good enough but this genuinely helps boost my confidence by at least 1000000% and i will never be able to thank you enough
They're all Earthlike! They might have liquid water and life!
But they're probably all spread out all over.
Nope! Seven Earthlike planets, all orbiting the same star.
Okay, sure, but that star's probably halfway across the universe.
Only 40 light years! We could send and receive communications in a human lifetime!
Wow, that is kind of cool. Let's start communicating! Let's send a probe! Hell, I'll volunteer to get on the generation ship if it means leaving this nightmare hellscape.
We'll start figuring out the message.
This almost sounds too good to be true! By the way, what star did you say they orbit?
The improbably large set of Earthlike planets orbiting a single star at such a distance that they might all be capable of harboring life, close enough to Earth that we could maybe send messages or visit, orbits a star named "Trappist-1."
That's right! I'm gonna start beaming out the message.
