Listen. Sometimes you just have to get through a day. Sometimes… sometimes things that should be easy are hard, and things that might be hard are impossible. Sometimes there are days when all you want to do is listen to songs that hurt your heart, and talk to people who might hurt it even worse.” Harry’s lip is wobbling again. Louis pushes on, his own voice going throaty. “Sometimes you feel too old and too young at the same time, and there are decisions that need to be made and you think should’ve already been made but you don’t feel qualified to make them. And you know what? Sometimes you feel like the world’s going to crush you, but it never will. The fall never comes. And you’ll be okay.
For Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite Captain Swan fics of all time from Fanfiction.net and AO3. I’ve read them all at least twice and they are just as good the second (or sometimes tenth) time around. It was so hard to make this list because I got caught up in re-reading some of them!
Nearly all of these are modern AUs because that is my kryptonite. GO READ THEM PLEASE. THEY’RE ALL WONDERFUL. (There are a few authors I couldn’t find on tumblr, so if you know their handle, let me know and I’ll fix it.)
Thank you so much, fanfiction authors!! I appreciate you!
