RAIN BLOOD FROM THE SKIES, DEATH-FEATHERS

New Favorites!

I’ve been reading a lottt lately, so here are my new favorites from the last few months!

you got me faded- 8k. louis has been tasting wine for 2 hours when he meets harry at a winery. things go well, considering.

Pining For You- 9k. Harry sells Christmas trees. Louis doesn’t mean to buy so many of them.

Unbelievers- 137k. 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.Or: The one where Louis and Harry definitely aren’t friends, and football is everything.

the value of this moment lives in metaphor- 10k. The one where they’re all teachers at a high school and students are more invested in their lives than normally expected.

let’s savour what we’re falling over- 20k. west wing au (loosely); in other words everyone works in the white house and louis likes getting coffee with the washington post reporter in his briefing room.

That Sounds Fake But Okay- 46k. Harry Styles is a rookie journalist forced to work the gossip desk at a major New York magazine. Louis Tomlinson is the A-list actor who doesn’t appreciate Harry or his articles.

My English Love Affair- 19k. The one where Harry writes a song about his English love affair and Louis sleeps with someone in White Eskimo and all he gets is a stupid song written about him.

Panorama- 34k. Louis’ cabin crew at Panorama Airlines are in need of a new member. Cheeky Harry Styles joins the group, but to his mild disappointment Louis determinedly has no intention of joining the Mile High Club.Their first kiss might not be their first kiss.

Just For Me- 9k. Harry is a supermodel with a fake boyfriend. Louis is the captain and star forward of Manchester United with a fake girlfriend. They should have no problem having a completely platonic lunch between friends.(They do.)

to be a muse may be enough- 6k. When Zayn came to him with a job, Louis never expected to be sat in a studio, wearing lipstick and reading a book about Death whilst being plugged with a vibrator. Did he also mention he’s being filmed by the fittest photographer he’s ever seen?a.k.a the hysterical literature AU i can’t believe hasn’t been written yet

anything you ask and more- 19k. louis knows that he’s in love the second harry begins speaking about the bolsheviks. (or, louis is a history teacher & harry is the fit curator that he desperately wants to mongol invade him, however many times niall tells him he’s a psychopath.)

Cupid’s Chokehold- 35k. Louis is a Cupid who tries to match up Niall and Harry. It doesn’t work out as planned.

So Darling, Just Say You’ll Stay Right by My Side- 28k. AU where Louis is the chief of police in a small sea-side town and Harry is his new deputy who’s a bit of a pacifist and a lot wonderful.

This was waaay longer than I planned… There’s a healthy mix of long and short fics, and smut and fluff, so I hope everybody can find something new and enjoyable! Happy holidays :)

United Games of Old Masterlist

Having only started following football after the last World Cup (and seeing as I’m suffering at the moment with no league football to watch for another couple of months) I asked recently for your favorite United games of old. The responses I received were amazing, and now that I am not slammed with work tonight I wanted to put everything together in one place, as a reference post of sorts. While I initially had a pre 2008 period in mind given the replies it now goes until 202-13, the last season before I started watching we were any good in. Thank you to everyone who reblogged and sent asks and helped me construct a wonderful summer survival guide – you guys rock! :)

  • 1992-1993, Manchester United v. Sheffield Wednesday, or Gary’s favorite
  • 1999 FA Cup Final, Manchester United v. Newcastle, or the one with Giggsy
  • 2001-2002, Tottenham Hotspur v. Manchester United, or who doesn’t love a good comeback?
  • 2003-2004, Manchester United v. Arsenal, or what do you mean we have a game nicknamed the Battle of Old Trafford??? What happened omg???
  • 2006-2007, Manchester United v. Manchester City, or the one thing that’s better than winning the Manchester derby is winning the Manchester derby AND winning the league
  • 2006-2007, Manchester United v. AS Roma, or you had me at the Carrick brace
  • 2008-2009, Manchester United v. Tottenham Hotspur, or who doesn’t love ALL!! THE!! GOOD!! COMEBACKS?
  • 2008-2009 UCL, Arsenal v. Manchester United, or I’m getting the vibe that you guys really don’t like Arsenal
  • 2010-2011, Manchester United v. Chelsea, or who doesn’t love a last minute win especially when it’s Chicharito who seals the deal
  • 2010-2011, Chelsea v. Manchester United, or everyone can score a goal but can you do it with your face?
  • 2010-2011, Manchester United v. Manchester City, or the one with the overhead kick
  • 2011-2012, Manchester United v. Arsenal, or Arsenal fans look away now
  • 2011-2012, Chelsea v. Manchester United, or a draw isn’t always a bad thing (I can’t believe I just typed those words)
  • 2012-2013, Manchester United v. Real Madrid, or there is sometimes honor in defeat (OR or I can already see myself protesting that red card decision, come on ref take mine if you need glasses!! #team double standards)

If your favorite United game of old isn’t here drop a line and I’ll update the list with it. (I left out the two UCL finals on purpose by the way because of course those are must see!)
