i should be doing homework but all I want to do is sleep

Best Friends.

Hey guys, it’s twenty minutes to midnight and I should be doing homework, but tbh, I can’t be bothered. I was wondering, which point of view style do you guys prefer? I tend to switch it up depending on how I want to write the story, but I want to see what you guys like best. Also, I’ve read some stuff of people not like Y/N so would you prefer for me to use an actual name, or to just use Y/N? Thanks so much for all of the support that you guys have given me. The last time I checked You’ve Changed [Part 2] it had 89 notes which is amazing! I’ve never really liked my writing, but so many of you guys seem to love. Requests are still open and yes, I will be writing them… soon. I love you guys, xx.

Justin ran into his best friend’s room who laid sleeping under her covers, sniffling softly. “Wake up!” He yelled.

Y/N woke up with a start, groaning as her gaze fixated on Justin who was eagerly jumping up and down. Rolling her eyes, she hid her face in her pillow as Justin laughed, laying down next to her.

“How are you feeling?” He asked, wrapping his arm around her and pulling her to his chest.

Y/N felt a little flutter go off in her chest at Justin’s arm being around her, the scent of his cologne intoxicating her. She opened her eyes and looked up at Justin.

Shrugging, she said, “I’m feeling a bit better. I’ve haven’t thrown up today so that’s a plus.”

Justin chuckled and slid off the bed, and she already longed for the warmth that he provided. He grabbed the bag that he brought with him and carefully took out the soup.

“My mom made it when I told her you were sick.” Justin smiled a cheeky smile and grabbed Chinese takeout from the bag, aswell. “And this is for me.”

“Not fair.” Y/N playfully huffed and sat up, taking the soup into her hands, “thanks, Jay.”

Justin climbed onto the bed with his food and sat next to her, pulling the covers over himself as he got comfortable. “I have to tell you something.”

She looked over at him, nodding her head as she took a spoonful of the soup into her mouth.

“So,” Justin sighed and raked his fingers through his hair. “Lilah and I have been talking again.”

Lilah. Y/N nearly choked at the sound of the girl’s name who broke Justin’s heart. He had fallen for her so quickly, but Y/N couldn’t blame him, Lilah was beautiful, smart, and kind. When Lilah came, Y/N began to get pushed away. She felt her feelings being crushed every day as Justin turned her down because he already had plans with Lilah. He still made time for Y/N, but it always seemed force and eventually, Y/N just stopped asking to hang out. After a year and four months of dating, Justin had asked Lilah to marry him. She agreed, but four days before the wedding, she left and claimed that Justin was moving too quickly. Lilah left Justin with a broken heart and it had taken Y/N a long time to mend it back into shape.

“I see,” Y/N shoved another spoonful of soup into her mouth so that she didn’t have to say any more because when it came to Lilah, anything she said was wrong.

“Yeah, and she’s so different, Y/N. But she’s still my Lilah.” My Lilah. “I’ve never loved anyone like I have loved her.” Ouch. “We’re meeting up again… to talk.”

Y/N stared at her soup, moving the spoon around in the liquid. “You’re setting yourself up for heartbreak, Justin.”

“You’re just saying that,” he huffed and shook his head. “I know what I’m getting myself into. Lilah is different now, we were young and naive. I don’t blame her for leaving, but this time it’s going to be different.”

“You say that, but is it really Justin? You cried day and night for three months. THREE. Not one week, not two, but three months.” Y/N sighed as Justin abruptly stood up.

“Don’t,” Justin shook his head and grabbed his car keys from his pocket. “Just, don’t.”

Y/N dropped her head as Justin walked out of her room, leaving her with a loss of appetite and a broken heart.

Y/N watched Justin leave the house on the night of the date. He had panicked, calling her and begging her to come help him get dressed. She couldn’t turn him down and found herself rushing to his aid, just like she always did. Justin had picked out several outfits and had laid them out on his bed, but even those, he didn’t like. He huffed and puffed and she managed to get him out of the door looking impressionable. Not that he needed an outfit to make him look impressionable, Justin was perfect in every way.

She plopped on the couch, exhausted from forcing smiles and laughter the entire time she helped Justin. They talked about their argument and hugged it out. Y/N couldn’t help the butterflies that erupted in her stomach at Justin’s simple touch. She looked over as Ryan, Justin’s roommate and long friend of the both them, walk in. He dropped his keys on the table and jumped when he saw Y/N.

“You’re too good to him.” Ryan laughed, catching on to why one of his best friends was here.

Y/N played with her hair and shrugged, “I know.”

“You have to tell him you know, or you’re going to regret it.” Ryan sat down next to her and put his feet up on the coffee table.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Y/N couldn’t help the blush that crept up her cheeks as she said that. She knew damn well what he was talking about.

“You can’t live your entire life loving someone, Y/N.” Ryan told her and stood up, “he has the right to know.”

-

Y/N went home after Justin didn’t come back at the time he said he would She was already having deja vu from when Justin and Lilah first dated, the misinterpretation of time and how she never could predict if Justin would be early or late. She couldn’t sleep, tossing and turning at Ryan’s words. She had decided that she would go and tell Justin today. She wanted to make sure that Justin didn’t reciprocate any feelings for her before Justin and Lilah got too serious… again.

She woke up confident, yet scared at the same time. Only Justin could make her feel this way. She pulled up into Justin’s house at around 11 p.m. and immediately, she wanted to turn around and go home. Y/N forced herself out of the car and went up to the door, knocking ever so gently. 

Justin opened the door after a minute or two, looking groggy and disoriented. He was only wearing boxers and Y/N couldn’t help but smile at the fact she was telling her best friend that she had feelings for him.. in his underwear. 

“Hey, can I come in?” She asked, swaying back and forth.

“Actually-”

“Justin, where did you go?” She heard the ever so familiar voice say and Justin’s head quickly snapped around to look over at Lilah.

“Over here, babe!” He yelled.

Y/N squinted her eyes as she looked at Justin, “babe? What happened to taking things slow?”

“It’s complicated, but things went really well last night.” He said and Lilah came into view.

She wore one of Justin’s shirt and it just so happened to be a shirt that Y/N had gotten him for his birthday. It had sentimental value because it’s when she surprised him with tickets to see their favorite band. Meanwhile, Justin ditched the concert to go to Hawaii with Lilah. He gave her the tickets back with an apology and Y/N sold them on ebay, crying the rest of the night with a bottle of whiskey in her hand.

“Y/N, wow. It’s so nice to see you.” She greeted. How long has it been?”

“Three years.” She replied, forcing a tight-lip smile at her, “nice to see you again.”

“It’s nice to see you too,” she warmly replied and Y/N hoped that Justin or Lilah were picking up on her hostile attitude. “I’m going to go get something to eat, baby.”

Justin nodded and watch her walk away before turning his attention on Y/N. “So, why did you come?”

Y/N looked at Justin and thought of Ryan’s words. “I was just coming to see how the date went. I’m glad it went well.”

“We’ll talk later, okay?” Justin tried to look into Y/N eyes, but her gaze was fixated elsewhere. 

Y/N nodded and turned on her heel, wondering how she could have ever thought that if she told Justin she loved him, that he’d feel the same way. Boy was she wrong.

I mentioned Pride and Prejudice fanfiction, and that made me go back through my old fanfiction.net account and check out my old favorites, and that made me want to make a rec post, so here we are. All of these are complete, because I wouldn’t do you wrong like that ;) 

Lo’s Pride and Prejudice Fanfiction Rec Masterpost

In no particular order, *** = favorites

***A Searing Acquaintance - THE FAVORITE OF ALL FAVORITES. This one absolutely deserves to be first on the list. IT. IS. INCREDIBLE.

Lizzy Bennet and the Pompous Prat - P&P Hogwarts au!!! Pretty good. Rated T - 108,000 words

Symposium - Modern coffee shop au of sorts. Darcy works in publishing. It’s worth a read. Could have used more making out though, if I’m being honest. Rated T - 69,000 words

Obsidian - P&P beauty and the beast au!!! It’s been a long time since I read it, but I remember it being good. Rated T - 62,000 words

It Only Stands to Reason - Regency era au where Mr. Bennet was in the navy, so Lizzy and Jane have different upbringings from most ladies. But they move to Derbyshire, and well, feelings ensue. Rated T - 100,000 words

***A Rush of Blackbirds - A Regency era au that will give you massive feels. Seriously, so many feels. Just read it it’s good. Rated T - 77,000 words

***When He Comes Back - P&P World War II au short fic!!! Darcy and Elizabeth meet because of Jane and Bingley, spend the summer arguing, and then Darcy expresses his feelings right before they leave for the war. Lizzy figures herself out while he’s gone and hopes he doesn’t die before he can come back. It’s g o r g e o u s. Rated T - 15,000 words. 

***Closer - Don’t even talk to me about this fic, I could live in this universe forever. Modern au where Elizabeth is the principal ballerina for a company in New York, Darcy is a doctor, her leg gets injured in a snow storm and he does his best to fix it, but it destroys her ballet career. Seriously beautiful, amazing, wonderful. Did I mention Darcy is british? So you can imagine him with a hot accent. Rated T - 137,000 words, also has a companion piece called The Space Between with some deleted scenes. 

Marry in Haste Version 1 - Regency era au where Elizabeth was in an abusive marriage with a wealthy earl before she met Darcy. Her husband is dead now but she has trust issues, obvi. Really great fic. Rated T - 56,000 words

Marry in Haste Version 2 - The author wrote a second version of the same fic!! This one is built on the same premise as the first, except that Elizabeth’s husband is still alive, so she’s trapped in a terrible marriage when she meets Darcy. Our wonderful hero figures out the situation when he sees bruises on Elizabeth, and offers sanctuary for her in his home. This one is a lot more action-packed than the first, complete with duels and everything. I recommend both!! (This one also deserves a trigger warning for rape/abuse, but the author does a super good job of letting you know when those scenes are going to happen so you can avoid them if you like.) Rated M - 98,000 words

***Shine - The first full-length P&P fic I ever read! Modern au where Elizabeth meets Darcy the summer before she starts college, they have abrasive feelings that result in tension, and she doesn’t realize he goes to her university until she shows up on her first day. Turns out he’s a super hot lacrosse player, and he’s way different than who she thought he was. Seriously great fic with some nice making out and discussions of Darcy’s abs. Rated T - 110,000 words.
