i trust you. im new to 1D fan fic, i've read a few of the most recent recs you've posted. but i wanted to know. what are the must read, staple fics? like ones that everyone has read and shit. thank you ily.

Okay, here we go. 

1D fan fic 101 (featuring 40+ must-read fics)

  1. These Inconvenient Fireworks (TIF) - Holy Bible of 1D fanfiction (“Future AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.”)
  2. Fading - TW: eating disorders, absolutely heartbreaking but one of the most wonderful things you’ll ever read (“Louis knows about beauty; the combination of qualities that pleases the aesthetic senses. He creates that combination every day in the garments he designs while studying fashion at uni. The cut of the design, the color of the fabric, the intricacy of the stitching; it all comes together to create something beautiful. When the science student with the long legs and dimpled smile agrees to model for him, Louis decides he’s found beauty personified. Harry just thinks Louis needs someone to show him how beautiful he is”)
  3. Zarah5 - Fandom’s most wonderful and prolific writer, just read everything she’s written (my absolute favourite is Into The Blue)
  4. You Came Beating Like Moth’s Wings - also check everything else by supernope (“Harry smiles. He’s only known Louis for about two hours, knows nothing about him past his first name, but he’s nice and sarcastic and helpful and so, so pretty. And Harry’s still got a few days left in Barcelona, and he thinks he wouldn’t mind spending them with Louis.Also known as, Harry takes the summer before uni to travel Europe and meets Louis in Barcelona, and they end up traveling together.”)
  5. Jump Before We Fall - I absolutely loved this, read it a couple of times, such a great story; also check everything else by green_feelings (Louis and Zayn’s lives revolve around running a hotel by the sea, Harry is a student who wants a life far from home for just a little while, Niall doesn’t know where life leads him and Liam thinks he has already found all purposes in his life.)
  6. Red Brick Heart - so good, the college life au with so much cheeky louis and adorable harry, plus loads of cuddling and great group dynamic; also check everything else by hazmesentir (“Harry has only had his room for thirty-two minutes when it stops being his.Uni AU. Harry had turned up at the halls of residence expecting fun, new friends, and maybe a life experience or two. What he doesn’t expect is a surprise roommate who’s loud and dramatic and obsessed with tea and is maybe, actually, all he’s ever wanted.”)
  7. And Then A Bit - also check everything else by infinitelymint (“We’d like to give the fans what they want.” Magee states, placing his hand on the table in front of him and leaning forward. “We want to give them Larry Stylinson.(aka Harry and Louis fake a relationship for publicity. Eventually it becomes a lot less fake and a lot more real.))
  8. The Finish Line (Is A Good Place For Us To Start) / You’ll Breathe Me in (You Won’t Release) - couldn’t decide which one is better, both are so so so good; also check everything else by LoadedGunn (first one is the formula au, second one is the driving instructor fic)
  9. In From The Cold - this is one of the fics you will never forget, I promise (“Louis is a hurricane who won’t stand still, but Harry thinks maybe Ireland has this way of changing priorities. A B&B au in which Harry and Zayn run an inn in Ennis, Ireland, and Louis comes to review it. Liam is their handyman, Niall absolutely doesn’t work there, and home is most definitely where the heart is.”)
  10. Sanity Not Included - OT5 au, must read, this is one of the funniest things you will ever get the pleasure of going through; also check everything else by scottmcniceass, there is some wonderful ziam au’s, I absolutely adore this writer (Someone probably should have stopped the five of them from living together in one house.)
  11. To Be The Friction In Your Jeans - ultimate OT5 smut, I guarantee you won’t read anything hotter than this (Harry is an exhibitionist. He gets up to shenanigans. This is a fill for this prompt at the kink meme: Harry really, really likes to be watched. When they’re all lounging around watching TV he’ll start kissing Louis and he’ll take it as far as he can until Louis makes him stop because the other boys are in the room or drags him away to finish in private. He’ll do it wherever - at home, on the bus, in the car, backstage in the dressing room. The boys maybe kind of secretly wish Louis would stop stopping Harry, and maybe one night when they’re drunk he does. Except. It got really, really out of control.)
  12. You Are The Blood - Hogwarts AU, can’t get better than this; also check everything else by sarcasticfluentry, especially pep talk turned into pep rally (OT5 smut);  (“A seventh-year Hogwarts AU in which Niall gets all the girls, Liam goes on a journey of self-discovery, Zayn falls in love, Harry wants something more, and Louis tries to figure out once and for all why he, a Muggleborn, was sorted into Slytherin.”)
  13. You You You - absolutely hilarious, I loved the nouis friendship here paired with famous!harry and nonfamous!louis, plus louis’ twitter persona is amazing; also check everything else by isthatyoularry (“Infamous boybander leaves club together with unknown,” read the headline. Underneath were pictures of a boy with dark curls, green eyes and very tight pants. They both studied the article for a moment, reading it through quickly.“Is that…?” Louis frowned. That guy almost looked exactly like… “HOLY FUCKING SHIT!”
    “Louis,” Niall said, looking absolutely fucked over. “You just fucked the most wanted guy on earth. You just fucked Harry Styles of One Direction.”)

  14. Give Me Truths - this was so painful, but it’s such a well-crafted story with an amazing ending plus the character developement is superb, TW: emotional/physical abuse (Louis is a psychology student with a tattoo count as high as his genius IQ. Harry is in a (sort-of) relationship with a homophobic man and hates himself a little more every day. Things fall apart and Louis puts him back together.Or, the one in which Louis falls in love with a fragile boy and tells him every beautiful truth in the world, as long as it makes him happy.)
  15. And The Reason Is You - this was deleted from ao3, but it’s a shame, it’s such a great piece with zarry and lilo friendships (Zayn and Harry are the socialite sons of two high-end record producers and the heirs to the future of Myles Records. The two are reckless, loud and out of control. They have no regard for reputation or responsibility. Liam and Louis work for Horan’s catering, their friend Niall’s catering business, and are at almost every event that Myles Records throws. After one disastrous night, Zayn and Harry are dragged home upon request by Paul, Liam and Louis. Hijinks, drama and love ensue. This includes a Zarry friendship (a bit of unrequited love in this respect, too), Nosh, and body shots.)
  16. Another Hazy May harry shoots guns better than he shoots footie, and louis writes in the third person, zayn’s kardashian poster as the foundation of a friendshipand and liam payne as batman (“louis is a terrible poet and harry lives in the now and they have six weeks to fall in love but, really, it only takes six seconds. bookshop meets military meets summer romance au ft. marlboros, the backstreet boys, and underrated literary devices.”)
  17. Learning To Breathe - fluff and angst mostly (He’s playing football at one of the top universities in England and he should love everything about his life right now, but instead he’s moving backwards. How does your past fit into your present? Louis is still figuring it out.)
  18. Hiding Out In The Kitchen -  this one is really cute, and I loved the ending (Harry’s in an internationally famous boyband with his three best mates, he gets laid on a pretty regular basis, and he’s headed to Australia in a week. He doesn’t need anything else, and he certainly doesn’t need a boyfriend. If this nice guy he met in a coffeeshop wants to date him, great—but that’s all it is. Right?)
  19. If I Could Hold You - famous!harry, soooo good (“Louis isn’t a fan of popstars. Unless the popstar has curly hair, green eyes, and is named Harry Styles. He really likes that popstar.”)
  20. Hold Me Closer - (“Louis Tomlinson is one of the most promising dancers of the English National Ballet, on track to become the youngest principal dancer in the company’s history. That is, until forces conspire to significantly complicate his life, including: a surprise ballet, an unfairly attractive guest choreographer, and being pushed into a rivalry with his best mate. Featuring lots of wine, dancing, pining, and a happy ending.”)
  21. Just Me, You, And This Box Of Matches - H&L live in the same building, really cool Harry character (“Louis is fairly sure that his new neighbour is going to destroy him. And also their apartment building, and the dumpsters outside, and all the forests within a thirty mile radius. But. Mostly him.”)
  22. All Too Human - kids au, so cute, Harry’s persona here is so out of this world (“Louis has a 3 year old son and works at a daycare while getting his education degree.Harry’s a fresh face Popstar with the world in his hands.They meet over applesauce and hide n’ go seek.”)
  23. Feel The Chemicals Burn In My Bloodstream - to read more than once (“Harry is a journalist with a lot of secrets and Louis is the future king of the United Kingdom; they live together for 60 days.”)
  24. Adding: Escapade (as it already made hl fic history) In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved. But when the wedding is for his lifelong best friend (and former boyfriend), and is happening in under a month, finding a date for the ceremony and accompanying festivities becomes more of an adventure than he ever could have planned for. 

ollyyears: earlier tonight outside Downing Street. ✨ watching our prime minister Theresa May ( who was not elected by anybody ) do and say anything to appease her new bff whilst she merrily dismantles our NHS, our economy and our public services is blood-chillingly disgusting. i feel so safe knowing our political leaders are such rabid lie-spewing human-rights hating besties! whewwwww it ain’t cute ! we are living through a critical time in history and we gotta keep fighting, stay focussed, and get organised. love to you all ❤️💛💚💙💜💙💚💛(Shout out to the girl who just had ’“Statistics” - Kim kardashian’ on a poster ) xx
