I'm new to 5sos.. so could you tell me how they met and started with the band?

this is going to be long lmao ok 

So it all started back in high school, Calum, Michael & Luke all went to the same school. At first Michael and Calum were best friends and Michael hated Luke and Calum’s bitch ass went along with hating him too. So that hatred lasted for a year then Luke started posting covers on youtube, and he preformed with Calum at a talent show their school hosted and Michael decided to ask Luke to form a band. Calum was never actually asked to join he just assumed he was in lmao. 

Then they started posting covers together on Luke’s youtube channel and they booked a gig at the Annandale Hotel and realised that in order for this to work they needed a drummer. Michael is basically friends with everyone and was friends with Ashton on Facebook, he messaged Ash asking if he wanted to play to a crowd of 200 people, obviously Ashton at this time was really into his music as his step dad would always bring him on stage to play drums for his band at the end of their sets, so Ash was like hell yeah i’ll play a crowd of 200! 

I then believe they rehearsed a few times together and nearly kicked Ashton out because didn’t play fifa and he wore this horrid purple shirt that offended Calum to no end lmao. They all thought ash was weird because at their first rehearsal he arrived at practise riding his push bike all the way from the train station to Michael’s house and was sweating bucket loads, but in the kids defence they do live in Australia lmao. They then played the Annandale Hotel, but only about 12 people came, this included all of their parents in the 12 people hahaha. Their set mainly consisted of according to Ashton “horribly played” Blink 182, Green Day and Adele covers, plus a few songs Cal had written to the 12 people watching them. After the show, Mikey, Luke and Cal discussed letting ash into the band then Cal got on one knee and asked Ashton to join and that is the story of how 5SOS became 5SOS.

I think that people should think for thirty seconds and stop making posts about how all Christians are so angry about gay marriage being legalized when there are literally LGBT+ Christians who've been waiting for this just as long as non-Christian LGBT+ people.

And when there are churches celebrating this. Mine added a special prayer that the Supreme Court would make the right decision and side with Love. I don’t think all Christians are so angry. (Or do Catholics not count again?)

HOLY COWS this was awesome! Really interesting spin on the boys’ cannon storyline within an 80’s punk!AU. Amazingly written - put a nice loud playlist on in the background and it’s even better. (Warnings added are mine, not the authors)

Snake Eyes by boopboop

There’s a lot of expectation attached to Steve Rogers’ name. It’s taken him years to prove his own worth - that he’s made it so far in the USNA on his own merit and not just because of his father. He’s close though - there are only a few more months until he graduates and gets to stand on his own two feet. It’s taken a lot of effort to get there, and a lot of sacrifices.
Bucky’s beyond the point of expectation. When your father and grandfather have both been President - and your mother nurses political ambitions of her own - brilliance is a foregone conclusion. He’s just counting down the final months of his confinement to the glass cage of the White House and he’s determined to put that whole world behind him.
But as the days standing between them and their dreams dwindle, Steve comes to realize he might have made one sacrifice too many, and Bucky learns that his freedom comes at a cost he’s never going to be able to pay.

This isn’t just any old Political AU, this is the Political AU to end all other AUs. Even if you stay away from WIP normally, seriously, this one is worth it. Rumlow’s a bitch, Clint’s a goddamn saint, Bucky’s breaking my heart, and, ugh, I seriously need to give Steve a hug. One of the most beautifully written things in the history of ever if you only read one thing, read this.

Welcome to the Jungle by neversaydie

“What do you think about guy-guy scenes?”

He was too self-conscious to act, modelling didn’t pay enough, and time out of school for the medical trial that fixed his body had left him barely scraping a pass on his GED. He shared an apartment with a burlesque dancer, and she’d talked him into it over a weekend and way too much tequila.

Three pictures and one embarrassingly short amateur jerk-off video later, and here he is.

“Gay scenes?”

His mom can never find out about this.

It’s another Political AU (I have a thing, don’t judge me) only this time Steve’s the one in office and it starts off as a collage AU and progresses from there. Damn, it’s another sad one, I’d apologise but I just re-read the ending and remembered why I loved it so much…

Critical Feline Mass by Kryptaria & rayvanfox

Adjusting to civilian life is hard for any military veteran — especially for one ex-sniper with a cybernetic arm, a classic Harley, and friends who keep trying to ‘help.’ When Sam Wilson at the VA sends Sergeant Barnes to rent a room from the hottest guy in the DC area, Bucky thinks maybe civilian life is worth it after all. And then he finds out Captain Rogers is everything Bucky’s not: a real hero, a Medal of Honor recipient, and an all-around nice guy. Bucky doesn’t have a chance in hell with him.
Sam was a huge help to Steve Rogers when he left the military. In the spirit of ‘pay it forward,’ Steve decides to rent out his basement room to a vet in need. But when Sergeant Barnes shows up on his doorstep, he knows he’s in for a world of trouble. Barnes is exactly what Steve never knew he wanted, from his bedroom eyes to his wicked innuendos. And he’s Steve’s tenant.
A love story in twelve chapters, including two Harley-Davidsons, a guardian angel, multiple snipers, the only woman who can scare them into behaving themselves, spontaneous kittens, and one attacking sheep.

When Captain Steve Rogers left the Army he fell in to a life of cooking. He never expected it to lead him to become a personal chef for the Barnes family, one of the most influential families in Washington D.C.

Sex, Drugs & Needles by OhCaptainMyCaptain

Bucky’s a bit of a masochist in that sense – needles and the buzz of a tattoo gun have always turned him on…
It’s even worse that this client is what they call a ‘needle virgin’. Doesn’t appear to have a piercing anywhere on him (although Bucky could still be surprised; you never know what people have hiding under their clothes), and he’s already made it clear that he has no prior ink. Bucky’s always found something inherently sexy about being the first person to introduce another to that experience. Not all people like it; some can only handle the one tattoo and then they’re done for good, never seen again.
Others have the tendency to come back, and Bucky always feels a small sense of pride when he watches those select clients getting more and more added to their bodies – now in love with the art form. And if they happen to be getting tattooed by Clint, or Natasha, or Logan, there’s always that feeling of, But my art went on you first.
He has absolutely no problem popping this guy’s needle cherry.

Tattoo Shop AU. This is part of her Porn-Prompt series (so it’s pretty heavy on the explicit if that’s not your thing) but there is so so much more than just that in this story. Gorgeous, believable plot that you’ll be thinking about for weeks. Oh, and once again Clint and Nat are fab.

VEGAN and oil-free Zucchini Bread

…that doesn't taste oil-free

My mum loved this recipe and said it was better than any zucchini bread she’s ever made. And she’s now 45 so she’s made many loaves of zucchini bread!!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour of choice (I used 1 cup of all-purpose and 1 cup of whole wheat)
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 heaping tsp of cinnamon
  • ½ tsp of nutmeg (I added a bit more because I love nutmeg so much)
  • ¾ cup of organic cane sugar
  • 1 chia or flax egg (1 egg = 1 tbsp of milled chia or flax plus 3 tbsp of water, stirred well, and set aside)
  • 1 and ½ cup or shredded zucchini (I leave the skin on mine and I also added a little more, about 1 and ¾ cups, more or less depending on your preference)
  • 2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 and ¼ cups of plant milk (I used unsweetened almond)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (about 180 C)
  2. Make the chia or flax egg and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together your chia or flax egg, shredded zucchini, lemon juice, and plant milk.
  5. Add the zucchini mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined.
  6. Line a loaf pan with parchment or foil and pour batter into pan.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until a toothpick or knife is inserted and comes out clean.
  8. Once loaf is completely cooled, it can be pulled out of the pan by the foil or parchment and set on a plate for easy serving!

ENJOY!!!
