my stereo heart

my favorite fics [3/?]

my heart’s a stereo (and this melody is meant for you) by Zayz/@avengerlexa [122k]

Louis Tomlinson, an ex-boybander now stuck in the rut of a comfortable has-been, gets the chance to resuscitate his career when a pop star asks him to write a duet for her highly-anticipated comeback album. Through a chance encounter, he finds a quirky lyricist in Harry Styles, the curly-haired baker and former writer with an above-average sense of rhyme and inexplicable interest in personal questions.

Or: the Music & Lyrics AU that no one asked for, in which Louis is Hugh Grant, and Harry is Drew Barrymore, and the slow burn is (hopefully) worth the wait.

all time low inspired lock screens pt. 3/?? requested by anonymous. I threw in a ‘therapy’ lock screen because  I very much like having an even number :) please like/reblog is you use/save any of them! 

While on my way to the deli to grab a sandwich, I had my spotify on shuffle. What Makes You Beautiful started up shortly before I arrived. I paused the song to place my order and heard Sign of the Times playing over the deli stereo. My heart barely had time to swell with sufficient pride for Harry before the song ended, but no matter, as it was immediately followed by Strip That Down. When Liam’s song ended, I put my headphones back on and hit play on my phone, What Makes You Beautiful picking up precisely where it had left off.

Though I only walked about a block, I went on quite the journey.

My Heart’s a Stereo

i posted this on ao3 many months ago and it got really good feedback, so i’m gonna post it here too.

Dipper watched with pure elation as the door thudded closed behind Grunkle Stan, leaving the shack empty of anyone other than himself. It seemed almost too good to be true. Only when he heard the sound of an engine driving off into the distance did he allow himself to believe his fortune and sink down into the worn cushions of the living room couch.

Dipper gave a sigh of content as the sunlight-heated fabric warmed his skin. These last few days have been more than exhausting, and finally, finally he had a small period of time to himself. It felt like ages ago since he had just been able relax without having to worry about Stan punching a dream demon in the face, or said demon helping Mabel create a literal glitter bomb. And now he could.

Stan was out giving a particularly large tour, Mabel was at the Northwest’s Manor with Pacifica, and Bill was out in the woods as he had been for the last two hours doing god only knows what. Usually he would be more than a little concerned that Bill was spending such a large amount of time alone and unmonitored, but at the moment he honestly couldn’t bring himself to care. He didn’t even want to think about Bill or the portal or anything else, he could deal with all of that later. But right now was his time, and a nap sounded pretty damn good.

He rolled onto his side and nuzzled his face into the armrest, closing his eyes.

“Hiya, Pine Tree!” Bill chirped.

“Why?” Dipper groaned into the material pathetically.

He could practically hear Bill roll his eyes. “Geez kid, don’t sound so happy to see me.”

With reluctance (so, so much reluctance) Dipper opened his eyes. Bill leaned against the wall by the television, seeming to have appeared out of thin air. The demon smirked at the boy’s annoyance.

“Bill,” Dipper sighed, “whatever you want, hold it. I want to be left alone for a bit, okay?”

Bill’s smirk blew into a full smile. “Wow, really?” he exclaimed dramatically. “That’s exactly what I wanted, too! We can be alone together!”

“You know that’s not- Wha- Hey!” Before a full protest could leave the human’s mouth, Bill strided towards him and pushed Dipper’s lower legs off the edge of couch before plopping down in the seat himself.

The demon made a show of stretching his limbs as he sat. “Ah, much better!”

Dipper rolled onto his back and propped himself up on his elbows to look at the Bill full on. “I’m serious, Bill. Whatever you’re here for, you’re not getting it now. If ever.”

“Ugh, quit being so negative Pine Tree,” Bill chastised. “It’s really unattractive.”

Unattractive? Dipper rose his eyebrows. “Excuse me?”

“You’re excused,” Bill responded easily. “Now scoot over, would you? You’re taking up the whole couch.”

“Why should I? I was here first.” A note of irritation rang in Dipper’s voice. He felt slightly childish saying such a thing, but then decided he didn’t care. He was tired, Bill was annoying, and he didn’t want to move.

“Then you leave me no other choice,” the demon announced before promptly falling over and landing directly on top of Dipper.

Sure, the demon had invaded Dipper’s personal space plenty of times. At this point, it was a pretty regular occurrence. That still did not make him comfortable with it.

“Bill,” he ground out, cheeks already tinting pink. “Get off of me.”



Dipper was overly aware of just how much heat was radiating off of the demon. Bill’s higher than normal body temperature was quickly warming his legs and midsection and Dipper refused to acknowledge that, despite this, he still had to suppress a shiver.

“Hey kid, I gave you a fair chance to move over, and you rejected it. You better get comfortable, because I’m not going anywhere soon.” To make his point the demon shifted around and wrapped his arms around Dipper’s middle, using his chest as a pillow.

“Seriously, Bill?” Dipper whined. He could feel his face burning now and was thankful the demon was no longer looking at him. “I knew you were clingy but this is too much. Way too much. All I ask for is-”

“Quiet!” the demon hissed, suddenly serious and Dipper immediately stopped talking. Had he done something to make him upset?

Bill remained silent for a few moments before suddenly shoving himself up on his arms and staring at Dipper with an alarmed expression. “Pine Tree, what the fuck is in your chest?”

“In my what?”

“There is a thing ticking in your chest!” Bill exclaimed. “That can’t be normal!”

“Are you talking about my heartbeat?”

“Heartbeat? What is the purpose of it?”

Dipper raised his eyebrows questioningly. “Um, to live?” Bill just stared at him like he had grown another head. “All humans have and require hearts to live, Bill. It sends oxygenated blood throughout our bodies.” he continued. “A heartbeat is just the sound it makes while it does that.” Dipper snickered loudly. “I thought you were supposed to be all-knowing or something. How do you not know what a heartbeat is?”

“Watch it, kid,” Bill growled. Pride had always been the demon’s sore spot. “You couldn’t even begin to comprehend the things I know. Who cares if I don’t bother to educate myself your dumb biological functions?”

Dipper just rolled his eyes. “Whatever, Bill.” It honestly didn’t even matter. He only had about twenty more minutes until Grunkle Stan came back and he’d be damned if he was just going to waste anymore of it arguing. He tried to ignore his present situation as he turned his head away from the demon and closed his eyes, focusing on less on the body on top of him and more on the heaviness of his eyelids.

After only a minute or so while Bill seemed to cool off from his small outburst and settled back onto the human, hugging his middle once more and resting his head back on Dipper’s chest. Dipper didn’t miss the way the demon positioned his head so that his ear pressed flush to his chest, directly above the throbbing organ.

“Why did it slow down?” Bill mumbled after about a minute of silence.


“It was faster when I first heard it. Now it’s slower.”

“Heartbeats change speeds all the time,” Dipper explained. “It all has to do with how worked up or relaxed you are. Right now I’m falling asleep, so it’s slower.”

Bill just hummed in response, squeezing Dipper’s middle slightly tighter and almost nuzzling his chest with the side of his head.

If Dipper was smarter, he might have questioned or even felt uncomfortable sleeping beneath a demon. But he was so tired, and if Bill really wanted to hurt him he could have done it a hundred times already, right?

And with that almost-comforting thought, Dipper fell unconscious.

anonymous asked:

please find underrated Larry fics and rec them to me :)))))) I have read everything it feels like and there is nothing new? :(

Okay sorry for the extreme delay in my response, due to laziness.  I am sure whoever sent me this ask 6 months ago probably will not see this, but I went through my ao3 bookmarks, and I finally have a short list of underappreciated fics I want to rec!!!!!  So, here we go:

Oh, Fortuna by BeNotAfeard (15k)

“Hey, Louis,” Eleanor says suddenly, “wasn’t Harry Styles on X-Factor the same year you auditioned?”

“I didn’t know you auditioned for X Factor!” Perrie gasps, as Louis sends a death glare Eleanor’s way, who at least has the decency to look apologetic.“Oh my god, did you meet him?”

“Right, I need another drink.” Louis gets up heavily, ignoring Zayn’s concerned look and Eleanor’s guilty one.  

His head is still fuzzy, but he doesn’t feel warm anymore.

(Or, three years after Louis is sent home at the Judges Houses stage of X-Factor, and Harry finds international fame as a solo artist, they meet again at a local pub in London.)

I really love pining ahaha the most! And this fic has pining and a little bit of angst, and it’s very cute!!!

even if we were cursed by TinyBeautifulTales(MikeAndHarveyTime) (25k)

“what d’you want me to say?” louis hisses, finally looking at harry slumped against the island, arms crossed, eyes hooded. he can feel his hackles rising, defensive and bristling against harry’s presence, “that we’ll disappear when this is over? that we’ll go someplace, and the worst that’ll happen is a little knick when we’re in the kitchen making dinner? that i’ll just–” the urge to stomp almost overcomes louis. this isn’t fair, this isn’t fair, this isn’t right.

(or a remus and tonks au)

The tone of this is sort of bittersweet, but in a nice way.  And also there is a happy ending.  So don’t worry about like, real remus and tonks.      

my hearts a stereo (and this melody is meant for you) by zayz (122k)

I really liked this one a lot. it was emotional, at least for me! it’s great reading about Harry and Louis getting to know each other, and also there is angst that made me go “ohhh nooooooooo,”, but like, in a good way.  

I Can Be Your Hero Baby (Just Let Me Get My Sword) by CalamityK (24k)

“Musketeer?!” the man snorts, ignoring his hand, “Yeah right, you’re a Musketeer and I have a fat bottom!”

Harry observes the man’s body, letting his hand drop, and decides that he has a very nice bottom indeed, “Your backside is not in the least lacking, this is true.”
Or that AU where Louis is a private investigator with London’s biggest crime boss out for his head, and Harry is the Musketeer he accidentally calls through time to save him.

I read this awhile ago, but it was hilarious and I felt happy the whole time I was reading it.  It was just delightful, that’s how i felt about it, so I highly recommend! 

me and you and you and me by an orphaned account (it’s really lemonface everyone!!!! world’s all time best tagger) (3k)

On the occasion of Harry’s 20th birthday, aka pretty much total FWP (fluff without plot).

ahahaha okay I will be reccing this lil fic until I’m 80, every time I make a fic rec for the next 5 decades!!!!  There’s just something about it that makes me SO emotional every time I read it, so I want everyone to read it too.

All We Have by Colourexplosion (6k)

He looks at the person who’s asked him a question and then immediately wishes he hadn’t. He’s beautiful, is the thing, and Harry’s met him before.

“No, sorry,” he says, shaking his head, averting his eyes. It’s an old habit, one he’s gotten better about resisting, but he supposes seeing Louis Tomlinson out in the wild transports him right back to youth club.

“Ah, s’fine really,” Louis says, instead of just walking away like a normal person, “Pretty boy like you shouldn’t be smoking anyway, yeah?”

Harry’s cheeks flood with heat before he can stop it, and he squeezes his eyes shut. Of course. Of course Louis Tomlinson — the boy who basically made Harry realize he’s gay — thinks he’s cute now. Ten years after the fact, and much too late for it to do any good at all.

Or, a ‘Grown’ au

I truly love this fic.  There is something so universal about feeling embarrassed about past versions of yourself and this fic captures that so well, I think!! .  Anyway, thank you @jessimond for writing it, I love you also, not just the fic.

Okay, well that is all for now.  I always feel like I’ve read every last fic available, so I hope this helps a least one person who feels similarly!!!!!! 

This list is too fucking long and im sorry but i love all these blogs so much even though half of them dont even follow me/know i exist .-.
