Harry is the world’s most persistent seduction-baker, a questionable dog-sitter, and Louis’s biggest fan. Louis hasn’t written in years, is trying to pass loneliness off as cynicism, and absolutely hates his fans. It’s probably destiny.
Becoming a best-selling author isn’t as difficult as Louis would have guessed. It seems all you need these days is the perfect blend of alcohol induced philosophy, complete disregard for one’s dignity, a live blog about how fucked love is, and a bored publisher interested enough to offer him a deal.
AU where Louis Tomlinson attends the vigorous, demanding performing arts school: Guildhall in hopes to complete his theatre degree. He is a scholarship student, always having to work twice as hard to prove his worth which has caused him to feel resentment and anger towards his subordinate position.
Harry Styles is the wealthy, naturally gifted actor who effortlessly snatches all the main roles within the class. The complete contrast to everything Louis is.
Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles have had bad blood and despised each other for the two years they attended Guildhall together, making each task a competition between each other.
In the final year, when Guildhall produces and performs an original play, Louis is heartbroken to learn the lead role has been been received to Harry and he’s the second role. He’s mostly terrified, however, when he realises he has to date Harry in the play as their characters. They come together through awkward stage kisses that transforms to hate sex, heated arguments, rehearsal times after lectures and baking carrot cake together.
“I am right here,” she says loudly, and she can almost hear the crack when Louis’ head whips around to stare at her.
“Why?” Louis asks, and Harry feels her insides shrivel up and die.
Harry didn’t plan to join the football team. She didn’t plan to sleep with the captain of the football team. She definitely didn’t plan to sleep with the closeted captain of the football team, who promptly acted as if nothing happened and left Harry a pathetic, pining mess.
Pool water dyed blue, a deep hatred for R.E.M., shorts catching on fire, a karaoke night that somehow changes everything, an angering lack of proper communication—oh, and what’s camp without a bit of rivalry?
(AU in which Louis is a summer camp counselor along with a few other less-than-qualified people just trying to make it through the next four weeks in one piece. The curly-headed bloke from the camp sharing the campsite with them surely won’t let that happen)
Since I’ve already done the Top 5 hairstyles for Haikyuu, I’m gonna go rogue and use this ask to do a Top 5 anime hair of all time (male edition)!
1. Rin Matsuoka (Free!). I adore everything about it: the particular deep red color, the cut, the little ponytail…*sighs* In my defense, I can say that there’s not a single top 5 about character features that Rin wouldn’t win. To me, he’s simply perfect.
2. Todoroki Shouto (Boku No Hero Academia). The two tone curse strikes again, this time combining my two favorite hair colors when it comes to anime: red and white. One of the most amazing things is that he actually has a backstory for it, the kind of backstory that would destroy your heart in every way a heart could be destroyed. He’s my favorite hero, but this goes without saying.
3. Kaworu Nagisa (Neon Genesis Evangelion). When it comes to pure beauty and character design, I think that no other character could ever rival Kaworu. Not an angel for nothing. He started my “characters with silver platinum hair” obsession and, among them, he still is and forever will be my favorite <3
4. Chuuya Nakahara. (Bungou Stray Dogs). WELL. OF COURSE. I’m literally obsessed with Chuuya’s hair. Everything about it is beautiful and fits him so perfectly, especially its particular asymmetrical cut, one of the most original in the “portable” anime hair. Overall, I think that his hair is the best part of his character design.
5. Prince Diamon (Sailor Moon). Basically, a Rin with white hair, what more a girl like me could ask for? (he’s one of my favorite villain of the whole series and probably the most problematic) (p.s. I can’t stop thinking about how he could fit so well as a villain in bsd too, damn it)
- bonus: …as you can see my preferences are all in the shades of red and white, that’s why a special mention is due to one of the most beautiful anime boys I had the pleasure to meet: Akira Hayama from Shokugeki No Souma! I’ve never seen another character with his palette, he’s simply mesmerizing.
On this day in music history: April 19, 1986 - Prince becomes the fifth songwriter in US chart history to hold down the top two positions on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously. His own single “Kiss” moves to number one while The Bangles’ “Manic Monday” written by Prince under the pseudonym “Christopher”, moves up to number two. The only other songwriters to achieve this feat are John Lennon and Paul McCartney (“I Want To Hold Your Hand”, “She Loves You”) in 1964, Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb “Stayin’ Alive” “(Love Is) Thicker Than Water”, “Night Fever”) in 1978, Elvis Presley (“Don’t Be Cruel”, “Love Me Tender”) in 1956, and Jim Steinman (“Total Eclipse Of The Heart”, “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All”) in 1983.
So! A friend of mine on FB asked me late last night for Korean drama recommendations. She’s never watched kdramas before, so without intending to I just vomited up brief feels, synopses, and titles for her from which to choose. These titles were only the ones that immediately came to mind off the top of my head. Seeing as how I assume some of you adorable follower-humans might enjoy kdramas too, I thought I’d share. Most likely you diehards (pun not intended) out there have already seen these, but here’s some dramas to throw in your face anyway! Since it’s my thing, I’m going to
go by genre; so all will have romance as either a main plot line or as a subplot. Brace yourself for the d'awws!
If you’re in the mood for a serious, beautiful, powerhouse of a drama with
adult themes (ie adultery but not really…long story), dreams and money, sacrificing
your true self for security to forsake happiness, and of COURSE sex and pianos,
then you need to watch Secret Love Affair. It is hot and intense and has an
open ended interpretation for a finale that will leave you stunned and happy.
I mean, damn, guys…come on just LOOK at this sexiness!
Plus it’s just a damn good drama all around. So watch it.
looking for something that walks the line between comedy and paranormal, you
NEED to see The Master’s Sun. Its heroine is an hilariously adorable girl who
can see ghosts, and the hero is a skeptic who, when the female lead touches,
makes poltergeists disappear. It’s probably one of the best dramas that
incorporates creepy horror with perfect comedy!
looking for something a bit different, you HAVE to watch Arang and the
Magistrate. Same concept as The Master’s Sun, except the female lead is dead
and a ghost, the setting is ancient Korea, and there’s gods, goddesses, action,
magic, and evil political dudes. Plus the male lead is hilariously apathetic,
and the female lead is a badass who kicks ass as a dead girl! It’s funny and
dark and heartfelt and will leave you with all of the heart eyes! Plus it has the cutest ending that ever cuted itself.
looking for something strictly comedy and a bit silly, with moments of
seriousness and more cute than you could shake a stick at, you need King of
High School. Take an 18 year old high school guy and make him pose as his older
brother as a prestigious CEO in a company that a dowdy, 30 year old over-looked
heroine works at and you talk about some of the CUTEST comedy you’ve ever
witnessed in your freakin’ life!
looking for something hella melodramatic and intense, go with Secret Love. Heroine is engaged to a guy who gets involved in a hit-and-run that kills a girl, and the heroine takes the fall for her fiance. Turns out
the victim was the pregnant girlfriend of the male lead. The drama explores the idea of falling in love with someone, even as you hate them. Suffice to say, IT IS
INTENSE, and a bit nuts of a drama, but it will leaving you feeling all of your
emotions and then some.
If you want
some time travel in your drama diet, go with Queen In Hyun’s Man. Hero is an
ancient Korean scholar who finds himself traveling to the future, where he meets the female lead, an aspiring actress who lands the role
of the Queen from our hero’s time period. Comedy, cuteness, angst, and
adorableness ensues. And smexy kisses. OH MY GOD THE SMEXY KISSES!
Keeping in the
same vain as the historical theme, Sungkyunkwan Scandal is adorable and
perfect! Set in ancient Korea, in order to protect her family our female lead
disguises herself as a boy to get into a university of sorts that only permits
men. Cue “male lead finds himself attracted to a boy despite him not being
gay” theme and much hilarious ensues. Ignoring the gay panic is a must,
but if you can it’s so entertaining and will leave you so damn amused!
And, last but
not least, keeping with the gay-panic theme, Coffee Prince. Coffee Prince is
probably one of the best kdramas ever, and it’s basically the same premise as
Sungkyunkwan Scandal; female lead lands a job in an all-male working environment
to support her family. The only real difference is that in Coffee Prince, our
heroine opens and closes the drama as a very tom boyish, masculine girl. She’s
never subscribed to gender roles, so it makes her character far more
interesting. There’s angst and cute and smexy kisses and great characters and everything you could ever want in a drama!
