Summary: 
When Louis had moved to the island a year ago, he only wanted two things: to serve good food to good people, and to live on the beach.
Was that too much to ask for?
Apparently the universe thought so, because Louis had only gotten three months of blissful, uninterrupted beach living before Harry Styles moved in to the empty shop next door. Louis was hoping whoever took over the space might be a tour guide, or even another restaurant (with non-competing menu options, of course), but no – he had gotten Harry Styles. The guy who wore Hawaiian dad-shirts unironically. The guy who spent his time making soap by hand out of goat’s milk.

Or, a fluffy AU in which Louis owns a restaurant that’s next door to Harry’s shop, and Louis is completely unaware how smitten he really is.


(This fic was based on the prompt I made for my Door Mood Board as H+L Fics!)

Yoosung

  • Fabric softener like straight up Downy kinda stuff
  • Also once he accidentally bought women’s shampoo
  • BUT, the day after he used it you compliment how his haired smelled, so he still uses it
  • he smells so soft and nice
  • I wish I could bottle it up and sell it 

Zen

  • he wears this distinct cologne he wants to have his own cologne line so he keeps experimenting with smells
  • a little bit like smoke, but not strong enough for it to be gross
  • Also sometimes a little minty from brushing his teeth Idk why but his toothpaste his super strong
  • it’s really a really good combination trust me

Jaehee

  • she smells like warmth I know that’s not a smell but it’s true OKAY
  • also a little sweet from her perfume
  • COFFEE
  • I mean it’s pretty subtle, but imagine a deep dark roast smell it’s pretty great

V

  • he smells the way puppies look
  • look he’s just so soft and pure and when you get a good whiff of him it smells like home

Machi’s Favorite TV Show!

Don’t worry Machi just wait 3 years and you’ll have Sensei Takahashi all to yourself. I guess in Machi’s world the world on MonMusu is a Romantic Soap Opera. Which makes sense. HAHA! (>∇<)

You know this would actually be funny as hell to watch. XD

I ❤ Monster Girls!

(As always, you can find all my fic recs in my FIC REC MASTERPOST) 

- The Edge of the Stars  , by @casuallyhl : Louis laughed. “You think you can convince some random guy to want to go out with me?”“Oh baby,” Jay chuckled. “I can convince all of the UK to want to go out with you.” Or, a Meet the Parents AU where Harry is the man of Louis’ dreams, and it’s up to Jay to convince him to date her son.

Larry TV Reality show AU (16k) : awesome fic for cheer you up when you’re sad, and perfect way to show how Louis and Jay relationship was amazing and beautiful. Cute and funny and fluffy :) No smut.

- just the sound of your voice  , by @a-writerwrites : It’s just. Harry’s so fucking quiet during sex and now Louis’ obsession with it is…it’s incessant.  Louis questions it day and night, the enigma of it buzzing around his head like an annoying mosquito — all of the reasons why he’s so quiet consuming every one of his waking thoughts.  Like, maybe he turns into an alien during sex if he’s not really careful?  So he has to concentrate so hard on not turning into another creature he’s effectively struck mute from it.  Or maybe…maybe he’s like one of those people who’s into tantric sex, like Sting or a throwback from the 1960s?  And when he’s about to orgasm he travels to another plane of existence or something.  There has to be a reason for it.  There has to be.

Larry smut fic (6.4k) : not saying I’m very proud that Lisa wrote something about my prompt, BUT IM VERY PROUD AND I LOOOOOVE IT VERY MUCH. So it’s all about dirty talk and a bit of rough sex, and yes, they kins of share that really.

- Love Is on The Radio , by @perfectdagger  and star_l:  “So Louis, who’s the lucky person that will not only get to see Arsenal and Manchester United facing each other, but will also possibly become your girlfriend… or boyfriend? I mean, that’s a good catch, to ask someone out like this on the radio. It will be hard to say no after this.”  “It’s, hm, his name is…” Oh boy, Harry was about to pass out, he couldn’t bear to hear what Louis would say. Susie was looking at him, worried eyes watching him from the till as she noticed that Harry had simply abandoned his cupcake duties. “Harry. Harry Styles.” To win a pair of tickets to watch Manchester United playing, Louis may have possibly lied to Nick Grimshaw on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, asking Harry, his best friend, to be his boyfriend. Problem is - Harry has always been in love with Louis and so, this Valentine’s he’s gonna see his dreams come true, with a tiny bit of a twist, in order to watch the football team they have loved together since they were kids.

Larry BFF to lovers and Fake Relationship AU (35k) : with a lot of social medias interactions, and Grimmy being cute ! Bottom Harry for the smut.

- Mercedes Boy , by @fullonlarrie : There’s a surprise waiting at home for Louis after he finishes his day on the tracks at the Mercedes AMG Driving Experience.

Larry canon smut (5k) : I mean : PANTIES AND CAR SEX. That’s all. (bottom Harry)

- Them Butterflies  , by @gaycousinlarry  : To sum it all up - Louis is beautiful. Breathtakingly so. And Harry can’t find it in himself to even question the fact that he thinks so. Louis is mesmerising, nearly magnetic with all the energy bouncing off of him. Harry doesn’t know what to make of it, but he knows he doesn’t want this night to end.  This is the extraordinarily ordinary AU where Harry falls in love for the first time and Louis learns how to fall in love all over again.

Larry strangers to Lovers and sexuality crisis AU (68k) : beautiful and really well written, barely angsty . Special kudos for social worker Harry just because. Great smut !  (mostly bottom Louis but they kind of share that)

- They Never Quite Leave   , by @icanhazzalou (sorry it doesn’t let me tag you properly!)  : When Liam Payne inherited his great aunt’s mansion, he never expected it to be haunted. With the help of famous ghost hunters Harry and Niall, Liam is hoping to evict the ghost and sell the house once and for all.There’s just one problem: Louis has been in that house for a hundred years, and he doesn’t much feel like leaving.Alternatively; come for the ghost sex, stay for the feels.

Larry Ghost AU (24k) : awesome , a bit angsty and also fluffy and cute, with a bit of Ghost sex (this is a thing, yes). :)

- Let’s Go Get Away , by @letsjustsee : When Louis had moved to the island a year ago, he only wanted two things: to serve good food to good people, and to live on the beach. Was that too much to ask for? Apparently the universe thought so, because Louis had only gotten three months of blissful, uninterrupted beach living before Harry Styles moved in to the empty shop next door. Louis was hoping whoever took over the space might be a tour guide, or even another restaurant (with non-competing menu options, of course), but no – he had gotten Harry Styles. The guy who wore Hawaiian dad-shirts unironically. The guy who spent his time making soap by hand out of goat’s milk.Or, a fluffy AU in which Louis owns a restaurant that’s next door to Harry’s shop, and Louis is completely unaware how smitten he really is.

Larry Hate to love AU (7k) : funny and cute, with so much fluff and kind of pining ;) No smut.

- Runner on Third , by @flamboyantommo: As Harry stood there, the other man turned around, and he knew he was correct in who he thought it was. “Louis?” he asked, still not quite believing it. Louis blinked. “Harry? Wh– what are you doing here?” “I work here,” Harry said. “What are you doing here?” “Um, I’m picking up my brother. The nurse called and said he was sick.” Harry felt like he was going to be sick. “Wait, Ernest is your brother? Since when do you have a brother?” “Since about seven years ago, I guess. Wait, how do you know Ernest?” “I’m his teacher.” “You’re his what?” Louis exclaimed. Harry gulped. This was going to be a long year. — Or, the AU where Louis and Harry were best friends growing up, but lost touch after Harry moved away. Ten years later, Harry has moved back to town, but he and Louis don’t pick up where they left off.

Larry Ex Friends to Lovers AU (35k) : nice fic with Teacher Harry, a “long time no see” plot, and so much pining ^^ Great Smut too ! (bottom Louis)

bath time - sherlock bathing rosie for the first time

The first time Sherlock gives Rosie a bath it’s after a rather disastrous supper.  John gets stuck at work late, and Sherlock feeds Rosie in his absence, but by the end of it there are mashed up peas all over her, smothered on her face, down her shirt, stuck in her hair, so Sherlock knows he has to give her a bath.  He runs the water, plops her down into it, and she immediately begins to splash, splash, splash, getting water eeeeverywhere and giggling madly.  Sherlock ends up absolutely soaked, soap suds in his hair, and Rosie thinks it’s the funniest thing, so Sherlock scoops up more soap and makes himself a bubble beard, and Rosie laughs so hard she almost falls over in the tub.  She reaches up to smush her hands into Sherlock’s soapy beard, delighted when her fingers find his cheeks.  He can’t help laughing with her, and then he hears more laughter behind him, and he turns to find John standing in the doorway, leaning against the frame, watching them with the fondest look on his face.  Sherlock’s cheeks turn a bit pink, and John just walks into the loo and sinks down to the floor next to him to help him finish washing Rosie up.

Understanding the Makings of African Black Soap.

I love that they mentioned that traditional soaps differ from country to country and even from a state within a country to another state.

This video pretty much focuses on how Yoruba people make it, but it also mentions that it’s widespread in Western Africa, and also draws similarities and differences between the ones these women make and the ones made in other places particularly Ghana and Togo.

I really liked hearing about the rules associated with making it such as: the makers must not use bad language when making it, they mustn’t break bad news to any of the workers while or where they are working, they should ensure that things are alright with their spouses. The women mention that this was really taken seriously in the olden day, and the rules were really revered. One of the women stated that she dosent believe that the soap has any spiritual qualities and that people believed that back in the olden days cause “ojo won ooti la” meaning their eyes weren’t open, which is wrong, the belief that colonialism brought “civilization” or “enlightenment” is so disheartening and I wish it isn’t so prevalent. However it’s a really good and informative video.
