Louis woke up on the morning he was meant to volunteer at the Feed the Homeless program at St. Mary’s church hoping for an opportunity to give back a little to a city that has given him everything he could ever want. Little did he know, there was one more great thing waiting there for him; a boy with radiant green eyes in a weathered jacket and a beat-up backpack slung over his shoulders.
With his breakout single platinum three times over and his second album still selling out in stores around the world, Louis Tomlinson has made it to the top. However, his position as Pop Heartthrob of the Decade is threatened by the edgier, more artistic Zayn, who happens to be releasing an album a week after Louis’ upcoming third. Louis needs something groundbreaking- scandalous, even- to push past him in the charts. Much to Louis’ dismay, his PR team calls in The Sexpert.
Consulting with PR firm Shady, Lane and Associates pays the bills so that Harry Styles can spend his down time doing what he really loves: poring over data. On weekends and late into the evenings, he researches gender, presentation, and sexual orientation, analysing the longitudinal study that is his father’s life’s work. That is, until his newest client, the popstar with the fascinating secret, drags him off his couch and frighteningly close to the spotlight.
As the album’s release date approaches, will Tomlinson and Styles be able to pull off the most risky PR scheme of the millennium and beat Zayn in sales or will the heat of their feelings for each other compromise everything?
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)
Fashion AU. Louis is the editor in chief of Vogue magazine, and Harry’s running British GQ. Featuring Zayn as the crazy creative director and Louis’ confidant, Liam as the sports writer that gets to sit front row at fashion week and DJ Neil as the only sane person in the whole story.

The Dresden Files - Setting Pilgrimage Master Post
We took a trip to Chicago and I got a chance to visit 3 of the settings from different Dresden stories. We saw Sue at the Field Museum (I checked under the plaque by Sue’s real skull; no Der Erlking to be found), spent some time at the enormous and gorgeous St Mary Of The Angels church, and saw where Kincaid would have been hiding in the ceiling at the Shedd Museum (the Beluga whales were representin’).
St Marys Church Ellel by Barry Smith Via Flickr: St. Mary’s Chapel, Ellel Grange, was built by Alderman Preston and consecrated in 1873. The Chapel is unused and in a state of disrepair.
The site lies to the south of Ellel Grange on the edge of a well wooded knoll. It is completely screened from all sides by mature woodland with access to the site being via a long single track access road on the western side of the A6.
The site itself contains the existing Chapel building (formerly known as the Church of St. Mary and now known as Kings Lee Chapel) and the detached small Mausoleum building. These buildings are redundant at present and are in the ownership of Ellel Ministries, who have been seeking a viable use of the Grade II* listed Chapel building which is in need of repair and is currently on the English Heritage Buildings at risk register in the priority C category.
