there's a hurricane outside and this is all that i'm doing

Signs as Halsey lyrics
  • Aries: " Dark as midnight sun // Smoke as black as charcoal // Fills into our fragile lungs // Cause when our demons come // Dancing in the shadows // To a game that can't be won."
  • Taurus: "Let's cause a little trouble // Oh, you make me feel so weak // I bet you kiss your knuckles // Right before they touch my cheek."
  • Gemini: "Would you lie for me? // Cross your sorry heart and hope to die for me? // Would you pin me to a wall? // Would you beg or would you crawl? // Stick a needle in your hungry eyes for me?"
  • Cancer: "You're writing lines about me; romantic poetry // Your girl's got red in her cheeks, 'cause we're something she can't see // And I try to refrain but you're stuck in my brain // And all I do is cry and complain because second's not the same."
  • Leo: "Cigarettes and tiny liquor bottles, just what you’d expect inside her new Balenciaga. // Bad romance, turned dreams into an empire. // Self-made success now she rose with Rockafellas. // Survival of the richest, the city’s ours until the fall. // They're Monaco and Hampton’s bound but we don’t feel like outsiders at all."
  • Virgo: "And I sat alone, in bed till the morning // And crying "they're coming for me" // And I tried to hold these secrets inside me // My mind's like a deadly disease"
  • Libra: "'Cause I've done some things that I can't speak // And I've tried to wash away but you just won't leave // So won't you take a breath and dive in deep // 'Cause I came here so you'd come for me"
  • Scorpio: "I don't like them innocent // I don't want no face fresh // Want them wearing leather // Begging, let me be your taste test // I like the sad eyes, bad guys // Mouth full of white lies // Kiss me in the corridor // But quick to tell me goodbye."
  • Sagittarius: "I'm a wanderess // I'm a one night stand // Don't belong to no city // Don't belong to no man // I'm the violence in the pouring rain // I'm a hurricane"
  • Capricorn: "I'm headed straight for the castle // They wanna make me their queen // And there's an old man sitting on the throne that's saying that I probably shouldn't be so mean // I'm headed straight for the castle // They’ve got this kingdom locked up // And there's an old man sitting on the throne that's saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut"
  • Aquarius: "I sold my soul to a three-piece // And he told me I was holy // He's got me down on both knees // But it's the devil that's tryna Hold me down"
  • Pisces: "You were red and you liked me 'cause I was blue // You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky // And you decided purple just wasn't for you"

[FICRECS] Zayn/Liam

It’s me again with a lot to rec :P Also this goes to my lovely Candice amoreziam bc i promised i’d tag her so she could read some :) Sorry for the late bb x

As per usual, bolds → favorites

  • Come On by writingsofamadchild [1.9k | Explicit]
    based on this message sent to me: “avery, i need a fic now, where zayn is being a little shit and goading liam into kissing him, but liam’s not falling for it, so zayn kisses him and he means or it to be this short little peck, but liam just takes over and pushes back, gives zayn the kiss of his life!”


  • living love in slow motion by jmcats [39.5k | Explicit]
    He steadies a hand to the back of Zayn’s head and kisses him like all of the words in his mouth aren’t brilliant enough. He smears them over Zayn’s lips and hopes every single one of them reminds Zayn that Liam’s been in love with him since they were teenage hurricanes. Just before they were eighteen.
    (Or: they’ve been tucked into each other’s side since they were five years old… and Liam’s been a little in love with that and much more since then)



  • Inside the Pocket of Your Ripped Jeans by ellipsometry [34.2k |3 chapters| Mature]
    Fuck Niall, honestly. Fuck him for telling Zayn about this – he of all people should know that despite his leather-jacket-and-cigarette façade, underneath it all Zayn is just a hopeless romantic. And when dealing with hopeless romantics you can’t go serving mysterious, hunky, salt-water-washed strangers up on a silver platter. You just can’t.
    It’s a simple concept, really: Take a photo, then leave a photo. But, like most simple things, Zayn manages to make it much more complicated. So by the time Zayn meets Liam for the first time, he’s been carrying a picture of him around in his pocket for nearly five months.


  • if you’re a stranger to your soul by lissomely [37.1k | Explicit]
    Liam is the director of Wolverhampton’s department of parks and recreation, a job that was never easy to begin with but seems to get exponentially more difficult when the city faces a budget crisis. Enter independent consultants Niall Horan and Zayn Malik, the former of whom mostly wreaks havoc on Liam’s professional life, but the latter of whom seems intent on messing with Liam’s personal life in ways Liam would never have imagined possible.
    Also featuring Harry and Louis as the worst employees ever. Very, very loosely inspired by the sitcom Parks and Recreation.


  • you’re the cure, you’re the pain by whispersbrave [3.4k | Teen]
    The saying goes something like, if you love something let it go. If it comes back, it’s meant to be.
    Or, where Zayn and Liam kiss, get together and break up. Not necessarily in the order.


  • Spill by hollybennett123 [2.3k | Explicit]
    “I think,” Zayn murmurs against Liam’s kiss-swollen mouth, sliding a leg over Liam’s thighs where he’s sat on the sofa and straddling his lap, “You should tell me some more of your fantasies, babe. Like, something you always wanted to do with me but you never told me before.”
    “Um,” Liam says, swallowing thickly and blinking at him. “Like – now?”


  • That Thing We Like by hollybennett123 [3.8k | Explicit]
    Sometimes, though, it’s just like - making a mess is the best part?


  • This Time by Ziamismyotp [7.8k | NR]
    He holds his breath, swallowing with wide eyes when Zayn turns around, a paper cup of coffee in his hand (black, no sugars, no cream), his face coming into full view and Liam gets dizzy with memories. Flashes of hands moving up his chest, chapped but always soft lips running along the column of his throat, gasps and whispers. A beautiful laugh he use to do say the stupidest things just to hear echoing in his ears, squinted eyes and a wrinkled nose. Movies, cuddles, showers, dinners. The way he fit so well, so perfectly in the circle of Liam’s arms like they were molded for each other and only each other.
    He’s got a lovely smile on his face, his eyes focused on the screen of his phone and Liam wonders-no, fears who could be on the other end of that text. And he finds himself unable to move as Zayn makes his way towards the entrance, the door chiming when he steps through and outside. He turns the opposite way, completely unaware of Liam’s presence and he knows he shouldn’t, knows it will just end awkwardly and bad but he can’t stop himself, it comes blurting from his lips before he even knows what he’s doing, “Zayn!”


  • If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home by equallydestructive [28k |10 chapters| Mature]
    28 year old divorcee Liam Payne has made a living out in the wilderness along with his trustee golden retriever, Sasha. It is only when he makes a shocking discovery that his life takes a complete 180 degree turn.
    Or: Lumberjack!Liam finds Zayn buried underneath a foot of snow, nearly frozen to death. Fluff, among other things, follows soon after.


  • Wouldn’t Dream Of It by ziamxo [4.1k | General]
    “Hey,” Zayn begins. “Let me have your number, yeah?” He’s suddenly freezing because—really, Zayn? Really? “I mean.” He begins again, “We should have playdates again. I was—you know, number so that they can— the dogs—“
    “The dogs, yeah. Of course. Can’t dare separate them again, can we?” Liam responds with a grin and it’s within a beat that he takes out his phone.
    “Right, no. That’d be bad.”
    “Absolutely horrid.” Liam grins, pressing buttons onto the phone within his hands.
    “We’d be monsters.”
    “Evil villains.” Liam goes on, looking up at Zayn with raised eyebrows and cheeks pulled up.
    “I–yeah. That. Can’t have that, can we?” Zayn laughs, handing Liam’s phone back to him.
    “Nope, not at all.”
    Or the AU where Liam and Zayn adopt twin puppies, but separately. And when they meet and realize their dogs are litter mates, they use it to their advantage. For their dogs. Not for them, no.

citizenscully  asked:

wow oh my god I'm sorry I was debating between the two I MEANT 7 - FAKE DATING

i got this one twice so i just did an extra long one you’re welcome :)

“Problem?” Clint asks as Natasha bursts into his SHIELD quarters unannounced, collapsing on the couch with a dramatic sigh.

“I just had lunch with Maria,” she says by way of explanation.

“And?” he presses.

“She thinks we’re a thing.”

“You and Maria? Because last time I checked, Nat-”

Natasha groans, chucking a pillow at him. “Not me and Maria, Clint. Me and you.”

“Oh.”

“Yeah. Oh.”

Clint abandons his paperwork on the table and sinks down onto the couch next to her, nudging her shoulder with his own. “You want to stop these rumours?”

She raises one eyebrow skeptically. “How?”

“Easy,” he shrugs. “Let’s be a thing.”

“Are you asking me to be your girlfriend, Barton?”

“’Course not,” he says quickly, hoping she can’t see the blush that colours his face. “I’m just saying that if we make everyone think they’re right, they’ll stop talking.”

“So you want to pretend.”

“I guess so, yeah.”

Natasha shrugs, her shoulder moving against his. “Okay. Let’s pretend.” She slides off the couch and to her feet in one fluid motion, making for the fridge in order to scout out their dinner options.

“It’s empty,” Clint calls from the couch. “You want to do takeout again?”

“Yeah,” she calls back. “Just let me grab a sweater.”

She walks out of Clint’s bedroom in an oversized hoodie which he glances at pointedly. “Do you really wonder why Maria’s making assumptions?”

“Your clothes are more comfortable than mine,” Natasha says defensively. “Also warmer.”

“Let’s go.” Clint’s hand closes around hers and she tenses instantly. “Hey,” he says gently, squeezing her hand. “Relax. Just…just pretend we’re undercover.”

“It’s different, Clint,” she hisses under her breath as they walk down the hallway hand in hand.

“Yeah? Different how?”

“I don’t know. It just is.”

“You’re okay, Nat. You don’t have to act like we’re about to be attacked.”

“Sorry,” she laughs shakily as they step outside into the crisp autumn air. “I guess it’s just been too long since I’ve done this.”

“We don’t have to…” Clint trails off. He tries again. “If this is making you uncomfortable-”

“It’s fine,” Natasha cuts in.

Clint nods, squeezing her hand again with a soft smile.

It almost feels natural. When he brushes his fingers lightly across her back or rests an arm across her shoulders, it doesn’t feel forced. When he introduces her to the man behind the counter at the Chinese restaurant (who he’s apparently on first-name terms with) as ‘my girlfriend, Natasha’, it doesn’t sound one bit rehearsed.

They collapse on the couch when they get back to Clint’s place, takeout containers in hand. Natasha leans into him instinctively and he brings his free hand to her hair, absentmindedly twining his fingers through the curls that fall just below her shoulders.

“Clint?” she asks softly after a moment of silence.

His hand stills in her hair. “Yeah?”

“What are we doing?”

He wants to tell her that it was always real for him, that he’s just pretending to pretend, that he’s been more than aware of the rumours circulating SHIELD for the past few months and he desperately wishes they were true. “I don’t know,” he answers honestly.

“I don’t want to pretend anymore,” she tells him in a whisper, but it might as well have been a scream for all the damage it does to his heart. He feels like he’s been punched in the stomach.

“Okay,” he manages. “It’s okay.”

And then she turns towards him, mumbling something that he doesn’t quite catch, and then her lips are on his and it’s the only thing he can think about.

Later, when he’s lying on the couch with Natasha half-asleep in his arms, her words come back to him, and he tucks them away in his memory. I want this to be real.
