The Sound of Your Voice From Far Away       It’d be perfect, he convinces himself. Things with Lou are – well. They’re the way they are, and there’s no point dwelling on why it’s got that way. But he thinks this would help – not fix them, because they’re not broken. They don’t need to be put back together, they’re just. Out of sync, maybe. It would help. He thinks it would, anyway, if they could just be the two of them again, to be alone together with no outside influences pressing claustrophobically in on them, just for a bit. And driving down an empty highway with nothing else but Louis beside him is the best way to do that that he can imagine.Or, after the U.S. leg of the Take Me Home tour, Harry and Louis drive from L.A. to NYC.

A/N: little Hinny one-shot for September 1st, 19 & ½ years later.  <3 <3

Also available on FF and Ao3!

Harry peaks through the door – bathroom much in demand for the large family on mornings like this – and checks to see who’s currently monopolizing the shower.  But instead of a cloud of steam, he gets a more pleasant view of a certain Weasley daughter’s pale, freckled back.

He clears his throat and she startles, smacking her head into the countertop.  It’s early enough that she’s fairly justified in assuming she’d be alone for a bit longer, but Harry can’t hold back the teasing grin that slips onto his face.  “Alright, Gin?”

“Don’t be an arse. I’m trying to get done before all you boys start making chaos. Guess I have to get up before the sun for that.”

She’s scowling, but her lips are ticked up at the corners, that freckle that bleeds over onto her mouth provoking him as she saunters closer.  “Are you going to make my morning difficult, Harry James?  Or are you going to give me a hand?”

A flush rises on Harry’s neck at the particular emphasis she places on the end of her question.  Not that he’s got a problem with…things or that they haven’t certainly ‘gotten to know’ each other well enough, but it’s a lot to deal with before half eight in the morning.  She leans in close, nose brushing his as she rises on tiptoe, and his hands automatically come to her waist.  “I’m nothing if not chivalrous.”

He sucks in a gasp when her lips dance across his, barely there contact, until she presses a kiss to the corner of his mouth.  “Well, would you like to know what I really need?”

His lips skate across her jawline, hands knitting through her recently shorn locks where they just brush her shoulder blades.  “Always.”

Ginny kisses his chin, her arms looping around his neck.  “Zip me up?”

Looking into her dancing eyes, Harry quirks a brow and leans down, reaching for the bottom of her zip and somehow managing to pull her even closer, but somehow not close enough.  “This seems counterproductive.”

1. And Then A Bit by infinitelymint (158k)

“We’d like to give the fans what they want.” Magee states, placing his hand on the table in front of him and leaning forward. “We want to give them Larry Stylinson.”

Or, take a parallel universe where Louis and Harry were never together, mix in a two year hiatus and an impending comeback, pour in a dash of lost fans, two tablespoons of strong friendship and a Modest! employee with a good idea. Add a squeeze of pretending to be a couple, lots of kisses and a tattoo or two. Stir. Serve: the mother of all publicity stunts.

(aka Harry and Louis fake a relationship for publicity. Eventually it becomes a lot less fake and a lot more real.)

All I need is you and Sunsets

Pairing: Tom Holland x Reader

Summery: Tom plans the perfect date for your one year anniversary

word count: 983

A/N: Just another little drabble I had sitting on my computer. Hope y’all enjoy it :) Feel free to send requests or just say hello 

It was Tom and your year anniversary. You still weren’t sure what he had planned, but he’d been hinting at a surprise for the last week. “Are you sure you’re not busy this weekend?” he asked for the thousandth time while you were making dinner in your apartment. “Babe, I have told you the same thing every time you ask, I requested off a month ago.” You laughed as you flicked water from your hands at him as you washed them in the sink. “Hey! I just want tomorrow to be perfect, sorry if I want to double check,” he walked over around the counter to come up behind you. “I have been so lucky to be with the most amazing human being on the entire planter for an entire year, and you deserve the best day ever. So that’s what I plan to give you.” He rested his hands on your hips as you continued cook the dinner you were making for the two of you. “You’re such a nerd,” you said as you leaned back so you could kiss him on the cheek. “But I’m your nerd.”

On the morning of your anniversary you woke up expecting to find your boyfriend still in bed next to you, but instead you woke to the smell of coffee and bacon. You smiled to yourself thinking about the fact that Tom didn’t like coffee as much as you did. I’m British, I don’t drink coffee, I drink tea, a constant quote from your loving boyfriend, but he did promise to make sure it was your day and so coffee it is.

Fighting the urge to stay in your comfy bed, you roll out and find one of Tom shirts discarded on the floor from the night before, and find your way into the kitchen. As soon as you walked in you found Tom hard at work trying to put the final touches on the breakfast he had placed out on the table. You wanted to surprise him with a hug from behind, but being the clumsy person you are, you find yourself knocking into a chair. Startled from the noise, Tom spins around with a plate of toast in his hands, causing some slices to go flying. “Oh my gosh love I’m so sorry!” you sort of shouted out real fast and you ran to pick up the fallen toast. “Honestly, I’m not even mad. I finally get to take you on the best date ever.” He went to hug you after putting the toast back on the counter, “I’m so in love with you, even if you scared me enough to make me drop our breakfast.”

After you remade the toast Tom dropped you both sat down and ate the lovely breakfast that he had made. Surprisingly it was really good, you were always the better cook between the two of you, so the fact that Tom made an effort to cook breakfast really made your heart so full. After that Tom told you to pack a bag with a swim suit and other beach necessities. “Wow Tom, I wonder where we are going,” you smirked as you packed your bag. “Come on love, play along for me would you?” He was perched at the end of the bed. You stepped back and just looked at him for a bit, he looked like a little kid getting ready to go on a Disney vacation, excitement and anticipation basically seeping from his smile that spread from ear to ear. He was almost rocking back and forth waiting patiently for you to finish packing, “What?” looking at you, he leaned forward looking into your bag to see if you were finished, “are you finished yet? Why did you stop?”

“No I’m not done yet, I have to grab a towel, but I was just looking at you.” He smirked, “I know I’m distracting darling, but we got a schedule to keep.” You playfully pushed him over on the bed, and ran to go get a couple towels before he could get back up and grab you. Tom had a bad habit of starting tickle fights after you shoved him or play fought with him.

Not long after you finished packing, you and Tom got into the car and he drove you out to the little beach you had went to on one of your first dates. You spent the rest of the day sitting in the sun, playing in the water, and eating all of the snacks that Tom had packed in the car the night before. It was absolutely perfect, and you couldn’t have imagined a more perfect date.

However, what really made your night was when the sun began to set in the evening. After spending all day in the sun and sand, you finally noticed how empty the beach actually was. In fact, it was only the two of you on the entire little beach. Tom seemed to notice you scanning the empty beach, “I may have asked a couple of favors and gotten a couple of strings pulled, but I basically rented out the beach… If that’s what it’s called.” He got all flustered as he said it, “Oh my god, babe are you serious! That is the sweetest thing ever,” you leaned closer to him, breathing in his smell, trying to savor every single moment of the day.

Sprawled out on the beach blanket, tangled in each other from the extensive amount of cuddling you had done all evening, you both sat with each other watching the sun set over the water. You sighed, nestling your head into his chest, “What is it love, everything okay?”, you looked up to him and smiled, “everything is perfect, I just need you and sunsets love.” He beamed with the biggest smile you have ever seen, “and all I need is you Y/N”.

Adapt… Evolve… Crystalize!!

Okay guys, let me tell you: This song is pure Hannigram inspiration gold!!

Check out the lyrics:

You’ve applied the pressure

To have me crystallized

And you’ve got the faith

That I could bring paradise

I’ll forgive and forget

Before I’m paralyzed

Do I have to keep up the pace

To keep you satisfied

Things have gotten closer to the sun

And I’ve done things in small doses

So don’t think that I’m pushing you away

When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest

You don’t move slow

Taking steps in my direction

The sound resounds, echo

Does it lesson your affection

You say I’m foolish

For pushing this aside

But burn down our home

I won’t leave alive

Glaciers have melted to the sea

I wish the tide would take me over

I’ve been down on my knees

And you just keep on getting closer

Glaciers have melted to the sea

(Things have gotten closer to the sun)

I wish the tide would take me over

(And I’ve done things in small doses)

I’ve been down onto my knees

(So don’t think that I’m pushing you away)

And you just keep on getting closer

(When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest)

Go slow…

*goosebumps* Listening to that song with Hannigram in mind can do things to you, I swear! Okay…

One aspect that you could extract here for inspirational purposes is the theme of influence.

Hannibal did apply pressure, gentle and otherwise, to nudge and push and pull Will towards his becoming.

How do you see the two of them coping with that knowledge after the fall?

What is Hannibal’s view here? Does he see it as his accomplishment to have refined Will?

And Will, is he defiant of the thought of having himself allowed to be influenced by Hannibal? Imagine Will recounting all the ways in which Hannibal’s words and touches and glances have stirred awake something in him that he had tried to keep in check…

Please, take this, lovely fannibals, and run with it as far as you can go!!

Oh, and also, take a look at this edit of Hannibal touching Will:

“Okay, I feel like I have read each of your fics a hundred times and I had this idea swirling around for some time and you seem to be the perfect person to write it (only if you want of course!). What about an Antiope x reader fanfic in which the reader is someone from our time, who had a surfing accident and kind of was washed ashore in Themyscira? Antiope finds her and so on… thank you for even considering!”

((Thank you all for the kind words, they truly do fuel any endeavors published here.))      

Today was meant to be a good day.  Visiting several locations in the Peloponnese, your surfing excursion was relatively mild until this point.  It was a spur of the moment trip, at the behest of a close friend.  In truth, you had hoped to escape the existential dread swirling around your recent birthday. But it seemed that no matter where you went it resurfaced.

You rarely surfed alone, especially during a dark and cloudy morning as this had been.  Yet your mind needed physical distraction and misplaced confidence in your experience with the sport dispelled any trepidation.  However, a riptide pulled you out to sea, dragging your frame precariously on the ocean floor against multiple ragged rocks, tearing a sizable gash in your leg.  Struggling helplessly the water swirled around, pulling you under.   Inevitably, darkness pricks the edges of your vision and the vibrant blue swallows you up.





A high noon sun shines brightly, coaxing you back from the brink of oblivion.  The familiar sensation of sand prickled your exposed flesh. Slowly, you sit up prompting a ring of agony to thunder from the base of your spine to the top of your skull.  The dizzying sensation dulls as you notice the blue sky.  Peering around it became clear that you certainly weren’t on the same beach anymore.  

Hell, you weren’t positive this was even the same island.

So here you are.  

Miles from anywhere discernible.

Without hope of rescue.  

“Could things get any better?”

Despite the alarm ringing in your head panic refused to set in as the amount of blood you undoubtedly lost prevented any frantic rushes of adrenaline.   A massive throbbing in your brain beats behind your eyes forcing you to lay down.  

 The sun is soon eclipsed by a figure, briefly blinded by the sun’s rays you shield your sight.  As they kneel closer they adjust and drink in the sight of an armored woman.  Her gaze was cautious, but not without tenderness.  Strong features framed by a tiara, accentuating the curve of her jaw and shape of her lips.

Even with consciousness threatening to slip she was obviously formidability and beauty personified.  

“Okay, maybe things have gotten a bit better…”


“N-nothing,” Instantly you try to sit up only to have your breath hitch.  A ripple of pain slithers through your body like a bolt of lightning, terminating the halfhearted attempt.  In an instant, the woman is at your side, steadying your battered frame with capable hands.

“Stop.  You are in no danger.”  

“What?  Who are you?”

“Never mind that now. Here,” gently she reached around your waist and gathered you in her arms, effortlessly lifting you to your feet. The distinct aroma of warm leather and eucalyptus fills your lungs.  Turning your eyes to her neck the culprit found you sigh despondently.

So, she’s strong and smells amazing that hardly seems fair.

Properly on your own two legs the woman lets you go.  “It appears your wounds are minor, but numerous…can you walk?”  Nodding slightly, she turns while signaling you to follow.   Shaking off the remaining delirium you step in time with her own gait.  Even within the liminal space between sleep and dream playing with your senses, the armor-clad woman before you radiated warmth.  Upon closer inspection, a scar carved into her shoulder stands out. Without much thought, you lean out and gingerly touch it.  Taking note of your hand she pauses.

“I’m sorry it feels…awkward not saying thank you.  For helping me, that is.”

With a slight nod in your direction she echoes your faint smile and continues on her march.





A blur of unfamiliar sights, sounds and one dip in a bio-luminescent pond later bled into days, weeks, and  eventually months until a year passes with barely your acknowledgement.  Themyscira ticks off just about every box in the quality utopia checklist: Cascading waterfalls. A lush, tropical landscape.  But what centered you was Antiope.  Her scar ever visible when you slept at night or remembered the world now left to time.  Adjusting to life here was a challenge, but felt less so with her near.

To say it had all been a lot to absorb would tarnish the experience.  But it all paled when compared to her.  The dread that bloomed in your heart swiftly mutated, and soon any sharp point was replaced with her steadfast manner and commanding bearing.  Antiope was your guide in this new place, and while it felt one sided it was all you could do but foster tender feelings towards her.  

The anniversary of your arrival came, and it only felt befitting to re-visit the ocean that brought you here, the life now seemingly gone left a bitter taste. The faint crunch of sand tread underneath boot draws near.   Turning slightly Antiope comes into view.  


Nodding she exhales and turns to face the sea while mouthing the words, “Beautiful.”

The splattering of blue and gold held suddenly little interest.  Eyes still transfixed on her form, bathed in the dying light the scene was as if painted and framed on some museum’s wall. At times looking at her gave the impression of seeing a masterpiece with glass blocking any interaction.  It would not come as a surprise if you were standing in the middle of crowd, writing to be stirred from the revere of this place.  

Of this moment.  

Of her.

 Antiope catches your faraway look.  A flutter jumps in your stomach as you forcefully pull your gaze away.

“Does something trouble you?”

“Just my old life…I don’t miss it, but feel as if I should.”

“It’s not impossible to take you back.  But, doing so would be quite sorrowful.”


“When I stumbled upon you at this beach…your spirit seemed to be lost.  Which was a pity.  Once I met your gaze there was a passion there, refusing to die.  I think the day you came was after reckless behavior.”

Several moments pass before Antiope looks at you.  To her shock silent tears were streaming down your cheeks, tainting the grin playing at your lips.  Concerned she cups your face with each hand, allowing her thumbs to wipe away the pain bubbling forth.

“Apologies, I did not mean to-”

No, no.”  Sniffling you grab her wrists and inhale an unsteady breath.  “You are right.”

Attempting to look down Antiope’s grasp wouldn’t let you.  Opening your, eyes her expression is worried, bothered by the trepidation you were in. But you smile and continue.

“You are right about me. I was so numb and…tired of pretending. I wanted a reason to…to keep going. That accident—you helped me.  I don’t know how to begin thanking you for it.”

“My dear,” her breath is perceptible on your skin, the salt soaked tears enhancing the sensation.  Heart pounding in your chest you close the gap, pressing your lips to hers in one desperate moment.  Any worry dissolves in her embrace, as she tentatively returns the action, pulling you impossibly close to her frame.  You did not want to hear it.  How your own strength, passion, ebbed the sea of grief that once circled your psyche.  No matter the interpretation Antiope was your catalyst, whether she believed this or not was inconsequential.

  But you would not have her voice it, ever.  

How could you express that the love you experienced until her felt like paper notes, precious but temporary, fragile? What she offered was tangible, concrete, real.  

You were beyond the glass.  

She was here, with you.

As the kiss breaks the sky glows with the faintness of starlight.  You both gaze at the sight, paying no mind to anything but each other.

Who's your favorite character in Sense8?

That’s super duper hard. Like I literally love each and every one of the main characters. Each are relatable in their own ways and they have all been developed so well. 

I think I’d have to go with Bak Sun though. First of all, Bae Doona, the actress is bomb. She’s so cool and if you haven’t seen Cloud Atlas, you should. It’s a great movie. 

But related to Sun there are so many reasons for me to like her. 

(1) She’s Asian and as an Asian I feel drawn to her and like to see the representation. 
(2) She has overcome so much. She has been betrayed by her own brother and lost her mother and father.
(3) She always wants to solve her own problems, but has evolved as a character. She realizes that having help isn’t a bad thing and has gotten closer with her cluster (similar to Wolfgang).
(4) She’s emotional distant, due to her personality and Asian culture. I really like that Sense8 takes culture into account and portrays their characters without making them a stereotype.
(5) She’s a badass and can hold her own. She’s got crazy martial art skills and can take a punch. She is resilient, strong, and such a good role model in my opinion.
(6) She’s an animal lover and so good with them. Dogs know when someone is a good person and Sun is obviously a good person.
(7) Even though she’s been through so much, she still stands by her convictions and is a good person. She doesn’t stoop to the level of becoming a murderer even when she’s trying to be killed. She cares for her friends in the prison and appreciates when someone has helped her.
(8) She’s obviously comfortable with her body. Like she kicked ass in barely any clothes for 90% of the time in season 2!
(9) She’s the best feminist ever. She doesn’t take shit from any man and has been shaped to be a powerful, yet kind woman at the same time.
(10) She’s supportive of her cluster even though she may seem distant. Sometimes you just need to be present to be able to help someone. You don’t always need to use words to help people.

There’s so many other reasons, but I thought ten was a good amount.

Do you have a fic rec for fics that will make you cry?

Oh no Anon. Are you really sure you want to go on this side? this VERY PAINFUL side? Are you telling me you love the pain?

(Me too)  Okay, lets go :


(warning, read the tags before, some of those are really sad/painful/with a main character death)(with no happy endings mostly) (Fair warning bis, when I say “no happy end, I mean “it’s not a happy end for Harry & Louis”, okay?)

(also those are my fav, so not only Larry) (and they make ME cry, but maybe not you?)

- it’s part of me, apart from me : Louis leaves and Harry forgets. (1.7k, Larry, no happy end)

- take my hand (take my whole life too)  : “What would you do,” Louis begins, knowing that this will only hurt him more, “If this was your last day on earth?”Harry thinks for a bit, brow furrowed in concentration, and then he says sort of cheekily, “Go skydiving. See my family, see my friends.” “What else, Harry?” (9k, Larry, no happy end)

- we are not alone in the dark with our demons : It’s a Wednesday when Nick leaves. One too many questions about his feelings for Harry Styles, one too many jokes, one too many laughs. He leaves because he can’t anymore, can’t pretend that’s all it is: a joke. He can’t play along anymore, so he walks out of the studio and gets in his car and drives, the destination not seeming important in this moment. The last person he would expect to find him is Louis. (32k, Tomlinshaw, happy end)

- like a timebomb ticking : Louis loses everything. Harry’s still there. (31k, canon Larry, happy end)

- when i turn jet black and you show off your light, i live to let you shine      : Zayn paints and dates Liam, Harry sings and marries Louis, Harry leaves on tour and Louis comes to Zayn for comfort. Zayn finds a project to keep him occupied, but when old wounds are opened their friendship begins to look a lot more like love.OR Louis is the sky. Or maybe it’s Harry. Someone is the sky, at any rate. (10k, Zouis, idk if the end is happy or not tbh. kind of happy?)

- hoping this cold blue water scrubs me clean and spits me out again  (AKA THE BRAIN CANCER FIC) : “Stay,” Harry whispers desperately, pressing his lips to Louis’ temple like he can somehow ease the pain that’s blooming there, but he can’t make the pain stop and no matter how hard he tries he can’t make Louis stay. (17k, canon Larry, no happy end)

- up the long delirious burning blue  : harry is a swimmer & louis is the writer who somehow manages to make him come up for air. (6.6k, Larry, no happy end)

- 99 Days Without You  : 99 days without the one you love seems like an eternity. (11k, Larry, no happy end)
