Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson / Explicit / 50k 

The Styles-Twist holiday in the Catskills is supposed to be just that: a family holiday. A last hurrah before Harry relocates to The States for uni. Instead, it quickly devolves into a honeymoon for his parents, leaving Harry and Gemma to fend for themselves.

Harry gets in over his head in an attempt to impress him, but with Gemma egging him on and a ticking clock, how could he not at least try?

Or, the Dirty Dancing AU no one asked for.

7 Travel Tips for Road Tripping Alone

Summer is FINALLY here, which means it’s time to put that dreamy, wanderlust Pinterest board to use and start that solo summer road trip you keep talking about with your friends. You see, telling everyone you’re hitting the road unaccompanied is simple, but when it comes to successfully executing said road trip? Now that’s where it gets dicey. I’m a huge fan of spontaneously taking off on a whim the moment the travel bug bites.
