In Paris she found Magnus, who was living in a garret apartment and painting, an occupation for which he had no aptitude whatsoever. He let her sleep on a mattress by the window, and in the night, when she woke up screaming for Will, he came and put his arms around her, smelling of turpentine.
“The first one is always the hardest,” he said.
“The first?”
“The first one you love who dies,” he said. “It gets easier, after.

FAVORITE HL FICS - THESE INCONVENIENT FIREWORKS (190k) by mdasch & everydayslike

Harry doesn’t get it. He wears his heart on his sleeve because he hasn’t any idea what the world is really like. Things don’t always happen for a reason. Sometimes life is mean and pointless and people hurt you just because they can. Sometimes you fall in love with a person or a fantasy of the person you’re going to be someday, and all it ever does for you is make you into something you hate, brittle bones and stone walls.

He’s pulled out of his thoughts by the motion out of the corner of his eye of Harry lifting up his phone. Louis gets a hand in front of his face just before he hears the fake shutter sound of the camera going off. “Missed me,” he says, peeking out from behind his fingers.

“I don’t get why you won’t let me take your picture,” Harry says, pouting a bit, and Louis just laughs.

“Well, we can’t have you finding out I’m a vampire, can we?” he says, patting Harry’s thigh consolingly. He turns back to the film, and tries not to worry about what Harry might see in his eyes if he ever managed to catch him off-guard.

Thread with drnickrush
After colonel Young leaves him behind on an alien planet, doctor Nicholas Rush seeks shelter and a possible means to escape in an abandoned alien ship. What he does not expect to find, is a strange device that summons a small hologram of a young girl, a princess whom he remembers from the old fairy tales his mother once read to him.

anonymous asked:

Can you make a fic rec of all your favorite h&l fics please

wow this is a tall order, how about i tell you 10 fics i reread a lot? (in no particular order)

  1. your name is tattoed on my heart: louis is ready to find the love of his life, but first he has to stop falling for the punk rocker next door. by mcpofife
  2. pep talk turned into a pep rally: two orgies on the south american leg of the wwa tour, one louis-centric and one zayn-centric.
  3. you are the blood: a seventh-year hogwarts au in which niall gets all the girls, liam goes on a journey of self-discovery, zayn falls in love, harry wants something more, and louis tries to figure out once and for all why he, a muggleborn, was sorted into slytherin.
  4. a promise lives within you now: a lord of the rings-inspired middle earth au. louis is an elven prince, next in line to become king of mirkwood, and harry is the orphaned human boy who grows up alongside him. 2-4 all by sarcaticfluentry 
  5. be my little good luck charm: in which harry is a promising amateur golfer, and louis is a sky sports anchor. by 100percentsassy 
  6. my head’s underwater (but i’m breathing fine): harry’s a merman, louis is a prince. sometimes happiness can be found at the bottom of the sea. by infinitelymint 
  7. rather this than live without you: harry decides to give it all up. louis refuses to be left behind. by mediaville
  8. the lives in which i’ve loved you: in all his lives, louis has only three wishes: one, that harry will love him back, two, that they will get to grow old together, and three, that they die at the same time so they never have to know a minute without each other. by thelonelycoast 
  9. through the darkest of your days: harry thinks he might not really know what okay is, but louis is warm next to him, solid and constant and questioning. he’s all wide eyes and nerves and vulnerability. and this feels alright, this might be some sort of okay, harry thinks. by robpatFF
  10. don’t be told it can’t be doneharry gets scared a lot and louis gets angry a lot and squirrels are better than humans. by brokenbravery 


He’s worried about the dentist, and he’s worried about heartache, and he’s worried about his rent, and no one ever told him that the worries of childhood wouldn’t get replaced by the worries of adolescence and adulthood. They just accumulated, and sometimes the weight of being every version of himself at once is too much.

Sho’N’Tell is an alternative to tumblr, I started it as I didnt feel a lot of people needs including some of my own were being met by tumblr, I have a lot of ideas on where I want the site to go, I want people to be able to the most out of the site and not feel like there are things that are missing from it. Its currently in alpha so most of the core is there but there is still a lot I want to add to it, tonnes and tonnes of features that will get added to make it stand out and be unique and also help its users as much as possible.
it can be used to post art, writing, journal entries, tutorials, news, memes, other randomness. some of its current featrues are:
