Here’s my list of fics that I’ve either read over and over because they’re that damn good or they’re WIPs that are sure to join that list in the near future. And instead of a summary I’ve provided a song (or in some cases a soundtrack) that I feel captures the tone of the fic. Happy reading!
An immense thank you to all the writers on this list for sharing your characters and stories with me and all the other fortunate readers in the 1DFF community. Your words help make the days shine a little brighter. And to all the writers who I now call friends, thank you. I am truly blessed. A special shout out to Kath @bioluminescentwriting for organizing 1DAAW, you are one amazing lady.
It was as though folk music had got together with MGMT and given birth to a prodigy child, as fun but earthy tunes engulfed The Basement in the pre-entertainment… entertainment that lead up to Alisa Fedele’s final show last night. TIN SPARROW, a Sydney based band, whet the appetites of the full house with a ‘put-your-drink-down-and-start-drooling’ performance. Each song executed by this folk-poppy foursome, transported the audience into a world of involuntarily bopping and swaying - a side-effect of losing yourself in the music. The artists’ welcoming energy made you feel as though you were right there on the stage with them, separated only by their mastery of the array of instruments every so often being introduced to the mix. The final ingredient was their 'it’s all about the love and the fun’ attitude, which filled the effortless acapella and harmonies with that extra special soul, which of course, good music is all about.
Life is as hectic as possible. My days are composed of leaving the house early and coming home late. It’s exhausting but maybe I just need time to get used to it. I’ve been riding the train almost everyday now to get to the office. The trip is quite long so I always put my earphones on and drift off to another world. On times like these, I like staring out the window while listening to music that calms me down in a world where life is so fast-paced.
As I couldn’t single my mixtape down I’ve just added all the music from my playlist I made at the start of march. I’m completely in love with this playlist. Some very new music and unknown artist’s in there which are 100% worth a listen too. This hole playlist will be available to listen to on my blog very soon!
Can you give me a list of your favorite songs please? I need some music to listen to and your music taste is the best!! LOVE U BEAN

writing about Makorra? Here are some songs to get you inspired:
(basically, I’ve heard a lot about people having trouble writing for this ship at the moment, so I’ve decided to help out. I don’t write fanfiction, but I can definitely help get you in the mood to do it! You’re all great writers; keep it up.)
Put my thoughts together as I wrote you this letter in my room
On a crumpled piece of paper there were 3 words addressed to you
It’s alright, it’s alright now don’t panic too soon
Cause my love, well, all my love is there for you
For you, it’s all for you
It’s all for you
Now the blood-red sky is reflecting like last nights rain
And I’m starting to think that there’s not enough ink on the page
And I hope, I hope that you, you know the truth
That my time, my effort, my soul it’s all for you
It’s all for you
And I know sometimes I seem sad,
blue and grey
But I don’t think this time for you has been a waste
Cause it was all for you
