Since Louis and his team are rolling out promo, naturally my mind goes immediately to The Breakfast show.
For starters, how do they greet one another? Hug? Hand shake? Back slaps? Please. You know they would both pull the most ridiculous stupid faces for the photos that will force me to lay down. I’m not even ready for the thought of live video. The giggles. Voice inflection. Raised eye brows. Pursed lips. Head nods. Choked laughter. Eye rolls. Small smiles.
This is not even about tomlinshaw as a fantasy ship. It’s about my love for Louis and Nick as individuals and how they communicate and use their humor, sarcasm, self deprecation, charm, voices and ENTIRE FACES during interviews. Like. It’s too much. So much.
In the past, Louis has gone soft during Breakfast interviews, deferring to Nick and the group. During the X Factor their brief exchange was cute and friendly. But this would be a fucking solo interview. With the goal of entertaining and leaving an impression. Their actual personalities meshing. One on one. Documented. Oh Jesus. It could go so many ways.
I’m going to die if it doesn’t happen, but I’ll also die if it does. Of anticipation and happiness mostly.
“Nick’s funny when he’s not being a knob, and has good taste in music and Louis really likes his hands. Not to mention that he’s tall, tall enough to have made Louis spend a minute or two imagining what it would be like to have Nick pin him to a flat surface and snog him senseless. The only thing keeping him from a full grown crush at this point is sheer will and the threat of humiliation.
So, Nick’s a dickhead but unfortunately Louis is kind of into that.”
Nick’s never been in a relationship like this, all whirlwind but somehow one that still feels right. That’s how it’s supposed to feel, isn’t it? Like everything’s slotting carefully into place, like Louis is just meant to be here. He wants to hold onto this feeling and never, ever let go.
or, nick and louis get married and everything’s good until it isn’t.
Amber help! I asked Alice a Tomlinshaw rec for a beginner but 1 i can't find the post anymore nor remember the title 2 i need more optionssss! Please help me, rec me some Tomlinshaw please and thank you
YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PERSON.
Start with Promise Not To Stop When I Say When. It’s a stylinshaw, but it introduced me to the Nick/Louis dynamic and got me hooked, so if you haven’t yet, please read that first.
Now, on to Tomlinshaw for beginners.
I recommend everything K has written, but start with lost my senses, I’m defenceless - it’s my favourite. Then read her other works. She writes Tomlinshaw perfectly without too much angst, it’s exactly what you need.
The full details of the fest can be found on Archive of Our Own where all the fanworks will post. The fest welcomes fic, art, Nixtapes (fanmixes), reclists, podfic, vids, graphics and so on. However, the prompting post is designed primarily as a jumping off point for people creating art (including graphics, mood boards, vids and other media) or fic.
You should include the prompt (which can be a quote, lyric, scenario etc.) the preferred pairing(s) or characters, any optional extras which might be relevant and your tumblr name and AO3 name if you wish. This fest is open to all characters and pairings (and threesomes/moresomes), provided Nick or the Nick related pairing is the focus. AU prompts are welcome. There are no content or rating restrictions so feel free to prompt in any and all genres from dark horror to fluffy romance or crack.
I will be collecting the prompts and updating this google documentevery couple of days. I have included a couple of example prompts of my own to get the ball rolling.
Prompt as many times as you like. You may prompt anonymously if you wish but there is absolutely no obligation to do so.
Please help me promote this fest by sharing this post widely.
