AU where Niall, a somewhat famous golfer that got a bit more famous for his pretty face, ends up having to work with influencer/model Zayn for a campaign and keeps making fun of influencers and being annoyed with it and Zayn h a t e s how Niall makes fun of his work (“Listen I just don’t see how you van consider taking a picture of your food and tagging the restaurant for doing ‘work’ y'know?” “Oh yeah no I get you because hitting a ball and then taking a silly little car to go to it because you’re too lazy to walk, THAT’s the real hard work right there”) and they bicker and fight until ofc they hook up and fall in love

the worst thing about trying to decide to read a fic:

-horrible writing.

-the summary is good but the story is written in a different language or is badly written.

-opening it to find no spaces between the paragraphs.

-both your otp and notp is tagged and you have no clue if you want to take a risk or not.

-tagged major character death and you start sweating.

-hasn’t been updated in 80 years but the summary is on point and their the best fucking writer ever.

-you start reading only to find that the person updates every ten years and you just happened to catch them on a day they finally updated.

-you find a writer and check them out, only to find out they mostly write about your notp - and of course they always update, have perfect writing and have stories that are epic.

-stories with so many fucking tags, you just shake your head and move on.

-the “i suck at summaries please check it out still” and you just, pause because it has your otp and you debate whether or not to take the risk.

-you find a pairing you never considered before and think holy shit, that could be hot and spend all day hunting through the tag.

-you ship a pairing so fucking hard, only to find like two fics and you start weeping.

-when you find a perfect story only to check the tags and see some weird shit that disgusts you and you scream why.

-a fic with good writing and summary but it’s so short or is only fan-art.

-a crossover fic where you have both of your fandoms but don’t have both of otps, just one.

-one shots that are so good you wish they were longer.

-when your notp is tagged but it’s labeled as a past relationship or says your otp is endgame, and you have to go through the notp’s awkward breakup in order for your otp to happen.

-when someone doesn’t tag properly and a plot twist hits you and you want to cry.

-you finally find a great fic that has been updated and the last update says writes block, personal issues- can’t do this, asks for co-writer, discontinues it or says lol i hate how this is turning out, deleting.

-when a writer as twenty stories to update and you cry because you like all of them and you have to wait.

-when you remember a story from like five years ago and you search for it, only to find it’s been deleted or can’t seem to find it anywhere.

-when a writer gives you an update schedule and you’re excited because they follow it but then they start missing it and you just…

-when a writer deletes a story and rewrites the same story but you like the original better.

-when your reading a story about a rare pairing that interests and your otp hate each other or just friends and it’s just so weird to read.

-when one half of your otp is in another relationship and the other half shows up with someone else and then you remember, right i’m not reading a story about my otp so i can’t get mad.

-when your otp is popular but it’s not as popular as another ship in the fandom and you hate how the other ship as so much more stories than your ship.

-when you try to read an ot3 relationship because it has two characters you love but the other character is usually from your notp and you hate when your notp share moments.

-when you beg an author (usually one where they aren’t in the fandom really) to write more stories about your otp and they say maybe and it never happens.

-when the writer literally shits on your favorite character and you can’t go through it anymore.

-when your otp isn’t the main pairing and you don’t really care about the other pairings in the story and skip to your otp parts.

-when a story has a million words and it’s so good and you know that you will spend all day and night reading it until your eyes hurt.

-when a story have 200 parts to it and you lose all hope after a while because the story is dragging.

-when your otp is going through something and so many stories are filled with angst, fluff and hurt that it makes you cry because yup, i need to read about my pain for my otp.

-when the writer refuses to write the smut you been waiting for and your otp is stuck in unresolved tension mode forever.

-when the writer unexpected changes the story’s events and you are disappointed by the direction.

-when you find a great au and the characters are so out of character… it makes you sad.

-when you open a fic only to find you hate the point of view and you scream.

-when you request a prompt and the author writes it but you are disappointed and just smile through the pain.

-when you have such a good idea in your head and you try to write it but it’s so bad that you delete it and cry, hoping someone else writes the brilliant idea that you had.

-when you don’t ship something anymore but see a great plot and you click the story and take a deep breath - because shit is about to go down.

-when you reading a great story but get distracted and skip some parts, shit goes down in between and then you think fuck, and have to start over.

-when it’s tagged “slow burn” and you say i can do this and it’s chapter 30 and my ship still hate each other like what.

-when the author says this is their first time writing smut and you think on god they better do this right - only to find out they writing eight pages on your otp making love. like yes.

-when the smut is so rushed or improper you feel cheated and log off because done. like so done.

-when it’s tagged “everyone lives” and your eyes water because that’s all you ever wanted in life.

-when the author leaves a cliffhanger and says in the author’s note “lol sorry about the cliffhanger, i’ll update soon”. you ain’t sorry, stop lying.

-when you see that the story is complete and do a happy dance, only to realize that it ended badly or the sequel/series hasn’t been updated.

Man, I was unprepared, I’ve never met a band












anonymous asked:

I seem a post from a while back where you called zayn a group mom by scolding the others and being protective and I can see it, but can you think of any times where he particular showed it or do you have a masterpost??

I don’t think I did, but have a mini-masterpost:

Zayn sticking up for Niall and telling him he doesn’t have to do something during an interview.


Telling Niall he can spit out his vegemite after he tastes it for the first time and finds it really not to his liking.

Taking Liam to task for not coming up with genuine compliments about Niall during an interview section.

Feeding Niall against the rules during 1D Day because Niall is always hungry and it was a very long day.

Worrying about Louis falling off the stage and trying to corral him.

Fixing Louis’ sleeves for him during one of the hotter concerts.

Tying shoes.

Being careful about water safety.

Protecting Liam when the jokes get a little too rough.

And again.

Watching out for Liam after he broke his arm.

And again when Liam was under the weather.

Saving Harry from becoming a shish kabob.

Standing up for Harry’s reputation during an interview.

And again.

Making sure Harry didn’t poison himself.

You know what? I actually just spoke to Niall a couple of days ago. The truth of it is, it’s not even like that to be honest, I wish it was a bit more like that. We just really support each other. And I even spoke to him the other day, I was saying to him I’m really proud of how well his music is doing. It’s almost like an older brother watching him. And it was cool to have that conversation with him. So yeah, we support each other. There’s no real competition, I don’t think.
  • Liam: If you bite it and you die, it’s poisonous. If it bites you and you die, it’s venomous.
  • Niall: What if it bites me and it dies.
  • Liam: That means you’re poisonous. Jesus Christ, learn to read!
  • Niall: What if it bites itself and I die.
  • Zayn: It’s voodoo.
  • Niall: What if it bites me and someone else dies?
  • Liam: That’s correlation, not causation.
  • Niall: What if we bite each other and neither of us die?
  • Harry: That’s kinky.
  • Louis: Oh my god.
