goal as a fanfic writer: actually write the fic instead of just talking about it

anyone who argues that one sided pining is better than mutual pining is a FOOL. i want fics that are all or nothing babey they’re both stupid and in love and unable to see that the other is just as smitten as them. that’s where the good stuff is.

Sometimes, Natsu would shout “Incoming!” and jump into some poor guy’s back. He got dared to try it on Lucy once, just for kicks. Lucy budged a couple inches max, then simply shifted a bit and carried him all the way to the classroom. It was a lesson to all that a) you should never underestimate cheerleaders, and b) there’s a reason Lucy Heartfilia got along so well with Natsu Dragneel.
Thanks for the ask, anon! <3

fic title: for neither never nor ever
pairing: Louis Tomlinson/Harry Styles
rating: NC-17
word count: ~29.000
summary: Then Harry looked down. A newspaper was on the steps in front of him, looking new, like it had only just gotten delivered but no one had bothered to carry it inside yet. That, in itself, wasn't unusual. The unusual thing was the headline, Chernobyl - Half a Year Later, and the date in the corner. 5th November 1986. He looked up to stare at the girl in the doorway one last time, before he did the only logical thing his body knew how to do in this situation. He bolted.
or, the one where Harry travels through time and has to come to terms with losing everything he's ever known. Louis might be the only thing that feels real.

my new favourite thing is out-of-context pictures of tags on ao3 that shouldn’t be together put side by side

sobs whatever you're cooking....i'm scared
here, have an excerpt, because it's funny:
Maybe if Dean just—got on top of it, it'd be fine. Just head it off before Sam can say or do anything. Just say hey, listen, Cas says I'm severely lacking in heterosexuality, and maybe he's right, but I really don't wanna talk about it ever, so can we leave it at that and can you be normal about it? Or hey, remember when I always used to say I don't swing that way? Well, it turns out I tossed the whole bat aside and Cas caught it. Or, hey, we're all whores, aren't we, deep down? Yeah, well, turns out I'm a whore for Cas. And maybe dudes are hot sometimes, whatever.
Dean snorts out loud at that one. So, okay, maybe dudes are, but he'd never tell Sam that.
"What's funny?" Sam asks, not looking up from his phone.
"I almost told you I think dudes are hot," Dean replies, snorting again, then he freezes.
Oh, come on.
