    Summary

    John Watson thought this was it for him after he returned from Afghanistan -- runny noses and the tedium of working a job at a private practice. Aimless and bitter, he never thought he would find his purpose again. Enter Sherlock, a little boy desperately needing rescue from the wreckage of his life, and John gets more than he ever thought possible...a family.

    He was such a serious child, but he was incredibly smart. He saw things most people would find inconsequential and pieced them together to form a whole picture as easy as breathing. John didn’t know anyone that could do anything like that. All the more reason why it was a crime what had been done to him. How could anyone hurt a child as helpless and as innocent as he? 

    Never again...

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Wonderful action packed fic, with a scorching dose of sex and feelings.
    Absoluty loved it. Clint's voice is spot on and this Phil is my favourite kind, uber competent, suave and utterly badass.

    Summary

    "So his face sells records, is what you’re saying," she says, and yeah, he’s been talking about the jerkwad for most of his lunch break, but that’s no reason for her to get that glint in her eye. “You must think it’s a pretty marketable face, if it can make someone’s debut album go triple-platinum in the span of two months.”

    Summary

    Harry blinks at him a few times and opens his mouth before closing it abruptly. Finally, “You think I’m cute?”

    Louis lifts his hand and makes a so-so gesture before laughing at the appalled expression on Harry’s face. “Yes, I do. Not as cute as the kitten I brought in, but definitely halfway there.”

    “I don’t know whether to feel insulted or flattered,” Harry eventually says making Louis grin and he’s pretty sure that his cheekbones should be aching from how wide his smile is.

    “Feel flattered Harold, always feel flattered,” Louis advises before bringing his knees down and crossing his legs instead.

    Louis finds a three legged kitten on the street and takes it to the animal shelter. He doesn't expect to find a Harry Styles as well but he goes along with it anyways.

    Summary

    From this wonderful prompt:

    A high school AU wherein the five boys live in the suburbs of Anaheim, California, and spend a lot of time desperate to get a car. They make do though with bikes, skateboards, and the very rare lift from their parents. They often go exploring and smoke a lot of weed. They live close to the beach and not too far from Disneyland, which they've figured out a way to sneak into when it's closed (maybe one of them works there and is able to get them inside? Oh man, I can totally see Harry, Niall, or Liam working some small job at Disneyland. Though Liam would never go for that kind of rebelliousness). Harry and Louis should meet in the fic, possibly because Harry moves into the neighborhood? Louis and Niall should both play soccer in school, although whether or not they/their team is any good I'll leave up to you. I also don't know what would be more fun, if they were all rich suburbanites or came from working class families. Maybe some mix of the two. So that's yours as well!

    Maybe he feels brave, the champagne bubbling in his stomach and the eight ball of coke burning a hole in his pocket and Louis staring up at him with a mix of hatred and reverence in his eyes, pink mouth agape.

    Summary


    Harry has been in love with Louis Tomlinson for four years, five months, and thirteen days.

    Harry had fallen in love with Louis Tomlinson like how he’d seen in movies, and how he’d read in all the books he’d stolen from Gemma, headfirst and shameless.

    The only problem was, that in films and books, love was always either returned instantly, or else it took time for unrequited love to lose the first two letters, and since the first option was obviously not true, Harry decided he would wait for the second to become reality.
     
    And so Harry waited, three years, eight months, and four days, before his heart had been broken by a gentle rejection and a misplaced blowjob, before Louis and Gemma had packed up and gone to Manchester for university.

    (Harry is a hopelessly romantic omega and Louis is his sister's best friend)

    Summary

    Harry looks up from his tea, and his insides twist up a bit, because Louis Tomlinson, Literal Actual Babe of the RSC, is standing there looking disgruntled in sweatpants and a beanie. The urge to make the obvious joke is stronger than his panic-induced nausea. He fixes a wobbly smile on his face and says, “Don’t worry, Louis, the party don’t start till you walk in.”

    (Or West End AU in which Louis is a former Royal Shakespeare Company actor looking for his way back to the top, Harry is an actor best known for his work in unknown bits of experimental theatre and being the darling of London's new age theatre scene, and Simon Cowell is the renowned director who brings the two of them together.

    Also featuring Assistant Director!Zayn, Famous TV Actor!Niall, and Stage Manager!Liam)

    liam lives for saturdays. if he had to pick his favourite day to play a match, it would be saturday, because the whole crowd pile into old trafford to kick off their weekend; older people, worldly wise, their faces lined with years of joy and heartache over the beautiful game, and young fans, some with their own children, their eyes shining with optimism and smiles filled with youth. liam watches as they flow effortlessly together, chanting we’ll never die as though they were born with the lyrics on their tongue, their blood as red as the shirts on their backs. banners are hung across the stands, names and faces of the boys, his boys, displayed proudly for all to see.
