    Summary

    It was the 17th July 2017 - on that they all agreed. They were scattered around the globe all minding their own business or more precisely their solo careers with the band being just a label they cannot shake off and a distant memory though it wasn't that long ago.
    Next time they open their eyes it is the 17th July 2010 - the first day of the seventh season of X Factor UK's Boot Camp. All of them - yes, all five of them - wake up in the Wembley Arena in London before the judges arrived. When nothing works and they are stuck seven years in the past where they are just Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zain (this time with an I instead of Y), teenagers with big dreams, they have to decide what track will they take this time.
    Is One Direction fated to exist or are the boys going to pursuit solo careers now instead? Can they fix past mistakes or will everything fall apart? What is the key to success and fame? Can they do it again?
    A story of second chances, new paths and five boys who were thrown together seven years ago, but learned to work together to achieve their goals.

    Summary

    “don’t worry.” harry says, and louis can hear his voice, ragged in the back and rough like it gets when he’s trying to stay strong for the world. “i’ll tell you all about the stars when i see you next.”

    (astronaut!au, inspired by the president’s speech had the apollo eleven mission failed, also includes themes from the apollo thirteen mission)

    Summary

    Zayn’s no fool. He knows what he looks like generally—smudgy lashes, soft lips, harsh cheekbones that belie his stupid laugh. He knows what he looks like now, cigarette wedged in his mouth like his nose isn’t bleeding, like his lip and knuckles aren’t split. He knows what it means when someone stares at him like this kid is.

    Summary

    Thankfully Simon stands up, interrupting their conversation.
    “Well that’s a wrap everyone, now it’s time for bootcamp and that’s when it really begins. Now, wipe up your drool Grimshaw and let’s go home, okay?”
    “I was not drooling!” Nick tries again, turning to Cheryl for support but Cheryl just laughs, shaking her head as she puts a well-manicured hand on Nick’s shoulder.
    “It’s okay honey, we all get those moments don’t we?”
    The thing is that Nick doesn’t. He doesn’t get like this, hasn’t in years and he feels oddly guilty about it, that this contestant, this... Louis managed to affect him so much with just his voice.

     

    Nick is a judge. Louis is a contestant. And this journey is about more than just music and the X Factor.

    Summary

    Harry is sitting there, so fucking casual, and Louis realizes in a split second he was not ready. When Harry walked out in Detroit and never looked back, he was a boy verging on a man, still only twenty years old, but there's a man in his place now. Hard and resolute, yes, but still, for the first time in a long time, Louis can kind of see the old Harry in him. The soft, directness of his gaze, the hesitant smile he gives to Lou, the way he wrings his ridiculously large hands in his lap.

    He's a little bit the eager sixteen year old puppy dog again, his innocence and sweetness resurrected miraculously, and Louis freezes in place. He was prepared to face the asshole Harry. He was prepared to meet a whole new Harry.

    Louis is not prepared to meet one of the old incarnations of Harry, and it absolutely tears him up.

    Or the fic where Harry spirals out of control, the band breaks up, and then he shows back up, five years later.

    Summary

    A coffee shop AU wherein pregnant Ella moves in with her quirky great-aunt and takes it on herself to create an arts scene in her new town, starting with the little coffee shop where a directionless George Shelley works. Started during XF2012 and unfortunately un-worked-on since around XF2013, so here it is as a WIP amnesty.

    Summary

    An old fanmix for the longform, unfinished, unpublished-on-AO3 story 'Mind Bowing to Heartbeat' by rilla, in the X Factor UK 2010 fandom.

    Enjoy it now in the context of any ship you have where your people just cannot get it together like decent humans, instead persisting as incompetently, ruinously bad for each other. And yet so OTP... You know the type!!

    (At least 30% of the songs in here are quite simply about blowjobs.)
