    I'm such a sucker for non-linear, episodic story telling, and for different starting points, but all roads lead to the same destination au - this combines both and makes me very happy indeed

    Summary

    When Harry Styles and Zayn Malik don’t make the cut the first time they audition for X-Factor, they decide to stay in London as motivation to try again the following year, and get jobs in a cafe across the street from BBC Broadcasting House. A cafe where Radio 1 DJ, Nick Grimshaw, finds himself one cold, dark evening in need of a coffee and a disarming smile.

    All roads lead to this...
    Love this a lot. Especially enough years later that the origin story matters less and less, so it may as well have happened just like this.

    Summary

    when I realized I loved you
    it was not romantic
    not flush with pink roses & wine
    but rather normal
    it was a quiet realization
    like checking the weather I was currently standing in
    "huh, it's a bit warmer
    than I would have guessed"

    Sheffield to London in less than two hours is no small feat.

    Everything's backwards, but they get there in the end. Perfect, spare, episodic story telling.

    Love this as much for its beautifully specific, vibrant London-ness as anything else. The entire series feels like a love letter to the city.
