ao3 needs donations to keep their software up to date, free, and functioning.
personally, ao3 is one of the best platforms for fan fics i’ve seen. it’s clean, organized, and easy to navigate, and they host tons of fandoms and fics. even if you can only give a little that’d go a long way if a lot of you take the time to donate.
let’s keep a really good thing going for everyone that enjoys the talents of so many great writers and for the writers that have a great place to share their work.

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE HOTEL?!??
AU : The X factor’s judge Louis Tomlinson, 22, dating contestant Harry Styles, 18.
But like, 22 year old Louis is a former teen popstar that has sold millions of records, charmed teens across the world, and following the years of his life where he sold out stadiums and arenas around the globe, has been headhunted by Simon Cowell to be a judge on the latest season of The X-Factor UK. Enter Harry. An eighteen year old heartthrob that immediately impresses all the judges and the home viewers. Louis knows he is in the presence of someone special. Someone that can just pick up a guitar, strum a few notes, and sing a hauntingly beautiful, original tune. Harry ends up on Simon’s team, however this doesn’t stop Louis from checking in with Harry from time to time. Just to make sure his youth isn’t affecting his belief in himself. Harry and Louis click right off the bat and continue a nice friendship throughout Harry’s stint on the show. Harry gets through week after week, not only appealing to teenage girls, but also captivating older audiences. He has never been shy about his sexuality, and home audiences ship him with the also-out Louis. Shockingly, Harry is eliminated in the penultimate week, coming fourth overall. Harry is upset, but it is not until Louis goes to comfort him (“Hazza, who cares? Everyone knows the people that come third and fourth do better than the winner anyway”), that Harry admits he was more upset because he feels like he has disappointed Louis. And then the home audience’s ship comes to life. Harry and Louis begin dating after the season ends. Although Louis wasn’t his mentor, the pair decided it would be best for appearances to hold off until the competition was over. Cue candid shots at all hours of the day. Harry and Louis, walking in the park, and feeding the ducks. Harry and Louis, out for dinner at small, intimate venues, leaving with their hands clasped . Harry and Louis, out at all the events of the season, dressed in tailored suits. Harry and Louis, when Harry’s career takes off and he’s invited to every launch ever. Harry and Louis, when Louis’ song-writing is recognised and he becomes a lecturer at the local (prestigious) music college. Harry and Louis, when Louis judges on The X-Factor the following year, and his guest mentor at home visits is Harry, and all the groups get flown to their house in LA, and get to see the Larry love-nest in all its glory. Harry and Louis, when they finally get engaged. And all of the UK can attest to the fact that they saw the blossoming love between the former popstar turned successful songwriter, and the fourth-placed indie artist who hit the bigtime. A love story for the ages.
If you think After is not about an abusive relationship, I beg you, please watch this video and think again.

#i’m all for fanfiction#and i’m all for those writers going on to do great things#but what i can’t sit idly by and watch#are writers who romanticize unhealthy /abusive/ relationships get their stories idealized#and turned into something to aspire to and for#that’s the part that scares me#this author has already reached so many people with her writing#and it feels like twilight all over again#even if you’re not a 1d fan#this is still important#it’s bigger than it having used harry for the main character#its that the relationship is abusive and praised as something to desire#which no.#please no.
