    Summary

    "Why can't life be free like that? I guess that's why it's all fiction. Gives you the illusion so you keep believing..." Now I was just rambling, please, god, shut up now. "It's wrong."

    "It's not wrong to still believe," Niall said, making me lock my eyes with his.

    I smiled sadly, he doesn't understand. "Well, I gave up years ago. No point in starting now."

    I felt my hand being held, not gripped, but held in comfort by his. The soft warmth that came from the sentiment was making my cynicism hard to mask.

    "You don't have to...give up, I mean."

    My eyes scaled to meet his, piercing me with compassion and understanding. I swallowed, feeling my throat go dry. Why was he staring at me like he knew me? Like he got me?

    Summary

    "Caller, you're on the air. How can I heal you tonight?"

    "I didn't phone ya to be healed. I called to say this is rubbish. That YOU are full of shit." An angry Irish accent blundered over the airwaves.

    "Excuse me? You wanna repeat that again?"

    "You can't possibly heal anyone unless you've been in their shoes, love."

    My mouth gapped and I realized I was too shocked to reply. I've never gotten a caller this rude before.

    I swallowed slowly, "The healing process starts when we stop being a burden to ourselves. I simply offer a platform for open discussion in matters of the heart. What's your name, caller?"

    "You're not ready for that, love." The line went dead. I tried calling him back and seethed when I caught PRIVATE labeled on the caller ID. Fuck.

    Summary

    There are times in life where you fall in love...
    There are times in life where you keep secrets. But you can't take them to your grave.
    There are times in life where you wonder if everything you have ever known is a lie.
    There are times in life where you have to take risks. Because life is about taking risks.
    There are times in life where you have to make choices. Hard ones that will for sure change your life.
    There are times in life where you make mistakes. Some might be hard to forgive but most are unforgettable.
    There are times in life where you have to make sacrifices. Some of them might be really painful.
    It doesn't matter if your life is short or long. Age is nothing but a number and death is freedom and safety. Life can be sweet, painful, joyful, and cruel at the same time. A complicated never ending maze. A roller coaster with a lot of ups and downs, twists and turns. All of this doesn't matter. What matters is what you choose to make of it. How do you choose to live your life?
    There are times in life where you fall in love. But your one true love only comes once in a life time.
    This a story that will happen to Liam once in his life time.
    It's up to him...

    Summary

    She went to her horse but stopped when Niall gently touched her shoulder. She shivered and turned around, backing away with even more fear laced in her eyes.

    "Please, don't hurt me..." she said, cowering from him and took the reins hanging on her horse.

    Okay, something is seriously wrong, Niall thought, as his eyes narrowed, "I wouldn't do that, ever. What's wrong, Malena?"

    She swallowed and forced herself back on the saddle, scrambling to steer her horse correctly, "Stay away from me."

    Niall went toward her but it was too late, she turned around and tried placing her feet in the stirrup but missed.

    She looked and seemed sloppy, riding as if she lost control, ignoring Niall calling out to her.

    Summary

    Niall would be lying if he were to say he wasn’t dreading Christmas. But maybe with some Christmas magic (and some help from Zayn), being stuck there wasn’t going to be so bad after all.

     

    Or the one where Niall can’t go back home to celebrate Christmas, so Zayn decides to bring Christmas to him (and maybe fall in love in the process).

     

    based on this prompt from the 1d Christmas fest:
    college au where they're all the only ones staying in the dorms over christmas but they dont know each other very well and they throw tiny dorm parties and eat junk food and bond [might have chosen a lot of directive liberties]

    Summary

    His Royal Highness King Louis I of England is, as you would've guessed; the king of England as well as all the 54 commonwealth countries. With that, comes power. Not only the fact you have power, also that you want more power.

    Due to the laws in England and the creation of the Department of Fate and Destiny (DFD), you don't get to decide your career or who you want to spend the rest of your life with. Destiny decides.

    Niall gets paired with Louis, simple enough? Then there's Zayn because it was a life or death situation, Harry because the DFD paired him and Liam because Louis gets what he wants.

    Louis now has four husbands, which means thing will run four times less smoothly.

    (This does have a small amount of sexual content but it is primarily marked as mature for the unhealthy portrayal of relationships. Nothing about the relationships should be endorsed or considered appropriate).

    Summary

    It was all he could think about, and maybe it was bad that his thoughts were entwined with Harry. That he was consumed by thoughts of his green eyes, or his pink lips, or his fucking stupidly cute dimple.

     

    Or the one where Niall goes to London to escape his demons, and Niall and his demons end up entwined with Harry.

    Summary

    Niall sighs and stamps her bare foot against the carpet like a child. "I'll just take care of myself then, I've got a vibrator upstairs."

    He grabs her wrist and holds it tightly. "Nope. You waited four years, you can wait another few months."

    OR

    Niall falls in love with a social outcast. It changes everyone’s lives for the better.

    Summary

    Maybe the X Factor wasn't the first time Louis and Harry had met. Maybe it was always meant to be, unavoidable in the universe. And maybe it happened a little bit differently than we think it did.

    Summary

    He and Harry are hosting Christmas this year, is the thing. Harry had mentioned back in November that he was worried how his mother would fare hosting dinner all by herself for the first time since Robin had passed away, so the original plan was for them to go up there for Christmas Eve so that Harry could help. Then, come the beginning of December, upon dreading having to deal with two Christmases between his own parents — they’re all friends, sure, but Christmas is a whole other Thing — Niall had more or less had an epiphany which had eventually resulted in both of them calling their respective parents to suggest that they, he and Harry, could host Christmas for everyone.

    Needless to say, their parents had been on board immediately.

    And so- They’d planned and calculated everything; the flights, the AirBnBs, the amount of food they’d need to serve 16 people — the whole nine (or should it be 12, seeing as it’s more festive?) yards.

    But then, at precisely 9:03 a.m. sharp on December 23rd- That’s when all hell decides to let loose, because thus begins:

    The 12 Disasters of Christmas.

    Summary

    “‘s crazy, innit?” Niall asks. “Like- It’s literally insane to think we just got married after not even five minutes of knowing each other.”

    Harry giggles. “I know. I think it’ll be fun though. It’ll be good.”

    Niall arches an eyebrow. “Good?”

    “Yeah,” Harry nods, looking sideways at him. “Good. I have high hopes. I mean, look at you- Why wouldn’t I have high hopes?”

    Niall blushes, tears his gaze away from Harry’s to look outside again.

    “But also, even if it doesn’t work out, at least we’ll have done a bit of travelling for free, right? Dunno about you, but I’ve always wanted to go to Italy — and I’ve got a good feeling about this honeymoon of ours. Plus, even if it doesn’t work out, I hope that we still like each other enough to be friends after this, you know? And if so, then whatever is about to happen will be worth it somehow, in the end.”

    “You’re awfully optimistic,” Niall notes.

    “I get that from my mother," Harry smirks. He lifts his glass up, gestures silently for Niall to do the same — which he does. Harry’s cocktail to Niall’s pint. “To new adventures, new experiences, new friends-“ He knocks his shoulder against Niall’s. “And maybe even to falling in love, yeah?”
