Back in October, I became mildly obsessed with Nick Grimshaw, and from there, it was a short jump to becoming obsessed with Nick Grimshaw and Harry Styles. This is the first RPF ship that I've become properly obsessed with (I've mostly just dabbled up until this point) and I'm having a lot of fun with it. :)

In the Notes section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "vampire turning" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

Besides, quitting Harry Styles is going to be enough quitting for the year, maybe for next year too.

Really fun supernatural AU with Nick as a vampire who happens along Harry as he's dying and turns him to save him. Well written and a super enjoyable read.

Title: Forever and a Night

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,892
Content/Warnings: AU: No One Direction,AU: High School, first time, switching, bottom!nick, bottom!harry, established relationship
Summary: Because the thing is, Nick has a rule, and he's normally shit at rules, but this one he's worked really, really hard at to keep. He doesn't have sex with people who aren't old enough to vote, because he's not a dirty old man, no matter how much it feels like it when he walks down the road holding Harry's hand. Because he's a good person, deep down inside. Because he's nine and a half years older than Harry, and he's trying to do a good thing. He's trying to do the best thing for Harry, who might think that he likes Nick now, but five years in the future he's going to look back and think, god, what a perv about Nick, and Nick desperately, desperately doesn't want that.
Except it's Harry's eighteenth birthday, and Nick's rule doesn't apply anymore, and all bets are off.
Sweet and sexy AU. I really loved the characterizations here, and it can definitely be read without reading the first fic in the series (which is Liam/Louis). The ending definitely felt like an ending, but it also leaves things a bit open, and it's clear it was written with a sequel in mind. Still satisfying, though it definitely left me hungry for more.

“He’s poisoning young minds,” says X Factor insider

“They can’t fucking do this,” Louis snarled, punching the arm of his chair. Across from them, Rich shook his graying head.“They’ve done it, lads,” he said sadly. “We’re not going to sit by idly, but they’ve done it.”
“Simon’s not homophobic,” Harry said viciously. Niall’s scowl deepened.
“No,” Rich said, sitting back. “Trust me, everyone in this industry knows that. We’ll be making many, many public statements, you boys will, and every other artist we manage. I’m going to ask one of you to take point on that,” he nodded as Louis’s hand flicked up, “and one of you to take the responsibility of assuming a boyfriend for a while.”
Fun and enjoyable read. Have to suspend some belief for the setup, but am always here for fake boyfriends and i really loved the relationship between Harry and Nick here.

Now, Harry is 21 and finishing up his degree in law when rumors start flying that his celebrity crush is about to be a judge on the X Factor. Maybe it's time he tries again. (Or, the current year X Factor AU where Harry rediscovers how much he loves to perform, gets kicked off, and then has to figure out what he's doing next. With Nick's help, of course.)

Summary: Future AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.
So I'm not really a big 1D fan, nor am I all that enthusiastic about bandom fics, just because I find it harder to care about RL people in a shipping sense. But anemonen recced this, and it was an AU, so I figured I'd give it a go. I really enjoyed it! It's told primarily from Louis's POV with Zayn's POV tossed in for good measure. I really liked the characterizations and the friendships between all the boys, and how their relationships grew and evolved. I really liked that the two main relationships here were really very different, and if never felt repetitive or boring. The fic is mostly Louis/Harry as far as explicit interaction goes, though Zayn/Liam does get some screen time. I will say that the "misunderstanding because of a lack of communication" trope was almost overdone for me, but I think it was resolved just in the nick of time. Overall, I seriously hot, enjoyable read. [Also highly recommend the timestamp from Liam's POV, adorable and super sexy.]
