Because I’ve been reading a bunch of those over the last ~1.5-2 years, and there are a few of them that I can’t stop coming back to, over and over, really. So here I’m just reccing them, on the off chance that any of you might be interested, but mostly for an excuse to flail a bit. I realised that they’re all quite long, so might be a bit too overwhelming to be much of a temptation. But I think the long fics usually are the ones that stick with me the most, simply because I get to live inside them for an extended period of time. Also, with one exception, these are all completely AU, so they can just as well be read as original fiction. So, if any of you are looking for MM romance novels, here are some you can read completely for free ;)

I must say, I think the One Direction fandom is a very interesting second fandom to follow when you’re used to Harry Potter, because they’re very different. For one, probably more than 90 % of the stories are complete AUs, and there’s little world exploration in the way we see in HP. Since the stories are all set in such vastly different universes, it’s fascinating to see how the characters are written in each of them, and how much is similar and different from story to story. There’s also a lot of themes that are recurring, like homophobia, internalised and otherwise, coming out, being out, accepting feelings and daring to embrace something new and learning about one self.

Sooooo, hoping I managed to tickle someone's curiosity, and if not it was still rather liberating just flailing a bit to myself :)

I don't know if any of you are at all interested in them (probably not), but I keep ending up making 1d arts whether I like it or not. Mostly just posting them on Tumblr, but here's a couple of them if anyone's interested at all. Safe for work and all. I never make NSFWs though but you know :P

So, I mentioned in a recent post that I'd seen this otp art challenge that I wanted to try? I'd started it a bit, with a couple of pencil sketches, but I really struggled to get back into pencil drawing tbh. I'm still in my digital drawing steam, so the third I made is a digital painting. Not sure what I'll do with the rest, will see what feels right then and there.

The first is two quick pencil sketches for Day 1 - Holding hands and Day 2 - Cuddling:
Day 1 and 2 )

The next is Day 5 - kissing, which I did digitally:
Day 5 )

Here's a list of all the days. I'm assuming the point is to make one sketch each day and post in 30 consecutive days, but I'll have to be realistic and say that this isn't gonna happen. But I thought it was a fun list of inspiration!

01 - Holding hands
02 - Cuddling somewhere
03 - Gaming/watching a movie
04 - On a date
05 - Kissing
06 - Wearing eachothers’ clothes
07 - Cosplaying
08 - Shopping
09 - Hanging out with friends
10 - With animal ears
11 - Wearing kigurumis
12 - Making out
13 - Eating icecream
14 - Genderswapped
15 - In a different clothing style
16 - During their morning ritual(s)
17 - Spooning
18 - Doing something together
19 - In formal wear
20 - Dancing
21 - Cooking/baking
22 - In battle, side-by-side
23 - Arguing
24 - Making up afterwards
25 - Gazing into eachothers’ eyes
26 - Getting married
27 - On one of their birthdays
28 - Doing something ridiculous
29 - Doing something sweet
30 - Doing something hot



And then, since I'm ruined by 1d fandom, I couldn't keep myself from trying it in the end. So here's a digital painting of Harry Styles. With flowers. Because of course.
