Demobilization - Chapter 1 - 743ish, sallysparrow017 - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.


In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

Say Hallelujah, Say Goodnight - Chapter 1 - alivingfire - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Louis is an angel who is just a little too bad to be good, Harry is a demon who is just a little too good to be bad, and they're both a little too in love to be impartial when angels and demons go to war.

Louis has been alive since life was a mere concept; he watched the summoning of Man into existence, he was there when Eve took the apple. He’s seen seas break the world into separate pieces, he’s watched empires crumble into dust. He’s seen wildfire consume cities, he’s seen the world painted white with snow. He has known the most beautiful humans to walk the planet, he has watched the most powerful mortals gather their riches and influence around them and then die just like the poorest, weakest humans do. He’s met humans whose motives defy explanation, people who use their lives as battering rams, as tools, as weapons, as chess pieces.

None of that stopped Louis in his tracks.

But Harry did.

i could dream all night - fondleeds - One Direction [Archive of Our Own]
As the sun kisses the horizon, one last flash of light before the stars and the moon take over, his phone will brighten in his grasp, Louis’ name appearing on screen, come over or wanna see you or miss your mouth. Harry always lingers on those messages, elbows bruising on the cool metal of the railing by the lookout, watching the water as he thumbs at the side of his phone, lips bitten into his mouth, trying to will away the bubbling in his stomach, the heat that flushes to his neck at the thought of being thought of.

At the thought of Louis thinking of him.


AU. Harry spends his summer away from the city.

Neither Can Floods Drown - el_em_en_oh_pee - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Louis has built a pretty decent life for himself in his hometown. He has his work, he has his best friends, he has his family, he has his church. Over the past three years, he's learned to live with heartbreak. Things are going well.

That's when he gets the news that He Who Must Not Be Named is coming back to town. That's when the flood comes, crashing in over the valley. That's when everything changes.

It may not be the apocalypse, but Louis's world still feels like it's ending.

"Do you think we’ll still be doing this next year?” Louis asked suddenly. “Like — after graduation and all?”
“Course we will,” Zayn said. In the moment, it was unfathomable that they wouldn’t. Hell, this was just what they did. They worked stupid jobs. They spent their spare cash on weed and burgers. They put miles on Harry’s car the night before the Fourth of July. They didn’t give voice to the surging, knotty ties that drew the three of them together. “Best friends forever, right?”
“Forever and ever,” Harry swore.

[i've literally said "jesus christ" like five times out loud now. gorgeous but painful in a lot of ways.]

Coup de Foudre - angelwarm - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Harry moves to the front door accompanied by insistent lightning flashes. He acknowledges it could also be a murderer on the other side and that he will likely be dead in five minutes.

It should stop him. It doesn’t.

Harry decides not to waste another second and calls through to the other side, “Just a second.” He turns the key in the latch and opens it and—everything around him drops away in one long cloud coming into another cloud.

Space AU. Harry wants nothing more than to be human.

[Harry is quiet again, his face completely unreadable save the occasional flash behind his eyes. Nick thinks that if someone else—someone human—just sat there without saying anything, Nick would be annoyed and a little uncomfortable and probably start rambling himself. But Harry’s not human, and Nick can be patient.]

amaryllis - Chapter 1 - hattalove - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
"Where are we?"
"Um. A little while out of London?" Niall tries, seemingly the only one willing to not be mysterious and provide Harry with information, and. Oh.
"London London? As in, the capital of England London?" he asks, just in case he'd misheard.
"No, the other London," Louis laughs, low and biting. He comes closer finally, the moonlight just enough to reveal a sharp-cut jaw and pale skin. "Sorry, Pup."
Nobody's ever called Harry a "pup". Frankly, he finds it quite insulting, but he lets it slide to try and comprehend his current crisis.

or the one where harry gets bitten by a werewolf. louis is the mysterious not-quite alpha, liam and zayn have Things going on, niall is their token human, and together, they watch a lot of TV.

The Man with the Clockwork Heart - indigostohelit
[ His village destroyed by the northern Empire, Steve Rogers is sold as a slave to Lord Tony Stark, a man with no heart but a ticking clockwork machine inside his chest. He's been told that Lord Stark takes pleasure slaves, and bitter, grieving, and terrified, he expects nothing more of a northerner. But months pass, and Stark does nothing. In a rapidly unfolding chaos of scheming politics and a clockwork world, Steve begins to wonder what sort of man Stark is-- and whether he'd mind being a pleasure slave at all.][AKA that Steampunk AU I didn't know I'd love so much.]

gradiva: Brian Kinney and the History of Architecture
When I was eighteen and still enraptured with Brian Kinney, I would dream of us in a modern-day glass menagerie, with subtle golden chandeliers. There would be candles that cast shadows against the wall, and the dancing flame would ensconce us in our perfectness, in an immaculate art that would transcend Brian's pain and my disabilities, recreate us as epic heroes, legends to be emulated. I got over that too.
