1D fic that doesn’t suck: a rec list
leaving this here for future reference
at the request of a charming & wonderful anon, so i hope they see this! there are many more 1D fics that don’t suck, but here are fifty-five (whaaaaat) recs that inspire a minimal amount of boy band-related shame. particular favorites are marked with a star; f-locked fics (boooooooo, i know, sorry) are noted. all the authors say this but to reiterate: not true, made-up, don’t own them, lies but not slander, blah blah.
OKAY COOL LET’S GO!
rec list, the quick and dirty tl;dr version:
- check out vlieger (fic locked at goalposts but i highly recommend friending), luxover (esp. this fic), littlemousling, cyclogenesis, lemonface (esp. this fic), intherubble, likecharity (fic locked but membership open at itunescuddle), pendules (fic at retorico), and mentalistecbm.
- if you’re wanting something that’s actually quick and dirty on top of being worth your time, frequently hilarious, and wonderfully written and characterized, definitely check out cyclogenesis and littlemousling.
