1D

Harry/Zayn
Cool With It by threeturn. X-Factor era cuteness.

Nick/Harry
Most Dauntless, Voiceless Fortitude by mrsronweasley. Regency era AU. So beautiful. I have a lot of feelings about this.
No Power in the 'Verse by waspabi. Firefly fusion. Very ensemble, much science fiction. Also the only fic with Zayn/Louis I've read probably.
The Feeling Is Beating Now by blueandbrady. Fingerfucking. And also feelings and miscommunication.

Liam/Louis
see beneath by daisysusan. Non-famous AU. Louis and Liam are roommates and pretend to be boyfriends.

MCR and friends, all slash
(To Die Will Be) An Awfully Big Adventure by FayJay. Possibly the first story I read in Bandom: now my new fandom I didn't need! Vampire Gerard, fairies, werewolves, polyamory, LynZ Way, plot, intrigue, good stuff. (Note that FayJay was planning to take down all her stuff at some point, so download!)
Gerard Way's (Vampire) Detective Agency [audiobook] by FayJay, fic by jjtaylor. Haven't actually finished listening to this yet, but so far so amazing. world-building, vampires, murder mystery, sexual tension with one's valet! All read in FayJay's masterful voice.
the first rule of broom-wielding by skoosiepants. Very cute AU where everyone in Bandom lives in the same apartment building. No idea who most of these people are.
sing it for the n00bs by jedusaur. MMORPG AU.
Unholyverse series by Bexless. Tattoo parlor/Priest AU with exorcisms, demonic possession, stigmata, Buffy references, etc. Plus pining and drama and romantic stuff. And humor. Basically it has everything you could want except no vampires or robots. That would just be greedy.

1D recs
cloud
aethel
Nick/Harry
Like a Lightning Strike by Hllangel. Canon divergence AU in which 1D didn't get past judges' houses. I think you accidentally took my red tartan jacket from Mahiki last night. My keys were in my pocket. You had an avocado in yours, which I'm sure was equally important.

Nick/Louis
Not Your Fault But Mine by sunsetmog. Louis-centric, plus OT5 friendship. College AU with realistic
depression (but with a happy ending; no one flunks out)
Podfic of The Disgruntled Novelist's Bodacious Pornographer (or, that time Nick and Louis were rival romance writers) by greedy_dancer. Beautifully read podfic of a funny AU about rival romance writers by aliferuined.

Harry/Niall

way, no way by irishmizzy and miss_bennie. Amazing sequel to the amazing emotional knapsack. Together they are the quintessential, the ultimate, the standard Narry future fic against which all Narry future fics are measured. In a word, I liked it.
Baby, I by makesomelove. Aka the best babypire fic ever written. Niall gets bitten by a baby at the beginning of tour and starts craving milk. Harry provides. OH YES HE DOES. When Niall grows up, they live happily ever after. All the benefits of a vampire fic, but with none of the woe-is-me-i'm-dead-forever drama. Except for that other Vampire!Niall fic that's also drama-free.

Niall/Liam
One Hundred Per Cent by threeturn. Liam is 100% not gay, but Niall has a plan. Or, five times Niall came up with a ridiculous excuse for him to have sex with Liam and one time aliens did. One of ten delightful stories in the TROPEGATE collection.

Liam/Louis
the pawn to your king by blackwayfarers. Harry thinks Liam and Louis are dating, so they pretend to be boyfriends to get back at him. Then they realize they are dating, so they pretend not to be to get back at Harry.
slow to acknowledge the knots in our laces by dicktective. Liam and Louis play gay chicken; Liam accidentally wins.
Enough to Go By by oliviacirce. Novel-length futurefic in which Liam has been secretly in love with Louis for years, and Louis is going through a divorce and needs a place to stay. Haylor makes an appearance.
Louis Tomlinson and the Upstairs Neighbor by mistresscurvy. an AU in which Liam and his daughter move into the apartment upstairs from Louis. Contains a surprise fusion that's not really a surprise, given that it's right there in the title whoops. I loved it.
Grey sweaters = clones, apparently? by greedy_dancer. Futuristic dystopian notfic, but with happy ending.

Harry/Louis
Trust in Your Dream by disarm_d. Non-AU, sort of. Harry hits his head and wakes up in a world where he and Louis are not dating. Louis is straight, so no happy ending. Very sad.
if it's me you're looking for by eleadore. Non-famous AU. Harry and Louis live together, pine secretly, but never say anything and date other people like idiots. lots of angst, but happy ending!

Zayn/Liam, Harry/Louis, Zayn/Harry, Liam/Louis
Yours Faithfully by threeturn. Space AU with soulbonds. Niall is a spaceship. Zayn and Liam are popstars. Harry and Louis are ex-slaves. Little Mix are resistance fighters. Do you need to know more?

One Direction recs, old and new
cloud
aethel
Harry/Niall
emotional knapsack by irishmizzy and miss_bennie. Non-AU slow-burn future fic of my heart. After One Direction breaks up, everyone else seems to have settled into their new lives, but Harry and Niall are both a bit lonely and depressed. Harry has the feeling that he's forgotten something and thinks touring again is the answer. (Hint: Fucking Niall is the answer.)

Louis/Liam

These Streets Are Yours by sunsetmog. College AU. Angst, with a side of angst. Happy ending, though!
Fine By Me (if you never leave) by harriet_vane. Nonfamous AU. Liam is a great fake boyfriend!

Nick/Harry
Better Life Choices by Ferritin4. Not an AU. Fake boyfriends secretly pining, like you do.
And If This is the Only Thing I Want by estrella30. Not an AU. Nick and Harry kiss sometimes, like you do.
nowhere better than this place
by waspabi. AU with Farmer Harry (the hat, you know) and Fashion Writer Nick. This is the most beautiful (and the only) Farmer Harry fic I've read, except for the gay farmer dating tumblr not!fic by rubdown, which was pretty funny, but not actually a fic.

Nick/Louis
The Disgruntled Novelist's Bodacious Pornographer (or, that time Nick and Louis were rival romance writers) by aliferuined. AU.
Three Cheers for Involuntary Attraction (and sequels) by checkthemargins. Not an AU
and i never saw you coming by annemari. Not an AU. Someone sends Nick anonymous backhanded compliments in the mail.
I Had Rather Hear My Dog Bark At A Crow by sunsetmog. Not an AU. Lots of pining and emotional confusion, secret relationship, being in the closet, slightly kinky. This is the best entry in the Nick/Louis enemyslash category... although I haven't found any Nick/Louis yet where they didn't "hate" each other, so I guess that makes this the best Nick/Louis fic!

Miscellaneous One Direction Recs

Marcel the marketing guy Marcel is wonderful, and there should be more fic about him.
But If You Close Your Eyes Does It Almost Feel Like by pukeandcry. Marcel/Louis. AU. Louis is the receptionist; Marcel has a crush.
Cute as Buttons by threeturn. Music video canon. Harry/Marcel. Harry has regrets after they trashed the office.

happy non-AU One Direction fanfic
cloud
aethel
Fell head-first into a new fandom, whoops. I had no idea who the members of One Direction were when I started looking for fic, so I picked pairings at random and tried to find rec lists. Also clicked on lazy_daze's AO3 bookmarks. At bitchinparty, burnishedvictory gave me a huge set of One Direction recs I haven't had time to sort through yet, but I'll be stuck in a car for seven hours tomorrow (/o\), so it'll come in handy. Meanwhile, I have challenged myself to find non-AUs amidst the sea of nonfamous college stories. Also, happy endings are a requirement. Here's what I've got so far:

OT5
Outlast by disarm_d. Louis starts a bet to see who can last the longest without masturbating.

Harry/Niall
Maybe With Me by threeturn. Niall has feelings, Harry is clueless, the band is charming. So great I made a podfic of it to express my feelings.

remember that time on the bus by estrella30. Niall suggests they have sex, and Harry likes the idea more the longer he thinks about it.

Harry/Zayn
if you never let me go, well I will never let you down by estrella30.

(just like) starting over by robpatFF. Pretend boyfriends; predictable results.

The one where Zayn can't stop acting like Harry's boyfriend by shuttermutt. Accidental boyfriends.
See these affectionate Tumblr gifs for reference.

Louis/Nick Grimshaw
Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better Than You by aliferuined. Louis has to be an asshole about everything; Nick likes it. Sequel.

Harry/Nick
i should ink my skin with your name by crucios. Harry POV

If This Is Love by sunsetmog. Nick POV. Broke my heart, then mended it. Airport reunion scene!

In Vodka Veritas by Vae. Nick POV. Harry complains about bisexual invisibility.

keep my heart slow by estrella30. Harry POV. Nick produces a boyfriend out of nowhere, and Harry goes on tour broken-hearted. But happy ending!

Liam/Louis
Replay, Darling by lazy_daze. Louis flirts via obnoxious word games. Apparently the obnoxious word games are canon.

My Love is as a Fever by harriet_vane. Hurt/Comfort. "Liam gets sick. Louis looks after him."

Trade All My Tomorrows for Just One Yesterday by harriet_vane. Actually a Groundhog Day AU, but apart from the time loop, it's still the same band.

Harry/Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf RPF crossover)
How Do You Think It Goes by makesomelove. Dylan's a fan. So's Harry. This hilarious and charming fic is what led me down the rabbit hole.

and that's it so far... I thought there were more, but they were all AUs. I also bookmarked several rec lists, but may not have actually looked at them all yet.

My Vacation in the Pacific Northwest, aka I went to Pacificon last weekend!!
cloud
aethel
Pacificon, aka Bitchin Party, was held Friday-Sunday. I flew in on Thursday so I could do some sight-seeing in Seattle before the con because I'd never been to the Pacific Northwest before. I walked around the waterfront, Pike Place Market, and the international district. I also went into the newish public library and the sky view observatory. I may have had an atypical experience--it was sunny every day I was there--but I must say I was impressed: clean city, nice people, not too crowded, a wall of astronomically tall mountains in the distance, and the most beautiful public library I have ever seen. I also had a mysterious allergic reaction/infection so horrifying that I went to the emergency room, where they assured me that I did not have blood poisoning and wouldn't need to have my arms amputated. Slightly less reassuring was the way they couldn't decide if it was tick bites or poison ivy. I now eagerly await my medical bills.

THE CON ITSELF: unfortunately, a bit of a blur already. So much enthusiasm, so many conversations with so many fangirls! On Friday I ran into Franzeska and her lurker friend Alice while waiting for the bus to the con, and we talked about the OTW loudly on the crowded bus until we reached the hotel. I sat for a bit reading One Direction fic in the lobby until [personal profile] regonym arrived, since we were rooming together in the hotel, but that was pretty much the only break from fannish socializing I had until I went to bed. As more and more people arrived, we basically took over the hotel lobby until the consuite finally opened up. Lots of podficcers and lots hockey fans. I did find rivers_bend and lokte to squee over One Direction with. (I also talked to Anoel about One Direction at some point during the con, but she was with the hockey crowd the first evening.) lokte mentioned how there used to be a similar multifandom con in the UK, but it ended. Scribe and fiercynn arrived and remembered me from Muskrat Jamboree. I recognized a few other people from MJ as well, but also found out that people I didn't recognize had also been there and I just didn't notice. Several people reminded me of friends from high school or college or just had an air of familiarity that I couldn't pin down. They hadn't all been to MJ, so I guess it was their fannishness I recognized.

Brynn McK gave us a welcome speech in the consuite and played a Dante's Cove con intro vid by sdwolfpup(?) that made me realize I needed to watch Dante's Cove just to confirm that it really existed. Then most of us sat down to watch the amazingly bad Sharknado. Much laughing and commentary about breaking the laws of physics ensued.

SATURDAY: At breakfast I ran into FishieMishie, who not only remembered me from OTW work, but also seemed to be happy to see me despite my having quit and run screaming into the night. We talked about MCU and OTW stuff. At some point panels started, and I went to as many as possible, but didn't take many notes: "Ethics and Squee", "Teen Wolf", "Attachment and Identification in Fandom" (which ended up being about a different topic due to the original mod dropping out), and "Podfic How-To". I also went to lunch with Franzeska, Alice, and FishieMishie and ate shawarma for the first time. Alice is very funny, by the way.

"Ethics and Squee": according to my hazy recollection, we discussed some fears about making fanworks of fanworks (remixes, sequels, fanart of fanfic, podfic, etc.), both from the point of view of the transformee and the transformer, and also three questions relating to the topic--do we want to follow legal precedent or make our own norms, blanket permission, and ???. The issue of what happens when the original fanwork is taken down was discussed--maybe that was the third point? The orphan works problem was also on the list to discuss, but we didn't get to it.

"Teen Wolf": The discussion was pretty wide-ranging, but I only remember what I wrote down--the show's theme of loss of bodily control (Stiles taken over by the nogitsune, Derek used by Scott and Gerard, the kanima being controlled by Matt/Gerard, Peter's insanity, Lydia not having control/knowledge of being a banshee, Peter calling Scott in season 1, bitten werewolves in general. I made a point about how this relates to the theme in the original movie about werewolves as a puberty metaphor. We discussed whether the theme was deliberate or whether Jeff Davis just had a lot of issues. The mods talked about the different cultural sources of the mythology of the show (e.g. banshee, nemeton = Celtic; kitsune = Japanese). Peter as a catalyst maybe canon, creating a werecoyote, a true alpha, Lydia's banshee powers, whatever Kate is. The significance of various characters' names: Mahealani = full moon in Hawaiian, Lydia Martin = ? Some discussion of fandom: one person on the official TW social media team was trying to police critical reblogs of their posts and got told by Tumblr to knock it off. Tumblr wank about Tyler Posey's opinion of Sterek. Sterek fans hating on Peter/Lydia shippers. Discussion of how the average age of fans affects wank--the Ray Wars happened because due South fandom was young, and they ended when people got older and wiser. The TW showrunners actively encouraging wank because they want to be the trending topic on twitter and think attention is always a good thing. How TW showrunners handle interaction with fans vs. how Sleepy Hollow does it. At the end of the panel, one person pointed out how amazing the gay representation on Teen Wolf was. Danny is popular and an athlete!

After the panels, a bunch of us went to a room to record some group podfic. People found enough fic to record that we had to reconvene on Sunday during lunch. Regonym commented later how different an experience it was from recording solo--nobody stopped for retakes of minor errors, but just went with the flow.

Then cocktails and hor d'oeuvres and vid show and dance. I was sitting next to klb when jarrow and xeria showed up, and klb and jarrow proceeded to talk about nothing but Glee for the rest of the night (except during the actual vidshow). klb was a Klaine fan; jarrow was a Faberry fan. (klb said something about klaine fans viewing faberry fans as "magical faberry wizards", so it wasn't a ship war or anything.) I left at some point and came back, and I think it was exmanhater who commented on how it was a spectator sport, with various fans watching for a while until they realized klb and jarrow were just never going to stop talking about Glee before wandering off again. The vid show itself was good--I had seen a lot of the vids before (except obviously the premieres), but it was interesting to see everyone else react to them. The dance party was disappointing due to technical issues--the speakers were too quiet and fuzzy, so a lot of people left. However, the fanon Cecil and Glow Cloud cosplayers were a highlight.

After the official con stuff was over for the night: room parties! One room party was so crowded with possibly inebriated fangirls playing never have I ever that I went to a quieter room. Several people were there, but a few left, so it ended with Alice, burnishedvictory, Scribe, and me giving each other fic recs and talking about fandoms past and present. Good times.

SUNDAY: I managed to get up early because I was still on east coast time, but a lot of other people did not. I only went to two panels--the Welcome to Night Vale panel, which was a piece of audio performance art that the mods promised would be posted online, and the due South panel, where we sang "Barret's Privateers" before chatting about how we found out about due South and what's been happening in the fandom lately. Scribe and the mod may have been the only currently active fans in the room? Scribe reported on how the fandom was still going strong, but the fic was a lot more diverse than the 2006-2008 wave (mostly Fraser/Kowalski). Also mentioned was the one Vecchio troll in the fandom who flames everyone, Kowalski and Vecchio fans alike, for not writing enough about Vecchio or loving him enough or something. The other two panel time slots I spent adding sparkles to photos of One Direction at the craft table. Someone had to do it.

After the panels was a "Rec my fandom" session, where everyone took turns telling us how amazing the canon for their smallish or possibly non-existent fandom was: Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, women's soccer ("You're all in the wrong sports fandom," said Scribe to the hockey fans), Babysitters' Club, Parks & Rec, Cut and Run book series, Pretty Little Liars, Once Upon a Time, The Blacklist, The Thrilling Adventure Hour, The Voice RPF, Longmire book series, Number 6 (anime or light novels), Amy Poehler and Seth Myers RPF, After Hours webseries, and the new Three Musketeers show.

Then dinner break, but I don't think I ate dinner? Some time passed, I applied One Direction temporary tattoos to my now normal-looking arms, talked to Franzi, watched some fans play Cards Against Humanity, and then everyone watched Newsies. So slashy. Then the con was done! Ten-fifteen of us who hadn't left yet ate a very late dinner at the hotel restaurant. klb asked everyone to name a personal highlight and a low point of the con. bessyboo swore about hockey. Several people mentioned being sick during the con. aphelant and abbylee? complained about inaccurate representations of Winnipeg in hockey fanfic. People talked about podfic. It was a good time.

Then it was Monday morning, and people who hadn't left yet were standing around in the hotel lobby looking ready to leave, including andeincascade, who I had thought left a day earlier. whoops. I had breakfast with Regonym and her driving buddy, whose name I have now forgotten...? I got to explain why One Direction was so awesome. Driving buddy made some observations about fannish dress codes and how unconventional we all looked and how refreshing that was. And then we packed and went our separate ways. :(

At the airport, I ran into bessyboo, and we talked about Minnesota cons and how I should watch Ouran High School Host Club. Then I ran to my gate and found no signs of boarding. I did find Scribe again, and we chatted until we had to get on the plane. And then the plane ride was looooong, and then my father picked me up, and I had dinner with my parents and told them about the con, and then I stayed up until 4 am reading a Harry/Zayn college AU and now I feel like a zombie. A zombie who should be cooking spaghetti right now.

And that was my Pacificon experience. Or what I can remember of it. The End.
