take me out tonight (z/n)

It’s one dreary day in the middle of August, where the temperature is abnormally low and all this sporadic weather is really fucking with Niall’s body, so he decides to hit this small diner on their 4 hour break in hopes of scoffing down as much chicken broth as possible. Zayn joins him just because he can. It’s got flickering neon lights, streaked linoleum flooring, puke green booths with slashes 2 feet long across the upholstery, and a jukebox that barely hums over the insistent ticking of a clock. Zayn says he likes it, the feeling reminds him of his outdated aunt’s house. They order their lunch from a beautiful girl with long, curled eyelashes, whose name is, of course, Flo. By the time they’re done, Niall is pretty sure he might sneeze the noodles out of his nose, and Zayn just laughs at him, incredibly fond and ready to order the milkshake he knows Niall will want later on.

zouis minific

In dire need of a 50k fic where Zayn and Louis meet each other during freshman orientation in high school— Zayn being that tentative, shy boy who’s incapable of dealing with stress and recently picked up the habit of smoking, and Louis that obnoxiously social kid who fishes in between the cliques already forming, like he’s known every single person in their grade for years.

I’m totally willing to write like snippets every now and then tho, until I can get my stuff together or someone decides to tackle it! So, if anyone wants it, feel free to write the shit out if it!

haha someone kill me really

AU where Zayn is this sad r&b artist disillusioned with the music industry and Niall is the cute studio intern who seduces Zayn into an instant friendship by tripping over giant racks of CDs and spilling coffee inside the sound booth. Niall also spends nights pouring over old material with Zayn, trying to help him regain that old sound he misses in his music so much. And Zayn basically falls in love with the dude because how can he not, especially when Niall saddles up to him every morning with a coffee in one hand and a 90s mixtape in the other, saying shit like “i know you would like this” or “maybe we should sample this for a track.” And after years of Niall saying “bro, we should make an album of our own,” and Zayn sleepily replying “that would be sick, man” they finally do and the media goes absolutely fucking nuts, naming them the dynamic duo of the year while slapping them with titles like “pioneers” and “power couple.” So, it’s basically no surprise when they start their own label and move in together for the “purpose of their joined musical careers.” And they keep on smashing it single after single, dominating the whole music scene until one lazy day in the middle of their living room, they kiss with the last track of their unreleased EP playing in the background, and Zayn falls even more in love, which he didn’t think was even possible, and Niall chuckles because they could have been doing this the entire time.

Sometimes it feels like Harry and Zayn had this special thing where they used to hang out all the time in each other’s hotel rooms, watching shitty movies, or anything on television that could be background static for their sexual tension. And then one day Harry kind of just “tripped” and fell on Zayn’s lips and they made out for hours on end, just the two of them getting to know each other in a whole new way. Eventually it leads to quickies before and after shows, but for some reason, things get incredibly awkward because Zayn realizes he can’t properly sleep without Harry anymore, and it’s a bit ridiculous considering he’s made sleeping a fucking Olympic sport, and Harry’s every thought becomes something like “oh I wonder if Zayn will like this,” or “Zayn would love to be here right now.” So, they both decide to lay off a bit because there are tours to conquer and fans to please, but now there’s just this weird feeling that remains, like they’re distant friends even though they spend every waking moment together. And Zayn can’t help but look at Harry’s lips every time he enters a conversation, and Harry finds it impossible to break his gaze whenever Zayn does something as little as breathe. So, now they’re right back where they started: massively unsure and incredibly lost.

Ok but Niall is this guy who’s probably a little bit in love with every person he meets, so he naturally sees all the things beautiful in Zayn. Like,”wow Zayn you dance so well,” “your cheekbones are so pretty, Zayn,” “Zayn, you’re a fantastic artist don’t underplay yourself,” “I love you, Zayn.” And he just doesn’t understand, can’t completely fathom, why no one else sees the extraordinary person that Zayn is, so he spends most of his time reminding Zayn himself. Because, Niall figures Zayn needs that type of encouragement in his life, and then he realizes that maybe he kind of lives off that crinkly smile Zayn gives him whenever he receives one of Niall’s compliments, and maybe he wants the whole world to see that Zayn is possibly the greatest thing to grace the earth, but at the same time, he wants to keep that fact— or really just Zayn— all to himself. So, he’s stuck with this internal dilemma: “to compliment or not to compliment,” but he kind of decides that it doesn’t really matter, and he just rolls with whatever comes to mind first, because everything Zayn does is practically perfect, and Niall knows it deserves to be acknowledged.
