Art #2 for zarah5 fic “Wear it like a crown”.
"Drawing his knees up to his chest, Harry folded his hands over them and set his chin on top. His smile was timid. “Duly noted. I take it Baby Jesus had a way of stealing your thunder?”
I always want to kiss you, Louis’ brain echoed, always, always.
So he reached out to fit his fingers around Harry’s jaw, leaned in and waited three slow, anxious heart beats for Harry to stop him. Instead, Harry’s lips parted on a soft exhale, warm air shivering over Louis’ skin. He made no move to extract himself.
Louis kissed him.
The gap between a flash of lightning and the rolling of thunder. That’s what it felt like, waiting for Harry to respond.”
After the last Tomlinshaw fic exchange, we were incredibly spoilt with some fantastic fics (shout out to masturfates for organising that success). While there are still some Tomlinshaw fics being posted every now and then, I think the best way to satisfy our need for more of the chemistry that can only be provided by Louis Tomlinson and Nicholas Grimshaw is a ficathon!!!
wizzardblizzard had the wonderful idea of using /tagged/tomlinshaw posts (i.e. any pictures, text, prompt ideas etc. that were tagged as Tomlinshaw on tumblr. They can be from your own tumblr tag or someone else’s).
In order to get a great mix of angst, fluff, smut, and au’s, it’ll be best to have a prompts list where everyone can choose from any submitted /tagged/tomlinshaw posts, so there are no double-ups and there are a good range of topics covered. When you sign up for the ficathon, there will be space for you to submit a couple of prompts OR you can just send an ask to taggedtomlinshawficathon, and I will make a prompt masterpost for people to choose from :)
This way, people are not limited to 3-5 prompts they might have been given. If you have your own /tagged/tomlinshaw post you would like to use as a prompt, that’s fine! Just mention it in your submission and I’ll make a note of it on the masterpost.
This also means FIRST IN, BEST DRESSED. There will be NO doubling up of /tagged/tomlinshaw posts, just because there are so many out there. We DON’T NEED two of a similar kind. Therefore, everyone should submit as many prompts as possible (even if you aren’t planning on writing!) so the authors have plenty to choose from!
Sign-up opens Thursday 4th September.
Sign-up closes Sunday 21st September.
Authors MUST inform me of what prompt they are choosing by NO LATER THAN FRIDAY 26th September. The masterpost is up now and will be updated as prompts come through, so keep an eye on it! Just send an ask here or here confirming what /tagged/tomlinshaw post you’re interested in!
Submissions are due by Sunday 30th November.
Fics will begin being posted on Wednesday 3rd December.
Sign up here. It will be necessary for you to have an ao3 account to participate, but that is super easy to sort out! Feel free to message me if you have any troubles! Fics will be submitted straight to the ao3 collection.
Minimum word count is 3,000, but please, FEEL FREE TO GO FOR AS LONG AS YOU PLEASE. I know I for one could do with a few long-ass fics to keep the Tomlinshaw flame alive! In saying that, anything over 3,000 is fine and will no doubt be appreciated in this fandom!
Try to get some version of your story to a beta before the submission date, just to catch any spelling and grammatical errors, or plot inconsistencies. I am happy to beta for anyone if they don’t have a beta/their beta is unavailable etc.
This is obviously not life-or-death, so if you sign-up and something happens and you really CANNOT finish your fic, please contact me ASAP. Obviously, your life and well-being is more important than a ficathon and as this is not an exchange as such, if you do not complete your fic, you are not leaving anyone empty-handed per se. However, PLEASE DON’T SIGN UP if you’re not serious about this ficathon or think you won’t be able to finish. It is just for fun, but if heaps of people pull out last minute and then we get four fics, imagine how disappointed we’ll be (and I might cry!)
Other ways to support this ficathon:
Follow this blog. All of the fics will be posted here as well as ao3, and if anyone is kind enough to do any manips/art, they will also be posted here.
Reblog this post so as many people know about the /tagged/tomlinshaw ficathon as possible! We want as many writers covering as many posts as we can. Even if you don’t want to/can’t participate, please reblog so we can spread the word and get some interest going!
Submit prompts for the authors to choose from! Whether or not you are planning to write for the ficathon, submit some /tagged/tomlinshaw posts here for me to add to the prompts masterpost. This gives the authors plenty to choose from and so many different Tomlinshaw angles to cover.
Finally, I hope everyone involved has fun with this ficathon. I personally can’t wait to see what kind of /tagged/tomlinshaw posts people are considering and look forward to reading some quality Tomlinshaw fics come December! Please, don’t hesitate to contact me here or here if you have ANY questions at all!

Summary: Niall looks at Zayn, his jaw set and gaze hardened before he sighs, shaking his head. “What’s your mark?” Niall asks, looking at Zayn. Zayn pulls down his shirt collar, absently running his fingers along the ‘Friday?’ etched there. Niall laughs under his breath. “Want to know mine?” Zayn nods. “Me too.”
Or the one where soul mates exist, identified by a mark on your body. Zayn believes Niall is his, but Niall is convinced he doesn’t have one.
this was written for me in a fic exchange!! it’s PERFECT and you should all check it out!!
