AN X-FACTOR 2010 REVIVAL FICATHON


Whilst roaming the streets of a foreign country, four of us got talking about our need to remember the good times that were late '10, when One Direction were just small boys we often muddled up, Matt and Aiden spent more time being boyfriends than singing, and each week we simultaneously watched our TV and clung to our laptops, crying so hard we scared our cats (that one may have just been me).

A lot of amazing things are happening right now: Aiden's finally given us a song (A PERFECT, PERFECT SONG THAT MAKES ME WAIL IN HAPPINESS), Matt E still proves to be everyone's Fairy Godmother, and One Direction are taking over the world like a litter of hyperactive puppies. All these things are worthy of emphatic praise.

But amongst all that it is important to remember how we got here: The X-Factor Series 7. A time we all shed any of the dignity still clinging to us and handed over our souls faster than Cheryl could say "intense". It was not just a fandom, it was a way of life.

And thus THE REVIVAL FICATHON is born.


HOW IT WORKS:

• Comment with prompts (one prompt per comment, please, but comment as many times as you'd like). Absolutely anything goes as long as it's about one of the people involved in The X-Factor 2010 (the contestants, the judges, the hosts - hi, Dermot! - etc).

• Write for the prompts you get inspired by! There can be more than one fill per prompt.

• Be polite. I don't care if people ship something you don't, just write your own prompt and cross your fingers. There'll be no bashing here.

• IF YOUR FIC REQUIRES A WARNING, MAKE IT CLEAR AT THE TOP OF THE POST. Seriously.

• LEAVE FEEDBACK. everyone likes to have their ego stroked now and then.

• Pimp this shit out:



• Have fun and feel free to ask me any questions.

Hey hun, just wondering, if it's long, can we post it somewhere else and post the link here? Or would you rather it in comment form? Doesn't matter either way, just curious :)

our lives blended better

The name is Harry’s idea. It sounds like it’d be a Louis thing but that’s just Harry’s dimples getting deceptive, really, and the name Wand Erection was Harry’s idea. Whenever Liam feels like he needs to remind himself that Harry’s the youngest, that’s what he remembers.

Course, they’d all gone with it, Liam can’t blame it all on Harry. And it’s better than Harry and the Rotters. That’d been Harry’s first suggestion. That’d been when Liam’d used up his veto. On balance, he’s still glad about that.

Sometimes, sometimes, Liam wonders what he’s doing. Playing in Harry’s stepdad’s bungalow when they can’t get anyone to book them and other times travelling around in the van Louis call’s Buckbeak, not getting any sleep, wrestling each other for control of the radio.

But then. But then they’ve broken down on their way to Sheffield to play at a birthday party and Liam’s this close to screaming at them all to shut the fuck up when Niall pulls Liam into a hug and Zayn does an impression of the guy from the AA on the other end of the phone and suddenly Liam’s laughing, in stitches, bent over himself, and Niall’s still hugging him and he loves it.

He does. It’s the most ridiculous, wonderful, stupid thing he’s ever done. Ever heard of anyone doing. But. He’s got his boys, and he loves it.

And later Harry sings Liam a song he’s been working on about Neville because Harry knows how Liam feels about Neville and it’s. Harry tries to rhyme ‘Trevor’ with ‘together’ and it doesn’t even matter because Harry’s written it for him and he changes what Liam knows is supposed to be ‘Luna’ for ‘Liam’ and Liam doesn’t know what to say.

There’s nothing Liam would change, and Liam kisses Harry’s hair smackingly and says, “I don’t have favourites, but if I did...” and Harry grins his dimples at Liam and it’s all just how Liam wants it to be.

Oh help, look what you made me do. <3

They have a plan. They are going to lull all of the vampires into a false sense of security because no one ever thinks either of them can do any harm. Harry’s all dimples and curly hair and quite frankly Niall looks twelve. No one ever suspects either of them are fearsome vampire slayers. They have an awesome plan for dealing with these situations. Well, it’s awesome up until they have to do any vampire slaying. But they’ve got the convincing the vamps that they’re not a threat down! Now they just need to persuade Liam to teach them how to do the whole fighting and staking thing. Currently they kind of stand there and flail at the vampires which isn’t that impressive. Apart from that one time when Niall nearly took out a vampire’s eye with his flapping hands, it really hasn’t been that effective. One day they will manage to save themselves and won’t need anyone to swoop in and save them. That day is pretty far off though as in training they haven’t actually progressed beyond tripping over their own feet yet. One day though. One day they will defeat a vampire on their own. Liam claims they would that they would improve faster if they spent more time actually training, and less time with their hands down each other’s trousers. Neither of them can quite bring themselves to care though.

Matt/Aiden, there are a lot of things Aiden isn't but one thing he is definitely is a madman with a box.

I kind of think this would be even better if it weren't a Doctor Who fusion/crossover, but anything would be wonderful.

waiting for my rocket to come

Aiden's been doing this thing for about a year and he's pretty sick of Southwalk, but. The tips are better here than anywhere else he's busked and the thing about being the part of a duo that plays a cardboard box and not the guitar is that when the other half of the duo decides to go off to sing songs about Hermione Granger with his band, the guy with the box is sort of... left out on a limb. At least here, Southwalk, he’s not the only madman.

So there’s one evening in late summer, and it’s getting a bit chilly and the sun’s going down, and everything looks a bit beautiful, and Aiden’s singing something that fits all that and he’s got his eyes closed, but he feels something over the music for a second and it’s not something he can explain, but he opens his eyes and looks right into a scruffy looking guy’s eyes as the guy drops a twenty into Aiden’s hat.

Aiden’s hands falter because that’s an insane amount of money and then the guy is blushing and shuffling away and Aiden thinks he’d’ve guessed he was homeless, but no.

Clearly not.

The guy is gone before Aiden finishes his song (and it’s against his nature to stop, that’s not right, there are people who’ve stopped just to listen to him), so Aiden quietly pockets the twenty and carries on with his night.

*

Next time, Aiden’s kept his eyes open and he sees the hat before he sees the guy, and then he gets a good look at him and he hits a note he hadn’t even been going for that makes some lady on his left clap appreciatively and the guy’s eyes go a little wide.

He stands and watches until Aiden finishes his song and Aiden can’t keep his eyes off him.

Then it’s the end of the song and Aiden keeps holding onto his box even though his feet are taking him to the strangely rich guy, and he asks, “Are you a, um, secret millionaire or something?” It just comes out of his mouth and he flushes and bites his lip because he really is an idiot.

The guy laughs, though, shuffles a bit, and then asks, “What’s with the box?”

Aiden shrugs. “My guitarist left me,” He says.

The guys nods, pulls a face that might be supposed to be sad (and Aiden knows stupid faces), and pulls out a twenty, putting it in Aiden’s box. Aiden gapes at him.

“I’m only a secret half-millionaire,” The guy says, “But, you know.”

Then he leaves, and Aiden feels a bit. Woah.

***

It’s getting cold. Aiden’s considering going somewhere for a cup of coffee in a bit, but right now he’s singing his favourite John Mayer song and his box doesn’t currently have any holes and it’s good, he feels into it, and he’s singing with his eyes closed again.

The guitar takes him by surprise.

“Sorry,” The half-millionaire guy says to Aiden’s look of what the fuck was that? “Say no 'f you want.”

He’s standing where Louis had a couple of weeks ago and he’s got a guitar he’s still playing and he’s good at playing and Aiden. He stares for a minute.

“Normal people don’t give tips like you do, you know,” He says, “You won’t make your million like this.”

He gets a shrug and a smile, and Aiden thinks, okay then, because he’s a sucker for a pretty one of those. And it’s not even exactly a pretty smile but... it’s a right one.

“Aiden,” He tells him, holding out his hand. He gets a grin.

“Matt.” Matt shakes his hand and grins and it’s. There’s that.

When Aiden starts the John Mayer song from the beginning Matt joins in, not as flawlessly as Louis but perfect to Aiden’s ears after all this time of just him and his box, and then he starts singing and after a couple of bars Matt joins in with a careful look, like, is this okay?

And they harmonise perfectly. And Aiden thinks, yes. Yes, this is okay.
