hardparade: (misc; alex & charlie)
Oh my god, how great is it when a fic idea just comes to you out of nowhere and then you spend the whole day writing? I mean, ignoring the whole bunch of other ideas that I've been thinking about for ages and can't seem to write a single word of, and also the fact that this idea kept me up most of last night and I am now exhausted. My brain was just happily plotting away all on its own, and every now and then I had to get up and scribble in a notebook so I wouldn't forget things. But a part of me really loves it when that happens—I kinda like being caught off-guard with inspiration.

Plus, I've wanted to write Alex Day/Charlie McDonnell (or nerimon/charlieissocoollike) for AGES now, even before Youtube slash was an actual thing. It's always been complicated because a) I always thought I wouldn't be able to do it justice, and b) they feel much more like real people to me than the celebrities I write about, plus they are actually aware of the fanfiction and have been vocal about it, so that makes me feel skeevy. Buuut. They are massively adorable and their bromance is the loveliest thing in the world, and I really cannot ignore an idea when it comes to me the way this one did.

So here we go.


Title: contact high (or, five times alex and charlie shared a bed)
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Alex Day/Charlie McDonnell, hints of Alex Day/Tom Milsom
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Real person slash, and...I think that's it. That's amazing, I usually have like eight warnings to list.
Summary: Alex likes to keep a mental list of Things That Make Charlie Uncomfortable, just for reference.
A/N: Various bits of this, like the lampshade hats and the Amsterdam trip, are taken from the guys' videos. (How great is it that the 'forced to share hotel bed' trope actually happened to Alex and Charlie in real life?) Also, the 20 Questions game mentioned is something like this for those who have no clue what I'm talking about. Everything else is utterly made-up though, of course.

The first time they share a bed is the first time Alex visits Charlie in Bath. )
