So, I started working on two different one-shots for too good is true, and have a third one planned.
Is it bad to say that I got feels from my own work?
Anyway, I’m hoping to have one of them up later, and I’m really excited.
They won’t be long, depending, but they’re glimpses into the character’s lives. They’re important little things as well, and while I’m not writing and posting these chronologically, I’ll put them in order in the masterpost.
I also wanted to say that if anyone wants to prompt me with an idea to add to the universe (or just a prompt in general - anon is on too), please feel free to do so. I’m pretty much open to writing anything unless I state otherwise (I try to be as openminded as I can be), and will definitely let you know if I’m uncomforable with anything.
So yeah, prompts? ;)
I believe I have just finished the last chapter of too good is true.
I’m going to cry.
So, I can’t post it right now because well, I haven’t edited it just yet, but I wanted to let you know that an update is coming soon, and I’ve got too many feelings right now, and I’m just sad. Ugh god, why. XD
I’m going to try my best to put it out tonight, and if not, definitely tomorrow. I’ve got company over tonight and because this chapter is really long, which usually takes me longer to edit, of course, I may not get done with it in time before people start arriving.
So yeah. Anyway, I’ll be making a post after I post the chapter as well with a whole lot of feels and thanks and stuff but until then, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Even to those of you that only like the chapters and to those who simply just read it, it’s been awesome and fjalskdfj.
Definitely need to save this for later.
Anyway, awkward end of post time.
-hugs all of you-
Ok, can i just say YOU ARE AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL AND JUST EVERYTHING EVEN REMOTELY GOOD IN THIS WORLD AND JUST KNOW THAT CUZ I LOVE YOU. yes that is the truth and don’t deny it. Tons of authors don’t update for weeks and sometimes months and you just churn out unbelievable chapters like it’s a piece of cake (but really isn’t that really hard?) and you update at least once a week, actually i think twice? your wondrous. ok on to the chapter, i don’t know what happened to me. seriously i don’t.
i knew i claire was evil, you just gave me another reason to hate her (what’s funny is my bf has the same name and she is like the nicest person ever, weird) and Oliver is just grating my nerves and THIS IS JUST A STORY. onto Ziam, just the whole thing. I love how you portray Zayn and how you show he is learning things and he does care and he does have ambitions among other things. Though im not sure about his mother (i can understand her view but she’s wrong) i love how you made him stand up for himself, kinda like Niall was telling him to.
Liam is just so realistic in this story too, i can see him trying to get Zayn but he is a human so he wants to understand but not do the cliche thing of just thinking everything will be ok if you forgive and forget because there are problems. i have read fanfics like that and it honestly ruins the story to a degree for me. i also like that you used the race card because it’s there and it’s true. (god, i love everything and srry spamming)
also the ryan plus Zayn scene was just lovely & Zayn not listening to the radio because of liam is so damn perfect i just read that part over again cuz that was just so original & ugh, THE FEELS. also the angst is perf, in both cases but the ending was horrible (aka fantastic) & i am so excited that you will be returning to this universe BEST PREZZIE EVER & the upcoming stuff is gonna be amazing i bet (im running out of good adjectives) & i can already taste how great the last one will be :D
I got say this first because when you click the read more button, there’s a lot to read. ;x I kind of went overboard. Shit.
To anyone else, you might wanna read too because there’s a lot of talking about the ~deeper side of the story - if that’s your thing, at least. ;D
Whelp, I believe I’ve just finished chapter eight of too good is true. I still have to edit it and all that, but it should be up by thursday at the latest. I’m hoping I can finish editing by tonight and have it up by then, but I don’t want to promise anything because I hate not keeping promises.
Also, it looks like I’ve managed to condense down chapter ten, which means I think I’ll be able to fit the rest of the story into one more chapter, making too good is true nine chapters total.
Oh my god, I’m going to cry. ;/
Anyway, just wanted to give you guys a heads up.
So this chapter was unbelievable. Ya correct word. I just really love the way you make everything realistic from describing the city to writing the characters. You don’t make them seem like characters but real people with varying emotions and reactions. I also loved the way you didn’t use ‘fuck’ in what 3k words of smut? It seems so overused and the fact that zayn and Liam may or may not realize that they are in love or getting there doesn’t stop the fact that they are making love and not just having sex. Not that using fuck is wrong but not using it just makes it more intimate and stuff. And also it makes me think subconsciously they know it’s more than a one night thing and it won’t end there. Oh god I’m over analyzing everything, SORRY. And I also like the Larry dynamic a lot and comparing the whole touching thing with ziam. And I don’t mind you publishing it, actually I’m proud that I have good comments or slightly better than my usual ones.
I just have a feeling that the watch is gonna have a major part in the next chapter? Correct me if I’m wrong but I just have this hunch that it’s gonna be really bad on Zayn’s part, like really bad. Idk but it seems like it or I might just be crazy.
I combined your asks together so I could reply to the whole thing in a new post. So…
Okay, you’re the bestest person ever, and I don’t mind you sending me all this, at all. XD
So first off, I’m sorry you couldn’t finish it until now, but yay now that you have and 9:30 isn’t really early because I woke up at that time too (I’ve been sleeping in til like 12 the past several weeks but college is on monday so I can’t do that anymore, bummer.)
And you my dear, deserve an award for incredible analyzing skills because you know what, I hadn’t even realized I didn’t use the word fuck in that 3-4k of smut. Holy shit wow. I actually just went back to the chapter and searched for the word fuck to see if what you said was true, and I only used the word twice or so in the smut scenes, but not actually when describing the sex.
So, thanks for pointing that out and noticing it because wow. I’m quite proud of myself for that actually. I can tell you that wasn’t intentional whatsoever. I think I may have done it subconsciously seeing as how I wanted something slightly raunchy, but still sweet, if that makes sense
And, I felt slightly bad at first about possibly describing too much detail, but I wanted the focus to be on that night and exactly what it looked like because I have this image in my head that Zayn will remember it for the rest of his life - exactly what kind of weather it was, how the area around him looked; basically remembering this because it’s such a huge event for him.
Also, I completely understand what you’re saying about the word fuck, and I agree with you. I don’t think I’ve read a delicate sex scene in awhile and even when someone tries to, they use the wrong set of words to desribe it and it kind of throws the overall mood off.
But oh my god. I can’t even believe I didn’t notice that. XD That’s going to take me awhile to get over, lol.
Anyway, I included the little part of Larry in there, especially Zayn noticing a difference between him and Louis when they’re dancing together because it just made sense to me. It was definitely something I thought of last minute, but I’m really glad I used it because I didn’t want to describe how they wouldn’t fit together just based on personatliy, which a lot of people do in fics. Not to say that’s wrong in any way, but I think touch is a huge deal, more than people give it credit for. You’ll notice I also included a line in there that Harry and Louis stand so close together when talking to people just to let one another know that they’re there. It’s all because of the distinct feeling you get when you know you have someone on your side, and I made that contrast quite clear (hopefully) that not only does Zayn/Louis not fit together, but Zayn feels stiff in his arms because there’s a certain level of uncertainty on Louis’ part.
K, long description there, and I’m not sure if that makes any sense.
And we’ll see about that watch. ;x I’m totally not good at keeping things a sercret, but next chapter is well… things happen and fjalkdjf.
I’ve got about 1.5k written for it already, and I’m hoping I can get it to at least 3-4k by the end of today just because of school on monday and I want to get as much writing in as I can before classes. I think there’s about 3 chapters left and I’m determined to finish this fic by the end of August. I dunno if that’ll happen, but that would be amazing because I’ve never in my life written this much before. This is about 56k of words total so far, with still 3 chapters left, and I can’t even believe it.
Sorry, random chatter now, but ugh you’re just perfect and I thank you again and I just want to hug you forever.
Is there such a thing as too much smut?
Because like, in the next chapter of too good is true, there’s about 3.5k of it. ~lol
I’m debating on cutting some of it out, but there’s a lot of inner monologue stuff wrapped within it, which is why it’s longer than normal.
Oh, by the way, there will be an update later today (hopefully). I say later because it’s almost 3 in the morning right now. XD
I’ve got my priorities straight, don’t I?
I just can’t right now. omg. I have major Ziam feels at the moment because of this damn fanfic chapter I’m writing. Ugh, it’s doing all sorts of things to me.
Quick update for Too Good is True.
I’ve decided to split chapter six in two, meaning what I have written right now will be chapter six and the rest of it will be chapter seven.
I’ve done this because of length and also because what I have written right now wouldn’t flow well with the rest of what I had planned for the chapter.
So, with that, I’ve got chapter six written. I’ve just got to re-read it, fix any mistakes and all that fun editing stuff and it should be out by tomorrow or Tuesday.
It’s a bit of a filler chapter, unfortunately, but I can guarantee you that chapter seven will completely make up for that.

Title: Too Good Is True
Pairing: Liam/Zayn (Ziam) with side Harry/Louis (Larry)
Summary: Based on the movie Maid in Manhattan. Zayn is a manservant (actually he’s a maid, but it’s what Niall calls him because one, there isn’t a male equivalent to the term maid and two, it sounds far sexier than what the job actually requires). Liam is the unfortunate third wheel in the band One Direction. Harry and Louis are in love. And Niall is a butler.
