Youth ~A 1D Fanfiction~

Lena is all work and no play... Lena, age twenty-one, just wants to graduate college and get a good job and off the sublease for the apartment, maybe even save up for a house. But balancing adult responsibilities and a younger sibling is tough work. So when her little sister Sarah barges into her room screaming about winning a radio contest to meet the boyband One Direction, she's less than pleased. Especially because a legal guardian needs to accompany Sarah to England. But even though Lena's got her plate full, she soon finds that you can work hard and play hard, maybe even find a little love in a city like London.


24. Author's Note

I hope you've enjoyed this fanfiction. Originally only supposed to be 15,000 words, I expanded to 27,000 because the characters spoke to me so much. It's always nice when that happens. It was heavily inspired by the song Youth by Daughter, with all the chapter titles coming from lyrics in the song.

My goal for this story was to show personal growth with a lot of the characters and their relationships, from Lena and Sarah to Lottie and Louis, to Louis and Niall.

I also wanted Lena to be a strong female lead, though of course with her own faults, like being too stubborn or not knowing when to rely on others. She's not a girl with many friends, but she does value loyalty above all else.

Meanwhile, Louis is quite popular, but wishes he wasn't sometimes, especially with the cameras in his house and the panic room installed in the basement. He can't lead a normal life, though Lena gives him a taste of it. My goal was to take him from that often glamorized celebrity status, and humanize him.

I hope this inspires you all to go forth and write, whether it's fiction or fanfiction or nonfiction.
