4. Afire Love|Blurry Face

*Notes for other readers: Afire Love is a 5 Seconds of Summer one-shot done based off the Ed Sheeran song 'Afire Love'*

 

Review 

Can I just say how ironic it is that I was listening (and sobbing) to this song earlier today? Ed Sheeran is my love and his songs make up practically half my music playlist so I got super excited when I got your request! So I'm going to be brutally honest here, I LOVED this. I'm not usually into 5 Seconds of Summer fics but you portrayed all the characters in a way that it wasn't super obvious to people who are not aware of the band members' names. I love the descriptiveness of the story and how you described Michael's emotions, I felt his pain deeply and found myself actually tearing up right along with him at some points.

Another thing I liked was how you divided the one-shot up. I liked how closely you stuck to the lyrics with the events going on in the story. Your words formed an image in my head almost exactly how the physical lyrics do when I'm listening to the song, so very well-done! I did notice a few grammar issues but they were so tiny that it didn't hurt the flow of the story whatsoever. One recommendation I have is to put the song lyrics in italics, otherwise it might look like they're part of Michael's thoughts to a person who hasn't heard the song the story's based on.

 

Overall rating: 9.5/10

I absolutely loved this and thoroughly enjoyed reading it! It was one of the best one-shots I've read on here to be honest. Thank you so much for your request, I hope my review was helpful!
