16) Motel 6 by _HakunaMatata_ (@ _delilahmae_)

15) Knee Socks- Punk Louis Fanfiction by Brokenlines (@Kneesocksfanfic)
She was the sun and the moon, the flowers in bloom, a young virgin in a pair of knee socks. My strongest possession, and my greatest weakness.
The story is technically meant for a mature audience due to the usage of strong words, sexual scenes content and story line. Nevertheless, the story is a perfect contrast between a shy soft spoken girl named Delilah and a ‘dark’, bad boy named Louis. The story line is addictive simply because the writer brings about the effects that both of them have on each other and vividly describes each and every scene.
Some readers classify this story as a ‘pedophile crap’ as Louis Tomlinson falls in love with a sixteen year old. But in my opinion that’s not true as the age difference isnt big and Louis does not use her for sexual purposes- he truly adores her.
With over 3.9 million reads and 99.8k votes, this 33 part ongoing series is set to drive your imagination and tickle your senses.
14) After Trilogy by Anna Todd- Imaginator1d (@Imaginator1D)

Tessa Young is an 18 year old college student with a simple life, excellent grades, and a sweet boyfriend. She always has things planned out ahead of time, until she meets a rude boy named Harry, with too many tattoos and piercings who shatters her plans.
The online phenomena has already hit bookstores worldwide and made it to the New York best sellers list. It is also set to be turned into a motion picture.
The story is wonderfully written and the plot is well laid with careful thinking and planning. The character traits are well established and thoughtful. The story is realistic to some extend and the romance between Harry and Tessa is burning, addictive and sensual fulled with titillation and excitation. Every chapter will always leave you wanting for more.
For a first time writer Anna has done a fantastic job with everything- from the story line to minor details such as punctuation and syntax.
13) Dark- A Harry Styles fanfic by HanRawr (I guess)
The first Dark Harry Fanfic.
The story has striking resemblance to both After and Knee socks. Bo (the female lead character) shares striking resemble personality wise with Delilah from knee socks.
