WELCOME BACK, internet readers, to our monthly instalment of fanfics that are actually really bloody good, and should probably be published as actual books one of these days.

There's no better feeling than finding a brand new fanfic that you instantly become obsessed with, but as anyone who reads it on the regular will know, that's really not an easy task.

Stories that might start out alright often descend into something totally ridic, and to find one hidden internet gem, you have to wade through a shedload of cheesy, predictable romance, beyond weird fantasies and a whole lot of badly written smut.

That's where we come in every month, bringing you 10 brill titles for various fandoms that are actually worth reading. And this February, it's all about the 5SOS fics.

1. Paint You Wings by rdysasi (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Ashton Irwin

Any other bonus deets?: It's just hit one million reads, and the title's inspired by the song by 5SOS's real life pals, All Time Low dontcha know. ATL and a story about Ash - what more could you ask for?

"All you needed was for someone to paint you wings; to set you free from the memories that tied you down."

2. Drunk Words, Sober Thoughts by AudreyEve (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Luke Hemmings

Any other bonus deets? This one won in the 2015 Wattys and has had way over three million views, so that's pretty much your guarantee that it's gonna be a fantastic read.

Luke is popular. He's good looking, he gets invited to all the parties, and his peers worship the ground he walks on. But with popularity comes limitations. Don't do that, don't watch this, you like which band? As Luke rises on the social chain, the harder it is to keep up, and the less of himself he becomes. That is until Ari Quiroz decides to step into his life. If drunk words are sober thoughts, then Luke Hemmings is in for one hell of a hangover.

3. Bridesmaid by redsvelvet (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Calum Hood

Any other bonus deets?: Bridesmaid has a pretty dedicated fanbase with nearly 5 million reads notched up, and one reader even made a playlist especially designed for the story. Pretty cool eh?

At 20-years-old, Alli Bartel never expected to be the bridesmaid of her best friend's wedding, and not just any bridesmaid, the maid of honour. What happens when she gets paired up with the best man, who also happens to be her former high school crush?

4. Walls by fluffycashton (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Michael Clifford

Any other bonus deets?: Well one of the comments is from a reader saying that they're re-reading Walls for the sixth time at midnight on a school night because they love it so bloody much, so that'll probably be you in a couple of weeks too. 4.4 million reads? Casual.

Maddie and Michael are just two kids who figured each other out when they felt that no one else could.

5. Five Minutes by bunnycorcoran (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Luke Hemmings

Any other bonus deets?: Another winner of the Wattys 2015, bunnycorcoran is a mega popular author in the fanfiction community who's always sitting in the most popular list. This one's racked up 7.5 million reads because it's just THAT good.

Take one awkward lead singer, one cynical blonde, a dash of desperation, one mixtape, and five minutes of acting - and you get one interesting night. All it took was five minutes to start one hell of an adventure.

6. Shego by bunnycorcoran (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Calum Hood

Any other bonus deets?: The lead female role in this one was inspired by Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui, and the story even has its own movie-style trailer to get you all kinds of obsessed.

Artemis Cruz: gorgeous, talented, and extremely problematic. Calum Hood: gorgeous, talented, and extremely problematic. Artemis and Calum: hedonistic, reckless, and wild.

7. Black Magic by bytheangelhemmings (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: All of 5SOS

Any other bonus deets?: This one's a little bit different from the usual boy meets girl fanfic scenario. It's dark and verging on the horror genre with a storyline full of mystery and the supernatural, so if you're here for a love story then this one's not for you.

When Audrey White is moved from New York City to the small town of Riker, Texas, the last thing she expects to find is a mystery. She soon learns that behind the unsolved cases and urban legend of the 1960s Black Magic Murders is a terrifying amount of truth. A truth that Audrey and her newfound friends are a part of. Now the Black Magic Murderer is back, and unless they can stop it, history will repeat itself.

8. Fanboy by overluked (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Michael Clifford

Any other bonus deets?: With over 1 million reads, Fanboy is the perfect story for anyone who's suffered with living the struggles of fangirl life. This time it's the other way round and Michael is YOUR fanboy - so swap the he for she and it's pretty relatable.

"She hurts me in a way no one else can. It hurts because I think I love her. It hurts even more because she'll never know how much she means to me. But it tears me up inside because she doesn't even know I exist."

9. A Little Like Fate by hopefulcaroline (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Ashton Irwin

Any other bonus deets?: Constantly near the top of the fanfiction charts, this one's a firm favourite with Ashton girls all over the world. It's a bit of an emotional rollercoaster and you probably WILL cry, just FYI. Keep tissues close at all times.

Amelia and Ashton were the best of friends; there was not much anyone could do to break the two apart. That is, until one day when Amelia's family moves away unexpectedly. No warning was given and no goodbyes were shared. Fast forward three years and almost everything has changed; almost. Amelia finds herself back in Australia and back in her old life but can things go back to being the way they used to be? With a big secret hidden in plain sight, Amelia is about to find out.

10. Remember To Forget by _smilelikeniall (read it on Wattpad HERE)

Who does it focus on?: Luke Hemmings

Any other bonus deets?: Oh just the 15 MILLION reads on this one, casual. It was a winner at the 2014 Wattys so a bit of an old classic for 5SOS fans now, and the comments section is FULL of people going back and re-reading for second or even third times. 

"Why do you like rain so much?" "It reminds me that I'm still alive."
