It’s different, and Louis knows that, because Harry’s got so much riding on this - a career and a future and his whole life. There’s talk of him going first overall in the draft, of entering the NFL after only two years in college, of going to New York or Seattle or Green Bay, and Louis wants to be there for him, wants to support him and help him make decisions, but he also kind of wants to pin him to the bed and cry and scream, What about me what about me what about me?
(au. Harry’s the star quarterback and Louis is about to graduate. It’s a heartbreak waiting to happen.)
Notes: if you haven’t read this please treat yourself to reading it omg i? i felt so many things reading this fic i don’t even know what to say -Z
“So, Louis,” Harry turns to him properly now, posture completely at ease, “You seem like an agreeable fellow. How do you propose we entertain ourselves until such a time as we can get on a plane, and get the fuck out of Knock?”
Harry and Louis’ flight is delayed, and they’re the only ones to not get the memo. Cue a night spent in a tiny Irish airport with only each other for company, and the hand of Fate delivering a swift smack on the wrist and a demand to try again.
Notes: this was so great omg this fic was just so great in every way -Z
Louis is terribly in love, Niall is Irish, Liam is a conundrum, Zayn is stormy, and Harry just really wants to find bigfoot.
Or the au where it’s summer and Harry’s bright idea is to get his friends together to hunt for bigfoot, and Louis tries not to find it hopelessly endearing.
Notes: this fic is so endearingly silly and sweet i can’t even believe it’s actually a thing it’s so cute and sweet omg i could just die from cavities-Z
"So how old does that make you?"
It takes Harry a second. “Twenty.”
Louis arches an eyebrow. No matter how morally dubious that makes him, this boy is not twenty years old. “Bullshit.”
Harry pinches his bottom lip between two long fingers. “Eighteen.”
"What is this, a missile launch?"
Harry giggles. “Seventeen.”
Or, Harry is 17 at a college party, and Louis is not Brian Kinney.
Notes: everything ren writes is gold if you haven’t read it yet, go do so -Z
high school sweethearts to uni sweethearts, harry is a baseball player for Michigan University, and louis is his nanny boyfriend
Notes: same title different fic!!!! equally as cute!!! this was so cute!!! i’m so s o endeared by harry and louis with children please excuse meeee -Z
“So here’s the thing,” he starts. “I didn’t mean what I said a few weeks ago to like, hurt your feelings or anything. If you like painting your nails, then you should do that, and not like, care if anyone else doesn’t like it because their opinions shouldn’t matter, you know?” Louis takes a breath, finally glancing over to see the boy wide-eyed and pink-cheeked. On a whim, he adds, “And like, I noticed you scraping it off and you haven’t been wearing any and I think you should because that’s what you like.”
or an au where harry paints his nails and drinks strawberry milk and is too nervous for it to be nothing and louis’ just trying to figure out whats wrong with him
Notes: this was really nice! i liked it a lot! you should give it a try :) -Z
Trigger warnings for past rape and abuse.
We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace, make it everlasting so nothing’s incomplete. It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity. As long as we’re together, there’s no place I’d rather be.
It’s a Tuesday night in August. Harry and Louis have a routine.
Notes: this was ridiculously cute like jfc talk about cavity inducing fluff -Z
AU in which baker!Harry and famous!Louis meet and the spark is pretty fucking alive. 2.4k of stupidness, enjoy x
