Not Forgetting Who I Was

Rating: Explicit
[Main] Ships: Niall Horan/Zayn Malik, Liam Payne/Louis Tomlinson
Niall wakes up in a world where he’s brunet, tattooed, and not in One Direction. In fact, no one’s in One Direction–it doesn’t exist. Determined to find out what’s going on and if any of the other boys are as confused as he is, he leaves whatever life he’s built so far behind in Ireland and sets off for London, his mind set on reuniting the five of them and reclaiming their spot in music history, no matter what it takes.
But the boys don’t know who he is. The boys don’t know anything about their other lives. They’ve got jobs of their own and goals they’ve set, and not everyone is ready to drop it all to chase some wayward dream, regardless of how good it may sound.
So now, for Niall, doing the seemingly impossible’s just become a lot more difficult.
[Or the one where Niall has to bring One Direction back together, even if it means breaking his own heart in the process]
