Fic rec: just a memory (and all that we could've been)
Summary: “I think - there’s something wrong. With Harry’s memory,” Louis says, and someone mutes the TV.
(or: Harry wakes up in a reality in which he and Louis are very much together. Which is pretty awesome. Or - it would be. If Harry could remember any of it. It’s not amnesia, because he remember the last two years just fine, thank you very much. He just doesn’t remember being with Louis).

Review: I love parallel universe fics and this one does it so perfectly. It’s subtle, evocative, and all the boys and their dynamic are characterized so masterfully. There are snippets of a hypothetical world when Larry have come out, and it’s hopeful and beautiful. Then you get to the end and oh my God, my heart is still aching. Read it and you’ll know what I mean.
