anonymous asked:

Do you know of any fics where Harry and Louis have a different power dynamic? Like the TopGun AU where Harry is the student pilot and Louis is the teacher. Or like the pirate AU where Harry is the captain and Louis is the pirate. Kinda like a power difference I guess, where they're not really supposed to fall for each other but they do anyway. I hope that makes sense. :/

Ah, the Top Gun AU was SO GOOD, wasn’t it! And I love Pirate Larry fics. Anyway, yeah, I’ve read quite a few of those sorts of fics…it’s hard to find ones that aren’t basically bad porn. LOL! But here are few that I like. LMK if this is what you’re looking for:

Wear It Like A Crown by zarah5 - Prince Harry and “Fixer”/Employee Louis

As You Are by zarah5 - Pop star/XFactor Judge Louis and contestant Harry

I’ll Crash Until You Notice Me by stylinsoncity - Boss Louis/Employee Harry

And down the long and silent street by whimsicule - Rich Harry/Poor Louis

tangled up in you by missandrogyny -  Popstar Harry/employee Louis (the professional cuddler fic)

You Drive Me Round The Bend by TheCellarDoor - struggling musician Harry and rich Louis (it’s hate to love and they also work together)

Love Is A Rebellious Bird  by gloria_andrews and 100percentsassy - Concertmaster Louis/Conductor Harry

feel the chemicals burn in my bloodstream - by togetherwecouldbealright - journalist Harry/Prince Louis (it’s also a Magical Realism fic)

Hold Me Closer by balanceds - Principal dancer Louis/Guest Choreographer Harry (Ballet AU)

Swim In The Smoke by whoknows - I’m not sure if this is the pirate fic you’re referring to, but this is Captain Harry/Prisoner Louis (it’s also an A/B/O fic which inherently has some power dynamics involved)

You’ll Breathe Me In (You Won’t Release) - by LoadedGunn - so, I know a lot of people hate this fic because of the power imbalance and because Harry is underage in it. But you asked for power imbalance fics and this fits that description to a T (and it’s very well written). But please read the tags. Driving instructor Louis/Student Harry

All you can eat by harrysprostate - I don’t know, this is pure smut, but it’s teacher Louis (also vampire Louis) and human student Harry (he’s 19 though). I read it ages ago, it’s probably smutty af but I can’t recall what the writing is like. LOL!

don’t even need to touch me, baby, just breathe on me by ballsdeepinjesus - more teacher Louis and student Harry. More smut. LOL!

Loving You Is Free by littlelouishiccups - Sugar Daddy/Record Exec Louis and Sugar Baby/Grad Student Harry. 

so hot, give me your gasoline by ballsdeepinjesus (I’ve recc’d 3 of this author’s fics today. Good lord. LOL!) - Actor Louis/Fan Harry. 

Bring Your Body Baby (I Could Bring You Fame) by boyfriendstagram - Pro Football star Louis/Water Boy Harry

(Take You Back Where You Belong) This Could be Our Favorite Song by orphan_account - older Louis (35)/Younger Harry (18)

Right By Your Side by mezziedemo - Marine Biologist/Therapist Harry and Client Louis

Be My Little Good Luck Charm by 100percentsassy - this is probably not quite a power difference fic because it’s pro golfer Harry/Sportscaster Louis, but it’s so good I’m including it. 

So, I hope there are a few in there that fit what you’re looking for. And if anyone has others to recommend, feel free! Thanks for the ask! 

Check out my first fic on AO3!


Take My Breath Away

There is a prestigious school in the British Royal Navy classified as Premier Delta - or as it is known by its flyers, 1D. These select pilots are an elite set of Naval lieutenants who are trained in the skill of aggressive aerial combat. They are instruments of war, trained in times of peace. They are dogfighters, relentless and fearless in their mission to protect their beloved country. From their lofty vantage, they are always watching, waiting, and ready to lay it all on the line.

Lt. Harry Styles, call sign Sparrow, is a prodigy when it comes to flying. The owner of an unrivaled Naval pedigree, being a pilot was always written in the stars for Harry. With his trusty RIO, Lt. Niall Horan, Harry has made an unprecedented ascension in the ranks of the Naval aerial combat elite, and has been recruited to the esteemed Premier Delta flight school, carrying on his family’s legacy. What he finds there are unexpected friendships, perilous challenges, and something beyond what he ever thought possible. Because as his father had always told him, before the great Captain Styles went tragically missing in combat, you don’t fall in love with the sky, you fall in love with what keeps you on the ground.



Huge thanks to @nasalouis for making the manips of Louis and Harry in the artwork above. It honestly inspired this fic. Very talented artist and super sweet!



Zone Of Endless.

An Artificial Intelligence program initiated by the Belkan Greymen and Gründer Industries that covertly gathered data during the 1997 Usean Coup d'etat.

There is no ADF-1 Falken in Assault Horizon, but the Shinden II works as a nice looking substitute IMO.

Bry’s theory:

It is suggested that the Usean Rebels captured the Z.O.E. prototypes, including the ADF-01 FALKEN.
However, I would propose that they were actually still under the control of the Belkans and simply mascurading as Usean rebel forces.
Consider if you will that the Usean rebel pilots don’t seem to know anything about them, which is particularly highlighted when the Z.O.E. F/A-18E Super Hornet appears during the engagement between the Scarface and Cocoon Squadrons.
The leader of Cocoon Squadron, Camilla “Catwalk” Almeida specifically asks if the Z.O.E. aircraft is with the allied forces. The only response is that it is using a Rebel IFF code, but that alone does not mean it is actually operated by them.

Super Speculation:

So why is Z.O.E., and by extension the Belkans, so interested in Phoenix?
I would put forth the possibility that Phoenix could, in fact, be Cipher.
The origins of the Z.O.E. program is in the data recovered from the dogfight between Cipher and Larry “Solo-Wing Pixy” Folke at the end of Ace Combat Zero.
Cipher subsequently disappeared completely after the Belkan War, as if he never existed.
The games narrator even states during the ending that its doubtful he actually existed at all.

That’s actually unusual for an Ace Combat protagonist. 
There are no doubts that Mobius 1, Garuda 1 or Gryphon 1 existed and even continued to serve following the end of their respective games (Blaze and the Razgriz is a bit more ambiguous, but that’s all part of the story in itself).

It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that the battle with his former wingman and buddy left Cipher, aka the Demon Lord, troubled enough to abandon this identity.

Enter “Phoenix”. A skilled and experienced mercenary pilot who appears almost immediately after Cipher vanishes.
The call sign itself means rebirth.

Now Cipher was possibly the greatest ace to have ever flown the skies of Strangereal. His track record against the elite squadrons of the Belkan Air Force, “A World Without Boundaries” and taking out Solo-Wing Pixy’s ADFX-02 Morgan in a lowly F-15C.
Feats that call into question the achievements of the other protagonists in the series.

Z.O.E. needed data from the greatest aces, data that had it’s origins with Cipher.
If the Belkan’s realised that Cipher = Phoenix, then it would make even more sense for the Z.O.E. to go out of it’s way to engage Phoenix and continue gathering data from the pilot that crushed the best that the Belkan Air Force had to offer.
Yet it was never enough to beat the original.

Just a theory
