H & L : ONE OF THEM HAS KIDS
We Are Honey And The Bee : (41k) It isn’t his fault though, it is entirely the fault of whichever gods thought it would be a good idea to taunt Louis by dangling a curly haired boy in front of him with a mouth that can’t possibly be as soft as it looks, a mouth that requires further inspection with Louis’ own mouth. Unfortunately, Louis absolutely cannot do that, because it would go against all rules and guidelines in the Golden Handbook of Nanny and Employee Etiquette that he’s pretty sure exists.au where harry plays rugby at uni, louis needs to hire a nanny, and life is one big cliche.
Like A Car Crash : (17k) The one where Louis is a doctor,Harry has a car accident and two kids,and they meet.
Your Flaws Upon Your Sleeve : (37k) Harry is the charming nineteen year old law school drop out that lives five minutes away from Louis’ home, and Louis has a bad history with relationships and a four year old daughter he’ll protect with his life. They meet in a grocery store and it’s inevitable, really.Basically the au where Harry hides in strange places to hide his boners and Louis makes a lot of horrible assumptions. Niall gets high a lot, Zayn doesn’t have as much wisdom as he thinks he does, and Liam feels like a badass in a police uniform usually. Featuring very few surprise guests.
Didn’t Think It Would Work Out : (16k) There was no way he could let it happen, the prospect of working with Harry for the next two months or so seemed like a nightmare specially designed for him. From hell. By the devil himself, probably. Perfect torture, fit amazingly well with the self-destructive path he’d been on for a year now, Louis clearly had to say no.“‘Course, yeah, I’ll clear it with Simon then, brilliant, cheers mate,” Fuck.
Or, Louis is a primary school teacher, Harry has a 7-year-old son in his class, Louis has a 1-year-old crush on Harry, and they have to put on the school’s Christmas play. Brilliant.
Just Lay With Me : (10k) In which Louis is the coach of Harry’s daughter’s football team and Harry likes Louis’ bum. One day there’s a parent football game and Louis, just maybe, starts hitting on Harry and, just maybe, Harry gives in.
All Too Human : (166k) Louis has a 3 year old son and works at a daycare while getting his education degree.Harry’s a fresh face Popstar with the world in his hands.They meet over applesauce and hide n’ go seek.
I need home (our tangled bones) : (68k) Louis runs a record label and Harry is his daughter’s new nanny. Over the course of a year, Harry helps Louis learn what it really is to be a father and somehow they find an unexpected home in each other.
Or, the kid fic where Louis wants to make Harry a star, Zayn just needs everyone to stop being stupid, Niall laughs his arse off at everything, Liam attempts to keep things in order and Harry takes a chance.
Nothing Else But Right Here : (35k) Louis sighs and gives himself a mental pep talk as he smooths his jumper down over his hips. He can do this. He can resist the draw of Harry Styles, because he is a responsible, mature adult, and as much as he wants to tangle his fingers in that mess of hair and map those ridiculous tattoos with his tongue, he does not want to get his daughter’s favorite teacher fired.
We’re Afire Love : (11k) Harry and Louis are best friends. Harry has the whole “crush” thing under control, honestly. Until, of course, he moves in with Louis and his baby.
We Were Made To Love : (16k) “Everything all sorted? Need help with the buckles? I know they’re a bit tricky in this compartment.”
The voice startles Louis out of his daze, and he turns toward the voice to let him know he figured it out. When he catches sight of the owner of the voice, though, his response dies in his throat. Whatever he had imagined the conductor of a children’s train that rides around the shopping centre in Leeds would look like, this is certainly not it.
Leaning through the window, arms folded across the sill, is a green-eyed angel with cherry red lips stretched wide in a smile and dimples flirting in his cheeks. A black conductor’s hat is the only confirmation that this is not some gorgeous stranger who’s come to flirt with Louis through the window of a children’s train, but is just a man doing his job.
[or, Harry drives a kiddie train in the shopping centre for the summer and is obsessed with babies, and Louis never stood a chance.]
Let This One Gift Last Forever : (10k) harry plays santa at the mall every year, and one day he meets a quirky little girl who instantly captures his heart. it doesn’t take long for her father to do the same.
Marking Up The Atmosphere : (119k) At the age of twenty, Harry deals with things expected to occur at his age: student loans, instant meals, electricity bills, and the constant, incessant presence of never ending coursework.That, and the job of raising his six year old daughter and avoiding the charm of a young, successful, and very off-limits Louis Tomlinson.
Ready For The Afterglow : (11k) It’s a summer job. It’s supposed to be easy, hanging out with a rambunctious 6 year-old while his father is at work. The father just happens to be Louis Tomlinson, footballer extraordinaire, recently divorced and even more recently out of the closet. Who’s really, really fit. It’s nothing Harry can’t handle. It’ll be great.
All I Want For Christmas Is : (17k) With Harry up against his side, his little four year old snuggled in his lap like it’s her favourite place, Louis could really believe they’re a real little family, off to their chalet to spend Christmas in the snow. A real little family where Louis would have the luxury of kissing Harry under mistletoe and rolling around in the fresh snow with him, taking him upstairs to his bedroom and fucking him to keep him warm.
(harry is louis’ daughters’ au pair. they spend christmas in austria)
You Gave Me Butterflies ( You Had Me At Hello) : (4k) It’s been seven years since his last relationship, five years since his last date. Louis hasn’t had a single crush since adopting his daughter, doesn’t think he’d even know how to ask out a cute boy now. Not that he wants to ask Emma’s school teacher out for a drink or anything – that would be unprofessional. But surely he’s allowed to think Emma’s school teacher is super fit, right?
[ or the one where Louis is a single father and also a struggling writer and Harry is his daughter’s kindergarten teacher and maybe also Louis’ muse ]
Looking For A Way Home : (5k) Something about this, about Harry in particular, feels so right. He’s a mere stranger, but Louis can swear he can see himself spending the rest of his life with him.
Or an AU where Louis takes his 6 year old daughter, Rosalie, to Disneyland, finding it a little more fun than he expected.
Call Me Baby : (37k) Louis moves to Holmes-Chapel after his parents die in a car crash. He has custody of his five sisters, and it is through the youngest he meets Harry Styles, a preschool teacher. Life just got a lot more complicated for Louis.
