- Judge’s Favorite , by Bean (pinklmn656) : “Guess I have to choose my husband don’t I? Or I’ll sleep outside after tonight, I’m afraid,” Harry said shrugging his shoulders. “You’d better Styles,” Louis replied.“That’s Tomlinson, please,” Harry corrected and the crowd went wild around them. ***Based off the prompt where Louis is a judge on The Voice UK and Harry is promoting his single, so he pretends to audition. None of the judges know, especially Louis, who thinks that he is in Paris doing promotional work.
Larry kind of future fic (3.5k), aka the best prompt to get some great Backstage smut. ^^
- Nameless Night , by green_feelings (aka @sadamenoito ) : For their 18th birthday, every person receives a letter that reads a simple date. That is the date you’ll meet your soulmate. Harry and Louis have different beliefs, live in different worlds and have different dreams, hopes and fears. Yet, they’re not so different from each other when it comes to love. When their paths cross, there is no doubt they belong together. Except for that one, essential difference: they didn’t receive the same date. Or, a fic about differences that make no difference at all: Harry and Louis are soulmates. In every way possible. Featuring Niall as a role model, and Liam and Zayn as a different kind of role models.
Larry Soulmate AU (155k). Holy fucking hell. This fic is a lot of things : angsty (oh god), smutty (kind of share that), fluffy (myyy heeeaaaart), absolutely fantastic and really very well written. And i’m usually not even a big fan of the soulmate thing. Read this.
- Somebody Like You , by @achilleus : “Oh look at the time,” Louis says quickly, turning on his heel and rushing to the greenhouse door. He twists the handle and tugs on it a few times, yanking progressively harder. “Oi, Harry, if you’re the president, then you’re in charge of this shack, right? So why won’t the fucking door open?”Harry carefully steps over the mess on the ground and heads to the door, giving the handle a twist and pulling as hard as he can. It’s a futile attempt because the door doesn’t budge, not that Harry thought it would. There’s no way Louis would have known to be careful with the door, and with the wind howling outside right now, shutting it gently would be near-impossible.“It’s shut,” Harry says, giving it a final, firm yank. The door doesn’t move an inch.Or, Harry and Louis are locked in a greenhouse.
Larry Uni AU (5.7k) with footballer Louis and Gardener Harry. absolutely cute! No smut.
- If You Wanna Try Me On , by @zimriya : To be fair, Harry’d been half asleep when Niall convinced him to put in his CV in the first place. Like, Harry wants to be a proper serious journalist–he’s not about to give up that dream in favour of becoming a personal assistant at a fashion magazine, or…whatever. Harry’s not actually all that sure what Tomlinson Styles even is, beyond his ticket to fame or any of the other things Niall’d spouted off at him, but when he shows up for the interview and is unceremoniously shoved into an office with the Tomlinson part of that equation, all Harry can really think about is that he would like to be a Tomlinson-Styles….or the Devil Wears Prada AU that no one wanted. Sort of.
Larry the Devil Wears Prada AU - Fashion (18k) : so this is very free adaptation, don’t look at too many references ! But it’s funny, and the smut is so great (bottom!Harry, and omg desk-sex)
- Tug-of-War , by @cherrystreet : Louis’ husband dies suddenly and he is left with nothing. Well, not really nothing. He has Harry. And a St. Bernard puppy named Link, whom his late husband left behind for him. Louis takes care of Link and Harry takes care of Louis. Everything is okay until suddenly, it isn’t.Soundtrack: What Would I Do Without You by Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors
Larry BFF to lovers AU (55k). Okay, if you’re ready for a good cry, and a lot of angst, and also so many feelings, read this. This is absolutely perfect. (bottom Louis for the smut, which is so so so great).
- From Eight Until Late, I Think About You by @supernope : After finding out that his University of Brighton roommate has a YouTube channel, Harry starts up his own channel, on which he posts videos of himself doing weekly challenges. He strikes up a friendship with Louis, a popular youtuber in London, that starts in the comments on their videos and progresses to texting, skyping, and talking about each other in their own videos far too often. They fall for each other long-distance, but put off meeting face-to-face as long as possible, too nervous that they’ll screw it all up. Involves a bunch of YouTube challenges (AKA excuses for Harry to get naked), some awkward snapchat mishaps, and a whole lot of pining.
Larry YouTubers AU (35k) with soooo much pining and finally a great smut (bottom harry) ! cute and fun :)
- you’ve set on me , by anonymous : Harry’s been completely blindsided, is the thing. Like a car without headlights crashing into him. It’s not that he thought he’d never see Louis again in his life. It’s just this. He wasn’t ready for this. au. louis’ in an obscure band. harry’s an international popstar. their paths aren’t meant to cross, not like this, but when louis’ band signs on as harry’s opening act, both harry and louis are forced to confront the open wounds of their shared past.
