Joy’s All Time Fav Larry Fic Rec

These Inconvenient Fireworks

The ultimate Larry fic. No given summary. Just read it. AU 130k-ish.

My English Love Affair - isthatyoularry

The thing about sleeping with a member of a famous indie band is that the inevitability of having a song written about you is most likely a hundred percent. The second thing is that in the end, nobody’s supposed to find out it’s about you.

The one where Harry writes a song about his English love affair and Louis sleeps with someone in White Eskimo and all he gets is a stupid song written about him. 19k

The Finish Line (Is a Good Place for Us to Start) - loadedgunn

Louis Tomlinson, one-time Formula 1 World Champion, is looking forward to the 2013 season. He’s got Zayn in his garage and Liam in his ear, he’s got Cowell Racing backing him despite former indiscretions, he’s got experience and the best race car out there. Not to mention he’s the only racer they have, after Oliver dropped out late last year.

It hasn’t occurred to him that Oliver would have to be replaced by February. That is, until he finds himself at a party celebrating Harry Styles leaving Ferrari for Cowell. 122k

Wild and Unruly - 100percentsassy and gloria_andrews

Harry is a cowboy sitting on the biggest oil reservoir in Wyoming, and Louis is the paralegal assigned to pressure him into selling his land. 123k

These Streets are Yours (You Can Keep Them) - acavall

Working as an EMT has slowly sanded Louis down to a muted existence, and he’s made his peace with that long ago. Except now he’s got a new trainee in his ambulance, and Zayn’s dating a fireman, and there’s a gorgeous, idealistic policeman on the scene who keeps doing stupid and heroic things and making Louis’ heart beat just that bit faster. 22k

As You Are - zarah5

AU. Five years after The X Factor launched his career as a radio host and songwriter, Louis Tomlinson returns as a judge. Falling for a contestant is the last thing he needs. It’s also against his contract.

The only reason Harry auditions for The X Factor is because his best mate signed the two of them up as some kind of joke. Harry doesn’t get the big deal—not until he’s faced with this season’s judges and realises that one of them used to be his desperate, impossible teenage crush. 139k

You’ll Breathe Me In (You Won’t Release) - loadedgunn

His first driving lesson with Louis takes place on a Saturday.

Harry stumbles out through the front gate in thrown-on baggy jeans and his ratty Ramones shirt, sees Louis leaning casually against the car, and his knees nearly give out. Apparently “not another surly teacher” meant a drop dead gorgeous twenty-something scruffy guy with shaggy brown hair and cheekbones sharp enough to chop a salad with. Clearly, Robin’s trying to get Harry killed at seventeen.

Or, the AU where Louis is a 25-year-old driving instructor and Harry is a 17-year-old virgin who’s really awful at seduction. 95k

Wear It Like a Crown - zarah5

AU. As part of a team of fixers hired to handle a gay scandal in Buckingham Palace, Louis expects Prince Harry to be a lot of things—most notably a royally spoilt brat. Never mind that the very same Prince Harry used to star in quite a number of Louis’ teenage fantasies. 141k

And Then a Bit - infinitelymint

“We’d like to give the fans what they want.” Magee states, placing his hand on the table in front of him and leaning forward. “We want to give them Larry Stylinson.”

Or, take a parallel universe where Louis and Harry were never together, mix in a two year hiatus and an impending comeback, pour in a dash of lost fans, two tablespoons of strong friendship and a Modest! employee with a good idea. Add a squeeze of pretending to be a couple, lots of kisses and a tattoo or two. Stir. Serve: the mother of all publicity stunts. 158k

Two For Tea and Tea For Two - tomlinsuhhn

Louis turns five centimeters tall one day at work. Harry accidentally takes him home. 26k

Who’s Counting? - 16met18

Someone needs to write a ‘the fire alarm went off at 3 am and now the cute guy from the flat next door is standing next to me in his underwear’ AU. <1k

No One Does It Better - nodibs

Harry’s an alcoholic and Louis is a bartender. The first time they meet isn’t the first time they’ve met. 49k

Love is Simple, It’s Just That Simple - larrytale

“Love,” Harry says, and it’s kind of a routine now, because they’ve been together for 3 years and Louis has had insomnia for way longer than that. “Come back to bed.”

Louis has insomnia, and Harry has a whole lot of love for Louis. 6k

Fading - tothemoonmydear

Louis knows about beauty; the combination of qualities that pleases the aesthetic senses. He creates that combination every day in the garments he designs while studying fashion at uni. The cut of the design, the color of the fabric, the intricacy of the stitching; it all comes together to create something beautiful. When the science student with the long legs and dimpled smile agrees to model for him, Louis decides he’s found beauty personified. Harry just thinks Louis needs someone to show him how beautiful he is. 202k

Three French Hems - 100percentsassy, gloria_andrews

In which Louis is a designer at Burberry and Harry spends December wearing Lanvin… and Lanvin… and Lanvin. 19k

Pull Me Under - zarah5

AU. As the first British footballer to come out at the prime of his career, it helps that Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term, committed relationship. Even if that relationship is fake. (Featuring Niall as Louis’ favourite teammate, Liam as Louis’ agent, and Zayn as Liam’s boyfriend, who just happens to be good friends with one Harry Styles.) 140k

Thought The Song Was Sung - 100percentsassy

Louis never auditioned for the X-Factor. Years later, Harry’s just another gay ex-boybander who lives alone with his cat… until Niall decides to take matters into his own hands and set up a profile for Harry on a dating website. 12k

Like a Timebomb Ticking - infinitelymint

Louis loses everything. Harry’s still there. 31k

Joy’s All Time Fav Tomlinshaw Fic Rec

Hey, Hi There, Hello - usernicole

Louis can talk to animals. Nick can’t, but he tries anyway. Louis likes that in a guy.

I Had Rather Hear my Dog Bark at a Crow - sunsetmog

The first time Louis Tomlinson kisses him, Nick is three sheets to the wind, wearing a pirate hat, and so fucking tired of Louis being a complete and utter knobhead that he’s spent the last ten minutes snapping at him.

The kiss takes him rather by surprise, all things considered.

Or: Nick and Louis don’t like each other, not even a little bit, not even at all. 122k

 Loose Lips Sink Ships all the Damn Time (Not This Time) - mediawhore

“Louis Tomlinson is gay,” Fiona announces and she sounds calm at least.
“That’s not a scandal,” Nick replies automatically even though he feels slightly sick. He needs to call Louis back. Now.
“No,” Fiona agrees quickly. “But his underage gay sex tape is.”

The one where Louis is outed via a sex tape he made before the X-Factor and Nick can’t resist flying to America to give him a shoulder to cry on. Told through flashbacks, this is a story of getting together and getting back together. 39k

Getting Good At This - pukeandcry

Nick inherits custody of his baby god-daughter, and (predictably) has no idea what he’s doing; Louis only means to help out a bit, not fall in love with either of them. (A loosely-adapted Life As We Know It AU) 43k

I’ll Follow You, Follow You Home - annemari

Nick should be prepared for this. He absolutely should be prepared for this, is sure he’s even thought about this moment before. But he didn’t sleep that well, and it’s a Friday, and he dashed home after the show this morning because Louis said, “Just call me, Nick.” Said he’d be waiting up, and he didn’t care it was almost three in the morning in LA.

So, yeah. Nick isn’t prepared for Harry to answer Louis’s phone.

The one where Nick and Louis are in a secret relationship, Louis gets hurt on tour, and they both realise they have some things they need to figure out. 46k

Not Your Fault But Mine - sunsetmog

It’s the beginning of Louis’ second year at uni, and he’s sharing a house with his four best friends in the world. This is going to be the best fucking year ever, Louis can just tell. The best fucking year ever. 127k
