i want you so much (but i hate your guts)

Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson

AU in which Louis gets accepted to play for the Manchester University Alpha-Beta Football Team. The only problem: Louis is actually an Omega. He is determined to make it big in the football world, though, and he can’t do that bound to an Omega team. With the help of a faked doctor’s certificate and some pretty strong suppressants he is ready to fight for his dream.

That Harry Styles (Alpha, second year and youngest football captain of the A-B team in ages) doesn’t seem to like him complicates matters, though.


This is still a Work in Progress!

Top 25 Larry Fics of 2017

I did this post for 2016 and got a great response! 

I read a lot of fic and the majority of it is larry. I like making lists and I like larry so I thought I’d do some minimal research of the top 25 larry fics published/completed in 2017 in order of least to most kudos (with links). All of these fics are top notch so you should all check them out!

25.) Little Cub by aace1234 (68k)

Harry is head of the underground, he’s ruthless, possessive, feared and powerful.

Louis is a student, his dad works for Harry but Louis has no idea about the underground world.

What happens when Louis Dad causes trouble and Harry kidnaps Louis for revenge.

24.) Resist Everything Except Temptation by @domestic-harry (100k)

The lethargic sound of heels clicking against wood resonated across the sea. Footsteps descended the staircase, every assured step creating a menacing aura as it grew closer. Perspiration gathered along Louis’ palms as the rhythmic sound halted in front of him.

“Captain,” Malik greeted.

Louis watched out of his peripheral as Malik’s boots shuffled back a few steps. Sweat matted the hair along the nape of Louis’ neck as he waited for something to happen. He felt as if a sharp blade was twisting his gut as the silence became tangible.

There was a metallic slide of a sword being pulled out of its sheath, the sound startling Louis out of his cocoon of sterile shock. His shoulders jumped as the tip of a blade flattened underneath his jaw. Louis’ distorted reflection stared back at him in the polished metal. Engraved rose petals twisted his appearance as they crawled up the length of the sword. The sword lifted and took Louis’ chin with it.

Standing in front of Louis was Captain Styles.

OR

The one where Louis is the commodore’s son who is forced to become a part of Harry’s crew when he is captured.

For the team.

Hey, it’s good to be back. Or kinda of back. I still have work, but I’ll try to post often and to retake some of my works.

WARNINGS?! i think kinda dubious consent, kinda langst? I’m not sure and I wrote this


Lance knew this was madness.

“We need to get out of here, now!”

What he was about to do was about to change his life, forever. 

“They’re coming!” 

But you see, if Lance wanted to save his friends… he needed to make some sacrifices.

“Lance, where are you?!”

“Buddy, please answer!”

Lance tried to speak, but Lotor surprised him with another punch. 

“We can’t wait much longer!”

“But–!”

“Open the gates, now! We need to save the prisioners before Lotor comes!”

But the moment his friends opened the gates, an alarm was set and suddenly, Lotor’s attention wasn’t on him anymore.

“Fuck!” He launched himself at the prince, he couldn’t let him get close to the others. If he did, they were lost. 

“Get off me, you filthy human!” 

Lotor was stronger than him, faster. And Lance was risking his life by facing someone like him alone, but he needed to keep him away from his friends.

His team was terrified of Lotor, and they had their reasons. Lotor was not a normal alpha.

They all thought that dynamics were simple: Omega, Beta, Alphas and Alpha-primes. Alteans and Galra dynamics were similar, they had the same system just with different names. Shiro and Allura were great examples of Alpha prime. Even Zarkon was alpha prime! 

But Lotor… He wasn’t an alpha prime. They actually had no idea what Lotor was. But they knew he was above them. His power, his scent. He was like nothing they have faced before.

The first time they fought against him it was terrible. The way Shiro frozen in fear and knelt down in submission… How helpless and vulnerable they became.

The mere presence of Lotor was enough to make Voltron fall. 

Lance was lucky to be an omega. For some reason the alpha didn’t affect him as much. Yes, Lance felt the urge to run away from him, to hide and to show his neck. But he could fight it. It wasn’t that strong… Well, maybe it was. But Lance had practice challenging all type of alphas. 

“You stupid whore!” 

Ah, where were we? Right, Lance was trying to distract Lotor and give his friends enough time to run away.

Lotor fred himself from Lance’s grasp and threw the omega away from him. 

The alpha turned around and faced the door. Lance got up slowly…

“Guys… “

“Lance!”

“Lance, where are you?!”

“We don’t have much–”

“Leave without me.” 

…And took his helmet off. 

Lance knew this was madness. 

His helmet hit the floor and soon followed his chest plate. 

What he was about to do was about to change his life, forever.

He pulled the collar of his suit and exposed his neck.

But you see, if Lance wanted to save his friends… he needed to make some sacrifices.

Lance whined, and Lotor’s attention was back on him. 

He closed his eyes and concentrate, trying to make his omega scent stronger. Lance was only a few hours away from his heat, he could feel it. And he knew, the stronger the alpha, the most difficult was for them to ignore their most basic instincts. Like claiming an omega in heat with no mate.

Lance opened his eyes. Lotor was now in front of him, breathing hard. His pupils were dilated and his scent had become thicker. Lance took a deep breath and moaned unwittingly. Lotor licked his scent glands, and Lance felt the slick starting to wet his clothes. He shivered, something in Lotor’s scent was making him get into heat sooner than expected. 

The alpha took a whiff of the slick and without warning he pushed Lance to the floor. He put himself in between the omega’s legs and tore his suit without trouble.

Suddenly, Lance was on four and Lotor was eating his hole out. Lance gasped in surprised but did nothing to get away.

A few more minutes passed and Lance was now beggin for Lotor’s cock. His heat was at full force now, and Lotor was hard as hell. 

Lotor fucked him raw and hard, leaving the omega senseless. Everything happened in a blur. 

The only thing that Lance could remember before passing out was Lotor’s fangs biting down his neck, marking him as his mate. Creating a bond that would bind them forever.

Fic Rec #3

New weekend, new fics to read!! 

the pink album by suspendrs  @suspendrs

They don’t really discuss how hard it is to be in this situation, or to be doing the things they have to do to continue being together. It’s just something they don’t talk about, and that’s alright. Or maybe it isn’t, but they’ll cross that bridge when they get to it.

Or, a love seven years in the making, inspired by Harry’s debut album.

**I have been keeping up with this fic for a long time and I will add it ti my ‘canon’ Larry fic rec. Read this, guys. 10 chapters on each of Harry’s songs.

if it’s me you’re looking for by eleadore @eleadore

Louis has a bad habit of getting drunk before he confesses–or maybe it’s the other way around. AU.

**I dunno why I waited so long to read this fic. It was great!

I Don’t Wanna Hurt Anymore by offwiththeirheads @hazzabooween

Harry walks a thin line between breaking his best friend’s heart and fighting a losing battle.

**This was so good guys! It is short but powerful!

Never Too Late by dimpled_halo  @dimpled-halo

Harry’s confused for a moment before it hits him: the little boy is signing. Harry squats down to get to the boy’s level again and mirrors the same action.

“Dad?” He inquires. Harry learned basic sign language after having met a fan who was deaf. He made it his mission to learn signing so that he’d be able to communicate with other fellow hearing impaired fans.

The little boy smiles brightly, his tears now long gone. He goes on to extend both hands, palms up as if he’s asking where? Followed by the previous sign which means Dad. Harry smiles to himself at the amazing little guy standing in front of him.

He stands up taking the boy’s hand, “Let’s go find your dad,” he tells him making the motion with his hand.

Just having come out of the closet and recovering from vocal surgery, famous recording artist Harry Styles needs to get away from LA to work on new music needing to prove to his label that his career isn’t over. Little does he know that his life is about to change forever when he runs into an old friend at the city he’s decided to escape to.

**THIS WAS SO PRECIOUS! OMG i AM IN LOVE WITH KID FICS AND THIS HITS THE SPOT!!! rEAD THIS!!

give me things to stay awake by embodied @crossnecklace

It’s shitty and it’s counterproductive and it’s self-indulgent, but he lets it become a thing. On Saturday nights Harry goes out and gets so pissed he can’t stand, and when the bartender cuts him off he rings Louis and is in his car within an hour. It’s not a cycle he’s proud of, but it’s also something he can’t resist, and he keeps doing it as long as Louis keeps showing up.

AU. It’s been a year since Louis broke up with Harry.

**This is a break up/getting back together fic. So be ready with those tissues (seriously, you will need them)!!

If It’s Meant To Be (It’ll Be, It’ll Be) by lululawrence @lululawrence

“So, anyway. I’m done here and on my way to the airport. I think I’m expected to be there in the morning, around ten. I’ll let you know when I’m getting close.”

“Sounds good.” Harry pulled back from the window and threw himself onto one of the beds. Once he got comfortable, he steeled himself and then went for it. “It’s been too long this time, Lou,” he finally whispered. He watched as Louis bit his lip and nodded slowly.

“I know,” Louis agreed, just as quiet in return. “We have to swear to never go this long without seeing each other again. Two months is just…unacceptable. I’m gonna go now, but I’ll see you soon. ‘Kay?”

“Yeah. See you. Be safe,” Harry said, far too fondly for his best friend. He couldn’t help it though. It was how he always had been and probably always would be.

They hung up and Harry threw his arm over his face.

“I am so in love with him,” he whined to himself. “Fuck.”

** This fic was so adorable, guys! MUTUAL PINING!!!

We’ll Be Seamless by waytoomanypeopleintheaddisonlee (dinosaursmate) @dinosaursmate

Green reblogged an old photo of himself. It was from back in October, a Halloween special. A pulse shot all the way through Louis because this photo was his absolute favourite, and it had taken the rest of the year for him to wean himself off of it.

Green was on his knees, arms stretched out in front of him with his fingertips digging into the surface of his bed. He was wearing a pair of cat ears on his head, his curls falling forward. His back was arched, and in the foreground of the picture, Green’s bum was high in the air, a long, black cat tail sitting neatly between his cheeks.

Louis spends all his spare time scrolling arty nude blogs on Tumblr but amongst them all, Green is his favourite.

**I dunno why I did not come across this fic before because it is GOLD! I love tumblr fics and this was so awesome!! (Also, check out the blog this fic is based on…life changing *cough*)

Like a Bullet in the Dark by Vurdoc  @vurdoc

Prince Harold Edward Styles Lancaster is second in line to the throne of Great Britain. He is also your average Uni student- or he tries to be, anyway.

With a promise from the press (and his father) that they’ll leave him alone for four years, he sets out to be a student at Cambridge, when he meets his very normal, very working class, very handsome suite-mate, Louis Tomlinson.

Louis makes Harry feel more like a person than he ever has before, which might cause some issues later on- ‘cause Harry has a secret that he’s only told his sister Gemma about.

Little does he know though, that Louis has some secrets of his own.

A Will & Kate Au- with a twist.

**This is sorta WIP because the author is writing a series. Saying too much about this fic will probably ruin it, so.. just read it!

Take Me To A Dream by waytoomanypeopleintheaddisonlee (dinosaursmate) @dinosaursmate

“Hiya,” Harry said, beaming up at him. “These sandwiches any good?”
Words failed Louis, and he felt his shoulders shrug. “They’re fine for, like, eating.”
Harry paused, mid-swipe of Louis’ staff discount card. “I don’t use my sandwiches for much else, personally.”
Louis sighed to himself, embarrassed. A small smile was playing on Harry’s lips, dimple denting his cheek. God, Louis felt like a bloody idiot.

There’s just something about the new checkout boy that makes Louis lose his cool and act like a complete idiot, which doesn’t escape the attention of Liam or Niall. As much as Louis hates embarrassing himself, there’s something about Harry that keeps Louis coming back for more.

**Erm… same author twice. But both fics are so different! This is FLUFF!!

i want you so much (but i hate your guts) by becauselarry (WIP) @obviouslybecauselarry

AU in which Louis gets accepted to play for the Manchester University Alpha-Beta Football Team. The only problem: Louis is actually an Omega. He is determined to make it big in the football world, though, and he can’t do that bound to an Omega team. With the help of a faked doctor’s certificate and some pretty strong suppressants he is ready to fight for his dream.

That Harry Styles (Alpha, second year and youngest football captain of the A-B team in ages) doesn’t seem to like him complicates matters, though.

**I know its WIP but its so good!! And ENEMIES TO LOVERS! Go and read it! 

i’m still learning to love by stylinsonau (WIP)

“Hello there.” Louis crouches in front of the small child, brunette with light sleepy eyes. He smiles fondly. He looks a lot like his father, but with a little less laugh lines, and frowns, and grumpiness.

The child continues to rub at his eyes, clutching at his little shark before he asks, “Are you gonna be my new Dada?”

Harry stiffens.

Or

An au where Harry has almost everything in the world except for the will to move on.

** ANother kid fic! Babysitter Louis! 


I wanna rec so much more. But its getting pretty long. And DON’T FORGET TO LEAVE A KUDOS AND NICE COMMENTS FOR THE AUTHORS!! 

Happy Reading!!!!!!!!

19.  The Wolves Den by @alltheloulongday
Words: 87k

Louis is the first born Omega in centuries and he doesn’t know this, an important fact.

She’s scared of the Alphas that may rape and mate her son for the power he possess. She finds it hard to accept herself and her son into a pack but when he’s fed up with moving she settles down. They found themselves in the lovely state of Michigan with one of the most respected packs in the world.

There’s no way to tell that Louis is an Omega unless you were his mother, father, or an Alpha. Harry notices Louis before he’s even met him, smells him in the hallway, in the classrooms, on the seats. Harry doesn’t know what the smell is. He just knows that it’s delicious and makes him weak in the knees. He needs to find the source of the smell before he goes crazy, but the way he finds the tiny Omega may make Harry crazy with anger.

20. bite me by happilylarry

21.  Swim In The Smoke by @crazyupsetter
Words: 101k

“What about this, Captain?” Liam asks, nudging the boy kneeling between their feet with the toe of his boot. The boy hisses and swipes at him, slurring out something unintelligible around the makeshift gag Niall had to stuff in his mouth. He misses by a mile and tries again, just as ineffectively.

Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious, next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.

“Put him in my cabin,” Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot. The boys screams out jumbled curse words at Harry’s back, muffled by the gag, and Harry can’t understand any of it.

22.  Only You Can Be My Alpha by @wubwubnparmaham
Words: 194k

OR the one where Louis is banished from his tribe, and lands himself in Harry’s instead. The alluring Pack Alpha makes Louis question his nature and he doesn’t know how he feels about that. But you can’t fight destiny.

23.  Cold Little Heart by seducedbycurls
Words: 194k

Louis is a soft omega with an abusive past and an alpha child

In exchange for teaching him how to cook, Harry will babysit his son, Abraham

24.  pray for some sweet simplicity by @emperorstyles
Words: 237k

Or, an AU where motorcycle racing is the biggest sport in a heavily divided world, Louis is trying to take control of his own destiny, and Harry is in for more than he bargained for.

Some people headcanon Jasper as having a friendly relationship with the other beta gems

But I think it would be way funnier if Jasper was a known passive-aggressive bully to all of them, like a typical mean queen bee. She had a small entourage of fellow bitches and they’d stand in the corner and practice their sneering. I would live for that.

New Podcast - Open Casting Call!

Hello all space explorers! Today I’m honored not only to introduce a project we’ve been working on for years, but also to announce that we’re holding an open casting call for several voice acting positions!

Gliese and Thank You is a science-fiction comedy podcast about the mismatched team currently residing in a space station orbiting the earth-like planet Gliese 667 CC. On a mission on the far away planet, the most skilled, advanced team set up the beginning of a long and prosperous mining and research mission aboard the USS Manticore Space Station. By now, they’ve all gone home and the mission is being watched over by a sort of ‘beta’ team made up of the most undesirable and questionable choices in company history. They are tasked with discovering what, if any, value lies beneath the surface of the strange and alien planet below. Will the team overcome their differences in the face of increasingly strange occurrences? Will personal grievances win out when people so different from one another are forced into long term close quarters? Will someone please get the robot in the men’s quarters to stop screaming? We’ll just have to wait and see!

Auditions are being held for the characters listed below.

Dakota Cox - 23 - Lieutenant/Second in Command - Ethnicity: Ambiguous, all may audition - Pronouns: She/Her (Dakota is trans, so it would be amazing to have a trans actress play her) - Orientation: Pan

Dakota is a bright, bubbly, enthusiastic member of the crew. She’s a connoisseur of the bedazzled, a queen of customization. Always reliable, she’s the one to count on for both official business and her not-so-official “black market” of little luxuries she gets shipped in from earth for the crew. She looks up to the Commander and wants to be just like her, but is currently having trouble in getting the crew to view her as a leader as opposed to a little sister. She’s never been one to back down from a challenge, however, and her first mission may be just the challenge she needs.

Voice Notes: Bright, bubbly, a touch sarcastic and playfully teasing

Lance Whilton- 28 - Chief of Research, Level 2 officer - Ethnicity: ambiguous, all may audition - Pronouns: He/Him - Orientation: Ace/Gay

Lance is, well, a bit of a tight ass. He’s here for science, and can’t seem to grasp why nobody takes his work as seriously as he does. As a chemist and a geologist, he’s fascinated with the chemical building blocks of an entirely new planet and is anxious to make some sort of breakthrough to prove himself to both the scientific community and his fellow crewmates. He makes a stoic attempt to be the calm, collected leader of his science team, but often finds himself flustered and overwhelmed when things go south (and things always seem to go south). Underneath it all, all he truly wants is respect and acceptance from his peers, and for his hard work to be acknowledged.

Jimmothy Kaipo - 29 - Heavy lifter (Maintenance)/ Level 0 recruit - Ethnicity: Polynesian/Korean preferred - Pronouns: He/Him - Orientation: Pan

Everything about Jim is big - his muscles, his personality, and especially his heart. He’s the resident cheer factory and prides himself on his ability to make everyone, even Lance, smile. Incredibly trusting and altruistic, Jim sees the best in everyone. While he may not be as book smart as the rest of the crew, but he makes up for it with stubborn determination and a drive to go above and beyond for his friends.

Voice Notes: sunshine and rainbows meets body builder. A bit bumbling but sincere and lovable

Captain Margaret Delorris Mae - 63 - Commander - Ethnicity: black preferred - Pronouns: She/Her - Orientation: Ace/Aro

Delorris is the self-appointed and well loved mother of her crew. She’s always there to lend an ear and a plate of fresh-baked goods, complete with a probably-made-up-on-the-spot southernism. Don’t let her southern charm fool you, she’s remarkably cool-headed in a crisis and has years of experience to draw on when leading her mission, even though it sometimes feels more like herding cats.

Voice Notes: Slight southern accent, which may or may not be intentionally exaggerated

***

If you want to try your hand at amateur voice acting, please send an .mp3 containing

1) a short description of yourself, who you’re auditioning for (you may audition for multiple parts) and why you want the part you’re auditioning for, and

2) a 1-2 minute monologue from a script of your choice

to thegliesecrew@gmail.com

Preliminary audition deadline is February 15th, with callbacks to take place after the initial auditions.

Actors must have their own microphones, and be able to send lines via google docs/gmail at least twice a month (episodes as they currently stand are 20 minutes split between 8-9 characters apiece, so time commitment is relatively minimal). If you have any specific schedule requirements, please let us know.

As of right now, this project is simply for the love of getting something out there. The crew has discussed launching a patreon once we get a few episodes out, and financial compensation for voice actors is our top priority when that occurs.

Even if you can’t audition, please spread this post as you’re able. This project is very close to our hearts and we cannot wait to get it out to the public, but we need to fill these roles to make it happen. And if you have any questions, please feel free to send them to this blog and we’ll provide any answers we can, or check our FAQ post -> [x]

Thanks, and see you in the stars!

I remember how you looked at me when I pulled you out of the sea
Eyes closed as the waves splashed into your open mouth
Head tilted up to greet the open sky
I didn’t know you could drown once we made it to shore
That the tides could still take you away
That I’d use all my strength to swim back to you

I remember how you looked at me when you pulled me out of Hell
Eyes filled with light as I fell against your side
Head bowed to take in every inch of me
You didn’t know I would burn in coolness of your touch
That it was the fire and brimstone of the hope I’d lost
That you’d have to walk through Hell to save me


I remember how you wouldn’t look at me when I pulled you out of prison
Eyes fixed on where your shackles had been
Head turned away in shame and despair
I knew you were held hostage by blood she spilled on your hands
That it would take time to unravel your chains
That I would stay in your cell until I set you free


I see how you look at me now that we have been pulled into the stars
Eyes beginning to shine when I reach for your hand
Head tilted towards my gravitational pull
You know we are binary stars fighting the fissures between us
That gravity is no match for the force that binds us together
That we will orbit each other throughout the eternities

—  We have always been better together

(Happy birthday, @hemnalini!)
