Week Five Roundup!!

And the first AUTHOR REVEAL

I Want You (Alone With Me) (7k, Explicit)

Hi,

Sorry for the title. Wasn’t quite sure what to name this – reckoned “Harold, I Want Your Versace Arse” was a bit too forward, not knowing if this was a business email and all (and if it is? Hello, call me intrigued).

Anyway. Reckoned I should offer some basic information, then thought twice about it – if you’re interested in a twenty-four-year-old male with no interest in anything more than casual web-sex, I’ve attached my number below. Do give me a call should you be interested.

Sincerely,

Tommosi

Can’t Go Without You Anymore (10k, Mature)

Harry Styles was on the edge of a nervous breakdown. This was award season. He wasn’t even nominated for anything, still everyone wanted a piece of him. But Harry was lonely. And a stressed and lonely Harry did no one good. What if one night his friends and his manager just ran into the most fitting boy for their friend? And what if maybe they set him up as Harry Styles personal assistant. It already sounds like the beginning of a disaster.

or

Personal Assistant Louis Tomlinson is going to be the end of actor Harry Styles. This was a given.

Never Too Late (18k, Mature)

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.

The Places Where We Met by @chelsea-frew (5k, General Audiences)

Harry Styles loves his job as 1/3 of a famous boy band. It does, however, get lonely, and he counts on a special online friend to get him through. He’s scared, though, to dare to hope that one day, his online friend could perhaps be more than just an online friend. Fate has something to say about that.

My personal thoughts on the interview - I’ve just read it over now so maybe opinion will change with a couple of reads. I think Paul was coming at it from a completely different angle to Harry. I think he was a little jaded from the disagreements and ending of his band, that he was assuming the same for Harry and One Direction. I adore Harry for speaking to fondly of his time in the band. When we’ve had so much ‘Harry hates the band’ shoved in our faces, to read what he said literally means the world to me.
As much as there was solo Harry talk, it wasn’t the big announcement people were expecting. It all felt very vague to me like he just experimenting atm and seeing what works for him and what he wants to do. Which I love. I’m so happy for him to have time to explore himself and his talent. It also felt like Harry was quite tentative about it, which I think it a huge contradiction to what we are supposed to believe - that’s he’s been waiting for this for years.
As for vague comments about the bands future. I’m very much of the opinion there’s still so much up in the air, and there’s a limit to what he can say. I don’t particularly think it’s a good idea to be specific in a date either. Of course I’d love to know for sure they will be back in 2018 for example, but I think that puts pressure on everyone. They all need time to explore all avenues.
I love him for cutting Paul off when Paul went off talking about fans in his room. I adore Harry for shutting that down. I also think he answered Chelsea’s question about marriage and kids well. He’s as vague as he could be without completely avoiding. And bless Chelsea for being general neutral.

Overall I’m so happy and positive about this. I feel like in this fandom it’s become custom to expect the worse and I’ll be honest I had been preparing myself (i don’t really know what for lol) but I’m so pleasantly surprised, it’s lovely to read a full interview with Harry talking fairly opening. I’m focusing on the positivity of this.
