Here is this week’s Fic Rec! Also, fun fact - I am currently on a cross country road trip, and made this list while in Denver, CO! Hi to anyone who’s from here! 😊

1. to be loved (and to be in love) by nouiiam

“What? I’m a very quiet person.” Harry shrugs, shoving his hands in the pockets of his jeans.

Louis purses his lips.”You seemed a bit more reckless, I guess,” He says. “Must be the curls.”

“Must be,” Harry agrees, nodding and smiling. Louis makes a humming noise and pokes the corner of Harry’s mouth.

“Those dimples, too. Very rebellious looking,” He tells him, crossing his arms and grinning like mad.

-or the one where Louis’s popular, Harry’s not and they bond by trying to get their friends together while accidentally matchmaking the entire school.

2. Home Wrecker by D1ona30

There’s something written on the wall, and he can just barely focus on it with the guy on his knees and his lips around his dick but he can read it: “WATCH OUT FOR THE HOMEWRECKER,” written in black sharpie. Harry looks down for a moment and wonders if this is the boy the person was talking about

3. Just a Flower Boy by Larryruinedme
Words: 70k


Harry Styles is a clumsy, flower crown-wearing, openly gay junior with only two true friends, Niall and Zayn. Louis Tomlinson is the school’s attractive, straight football captain, with a small body and a big personality. As fate will have it, Harry has a huge, unrequited, utterly hopeless crush on Louis.

Fate is thrown out the window the day that Harry and Louis find themselves partnered up for a history project. Harry starts to receive notes from a secret admirer, Louis starts to get jealous of Harry’s budding friendship with senior Nick Grimshaw, Zayn and Liam develop a thing for each other, and Niall is the best mate anyone could have asked for. And suddenly, Harry’s crush on Louis doesn’t seem so utterly hopeless anymore.

4. How Much For A Dozen And You? by SS98
Words: 3k

Harry parts his lips with words at the tip of his tongue. He shoves his hands into the pockets of his coat and fights with himself mentally on what to say next. “Do you…- Do you like Italian food?”

“I haven’t really eaten much of it.” Louis admits, clearing his throat. “W-Why do you ask?”

The question seems to catch Harry off-guard even though he opened up this path of conversation. In addition, everyone seated around them seems drawn to their awkward communication; even the ladies who conduct the actual baking in the kitchen are peeking through a slot in the wall.

“Well, would you be open to being convinced?” Harry asks, wincing when he clumsily steps around the table and ends up kicking it an inch to the left.

Or, Louis works in a bakery and Harry doesn’t. They fall in love through a series of awkward events.

5. Could Be Kissing my Fruit Punch Lips by thecheshirepussycat

Harry happens upon a porn site that specializes in live videos and sort of falls in love with the cute boy he only knows as Kitty.

And then he gets the surprise of his life when he finds out Kitty attends his university…

The gentle pull of a tide that rolls over and over again and by the sheer nature of its essence it becomes an indestructible will- ripping out sand- eroding what was before it- without a care… a transformational monster-becoming the madness and frenzy of a truly bulletproof wave. I’m not just here for your love, I’m here for all of the love. An overdose of dopamine- we are living inside of M A  N   I    A right now. the never sleeping, never blinking- caught forever in the sunshine riptide. -pw

autumn’s probably gonna remain my favorite season until the day i’m not breathing anymore. like. it’s just great. ya know? football. cold hair. the smells. like it’s kinda musty but it’s just…fall. it’s autumn. i remember when i worked alllll through the fall and i never really got to enjoy it. i didn’t get to go tailgating for football or even go to the bar and watch my favorite team play. like. nothing. but this fall i hope it’s not like that because i really wanna just go do things. because while i love summer and every other season, autumn is by far my favorite. the colors. the smells. the things going on. the need for warmer clothes and layers. i’m not immediately sweating when i step out my door. autumn just doesn’t receive enough positive attention i don’t think.
