LISA. If every song from Halbum was a fic, what fic would they be?????

Meet Me In The Hallway

Just let me know I’ll be at the door, at the door
Hoping you’ll come around
Just let me know I’ll be on the floor, on the floor
Maybe we’ll work it out

  • Red Brick Heart : Uni AU. Harry had turned up at the halls of residence expecting fun, new friends, and maybe a life experience or two. What he doesn’t expect is a surprise roommate who’s loud and dramatic and obsessed with tea and is maybe, actually, all he’s ever wanted.

Sign of the Times

Just stop your crying, it’s a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here

  • Here In The Afterglow1970’s AU. In a tiny town in Idaho, Louis’ life is changed forever by the arrival of a curious stranger.

Carolina

She’s such a good girl 
She’s a good girl 
She feels so good

  • You’ll Breathe Me In (You Won’t Release)  AU where Louis is a 25-year-old driving instructor and Harry is a 17-year-old virgin who’s really awful at seduction, except for the time he gets Louis to fall for him and fuck him senseless and take him on kinky adventures.

Two Ghosts

We’re not who we used to be
We’re just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me
Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat

  • Love Is A Rebellious Bird :  AU in which the boys still make music. Louis is the concertmaster of the London Symphony Orchestra, Harry is the New! and Exciting! interim conductor/ex-cello prodigy who “has made Mozart cool again” according to Esquire Magazine (Louis hates him immediately, which is definitely why he internet stalked him in his dark bedroom late at night that one time), and Niall is the best. Zayn and Liam are around too.

Sweet Creature

But we’re still young
We don’t know where we’re going but we know where we belong

I know, we started
Two hearts in one home

  • Never Be : The one where Harry Styles moves to Connecticut from England for nine months as a part of a study abroad program, and he just so happens to move in with Louis Tomlinson and family.

Only Angel

I must admit I thought I’d like to make you mine
As I went about my business through the warning signs
End up meeting in the hallway every single time

  • Gods & Monsters : The instructions were simple: seduce and destroy Harry Styles. Not once did they discuss the option of Louis actually falling in love. So, naturally, that’s exactly what he did.

 Kiwi

And all the boys, they were saying they were into it
Such a pretty face, on a pretty neck

Driving me crazy, but I’m into it, but I’m into it
I’m kind of into it

  • Escapade : In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved. But when the wedding is for his lifelong best friend (and former boyfriend), and is happening in under a month, finding a date for the ceremony and accompanying festivities becomes more of an adventure than he ever could have planned for.

Ever Since New York

I need something, tell me something new
Choose your words, ‘cause there’s no antidote
For this curse
Oh, what’s it waiting for?
Must this hurt you just before you go?

  • Empty Skies : For three years, Harry has been running from his past. Now, he is moving to London and pledges to fulfil his only dream – making it big in the music industry. Not everyone has a place, though, and the competition is tough. As is his past catching up on him.Louis is part of the biggest boy band of the world, and getting there had meant a lot of hard work, as well as sacrificing parts of his heart and soul. He’s still happy. Maybe not as happy as he could be, but who is he to complain?

Woman

I hope you can see, the shape that I’m in
While he’s touching your skin
He’s right where I should, where I should be
But you’re making me bleed

  • You Are The Blood : A seventh-year Hogwarts AU in which Niall gets all the girls, Liam goes on a journey of self-discovery, Zayn falls in love, Harry wants something more, and Louis tries to figure out once and for all why he, a Muggleborn, was sorted into Slytherin.

From The Dining Table

We haven’t spoke since you went away
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won’t you ever be the first to break?
Even the phone misses your call, by the way

  • These Inconvenient FireworksFuture AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.

anonymous asked:

How did you imagine Louis' proposal in Empty Skies? In the epilogue is briefly described and I am kind of curious 😘☺️

Hiii love! I’m sorry this took forever and three days, but it’s impossible to get a minute to myself these days! 

Anyway… here is how I picture the proposal went down: 


“We should turn around, Lou.” 

Louis stopped and pursed his lips when he turned to Harry. “Maybe it’ll get better a bit higher up?” 

“I feel like it gets worse with every metre.” Harry rubbed his hands together and shrugged his shoulders. “It would have been nice, you know, coming here again, but I’m afraid it’s just not the right weather for that.” 

Louis looked around as if he hadn’t noticed the cold wind, loaded with wet snow before. He heaved a sigh and nodded. “I guess you’re right.” 

Harry held out his hand. “Should we go back to the car?”

“Maybe we should wait a bit longer?” Louis bit his lip, looking insecure. “It could clear up any moment.” He looked around again. “Perhaps.” 

“Aren’t you cold?” Harry felt himself getting impatient. They had booked the tour to see the Diamond Snow together once more, but weather really wasn’t anything anyone could control. 

Louis looked as if he wanted to say no, and Harry was about to tell him off for that, but then he took a step closer to Harry and tangled their cold fingers. Louis’ were actually blue at the tips. 

“Lou–” 

“I guess I’ll have to do it like this, then,” Louis said. He raised his gaze to Harry’s face. 

Harry frowned. “Do what?” 

“Come one, Haz.” Louis laughed quietly, shrugging one shoulder. “This is the only place in the world I could ever propose to you.” 

Harry’s breath got caught, his skin suddenly heating up, even though he had been freezing a second ago. “What?” 

“Last time we were here, I wanted to tell you how much I loved you,” Louis just went on, as if Harry was completely on track. “Instead, I asked you to be friends.” 

“You did tell me you lovd me,” Harry corrected him,pulling Louis a little closer by his hands. “You didn’t say it directly, but you said it.” 

Louis nodded, eyes still firmly set on Harry’s. “I told you before that what I said here was true – that I’d always be in love with the boy you were back then. And that I love the person you’ve become even more. You’ve become so much better, Haz. You coming back to me was the best thing that ever happened to me.” 

“I told you it was not–” 

Louis shook his head, squeezing Harry’s hands to make him quiet down. “I know. Just, you know– you’ll never understand what it means to me to come home, Harry. To come back home and not just saying your name into an empty flat. It’s the best feeling in the world to come back home to you.” 

Harry couldn’t hold in the smile. He took a deep breath and nodded, happy to see Louis smile back at him. 

“I’ve always wanted this,” Louis said. “This career, travelling the world, always being busy. But there’s a certain comfort in knowing that no matter where I am in the world, no matter where you are in the world, we’ll always find back to each other.” 

“We will,” Harry replied, his own voice barely above a whisper now. 

“I’ve got a ring.” Louis helplessly shrugged his shoulders. “But I think my fingers are too cold to even open the pocket of my jacket.” 

Harry laughed, shaking his head. “I’m so glad you decided to ask me,” he blurted out then. “I wasn’t sure about it.” 

“You weren’t sure about marrying me?” Louis blinked his eyes in confusion. 

“No!” Harry shook his head vehemently. “I was juggling the idea for a while, but I wasn’t sure what kind of ring to get you. You never wear rings.” 

“I’ll wear yours,” Louis promised, getting to his toes. “For the rest of my life.” 

Harry closed the gap to seal Louis’ lips with his. The cold was biting his skin, making his and Louis’ lips feel raw. “I haven’t said yes yet.” 

“Well, what’s keeping you?” Louis asked, tilting his head. “Will you marry me?” 

Harry smiled again. He tugged Louis along, back onto the path down the mountain. “Let me see that ring first.” 

“I can’t believe you.” Louis followed, his hand firmly in Harry’s. “Are you seriously doing this to me right now?”

“You know my answer,” Harry said, enjoying teasing Louis a little. 

“Well, would you be so kind to tell me?” 

Harry stopped and leaned in to bring his lips close to Louis’ ear. “Rululu.” 

Instead of complaining further, Louis just smiled fondly at him, his eyes wrinkling with happiness. Harry knew what that smile meant. 

It was every bit of an answer Louis had wanted.

im a baby larry, are they any fics that are like THE FICS that i need to read?

hi peach!

CLASSIC FICS (MUST-READS)

These are some of my favorites!

***Don’t forget to read the tags on these fics! Have fun and happy reading!

What if, when Petunia Dursley found a little boy on her front doorstep, she took him in? Not into the cupboard under the stairs, not into a twisted childhood of tarnished worth and neglect–what if she took him in?

Petunia was jealous, selfish and vicious. We will not pretend she wasn’t. She looked at that boy on her doorstep and thought about her Dudders, barely a month older than this boy. She looked at his eyes and her stomach turned over and over. (Severus Snape saved Harry’s life for his eyes. Let’s have Petunia save it despite them).

Let’s tell a story where Petunia Dursley found a baby boy on her doorstep and hated his eyes–she hated them. She took him in and fed him and changed him and got him his shots, and she hated his eyes up until the day she looked at the boy and saw her nephew, not her sister’s shadow. When Harry was two and Vernon Dursley bought Dudley a toy car and Harry a fast food meal with a toy with parts he could choke on Petunia packed her things and got a divorce.

Harry grew up small and skinny, with knobbly knees and the unruly hair he got from his father. He got cornered behind the dumpsters and in the restrooms, got blood on the jumpers Petunia had found, half-price, at the hand-me-down store. He was still chosen last for sports. But Dudley got blood on his sweaters, too, the ones Petunia had found at the hand-me-down store, half price, because that was all a single mother working two secretary jobs could afford for her two boys, even with Vernon’s grudging child support.

They beat Harry for being small and they laughed at Dudley for being big, and slow, and dumb. Students jeered at him and teachers called Dudley out in class, smirked over his backwards letters.

Harry helped him with his homework, snapped out razored wit in classrooms when bullies decided to make Dudley the butt of anything; Harry cornered Dudley in their tiny cramped kitchen and called him smart, and clever, and ‘better ‘n all those jerks anyway’ on the days Dudley believed it least.

Dudley walked Harry to school and back, to his advanced classes and past the dumpsters, and grinned, big and slow and not dumb at all, at anyone who tried to mess with them.

But was that how Petunia got the news? Her husband complained about owls and staring cats all day long and in the morning Petunia found a little tyke on her doorsep. This was how the wizarding world chose to give the awful news to Lily Potter’s big sister: a letter, tucked in beside a baby boy with her sister’s eyes.

There were no Potters left. Petunia was the one who had to arrange the funeral. She had them both buried in Godric’s Hollow. Lily had chosen her world and Petunia wouldn’t steal her from it, not even in death. The wizarding world had gotten her sister killed; they could stand in that cold little wizard town and mourn by the old stone.

(Petunia would curl up with a big mug of hot tea and a little bit of vodka, when her boys were safely asleep, and toast her sister’s vanished ghost. Her nephew called her ‘Tune’ not 'Tuney,’ and it only broke her heart some days.

Before Harry was even three, she would look at his green eyes tracking a flight of geese or blinking mischieviously back at her and she would not think 'you have your mother’s eyes.’

A wise old man had left a little boy on her doorstep with her sister’s eyes. Petunia raised a young man who had eyes of his very own).

Petunia snapped and burnt the eggs at breakfast. She worked too hard and knew all the neighbors’ worst secrets. Her bedtime stories didn’t quite teach the morals growing boys ought to learn: be suspicious, be wary; someone is probably out to get you. You owe no one your kindness. Knowledge is power and let no one know you have it. If you get can get away with it, then the rule is probably meant for breaking.

Harry grew up loved. Petunia still ran when the letters came. This was her nephew, and this world, this letter, these eyes, had killed her sister. When Hagrid came and knocked down the door of some poor roadside motel, Petunia stood in front of both her boys, shaking. When Hagrid offered Harry a squashed birthday cake with big, kind, clumsy hands, he reminded Harry more than anything of his cousin.

His aunt was still shaking but Harry, eleven years and eight minutes old, decided that any world that had people like his big cousin in it couldn’t be all bad. “I want to go,” Harry told his aunt and he promised to come home.

Hey, I was just wondering what Larry fanfics can you recommend, like what are your favourites??

Hello! Wow alright I have to admit that I have way to many favorites, they are all SO good that I honestly can’t help it, so i’ll narrow it down to my top 6! (was going to do 5 but I literally couldn’t choose so 6 it is) starting with 6 to my number 1 favorite fanfic! 

#6. Wear It Like A Crown

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.

Reasons why I love it: PRINCE HARRY! AND LOUIS AS A ‘SCANDAL’ TYPE CHARACTER!!!

#5. And Then a Bit

“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.

(aka Harry and Louis fake a relationship for publicity. Eventually it becomes a lot less fake and a lot more real.)

Reason’s why I love it: ITS JUST DAMN GOOD! TRUST ME!!

#4. Empty Skies

For three years, Harry has been running from his past. Now, he is moving to London and pledges to fulfil his only dream – making it big in the music industry. Not everyone has a place, though, and the competition is tough. As is his past catching up on him.

Louis is part of the biggest boy band of the world, and getting there had meant a lot of hard work, as well as sacrificing parts of his heart and soul. He’s still happy. Maybe not as happy as he could be, but who is he to complain?

Featuring Perrie as Harry’s adorable flatmate, Niall as his manager, and Liam and Zayn as Louis’ bandmates.

Reasons why I love it: I personally love Perrie so i love it when she’s in fics but my ultimate fantasy brotp is Perrie/Harry, and in this fic they are super close also she braids his hair!! also baby blue rululu! nuff said.

#3. Wild And Unruly

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.

Reasons why I love it: HARRY IS A FARMER/RANCHER!! LOUIS IN SUITS! BABY COWS!

In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved.

#1. Young & Beautiful

Louis, to his horror, attends an elitist university in which the name Zayn Malik means something, Niall Horan doesn’t stop talking, there are pianos everywhere, and Harry Styles, only son of a drug-addled, clinically insane ex-rocker, has a perfect smile and empty eyes.

My reason why i love it: GIVES ME MAJOR GOSSIP GIRL FEELS!! ACTUALLY I READ IT AROUND THE TIME WHERE MY GOSSIP GIRL ENDING DEPRESSION WAS ON ITS VERY HIGH THIS WAS A VERY GOOD TRANSITION INTO THE 1D WORLD FROM HAVING GOSSIP GIRL BE MY LIFE FOR 6 YEARS!

anonymous asked:

I've been wanting to read Empty Skies for years but everytime I remember a post someone reblogged onto my dash ages ago about how Louis was kind of the 'bad guy' in the fic, and given all the shit Louis constantly get in the fandom and people judging him I was never brave enough to read your fic. So i want to ask you to post(under the cut)a huge spoiler for me and tel me exactly what he did wrong in the fic to make that person say he was the bad guy in the fic. Please?I love all your other fics

And everyone always mention Empty Skies, I want to read it without the fear of the angst hitting me to hard and is there a happy ending? Please post this for me I really love your writing.

——

Hiii love. Hmm, yes, Empty Skies is very angsty. It’s got a melancholy tone right from the beginning, and you know something really bad happened in the past from the first chapter on. It slowly gets revealed throughout the first 5 chapters, and it turns out that, yes, Louis was the one who fucked up. Big time. 

The thing is, you get both POV’s in the fic, so you get to find out why Louis did what he did, and you get to see that he’s changed and that he’s truly suffering. There’s a lot of suffering from Louis’ POV because he regerets what he’s done with all his heart. Even though he’s the one who’s left Harry to chase his own dreams and build a career without him, we see Louis suffer much more than Harry – he never really forgave himself, and he never stopped loving Harry. So, basically, the reader feels a lot of sympathy for Louis. He just desperately tries to make it right. 

I promise there’s a long, long talk where they sort through their mess, and they get to grow together in that fic and figure out how to be together again. And there’s never just one person at fault if a relationship doesn’t work out. Sure, Louis left Harry for his career, but when they meet again, Harry is petty and spiteful, and he does a lot of mistakes himself. Mistakes he’ll make up for, too. 

I hope that helps a little? I’m not a fan of giving out big spoilers, because then the story’s already told, and there’s no use reading it anymore. But this summarises what issue the angst revolves around in the fic! 

If you have any more questions, do ask! I hope that you’ll enjoy the fic should you start reading it! (If you’ve read Nameless Night, you’re good, love. Empty Skies is less angsty than that one <3) 

this is to you and only you.
this is about the way your voice cracks when your smile breaks through your words. this is about the way you look at me as if you saw galaxies where I only saw empty skies. this is about how your voice sounding like my favourite poem.  this is about the way you touch me, not skin on skin but soul on soul. this is to us. the young, the wild, the reckless. the lovers.

FANFIC FRIDAY - #1

I’ve been wanting to start doing this for a while now, and I’m finally sitting down to do it. These are a few fics that I have read and loved. There’s a pretty good mix of angst, fluff, and shameless smut on this list so enjoy yourselves :)

1. Empty Skies (134k)

For three years, Harry has been running from his past. Now, he is moving to London and pledges to fulfil his only dream – making it big in the music industry. Not everyone has a place, though, and the competition is tough. As is his past catching up on him.

Louis is part of the biggest boy band of the world, and getting there had meant a lot of hard work, as well as sacrificing parts of his heart and soul. He’s still happy. Maybe not as happy as he could be, but who is he to complain?

Featuring Perrie as Harry’s adorable flatmate, Niall as his manager, and Liam and Zayn as Louis’ bandmates.

2. Reeling Through The Fall (40k)

AU. They hate each other. Except for when they don’t. 

3. A Thousand Miles From Comfort (74k)

It wasn’t like Louis was Lindsay Lohan or Justin Beiber. He’d had one fucking meltdown and a handful of public drunken accidents. And now he could never screw up ever again. He hit the STOP button on the treadmill and matched his pace as it slowed to a stop.

“It’s not break time yet!” Harry told Louis, tapping his watch with a stern expression. “Come on, you were doing so well! Don’t quit now! Ten more minutes and then you can have a break!”

“I don’t want to be here anymore,” Louis spat. “It’s not anything you did, okay? I just… I don’t know. I can’t do this. I hate playing the stupid media game. That’s what all of this is! There’s no point.”

In which Louis is a closeted gay actor and a recovering addict with a troubled past. Harry is the personal trainer who helps him get his life back in shape.

With Liam as Louis’ childhood best friend, Zayn as a famous R&B artist, and Niall as a fanboy.

(aka the trainer au)

4. Although We’re Miles Apart (10k)

Louis Tomlinson is a famous football player.
Harry Styles is a famous musician.
They’re in love, and long distance relationships are hard.

5. Bambi (18k)

“What’re you here for, exactly. I really would love to know.”

“Just here for a chat,” provokes Harry. “Lovely to get back home, you know. Got a turkey in the oven–”

“At three in the morning. Get real, Bambi.” Louis deadpans a look at Harry, his eyes emotionless as they bore into him. “You’re here for the zirconia, aren’t you.”

or the au where harry becomes an assassin and has a mission at louis’ house to steal the million dollar zirconia for zayn.

6. The Way You Make Me Feel (6k)

“You couldn’t last a damn day without trying to sleep with me.”

“I can last a whole fucking week,” Harry says, rising to Louis’ challenge.

“Wanna make a bet on that, Styles?”

“You’re on,” Harry grins.

Or, Disney AU where Louis and Harry try not to fuck in public places.
