I’ve been reading a lottt lately, so here are my new favorites from the last few months!
you got me faded- 8k. louis has been tasting wine for 2 hours when he meets harry at a winery. things go well, considering.
Pining For You- 9k. Harry sells Christmas trees. Louis doesn’t mean to buy so many of them.
Unbelievers- 137k. It’s Louis’ senior year, and he’s dead set on doing it right. However, along with his pair of cleats, a healthy dose of sarcasm and his ridiculous best friend, he’s also got a complicated family, a terrifyingly uncertain future, and a mortal enemy making his life just that much worse. Mortal enemies “with benefits” was not exactly the plan.Or: The one where Louis and Harry definitely aren’t friends, and football is everything.
let’s savour what we’re falling over- 20k. west wing au (loosely); in other words everyone works in the white house and louis likes getting coffee with the washington post reporter in his briefing room.
That Sounds Fake But Okay- 46k. Harry Styles is a rookie journalist forced to work the gossip desk at a major New York magazine. Louis Tomlinson is the A-list actor who doesn’t appreciate Harry or his articles.
My English Love Affair- 19k. 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.
Panorama- 34k. Louis’ cabin crew at Panorama Airlines are in need of a new member. Cheeky Harry Styles joins the group, but to his mild disappointment Louis determinedly has no intention of joining the Mile High Club.Their first kiss might not be their first kiss.
Just For Me- 9k. Harry is a supermodel with a fake boyfriend. Louis is the captain and star forward of Manchester United with a fake girlfriend. They should have no problem having a completely platonic lunch between friends.(They do.)
to be a muse may be enough- 6k. When Zayn came to him with a job, Louis never expected to be sat in a studio, wearing lipstick and reading a book about Death whilst being plugged with a vibrator. Did he also mention he’s being filmed by the fittest photographer he’s ever seen?a.k.a the hysterical literature AU i can’t believe hasn’t been written yet
anything you ask and more- 19k. louis knows that he’s in love the second harry begins speaking about the bolsheviks. (or, louis is a history teacher & harry is the fit curator that he desperately wants to mongol invade him, however many times niall tells him he’s a psychopath.)
Cupid’s Chokehold- 35k. Louis is a Cupid who tries to match up Niall and Harry. It doesn’t work out as planned.
Having only started following football after the last World Cup (and seeing as I’m suffering at the moment with no league football to watch for another couple of months) I asked recently for your favorite United games of old. The responses I received were amazing, and now that I am not slammed with work tonight I wanted to put everything together in one place, as a reference post of sorts. While I initially had a pre 2008 period in mind given the replies it now goes until 202-13, the last season before I started watching we were any good in. Thank you to everyone who reblogged and sent asks and helped me construct a wonderful summer survival guide – you guys rock! :)
