He’s playing football at one of the top universities in England and he should love everything about his life right now, but instead he’s moving backwards. How does your past fit into your present? Louis is still figuring it out. 
((ITS SO GOOD))



EDIT: I totally linked the wrong fic…I meant to link…

Soft Hands, Fast Feet, Can’t Lose 112k
American Uni AU. Harry Styles is a frat boy football star from the wealthy Styles Family athletic dynasty. A celebrity among football fans, he knows how to play, he knows how to party, and he knows how to fuck (all of which is well known among his legion of admirers).Louis Tomlinson is a student and an athlete, but his similarities to Harry end there. Intelligent, focused, independent, and completely uninterested in Harry’s charms, Louis is an anomaly in a world ruled by football.A bet about the pair, who might be more similar than they originally thought, brings them together. Shakespeare, ballet, Disney, football, library chats, running, accidental spooning, Daredevil and Domino’s Pizza all blend into one big friendship Frappucino, but who will win in the end?


OOPS but they are both good fics.

Thank you so much, nonnie! This makes me so happy, you have no idea! The fact that anyone still reads/cares about my writing is awesome!

 I definitely *want* to finish Learning To Breathe, and I know exactly how I want the story to go/end, I just need to find the motivation/inspiration to actually write it. This message is definitely making me want to open up the doc and at least attempt it, so we’ll see how that goes!  I really appreciate you taking the time to send me this message…you’re a doll! <33

Fic Recs: College AUs

Some of my faves:

(PART ONE)

1. Faking It (thecellardoor) - Harry pretends to date his best friend to escape unwanted attention from a too insistent classmate and hopes it won’t blow up in his face. Featuring embarrassing dildo accidents, awkward boners, longing, first times, late night conversations, emotional discoveries and Niall as the exasperated friend with bad advice.

2. Your Name Is Tattooed On My Heart (mcpofife) - Louis is ready to find the love of his life, but first he has to stop falling for the punk rocker next door.

3. Learning To Breathe (youcomecrash) - He’s playing football at one of the top universities in England and he should love everything about his life right now, but instead he’s moving backwards. How does your past fit into your present? Louis is still figuring it out.

4. Orange Canvas (aclosetlarryshipper) - Few can handle Louis Tomlinson on the dance floor, much less match him in skill and fervor. Louis has obviously met his soul mate; he just never expected him to be wearing a red snapback and to chew gum like an entitled Mercedes owner.

5. Bring Out Feelings In Me I Never Show (tomorrows) - Louis accidentally hires a felon to be his fake boyfriend for Thanksgiving.

6. From Eight Until Late, I Think About You (supernope) - After finding out that his University of Brighton roommate has a YouTube channel, Harry starts up his own channel, on which he posts videos of himself doing weekly challenges. He strikes up a friendship with Louis, a popular youtuber in London, that starts in the comments on their videos and progresses to texting, skyping, and talking about each other in their own videos far too often. They fall for each other long-distance, but put off meeting face-to-face as long as possible, too nervous that they’ll screw it all up.

1. Learning To Breathe (youcomecrash) - He’s playing football at one of the top universities in England and he should love everything about his life right now, but instead he’s moving backwards. How does your past fit into your present? Louis is still figuring it out.

2. Hold My Breath (zarah5) - It’s possible — possible — that his three-week ban from the football pitch makes Louis just a tad antsy. Surely it’s not so bad that it warrants punishment in the form of his friends signing him up for a yoga class? Either way, Louis is determined to hate every second of it. He didn’t count on a yoga instructor who wears flower-patterned headscarves and smiles like summer won’t end.

3. Sing When You’re Winning (hazmesentir) - Harry’s a chronically underpaid magazine intern and Louis is the Premier League’s first gay footballer and pretty much the last thing they need is each other.

4. Pull Me Under (zarah5) - As the first British footballer to come out at the prime of his career, it helps that Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term, committed relationship. Even if that relationship is fake.

5. We Made These Memories For Ourselves (supernope) - Louis is a footballer, Harry owns a bakery, and they’re having a baby.

6. Common (cori lannam) - Henry VIII ruined it for everybody. Now the king or queen can only marry a person chosen by the magic of the church, or disaster will befall Britain. Prince Louis, heir apparent to the British throne, dislikes most things about his inheritance–but most of all that it could keep him from finding the real love of his life.

Life isn’t perfect. It’s not supposed to be. We all make mistakes. You bash your head against the wall and you get hurt, but you walk away and make the best of it. And that’s what makes it life, Brenna, not perfection. You’ll never find happiness if you only expect to find a perfect life. Happiness is something we reach for while we try to learn from our disappointments.
