- Take My Breath Away
, by @realitybetterthanfiction: There is a prestigious school in the British Royal Navy
classified as Premier Delta - or as it is known by its flyers, 1D. These
select pilots are an elite set of Naval lieutenants who are trained in
the skill of aggressive aerial combat. They are instruments of war,
trained in times of peace. They are dogfighters, relentless and fearless
in their mission to protect their beloved country. From their lofty
vantage, they are always watching, waiting, and ready to lay it all on
the line.Lt. Harry Styles, call sign Sparrow, is a prodigy when it comes to
flying. The owner of an unrivaled Naval pedigree, being a pilot was
always written in the stars for Harry. With his trusty RIO, Lt. Niall
Horan, Harry has made an unprecedented ascension in the ranks of the
Naval aerial combat elite, and has been recruited to the esteemed
Premier Delta flight school, carrying on his family’s legacy. What he
finds there are unexpected friendships, perilous challenges, and
something beyond what he ever thought possible. Because as his father
had always told him, before the great Captain Styles went tragically
missing in combat, you don’t fall in love with the sky, you fall in love
with what keeps you on the ground.
Larry Top Gun AU (153k). Yes i’m gonna talk about it again. This is one of the best fic i read in 2016 so far. YEAH REALLY. Maybe look at the TW before, but OMG, the feels. (and also amazing smut) (power bottom Louis mostly). READ THIS NOW
somewhere I can rest my soul
, by @lourrynavy :
“I’m Louis Tomlinson,” the boy says, holding his hand out. Glancing down at it, Harry starts at the word beautiful written there, just along his pointer finger. It seems someone else knows exactly how stunning Louis is.
Willing himself not to act like a complete and utter prat, Harry
takes Louis’ hand in his own and quietly murmurs, “It’s nice to meet
Or, the AU where the way your soulmate sees you is tattooed onto your skin.
Larry soulmate AU and X Factor Era (3k) : absolutely cute and fluffy and just *SIGH*. Soulmate AU with tattoos are my weakness. No smut.
, by @alivingfire :
Tomlinson looks Liam over, tilting his head. “Are you a swimmer as well?”
“Yeah,” Liam says, a little cautiously. Harry wonders if it’s
Tomlinson’s fame or the unimpressed eyebrow that’s making Liam wary.
“Distance, I’m doing the 1500m. Harry here’s a sprinter.”
“Ah,” says Tomlinson, turning his glinting eyes back to Harry. “So
you’re not an endurance man.” A beat passes, and his grin grows, wide
and filthy. “Shame.”
Harry Styles is Team Great Britain’s newest swimmer, and has
spent his whole life training for this moment, a chance at the gold
medal in the Rio 2016 Olympics. All his training, hard work, and
dedication to no distractions is tested when he’s assigned to the same
Rio apartment as Louis Tomlinson, British gymnast and Harry’s childhood
Larry Olympics AU (21k) : I want 100k of this thank you ! I’m still screaming about the smut, just saying. (bottom Harry).
I’m always tired but never of you
, by @lalalaartje : “Shall we go, then?” Harry asked, surprising Louis a bit
with the invitation, though not at all unpleasantly. “What does your
Lonely Planet suggest?” Louis grinned, grabbing the travel guide
from his back pocket and started reading out loud, Harry chuckling at
the stupid jokes he threw in between. He quite liked the other guy, even
if they just met and likely had nothing in common but their motherland. After
a while of playing pretentious tour guide, Harry leaned over his
shoulder while they were waiting to cross the street, his long curly
hair tickling Louis’ cheek. “That seems like a nice place,” he pointed
at a picture of a small, secluded square. “Let’s start there.” Harry
is a photographer on his way to a summer course in Paris. Louis is a
almost paediatric resident on his way home after a month of backpacking
through Europe. They meet after their train is stranded in a foreign
city. All they have is one night before they each leave for their own
destination, so they decide to make the most of it. Or the Before
Sunrise adaptation that somehow decided to be a hospital fic with
doctor!Louis who pines after photographer!Harry who is currently at the
other side of the North Sea.
Larry AU (30k) : starting like a Before Sunset adaptation (if you haven’t seen the movie, don’t talk to me anymore), then progressing in an angsty fic (read the tags for TW, but warning for very stressed Louis and alcoholism). Barely smutty. Very nice.
Come As You Are
AFangirlFantasy : “Mr. Tomlinson, You have been cordially invited to Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School’s, Class of 2006 Tenth Year Reunion.” or highschool
reunion au where Harry is Niall’s flatmate, Zayn and Liam are married,
and Louis is just trying to find his way back home.
Larry High School Reunion AU (12k) : “long time no see” fic, nice ! So smut at all. (also side past Elounor)
love and kickin’
, by @camiii :
When Nick looks up in direction of the pitch he nearly chokes on his mouthful of coffee.
The Arsenal player standing behind the sideline, ball in his hands and number 28 splayed across his back, is fit. Really fit. In
all honesty Nick can only see him from behind, but the first thing he
notices is a quite spectacular bum and nicely muscled thighs and, well,
football might have its redeeming aspects after all. Or
the fic where Nick has no interest in football but is dragged to a
football match, Louis is the Arsenal player that catches his attention,
and maybe there are some redeeming qualities to the game after all.
Tomlinshaw AU (60k) : it’s been a long time without a good Tomlinshaw fic ! Absolutely not ansgty , amazing smut, and so much fluff! I love it !
keep them in your mason jars (i’ve come home)
, by @since-he-was-eighteen :
“I saw them there and I wanted to know what they were. I thought
they were maybe tea lights or something but there’s things written on
them. Like middle school and other happy things. Do you collect things?”
“Memories,” Louis blurts out, hand so tight on Harry’s
shoulder his fingers could bruise into him. But he needs something to
hold onto in fear he may fall over and pass out if he doesn’t. “I
collect memories.” But the silence between them is
unsettling. As each cold second passes, the thought of Harry shouting
out loud that he’s a freak is doubling. The thought of Harry running
away and never coming back to him again is tripling. Until Harry speaks. “You have fifty mason jars sitting outside with memories inside them?”or
the high school au where louis believes he can hold memories inside
mason jars to last a lifetime, and harry holds both louis and his unique
tradition deep in his heart. otherwise known as the mason jar fic.
Larry high school AU (84k) : very beautiful story, angsty (very depressed Louis, TW), a lot of pinning, great smut (bottom louis). The slow pace is really amazing and not so commun in fics.
to kill the mess we’ve made
, by @paynner : And when he’s finally standing, Liam fussing over him, rubbing
his hand at the red mark blooming on Harry’s forehead, does Harry learn
two things:One, he wasn’t actually hit that hard, and Tommo–or Louis, rather–is just as pretty when Harry is staring at him head-on and,Two, Louis is the Adidas model he’s going to be working with on today’s photo shoot.(or: AU where Harry and Louis are both models, and they decide being friends-with-benefits is a great idea. It isn’t.)
Larry Models friends with benefits AU (42k) : amazing smut (bottom Louis) and angsty (of course).
I get it okay I get why Harry is obsessed with Coldplay and Chris Martin after seeing Coldplay tonight. They put on a FANTASTIC show but seriously Chris flails around the stage like Harry will in twenty years, like Harry does RIGHT NOW, and Chris is so dramatic I stg he literallY LAID ON STAGE in confetti and sang fix you like this was a damn cabaret club (SOUND FAMILIAR WELL IT SHOULD IF YOU KNOW HARRYS DRAMATIC ASS) and the whole band is wearing rainbows and there are rainbow lights and rainbow confetti streams and THERE IS SO MUCH BAND LOVE AND FAN LOVE OH MY GOD CHRIS MARTIN AND HARRY STYLES ARE SO SIMILAR I CANT BELIEVE IT
