Fake/Pretend Relationships is one of the best tropes because we always know how it’s going to end! Here's 4 Ziam Pretend Relationship fics.

1. let’s pretend it’s love by wafflehood (68 465 words)

Pretend!boyfriends fic in which Liam and Zayn get papped while hamming it up for Louis and Eleanor, and management decides the easiest way to deal with the resulting hysteria is to let it run its course.

2. fooled around and fell in love by tachycardia (15 717 words)

“I have a proposal - a proposition,” Liam corrects quickly. “For you.”

Liam and Zayn pretend to be engaged.

3. Nobody Knows You Baby (The Way I Do) by Superwholockinwolves (13 300 words)

Zayn and Liam accidentally get nominated for cutest couple at school and Louis makes a bet with them that they won’t win.

(AKA the one where everyone was betting and nothing is accidental)

4. Be My King (I’ll Be Your Queen) by Superwholockinwolves (15 010 words)

That one where Zayn’s a royal bad boy and Liam’s his PR agent/Personal Assistant and basically everyone knew they had feelings for each other before they did.

Bonus fic: Assumed Relationship

the truth or something beautiful by blackwaferers (11 795 words)

“Oh,” Liam says like he’s been hit in the sternum, turning to Zayn with his eyes wide and running his hands back through his hair. “Oh my God, that’s it. Your family, they must have thought – like, because you invited me back home for Christmas and, oh, God – they think we’re boyfriends.”
