we're not friends, we could be anything

by nooelgallagher, yoursongonmyheart

The next second, Harry is firing back, “If I wanted to kill you I could have just poisoned your fajitas.”

Louis rolls his eyes. “Clever boy.”

Harry feels his skin start to prickle with irritation. The way Louis talks to him, so condescending… Like he’s smarter than Harry… Fuck that.

“I don’t have time for this,” Harry says. “Some of us have schoolwork to do. And jobs to get to. So if you’ll excuse me.”

Harry doesn’t wait for a reply before he pushes past Louis, hoisting his bag further up his shoulder and rushing towards the door. No, not rushing. That would imply Louis is chasing him out. He walks to the door hastily.

He’s not sure, but he thinks he hears Louis mutter “Fucking wanker” before the door to the flat clicks shut behind him.

…Or, the one where Harry and Louis are unlikely uni flatmates who definitely don’t like each other and definitely won’t fall in love (even if Liam and Niall think otherwise).

Always by JamieJam93 (85k)

Fast forward to 2018, on the night of One Direction’s last ever concert, and Harry has yet to move on. It’s not as sad as it seems-he still lives his life and, for the most part, he’s happy-but he knows that Louis was his one true love and is trying to prepare himself for a life completely without the other when an accident erases Louis’s mind of all of his memories. In reliving the moments with him, trying to make him remember, Harry comes to find that maybe he never really forgot them at all and maybe, like him, he hadn’t moved on either.

Gold Running Through My Veins

by hazzayoudoing

Harry can’t help himself when he leers. No one ever said you had to be unaffected by your own teammate’s body. Louis has a great one. He’s compact with muscle, curves in places Harry could only dream to touch one day. They hate each other, on the surface. It’s always been this way. Some ribbing here, some eyebrow raises there. But Harry would be lying if he was forced to admit he’s never thought of Louis in a different way.

“Take a picture, Styles. It’ll last longer,” Louis says as he ambles past with Zayn. His board shorts brush Harry’s shoulder, water droplets cool to the touch.

“Fuck off,” Harry responds. He’s got his part to play.

Or, an Olympic gymnastics AU that finds sworn enemies Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson on the same Olympic team, battling it out for gold medals in Belgium while they fall, quite stubbornly, in love. Featuring a steamy striptease in an empty gym, Harry canoodling with a gymnast from another country, a bit of sight-seeing in gorgeous Belgium and some really delicious waffles.

Welcome to HL Christmas Time Fanfiction Exchange

I hope I’m not the only person who loves the atmosphere of Christmas, the family warmth, happiness in the air and kindness all around. There’s not enough fics of Harry and Louis in that beautiful, magical time of the year which is Christmas, and following it New Year’s Eve, and I made this exchange to change it. Hope you’re as excited about this exchange as I am.

How to sign up?

Few rules

Harry and Louis must be your main pairing. Other side pairings are more than welcome though.

You must send in at least two prompts, so writers have at least little choice of what they would prefer to write. You can send to 5 prompts if you only want.

Every prompt has to have something to do with Christmas or New Year if someone doesn’t celebrate Christmas. It doesn’t have to be a main thing about the story, but the plot has to happen around Christmas time or New Year’s Eve and it would be nice if it was noticeable at least in some details, so it fits in that time of a year (like Christmas songs in the radio, light on the trees in the park and so on).

The minimal word count for a fic is 3000 words.

Be specific in letting us know what you won’t, can’t or suck at writing and what you like and want to write. It’s going to be much easier to assigns prompts and there’s a much bigger chance you get prompts you might actually really like.

You need a beta for your fic, so it doesn’t have any grammar or spelling mistakes for sure. If you have someone who was doing that for you earlier or know someone who would help you with that that’s great, but if you don’t we will help you find someone.

Let me know if you need more time to write your fic or when you’re dropping out. You get three months to write but I understand that things sometimes doesn’t work as we want it to and when the deadline is getting closer you don’t have anything written. There shouldn’t be any problems with getting an extension, but please let me know about it.

Do you want to help?

That’s amazing! You can be a beta reader, pinch-hitter or britpicker. All you need to  do is to fill in this form.

If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask.

And last thing:

Reblog this post please!

- 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 you.” 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.

- Oh Glory  , 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 crush.

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  , by 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).

better angels

by mysterymachine

Dear Louis,

Of all the people I could have met, it seems you’re the one my heart belongs to. You’re my sun, my moon, and all my stars. How could I have ever known you’d be my angel?




Louis Tomlinson ends up in a place he doesn’t know and tries to find himself, while Harry means to do the opposite and tries to lose himself.

Oh yeah, and Louis is an angel that fell from the sky.

“I’m not sure about this.” Harry whispered quietly from the passenger seat of his best friend’s car. The blond girl sighed leaning back in her seat, tearing her eyes off the house part in front of them.

“Harry…it’s just a house party.” She reassured quietly, touching his hand that was resting on the center console. “Stop overreacting.” He took in a shaky breath taking his eyes off a drunk couple to stare at his friend. “Besides love, you and Louis used to be best friends in high school. I do-”

“Yeah Dani, before we fucked and he stopped answering my texts.”

title: a fully armed battalion (to remind you of my love)

length: 5.6k

warning: ft. really bad poetry as a wooing technique 


“He was flirting with you by the way,” Niall says casually once he’s finished saying goodbye to Louis and he’s joined Harry outside.

“No he wasn’t,” Harry replies automatically, feeling his heart clench at the thought. Was he?

Niall simply raises a mocking eyebrow in response before wrapping his scarf twice around his neck.

“Not that it matters!” Harry says quickly, eyes widening. “I wouldn’t care even if he did because he’s awful and the worst.

Everyone at Hogwarts knows that Professor Styles and Professor Tomlinson absolutely despise each other. It’s too bad that they’re in love.

Here’s a silly little thing I wrote for the @hlspringexchange2016 :):)
