I was tagged by @a-writerwrites to tell you all what my WIPs are lately and god…there are like, so many. I apologize. They’re all larry!
1. I started my HL summer exchange fic last night and I can’t say much about it because I’m not sure if my recipient it on tumblr, but just know that it’s gonna be SO CUTE AND SUMMERY!
2. I’m like 12,000 into a girl!direction story for @cuethetommo called “Something Sensational” (because using Britney Spears lyrics for my titles is my jam.) It’s a American AU/Catholic all girl’s school AU where Louis is a sassy confident soft butch girl and Harry is a transfer student who has a debilitating crush on her. There are a lot of sing a longs in it, and I know some people don’t dig girl!direction but I promise it’s gonna be HOT.
3. A currently untitled bootcamp/X Factor fic about kink exploration and power play. It’s mostly for @justlarried who was like, “phoenix will you write me a watersports fic” and I somehow I ended up writing like 10k of exposition oops. It’s eventually happening though!
4. “Perfect Fit” which is a size kink story about Harrys enormous prick and Louis’s more modest, user friendly model. It’s X Factor era and it sounds like it should be a fun PWP but it’s actually kind of deep and sad and a nice metaphorical exploration of Louis and his perceived shortcomings and how much Harry fucking loves him.
5.ANOTHER currently untitled X Factor/bungalow fic I’ve been calling “the texting story” even though that’s not even close to accurate anymore. It switches POV and it has a little bit more of a muted, melancholy tone than my other X Factor fic, and I don’t know what else to say about it save for that it’s already like 15k words, and it started out as a gay chicken fic for @verilyisay but turned into something else really quickly, although there is a drunken, midnight pool-chicken game at one point where Harry is naked. (Vee I really will write a gay chicken fic for you one day, I promise!)
6. “Watching Me Watching You,” a circle jerk/mutual masturbation bungalow era fic that is mostly done but I keep reworking it over and over again for some reason? IDK? Harry is cheeky and absurd in it and Louis is sort of along for the ride, it’s basically a smutty PWP.
7. “That Boy” the beginning of an American college AU where Louis is sage and mature second semester senior and Harry is fresh out of high school and they’re both in the same Mythology lecture because Louis might have missed a few major requirements at some point. It’s a enemies to friends to lovers fic with hate sex and possible size Ziam because I’m mostly writing for my very wonderful friend Andrew, who loves larry hate sex, uni AUs, and Ziam. I will probably never finish it but like, 7k words of it exists, so, maybe?!
8. “Dramatic Irony” a Marcel/Louis fic where Louis is the new drama teacher at the Catholic school Marcel works at as the resident IT boy (I love Catholic school AUs ok). Louis recently moved from London and is convinced that he’s cursed because he once said McBeth in a theater, and Marcel has like 10 illegal cats in his apartment all named after Star Trek characters has a thing for boys with English accents. They both think the other one wouldn’t possibly be interested, so there are loads of Hijinks and Pining and Misunderstandings and Bed Sharing and drunken trips to the Fiesta Cantina in West Hollywood. I’m about 12k into it, which is apparently the word count I get out before I become distracted and write something else.
10. A possibly unsalvageable mess, which was the first thing I ever wrote in this fandom. I wrote a fic where…the baby…IS REAL OMG I CAN’T EVEN SAY IT, ugh, forgive me??! Anyway is alternated between present day and the X Factor, and TXF part is about 30k and totally cute and one day I’m just gonna rework that and post it but I literally can’t even look at the document without wanting to puke, so, not sure if that all ever actually happen.
I think that’s all! If you don’t count the 10 other TXF pics I have where there are only like 1k of notes written.

Like many of you, I wait (not so patiently sometimes) for new chapters of my favorite WIPs. Most of the time, I won’t put WIPs on a recommendation list because it leads to heartbreak. But here are the ones that I’m reading now that I’d recommend to anyone. I’d wait forever for these updates, I’m just so glad that these authors are writing. UPDATED December 2015
That Sounds Fake but Okay by dancingontheceiling - 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.
Or Brûlantby iris_avis - Louis is a ballet dancer (who doesn’t really believe in himself) and Harry is the hot-shot instructor willing to show him the way.
Time Bomb by ThisSentimentalHeart - Louis is an A-list actor (with a boyfriend) and Harry is a closeted musician.
California Soldby @isthatyoularry - Notoriously closeted boyband member Harry Styles is famous on a global scale, meanwhile Louis, as his best friend, is back home in Manchester, living the typical life of a 24 year old. When Harry needs Louis with him in LA, a publicity stunt gone wrong changes their friendship forever. A fake-relationship AU between two lifelong best friends.
All the World’s a Stage by @embrofic - Harry Styles has been an actor since the age of thirteen, playing women on the stage of The Swan, but with age has come flagging success and the audience’s scorn.Lord Louis Tomlinson is the Earl of Doncaster, enjoying the luxuries afforded to nobility all of his life, but has a secret that could have him tried as a heretic.While Harry struggles with his identity and Louis knows himself all too well, both feel lost in their worlds and seek out refuge in each other. Yet the King’s Law means they are risking more than social outcasting, but death.
College AU where Harry studies law and psychology. Louis is a philophobic frat boy who’s majoring in acting, plays footie and needs tutoring in psychology. Of course they hate each other but that doesn’t stop them from having a ridiculous amount of sexual tension.
Louis is a frat boy with a drinking problem who doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life, and Harry is a psychology student who always takes care of him and might just be exactly what Louis doesn’t want, but really needs.
