1. Thought The Song Was Sung by 100percentsassy (12k)

Louis never auditioned for the X-Factor. Years later, Harry’s just another gay ex-boybander who lives alone with his cat… until Niall decides to take matters into his own hands and set up a profile for Harry on a dating website.

2. My English Love Affair by isthatyoularry (19k)

The thing about sleeping with a member of a famous indie band is that the inevitability of having a song written about you is most likely a hundred percent. The second thing is that in the end, nobody’s supposed to find out it’s about you.

The one where Harry writes a song about his English love affair and Louis sleeps with someone in White Eskimo and all he gets is a stupid song written about him.

fave fics + the dead of julywhimsicule

Being an Avenger means continuing to be Captain America and smiling and being honorable for the public and Harry does his best. But it doesn’t give him time to figure out who he is supposed to be once he takes off his uniform and puts the shield to the side. Just being Harry had always involved Louis, and Harry fears he doesn’t know how to exist without him.

or: Harry is Captain America, and Louis’ been dead for 70 years.

♡  fics for u, my pals ♡
Larry Fanfiction Classics

I present you…

… some popular fics most of you will have heard about, but maybe haven’t read (yet)!


Since I don’t want this to get out of hand, I’ll have to stop now. Of course, there are tons of other awesome beautiful absolutely amazing and well-written fics out there. I absolutely don’t want to limit the list to these few!

If you’ve always wanted to read one or the other of these, here’s your motivation: They’re great. :)

we’re still going, eight in the morning

title: we’re still going, eight in the morning
authors:
yoursongonmyheart, nooelgallagher
word count: 32k 
summary:

Harry washes his hands quickly before grabbing his phone. His screen lights up to 3 notifications.

DJTommo is now following you!

@DJTommo mentioned you in a tweet!

Direct Message from @DJTommo!

Harry yelps, throwing his phone to Niall who just barely catches it.

Niall looks down at the phone, seeing first the tweet, then the DM. He tosses the phone back to Harry, who nearly drops it. “What are ya doing, mate! Answer him!”

Harry thinks for a moment about what he wants to say. This is his chance to actually talk to Louis Tomlinson. Louis Tomlinson messaged him directly. He can say anything he wants. He begins typing, his fingers shaky.

Niall comes over to stand next to Harry and peers down, looking to see what he wrote. When he does, he lets out a groan.

…Or, the one where Harry owns a bakery, Louis is a radio DJ, and Niall and Liam roll their eyes at their incessant flirting.

Top 15 UNI AUs!

1. And I’ll judge the cover by the book by harrystylesandstuff (73k/chaptered)

[+] a Private University AU where Harry is a queer posh prince, Louis is a closeted troublemaker, and neither expect to understand each other the way they will.

2. Happy is the Heart that Still Feels Pain by alienharrry (17k)

[+] The last thing Harry needed was the hot RA helping him to make bad choices. Actually, that wasn’t true. The last thing Harry needed was to fall utterly, painfully, stupidly in love with him.

3. Orange Canvas by aclosetlarryshipper (25k)

A spring break (kind of) fake relationship AU

top fifteen teacher au

1. These Inconvenient Fireworks by everydayslike, mdasch  (190k)

Future AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.

2. nothing else but us right here by supernope (35k)

Louis sighs and gives himself a mental pep talk as he smooths his jumper down over his hips. He can do this. He can resist the draw of Harry Styles, because he is a responsible, mature adult, and as much as he wants to tangle his fingers in that mess of hair and map those ridiculous tattoos with his tongue, he does not want to get his daughter’s favorite teacher fired.

ACTOR!HARRY FIC REC

Whirlwind by dolce_piccante 

Acclaimed actor, Hollywood heartthrob, and Oscar nominee, Harry Styles, seems to have the world at his feet, but seeks out an old friend when he needs a date for his big night.

The Brightest Lights by rearviewdreamer

After watching yet another actor walk away with his Oscar, Louis is on the lookout for the role of a lifetime that might finally get him the one thing he has always wanted. He didn’t think coming out of his self-proclaimed break to do another film would be all that difficult, but that was before he met his new co-star.

Friends With Benefits (It Wasn’t Supposed To Happen This Way) by narryohlarry 

Louis and Harry are famous actors and are staring in their first movie together. They are familiar with each others work, but have never actually met each other. Now that they have been cast in the new movie, Friend With Benefits, the were going to be seeing a lot of each other.

First Day of Spring by harrystylesandstuff 

Harry is Louis’ winter boyfriend who helps him get his name known in the US, but not without a few complications along the way.

I’ve Been Wandering Round (But I Still Come Back to You) by veronicahague

“Harry had always been beautiful, but lately he’d blossomed into this tall, sexy, man and Louis was having trouble dealing with it. And so, it seemed, were his hormones.” or the one where Louis and Harry are best friends and co-stars on a popular television series and Louis inconveniently discovers he’s in love with him in the middle of a press tour.

Eighth Wonder of the World by photo41

London in the 1930s is bleak for most, and that includes Vaudeville performers Gemma and Harry Styles. When their theatre gets closed down, Gemma is saved from doing something desperate by a stranger who offers her the role of a lifetime- going on an oceanic adventure to ultimately film in Singapore- using a script written by Harry’s favourite playwright- Louis Tomlinson.

Drain to the Stars by roguenauticals

Louis lived a very quiet life at his inherited book shop in Notting Hill, until Oscar-winner Harry Styles walked through the door.

And this old world is a new world by ifidoitsyou

Louis works in a little coffee shop although he hates coffee but what can you do when you’re pretty much living day by day trying to ignore that dream of yours you’re too scared to pursue. And then Harry enters the scene, or more precisely the coffee shop. He’s beautiful and kind and funny and also famous and not in town for very, very long. But that doesn’t keep Louis from maybe falling for him a bit and his friends from randomly inviting him along to go golfing.

Infinity by fancyachatup

Closeted Harry Styles flies home to Youtuber and boyfriend Louis Tomlinson.

TOP 10 PUNK HARRY/ LOUIS FANFICS

Punk Harry

Louis may or may not fall in love with his arch enemy’s (aka his own brother) best friend, who just so happens to be in college.

A sixth form!AU where Harry is the fucked up bad boy with too many problems, Louis is the perfect rich boy with too much money and their schools are right across from each other. They meet at a party and that’s the last (and maybe the only) thing they need.

Louis has had a strict Christian upbringing that he never realized he resented until he meets Harry Styles, a boy who lives to rebel and doesn’t give a damn what anyone else thinks. But the better he gets to know Harry, the more he begins to realize that maybe Harry does care. And maybe “the children who God forgot” are closer to God than the devout will ever be.

Louis, to his horror, attends an elitist university in which the name Zayn Malik means something, Niall Horan doesn’t stop talking, there are pianos everywhere, and Harry Styles, only son of a drug-addled, clinically insane ex-rocker, has a perfect smile and empty eyes.

Harry is the hot 19 year old brother of Liam, Louis best friend. Louis isn’t a baby, he’s 17. But that doesn’t stop Harry from picking on him.

Louis is ready to find the love of his life, but first he has to stop falling for the punk rocker next door.
Inspired by this tweet:

“Suddenly, the door opened wide by itself, my heart thumping when I felt something push me back. I fell to the ground and gasped, feeling a little pain in my chest by the pressure and my bum hurt.
I looked up scared and gulped when I noticed a different person standing above me, the person having the same green eyes as mom but with curly hair instead.
“The Hell, Who the fuck are you and why are you trying to come in my room?!”“

Punk Harry meets restricted Louis and things sort of explode.

"I don’t have a good past. With boys. I’ve dated some crap guys who’ve done terrible things to me and I've…I’ve done some crazy shit with some guys, and Niall and Liam have always pulled me through, they’ve always had my best interests in mind. And they…they don’t think that you’re good for me.” Louis finished, sighing and looking down at the tiles. “And the least I can do is listen to them, because I really do adore you, but if I get with you and I fuck things up, like I tend to do, then I’ll lose their trust and yours, and I don’t want that. I can’t–I can’t deal with that. It’d kill me.”
[AU where Louis does ballet and Harry is the epitome of everything Louis’ friends want him to stay away from]

Harry still remembers the first tattoo he got…

PUNK LOUIS

Harry is the quiet kid in the back of his statistics class who writes a lot and dreams about Louis’ cheekbones . Louis needs a statistics tutor ASAP before he flunks and the quiet kid in the back of the class seems like a good choice. Harry wants to help Louis however he can and Louis wants to see how much he can make Harry blush.

Harry’s quiet and shy and does all his homework. Louis drives motorbikes and never turns up to school. Their respective friends think they’d be a cute couple.

It’s prom night and Harry’s all alone – still nerdy, still has those magnifying glasses of spectacles, and still a loser. But that night was nothing of the ordinary as two drunken blue eyes watched him with lust and he didn’t even know it. (Or the time when a nerdy Harry fucks the brains out of a drunk Louis)

No one really notices Marcel Styles. In fact, Marcel’s so invisible that if his teachers don’t call on him in lessons - and they rarely do - Marcel can go whole days without speaking to anyone other than his mum, his sister, Gemma, his cat, Dusty and the school librarian, Alma. And if he just so happens to have a tiny, miniscule crush on the footie captain, Louis Tomlinson, well, that’s no one’s business but his own. Until Louis notices him back…

where louis is intimidating he swears and harry’s kind of a dork and they like each other and there’s a blowjob involved somewhere

Just like a little cat,’ Louis thought later, as he drifted off to sleep. ‘A little kitten with his claws sunk right into me.’ It isn’t that terrible of a thought, after all.
………….
Louis is a psychology student with a tattoo count as high as his genius IQ. Harry is in a (sort-of) relationship with a homophobic man and hates himself a little more every day. Things fall apart and Louis puts him back together.
Or, the one in which Louis falls in love with a fragile boy and tells him every beautiful truth in the world, as long as it makes him happy.

flowercrown!Harry and punk!Louis

sequel to flowers in your hair (are like the ink that stains my skin) flowerchild!Harry and punk!Louis (Louis thinks he loves Harry)

AU. Louis’ a tattooed punk with a heart of ice who needs too little and Harry’s just a kid with eyes too wide and too bright who needs too much and maybe all they really need is each other. Or maybe not. Maybe it’s all about the blowjobs.

Where Harry is a flower child who works in a bakery and Louis is a guitarist who has no idea what it is he wants.

MOVIE AUS

and by movie aus i mean aus based on movies 

1. I would name the stars for you (I would take you there) by impetuous (91k/chaptered)

[+] Or a vaguely Notting Hill-like AU (or that made for TV Disney movie Starstruck if you’ve seen it… no? Just me?) starring popstar!Harry and bookkeeper/soulful poet!Louis; and including guest appearances by Fate, a wise elderly aristocrat, and lots and lots of pining.

2. The Dreams That You Wish by Keep_Calm_And_Read_Fic (68k/chaptered)

Cinderella/Ever After AU in which Louis is the world’s sassiest servant, Harry is a closeted prince with a deadline, Zayn is Harry’s chaperone, Liam is given the unenviable task of trying to distract Zayn long enough that his sister, Druscilla, can seduce Prince Harry (hint: doomed to failure) and Niall is the worlds most inappropriate fairy godfather.
