louis in the back hi

“Absolutely not,” Louis had said as soon as his publicist mentioned the Brits. He could be nominated for everything on the ballot and he’ll still never go anywhere near the Brits again.

She’d tried to convince him, talked about the bad optics of Liam up there alone while “we could be the greatest team the world has ever seen” echoed in the background. Louis wasn’t convinced. Louis is pretty confident that the last place Liam wants to see him is the Brits.

So he’s here, on the couch, with Doris and Ernest. He’s let them stay up late not for their own sake but for his, something for him to turn to if he needs to look away from the screen. They’d spent the whole show rearranging the cushions, jumping back and forth between the couch and the ottoman, and dragging their favorite blankets around on the floor.

When it happens, Louis isn’t quite prepared for the way his stomach clenches. “That’s your Uncle Liam,” he tells the twins, realizing that he’s leaning closer to the television.

Doris stands on the end of the couch and face-plants into the seat cushion. “Who’s Uncle Liam?”

“Well, you haven’t seen him since you were younger.” Louis doesn’t know how he should answer the question. He doesn’t know how he let it become a question that had to be asked.

Ernest drapes himself across Louis’s back. It helps.

Liam has curls like Louis hasn’t seen since 2011. He’s all bundled up in a pullover and a leather jacket, with studded details that make him look armored. Nothing as easy to grab as the lapel of a suit. Nothing as fragile as a row of buttons down the front of an expensive shirt.

The buttons had come off easier than Louis had expected, after the Brits last year. He could have undone them properly, but it felt better to fight something, to cause all the chaos he could with his mouth violently pressed to Liam’s. He could hear the pop of the threads and the click of each button on the hardwood floor of the front hall. Liam just tightened his grip on Louis’s hips and pulled him closer.

He’d spent close on six years trying to push Liam out of his comfort zone, prodding and demanding and pushing into his space. But it turned out there’s no such thing as outside Liam’s comfort zone, not when it comes to Louis. That night, the discovery felt like an unexpected drop, like misjudging the number of steps in a staircase.

Louis doesn’t know what to do without a boundary to push. Doesn’t know how to be around Liam now that he’s not something to crash into or climb or subvert.

When Liam’s done speaking, Louis tosses Doris over his shoulder and scoops Ernest up by the waist. He waves off Fizzy’s offer to help and hauls them to their bedroom, singing “Bedtime for you, bedtime for you.” A couple of books read, a couple of songs sung, two pairs of spindly arms in striped pajamas wrapped tight around his neck as he says goodnight. It’s a better choice than he made last year, he hopes.

Louis closes the bedroom door behind him and pauses halfway down the hall to tweet something, the ingrained habit of gratitude demanding attention now that the twins are settled. Once he starts the recording on his phone, the thanks come out of his mouth soft and automatic. So does the apology. Sorry again, although he’s only said it once. Sorry I can’t be there.

He’s not sure who he’s apologizing to.

Sharing Rooms

Remember how over the years Louis and Harry sharing dressing rooms has turned out to be an actual fact and not some fan scripted illusion ???

Lets see, starting from that time when nick and his crew went to see one direction.

According to Nick and Tina, harry’s dressing room- Dark in there, black sheets over the walls, scented candles, plush dark sofas, dark velvets and house plants !!!!

So, its dark in here, the walls have black sheets, i see scented candles and plush dark sofas BASICALLY A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WORLD !!!

Hence harry’s dressing room.

Oh there’s that HOUSE PLANT IN THE BACK !!!! And there’s LOUIS too in the room.

With his best friend’s father-in-law …and his football shirt hanging. ( *in harry’s dressing room*)  

Louis also did shoot a video in *harry’s dressing room*

Lets focus on this picture posted by their stylist, where both harry and louis’ clothes and shoes are kept side by side .

And here “L and H” sitting in all its glory !!

Now, the time in 2015 when it seemed like Larry were gonna come out and we had all these new facts and information given to us, one that adds to this “sharing the dressing room” is the information given by the tour rider that even the media picked up on.

Unrealitytv !!!

Sugarscape !!!

Hollywood life !!!

In conclusion - Louis and Harry shared the dressing room …resting on those dark sofas enjoying those scented candles they fought over which house plant to get.

Harry skyrockets to popstar fame through his performance on the X Factor. Louis, a friend from his drama club back home, remains close to Harry throughout his rise to success, offering encouragement, kisses, and, occasionally, a little ass.

LOUIS Tomlinson is back in touch with former flame Eleanor Calder after his split from American actress Danielle Campbell two weeks ago.

The shock move came after The Sun’s Bizarre column revealed that grieving Louis, 25, had split from Danielle after 14 months together.

The break-up came at a difficult time for the singer following the tragic death of his mum Johannah from cancer in December.

Now he has reached out to Eleanor, 24, in a bid to reignite their relationship.

The news comes after he followed her on Instagram.

A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “Louis has had a rough ride the past few months and Eleanor wants him to know she is there if he needs anybody to talk to.

“They were together for a number of years and Louis feels he can rely on her.”

Louis and Eleanor were in a relationship for four years after they were introduced by pal Harry Styles in 2011.

They split in March 2015 at the height of One Direction’s fame.

In July 2015 it emerged Louis was expecting a baby with 23-year-old Briana Jungwirth — but by that time the pair had split up.

He went on to date actress Danielle after they were spotted out together in November 2015 — while Louis’ ex Briana was pregnant with the singer’s son Freddie.

At the time of their split a source told The Sun’s Bizarre Column: “Louis and Danielle have made the decision to split up but they are still going to be mates.

“They’re still talking to each other and there is no bad feeling whatsoever.

“It’s really sad because Danielle has been there for Louis through this horrible time.

“She has stood by him, remained loyal and continued to be a great support, which is exactly what he needs.

“Sometimes these things just don’t work out and for Louis and Danielle this was the best way forward.”

Louis recently threw a party to celebrate his son Freddie’s first birthday two weeks ago.

Top 25 Larry Fics of 2016

I read a lot of fic and the majority of it is larry. I like making lists and I like larry so I thought I’d do some minimal research of the top 25 larry fics published/completed in 2016 in order of least to most kudos (with links). All of these fics are top notch so you should all check them out!

An honorable mentions list will probably come soon, because there are so many brilliant fics that don’t reflect in their kudos.

25.) I Love You Most by @alienproof (11k)

Friends with benefits has always been enough for Louis. Until, of course, it isn’t.

24.) Just Like the Wolf Before He Bites by @crazyupsetter (11k)

He’s loud, Louis is, and that’s far from unusual for him, but the volume of it still has Harry pulling back the curtain. There’s a half-formed thought in the back of his brain about telling Louis off, because it’s fucking half three in the morning, but then.

But then Harry’s eyes get stuck on the soft glint of Louis’ stubble in the light, and he’s making his way across the room before he even realizes it.

Louis, for his part, just tips his chin up to give Harry space and keeps talking, waving the joint in his hand around for emphasis. He doesn’t even bother to greet Harry, going on with his story to his semi-rapt audience, just settles a hand in between Harry’s shoulder blades and pushes him down firmly.

Harry just. Relaxes. His eyes slip closed, pushing his entire face into that spot underneath Louis’ chin, where his hair is still growing, neat and prickly. The scent of Louis’ cologne drifts into Harry’s nose, light and fresh, and it’s calming. Comforting. His breathing syncs up with Louis’ quickly, and Harry feels so much better than he had five minutes ago he almost wants to cry.

James Arthur meets up with former 'enemy' Louis Tomlinson and his girl group after he hinted at big collaboration

Now they’ve kissed and made up, Louis and James could be heading into the studio together

JAMES Arthur spent Thursday night with his old foe Louis Tomlinson after revealing the pair were working on music together.

The lads famously fell out after James branded the former One Direction star as a “little b***h” in 2013.

Louis, 25, went to the Hotel Café in Los Angeles to watch James in concert and afterwards they spent some time together.

Deep in conversation, the pair had a crafty smoke before heading back inside where Louis introduced James to his girlband.

Later on in the evening, Louis posted a picture of him and 28-year-old James sticking their fingers up to camera.

Their meeting comes just weeks after James told The Sun he was hoping to work with Louis on new music.

He said: “We talked quite a lot about collaborating.

“I just sent him a lot of tunes as I knew he was on the lookout. He has all my back catalogue.”

Referencing their spat, James explained: “We had a phone conversation to clear the air.

He got to see that I was a different person and that helped us bond.”

“Over the last couple of years we’ve had a few conversations.

“I did say to him: ‘Look, I shouldn’t have been so vocal about things back then’. I apologised.

“Don’t get me wrong, at first he was still a little bit p****d off and I was a bit p****d off with him – but we’ve worked it out over time, with a few false starts, and now we get on well.”

As well as calling Louis a “b***h” he once slammed One Direction, tweeting: “And f**k boybands! Bring on the hate I don’t wanna be popular. Apart from JLS who are genuinely the coolest people I’ve met in music.”

During their feud James also called the band a “marketing product” and said that “certain members turned on him” after his remarks.

He added: “I have nothing against One Direction fans or the band itself I have an issue with one member.

“They insulted me when I had nothing against them so now I don’t pull any punches when I’m asked.

“[They] just said some things via text and the things that were said warrant my dislike for them so that’s it.. I’m not being ungrateful.”

The person in question was Louis, with James later clarifying his claims were made about “the one I called a little b***h, because obviously he wouldn’t say the things he said to my face.”

Louis is the commodore’s son who is forced to become a part of Harry’s crew when he is captured.

A gust of salty air pushed over the deck as the information resonated in the night sky. The only audible sound was the continuous wallop of waves wrecking against the ship. Louis kept his breathing even and his eyes locked with Malik’s, refusing to be the first to break.

“Now, that is interesting.” 

Malik’s head whipped towards the quarterdeck, his eyes wide as they settled by the wheel of the ship. Louis gawked as the entire crew bowed their head in respect. Some mechanically took a few steps back. Malik straightened his spine and clasped his hands behind his back, his eyes downcast. Instinctively, Louis followed suit and trained his eyes on the deck beneath his knees.

The lethargic sound of heels clicking against wood resonated across the sea. Footsteps descended the staircase, every assured step creating a menacing aura as it grew closer. Perspiration gathered along Louis’ palms as the rhythmic sound halted in front of him.

“Captain,” Malik greeted.

Louis watched out of his peripheral as Malik’s boots shuffled back a few steps. Sweat matted the hair along the nape of Louis’ neck as he waited for something to happen. He felt as if a sharp blade was twisting his gut as the silence became tangible.

There was a metallic slide of a sword being pulled out of its sheath, the sound startling Louis out of his cocoon of sterile shock. His shoulders jumped as the tip of a blade flattened underneath his jaw. Louis’ distorted reflection stared back at him in the polished metal. Engraved rose petals twisted his appearance as they crawled up the length of the sword. The sword lifted and took Louis’ chin with it.

Standing in front of Louis was Captain Styles.

Baristas Daniel and Louis w/ their picky customer Lestat from our coffee shop AU!<3 @wicked-felina commissioned @sheepskeleton to make this for me as an early birthday gift, so sweet! I love it *u*

  • Lestat making hearteyes at Louis,

  • but he got the name right on the cup! 
  • The little details! 
  • Dan is actually making the cappuccino with the proper technique! 
  • Dan is in on this, he definitely texted Lestat that Louis was back from his break so he couldn’t very well disappear
  • I am so touched. gawd, Lestat even has a teensy lil dimple!

Or a Valentine’s Day story where Harry has a really fit neighbour, and his cat is a thief. 

A famous/non-famous AU in which Louis banters back and forth with his new record company on Twitter, only to find out that Harry is the man behind the tweets. 

Or, the one where Harry loses the love of his life on New Years Eve and finds him again, six months later, ready to open some poorly-stitched wounds.

It was probably a huge mistake for Louis to let his former One Night Stand move into his spare room, especially when said One Night Stand doesn’t seem to remember him.

He’s literally waiting for the pap to cue him out. ‘Tomlinson, let’s do it’. Then he walks out. Then the pap reminds them that they don’t have their driver. So Louis goes back to the beginning of the path and calls his driver to do the walk again.

There’s nothing you can do or say to mask this. There’s not ‘he was out for a smoke’ because he walks out smoking (and has done it several times in pap pictures). He starts walking AFTER HIS CUE. He walks back when he realises he doesn’t have a driver to do the walk again. There was no need to do that, the paps could still see him and take pictures at the beginning of the path, he could’ve just waited for the driver at the curb.

I don’t want to hear an anti justify Louis’s (or any celebrity’s) pap walks EVER AGAIN. Anyone that’s still in denial at this point is beyond any hope.

The sunset tonight was so beautiful that I had to pull over to take it in.  Earlier this year I lost someone very special to me and on that day it poured down rain before the biggest and most beautiful rainbow appeared right outside my door. I found it a huge source of comfort at the time and tonight’s sunset felt similar, almost as if the sky was honoring a special person that had passed on.  It reminded me of my own heartache and made my heart break for Louis’ family all over again.

As a mom, I found many things about Jay very inspiring.  But the most significant thing for me was witnessing the love, adoration and respect which was so evident between her children and herself.  She never shied away from expressing her love or support for them, even in the most public forums and when asked, Louis and his siblings never held back either.  That may seem like a strange thing to recognize, but as someone who never had a good relationship with my own mom, I have recognized moms like Jay my entire life. When I had my own children, I vowed to do things differently from my mom and I have stayed true to that promise.  Not a single day goes by that I don’t tell each of them (usually more than once) how much I love them and how proud of them I am.  

I could go on and on about so many things such as the work that she’s done for charity because that was another part of her that I admired immensely, but this would get far too long. Basically what I want to say is that if my children grow up and speak of me the way that her children speak of her, then I will consider myself among the lucky ones. 

My kids roll their eyes at me when I point out things like pretty sunsets.  So much so that I almost stopped pointing them out.  But that stops now. I will always pull over to show them the beautiful things that still exist in this world and hopefully, some day in the distant future, they will do the same for their own children.  Rest in peace, Jay.  You were a good mom and a lovely person. 💗

Imagine all of us have two friends who have been dating for years and we just know one day they are going to get married, and then after like years of dating and posting cute photos of themselves and hanging out with everyone together, they just fall off the planet and nobody sees them together for like a year and they stop posting photos and none of us have a clue what is up with them.

And then we start hearing rumors that they got engaged and are planning a wedding, but they haven’t told anyone about it, so we are all just hanging out waiting for the announcement and the wedding invitation, but they don’t come, Instead, we get an article announcing that $80 million dollars was spent on this wedding that nobody actually knows about. Then we get a few people saying, “I heard there is definitely a wedding taking place.” Then another dude or two says, “I had to buy my tux because I’m in the wedding.” Meanwhile all us are still waiting to hear from the happy couple and are still waiting for our invitations to arrive in the mail and nothing.

Then one random day we get a video of the couple kissing at the alter and then the camera pans to the crowd and nobody is there and the groom says, “Uh, where in the world is everyone?” And we just stare at them through the screen because we know why nobody is there. YOU NEVER ANNOUNCED YOU WERE ENGAGED NOR DID YOU SEND OUT ANY INVITATIONS. How the heck were we supposed to just know about the wedding and show up for it?

That is why I do not understand this plan for Harry’s supposed album. I would love to be able to get excited for my newly engaged friends. I would love to get an invite in the mail. I would love to know when and where and how and who is involved. I would love to go buy a nice dress and a nice gift. But, alas, I can’t do any of those things because NOBODY will announce the damn thing. I don’t think it’s asking for much to at least get a confirmation that a wedding is taking place, especially if they want me to show up for it.
