Hey, I was thinking maybe you could write about Harry and Y/N being celebrities and having to do a PR stunt. They both hate PR stunts because they are in love with their current girlfriend/boyfriend (which r okay with the PR stunt). Harry and Y/N end up falling for each other.

amazing anon! I might have tweaked it a little bit, but thank you so much for
sending it to me!
I’m sorry it took forever for me to get this up. There will be a part two. Hope you enjoy! Tell me if you do! :)
You insisted on putting the last touches of your makeup yourself, now finishing your look with the right shade of red.
“What do you think?” You asked turning to your boyfriend as you did a little spin to show off your dress.
“You look great. Always do.” He said barely looking up.
You crossed your arms and gave him an annoyed look.
“What?” He asked half annoyed, “You ask the same thing every time, and ever since you started "going out” with him it’s become routine.“
"Not going to wish me luck?"
"Luck on what? It’s another date with him isn’t it?”
“It’s a premier. I’m kind of nervous actually. It’s my first one”
“I’m sure you’ll do fine. You’ve gone through this kind of thing before."
You rolled your eyes, "Whatever. I’ll see you tomorrow.” You said waving him off
It had been the routine for the last 6 months. You had become a rising star within the last two year; a star that came to the level of popularity that your agent had decided that it’d be good for you if you were to have a “fake boyfriend.” But never in your wildest dreams did you think that this fake boyfriend would be Harry Styles.
—7 months ago—
“What on earth would he get out of "dating” me?“
"Well,” your agent started, “He’s obviously very famous and popular around the world, and you need the publicity. You're this close,” he said giving a hand gesture that showed the small distance he was referring to, “This close to being the next huge thing. If you do this with Harry, it will prolong your career."
You sighed, "Again, that wasn’t my question. What does Harry get out of it? I’m not that famous. What benefit does he get?”
Your agent frowned, “I thought you liked him. I thought you’d be thrilled to "go out” with him.“
"I am! He’s great, he’s cute. But more importantly he’s a genuine guy. I have met him before. I just want to know why. I don’t want to completely take advantage of him."
He heaved a deep sigh, "You attract a certain audience and style and it’s something that his agent seems to like as well to broaden his own audience like he will for you.”
You were able to breathe a little easier, now knowing more about this seemingly odd situation. Even if it was something that’s been done since the very beginning of Hollywood and the fame industry.
“Alright. I’ll agree to it if he agrees to it. But you know, we have to talk to [Y/BF/N] about this. I don’t know how he’ll react to something like this.” And you started to feel anxious at the thought.
“Don’t worry. I’ll talk to him about it.” Your agent said, “Also we’ll have to meet with Harry and his agent to discuss the ground rules. You said you’ve met him before right?”
You nodded, “At a party about 2 months ago."
"Good. I’ll call you when we’ll be meeting with him. It’s also when we’ll discuss how we’ll bring you two into the public eye.”
“Whoa. Hold on, shouldn’t we wait until he agrees to being my "boyfriend”?“
He gave a look, "Wait I didn’t mention it? He already has."
"What? Oh. Well alright.”
Everything had be sorted out beforehand, and you and Harry had met to see what you would both agree upon. The terms for the relationship were both simple and basic.
No spontaneous PDA
And no spontaneous trips away.
Everything had to have been planned and known beforehand.
You didn’t have a doubt in your mind. The rules were too easy. You both were already taken. This was simply work.
The first few times a month after the idea and rules were laid out, you had both made it look easy. But it wasn’t quite the “young love” that people thought it would be.
But your agents and the managing teams had an idea to make the relationship seem more believable.
So this time the scene was set- a table near a window of a very public restaurant. The lighting was very dim just enough to enhance the candlelight that was at every table, but the focus on you and Harry was very clear.
The place wasn’t busy… yet; but with the whispers of people nearby, including the staff, you knew that the plan was working and that by the time you were to both walk out, the paparazzi would be everywhere.
Just as planned. You thought.
