I decided to try something new and for each month make a list of the fics i’ve read. This will be my first one, so if theres anything specific you’d like to see with these monthly recs, just let me know!!
Favorite of the Month:
Just A Feeling (whoknows, 44k)
The first time that Harry thinks about marriage in relation to Louis, he’s eighteen years old, standing in the middle of a crowded frat house, six drinks down and another in his hand.
It’s not the first time that he’s laid eyes on Louis. It’s not even the second time, or the third time, but Harry doesn’t believe in denying what his brain is trying to tell him, and his brain has been telling him that Louis might be the prettiest person in the world ever since that first fateful meeting, when Harry hadn’t been able to stop looking and Louis had ‘accidentally’ spilled his tea all over Harry’s lap in retaliation.
***make sure you read part 1 of this fic (which is just as good) here
Always One Foot On The Ground (lissomely, 47k)
The Valentines Day themed AU where Liam and Zayn won’t leave Louis alone about his policy against dating, Louis enlists Harry on the fake boyfriends adventure of a lifetime, and Niall is not above bribing everyone with food to get what he wants.
Gods & Monsters (velvetoscar, 201k)
The instructions were simple: seduce and destroy Harry Styles. Not once did they discuss the option of Louis actually falling in love. So, naturally, that’s exactly what he did.
Butterfly Gun (eravain, 100k)
1940’s AU. Even after six years apart, they can’t forget their shared wartime childhood.
Eight Cakes and Two Eulogies (Make A Happy Marriage) (yesllliam, 120k)
The Honourable Louis Tomlinson, heir to the Earldom of Colbury and the multi-billion pound family business, RLA Enterprises, often feels under pressure to conform to the expectations of those around him. The 30 year old, nerdy and rather homely physicist part of himself feels he ought to be getting married and carrying on the family line – as does his formidable Grandmother. The only problem is, after his last disastrous relationship, seven years ago, he has little desire to get intimate with another woman, let alone marry one. Of course, Harry, his famous actor of a best friend, always likes to pip in that he is free to marry him and while Louis loves him to pieces, the joke is getting a bit old now.
We’re Only Stones Around The Sun (anonymous, 46k)
Harry finds that he can’t ignore his feelings for his best friend when the months start ticking down to Louis’s graduation.
Space Oddity (velvetoscar, 14k)
Louis’ blessed with the inconvenience of getting his neighbor’s mail. It works out really well for the both of them.
You’ll Be Mine and I’ll Be Yours (Everything Has Changed) (godgavemelou, 6k)
AU set in the backwoods of Tennessee where Louis can’t seem to find a pair of shoes and Harry is new to town.
Leave It To The Breeze (hattalove, 81k)
A great british bake off au in which louis cares about winning and winning only, harry is made of sunshine and rainbow sprinkles, and niall sticks his nose into other people’s business. also featuring liam as louis’s best friend-slash-concerned mother, and zayn as a macaron connoisseur.
Do You Realize (anonymous, 20k)
Harry really didn’t expect to be swept up in snowflakes and eyelashes and coy smiles when he’d agreed to go on a skiing holiday with his lads. Nor was he expecting to cherish the sound of someone’s voice over his own thoughts, marveling about the way it crackled against the burning embers in the fireplace. And he really, really wasn’t expecting for his peaceful life to be turned on its head, all because of a bloody snowboard.
But, then again, he also never expected that he could fall in love in less than two weeks, so. So maybe life isn’t what Harry expected.
3B Neighbour (anonymous, 10k)
A mysterious neighbour keeps slipping the worst sort of notes under Harry’s door.
L.A. LOVE (Movin’ My Hips Like Yeah) (anonymous, 19k)
The one where Louis wins a trip to LA and Harry is his very distracting tour-guide.
Can I Not Like You For A While? (larryshares, 43k)
Louis Tomlinson is awful. Harry is just as difficult, and they’re both terrible to each other. It makes being in the same acapella group together quite complicated.
All You Need Is (Puppy) Love (anonymous, 6k)
The terribly fluffy story where they’re not in One Direction but they’re still madly in love and Louis is desperate to prove to Harry that they’re ready for a puppy.
