niall and his mate

I know we always talk about how the boys protect Niall and how much they love him but I feel like we really underestimate the love and support Niall gives to his band mates; to his brother.

Niall is always the one who hugs them when they cry, who comforts them and more importantly he’s the one who stands up for them when anything makes them uncomfortable.

He hugged Harry so hard when he cried in that one interview when he had felt so uncomfortable by the question the interviewer was making. He made sure Harry was alright when he got sick. He made sure to hug Harry hard when they got third place on the X-Factor and he’s done so so much more.

He always make sure to cheer Louis up when he’s mad or uncomfortable. He’s silly and happy around him to make sure Louis stays silly and happy. He laughed so hard when Louis’ voice cracked in that one concert during Moments but then made sure Louis wasn’t upset. He looks up to him so much and he’s always there for him,too.

With Liam he’s always been so soft and gentle. He play fights and tumbles with him all the time but he’s so gentle and careful whenever Liam is upset. The concert right after March 25th Liam had been visibly upset and crying and Niall had walked right over and hugged him from behind until he was sure Liam was okay. When Liam was insecure about anything Niall would make sure he gained his confidence and made sure to have everyone pay attention to Liam so that he wouldn’t feel left out.

When it came to Zayn, their relationship was one of mutual protection. They always made sure the other was fine and happy and smiling and if they weren’t they would take it upon themselves to change that. Niall was the one person that made sure to get Zayn heard. He made sure everyone around them knew he was there and that he shouldn’t be left out. There was one time in the Italy Midnight Memories interview where they’d asked what they loved as kids and Zayn was shy to admit that he had loved the Power Rangers as a kid and I remember him telling Niall as much and Niall making sure that the person interviewing them would pay enough attention to Zayn so that he could say his piece.

He’s the same with every single one of them. He loves them so much and he’s always there to bring comfort to his boys; every single one of them and I think that’s so important.

Niall Horan: *has nothing but good things to say about his band mates and his band and the future of said band*

Haters: *complain about every single word and syllable he says because it doesn’t fit their own narrative*

[Me: “Get a life.”]

Rain

Harry hated being woken up. He felt like there was no need to wake him up unless it was on his terms, which was rare. Says that he’ll decide on his own when he’ll wake up, and if he never does than that’ll be the end of it. That’s just how he felt.

So, when the pounding at the door woke him from his constant turning and grunting from his bed (since he couldn’t get a proper sleep from the thunder booming through the city) he wasn’t very happy.

✒️My Narry Fic List 📜

Aka: Every Narry Fic I’ve Ever Written; Ever

Basically, this is an official masterpost of every Narry story I’ve ever written! And I will try and update it whenever I can/whenever I remember. I’ve been asked a few times now for a link to all the fics I’ve written and, while I do plan on making a page for them, I quite like the masterpost-thing because everything is organized and they’re all in one place. So here goes:

X

One-Shots:

The CountdownLike the timer on the inside of his wrist, Harry has been counting down the days-hours-minutes-seconds until he meets his soul mate. But then Harry meets Niall. (7,136)

Once an AddictNiall’s an alcoholic. Harry’s into drugs. (20,700)

Home is Where the Heart is (And My Heart is With You)Harry has always been with Niall, has always gone where Niall’s gone. So flying across the pond and drifting across the USA with Niall really isn’t all that different. Until it is. (13,243)

Half a HeartHarry’s spent the majority of his life searching for his soulmate; the other half of his rose gold heart. When he’s 19, he stops – stops hoping and wishing and searching – because maybe his mother is wrong. And then he meets a boy – bright blond hair, beautiful blue eyes, brilliant smile – and it feels like he’s known this boy, this stranger, his whole life. (6,466)

Of Demons and AngelsHarry is one of the greatest Shadowhunters of his time. And Niall is just a boy whose life gets turned upside down by demons and angels. This is not only a story of Niall’s search for the truth about who – or what – he is; it’s also one of loyalty and love. (40,626)

Red and the Big Bad WolfNiall finds himself alone and a bit freaked out when he runs into the big bad wolf. Not everything, however, is as it seems.

Happy Birthday, From AfarThis is because I miss Narry and I’m pretty sure Harry misses Niall even though it looked like he had a ton of fun.

Oh, BabiesNiall and Harry want to have a baby. Aka, The Evolution of Annabelle and Parker. Loosely tied this fic called Future for those who wanted some background information on how Niall and Harry got Parker and Annabelle, which is where the twins made their debut.

Late Late, Narry -  This is a drabble thingy I wrote after The Late Late Show involving a sick!Harry, a slightly tipsy!Niall with a mention of those teeny tiny red shorts Harry wore.

Wrong Anniversary (or Not) - Harry and Niall fight about when their anniversary should be.

People Fall in Love in Mysterious WaysThe plan is fly to Dublin and be engaged by the end of the weekend. It’s not supposed to include a slight detour, a series of delays and a beautiful but brazen Irishman who changes, well, everything. Inspired by the movie Leap Year.

A birthday thing - Niall’s a bit drunk, Harry’s a bit of an idiot and, well, everything works out in the end anyway.

Puppy Love - Niall has a dog. Niall and Harry have a past.

Last First Kiss -

“I mean, unless you’re afraid of kissing.”

Niall narrows his gaze. “I’m not afraid of kissing.”

“You’re afraid of kissing strangers, then.”

“I’m not a fan of kissing strangers.”

Harry smirks, sticking out his right hand for Niall to take – and Niall can’t help but notice how big they are, his hands. “Harry Styles. Born in Cheshire, moved to London for school a few years ago and didn’t have the heart to leave. And now we’re not complete strangers, so what do you say?”

Niall looks from a hopeful, wide-eyed Louis to a somewhat smug, charming and definitely cheeky Harry Styles. He sighs. “Fine.”

the only truth -

Sometimes it’s heavy, and powerful, and emotional; memories that take his breath away, and make his heart race with desire. Memories of stolen cookies, and staying up all night because they had so much to say; of growing up too fast because families can be messy, and running away overnight just to get away, and lying on rooftops to be closer to the stars; of first crushes, and puppy love – and real love, and first kisses, and slow dances, and whispered promises, and…last kisses.

Other times it’s just the simple things. Easy things; hard things. Things like smiles, and laughter; things like shadows, and similarities in other real people; things like old band t-shirts he’d forgotten that he’d stolen, and boots found in the back of his closet, and a scarf he didn’t even know he’d had; things like his imagination running wild with the scent of a cologne he hasn’t smelled in ages.

This Town UPDATE! 

When Everything Comes Crashing Down UPDATE!

Niall groans, kicks the sheets off of his legs before pushing himself to feet and stalking towards his bedroom window. He opens the curtain, sighs when he sees Harry crouched on the other side of the window pane- But he opens the window anyway. “How many times have I told you not to climb up here?” Niall hisses. He curls a hand around Harry’s bicep and pulls him inside. “You’re gonna get hurt again. And since you’ve already sprained your ankle, you’re running the risk of re-breaking the bone and-”

He stops when he notices Harry’s ruddy cheeks and wet eyes. “What’s wrong?” he asks softly, a lump in his throat.

Harry opens his mouth to speak, but nothing comes out.

“Harry,” Niall says. This time his voice sounds just as panicked, and he feels it. “Haz, what’s wrong?”

“Z-Zayn,” he stutters, pausing to clear his throat.

Niall blinks. “What about him?”

Harry stares at him; looks lost and confused.

“Harry, you’re scaring me. What-”

“He was in an accident.”

Note: This is a WIP.

“What do you mean they don’t know about me?”

Niall watches Harry shift, watches him loosen and then tighten his hand on the steering wheel, watches him bite at the inside of his cheek. He narrows his gaze when the brunette doesn’t answer, reaches forward to mute whatever pop song is playing on the radio. “Harry.”

“I mean- They know about you, they just don’t…know about you,” Harry corrects, offering Niall an awkward smile. His grip tightens, again, on the steering wheel.

“Forgive me if I don’t know what the difference is,” Niall deadpans. “What exactly did you tell them, Haz?”

Harry hesitates – and Niall can see the movement in his jaw, that Harry’s biting his cheek. A nervous tick.

“I swear, Harry-”

“That you were my friend.”

Niall blinks. “Friend?”

Harry sighs. “I-”

“I wasn’t aware you let your friends suck you off in gas station loos on the way to meet your parents for the first time. Did Nick get to do it too?”

Niall Horan Imagine ☆

☆Requested:Yes

☆Song:Lovebug by The Jonas Brothers

☆Warning:None 

Rory couldn’t wrap his mind around what he had just seen, he was ware that Niall had the tiniest of feelings for his sister, he just never thought he had to worry about him romancing his sister. Groaning as Niall walked into the room rather flushed he narrowed his eyes at his best mate. 

“Sit.” 

Niall was quick to plant a seat across from Rory. He was absolutely shitting himself at the moment. He knew how much Y/N meant to Rory and he hoped he could make him understand how much she meant to him. 

“I ain’t gonna’ tell ya’ you can’t date her…” Rory started off as he saw Niall relax a bit. “But I am gonna’ give ye’ the talk.” He smirked as Niall’s eyes went wide. 

“No mate, we-we haven’t don anythin’…” He started to rambled off as Rory narrowed his eyes at the boy before him. He knew he had little to worry about. Niall would be a perfect boyfriend to his sister, but he couldn’t help but be worried. This was his baby sister we were talking about anyways. 

“Listen mate. I ain’t gonna sit here and say no sex. Hell we all know that won’t happen..” He chuckled as Niall’s pale cheeks turned an unhealthy shade of red. “But I’m asking that ya’ don’t shag me sister with me in the same house. Also please protection mate…” He added as Niall quickly nodded his head. 

“I really like her…”He mumbled as Rory nodded his head. He knew there was very little to say to Niall. He knew better than anyone how long Niall has waited for his ‘princess’ to come. 

“Are ya serious about this?” He asked as Niall leaned back in his seat looking for the right words to voice his feelings. “Cause ye’ aren’t spare her the heartbreak..” 

“I’m serious..” Niall stated as a soft smile came onto his face. “Gonna make her me wife..” He breathed as he looked back at his girlfriends older brother hoping he had gained his approval. 

Rory couldn’t keep the smile off his face as he heard those words escape his lips. Standing up from his seat he patted Niall on the shoulder as she came down the stairs phone in hand. Smiling at the boys, she looked up as Niall stood up and held her to him blowing raspberries onto her neck as her to giggle and Rory to smile in happiness. 

There’s No Place Like Home.

It was Saturday and Niall had spent most of the day golfing with some of his mates, leaving you to lounge by the pool and sip on mimosas. When he got home that afternoon, he was hot, tired, and hungry. Niall walked outside, sandwich in hand and sauntered over to you.  

“Hey, handsome! How was golf?” you hollered as you pulled your sunglasses down to watch him move. Damn! He always looks so sexy in his golf pants! His ass was perfection and all you wanted to do was bite it!

“Had a decent game. Not my best.” he held out his sandwich to offer you a bite and you shook your head.

Broken Promises

When Niall wakes up, he’s greeted with a cold bed and a buzzing phone. 

He groans loudly as he rolls over, trying to curl back into the warmth of the comforter, but there’s no escaping the loud, incessant buzzing coming from his nightstand. Throwing the covers off with a pout already on his face, Niall grabs the phone and presses ‘accept,’ not bothering to check the caller id beforehand. 

“What.” He grunts, sleepily rubbing at his half-shut eyes. 

There’s a familiar, dark chuckle that resonates through the receiver before a low voice crackles, “Happy birthday?” and Niall’s eyes shoot open. 

“Zayn?” He asks gleefully. He hadn’t heard from his former band member since the release of PILLOWTALK and was extremely excited to finally get comedown time to talk to his friend. “Hey, mate!” Niall coos happily, siting up and running a hand through his hair. 

The two have a nice chat for a good while, simply catching up on their lives: Zayn’s suddenly busy and Niall’s suddenly calm. “Anyway, I guess I’ll just see you tonight, yeah?” The older boy confirms and Niall hums in agreement. “Tell Harry I said hey, yeah? See ya, Nialler!” Zayn remarks before ending the call abruptly.

Niall lets out a long sigh, shaking his head as if it would rid Zayn’s last comment from his mind. 

Not that it was Zayn’s fault that he thought Harry was with Niall. After all, they usually were always together. But… once the break had begun, Harry started to drift. It wasn’t anything major at first, just going off to L.A. on his own while Niall went home to Ireland. Then he started to leave even when Niall was in London at their house. He’d go off to Malibu or Miami to see Cara or Nick or one of his other countlessly famous friends, leaving Niall alone for days on end.

And really, Niall didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. He was his own person and he had his own friends. But he had’t heard from Harry in 2 days now and it was his birthday. Wasn’t Harry always the first one who’d text Niall on his birthday? Wasn’t Harry the one who’d stay up till midnight just to make sure he could leave Niall his first ‘Happy Birthday’ message, even if they were sleeping in the same bed? 

Harry was that person, but this year seemed to be different. 

It was 12pm at this point, and Niall had a plethora of messages from family, mates, and other random people, as well as several million happy birthday messages from fans, but not a single one came from Harry. 

In fact, the only reason Niall even knew where Harry was was thanks to (god forbid) People Magazine. Apparently Harry was off galavanting in America with some guys from an indie band Niall had never even heard of before. 

Niall didn’t care. He didn’t. 

He tries to convince himself of this for the rest of the day, but the amount of times he checks his phone, turning it off and back on, restarting it to make sure his phone wasn’t just bugged or something– because why else wouldn’t he be receiving a text from Harry?

His party was tonight and Harry had promised, several times in fact, that he would be there. When he left a few days ago he had reassured Niall that he would show up because Niall had been so adamant about it.

Niall shuts his phone off before closing his eyes and exhaling heavily. Harry would be there. He had to be. 

* * * *

Niall gets ready by himself. 

He tries to keep himself calm as he gets dropped off at the bar, where the party has pretty much already started, telling himself again and again that Harry would make it. His plane was probably just late. His phone probably died. There had to be an excuse. 

He tries his best to have fun that night, Louis’ cheering him along as he downs shots with his closest friends and hundreds of random strangers. 

He also tries his best not to wince every time someone asks about Harry. He must be bad at hiding though because Louis, Liam, and Zayn keep sending him glances like they’re pitying him. He hates it. 

And he tells them so a few hours later as they drag his drunken ass out of the still drumming bar. “Stop lookin’ at me like ‘m all broken. We didn’t break up.” He slurs unhappily. 

The boys each stop their movements for a moment before Louis slides disbelieving eyes onto the blonde. The brunette sighs, hauling Niall into the car before following him. “Then why isn’t he here, Ni? Why doesn’t anyone know where he is?” The opposing blue eyed boys asks, surprisingly sober. 

Niall shrugs, murmuring, “He’ll show up. Jus’ wait.” He repeats the mantra he’d been telling himself since the day started. 

If the boys give him pitying looks after that, Niall wouldn’t know. He’s too busy passing out all over Liam. 

* * * *

The next day is awful.

Not only does Niall have one of the worst hangovers ever, but he’s alone. There’s a note on his fridge from Louis, Liam, and Zayn, explaining that they all went home after they woke up but that doesn’t help Niall’s loneliness. 

He’s not looking for Louis, Liam, or Zayn to be warming his bed. He’s looking for his boyfriend, who promised to show up for his birthday party. He’s looking for his boyfriend, who seemed to have completely forgotten that Niall had a birthday. 

There’s not a single text, not a single missed call, not even a tweet from Harry and Niall’s heart breaks a little. Birthday’s aren’t the most important thing ever, but Harry had never been the type of person to forget anything to do with Niall. In fact, Harry almost always remembered everything that had something to do with Niall. They were like that. Attached at the hip, always thinking of each other and never leaving the other behind. 

At least, that’s how things worked during tour. 

That’s how things worked when they were forced to be with one another.

And maybe that’s the scariest part for Niall. Niall knows how Harry feels. He knows that Harry thinks that Louis is too mean and sassy and how Liam is too judgmental and he knows that out of all of the boys, they are each others favorites. Maybe that’s what it was. Out of all of the guys, Niall was the most tolerable for Harry.

Plus, Harry had a good appreciation for Niall’s arse. 

So maybe the whole ‘boyfriend’ thing was just in Niall’s head. Maybe he and Harry were simply a convenient way for the brunette to display his affection and exert his.. sexual tension on. 

Niall sits up and holds back a whimper as his head pounds in repudiation. 

The rest of the day doesn’t turn out to be any better. 

Niall starts his day by going down to the couch and sitting with a nice cup of tea, hoping to rectify his terrible headache. He then goes to twitter and begins to reply to some fans birthday wishes when he sees it. Articles considering why Harry wasn’t at Niall’s party, magazines speculating that Harry and Niall were no longer friends or that Harry chose some random bird over his best mates birthday party. 

Niall wishes he could laugh it off like he usually does– send a picture of the article to his curly haired boyfriend and giggle along as Harry makes fun of it too. 

But this time it’s too real. It’s too possible. 

Harry forgot about him. 

Tears begin to gather in the blonde’s eyes as he starts to accept it. Harry, his loving, caring, and usually attentive boyfriend, forgot about him and his birthday, and didn’t even bother to call. Tears are streaming down his cheeks and the next thing he knows there are hard, ugly sobs leaving his chest as he holds onto a pillow, trying his hardest to conceal his harsh breaths but failing miserably. His nose is running and his eyes are red and puffy and his throat is already feeling the gravely side-affects of crying and Niall knows that this isn’t okay.

He’s been missing Harry too much.

This pain isn’t just from his boyfriend forgetting his birthday. He’s forgotten Niall altogether.

Of course, just as Niall’s tears begin streaming, Harry decides to call.

Niall doesn’t waste any time before jumping to answer the call. No matter how much Harry hurts him, Niall just can’t let go. He loves the curly haired boy. Niall loves him. 

He breathes deeply, attempting to clear his throat, and picking up before the phone can finish its first ring. “Hello?” He says into the phone and hears the beautiful, slow and soft voice he’s been yearning to hear for the past few days.

“Hey there Ni, you okay?” He asks casually, a light chuckle in his voice and Niall laughs a bit too, because what else can he do.

“Yeah, I’m good.” Niall lies, “I just… I’m excited to hear from you.” He says lightly, trying his best not to sound like he’s been crying. 

Harry laughs a bit more, not saying much else and Niall begins to feel a bit weird as awkwardness seeps into their conversation. “So um.. is there anything you want to say to me?” Niall encourages blatantly, as he realizes that Harry’s not going to notice Niall’s sadness as he usually does. 

Harry isn’t sounding concerned or worried as he usually does. 

There’s a small silence. “Of course, babe.” Harry murmurs, “I’m just a bit distracted, sorry.” He explains and Niall’s beginning to feel himself get annoyed. 

Mostly to save himself from saying anything he’d regret later, Niall stays silent.

Harry sighs. “So, like, how mad would you be if I had to be gone for a few more days?” He inquires, apparently not even aware that he had missed the entire reason Niall wanted him to come home in the first place. 

“What?” Niall grits, unable to understand how Harry had been able to forget his boyfriend’s birthday and continue to leave that same boyfriend behind in the house they had bought together, planning to spend as much time in it together as possible. 

Harry lets out another loud, disappointed sounding sigh. “I just.. the guys want to hit up New York for a few days before heading back home and I already promised I’d go with them. Ya know, I don’t wanna bail on them or anything…” He says like he’s trying to convince Niall as if the blonde is his mother or something. 

The blonde shakes his head disbelievingly, even though his boyfriend can’t see him, completely unaware of who “the guys” are. Niall chuckles, cold and bitter, nothing like Harry is used to, “You don’t want to break your promises? That’s a surprise.” He says vehemently, malice clear in his voice and Harry is stunned into silence. “Do whatever you want, Harry, but don’t expect me to wait for you, cause’ I’m tired of doin’ that.” Niall spits, hanging up before the brunette can even get another word in. 

Niall throws the phone away from him, leaving it alone as it lands on the floor. He quickly jogs up the stairs and grabs a few different outfits and shoves them into a bag, grabbing his pillow and a few other necessities before making his way quickly out the door, ignoring the endless buzzing that was coming from the living room. 

* * * *

Harry knows he’s fucked up the second Niall hangs up.

Niall hardly ever snaps at anyone let alone Harry and he never hangs up. There’s always a long, hard goodbye from both sides when they eventually have to end their phone calls. But Harry could hear the harsh anger that Niall was feeling through the phone. Harry didn’t know exactly what he did, but he knew he fucked up.

He’s standing in the front room, away from the boys that he left behind in the other room, trying to get Niall to pick the phone back up. He’s been trying for a good half hour before Matthew, one of the guys he had been hanging out with recently, comes to get him. “Look dude, I was thinking we could leave the 15th and then you’d be home before the 23rd, or whatever day you need to get home by, yeah?” He asks good naturally but Harry shakes his head. 

“No, mate, I think I gotta go– wait. What did you just say?” Harry sputters, hoping to god that he just heard that wrong. 

Matthew gives him a puzzled look. “I was thinking we could leave the 15th?”

Harry runs a hand through his hair, pulling out his phone as quickly as he could, clicking the home button and instantly dropping it the second the date came into view. 

September 14

“Shit.” Harry says minutely, ignoring the confused look on Matthews face. “Shit!” The curly haired boy says louder, bending to pick up his phone and grabbing his keys swiftly. 

“I have to get back home, tell the guys I said bye.” He mutters, jogging out of the house and getting into his car, ringing up Paul to see to fastest way to get back to London. 

* * * *

At 3:23am the next day, Harry finally arrives at his and Niall’s shared house. 

After a 10 hour and 35 minute flight, Harry should be exhausted and ready to sleep till the weekend, but at this point he couldn’t feel more nervous. 

He was jumpy, as if he’d had too much sugar or coffee, even though the only thing he had all day was a bottle of water and a few crackers. His hands were shaking as he unlocked the door, revealing their beautiful-as-usual home in its normal condition. It was mostly clean, save for a few prices of clothing and empty mugs strewn across the kitchen counter. There’s a crumpled piece of paper and other bits of rubbish scattered on the floor and Harry picks them up and tosses them away dutifully– mostly just to waste time and calm his nerves as much as he possibly could. 

He sighs, trying his best to stay quiet because he knew Niall was a light sleeper. There’s little he can do now, except hope and pray that Niall will find it in himself to forgive Harry

But Harry had a bad feeling about it all

“You don’t want to break your promises? That’s a surprise.”

Harry suppressed an embarrassed, guilty groan of disappointment in himself. Niall had reminded him over and over again about his birthday party. As Harry was leaving for L.A. and in nearly every phone call afterward, Niall would end their calls by making sure Harry still had it down to come home beforehand and spend time together. Harry brushed over it, confident in himself to get everything together before Niall’s birthday and come home a couple of days before, just after he finished up seeing a few friends in America. 

But, completely unlike Harry, he forgot. 

Things got busy in L.A. and Harry just got caught up. He double booked flights and hotels and was overall just a mess. And apparently somewhere in that mess, he forgot about his own boyfriend’s birthday. 

Harry shakes his head and begins climbing the stairs, slowly, wincing at every creak the wood makes. He enters through the large door of their bedroom, not able to force himself to turn on the light. “Ni…?” He whispers lowly, standing back to allow his eyes to adjust to the darkness of the room. 

That’s when he realizes. 

With a quick ‘click’ of the lights, Harry lets out a panicked gasp. The bed is perfectly made and untouched. The drawers are pulled out randomly and the closet is an absolute mess. Harry quickly makes his way through the room, pulling at all of the doors in hopes that by some weird phenomenon, Niall may be behind them. “Niall?” He asks, louder, like the change in his voice would convince the blonde to stop messing around and just come out of hiding. 

The bathroom is just as messy, and Niall’s green, light-up toothbrush is gone. Harry’s heart begins to pound wildly against his chest. 

“Niall!” He says, loudly in a complete yell that would surely wake any neighbors if they had them. 

In a last ditch effort, trying to convince himself that everything was okay and Niall was just messing around with him, he checks under the bed. 

That’s where he collapses, in a heap of tears and gasping sobs. 

Niall’s suitcase is gone. 

* * * * 

Niall doesn’t know why he thought going to Zayn’s would be a good idea. Sure, the darker skinned boy accepted him in welcoming arms but really, Zayn was too truthful. 

He, of course, told Niall that he was right in being upset with Harry, but the truth of the matter was, Harry didn’t mess up that much. And for the doofus that the curly haired boy is, that’s pretty surprising. Niall doesn’t want to forgive Harry so quickly though. Harry treated him like shit for the past month and that wasn’t acceptable. He told Zayn this, but the silver haired boy shakes his head and rolled his eyes. 

“You guys are going to end up back together anyways, so what’s the big deal about forgiving him now versus later?” He asks, amber eyes flickering with playfulness as he knows he’s right. 

Niall throws a pillow at his beautiful face, telling him to kindly ‘fuck off’ and leave him alone. 

When he turns on his phone a few hours later, his heart chips a bit, as he sees:

Missed Calls: Hazzy <3 (37)

Message: Hazzy <3 (21)

Niall sighs, closing his eyes and leaning against the comfortable couch, feeling conflicted. 

Of course he wanted to forgive Harry. All he wanted to do was run back into Harry’s arms just so they could be okay again but the last thing he wanted was to give Harry the impression that he could fuck up his and Niall’s relationship regularly, and that Niall would still forgive him.

Niall was known for being “too nice,” and “too forgiving,” and it’s not nearly as good of a trait as some may think. It’s not a positive thing to be seen as the boy who can’t stand up for himself. 

So Niall turns his phone back off, unable to deal with the temptation of calling Harry and fixing everything back to normal.

Instead, he just goes to sleep on Zayn’s couch, hoping for the next day to be better.

* * * *

The blonde boy wakes up to Zayn shaking his shoulder violently, calling, “Get up, idiot, you’ve got a visitor.” 

Niall glares at the darker-haired boy’s back as he retreats back into his bedroom and shoves a hand through his unwashed hair. He rubs at his eyes sleepily before getting off the couch, and walking towards the door. 

He opens it and allows his eyes to nearly pop out of his head before he slams the door right back to where it was. 

Niall hears a surprised shout and lets out one of his own, pushing down the cuffed legs of his joggers and fixing his winked shirt. He presses his hair down a bit more, in hopes that it will at least look a bit decent before re-opening the door, doing his best to act nonchalant. “Hi.” He says lowly. “Sorry.” 

Harry looks back at him earnestly, a heartbroken look on his face as Niall looks down at the ground, more specifically: away from Harry. “Ni…” He whispers sadly, “I am so, so very sorry.” He begins, stepping closer through the threshold so theres no chance of Niall slamming the door on his face once more. 

“I know there’s nothing I can say to fix what I did but I… I’ll apologize to you for every day for the rest of our lives, Ni, I’m so sorry.” He repeats, not sure how he could ever fix what he did. “I swear I didn’t forget about you… I just, I was trying so hard to appease everyone and see all of my friends cause’ I knew I’d be spending all of my break with you, and I just.. I lost track of the days.” He rambles, reaching forward slowly, like Niall was some skittish animal that would clinch at any touch before placing a soothing hand on the paler boy’s arm. “I love you so much, baby, and I would never intentionally hurt you.” He grovels, looking every bit of ashamed that he was. Ashamed of begin a bad boyfriend and hurting Niall, ashamed of everything. 

Niall’s eyes have been stuck on Harry since the beginning of his spiel, watching upsettingly as he gives in more and more before he’s basically just a liquid puddle of Niall in Harry’s hands, so absolutely fond of this boy he can’t even stand for himself. 

He shrugs. “It’s alright, Haz, I just… I don’t know. It upset me is all.” He says lowly and Harry’s eyes tighten. 

“it’s not okay. It’ll never happen again, Ni, I swear to you. We can celebrate your birthday everyday from now on if you want. I wouldn’t mind.” He tries, stepping closer to Niall and allowing a soft smile as Niall allows himself to be held closer. “I’ll do anything Niall,” He trails off, and Niall can see how much guilt and sorrow the curly haired boy feels, “Just please… don’t leave me like this again. Don’t pack your bags and leave me. I can’t tell you how terrifying it was to come home and see most of your stuff gone without a single trace of you. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever been through, baby, I don’t think my heart could handle it again. Don’t leave.” He whispers brokenly and Niall surges forward, hugging his boyfriend with all of his might. 

“I love you, okay? It’s alright.” Niall reassures, digging his blunt fingernails into Harry’s shoulder blades. 

“I love you too, so much.” Harry returns, holding the blonde just as tightly. “I promise I’ll make it up to you, okay? Every second of your birthday, I’ll make it up.” He says confidently, wiping his eyes and looking down at Niall affectionately. 

Niall rolls his eyes. “I really don’t care, Haz, It’s okay.” 

“Hush.” Harry orders. “It’s your birthday, right? We have to get your presents.” He says, cheeky grin already on his face as he looks around the quiet apartment suspiciously. “Starting with your 23 Birthday kisses.” 

:) :) Idk how i felt about that but :)

DOMESTIC MONSTERS SERIES

Harry is a witch from a long line of power, an ancient line that’s one of the strongest left alive in their hemisphere. He can cast spells without a word if need be, fly on a broomstick, and has a black cat (a kitten, really) named Felix that is his animal familiar. He can shape galaxies in his cupped hands and can destroy them just as easily. He can choose exactly how to use his power, for encouragement and support, or for more nefarious causes if he wishes to.

And as fate would have it, he’s scared of haunted houses.

(Harry is a witch who carries around a stuffed pumpkin, Louis is a vampire with too much time on his hands, and their best mates Zayn & Niall aren’t exactly what they seem…)

Review - 10 out of 10 Larry Thumbs!!!!

Updated Sept 27, 2016 for addition of eighth fic

I can’t possibly say enough about this series’ CHARM and HUMOR and LOVELINESS. The writing is colorful and descriptive in an immersive and sparkly way. Honestly, everything about the fics in this series sparkles. It’s a shimmery set of stories that make you laugh out loud, sometimes cry, and always wish you were a part of the fun.

This is fic-with-a-soul. You’d think a story about a sweet earth-centered witch and a pleasant vamp would lack substance, but you’d be wrong. Sure, there are cutesy scenes all over the place (so much glitter, yay!), but the characters are rich with depth and intrigue. It only continues to get better - with every new fic, layers are added to each character that help us better understand their history and personalities. 

This series is just beautiful - it takes my breath away. I’ve laughed and cried so much over the course of the eight fics, and I never want it to end. I feel like each and every character is my best friend. 

Read this, read this, READ THIS.

OMG i had a full conversation last week with friends about niall's friends (excluding bressie & Eoghan) and i said Sean is my favorite friend of niall's, He just seems the most genuine, lives his life and Niall is his mate. Id be most attracted to that. Although, Greg Sadlier is probably the most mentally attractive to me because he works aspects of space and is probably a major geek like me. A cool geek.

he’s my fave friend too. and out of all nialls friends, he’d be the only one i’d ever go for hahaa

Try Refusing A Million Times (But You’re In Love) by habitbynight

A ‘To Be’ is when a witch has found someone who they could spend a lifetime with, who they could love and treasure forever. If the ‘To Be’ loves the witch, all side effects of having a ‘To Be’ will vanish, and the two will be at peace. If it is not requited, however, the witch will suffer until they find a way to cast one of the dark rituals on themselves and free them of their torture. That, or they must find a way to make their ‘To Be’ love them; which is a extremely difficult task.

-

Harry’s just a normal witch selling tea and sweets in The Umbrella, a shop he and his best mate Niall have just opened. But on ‘Official Opening Day’ he runs into Louis, and there the chaos ensues when Harry’s magic trickles into Louis. With Niall and Zayn at his side, it’s a regular quest for love: either Harry gets his magic back from the forbidden Louis whose dating Liam, or he preforms a dark ritual on himself to save himself from Louis’ madness that he most certainly will not survive.

Summary:

There are only two ways to navigate Bloomfield High School: become popular or make yourself invisible.

With the help of his best mate Niall, Harry’s introduction to high school hadn’t been half bad. Despite being a “bandie” – the lowest of the low in the ancient hierarchy of high school –Harry had somehow managed to survive freshman year relatively unscathed.
So naturally, Harry would have been perfectly happy to resume his position of invisible trombone player number four for the remainder of high school. But one day something drastic happened, something that would change the course of Harry’s entire existence (probably).

It was the last football game of his freshman year, and the band was back in the stands after performing a rousing rendition of Bloomfield’s alma mater during half time. Harry was gracelessly wiping the slobber from the mouthpiece of his trombone when he saw him.

Louis Tomlinson.

Or…a High School AU where Harry is a bandie and Louis is the epitome of cool, so naturally, Harry must find a way to get his attention and win his affections.

Preference #132: Your relationship is a secret but one of the boys finds out through the phone

Requested (by a very sweet girl): Could you do a preference where they’re dating but he doesn’t tell the other boys but they maybe look through his texts or overhear a cute phone call with (y/n) and they find out about their relationship.


Harry:

“I miss you too sweetie” Harry told you through the phone. You couldn’t help but laugh. “What?” He wondered. “It just that we just saw each other two days ago and we already miss each other.” you explained. “Oh” Harry laughed.  "We must be in that clingy stage" you giggled. “Maybe, but I kind of love it” he admitted. It had been six months since your neighbor Niall had introduced you to his band mate Harry. As you two got to know each other a bit better, you started to fall for each other rather quickly. It wasn’t until one day when the three of you were having a movie night that Niall had left the room, when Harry asked if he could kiss you, and you of course, though flustered, said yes. The kiss was all the confirmation you needed; and from that day on, you and Harry decided it’d be best kept a secret from Niall. That way he’d never feel like a third wheel or as if he was in the middle. “(Y/N)?” Harry started. “Hmm?” “I think I love you” you heard Harry admit. “Harry I love you t-” you were interrupted by a joy-filled Niall, walking in through your unlocked apartment door, as he did almost everyday. It was normal for Niall just to walk in, you were close friends who acted more as room mates rather than neighbors, but in this instance you’d wished he’d knocked. He looked as if he was going to say something but stopped himself as he must have overheard your words.“Um… Harry I need to call you back, Niall just walked in but…um about what you said… I feel the same way.” You say, hoping Niall wouldn’t put all the pieces together. “Wait wait wait Harry! Like my Harry? Harry Styles?!” he exclaimed. “Oh god. You sighed. ”(Y/N) give me the phone!!“ He almost screamed. Luckily for him, Harry hadn’t hung up yet. "HARRY! ARE YOU AND (Y/N) IN LOVE?” he wondered excitedly. “No Harry, I’m not giving her back the phone. Answer my question?!” Eventually Harry must have finally cracked because Niall got the brightest smile on his face. “I’m so happy for you!!! I hoped this would happen!!” he cheered, causing you to blush. “Alright Niall, calm down, weirdo” you laughed. “Harry come over right now! We have to celebrate!” Niall told him. You couldn’t help at your friend, but honestly, you loved knowing how supportive he was.

Niall:

When Niall said he wanted to keep the relationship a secret, you thought he meant from the press and the fans, not from everyone; including Liam, Louis, and Harry. Considering that his three bandmates were practically with him twenty four-seven, it was pretty hard to keep quiet. You were pretty sure Niall had your number saved in his phone under the name “Jim” or something silly like that so that no one would be alarmed when seeing Niall get a text from you. Though this plan seemed like a good plan at first, it ultimately led to the outing of your relationship…

It was an average day, Niall had been at the studio for five hours, which felt like 30. You quickly sent him a harmless text ‘Come home soon, and bring dinner if you can babe’ it read. You weren’t expecting him to call you ten minutes later. “Hello?” you answered. “It is a girl!” you heard a voice say, it was familiar, but it maintained an English accent rather than the sweet Irish one you’d grown used to. “Um, yes. May I ask who this is?” you questioned. “Hang Up– D-on’t - Don’t Talk to him!” You heard Niall say, he sounded as if he was struggling to even speak. “Oh my God what’s going on, Niall are you okay babe?” you asked, more concerned than ever. It was a harmless question in your eyes, but to Louis, it was just the confirmation that he needed; that this “Jim” Niall was always talking too was not an old friend of his, but a girl, and not just any girl, his “babe.” Let’s just say this was a big deal for Louis. It all made sense to you now. Louis must have seen the text on Niall’s phone and gotten suspicious of why “Jim” would be telling Niall to bring home dinner. That must have been why he called, Niall then noticing this, tried his best to grab the phone back from Louis, but he wasn’t fast enough to catch up to Louis, which explained why he sounded as if he was struggling. Once you finally understood what happened, the guilt was quick to set in. You should have just done exactly what Niall had told you do, but now Louis knew, and you were sure Harry and Liam would soon find out as well. “So what’s your real name ‘Jim’?” Louis wanted to know. “Can I please just talk to Niall, I don’t wanna say anything else, I’ve screwed up enough” you sighed. It was almost as if you could hear Louis frown through the phone. “It’s okay sweetheart, you didn’t screw anything up, he had to find out sometime” you heard Niall say. He sounded closer to the phone now, Louis must had stopped running from him. You breathed out a huge sigh of relief. “My name is (Y/N)” you said, a tiny bit of caution still in your voice. “Well, I’m Louis. This will be one hell of a first meeting story huh, (Y/N)?” Louis laughed. “Yeah no kidding.” you teased.

Liam:

“Yeah I know, and then she-” the story you were telling Liam was cut off by a loud knock at the door. You hurried to open the door. “Oh hey Harry!” you said with a smile; Harry, however didn’t look so happy. “How could you two lie to me! You told me you were not dating! I overheard Liam talking to you yesterday!” Harry went on dramatically. “Okay well technically we didn’t lie… the whole time.” you said. “Yeah! We didn’t really lie, we just didn’t tell you” Liam added. Harry rolled his eyes at you, “Just to let you know, neither of you are succeeding in trying to save your asses right now.” “Harry you’re overreacting!” You claimed. “No (Y/N) I don’t think I am, I asked you guys so many times if you guys were dating and you guys always said ‘no,’ ‘no of course not Harry,’ ‘no we’re just friends’ blah blah blah and now I find out that you are dating!? You better explain.” Harry said, crossing his arms and tapping his foot on the hardwood of Liam’s living room. “Well that was true at one point! We have been really good friends for over three years and one day about two months ago, I don’t know…something just changed and soon enough everything fell into place…” Liam explained, smiling at you. “Fine but were you ever going to tell me? I had to find out by overhearing your phone conversation yesterday!” he argued. “Of course we were gonna tell you we just hadn’t worked out how, or when… and it’s not my fault you were eavesdropping Mister!” You countered. “hmph” Harry huffed, rolling his eyes again. “Oh come on Haz, we’re sorry! You know you love us!!” you said as you and Liam jumped to engulf him in a huge bear hug. “Yeah yeah yeah I guess, but I better be making the first toast at the wedding” he pouted. “Of course, Harry” you laughed.

Louis:

Neither you or Louis were a big fan of secrets. So you weren’t too thrilled when management recommended a secret relationship. Though you understood it was for your own safety, it seemed unnecessary to keep it from everyone, including the rest of the boys whom you’d met multiple times before. Very reluctantly, the two of you agreed to keep it a secret, under one condition; once the secret’s out, it’s out. There would be no lying or denial of the relationship, simply because it was unnecessary. This being said, you and Louis didn’t try very hard to keep it a secret. You had even created a plan that made it seem as if the boys somehow found out on their own. “Okay they’ll be over in about ten minutes, when I text you, that’s your cue to send the text we planned okay?” he said. “Okay, got it” you confirmed before the hanging up the phone and waiting for your cue. You couldn’t wait to get this over with and be done with all the secrets and sneaking around. In almost exactly ten minutes Louis sends you the text you’d been waiting for “now.” You were quick to copy and paste the text that you already had typed out. “How much longer do we have to keep our relationship a secret? I hate that management made even suggested us to do this. It’s not fair to anyone :(“ you sent quickly. It didn’t take long for you to get a call. “Hello?” you answered. “You and Louis are together?!” Liam said, a gentle happiness in his tone. “We are! and um how did you find out? Did he tell you?” you asked, faking curiosity. No, he was showing me this video on his phone when the text notification popped up and I saw it.” he admitted. “Oh oopsie! Oh well, we’ve been dying to tell you guys anyway.” you explained. “Yeah, Louis was just explaining that. It’s really sweet, I’m really happy for you two…we all are! you’ll be good for each other” he said. “Aw, Liamm! That’s so sweet, thank you” you said, a bright smile on your face. You couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that you and Louis were finally free.
