In a really good mood so thought I’d make a rec of some of the happiest Larry fics I’ve ever read:
Summary: It’s as he’s lying there on the hard, sticky tiles that it dawns on Louis that maybe this wasn’t the best course of action. He could’ve just left the store before the boy came back. But then he’d never be able to show his face in here again and the pretty boy would be left for all eternity thinking that Louis is a weirdo. Louis pouts at that idea. He could’ve just waited for the boy, apologised, and explained that choosing just one ice-cream was so hard, what with their bountiful array of flavours. But no. Louis always has to go for the most dramatic option doesn’t he? He just can’t be a normal human.
Or the story where Harry’s a pretty boy in an ice-cream parlour and Louis embarrasses himself.
Summary: “Everything all sorted? Need help with the buckles? I know they’re a bit tricky in this compartment.”
The voice startles Louis out of his daze, and he turns toward the voice to let him know he figured it out. When he catches sight of the owner of the voice, though, his response dies in his throat. Whatever he had imagined the conductor of a children’s train that rides around the shopping centre in Leeds would look like, this is certainly not it.
Leaning through the window, arms folded across the sill, is a green-eyed angel with cherry red lips stretched wide in a smile and dimples flirting in his cheeks. A black conductor’s hat is the only confirmation that this is not some gorgeous stranger who’s come to flirt with Louis through the window of a children’s train, but is just a man doing his job.
[or, Harry drives a kiddie train in the shopping centre for the summer and is obsessed with babies, and Louis never stood a chance.]
Summary: “Oops,” Rosie repeats happily from beside him, and except for the two front teeth she’s missing, the mischievous smile she flashes at Harry is such a carbon copy of Louis’ that he has to shake his head, looking back and forth between them several times as if to sort out which one is which
(Kidfic set in in the southern U.S.)
Summary: AU. “we should get married,“ louis says, and this time, neither of them say no.
Summary: In retrospect, Louis should have grabbed the yarn and run.
also known as the classic tale of Louis’s struggle with a hippie boyfriend, a ginger cat, and a lot of wool.
Summary: Harry works at the McDonald’s Drive Thru and Louis desperately tries to win him over with pranks.
Summary: Because Louis could almost choke on it sometimes, the depth of his love for this man. It bubbles up in him, when Harry laughs so hard his mouth stretches ridiculously wide, or when he stands all sweet and pigeon-toed with his hands behind his back, when he dances like the dorky dad he is, when he wraps his big gangly limbs around Louis and holds him tight. Louis lives in a state of being constantly overwhelmed by his love for Harry Tomlinson, and he wouldn’t change a single thing about him.
Or, Harry and Louis take a vacation with their kids. It’s exactly as sappy as it sounds.
Summary: There are only four left.
Louis does the math in his head. Last week, he only picked two, and there had seemed to be a decent amount left. Or had he been hallucinating? He isn’t sure.
Now that he thinks about it, the tree has been lacking recently. He recalls a particular tangerine that was difficult to reach, a bit on the higher side. Tall Tangerine Terrence, he had secretly dubbed it in his head. But now, even Tall Tangerine Terrence is gone.
Or, Louis has an unknown neighbour who keeps stealing his tangerines. He didn’t expect for his heart to be stolen, too.
For the prompt: "louis notices his tangerine tree becoming bare, which is strange bc he never picks more than he needs. one day he sees his neighbor’s arm from over the fence, reaching up to pick off his tree. but he’s gone inside before louis can come out. finally one day, louis sprints out and catches him in the act. his neighbor, harry, is a little scared but louis is ok about it, tells him to ask. they end up having a system where harry bakes him things for tangerines.”
Summary: louis talks to himself a lot so he buys a hedgehog and flirts through post-it notes with his fit neighbor who makes wonderful apple crumble.
“Yeah. You met Bernard, so you wanna meet Barbara and Eugene?” he asks before mentally slapping himself because why on Earth would he show Harry, possibly the fittest boy he’s ever laid eyes on, the plant and goldfish that he talks to like regular people?
Summary: Niall sighs. He leans forward, pushing his mug of tea carefully to the side, before bracing his elbows on the table, chin in his hands. It makes him look like some sort of bottle-blonde cherub. "You have quite the fanbase, Harry. I’m not denying that. And you’ve done a good job of popping out every once in a while in the past two years, just to make sure you’re still talked about. But that’s all you’ve done, and I’m not satisfied. I want more.” He blinks at Harry. “Don’t you want more?”
