otp: meet me under the stars

Larry Fics Rec

some of my favourite larry fics ever

Louis works in a library where his own books sit on the shelves. Also, there may or may not be a Harry Styles involved and he may or may not be Louis’ muse. Not that Louis is admitting to anything. 

Louis knows about beauty; the combination of qualities that pleases the aesthetic senses. He creates that combination every day in the garments he designs while studying fashion at uni. The cut of the design, the color of the fabric, the intricacy of the stitching; it all comes together to create something beautiful. When the science student with the long legs and dimpled smile agrees to model for him, Louis decides he’s found beauty personified. Harry just thinks Louis needs someone to show him how beautiful he is.

The one where Harry hates grocery shopping (but not really), and Louis hates doing the dishes (but not really), and they both have a liking for kittens. And eggnog.

Louis is a barista who is a bit damaged from a previous relationship. Harry is a musician who is all warmth and light. Rebuilding a life takes time.

Louis takes the kids to visit Harry on tour.

The one where Harry is the quarterback who wants to be a photographer, Louis is the piano prodigy who like being a wallflower, and it’s a roller coaster of a life but they’re along for the ride.

Louis meets a boy who asks him about the books he reads and changes mostly everything.

Louis Tomlinson is one of the most promising dancers of the English National Ballet, on track to become the youngest principal dancer in the company’s history. That is, until forces conspire to significantly complicate his life, including: a surprise ballet, an unfairly attractive guest choreographer, and being pushed into a rivalry with his best mate. Featuring lots of wine, dancing, pining, and a happy ending.

The one where Harry is going to be King, Louis can’t handle it like he thinks, Zayn is finally happy, Liam’s a massive geek and Niall’s marrying a princess.

The one where Harry’s an event planner and Louis’ in the military and it creates problems until Obama fixes it.

Louis is an insecure mess and he hides behind his blog. Harry’s a boy with a personality too bright and he’s everything Louis thought he would hate. They end up falling in love.

The one where Louis is a famous actor who dubs Harry, Harold of the Bakery after meeting him while hiding from paparazzi. The one where Louis makes dreams come true by taking Harry to the sold out Free Skies concert. Being best friends with the band has it’s privileges, or so that’s what Niall always told him. 

Louis goes to bed having ordered a nineteen year-old husband.

Louis has a 3 year old son and works at a daycare while getting his education degree. Harry’s a fresh face Popstar with the world in his hands. They meet over applesauce and hide n’ go seek.

AU. As the first British footballer to come out at the prime of his career, it helps that Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term, committed relationship. Even if that relationship is fake.
