Gemma starts responding to every single one of Harry’s texts—regardless of subject—with i don’t care, talk to louis. Liam lets Harry complain to him for hours on Skype, pretending he’s not doing other things while Harry whines about his problems. Niall thinks the whole thing is hilarious, texting Harry links to articles titled So, you want your man to propose? and 15 ways to get him ready for the aisle! and follows each of these up with page upon page of laughing emojis. Harry tries everything, literally everything he can think of short of grabbing Louis by tattooed forearm and yelling, “PROPOSE TO ME BEFORE I COMBUST.”

Or, it takes a village to arrange a proposal, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to go as planned.

Harry has a second phone, and maybe it’s kind of stupid but it’s also pretty cute.

Casting Lines

Amidst the noise - the dog whining, Jamie’s shrieking, Evie’s giggles and bird noises, and Daniel asking loudly, again, about ice-skating - Louis leans in to press a kiss to Harry’s smiling mouth. “Hi.”

Harry doesn’t loosen his grip on Evie’s ankles where they hang over his shoulders, but he kisses Louis back and murmurs a quiet, “Hey, love.”

Paint You By Numbers

Louis didn’t know he could get pregnant and ends up getting impregnated by some guy he doesn’t even remember the face of the next morning. Harry is there for him. They fall in love.

tangled up in you (you and i collide)

“Have a good time?” Louis mumbles into his pillow, deadpan, as Harry strips down to his boxers behind him.

“Mmnn,” Harry hums, climbing into the bed and fitting himself around Louis, skin a little tacky where his sweat hasn’t completely dried. He kisses the back of Louis’ neck, soft and lazy. “Won’t be able to walk right for a week.”

all those chandeliers of hope (or, four shit christmas presents harry received, and one that turned out alright) - usedtothebeach -

Harry’s friends keep surprising him with terrible Christmas gifts. He’s less surprised that Louis is the reason.

The divorce papers come by special delivery on a Tuesday. Harry’s playing Fifa with Liam in the tiny living room of his new apartment when he hears the letter box rattle. He already knows, even before he’s opened up the big manila envelope the postman gives him, what it is.

non au; in which Louis files for divorce and Harry doesn’t know how to live alone again.

Getting married has turned Louis into a properly whipped sap. Harry may or may not want to punch him in the face.

“Lou,” Harry drones, rocking back on the legs of his chair, “C'mon, I hate hangman.”

“Haz,” Louis says, biting back his chuckles. “You’ve got one blank left, look at the bloody thing.”

“L’never figure it out,” Harry grumbles, turning to scowl down at the notebook. “It’s just—”

WILL YOU MARRY M __

Harry freezes.

Or, the one where Louis really wants to marry his boy, but doesn’t quite know how to say it.

“Boybander Harry Styles spotted leaving West Hollywood joined hand in hand with new beau, Xander Ritz”

His heart drops in his chest as he scrolls down, ignoring the short irrelevant article and looking desperately for a picture. Sure enough, there’s pap shots of Harry and Xander, walking hand in hand, looking drunk and cheerful and together.

And that’s—that’s really not what Louis was expecting at all.

“I don’t mean, like,” Louis starts, coughing a bit, “I don’t think he’s become a diva or summat. I’m not trying to start shit. But like - he’s different, yeah? Or am I different?”

“Maybe neither of you is different,” Zayn suggests. “Maybe just, like, your relationship has changed.”

That much is obvious, but the way Zayn says it makes it sound profound.

“Tour’s gonna be weird as fuck,” Louis says with a laugh that’s a lot lighter than how he feels.

(Or, the one where Louis figures it out.)
