So, I decided to make a masterpost. And I was like, what should I make it about? Then I decided to do one about all the times when Harry and Louis looked like legit rockstars! Mostly based on these two pics:
(I know, this is my 3rd “fic rec of the week” this week, I definitely have to find another name for these fic rec. Feel free to suggest.)
I have to start with a direct entry in my Top 10 fav fics ever :
- Let me make a thing of cream and stars, by paynner : it doesn’t explain why he’s lying on the floor, with Harry Styles, of all people, planking on top of him.As
in, seventeenth most influential person in London,
pop-star-turned-rock-star Harry Styles. The same Harry Styles who has
had countless model girlfriends, left, right and centre. Also the same
Harry Styles who has been the subject of Louis’ wet dreams since he was
about eighteen.(Or: Louis is a Radio 1 DJ and Harry is a pop-star he interviews.)
Larry AU (24k) with ALL I love in fics : famous!Harry & Louis, Twitter interactions, pinning, shameless flirting, Ziam being Ziam, and SO FUCKING GREAT SMUT. And there’s a cute/nice/fluffy epilogue too and i’m so in love with this fic, goooood. GO READ IT NOW .
Larry High School AU (17k) where Louis, captain of the football team, is stuck in the lockers room with Harry, captain of the swimming team. Shower smut and fluff happened.
-Falling for your Hallelujah, by whiskeyinthejar : There’s a homeless boy who’s made his new place outside Louis’s work.
Louis, in unexpected generosity, offers him a cup of coffee and a
sprinkle doughnut. No one really expected it to become a Thing.
Larry AU (19k). this one was a bit painful for me because homeless is a trigger for me. But I continued to read it and I’m so glad I did it. Very well written, the characters are great. No smut, but a lot of pinning and a bit angsty.
Strange Larry AU (10k) with a popstar!Louis and rocker!Harry . Fair warning about drugs, basically Louis in under their influence half the fic. No smut, no real end. Strange, like I said. But I liked it, so…
- A long way from the playground, by bethaboolou : When it comes time for Harry and Louis to take the
final step in revealing their long-time love, Harry thinks he’s ready.
He’s been ready for four long years. He’s packed his anchor shirt,
Louis’ map t-shirt, the paprazzi have been notified and all the seeding
has been done. They’re ready to take their first public steps into the
world as a couple.But are they really?A fic set during the
Doncaster Rovers charity game where Louis plays footie, Harry is his
loyal cheerleader, and the rest of the boys are there in case anyone
gets cold feet.
Short Larry canon (7k), perfect balance between smut and real talk about “how the coming-out could change their life”. I loved it so much !! And I maybe had some tears in my eyes in the last paragraph, but you can’t prove a thing.
- April fools, by mistresscurvy: Now, staring down at the platinum band on his own left hand (“only the
best for you, Liam,” Louis had said, smirking as he slid the ring on
Liam’s finger), Liam wasn’t so sure any of this was the best idea for an
April Fool’s prank. But both of them knew he would go along with it.
Liam always did.
Lilo Canon fake relationship fic (12k) or how an April Fool’s prank turns in a mess. Smut is nice, and the fic is funny, barely angsty.
