Meet Me In The Hallway

Just let me know I’ll be at the door, at the door
Hoping you’ll come around
Just let me know I’ll be on the floor, on the floor
Maybe we’ll work it out

  • Red Brick Heart : Uni AU. Harry had turned up at the halls of residence expecting fun, new friends, and maybe a life experience or two. What he doesn’t expect is a surprise roommate who’s loud and dramatic and obsessed with tea and is maybe, actually, all he’s ever wanted.

Sign of the Times

Just stop your crying, it’s a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here

  • Here In The Afterglow1970’s AU. In a tiny town in Idaho, Louis’ life is changed forever by the arrival of a curious stranger.

Carolina

She’s such a good girl 
She’s a good girl 
She feels so good

  • You’ll Breathe Me In (You Won’t Release)  AU where Louis is a 25-year-old driving instructor and Harry is a 17-year-old virgin who’s really awful at seduction, except for the time he gets Louis to fall for him and fuck him senseless and take him on kinky adventures.

Two Ghosts

We’re not who we used to be
We’re just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me
Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat

  • Love Is A Rebellious Bird :  AU in which the boys still make music. Louis is the concertmaster of the London Symphony Orchestra, Harry is the New! and Exciting! interim conductor/ex-cello prodigy who “has made Mozart cool again” according to Esquire Magazine (Louis hates him immediately, which is definitely why he internet stalked him in his dark bedroom late at night that one time), and Niall is the best. Zayn and Liam are around too.

Sweet Creature

But we’re still young
We don’t know where we’re going but we know where we belong

I know, we started
Two hearts in one home

  • Never Be : The one where Harry Styles moves to Connecticut from England for nine months as a part of a study abroad program, and he just so happens to move in with Louis Tomlinson and family.

Only Angel

I must admit I thought I’d like to make you mine
As I went about my business through the warning signs
End up meeting in the hallway every single time

  • Gods & Monsters : The instructions were simple: seduce and destroy Harry Styles. Not once did they discuss the option of Louis actually falling in love. So, naturally, that’s exactly what he did.

 Kiwi

And all the boys, they were saying they were into it
Such a pretty face, on a pretty neck

Driving me crazy, but I’m into it, but I’m into it
I’m kind of into it

  • Escapade : In the grand scheme of things, finding a date for a wedding should be no problem for Louis Tomlinson. He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s reasonably well behaved. But when the wedding is for his lifelong best friend (and former boyfriend), and is happening in under a month, finding a date for the ceremony and accompanying festivities becomes more of an adventure than he ever could have planned for.

Ever Since New York

I need something, tell me something new
Choose your words, ‘cause there’s no antidote
For this curse
Oh, what’s it waiting for?
Must this hurt you just before you go?

  • Empty Skies : For three years, Harry has been running from his past. Now, he is moving to London and pledges to fulfil his only dream – making it big in the music industry. Not everyone has a place, though, and the competition is tough. As is his past catching up on him.Louis is part of the biggest boy band of the world, and getting there had meant a lot of hard work, as well as sacrificing parts of his heart and soul. He’s still happy. Maybe not as happy as he could be, but who is he to complain?

Woman

I hope you can see, the shape that I’m in
While he’s touching your skin
He’s right where I should, where I should be
But you’re making me bleed

  • You Are The Blood : A seventh-year Hogwarts AU in which Niall gets all the girls, Liam goes on a journey of self-discovery, Zayn falls in love, Harry wants something more, and Louis tries to figure out once and for all why he, a Muggleborn, was sorted into Slytherin.

From The Dining Table

We haven’t spoke since you went away
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won’t you ever be the first to break?
Even the phone misses your call, by the way

  • These Inconvenient FireworksFuture AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.

in all seriousness, you know who would be the best person to interview harry? louis. louis would be the best interviewer ever bc he would let harry ramble on and on giving him all the time he needs to answer a question and he would ask all the right questions and he would make harry giggle and blush and harry would be so relaxed knowing he’s being interviewed by someone he completely trusts and it would just be so beautiful and just touch on the right subjects and the interview wouldn’t pry into harry’s life asking for things harry isn’t willing to share

A Brief Elounor 2.0 Timeline (To Date)

19 January: Official Danielle/Louis break-up announcement in the Sun

20 January: Daisy likes first pic of Eleanor on Instagram; Over the next month, she liked 32 different posts and pictures; Phoebe liked 9

20 January: Eleanor posts a picture to Instagram from the UK

22 January: Eleanor likes video of Gigi posted by Tommy Hilfiger like she was still promoting the brand/show

28 January: Eleanor posts instagram story from a hotel in the UK; Had drinks with uni friends there

29 January: Louis refollows Eleanor on Instagram; Russell, his manager, followed a minute later

30 January: The Sun & Mail write articles reintroducing Eleanor

4 February: James Arthur announces on Twitter he’s friends with Louis and just “hangin out” with him; Update Accounts report Harry was at LAX on his way to London

8 February: The day of the Tommy Hilfiger show; Eleanor didn’t attend, but Max did; Louis was in the studio

9 February: Her own UAs are confused about why she didn’t go to the Tommy show, especially since Max did

12 February: James Arthur starts following an Eleanor UA on Twitter

13 February: Louis on the James Corden show; Harry is papped in London

16 February: Eleanor follows Louis on Instagram and likes his selfie; Louis likes Eleanor’s selfie posted months ago of her in the same brand/design as the shirt Louis was papped in, also on the 16th; James Corden then followed Eleanor on Twitter late that night

19 February: The Sun writes an article “1D Star Louis Tomlinson Rekindles Romance with Ex-Girlfried Eleanor Calder” saying they’d been secretly spending time in LA together and she missed the Tommy Hilfiger show specifically to spend time with Louis. 

What does all of this mean?

The effort that went into reintroducing her to this fandom using the actors in the current promo narrative (James Corden, James Arthur) is profoundly contrived. His own sisters accounts set the stage HOURS after the official break-up announcement of his “relationship” with Danielle. The ink wasn’t dry on the print edition of the Sun before Elounor 2.0 had begun. 

They set the stage for the James Arthur reconciliation, too. Louis included him in an Instagram post on 4 February. Then, a week later, James Arthur’s twitter account happens to follow an Eleanor update account? @God why.  

Louis followed Eleanor on Instagram on 29 January. His new “manager,” Russell, who had been on promo stops with him, followed her a minute later. 

Then, on 6 February, James Corden and Louis announced Louis was coming on the show on 13 February. Then on 16 February, James followed Eleanor on Instagram late at night.. 

Even Harry’s flight out of town his own Update Accounts all knew about was part of this puzzle, too. He left town right as the 2 week window of Eleanor’s absence from social media began. Eleanor uses Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat religiously, including documenting her travel to and from London to other parts of the world. This just happens to be the one time in the last 18 months she hasn’t done that. She was also not included in any social media posts by her own friends in LA, so if she was there, did she spend 2 weeks surgically inserted up Louis’ asshole? That’s sure what they want you to believe!

But not even her own UAs are buying it.

They’ve been building a low level reintroduction campaign on social media with his sister’s accounts. Then, they added the additional layer of Louis’ and Eleanor’s social media account. They got relevant, timely actors currently doing promo with Louis to follow her and one of her update accounts. Harry got out of town in true 2013 style, to attend business with Jeff on another continent. Eleanor went ghost on social media, another 2013-2014 tactic. They set up a series of plausible events if you look at the surface, easy to write an article about without looking wildly false. And when all else fails, they’ll lie. That’s the ball game. 

And this is nothing to say of the actual images involved here beyond the strategy behind it. I’m just going to quote @conscious–ramblings here. 

Imagine splitting up with your long term boyfriend after while you dated he told everyone he wouldn’t marry you, and a year later cheated on you publicly. Imagine him then publicly going out constantly with different girls, spreading it all over social media to everyone you both know. Then imagine he knocks up one of the randoms he’s been out with once and her cousin tells everyone who will listen that he was dating the girl while he dated you. Then while he ignores pregnant girl and won’t talk to anyone about it, he starts dating someone else (who looks a bit like a budget version of you mixed with a budget version of his sister). Then after new girl publicly cheats on *him* he slides back into your DMs the next week.

IMAGINE explaining to your mates you are taking him back, let alone the whole world.

So yes, it’s contrived. Yes, it’s annoying. But it’s pretty transparent, too, so don’t give them the power of reacting emotionally if you can. Mock it. Ridicule it. Call out the bullshit. Shove the facts back down their throat. That’s how we get through this.

Secret Sign Language MasterPost

This is for @zenlikejen. 

Disclaimer: I don’t own all of these gifs (only some) so credit to the original owners of those i don’t own.

Okay so it has been clear from the start that some certain members from the band One Direction have gone to the great lengths (and most kind lengths) of leaning sign language. These two members are Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson and despite them using their new talent as a way to communicate to the deaf fans, they also have mostly used it to communicate with each other, and each other only.  

We firstly have this:

Here we clearly see Louis gives a small thumbs up before tapping his chest multiple times with his left hand at which Harry doesn’t notice properly at first. Also Louis realizes he is tapping with his wrong hand for what he is trying to say so therefore corrects himself by switching to his right hand and this time Harry sees; like so: 

When Louis taps his chest, in sign language it means ‘Mine’, so basically he is telling Harry that he is his and Harry replies with a small thumbs up, a common thing which I will talk about further down in the post. 

Louis also glances at Harry here and touches his chest, a year later and they still communicate through signing, Louis again telling Harry that he is his. 


Harry here signs to Louis something along the lines of ‘Later we talk, before kissing’ but the second part can also mean ‘I want the truth’ as its unsure if he touches his lip or chin.

And Louis replies back with this: 

Which would make Harry saying ‘Later we talk before kissing’ more reliable due to Louis’ answer. 

Still complete cuties here.


Again during an interview, Louis seems to rub his hands together which research says could mean the letter ‘H’. In this case, H for Harry; or H was also a nickname that Louis could have had for Harry.

He then taps his chest twice again (meaning ‘Mine’) except he uses his fist more which may take away its meaning, but they could of changed it up more so that the signing was more personal to each other. 


Now during one of their songs on the TMH tour, Louis and Harry were stood next to each other on the stage. Louis glances at Harry for a moment to get his attention before crossing his fingers and then placing his hand back onto his microphone stand, fingers still crossed. 

Now some say that this means ‘Hope’ however others say because of how Louis did it, it means ‘Forever’ so I guess its your own choice to decide which one you want it to mean. 


Then we have this:

Now everyone knows that in sign language this sign with another person means ‘Lover’/ ‘Make Love’.

So really there is nothing much to say about this apart from the fact that it is adorable as fuck and the most cliche thing that a pair of platonic best friends could do together. 


No we are on to the famous ‘Thumbs up’ sign that they both constantly used to give each other on stage, during interviews and at any moment they were happy, having fun or in each others company. Now I researched this and found that it meant different to what the ‘Lovers’ sign that’s above. Many use the thumbs up sign as a way of saying good or as a positive attitude towards things like ‘I am good’ or ‘This is fun’ etc; except it also has another meaning. More discreetly, this sign can mean ‘I love you’ or ‘Love’ but is different from ‘Lover’ and ‘Make love’ so the two signs should not get mixed up.

20+ Jealous Louis Fics:

In a twisted turn of events, Louis finds himself posing as the brother of his fiancé, Harry, for an annual company retreat.

Did he sign up for this? No.

Is he doing it anyway? Yes.

Can they actually pull this off? Probably not.

Louis isn’t someone who Harry thought he could ever be with, and Louis never thought he’d break his rules for anyone.

Sometimes being wrong isn’t so bad after all.

AU. In which Louis is a solicitor at one of London’s most prestigious law firms and Harry happens to apply for the position as his trainee. And everyone else is around, too.

AU in which Louis hates his job and loves Harry, Harry just wants a distraction, everyone else wants them to get their shit together, and Louis learns the hard way that new beginnings are only possible when something ends.

Agahahahhahaha Hahahaha the stalkers that edited the background out of their photos and were clearly told where to go to meet Louis just so happened to see Eleanor with him too but are just posting pictures, bahahahahahahahhaha okay right totally not setup. Totally.

Why I keep logging onto Tumblr to see what’s happening with One Direction

Monthly Fic Rec April (x)

Louis is Harry Styles’ biggest fan. It doesn’t matter that Harry is famous for being a food blogger and Louis can’t cook to save his life.
At least, until Harry offers to give Louis a cooking lesson. Then it matters just a teensy bit.

In short, Harry’s in love with someone and doesn’t care about dating anyone else, Louis never felt home in L.A., Liam writes love songs for someone he shouldn’t write love songs to, and Niall makes everything better with good food. 

Harry and Louis are both solo artists, and they’re not exactly friends but they are friendly with each other until one day Harry asks Louis to collab with him on a song he wrote and things start changing (ft. a lot of sexual tension)

The one where Harry Styles has a bad reputation and a heart of gold, and Louis Tomlinson wishes he wasn’t so enchanted by boys who looked like Disney characters and wore shirts with bumble bees on them.
[aka Louis is the director of the Styles Elephant Sanctuary and really doesn’t want to babysit his funder’s spoiled lay-about son for two months]

Louis accidentally breaks Harry’s camera lens and in order to get it fixed, they decide to participate in a romantic couples study. The only issue is that they are not actually couple. Well that and the fact they cannot stand each other.

pet shop girl

Harry is lonely and meets a girl at a pet shop 

 I slowly pulled in and parked in the spot directly right in front of the shop. I turn off the ignition and pull the keys out of the socket and stuff them in my pocket. I reach for the door handle and pull it down to step out of the car. I stroll up and step on the side walk, reaching and ripping the door handle open. I hear the loud chimes as I opened the door all the way. I see an older woman feeding a few of the puppies some kibble, when she notices my presence she lifts her head up and look over towards my way.

anonymous asked:

Do you know any fics where harry is cutting and Louis catches him while doing it or discovering his scars?

Here You Go:

Secret Kindle Fires by sometimesiquestionmylifechoices [ 22/22 | English | 52,309 ] *

Louis is a 22 year old uni professor. Harry is his student who constantly insults him about his sexuality. Louis tries to ignore it but the curly-haired boy won’t let up. But one night, Louis discovers that Harry may have a dark secret he keeps locked inside.

Lights Will Guide You Home by louisxharry1 [ 25/25 | English | 137,227 ] *

Louis Tomlinson is his school’s resident bad boy and easily the most liked person there. He’s loud and confident and popular. He spends most of his time abusing his parent’s money or partying or playing football. He also spends a good deal of it obsessing over the quiet curly boy in his English class, but no one really needs to know that. Harry Styles is more or less invisible at the same school (unless he’s being harassed). He’s shy and painfully insecure and quiet. He spends most of his time crying on his bedroom floor with a razor pressed against his skin or trying (and failing) to think of reasons to stay alive. So, of course, it’s inevitable that they fall for each other.

Save Me From Myself by alittlebitlove [ 17/17 | English | 50,420 ] *

Harry Styles is a former worldwide known popstar whose fame dropped nearly two years ago. Now, he’s a drug-addict, he self-harms and lives his life in shitty apartment. He’s just a step away from reaching the bottom and his friends – the only two friends he still has – are utterly worried about him. Louis Tomlinson is a new hot stuff. He’s on top of the charts and girls all over the world are going crazy about him. He’s also one of few people that still remember Harry Styles for who he was and his talent. One night, Zayn and Niall meet Louis at the bar and, somehow, their subject becomes Harry. And that’s how they made a plan – they’ll hire Louis to fix Harry. No matter how ‘cause Louis knows very well what Harry’s going through. He just might be his saviour.

I Hear You Calling In The Dead Of The Night by Thelonelycoast [ 11/11 | English | 72,201 ] *

No one really notices Marcel Styles. In fact, Marcel’s so invisible that if his teachers don’t call on him in lessons - and they rarely do - Marcel can go whole days without speaking to anyone other than his mum, his sister, Gemma, his cat, Dusty and the school librarian, Alma. And if he just so happens to have a tiny, miniscule crush on the footie captain, Louis Tomlinson, well, that’s no one’s business but his own. Until Louis notices him back.

Baby Heaven’s In Your Eyes by theboyfriendstagram [ 24/24 | English | 120,925 ] ***

Or a sixth form!AU where Harry is the fucked up bad boy with too many problems, Louis is the perfect rich boy with too much money and their schools are right across from each other. They meet at a party and that’s the last (and maybe the only) thing they need.

I hope these are okay - make sure you read the warnings/tags beforehand in case of any triggers! - Happy Reading! :) 

I’m not nearly as mad about the pap and Louis bc in my eyes that part, up until the fall, was planned. However, those 3 girls cornering and ganging up on Eleanor was obviously not planned. Louis sounded so shocked and scared. He obviously had no idea what was happening at that point. He rushed to protect Eleanor because that’s what he does; he protects people. Eleanor must have been terrified, the situation was obviously out of Louis’ hands and he was scared, too. How fucking dare those girls attack Eleanor like that. How dare Louis’ team doesn’t send a bodyguard with them. How does any of this bullshit happen and Louis’ team still lets the story run that paints Louis in a bad light

anonymous asked:

Why are ppl so exited? rusty is with him, so it means he's with his shitty team, and nothing good ever came out from rusty/jessy. they likely will do a ''happy hetero father louis'' photoshoot then something really good and groundbreaking.

i’m in the middle on this particular topic lol. i totally understand why people are super excited for a photoshoot because new louis pics sound AMAZING and he’s the prettiest human and he deserves to have cameras capturing him serving looks - it’s wayyyy overdue - but yeah, as far as it being a really genuine shoot that truly showcases who louis is, well, i’d say my expectations for photos fitting that description at this point (when he still has a fake girlfriend, fake baby, and fake super hetero laddy image) are quite low. but we’ll see!!!

none of us know anything at this point, so i don’t think it’s wrong that people are excited. i’d recommend just being patient and waiting to see what happens instead of automatically assuming the absolute worst.

Ok, seeing as it’s clear Louis is going back to the UK, I am going to throw the most outlandish scenario out there so it can only be as bad or better in comparison. Here goes:

Louis gets papped arriving at Heathrow. Eleanor is there to greet him and get papped too, at the arrivals gate holding a huge sign that says ‘Welcome home Louis, head in my direction.’

They are wearing matching outfits from head to toe (Adidas obvs, comfort over style) and pose for dozens of photos with stalkers who just happen to be there.

Wrapped in Light, in Life, in Love by tomorrows

Length: 19k

It should be embarrassing — it is a bit embarrassing, actually, because he can feel Lila watching over him like a hawk, but Louis’ got a palm on his thigh and there’s a cherry red lollipop in his hand and Harry feels so bloody dizzy with butterflies. He brings the lollipop to his mouth and sure enough, the sweet cherry flavor feels more therapeutic than anything, like it’s made from warm hugs and naps by the fireplace. He’s too busy falling in love all over again to be embarrassed.

“S’good, innit?”

Harry nods his head. He feels like a child, but it’s okay because Louis is there and he’s staring right at him, blue eyes consumed by Harry before him. Being at the center of Louis’ attention is just as overwhelming as Harry remembers it being fifteen years ago.

Of all the things to happen while taking care of his niece for a month, falling in love with his boyhood crush all over again is probably the highlight of Harry’s autumn.

Well. That, and getting pregnant.

anonymous asked:

the day this fandom learns that the gp doesn't read beyond the headlines is the day the lord will finally let me delete. if the headline is that louis punched a girl, or had a violent outburst at an airport, or is emotionally unstable- that's what the gp is going to assume happened. they aren't going to cross reference sources to get to the Truth. and i feel like we're getting into "the smear campaign is just hysteria" territory.

Yeah and I’m…….not okay with that. There are plenty of sources shitting on Louis, not just TMZ and the Sun. The story about Louis punching the girl in the face appeared on Perez Hilton’s website, Radar Online, Metro, the DM, Heat, Hollywood Life, J-14, and so on. And no, most of those sources aren’t credible, but just because it’s not People Magazine doesn’t mean it isn’t happening and doesn’t mean people aren’t seeing it. And even if it was just TMZ and The Sun, they have a huge fucking readership and that’s what people are seeing with almost no outlets countering it at the moment. Most other big outlets that were putting Louis in a positive light haven’t posted further articles on the situation, so the bullshit is what people are seeing.

I understand that people go wild and that this fandom definitely comes up with some conspiracy theories that are too ridiculous. I’ve shot down some of those theories on my blog in the past few days. But even looking at this as objectively as I possibly can, the suggestion that the press about Louis isn’t that bad is false. And whether his team is actively aiding the negative press or not (I assume they are when it comes to The Sun, but beyond that, probably not), the fact that nothing is being done to counter any of the negativity is ridiculous. Even if they want to wait for court for the girl to be exposed as a liar, they could do more than the nothing they’ve been doing. They haven’t even bothered to distract people by focusing on promoting Louis’ music video…..like?!?!?! Give me a break.

I feel like reality lies somewhere in between “everything is the worst thing that’s ever happened and it’s irreparable and Louis is fucked forever” and “it’s not that bad at all and Louis’ team isn’t doing anything wrong when it comes to this arrest.” I refuse to stand in either of those camps. I think Louis will be okay because the public has a short attention span and time will prove who he really is, and I do think that certain outlets would be nasty regardless (even if not to these extremes), but in my opinion, there is still absolutely a smear campaign, it is absolutely damaging his public image right now, and his team is absolutely not acting the way they should be.
