Life Was a Song, You Came Along
, by @rainbowninja :It’s embarrassing how long it takes Louis to recognize his own
song. Niall had sung it as a bright, hopeful love song, and that’s
honestly how Louis had always assumed it should sound. But this new
voice, slow and rough, stripped of any backing instrument, has infused
the lyrics with just the tumultuous mix of fear and defiance that Louis
can remember so clearly from the night he wrote them. It’s not a comfortable thing, to feel like someone is singing all your secrets back to you. Louis
is a songwriter trapped in a lie that could ruin his best friend’s
career. Harry owns a record store, distrusts everyone in the music
industry on principle, but loves Niall Horan’s newest album. A modern retelling of Singin’ in the Rain.

Only You Can Be My Alpha
, by @wubwubnparmaham: Louis has never liked being an Omega. As if it wasn’t enough to
despise what he was born into, he couldn’t even be what he was
correctly. Harry Styles changes all of that.ORThe one
where Louis is banished from his tribe, and lands himself in Harry’s
instead. The alluring Pack Alpha makes Louis question his nature and he
doesn’t know how he feels about that. But you can’t fight destiny.
Larry Werevolves and a/b/o (154k) : it’s been a long time since I read such an epic story !! So adventures, blood and tears, drama, love and family pack , and great smut (obviously bottom Louis). also special kudos for the fandoms clash, it was great ^^’
Now you know me (for your eyes only) , by @nadnadnad : Based on this prompt that I found on tumblr (link in the notes): au where harry and louis are solo artists and they’re not exactly
friends per se but they’re friendly, know each other from industry
parties and things like that and there’s always been this weird unspoken
sexual tension between them and louis’ always kinda confused bc isn’t
harry the biggest ladies’ man in the industry?? and one day harry asks
louis to collab with him and of course louis says yes even tho he’s
kinda surprised and harry plays the song for him and louis is completely
blown away by how beautiful it is and it’s a love song and he’s like
damn whoever this is about is lucky as fuck bc it’s clearly written from
personal experience so they spend all this time together recording and
it’s super bittersweet bc they click right away and it takes louis about
three seconds to realize he has a huge fucking crush on harry but on
the other hand harry clearly had someone in mind when he wrote the song
so the last day of recording comes and louis’ like “thanks for having me
on the song” and harry just shrugs and is like “well it just seemed
fitting bc the song is about you”
Larry famous/famous AU (77k) : angsty, with a lot of songwriting, pining , and closeting , some TW for drugs, and some great smut (kind of share that).
What’s Stopping You?
, by @flamboyantommo :
That shirt was what held his attention again. How many other guys had
the same shirt that H and Harry had, and – wait. H… Harry. Harry did
yoga. So did H. They both had the same shirt, and had both gotten home
ten minutes ago and were cooking dinner. No way. Louis
looked at the picture again, and stared more closely at H’s lips. They
were pink and pouty, with the lower lip a bit plumper than the top, just
like Harry. And H had brown, curly hair that reached his shoulders,
just like Harry. Louis looked over at Harry, who was putting his hair back up into a bun as the kitchen was most likely getting warmer. “Holy shit,” Louis whispered. Have I been flirting with my own roommate all this time? — Or,
the one where Harry wants to get over his crush on Louis, so he makes a
Grindr account to find someone new. Of course, Louis messages him, not
realizing H’s real identity. It only takes a few days for them to figure
Larry Roommates AU and Grindr AU : obvious roommates and so much pining and texting (sexting?) and flirting ! Amazing smut (bottom Louis) too !
like a boomerang
: AU in which Harry gets trapped in a lift, Louis gets stuck in a Wednesday, and it’s always February 2nd. Until it isn’t.

Can’t Start A Fire Without A Spark
, by @wellingtontat :
Louis Tomlinson is the pop sensation with his first new single out since
taking a personal hiatus from the spotlight. Harry is a paparazzi hired
to photograph him during promo. Louis hates paparazzi with a passion,
but there’s just something about the pretty young pap with wide green
eyes and chocolate curls that Louis can’t shake from his head.
Larry famous/not famous AU : OMG my prompt has been written and it’s even better that I imagined ! No smut and a lot of banter :)
I walked along the avenue with my heart open to the unknown I wanted to say hello to anyone, anyone and it was you, I told you anything, It was enough to talk to you, to tame you -Joe Dassin
“Excuse me, sir? Sir please! I…oh dear.”
“Madam? Madam please just wait! Just a moment of your time?”
“Please help me. I just need a moment to ask… I just need some directions. If somebody would just…madam? Monsieur? Anybody?”
“They’re not going to stop.” The voice comes from behind, where before there’d only been an empty alley. It’s unfamiliar, but the accent is English. Harry feels relief balloon in his chest and he turns around.
“Thank god!” He breathes, smiling at the stranger leaning against the cracked masonry of the building at his back. “I was beginning to fear nobody in this city spoke English.”
“Oh they speak English just fine, everyone in Paris does. They’re just too important to bother with you.”
Harry presses his lips together and frowns. “But you aren’t?”
“Mate.” The man laughs, shifting from his easy slouch to stand straight, spreading his arms to the sides. “Do I look important to you?”
I haven't heard ONE larrie, not a big larrie, or a little larrie, or a larrie anon explain or discuss the fact that Louis directly compared his and his mothers relationship to his and Freddie's. Like HOW do you disregard that? That fact ALONE, that Louis's would say that, makes Larry or babygate impossible. If I believed in larrie, there would be no way to rationalize it to make Larry make sense. I don't care if you think Louis signed his life away, that wouldn't come out of mouth EVER.
4. (Take You Back Where You Belong) This Could Be Our Favorite Song(orphan_account) - When recently divorced, thirty-five year-old, overworked tax accountant Louis Tomlinson gets sent on a two-week vacation to Aruba by his best friend, he automatically assumes it’s going to be two weeks of panicking about all of the work he’s missing and staying holed up in his room. But then, right on his first night in Aruba, he meets Harry Styles, the cheeky, crass, and charming waiter and up-and-coming musician. Who happens to only be eighteen years old.
5. From Eight Until Late, I Think About You (supernope) - After finding out that his University of Brighton roommate has a YouTube channel, Harry starts up his own channel, on which he posts videos of himself doing weekly challenges. He strikes up a friendship with Louis, a popular youtuber in London, that starts in the comments on their videos and progresses to texting, skyping, and talking about each other in their own videos far too often.
6. Always Come Back To You (whoknows) - One Direction is long over, Louis has recently come out, and he may have been lying when he told the world he had a boyfriend…
harry: gets the bee tattoo, writes love songs about louis, tweets about louis (and theres 0 damage control), is revolving his entire promo around 28 (a number fans speculate is about larry) louis: literally got the dagger, lets us know he is a supportive husband by being online before anything drops about harry, looks miserable any time he's stunting, constantly likes blue/green images on insta (even after knowing we link this to larry) anons: so do you think louis and harry broke up then???
