Hello! Do you have a tag for fics where either Louis or Harry (or both, why not?) have unconventional jobs? I tried looking at your fic masterpost but I couldn't find it. If not, could you please do one? Thanks in advance lovely!!
astronaut au fic where Louis is staying on the international space
station and Harry is on earth working ground control and he and Louis
have really quiet late night chats after most of the workers are gone
and get to know each other in the biggest long distance relationship u
could ever have…then eventually Louis comes back to earth and they have a

It’s All Brand New Because of You: It’s nearing six o’clock in the evening, and despite the fact
that it’s summer, the aquarium has emptied out considerably and it’s
quiet as Louis wanders the exhibits. A few people try to ask him
questions as he wanders, but Louis knows less about the creatures in the
tanks than they do, so he keeps having to apologize and explain that
he’s just a counselor, not a biologist.AKA, Louis starts a new
job as a summer camp counselor at the local aquarium and Harry is a
biologist who really likes teaching people about the ocean.(16k, biologist Harry)

Horan, Harry has made an unprecedented ascension in the ranks of the

Premier Delta flight school, carrying on his family’s legacy. What he
finds there are unexpected friendships, perilous challenges, and

with what keeps you on the ground.(150k, Pilot!Harry and Louis)

So Darling, Just Say You’ll Stay Right by My Side
: Harry is visibly buzzing with excitement as they get into the
police car, and Louis laughs, reaches out to put a hand on Harry’s knee
and try and calm him a bit. “Relax, McClane, we’re just stopping in on a
few of the local businesses to say hello. No need to sit with one
finger on the trigger.”“I don’t think you’ll need to worry about
me being trigger-happy, Lou,” Harry says with another one of his
megawatt grins, patting the water pistol holstered by his hip.[AU

Naked & Proud
The town itself is tiny, as evidenced by the ten minutes it’s taken
Louis to drive the entire thing. There’s not a single recognisable
brand in sight—no Tesco or McDonald’s or even a bloody Starbucks. Lining
the streets instead are mom and pop stores with names like ‘Jerry’s
Burgers’ and ‘The Market Basket’ and…“'Naked & Proud?‘” Louis almost slams on the brakes at the
outlandish sign, the name written in a seemingly innocent font, words
curved around a large cartoon peach. He can’t help turning into the
carpark, easing the car into a spot next to a beat up truck.He isn’t sure what to make of it. Surely it isn’t a strip joint or
sex shop, not with the families and little old ladies going in and out
of the establishment. Some kind of nudist hangout, perhaps?And, oh, God. Did Louis’ mother accidentally send him to live in a nudist colony?
In which Harry runs an organic store, not a nudist colony, and Louis doesn’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed. (18k, organic store owner Harry)

fill my little world right up
: When the doorbell to his flat rings and Harry walks to the door
irritated and bored, he definitely doesn’t expect the repairman to be
so…fit. He has to keep his jaw from falling completely open when he
comes face to face with the man that’ll be in his house for the next
hour or so trying to fix his Netflix. And god, this is embarrassing. AU in which Harry’s Netflix isn’t working, and Louis comes over to fix it. Fluff ensues. (2k, Netflix fixer Louis)
I’ll Throw Away My Faith (Just To Keep You Safe) : AU. Harry Styles is an MI6 agent on a mission to find out who’s

it’s strange, making the choice to face his past—it almost feels like he’s heading for the sun straight on, like he’s screaming come on and burn me, i deserve it. when a solar flare is announced to end the world in twelve days, harry reunites with the people that he used to know better than the back of his own hand.
Harry’s in an internationally famous boyband with his three best mates, he gets laid on a pretty regular basis, and he’s headed to Australia in a week. He doesn’t need anything else, and he certainly doesn’t need a boyfriend. If this nice guy he met in a coffeeshop wants to date him, great—but that’s all it is. Right?
louis is a terrible poet and harry lives in the now and they have six weeks to fall in love but, really, it only takes six seconds. bookshop meets military meets summer romance au ft. marlboros, the backstreet boys, and underrated literary devices.
He’s completely drenched, not one millimetre of him not covered in rain, and the old sheepskin cover over the seat is probably going to stink afterwards from the damp. But even with what seems to be a constant tremor shaking his body, brown hair plastered to his forehead, and a blue tinge to his skin, he’s still probably the most gorgeous person that Harry has ever seen. Or, Harry picks up a hitchhiker in Oxford, and it’s a long ride to Glasgow.
Harry smiles. He’s only known Louis for about two hours, knows nothing about him past his first name, but he’s nice and sarcastic and helpful and so, so pretty. And Harry’s still got a few days left in Barcelona, and he thinks he wouldn’t mind spending them with Louis. Also known as, Harry takes the summer before uni to travel Europe and meets Louis in Barcelona, and they end up traveling together.

The other boys are around too: caddy!Niall provides victory pints, Liam is Louis’s Very Serious co-anchor, and poor Zayn just gets his face drawn on.
Louis is used to having normal problems: moving to a new city, trying to direct a gay retelling of The Tempest, keeping Niall away from the actors’ catering. Theatre ghost should not be on that list. Obscenely attractive theatre ghost should definitely not be on that list. AU in which Louis is a director at the Globe Theatre and Harry is the unconventional ghost that haunts it.
they’ve still got all the money in the world, all the big nights and bigger houses, all the people at their doors with singles and album deals and promises of more, they still have all of that, and they will forever. the only thing they’ve burnt through is each other. or, two years after the band, harry and louis bump into each other for the first time.
“You do matter,” he says, roughly. “You matter so much, and you’re not just a computer, because you’re Hazza, and you’re mine, and it doesn’t matter what they say because I think you’re the best person I’ve ever known and I’d be honored to serve with you and - ” Harry tosses the memory drive aside and then throws his arms around Louis and drags him down on top of him, burying his face in Louis’ neck. Louis can feel Harry’s forehead against his false pulse, and hear the quiet sobbing noises he’s making under his ear. or: Louis and Harry are androids, Nick developed them with independent emotions, and they get much more than they bargained for with them.
Inception-inspired AU. Louis Tomlinson is the most respected and skilled extractor in the dream-sharing business; together he and his point man Zayn have been hired countless times to steal hundreds of valuable secrets straight from the minds of CEOs and politicians. One day, a mysterious and wealthy client contacts Louis and Zayn, offering them triple their normal rate in exchange for successfully completing a job that other extracting teams have deemed “impossible.” The one catch is that this client wants the very best - so he’s decided to team Louis’ skills up with those of Louis’ most hated rival, another highly-respected extractor named Harry Styles. Can Louis and Harry work together to complete the job and get the payout, or will they lose their minds along the way?

But he’s also Harry’s best friend, and despite everything, despite all the fuck-ups and the plot twists and everything just not playing out the way it should, he’d still rather be stuck in this situation with Louis than any of the other boys. He’s got Harry’s back, and in a weird, abstract way, he knows they’ll be able to get out of this situation, together.
Harry sighs. “We’re going,” he says resignedly, his shoulders slumping.
Oh well. There are definitely worse ways to spend the weekend than pretending to be engaged to his best friend.
