Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson | Alternate Universe: Teachers, Fluff and Smut, Semi-Established Relationship | 38k

They’ve discussed it a few times - the boyfriend thing. It’s not like it’s some forbidden, horrific, abandon hope all ye who talk about furthering the relationship sort of subject. They’re mature adults. They’re in tune with their feelings, their hearts’ desires, the way those butterflies swoop in their bellies whenever they so much as hold each other’s hands. They like each other. A lot. It’s mutual, they know. But for now, they’re just content to enjoy the simplicity of what they have, and what they have is great.

When dating in secret stops being enough, then they’ll discuss that too.

Or, the one where Harry teaches Sex Ed and sneaks around with the drama teacher, and doesn’t realize how out of tune he is with his true feelings until everyone else figures it out for him.

my favorite fics [2/?]

These Inconvenient Fireworks (.pdf)

Runner on Third 39k

The AU where Louis and Harry were best friends growing up, but lost touch after Harry moved away. Ten years later, Harry has moved back to town, but he and Louis don’t pick up where they left off.

You Really Got Me Now 6k

Louis is the best older brother anyone could ask for. He knows this because he’s agreed to help chaperone his younger sister’s school trip to Rome. As it turns out, Italy is full of surprises. Fizzy’s Italian teacher is surprisingly hot, Rome is surprisingly interesting, and Louis is surprisingly falling in love with more than just the city.

Dance Me (to the End of Love) 19k

You would think that it’s a simple process - you meet, you fall in love, you get married. But when you add one lawyer and one overly-competitive high school teacher to that equation, it’s no longer a straight line from beginning to end. Or the story of how a simple proposal becomes a competition where no one loses in the end.

+more fics


Can I just say how much I adore this scene? Since he fled from Fennmont and had to give up his life as a med student, Jude’s been unsure what to do, basically following Milla around because he had nowhere else to go to. Even before that…With his parents being the way they are, he probably never felt proud of himself or like he had many remarkable traits. He just did what was expected from him. Even when he was chosen to assist Professor Haus, the opportunity was taken away from him immediatly. And yet here he is; his intelligence and ability to analyze a situation in a pressuring moment is the key to success. Alvin immediatly listens to him and despite Jude voicing his idea with conviction, he is completely surprised when Alvin agrees to it without any doubt. This is probably the first time he took the lead and acknowledges there are people who acknowledge and count on him and his talents.

I opened my eyes but quickly closed them back shut as I let out a groan.

The sunlight that stared back at me was an instant reminder that it was a new day. I squeezed my eyes tightly together as I could feel them filling up with water. Since the day I came home from the hospital I have been glued to my bed. I felt like my entire soul was gone, I was physically here but not mentally. Every single day I just laid here and cried until my eyes hurt. This had became my life for the pass two months. Every day I dreamed about what Gummy Bear would have looked like. I wondered how his little laugh would sound or how it would feel when his tiny little fingers would hold on to mine. What I wouldn’t give to feel him kicking me like a soccer player like he did almost everyday. I pulled myself out of bed to take a much needed shower which I hoped would make me feel better but deep down inside I knew it wouldn’t.

As I looked over at my night stand I saw a cup of strawberries, a Starbucks iced coffee, and a note.

It was from Nazar, he let me know he had to run out and would be back soon. I knew when he didn’t mention exactly what he had to run out for it was because it had something to do with the kids. Ever since we lost Bear he tried to avoid bringing up Jaz and Major around me. I knew deep down it was because their mother was the cause behind this shit happening to me. The thought of her made my blood boil. I was instantly so mad it felt like you could see steam coming from my fucking head.

I continued on to my bathroom to take my shower so I could calm down.

After I was finished I made my way to Bear’s room like I did everyday.

I looked at the paint swatches Bee and I had painted before I took a seat on the floor. I tried to keep myself together but I couldn’t as I broke down crying.

I let out a gut wrenching scream as I cried so hard it felt like I was going to throw up. I stayed this way for over 25 minutes until I could somewhat calm myself down. 15 minutes later I heard my doorbell but didn’t bother to move.

I continued to sit there with tears running down my face. The person at my door would not lay off my bell but I didn’t care. I had a good idea that it was probably Bee but I wasn’t in the mood today at all for any visitors. She came by to see me everyday but Nazar was always here to let her in. After a few more minutes the door bell stopped.

As I continued to cry I knew I couldn’t do this anymore. Being here in this house was killing me on the inside. Nazar brought up moving a few days after I came home from the hospital but I never gave him an answer. Deep down it was because I knew us moving wouldn’t fix anything. I knew what I needed and it couldn’t be done with Nazar. I needed time to be alone to heal for myself. I loved Nazar and would do anything for him but I couldn’t be here with him anymore. Just Jaz and Major alone was a constant reminder of what they mother had done to me. Lord knows how much I love those kids but I didn’t want to start to turn mean against them because of their fucked up ass mother. In the space I am in that was liable to start to happen. It hurt me like shit just to think about Nazar and I not being together but I knew it was what I needed to do in order to get back to that happy place with myself again. I wiped my tears as I got up to start packing as much things as I could while hoping Nazar wouldn’t come back before I was finish.

Two hours later I was done as I headed back in the house to write Nazar a letter before I left.

After I was finished I slipped my engagement ring off and placed it on the counter. I grabbed my bag as I tried to hold back the tears that were now taking over my eyes. I was literally walking away from the life I had grown to love for the pass two years.


It was after 9:00 at night when I pulled up into my driveway and right away I noticed NaNa’s truck was gone. I had tried calling her several times throughout the day but she never answered. Lyyn had called and told me she stopped by earlier but NaNa wouldn’t answer the door for her. Lyyn knew she was home because both of her cars were still in the driveway. I activated my car voice call and told it to call her. This time I was met with her voicemail, I pressed end and let out a deep breathe as I got out. When I made it through the door I headed to the kitchen to put down the food I had picked up for dinner. 

As I turned the corner NaNa’s ring and a piece of paper caught my attention.

Yo what the fuck.

I said to myself as I put the bag down and picked up what was a letter.

Nazar………………………….. I don’t even know how to start this shit off. I feel hella fucked up for leaving you like this with a letter. Nazar I love you with every inch of my heart know that but I can’t do this anymore. I can’t continue on like this. Everyday I open my eyes I feel like I’m dying on the inside and no matter how many tears I shed it doesn’t make me feel better, it doesn’t bring Bear back. I need time to myself and to heal. As much as I wish I could, I can’t do this and build with you together. When you asked me about moving I knew then deep down inside that moving wasn’t the answer, it wouldn’t fix this. I know you’re going to be mad with me for not saying anything but I couldn’t bring myself to tell you. I feel like you feel like the woman you fell in love with is floating away. You don’t have to tell me, I see it in your eyes everyday as you watch me sink in our bed. Please don’t try to pursue me Nazar. I don’t know where this is going to lead us but I can only hope it’s somewhere good in the future. If it happens to not be and you find somebody new, that’s okay. No matter what happens please know I will never forget you and will always love you.                                                                                  

I reread her letter 3 times and each time I got more pissed off. I took a seat at the island as a single tear ran down my face.

My mind raced as I sat silent for what seemed like hours. For two fucking months I begged her to talk to me. I fucking begged her to tell me how she was feeling and not fucking once did she say this shit to me. I’m hurting just like she’s hurting but I wouldn’t dare walk away from her, that shit never even crossed my mind. It fucked me up to know she felt like she was dying on the inside and she couldn’t get through this with me. In the two years Natalia and I have been together I have given her nothing short of my all. I have never loved another woman outside of my mother the way I loved Natalia and it pissed me off how she just walked away like we were not in this together. It kills me everyday just to walk pass Bear’s room door and know he will never be coming home. My chest heaved up and down as all the anger and emotions I had pent up came to surface. In one swift motion I knocked everything off the counter on to the floor.

I grabbed a bottle of Hennessy from the cabinet and knocked half of it back.

I welcomed the burning sensation as it moved down from my chest and started to warm my body. Everything in the house reminded me of Natalia. The warm vanilla scent she loved filled my nose as if she was standing right in front of me. Some of her shoes and handbags were still spread throughout the house.

I leaned back against the wall not realizing I was pressing against the iPad that controlled everything in the house until the fire place lit up and the stereo started playing.

It just so happened to be one of Natalie’s favorite songs by Anthony Hamilton that was playing. The more I listened to the words the more the shit was describing my life at the moment. Out of nowhere I hurled the bottle at the stereo making it hit the floor and the glass shatter.

I slid down to the floor, I could now hear Natalia’s screams echoing through my head.

The gut wrenching screams and cries she let out after she found out Bear didn’t make it would forever be in my head. Everybody in the hospital room that night was at a loss for words. She kept asking her mother why, why did it have to be her. Not even Ms. Italy could find the words to say as she climbed into her hospital bed and held her until she fell asleep. Since Bear was stillborn we were offered by the hospital for them to bury him but I wasn’t having it. I made sure to give Bear the proper burial and had a beautiful headstone made for him. Natalia didn’t want to see Bear but I did have the hospital take pictures in case she ever changed her mind. She had said she rather wonder what Bear would have looked like verses seeing him laying there lifeless. Instantly the photos of Bear’s tiny little body laying there took over my head and all I could see was red. I had been looking high and fucking low for Taysha’s ass and it was like this bitch had skipped off the face of the fucking earth. I had never hated a bitch in my entire life the way I hated Taysha. I couldn’t even fathom that this bitch was my kids mother. Like what the fuck was I on when I slept with her ass. I couldn’t wait for the moment when I found her and put a bullet through this bitch skull. Enraged I started knocking and pushing over anything I could get my hands on.

Next think I knew in one swift motion I was punching a hole in the wall before I grabbed my keys and left back out.
