Zayn knows what he’s saying, knows it’s more than what it sounds like, and he can see that Liam hears it too, in the gaps between his words. Zayn didn’t mean for it to happen like this, to get stuck like a scratched record on one person, but it’s like there’s a magnet in his chest that pulls him back to Liam, even when he’s trying to run in the opposite direction. And he’s never been that guy, always been able to detach himself from his feelings and move on when things get too serious, so why, when Liam feels like the most serious thing to happen in his life, can he not cut his ties and walk away?
- These Rays Of Light Begin To Intersect
, by louella_deville: After Harry’s first experience of heartbreak, he creates a
break up bucket list that he gives himself a month to complete.
Shoplifting, Streaking, Spending too much money, and getting revenge are
just a few that Louis has agreed to help him out with, but the number
one item on the list makes Harry much too nervous to reveal.(Au.
Harry’s just gotten out of a suffocating relationship and to make
himself feel better, he enlists Louis on a bucket list mission of
Larry friends to lovers AU (20k): this one if fun ! great smut (bottom Louis), and funny relationship :)
- It’s Only A Beginningby sunsetmog : No, this year was not going better than last year, because last
year he was with his friends, and everything was okay, and it wasn’t
the case that every single last thing was crap. Last year he wasn’t the
stupid sixth former who’d failed his AS levels and had had to move
stupid schools to do them again.In which the only good thing in Louis’s life was the person he talked to on Tumblr every night.
Tumblr/High school AU (33k), with a sad Louis and some Tumblr
interactions. All about coming-out, first kiss, and no smutty at all :)

relationship. Harry is a musician who is all warmth and light.
Rebuilding a life takes time.

Uni AU (23k) , where Zayn and Liam can’t keep theirs hands off of them
but Zayn don’t do relationship. So it’s angsty of course. The smut is
amazing (and rough), and there’s the 2 PoV.
- Bigger Than Life
, by @hrrylouis : “Boybander Harry Styles spotted leaving West Hollywood joined hand in hand with new beau, Xander Ritz”His
heart drops in his chest as he scrolls down, ignoring the short
irrelevant article and looking desperately for a picture. Sure enough,
there’s pap shots of Harry and Xander, walking hand in hand, looking
drunk and cheerful and together.And that’s—that’s really not what Louis was expecting at all.
canon fic (48k). Oh god, it’s angsty. Like really painful. but well
written. And great smut. But painful. But so good. GOD (Zouis ! Lilo !
Tomlinshaw !! theirs friendships fucked me up) . (sorry, I just finished
it when I’m writing this so …)
- Watch Me Fall Down to Earth ,by @miladinstrawberry: A silver cloud had passed over the moon, and what little heavenly light

- An Infinity of Cliches and Me and You by
: What? You already kissed him before,” Niall reasons because he is not
the one who has to make out with the child version of his once best
friend/band mate. “I can’t do it,” Louis tells him
matter-of-factly, but there’s a fragile edge to his voice because Louis
knows he can’t not do it either. Niall rolls his eyes as if Louis is the
one being insane here. “You want to go home, don’t you?” “Well yeah,
Niall claps his hands together, and with a tone of finality he says,
“Just put the moves on Harry and we should be gone in a jiffy.” Or
the one where Louis is not in love with Harry, but the universe (and
Niall) seems to think he is: complete with superheroes, castles, and
cheesy teenage sing alongs.
Larry Canon/AUs fic (28k): OMG!
this fic is so crazy ! So basically this is Louis (and niall) lost
between some of different alternative universes, trying to come back to
reality. (and yes, one of this AU is a High School Musical AU and it’s
so funny). No smut at all. That’s so cute :) (thanks anon who linked me
- ‘Twas the night before Christmas (or, a visit from Harry)
, by Calliope001 : “It’s just… it all became too complicated, Lou. Trying to
hide all the time, lying to everyone. It just ruined everything. We
never just hung out anymore. There was always someone else involved,
someone keeping an eye on us or wondering what was going on. It was
never just us. And it was killing us both. That’s why I broke it off. This,” he gestured between them. “Whatever this is.”
“You care too much about what other people think,” Louis said. “You always have.”
Harry looked at Louis, his face softening, and he blew out his lips, arms falling to his side as he shrugged, his body deflated.
“I don’t wanna fight, Lou,” he said.
Louis shook his head. “Me neither.”
“Bed?” Harry asked, and Louis nodded as Harry turned to walk back to the house.
Or, where Louis and Harry reconnect over a special white Christmas.
Canon Christmas fic (11.6k) : Okaaaayyy. this fic is so great!! and OMG
the smut is amazing (bottom Harry). Like wow. BUT FAIR WARNING : don’t
try to read this if you’ve got a real trigger with alcohol and drugs
abuse. And when I say drugs, I don’t mean only some joints (there’s
too). “White Christmas” has never deserved its name more than with this
fic :D (and I found out this kinky thing and I’m not I’m gonna recover
of it tbh)(dear author , come talk to me in private pleaaase?)
simple truths of belongingLiam spends ten years building the career for himself that he’s always wanted, and spends the same span of time falling out of communication with the one person he can’t reason why he misses. They find each other, again, stumbling around each other for a moment until they fall together in new, unpredictable ways.
Out of Your LeagueZayn is a slightly pretentious Art student who has people falling for him left right and centre, until gorgeous Music student Liam Payne walks into his life and refuses to bow down.
A Ghost for Every SeasonOn June 15 2010, Philly PD is called to a crime scene. The victim is later identified as Liam Payne, age 22. He had been shot in the face and set alight. Despite a 9 month long investigation his killer was never found. On November 12, 2015, Liam’s credit card is used, resulting in his cold case being re-opened. Detective Zayn Malik is drawn to Liam Payne, the moment he opens Liam’s file and he soon becomes obsessed with solving his murder. In the dead of winter, a series of clues lead Zayn to a Northern Maine town where he makes a shocking discovery.
Just Let Me KnowZayn wakes up in a hospital, eyes blurry and head pounding, only for a doctor to tell him he’s lost two years of his life. And if that’s not awful enough, something’s different with Liam, off like something has changed, and Zayn doesn’t understand. Until he does. And then it’s somehow worse.
Hello AgainZayn and Liam breakup and the world is determined to bring them back together again.
My favourite bookThe thing he missed most was Zayn. All of him, from his cranky morning self to the wanton boy fucking down on Liam’s dick later that night (and sometimes in the afternoon as well). The one who could spout poetry like it was his native tongue and the one who could barely say anything when he was deeply upset. The one who wore fake glasses and felt at home in Liam’s clothes. The one who was mad for kids and shrieked at the sight of spiders.
I have waited oh, so long (please don’t tell me baby I was wrong)And It’s these simple things– the way Liam is so attentive, how he just knows how Zayn likes to wear his scarf and which pocket he stuffed his gloves, how even without words Liam still manages to show Zayn he cares– that makes Zayn love him so much. That make it so easy to put himself in this position over and over and over again. Without hesitation. Without a care that he’s just breaking his own heart.
The Way We DoZayn and Liam play on rival football teams, and it’s hate at first sight, in Zayn’s case at least.
Do Me WrongZayn knows what he’s saying, knows it’s more than what it sounds like, and he can see that Liam hears it too, in the gaps between his words. Zayn didn’t mean for it to happen like this, to get stuck like a scratched record on one person, but it’s like there’s a magnet in his chest that pulls him back to Liam, even when he’s trying to run in the opposite direction. And he’s never been that guy, always been able to detach himself from his feelings and move on when things get too serious, so why, when Liam feels like the most serious thing to happen in his life, can he not cut his ties and walk away?
