    Summary

    A series of moments of Harry and Louis' relationship through the years, from the very beginning to the present, through the perspective of those around them. It's beautiful and it's brutal, it's awe-inspiring and it's awful - it is what it is.

    ~*~

    "He’s special, Gem," Harry says. "He’s different. Different from anyone else I’ve ever known. I think-”

    Gemma holds up a hand. “Slow down, buddy,” she says. “You’ve only known him a few months.”

    “I know,” Harry says again, his fingers tugging at the designs embroidered in the blanket. “But it’s still true.”

    Gemma studies him for a long moment. It’s interesting, she thinks. She’s never seen him like this -– not really. He’s almost glowing, a smile constantly either present or hiding just below the surface, and while it could just be the band as a whole making him so happy, she somehow doesn’t think so.

    Summary

    “I can’t wait to kiss you,” he says, softly. “With, like, tongue.”

    Louis closes his eyes. This afternoon on the train in, he would never have guessed that at the end of the night he’d have Harry Styles- the Harry Styles- beside him, begging to be kissed. With tongue. Jesus Christ.

    Summary

    It was the 18th July 2017 - on that they all agreed. They were scattered around the globe all minding their own business or more precisely their solo careers with the band being just a label they cannot shake off and a distant memory though it wasn't that long ago.
    Next time they open their eyes it is the 18th July 2010 - the first day of the seventh season of X Factor UK's Bootcamp. All of them - yes, all five of them - wake up in the Wembley Arena in London before the judges arrived. When nothing works and they are stuck seven years in the past where they are just Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zain (this time with an I instead of Y), teenagers with big dreams, they have to decide what track will they take this time.
    Is One Direction fated to exist or are the boys going to pursuit solo careers now instead? Can they fix past mistakes or will everything fall apart? What is the key to success and fame? Can they do it again?
    A story of second chances, new paths and five boys who were thrown together seven years ago, but learned to work together to achieve their goals.

    Summary

    Harry came from one of the most powerful lines of fire mages in the country. He was supposed to be a natural at magic, a prodigy, even.

    But instead he was in the X-Factor contestant house kitchen at two in the morning, wearing only his pants, and he had just set the stove on fire while making snacks for his bandmates and the boy he was in love with.

    Or, just another X Factor fic featuring dumb boys with dumber crushes, growing pains, random fires, and a dragon.

    Summary

    “You’re telling the truth,” Louis whispers.

    “Of course I’m telling the truth!” Harry doesn’t even care that he sounds exasperated.

    “Oh my god.” Louis grabs the wall behind him as if looking for support. His body slides down against it until he’s sitting crouched on the floor.

    He mumbles something but Harry can’t really figure out what it is. He crouches down, and looks desperately at the breaking boy in front of him.

    “You’re telling the truth,” Louis whispers. “You were not supposed to–”

    “I was not supposed to do what? Tell me please,” Harry urges, taking Louis’ hands gently in his.

    Summary

    Prince Louis has it all. He's wealthy, privileged, famous, and handsome, with a loving family and a world of opportunities. There's only one problem: he isn't actually the queen's son.

    Harry and Niall Horan don't have much, but they have a dream: to win the X Factor and achieve something more than their normal middle-class life.

    Two dreams collide and two very different paths come together when Louis requests to meet with Harry after seeing him on the X Factor.

    Summary

    “Fuck,” Harry mumbles, shuffling. “You won’t give me shit for it? It’s sorta weird.”

    “No,” Louis breathes. “Promise.”

    “Okay. I just...fuck, I can’t believe I’m telling you this,” Harry whimpers, and he must be blushing because Louis can feel waves of heat coming off him, his embarrassment a hot, palpable thing. “So, like…I love rimming videos. Nothing makes me come harder,” he admits, covering his face with his hands so his voice comes out muffled and strangled.

    It takes Louis a few seconds to process, to mentally rifle through his Pornhub search history and remember what rimming even is; Harry has him so stupid he can’t keep stuff straight. His ears ring, and then it hits him, and, oh, fuck. His stomach turns and tightens so quickly he’s gasping, an audible and shameful scrape of air in the dark. “You…really?” he chokes out.

    ---

    Or, Harry is convinced he's never gonna be able to try his favorite porn fantasy on a real boy, and Louis offers to remedy this.

    Summary

    Harry’s only sixteen, it shows right now, and Louis wants…he wants so many things. He wants to taste the faint, sugary ghost of lip gloss, he wants to cup Harry’s face between his palms and swipe the shimmery wet shadows from beneath his eyes. He wants to show him everything he knows, even though he doesn’t know anything about this, about kissing boys or flirting with them or doing their makeup or even showing them it’s okay to want to wear makeup in the first place. Still, Louis just wants, wants and wants and wants. It’s what Harry does to him.

    Summary

    261 – the longing for everything to turn out just like it does in that song.

    It was a conversation they would have dozens of times, over the years. Perhaps even hundreds. The details were different, the locations, the reasons, the voices, but it was at its heart the same conversation. And each time they reached the same conclusion.

    ~*~*~

    “Harry, I’ve never felt anything like this before." Louis shook his head. "I don’t know how to do this.”

    Harry smiled. “There isn’t any knowing,” he said. “That’s not how it works. You don’t know. You just feel. What do you feel?”

    He felt – so many things. Fear. Excitement. Longing. Uncertainty. “Too many things,” Louis said.

    “What do you want?” Harry asked him.

    Again, so many things. He wanted to kiss Harry. He wanted to win X Factor. He wanted to talk to his mum and ask her what he should do. “I want everything,” Louis said at last. “I just don’t know if I can have it.”
