    Summary

    The wait isn’t long before something starts rustling in the bushes. Harry takes aim, squeezes the trigger, body moving unconsciously. They’re motions he’s done a thousand times before, and his body knows how to do it without the input of his brain now. It’s what makes him such a good shot.

    He misses. The shot misses.

    Something howls in the woods, a pretty clear indication that Harry hit it, but there’s no telltale sounds of a big body dropping, no animal charging out at him to take him out before he can finish the job.

    Something does turn and run, though. “Fuck,” Harry spits out, scrambling to his feet and slinging the rifle back over his shoulder, giving chase. He’s not going to lose this hunt.

    The trail of blood goes on longer than Harry thought it would. He doesn’t know how long he runs for, but his muscles are burning, chest heaving with exertion, until the trail just - goes dead. No more blood, just like that.

    “Fuck,” Harry says.

    Summary

    On rainy days, Anne built Harry and Louis blanket forts in the family room and they’d spend hours inside, talking and laughing and reading stacks of books by torchlight. In the darkness, their silhouettes were stitched to the sheets of the brightly-lit tent like cameos in a golden locket. Part of her wished she could keep them that way forever, wished they would be children forever, their sun-browned skin smelling of salt, their little arms tight around her neck as they pulled her into a hug.

    Summary

    Harry has dreamed of a world outside the tiny village of Holmes Chapel for as long as he can remember... a world full of magic and adventure and true love.
    It was nothing but a childhood dream, however, until an old family friend comes bearing word of a plot against Harry's life and a very dangerous truth: Harry is the rightful heir to the crown and must embark on a perilous quest to reclaim his throne from the ruthless would-be King Simon.
    But in the end Harry will find himself fighting for more than a crown, and on the verge of losing something much more precious than his sovereign power.
    Because magic might be real, but life is not a fairy tale, and Harry is a prince up against a very big dragon.

    Or: a medieval fantasy AU in which Harry is a prince in disguise and Louis is the king of the faeries.

    Summary

    “How do you take it?” Harry asked, pouring tea into a cup.

    “Just a dash of milk, please,” Louis cast a look over the small table, filled to capacity. “They’re very fond of you.”

    Harry ducked his head, grinning. “They’re trying to impress you.”

    Louis smiled, shaking his head. “Why would they want to do that?” he asked as he took the cup Harry passed to him, their fingers brushing for an instant.

    “Empathy,” Harry said under his breath.

    --

    A Belle Époque AU set (mostly) in Paris in which Harry is a struggling artist, in more ways than one, and Louis is a successful theatre critic and a failed writer, more or less.
