    Summary

    "You don't mind I kissed you?" Louis asked, both of his hands playing with Harry's curls and Harry could only imagine what was going through Louis' mind right now, what kind of bullshit his brain was concocting, what kind of absolute nonsense was overwhelming his pretty head.

    Harry hummed a low hum and rubbed Louis' back with a light touch of his fingernails, earning a grateful hum from Louis in return and he smiled before pressing his lips to Louis' cheek, feeling the skin burn up instantly beneath his lips. "Fuck no."

     

    Or, the one where Louis and Harry met at a band contest and became boyfriends

    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

    “No, no, Mom! It's all okay, don't worry, really. They probably just forgot and, uhm, I'll text them okay? I will! And next year's gonna be better, I, it's... it's okay”.
     

    His mother had probably known that he was lying, had known that his “friends” hadn't just forgotten but had consciously decided to ignore him. To not come to his sixteenth birthday party.
     

    It had been a mess, the smile on his mother's face slowly fading as time ticked by, even though she must have known all along – just as well as Liam had.
    Not that there hadn't been a tiny spark of hope inside of him, wishing there would at least be one person to care enough about him.

     

    But obviously there wasn't.

     

    Or

    No one attends Liam's party for his sixteenth birthday but Zayn is there to fix it.
