    Summary

    “Also, in case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite the narcissistic type, and I didn’t want that cute guy to have a bad opinion of me for the rest of his life.”
    “Who, me?” Zayn bats his lashes jokingly, ignoring the fact that his heart skipped a beat at Louis’ words.
    “Yeah, you. So, shall we go?”
    Louis drops what remains of his cigarette on the floor and steps on it to light it off. Meanwhile, Zayn makes a reckless decision.
    “Aright. Lead the way, De Niro.”

    Or: A strangers to lovers AU where Louis is an actor, Zayn is a writer (among other things), and they meet each other literally by accident in NYC, just as the world is about to turn upside down.

    Summary

    Oliver Twist, Rent, Footloose, Billy Elliot, Mamma Mia ... Just a few of the musicals that are already on the thirty-year-old young director's resume, Louis Tomlinson. Although he started his career at just twenty-two years in London's underground theaters, Louis finally achieved his long-awaited dream of directing a Broadway play only now. An unprecedented play that came from the hand of screenwriter Zayn Malik and composer Niall Horan, called Fireproof. The musical is perfect; has romance, comedy, tragedy. Everything you can expect from a future Tony Award winner.

    There's only one catch: If Louis doesn't die of stress during the production because of Simon Cowell's greed, a certain choreographer/actor is sure to give him a heart attack.

    ** This fic was inspired by the TV Show called Smash **
    *** The musical will be entirely assembled with songs from One Direction ***

    Summary

    He remembers an intensity of feelings but not a lot of words.  He recalls drunken laughter with mates, sunny days and shy smiles, shit weed and tattoo parlours, cold sheets and burning touches.  Harry recalls a fantasy where real life took a backseat, where all that mattered was that they were young and alive.

     

     

    At some point, Harry got scared.  He needed something he could hold on to, something he could be sure of.  But the more he dug for reassurance, the more Zayn clammed up.

    And the more they f*cked.

    Maybe Zayn saved his words for his books when he should have spoken them aloud.  Maybe Harry should have ended it better instead of running away like a coward.

    Then again, maybe he should just stop dwelling on the past.


    Or the one where Harry gets cold feet.  Three years later, Harry’s an editor and Zayn is the new writer he’s been assigned to work with.  

    They have a lot more than just a book to work out.

    Summary

    "Harry runs a frustrated hand through his long locks, barely visible in this creaky hallway, 'You’ve never even told us what this is all about, why you and Liam, your best mate in the entire world, broke the band apart with one fight. We’ve respected your privacy, Zayn, but it’s been two years. We either deserve to know, or you need to move on. It’s not healthy how much you’re still holding onto this hatred for him.'

    Zayn laughs a disturbing sounding laugh. He hasn’t talked about this in twenty-two months and he’s not about to start now, 'Hatred’s only part of it. Let’s just say I’ve never been more disappointed in someone in my life than Liam Payne.'”

    Summary

    Louis follows his gaze, his face breaking out into a knowing smirk, “I see”, he drawls, “he looks like he’s been up for three days trying to finish final papers and study for exams, and is surviving off coffee, red bull, and desperation.”

    Zayn chuckles, because that is a scarily accurate description, and for all he knows, that’s exactly what’s been happening.

    “I’m into it”, Louis says, still looking at the boy, although his stare is much more appreciative than it was before, which makes Zayn in turn see red.

    “Back off bro”, Zayn growls, much more forcefully than he had intended, but seriously, Louis needs to back off, Zayn saw him first.

     

     

    Or: the one where Zayn is an aspiring novelist and Liam is the overworked music student that Zayn accidentally turns into his very own manic pixie dream girl before discovering the real thing is much better.

    Summary

    — Na tę chwilę oprócz klapsów chciałbym spróbować jeszcze oddania ci kontroli. W sensie, żebyś mówił mi, co mam robić, kiedy mogę dojść i, no nie wiem, chwalił mnie, kiedy zrobię coś dobrze? — Wzrusza bezradnie ramionami. — Nie wiem jeszcze, jak do tego podejdę w prawdziwym życiu, ale w mojej głowie to wydaje mi się ważnym elementem. Jeśli to nie będzie działać, to cię o tym powiadomię. Krępowanie ruchów ciała, to również jest coś, czego chciałbym spróbować. Um, co jeszcze… chciałbym mówić do ciebie sir? — stwierdza pytająco i przełyka ciężko ślinę. — I, och, duszenie. W sensie ręka zaciśnięta na moim gardle albo twarz wciśnięta w poduszkę.

    Summary

    “Liam,” Zayn said, his voice caught in his throat, making the name coming out of his lips much raspier than usual. Finally, Liam looked at him.
    “I act like I don't fucking care, cause I'm so fucking scared, I'm only a fool for you and maybe you're too good for me.”
    “Liam,” Zayn repeated. “stop the car.” As soon as they were in park, Zayn unbuckled his seat belt and crawled over the console and into Liam’s lap as if his life depended on it, wasting zero time. Liam’s breath hitched in his throat at the expeditious move.
    Zayn closed his eyes before leaning in to seal their lips together, it’s only fitting that he sees stars. With a shaky breath, Zayn whispers, “This is what I meant by ‘to be continued’.” And closed the space between the two for the second time that night.

    Or the one where Zayn and Liam are in a school play together and gradually develop feelings for one another, but act like they don't until they do.
