"The sun warmed their skin, dried any and all remnants of Louis' tears, made Harry's curly hair glow. The sounds of the city below seemed to disappear; it was just them, overlooking everything, the only two people in the world who understood each other."
in which louis is a little bit empty, harry is a little bit new to all this, and, coincidentally, they're both just about as deaf as two lonely teenagers can be.
“I...I need time. But for now...I can’t. I can’t do it. I’m sorry, Harry.”
The line goes dead, right along with a the piece of Harry’s soul Louis has held safe and sound since he first kissed him, beneath a quiet moon and two single bright, twinkling stars in the front door threshold of the X Factor House.
Stars don’t live forever. That’s the first thing Harry thinks.
But I still love him.
That’s the second.
or the canon compliant story of how love you goodbye was really written.
“Harry Styles,” Nameless Boy who now has a name says. Louis is too busy having an internal crisis to realize the boy has just introduced himself as Harry Styles. Harry Styles, only son of Des Styles, PhD, Dean of Harvard Medical School. Harry Styles, known by everyone and their grandmother. Harry Styles, star rower. Harry Styles, youngest enrolled student in graduate school at Harvard University.
Oh my god, Louis thinks, mortified. I just slept with Harry Styles.
As he reaches out tentatively to shake the boy’s hand, another thought hits him.
Oh my god. Harry Styles is gay.
louis tomlinson, college dropout, up and coming dj, and gay activist, is the notorious owner of exclusive underground gay club, adrenaline.
harry styles, med student by day, partier by night, child prodigy and seemingly heterosexual son of harvard professors, is the youngest and arguably the smartest student at harvard medical school.
or: a one night stand wasn't supposed to become the greatest love story of the 21st century.
By the time you read this I’ll be dead. Here’s how I think it’s gonna to happen. Your mum - whoever they are and I’m sure they’ll be a smashing person - will read this letter, realize I quoted a very old and niche video, and teleport to my exact location and strangle me.
I know sense of humor is not genetic but if it was I hope you’d get mine. I hope you don’t get my nose - it’s pretty big, and if you get my height I hope your mum evened it out with some grace and coordination so you didn’t spend puberty impersonating Bambi on ice. I’ve finally grown into it but it took awhile and I once almost fell into a bonfire because of it. Maybe I’ll tell you about it when we meet up!
Please know that if you decide to reach out to me I will be receptive, so don’t let that cause you any anxiety. I hope that your life has been good so far. I’m sure your mum (and dad or other mum or other parenting figure) loved you with everything they are.
P.S. Then two cops will read this letter and shoot each other.
AKA Louis conceives a child from an anonymous donor and Harry’s the midwife.

Harry is kind of a dork and Louis is kind of an asshole, and Louis swears this is not going to be like High School Musical, but. Then that stupid pool party happens.
