    The explanation in chapter four of the platonic relationship between Harry and Louis makes so much sense to me.

    Summary

    Niall is a Chelsea midfielder recovering from major knee surgery. With luck, he should be back and better than ever next season, but for the summer he's basically housebound, and in the back of his mind he knows he might never play again. To liven up the monotony, he seeks out the services of Louis, a high-class hooker who's happy to make house calls. And although Niall's been with professionals in the past, he couldn't have expected the feelings he has for Louis, how quickly being with Louis starts to feel like being with a friend. Or more than a friend.

    Summary

    “Not messing with you,” Zayn answered earnestly. “I still don't understand how you don't see what I see.”

    “What do you see?”

    “So much.”

    Harry laughed but it was only because he knew he couldn't start crying at work. He was a professional now, damn it. “I see whole galaxies when I look at you, Zayn.”

     

    Harry's store is failing, his "open" relationship isn't going anywhere, and Harry is slowly destroying himself with self-doubt. Enter Zayn Malik, marketing consultant extraordinaire and the most remarkable person Harry has ever met.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Thoughts, right? This fic is full of thoughts that shouldn't be so revolutionary to me but are. Thoughts about privilege and rightness and success and how these are linked and reinforce each other. There's more in there, I know there is, but one concept at a time, and this is the one striking me hard right now.

    Summary

    The year is 1881 and if you’re alone in this world you might as well be dead, because starving dogs have no mercy.

    Or: Wherein Louis and Harry are on the opposite ends of the social ladder, but their paths still cross on the filthy streets Louis calls his home. The odds are staked against them from the beginning, and even more when Louis' past finally catches up with him.
