    Summary

    They couldn’t come back together after six years apart and tell themselves that this was love that they were making.
    Not with all that radio silence.
    Harry tried to keep it all down, lodged under the lump in his throat. He needed something to focus on, something to keep him out of his thoughts, so that he could go along with this because he didn’t want Louis to take his hands off him.
    He didn’t want that to happen.
    But. But he needed it to.
    “Wait,” Harry coughed out, his voice trembling, “Stop.”
    Louis looked up at him with wide eyes.
    “I— I need to stop,” Harry confessed, trying desperately to keep his voice straight.
    “What is it?” Louis asked, full of concern.
    “I can’t do this. I— I can’t play along. You left me and I need answers, Louis.”
    His voice caught on the end of his name.

    AKA: Harry is a journalist that goes to Lake Tekapo, New Zealand, to look into a girl’s disappearance after a year of no movement from police. What he finds instead is his ex boyfriend Louis, who, six years earlier, ghosted him after five months of dating in university. A story of trauma, secrets, and the power of finally letting people in.

    Summary

    “I hate frats,” Louis repeats for what feels like the millionth time.

    “Yes, I’ve heard, once or twice or every day for the past three years,” Liam says. His careful tone reminds Louis of how his mom always sounds when one of his siblings is on the brink of a tantrum.

    Louis glances speculatively at Liam’s frat brothers, who are still huddled together and chatting, with the exception of the one who’s looking in Louis’ direction. Maybe Louis shouldn’t rule out a tantrum. While making a scene wouldn’t actually free him from fraternity nonsense in the future, it would at least be entertaining.

    AU where Louis hates fraternities and would never be into a frat boy. And one of these things is definitely not a lie.

    Summary

    Louis thought it would feel different once he got to LA. He knew it was best for him; a fresh start as far away as he could get. But when the plane touched down and he stepped out into the hot air around LAX, Louis felt exactly the same.

     

    There's still a hole in his chest where his heart used to be; ripped away even after trying for so many years to keep it from happening. He knows it's not all his fault, not by a mile, but it doesn't stop him from blaming himself for it all going wrong.

     

    If he'd just stayed strong, if he'd said no when he said yes, maybe everything would be different.

     

    Or, Harry has been trying to convince Louis to date him for years, but Louis has always been wary of Harry’s fairly obvious commitment issues. Louis eventually gives him a chance, opening his heart up to the one thing he fears.

    Summary

    Louis can’t begin to understand how he’s always this close and still can’t manage to make Harry his. He stands up and gets another beer.
     
    AU. Louis studies astronomy; Harry studies Louis. They spend their summers on the water and it shouldn't be complicated (spoiler: it is).

    Summary

    There aren’t many things that make Harry Styles nervous. He’s spent the past couple of years on and off various stages, filled with screaming fans, all chanting his name, loud and adoring. He’s done countless interviews, some even on live, national television, never faltering over his words, answers meticulously planned out, smooth and steady. He’s signed countless autographs, taken just as many photos, and even when he sat in his label’s studio, waiting to see how high up on the charts his single made it, he didn’t feel uneasy or uncomfortable. It’s all been unbelievably fun. No, there aren’t many things that make Harry Styles nervous.

    Enter Louis Tomlinson.
