Fandoms: One Direction (Band), Zayn Malik (Musician)
4 Aug 2016
Five years ago, Liam and Zayn were best friends, but as they grew older, they drifted apart. Now Zayn is covered in tattoos and constantly has a cigarette between his fingers while Liam is a seemingly clean-cut All-American jock and one of the most popular guys at Bridgewater High School.
Junior year of high school, everything in their lives seems to be falling apart before their eyes. But when Zayn has to tutor Liam in English, they discover that, with the help of each other and their three friends, they may just be able to piece themselves back together.
(or the dark yet cliché American AU where Liam is a popular jock trying too hard to be perfect and Zayn is one-third badass and two-thirds lost.)
