    Summary

    Zayn's been a little (a lot) in love with Liam for so long now that he doesn't even really think about it anymore. It's just a constant hum in his veins, and he's fine with it he swears, even though Liam has no idea. But then a certain word slips out of his mouth, and well things change.

    Summary

    The kiss couldn’t have lasted more than a second or two, and half of Louis’ mind was focused on bringing her guitar back around to the front without maiming anyone with it, but she was fairly certain it was the best kiss of her life - or at the very least, the best stage kiss of her life. Most of the girls she kissed on stage let her do it for the few seconds of fame, or as something to laugh at later, their lips stiff and emotionless, but this one felt more like a kiss than an act. The girl opened up to her immediately, swiping her tongue over Louis’ bottom lip so quick she almost missed it, her fingers wrapping around Louis’ elbow and pulling her closer even as she was pulled back by the end of Liam’s drum solo. Louis scrambled to press her fingers back into the strings of her guitar, fumbling with her pick when she saw the girl lick her own lips, flushed face darkening.

    In which Louis is in love with two girls she doesn't know - one she's never met and one she kissed upon first sight - and it takes a lot of zines and weed and Bugles for her to figure it all out.

    Summary

    The clock really wants him to touch it. Louis can tell.

    The glass feels strange under his hand, softer than glass should feel. He pushes himself into a stand and reaches as high as he can. The second hand grazes his fingers as it passes, tick tick ticking on its way to the next minute.

    He pushes the hand backwards—just ten seconds or so.

    Tick.

    Tick.

    Tick.

    Louis sits in front of the clock.

     
    There's a boy, and he grows up with a clock that can turn back time.

    His name is Louis.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when things are messy and they have more than a few weeks apart, they need the reminder. It’s comforting to have stars to map your course by.

    Summary

    Louis stares for a moment before some primal sympathetic force in him activates. He has to help this boy. He can hardly walk, and he seems so young (yet ageless, beyond age, like a sea turtle or a parrot or a tree or something else odd and magical), and on top of all that, he has body glitter clinging to his skin, like that roll-on stuff his sisters used to use as preteens, only pink-gold and twice as thick. It’s, like, professional grade. He’s also wearing grass- and dirt-stained pink silk women’s underwear, so maybe he’s from London. Maybe he’s a drag queen who crawled all the way from a nightclub in Soho just to save Louis from his horribly mundane and woefully heterosexual neighbours out here in the middle of nowhere.

    ---

    or, Harry’s a clumsy unicorn who accidentally stomps on a witch’s garden and is turned into a human as punishment, so he wanders into a nearby village covered in glitter, still figuring out how to walk on two feet, and meets the fairy-tale-fine Louis, who has to teach him how to live as a human and stop him from eating soap.
