“Hi,” the boy says, leaning forward and resting his elbows on the counter, body language open in invitation. Niall half expects him to tip his chin up and bare his throat, but instead his smile grows wider, pulling crookedly at his mouth.

Running On Nothing But Hope - onewasturning - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Harry looks at the backs of their heads, Niall’s dark hair sticking up in tufts and Jesy’s pulled back and ready for war, and wonders who is of more danger to whom. There are animals there inside all of them. Predators. A wolf that he can feel underneath his skin even now searching for a means to break free.

By the time the trees part open to reveal a clearing, the sun has begun to set and all Harry can think of is the terror he knows he is capable of inflicting.

Or, as a newly bitten werewolf, Harry tries to find something to believe in while he loses everything, especially his sense of control.

Liam says ‘lou im in a mtng is this important.’

‘yes it’s sodding important NIALLS A WOLF.’ Louis types back furiously.

Harry’s checkmark finally lights up, followed a second later by ‘Sorry; who’s this?’

Zayn sends an eye-roll emoji, and Louis can’t help but echo it in real life as he responds ‘come off it youre not fooling anyone help me fix this HAROLD.’

‘harry doesnt have a whatsapp,’ Liam chimes in helpfully, just as Harry says, ‘I don’t have whatsapp.’

“Oh, for God’s sake!” Louis explodes. He takes a picture of Niall and sends it. ‘I AM SERIOUS STOP MESSING ABOUT’.

‘that could b any random wolf,’ Zayn says next, and Louis kicks him out of the group chat.

Louis is an angel who is just a little too bad to be good, Harry is a demon who is just a little too good to be bad, and they're both a little too in love to be impartial when angels and demons go to war.

Louis has been alive since life was a mere concept; he watched the summoning of Man into existence, he was there when Eve took the apple. He’s seen seas break the world into separate pieces, he’s watched empires crumble into dust. He’s seen wildfire consume cities, he’s seen the world painted white with snow. He has known the most beautiful humans to walk the planet, he has watched the most powerful mortals gather their riches and influence around them and then die just like the poorest, weakest humans do. He’s met humans whose motives defy explanation, people who use their lives as battering rams, as tools, as weapons, as chess pieces.

None of that stopped Louis in his tracks.

But Harry did.

In the mid 1950s, Niall dreams of being a star like the famous pop icon Louis Tomlinson. When he finds himself in the right place at the right time, he does whatever he can to make it happen. Louis's record label contracts Niall to retrieve their prodigal son from the jaws of debauched luxury and force him to finish his latest album. Of course, Niall takes the job. When he finally arrives in Italy, Niall finds Louis living in sin with the film ingenue Harry Styles in a lush villa by the beach. He can't help falling in love with their lavish lifestyle--and with them, as well. Louis proves mercurial and demanding, however, and pushes Niall into a violent mistake that will haunt him for the rest of his life. As he spirals, Niall is pursued by Zayn Malik, Louis's best friend. He's been suspicious of Niall from the start, and as he and Harry close in on Niall's secret, Niall must defend himself in the only way he's able. Even the love of Bressie, a kind and genuine musician from Niall's hometown, can't save him in the midst of this collapsing house of cards.

i took no time with the fall - lazulisong - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
It's really nice, knowing Victor like this, as a real living person who hates chocolate and sleeps with his dog in his arms like a teddy bear. That he's obsessed with the perfect selfie and remembers that Yuri doesn't like carrots. All of those things about Victor, that Yuri gets to find out every day, over and over again.

Memories You Bury Or Live By - Ren - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
"You have other pilots," Viktor points out. "Other Jaegers."

"I don't have a team! All I've got is a bunch of cadets who are not drift compatible with anyone. You and Katsuki are the best I've got, and History Maker…"

"History Maker is just an old Mark-3. You've got the Mark-5 that was just completed. I'm sure you'll find someone to pilot it."

Half Past the Point of No Return - Erushi - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
“No powers officially listed,” Georgi had observed, leaning forward in his seat to squint at the profile. “What use is a Normal?”

Now, watching from his vantage point, Victor was starting to wonder if Georgi had been right, after all.


Or: The Superpowers AU in which Victor leads a black-ops team and Yuuri is their mysterious new member.

Everything That Washes Away - Chapter 1 - Michelle_A_Emerlind - Hamilton - Miranda [Archive of Our Own]
In Hamilton's darkest hour, it's surprising that the only person who understands him is the one he was sure wouldn't get him at all. Alpha/Beta/Omega Fic. Alternatively known as the one in which Hamilton and Jefferson slowly fall in love while Hamilton grieves the loss of Laurens and while, oh yeah, Hamilton is pregnant with Laurens' baby.

Run and I'll Give Chase - Madalynn_Bohemia - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“You go out every night and maybe you’re able to drink without hurting anyone, but you’re still thirsty, aren’t you? Still have an itch you can’t scratch. A need you can’t put a name to. You desire a companion.”

“You mean a keeper?” Harry corrects with venom in his voice. “Someone to put a leash on me.”

“Wouldn’t need a leash, love.” Louis whispers sensually, and he is suddenly behind Harry, too fast for his eyes to keep track of. “You’re practically pliant just by being in my presence. Of course, if you’re into that sort of thing, I could always get you a lovely collar with a matching leash once you decide to take me up on my offer.”

Or, Harry is a fledgling vampire without a maker. Louis is graciously offering to fill that role.

we've come a long way - graceana - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
For the rest of the movie Louis barely pays attention. He’s too focused on the words that Harry said. They keep echoing in the back of his mind: There are people who don’t experience sexual attraction. That’s Louis. That’s what he’s got to be. He wants to know more. He wants to meet people who are like him, who know what it feels like and how confused and scared it makes him.

there are two things louis is confused about. the first is his sexuality, or lack there of? he guesses. the second is why all of a sudden he has feelings for his best friend.

Nick would do desperate, terrible things as long as Harry will smile at him afterward, as long as he’ll be near Nick at all. He already has done desperate, terrible things, and he’s loved it, every second. He’ll do more, certainly. (Natural Born Killers AU)

Black with Autumn Rain - Chapter 1 - whimsicule - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“Thank you,” Geoff says, taking a sip of his tea. “What did you tell him?”

Louis has a sip as well, lets the tea burn down his throat too quickly, too hot, and he feels it all the way down to his stomach. “The truth. Essentially,” he replies after a moment, licking his lips, relishing the slightly bitter taste of the brew that’s never quite strong enough for Louis’ liking. At least it’s not decaf. “That my dog scented it. That I didn’t touch the body. That I came here first thing.”

Geoff nods pensively. “Did he believe you?”

“Probably not. There’s only so many people who can drown on dry land before it gets fishy.”

or: Harry is a journalist, Louis has lots of secrets and the moors aren't exactly the ideal place to rekindle a lost romance.

Maelstrom - Chapter 1 - feelslikefire - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
Victor Nikiforov is poised to win gold in his fifth consecutive Grand Prix Final. He has the world at his feet, is unparalleled in the sport--right up until a snowstorm blows into Sochi, and he finds himself repeating the same day over and over and over. He stumbles over Yuuri Katsuki, and everything changes.

Fever - MilkTeaMiku - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
Yuuri had always known he was a little bit different when compared to other figure skaters. Of course, the fact that he was socially awkward and rather ungraceful kind of made him stand out anyway, but it was more than that.

It was biology.

Hold Me Tight - Chapter 1 - smudgesofink - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
Katsuki Yuuri is not a tactile man. Anyone who’s spent a minute with him can tell you that much.

Victor, however—

To say that Victor is touchy-feely is the understatement of the century.

So when Victor just stops touching Yuuri, without explanation, without reason, it makes for a painfully jarring experience.

Harry doesn't think Niall knows he knows.

OR an au of the on the streets/gangland type description, drug and alcohol use, violence offscreen, past rough sex (barely mentioned), romantic sex (because we need both sides), somewhat discussed unprotected sex, guns and being shot at and shot, and minor character death (because its a gangland fic and i'm sorry?)

(quiet like a fight) fingers laced together - decadent - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
It’s a thin hope, frail and as thin as the silver strands of a spider web, desperate in the way Louis keeps clinging onto it even when he’s already expecting and preparing for the worst. Maybe one day, he’ll have a home, a place where he can feel safe and sound, tucked away safely from the world that has the tendency to treat him horribly and then even worse, that maybe there will be someone in his life who cares for him, even if in the smallest of ways, and does not just use him for whatever they tend to need at the moment.

Or, the one where Harry is gifted a hybrid and it's a whole new world for the both of them.

Maybe, Baby - Chapter 1 - thoughtsickles - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
It all feels too easy, too good to be true. It all feels like a scene from Louis' daydreams, the kind of life he'd always imagined he'd have when he was younger and bored at his momma's work, sneaking around the hallways of the maternity ward until the nurses let him in to hold the babies. He'd felt so important being allowed to touch them. He'd told them stories of the lives they were going to have, houses with nice wallpaper that wasn't peeling, yards filled with sunshine and flowers and grass that never went yellow. A hammock to nap in, cuddled up with his husband.

You can't stay here, he tells himself, but Baby doesn't want to listen.


Louis runs away. Harry finds him.

Nick is a prostitute with a high-end client list, and he can think of any number of ways aspiring popstar Harry could have gotten his number, dozens of people from any major label who could have handed him a card and said, “If you want to experiment, be discreet.”

Harry is seventeen at the beginning of this story.

With a whimper - Chapter 1 - kitundercover - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
The long-haired man grips his arm tightly. “You’re not going to say anything.” It’s not a question.

Louis shakes his head, his body twitching. It hurts.

“Fine.” Large eyes survey him before letting go. “It’s cold. Take this. Wear it.”

Louis can’t help another flinch as the man’s long scarf is wrapped round his tender neck. It’s still warm. Louis touches the soft material. “Thank you.”

The man bears his teeth. “Don’t thank me. Don’t ever thank me.”


Dystopian AU. Louis has been alone for too long to remember how not to be, and Harry has too much to worry about to deal with a scrawny, wild, stranger.

i'll be someone who won't be forgotten - alaserquest - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
"I’m just—" (Harry hiccups) "there’s a lot here."

And – yeah. There are oceans between them and mountain ranges surrounding them and Louis can feel tectonic plates shifting beneath his unsteady feet, pulling them further and further apart by the heartbeat. There are countries of distance, but there are pages and maps and textbooks of shared histories, moments documented and carefully filed away and Louis can’t remember thinking complete thoughts before he thought of Harry.

Six years since they’ve last seen one another, Louis bumps (literally) into Harry on the street on his way to work. In the hours following, they relearn one another and their past as they wander the streets and relive a few of their most significant memories together. Topics covered: what it means to grow up, how to be a real functioning adult in the world, how to stop lying, gravity in the context of black holes, and the reimagining of inevitability.
