Great Minds (They Think Just the Same)
Summary: This entire thing was going to be an utter failure. Why had Louis agreed to this? Why had he allowed Harry to convince him it was a good idea? He didn’t know anything more than the basics about being a DJ, and while he wanted to learn, he’d hoped he could get a bit more instruction. He’d had a bit back in 2012, but Louis also thought it would be more hands on than just the few verbal instructions Nick had given him before he kicked off the show.

Nick Grimshaw, whom Louis absolutely one hundred percent refused to call Grimmy, was sitting across the table from him, bopping about looking adorable in his headphones as he laughed at tweets and texts that were coming in. Too bad he was a dick.

Or the one where in an attempt to get the Breakfast Show back to the number one morning show in the country, the BBC brings on Louis as a co-host with Nick. They only thing is they don't really get along... until they do.

Not That Good Of A Person (But I Might Be For You)
Summary: “Do you fucking mind?” Louis asked tensely, glaring at Nick.

“You know, I thought naming your old ship after a greek goddess was some quirk of yours,” Nick started then gestured towards the book that Louis placed on his shelf. “But clearly, you have a thing."

“You make one more comment I will abandon you on a dying planet,” Louis said, turning back to his bag of things. He heard Nick scoff behind him before he left and let the door slide shut. Louis closed his eyes and took a deep breath to calm himself down before he went back to fix up his space.

The one thing Louis wanted was for Nick to leave him alone, but that clearly wasn’t going to happen.

or the one where nick and louis hate each other until they don't and there's a spaceship.

Cigarette In My Left Hand, Whole World In My Right Hand
Summary: Harry's had some really bad ideas before, starting with the time he got pissed and jumped into the Thames stark naked, but this might take the fucking cake. Offering up Louis as a viable option for a model for Nick's last photography project is ludicrous at best and a disaster waiting to happen at worst.

You Can't Take The Sky From Me
Summary: “Alright,” Nick says eventually. “You can stay till our next stop. But it’s not gonna come free.” Louis stiffens. He’s got money, sure, but he’s worried that that’s not the kind of payment Nick is looking for. “Oh, don’t look so scared,” Nick says, though. “We’re not stopping till we’re in the next system. Can you work?”

“Oh,” Louis says, relieved. “Yeah, I can do pretty much anything.”

“Great, well, welcome aboard the Pig Dog,” Nick says, extending a hand out for Louis to shake. Louis takes it, decidedly not thinking about how it’s larger than his own and also very warm and quite soft, and instead cocks his head.

“Wait, your ship is called the Pig Dog?”

[Or: the one where Louis stows away and gets more than he bargained for.]

Give Me One More Night With You
Summary: Louis turns up at Nick’s door on Saturday night, carrying a bottle of wine that he’d picked out at random at a Sainsburys on the way there.

He’d spent ages trying to figure out what you were supposed to wear when you’re going over to somebody’s house so they can thank you for looking after their dog but really you were effectively keeping their dog hostage and you also think that that person is really cute and you’re trying not to be weird about it. His Google search had been, perhaps unsurprisingly, not very helpful.

Or, the one where Pig turns up on Louis' doorstep one day, and Louis has a crush.

There Now, Steady Love
Summary: Nick's just had his heart broken, Louis is surprisingly careful with it.

Or, the one where Nick's a small time radio DJ & Louis's a single dad trying to make it as a musician.

Mix The Salt And Sugar And Flour
Summary: Once upon a time, Louis and Nick were rude to each other in a restaurant. Louis took it as a sign, Nick blogged about it, and they went their separate ways. Mostly. They get a second chance when Aimee and Ian hire Louis to cater their wedding.

Why Do You Kiss Everybody But Me?
Summary: Nick and Fiona make a bet that if Nick can snog every member of One Direction, then Fiona will ask Ian out on a date. Nick agrees to this for three reasons: 1. He never turns down a bet. 2. He's completely plastered. 3. How hard could it be?

Less Catfishing, More Cats
Summary: Nick drops his head back, too tired from a long day at the shop to put up a real fight. “I'd rather you used a crap photo. I'd rather this was a joke.”

“Nothing funny about this,” Ian mutters seriously, eyes scanning whatever he's written. Probably something along the lines of almost-but-not-quite fit bloke approaching middle age seeks a warm body to curl up to at night, not picky, terribly lonely and sad.

(Nick's friends sign him up for a dating site against his will. He's going to replace them with cats.)

You Are In A Garden, And You Are Astonished
Summary: “In April,” Louis echoes shakily. It’s August now, so if Nick cheated on him in April, then he’s been keeping it from Louis for four months. Louis feels sick; he takes another deep breath.

“Well you were gone, and I was alone with Iris and Oliver, and Nina was supposed to pick them up from school one day but she had an emergency, and I couldn’t leave work early. So I asked C-“

“No,” interjects Louis. “No, don’t tell me his name, don’t tell me who he is. I don’t want to know. All I want to know is why, after not telling me for four months, are you telling me now?”

There's Always Time For Second Guesses
Summary: Louis has never felt more welcomed before, never felt more sure that this is what he wants, definitely never felt like he has a shot at making it. It's the strangest and most exciting feeling in the world.

And then Louis meets Nick Grimshaw.

And I Will Give Up This Fight (Love In The Nick Of Time)
Summary: Exams were in a week and Lou was, quite frankly, falling to pieces under the pressure of good grades and dealing with the emotional repercussions of a longstanding crush that would not let her free of it’s clutches.

Lou has had a crush on Nick for what seems like forever. Not that Nick even knows she exists.
