maybe this time - dramaturgicallycorrect - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
He realizes it may be minutes since he’s said anything, but he’s completely lost his train of thought. He doesn’t even remember what he was about to say and, for the first time in nearly six years, he has to glance down at this notes to jog his memory.

He doesn’t like being thrown off balance, hates it in fact, that he can be thrown at all and that Liam’s the one to do it. Liam’s always been the one to do it.

“I’m, um. The President, he,” Louis says, chancing a quick glance back up at Liam, who’s got his eyebrows quirked up and he looks far more amused than should be allowed. He can’t look at Liam, Liam’s making it about seventeen times worse, so he finds Niall at the back of the room. He can barely see Niall without his glasses, but he doesn’t have to to know that Niall is mouthing what the fuck is wrong with you at him.

[Or a West Wing AU where Louis is the White House Press Secretary and Liam has just returned from a four year long assignment, and they think maybe this time, they'll be lucky.]

to be a king beside you - dramaturgicallycorrect - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
He’s beautiful, he’s got a bright open face, clear eyes, a contagious smile. Louis reminds himself that on the night of the Kennedy-Nixon debate, those who listened to the radio thought Nixon won, but those who watched it on television thought Kennedy won. How a candidate looks does have some credence, like it or not. So that’s the only reason Louis studies his features so closely.

Beyond that, Harry is just good. He rises from his folding chair and shakes the hand of every person in the room, his warm smiles provoking some in return from people who have probably never greeted a politician warmly in their lives. That’s step one, getting them to like you. But getting people to trust you, that’s a whole different ballgame. Eventually, they’ll go home, they’ll forget his face. They’ll remember his age before they remember his words. He needs credibility.

With a few gentle prods in the right direction, Harry Styles could be formidable. Harry Styles could go all the way.

[Or Louis is the Kingmaker and he’s going to make Harry a king.]
