With You, Where I Wanna Stay - justyrae - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
There's nothing keeping Niall on this beach, there's not even anything keeping him in Thailand. But in this moment, for right now, he feels like he could stay here forever.

“I don’t want... I don’t want him growing up thinking that he... has to,” Louis says, struggling to put words to the feeling in his head. “Like, not just because I... was who I was. He doesn’t have to do it like I did it. He can just be himself and love it however he wants to love it. It doesn’t have to mean anything.”

Louis enlists Uncle Nialler's help when Freddie develops a talent for music.

High Spirits - becka - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Harry and Louis have a pretty good following for their paranormal investigation videos on YouTube. So good, in fact, that they've got a contract to turn their videos into a full-fledged series for BBC Three. They hire on some junior investigators, and they have to adjust to a bigger team, not to mention higher production values, TV promo, and rubbing elbows (and sometimes more than elbows) with proper celebrities.

you saw me standing alone - dramaturgicallycorrect - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Louis dreams deep of running, running so hard and so fast he could become something else. He’s in the bog again, but he feels like the master of it. It feels like his home.
He follows a scent, sweet and familiar, pulling him like a siren song across the bog. His toes dig into the mud, finding a natural traction. There’s no chill in the air against his skin betraying the autumn weather, he feels nothing but the pull, stronger than blood, than breathing, than hunger, and Louis serves it dutifully.
He crests a hill and comes to a stop, ready to devour.
Niall stands before him with a shotgun and a silver bayonet in his hands. Louis pauses.

[Or, a Donny werewolf in Ireland.]

"I’m not a cop,” Niall starts with, doesn’t really know why.
The man’s eyes crinkle and when he tugs the bandana down he’s smiling. He’s handsome. “Cops don’t usually say hi when they’re coming to arrest me,” is all he says, tucks his face back into the bandana and waves a hand that Niall understands to mean step back. “Watch my back, yeah?”

Louis is a street artist who hates rich upper east siders. Niall is a rich upper east sider.

“those are me mum’s favourite,” louis says, settling back. “what’s yours?”

“i couldn’t pick just one.” he picks at a loose thread on the upholstery. the sofa’s really quite old. “but maybe a sunflower.”

“i like lavender,”

“does that count as a flower?”

louis gives him a look. “you’re the florist. you tell me.”

Niall knows if he turns, Zayn won’t be there. He doesn’t expect Zayn to be there, but heshould be. He should be next to Niall, looking out at Dubai and smiling and bright and happy and with so much awe that he can’t hide any of it. He should be here next to Niall. They should be sharing this moment.

Zayn isn’t here. Zayn is gone. He’s not letting Niall into anything anymore.

Niall’s afraid the space next to him will never stop feeling empty.

Louis bites the corner of his lip, wondering what’s the best way to put to this.

“I think Niall has wings.”

It’s definitely not the best thing to say, apparently, because Liam’s face falls back into a scowl and he groans again, flopping back down onto his pillow.

“Goodnight, Louis.”

“I think it’s love,” Niall decides finally. Louis looks back at her, sprawled out in the tub in just her bra and jeans, hair a wreck, examining the dragon pipe carefully between her fingers.
“The human soul,” Niall clarifies, eyes flicking up to Louis and she smiles gently. “I think it’s mostly made of love.”

Louis has always liked being around Niall, but it’s different now. It feels like something just for them, the way Louis and Liam had been when the band split or the way Louis and Zayn had been before that, Louis and Harry before that. It’s finally Louis and Niall’s turn, but it’s better even than it had been with the other lads because they’re older and their lives aren’t as mad and it feels like an actual choice they're making.

And they’ve both just ended their marriages, a key component that seems to draw them closer to each other than anyone else.

"Well, you need to see an actual doctor, lad. Get some tests or whatever. Maybe you're—what do they call it. Anemic. That's what makes me mum off and poorly like that. Well, that or she's pregnant." Louis laughs, and Niall laughs too.

"I'm sure it's nothing," Niall says, and puts his hand over Louis's, giving it a squeeze.

"Promise," Louis says, his stern face on, indexing finger jabbed into Niall's chest. "Don't be a fucking idiot."

"Ow, ow, I promise," Niall says, laughing again, curling away from Louis's pointing. "Now, can we get back to—" He pulls at Louis's shoulder, kissing him, keeping his hands light and hoping Louis will follow his lead.

Or: After Zayn's departure, Niall and Louis fall together in a series of hookups that result in something neither of them planned on.

"Is that what it says it's like?" Louis points vaguely to Niall's phone. He doesn't want to say the name of the thing.

"It says, um." Niall's mouth twists as he tries to figure out the words. “When you're bonded with someone, you’re for each other, after that. You’re -- like, you and me – you’d be the person I’m happiest with, all the time. Who I.” His toes curl on the tiled deck of the pool between their chairs. “Who, you know. Who I end up with.”

"Niall," Louis says, and has no idea where to go from there.

Niall is a Chelsea midfielder recovering from major knee surgery. With luck, he should be back and better than ever next season, but for the summer he's basically housebound, and in the back of his mind he knows he might never play again. To liven up the monotony, he seeks out the services of Louis, a high-class hooker who's happy to make house calls. And although Niall's been with professionals in the past, he couldn't have expected the feelings he has for Louis, how quickly being with Louis starts to feel like being with a friend. Or more than a friend.

“Shouldn’t be here?” Niall finishes for him. “Shouldn’t do this?”
“All of it,” Louis tries for flippant, tries to bring edge back into his smile and Niall shrugs.
