We'll Rise Up - FallingLikeThis - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“So,” Liam begins with a smile, “you were the associate pastor at your last church?”

“Yes,” Louis can already feel himself scrunching down in his seat, shrinking against even the reminder of the church he was forced from.

“Was that a good experience for you?” Liam steeples his hands in front of him as he leans his elbows on the desk in interest.

“It was for a while but, to be honest, things ended rather badly,” Louis leans forward too, he needs to get this out and he wants to tell Liam everything, have everything on the table.

Leaning forward even more, Liam seems to be looking for the same thing, “What happened?”

Louis can feel the trembles in his hands again, so he sits on them, biting his lip before admitting, “They found out I’m gay.”

In the hallway, there’s a terribly loud thump and then a grunt of pain and Louis twists around to see Harry, sprawled out on the ground just outside the doorway.


Louis is a Pastor with no church and a heart filled with uncertainty. Pastor Payne is more than willing to give Louis a new place to work, but it's Music Director Harry that helps him rebuild his faith.

Kissing in the Rain - Chapter 1 - Writcraft - BBC Radio 1 RPF [Archive of Our Own]
It starts at a party with shitty cocktails, a DJ that's definitely not as good as Nick and some 'that only happens in the movies' kissing in the rain.

[so good and painful and gorgeous in a way i can't possibly tag correctly]

I'll Fly Away - Chapter 1 - juliusschmidt - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Harry and Louis grew up together in Lake County, Harry with his mom and stepdad in a tiny cottage on Edward’s Lake and Louis in his family’s farmhouse a few minutes down the road. But after high school, Louis stuck around and Harry did not; Harry went to Chicago where he found a boyfriend and couple of college degrees. Six years later, Harry ends up back in Edwardsville for the summer and he and Louis fall into old patterns and discover new ones.

ft. One Direction, the local boyband; Horan’s Bar and Grill; families, most especially children and babies; Officer Liam Payne; many local festivals and fireworks displays; and Anne Cox, PFLAG President.

missing you is a slow burn - clairdeloune - One Direction (Band), BBC Radio 1 RPF [Archive of Our Own]
“Maybe we should talk,” he offers quietly, even though he already knows what the answer will be. So when Louis frantically shakes his head and tries to kiss him again, he takes his face in his hands and strokes his cheek with his thumb, asks, “What do you want, love?”

Louis doesn’t look him in the eye when he whispers, “You.”

So Nick gives him just that.

so impatient when you're not mine - Anonymous - One Direction, BBC Radio 1 RPF [Archive of Our Own]
It's easier to sleep at home anyway, but Nick's home is even more welcoming than his own now.

Or, Nick and Louis spend most of their time apart, but it's mostly worth it.

Harry knows that he and Nick were meant to be. Just not yet. They've got time for that, yeah? They can be all Ed Sheeran, "we found love right where we are," old and boring together later.

When this certainty collapses in the blink of an eye, Harry struggles to come to terms with a life in which he could lose Nick, in which no matter what he sacrifices, Nick might not wake up.

somewhere only we know - Chapter 1 - bethaboo - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Personal assistant Louis knows something is up with his best friend and employer Harry. And it's not just his big tour coming up or the ever-increasing womanizing rumors about the popstar. To get to the bottom of Harry's moodiness, Louis decides he has to kidnap him and take him on a roadtrip up the California coast to Portland.

The roadtrippiest road trip fic ever written. Basically an excuse for gratuitous fluff and smut with a pinch of angst tossed in for good measure.

loose lips sink ship all the damn time (not this time) - MediaWhore - Radio 1 RPF, One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“Louis Tomlinson is gay,” Fiona announces and she sounds calm at least.

“That’s not a scandal,” Nick replies automatically even though he feels slightly sick. He needs to call Louis back. Now.

“No,” Fiona agrees quickly. “But his underage gay sex tape is.”

the one where louis is outed via a sex tape he made before the x-factor and nick can't resist flying to america to give him a shoulder to cry on. told through flashbacks, this is a story of getting together and getting back together.

Enough to Go By - oliviacirce - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Liam answers the door in tracksuit bottoms so old and worn that Louis remembers them from their first stadium tour. He's got his arms crossed over his bare chest, and there are pillow creases on his cheek, and he looks like he's going to be cross, just as soon as he wakes up enough to remember that he should be. Louis can understand that, since he's been leaning on the bell of Liam's flat for ten minutes, and it's half two in the morning.

love is a word (you gave it a name) - Anonymous - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“It’s worth it anyway,” says Harry, looking into Louis’s eyes. He’s untucked his hair from behind his ear, and it falls down in silky strands to obscure his face. He looks so painfully young, even after everything. Louis’s strong, strong boy. “Just for the two of us. We get to be selfish for a little while.”

it's christmas. in between snowman building, tree shopping, and ill-advised skating on a frozen lake, louis and harry get ready to take the most important step of their lives.

No Bleeding Hearts - whoknows - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m going to come out,” Louis says abruptly. His grip on the controller is tight, knuckles whitening. He doesn’t look at Harry when he says it.

“What?” Harry says. Louis sucks in a breath through his teeth.

“When we re-negotiate our contracts. I’m going to come out.” Harry fumbles with the controller and manages to set it down on coffee table without cracking it in half.

“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” Harry says. Louis is still pointedly not looking at him.

“I’m not having this argument with you again, Harry,” Louis tells him. He leans forward and deposits his own controller on the table beside Harry’s before standing up. “I’m gonna go to the hotel.”
