    Summary

    “You know there are pubs that don’t give a shit if you’re betting as long as you’re a paying customer, but you’re not gonna find them in bloody Piccadilly Gardens, are you?”
    “Harry, look at us,” Louis laughs, “Really look at us. How long do you think we’d last hustling in some shoddy pub in Hulme, or wherever the fuck?”
    “You’d be surprised.”

     

    (In which Louis is too good a pool player for his own good, and Harry just wants to be helpful)

    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    His smile had a wicked edge. He sat up Indian-style and shuffled closer, as if he was sharing a private joke and Louis understood the punchline. “I’m a fallen angel.”
    Lonely and far away from home, Louis meets a stranger who may or may not be more than he seems. Aka a fic in which Harry is a fallen angel who gets too close to a human.

    Summary

    Louis wonders briefly if a quick Google search might yield any helpful results on whether or not it’s considered normal behavior to lend a one-night-stand your shampoo and a spare pair of underwear, after you’ve already invited him to spend a casual day together. He could even kill two birds with one stone, maybe have a look around for something like, 'fun activities to do with hot strangers once you’ve already slept with each other', since he’s realising he and Harry never actually decided what to do with the rest of their afternoon.

    Summary

    “I just think if we’re both into it and neither of us is looking for something serious, why not?” Harry asks, eyes soft and voice sweet. He pauses and gives Louis a moment or two to answer.

    There are countless reasons why Louis shouldn’t agree to this, but in the end, none of them really matter. This will end with Louis in pieces, but he’s been in love with Harry for four years. There was only ever one answer.

    “Yeah,” Louis answers finally, hoping his voice sounds normal. “Why not?”

    AU in which Louis hates his job and loves Harry, Harry just wants a distraction, everyone else wants them to get their shit together, and Louis learns the hard way that new beginnings are only possible when something ends.
