    Summary

    “Liam is in a coma.”
    “Yeah, we can see that,” the father says, throwing his hands in the air.
    “God, this is the most depressing Christmas ever,” the blonde sister mutters.
    “His vital signs are strong,” Dr. Higgins assures them. “Brain waves are good–”
    “Brain waves?” the mother wails, taking Liam’s hand in hers. “Oh my God!”
    “How did this happen?” the father demands.
    “Um, he was pushed from the platform at the subway station,” Harry pipes up.
    The entire family turns to look at him, confused. Harry shrinks back, wishing he could have just kept his big mouth shut.
    “Who’s this?” the father asks, pointing at him.
    “Um, I’m Harry–” he starts.
    “He’s Liam’s fiancé!” Jade adds helpfully from where she stands by the door.
    Every jaw in the room drops, including Harry’s.
    Oh, shit. Shit shit shit. What?

    When Harry, a lonely transit worker, saves the life of the handsome commuter he's been secretly pining for, an innocent mistake results in Liam Payne's family believing that Harry is engaged to their son.

    Summary

    Louis looks at him like his words might break him, glass about to splinter, one wrong footfall away from shattering into a million tiny pieces.

    “Hey,” Harry breathes, and he knows, meeting Louis’ eyes, that his words could break him easy as anything. He almost wants Louis to bring his boot down.

    Summary

    There have been many times that Harry’s considered approaching Louis about his feelings and putting everything on the line. He’s no stranger to wearing his heart on his sleeve. Every time though, he’s stopped by a pop of the hip, a flick of the fringe, or those goddamn maroon skinny jeans, rolled up just the perfect amount to show off Louis’ dainty ankles. 

    It’s not that Harry doesn’t believe their relationship would be amazing, because it would be. It’s just, for all that they blend together perfectly, Harry isn’t sure that they’d be sexually compatible. Because while Harry loves to be held down and man-handled, Louis, well…

    Louis is a twink.

    Or the one where Harry moves in with Louis and doesn't know how to take a hint.

    Summary

    They stand around talking for a minute and then Jonathan starts to ramble, “Has there ever been, like, an unrequited gay love story in here? Like a Brokeback Mountain moment where, like, someone just fell in love and they didn’t mean to?”

    Louis feels bile rise in his throat as Jonathan’s eyes sparkle, pleading for a yes. He manages to look around and see thoughtful looks on his coworkers’ faces before their heads shake no.

    “Not here,” Liam says finally.

    When the Queer Eye cast and crew sweep into Louis’ small town and fire station to make over his best friend and coworker Liam, Louis’ carefully constructed walls start to fall down and he has to face his fears – and the only guy he’s ever been able to see a future with.
