    Summary

    “Oh,” Harry frowns, waving him off. “No, I could never. I respect myself too much to sing for a living.”

    It feels like a slap across the face, but Louis does his best not to stiffen, blinking once and then frowning. “What?”

    “Those people are always so miserable, you know?” Harry says, hopping down off his stool and straightening his sweater. “There’s so much pressure on them, and they have to work so hard to keep up appearances, I can’t even imagine how difficult that is. I can’t even stand to listen to pop music today, let alone watch TV or read the magazines. It makes me so sad, thinking that those people, you know, the ones who actually went into it with heart, they only ever just wanted to make music and instead they got turned into things on leashes being paraded around to make money for other people,” he says. “Anyway, you can have the stool.”

     

    Or, Louis's famous, Harry has no idea who he is, and they get snowed in together at a ski lodge in Vermont.

    Summary

    Louis raises his eyebrows. “You want to be friends with benefits?”

    Harry shrugs, “If that’s what you want to call it then, yeah. Why not?”

    Louis brings his hand to rub the stubble on his jaw, seeming lost in his own thoughts. “Okay, I’ll agree on three conditions.”

    “One: no sleep overs.”

    Harry nods, “Okay."

    “Two: if either of us finds someone else we call it off no questions asked.”

    Harry isn’t sure why his stomach turns at that, but he agrees anyway.

    “And three,” Louis’ face hardens, “you cannot, under any circumstances, fall in love with me.”

    Harry snorts, “Yeah, okay,” he chuckles lightly.

    or- When One Direction goes on hiatus, Harry and Louis reconnect, becoming the friends they once were during their days in the X Factor. It doesn’t take long for their friendship to evolve into friends with benefits, unable to resist the physical attraction between them. Things get complicated when feelings get in the way.

    Summary

    “Harry, I-I’m so sorry…” Louis stutters out, trying to keep his voice level and even, to portray a depiction of strength, but with the way Harry is looking at him, staring at him like he has a personal passage way straight to Louis’ soul, it’s so hard, nearly impossible.

    That simple opening phrase, that short introductory acknowledgement that is often rushed out so easily, painlessly, at a safe distance. Giving a doctor the ability to portray empathy without true emotion, without feeling the full brunt and sheer force of the underlying pain itself.

    But Louis feels it, he feels the crushing agony laced behind the phrase, he feels the weight of the painful words slipping from his lips, the cause and effect that the three-word expression holds. The distantly empty “I’m so sorry” that doctors throw out in self-preservation, isn’t at all empty for him. Louis recognizes it, he understands it, he feels it.
