    A half-step is all it takes to get Aziraphale close enough to murmur into Crowley’s ear, “Put the light out when you go to bed, and I’ll come to you.”

    Summary

    “Thank you,” Geoff says, taking a sip of his tea. “What did you tell him?”

    Louis has a sip as well, lets the tea burn down his throat too quickly, too hot, and he feels it all the way down to his stomach. “The truth. Essentially,” he replies after a moment, licking his lips, relishing the slightly bitter taste of the brew that’s never quite strong enough for Louis’ liking. At least it’s not decaf. “That my dog scented it. That I didn’t touch the body. That I came here first thing.”

    Geoff nods pensively. “Did he believe you?”

    “Probably not. There’s only so many people who can drown on dry land before it gets fishy.”

    or: Harry is a journalist, Louis has lots of secrets and the moors aren't exactly the ideal place to rekindle a lost romance.

    Summary

    Harry looks down to where Louis is cradling his hand between his own. Louis' hands are slender, the bones delicate, the nails bitten short. The 2-8 on the backs of his fingers is gone, but the faded scar from a skateboarding mishap in Year 7 is still there.

    Harry's hand is awkward, knobby-boned and naked, no rings, no tattoos. It's too big for his wrist and his wrist too big for his arm. Yet it still somehow fits in Louis' in the painfully perfect way it always did.

    He blinks back the sting in his eyes.

     

    On the morning of his second sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden, Harry wakes up to find that he's sixteen years old, on The X Factor, and that he has a chance to make things right.

    A canon-compliant fix-it fic (sort of).

    Summary

    Harry has a type.

    He likes older, sophisticated, mature men. Well-educated men. Men with life experience and passion for arts and social causes. Men who are established in their careers, who've sorted their lives out.

    Niall knows this.

    And so Harry can't understand why he's sat here opposite Louis Tomlinson.

    very heartfelt! the misunderstandings are ridiculous but in a believable way because people DO make assumptions and judge books by their covers
