American AU where the boys all work for their college newspaper. Louis gets to voice his opinion in every issue, Liam is in charge, keeping everyone in line, Niall just really loves soccer, Zayn is an aspiring photographer and Harry is the incoming photo editor.
(Or, the one where Louis wants to date Harry, but won’t, because they work together, even though the other boys follow no such rule.)
Louis turned and looked Harry in the eye. “I told Niall that even though he wanted to date Josh, his co-worker, it just wasn’t going to work out. And that was OK, because there’s plenty of other people out there for him.”
Please take the hint. Please.
It looked like Harry did, because he simply nodded before breaking the gaze.

Hi cookies! Just letting y’all know that everyone asking or volunteering to be part of the fic exchange should be receiving responses later today (don’t worry, we’re not ignoring you! Thanks for all your patiences and support!) xx Liz
AU. As part of a team of fixers hired to handle a gay scandal in Buckingham Palace, Louis expects Prince Harry to be a lot of things—most notably a royally spoilt brat. Never mind that the very same Prince Harry used to star in quite a number of Louis’ teenage fantasies.

Notes: 128k and finished only just this week! Stupidly lovely AU (inspired by the tv show Scandal) that’ll run your mind for days. xx Liz
AU. In which Harry is an overnight pop sensation and Louis steals plants, Zayn pulls Liam’s proverbial pigtails and Niall’s really just pleased there are more girls for him.

Notes: Original post lost. An absolute favourite fic of mine by one of my favourite authors, it’s a classic! Hugely recommended xx Liz
Hi duckies! Pay attention to new captions like this one: Oneshot, Ao3, Must-Read, Mature (TW). The “Mature (TW)” bit basically means that at some point within the fic there is (or at least mentions of) mature content that can be triggering for some (TW being Trigger Warning). Possibly triggering content will be addressed in every post’s tags (so depending on the fic, “abuse” or “edharry” might be in the tags), that way it is clear what the actual “mature content” is. However, it’s always best to go straight to authors’ tags before reading any fic. TW’s are almost always mentioned within an author’s description of their own fics. Yep, that’s all! xx Liz
“So here’s the thing,” he starts. “I didn’t mean what I said a few weeks ago to like, hurt your feelings or anything. If you like painting your nails, then you should do that, and not like, care if anyone else doesn’t like it because their opinions shouldn’t matter, you know?” Louis takes a breath, finally glancing over to see the boy wide-eyed and pink-cheeked. On a whim, he adds, “And like, I noticed you scraping it off and you haven’t been wearing any and I think you should because that’s what you like.”
or an au where harry paints his nails and drinks strawberry milk and is too nervous for it to be nothing and louis’ just trying to figure out whats wrong with him

Notes: Probably the most lovely thing I have ever read, yep. Read the author’s tags for more info, I’m just gonna go read this again (and again). xx Liz
Slytherin prefect Louis Tomlinson’s seventh year at Hogwarts takes an immediate turn for the worse when he’s made to be potions partners with Harry Styles, Hufflepuff’s resident heartthrob and class clown. Louis has always considered Styles to be a terrible show-off who coasts by on his charm and good looks, but the more they work together, the more he questions that idea. As term goes on, will Louis be able to admit to himself that he might actually like Harry Styles after all… and maybe, just maybe, as more than a friend?

Harry chuckles. “Why don’t you stay?” Louis just blinks at him. Entering dangerous territory. “I mean, why do you always leave?”
Louis’s silent while he contemplates his answer.”Dunno, really. I get bored easily.”
Harry doesn’t even think before responding. “I think you haven’t found a reason to stay.”
Louis is hired to be the new program director at DFM. He knows he’ll be leaving in a year when his contract is up, but the station’s sales manager, Harry, might give him a reason to stay. Also starring Liam as the station manager, and Niall and Zayn as Djs.

Notes: Sorry Marie, but I had to add the must-read tag !
“Infamous boybander leaves club together with unknown,” read the headline. Underneath were pictures of a boy with dark curls, green eyes and very tight pants. They both studied the article for a moment, reading it through quickly.
“Is that…?” Louis frowned. That guy almost looked exactly like… “HOLY FUCKING SHIT!”
"Louis," Niall said, looking absolutely fucked over. "You just fucked the most wanted guy on earth. You just fucked Harry Styles of One Direction."
Or, the one where Harry and Louis meet at a club and Louis takes Harry home, only for him to realize that the boy who just made him breakfast half naked is Harry Styles from One Direction.

Notes: Repost - tags weren’t working on the original post.
"17BLACK, a Top-5, bar in London, is seeking to fill the Server/Bartender position: Competitive wages, Flexible Schedule, Team Atmosphere, Free Meals, and Free Parking.

Or the one where Nick is 17BLACK bar owner and Louis is sassy bartender. Harry is Louis’ new trainee who has to take care of his mom; Zayn is Louis’ best friend and waiter. Liam is delivery guy and Niall just likes to come over for a pint or two.

After a serious car accident, Harry struggles to come back to himself. And to Louis.
Hi kitties, it’s Liz again and apparently y’all can’t get rid of me, aha! Anyways, just popping in to let y’all know that the cheating tag is now up (surprise!). It is under the “relationship tags” subheading on the taglinks page. There are more new tags to come, so stay tuned (that sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?) xx Liz
Louis never really paid attention to Harry until they get stuck in the locker room together. Inspired by this au meme.
Hi cookies, it’s Liz (again, i know). Perhaps some of you have already seen a recent edit to the “chaptered” fics page. If not, it says: “As of September 2014, new chaptered fics will only be tagged as either completed or as a work in progress. It is still possible to scroll through all chaptered fics, whether they are chaptered or a WIP, by clicking the link above. This feature will remain. To find a chaptered fic with a specific tag, however, you will have to decided whether you’d rather read a completed or a WIP. Tag navigation pages still include completed and WIP categories. This change allows for more relevant tags to be added to rec posts.” I hope this makes sense to everyone? Basically, the “chaptered” tag has been discontinued within other tags (you have to choose either completed or WIP), but if you don’t have a specific tag or topic in mind, you can still browse through all the chaptered fics we have and will rec. Message us if you have any questions, but the change is overall quite minor; most people search by “completed” or “WIP” as it is. I suppose that’s all! xx Liz
