In the interest of
fanfiction science, let me know what kind of H/L AU you would like to see worked into a multiverse fic. It has to be an AU, not a plotline. So “university ultimate frisbee teammates AU” works, but “louis goes to uni on the ultimate team and harry is the geeky boy in his stats class and…” does not.
Here’s a question mark so people can reply?
You can vote for it to make the final 10 in The Larry Library’s “10 Best Larry Fics” list! Thank you to everyone who helped it get the #5 most noms in the prelims; that makes my day!! Millie would love to make the Top 10 even more than she loves lizards…
"She’s taken to you quickly," Tom notices upon his return from the shed. "Usually doesn’t like strangers as much. Took her a while to get used to Niall."
"Well, she was teeny," Lou huffs. "She’s a big old girl now."
"Big!" exclaims Lux, smashing her hands together. She doesn’t say anything else, just bounces for a moment and then flops back against Harry.
Lou brushes Lux’s hair back behind one small ear. “Big and tuckered out. It’s a hot one today. George, would you like to help us make some blackberry shrub?”
Lux’s eyes swivel to look beseechingly at Harry.
He can’t say no to the kid. He can already tell it’s going to be a problem. “What do you think, Miss Lux?” he asks her. “D’you think we should make some shrub?”
She whistles an mmmm! through her nose, so Harry smiles at Lou and lets her lead him back across the yard to the farmhouse. Jesy and Leigh-Anne are painting the shutters that Harry and Tom just built; Perrie had all of the blankets from the house spread out hanging over tree trunks, and she led the twins in a rousing exercise of beating them clean with rackets. They’re all back inside now, and the grass beneath the hanging rugs is frosted with gray dust.
He doesn’t know where Zayn or Niall or Louis are. That sort of concerns him.
(I did in fact start a Millie outtake.
It’s going to be a long one.
There’s a new baby sibling for a certain Styles child in it.)
(That said, I really am fr srs posting a Millie outtake on Monday!)
Lucy (heyspibsy) and I will be answering questions about Landslide now, finally, because we waited 5 days to try to avoid spoiling people. IF YOU HAVEN’T READ YET and would like to avoid spoilers, block the tag “landslide spoilers.”
Nope! The ending is the ending-ending. We just like ambiguous endings. :)
AND HERE’S THE SERIES ANNOUNCEMENT!: Originally, what Lucy and I had planned for our bigbang was a big fic of 12 different historical AUs, one for every decade between 1900-2010, but then we started on the 1970s AU that became “Landslide” and, well, we’re us so it got really long and intense. However, we’re still pumped about all of the other decades’ AUs that we have planned, so we’re just going to make it a series of long, developed historical AUs! All of them are going to be Harry/Louis, but the main plots, settings, side characters, side pairings, themes, etc. will be different and will fit the decade(s) in which they’re set. (I AM SO EXCITED TO WRITE THESE. LIKE. I AM SO EXCITED TO WRITE THEM.)
IT’S POSTED!! FORMAL POST COMING LATER PROBABLY BUT ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!
Of course I’m still writing Harry/Louis fics! I just posted one on Christmas, haha. :)

This round is called, “try to guess what kind of AU this is.” (If you’re one of the two people we’ve told, don’t spoil it.)
And then he’s naked, with a man he loves, surrounded by glass and snow.
It’s really beautiful when Harry lets himself stop thinking. There’s nothing in the world but the two of them and snowflakes. Harry can let himself believe that.
Louis must get caught up in it, too, the softness of it and the rounded edges and the not-quite-real but real-enoughness of it, because he blinks slowly as Harry undoes the long line of buttons down his flannel shirt and murmurs, “I love you too, you know.”
Harry believes it. He believes it like this, just the two of them in the world.
When Harry pushes Louis’ shirt off his shoulders, he lets his fingers trail and touch every strand of scar, every dark tattoo, every inch of skin. He bends to press his lips to the rough round remnants of gunshot wounds that he still can’t explain, and Louis lets him, for once, just carding his fingers through Harry’s hair.
