AU : The X factor’s judge Louis Tomlinson, 22, dating contestant Harry Styles, 18.



But like, 22 year old Louis is a former teen popstar that has sold millions of records, charmed teens across the world, and following the years of his life where he sold out stadiums and arenas around the globe, has been headhunted by Simon Cowell to be a judge on the latest season of The X-Factor UK. Enter Harry. An eighteen year old heartthrob that immediately impresses all the judges and the home viewers. Louis knows he is in the presence of someone special. Someone that can just pick up a guitar, strum a few notes, and sing a hauntingly beautiful, original tune. Harry ends up on Simon’s team, however this doesn’t stop Louis from checking in with Harry from time to time. Just to make sure his youth isn’t affecting his belief in himself. Harry and Louis click right off the bat and continue a nice friendship throughout Harry’s stint on the show. Harry gets through week after week, not only appealing to teenage girls, but also captivating older audiences. He has never been shy about his sexuality, and home audiences ship him with the also-out Louis. Shockingly, Harry is eliminated in the penultimate week, coming fourth overall. Harry is upset, but it is not until Louis goes to comfort him (“Hazza, who cares? Everyone knows the people that come third and fourth do better than the winner anyway”), that Harry admits he was more upset because he feels like he has disappointed Louis. And then the home audience’s ship comes to life. Harry and Louis begin dating after the season ends. Although Louis wasn’t his mentor, the pair decided it would be best for appearances to hold off until the competition was over. Cue candid shots at all hours of the day. Harry and Louis, walking in the park, and feeding the ducks. Harry and Louis, out for dinner at small, intimate venues, leaving with their hands clasped . Harry and Louis, out at all the events of the season, dressed in tailored suits. Harry and Louis, when Harry’s career takes off and he’s invited to every launch ever. Harry and Louis, when Louis’ song-writing is recognised and he becomes a lecturer at the local (prestigious) music college. Harry and Louis, when Louis judges on The X-Factor the following year, and his guest mentor at home visits is Harry, and all the groups get flown to their house in LA, and get to see the Larry love-nest in all its glory. Harry and Louis, when they finally get engaged. And all of the UK can attest to the fact that they saw the blossoming love between the former popstar turned successful songwriter, and the fourth-placed indie artist who hit the bigtime. A love story for the ages.

I understand that a lot of people enjoy writing shipfics where they transplant characters into a college setting. Since some writers may not be in college, or may have graduated a long time ago, I thought I’d offer a helpful list of realistic college meet not-so-cute scenarios. Forget baristas. This is where it’s at. 

- I’m really passionate about this cause and I will give you this flier if I have to shove it down your throat

- vicious battle over the only left handed desk in the room

- my roommate’s boyfriend is staying over so can I please sleep on your floor

- it’s pouring and my final paper is in my backpack so I guess we’re stuck under this tiny awning together. do you think they’d deliver pizza here

- hey I have to photograph someone for class will you be my model

- hey I have to take someone’s blood pressure for class will you be my victim

- variations of the above

- I know I keep coming to the cookie shop and for some reason it’s always your shift but don’t you dare judge me I need these for my sanity

- all our friends are drunk

- it’s 3 am and I’m still in the library studying for finals and I’m losing my grip on reality and I think I just saw a ghost

- we’re the only two people in this club. what is this club even for

- humans vs zombies (see you can still have your zombie AU, best of both worlds)

- we’re the only people who ever talk in discussions it’s awful

- GROUP PROJECT

         (little-smartass)

- Neither of us bought the expensive textbook but there is only one copy in the library and it can’t leave the building

- This awesome professor only has one TA slot and we’re rivals

- I found your USB drive still in the computer

- I thought I was the only one who liked the waffle station in the cafeteria

- You keep reserving the good study room in the corner of the library with the windows

- We’re studying in the library and there are two people very obviously fucking in the stacks and we keep sharing embarrassed glances

- We’re both donating blood in the blood donation van in the quad to get out of the same class

- You decked me in the head while you were playing frisbee golf

- Wait, I actually have a competent lab partner?

- You’re the RA and you’re trying to bust me for having hermit crabs

- You’re baking cookies in the communal kitchen at 3am and I’m angry but also really hungry

- What are you doing at this table at the career fair

- Waiting for office hours

- I’ve been sitting in this seat all semester why did you decide to sit in it today

- Clearly we’re both really uncomfortable at this party

- You peed on my car. You were drunk. I was in the car. There will be hell to pay.

- We started racing up the three flights of stairs to class for some reason and we can’t stop

- You’re REALLY GOOD at using the right search terms for the academic databases and I’m on a deadline

-my friend dragged me to this party and I just saw my ex quick make out with me

-we’re always at the fitness center at the same time and end up competing on the treadmill

- Sorry my roommate puked on your shoes

- Can I borrow a dryer sheet? I ran out and the ones in the vending machine give me a rash

-Your school mailbox is right next to mine

-I saw you sneaking captain crunch and cutlery out of the dining hall

-My roommate borrowed your contraband hotpot and managed to set it on fire

-You keep using my preferred shower stall in the floor bathrooms when I’m trying to get ready for class

-My computer crashed and you’re the student worker at the IT center

-we’re both on althetic teams that aren’t as cool as the football team and they give us shit

- You’re part of the guerrilla theater club on campus and crashed my class for a performance

-What do you mean we’re under a tornado warning?

au set in the future when 1d have split up and harrys moved to la and louis is still in london, doing nothing, wishing he hadn’t let harry go, and then one day he gets a call from simon “long time no see basically do you wanna be a judge in x factor” and Louis is all like yeah sure why not and that’s fine, until he gets there and who is one of the other judges? only harry, looking amazing, older and leaner and more tattoos and tanner and absolutely breath taking but louis is a little shit and all the acts harry says he loves, louis pretends not to and all the ones harry says he hates, louis pretends to love and so it goes on until they get to the live shows and obviously both of them want one of their acts to win so they always argue about everything but ultimately they’re still madly in love so they end up having lots of angry sex back stage in each other’s dressing rooms and one time louis even gives harry an angry hand job under the desk while one of the other acts is performing but in the end neither of their remaining acts wins so they call a truce over dinner which ends in harry going back to louis’ for definitely non angry sex which leads to him not leaving london for quite some time

YOU KNOW WHAT THE BEST THING EVER IS? IT’S SOULMATE AUS LIKE GOD DAMN I HAVE SEEN SO MANY ON FFN/LJ/AO3/TUMBLR OVER THE YEARS LIKE:

  • the one where you only see color once you meet your soulmate (so you don’t know them until you see them), and it goes away when they die
  • the one where you don’t know your soulmate until you touch them
  • the one where you don’y know your soulmate until you hear them speak, or hear them speak a certain word; your name, for example
  • the one where you get the name of the person in their handwriting on your body somewhere at a certain age
  • the one where the first thing they say to you appears instead
  • the one where you get each others’ fingerprints
  • the one where you get matching marks/symbols/tattoos
  • the one where your marks or words that change depending on what’s going on with your soulmate
  • the one with the clock that counts down the time until you meet your soulmate
  • the one where when you sleep you dream of whatever they’re experiencing from their point of view until you find them, or AFTER you find them
  • the one where you can straight up talk to them in dreams until/after you find them
  • the one where you form a telepathic/empathetic link until/after you find them
  • the one where you share extreme physical sensation until/after you find them; if one of you hurts the other one hurts, if one of you is getting lucky the other one gets a little hot and bothered
  • the one where the closer you are to them the more aware of them you become, and you find them playing a hot/cold game; for instance, colors get brighter and brighter the closer you are and fade into gray when they’re too far away
  • the one where once you turn a certain age/one night a year you swap bodies with them for one night and you have a limited amount of time to leave/collect clues to their identity
  • the one where being next to your soulmate can heal you from things people don’t normally heal from
  • the one where only your soulmate can kill you (can you still be killed by age/disease? who knows!)
  • the one where reincarnation is also a thing and meeting your soulmate either unlocks or erases memories or your past lives until the next one
  • the one where in universes with magic meeting your soulmate activates your powers/unlocks more powerful magic

SOULMATE AUS WITH COMPLICATIONS:

  • blind characters who can’t see if the world’s in color or black and white
  • characters like x-men’s rogue who literally can’t touch people; characters who have been through trauma who don’t want to touch people
  • hard of hearing characters like clint barton who can’t hear their soulmate speak without hearing aids/at all or on the flipside characters who can’t speak; maybe it still works in sign language, or maybe it doesn’t
  • people who can’t read/can’t read the language the words on their body are in
  • characters like bucky barnes who’ve lost hands and/or had their fingerprints removed
  • soulmate clocks that time out in the middle of the crowd; there’s an entire craigslist category for finding who else was there that day with a clock that timed out too
  • famous characters speaking to or performing for a crowd and suddenly their world is in color/thier clock times out/etc and every member of the audience pretends to be this celebrity’s soulmate and a cinderella type situation ensues with the finding
  • soulmates playing the hot/cold game and they kEEP MISSING EACH OTHER
  • insomniacs who rarely sleep, much less at the same time/different time than their soulmate
  • soulmate ot3s/ot4s/otmores where you dream in varying people’s povs every time you sleep and get super confused
  • people who get sick or injured and frantically search for their soulmate so they can survive
  • people who need to be in medically induced comas and their soulmates have to stay away so they don’t accidentally wake them up
  • the one where soulbonding is actually a choice and someone chooses to bond with someone they may not know or like to save their lives
  • new souls who don’t get memories of past lives because they don’t have one and panic
  • muggles/people without powers who don’t get them upgraded or unlocked

COMBINATION AUS:

  • the one where you one or both of you have to do all three (see your soulmate, touch your soulmate, hear your soulmate), or all three have to happen at least once between the 2+ of you
  • or it’s completely random how you find your soulmate: one of you gets a name and the other gets a fingerprint, one of you has to hear your soulmate and one of you has to see them, etc; particularly useful if you happen to be blind or deaf
  • same for characters with disabilities/who have “complications”: they get or find a different way of finding their soulmate, not better or worse, just different

THEN THERE’S SOULMATE AUS THAT DON’T HAVE TO CONFORM TO LIFELONG MONOGAMY:

  • the ones where you have more than one romantic soulmate at the same time or you get a new soulmate after the first die
  • the ones where people have multiple soulmates of different types and it’s color coded; a red name/mark/etc for love, a blue one for friendship; for the ones where you start seeing color you get a new one for each soulmate
  • the ones where some people have romantic soulmates and some don’t, and those that don’t are still perfectly happy anyway, maybe in a relationship anyway, maybe not
  • the ones where some people have multiple romantic soulmates who may or may not also be soulmates with each other
  • aromantic or asexual people who have soulmates who are not and they manage to work it out
  • romantic and sexual people who don’t have soulmates but find happiness anyway, either with someone like them or someone not like them

SOULMATE AUS THAT EXPLORE THE RAMIFICATIONS OF SOULMATES BEING A THING:

  • the ones where soulmates are for everyone and get legal aid to help stay together, like if their in-laws try to keep them apart/someone risks getting deported/someone gets drafted/whatever
  • the ones where soulmates are super super rare and TECHNICALLY get exempted from shitty things like “people of different races/the same sex/etc can’t get married/have relations/etc” but maybe still face a lot of prejudice and they fight to get those types of awful laws lifted for everyone
  • agencies that exist to help you find your soulmate or figure out which soulmate thing you have but some of them are just shams, bonus points for this being in a verse where the thing is exceedingly rare to begin with
  • people pretending to be soulmates to take advantage of the laws, for good or ill; the couple who loves just as fiercely as a soulmates who will do anything to stay together, or the shitty people who try to claim they’re mated to people who’ve rejected them so they “have” to stay together
  • tabloid mags photoshopping matching soulmate marks or following big legal cases where someone tries to prove or disprove that they are soulmates with someone else
  • soulmates in universes where they’re a rarity or rare soulmate types like ot3s in dodging government officials because they don’t want to become lab rats
  • people who don’t believe in soulmates until it happens to them, or people who believe hardcore and want to find theirs but they don’t necessarily have one
  • little rituals that make finding your soulmate more likely, like shaking hands with people as often as possible, repeating each other’s names after you’re introduced, etc

just give me alllll the soulmate aus ok, give me people finding each other in spite of complications, give me all the delightful plot twists, give me detailed worlds where this changes the norms

feel free to reblog with sources! (or MORE AUS.) a little over half of these are things i’ve seen elsewhere over time and i cannot remember where they are all from

haha or if you’re into this sorta thing you could just take pity on me and reblog it anyway this took an embarrassingly long time to type up oh my god ;;;;;;;;;
