Twelve of the Best Larry Stylinson Fanfictions So Far

Larry Stylinson: the romantic pairing of Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles from One Direction. It’s a pair that some may assume to be purely fictional. But is it really? My answer to that will come in a future article. But, for now, please enjoy some fictionalized accounts of the Larry Stylinson relationship.

Picking only twelve stories was difficult, as there are so many beautiful pieces out there. Fan fiction tends to get a bad rap in the media with many people simply assuming it’s all over-sexualized fantasies of teenage girls. While, yes, these do exist, there are so many that are better than any book available for purchase currently.

I encourage you all not only to check out these twelve incredible stories but also to do some research of fanfiction on your own. Don’t let your prior expectations determine your future behavior.


1. Fanfiction: “Fading” by tothemoonmydear

Platform: Archive of Our Own

Word Count: 202,393

Summary: “Louis knows about beauty; the combination of qualities that pleases the aesthetic senses. He creates that combination every day in the garments he designs while studying fashion at uni. The cut of the design, the color of the fabric, the intricacy of the stitching; it all comes together to create something beautiful. When the science student with the long legs and dimpled smile agrees to model for him, Louis decides he’s found beauty personified. Harry just thinks Louis needs someone to show him how beautiful he is.”

Note: The fic I reread every September, “Fading” is by far the most beautiful and emotionally draining one on this list. It will leave an everlasting impact on you; that I can guarantee. Cuddle up in a blanket and get the tissues ready. You’re going to need them for sure.

12. Fanfiction: “And Then A Bit” by infinitelymint

Word Count: 158,824

Summary: “‘We’d like to give the fans what they want.’ Magee states, placing his hand on the table in front of him and leaning forward. ‘We want to give them Larry Stylinson.’ Or, take a parallel universe where Louis and Harry were never together, mix in a two year hiatus and an impending comeback, pour in a dash of lost fans, two tablespoons of strong friendship and a Modest! employee with a good idea. Add a squeeze of pretending to be a couple, lots of kisses and a tattoo or two. Stir. Serve: the mother of all publicity stunts. (Aka Harry and Louis fake a relationship for publicity. Eventually it becomes a lot less fake and a lot more real.)”
