I had the idea for this in fall '12 and started writing it in summer '13 and you can definitely tell exactly when this is set. I started with All Too Well but it really became something different and bigger, and it kind of encompasses all my favourite AUs and versions of them. So, it's a special fic for me. It's the longest thing I've ever written and it's one of my favourites. I'm actually pretty proud of it.
So, here it is:
(break me) like a promise
Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne/Zayn Malik, past Louis Tomlinson/Zayn Malik.
Louis lives in a sleepy college town, helping his mum taking care of his sisters. Harry's just started school and is working part-time at a bakery he frequents. University/bakery/rock band AU.
