brotherly ever after / larry
After a while, Harry speaks with his words croaked out. "Why can't I kiss you whenever I want to? It's. . . it's not fair."
Louis opens his eyes, looks at Harry and frowns. "Because, princess, we're-"
"Don't," Harry immediately cuts him off, too hurt and vulnerable and fragile now at this point to even handle that cruel, stupid word: brothers. Their true relation. That one thing that's keeping them like this-- this guarded and forbidden. Hiding and miserable.
or the one where harry and louis grew up together as brothers and thus it's not at all appropriate for them to be more than just that. they became more than just that, however.
