AU: Louis is the leader of a group hunting down whatever they can to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Harry joins thinking he’s got nothing more to lose; willing to do anything to stay with them.
"So what makes you think we’ll let you run with us, kid?"
The snort that erupted from Louis’ mouth made his blood freeze again, being hit by the realization that he was so far out of his comfort zone, that this was so far from safe and so incredibly far from normal.
"Begging doesn’t really work around here."
So he channeled every ounce of fight he had left in him, every little bit of anger that he’d felt when he lost everyone he’d ever loved and projected it into one sentence.
"Because you need me. Because you need every single person you can get. Because I’m not afraid of you and because I’ve seen the way you look at me and you know you want me here."
"Just don’t fuck it up."
