For the past 89 chapters, the fanfic has followed Aven trying to figure out the dark mystery surrounding Harry and his past.
She, and readers, have spent a lot of time theorising over what the international superstar is hiding, ranging from mafia involvement and secret pregnancies.
However, the truth came out in the most recent chapter when Aven uncovered the death of a family in Washington.
She took the theory to Harry, asking him if that was his real name.

The character used this event to fake his death and start anew with a fresh identity, Harry Styles.
Sebastian also revealed he was American, not British.
Fans have become furious by this reveal, after realising they weren’t ever reading One Direction fanfic at all, but regular fiction.
Instead of being named Harry Styles in the book, however, his name was Hardin Scott.
The novel was subsequently made into a movie with the same name and released in 2019.
The film starred Josephine Langford as Tessa Young, the protagonist of the story, and Hero Fiennes Tiffin as her love interest, Hardin.
The film made a staggering $ 48 million on a $ 14 million budget.
After We Collided’s success has sparked talks of further sequels, two of which have been greenlit and are expected for release in the next few years.
After and After We Collided are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video now.
