neverending feelings  
So I didn't watch the Alan Carr 1D interviews for the longest time because of reasons. (Longer, boring story: I watched his show at Christmas and everyone on it was genuinely drunk and awkward and Carr himself came off as the biggest dickend in the history of television. Whereas I really enjoyed Jimmy Carr's Christmas special and apparently he robbed the nation? idek.) OF COURSE they are genuinely hilarious, no one needs to be told that.


THIS was pretty much my face at every response of Harry's, from the suave eating of crisps while Liam HID HIS FACE AND ROCKED to rubbing his nose in the world's worst attempt at bashfulness. He is a HOUND. DOG. So that was pussygate, huh? I mean. I MEAN.

yadda yadda Harry Styles, Professional Life Ruiner etc, but I was more interested in the effect of that particular dynamic on Louis. I mean, this tends to be the prevailing assumption among us 1D tinhatters - and OMFG THAT GIFSET IS SO CUTE I GOT SPONTANEOUS LOVE ANGINA - but really? Nah. Harry is louche and a ladykiller and doesn't have to try a single bit, whereas Louis' MO has been trying so hard he practically falls over, and c'mon, he is jealous of that shit! He wants girls to be throwing themselves at him with the end result that Alan Carr mocks him exclusively on national TV! THIS COULD SEGUE SEAMLESSLY INTO THE MAKING OUT I FEEL. I would read approximately one million and five thousand words of Louis being all sulky with Harry because all Harry has to do is smile, but he never smiles at Louis like that, and Harry being confused and then maybe pissed off with ANGST and PINING and STUPIDITY but in the end love puppies.

Bonus flawless video. Editing is perfect! I want 100,391,334 more of these - does anyone have recs?! FOR SCIENCE.


This really reminds me of someone I know and it's killing me because WHO DO I KNOW WHO LOOKS LIKE HARRY STYLES SERIOUSLY

teehee angina is heartburn? Sort of; it's like a mini/pre heart attack. PAIN. IN MY HEART. Basically.

Harry's complete lack of ducksharriet_vane on July 5th, 2012 10:07 pm (UTC)
I avoid all things Harry/Louis so hard I had no idea that Harry was supposed to be pining for Louis. That makes no sense! Harry is the ladykiller with all the self-confidence! Louis is DRIPPING with a desperate need for people to like him! idgi.

The Alan Carr interviews are DELIGHTFUL. Ugh, poor Liam, he was unprepared for those dirty jokes. Poor kid. Pussygate is an ongoing delight, by the way; have you seen the cartoon about them? With Harry's pussy magnet? (A giant magnet that attracts cats.) And then someone threw a plush pussy magnet on stage (a magnet with stuffed cats on it) and the whole band tried to get Liam to say "pussy magnet" and he absolutely refused no matter how much they yelled at him while he blushed.

Tbf, it may be more a case of mutual pining that is corrupted by EBUL MGMT, but there's definitely a sense - from fic - that Harry does a lot or more of the pining. With that in mind, these interviews totally destroy that canon. It's pretty hilarious. That's why I think it'd make a great fic - for anyone you want to ship with Harry, in fairness. For sure, famous people get a lot of play, and I'm not saying the other dudes don't get offers, but people like Harry come only once in a generation. And I could see that creating a great conflict for a story - why would he settle for just one person? Even if he loves them and they love him etc etc btw Harry ate my brain. Sorry.

Is that the video about their Adventurous Adventures? Or something else? I have to say, I loved the earnest way he bullshitted Carr about buying cats for Winner Dude's mother. HAHA LIAM. I happened upon a Sugarscape article about them discussing porn, and at one point Liam says YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THAT, YOU'RE 17! Which, just, SO, LIAM? He is totally about four hundred years old. I love him. That anecdote is the best anecdote.

Oh man I really need to rewatch those with that in mind. :D

And yes, Louis is so desperate to be somebody and be somebody for someone and be special and noticed etc - I never quite understood why people kept saying that Harry is "whipped"? I think he indulges Louis a LOT, but because he decides he wants to and not for any other reason.

Harry doesn't strike me as the sort of person who'd do all the running, whereas Louis - once he's in, he's all in. You know? It's adorbs. :D

That vid is too cute. I love them and hate them at the same time - they are so fun, but there is ALWAYS a clip I have not seen before. Which should be IMPOSSIBLE with the amount of time I have spent watching footage. How many more hours do I have to give up in order to feel like I have made it through everything??!

Also, yes!! I would read every single word ever of fic about Louis being the sulky one!! My headcanon!Harry is not always sulky and pining, but I think maybe that is written a lot because Lou is the one with a girlfriend, so it sort of automatically casts Harry as the one longing for attention.

The amount of new canon we get all the time is CRAY. I mean, every show has new footage of them being adorable idiots - even though if one thing gives me the motts, it is people's cameraphone footage. Eep.

I can see that! Although it seems to me Louis has a girlfriend, and he's just so delighted that someone loves him enough to be his girlfriend, yay! A pretty normal response. Whereas Harry is all, why buy the cow when I'm getting all this milk for free... OR SOMETHING. Not that he objectifies women, though. That's not what he's about. :D

ICUTHAR HARRY STYLES ICON DO NOT THINK I DON'T ♥ Also, that vid is an excellent vid, it is SO HARD to find good vids in RPS fandoms (in my experience) but this one is A+.

Also, I demand to know where you are at with la la la idk if this is secret or not, the thing wot you sent me a picture of last week. :D? :D?

Wow, Helen, your icon looks suspiciously like those dudes from One Direction! Were you hijacked? Or ... HAVE YOU BEEN SUCKED IN BY THE MIRACULOUS MADNESS? It's only a matter of time...

This is possibly as far as that will go...

I don't know anything about One Direction, but that bottom photo looks to me like a young Mick Jagger, or maybe Nicholas Hoult (the guy from Skins).

So true! Mind you, I don't know either of those guys either. My life: not that fabulous.

Ugg, that video, my heart. <3<3

Also, the Alan Carr interviews were some of my first introductions to 1D and well, look what happened. I need to go back and rewatch them.

There's something so weird about that show to me - maybe it's because the whole point of it is that Alan Carr doesn't really have any respect for his guests, they are simply there to provide fodder for his mockery, and it makes the whole entertainment value purpose of the paradigm really transparent?

Or maybe I have painted one too many walls today. FUMES, WHEEEE.

I think the Alan Carr interviews were my first exposure to One Direction? And I switched to something else halfway through, because I didn't see the appeal. o_O I don't know if I'm judging my former self or my former self is judging me.

The point is, those interviews are DELIGHTFUL. Harry Styles is a CHEEKY BASTARD, I love it.

I would read a million words of that! I think Harry gets branded with the whole whipped/pining thing because Louis comes off as the ring leader in some ways? And Harry follows his lead a lot. Idek, their relationship is so interesting to me! fiddleyoumust pointed out in a comment that Harry was probably a weird kid in his early days, a little charming but off-beat, and suddenly there's this guy who thinks he's THE SHIT. Not to mention, the rest of the world. So he probably had a moment of disconnect on how to deal with everything, all these people who suddenly want him! And then my feelings are that he'd probably be all THE MORE THE MERRIER and have a lot of fun with it, while Louis is EXACTLY how you described him! ... I feel this comment got away from me.

I am both judging your former self and envious of it. HARREH! So ingenuously disingenuous! How can you not love it.

Nono, I agree! See, fame caught Harreh &co at just the point where most people realise their grand dreams of the future and what adulthood is like start to merge into something more realistic. So Harreh probably told himself he was awesome a lot, and unlike in most people's lives it TURNED OUT TO BE TRUE. And he's like, SWEET. Whereas Louis maybe had to fight harder for most of what he got, so he's warier.

OMG THIS IS ALL I WANT IN THE WORLD. Pining and boys being stupid are two of my favorite things.

And I could talk for DAYS about how Louis tries SO HARD to make everyone like him and how all of his antics are just a cover for his insecurities and how every time he talks about how he was so relieved to be put in a group on X Factor because he never would have made it through on his own it gives me ALL THE FEELINGS and and and. I just have a lot of thoughts about Louis, ok? I've been watching a lot of X Factor videos lately because I'm working on a primer and bb!Louis is KILLING ME. He is just a bundle of feelings. And he acts ridiculous a lot of times to distract from that, but ugh. MY HEART.

That said, I DO also enjoy the idea of Harry pining over Louis (like in that gif set) because it's awfully adorable and I can't resist Harry's little face, but the truth is that it's definitely more likely that if someone is pining, it's Louis. Of course, there could just be MUTUAL pining because they are both stupid, I like that idea too!

I AM REALLY ENJOYING THE PROSPECT OF THIS PRIMER. :D I love primers. I think I already know more than is sane about this band, but I care not! Tell me more, internets!

Hell yeah, this. No one acts like that if they're fully comfortable in their own skin. People who give no fucks do not give a fuck if people notice them or not. That's the difference between the two of them. Harry is this beacon-light sort of person that everyone wants to either do or be, or maybe both, whereas Louis is run of the mill hot with a side order of issues. THIS IS A GREAT FIC IDEA WORLD. DO THAT FOR ME.

He is the most beautiful creature I ever beheld.

But look!

There's one of his sisters.

He's very pretty too.

And, I daresay, very agreeable.
