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

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.

Ahh, see, I have a friend who's planning a fic where it turns out Harry is terrible in bed because he's never had to try because he's just so fucking charming, and Liam accidentally tells him, and Harry's like, "No, I'm great, everyone says so," but when he calls all his exes they're like "....well, the thing is......" and Harry has to like, LEARN to pay attention to other people. It's just always fallen into his lap!

Yeah, the Adventurous Adventures, which the boys LOVED and met the guy who did and offered to do their own voices and stuff. Adorable. Harry is really determined to keep that lie going, it's so cute. I believe this text interview is where I first fell in love with Liam and his totally doomed attempts to keep Harry from incriminating himself. He's simultaneously 14 and 40, it's amazing. When the gifs of him refusing to say pussy magnet popped up on tumblr I laaaaaaaaaughed, he's just like "And here's a... um, a magnet for Harry," and the entire band badgers him relentlessly. Why is it so cute when they are assholes?

Zayn: This is going to make me sound like a geek, but I read a book called On A Wing and A Prayer. I think it was about World War I.
Niall: Michael Buble's Onstage, Offstage.
Liam: The script of An Inspector Calls. That's the only one I've ever read.
Harry: You've only ever read one book in your life?
Liam: Yes.
Niall: Me too. It was called: How To Kill A Mocking Bird.
Liam: Wasn't it just called To Kill A Mocking Bird?
Harry: It's confusing because you're 200 pages in and the bird still hasn't died.

I believe my very first (maybe second??) post about One Direction was that very quote.

Fuck you, Harry Styles.

I believe we googled "on a wing and a prayer" and the first thing that came up was a romance novel.

YESSSSSS I am all about this fic. I know the phrase 'greatest thing in the world' gets just a tad over-used on the internet, but I genuinely think it will be the closest example of Harry's actual psyche since you wrote him. :D

I think it's cute because it's exactly what teenage boys do? And they keep on doing it even though they are teenage boys living the dream? Like, they are 'just enough of a bastard to be worth liking,' to quote Good Omens. (And when is it not a good time to do that? ... maybe when you're around One Direction, I guess. Who possibly cannot even read.)

I am encouraging her to actually write it, because it's just brilliant. Everyone has always been excited just to be around Harry naked! No one has ever called him on his selfishness. (Which, mostly he just doesn't NOTICE or TRY very hard, he's a nice kid.)

I love how unpolished they are. I love that they tease each other and are assholes to each other, but then when one (or all of them) are crying on stage someone will come over and hug him and say "I love you."
