What are your reasons for thinking they broke up? I kinda feel the same way, but I don't have an exact time period but it's normal for me for couples to have rough patches. Especially with them who were together all the time in regards to work.

*Self aware disclaimer that nobody truly knows anything. This is my opinion. I am not forcing said opinion on anyone else. Don’t be a dick*

Overall Opinion

Harry and Louis broke up in 2013 because they were in a toxic situation due to outside forces (management, stunting, media). They were still in love and it was a mutual decision because they knew their situation wasn’t healthy. There wasn’t a big blowout fight which is why they could still be around each other during the second half of TMH tour. They were miserable without each other. Neither of them were dating other people. H&L got back together in early 2014 and Louis solidified that with the dagger tattoo. They have been together since. 

Timeline for H&L breakup (June 2013 - January 2014)

June 14, 2013 - Don’t Let Me Go was released 

  • By this point in the narrative, there was the bullshit tweet, Never Ending El Stunting, Swift December Stunting, and H&L’s blatant decline in interactions
  • The song itself is a preempt breakup song that Harry wrote himself. I believe Harry wrote it before they broke up and decided to release it once they were officially over

*Harry wrote two ghosts in either 2013 or 2014. Given my cannon timeline, I think it was June 2014. The song is reflective of how their relationship started out effortless, then twisted into something that was strained and nearly unrecognizable. I think Harry gets so emotional performing Two Ghosts because it is essentially reliving the time that he and the love of his life had to breakup*

June 24, 2013 - Louis got the rope tattoo 

  • Louis got the infinity rope tattoo with the cut ends in hope of him and Harry getting back together. Sort of a “What we have is infinite and if life allows it, I’ll be able to come back to you.”

July 1, 2013 - Harry got the cross tattoo in NY

  • I believe Ever Since New York was based off of this point in time because of the lines, “And I’ve been praying, I never did before. Understand I’m talking to the walls. I’ve been praying ever since New York.” 
  • This song is the epitome of the pain that swift stunting brought Harry. It was demonstrative and it was the lowest of point for Harry during the breakup because not only was he stuck in a fake-relationship, he didn’t have his real one anymore, either. Since I believe that Louis and him broke up on good terms, I think that’s what the line “Must this hurt you just before you go?” is in reference to. Even though they knew it was the right thing to do, it still hurt

*I think Harry wrote Meet Me In The Hallway in reference to the following months after being broken up. It is the hopeful reconciliation song. I imagine it reflects Harry’s last hope that both of them could agree that they’re better together, regardless of the situation.*    

*Speculation of Back To You based off of Louis’ comment, “It’s about that one person that no matter how hard you try, you keep coming back to.” It completely fits a narrative of them breaking up, but in the end deciding that they’re worth fighting for*    

September 10, 2013 - Over Again performance 

  • This performance was absolutely heartbreaking. Over Again is the breakup song that begs for another opportunity to make things work. I think it was an exceptionally emotional time for them because while they still needed to sort out their heads, they wanted to be together. 

September 30, 2013 - One D Day

  • This is where I feel like they started to make the turn back into a relationship, mainly because of the Little Things performance. It was wild to watch Harry openly sing it to Louis, his body fully facing him and everything. Then you had Louis who looked a little anxious, kind of like, “Wait - You? Am I getting the right signal here?” I don’t know how to explain it very well, but it felt like a monumental shift as a larrie who was patiently waiting for them to get their shit together.   

January 11, 2014 - Harry got the anchor tattoo

  • This is when I think they got back together. Harry got the anchor in line with the rope to say, “I’m here and I’m not going anywhere.”

*There were still some difficulties when it came to jealousy, I think mostly on Harry’s behalf due to events such as the, “’So kiss him again, just to prove to me that you can..’” tweet on July 13, 2014*

November 25, 2014 - The dagger tattoo

  • The reason why I think Louis waited so long to get the corresponding tattoo to the rose was that they wanted to make sure that they were in a healthy place to be together. A dagger and rose emblem literally means fighting for what you love. I took Louis getting the dagger as a final reassurance to their relationship/Harry. It was a, “Fuck what other people want. I want you and I’m going to fight for us. No matter what, don’t doubt that.”


Louis and Harry have been through more shit than anyone could possibly imagine, but they sorted through their difficulties in a healthy manor and are currently together. 


Guillermo del Toro Gómez born October 9, 1964, is a Mexican American film director, screenwriter, producer and novelist. In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as the gothic horror film The Devil’s Backbone (2001), and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and more mainstream American action movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II (2002), the supernatural superhero film Hellboy (2004), its sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008), and the science fiction monster film Pacific Rim (2013). His latest film, The Shape of Water, won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and is scheduled for an American release on December 8, 2017.

In addition to his directing works, del Toro is a prolific producer, his producing works including acclaimed and successful films such as The Orphanage (2007), Julia’s Eyes (2010), Biutiful (2010), Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011), Puss in Boots (2011), and Mama (2013). He was originally chosen by Peter Jackson to direct The Hobbit films; he left the project due to production problems but was still credited as co-writer for his numerous contributions to the script.

Del Toro’s work is characterised by a strong connection to fairy tales and horror, with an effort to infuse visual or poetic beauty.  He has a lifelong fascination with monsters, which he considers symbols of great power.[3] Del Toro is known for his use of insectile and religious imagery, the themes of Catholicism and celebrating imperfection, underworld and clockwork motifs, practical special effects, dominant amber lighting, and his frequent collaborations with actors Ron Perlman and Doug Jones. He is also friends with fellow Mexican directors Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu, collectively known as “The Three Amigos of Cinema”.

When del Toro was about eight years old, he began experimenting with his father’s Super 8 camera, making short films with Planet of the Apes toys and other objects. One short focused on a "serial killer potato” with ambitions of world domination; it murdered del Toro’s mother and brothers before stepping outside and being crushed by a car. Del Toro made about 10 short films before his first feature, including one titled Matilde, but only the last two, Doña Lupe and Geometria, have been made available. He also wrote four and directed five episodes of the cult series La Hora Marcada, along with other Mexican filmmakers such as Emmanuel Lubezki and Alfonso Cuarón.

Del Toro studied special effects and make-up with special-effects artist Dick Smith. He spent 10 years as a special-effects make-up designer and formed his own company, Necropia. He also co-founded the Guadalajara International Film Festival. Later in his directing career, he formed his own production company, the Tequila Gang.

In 1997, at the age of 33, Guillermo was given a $30 million budget from Miramax Films to shoot another film, Mimic. During this time, his father, automotive entrepreneur Federico del Toro, was kidnapped in Guadalajara. Del Toro’s family had to pay twice the amount originally asked. The event prompted del Toro, his parents, and his siblings to move abroad. In an interview with Time magazine, he said this about the kidnapping of his father: “Every day, every week, something happens that reminds me that I am an involuntary exile [from my country]

Del Toro has directed a wide variety of films, from comic book adaptations (Blade II, Hellboy) to historical fantasy and horror films, two of which are set in Spain in the context of the Spanish Civil War under the authoritarian rule of Francisco Franco. These two films, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, are among his most critically acclaimed works. They share similar settings, protagonists and themes with the 1973 Spanish film The Spirit of the Beehive, widely considered to be the finest Spanish film of the 1970s.

Del Toro views the horror genre as inherently political, explaining, "Much like fairy tales, there are two facets of horror. One is pro-institution, which is the most reprehensible type of fairy tale: Don’t wander into the woods, and always obey your parents. The other type of fairy tale is completely anarchic and antiestablishment.”

He is close friends with two other prominent and critically praised Mexican filmmakers Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu.[15] The three often influence each other’s directorial decisions, and have been interviewed together by Charlie Rose. Cuarón was one of the producers of Pan’s Labyrinth, while Iñárritu assisted in editing the film.

Del Toro has also contributed to the web series Trailers From Hell.

In April 2008, del Toro was hired by Peter Jackson to direct the live-action film adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. On May 30, 2010, del Toro left the project due to extend delays brought on by MGM’s financial troubles. Although he did not direct the films, he is credited as co-writer in An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies.

On June 2, 2009, del Toro’s first novel, The Strain, was released. It is the first part of an apocalyptic vampire trilogy co-authored by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The second volume, The Fall, was released on September 21, 2010. The final installment, The Night Eternal, followed in October 2011. Del Toro cites writings of Antoine Augustin Calmet, Montague Summers and Bernhardt J. Hurwood among his favourites in the non-literary form about vampires.

On December 9, 2010, del Toro launched Mirada Studios with his long-time cinematographer Guillermo Navarro, director Mathew Cullen and executive producer Javier Jimenez. Mirada was formed in Los Angeles, California to be a collaborative space where they and other filmmakers can work with Mirada’s artists to create and produce projects that span digital production and content for film, television, advertising, interactive and other media. Mirada launched as a sister company to production company Motion Theory.[19]

Del Toro directed Pacific Rim, a science fiction film based on a screenplay by del Toro and Travis Beacham. In the film, giant monsters rise from the Pacific Ocean and attack major cities, leading humans to retaliate with gigantic mecha suits called Jaegers. Del Toro commented, “This is my most un-modest film, this has everything. The scale is enormous and I’m just a big kid having fun.” The film was released on July 12, 2013 and grossed $411 million at the box office.

Del Toro directed “Night Zero”, the pilot episode of The Strain, a vampire horror television series based on the novel trilogy of the same name by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. FX has commissioned the pilot episode, which del Toro scripted with Hogan and was filmed in Toronto in September 2013. FX ordered a thirteen-episode first season for the series on November 19, 2013, and series premiered on July 13, 2014.

After The Strain’s pilot episode, del Toro directed Crimson Peak, a gothic horror film he co-wrote with Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Cox. Del Toro has described the film as “a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story”, citing The Omen, The Exorcist and The Shining as influences. Del Toro also stated, “I think people are getting used to horror subjects done as found footage or B-value budgets. I wanted this to feel like a throwback.” Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam starred in the film. Production began February 2014 in Toronto, with an April 2015 release date initially planned. The studio later pushed the date back to October 2015, to coincide with the Halloween season.[

He was selected to be on the jury for the main competition section of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Del Toro directed the cold-war drama film The Shape of Water, starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Shannon.[29] Filming was set to begin on August 1, 2016 in Toronto,[30][31] but del Toro confirmed on his personal Twitter account that filming would begin on August 15, 2016.[32] Production was officially announced to have begun on that day and wrapped twelve weeks later, the film is currently in post-production.[33] On August 31, 2017 the movie was screened and premiered in the main competition section of the 74th Venice International Film Festival where it was awarded the Golden Lion for best film, making Del Toro the first mexican director to win the award[34][35].

On July 21, 2016, it was reported that del Toro will retire from producing for projects that he isn’t creating or directing himself.

At the D23 Expo in 2009, his Double Dare You production company and Disney announced a production deal for a line of darker animated films. The label was announced with one original animated project, Trollhunters. However, del Toro moved his deal to DreamWorks in late 2010. Trollhunters was released to great acclaim on Netflix and “is tracking to be its most-watched kids original ever

Last year, I did a Top 100 moments post from the Take Me Home Tour in 2013. That one was illuminating in its consistency and was a great way to revisit a year most of us do not think of with great fondness.

This list was different to put together. It was less about proving consistency (though that is still apparent) but more about enjoying the little looks and exchanges we still get to see. While they were certainly more restricted in their interactions on and off stage (at least after the astounding South American leg),  overall, 2014 was a much easier and more enjoyable year than the previous one in a lot of ways, for them and for us.
