After the crushing, grey of the last few weeks with all the shit that’s been going on, this is has been the most heady, freaking-near-hallucinogenic breath of pure oxygen life could have given me. I look like a total third wheel because I’m shorter, but look at us!!  Three friends matching in velvet and red lip. <3  
I have never felt so valued and so content than after a whole invite-only evening with your hugs, confessions & conversation.  I love you, I love you, I love you @taylorswift <3 A decade was so worth the wait.

For the cynics who always laughed when I called Taylor a long-distance friend to me… Well, shame on you now. I got an invited to Taylor’s house for my Friday The 13th, what did you do?  

This week, just so you guys know, I’m overwhelmed in the best sense. It’s all because of you and all of the amazing, insane, wonderful, loyal acts and feelings you’ve expressed not only this week but the past year, the past 10 years. I’m not trying to get up here and bore you with my feelings but I’m about to be 28 and there are so many of you here tonight that have been hanging out with me online, or listening to my music for 10 years, 12 years, 6 years, whatever it is. I am trying so hard to process the way that I feel about what we’ve done this week. It’s just different this time, it just is. I used to feel happy and just jump around. This time I’m so happy and I’m so proud of us. It’s a different kind of happiness. It’s like a contentment and a pride that I have for you and how close we are and that you guys would come here and went to the pop-up show yesterday. That was crazy. It’s all just so much to take and I am so happy to see you. I just hope you had a good time tonight so far. I’m going to say hi to you guys, I’m going to take pictures, and that’s what’s gonna happen next. I don’t even know what to say. I’m so happy that you like me, thank you for being here. I’ll see you in a minute!
—  Taylor at the Taylor Swift Now reputation celebration (x)

reputation: track by track - first impressions

1. …Ready For It?

This is just the perfect album opener and perfect tour opener, of all the songs released before November 10th this was my favourite. The production is perfect, lyrics clever and rippled with meaning, made all the better by the beautiful music video. This is also a great opener because I can promise you, you are not ready for what is to come.

Favourite lyrics: ‘every love I’ve known in comparison a failure’

2. End Game (feat. Ed Sheeran & Future)

I was so excited for this when I first heard rumours or a Ed Sheeran collab. Sadly I find it quite underwhelming. It doesn’t feel like an organic collaboration to me, futures rap break feels forced and unnecessary and Ed doesn’t really feature that much… it’s catchy as all hell though and while overall I’m not obsessed with the song, Taylor’s Verse towards the end is the best, which is ironic.

Favourite lyrics: I swear I don’t love the drama, it loves me

3. I Did Something Bad

This particular bop has me lit as well as shook. I mean….THE LYRICS!!!!! This is by far my favourite song on the album. She did not come to fucking play and I am here for it. Here, taylor reclaims her ‘mistakes’ and lets the world know she’d do it all over (and over and over) again (so fuck you) Part of me feels like this would have served as a better lead single than LWYMMD… catch me in the club begging the dj to play this.

Favourite lyrics: ‘If a man talks shit then I owe him nothing, I don’t regret it one bit ‘cos he had it coming’

4. Don’t Blame Me

This isn’t what I thought it would be and I’m OBSESSED. The one-two punch that is IDSB and then this, is a knockout. The album could end here and I’d shower it in Grammys. Her vocals here are the best on the album. The lyrics are so self aware and SHARP. The balance of emotions amazes me… this is angry and sexy and cute and young yet mature and thoughtful… The message is clear as-well. Taylor is ruled by her emotions like every normal human being, so you can’t really blame her. This isn’t victimhood, it’s a beg to let her live her goddamn life.

Favourite lyrics: ‘lord save me, my drug is my baby, I’ll be using it the rest of my life’

5. Delicate

TRACK 5!!! You can just tell by the title that this song will ruin you (and it will). I love the concept of this song. It’s the sonic representation of cute and DELICATE and I think that the Imogen heap style production is the perfect match to the lyrics. This is at the point where everyone was against her.. her ‘reputation’ had ‘never been worse’ but she finds herself enchanted by him, despite the delicate situation she’s going to go for it and ask him if it’s ‘chill’ that she likes him’. What a cute smol bean GAHHHANWJSUS FEELS

Favourite lyrics: ‘my reputation’s never been worse so you must like me for me’

6. Look What You Made Me Do

I always have a weird relationship with Taylor’s lead singles, somehow I feel like they usually don’t fit into the album and certainly don’t serve as a symbol of the album as a whole. Maybe that’s just me? I love this song like I love every trashy pop song, it’s fun and catchy and I do think it’s incredibly clever (and gave us the best music video in the history of music videos) but I’m not sure how well this song will stand the test of time. For me, it joins shake it off and WANEGBT in the ‘great but easily skippable’ category.

Favourite Lyrics: ‘CAUSE SHES DEAD’

7. So It Goes…

Ahhhhh… I thought that the ‘…’ meant this would be a continuation of sorts from RFI or perhaps a bookmark at the middle point of the album to signify a turning point. If that is the intention then I’m afraid I don’t see it. The lyrics are good and I understand that it’s about feeling like things are finally ‘falling into place’, but other than that I don’t really understand the song… that’s not to say I think it’s a bad song, but I don’t feel like it contributes much to the album - it feels a bit same-y and unnecessary- sorry! Maybe it’ll grow on me?

Favourite lyrics: ‘hostage to my feelings’

8. Gorgeous

It’s as good as it was when it was first released. I can’t quite place why but it feels kind of out of place here on the album, sonically and thematically/lyrically - however it remains a BOP and I don’t care who is in my way when I kick my leg out on every *ding*!

Favourite lyrics: ‘I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us, he’s in the club doing I don’t know what’

9. Getaway Car

This is SO jack antanoff - which is incidentally the best and worst thing about this song…. I’m almost certain this samples Bleacher’s song ‘Don’t Take The Money’ (which I love) but I’m here for a Taylor album and while lyrically it definitely is her, I feel like this song would be better suited as a feature of Bleachers album. However, saying that, this song is a bop and I think Taylor for providing another great road trip tune. (Side note: do I hear Lorde’s vocals in the background?!?!). I love love love the lyrics and story here as-well, story wise it’s one of the strongest on the album and I can’t wait to here Taylor’s backstory for it because I. Need. Answers!!!

Favourite lyrics: ‘x marks the spot where we fell apart, he poisoned the well, I was lying to myself’

10. King of My Heart

This is most definitely not what I expected. By the title I thought we would get a cute lil ballad about how joe rules Taylor’s heart or something, but nopppeee… honestly I’m not sure if I like this song yet - at this point in the album I was really feeling like a ballad was necessary…. however I digress…. I really like the verses but I think this is my least favourite chorus on the album. To me it just doesn’t work, however I think an acoustic version could be much much better so I shall keep my fingers crossed for that.

Favourite lyrics: ‘your love is a secret I’m hoping, dreaming, dying to keep’

11. Dancing With Our Hands Tied

This song hits my chest in a certain way… the way her vocals are layered… the relentless beat and perfect melody… I want to dance to this at a rave at 2am drunk out of my mind. It’s lyrical gold dust, it’s as deep as a well but touches you like a feather and if you told me that one day taylor would make what is essentially a dance track I would have choked. Is there any genre this girl can’t do??? What a beautiful line as well… ‘dancing with our hands tied’. Only taylor could come up with that. (Side note: this song reminds me of fellow queen of pop Carly Rae Jepson and now I NEED a collab)

Favourite lyrics: ‘I loved you in secret’ ‘we love without reason’ ‘25 years old, how were you to know’ ‘deep blue but you painted me golden’ ‘you said there was nothing in the world that could stop it, I had a bad feeling’ [ALL OF IT]

12. Dress

SO. TAYLOR. In case you didn’t know before, you know now, taylor is a grown woman and she likes sex (on hardwood floors no less). This song should be played over 50 shades of grey the entire way though (then it would be a good film). At this point in the album, there is an element of ‘okay we get it taylor, you really wanna shag joe’ but if Taylor wants to give us an album about sex then you best believe I’m gonna thirst for it. In typical Taylor fashion, it somehow manages to be classy despite essentially being about having her clothes ripped off and screaming ‘ahhhh’ on hardwood floors. The way she carefully sings each syllable and builds the tension to the chorus is something only she could do - It’s not subtle, it’s not the best on the album, but I’m not gonna lie when I say it got a little hot in here. Thank god I’m seeing my boyfriend tomorrow….

Favourite lyrics: ‘out secret moments in a crowded room, they got no idea about me and you’ ‘all of the silence and patience, pining and anticipation, my hands are shaking from holding back from you’

13. This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

(Queen of long titles) HOLD ON TO YOUR WIGS LADIES. If you thought LWYMMD was savage, then you are definitely not ready for this. I wasn’t. I didn’t know what to expect from this song but it certainly wasn’t THIS. I am obsessed and I will fight anyone to the end of time who doesn’t agree this is Taylor’s most savage song (yet). Who’s been teaching her how to throw shade over the past 3 years?? Also why was I not invited to this Gatsby party? This song sounds like ‘it’s a hard knock life’ from Annie and now I’m just picturing a Taylor Swift jukebox musical, but anyway…. While there are certainly references, this song isn’t about anyone specific… it’s about the world in 2017. People look to hurt and tear people down more than they do build up, even when they open they’re homes/lives to you…. Taylor Allison Swift isn’t gonna take it anymore. You woke the dragon, don’t blame her. It’s simple, you break something good then you don’t deserve it.’ If you’re going to act like a child then you can’t have nice things. You treat someone like shit, you don’t deserve them.

Favourite lyrics: ‘did you think I wouldn’t hear all the things you said about me’ ‘feeling so Gatsby for that whole year’ ‘so I took an axe to a mended fence’ ‘If only you weren’t so shaaaadddyyy’

14. Call It What You Want

Taylor Swift is in love with a beautiful MAN and you can call it what you want, she doesn’t care. He stayed. He loves her for her. Nothing else matters and I AM DEAD.

Favourite lyrics: ‘they took the crown but it’s all right’ ‘all the liars are calling me one’ ‘you don’t need to save me, but would you run away with me… yes’

15. New Years Day

Don’t. Touch. Me.

Okay so I had literally no idea what to expect from this, from the way secret sessioners TS we’re talking I was thinking maybe All Too Well but happy?

However, no, taylor decided to kill me with this HAPPY BEAUTIFUL MAGIC DIAMOND. I love love love how personal this is. You can just tell that every lyric, eveything she’s singing about is just her remembering. hArDwOoD FlOoR!!!!! We may never know the story and we will never understand the particular feeling - and we don’t have to. The emotion of this song doesn’t come from taylor making us identify with the same feeling, it’s too specific for that. This is a song for the fans, those of us that, above all, just want to see taylor happy. This could be the last song she ever releases and we wouldn’t mind, Safe in the knowledge that Taylor finally found the one. Forevermore.


Favourite lyrics: ALL. OF. IT.

In conclusion:

She’s done it again, but then really, what did we expect? I stan a legend


hi @taylorswift!!! i know that you have no idea who i am so hello i’m lyndsi and i’ve had this blog since 2012 and i am so excited to be seeing you BOTH NIGHTS (august 31st & september 1st) in minneapolis! worth the nine hour drive!!! 😁

i’ll be at the first show with my boyfriend (in the 2nd picture lol) who only started listening to your music when we started dating. he loves you now (he hasn’t said that but he always tells me to “put whatever you want on, like taylor swift” he doesn’t want to admit it). and fun fact we decided that we were “official” the day that reputation came out soooo…!! we can’t wait to see you. and night two i will be with my best friend @thedirtydirtycheats who i met because of you!

night 1 (08/31): section 323, row D, seats 7-8
night 2 (09/01): floor section N, row 25, seats 15-16

i love you so much and can’t wait to see you! ♥
(also, just throwing this out there but my birthday is on the 28th aka 3 and 4 days before the shows and a hug from you would be, you know, an okay present! not all i’ve wanted for 10 years or anything!)


As many of you probably know, I am a mega supporter of @taylorswift and I have grown up with her since the age of 12. Her music and her inspiration got me through a lot of hard times, through my eating disorder, anxiety and depression. I recently got her lyrics “today is never too late to be brand new” tattooed on my bicep as during treatment for anorexia I played the song Innocent on repeat all the time to get me through the hard days. 

I am lucky enough to be seeing Taylor on tour this summer in Columbus, Louisville and Indianapolis. I would LOVE the chance to give her a huge hug and let her know how much she has helped me, and how much she has inspired me. I am hoping she is lurking somewhere on Tumblr and will see this post or one of my other posts, so that I can thank her in person.

I know that I will be absolutely okay if I don’t get her attention, I just wanted to give it a shot on here. See you this summer, Taylor, and I can’t wait to take a picture with you! Also, I have bangs now :) 

11 years ago, I heard this song called Tim McGraw on the radio and loved it. I looked into who sang it and really liked it. I bought this girl’s first album when it debuted and played it until I memorized every word. I was only 10 years old, but I felt like I related to this girl so much in her songs. I’ve done it for every album since.
The first time I ever saw this girl in concert, I sobbed the whole time. I was in awe that the woman who wrote what I felt was the soundtrack of my life was standing right there in front of me was overwhelming. I’ve seen her every tour ever since.
The first time I ever picked up a guitar was because of this girl. I wanted so badly to be able to play her songs and maybe someday write some songs of my own. I’m a terrible songwriter and I stopped playing for a while, but I did it because of her.
The first time I ever experienced heartbreak, I played her songs on a loop because I was too embarrassed to cry in front of anyone but myself. I’ve cried to her lyrics in a hard situation ever since.
This girl has given me some of the greatest friends I’ve ever asked for. Growing up, you always here “don’t trust people you talk to online”, but I can honestly tell you I wouldn’t have the friendships I have today without Taylor and the internet. I’ve made countless amounts of friendships ever since I joined Tumblr and Twitter and I’ve gotten to meet a lot of them. Jessie is one of them. We met on Tumblr 4 years ago and bonded and have been friends ever since. On Saturday, she called and told me she had an exclusive opportunity to go to some Taylor Swift event and she wanted me to be her plus one. Neither of us had any idea if we’d meet her or if she’d even be there, but I bought a plane ticket 10 minutes later and was in New York Sunday night. Monday night, we met at an abandoned building and got onto a charter bus to this “top secret location” which was given to us by Taylor’s management and ended up at Taylor’s album release party. We still had no idea if we’d even get to meet Taylor or even see her. They told us that we were at this party to watch exclusive footage from Taylor Swift NOW and after showing us 3 never before seen videos, Taylor herself walked out and informed us all that we’d get to take pictures with her.
I can never thank Jessie enough for letting me experience this with her and I can never thank Taylor enough for how much she’s shaped me into who I am today.
This all still feels like a dream.

Dear Taylor,

I don’t normally ever write long posts or any posts at all really and I’m not expecting this to get any notes or attention but I just want you to know how much you mean to me and I love you unconditionally, you bring so much happiness into my life and I just need you to know, so here goes…

My name is Paige, I am 23 years old and I have been a fan since forever! I can remember the very night I was introduced to you, back in the days of Bebo I had an online friend who told me I should give you a listen, so I did, and that was the night things changed. I went onto youtube and searched for Taylor Swift, now I can’t remember which one I picked first, but I know I definitely watched the video for Picture To Burn and Our Song as I have those videos burned in the back of my mind, I was hooked.

Fast forward to 2008 when Fearless was released, I was so excited for this album, I have vivid memories of being on vacation in Disney World, Orlando and on the first night we went to Downtown Disney (or Disney Springs as it is now) and I dragged my parents to the Virgin Music store that used to be there, and I searched high and low for the album, eventually my dad called me over and there in his hand was the masterpiece! We spent the rest of our 3 week vacation with Fearless on repeat! I can remember being in the hotel room listening to Radio Disney and they played White Horse and I got off the bed and stood in front of the TV just belting the words out, but the best part was the fact that my mom and dad were singing along too!!

2009 was the beginning of an incredible journey. My dad came home one night from work, and told me he’d managed to get tickets to see you in London, I was so excited!! May 6th 2009, Shepherds Bush Empire in London, there was me, my dad, my mom and my childhood friend, we had seats literally at the back on level 3, I was a little disappointed but that didn’t stop me from having the time of my life! I said this was the beginning of an incredible journey because 6 months later in November, I saw you again at Wembley Arena, this time my friend and I had floor seats, and my mom and dad had seats further back. I can remember being in awe, there is nothing like being at a Taylor Swift concert.

2010 was the release of Speak Now and I had that damn album on repeat for weeks! I drove my friends and family crazy!! So Speak Now World Tour tickets went on sale and I wasn’t sure whether I was going to go, as much as I love concerts and seeing you perform I just couldn’t decide whether to go or not, even though you were coming to Birmingham, UK which is the closest city to me. About a month before the concert, I was with a group of friends and we all agreed that we wanted to go, so that night we booked tickets. The show was incredible as always and my friends gave me the funniest looks when I was the only one singing along to anything from before Speak Now!!

External image

2012 was a rough year for me, I’d started Sixth Form in Septemeber 2011, after being at the same school for about 13 years with the same people, it was time for the big move. I hated every minute of it! However I can remember the release of RED and how exciting it was. I had it playing every morning on the bus to college and on the bus home. Now 2013 when tickets for the UK leg of the RED tour went on sale… I was there ready and waiting at presale but no luck, I was gutted, but I gave it another go during general sale, but again no luck. Then you added extra dates… which meant I had another chance, and I did manage to get 2 tickets on the floor, I was over the moon! I had originally planned to go with my boyfriend at the time, but unfortunately we broke up in the January, so I ended up taking my dad, which was a bonus because he’s incredible and he loved your music! So February 10th 2014, me and my dad made our way down to London, to the O2. We got to our seats and I was so so happy, they were so close! I remember seeing Andrea walk past but people were swarming her for photos so I stayed in my seat. During 22 when you got carried by your dancers, you went right next to me and I touched your hand and I think I died in that moment!

External image

Now lets fast forward to the release of 1989, I was at a completely different stage of my life at this point. I’d left education, had a completely new group of friends and I actually socialised. So anyway I fell in love both with the album and with a boy. In fact I took him to Dublin with me to see you, and he actually enjoyed it more than he wanted to! 

External image

But before that I saw you in Manchester with one of my best friends, who would have no idea who you are if it weren’t for me, not that I’m taking all the credit! Honestly it was one of the best nights ever, we just had the time of our lives and I will cherish that night forever because it was so nice to share it with someone so special. Just like Dublin. December 2014, you performed at the O2 again for Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball, I was there, and you were amazing, even though you were sick! 

External image
External image

I saw you again 3 years later, at the Jingle Bell Ball in 2017, I travelled all the way down to London even in the horrendous snow, which my mom was not happy about, she was so worried! But it was so worth it!!

External image

 This now brings us to reputation, again, I am in a completely different stage of my life, I have been through so much, and one day I hope to be able to relate to “I’m doing better than I ever was” I definitely believe I’m on the right track. So I have a different group of friends in my life now, I wouldn’t even call it a group. I have a handful of friends, but I prefer it this way. Over the years I have been to many concerts and over time I started going on my own, which brings me to the rep tour, I travelled to Swansea to see you at Radio 1′s Biggest Weekend! I then travelled to Manchester to see you both nights on my own, however I did meet some incredible people! I then saw you at Wembley night one, and honestly I died when you sang So it goes, it is my favourite off the album! Now remember when I said that seeing you in London in 2009 was the start of an incredible journey? well here’s why, Today is July 31st, which means in two weeks you’ll be performing in Tampa, FL and I will be there! I’m travelling on my own all the way to see you! I’m honestly so excited!! And the best part is that I’ll be doing it all over again in Nashville! I’m literally flying in the day before the concerts and flying home the day after, some people may think I’m crazy, but honestly nothing makes me happier than watching you perform, and being able to do that in two of my favourite places is just going to be incredible!!

External image

So I guess I’ll be seeing you soon!

TAMPA - Sec K row 32 seat 1

NASHVILLE - Sec P row 32 seat 13!

P.S. Tampa will be my 13th show!!

I am so glad Taylor turned off the online/offline setting. She should be able to come online and just enjoy tumblr without everyone jumping on her begging her to release TS6. It’ll come when it comes. We don’t have any right to Taylor’s time or attention and that’s why it’s so special when she does interact with us. Especially with all the talk about the upcoming trial, she must feel so overwhelmed with it all. She’s got a right to a safe space, an escape, and if scrolling pictures without interacting with us is what she wants to do we should respect that. We’ve been so lucky and fortunate to have Taylor, and I include myself in that. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her influence. But she is a /person/ who has feelings and wants just like us. And I think the thing she wants most right now is PRIVACY.

hi @taylorswift ✨ i’m sierra and i have been a fan of you for about 11 years now and my 6th show—first rep tour show—is coming up soon! i’m seeing you in kansas city on september 8 and i would love to thank you for always being there for me and giving me so many amazing memories (cue pictures above)!! i’ll see you real soon, i love you SO much 💛🌟

(p.s. i am BEYOND excited for the show, it’s everything i need and more right now)


Went to Target today to buy a second set of the magazines so one pair is for ripping out pictures to hang them on the wall and the other pair is for looking through. I also really wanted the gray t-shirt. My collection now looks like this. Give me another day and I am sure it will be twice its size👌🏼

Please please please reshare! 🙏🏻 I can not believe we are 5 days away from seeing Taylor! The picture on the left I took at the Speak Now New Orleans show, I didn’t know I was pregnant yet! Allie is now 6 years old she is just as big of a fan as I am! We can’t wait to dance the night away with Taylor! This past year my life has really been flipped upside down but the fact that I get to see Taylor with my mini me has really been the light at the end of the tunnel. Praying we get the chance to meet Taylor! We will see you in New Orleans! Sec 140 row 3 seats 22&23

@taylorswift @taylornation

7 years. It’s been 7 whole years since this beautiful, self-written masterpiece debuted. I am forever awestruck by Taylor’s brilliance, and this album displays it perfectly. These songs are so beautiful, and the whole album is a work of art. I am so grateful to have these songs and you in my life, Taylor. @taylorswift Thank you for giving me a reason to smile every day.

Hello, I’m back on tumblr because I met @taylorswift and let me tell you, honey, I rose up from the dead! My biggest dream came true and I’m going to attach this picture to my resume because it’s my greatest accomplishment. In fact, instead of submitting my resume to job applications, I’m just going to submit this picture alone. I know I’ll be hired on the spot. Anyways, I can’t fucking believe I met Taylor! I was in shock for 2 days and then it finally hit me and I cried like 3 times in one day out of pure gratitude. I’m so grateful that I got to hug the woman I’ve looked up to for 11 years. We went to the concert in Pasadena on May 19th to celebrate my birthday and this is the greatest gift I could’ve ever received. Taylor was the most genuine, kind, and GREATEST SMELLING PERSON I HAVE EVER MET!!! SHE LITERALLY SMELLED LIKE SHE HAD JUST BATHED IN A RAINBOW!!! She is a goddess, a queen, the hunty of all hunties. I love her so much and I hope I get to hug her again one day because when she hugged me, she absolved me of all my sins. I am cleansed. I am a new woman. The old me is dead and buried with the old Taylor. The ability that she has to connect with so many people through her music is the most amazing thing to me and I hope everybody else that loves her as much as I do gets this chance one day because it felt like heaven. Pictured from left to right: Bonnie and Joy (our new swiftie soulmates who we met that night, but now have an incredible lifelong bond with because of this) A LEGEND, then me, and then my best friend @i-am-the-rebel-spy. Thank you @taylorswift for being everything I dreamed you would be and a million thanks to your mama for choosing our group for rep room! Hold on to the memories they will hold on to you!!! @taylornation

anonymous asked:

When did you start seeing/believing that Louis and Harry were a thing?

Or, The Tale of Sleepless Nights

The first time I ever paid attention to One Direction was because I liked Night Changes. I saw the music video and thought, “Well, it’s pretty hackneyed– too bad,” and it didn’t jibe at all with the loose, acoustic, folk-influenced song I was hearing.

Then I read that the boys wrote their own music, and felt for sure that they were dabbling in it. I was biased, I admit. I looked into it a bit more, and then I ran into @freddiesmyqueen’s Larry Stylinson videos.

I was not buying it. Selective editing, slow motion, heart-rending love songs… I was convinced it was all a storm in a teacup. Cute head canon, though. And cute guys.

[I am a huge @freddieismyqueen fan now, although back then I took everything with a grain of salt]

Then I went back and looked at pictures of Harry with his ladies, especially at the Taylor Swift NYC photos. They just looked… staged. No way would a celebrity walk in and out of hotels with a toiletry bag, in front of paps, like he’s about to get laid. How tacky was that? He wasn’t happy or unhappy; he just looked trapped. Well, celebrity set-ups happen. What are ya gonna do? It’s promo. Pretty gross, but whatevs.

I stumbled into this:


Again, not every piece was convincing, and a lot could be explained/ interpreted differently. So I wanted to look at root evidence, from the boys themselves.



And the tweets broke my heart. I looked into the songs they were writing, their Instagram and Twitter posts, Harry whole IG in 2013-2014– all pretty damning. I understood Harry’s personality by then. I knew he couldn’t be doing it for publicity, or Larry baiting.

In 2015, I was confused by BG– what it was, why it was. I had moments when I was sure H&L weren’t together anymore, especially when Liam’s interview came out.

I went to the OTRA Chicago concert and sat pretty close to the walkway. And I heard and recorded for myself, Harry singing, “And all HIS little things.” That wasn’t hearsay. It was a declaration I witnessed myself, in front of 70,000 people. He didn’t give a damn. And he was amazingly beautiful– they all were.

The bears were incontrovertible proof, for me, that the two of them (with help) were behind them. No doubt in my mind. Too many coincidences, too much work, and too much earnestness. Baiters don’t go through all the trouble of educating people about LGBQT history and the history of entertainment closeting. Think a sound guy would do this for kicks? Think a sound guy even knows what Stonewall is? Or the lyrics to Cherry Wine? Or can coerce 1DHQ into tweeting for Harry, in that oblique way he does?

Since then, there have been many subtle signs that they’re still going strong. Every piece of information is not a firm proof on its own, but taken in context, there’s too much evidence to ignore.

Believe me, every day I wish I didn’t know about Harry and Louis. I wish I never heard of them. Then I could finally get a good night’s sleep.

Footage of CH during the video dailymail*co*uk/tvshowbiz/article-4829242/amp/Calvin-Harris-opts-not-clap-ex-Taylor-Swift-s-video*html

I AM SCREAMING AT THE CHOICE OF PICTURES THEY USED FOR THIS they had a hundred images to choose from, i am telling you now what’s up about track Track 2 taylor 

also, ignoring it then not clapping? Even katy clapped and she’s a petty queen. Childish, sorry. 

Every time I look at my phone.. I see this picture. the most wonderful picture ever. My daily 11:11 wish. My only happiness since 2006. My only constant in life.

I remember all those people at high school telling me that Taylor doesn‘t care about her fans.
That she will never know who I am.
That she will never care about me.
I remember that I never cared about the hate.
„She will never meet you. Why would she?“ were the words I heard the most.

But look at us now ❤️
