anonymous asked:

What did LOUIS sign to HARRY after her couldn't make his solo??

Wow, you really challenged my non-existent tagging system in June. :)
Found the post though!

June 1st - Manchester (WWA tour)


“Not a big deal”

“Sad one”




Harry misses his last note during moments because he was ill, and Louis telling him not to hit his high notes

My niece is deaf and has cochlear implants, she can hear and speak now but also knows sign language and reads lips.
I asked her to tell me what Louis is saying. Using the UK sign language, he is basically saying with affection, “Not a big deal, Sad One”.

Yep! She also said, “He called him ‘Hazza’ but I thought his name was Harry?”…….. I died.


Watch: Nyle DiMarco reminds voters what’s at stake on election day for people with disabilities

[Nyle DiMarco signing] You can keep this ad muted if you want and keep scrolling past it. But if you’re still listening to my voice, please know that there are a lot of people out there without one. Among the 50 million Americans living with a disability, many don’t have the ability to work, to travel, or to do countless other things you might take for granted. So this November, please consider voting for the only candidate with a plan to change that.

Frankfurt Book Fair

queenofairndarknesss said: Hi Cassie, me and my friend are intrested about Frankfurt Book Fair. We heard that you are going to attend it and our question is; are you allowed to tell us if you will attend the first three days (wed-fri) or the last two (sat-sun)?

I’ll be there over the weekend. I asked my German agent and she said:

I don’t yet have confirmation on exact event dates. But you will be there over the weekend (those are the days that are open to the public). Here is the rough itinerary:

Arrival: Thursday, October 12

Book Fair activities/events Fri-Sunday 

Possible event to be confirmed on Monday

So you can see it’s in the planning stages, but I will be in Germany, in Frankfurt, and I will be doing events during the Book Fair and possibly in another city on Monday. I always enjoy touring Germany and will be happy to be back!
