all the awards to his twitter

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on this robot harry?For me it's so annoying he can't even pretend to be excited for his own tour, his social media presence is such a turn off

Well I’m sort of digging myself a grave with this one, but since I haven’t seen a post I can fully agree with, here we go. Disclaimer, I actually study this at uni. I was the Social Media Manager for the planning and putting together of a fashion show, on all platforms. I just handed in last month a 6-months marketing plan that was based around social media promo. So I do have a bit of knowledge in this area. I am by no means an expert, but this is my future field of choice, so I like to think I’m at least educated.

The situation isn’t as black and white as people have put it so far. All I’ve seen is “he’s horrible at engaging with fans” and “he doesn’t own you shit so stop complaining”. The answer is a very big grey area in which Harry’s actual social media presence fits perfectly in my opinion. First of all, there’s two main templates we studied for marketing purposes this year, Gaynor Lea Greenwood’s promotion suggestions (2009) and Burcher (2013)’s Paid, Owned and Earned media concept. Long story short, the first one is your traditional marketing campaign and the second one relies more on social media and advertising on it. Now, I think Harry’s team went for the more traditional approach, and let me explain why.

Harry started distancing himself more and more from twitter and Instagram ever since the hiatus started.Even before, during OTRA and MITAM promo, most of his tweets were promo stuff, lyrics I’m not sure we fully understand even now, charity work, promoting friends or tweeting about holidays/important days or events. His fan interaction has been low for quite a while, and I’m honestly baffled people are acting like this is news. Looking through his Twitter in 2015, there are some tweets to fans, yes, but they’re very sparse.I counted about 12 in 5 months, most of them in September, when Perfect came out, and around the release of MITAM.His tweets were mostly thanks to fans for various awards and nominalisation, promoting the songs/album, some lyrics and, without fail, after every concert he tweeted a thank you for coming.

It felt more personal than what we have now (tho in all honesty, his tour hasn’t started yet and if we eliminate the OTRA tweets it’s already a different story), but Robot Harry has been a thing then, and people were riding along with it instead of condemning it to the extent they do now.But, the thing is, Harry didn’t have the entire burden of engaging with the fanbase like he has now.Louis, Niall and Liam always took turns in taking the lead in replying to fans and interacting with them, which allowed Harry to do his part and everyone was mostly happy.

And yet, I personally don’t feel this frustration many people feel. I think it’s quite interesting actually. A bold move that wouldn’t work for other artist whose career relies on people who live and breathe social media (maybe Beyonce or Adele, but they are in another league). I was very intrigued by Harry’s statement in the Behind the album video, in which he said that there was a time in his life when people knew everything about him, and he didn’t like it.He has been overexposed since 2012, his personal life splashed across tabloids, fake relationship or not.And now he disappeared for a year (and has been retreating into himself for at least 2) and he wrote this mysterious™ album, trying to see if people can listen and understand it without knowing much about the current him. In this context, having an album that surrounds itself in mystery and then doing 4 Q&As on twitter and 3 livestreams sends…extremely contradictory messages. I can, and will fault his team for presenting a dual image of Harry that sometimes makes 0 sense, for handling a lot of things so poorly, and for the entire Carolina mess, but I will say that his social media fits this old school mysterious rockstar image they’re showing of him. I also think his actual reason is very personal and very real, and I respect the fact that he didn’t compromise this choice he made for promo purposes.

His promo relied on more traditional channels. TV and radio appearances, print magazines, and most importantly, the secret gigs. Now, I’m sorry, but I felt entirely more connected to Harry running across London at 8AM in my pyjamas than by any twitter spree he’ll ever do. I never did this before. This reminded me of the stories my dad told me, of queuing up for days in front of the box office so he’d get the tickets when they went on sale. It was very old school and it worked for me. It was a phenomenal experience, something I will never forget. And he did this for us. All profits went to charity, he didn’t do this for money. And while I know this was for a few selected cities and a handful of lucky fans, it was intimate and it was special and I think everyone, regardless if they were there, or vicariously living through pics and videos, felt a connection to Harry. We got emotional on his behalf when he sang with his idol on stage 2 weeks later, you don’t do that for someone you have no connection to.

Now, the actual reason I’m happy with what we’ve got is that it is genuine from my POV. Liam is the perfect candidate for a comparison, since he also took a bit of a break from social media (not as heavy as Harry’s, but he definitely wasn’t as active as Louis or Niall) and his promo is as textbook as it gets. He slowly, but surely increased his activity since January, a few more tweets, a few more pics on Instagram.A big turning point was April when he posted 13 pics on Instagram, compared to 8 in March, 4 in February and 3 in January. His Twitter went through a similar process.Now, the moment he started posting more, I knew his music was gonna be out soon. It’s pure marketing. You start your campaign weeks before the actual launch, it’s only natural. Unless you want to drop it as a surprise, but that’s another discussion. Actually Harry did it too, with the TV ad, but that was ruined by the info getting leaked beforehand and everyone getting pissed off by that so whatevs. Now, Liam is going for the approachable celeb route. Streams, Instagram stories, snapchat, tweeting fans, loads of pics, videos with popular Youtubers. It’s nice and about as well handled as it gets (apart from that weird video release earlier than it should have been and Liam just generally being a bit…odd?off?idk how to explain it, but a lot of people feel the same way from what I’ve seen). It fits with the image Liam is going for, it aims at the right target audience. He’s not trying to enter a new market like Harry is. He’s consolidating his place in the current market from what I’ve seen (and I’ll admit I haven’t followed his promo as closely as Harry’s). Trying to imagine Harry doing this sort of promo doesn’t really work for me.

Niall has been present on and off social media ever since he came back from his trip last year. Literally, if I pull up the calendars people have been making each month, he doesn’t get more than a handful of days without doing something, so it’s unfair to compare him to the others, since he’s always around and posting and doing stuff.

Louis deserves a better team and I won’t have anyone uttering anything else in my presence, and yet somehow, despite Niall’s constant presence and Liam’s textbook engagement, I’ll never feel as connected to them as I feel to Louis. Louis’ tweets are the perfect mixture of absolutely adorable fan service (“our year” 😭😭) and some of the things he’s passionate about (tv shows, fashion, footie/sports). His promo for JHO was….I have no words for it and I’m gonna have a rage fit if I start thinking about it, but his overall persona is charming and endearing when he’s posting things himself. He created a real communication channel between us and him and he knows how to use it when he needs to send a message (warning selfies anyone?Only you?). There’s an actual analysis of Instagram stats that shows he’s the number 1 male account in engagement and overall likes and that doesn’t surprise me one bit. Louis is a smart businessman, he has a loyal fanbase who is here for him through thick and thin.

And on top of everything I said so far, none of them owe us anything outside the promo bubble. Apart from shoots, songs/albums/tours info and official announcements, they do not owe us anything. If they chose to share a picture from their home, that’s their personal space, and while it’s good for PR, amazingly good in a society that thrives from the feeling of knowing everything about everyone (like what’s your fave’s breakfast and how’s their cat is doing), it’s still a part they can choose to keep private and no one should be entitled to ask for more.

Have you seen Adele’s Instagram? It gives you this illusion of closeness to her, with make up free selfies, funny poses and landscape shots. Too bad literally everything is from touring and other official appearances right? There’s one picture of her home, and that’s to celebrate the end of the tour. Harry sort of did the same with the booklet pictures. He allowed you into his personal space in a controlled manner, just like Adele did. Only he did it in a different way. His promo is just different and you have to think a bit outside the box to see that he actually did a lot of things other artists do. Just a bit differently. Was it perfect?Fuck, no. Was it as bad as many people make it look like?Personally, I don’t think so. It was just different and people are entirely justified to see it as a good or a bad thing. I see it mostly as a good thing. Mostly.

“I don’t think people realize how this $80 million contract came about. It’s not only about a record deal for 3 albums. The break-even is 5 million units PER ALBUM. That includes marketing such as videos, shipments, exclusives etc. I’m guessing Harry will give huge promo which I’m really happy to see. No doubt it will include an Apple Music exclusive.

I mean they were willing to pay $25 million to be able to get the digital selling rights. Harry is high commodity. I’m hoping Target gets on this. How much are they willing to pay for bonus songs? 1D proved to be great physical sellers with MITAM. I have to check again but MITAM sold around 100k or more in just physical retail. Most artist can’t sell physical besides Adele and Taylor Swift.

With 3 days of sales, MITAM sold 103k in physical copies. And this was because Target ran out of stock. With the same marketing tactic, Harry could do the same. So 200k is pretty much guaranteed.

We’ll have to see how the first single does to get a prediction as well as preorder numbers. Then count SEA and TEA (meaning Stream Equivalent Albums & Track Equivalent Albums). MITAM accumulated around 57k units with TEA & SEA. And that was without a so called "hit single” Since then, streaming has exponentially grown and will continue to. We can hope for 80k in TEA/SEA with Harry’s debut.

I think 100k TEA/SEA units are possible but that would lower the pure sale forecast. We could be looking at debut around 300k more or less. I know we shouldn’t compare but this is the closets comparison we have so forgive me. Zayn’s MOM did 157k units and 112k were pure album sales and 45k were TEA/SEA. “IF” Harry does the average of Zayn and 1D numbers then that’s 257k pure sales and 51k with SEA making a debut of 308k units.

But like I said, streaming is growing and pure sales falling so this is just an estimate. A 300k debut is not bad at all. I doubt Harry will pull 1D numbers but I could always be proven wrong. Depends on his marketing team and how well they promote him. Also how the general public takes a liking of him, it would be nice to see different demographics become fans of Harry.

So we have 300k debut, and then DUNKIRK. The movie in itself will serve as promo for Harry. During interviews they will ask about music and vice versa. So Columbia gets exposure for while Harry is out doing press tour for Dunkirk without them lifting a finger. Amazing how Warner Bros & Columbia will save money and earn more to Harry’s rising “star” status. Huge profit for both.

And of course Harry benefits from all this. Like 1D music is huge in Japan but not so huge in China by comparison. BUT China is one of the biggest MOVIE markets in the world. If all goes well, Dunkirk grosses well and the general public in China can buy Harry’s album. Of course music fans of Harry will be watching the movie so both companies win.

This is just the music and acting. We still have TOURING to consider. 1D gathered their biggest revenue here so it’s possible it will be the same for Harry. I mean if he can gross 100m touring on his own that is HUGE profit. Not to mention possible collaborations because you know people will want to work with Harry. And hopefully get a collab with a fashion line.

That adds to Award show appearances (AMA/BBMA/OSCARS/BRITS/BAFTAS/GG/VMA), galas and more. Look at all that profit and exposure. At the end of the day, Harry’s profit and Columbia’s will be more than 80m. Exposure = money in this industry kids.“

The Bus 1 Conspiracy.

On August 10, 2013, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik from the band One Direction paid a visit to Los Angeles’ Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor. The pair got two sets of matching tattoos that morning, one set being of a tic-tac-toe boards. More famously recognized is the other set of matching tattoos, the words “Bus 1.”

Pictured: Zayn and Louis, bros for life with their matching tattoos.

The two were very fond of their matching tattoos, showing them off in interviews and being all cute.

Look at their lil arms.

While this whole matching tattoo thing is adorable as hell, what if the meaning behind these tattoos isn’t? Let’s take a deeper look, shall we?

When asked what the meaning of “Bus 1″ is, the pair said it was the bus where the two of them spent a lot of their time while on tour. Rather than stay in the hotels with the other boys, Zayn and Louis opted to stay in the tour bus most of the time. Hm…

Bus 1′s interior. Quite swanky, eh?

Now the real question is: What exactly happens on Bus 1? Why are the two so keen on spending so much time in there? Or… is it a cover up for something even bigger?

Well, if you say “Bus 1″ really fast, it sounds like “bust one.” That’s right guys… Zayn and Louis are undercover cops and are busting the crooks left and right.

Which one plays the good cop and which one plays the bad cop?

Bus 1 not only was a hint towards their side job, but it also was where Zayn and Louis could discuss tactics with each other without the other boys around. The information they handled was classified and for the eyes and ears of official police officers only.

2/5 are actual cops. The other 3 are just goons.

Being an undercover police officer isn’t as easy as it seems. It takes a lot of covering up, which is evident since we didn’t even discover their secret lifestyle until now. However, you need to be mysterious and have a love for danger, which are qualities emulated by the two boys.

Hints about their profession revealed in the “Steal My Girl” music video, directed by Danny Devito.

While the boys have been sneaky covering up their true profession, there have been quite a few slip ups. And no, we are not talking about Harry slipping on stage, we are talking about Zayn and Louis screwing up and giving us the hints that helped piece this all together.

1. Zayn seen riding in police car. The driver is not visible, but we do not need evidence to know that Louis is definitely driving that vehicle.

Zayn with a rolled down window, exposing himself to the elements and exposing his secret.

2. Louis seen talking with a fellow police officer. He’s wearing a trench coat, which is basically a red alert for anyone trying to hide a secret.

Why are trench coats always so mysterious? What’s under that jacket, Louis?

3. Louis likes handcuffs. He must’ve dropped a pair of them on stage, so fellow bandmate, Harry Styles, lends a helping hand to give them back. Were we supposed to see this? Oops!

We promise it’s not as kinky as it looks… or is it?

4. Self-explanatory. These girls are locked up, thanks to the Bus 1 Team.

They probably tried to touch Harry’s curls, leading them to a life sentence in prison.

5. Louis was spotted driving a police boat in London, taking One Direction on a police guided tour through the waters.

Only police officers know how to drive boats, so Niall was shocked to find out that Louis had this skill.

6. In the Zouis weed video, we hear Louis referring to the “popo.” This was quite the slip up, considering Louis is an undercover cop. He must’ve been so high that he forgot about his secret.

Joint lit, happy days.

7. Zayn has many tattoos besides “Bus 1.” One of them is of a checkered flag.

Zayn Malik, man of many tattoos.

Where have we seen this mysterious pattern before? That’s right, on the hats of British police officers. 

Zayn accepting a police award in his checkered hat, matching his flag tattoo perfectly.

Zayn and Louis were pulling a 21 Jump Street scenario on us this entire time. If anyone was to accomplish it, not surprised it would be these two. The dynamic duo works best together.

Even in his dreams, Louis turns to Zayn for backup.

We are entirely unsure as to what their mission was, but we suspect it had something to do with the shady blond one. We tried reaching out to Louis and Zayn’s reps, but they were too preoccupied in a twitter fight with each other. Even with all of this evidence, the Bus 1 conspiracy remains

UNSOLVED.

Jimin wrote in fancafe saying he felt awkward because getting the award feels surreal. It's obvious he was nervous about the whole situation and that's why he looked so tense during the show. this explains why Yoongi wanted to be next to him all the time even when they were leaving you can see how he wants to walk next to jimin twitter(.)com/mochimin/status/866501240812732416

this video saved my life?? and i saw what he wrote 💔 it was clearly not an easy time for him and the fact that yoongi didn’t leave his side the entire night is rly telling of how important they are to each other,,, i know we know this already but its always so nice to see,, i hope they’re celebrating they deserve it

THE KEY TO LOUIE SUPPORT: LOVE LOUIS

I’ve been thinking a lot about how quickly the Louie side of the fandom adopted Steve Aoki and our complete rejection of James Arthur. And it’s actually startlingly simple: Steve Aoki showed, from the word go, that he genuinely loves and respects Louis Tomlinson. He came in to our lives by flying across the world (skipping winning an award) to perform Just Hold On with Louis to honor Jay. Then he started speaking. And we learned that he’s a great guy. But we never would have cared without his apparent love for Louis.

Contrast this with James Arthur who talked shit about Louis and 1D in the past, who’s made all sorts of problematic statements, and now thinks that a Twitter follow is going to garner the same support. You forgot one thing: we’re elephants with receipts. You don’t get to talk shit and expect us to forget. We wont.

BONUS POINTS to Steve for continually talking about how awesome the fandom is and how any artist would kill for this kind of support.

  • so, basically hoshi is like your best friend
  • but a really happy one that doesn’t let you talk shit about people
  • you and hosh have always been cheery siblings, and your parents adore you guys for it
  • even if you aren’t a happy-go-lucky person, soonyoung has enough happiness for the both of you
  • and hoshi is always willing to talk, so if you’re ever at a family gathering, you can always sit near hoshi and he’ll talk if you don’t want to
  • he’s also really good with kids, it’s insane
  • like when you were in your crib, he would always be near you watching you, unless he was really young too
  • then when you were like 3 and he was however old he is when you were 3, he would always hold your hand and take you around the zoo or park and point out everything
  • and later on, you two can recreate the photos
  • just really frickin sweet and cute
  • and whenever it’s you two, it’s always laughter and smile
  • basically hoshi is the happiest bean
  • and whenever you’re feeling pressed, he’ll always cheer you up
  • like that one time in seventeen tv that makes me cry every time when dino is kind of sad, and hoshi tries to cheer him up
  • so whenever you’re down, he’ll sit alone with you and tell you jokes and make you happy
  • so there’s probably minimal fighting incase soonyoung thinks of some really bad dorky joke and he really needs to tell you 
  • he can also be really chatty, so you’ve learnt to deal with that
  • and he’s probably one of the least protective members
  • like, he’ll always be so supporting of you, and if you want to date someone, he’ll always watch out for you
  • he’d also support you to follow your dreams, so whenever you have self doubts, hoshi can tell, and will immediately start to encourage you
  • also introducing you to seventeen would be so fun
  • so basically it would go like this,
  • he would bring you backstage to one of their performances and he’d be like, this is my little sister/brother,
  • and mingyu or jun were like, ‘cute’ under their breath and hoshi dIDN’t EvEN GeT MAd hE jUSt SaID, ‘yes they are’ and gave them a 10:10  smile
  • basically v v v positive
  • but 10 hour 10 minute boy isn’t always happy, and he probably wouldn’t let it show, but you would know
  • and say if you were to become an idol too, you and hosh would take dorky photos at awards events
  • imagine all the articles
  • and all the fans would know you even if you weren’t an idol
  • maybe because of your twitter or instagram, since whenever you and hoshi got the chance to meet up you would take photos and all his fans adore you
  • you’re like the mum/mom of carats and there’s like an inside joke that the fans love you more than hoshi
  • and when you and soonyoung hang out it’s usually to like a park or somewhere outside the house
  • so one time you went to an amusement park with hoshi and i feel like hoshi is the kind to have a really bad facial expression on rollercoasters, so best believe you bought the photos and posted them online
  • you also probably have a group chat with the maknae line it’s LiTLItLIT
  • and another time you hung out he tried to teach you some seventeen choreo
  • and maybe you know the choreo maybe you don’t, but you probably ended up on the floor crying to minghao about how hard it was, unless it was easy, then you and hosh fought to see who could do it better
  • and one time you went karaoke with hoshi and had a battle of who could sing shinee better
  • tl;dr hoshi is the coolest brother, you’d always joke aroud and have fun. 
Don’t forget your phone...

Ha!  This is something that I always have to say to myself because, indeed, I usually forget my phone. When I don’t have my trusty little i7, I feel so disconnected from those I love.  What if there is an emergency?  What if one of my sons needs to talk to his mommy?  What if my husband needs to have “how to run the washer” instructions again?

Well, we are a very connected society.  Email, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.  What if we went a few days without that connection?  Probably would be very good for our well being.  But if you are like me, you can’t take the chance.  Even when you are at the podium accepting an award for your acting skills as well as your country of birth.  Of all the lovely pictures of Cait from last night, those of her at the podium, really struck a cord with me.  Actually, besides the drink in one hand, her phone was not apart from her all night.  She didn’t even try to conceal it in most of the photos.  And that’s okay with me.

All the phone does, in my opinion, is tell us that she is remaining connected with someone who is very dear to her.  Maybe when she went to the podium she had a connection open with someone so that they could at least hear the announcement, introduction, and hear her speech.  Why not?  What a great idea.

If my logic is near correct - that open “phoneness” - is just her saying “wish you were here” to someone she cares for.  If my logic is another “NOPE”, then who knows?  Other than the Queen herself.  Sometimes, especially during  this latest shat storm, my marbles are in constant rolling movement.  You decide.

As for me?  I’m still shipping.  The decisions Sam and Cait are making are not what I would make, but it is THEIR LIFE - not mine. They are magic extraordinaire when together, and that makes me smile.  No one is as brilliant as Cait is when that ginger is by her side.  You cannot overlook how alive they become when side by side.  Brilliance like that, is very rare.  They could start their own universe.

🎙CALLING ALL MADI SCOTT AKA ZETHU DLOMO FANS 🎙🎙

Your attention please. It has come to my attention, Ms. Dlomo is the target of very concentrated and intense “hate speech” and other rhetoric on Twitter and Tumblr. I visited @LongLukeArnold aka Long John Silver’s account (to spread the #Joadi love) and saw all manner of evil directed at Ms. Dlomo by SilverFlint fans. It’s heartbreaking. I especially felt uncomfortable for Mr. Arnold, who plays Madi’s love interest on the show. His feed was filled with hate for his co-star, when all he asked was we flood Tumblr with John x Madi. What he got was Silver & Flint. 😱 Over and Over and we hate Madi/Zethu.

Although, I am unable to confirm. Sources say, prior to Ms. Dlomo’s making her own Twitter Account private, Ms. Dlomo posted her personal religious beliefs on HER OWN account. Someone took offense and began a “homophobic” smear campaign, which explains the SilverFlint Movement. These individuals have made it their mission to destroy any professional satisfaction, the award winning actress may get from playing Madi. And it appears TPTB are bowing to the pressure as well. Can anyone show me where Ms. Dlomo has been featured in a Press Junket or Con? Is she even in the pictures? Despite playing a significant role in the Show’s final season?! Sad. Especially, when TPTB had a potential cash cow in featuring a WOC. Minorities control style, culture and What’s hot! We Cosplay too! (Fact: see Music. Fashion. Hair. Film. Small Business growth & development..etc). With women supporting this show… But I digress.

As a person who grew up in a religious home, with gay family and friends; Hell, I was a Fag Hag and Beard before I even understood what those terms meant! 🤣 I know the pain my Black brothers and sisters endured because of who they loved and they would NEVER stoop to the dirty depths these folk are wallowing in.

I find what the SilverFlint faction and others are doing to Ms. Dlomo just as appalling as what so called “Christians” do. Currently, I see no difference between the two.

The best way to soften a heart towards your plight is to show love and to educate. Not steal, kill and destroy.

So, if you are so inclined to be an agent of change, please let’s make Ms. Dlomo’s and Mr. Arnold’s final season special. Let’s show the Black Sails fandom, what love and appreciation looks like ( because ain’t no way I can do what they do, naked even) 😜via tweets and posts and whatever you do best. 😍

i randomly started thinking abt namjin during the after party, being slightly drunk and still shaking after the show, and being to caught up in each other to give much notice to notice anyone else and lowkey grinding on each other and softly kissing each other's necks and im not okay

I’m just imagining, Namjoon standing in a corner, oddly quiet for someone who’s just won a billboard award and is now at some after party, western artists all around him. Jin walks up to him and asks him what’s wrong and Namjoon looks at him, looks around him, lets everything that has happened settle in. They came all the way to LA. They attended the BBMAs. They won an award. An award their fans voted for and nearly crashed twitter while doing so. They were surrounded by people they admire. His members nearly cried and the smiles on their faces spoke millions. So he looks up at Jin, never getting used to the fact that Jin looks beautiful at literally any given time of the day. Especially now, managing to look breathtaking whereas the fact that its been a long day is slowly showing up on his face. But he moves a little closer to him, and Jin is drawn in by how intently Namjoon is gazing at him. Not really paying attention to who’s looking or where they are, Namjoon puts his arms around Jin’s waist and brings him closer, and Jin lets him. He raises one of his eyebrows in question and Namjoon shakes his head and gives him a small smile, the one where only one of his dimples show up. Its been a couple of minutes of standing their in one position, in each others embrace and staring at each other, and its Jin that makes the first move. He lets himself relax a little, closes the gap between him and Joon by resting his forehead against his and closing his eyes. The music is still blaring in their ears. Mind and body buzzing. Their members are off god knows where. No doubt they’re getting looks (maybe not), but strangely, at the moment, it’s not all too concerning.

Can we hope that zayn will attent the brits? His last two likes on twitter are about it and the last time he was active about awards was the amas which he went and win(well it was heavenly linked to gigi too) Anyway until he resurfaces with concrete evidence in la i'll believe he's in uk resting low rehearshing for his brit performance. Also what are the chances to have a chiam attentance? I dont expect for liam to go unless he's with her and all the question would be baby related.

hiii!

I personally do think the odds of Zayn attending the Brits are more favorable then not, as keeping in Melly’s Beardsmas 2k17 predictions. I’d put Melly Maths™* at 70/30 in favor of him going. 

One anon pointed out the possibility of what if IDWLF acoustic was meant to be performed at the Brits and be released post performance, which would be smart Business Hoe-ing, but I have zero boob inklings about whether he’s going to perform (although I obvs would love to see that).  He’s supposed to be at the Versus show in the UK tomorrow w/ Gigith, so we’ll see what happens.

Fwiw, I think there’s a 0% chance Cheryl is attending any award shows this pregnant. She’s supposed to be due in March now, apparently according to what she told the tabloids? I think if Liam goes, he’ll go stag and avoid any questions related to the Chiam baby and her 174 year pregnancy. 

*fair warning that Melly is shit at maths though

Not that much but we start to see him a bit :)

- Play the Odds  : Harry and Louis are best friends since childhood who, after a night of drinking, find themselves locked in a bet: first one to kiss the other a thousand times wins. Wins what? They don’t know. Glory, Harry supposes. Bragging rights, though those don’t do much in this economy. All Harry knows is that this is one bet he can finally win. What he doesn’t expect, though, is what happens when he starts kissing his best friend on a daily basis. Namely, he doesn’t expect falling head over heels in love with his best friend. Now all he has to do is make sure the bet never ends, so he never has to stop kissing Louis. (25k)

28 ~ “You’re still mad?” 
88 ~ “After everything, I’d still choose you.” 
102 ~ “Do you really think I could ever replace you?” 
Note~ This is really dialogue heavy and idk how to feel about that. I might come back and change this a bit, but knowing me i’ll forget. So for now, here you go :D

“You’re still mad?” I questioned as I walked into Shawn’s old bedroom, seeing him already sitting in bed, back against the headboard. I was met with silence. He didn’t even look at me, just kept his eyes trained to his phone. Boyfriend of the year award, 2k19.

I shuffled over to him, crawling onto the bed so I was situated on his lap. Shawn’s eyes darted over to me for a second, but his attention was soon back on his Twitter feed.

“Shawn, talk to me, please.” I all but beg. With a loud huff, Shawn dropped his phone. For the first time tonight he looked me in the eyes, and I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders. This is good. We’re getting somewhere. He doesn’t hate me.

“Why were you with him?”

“Who? You mean Mike? He’s my friend.”

“You didn’t need to be all over him.”

“Oh my God, this is like the cinema all over again.”

“This is not like the movies.”

“Little Shawny’s jealous.”

“So what if I am? He clearly likes you!”

“Mike doesn’t like me.”

“Oh course he does! He’s always looking at you, he clings onto you whatever chance he gets…”

“Mike’s gay, Shawn.”

Shawn suddenly froze, his mouth dropping in shock, “Wait, what?”

“Mike. Is. Gay. He doesn’t like me, he likes Jon. I’ve been trying to set them up for the past four months.” I explained.

“That doesn’t explain why he’s always clinging onto you.”

“I’m just a really needy person. You should know that by now. You were ignoring me all night and Mike was the only one willing the cuddle with me.”

“Oh.” Shawn frowned, looking down at his hands, “I-this is stupid, but when we broke up and you wouldn’t talk to me, I thought you had replaced me with him. You were always hanging out, and you would go to him with your problems instead of me. I thought you hated me.”

“You’re right, that is stupid. I could never hate you.” Shawn’s arms looped around my waist, the first time he’d touched me all night. He drew me closer until my head was resting against his chest, his chin laying on my head. I closed my eyes, taking in the scent of warn out cologne and beer. A strange combination, but it was oddly comforting.

“After the breakup, I felt weird talking to you about my guy problems. I felt bad for constantly annoying Que with it, so when Mike started helping with the band and YouTube stuff, I just started going to him for help and stuff. I never meant to make you feel like shit.”

“I know you didn’t. It’s my fault, I blew things way out of proportion.”

“But seriously, do you really think I could replace you? Because, I mean, after everything we’ve been through, I’d still choose you over everyone. You’re stuck with me for life whether you like it or not.”

Shawn let out a laugh, a big smile stretching onto his face causing my heart to flutter. His forehead came down to rest on mine, and I smiled as our noses bashed against each other, “I’m glad to be stuck with you.”

“Good.” Is all I managed before our lips met in the softest kiss ever.

Otayuri Headcannon: The Perfect Gentleman

- Otabek is literally the perfect gentleman

- He goes to Russia and asks Yuri’s Grandfather permission to date him. He also makes a stop at Viktor and Yuuri’s apartment to ask their permission after all, they are Yuri’s skating parents and also because Viktor would be hurt if he didn’t ask him

- Before they kiss for the first time Otabek asks, “is it okay if I kiss you?” and Yuri just kisses him in response

- He literally opens every door for Yuri which Yuri pretends to hate but secretly loves

- Viktor constantly texts Otabek threats about destroying his boy’s innocence which infuriates both Yuri and Yuuri to no end, but Otabek admires his concern and reassures him that he would NEVER 

Every time Viktor threatens Otabek, Yuuri just says “we fucked after knowing each other for like three weeks you hypocrite, leave the poor boy alone” 

- The first time Yuri says I love you, Otabek literally swoons and sends him bouquets and chocolate every day for like three weeks after

- Otabek doesn’t even let them sleep in the same bed before Yuri is eighteen. Even when Yuri comes to Kazakhstan to visit him, he makes Yuri sleep in his bed while Otabek takes the couch.

- Even though the age of consent in both of their countries is 16, Otabek and Yuri wait until he turns 18 to finally have sex 

Which Yuri was prepared for by the awkward sex talk Yuuri gave him that he hated at the time but turned out to be useful

- When they do have sex, Otabek is gentle and caring making sure it feels good for Yuri

- The morning after Otabek cooks Yuri breakfast in bed

- Otabek sends Yuri flowers and gifts for almost anything like the anniversary of when they first held hands or when they first went swimming together

- When Otabek gets down on one knee to ask Yuri’s hand in marriage, he fucking sobbs because that’s just how much he loves him

- After they get married literally nothing changes, Otabek still keeps opening the doors for Yuri except something did change Otabek’s last name. Otabek takes an extreme amount of pride in his new last name: Plisetsky. When some news outlets’ refer to him as Otabek Atlin, he fucking loses it and starts a twitter with the sole purpose of correcting the people who get his last name wrong. He only ever tweets about Yuri and his married name. He doesn’t even follow people back, except his husband. This makes Phichit angry Slowly but surely his twitter account changes over to an endless stream of tweets about the children Yuri and he adopted

- Otabek gets nominated for Best Dad but when he wins he says, “I do not deserve this award, but my husband Yuri does” and gives him the trophy

- He never stops opening doors for his Yuri throughout all of their years together and buys him flowers and gifts all the time
