2012 Tattoos.

Do you ever think about 2012 in terms of Harry’s (and then Louis’) tattoos? When they got them and what they got in the context of what was going on around them during that time? Because it’ll knock you flat on your ass if you think about it too much. 

Harry’s star on 1 February 2012, perhaps a symbol more for himself that anyone else, as he got it 3 days after the official end of his “relationship” with Caroline, the first of his many public displays with women. 

Harry’s “won’t stop ‘til we surrender” in the middle of June when Eleanor had come and gone twice and would come again for a hastily planned public trip to France with Louis at the end of month. 

The hanger, “I can’t change” and birdcage with no door at the same time Harry and Louis were being publicly removed from each other’s lives, shopping for new houses as Eleanor and Louis went from flaunting their relationship to fans to flaunting it to the press. 

And that all hurts in ways that I can’t really articulate. But then I think about how Louis was with Harry at Shamrock in LA on 8 September 2012 when I think Harry was beginning to plan his birds and it was just a week before Bullshit 1.0. 

And I wonder how much they knew about what was coming with Taylor and Eleanor and the denials and the public stunts at public houses, and how the seemingly mad, emotional scramble to ink these things into their skin permanently was the best way they knew how to prepare and cope. 

I wonder what made Louis go “Ok, yes, I see how this helps you” and decide to start getting his own. And how pretty immediately after beginning to get his own, they were thinking in terms of couples tattoos. The “It is what it is” and butterfly appear to have been planned, and I wonder if it was initially the first set they were planning on getting together? 

That statement in the context of late 2012. “It is what it is” with that butterfly I think means you can’t turn back time and change. The knowledge and belief they were in it together, forever linked.

And then I inevitably wonder if the ship and compass was even planned at all. Or if it was an impulsive, emotional choice they had to make in order to make it through the next 4 weeks. 

I think a lot about how the ship and compass may have been their first really reckless, almost selfish declarations to each other, and how much joy and even relief they got from those tattoos in the first weeks after they got them. 

While a lot of us may think of 2012 with fondness, it was exceedingly difficult for them. And I think these first tattoos were an especially significant act.

scorpio compatibility
  • (this is done by most to least compatible!!)
  • scorpio and taurus: (complimentary signs!) they would each fall in love with each other's passion and they'd each get what they desire in a relationship. taurus gets a home of safety and comfort with someone who would be happy staying in or pulling them out if their comfort zone. taurus would be totally okay with scorpio's jealousy and theyd do anything to keep them from being jealous. scorpio would learn patience and taurus would learn to live in the moment!!
  • scorpio and capricorn: capricorn accepts scorpio's jealousy and devotes a lot of time and effort into making scorpio happy! scorpio has a shoulder to cry on and a person who will give them advice and teach them to think more realistically, while capricorn has someone to teach amd show off to which makes them really happy.
  • scorpio and pisces: they would each get the love and attention and affection that they both crave. pisces basically lives to love people and scorpio love that about them! neither would either feel lonely and scorpio would have no reason to ever feel jealous!!
  • scorpio and cancer: scorpio may have to pull cancer out of their comfort zones at times bc of fear. scorpio will tease cancer but in a loving way and cancer will give scorpio all the love they need and no reason to ever feel jealous. cancer may not be as passionate as scorpio at times and they both may be too moody. cancer will also have to teach scorpio to open up :)
  • scorpio and aries: scorpio's jealousy would either flatter or annoy aries and aries would get angry v easily in the relationship and that would make scorpio moody and it would just be one cycle. aries wouldnt like how secretive they are and how judgmental scorpio can be, especially if its them they're judging, but theyd think its hilarious when scorpio makes fun of people. their passion could probably light a room on fire and theyd most likely get arrested at least once in their relationship!!
  • scorpio and aquarius: (make or break signs!) this relationship coule either go ridiculously well or extremely awful!! (it mostly depends on the couple's moon signs or other signs in their charts!) if it went well, scorpio would be madly in love with aquarius' love of knowledge and life snd aquarius would be so attracted to scorpio's passion. aquarius would be accepting of scorpio's jealousy and all their little quirks and scorpio would learn that detachment doesnt mean no devotion!! theyd have all sorts of questionable adventures! if it went badly, aquarius would be really annoyed with how scorpio needs constant attention and scorpio would think aquarius' ego is far too big. they definitely could no be friends after a relationship and scorpio would probably seek revenge on aquarius.
  • scorpio and libra: libra would find scorpio's passion and jealousy intimidating but lowkey attractive although they can be scared of it at times. libra would be frustrated by scorpio's secretiveness and libra would make scorpio really jealous without knowing. scorpio finds libra's charm and class beautiful but boring at times.
  • scorpio and leo: they would be a very head turning couple and leo would really admire scorpio's jealousy which would most likely inflate their ego and cause them to play games with scorpio and make them even more jealous. scorpio would occasionally find leo very fake, but leo would really boost scorpio's confidence and easily cheer them up when theyre down.
  • scopio and scorpio: these two might actually have too much in common. they would cause each other to be really really jealous and their jealousy would just annoy each other. also there would be almost no communication bc they woupd bith hide their feelings from ech other. they would be madly attracted to each other for seemingly no reason at all and love each other's humor. most of their fun would be had by secretly judging everyone around them. they'd also easily cheer wach other up when they're sad within seconds!
  • scorpio and virgo: since virgo is very detail oriented and dedicated that would really please scorpio but scorpio would often feel that virgo is so much more dedicated to everything but them and scorpio would also hate how virgo turns their thoughts down for being too illogical. virgo wouldnt like how scorpio always needs attention and protecting and theyd be very annoyed by how unrealistic scorpio thinks. neither of them would share their feelings with each other and they would often be really bored by each other. during the relationship, virgo would learn that sometimes you need to take a break from things that are important to you to care for the ones you love and scorpio would learn that you shouldn't always need someone to look after you, somethings you have to do on your own. they probably wouldnt talk after a relationship.
  • scorpio and gemini: gemini's constant desire to be in action and to remain would tire scorpio out and cause them to become moody and scorpio's constant need of attention and affection would annoy gemini. scorpio would also think gemini is fake, but they would enjoy judging people together. gemini secretly seeks love the most in their life so once they accept scorpio it would turn out alright! gemini would also live to learn how scorpio feels and thinks so deeply!!
  • scorpio and sagittarius: scorpio would be hurt very easily by sagittarius' honesty and sagittarius would be annoyed a lot by scorpio's jealousy. sagittarius would learn to be more sensitive and that their actions will have consequences and scorpio will learn that people wont always censor themselves for you. the would also understand each others humor.
The differences matter.

Before Louis knows if it’s a Harry/older women joke:

After Louis hears it’s a Niall/older women joke:

How is that different than when Louis reacts to Harry and women references, you might ask?

Louis when Dan Wooten asked Harry if he was on Tinder:

Louis when an interviewer talked about her connection with Harry:

Louis when he had to physically get out of the way so Harry could kiss an interviewer on the cheek:

Louis when Barbara Walters called Harry “the flirt” who was linked to older women:

Louis when an interviewer asks them about Harry’s “womanizer reputation” and seeing his “lothario thing” in action:

Louis when Harry gets asked if it’s annoying he’s linked to every woman he’s photographed with:

Louis when Mario Lopez asked Harry if he’d been “naughty or nice” that year:

Louis after an interviewer told Harry to come back because she “NEEDED HIM.”

Louis watching an interviewer give Harry her number:

Louis when an interviewer asked Harry about going for drinks with Ed and Taylor:

That’s how it’s different.

Harry’s Couple Tattoo Instagram Post

I noticed that the URL to the list of “couples tattoos” that Harry Googled to find the one he posted on his Instagram is dead. 

Here’s the original picture as it appeared in the list:

Here’s Harry’s instagram post from 17 October 2012:

He took a close up picture of the hands on a computer monitor.

This was a slideshow of 75 pictures. This was the 62nd picture on the 5th page. That’s how invested Harry was in this concept.

What sparked his sudden interest, you might ask?

In the 5 days before Harry posted this instagram, Louis got his first 4 tattoos.


I talk about this once a week but FUCKING WHY?

Robin: It’s like you’re all family now.

Louis: [immediately to himself]

Zayn, Niall and Liam react to Robin’s comment:

Louis: [does the worst thing he’s ever done and makes eye contact with Harry while smiling contentedly]

Harry: [does the worst thing he’s ever done ad closes his eyes]

Louis: [continues to stare at Harry]

Zayn, Niall and Liam: [never cracked a smile or outward emotional reaction of any kind]


The reactions of my family when I told them I'm going to the Netherlands
  • Sister: Oh no, alone? (Then she called me one week early and when I said I was going next week *today*) Ah, you made me being all worried too early.
  • Mother: Be careful, call me then and then.(Making me all nervous since I really never were before I spoke to her)
  • Father: What are you gonna do there, get high?
Saf at Military Equestrian Exam
  • My family members: looking great!
  • Soldiers: you nailed it. totally. textbook.
  • My equestrian friends: why are you riding with a double bridle? and spurs? and a saddle? why are you riding????
“Does Harry Styles...”

I want to talk about this question in the Grimmy interview from a year ago. Thanks Shar (@tommosgun for the video).

“Does Harry Styles put his hair in a towel after he’s washed it?”

Immediately before the girl begins the question, Liam and Louis are in good spirits, smiling into the camera. 

She begins.

“Does Harry Styes-”

Louis reacts physically to the name being read aloud. His smile disappears and he closes his eyes like he’s putting on a mask.

The girl goes on.

“-Put his hair in a towel-”

His nose twitches slightly. And then he turns to look up at Harry (who was ill and typing answers on his phone as we all delightfully recall).

Louis turns to Nick who clarifies “like a towel turban” and then back to Harry again as Liam says “Yeah, he’s really good at that.”

He wants to hear what Harry says, but is trying to look so nonchalant. 

Nick asks Harry to demonstrate. And then Louis’ mouth ticks up a notch before he can help it.

Then Harry shifts and reaches for a towel to demonstrate, while Liam is saying “this is legit how he used to get out of the shower on X Factor” and Louis can’t hold back anymore, he has to smile as he watches Harry’s every move.

And finally, he has to chime in as Harry attempts to put the towel on his head.”No time, no time,” but he’s so fond as he says it.

Harry gets the towel on and all bets are off with Louis’ media training. He beams.

Nick says “Oh my God, it’s like Anne’s hair!” And Louis is more fond and amused.

Harry acts exasperated and blows a raspberry with his lips.

And there’s no righting the ship. Louis is all in on the fond.

From “Oh, shit, be cool, don’t give it away” to “THAT MY BABY!” in 36 Seconds: The Louis Tomlinson Story.


I wanna have a discussion with y'all

So I literally was writing a NOVEL on how Richonne is my OTP of all otps, how I shipped them from the start of them meeting at the prison, and how although I KNEW they were going to get together, I just wish they had written in a scene or two more that would have gave the audience a hint that they were going to become a couple in 6x10. But then I deleted it all cuz I got to thinking that that was just nonsense. I didn’t need another scene letting me know what was gonna happen with their relationship because the hints were written out for me plain as day in the show itself. I realize that all the hints I ever neede were the reasons why I loved Richonne in the way that I did. They were spread out in every interaction, every look, every smile, every touch, and every amount of trust that I saw on my screen between the two. The forming of their relationship wasn’t something thrown together to make a good storyline; their relationship was a storyline made in and of itself that goes along with the characters journeys, it’s not an added something to give their character depth.

That’s what makes them beautiful/flawless/ and effortless. Richonne is love.

Richonne is the reason why The Walking Dead is a beautiful as it is. Because it shows how powerful love can be in the middle of the end of the world ❤️


I think we could all use a little pick-me-up. So here’s a video I found recently. 

This was 17 March 2012 in New Jersey, same day and meet and greet as “Are you and Louis dating?” 

This girl gave them all homemade fan art of the boys as characters on MTV’s Jersey Shore.

Niall was J.Wow

Liam was Snookie.

Zayn was Deena.

Harry and Louis were Sam and Ronnie.

Ronnie and Sam were a couple on the show and in real life.

Harry had seen the show and knew of Ronnie and Sam’s relationship status before this meet and greet, as he tweeted about them in July 2011.

Liam and Niall were polite but confused when they took their pictures.

Louis takes the picture of him and Harry and says “Perfect!” and promptly puts it in the box, so I don’t know if he got what was going on.

Zayn is too busy spraying fans with silly string to pay much attention to his picture.

And then there’s Harry. The girl hands him the picture and says “It’s you and Louis.”

She then goes on to explain “That’s Ron and Sam from Jersey Shore.”

Harry’s instinct is to immediately show Louis.

He says “Lou-eh” twice in a very Zayn-like inflection.

Louis says “I know!”

Then Harry puts the picture down, and the guy on the end takes it. Harry looks serious as he looks down and then back up at the girl who did the picture. 

And he decides to say “GREAT job” and is very serious about it.

His serious face reminds me of the face he made when he nodded in the affirmative motion when asked if he and Louis were dating this same day.

So basically, Harry was pleased two times on this day when someone thought he and Louis were dating, and he was not disgusted by the thought of it.

Favorite Movie [2/5] - A Walk To Remember

“Jamie has faith in me. She makes me want to be different, better”


TITLE: Bruna
CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Ch 3 of 5- In Which a Friendship is Tested
AUTHOR: staria
ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine working in a coffee shop and having Loki as a regular customer. You screwed up his order the first time you ever prepared a coffee for him a few months ago so he really dislikes you but as time passes by he starts talking more to you and doesn’t seem to hold that big of a grudge anymore.


NOTES/WARNINGS: Once more, language. There’s not a lot of Loki on this one, but other things unfold.


After a few months of seeing Loki regularly at the coffee shop, things had fallen into a regular pattern were he would come in, get a drink, and talk to all of us for a bit. He was now talking to me as well and didn’t mind me preparing his coffee but he still prefered Jessica’s over mine, which was fine by me. I was mostly glad that we were over the awkward I-think-you’re-the-worst-barista-ever phase, because there’s nothing worse than having an annoying customer bitching about you all the time.

One day, me and Jessica were talking after the morning rush when Loki came for his coffee. He approached us and greeted us in the usual way.

“Good morning, my lovely beauties.”

ohlookitscazz  asked:

aaaaaa there's so many good prompts, but how about “You can call me whenever you want… Even if you don’t have a reason to.” ❤️

ahahaha I know XDDD I really love that list, there’s not a single bad prompt on it…

High school au ‘cause those are always fun~

“I’m being annoying, aren’t I?” Gon asks aloud and heat floods his cheek at the light snickering he gets in response.

“Well, I dunno, you’re always annoying to some degree, Gon-”

“Killua!” Gon whines and Killua only laughs harder. Gon can hear his tiny gasps of air through the crackling static, the kind that Killua only makes when he’s really- genuinely- laughing. The sound makes Gon’s heart flutter helplessly in response and Gon closes his eyes with a quiet sigh.

Killua’s laughter really is the best sound in the world. Even if he is laughing at Gon’s expense.

“Killua,” he grumbles again into his cell phone’s speaker, eyes still shut, and Killua’s chuckling finally dies down.

“Sorry, sorry.” Gon can practically hear his best friend grinning. “It’s just, you kind of walked into that one, you know.”

Gon sticks out his tongue. Killua can’t see him, but the move feels appropriate, somehow. “I was being serious! I know I’ve been calling you a lot, lately…”

“Mm, that’s true. You really didn’t need to call me about your math homework. I think even you know the answer to two plus two.”

“Hey!” Gon says loudly and Killua’s laughter is back. “That’s mean, Killua! If it really bothered you, you don’t have to pick up!”

“Nah, I do. Who else would tell you what the powerhouse of the cell is and all that wonderful crap they try to shove into our brains on a daily basis?”

Gon rolls his eyes. “I know what the mitochondria is, Killua.”

“Are you sure it’s the mitochondria?”

“Yes,” he says immediately, then sits up straight. “Wait. It is, isn’t it? I’m sure Mr. Wing said that last class-”

“I dunno, I guess you’ll just have to look it up, won’t you?”

Gon slumps back into his desk chair with a drawn-out groan. He really doesn’t want to look that up. Killua’s probably just messing with him, but he can’t be sure and Aunt Mito says he has to get better grades or else he’ll get stuck behind a grade, and that can’t happen because Killua would go ahead and Gon doesn’t want to be anywhere that Killua isn’t, and-

“Gon,” Killua says, tone soft and warm, and Gon’s breath catches in his throat.


“You’re never annoying, okay? You can call me whenever you want, even if you don’t have a reason to.”

Gon swallows thickly. He clutches the phone tighter, blood suddenly roaring in his ears.

“That’s not it,” he says quietly and Killua makes a confused sound. 

“What is it then?”

“Well…I always have a reason to call you,” he says honestly. “I love your voice, Killua. That’s all the reason I’ll ever need.”

Let's talk about the mic stand mix-up of 2013.

Someone on my dash tonight reblogged this moment from the last show at the Staples Center on 10 August 2013 and asked in their tags “Why is this so blurry?” I got curious if there was any other new/unseen footage of it so I went digging around. 

What I found was fascinating and changed the nature of the moment a lot for me. 

  1. It wasn’t intentional on Harry’s part to mix up the stands. 
  2. Louis honestly had no idea how to handle the situation.
  3. Liam had an existential crisis the likes of which we haven’t seen before.
  4. Louis was reprimanded by someone off stage (I think).
  5. Harry apologized.
