The night is dark and full of Stricklake, she whispers…
AND I FOR ONE AM HERE FOR IT!
Dedicated to @humanityinahandbag & @bifacialler, my fellow shipmates in Stricklake Hell and who deserve all the love and encouragement in the world! Ler my love, please feel free to think of this as an early birthday present =)
Fair bit of warning, folks, it gets quite steamy here. Nothing that warrants an Explicit or Mature rating, of course, but…well, if you read An Amorous Attack, you know what’s in store.
As always, I hope you enjoy!
know…you didn’t have to walk me
arched a brow at her as they made their way up to her porch, the gesture making
those (so unfairly gorgeous) green
eyes of his glint as his mouth curled into a half smile, the same one that had
made Barbara’s heart do such a strange little spasm when first seeing it that she
had been worried until she realized that oh,
had been followed by Oh God, what the hell are you thinking, getting a crush
on your son’s teacher?
“Maybe at some point everyone will want to do something again but it’ll better if it happens naturally like, ‘Hey, we all really want to do this again.’ If that were to happen it would be amazing.” 'At some point' means that, currently, NOT everyone wants to do something. If I said to you, "Maybe at some point I'll want to get together with you for lunch but I'd be amazed if it happened" that does not mean we have lunch plans. Quite the opposite. It means lunch ain't happening, Becky.
Language is powerful. This is why my betas and I will go back and forth 19 times over the use of one word in a fic. As for those quotes, let’s just look at one:
“I would never rule that out. It’s the most important, greatest thing that ever happened to me, being in that band. It completely changed my life.”
I would never rule that out. I don’t rule that out. I won’t rule that out. I can’t rule that out. Why would I rule that out? It’s not ruled out.
I could go on. But each of those sentences has subtly different meaning.
It’s the most important, greatest thing that ever happened to me, being in that band. It’s the most important, greatest thing that has happened to me, being in that band.
It’s the most important, greatest thing that happened to me, being in One Direction. It’s the most important, greatest thing that happened to me, being a part of One Direction. It’s the most important, greatest thing that has happened to me, being a part of that band. One Direction is the most important, greatest thing that happened to me, being in that band. Being in One Direction is the most important, greatest thing that happened to me.
Being in One Direction is the most important, greatest thing that has happened to me.
I could go on, but again, each sentence means something subtle. Even the difference between “happened” and “has happened.”
It completely changed my life. If has completely changed my life. One Direction completely changed my life. One Direction has completely changed my life. One Direction has been life changing. One Direction was life changing. It was life changing.
Now, this is all a print interview. Who knows if Harry said these words exactly this way? But since Another Man was seen as “the real Harry,” a sign he had a great new team, and people are using these quotes as their reassurance One Direction–excuse me, I mean “that band–is coming back, well… We’re obviously supposed to think that was “the real Harry.”
Harry surely expected some questions about the future of One Direction that band.
The Harry I have seen is a slow talker. He thinks before he speaks. He knows how to use his words to swerve. He knows how to play games. That’s what he did in those quotes.

Lance was probably having one of his worst years. He had dropped out from flight school for certain reasons. His mother got sick to the point of needing to be confined in a hospital. His lover ran away from him the very same day he had proposed. Oh, and let’s not forget that he was now chasing a stranger because he believed his new apartment was haunted. Yup, just one of his worst years.
