I think a lot about “all will be revealed in due time from the band members’ own mouths” being published in Billboard back in January.
I know so many people were pumped up about that quote and article, but nine months later and it still doesn’t quite sit right with me.
I think the public trashing of Billboard by Azoff (see below) means that although on the surface it seems like a positive, NT article, it’s actually an OT article.
Fans can breathe a sigh of relief… probably.
No mention of Harry (separating him from the rest is a tried and true OT tactic), Niall doing nothing at all. Lilo’s Family Guy cameo is mentioned which is fine, and then Liam’s recording, emphasizing that there’s also rap (not 1D music).
I think not mentioning upcoming parenthood was just a diversionary tactic so it wouldn’t be as obvious as all the other UK mouthpieces. (Billboard is definitely a Simon mouthpiece.)
Getting back to my original point, I think OT *knew* that 1D would have gag orders and couldn’t say anything for months and months so reporting that they would be able to say something seems super sneaky. The fans will be waiting for something that won’t be coming any time soon.
And here is a collection of Azoff’s tweets about billboard:
i feel like guan shan is the type of person who pretends to not get scared during horror movies when he actually does but despite that he still enjoys them immensely, while he tian is the type of person who doesn’t get the appeal of horror movies because they’re ridiculous and the characters acts like idiots most of the time
this of course until they watch a horror movie together and guan shan spends the entire time making jokes about the stupid things the characters do and clinging tightly to him during scary scene. he tian teases him to no end about it, but when they go to bed later that night, guan shan snuggles closer to him and he tian thinks that horror movies are not so bad after all
Wow! Never thought I’d get one, thanks. You didn’t give me a pairing so I chose Gajevy :)
12. things you said when you thought I was asleep
It happened during the peaceful moments. The times where they’d camp out in the forest, the sound of crackling wood lulling them to sleep. The times where the lights were off and the open window would welcome in a chilling summer breeze. The times after the war where their worries disappeared and thoughts about the future were unavoidable. During those quiet moments, where she seemed to be sound asleep, drifting in and out of consciousness every now and again, she’d hear him. Deep yet soft, unbeknownst to him, his voice always reached her. She could hear the faintest of his whispers.
She never answered; not because she was at a loss for words - how could she be? Words were the essence of her magic - but because she was scared that if she did, he would stop whispering. She wouldn’t risk it for the world, no matter what the whispers were about.
“Why do you want to spend so much time with me?”
“You’re so pretty.”
“You’re such a nerd.”
“I’m so sorry for…”
“I don’t deserve you.”
“I’ll always protect you.”
She never answered. However, this one time, she made an exception. Levy opened her eyes, catching Gajeel off-guard, and reached a hand out to him.
“I’m scared, too,” she whispered back, making him lay his hand on her swollen belly. “And it’s okay.”
Gajeel stared at her belly and her hand on top of his, then looked back at her. Her smile was so genuine, and her eyes so full of love. His chest rose, and he released a peaceful sigh.
He smiled back. “It’s okay,” he repeated. To her, to himself, and to their newcomer.
if theyre revisiting the six thatchers and the comments section suggests sherlocks solution is “too simple” can we hold off on assuming that the gay couple was violent and the straight couple is the johnlock mirror lol anyway
