Niall squints at the number, back hunched over, with his fingers hovering over the keys of his laptop.

“I told you having him would help,” Louis says after a moment, grinning widely as he pokes at Niall’s side.

“Hi, Harry,” he says softly, reaching out to touch his elbow, but he thinks better of it, lets his arm hover between them instead.

Harry looks over to him, slightly startled, and he studies Niall for a moment. Jaw dropped a bit, and the goat cheese is forgotten in his hands.

He closes his mouth. Then opens it again, then speaks.

“I’m sorry. Who are you?”

Where Harry can’t seem to remember who Niall is, and Niall wants him to; furthermore, another amnesia fic, but not in the way you expect.

Your tags...I KNOW!!! Like wtf? Don't snap at people when that's literally what you said. How else was it supposed to be taken?

I haven’t actually listened to the interview and I’m seeing some people interpreted as a joke and some people just think he used poor phrasing, but regardless, those are his words. It’s perfectly understandable for fans to be confused after being jerked around for over a year when it comes to solo projects and the status of One Direction and their hiatus. I’m not sure what Niall or any of them would expect when we’ve been told that there would be a year-long hiatus, a two-year-long hiatus, an 18-month-long hiatus, no solo music, solo music for Liam, solo music for Niall, maybe solo music for Harry, a reuniting of the band that is merely “not being ruled out” as opposed to being guaranteed, a reuniting of the band that will “definitely” happen, a reuniting of the band that will happen whenever they’re ready, and so on.

I realize they may be in between a rock and a hard place in terms of what they can say about the future of the band, but I think it’s so inappropriate to be rude and snappy to fans who express confusion. Quite frankly, confusion and frustration are perfectly reasonable responses to the very different stories thrown our way from the media and the members of the band.

I always say to my friend imagine if harry was doing 1% of the things niall has been doing i would understand the ~fear (anger? Petulancia?) Of some larries but he legit don't do it so I'm always ????? At them but oh well

Very true. I think objectively Niall has been doing exactly what I would expect from someone pursuing a solo career. And yet??? No panic. Probably because people are more confident in Niall’s love of 1D than Harry’s (though I do think Niall’s devotion is often overstated. He loves 1D but it’s kind of a Niall trope at this point that isn’t necessarily grounded in reality anymore) 

Perception is a funny thing.
