dan makes a few more mentions of harry styles/one direction in general over the next year and a half.
harry moves out of his flat with bandmate louis tomlinson early 2012 and to a flat in east london. dan moves to london mid-2012
the pivotal moment. october 7th, 2012. one direction is interviewed by dan howell and flatmate, phil lester. three videos of this occurrence are available (one) (two) (three). there are multiple instances in which harry sends smoldering looks towards the unknowing youtuber. this also was commemorated in dan and phil’s book, The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire (in stores now)
if one has the imagination for it, dan and harry may have had a three month fling with the slightly older british vlogger. the idea is alluring. both sexually ambiguous men having a secret love affair right for the world to see. around this time dan is keeping up a fairly regular schedule of uploading videos each week on his main channel, danisnotonfire.
in between november 30th and december 21st there was no uploading. this could be attributed to the fact that harry had been seen out multiple times with taylor swift and the end of darry was nigh. darry would be confirmed dead when harry and taylor were pictured kissing on new years eve.
and to non-believers, this could be the end of the high-rise, champagne-tinged love affair between dan howell and harry styles (for which i have many head canons about but we are just covering the factual evidence). but no.
on march 7th, 2013, dan uploads a vyou answer talking about how weird it was to meet one direction. dan speaks of how he mad eye contact with harry. he claims his favorite member was niall because he smiled the most. he would, considering harry must have broken his heart after that meeting.
in december 2013, amazingphil (phil lester, dan howell’s flatmate and rumored significant other) uploaded a video called ‘my google search history’ revealing he once looked up where harry styles lived. lester claims to have only been on fan-based ventures but one may assume he was scoping out the man that had dan howell’s heart in the latter part of 2012.
on february 19th, 2014, dan howell and harry styles both attend the brit awards. and both were wearing the same shirt. this sparks multiple articles on the two and the hilarity of the situation was apparent to the internet.
about a month later, dan goes to a concert with a bunch of youtuber friends (sans phil, interesting) to see one direction.
other “darry proofs” could be that dan prefers to be the big spoon and harry the little spoon. dan and harry have both expressed interest in fashion. both are pretentious as fuck. it has been noted none of harry’s songs which he has written have confirmed he has ever been in love. one could think ‘fools gold’ and ‘just a little bit of your heart’ could be about one dan howell. recently dan and harry have both been photographed with black nail polish on, a sure sign darry is coming to pass soon.
this all culminates to last night, october 6th. harry was out celebrating the release of his recent magazine editorial in another man at albert’s club. phil lester was out with his family. this would make dan howell approximately thirty minutes away from harry if he did not go out with lester and his family. this was an optimal timeframe for dan or harry to visit each other. is darry reuniting? only time will tell

Taylor dances to What Makes You Beautiful at the Kids’ Choice Awards
Taylor and Harry first met at the Kids’ Choice Awards on March 31 2012. One Direction’s Liam joked the following day: “I thought Harry might have went to the bathroom just a little bit when we met her.” Also that week, Justin Bieber invited both Taylor and One Direction to his LA mansion, where they swam and “just hung out”. Bieber told Britain’s Daily Mirror that “one of the biggest artists in the world thinks Harry is so hot, but I have been sworn to secrecy.”

“You got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt"
"You got that James Dean day dream look in your eye”
During an MTV interview, One Direction teased a bashful Harry about Taylor. “Did any particular person stand out for you [at the Kids’ Choice Awards]? Just so we can get your drift … a really quick one.” When Harry finally mentioned Taylor’s name, his bandmates shouted, “Jackpot!” As the conversation moved on, Harry muttered to Louis Tomlinson: “I’m going to kill you!”
Days later, both Harry and Taylor were spotted separately at New York’s Bowery Hotel. One Direction were in town for promotional duties while Taylor was on a trip with girlfriends.
In late April, One Direction began a tour of Australia and New Zealand, during which Harry revealed that he had exchanged numbers with Taylor: “We met in America. She is very talented. She’s very nice … We’re friends.”
However, the flirtation with Taylor came to an abrupt end when Harry was photographed kissing model Emma Ostilly during a night out in Auckland, New Zealand. A Taylor friend later told Vanity Fair that there was “a weekend where they got really close and he was all, like, ‘You’re amazing - I want to be with you. I want to do this.’” According to the friend, he then texted Taylor while on tour to alert her to pictures online where he was “kissing a friend good-bye.” When Taylor searched for the pictures, she discovered they were “making out with like their hands all up in each other’s hair.”

Six months later…they reconnect in September 2012
Harry and Taylor posed with fans at LA’s Katsuya in September
The pair were next seen together on September 6 2012, when Popstar reported that Harry and his bandmates watched Taylor’s final MTV Video Music Awards rehearsal. The couple later enjoyed a post-show meal at LA’s Katsuya with a group that included their mutual friend Ed Sheeran and Taylor’s bandmates. They posed separately for photos with fans inside the sushi restaurant.
Taylor and her boyfriend Conor Kennedy had their final meeting on September 16. In October, a source revealed that the couple had “quietly parted ways a while ago. It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They’re fine.”
Secretly dating in October 2012
Backstage at the Radio 1 Teen Awards
On October 7, both Taylor and Harry performed at London’s Radio 1 Teen Awards. They spent a lot of time together backstage, leading radio hosts to speculate on-air about whether they were romantically involved.The Sun reported that Taylor and a “mystery” member of One Direction had arranged to have dinner at the upmarket Luton Hoo Hotel after the concert. However, when the tabloid’s Bizarre columnist received a tip about the reservation, the meal was suddenly cancelled. When One Direction were later asked about the rumor during an Irish chat show appearance, Louis Tomlinson suggested that Harry “take this one”. However, Harry replied that he “didn’t get asked” to dinner.
Later that month, Harry named Taylor as one of his celebrity crushes, alongside Rihanna and Rita Ora, telling Seventeen: “Taylor’s a really lovely girl. Honestly, she couldn’t be a sweeter person. She’s a great girl and she’s extremely talented. She’s one of those people you meet [who’s] genuinely a nice person. Some people you meet and they are not as nice as you make them out to be, but she’s one of those people who’s really just amazing. She deserves everything she has.”
In an interview published at the beginning of November, Harry told Cosmopolitan that he was currently dating someone: “There’s someone I like. If you’re shown in the papers with other girls when you really like someone else, that’s difficult. But still, I think it’s important if you’re thinking about starting a relationship to do it away from the spotlight. I thought I [had a type] but this girl I like isn’t my ‘type’. It’s more about the person. How they act, their body language, if they can laugh at themselves. I find ambition really attractive too - if someone’s good at something they love doing. I want someone who is driven.”

“Your necklace hanging from my neck”
“Two paper airplanes flying, flying, flying”
Styles was photographed wearing his necklace on October 30. By November 7, it was in Swift’s possession
During a promotional appearance in London on November 7, Taylor was photographed wearing a silver It’s A Paper Airplane chain identical to that owned by Harry, who replaced his chain with a new pendant. Also around this time, One Direction’s Niall Horan told People his favorite song of 2012 was Taylor’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” When asked if he would ever date Taylor, Niall gave a small laugh, looked at Harry and answered with a succinct, “no.”
I love intellectual people. But not in an A+ school average grade type of way. I love people who read tons of books, show interest in movies, and express themselves within the beats of music. I love people who give the best advice to others as they possibly can. I love people who read, speak and breathe poetic words. I love unique people. I love people who prefer being alone most of the time, people who would do anything for anyone. Even if it will break them into pieces. I love the people who are completely mental and explode colors within themselves like shooting stars. I love people with red, blonde, pink, black, brown, or blue hair. I love people with piercings, tattoos, or even nothing at all. I love people with their eyes twinkling and their freckles beaming across their nose. I love humans. Beautiful beautiful humans.

“inspired by the people I have seen and met at concerts and my friends.”
Me again, I just read your interpretation of "Ever Since New York," && all I can think of was the Taylor kiss for NYE. Harry throughout the whole stunt. He mentioned that he had a song on his album that he wrote a few years back. I think this is it.
When I said it wasn’t about Taylor, I said so in terms of “Haylor” not really about his time bearding with her but I agree, what you said makes a lot of sense actually!! He’s been praying for the end ever since New York when things were at their peak and horrible for him (little did he know about babygate back then).
