Honestly as hard as that interview was to read… it makes me so gosh darn proud of Liam, Louis and Niall. I was already proud, but after reading this, combined with the little tidbit Niall shared a couple weeks back about having to play songs and essentially pitch himself to the label before they signed him, I think we all have a lot clearer of an understanding of just how hazy their futures were when the hiatus was announced. And of how terrifying that must have been. But, here they are. Working 100 times harder than they probably ever did in 1D to do right by themselves and right by their fans and make names for themselves and put out music that’s true to who they are as artists, against all the odds, and despite the majority’s resignation that H and Z were the only ones who would make it. That takes guts. And I’m really, really fucking proud of them.
What are your favorite fics?
