anonymous asked:

Can you explain the 'winding wheel' reference to me? I know he tweeted that on her birthday or something?? Or am I wrong? Lol, I've only been part of the fandom for about 1 year. Is that reference to a song or poem? Thanks!

So the story started on Taylor’s 24th birthday: December 13, 2013. Harry tweeted this:

These are lyrics from Ryan Adams’ song My Winding Wheel. It’s important to note that Ryan Adams is one of Taylor’s favorite musicians, and by December 13, 2013, she had already even collaborated with him on an unreleased song.

Here are the complete lyrics:

Well nighttime let her through
Yeah I’m talking to you
I want to see her
Precious little thing

With eyes that dance around without their clothes
So buy a pretty dress
Wear it out tonight
For anyone you think could out do me

Or better still be my winding wheel
Cause I feel just like a map
Without a single place to go of interest
And I’m further north than south

If I could shut my mouth she’d probably like this
So buy a pretty dress
And wear it out tonight
For all the boys you think could out do me
Or better still be my winding wheel

Be my winding wheel
Well the children laugh and sing a song that ushers in her driving rain

And I’m standing in the station like some old record waiting on a train
So buy a pretty dress
Wear it out tonight
For anyone you think could out do me
Or better still be my winding wheel

Be my winding wheel

And here is a live performance:

Ryan Adams said that he used the metaphor of a winding wheel to describe the “ultimate soulmate”.

I change my mind occasionally about the meaning of the lyrics that dare her to go out and find someone better than him. Is the bravado stemming from a real fear that they will come and go from each others’ lives even though they are soulmates? Or is he being purely playful because he knows that they are soulmates and she will never leave him?

Fast forwarding over a year, and My Winding Wheel appeared again when Harry posted this on Instagram in February 2015, following the Brit Awards (when the first pictures of Calvin and Taylor were taken and the romance rumors started):

Okay, 2016 was hard as hell, i think we can all agree on that, can’t we? But if there is something that kept me sane and distracted during this living hell, well, those are fics, guys. I would like to thank every single author i will mention in a bit, for making my year a bit better, a little less heavy, filling it with beautiful words and dreams of love. ♥

A big thank you goes also to the lovely ladies that were just as helpful, bringing some of these fics to my attention but, more importantly, making my year feel lighter, filling it with fun, support and lots of virtual cuddling: @otpwhatever, @cuethetommo, @skylinethroughthewindow, @tomlinsuntea, @fireproofau and @coziestlouis 💕

So, here is a list of the best fics that i’ve read this year, in chronological order. 

[note: the list includes only fics that have been posted this year but also chaptered fics that were posted at the end of 2015 but have been completed in 2016]

anonymous asked:

What is the significance of harrys ig post about the water wheel or something? That kinds looks like idk like gives old asian garden vibes?

he actually tweeted lyrics before that: “better still, be my winding wheel”. and it just so turns out that the writer of the song says it’s about soulmates, then he proceeded to post that on ig. this sap.

anonymous asked:

Ok I wanna give y'all a quick rundown on "Winding Wheel" haylor. Ryan Adams is one of Taylor's favorite artist & it's thought she introduced Harry to Ryan Adams music because she's such a fan. On Dec 13th 2013 he tweeted "Better still, be my winding wheel" You have to go listen to the song. It's a beautiful, sad song about loving a girl he's lost. Anyway he tweeted the lyrics on Taylor's birthday. You can only imagine what us Haylors were thinking when we saw it!

the one in which Louis suffered from a brain aneurysm, causing him to lose his short-term memory every morning. Featuring Niall as the one who stays, Liam as the one who understands, Zayn as the one who leaves, and Harry as the only one Louis really, really needs to remember.

Future fic. The band goes on their last tour.

Louis and Harry have recently ended their three year relationship. But maybe a little holiday magic can bring them back together.  

“You’ll never guess what happened,” she continues, not giving him the chance to reply. “Louis Tomlinson RSVP’d to my wedding!” she reveals cheerfully like it’s a completely normal thing for her to say, like she hangs out with Academy Award winners all the damn time.

“What the fuck?” Harry replies and he’s seriously considering pinching himself.

Harry is screwed.

Louis isn’t someone who Harry thought he could ever be with, and Louis never thought he’d break his rules for anyone.

Louis and Harry have a complicated past, Louis is getting married to someone that’s not Harry, and the universe has decided to have a laugh and make Harry the wedding planner.

anonymous asked:

See I could've totally be on board with the album being about Kendall if he showed signs of caring deeply about her(not saying he didn't). He legit tweeted "Better still be my winding wheel" while dating Kendall on Taylor's bday(Hendall 1.0), and he went back to London after their nye vacation, then we have Kendall leaving Jeff's bday looking mad. He also didn't seem to mind seeing her kiss someone on her bday(LOVE mag pics)...

That’s why I think it was more serious for her than it was for him… And that’s what the songs are about. Why it was more serious for her, why it wasn’t more serious for him, how he feels about her now, how he felt about her then. Which would make for great art, I think

anonymous asked:

Hiiii Emma!! I was wondering if you know any fics where Harry woos Louis and is really persistent? But Louis puts up a fight or is wary of him? Something like Soft Hands Fast Feet Can't Lose. I'm in love with that fic tbqh. Thank you!! :)

Your wish is a command. 

we’re the sparks that never fade by crucios 

Louis rests his chin against his knees and stares up through his eyelashes. “So what’d your shrink say, then? Are you certifiable?” he asks seriously; he’s wearing a beanie hat and a knitted scarf now, and his cheeks and nose are tinged pink with the cold. Harry wants to tell him he looks like winter, but he doesn’t.

or, a garden state au in which harry doesn’t even know what’s wrong with him, louis lies a lot, and in the end it doesn’t really matter because all they needed was each other

Swim In The Smoke by whoknows 

“What about this, Captain?” Liam asks, nudging the boy kneeling between their feet with the toe of his boot. The boy hisses and swipes at him, slurring out something unintelligible around the makeshift gag Niall had to stuff in his mouth. He misses by a mile and tries again, just as ineffectively.

Harry looks down at him, at the way the sun streams over his face and shoulders, at the way the gag stretches his mouth, lips pink and chapped. He’s lithe and pretty, smudged all over with dirt. They had found him tied up below deck, mostly unconscious, next to a barrel full of gold. He’s clearly a prisoner, but there’s something familiar about him, something that niggles at Harry’s brain. Something he can’t quite put his finger on.

“Put him in my cabin,” Harry decides, turning back to deal with the rest of the loot. The boys screams out jumbled curse words at Harry’s back, muffled by the gag, and Harry can’t understand any of it.

Ace by aclosetlarryshipper 

It’s real. He can’t keep denying it. Denial has just made things more difficult. Acceptance is the first stage to anything.

Louis sniffles and pulls the sun visor down, flipping it open to reveal the mirror. He stares into his own icy eyes, grimacing at the red rim around the edges.

He tries to say the words, but they still feel too final and condemning.


The sexuality crisis you probably haven’t read.

part 2 - Ace 2.0

Red Brick Heart by hazmesentir

Harry has only had his room for thirty-two minutes when it stops being his.

Uni AU. Harry had turned up at the halls of residence expecting fun, new friends, and maybe a life experience or two. What he doesn’t expect is a surprise roommate who’s loud and dramatic and obsessed with tea and is maybe, actually, all he’s ever wanted.

better still, be my winding wheel by theweightofus

“give me a valid reason not to go” louis suddenly says, looking at harry right in the eye.
harry feels tired and just wants to fall asleep in a bed with louis’ arms wrapped around him right now, but he manages to think about it for a moment.
“because i need you” he says in the end, hugging louis until the train leaves.

or the one where louis runs away and harry always stops him, until he can.

for all the things my hands have held (the best by far is you) by scagnetism

“When will we sleep for more than three hours uninterrupted?”

“Eighteen more years,” Louis replies jokingly, his laughter rumbling through Harry’s body. “We’ll get through it.”

“The dream team,” Harry says, and Louis pulls him in closer.

Or, the one where Harry worries about raising two kids, but Louis knows they’ll always be okay.

Soft Hands, Fast Feet, Can’t Lose by dolce_piccante

American Uni AU. Harry Styles is a frat boy football star from the wealthy Styles Family athletic dynasty. A celebrity among football fans, he knows how to play, he knows how to party, and he knows how to fuck (all of which is well known among his legion of admirers).

Louis Tomlinson is a student and an athlete, but his similarities to Harry end there. Intelligent, focused, independent, and completely uninterested in Harry’s charms, Louis is an anomaly in a world ruled by football.

A bet about the pair, who might be more similar than they originally thought, brings them together. Shakespeare, ballet, Disney, football, library chats, running, accidental spooning, Daredevil and Domino’s Pizza all blend into one big friendship Frappucino, but who will win in the end?

Bigger Than Life by rippedgloves

“Boybander Harry Styles spotted leaving West Hollywood joined hand in hand with new beau, Xander Ritz”

His heart drops in his chest as he scrolls down, ignoring the short irrelevant article and looking desperately for a picture. Sure enough, there’s pap shots of Harry and Xander, walking hand in hand, looking drunk and cheerful and together.

And that’s—that’s really not what Louis was expecting at all.

taking tips and getting stoned by alison

Louis drives a taxi. He hasn’t seen Harry in eight years when they have a chance meeting.

A lot has changed in that time. But not everything.

It started with a whisper by jaded25 

Louis doesn’t do relationships. He’s been there, done it, got the scars to prove it. Never letting anyone too close, Louis can be head over heels for someone for one night but when morning comes, he will be out of the door, no feelings and no regrets.

Harry always gives too much, trusts too easily, falls too quickly. Even when he gets nothing in return.
Forced to attend University, Harry bumps into his sister’s roommate and another time, another day Harry would have been a goner the very second he’d laid eyes on Louis. But he’s already got the perfect boyfriend and Louis is the complete opposite of perfect.

Louis isn’t someone who Harry thought he could ever be with, and Louis never thought he’d break his rules for anyone.

Sometimes being wrong isn’t so bad after all.

The Stars In Your Eyes Light Up The Sky by andthensusays

Once again, Harry’s life was on a fast track into seriously uncharted territory. He had known from the moment he’d woken up on that horrible morning that he would have no choice other than to come out. Publicly.

Harry Styles, the first publicly gay Prince of England in British History.

That would be his luck.


The one where Harry is a prince forced out of the closet and Louis is a boybander forced in. When they meet, everything changes.

Frame of Hearts by sincehewaseighteen

The abandoned tree house was something to poke Louis’ curiosity. His secret is kept, until he finds someone else trespassing inhis tree house.

or the au where louis is eight and he has tantrums all the time and runs away but one time he runs somewhere and finds a treehouse, then goes back to find harry, then they both share and grow up and fall in love.

Fake It Till You Make It by thealmightyavocado

In a twisted turn of events, Louis finds himself posing as the brother of his fiancé, Harry, for an annual company retreat.

Did he sign up for this? No.

Is he doing it anyway? Yes.

Can they actually pull this off? Probably not.

anonymous asked:

Ok I have a question. I wasn't in the haylor ship when the whole "better still be my winding wheel " started. Can you explain me why this is a Haylor​ thing? I was watching a video and I didn't know what meant.

To be honest, I don’t know the whole story of it. I just know it’s a pretty haylor song that Harry tweeted the lyrics to on Taylor’s birthday.
