one direction for ts

bravegrrl asked:

why is louis where the wild things are? thoroughly interested in your opinion here, i adore the way you talk about these boys

louis is where the wild things are because louis is about being horrible, louis is about feeling walls close around you and being an insufferable brat in defiance, louis is about drawing your fur suit tight over your skin, louis is about bared sharp little teeth and paper crowns, louis is about love that is also an unrelenting hunger, louis is about not wanting to be seen and louis is about refusing to fucking shut up, louis is about the unexpected kindness of tiny merciless kings, louis is about not trusting yourself to be soft or good, and louis is about wanting someone to love you best of all. louis is about the wild rumpus.

Watch on delladilly.tumblr.com

i get very angry about how beautiful zayn is and how incomparable is every angle of his face and every improbably divine note he produces that lifts us up unto the heavens and then i get very tragic about how beautiful zayn is and how hideous and foolish are all the masses of us who see only his beauty and halt before it and forget that he is also A BEAUTIFUL FRAGILE GLORIOUS HUMAN SOUL, no mere angelic instrument of some COSMIC PRESENCE like ugh why am i so shallow why are we all so unworthy IS BEAUTY ALL THAT MATTERS TO US???????????? 

anyway that is why i am angry crying on zayn malik’s birthday at this video of him speaking slowly and carefully and self-consciously about how he is A UNIQUE PERSON, saying like more often than not and earnestly piecing together his truth of things, telling you about how sometimes people try to tell zayn malik his clothing choices are not cool but ZAYN MALIK DECIDES WHAT’S COOL, zayn malik detailing for you how his values come from the women who raised him— MUM, HIS AUNTIES, HIS SISTERS—

zayn malik struggling to explain the emotional connections between his art forms, zayn malik trespassing on the ineffability of creation, like there are feelings and expression and interpretation and they are altogether too muddled up but zayn malik will try to detail this process for you, art is a safe space and he wants you to share that, even as he fingerquotes the impossibility and cliche of “expressing yourself”— what! how!— zayn malik telling you about how his grandma’s an amazing artist and his dad’s an amazing artist and his older sister’s an amazing artist— and he can draw a little bit haha

ZAYN MALIK, a symphony, a singular voice, a beating human heart, pearl joy packed, how do u hold a moonbeam in your hand, DON’T GET TOO CAUGHT UP IN THE IMPOSSIBLE BEAUTY OF ZAYN MALIK’S EXISTENCE AND FORGET TO ATTEND TO THE IMPORTANCE OF ZAYN MALIK’S BEING, is what i mean, i think, that is all for today, happy birthday zayn malik, amen

HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE HARRY STYLES

HOW DO YOU CATCH A CLOUD AND PIN IT DOWN

HOW DO YOU FIND A WORD THAT MEANS HARRY STYLES

A FLIBBERTIJIBBERT. A WILL O’ THE WISP. A CLOWN. 

MANY A THING YOU KNOW YOU’D LIKE TO TELL HIM. MANY A THING HE OUGHT TO UNDERSTAND. 

BUT HOW DO YOU MAKE HIM STAY AND LISTEN TO ALL YOU SAY. HOW DO YOU KEEP A WAVE UPON THE SAND. 

HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE HARRY STYLES. HOW DO YOU HOLD A MOONBEAM IN YOUR HAND.

WHEN I’M WITH HIM I’M CONFUSED OUT OF FOCUS AND BEMUSED AND I NEVER KNOW EXACTLY WHERE I AM.

UNPREDICTABLE AS WEATHER. HE’S AS FLIGHTY AS A FEATHER. HE’S A DARLING. HE’S A DEMON. HE’S A LAMB.

HE’D OUTPESTER ANY PEST. DRIVE A HORNET FROM ITS NEST. HE COULD THROW A WHIRLING DERVISH OUT OF WHIRL.

HE IS GENTLE HE IS WILD HE’S A RIDDLE HE’S A CHILD. HE’S A HEADACHE. HE’S AN ANGEL.

HE’LL ALWAYS BE YOUR BOY.

So uh…I may or may not have spent this entire holiday break letting this very bad person get me into a British band of teenage looking man children I still feel wrong about finding attractive…

But let’s just say for argument’s sake that I have and let’s JUST SAY it’s gotten really bad and let’s JUST SAY FOR A MOMENT that I want to reblog All The Things but wish to spare my followers of my descent to hell.

Surely if all these things happened the sensible thing for me to do would be brainwashing  starting a sub blog to let out all my frustration until this illness goes away (I’ve been informed it doesn’t go away but I have hope.)

I sure am glad all of this is hypothetical and I don’t have to do any of that. Ha. Hahahahahaha. Could you imagine?

Anyway here’s the sub blog.

I’m so sorry.

THE PRESENT I MADE FOR ASHLEY IS A STORY, IT IS A STORY ABOUT TRAGIC TOO-DETERMINED BABY LIAM WHO HAS NO FRIENDS BECAUSE HE’S UNGAINLY AND WEIRD AND OVEREAGER AND WITH BAD HAIR

AND THEN HE FINDS OUT HE IS ADOPTED AND A GOD. he can come back to heaven with his joyous loving god dad (NIALL) if he works real hard and becomes A TRUE HERO, don’t worry HE WILL. he’s gonna be the biggest hero, he won’t let you down, just wait and see, he’ll finally be where he belongs!!!!!

ALSO HE IS REUNITED WITH HIS CHILDHOOD BEST FRIEND AND NOBLE STEED STYLESUS THE FLYING MAGICAL DORK PONY

this is very important to me

and they go off to study with tiny irritable inhuman hero-trainer known only as the tommo. 

training montage, liam gets freakhot but no less genuine naive wholesome weirdo determined loser A TRUE HERO!!!!!!!!!!!!

at which point he stumbles coltish feet first into jaded deadpan secretly sensitive disgustingly beautiful “his friends call him zayn at least they would if he had any friends.” zayn is not sure what to make of our rugged hero.

IS WONDERBOY HERE FOR REAL. zayn sold his soul to the devil to buy a house for his mom & his faith in humanity was lost when the housing bubble burst or something???? i am not sure about the economy

he seduces stumbling infatuated liam through unnecessary displays of vulnerability, zayn has weak ankles, but he does not let himself enjoy liam’s STRONG HANDS carefully touching the soft planes of zayn’s skinny back, zayn is very good at what he does, and he has LOST ANY REASON TO BELIEVE THERE COULD BE MORE his only outlet is in his tender graffiti art expressing his SOUL, sky on the top grass on the bottom, zayn whispers to himself and buries his pain

UGH LIAM IS SO INTO ZAYN’S ART, IT’S ALMOST LIKE LIAM SEES INTO THE TORN SWEETNESS OF ZAYN’S DEEPEST BEING, ZAYN ALMOST CAN IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO LET HIMSELF BE LOVED, TO FEEL HIS DELICATE FACE CRADLED SOFTLY IN LIAM’S BIG CAREFUL HANDS, BUT HE HAS A JOB TO DO

DUET WITH THE MUSES, no i’m alright babes i’m not in love aha

WILL ZAYN BE ABLE TO CAST ASIDE THE BURDEN OF THE BARGAIN HE MADE WITH HELL LORD BEN WINSTON??? WILL LIAM ABANDON HIS YOUTHFUL DREAM OF GLOWING GODSHOOD IN ORDER TO TWIRL ZAYN AROUND FOREVER IN HIS ARMS AND SEE IN ZAYN’S WARM GENTLE TEASING EYES AT LAST THAT LIAM BELONGS????????????????

COME ON & SHOUT IT FROM THE MOUNTAINTOPS

GUYS I JUST FOUND OUT my littlest sister’s friend’s father is a security guard for 1d which I DIDN’T KNOW LIKE HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS VITAL INFORMATION WHY AM I NOT FRIENDS WITH THIS 16YO WHAT DOES SHE KNOW but apparently once she was on the phone with her dad while he was at work and there was all this noise in the background and then he suddenly yelled HARRY DON’T FUCKING TOUCH THAT and hung up

THE OBJECTIVELY MOST IMPORTANT ONE DIRECTION VIDEOS!!!!!!!! an introductory masterpost based solely on my personal interest in watching cute dorks make each other giggle

anonymous asked:

so you think harry is gay

i am responding to exactly this one asshole anon about this and then never again because as i said to my crew i am going to seize this opportunity to make a somewhat definitive Critical Stance THING

here is the thing, is i know it’s like the Done thing in rpf fandom to be like WHATEVER I DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT ANY DIRECTIONS ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE MY TEXTUAL CONSTRUCTIONS ABOUT THE DIRECTIONS we can’t know them we can’t know anyone can we even know ourselves??? it doesn’t matter let’s spin into the void!!!

and like— i really really like parts of that response insofar as my engagement and investment in one direction is not solely in like, real human people that i don’t know, but in the characters we interpret from them and in the cultural conversations that happen around them like something i say a lot (??? when did i become a person who says this a lot) is that one direction is basically a way of talking about ourselves but magnified and removed enough that it doesn’t quite feel so raw, you know? which is not to say it doesn’t still MAKE YOU WANT TO JAR YOURSELF IMMEDIATELY but it’s easier to explore and express your own struggles of identity and society when you are objectively projecting them onto loser megasuccessful silly boys at whom you can laugh

like it’s a weird simultaneous thing and two not even separate processes— one direction happy silly pop music babies makes me happy and distracted from my things, i don’t feel threatened and i’m in charge, and also one direction lets me safely talk and cry about my things, or imagine or examine anew my things

so there is that!!! but also, at a point, where i am a queer person struggling to exist in the world and be Real and not be alone, it feels absurd to just pretend that everyone in the world is and must be straight unless they take me personally in hand and say ANNA I’M A GAY. like, i am ENORMOUSLY silenced and erased from my own culture, and i am allowed to resist that. i am allowed to assume that other people are queer until proven straight. i am allowed not to pretend that it’s a horrible insulting degrading thing to be gay at all and that i should therefore give people THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. i am allowed to assume that people might be like me just because i want to— because i need to. 

but also, i think that assuming people might be like me is REALLY IMPORTANT WORK in unmaking the structures that assume i and others don’t even exist. i also think that talking about it in safe queer spaces with other safe queers is really important boy band work!!!!!

like, obviously it’s wrong to out people, it’s wrong to harass and bully and other people. one direction fandom is SO DEEPLY FUCKED UP ABOUT THIS and like disrespectful and lacking basic empathy and fetishizing The Tragedy Of The Gays and demanding that others’ identities or relationships must be exposed for their own emotional benefit like fans are so presumptuous and demanding and expectant and it’s the fucking worst, don’t ever talk to anyone about anything

but it’s not wrong to think, when people remind you of yourself or your own experiences, to think that they might be like you. and i think that hilariously this is actually INEXTRICABLE from my first bit— about one direction being a way of talking about myself. i mean it’s disingenuous to pretend i don’t recognize and understand experiences similar to mine, even if i don’t wanna talk to straight people about it and straight people shouldn’t get to talk about it at all. 

like i won’t be complicit in mine and others’ erasure, i guess, is my definitive stance on hollering about one direction all the time.
