BACK TOGETHER: One Direction reunite backstage at the X Factor to support Louis Tomlinson after mum’s death

The boys joined Louis in his dressing room to support him after the death of his mum Johannah at the age of 43 

Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne were backstage in Louis’s dressing room at the Wembley Arena as he performed just days after the tragic death of his beloved mother Johanna from leukaemia.

The chart-topping bandmates have not been in the same room together since last December after going on a long-term hiatus.

But an X Factor source revealed: “Harry, Niall and Liam all wanted to be there to support Louis tonight for what was undoubtedly one of the most difficult moments of his life.

“It was an incredible and special thing for them to get back together as a four and be like brothers again.

“Niall flew in overnight from New York so he could be there and Liam came from Los Angeles. It was that important they were together.

“They were all in Louis’s dressing room together and it was obviously an incredible emotional night.”

The world’s biggest band were discovered on X Factor in 2010 and signed to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco.

But the last year has seen them go their separate way, with all four members launching their own solo careers.

Former member Zayn Malik was not backstage at X Factor for the reunion, but tweeted his support to Louis after learning of Johanna’s death.

Louis, 24, performed his debut single Just Hold On with DJ Steve Aoki as a tribute to Johannah, who died on Wednesday after a long secret battle with leukaemia.

Speaking after the performance, Simon Cowell told a tearful Louis: “I have to say something to you. I’ve known you for six years, what you’ve just done - the bravery.

"I respect you as an artist and I respect you as a person. Your mum was so proud of you Louis and she was so looking forward to this performance. She’s watching over you now and you’ve done her so proud.”

The poignant lyrics to the song include: “What do you do when a chapter ends / Do you close the book and never read it again / Where do you go when your story’s done / You can be who you were or who you’ll become.”

Louis tweeted on Saturday afternoon: “All the support has been incredible! Let’s do this together tonight.”

what amazes me is how widely different music the boys seem to be making like niall’s song is so stripped down and simple while louis’ is more up beat and edm and then you have liam working w rappers and niall talking about harry’s rockier sound like they’ve made 5 albums as one direction and now they’re able to go off on their own and try new sounds they wouldn’t have been able to as a group and i’m so happy for all of them?? they’re all so talented and amazing both as a group and as solo artists wow

Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.

The Kids Are Alright: Part 2

April 5, 1998

*silence*

Neville: I… I’m sorry I haven’t come… in a while. Things have been *sighs* complicated, with school. 

Frank: *stares blankly ahead, his breathing steady and slow* 

Neville: I mean… we were already sort of friends *coughs* s-sort of… but now… *smiles softly* I’ve already told you about Ginny… and Ron and Hermione… and Harry-

Neville: I don’t think I told you about her… *falters* I’m sorry it’s been so long… I should have come sooner… *shakes his head, nervously fiddling with an empty wrapper in his hand* 

Frank: *suddenly reaches out to Neville, his hand shaking* 

Neville: *stares* … Yeah Dad? 

Frank: *slowly moves his hand away from Neville, picking a feather up off of his bedside table* 

Neville: Oh… 

Neville: *softly* Dad… please listen. *reaches out and gently pulls the feather from Frank’s trembling fingers* 

Frank: *quickly draws his hands back as if he’s been burned* 

Neville: We’re in the middle of a war… and I don’t think Hogwarts is safe anymore. They’re coming for us. *takes a deep, shuddering breath* 

… I’m scared.

I’m scared… 

Neville: I-I don’t know why the hat put me in Gryffindor. I’m not brave, like you were. 

Neville: I hate that you’re here, but you can’t hear a word I say. I just wish… 

Frank: *jerks, his eyes shutting tightly* 

Neville: *gasps* Oh no! I-I’m sorry… I know this isn’t fair… It’s not your fault you-

Neville: *stares, heart racing* I’m sorry… 

Neville: *gently places a hand on Frank’s shoulder* 

Frank: *freezes* *slowly begins to breathe again, allowing his tensed body to relax* 

Neville: *quietly* I-I have to leave now… *slowly stands, tucking the empty wrapper into his pocket*
