Look. I know Zayn and Louis applied for the same job. And Niall and Liam went to the same Busted concert (presumably when they were like 8 years old when Busted was touring before 1D was formed). Both of those things are neat coincidences.
But they aren’t very significant to any of them, because they’ve mentioned both of those things like one time in interviews over the course 6 years (and it was arguably to try and make the Script concert seem like less of a thing).
You know what’s significant? What Harry himself made significant?
The Script concert. He had to make a public declaration about it…twice!
“This place is incredible to me…I remember coming to quite a few gigs here. I remember I stood right there watching the Script and it turns out, Louis was at the same gig!“ - Manchester, 22 December 2011
“This venue is quite special to me. I’ve been to quite a few gigs here before. And I remember, about 3 years ago, I was stood just about there to watch the Script in here, and it turns out, that Louis was at the same gig!” - Manchester, 23 December 2011
Louis and Zayn have never described their mutual employment pursuits as “incredible” or “quite special.” And neither have Liam and Niall described the Busted concert that way, despite it being literally the same scenario as Louis and Harry attending a Script concert at the same venue on the same day.
So you have to wonder why Harry cares so much, why it’s such a curious thing that they were there, together, on the same night, at the same time, doing the same thing, and they didn’t even know each other.
But then fate twisted, and they did meet, and became so important to each other, that it made the night they missed each other that much more significant.
This year has been absolute hell & I’m pretty sure it was a curse, but all of you made this year a little more bearable just by existing and being in my life. Even those of you I only just got to know and those I barely talk to anymore, ily ♥
and thank you to everyone else, i appreciate every single one of you! my dash would be a lot more empty and a lot more boring without you, thank you all for brightening my experience and interacting with me! ♥
Some highlights from the gag greel of season 1 below. Tinhat point of view, as you might’ve guessed.
So, Jared and Jensen hadn’t known each other for very long when they were filming season 1 and already they were so comfortable.
Jensen was known as a quiet, professional sort of guy. So how did all of this happen?
Anything to make Jared laugh, right?
How does one achieve this level of familiarity in just a few months? My guess is that they were instantly attracted to each other and felt a connection, but were afraid to act on it at first. Perhaps a nudge is necessary…
Here Jared is pulling his charms on Taylor Cole. Pay attention to Jensen’s face. If he’s trying to make Jensen jealous (like I’m assuming here), he’s very successful! Much of the gag reel is flirting between Jared and Taylor. I can only imagine Jensen’s indignation, hahah.
(psst, he’s checking out
Jared is also doing his best to make Jensen laugh. That’s the other way to a man’s heart, right? If Jensen’s eyes are anything to go by, Jared’s got him hooked! ;)
Personal space was a myth right from the start.
Protect Jensen at all costs! Don’t let that beautiful face freeze!
Yeah, Jensen, you really seem annoyed.
Watch the entire gag reel here! I hope you enjoyed my little recap. I’ll be doing two each day of Christmas, last one coming out on Wednesday the 28th! Happy holidays, all you lovely people!
Here’s how I want Sarah Wright on NCISLA: some sort of BBQ thing backyard at Sam’s house and he invites his SEAL buddy who uses a cane, played by David Olsen. SEAL buddy brings his wife, played by Sarah. There’s a super brief but hilarious interaction when Kensi and Deeks come up. Just a fun cameo like when the moms were on. Team super other in-laws!
Allistic people need to stop describing things that an autistic person likes as that person’s ‘special interest.’ Look, I know that a lot of autistic people use that language. I know that that autistic person might have described those things as their ‘special interest’ but what you need to remember is that word is reclaimed.
‘Special interest’ is a phrase that mental health professionals and educators came up with to delegitimize the interests and passions of the autistic people under their ‘care.’ It is a word that specifically exists to dehumanize autistic people.
A lot of autistic adults who now use ‘special interest’ vocabulary have had that vocabulary turned against us and used as part of some very intense and institutionally sanctioned abuse, especially as children. I, personally, have had notebooks upon notebooks of my artwork ripped into confetti by a teacher because I ‘needed’ to grow out of my ‘special interests’ because they were ‘a distraction’ to me and ‘holding back my development.’ Literally nobody thought there was anything wrong with what she did.
So yeah, some of us do invoke that language because there’s some power in taking back that kind of language.
But it is power.
When we invoke that language it can be empowerment.
When you invoke that language you’re really no different than my old middle school teacher. You think that you’re using the ‘correct’ language or maybe some kind of chic but really you’re just wielding a weapon against us all.
There are some songs that you love for no reason, without any explanation. And the second reason for loving a song is that it means something special to you. It is like.. when you hear it, it reminds you the times you loved, times you vere happy or sad, it brings back deep memories that means much to you, or it reminds you of one special person with who you were listening that song or that person showed that song to you. And everytime you hear it, you start to feel very deep feelings. This song, Give Me Love, from Ed Sheeran reminds me of one person, of some special time when I was really, really happy. But it was not fake hapiness. It was real, honest and unfake hapiness. Sometimes, I wish I could bring that times back and take the chances that I have missed, but I know that it is not possible. I can just hope that one day, that chance will come to me again, I will take it and never let it go again..
