Summary: “Thank you,” Geoff says, taking a sip of his tea. “What did you tell him?”

Louis has a sip as well, lets the tea burn down his throat too quickly, too hot, and he feels it all the way down to his stomach. “The truth. Essentially,” he replies after a moment, licking his lips, relishing the slightly bitter taste of the brew that’s never quite strong enough for Louis’ liking. At least it’s not decaf. “That my dog scented it. That I didn’t touch the body. That I came here first thing.”

Geoff nods pensively. “Did he believe you?”

“Probably not. There’s only so many people who can drown on dry land before it gets fishy.”

or: Harry is a journalist, Louis has lots of secrets and the moors aren’t exactly the ideal place to rekindle a lost romance.

Dear Anon (who asked, “How can you be friends with people that are frankly bullies? There is a Larry circle of utter assholes and I’m just baffled at how vile they can be against Zayn.”),

It’s quite simple: I’m not. 

I don’t follow or surround myself with people that are bullies. And I certainly don’t follow anyone who is vile about Zayn given that I don’t believe the narrative that’s been built around him since March of 2015.

One of the first things Zayn said publicly after leaving was:

Even Simon’s version of this story is bullshit. Zayn wasn’t happy so Simon - Simon COWELL - let 1/5 of his main source of income just quit on the spot one day? And Simon was just like, “There he go…”

Because Simon Cowell just “heard about it” and gave it his best go at convincing Zayn to stay but in the end was like, “There, there. Here’s a record deal.” No. Simon Cowell is a manipulative psychopath and somehow managed to skirt over the fact that he relentlessly worked these boys as hard as he could for five years expecting them to die the noble death that most boybands do (RIP NSYNC) and trying to make as much money as possible off of them before they did. 

Zayn might be the literal embodiment of this gif:

But I still love that hoe. I love his music…literally the intro to Mind of Mine is some of the best fifty-seven seconds of music I’ve ever heard. Not to mention the rest of the album which deserved so much more than the half-arsed promo it got. No doubt thanks to the fact that it’s still linked to Syco’s ineptitude.  

So yeah when people are having their petty bitch fests about how much they hate Zayn I’m just like 

Because it is distinctly hypocritical to sit here and analyse everything ever about Louis and Harry but as soon as Dan fuckin Wootton whispers Zayn’s name it’s gospel? I think not. Niall even told everyone not to pay attention to the media.

Why has Liam gone out of his way to make everyone aware that he’s still friends with Zayn?

And why was Zayn part of the RBB tableaus? 

Five x’s for five members.

Look at all dat yellow.

So, yeah. That’s why every time I see people hating on Zayn I’m like 

I don’t know the truth, but I do know that what has been printed about Zayn leaving is so wildly inconsistent with the actions of the band and Zayn. And Liam is out here trying to shut down all the rumours himself. He gonna take everyone who badmouthed Zayn out like 

Anyway, I’m not posting that ask, since you explicitly asked me not to. Also it names specific people and I don’t need to give them any direct attention on my Pro-Zayn blog. 

If you’re interested in reading more about my thoughts on Zayn you can go here: or follow @mellygrant who is Zayn’s personal Hype Man.

And finally…for all the people being vile…just think, What Would Harry Styles Do? 

Thank you for your ask! xx
