one direction meme: three live performances what makes you beautiful live @ the london 2012 olympic games closing ceremony (2/3)

“Now the final song in this section, perhaps the most innocent we’re coming up to date now. We’re with the current global phenomenon - One Direction! What makes you beautiful.”

anonymous asked:

you know what i've been thinking about? when 1d had interviews you heard them say over and over "i wanted to make something for the fans. i wanted to make something i knew they'd love." and since they (and harry particularly since he just released his single) have gone solo, you hear them say "i wanted to make something i'd love. something that i'd want to listen to on repeat." this is clearly his passion project and i'm just so proud of him (and the others).

Yesssss, so true!!!!! They could never really do that in 1D because they had to find a consensus. Now each of them can do exactly what they want - for themselves. It’s beautiful!

It is equally important that on this day of gratitude and recognition for the Greatest Pop Bop of All Time we also pay homage at the throne of One Direction Vevo and watch the video that helped change our lives.

Thank you. Amen.

my ziall fic rec

ummmm im doing this because i want to share my love for ziall fics with all of you and because every time i check the ziall tag there are peple asking for good ziall fics so HERE IS MY ZIALL FIC REC (i know im not a ziall blog/one direction blog but this is my twitter https://twitter.com/ziallvampire) ALL OF THEM ARE A MUST READ I WOULDN’T READ THEM IF THEY WEREN’T GOOD

summary:

“Zayn…babe talk to me, you okay?”

 “Babe??”

 “I love you, Zayn, always know that okay? I love you I love you I love you.”

When Zayn wakes up in the hospital, he doesn’t realise he’s just been in a car accident, doesn’t realise that things aren’t as they seem, and most importantly doesn’t realise he’s forgotten about the most important person in his life.

Amnesia fic, 96k words, chaptered, beautifully written, smut

summary:

Niall touches his cheek, careful, and Zayn can’t remember a time when he wasn’t waiting for this. Or that’s what it feels like, anyway: like he’s spent a good portion of his life standing at the edge of a cliff, toeing the line between being told who he was and knowing that the assumption was wrong somehow, between straight and -

And whatever Option B is.

51k words, chaptered, girl!liam (but it’s not important just focus on ziall), smut

summary:

“But really. Thank you, though,” Niall murmured.  

“For?” Zayn asked.  

“For fucking me like that. I admit I asked for it, so,” he shrugged, “yeah, thanks.”  

“It was my pleasure, love,” Zayn nodded. Niall laughed at his remark, at how literal he meant it.  

“I love you,” he responded wiping his mouth with his hand.  

“I love you, too. And thank you, though.”  

“For what?”  

“For everything else.”

AU where Niall’s a student and Zayn’s a professor and life can get really shitty

Student - Teacher AU, 140k, chaptered, REALLY FUCKING ANGST, but there’s heaps of fluff to make up for it, DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE SMUT, mature, FAVE FAVE FAVE FAVE FAVE, MY FAVE

summary:

zayn doesn’t want to date niall (except that he kinda does), niall has a secret, louis is a little shit, and harry and liam are the roommates that give (mostly) bad advice.

52k, such a wonderful plot, smut, don’t know what to say this story is just really beautiful and the ot5 game is strong, calum and luke from 5sos are in it im pretty sure, just read

summary:

Niall and Zayn grow closer on the European leg of the Where We Are Tour.

 Zayn hums again, low from the base of his chest and Niall’s hand skims down Zayn’s arm six more times, Niall counts them slowly to match his rhythm, before it feels a bit more natural.

 “Don’t think Perrie’ll make Paris,” Zayn finally says. And that’s that

30k, touring, friends to lovers, angst, this is so beautiful she portrays zaynandniall in such a beautiful way, smut

summary:

Niall tries not to think about it. Knowing something and doing something about it are two different things. If anything, he thinks he should feel relief. He’s one of the lucky ones. A lot of people never meet one of their soul mates, much less get to speak to them or see them every day. It doesn’t have to mean anything, he tells himself, and still loses his breath every time he catches Zayn on the stairwell, the crease of his smile, the way he laughs like he’s glad to see him.

 14k, Alternate Universe - College/University,  Alternate Universe - Soulmates, pining, this is SOSOSOSO cute

summary:

“As a starving artist writer type,” Louis sniffs, hooking his chin over Zayn’s shoulder, “you should be eating this shit up.”

 Or, the American College AU where Introvert Artist Zayn meets Scene Musician Niall, and things occur.

 24k, so beautiful i honestly love artist!zayn and musician!niall tgether in one fic, Alternate Universe - College/University, Amerian AU, smut

summary:

“And what about you? What do you want?”

Niall can’t find his voice but he wants to say you. I want you.

Or the one where Niall tries to help his friends figure out what makes them happy. For Niall? He just wants Zayn.

23k, BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFU BEAUTIFUL, smut, ignore the lirry it’s gross, bartender!niall, artist!zayn

summary:

"Don’t do dances,” Niall repeats with a smile. “Don’t do pool parties. What do you do, Zayn Malik?”

Zayn shrugs. “Play baseball. Date you.”

32k, smut, American baseball AU, really fucking cute, i love this it’s one of my faves, i can’t express how much i love this, it’s written beautifully

summary:

san diego au. zayn’s a brooklyn boy who follows his maybe-ex-girlfriend to san diego. it turns out a whole lot lovelier than he could have hoped.

 “Look at this little family,” Harry murmurs.

“You big softie,” Louis says, but his voice is so steeped in fondness that Zayn can almost taste it, and he feels warm in a way that has nothing to do with the crush of bodies around him. He cranes his head a little and Niall meets him halfway, anticipating it, grinning as their eyes meet and reaching a hand up to grip comfortingly at the back of Zayn’s neck. Yeah, his gaze says, you belong here. We want you here. I want you here.

And then the chicken is burning and Harry yelps like he’s the one being singed and they fall apart as easily as they fell together.

32k, smut, so beautiful, slow burn i guess

summary:

“Niall’s never seen romantic love in the real world. His parents were never married, but even the marriages he’s seen haven’t looked happy. He’s seen love in the movies, sure, but the movies aren’t about Dogtown. The romantic comedies aren’t about poor kids with fucked up parents. They aren’t about a skinny skater boy and his best friend. But maybe, he thinks, they should be.”

A Z-Boys AU.

31k, slow burn, o5 game is really strong, smut, surfing AU, skateboarding AU, cute cute cute

summary:

based off this thing i wrote, basically Niall has a secret admirer and everyone is an idiot

12k, really fucking cute jesus, smut, niall is adorable and zayn is adorable, university AU

summary:

Niall would pull him all the way if he could, wrap his sunlight infused hand around Zayn’s and pull them up until they couldn’t breathe. And Zayn would let him, only to return (loyal, dependable, periodic) and settle around his Sirius before he’d float off again.

22k, OK if you think the other fanfics are cute this one beats all of them by far, smut, beautiful, stars and shit

summary:

Zayn thinks being a college freshman with an English major and a boyfriend in a frat is enough for him  — until he loses a bet, loses The X-Factor and loses Niall

27k, ok i made me cry three times, cute really cute, smut, r&b star!zayn, frat!niall

summary:

“Harry,” Zayn feels like he’s losing it, “Harry, you know my life isn’t a romantic comedy, right? No matter how much you try and make it one.”

“Please, I’ve seen Love, Actually like… thirty times,” Harry says, grinning. “This is going to be so much better.”

56k, SLOW BURN, love their relationship in this, beautifully written

summary:

Back before Zayn became Zayn, he and Niall were together and happy. And they’d thought that Zayn’s dreams coming true would only make things better. But it didn’t work out that way and now the two of them are basically strangers.

Except strangers don’t hate eachother as much as Niall does Zayn, so maybe not. And because Niall has made this animosity very well known, he can’t for the life of him understand Zayn’s latest ploy that forces them to have contact again

125k, y’all this is so beautiful i am so glad i read this it’s absolutely amazing, slow burn, smut, MUST READ, lovers to haters to lovers again, famous!zayn
