This is the most ridiculous post I’ve ever written, but I can’t get the idea out of my head, so it needs to be done. I originally wanted to post this on July 23, which is the day One Direction was created, but then my blog went on hiatus, and, well, oops.
This is going to be a masterpost full of gifs, pictures and videos, highlighting why I am desperately in love with Harry Styles. I hope you enjoy it!
He has the most ridiculous sense of humour
Dad jokes. So many dad jokes.
Just being cheeky in interviews.
He loves to call out dads in the crowd. He probably wants to exchange jokes.
He seriously has the best lines.
Making fun of celebrity requests on tour.
And making fun of moms who use their daughters to talk to the boys when they’re actually the ones in love with them. His face in this gif is EVERYTHING.
The funniest thing about One Direction is that they never talk about Zayn. They avoid that topic like it’s hellfire – but sometimes they hint at it, and it’s hilarious.
Also he likes to lean on things like a super model.
Sometimes he’s just really gay
There’s a series of interviews that’s like my personal bible. Harry just didn’t even care.
At one point they were talking about what their dream-woman would be like, and I think Liam laughed and said something like “she should be female”. And Harry just kinda:
DON’T DO THAT TO ME.
Also from that same series … I still don’t have words for this.
That answer became like a sacred thing in the Harry fandom, and for weeks Tumblr was full of gifs like this one:
One time at a concert this guy was on stage with them, and Harry just started taking off his shirt and selling him to the crowd. It’s still one of the most ridiculously gay things that man has done. Harry taking off another man’s shirt ON STAGE is like Christmas to me, I’m still not over it.
Also, these two are real headlines:
And just, you know, dancing on stage with a pair of angel wings.
ALSO ALL THE RAINBOW THINGS. That man is like a walking pride parade.
And the epic running-with-a-rainbow-flag thing. Yeah, that happened.
He also made the worst joke ever when Liam and a guy in the crowd were having a moment. I’m still laughing at this.
It’s okay, Harry, I ship them too.
Masculinity? Gender norms? Yeah, right
His mom retweeted this. His mom.
Also that time he went to some event dressed like a flower curtain and just didn’t even care.
He has the most beautiful face ever
This here is my favourite picture of Harry in the whole world. It was my lock screen image for a really long time.
And THIS. It still takes my breath away, look at this masterpiece of a human.
I’m not even gonna reduce the size of the picture, it’s too pretty.
He also looks absolutely STUNNING when he’s singing.
He has the most adorable little laugh.
And the most beautiful hair.
He’s so pretty a fan named Maëlys even made this:
I approve 100%.
He’s pretty damn weird
I think even he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
What is that pose, Harry?
He definitely can’t dance … but he doesn’t care
He loves his fans (and making fun of them)
Fans who dance funny are his favourites.
But he loves all of them – whether they yawn at his concerts …
… do really weird stuff …
… or are just really excited to be there.
There are some delightful short videos of Harry calling out fans at his shows, so I’m gonna leave a few of them here. Seriously, they’re hilarious.
Here’s Harry calling out a man who won’t put his hands in the air:
Making fun of a woman who’s talking on the phone instead of enjoying the show:
Lovingly making fun of a man who is very tall:
Getting cookies as a present from a fan and being happy about the box:
He’s kind and wonderful
I like that he’s not in-your-face about how lovely he is. He never brags, never talks about all the kind things he does, never shows off. He’s just a really good person, and a lot of the great things he does go unnoticed. He does them quietly – instead of talking about something in a interview he might just do a small gesture to show his support for a cause. I like that.
This is by far my favourite story:
I’d also like to remind everyone that he was already a stand up guy and a feminist when he had just started his career, which I think is remarkable considering he was just, like, 17? 18? Most male musicians kinda suck at that age, and he was already absolutely delightful.
Harry showing his support at a concert for openly gay NFL player Michael Sam:
It’s very important for young people to have good role models, people they can look up to. That’s why I love Harry so much; he knows that what he says and does has a big impact on all his fans, and he handles that responsibility really well.
He’s absolutely adorable and everyone knows it
His sweater got stuck on a plant once and he was really confused about it.
LOOK AT HIM. He’s small and the sun is too bright. WHAT A PUPPY.
Just generally being cute.
Even Liam knows that Harry’s adorable.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THIS IS BUT I’M DEAD.
Now, I think that’s a good picture to end with. I spent literally the whole day working on this post, and what’s the result? An absolutely useless incident of dramatic fangirling. YOU’RE WELCOME.
Does anyone else want to marry him or is it just me? Any other bookish Harry fans out there? I’d love to share the excitement.
‘Till next time and happy
