A beautiful English love story.
Sports fans vs One Direction fans. Also I would like to note that I went on a night time tour at Woodlawn Cemetery this weekend (it was amaaazing!) and there was a girl in the group who had ICP written on her face in Sharpie and it was beautiful.

Louis: Basically the story was…there was a cow. It was making a noise like cows do…
Louis & Niall: Moooooooooo!
Zayn: It sounded like a person!
Louis: Liam being the heroic man that he is and was, decided he would go out there and try to save this “man,” which in fact was a cow. He hopped over the gate to this field and looked around and shouted, “Hello?! Hello?! Does anyone need any help?”
Zayn: I got a stick, wrapped a cloth around it and lit it on fire and went out. I thought I was Indiana Jones running after Liam with it.
Harry: It was like completely dark and Liam was stood on the fence going, “Is anybody out there?! Is anybody out there?!”
Niall: So Liam was going to take on some murderer down in the field and a horse comes running at me in the dark.
Louis: So then we all went back in, sat around the fire for a little bit and then decided to go to sleep. But in fact, quite embarrassingly, even though we were 99% sure it was a cow we didn’t really dare sleep in our own beds. We actually had to sleep on mattresses on the floor next to each other because we had no key for the door and we thought the cow/man [would come in and murder us].
This is the moment.
Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne have always insisted: Directioners are not crazy—and they’re not to be ignored. In interview after interview over the past three years, usually surrounded by thousands of screaming young women, the band has politely corrected reporters who characterize their followers as “insane” or “deranged.” “We prefer ‘passionate,’” they’ll demur. “Or ‘dedicated.’”
There’s more to this than semantics. Possibly you don’t realize how radical it is to see five guys treat young women with respect, and to demand that others do so as well, but it is. In a world where “fangirl” and “groupie” are routinely used to put down women who are enthusiastic about anything, One Direction stands in shocking contrast to their peers and to the culture as a whole.
Women need to make their own spaces as fans in a culture where most media ignores, sexualizes, trivializes, or attacks them—particularly women of color. Women control the budgets of fandom, buying 80% of sports clothing, and nearly 2/3rds of all books; women account for the majority of spending online; women are more likely to share and create online. The majority of fan fiction is written by women, putting ourselves and our stories into the worlds that we love. We change worlds, or try to, so that we can be heard. We scream and cry sometimes when we love things, like loving five guys who listen to us. But we’re not crazy—we’re just excited.”
Reblogging because these great quotes today:
"I think at that age you are passionate about everything. [If] you remember your first girlfriend at school when you’re 13, you convince yourself that you love her. I think looking in, not everyone can understand it but to that girl or that boy it might be the most important thing in the world. Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean you can say it’s crazy."
"They are so dedicated…our fans put us where we are. I don’t think it’s something that should be taken as a negative, I think passion’s good in any form."
