So what if I’m writing a canon-compliant Cinderella-based, sparkly-shoe inspired ficlet?
I can do that if I want to.
Watching SNL today with my man (not a 1D fan).
Story of my Life Comes on.
Louis steps up.
Man: Oh my God. I just want to feed him.
It’s weird when you get an outsider’s perspective like that.

I fully acknowledge that these are set up, but damn… he’s an attractive motherflipper.
As a gay guy I sometimes wonder what it must feel like to have an extremely large group of people almost constantly speculating on your sexuality and being unable to say anything about it being true.
The pressure of that is extraordinary, and I honestly can’t believe they’ve managed for so long.
In high school I was kind of well known because I was loud and silly, and I was pretty camp so people used to ask me directly all the time if I was gay. I went to a kind of shitty, homophobic school, so the question was rarely from a place of love (and often it was shouted across the grass). I actually know what it’s like to have people aggressively speculate about your sexuality and not feel like you can be honest for fear of terrible repercussions… But I cannot for the life of me imagine what it must be like at the scale at which Harry and Louis go through it.
I don’t think gay rumours have an effect on them, but I definitely think not being able to adequately address the speculation or feeling like addressing it properly will put them in a dangerous situation definitely affects them…
Q:There has been a lot of speculation about the changing of management after the year is up, and thus the ending of Elounor- and I'm sure the ending of a whole plethora of other things. But is it possible that they just renegotiated the contract? That way all the people who work with 1d, but are hired by mm! aren't out of a job, but the boys get what they want? mm! would be stupid not to do everything they could to keep them on board.
Well, there are several possibilities.
— It’s a five-year contract or some other deal meaning it’s not up for renewal in mid-December 2013.
— It’s a three-year contract up for renewal in mid-December 2013.
— They completely change management companies (with the quality of that management company and the nature of closeting restrictions an unknown).
— They stay with Modest, but negotiate terms more favorable to themselves (they have power and experience they didn’t have previously).
— They stay with Modest and things carry on the same as before.
I’d say the last option is the least likely.
But yeah I don’t know.
Second and third, in my opinion - if Syco dumped Modest, they’ll have had their reasons; and so will 1D, with Syco’s support. I have the impression that this breakup thing is so well planned and well organized that it’s aready someone else pulling the strings, ie we are already in handover period.
What I didn’t know was that the renewal was as early as Mid-december - I urgently need to go clear my agenda (and keep my fingers crossed this doesn’t break on the 17th, or sooner).
Yes, perfect schema.
I think the first option is also one of the least likely, because the one with Syco was a three-year contract.
My bet is:
2 a) It’s a three-year contract and they change management companies
2b) It’s a three-year contract and they stay with Modest, but they renegotiate the terms. (but Kat’s ecception -Syco dumped Modest- is legit)
However that may be, Elounor contract is likely ending and will not be renowed.
My personal feeling on the matter is that we’re very likely to see a contract extension.
It’s such a massive organisational structure, and it really is difficult to change management companies. (That’s not to say people don’t do it, cause they do.)
I’m hoping for a full transition in line with Syco moving on from them, but I’m just not holding my breath.
Re Eleanor: I just don’t know at all. We’ve been surprised before.
The real, PG-13ish version.
OKay, whether or not you’re a fan of the Jonas Brothers, take a few minutes and read this. And then try to tell me that a celebrity would never lie, that they aren’t media trained and that all is as it seems.
We were just kids. That’s the reality. We were frightened little kids. So you got all this responsibility that’s foisted upon you and you’re expected to be perfect. I went through media training, and I hated it. They’d teach you how to change the subject, whenever you were asked an uncomfortable question, by saying something like, “Oh, that reminds me of my dog! I have a great story about my dog!” Playing dumb is the best way of getting out of anything. We also had a strategy for who would take which kinds of questions. If it was a serious question, Nick would answer it. If it was lighthearted, Kevin would. Nick and I took questions related to our music and explaining what certain songs meant. We even did a Good Housekeeping story with our mom where we were wearing these horrible pastels. It makes me cringe just to think about it.
