Ahahaha THIS. During Bootcamp Zayn is freaking out and refusing to dance and having a mental breakdown and Louis is in the background messing with the choreography they're supposed to be memorizing. Oh, boys.
Also, once during the X factor the boys got 2 hours off and Louis disapeared without telling anyone where he was going. Everyone started freaking out and they alerted hospitals and police stations around the city that he had gone missing. At midnight he called to tell them that he had gone home to see his mum.

Zayn is gorgeous. This may be the most important thing about the band. Zayn is actually unbelievably gorgeous.
He is also one of the boys who can make people laugh the easiest! Because he does awesome accents.
If he were to be played in a movie, he would want Freddie from Skins to play him! Which is perfect, and makes me love him.
Zayn is currently dating Rebecca, another contestant from the X Factor.
At one point in his life Zayn was so hyperactive that his mom took him to the doctor.
Apparently Zayn was the most vain person in the X Factor house. He took the most time getting ready for everything.
He was also known as "The Human Echo" because One Direction on the X Factor had a bit of a formula for performances. Liam starts the song, Harry sings the rest of it, Zayn provides echoes, and Niall and Louis sing part of the chorus and look precious.
OH. AND. THIS. It's actually one of my favorite videos of a fan encounter ever. The girls somehow snuck around the back of a building and Louis is just like...chilling out sunbathing on the roof and Zayn comes and talks to them (and mentions that now that the girls have found out about the back alley he won't be able to have a cigarette) and it's all very chill and relaxed. (I also love the girls "Don't cry. Don't cry. She handled everything so much better than I would have been able to in her place.)
Okay. We're gonna talk for a second about how Audition!Liam is my favorite. Because he is. His hair. His boots. The way he's so charming and "Hi, Simon, haven't seen you in a long time." And the way the music builds up! And it gets all dramatic and zooms on Simon's face! And he looks like a petrified little puppy until he kind of shakes himself and starts singing and all of a sudden he's confident and sexy and oh my god so fucking hot. And then the song ends and he looks amazed and happy for about three seconds and then goes back to looking like a nervous little kitten. Puppy. I don't even know just adorable baby animals he makes me want to cry.
Anyway. So, as you can see from the audition, Liam tried out for the X Factor in 2008 and got through to the judges houses but then got sent home.
When he was going through the first auditions he said that High School Musical is basically the story of his life because back home he was on the basketball team and he kept trying to balance playing and singing out. HOW ADORABLE. Sorry.
Liam is the brainy one of the group. He reads. And stuff.
One of my favorite things about him is that whenever the boys get good feedback Zayn kind of looks like, "yeah, we're awesome," Louis is too busy being smiley, and Harry and Niall are always fist pumping and being thankful. Liam always looks absolutely shocked. Like he never expected it. And it just...it's so endearing?
Liam used to have a girlfriend! They were kind of all kinds of pretty. He also apparently hooked up with a backing dancer named Danielle? Fandom doesn't like her. The rumors started up again when he tweeted that he was "missing you" and then said goodnight to her. Fandom went crazy, etc you know this story.
Once fans found the boys playing in the park and sat and like...chilled out with them for half an hour or something. I don't understand how they managed to keep themselves from jumping Liam when he was all sprawled out like that. They obviously have more restraint than I ever will.
He tweets about foodalot? Fandom has a bit of an obsession about how NIALL NEVER SHARES FOOD. Idk. The only instance in which he will not eat is one when he has to use chopsticks.
Once, when Harry and Louis were doing a bromance twitcam, they decided to prank call Matt Cardle (the winner of the X Factor) except they had the phone on speaker and when it went to voicemail it did the whole "you have reached the voicemail box of number XXX-XXXX" and essentially released his personal cell number to thousands of fans. (The boys are no longer allowed to do twitcams.) But anyway, when they realized what happened Louis immediately went, "Can't we just blame Niall?" And now fandom likes to joke about how everything is Niall's fault, and if anything happens they just blame Niall.

The first thing you need to know about Harry Styles is that if you haven't already, you're about to fall in love with Harry Styles. He is possibly the most charming boy on the planet. It's the hair. And the eyes. And the smile. And the personality. But mostly the hair. And the fact that he is pretty much the prettiest person ever. Zayn is the most gorgeous, Niall is the most adorable, and Harry is just so freaking pretty it is distracting. All the time. So. Yes.
The second most important thing you need to know about Harry is that he likes to be naked.All the time. He sleeps naked,despite sharing a room with all four other boys (and the fact that Louis sleepwalks and sometimes ends up sleepwalking into the other boy's beds. There needs to be more fic about this. I demand it.) and he walked around the X Factor house in his underwear all the time.
Oh, fucking hell. This is like doing Zayn all over again. All of Harry's pictures are pretty. I don't actually have much more to say than that. I consciously forced myself to stop saving pictures of him because I was literally saving every other one for the pretty and I knew this was going to happen. Gah.
When Matt Cardle won X Factor Harry, on stage, in front of thousands of people and being broadcasted to millions, leaned over to Matt and whispered in his ear, "think of how much pussy you're gonna get." It has since been named "Pussygate," and is...a kind of accurate representation of the kind of person Harry is? XD Sorry. No, idk. Harry just gets all the girls.
