aka the stuff that is actually canon. Plus some others that are just cute?
- Rebecca Ferguson/Zayn
These two met on TXF (Rebecca came in second) and kind of danced around the fact that they were dating for a while but now it's public knowledge. Fans seem kind of split on whether they support these two or not. There's a six year age gap and Becks has two kids, so. People seem to find it kind of awkward? But from the
- Look! He's holding her bag! How cute! // Zayn has declared on Twitter that he loves her! // She has done likewise! // Lalala random picture of them walking. // Equally random (but pretty!) picture of them standing! // An alleged fan account. Putting it here because it's adorable.
- Leona Lewis/Liam
Lol Liam is just so adorable. He's amazingly dorky and fanboyish when it comes to Leona Lewis. This is also the story of how 1D fangirls are amazing.
- So once upon a time Liam was just a normal fanboy, flailing over Leona's cd in his car. (He actually had tons of tweets about her, prior to the fans stepping in.) // Until one day, he asked for Leona Lewis for Christmas. // Being the amazing fans that they are, his fans bombarded Leona with tweets telling her to add Liam, which she finally did. // (And was appropriately impressed with how lovely his fans are.) // Then came the infamous Louis waking up Liam to tell him about it thing, which will never stop being adorable. // And finally, they met. // Liam was adorable about it. // Harry says Liam "fangirl-d." // The best thing about this though, is that when asked to choose between Leona and his fans, Liam immediately picked his fans. Because he's perfect. And they are perfect. And idk I'm so in love with the world right now I have no idea why I think I've gone loony from looking at all those Lourry pics.
- Danielle Peazer/Liam
This is the actual canon Liam pairing. Fans...really don't seem to like her? She's a backup dancer (and a rather amazing one, if I do say so myself) and fans seem to be under the impression that she's "using Liam." There's also the part where Liam has turned out to be super protective of his personal life and relationships to a degree stronger than the other boys, so we have yet to see these two together or have them really acknowledge the relationship. Which I think is another part of what pisses the fans off. They'd rather Liam just come out and say, yes, I'm dating her, we're happy, please be happy for us rather than have them avoid the topic and make fans figure it all out through their few cryptic tweets.
- Personally I think we should be congratulating Liam. // She really is a good dancer. // Look how pretty she is! // ALSO, LOOK. LOOK AT THIS. SERIOUSLY, GOOD WORK, LIAM. I AM IMPRESSED. I CANNOT ARTICULATE HOW IMPRESSED I ACTUALLY AM THAT YOU GOT THIS GORGEOUS GIRL. // Anyway, fans found out about all of this technically when reports came out about someone on the set of TXF seeing them making out, but nobody believed that. But then one night Liam randomly tweeted "missing you," and Danielle tweeted "missing you more." And then fandom kind of exploded? Idk, I wasn't actually here for this. // Danielle is really adorably mentioned in Liam's Thanks To thing. This is the bit people who bash her need to pay attention to. She clearly makes him happy, shouldn't we be happy too? // She once retweeted "retweet if Liam is your boyfriend." Honestly I think on a list of good ways to tell your fans you're going out with someone this way would not make the list at all, but. Okay. // Liam was adorably upset that he couldn't be with her for her birthday. He had a sad tweet about how he wished he could have a clone for times like these, and then this. :( Sad Liam makes me sad.
- Chad Michael Murray/Louis
FAVORITE CRACK SHIP EVAAAAR. Also, yet another story of how these boys have the best fans ever.
Once Upon a Time One Direction was in LA, so Louis figured he should watch some American television. Apparently, the show of choice was One Tree Hill. // He then sent the fans out to figure out if any of the cast have Twitter. // And it was promptly reported back that yes, Chad Michael Murray does. // He flailed over my favorite characters on the show and then admitted that Lucas (played by CMM) was his favorite. // Upon realizing that Louis would fangirl if Chad tweeted him the fans jumped into action! // Which of course made Lou declare that his fans are the best in the world. // Upon realizing how much Louis' fans love him, Chad sent Louis a DM. I don't know what that means, but. Awesome. // The fans were quite proud of themselves. Well deserved self back patting was all around. // Louis flailed to his mom.
And then asked her to stop calling him Boo, because it was embarrassing XD// AND THEN LOUIS HAD DRINKS WITH CHAD AND HIS GIRLFRIEND. I actually love imagining this in my head. First of all, Louis isn't old enough to drink in the U.S., so I wonder what he was drinking? Second of all, I can totally imagine Louis going "so how fit is Sophia Bush?" without realizing that her and Chad were married and divorced and Kenzie would just be sitting there awkwardly as Louis went on about how hot Sophia is. FUN TIMES IN MY HEAD. // Anyway, Chad then tweeted about what a bright future Lou has. Everyone was happy. // AND THEN TWO DAYS LATER CHAD HAD LOUIS OVER FOR A BBQ. AND LOUIS SAID HE MIGHT SEE CHAD BEFORE THEY LEAVE. // AND THEN CHAD TWEETED A PICTURE OF THEM TOGETHER AND THANKED THE FANS FOR INTRODUCING THEM. I CANNOT. I JUST CAN'T.
...yeah, those are Louis and Harry's mom's twitters. WHAT OF IT. This is less of a shippy thing and more of an oh my god they're so adorable type thing. They're both really young mothers (seriously, I don't know how old Louis' mom is but she's got the oldest son in the band and she's younger than the band baby's mom.) and I think the fact that they're both so much younger than all the other boy's parents kind of bonded them? They also are really interactive with the fans on twitter, and are - from what I can tell - genuinely really sweet people. (...they're both also really hot.)
When they get together they're like a pair of giggling teenagers! // This one time Jay had a sad tweet about how her and Louis used to drink tea together. So Anne promised they could drink tea together. And cake! And then they were adorable. // Much like the boys, they're grateful for Simon for leading them to each other! // I actually really want to know how old they are. I want to look like them when I've got a nineteen year old son. // THEY ARE SO CUTE. // Jay calls Anne "button." Anne calls Jay "darling." They are seriously the grown up female version of Louis and Harry.
Without the sex that their sons are obviously having.// Ahahaha this one time Harry's sister Gemma tweeted about how someone should set her up with Sam from Glee. Jay and Anne then decided to create a dating agency to find a guy good enough for Gemma. Fans started suggesting possible candidates. Which set off a whole new round of adorable. Seriously. Seriously. I love them. // They really love their boys. // And are really sweet to the fans. // I just find it super cute how much they obviously make each other laugh. // Idk this is here because Harry is wearing his "Harry ♥ Louis" shirt. // Looking all snazzy with Gemma and Zayn! // I REALLY FEEL LIKE WE'RE LOOKING INTO LOUIS AND HARRY'S FUTURE. // Random picture of Anne with her son and son-in-law. // Jay admitting that - much like Harry and Louis love all the 1D boys but love each other best - her and Anne love all the 1D moms but love each other best. // Aw, they have little family dinners together! // Okay, they are actually too pretty to be fair. // LOOK HOW PRETTY THEY ARE! I kind of want to be them.// And we end with them having drinks together!
- Hannah Walker/Louis
I...actually ship these two almost as much as I ship Harry and Louis. Yeah, I don't know. The thing about Hannah is that she is kind of really amazing with the fans. She is incredibly patient with the bitchy fans and she's playful and sweet to all the sane ones and fandom just. Loves her. As do I. Which, okay, yes, is kind of weird, but the people who are uncomfortable with the concept of people loving Hannah because she's "just a normal girl" aren't taking into account the fact that One Direction hasn't exactly released any records yet, so at the moment most of us aren't really fans of their music, we're fans of the boys and how brilliant they are. So. Idk. What am I saying. Also part of the reason fandom loves Hannah is because 1) she tolerates everyone trying to steal her man and 2) he was her man prior to the show, so we know she isn't using him for his fame or whatever. Also, they are downright adorable together. As evidenced (a lot) below.
They really are quite pretty together. // And adorable! // This is Hannah clipping red extensions into Louis' hair/ // A purse that Lou bought her! // THIS IS SO CUTE! MANHANDLING! ON THE COUCH! HANDS! // And, because part of being the best girlfriend ever involves getting along with the other boys, have some Harry and Hannah. Is it okay that I love that her hand is under his sweater? // lol I will never be amused with the boys not washing off the makeup after they got off stage. // Okay, this. This is Louis with Hannah's little sister Emily. I love the domesticity of it. // This is just here because Hannah with little children is precious. // ...it's not fair that all of Louis' girl friends are so pretty. // Lol Hannah has all the name tags from Louis' old jobs. // AW. Hannah's planner from when her and Lou started going out. // So cute and cuddly! // And...crazy? // But really, just so so precious. Their little matching ties! // One of the cutest sequences of coupley pictures ever. I love what a dork Hannah is.
I will not talk about how he kisses her with his eyes open. I will not talk about it.They're just so precious! LOOK HOW RIDICULOUS THEY ARE! // And how pretty, hot damn. // Hannah's Valentines Day delivery! // Seriously, she is so good about all the crazy rumors and crazy fans. // I wanna talk for a second about how gorgeous Hannah is. Look how gorgeous she is. // Happy little kiss! // Lou and Hannah with her family! // Another bag that Louis got her. (So jealous ngl) // The two of them on her 18th birthday. // And with her little cousin! Could they get more adorable? The little girl is on Hannah's lap, Hannah is on Louis' lap, I just. // Noooo idea what's going on here. Still cute. // Cannot get over how pretty they are. // Roses from Louis! // In school they were in a production of Greece together! (Sidenote, Louis and two of his friends got suspended for three days for flashing the audience during a performance.) // Hannah with Louis' twin sisters! // Pretty professional looking picture! // Lol Louis...lying on top of Hannah? // The bracelet Lou got Hannah. She's slowly been filling it with charms. // Oh my god my sister and I used to do this all the time. She didn't realize I was going to do it once and we both ended up landing on our backsides. Good times. // lol Hannah hates this picture. Although that shirt Louis is wearing is the first thing she ever bought him. // OH MY GOD THIS PICTURE. THE COMMENTS. 34 PEOPLE. I CAN'T. I will not talk about how his eyes are open.// Louis generally doesn't talk about Hannah a lot on Twitter, but when he does he's just so sweet. // Basically, when they talk about Grease, they're really talking about the point in their lives where they were first falling in love. // I love the way he has his legs hooked around her. // The bands around her arm are from all the X-Factor shows she went to. // Okay, kind of random, but Hannah with Harry's sis Gemma. // Hannah admitting that Louis is her best friend :) // Haha I admit the reason I follow Hannah on Twitter is for when she tweets random things like this with no explanation. // The two of them having a movie night(?) with Louis' little sisters. // Playing Twister! // LOOK, LOOK SHE CORRECTS HIS GRAMMAR. I LOVE HER. // But, I mean, how could you not? Look how cute she is! // They honestly have one of the cutest relationships I've ever seen. He's on her shoulders. Could they be more precious? // Their easter eggs have their names on them! // ALRIGHT. This is why Jay and Hannah are the best support Louis could ever have. Look how they deal with the fans. They aren't even. They just could not get more perfect. // Random picture of Hannah being weird - because she's wearing Louis' jacket. // She calls him sunshine. There could not be a more appropriate nickname for Louis. // Don't remember if I put this one up already. Oh well, it's worth seeing again anyway. // AH. HANNAH RETWEETED A "RETWEET IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE HANNAH AND LOUIS GET MARRIED." WHAT. YES, PLEASE. // Perhaps the best example of how awesome Hannah is. HOW IS SHE SO SWEET. // Hannah and her brother Georgie! Nothing to do with Louis, they're just cute. // I love how she calls him "our Lou." It's oddly appropriate, considering she's sharing him with the world. // He's a diamond. // OOOOOH OKAY THIS. This picture was posted on Facebook by Louis' mom. Here are the comments. // I feel like their relationship works so well because she isn't afraid to put him in his place. Nobody else - not even the other boys - seem to do it to the degree that she does. // So so painfully cute. Whenever Lou texts Hannah she drops everything and ignores everyone to text him back. // Can't remember if I put this up either. I get all the sequence of adorable pics confused. // Hannah's dreams about 1D are always the best. // I love Louis' happy little smile. // LOOK AT HOW PRECIOUS THEY ARE. // Sometimes Hannah dreams Mpreg. // I love so so so much that she doesn't let him get away with misspelling things. // Hannah explaining to someone why she has so many followers. // THIS HERE IS MY FAVORITE FACEBOOK CONVERSATION. THEY. ARE. SO. CUTE. // Yeah, Hannah is kind of hot. // Hannah telling fans how grateful she is that they're supportive of her. She's probably the only girlfriend fans will ever be supportive of, so. Good for her. // Again with her dealing with rumors. (Also my favorite rumor. Her and Niall look kind of amazing together, what don't judge me.) // LOL THEIR FACEBOOK CONVERSATIONS. REALLY. First of all, Louis, jealousy is an adorable color on you. Hannah, how does it feel to win at life? // I really can't deal with how cute she is. I know I've used that word too often. Sorry. // Louis, declaring his love. // I love his relationship with her little sister, too. // Harry flirting with Hannah? I don't really understand what's going on here. // Hannah kissing the bear Louis sent her. And looking rather gorgeous, if I may add. // Another shoulder pic! My god, Louis' smile. // Again, nothing to do with Louis. But still. Hannah asks the important questions in life. // Lol Louis. Hannah insulting his cooking. // Always feel kind of invasive looking at Facebook conversations, but. They really couldn't be more perfect. // Hannah Walker has a lovely boyfriend. // LOLOL Recently Hannah got this app thing that lets you see what your future child will look like. Her and Louis got AMAZING RESULTS. // Wooooo Hannah has dreams about Liam sleeping over~ // This is just. Amazing. Hannah's body clock has taught her to wake up at 4am when Louis is going to sleep. I don't even have words for them. // I mentioned how hot Hannah is, right? // Aw, apparently Louis is a computer geek who can come to the rescue and fix her technical problems. // It was actually a Spiderman mask. // THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS. Okay, so remember when I said that Louis isn't the most affectionate on Twitter? Apparently that's because he saves it all for Facebook. I love how all his declarations of love and missing her are spread throughout the month. It's just. Perfect perfection. // Aw, be more adorable, I dare you. // Ah, here are all the wrist things from Hannah's trips to the X-Factor. Most supportive girlfriend ever? // Heee! Them in Grease! // And finally, a random picture from on Louis' shoulders! // In conclusion, they are perfect. And I would rather Louis marry Hannah than marry me. He could marry Harry, though, if he likes.
