If you could switch places with one of the other members and experience being in One Direction as them for a day, who would you like to switch places with?
YOU GUYS. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND. BECAUSE LIKE. Okay, this is a staple question for bands, who in your band would you be, etc. etc. etc., and usually people choose the person that it would be the most fun to be for whatever reason, the most chill, the one that everyone loves, WHATEVER.
And see, this kills me for TWO DIFFERENT REASONS, the first being that it doesn’t even OCCUR to Liam to be like ‘oh, whose life is better than mine is or gets more attention than I do’ or any of that bullshit, because Liam? LIAM IS LIVING HIS GODDAMN DREAM AND HE NEVER FORGETS THAT FOR A FUCKING SECOND. HE WOULDN’T TRADE PLACES WITH ANYONE FOR A SELFISH REASON, NOPE. DOESN’T EVEN CROSS HIS MIND. HE IS TOO BUSY BEING GRATEFUL FOR LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE THING HE HAS.
Because Liam LITERALLY AND GENUINELY AND SINCERELY INTERPRETS THIS QUESTION as basically “who could I HELP by being him for a day?” and completely misses the point and turns it into HOW CAN I MAKE THIS INTO A GOOD DEED. WHOSE LIFE COULD I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN. WHOSE BURDEN COULD HE HELP SHOULDER EVEN MORE DIRECTLY THAN HE ALREADY DOES IN EVERYTHING HE DOES WITH THIS BAND, DEFLECTING QUESTIONS FOR HARRY, BEING A TOTAL FUCKING WEIRDO WITH LOUIS OFF ON THE SIDE, PULLING FOCUS FROM ANYTHING UNCOMFORTABLE BY TELLING STORIES ABOUT HIS PENIS. BUT NOPE THAT WASN’T ENOUGH.
"I’VE ALWAYS LIKED THE IDEA OF SAVING LIVES." LIAM IS BASICALLY GERARD WAY CIRCA 2005 WITH HOW MUCH HE WANTS TO SAVE PEOPLE. AND HE’S GOING TO START WITH HIS BAND. OKAY COOL GREAT THIS IS FINE I DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ANY OF THIS AT ALL, NOPE.
AND THEN HARRY IS ALL BABY HOW ARE YOU THE GREATEST, OBVIOUSLY I HAVE TO CHOOSE YOU TO SWAP INTO BECAUSE YOU HAVE JUST SHOWN THE ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD WHY YOU’RE THE GLORIOUS POOH BEAR THAT YOU ARE, AND LIAM. LIAM’S FACE. THE COMPLETE AND UTTER JOY THERE. THE TOTAL SHOCK THAT HARRY WOULD CHOOSE HIM. THAT HARRY STYLES ACTUALLY THINKS IT WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO BE LIAM PAYNE. WHAT A GIFT.
god just end me
lilo then and now
