I seem to be doing an awful (wonderful) lot of pimping Harry Styles and Nick Grimshaw over on twitter lately, and instead of searching out links over and over (for I am not a person who succeeds at pinboarding and such), I decided I should just make a post and then I can send people here.


I am in the Harry Styles/Nick Grimshaw corner of this fandom, so this post will be mostly all about that. If you would like a primer for the whole of One Direction, [personal profile] fiarra has an awesome one here.

This is Nick Grimshaw (L) and Harry Styles (R). They make each other very happy.


They also make people on Tumblr happy, and those people have been known to make pimping posts and primers:
Nick and Harry spend a lot of time together, or here, have some OTP

Look how fucking happy Grimmy makes Harry: a masterpost

Harry/Grimmy: a post (don't let this post fool you. It is not gryles OR stymshaw. it is Harry/Nick. /rant about namesmushes)

We are a secret can't be exposed

there are actually more, but I think that probably covers it for now :)

Harry is a singer in a boyband you may have heard of, called One Direction. He's prone to being stupidly sexy, and also charming.







he also makes some questionable tattoo choices, but seems to REALLY ENJOY getting them



Nick Grimshaw is a DJ and TV presenter, and right now he's doing the Radio 1 Breakfast Show. Don't live in England? Can't stay up late enough to stream the show live in whatever timezone you live in? That's okay! The BBC very kindly lets you listen to the show any time you like for up to seven days after it airs right here.

he is a goofball


and a fashion icon



no, seriously, he keeps getting invited to 'best dressed' events

and a troll with friends who troll him right back with anatomically correct penis cakes


He's also an out gay man who flirts with dudes shamelessly, jokes about being a T.O.P, and does things like kisses James Cordon on national TV.

because he does these things in England, he does not become the center of a media furore, but I still admire the fuck out of him.

nicholaspetergrimshaw on tumblr has made an amazing Nick Grimshaw masterpost for your perusal. There are lots of great videos of him interviewing people and being on Buzzcocks and stuff, and also pictures of him with his famous and somewhat-famous friends.

This is quite a good interview in the Guardian done with him as he took over the breakfast show.


As for fic:

[archiveofourown.org profile] sunsetmog recently posted If This is Love, which is nearly 86k, and epic, and is the reason at least some of my twitter peeps ended up here. It's amazing for sure.

Also in the epic category, though clocking in at quite a bit less than half the length (31k words) is The Miseducation of Harry Styles by [livejournal.com profile] junkshop_disco.

Lots of authors are writing awesome, if slightly (or significantly) shorter fic too:
[archiveofourown.org profile] LittleMousling
[archiveofourown.org profile] addictedkitten
[archiveofourown.org profile] estrella30
[archiveofourown.org profile] loafers
[archiveofourown.org profile] disarm_d
[archiveofourown.org profile] fiarra
[archiveofourown.org profile] milliejupiter
[archiveofourown.org profile] rivers_bend (self-pimping, la la la)

There are more too, I am sure, but that is what the first several pages of my AO3 history threw at me. If you're into angst fic, I am not your girl for recs :D

and to finish, a delightful fanvid

"gryles" is like a sound effect for someone being punched that they'd use in a comic book. D:

...entirely unrelatedly, the Nick masterpost is a page not found.

(...no, really, unrelated, no rabbit holes.)

YOU ARE A PIMP EXTRAORDINAIRE, LOVE.

...dammit, I need a Nick icon.
 
posted by [identity profile] rivers-bend.livejournal.com at 05:43am on 11/03/2013
I TRY.

and I have to admit, when pimping is as gratifying as it is to you, that makes it ALL THE BETTER.

I have been making nick icons. but I am not loving how any of them are coming out. I am so out of icon practice!

Aw, I had no idea Nick was out and gay, that's awesome! And what a delightful fanvid. Thanks for sharing this :D
 
posted by [identity profile] rivers-bend.livejournal.com at 05:45am on 11/03/2013
he is, and it's definitely awesome. It gives me fuzzy feelings :D his social media producer is also an out queer woman. \o/

and you are most welcome! It was a real blast <33

Psst, the Nick masterpost is right here (http://nicholaspetergrimshaw.tumblr.com/post/28480865443/so-maybe-i-made-a-nick-grimshaw-master-post) - when people change URLs on Tumblr you can just put their new one into the link and the post you're looking for will pop up. :)
 
posted by [identity profile] rivers-bend.livejournal.com at 02:41am on 05/04/2013
ooh, thank you! I didn't know that was a change in URL situation, nor that you could do that. I am a minimalist tumblr user :)
