Anonymous said: why is liam ur fave
SHORT ANSWER: IDK, HE JUST IS. I JUST LOVE HIM SO MUCH.
MEDIUM ANSWER: LET’S GO BACK IN TIME. It’s October 2012. I’m in a pretty dire situation, ficwise, because all the people I usually rely on for recs are just TEEN WOLF as far as the eye can see. I know for a fact that there is quality 1D fic out there by an author I love if I am willing to cross that line. I FIGHT IT FOR A LONG TIME, ANON, BUT THERE IS SO MUCH BAD STEREK AND I JUST WANT AN AU THAT ISN’T GOING TO DISAPPOINT ME. And so I read Better With You, and it’s every bit as good as I was expecting, and Liam’s the POV character. Even though at this point I know so little about 1D that I can’t even identify Liam in a photo and I’m under the impression that Liam/Louis is the dominant fandom pairing [this was a disappointment when I realized there wasn’t as much fic for them as I was expecting, but by now I’ve seen enough of 1D tinhats to be relieved], he’s still effectively my entry point into this whole neverending emotional disaster, so the boring answer is that I SAW HIM FIRST and I imprinted on him like a baby duck and/or a Twilight werewolf. [It’s definitely a lot closer to whatever fucked up thing is happening to Twilight werewolves than it is to baby ducks, I’m gonna be honest.] I resisted for a long time, but there was no stopping it.
LONG AND COMPLETELY UNHINGED ANSWER: I REALLY JUST LOVE THE SHIT OUT OF LIAM PAYNE, and I will never be able to articulate any kind of WHY because it’s not like any of this is rational.
