Essay About One Direction

On By In 1

I know, I know, I’m like ten years late to this show. But come on its the best show there is, bring Greek back 2018. The whole show centers around the life of college students and as we college students we can relate to almost everything that happens in the show. The girl drama, the boy drama, the will they won’t they and the fun times that are had. Throughout the show there are different couple pairings that involve all the main characters. Some are good and some are not so good, so here they are ranked by yours truly.

10. Rebecca and Cappie

Sorry guys, I know there were some that liked them. But Cappie dating the girl who hated Casey just is too much for me. Plus, they didn’t match really, the rich girl and the hippie guy. Come on this was pretty bad.

9. Evan and Frannie

This was just a way for Evan to get back at Casey and for Frannie to get that life that she always wanted with the rich boy. This obviously was doomed from the start since it was practically a transaction for the both of them. And Even cheated on someone…again.

8. Ashleigh and Simone The Professor

This was a short lived and somewhat awkward situation. Ashleigh started dating Casey’s law professor, who has this thing with paying for everything. At first it seemed like the perfect relationship for Ashleigh but then he started trying to control where she went and it was see you later professor.

7. Casey and Evan

I know they were the IT couple and just perfect for each other, but he was a jerk to her. And yes, after he cheated she did stay with him just for the benefits. But I mean he stole her from Cappie and continued to try to keep them apart. They were both just wrong for each other.

6. Ashleigh and Fisher

They were the secret romance that came into the light and then it went downhill from there. They seemed perfect for one another, but then he cheated again and again and again. But they are married in real life, so that is kind of perfect.

5. Calvin and Heath

We saw Calvin work through all the different types of college relationships, but he always came back to Heath. They met during the very first episode and made it through break ups and everything. So they deserved a spot on this list.

4. Casey and Max

Honestly Max was the sweetest thing ever. He was the hot dork that everyone wanted to love and he even gave up Cal tech for Casey! But sadly, their relationship couldn’t last when Casey finally realized that she was still in love with Cappie. Leaving Max heartbroken and off to England.

3. Dale and the land lady

I know you’re thinking why is so low, but it’s because good ole dale needs to be on here and this was his major relationship. This was the one that changed his world and made a man as one would say. So as far as relationships go, this one was big.

2. Rebecca and Evan

They both deserved one another. Yes, as the seasons went on Rebecca became more and more likeable and Evan not so much. But they are too alike to not be together, both came from the same background and they just got one another. Yeah Evan messed it up and hurt her, but they were great when they were together

1.Cappie and Casey

I mean come on guys, this was a given. Most of the show was centered around them and their on and off relationship. They were each other’s first love and they never stopped loving one another. They were so perfect for one another and finally realized it. They even drove off into the sunset together.

So, there were a lot more relationships on the show from the background ones, to the ones with people whose names no one remembers. But these are the top ones. So, here’s to me being ten years to the GREEK party and finally seeing why it was such a hit in the first place. Bring Greek back 2018!

Zayn Malik left One Direction eight months ago, but at this point, his departure feels like it happened an eternity ago. That illusion of vastness reflects 1D's career arch as a whole: Time moves quickly because so much is packed into each calendar year. They've been a band for five years now, but it's nearly impossible for fans of the band to think of a time they didn't exist. It goes without saying: 1D are the kind of group it's hard to be a casual fan of. You're either all in, or you don't touch the stuff.

That intensity breeds community. Girls and boys (in this case, girls) come together for their love of something in a way that feels democratic. They love the band not just for their songs, but as a movement on the whole.

And in conjunction with overall support, everyone has a favorite member. The sweet, vulnerable Niall Horan always seemed to be America's champion: He's the most nonthreatening, one of the youngest and in many ways, the realest. He plays guitar, and the U.S. loves a sensitive rock star. Harry Styles and Zayn Malik always battled it out for frontman/heartthrob status--the former winning out, the later morphing into a comfortable, brooding personality. And Liam Payne was the big brother, the controlling, masculine force within the group. 

That brings us to Louis Tomlinson.

The guy has gone through a series of transformations, but they've all been slight. In the beginning, he was a sweet lad with a higher voice than the rest. His positioning was always viewed in relation to Harry, and thus, "Larry" was born. Within Directioner fandom, it's the belief that there is some sort of real, intimate, emotional and sexual relationship between Louis and Harry, though neither has spoken about homosexuality in any real way. 

It was weird: Here, Louis was beloved because of some (possibly) fictionalized reality created by fans. There's not a lot of space to grow when your real being is so intertwined with an unreal narrative. And yet, Louis managed to become something of a breakout star in One Direction camp this year. "No Control" is to blame.

When Four was released last year, the rock track "Steal My Girl" became the lead single, and "Night Changes" was the sensitive ballad that followed. It was a more mature album as a whole, one which Louis mostly co-penned and which he clearly dominates. It showed the world that he was more than half of Larry, but a real, massively important part of the world's biggest pop group. 

Even with the two tracks out there, it quickly became obvious that the best song on the album was "No Control." So obvious, in fact, that fans launched a viral campaign to make it the next single from the record. It didn't happen, but radio stations listened: The song was inescapable. 

Not only was it partially a Tomlinson creation, it was a Louis song: He sings the hook, the chorus is his, he makes "No Control." It made everyone pay attention: New Directioners entered the fandom as Louis girls, and old diehards switched their focus to the guy.

Four was only the beginning of the Year of Louis Tomlinson. When the world found out that he was going to be a dad, there was an outpouring of surprise, and well-wishes. It was strange: The prospect of impregnating a woman months after breaking up with a longtime girlfriend somehow humanized Tomlinson. Not only was he the voice of the best song in 1D's repertoire in quite some time, he became the one making headlines--and with no more Zayn, the bad boy. And people loved it.

This 2015 version of Louis is an edgy one. He's more complicated than the boy band schema would allow, and doesn't fit a specific role in it. He's become a focal point for media, a favorite among fans, a dynamic person of many levels. While "No Control" might be the force behind it, the song operates as the wake-up call we all needed. Louis Tomlinson is here, he's real, and he's great.
