In fact, out of the 100 most recent fanworks in the Nick/Harry tag at the time of writing, fewer than 30 focus on this pairing as endgame.Some fans have questioned the underlying message and effect of the plot device, which fits within a wider fandom trend of using and/or passing up a canon queer character in order for two seemingly straight characters to end up together (see for example the debates around promoting Sterek over representation of canon queer character Danny Mahealani in Teen Wolf fandom).
Union J have their own manager anyway,some guy named Blair so let's not make it a cowell/syco thing like on tumblr.
He is best known as the current host of BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show (starting September 24, 2012) and close friend to One Direction's Harry Styles. Nick's fandom presence mostly centers around his links to 1D.
In fanworks he is most often shipped with 1D band members: The widespread temporary or unrequited Nick/Harry fic trope in Larry Stylinson fic seems to suggest there might be more endgame Tomlinshaw than endgame Gryles, but it does not skew the results that much: even when Harry/Louis is filtered out of the results on AO3, there are 200 more Nick/Harry fics than Nick/Louis.
Earlier Nick/Harry fics sometimes built on Nick’s perpetual singleness and cast Nick as flighty, insecure, or not ready for commitment, As a result of this sometimes antagonistic relationship with the wider 1D fandom, Nick Grimshaw is sometimes demonized in fanworks, especially of the badfic type. He might be depicted as an abuser This trope is widely condemned as a sad repetition of the homophobic "gay men as predators" stereotype.
These tropes are not as obviously problematic as the previous one, and can appear in excellent stories.
