This part of my One Direction Weed Scandal Aftermath series will discuss Niall Horan's role. His role could be defined as: Living Ray of Sunshine.

One thing that you should know about the four days prior to the scandal: All four of those days were all about Niall and how wonderful he is. May 23-25 the band played at Croke Park in Dublin Ireland as part of their ongoing tour. Croke is also the place where Niall made his first audition for X-Factor back in 2010, so it was very much his homecoming. And it was a three day celebration for Niall in his own country. Those three concerts may as well have been Niall-palooza.

Which brings us to May 26, the day before the scandal hit. One of the saddest parts of the weed scandal is that it broke the very day after Niall's marvelous charity football match. It was a very impressive event which Niall had organized along with Piers Morgan, and which made 300,000 pounds for an Irish children's charity. For the 24 hours before the scandal hit, Niall was the toast not just of Ireland, but of London too.

There was a ton of wonderful photos and pictures that came out of this event. Niall, could not play because of a recent knee surgery, but he managed the team, and Harry, Liam and Louis all played in the game. Harry even scored a goal! (Zayn was the only non-participating member of 1D. He was attending his fiancé's concert elsewhere...)

Just look at these wonderful pictures. These are the images and stories that the unsuspecting 1D world was wallowing in on the fateful morning of May 27:

One odd thing though. For some reason, Louis, who is a noted football aficionado, (and I'll be getting to that in a few days...) did not stay to the end of the match. All things considered, that now sticks out like a sore thumb. So, at the end of the match, Niall, accompanied by Harry and Liam, made a victory march around the stadium. They waved, smiled and thanked the fans. It was kinda glorious. It didn't matter at all that they actually lost the game.


 <--- Interesting. The day before Narriam was Narriam. Narriam was Narriam.

Since the scandal hit, Niall has been a steady, and calm presence. There aren't any articles focusing particularly on his perspective, but some note that he's upset that the band might break up. Other than that, he's been featured in lots of pictures either by or with Harry or Liam, and otherwise closely associated with one or both of them.


Niall Irish Princess

 <--- Interesting this last. The girl next to Niall is Harry's sister Gemma. This has many fangirl hearts atwitter. It is said that Harry is trying to fix them up.

So, I guess my Niall discussion wasn't as brief as I thought. And now I'm feeling all emotional about Niall's wonderfulness. But next, we're going to hit rougher waters. We'll finally arrive at the heart of the matter, which is of course what to do about Zouis. First, I'm going to discuss the Rehabilitation of Zayn Malik, and then I'll tackle what's up with Louis Tomlinson.
