In another time, One Direction are 16, 17, and 18 years old forever. They are wide-eyed, just-the-right-amount-cautious, and too happy. They get their hearts broken, sure, they get hurt, they get booed, people give them a hard time, people laugh at them, but they don't advance to the next years where things get more serious and worse, where they get more hurt. Here, frozen, they are safe. It's not conducive for growing up, no, they will not develop thick skins and bigger hearts, no. But here, they are babies always, guffaws still real, unsullied, unbroken.
