We're totally losing it over this J.K. Rowling shout out to Niall Horan.

This is how you know you've made it. Forget One Direction's five years of runaway success as the biggest boy band on the planet. When you land in one of the Harry Potter author's books, you've just taken it totally next level.

Earlier this week, a fan shared a pic of a page from J.K's book Career of Evil (written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith), where characters Detective Strike and Hazel have a chat about a girl who claimed she was dating a guy named Niall.

In the excerpt, Hazel says: "She said his name was Niall. Niall. Honestly."

The character goes on to explain who One Direction are: "They're a band that came third on The X Factor. She's obsessed - she was obsessed - and Niall was her favorite."

How effing cool is that, srsly?
