“But how can you be so sure”
What I find so interesting about this fandom is the diversity of opinions regarding Larry. You’ve got those that believe in it 100%, those that believe its a 100% fictional relationship created in our minds, those that flip-flop back and forth every day, and a range of others.
A common question I consistently see coming up on my dash is “what makes you believe” or “how can you be 100% sure”, as if some blogs on here have some magical answer they’re going to give you that will make all your doubts disappear. I’m sorry, they wont. Don’t get me wrong, this fandom has an incredible amount of knowledge but no one knows your doubts but you, thus, no one knows how much ‘convincing’ you require.
The reason I say this is because these “how can you be so sure” questions are the same things people use to pick larrie’s theories apart. For example, maybe I joined the fandom because I watched a million fandom evidence videos and it convinced me 100% and I couldn’t see any other explanation for it. Well, then when someone asks me ‘what makes me so sure’ then obviously I’m going to be thinking of what convinced me to help convince you. However, you might think those videos are a load of BS. Another example, maybe I joined the fandom after seeing Yahoo UK’s larry articles and thought the tattoos were the least platonic thing on the planet and that gave me my ‘ah ha’ moment. Again, this is going to be my first reference point when someone asks me why I’m so sure whereas you might think the tattoos aren’t a big selling point.
If you’re new to the fandom or only kind of believe in Larry, just remember you’re on your own journey. It took me several months for everything to click whereas it took others only a certain moment between H/L or a few days of research. If you have doubts about something then I encourage you to address those doubts with your own research first, then ask for opinions. I do 100% support asking other blogs for opinions, but I know I’m not only speaking for myself when I say that blogs are less inclined to answer an ask when the person is making an unsound argument/opinion.
Also, if you want, you can read under the cut about other bloggers “ah ha larry moment’ and how long it took. As you can see, the responses vary:
