... jesuses

anonymous asked:

Hello Gabi I've gotten my mum hooked on One Direction. I've told her all about Harry and Louis. She's got an open mind, she is sure that "babygate" is not true, because I've told her all about missing bumps etc.. but she also is not sold about HL's relationship either, she thinks it sounds too fairy-taley and that their team is making them play both sides, to please everyone and maximize sales. How I can convince her? maybe you have a tag with irrefutable Larry proofs? (no receipts) thank you!

Hi love! This will be long, like essay-long. I’ll divide it into 3 parts:

1) Harry and Louis’ friendship: The HL part can be only understood if she understands how much damage has been done with their images, and how in normal circumstances NO ONE would do that unless they want to punish them. And why these 2? I mean, why subsequently these 2 all the time? Because what did they do? They were 16 and 18 only, 

  • then think about WHEN the changes started to happen (clue: when they were about to break the American market) and 
  • then WHAT happened (iron closet, no interaction, only ONE (1) 1 on 1 interview, separate group interviews, 
  • then got bearded up sometimes even multiple times. (These relationships were always used for promo) 
  • but then just take a look at how fond they become when they look at each other, how they obviously don’t hate each other, so why is their team not showing that? That hey look they were not okay after the gay rumors started but here they are? And they are friends. LOOK. But no, they just didn’t do that. They kept them separate. 
  • Look at their body language as it closes off when something slips, how everyone looks on the side that shit this is gonna be something we have to pay for, or how openly they all got SCARED SHITLESS that they fucked something up. Seriously, if your mom doesn’t see it on HL, then okay (even though it’s clear), but look at the OTHER THREE boys. Why are they scared shitless when H or L says things like WHEN WE’RE HOME or when Louis said YOU TRIED BABY and so many other things. This is when your mom has to do her thing and look up things because it’s impossible to put it all in one post. 
  • Look at  WHAT they actually do/say/did, their BODY LANGUAGE, how they SHADED BEARDS and how they refused to hold hands, kept distance, kept space for 3 Jesuses between them etc while they both are very tactile people but never as tactile as with each other. The narrative that was PUBLIC for god’s sake that GAY RUMORS DESTROYED their friendship, they were BEST FRIENDS, they LIVED TOGETHER, even if Louis was the messiest, and suddenly it turns all shit and it’s all out for the fucking PUBLIC that they HATE EACH OTHER?? Why is this even out? Don’t forget the shit that’s written about Louis. If you ever read anything about PR teams is that they HIDE all the shit, they pay every single staff member to keep their mouth shut, they give extra concert tickets etc, sign NDA’s with them. Like..when they did the Steal My Girl video they signed an NDA with every single DANCER!!! And they were just dancers??! Now imagine a gay couple, an in-band couple. 
  • LARRY NARRATIVE VS REALITY

First of all, in what world intra-band animosity is ADVERTISED by their team instead of HIDDEN under seven locks. While 1D was a thing the Zayn-Harry animosity was always covered up. Now pretty much all of the members talk about it openly, and your mom can ask why. 

“When something was going wrong, I’d get a phone call. If there was an APOLOGY needed, it was me. I was the spokesperson for the band, as it were, with the press and the label” (LIAM PAYNE 2017).

“The same way that Harry’s getting to war belly button trousers - he didn’t do that in One Direction because there wasn’t the sense of FREEDOM to do so.” Liam Payne 2017

They were told what to say, what to do, what to WEAR even. Do you think a gay relationship is allowed and advertised?

  • Look at the presence of the PAPS when they’re bearding.
  • and how this INDUSTRY works, jesus just how many stories we already had about people forced to hide their sexuality for the sake of sales and for keeping the crunchy dollars from the parents of their young fans
  • how they SHADED their teams for years, how Louis refused to shake Griffith’s hand, how they hated their teams, 
  • how it’s all out there in every single twitch of their eye that they HATE their teams, and HATE what their teams did to them. 
  • Why is that? What could they do to them? 
  • Look how UNCOMFORTABLE they look next to Simon while surprise surprise the narrative is that they LOOOOOOVE Uncle Simon and they’re sooo grateful he put them together as a band. 

You can ask yourself why.

Why is it a love story when it comes to Simon who’s their boss but it’s a fucking train wreck when it comes to HL’s images. 

It’s a HUGE PUZZLE to put together and it’s not even about being open minded, because one gif or just knowing they have at least SIX known complementary tattoos is ENOUGH to understand it.

Your mom maybe rolls her eyes by now, that yeah yeah maybe, but it’s 2017 and they aren’t out, 1D is over etc etc. She thinks it’s too fariy-taily? Has she seen the lyrics written by these two? The constant presence of running, of being locked, of closed doors and the recurring theme of dark-and light and the feeling that they CAN’T LOVE who they want because they keep getting obstacles on their way. Why does this line exist in SOTT: Why are we always fucking running from the bullets.

What bullets??? WHY?? They’re rich as fuck, they have access to anything and everything. Why is Louis talking about HEADLINES THAT I CAN’T STAND. Why is no one’s interest to PROTECT them? To make SHIT disappear and swept under the rug instead of PUT OUT THERE IN PUBLIC? Read this ask by @lawyerlarrie. It’s a fundamental ask because i agree with it. https://tellmethisisnotlove.tumblr.com/post/141609282114/can-you-share-your-thoughts-pleaseWhy is everything so fucking SHADY all the time?

This ask cannot and won’t cover the seven year long image- destruction they have been doing for Harry and Louis.

Then analyse their images one by one. The rest is under a read more:

David & Clementine supporting Javi while Jesus is jesusing

i had a dream that someone made a callout post for one of the flute jesuses but no one could figure out who had done what because secretly none of us knew the difference between any of them and anyway bc of that dream i think i understand the true essence of tumblr

I AM OOOOHHHDIIINNN

(Just watched the American Gods season finale. Spoilers. It was fun).

Also, “I dedicate these deaths to Ostara.” Anyone who’s read the book would get a tingle from that line. It’s also one of a list of Odin Just Doing Odin Things (smirking over Mad Sweeney and Shadow’s bar fight, running over Easter’s bunnies, that old war god bloodlust when he’s executed Vulcan). For all his Ian McShane charm, he’s still an ancient being of terrible appetite, a being you’d have trouble assigning to either ‘good’ or ‘evil’ (Bilquis being another great example of this).

When he smites down Media’s lackeys (arguably the most threatening back-up dancers you’ve ever seen), he turns their deaths into a sacrament, so that his opening salvo in what is now the war between the old and new gods comes firmly from his place of power, the bloody altar (even if okay, there was no blood, and there was no altar. It’s the thought that counts). It was interesting to see Media, Tech Boy, and Mr. World at a disadvantage for a change. Though that’s not likely to last. Can’t wait for season 2.

Also, also:

Easter letting her hair down and rediscovering her true primordial elemental self.

Shadow making lovey dovey faces at Easter. Legit want to see if that actually leads anywhere.

Mr. Nancy saying, “We should start with a story,” and slipping into the trickster storyteller archetype that he is, was perfect.

What is the plural for “Jesus”? Jesuses? Jesi?

Need to see asshole Mad Sweeney again, he’s just been too sweet the last couple of episodes. Which is not bad, maybe I’m just afraid of growing attached.

“Which. Fucking. God?” Laura Moon asks, with real vehemence. I continue to enjoy this characterization of Laura Moon. She’s unpleasant, and a lot of her interactions come down to a coin toss (hehe, coin) between strained amicability and monstrous. This has made her whole sidequest with Leprechaun and Djinn-touched one of the best things about the series.

It is impossible to watch any scene with Gillian Anderson just once. One must watch them over and over again to pick apart the layers of reference and homage to find the cold, calculating machine that is Media underneath.

Actually, any scene with the new gods. Though I may be prejudiced. Even reading the book a whole bunch of years ago, I always found the new gods to be more fascinating. Besides, do we not all worship Media and Tech Boy? Shit I’d sacrifice a spring lamb at my modem if I thought it’d give me a faster connection.

Just finished Episode 3

AND IT’S SO AMAZING I CAN’T EVEN 

Everything is just so beautiful! The dialogues, the plot, the every single detail. I have SO MANY impressions that I don’t know where to start. I have so many feels that I twice went out from the computer to just silently lay on my bed in tears because this was too much (BUT YISS GIVE ME ALL OF THAT). 

That full moment with Clem and bat was so epic and even though there was only one flashback about her I loved how she was involved into the episode, a lot, like in Season 1???? so I didn’t even feel uncomfortable and wasn’t afraid about her screen time. It even felt like TFTBL?? 

I crashed Badger’s head and I loved how Clem was on my side when Jesus started jesusing and what she said to defent Javier and how she even told us about Kenny & Carver (she watched it in my imported playthrough)

AND THAT OPTION TO HUG CLEM it felt so real and lifelike that we’re all people and we all have emotions and feel hurt even when we’re some apocalypse badass 

buuut THIS one little dialogue just killed me to death

AND THAT MUSIC from past seasons in this moment, it was so amazing to feel all of this! 

I still don’t like David and don’t believe him though and I was on the anxious seat till the last minutes of the episode tbh. But it was also an amazing plot twist about rulers of Richmond and all that system and all that undercover stuff Joan did.  

@telltalegames did a great job for this episode of one of my lifetime favourite games, I really feel like I’m again in the past, 2 years ago when it took my heart and this episode just took it again. I just want to send you all the best wishes and huge thanks for all the soul you put into this episode. Can’t wait for next ones to rip my heart again lol
