So now everything makes sense, they knew each other prior to filming X factor OH and get this… something we seemed to have looked over is that they’re wearing the SAME shirt for their auditions, maybe it was a good luck charm?? Simon wanted to make sure he got credit for putting 5 strangers together even though Harry and Louis probably arrived in the SAME car funny how that worked out. Which explains the HUGE embracing hug Larry shared on stage after becoming a group, it explains WHY Harry’s original twitter handle was “Harry Tomlinson” because that’s a very adolescent thing to do when you’re young and in love, it explains how Harry saying Louis was his first real crush (we now know in highschool.) this explains everything from why they had to keep it a secret to why they’re bond was so special. Simon created a band of 3 strangers and 2 friends/lovers. I rest my fucking case.
I like the X Factor imagine story, but could you pick up at "Your Song" where his voice cracks and y/n tries to hide in her laughter and Harry sees it and gets offended?
You were now both focused back on the laptop screen in front of you as you were cuddled up in Harry’s lap, so content as you watched young Harry in his soft white sweater that made him look so soft and cuddly. You smiled as the Harry on the screen started singing his solo now in “Your Song”, fixated on the boy who had become the man you were now cuddled up next to. And as the song neared its end, you couldn’t help but burst into laughter when Harry’s voice cracked in the video. You’d never realized that had happened and you couldn’t help but laugh at how cute it was. You didn’t want Harry to think you were laughing at him, though, so you tried clearing your throat to cover your chuckles.
However, as soon as the song ended, Harry leaned forward and paused the video before leaning back, his arms no longer wrapped around you.
“Alright, that’s enough of that,” he said, sounding slightly dejected.
“Harry, what? I’m enjoying this so much, honestly, can we please keep watching?”
“Yeah I can tell you’re enjoying it. I don’t know I’m just not feeling it anymore, might go take a shower or something,” he responded, his voice much flatter than usual.
You hadn’t realized how offended he would be just because you laughed when his voice cracked in the video. You honestly thought it was just so cute and you never meant to put him down. But you suddenly felt awful as you thought back to when Harry was so self-conscious about his voice and so worried about screwing up.
You sat forward and turned around to sit facing him, taking one of his large hands in yours. He kept his eyes down towards the couch and the pout on his face made him look even more helpless but so adorable.
“Hey Harry? I’m really sorry, Haz,” you told him quietly. You couldn’t help but match the pout on his face with your own as you looked at him. He just looked so bummed out and it was all your fault.
“S’nothing, it doesn’t matter.” He didn’t sound convincing at all.
“Harry, please look at me,” you told him as you brought your hand to his face, gently using your thumb and forefinger to lift his chin up. He finally looked at you, and the sadness in his eyes made you feel devastated.
“Baby, I promise you I was only laughing because I thought it was adorable. You sounded perfect, as you always have and you always do. And I will always be proud of you, so much more than you’ll ever know. I love you so much,” you offered, seriously and with your eyes locked on his. “Watching these videos with you just makes me so happy, seeing you how you were back then. And I’m really lucky to get to watch them with you.”
Harry bit his lip and finally pulled you closer to him, this time taking your hand in his.
“Thank you, little one. I just, I don’t know like I’m not really self-conscious about my voice and all now but I guess because I was back then, just watching myself from those times kind of makes me more sensitive about it,” he told you. “I shouldn’t’ve overreacted, I’m sorry.”
You smiled and leaned forward to kiss his lips, sweetly and slowly, your fingers running up and down his arm.
“You shouldn’t ever feel self-conscious about that stuff, Harry, your voice is so beautiful and unique. And I’m not the only one who thinks that, otherwise I don’t think you would be this famous,” you laughed as Harry smiled back at you after you pulled away from the kiss.
“I love you very much,” Harry told you before sweetly kissing your nose.
“I love you more,” you responded with a smile.
“Not true, don’t start with this,” Harry laughed, knowing you would end up arguing with him about who loves who more. You felt better getting him to laugh, but you still felt bad about laughing at him.
“You want to see something that’s actually embarrassing?” You suddenly asked him, dreading what you were about to do.
Harry looked at you with a smirk, his brows slightly furrowed in confusion.
You took a deep breath and typed in something quickly on YouTube before pulling the laptop closer for both of you to see.
“This is a video my brother took of me when I was about fourteen, that I could never convince him to take down. I hate that this is still on here,” you told Harry before clicking on the link. You watched as a huge smile started to light up Harry’s face, a pout now on yours.
And next thing you knew, the sound of your off-key singing, paired with an insanely ridiculous dance routine, was the focus of Harry’s attention. And he burst out into laughter, not even attempting to cover it up like you had.
You paused the video after a minute, unable to take it anymore.
“Oh I’m sorry, love, but that’s too funny,” Harry laughed as he tried to wrap his arms around you.
“You’re the worst,” you told him, a smile starting to form on your face even though you tried to hide it. “Well now we’re even, except mine was way worse so you owe me like a milkshake or something,” you decided.
Harry smiled and kissed your cheek. “Agreed,” he told you. “But I just have one question. Why did you think it was okay to wear a skirt over jeans,” he squawked as he jumped off the couch to spare himself from being tackled by you.
“Harry!” you yelled, laughing as you ran after your extremely amused boyfriend who you couldn’t help but adore even when he was making fun of you.
