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.
