The thing that seriously annoys me is how much people try to tell us not to ship Xander and harry, because apparently we think Harry sleeps with everything that moves.
I and many other bloggers may have different opinions but I think we agree on a few things.
First - shipping Xarry is fun. for now. I have to admit I like Larry, and I’ll probably always like Larry, but the thing is, Larry’s the most difficult ship in this fandom. It’s hard to ship them, where they hardly give us anything to work with. I admit, Larries sometimes get lucky and get good things, but unfortunately soon after a slap happens and it’s all shitty again. I’ll always be grateful that I joined this fandom in early 2012, before Larry was shut down, so I got to enjoy the ship like it used to be. Two boys, the best of friends, being free and acting like they should be. Their friendship and chemistry was one of the most beautiful things and it made this band even more likeable. Those were good times, and shipping was fun, but yeah, soon after it only spiralled down from there and everything what was fun gradually disappeared. I distanced myself from Larry because the constant drama and everything was causing me great anxiety. In tough times like they were this year (what with Zayn leaving, twitter feuds, Louis unexpectedly being a dad, the band going on hiatus), some people want to find something lighter and more enjoyable. Staying in this fandom is so damn hard, so it’s no wonder why I see so many people leaving this fandom behind. Like I said, shipping Xarry or Xazza, or Handler or whatever you call it, is fun for now. It’s a fun ship and there aren’t any factors that show us we should stop, because almost nobody is being serious about this ship.
And that leads me to the next thing.
Harry and Xander appear to be good friends, what with Xander constantly visiting Harry on tour, and Harry visibly enjoying his presence. NOBODY, would ship them if it was visible they make each other uncomfortable.
But it’s right on contrary, Harry seems genuinely happy when Xander is around and fuck, Harry deserves to be happy more than anything.
So when you see people who ship Xarry please don’t make fun of them or accuse them that they think Harry is a manwhore. Because nobody thinks so. The people I’ve met who ship Xarry don’t think Harry sleeps around.
We ship Harry and Xander for fun, we’re not being serious, most people do no think they’re dating or anything (Even if they were I’m sure they would both get a lot of support).
But so far nothing indicates a relationship, I see a really good friendship, and I’m so happy Harry has friends with whom he enjoys spending time together.
