Hi Phoenix, I'm a little new to this whole BDSM thing, can you tell me what you see in Harry that makes you characterize him as a sub and what you see in Louis that makes you characterize him as Dom? thank you in advance :)
Oh god, literally so many things. They can all be summed up by this:
the way they interact with each other and occupy each other’s space.
Like, nothing about their size or shape or appearance or anything…it’s all just in their interaction. Like…Louis is in charge, Harry is his baby, that’s just how it looks to me, as an outsider observing their dynamic. As a dom, I recognize so many things in the way Louis treats Harry…he watches him CONSTANTLY, pushes him and pushes him and pushes him at the same time he’s so tender with him, so careful and so ready to jump to his defense. He teases him and makes him squirm but stops anyone else from doing the same thing, because it’s not just teasing, it’s PLAYING. Furthermore, Harry so rarely pushes back, he takes it, he blushes, his smiles, he PREENS under that attention. Louis flusters Harry and observes him closely to gauge his reaction, to see how much more he can needle out of him, how much further he can push. And Harry loves it!!! He loves when Louis teases, it makes him get syrupy and soft and glowy. When the other boys do it he gets annoyed, but when Louis pushes, he just sort of sinks into it, accepts it, accommodates it. He obeys, he does whatever Louis says, when Louis gives him lyric changes or asks him to tell a story or whatever else. Also, Louis guides Harry, physically, with his hands. Harry floats around and lets himself do that because he knows Louis will be there to protect him, take his elbow, guide him with that hand at the end of his waist. Compass to the ship, etc. It just…it looks familiar to me, as someone who lives that lifestyle.
There are countless examples of this dynamic…when Louis grabbed Harry’s face and made him talk for him and Harry folded his hands so sweetly and got soft at Nickelodeon studios, “is it as deep as your voice?” and Harry’s immediate flustered obedience, when Harry was asked “what would you do if you had one day to live” and Louis kept saying “what else Harry? what else?” to every point of his answer, smirking the whole time and Harry got so pink and squirmy, THE ENTIRE NOKIA LAUNCH, tHE ENTIRE SPIN TOWERS INTERVIEW, that time harry said he’d like being a bed and Louis chimed in with “so you’d like to be used?” with that knowing smirk??? ENDLESS moments, I could go on.
