I'm so confused and I don't even know where all this is heading anymore. I really think it's leading to a coming out but I don't get why it's so silent on the babygate end or why gross ass Xarry is being pushed so much. It's annoying and confusing. What do you think, personally, is coming from all this?
I’m actually ranting and raving to Beth right now about Xander. He annoys me, but not because of his actual presence, just because I think it’s being inflated so much.
Babygate caught literally everyone in this fandom off guard. Not one of us saw that Sun cover and didn’t sit back in our chairs and say, “Oh, what the actual fuck?!” I think it’s okay to not want to be caught off guard again.
Another thing I’ll say is the problem this fandom has with disagreement. If I express an opinion that’s in direct enough contradiction to the opinion of another blogger, then I must be “calling them out” in some way. Sometimes that’s true– call out culture on tumblr is a very real thing, a thing I’m not a fan of. But sometimes it’s just expressing an opposing point of view.
My opinion is that Xander is a distraction. My opinion on BG is that they’re waiting for a reason, and I won’t pretend to know what that reason is. All I’m saying is that June -the wild, audacious, blatant month of June- has easily been ditched and forgotten with the onset of Babygate and now with Xander. They’re doing a fabulous job of controlling their narrative and bringing the reigns in tighter than ever before. Push and pull.
I still think a CO is imminent. I do not think Xander serves a romantic purpose. I do not think Louis impregnated Briana. I -do- however, think that Harry and Louis are very much in love and are prepared to come out. Seeing a timeline that’s usually hidden from public view before the big drop being played out in front of our eyes is nothing short of amazing and amazingly frustrating. But it’s still happening. They’re still together and they’re still coming out.
