I spent a lot of time thinking of a way how to get people to read this… I couldn’t find one, so here we go.
I’d thought I would share my thoughts, theory, whatever you want to call it, about Harry and Louis.
If anyone agrees please let me know somehow so I can follow you - I find that the majority of people who invest themselves in Harrys and Louis relationship (I don’t like the term Larry shippers) are people who strongly believe that they are a couple. I would consider myself as a “Larry shipper” if you’re looking to find a label (yes, I do spend a stupid amount of time analysing their relashionship and daydreaming about them being a couple), however, my opinion on this subject is quite different to the common one and I’m finding it hard to find people who would think similar to me.
(By “common one” I mean the theory that they have been in a serious relationship since x-factor, that every girl they’ve ever been close too is pr..you know, the classic theory that shows most popular amongst this fan base.)
If you haven’t stopped reading after the last sentence - this is my theory:
I strongly believe that something has happened between Harry and Louis. I don’t want to put a time frame on things, because lets face it, we actually know nothing and everything is just guessing, but I find it quite obvious that something has gone on between them. (This is coming from a woman whose had her share of sexual and romance relationships)
I think they were infatuated with one another almost right from the start and became very close very quickly, but I also think there wasn’t sexual tension from the begining. They were best friends, sharing all those amazing moments, having a time of their lives. Then started the experimenting. They were spending most of their time together, they knew everything about each other, told each other everything. They are both cheeky and flirty and things probably started as a joke. They were touchy with each other from the very begining, they were comfortable and soon they had very little boundaries with one another.
The friendly hugs were turned into loving gentle touches, those were turned into intense staring and sexualy frustrated touching and those soon into nose licks (remember that?) and everything else that has gone on behind closed doors. If you pin someones hands down, look them right in the eyes and lick their nose infront of your friends and a camera crew..there isn’t much you won’t do when you’re alone with the person. When you say your friend is good with their hands in a cheeky way that may just be a joke. But when that friend replies with: “thank you for that!” it is not a joke anymore.
So they liked each other, they were brave and bold and cheeky and interested and curious and they had sex. Multiple times, plenty of it, I think. Surely, they must have done something. And this is not me trying to convince myself into something I want to believe. I genuinely believe it:) You hear about guys mastrubating infront of each other, guys being interested in their (male) friends body..add Louis and Harrys relationship, love for one another, their personalities into the mix and there you go. We’ve seen Harry been flirty with women, I can’t imagine him being any different too Louis.
Here comes the part where my theory differs. I don’t think they are in a relationship. I think they are both sexually attracted to women and men, maybe? I even think Louis considers himself infact straight and that Harry was his exception. He is his best friend, he admires him, loves him, he is experimental and open, he gets horny. And it happened. But Louis’ girlfriends, female crushes are not made up. I don’t believe in beards (and don’t try to convince me with history of band beards), I don’t believe in someone else writing from Louis twitter, I don’t believe in their management keeping them closeted. Harry and Louis are not the kind of people who would let things like this happen. If they were together they would not let this happen. This is were the fandom gets dramatic. If you think Louis would ever agree to have a beard, to keep a girl close to him just to cover things up, how can you think he’s a good person? You know they would never do that, no one could make them do that, their personalities would not let them, not even in order to keep their carrers. Yes, the music industry can be filthy, I know there are nasty things going on that we know nothing about. But this is their personal life. They wouldn’t let it, they would not give their energy and time and things would be more suspicious. With Eleanor a lot of suspicion was brought up from nothing. Nothing except the fact that some things were being explained from the point a view that Harry and Louis are in a relationship and everything that could make things doubtful was discredited.
I think Louis likes women and is in a “ I’m newly single party mode” right now. Harry is his best friend with whom he has shared a lot. He loves him, supports him, admires him. Harry is more than Stan, Luke, Calvin or other old time friends. He is the person he shared this crazy life turning experience with, the person who understands him most, the person who he knows the most, the person he shares his life with and has shared his body with in the past. Is that not enough reason to get them tattooed on your body?
On the other hand, he is now the person he thinks he needs to publicly avoid as much as possible in order to protect his further relationships with people.
I do think it was hard on Eleanors and Louis’ relationship that Harry kept on being mentioned. He is a protective and caring person and was hard for him to see her get hurt. Hence the bullshit tweets, less interaction with Harry.. (not smart moves if you ask me, but we’ll leave that for now)
Harry I think, is living a life of being openly attracted to men and women. He was with Taylor, probably Kendall, Caroline etc. but was/is probably with men too, the media has just not picked that up as much, because you know, making assumpions about woman-man relationships is apparently easier? He might even be straight, but I believe that with some of his actions he has shown that he could easily be in a relationship with a man. Again, it is obvious that he loves Louis and has a one in a billion relationship with him. A relationship that not many are lucky enough to ever have. I don’t think all of those assumptions about Larry affected him as much as Louis, as he was not in a serios relationship at the time and that he has come to terms that his and Louis close relationship is something to be act upon in private.
Sadly, I do sometimes think that that resulted in them not spending as much time together in general anymore, but then I remember that we really do see such a small portion of their lives and when I see them together, even if standing a few feet apart, turned away from each other, I am calm again. Calm because I know something beautiful has happened and is continuing to happen, even if we dont ever find out what that “beautiful” really is.
