Ok, today I saw THIS beautiful edit (Idk who the author is) and I wanted to redraw it. I used a quick tutorial that Radadusta made for me (ok, it’s nothing compared to her drawings but i tried XD), thank you Ros!
Louis, a pro football player of Chelsea, is forced to retire after a severe injury to his foot. After he recovers and is told the news that he’ll never play professionally again, he decides to go coach at his old secondary school. Harry, the health teacher, loves to let him know how big of a fan he is.
Louis is appointed the role of Guardian Angel, and his first mission is a boy named Zayn Malik. Unfortunately, it seems that a certain Demon has gotten to him first. Or… an Angel/Demon AU where Angel Louis hates Demon Harry, but somewhere along the way that stops being so true.
Yes, it is a cult. And no wonder I fell into the appeal of it. There’s a group of people supporting you, there’s a big belief system, there’s a villain to collectively hate.
Everything is spun around so many times until it fits the Larrie narrative. You really get dizzy and stop thinking for yourself.
Sometimes you get doubts but you suppress them because you’d just get hate for voicing them.
I ran a Larrie blog for three and a half years now.
I started it because Larry was bloody cute and I think many of you will agree with me on that. They were so fucking adorable. All the hugs, looks, they just loved each other and it made me happy.
But then Louis got a girlfriend and Larries watched it and didn’t want it to happen so they made up this big management conspiracy. Everything was apparently staged, Elounor was fake, Harry and Louis were forcibly closeted. The more they pushed this narrative, the less interaction Louis and Harry had. Wonder why that was?
And I feel empty, not because I lost my belief in Larry. I have had my doubts for over a year now. But because I lost friends and I see other friends enlacing themselves ever deeper into the conspiracy.
The baby isn’t real.
Okay, the baby is real, but it’s not Louis’ baby.
Okay, Louis claimed it to be his, but there will be a denial soon.
Okay, the paternity test was positive, but the picture is photoshopped.
And so on.
Louis and Harry are to be protected at all costs because they are innocent, pure, weak human beings who can’t defend themselves against big, bad management. They are puppets on a string. They never touched a woman because eww. That would make them less pure and innocent.
“Babygate” is just the tip of the iceberg. How many times have things happened that needed to be spun around to “understand” them.
Louis’ bullshit tweet.
Harry kissing this blonde girl, I don’t remember her name.
Harry making sexual innuendo about pussy, but that was obviously just an outsider perspective because he himself has never touched pussy.
Haylor. Oh my God, what a horrible time in the Larrie fandom.
Elounor. No wonder they were looking awkward together, their every bloody move was being watched and commented on.
Now I see what back then I didn’t see:
That WE were the ones making Louis and Harry hide their friendship.
WE were the ones making Elounor awkward.
WE were the ones watching and analyzing their every move.
And I AM SORRY.
I’m sorry I participated in that. I’m sorry and I can only say that I was brainwashed. I was part of a cult.
I’m free now and I can’t believe I was part of this for so long. I was giving in to big larrie blogs who shut down every doubting word with sarcastic hateful posts.
One last word for these blogs.
You are bullies.
But I also feel sorry for you.
You must feel so weak in your own lives that you have the need to build a cult on the internet and bully everyone who doesn’t follow it.
