1. Hi, i'm sorry if i'm bothering you but i just have to tell this someone. first of all i was never a larry shipper, never even believed any of the boys are together. but i have 2 friends who do ship larry and apparently i was annoying them with my firm elounor belief and we made a bet. one of them sent me a link to larry treatise, and if by the time i read everything i still don't ship larry they will buy me lunch in college for a whole week. so anyway they sent me the link and a bunch of
2. rainbow hearts blogs. amongst them was also yours. so for the past day and a half ive been reading the treatise, scrolling down your blog and now i’m so angry because THINGS ACTUALLY MAKE SENSE NOW. I had my suspicions that harry is bi/gay for at least since august, but not louis and now,i’ve only read half of everything and i feel strange because it connects. i think theres legit something going on between them. to be honest elounor did seem a bit sketchy sometimes but I believed in what the
3. official narrative told me. I’m so fucking stupid CAN I JUST SAY I FEEL SO DISGUSTED WITH THEIR TEAM!? I’M SO ANGRY I’M 20 YEARS OLD AND AFTER 3 YEARS OF BEING IN THIS FANDOM I FIGURE OUT I’VE BEEN LIED TO ALL THIS TIME!? I FEEL BETRAYED. I GAVE SO MUCH OF MY MONEY AWAY TO GO ON THEIR CONCERTS, BUY THEIR MERCH AND OH FUCK I’M SO MAD RIGHT NOW. CAN THEY GET RID OF THIS RIDICULOUS TEAM BECAUSE THIS IS INHUMAN AND IT’S NOT FAIR. NOT TO US,THE FANS NOR TO THE BOYS AND HARRY AND LOUIS. SO WHAT IF
4. THEY’RE GAY. MANY GIRLS WOULD PREFER THEM BEING TOGETHER RATHER THAN THEM DATING SOMEONE ELSE. Jesus christ, if it weren’t for the fact that I love them so much i would probably sell my otra ticket. Now i’ll have to tell this to my besties and they’ll probably be all smug as fuck, but shit i’m so pissed right now, i’m sorry if your blog doesn’t tolerate cursing but i can’t describe how betrayed i feel right now???Like how many fans actually feel like me or will feel after they discover
5. that their team was lying to them all this time. I’ve never bothered to look into this stuff but, fuck i wish i had sooner because once you do its so obvious. i’m sorry for this rant but you’re the first blog on the list of the blogs they sent me, so i had to write this because i wonder how many messages like mine have you gotten?i bet a lot. I knew their team was fucked up but to go to this extent with closeting two guys who practically signed on with their lives is even worse than i
6. imagined. I feel sorry for louis and harry. the fact that they have to hide is unbelievable. And for fans like me who have yet to read this. can i post a link to your blog and treatise on twitter to some of the people i know? Because i have a feeling they should read this. i’m sorry for this long rant. how do people deal with this usually? i for one, am obviously pissed.
Hi, welcome, thank you for coming to me, and thank you friends for sending you to me!! You aren’t bothering me. I am happy to help new people dive into this when they’re ready. You can absolutely share my blog anywhere you like, and I don’t run theharrylouistreatise but she put up that info to be shared, so share away! :)
First: my blog is 90% cursing. :)
Next, you are NOT stupid. What most Elounor shippers are really are just young and inexperienced, or using denial for what it really is, as a true defense mechanism. There are MILLIONS OF DOLLARS pumping into making Elounor and Harry and his throwaway girls believable. You’ve opened your mind and you’ve LEARNED, which is amazing, so good for you!! :) Always question what the media is telling you, why they’re telling you whatever they’re telling you. Does it make sense? Does everything add up? Who’s benefitting from what you’re being told?
I am getting more and more messages like this as time goes on, and it’s just further solidifying for me that they are seeding (very effectively) for a coming out. That week in August was intense and started pulling people in. Then No Chill November happened and it brought a LOT MORE (current fans and new fans) and it’s only getting more and more obvious with each event. Even if things weren’t intentionally seeding, the media is picking these things up and making them about Larry now. They could never do that before.
You’re absolutely right to be angry and hurt, for yourself and the fandom, and the boys, and society. The homophobia HQ practices and encourages, and the closeting and bearding and sexualizing Harry to the public at such a young age, and really just… pounding the idea in that women are just silent moldable Stepford Wives/paper dolls/mannequins and disposable after men find their pleasure over the winter break is fucking disgusting, and I will see them in hell.
The best thing you can do right now is to challenge the narratives, don’t fuel the bearding stuff, don’t advertise for Tswift by talking about her all the time, etc. And the best way to fight against the homophobia (and really hit HQ in the nuts) is to join us with the Rainbow Hearts and participate in Rainbow Direction! You can find all the info at takemehomefromnarnia. They have a non shipping policy because it’s for everyone, but they don’t care what you ship, and if (not TMHFN opinion - but WHEN) Louis and Harry do come out they will obviously support the hell out of them and the fandom.
