They say if a crush lasts more than 4 months you’re in love. So what happens when I have been infatuated with you for 36th months? Have I fallen in love with you 9 times? Or have I just wasted 3 years, 36 months, 156 weeks, 1092 days craving you?
wait what was the "Louis' ankles in the 5SOS video" thing?? I don't remember this at all!
Ahhhhhh okay yay I love talking about this. So if you don’t know, the band went on their 3 month hiatus (it started just after Christmas 2013 and went through to like the end of March or something like that [though they still did stuff like film perfume ads and the ghastly you and i video]) and during that time we kept getting smacked over the head with pap photos and fan pictures of Harry off by himself in LA (usually with Jeff).
Louis, meanwhile, was almost completely MIA but would pop up once every couple of weeks (usually in the UK and on Rovers-related business). His twitter, of course, was going full steam ahead with the whole ‘i’m in the uk of course i am oh look celebrity big brother’s on did i mention i love pizza hut’ message to placate the rest of the fandom (because obviously louis’ twitter has always been completely honest and never full of shameless promo but anyway).
It was during the time that the louis and harry are always separated and can never ever be on the same continent narrative was being pushed really hard and other than us making some educated guesses timeline-wise we didn’t really have any concrete proof as to when Louis was in LA and when he wasn’t.
They posted this video on keek of them in LA in mid-January (so when Harry was there too) and you could see Louis’ vans, ankle and jeans moving in the background as well as hear his voice if you listened really carefully (Louis’ gait is fairly distinctive too so everyone flipped out it was awesome). Here’s a post from @bulletproofhalo corroborating the date (January 16th was when we first noticed but the video itself was posted on January 12th 2014).
Again, Louis was MIA often enough then that it wasn’t difficult to picture him sneaking around LA on the dl quite frequently but this was one of the few times we were like BUSTED TOMLINSON.
