This is the sweet message Harry said before Sign of the Times and after he had suddenly put his pride flag over his mic stand. (As you can tell by my yell I was surprised. Also, the video gets a lot better when Harry starts talking, I thought he was going to leave the stage before the encore but he went straight into his speech and he had the flag so I had to be quick lmao)
“Thank you so much for having us. I um— It’s kind of impossible to say thank you enough times because, like, I just couldn’t be on this stage if it wasn’t for you guys. So, thank you so much for everything that has got me to this place and for all your support since this next song came out. I love you very, very much and um -coughs- this is the last one.”
Then the crowd started to boo and get sad.
“I mean, I just don’t have any more songs. This is just the last— This is just the last- the last one! Now please sing along if you know this one and if I am– If I could possibly be any luckier than I am right now I will see you again very soon! I love you with all my heart, this is Sign of the Times!”
We’re here witnessing the marriage of Emma Swan and Killian Jones, and I can hear a couple of you in the background saying “about bloody time” lol, well yeah. About time indeed.
Now we’ve all witnessed different parts of their journey; some have been there since the beanstalk, others got sucked in by their Neverland kiss- whether you’re a veteran or a relevantly new addition from s5 or 6, there was just something about these two dorks in love that drew us in and made us stay.
And today is the day we get to celebrate the unity of all those moments as we watch them finally start their happy beginning.
There’s been many moments that stick with us. Moments that will forever have an impact on our shipper lives.
A shared drink below deck, Killian showing up in New York, The Captain Swan movie, their surprise hug at the ice wall, their first date, their first I love you, their moving in, the proposals- the list goes on and on.
Whatever your top moments may be, they’ve all lead to this day.
Now it hasn’t been an easy journey… there’s been denial, obstacles, secrets, trust issues, fights, and even death. But they’ve shown us again and again that these set backs only make them stronger, and in the end, true love is worth fighting for every single time.
it’s real. It’s hard work, it’s not always pretty, but when done correctly, can be the most beautiful reward life can offer.
But the most important thing they’ve shown us is hope.
If a lost girl; an orphan, who’s been dealt nothing but hurt, disappointment and abandonment… and a lost boy; a villain, a man who’s lost everyone- including himself to darkness…
If these two lost souls can find each other, and work together to find love, find happiness; that believe in each other and stand by each other to become the best versions of themselves- to become heroes…
It gives us hope that we too can find love and happiness.
