Um it's 2017... Kind of embarrassing to still be a larrie after all this time, just saying
the year is 2017. the one direction hiatus has been taking a toll on all of us. each day, we wait anxiously for the news of the revival of the band. however, there are more problems lingering in the shadows of the news of solo projects and movie premieres…. what is the state of larry? are they still together? larries began to disappear all over the world. the antis, houies, and ex larries scour the internet, finding any traces of larries remaining on this site. the survivors are strong, but they are constantly in danger of the lurkers finding their blog and anonymously attacking them.
i sit in my room, looking at my blue and green watch, wondering when this will all end. when will we be free? when will louis and harry be free? i shed a tear thinking about the state of the fandom, and the world. i hear a knock on my door, interrupting my train of thought. startled, i shove the watch back in my sock drawer, not wanting to expose myself as a larrie for having these colors as part of my wardrobe. it was nestled along with my rainbow bear and leeds festival bracelet, the surviving artifacts after the anonymous figures invaded my neighborhood. i got away unscathed last time, but my close friend deactivated. i needed to maintain my secret, in fear of the repercussions of being a larrie in this day and age.
i open my door to a figure, hidden in the shadows, features obscured by the darkness. i swallow my anxiety in the silence. ‘who are they?’ i wonder. the figure reaches into their pocket and holds up a phone, open to my blog. my eyes dart from the phone, to the faceless figure, unsure of how they found out. i shake in fear. then i hear the sentence; the sentence that every larrie fears… “damn r u a larrie?” they say. i scream, slamming the door. my heart is pounding. how did they find out? i’ve been so careful.
they began pounding against my door, attempting to kick it down. i can hear their angry yells from behind the door. “AIMH was 6 years ago! get over it! louis has a child! harry and kendall are my otp!” i run to my wall and touch my one direction poster, hand lingering in between harry and louis. “i’m doing this for you.” i close my eyes and take a deep breath, accepting my fate as the door abruptly gets knocked down.
i feel the presence move closer to me. i knew this was the end. i braced myself for my demise, when suddenly, i heard a ping from my phone and the phone of my attacker. i slowly opened my eyes and saw the faceless figure unlock their phone. i did the same. what i saw shocked me… it was a tweet… from louis to harry. what? how could this be? i look back at my attacker, mouth agape and eyes wide.
they murmured under their breath, “@Harry_Styles happy birthday mate! have a sick night.” we stood in silence, the pounding of our hearts and our deep breathing filling the room. they look back up at me, expression unreadable. they placed their phone back in their pocket, and walked out of the room with their shoulders hunched. i never saw the mysterious figure again.
and that is the story about how i’m surviving, as a larrie, in 2017. thank you louis, your tweet saved my life. the end.

Harry swallows hard, clearing his throat. “Hi Lou,” he says, looking at Louis reluctantly. He’s even more gorgeous than he remembers, so much, he feels uneasy looking directly at him, he’s so beautiful.
Louis looks at Harry, does a quick once-over and smiles, eyes so bright and blue—just how Harry remembers. “Harold!” He gets up out of his seat and embraces him into a warm hug. It’s a friendly platonic hug; one that ends way too soon. Harry wishes it would last longer so that he can breathe Louis in and memorize his new but somehow still familiar scent. It instantly leaves his body aching for more.
Harry returns to London after five years. Stuck in the past with “what ifs” and “what might have beens”, he sees that his friends and ex (and possible love of his life) Louis have all moved on with their lives while he finds himself questioning his own life choices, past and present.
it’s terrifying to me that that anyone, including people who think Elounor was real, can look back at Louis’ face of absolute misery every time he was with Eleanor the last year (at least) of their relationship and can look back at how happy he was post-breakup, yet still thinks he’d run back into her arms after breaking up with Danielle (or that she’d run back into his arms after all that happened after they broke up)
and that’s not even factoring in this obviously transparent social media bullshit
English Professor Louis Tomlinson’s passion for the occult has been a source of mockery and derision for most of his life. When he hears whispers of a travelling freak show newly established in London claiming the existence of a monstrous sea hybrid, half-man, half-fish, Louis sees it as his ticket to credibility amongst his peers. The summer he spends undercover working on the show, however, gives him much more than that.
before the girlband defense squad wakes up and i have to start blocking their blogs to avoid washing my eyes with bleach after reading certain posts they will inevitably write, i want to let people who can read know that this is not a problem of the girls themselves but their band and what they represent. they were created from LIES considering Simon said in a public video interview that they come from the ‘be in the band’ project Louis was involved in, when we all know it’s blatantly not true and if this wasn’t shady or stunt related or some weird technique to fuck louis over even more by being associated to this ‘project’, he wouldn’t have to lie about where the band comes from, especially considering that Louis works in the US, fans know it well and he could have said they met while Louis was working in LA, simple as that. Secondly, this band was always attached to more lies and lies and lies concerning Louis, D*nielle’s presence every time there was something related to that - lies, babygate things every time someone mentioned them - lies, Louis is the new Simon - lies, Sony Syco everything that could link Louis to Simon - lies, lies, LIES. Add to this the fact that this fandom KNOWS, as Louis recently said, how to read things that are happening even if they are not confirmed or blatant. And fans see how little excited he looks, how he does the bare minimum to promote this band with no name, no concert, no album, no single, no performance, NOTHING but a link to Simon, Syco and Louis. I mean, if it was his first project as a mentor or producer or whatever he wants to be for them, he’d definitely be excited and happy considering how passionate and creative and loving and caring he is with people he willingly works with. Fans don’t blindly accept everything is thrown at them just because it’s Louis we are talking about. Or any of the boys really. Look at how the fandom reacted to James Arthur when they thought we would love him and suddenly forgot what a dick he is, or to anyone trying to attach themselves to these boys (and especially Louis considering the people he has to work with) when they have no good intentions but getting promo out of them and that’s it. Now compare the reaction we had when Steve arrived and how we loved him from the start once we saw through his actions that their professional relationship was based on respect and appreciation only. Once again, this band of girls is not the problem, I am sorry for them cause they are young and going willingly to work with Simon Cowel is the last thing I wish to them, the problem here is how they presented it, how Louis publicly acts with them and how they seem to be another stunt added to the top of shitty stunts they gave to Louis last year and continues this year. It’s not hard to separate the two things, try, you won’t die I promise.
Remember where you were the day Lairport happened?
Remember where you were when Louis went to Barcelona and Harry showed up with a Barcelona coin bracelet? Or when Harry took fan pics at Selfridges and Louis showed up with a new shirt from Selfridges the very next day?
Remember when RBB made his glorious return and how we’d wait for pictures of him and SBB before every show?
Remember when Liam started reading all of the signs that were obviously Larrie signs, when they’d show the ones with rainbows on the big screen?
Remember when Harry started running with rainbow flags, and how proud of him Louis was? Remember how respectful Niall was of our flag when someone threw one on stage?
Remember when they first sang No Control to a sold out stadium and the crowd erupted like a volcano and the whole stadium shook because everyone was losing their minds, including the boys, with how happy we all were?
Remember when they first sang Eighteen and how Harry and Louis couldn’t stop turning to look at each other?
Remember the fan book in Sweden that said “only turn the page if the following statement is true: Larry is real” and Liam opened it and the looks Harry and Louis gave each other?
Remember Wheel Larrow? And when they did it again onstage during a show and Louis let Harry win like he always does?
Remember where you were the night they hugged each other on stage for the world to see, and the arena erupted into frantic screams of joy at seeing these two boys being able to publicly embrace again?
Remember what it’s like to be a Larrie? And to believe in the love between two boys who met when they were sixteen and eighteen and fell in love and have been fighting side by side ever since?
I don't think its insulting #louisgetanewteam because they do nothing at all PR or mgnt Louis lucky we are still here fans and steve team got that song to over 200 million streams & no2 uk charts he deserves better is what we mean not anything else
You’re missing the point. I don’t care if it’s insulting to Louis’s team; I think they’re horrible and treat him horribly. But saying “Louis get a new team” is putting all the responsibility on him and that’s not fair. He is TRAPPED in this situation that is constructed to hurt and sabotage him. You think he doesn’t already know he needs a new team? His best friend liking all those tweets and comments about how awful JGG and Rusty are should tell you that, yeah, he knows, and has likely shared those frustrations with Calvin.
But no one in the GP knows that. No one in the GP knows Louis’s situation. Anyone looking at that hashtag would see fans /berating/ their “fave” for having a bad team. How does that look good for him?
Louis needs our support and I’m happy to give it to him, but this is not support; this is putting him in a position in which he /can’t/ comment or defend himself, can’t say for the benefit of the GP “hey i’m being sabotaged,” can’t say /anything/, and anything “he” could say would probably be aggressive and in support of JGG like people need to stop thinking we can fix everything by putting a spotlight on it. We can’t. People just.. need to know when and how to comment. And this isn’t it
I think people lack perspective wrt Louis situation. Like yeah, JHO probably would have charted better if they actually used his sm and crusty is a useless sea urchin but the song still did amazing? it went platinum and he just performed in front of, what, 150000 people? And not to hashtag jinx it but while bg is still officially a thing it hasn't really been a /thing/ since september last year except for one muted 3 second video so I don't get the doom and gloom, he's doing great career wise yk
I totally get where you’re coming from and in fact, just yesterday I was saying i think in the long run, Louis might be the one who makes the most money out of everyone. I’m pretty sure he’s made the most this past year.
BUT at the same time, a huge part of why JHO is doing well is because of Steve and his efforts, and even more importantly, it’s because of FANS. And what his team seems to be doing is slowly and systematically attempting to destroy that for whatever reason. Look at how many people have already turned on him or completely washed their hands of him because it’s just too much drama. Obviously I don’t mean his hardcore fanbase, but casual fans that just read headlines and say fuck this shit i’m out.
Then on top of that…there’s Louis himself. Look at his face when he has to stunt. That’s not a happy dude. Sure it’s been a couple months since he’s had to do anything baby related, but that doesn’t mean it’s not constantly hanging over his head. When he meets fans and they ask, making sure his family still plays along, making sure no one slips up in any way and he has to do damage control. That weighs on a person.
And then there’s his reputation. For years, fans were afraid to approach him and thought he was “the mean one”. It’s only within the past few years that this has changed and now…now he’s the guy that punched a girl in the face. He’s got his babymama claiming he’s basically unstable. To a guy like Louis who obviously loves and appreciates his fans SO MUCH…that’s gotta sting. That’s not going back to square one, that’s going to like square -5.
I’m not saying that he can’t overcome any of this and it IS all doom and gloom forever and ever amen because I really do think he will be fine eventually. But that doesn’t stop the current situation from sucking. Sure, he’s is doing well career wise despite all of this shit, but that’s a testament to who he is as a human and how fierce this fanbase is.
