louis met harry

“And we didn’t even know each other...”

Look. I know Zayn and Louis applied for the same job. And Niall and Liam went to the same Busted concert (presumably when they were like 8 years old when Busted was touring before 1D was formed). Both of those things are neat coincidences.

But they aren’t very significant to any of them, because they’ve mentioned both of those things like one time in interviews over the course 6 years (and it was arguably to try and make the Script concert seem like less of a thing). 

You know what’s significant? What Harry himself made significant? 

The Script concert. He had to make a public declaration about it…twice!

“This place is incredible to me…I remember coming to quite a few gigs here. I remember I stood right there watching the Script and it turns out, Louis was at the same gig!“ - Manchester, 22 December 2011

“This venue is quite special to me. I’ve been to quite a few gigs here before. And I remember, about 3 years ago, I was stood just about there to watch the Script in here, and it turns out, that Louis was at the same gig!” - Manchester, 23 December 2011

Louis and Zayn have never described their mutual employment pursuits as “incredible” or “quite special.” And neither have Liam and Niall described the Busted concert that way, despite it being literally the same scenario as Louis and Harry attending a Script concert at the same venue on the same day.

So you have to wonder why Harry cares so much, why it’s such a curious thing that they were there, together, on the same night, at the same time, doing the same thing, and they didn’t even know each other. 

But then fate twisted, and they did meet, and became so important to each other, that it made the night they missed each other that much more significant. 


wishing i could copy & paste myself onto this vine.


Neil Patrick Harris and Harry Styles have something in common.           They play the role of a guy who likes a lot of beautiful girls but in reality they’re in a lovely gay marriage

If I ever met Louis or Harry…

What I would like to say:

You deserve all the happiness in the world.

You two stole my heart.

Do you know how many people are rooting for you?

What you feel for each other is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

What I will say:

Would you mind signing this?


fuck they’re so real

How they met
  • Louis: *in the urinals* I gotta go, I gotta go, I gotta go *notices there's a guy admiring his curls in the mirror but doesn't care* calm down Louis. You'll do it fine. You practiced all the weekend for this... *his phone starts vibrating in his pocket* AHHH WHAT *accidently splashes pee on Harry's back* Oops!

so, you’re new to the fandom/shipping larry? welcome aboard, it sucks is amazing.

this is going to be very long so be warned. it’s gonna be split into sections and i will try and cover as much as i can, if not everything.

here are the categories: (yes it really is that deep)

  1. The beginning (how they met)
  2. X Factor Larry
  3. After X Factor
  4. Closeting/Bearding
  5. Other important things

The Beginning:

So, five years ago today (10/07/15), Louis and Harry met at the X Factor Auditions and before they got put together, they met in the toilets:

and there’s a theory that their first words said to each other were “oops” and “hi”(which they have tattooed) and another theory that harry peed on louis at the urinals:

we can all assume that harry is quoting louis here since it all matches up.

also, when they met in the toilet, louis knew harry would be famous, so they got a picture together:

fate works in a weird way, right?

ANYWAY. they then coincidentally got put in the same band together…

and this was their reaction to getting put through in a band.. spot the couple.

this then takes us to the second part:

X Factor Larry:

so basically, x factor larry was so painfully obvious and they were crushing SO hard on each other during this time

here are a few gifs/images from the x factor tour diaries:

they hardly knew each other and louis is already doing this to him

okay this is too much




here’s some more images from x factor:

such twinks

the fond and tension is unreal

so happy 

and my personal favourite:


we also have the iconic sugarscape interview where harry admits his feelingds for louis:

(that’s beautiful harry)

we also have some cute family photos too:

harry with louis’ mum during x factor <3

and here we have harry’s mum with louis and louis’ mum with harry :)))))

i’d post more photos but this is probably already way too long and we have LOTS more to talk about!!

this brings us to the next part:

After X Factor:

after the x factor, louis  split with his girlfriend hannah and the theory is that this was a real relationship but he ended it so he could be with harry. 

2011 larry was wild to say the least:


aand let’s talk about the importance of LEEDS:

so they went together:

what a cute date

and then harry wore his bracelet for SO LONG until it was literally falling apart

he worre it for around 9-10 months before it eventually broke/he got rid of it but then coincidentally got a tattoo in the same spot

it says “i can’t change” now obviously we don’t know the meaning behind this tattoo since it’s personal, but we can interpret it as something special :)  we will delve deeper into their tattoos later, though.

Bearding / Closeting:

here is the most interesting but also the saddest part of the ship. they can’t come out yet, for one reason or anther. one of the main reasons we speculate behind this is management won’t let them because it’s too “dangerous” for the brand (aka the fans), so we get beards. 

if you don’t know what a beard is, this sums it up:

and this is why harry has the “womanizer” image to avoid any gay rumours:

not only does this make harry seem straight, it also gives them publicity as a band and an overall hype so they sell more records and get more money. however, we know the truth:

louis has also had a beard:

this was painful to see, but im glad it’s over now and i don’t want to delve much into that because i could go on for hours.

Other Important Things:

there are SO many important things/events that have happened to do with larry and im bound to miss a few so i apologise in advance.

let’s talk about their MULTIPLE couple tattoos:

so matchy matchy


also i wanna talk about how when they hold hands their tattoos match up with each other and that makes me so sad

ANYWAYS, let’s get to the good stuff:

jealous! harry is my aesthetic tbh

but you don’t wanna fuck with jealous louis either

“if that”

and then we have the infamous wellington footage:

unfortunately the footage is really low quality but in the video louis shouts “boyfriend” and they look like they kiss!!!!!! but i guess we’l never know

here’s some more iconic stuff:

speaking of cooking…

louis says this is the most romantic thing he’s ever done for someone… alright.

and let’s not forget that THEY MOVED IN WHEN HARRY WAS 16

louis was harrys LEGAL GUARDIAN

this is all too much


another iconic moment:

idk if i missed anything else important but i PROBABLY did

i also wanna conclude with a few other things:

AND THERE WE HAVE IT, FOLKS. honestly if you survived this, then kudos to you, my friend. 

if you enjoyed this post or ive missed anything, make sure to message me (and follow me ;)) but thank you for reading this mess!
