otp: mutual. we've discussed it

Okay something that fucks me up is how the interviewer responded when Harry said “My first real crush was Louis Tomlinson.” Because she didn’t hear him the first time so he repeated it, but she didn’t laugh or question it or automatically assume it was a joke. Because anyone from here to outerspace could hear the sincerity in his voice and see it in his face in that flicker of a moment where he was deciding whether he was going to answer honestly or not. So anyway, after he says Louis is his crush, the interviewer doesn’t brush it off or even sound confused, but she asks him how Louis feels about him??? Like without even batting an eyelash. And Harry is SO happy because he gets to say “It’s mutual, we’ve discussed it.” He is SO happy to be telling someone that he’s got a crush on a beautiful boy and that that beautiful boy likes him back. And just when you think it can’t get any better, the interviewer says “That’s beautiful, Harry.” She never once treats it as a joke and she SUPPORTS him because not only is it okay, it’s BEAUTIFUL. And the way his face lights up is JUST…oh my god. No matter how much we appreciate that moment, it will always be underappreciated. Find that interviewer. Find her and give her a hug or a winning lottery ticket or the world.
