I could not simply narrow it down to one specific moment!! The first ever moment for me where I was like, shit larry is real is when they were on xfactor and they were at Simon’s house and Lou had been at hospital most of the day and his returns and Harry runs full pelt at him, it was such a lovely moment. I have so many favourite Larry Moments though
Being all cute and cuddly at that club that one time, when they were so young and it was more okay for them to be Larry
More heartbreaking but still a favourite moment of mine because you can just see Louis go to grab Harry’s hand because that’s normal for him and Harry jerks his hand away and it looks like Zayn has seen it and is freaking out, I love it
Because when they lived together Louis would tweet about Harry’s egg’s benedict and has said he’s never had a fry up that has beaten Hazza’s and Haz just looks so happy that he’s talking about a stupid fry up
THEY WERE SO YOUNG AND THEY WERE SO TOUCHY FEELY WITH EACH OTHER AND HARRY JUST GOES TO STROKE HIS HANDS AND THEN LOUIS LOOKS AT HIM AFTER THEY TOUCH AND ITS SO CUTE LOOK AT THEM
Because of Harry doing his usual I’m in love with lou and all his little things but more so for Louis reaction
He literally looks like maybe they had a talk earlier with management telling them they can’t do that anymore and he did it anyway or maybe they had an argument and harry has admitted this and idk but Harry and Louis are my fave
Because Harry just looks so happy walking up to Louis like YEAH I’M GONNA TELL HIM THIS and then Lou just looks like “shit really??” but then he’s like so happy and he’s all how did I not think of that, gonna treat him for that later
The time they forgot they were on a skype call that could be seen by others and Harry has just walked in without his clothes on Louis just looks so amazed and Harry has that little smirk and I just love it
BECAUSE OF HOW CUTE AND HAPPY THEY LOOK
BECAUSE HARRY LOOKS LIKE HES PROPOSING AND LOUIS IS LIKE SHIT WTF BUT ALSO BECAUSE THEY JUST LOOK LIKE THEY’RE SEEING INTO EACH OTHERS SOULS
The way Louis always melts when Harry’s talking and smiles and he proper listens to what Harry has to say and I luv it
Harry looking at louis who is off screen and secretly pouting/blowing a kiss at him but then trying to cover it up with a mouth twitch and also
THE WINK and it’s a proper like yeah I see you and i love you wink
BABY HARRY TALKING ABOUT HOW HIS FIRST CRUSH WAS ON LOUIS TOMLINSON AND HOW SERIOUS HE IS ON THE ITS MUTUAL YEAH WE’VE DISCUSSED IT PART BECAUSE I BET THEY SPEND HOURS TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY FIRST MET AND THEY KNEW EVEN FROM THEM PEEING ON EACH OTHER THAT THEY WERE IN LOVE
BEcause Louis looks so happy that he said that like idk was it your first song that you danced together as a married couple???? I’d like to know pls. And the meaning behind the actual song just links in nicely with them
Because Harry is so seriously in the fact that he’d never leave him, he almost looks at Zayn with disgust that he even had to ask that question and yet again they were babies still, and they just have known for so long that they weren’t gonna leave each other
Because idk, they just, idk look at them, I wonder which one popped the question first, I bet it was louis when he was drunk and harry told him that he’d say yes if he was being serious and he wasn’t drunk and then louis asked again a few days later when he was completely sober and harry just laughs and agrees
Because they look so much like a couple, like when you’re at a party or a gathering and your partner is listening or talking to someone and you’re bored and want their attention so you nuzzle them and they just kind of touch you to let you know that they know you exist and they’ll be with you in a minute, so cute
NOW KISS ME YOU FOOL, BEcause of how much they used to openly kiss and stuff when they were being recorded. They were just so happy to be together i luv it i luv them
This is the last one I have saved on my laptop , just look at them, louis is too distracted by Harry’s face to even properly grab Liam’s foot and Harry’s just looking fondly at Louis and its so nice to just see them comfortable and happy ugh
How can people not even ship them platonically is beyond me
I have always been super interested in the Magi, and more specifically Balthazar. Everything I have ever read always indicated that Balthazar is TRADITIONALLY portrayed as a POC, but with no historical proof that he actually was. I'm not sure I accept this intellectually, especially given the geographical region that all of this took place. Have you encountered any resources about the Biblical Magi that would support the idea that any or all of them were POC?
Whew, okay there is a lot wrong with this question, including the idea that you think I’m trying to convince you (or anyone) somehow that the “real” Magi were…anything. I’m no expert on Christianity, but I do know a few things.
Thirdly, why would you think that by posting Medieval European artworks showing what they may have believed the Magi looked like, I’m trying to make a point that they are somehow accurate depictions of people who may have lived more than a thousand years before that?
Like, you want to go ahead and prove to me that the Magi actually ever physically existed before you ask me for proof of what they looked like?
Because let’s be honest, what you’ve really just asked me is to somehow “prove” the races of characters from the Christian bible. And what freaks me out is that you have already decided that they must have been white unless proven otherwise to your personal satisfaction.
The Early Modern artworks I post are not meant to make a point about what the people written about in the bible looked like. They’re meant to demonstrate something about the times and places in which the artworks were created.
You might have noticed that the figures in Adoration paintings aren’t wearing clothing that dates to any biblical time period, they are wearing clothes (and hairstyles) that match when they were created, by and large.
These works show what Medieval European artists thought these people would have looked like. They aren’t some kind of accurate depiction or portrait of what characters in the bible “really” looked like, and they’re not supposed to be. Something like that would be an entirely different topic.
His clothing was full and ample, as befits a lord; the cloth was as
blue as azure, most sober and comely. His expression was merciful, the colour of his face a comely brown with pronounced features; his eyes were black, most comely and handsome, appearing full of tender pity…” (118)
[…]The brown of his fair face with the handsome blackness of the eyes was most suited to showing his holy gravity… (119)
This conceptualization didn’t change until much later, which not-so-coincidentally coincided with European colonialism, genocide, and the advent of chattel slavery. You can read documents for yourself that show how this “problem” of dark-skinned Mary and Jesus was considered in need of correction by 18th and 19th century European writers and philosophers:
How the most unhappy of all appearances could have crept
in-that, probably for Egyptian or Abessinian reasons, the Mother of God
is portrayed as brown, and the face of Our Savior printed on Veronica’s
veil was also given a moorish color-may be clarified when that part of
art history is more closely examined.
And that last is most likely why you believe what you do about people of color and history, “proof” and the Adoration of the Magi. It has little to do with the bible, contemporaneous geography, or even the middle ages; it has a lot more to do with the colonial-era retcon of the Medieval European imagination.
