rainbow spots

anonymous asked:

I'm new to the fandom, and I saw that article about Louis from the LGBT website. I know all about "homophobic Louis" unfortunately because it's one of the first thing you learn about when you join the 1D fandom (how people believing he was gay and in a relationship with Harry ruined their friendship forever, how he couldn't even understand the idea of supporting a gay man coming out without calling it bullshit...) but I'd love to know what he did to support the community, I had no idea he did!

it’s very frustrating to me that people are still getting confronted with this utter nonsense but please know, it’s not true:

louis has stated - on camera - that he appreciates LGBT fans. here is the whole video by the way.

louis has a triangle tattoo on his right ankle; a symbol closely associated with gay pride.

he has worn rainbow-themed clothing in the past..

most pointedly a rainbow apple shirt days after apple CEO tim cook came out as gay.

there is footage from the FOUR hangout of liam asking louis about the article i linked.

liam: have you seen it?

louis: no i haven’t seen it yet!

liam: it was good

(which is in direct contrast to what we know as bullshit 2.0)

then there’s this jumper with the “all out” slogan (despite common belief not directly associated with the LGBT charity but the message stands; it sure made me aware of the organisation in the first place)

and this tchaikovsky jumper.. a little history lesson: tchaikovsky was very much gay.

louis (along with harry) was thought to be behind the rainbow bears. there is really so much content to choose from but the strongest links to louis are his reflection in the sunglasses

and louis being spotted across the street from where RBB popped up

he shared some nice comments about steve aoki’s rainbow socks

and most recently louis hung out in amsterdam’s gay district, the reguliersdwarsstraat. spot the rainbow!

not so much a homophobe now, is he?

Awesome set of rainbow stairs spotted in Noosa, Queensland by my best friend who is currently travelling in the southern hemisphere. Missing you buddy, hope you’re having a fantastic time in Oz :)

Half of the prompts are literally already SnowBaz but could you do them for 1?

“Basilton Grimm-Pitch, that is the fifth time I have seen that tree are you sure you know where your going?” Baz gasps, clearly offended.

“Of course I know!” He presses the gas petal a little harder, accelerating them forward. As much as he hated to admit it, Simon was right. He had no idea where we were.

“I knew it we’re lost,” Simon says, resting his arm against the window, looking up at the trees, the sunlight dancing across his face, his bronze curls shimmering in the fading light.

“We are not lost, Snow, I just decided to take the scenic route,” Baz says in a vain attempt to cover up the fact that they were lost in the woods, somewhere in New Jersey with no way out. Going to the U.S. was supposed to be a non-stressful trip with him and Simon hitting all the sights in one long road trip, staring with seeing Penny and Micah again all the way up in New York City and driving all the way to LA to see Agatha. Plus, there was supposed to be a special surprise in between there and Baz would be damned if they missed it.

“There’s that tree again,” Simon says lazily. Baz clenches the steering wheel.

“Snow you can’t just say that every few trees we see. We’re going to get to Virginia if it’s the last thing I do.” Simon sighs.

“Baz how about we just stop at that hotel coming up and pick up in the morning, okay?”

No.”

“Baz–”

“We are making it to Virginia, end of story.” Simon sighs and pulls out his smartphone.

“What are you doing?”

“Getting directions.”

“I. Know. Where. We. Are.”

“No you don’t we’re doing it this way.” He types in the address and the phone starts to give directions, which Simon repeats. After many eye-rolls, Baz just does what he says.

After what feels like forever, finally, finally, they make it to Washington D.C., the last bits of daylight still visible. Just enough time.

Instead of going straight to the hotel, Baz parks the car in a parking deck and drags Simon towards the Washington Monument and the Cherry Blossom trees, still, thank Crowley, in bloom.

“Geeze Baz we don’t need to see it all today we can go tomorrow…” They stop in the middle of the sidewalk, the trees around them on one side and a large body of water with the sun setting over it on the other. Baz runs his hands through his hair, taking a deep breath.

“We can’t do this tomorrow. I don’t know how long the trees will be like this and–” He runs his hands through his hair again and takes Simon’s hands.

“Look, I’m going to admit, this trip wasn’t just about seeing Penny and Agatha–”

“Of course not. It’s our road trip,” Simon says, confused. Baz takes a deep breath, not believing that he’s doing this.

“Yeah yeah yeah. Look I just… when I did this, I wanted it to be someplace different, someplace special. Not just in any old street in London or in our flat. I wanted it to be… special.”

“Okay…?”

“Look Simon I just…” Baz was at a lost for words, which never happened. His hands shaking, Baz let’s go of Simon’s hands to pull something out of his pocket.

“Simon… you’re the best thing that has ever happened to me. I never though–” he gulps– “I never thought I’d live to see the day I do this but…” He takes a deep breath gets down on one knee.

“Simon Snow; every day without you is greater than the curse of being a bloody vampire. I don’t want to spend a moment without you. So will you do me the honour of… becoming my husband?” All the blood inside Baz rushes to his cheeks as Simon stands frozen in shock. He gets down on his knees too, so they’re both at the same height.

“R-really?” he says, tears in his eyes. Baz feels them prickling in his as he nods and doesn’t stop until Simon takes him into his arms and kisses him until his mouth is sore.

The petals of the Cherry Blossom trees fall around them, catching in Baz’s hair and the sun turns the sky pink and purple. Neither could hope for a better moment.

I wish siege was more popular. It has a variety of characters, all with different backgrounds and personalities if you care to look at their bios. I find it similar to Overwatch in a way, except much more fast paced and realistic. I just love the game so much but the fandom is so small.
