2/2 meant by saying they’re already together, so Harry would be like “Yeah, we’ve been together for a while, I just forget sometimes.” To keep in theme with them “joking”, only for one of the other boys to be like “We can’t forget! They’re attached at the hip, these two!” I just always picture them not making it a huge deal, because that to me transfers over easier. Starting with a ‘rip the bandaid’ approach one night, and letting it spread as “breaking news” throughout the next day.
Listen I can talk about coming out until the cows come home and I love cute headcanons! BUT THESE WON’T WORK. If it were simpler these cute playful ways would work, but it’s not simple AT ALL.
Louis can literally say ‘WE’RE BLAZING UP SMOKING WEED MARIJUANA LOL THIS IS ILLEGAL WE’RE IN PERU SMOKING WEED I LOVE WEED CHICKEN IN CHILE WEED WEED WEED’ and people still reach so fucking hard to say ‘I don’t think it’s really weed.’ The denial game in that crowd is strong. The guys will have a sense of humor about it, like everything else, but their coming out is going to be strong and clear as day and unfuckingquestionable out of sheer necessity.
Their relationship is SERIOUS, and they’re obviously proud of it, and a coming out is serious, and if they don’t treat it as such I’ll really be surprised. They’re easing us in but when it happens it’s going to be everywhere, ‘WE’RE HERE WE’VE BEEN HERE WE’VE BEEN QUEER WE’RE STILL QUEER VERY QUEER DEFINITELY FUCKING VERY SERIOUS COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP MARRIAGE AND BABIES AND QUEER GAY GAY GAY HOMOSEXUAL WE’RE VERSATILE WE SAID IT 4 FUCKING YEARS AGO QUIT FIGHTING OVER WHO TOPS/BOTTOMS IT DOESN’T FUCKING MATTER WE BOTH LOVE TO BE FUCKED.’
There will be interviews and tons of print articles. People are going to be in denial, and they will be shown the images and the videos and read the media until it sinks in and they can reach their acceptance stage of grieving.
TL;DR: They absolutely can’t fuck around with these turds, it’s going to be clearly, firmly, and proudly stated.
