but of course it was a pick up line! i thought it was implied? honestly, i've always thought louis was totally hitting on him with the 'you're gonna be famous' story! that approach wasn't platonic at all -remember how louis always says that, when you like someone, you just have to go for it? that's exactly what he did with harry. no doubt in my mind louis was attracted to harry the first second he saw him. he just waited for the right opportunity to approach him, that clever bastard.
