i'm not excited for it and it's making me feel so bad
Here’s the thing: I’m sure Harry’s music will be amazing, whatever the genre is, and yet I feel split in two the way I am when Louis does something and it’s tainted by things that happen alongside his career - like stunts. Half of me is yayy the other is absolutely PISSED about how everything’s tainted by specific media narratives, including the one according to which Harry is a distant megastar who loathes his bandmates and is above it all, so above it all that he can drop an entire album in complete silence and doesn’t even need to comment on anything, which we know for a fact is bullshit.
@violetjersey that’s a lovely one! Should preface this by saying I’m not much more knowledgeable about the solar system than Sherlock is though…eh, I’ll make it work lol! Ok here goes…
Sherlock gazed to his right, mesmerized by the way her lips moved rapidly and eyes shone as she explained the particulars of the way the planets moved around the…the sun? Well, it didn’t matter much. Her mouth slowed a bit so he quickly stepped in again with a prompt.
“And what about that one?” he asked softly, pointing upward so she could follow his gaze.
“Oh right, that’s Pluto.” She smiled at him and laughed as she went on. “You see, some years ago a controversy began when…”
Sherlock fell back into his trance of watching her rattle off every bit of information she could offer. After a few moments, he reached over and threaded their fingers together, which made her stop short and give him a shy smile.
“Go on,” he whispered. “I’m listening.”
What Molly didn’t quite realize yet was that Sherlock was listening to something far deeper than facts about the solar system. In this peaceful setting, he could finally hear the truth which had been hidden away for so long. All of a sudden…it was deafeningly clear.
