Anyways I just wanna bring up that they were talking about Cheryl and Liam on Graham Norton and Graham was saying that “we have a clip of the first time you met” which was Liam’s very first XFactor audition when he was FOURTEEN (and she was 24!!!) and Liam pretty much said “she doesn’t like talking about that” which means that she’s aware of how creepy it is and she doesn’t want people remembering that she had a whole adult/child relationship with Liam wherein she mentored him but knew he was a kid and she treated him as a kid. And to have a perception of someone like that for like eight or nine years, to still think of them as someone 10 years (!!!) younger than you and to have a ‘they’re a child’ mentality of them right until they become of age/legal, is pretty much the definition of predatory behavior to me. I don’t know how she can look at Liam and not see the 14-year-old she mentored when she was then pretty much how old he is now. Any memories they look back on from him on the XFactor early on can’t and shouldn’t be labeled as 'cute’ or 'romantic’ because Liam was a CHILD. And she knows this, since she doesn’t want people talking about them at that stage, but she still agreed to this relationship when she also knew it wasn’t okay. And that’s my issue with their relationship.
So let me get this straight… they posted on Twitter, Tumblr, IG, IG Stories, had a Spotify pre-save link, and all of the other links worked? Then they actually pinned the tweet on Twitter. And on top of all of that, he’s promo-ing his appearance ahead of time?
oh my god the first time harry and louis spooned:
• squeezed impossibly close together in an xfactor bunk, giggling silently so as not to wake anyone
• a shy kiss goodnight, followed by another few kisses goodnight
• harry says he should probably get back to his own bunk
• and louis doesn’t want him to leave so he says, “stay”
• and harry blushes bright red and then whispers that he can’t like, “there’s no room lou how are we supposed to sleep”
• but louis is having none of it and literally begs him to stay (although it doesn’t take much begging at all because harry doesn’t want to go either)
• and so they try to go to sleep all squished together, and it gets not-fun hot really fast and they kick off the blankets and wriggle around trying to get comfortable
• they’re both huffing and maybe just a little considering giving up and then…harry turns onto his side to tug at the blankets some more and louis turns to ask him what’s up…and then:
• they’re spooning. and louis’ arm is slung over harry’s waist, and harry’s shoulders are tucked against louis’ chest and they can hear each other’s breaths.
• and they fit and it’s still just this side of too snug because it’s a tiny fucking bunk but it’s okay because they can lace fingers and fall asleep and that’s that
• in the morning, they wake up in virtually the same way and they’re a bit cramped and stiff but neither of them care
• one of the boys sees them and snorts and says, “harry you’re a little spoon?”
• and harry says “i’m louis’ little spoon” and cranes his neck to give louis an off center kiss and louis smiles and says “and i’m harry’s big spoon”
do you know how horrible it would’ve been for louis and harry if they didnt have larries ? like i dont think people truly understand how important this fandom is, larries have been rooting for them since xfactor !!! imagine how they felt the first time they saw us bringing rainbow flags to concerts ? imagine the first time they read, “i support you nomatter what” signs ? imagine the first time they saw “louis and harry are such a cute couple im so happy for them” tweets ? imagine how happy they would be when we figured out their little rbb riddles ? imagine the relief they must feel when they creep and see us not believing anything cause we think better of them ? two boys who were probably told they would be hated by fans if they were to be themselves only to have a huge separate fanbase supporting them nomatter what pleaseeeeee we are gonna be iconic one day, when they tell louis and harrys story in the future they are gonna talk about us and how stubborn we were lol
Is the next weekend gonna be the weekend Simon miraculously comes back to the XFactor just in time for Harry’s performance? Also the lengths they would go to keep the scandal under wraps by trying to shift the focus on Harry is utterly disgusting.
Another reason that solo Harry is a big deal is because this is what young Harry styles dreamt of when he auditioned for Xfactor. Indeed he got his time with the band and he was fully dedicated to it and no one can erase that, but this…him wanting to do this on his own is how he started to dream.
Now he’s finally gonna live his dream of creating his own music and expressing himself the way he wants to, the way he always wanted to. Can you imagine how huge this would be for him? and the fact that he’s getting such a good response and buzz already is making me so …. emotional. Like our boy deserves it and he deserves all the appreciation and encouragement in the world.
He’s starting a new chapter in his career and he’s gonna need all the love, support and enthusiasm from his fans, so remember to not leave a stone unturned in appreciating this boy you’ve been a fan of over the years because now’s the time to properly show how much we love him, when he’s going for this journey on his own, no haters are gonna get in the way ❤
