Last year, we sit on a beach and I told you how much I loved you. And how I would always, always protect you. That day nobody believed that this would work. But I don’t think anybody understood the love I had for you. Because if they did, they would have never doubted us. So I wanted to marry you all over again in front of most of our world. Because today, when I look into your eyes, my love for you only grows. It’s even stronger now. My love will never waver. And this I vow to you, today, and always and forever.
Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honour to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
As a closeted LGBT+ individual, I’m upset by Sherlock. I hoped for a beautiful queer love story, I hoped for representation, and most of all, I hoped that our writers hadn’t queerbaited us all.
Tragically, I was let down - we all were. I’m upset that two men (one of whom is openly gay and the other who prides himself on being an ally) would do this. They knew that they were leading us on (“Is cup of tea code?” “I love acronyms…”) and they still did it.
BUT this moment has changed my life. I am currently working towards a career in television, and I vow here and now to make it my mission to get the representation we need and deserve. I’m upset, Mofftiss. But I’m also ready to fight.
I’m going to put a ton of the larrie origin stories from last night/this morning here because legit there are still at least 80 if not more in my inbox. Be warned - this post is super, super long but definitely worth the read imo.
Anonymous said: If we’re allowed to claim Larrie status prior to 1D forming, than I must be one too, because in my wedding, we actually said as part of our ring exchange vows: “Now you are my family, and where we are together, there is my home.” That was in 2000.
@ificouldflybackhome said: My larrie story: i listened to uan and tmh in early january 2013 cause a friend of mine was a fan and then looked up 1d on tumblr and someone mentionned larry and i was like whaaat? So i spent all night readin the ultimate larry masterpost until like 6 in the morning? I didn’t believe it at first but i woke up a full demon larrie and created a 1d larrie blog. I’ve been there ever since haha
@smashingtopieces said: I found this fandom bc I mutual on twitter keep talking about Louis (her fav, and now mine too), and on the day I became a larrie everyone was freaking out bc Harry took Louis to the dentist, and I’m not sure if it was the same day but there were a lot of pictures of Jay and Dan’s wedding on my dash and everyone was happy bc Harry was there and #lottiebelike and Jay was so beautiful and I just made myself sad :(
Anonymous said: I became a larrie when tumblr released their 2015 fandom statistics thing and larry was the #1 ship and I was like ???? why do people even care about those two it’s been 5 years they’re not together get over it? but then I saw, and yeah, common sense, eyes, a brain, all of that jazz and now I’m here :/
Anonymous said: when i joined the fandom (2012) i just thought it was a normal thing to ship larry like i thought every person who liked 1d was a larrie……lmao i didnt even realize until like early 2013
Anonymous said: Larrie who came back around haylor anon again. I also want to add that the reason why I started looking into larry is because of the video diaries mixed with pics of HL in 2011 and bc. of that “until i have a perfect girl” quote harry said in print. I come from a Catholic background and didn’t really have an opinion on the LGBT+ community. But i remember seeing everything with HL and going wow wtf who jokes like this. Now I’m glad to be in this fandom bc. of how much it educated me. (1)
(2) Actually thanks to this fandom (no matter how messed up we are sometimes) I gained a new perspective of what love is and have such a newfound understanding and appreciation for it.
Anonymous said: when i first came into the fandom i was sooooo sure they were straight but i was curious as to why so many people seemed to believe they were in a relationship. so i started reading theories and masterposts and all that jazz. a month later, i was convinced. i’ve been a larrie for nearly 5 years and i haven’t once had doubts

Anonymous said: I’m a graham Norton fan and became a 1D fan after watching the boys on his show end of 2015, and at 40 years old! I thought they were cute and funny, and so adorable with Sir Ian. I started out as a Harrie, then when I started following the boys on tumblr, I became a hard Louie and then a Larrie mid 2016, before thebaby was announced. I think Emma (lads) was one of the big part of my conversion, amongst other Larrie bloggers, with all the informative & fun posts around tumblr.
“12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. 14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.” Psalm 116:12-14 He has done soooo much! Anybody else owe Him? Whenever you feel yourself struggling to give Him what what He wants, remind yourself of ALL His benefits & blessings, decide praise & obedience is the small thing you can offer God to pay Him back, then give Him exactly what He wants! #IoweHim #payGodback
-is now secretary of defense, succeeding nagi and vowing to make him proud
-uses a shield and dual guns, unless pushed to the edge, then they bring out their longsword, sacrificing defense for pure offense
-still gets up to illogical antics, much to the irritation of colleagues
-works to protect indigens from threats as well as humans, believing in coexistence between the two preserving an ecosystem
-is surprisingly harsh and strict, particularly to blades who they find unsatisfactory
-looks like they barely aged a day, much to the irritation of literally everyone
-carries themselves in an orderly fashion, has the hands behind back pose that nagi does
-wears the same outfit as nagi
-still has a habit of using random words in place of others, but less so than before
-drinks black coffee every morning
-when asked why they became secretary of defense they state “i wished to become a protector, someone who preserves the safety of all residents of mira, be they big or small. in the end, though, i suppose i wanted to show everyone how gallant i could be.”
“Pushkin is our everything,” she said. Her hair seemed purple. Her smile Was like golden bracelets encrusted With red and green jewels. It was not At all like that. Pushkin was about to Tip his hat towards us. He was looking Our way, and that is why he did not see That the duel had begun. Blood stains My memories now. I was trying to vow To be a poet like him. She was trying to Show me her wedding ring. I was Indifferent to matters of such mediocrity. I wanted only poetry like life itself and knew That I could only ever read or write such Wonders if she would admit me. I am hers. She is like everything, only less uncertain.
If you missed my yearly retrospective, I made a vow to do daily, weekly and monthly art for 2017. Anyone that did see that in my retrospective probably rolled their eyes and thought “yea right”, and probably felt justified since I haven’t done anything for 2 whole weeks.
WELL JOKES ON YOU! I was just super busy in real life for those 2 weeks and haven’t had the time to do anything. But now that’s all cleared up and my vow starts NOW!
I’ll be aiming to do one sketch like this daily, at least. Maybe one more complex art a week(I dunno, a “watercolor” or something?), and maybe an even more complex one monthly(???). As I said in my retrospective, I don’t expect I’ll adhere to this schedule 100%, but I’ll do my best. Maybe skipping weeklies and monthlies here and there.

dsha2127, Told you I’d do it. Because this is my new thing. And that fic is just too good not to demand you to read it :3
