Why are you questioning Harry and Louis being together?
because 2016 and 2017 happened and nothing is the way we ever thought it’d be back in 2015 so it’s only natural to question the current state of affairs behind the scenes.
because i’m not privy to the reality of their private lives right now and if 2016 has taught me anything it’s that we never actually know what’s really going on if we’re not meant to know.
because all of the ‘inside information’ this fandom does get comes from stalkers (who are being used by the boys and their teams to get out a certain message or idea), cyber stalkers (same deal - if anyone thinks louis doesn’t know that people in this fandom have access to his flight info …), or a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend-who-works-for-[insert media outlet here] heard such-and-such was going to happen but then such and such never actually happens.
because i’m not louis, i’m not harry, and i’m not a close personal friend or family member to either of them and therefore have no clue what is actually happening behind closed doors. all i have in front of me is some very limited, very skewed information that i have to try to assemble in a way that makes sense to me.
because i have my own brain and my own eyes and contrary to how some people want this fandom to operate, i don’t just believe something because everyone else does. i don’t want them to be broken up and i hope they are still able to be there for each other in private and but like … a break up at some point in the past few months to a year is a possibility.
i think that, at this stage in the game, any of us acting like we KNOW anything about the current state of their relationship for certain requires a kind of hubris that i just don’t have.
i’ve said this since i came back to this blog but the state of their relationship is fairly irrelevant to me right now when louis is being neglected by his team and not given the support he deserves. his wellbeing and his career are honest to God the only reason i’m still here and the core focus of this blog atm.
