why does harry have to ruin everything

Matthew Crawley

Give me a character and I will answer:

I just did MM …but ya know… I gotta do Matthew!

Why I like him: He’s my Matthew. He’s kind, humble, and wears his heart on his sleeve. But he’s also smart, snarky, and hot af. He’s everything.

Why I don’t: He can wallow in his guilt for too long….

Favorite episode: S2 Christmas special. I loved him throughout this episode …especially “Lady Mary Crawley, will you do me the honour of becoming my wife?”

Favorite season: I will say …despite money plot stupidity and Mary’s bitchiness…::and that ending::… S3. I loved Matthew’s growth in this season into his fortune, his station in life, his love for Mary, and his confidence they could make it all work.
Favorite line: I have so many favorite lines. Dan’s delivery of certain lines however rise above the sometimes cliched, cringe worthy, creaky dialogue… “Don’t play with me…” “Oh God Mary I am so so sorry.” “I will love you until the last breath leaves my body.” “Robert the last time you made an investment you nearly ruined the family…” “Then Harry Stoke is a fool…”

“Hello my dearest little chap.”  “Now come and kiss me.”  But I truly love the obscure line right before as well: “Then I”ll get wet.”–it says everything about Matthew. He wants to stay with Mary. Be with her. |

Favorite outfit:

OTP:
Lady Mary Crawley
Brotp: Tom Branson
Head Canon: He secretly longs to whisk Mary away to New York City for a tryst before their wedding… ::so he does:: lol
Unpopular opinion: me agreeing with this statement: “that’s why it’s called an option.” 
A wish: that we could have seen more of MM’s relationship from Lavinia’s death to the Christmas special opening to better understand how they came back together as friends. 
An oh-god-please-don’t-ever-happen::  nothing bad happened… they lived happily ever after in my world.

5 6 words to best describe him: a man who won my heart
My nickname for him: my soulmate

You know one of the reasons why I like Harry is that he does stay in his lane. He is supportive, but he's not running around pretending to be an activist, like a lot of other celebrities do. Then come to find out they are full of shit and everything they are saying, they are not doing or they are just ignorant in other ways.

Exactly! I have had so many celebrities ruined for me just because they go off on these long-winded rants or try to do something they think is noble, and just end up coming off as an asshole, ignorant, or both. Harry is definitely on the high end of overall societal privilege and I think he’s very aware of that. Honestly as a minority I’d much prefer him to show his support in his actions/short statements like the one he made today, rather him being super super vocal about a subject. People may disagree, but I just feel like a lot of the times, unless the celebrity is speaking up for a group of people they themselves identify with (and this is not to start up the whole sexuality discussion again, because I’m not saying that Harry does or doesn’t identify with that group of people), then what they’re saying can sometimes come off as less than genuine, or not coming from the right place. Basically, my ramblings aside, I’m glad that Harry knows how to keep his mouth shut sometimes but still show by his actions and his kindness that he is on our side.

  • What she says: Im fine
  • What she means: How come whenever there's a potential gay character the straights have to come in and ruin it? Why are people acting like Scorose is a thing? Would JK do that to us? Does she really think we want another straight relationship? How come there are absolutely zero lgbt characters in Harry Potter except for Dumbledore who wasn't even gay in the series??? Will scorbus happen? Will we finally get some gay representation??? Or will fuCKING SCOROSE COME IN AND RUIN EVERYTHING????????
Why not Harry?

Alright, hi friend, I have been meaning to write this for weeks but I have been crazy busy with school and what not. And I remember you getting an ask a while back where you posed the question, why isn’t Harry getting any of the slander here? So I, based off of posts I’ve read that I’ll try to link, think that Harry is being protected by his friends. I think around May during the break someone called them the, “Harry Defense Squad” (I just looked for about an hour for the link to the OP of this term/idea and I can’t find it. When I do I’ll send you the link because it’s going to annoy me if I can’t find it. ANYWAYS) So the OP had said during the long break, out of no where: 

Glenne, Jeff, Nick Grimshaw, James Corden, and Louis

were all in LA. Which shouldn’t have seemed like a big deal as 3/5 reside in LA. But, it was extra weird to everyone because Nick had an obligation about 48 hours after he arrived, but it was in London. He seemingly was there for no reason and we were all? (hence my frustration without the OP so i have an accurate timeline). And Louis had been MIA but had appeared seemingly out of no where at the same time as Nick. And it was about a week maybe two after we got the announcement of 78 Productions. It was also about 2 days after we first started getting very very aggressive announcements that Harry is was looking to go solo.

The idea of the “harry defense squad” was that they were all there to protect Harry from having to go solo if he didn’t want to. BUT NOW! I think that they were protecting Harry against what is happening now. 

So a few weeks after HDS showed up in LA we were handed NICK GRIMSHAW WILL BE A JUDGE ON THE X FACTOR. JAMES CORDEN TO DO FIRST ONE DIRECTION INTERVIEW. JEFF AZOFF MANAGED GROUP WILL BE OPENING ACT FOR ONE DIRECTION.“ 

I think all of these things were insurance policies to Sony (Nick/Louis are the only ones that directly helps Simon Cowell but I’ll explain why I believe that in a second) to say “okay we are all willing to do something for you if you keep Harry out of the ensuing mud slinging. Because Harry/Louis/Azoff’s are not stupid. They knew exactly what they were about to do and I think they knew Simon would catch on soon. However, Sony is a MONSTER, and One Direction would be out of their right minds to cross them. So instead, I think that when 1D eventually leaves Syco they’re sliding over to Epic(maybe?)// another branch of Sony that isn’t Syco/Columbia. So they went to Sony and gave them their offers in order to make sure Harry would be protected. In multiple steps: 

1. Before HDS went to Sony to explain how they are basically going to screw over Simon Cowell and ultimately raise hell, they needed to prove that they meant business. So what the best way to show that? Louis promised his BABY(no pun intended), his record label, to Simon. So if Simon isn’t paying attention, he thinks "hey look I have Louis under my thumb for years, they’ll be loyal to me.” It distracts him. While they are able to move on with their other plans and work on distancing themselves in every way other than public, for now. (I also have a theory that Jay is the head of the board specifically so he can maintain a way for his family to profit in the future, but I have no idea how the accounts/contracts are set up. But I have zero doubt in my mind that Louis has ensured his family will always be taken care of. And he’s using 78 Productions to do just that. Anyways). 

2. Step 2 Nick Grimshaw, very very very public best friend to Harry Styles, as well as very very very very very publicly gay male will be the judge on TXF. THIS I think is what I think Sony/HDS handed Simon and said, “no Harry Styles negative press. You don’t drag his name no matter what the circumstances. Harry is a DO NOT touching subject by you.” I think it was presented in a way that was, “Nick is going to be on your show, he is going to make you seem like an LGBT friendly man, so don’t hurt what we’re doing with Harry’s CO process. Please in your heart of hearts Simon sign this and say you will not touch Harry or his name *wink wink we have an Azoff in the room you want to sign this whether you want to or not*”. So now, for about 3 months while babygate is being built, Simon isn’t paying attention to Louis’ partying ways REALLY. He’s kind of looking at Harry/Nick/Louis. What are they doing? Why does HARRY need protection? But hell if he’s going to come out, and I’m going to be positively linked to his best friend for a while, and I am signing one of Nick’s paychecks? Alright fine, this works for me. Whew Simon still thinks he is winning. 

3. Step 3 James will do the first interview. That means Sony, whatever you want us to say, we’ll say it. It will look natural, and it will help everyone involved. Other than the boys being comfortable with James, he helped further the party boy Louis narrative. hell, he basically summed up the fact that, “louis you’ve been partying getting girls you’re single now” whatever. I don’t have a strong opinion on James giving something up as much as he was giving Sony a guaranteed way to get whatever they wanted to across in an interview in a natural looking way. (Let’s not repeat the Four hangout ever again please dear god). 

4. The Honda Civic tour a la, Jeff Azoff. Along with one of his LGBT+ opening act. Based on a few conversations I’ve had with my friend in LA (she’s relatively new to the industry there so I don’t have that much detail) but THCT isn’t something that is easy to achieve just by being a big name. But with his connections Jeff can get them the tour and it will be lucrative for Sony, most importantly. I’m not sure if there were more behind the scene things that Jeff was willing to give up for Harry or for this entire thing, but I believe there was stuff that we’ll never actually see. But I believe that THCT was very much what Jeff offered to protect Harry. 

*I honestly don’t have enough information on Glenne to know what she could have/did offer for Harry, but any woman who is GF to Jeff Azoff isn’t going to just be a side show. She makes herself just a visible with Harry as Jeff himself, I’m watching Glenne but again, I don’t know enough about her to make assumptions*

All in all I think they went to Sony because they knew as soon as Babygate hit, Simon would realize that he had been crossed. And there is no one who can keep a muzzle on Simon, except for Sony. They are the only entity that owns Simon. So with Sony on their side, the boys are able to keep him quiet about Harry. Why Harry? I think it has a lot to do with the fact that one of them needed to not be slandered before the CO. And Louis knew babygate was part of what was going to happen. (other than the fact that Harry has been through a lot, he is smart and he has become a really strong person, so I don’t think just Louis trying to be a white knight is why he decided that he would be the one taking the punches. I honestly think business wise and come out wise, it is so much better to protect Harry) Harry is also the person that needed the most work. He had to go from womanizer to charitable/fashion man in a year more or less. Whereas Louis is the opposite, he’s going from “loved up boyfriend” with basically no other public identity to “I have sex with random women and look I got one pregnant.” (While in the meantime is being charitable as hell also which, is actually genius.) 

I don’t think Simon knew that babygate was coming. I think he reacted too quickly, in a way that was not the narrative, for him to have known that it was coming. I think that’s when he realized that he was being toyed with. I think the fact that he was the first person to come out and say anything about Louis being a father and then PrintInterviewLiam was quick to follow after. I think around that time Simon wanted to say more about any part of One Direction and Sony kicked him with a “don’t even try it Simon”. And that was when he realized he was losing 1D and he was going to do whatever he could to make them pay for that. (Simon’s efforts are also why I believe that babygate isn’t over yet because he is doing everything he can to ruin what NT is doing.) 

I also have a lot to say about Sony and the 5th album and the release date but my brain is currently mush so I’ll send you what I think about that after I actually get a chance to organize my thoughts. 

But anyways, what do you think about this? Do you think it makes sense in the idea of “why is everyone getting bashed but Harry?" 

Hope everything at work has calmed down!!! :) <3


God, darling, thank you so much for this! I always read your thoughts with great pleasure because you never leave anything to chance, always look for reasons behind your theories. That said, I am very open to different opinions, but I can’t imagine Simon not knowing what was coming with babygate. I do share the belief that NT mostly holds the reins here and that Simon’sfirst and sudden comments about babygate were indeed strange, but I’m more prone to believe he was on board from the beginning and found out he was being tricked and dumped some time later. But absolutely agree that Sony holds much more power here and that they seem to be backing the boys up right now and that Simon might be whining and being vengeful and uselessly fight something he doesn’t have a chance to win. I do believe he won’t be able to damage the coming out process and the band’s future that much. He’s more like being an annoying bump on the road. Very annoying.  Interesting point about 78Productions. Was ever there some real chance for that project? Was it a cover to keep Simon happy or was Louis actually planning something with it? Did it die in the rift emerging from the two teams? I am more inclined to believe the second option. I actually think Louis will get something similar soon, connected to some other label, obviously, very likely a Sony one. I like like like the Honda connection with Azoff and always made a good point out of it. And Icona Pop. Nick’s position is very precarious. He’s always been close to Syco, anyway and Simon is making a good use of him right now, as much as enjoys throwing garbage on him. And Nick is even doing a good job in my opinion (you’re always taking a big risk as a talent show mentor).  I see James Corden more as someone who’ll be at the boys’ side once the moment comes and will get other juicy appearances from them at the right time. Any point you’d like to expand on? Have you found the OP? :)

Thank a lot, lot for taking the time to write and send me your thoughts xx

Erin, why does this fandom ruin everything for me? I just want to enjoy Harry and rainbows, but people are being awful and acting like he is hurting Louis or otherwise that Louis doesn't care as much and it makes me sad :((

So, when I came out of the closet I had absolutely no support. This has nothing to do with what you are telling me, but this is why you should celebrate Harry. Also, I have had one meal today and an entire ocean of wine. It has been a long day. So when I came out, I had no support. My relationship ended. My girlfriend was not ready. Some of my friends couldn’t cope. My parents picked sides for a bit.  It was ridiculous, but I was happy. I was really happy and content. I had done it. I had kicked down my own damn closet door and no one stopped me. 

But…there wasn’t a lot of people telling me it was okay? You feel me? So, I was happy, but I had no one to really look towards and say YASS THAT IS ME! Ellen lost her show? Then gained a show, I had her. A few celebrities maybe? I can’t even remember. Anyway, rambling, back to the point–so there was no one really CELEBRATING. 

So! Harry and a rainbow, Harry and rainbows–is IMPORTANT. There are young people all over the world seeing this kid dance and jump and hop around with a rainbow flag. Harry being so chill with a rainbow is showing kids that it is okay. You are LGBTQIA and you should be celebrating! 

The rest of this? Not important. We will get there. Louis is the biggest Harry supporter in all the land. Does Louis deserve this? Yes. Does Louis deserve to be freed? Hella. Does Louis hate rainbows? No. Does this make Louis gay? Before anyone comes at me, no one is defining sexualities here. But he is dating Harry so take that and run with it. Does Louis care? Course he does! He has a big heart! That is his baby!

Do not let anyone or anything take anything away from the fact that this is fucking important. Harry is dancing with a rainbow. 

Snowbaz VS Pottermore

aka i just retook the pottermore test and questioning everything i’ve done in my life i used to be slytherin and now i’m gryffindor

also, idk if anyone’s already done this yet. ik there’ve been hogwarts au/s but i’ve never seen this before? sorry if you already have, no offense was intended

fun fact; i made baz get the same results as me, even the wand oops

BAZ

We’re both sprawled over the couch, Simon and I. I’m currently finishing my French paper and Snow is playing some weird and totally inaccurate wizard game. I would say something about how he’s already got magic and honestly what’s the point in playing virtual games if you can do it in real life? But then I remember that Snow has wings and a tail instead of magic so I keep my mouth shut.

“Baz!” Snow exclaims, his foot nearly kicking me in the face. I ignore him, because he’s probably about to pester me about how his computer is acting up again.

In the corner of my eye, I see him glaring. “Baz! Basilton! Bazzy!” he tries again.

At the mention of ‘Bazzy’, I snap. He knows I hate it when he calls me that and only uses it in times of great emergency. I look up.
