do you ever stay in the shower for so long you forget who you are
I started a journal last year right before the first time I saw the boys and I’ve been filling it with poems and my stories and pictures of my whole story and all to give to whoever I felt needed it when I finished, and it got to the end of the journal this week, a year after my first concert, and onto my second show now and coming full circle and all, and I’ve been meaning to give it to harry this week and say “I figure you get lonely while on tour and when i was alone I had you so when you’re alone you can have me” but I never got to meet him so I just wrote that on a paper from my hotel room with a “thank you so much” at the bottom and just now at the concert I was sitting right by the catwalk so I got Harry’s attention and showed him my journal and he said to throw it so I did and he caught it and flipped it and smiled at all the writings and pictures and told me he’d read it after the show and told me thank you and just do you know what it’s like to hear your hero tell you thank you when you just gave them a novel on how you became so thankful for them it’s indescribable and I can’t believe he’s holding my story in his hands
remember when 1d performed through the dark on snl and we had a quick bright flash of What Could Have Been
When stuff like this happens you need to watch it at least 10 times. 8 times for Harry and Louis and then twice more for the people around them. LIAM’S FACE I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
So Liam sees Louis going back and forth trying to pick a side to go on
He’s still singing. While looking stressed and confused
Then he just. ??????? And he kind of actually stops singing for a minute
HARRY’S SMIRK I’M IN TEARS.
Harry and Louis constantly making Liam’s life difficult
Oh, I just don’t think he’s as keen to come out as Harry is, and sometimes I even think he would rather people thought he was straight than anything otherwise. I think it’s probably cos he’s changed himself so much in the last couple of years that makes me think that because to me that implies he’s not longer comfortable with being seen as camp/gay but I won’t pretend to have a direct line to his psyche, haha. :)
I don’t want to be the crazy Louis blog, but y’all are making me that way lately.
It’s one thing not to think Harry & Louis were/are together. I don’t understand that, but I’m not here to talk about that right now.
I want to talk about some people in this fandom who want to recognize that Harry and Louis may be very likely identify as LBGTQI*, want to hold Harry up as a bastion of all things happy, defiant and PRIDE-ful, but at the same time, want to keep Louis buried in the back of the closet by implying he is a coward.
Harry & Louis are, by all indications, closeted as individuals (and a couple). But they are closeted very differently. They are marketed VERY differently. This is intentional. This is not their choice. They can’t react to the same things in the same way. They wouldn’t even if they weren’t this closeted because individualism is a thing that exists.
To say that Louis has changed and no longer wants to come out because he is not acting how he did in 2011/2012 (read: in a stereotypically effiminate or “gay” way) all the time on camera in the 20% of the time we see him, is spectacularly shallow and lacks any kind of reasoning skills at all.
Louis and Harry aren’t the same person. They aren’t a single gay unit. They aren’t in the same closet. We don’t know why they aren’t coming out. I, and about 382934234 of us, can postulate all day long about why that is and come up with 3-5 good, plausible reasons.
But “Louis changed too much and doesn’t want to come out now” isn’t even in the logical ball park.
Can we all stop taking the homophobic, acerbic @Louis_Tomlinson image we’ve had force-fed down our throats and twisting him into some version of a person who fits the theory he’s gay but holding Harry back. Or gay but too scared to come out. Or “gay but…” anything, because we just don’t know.

Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Alternate Universe - Yoga, Alternate Universe - Football, louis plays football and is a beast when injured, niall and liam are his teammates and can attest to that, hence the yoga thing, to help louis relax, only there is nothing relaxing about the yoga instructor, I think that’s about it, harry and louis ramble around london a lot, there’s a teeny tiny bit of one-sided harry/zach braff in there too, some zayn/perrie and niall/barbara in the background
AU. It’s possible — possible — that his three-week ban from the football pitch makes Louis just a tad antsy. Surely it’s not so bad that it warrants punishment in the form of his friends signing him up for a yoga class? Either way, Louis is determined to hate every second of it.
He didn’t count on a yoga instructor who wears flower-patterned headscarves and smiles like summer won’t end.
