Do you think the backstage photo from nashville was seeding for the coming out like some people are saying, or just they happened to be seen?

His curls or his smell Answer:


I think that if they weren’t meant to be seen, they wouldn’t have walked in front of a clearly visible crowd of fans with their arms around each other’s waists, and they definitely wouldn’t have continued walking like a couple once those fans started screaming. And, sorry to say, but I think people who take that as a fluke or as an accidental slip-up are incredibly naive to how these things really work.

From what I can see, they’ve been seeding it for much longer than just that photo in Nashville. People have pointed things out to me in the past few weeks, things that have happened over this year so far, and it goes way further back. Headlines linking their names, them disappearing together for days or weeks at a time, being seen together in small ways over the last several months. It’s kicked up recently, but it’s not new. That’s the point of seeding something — Once things kick up, people are already subconsciously expecting it, because you’ve been giving them small doses of it over time.

(Now, this is about to go a bit beyond the scope of your original question, so I’m putting it under a cut.)

I don't get why you think that modest would separate harry and louis so thoroughly but then let harry tweet lyrics that imply he's gay? how does that make sense?

His curls or his smell Answer:


First off, I don’t understand why everyone thinks this situation is so simple, that it’s black or white. That management either have complete control over the situation, or have no impact at all. It isn’t that simple. 

In my opinion, something that is ambiguous at best (ie the lyric tweets) isn’t worth crying over and moving heaven and earth to stop from happening, especially when only a small portion of the fandom picks up on it to begin with. In order to stop the tweets, they’d have to either delete them quickly after Harry tweeted them, which would only look more suspicious, and/or they’d have to revoke Harry’s access to his own twitter account, which would probably have a greater negative impact on the situation from modest’s perspective and create more problems than it’s worth.

As for the separation… it really isn’t that thorough. I think people underestimate how easy it is to shape a public perception. I’ll give you an example.

At my day camp this summer, there were two staff members that were dating, and I didn’t find out about it until the last week when they told everyone. Only 3 other staff members (among 30 or so) knew throughout the summer. These are people that I spend 40-60 hours with per week, and I had no idea. Granted, I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention, I wasn’t looking for it, just like a large portion of the 1D fandom isn’t looking for Harry and Louis to be together.

Anyway, they got away with it because they didn’t act like a couple at camp or at our staff socials. They didn’t hold hands or cuddle or even talk that much. Looking back on it, I can see what I missed but at the time it didn’t even cross my mind. The people who knew kept their mouths shut and voila. 

Obviously that story is a very dumbed down example, it would be significantly more complex to hide a relationship among famous people, but don’t kid yourself into thinking it can’t be done.

A half hour appearance at a coffee shop alone, the other walking out the front doors of a hotel, mild if any interaction at work. We only really see maybe 5-10 percent of their lives. If that 5-10 percent is marketed and shaped in a particular way, selling a narrative isn’t hard. 

Only seeing 5-10% doesn’t mean we know what goes on the other 90 or so percent, it doesn’t prove anything one way or the other. But you’re a fool if you think it’s impossible that they are hiding something.

I actually pointed out to my friend that harry and louis never really interacted with each other during the concert and she told me she didn't even realize it until I pointed it out so this is all very true we only see it because we're looking for it larry stylinson one direction
