Like, I’m not even a Larry shipper, but I’m at this super sad part of that fifty bajillion word long Larry+Ziam fic that everyone is reading and so this is actually PAINFUL right now because like UGH YOU IDIOTS. I think I get why everyone and their mom ships Harry and Louis now :|
well this is some of the birthday trends
…Wait, I don’t get that last one. Like, is there some sort of Larry thing I’m missing, because it seems like a pointless thing to trend on his twenty-first birthday. The rest though….UGH STOP NOT CUTE.
So I drew this picture of the boys to put up as a fan sign at 1D World in NYC, since when I visited again a couple days ago, I saw a lot of people putting up signs, and what I had written had been covered up since I was there on opening day. I figured since my original signature had been a quick drawing, I’d do another one, only better since I had more time and could actually sketch it out on paper and all. Hopefully it won’t get covered this time!
Also yes I did have to but my Ziam shipping in there a little bit okay. Just be happy I didn’t draw some sort of reference to Nick on Harry.
So I was walking past 1D World today, as I get into the city through Penn Station, and since I put this picture near a window, I decided to just poke my head in and see if it’s gotten commentary as has happened before. I actually have the previous version hung up in my studio since it has so many nice comments on it. Anyways, I look in and see a heart around Liam and Zayn’s heads that say Ziam next to it. I was going for a Ziam thing since they are my OTP and I thought it cute that someone noticed that. I also see a hear around Harry and Niall’s head only instead of saying Narry, it says…Larry.
As in, they thought Niall was Louis.
Okay, even if I hadn’t gotten the facial likenesses (which I think I did), HE’S THE ONLY ONE WHOSE HAIR I DIDN’T SHADE IN (this is waaaaaaay more obvious in the printed version, btw). HE HAS BRACES. THERE IS A SHAMROCK ON HIS SWEATPANTS HOW IS THIS NOT OBVIOUSLY NIALL. I even gave Louis his quiff and stick figure tattoo
and sexy hips, I made sure it was fucking obvious who was who. THEY HAD EVEN WRITTEN “NIALL” NEXT TO LOUIS LIKE IDEK.
I had purposefully made it Narry, because that’s my second favorite inter-band pairing and because I didn’t want to put Larry in there because a lot of the Larry stuff written on the walls of 1D World is really cray and I don’t want to be accostiated with that. I know it’s a small thing, but it did bug me, so I went back when I was on my way home and wrote that it was meant to be Niall and that I love Ziam and Narry, and though I do think this may have been overkill on my part, changed the L in Larry to an N.
I don’t know why it annoys me so much that Niall was assumed to be Louis. It wasn’t like they insulted the drawing- I assume they probably liked it, if they commented on it. I’m going to put up a fresh copy on Wednesday when I’m there again, I’ve decided. IDK, I’m just not into Larry and I think it’s kind of insulting that my drawing was hijacked by a ship that I’m not part of and find many of the shippers of it really annoying. I know tons of awesome Larry shippers, but the loudest section really freak me out. Like, if there had been Nouis or Lirry hearts, I would’ve found it adorable and taken it as a compliment even though I’m not into either ship, but Larry…is Larry and I don’t want to be associated with that, I guess. No offense if you do ship Larry in a sane, fourth-wall/girlfriend-respecting way, this is not about you, more about my own feelings towards this fandom.
Wow, this is quite long for something that was just meant to be a small story. IDK, I just have a lot of feelings xD I am really, really appreciative of the nice comments I’ve gotten about this drawing though, both at the store and on Tumblr, so thank you :3
let’s talk about how gr8 harry/louis is
#i’m literally just sitting here sobbing #they’re best friends!!! #and like nothing can take that away from them #because that’s what best friends are they’re there for one another no matter what #and they love each other and they mess with each other #and they love each other #and that’s what friendship is #it’s finding someone who fits you perfectly #and you can fight with them and yell at them #but it doesn’t matter because you’re best friends #and you know you’ll always sort it out #and that’s what harry and louis are they’re best friends!!! #they just have that unshakable unbreakable bond #that familiar feeling between them where it feels like you’ve known someone for centuries #like they’re just #a part of you #and you love them so wholely and immensely that there isn’t anything you can do about it #all you can do is love them #until forever #and there’s nothing anyone can do to change that #and that’s what harry and louis have #BEST FRIENDS I CAN’T
Pretty much my Larry feels, tbh. I don’t ship them romantically, partially because of the fandom, partially because I only used to really ship them as a background pairing to Ziam anyways, and partially because Nick Grimshaw exists, but I am in love with their friendship. Like, how I see them in the beginning, Harry didn’t really have any super close friends from home like the rest of the boys did, so Louis took him under his arm and made sure that Harry had someone, AND I CANNOT EVEN DEAL WITH THAT. Louis cares deeply about all of the boys, but it’s Harry that he seems to get on with best, and they are just really precious together.
Above any ships, what I love most about One Direction is the friendship between all five of them, how they were pushed into this amazing yet completely bizarre situation and became super close from it, in a way that can only happen from such an occurrence. Not to say that their other close relationships are lacking or not as intimate as the ones they have with each other, just that it is a different sort of thing that happens when becoming a team like they had to. Just seeing Harry and Louis being best friends…it doesn’t just give me Larry feels, but OT5 feels as well, and I don’t think I am explaining it well. But, just…booooooooooooooooys ;_________;
Tumblr people make an appearance at 1D World.
That “Ziam is love” was written by me, negl. I also wrote “Gryles is real”* somewhere nearby.
(* Disclaimer: I know that Harry and Nick are most likely not actually dating and fan fiction is fiction, but I chose that wording to express my Gryles love to parody the Larry shippers.)

butthey ARE HOLDING HANDS
im so what i what
GUYS BOYBANDERS ARE SO CLOSE TO NOT HIDE A SECRET ANYMORE WAESGRDHTRYTHEW4T
EXCUSE ME WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS OH MY GOD
Lmao at the fact that you Larry shippers don’t realize this is NICK and Harry hahahahaha
TBH I’m not sure that’s Nick. Nick doesn’t dress like that, and the guy seems shorter than Harry, while Nick is a couple inches taller. That’s definitely not Louis either, though. Harry has a ~mystery boyfriend~
Ziam and Larry Parallels ~ Part 7
@louis_tomlinson #asklouis Who are you closest too in one direction? Harry
@zaynmalik #askzayn who are you closest to in the band? Liam Payne
What are those second pictures from? I don’t think either of them would write such things, but as a Ziam shipper (and sometimes Larry one
tho stymshaw for life lbr) I’d love to be proven wrong! Though, shouldn’t they be switched as well so that there is a clear Larry column and a clear Ziam one?
Though, okay OMG LOOK AT HOW CUTE ZAYN AND LIAM ARE TOGETHER. ALSO I MISS WHEN LIAM’S HAIR WAS LIKE IN THE FIRST GIF HIS NEW STYLE IS NAGL. AND HARRY AND LOUIS ARE PRETTY CUTE TOO NEGL :3
