When you get online and see everyone freaking out but you don’t know why yet
anon who asked me about no judgment and it being about harry, i’m sorry but i answered you and then tumblr fucked me over and deleted it all… so your ask is gone but here is the content still !!!! bc i started it and now i can’t let it go until i’ve recreated and posted it
but yes. i am an absolute slut for the theory that no judgment is about harry, and it definitely might as well be about anyone else but let’s just indulge the theory shall we??
yes this is a shitpost don’t take anything seriously i’m drinking mimosas as i compile this dumpster fire
first of all, this:
in that whole first mv niall is not involved in the relationship: he’s observing two people who have been in love for so long there’s no shame anymore. it’s awesome
and also kinda gross to watch at moments but maybe i’m just queasy but i’m sorry if i don’t want to see scampi between an old person’s toes for them to then be eaten by their partner
but hey what’s that ?
the SECOND MV IS WHERE IT HIT ME IN THE CHEST
we have this kid from tiktok
with a mop of hair that is just so fucking familiarwho is a magically gifted little dancer, playing with his sister in his parent’s closet, trying on all of their clothes, not sticking to any fashion rules. the kid wears a dress, necklaces, heels, etc. and they’re clearly having the time of their lives together.
genuinely that mv is beautiful. that family is wholesome, those kids are thriving and happy, they’re surrounded with love and giving your kids that message is so fantastic i’m cry. and add on the stories told by harry about how he used to love playing dress-up …..
“My mum loved to dress us up,” she (Gemma) remembers. “I always hated it, and Harry was always quite into it. She did some really elaborate papier-mâché outfits: She made a giant mug and then painted an atlas on it, and that was Harry being ‘The World Cup.’ Harry also had a little dalmatian-dog outfit,” she adds, “a hand-me-down from our closest family friends. He would just spend an inordinate amount of time wearing that outfit. But then Mum dressed me up as Cruella de Vil. She was always looking for any opportunity!”
“As a kid I definitely liked fancy dress,” Styles says. There were school plays, the first of which cast him as Barney, a church mouse. “I was really young, and I wore tights for that,” he recalls. “I remember it was crazy to me that I was wearing a pair of tights. And that was maybe where it all kicked off!” - Vogue Dec 2020
then, about this exact context, niall was asked his opinion on harry’s fashion choices and said:
“Very fashionable young man. And he doesn’t care, which is great. No judgment.”
there also was this tweet by niall’s management’s (we won’t mention their name) golf twitter page (??)
and last but not least
we will look at the lyrics.
yk, this world is full of judgment and ppl are harsh to each other all the time, but this “you” really seems to get put through the wringer tho. how and why is literally anyone else judging them all the time? why is it implied they have to prove themselves? why can’t they just be themselves everywhere?
anyways, niall is there to be their comfort zone <3
this is exactly like every good long-term friendship: you don’t always stay in touch, you don’t always see each other, but then when you do, it’s like the last time was yesterday and nothing changed at all and you just pick up where you left off
and this post makes it very nicely clear that niall and harry have that kind of friendship too. we know they stay in touch, even though it’s nothing compared to how often they saw each other in the band, but that foundation of love will always be there
here’s the infamous “lover” - of course this can be used to talk about your love, a romantic relationship, etc. that’s not the general feeling this song gives me, though, bc of how casual their relationship is depicted. if “you” needs him, they’ll come over, and it’ll be a lot of fun, but then there can be months that go by without them seeing one another. they can stay over, they can leave without a word, anything. doesn’t sound like the healthiest romantic relationship if that’s what it’s about, unless it’s a fun friends w benefits situation, but yeah so all of that so say i think it’s more about friendship and before anyone tries to say sth like “oh come on lover for a friend??” i’ll say i treat my best friends like my lovers and i talk to them like we’re in long-term relationships and tbh a relationship exactly like is sung about here by niall, involving extreme familiarity and space to be yourself and no pressure at all to be or do anything
they have their own lives, they’re going down their own path in life, but they’ll always meet again
secrets, the outside world not allowed to know who they really are…
honestly, this is just such a sweet song.
no matter who it’s about, i love the sentiment: here with me, love, you can be whoever you want to be and i’ll never judge you for that; this is your comfort zone and you can take whatever you need.
imo it can be about any of the 1d boys, and i say 1d specifically bc of the scrutiny the person niall’s singing to clearly has to undergo all the time, like every single member of the band, every day of their lives. they’ve all struggled with that, with being able to be themselves without judgment.
so, why i’m pushed to think of harry when this song plays, on top of all the blatant parallels i can see
and who knows maybe i’m imagining them but whatever it’s nice on this side of lifeis bc harry, to me, is someone who can present as confident but is essentially incredibly shy and seems to need this kind of confidence boost once in a while. thinking about perfect now yes i am. he’s a big weirdo and those close to him love him to pieces and clearly also feel the need to defend and protect him when necessary. this isn’t louis, who speaks up and fights his own battles, but someone who’d almost get trampled by the world bc he’d let himself get trampled and then say thanks. so then his friends and lover are there to make sure he’s okay, happy and thriving, dancing his cute little ass off
happy narry breakdown besties <3
Please take all your rainbows, your flags and all your pride to Harry and Louis’ shows, it should not be taken as granted or as a decorations or an aesthetic, they’re fucking important for them, for you and for us and for everybody else who needs that reminder that they fucking matter and they should be celebrated. There is nothing as “too much gay”, there is nothing such as “what if it makes them uncomfortable” , fuck that and fuck you if you believe that and ding ding!! Real world reminder that people are still unable to be themselves, people still not safe for being queer, people who have to compromise everything and lose everything in order to be who they are and YES unfortunately people still get jailed and murder for being queer and you tell me no fucking pride flags?? No rainbows??
It takes a lot of Hope not only courage to wave the first flag, it takes a lot of hope to go to their show despite and despite and wave them rainbows and celebrate them and celebrate yourself and celebrate those who are not able to be celebrated!! To those who can only be themselves in the stillness of their lonely rooms and forever hiding! These flags reminds them that they exist!! To those who lost themselves can only be found by others like them!! Hatred can only be overcomed by your Hope and courage! Please dont hide your pride 🏳️🌈
stan twitter introduced to concept of reading
it’s really the same dumb fk
I am baffled how this person that put Brazil on China and the Philippines in Chile got the country of Chad 100% correct.
fell for the oldest trick in the book
I like that all of Scandinavia is labeled as “France???”
anyone else fucking endeared to death by this fraction of a moment given to us by x factor, showing these boys indulging louis and his antics already/once again, patiently waiting in silence for niall to be done tracing an awful smiley on the lid of a bin, then all turning to the camera to give a nice lil review of that week’s performance? cause i sure am i even made a gif
