Louis Tomlinson is quoted as saying that Harry Styles is a good boyfriend. And it’s like, he should know from personal experience, right? Badum bum, cymbal noise. Oh no I di-in’t! Before you link to your slash fic in the comments, let’s look at the quote in question, which to be fair is about all the One Direction boys. Suuure, a likely story. This is what Louis told The Sun about him and his bandmates:
“I think we are actually all pretty good boyfriends. We’re definitely romantic.”
What’s that sound you hear in the distance? That’s the sound of Larry Stylinson shippers everywhere screaming, passing out, coming to, and then screaming again. In case you’re just a casual Directioner, the kind that merely rocks out to “What Makes You Beautiful” while you’re in traffic and heard through the grapevine that Harry and Kendall Jenner were dating or something (RIP Hendall), let me explain. Larry Stylinson is the couples name for Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, a pairing that a lot of Directioners are convinced is real. In short, they think Harry and Louis are totes gay for each other.
I mean, sure Louis has said it’s a delicious combo of baloney and malarkey and poppycock. And sure Louis has been dating his girlfriend Eleanor Calder for two years. And sure Harry has been
fake dating lady after lady over the years. But there’s nothing more fun than a conspiracy theory, am I right? Plus, Larry Stylinson is probably the greatest couples name in the history of couples names. TomKat was pretty clever, I won’t lie, but this one actually creates an entirely new person, to the point where I’m pretty sure a lot of people see the name and wonder which member of 1D is Larry. Is he the one with the hair or the one with the other hair?
As long as you’re adding the above quote to your dream board next to that Photoshopped image of Harry and Louis kissing, you might as well add this one too. Just ignore the part where he says “girlfriends”:
“When we actually get to be with our girlfriends, we just want to do the normal stuff we never get to do, like watching crap TV together and staying in.”
Aw, Louis, forget Larry Stylinson. Get with me and be Lill O’Tomlinson. We could double as a rap act and get into trouble with Justin Bieber.
