J&R Signing - 12 March 2012 - “Where do you want to sit?”
In working on my March 2012 timeline, I watched this video a lot. “A lot.” It’s always been a little confusing to me, because I thought Harry’s reaction to “You cant’ sit together” was 1) really out of character insomuch as it was pretty dismissive for this polite boy and, most importantly, 2) they still sat together.
Here’s what happened:
Harry [to Louis]: Where do you want to sit?
Louis [to Harry]: Next to you.
Harry [to someone off camera]: Which way are they [the fans] coming from? This end? [Harry gestures to the end of the table behind him and person confirms] Ok.
The “You can’t sit (stand?) together” was said off camera, perhaps to some fans who were blocking an aisle, and not directed at Harry.
So, let me tell you why this is so significant to me.
Harry asked Louis “Where do you want to sit?” to which Louis said “Next to you.” Louis was taking Harry’s question literally, which is pretty cute because NEXT TO YOU. But Harry didn’t mean “Louis, where do you want to sit?” He was asking “Where are we going to sit?” Which is one of the more significant and obvious things he’s ever said to indicate he thinks of him and Louis as a package deal.
This was a standard and traditional couple’s question. Think of a couple on a date at a movie theater. They walk in, one asks the other “Where do you want to sit?” At a dinner party with friends, it’s the same thing.
Harry was asking his boyfriend where they were going to sit.
That brings me to Harry asking from which direction the fans would be filing past them. Let me share my theory with you.Harry has been described as task-oriented and, in my opinion, is a conciliatory and strategic person by nature. Perhaps not as strategic as Louis, especially at this time, but smart enough to play the game to his greatest benefit, which would be to sit next to Louis.
Given the time period, in which things were growing more tense surrounding Harry and Louis and the nature of their relationship, I think Harry was trying to win (sit next to Louis) through appeasement (doing so in such a way as to draw the least amount of negative attention from their handlers).
They had done numerous signings up until this point, including several in the days leading up to and after this particular signing. In most signings, Harry and Louis sat next to each other (duh). But it was often in the middle or on the end, which created a bottleneck effect of fans due to the Harry & Louis Bubble Effect. They would get too into each other, too cocooned in their own world. Think Virgin Signing in France a month before this with the cute lamp shade stuff.
I think it’s possible Harry asked where the fans were coming from and chose the beginning of the line because he and Louis would still get to sit together, but with a constant moving stream of people, would be less likely to draw attention to their inevitable interaction.
In conclusion, Harry asked his boyfriend where they were going to sit, no one said they couldn’t sit next to each other, and Harry perhaps strategically chose their position at the table to appease their handlers.
"You and your love" "Someone" "Partner". Find the similarities.
Yes it’s gender neutral because not all girls like boys and not all boys like girls so stop making it about Larry
No, poor Larry.
Anyway, yes, when they ask Harry who he likes, he answers for other girls and boys
i’m so weak for harry
i could talk about him 10 hrs a day yet i don’t know the boy? like all i ever got out of him are a few giggles and strange mimics and meaningless stares while being absolutely nothing to him and i’m still so endeared LIKE…
