that one time niall admitted he’s showered together with harry [x]
I like that right after Niall implies he’s been naked with Harry, Louis feels the pressing need to run around Liam so he can roll up Harry’s sleeves.
Jealous boyfriend is jealous.
No no no no no. Louis ran over right after Harry said he takes long showers — and Louis has a track record of getting sexually provoked by the mental image of Harry’s naked body. Niall was implying that Harry gets blown in the shower (by guess who?), which would explain why Harry is taking long showers and why Harry is standing for a long time in the shower with his head down, and why Harry gave Niall that look.
Sexually provoked boyfriend Louis is sexually provoked. If anything, Harry was acting the jealous boyfriend watching Louis play with the other boys during this interview (he so, so was), which would explain why Harry was trying to get Louis’ attention like that.
Agreed Lapelosa, Niall was not implying he showered with Harry, he was implying something very different;)
(Although, it also has to be said that Louis also has a track record of fixing Harry up when he is jealous)
It’s true that Louis has a track record of fixing Harry up when he’s jealous! But not every instance of Louis fixing Harry up is in response to jealousy. Sometimes it just seems to be to express intimacy or closeness. I’m thinking of the baseball game in Dallas when Louis fixed his sleeve and rubbed his fist on Harry’s thigh. No jealousy there, but lots of acting like a couple.
Also, Louis fixed Harry’s sleeve earlier in the same interview after Harry annoyed him by calling him lazy. Louis fixing Harry’s sleeve seemed to be his way of reconciling and smoothing over the conflict.
Anyway, the point is that Louis fixing Harry up isn’t always about jealousy. It seems to, at a more basic level, express intimacy — which is why you see it when Louis IS jealous, but it’s not always about jealousy. In this instance it was in response to Harry, uh, being a sexual tease.
