#urgh i just had a horrible thought #what if this is just after harry was filmed in the malaria hospital #and he’d had to stop crying his eyes out so they could film #(that’s why looks so bug-eyed and blinky in the intro for the video) #but up until that point he’d been tucked up in louis’ comforting arms #ofc he couldn’t stay there #so he slid over to the other side of the bus #but just before liam started filming #louis slid his hand over so just the sides of their palms were touching #compass finding ship #and that touch means more than anything (thisismyoneluckyprize)
Im pretty sure that’s exactly what happened.
In fact, ever since the music video came out, i’d been wondering why Harry was so puffy-eyed in the intro scene, and why he was talking so uncharacteristically fast, as if he wanted to get it over with as quickly as possible, and why he was turned away from Louis even though they’d allowed them to sit next to each other.
The donation advertisement where Harry cried came out afterwards. And it explained EVERYTHING.
