We're fairly sure you didn't sign up for this kind of Louis Tomlinson-related emotional journey when you woke up today, but as a long-term One Direction fan, you're probably used to the boys causing you multiple heart attacks per hour by now. C'est la vie de fangirl.
Yesterday, everyone's favourite Tommo was spotted on a cute li'l date with girlfriend Danielle Campbell – but while that's all very lovely and cute, we need to talk about his fashion choices for the evening, alright?
He's gone and dropped the ultimate fetus throwback on you by wearing the classic Louis red and white striped tee, so now it's time to efficiently compare and contrast our way through this momentous occasion.
Unfortunately, we spent all the picture budget on biscuits and can't afford the HQ pics of Louis canoodling with Danielle, but luckily he bumped into a fan not too long afterwards to give us a good look at the tshirt in question.
As you can see, the red and white stripes are almost identical to those he favoured during the early days of One Direction, but what's changed exactly between fetus Louis in stripes vs 2016 Louis in stripes?
There's certainly more stubble these days, that's for sure, and his arms are significantly more tatted up than the first stripey era, clearly expressing how Louis now lives life with a more complex state of mind and an eternally developing wisdom of the world.
His swooshy side fringe has extended considerably, and now takes an approximate 263 degree angle down his face, rather than the previous 184 degrees latitudinal across his fetus forehead. We can conclude that this represents that he now looks at life from a new angle.
Interestingly, the stripes of 2016 have also been paired with a light-wash denim shirt for a more casual final outcome, and the bright red jeans of yesteryear have been traded in for simple, black denim.
We can only assume this is a symbolic metaphor for energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Probably.
A+ to us.
Well this is unexpectedly emotional. What do you reckon to 2016 Louis paying tribute to fetus Louis? Feeling all the feels? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
