I like you.
UGH YES OKAY I'VE FALLEN VICTIM TO ONE DIRECTION FANDOM. This is not surprising if you follow me on Tumblr, which is where I spend most of my days, chillin' out maxin' and relaxin' all cool and reblogging pictures of Harry Styles being a perfect human being etc. I really thought my Sherlock fannishness would stick around but it's hard to focus when new canon only comes every year and a half and nobody is canonically eighteen. God RPF, I might experiment with media fandoms, but you know I always come back to you!|
So far 1D fandom seems to be sort of a rabbit hole that people fall into and then end up looking into things and finding fic and primers and pics and feelings (everywhere feelings!!!) but in case you haven't done that and you want to here are some recommendations for ways to get up on this action:
• Really big impressive primer from someone who's been in the fandom since the XF days
• Mostly Harry/Louis-centric primer which is cool because OTP
• Why Everyone Should Ship Larry I'm pretty sure this is the post that won me over to this fandom
• Harry Styles and his weirdo jealousy by weirdo I do kind of mean amazing
• A big collection of lots of older Harry/Louis pics and moments in case you were getting too much air and wanted to drown yourself in feels
• Harry/Louis .gif collection wheeee
• f a b u l o u s OT5 .gif collection post! like this is literally the cuddliest band I can't???
• another awesome Harry/Louis quote/gif collection because do you have something better to do with your time than look at them NOPE YOU DON'T
• More Harry/Louis primer-ness heyo
• Why You Should Ship Ziam holla at my secondary OTP
• Never enough jealous!Harry analysis tbh
And some of my personal favorite Harry/Louis canon. Let's all play a game called "Explain These Actions With A Conclusion Other Than That They're Dating":
Sugarscape interviews Niall: and Niall the purple-hoodied Irish Easter egg is adorable, but the point of this clip is how at 3:18 (turn your speakers up), off-camera and (probably?) not aware that they're audible, Harry says "Louis, can I give you a blowjob?" and Louis answers "I'd love for you to, just wait." Audio isolated here. Niall hears it and looks over and laughs, while everyone else on planet Earth tries to figure out how exactly Harry could be joking.
Musique Plus interview: Usually in interviews, virtually whenever they're asked what they look for in a girl, Harry wins at the Pronoun Game by invariably answering with what he looks for in a person (here's a favorite, I like this one too). In this case he actually says "it helps if you can hold a conversation with him." Audio isolated here (along with a .gif of his face!) if you want to dwell on it. But yo he definitely is talking about what he looks for in a dude.
One Direction after the Brits: They're asked what artist at the show they'd snog and at 1:50 Harry says he'd definitely snog Adele, then glances at Louis, who's gone all crabby, and then tells him "sorry," which I guess is a normal apology to give to a platonic friend NOPE JUST KIDDING IT ISN'T.
Given the pretty extensive canon this fandom doesn't have the backlog of fic necessary to meet my needs (everything: is all about me) but one_d_fanwork seems to be posting at a good clip and I'm hoping that more folks will start putting their stuff up on AO3. It seems like a good number of people post their fic to Tumblr which currently is one of those situations that makes me all BACK IN MY DAY WE HAD TO WALK UPHILL BOTH WAYS JUST TO FIND A YAHOOGROUP and also it usually tends to be a formatting disaster (like srsly your shit better be like super pornographic dirty talk gangbang fic if I'm expected to deal with tiny green text in a three inch column on a dark green background or whatever the fuck) so I haven't read much that isn't posted on LJ. I'm a hopeless reccer (usual feelings on a fic I liked a lot: it was hot \o/) but here are some stories I've enjoyed recently anyway: ( Recs ahoy! Mostly Harry/Louis, some OT5.Collapse )
Okay that's my post! Really I'm just trying to prepare anyone who stills reads this journal for the coming onslaught of 1D fic I'm going to be writing. I'm excerpting at Tumblr if you'd like to jump in. Come party with me. LET'S TALK ABOUT HARRY STYLES.
