is your British ass happy now? [Apr. 26th, 2012|01:24 am]
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:

the hunger in my heart by likecharity: Really captures the tension of the X-Factor era.
give it to me like i want it by likecharity: Super, super, super hot fill on a kink meme prompt. Glad she de-anoned.
that boy's got my heart in a silver cage by likecharity: This author is hooking it up ficwise. Just read all her stuff. (But if you've any interest in this fandom at all you probably already have? See, useless at reccing!)
Intravenous, Intertwined by wordgasmic: This is way dubcon, but it's exactly the kind of dubcon I like a lot.
I Fell in Love Next to You by inkedimage: Adorable fic about Liam and Zayn falling asleep with each other. Totally my secondary OTP.
Too many legs under the table by intherubble: Argh so hot. This author really manages to carve out some great characterizations in here. Her Louis kills me. Perfect.
Take A Peek by colazitron: Oh my god this is hot like burning. Harry/Louis in front of the boys, some sort of forced feminization, bit of cross-dressing.

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.

Hello! I have found you via friend of friends list, and would just like to say WELCOME TO THE MADNESS. I'm so glad more LJ people are getting into 1d, now there might actually be GOOD fic. Nothing against tumblr, it's my main hangout these days, but good lord those kids do not know how to write and also sometimes they terrify me? Like, I was in bandom okay, I know what it's like to be in all-consuming love with a band but jesus christ people. o.o Sorry to like, creep on your journal like this but I always get super excited when I see another person on LJ get sucked in, and this is the first fandom since bandom that's made me want to reach out and talk to people instead of stay hidden away in lurkerdom, so I hope you don't mind! I haven't seen a lot of the things you linked to either, so wooooo I know how I'm spending my night!

Ahh thank you! It was literally two weeks ago that someone reblogged a Harry/Louis gifset and I thought to myself "this seems like it could be of interest to me" and it was basically the fannish equivalent of deciding to start shooting up heroin because MORE. MORE. MORE. Oh my fucking god man, this band. Yeah bandom was totally my last big fandom (for like...four years, I still go see associated bands) and I've been adrift since then, but 1D seems to be the one that's brought me back to LJ because the feelings just can't be contained. FEELINGS. FEELINGS EVERYWHERE. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ *:・゚✧*:・゚

Up until two weeks-ish ago, I actually had One Direction tumblr saviored, so I never saw posts about them, and then someone on my flist started posting about them, and how precious Louis and Harry were and I was like NO I WILL NOT BE DRAWN IN I REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO BANDOM I REFUSE and then the very next day my tumblr was all One Direction, all the time. I think the fannish equivalent of heroin is the perfect way to describe them tbh. It's -- well not nice, but comforting I guess, to know that there's someone else who was fannishly adrift after bandom. I still look back at that time in my fannish life as the best thing ever, and I miss it like crazy. I compare every fandom I'm in to bandom and they just come up wanting. The fic's not as good, the fans are terrible -- there's always something. I've been in media fandom for the most part since then and WOW has it been different to come back into an active RPS fandom. So much new canon all the time! I had forgotten what it was like to be afraid to go to sleep because WHAT IF I MISS SOMETHING??? SO MANY FEELINGS I'M DROWNING IN THEM AHHHHHH

Ugh I'm terrible at leaving coherent comments, I'm so sorry. In my defense it's two in the morning and no one's coherent at two in the morning.

I had a friend who got into 1D a few months ago, and we had been friends in popslash and bandom so I was like okay, and I watched the One Thing video and I was like "eh no, boring, they're not that cute" so it's confusing to me that I watched it again last week and it was all I ever wanted to have in front of my eyes for eternity??? What? How? I've read on and off in media fandoms recently but god yes, bandom was really the thing, wasn't it? Christ, I loved Panic! At The Disco so much. I mean I love my TV shows and everything but nothing compares to RPF. It's like last week I woke up and there were new .gifs of Harry Styles in his underwear. YOUR MOVE, NEXT WEEK. LET'S DO THIS.

Coherence is for suckers! I'm following you on Tumblr and friending you here because one mustn't OD on 1D alone! \o/

Oh my God you love Panic! too? NEW BEST FRIEND FOREVER. I'm trying to order my thoughts and you know, make sense, but all I can think is IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I'VE MET SOMEONE WHO DIDN'T JUDGE ME FOR MY UNDYING LOVE FOR THOSE RIDICULOUS BOYS. Brendon/Ryan will be my OTP until I die, I think.

YES hng omg shirtless Harry. And then like, a day ago there was a video of Harry and Louis being cuddley drunks in a bar in Wellington. Things happen so fast here! WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?

Oh, awesome! I don't post on LJ much myself, but I do love commenting on other people's posts, so I'll totally friend you back. I swear, I've gotten so many new followers on tumblr this week, just from starting to post One Direction. I didn't change anything else about my blog! The boys are magic.

Hahahahaha oh my god seriously I was a huge Brendon/Ryan shipper for years, scroll back like not even a page on this LJ and it's all there, I wrote a good amount of fic. I am always such a sucker for the big obvious pairing. /o\ If you want a mindfuck, consider that in 2006/7 when most people got into the fandom and started writing fic, Brendon and Ryan were 19 and 20, same-ish as the 1D boys now. Auuuuugh.

THAT VIDEO. Oh my god, and all the drama with the guy who filmed it saying he saw them kiss? What's it even like to be Harry and Louis? This fandom is fucking bonkers, I mean I've been into RPF pairings where I could definitely see how they could be banging IRL, but this is the first fandom where I'm sort of grasping at straws trying to explain Harry and Louis withOUT reaching the conclusion that they're actually a couple? What? I don't know? I can't? What will tomorrow bring???

Big obvious pairings are big and obvious for a reason! There is nothing wrong with liking big obvious pairings! Auuuuuugh omg they're all so ooooold now now I feel old! I'm the same age as Louis I can't be old!

I've thought the same thing! Like, I shipped Brendon and Ryan hardcore, and I could point to certain things as "They're sleeping together!" but I NEVER tinhatted for them like I do for Harry and Louis. It's really difficult to find ways to explain their behavior that don't boil down to the conclusion that they're fucking! Even when management (one would presume, anyway) tries to remind us that Harry is a ladies' man and Louis has a girlfriend, it makes more sense to look at it as them doing damage control! My friend Jenny (likecharity) started making a timeline of events in fandom, starting with this month, and it was INSANE seeing how many women Harry was linked to right after -- I think it was the video of him kissing Louis' cheek at a concert came out. Something like eight women in as many days.


EDIT: I just looked at the fic recs bit, which I hadn't before now, and realized that you recced three of Jenny's fics and maybe me mentioning her would look like name dropping or something oh my god no I just want everyone to know how great she is frtgyhu I'm sorry I'm not namedropping ahhhhhh

h a t e r s all up in my grill, why tho? HARRY AND LOUIS ARE IN LOVE, PAY ATTENTION. *stomps foot, drags you away from the Irish cupcake*

Niall and Liam singing Sexy and I Know It - frankly this was when I was like OH OKAY, NIALL

ahahahaha i caaaan't it's a sickness. i have a thing for the irish ok!! something about their accents and attitudes and pastiness really does it for me IDK. i just knew i would love niall AND I DO. also he looks like the smallest?? i'm into that :X

c r y i n g WHY WOULD YOU LINK ME THAT. i am so desperate to see him loved up and NOPE, DENIED AT EVERY TURN. EVEN IN THE OT5 CUDDLE GIF POST, i got my hopes up with the mention of the bromance between liam and niall and then OF COURSE zayn says to liam i thought it was you and me OF COURSE HE DOES. ;_____; oh god, it's just fueling my obsession- the more someone's excluded the more crazy the need i have for them not to be a;ldkfj

at least i found this liam quote: Niall's like my girlfriend. Everytime we hangout, I buy him food whenever he's hungry and take him wherever he wants. and coupled with that above video I'LL MORE THAN TAKE IT that video is incredible I TAKE BACK MY HATRED there is only bitter resentment.. and aching disappointment.. left (you know i love you ANYWAY even though you pulled me away from an impassioned rant on asoiaf i was making in my journal with the promises of irish cupcakes IN LOVE. is what i heard anyway /o\)

ALSO HIS LIL IRISH JIG A;FLDLFKJ HARRY LOUIS LARRY WHO :*** although that gif with the three of them and erm zayn possibly in bed is ADORABLE OT5 (or whichever configurations include niall!!) FOR LIFE

Like whatever, tumblr's great for visual stuff. Way better than lj! Hurray tumblr, point for you! But being forced to read text in a tiny font in an eye-searing layout is too much work and is dumb and everyone should just stop now. NOW.

PS this post is excellent and I'm going to go read all the fic now. well all the Harry/Louis fic anyway, I keep forgetting the name of the one of the other three that isn't Niall or Zayne, and Harry and Louis are too distracting for me to focus on anyone else anyway.

Ahahahahaha I knowwwwwwwww. What weirds me out still is that some people are coming into fandom and Tumblr is their primary introduction and home base, because they've missed the LJ wave completely because they are sixteen year olds and kill me?? I feel like fandom went from publishing in zines to mailing lists/personal websites to fandom-specific archives (or ff.net which became irrelevant on 9/12/01 when they took down all the NC-17 fic and RPF) to LJ and now it's just totally decentralized and I hate everything. CAN'T PEOPLE JUST CATER TO MY NEEEEEEDS

I'm glad you got some stuff out of this, Harry/Louis is definitely the OTP!! But Liam, LIAM! Liam is adorable. I swear dude, the rest of them will grow on you. I mean I still want to read and write the most fic about Harry and Louis, but the rest of them are qt and definitely have a place in my life. Liaaaaaaaaaam.

Let's talk about Harry Styles indeed! The thing with him is that I don't even really know where to start talking about him. haha

Do we talk about his gorgeous hair or his as-perfect-as-I've-ever-seen green eyes or his love of older women and constant nudity or his belief in not "objectifying women" while at the same time seeming to be rather slutty or perhaps my favorite, his undying love and endless eye-fucking of his bandmates???

Tell me, where does one begin to discuss Harry fucking Styles?!
