THE ONE DIRECTION FRIENDING MEME!!!!

Since the One Direction fandom has been exploding lately (yay!), I thought it was time to have a...



If you want to pimp the meme out because you're an awesome individual, here's the code for the above banner:



or you can use this banner:



and the code for that one is:




To play, copy and paste this code into a new comment and fill out your information, then talk/friend away! Yay, new friends! :D



ETA: apparently LJ has been marking some people's comments as spam ( >:( LJ). I'm unscreening them as soon as I notice them, but if I don't see it right away, please PM me so I can fix it as quickly as possible!

ETA PART TWO: I've gotten a few comments about this, so just a heads-up: it's more polite to say something before friending than just going ahead and friending! Let people know what you have in common, if you're friending them on twitter/tumblr too, introduce yourself, that kind of thing! That way, people know who you are if you friend them on other platforms, etc. :)

Name: Eli
Age: 22
Location: LA

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Oh god. I think I heard WMYB in the car on the way to Disneyland and then we kept playing it over and over and then I wanted to listen to their music when I got home and then there was a gaysplosion and I spiraled out of control.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: the hunger in my heart by likecharity, though the one she posted today looks like it will be pretty amazing as well! There are others I really adore as well, but that was the first one to come to mind. I also really love anything by aestivalblue and I'm currently really enjoying the homeless!Harry soupkitchenvolunteer!Louis kink meme fill by suzie_shooter.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I love all their faces so much. Harry was my favorite first, but Liam is sneaking up on me very quickly. Harry/Louis is my OTP but I'll read anything involving either of them and also just any pairing in general. There doesn't even have to be a pairing. Fuck. What has this fandom done to me?
Favorite One Direction song?: I love love LOVE their cover of Torn, but if I have to pick a song that's actually theirs, then One Thing (specifically their acoustic version).
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Can I choose all of them? I'll choose two: The Mario Kart interview where driving in Mario Kart is a metaphor for sex, and the boys performing Torn at the judges houses, because it's so raw and beautiful and they've just formed into a band and are already so close. <3

Fun fact about yourself: I am likeaglass's roommate, and we are sitting next to each other on the couch filling these out! Also, I am 1/3 of podramble, a fannish podcast focusing on tropes (and in the episode that's being edited right now, I squee about One Direction for, oh, the entire thing, basically). Also, like Harry, I have four nipples. One of these things is not true.
Favorite trope: sickfic. I will do anything for fic with sniffles and blankets and soup and hurt/comfort. Ugh.
Other fandoms you're in: The Social Network was my main one for the past year or so, but I also like Revenge, Merlin, Doctor Who, X-Men, Star Trek, and bandom. I will probably kick myself later for forgetting things, but those are the main ones.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Lately it's been vidding and/or One Direction squee, so probably things that are relevant to your interests! Before that it was a lot of stuff about TSN, so that will still probably pop up every once in a while. Sometimes I talk about RL things too. :D
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Yes to both! jurassic-shark on tumblr and jumpercut on twitter.

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): I have many, but here is one of my most recent favorites!

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU HAD FOUR NIPPLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hahaha kidding, love you, what has become of our lives, etc etc, and so on and so forth.

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: My girlfriend and roommate ganged up on me and made me watch the WMYB vid, and I was basically like OMG LOOK AT THE TINY ADORABLE PUPPIES!!!!! Then I watched a million vids the next day and was sucked in further by Harry Styles's lovely, lovely face.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: this top!harry one on the kinkmeme and this one by likecharity
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Louis and Harry. And Liam. And Zayn (aka Pooh). And Niall. UGH I CAN'T HELP IT I LIKE THEM ALL. But my OTP 4EVAH is DEFINITELY harry/louis, I can't read them with anyone else. I also love Liam, Niall, and Zayn in any combination. Oh, and I ship Liam/Danielle because they are ADORABLE. a;lksjdfl;aksd ALL THE SHIPS, OKAY, I AM LIKE THE GODDAMN BRITISH NAVY. But yes, my flagship (hurr hurr) is Louis/Harry, ugh just put it in my eyeballs.
Favorite One Direction song?: a;lskdjflaksd I DON'T KNOW. WMYB and One Thing, probably. And any song where Louis has a solo, because I am a Louis wife. Non-album song I love is Grenade and Torn.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: OMG SO MANY, but I love this vid best

because "dangerous slave" ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME LOUIS TOMLINSON????????

Fun fact about yourself: I'm the Executive Producer for one of Zachary Quinto's soon-to-be-released short films, Dog Eat Dog :D
Favorite trope: ahahahahaAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH no but seriously what isn't my favorite trope? I love BDSM and soulbonding and teacher/student aus and non-famous aus and high school aus and and and....basically if it has feeeeeeeeelings, I am there. Porn is also a plus :D
Other fandoms you're in: none actively at the moment, but others I've been in are bandom, sherlock, merlin, popslash (I apparently have a THING for boybands, who knew?), jobros, harry potter, qaf us, and ummmmm probably a ton more that are super obvious that I'm forgetting oops!
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: friending memes, apparently. But I really only post squee, no real life stuff. Sometimes I write fic, sometimes I make pimping posts or posts about how fucking amazeballs my OTP is for a given fandom.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: tumblr and twitter

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):
I can't choose one, so here, have a few:

YOU'RE WELCOME!

Also, oh shit, I forgot pretend boyfriends! and jealousy! and basically every other trope you mentioned. uuuuuugggghhh I just want ALL THE FIC, ALL OF IT.

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Friends talking about them on twitter + my own morbid curiosity got the best of me.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I haven't really had a lot of time to get around to poking at any yet! I look forward to doing so though. I just need to get through this semester.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Harry and Louis and Harry/Louis, but I enjoy them all and would support any combination of the five of them!
Favorite One Direction song?: One Thing or More Than This
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Oh, I don't know! I haven't watched a ton, but I mostly just enjoy watching their faces.

Fun fact about yourself: I'm in school currently to be a teacher, and it is eating my LIFE.
Favorite trope: love love love kidfic. COLLEGE AUS. crushes and misunderstandings.
Other fandoms you're in: mostly bandom (Panic! at the Disco). There are other shows and things that I like but that's the only fandom I'm really active in.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: fic if I write it, fandom squee and ramblings, random things about life. Basically a little of this, a little of that.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: I can't remember the last time I used my tumblr, but I have twitter under this same username.

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):
I will go with a One Direction related one because it's handy!



But basically anything of this nature where they are touching and being boyfriends, to be honest.
College AU! I forgot the best trope of all the tropes omg.

Name: Lee
Age: 28
Location: Sydney, Australia.

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: I heard them on the radio and enjoyed their music and then my twitter feed exploded with links and pics and .gifs. it was all downhill from there.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I don't know yet! I've not really had a chance to do much more than get familiar with the canon so any recs are appreciated. Also links to icons!
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Primarily Harry/Louis or Louis/Liam but I am so open to ot5 and any combinations of pairings.
Favorite One Direction song?: I really enjoy all of them but maybe More Than This. Yeah, I'll go with that.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: All of them. ALL OF THEM.

Fun fact about yourself: I'm obsessed with dinosaurs and ninjas. I also have the sense of humour of a twelve year old.
Favorite trope: Boys in love, bffs in love, AU's of any kind. I will read anything as long as no one dies.
Other fandoms you're in: Panic! at the Disco primarily, Merlin, Harry Potter, The Social Network. I've dipped my toes in Game of Thrones and Doctor Who as well.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Not much. Usually RL and picspams. Sometimes fic.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: I do! buttonedsleeves.tumblr.com and _ohohstarryeyed on twitter. It's locked but if you aren't spam or someone I know in RL you're in.

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):

Photobucket
Hi Lee! If you're ot5 and you want recs, you need intherubble's Too Many Legs Under the Table. It is wonderful and I've been reccing the shit out of it haha.

Name: Jenny
Age: 21
Location: England

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: people I follow on Tumblr kept posting them and I sloooowly got sucked in and then suddenly snapped and couldn't resist any longer, and since then my life has been in a downward spiral. A glorious, glorious downward spiral.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I FEEL REALLY AWFUL because I haven't had a chance to read much fic yet (I've been too busy writing idk) but I really like this and this. NEED MORE, REC ME THINGS. Ooh, and I like this fanmix, too.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Louis is my favourite member, and Harry/Louis is absolutely my favourite ship, but I'm kinda starting to dip my toes into pairings that involve Liam and have also fallen in love with the idea of the OT5.
Favorite One Direction song?: I thiiink 'Tell Me A Lie' but I'm also really into 'Na Na Na' at the moment.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: I literally cannot pick, but at the MOMENT, I'd have to say either the Brit Awards one with the 'Harry's getting head' comment or that one where Harry flips out when the interviewer touches Louis's leg.

Fun fact about yourself: this is less 'fun fact' and more of a sort of warning, but - I have really bad social anxiety, and usually fandom stuff is fine but I can't really handle talking to people on instant messengers or anything, and might get shy with you sometimes. IDK JUST A HEADS UP.
Favorite trope: ugh god SO MANY. Domesticity, clothes-sharing, jealousy and possessiveness, and the other guys setting them up or being super supportive. Kink-wise - BDSM, crossdressing, group sex, humiliation, and probably other things I shouldn't even go into here.
Other fandoms you're in: UGH ALL OF THEM. I fandom-hop all the time. My most recent ones are Criminal Minds, Weeds, and The Kills, but the ones I've been most active in are probably Narnia and Skins, and possibly Disney?
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: it's pretty rare for me to post RL stuff - it's mostly fic, fanmixes, spams about what I'm into at the moment (usually including ridiculous over-analysis), and also sometimes I post picspams of porn because I'm a pervert. *hides* I'm not sure if there's anything I'd need to warn you about, except that a ton of the things I ship are incestuous so if that's like a massive squick for you then you probably want to steer clear of me...
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: I'm likecharity on Tumblr and hardparade on Twitter! My Twitter is locked, but just let me know who you are and stuff and everything will be cool.

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): like with videos I can't pick a definitive one because HOLY HELL SO MUCH CHOICE, so let's go with this:

omg I just stumbled upon your fic masterlist last night and was just like clapping like a happy seal at most of it. Going to be reading so much ahhha.

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: I've known about them for sometime, but didn't really look into them till a couple weeks ago and then I heard/saw them on the KCAs and just fell for them. SNL took it to a whole new level.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Ahh, haven't seen/read any... /hides
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Goddd... I don't have an exact favorite, I ship them all together!! But I do particularly like Louis/Harry.
Favorite One Direction song?: I Want
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Haven't watched too many yet. Just got into the fandom. /hidesagain

Fun fact about yourself: Ever since I was 13, I've wanted to be a singer, but before that I wanted to be a voice actress for anime for the longest time.
Favorite trope: God... a lot of things... Can't list them all. :x
Other fandoms you're in: anime/manga, a whole bunch of Japanese stuff, I adore Matsushita Yuya, Big Time Rush, Victorious, iCarly (basically, Nickelodian and all that), a little bit of Selena Gomez, some K-pop, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a whole bunch of other things. ^^;
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Umm... basic updates on my life, anything that's been stupid/awesome/epic that happened recently or so. Like my friends and I went into the woods with foam swords and fake bows and arrows to play medieval troll fighting?
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Tumblr & Twitter!!

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):

(not mine... ^^)
Welcome to the fandom! It can get crazy sometimes, just a warning, haha.

if you need good fics, here's a really good rec list, and here's another one. Happy reading! :)

Name: Emma
Age: 20
Location: currently London, usually Illinois/Iowa (depending on if I'm at college or not)

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: my dash was slowly being eaten alive by them. and then i saw that gif of Harry jumping on Louis to demonstrate lovebites within the band and i decided to go on twitter, asking someone to explain one direction ships to me. my friend Natasha came through in the end to ruin my life.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: i really don't know if i can say for sure, i've read some fic that i've really enjoyed, and this fanmix is fantastic.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Harry Styles restored my faith in humanity. Harry/Louis were my downfall.
Favorite One Direction song?: the acoustic version of One Thing.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: haha no. but i just watched this one in full after only having seen part of it. i promise my reaction to it was normal, if my normal you mean clawing at my face, falling out of my chair and screeching.

Fun fact about yourself: i'm currently studying abroad in London and the irony of that fact while the boys are not in this country is hilarious to me and also painful. very painful. i don't know what is a fun fact about myself? i am awesome. #narcissism
Favorite trope: i like fake dating that turns real, and i enjoy best friends who fall in love, and also unrequited feelings and love triangles. i know, i know love triangles are usually poorly done and make you want to smash you head against the wall repeatedly but sometimes they are the best and then i want to cry because of feelings.
Other fandoms you're in: i don't tend to like to say i'm in fandoms because at large they are terrifying. but currently i talk about The Hunger Games, except only with like 5 people because everyone else seems to fail at the basic skill of reading comprehension, The Borigas, Parks and Recreation, Cougar Town, Young Justice, Ezra "Satan" Miller
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: I bet about my life and then I post about television and movies and whatever I am currently into. My last post consisted of me recounting SNL and iCarly and talking about Young Justice and The Borigas.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: joydirection is my tumblr and i don't give my twitter out to just anybody because i do not censor my enthusiasm there and i am sure some of my friends already regret following me.

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
it accurately reflects the state of my life.
i dont know why but that gif has always scared the hell out of me so naturally when i saw it i jumped

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: well I randomly heard/watched WMYB on youtube around november and sorta liked them since that but it wasn't until march (I'm such a newbie hahaha) that I finally finally totally gave in. no turning back now! I've gotten my sisters into them and my best friend sooooo
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I've got a diigo and there's 170, mostly fics, bookmarks atm! favourite authors include imagination55 , itslaurenyall , padattack , lucy_and_ramona , sparkbyspark , 101itaa and the white toymaker :3

Favorite One Direction song?: more than this
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?:


Fun fact about yourself: oh well well. I'm nolife, I'm always on the internet. I am extremely hyper most of the time
Favorite trope: sexual tension. I often like it more than the actual sex scenes. AUs!
Other fandoms you're in: harry potter, hunger games, mcfly, TSN, sherlock, p!atd, doctor who
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: fandom, music, movies, life
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: twittah tumblr  1D tumblr

Name: Juliet
Age: er, over twelve and under twenty.
Location: Xiamen, China

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: I follow ammyarrowshigh's tumblr, and she was posting a lot of 1D, so I vaguely knew who they were. Then she posted a rec list and I saw that she had 1D fanfics recced, and since it's RPF and it's not like there was going to be any spoilers in the fics, I read them. And then I started to look up about them on tumblr because I knew their names but not their faces, and now I'm sucked in.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Anything by love-wilts, really
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I used to have favorites and least favorites, but now I literally cannot chose. It's just too hard, they're all so perfect. I like pretty much all the ships, but I think Liam/Louis and Liam/Zayn are my favorites.
Favorite One Direction song?: Na Na Na, I Want, and Moments.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Both of the Alan Carr videos. Also the Mario Kart video where Liam says "Two minutes, dead." I don't have links though :/

Fun fact about yourself: Uh, Zayn's name is very similar to my last name, so I'm always accidentally writing my last name when I write fics with him in them. Whoops. I'm just fearing the day when I have to sign some important document and accidentally write myself as Juliet Zayn.
Favorite trope: I love genderswap, university AUs, and major angst that has a lot of crying. Also sometimes mpreg, depending on my mood. And fics with a lot of touching. Not necessary sexual touching, just fics where people are comfortable enough to do little things, like bump hips while they make breakfast or brush stray curls away from faces... I don't even know.
Other fandoms you're in: Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments... I used to love Glee but now it's quite sexist and gross. I still love the cast though.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Only fic.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Yes! Here.

guh, the alan carr videos. watched those for the first time recently and they are phenomenal.

Age: 21
Location: Canada

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: I knew of the boys for a while but I kind of just ignored it while thinking they were all quite attractive, but then a friend of mine got really into them and suddenly they were all over my dash and I couldn't resist.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: There are so many good ones! Um, I recently re-read St. Peter's verse and lost a part of my soul, so I'd say anything by love_wilts is just flawless. Also, colazitron is the first author I read in this fandom and I will forever be a fan.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Louis is my baby and then Harry and Liam are tied for second but I love them all more than is socially acceptable. My OTP is Harry/Louis but I've recently been going through a Liam/Zayn phase. The only pairings I don't ship beyond a brotherly-type bromance are Nouis, Lirry, and Narry.
Favorite One Direction song?: Moments is my favorite of their slower songs and Another World/I Want are tied for up-tempo.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Again, SO MANY. Pretty sure this changes daily, so I'll have to get back to you on that.

Fun fact about yourself: Uh. My sister is an aspiring chef and it's turning me into a bit of a foodie.
Favorite trope: I love college/real life AUs, anything where they aren't in a band but are just five lads who happen to meet somehow; I'm a sucker for H/C because I am an angst-queen at heart; and oops that's two, oh well.
Other fandoms you're in: One Direction has kind of taken over my life, tbh. But I also love the Avengers (omg less than a month away!), the Vampire Diaries, Harry Potter will always be dear to my heart, uhh. There are a lot but I'm not really active in anything more than the ones I've mentioned.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Just fic, really. I save all my personal stuff for tumblr and twitter.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: tumblr / newly made 1D twitter

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): This one basically sums up all my feels about 1D.

Name: Molly!
Age: 20
Location: part-time Long Island, part-time Florida!

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Well. Like. I knew about them. I knew that they were there. and that my friend really loved them? but I called her a pedo for a year before finally caving? And uhm. Now I'm at like physical pain levels of obsession and ridiculousness. But I mostly started listening to them and loving them bc my roommate went out with a boy I liked and I just watched One Thing on repeat that night and found five better boys to like. ahahhaa
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: There are so many wonderful things but by far rn: The Difference Between Knowing and Knowing by luxover
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Ziam!!! and I don't like to say I have a favorite member because each of them makes me want to curl into a ball of joy and die, but Liam is my secret favorite shhh don't tell.
Favorite One Direction song?: aahh this changes on a weekly basis but today's is definitely Stand Up. I just love how all the sounds just meet together in the end.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?:
uhm it's not of the boys? It's uhm. me meeting Liam and awkwardly gazing at him while playing with my lipring?


but it's you know. Liam and I so it's like my favorite thing on the planet, negl.
Fun fact about yourself: 1. I've had a brain aneurysm! 2. I have purple hair! 3.I am friends with Lux? aahahaha
Favorite trope: gaah uhm. I think maybe like...idk kissing lessons? Or like even like just like the idea of helping the person you're in love with get someone else but then in the end they realize~ and come to make out with you instead. that ahahahaha. is that a trope?
Other fandoms you're in: gaaahhh everything? but like, not. I'm in American Idol and sometimes Football (soccer) but I lurk around the edges of Sueprnatural, Avengers, Percy Jackson and like..so much more fuck ahahaha.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: usually it's the far and few between posts these days of random shit going on in my life. idek. just a lot of "BLAHBLAH THIS HAPPENED" and "blahablah how should I do this?" and "blahblah tell me about this hot person!!" There's an ocasional bought of fic, but that is incredibly rare.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: merlinannblack on both! :)

Name: Cheyenne
Age: 23
Location: California

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: I watched XF in 2010 and saw the boys be put together, so I instantly tried to search out a fandom but nothing existed at the time. :c Then one_direction popped up about a week later and I knew I'd found my place~
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Oh, um. I don't really have a favorite? There's loads of good stuff out there, and I'm sure everyone else has linked it all by now, so.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I like to say I don't have a favorite, because I genuinely love all the boys, buttt I do tend to favor Zayn it seems. Just. You've seen him, right? My favorite ships are Ziam, Zouis, and Lilo, but I ship literally all of them in some way or another. OT5 is more than okay by me, too.
Favorite One Direction song?: Tell Me a Lie, probably. But I kind of like all of it? /o\
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Not one in particular that I can think of. I've watched all of the video diaries about a thousand times a piece. Oh and that old Harry/Louis Twitcam will always be brilliant viewing.

Fun fact about yourself: NOTHING ABOUT ME IS INTERESTING. Uh, I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue? Yeah, that's about as thrilling as it gets.
Favorite trope: This answer could get me in a lot of trouble, so um... Yeah.
Other fandoms you're in: I'm not really in any other fandoms. I dabble in loooads, but not to the level I'm involved with 1D. But uh, let's see, there's Suits, Parks and Rec, Shameless.. yeah, idk, I have a lot of interests?
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: tbh I only use my journal for communities these days
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: tumblr + Twitter I'm on these much more than LJ, so add me there! :D

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):

(It was the first thing that came to mind, sorry not sorry)

Can I just say it's nice to see so many older fans around here? I feel a bit ancient in this fandom at times (particularly on tumblr omg), so I WELCOME THIS.
well im 15 this makes me feel way too young

Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Is currently locked, but Princess Niall and the Gift of True Love by finkpishnets and show me how you (make it) glow by sky_somedays and patterns in static. by sparkbyspark/bloodbelieve are my three great loves in this fandom
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Liam is my fave forever and ever, Liam/Louis is my OTP, I ship any and all threesomes/moresomes though I hate to see Liam left out (the depths of my Liam stanning knows no bounds), and the only things I can't ship yet are Harry/Zayn and Louis/Zayn. I am currently having a lot of Liam/Louis feels and a lot of Liam/Zayn feels. And Niall/Demi feels. Also Harry feels. I have a lot of feels.
Favorite One Direction song?: Probably Tell Me A Lie. Go Zayn.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Er. TOO HARD sorry calling in sick.

Fun fact about yourself: I'm going to Prague with people I met through this fandom on Monday :D
Favorite trope: Oh, gosh, ALL OF THEM. Um. Pretend/accidental/secret marriage or dating fics, I think.
Other fandoms you're in: Currently, Being Human, Young Justice, The Hunger Games, Doctor Who, kinda former Disney stars, The Voice RPF. I've got a load of other fandoms in my back pocket, though, too. Just. I love a lot of fandoms. I need to write more for them all.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Mostly personal stuff and a lot of memes, but I'm trying to make myself post more fanish stuff again. I post the odd picspam, some 1D related, some more general. Prepping a Liam one and a flaily primer/picspam/thing about Young Justice atm. My writing journal is theplayismemory :)
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Yep :) I'm @misprinting on Twitter, feel free to follow, and I'm misprinting on Tumblr too.

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):
Lizzie, I didn't know about these Ziam feels you've been having. (((: Obviously, I approve.

So, warning, I'm new to the LJ community and the tumblr community, and I'm quite perplexed by how everything works around here ^^ so please don't hate me :D

Name: Greg
Age: 19
Location: Depends, mainlyLondon, but then we get so much holidays I move a lot :)

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?:I heard of 1D (the band) while browsing youtube, and they remmebered me of some childhood friends (well a mix of Louis and Harry) and I enjoyed the music so I checked out the internet..... and I was previsouly a big fan of merlin and heard of the tumblr/LJ communities then, and I was like let's join and discover a bit more :) plus all the sugarscape. And I love fanfictions. I mean I really read alot of them :D so I ended up here :)

Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I like all of them :D I always find it ridiculous to even consider the band minus one member. Tbh I'd like Niall and Louis to get to sing some more, I think Louis's voice is my favorite, but then 1D is a boysband and musically, I like the whole of them. I ship Larry Stylinson first and foremost, with Niam as well, and left Zayn to be the last surviving heterosexual aha ;D but Larry Stylinson primarily (I know it's kind of standard, but I cannot even read fanfics picturing Harry/one of the other boys or Louis/one of the other boys. It's just doesn't seem right in my mind). OT4/5 is fine though, as long as couple preferences are respected :D

Favorite One Direction song?: Moments. I lvoe Ed Sheeran, and I really enjoy slow, kinda sad songs. Moments is the song that made me rush to the fandoms aha :D

Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: The One Thing music video would be my favorite music video. The French Intervoew with Louis and Harry and the french interview in La Boite a Questions are probably my favorites videos :)

Fun fact about yourself: I'm male (apparently the fandom is populated by girls :D so I guess that makes me unusuak?) and I'm french and my favorite activity is to annoy the shit out of my friends by bringing 1D up in every possible conversations. They all hate me :(

Favorite trope: Told you I alm new. I have no idea what a trope is :D

Other fandoms you're in: Merlin (BBC show). I really am into the bromance fandoms aha :D

What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: I don't post as of now. I mean I mainly joined to get my daily fill of fics (cause Wattpad and onedirectionfanfiction weren't enough anymore) and comment on them :-) and I'm no writer sadly

Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: I have a completely empty tumblr (created yesterday) letsboardthelarryship.tumblr.com . I'm in the middle of my revisiosn so I'm not doing anything with it atm except keeping in touch with tumblr people I enjoy, but I guess I'm gonna start using it when I have some free time :)

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): All gifs usually make my day ^^. Sorry can't post anything (imagewise) as it's not my computer so I have nothing saved on it.
oh, another french fan! hi, darling, nice to meet you.

a trope is an 'overused plot device' such as, for example, uni!au, coffeeshop!au, etc, etc. they are awesome : D

and welcome! it's true that we don't have many male fans around here, but gender shouldn't keep people from enjoying the beauty and gayness that is one direction : )
