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 other banner below the cut:Collapse )

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: Shannon
Age: 20
Location: Belfast, Ireland

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Voted for them on X Factor but didn't really get into the actual fandom until early summer 2011.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Off the top of my head this, and this
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I love them all but have a soft spot for Niall so I ship all Niall ships first, especially Narry then Ziall, Nouis and Niam. I love ot5 but basically I see the validity in all ships.
Favorite One Direction song?: My most played on itunes is somehow the Gotta Be You remix ha! but I love Moments, Another World and Stole My Heart
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: All of them obvs but Zayn makes my life in the swedish signing one and I love this photoshoot but I could rewatch the One Thing video over and over and all behind the scenes videos.

Fun fact about yourself: Um I'm allergic to rabbit and cats but I really want one cus they're cute.
Favorite trope: Do long things count? Anything lonnnnggg. Domesticity, uni AU, hurt/comfort if it's done well.
Other fandoms you're in: NCIS and HP back in the day. Sort of Grey's, Gossip girl, Game of Thrones, tvd, Good Wife and Weeds but not really anymore. 1D has sort of taken over my life.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: So far only fic, I'm more of a tumblr girl.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Tumblr

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):
and this sums my life up well, except I like tea too...
Gossip Girl! Good Wife! you sound like you're a beautiful person, dear.

Name: Grace

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: A couple of my favorite authors for other fandoms were writing it. I trusted their taste, so I started looking for information so I could read their fics. I very quickly became slightly obsessed.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Oh gosh, I don't know. I love anything by lucy_and_ramona, and a lot of the stories on the kink meme are surprisingly good as well.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I ship Niall with literally anyone, because I love his face and he needs all the cuddles. OT5 is really good too, because they're all so cute together.
Favorite One Direction song?: One Thing, particularly the acoustic version. It's so cheerful and fun!
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: The one where they imitate the other contestants! They make each other laugh so much, and they are so cute, and they smush Harry and kiss his face.

Fun fact about yourself: Narwhals are my favorite because they're the unicorns of the sea.
Favorite trope: Cuddling and hugging, especially in the context of hurt/comfort.
Other fandoms you're in: Mostly bandom, occasionally y_slash and figure skating.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Boring stuff about my life, with some fic.

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



This one, because Niall is smiley. Someone needs to alert the police, because he has stolen all of the adorable.
Name: Lea
Age: 17
Location: Küttigen, Switzerland

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Heard WMYB while on holidays in Scotland... Then I basically loved it, had it on my iPod and more or less forgot to check them out further... :( And then, when WMYB popped up on my iTunes the second last Monday I went on Youtube and couldn't stop watching their videos. Because they are all so cute and I basically slash anyone who makes any sort of indication (conscious or not^^) in that direction, I of course had to find some fic. Since then I've fallen so hard, they've been stealing my sleep in favor of reading fic... -.- What a luck it's Easter holidays here! ;D
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I just read one that I totally loved... Love you more than this
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I seriously can't pick anyone, I love them all so much. I don't think that's ever happened (in a band)... My OTPs are Larry Stylinson and Niam, but I love Zayn/any of the other guys... And basically, I read every ship, another something that hasn't happened in any fandom I've ever been in. These boys...
Favorite One Direction song?: I Want and their cover of Torn
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?:
If I had to make someone a One Direction fan with one vid, I'd show them this one:


And this, it's so cute:


Fun fact about yourself: I love accents... Especially the English and also the Swiss-German accents (which is what we talk in my part of Switzerland).
Favorite trope: cuddling, touching, schmoop, I am a sucker for happy!1Dfic... but I have a strange love for angst too^^. I think it's a weird sort of balance
Other fandoms you're in: Supernatural, Football (soccer), McFly, Merlin, The Mortal Instruments
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: personal stuff, lots of fandom love rants, memes and sometimes picture posts :)
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: No, I don't. (Yes, I'm weird like that^^)

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):
My all time faves:





(the eyes... O.O)
...I love Zayn/any of the other guys... And basically, I read every ship, another something that hasn't happened in any fandom I've ever been in. These boys... WORD!

Supernatural, Merlin and The Mortal Instruments! Have you heard about the TMI movie?!

We should definitely be friends!

Age: turning 18 next week
Location: France

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: i was on [Unknown LJ tag]paperclipbitch's journal, read the most amazing fanfics about the boys there, forgot about them. they came here, i saw them again, and then i fell into the rabbit hole. haven't climbed out since /sigh
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: oh my god, i like so many things. the FIC, man. so, in the it-makes-me-smile-and-my-eyes-go-mushy section i ADORE lnr_ficslnr_fics, sky_somedayssky_somedays, misprintingmisprinting, sparkbysparksparkbyspark, finkpishnetsfinkpishnets and in the it-breaks-my-heart-and-makes-me-cry section, i'm a massive fangirl of , love_wiltslove_wilts, say_thankssay_thanks and unevenfootstepsunevenfootsteps.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I JUST CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF HARRY. he's my lesbian exception, i can't do anything about it, just, urgh. so basically i ship him with everyone. atm i particularly love larry stylinson, harry/caroline (best het ship imo), harry/eleanor and harry/zayn (but harry/niall and harry/liam and harry/everyone else in the world are very, very fine with me). love threesomes too, especially if they're written well. atm i'm into harry/gemma/louis, harry/eleanor/louis and harry/liam/zayn the most, mostly because i'm writing them. then liam/louis/harry has had pretty awesome fic about it (both angst and fluff, bless the writers), i think it read a great ed/louis/harry too (though ed and sex, just, no). ALL THE THREESOMES TBH. other than that... zayn/louis is sexy, niall/zayn is cute, liam/zayn is... i'm ambivalent about it. oh, also OT5 is pretty epic.
Favorite One Direction song?: I want.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: um... the mario kart one was pretty epic, to tell the truth.

Fun fact about yourself: probably not funny, but... i do lyrical singing, like, opera?
Favorite trope: coffee!shop!au (either that or bakery!au. also uni!au. all the fluff basically).
Other fandoms you're in: i'm not in any other fandoms, but i read a lot in every fandom i get my hands on and occasionally write for them (so that's harry potter, adam lambert, ice skating, gossip girl, tokio hotel, spn, tsn, bandom, some mangas, veronica mars, avengers, gilmore girls, glee, inception, x-men, sherlock, hsm, merlin, suits and i'm probably forgetting a few of them but i'm going to stop there).
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: fic. sometimes. or nothing.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: nope.
Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related):

so this one pretty much kills me every time and is hypnotic


this one with the niall!shipper just cracks me up SO MUCH


well. that doesn't need commenting, does it?

I'm not going to lie I wasn't a fan of them at first because everyone kept comparing them to McFly and I was really protective. But around this time last year I went and I want to say I decided to watch some of the 2010 X Factor videos and came across all of the One Direction ones and I have been hooked ever since.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: </b>Just about anything written by lellsy especially Uncommon Sanction and I have been really loving Pictures Of Santorini by trude11

I have 3 brothers, I'm obsessed with everything that has to do with the UK, I love to read and write, I got into fan fiction through Harry Potter when I was 15 or so, I keep all my fortunes from fortune cookies and I am a firm believer in horoscopes and zodiac signs. The only really interesting about me at the moment is that One Direction tour tickets go on sale on the 21st of April which is my golden birthday. :)
Favorite trope: I'm a sucker for Mpreg and Angst fics. I love forbidden relationships fics and AU. Drunk fics especially with angst and amnesia fics. I fon't know, you put in loads of angst then I'm probably going to love it.
Other fandoms you're in: Mostly Harry Potter, McFly (or Just my Luck), and the X factor. Amongst a ton others.

Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Twitter

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): I have a bunch I love but I don't know how to attach one onto here. :/ Can someone please teach me? :)

Age: 18
Location: australia (skdjfhkjsdfhskdjfhjsdhkd)

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: WELL, IT WAS SOME POINT LAST YEAR and they just kept popping up on my tumblr dashboard, and i just was like, no, i don't want to get into one direction, no thanks. i watched WMYB and THEY ARE DORKS but i was secretly like wow they're gorgeous even though they're still dorks and then there was a photoset from a year in the making of harry when he's crying and saying that he cares what people think about him and i just - THAT WAS THE MOMENT I WAS LIKE FINE, FUCK YOU, I LOVE YOU. so yeah.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: um. don't ask me this. i have too many. ANYTHING BY mathilde and elle and elizabeth and leah and betsy and claire and naomi and hannah and ALL THE WRITERS.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I LOVE ALL FIVE OF THEM, THOUGH I MUST POINT OUT THAT LIAM IS AN ANGEL PUPPY and i told my mum he'd probably make the most amazing son-in-law. ahem. but in terms of ships - my OTP is harry/louis (can't really ship them with anyone else...) and my OT3 is liam/zayn/niall. all combinations of my OT3 make me happy, pretty much!
Favorite One Direction song?: everything about you, especially niall's solo! also stole my heart and moments and i want.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: video tour diary number 2 ie: the ridiculous one where louis spills water on himself and niall squeaks with laughter and harry looks at louis like he wants to kiss him and liam is beautiful as usual and zayn is lovely

Fun fact about yourself: i have a twin sister, i don't like chocolate or fizzy drinks/soft drinks/pop/soda/whatever you call it. I CAN'T HANDLE BUBBLES IN DRINKS. and i can't handle cocoa, hence, most chocolate.
Favorite trope: um. everything. mostly i just like when they share a bed and cuddle. also, wearing each other's clothes. let's talk about favourite sex position because - AGAINST THE WALL SEX WHERE HARRY IS JUST MANHANDLING LOUIS AND HIS BOOTY. DELICIOUS.
Other fandoms you're in: i'm not very good at being active in multiple fandoms at a time. but. in the past - the social network, x-men: first class, merlin, doctor who, sherlock bbc, skins, the mighty boosh, supernatural all give/gave me ~feels~

Name: Julia
Age: 20
Location: Melbourne, Australia

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Well I first heard about them via people on my flist when they were on X-Factor but since I don't live in the UK I wasn't able to watch it when it was airing. There was just something about them though, and I never really forgot about them, and over the end of last year and this summer I finally had time to knuckle down and get my 1D-on and it has been MAGICAL ever since.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: skdjaskhd how can I decide?! I love pretty much any work by misprinting, go_hedgehog, finkpishnets and bloodbelieve
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Pairings-wise, Louis/Liam was my first and I still ADORE them (I particularly have a massive thing for genderswap!Liam/Louis, IDK it's hot), and Harry/Louis is awesomesauce. Individual-wise, LOUIS TOMLINSON will be forever in my heart, as will be HARRY STYLES, the utter charmer, but I love ALL OF THEM, ALL THE ONE DIRECTION, GIVE THEM TO ME *ahem*
Favorite One Direction song?: I really adore Moments, I don't know why, I usually go for fun, boppy songs, but there's something about Moments that just kills me.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: UM, how can I narrow this down, oh god. There are so many out there, but let's just go with this one:



It's just so cute!

Fun fact about yourself: I'm born on a leap year so technically I've only had 5 birthdays :D
Favorite trope: Umm, I'll go with what I mentioned above and say genderswap, but there're so many...
Other fandoms you're in: Harry Potter, Bandom, Merlin, Sherlock, Misfits, The Good Wife, Criminal Minds, White Collar, Skins, Doctor Who
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Mainly RL stuff interspersed with ramblings about TV shows or fandom. I've also just signed up to the 100 Things Challenge and will be posting 100 Pictures of Doors (and Sometimes Their Houses)
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: I've got a twitter account that I never use and I've been considering getting tumblr, but for now I'll say no!

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): Argh, gifs never seem to work for me when I post them in comments so let's see how this goes:

Yes it worked! :D

Name: Francesca
Age: 17
Location: London

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: OH well that would be through X Factor. During the auditions my mum and I spent about an hour talking about HOW AMAZING THAT LIAM BOY WAS, WHAT A FANTASTIC YOUNG MAN WITH A PERFECTLY PLACED BIRTHMARK. We also liked Harry because he was cute. I refused to watch Niall's audition because Katy Perry and then at bootcamp I thought Zayn was a dick, and I didn't really care too much when they were put as a group/through Judge's Houses. On the first live show my only comment on their performance was "Well it was alright, but only because they're obviously all sleeping with each other." How was I meant to know that in about 5 weeks time that would totally prove to be true? (legit). Basically the day after the Halloween show, I stumbled upon Matt/Aiden, and three days after that the Maiden Fandom, then 1D by default. If you read all this treat yourself to a cookie.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I remember really loving (we are) the kids from yesterday when it was first posted (bonus!tswift, yes) and a Lilo fic by Paperclipbitch (whose fic is locked atm) was quite possibly my favourite thing ever in the world of ever. When I saw that she posted it I took the next day off school to lay in bed and read it. My parents weren't impressed.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Favourite member will always be Liam (even though it was Louis for a very long time but my brain was lying to me, Liam will always be my King of Angst even if he's a complete goof now). But recently I'm completely in love with Zayn too. My favourite ship is Liam/Louis but I also love Liam/Zayn and Louis/Harry.
Favorite One Direction song?: lol none. I remember liking their version of Total Eclipse of the Heart? Forever Yours was good too. And I can tolerate WMYB (which means IT'S ANNOYINGLY CATCHY AND SWEET).
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Oh, gosh. I loved pretty much every single backstage thing from the X Factor. I would link but a) I can't think of one b) I can't be bothered and c) I don't really want to. I love all the things. Also the first ever Liam/Andy twitcam was probably just one of my favourite nights ever.

Fun fact about yourself: Well I'm not very fun so... I'm taking a gap year atm which means I spend my time sleeping all day and watching shitty TV all night.
Favorite trope: I love AUs like too much. Any AU involving bakerys/bookshops/librarys/writing/books/coffee shopes/anything to do with books/high school. I also love genderswap. Very partial to angst and domesticity. Erm, basically anything with a lot of sexual tension and willtheywon'tthey sorta thing.
Other fandoms you're in: Supernatural, Glee, Doctor Who. Occasionally Harry Potter and Victorious/iCarly/BTR.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Nothing at all. I've been pretty much a full time lurker since October 2010.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: my tumblr and my twitter is locked but i'll most probably accept you if you're not related to me. (Also I don't post 1D much at all)

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

Yeah idk either. Also please ignore how my grammar just progressively got worse throughout because in my defence it's almost 6am.
During the auditions my mum and I spent about an hour talking about HOW AMAZING THAT LIAM BOY WAS, WHAT A FANTASTIC YOUNG MAN WITH A PERFECTLY PLACED BIRTHMARK

Ugh, yes, it was the same in my house aha :') And Zayn at bootcamp, I had forgotten about him having to be coerced into dancing by Simon!

"Well it was alright, but only because they're obviously all sleeping with each other." How was I meant to know that in about 5 weeks time that would totally prove to be true?

You must be psychic.

And I was also in Maiden fandom! I would still be but...we barely see them anymore so there's not much new material to flail over.

Anyway, friends? Because you made me laugh and sound awesome etc.

Name: Cara
Age: 18
Location: England

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: I was a part of X Factor fandom from the beginning of their series, though originally I was more interested in Aiden Grimshaw and Matt/Aiden. My love for 1D steadily grew and by the end I was stanning for them and hoping they would win, and then, being someone already involved in internet fandom, it didn't take long to get involved in 1D fandom.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: I don't have a link, but my favourite probably remains a fic I read when their series of XF was running, which characterised them all wonderfully.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: LARRY STYLINSON. I ship these two so much I kind of don't know what to do with myself. I'd say these two are my favourite members by themselves too.
Favorite One Direction song?: Probably One Thing, but that's subject to change.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: All of them!I cannot pick one, though I especially love their XF performances because of how excited and in awe they seem, interviews in which they spend all the time pissing about, and Larry fanvids.

Fun fact about yourself: I would love to work backstage at the theatre and delegate (and when I say delegate I mean boss everyone around.)
Favorite trope: I don't know the technical names for most tropes, but I love power plays.
Other fandoms you're in: Skins, Harry Potter, Big Brother and X Factor are my main ones, though I dabble in others (such as Downton Abbey and Pretty Little Liars.)
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: I generally talk about my life, my feelings, my observations on other people... I tend to relay memories of the past, and I also sometimes post about fandom and pop culture.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Yes, my tumblr is fancydressmasks and my twitter is @_figurines. I only just got that so have barely any followers.

Age: 22
Location: Awesomeville, KickAssland...Towson, Maryland

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: When trolling Youtube like a boss I stumbled upon What Makes You Beautiful. Plus ilikehumanflesh can be blamed for a lot of it as well...don't tell her! ;)
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: IDK! You'll have to point me to some!
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: I'd have to say Zayn. I have this weakness for Zayn! Also Harry and Louis...EVERYONE IS AWESOME OKAY WHY DO I HAVE TO PICK?! YOU'RE STIFLING MY CREATIVITY GOSH! lol
Favorite One Direction song?: I think it will always be WMYB even though my friend mocks me because "How original Hillary everyone knows that song!" And I'm like "Bite me Betsy." It's just so sweet and uplifting. I like to think this is how someone will look at me some day. ;)
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: Not especially. They are freaking amazing all the time.

Fun fact about yourself: I'm a ginger! But I'm not related to Ron Weasley. :( I will how ever get sleazy for Ron Weasley which is actually probably better.

What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: Real life mixed with fannish ramblings. I'm a quasi Senior in college right now and painfully awkward with real life people so you get to read those gems. I try to showcase my dazzling wit most of the time as well!

Age: 16
Location: Norway

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: Okay so.. The first time I heard about them was when I saw a video of them singing Total Eclipse Of The Heart. I liked their voices, but you know - for me they were only guys from a talent show and here in norway being in a talent show means success for 2 months and then nothing. So I just ignored it and went on with my day. Later I kept seeing the name "Harry Styles" pop up in discussions around the net and I just thought "Who the hell is this guy and why do people keep mentioning him here and there?" So I searched up his name and BAM I saw a Larry Stylinson picture come up. Now people; I have an extreme obsession with gay guys like tv-shows and stuff. So ofc I thought they were together - imagine my cry session when I realised they weren't.. But it sparked an interest in me, so I searched them up on spotify and the first song that was on spotify was Na Na Na so I listened and I got hooked. There is just this thing like : Girl+Boyband=Explosion. It's meant to be. And then the other guys and they were like angels and their voices were perfect and then... Niall. Let me die over that true beauty. Gosh.

Favorite One Direction fanwork?: Umm.. I have new favourites every day, but there is some that really sticks with me and it's(DON'T HATE ME ITS PERFECT OMG) the underage!harry Larry fill by suzie_shooter HERE and Smile For Him by Abigail.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: Okay so one would think Larry was my OTP ? Nope. If you would ask me I'd probably say Ziam or Jiall or maybe Ziall ? Idk I ship Niall with everyone. lol. But I ship Ziam and Jiall like I ship strawberries dipped in melted chocolate. Perfect!
Favorite One Direction song?: .. Wow, that is hard - but I'd probably say Torn or maybe.. um Moments? But I love it when they sing Use Somebody even though its not their song.. hm. OR FOREVER YOUNG. Or more than this. Or WMYB ! It has such a sweet message that warms me..
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: No, lol. Like I love them all. I love the videos where they put some of my favourite moments together - but there is the video diary where Niall is mutely laughing and then throws his head back and actually laughs loudly - that is a fave moment that I'll forever cherish..

Fun fact about yourself: I eat with copsticks? lol no um. I have blond hair but sometimes it looks yellow and not pretty at all.
Favorite trope: idk what trope is.. -dumb moment-
Other fandoms you're in: Oh um. Merlin, Glee, Tokio Hotel, Justin Bieber, NCIS, Harry Potter etc..
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: My terrible, horrible, shitty fanfictions.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Yes. One for my stories - niallerhaz and one for only 1D pictures/videos/Gifs idamariiee

Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): Ohhh.. Um how am I supposed to chose? But um, here is some recent favourites:

Work those hips baby.


Not really recent but omg so perfect.




Beause he's adorable okay.

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: IT'S ALL likecharity'S FAULT! Okay, okay, not exactly. I saw them all over my dash on Tumblr, and then I saw that likecharity was posting about them so I went to ask her for a primer of sorts and she had just posted one so basically I started flailing and now I CAN'T STOP IT'S INSANE. It's just... they are so cute. And so gay. And so cute. /sigh
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: As usual, anything by likecharity, but especially this.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: So far I'm really into Harry and Louis both separately and together.
Favorite One Direction song?: Tell me a lie.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: I DON'T KNOW I CAN'T PICK THIS IS ALL SO HARD.

Fun fact about yourself: I don't know, you guys, I'm boring. Hm. I'm in a band? Is that a fun fact?
Favorite trope: ANYTHING! But, hm, just to pick one, I'm really into awkward flirting. Like, flirty banter, and friends trying to flirt and stuff like that.
Other fandoms you're in: Here's a list.

Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: Tumblr and Twitter, although I should warn you that I tweet mainly in portuguese.

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: because I saw one of Liam Payne's picture in weheartit and was totally starstruck-ed on that picture of him, i looked at one of the tags in the picture and saw the one direction tag.

LATE!!!!!!!!! but friend me because I have no lj friends that are into 1d. actually lj is kind of a dire place for me rn and I want to spam these dudes' faces but I don't want to spam to no one.


Name: k8
Age: 20 (old enough to be tried as an adult when I inevitably murder 1d for wreaking such havoc on my life!)
Location: california

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: well I, like everyone, resisted because as a twenty year old college student, I was too old and too cool for boy bands. too bad this boy band is full of a bunch of charming ass fetuses. also I was in a very vulnerable place during finals week and my friend linked me to genderswap fic and that was the last I saw of my previous existence.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: well I read a lot of fic because I like dudes doing it BUT I've probably reread play a chord the most so there's that one.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: louis tomlinson probably changed the empty cavernous hole in my chest to an actual heart but I mean really, how can you not love everyone? not a special snowflake in the slightest, I ship harry/louis. (it's my only semi-functional otp!!!!!!!!) also we don't need to talk about my harry/louis/liam feelings because I have them and they hurt a little bit. also also, ot5 is always the answer.
Favorite One Direction song?: STOLE MY HEART. I am a product of the 90s and that gay club anthem is probably the beacon guiding my very soul.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: probably the french question box interview. and the sugarscape interview about niall not being topless in the wmyb video. actually sugarscape is general is my lifespiration. they are paid to be fandom, where can I send my resume?

Fun fact about yourself: I am currently avoiding a research paper on inequality in egypt in favor of writing both woke up as a girl harry/louis.
Favorite trope: WHERE TO BEGIN. domesticity, for one. (they live together IRL they are asking for it) clothes sharing. sweet and beautiful UST. stoned sexual encounters. drunk sexual encounters. accidental sexual encounters. grinding. harry's hands. louis' ass. twee slice of life.
Other fandoms you're in: I can't handle more than 1 fandom at a time. fandoms consume me. this one especially.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: wellllllllll, currently I'm not really posting anything because my friends list is dead. (that could change though!) I "post" fic at locatives. the quotation marks are because I have posted 1 fic thus far. but have every intention of posting more.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: yes. avitium / rolyatetak (if you are going to follow me on twitter, somehow make it known who you are on lj.)

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


not even a question. louis throwing shade gives me life.
ugh the gif. just. ugh. <3

was gonna make my own comment and then i realized we might as well be exactly the same. (though i go to college in NYC and i've never watched golden girls)

but other than that. EVERYTHING about ziam and larry and conflicts and angst and sexual tension and jealous zayn and him being perfect and his fucking solos. gah.
oh and also about school work sucking.

we should be friends.

that's all :)

i am so late with this, fuck. anyway:

Name: betsy
Age: somewhere between 15-20
Location: south florida

How did you first hear of/get involved with One Direction fandom?: i saw them on this one tumblr and it was like--okay? but. yes. and then i basically willingly just went and looked for everything i could find and it's not been long, only a few months or something, but i haven't looked back since, i s'pose you could say.
Favorite One Direction fanwork?: elle's st peter's verse, always. i have a bunch that i love, but if we're talking all time favorite, then that. I THINK THIS FANDOM NEEDS MORE ART. but we have actual and real pictures and a new video every day as the boys take over the world, so. can't complain much.
Favorite member(s)/ship(s)?: harry/louis and liam/zayn are my otps because just ugh, why not? and my friend's ruined me into louis/liam and i just love love love love louis/zayn. for some reason, i can't ship harry with anybody else but louis, the stupid bastard.
Favorite One Direction song?: THIS IS A TERRIBLE QUESTION. but, uh, in taken harry's solo actually makes me just freak out regardless of how many times i hear it, and just the entire song, but i have a special spot for tell me a lie because of st peter's verse (and zayn's note, jesus christ). but i just idufgkbs;bfd over i want for some reason that i still haven't figured out. for the sake of not writing an entire essay on all of this, i'll just say i want.
Do you have a favorite video of the boys?: okay so i've no idea where the link could be but la boite could probably count, if we're talking ot5. fresh prince of bel-air rap and niall in a cardigan and 'careful not to show the nostrils' and liam and zayn fumbling with his line in the rap and just ugh yes god bless the french. any and all sugarscape, ever. for the sake of including a video, any video, all the videos:



Fun fact about yourself: there are none! i am so actually so dull that it's frightening. uh, the closest person i have found that's literally the exact same as i am is harry but he sucks, i hate him with a burning passion in my gut. i really really like oatmeal? i bite my nails, i like mint chocolate chip. i live like half an hour from miami but i've never met a celebrity. I AM GOING TO THE JULY 1ST SHOW THOUGH SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. THEY ARE LITERALLY COMING TO MY CITY, NOT JUST MIAMI. OH YEAH.
Favorite trope: doing actual tropes and not kinks too, cause if i included kinks we'd be here for the next week: cafe!au (cooking, baking, coffee -- just something of that sort and you've won my heart), idek if this could be counted but like--wasps? silly rich little white boys with their problems and all of that funny stuff. i like when they have to deal with the media and paps because realism and high school/uni!au. i like all of the AUs, it's a terrible habit but that's just how you can get to me.
Other fandoms you're in: the boys have kinda taken over my life, buuuuuut you can find my others on my interests on my profile. hp (h/d) was the only one i was somewhat active in, though. first time i've gone all-in with a fandom, this one.
What sorts of things do you post on your journal?: i mainly just post fic, but i want to post more. i just didn't even know there were many on lj in this fandom, since the focus is clearly tumblr. i'd love to have people to talk to on here, though, that'd be brilliant.
Do you have a tumblr/twitter?: tumblr & twitter. active on both. beware.


Favorite GIF (doesn't have to be One Direction-related): BUT HOW AM I MEANT TO PICK ONLY ONE:


sassy bitch

i try not to look at this ever because every time i do something breaks

MR HORAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING AND WHY

rdj is my baby
