attention directioners

Attn: Queer One Direction Fans

Hey y’all, I’m Sky, a student at Stanford and I’m doing a research project on One Direction’s queer fanbase. As a queer 1D fan myself, I know it’s important that we share our voices and ensure that we are heard; my project aims to add to this effort and help share our perspectives. 

Please fill out this survey if you would like to help! I will be using the responses to compile an overview of queer directioners and the experiences that queer fans have within the fandom. Thank you so much for your participation!!!  Also, please share this with any queer fans you know! The more responses I get, the more accurate representation of queerness within the fandom I am able to share! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to message me. I will be posting the final product here for those who are interested in seeing the outcome.

Thank you so much and all the love!!!

Exposing larries who hacked and stole our NARRY groupchat, threatened us, and violated us:

Me and my friends had an 50/50 members narry kik groupchat and we suddenly got hacked recently today. These narries threatened us before and we didn’t took any of it seriously, but now it is not a joke because they LITERALLY took our chat. Removing all of the narry shippers out of the chat, and claiming it of their own. How did they do that? By hacking into the owner of the chat, which was a friend of mines. One of the narries in our group invited us back into the group they stole, and we tried our best to tell them to leave. But all of the larries were admin and we couldn’t remove any. They began threatening to bomb us and harassing us with “kill yourselves” or “cut yourselves”. They called us disabled and retarded, many bad names. And all we wanted is our groupchat back.

The larries usernames are: serenahunty (threatened to bomb us and stalk our addresses), sadlester (told us to kill ourselves and cut ourselves), .okayalrightokay. (called us many names especially disabled ones.), and last but not least logan_5d (hacked the groupchat and into my friend’s account. This person was in the chat for awhile but we didn’t expect any of this to happen) (THERE WAS MORE LARRIES BUT I DIDN’T GOT THEIR USERNAMES.) I’m completely disappointed of these people.. very sad too. I hope this post gets all the attention it needs from directioners. This is seriously a fucked up mess, and my friends are so sad and stressed. Please like and reblog to spread this..

Sincerely, Lillian. xx..

ATTENTION ALL DIRECTIONERS!! MUST READ!!

Its time to stop the war inside this fandom.

its time to stop fighting over ships and your opinion.

As you can see the band is is breaking apart and if you really truly know you love them then help them.

Its time to save them.

when they already saved us.

All these rumors and hate are tearing the band apart.

their contract ends this year and if you want to keep the band together then stop acting stupid and spreading rumors PLUS sending people hate.

All of this needs to stop.

One young funny amazing band member said “real bands save fans, real fans save bands”.

i cant even think of the day that One Direction breaks up!

lets stop with this fucking bullshit.

lets tell the boys that we are really sorry and that we truly love them.

This isn’t a fandom anymore, because we dont support them, we are trying to control them.

i remember when we were a family. i never knew we were going to change into this.

Ask yourself, was it worth it sending hate to eleanor or sophia? was it worth it to send death threats to fans themselves because of their ship? 

WAS ANY OF THIS WORTH IT?

Because it isnt and its not fair to the boys.

the only way that this fandom is going to recover and the band to come back as one is if we start Over Again

Now we all heard harry say “ we love you one last time”

now for One Last Time lets help them and become the fandom they loved.

becasue these few Moments isnt the greatest.

Oh how much i would like to talk about how much i like what harry did or what louis said without someone attacking that comment.

Its time to stop the madness and actually bring this fandom and band back together.

because right now, writting this, i can barely think of losing One Direction.

if you arent scared about any of this, you should be.

ATTENTION DIRECTIONERS

Midnight Memories comes out FRIDAY JANUARY 31st! We MUST break the vevo record. Pass this along. Always REFRESH the video, NOT REPLAY!

Dear Directioners...

I just went through the One Direction fetus tag aaaaaannnnndddddd I’m kinda sad that everyone is like “OMG I miss fetus 1D so muchhhhh!” and kinda making it out to be like they don’t like the new 1D and Fuck Ya’ll cause Fetus or No Fetus, if you’re a Directioner, you love ALL One Direction. Every bit. Good or bad.

They grew up. Get over it. They are still magical gifts and not a single one of us know what they have to go through with being as famous as they are. Give them a break.

That’s all<3

Hi! I've recently started on the tarot, and I have trouble interpreting the spread as a cohesive whole. Like, I get the individual positions, but I find it difficult to link everything together. Do you have any advice?

In general, I think this is a skill that mostly takes time to develop - it’s hard to do! It’s story telling, merging and mixing the different elements of the reading to create a cohesive whole. I’m still working on it myself, but that’s part of what makes doing tarot so much fun.

I tend to break down the elements of tarot reading like this:

  • The cards - images
  • The cards - traditional meanings, meanings we develop over time with use
  • The spread theme - focus of the spread, areas of experience it speaks too
  • The spread positions - the specific thing that one spot hones in on
  • The question - what the person wants to know

To me, the most important piece is the question, the thing that the person wants to know about, get guidance on, dig deeper into. That question guides and influences the entire reading, the story you tell with the cards.

The cards are next: they’re the words, the building blocks and bones of the reading itself. They provide background, direction, and advice.

The spread itself, to me, is last. It organizes the story and gives order to the reading. You can have it pre-ordered with a theme and set positions, or you can develop and suss out them out as you go. There’s value and joy in both.

The story, the narrative of the reading, comes out when you combine these elements. Each one influences the other.

Things I’ve done to develop a cohesive whole, based on the advice of several books…

  • Start small. Pull 1 card and tell a story. Ignore the traditional meanings, here - you want to base it entirely on what you see in the card image itself. Mary K. Greer’s 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card suggests this. When you’re done, how does the meaning of the card fit in with the story? Does it line up, or add nuance?
  • Get a little bigger. Pull two or three cards, and do the same. How does each card flow into the next and create a narrative? What elements and images repeat card to card? How do the meanings build up a narrative? In her book, Marseilles Tarot, Camelia Elias focuses on this kind of storytelling in her readings. It defines her approach to the cards.
  • Within any reading, pay attention to directionality. Are two cards facing each other, or away? Is one looking towards another card (up, down, left, or right depending on layout), but it’s turned away? In general, I use the left = past focus, right = future focus method. Looking down tends to be looking inwards, while look up can be looking to something outside of the self (spiritually, goals, whatever). Benebell Wen’s Holistic Tarot talks about that, and it added so much to my reading style.
  • Combine card meaning with the card position. Have a positive card in a “negative” position? Ok, explore the more negative sides of that card. How can it be a bad thing? Maybe it’s something that shouldn’t be done, despite its apparent positivity. Or perhaps things aren’t as bad as the position (or card) might suggest.

The most important thing, to me, is to let the question guide the reading. Everything should come back to that, even if it ends up like, “Yeah, it seems like your focus shouldn’t be relationships right now… work is playing a larger role right now, so it may be a while til you find someone.”

(This has happened! It’s cool. I even had a friend come back to me a year later confirming a reading like that.)

After that, follow the narrative, the story. And practice! Practice helps.

Good gods, I hope this helps? It’s kind of long. Add your thoughts and suggestions, community! We all have different ways of developing our stories and cohesive readings.
