1D Rebranding and Eventual Reunion: GP vs. Fandom Perception

So I’m seeing a lot of tension an unrest over the way that the members of 1D, Harry in particular, are distancing themselves from the band as they embark upon their solo careers (ie, Harry, or whatever intern runs Harry’s sm scrubbing his twitter clean of 1D mentions). I know people are anxious about this, and I understand that anxiety, but I want to offer a different perspective: I think this could be a good thing, not just for their solo ventures, but for 1D as a whole. Hear me out on this one, long windily and under the cut.

anonymous asked:

Is it possible for BTS to someday reach the level of popularity and status that groups like BigBang enjoy? What would the members and the company have to do to reach that level?

Not only is it possible, but all indications show that they’re well on their way to the top of the top.

For a while there were some minor concerns that BTS were struggling to connect with their domestic audience. They were considered “global” stars first, which is all well and good, but idols can’t really survive without home-ground interest and support. But the Wings album and YNWA has proven that BTS are a juggernaut both in Korea and overseas.

I have never seen a boy band outside of the Big 3 companies to become so huge and so loved in such a short amount of time. They are growing exponentially as they continue to sweep the charts, break records, freeze servers, and make more fans with each new comeback. It’s almost surreal how it’s all unfolding for them. But seriously, they’re legends in the making.

I think it’s because I saw a comment on the Billboard polls yesterday, but honestly, the fact that Liam had announced his solo the first among OT4, but even within OT5, has possibly been one of the first boys to be working outside of band commitments, and not just that, but that Liam is the only one to not have any association with Syco and/or possibly any of the teams vis-a-vis OT, and has yet to have any music out…. I mean, if all of this seems to suggest something. 

Good Impressions - Stuart Twombly

Request: Can you do an imagine about stuart from the internship where your dating and Stiles comes to visit and you end up kissing Stiles thinking he’s Stuart please 😊
Word Count: 858
Warnings: Like maybe one swear?

A/N: Doing some Dylan requests since it’s his birthday! And I know they’re commonly referred to as the Stilinski Twins but doesn’t Twombly Twins have a nice ring to it? Actually scratch that it sounds like a weak ass boy band. Hope you like this one Anon!

Y/N’s POV

I stood outside my front door, my boyfriend in front of me, scratching the back of his neck and sighing.

“Are you sure you want to meet Stiles?” Stuart asked me, his hands coming to rest on my waist.

“Yes Stuart I want to meet your brother.” I laughed. “I’ve already met your father. Why are you so hesitant for me to meet Stiles?” I asked, my hands rubbing his shoulders lightly as he gulped.

“Stiles gets a little suspicious sometimes. He probably already reckons you’re a serial killer.” He said, smirking slightly as he finished.

“Maybe I am.” I wiggled my eyebrows at him, he laughed and kissed me quickly.

“No but seriously, do you really want to meet my psycho, hyperactive, pretty unstable brother?” He asked.

“For the 1000th time, yes.” I said and he nodded pulling out his phone.

“I’ll see if he’s free tomorrow, I’ll text you.” He said giving me one last kiss on the cheek before letting me go inside my house.

I had met basically all of his family, a couple crazy aunts, some friendly cousins, a confused grandpa, you name it, but for some reason every time I would bring up Stiles he would quickly change the subject or pretend he hadn’t heard me. We had been dating for four months, it felt weird to me that he never let me meet his brother. Finally though, he had relented, I just hope I make a good enough impression. As I changed into my pyjamas and flicked the TV on my phone lit up.

S: Stiles is coming up Thursday for a visit and would love to meet you x

Y/N: How could he not? I’m much more fun then you Stu XD

S: Now that just hurt my feelings

Y/N: YOU HAVE FEELINGS?!

S: Harsh. See you tomorrow ;) x

I texted a goodbye and climbed into bed, setting my phone on my nightstand and switching of my light.
Come at me, Thursday.

____________

Stuart’s POV

Stiles was wandering around being his usual restless self. I sat on the couch, mentally facepalming as he asked question after question about Y/N.

“What does she even look like? You’ve never told me! I haven’t even seen a photo and you’ve been dating for four months!” He said, coming to stand in front of me as I quickly unlocked my phone and showed him a photo of her. He let out a low whistle.

“Damn Stuart.” He said.

“Stiles.” I warned.

“Okay, okay, sorry. Now, how tall is she? Because she can’t be taller then you Stewie that’s just weird, and she can’t be too short either because then it’ll look like she’s your little sister when you go out together-” I cut him off.

“It’s not Stewie, it’s Stuart. We’ve talked about this before, now I’m going to the bathroom. If the doorbell goes, answer it because it will probably be Y/N.” I said, walking away.

“Got it.” He called after me.

“And please for the love of god don’t weird her out.”

____________

Y/N’s POV

I trotted up to Stuart’s door and rang the bell twice. The door opened and there was Stuart, in a flannel checked shirt with no glasses.

“Stu!” I exclaimed and kissed him, his eyes went wide.

“Y/N?” I heard Stuart’s voice from inside the house. Wait, what? I was kissing Stuart, how could I be hearing him? I pulled away quickly. Stuart and Stuart were now standing next to each other. “Why were you kissing my brother?”

Brother! Shit. I had officially just had a one way make out session with Stiles, so much for a good impression. I started to laugh.

“I thought you had your contacts in.” I chortled. “You always said brother, you never said you were twins!”

“We don’t even look alike.” They both snorted in unison. Oh my god. I moved between the boys inside the house and Stiles closed the door.

“Okay well then, I’m sorry Stiles for snogging your face off thinking you were my boyfriend. You wanna start fresh?” I said, sticking out my hand.

“Start fresh.” He agreed shaking it. “And for the record Y/N, you’re a really good kiss-” Stuart punched him in the arm. “Really Stewie? Was that necessary? I was giving her a compliment!”

I laughed again as the brothers bickered. I’ve definitely got to start calling him Stewie from now on.

Are you upset that he might outshine your faves like he always does? He is a talented human being who should be able to show the world how amazing he is. So stop acting bitter.
