the fact that even after all that shit ppl STILL dont get why some of us are upset, ASTOUNDS me. it has nothing to do with the other boys or pitting them against each other or who is more ~popular or whatever else certain stans think, its about niall getting shown and recognized in his OWN DAMN FANDOM for the accomplishments hes had, not only over the course of his career in 1d but all during the break as well.
we, as niall stans, have sat by for YEARS and let it go bc well, we pride ourselves in not taking shit so seriously and not being extra as fuck, but its 2016 and we are STILL seeing the same old shit day after day. its SO easy for someone else to say “oh lets not worry about the amount of attention each of the boys get lol” like thats literally NOT what its about? we dont care about twitter followers or the amount of articles written about him, its about the fact that we as fans have literally had to sit back and watch niall constantly get over looked and swept aside within this fandom bc for some goddamn reason, whatever he does is literally NOT enough to be consider an achievement. its never enough (haha no pun intended).
hes constantly dumbed down by everyone, besides his own stans, to be nothing more than a beer drinker who loves sports. like its 2016 for crying out loud, when will this stereotype of him end?
