i think i made this post a few days ago but nobody paid any attention to it

anonymous asked:

Okay so this will be a bit long, I'm not sure how many parts it will be. I sent you an anon a few days ago which you answered so first off Thank You. Since others were sharing there stories I thought I'd share mine about how antis influenced my becoming a 1D fan. I was not aware of 1D until 2012 at least not consciously. Then they performed at the Olympics and I was like oh so those are the kids that sing that song I have a love/ hate relationship with, WMYB. I didn't think much of them beyond

2) not sure where the cut was sorry if I repeat - i didn’t think much of them again until Haylor, I didn’t know anything about Larry then and I still knew it was a fake a** relationship for publicity, I felt sorry for Harry and what ever songs she would attribute to him. I was actually following another PR generated ship at that time and could see some parallels. So here’s me continuing to mind my own business in blissful ignorance and then SOML was released, i loved it but had no idea it was 1

3) So I find out that SOML is 1D and I’m a little taken aback, i thought my boyband days were behind me (ha what a cruel joke) and here is where i begin to fall down the rabbit hole known as the 1D fandom, I’m reading some random article about fandoms and social media and they mention tin hatters and Larry and I’m like huh…? So of course I go looking and I’m reading all these posts about coincidences and “bromances” and I’m like wow these Larries are out there but then one made the mistake of

4) providing a link to a Larrie tumblr. I looked at the gifs, then tracked down the videos I watched it all. I also paid close attention to the other 3 and how they responded, that often revealed even more than Louis or Harry. There was just too much, sometimes they’d try and be subtle and sadly they just drew more attention in their efforts, other times it seemed they didn’t give af. I also noticed what wasn’t said, how things were worded and all the times they looked off camera or nervous

5-I think) I could see the shift in all of the boys, how much more guarded they became as time went on- antis will say it’s all the Larries fault and yet none of the other ships seem to have caused any rifts, something to think about. Whether you believe in Larry or not you can’t tell me that L&H are not friends, the MITAM promo should put that to rest, which begs the question, why the narrative that they went from bffs to loathing? Hmm? Everything is so extra and in your face with these two, wh

6) Everything is so extra and in your face with these two, why? In the matter of “babygate” why was it announced so early in the pregnancy? Most people don’t tell their family that early let alone the public. She is NOBODY, no one knew who she was or would even care if she was pregnant so it’s not like it would have gotten out. No official statement. Simon confirms, just shadyness all around. The most telling thing for me was the other boys silence. I mean those 3 were awkward AF. More than GMA

7) was that interview with Louis & Niall (he’s wearing a hat) N looked so uncomfortable, like he wanted the couch to swallow him up and L looked pi**ed after that I don’t think any interviews addressed it again. Hmm? Thats just some of the things that have pulled me into the 1D & Larrie fandoms. All because some journalist called you ladies and gentlemen crazy and antis linked me to you ☺ Contrary to the anti belief, I have not drunk the kool aid unwittingly, I am capable of forming an opinion

8) it’s just not the one they wanted me to. I’ve looked at both sides and continue to do so. Don’t think recent information and circumstances haven’t given me pause but for me most days I still am all in. I’m certain they were together and am like 90-95% sure they still are Like I said in a previous anon I leave room for doubt but the antis have yet to deliver a compelling counter argument. They are childish and vindictive even if I changed my mind tomorrow I’d stick with the Larries.

last finally) This side of the fandom seems much more welcoming to opposing views (as long as you are respectful) and more supportive of ALL four members of 1D which is ultimately why I’m here. To end I’d tell antis that I’m an old enough fan to remember when the late George Michael, Jonathan Knight, Lance Bass and Ricky Martin were “straight” maybe they should do some research and not believe everything they’re told.

anon i think i fell in love with you somewhere between this sentence:

“Contrary to the anti belief, I have not drunk the kool aid unwittingly, I am capable of forming an opinion. It’s just not the one they wanted me to”

and this one:

“To end I’d tell antis that I’m an old enough fan to remember when the late George Michael, Jonathan Knight, Lance Bass and Ricky Martin were “straight” maybe they should do some research and not believe everything they’re told.”

thank you for taking the time to send this. i’m always fascinated by how other people ended up in this fandom particularly when, like me, you experienced the het/neutral side of things first before going … wait a minute there’s something shady here (also i had the same experience with haylor that you did - knowing it was fake despite not being a larrie at the time [while also following another pr relationship *cough robsten cough*]).

Ryan first notices it when he catches a flash of reluctance in Gavin’s eyes as he aims his gold-plated pistol and fires off a round into the forehead of a cop in the middle of a heist. It’s barely a flicker of hesitation but it still happened. It stirs up some curiosity within Ryan’s mind, but he leaves it at that; nothing more than curiosity.

The second time is far less significant, but there’s no denying the fact that Gavin just knocked out a bank teller instead of shooting her. The others will assume that he’s saving bullets, but Ryan is close enough to hear the “I’m sorry” he mutters into the lady’s ear before clocking her around the back of her head with his gun.
