I'm just so pissed that they are still just showing louis in clubs like the fans deserve better than this, I deserve better than this

Okay, I want to address this attitude and please hear me out:

I GET why you’re upset, I really do. It sucks to see Louis’ narrative reduced to “he parties, he’s seen near women” but I think you really need to take a step back and think about why you’re upset. Is it because Louis is suffering? Or is it because you feel entitled to seeing Louis only in situations you are happy with?

I am not trying to invalidate anyone’s feelings here. I understand how frustrating this whole situation is. But the fact of the matter is that Louis can do what Louis wants, and the fans don’t “deserve” anything. 1D is on a break. By all rights they could disappear off the face of the Earth during these two months and no one should be upset about that. It is not their job to be seen every day, or to perform fan service every day.

Yes, it is annoying as hell that Harry isn’t interacting with the band, and that instead of interactions we are getting Louis solo papped, but once again - they are on a break. If Harry was ignoring the rest of 1D on stage that would be one thing, but that’s not what’s happening. If Louis was off clubbing every night during tour and then barely performing that would be one thing, but that’s not  what’s happening.

Louis doesn’t owe us shit. 1D doesn’t owe us shit. This band is their job, not their life, and if they want to spend the entirety of the break doing fuck all they can and it’s not our place to say we deserve better.

I really do understand the frustration, and the annoyance, and the anger at this narrative. I understand wanting Louis and Harry to be free from clubbing and pap walks. I understand wanting Louis to be recognized for more the girls he’s surrounded by. But I also support Louis. I believe he had a say in this and this is what he chose. I believe that for the most part he has a decent time at the clubs he’s going to. And I believe that Louis should be free to do what he wants, business related or not, on break. 

The promo and fanservice we are getting this break is a gift, it is not something they are obligated to do. God knows that in the past we haven’t gotten this. I, for one, am not about to say that it doesn’t count or that they should be doing more.

If you wish to rant I’m here - you can vent to me because I really do understand that this is upsetting, but I won’t say I agree. I don’t agree. I can’t stand behind the statement that what 1D is doing right now isn’t good enough. I’m sorry.

To my punks:

Yo if anyone were to consider making me a Christmas drawing or something that would be cool. Like even just a fucking stick figure drawing would be cool. Or a selfie tagged with my url. I’ll send you something back. Or do the selfie thing. Or both. It might not be great but it’d be something. Literally anyone. I really need something to get me into the Christmas spirit.
