Ok please don't judge me because I'm a returning fan from a long-ass time ago...but please explain to me what ot4 and stan means? Like I know ot4 is the boys and Stan is like fan(i think) but why? PLZ AND TNX love you
Aw anon I wouldn’t judge!
OT4 is the foursome that is One Direction; Liam, Louis, Niall and Harry
Stan used to be stalker+fan, but now it’s almost synonymous with just fan (or, well, someone who’s really a fan)
So you we right about the meanings. Where do these terms come from? Well, like I said stan comes from stalker+fan and OT4 comes from OTP. If you haven’t heard from OTP either, it’s One True Pairing, or like your favourite pair. OT4 is then your favourite four people - Liam/Louis/Niall/Harry in this fandom.
Hope this helped!
