agree with your last response to that anon and to add onto that imagine if all the larries just disappeared. do they know how much things wouldn't be done ? we lead so many projects, voting, calling in etc. sad how we're diminished to this
I think all the boys would be in for a rude awakening if Larries no longer did stuff for them, and that’s why I think it’s so unfortunate that we continue to be treated like absolute shit after all these years. Louis and Harry have definitely done things over the years to show that they’re grateful for us (the bears were a huge one) and more recently, Louis took special care to emphasize how grateful he is for ALL fans, but stuff like what happened today with Gemma still happens from time to time and it’s really unfair and upsetting to watch.
We lead projects and charity efforts for the boys and the vast majority of us do our best to support all four boys, but especially Harry and Louis, so it’s frustrating that we’re ALWAYS reduced to the worst and most annoying among us. Yes, there are Larries who are annoying, invasive, and rude, but there are
also hets, Narries, antis, and other groups of fans who do annoying, invasive, and rude things, yet they never receive negative attention for it the way we do every single time. And yeah, Larries are a large and super engaged
segment of the fandom, so you probably see it more from us (the Larry comments on Twitter and Instagram are beyond fucking annoying and they need to stop), but it’s not
a coincidence that we’re the ones who are continually targeted with
these types of rants and rude comments. We’ve been abused for years by “the boys” (aka 1DHQ), their friends, their
family members, their beards, and other fans (who are encouraged by 1DHQ and the behavior of all those other people,
of course), and having been here for nearly five years and watched this happen again and again, I’ve gotta say that it’s really fucking exhausting and it does the opposite of motivate me to be an engaged fan, which is a damn shame.
I love how the lyrics of every song in DAMN. are connected:
“Is it wickedness?
Is it weakness?
Are we gonna live or die?” -BLOOD.
“Tell me when destruction gonna be my fate,
gonna be your fate, gonna be our fate.
Peace to the world, let it rotate.” -DNA.
“Don’t call me Black no mo’.
That word is only a color, it ain’t facts no mo’.” -YEAH.
“‘Cause most of y'all ain’t real,
most of y'all gon’ squeal,
most of y'all just envy, but jealousy get you killed.
Most of y'all throw rocks and try to hide your hand.” -ELEMENT.
“Feel like the feelin’ of no hope,
the feelin’ of bad dope.
A quarter ounce manipulated from soap.
The feelin’, the feelin’ of false freedom.” -FEEL.
“Tell me who you loyal to.
Is it money? it is fame? Is it weed? Is it drink?
Is it comin’ down with the loud pipes and the rain?
Big chillin’, only for the power in your name…Tell me who you loyal to.
Do it start with your woman or your man?
Do it end with your family and friends?
Or you’re loyal to yourself in advance?
I said, tell me who you loyal to.
Is it anybody that you would lie for?
Anybody you would slide for?
Anybody you would die for?
That’s what God for.” -LOYALTY.
“See, in a perfect world, I’ll choose faith over riches,
I’ll choose work over bitches, I’ll make schools out of prison.
I’ll take all the religions and put ‘em all in one service.
Just to tell ‘em we ain’t shit, but He’s been perfect, world” -PRIDE.
“This shit way too crazy, you do not amaze me…
I don’t fabricate it, most of y'all be fakin’.
I stay modest ‘bout it.” -HUMBLE.
“Lately, I feel like I been lusting over the fame.
Lately, we lust on the same routine of shame.
Lately, lately, lately my lust been hiding.
Lately, it’s all contradiction.
Lately I’m not here.
Lately, I lust over self,
lust turn into fear.
Lately, in James 4:4 says:
‘friend of the world is enemy of the Lord’.
Brace yourself, lust is all yours” -LUST.
“Damn, love or lust.
Damn, all of us’.’ -LOVE.
“Tell me what you do for love, loyalty, and passion of
all the memories collected, moments you could never touch.” -XXX.
“(I don’t think I can find a way to make it on this earth)
What’s up family, yeah it’s yo cousin Carl man, just given’ you a call man. I know you been havin’ a lot on yo mind lately and I know you feel like ya know people ain’t been prayin’ for you but you have to understand this man, that we are a cursed people. Deuteronomy 28:28 says, “The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart.” See family that’s why you feel like you feel like you got a chip on your shoulder. Until you finally get the memo, you will always feel that way. Why God, why God do I gotta suffer?
Why God, why God do I gotta bleed? (…) Goddamn you,
goddamn us all.” -FEAR.
“Don’t judge me, don’t judge me.”-GOD.
“It was always me versus the world, until I found it’s me versus me. Why, why, why, why?
Why, why, why, why?
Just remember what happens on earth stays on earth!
We gon’ put it in reverse.“ -DUCKWORTH.>
It’s like a tale about all the struggles that black community have to fight within itself.
Even more thanks to @sailorleo for this sparkling gem of a commission depicting our favourite Ruff Boi delivering one of the best lines of ‘The Suffering Game’ arc. (One of them, mind you; there were a lot.)
She is still taking commissions here for anyone interested.

The ‘Best Boy’ position is one of those weird position titles that always jumps out during the credits that most people have no idea what it is. Officially, our union now calls a ‘Best Boy’ the ‘Assistant Chief Lighting Technician.’The gaffer being the Chief Lighting Technician. And the best boy is the assistant to the Gaffer (or Key Grip) and in charge of the logistics of the department. While the Gaffer is on set lighting with the set crew, the Best Boy is working behind the scenes. They are in charge of coordinating and keeping track of all the equipment. Read: lots of paperwork. The Best Boy will run and schedule the crew (more paperwork). They are in charge when it comes to unloading of the truck, where to place the carts, company moves, and who will be on set and off set. In that regard, the best boy will often be in charge of rigging or de-rigging a set. It is an important and often very powerful position.
So where it gets to be a pain in the ass (as if it doesn’t already sound like one) is during big shoots - like night exteriors - where you need extra manpower and equipment. So let’s say we are doing a big night exterior on a Friday with condors (cranes with lights in them). Although we have our core crew of 4 Electrics, the best boy would probably need to hire an extra 4 crew members (to work a Friday night - good luck). He/she would also have to co-ordinate with production and transportation to get a 2nd generator as well as additional light and cable. What a hassle. Oh… the schedule has changed and now we are shooting the night exterior on a Saturday. Meaning he/she would have to cancel the 4 Electrics and hope they are available the next day, re-arrange all the equipment and drop off times. This happens more often than not. A good best boy is invaluable.
Since the best boy in essence runs the crew - it is the Best Boy who is often in charge of the hiring and firing. When I was starting out, I got a day on “Six Feet Under” (as a grip). I was in tight with the Key Grip and one of the core grips who got me on. But I never saw the Key Grip. I was not part the core ‘on set’ crew. So I was helping pre-rig a hotel. The Best Boy was telling us how to hang a big rag around the edge of a balcony when I (the new guy) chimed in that I thought it might be better to do it a different way than he suggested. Well, that was my last day on that set and I was never hired again by them. In retrospect as a young green day player I never should have said anything - obviously. I was scolded by my friend who got me on that show.
As far as big big big shoots. I was working on “Fun With Dick and Jane” and was hired as a day player for big night exterior to be in one of the condors. Out of many condors, many generators and much other equipment. We counted that we had over 25 electrics alone just for that day. Meaning the Best Boy had to hire probably 20 day players just for that day alone - and do 25 timecards as well. Ugh.
That same Best Boy hired me on a TV pilot. When I arrived on my first day, he announced he would be the Gaffer that day. The main Gaffer had injured himself the night before and was in the hospital. Often the Best Boy takes over for the Gaffer since they are 2nd in Command. But not always since they usually haven’t been on set at all and the logistics of a shoot can be such that they can’t just drop everything. But in this case the Best Boy was able to take over and Gaffed the rest of the show while the original Gaffer recovered in the hospital. And you can probably imagine what happened next. Afterwards, the DP really liked the Best Boy as a Gaffer and hired him to be the Gaffer for his next show which was… Avatar. The DP was Mauro Fiore and the Best Boy turned Gaffer was Chris Cullington. I still work with him once in awhile. A great guy!
Okay but what if Yuri and Otabek start a rockband in Otabek’s garage, and at some point the famous producer Viktor Nikiforov hears them and offers them a contract, but only if they can proof they get the audience excited more than J-pop singer Katsuki Yuuri?
@xylavie and I were talking (crying?) about a Rockband!AU for our favourite boys, and honestly I’m so in love. Best idea.
I’m not even sorry for my self-indulgent Otabek with glasses fight me
