Is it me or the more ziam media linkage we get, more ugly sophiam signs pop up on shows? I don't remember so many people claiming to be in concert JUST for Sophia and worshiping her more than Liam and other boys. Well this fandom has strange tandancy to worship beards even though they never even uttered a single word and never addressed fans. Like WTF?? Maybe they are planted like those NB ones and Larry ones that Liam kept reading? What are your thoughts regarding this?
That’s a very interesting thought, my dear. Generally, I think we’re seeing unprecedented stuntin’ from 1D (which is really saying something). Like, there’s nothing we’re seeing or hearing lately that isn’t a calculated move. Now, I don’t mean that Liam and Zayn don’t sincerely wish each other the best (obviously). I mean the only reason we’re seeing and hearing it is for official narrative purposes. Because you know 1DHQ has always been really shady about certain band member’s public interactions.
So to your point, I say it’s very possible the pro-Sophia signs are yet another calculated move. We know management, working via update accounts, can directly contact fans. We know in the past they’ve promised to signal boost fan stuff to their followers (which sometimes number well into the hundreds of thousands). It’s very possible an update account suggested privately to fans that they bring pro-Sophia signs promising that they’d make sure the fans get high profile shout-outs. It’s totally do-able. Also, the Liam-saw-my-sign stories cropping up all of a sudden are very suspect–none of them have come with any receipts.
Liam’s profile has been noticeably higher the past couple of weeks and it’s continuing into this week. The cheating narrative isn’t off the table. Whipping up pro-Sophia sentiment would ensure the rumors of cheating hit especially hard and therefore will be widely discussed and provide distractions regarding the larger Zayn leaving stunt (same as babygate). Remember, this storyline could potentially suit the incoming and outgoing team’s agendas.
- Incoming Team: Use a cheating scandal as a means to further destroy the boyband image by portraying Liam–and by extension all of 1D–as grown up, having sex and having adult problems like fidelity and monogamy issues. It also ups Liam’s individual celebrity, which is good for him and the band. Buy 1D’s new single, Drag Me Down and be on the lookout for the new album, coming this fall!
- Outgoing Team: One Direction is a trainwreck with scandals popping off left and right. They’ve always been a mess. But we held it together for as long as we possibly could and led them to record breaking success. We are not incompetent. P.S. Liam is straight. What is a Ziam? Buy 1D’s new single, Drag Me Down and be on the lookout for the new album, coming this fall!
I think of all the potential Sophiam narratives, this would probably bother Liam the least. Although it would certainly cast aspersions on his character, at least it would lay the foundation for him to potentially be rid of her. And he will be rid of her sooner rather than later. We’re talking a matter of months now. Let’s goooo.
