Q:Along the same lines as the previous ask, if management have such control over the boys twitters then why don't they delete all these lyrics on Harry's twitter that you think have deeper meanings? You say that they are well aware of what the fandom thinks about things like that, so why would they let him post them in the first place? Isn't it more likely that the lyrics harry is tweeting don't mean what you think they do?
Or maybe it would look more suspicious if they suddenly went around deleting them, because then it looks like there’s something to hide and would prove that there was meaning behind them.
What looks worse?
1. Consistently deleting something from Harry’s twitter after it has been spread around?
2. Allowing him to tweet things which 50% of the fandom is quite happy to explain away?
Because the deletions would have to be so regular, they would start getting a rep for silencing the boys. The illusion that they (the boys) have total control over their own twitters is still really important, and if that means there are things they don’t always love, that still has the greater net benefit.
Just my thoughts.
ok ok fair point .. but i raise you liam tickling louis
OK BUT LIAMS TYING HIS SHOES FOR HIM
KISSING HIS FINGER AFTER HE HURT IT
BUT I WIN
LIAM IS LITERALLY STICKING HIS FACE INTO LOUIS’ ASS
I defy anyone not to do the same as Liam when presented with Louis’ ass.
Q:What is the bandana thing? I don't get why the blue bandana is so significant?
THANKS FOR ASKING, ANON! I want to talk about this forever.
Earlier this summer, some fans decided to start the Bandana Project — asking concert attendees to wear bandanas representing their favorite members of One Direction.
It’s unclear how successful/widespread it was — it definitely came across my dash weeks ago, but a lot of people have said that they never saw it before the recent chatter about it. But that’s not actually important.
Slightly more important but still not the main point: Harry wore a blue bandana during the August 22nd show.
Basically, were he participating in the Bandana Project, he would be declaring that Louis is his favorite member of 1D.
Fans made a connection between the bandana project and Harry’s blue bandana, and started speculating in earnest about whether it’s possible that he would have known about the project. Lots of people concluded probably not and that it was just a cute coincidence.
But then! WHAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT: Even after the fandom started talking about Harry wearing the blue bandana, he kept wearing it.
And then even after the fandom started talking even more loudly about Harry wearing it AFTER fandom discussion of it, he still kept wearing it.
He’s still wearing it. He wore it last night.
There is no fucking way that Harry doesn’t know about all the bandana speculation at this point. So either: 1) he doesn’t care if we think that he’s out there proclaiming with a blue bandana that Louis is his favorite, or 2) he IS out there proclaiming with a blue bandana that Louis is his favorite.
Or both. I’m going with both.
Also notably, he has not been wearing it on stage since that first time (except when he had it tucked into his back pocket for a bit). Yet he’s been wearing it constantly off stage, including in backstage photos taken shortly before showtime when he’s wearing the rest of his stage outfit. This makes me suspect that he’s been asked not to wear it on stage anymore, which would mean he definitely knows the significance.
In some people’s world, loads of queer-friendly fans have arbitrarily and randomly become fans of Harry Styles for no reason at all.
And in some people’s world, Harry Styles repeatedly stumbles into queer culture as arbitrary and random coincidences, over and over again, and also he is exceptionally stupid and ignorant and he understands nothing of his own actions. He doesn’t even know what rainbows mean. But he’s uncomfortable with rainbows!
Q:A while back I sent you an ask a while back about how me being a Harry and Louis fan was what encouraged my 15 yr old son to come out to me. This morning when we woke to see what Harry did last night we just sat here and cried all over each other. He just keeps talking about how much it means to him to see Harry up there wearing that jersey and making sure the millions of people around the world who love One Direction see where he come down on the subject of love, acceptance, support cont
cont from pt 1 and understanding. I have never been so proud to be a fan in my life, even if I had to take the day off to just bask in this with my baby.
I mean, sure, there are people in this fandom who stalk the boys, send their girlfriends death threats, vomit sexist/homophobic, racist hate speech all over twitter, post sexually-explicit comments on their IGs, harass their family members and throw shit at them on stage causing injuries…
But shippers. Damn, that’s a demographic we gotta bash.
