Aww! Thank you! :)
Aww thank you so much for this!! I had to go to the doctor this morning and I was feeling kind of blah, and this cheered me up. ♥ You have a great day too, anon! :)
I actually keep getting asks like this, probably once every few weeks. I’ve just been ignoring them so far, because I figured it was a question that didn’t reeeally need answering? But apparently not. Not to be rude, anon! It’s just, y’know, I haven’t posted anything One Direction related in about six months (aside from that one picture of Louis’s deer tattoo) so I figured it was sort of obvious. But, to be fair, I don’t think I’ve ever really talked about this publicly, so it makes sense that some people might be kind of wondering what the deal is.
Basically, no, I don’t! I mean, I don’t DISlike them, but I definitely wouldn’t describe myself as a fan anymore. I guess I’m still vaguely curious about some of the stuff they do (I still follow people who post about them), but as time goes on I feel like I’m caring less. It was just that the fandom was stressing me out, at first, and that made me take a step back, and then that resulted in me gradually losing interest over time. And honestly, I had a lot of fun in the fandom, but…I really, really needed to leave it. It was just way too much for me, in various ways. I never made any kind of announcement because at the time I started to back out, I didn’t know it was gonna be permanent, and by the time I realised it WAS, it felt a bit late to mention it and I was never comfortable with the idea of turning it into some big official thing…
But, yeah, that’s how it is. Anyone who’s still holding out hope that I might one day start blogging or writing fic about them again…it’s not gonna happen, I’m sorry! And I’m sorry if this response sounds harsh in any way - I still have some residual frustrations with my experience of the fandom, I guess, and it wasn’t exactly a clean break for me. :/
Oh wow. Thank you! This kind of startled me a little, but in a good way. ♥
Not at the moment. :( I just don’t have any ideas and I’m REALLY bad at trying to force myself to write when the inspiration/motivation isn’t there. It’s kinda stressing me out, but it’s probably just a weird little phase…it’s definitely happened to me before.
If you’re who I think you are, I’m really glad to hear from you and to know you’re back on Tumblr! I’ve definitely thought of you every now and then over the past couple of years.
Thank you so much, this message really means a lot. Especially at the moment, because I actually haven’t been doing terribly well. But you’ve managed to brighten up my morning a little bit, so, thank you. ♥
Well, I’m not writing any at the moment but I do hope to write more in the future! Unfortunately I just haven’t had the motivation (or inspiration, really) for a while now. I once went like six months without posting a story though so I’m trying not to worry too much about it. Sometimes I just get stuck in a rut like that, and real life is a little bit hectic at the moment which isn’t helping!
I do, actually! A whole bunch. They’re here. :)
Sure! That sounds interesting, I hope you find some people who can help out.
…This is like, one of my most favourite things anyone has ever said to me.
I’m publishing it so I get to keep it. :) Thank you bb!
