This post is the index of all the 1D Series I wrote on LJ these last few years. Most of them are about One Direction. If that scares you, LOL, Nothing I can do about it.

The first series was quite innocent, and started because I fell into 1D fandom in December of 2013, which happened to be right before the annual onslaught on One Direction birthdays in Dec., Jan., and Feb.  But don't worry, I don't track their birthdays that much anymore.  LOL.  These can also be found under the tag Birthday Series

The Birthday Series

Zayn Malik's 21st Birthday
- (I was so impressed by the fandom celebration of Louis' birthday a few weeks before, that I joined in.)
Liam Payne Post - (NOT his birthday, but I just felt like celebrating it. ;)
Harry Styles 20th Birthday - (This one actually was his birthday)
Niall Horan Post (NOT his birthday, but why wait?)
Louis Tomlinson Post (NOT his birthday, but I missed the first one, so I gave him a post anyway)
Liam Payne 21st Birthday (This time is was actually his birthday)
Niall Horan 21st Birthday (This time it was actually his birthday)

PS - The most important thing to glean from these is that the proper Howarts sorting for these boys is:  Zayn to Slytherin, Liam to Gryffindor, Niall to Hufflepuff, Harry to Ravenclaw and Louis to slytherin.  :)

The Weed Scandal Series

The second series came together rather accidentally.  It was examining the huge controversy that was the 2014 Weed Scandal that involved Luis and Zayn filming themselves smoking weed in the 1D tour van on the way to a concert in South America in the spring of 2014.  The video came to light at the end of May, several months later.  it is still a mystery how the thing was leaked.  These can be also be accessed through the Weed Video Scandal tag.

Prolog - Just the facts
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 1 - Young Love (How Sophiam was used as a distraction)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 2 - The Non Apology Apology (How Daddy Direction took the heat)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 3 - Putting the Chicken Back in the Chicken Dinner (Because "chicken" is NOT a cocaine reference)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 4 - All About Harry (He was just a poor, suffering innocent bystander)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 5 - The Irish Prince (About how Niall is the perfect prince)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 6 - The Rehabilitation of Zayn Malik (How to fix Zayn, who was the front man in the video)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 7 - LouisLouisLouisLou Why?? (How to deal with Louis, who instigated the whole thing)
Weed Scandal Aftermath - Part 8 - Rays of Sunshine (A visit to a children's charity)

The Summer 2014 Ship War Series

The third series was a general, catch-all series about Shipping, written in the summer of 2014. Looking back on it now, I have to say I miss those "original" ships a lot.  These posts can also be found under the Summer Ship Wars 2014 tag.

Part 1 - Tinhatting As A Lifestyle (Just the basics)
Part 2 - The Woeful Tale of the Oppressed Pop Princes (A Deep dive into the tinhat Management Conspiracy Theorizing)
Part 3 - Larry Vs. Elounor (The biggest of the ship wars)
Part 4 - Larry Vs. Ziam (A subtle ship war that shouldn't be a conflict, but is.)
Part 5 - All The Little Things (Elounor vs. Sophiam and Sophiam vs. Payzer and implied Sophiam vs. Ziam)
Part 6 - The Story of Zerrie (Zerrie vs Ziam)
Part 7 - The Rise of Narry (Narry vs. Larry)

Winter 2015 Shipping Update Series 

Oh, if only I had known what was about to go down when I wrote this in January and February of that year.  LOL.  It reminds me that it is time to write another shipping update series.  These can be found under the Winter Shipping Series 2015 tag.

1D Winter Shipping Update #1 - Larry vs. Elounor:  Going Up The Down Escalator
1D Winter Shipping Update #2 - Harry Styles:  The Winter Boyfriend
1D Winter Shipping Update #3 - Sophiam/Ziam/Zerrie: The Quadrangle of Doom
1D Winter Shipping Update #4 - Niall Horan: Whoa Nelly

By the end of 2015, Elounor was dead Hendall was rekindled, Sophiam & Zerrie were dead, Zayn had left the group so for all intents and purposed Ziam was dead and Nelly never really happened.  But Larry is like a toxic rodent that won't die.  By the end of 2016, Louis was a dad, and Liam should be one any day now.  But oh boy, so I need to write about the 2015 & 17 ships.....


Zayn's Exit:

So, an update on 1D Shipping. And I should start with a note that I find I've become a lot more hardcore in my Elounor shipping lately, so, yes, I have a bias and it shows. It's been six months since I did the original series, but much has happened since then. And LOL, I meant this to be just a quick status update. But no... Multi parts, here we come.

This One Direction Shipping Update post is going to focus on the eternal battle between Larry and Elounor. The second post will still be very Larry oriented, but will focus on Harry, and include a re-evaluation of Haylor, and the entire "Winter Girl Friend" concept and whether it applies to a new girl that Harry has been spotted around town with. But also taking a look at Harry's multiple statements made during the November Promo season in which he essentially shaded his own sexuality. Hints or Queer-baiting? Someday the world WILL know.

The third post will cover the realm of Sophiam/Ziam/Zerrie, though we'll see it all that fits in one post... And introducing... Zaughty. LOL.

Lets begin with Larry.

Here is a little teaser for part 2. Now adding to all this incredible drama - There is a new girl in town. Here name is Nadine Leopold.

Nadine is a Victoria's Secret model. And she's been frequently photographed with one Harry Styles.

So this post is long enough.

This is Part 2 of the 1D Shipping Winter Update. The first part focused on the Larry vs. Elounor Battle. This one will focus on Harry Styles and his mixed signals. Is he the Winter Boyfriend, or is this whole thing just NotThatImportant? Perhaps only time will tell.

Oh, and today, Feb 1, is Harry's 21st Birthday. It could be a very interesting day.

The Winter Boyfriend? Is it just a ploy to get more Christmas Presents? )

The Quad in question are Zayn Malik/Perrie Edwards, Liam Payne/Sophia Smith, and of course Zayn Malik/Liam Payne. Also known as Zerrie, Sophiam and Ziam.

If you recall from the Summer posts, Ziam is the second most Tinhatted ship in the 1D fandom. It is a DISTANT second. But because it is a huge fandom, that means it is still a massively tinhatted ship.

To recap:

Part One of the Winter series was an update on the eternal battle: Elounor vs. Larry.

Part Two was Harry Styles The Winter Boyfriend

*****

The QoD (Quadrangle of Doom))

Getting on to the matter at hand... Lets start discussion of the status of my two personal favorite 1D ships, along with Elounor, of course.

Ziam and Sophiam:

Yes, basically a Sophiam Pic Spam because I love them )

You would think that Ziam Shippers would be jealous. But no, they really don't have any reason to be. Ziam was all over the place too:

And this would be a Ziam Pic Spam because I love them too )

So, Sophiam and Ziam both bring really strong games to the table. To understand the current status of the QoD battleground we have to take a look at the current status of the remaining leg of the Quad...

****

Zerrie .

They're suppose to be engaged, right?

Those Bells You Hear Ringing Are Not Wedding Bells. They Sound More Like Alarm Bells... )

What, No Mistletoe?... )


Who is this Naughty Naughty Boy? )

Is there a ship name? Well duh, of course there is a ship name. Zaughty.

Perrie Stands Her Ground, With Danielle Peazer? )

So, anyway, of course all fingers are crossed that all is well in Zerrie land. Of course, there is a big caveat that NOBODY BUT PERRIE AND ZAYN actually know what is going on in their relationship. Because it is their relationship. For the rest of us, time will tell.

Damn this one went long... Sorry about that.

I may do a very brief thing on Niall, and the new Girlfriend rumors... It's all pretty Lolzy.

I almost forgot that I was going to do a post about Niall and his adventures in Australia. I think this one is short (for me) but kind of hilarious.

To recap Niall's assigned persona, he is the "good boy" perpetually single and lovelorn.

He is the professional 5th Wheel...

He's the most clean cut, and the one who has best retained the "boybandy" image into his early 20's.

 Poor Lonely Niall...

Niall's Adventures in Australia )

The fandom didn't have much luck at first. Even the tabloids were having trouble figuring out who the mystery girl was. The only thing anyone knew was that her first name is Melly. (Actually Melissa, but that wasn't known at first.) From the rumored first name, a ship name developed... NELLY. Of Course



The Story of Nelly )
