Totally agree. I went on holiday last year and had no internet for a week and have barely been on tumblr since. I still like 1D but I couldn't give a shit about their personal lives anymore haha :)
Same, I’ve just lost interest!
Una, it's awesome to see you all grown up and invested in real life, it really is more fun! I love the internet, but the best part of it is discussing and laughing about it at a bar with your friends over some beers <3 I was never a 1d fan (I study fanfiction though and I loved yours), I'm 24 so my fandom was Harry Potter a long time ago, but I know what it feels like when you don't need to wait for somebody on a broom to pay you a visit anymore. It's liberating and magic! GO AND BE GREAT, UNA!
Thanks ! It’s so strange how much things change when you get a bit of distance from it haha!
So what happens to Harry and Summer? How did you plan to end it?
Well initially it was going to end with them going to different colleges and it was gonna be all soppy like “they were each others first loves and they never forgot each other” yada yada, but then once I got into it I was going to just be unable to seperate them haha! So then it was going to turn out they endd up going to colleges quite near each other :)
You sound really bitchy when you say real life is more fun. Sure you didn't think like that months ago when you had no one but your followers to make you feel better. When friends didn't ask you to go out with them and problems with your dad. You're being so so selfish.
well I have other ways of dealing with those things now. How am I being selfish by not posting on a website and living my life? Listen to yourself oh my god
I abandoned my 1d blog too, I got into a lot of different stuff and realized how much time I wasted in 1d. Real life really is so much better. I still wish you would finish senior year, probably one of the best fics I've ever read.
I’m just not into anymore, I’m so sorry! :( I know how shitty it is to love an abandoned fic but it’s just not in my head anymore. But yeah, once you get into real life it just changes, 1D seem like a waste of my time now!
if you do leave tumblr will you be deleting this blog?? what will happen to the fics, are they posted anywhere else?? im sad now. :(
I’ll still keep my fics up :)
I could not agree with you more about how "real life is more fun" because it really is. I ran a big account on IG once upon a time and it was my life...but after a while it just wasn't the same anymore at all. Once you get a little distance from it all you begin to see new things and discover things and feelings that are beyond 1D. Its bittersweet. Real life IS more fun, it really is.
Yes, exactly!! Never thought I would see the day but it’s just so much better being able to focus on your real life and your own thoughts and feelings, and once you get a little distance you realise how strange and pointless it is to be so obsessed with their lives and how little all the dramas in the fandom actually matter. And yeah it’s bittersweet, feels like leaving a big chunk of your life behind! But I’m glad I’m kind of over it, distance feels good :)
oddly enough i feel the same way as you idk why but i think 1d are also laying low a little not doing as many interviews focusing on the tour I'm kinda just chillen with them not much else
I just think they’ve changed so much and they’re not the cute little squeaky clean boys I loved at the start and I’m just not so into it anymore lol
So... are you going to leave Tumblr? :(
I’ll still come on every now and then I think, and I’m gonna turn my other blog (harrysarse) into a personal :)
you are not into 1d anymore? i wish i could say that, i still stuck on them and i think i'll be stuck for ever, but congratulations for you, i mean i know the real life is better than crying over boys that you will never met or have a romance and etc i just wish you the best, and i hope you keep your fics here to ppl read bc they all are really good, you're a good writer
You won’t be stuck forever, I thought that for 3 and half years lol. I think a real life relationship helps, but as well as that I’m just not the same now and neither is tumblr and everything, the fandom and the boys aren’t the same people I loved in the beginning anymore so there’s just no draw now. Like I still love the boys and I still like their music, would still buy their tickets etc but they’re just not the boys I loved at the start and I just don’t need them now like how I used to.
One day you’ll get a little distance from it too, I promise, and it’s kinda sad leaving something you loved so much behind but that’s just the way it goes
Do you not miss writing at all? You're honestly the most amazing writer I've come across, would really really love to read more of senior year, love it sooo much :( x
I do sometimes, but I just couldn’t find the time or motivation anymore, but thank you very much :) x
Do you think you'll continue senior year?? It was my absolute favourite :( x
I dunno at the moment but it seems unlikely :/
