Fans of One Direction are known for their loyalty to the British boy band. One Direction has a huge social media following, and woe betide anyone who upsets the One Direction fandom. One Direction members Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan, have millions of fans around the world. Those fans hang on every word from their favorites, they have a voracious appetite for One Direction news, and they snap up One Direction merchandise, art, and memorabilia as soon as it appears.
When the One Direction boys came together on the 2010 season of X-Factor, they would have been hoping for chart success, but they would not have expected to generate a new literary world. Who would have imagined that One Direction would fuel a fan-driven literary industry? Who would have imagined that One Direction fanfiction would even become a thing?
