Obviously, Zayn Malik's announcement about leaving One Direction caused a bit of a meltdown in the 1D fandom last week.
There was sadness,
the unforgettable memories,
the emotionally beautiful fanart,
the gummy bear people,
and the little sparks of hope.
And in the midst of the sadness, a new wave of support emerged for the remaining 1D boys (Harry, Niall, Louis and Liam...if you live under a rock)
or the OT4 if you're cool.
