And now Liam Payne announced that he's signed a solo record deal with Capitol Records.

Happy to have signed to @CapitolUK. They have an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in their footsteps

(Just like his former bandmate Zayn, who already released his debut album.)

All of Twitter quickly went into an immediate RIP 1D meltdown:

Representation of 1D fandom: #OneDirectionIsOverParty

Me: "one direction is coming back they PROMISED US" Also me: "what if 1d is really over" #OneDirectionIsOverParty

But since I'm a half-glass-full kind of person, I'm still holding out hope that there will be a 1D reunion in 2017. After all, they are allowed to work on their own projects — it doesn't necessarily mean the end of times.

I STILL BELIEVE IN ONE DIRECTION AND YOU GUYS SHOULD TOO. #OneDirectionIsOverParty

Because One Direction is family. AND FAMILY MEANS FOREVER.

One direction will always be my home and family but I'm very excited to see what this chapter brings.
