Directioners Threaten to #SuspendAnnaTodd Over 1D Fanfic ‘After’


And the Directioners strike again.

Seems like fans of the popular UK boyband One Direction aren’t too happy about Anna Todd’s 1D fanfic After.

The 25-year-old writer from Texas got a publishing deal for the fanfic, which hit over 900 million reads on Wattpad, and talks of a movie version have also surfaced.

“Oh my gosh I’m kind of floating on a cloud right now – I don’t think it’s hit me yet,” said Todd in an interview with Sugarscape.

When asked about her inspiration for the fanfic, Todd said,

I read a lot of books and i’m a One Direction fan – in case anyone hasn’t noticed [laughs]. It really started when I was on instagram one day, and I saw these little mini stories people were writing about Harry Styles, which was crazy to me. Then one of the girls I had followed on instagram put her story on Wattpad. I had no idea what that was, but I followed the link and it was this whole world of 1D fan fiction. I started reading all kinds of it, and then decided that I wanted to give it a go myself. I didn’t think anything would come of it though – it was just for fun!

The fanfic portrays band member Harry Styles as a womanizer, which isn’t sitting very well with Directioners. #SuspendAnnaTodd became a trending topic on Twitter August 8th.

It really doesn’t look like Anna Todd should step out of her house anytime soon. The Directioners might attack.
