We always knew The Hiatus™ would be a challenging time for us, but one thing we were never prepared for is Liam Payne's withdrawal from social media. Well, he's been gone for a week or so, so we're naturally freaking out along with every other One Direction fan.
On the plus side, at least the fandom's enthusiastic response to the #WeMissYouLiam trend has filled a void of sorts.
Here are the best responses to his absence, some of which made us miss him even more, and many of which made us want to send a gift basket to the person behind the computer:
The initial trend was kicked off after fans spotted he'd gone MIA:
A lot of people were pointing out how off-the-scale adorable he is:
There were a lot of missing poster mock-ups:
We mean, a lot:
SERIOUSLY A LOT:
And there were also a fair few Finding Nemo mock-ups:
A bunch of people admitted they were feeling rootless and impatient about his return:
Many were offering suggestions of a return to normalcy:
But others were pointing out their approval that he's using his break properly:
Even though they miss his humour gracing their timeline:
Along with his perfect, dazzling smile:
OKAY COME BACK NOW, LIAM.
