Every time I see that ship name I think it's about a talking cucumber.

It's a weird Christian kids thing, but you were in the right ballpark.

I'd hate to have it only refer to tinhatters, because that'd be like Johnlock being identical with TJLC, for example. I think it's because all the 1D shippers are firmly having their imaginative pretense in place :)

Yeah. I am in Stucky fandom and was in McShep and...yeah. I do think it gets used more broadly.

I really don't know. Must ask my 1D researcher buddies.

It may well be there...

Yes, this. Like, I will sometimes use the fandom name and pairing name interchangeably, especially if the pairing is the most popular pairing in the fandom: like, I would often casually say I was in "Kradam fandom", even if I labelled my fanworks as "American Idol S8 RPF". And as the boys moved away from the show, it broke even more down into that, when there was a distinct difference between "Kradam" (Kris/Adam) and "Glam RPF" (which tended to be [or was exclusively?] Adam/Tommy).

And while there were definitely Kris/Adam and Adam/Tommy tin hatters in those fandoms, I never associated the pairing names or someone saying they were in "Kradam fandom" or similar to mean they were a tin hatter? I'm not in 1D fandom so it could have a completely different dynamic, but based on my own history my assumption wouldn't be to assume anyone who said they were into Larry to mean that they truly believed.

As someone who's not in 1D fandom, when I hear about Larry I tend to think about the tin hatters, but as someone who's been in RPF fandoms, I have to assume the term covers more than just the "true believers".
