That's the collective despair of millions of One Direction fans worldwide after the famed boy band reportedly decided to take a one-year hiatus so its members can focus on solo projects.

As a source told The Sun, "The guys have been together for five years, which is an incredible run for any boy band. They fully deserve to have at least a year to work on their own projects. There is absolutely no bad blood between them and they are all 100 percent behind the decision. It is definitely not a split and they fully intend to get back together at some time in the future. But for now it is the end and they go out on top as the world’s most popular music act."

Obviously, rumors are rampant that this spells the end for the "Drag Me Down" singers.

And One Direction fans, who basically run Twitter at this point, practically made the social media site implode with all their feelings.
