There are two things you can expect from each new generation: They'll know how to use computers better than their parents, and they'll find a new boy band to crush on. From the Wanted to One Direction (not to mention one-man-boy-band Justin Bieber), preteens in 2012 have plenty of sugar-sweet male harmonies to choose from.

But when it comes to semi-disturbing cartoon fan art, One Direction is the Internet's clear champion. Here are some of my favorite fan-made drawings of 1D, pictures that are sure to confound, amuse and maybe even haunt your dreams.

Continuing with the vaguely homoerotic 1D fan art, here they are playing spin the bottle. With each other.

As for this portrait of Harry Styles, that's just some quality artwork. I can Hazza?
