You're not being a dick, and I know what you mean. And yeah, I guess I didn't have much of a point. I haven't had enough caffeine to be able to make coherent points yet today
I suppose I was just thinking about how it seems like some bands bring the crazy out in their fans more than others. Then again, I've only recently started really getting into bands in general, and most of my experience talking to people about them is on da web, and we all know how psycho people on da web can be.

I agree about the judging-craziness thing. I'm sure some people think I'm absolutely insane [over different things obviously, or maybe not hahaha ].

*shrugs* idk, I've been reading fanfiction nearly my entire life, and I don't really think it's that weird. It's just manifesting your fantasies and whatnot, for fun. Most of the people I know who actually write Belldom fanfic are quite sensible when it comes to basically everything else discussed so far.

Obviously there are those who take it way too far and start believing in it and look for "evidence" completely seriously, and scrutinize every shred of gossip and evidence… and as far as I'm concerned, yeah, that is creepy.

Eh…my point is, there's having fun and then there's delusional. And it applies to basically everything, not just Belldom, though that's the specific example I wanted to make because I'm personally involved.

Wait, people are talking about fanfics in general?

While I get that writing fanfics about a real band is a bit weird, fanfics in itself is a good concept imo. I used to write fanfics myself(about Star Wars though).

This does seem very true. I don't know what it is about Muse that brings out not just the crazy, but just fan involvement in general, I guess. There are several bands whose music I enjoy just as much as Muse, but I don't follow every single thing about them and know tons of frivolous information about them. I don't consider myself an obsessive Muser, but there's no doubt I am extremely involved in the Muse fandom in general, way more so than for any other band. It's rather odd, really.

Well I guess it could just be that Muse are a band with a huge amount of fans.

Therefore just a bigger chance in general of having more "intense" fans than a band with less fans. Doesn't have to mean that Muse brings something out of people that other bands don't. Every band bring something out of someone(this is sounding so weird), it's just a matter of numbers

I don't really think you can defy what a fan should/should not be like. The music effects people in different ways.

Personally, Muse saved me from getting into a very depressed state a couple of years ago when i had trouble at school with my friends. The entire summer of 2010 i listened to their discography religiously and it made me believe in myself again.

Also, as a musician, Matt has influenced me greatly. Hell, i would not even think about playing my guitar behind my head/making crazy noises, let alone actually doing it if it wasn't for him.

Regarding Belldom, yes its funny as a joke, but i don't take it seriously. I mean, come on now.

Eh…I just don't want people thinking that just because you write fanfics about the band doesn't mean you're creepy and actually think that way.. S'all I meant.

I agree with fanfics on things that are already stories, my friend wrote and entire 5th twilight book back in 2008 for example which was surprisingly very good (for twilight), it's when they become about really people that it is in danger of becoming strange...but obviously there's nothing against anyone writing down a good story!

I'm really only aware of what happens on the board. I don't venture into the dark depths of the internet where this fanfic stuff happens. It does creep me out. It's not the same as fanfic regarding a TV series or book, it's about really people, and it's really weird that people turn the band members into caricature to me. And I can understand having fantasies and stuff but, like, when it gets written down online it is in a place where the person concerned can read it and is aware of it, so it does get to people concerned.

And there's a reason why it's banned here...the obviously creeps the band out. Same with pap photos and other intrusions into their personal lives.

Also...twitter sycophants who respond to EVERY thing Tom tweets and comment on every one of his instagram photos. Don't get that either.

Fan elitism is bs. I think that's mostly dead here now though, but there was a time a few years ago when people would berate others because they were new or started liking Muse because of TIRO. And then SBH. And then when those people become the majority it was because of Twilight. As far as I'm concerned anything goes, until it oversteps a boundary set by people like the band members.

I actually know a person who tweeted the same thing to Matt over and over around 100 times, not even exaggerating.

Maybe that's common though, I dunno.
