cause i’ve never been in a fandom that’s taken itself more seriously and also i’ve never been part of a fandom where the subject of fannation ( i just made that word up) had a stricter “no-fun” -policy. it’s like as long as neither the boys nor the fans have any fun everything is good.
i don’t understand it and i never will
the fans have fun shipping the boys: lets ridicule and cyberbully them
the boys have fun interactin on stage: lets built them the biggest one we can come up with so that they dont
the fans AND boys enjoy video diaries: lets get rid of them yeah?
oh so the boys AND fans like ot5 the most: cancelled
what else do the fans like? oh yeah acoustic versions and interviews: good riddance
oh the boys enjoy their privacy: lets film them 24/7 and also make sure they get mobbed at every airport and hotel yes pls
the band and fans have fun with a rainbow toy: LETS GET RID OF IT
oh, no drama is happening and everyone is enjoying themselves?: HERE HAVE A TWITTER RANT, NEW RUMOUR AND PAPPARAZZI OUTING
oh the boys AND fans still genuinely care about the MUSIC? lets only ask questions about their products then OKAY?
okay so now the fans AND boys are having fun by ridiculing their products?: LET’S RECORD AN AUDIO BOOK
this is not some tv show where one character you like has an arc you don’t agree with it
THIS IS LIKE A BELOVED TVSHOW THAT DECIDES TO KILL ALL THEIR CHARACTERS ALL OF A SUDDEN FOR NO APPARENT REASON AND FROM THEN ON JUST SHOWSA BLACK SCREEN FOR 45 MINUTES EVERY WEEK AND YET EVERYONE KEEPS WATCHING CAUSE “WAS THAT A FLICKER?”
