THE GRIEF BEARD HAS TAKEN OVER
THIS IS THE DARKEST TIMELINE
Look y’all, I’m not in Teen Wolf fandom anymore, I cop to that. BUT THIS is a total shit show.
Fandom belongs to FANS and should not EVER be on a website that the powers that be create for their own purposes or in the control of a corporate sponsor (.mtv is not cute). Placing work on the website, ADMITTING to the desire to move fandom into an area where they have more control and removing the interaction fans have with each other to a space in which 1. you don’t hold the rights to your work and standards are set not by the community but the powers that be and 2. you’re removed from the traditions of fanspace is totally gross and inappropriate on their part. They aren’t the first ones to try this bullshit either, they’re just cloaking it in different words.
Please don’t fall for this and if you DO and are curious about it please carefully read the TOS for the site you are signing up for and learn about how they can and will use your content for profit in the future. Protect yourself, protect your community. Ultimately, it’s your choice but it should always be YOUR choice and YOUR experience and YOUR fandom. Bringing it out of the realm of fans, where you didn’t create the website, you didn’t make the rules, you can’t do whatever the fuck you want, is not okay. It’s not what fandom is about. Teen Wolf PTB aren’t PART of fandom. You are.
#THIS#look i know there are a lot of people for whom teen wolf is their first fandom#this is a case where y’all should listen to the people who have lived through things like this#fandom is for fans#by fans#fandom is where we create things away from the powers that be#where we can have our headcanons#our fic and fanart#where we can be critical about the show#or just concentrate on what we like about it#what mtv are doing has nothing to do with fandom and everything to do with control and money#fandom is ours#we make the rules not them#remember that
hey mtv, welcome to my crib! that’s me in the corner, that’s me in the spotlight, losing my religion
