Okay, what on earth is this batshittery that went down over the last 24 hours or so? Seems a troll took a PSC announcement that we couldn't repost the boys' blog pictures (which are usually of bowls of ramen, closeups of hands or Mogu) and turned that into "PSC IZ GONNA STOP ALL FANFIXXX OMG1!111!!!111!!!!1!!!!")

I saw PSC's actual announcement, and I saw the troll post, and it was a big, fat, "You've got to be kidding me." Honestly, why would PSC want to stop slashy fanfiction when their bands (well, with the exception of Kra) perform fanservice on stage all the time? If they really wanted no slash stuff, they would have said to Shou and Saga, "Hey, you two, can you throw a bucket of cold water on G3? We don't want any of that nasty fanfiction." Sheesh. This is a sign of how things can get WAY out of hand when they hit the Fangirl Grapevine.

And apparently, this resulted from one GazettE fangirl uploading a Global PSC Exclusive video to YouTube. Yeah, uploading "exclusive" material elsewhere is Never A Good Idea. Kids, don't try this at home, or it may lead to fangirl meltdowns.

I LOL'd. Then again, I was part of the problem for about... 10 minutes. I hit twitter the moment I woke up, got uptight over the stupidity and started tweeting my own complaints. Then I got smart, looked up the source and stated it as it was: BULL. SHIT.

The fact is that someone (new fan..?) saw the usual copyright infringement statements that are ALL OVER PSC... and freaked.

The fact that half of all the PSC fandoms took up arms about it was hilarious. I think they're still trying to trend #DontBanUsPSC

xD;;;

I saw some of the Tumblr stuff. It REALLY was getting out of hand at a couple of points. Honestly, why would a company in Japan care about what a bunch of people were writing about their artists in English? (Not as if it's about their actual lives - most Alice Nine fanfiction has them as vampires/werewolves/elves/vampires/aliens/vampires and vampires. I think I may be the only fanwriter who tr).

I really think this was the ultimate culmination of a lot of fan resentment that has been bubbling against PSC for some time (for instance, the anger at the Global Fan Club), plus the suspicion that they're clueless when it comes to their western fans, just going KABOOM all at once.
