Stalking vs. Normal Fan BehaviorMy Chemical Romance, as far back as I can remember, has never had a normal fan base. The fans have always had a certain passion and drive for the band that many other bands cannot replicate and arouse in their own fans. This devotion has led to good developments within the fan base with such projects like #Sing it for Japan, a music video driven by mostly fan made creations. Yet amidst all of this are some controversial acts of devotion that have sparked a split within much of the fan base in what is right or wrong.Stalking vs. Normal Fan Behavior3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The controversial behavior in question started to appear more frequently during the band’s Black Parade Tour in 2007. Video footage of fans stalking them to their hotel is all over YouTube: fans screaming for them to sign things well into the night. It should come to no surprise though. My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade had sold 1,169,697 copies in the U.S alone by August 25, 2007. It was certified as 2X Platinum in the UK. By 2010, in t

What I think about fanfiction.Be warned, I might offend some people with this.What I think about fanfiction.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I'm still going to write it, you've been warned.
What I think about fanfiction.
Okay, so, some of you are probably thinking:
Well, why does she have to have an opinion about fanfiction that's so important that she's writing a journal about it? I mean, she writes it, it can't be too different from most other people who read/write it. Right?
So...I'm writing this journal because of all the really horrible things that have happened to MCR in the fanbase lately, the possible (I don't know what actually happened) sending of incest fanfiction to Gerard and Lyn-Z's house, and the stalking going on, and just...all the objectification.
Guys, this is wrong.
And I'm going to go off on a tangent here, and this is the tangent that might offend some of you.
Don't yell at me. It's my opinion, you can go somewhere and cool off and continue thinking what you think and liking what you like, if you want.

If you have already, i STRONGLY urge you to help out and do something about it! Raise awareness! You may be thinking, Why should we do anything? Why should we appologize for what other people are doing?
Because they can't do it themselves.
we need to apologize on behalf of the rotten ass clowns that claim to be fans.
these assholes obviously are hopeless low lives who have nothing better to do then disturb the privacy of people's homes, people who they say they are "FANS" of, and give them Incest fics, or whatever they did?!
It's sickening really.

Tips on Recognizing Smudged/Traced ArtTips on Spotting Fake Drawings | Samples of Fake Art | Commonly Stolen ArtworkTips on Recognizing Smudged/Traced Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rather than take the time to learn how to draw, some people take a photo, smudge it in Photoshop or add a filter, and call it a drawing. It's a ploy for attention, and sadly, it usually works. Photos smudged in a couple of minutes often get more attention than original fanart that artists spent hours on. I've seen people feature them in their journals. I've even had people request that I interview a smudger for the group. We can't keep people from smudging photos, but we can stop giving them attention. Here are some tips to help you identify a fake drawing.
If you're unclear on the difference between referencing and tracing, here's a good post from artist-confessions on Tumblr: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9yti2wELq1r7ogo4o1_1280.jpg

Gerard and Mikey recently participated in a photo shoot with Illuminate Parkinsons to raise awareness for Young Onset Parkinsons. Prints of the photo will be sold online with proceeds to benefit a traveling gallery show documenting individuals with Parkinsons. Learn more about the cause here.

I love the concept (and Gerard looks great) but I wish they didn't have Mikey make that weird expression. Definitely doesn't do him justice.

I don't know how many of you have seen this, but it's adorable and FRANK. Look at Frank's hair! It's so much longer and fluffier and gah finally. I was so mad when he shaved his head, and so was my Frankie xD
Also Ray's arm. Look. It's just like...he has a perfect arm.
And Mikey's back to silent poker face, holding the kerrang award importantly, yes c: Looking fashionable xD
And Gerard is adorable. Hand gestures and brown hair and all.
Blog for facts and theories about the break-upNormally I don’t post rumors or theories in this group, especially at a time like this when it could cause false hope, but some very interesting information has surfaced (and will probably continue to surface), so here’s a blog post to hold it all. Will edit it when more important information is found. Please remember that most of this (except the Dewees interview) is speculation and has not been verified at the time of writing this.Blog for facts and theories about the break-up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Edit: Mikey Way tweeted about the incident:
I want to thank everybody who helped make the past 12 years an unforgettable journey for me. Family, friends and fans- Thank You
For the record, my relationship has absolutely nothing to do with what just happened. They are completely seperate
Well, I guess that nullifies the "Warner was trying to kick Mikey out because of bad PR" theory, but the legal issues could still be a reality.

One year down, many more to goWell…another school year has ended for me. I'm officially a "freshie"…yay for freshman Lena. I made it through middle school, also known as possibly the worst three years of your life, and I came out of it with a plethora (fuck, I love that word) of fandoms, bandoms, friends, and best friends.One year down, many more to go2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And there was also a new cat (Henri), a goldfish that died due to chlorine poisoning, two tortoises who I treasured, my Frank's dog who I adored until the very end, a praying mantis, and an ill-fated miniature rose plant named Gerard.
And I got more watchers and friends on dA, mibba, and tumblr, and worked my butt off, and almost completed the longest piece of literature I've ever written, Doves. And I started playing Sims 2 and 3 and fangirling and coming out of my shell and embracing myself sometimes and shunning myself others, but I made it.
Sheesh, it's been a long yet short three years. And this year was the shortest yet longest of them all…so many things happened.

MCR...To everyone that heard the news that MCR broke up, I just wanna say, stay strong.MCR...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
MCR has helped so many people, probably even yourself, in so many ways.
For me, they helped me get through even the most difficult times in my life.
Their music took my pain away. They made me happy.
And they will continue doing so even if they're gone.
So just hang in there everyone, and don't forget what MCR has done for you.
Even though new music won't come out, hang on to what they've already done and continue to feel what you have before.
Don't give up and don't give in to the sadness.
MCR will be there for you forever... I promise.

I need your help with a project, which I will dub Project Batman.
Less than a week ago, a very good friend of mine died of cancer. He was 16, and his name was Cory Batz. I called him Batman, just to tease him, but that name really meant so much more to me than just a joke...he was very important to me, and I miss him with all my heart.
I would like to make a video for the song "Cancer" by My Chemical Romance, and dedicate it to him. I need your help, though.
Below, I have broken up the song lyrics, and numbered them individually. Any person participating will be able to choose one line from the song; if you'd comment below for the line you would like, I will reply ASAP, letting you know if the line is not taken. Once I have given you permission for your line, you are to take a picture of yourself, featuring the line in the picture. It doesn't matter where the line

I've Never Been More AmazedHonest to God, you guys have rendered me speechless. And I almost always have something to say. You guys have just blown my mind so many times in such a short period of time . . . I'm shaking and it's really hard for me to type right now. You guys make me wanna cry . . . not sad cry, but happy cry. You guys are the most amazing group of people I've ever met, and I wish I could meet every single one of you. And I don't like meeting new people! I'm an introvert, I stay locked in my room, on my laptop. But if I could go around and give each and everyone of you a hug, hell, I'd do it in a heartbeat.I've Never Been More Amazed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The amount of effort and love you guys are putting into this project can't be matched. The MCRmy fanbase is still the best fanbase . . . no matter what anyone may say or believe. A couple of assholes may have nearly ruined it for us, but this, this is what the MCRmy is really about.&
InspirationLife can be challenging. Especially to those who have forgotten about and stopped nurturing their Creative Spirit. If you've ever looked at the accomplishments of another and said "I wish I could do that... but I'm not that creative," you are not alone. The danger comes when you say it frequently about most people you meet... and believe it!Inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The truth is, we are ALL creative beings, and no matter how little you've been using your creative abilities, you can be better!
Creativity... it's tough work. It's fun. We love it. But it's still hard work. To be creative on demand is even harder. Banging our heads on the paper won't help. Contrary to what people think, being an artist isn't easy. Sure, we love out work but it's still work. There is inspiration all around us. We just have to be able to find it and see it. We need it to fuel out passion. There are also tools to help. A sketchbook. A digital camera. A nice pair of walking shoes.
This is just how I work. Everyone has to find t
The best early birthday present ever.So, I got home from school today and saw a package at the door and just about had a panic attack, because it was a gift from radioactiverose42, an early birthday present, and it was a surprise and I LOVE surprises.The best early birthday present ever.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I opened it and read the lovely card and made myself not open the actual present until I had finished and then when I pulled the present out, I made a lot of extremely weird noises (my sister can attest to this, she tried to calm me down).
Let me show you what this lovely, amazing girl got for me.
Yes, it is a signed picture of Frank Iero, original copy, with a Certificate of Authenticity and I'm literally dying over here. He touched it, oh my gosh.
So I'm giving a huge thank you to her and you should give her love, too. This is actually only my second MCR merch, believe it or not, and I'm just...so psyched. auuggh <3
New Doves today, yes!
