OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS PERFECT

I got a reader mail today that said that I shared a lot of music that was so angry that it made her teeth bleed (a description I believe she meant fondly and in any case, I’ll take it as a compliment). But this won’t make your teeth bleed.
Open letter to Maggie Stiefvater, (or any other creator new to having a fandom)
Fandom is messy, I’ve been in quite a number of them and eventually they all hit the fan. There are fights and shipwars and people throwing around insults and to the extreme death threats. Bring in creators interacting with fans, and it seems like you can never win, you’re either wrong for not stepping in or wrong for trying to police us. We’re not kids we don’t need policing, just as you are a person with a life and should not be responsible to police us.
But you have a fandom and you have influence and a lot of young readers who really respect your view-of your work and your opinions- just as you have older readers who wont always agree with or care for your opinion on the matter. I’m not gonna lie it’s never gonna be easier to please your whole fandom at once, because at the end of the day we’re hundreds of different people. We know you’re human and make mistakes, we’re human too and make-a lot of-mistakes and I think that it’s fine if you want to take a step back after the Kavinsky debacle (fandom is draining and drama never really dies down). But you can’t just bow out, it needs a psa, which I presume sounds weird, but just let the fanbase know you’re gonna keep your distance stick to your blog and not engage in certain topics. Because without that closure the fandom-and certain people-are still going to hold onto your words as evidence to back their vile opinions, which you don’t agree with.
I didn’t post this explicitly, but yes: I have stepped away from fandom interaction, and keep stepping further away.
Both for external reasons — my presence complicates rather than clarifies — and for internal reasons — although I love seeing the fan art & reactions that my books inspired, spending time in the fandom also brings me right up against criticism of me instead of the books. And while I never considered myself a sensitive soul, it turns out it feels very different when a) you can’t participate in the conversation about yourself and b) you are one person and there are tens of thousands of other people. I’m not sure the human brain was ever built to handle such a mismatched relationship, that many connections. I reckon this is why celebrities move to islands and buy herds of elephants and hide under hats and scruffy beards.
I had vowed to never be that totally hands-off author, to keep being Maggie as earnestly as I could for as long as I could, but I’ve lost a lot of afternoons to bad feeling lately, as one of my recent posts confessed.
So please don’t take my lack of wrist-slapping over fandom behavior as unspoken tolerance. It’s just: I’m not the boss of you. You have no boss! You are the wild west. Be free. Be wild mustangs in the prose of the internet. I have sailed to the Undying Lands.
I’m going to go make some cookies.
