So I’ve just returned home from Independence Day celebrations to read that apparently Panic! At the Disco is breaking up? I don’t follow the band closely myself, but I follow bandom enough in general to realize this is a pretty big deal. My main wonder at this point is how this is going to affect the fan community and the production of fanworks centered on the band. Something like this could spark a lot of fan speculation (though writing fiction or otherwise) on why the break-up is happening. Or it could lead to a major fracture within the fandom if there are battles between the fans of various band members, who may be to “blame”, etc.
It would be great if we could have someone within the fandom help document these events on out Panic at the Disco page on FanHistory.
