I'M TOTALLY HAVING A MOMENT
i can’t even decide what’s better right now…that my ship won the after elton tournament or that it even existed in the firstplace! i mean LOOK HOW MUCH VALIDATION SLASH FANDOM GOT FROM THAT ENTIRE EXPERIENCE! afterelton wants weekly columns on its site now about general slash fandom! they created an entire message board for us to play in! come on, this is AMAZING!
i’ve been in fandom for 10 years…. this is the first time i feel like m/m fandom is being explored, embraced, researched, and acknowledged by people completely outside the fandom experience IN A GOOD WAY. usually when the fourth wall comes crashing and outsiders are paying attention to us, it always feels kinda demeaning, like the creators of our shows/movies/the musicians/actors we like etc all look down on the fans who get involved in fandom. BUT NOT TODAY!!! it’s just a beautiful moment for fandom in general, i think :”)))) i’m so happy.
and i’ll leave this (unfortunately) needed note here to my fellow sterek shippers: 98% of you are being super good times about this, but for the 2% being dipshit gloating assholes CAN WE PLEASE NOT?! respect other ships. don’t shit on someone else’s happy place. you wouldn’t like it if someone turned our sterek tag into a negative zone, so don’t do it to someone else, please :3 destiel shippers, it was amazing to even be in the same bracket as your ship! ty for the fun, and apologizes for the few fans who are being rude.
OKAY, BRB FLAILING FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT!!!
The History of Vhelton
Just a bunch of links explaining how this came to be and how it is still going on.
“Now Teen Wolf is shipping Vhelton. I wonder if we can double date with Sterek?”
Yeah, I think this is going to become a thing.
I also loved how Suzvoy made Erica in this gif mix EW so Vh1 gave it a smackdown for daring to kiss it (him?).
I asked After Elton if big sis (After Ellen) approves of their relationship with Vh1 or if they ship Vhelton too, but no answer. is sad
But it seems they are continuing in this vein look at this:

Don’t forget Vh1 and Barack Obama are BFFs over their Darren Criss gif war in which Vh1 won with the Stephen Colbert level shipping of American and Darren Criss….which I’m guess is their OTP…behind Barack and Michelle.
I wonder what Barack Obama thinks of their BFF hooking up with After Elton. I must ask them.
Edit: just did. Off topic, but what do you think of your BFF Vh1 hooking up with After Elton over their fanboying of Sterek? Do you support Vhelton? Tumblr needs to know.
Still no reply.

(cont'd) the comment about Sterek winning wasn't because I dislike the pairing. It's because I feel like after the way that AE, MTV and others have treated that it would be pretty gross for it to win. Like these people have exploited Sterek so much and for them to win would just be proving that to them.
I’m sorry. I had this whole essay of a comment below the quote and above the gif and then i added the gif and it just disappeared.
but basically Destiel has had plenty of the same jokes thrown at it by the cast. Sera and others have been downright exasperated explaining how str8 Dean supposedly is. Jensen thinks gay guys are “unmanly.” Misha is a human troll. They’ve exploited AND spit in the fans’ faces. Frankly, I prefer the harmless, somewhat entertaining antics of Vhelton/Hobrien/assorted TW cast pimping the poll to the JESUS, U GUISE ARE FREAKY WEIRDOS reaction I’ve seen from the SPN cast/crew. If exploited fandoms don’t deserve to/shouldn’t win, Destiel shouldn’t be on that poll either.
Check this out!
Congrats to all Sterek fans! WE did it! It was hard and in moments stressful, but Sterek won the AfterElton Tourney and we can now celebrate.
And congrats to all Destiel fans! It’s been a great round and if Sterek ever had a big brother it would be Destiel. You guise showed us what commitment and passion should look like. As far as I’m concerned all slashers are winners in this awesome, awesome Tourney!
Also, isn’t Vhelton like the best thing ever? And check this out: Vhelton is on the fandom wiki, forever a part of fandom history! (Though there are only three entries in the Teen Wolf category, we should totally fix that!)
I say this is our next project :) Or maybe a challenge :) Who can take over the fandom wiki and have the most history recorded XD
