It is the year 2065, awards season is in full swing. A lifetime achievement statuette is being presented to renowned egalitarian and producer/director Ian Somerhalder. The presenter is his lifelong friend and renaissance woman, Katerina Graham.
Backstage, he bumps into an old friend who he has not seen since his halcyon days working on the Vampire Diaries: It is Nina Dobrev.
They smile at each other. So much time and life separates them now. “Selfie, for old times’ sake?” he offers.
Her eyes widen, the delicate wrinkles around them crinkling. “Are you sure it’s… safe?”
“It’s been fifty years. I’ve been married to Nikki for almost as long, and I see pictures of you and a different young man every week. We are respected artists, legends some would even say. Surely we are past all that.”
They take the selfie and he posts it on twitter, assured that the world is a gentler, more mature place now.
He is wrong.
Within seconds the tweets pour in. “NIAN LIVES OMG MY FEELS!!!” cries @delenasarmpit. “I KNEW IT, I KNEW THEYVE BEEN SECRETLY TOGETHER ALL THIS TIME” rants @damondieswithoutelena.
Ian immediately posts a picture of himself and Nikki on the red carpet, in an attempt to control the damage, but within 5 minutes there are a thousand angry replies, most of them calling his wife of fifty years a stupid bitch.
One of them is from Matt Davis, who will swear upon all that is holy to other people that he was being ironic and you are just too crazy to appreciate it.
Ian realizes his mistake, but it’s too late. The nightmare is reborn.
Lately I’ve been thinking. What is it that makes anonymous people look at my blog and go “gosh she has a lot of self-esteem, we should attack it!”
It seems akin to attacking the strongest part of a structure. I mean I run a selfie blog for noodles sake… it’s just pictures of me.
What I’ve come down to is that either they look at someone who is relatively successful in life - who by all means should be worse off than them, and feel threatened, causing them to lash out…or they’re just not exactly master strategists.
Either way I’m happy they are going for me who has confidence to spare, instead of my sweet marshmallow fluff followers who deserve love and protection ❤❤
