anonymous asked:

hi! I don't want to sound rude at all or anything, but what has Ian Somerhalder done that's brought on the negativity? again, not trying to seem like a dick, just looking to be informed. thanks! (:

I’m so sorry this took me 10 years to reply to I got it this morning but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had the time to respond until now. Also, pls don’t feel bad for asking a question you’re totally fine! I’m on mobile at my aunts house so this isn’t as good as it would be if I could like sit down and type a response so I’m going to do the best that I can, here goes:

-When he started dating Nikki he was at a convention and he said he needed viagra to shoot DE scenes because apparently Nina is just so gross. Like come on dude, we all saw how obsessed he was with her, it was a little extensive at times (i.e. staring at her boobs during interviews). Yea, he sure as hell never needed viagra with her lmao bitter much, Ian?

-He also said that Elena’s contribution to the show was “banging the brothers and now they’re better people for it”. I mean the dude straight up slut shamed a female character for having sex with her boyfriends. (Meanwhile his character has literally fucked every female character that’s ever been on the show)

-also when a fan asked if we’d ever get to see a delena wedding he said “I’m already married.” Apparently he doesn’t understand the difference between real life and television.

-Yelling and berating a group of like 10 fans that were just asking for autographs, literally making a girl cry. He legit screamed at her for asking to take a photo, it’s on video and he gave this long ass speech to them like “THIS IS MY DAY” and then when everyone called him out on it after they saw the video online he made this Instagram post with a ten paragraph caption (full of grammatical errors bc he’s an idiot) about how great he is and how he did nothing wrong because he’s amazing to his fans. (Because screaming at them for wanting to take a photo with you because they look up to you is treating your fans so great)

-A few weeks later another video was released of him doing the same thing again

-he’s such a child he can’t even be in the same room as Nina. Example: the past teen choice awards he had a con going on so they rescheduled the entire convention so he’d be able to attend the tca’s, but then he blew it off. Nina was the only one that showed up and accepted the award that they had BOTH won all by herself. Dude can’t even face his ex girlfriend who is perhaps one of the most reserved and mature women I’ve ever seen and has a new boyfriend like come on you’ve both moved on and she left the show, you can’t even stand on a stage with her for 2 minutes to thank your fans for endlessly voting and giving you this award???

-One time he liked a photo Nina posted on Twitter and then claimed he was “hacked.” (Even though he insists that they’re friends and there’s no bad blood but he can’t like a photo she posts on social media that’s just too far lol) and apparently when someone hacks your Twitter they just like someone’s photo and then do nothing else lmao even the cast of the show (Matt Davis) were making fun of him for it bc it was such a lie

-his foundation is bullshit. They’ve legit never done a single thing and most of the donations go to him personally so now he has a 3 million dollar home in Venice thanks to his fake love for animals. Also, the people that donated thousands of dollars with the promise of a phone call with him never got it. He’s been investigated by the IRS like ten times already.

-he legit gets in fights with 10 year old girls on social media just take a look at his insta it’s all there. Some 12 year old made a comment about Nikki once and he straight up responded and flipped out at her and everyone was like wow okay she’s a child probably on her moms phone and you’re a grown man like come on grow the fuck up. And he’s done this multiple times to multiple girls. What kind of 36 year old man feels so threatened by a little kid that he’s gotta put her in her place? Once again, GROW UP.

-he’s super inappropriate with underage girls at conventions and makes comments about their “boobies” (his word not mine)

-made a rape joke about a month back when someone asked why Bonnie would ever sleep with Damon so he said he’d “get her drunk” bc when you’re drunk you can’t consent

-only takes pictures or interacts with fans if he’s being paid at conventions otherwise he refuses and yells at them

-he also lied about his relationship with Nikki. Someone once said it was kinda fucked up that he would date his ex’s friend and he responded by saying that Nikki and Nina weren’t friends and only met twice, which is a straight up lie. The two ladies made a video together for this campaign about health insurance, they hung out tons of times (there’s photos), Nina was literally at Nikki’s first wedding a few years back and the couples used to go on double dates. It’s his life and he can do what he wants, but the man just constantly lies about everything it’s ridiculous. Like even if they were friends who cares why do you feel the need to lie about it just to explain yourself to some random commenter on the Internet???

-his ego is so big idk how he can even walk down the street without it weighing him down the dude is obsessed with himself. He has a contest going on right now where you can win a dinner with him and Nikki and literally JUST TO ENTER you have to pay 10,000 dollars lmao

-there’s so much stuff it’s impossible to list all of it but that gives you an idea. For more stuff just check my anti-Ian tag it’s got everything that’s ever been posted.

-overall he’s a disgusting self obsessed misogynistic piece of shit who thinks he’s gods gift to women when in fact he’s nothing but a creepy narcissistic ass hole

There’s a photo set of scary Easter bunnies (costumes humans) and one of them is too scary to reblog. Legit made me tear up a lil in fear. So this is the symbolic representation of that post because I ain’t reblogging scurry costumed bunnies.

tips for people who have just started journaling??

yay time to share my journaling tips :o)

collect scraps: my favorite things to collect are tickets, tags, price stickers, labels, and other colorful bits and pieces. this stuff may look like junk but will look cool once you post it on the page.

invest in nice journaling supplies: if you have nice pens and markers for journaling, you will feel more obliged to use them (therefore you’ll journal more hehe). i wrote a post recommending journaling supplies here!

invest in washi tape: colorful tape can be expensive but it looks awesome when used in journals. if the craft store kind is too expensive for you, here’s an ebay listing for a bunch of super cool tape for cheap! i’ve ordered it so i can assure you that it’s legit hehe

buy stickers: stickers are like cheating when it comes to journaling. they’re like small pieces of art and color that you don’t have to draw/write yourself >:-)

use photos: photos look awesome in journals because they’re colorful and usually have interesting content. if you can’t print out your own photos (expensive or no printer), then…

cut out photos from magazines: i like to find old magazines and destroy them. i have a huge stash of photos i’ve cut out and i paste them into my journal when need be! you can find old magazines (or even books with photos) at goodwill or check your local library or dig around your basement/attic :>)

look at other people’s journals: probably my most important tip. like anything, journaling is a skill you have to learn, therefore you need to assimilate a bunch of info about it first. if you’re just learning how to journal/doodle, look at other people’s journals and (i’m about to tell you a SECRET) copy them. as long as you’re not showing your journal to anyone/posting it/selling anything then you can learn from others by imitating what they do >:o) and then eventually you’ll have enough skill to create your own original work!

sorry for the long post! hope that was helpful :-)

ALRIGHT beliebers its time to get down to business. Where Are U Now has been nominated for ‘Song of the Summer” at this years VMA. Yes i know this award will not go to Justin BUT its still a song hes featured on and as we all know, Justin’s finally releasing a single after 3 years. If we are unable to get our shit together and help him win for a song hes FEATURED on, then we cant expect to win for his actual single. Its been 3 years since Justin’s released any music and so we’re all a little rusty but its time we get back to work and get into the flow of things, he truly deserves this guys. There is also a huge possibility Justin will be at the VMAS performing ‘What Do You Mean” how amazing would it be if he left knowing WAUN won an award? So lets get down to it. 

Here are the rules. 

You can vote manullay here: http://www.mtv.com/ontv/vma/2015/song-of-summer/
OR  you can tweet “#WhereAreUNowVMA”You can only vote up to 12 times per day after that your votes wont count. Retweets count as one of those 12 votes, so you can either tweet the hashtag 12 times, or if youre too lazy you can retweet other peoples hashtag. Justin just tweeted the hashtag so u can legit go to his twitter and retweet it.

A few things to remember!

Make sure you are tweeting ‘#WhereAreUNowVMA’ and not “#WhereAreYouNowVMA”
Since you can only vote 12 times per day on an account, make sure to use all your accounts that you have!!You can also vote on instagram by using the same hashtag and commenting under your photo so you dont have to post a photo 12 times! Even if youre busy today, try and vote at least once, all it takes is a retweet, its really not that hard and takes like 2 seconds! 

Please guys, we have to win this, idc if the award doesnt go to Justin, but we need to win this so he knows we’re here. We need to take our power back so lets go!!

i'm sure no one legit thinks jen and lana hate each other. they seem too nice for that and i think it's terrible that people would want to spread that image. but isn't it just that they're not close off-set friends? like lana is obviously super close with bex, emilie, and sean and you can see that with how she interacts with them on social media, what she says about them in panels, all of the photos she posts of them. but you never see that with her and jen. did they used to be closer...?

Yes hateful people do legitimately push that Jen hates Lana and that this is evidence that Jen was “forced” because they both walk away from each other after the hug.

Nate Maloley Imagine: Kissin On My Tattoos.

Hello my name is Carly. So I wanted to request an imagine if that’s okay.. The story I had in mind was you and Nate have a long distance relationship while he’s in LA she thinks he’s cheating then while in her car the song kissin on my tattoos comes on and later that night nate tells her that she is the only one he wants kissin on his tattoos you can add more details but I think that would be kinda cute……

_______________________________________________________________________

Warning: Includes a super sweet Nathan Maloley and may cause extreme feels.

Key: (R/TN) = Random Twitter Name

       (Y/T/N) = Your Twitter Name

Y/N’s POV:

It’s never easy dating a growing celebrity, especially an attractive, male, up and coming rapper like Nate Maloley. Yes, I am blessed enough to have such an amazing, talented, caring, kind, and of course attractive, boyfriend. Believe me, I never forget how attractive he is, especially, when the girls he is constantly surrounded by point it out. Sometimes it’s so hard to look at some of the pictures he takes with fans. I know most of them are innocent but, sometimes I wonder if he’s ever tried to get with one of them. They’re all so beautiful, and they’re prettier than I am for sure. I even wonder sometimes, why Nate hasn’t left me already for one of the gorgeous fans he meets.

For the past 2 months, Nate and I have been in a long distance relationship. We’ve been together for a year, but when he decided he wanted to spend more time in LA to expand his career, there wasn’t anything I could do to stop him. Of course I wanted to be there with him, and I would be soon, but I had to finish school here first. I had one more month to go and then I could go out to LA to be with him again. Although he was beyond upset, Nate totally understood that I couldn’t drop everything I’ve been working so hard for, just to go to LA. 

After I woke up, I got ready for my day. After showering, brushing my teeth, doing my hair and makeup, and getting dressed, I sat down to eat my breakfast. I picked up my phone, went on twitter, and searched skatemaloley on twitter, something I caught myself doing often since Nate left. I would look through the pictures Nate took with girls and compare myself to them. I knew it wasn’t healthy, but in some weird way, it was addicting. 

As I was scrolling through I saw a picture posted by one of Nate’s fans. His arms were wrapped around her waist and his face was nuzzled in her neck. They definitely were too close for my liking. I tried to blow it off as an innocent photo but then I started seeing all these tweets about the photo and toward Nate and the girl in the photo. 

(R/T/N): OMG!! @_bethhh_ You are so lucky! You guys look like a legit couple!

(R/T/N): How was at the after party you guys @_bethhh_  @skatemaloley ;) 

(R/T/N): How steamy did things get afterwards ;) @_bethhh_ @skatemaloley ;) 

The more I read the tweets the more my anxiety kicked in. Nate wouldn’t cheat on me…would he? I decided to close out of twitter, finish my breakfast, and give Nate a call.

It felt like the phone didn’t even ring when Nate answered.

“Hey Lil Mama.” His phone floated through the phone. 

“Hey babe!” I said smiling, trying to sound cheerful. I didn’t want to lead Nate into thinking anything was wrong just in case I was being paranoid.

“What’s up?” Nate asked.

“Oh nothing. I was just eating breakfast and thinking about you.” I said as I giggled.

He laughed, “I was thinking about you too baby. I miss you so much (y/n). He said, his tone getting sadder toward the end. 

It made my heart hurt to hear him sound sad. Maybe I was being crazy, he loved me way too much to even think about cheating on me…i hope.

“I miss you too baby. I can’t wait to be with you again. Only one more month and we will be together.” I said to him reassuringly.

“I wish it could be sooner.” Nate said, sounding a little happier than before.

“Me too babe, me too.” I replied.

“I’m glad you called (y/n), but I have to go to a stupid meeting. I’ll call you later tonight?” Nate said to me sounding annoyed and disappointed.

“Sounds good Nate, I love you, good byeee.” I said dragging out the “bye” in a flirtatious manner. He loves when I do that.

“I’ll talk to you later lil mama, I love you too.” He said, hanging up the phone. 

It wasn’t long before my mind started filling with questions. Was he really going to a meeting? Did I hear a girl in the background? Was his “I love you” real? All the questions flooded my mind and made me sick to my stomach. I decided I would tweet and then just relax. Tweeting usually helped soothe my worries, it was sort of an escape for me in a way.

(Y/T/N): I know I shouldn’t, but sometimes I have to wonder if he loves me.

(Y/T/N): I just have to know, who’s that girl…

It wasn’t long before my twitter started blowing up with RT’s and Favorites. I also got some replies to my tweet. Most of them were from Nate’s fans who knew I liked to write poetry and just assumed they were sneak-peaks of poems I was writing. However; I did get the occasional hate filled tweet. 

(R/T/N): Omg @_bethhh_ @(Y/T/N) is indirecting you and Nate, jealous much? 

(R/T/N): Haha at the indirect tweets from @(Y/T/N) about @_bethhh_ and Skate are hilarious.

@_bethhh_: @(R/T/N), maybe she’s realized someone can take her man.

The last tweet really through me over the edge. Of course Nate wasn’t tagged in any of them, because the fans would never insult me if they knew Nate would see, but I know Nate has my tweet notifications on so he’ll see my reply to the girls at some point and see how they’re acting.

(Y/T/N): Not tagging anyone, you know who you are, but no I’m not jealous and no one is taking my man. Just writing some poetry my loves.

After I tweeted that, I just sat around my house and waited for Nate’s call later. I was getting pretty hungry and the food in my house wasn’t very appealing so I decided to drive to chipotle and get some lunch. When I got in the car, the song “Kissin On My Tattoos” by August Aslina came on. I love that song so much. It always reminds me of Nate and Nate would always play it for me. That inspired another tweet from me. I pulled out my phone and went on twitter.

(Y/T/N): Really though…he only wants one girl kissin’ on his tattoos. ;)

That tweet really made my phone blow up. The fans that ship me and Nate were loving it like crazy. It made those few girls shut up for a bit. I picked up my lunch, went back home, and decided to sit on my couch and watch some T.V. 

Nate’s POV

That meeting felt like it dragged on forever but I was finally out. I pulled my phone out of my pocket to call (y/n/) and I saw I had tons of twitter notifications. I saw the things (y/n) tweeted and I was really confused. Did she think I was cheating on her with that Beth girl? That was some random girl who asked for a staged photo. Why was she trying to act like we were a couple, or that I cheated on (y/n) with her?

I decided I would tweet something and then call (y/n).

skatemaloley: cant love anyone else like I love my baby…@(Y/T/N).

skatemaloley: Still much love for the fans though…wouldn’t be where I am without you. <3 

I knew the fans would be shocked because I was never one to tweet about my relationship or put my business out there but I felt like it needed to be done. I clicked on (y/n)’s name in my phone and called her.

“Babeee” she answered in a cheerful voice. She was probably napping.

“Hi baby. Did I wake you?” I asked her.

“I was dozing off but it’s okay because I’ve been waiting for your call all afternoon” she replied. That made me smile. I loved that she waited up for me.

“ I saw your tweets babe” I said, wanting to get right to the point.

“Oh, you saw those? Yeah I’m working on some new poems and-” she said before I cut her off.

“ I know they’re about that picture with the fan baby. I wanna clear things up with you. I don’t want you thinking I have eyes on anyone else but you.” I said to her.

She hesitated a bit. It was an eerie silence. I could tell she was embarrassed or upset. “I just, you guys looked so close in that picture. You looked like a real couple, it made me nervous and-” she said to me. I cut her off again so I could explain.

“(Y/N), you should know I only have eyes for you and I will only ever have eyes for you. You’re my everything and I would never do anything that would compromise our relationship. You mean more to me than I could ever even put into words” I said to her.

“Awe Nate” she said back to me in a cooing tone.

“That one tweet was true though” I said smirking, even though she couldn’t see me.

“Which one?” She asked nervously.

“You are for sure the only person I want kissing on my tattoos” I said to her in a seductive tone.

She giggled at me and said, “Yeah, I assumed that.”

I heard her yawn and could tell she was tired. It was getting late for her anyway and she had classes the next day. “I’m gonna let you get some sleep baby” I said to her.

“Okay. That sounds good. Call me in the morning?” She asked.

“Of course lil mama. I love you, sleep tight” I whispered into the phone. She loves when I whisper to her. She finds it soothing.

“Goodnight babe. I love you too” She said. I felt like I could see her smile in that moment. Her beautiful smile that I fell in love with when we first met. We both hung up our phones and I decided to tweet one more thing.

skatemaloley: Goodnight my angel…sleep tight beautiful…@(Y/T/N). <3

Y/N’s POV

I heard my phone go off telling me I had a notification. I looked down to see Nate’s tweet. I unlocked my phone, faved the tweet, retweeted it, and tweeted him back.

(Y/T/N): @skatemaloley <3

I plugged in my phone and laid in my bed. It was nice going to sleep knowing Nate really loved me and I really am the only girl he wants kissing on his tattoos.

The only photo of Jemma I’m posting from Comic Com ❤

anonymous asked:

Could it be that Stylesunseen is not a hacker, but a plant? Isn't it too convenient that she posts pics of Harry in HC just as Louis would be headed off to London? If she could hack at anytime, wouldn't she hack photos of them together?

There are no “hackers” when it comes to One Direction (except that one time Niall’s IG was legit hacked and we saw how that played out) and all that account does is steal photos from various family members that they are friends with on Facebook/other social medias. At this point it’s pretty clear that tptb are okay with the role the account has and what they have access too otherwise they would have been shut down.

This person literally slut shamed bryanna or however u spell it for working w playboy bc there was a comment saying Someone hoped she posed for them in 2015 and sHe replied w “never” and op was like THEN WHY IS SHE STILL ON THE PLAYBOY APP?! Um bc she signed a contract allowing playboy to use her photos? They now belong to them??

THEN she harassed her on Twitter and Instagram, assumes Bryannas gifts should level Ashton’s of flying her places as if that’s totally plausible since he is u know, in an internationally renowned band and she’s a regular LA model.

AND then got mad bc she posts pictures of where her and Ashton go (as if people in relationships NEVER do that! The audacity!)
and then she gets confused And mad bc Bryanna deletes the photos. Like she gets fucking harassed?? I’d delete it too bc it’s not worth being harassed.

then when they go to a drive in and watch American sniper (BOTH OF THEM) they’re concerned about why she went bc it’s all Bryannas fault….like what kind of double Standard for ash and her are yall creating smh.

Now she gets mad bc Shes blocked ?? Like?? You legit dedicAted A LOT of time to find receipts and half of them Aren’t even good ones. Or they’re hella old from years back. Like yall quick to defend Michael’s old misogynistic tweets but jump on her ass smh once again a double standard for her and your faves

Granted Bryannas done some nasty things like that video and liking a rude ass fatphobic pic on Instagram and that should Be addressed but not by doing shit like this. This is exhausting.

Plus, their defense about pulling receipts is omg if u look at the other side of re fandom everyone’s up Bryannas ass! Like no? I’ve never once seen a fan up Bryannas ass they all know about the video and refer to her as fatphobic. That whole post exposing Bryanna is a mess smh.

thisisevenharderthannamingablog  asked:

I would like to express appreciation for your voice of reason when it comes to OUaT creators vs social media. The fandom in general seems to have zero perspective on this issue.

Thank you. I do think when you’re “in it” over on twitter it can be hard to connect to how meaningless it actually is.

Eddie has said that it gets to him, so he smartly stays away.  Adam says it doesn’t bother him so he engages.  If you ask me, he’s very good at it and he keeps a level head, even when dealing with people insulting and attacking him constantly.  (I always question their methods. If they want something from this guy – to change the story to fit their fantasy—why are they all so awful to him?) Personally, I think it’s been great lately; Adam is acting like he’s 100% done in placating people who complain (including a few idiot CSers who whine at him constantly. So embarrassing) and try to drag him into shipwars on twitter.

There is no doubt that the size of the OUAT fanbase is a feather in A&E’s cap when it comes to the network and that’s why Adam stays so present on twitter. There is something to be said for having passionate, committed fans and very few shows can boast it.  So I don’t mean to downplay the importance of fandom.  It’s why they spend all the money to go to SDCC, and why they did a premiere last year and why there is so much merchandise and why we actually get a DVD/Bluray release when they don’t bother for every show. Because there are people committed enough to engage and spend $$$s.

There are a few things that we, as a fandom, can do to, constructively, use social media to get the right people’s attention on CS. It won’t change the story, but it’s easy and it can change and shape promotion of the show. The first thing is to retweet, like, favorite, reblog, etc etc any Captain Swan/Hook/Emma related post on Facebook, twitter or Tumblr from the official onceabc and ABC accounts.  High engagement on official posts will not go unnoticed. (I’m thrilled that we’re reblogging official onceABC posts to a high number. That’s great!) I have a twitter for this purpose, to tweet once on show nights to get counted in the Nielsen social rankings and to retweet the official stuff.  That goes for legit media too. If Access Hollywood, TVLine, EW, Eonline, ETonline or TVGuide (and I could do an entire post on what constitutes a legit entertainment outlet and maybe I should before people start getting upset about what the Examiner says…) tweet a story/photo re Captain Swan, go like, fav, reblog, retweet that original tweet from the outlet.  Let them know how popular coverage of CS is and then click through to the actual article or video on their site. (always click through, don’t just read on tumblr and keep going!) That will let them know there is demand for coverage of those two characters and they will seek more interviews with the actors and ask more questions of the creators.  

Again, it won’t shape storyline, but it could increase how much they use CS to promote the show.  And that’s how social media can work in our favor.
