“Overwatch is actually a TV show on Netflix” AU

- Jack and Gabriel went to the same acting school and without Gab, Jack probably wouldn’t have gotten the role.

- McCree is a latino city boy and actually wanted to play Reaper, but he just pulls off that cowboy shtick too well!
- Genji, Amelie and Winston have to spent a lot of time in make-up, but Amelie is the only one complaining (“Why does she have to be blue? I don’t know either!”)
- Tracer is the one with the most Diva-ish attitude, but still very nice. She’s also an animal rights activist.
- Hanzo and Genji are brothers IRL. When Genji was given the role he insisted on his brother being casted, too. Hanzo was written very late in the production cycle. He got more screentime from Season 2 onward.
- Ana is a producer, directs most of the episodes and basically runs the project.
- Pharah does a lot of charity work and uses her new found fame to point at social issues. Ana is very proud of her.
- Angela is a methode actress, so she spent months before the shoot in university, reading up on actual medicine.
- Zarya is an olympian turned actress. Through the show she found her now girl-friend Mei.
- Reinhardt improvises most of his dialogue. No one know if it’s because he can’t remember the script or because he’s too lazy to learn it.
- Torbjörn is actually 5′8, so he has to be greenscreened into the scenes to look small (a la The Hobbit).
- Lùcio and Hana were only supposed to be cameo characters, but they became so popular that they kept appearing more and more after Season 2
- Bastion is made in CGI.
- Jamison is basically Mark Hamill: He keeps droping hints and spoilers at cons and in interviews and it drives the fandom insane. He’s also an active twitter user.
- Even though Mako is already fat, he has to wear an additional fat-suit to get the right look. IRL he’s a father of two and a former wrestler.
- Zenyatta is played by Doug Jones

It’s time to expose ExposingSMG for the lies they’ve been spreading.

I’m sure that everyone saw the post that @exposingsmg has made on their account in regards to “exposing” Camila Cabello and what not. However I recently came across a post that shows that this supposed “exposing” blog is nothing more than some fake attention seeking gossiper that’s simply riding on the coat tails of other people’s success. I was going to write a post in response to the vast amount of garbage they’ve said in their blog however I think it would be more interesting to talk about the so called “sources” that @exposingsmg supposedly has. 

What ExposingSMG does is pretty slick actually. She waits for certain fans to come on and talk about certain drama that’s been brewing up however she never claims to back it up. In fact its been proven that @exposingsmg has no real sources what so ever. But You don’t have to take my word for it. 

Credit goes to @factvsfiction and @exposingesmg for doing some awesome detective work in their posts. here is what they had to say in exposing this so called “exposed” blog for the nonsense they’ve been spewing out. So don’t be fooled by the stuff that this blog puts out. It’s nothing more than cheap trickery and false BS. This blog will even go as far as to come off as their own catfish! But don’t take my word for it. Give thanks to @exposingesmg and @factvsfiction for their nancy drew detective work. :

This part of the post is written by @exposingesmg and @factvsfiction


For a while now fictionvsfacts has said they were going to be posting something very important and yes, this is that post! This is a post that fictionvsfacts and exposingesmg have been working on this since we found old screenshots from the time period that the situation occurred.

We decided to finally start getting receipts and whatnot together to finally show you that exposingsmg will do anything, and we mean anything, to come off as a reliable exposing account. That includes becoming a catfish for a short period of time!

We’re sure you all remember the fiasco when exposingsmg supposedly met a Selenator on her trip to Yosemite? This Selenator (who went by the name Annie) later stated that exposingsmg showed her so much proof that she was convinced the blog was 100% correct about everything they’d ever written about. She was so convinced, she went out of her way to seek out accounts exposing exposingsmg and other Selenators who have argued with exposingsmg to tell them all about her experience. She had to go out of her way because her account with 11,000 followers was supposedly hacked (receipt below)



Before we go into the whole exposingsmg situation, this is where people who were confronted by Annie got slightly suspicious as well.

An account with 11,000 followers was hacked, but she never once gave out the old @? Let’s say the old @ was indeed SelenasAnnie…she had no friends to contact through Twitter and tell them she was hacked?

And don’t get us wrong, TJ (exposingesmg) was also hacked and struggled to regain her 16,000 followers, but she still had the same mutuals she had on her other account because they knew it was her, even if they were just following each other and hadn’t previously spoken in DMs or anything else. Surely someone with 11,000 followers wouldn’t lose all their mutuals and friends just because they were hacked? And wouldn’t someone have to be a very active Twitter user to be able to gain that amount of followers? Annie has been extremely inactive since getting hacked, particularly after the hype of her meeting exposingsmg died down.

Of course, these were all theories to begin with, so we didn’t have much to go by. However, exposingsmg did begin to slip up as time went on. Annie was arguing with a Selenator (delenaxari now thegomezrevival) about exposingsmg and how she was proven wrong on too many occasions to be taken as a reliable source of information about any celebrity in the industry. At the time of this, exposingsmg was M.I.A until Annie stated “let’s see if that’s true” (referring to something regarding exposingsmg.)  Check out the time stamp! 11:06PM (below):


And what happened in that same time frame?


Exposingsmg randomly comes online at the exact time Annie mentions her and she went out of her way to address the situation too.

Again, this could’ve been taken as a coincidence. A random account popping up claiming to have been hacked and making sure to tweet exposingsmg hate in the meantime before going to Yosemite and looking into someone’s phone screen and seeing exposingsmg herself, in the flesh, writing a fan fiction for her readers. A post that was postponed and Annie’s story was posted before it!

She must have felt very special to be seen as a more important story than an exposed post about the whole purpose of exposingsmg. Hm.

But all of the above theories were shrugged off as coincidences. You know, the kind of coincidences that occur in fan fictions, but that wasn’t surprising since exposingsmg’s whole blog was, still is and always will be pure fiction.


We’re not gonna just give one source of proof for something like this because we mean, as we’ve said, it could totally be a coincidence.

By this point, people still had many unanswered questions about Annie and exposingsmg. How did Annie even look at exposingsmg’s phone screen and see that she was indeed exposingsmg? Wouldn’t you have to be pretty close to someone to be able to properly read their screens? Especially since, when you’re writing a Tumblr post, the URL is displayed as very small and if you’re answering questions on Ask.FM, the username is not displayed at all. Either Annie was looking at exposingsmg’s phone screen as demonstrated below:


Or exposingsmg has really bad eyesight from all the fan fiction she’s been wasting the last three years writing and has her font set this large:


A lot of this meet-up seemed sketchy and just didn’t add up for many people, so one of these people chose to take matters into their own hands, they traced SelenasAnnie’s IP address.

*Note that neither of us, TJ nor fictionvsfacts, had any involvement in obtaining the information for this part of the post.  The information was sent to us without prior notice. To avoid any speculation, we have chosen to blank out exposingsmg’s SelenasAnnie’s IP address and not reveal the user who obtained this information since the only people who know are exposingsmg herself, us, and the person who was willing to be used a test for the IP address link.

Here are the DMs exchanged between them:


Notice how the reply was late and the person did not open that message until 10am, leaving no time for them to actually fake the email below containing the IP address. The time stamps are important, keep that in mind!

Annie’s message was sent at 2:21AM (probably while the person was asleep) and the IP was sent to their email as soon as the link was clicked on:


And with that IP, it was found that Annie lived in New York, where exposingsmg has said on multiple occasions where she lived.


We can see that Annie (Angela) uses Verizon and was in New York (specifically Brooklyn) at this time (also where Angela has stated several times she attended college).


This is the process of everything: Look at the time stamps (responded at 2:21 AM and the link was opened at the same time)

Of course, another coincidence could’ve been that they lived in the same state and used the same phone network and just happened to go to Yosemite at the same time and end up at the same hotel and met in the lobby. Right? Wrong! Annie has claimed to live in Arizona, a whole 37 hours away from New York!


Why would SelenasAnnie lie about being from New York? Could it be possible that she also lied about meeting exposingsmg? Or maybe exposingsmg lied and decided to build up a Selenator account for a few weeks to later meet up with. Why? To make herself seem legitimate of course. She thought maybe pretending to meet up with a Selenator would make her seem much more reliable.

Keep in mind, this was around the time accounts exposing her were constantly popping up. Perhaps she was getting worried and resorted to catfishing in order to convince her dwindling believers that she was truthful. I mean, even a Selenator said so! And not just any Selenator! The biggest Selenator on Twitter, exposingsmg herself!

Of course, exposingsmg caught wind of people suspecting her of posing as a Selenator and posted about it, using a completely different IP address website to prove that her and SelenasAnnie’s IPs were not the one that was traced, despite the link to trace her IP only being sent to SelenasAnnie and an IP was only traced when SelenasAnnie opened the suspicious link.

Not only that, she didn’t use a reliable website to trace her own IP, like the person who traced her IP address did. Why would she want to expose herself like that? This is when the girl who traced SelenasAnnie’s IP asked a girl if she could trace her IP in order to prove that the IP tracing was legitimate and she said yes.

Her IP address has also been blanked out because we have no intentions of leaking IPs:


And we know that this method is reliable because TJ was shown how to do it & used it to trace her own IP. It worked and found her exact location. Meanwhile, the site that exposingsmg used (whatismyip.com) gave the complete wrong location for her.  Try it for yourself.  It said fictionvsfacts was in New Jersey and they haven’t lived nor been there.

We mean, yes, it is possible to change your IP (the website exposingsmg used even provides a tutorial on how to do that), but only if you go out of your way to do it yourself! Annie - or should we start calling her Angela now? - was unaware that the website/link was going to trace her IP address so she didn’t feel the need to change it like she did when she changed it for her post on Tumblr.

She was exposed the day she posted about SelenasAnnie in 2014, but people doubted it and exposing accounts who had the information decided not to get into it as exposingsmg threatened legal action to avoid being exposed any further.

We, however, know we’re not breaking any laws since we’re not posting any IP addresses, and the information we’ve used was information exposingsmg has provided for us herself in her own posts about the situation as listed:

1. Exposingsmg stated on multiple occasions that she lives in New York and SelenasAnnie claimed to be from Arizona.

2. Exposingsmg posted her own version of the blanked out IP address, therefore making that information available to us anyway.

3. Neither of the people who wrote this post traced the IP address.

4. Exposingsmg made sure to tell us from both of her accounts that she would be spending time in Yosemite.

I’m sure there’s much more we can add to that part since exposingsmg isn’t as careful with her private life as she ought to be, but, in conclusion, exposingsmg created a Selenator account to seem legitimate AND that same account has been favoriting tweets posted by accounts exposing her and exposingsmg has been, once again, exposed as a compulsive liar. Be more careful next time, exposingsmg. Hopefully you don’t have any other hidden Selenator accounts that you stalk us from!

Anyone who goes to such great lengths to make them seem reputable is not trustworthy, reputable and just plain desperate. Now you might be asking “what about all those times she proved herself right?” This link (TJ’s organized list of posts) should do it for you along withthis link (other blogs like us) and this link (fictionvsfacts’s most recent post on how wrong exposingsmg was on attempting to have information on the lives of celebrities in Hollywood)!

Plus more posts to come from both of us if there’s any need to after this!


This is just the many examples of @exposingsmg lying and manipulating her followers. With fake evidence and “sources” who she claims are her own yet some how come from the same places that she logs on to. 

What you’re doing is lying to your fans. You fake the “sources” that you have and you resort to dirty tactics like lying and catfishing. 

There is NOTHING truthful about what you say. 

i think what amuses me most abt things like this is how little credit corporations give young internet users, in terms of their ability to scrutinize content. like, the large majority of active twitter users falls into the same generation that’s spent years avoiding scams and viruses in order to watch illegal dexter episodes on sketchy russian video sites, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Maybe, jst maybe, this sponsored tweet for a website that tells you abt how a controversial act of corporate greed & objective environmental negligence is Actually Good… maybe it’s not to be taken at face value

anonymous asked:

Did that "we support CS" hashtag trend with more tweets (than CS ruined OUAT) in the end, or is that a lie some CSers made up?

It never trended.  I think one would have to question if it had more tweets why it didn’t trend?  Either it didn’t have more tweets, or it got that number using bots that weren’t real active twitter users.  You have to remember that Twitter’s trending algorithms are more sophisticated than the standard “who is the hottest couple” polls that those bots are normally used in.  Where as the “CS Ruined OUAT” trend involved a lot of unique users (there were samples taken throughout the trend where people would count through unique users and not find any repeated tweets for blogs of several hundred).

Listen… I didn’t participate in the trend (people can look at my twitter account to see that).  But I also think there has to be some truth telling here.  The trend said “CS ruined OUAT”.  It didn’t say CSers ruined OUAT.  It was about the story.  A story which is dear and important to people and I didn’t participate because I didn’t want to hurt friends of mine who are dear and important to me.  But let’s perhaps stop acting like it was a trend directed at real people.  It was directed at a story.  

Whatever CS’s popularity with the GA is an unknowable thing without hard information that none of us has.  Ratings don’t tell that story.  Merchandise does not tell that story.  Cons don’t tell that story simply because people go to cons to see actors not romantic couples.  Whatever CS’s affections in the hearts of the production–and I do think the writers and many in the production are very fond of it.  There is a very hard reality.

CS the story is deeply disliked within the fandom by anyone who does not ship CS.  It’s not bitter SQers because their ship isn’t canon.  It’s not jealous Rumbellers because they want what CSers have.  It’s not OQers who just had their ship ruined so they want to ruin someone else’s ship.  It’s not … whatever is being claimed about the Snowing participation (I’ve seen “respected” CSer bloggers claim all of the above).  The CS story is widely disliked.  The trend, while perhaps futile because I don’t see a point in negative trends that have no goal, was a manifestation of that deep dislike.  The anger is real.  It’s not being manipulated or co-opted.  And it has been growing all year.

I’d talk about group think and bubbles but apparently that is just being disregarded over that wall in happy kissy land.  But let me be bluntly pragmatic.  Whatever the writers or the production or the executives who like CS think they are not actually shippers.  If something is detrimental to the bottom line of the show it will no longer be cute and attractive to them.  It frankly doesn’t matter how many tweets “We Support Captain Swan” got last night.  Because the one that showed up in the social media reports at ABC today was the negative trend that trended world wide for 3.75 hours across the span of east coast prime time.

Trying to tell yourself the anger is something else.  That the anger is some small minority.  That you have powerful people on your side.  Ultimately that doesn’t make the anger go away.  And it doesn’t take the power away from the people who are angry.  

It’s just going to make them angrier and more determined to be heard.  And every time someone goes into the OQ tag and tells people they’re grieving wrong, or makes a post celebrating the reunion and adding a “poor Robin” and tagging it with both ships it is only going to make it worse.

Perhaps it’s time for people to do a bit more listening and a little less explaining.
