Yes, I know this post is a beast, but just relive my joy with me. :)
So here is a little, or not so little synopsis. Oh, and these are all press pictures not mine.
Okay so as some of you may know yesterday I met IAN FUCKING SOMERHALDER!
So the whole event started at 4pm. I didn’t get there crazy early because I had a wrist band which guaranteed me a signature to I got there around 3ish. So I don’t have pictures because they weren’t allowed, and I don’t just mean “no pictures please”. I mean 4 cops and about 6 hot topic employees with in a hot topic store the size of my room.
So on the outside of the store you had to go through like amusement park style lines with the little in-and-out rope things. And then once you got inside the store you could take pictures of Ian and Candice while you were along a certain wall and then once you turned the corner, there was a cop telling you to put away your camera. My friend (who has a nicer camera) is ending me those pics we took along the side wall, and I’l make another post as soon as I got them.
ETA:: I spent 60$ on Season One on blue-ray, made a special trip to go get it. And when I got up closer to the actual signing this guy was like, you can't get that signed. I was just holding, not doing anything at all, and he was like a good 10 feet away from me inside the store. Jerk. And I was just going to have the little paper slip inside the case out, just a little thing. Would cause any extra trouble at all but.... nope.
So onto my story, okay so after waiting in like for like an two-ish hours I finally got to the part of the line where you can like peek through and the right moment and see them. Uhm, when I saw his profile, Like is little fedora hat (of course), his unf jawline, and his adorable adam’s apple… I kind of went into shock, like knees weak, gasping, can’t breathe shock. Like I just couldn’t even comprehend that he was like a tangible human being.
So then we got to go in to store take pictures along the wall etc. etc. so I met these girls behind me who were my age, and we had been talking like the entire time, and she said that she was going to ask him for a hug, (we had heard lots of girls say they got high fives, but nothing else) so I told her to go in front of me. He said they wouldn’t let him stand, so he grabbed her hand and kissed it.
So then he got to me and gave me a high five (of course I am already like dyyyying, can’t breathe, etc. but I was keeping it cool on the outside, thank god) and I was like, “Wait, can I have a kiss too?” So then he grabs my hand and kisses it. Not like a quick *mwah* looking at your kiss. Like a legit 3-4 seconds, and
, and, he looked me in the eyes the whole time.
So basically this…
but slower and yeah, I died. Oh, and his eyes in person... the most beautiful thing ever. Then
, he like signed my poster thing, and after we was done he goes. “Did you wash your hand?” I kinda froze for a second and than I was just like “Yeah, haha.” Then he goes “Damn.” *cue eye thing*
AHHHHH! Then I said something like, “Thank you so so much.” Then he goes, “No problem babe.”
So then I scooted on over to Candice, and needless to say I was still like in another world. She she signed me poster, and then said "I know, right." And then kinda gestured to Ian. So I was sorta already walking off, and I was like, "Oh, wait no. I love you, too. You were so amazing in the last couple episodes." I she was genuinely like "Oh my god, thank you so much" *cue adorable laugh.
So then I went outside just could barley even stand. Ended up screaming, shaking, crying/hugging people I had just met like and hour ago.
Next, we went downstairs and listed to this band that is in someway connected to tvd. They sang the song that was on when they found Vicki's body and every one is all sad and Elena is comforting Matt.
After that Ian and Candice came out for the Q&A needless to say it was mayhem. So I am in the whit shirt in that picture you can barley see but, yeah. I was lucky i was so close because basically what happened is all of the people who weren't able to get wrist bands, aka people who weren't at the signing/didn't have to wait in line, had been claiming spot in the Q&A while all the wristband peeps were getting their stuff signed.
So they were adorable at the signing. Like when they first went to sit down Ian was like, "I'm just gonna.", and grabbed his chair which was like a foot away from Candice's and set in down right next to hers. I am fully in love with Nina/Ian, but they were super cute together just in a friendly way. He gave her a kiss on the cheek at one point and she hardcore blushed. it was adorable.
You know they got all the typical softerside!Damon and badassvamo!Caroline, yadda yadda. the interview was so so, but they were just to adorable and gracious the whole time. they again reiterated how much the fans make the show, and just how very very thankful they were for all the support, and the fact that all of us had come out.
Oh, oh. And then the lady said that one of the main fan questions was for him to do the Damon!dance and he was like "What is the Damon dance? Is it that thing where he's like...
Sorry it's sideways this was the best quality, i could find. oh and up with quality to 480 if you'd like.
So I guess that that is basically it. It was pretty much the best thing ever. And can I say that he is definitely more attractive in person. Like personally i have never really thought that pictures did him justice compared to how he looks on video etc. But then in person it is just like another level up. His eye's, his bone structure, his voice, his just like over all aura, I just don't have words. Oh and Candice is even cuter, sweeter, overall more adorable in person too. Like I have so much more love for her now. Here is a video of the entire thing if you want to watch. Its the best video on youtube and it is of the entire Q&A.
Sorry for the length and squee-ness of this post just wanted to get it all in there. Oh and once I get pictures I'll make another post.
Feel free to squee with me. <3
