...last weekend I met Ian Somerhalder! And what did you do? *g*

So… last weekend I had the honor and pleasure to finally meet Ian Somerhalder… among some other great stars from The Vampire Diaries. I remember some ppl saying he behaved like a douche at the last Barcelona con? Well, I cannot confirm this in any way. He is one of the sweetest ppl and comes across as a genuinely nice guy with a witty dry humor.
Also, he takes charity work really serious and you feel that it is very important to him. And even though he is a crowd pleaser, he does it in a way that isn’t fake or forced at all. And don’t even get me started on his looks. GUH. Those eyes are mesmerizing and when you go to the photo op it feels like you are the most important thing and all his attention is focused on you alone. It was just… wow!
I wanted to meet Ian for sooo long now so I'm just beyond happy that it finally happened. I also admire his work for ISF. We all pulled a great donation together and Ian was so overwhelmed by it, thanking us all - over and over! (even Joseph Morgan got goosebumps! lol)

Speaking of...

Man, I also gotta tell you that Joseph Morgan is one of the cutest, sweetest and most adorable guys ever!!! He smiles and/or laughs all the time, and he is adorably shy when someone praises him. But still, he manages to answer all fan questions without any awkward shy silence and you can feel that he is so thankful for and proud of his fans.
Seriously… this guy won me over SO DAMN MUCH and I simply adore him. Plus his British accent is just damn sexy.
It’s sooo weird that in real life he is the sweetest guy ever… and then you see him on the show and he is just a big bad asshole. lol But man, I love him. He is simply a sweetheart. A sexy and adorable sweetheart *gg*

Matt Davis… lol What can I say about Matt? LOL Well… to put it into Paul Wesley’s words: Matt = Dirty Old Man! LOOL This is so true! But he is so charismatic and funny and I just love his sarcastic side *gg* Not to mention that he is just damn sexy as well. At the photo ops he pulled me in, laid his arm casually over my shoulder while I curled one arm around him… and well, it was just perfect. Plus… holy hell…tall, handsom and muscled!!

Michael Trevino was a last minute addition b/c another guest had to cancel. To be honest… I didn’t expect much of him b/c I didn’t really care about him at all. So it was more an “okay yeah… whatever” news for me when he got announced.
But now, after seeing him live I can totally say that I’m very happy he was there. Man, such a fun guy lol Sometimes it feels like he was a little lost with certain questions… but all in all, he was really funny! And hello, eye candy.

Last but not least… Paul Wesley… *g* Let me tell you… I’ve never been a huge fan of Paul and his work. I also cannot stand Stefan on the show… but Paul? He is very charismatic and funny on stage. I also think he clicks with Ian quite well and they really have some great chemistry together (which is weird b/c on the show I never get that vibe) So yeah… Paul left a positive impression on me. (even if he was a little more “reserved” on Sunday) But well… we all have bad days, right? But man… Paul and a smiling photo op? Not possible. LOL He just looks weird. On every picture. It’s like he’s the Mark Sheppard in the TVD fandom.

So, in conclusion… it was a GREAT convention weekend and we had so much fun!!! Even the Sixties Party on Saturday was super-fun. And it had nothing to do with the convention itself but with the lovely ladies Andi, Kerstin, Susi and Madi I got to hang out with!! <33 And yeah, also in general, I had so much fun during my entire Vienna stay. First of all,we did some great & fun sightseeing, went for food and cocktails in the evening (and had one hell of a great evening… with other ppl looking weirdly at us b/c we were laughing so much) And also the convention itself was filled with lots of friends I got to hang out with… well more or less. ;) But Austria, Germany and Switzerland… all reunited in one spot!!

I also think that contrary to quite some negative statements from others, the organizers did a decent job. It was their very first con, so of course there were some hiccups and stuff that should not happen. But the most important part is (and they will get lots of bonus points from me for it) that on Sunday the person in charge came on stage and apologized. They really tried to do their best and I respect that.
Sadly, one of the main problems they had were the printers… so we didn’t get all of the photo ops yet (I had a pic with each guest plus a sandwich with Ian&Joseph) So we have to wait a little bit until they mail the missing pics to us. *sigh*

Also the selection of merchandise stuff was very poor :( Nevertheless, the shopping girl in me found something:


And a fun story goes along with it… I was checking out the jewelry table, saw those earrings and when all: Yay, they also have Supernatural stuff. lol Took me a few minutes to realize that the D & S does not stand for Dean and Sam… but also the Salvatore brothers have those same initials lol I never really thought about that before lol
Anyway… for me it will stay Sam and Dean *g*

For now I leave you with two funny vids. Pics will follow in the next few days… we had AWESOME seats in the second row, so this time my pics turned out really great. *happy*

Joseph Morgan being adorable. First talking about going back in time… and then being all “no spoilers” for the show Game of Thrones (seems like he is a huge fan… and a spoilerphobe lol )

Paul and Ian singing Ice, Ice Baby :D

remember some ppl saying he behaved like a douche at the last Barcelona con?

They lied. He was a doll, he's ALWAYS a doll at these events. ALWAYS. How he came across to you? That's pretty much the standard gushing from the vast, vast, vast majority of people at every single event.

After seeing Michael in some con videos, I was really charmed by him too. Paul's darling too.

All three of them (plus Joseph, Kat Graham and Steven R. McQueen) are going to be at Dragon*Con this year and it works out because it's the first I decided to go to in five years.

Thanks for the report.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah, apparently they lied! I just don't know WHY someone would lie about this. There is not a single bad bone in his body. He is sooo down to earth and funny and nice. Ppl are simply stupid who claim anything differently.

Aww and I'm glad you get to see them all at Dragon Con!!! You will have such a great time! I have zero doubt about it :))

Thank YOU for reading :) I still need to get a move on posting some pictures. *sigh*
Arabian: Ian Somerhalder08arabian on July 11th, 2012 05:00 pm (UTC)
I have no clue, but ppl will forgive nasty, lame-ass celebrities anything and everything, but Ian is "annoying" because he tweets about saving animals and the earth and stuff! UGH! So preachy. He wears hats! Ugh! What a douche! He smirks because he thinks it's so sexy! Ugh! What a douche! He's dating Nina! She's basic, therefore so is he. Or, he's dating Nina! Ugh, she's 10 years younger, he's a pedophile. Ugh! I don't know why, but he just gives off douche vibes! Ugh! What a douche! He acts with his eyebrows! He sucks! Ugh!

I KID YOU NOT. These are the comments people make about him.

I just -- this guy is just awesome. And these are the complaints that people use to justify hating him. Not all, but sadly, a number of them are Paul Wesley fans who are jealous that Ian gets the attention he does. It's just ridiculous when people lie about it because everyone who's followed him AT ALL know it's a lie. The guy's been on the scene for over 10 years and this is his second bout of being thrust in the spotlight -- you'd think if he was anything other than an awesome, down-to-earth, funny, sweet, intelligent dude, there would be at least ONE legitimate bad story about him. There's not.

Sorry, it frustrates me, can you tell? LOL!

Phew! Yes, post pictures! I'm looking forward to Dragon*Con. I just got my days off, woohoo!!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 23rd, 2012 01:06 pm (UTC)
Wow... that's pretty... WOW. I seriously have no words. :( And I have NO IDEA why ppl would say this. I just... I don't get it!!! So jealous or stupid or a combination of both. Sad. Really, truly sad. And how immature of the Paul Wesley fans. Man!

Some ppl like Ian more, some prefer Paul. WTH is the big deal? They both have enough screen time for all of the fans out there, so there is no fucking reason to hate Ian and/or Paul.

Heh, yeah I can tell you're a tiiiiny bit frustrated. ;) But you've every right to be, cause those haters and liars just SUCK! *sigh*

Oh when is Dragon*Con this year?

Arabian: Ian Somerhalder & Paul Wesley01arabian on July 23rd, 2012 01:41 pm (UTC)
August 31-September 3. It's always over the Labor Day weekend.

It's not about screen time, it's because Ian gets way more press, and simply is more popular, so the PW fans get pissy about it.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 24th, 2012 01:28 pm (UTC)
So, just a little more than a month to go! Wohooo!! :)

Well damn, it's not Ian's fault that his personality and looks apparently draw in more attention from fans and press. DUH. But clearly PW fans don't get that.

Man, I also just realized I don't have any TVD icons. *needs to change that*

ya i can't say enough how jealous I am!! Like of all of them, but especially of Ian! i just love that man in every way shape and form. I love his love for animals and the enviornment, i love his work, i love just everything! guh!
What did he do in Barcelona that made ppl think he was a douche?! I'm never in the loop on things apparantly. But i'm interested!

will you share your photoops??
AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I'm so jealous!! But so so so so happy for you!!! I'm glad I can live it through you! THe only way i'll ever be able to go to on is if they do it no further than Toronto. I Just can't afford to go far anymore :( and honestly, i'd have no one to go with :(
Amyames1010 on June 20th, 2012 12:52 pm (UTC)
You have ME to go with! :)
Jennifer: TVD: Ian & Nina windowdaydreamer1984 on June 20th, 2012 12:54 pm (UTC)
Would you come all the way to Canada to come with me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! eh eh eh!! (see what i did there lol)
Amyames1010 on June 20th, 2012 12:55 pm (UTC)
I'd totally come to Toronto!!! It's only about 4-5 hours from me! :D

eh eh eh!!! *kisses*
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:05 pm (UTC)
Well I have NO idea why some ppl claim that Ian is a douche! Seriously, this is one of the nicest and sweetest celebrities I've ever had the honor to meet! Maybe those ppl who voiced those accusations just didn't get their way with him (like kissing or grabbing Ian or whatever) So they spread around that he is a douche. Sadly we also had some ppl at the con who tried to get way too "touchy-feely" with Ian and some other stars.

I really, really hope you and Amy get to go to a con some day!! You will LOOOOVE it!! And if there's gonna be a con in Toronto and you guys will be there, I'll try to swing it as well! It could be FUN and I always wanted to visit the city anyway. :)

OMG LOL Paul and Ian Ice Ice baby is hysterical...

Looks like you had an amazing weekend.. \0/ and jam packed full of stuff and Ian Yes IAN!!! Now I can say it without Karmic retribution.. lol

Can't wait to see that Ian photo op..... *grabby hands*
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:08 pm (UTC)
Hehe... yeah they were pretty damn hilarious together. Like some mini-J2-chemistry kinda deal. But of course nothing near the "original" version :D

Oh man, I can't believe that it's already been a month since that weekend! We had such a good time. I wish I could go back and do it all again!
Anjacologne_chick on June 20th, 2012 06:09 am (UTC)
Meine Kollegin war auch da - sie ist aber noch nicht wieder zurück, hat also noch nix erzählt.
Sie war allerdings die Woche davor hier in Bonn. Ian fand sie total nett, aber Paul muss die totale Diva sein. Sie hat da auch gearbeitet und hat hinter den Kullissen einiges mitbekommen. Was sie so erzählt hat (und auch andere die in Bonn waren) macht ihn ganz schon unsympatisch. Ian hat sich dafür in Bonn überschlagen, bis auch wirklich der letzte ein Foto mit ihm und ein Autogramm hatte. Er hat Sonderschichten eingelegt :-)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:11 pm (UTC)
Hmmm also ich muss sagen, ich hatte eigentlich einen wirklich guten Eindruck von Paul. Sehr witzig und locker und war auch immer da wo er announced war. Aber du bist nicht die erste die mir erzählt dass er auch ne ganz schöne Diva sein kann. :-/ Ich denk mir, solang er seinen Job macht und das macht wofür er bezahlt wird, ist das alles noch okay.

Und ja... bei Ian kann ich mich der Meinung anschließen. Er hat auch in Wien Sonderschichten eingelegt. Sei es bei den Photos oder auch Autogrammen. Und auch wenn er bei manchen Events auf der Bühne nicht announced war (wie z.B. Auction usw) hat er auch da trotzdem mitgemacht und war present! Das macht ihn alles super sympatisch! Naja und ganz zu schweigen dass er dann doch sehr nett anzusehen ist wenn er so vor einem steht!! Yumm.

I am massively jealous. Thanks so much for posting this. Love the Joseph Morgan vid - I'm the same with GoT - massively behind and people keep trying to spoil me!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:12 pm (UTC)
Hehe you are welcome!! :-)) And I'm the same when it comes to spoilers!! Spoilers are just EVIL *g*
Amyames1010 on June 20th, 2012 12:53 pm (UTC)
Awesome!!! How are Paul and Ian together in comparison to Jared and Jensen?

I just started watching the show (I'm at the beginning of season 3) and I'm really liking it!! :)

SO glad you had a great time, bb!!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:15 pm (UTC)
Well, late comment is... late. Sorry.

Well Ian and Paul are like super mini versions of J2. They do have chemistry and great comedic timing... but it's def. not as present and advanced as Jared and Jensen. But then again, no one EVER comes close to the chemistry Jared and Jensen have. LOOL

I also saw that you're finished with S3 by now!! YAAAY. I love all the twists and turns they throw at us. There is ALWAYS something unexpected happening. And even when you think "ok now this will turn out like that..." they will completely surprise you in the next episode.
deanvica23deanvica23 on June 20th, 2012 12:54 pm (UTC)
you made a donation for what charity of ian? Its true paul dont smile on the photo ops weird shy maybe. Itisnt the smiley guy i think the opposite of jared. But very sexy. I m on on paul since the season 2.

The earings i adore totally too for me Sam Dean. it's true i think never S(tephen) D( Damon). Funny they have the sames for our sammy and dean.

I would like to see that at a convention supernatural.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah Andi and I actually made two donations. One for Ian's charity (ISF )and one for Joseph Morgan's charity (Positive Women) :)

Paul said that he just cannot smile on pictures and that he apologizes for it. But the face he makes is still weird lol

I love the earrings. Sadly they weren't really cheap... but then again I NEVER saw earrings like these before. So I had to buy them. I didn't really buy anything else at the merchandise stuff b/c I need to save money. But those earrings just had to come with me :)
Kros_21kros_21 on June 20th, 2012 06:32 pm (UTC)
woah sweetie! I had no idea you were going to this con!!!! Amazing!!

Where was this? I'd love to meet both Ian and Paul. I love them both on the show for different reasons. I guess they are extremely good looking in person as well, right? ;)

oh and Joseph Morgan.... that guy is sexy! But from what you told us I guess he is really different from Claus.

No Nina?

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:30 pm (UTC)
Uhhh so this answer is kinda... well... late. :-/ Sorry.

The convention was held in Vienna. Which was just perfect :)) I seriously couldn't believe that there was gonna be a convention in my country. This never happened before lol So, of course, I HAD to go... esp. since I adore Ian since he started out in "Lost".

And hell freaking yeah! They are even more sexy and handsome in real life! Holy hell. Esp. Ian and his eyes. When he looks at you, you a) have the feeling he is ONLY there for you and b) you could just drown in his intense stare.

Ohhh Klaus and Joseph can't be any more different LOL Joseph is suuuuuch a sweetie! So charming and a tiny bit shy! (but not a weird way ) And when he starts to talk.... that accent just makes you melt! Guh.

I hope you get to meet them too some day :))

Nina wasn't at the con... but for about a week she was on vacation with Ian in Vienna, doing sightseeing stuff :)

I won't be posting photo ops on LJ... but I posted some on my Facebook. Here is the sandwich pic I had with Ian/Joseph... by far my favorite picture of the entire weekend *g* http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k107/epic2006/klein-1.jpg

So ... I don't know anything about that TV show, so I'm not biased at all (for once!). *leans back*

I also think he clicks with Ian quite well and they really have some great chemistry together (which is weird b/c on the show I never get that vibe)

Is there supposted to be a "vibe"? Aren't they rivals for the same girl? No?

But man… Paul and a smiling photo op? Not possible. LOL He just looks weird. On every picture. It’s like he’s the Mark Sheppard in the TVD fandom.

That made me laugh really loud. You know, you and Mark Sheppard - very special relationship. Mwahahaha.

Hm. The organizers can only improve, right?

I was checking out the jewelry table, saw those earrings and when all: Yay, they also have Supernatural stuff. lol Took me a few minutes to realize that the D & S does not stand for Dean and Sam… but also the Salvatore brothers have those same initials lol I never really thought about that before lol

It's SOOOOO Sam and Dean. I didn't even think about another option. *same as you*

I'm glad you had a good time. And btw: PAID MY JIB TICKET TODAY!!! \o/
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on July 11th, 2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
Heh, is there a reason you don't watch the show? Or is it simply a time management thing? :)

Well yeah... the characters Ian and Paul play on the show are kinda a bit of rivals for the same girl. But they are also brothers and there is also lots of brotherly love. But still... I think the chemistry between Paul and Ian is better than the one they try to portray on tv. Even when they are playing emotional brotherly scenes... the feelings just don't come across like we are used to from other shows. *wink wink*

Hahah yeah... I guess Mark Sheppard and I will always and forever have a very special relationship lol I guess there is no way of denying that, huh? :D

It's SOOOOO Sam and Dean. I didn't even think about another option. *same as you*

Very true!! S & D will ALWAYS and forever stand for Sam and Dean. Nothing and no one will ever change that fact :D
lady_eilthanalady_eilthana on July 15th, 2012 05:15 pm (UTC)
It's a time management thing. And probably it's about priorities as well. I try to watch season 4 of Fringe on TV, I want to order the Bones season 6 DVDs soon, I still have some episodes of Queer as Folk season 1 to watch and I'd love to rewatch SPN. So ...

Nothing and no one will ever change that fact :D

*thumbs up*
