Getting an award was never ever why we did this, like I’m seriously not understanding how people can be pulling this out of their asses so let’s look at the facts.
We hosted two charity events to benefit a wolf sanctuary. At the time, most people didn’t even know our names (other than our creator) because we still kept them hidden. We spent hours and days working behind the scenes to pull it off both years. The amount of planning and work that went into that was astronomical. It was a team effort, but we did it for the wolves.
We got an amazing amount of support from fandom. We were so appreciative of everyone that helped us pull it off because we know we couldn’t do it without loads of support. And to those saying we don’t appreciate all of the support, please kindly refer to the two paving stones that were bought with admin $, engraved with Teen Wolf Fandom. Because that achievement belonged to us all. We did that for all of you. And still, we kept our names hidden.
We didn’t ask for this award. This award did not even exist when we put on either of our events. We didn’t contact MTV or beg to be recognized. We weren’t contacted by MTV either and frankly did not expect to win next to Misha. The SC was nominated (the organization itself, let’s be clear about that) and won because of the support of the fandom, because of people who appreciated all that we did.
The award was given to the one cast member who has not made secret of his dislike for our ship, despite that our second year’s donation was made in his name. The award was then passed off to a random fan with absolutely no association to the SC or the charity events. It was passed off to a fan simply because he talked about how much the lead actor inspired him during the panel.
We don’t care about the award/statue. It was given away and it should stay where it is. We don’t want it. We have no ill will towards the fan it was given to and if anyone sends him hate, they’ll have to answer to us because he doesn’t deserve that. Leave him out of it.
What we did want was the tiniest bit of respect, not only for our org but for the fandom that supported us. Our name is not even mentioned in the article summing up the awards.
So yes, we are angry. We are insulted and feel used as some big publicity stunt by TPTB.
But don’t you dare diminish what we did. Don’t you dare question our motives.
