The Vhelton Story• In an effort to support sister Tumblrs within the Viacom network, VH1 reblogged support for a AfterElton poll about fandom shipping (supporting different pairings of characters from TV shows)• By supporting a particular ship (Sterek – two characters on Teen Wolf) and bantering with AfterElton, fans started to ship the two blogs together, calling us Vhelton.• Other Tumblrs like EW (involved in the original poll creation) and Teen Wolf commented in the exchange and thus became characters within the meta Vhelton shipping story.
