People were changing their user pictures, post limits were being hit. No Misha-punches were pulled. It was a sight to behold.
It s entirely possible that you re now unable to stop seeing Misha when you close your eyes. Hang in there; you will eventually recover. If you re one of those people still cackling gleefully at the memory of that day, then I m sorry to say that the cure for Misha is still, as of yet, unknown.

There s a whole two seconds of Magnus Bane , whoopee! Alec says a line! It s woefully little for any Malec shippers, though I suppose only time will tell what s to become of the Malec pairing on the movieverse.
Sterek fans can t be stopped! The Sterek Campaign (and consequently, slash shipping) have been gaining notoriety everywhere lately. Zap2it recently posted an article lauding the efforts of Sterek fans who have raised a record amount for Wolf Haven International.
John Barrowman and Colton Haynes appear to be having a ridiculous amount of fun filming Arrow , making the rest of us extremely envious.
