It's strange because I see them as their characters in this picture and not Ian and Nina, that being said she really looks like Katherine to me. I do love to see Ian in colors - that man is just beautiful.

Hah, that's weird because it's totally Nina/Ian here, not even posing for something TVD-related, like a promo shot.

I do love to see Ian in colors - that man is just beautiful.

Have you read the interviews that accompanied the pics? Nina agrees with you, LOL!

Q:Ian, which clothes from the shoot did you like the most?

Ian: I don’t wear a lot of color. Nina always yells at me about it.

Nina: I tell him he should wear more color.

I read some opinions, that this is not their real photoset, but two different pictures, united in some app :-/
There are a lot of people in RuNet who say that Nina and Ian don't want to see each other after their break-up, that's why the interview was made from two parts with the same questions - one part from Nina, another from Ian.
Could you give me a link to this interview, because I wasn't able to find it in our Russian sites?:)
Arabian: Ian & Nina18arabian on June 3rd, 2013 11:26 am (UTC)
We actually knew about this photoshoot before it happened, but then figured maybe it didn't, cuz Ian's dad hinted at it but when the pics didn't come out originally, he thought he might have misunderstood Ian, but nope, they did the shoot together. And it's certainly not two separate interviews. It makes no sense to say they weren't together because they actually respond to each other's answers and comment to each other throughout the interviews. In fact, the two sources are two of the most well-known and credible newspapers in the Phillipines. Some people are so stupid.

And frankly, I don't buy that they broke up. It was shown as an "exclusive" from US Weekly who used an "unnamed source" and then a few days later posted pics of Ian all sad with his dad in Louisiana (not even bothering to check that Ian was in Europe at the time, and the pics were 3 months old!! Such fact-checkers there who actually care about putting out correct information, huh? NOT!). Every other media source simply went with the US Weekly story--which had NO official confirmation. As did no other source.

This interview/photoshoot actually took place about 3-4 days BEFORE the supposed "break-up" and based on it--and according to the writer of the article--there's no sign of any trouble. Since then, tweets, family interaction, things said at conventions, their heavy work schedule all point to the fact that there was NO break-up, simply time apart BECAUSE of the heavy work schedules/them being on different continents. US Weekly just went with some unconfirmed "scoop" and every other media outlet followed for the site hits (E!Online actually admitted as much, acknowledging that their story of it was based on the US Weekly/speculation.) So stupid.

Anyway, links --

Thank you so much!)
Your words sound more logical than discussions in our forums between Ianina-haters)))))
Arabian: Ian & Nina11arabian on June 3rd, 2013 09:46 pm (UTC)
I just avoid the haters, mostly because they don't actually pay attention to what is going on and so speak from lack of knowledge. You should check out this thread on Ian's board at FanForum--it's the Nina/Ian appreciation thread (I'm JenniferH there)--it's really up-to-date with information. There's some worry, but mostly it's all good.

This picture is beautiful..I love them so much.
And I would like to believe they're still together...I hope we'll see some pictures this summer.
As of now, they've been away for a while..and she didn't go to Italy...I think.
Arabian: Ian & Nina18arabian on June 3rd, 2013 09:44 pm (UTC)
No, she didn't go to Italy. She can't. She's filming a movie in Atlanta right now. (And Ian's filming his movie in London.) Work is why they are separated right now. (Here's another example of US Weekly's "sterling" reporting -- first they posted that Ian/Nina hung out backstage at the Upfronts, getting along fine and laughing, then a few days later, they posted that Ian/Nina were awkward with another and there was tension. So, which was it? Oh, whatever will get more hits!)

I can't wait until we get more pics from this shoot!
bangel_4e: delena3bangel_4e on June 3rd, 2013 09:49 pm (UTC)
Ohh, I understand. I've been away for a little more than a week and I missed so much...including Ian in my own country!

Really? Well, we all know those magazines are trash. I was just worried they weren't together but I guess we'll see once they're both free again :)

Yep, me too...they look so amazing.

Arabian: Ian & Nina09arabian on June 3rd, 2013 09:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's just crap. US Weekly had this "exclusive" with no confirmation only "unnamed sources" and every other media outlet jumped on it. E!Online actually admitted as much, acknowledging that their story of it was based on the US Weekly/speculation. So stupid.

You know, this interview/photoshoot actually took place about 3-4 days BEFORE the supposed "break-up" and based on it--and according to the writer of the article--there's no sign of any trouble. Since then, tweets, family interaction, things said at conventions, their heavy work schedule all point to the fact that there was NO break-up, simply time apart BECAUSE of the heavy work schedules/them being on different continents.

(If you haven't seen the interviews--they're ADORABLE--scroll up a few comments and I linked to them.)
bangel_4e: lost2bangel_4e on June 3rd, 2013 10:00 pm (UTC)
Exactly...it's those unknown sources...I always blame them.So stupid.

Oh, I'll absolutely read those...I can't wait! Thanks!
Arabian: Ian & Nina18arabian on June 9th, 2013 07:05 am (UTC)
And now a few sites are starting to question the break-up too, LOL!
bangel_4e: elenabangel_4e on June 9th, 2013 09:58 am (UTC)
Really? Ah, go figure. I just read some of their tweets and I think they're just really, really busy with their schedule.

i love the new photoshoot pretty! <3
Arabian: Ian & Nina18arabian on June 5th, 2013 07:52 am (UTC)
I know, right?! I can't wait until we get more pretty pictures!
prettygirl5130: pic#119743568prettygirl5130 on June 5th, 2013 12:45 am (UTC)
Like they just scream SEX to me! LOL!

I also don't believe they broke up. It doesn't make any sense unless Nina or Ian texted the other one after he left for Europe and said that it's over..done...caput...fin. Doubt it.

I think if anything there was a lot of stress in their relationship/lives because of the distance from each other. I remember they were both quite active on Twitter the week before filming was over talking about how sad they were they couldn't go to Coachella. Unless they were going as friends (yeah right) they didn't seem all that broken up or even on bad terms then and then they separated because Ian had to work and Nina wanted to get some beach time in as Ian mentioned himself in that interview.

Actually that interview explains a lot about how they are. They both are very driven...Ian for ISF and Nina for her movies...and they both are pretty committed to each other and once you have that kind of relationship you are able to focus your energies on other things...like your career. Unfortunarely for them, their career sometimes means long periods of being away from each other but on the upside part of their career currently is working and filming together in the bubble that is Atlanta for TVD...so sometimes you have to take the good with the bad
Arabian: Ian & Nina18arabian on June 5th, 2013 07:59 am (UTC)
The bottom-line is this, yes, it really does NOT make sense. I was talking to sarcasticcheese early on and I said the thing for me is that this is not TV or movies, this is real life and you don't have gaping plot holes because of stupid writers. Yes, sometimes things just happen, but there are warning signs, there's something because things like this happen for a reason. And NOTHING AT ALL ANYWHERE points to ANYTHING happening. So, yeah, don't buy it. :)
prettygirl5130: pic#119743568prettygirl5130 on June 5th, 2013 10:28 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah...we would have seen signs that something was up for sure.

Maybe if this interview didn't come out it's posssible they needed a break from each other. But after this interview...Yeah I doubt they've broken up because they didn't have to act the way they did. They didn't have to act coupley at all, they could have easily acted the way they act for most work related events, professional and friendly. But they didn't and to me that means they were trying to make the best out of a crappy situation knowing they're going to be separated for the most part.

The break up articles came out two or three days after these lovey dovey interviews...it just doesn't click.
Arabian: Ian & Nina03arabian on June 9th, 2013 07:06 am (UTC)
And now a few sites are starting to question the break-up too, LOL! Ya think? :rolls eyes: I mean, their friends are making fun of the rumors and stuff now.
prettygirl5130: pic#119743568prettygirl5130 on June 10th, 2013 10:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah...whose friends make fun of breakup rumors if they're true? No friends of mine! LOL!

I do kind of feel for them though....this hiatus has been kind of crappy for the two of them. The media is picking on them. they are separated for almost three months. They missed Coachella. It's just not a good hiatus for them in general. I'm sure they're having fun in any way they can, but still....it's just a lot of bad luck IMO.
