I Don’t Know Why I Even Bother Creating Sernando Scenarios…

20 Mar

OMFG Sernando…I mean, FFS, these boys just slash themselves!  I should just post their own stuff instead of dreaming up new ones. After staying up till 2 AM working on the Tishies results post, I woke up to this and just stared at it, lost in happy reveries for over an hour. Sergio shared the piccy with this tweet after which the Internet exploded from the combination of cuteness and pervy thoughts. Fan fic writers, get to work!

Sernando tweet 3-20-13

So we all know that Mesut and Sergio have been all up on Tumblr due to the pics they’ve shared from there. Is it really such a leap to think Sese may have discovered the cult of Sernando and slash fic (because this picture is obviously to torture the fan girls)? Reminds me of the hilarious meta!fic about that very subject with La Roja that my beloved kfunk22 wrote last June as a graduation prezzie for me. If you haven’t ever read it, feedback greatly appreciated is hilarious for anyone who knows the ways of fandom and the Spanish National Team. If these are not your worlds, it will be more than slightly confusing and possibly cause you to have some sort of breakdown/epiphany. So consider that a warning – it’s RPF/RPS. If you don’t know what that is, please look it up in the HB & HB Glossary. Our policy on posting RPF/RPS there  is pretty clear: If it’s not your thing, we’re not forcing you to read it, but we also don’t want to hear about how we’re going to hell for enjoying it. Caveats aside, let’s get back to enjoying all the perviness that Sergio has gifted us with today and giggling like loons over Kfunk22’s hilarious fic (those email addresses! I howled!) Thank you Sergio for the best Nando’s birthday present EVER! (Until next year when I demand you up your game even more – I double dog dare you!)

Afloat on a cloud of photo-verified Sernando love, I remain your…

– Lozil

    i am in a SUPER stressful time at work, and i am not even going to lie. this makes me so, so, so, so happy.

    i saw some pics of sergio and pilar walking and hugging the other day and i couldn’t figure out why i found it so bizarre. it’s because i’m not used to seeing him affectionate with women. isn’t that terrible? wait, no it’s not.

    • CinematiqueChic March 20, 2013 at 10:31 am #

      Yeah, he does seem to be more comfortable being super PDA with Nando, Mesut, Calleti, Iker, Cris, Kaka etc etc etc than he has with any of his girlfriends. Also, the silly petty part of me was glad to note that there were no public birthday messages for Pilar a few days back. But for Nando, he makes out with a giant photo.

      • Mehreh March 20, 2013 at 10:37 am #

        i will never forget when they both posted tumblr collages to each other on twitter. that’s more PDA than mandy and pilar get combined.

        • CinematiqueChic March 20, 2013 at 10:48 am #

          I cling to this and try not to imagine the private displays of affection that go on.

          • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 11:52 am #

            But why would you NOT want to imagine?! 🙂

            • CinematiqueChic March 20, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

              Are we talking about what Sergio and Mesut do in their private time, or what Sergio and Pilar do in their private time? Because there’s quite a difference between those two scenarios.

          • Mehreh March 20, 2013 at 11:55 am #

            i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t jealous of mandy and pilar. they’re getting that and i’m not. but a girl can dream.

            • CinematiqueChic March 20, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

              I know it’s silly and they (well, really only Sergio for me, I’m not jealous of anybody else’s WAG) have to date somebody and since I’m not an actress/model/Miss Spain my chances are slim. But still! It is super rude of them to date people who are not us 🙂

  2. Backwards March 20, 2013 at 9:54 am #

    Can just imagine Juan spewing over this in the corner.

    PS I have only read the first few lines of that fan fic and already crying at the email addresses/ cesc’s inability to spell. You know the whole promise of the fic is probably closer to the truth than we think 😉

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 12:41 pm #

      Isn’t it amazeballs? I couldn’t stop laughing. The ending was brilliant!

      • SR 4 March 20, 2013 at 4:32 pm #

        It´s beyond amazing. Tickledbytickitacka has to be my favourite email adress. It still cracks me up.

  3. mygypsyspirit March 20, 2013 at 10:12 am #

    That just made a bored day at work SO much better! Pervy thoughts all over the place!

  4. mariko March 20, 2013 at 10:16 am #

    That story completely made my morning! That was hilarious!

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 12:42 pm #

      Isn’t it genius? I laughed so hard my sides hurt. Such a brilliant, loving piss take on fandom’s foibles and our beloved La Roja.

  5. CinematiqueChic March 20, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    I’m not a fanfic person but I did read up to Xavi talking about “real football” in his sleep and am 110% convinced this is a true story.

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 11:54 am #

      Well, there’s a twist at the end that would have you rolling on the floor. Fanfic person or not, I recommend reading for that alone. 😉

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 2:10 pm #

      PS The fic is esp. golden for Xavi critiquing the sex scenes in fanfic technically (he’s of course a purist) and poor put upon prudish Iker having a hilarious meltdown.

      • CinematiqueChic March 20, 2013 at 2:31 pm #

        I read through and LOVED Xavi’s technical critiques. It was the most I’ve liked Xavi since…well it was the only time I have ever like Xavi 🙂 And the twist ending was especially hilarious.

  6. SR4ever March 20, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    These boys! I just can’t

    There’s literally no part of this i don’t love, the fact that his eyes are closed, his little hands fisted in his sleeves, the fact that nando doesn’t really have a twitter…

    And slashiness aside, how sweet are these boys? David Luiz posted some pictures too!

    • bella.s March 20, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

      second that to the fullest ^

    • Mehreh March 20, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

      i didn’t even think about that. nando is not a social media guy, so… who’s going to tell him? ugh, these guys. they’re too much.

    • jellyace March 20, 2013 at 11:05 pm #

      And who took the picture?

  7. jellyace March 20, 2013 at 12:49 pm #

    Oh Sergio! I am so sure that during concentracion, they google themselves, read up this blog and ask Xabi and Arbeloa to translate! That pic was just for us! For sure!

  8. anon March 20, 2013 at 12:53 pm #

    Sorry, just lurking, but I wanted to add my comment too. I think Sernando is the best bromance there is, without a doubt! None of the other ones come close. For starters it’s been going on for ages, and then the proof is also in that pic – Sergio is thinking of his mate even when he’s not around. A sign of true love. Sigh, lol. Love your site.

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

      Hi there! ::waves:: Thanks for your kind words and coming out of lurking – we’re not *too* scary (I don’t think) so join in the fun. 🙂 I’m with you, Sernando is my eternal OTP.

  9. Natalie March 20, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    when i saw this picture in the morning i could not stop laughing!!! if only he posted more of these

  10. Dr. Heidi March 20, 2013 at 1:17 pm #

    oh my dear Sergio….he must have a very tough constitution, as I would imagine his teammates would give him a truck load of s%^(t for this less-than-manly image! But then again, is anyone surprised? Sernando…the gift that keeps on giving….

    • anon March 20, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

      Lol! I think Spanish guys are just very affectionate in general.

      • Dr. Heidi March 20, 2013 at 1:27 pm #

        He needs to save that lip action for me…..maybe I need to dye my hair blonde and draw freckles on my face with my eye pencil. What does a girl have to do?????

        • anon March 20, 2013 at 1:36 pm #

          Lol! You crack me up.

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

      Nah, they wouldn’t be surprised. It’s just Sergio bein’ Sergio. I mean, he kisses Iker before every match – why would this be surprising? He cuddles the hell out of everyone.

      • SR 4 March 20, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

        That just reminds me of Sergio kissing Iker before the worlc cup final and Xavi looking at him scandalized. It´s priceless. For anyone who missed it;)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPySspdc_IM
        And yeah the teammates know how he is. It´s dead on he cuddles everyone! I was pretty surprised that he even hugged Pique before the Real-Barca game.
        Though Nando seems to be his fav!

        • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 2:25 pm #

          I’ve always loved that – so indicative of his personality.
          Xavi’s just pissed because A. it’s not him kissing Iker and B. Sergio hasn’t laid one on him. 😉

          • SR 4 March 20, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

            Totally! The way he smiles, grabs Ikers face and just goes for it. And yeah Xavi just wants in on the fun.

        • Allison March 20, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

          OMG Xavi! He looks like he’s intruded on a very private moment and is looking for an escape. I love the way Sese pats his arm like calm down buddy, it’s all good. 😀

  11. Dr. Heidi March 20, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    Can’t help but wonder is Sergio was called into action to kiss Nando’s nose boo boo and make it all better….

  12. Dr. Heidi March 20, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    so wait, if Fernando is NOT on the Spanish NT, where did that photo come from? Does Sergio ship it to all his destinations so he can stare deeply into Nando’s eyes no matter where he is on the globe? *cue Pilar running through the streets of Madrid shrieking at the realization that she is, at best, #2……*

    • anon March 20, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

      I’m guessing it’s on his locker at Las Rozas, but your version sounds much better. 😉

    • jellyace March 20, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

      Hahahaha! Not just Pilar, but Jesus Navas, too!

  13. SR 4 March 20, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    OMFG! For someone who has read all the Sernando fics out ther I´m just beyond stunned. I just can´t wrap my head around it. Sergio is sooooo adorable.
    Did he text Nando his birthday wishes with this picture attached? ( I sure hope so). And who took that pic? My money is on Pepe Reina. I can see him enabling Sernando. Ughh this is just all too much and now it´s even more heart-breaking that they aren´t together today :(. And now I´m wondering if there´s maybe some truth in some fanfics… So thanks for that Sese. I bet you´re all right. He totally knows about the footy fandom and is just teasing us.
    Sernando is just perfection *sigh*

    • Allison March 20, 2013 at 4:29 pm #

      Pepe is totally an enabler. Devilish, that one. 😉

  14. Laurean March 20, 2013 at 2:11 pm #

    I wonder who even agreed to take this picture! It’s like they know what we want! Fernando doesn’t even have a twitter so that’s a bit fishy 😉 they are totally creeping on fan blogs and toying with us

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

      I don’t mind one bit – do you? 😉

      • Dr. Heidi March 20, 2013 at 3:30 pm #

        Tattoo Playschool on my ass, and Sergio can toy with me all he wants….

        • Laurean March 20, 2013 at 10:18 pm #

          Ok I just got back from my personality assessment midterm to find this response and I have to say Dr Heidi you made my night! And doesn’t Sergio’s tattoo artist/friend follow this site on twitter? Maybe he has taken a peek into our little slice of paradise here 😉 could be behind Sergio’s efforts to write in English lol

          • headbandsandheartbreak March 20, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

            Hahaha! Yes, his tattoo artist does follow us. He’s a lovely guy – very sweet!

          • Dr. Heidi March 21, 2013 at 10:31 am #

            I had to laugh at the symmetry of transitioning from your ‘personality assessment’ midterm, and you then landing here! This place could be a clinical trial! 🙂

            • Laurean March 23, 2013 at 12:20 am #

              Oh yes, I will have to get some assessment tools up on Survey Monkey and get the footy fanladies to complete them. Maybe we can test for some real evidence between the differences between madridistas and cules. Or the difference between Sernando lovers and everyone else!

  15. Phédre March 20, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

    He’s doing this on purpose! He knows we’re gonna go berserk over this.
    OMFG, I love it! Totally made my day!

  16. Ira March 20, 2013 at 4:07 pm #

    When I saw this pic in the morning, the first thing I did was visit this blog but this post wasn’t up yet so I couldn’t share my excitement at the time. Anyways, I woke up pretty early to get ready for work [since the area manager was visiting today] and everything was going smoothly until Sergio tweeted this pic. I spent so long drooling and fantasizing that I was almost late for work.

  17. Lici March 20, 2013 at 7:36 pm #

    That was freaking hilarious!! I love Iker!

  18. Lena March 21, 2013 at 9:47 am #

    School life has kept me away from this blog for far too long (and I’ve missed it so much!) but it seems like I’ve come back at the perfect moment… I don’t think I was functional for half the day yesterday after first seeing the tweet!

    There are a couple of things I’ve been wondering: Who took the picture for him and how much they laughed at him while doing it. And I wonder when Sergio (and Fernando at this point I’m sure) found out about the Sernando fandom because this is totally tailored to us!

    And I’ve read that La Roja fic and it’s hilarious!! Definitely one of the best ones out there!

  19. SR 4 March 22, 2013 at 4:09 am #

    I still can´t fathom it… Oh Sergio and I didn´t think I could love you more! Glad someone else had the same reaction I did : http://ellyintheskywithfootball.tumblr.com/post/45836849294/sergios-birthday-tweet-about-nando

    • Laurean March 23, 2013 at 12:07 pm #

      Oh dead God! That was amazing! The guys are probably having a laugh about this! lol

      • Laurean March 23, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

        Dear** that’s just horrible lol

      • headbandsandheartbreak March 23, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

        HAHAHAHAHA! OMG! You are so going to hell for that one! 😉 (j/k) The joys of auto-correct.

      • headbandsandheartbreak March 23, 2013 at 6:00 pm #

        PS You should change your user name to “Nietzsche”

  20. kfunk22 April 15, 2013 at 12:09 am #

    first up, thank you so so so much, lo! i’m so flattered by all the nice things you and the watish sisters had to say! my grin is threatening to split my face in two.

    secondly, and perhaps more importantly, this is the first time i’ve seen this photo (a fandom hiatus will do that to you) and holy fuck. i nearly wet myself! oh my.

  21. itsmarmar4 July 14, 2015 at 11:25 am #

    So I read this fanfic back when you posted this, and I loved it so much! it made my day. But now when I look back and click the link, it leads me to live journal login. Has this fanfic been deleted?

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 14, 2015 at 2:10 pm #

      Hey there – I don’t know if she’s made her LJ private or what (I’ll ask) but the story lives on at AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/works/465095

      I’ll update the link. Thanks for letting me know. Check out the rest of her stuff – it’s awesome!

      • itsmarmar4 July 14, 2015 at 4:07 pm #

        Tysm!! I’ll definitely check her stuff out 🙂


  1. Here Are Your 2013 Tishie Winners! | Of Headbands and Heartbreak... - March 20, 2013

    […] Some things remain eternal: the love between Sernando and our love for them. They cruised to a comfortable win (38%) but Sergio’s bromance with his other boo Mesut Ozil came in second with 13%. (We can obviously see why Sernando is still the top bromance after today’s picture!) […]

  2. Happy Birthday Nando! | Of Headbands and Heartbreak... - March 20, 2014

    […] yet? Probably! Nando turns 30 today. Can’t wait to see what Sergio does this year. Remember his last birthday greeting to his bromantic boo?  Feliz cumpleaños, […]
