John Green and Dylan O'Brien set off fandom fireworks with red carpet selfie.

If you want a quick guide to the surreal experience of attending the MTV Movie Awards, look no further than YA author John Green’s Twitter feed from Sunday night.

He was invited to the awards ceremony to support the upcoming movie adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars, but for all that John Green is super internet-savvy and in touch, he seemed pretty confused by the whole experience. The target audience for the MTV Movie Awards probably isn’t middle-aged writers, after all.

Also, it seems like 2014 is the year when the MTV Awards transitioned fully to being the Internet Meme Awards, since Grumpy Cat wound up getting mobbed on the red carpet. (But not before taking a selfie with lookalike Tyler Hoechlin, who plays the notoriously grumpy Derek Hale on Teen Wolf.)

Elsewhere, Green met up with the other half of Teen Wolf’s Sterek pairing, Dylan O’Brien.

Yes, that’s right. The two megafandoms of Teen Wolf and Nerdfighteria have finally collided IRL. Well done for causing Tumblr’s latest emotional meltdown, you guys. We hope you’re proud of yourselves.

John Green fandom 101: Nerdfighters, Vlogbrothers, and pizza
If you’ve heard of John Green, it’s probably through one of two avenues: his work as an author or his hugely popular YouTube presence as one half of the Vlogbrothers. However, the scope of the John Green Internet phenomenon can be kind of hard to figure out. For example, what the heck is a Nerdfighter? Why do people keep Instagramming photos of their John Green books? And what’s up with the “Pizza” T-shirts?
