Consider this my blogstallment for this week, loool. I have been punctuating the editing of my actual article with (long stretches of) The Vampire Diaries so I reckon I might as well just be about it for a spell. I just finished season three and I take back everything I ever said--or thought--about Damon. He is...awww!! So sad-mean-adorable-cocky-cute in all his bloodsucking glory. "...Because when people see good, they expect good; and I don't ever wanna have to live up to anyone's expectations." Moved me, that one. Or maybe it's just the hot-and-heavy Delena moment that followed that confession that did that to me? Dunno.
But why would Elena not choose him, though?? I felt terrible for Damon right there, pinched my chest the way you could tell he already knew what the answer would be even as he asked Elena who would have gotten her last goodbye--if Caroline and Tyler hadn't been in the equation. Oh Damon... I really was hoping that Stefan already had his run, like, let Damon show this girl some passionate fire; move yo' moody self, Stef! I for real had some hopes especially when ghost Rose told Jeremy, "Stefan's love is pure; like you know that he'll always be good for her. But Damon? He consumes her, challenges her; makes her question her life, her beliefs: he is either the best thing to happen to her, or the worst." And I was like, that sounds like The love! But you just gotta love that Salvatore-Petrova curse, eh? Cause that friggin' has to be the only way Damon doesn't get a chance with Elena, no offence to epic broody Stef. And the part where Elena goes, "maybe if I had met you first..." and then it turns out she actually had?? Got me feeling all shoulda-known. And I was like, damn Damon and his compulsion to compel the forgetfulness of every moment that could have tossed the Elena coin in his favor. But I'm hoping he gets his shot, so...fingers crossed.
And in other equally gobsmackin' turn of events: what are the odds that hybrid-obsessed Klaus actually fancied our Caroline, eh? Lmao, I'm not even sorry for him. But maybe it's cause he already used up my dose of love in The Originals, so...Stake him!! But don't you just love how Caroline went from shallow to solid in one Vamp bite, though? A blonde to love, that one.
Also, I literally had a whole paragraph typed out in my head at the beginning of the season about how Torrey DeVitto always has to be the brainy-psycho bitch in all these series, like, umm, urrrr we sure this girl ain't psycho in real life? Lmao! Cause she was right there in OTH and PLL rocking that jacket...and now TVD. And then it turns out it's our Vampire hunter-turned-buddy, Mr. Saltzman rocking that hat. Sad, that one. But then I figure he really couldn't have long outlived aunt Jenna; and of course, a ring that brings you back from the dead? Had to come with side effects, like everything else in Mystic Falls. So yeah...RIP, Ric. But who will be Damon's BFF now, though? 😔
I'd be asking for spoilers but I'd probably just get on and google it myself, 'cause I need to know if Bonnie and Jeremy get back together, cause I mean...pfft, she can't be wasting all that fiery witchy-woo on some random bozo. And of course there's no way Jeremy has about the same luck as Ric in the girlfriend department. It'd just be too tragic.
But girl, that Elena-Bonnie-Caroline sisterhood? Best hood in all of Mystic Falls. And I am hoping that Matt gets some supernatural sauce in his life in the next seasons. But then again I guess there's gotta be someone who manages to maintain a decent degree of normalcy amidst all that paramadness.
I really can't believe I slept on this series...
