If I were a community, this would be a party post!  
FOUR DAYS TO GO, Y'ALL.

I'm so ridic excited! I honestly thought I'd have moved on during the insanely long hiatus, but I'm fangirling all over this.

Things I want from Season Three:

- ELIJAH. The show basically needs to stop killing him off every time they want to increase the badassness quotient of the other characters (because we all know that nobody is quite as badass when they stand in the same frame as Elijah).

- Elena needs to be a bitchy, insecure, teenage mess and I will be severely annoyed if she isn't. The girl's gone through an insane amount in a really short period and she just needs to break down right about now and occasionally say 'fuck this shit, I'm going to get Caroline to compel the bartender to get me beer bottles and overcome even my insanely high tolerance that everyone remembers from Bloodlines.

- Caroline needs to be a part of the main storylines. No more, 'oh hey Care, you dance well, btw Klaus is here'. And if you plan on going the cheerleader face-off or something, show, do not reduce all of Caroline's wonderful characteristics and make her all about the clothes and the boys because she is not.

- Outside Couple Bonding. Sometimes I feel this show is almost too invested in its triangles and tends to neglect all the wonderful relations outside it (WHY HASN'T STEFAN/CAROLINE BEEN DEVEOPED SINCE MID SECOND SEASON?). I'm a shipper at heart, I mostly watch only to ship (except LOST because that shit is amazing regardless and they killed off my main ship in the first season) and so for me to feel that means that the show must have shown my awesome potential. Give me Bonnie/Caroline/Elena sleepovers. Damon/Alaric bromance. Tyler/Jeremy/Matt. Stefan/Caroline. Elena/Elijah. Damon/Caroline. Jeremy/Damon. Ghost!Anna/Ghost!Vicki. Anything. Because one of the best scenes in this show, even though it has no relation to anything, has to be:





- Damon/Elena snark ala season one. I don't want to hear Damon's ~confessions of love or whatever, I want to see what he's feeling. I want Ian's perfect expressions from season one where it's written all over his face that he's falling in love with Elena, even as he tries so hard not to show it. Give me scenes where they're together and uncomfortable or fighting or aware and denying it because their chemistry doesn't come out more than in those scenes, trufax.

- STEFAN. Okay, ripper!Stefan is going to be awesome, so no comments. But don't tell me that Damon's conflicted about whether to save his brother or not because I refuse to believe it. More than anything I want Damon/Stefan interactions, for them to respond to each other instead of via Elena.

- FLASHBACKS. Katherine (lots and lots of Katherine in present and past days) or Stefan at that Bon Jovi concert with Lexi or Elena pre-Salvatores. I know most of this is probably not going to happen but it would kind of be epic if it did.

- MATT. He's basically been hanging around for two seasons with no storyline except when he's being mean to Caroline (not cool, brother, you get the Evil Eye for messing with my bb) and seriously, he just need something to do. And something apart from the Tyler/Caroline (who've totally been heating up the promos ~whoa) dynamic, please. He can be under Alarics's patronage and train to be a vampire hunter or something. Don't waste the pretty, writers.

- BONNIE. Don't send her off to visit someone or hide in some witchy place for multiple episodes, unless of course Katerina Graham's off being awesome somewhere else.

- DAMON/ANDIE RESOLUTION. Do not show me shit you're not going to address, show. Especially if it involves mind-control and sex.

- Damon's season one hair /shallow


Also, here, have some icons before season three comes and changes the canon. (I'm not sure how that's related but have some icons anyway). First time trying textures, so. I also wrote Caroline!fic and got a new journal layout, I feel so productive. :D

Haha, I'M SO EXCITED. But then it has been a long time; odd how we all kept writing fic and discussing and making icons throughout the hiatus. This show has really taken over my life!

ELIJAH!!!

I want him back too... SO MUCH AWESOME! They writers have created an insane paradox that I want explained. How can one be so badass yet get killed so awesome, notably by a middle aged History teacher and a seventeen year old school girl?

Caroline is too awesome <3 <3 <3
Having said that, I want her to tell Matt to 'GFO' because I just cannot stand him.

And I completely agree with you about the need for outside couple bonding. TVD is the only show where I have had OTPs, mostly I ship a bit of this and a bit of that. I think that just proves how invested I am in TVD but the thing is that there are some beautiful platonic relationships outside the main couples e.g Stefan/Caroline, Stefan/Lexi, Elena/Bonnie/Caroline, Dalaric ECT. that deserve more exploration! Also I really think they need to sort out Damon/Caroline - THAT IS A MASSIVE LOOSE END AND IT DRIVES ME UP THE WALL.

Also, a resounding yes to more Katherine! My favourite outcome would a girl/woman from the past or present falling head over heels in love with Kat a la Elijah or Damon or Mason. ALL MEN DO. Obviously that's not going to happen so I would settle for Kat just being there, especially in flashbacks! Not enough flashbacks in S2! :'(

I'm not gonna lie, the most exciting thing for me is Damon's season one hair. Both my ships were buried in the S2 finale, Katherine's gone, Elijah's gone but OH YUSS I like me some S1 hair XD

Love the icons! Not taking any but I have to say that this one is GENIUS



Ohhh and I'm loving the Freud tag!

THIS MADE ME LOL SO HARD. But seriously, this is true and I shall never understand it. Maybe it's because Elijah is so highly a man of his word that he absolutely doesn't expect something like this to happen, which is basically back-stabbing. However, he himself went back on his word at the crucial moment (although the importance that this show puts of family suggests that every single character would understand why)!

TVD is the only show where I have had OTPs, mostly I ship a bit of this and a bit of that.

Haha, I'm the exact opposite, I usually ship fiercely and stick to my ship, regardless of what happens to it. TVD is actually the only show where I seem to ship everyone/everyone because they're all ~stunning characters in their own right and have amazing dynamics. AND YES, MOAR LEXI PLZ.

My favourite outcome would a girl/woman from the past or present falling head over heels in love with Kat

Ooh, that is so interesting :O I'm pretty sure the show won't 'go there' but it would've been awesome to see! Till then I'd love some Elena/Katherine dynamic development (Nina Dobrev even has chemistry with herself, what even?)

Haha, KATHERINE AND ELIJAH AND DAMON'S SEASON ONE HAIR BETTER BE BACK THIS SEASON.

Glad you liked that icon, it wasn't initially a part of the batch but I wanted to do something strange, hee.

Ohhh and I'm loving the Freud tag!

Considering I'm reading Sons and Lovers atm, Freud is never far from my mind :P

ELIJAH.

AGREED. Bring him back and stop killing him! Who's left to kill him, anyway? Hasn't everyone had a turn? And dude, Elijah, melt that dagger down already. It doesn't work on Klaus, it's only hurting you! However, I will say that I hope Elijah maintains his position of chaotic neutral/badass. I don't want him to get too chummy with the Mystic Falls gang and be metaphorically defanged. And really, from a story POV, he can't be on their side too much or he solves all problems. Unless the other Originals are a problem, because then you need at least one Original on your side. Am I making sense?

Also, Damon/Alaric please.

Hahaha, THIS IS SO TRUE. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO HIM, SHOW? I think Elijah's basic problem in this scenario is that being a man of his word he sort of expects other people to keep their word as well, which they totally don't [even though I think Elena totally would have, if the circumstances hadn't turned out like they did]. And that last scene with not-killing Klaus doesn't count as him breaking his word imo because in this show family >>>>> everything else. But I definitely get your Elijah!analysis, I think most of his bamfness lies in his elusiveness and civility (so different from Klaus, who seems very 21st century) and you feel the power somehow. AND OMG, OTHER ORIGINALS, TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THEM. But yes, our island of misfit toys will definitely need Elijah!

Pink is my fav color so I love the icons and the new layout :D

It´s about time we get the party started! 4 days!!!!! to go - I thought this hiatus would never end. I confess, I was busier this year and didn´t read as much fanfic and didn´t spend as much time in the fandom like last summer hiatus still, the excitement is growing.

Caroline/ Stefan - ITA, I love them! and while I could sit through all scenes in my little selective re-watch the other day I really don´t get Tyler/ Caroline, I just don´t. They came out of nowhere while Stefan/ Caroline has so much potential!!!

Interesting though with a little break and watching it all unfold at once the 2nd part of s2 isn´t that bad. It suddenly made sense and all but it was kind of horrible to watch back in spring week by week. If that makes sense *LOL*
youcallitwinter: but I keep them in a box under my bedyoucallitwinter on September 11th, 2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
Hee, I didn't even realize I had a pink bias till I made this post! I love greens and blues, but I prefer the pink and reds and purple!

I thought this hiatus would never end.

YOU AND THE REST OF THE FANDOM. Like, wow, they've been away for so long D: And I really hope they don't go on mid-season hiatuses. The second season was so broken, imo. The good thing for me was that I joined this fandom during the hiatus after 2x11 so I had a lot to watch without having to wait :D

Stefan/Caroline are ~flawless, basically. I love how fun they are! I'm not invested in Tyler/Caroline but basically I'm good with Caroline/anyone who realizes how awesome she is. And the hot promos have kind of got me excited about them!

I knowww, it totally makes sense! I'm so not used to waiting and I'm going to have a terrible time this year in the week-by-week viewing DD:

I think Stefan/Caroline wasn't getting as much focus because of the whole sacrifice business.

Oh, I hope it's that and not that the writers have decided not to explore it anymore. THAT WOULD SUCK considering the fact that Paul and Candice seem to have insane chemistry! I honestly don't think she'll be helping Elena and Damon bring him back, which is sad, and also why I think the show is rather fixed in its triangles! And Damon and Caroline have such an interesting hate/wary friendship dynamic that I'd love to see more of it!

I totally hadn't heard that about Damon/Alaric :O It really sounds interesting! And I love how Alaric is appropriating the parental figure dislike for Damon, after Jenna (JENNA :'() That should be good to watch, but I WANT MY EPIC BROMANCE AS WELL!

I'm conflicted about the TVD return, because I'm scared Delena is going to ruin it all for me. :(

I also totally agree with most of your points, especially Caroline and Elijah.

Haha, I totally get that because I ship Damon/Elena and I'm still scared that the show is going to ruin it for me. Like, if they continue in their season 2 dynamic, and don't revert to the awesome that was season one, I'm probably going to get less invested D: Don't make me feel that way, show!

I AGREE WITH ALL YOUR WISHES. Especially Elijah. And S3 needing to really be all about Elena's pain and torment because jfc SHE HAS EARNED IT. And also Caroline needing more than endless triangles. And our character interactions outside of the main threesome (GIMME ALL THE STEFAN/CAROLINE BFF TIMES and also I miss Jeremy/Elena brother-sister interaction and Alaric's relationship with them could be so interesting). AND STEFAN N' LEXI FLASHBACKS, YESSSSSSS, NOTHING COULD MAKE ME HAPPIER.

Okay so basically I want everything in this post.
youcallitwinter: but I keep them in a box under my bedyoucallitwinter on September 11th, 2011 04:02 pm (UTC)
ELENA HAS TOTALLY EARNED IT. Till now I've been satisfied with my headcanon for her, but if season three does not show me Elena being a glorious teenage mess, I shall once and for all be convinced that I've totally been projecting on her instead of taking cues from canon D: DO NOT MAKE THAT HAPPEN, SHOW. Also, Caroline needs more than boys, especially boys who reduce her to an insecure mess and treat her like she can't ever be good enough for them as she is (Matt, I'm looking at you SO HARD). AND I WANT LOTS OF BFFNESS AROUND; WITH BONNIE AND ALARIC AND ELENA AND DAMON AND CAROLINE AND STEFAN AND JEREMY AND ALL POSSIBLE COMBINATIONS OF THEM.

NEEDS MOAR FLASHBACKS (especially ones with Lexi being a bamf! Oh hey, Lexi!)

- ELIJAH. The show basically needs to stop killing him off every time they want to increase the badassness quotient of the other characters (because we all know that nobody is quite as badass when they stand in the same frame as Elijah).

QUOTED FOR TRUTH!

Sick of them killing off Elijah because they don't know what to do with him/want to make others look more badass. CAN'T BE DONE, SHOW! So stop trying!
youcallitwinter: but I keep them in a box under my bedyoucallitwinter on September 12th, 2011 11:32 am (UTC)
I think that suave subtle charm, mixed with the hint of power and authority REALLY work for me. It's like Elijah's actually the only character who seems like someone's who's from a different era. And I always feel like he's lived a long time because he doesn't resort to dramatics and shock-tactics like both Katherine and Klaus do. MUST GET HIM BACK ASAP. D:

I realize he was basically a character created to die but Kevin and Julie decided against it, and so let's get over the sleeping beauty syndrome

HAHAHAH. But seriously, totally agreed! I know that Katherine and Elijah were just supposed to be characters who appeared for like an episode or so, BUT YOU DON'T LET GO OF ~TALENT WHEN YOU SEE IT. I mean, look at Katherine, she was supposed to be there for a couple for flashbacks but then when they saw Nina do Katherine...how could they NOT bring her back, y'know. Ditto Elijah. Gillies seems manic and awesome through his twitter but seriously, the way he plays Elijah O_______O

Haha, I ship Stefan/Caroline too, so pretty sure it doesn't count from me either. But Elena/Elijah, I never remember that episode is called Klaus so I just call it That Episode when talking about them and obviously everyone knows which one I'm talking about! And I love how Elijah totally puts Damon in his place and tells him he's not as badass as he thinks he is, hee.

Honestly I think the whole Damon conflicted thing is a little misleading, I think Damon will be trying to do right by Stefan, it's just what he thinks is right by Stefan isn't probably what everyone else does

THIS IS TRUE. I can imagine Damon totally doing things his way and screwing them up, after all he has no one left who'll try to control him (except possibly Elena and Alaric), but no Elijah, no Stefan, he'll REALLY have to be the 'leader' of a group that hates him (Bonnie, Caroline, etc). Man that's a tough call!

Also, Salvatore Brothership is such an awesome coinage, I'd totally sail on that :P

But YES, Damon/Andie needs to be addressed ASAP, especially since their target audience is teenage girls. THIS SHIT IS WRONG, YOU GUYS, even if it's a really hot guy doing it *nods*

Ooh, thank you, glad you liked them ^.^

Elena needs to be a bitchy, insecure, teenage mess and I will be severely annoyed if she isn't.

AMEN. Also, pretty much agreed with all of your points. Particularly the Damon/Andie business. Ugh, I'M SO WORRIED ABOUT THAT SHIT. :\ I also want vacuuming!Damon and Klaus/Stefan sex, but... I can recognise this may be a hollow dream.

Man, I so want to write some more Elena POV fic for this week, but my inspiration is dead. PROMPT ME? (Song lyrics usually do ze trick.)

P.S. swooning @ your Damon/Katherine icons.
youcallitwinter: to better counter-act his charm attackyoucallitwinter on September 12th, 2011 11:43 am (UTC)
THE SHOW BETTER GIVE ME THAT. And fandom will hate on her even more then, hee: BUT WHY ISN'T SHE SELF-SACRIFICING AND SELF-EFFACING AND BASICALLY ADHERING TO EVERY GENDER STEREOTYPE EVER?

Also, vacuuming!Damon and clock!fixing Damon FOR THE FUCKING WIN. We need to see his housewifely tendencies displayed more prominently.

OMG, OMG, OMG, ELENA FIC!!!!! Now I shall search for lots of prompts so something can inspire youuu!

Thank you, Damon/Katherine and their intense sexiness is so much fun to icon ^.^
