They always say that Stefan was meant for Elena. But wasn’t he actually meant for Kathrine a Tom was meant for Elena ?

Im not got at math but im currently rewatching and actually Elena and Tom were meant for each other right ?

I’m sorry but S5 Dobsley chemistry was INSANE 🥵🔥

I find it hilarious that S5 was supposed to be the huge Delena season but literally any Delena tingles I had in my heart evaporated so hard during their season 5 romance.

Meanwhile, the only romantic scenes I would look forward to week after was anything Dobsley. Their almost kiss in 5x4, his romance with human Katherine, their visions in 5x18. Even the whole corny plot of Katherine in Elena’s body was only tolerable to me just because of the chemistry between Paul and Nina. They never miss in any scene they’re together in.

I do have a petty rant though that I feel like the Dobsley kisses are edited to be tamer and choppier to make them seem less hot. While with Delena we got all these endless over the top sex montages and make out scenes, with Paul/Nina it feels like they always edit as it becomes steamy. It’s like they’re actively trying to spin the viewer to find Delena hotter. If they choreographed and filmed Dobsley love scenes the way they did with Delena, they would have had a much larger fan base at the time.

Fireside chats

Has anyone else signed up for the Fireside chats/happy hours with Brother’s Bond Bourbon? Paul and Ian did a couple and now it seems to have fallen apart. Two were cancelled and then one happened where no one showed. Now everything on the calendar has been cancelled. Anyone know what is going on with that?

What type of vampire do you want to be/prefer? TVD/TO one or Twilight one?

Personally I love TVD/TO vampires. I think that hypnosis/compulsion is cool and everything what vampires TVD could do. I have sentment to Twilight, but I am not so fun that they are shiny at sun.🤣😅 Also not everyone has special abilities. Opinions? And why?

here’s my theory/alternate ending to tvd: Tom x Elena (ik it’s long but have faith)

Okay so the plot is completely changed. Elena and Tom meet because she interns at the hospital he works at as a paramedic. She realises he is a doppelgänger but doesn’t tell him and they become close friends. This means that her and Damon never dated however her and Stefan did and because Damon and Elena never dated, that leaves room for BAMON! Anyways to continue, they are good friends until she goes into her sleep thing in S6. Tom is told that she moved away (or something like that). Meanwhile Bonnie and Damon are in love (to the level of Bonnie and Enzos relationship) but in the finale, Stefan AND Damon both die and Bonnie is heartbroken and with the power she has from heartbreak she breaks Elena’s curse (like how in tvd she made that magic world for enzo when he died because she was so heartbroken) and Elena is awakened. However the side effect is that Elena remembers nothing of the supernatural, except for the fact that she is a doctor and is Elena Gilbert and other details about her life except for anything involving supernaturals and she remembers ONLY Tom because of the doppelgänger fate thing where they are fated to love eachother (in tvd with the plot where the travellers make Stefan and Elena have visions about being together, if that was real) and then Tom and Elena fall in love and go on to live a happy life together. And yes I know that doppelgängers are supernatural but because of this doppelgänger love-fate thing she can remember him because it is their destiny to be soulmates. Meanwhile, Bonnie works with Caroline, helping her raise her kids and teaching them how to control their magic. They watch Elena from afar as she lives a happy and peaceful life with Tom, I.e going to get a checkup with Elena to talk to her again, watching her and Tom eat breakfast at a cafe, etc. To finish off we cut to the future at Elena’s funeral, where Caroline and all the characters who are still alive are watching her funeral crying, and you can see Bonnie’s headstone beside Elena’s and Damon’s and Stefan’s. Meanwhile, Elena goes to peace after death and remembers everything, and is reunited with Damon and Stefan and Bonnie who walks in holding hands with Elena and then they seperate and Bonnie embraces Damon while Elena goes and hugs her whole family like the real ending in the vampire diaries and back in real life Caroline touches their gravestones and smiles emotionally while holding her children’s hands and Liz is ‘beside’ her, and she somehow ‘knows’ that Elena and Bonnie and Damon and Stefan are saying goodbye.

Ik it has a ton of flaws and please comment developments but no harsh judgement I was just dissatisfied with the real ending lmao

why a ring?

If I was a vampire, I would just put my daylight ring inside my body ... Just surgically implant it in my skull or something... Why does it have to be somewhere it can be removed so easily?

Could you do a blood transfusion for a werewolf bite on a vampire?

I don’t think you could, but im curious either way.

Do you believe Julie plec would’ve made stelena endgame if Nina hadn’t left?.

IMO no because she could’ve did it in season 5 or when Elena got unsired from Damon season 4.

If i was human in Mystic Falls I’d definitely be putting vervain up my ass daily.

They are always draining the blood from people , no one would think of that location to get the vervain out 🤨

Siphons and vampire magic

(Spoiler ahead) Does a vampire’s magic replenish after a siphon uses it to perform magic? Is it the same idea as vampires healing? I’m thinking about the heretics and how they stay vampires even though they are drawing on their own vampire magic when they do spells. Does it ever run out?

Kai siphoned the no-magic spell away from mystic falls and it didn’t come back since he took all of its magic. As long as a vampire still has a tiny bit of magic left in them, will they be fine?

"I'm enjoying our stalemate"

Well Klaus, I am not. You can basically divide the middle of season 3 into three distinct trilogies: episode 16-18, the Sage trilogy, episodes 13-15 The Original reunion trilogy, and these past three episodes I've most recently watched, the Wheel Spinning trilogy. For three straight episodes the plot has just stopped dead as the writers pad the episode count and figure out what to do with Klaus after artificially keeping him alive past his "best-by" date. And it's here that I think that Klaus basically stops being a compelling villain. His first scene in this episode he's literally just chilling in the Salvatore house listening to music and asks Stefan what does he have to do to get his family back. How absolutely pathetic. Our big bad of the season is admitting he has no power over the situation. But I think this scene exposes another problem as well. Stefan's reply is "leave town for a few years and I'll get back to you". So Stefan essentially had no plan at all. His big revenge plan against Klaus essentially boils down to jangling keys in front of him and hoping Klaus doesn't rip his head off.

Here's a question: Why didn't Klaus kidnap Damon and use him as leverage? He knows that Stefan saved his life to protect Damon, so he would be as potent a bargaining chip against Stefan as his family is to him.

The B(ennet) story is certainly interesting. Finally learning more about Bonnie. Her mum calls Jamie her son, unequivocally stating his place as her family, which certainly makes the brief arc of him and Bonnie getting together awkward as fuck. They'll place Caroline in a love triangle with vampire super hitler and Tyler, an arc that covers three seasons by the way, but put Bonnie in a relationship with her adopted brother that doesn't last the season.

I would've liked to know how Abby put down Mikael. All she says is that she "lured him away" and then put him down, using every last bit of magic she had. I kind of hate this. Because what this implies that all you need to take down an Original (effectively permanently) is one witch. Later on when this spell is shown to us in this season Abby's explanation makes even less sense. Bonnie needed to stop a human heart, as well as have the help of several powerful vampires. How did Abby pull this off on her own? Maybe would've been a good time to name drop the name of a powerful ancient vampire that might've helped her?

Slightly off topic but still somewhat related, I managed to get the blu ray for season 3 for 98 cents. I already had it on DVD but it came with blu ray exclusive features, so WORTH IT.

Vampire Diaries characters

Rewatching TVD, in season 3, i realized how crappy Klaus was to everyone. Original or not, who the hell is he to compel Stefan to lose his humanity. The character irks me to no end on either program. But on to my positive. I love Lexi! I think her character was awesome and she should have had much more air time. Killed off too soon. Anyone else like Lexi?

Season 7/8

Watching the show for the first time… I just finished the last episode of season 6 and, I don’t know if it was a glitch but, the Max app on my TV acted like that was the last episode of the show. Didn’t autoplay s07 e01 and was showing me other shows to watch. For a minute I even thought seasons 7 & 8 weren’t included on Max.

I already know there’s no Elena because I read some articles about TVD that Google recommended. I see mixed opinions about post-Elena TVD in here. I’m gonna watch it either way, but, idk… thoughts/comments/opinions?

Have you guys ever played the game Devil May Cry?

I know this seems super random but me and my buddy were talking about how Damon isn’t an Italian name and I mentioned how Damon’s name should have been Durante which is an Italian name commonly shortened to Dante. Which made us laugh because of the video game. But then I made the comment that I was pretty confident the demographic that watches The Vampire Diaries most likely doesn’t play that game but you might have associated it with Dante and Vergil from The Divine Comedy.

If Rose lived, could Damon and Rose have been endgame?

I just thought about this. If rose lived past the werewolf bite, could she and Damon be together for the long run, and Elena would have just stayed with Stefan? They looked like they had some serious chemistry together, and rewatching some of their scenes made me realize that Rose was the first person in a long time to bring some light into Damon's darkness. Let me know what you all think of it though!
