where he played a serial killing sociopath who desperately wanted to fuck his brother, and all I could think was ... audition tape for TVD, y/n?

There is one example of slash in the mix, and it's femmeslash, but it's the wrong pairing.

I don't really ... approve ... of this sort of thing, in the sense that it's obviously done in a spirit of mockery. Yet I link because I assume that at least some on my FList will take an interest.

I watch Vampire Diaries but I've never read the books.

This excerpt suggests an Elena who bears no resemblance to the TV version - and who sounds way, way more interesting.

First, a fantastic Bonnie/Damon TVD ficlet that [personal profile] rivkat wrote for me!! In which Bonnie is awesome, of course, and Damon is snarky and hilarious, and in which there is blood sharing, for which I am discovering I have kind of a ridiculous kink.

Second, two stories about feelings:

yellow, angles or silences. Dean sees auras. Sam/Dean.*

Learn To Glow for Other's Good. Jensen is an empath. J2.

*It's actually killing me not to insert an Oxford comma in that title

Meanwhile, how is no one talking about the new season of Top Chef: Just Desserts? The latest episode was fantastic.

It's been around for a while, but I only just read it - get thee immediately to Hard to Be a Saint in the City, which is an awesome, epic Damon/Bonnie road trip story where they travel around and kill vampires and use magic and Bonnie tops Damon and he loves it. Fabulous.

And like everyone else, my reaction to that ending is - wow.

Except also, I spent the last ten minutes wondering if they would ever. stop. talking.

But still wow.

Annie is far and away my favorite character, and I'm beginning to recognize that I definitely have a thing for these sort of ditzy-appearing female characters who develop core strengths and power over time. Like, also, Cordelia on Angel (in that brief space between Queen Bitch and Saint Cordie), and Caroline on Vampire Diaries.

Anyway, here, have a wonderful Being Human vid, spoilers for all three seasons, focusing on Mitchell, George, Annie, and their relationship to each other.

Also, a fascinating meta comparing UK's Mitchell to US's Aidan, based in part on the cultural understanding of the wars their characters, respectively, fought.

Appropos of nothing, I keep seeing this "Thirty Female Characters" meme on my FList and I want to play but I really don't have time to do a long post with pictures for each one. I just kind of want to say - favorite female antagonist, Diana of V. Favorite nonhuman, Illyria of Angel. Favorite older woman, Madeline of LFN and Madeline of Burn Notice. Favorite from a children's show, Alexandra of Josie and the Pussycats. Okay, now you know.

Come On, Vampire Diaries. Caroline, Bonnie, and Elena. It's S1 only and considering that it was made pretty much before ... stuff ... in S2, it's really prescient.

I Wish I Was James Bond, DS9. Yeah, that's Julian all over.

How is it that whenever Stefan is in a scene that does not include Elena (or Katherine), he becomes like 10 billion times more interesting? It's like those actors have an anti-chemistry that sucks the life out of any scene they share. Also -

Here you can see TV Guide's list of couples who should totally do it.

Here you can see Hollywood Life's list of the hottest vampire couples.

And look, it's not like I expect everyone to understand the strange ways of fandom, but these lists are at least partly intended to capture an internet audience and sell internet advertisements, and there is no way at this point for anyone even vaguely involved in online pop culture to not realize that on The Vampire Diaries, the biggest "will they/won't they" story isn't Damon/Elena, but Damon/Stefan. (At minimum, they might notice that TVP promo posters are essentially selling a Damon/Elena/Stefan threesome.) Or maybe they could have included other shows, like Serena and Blair from Gossip Girl, or Rizzoli and Isles.

As for hottest vampire romances? Sure, I'll give you Buffy/Angel and Buffy/Spike, but you'd have to be willfully blind to miss Angel/Spike.

That with this target audience, they can't come up with even a single non-heterosexual couple is just ... depressing.

Bonnie is so awesome. If I knew how, I'd be putting up pictures of her decorated with pink sparkly hearts.

I still 'ship Bonnie/Damon like whoah, but in all honesty, the most romantic scene in the season premiere was between Damon and Stefan.

For a brief moment I was so excited because I thought Spoilers ) but, sadly, no.

Next week looks like fun!

The plot really, really moves.

I honestly have no idea how long they can keep the plot developments moving at this pace, but it's impressive while it lasts.
