I’m reluctant to judge until we see how it plays out, but yes, certainly based on the info we have so far, the Stefan-Silas thing is completely ridiculous.
It’s just the kind of cracked-out ridiculous that I enjoy. How fun have all those Stilas gifsets been? OTP!
Not for a little while, anon. I’m stuck between recovering from illness, a very close friend being in the process of dying horribly, major work-related dramas, and, well, the rest of life. It is nearly done, so as soon as I get a clear evening I’ll get on it.
I can’t deny, your frustrations are well-founded. I will address them at length in my 423 recap when I finally get time to write it.
Sadly, the real world keeps reminding me it exists lately. Rude.
Thank you, my dear! I appreciate your appreciation and solidarity in the grossness of the sire bond. But don’t throw yourself off Wickery Bridge! What if a Damon is about to appear and BE A DAMON?
I AGREE TOTALLY. I just wish the show would back us up.
Damon/Elena forever tbh.
I feel like there will never be a television show that I respect as deeply as I respected Buffy. I don’t say that because I have little respect for TV. TV and I are in a committed, starry-eyed relationship.
But Buffy and I? We’re just kind of above and beyond.
This is the show that made me realize that TV is art, no matter how many of my wanker friends boasted of not having TVs or not turning them on, as they thumbed their Sartre and hummed along to Stereolab.
I have never and will never love a television show like I loved Buffy. No other show will be more worthy of my love. And as for Chosen itself? It only becomes more perfect on reflection.
Buffy Summers needed a happy ending. She deserved it. What could be more fitting than finally seeing her get to live her own life? What could be more fitting than seeing her and her best friend Willow sharing their power and responsibility in saving the world with girls everywhere?
Joss got it right. He got it so right it’s almost scary. And why should that be surprising? After all, he and his team got it right with that show every step of the way.
You are such a lovely lamb!
Honestly I don’t want to come off as being snotty with anybody. I love all of your asks and appreciate that you care. I just worry sometimes that people think I’m being willfully negative about D/E. And I would never. Promise!
THEY WILL ALWAYS BE PERFECT. No matter what the show does to them.
LMFAO. I hadn’t even thought about the incest angle. For the love of god, TVD if you’re going to have incest on your show at least let it be between Klaus and Rebekah, who have clearly been dying to go at it since day one.
I actually don’t care about endgame. At all. I only care about the integrity of the narrative. But based on the S4 finale I think the writers definitely haven’t ruled S/E out as engame.
And yeah, I was a bit sad that Jer came back, not because I didn’t want him to, because I LOVE Jer and especially Jer/Elena, but because it kind of undercuts the significance of death. And I also felt it was handled underwhelmingly. More on that in my 423 recap (once the 422 one is finally out!)
I do hope that the curing of Kat is going to tie in with Stefan’s arc. If it did… it might be worth sticking around for. Because.
