Oh and HUUUUGE THANK YOU for 602 recap - i was reading it till 2 a.m. and cried a lot on Delena/Steroline/Carolena sections and smiled and even laughed - giant potato! neck romance! loool - it was absofu**inglutely BEAUTIFUL! And some points you made were so spot on and made such deep sence I experienced intellectual orgasm reading it. I wish I was able to see so deeply into the story/characters as you do. You are briliant, truely. So glad you're recapping TVD again!

What a kind message! It’s so nice to know there are people out there appreciating giant potatoes and walls of text! Thank you anon :)

/If Damon is pissed at Elena, as opposed to the situation, when he gets back, I’ll be pissed at the writers. If he makes her beg, as you put it, I’ll quit the show permanently./ Absolutely! It saddens me how people don't understand that Damon's love taught Elena to put herself first and not be self-sacrificing sufferer to prove her love to Damon by preserving memories of it. And also that Damon of all people would wanted her to not suffer. But some people watch through shippers/stans eyes so...

Reactions to S5 made it pretty clear which Delena shippers are in this for a layered and memorable love story and which are in it for Dian Salvaholder.

We thought we were swimming in an ocean. Turned out to be a kiddie pool. Never forget.

I know, I know. I’m a glutton for punishment apparently.

I don't know how you could make a fuss about the sire bond over and over and be happy with Elena erasing loving Damon. Its the same thing in reverse except this time its Elena CHOOSING to separate them. Damon is gonna be so pissed when he gets back. I hope he makes her beg for him back.

This is one of the most depressing asks I’ve ever received. There are so many reasons why Elena having her love for Damon compelled away is a plot that is valid and good and tragic and beautiful where the sire bond plot was not, but I guess the main one is that it was Elena’s choice. I’m staggered that you’ve managed to turn that around so it’s a bad thing, anon.

If Damon is pissed at Elena, as opposed to the situation, when he gets back, I’ll be pissed at the writers. If he makes her beg, as you put it, I’ll quit the show permanently.

Your 6x02 TVD recap has replaced your 4x06 recap on the best thing I've ever read about Delena. Hell it was the best recap! I got Steroline feels just from reading it, I agree wholeheartedly about Enzo, and THERE WERE VERONICA MARS REFERENCES!!!! I think you're trying to kill me and I might let you.

Awwww, thank you so much! I’m happy you enjoyed it!

(I had just been catching up on ‘Play it again, Dick’)

Hi! I've recently stumbled upon new show - Scorpion, it has only 4 eps out, and i've watched them all in a row. lol I really liked it - it's about a team of high IQ people - geniuses basically - helping to solve problems of homeland security matters. But they're not like super heroes who excel at everything - i'd hate it )) It's about people who can offer much more to the word then normal people but who struggle to fit in in normal life, to connect, who make mistakes. Give it a try sometime )

Noted, anon!

Damon had killed Stefan's friend to get on the Council and now Stefan almost killed Damon's friend to (eventually) get into the hunter's good graces. Granted Stefan didn't plan on it but still this parallel makes me happy for some reason. Also Damon outright admitting that he likes Bonny made my day. Bamon are my brotp for life!

They really are. And yeah, the Salvaswap throwback was pretty cute.
