Night-of-the-Vampire

Damon is so trifling {1x02 Review}

Hi all! Welcome to the second review of TVD season 1. Considering that I haven’t like sat down to watch a full episode of the past seasons of TVD in a few years and my memory might not be the greatest I think I will start with my usual disclaimer: I will write my thoughts in real time so if I make a mistake at the beginning of this post, it will be corrected by the end. There will be anti-Damon and anti-Delena sentiments (I’m only mentioning these two because it’s the beginning of the series), I will probably bring up other shows and call attention to misogynoir, racism, anti-blackness etc. Ready? Let’s go.

1. OMG Help I’m Alive is playing in the opening scene. It takes me back. 

2. I forgot that we actually get to see randoms in the opening scenes before, you know, Damon kills them.

3. Actually very cinematic openings. WOW. Totally forgot. 

4. Elena’s face at remembering the all-night conversation she had with Stefan is just so affected, like that conversation changed her entire life.

5. “Do I look adult?” Jenna, WHO is the guardian? 

6. “Something about a woodshop to finish a bird house … There is no woodshop is there?” Jenna, your nephew is a fucking drug dealer, how do you not know there is no woodshop? How uninvolved ARE you? 

7. Elena smiling being caught by Tanner for staring at Stefan is SO cute. 

8. I don’t know how people keep maintaining that SE had no buildup, they’re talking about Charlotte Bronte right now. You know, sharing interests? 

9. Stefan you are so OBVIOUS, does your head have to go upward when you hear “vampire’? Play it cool.

10. “Six classes, that’s hard to do…” Jenna, it is not hard to skip six classes.

11. Tanner may be a dick but him questioning Jenna’s parenting abilities is giving me life because girl, what the fuck are you doing?

12. Stefan’s jeans are better, thank God. 

13. Isn’t there a panic button in the room? Why would Matt have to go outside for the nurse?  So Stefan can go in. Lol, details. 

14. LOL Bonnie’s scandalized expression at Caroline’s “Just jump his bones already!” is everything. 

15. Jeremy legit just walked out of the room, no respect for Jenna whatsoever.

16. Not gonna lie, Matt looks good in that shirt in the hospital with Vicki. He had potential. 

17. The girl who plays Vicki is not a convincing actress. 

18. Jeremy looks so young. 

19. Lol, Elena, Stefan, guys, PHONES EXIST. Dorks. 

20. Seriously, all Damon does is terrorize Elena. Also how do vampires get doors to close without humans hearing them? 

21. DAMON’S HAIR IS RIDICULOUS. It looks like a goddamn bird’s nest. 

22. And Ian looks really old compared to Nina. 

23. Those stupid fucking eyebrows. I want to punch him, man. 

24. “I know I should’ve called, I just…” at least they mention phones lmao. 

25. Ian’s eyes are not expressive, he just waggles his eyebrows a lot.

26. Paul actually managed to make Stefan look like a rock solid statue when he was glaring at Ian, like he is seriously underrated as an actor. 

27. Jeremy, just because you have a hood doesn’t mean you were invisible. 

28. “Quit skipping class or you’re grounded.” No, Jenna, he gets grounded FOR skipping class. Girl, bye. 

29. Really though, Damon legit fucked up Vicki’s life. 

30. We actually see random people in MF, like there are OTHER people in the town. 

31. Elena’s outfit is on point. 

32. “I get around” is playing back, lmao I made a multivid to this song. HAHAHA. 

33. “Is she worth it, uncle Stefan? This girl you came back for?” Seriously, this is important. Stefan’s life has become way more chaotic because he has to know Elena, he’s risking a lot so he can get to know her and it’s the second episode, the Us Against The World, Profound Love is BUILT INTO the narrative.

34. Oh yes, give Vicki some pills in the Grill and Vicki take them there too like y’all aren’t in public.

35. It seriously is a big deal that Jeremy is a dealer and the show is treating it like it’s just a phase, no it’s juvie, at the very least probation!

36. I like the SE candle meeting for a few reasons. Firstly, I find it very poetic and beautiful, the joining of two flames only to realize you’re connecting to your soulmate. Secondly, Ninas fucking eyes, man, the way they shine? The way her mouth parts? And Paul’s eyes, that smile on his face… This is legit chemistry.

37. I always think I can eat and watch something but I always get distracted and this bulgogi and rice is liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. 

38. I think a really underrated scene is when Stefan tells Elena that the comet has been travelling all alone and Elena responds, “Yeah, Bonnie says it’s a harbinger of evil” and then has this look on her face like omg, WHY would you SAY that to him? Totally stupid thing to say! Cause we all have those moments where you say something awkward to the person you’re vibing on and you’re like … So I’ll just go die in a corner somewhere.

39. I also really like that when Elena says, “You seem to spend a lot of time apologizing” Stefan doesn’t deny it, he’s just like “I have a lot to apologize for”, I mean he’s honest about his faults. 

40. And the show actually did a good job with this scene showing how Elena is building walls around Stefan, she refuses to look at him, she keeps talking about getting hurt, she’s being forcefully guarded and then later on she decides she can’t do that forever and that she has something really special with Stefan even if it’s new. I never got that sense with DE especially since there was no grey area there, with Stefan, there IS a grey area like, you can decide to be without him and be away from the complexity of his existence and be unhappy or you can be with him, be in love but deal with chaotic circumstances, pick one, with DE it’s just like so be with the man who terrorized you friends and family or don’t be with the man who terrorized your friends and family.

41. I actually finished my beef and rice at the same time and I am HAPPY because usually they don’t give you enough bulgogi or they don’t give you enough rice. 

42. Elena was looking for you to tell her “um that’s a bullshit excuse” though, Stefan.

43. Damon’s. Hair. Is. Ridiculous.

44. Elena stop “threatening” Jeremy with therapy and send his ass to therapy.

45. LOL Stefan is actually REALLY intimidating because he just STARES and he’s all chiselled and intense-eyed. Matt is there babbling about looking out for Elena and Stefan’s just STARING and Matt’s like … … …

46. Like how many times is Damon going to fucking terrorize Vicki? 

47. OK so I get that Stefan’s compulsion on Vicki was weak because he didn’t feed from a human so does that mean when Damon tells her to think really hard, she broke the compulsion and then Damon can re-compel her to think Stefan bit her? Because in 1x17 Damon says he can’t compel an already compelled person to let him into the house. So. 

48. Damon is fucking ridiculous and trifling. 

49. He isn’t even funny or charming, he’s just ANNOYING and unnecessarily homicidal.

50. Jenna, having a freakout about parenting your teen niece and nephew to your teen niece is ridiculous, like how are you asking your teen niece to walk you through parenting her? LIKE OMG. 

51. I don’t even get what Jeremy sees in Vicki though.

52. Yeah, not a fan of Caroline’s yellow dress and black boots. Glad her wardrobe got better in season 2.

53. Seriously, the way Elena looks at Stefan. 

54. And Stefan looks at Elena with such intense focus, I would be so tongue-tied.

55. Damon biting Caroline, being trifling af again.

1x02 is very suspenseful in the sense that you have Vicki freaking out because Damon fucked her up, Matt following Stefan through the hospital, a lot of false scares, lots of shadows, the narrative is still a little weak though, it’s why when I did used to watch TVD again, I would start from when Elena knows Stefan is a vampire because that’s when he show really picks up. On to 1x03.

oneofthemillionarmy  asked:

One night, vampire yoongi had a dream: y/n was the vampire, and he was the human. He saw his relationship with her through human eyes, and it soon turned into a nightmare because he imagined when he died, she'd be alone forever (which the mere thought of her sadness forever gave him the biggest heartache). When he woke up, it was the first time he ever felt the greatest desire to turn her.

there were days where yoongi truly, truly appreciated the fact that he was able to sleep whenever he wanted. if it wasn’t already peaceful to sleep alone, having you by his side made him anticipate for when the moon comes out and the blanket 

but tonight… yoongi would be damned to say that was the case.

he had the… chance to see things from a different perspective, through the lenses of another in a relationship of two and that was none other than you. for once, he got to know how it felt like to be human again. to feel so much more than just the emotions within the range he could as a vampire. heightened with a beating heart when he stared into your eyes that was once a color by nature, now crimson like the blood he has flowing in his veins.

a heart that was beating for you. that stopped when time took over and the sight of you so alone reflected the loneliness he would face when you were gone from the face of earth.

yoongi wakes up with heavy breathing, as if he’s been pressed down by a boulder on his chest and restricted with his surroundings but in reality, a hand he’s come to hold until he could trace the outlines with his memory if he wanted to, gripping onto him with worry swimming in the eyes of the owner. he sits up because it’s too much to be laying down, much more when you’re helping him. it’s not that he can’t move on his own, his body could withstand and do more than a normal human but because of one, that has affected him in more than just one way, he’s having difficulties. 

he manages, though.

along with words.

“what’s wrong?” your voice is soft, gentle, innocent - too innocent that yoongi feels he’s about to regret what he’s about to tell you but he has to. building a relationship out of trust and love, trust is so important and he’d go against his words to hide things from you. especially when they revolve around you.

it was hard, but yoongi pulls through. each word chosen carefully from the start, ending with one attack after another because he can’t control his feelings that well. your hands, cradling his cheeks in order to hold him together can’t do as much. his hands join to overlap, a backing force to help you help him and it’s only until he gets out all the words he wishes to say. every scene, piece after piece, stuck together in a timeline of how things were with you and him in reality, seemed to have taken a toll in yoongi’s realm of imagination.

“please say something,” his voice is strained, which makes no sense because he fed last night. this only happens when this is something that affects him heavily. gulping, you shift on the bed until you’re caging him in with thighs casing his own. his hands are shaking when you try to move them away, so you flip them over to hold onto them tight. he refuses to look at you, he can’t and you understand.

but yoongi caves in because it’s you.

Yard Trolls Tho {TVD 1x03 Review}

Hi all! Welcome to the third review of TVD season 1. Considering that I haven’t like sat down to watch a full episode of the past seasons of TVD in a few years and my memory might not be the greatest I think I will start with my usual disclaimer: I will write my thoughts in real time so if I make a mistake at the beginning of this post, it will be corrected by the end. There will be anti-Damon and anti-Delena sentiments (I’m only mentioning these two because it’s the beginning of the series), and in light of recent events I feel the need to say that there may be some anti-Jenna sentiments too. I will probably bring up other shows and call attention to misogynoir, racism, anti-blackness etc. Ready? Let’s go. 

Tumblr deleted my numbering for some reason but it’s 2:20 am so I will fix it tmr.

I remember when I saw this scene — when Caroline tries to leave the room after Damon bit her, on YouTube and people were commenting on how “comedic” it was that Caroline grabs a lamp and tries to hit Damon in the face with it and how the jokes he’s cracking are so funny and I think when I first saw this scene air I thought it was vaguely funny too but it’s completely horrifying. Caroline is traumatized and hurt and is fighting to escape her attacker who throws her back on the bed to attack her again. Like it isn’t comedic at all.

Vicki how are you acting indignant because you’ve been playing with Puppy Jeremy’s emotions for how long and he’s like did you sleep with me because of the drugs? It’s a valid question!

Omg I don’t exactly know why but I find it so hot that Stefan goes up to Elena, “Good morning, Elena.” Then, “Good morning, Bonnie.”

I lied, I know exactly why. It was polite and inclusive and that is fucking hot.

I have it paused on Stefan looking at Bonnie and he just has this gaze that makes me all tingly for Paulerina/Stefonnie purposes.
And it’s a DIFFERENT gaze than his SE gaze.

LMFAO. “What are you doing, standing there looking like one of those little yard trolls.” “Gnomes”. Maybe because it’s 1 AM but I just find that exchange hilarious, like there are tears of laughter. “Yard trolls” Tyler? Omg.

Do we see them in a class other than history at all throughout the show?
Elena’s face when Stefan answers that Pearl Harbour question, like omg my boyfriend is so smart and he saves me from embarrassment teehee. She is SO giddy.

“Years and years of crossword puzzles, it’s a loner thing.” They tease each other and flirt, like DErs are TRIPPIN.

In fact, is Tanner the only teacher we see? Besides Alaric who is Tanner’s replacement?

“First my girlfriend, now my team.” Matt doesn’t even give off the vibe that he’s a captain.

It’s really disturbing seeing Caroline kiss Damon and get out of the car.

Lol Paul looks hot with mussed hair and dirt smudged on his face.

I actually wish we could see more of a Matt and Stefan friendship.

Another Stefan shirtless moment!

“Very Emerson the way you reveal your soul with so many adjectives.” Like the only Damon line I like until season 7.

Ian’s hair is becoming less offensive.
Seriously, when Stefan is murderously angry with Damon but doesn’t do anything about it, Paul turns into a fucking statue. I find it insane because I think it really shows how much rage Stefan is actually in but he’s containing it so he has to become, like, inanimate. It’s very inhuman and done really well. I didn’t notice this before.

Kat’s eyes are beautifully big.

That wardrobe though 😒

Salem witches … Let’s not address that they would be enslaved, like Tituba and Mary Black but whatever.

I find it unbelievably disturbing that Caroline and Damon look more like a couple than Damon and Elena ever did.

Matt, HOW are you friends with Tyler? He treats your sister like SHIT.

That Elena and Damon conversation is like … I guess. I mean, if they want to say Elena hates cheerleading now because it’s not her life anymore that’s fine, I get it, but it legit just looked like she was confused because she didn’t know the new routine. And how would Damon see her at practice when he drove away before they actually began doing the routine? Something Elena should find creepy but whatever.

OK so I know this makeout is just a dream, which sucks, but it really speaks to the Dobsley chemistry, they’re really in sync and when Stefan moves his hands up Elena’s legs when she takes off her shirt, I always find that incredibly sexy. Also when Stefan starts to take off his shirt, something about it I find really hot I think it’s because they’re so sync. And then Damon’s face ruins it.

I also find it telling that when Damon terrorizes Elena with that dream, it’s not just that he inserts a sex dream of him in her head, he lures her into a false sense of security with Stefan and then shocks her with his face. Like he goes through all these levels to fuck with her.

“There must be a shred of humanity in my brother, somewhere, but how do I make him see it and how do I protect her?” This is 1x03, guys. So Damon’s “You decided I was someone worth saving” speech is bullshit. Julie and the DErs and the show and then eventually Stefan act like Elena was the first person since Damon’s turn who believed he had good in him. When Stefan had BEEN saying, “Damon it doesn’t have to be like this.” “Damon can we just leave it.” ANYWAY.

Also I just realized that Elena doesn’t find it a little bit awkward that Damon and Stefan dated the same woman? She’s just like “You lost her too”? And Damon is older. OK.

My cat just walked in meowing and dropping one of my old beanie babies by my bed. It distracted the hell out of me.

Oh look the DE necklace that Stefan had forever and gave to Elena, the only person he ever wanted to give it to.

Seriously, Elena just looks like she feels SO good because of Stefan.

“And you’re not in uniform because?” Great delivery.

Tyler is such a dick. Like. Wow.

Although Jeremy using a bottle is a bitch ass move.

“I’m fine!” “Yeah you smell fine!” And Elena just lets Jeremy walk away. He tried to use as a bottle as a weapon and he’s drunk af, girl go after your brother.

“Caroline may have some really annoying traits but we’ve been friends since the first grade and that means something to me” yeah, until you sleep with her rapist.

So a lamp barely has an effect on Damon but Elena slaps him and his face whips to the side.

“You’re not going to hurt her Damon because somewhere deep down, you feel for her” HOW? HOW WOULD YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT. They spoke to each other like three times! HOW? DE IS SO MANUFACTURED.

But Stefan really fucking tried with Damon, man. “You hate me because you loved her and you torture me because you still do and that is your humanity” like he’s taking every fucked up thing Damon has done to him and trying to make it a case for his humanity, like he TRIED.

I know we keep saying Damon wasn’t that petty in season 1 but he was kind of fucking petty in season 1, fam.

Bonnie’s devastation at predicting the death is done so well.

Seriously, the Vicki and Jeremy relationship just makes me deeply uncomfortable.

That forehead touch before Stefan and Elena hug is everything.

I like how Damon invading Elena’s bedroom and stroking her face like a fucking stalker is supposed to show that he has humanity. Like whet?

It’s also a really anticlimactic way to end the episode.

Yeah TVD doesn’t really pick up until 1x07. OK so I did the first two reviews and I will review 1x04 tomorrow!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
