he's one of my favorites

Confession:  I got put in the mental hospital this year for the first time in a decade. All I had for company was a copy of Asunder. During that time, Cole became real. He was there and he helped me through that stay. I will always be thankful for Bioware lending me Cole to help me through such a hard time. He’s one of my favorite characters and I will never forget him.

The End of The Vampire Diaries

I haven’t really written about my feels regarding the end of The Vampire Diaries. I’ll be honest, I was surprised by my emotions at the announcement. Maybe it was because I was there in the room with the actors I’ve spent 7 years watching play the characters I love. Maybe it was because the cast was so emotional (Not Paul though. He be cool.). So I took some time to think about it because truly I’ve been SCREAMING for years that The Vampire Diaries needs to end. So I wondered, what was it that really got me?

Kevin Williamson.

I love Kevin Williamson. He’s one of my favorite writers. It’s difficult to be a teenager from the nineties and NOT love Kevin. I’ve loved him since Dawson’s Creek. Pretty much ever since he realized that Joey and Pacey belonged together (with an assist by Julie Plec). That’s when I knew he understood you have to go wherever the story takes you. The best writers are always the ones who understand that.

What Kevin and Julie created in the early seasons of The Vampire Diaries was truly spectacular. I actually discussed it with my fellow JAW buddy Chelsea at SDCC. Season 1 and Season 2 of The Vampire Diaries is probably one of the best examples of a flawless narrative. A wonderfully crafted story. If someone ever asks me point to a perfect TV season - Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 2 will be my first answer. The Vampire Diaries Season 2 will be my second.

And I know people will scoff at me. The Vampire Diaries? Yes, The Vampire Diaries. It was an excellently written TV show. Unfortunately, the story went off the rails in about Season 4. I don’t say that because Delena got together. I actually believed it was very much time for Damon and Elena to be together. What I didn’t like was HOW the story was constructed. I don’t think the show ever truly recovered. 

I know a lot of people blame Julie, and there’s blame there for sure, but Caroline Dries was running TVD starting S5 while Julie was primarily focused on The Originals. It was an EPIC disaster for the most part. Don’t get me wrong, TVD still has storylines that keep me watching. Characters I still very much care about, but it’s not the same show it once was. I firmly believe that’s primarily because of the writing. So, I was not sad when Dries left.

I was, however, SHOCKED at Kevin’s return. I wasn’t expecting that and I couldn’t be more thrilled. In the goodbye video, Kevin talked about WHY he started TVD with Julie. He recently lost someone and he was grieving. Julie told him he needed to work and she brought him TVD. Kevin said he immediately connected to Elena and her grief. He connected to the love story between Stefan and Elena and how these two people brought each other back to life. For me, what Kevin was trying to say is that telling the story of The Vampire Diaries helped bring him back to life as well.

And that’s when I got emotional. Because that’s what stories are suppose to do. That’s what writing is suppose to do. It’s cathartic. It connects us to our humanity. It allows us to feel - no matter the emotions. It can be grief, joy, anger, fear… whatever. A story takes you on a journey and when you come out on the other side hopefully you are changed for the better.

Kevin has always been extremely vocal for his love of Stefan and Elena’s story. A lot of Stelena fans now believe that because Kevin is back Stefan and Elena will be endgame. Truthfully, I didn’t necessarily get that sense nor do I think that’s what Kevin was saying. Not that I’m saying it can’t happen or that I won’t be thrilled if it does. What I’m saying is that… endgame doesn’t really matter to me anymore. What matters to me the most is that TVD, in its final season, tries to recapture the quality writing that made me fall in love with it in the first place. I just want Kevin and Julie to tell a good story, no matter the ending. That’s how I want to say goodbye. And I feel like, with the show back in their hands, there’s a real chance of that now. 

And so I find, for the first time in years, to be truly excited about new season of The Vampire Diaries. I’m ready to go on this last chapter with the characters I love, to find out what happens to them… and to finally let them go. 

Headcanon;

N is Ghetsis’ biological son, that he abondoned as a baby. 

When he came upon him again he realized he couldn’t get rid of him the easy way, so he decided to use him as a puppet for his masterplan. Believing more people would follow a young, childish and naive kid, than a wounded, older man.

Why do I believe they’re actually related? Their hair.
It’s literally the same in texture, color ect.

It would also make more sense if they were related by blood. Why else would Ghetsis take N in as an adoptive son? He’s a narcissistic sociopath who wants nothing but full control, he couldn’t care less about a child. 


Also the N is a Zoroark theory headcanon is cool too. It’s probably the most likely, but I don’t get it to work out 100% with what I’ve seen S:’

Hey, I'm sorry but do you know what's going on with the Tyler Posey hate? I think I've missed something and I don't know what's happening now. He's one of my favorite actors and I just don't understand what's going on..

He came out as gay and everybody was happy and excited and then as it turns out it was all a joke so people (including me) were and are really mad at him for using something like coming out as a joke and yeah anywayssss he apologized today so that’s pretty good I mean at least he’s trying I do appreciate that tbh

anonymous asked:

What do you think of Faith/Angel?

They have one of my favorite relationships in the show, tbh, they give me a lot of feels, but I don’t ship them romantically. They’re one of my BROTPs, definitely, but I have never shipped them together. I think this is mostly because I could never really connect to Angel as a character. I didn’t care about him on BTVS, and he grew on me on ATS - I appreciate him so much more. But he’s definitely not one of my favorite characters, so it’s hard for me to ship him with anyone, really. Especially not with Faith, who is actually one of my favorite characters in the Buffyverse.

I see, however, much more chemistry between Angel and Spike than between Angel and any other character, so there’s that…

Don't worry hon, I don't want you to feel lonesome, I'll keep the questions coming for a bit :) For me, personally, one of my FAVORITE moments in VC history is seeing Louis get uber physical with Lestat by slamming him down and stepping on him when he's mortal in TOTB. One of my favorite characters, one of my favorite books, what is a moment like that for you and with whom?

oh shit, am I really supposed to answer that on my tumblr? *groans internally* By “a moment like that” you mean the OTP making it hard for you to breathe? ;) of just a favourite scene or line? 
Bath scene from TVA, #dontjudgemepls, also a moment when Marius guides Amadeo’s hands over marble sculptures in the palazzo, I mean holyshitletmelive

However, I have several favourite moments and general themes scattered through the series that make up for the whole nonsense xD Idk why but Louis seeing the Mediterranean Sea and being sad because it was black and not blue always gets me. I guess I’m just emotional over this sea and the colour of its waters and I feel bad for Louis because even his supernatural senses won’t make up for the sight of it in the sun. Almost every description of art and architecture, description of cities, sounds, smells, people. Marius weeping over Rome rips my heart out of my chest. Marius’ maker describing what he saw in his blood made my lose my shit. David’s description of Armand’s hair. A few random interactions, tiny moments of hands touching, a few embraces, a few fights. These are moments that make this series the love of my life

Favorite Golddust look?

I think his coolest look is probably the one he has now, it’s a rad paint design, but my favorite Goldust look is the first one, because it was the creepiest, in part because it was so obviously just Dustin Rhodes being a weirdo. There’s something about the simplicity, even a sort of cheapness to it, that made him a little unsettling, along with the fact that he’s great with facial expressions and acting in general.

i made a joke in the chat during one of my favorite youtubers streams and he had a really good laugh at it…i don’t think i could be any happier i’ve achieved peak happiness

I got a story to tell. One of my friends showed me this coin that he has. It’s probably one of his favorite pieces of memorabilia. My friend received this coin from one of his best friends 2 days before he killed himself. As you can see in the first picture, a man is walking on a path while the forest he is walking in is on fire. In the second picture, the man is gone, the forest is fine again, and at the bottom it says “SERENITY”, peace. This is so symbolic to me, that his friend that passed away is at peace now. When I saw this coin, I was absolutely astonished. There is more to life than we think @sixpenceee
