OK! I’ve decided to do an entirely new post with a list of ALL of my fan fiction. If you have a request for me to do a pairing let me know; the only one I’ll hesitate doing is Kolonnie because I know nothing about Kol’s personality as I do not watch The Originals! And the list (the most recent is always at the top):
I was going to watch TVD 7x10 and do my review of it even though I was sure that TVD moved to Fridays but then my friend texted me what happened and I just couldn’t bother because holy shit did I not CARE. None of it sounded appealing. What she texted me: “Omg now I feel guilty for watching this instead of doing my work!”
Like, bruh. This is bad. I remember when TVD was like, “Work can WAIT. It’s Thursday and TVD is ON.”
So this was a Damon-centric episode. Shock. And it revolves around the fact that Damon has to admit to feeling guilty about being rude to Lily when she was dying for him to be able to wake up and get out of the Phoenix Stone because he’s reliving a moment in his history, the first time he got blood on his hands, and at that time he wanted Lily to comfort him. This is his hell, guys. This is what JP and CD saw fit to punish Damon with in a stone that’s meant to torment you with your worst experiences. Oh and Stefan is already out of his Phoenix Stone so we don’t even see what his experiences are because who cares when you’ve got Damon to coddle?
And then when he wakes up, he thinks he’s still in hell or whatever and he stabs Caroline in the stomach, snaps Matt’s neck, knocks Stefan unconscious and he slams Bonnie against a wall so hard that she bleeds. And when I read that my first instinct was, I don’t care because everyone is going to forgive him in some capacity anyway. Him stabbing Caroline is probably why Alaric is short with him in the flashforwards and why there’s tension but even that, there’s ONLY tension. I mean sure there may be more than tension in the episodes to come but I mean Damon put Alaric’s children at risk, he stabbed Caroline in the BELLY, there should be more than tension, there should be a constant “stay the FUCK away from me and my family unless you want to DIE” vibe happening, idgaf if he did come out of a hell dimension place, which he got out of because he admitted to wanting his mother (I still can’t get over this).
And Bonnie. Bonnie Bonnie Bonnie. She spends months trying to get Damon out of the Phoenix Stone. She manages to get Stefan out. And apparently Stefan is short with Bonnie throughout the episode for not being able to get Damon out and then when she manages to get Damon out, he’s ungrateful, and then later on he slams her against a wall and harms her. AGAIN. My friend doesn’t really pay much attention to Bonnie’s treatment but even SHE texted:
“N u know at some point I thought there was going to be some sort of break through in the show. Cuz when bonnie “brought him back” the first time he’s all ungrateful *again* to her. N she’s all like ur welcome … n I’m exhausted I just used up all my magic to get u out. N in the present stefan is getting snippy at bon for not bing able to get Damon out. N I’m just like umm… ok this is more bonnie bashing than normal. But it led to nothing.”
No one can tell me that JP isn’t illustrating some anti-black treatment toward Bonnie and that there seems to be some sort of conscious-subconscious vendetta against the character AND Kat because no one puts a character through seasons of being mistreated and used and hurt and put down and have that character NOT snap and break and turn against the people who did this to her. It just does not happen, if there is a character who has been treated like Bonnie has, there is a point where that character says ENOUGH and dipsets or explodes. If the fucking Mindy Project can have an episode in which Mindy feels like she’s being taken for granted and so leaves the office and the practice falls apart without her and people come running to her begging for forgiveness and for her help then TV-fucking-D can DO THE SAME THING. And I’m sorry, I’m just going to say it I feel like it’s some sort of jealousy. I don’t know. I pay attention to the way Ian and Paul act around Kat, I have posts about it, the dynamic these three have, the chemistry these three have, this need Paul and Ian seem to have to get all of Kat’s attention, this inherent competitiveness that happens when those two are together around Kat (no one is saying it’s romantic but it’s there), I just feel like Julie can’t take it and she takes it out on Bonnie. Or any time Kat has some serious onscreen chemistry with a male lead like Kai or Kol (not much of a Kolonnie fan but I can appreciate good fucking eye sex) that has to be shut DOWN immediately. NO ONE CAN TELL ME THAT THIS ISN’T PERSONAL.
Edit: I have just been informed that Damon stabbed Caroline in the chest. So I mean, yay for not doing something to deliberately harm the fetuses specifically but like dude, you have a thing for maiming pregnant women. You still put Car and the children at risk. So like.
