What The Vampire Diaries Taught Me

tvd

Howdy!

It’s been a whole year since the final season of The Vampire Diaries aired on The CW. I haven’t accepted it fully, mostly because we still have The Originals for the time being, and as it was just announced a last month that Hope Mikealson will get her own show called Legacies with Matt Davis, as he was on the banner with the older “Hope” played by Danielle Rose Russell! So that’s all exciting that we’re going to get another TVD spin-off soon!

Today’s post was inspired by a meme I saw on Pinterest, literally stating “what TVD taught me” with what the general fan base could agree with, so I wanted to play off of that idea and come up with my own. If you loved the shows, because even though I’ve only put “TVD” on the title/banner above, we do have to include TO in there too!

6. ) You may or may not have a doppelganger out there!

Before this show, I never really heard of the word “doppelganger” and now that’s it’s over, I actually hear and see it frequently online and other shows! It’s actually started a weird obsession that I now have, where I’ve gone on different sites to see exact replicas of people, mostly celebrities throughout history! It’s actually fun but also strange too, but they are so dead on with facial expressions and alignments too.

One of my favorite seasons of TVD was season two, we got to dive into the history of Katherine Pierce and why she and Elena look so alike, and how the both of them have the Salvatore brothers under their spells. No pun intended. I also feel after this happened, that should have prepared us for season four and eventually meeting “Tatia” in an episode of TO! We have officially met all four doppelgangers of “Amara” and then on top of that, we met “Silas” who just so happened to be Stefan’s doppelganger and we met other smaller versions of his distant relatives too. It was cool.

5. ) Nobody ever dies.

I know a lot of people will think this probably should be #1 but I had others that I felt as though they needed to be higher on the list.

Nobody ever dies on either show, and if they have died, their character has been brought back in some form, like in a dream or flashback. It’s always these two moments though that can create the most tears though! Only a couple of people have actually came back in living form, which had better consequences for them then the first time around! My favorites were: Grams, Alaric, Lexi, Katherine, and Liz of course! And we have to admit, nobody can say they are the top of this phrase, but Mama Salvatore! She was the best surprise of them all, even if her introduction scared the living shit out of me!

4. )  It’s hard to resist.

One thing that I’m really missing on my TV screen are the scenes with Mr. Tyler Lockwood. I will admit, I hated that character during the first season, but once Uncle Mason showed up and Tyler broke his werewolf curse, I started crushing on him hardcore. His death about killed me!

We’re just going to continue confessing up some things on this post. Matt Donavon! Oh. My. God. Again, this was another character that I never meshed well in the beginning, actually if I’m being honest, there’s been many times where he aggravated me, but who can deny his baby blue eyes! Everybody had a thing for Damon, which yes, I did too, but to me Matty is the true blue eyed boy that all of the girls loved!

And we can’t forget about the ladies. Hell, I’d be pissed off at myself for not saying anything about the women of both TVD and TO. So let’s discuss Anna first, yes, I thought she was very pretty. I could understand why Jeremy had the hots for her in season one and two. Hayley, was another favorite, I mentioned her on my top hottest vampire diaries and originals characters post, and I still love her to pieces! Her character just continued to get better and better!

3. )  You need a good bourbon on hand for any occasion!

There are scenes, especially in the early seasons where you could literally play a drinking game of whenever Damon (or Stefan) grabbed a bottle and a glass, everytime he took a sip, you would too! Thankfully, I wasn’t 21 during that time frame so I never could join in with some crazy, hardcore fans on that little adventure! My emotions were already messed up as it is, I did not need alcohol to cope, I’d prefer ice cream to be quite honest with you!

giphy5

2. ) It doesn’t matter if it’s one witch or a dozen, don’t mess with them!

I think if there’s one thing we’ve learned from both shows, is that do NOT mess a witch. I think between the Gemini coven during season five and the addition of the dead New Orleans witches were probably the strongest group of characters. I’ve always loved Bonnie. I think she’s one of the most underrated people on the series, but the storylines of where these two covens belong in their respected shows was very neat.

I think being able to put Kai into another world and then as Kai went on to kill Jo, her family went on to basically give their lives to safe the lasting reminder of their coven. So they transferred the twins into the only living (or in this case, un-living) thing they could, Miss Caroline Forbes. Even if that whole plot was designed to hide Candice King’s real life pregnancy, it was still unbelievable considering what we just watched beforehand; out of all that bad was this miracle.

And then you have the influence of the NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) witches after they’re dead and gone, you knew that once they brought back both Celeste DuBois (season 1) and Esther (season 2) you know they had a bigger story to the mix and when Davina destroyed the control that the Ancestors had over not only her, as they didn’t like her one bit, but the other witches.

1. ) Don’t break a brother’s heart.

This kind of goes with the doppelganger point I made earlier. Before Elijah and Niklaus showed up in Mystic Falls during season three, we thought the only sob story was the fact that Katherine used both Stefan and Damon’s affections against them. I know Damon gave Stefan a lot of shit for being the reason he killed/fed on his first victim, thus turning him into a vampire afterwards.

When the whole story of why Katherine became a vampire in the first place, everything started to make sense. She was also flirting her ass off to the Mikaelson brothers as well! I find it hilarious that one of those brothers wasn’t Kol. I feel like he would have been a better candidate since he was pure evil, I just want to clarify this suggestion is prior to meeting Davina! Anyways, I think it’s fair to say that Klaus never really fell in love with Katherine, he just wanted to use her as part of breaking the Sun and Moon curse, but we can say he dived all in as much as Damon did. He loved Katherine, he would do anything for her, obviously, but I don’t think there was anything else to expect out of Damon then destruction after she confessed that she never loved him.

After I finished writing and scheduling this, I accidentally went through my other vampire related blog posts I’ve done, and it’s shocking how many of these I’ve done since the beginning of The Vampire Diaries in general! I really do miss the show, but I have the first two seasons on DVD and I know both series are on Netflix so if I ever decide to create it as “Vampire Day” I can, well.. when it decides to work again!

What are some things you learned on both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals? What do you miss the most about now that TVD is over? Who were your favorite characters too?

8 Best Moments On The Vampire Diaries!

WARNING:
If you haven’t made it past season three or four of the Vampire Diaries, I urge you NOT to read this post! It contains a lot of spoilers!

Tonight is the night we’ve been dreading since the day this show premiered on The CW back in 2009. Fans have created friendships with one another and fought over who should be who, will be an everlasting problem. We all had our favorites live and die, and then die again. By the second time, you knew they were definitely “killed” off the show completely. However, when several of our most beloved characters would make their appearance here and there we’d have all sorts of emotions running through our bodies.

The Vampire Diaries will forever be a favorite of mine. I still can’t believe that after watching the very first episode on September 10, that I would still be so addicted! At that time, I wasn’t into the dark and blood-y types of shows. I tend to give it a lot of credit over the years because now I can actually watch gory stuff like the Underworld series, but I also watched the first season of Hannibal on ABC a few years ago. I would have never watched these types of shows without the help of The Vampire Diaries.

I decided that since our journey was ending tonight that I would do my last post about the show in general. A previous post I had published in 2015 called 11 Hottest Characters On Vampire Diaries and The Originals has became a very popular post among fans and I figured I would try to make all the fans happy once again by talking about some of our favorite moments of the last eight seasons. They might be good memories and there will a few that I remember happening that were not so happy and we cried until our eyes were red and burning like hell! So let’s start this off where we first met our favorite people in Mystic Falls, Virginia!

stef2

S1: They Meet:

Elena and Jeremy lost their parents and were living with Aunt Jenna. Anybody crying at the thought of Aunt Jenna? Jeremy was a troubled kid in the beginning. He was a boy trying to find ways to numb the pain. He couldn’t write out his feelings in a diary like Elena. He was infatuated with Vicki Donovan, who was the older sister of Matt Donovan, or “Matty Blue Eyes” as we fans have grown to call him over the years. He previously dated Elena before the accident.Vicki was a flirty, troubled girl herself, but she already had a boyfriend: quarterback Tyler Lockwood.

Elena was also friends with newly witch Bonnie Bennett and Sheriff Liz Forbes’ daughter Caroline. The snobby, blonde that almost everybody loved to hate (including me) but there was a new student at school: Stefan Salvatore.

Stefan was a vampire that was turned in 1864, he wanted to know the girl who liked to hang out in cemeteries. He was not into human blood, he fed on little critters in the woods and lived in the old Salvatore manor with his only living relative still located in Mystic Falls. However, we do see him change into the “Ripper” towards the end of the season at the episode of the Miss Mystic Falls pageant. Stefan was supposed to walk and dance with Elena, but he was having issues with controlling his thirst so his “evil” and sexy brother, Damon filled in, which made all of the Delena fans happy. I’m still reeling from this one!

In a way, I should have started this with the scene where Bonnie shows Elena that she’s a witch and makes the feathers of the pillow float up in the air, but let’s face it, Stefan going into the school and meeting Elena Gilbert for the first time is probably the main reason why many of us started watching it in the first place! These main characters become part of our weekly habit. Every Thursday, we watched their lives unfold and we fell in love with them, one by one. Even in death, our love for the characters was as strong as the next. It will never die.

S2: We Finally Meet Katherine Pierce and Caroline Turns Into A Vampire

I have to say, season two was a very chaotic season. There is a lot of information that happens in this one, it was also very, very bloody compared to the first I think!

During the first episode, we realize that “Elena” isn’t exactly herself. She and Uncle John are talking amongst themselves and then “Elena” cuts off John’s fingers with the kitchen knife. Later we realize that this is Katherine and she runs away from the Gilbert household, where she finds Miss Caroline Forbes in a hospital bed. She was fed vampire blood just before and Katherine decides it’s time for some fun. So she kills Caroline, thus becoming a vampire looking to make Damon’s life a living hell after compelling her throughout the first season.

However, while trying to hide from the boys, she gets captured and is put into a crypt by Damon, but curious Elena, wanting to know more about why she looks so much like Katherine. She meets and coaxes her with plastic cups of blood to tell the story of her life as both a human and how she became a vampire. This episode is my favorite and it is called “Katerina” which is Katherine’s real name: Katerina Petrova

I had been looking forward to Miss Katherine Pierce since Stefan took out that picture of her in the attic in season one. I loved the fact that she wanted to reek havoc on the citizens of Mystic Falls, plus the two boys she managed to not only seduce but also turn into vampires so many years ago.

Let’s talk about these werewolves though. They were sort of a late addition. We meet Tyler Lockwood’s young uncle Mason at his father’s funeral. You didn’t think Ian’s blue eyes had competition until this dude walked into the Lockwood manor! Anyways, he turned out to be Katherine’s henchman and like so many others, when Damon found out his true purpose for coming into town, he got drunk, tied him up with wolfsbane soaked rope and ripped out his heart when they wouldn’t cooperate. Oh, and then Tyler, under the guidance of Katherine’s compulsion, killed a fellow schoolmate which triggered his family werewolf curse and during the full moons, he would shed his clothes and break all of his bones to become a scary ass wolf!

In one such episode, Caroline and Tyler hide out in Uncle Mason’s werewolf dungeon, stocked full of chains to use to keep him down inside, instead of wrecking havoc on his friends and newly vampire girlfriend, Caroline. Yes, for Forwood! However, instead of running when the full moon was at its peak, she stayed and watched him transform… I was eating supper during this episode. I had a full plate and could only eat a fraction of it because I was so glued to my TV. I was also bawling my eyes out and didn’t want to get choked, because that would have been an interesting tale to explain to my parents. After that episode, my mom made it a rule that I would eat supper before TVD came on!

S3: We Discover The Origins Of The Mikaelson Family!

So this season is generally about the hybrid (werewolf/vampire) Klaus wanting to create more hybrids, because he thinks the curse has been broken and the fact that he has Elena’s blood. Well, turns out the whole thing was a damn hoax made up by his own mother!

We learned a lot about the Mikaelson clan though. Why Klaus and Elijah were running from their father Mikael. In my favorite episode of this season, “Ordinary People” tells the story of the Original vampire family. Mikael was a viking, he and his wife Esther, who was the “Original” witch, and their children Finn, Elijah, Rebekah and Kol where they were forced to become vampires in an act to claim territory of the land over the werewolves nearby. However, Esther had a secret, their son Niklaus was not Mikael’s but a werewolf that Esther ended sleeping with one night. In order to keep his werewolf tendencies at hand, she created a “curse” to stop him from changing during the full moon. She still managed to make all of her children vampires, but he became the first hybrid of his kind.

S4: Elena Turns Into A Vampire

I think the big difference between both The Vampire Diaries and Twilight series was the fact that Elena did NOT want to become a vampire by Stefan or anybody else and yet, she did and I remember a lot of people were very torn with this direction of the character. The biggest reason was the fact that we knew from past experiences with Caroline and Stefan being vampires that it’s not easy to keep yourself in check.

As a vampire, it was better to have your humanity turned off and since Katherine Pierce was still around, seeing Elena Gilbert as “evil” was a totally new thing to the fans. I don’t remember how I felt about it, I think I was curious on how she would deal with it all. However, she breaking up with Stefan in this season about killed me.

S5: We Meet Katherine’s Daughter Nadia

One of the first new faces we meet in the first episode is while Rebekah and Matt are away, she apparently had “compelled” another girl to join them in bed. This woman would sort of stay with us throughout the season, as we find out about the future of Katherine’s child before she had turned into a vampire. The child was a daughter and her name is Nadia, she is also a traveler, another witch-y/supernatural thing that Katherine’s family was originally apart of before she was kicked out of the family by her father. Klaus had killed her entire family as part of the sacrifice of turning into a vampire.

After taking the cure, (forcefully) by Elena, after she injected into her bloodstream trying to get it from her. She tries to redo it, by turning again but it doesn’t work. All it does is help reverse the age processes and she realizes she is dying, but in an act to win back an inch of a relationship with her birth mother, Nadia tries to talk her into becoming a traveler and put her spirit into somebody’s body, but she doesn’t want to. So as she is “dying” at the Salvatore house, she tries to make amends, starting with the Salvatore brothers. As this goes on Matt, Tyler and Jeremy create a drinking game, and since Bonnie is the anchor to the other side, she and Jeremy (who started seeing ghosts during the end of season two!) begin to see some old faces like Vicki and Alaric. And everytime I watch this scene, I can’t stop the tears. I always cry because it was such a bittersweet moment to see our favorites again…

Ultimately Katherine does use Elena as a passenger, after Elena tries to forgive her, but three episodes later, she dies for real. I cried at this scene too, I’m not going to lie! Despite the fact that getting through season five was a total bitch, it ended pretty good!

S6: Bamon Die and Gemini Coven

Technically, Bamon (Bonnie and Damon) die at the end of season five after the other side officially collapses, as do most of our favorites like Lexi, Vicki, but Alaric is one that makes it back to the living! Damon and Bonnie unfortunately do not and instead of going to heaven or hell (that comes later) they are sent to a mysterious place. It’s still Mystic Falls, in all its glory but the only people who are there are them. The year is 1994 and Bamon like to make pancakes together!

tumblr_nwnprdkmbc1rgpgw0o1_540

S7: Mother Salvatore and Her Family Of Heretics

This was the season I had been looking forward to since the first season! Of course, we find out about the truth of Lily Salvatore during the end of season six, when Damon brings her back from the prison world to help Stefan turn his humanity back on, but even though she does help with this task, she wants Bonnie’s help to bring back her family of fellow heretics, as they were left behind and are more family to her since she became a vampire. Yeah! Freaked out a lot of us too!

So the new season starts off with a big fire as Valerie gets run over by a truck and she and fellow heretics Nora and Mary Louise decide to have a little fun in the town of Mystic Falls. While the police academy has their ceremony, the girls set the entire thing on fire. I thought this scene could rival with what Elena did to the Gilbert house, but that’s my personal opinion.

S8: See You In Hell

As much as I thought both season three and seven were my favorites, I think this one is a close third, but I think I might be a little bias. I found it interesting that since we started the show about Stefan’s history that we would find out how his story ends – that is if it actually does end with his death, considering how this season has went, he’s managed to cheat death a total of three times!

I know there are other characters but if it wasn’t Stefan coming back to Mystic Falls in the beginning, we wouldn’t know anything about Elena Gilbert, because Damon would be too scared to come around her like that, I mean, remember the first time they met? He compelled her to forget it all! And of course, Stefan is forcefully injected with the cure by Bonnie. Technically, I thought it was a smart move, but again, very interesting move on Julie Plec for going in that direction for the character.

I think the mythology as a whole, also went full circle when Cade and the sirens, Sybil and Seline were introduced. I’ve heard of stories about sirens before, but nothing like this. I also thought Sybil is more extreme and “scarier” than both Cade and Seline. And then the last two episodes!! OMG! Who could have dreamed to see you-know-who ruling over hell?!?! I mean, I thought that was amazing!

I know I didn’t exactly list “eight” moments, I just went with what I remembered the most in each season so I went by the seasons and listed whatever I wanted to! If you are a Twitter user, I will try to live tweet my reactions throughout the final episode! I will only do this during the East Coast broadcast though, so I will be online before 8pm! You can follow me and chat with me during the commercial breaks! We will cry and laugh together! My link in down below!

11 Hottest Characters On The Originals and The Vampire Diaries!

If I am annoying you with these post about the new season of The Vampire Diaries I would suggest just skipping this post today!

Last week I gave out a small list of characters that will no longer see (unless they come back in flashbacks!) anymore. This week I thought i’d share who I have gushed at for the past six seasons! I’ve also decided to include a few of my favorites from their spin-off The Originals too. If you didn’t know by now, both TVD and The Originals will return next week October 8th starting at 8pm EST! Who is excited?!?!

Ian Somerhalder (who plays Damon Salvatore)

I have to be truthful here, if it wasn’t for Damon Salvatore’s entrance at the end of the first episode of TVD I probably wouldn’t be a big of a fan like I am! I remember hiding underneath my blanket because that scene just scared the shit out of me! Ian Somerhalder was my first vampire/guy in general that I’ve ever fell in love by looking into his piercing blue eyes! I’ve never been THAT impressed by his body but his sense of humor is another story!


Daniel Gilles (who plays Elijah Mikaelson)

When Elijah made his first appearance during season two, I was dumbfounded. This “old” dude dressed up in his suits in every episode. He’s got the best serious, don’t play any games tone that is so intoxicating! A girl could seriously get used it. There were two episodes that really changed my outlook of both the show and this character. The first was when he meets the Salvatore brothers for the first time as they were trying to save Elena, I remember that episode being VERY bloody. A little more than the whole first season actually! Then there’s the scene on The Originals where he’s fighting off infected vampires of werewolf bites. Just the words “gentleman, shall we?” and the way he unbuttoned his suit, I had to rewind that part like four of five times because I was so taken by it!


Steven R. McQueen (who plays Jeremy Gilbert)

Little Gilbert. When Steven’s character Jeremy left for “art school” this past season I was so sad, but I was also glad he wasn’t being killed either because then we’ll never see him again. He came back during the season six finale and had a small moment with his sleeping sister. I’ve always loved Jeremy, I think I’ve cried more for him and Tyler than anybody else on both shows!


Phoebe Tonkin (who plays Hayley Marshall)

I remember falling in love with Phoebe Tonkin while she was on The Secret Circle, I loved her as Faye and this darker role. When that show was cancelled and she appeared on TVD as Hayley, I was probably the only one who was happy to see her there. I was really Team Klayley during the first season of The Originals and I guess i still am, but it would never work out honestly. Especially after how this past season of TO ended. Excuse my language, but she fucked herself after trying to run away with Hope. I’ve grown to really love Phoebe as a person! She’s just gorgeous!


Joseph Morgan (who plays Klaus Mikaelson)

Joseph Morgan. Yummy man you are!! I remember reading a spoiler just before his first episode on TVD on a site that explained his past jobs in the UK but truth be told, I didn’t really care for him at first!! Once he came to the show though, man did he surprise the crap off me! And I mean that in a good way! That’s what you want the villain-y character to do.  It was the first time I’ve ever been scared of a character on the show all throughout the show(s) but now we’ve seen him in a different light and that’s been nice to see that inside Klaus cares for certain things.


Paul Wesley (who plays Stefan Salvatore)

Stefan was the first one we got to meet during the first episode. The one we were the most curious about I think. I still remember falling in love with him and wishing he came into my school! No joke I did!! I am a die hard fan of Stelena! I did have a slip up at the beginning of season two, but I’ll always want him and Elena together. However, I’ve been leaning more and more to Steroline too! He deserves to be loved! He’s too cute not to love honestly!


Claire Holt (who plays Rebekah Mikaelson)

I remember when Claire made his entrance on the show. The 1920’s episode of when Stefan first met three of the Originals on his distant Rippah days. I always hated whenever Klaus would stake her on her decisions of wanting a normal life even though she is an immortal. The fact he trusted her enough to raise his daughter for six months of her life was really heartwarming. I really miss her playing Rebekah but I’ve grown to enjoy Maisie too! I like it whenever Claire makes those cameos though!


Charles Michael Davis (who plays Marcel Gerrad)

I was going to watch a spin off of TVD especially if it included the Original family of vampires. When we were first introduced to Marcel I was really intrigued on his role as king of the vampires in New Orleans. The fact he wasn’t going to let go of his power over the city when the Mikaelson family came back into town, but I like the friendship that was there between him and the whole family, especially the love connection with Rebekah. Charles’ smile makes me melt… like seriously!


Elyse Levesque (who played Genevieve)

Genevieve was a name that I could never spell before seeing it on The Originals thanks to closed captions! This was the first witch that I actually liked during the first season of the show. She was evil and had the right edge to get what she wanted but when she tried to kill Hayley and Hope I quickly flipped my direction. Elyse is a gorgeous woman, blue eyes and red hair! I’ve got a serious weakness for red heads thanks to my nana!


Nathaniel Buzolic (who plays Kol Mikaelson)

I was so sad when Kol got killed off TVD. I really was, I thought he was a strong character considering you had the two older brother Klaus and Elijah. When Matt was seeing the dead on the otherside he was sitting in the corner clutching anything he could to not disappear like everybody else he was really scared but who knew he’d be stupid enough to make a deal with mommy dearest herself and come back to befriend Davina, not to mention fall in love with her too in another body of course! I’ve already heard Nathaniel’s coming back for flashbacks in the new season of The Originals so that’s awesome!


Michael Trevino (who plays Tyler Lockwood)

Tyler Lockwood, man! During the first season he was an ass! I literally hated his guts and then he turned into a werewolf and fell in love with Caroline. Swoon! The episode that he’s got himself chained up as it was a full moon that night, I cried through that whole scene! I was eating dinner and I couldn’t finish my meal because I was crying so much. During the commercial my parents were making fun of me because I was reacting the way I was! I couldn’t help it! I’m too much like my mom in that way!

Dripping Blood

I’ve been thinking a lot of what I’ve been watching on TV. I’m been getting more and more brave about the things I watch as in the scary stuff that you couldn’t get me to stay in the room for when I was a kid. Of course, I still run for the hills for the ghosts and zombies stuff, but vampires and werewolves haven’t been a big deal for me in years. I remember that first episode of The Vampire Diaries, when it came on that Thursday evening. I don’t remember if I had homework that night or not, but it was my senior year and I rarely brought anything home from school at that time. I do remember seeing the previews of the new series on The CW premiering and I was actually going to give it a shot. I knew I’d probably cover my head with my blanket the whole time, but I wanted to see what this show was about and I remembered falling in love with Stefan and Elena’s chemistry and that scene were Damon makes his entry with those pretty blue eyes and mischievous grin on his face, I knew right there that I wasn’t going anywhere and that Damon alone had me wrapped around his fingers and could bite me anytime he wanted, and apparently I wasn’t the only one. As years passed on, the show continued to grow, and they just started their sixth season this past Thursday. I have my ups and downs with the different seasons but I am still fully in love with the characters and the entire production.

I grew up thinking vampires lived in coffins, only sucked blood, and flew with their wings. So when I watched TVD and the Twilight movies, everything was different. Thankfully, it never messed with me, but I always thought how everytime I ended an episode or movie, I’d think to myself how did you fall in love with a vampire or a werewolf? It took me at least three or four years after the first couple of Twilight movies to come out before I broke down and watched them. I even started on the Stefan’s Diaries series, but only reading three books. I even tried to read the first Twilight book but I couldn’t complete it without comparing it to the movie. Which usually happens to me. After I fall into the vampire/werewolf scene, I decided to go a little deeper into it. My dad had discovered the Underworld series. He knows how much in love I am with my other stuff that I could probably like this too. I watched Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans and I ended up liking it a lot. A year later, I found that Underworld Awakening was coming to theaters and I knew I would never be able to see in theaters, but I didn’t think that after it came out on DVD I’d get it either, but I did and I loved it. I finally finished the series just a few months ago. While I got into that series, I got into another series which stirred far from my normal paranormal stuff, I got into the Resident Evil movies and it’s focused on zombies. Even though I will not watch the first one, I’ve loved the first. In between both sets I found out that I still have fears of the different “beings” when my dad found the movie, Daybreakers I knew I found my limit and I couldn’t finish it. Hell, my dad didn’t even finish it!

In the spring of 2013, I was really curious of how much I could watch. When they started showing the commercials of the debut show of Hannibal I was really curious to see how much I could take and how much they could put on a family oriented network. The first episode premiered late at night, 10pm on the east coast. I never watched it at night except for that one episode. I was done waiting and was bored at that time, so I watched it and surprisingly got some sleep that night. I managed to get through that whole season with only missing one episode. I was really proud of myself! The whole show was really gruesome, but thankfully I had watched quite a few movies before getting myself into this show. I did try to watch the second season this past year and I’m sad to say I couldn’t get myself to watch it. I began to watch more of Witches Of East End and that’s my guilty pleasure for the last two years. It’s a good show! At the beginning of this year though, I went back to my movies and I watched both Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, and Hansel & Gretal: Witch Hunters when our movie channels premiered them, I actually liked both movies but I will say don’t watch TMI at night. Those demons looked pretty gnarly and H&G was pretty crazy too, especially at the beginning. I’m not going to lie though, I still have both of those movies on my DVR.

One of the main reasons why I wanted to write this post was because I’m about to start my next phase or whatever. I honestly have no clue if I’ll even get through it or not, because I haven’t even watched the real previews of the show yet. I know from the past shows, it has a big reputation of being very weird and creepy! I’ve never watched the past seasons for both of those reasons, but I have always wondered about the other side. The show that I’m talking about is American Horror Story: Freakshow and I actually have it set up to tape this week when it comes on. One of the reasons why I’m watching it, is because I grew up finding more and more stories of different people with disabilities back in 1800s being apart of traveling circuses. Being apart of a freak show to earn money. I was literally thinking about how at that time, people were paying to stare and laugh at us so long ago. I know AHS is far away from that line of me understanding anymore about that part. I’m mostly curious to see if there any people with disabilities giving us who are really handicapped a bad name as in we’re not trying to scare anyone. I have a different approach to it and I know I shouldn’t but what’s a girl to do. I know I should probably stick to what I got now and be done with it, but you know I’m always curious. We’ll just see how it all goes! I might have to start looking through books instead.

The Originals Inspired FSF: Innocence

On Wednesday, I devoted a whole post for my superhero and villains and recapped my thoughts on the season finale of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. so I thought if the word fit well enough with what all happened on The Originals finale than I’d mix it in with this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. The cool part about this is that I had actually done this with The Vampire Diaries at the beginning of the season, it kind of feels like I’ve come full circle considering both of these shows are ending on the same week. (No, I haven’t cried yet.) If you haven’t finished the last few episodes then I wouldn’t suggest reading this piece at all. If you have watched it, WHO CRIED?! I know I did. I’ve been very curious of how this episode would end to be quite honest with you, I’ve been scared of all of the character’s fates. Most importantly Hayley and the little baby. At the ending of last week’s, the baby was coming and the beginning of Tuesday’s episode when Klaus finally makes it to the church the witches are ready for the birth and when Klaus goes to attack mid-delivery the witches throw him up against the wall and trap him there. After the baby is born, Monique slits Hayley’s throat that way she wouldn’t take off with her. Klaus and Elijah have a few seconds to mourn the loss of Hayley, but do everything in their power to get that baby back. The ending is just a roller coaster of feelings. It was a beautiful but a heartbreaking episode! Exactly what a season finale should be honestly.

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: INNOCENCE

The world is a cruel place, enemies spoil the simple joys of life with good is overshadowed by the bad.

A baby can bring hope and happiness  to every situation.

It’s time for sleepless nights, early morning feedings, and an endless amount of dirty diapers.

Instead this little family is being ripped at the seams for the sake of the newborn baby.

As tears roll down the mother and father’s faces, the fear of the unknown and heartache of missing this child grow up; she will grow up with the only known trusted family member left and she will give this world a run for their money one day.

This week: CELEBRATION

Bring on the high-pitched screams, tears that run down your cheeks, and the endless dreams of those blue eyes.

Every fan hates the month of April but loves the season of autumn, just cause the date is right around the corner.

This time we have double the fun, with our regular show with adding another group of family of vampires we love to hate.

The season finale was a bitch and the wait wasn’t too good either, now we find out what Katherine will do in her new life, how long Jeremy will keep Bonnie’s death a secret, and the most important question: how long will Stefan be at the bottom of the lake?

Other questions that need to be answered, how many flashbacks will there be this season, will Elena regret her decision to be with Damon instead of Stefan (still crying!) and will Caroline go to New Orleans to see Klaus; if she does, who’s going to explain to her that Hayley is having his baby?
