Yeah, that’s why I said that I’d only watched the trailer. I don’t know what she was doing exactly, but she was at least harming herself because of Edward, which irked me immensely. (As did all the Romeo and Juliet suicide crap from “Death and the Maiden”.)
poesyy said: AMEN TO THAT. One of my favorite lines from the show is Stefan saying to Elena: “You don’t know what I look like when I’m not in love with you.” I WILL LOVE THIS LINE UNTIL THE END OF TIME.
I know! It was great because it was a big “EFFFF U” to Elena, who had it coming, and I wanted to throw a party cause I thought that they were going to let Stefan get over Elena for real… I was such a sweet summer child. Maybe soon it’ll happen for real, Paul’s over it, I hope he convinces Trollie to let that triangle go.
Oh, thank you, that’s so sweet of you!
Of course I’ll answer, though I’m not sure how detailed I should be. I’ll try to keep it simple, and you can ask for more if I’m not touching upon what you wanted me to.
I’d always been intrigued by the idea of Owen/Sam and Alex together, if only because I’ve always loved both characters, and just wanted to at least see them interacting. Season 3 finally had them meeting, and their teaming up worked better than I could’ve expected (Full disclosure: I think I’ve shipped Alex with everyone, and, up to this point, I shipped her with Aaron the most). Alex and Owen bring something new out of each other, there’s an understanding, a connection, and, maybe because of it, they’ve got great banter. I’m sad that season 4 will only have 6 episodes to further develop their relationship, but I do trust TPTB to pull it off.
Season 2 opened with Neal, and I liked him and all the mystery surrounding him; his second appearance took me to love-levels. I think it might have had something to do with Michael being so charismatic (since I did not enjoy him trying to kill Rick in TWD, and that’s, I think, all I knew him from before OUaT), or with him and Jennifer being so great together, either way, I was sold instantly. I celebrated with some jumping-up-and-down when I learned he was joining as a regular because that’s all I wanted from season 3 (That, and Phillip/Mulan, SMH). I love Neal and Emma together, I hope they get their happy ending, if only TPTB fan-pandering died after the stunt they pulled with Mulan/Aurora…
And just to make it extra clear: ever since I watched the “Pilot” I’ve been patiently waiting for Stefan and Caroline to get together. The reasoning is simple: Stefan and Caroline needed to happen because Stefan said they never would, Chekhov’s gun, and all that.
I was writing a paper and I took a break and I just read about this and asdfghjkl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Paul was always keen, but now he downright said it, and Julie always does what Paul wants, so, yep, Steroline is totally gonna happen, 100% sure, I AM FANGIRLING SO MUCH RIGHT NOW.
I need a vid of the panel now!!!!!!!!
TVD: Parallels - Stefan & Caroline
↳ “Pilot” x “For Whom the Bell Tolls”
I KNOW, I mean, JAMES DEAN, is she even TRYING not to be a fangirl anymore????
And the way he was looking at her when she arrived - STEFAN YOU ARE SO SMITTEN IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY ANYMORE!!!!!!!!
HE DID NOT ASK HER TO DANCE, HE JUST TOLD HER TO DANCE WITH HIM, “NO” WAS NOT AN OPTION, HE WAS GOING TO DANCE WITH HER, HE WAS THERE BECAUSE OF HER IN THE FIRST PLACE. I can’t with them.
And the spin… JFC, THE SPIN, HIM LOOKING AT HER LIKE THAT, HOW AND WHY ARE THEY NOT TOGETHER ALREADY?
meangameofpoliticalchess said: I’m doing well. :) I didn’t really like MoS either, but I don’t really have any constructive criticism lol. It’s nice hearing from you. I understand school and stuff can get hectic.
Oh, good to know you’re okay, and good to know I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t crazy about it…
Tumblr really should have some chat thingy (instead of that useless search) ‘cause I need to catch up with many people from around here!
knives-and-lint said: What I find amusing, is that we were all WTF when Caroline stayed behind on the search for Stefan. Then this week, shes cracking the books, talking him down, and being the best friend ever. Oh, TVD. Make up your mind.
Well, my guess is that she started “studying up” as soon as she found out the whole amnesia thing. So, yes, she stayed in college, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t on top of it. Hopefully, Candice will not be missing many more episodes, and Caroline will remain fully involved on-screen.
Elena: You did all that for Stefan?
Caroline: Of course I did.
Caroline studied. She studied all she could get her hands on because of Stefan. To be able to help him, to understand what he’s going through. She did all that for Stefan, yes, and Elena acts surprised because of reasons I can’t really explain. I can’t have been the only one who followed Caroline’s “of course I did” with an imaginary “I would do anything for him”, right?
Stefan: Caroline Forbes. My best friend.
Caroline: Wait, you recognise me?
Stefan: Well, I’ve studied pictures. You are much hotter in person.
Stefan studied. Pictures. With her face. The “much hotter” means that he had already thought her to be hot when he was ~studying. Also: whoever helped him pointed at Caroline and told Stefan “this is Caroline Forbes, your best friend”. Whoever helped Stefan study ships Steroline.
Stefan: Sorry, I’m a— I’m a little drunk.
Caroline: Yeah, yeah, I can see that. Are you okay?
Stefan: Well, if by “okay” you mean “heavily spiralling into ripper oblivion”, then, yes, I’m dandy.
She asks him if he’s okay. Had anyone else done that? I don’t think so. And he’s pretty honest when answering. Communication is key, do not forget.
Caroline: Look, I know that you are hungry, but you don’t do people, okay? It just, it doesn’t end well.
Caroline: Stefan! Stop it, stop! This isn’t you, okay? You might not remember, but I do. You are better than this! You are not this person.
Caroline remembers Stefan. She remembers that he’s not the ripper, that he’s better than that. She remembers him, what he was like, he “doesn’t do humans”, it’s about HIM. And he seems to find sense in what she’s saying because he looks at what he did to Jesse and runs off. We need to mention that Stefan decided to attack the guy that was with Caroline, AND that all I ever wanted was happening because she was able to stop ripper, or at least blood-thirst, Stefan. Also: what is personal space?
Stefan: Don’t worry, I’m not gonna go on a ripper binge. Besides, Caroline said she’d call me every hour to make sure I was okay. And, uh… I actually do trust her.
It’s no wonder that he trusts her, that she’s the one person that he knows he can count on. She’s not trying to magically fix him, she’s not crashing cars, or colliding against him. She’s not pressuring him into remembering her. She’s not treating him like he’s broken, or like he’s unwanted. Unlike Elena and Damon, Caroline’s not making the whole thing about her, she’s being his best friend, and Stefan sees that.
Stefan: What’s wrong?
Caroline: It’s Bonnie, my friend. Our friend. She’s dead.
Stefan: Sorry, I… I wish that I could remember her.
Caroline: I don’t know. A part of me just wishes that I could trade places with you. Because without all the memories, maybe it wouldn’t hurt so damn much.
Stefan: *sighs, then whispers* It’s okay.
Stefan turns around and sees it in her face: something’s wrong. And he actually wants to remember. For Caroline. He stops feeling bad about himself, he finally focuses on something else, all because she’s hurting. Leave it to Caroline to find the bright side of memory loss. He doesn’t really know much of what’s going on, but he says the first thing anyone would say, and you can tell he wasn’t expecting Caroline’s honest response.
Caroline: It’s not. I’m never gonna see her again. And I have no idea where Tyler is. I just got so used to them being there all the time, and now, what? I’m supposed to just learn to move on without them? How do I do that, when all I have is this sadness, and this anger, and—
Stefan: Me. You have me. Look, you were there for me last night—sounds like you’re always there for me *holds her hand*—so let me be there for you. Okay?
And that’s when she starts freaking out, and this made me think of that time Jeremy died. You know, when he was dead, and Elena was in denial, and Stefan and Caroline exchanged meaningful looks, and then he gave her a cup of something, and Caroline was starting to freak out, but we never got Stefan comforting her because Jeremy’s corpse started to reek? That time. But this time, even though he doesn’t remember her, he says the right thing, the perfect thing. He even holds her hand, and that’s when I lost it. He doesn’t remember her, but he knows her. OTP so much, it hurts. Can you please hold my hand?
I hate you.
Like, asdfghjklñ, WHY WOULD THEY GIVE HIM AMNESIA IF NOT TO GIVE HIM A FRESH START SO HE CAN FALL IN LOVE WITH CAROLINE AND KILL US SOFTLY WITH FEELS???
Then he can get his memories back and be like “I’m still in love with Caroline, June wedding is happening” and we can all be happy!! Please, Trollie Plec, give this to me!!!!
Besides, the other option would not be fun at all, nobody has time for more of THAT triangle, not ever.
