The Vampire Diaries: STEROLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are so secretly married, it’s not even funny. It’s a joy to see Katerina’s face when Stefan announced it was Caroline interrupting them. I love that he asked his mother-in-law for help… Also love that Caroline was jealous and shading on “Elena” right in front of Stefan, while he was making faces and disapproving of Caroline and Tyler. They even talked about the parallel that is their lives, and were so fucking cute about good and bad news and made faces, just lovely. I adored how the parallels between them went on throughout the episode, and that they finally put their heads together, and figured Katerina’s little stunt. Not that the official description hadn’t already completely spoiled it, but we got some more of jealous!Caroline while at it, so it was pretty awesome. I haven’t got the episode so I can’t rewatch their bits and review in detail, which means I’m probably forgetting stuff… The rest: Kat saying that the reason why Matt’s still alive is because we all love Matt, herself included, was pretty adorable for my Matt/Kat heart, and the kind of meta-reference I live for. I enjoyed Matt using his hotness to distract Nadia. We never learned how the Trio of Doom got out of the house, did Wes gave up and just let them go, or is it a part of his evil plan? The key to Kat’s scheme, the whole reason why she thought she could get Stefan to kill Damon (LOL, gurrrl, for someone who claims to love Stefan, you know next-to-nothing about him) was because they were gonna be trapped there, with nowhere to run, and we got no explanation for them making it out?
Chicago Fire / Chicago PD / Law & Order: SVU: I love my Chicago shows!!! Chicago Fire: I was SO sad for Katie, I hope she returns at some point. Now the question is what will Severide do about that asshole walking free? Plus: will Gaby retake the test? And what about that tension at the end with the new candidate making eyes at Matt? Gurrl, you in danger. Chicago PD: Erin and Jay going to her high school reunion (was she seriously wearing a short, sleeveless dress, no coat in-sight, in Chicago???), after all her bossing him around about what to wear and what to say, and then NOT going and just holding hands and talking about her past and their future… DID YOU SEE HER FACE WHEN SHE THOUGHT IT WAS JAY AT THE DOOR??? I will go down with this ship. I hate Justin so fucking much. Kim Burgess FOR THE WIN. She is SO awesome, I hope she joins intelligence soon. I’m shipping her and Adam a bit, NEGL, on top of her and Atwater too. I LOVED Adam being all into Amanda, they’d also be hot. I even watched L&O, but Erin was only around for a scene, and the episode itself was conffirmation that I do not like procedurals. When 99% of your show is dedicated to the Case of the Week, I’m just not interested (this is exactly why I’m pretty much over Castle. It’s the one show I watch that I would just quit cause there’s not enough of the characters, except for Rick and Kate, obviously, and I’m tired of that. We know next to nothing about Lanie, it’s ridiculous.)
My Mad Fat Diary: (episode 3 SPOILERS) I’m so mad at Rae. SO MAD. She had no right to do that. She can be an honest person where her life is concerned, but Archie’s is his to deal with, or not deal with. I’m seriously SO upset. NOTHING justifies what she did.
Arrow: Sara/Sin are the most adorable friends. I never really wondered how they gotten to meet each other, but now that we do know, I’m quite glad about it. What I’m not so glad about is how Roy learning about Oliver being Arrow has been pushed to the back. Don’t get me wrong, Sara coming back is huge and needs to be dealt with, but maybe the show should’ve chosen one or the other cause it seems to be overwhelmed by all that’s happening at once. Talking about that, how about Slade shaking Ollie’s hand in his living room like it’s no biggie? That was insane and awesome! Laurel attending the AA meeting, and seemingly starting to recover is great news, but I didn’t like her confrontation with Ollie and how quick her issues with Sara were resolved. In spite of how powerful her scene with Ollie was, he had no right to be telling her all that, I feel that her moment of enlightment should’ve come from a discussion with her family, not with the guy who cheated on her with her sister. I do not see how this show can spin things to make Laurel and Oliver romantically plausible, and not just because I love Sara, but because their baggage is far too heavy at this point. I can’t see them realistically moving past all that and becoming the OTP. Felicity being glad to have her own scar? Let’s just say I wasn’t thrilled by her storyline. (I’m full of ~unpopular opinions this week, who’d have thought?)

The more I watch the Steroline scenes, the more I squee, it was SO DAMN GOOD!!!!
First of all: I love it when they talk on the phone, it’s just always great both because of what they say, and because it entertains me to see the different scenarios in which they are in (cleaning, drinking, exercising, freaking out, standing at the side of a road, etc.). Such a funny little moment with her trying to figure out whether he knew anything, and him starting to suspect that there was something to know.
Then she actually went to help Stefan babysit Damon, and they were like a team against (for?) Damon, displaying their friendship and alliance all over him.
After, it was time for Hero!Stefan to go to the rescue, and I do love it every single time he does that!!! I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll say it again: I love how involved in the Tyler/Caroline relationship Stefan always has been. He’s ALWAYS in between, and I just can’t with the feels!!!! Stefan found out about Klaroline, he looked a bit hurt, and rightfully punched Tyler in the face for being an asshole.
I talked about the camera cut already, but let me repeat it: Katherine was talking about getting Stefan back, Nadia was saying she wouldn’t want to be the person standing in her way, and the camera cut to Caroline. IF THIS DOESN’T MEAN THAT CAROLINE WILL BE THE ONE STANDING IN THE WAY, I WILL CRY, OKAY?
After that epic beat, Stefan walked in, and what he said was like a metaphor for their relationship because STEFAN SEARCHED ALL OVER FOR HER, WHILE SHE WAS RIGHT THERE IN HIS HOUSE, I.E. IN FRONT OF HIM. DO YOU SEE MY POINT? IT TOOK HIM SOME TIME BUT HE EVENTUALLY FOUND HER. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE EVEN OUTSIDE OF MY HEAD? DO YOU???
Also: Delena broke up, and Stefan spent the night looking for Caroline, not Elena, Caroline. I can’t even.
Because she isn’t one to waste a chance to compliment him, Caroline had to throw out there that Stefan always sees the best in people. Teasing and laughter followed, he joked about what Klaus saw in her, which means that, if only for a split second, he had to think about it for real. For a little bit, while he was jokingly mentioning bad things, he had to be thinking of the good things, seeing her in a different light, a romantic one. He ended up smiling from ear to ear, so I’ll let you ponder about his conclusion on your own… It probably included him mentally drawing hearts around her, just saying.
CAN WE PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT ALL THESE FEELS NOW?
I DON’T EVEN
Nadia said: “I’d hate to be the person standing in your way.”
AND THE CAMERA CUT TO *drum roll* CAROLINE!!!!!!!!!!
I WANT TO YELL THIS FROM ROOFTOPS AND WRITE IT ON THE SKY: THE CAMERA CUT TO CAROLINE, AND SHE AND STEFAN STARTED DOING THEIR “WE = OTP” THING, BEING IDIOTS SECRETLY IN LOVE, GIGGLING LIKE THEY WANNA GET MARRIED TOMORROW.
SOMEBODY HOLD ME NOW.
Aww, don’t worry! Thank you :D
I’m not, actually, I was about to start writing about it now.
I’m not into spoilers, anon, so don’t send them my way.*
I don’t know if what you say is your speculation or what it’s based on, but whatever happens, I’ll be hoping for Steroline in the 100th and in every episode after that.
I’m not giving up on this ship. Ever.
*I should say that TVD is the only show whose promos I watch, and I sometimes even read the official descriptions. I try not to, but hiatus lead me to doing so this time around. The point is, unless I’m the one consciously spoiling myself, I want nothing to do with spoilers (speaking of, it’s nice of whoever it was to put that Klaroline gif on the Steroline tag… really nice.).

This is an awesome piece (as always) but what I love the most was the ‘Linty’ BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH YOU’RE LINTY NOW DUDE IT’S DONE HAHA :D
LMAO!!! I used to call him that sometimes, but then it went away. It’s just that “Lint” sounds too serious (even though lint, the thing, isn’t).
Someone keeps writing things that make me fangirl and give me unreal expectations about Steroline’s future… And I love every single word of it.
I still don’t know how I got so lucky as to get your fics in my inbox in the first place, but I’m glad I did cause this is the best present ever, thank you so so so much, Lint
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. — Robert Brault
