And here is the second part of my REALLY long post.

Yes, there is more.Collapse )

ETA: Heads-up… because I totes could not love this show more if I tried, I plan on doing a slow rewatch in which I will jot down notes (as I have done for previous first-run watches) and write new posts. Some will borrow heavily from earlier done posts, others will have completely new, mostly positive (I'm sure) slants. I am partly doing this because after (finally) doing season 01, I found SO MUCH MORE to enjoy and savor in that season and subsequent seasons by delving deeper. I'm also doing it because in earlier seasons (02, 03 and even 04), I hadn't quite established a rhythm in how I was doing these. Another reason is because up through the end of season 03, I was not only following spoilers, but I was viewing the show pretty much only through a Damon/Elena lens and that was factoring into my enjoyment of the overall show and the story that was being being told. And then until midway through season 04, I was still kinda following spoilers enough that my enjoyment was impacted here and there. Yet another reason is that real life events in season 04 and season 06 affected my pleasure over the course of the last 3-4 episodes of those seasons. Finally, a dear friend of mine will hopefully start watching the show soon and I want her to be able to join in discussion with my updated posts. I am sharing all this to say that I invite any all of of you who are still sticking around with me to follow along with me, rewatching, commenting, etc. :)

So, I wanted to let peeps know that the post is coming. However, it probably won't be up until Saturday or Sunday at the earliest. This one? Is going to be looooong! My pre-post notes are over 2,000 words alone. I have already made 71 gifs and while organizing my pre-post notes, I realized that I have more I still have to make. So, yeah, this is going to take a bit more time. But it is coming, and it will not take months or weeks. I promise! I mean, I really, really don't think so. I totally hope to get this bad boy up by the end of next Sunday. :)

PS: I still intend to write a series overview post that talks about everything I love about the show, and post alongside it my few issues that were never resolved. But that may take a bit longer.

ETA: Yeah, I totes lied. *sigh* This bad boy is very likely NOT going to be done by tommorow. People, there are 100 gifs. I have not even finished the Damon/Elena section--which is at the start of the post--and I'm already near 1,700 words. In other words, this post is going to be ridiculously MASSIVE. But it's also going to take time.

This took a few days longer because (a) I was sooo sick last week (the flu *and* two ear infections—fear not, I am on the mend now, yay! antibiotics!) and (b) well, this is a loooong post (a wee bit over 9,000 words, the third longest TVD post so far!) so, yeah, it took a bit of time. Hope you enjoy!

Almost.Collapse )

Three episodes left. Yeah.

Kai! Kai! Kai!Collapse )

Alas, no gifs because the episode isn't available anywhere without logos. Sorry. I so wanted to gif some of those awesome Kai moments. :(

So, I got a job! (Yay! It's not ideal, but it's a job!) I start tomorrow and I'm thinking that I will probably be getting the rest of these up on Saturday or Sunday from now on with my new schedule. So, yay!

Yeah, I'm loving Caroline and Damon right now.Collapse )
