The Vampire Diaries - 20 Favorite Episodes (Episodes 15-11)  
Sorry, I meant to post this yesterday, but totally forgot! Anyhoo, continuing on with my list of my 20 favorite Vampire Diaries episodes in order of fondness. Each one is highlighted with the first five things I thought out that I loved about each episode in my top 20, made into a graphic to go with it.

You have Season 01 Episode 08 for "Ordinary People" on your graphic...

And whoa, LJ changed.

Fixed. :)

And I think I'm the only one who doesn't terribly mind. Of course, it helps that I number my icons with subject matter and this way I can see which icon I'm grabbing as opposed to just relying on memory ('Uhm, the Damon in front of the fireplace is #8, right?' *)

* Nope, it was #9!

(Oh, hai there, new LJ...wait, why aren't I seeing your header or background...?

Ooh, there are all my icons -- in the order I added them! Sorry, I got distracted...)

These are fabulous, per usual. :D LOVING this idea. :) "Sexytiems"...HEE HEE HEE...

Can't WAIT for the top 10!!! :D

I may go back to my custom background after I post these. My page designs shrink these images. :(

Gla you like. :)

"Children of the Damned" only needed one reason to be on this list. Her name is Pearl! Everything else was just bonus!

I honestly love the moments you pick because they are always some of my absolute favorites!

Oh, my beloved Pearl, how I miss you so!! :)

Oh, I love all the Jeremy/Katherine/Stefan stuff in "The Sacrifice" -- I also love all the Bonnie/Jeremy stuff in that too. See, I could never be so disciplined, I'd end up waxing nostalgic and it would go on for ever.

Great graphics, again. I love them so much! Especially "BarbieKlaus!" :D

I can't wait to see where "The Reckoning" ends up on this list!
Arabian: Damon & Elena03arabian on December 22nd, 2011 12:11 am (UTC)
It was really hard not including the Jeremy/Bonnie near-kiss, but I told myself -- the first five things that popped into my head, and they didn't pop into my head until I was actually looking for the images for the above stuff, so they didn't make the cut.

See, I could never be so disciplined, I'd end up waxing nostalgic and it would go on for ever.

You could, because it really is once you pick the episode, pull out document to write in and just jot down the things you love about the episode, and grab the first five things!

Thank you! And had to go with "BarbieKlaus!"

I can't wait to see where "The Reckoning" ends up on this list!

I will tell you that it wound up lower than TEotA when it was originally higher. The rewatch revealed a lot of small, niggling issues, whereas TEotA only had one (how did Rebekah know that daggering Klaus wouldn't put him out of commission? His hybrid-ing came about while she was daggered).

ETA: Wonky LJ-age there!

The bit you're referring to with Rebekah stabbing Klaus--I got the impression she never thought it would kill him, and she didn't stab him in the heart, did she? She was just trying to hurt him. Or, maybe I need to rewatch that part. Hmmm.

What bugs me about The Reckoning is that Damon's the only one looking for Elena when she's at the hospital. I mean, I want him to be the one to find her and rescue her, but Matt, Bonnie, Tyler, and Caroline should have been less self-involved in those moments!

But that's what I'm saying: I respect your restraint, because once I got into it, I'd be oh, but this part, and oh, but that part! and before you know it, I'd just have to post: BEST. SHOW. EVER. Because I'm incapable of narrowing it down. It helps that I'm graphics challenged, too, so I can never truly be motivated to do something like this for that reason. In the end, it will save me from my own crazy! Ha!

[Can't wait for your next batch, though!]

He said something like "You know that won't take me out," or some implication (similar to how the dagger took her and Elijah, + siblings out) and she said, "yeah, but I was hoping it would hurt."

YES! And, uhm, HOW does Damon know she's at the hospital if no one else does?! Plus, Anna being a bitch about Damon -- considering their last bits of interaction, it made NO SENSE at all. The complete lack of ANYTHING over the fact that Stefan KILLED TWO OF THEIR CLASSMATES!!! Etc., yeah, just a bunch of little things that frankly didn't hold up as well. (FYI: Though, I just did the graphic for TR and TEotA last night, so I have some of the next batch ready to go. :)

Legit, this made me laugh, hahahaha! But, yeah, I think I'm gonna have to challenge you to try and do this now. Muahahahahahah!

I can't wait to see where "The Reckoning" ends up on this list!

I rewatched the last four episodes this week and I actually realized that some re-arrangement was necessary. SMLT is now 14, TR is 11, TEoTA is 10 and OP is 09.

What a great idea! I absolutely love the highlights for each one. Damon/Jeremy video game session was great, I really hope we'll get to see more of the D/J bonding this season.
