1.01 - Pilot (The Vampire Diaries) Gifs  
So, I'm now going through each episode and making gifs of the moments that capture my fancy, and I'm starting with the Pilot. (I have all three seasons without logos now.) Feel free to request any ones specific to this episode that I didn't snag.

Note: I will do any duo/trio (romantic or otherwise -- friends/siblings, etc.) with the exception of Stefan/Elena, Jeremy/Vicki, Tyler/Vicki. I'll do any character except Vicki.


                                         


Again, if you have any requests, just drop a note here and I'll get to them within a week or two. :)

Loved them....

Especially the ones where Elena is trying to be strong .. for herself and Jeremy... trying to be the older responsible sister... that face of Elena.. sad yet happy "I'll smile and say Yes everything is okay".... kinda tugs my heart....



and Caroline..... I guess she up's Elena in that department... poor little girl is hurting and sad that she's ALWAYS the one on the sidelines yet like a perfect socialite she is bright and peachy....



Anywho... I would looove some Jeremy/Elena nice sibling moment gifs...

Arabian: Caroline01arabian on June 15th, 2012 06:56 pm (UTC)
I loved that first gif you reposted of Elena. It always breaks my heart a bit when I see that moment, and the "I try so hard" with Caroline is when I officially fell in love with the character. Yup, I'm one of the minority who adored, adored Caroline even pre-vampire-state.

I would looove some Jeremy/Elena nice sibling moment gifs...

I grabbed all the nice Jeremy/Elena nice sibling moments from the episode. As I do other episodes, I'll grab more, but in most of this episode Jeremy was pissy with Elena, LOL!

Okie... Thank You :)

Btw... isn't it interesting.. it's while re visiting the past (i.e. older episodes) is how we realize, how much it is the actors have changed/matured throughout the years.... take Steven McQueen for instance

This totally cute and goofy looking guy



Transformed into "HOTNESS".. in about 3 and a half years.... Interesting!!



The perks of being a celeb I guess! .... plus the fact that these guys are genuinely good looking also doesn't hurt.. ;)
Arabian: NinaDobrev06arabian on June 15th, 2012 07:11 pm (UTC)
Heh, I actually think he looks very similar in that picture to how he looked in the gif. It's when his hair is longer that he really looks different. For me, it's seeing how much younger Nina Dobrev looks. She obviously is still young and fresh-faced, but the shooting of this (and the first half or so of the first season) was clearly when she was on the cusp of fully growing out of her teenage girl look and into a grown woman. (Not to say that she doesn't look ridiculous gorgeous in both stages.)

ETA: And Paul's hair is way shorter, Ian's hair is way more 70's looking, and both of them are not nearly as chiseled as the became after the show was picked up. Paul's face is so much more rounder and he looks a bit stockier, and Ian (as he said in one interview, lol) hadn't worked out in a while.

SO SO TRUE! I mean at the start Elena was like any other normal cute and beautiful girl that lives next to you... then I guess it was the "Nina" factor .. plus the "Katherine Pierce" factor.... that her transformation was something that was really palpable.

And yeah Paul in the Pilot, Paul was stockier..... I saw one of his older photos with Torrey from a movie they did together, and his face was definitely more rounder there like it was here, and I HATED Paul's shorter hair.... especially how he looks in the promo.... For me .. the love of Stefan.. both in looks and as a character took A LOT OF TIME to grow, whereas Damon was.......... BAM! and I am a goner! and Elena made me feel like wanna go run and hug her....

Ian however... Man I LOVED the way he looked.. all muscle-y.... I kinda miss that look TBH :P ...... But his hair.. umm I liked it in "Hello Brother" and while he was signaling and flirting with Caroline in the Grill... but not much after... I prefer Damon's present hair.

Nah, I think she just grew out of teenage-dom looks. She grew into her womanly beauty. During this and the early part of season 01, she still very much had the 'girl' aspect of her appearance, but over the latter half of season 02 and especially the summer/early fall of season 02 she blossomed into her full maturity as a woman.

With Ian, I'm talking only about the Pilot. He's way more muscly now than he was in the Pilot. I didn't like his hair at all in this episode. Actually, this is probably my least favorite in terms of Ian's-hotness level for me in the whole series. His hair? Other than some early season 01 episodes (not including the Pilot), I've pretty much hated it, the horrible, fake, black dye introduced in the second half of season 01 and still with us now, the awful, awful wings of season 02, the mullet of early season 03, the weed-whacker type haircut the latter half of season 03. Yeah, I pretty much LOATHE what the hair department of TVD does to Ian Somerhalder. Ugh.

ETA: I added a Stefan/Damon gif that I forgot.

Thanks for these! I snagged a few!! Especially crow-Damon and Elena..I'll always request anything Delena ahah.


Ahhh, everyone was so young...my Caroline..I started to like her when Matt brings her home in 162 candles...I don't know exactly why, maybe that made me see how vulnerable and alone she really was and how she just wanted to pour her heart out to someone and just be loved. Sweet thing.
Arabian: Damon & Elena20arabian on June 15th, 2012 07:52 pm (UTC)
LOVE crow-Damon and Elena. I don't think you'll have to worry about any D/E gifs because I'm pretty sure I'll be covering them durn well. ;)

Ah, Caroline, I'm one of the minority who adored, adored Caroline even pre-vampire-state and very early one. This early on, in fact. The "I try so hard" moment is when I officially fell in love with the character.
bangel_4e: katherine2bangel_4e on June 15th, 2012 08:35 pm (UTC)
I had the suspect you were gonna cover Delena ;)

That's a very rare thing...the majority started adoring her in season 2 after she became a vampire...she is one of my favorite characters...she is so awesome.
Arabian: Elena11arabian on June 15th, 2012 10:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah. I don't know if you saw, but I did gifs for the make-out session in 3.19 and the flashback/1st meeting in 3.22 already. (I do plan on redoing those episode though because these ones here are bigger.)

Also, I added a Stefan/Damon gif that I forgot.

ETA: Oops, forgot this part.

That's a very rare thing...the majority started adoring her in season 2 after she became a vampire

Yeah, I know. I was surprised at how fervently Caroline was disliked when I joined the fandom because I ADORED her. After she vamped, the rest of fandom joined me in my love, LOL!

You can find links to any posts with gifs (as well as other stuff, icons, fanfic, etc.) in this post: 'The Vampire Diaries' Round-Up

Thanks, I'll mark it in my favorites...do you accept friends invites or it's strictly for people you actually know?
Arabian: Damon & Elena20arabian on June 17th, 2012 10:02 am (UTC)
I'm down with people friending me if we have similar interests and stuffs. :)

Gosh, they all look so YOUNG! It's been so long since I'd seen the pilot. For some reason, the Caroline ones stand out as super precious...how did I not see her like this before?

Caroline has just always been so precious to me as one of the minority who's loved her madly even pre-vampire state. :)

By the way, I added a Damon/Stefan gif that I'd forgotten.

I snagged these two:

That second one should be *Stupid Stefan Not Recognizing His Perfect Match!* :D
Arabian: Stefan & Caroline04arabian on June 15th, 2012 10:41 pm (UTC)
I'm still clinging to the idea that Stefan's "you and me, never gonna happen" is going to be reverse prophesying which works because it's something that good ole Stef does so very well. So hope springs eternal.

I am going through my folders of saved gifs from other places to make sure I redo those and the only two I had from the Pilot was Damon's "rwrrarrr!" and Elena's sad hi-wave to Matty. Oh, Elena, oh Matty! :(

By the way, I added a Damon/Stefan gif that I'd forgotten.

MORE GIFS FROM YOU!!! ♥ ♥ I love these! I love your choice of moments, the expressions you captured. So much happened in that 1st ep. already.
Arabian: Damon & Elena02arabian on June 15th, 2012 11:40 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I'm working through each episode. Yeah, it's gonna take a while, LOL!

Erm, so, how's chapter three coming? :)

ETA: LOLOLOL! I just checked my flist and saw that you updated. Squee! :)

Aww, they were all such babies back then! Poor Elena looking in that mirror and poor Caroline at the end. Ouch. Naturally I adore the gifs of Damon, Elena and the crow in the graveyard, and I love that you included those Stefan/Caroline moments (because of course I do!) Very happy that you are doing these, I have to say!
Arabian: Stefan & Caroline01arabian on June 19th, 2012 12:05 pm (UTC)
I know! So young!

I love that you included those Stefan/Caroline moments

Of course!!!
