I actually had all my notes done Wednesday evening, but didn't get around to writing this up until tonight. I guess that's the upside to the only person who responds not being able to watch the show until the weekend, LOL!

It's all about the Elijah!Collapse )

I didn't expect to write this episode up, but after finally getting to watch it tonight, here I am. Not very wordy, but still, here it is.

I continue to like a certain character bunches.Collapse )

Caroline appears like she'll be part of the final season, and I think that Alaric will be showing up a few times as well. (Plus... MYSTIC FALLS and the Saltzman school showed up in the premiere)

So I was thinking of doing posts for the final season. Any interest?

You guys... it has been only FIFTEEN DAYS! That's right it barely took me two weeks to get the next section up! Is that not amazing? I'm so proud of myself. (WHEE!) Now I know the next section will take a lot longer because it has a LOT of stuff in it as it is basically an overview of ALL of my favorite things about TVD, so yeah, that will take a while, but, you guys, FIFTEEN DAYS between sections! Part two of what I consider the best episodes of the series. (NOTE: Not my favorite episodes, but the best in terms of writing, direction, arcs, least amount of confuzzling moments, etc.) You'll find the last 25 here listed in chronological order. As in the first section, I have my description of each episode and why I consider them the best to a paragraph or two. Read on....

It hasn't been a century... it's just the next year! Anyhoo, here is the next section of my Vampire Diaries wrap-up. This is a two-parter: What I consider the best episodes of the series. You'll find the first 25 here listed in chronological order. In the second post, I will list my absolute favorites (no specific number, just the ones that I put little stars next to when picking them). Narrowing this down was a process (understandably). I first was going to do only 20, but I just couldn't do it, so I decided on 25, but then a few more kept sneaking their way in, so I thought... oh heck, I'll do 50 and 50 it stayed. And so here is part one. Shockingly, I have my description of each episode and why I consider them the best to a paragraph (admittedly, some of them are on the lengthy side, but still only a paragraph). Read on....

Note: Although I posted the Britney Spears ranking already, this is the first one I did.

So Demi Lovato's epic "Tell Me You Love Me" video got me thinking of other awesome videos out there and I randomly decided that I wanted to rank music videos of certain singers and the first one who came to mind was Taylor Swift because she's had some great ones that I've really enjoyed. So I sat down and watched them all and did my ranking. Firstly, I did not include the few videos that was just concert footage so "Fearless," "Sparks Fly," "Red," "The Last Time," and "New Romantics" are not included. Also, I am big on story over high-concept. Finally, this obviously was way subjective.

Taylor can't come to the phone.Collapse )

A note about Britney: I like a few of her songs, but I've never really gotten the whole "BRITNEY!" thing so I did not come at this from a stan point of view at all and judged all of these just on the video themselves. Therefore, my ranking will likely not be what is a usual ranking of Brit-vids. With that said... I get it now. Britney Spears is awesome and I totally love her. I have been missing out. (The Blackout unreleased songs are amazing!!!) Anyhoo, on with the (very subjective) ranking of Britney Spears music videos...

It's Britney, bitch!Collapse )

Yeah, I know it's been like a century. Anyone who's reading these probably thought I had forgotten or was no longer doing them. Nope, just realllly taking my time. Phew! Anyhoo, here is the next section of my Vampire Diaries eight part wrap-up series. I was originally going to just have my 20 favorite characters, but eventually decided to expand it to 25. I'm not sure why, but, hey, it's my list, my series of posts, so why not? I was very good, kept all of this to roughly one paragraph except for the first two. These are in chronological order. I don't imagine there will be too many surprises. Enjoy! (Just a heads up... more comments does encourage me to write these faster!)

Alrighty then, let's get to it…

At last, here I am with part 2 of this section of my final Vampire Diaries series. Here is the last batch of my favorite scenes or moments. As in the ones from seasons 01-04, some of these may surprise you and some scenes/moments *not* on here will likely be surprising as well. I took my couple-girl bias out of the equation and just tried to take the scene and/or moment on the basis of its own merit (with a bit of the overall narrative at play). (Spoiler alert: This means that certain dances and love scenes are not present!)

Let's go…
