The Vampire Diaries S2 Promo with Actual S2 Clips!!!  
So, we finally got a promo for The Vampire Diaries that features new season two footage -- but, of course, still manages to throw in the Damon/"Elena" kiss that the CW manages to *always* sneak in previews/promos now, LOL! -- and I haz some thoughts!

- Katherine is bad-ass. Period.

- flawlessfrenzie commented that what's so awesome about getting some Damon/Katherine sexytimes action is that, even as Damon/Elena fans, we still get to enjoy the uber-hot Ian Somerhalder/Nina Dobrev burning sexual chemistry, while still getting the slow burn and build-up of the Damon/Elena love story. To which I say: Yeah, baby!

- And see what I mean? Red-bleeping-HAWT!

- Oh, Damon, I love you so, but you. are. such. an. ASS! Seriously? A few hours before Damon kissed "Elena," Stefan had literally -- actual definition of the word -- LITERALLY: in effect; in substance; very nearly; virtually -- risked his own life to save Damon's and here Damon is being all smug and jerky about macking on Stefan's girl a day later! Dude, Damon? (Non) Literal definition of a dick: Damon Salvatore. Yet, I love him so regardless. And, hee ... Stefan's facial reaction to the news is HI-larious.

- Speaking of Stefan ... that brings me to my third favorite part of the promo: STEFAN AND KATHERINE! Those who've been reading my posts and what-not are aware that I sorta ship the pair and have since "Blood Brothers." The little bit we saw of them in the clip that leaked from Comic-Con and now the scene where Katherine asks him if he wants to play have moved me from sorta to really, really close. They are just awesome together. And just in Stefan's reaction to her question, I'm loving how he is with Katherine. The thing is that I've always thought that Nina/Paul had chemistry, but I've also always described it as "muted." And it is, because of the characters. Stefan and Elena just don't "spark" together. On the other hand, with the chemistry that Nina and Paul do have (not that it compares to the uber-burning, raging heat of the OMYGOD!CHEMISTRY! that Nina and Ian have -- see above), the yin/yang, dark/light of Stefan and Katherine's personality DO spark. Much like Damon and Elena. The difference (as far as we know about Katherine) is that at the core, Damon and Elena have many similar traits, but the sparks of the character difference/interaction is comparable.

- My second favorite part (the first, of course, being, the uber-hot Nina/Ian Damon/Katherine make-out) was Damon's "we've got a craaaazy ex on the loose." The delivery was just perfection and that's the one line I glommed onto the first time I watched the preview, and the one that continues to stick out in its awesomeness. Ian Somerhalder, I looooovvveeee yoooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

- Nina Dobrev is fucking gorgeous ... as Elena and Katherine, and I love that even without the curly hair (and note that Katherine's wearing skin-tight pants, while Elena is wearing regular, comfy jeans -- awesome little wardrobe bit there), you can detect the differences in the characters. Go Nina!

- I really, really hope that Stefan's line, "I'm not gonna let Katherine come in here and destroy you!" is to Damon because as much as they hate each other, I love, love, love when we get those moments where we see how much the brothers do love one another. Alas, the line is probably being spoken to Elena. Which is understandable, and considering Damon was such the dick (in looks like the same scene: "I kissed Elena!" he says gleefully inyourface!) earlier, I'm leaning even more towards it being Elena. Still, I'd love for it to be Damon. And I don't think it's completely outside the realm of possibility because of the line we see later of Stefan telling Damon, "she'll try to break us; our own response to that will define us." So, hope springs eternal.

- Ah, Nina, I see the lacy black bra that Kevin Williamson spoke of ... hmm, so *this* was the scene that Nina was waiting all last season to do? Okay, then. (Can't say that I blame her much, LOL! Ie, Ian = UNF!!!)

- I know that some took Elena's line ("Damon's not stable when it comes to her") as showing concern for Damon, but I honestly just read it as Elena stating a fact. See? I can take my shipper goggles off on occasion. :D

- "Year of the Kat?" Seriously, CW? I mean ... really?

Long story short? In one word: AWESOME! In a few more: IS IT SEPTEMBER 9th YET?!?!?!??!

That trailer is glorious. I kind of hope that Stefan is talking about Damon too with that "destroy you" line, because I love their dystunctional relationship, but we'll have to wait and see. It's probably Elena, but editing can be misleading.

I'm really leaning more toward that it *is* Damon that he's talking too simply because this show is so awesome at seemingly almost always doing the right thing (at least, in my opinion, LOL!).

I do think that Stefan Elena are sweet, but they are too samey-samey for me which is kind of boring. And that is actually why I don't ship Damon and Katherine too. Obviously, I think that they have chemistry, but they're too similar to be terribly interesting in my opinion. At least Damon is like her when he has his humanity switch off. And as much fun as he is with it off, I prefer him with that humanity on display as long as it's still paired with the sarcasm and snark.

As for heart-breakage, between Stefan and Elena, I think that of the two, if any heart is going to be broken, it's going to be Elena's because I do believe that Stefan still is in love with Katherine -- it's just something that he's never dealt with, and in fact has built up this huge belief within himself that he never loved her, he was compelled, etc. So her being around is going to throw him for an unexpected loop ... and Elena is going to be emotionally wrecked by that.

Which is fine by me because I do think that Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley have a bit of chemistry, so that paired with the spark, opposites attract of Stefan and Katherine really makes them work for me.

I thinck athe damon and elena beling to gether becuz that are complet upesets and upesets atrack.It is pertey sad that katherin and elena love stefon and on one loves damon. I think that damon has shown that he rellt and truly loves elean becuz if he woudent loved her then he wouldent have safed her lwhin her truck fliped over when the the other vampier was gowing to kill her. I alsow now that Elana relly kers about Damon she tride to help hem whin bony trid to bern him op with fire and Elena helpd him.I mean that is love is in it iv thou you show it a bit defrent liy then others and downt you think it would be pertey cool that Elena nad damen rely kissed and that both haved ingoyd it i think it would be prty cool and that seid that thyay had to stpo becuz sooner or later Stefon would find out and that downt whot to her him and that say ok lets stop so that stop but thay coudent cunter them selfs that when that saw echother agen that had to meat in a privert spot or in that favert spot were know would ever thivk to look for tham becuz that is ther speshol spot. that would be so cool i mean you have to itmet that the would be the best thing for all of them even including Kathrin stefn xcouled be with kathern show her the way not to kill poepol and thay could live in the woodes and now would know that they are living there and damon culed trne Elena in to a vampier. that would all live ahappoly ever after just thst would have to be other poepl that would whant to ceap tham uport from echother i also dont thinck that Dameon, Elena, Stefon, and Kathrin shoud die.

Absolutely! I've missed you! With school and everything, I feel like I'm in my own little bubble and I never speak to anyone.

you've totally made my day with this! :D
also, with the "I'm not gonna let Katherine come in here and destroy you!" line, i think it is totally possible stefan is saying that to damon? he almost sounds angry ~at who ever he is speaking to, which makes me lean more towards damon. could be wrong (most likely will be) but you never know :L
Arabian: Stefan01arabian on August 22nd, 2010 01:33 am (UTC)
you've totally made my day with this! :D

Yay, I'm glad I decided to post then. :)

I hope you're right, and the more I think about it, the more I am leaning toward that being the case. I sure hope so!

That promo is amazing

OMG! Isn't it?!?!

Stefan and Katherine have been on my radar since that opening scene of "Blood Brothers," and the little bit we've seen of the premiere is doing nothing to lessen my interest in them. I really just LOVED how, I dunno, *alive* Stefan came across in that scene with Katherine, with that "I don't know the rules." Just, gah! Whoah! Sparkage!

O to the M to the mother effing G!

It's like you read my mind. I agree with absolutely everything. SO FUCKING EXCITED FOR SEPTEMBER 9TH!!!! I honestly think my heart might burst with sheer excitement and anticipation of watching Ian and Nina together. I'm so obsessed, it's ridiculous really.
