30 Day Vampire Diaries-Meme, Day 25  
Day 25 - Your favorite recurring character?

Pearl (Kelly Hu)

I will say that given some more time, Elijah might steal this spot, but as of now, it still belongs firmly with my beloved Pearl. I'm just grabbing what I said when I listed her among my favorite characters.

Ah, the magnificent HBIC that is Pearl. Oh, Kelly Hu, you are a goddess, simply put. And I refuse to accept that Pearl is gone. I just can. not. deal. Pearl was just transcendent. She was wise and beautiful, glowing and serene, and then she'd gouge your eyes or stab a wooden kitchen utensil into your stomach because you didn't follow the rules. See? The awesome. And even in her vampire state, she was so human in her love for a man centuries dead who betrayed her. Oh, Pearl. You deserved a better ending, damnit! I loved you so. WAH!

I can definately see The Awesome that is Pearl. She certainly deserved a better end than the one she got.

Good choice.

Oh, Pearl! I love you so........................

I agree 100%! Killing Pearl off was unnecessary and unjustified in my eyes, even more so when Anna was killed off at the hands of John Gilbert as well. No point to killing either of them except to move the plot along. FAIL!

Pearl was refined yet badass, would have been a tremendous asset in fighting the originals and it would have been magnificent to see her interact with Katherine, her supposed best friend who left her in the tomb all those years. Talk about a glorious BAMF face-off.

Hmm, reading you use "refined yet badass" to describe Pearl, it made me realize that it's something that can describe Elijah as well. I'm thinking there's a reason I love both of these two so much.

Elijah and Pearl. Two words. Magnificently spectacular!

Or spectacularly magnficent! (HEE!)

ITA, Pearl was just everything I could have wanted in a female vamp (refined, assertive, in charge of her femininity, badass...).

I though Rose could bring some of that back to the show when I first heard about her (particularly because we were told that she was 500 years old and I distinctly remember reading that she was going to be elegant) but... well. lol =/

*sorry we were told that she was going to be over 500 years old.
Arabian: Katherine03arabian on January 15th, 2011 03:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, over 500 and she's such a wimp.

So no where near the awesome of Pearl. :(

Perhaps one day we'll get someone even remotely as awesome as Pearl again. *sigh*

I too love Pearl. She did have an old world elegance that resonated so well. I do miss her and Anna, and am sad they were casualties of S1 wrap-ups.
Arabian: Damon04arabian on January 15th, 2011 03:53 pm (UTC)
She did resonate. Very well. (I'm still rather meh on Anna, but I totally agree about Pearl.)
