SQUEEE!! My show is coming back soon! I CAN NOT WAIT  
The CW did a congratulatory TVD for their TCA wins that includes footage from the FIRST EPISODE!!! I must squee, and squee, and squee behind the cut cuz spoilers.

First off, can I just say how AWESOME it is that Ian and Nina were kinda singled out, but together with their wins for choice sci-fi actor/actress. Aww. Okay, onto the video now. So watching this.

- Definitely looks like the vervain necklace we're already familiar with per the opening shot of Damon putting the necklace on Elena (and allow me a moment of SQUEE!) is his birthday gift to her.
- Stefan is definitely still ripping.
- Tyler is smiling.
- Bonnie is still doing her raising-her-chin/deep-breath/either I'm annoyed with Damon and/or am about to do a magic spell.
- Damon is naked.
- Stefan is being all 'come and get some' bad-assery.
- Damon and Elena are walking through her birthday party arm-in-arm like they are Prom king and queen.

Oh, lordy, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait. *Deep breath*

Two shippy-related things I noticed.

1. The video began and ended with footage of Damon and Elena.

2. One of the things that irked me because the show is supposed to be about a TRIANGLE was how after the commercial's footage would end, we'd get the promo shot of the three of them, and then it would cut to Stefan and Elena only. Always made me grr. I noticed that the season 1/2 recap reel from the CW didn't have that cut to S/E. And in this again, no cut to S/E. I'm cautiously optimistic about this. :)

I am still exploding from excitement here. Shoooooow. How is it not 15 Sept yet?

First off, can I just say how AWESOME it is that Ian and Nina were kinda singled out, but together with their wins for choice sci-fi actor/actress.

I loved that too!

1. The video began and ended with footage of Damon and Elena.

How great has the D/E focus been both here and the comic con sizzler reels? I approve so much.

hehe love the whole prom king/queen walk they have going on at the end...
& I find it interesting that the video began and ended with Damon/Elena as well *-) It COULD be them pandering/playing things up a bit for the larger fanbase, OR it could be a very deliberate move that's foreshadowing the direction of this season *=) (hoping it's the latter tbqh LOL)

You know, even if they are pandering to the fanbase too, I say go for it! That's thrown around lately like it's a bad thing. Considering that other than the 1.19 dance, we've NEVER been pandered too, I think it's about time. D/E IS the larger fanbase and you think the show/network would do some pandering to THAT fanbase as opposed to the smaller, given the moon-and-stars* to fanbase of S/E. So, if they are pandering to us, I say BRING IT ON!

I would like it to be both myself. Pandering and foreshadowing. :)

The two of them walking together at the party (I assume) is so adorable. The necklace scene will probably be infused with reminders of Stefan, so it will likely be more angsty.

YEAH!!!! - much to SQUEE over:

Damon giving Elena jewellry - no matter how you look at it, that is significant.
DE prom king & queen walk
Stefan's attitude

Thanks so much for posting this. Sep 15th needs to get here SOON!!!!

The video editor in me noticed that the second .gif (aka unf!Damon strut and hehe Elena giggle) that the scene is flipped horizontally. lol.

But yay! The Vampire Diaries is coming back. I won't be able to watch it live though. I have classes that run until 7-o-clock at night and it takes my bus like an hour and a half to get home. D: I really really hope later this year, I get a car so I could watch the show live. xD I miss this show.

Isn't it really interesting?
I mean "this" vervain necklace is a token of love from Stefan to Elena, to protect her especially from Damon back in season 1

But the interesting thing is, that this necklace which was supposed to protect Her FROM Damon, has in fact worked as a means of a bond or that special "something" BETWEEN Damon and her. :D

First time she takes it off, Damon puts it back saying "I'm Trusting You"

Second time she looses it, Damon replaces it and says those magical words "I love you Elena, and it's because I love you, I can't be selfish with you....."

Third and the final time (till date) it is taken away from her, it was again Damon (surprise!) who fastens it on her neck in her birthday! Therefore although the necklace is a gift, a reminder of Stefan but it somehow brings out magical DELENA moments every single time they both are together with it!

Weird right!! :)

Re: Isn't it really interesting?
Just copying myself from over at tvdbloodstream. I agree completely. I actually made up a story once (never got around to writing it), where the three girls are joking around about some guy that Caroline likes and Caroline requested a love spell, and Bonnie said the only love spells work when there are genuine feelings on both sides. You can't spell someone to love you, love spells basically just amplify feelings and bring them to the undeniable forefront. Caroline said well we can find out if HE likes me then, LOL! But they decided to test it first to see if it worked, and figured they would do it on Elena and Stefan. Bonnie said they needed something physical between the two of them, so Elena gave her the necklace. Of course, it wound up not effecting her and Stefan at all, but rather her and Damon.

Erm, yeah, in other words, uhm, yeah, I agree. The vervain necklace is WAY more a Damon/Elena thing than a Stefan/Elena thing.

Although originally, it's a gift from STEFAN and is supposed to be a Stefan/Elena thing!!
SO the result of the equation is Damon and Elena are two people who have a special relationship without officially having one.
They are ENCHANTED without even having any spell or any sort of magic done on them in the first place

By the way, the story plot sounds interesting, why didn't you write it?
I would love to read what happened.
If you do continue it however, give me a buzz, or anything so that I can read it. Okay?
Take care!

I'm in severe TVD withdrawal and I just want the S3 premiere now!

I'm trying not to get my expectations too high but this promo really makes the episode look all kinds of awesome. Can't wait.
Arabian: Damon & Elena03arabian on August 18th, 2011 06:14 pm (UTC)
Man, I've given up trying to not have high expectations because invariably the show meets them (and enough times exceeds them). I love this show like no other. PLEASE COME BACK TO ME!
vanimy: D/Kvanimy on August 18th, 2011 08:02 pm (UTC)
THIS. TVD is the only show I'm following like a crazy fangirl lately.

One of the things i really love about the show is how it always throws me off. Whenever I think I've figured it out something happens and I'm like 'OMGG'. I love feeling that way everytime an episode ends.
