TVD favorites -- characters, duos, episodes! (REVEALED!)  
First of all I wanted to thank everyone who participated, it was so much fun seeing your guesses. Every response I got made me smile. :) Most of you definitely have a grasp on my faves, but only two got either all 10 correct, or 5 in the correct slots.

* distant_autumn -- All characters and duos correct, but less than five in the correct slots, and seven of my ten favorite episodes guess, but no five in order. So, you get a prompt (go for two, but I can't promise I'll have the creative juices to do both, but I'll try).

* modbelle -- Nine of the ten characters guess, but only two in the right slots. Eight of the ten duos were correct, but five were in the correct slot, and seven of the episodes were correct, but none in the right spot. Still, with the five-correct-placement, throw me a prompt. :)

Now for the answers. Little graphic (icons representing the choices), and the list. In addition to the top ten episodes, I also put the remainder of the episodes in order of favoritism too.

I based the picks for characters and duos on how much enjoyment I get every time they're onscreen. For instance, as much as I adore the Damon/Stefan relationship, there are definitely times when I get frustrated with how Damon is the loser-boy in relation to Stefan, whereas there is not one moment that Stefan and Caroline are on screen that I'm not a puddle of squee and/or goo. With characters, Stefan dropped off the top five (for the first time) because I included non-main characters, and as much as I do love him, the Stefan we saw in "The Dinner Party" irritated me so much, and that is something that numbers four and five have never done.

Oh, awesome! Apparently I know you too well! ;) Of course, what I probably should've taken into account when responding was that, uh, I suck at prompts. For real. So I'm just going to throw several of them out there and hopefully one of them will work. Okay:

- A conversation between Damon and Elena about his mother
- Damon and Elena getting into a situation that necessitates her going undercover as Katherine
- Katherine and Elena locked in a room together
- A moment between Caroline and Stefan (whether as friends or lovers) a hundred years from now
- Bonnie and/or Caroline reacting in whatever way to Elena having feelings for Damon

Whichever one you'd like to do would be great. For that matter, you know where my preferences lie too, so honestly if you come up with a better idea, just go for it! :D

Also, love the pretty graphics! :)

Re: Your first prompt, I'm actually writing a fic now that includes a Damon/Elena conversation brief conversation about his mother. I like the other ideas, but not sure which ones would fit under, 1,000.

Thanks again for playing. :)

ETA: FYI, I've written (long-hand) most of your fic -- I'm probably only going to manage one. I'll try and have it typed up, finished, looked over, etc. in a few days. It should definitely be up by this weekend. :)

Yay, awesome! Thank you for doing this, I'm looking forward to it! :)

It's finished (and about 2,000 words -- hah, I'm so bad at keeping things short, hee!). It's just waiting a beta-read, and then I'll post it. I hope you like it!

I stand in awe of your organized brain.

I don't think I could do a post like this because I tend to be either really passionate about something or like totally indifferent. And if I'm indifferent there are no real levels of indifference--just one large level of Not Caring. So I have favorites and then there's everything else in one giant lump! LOL. I can say, however, that 1x01 is my least favorite episode, too. So at least I know what I dislike the most, heh.

Never knew guessing will take one that far. For your Favorites categories, I just wrote the first stuffs that came to mind, I didn't even remember to put things in order, like I should've put Stefan/Damon higher up in the duos order but instead, I was just concentrating on getting current guesses....Boo Me...LoL .
Anywho, you really are very organized and collected...Wow! Just Like my big sister, she used to piss the hell out of me most of the times, when she was home.

I'll probably tackle the second one, because I can't see how I'd manage the first one under 1,000 words. Give me some time, and I'll work on getting it done. :)

Thanks again for participating. :D

Okay, I mostly have this written. I just need to clean it up (I went with #2). :)
