Edited scene from TVD 4.07 --  
Working with what they gave me, I did some editing. See what I did behind the cut.

So I cut out Stefan/Caroline (sorry, love you two!), lightened the video (damn TVD and their ultra-dark lighting) and edited the Ed Sheeran song ("Kiss Me") that was used to fit with the edited scene. I think it turned out decently. :)

ETA: I also did a version without the lightening. :)

Thanks <3
Much needed.

So, what did you think of the episode?
I'm truly pissed off even if reading what Plec had to say, kinda made me feel a bit better.

As you know I ADORED the episode. And what Julie said completely confirmed WHY I adored it (and have loved this season a LOT so far).

Amazing how much of a difference good editing can do for a scene! I wish that had been the ending... I think that whole sire thing might have gone down a little better (at least for me because then I could rewind and watch this again).

*sigh* I really love this! Thanks a bunch!!!!
Arabian: Damon & Elena23arabian on November 30th, 2012 01:05 pm (UTC)
As I said in my long-ass write-up, as a Damon/Elena fan I would have preferred just D/E getting it on with S/C before that scene, but... as a fan of the show overall, the direction, juxtaposition was absolutely perfect how they did it.

Glad you liked this though because, yeah, D/E fan really wanted it! :D
Alisha: Revenge - EmilyNolanBamfWalkkalishaka on November 30th, 2012 02:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I honestly...needed it removed from the episode to enjoy it. While I can understand story motivation's blah blah, having Caroline and Stefan over this scene made me see red. Maybe I'm too sensitive to it due to things that have happened to people in my life, but the implied rape undertones...I seriously couldn't. The way they give no agency to Elena...they as characters....have my utter disgust. And don't even get my started on what Stefan did to Jeremy, and then he attempts to take a moral high ground. Like....on one hand I know what the writers are attempting to do....on the other...they are making it incredibly hard for me to watch, I feel triggered and disgusted....and no. So I need some time to digest this episode I guess. But anyway...much love to you for the edited video.
Arabian: Emily & Nolan01arabian on November 30th, 2012 02:24 pm (UTC)
Aww, I didn't see any of those undertones at all nor did I even remotely get that's what they were implying because even with the sire-bond as we know it, it's all about the sire ordering/suggesting things and nothing that happened with Damon/Elena fit that. I felt that everything that happened with Damon and Elena was ALL about Elena's agency, it was just her feelings, her choices, her decisions being potentially more determined and steadied and real by what she felt for Damon, because of that connection. We've just seen too often since she turned where Elena didn't listen to Damon, didn't do what he suggested she do. (IE, he suggested she patch things up with Stefan, the next time she saw Stefan, she broke up with him. So yeah, this was all about Elena's agency, it's just that Caroline and Stefan are poopy-heads and can't handle it.

And, yes, what Stefan did to Jeremy was AWFUL and terrible. And that I think was supposed to be awful and terrible.

I'm glad this edit was good for you though.

Ok I just had to get this out and as this is an anonymous post that you don't have to share with anyone (but hopefully can still somehow provide feedback on) I'll put it here. First off, I'm a big Damon/Elena fan, well I'm a fan of the whole show, but these 2 are my favorites, and I love the direction they’re going, along with the show. I agree with your review of this latest episode about everything, I'm not happy about the sire bond storyline but it's intriguing and makes for entertaining TV. I really like that they're finally exploring Damon and Elena as a couple outside of the Stefan part of the triangle, and I really enjoyed watching all of the great moments they had this episode including the ending scene. My issue is that they are soo good at portraying all of the lust/love/passion/intimacy/romance/steamy/sexiness of it all that I can't help but draw the parallel between the fictional characters of Damon and Elena with the real life couple of Ian and Nina, and that's totally breaking the fantasy down and bringing it to a slightly skeevie peeping-place that I just DON'T want to be in. I get that this is the actors portraying their characters and they’re totally professional and all, but I can't help but wonder if in all the faking it for the shot if the real life doesn't sometimes creep into the shots ... yah I also get that they're filming this in front of un-known amount of cast and crew so that'd definitely put a downer on any realness sneaking in, but come on they're making out pretty convincingly and the body doesn't always know when it's supposed to be "fake" or "real", and that thought brings reality crashing back down on the Damon/Elena fantasy. It's one thing to get slightly turned on by fictional TV characters, but another to have it turn into the real people lol. I know it's wrong to even go there, but I just can't seem to stop. How do I reconcile this ickyness (not that it's at all icky that they are a real life couple ... just the intrusion on the fantasy) with my hopes that someday Damon and Elena (mostly Elena lol) can work out the issues that stand between them and become a real couple??? *sigh* I know I'm weird lol, but ... yah what can I do lol.
Arabian: Alaric01arabian on November 30th, 2012 02:57 pm (UTC)
Well, I think that Nina/Ian are totally adorable and awesome as a real-life couple so I can't help you there. As for the actors, they are professional, they are doing their jobs. Nina was making out with Paul a few episodes before, and Ian's practically made out with every actress guest-starring on the show. They separate reality from fiction. If a little reality creeps in when they are making out, that's OK. It''s not like they're actually doing anything that's R-rated. If they can separate who they are from their characters, I don't see why we can't. :)

Big big thank you for this. I didn't like how they cut the scene.
Lol at Ian's mused hair! That and the rest of the scene is very hot, it may be the hotter sex scene on TVD I think.
Arabian: Damon & Elena23arabian on November 30th, 2012 03:21 pm (UTC)
As a D/E fan I didn't like the cut, but as a fan of the show, I thought it was brilliantly done.

Yes, Nina was really playing with Ian's hair, LOL!

Very, very hot. But then they always manage to outdo their hottest scenes, don't they?

I like your version so much better. Tonight's episode made me feel even worse for Damon. He wanted it to be real, and thanks to Julie Plec it doesn't look like he's ever going to get his wish.
We got our taste of Delena finally, but it's left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Talk about feeling cheated.
Still, good job on the clip.
Arabian: Damon13arabian on November 30th, 2012 03:36 pm (UTC)
Yes, he is. It IS real. We know it's real, we watched it play out. It's real. This is just a bump in the road, but they are so it, they are so endgame. Julie has already said it's very deliberate that no one has said "I love you" to Damon and that they know exactly when/how it's happening. She's also said that this show is about Damon's journey to romantic love and Stefan's to self-love. Damon and Elena are beyond endgame. They are THE couple. This episode was all about SHOW, not TELL and everything showed just how much love there is with Damon and Elena. And how real it is. It's not going to happen overnight, or over a few seasons, but it's building and growing and has so much depth and foundation to it. And by giving us this, we got hot, sexytiems with Damon and Elena before either was truly even ready for their right time.

It's awesome. It was amazing. I LOVED IT.

(But I still wanted to edit this just to enjoy the sexytimes uninterrupted!)

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I hated the jumping around that they did during this scene. And I admit that I hate what they turned this scene into with Stefan and Caroline's conversation. I was really disappointed by how it modified what was happening. Oh well. I know they had to do something...
Arabian: Damon & Elena22arabian on December 1st, 2012 03:05 am (UTC)
I was totally fine with it as a TVD fan, but as a D/E fangirl I wanted to just enjoy them getting their sexytiems on and flail.

Good job! I'd seen a couple versions with S/C cut out, but none with the music replaced. Plus, I agree with you , the scene was way too dark so I'm glad you lightened it.
Arabian: Caroline06arabian on December 1st, 2012 03:04 am (UTC)
Yeah, I looked, but only found the full scene or the voice-over still there. :)
