'The Vampire Diaries' Wrap-up Thoughts... 4/8 -- THE Love Story  
Moving along—and now we're getting to the good stuff—with my final Vampire Diaries series (well, until I begin my re-watch of the entire series and write "fresh" posts). By the good stuff, I mean that my issues have gotten out of the way and now I begin with only the happyhappy, joyjoy stuff from here on out. Yay! To start with, well, this is a bit different than my previous posts, but it's taken as long (if not longer) to do as it's not thinky-thoughts put in words, but rather video format. Originally the plan was to just do up the sexy-hot moments of Damon and Elena, but I wound up snagging more and more moments. Oh, and I had a song or two that I wanted to use… and yeah, well, it wound up becoming more the story of Damon and Elena. You know me, the finished product always winds up longer than intended.

So without further ado…



Here is part four of my final Vampire Diaries thoughts presented in audio/visual OHMYGODILOVETHEMSOMUCH! thoughts on the glory and wonder and beauty and overall awesome that is the magnificent of Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert Salvatore's love story. (Erm, FYI, one of the songs used is *not* safe for work.)

Download here.

Hmm… no comments yet on my use of episode titles on every section? I thought it was kinda nifty.

Gah!
That video's amazing! Love the NIN followed by my boyfriend Ewan McGregor. 😉 Delena is definitely my OTP.

TVD is a new thing for me. I had major surgery last year and a friend recommended the show for bingewatching while I was recovering, and binge I did! Now I've read almost all your posts and this is my first chance to comment, but I wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed reading your thoughts about what is now one of my favorite shows. I tend to get obsessive so reading your detailed posts has been great!

That's all for now, but I may go back and comment on some other posts once I get another computer and don't have to type everything on my phone. (Also I need to recover my LJ account.) Thanks again!

Re: Gah!
Aww, thank you so much.

I understand not wanting to respond to this massive posts on your phone, LOL!

I am planning on doing a rewatch of the series and doing fresh posts of the every episode with new eyes as if I'd never watched them so if you have a new computer by then hopefully you can respond to those. :)

Phew. The Closer part was quite intense! ;D Very much approve that song choice.
Arabian: Damon04arabian on August 2nd, 2017 06:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I knew you'd love the NIN part, LOL!

Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"well, until I begin my re-watch of the entire series and write "fresh" posts" – YAY!!! ♥

I love love love this video!!!!!!! So AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ I kept grinning while watching it. All the wonderful memories!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

(PS. I didn't comment on YT because I also deleted my YT account back when I deleted my LJ lol)

"Hmm… no comments yet on my use of episode titles on every section? I thought it was kinda nifty.” - Hey, I did comment on that! ;D Because yes, they are totally awesome! So wonderfully fitting!

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Glad you enjoyed it. :)

And it took me FOREVER! (Hah, I kept thinking of how long it must have taken the TVD editors to do that little bit they did of the DE memories in 6.20, and trust me that must have taken them a a few hours or so and considering they have an entire show to edit with hours and hours of footage, plus different music, dialogue, plus tracks later to add and such, I am even more grateful with what they gave us after once again doing a video... and I just did straight vid clipping with no effects, LOL!)

You did comment on the title usage but in email, no one has commented anywhere else. {pouts}

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"And it took me FOREVER!" - I can imagine! Making videos is ridiculously time-consuming. All the more reason to thank you for making it and sharing it with all of us :)

"You did comment on the title usage but in email, no one has commented anywhere else." - I think it may be because sometimes titles are one of those things that you *mean* to comment on when you start reading something and then by the time you finish reading you actually forget to include that in your comment. Either way, I'd like to say once again that I absolutely ADORE your use of the titles! So perfect and clever. LOVE it ♥

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And you know I'm still not 100% happy with it, LOL! But I was just done. *sigh* I'm thinking of doing another section for my batch of TVD is over series of posts that would mean making a series of music videos. I'm debating it, I'm not sure. Still trying to decide. Hm.... It would take plenty lots of time, but we'll see. Depends.

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"that would mean making a series of music videos." - AHHHHHHHHH ♥ That sounds like a fabulous idea!!!!!!!! :D I'd definitely love if you did that!!!!!! :)

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, I'm going to do a video for each of my couples from the show. I've found perfect songs for 5 of them, but I'm having trouble finding them for these five. Any suggestions:

- Stefan/Caroline
- Matt/Bonnie
- Alaric/Isobel
- Katherine/Elijah
- Stefan/Rebekah

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's AWESOME!!!! I can't wait for all the videos!!! :D

And here are some song suggestions :) And I don't know why, but I had the biggest problem with Stefan/Caroline. I feel like there should be a better song for them out there. Also as for Stefan/Rebekah, I think some more, er, "old-fashioned" song? (like for instance "Moon River") could work well.

- Stefan/Caroline
"Holding On To Love" by Elizabeth South
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hepf2sKe7g

- Matt/Bonnie
"Something Just Like This" by Coldplay
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM7MFYoylVs

- Alaric/Isobel
"Youth" by Daughter
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QT5eGHCJdE

- Katherine/Elijah
"Lover, Where Do You Live" by Highasakite
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEC67UXr4Es

- Stefan/Rebekah
"High Hopes" by Kodaline
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4povfmX144

Unsolicited bonus ;)

Shane/Bonnie
"I Found" by Amber Run
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj6V_a1-EUA

And I see that there's a new TVD post from you! :D I'll read it as soon as I can. Can't wait!!! ♥
Arabian: Damon04arabian on August 15th, 2017 01:10 pm (UTC)
Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you. I'll check these out... and you know that Shane and Bonnie skeeves me out. UGH!

RE: Stefan and Caroline, I know. I have a few songs already, but they're generic. My DE song is so specific and yet perfectly them. I can't believe I can't find an SC song like that. (sigh)

ETA: Good idea to check older songs for Stefan and Rebekah!

"and you know that Shane and Bonnie skeeves me out. UGH!" - lol I know, I was just messing with you ;) That, and the song is SO beautiful, so I wanted to throw it out there.

Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just one more idea, for Stefan/Caroline:

"Like I'm Gonna Lose You" by Jasmine Thompson

Arabian: Stefan & Caroline11arabian on August 24th, 2017 11:37 pm (UTC)
Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nah, that doesn't work for me, but I did find songs for everyone except for Stefan and Caroline and Matt and Bonnie. (Well, I have a few options for S/C, I just don't LOVE them.)
Florencia: DE (I Promise You)florencia7 on August 26th, 2017 11:23 am (UTC)
Re: Love the video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sure you'll find a perfect song for S/C, eventually :)

Your Delena vid was epic! I love the songs you chose and thought the visuals were gorgeous!
Arabian: Damon & Elena58arabian on August 24th, 2017 11:38 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you so much. :D

OMG, I am totally wrecked. In tears. That's so beautiful. Thank you so much.
Arabian: Damon & Elena18arabian on August 24th, 2017 11:38 pm (UTC)
I have to admit, when I was finally done, the first time I watched it through, I teared up too. I'm glad you liked it. :D
