** Spoiler alert **
(You need to have some idea about TVD show and twilight to understand this post in that way you would be able to relate more)
There was a time when vampires were very popular even so that people wish they find some who could convert them into immortal. But there is a catch there always with the perfect skin and ageless life you have this constant thirst for blood where you can’t just control yourself and there is not any vampire you have not killed one person. A vampire might not have a heartbeat but they do have emotions; unless they turn it all off. I loved twilight and fancied Edward but even his translucent skin won’t make me want to be a vampire. Because this one life is enough I guess or if there is re-birth then clean slate… Being a vampire takes away your taste and I am a bit of a foodie so I would not trade anything for that.
A Vampire is folklore creatures that do not exist but that still has not stopped people from writing stories about it. I loved twilight by Stephanie Meyer but I don’t share that sentiment for the movies as the first 3 were an utter disgrace in the name of acting. I love Robert Pattinson but he was terrible in that it gets better in 4th one but then you have to see the first 3 where Kristen Stewart makes it impossible to go through with it. I wish they remake it and star better actors but then there are vampire diaries where you get the good stuff. They don’t just look good but they can act as well Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley. Damon played by Ian is a bloodthirsty vampire who falls in love with a teenager Elena who is his brother’s girlfriend but also looks like their ex-love Katherine.
The only diaries you will see in these vampire diaries when Stefan or Elena journals their thoughts only to be preyed on by others. What’s the point of having a journal when someone does not swoop in your deep dark thoughts? I never could make a habit of writing a Journal because as I write I wrote a lot as all these emotions had to come out in some way. I rather use my writing skills on reviewing these teenagers who are running around one by one turning either into vampires or dead. Yes, every season another favorite character dies which is unbelievable as we keep hoping they would somehow come back to life until they don’t.
I liked Edward in twilight for his compassion and love and his resolution to just drink animal blood which he gained after years of restraint. Stefan was the good one just like Edward and Elena and Stefan were like Edward and Bella. But there is a twist in the story Damon where Elena couldn’t resist the bad boy’s charm that could? I wonder how could she fall out of love with Stefan but Damon is irresistible sure we hate his guts and his lack of concern but that’s what’s him desirable. I watched this show religiously for like 3 seasons but then I couldn’t watch the blood massacre anymore so I stopped watching until Netflix came into the picture. I love watching dramas since childhood now that I can’t watch the ones on Indian television I had to find something good outside as Indian films are turning out to be horrible for example Radhe.. No, I am not a Salman fan doesn’t care about his popularity but I won’t deny I liked him until Kuch Kuch Hota hai (Indian Film). It’s not just his others are turning out to be as horrible.
Anyway, I started watching it again where I stopped because I couldn’t watch it from the beginning as I knew the past. How could I watch 3 seasons where the Salvatore brothers tried so hard to save Elena from turning into a vampire and failing at it miserably? Damon and Stefan both resisted their thirst and other blood-sucking vampires in mystic falls but still, Elena became one where she felt out of place until she switches the emotions off and becomes female Damon. They look made for each other now they are together and Stefan eventually gets over it and move on. And I do know the ending but I started this show on a whim so I thought I might add my thoughts on this one as well.
Other than the trio Damon, Elena and Stefan, there are hybrids, werewolf’s witches. The prominent (ones which matter other than a trio) ones are Bonnie the witch who has immense power that even our original villain Klaus could not take it. Then there is Jeremy who is Elena’s little brother who happens to a vampire hunter, the irony being Elena becomes a vampire in this season and his brother hunter. Then there is Matt who despite all odds does not die and remain human till now or may he will till the end. Then there Caroline who was a classic bitch before she transitioned to a vampire so much so that I wonder how she was friends with Matt, Bonnie and Elena who were the good ones. After the transition, she becomes the good one still self-centered then there Katherine who has the position of a stone-cold bitch. She keeps on appearing on and off on the show as she has enmity with Nik Klaus so she is running from him for about 500 years… she has the same face and fate as Elena but Elena was the good one and she is the bitch. So now that Elena has turned her switch off now she is competing with Katherine and she might even be worse than Katherine. We can’t have two same faced same attitude mean girls on the show for long, can we? But it would be great to see when Elena turns her humanity one and every guilt and every pain comes rushing back to her then even Salvatore brothers would not be able to save her. Klaus is the original vampire who can’t be killed but if he did die then a long line of vampires will die with him who was made vampire by him. He has a British accent and certain charm which does not work on Caroline no matter how much he tries or how much he tries to make others fear him, he is helpless in front of her but she is in love with Tyler who is bound to Klaus. Then there is Rebecca who is mean even with her humanity but then she has been betrayed for a long time. Deep inside she is quite nice but whenever she trusts someone she is betrayed but them and she misuse her power like anything and has made everyone hate her. I don’t understand her obsession with becoming a human again does not she know how many people would want to kill her after she becomes human. She would not stand a chance but she tries hard to become one even though her best interests are in being an original vampire. Then there is Elijah he is the big brother to Klaus but he is not as evil. He is the good one but family is above all to him yet betrayed by his family. He has this subtle charm within him that when he walks in the room there is peace, not chaos very unlike Klaus. Elijah is a vampire but we can’t hate him and we can’t understand what she sees in Katherine who is a stone-cold bitch in every way. He sees goodness in every one or expects to find some deep inside even in the worst of them.
So, if you fancy vampires and can stomach bloody gruesome scenes, enjoy drama or willing to take the death of your loved characters then go ahead watch TVD. Stefan and Elena were epic but then Damon and Elena are on another level. It’s a series you need some drama to pull through 8 seasons. And FYI why does not Caroline misery ever end? And why is Bonnie this impressionable? Why is Klaus so irresistible even after he did so many horrible things to good people? Maybe because of his British accent that why he got 4 seasons of original as lead after 4 seasons of TVD. It has one more spin-off the legacies which were not worth watching one season but it somehow got 3 seasons where all you could watch are ugly monsters trying to infiltrate Salvatore boarding school and Klaus daughter complete opposite of him living in guilt or burden of his father’s sins. And Twin daughters of Alaric who died in 3 seasons but somehow revived and end up copulating with a witch whose bloodline is cursed where one sister does consume the other one at a ceremony which gets boring till the end of season 1.
