From Pit Bulls to Puppies – How the Originals Were Trivialized

  “He’s here. This was a mistake. He wants me dead, Rose! I can’t do this! You give her to him, he’ll have mercy on you, but I need to get out of here.” Moments later a knock on the door. The door of the old manor slowly creaks open and a man in an …

Groundhog Die – Why Hell is Other People is the Best Vampire Diaries Episode of Season 7

  When anyone mentions season 7 of “The Vampire Diaries” I get a cold chill down my spine. A warm feeling collects down my throat and I can feel the acid burning my esophagus. Suffice it to say… I am not a fan. I am not a fan of any season of TVD after season …

What Character Arc? – Why Damon’s Transformation into a Human Was a Betrayal

  Damon Salvatore is perhaps one of the most beloved characters in “The Vampire Diaries.” And this isn’t surprising. He’s funny, he’s beautiful, he’s alluring, he’s mysterious, he’s kind of a bad boy (alright, a lot of a bad boy) and yet he’s ultimately sympathetic, so long as you forget about all the killing. So …

Mechanics of the Impossible – Magic in the Originals & Vampire Diaries Universe

The Originals and The Vampire Diaries are, obviously, set in a world where things like magic and the supernatural exist. However, magic, as in many fantasy stories, must still follow certain rules. This article is meant to give a little bit of an overview of those rules that have been established so far and of …

The Original Sin – The Vampire Diaries’ Biggest Sin

  So after season 2 of The Vampire Diaries I think, as I”m sure many would agree with, the series went downhill quite a bit. Season 3, especially towards the middle, was a mere shadow of The Vampire Diaries’ former self and season 4 was by far the worst season of the entire series. So …
