ELENA: “Damon, those girls are watching us again . . .”
DAMON: “Just pretend you don’t see them. Maybe they will take the hint, and GO AWAY . . .”
ELENA: “Hmmmm . . . try taking off your shirt.”
DAMON: “Elena! What makes you think my taking off my shirt will make them GO AWAY?”
ELENA: “It probably won’t. I’d just really like for you to take off your shirt . . .”
DAMON: *grumbles* “Fine!”
DAMON: “Are you happy, now?”
The last time my pals (Amy, over at Imaginary Men, and Cherie, over at My Spidey Sense is Tingling) and I live blogged The Vampire Diaries was during the twelfth episode of Season 2, entitled “The Descent.” If you recall, THAT was the episode in which that MAN STEALER, Vampire Rose, got Were-Rabies, and wandered around the entire hour, looking like THIS . . .
. . . and like THIS . . .
. . . and, occasionally, like THIS . . .
So, it’s probably fitting that our NEXT Live Blog installment should cover “As I Lay Dying,” the episode in which DAMON gets Were-Rabies . . .
The obvious difference, of course, is that while I HATED Rose with a passion, I LOVE my Damon Salvatore to pieces! So, this, undoubtedly, will be a very difficult time for me . . .
And yet, like Damon Salvatore, I prefer to cover up my sadness and fear with a healthy a dose of snark . . .
. . . some laughter . . .
Happiness is a warm (and dancing) Delena . . .
. . . and, hopefully, a whole boatload of NAKED . . .
(Well . . . not MY NAKED, of course . . . but HIS NAKED!)
All things considered, I actually think this upcoming Live Blog will be the PERFECT medicine for what ails me. Don’t you?
What’s a LiveBlog, you ask? Well, it’s kind of like a chat room where you can talk (well, more accurately, “type”) about “As I Lay Dying” with other fabulous fangirls (and boys), like yourself, while the show is airing. Or, if you’re shy, just read along. And let US do the work for you!
In addition to covering the play-by-play of the episode, and repeatedly cooing over the hotness of the show’s cast (Comments like “OMG! HE IS SO GORGEOUS!” are, of course, inevitable, in these types of forums, and TOTALLY welcome!), Amy, Cherie and I will also be regaling you with screenshots from the episode, hot photos of the cast, and fun live polls, in which can take part.
TYLER: *reads* “Who’s the hottest character on The Vampire Diaries? I’m going to go with choice “C,” Tyler!”
CAROLINE: “Hmmmm . . . what are the other choices?”
TYLER: “Hey! Don’t make me BITE YOU!”
Of course, if you miss the LiveBlog, and want to check it out after the episode airs, you can do that too! Here’s an example of a LiveBlog we did back in January, for the show’s mid-season premiere.
(Oh, and just a quick note, because we had some confusion last year. A LiveBlog is not the same thing as a LiveStream. Unfortunately, the technology we have available to us from CoverItLive does not allow us to stream the episode to other viewers, over the internet. It provides ”chat” services only. There are a number of other websites that will stream the episode for you, of course. However, us fangirls don’t have the resources – or the necessary legal approval – to offer you that particular service. Sorry, in advance!)
So, if you are up for celebrating The Vampire Diaries’ Season 2 Finale with a bunch of crazy fangirl bloggers, who share a love of both snarky commentary and shirtless vampires . . .
