Greetings Fangbangers! Has the TVD hiatus got you down?
Are you counting down the days until January 5th on your calendar with bloody red X’s?
Are you so starved for original TVD content that you are beginning to understand how Stefan felt in “Miss Mystic Falls?”
Well, try not to lose your head . . .
. . . because help is on the way . . .
Those of you who’ve read my blog in the past, know that I have a little TVD hiatus tradition of ranking and analyzing what I feel are the best Damon and Elena moments from the current season. So, if you are feeling extra special
bored nostalgic, feel free to check out my Top Ten Delena moments from Season 1, the first half of Season 2, and the second half of Season 2. Now, that’s what I call compelling reading material . . .
This season, I’ve decided to tweak the formula, just a little bit. You see, as I was preparing to do my usual Top Ten Delena Moments post for the first half of Season 3, I ran into a rather interesting problem. You see, back in Seasons 1 and 2, us Delena fans were sort of the underdogs in this competition. I mean sure, we had our jaw-dropping, heart pounding, swoon-worthy shipper moments . . . like the Epic Mating Dance in “Miss Mystic Falls” . . .
. . . the Forgotten Love Declaration in “Rose” . . .
. . . the “I will always choose you” monologue from “The Last Dance” . . .
. . . and, of course, the “Deathbed Kissy Thing” in “As I Law Dying” . . .
But, for the most part, being a Delena fan was about rejoicing in the subtle, sometimes hidden, gestures of love that these two passionate individuals shared, beneath the surface. When viewed together, these isolated scenes created a sort of secret romantic subtext for the observant viewer.
We’d catch a longing look here . . .
. . . a lingering touch there . . .
. . . a mutual expression of concern for one another’s well being here . . .
. . . a lighthearted moment between two people who are slowly, but surely, venturing into the territory of “more than just friends” over there . . .
. . . and of course, a sexually tense instance of personal space invasion right here . . .
Now, Season 3 is here. With Stefan in his Cocky Ripper Douche mode, and Damon and Elena spending more and more time alone together, Team Delena is no longer the underdog in this story. We’re IN THE LEAD, BABY!
Being the so-called Team to Beat in these Relationship Wars means more scenes for our chosen ship, each week . . . and more overt gestures of love from our dreamy eyed protagonists. It also makes ranking Damon and Elena moments a much more more difficult task, even for Seasoned Delena fans like myself. By way of example, I usually have no trouble selecting which ten scenes will be featured in my Delena-centric post for the season. But now, after watching just the first NINE episodes of Season 3, I have collected no less than FOURTEEN Delena scenes that I felt were absolutely crucial to include in the countdown.
That’s where you guys come in. Below, I’m going to share with you video clips of all fourteen of my favorite Delena moments. Then, I’m going to let you vote on your favorite.
Now, unfortunately, Poll Daddy doesn’t seem to allow you, the voter, to actually rank the moments from most to least favorite . . .
However, that should not stop you from creating your own top ten list in the Comment Section, and / or attempting to convince me why YOUR scene should make it to number one. Once, I’ve tabulated the results, you can expect to see a full-fledged Top Ten Delena Moments Post for Season 3, Part 1, right here on this blog. Sound good?
