I’m listening to “Never Let Me Go” - Florence and the Machines from the TVD soundtrack, in other words, the song from the epic Damon-Elena kiss.
But you know what? You realize that, above this love triangle, this normal girl-vampire boy love story is much more.
The Vampire Diaries is about LOVE. Not just love between a man and a woman, but LOVE. Love between family, love in friendship, love in all the proportions that exist.
It’s that simple. Love.
Each character in TVD strive for love, to find love, to protect it or to replace it.
And that’s why The Vampire Diaries is so special to me.
It’s not another teenage drama vampire love story.
It’s a story that reminds us that love is what we need, all we need to survive this life.
When one says they watch TVD for a living, people laugh, complain - “it’s a chick flick”, “so twilight”.
It’s. not. Twilight.
If one takes the time to watch it closely, one will realize the story of each character and how we connect to those characters, how we breathe their emotions. TVD is so much more complex than Twilight.
TVD is a story with complexities, layers, and themes that one cannot figure out with just one watch. TVD is a show that I find solace in, I find peace in. Maybe because it reminds me that love is something special, it is something we can never lose. No matter what kind of love we strive for in this life, we can never lose that want and search for love.
Cause love is what makes us care, cause emotions is what makes us humans.
It reminds us that everyone is human (even vampires) and that we need to feel to be human, we need to love to be real.
Don’t ever shut that off. Don’t ever not feel.
And whatever happens tonight, whoever Elena is gonna choose, whoever is gonna die today - I will feel each and every bit of what the characters feel cause TVD has grown on me in that such of a way.
It is part of me now, and like it or not, it’s not leaving
