The Vampire Diaries: I watch for the plot
I know there are at least a few people on my flist who watch The Vampire Diaries. Guys, did your eyes pop out of your head like mine did in that scene last night where Damon was getting ready for the fundraiser?!

Could those pants BE any lower?






I never used to think Ian Somerhalder was particularly attractive, but in this role he brings the sexy like nobody's business. The funny part is that sometimes it's even more apparent in his scenes with Stefan than his ones with Elena. ;)



Yeah, I watch for the plot, but the pretty sure doesn't hurt. ;)

Hee I know what you mean, he never did much for me at all on SV, and I was kind of baffled as to why people were drooling so much. I find him quite odd-looking for some reason, maybe it was the eyebrows...

But now *drools*

I've always liked his eyes, but he's no Tom Welling, y'know? ;) He really brings Damon to life in an amazing way, though, and I think he's beyond hot in the role.

I just think it's a shame there's not a bigger fanbase for Stefan and Damon! They're the couple I find myself most interested in, and while there's some fic, it's not really the sort of active fandom I was hoping for :/

I don't know if it's because it's a teen show so people are naturally more drawn to the het ships when it comes to creative things like fic and video's, but then SV was the same when it first started, and there were still plenty of people picking up on the interesting Clex dynamics and what fandom could do with them *pouts*

Well, I would say it's because they're brothers, but I guess there are plenty of people in the Supernatural fandom who don't see that as an obstacle.

I watched the first episode half hoping it would be bad because it took Smallville's time slot, and was pretty much instantly hooked. :) Now it's one of the few shows I absolutely have to watch live.

That's the shot I wish we were getting of Tom in Escape. Just replace those pants with a very low-slung towel. ;)

They showed that ep at the Paley and the room lost its collective mind when that scene came on. I love the little things about it like he and Stefan but also how he acknowledges that Stefan's thinner than he is and kept share his jacket.

I love that last pic :)

I can only imagine the reaction at the Paley, where so many in the crowd were devoted fans! I hope Ian enjoyed it. :) I love all the little touches he brings to his scenes, you can tell how much care he puts into his performance. And yet it doesn't look studied at all.

I thought that was brilliant when they explained Paul's physique within the context of the show! Boy has an incredible body, but I still think he needs a sandwich. :)

I love how Damon always climbs up into Stefan's personal space, and Stefan just refuses to flinch. It's all heat and defiance and this oh-so-intimate battle of wills. In those moments, Elena is completely irrelevant, and the boys and their endless history are everything. Guh.

Paul really is so much thinner. Awesome body, just too thin. Very lean and hungry looking. I always want him to eat something.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 30th, 2010 10:33 am (UTC) (Link)
I know! I guess the real question is whether it's the ultimate in method acting, a lifestyle choice, or is he just too busy to eat? ;)

His pants couldn't be any lower on network tv, that's for sure!

I think he's matured and is more masculine to balance out his pretty-boyness. He's a lot sexier.

That scene made me wonder what exactly kept his pants from falling off altogether! Those hip bones were awfully distracting. I had to rewind a couple of times. To catch the dialogue. Yeah, that's the ticket. ;)

You make a good point about Ian. He appealed to me more in LOST than in Smallville, and now I'm captivated. But it definitely has everything to do with Damon for me. I love the character Ian has created.

This is just one of those rare shows in which plot and pretty come together to give us an amazing show. Yay, TVD!

(I don't know what's happening to me, but I'm starting to vastly prefer Stefan over Damon. I think I just like good guys!)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 30th, 2010 10:49 am (UTC) (Link)
TVD really does have it all, at least so far!

I'm liking Stefan much better these days, especially because Damon is being particularly awful, but I'm not ready to cross over just yet. :)

Ian used to be pretty but the last couple of years he looks really sexy. I loved his scene with Elena where she helped him button his shirt. His character brings the sexy a lot, too. When Elena walked in the room and said "Stefan.." Damon replied "Better...Me" *hee* He is just too cocky!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 30th, 2010 04:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
He's hot and he knows it! :) His arrogance is part of his charm. Ian has given us a bad boy I can't seem to resist. :)

No kidding! When I first saw this scene, I instantly thought of Paul Walker in this pic, that I got from Ocean HERE. Remember? :)
