Vampire Diaries is one of those shows that just makes you scream at the TV, or bounce in your seat, or some other involuntary motion – it’s impossible to sit still with all of the awesomeness that explodes across your screen.
Many of us take to Twitter, or text other fellow addicts via mobile phone, to squee and ask “have thine eyes seen what mine have?”
On special occasions, like the season three premiere, Julie from www.tvrecappersanonymous.wordpress.com, Amy from www.imaginarymen.wordpress.com and I do a little something I like to call liveblogging (well, when technology doesn’t epically fail on me).
Given that this is The Year of Forwood and Delena, and the Tyler/Caroline squeeage that has resulted from .0001 seconds of promo footage, I thought it would be fun to have a little competition for anyone who wants to get involved.
I’ll give a Forwood Unicorn Survival Kit to whoever writes the funniest or most creative Tyler/Caroline-related comment either posted in our liveblog (kind of like a running Facebook comment thread that anyone can comment in) or tweeted at my Twitter account (now @_spideysense because people didn’t realise @cheriebee27 was also me here on this blog).
This might take the form of a ridiculously funny response to an epic Tyler/Caroline moment. It might be you casting your vote for the season three premiere’s Milo moment. (A new addition to my recapper’s glossary, whereby you vote for the hottest Tyler moment of the week. It’s in honour of Milo Ventimiglia, who is insanely hot and played one of my favourite TV characters of all time, Jess Mariano, who is kind of a prototype for antihero Tyler).
Maybe you will think of a particularly clever way of showing immense disdain for Matt. You might come up with a creative way of using hashtags on Twitter.
Just know that I have a particular weakness for Tyler in black skinny jeans, and should they make their triumphant return in this episode, this is definitely something to comment on ;)
The Survival Kit will contain a Forwood Unicorn shirt courtesy of Julie and Amy’s awesome Cafepress website (I’ll PM the winner asking for their preferred size)…
… among other things like a tin of Aussie delicacy Milo (chocolately goodness with which I also associate my two favourite boys Tyler and Jess). There might even be handfuls of confetti and glitter thrown in for good measure.
So, while you are kicking back watching the season premiere of TVD, if you feel the need to fangirl like crazy, don’t hold back. Because nothing will shock me, given that when my own Forwood Unicorn shirt arrives from the US, I plan to wear it to the gym as the closest thing to getting all sweaty with Tyler. Hee. I HAVE NO REGRETS! ;)
Stay tuned for news about the liveblog!
