Mixtape Mondays – Spidey Jeremy & Spidey Tyler – The Vampire Diaries

Image

The Vampire Diaries’ exec producers may have temporarily forgotten the insane chemistry between Jeremy Gilbert and Tyler Lockwood that exploded early in season two.

However, Jyler fans HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN.

So let’s hop aboard the HoYay train, and find out why Jeremy would make one hell of a werewolf chew toy for Tyler, shall we?

(I’m gonna take artistic license and make some song lyrics HoYaYed in terms of gender so they all make sense)

Picspam and GIFs from Livejournal mistress JylerTVD and inspiration from the Jyler fangirls and fanboys at this forum.

Mixtape Track #1 – Don’t Call Me Baby – Madison Avenue

Lyrics:

You and me we had an opportunity
And we could make it something reaally cool
But you, you think I’m not the kind of boy
I’m here to tell ya baby I know how to rock your world

Don’t think I’m not that strong
I’m the one to take you on
Don’t underestimate me boy
I’ll make you sorry you were born
You don’t know me the way you really should
You’re sure misunderstood

Chorus :
Don’t call me baby
You got to know that baby that will never do
You know I don’t belong to you
It’s time you knew I’m not your baby
I belong to me
So don’t call me baby

Behind my smile is my IQ
I must admit this does not sit with the likes of you
You’re really sweet, mmm, you’re really nice
But didn’t mama ever tell ya not to play with fire

Don’t think that I am that strong
I’m the one to take you on
Don’t underestimate me boy
I’ll make you sorry you were born
You don’t know me the way you really should
You’re sure misunderstood

Chorus :
Don’t call me baby
You got to know that baby that will never do
You know I don’t belong to you
It’s time you knew I’m not your baby
I belong to me
So don’t call me baby

Chorus :
Don’t call me baby
You got to know that baby that will never do
You know I don’t belong to you
It’s time you knew I’m not your baby
I belong to me
So don’t call me baby

Jeremy/Tyler Connection:

Jeremy and Tyler begin the series hating one another, but as Vampire Diaries fans know, hate is really just the beginning of a hate sex love story.

Considering Vicki was supposedly the source of all their initial antagonism, the boys sure focussed a lot of time and energy fighting each other for her rather concentrating on the love aspect of the triangle. Working out sexual frustrations, maybe? 😉

This first song is basically about the singer being frustrated for not being taken seriously for their mind; “don’t call me baby” is their way of demanding that they no longer be treated like just a hot piece of ass. Jeremy similarly makes the mistake that there is no IQ behind Tyler’s sexy smile.

Tyler shoulder porn

There is more to Tyler than shoulder porn. Seriously.

Remember Jeremy expressing derision that Tyler was at the arts stand at the career fair in The Turning Point (S01E10)? J, a talented artist himself, said “art implies culture, and culture implies… not you.” When Tyler stalked off, Jeremy suddenly noticed an artwork by Tyler that showed a depth of talent and might I even say sensitivity he’d never seen before.

So Jyler first bonded over their shared love of art. Need I remind you of another heated sketching scene?

A dog in a pink tutu? Damon's subtle way of saying he is a Jyler shipper too!

 

Mixtape Track #2 – Dual Alchemy – Aghora

Lyrics:

In my sleepless nights I wait inside for you
Longing for your shelter
My life is full of dreams fantasizing you
Showing me reality

Feeling duality I rise and follow thee
Lifting my awareness
Feeling yourself in me I realize the need
To liberate my passions

This bond growing free yourself in me
Feeling layers, cleaving endlessly
Constant pressures enveloping space
Feeling layers cleaving endlessly

My skin is full of you
Our blood a piercing flow
Burning through the boundaries
The alchemy of dreams
A fantasy that’s true
Shattering reality

Feeling duality I rise and follow thee
Lifting my awareness
Feeling yourself in me I realize the need
To liberate my passions

Feeling layers, cleaving endlessly

This bond growing free yourself in me
Feeling layers, cleaving endlessly
Constant pressures enveloping space
Feeling layers cleaving endlessly

Jeremy/Tyler Connection:

Bad moon rising

The activation of Tyler’s inner werewolf in season two is hugely symbolic. The dual nature of man and wolf, painful transformations when wolfing out… if this doesn’t scream bisexuality and coming to terms with a growing new sexuality, I don’t know what does! Jeremy is the first person Tyler confides in about the Lockwood werewolf curse, which remains dormant until a Lockwood carrying the werewolf gene kills someone, whether accidentally or deliberately.

Tyler shares his recent discovery of his wolf/man duality with Jeremy in Kill Or Be Killed (S02E05), allowing him to voice questions and secrets that up until then he’d had to shoulder on his own (his werewolf Uncle Mason was pretty when shirtless but didn’t provide that much guidance and met a messy end on the Salvatore carpet before he could adopt more of a mentor role).

So Tyler’s Dual Alchemy, or potential transfiguration into half-man, half-creature, marks a huge change in his self-identity, a key theme for a lot of characters in season two. Who is to say this won’t include him redefining his sexuality?

Feeling duality I rise and follow thee
Lifting my awareness
Feeling yourself in me I realize the need
To liberate my passions

Hmm, I have a good idea about how Tyler can “liberate” his passions…

Jyler kiss

Mixtape Track #3 – The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang

Lyrics:

Ha-Ha! Well now we call this the act of mating
But there are several other very important differences
Between human beings and animals that you should know about

I’d appreciate your input

Sweat baby sweat baby sex is a Texas drought
Me and you do the kind of stuff that only Prince would sing about
So put your hands down my pants and I’ll bet you’ll feel nuts
Yes I’m Siskel yes I’m Ebert and you’re getting two thumbs up
You’ve had enough of two-hand touch you want it rough you’re out of bounds
I want you smothered want you covered like my Waffle House hashbrowns
Come quicker than FedEx never reach an apex like Coca-Cola stock you are inclined
To make me rise an hour early just like Daylight Savings Time

Do it now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Gettin’ horny now

Love the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket
Like the lost catacombs of Egypt only God knows where we stuck it
Hieroglyphics? Let me be Pacific I wanna be down in your South Seas
But I got this notion that the motion of your ocean means “Small Craft Advisory”
So if I capsize on your thighs high tide B-5 you sunk my battleship
Please turn me on I’m Mister Coffee with an automatic drip
So show me yours I’ll show you mine “Tool Time” you’ll Lovett just like Lyle
And then we’ll do it doggy style so we can both watch “X-Files”

Do it now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Gettin’ horny now

You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Gettin’ horny now 

Jeremy/Tyler Connection:

This song is perfect to describe Jyler for two reasons. First, the title refers to just how much Jyler enjoying getting all up in each other’s Kool Aid (TM Trish!).

Image

Second, Jyler have a primitive connection that can only be described as animal magnetism.

After all, as KJewls from TV Recappers Anonymous explained, Jeremy’s cute attempts at being a BAMF amounts to him being The Vampire Diaries’ answer to Scrappy Doo.

And of course Tyler is now a ticking full moon time bomb after accidentally killing some chick in Masquerade (S02E07) and activating the werewolf curse.

So, naturally, I was more excited than Damon with an O positive juicebox when I remembered this track by the Bloodhound Gang.

Thirsty Damon

You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals
So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel

Surely I’m not the only one who could picture Tyler standing under Jeremy’s window holding a jukebox and serenading J with this line?

(Hey, any other girls think that Tyler would make an awesome guy friend a few months into having his own version of “that time of the month” and finally empathising with what we put up with?)

And then we’ll do it doggy style so we can both watch “X-Files”

I mean, really, there isn’t much I can say to top that line. Let’s just say that Baby Were Tyler and Scrappy Doo = a match made in sweaty mansex heaven!

Mixtape Track #4 – Hanging By A Moment – Lifehouse

Lyrics:

I’m desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I’m closer to where I started
I’m chasing after you
 

I’m falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all i’ve held onto
I’m standing here until you make me move
I’m hanging by a moment here with you

Forgetting all I’m lacking
Completely incomplete
I’ll take your invitation
You take all of me now

I’m falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all i’ve held onto
I’m standing here until you make me move
I’m hanging by a moment here with you

I’m living for the only thing i know
I’m running and not quite sure where to go
And I don’t know what I’m diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

There’s nothing else to lose
Nothing else to find
There’s nothing in the world
That can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

I’m desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I’m closer to where I started
I’m chasing after you

I’m falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I’ve held onto
I’m standing here until you make me move
I’m hanging by a moment here with you

I’m living for the only thing I know
I’m running and not quite sure where to go
I don’t know what i’m diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Just hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment here with you

Jeremy/Tyler Connection:

Don’t just take my word for it. Jyler slash is now Vampire Diaries canon.

Tyler had pinned Jeremy up against a wall in anger (any excuse!), leading to a subsequent intense discussion and rare smile shared between the two in Kill or Be Killed (S0205) . One of the drunk girls they were hanging out with at the time came into the room they had their little sexytime and asked “sorry, were you two having a moment?”

After seeing this GIF you still think the HoYay is in my mind??

Crystal Ball Mixtape Track #5 – I’m A Slave 4 U – Britney Spears

Lyrics:

I know I may be young
But I’ve got feelings, too
And I need to do what I feel like doing
So let me go and just listen

All you people look at me like I’m a little boy
Well, did you ever think it’d be okay for me to step into this world
Always sayin’ little boy don’t step into the club
Well, I’m just tryin’ to find out why ’cause dancin’s what I love

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

I know I may come off quiet, may come off shy
But I feel like talking, feel like dancing when I see this guy
What’s practical is logical, what the hell who cares?
All I know is I’m so happy when you’re dancin’ there

I’m a slave for you
I cannot hold it, I cannot control it
I’m a slave for you
I won’t deny it, I’m not tryin’ to hide it

Baby, don’t you wanna dance up on me
To another time and place
Oh baby, don’t you wanna dance up on me
Leaving behind my name and age

Like that
You like it
Yeah, now watch me

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

I really wanna dance, tonight with you
I really wanna do, what you want me to
I really wanna dance, tonight with you
I really wanna do, what you want me to

Baby, don’t you wanna dance up on me
To another time and place
Oh baby, don’t you wanna dance up on me
Leaving behind my name and age

I’m a slave for you
I cannot hold it, I cannot control it
I’m a slave for you
I will not deny it, I’m not tryin’ to hide it, baby

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

I’m a slave for you
I cannot hold it, I cannot control it
I’m a slave for you
I won’t deny it, I’m not tryin’ to hide it

Like that?

Jeremy/Tyler Connection:

We all know how much Tyler likes taking his conquests to creepy former slave cellars…

Tyler loves chains

Your slave cellar or mine?

Here’s hoping he and Jeremy test the strength of those chains soon! 😉

Image

Mmm! Tortured glances!

As we know, the water is not only hard in Mystic Falls, but Arkansas as well.

Remember the Bill/Sam action?

Pennydreadful thinks it went a little something like this…

Bill: I find myself strangely in the grip of a powerful homoerotic attraction to you, Mr. Merlotte. Might I call on you sometime?
Sam: (with innocent bewilderment) Call on me?
Bill: Yes, might I visit with you at your home…so that we may engage in physical congress?
Sam: (still confused) Physical congress? I’m confused…I didn’t think you vampires had the right to vote.
Bill: I was asking if we might enjoy the sweet forbidden bliss of coitus together…
Sam: Dammit, Bill…stop using all those high falutin Victorian euphemisms. Anyone would think you’ve been cryogenically frozen for the past 150 years. Now what exactly do you want?
Bill: Hot sweaty mansex in your trailer?
Sam: (pauses) Oh hell…sure why not. You can come back to my place but if you tell that I have a “lovely home” you’re going to get a nasty introduction to Mr. Stake…

    Whoever created that first GIF is a GENIUS! It’s just so perfect! Jeremy even SWOONS in it!

    I had to laugh when I saw that Bloodhound Gang track included in your mixtape! Who knew the image of screwing monkeys could be so gosh darn romantic?

    The writers have seemed to at least temporarily abandon Jyler in favor of Jonnie and Taroline respectively. And yet, I can definitely see the show attempting to redevelop their friendship (with benefits?) in future episodes.

    I predict that Jeremy and Tyler will eventually form a bromance a la Damon and Alaric, through their shared interests, mutual understanding, and broody emo origins. They will hang out, and seek advice from one another on their respective relationships. They may even solve a Scooby Mystery or two together. And then . . . slowly but surely . . . 😉

    It kind of reminds me of the song “You Make Me Wanna” by Usher . . .

    http://www.metrolyrics.com/you-make-me-wanna-lyrics-usher.html

    I always liked this song, because it embodies the inner turmoil brought about by a love triangle so perfectly. In fact, I can envision the song being “sung” by other TVD cast members, with respect to their triangles, as well: Elena with respect to Damon (assuming she continues to date Stefan); Caroline with respect to Tyler (assuming she goes back to Matt); Alaric with respect to the next girl who comes along, because Useless Aunt Jenna is so friggin boring, there’s no way his eyes aren’t going to start wandering, sooner or later . . .

    Sigh . . . oh the slings and arrows of unrequited love. I feel for ya, Jyler! 🙂

    Thanks for another AMAZING post, Cherie! You rule! 😉

    • Spidey Sense

      We really do share the same pop culture brain! You Make Me Wanna is my equal favourite Usher tune (U Turn being the other), and I’ve been saving it for a special mixtape… hopefully involving our favourite Spidey and Spidette, Damon and Elena!

      I hope they revisit Tyler, even just to encode scenes with deeply HoYaytastic subtext. But, as long as Jeremy gets SOME action, I will be a VERY happy little fangirl. I’ll admit that it made me squee when I read that the almost kiss with Bonnie at the end of Sacrifice was improvised. So poor Katerina Graham was even prepared for the Jaw Thing hitting her in all its clenching full force!

      The first GIF was from JylerTVD on Livejournal, quite possibly the most amazing Jyler champion of them all 🙂 There is just something about hot men in uniform that never gets old, no matter what the era.

      I ended up saving Soccer Practice in the hopes that we get some truly dirty Jyler action for me to use the song for in a future Jyler mixtape instalment 🙂

  • Jesse91

    Okay, so I’ve never thought about Jyler that much before, but now that you’ve mentioned it? I totally see your point!

    There’s some chemistry there, you can’t deny that. I don’t think the writers wanted this to happen, but well… That’s TV 😉

    I didn’t really know the first 3 songs – but they are quite good! I’m always happy to be introduced to new songs 🙂

    Hanging by a moment is a great song! You might have noticed that I qouted it yesterday for one of my birthday wishes to Ian? I def love this song! 😉

    Big LOL to that TrueBlood connection! All I can say LOL

    I don’t know how you do it, but I’ll def can’t wait to read more on Jyler! You’re doing a great job 🙂

    • Spidey Sense

      Awww, you’re the sweetest! I’m glad your enjoying the blog posts, cos I love getting your comments! 🙂

      I just might have jumped up and down like an excited puppy when I saw that you mentioned Hanging By A Moment on Twitter… just wanted to keep quiet until you had checked out the post so you’d get a surprise!

      I think this whole cast is so damn charismatic that chemistry between characters happens in the most unlikely of places. But when Jeremy gave Tyler the patented Joey Potter crooked smile when he was handling the moonstone? If that wasn’t intentional eye-sexin’ then the director definitely wasn’t watching their dailies closely enough 😉

      Sometimes I’ll put in a song whether I like it or not if it suits the couple. Most of these were just the craziest, slashiest songs I could find!

      Here’s hoping that there are more Jyler scenes soon for me to read HoYay into 🙂 In the meantime I’ll ship Jeremy with practically anyone because of his OhSoHotness 😉

      And I only discovered that True Blood joke passage recently, and it was too good NOT to share!

  • imaginarymen

    The first gif and the “smile” one are MADE OF WIN!!!!!

    Good GOD that Steven R. McQueen is a pretty, pretty boy. Yay for being of Legal Age to Lust!!

  • André

    I definitely get this whole Jyler stuff. Seriously bith characters have enough in common and enough differences to get a relationship started. I don’t think that it would ever happen in the show but to be honest, in real life I would actually be surprised if nothing sexual was going on between two such guys.

    • Spidey Sense

      Hey André! Thanks for your awesome comments! To be honest, I think that all of the actors of this show have such great chemistry together that I could have completely accepted a hook up between Jeremy and Tyler. There are homoerotic undertones aplenty throughout the show when you start looking carefully enough. I think one day I’ll have to do a HoYay post 😉

      It’s a shame that the Tyler and Jeremy dynamic isn’t explored a little bit more. Right before Mason was killed, he asked Jeremy to look after Tyler, and I must admit I have been disappointed that the writers have dropped the ball so severley in this department. I understand that Caroline needed to be Tyler confidant, but there have been virtually NO Jyler scenes of late. I hope that Tyler confronts Jeremy about trying to retrieve the moonstone from him in light of all the revelations about Mystic Falls Tyler will experience in the next episode.

      • André

        We shall see, we shall see. It really would be a shame, considered how readily Tyler opened himself towards Jeremy. Actually I asked myself how deep their antipathy really ran, considered that they started to behave quite civil towards each other even in Season 1 and had already begun to “get close” (the party in the woods, the couch in the school yard, the career day). That reminds me off my school days, alot of the antipathy and “hate” seems actually quite shallow in retrospective. But than again we have to remind ourselves that not much time passes in the series between the episodes, and not even in real live, so who knows. All in all, this show got me hooked (mark I’m nearing 30 so its my “guilty pleasure” and I stopped looking shows like that years ago, :D) because til now you never had many, lets say “flat” characters, there alwys seemed to be some depth to them. Well I am also into mythology, so… Thats why I really hope the show won’t become to predictable. But patience is a virtue as they say.

        • Spidey Sense

          I’m still convinced that the whole Vicki rivalry was just a beard for the two boys to be in close proximity with one another 😉

          I doubt they’ll ever hook up on the show, but, my God, it would be a powerful statement. In the very least, the two actors have too much chemistry not to at least have them interacting in an uneasy alliance or a solid friendship down the track (I really do think that Tyler is going to be pissed at Jeremy when he finds out about the moonstone).

          Tyler is quite sensitive under his alpha male, hypermasculine outward persona. His relationship with Caroline has showed the real Tyler that is normally tucked away, I think. Or, in the very least, a side to him that exists but he normally doesn’t show because of social expectations, his upbringing etc. So, his ability to connect with Jeremy strongly didn’t really surprise me.

          I definitely agree with you that high school angst is so shallow in retrospect. It seems to important at the time to be a particular way, but it is such a fleeting time, and you realise that it doesn’t really matter all that much in the grand scheme of things. But I think that the reason why these shows work so well in high school settings is because the stakes are already high by virtue of the fact that they are teens – emotions are heightened and everything is life or death. Through some supes into the mix, and it all just explodes! Don’t worry about owning your guilty pleasure – heck, I BLOG about this stuff. And in one of my other posts about vampires and souls, you’ll find out that my parental units find my love for vampire shows a little crazy 😉

          I’m very much into mythology too. Every now and then I do a really deep analysis called Supes 101, which is among my favourite type of thing to write.
