An Open Letter Of Apology to Matt & Matt/Caroline Lovers

Things are turbulent at the moment when it comes to the Tyler/Caroline/Matt triangle and character debates.

Tyler and Caroline are fresh from testing out the theory of whether it is possible for vampirism and werewolfism to be sexually transmitted.

Shipper wars for Matt/Caroline versus Tyler/Caroline have long erupted across various battlefronts around the internet, but in the wake of this monumental moment in Vampire Diaries verse, Matt and Matt/Caroline love has shown itself in ways that I can no longer ignore.

Panic In The Streets! Unicorn Sex! – Got Forwood – Tyler/Caroline Recap – The Birthday – Vampire Diaries

Source

I believe the term we’re searching for is OMG.

Remember how I said in an earlier recap that on the day Tyler and Caroline have sex, my blog will be plastered with so many unicorn pictures you will think that rainbow has exploded on it?

Vampire Barbie and Teen Wolf may not be able to have baby Klauses (as far as we know), but they sure have fun trying in The Birthday.

From thrashing about like eels to sunlit days/moonlit nights – Speculation about Tyler/Caroline Sex vs Matt/Caroline Sex

 

Gen tweeted the first image at me and exclaimed “Trevino!Ass”. I was in awe of her ability to notice that, what with the rampant Tyler torso porn. As should we all be.

The Vampire Diaries season three extended promo gives us a far more explicit look at the Tyler/Caroline sex that will be going down (no, not going down in that way, you dirty, dirty Trevino mistresses to Gen’s husband!) in the first episode back after hiatus, Birthday.

It’s no accident that, in a promo drenched, no dripping with sex and blood, we have Caroline and Tyler action amped up to the max, whereas Matt/Caroline’s ill-fated attempt at sexytimes in season one was glaringly dispassionate/bloodless in tone.

Fellow Forwood unicorn lovers, we may not have gotten a promo poster of Caroline holding a banana (yes, I’m in a smutty mood at the moment), the one piece of fruit I think was grossly overlooked by CW’s marketing department.

But never fear, I am going to dissect every microsecond of TC sexy goodness we have gotten so far, and speculate the ways in which I think TC sex will differ dramatically from MC sex, in keeping with the differences in their relationships.

Disclaimer: I like Matt well enough when he is not around Caroline, but I think 12_12_12’s latest post on Matt/Caroline outlines why this relationship will forever be toxic in my eyes, and why I have side-eyeing him quite severely of late. Vampire Barbie and Teen Wolf come first for me, and their treatment by other characters colours my perceptions of those characters.

Now, with that outta the way, let’s get to the good stuff!

Spoilers for season three will be referenced, so read at your own risk!

Original Sins, Originals Sinning & Deadly Sins – My Take On The Vampire Diaries Season Three Extended Promo

XX

Promo screen grabs all from www.vampirediaries.net

Just when we were arming ourselves with pitchforks to storm the CW offices and demand an extended Vampire Diaries Season Three extended promo, STAT, they delivered in style.

Let’s indulge in the debauchery, campiness and decadence! This post is only spoilery if you consider promos to be spoilery.

Vampire Diaries Season Three – Liveblogging/Twitter Competition for Tyler/Caroline fans

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.

New and unexpected challenges & emotional confrontations. Also, starch – Got Forwood Spoiler Whore – Tyler/Caroline Speculation – Vampire Diaries Season Three

So, I stumbled across a Matt lovers Vampire Diaries haven recently and… let’s just say that I’ve decided that I need to severely limit my starch and carbs intake.

Matt Dovovan AKA Mr Mashed Potatoes (TM Price), the greatest unintended ambassador of the Atkins diet ever.

After my brief time hanging around these slightly disturbing quarters of one of the five food groups (hey, I had to see it to believe it!), you have no idea how much I was looking forward to getting back to Forwood-y fuzzy goodness.

My Top Twenty Most Loved/Hated Characters & Favourite Pieces of Eye Candy of All Time. What are yours?

There’s an internet meme going around at the moment where you’re asked to select your top twenty favourite characters of all time, and then ask people to spot patterns in your choice.

I’ve decided to take this a little further and post my top twenty beloved characters, my top twenty most loathed characters and top twenty favourite pieces of eye candy of all time that have graced/disgraced my TV screen. I’ve also briefly listed some common denominators that I can see between the characters, though would am highly curious if you can see I am missing any patterns in my love/hate! I mean, aren’t we always partially blind when it comes to the people we are attracted to?

Also, be sure to let me know what your top twenty lists, and I promise to give insights into what this reveals about your particular kinks, fetishes and dislikes 😉

Tyler = Jess? Plus, some season three tips for TVD writers when it comes to Tyler/Caroline

 

 =

Source

 

?

Jess Mariano had me at “huh” and Tyler Lockwood had me at “we people”.

These tiny snarky moments, delivered with perfect comic timing by Milo Ventimiglia and Michael Trevino, first hooked me on these guys, who quickly became my soul mates for two of my favourite TV girls of all time, Rory Gilmore and Caroline Forbes.

Source

These guys represent messiness and the unknown for our girls, control freak overachievers who deny that their true equal and match is right in front of them, because they’re too busy trying to plan out their lives perfectly, and make their love lifes with Good Boy Woobies Dean Forester and Matt Donovan fit into the perfect ideal relationshipI think they could never have with them (click here for my rant about this trope that I sourced back to the days of Dawson Forehead Leery).

Jess and Tyler are TV characters who make me fangirl like no others (aside from Logan Echolls in seasons one and to a slightly lesser extent season two of Veronica Mars, and Damon Salvatore because Ian Somerhalder there are no words!).

That might seem strange, since these characters aren’t typically appealing. They are Bad Boys but their assholery is in no way charming, in fact they are intriguing to me IN SPITE OF many of their bad traits and less than sympathetic first impressions on screen (it also doesn’t hurt that I dig dark hair more than fair/light brown hair in RL – hey, I am honest about my superficial prejudices! – I don’t mean to but I definitely have a dark hair kink. Jensen Ackles is an exception to this rule).

Them getting their just desserts for being jerks, like Jess getting attacked by a swan, amuses me to no end despite my ❤

They’re called on their flaws regularly by the writers (labelled as tools, jerks, and deservedly so), INCLUDING by the girls they love. Objectively, I completely understand how members of fandom can violently hate these boys. I also know my opinion that Matt and Dean are controlling, passive-aggressive and beneath my beloved girls (though I LOVE Jared Padalecki and it has always pained me that I hate this character of his so) is a divisive one in Vampire Diaries and Gilmore Girls fandoms. Though Dean has more sympathy from me than Matt, for sure 😉

Caring about Tyler/Jess deeply is not the same thing as me justifying their errors in judgment, or being unaware of their deep flaws. But even at their worst, something brings me back to them, and the more I think about the Caroline/Tyler and Rory/Jess ships, especially in comparison to Matt/Caroline and Rory/Dean, the more I find that they have common denominators that explain why they both just plain work for me so much.

Source

It is interesting that Tyler and Jess are incredibly polarising characters, inciting both passionate love but also immense disdain. The funny thing is, this gamut of emotions makes perfect sense to me, and is part of their attraction for me.

I’m planning to write a massive Tyler = Jess? meta partway into Vampire Diaries season three, analysing how Tyler/Caroline are playing out as a couple as compared with Rory/Jess, since this is the make or break season for both couples after a year of incredible build up.

In the meantime, I just knew I needed to fangirl with fellow Jess/Tyler, and Tyler/Caroline and Jess/Rory lovers, particularly those gnawing their fingernails off in anticipation of Tyler crossing the line from friends into something more.

This means that spoilers ahoy below! I have hopes, fears and fannishly obsessed tips for the Vampire Diaries writers on how I hope they handle TC, which could make up for the scarring experience of s3 Gilmore Girls, something that almost turned me off shipping for good after the shredder Rory/Jess were put through.

Don’t worry if you want to stay unspoiled. Like I said, I’ll be revisiting this meta after we are through a good portion of season three Vampire Diaries, to see which of my hopes/fears come to pass.

Got Forwood Rewind – Tyler/Caroline Recap – Bad Moon Rising – The Vampire Diaries

Source

If you’re a Tyler/Caro fanatic like me, there’s no doubt that your head is spinning like that chick from The Exorcist at all of the Forwood spoilers that have been making their way from The Vampire Diaries camp of late. Not to mention the fact that we have been seeing hints of Jeremy in Tyler/Caro scenes! Yippee!

Source

I need 15 Sept in my life right now, but I figured the next best thing is kick-starting another batch of Got Forwood rewinds!

It’s so much fun going back and recapping earlier episodes with the benefit of hindsight. There is A LOT of foreshadowing in Bad Moon Rising – for future T/C interactions but also Ripper!Stefan and Caroline’s potential to be his new Lexi now that he is on the dark path again. A werewolf even pins Caroline to the ground and drools all over her, and even though it isn’t Tyler, it IS a Lockwood!

Season Three Vampire Diaries Wishlist

Source

I’m making a list, and checking it twice. It’s Christmas in July time, which means you get to put pen to paper and ask for your little heart’s desire.

 I’ll ignore the fact that Santa didn’t rappel down my chimney and give me Tyler Lockwood, Damon Salvatore or Music Sex God for Christmas in 2010 as I so nicely asked. Bastard! (Let’s ignore the fact that my house doesn’t even HAVE a chimney ;))

Nope, this time I’ll just keep the faith in a little tinseltown magic, and am making a different wishlist this time… one for season three of The Vampire Diaries AKA The Year of Delena and Forwood.

Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, consider yourself the new Santa for this fangirl.

Warning: Some of these wishes show the extent of my fangirlie near-stalkerdom. Proceed with caution if you’re just a casual fan of the show.
