VAMPIRES COME ON STRONG IN THE VAMPIRE DIARIES



THE VAMPIRES


THE VAMPIRE DIARIES . . . . A SWIMMING PARTY AND A PUZZLE THIS WEEK . . .

I was totally freaked out this week watching The Vampire Diaries when Elena walked over to an older type rope swing during a swimming party which she had initiated, and swung out and did a flip into the water and jumped. She is always a surprisingly complex person and I did not see this coming.
Meanwhile, Damon and Bonnie are stuck on the other side of life, which is growing more and more curious to them as well as the audience for this season’s The Vampire Diaries television show. It would seem that things stay much the same, although they are in an empty town, Mystic Falls, and very much alone together, and judging by the friction between them, they are both very much anxious to escape all of this forced confinement. They become disturbed though, when they find signs of someone else being there!
 They were right to not trust any of this, since almost immediately when Damon discovered a man who has hidden from them for some time, now violently attacks Damon in a set up for a kill, with liquor bottles laced with a toxic poison which he manages to cover Damon with.
Bonnie, frustrated and afraid, finds her magic returning just in time, but the new stranger is a complex person in his own right. They don’t know whether or not to trust his complicated story meant to gain their trust which he had brutally lost.
Meanwhile Elena in efforts to overcome a constant state of total grief over the loss of Damon has asked a powerful friend to help her forget all of her memories of loving Damon. This could be working, since she has the swimming party and seems to be enjoying it as she finds interest in a man, Liam, and is actually drawn into a brief kiss with the man she has invited to be a possible future love interest for her friend, Caroline.
 But Caroline’s grief for Stefan is severe and could be helped or hindered when Stefan arrives on the scene. He is caught up with revenge and wants Enzo to pay for the murder of Stefan’s present love interest. Things take a violent turn then, and one is suddenly aware that these are Vampires; they have the instinct and the power they have earned the hard way, by walking on the wild side of the Vampire life.
So suddenly, it is serious and deadly, intriguing and begins to weave its dark and mysterious way into the shadows of this world.
To me this week’s show could be described with one word, “Passion.” It is an incredible thing to see these characters come alive in this way, and it does show their passion, longing to be normal, dedicated to their friends, wanting to “live” life to the fullest, and they are thoroughly dedicated to this purpose in this show.

I LOVED THE SERIES OPENER OF THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

WATCHED THE VAMPIRE DIARIES . . . . HERE IS WHAT I THOUGHT . . .

Was that Damon making pancakes with “smiley faces” on it for Bonnie in the Season Opener? It turns out; it is basically all he can cook. But the next week showed off some of his brother Stefan’s chef skills and there were many other eye opening moments of surprise when I anxiously turned in to the first shows of the season of The Vampire Diaries.
 On the second week of the new season things began to get rather deep and very scary as a descendant of the Mystic Falls Founding Fathers shows a violent side which was very  déjà vu of earlier woes these people brought to the Vampires of this small fictional town in Virginia.
The Vampires are separated actually, with Damon and Bonnie lost in a place beyond their own death and the people who love them and would do anything to get them back are caught between trying to go on with some kind of life, and doing everything in their power to bring the two back.
This world the two are stuck in has layers of mystery which they are instantly caught up in. Meanwhile, Elena goes through the most turmoil it would seem in ways and finally in desperation enlists the help of a former teacher, Alaric, in hopes of banishing the tie of memories which holds her to Damon forever. To do this, Alaric helps her seek back to poignant moments in the relationship of Damon and Elena, and she does this with rare and beautiful glimpses of the past dating back to her own high school days.
Meanwhile life is not the same in Mystic Falls; in fact the vampires are kept out by a witches spell. Caroline has dropped out of college and Elena announced her plans to become a doctor. But first things first, with Damon and Bonnie on everybody’s mind, Caroline and Enzo decide to go and seek Stefan only to find him with a new girl friend, a new home, a new job (as a mechanic), and yet, they all are driven to find the whereabouts of Damon and Bonnie. In his own violent and unique way, Enzo tries to reinforce his desire to make Stefan miserable if he doesn’t try to find his brother.
I enjoyed the first two episodes of this season’s The Vampire Diaries because it captured some of the familiar threads of the past shows and promised a new slant of intrigue and adventure and even the Vampire power and magic which the cast of The Vampire Diaries can weave into quite an interesting tale.

OCTOBER AGAIN, AND A CHILL IN THE AIR

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FOB3WEQ






Published last October and still a haunting tale . . .

“Elena, do you want first dibs?
Damon held back slightly, but his eyes sparkled with enjoyment and his mouth broke into a wide smile with just a hint of the sharp teeth which prepared him for what was to come

Countdown The Vampire Diaries . . . October 2

I AM COUNTING THE DAYS.... SO THOUGHT I WOULD DO THIS ON AN INSIDE PAGE ON THIS BLOG...

It is now (drum roll please) HOURS UNTIL OCTOBER 2 WHEN THE NEW SEASON BEGINS!

IN November of the year 2013, which seems like a very long time to me today, I published my very first Kindle World book of The Vampire Diaries.

I am still as excited as back then, if not more so.

I guess I woke up one morning and thought, could I be what is called "A Fan." I found this was so, so I just made myself a cup of coffee and dealt with it, and now live with it.

So eventually, for me as a writer, this started my own road of self-discovery and challenge and I wrote a book and was so thrilled it was published, and is today.
Since then I have written several books, some on the themes that other fans like me thought they would like to see the actors of that marvelous show act out. One by one, I wrote about these and the books are available today.

These books are all in the Teen and Young Adult Division of Kindle World and I am so glad that this situation came into my life.

The Vampire Diaries continues to be a television show which has many sides, very awesome to be able to do that.

So I decided to add this countdown to my posting. I want to see what happened next. This is what great writing is about and this is what great television entertainment is about.

Sincerely,

Romance Novelist Anna Patterson

I HAVE A NEW PAPER OUT!





Dear Readers:

I have a new paper out, barely out, I would have to say.

It is on my own favorite subject: The Last Word.

It is so hard to get in the Last Word on some subjects, isn't it. I find this so true on subjects I would really have a word or two to say. So I started this venture.

I is a work in progress definitely.

Hope you check it out. It is another twice daily, something I favor myself.

Still a Newspaper Woman.....
