Tara and I are still watching Lost and Vampire Diaries. I don’t know what Tara’s thoughts are on Lost (although I can tell you that show ruined my life because I’ll never get over the fact that it ended), but as for Vampire Diaries I am always pleasantly surprised with the direction of its plot. It never does the predictable thing, and I like that. I also love Caroline. I also love all the minor characters, and then they die. So here’s how that’s going:
Elodie: I just had this image of Katherine knocking back liquor at a bar someplace while Elena is the weathered bartender listening to her story.
Tara: Shannon’s using Vincent to find Walt
Tara: If someone tried to use one of my dogs to find me it would not work at all.
Tara: DAMN BOONE YOU ARE LOOKING WAY TOO ATTRACTIVE FOR A FUNERAL
Tara: And “death sucks,” that was your opening line?
Elodie: He thought about it a lot on the way over.
Tara: Of course Locke is the baby whisperer
Elodie: I love this Slater guy, which means he’s probably going to die
Elodie: If you wanted to fit in somewhere and live a normal life why the hell would you move to Mystic Falls
Tara: OH MY GOD, IS SHE DEAD?
Tara: THAT’S SO NOT FAIR
Elodie: I know. Thank God Slater’s still alive.
Elodie: NO, GODDAMMIT!
Tara: I was just thinking “wait for it…”
Elodie: I fell in love with another minor character and it cost me.
Elodie: This was a sad night all around.
Tara: That it was.
Elodie: Earlier I told my mom you were going to watch the episode where [character] dies, and she was like, “You’re only that far?” So she too believes we’re not watching TV fast enough.
Tara: I want to finish Lost by the end of the summer, that’s my goal.
Elodie: And I want to catch up with Vampire Diaries and Game of Thrones.
Elodie: How can people say we’re not ambitious
For anyone who randomly stumbled onto this blog by accident and is confused by what looks like a really loud, inappropriate, and confusing dialogue between two people: my friend Tara and I recently embarked on a TV Show Challenge Adventure Experience Thing. We both chose a TV show and are forcing the other person to watch it. We watch them simultaneously and message each other our thoughts, usually in fragmented, broken speech like two people who are only grappling with the English language. I chose Lost. She chose The Vampire Diaries. These are our stories. (DUN DUN.)
Elodie: Colonial Stefan and Damon. *swoon*
Elodie: OH MY GOD
Tara: OH MY GOD!
Tara: WHY IS NOBODY STOPPING JIN FROM BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF THAT GUY
Elodie: IS DAMON SETTING THEM ON FIRE
Tara: SO MANY THINGS ARE HAPPENING
Elodie: “Be careful who you invite into the house.”
Elodie: This is just a point of observation but I don’t think I’ve ever actually invited someone into my house, ever. I’ve never been like, “Yeah, come on in,” even casually, I just open the door and assume they know what to do.
Elodie: If a vampire was trying to con his way into my house it would probably get really awkward really fast.
Tara: Locke is such a troll
Elodie: JEREMY SHE’S LICKING BLOOD OFF YOUR FACE. I’m not an expert or anything but I feel like that’s a red flag.
Tara: Good guy Jack tells everyone you have the flu when really you’re going through heroin withdrawals.
Tara: Oh my GOd in the next episode Jack and Sayid torture Sawyer?!?
Elodie: THERE IT IS
Elodie: That’s the kind of thing that can really throw a wrench in an OTP
Elodie: And open up the door to a really kinky three-ways
Elodie: Singular, not multiple
Elodie: Although I suppose we could have an…
Elodie: ISLAND ORGY
Tara: I VOTE FOR THAT.
When I’m tired, out of ideas, or just plain lazy, I copy and paste my conversations with Tara into WordPress and call it a post.
Tara: Here’s a link to Joey Richter on Glee
Elodie: THANKS. I’m class right now but I’m going to use the promise of that spectacle to get me through it.
Elodie: I’m having one of those moments where I’m like “holy shit I really need to start paying attention” and then I continue not paying attention.
Elodie: …I’m IN class
Elodie: Not “I’m class”
Elodie: Actually I am class
Elodie: I personify what it means to be classy
Elodie: Oh my God I need to pay attention.
And the best of our recent Vampire Diaries/Lost TV Challenge Adventure Thing (and I say “best of” because a lot of the time it’s just us exchanging fragments like “HOLY SHIT” and “WHAT WAS THAT” and “DID HE DIE”):
Tara: I’d hate to be elected the unofficial leader of the island
Tara: I’d probably kill everyone
Elodie: Dammit Elena, you’re bleeding all over the food
Elodie: If I found somebody’s diary I would read it so hard. But that’s why I’m not on a TV show. I’d be a really unlikeable protagonist.
Tara: I wish I could catch fish with my bare hands. I don’t know what I would do with that talent, but I want it.
Elodie: He’s trying to force her to admit he’s a vampire.
Elodie: “SAY IT. OUT LOUD.”
Elodie: …I am so sorry.
