The Vampire Diaries

Our Endgame Predictions for the Final Episode of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries

in Fiction by

After eight years and countless characters brought back from the dead, The Vampire Diaries (TVD) is officially coming to an end. The last episode of the iconic teen show (based on the book series by L.J. Smith) airs Friday, March 10, on The CW, and honestly, we’re VERY broken up about it. There have been plenty of times over the last few years where we’ve shouted at the screen and begged the show to just wrap up already. But now that it’s finally here, there’s something very bittersweet about saying goodbye to the vampire show that has been a staple in our weekly watching for almost a decade. We can still remember the excitement of watching the first few episodes of the…

Battle ‘Ships Never-Lose-Hope Edition: Delena vs. Klaroline!

in Fiction by

Most of the time, I like to root for couples that I know stand a chance at Happily Ever After. Sometimes, I’m bitterly disappointed (don’t even get me started on How I Met Your Mother’s Barney & Robin), but I can usually spot a life-long love a mile away. It’s why I stuck around for the Blair & Chuck drama on Gossip Girl. It’s why I knew that Veronica & Logan would eventually make it work on Veronica Mars – even if it took 10 years and a Kickstarter movie. I’m just a true fan of true love. So when my favorite couples get torn apart by outside circumstances, I have a hard time adjusting. Especially when it’s out of…

Battle ‘Ships: Will They or Won’t They Edition!

in Fiction by

Usually on Battle ‘Ships, we like to pit couples from the same show against each other. But this time we’re switching things up and focusing on a theme rather than a love triangle. Welcome to Battle ‘Ships: Will They/Won’t They edition. Any TV junkie is well aware of the Will They Or Won’t They (WTOWT) couple. It’s one of the most familiar tropes out there –- so familiar, in fact, that it’s hard to name a TV show without a WTOWT couple lurking somewhere in every episode. Famous ones from history include Rachel and Ross from Friends, Luke and Lorelei from Gilmore Girls, Jim and Pam from The Office, Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl, etc. I could go on and on,…

One day in the BookTrib offices, three of us almost came to blows over The 100’s “Bellarke” and “Clexa” relationships as we fought for who Clarke should ultimately end up with (Bellamy for the win with two against one!). That’s when we realized how passionate ‘shippers can be — including us. Which is why we’re presenting our own “Battle ‘Ships,” our latest column that pits some of the biggest television ‘ships against one another. We’ll weigh in our favorites and give you a chance to vote for yours. Not sure what a ‘ship is? Don’t worry: we’ve got you covered.

Failed it/Nailed it: The Vampire Diaries Edition

in Fiction by

In 2009, everyone was talking vampires. The Twilight series was crowding bookshelves everywhere, with the second movie coming out in November. True Blood had aired the year before, an instant hit for HBO. Blood suckers — especially cute ones — were everywhere. In the midst of all of this fervor, The CW created the teen vampire drama, The Vampire Diaries, and fans immediately fell in love. Based on a series written in the ‘90s by L.J. Smith, the books tell the story of Elena Gilbert, the golden girl of Mystic Falls high school. She falls hard for Stefan Salvatore, while he keeps a very big secret from her: he’s a vampire. In turn, his brother, Damon (also of the vampire persuasion), falls hard for her because…
