I used to cry a lot more easily than I do now. I’ve toughened up through the years. But there are still some TV and movie moments that make me tear up, and some that actually make me weep. Here are a few of my moments. There are more, but for the sake of brevity, I’ll limit them. And for those of you that haven’t watched these yet, there may be some spoilers.
1. BuffY the Vampire Slayer: The one that absolutely made me bawl was when Oz left Willow. Oz was one of my favorite characters and I didn’t want him to go. Willow was also a favorite of mine, and I couldn’t stand watching her heart break.
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer: At the very end when Spike sacrificed himself to “save the world”. Buffy finally says “I love you”. Then Spike says “No, you don’t. But thanks for saying it.”
3. The Vampire Diaries: When Damon tells Elena for the first time that he loves her. He says, “I don’t deserve you. But my brother does.” And he says, “God, I wish you didn’t have to forget this. But you do.” And this big tear falls out of his eye. Then he makes her forget the whole thing.
4. Moonlight: When Beth tells Mick they can’t live in each other’s world and that she “can’t do this anymore”. He walks out and goes down the hall and stops and puts his forehead against the wall like he’s going to cry. She puts her head on her arm against the wall of her apartment and starts sobbing. I thought it was going to end that way. That one actually has a happy ending, but I won’t say how in case someone wants to watch it and hasn’t yet.
These are just a few of mine. What are some of yours? I would love to hear from you!

I’m not going to say too much about the constant casual sex among teenagers in The Vampire Diaries, because Kait Nolan and Susan Bischoff covered that awhile back. Let’s just say I agree with them.
One of the things I find lacking in The Vampire Diaries is the wonderful snarky lines from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I know these are two totally different shows, but I miss the humor. I can’t find anything really funny in TVD.
Okay, here’s the biggest thing I don’t understand about the obsession with TVD…Damon. I’m almost finished with Season One, and I STILL don’t like this vampire. He’s a real jerk. In the last few episodes, he has done some surprisingly humane things (not many), but then he turns around and snaps the neck of an innocent person. But women are OBSESSED with this guy. Personally, I think Stefan is better looking and much sexier. Damon isn’t quite as masculine as Stefan. But fans of the show keep telling me to wait and see how I feel about Damon later. So I’m going to give him a chance. When I started watching the Buffy DVD’s, I thought it would be Angel forever. But my friend told me that she would end up with Spike later. I thought that was the craziest thing I ever heard. How could that awful vampire, Spike, ever hold a candle to the sexy, brooding Angel? But guess how I felt about the whole thing later? It was definitely Spike all the way. And I’m seeing some parallels here. Stefan and Angel are both all broody and full of angst about their pasts. Damon and Spike accept themselves as vampires and don’t feel the guilt. There’s definitely a pattern here. So right now, I’m on Team Stefan. But I’m keeping myself open to the possibility that at some point, my focus will be on Damon…like most of the female population. LOL
