Okay, okay, I get the Damon thing now. I know I said that I thought Stefan was hotter and I couldn’t understand the obsession so many women had with Damon. But I GET it now. I’m not sure where the turning point was. I can’t put my finger on the exact moment when I suddenly realized Damon was hot. Maybe it happened slowly as I began to see some real humanity come through. He is obviously in love with Elena. I think maybe the moment that it really hit me was when he kissed Katherine, thinking it was Elena. That was such an intense moment that I had butterflies. When I realized that I was actually disappointed that it WASN’T Elena, then I knew I was getting the Damon thing. I do still really like Stefan. I think the two brothers complement each other…dark and light. (On a side note, it helps me a lot to think of these characters as older adults instead of high school kids.)
I know many of you out there want to say “I told you so”. So go ahead. I understand now. LOL

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
