So, Chris and I started watching the Vampire Diaries a while back. Go ahead and judge away….you have NO CLUE what you are missing out on. The story line is never boring and Damon’s one liners crack me up!!!
It got me thinking. Have you ever believed in the super natural? Could it be possible that vampires, witches and werewolves exist among us? While I don’t necessarily believe in any of that stuff….it is fun to think about. What if you were a vampire and lived for hundreds of years and never showed signs of aging? It would be pretty cool because you could experience so many different ways of life. Keep starting over somewhere new when you get bored or want to try something else out.
Of course, I would have to be a “good vampire” and not kill for human blood. Blood alone freaks me out. And have you noticed that all male vampires are HOTTT. Stephan and Damon, yum yum yes please! Edward from Twilight…hellloooo! Of course there are downfalls, like having to keep secrets from people and hiding who you truly are. Plus the pesky werewolves always out to destroy you and such. Nature likes to keep things balanced.
We watch a few episodes every night before we go to bed, and I have got to be honest…they consume my dreams sometimes. One morning I remember right before I woke up someone asked me why I liked being a vampire and I said, “Because I stay young forever and never show signs of aging!” Plus how convenient is it for all if the humans in that show to cheat death several times just because they have a crafty witch around. (Like my pun.)
Last night we were watching an episode, and it really got me thinking…what if I were in this situation. Not to give too much information away, as I hate spoilers, but if you were given the choice to do something to help someone that you love, even if it might be considered wrong, in order to save their life…would you do it? Would it be harder to live with the consequences of what you did to save them or would it be harder to live with yourself knowing you could have done something to save them and you didn’t?
The show has so many twists and turns in it. So many characters get killed off and come back. I just love it! It does have me thinking quite often about what I would do in certain situations. They always call certain losses “collateral damage.” Not quite sure how I feel about that.
Also, vampires have the ability to turn off their emotions. Sometimes I wish I could do that!
