 The story of a man called Damon Salvatore might just be the greatest story ever told. It's fantasy, it's drama, it's heartbreak and terror. It might take you through paths that you'd find unthinkable, paths that would feel so harsh and real to you that you'd stop for a while, suffocated by all the feelings that you'd just watched being stabbed in his back. And you would think to yourself that you've already been through something like that before, but you just haven't been through all of that at once, and you'd wonder how anyone would be able to keep themselves together after everything that he's been through.
It hasn't been 20 years of suffering for him, not thirty of fifty even. It has been more than 150 years. No one knows what that is like, to live in pain for such a prolonged amount of time. Hell, no one knows what it's like to live 150 years, period. But Damon Salvatore knows, he knows a lot about life. He doesn't know all of it, though. He knows the worst part of it. He's a vampire. Some would say that his being this supernatural creature would be the reason why he was condemn to such a life. Some would say that he's been cursed, but Damon Salvatore doesn't believe in curses. Until yesterday he didn't even believe in werewolves.

What happened to him? you must be asking. Well, I think that the wrongs in his life began when he was just a little boy.

I want you to picture what would be like to have all of this happen to you, then I want you to consider if you wouldn't have already lost your sanity if you were in his shoes.

Somewhere around the 1840's, Damon was born. And, a handful of years later, Stefan came into his life, a green eyed baby with angelical features that would mirror his character later on, as Damon watched him become a little man. As foggy as this ancient part of Damon's life is, it is known that Damon was not raised by his mother, he was raised by his father and Stefan's mother, who was a sweet woman and good parent to both boys. But her sweetness didn't change the fact that  she was not his mother and that Stefan had a real family and he didn't. Damon was the black sheep, Stefan was the enchanted prince, the White Knight of Mystic Falls. They were opposites, they were aware of the differences in their personality, the differences between the way their father treated them. Momma Salvatore was long gone before we were taken to the Mystic Falls of the Founding Families' era, we never saw her, barely heard about her, never even knew her name, but at least to this day, this woman has been most probably the only person who managed to only better Damon's life. Daddy Salvatore, however, might have been the trigger, the first pull to the crumbling Domino that his's life has turned into. 

I was born in the early 90's, my take on family relationships is certainly not appropriate for his time, but through my eyes, Giuseppe Salvatore was a horrible man. There are certain aspects of yourself that you have to fight to keep safe, there's not questioning them. Protecting your pride and your honor are as instinctive actions as fighting for survival for most people. It's reasonable, it's a fact. Apparently, honor and pride stood atop his own children. Giuseppe made a terrible discovery one day, he became aware of the existence of these creatures he called demons of the night, that were in fact vampires, and he stood bravely to protect his town and the ones he cared about against these beings. What he didn't know was that he was harboring one of them in his own house, and that her arrival would be the start of the downfall to his family, but, most importantly, her arrival would change Damon's life for all eternity, literally

She presented herself as Katherine Pierce, and came escorted by Emily Bennett, Pearl and Anna. A witch who owed her and two vampires who seemed to be her friends. Her name is, in fact, Katrina Petrova, but at the time no one in Mystic Falls had the slightest idea that at least one of their guests  - the one who resembled a goddess, who exhaled beauty and sensuality - had come from hell. To Stefan, she'd fallen from the sky like an angel would've,  and Damon's heart had fluttered at her sight. He was to one who encouraged Stefan to pursue her "That is a girl who clearly wants to be chased," he'd said to his brother one day, when the lady had come out to play with them. "If you don't do it, I will." He'd added playfully. That day might have been the very last that they shared where everything was okay. The last day of peace. 

When Damon returned from battle, everything changed.

  I'm a carnival lover. It's fun, it's colorful, it's all rainbows and sweets. There's popcorn/cotton candy stands for me to drool over, ferry wheels to see the city from a perspective you don't get to see very often, silly games to play even though you know you're going to lose. What's there not to like? It's like heaven to me. And that's why I'm not on the Vampire Diaries, because if I happened to go to the carnival I just watched unfold on my screen (specially is my name was Carter) I would witness heaven become hell.
Let's start with Elena being the awesome character that she is. There is always a site to her that I don't really like, which is her scenes with Stefan, but her attitude, her choices, she never lets me down. It's interesting how she's coping the bad stuff going on in her life in a similar way that Damon is. It only goes to show that they are more alike then what it appears in the surface. But, although there were a couple of good Damon & Elena scenes this episode (stake on yo face included), they both need their time apart right now. It seems that all that is happening is taking a toll on Elena that we have never seen before. The scene where she says to Stefan that she's fine and goes home i's heartbreaking, you can feel the pain she's going through. Call me a delusional Delena shipper but this girl has been through a lot before and never have we seen her like this. I'm sensing what happened with Damon affected her way more than she would've like it to and that's why she also seemed to be hiding a lot of what she was feeling from Stefan. Another reason would be her realizing that Katherine is getting under Stefan's skin in a way she was not expecting. Everyone was expecting Damon to be that guy, not Stefan. Except I think both brothers now stand aside when it comes to the HBIC in charge. 

Poor Elena, as if that was not enough, Caroline, her friend, is now a vampire. I'm sorry to say this, Elena, but I'm so happy she is! Candice Accola, I applaud you on my knees. Such great acting in the episode (well, all of them but this one... outstanding!), specially the scene where she ravishes Carter (see why I would not want to be him?). She made the episode, period. There was everything from her, confusion, desperation, evil, good, sweet, vengeful... should I go on? Extra points of awesomeness for the lovely lovely ending scene with Matt confessing his love and her managing to control her vamp. How is she going to hide this from the Sheriff though? Shall be interesting to see.

Damon, my dear, you amaze me and irritate me and sadden me every episode, end then in the end you make me love you more than I already do. Head of the council? Oh, the irony! (By the way, why am I liking Carol this season when I hated her guts last year?) Being thrown to the ground by Caroline? You deserved that and you know it. Wanting to stake one of my favorite characters? Why do I still feel like melting when you hug her that way? Having two people wanting to kill in less then a couple of hours? It's just a sign that whatever you're trying to do, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG. *chuckle* I'm not a big fan of Stefan, but even though Stefan's existence causes great pain to Damon, it's not his fault and I'm glad that they still have their bromance going. You see, if Damon were Bonnie, he would blame Stefan's guts for bruise he made when he was playing with paper.

Yes Bonnie, surprisingly, not everything is Damon's fault. Look at yourself in the mirror, then we'll talk. Seriously, could she be more different from book Bonnie?

Next week's Bad Moon Rising looks fantastic. Can't wait for it!

PS: Does the show have like a contract with OneRepublic or what? Their songs are in every episode, seriously.

 I'll tell you something, gardening shops are scary.

We have a big garden here, lots and lots of square feet of grass to cut, so we went to a gardening store a few days ago. Seriously, isn't there a horror movie in a gardening store yet? With all the varieties of tools that could cut you in half, tear your skin open, mutilate you, or even pull your eyeballs out, there's no better setting for a horror movie, I tell you.

I remember reaching for some tool I couldn't recognize which I thought was funny looking. It had a huge wooden stick and then at the end it had some plastic thing with a peculiar shape. I was like "Look at this dad, what the hell is it?" all the while chuckling. But then I look up and I see a blade as big as my torso on the other end of the wooden stick. I gasp and it was like my sight had been blurred until then because I started seeing huge blades wherever I turned (chainsaws included!).

I was scared, I wanted to get the hell out of there.

 Just rewatched the whole episode on my tv. I think I'm going to have dreams with heartbroken Damon Salvatore. Don't know how I'm going to get through a whole week of waiting for the next episode. Guess I should be thankful that school starts on monday. At least it'll keep my head busy until next Thursday.

God, I want to hug Damon.

 Alright so, today is the day that I've been waiting for throughout the whole summer. This past night was hell because I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking about what was going to happen on the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries T instead of relaxing so as to fall asleep and wake up to watch it. I actually woke up at 7 a.m, me, the one who never wakes up before at least 12 a.m. I could've just turned on the computer and watched the episode right there and then, but I resisted the urge and managed to fall asleep for a few hours. Still, woke up again before 12 a.m.  

I watched it then, and OH MY GOD that episode was the best one I watched, ever.  My heart was broken by Katherine and Elena at the same time as Damon's was. Seriously, I love that character so much, I feel his pain, and I cheer when he does something that makes me proud. I actually talk to him through the screen. I used to condemn people who did that, because let's face it, it's so silly that it's not even funny. As much as I scream at the top pf my lungs "DAMON DON'T KISS HER, IT'S NOT ELENA. DON'T DON'T DON'T," (which I totally did, by the way), it ain't changing anything. But I can't help it. Ian Somerhalder, Julie and Kevin do that to people (the rest of the cast do to, though not as much). 

Throughout the episode I was chocked, hurt, sad, happy, ecstatic, proud (of Stefan, surprisingly), mad, and did I mention chocked? 

Now there's the Merlin premiere and True Blood's season finale monday.

Farewell, off to rewatch The Return on tv now.
