This thread is a place to say goodbye to the show we've loved. This is mine: http://vampirediaries.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Alaric_Saltzman/Rest_in_Peace,_The_Vampire_Diaries
So, The Vampire Diaries is coming to an end. Even thought the show isn't as good as it used to be, I've loved it from the very first moment. I've loved t from the very first sentence ("For over a century, I have lived in secret; hiding in the shadows, alone in the world.") I was immediately hooked. I've discovered the show back in February 2010 (more than 7 years ago) during my short-lived obsession with the Twilight saga. But I knew from the very first scene that this was different, something much more detailed and interesting to watch. I remember how I used to wake up in the middle of the night to watch the show live. Sometimes I was so excited that I wasn't able to sleep before or after the episode because I was thinking so much about it. I've even gotten my mother and brother into the show, even though they've given up on the show in the middle of the fifth season, which was actually a good stopping point. The soundtrack was a vital part of the show. Thank you for introducing me to Florence, Ed Sheeran, Sigur Rós, Damien Rice, Tom Odell, The Neighborhood, The Fray, Digital Daggers, RAIGN and many, many others. Thank you for over 160 awesome songs. Thank you for showing me that there's still good music.
The Vampire Diaries has also led me to the TVD Wiki and a whole community obsessed with the show. Pretty soon I was promoted to a bureaucrat. That community will always have a place in my heart. I'll never forget all the theories with my online and friends in real life. I don't think I've ever been obsessed with something like that since Harry Potter. The premiere of the eight film in 2011 marked the end of my childhood, so I guess that the end of The Vampire Diaries would mark the end of my (extended) teenage years. The Vampire Diaries was the first show I've started following on a weekly basis. It was there during the eight grade, four years of high school and three years of college. It was there for me when it was tough. It was there when nobody else was. I'll never forget that. Even though the last three seasons weren't as good as the first three, this show will always have a special place in my heart. The ending feels like losing a friend. It will never return. Rewatching it will only bring back the memories but not the show itself. Thank you for the great characters. Thank you for teaching me that nobody is really good or evil. All of us have flaws, but we must learn to accept them in others as well as in ourselves. Thank you for interesting storylines. You've always managed to catch us off guard. Thank you for everything because it's been a hell of a ride and I was truly feeling epic.
thank you for writing this, I know how you feel because I went trough the same fases in life while watching this show. It feels weird to have someone who has the same experience while watching this show but also good. You know what it is and how it went. I discoverd the show was going to air on my b-day witch was the day I got the first book on witch the tvseries is based, one day before it was gonna air. So thanks for making me have such an awesome teenage youth :P and to everyone I met here online. It was nice meeting you all :)
Thank you to The Vampire Diaries for everything. I've always kind of not had a place and I just had friends that I didn't know and was never truly passionate about something. When I started watching TVD I wasn't really sure what I would get out of it, but I found my place. TVD led me to writing fan fiction (ik it's cliche) but then I found my passion, which is writing. TVD is the reason that I found my passion, and I could never be more thankful. TVD will always be my favorite show because it's the first show that I completely and utterly loved, and I still do love it. I found a family in it, which is the TVD fandom. I got to be apart of something great in my eyes and that makes me so happy. I found the most amazing songs in this show that have grown to be my all time favorites. People might make fun of me for being obsessed or rewatching all the time, but I don't care. Judge me if you want, because I'm not going to let the world bring me down for enjoying something I love. This end brings a void in my heart because there's not going to be another "previously on the vampire diaries" or any Friday nights in my room just watching this show. I will always love this show.
Thank you TVD for showing me that a girl like me, like Caroline in season 1 can grow to be someone amazing. That I can be whoever I want to be, and I don't have to be scared anymore. Thank you TVD for making me smile when nothing else could. I will never ever forget this show, and I will never stop watching it.
Thank you to Julie, Kevin, Nina, Paul, Ian, Candice, Kat, Matthew, Zach, Michael, Steven, and anyone else involved in this incredible show. You made an impact on over a million people, and you sure as hell made an impact on me.
Like so many before me have said... TVD has a special place in my heart. From the moment we were introduced to Stefan and subsequently, Damon and their respective interactions with Elena in season 1. Then there was Bonnie, a girl just coming into her power and of course who can forget the myth, the legend, the baddest bitch in all of Mystic Falls... Miss Katherine Pierce! i remember watching the season 1 finale and seeing the scene with our introduction to this villain with the "hello John, goodbye John" and thus starting the first of many switcheroos between Katherine and Elena. Now I tuned out after the 100th episode, but I came back for this final season. I remember being hooked week after week. The mythology was great of course and being a sophomore in high school 8 years ago, it was nice to see some romance. In many ways, I grew up with these characters. I have friends outside of the wikia lol, but call it cheesy, but every Thursday night, it felt like I wasn't just watching a tv show. More like I was another member of the Mystic Falls Gang. That these characters were my friends. I cried when some of them died, was happy for others, etc. It''s certainly been one hell of a ride and I for one will miss it.
Yes, the show came to an end. But every season was beautiful in it's own way. It's just as good as it used to be. And if you think I'm wrong: watch the season again, listen to the music, watch the deleted scenes or the making of. And hey, there's no more of the show. So we have to be happy with what we've got :) And thank you SO MUCH to the writiers, cast, and crew for eight life changing years <3
Thank you The vampire diaries for given me so much. I will never be avaible to pay back what you had gave to me. You taught that family is so important and that against all we must stand together. The vampire diaries were there for me when I need it. They make laugh when i need. And I just don't find the world to say goodbye and to thank you for everything. Just thank you and goodbye.
