Ah. But here’s the thing. They’ve been BUILDING Bamon since SEASON ONE. Whether or not people want to accept it, Bamon have the STRONGEST foundation for a relationship built than any other pairing on the show. It’s a whole hell of a lot stronger than Steroline’s foundation and Klaroline’s foundation, two ships that literally were pulled out of JP’s ass as fan-service. We’ve gotten Bamon moments every single season. Few moments, yes. but SOLID moments. Those moments established that Damon and Bonnie, in their own messed up way, care about one another a great deal. We got Damon saving Bonnie’s life twice. We got Damon waiting on an island for Bonnie and hugging her. We got Elena saying that Damon kind of loves Bonnie. So if they kind of already LOVE eachother, how much more of a stretch would it be for them to fall IN love? Do you see? The foundation is already THERE. The LOVE is already there. It’s just one more step to fall in love. Bamon has been BUILT girl. For five damn seasons. They’ve been BUILT. And we are about to see it come to fruition. And it’s going to be glorious. Just you wait.
And, hey, if you ever need more proof of just how possible it is to make a ship like Bamon work on a slow-moving TV show, look at Clois. Clana was built through Seasons 1 - 7 of Smallville and even while Clark was with Lana, the writers were building Clois on the side from Seasons 4 through 10. So that when Lana was no longer a part of Clark’s life after Season 7, the foundation with Lois was already there to take over. The love for Lois was already there. Because of the foundation that they had even while Clark was with Lana. And all Clark needed to do was fall in love with her in no time whatsoever and realize that Lois was the one who he needed all along :) When all else fails, remember Clois!
What’s beyond The Other Side? Kat Graham and Ian Somerhalder return for TVD Season 6 in ONE MONTH!
can't escape your eyes / no matter how hard I try
So this was posted on the TVD facebook page
I have been waiting for this to appear on my dash again
If I were to ever actually do modeling, this would be like a weekly occurance
I JUST SAW IT ANON
and man, i gotta tell you— who ever thought it was a good idea to start the season off with a promo of elena crying needs to reevaluate their job.
they had the chance to promote the season in a completely new light, & that’s something they desperately needed to do with their plummeting ratings..and they chose to emphasize elena’s grief. like that hasn’t already been shown/explored/beaten to a pulp for 3 seasons? stefan calling elena, caroline talking about elena, damon visiting elena— i mean seriously? these characters are no longer people, but props for elena.
there’s an endless amount of other narratives they could’ve focused on. stefan’s denial, caroline having trouble pulling everybody together, jeremy going off the rails, bonnie being lost, damon getting his shit together, alaric coming back from the dead, enzo being reckless, or you know…showing matt & tyler at all. and they opted for an elena-centric preview. how is that supposed to entice anybody to continue watching? it looks like all the other seasons to me.
hmm a 19 yr old who developed a drug problem because of a boy…no thanks. now if it was stefan or caroline or legit almost anybody else with that storyline, you could color me intrigued. but unfortunately that’s asking too much from this show.
but to be honest, i’m truly not evently remotely phased. i wasn’t expecting this show to shell out anything that wasn’t pointless drivel. they can focus on the limited narrative of a 19 yr old girl for 10 more seasons for all i care.
i just know i won’t be watching this season unless somebody tells me the quality has significantly improved.
I’ll be watching but yeah the NEED to change it up and STOP focusing ONLY on Elena’s side of the story and having EVERYTHING revolve explicitly around her because as its been said, its been the same way with her for the last 3 seasons, and no one wants to see that AGAIN! As a season opener or even as an ongoing story line. Boring! Uninspiring! KILL IT DEAD ALREADY.
Thinking about the time when Bonnie and Damon will have the choice to come back in Real Life, but then Bonnie chose to stay dead, to stay in the “alternate life” she is, a place where she finally feel peaceful. Imagine Damon’s reaction, panicking, trying to make her change her mind, cause he really doesnt want to come back in real life without her, aaaw <3
It just make me think of this scene in the tv show Lost with Juliet and Sawyer at the dock, when Juliet say she want to leave, Sawyer say “What about me ?… Who’s gonna get my back” :O *deaaaad just thinking about Damon saying that to Bonnie*
