Spiked Milk, Sacrifices and a Li’l Moonlight

Whilst I’ve been busy braving rain and roping rainbows lately ( all part of my diabolical masterplan which I will eventually reveal to the masses a.k.a YOU), I’ve also been guestposting and podcasting over at and thought I’d post a quick round-up:

The Vampire Diaries: Katerina

But it wasn’t only haunting, damaged Katherine who had me squinting through blurry eyes to get through this episode. From the igniting of her “Petrova fire” in the tomb scenes with Katherine, to her epic cryfest crosshairs moment of realization on The Porch, Elena had me too. Elena showed such strength and vulnerability and growth as a character in “Katerina” that I give huge applause to both actress Nina Dobrev and the writers for what I do believe is my favourite Elena episode to date …Read More



The Vampire Diaries: The Sacrifice

Oh my double heart snatch! *gulp, gasp, squeeeee* This week’s show stealer goes to badass Original Elijah, who, I must confess is beginning to rival with badass Damon for my affections.

I know. I’m as shocked as you are. I so did not see that coming, but these Originals are so on it.

Add the eerie blood spell/window creep on Elena and the epic reveal that Elijah is NOT actually trying to kill our beloved doppelganger *gasp, double shocker* but wants her kept safe and protected for the time being – well, Holy Salvatores and Saltzman, episode stolen!..Read More


“Aneurysms Of Suck”

A new “Vampire Diaries” (TVD) podcast is heeeere, Mystic Falls fans!

It’s been a bit of a wait, I know, as we’ve been juggling holidays, Comic Con trips and Life but you’re patience is about to pay off. We’ve been getting caught up with “Masquerade”, “Rose” and “Katerina” for December 2nd’s all new episode “Sacrifice” and will be posting very soon, so stay tuned!

Now back to THIS podcast, shall we? (more…)

Love Bites. Love Bleeds. And Then There’s “Plan B”

On “The Vampires Diaries” we’re used to it.

Love bites. Love bleeds.

But last Thursday night it brought fandom to its knees with one of the most shocking, stomach-turning, heart-pounding, episodes of the show’s running thus far.

From the moment Damon began the torturous prelude to gouging out Mason’s bloody heart with his bare hands, I might as well have served mine up on a silver platter to the writers and creators of this crazy ass show. By the end of the episode, my heart and my stomach were in my throat and my eyes were burning from the brilliant insanity of the emotional roller-coaster ride they call “Plan B”.

If you haven’t picked up the vibe already, I really loved this episode- as in Top 5 ranking of my all-time favourite “Vampire Diaries” episodes ever. It was that good. I was a complete emotional, distressed, puffy-eyed wreck when it ended, but I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Ooo, heart reference. Too soon?

Okay, okay. Without further ado, let us on with the review. (more…)

The Vampire Diaries | Bad Moon Rising

I don’t usually make it a habit to do a recap or review per say of “The Vampire Diaries” episodes.

(many amazing people do that already and I read them religiously)

But  “Bad Moon Rising” has had me in such a tizzy of applauding and head-desking (and perhaps a li’l fangirling ) over the last few days, that I’ve decided to take the plunge and post my two-sense on some of the highlights. Also, the whole  ‘moon’ theme was pretty damn near impossible to resist 😉  So here goes:   (more…)

So You’re A Vampire: A Beginner’s Survival Guide For Caroline Forbes

Dear Miss Forbes,

As a season-long member of The Caroline Forbes Fan Club and an advocate for the Preservation of Girlfriends Gone Vamp, I feel it is my duty to write to you to offer you my assistance through this difficult transition.

First and foremost, you should know that Mystic Falls has an extremely low newbie vamp survival rate. And by low, I mean none of them have made it past a few episodes, give or take, before being staked or burned to their untimely undead death. It has become a disturbing trend in your location and this would be the one time you definitely do not want to follow the latest trend.

Instead, might I suggest you set a new one?

Thought that might get your attention.

Without further ado then, here are 8 survival solutions to get you started: (more…)
