Spy Game: Meet The Team

I’ll let this gorgeous piece of art speak for itself.


Five Questions With: Elijah

DEL: Welcome to the first in our series of “Five Questions” interviews everyone. Thanks also to Elijah for taking time out of his coffin – literally- to be here with us. Let’s crack on, shall we?

Elijah: Thank you for having me.

DEL: The first question has to be about the brothers Salvatore. There have been a lot of comparisons made about Damon and Stefan mirroring yourself and Klaus and people trying to figure out who is who. I’d like to keep it simpler than that with two true or false statements.

Elijah: By all means.

DEL:  You respect Damon. You believe Stefan is an honorable man. Which is true and which is false?

Elijah: They’re both true and false to an extent.  Damon has done things that are worthy of respect and other things that aren’t. Respect is best when it’s mutual and when it’s been earned. He hasn’t completely earned mine but I suspect that I haven’t earned his either. And as for Stefan,  there’s honor in him, certainly but it would be a mistake to think that’s what defines him or even that it’s always a good thing.

DEL: You’ve been defined as “an honorable man” yourself. Are you saying that’s bad?

Elijah: A man of honor is more easily tempted to believe the words of others precisely because he  is a man of honor. You can see how well it’s worked out for me.

DEL: Moving on slightly, let’s talk about the 1490s and your relationship with Katerina Petrova. Why did you want to save her from the sacrifice ritual  at all in the first place?

Elijah: The Petrova doppelgangers are as different from each other as they are from the woman whose face they wear. And yet they all come by power over the men in their lives all too easily.

DEL: …

Elijah: smiles enigmatically.

DEL: sighs resignedly but proceeds with the interview.  You know Klaus better than anyone – at least anyone we’ve met so far. What do you think we can expect from him next season?

Elijah: Even with the curse in place and his deadliest instincts tempered, Niklaus has always been the most sadistic, the bloodthirstiest and the darkest of us all. His capacity for pain, death and destruction knows no bounds. Now that the  curse is broken, only one person can defeat him.

DEL: If I ask, will you tell me who that person is?

Elijah: What do you think?

DEL: I think I should save my breath and ask a different question.

Elijah: smiles enigmatically.

DEL: Alright, last question. You showed us in that scene with Elena at the Lockwood’s that you’re up to speed with modern catch phrases and slang. Is that something you enjoy or was your “OMG” moment, a one off?

Elijah: Adaptability is an important part of being a vampire. As times change so does fashion and technology and speech patterns. I admit though that I’m equal parts fascinated and amused by humanity’s affection for acronyms. I’ve a particular fondness for HBIC.

DEL: I’d ask if you had a specific HBIC in mind but I’m all out of questions. Thanks for joining us.

Elijah: It was my pleasure.

Coming Attractions: Spy Game

The fantabulous Dazed Rose made a promo poster for my new-soon-to-be-published fic, Spy Game. Feast your eyes.

Coming Attractions

The amazing, wonderful, insanely talented deviousdramaqueen indulged my request and made a trailer for the fanfiction that I’ll begin posting shortly on my LJ. It’s going to be my big “summer hiatus” project. It’s based on the original La Femme Nikita series and will be AU/AH.

Thank you so much for doing this, Vic. Just watching it makes me even more excited myself for this story. Should be a wild ride!

Fan Fic Relocation

So some of you may know that I had a spot of bother with some plagiarists over on FF.net. As a result I’ve moved all of my Vampire Diaries stories onto a Live Journal account which is located at http://www.ciara2531.livejournal.com. I have the account set to friends only so if you’d like to read my fics, please message me/send a friend request.

Meanwhile, the ever awesome Dazed Rose made me a banner for my lastest one shot.  Thank you darlin’!

Five Questions With….

So it’s the hiatus and while I definitely have some stuff going fiction wise, I thought it might be fun to do one or two things with this blog over the summer break.

So to start,  I decided to play around with the idea of “talking” to the characters outside their normal TVD context. This idea has had various shapes in my head and I finally decided on a “Five Questions With” format so that each one can be kept pretty short and sweet.

Not in any particular order ( although I’ll probs save Damon and Elena for last) I’m planning to “interview” :

Elijah, Klaus, Alaric, Jeremy, Caroline, Katherine, Stefan, Damon and Elena.

If there are any other characters you’d like to hear from, tell me. And if you have any questions for me any of the characters then leave them in the comments 🙂

Hopefully the end result is at least mildly entertaining!

My Eyes Linger Longer Than They Should

The title of this post comes from the song “I Should Go” which played during Damon and Elena’s final scene in his bedroom. It’s especially fitting when you considering that lingering looks are something they’ve had going for them since the very beginning.

As he lay dying, the woman he loved gave him everything she could and so much more than he asked for.  It was beautiful. They are beautiful. The love they feel for each other is real and this moment, THEIR moment, can never be taken away from them or from us.
