Some days you need a happy ending…

Today is definitely one of those days. I looked through my favorite TVD stories on FanFiction this morning in search of a happy ending. Unfortunately, nothing really grabbed me. When I did try to read, I was easily distracted, which made reading near impossible.

I lost count of the interruptions when I realized what was distracting me. My muse, bless her heart, already had a happy ending in mind. I just needed to pay attention to her. So, I did.

The result is Hope’s Reward. Give it a read. Let me know what you think. If you have any favorite Delena fics, please, share them!

Seemingly Impossible Task

Today’s announcement that Nina Dobrev will be leaving The Vampire Diaries at the end of the season has truly floored me. I suppose I should have been expecting it and maybe I was on some level. I’ve read the rumors over the last several months that things were not unicorns and rainbows on set. Frankly, I don’t care about the actors’ personal lives. As long as everyone shows up and does their job in a professional manner, I’m a happy camper. I just want to see twenty-two episodes of my shows each season.

I’ve spent the last several hours trying to figure out how the writers get us from Point A (episode 6×17) with a happy Damon and Elena to Point B (episode 6×22) where Elena dies or leaves town or whatever the writers have planned. The path totally escapes me, although I can’t help but wonder if this is why the cure is back in play.

Even harder for me to envision is what season seven will look like. I consider Elena to be the central character around whom the show was built. To move forward without her seems like an impossible task. However, I have to have faith that the producers and writers will deliver, otherwise I’m just crushed.

So, I anxiously await the final five episodes of season six and plan to mourn the loss of Elena during the summer hiatus. When October rolls around and season seven premieres, I will be sitting in front of the TV, excited to see what season seven holds for the residents of Mystic Falls.

Any theories, anyone? Please share!
