The only time I ever sit down to watch TV is Mon-Thr as a treat for finishing all my homework. At the time this show was airing, I didn't have anything to watch Thr nights. I saw the promos and I my initial thought: another Twilight. But I saw Ian there (my Boone, yes I'm a LOSTie) and I was like I'll give it a shot because of him. I'm so glad I did give it a try because even with the first epi, I was like, this is no Twilight. I watch a couple of epis, and I'm offically hooked.
Believe it or not, the first couple I fell for was Damon/Vicki. Once they killed her I didn't ship anyone, YET. Then I saw the first Damon-Bonnie interaction, and I fell in love immed. with the couple. So much so that I had to read the books for them. I was effy at first because I was the online reviews said they were very diff things. So I decided to post at the Book Talk forum asking if anyone had read it. Since maybe like one or two people had read, I decided to give them a try anyways being the book worm that I am. Soon, I too was hooked with the books. I liked them, as diff as they are from the show, I loved them equally.
I've read all the books (waiting impatiently for the last book to finish the series) and seen all the epis live (minus the finale, which I caught up sometime later online). I noticed people on this site throught were fans, and since Twilight had it's own forum I thought why not collect all the fans to ask for a TVD forum. And here we are.
