The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Originals" (4/27/2013)-I am forever and always an Elijah fangirl. I enjoyed he, Klaus, and Marcel in this episode but Elijah was killing it. That freaking entrance...ripping the heart out and the way he adjusted his suit afterwards. The snarky comment about New Orleans. The pep talks. That air of confidence and nobility. Elijah is soo sexy. -I feel like a horrible person, but I'm still actively wishing the baby isn't to be. Denial. Because that's what I'm in. -Who? Oh yeah. You uh, were kinda...r.I.p -sure. Either way both shows have to work to give her something but...Family is everything in The Originals. -Marcel hands down. I am beyond intrigued. -They did. I'm thrilled.

Favorite couple?? (12/10/2011)
My favorite couple overall at the moment is Samcedes. They are such an unorthodox, unexpected couple...I mean prior to the Prom episode they hardly even shared a scene together but I LOVE them. They make me smile and I genuinely like both characters on their own.
I'm a Puckleberry shipper moreso. I just think they kind of fit each other perfectly. They balance each other out and they seem to really care about each other, even as friends.
I wouldn't ship Quinn with anyone. No one deserves that sort of punishment. She's just mean. I mean she and Santana are the resident bitches but at least Santana is vulnerable and sweet with Brittany. Quinn can't even allow herself to be vulnerable in a relationship with anyone. Ugh.
It's NEVER okay to put your hands on anyone. Double standards are ridiculous. If he would have smacked her for being a royal Bitch he'd have no sympathies...the same should be said. This is the problem with double standards...they leave too muuch room for wrong behaviour to be excused. Like the fact that people are more outraged by the fact that a gay person is having to deal with being "outed". I still maintained that technically her sexuality wasn't a secret in the school and the true wrongdoers were the adults who made the ad not FInn. But what really sucks here, is that the type of verbal abuse she unleashes on others is ignored because we'd rather focus on her hardships of being a lesbian. IT's reflective in the media as well. How many kids experience bullying to unthinkable levels and get ignored...but now, unfortunately the only time a spotlight is being put on bullying these days is when it's affecting a kid being bullied over their sexuality. What about everyone else? What about all those other voices being ignored because of other reasons? What kind of message does that send. I'm an activist of human rights. I'm for gay rights and civil rights and everything inbetween but it's so wrong to only put a spotlight on gay issues when there are sooo many other issues that need to be discussed along with it. So as a fan of Santana and a fan of Finn...it killed me that after that episode with all the horrible things going on by so many parties they only thing people want to discuss is how horrible it is that Santana got outed. It hurts me to my soul...because so many people got hurt physically,mentally, and emotionally in that episode...but she's the only one that people want to talk about. I hate how we feel the need to focus on one issue at the expense of another. Why does gay bullying have to take precedence over all the other forms of it? Why does abuse of women have to take precedence over abuse of men? Why do missing white kids have to take precedence over missing ethnic kids? I was horrified that Finn said what he said so loudly...but I was equally horrified by Santana's behavior, slapping people and throwing balls at their heads as well. None of it should have been happening. None of it is excusable and if Finn's actions aren't justifiable then you can't justify Santana being a bitch because "that's just the way she is."
There are plenty of graves filled with people who died too young because somebody like Santana was just being Santana. I REFUSE to excuse somebody's behavior because it's "just the way they are". The moment we as a society can stop doing that is the day where we can truly prevent school shootings and teen suicides. Period. End of Story.
agree with sgleek. I actually like Santana most of the time, but she was ridiculously cruel and vicious in this particular episode and I hate when people use pathetic excuses to justify treating people a certain way. Everyone has problems, everyone has secrets, everyone has issues and troubles, and everyone is human. I can't excuse Santana being a royal bitch to everyone because she's hurting inside...her and everybody else at somepoint in their lives. If you yourself don't play by the rules you should NEVER assume everyone else is supposed to play by them. The fact that she didn't expect Finn to say anything back to her was insulting and equally as vicious. She expected him to take it...and as someone who doesn't get worked up often and lets things roll off my back until I get pushed too far and finally explode...I get that. She took advantage of the fact that he's usually fairly nice and doesn't usually say anything...that was foolish of her. Because he's human and is capable of being pushed too far. Everyone has a breaking point...and that was his. You know what people like Finn get in matters like this? The whole "be the bigger person" mantra. Which has always been a load of bs...something I personally recieve often because you're giving someone else the license to be horrible people w/o being put in their place, while almost punishing the person whose forced to recieve the viciousness. It was wrong that Finn stated that in the hallways...but it never would have been said if she would have laid off of him. She initiated something and underestimated the repercussions that would come of it...that's on her. Maybe she'll learn something. It's a heck of lesson to learn but she did bring that one on herself. Those who live in glass houses...as the saying goes. Her house was made of fine crystal so she never should have started something assuming that no one else would finish it. Santana's a bitch to everyone doesn't fly...the fact that she may or may not say things as comic relief doesn't fly either. For every person whose a Santana there is another person who isn't emotionally stable enough to handle her "jokes". A joke to others may not be a joke to someone else. I mean in the age of so many kids committing suicide and doing unthinkable things...you'd think people would realize that. Simply put...never underestimate your opponent. You don't know what other people are going through or the mindset that their in or whether or not your "joke" could be the final straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back. It was a reality check for her...and yes Finn did do it out of retaliation...but who wouldn't have?It doesn't take away from the fact that he spoke truth..it was still a life lesson. Clearly somethings aren't funny. What annoys me is she should have learned this lesson a while ago. It reminded me of how she had the audacity to be crying and upset when Rachel told her that she'd end up swinging on a pole when she was older...was it harsh? Yes...did she push Rachel to the point where Rachel retaliated? yeah. I cannot be mad at Rachel for that. Lesson should have been learned then, but instead Santana got even more vicious. I also hate the fact that if Santana was shredding a girl the way she was shredding Finn, it would be catastrophic.
