After pouring through over 100 responses, the TV Fanatic would like to thank all who participated and announce the following winner: Jennifer Malone.

The Vampire Diaries Soundtrack

While every fan expressed affection for this incredible show, Jennifer moved us with her story of life as the wife of a Marine. Read all the entries HERE and follow the jump to read excerpts from Jennifer's entry.

I'm a wife and mother. Now, while that might not sound all that different from anyone else, I'm married to a United States Marine. My husband recently returned from a seven month deployment in June and is gearing up to head back overseas again come November.

It takes almost all of my time to keep our children entertained and distracted from missing daddy while he's away. One of the ways I do that for them (and myself) is with road trips to see family (something that requires amazing music of course) and other adventures. And finally, the time that I do have to myself, I love to listen to music while I unwind...

After dealing with an active duty military member, the strays he brings home from his squad, cooking for a full house (I feed 8 or 9 on any given night), looking after children, attempting to work at home, donating plasma twice a week, and making the solid effort not to go insane-- I need all the help to unwind that I can get.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
