Missed opportunity: VD cast in Germany

I'm not exactly a convention goer (I've attended 2 in my whole life) nor am I an overt fan of Vampire Diaries. That is I watch the show, have a fondness for Damon and Elija, own the DVDs, but that's it. I'm not involved in fanfiction nor would I travel long distances in order to meet cast members. However, when those cast members kindly come to the immediate vicinity of my home, that is certainly an opportunity worth seizing. Of course I felt no need to attend all 3 days of this convention, I was merely planning to get a day pass for Sunday and attend the panels of Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Zach Roerig. The organizers kept announcing that there were plenty of tickets left which could be bought at the door.

So, when I was just ready to leave this morning, I got a text message from zartherbes, who had gone there earlier because she wanted to do the photo sessions, telling me that the tickets were sold out. Bummer. I'm not particularly sad, it's just that it would have been nice to see the actors for real.

So, instead I spent a sunny day at the lake, contemplating on my story for fkficfest. After a fluent start, I'm currently kind of stuck beside the plot.

Now back to the UEFA EURO 2012.


I'm sorry the photo sessions were sold out. That definitely is a "bummer." At least you don't particularly care about VD, I suppose. I'll be honest--I watched the first season and that was it. The show didn't attract me despite its popularity and that I own some VD books.

As for fkficfest, at least you have a "fluent start." I don't even have that. I'm still in the brainstorming phase and I've changed my mind on which prompt to write at least five times already, LOL.
I liked season 1 best. Then I continued watching because the plot became so intricated that I just sat there curious what they had come up with now. LOL
I did not like that Damon turned from being the bad guy to the love-struck-trying-to-be-good-one-so-that-his-girl-cares-about-him. I liked him better when he was evil. And he was deliciously evil in season 1 with an agenda behind his deeds as opposed to Stephen whom they turned just evil in season 3 for the sake of being evil. I hope I make sense. LOL

As for fkficfest: It took some time to decide which prompt as well.
Yeah, I tend to like the bad guys and I don't want them turning "baby-face" as they sometimes do in these shows. I mean, sometimes, I do like it, but if I really like a bad guy for all the trouble he causes, I want him or her to stay that way. I'm glad I didn't stick around to see that. I would have been annoyed.

And, as for fkficfest, I'm glad you finally chose one. Hopefully, the debate was because you had very good prompts!
Fluent starts are good. I still have to set fingers to keyboard, being otherwise occupied at the moment. Not to worry, there's still plenty of time—well, up to the point when suddenly there isn't.
Well, good luck. I always need to have a good part written early. Otherwise I would get nervous that I might not meet the deadline.
