semele: ([tvd] Damon/Elena Stefan/Elena)
There are many other things I'm supposed to be doing right now, and I wasn't even going to write anything about Elena for [livejournal.com profile] womenlovefest, but I can't help it, I need it out of my system ;).

The only argument I ever had about Elena took place a couple of months ago during some episode discussion on 2x20 The Last Day and I still strongly belive in everything I said back then, so I might as well make it into a short yet proper meta.

semele: ([tvd] Caroline Forbes)
There is a music video under the cut. I owe [livejournal.com profile] idrilka my firstborn for all the beta reading she does for me.

I probably first heard this song in the original version, since both of my parents are Queen fans, but I don't remember it at all. I got all crazy about „The Show Must Go On” only after watching Moulin Rouge, and it doesn't matter that later on I grew to love how Freddie Mercury sang it. In my mind „The Show Must Go On” will always have a face of Nicole Kidman and will always be about a girl who is too proud to give up and show her weakness, even though (or perhaps: because?) she knows she is going to die soon. Only while writing this entry did I realize that the lyrics are much more ambigious than I originally thought and the song might be perceived as bitter or desperate. That's why I decided to post this version ― I need Nicole Kidman singing „I'll top the bill” for this song to be undoubtedly about pride. The kind of pride I find in Caroline.
