A/N Prompted by [ profile] mlekopijca, corrected by [ profile] idrilka. After Klaus life in Mystic Falls comes back to normal. Caroline's POV. Crack. Sorry about that, but today has been all "Headache: The Sequel" and I couldn't think of anything more ambitious :(. Also, I don't usually write fic in English, so be warned.

They live like a big, happy, dysfunctional family right now... )

The more time I spend writing meta posts about Caroline, the more I am tempted to put it aside just for a little while and write a huge meta about TVD friendships in general. So I'm just going to combine those two and write about Caroline's friendships, it should satisfy my need for a while :).

I believe some explanation is in order. The thing is, I'm quite a lousy shipper. I tend to ship canon (like Buffy/Spike or Jack/Ianto) and I usually fail to notice obvious yet not explicitly canon chemistry (like Damon/Alaric) until my friends point me at it and say: "See, this is chemistry, and you are not human if you can't see it." And even then I like to take sexual tension away from the equation from time to time ― a new angle is always refreshing.

So, four people and four dialogues I associate with their friendships with Caroline. It's a sort of experiment. I was wondering what kind of picture would I get if I just combined the first four scenes that come to my mind when I think about Caroline's friends. See what I got.

Another wonderful banner by [ profile] juana_a. This is one of the most beautiful TVD scenes ever and I'm posting it here for me to remeber that, despite all those pretty glum things I'm going to write in this meta, I do believe in friendship and I think that TVD is awesome when it comes to stressing just how important friendships are.

You help your friend. That's what you do )

Corrected by [ profile] idrilka. At least this time it was fun for her, because I'm braindead and I made some typos that are gonna be remembered for the next ten years.

Again, I wasn't supposed to be writing about Elena. I was supposed to focus on Donna Noble (Doctor Who) and do it in Polish, but than I started reading all those TVD meta posts and discussions on [ profile] womenlovefest and they are so inspiring I can't stop writing about TVD characters. Seriously, this started out as celebrating female characters, but right now it's a huge brainstorm that gives me loads of meta ideas and five plotbunnies per hour. Since there is a ficathon coming on [ profile] multifandom_pl, I really owe you guys.

I am a faithful Elena/Damon shipper, although my ideas as to how this ship could look like started to change as the series went on. I also enjoy my threesome and I have some secondary pairings I support, but when it comes to romantic relationships in TVD, Elena/Damon is my main point of focus (partly because there is a girl on my flist who writes such amazing Stefan I don't even have the courage to start). Only during the fest-related discussions did I realize that this ship is actually my way of interpreting Elena, so it might be interesting to write a meta instead of yet another fic.

Because I'm an Elena/Damon shipper for all the wrong reasons.

Title: To remember
Fandom: The Vampire Diaries
Rating: NC17 (for general mindfuck and mentions of sexual abuse)
Spoilers: 2x16
Wordcount: 1200
Warnings: mentions of past sexual abuse, psychological abuse nad mind control
A/N: Originally written in Polish (see here), translated by [ profile] idrilka, because I'm incapable of translating my own work. I definitely owe her my firstborn and some chocolate chip muffins (I also made other promises, but I would rather not mention them in public). As to the story: Caroline/Damon, Caroline POV. It's not graphic or explicit, but the very idea of mind control as depicted in TVD freaks me out far more than chainsaws, hence the high rating.

There is a music video under the cut. I owe [ 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.

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 [ 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.

Ostatnio w ramach prób namówienia mojej ciotki na oglądanie Doctora Who usiadłam sobie z nią przed monitorem i włączyłam "The Unicorn and the Wasp", wychodząc z założenia, że moja lubiąca kryminały ciotka na pewno złapie się na numer z Agathą Christie. Wybieg się udał, a ja w międzyczasie zostałam zupełnie z zaskoczenia wbita w ziemię przez jeden krótki dialog z udziałem Donny.

P.S. Jest mi wstyd, że nie mam jeszcze ikonki z Donną, ale obiecuję ją sobie sprawić w pierwszej wolnej chwili.

Ok, now that I'm more or less finished with being stunned by all the [ profile] womenlovefest awesomeness and I've regained the ability to express myself coherently, I shall proceed to meta writing ;). I've spent the last three days on adrenaline rush I'm recovering from right now, so I'm afraid my meta is more like a stream of consciousness rather than a proper essay. This entry is focused rather on season one than season two, but there are season two references, hence the spoiler alert. I was simply re-watching some episodes from early season one with a friend just last week, and now I seem to take most of my examples from there. Tonight I plan on seeing some season two episodes, just for a change ;).

I've managed to talk [ profile] juana_a into making this wonderful banner for me. Since she is a Caroline fan herself, it wasn't hard to persuade her :D.

Spędziłam ostatnie 24h w szale, robiąc rzeczy na [ profile] womenlovefest. Czuję się trochę jakbym pracowała w jakimś biurze festiwalowym, jestem padnięta, ale jest zarąbiście!!! Do oficjalnego rozpoczęcia zostały niecałe cztery godziny, a my powoli dobijamy do trzystu zadeklarowanych bohaterek i dwustu członków community. Dawno nie byłam tak szczęśliwa, jestem tak zmęczona, że ledwo widzę na oczy, ale jeśli ktoś mi jeszcze kiedyś powie, że ludziom to się teraz nic nie chce robić bezinteresownie, to wykrzesam z siebie jeszcze trochę energii i dam mu w ryj, bo naprawdę... Wiedziałam, że istnieje na świecie wielu zarąbistych ludzi, ale jeszcze nigdy nie widziałam ich aż tylu w jednym miejscu. Wszyscy, którzy bierzecie udział w [ profile] womenlovefest - DZIĘKUJĘ!

Uwaga organizacyjna: na razie robimy wszystko po angielsku, bo lwia część community posługuje się tym językiem, a my chcemy jak najszybciej przekazać jak najwięcej treści. Niedługo pojawi się post z zasadami, jak wrzucać na community linki do swoich notek, a jako że zostało nam teraz trochę czasu, zrobimy go za jednym zamachem też po polsku. Jeśli ktoś z Was ma jakieś wątpliwości dotyczące czegokolwiek oprócz tego, jak będzie się wrzucać linki do swoich notek, może pytać tutaj.

Z innych spraw: na [ profile] multifandom_pl pojawiło się friending meme, zapraszamy!
