Re: Team Stefan or Team Damon?

I am 100% team Damon!!! I have only read the first book but its like completely different from the show. I was really surprised when i read it. Nothing is the same i don't know how they can even call the show The Vampire Diaries.

Re: Team Stefan or Team Damon?

I've never watched the show but read the first 5 books-I couldnt read anymore after that they just got way too bizzare.   I ended up liking them both but I'm more of a  team Stefan than Damon.  The only reason I even liked Damon was because in the last book I read you actually see a different side of him-like he actually has feelings & cares about other people & not just taking Elena away from his brother.

Re: Team Stefan or Team Damon?

SaraMariaa I agree 100%-Ive seen previews for the show & couldnt believe they didnt cast someone with at least blonde hair or dye the actress' hair.  I also heard from a friend that either Bonnie or Meredith arent even in the series-can't remember which one though-both are really important characters.  But the show seems to be really popular so they are obviously doing something right

Re: Team Stefan or Team Damon?

Ya, I completely agree with you guys about the differences in the books and shows. I look at both of them as separate things. I was a little mad at first on how the show was barely using the book but the show is awesome! Its very different, but so suspenseful. I agree with SaraMariaa that it really isn't based on the books thought with everything they changed about it. However, I totally recommend it as a show. It really is amazing what the writers come up with! Plus, you still see tid bits of the snarky Damon and gentle Stefan we see in the books.

Re: Team Stefan or Team Damon?

I think of the books and the show as completely different things.. because well they are COMPLETELY different! I am currently on the fourth book and to tell you the truth I forget most of the books because I read them over a year ago!! I plan on gettting back into them sometime... I think in the books I was more of a team Stefan girl but I was still kind of liking Damon also!!

 

I think the shows are amazing!! I just finished season 1 though and am waiting... impatiently for season 2 to come out on DVD!!! The suspense is killing me!! Anyways... at the very start of the show I was team Stefan through and through just because Damon was kind of evil! But as the show went on I was more Damon just for the fact that Stefan kept making stupid mistakes and little details about his not so great past came out... And then Damon actually started to care for people.. GASP!!... and he was kinda sweet and caring... but not to much! One thing that bothers me about Stefan is that sometimes he is just too nice and caring. I mean I like nice in caring people but sometimes he is just to much! And I'm also a sucker for bad boys so TEAM DAMON it is!!! =)

@ZoeyRedbird

i agree that i was more of a stefan fan in the books. damon was just obnoxious and interfering with elena and stefan's relationship. but in the show, im a sucker (<--hahaha vamp joke:smileyvery-happy:) for damon. i know who doesn't love a bad boy??? and your gonna love damon more in the second season. if you can't wait for the dvd, go on fastpasstv.ms (don't add .com to it) and i swear its not spam or crap. i use it all the time if i miss an episode.

Haha I agree with you on everything!! =) I was watching season 1 with my friend and she likes Stefan better and I told her "Let's make a deal... you can have Stefan and I'll take Damon... okay?" Then we shook on it. Boy is she gonna regret that!!! Argghhhh I can't wait any longer! So thanks so much for the website I will be looking it up... PRONTO!! =)
