"Dear Diary, went to school today. My math teacher is a TOTAL pain. Seriously can't believe he asked me to stay after for extra help in front of the ENTIRE class. Great, now everyone knows that I'm an idiot. EXCEPT I'M NOT! Whatever. In other news LOL, fell in love with a 163-year-old-vampire today. I hope he asks me to prom. It's at night, and I'm his type (A negative) so he really has no excuse."

Wait, hold up. That's not what The Vampire Diaries is about? Kinda disappointed then. The real story of a mortal falling in love with someone who has a sordid past attached to the land—mors specifically, a vampire who has to deal with different supernatural families running his Virginia townis surely a lot more interesting though. At least, to the millions of people who watch it. —Hope Schreiber
