I Know What You Are

My favorite new show this year - by a mile - is Kevin Williamson's Vampire Diaries. It has everything a girl like me is looking for. Hot guys, great romance, amazing music and best yet - total escapism. After this week's episode, it looks like Elena has figured out what Stefan is. But that is not the end. Not even close. Here are my other favorite "in the know” couples. Some of them make it. Some of them don't. Some of them are left to our own imaginations.

5. Blood Ties – Vicki & Henry = Things are getting a bit wiggy for P.I. Vicki until hottie Henry shows up. Is he a suspect or the best crime solving partner she has ever had? He can, of course smell the blood left behind. She is convinced that the supernatural happens. Can she be convinced that Henry has feelings for her?

4. Twilight – Bella &Edward = Bella was sure of Edward even before she knew what he was. She knew he was something else. But, to her, it did not matter what the “else” was. She was in from the word go. No talk of fangs or blood or undead was going to keep her from what she wanted most.

3. Moonlight – Beth & Mick = The P.I. Mick has learned to mesh with the humans as best he can. He keeps his blood in the fridge and minds his own business. Until Beth captures his attention – and his heart. Now he has to protect her. From the truth and from himself. She doesn’t want to care what he is. But, maybe they both care just enough to make their love impossible.

2. True Blood – Sookie & Bill = She knew what he was from the get go. And that made her all the more attracted to him. His world provided a peace she had never known. Except that his world proved to be anything but peaceful. Regardless of being used and abused, Sookie will stand by Bill. No matter what his world does to her.

1. Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Angel – Buffy & Angel = Their story is so tragic it should be written in old English. A human girl chosen from millions to be the ONE to slay the demons. The ONE demon of millions cursed with a soul. And the two meet. And fall in love. The love created will never be matched nor will it ever be fully realized. And that is the true tragedy.
