Ogle alert is not to be mistaken for Google Alert and it’s a heck of a lot more fun. So hold onto your fanny packs while I introduce you to the two new men in my life – that’s right two.
Paul Wesley aka Stefan Salvatore & Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore
For anyone who doesn’t recognize them, they are costars on The Vampire Diaries. I’ll admit when the series was recommended to me my first thought was “More Vampires?” and they are, but this is really something special.
The obsession with the Salvatores all started with a blog post - an educational blog post. I can hear you all snickering! It really was! We were discussing the transformation of an antagonist into a protagonist (Damon is a great example of more than just being hit by the pretty stick) but then the shirts started coming off…
…what was I saying?...
There’s a heck of a storyline behind the series, but when it comes to romance both of the Salvatore brothers are in love with the same girl. Who doesn’t love a tortured hero redeemed by love? However only one of the brooding brothers gets the girl, so there’s also an element of forbidden, unrequited love that ramps up the tension.
Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries is out now and Season 2 isn’t far behind. So buy it, hire it or bite someone for it because the writers are amazing and the characters are unforgettable.
Who doesn’t love a man with a puppy?
