I only started thinking about watching Vampire Diaries in November, to be honest, when I saw a few items about Ian Somerhalder doing
double-duty; filming his appearances in
Lost as well as being Damon in Vampire Diaries.  I have always been a sucker for that man, he is just
so ridiculously when the CW ran a marathon of the first 10 episodes in December, I watched and fell in love with the
show.  Aaaand...when I love a show, it becomes a site in
SolitaryPhoenix.  :)  This whole explanation is basically just to let you know why
the items here only start from December '09, when the show started in September.
