mak-and-me2Yesterday, our sweet friend MaryAnn, lovingly known as Mak, passed away. Most of you knew her on Twitter as @mak75231. I felt like I needed to reach out to all of her readers of her Vampire Diaries recaps she did on Vampire Diaries Online. In August of 2013, Mak was diagnosed with cancer, and after several months of treatment, and then learning that the cancer had spread, she lost her fight. I am extremely saddened by her passing. Mak was a very bright light in the TVD fandom, and someone I was able to call a very dear friend. I had the opportunity to spend time with her right before she was diagnosed, she will be terribly missed and the time I spent with her will be cherished. Please take this time to say a prayer for her family (who was by her side until the end), all of her friends, and the people whose lives she touched. Mak really enjoyed writing the Mystic Falls Messenger recaps, and I know that many of you enjoyed them as well. Thank you so much for your support, and for those of you that have sent messages of condolences, I appreciate you all so much. xoxo Ruthie


Alloy Entertainment recently touched base with Caroline Dries for an exclusive interview, where she teases what’s to come in The Vampire Diaries Season 6. Alarenzo bar brawl anyone??

Alloy Entertainment: The anti-magic boundary spell is still intact so, ironically, the vampires of Mystic Falls have sort of become Travelers in the sense that they have no home to return to. That said, where will Season 6 find everyone — a united front trying to reclaim their territory or dispersed on personal journeys?

Caroline Dries: The anti-magic boundary will continue to play a role moving forward as we begin to explore this notion of what it means to go home again. As the story unfolds we’ll see the effects exile has had on everyone and see that everyone is handling it (and the loss of their loved ones) differently and personal journeys will form. Some will be fighting for a way to save their home, others have given up or moved on or found peace with it… We wanted the fallout to be personal for everyone.

Alloy Entertainment: Stefan lost his best friend and brother, and Elena and Jeremy each lost their significant others. How will they each specifically cope with their grief?

Caroline Dries: I can’t go in too much detail without giving things away but the events of the finale were beyond devastating and ripple effects will be felt and change the dynamic of the show.

Alloy Entertainment: Alaric is back in action and so is Enzo. What can you say about their upcoming dynamic? Do you have any Alarenzo scenarios on your wish-list? (Example:
Alaric is teaching history at Whitmore College when Enzo, ever the wise guy, pops up to correct him in the middle of his lecture.)

Caroline Dries: We are very excited in Alaric’s return and plan to incorporate him in Elena’s life hoping to give a type of parental touchstone to her (something she lost when she lost him). Enzo, as we left him, is still a bit of a loose canon wild thing and I can’t wait until the two butt
heads– and I’m sure they will. Let’s see, wish list — feels like there could be a bar brawl in their future. Or maybe they’ll just karaoke compete against each other.

Read the rest of the interview over at Alloy Entertainment.
