Trivia

An unnamed acoustic theme used throughout Kyle XY(Often at emotional climaxes) is used when Stefan and Elena are talking on the bridge. This is probably because both Brian Young(Executive Producer/Writer on The Vampire Diaries) and Julie Plec(Executive Producer/Writer on The Vampire Diaries) worked on Kyle XY together as writers and producers.

Quotes

Caroline Forbes: Why didn't he go for me? How come the guys that I want never want me? I'm inappropriate, always say the wrong thing and Elena always says the right thing. She doesn't even try, and he just picks her. And she's always the one that everyone picks. For everything. And I try so hard and I'm never the one...

so i read your comment about how Vampire Diaries ripped off Twilight i think you should do a bit of research before you say anyone would rip off that piece of crap by Stephenie Meyer. sorry to burst your bubble but Stephenie Meyer is the one who rips off everyone trying to be someone. Vampire Diaries was published in Septemeber of 1991 where as Twilight was published in 2005. though the show may be similar to the crap people call a movie, Twilight, the story and its concept came way before Stephenie dreamt that ridiculous scene which caused dumb little girls to go crazy. and with the True Blood series originally known as, The Southern Vampire Mysteries the first one was published in 2001, 4 years before Twilight. I just finished watching the first episode and i have to admit it does feel like the same torture i went through when watching the Twilight movie, at least the actors can act, which is saying a lot because the main people in Twilight cant. so you're wrong. :) research before you say others are rip offs. just saying.
