Which TV Show Gave Vampire Diaries Fan Fiction a Shout Out?
Do you spend your nights typing away, dreaming up sexy storylines for your favorite Vampire Diariescouple — or characters whom you hope will couple up? According to a certain primetime TV show, you’re not alone.
In the March 31 episode of CBS’s The Good Wife, Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) found something that could be potentially damaging to Diane’s (Christine Baranski) future Illinois Supreme Court bid: Vampire Diaries fanfic sent from her email address.
“Elena knew it was wrong to want Damon,” Kalinda begins, reading from the fanfic. “She was about to marry Stefan, after all.”
Kalinda continues, and apparently the imagined story culminates with some Delena pickup truck sex. (Clearly this was written before Season 4, when such a thing was still a mere fantasy.) While Diane claims to have never heard of The Vampire Diaries and blames the story on her housekeeper, we’re not so sure. TVD’s allure is pretty universal and Diane says she would never feel “compelled” to write something like sexy fanfic. Compelled.
Nonetheless, Kalinda informs Diane that her name being linked with vampire fanfic could make her the subject of ridicule.
Sigh. There go our hopes and dreams of being president some day!
