The Vampire Diaries Season 5 rumored premiere date isn’t until October 10, leaving us many, many long months to wait for our favorite supernaturals to return. How on Earth will we get by without Damon, Stephen, Elena, Katherine, Caroline and all our beloved Vampire Diaries besties until then?

Well, thankfully, The Vampire Diaries fans are hard at work during the summer hiatus coming up with tons of amazing speculation about Season 5, writing fun (and often hilarious) Vampire Diaries fanfiction of all varieties, and putting together awesome fan-made trailers and videos like the one below.
