Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
This week's teaser comes from Paradise Lost: Evensong by LJ Smith. Have you guys heard of this yet? After LJ was essentially fired from writing the Vampire Diaries series she turned to Kindle Worlds and began finishing the story she started so many years ago in the form of fanfiction. LJ describes it better and includes links to her two latest installments HERE in case you're interested. I know a lot of people prefer the TV show to the books, but I love me some Damon and Bonnie and that can only be found in the LJ books, so I might have spazzed a little when i found out she was continuing their story. For anyone who's a fan of the books, and Bamon in particular, I suggest you look into these!
“And something inside him was crouching in astonishment, muttering, Oh, yes, grab the crazy guy and yell at him. Brilliant survival policy. Where did you learn that, then? Suicide school?”
“Someone was hurting Bonnie, he'd realized, perhaps even killing her. That meant someone was going to be exceedingly sorry exceedingly soon.”
Synopsis of Evensong:
This fanfic is based on The Vampire Diaries book series—also by L. J. Smith—and takes place after the volume Midnight.
Damon is back and enjoying his vampire existence to its fullest. Elena, Bonnie and their friends are in their third week at Dalcrest College, ordinary students aware of an extraordinary world that verges on their own campus.
Stefan is scarcely aware that he is living in a fragile paradise with Elena as his devoted girl . . . until one night it all shatters. He wakes from a dream to find Elena limp and white in his arms and rushes her to the hospital for a massive transfusion.
Elena survives, but Stefan decides that the only way she will ever truly be safe is without him. To make his exit complete, Stefan removes himself from the memories of Elena, her friends, and all of Fell’s Church.
Can first love ever really be forgotten? Will Damon finally have Elena by his side as his Princess of Darkness? The epic story begins in Evensong: Paradise Lost.
