THE ENDGAME OF VAMPIRE DIARIES

on 11 June 2012. Posted in 2012

img thendThe rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Yes, I am alive. I’m even writing frantically night and day. I’ll give more details about that later, but meanwhile I’d like to answer a question I get very frequently in my emails. It is “how would THE VAMPIRE DIARIES endgame have played out?” or “Who would end up with whom? Or “Who would Elena pick? So I’d like to share my answer to an email I got today, and maybe allow other people to understand the situation.


Hi Heather--

Thank you so much for your kind words about my works! I do deeply appreciate readers who have gone beyond THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and you and Dominika have gone waaaaay beyond! :) Thank you! Do you know, everyone asks me the question, what would the endgame have been like in TVD? Who would win the Grand Prize (Damon)? You may not believe it but there are many readers who would like to see Elena with Stefan and Bonnie with Damon. And since I wrote scenes showing that they care for each other, that's logical.

The problem with asking me "Who would Elena pick?" is that I had planned to write at least five other books--long books, not like the ghostwriter's--with a lot of switching and turnabouts and secrets revealed and surprises before the endgame book. (In between books like the one where Stefan comes to out of unconsciousness with an almost-exsanguinated Elena in his arms (exsanguinated means drained of blood--but you knew that!). He can't remember anything--how they started sharing blood that night or anything else but he rushes Elena to the hospital and after many transfusions the doctors save her. Then Stefan, confused, but (of course!) bitterly guilty, Influences Elena to forget everything about him and their relationship and to think that Damon (who's a grade above them in college in my world) is her boyfriend and always has been. And when Elena wakes up that's just what she thinks. Stefan has warned (well, threatened) Elena's friends to leave the situation alone, so Elena spends weeks believing that Damon's always been her boyfriend. Damon, although startled and a little skeptical about whether the Influence will hold is naturally happy to play along, although he does some detective work when Stefan confesses that he has memory loss for the night he almost killed Elena. Elena goes on believing that Damon is her childhood sweetheart until . . . well, a lot of other things happen, but eventually Elena does remember Stefan. (And hits him a lot with a rolled up newspaper for Influencing her.)

The problem is I won't get to write that book or any of the others I had planned. I am over being upset about this, although I will always love Elena and Damon and Stefan and Bonnie AND MEREDITH.

But since I won't be feeling the emotions of Elena as she goes through all these problems and interacts with the boyz I can't imagine what state of mind she would be in the end. So I can't say for certain who she would choose.   I'm so sorry. And BTW, do you mind if I use this answer as a blog post? I really should post and this is a question I get constantly.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

So, now I’ve posted and next I plan to start taking care of all my duties to the site that I’ve selfishly not been doing. I’m truly sorry about my absence from the site.

WOW!!! This would be soooooo good. I was even creating the scenes in my head while I was reading it. I just loved The Vampire Diaries series and now I'm heading on to read The Secret Circle ASAP. Your books are really great! Your writing is just wonderful and the way you lead the story is really good.

In my heart I will always keep YOUR Damon and Elena and of course the whole gang... For me Vampire Diaries are YOURS - always were and always will be...

Sincerely yours,
Anna (Moscow, Russia).

Aahh.. I would give my right arm to read that book.. :cry: Just reading that description got me all excited about the ideas, and then I remembered that it will never be. I can just imagine Damon having the time of his life having Elena exactly where he wants her, but not thinking about the consiquences of an angry Elena upon the influence breaking lol.

I am so totally right there with you Rachel. It makes me sad too that we will never get to ready anymore of the Vampire Diaries or Secret Circle by LJ Smith. What we can hope for is that she is allowed to finish Night World Strange Fate the way she wants to and that is not taken from her.

Or let's not forget the damage that it would do to Damon, when she discovers the truth, if she went back to Stefan. A cruel way to play with feelings that could have dire consequences; enough to fill a few books. *sigh* I guess that won't happen. I, too, could imagine it. I even went as far as wondering if Katherine was back and responsible; just from reading the idea.

I'm so glad to see you back and so glad that you provided more detail on your wonderful VD timeline! I'm guessing you were describing book 11 there. Don't think at all that you're selfish. I expected you not to be posting because you're writing three books! So to hear that we'll get an update on those as well makes me happy, too. Thanks for being so dedicated to what you do!

At least this made me smile and like others, I too saw the scenes played out in my mind's eye. Thanks for this nice and unique little insight into _YOUR_ TVD universe.

I am so sad that I wont get to read this conclusion. I could see it all and, for a second, I almost thought I was reading your newest book. It was quite sad that I wasnt :cry: I love your work and cant wait till I can read your books you are currently working on, Miss Smith. I am also glad to hear that you may have more free time to pick up on the duties of the site. So excited :D

It makes me sad to know that those books won't be written. I love TVD characters. I'm impartial about this because I do love all your books. So it is kind of obvious to say that I'm waiting for your new books like Strange Fate.

I'm not only waiting for Strange Fate. I'm waiting your new stories and characters.

Thank you for posting this entry. ;-)

Lisa dear,
Your ideas sound wonderful and I am sure it would have been a great book. I know there was lots to explore but perhaps I'll just consider the story suspended in time without any real "endgame". The characters are living without the desire to marry, grow old, etc. They will just exist and be happy. In the end, we all just want to be happy.
Thank you for sharing this with us. We greatly appreciate it. We are also glad to see you online. As much as we would all love the new books in our hands, we don't want you to overwork yourself.
Much Love

Lisa,

I had read over these comments by new readers being so excited about reading your books. I have been reading your books since you started putting them out, I am 26 now. Your books have gotten me through the best and worst times. I had someone say the other day "that book you're reading looks really old" and I responded that it is one of a series upon series that I have been reading for many years. You should be so proud that your literature is reaching generations. I hope to meet you one day and give you a hug for being my way out, providing my safe haven, and offering me a place that only a select few understand. I have read all of your books time after time, I already know the endings and the stories never change, but they, like many of the characters, never get old. Thank you for providing genertations past, present, and those to come a world where magic and the unknown exist. Remarkable.

Ok, please refrain from telling me I'm an idiot, but what is happening with the Vampire Diaries? I've been reading LJ Smith's books for only the last few years because I was too young when they were first published. This is the first time I've read her blog, what does it mean that she doesn't write them anymore? I'm slightly confused :/

I've done a bit more research now and I read about the ghost-writers. That's awful! I haven't bought or read the new Vampire Diaries books (I always loved Night World and Dark Visions more anyway) and now I don't plan to. Does this mean you can never finish the series yourself? How does something like this happen?

I think it is fantastic that you took the time to research what was going on when you had questions.

Since you are new to the site, I just want to invite you to join the Forum. There are lots of interesting discussions, fun games, and polls. There is also a whole section where Lisa stops by to answer fan questions whenever she has time. I hope to see you there. :-)

Lisa can't write anymore books for The Vampire Diaries or The Secret Circle series because of the contracts she signed back in the 90s. Both series are being continued by ghostwriters.

Lisa, those books would have been amazing, just from that email I was able to see what your plan had been, but that is, sadly, not going to happen and I appreciate you telling us this so that we can have peace of mind and heart. And Lisa, you writing and finishing your book, or playig with Victor, is very important. More important that the website(althoug h the website IS very important also). So, thank you again and I cannot wait for Strange Fate to be complete, good luck and happy writing!! Oh, and I am glad that you verified you were not dead, whoever thinks that does not know how seclusive writers can get apparently.

for starter I'm so sorry for not finishing the latest book of TVD. I couldn't bring my self to read it. the writing style is not bad, but it didn't feel like the old TVD. I was reading it half way, well less than halfway, and I decided to drop it. K now I just confess my sin, I must say I kind feel sad that Elena didn't end up with Stefan. I kind of knew some how, some day, she'll end up with Damon, but I still hold on to my little hope. *sign* Oh well, I'm glad to know how it kind of end. N L. J. Smith, Please take care of yourself. Take some rest and drink some tea ^-^ We all want you to be healthy so that you could continue writing amazing books!

I loved the series and was really disappointed when I found out that it would be ghost-written. Would have liked to see how the story above would have played out. You just know Elena would have given everybody a piece of her mind for keeping quiet about Stefan influencing her. I was recently really disappointed when I spotted a Night World book that I didn’t have only to realise it was just a new cover. Have read all of Miss Smith books and can't wait for more, especially Strange Fate!!! (When one exclamation mark just isn’t enough)

A rolled up newspaper? Made me laugh.
I once hit this jerk with a book - why didn't Elena use a book?
Anyway, I've always thought of Stefan and Elena in the stories, should be together and Damon and Bonnie were kinda cute together.

Damon and Elena are ment to be together! Maybe if somebody for once had loved Damon more than her bro than maybe he wouldn't have done all those horrible things he has done. Elena, Katherine, and even his own father loved Stefan more. Stefan got everything, he even forced Damon to turn because he didn't want to be alone. He is Selfish! I don't like Zachary, Bonnie should definetly be with Matt and Meredith and Alaric are perfect together. Stefan is meserable anyway he can brude alone or find someone else. Damon can protect her better, they are soulmates.
P.S. VAMPIRE DIARIES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU LISSA! :cry:

I think all Damon needed was for someone to love, adore and care for him but he missed out on the beautiful possibilites of love in his human life and vampire life, accept for Elena. Damon would be a different person, if only he was loved...
LJ I really am sorry they wont let you write more books, I read Deb Rossent's comment to you and I felt the love in her words...THANK YOU LJ!!!!

I have to say that showing you care for someone and loving someone is two different things. Yes, Damon cares for Bonnie, but he loves Elena. I really wish that you'd gotten to write your conclusion and as far as endgame, I can't see it turning out to be anything but Delena even if you wrote the plot you wanted.

The vampire diaires is the most beatiful story that i ever knew, and that´s becouse YOU wrote it. TVD wouldn´t be what it is if it wasn't for you. I think that it was very unfair what they did to you. like some comments say: It's like someone steal your baby. But L.J. Smith you are a awesome writter and you got to keep writting to show the world your amazing capacity to create this wonderful fantastic words. I'm sure that every fan from vampire diaries prefer that you had written those books, like me. Makes me so sad not be that way. But you are an inspiration for young writters in all the world and you have to keep doing what you love, and we love about you...
L. J. Smith You are the best!!
I adore you.. Deb

Thanks for your post Lisa, but you have not answered the question still. Who would Elena choose in the end. I just got the story of one of the books that you would have written, but no answer as to who ends up with whom in the last and final TVD book that you will never write, but have the answer in your head. Please provide the answer to this question for me: After all the twists and turns, in the last book of TVD that you, LJ Smith, would have written, Elena would pick.... Thanks.

When LJ writes, she gets caught up with the characters and their emotions. She appologized for this in the last paragraph, but unfortunately, unless she writes and undergoes the emotions with the character, she couldn't say exactly who ends up with who unless she got to write it all down.

Thank you for your response...it has cleared up some stuff...because obviously a lot of them think that it was Damon, however from the post...all I got was that there would have been a book about Stefan...so really no answer was given but a vague one...thank you for clarifying that to me.

I like the vampire diaries books, is das L.J smith can't finish them but really how many more books? Really, I'm getting bored with this series because is too long. Elena just decide whoever you want to be, to this point I don't care. I used to be Damon and Bonnie fan but now Damon is really stupid for still following Elena, she doesn't care for you Damon, stop acting like a lost puppy wirh her. That only reason I reason the ghoswriter book because Bonnie my favorite charecter is having a boyfriend and finally so I happy for Bonnie. But really keeping the series for too long, just let stupid Elena decide, I don't care who just choose.

It's so sad and depressing how TVD will end now. It was never the same since the ghostwriter replaced LJ. I just wish Damon and Elena have their moments again in the plot LJ have... :cry: Can L.J Smith write the TVD under different name but same story and plot(do i sound a bit desperate? :oops: ) I am longing for Damon-his character change since then)_ :sad:

They suck. Even the way she ends with one of the brothers was lousy. There was no work through after all that. Talk about ruining a good thing. I rated all of them low. And i say why I rated them so low. NO SPARK, NO PASSION. who cares if it is well written if it has nothing to hold me? Her relationships were not appropiate maybe in the book, but it looks even worse for that now. One girl did all that harm to one guy for no reason and just flops and makes a quick choice. She LOVED them both-she needed to work it out.

I really loved the way the Vampire Diaries started. I loved Damon's transformation from the dark to the grey. I love the chemistry between Elena and Damon. I loved the concept of Camelot and I hated it when the Ghost writers simply rubbed it off. Damon apologising, Damon playing nice is horrible.

Thank you for writing The Vampire Diaries books that you did actually write! I really love your Vampire Diaries books!! I definitely love them a lot more than the ghostwriters books but I have been reading the newer ones anyway because I don't want to give up the story but I really wish you could have continued. The newer books seem to be lacking something and I feel yours were fuller and the characters more complete. I agree with a previous comment that you showed such great chemistry between Damon & Elena. I am huge fan of Damon & Elena together and I hope that the TV Series at least gives them a chance this season. I am pretty addicted to The Vampire Diaries (which is because of the books you wrote) so I read a lot of D&E fanfiction. I wish we could hear more of your ideas. I also wish that they would hire you to write more on this series. Thank you for writing! You are an awesome writer!!

I was a fan of the first four Vampire Diaries books, but after that things just to go weird for me to continue reading. I still cannot watch the show, even if Ian is oh so fine.
However, I absolutely adore you're Dark Visions books, and Night World is just so toxic, Forbidden Game (all three books) were finished the night I bought them (together I might add), and The Secret Circle took no time at all for me to devour. I have yet to get my hands on Night of the Solstice, but as soon as I do it should not take any time for me to fall in love with it as well.
I fell in love with your writing, and am happy that I found Secret Vampire that day at a yard sale. You've earned a nice spot in my library.
P.S. Cannot wait for Strange Fate, and would love for you to still write you're own Vampire Diaries... TV murdered a great story from it's first episode.

dear ms. Smith, I was around 10 years old when I checked your book out at the school library. I am now 31 years old with children of my own. I understand you have had no control over the last 3 books. I have purchased every book excluding the last. I've been really disappointed with the hunters series. The outcome was predictable and discouraging. I feel that a childhood classic( my generation) has been botched. With that said at any time you can or could fix the wrong I'd gladly purchase your book. Continue to broaden minds of our youth as interesting stories keep young minds open. Thank you for feeding my inner youth!

I love The Vampire Diaries but I honestly don't like the ghostwriter. They should have let Ms. Smith finish writing the rest of the series. So what if Elena had a thing with Damon? It would have just made the story even more interesting. I'm a bit disappointed with how the ghostwriter wrote it.

You should sue them and get your awesome series back Lisa! You deserve it, we -as fans for years- deserve to read it written by you! And this ghostwriting thing? It's the most disrespectful, awful thing that can be done to an author, her work, and the fans of the books. This pisses me off so badly!

Due to the contract she signed, there unfortunately no way she can sue. With packaged book deals, they basically tell the author what they want them to write. This circumstance with LJ is extremely more terrible with TVD because she cannibalized an Adult Vampire Novel she had already been working on called "The Garden of Earthly Delights" to get the books completed in the timeline she was given. She didn't give them just ideas they had thrown around the table and relayed to her which is what happens in most packaged book deals.

It totally sucks that this happened to her and to The Vampire Diaries series...

....but on an only tangentially-re lated other hand, I kind of wonder what that Adult Vampire Novel would have been like too! ^-^ xDD

Du peu que je sais L.J Smith était delena mais il n'ont pas voulu le delena endgame et donc le livre fini stelena avec la mort de Damon triste et jamais vraiment heureux.
Comme la série ne suis pas toute le livre j'espère le delena endgame car cet amour ne peut avoir de fin tant de sacrifices mérite le bonheur éternel.

Mlle Smith n'écrit plus The Vampire Diaries, son dernier livre, c'était le retour: Midnight. En outre, elle n'a jamais choisi qui était endgame. Elle aimait Bonnie & Damon, Elena & Damon ainsi que Stefan et Elena. Elle a dit que si elle a appris à écrire des livres à travers les personnages et développer elle-même, elle n'aurait aucun moyen de savoir qui est le jeu final. J'espère que cette traduction est compréhensible!

The LAST sentence of this blog LJ says: "since I won't be feeling the emotions of Elena as she goes through all these problems and interacts with the boyz I can't imagine what state of mind she would be in the end. So I can't say for certain who she would choose. I'm so sorry."

I would've given up every other book I own (aside of the Vampire Diaries sets) to read L.J's TVD endings.As I was reading it, I was becoming really excited, thinking, "That sounds so amazing! I cant wa--oh." Those freaking meanies-- for Bonnie's sake, I won't say anything worse-- need to pull their heads out of their kiesters and realize that the GW books are HORRID, that it's ticked off ALL THE FANS, and they're so short/thin that, if compared to a brand of paper towels, the paper towels would win in cleaning up more messes. I'm so sorry for what happened to L.J. They'll rue the day they fired her, I will make sure to haunt them when I die. Know that you are my favorite author, I've read everything you've written, and am craving more. I swear, I have never enjoyed any book more than I do the novels you've written. They're creative, inspiring, beautiful- your work actually makes me CRY in the middle of reading it when something bad/startling happens. they are just THAT amazing. -Narumi

It's such a shame! I wish something sneaky could be done, like changing place and person names, or something, to allow L. J.'s Vampire Diaries books to continue being published elsewhere. If it were me...I probably would at least stubbornly keep writing them just for myself, even if I was never allowed to publish them. But I guess on the other hand that could easily get pretty tough, frustrating and saddening too though. :sad: L.J.'s way of writing is just so unique and refreshing and special, I will mourn the loss always of further Vampire Diaries books written in her style having been torn from my future. Thank you L.J. so much for all that you have written, and for all that you are still writing now and will write in time to come! !! :-) There is a special place in my heart for all of your writing, it is some of my absolute most favorite ever to read, and I will treasure it always.

I think that it should end with Bonnie finding a secret book that has a spell in it that can reverse everything, turn everyone back human including Damon and Stefan and bring everyone that died back to life, set things back to the way they were,but everyone still should remember the past, that would be a great ending

I stopped reading TVD books as soon as I found out they were being ghost writed. I was reading moonsong and thinking.. This isn't right. I searched up the latest news for TVD books and sure enough they were being ghost writed, I was devastated since you are one of my favourite authors and stopped reading them immediately.

Dearest,
It's not enough to say you are a genius at writing. You are the reason I myself enjoy writing stories similar to the concept of the vampire diaries. The first name that comes up in my mind when someone mentions tvd is L.J Smith. This book series has taken place in my heart and as a teenager I think Elena is an idol to most of us. She portrays the image of a warrior but simultaneously a stubborn young adult infatuated by the idea of love. And you, just creating this image of perfection,have literally inspired all of your fans.

Okay I just got done reading all the tvd books and I noticed some didnt have your name on them. How can u not write anymore of your own books? And are they going to write more to the series? The show is nothing like the books cause at first I started watching show thats why I started reading the books and at first didnt like them cause they are so different from the show but now I like the books better. So can u please explain how that works and why u cant write anymore for tvd? Its really sad this is my favorite book series beside twlight.

Dear Ms Smith,

It's been years since I last read one of your books, and I stopped following The Vampire Diaries series because I was becoming frustrated owing to the huge wait I had to endure, due to the Italian editions that split your books in two parts. I started thinking you were writing more books in this series just to get more income, since you completed the secret circle series which were't as much known. There are no words with which I could explain how much I adored reading the vampire diaries until Dark Reunion- which I consider your BEST book ever and that I worship with everything I have -, but from then on I had the feeling that the series was going nowhere, as if you didn't have the faintest idea of how the series was going to end, and for that I am very sad. Althogh I used to hope for a Damon/Bonnie endgame I guess I've lost all hopes right now. I consider the series, the really GOOD one, ending with Dark Reunion.

I'm seriously tired of having to witness ingenious books/series and TVD claiming to "esteem the books by creating visual and motion representations " but just changing the whole plot line. Watching people fall in love with the series without giving a second thought about the book is excruciatingly painful because the show is just a phony piece of crap (even though I love it too). It would be nice though to see a show or movie actually sticking with the books because I believe that's the reason people crave television. Books are so amazing and to just see these magnificent words transform into a motion picture gives me an elated feeling. I wish your ideas could have come to play because I'm so disappointed in Stefan's death and everything else going on in the show. You truly are an amazing author L.J. Smith.

I love your work and have done for the past 7 years, often obsessing over characters and storylines months after finishing them. I eagerly await more although I understand creativity can not be rushed and that you’re working as hard as you can and have recently been ill, so I’ll be patient.

I was so sad you were cut out of TVD, I don't understand how they could be so cruel and greedy as to basically steal your work. It just seems so wrong and quite frankly stupid, how could they not realize that your version, the true version would do far better than some imitation.
I will however confess that I read Aubrey's continuation. Although she is nowhere near the author you are, her plots and characters don't have any real...depth or substance. However I was recently thrilled to learn that you continued TVD as fanfiction although dismayed that it is not available in the UK , is there a way you could change this, perhaps put it on a platform that is more globally available?
