You know on other shows/movies we are introduced to the lonely, smart, beautiful, shy girl who can be so much more than she even knows. We fall in love with the girl that deserve everything good in life and we root for her. Then she changes, she grows, she starts to see what she can be, how great she is and in the end she truly gets everything she deserves. You know girls like Haley on OTH, Joey on Dawson’s Creek, Mia from The Princess Diaries (LOL, I mean isn’t Hayley supposed to be royality, LOLOL), Meredith from Greys, heck even Elena.
Then we have the girl who is the mean girl, a snob, popular, sometimes too much but she is also strong, hilarious, smart, beautiful and underneath it all, she is the girl that grows to become a powerful woman. She wins us over and sometimes she becomes a fan favorite. This girl is Katherine Pierce, Rebekah, Blair Waldorf from GG, Brooke Davis on OTH, Rachel on Friends, Christina from Greys, Mellie on Scandal, and our very own Caroline Forbes.
IMO, Hayley is neither of these girls. They just simply introduced her as a random girl, looking for her family and just happened to end up in MF. We all thought she would die or get what she wants or just leave in the end. She was supposed to be the girl that is “strong, a fighter, a dark girl”, they wanted us to be intrigued by her. We had a show with like 20 different characters for four years, we already knew and LOVED them, enter Hayley with not ONE redeeming quality and we are supposed to be intrigued and care?
The Elena girl, The Caroline girl, we are introduced to the good and the bad. We get to see them as good but also as bad. We get to see their strengths, their weakness, their sadness, their happiness. The good, the bad. ALL OF IT. It gives us something to root for, we can relate to them in one way or another. With Hayley we got to see a rude random girl who kills her friends and has basically no redeeming quality. We see nothing about Hayley that makes us root for her. Nothing. No one knew or understood her importance in TVD. When we don’t undertsand why a character is there, we do not start liking her, she just becomes annoying. Ask April Young.
They knew that Hayley was going to be on the spinoff, they should have given us something to root for, glimpses of this girl that is dark, a fighter but that has something underneath it that can make us like her. We were lead to believe that the pack meant something to Hayley, that the werewolves are tight and have a bond and in comes Hayley killing them all without EVER showing the viewers why the hell we should feel sorry for her or even care. Hayley is sad when the gang killed their friend, Tyler is all “he was a friend”, yet homegirl goes and betrays Tyler and those friends and doesn’t even blink. She came in and hurt the characters we already loved, when she told Tyler what she had done, there was no remorse, no sadness, no nothing, she was just fine with killing her friends after her “I need to find my family bla bla bla”.. Then BAM! Hayley is the lead on TO. No one understood a damn thing.
They knew they were going to keep Hayley no matter what and YET THEY DIDN’T GIVE US ANYTHING. No flashback to her life before, nothing we could have seen to go “aha, poor Hayley this and that happened”. Season 4 went by, they didn’t manage to show us anything that would make us love Hayley, but they wanted us to accept her on The Originals when we ALREADY hated her on TVD. Had this been series premiere and no one knew Hayley, sure, maybe people would have started to like her, but we ALREADY knew this character from before.
It’s almost the end of season 1 of TO and we haven’t yet seen anything that makes us root for her. We are supposed to go all “aaw, she is a princess, she is pregnat, aww poor Hayley”. Fans are not going to forget, it’s almost common knowledge with writers that they can basically ask a fan about a certain thing and you better believe they will remember! We rememeber what they gave us when it comes to Hayley, we never got one redeeming quality in her, we got a random girl who we all thought would leave and now we are supposed to accept her as this special girl. Yeah, no way in hell. If the writers wanted us to like her, they should have done something about it while she was still on TVD. Whatever they do with Hayley from now on, people are still going to dislike her because she will always seem fake. People will remember Hayley from TVD and people will never truly buy the “new Hayley”. Heck, Cami has a better change of being liked than Hayley. And when you have a female lead not many like, you won’t get a dedicated fanbase.
I'm going to smile, and my smile will sink down into your pupils
and heaven knows what it will become.

#because everytime i see this my breath catches in my throat#and my heart breaks just a little#the way he just stands there waiting (he has always been waiting)#he intends to be her last love after all#but it’s mostly the way her lips meet his#the two of them look like the type of people who have very soft lips#the kind that breaks you the moment tongue meets teeth#and hand brushes hands#and fingers scrape through hair#her lips meet his so gently like she doesn’t want to scare him away#like she knows she has all this power to break him (but she won’t - not this time)#and all he does is stand there and /take it/#until finally finally fiiiinally his lips sort of cups hers#and it’s earth-shattering; like the butterfly effect#the one where a butterfly flaps its wings and a hurricane forms on the other side of the planet#in this case her lips meet his and he feels his undead heart leave him#it’s not his anymore#it’s a paradox of everything he has been saying all along#it’s a rushing in his ears; a stuttering in his breath#it’s the sound he makes just as his eyes close#it - simply put - is a kiss#i have a lot of feelings about their first kiss ok i need a moment (via highgaarden)
