We are thrilled to join Her Royal Guardian again for this week’s Chapter by Chapter where we discuss Chapter 2 of Vampire Academy. It is a weekly discussion between fansites about the first VA book and the movie. If you haven’t read this book, beware as there might be SPOILERS.
During the plane ride, we can see a little more of Lissa’s abilities. I think the scene has to be put in the movie because it is a great way to slowly introduce Lissa’s abilities bit by bit. This scene also introduces the beginning of a relationship from Rose and Dimitri. Although not much, I really love the way a badass guardian like Dimitri, who has killed so many strigoi, comments on Rose’s braveness. Rose is someone who very much likes to stay in control. Making witty and sarcastic jokes is part of her personality and I believe that Mark Waters would include something that would makes us laugh when Rose and Lissa walks back into St Vladimir’s during Breakfast time, where everybody is watching.
Must have quotes:
1. “Doing that…protecting her like that–it was very brave. Stupid, but still brave. Why did you even try it?” – Dimitri
2. I glanced over at him, brushing my hair out of my face so I could look him levelly in the eye. “Because I’m her guardian.”
3. “She might be wild and disrespectful, but if she has potential–“ – Dimitri
