Well, I did not entirely plan to re-read this but seeing that I had no idea what I was even talking about in the "reaction" from 2013 plus that it's only three pages long, re-read it was.
And I have to say that I still agree with myself (Quite shocking, I know). Overall it is a fun, quick read but I still have a little issue with it.
So, that next time I remember what I actually meant: (view spoiler)[So, I always thought that Dimitri would be very... I don't know... professional? That ...more
Dimitri. Dimitri. Dimitri. Dimitri. Dimitri. Dimitri. Dimitri.
Take a picture. My rare fangirl state only appears once every Dimitri sighting, and then it's gone and I'm back to pretending to be above this kind of behavior.
Dimitri fans? What are you waiting for? Here's the link to the story.
Non-Dimitri fans? I'm putting you in time out with my special friend Ash (team Javier, REALLY?).
"Me? I didn't believe in hopeless."
- Dimitri Belikov
“She might be unarmed, but Rose Hathaway was in possession of many weapons.”
W-what?? Really? That's all we get :( ? That was the biggest damn tease EVER!!! It's Dimitri's POV for crying out loud and all we get is 3 measly pages! B-b-but its Dimitri!!! I love him and that was just not enough. I'm sorry, I just needed MORE. Okay... okay fine, it was really cute while it lasted. The Vampire Academy series IS and forever will be M ...more
I don't think I need to point out what didn't work our for me. -_-
And where the hell did this insta attraction for a teen appear?
Oh, am I supposed to review this short with something than utter fawning? I'll tone down the adulation but overall: it's a nice, fun short. Rose is being her kick-ass self. Oh, and it's in Dimitri's perspective!! Some slaying action going on.
P.S If anybody wants to know where I read t ...more
Regarding the series as a whole:
This is without a doubt one of my favorite YA Fantasy series.
I do love Richelle Mead, her series Succubus Blues is also one of my favorite UF series ever.
What you'll find in this series:
Entertainment from beginning to end. Action, emotion, badassery, growth, adventure, VAMPIRES, fighters, excitement, suspense, intrigue, ...more
I really don't like all these new trends that we need to know what the man of our lovely duet thought when he first saw the girl (aka Edward from Twilight, Four from Divergence or Grey from 50 shades - bliah ...more
1.1 in the Vampire Academy series
Remember when Rose and Dimitri first met in the first installment of Vampire Academy? Remember how awesome that was? No, well how about reading this from Dimitri’s POV? Doesn’t that sound amazing? Guess what! It was amazing! So amazing! Dimitri Belikov finally gets his own POV in something written by the lovely, Richelle Mead. It was literally the best thing to read if you’re waiting for The Fiery Heart and need somethin...more
it's been a long time since we've last seen each other. I must say that I've missed you and our reconciliation has been bittersweet. It's been too short. As always you've been handsome, mysterious, stoic and awesome.
I might have to visit the Vampire Academy to see you once again.
See you soon,
When my cousin sent me the link I was like;
Well let's begin, shall we?
As we all know, all the VA addicts were wating for this moment to eventually come (and it came!)
Knowing what Dimitri was thinking while meeting Rose Hathaway was amazing.....
It seemed like he already knew that it'd definitely be some attraction between the both of them...and I think that Rose sparked almost immediately the light in his heart,soul and thoughts....
He saw Rose as a tee ...more
"I also don’t plan on ever underestimating you again, wild girl, I thought, momentarily locking eyes with her. And I’ll make sure no one else ever underestimates you either."If you haven't experienced this series in a while, th ...more

Beside, It didn't FEEL like Dimitri, I had great expectations and I'm beyond disappointed
At first I gave it 3 stars for the sake of being Dimitri's POV but truth is it only deserve 2 , barely ...more
"Alas, despite all the requests, I'm afraid there will be no books or series written from his POV. This is as close as we get to his mysterious mind!" -Richelle Mead
Richelle Mead WROTE a scene in DIMITRI'S POV?!!!
We need to spread the love and rate The Meeting (Dimitri's POV) by Richelle Mead! "If it receives loads of good rating may be Publishers will know how badly people want it and it may convince Richelle to write a book in Dimitri’s ...more
Seriously! Richelle why didn't you just alternate the POVs of the series between Dimitri & Rose *sigh*.
Having the opportunity to be inside Dimitri's mind & seeing the meeting through his eyes was so refreshing. He was instantly attracted to Rose. Its truly beautiful & amazing to see how Dimitri perceived her ahhh! ASDFGHJKL.
I loved it! And if you're a huge fan of the series as am I, this is a must read. Thank you Richelle for this little treat! ...more
It shows us, again, Rose's determination to protect Lissa, as well as Dimitri's first impressions of Rose.
"I didn’t want this brave, beautiful, and wild girl to be my enemy. I wanted her as…what? I wasn’t sure ... There was too much potential here. This girl could be unstoppable if her talents were properly cultivated. I wanted to help her."
And sets up their relationship brillia ...more
I turned instantly at the sound of my name, shooting a glare at the guardian approaching in the darkness. What was he thinking? Everyone out here tonight knew how essential secrecy was. It didn’t matter that he was young and simply excited about his first big mission. We had no room for errors, not when this was the only break we’d had in over a year. Realizing his mistake, he grew apologetic, though not nearly enough.
Nice short from Dimitri's POV but it didn't really pull me in fully. ...more
This was written in celebration for Dimitri's victory in the YA Crush Tournament and I'm so glad Richelle M. gave us this. Dimitri has been so in control always, but the first time he saw Rose he was impressed by her wild spirit. Thanks dear R.
This scene from Dimitri's POV was rather disappointing. It was too short(sadly) and revealed very little about him. Just the fact that Rose had his attention from the very beginning. And the scene also made him seem more... well, human. At least his mind has less self-control than his general attitude.
Ummm...well if it has Dimitri, then the word "disappointing" is just not in the picture. I absolutely loved going back into the VA world, and this time in Dimitri's head. Even though, it is a short snippet, it left me wanting to go back and re-reading the series. Richelle Mead really did an outstanding job with this series...and DIMITRI! *happy sigh*
A life-long reader, Richelle has always loved mythology and folklore. When she can actually tear herself away f ...more
