Notes: Part one of eight. For almost any given character you can think of, chances are that they're dead. It's that kind of story. Many of the chapters contain subject matter that deals heavily with death, grief, violence, and awful, awful behaviour. There are no morally upstanding characters in this bar.

I edit a lot. Even before I pass a story on to my beta readers, I edit, I rewrite, I cut. I'm a "less is more" kind of writer, so generally if I can cut it, I will do. And when writing a long story like Taken, inevitably there were times when I ran into plot problems, I didn't know what to do with characters, or I tried out various scenes that didn't quite work. Often I wrote snippets that I wanted to include later on, but the story shifted direction and they no longer fitted.

Hence: deleted scenes!

I cut and pasted these into a separate document as I was writing, because I hoped that I might be able to incorporate bits and pieces later on. Even if the scene doesn't work, there might be a couple of lines in there that I can recycle. And sometimes that happened; there are some gaps and lines lifted from these scenes that I added back into the main story. Sometimes it didn't.

What I was left with are a bunch of half-finished scenes and snippets. These are unedited, so they're not the best quality. Damon sounds suspiciously British in places. Some scenes consist of dialogue only because that's the first thing I write, and if I deleted it early on, I wouldn't have fleshed it out. But a few of them are quite complete.

Deleted scenes with commentary from chapters 1-23 below the cut. Elijah/Elena, Damon & Isobel, Klaus, Damon & Liz, Klaus/Katherine, Stefan/Caroline, Damon/Katherine and Damon/Andie. )
