Good Wife Boss on Vamp Diaries Fanfic Shout- Out -- Plus: The Other Shows They Almost Used

Good Wife Vampire Diaries FanficAre the Good Wife writers closet Delena ‘shippers?

On Sunday’s episode of the CBS drama, Kalinda uncovered some lusty Vampire Diaries fan fiction originating from her boss’ IP address and email.

So how did the surprise crossover come about?

“We obviously wanted something that seemed ludicrous and out-of-character for Diane to be doing,” Good Wife executive producer Robert King tells EW.com.

Mission accomplished.

However, Diane’s confused look as Kalinda read a snippet of the softcore vamp porn — “When Damon’s fangs dug into her neck, her whole body pulsed with desire. She needed him. She needed him bad.” — foreshadowed a second twist: She didn’t write it; the housekeeper did.

The CW series was an obvious choice because “we know [Vampire Diaries EP] Kevin Williamson through Writers Guild things, and we think he’s wonderful,” said King. “And we also thought he’d be fine with a reference to the show’s fan fiction.”

But before settling on the bloodsucking drama, King notes that they also contemplated “Sons of Anarchy fan fiction and incestuous fan fiction for Supernatural,” also known as Wincest.

What did you think of the scene of the quasi-Good Wife/Vampire Diaries crossover?

  1. That part was just classic….especially Diane saying she’s never heard of it lol. Absolutely love the levity this show has at times!

  2. Dani says:

    deep down i think diane knew exactly what that was and just blamed the housekeeper out of embarrassment. come on be honest now, diane!

    • Rrrrrr says:

      Yes! Can’t you just imagine Diane in front of her TV every Thursday night waiting for it to come on

    • Can I just say, this weblog is what got me by way of the day right now. Each time I read it, I just get more and far more excited about whats next. Really refreshing blog and quite refreshing suggestions. Im glad that I came across this when I did. I enjoy what youve got to say and also the way you say it.

  3. Rob says:

    The best part of the is episode was Morena Baccarin. Lawyer: “What were you doing in the Rose Room?” MB: “Anal” followed by “Well he killed his first wife.” Love it!

  4. Dick Whitman says:

    I was rolling when this happened. Well played, RK.

  5. Elle says:

    *”King notes that they also contemplated “…incestuous fan fiction for Supernatural,” also known as Wincest.”* I can not lie, that would have been awesome.

  6. Liz says:

    OH MY GOD!!!! LOL!!!!

  7. TVDIVA says:

    Wincest would have been hilarious.

  8. vicki says:

    I missed both intended twist. I thought it lead the sexually arousing snippet led to Diane’s proposal of marriage.

  9. Martin says:

    Would of been ever better if Diane had written it.

    Also, agreed. Morena Baccarin had the best lines of the night.

    Lastly, about that scene where Amanda Peets character leaves Wills, she did leave cos she realised Will was still in love with Alicia, right?.
    That’s what that look was about when she was walking out, right?.

    • Kim says:

      That’s how I interpreted Amanda Peet’s character leaving Will. It was BS that a guy from her past came back into her life.

  10. Amy says:

    I loved the fanfic moment, and huge kodus to Christine Baranski for keeping a straight face (or rather an awesome confused face) during the exchange. I’m sure there had to be several takes to get through the whole “ludicrous” conversation for both Kalinda and Diane. Great stuff!

  11. Wincest would have been awesome! LOL

  12. TV Gord says:

    Sons of Anarchy wouldn’t have worked as well, because I think someone who would be involved with Kurt McVeigh might actually watch that show. The Vampire Diaries comes out of nowhere, and the ludicrous of her watching that show made for a better scene (although after reading this story and the comments above, I’m starting to see it now)! :-D

  13. Martoukian says:

    You can tell times have changed–in the past, CBS would’ve demanded the fanfic be from a CBS show.

    • Dizzle says:

      CBS & The CW are part of the same company (or CBS own The CW, I’m not sure how it all works) – Ringer was initially developed at CBS before being punted over to The CW.

  14. Eric says:

    The CW is owned (well partially) by CBS, so its still in the family

  15. I was rolling over that… that whole scene was great xD. Also, never mention Wincest again please, thank.

  16. Catherine says:

    Kalinda: Elena and Damon have sex in the end in a pickup. Diane: I’m happy for them. LOL.

  17. bend22 says:

    Diane said she would not feel “compelled” (etc)… Like “compelled” by a vampire?
    Haha. I think she lied, she really wrote that fanfic.
    L.
    O.
    L.

  18. Ella says:

    OMG, I WISH they had gone with Supernatural!!! But Destiel, not Wincest…

  19. Hurrah! After all I got a webpage from where I know how
    to truly obtain useful information regarding my study and knowledge.
