“Stefan told me about the break-up”
#it’s like someone punched him directly in his feels#there’s this brief moment where he’s honestly a little confused#and he doesn’t even know if he CAN smile or SHOULD smile because this has never happened#no one’s ever chosen him before#no one’s ever picked him#and she picked him#this love of his un-life#this woman that has prompted him to change for the better#this woman that has made him want to be ground#to stay in one spot#to mend the fences with his brother#this woman that has helped him let go of all the pain and degradation and poor choices of his past#she’s choosing him#he still remembers her saying ‘it will always be stefan’#he repeats it to himself every time they close#when they were at the party and she fed and danced he reminded himself that it was stefan#when she took his hand after he saved her he reminded himself ‘it’s stefan not you’#and here for the first time in his 180+ years there is someone loving him back#there’s something loving him enough to choose HIM#an he doesn’t even know how to react because it’s never happened#and it scares him in that last frame#because what does he do now#how is he supposed to handle this this responsibility#the weight of another person wanting HIM#loving HIM as much he loves them#it’s everything he always wanted and never thought he’d have#and he’s terrified of believing it’s true
the line between selfishness and selflessness
When people see good, they expect good. And I don’t want to have to live up to peoples’ expectations.

Elena being a Damon fangirl vol. 3
#i truly feel that damon and elijah would be amazing at writing a vampire’s guide to living in many centuries #like elijah could take care of comportment and hair stylings #1. eat with a fork and knife. if you must savage a human’s neck. be sure to carry a handkerchief. or three. #2. good conditioner will ever serve you well in the un-life. never shirk a visit to the barber. #3. a three-piece suit will never go amiss. dressing like a savage is insulting to your kind. #like elijah’s will be the gentleman’s quarterly version and damon’s will be for the common folk #damon: 1. don’t get carried away by fads. those photos will come to haunt you. #2. black leather is your friend. in fact. wardrobes composed entirely of black are your friend. #3. cleanliness is next to godliness. if you get blood on the rug - frankly kill yourself. god. #they will jointly-oversee the vampire guide to good vocabulary #1. elijah: contractions are lazy and displeasing to the ear. CANNOT. not can’t. WAS NOT. not wasn’t. or be silent. #2. damon and elijah: the only exception is the use of acronyms in the 21st century. such as. O.M.F.G. and B.T.W. #it really is a hard knock life out there for a psychopath with long teeth #brought to you by the authors of The Gentleman Vampire’s Compendium of Good and Rightful Un-Living #elijah #damon salvatore is king of hoodrats #faves
