So I turned off my emotions.
AU: Damon and Elena can’t refuse their daughter’s wishes for Christmas.
So I turned off my emotions. I left my friend to die. After that everything was fine
Damon, I love you. I love you. And these people tortured for 5 years. I don’t care what you did.
Everything was fine.
"Anna said that vampires don’t have to feel pain…that they can turn it off. They shut out their humanity […] Is that what you did?”
Damon Salvatore [5x09 The Cell]
Points for optimism, but unfortunately, Stefan doesn’t even know this place exists. (…) The first year I thought he’d rescue me. Didn’t. Once I escaped, there was no point in giving him more to feel guilty about, so I never told him what happened here.
I never told anyone.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it
#omg ok but in 1x19 they’re facing each other and now they’re facing away from each other??? #like in 1x19 they already had an understanding between them #even if they weren’t really friends #or hd a tentative still blooming friendship #they understood each other and met each other in the dark? #but now there are secrets between them and they keep stuff from each other #they have to elarn to adjust to their new status #of being together and loving each other and still being a team #still trusting that the other one won’t go running for the hills when the other has a problem that might affect the other #IDK IF THIS WAS INTENTIONAL BUT LORD IF IT WAS I’M SLOW CLAPPING THE WRITERS (via qilbert)
morallydubiousprincess: #before the understanding was so instinctual and unnamed #but now that they’re together the issues have built #they hide and pretend and smile to keep up an illusion #but they can’t lie anymore #and in a dark place they find an honesty that hasn’t been there for a long time #they found each other in the darkness and now they’re finding the truth again #so i stayed in the darkness with you
That’s it. That’s the show.
I promise you…
