pEOPLE HATING ON CHARACTERS FOR BEING REALISTICALLY EMOTIONAL IN TRAUMATIZING SITUATIONS
Srsly though, the Katherine thing is super disturbing. She just got marked as the worst sinner in the narrative. Her cardinal sin? Always prioritizing herself.
But Elena and her clothing choices give me a lot of feelings because of stuff like this. She has a remarkably similar pattern, especially going into s4 and onwards, where in moments where she feels more confidence or comfort in herself (or tries her best to be and construct herself that way), she tends to wear more dresses or shorts or brighter colours, but after something traumatic she tends to dress in more jeans and cardigans and more practical clothing. You could see it in how she was dressing and how it shifted into season 4 after she found out about the sire bond as well as after she was forced to turn her humanity back on. So far s5 has had her in pretty bright colours, lots of shorts and patterned dresses, so seeing her in a loose fit and muted cardigan in 5x16 shows she’s pretty clearly traumatized by the whole possession thing. It’s very similar to what she was wearing when the Salvatores held her captive in 4x21, which is pretty distressing.
i never thought i would be saying this, but i can’t stop thinking about blood;
Klaus bringing out the worst in Stefan.
Enzo bringing out the worst in Damon.
People aren’t defined by their relationships, the whole point is being true to yourself.

Meh. It’s a canon ship. I don’t particularly like or ship it, but there are times I’ve found their dynamic pretty interesting (mainly in early-mid s3) and I don’t hate it as a ship. I’m generally kind of neutral on it. I’m mainly here for Elena’s cute faces tbh.
"You are literally the best person I’ve ever known. And for me to think that I’d change you gives me way too much credit and you not nearly enough. You are the best influence on me. I need you. You are the good. And I need a little good in my life. Cause without it there’s an awful lot of darkness."
