elena + damon’s shirts
Karen Gillan as Nebula (x)
“You are by far the greatest thing that ever happened to me in my 173-years on this earth. The fact that I get to die knowing that I was loved not just by anyone, by you, Elena Gilbert, is the epitome of a fulfilled life. It’s never gonna get any better than this. I peaked. I love you, Elena.”
Day 1: best character moment
There are at least two reasons why this moment is so important and why I chose it.
Firstly, let’s remember this: after Damon escaped, his switch was off for 52 years. During all this time, he never used this against him. He could blame Stefan, tell him he was a terrible brother, but no. Even with no emotions, Damon looked out for his brother.
Secondly, look at Elena’s reaction - and ours, too. This moment changes so much because we start wondering - what else did he go through? What other things about Damon are there that no one knows? What parts of his story does he hide just because he believes nobody cares or needs to know? Nobody knows everything about Damon.
