Take a picture of my brother and me.
#okay so this is a sad scene#this is a really sad scene#because elena is hoping despite herself that stefan loves her enough to listen#that stefan will put aside whatever it is he’s doing with klaus and follow her home#that stefan loves her enough to not only risk damon’s life by returning but also to give up the blood blood blood blood blood#and stefan doesn’t love her that much#he really doesn’t#not anymore#but just because elena is hopeful that doesn’t mean she’s naive#she has a syringe of vervain in her left hand and she’s getting ready to stab him in the back and DRAG him back into her life#look at the resolve on her face in the bottom right gif#look at elena gilbert getting ready to force stefan to come home with her#which isn’t that different from what klaus did to him. not really.#but elena doesn’t feel guilty for this#she doesn’t feel guilty because she needs him and that’s not her fault#he DID that to her#he dropped into her life and made her happy to be alive and now she can’t breathe without him#i can’t lose the way i feel about you#otp: you’re the one who saved me#(so now i will return the favor. whether you like it or not.) via ruthseriouslydothis
I had a plan. I wanted to change who I was. Give my life to someone new. Someone without the past. Without the pain. Someone alive.

I love her, Damon. So do I.
