I know how that being back here reminds you of how much we need you, how much I need you.

Well that's the problem Elena. Not all of us are okay with pretending. Some of us prefer to face our problems head on.

Let me summarize them for you. You're a dick.

Enzo: I heard you dropped out of school.
Caroline: And I heard that you were a lurker who was spying on my life.

I don't know what to say. I was actually just trying to think of what Bonnie would say.

If I'm going to singlehandedly take back our time, I'm gonna need a little more to go on.

Elena clearly has taken up residency on planet denial where football is more important than her boyfriend being swept up into oblivion.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
