Hashtag, you're welcome. Are hashtags still a thing? It's been three years.


Are we friends? I know why you wanted to do this in a letter. So you could desiccate in peace imagining whatever reaction you wanted. Me reading it and thinking “huh, I’m really gonna miss him.” Well too bad. That’s not my reaction. This is. I'm not okay with this decision. I’m not okay with you choosing yourself. And I’m not okay with never seeing you, my best friend, ever again. This hurts me. This hurts.

Bonnie [to Damon]

Stefan: If there is even a fraction of you that cares about me, do not walk out that door.
Damon: Save a bottle of that good bourbon for me, brother. We’re gonna need to sort all this out in about sixty years.

I’m not a good brother when I’m not with Elena and when I’m not a good brother people get hurt.


Damon: Look, I’m selfish, narcissistic, prone to unnecessary bouts of violence...
Rayna: Tell me again why I shouldn’t be killing you.

Rayna: You want me to go against my very nature because he’s your family?
Damon: Pretty much.

Rayna: What’s next? It puts the lotion in the basket?
Damon: It wouldn’t have to if it just stayed dead.

Doubtful. We only go to New Orleans for crappy booze and Klaus blood.


Stefan: So, how are Elijah and, uh, whoever else you brought back from the dead?
Klaus: Oh, you know the Mikaelsons. Never a dull moment.

So she carried two lives in her womb. She gave birth to them. And now she plans to turn those cooing little faces over to Alaric without so much as a hiccup of hesitation. You’re right. That sounds like the Caroline I remember.

Klaus [to Stefan]

Caroline: One, these babies aren’t mine. They’re Ric’s.
Klaus: Yes, that’s been made abundantly clear to me by your boyfriend.
Caroline: Two, I didn’t call you. I called Stefan. Yes, my boyfriend. Who is currently running for his life while I sit here playing worst case scenario. Except these babies, who aren’t mine, won’t stop crying, and now this entire diner hates me, so if you could stop gloating in the face of my misery, that would be very much appreciated.

Once whatever crap Enzo gave you is out of your system and magic works on you again I’m going to give you my blood and heal you. Okay? But in the meantime, there’s something Iw ant you to know. You are a terrible friend, you know that? Do you have any idea what I’d have to go through if you’d died today? Years of guilt. Crippling, self-loathing guilt. Not to mention the resentment I’d feel if I was forced to break in a new drinking buddy. You’re not supposed to die for me, Bon. Neither is my brother. But no matter what I say or how hard I drill it into your skulls, you’re not gonna stop trying, which is why I have to take myself out of the equation. It all ends tomorrow. You’ll never have to worry about me again.


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.
