DELENA RE-WATCH MEME
⇨ 1/5 colors
Because of the life that I lead, I just think that it’s better to not be with someone that I could really care about
Cockiness masking fear; how transparent.
Damon in Season 5 Appreciation Week
Day 2 - best boyfriend! Damon moment
Day 2 - best boyfriend moment
Okay, I cheated and picked two. You can tell why.
Most of his life - vampire life, anyway - Damon lived in the past. His Katherine past. He never stopped to think what would happen when he freed her. He never considered any alternatives.
But with Elena, Damon finally discovers the idea of future - looking out for her, saving her life, seeing her face the eternity and realizing that at least in some way, she sees him in her future.
Interestingly, I don’t quite believe either of the things he says. I don’t think he was certain of having a future with Elena in 5x03, as determined as he was to try. And he definitely didn’t fall for her at first sight, intriguing as she was. But the possibility of having a future, of wanting to have a future? That’s new. That’s a huge step for Damon. I’m proud of him.
