There’s something sweet and almost kind
but he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined.
And now he’s dear and so I’m sure I wonder why I didn’t see it there before.
He’s no prince charming but
there’s something in him that I simply didn’t see.
Damon: I just have to say it once. You just need to hear it. I love you, Elena.
And it’s because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you and why you can’t know this.
I don’t deserve you but my brother does. God, I wish you didn’t have to forget this. But you do.
Damon: I can’t lose you.
Elena: You won’t.
Damon: I love you. You should know that.
Elena: I do.
Damon: You should have met me in 1864. You would have liked me.
Elena: I like you now. Just the way you are.
Damon and Elena, season 2.
It’s not an easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task and because of my prejudices I failed you. Im haunted by how things might have played out differently if I’d been more willing to hear your side of things. For me it’s the end. For a chance for you to grow old and do something better with your child. For that child that I give you my ring. I don’t ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this. Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same, as I’ve always loved you and always will.

I will always choose you.
The girl who believes in fairy tales.
I’m young. I won’t always be able to relax and be a kid, but I’ll always be able to love, so I’m gonna get out there and liven up this world, leave my mark, make a difference because in five years I might want to rewind but I can’t. I’ll make mistakes and not care and make memories that will never fade. I’ll live it up and live it crazy. I’m only young once, so I am gonna do this right.
Oh I need you to know today,
I’ll wait for you always,
Cause when I find you, I’ll find me.
