You know, looking at the stars, listening to the universe laugh at me.
don’t know if it’s been mentioned before but i found bonnie’s “does it hurt?” so endearing
because this brave young woman has made it her business not to show any sort of weakness and deal with every bad thing happening to her by speeding head on, regardless of her own welfare
and for once she’s really, really scared and she’s allowed to verbalize it
it’s only then that bonnie truly accepts her “death”
and damon’s response is equally endearing, because he’s just as sealed off as bonnie when it comes to emotions and he doesn’t let any vulnerabilities show either
but this time he’s scared too and he’s allowed to verbalize it
basically, what i’m saying is that they can be vulnerable and honest with each other in this last moment
and that to me counts more than 5 seasons of interaction because it allows these characters to be human
AU Future Canon: Damon will do anything to get his brother back. And Bonnie will follow him to the end of the line.
