Excellent...what do you do when your only reason for living is gone? How many people in the history of the world have had to face that...from wars, accidents, illnesses...and yet I wouldn't give up my humanity to stop the pain...time does NOT heal all wounds! You grow scar tissue...it's always there with you but you keep going...

This chapter got to me...the Deremy scenes were beautiful and faithful to my perception of how Damon would take care of Jeremy if something did happen to Elena...

This is just beautiful but so sad...I don't know if you're going to have Damon die and be with her or do like books where she comes back and becomes a guardian...I'm just hoping they aren't forever apart for eternity...

OMG again..you're trying to kill us? (Just kidding...sort of)
Rip a person's heart out much? Praying this is going to work out...somehow!
Awesome fiction as are all of your stories but I do not want Elena nor Damon nor Stefan dead-dead! My HEA is Delena! Stefan finds peace and maybe love (always wanted a Katherine-Stefan endgame I think Katherine actually (or close to it!).
I fear most Pleck is going to kill Damon before series ends. Sacrifice himself to save 1. Elena. 2, Stefan. 3. Both? But that's where it seems to be going. Season 5 epi 99... Waiting for epi #100. Katherine may or may not die...lots of reminiscing...e just gotta wait to see where the M-F writers take us! But your stories are good as gold! ;)

Indelible! If NLT TVD hired some off you guys ( meaning you a very rare few others) to write their shift!

Oh, Goldnox… I’m here! Sorry I suck so bad, lmao. I’m gonna do better I promise!
"Damn, you're pissy today." –I thought that was her every day… sorry Elena gets on my nerves sometimes. Gonna keep that to myself though, at the point in your story she hasn’t gotten too bad yet. ;)
“I pay closer attention to the shapes that are transforming above me, hoping that if I can find something normal in them I won't be stuck in the only psychiatric hospital that's run by a sociopathic vampire.” –I love how she knows he would make her better no matter what she does. It’s his life mission to make sure she is ok.
“He's silent for a moment and I bet he's wondering if he can find me a strait jacket in black.” –Ha! Cuz he can’t have her wearing white! Damon wouldn’t stand for that…
“My stomach rolls when I wonder if he dug the hole. Please, God, please say he didn't. I'd do anything to know that he compelled someone else to make room in the earth for my body. I can't fathom what that would do to him, to stand there for hours with a shovel, to hear the sound of dirt hitting my skin or maybe my coffin, sealing me away. Forever.” –Oh shit, this is deep. Ugh dammit, I hate angst but you write it so beautifully.
“My hand covers my mouth, my shoulders shaking because I already know. He'd never let anyone else be the last to see me, not if he had the choice. He'd want my resting place to be perfect, and he'd never trust anyone to do it but himself.” –Dammit it’s getting deeper!
"You shouldn't be here," he grits out. "I wasn't worth it. None of us were. Not if you're..." He's fully trembling now, the grief and rage he's been bottling on the verge of exploding out of him and this is killing me. "You're dead, Elena. And I'll never forgive you for this." –Fuck, that’s harsh. Damon saying he’ll never forgive her? That’s probably the worst punishment he could give her, to be honest.
“Instead, he merely whispers, "I miss you." –Wow, what a way to end the chapter. I know that it’s not going to be the most difficult chapter by a long shot, but seeing Damon hold all his emotions inside and not show anything at all… That’s hard. Plus we all know that he’s the most sensitive of all… *sobbing*
Great chapter, I am looking forward to the next. See, slowly but surely I’m making my way through them!

So, I'm a terrible friend and said that I would read as you wrote and didn't do it. I feel like I'm being pulled in 50 different directions lately and time is not my friend. But, I want to try and catch up now that I'm on my Christmas break. Here goes...
Elena can be so naive sometimes. Did she really think that killing herself would be what was best for everyone? Granted, it saved everyone she loved, but killed them a little bit at the same time. I don't think she realizes just how much that she is the glue that holds everyone together.
Damon is going to break my heart, I can just tell. He's being strong for everyone else and not able to deal with his own grief because no one else will let him. Jeremy, though, I can tell he's going to be a great character. A little flawed, but becoming strong... just like Damon. And he's going to be Damon's rock I think.
Fuckin Stefan, thinking only of himself yet again. I love that you share my severe dislike of him. I hate that I love Paul so much, but he has to play this whiny-ass self-absorbed character. (Though, he does an amazing job at it) Stefan is just ridiculous. If he doesn't man up I don't know how Damon will deal with him.
Sorry that this has been so long coming. I'm going to TRY to do a chapter a day until I can catch up. I hope...

First, I'm sorry it has taken me forever to read and review this. The huge, dark cloud hanging over my house won't go away and I've just been incapable of putting words together that make sense.
I actually read this twice before sitting down to review. As always you have brilliantly written a bittersweet, heartbreaking, I'm crying for hours chapter. I spend hours everyday wanting to be you when I grow up. I loved the ending of this chapter. Damon and Elena, finally happy together, going off to the great beyond in hopes of being able to make love (I would have knocked it out on the porch just in case, but that's me) and just happy to see and touch and hear each other.
But...if I'd been Elena, I would've left Damon standing on that porch all alone and found my peace without him. Justifiably, he was angry with her and I gasped along with Elena when he compared her to Katherine, because, he would see the two as being similar and feel betrayed because of it. I totally get that. And, yes, Damon is completely impulsive and, at this point, angry and sad that Elena has been alone all this time when he thought otherwise. I get that.
But, I thought is tirade was so...mean. Here's this 18 year-old girl who has spent 80 years staying with this man because of her overwhelming love for him and probably would have spent eternity doing so and he shows up so hateful towards her. As mentioned above, I get the feeling of betrayal, but dredging up the past, berating her for dying, bringing her to a sobbing mess who could only feel unloved...he was awful and mean and I would've turned and walked through that door without him after smacking his face. I know you had to be a complete puddle of sobbing goo by the time you finished writing this.
(I can't believe I'm going to say this). I didn't like their reconciliation. Damon's turn around seemed too sudden. I understand the catalyst for him to stop acting like an ass was her stating she didn't deserve to be loved, but his turn around didn't have a sense of transition. He tells her he's mad at her and then he's back to loving, flirty Damon. Certainly, once she declared she felt he didn't love her anymore he needed to get over his anger and wake up to the fact he was verbally destroying the woman he loved. And, I understand letting go of your anger, but he was really, really angry and then he was pouty and charming and so Damon. For me, it would have rang more true if he'd settled down, perhaps held on to the anger in a way that the reader could still sense it, but have his love for Elena finally break through his anger. I think the two feelings could have coexisted for a bit before he forgave her and they moved on.
You know I adored this brave, beautiful story, which in my book is totally brilliant. No one else could have written this and made the reader love it. Thank you for writing a story that shows how love transcends death and that when all else fails we have hope that we'll be together with our loved ones.
