My Favorite TVD Moments
I have like a bajillion. Hahaha there are little moments that make me laugh every time and ones that make me cry every time. I'm going to try suuuuuper hard to just list the moments that I felt were really powerful or influential and ones that really stuck with me. Since I'm going to try to go really in depth with these scenes, I'm probably only going to post like once a week. The moments won't be in any ranking, just in order of what popped into my mind! :)
Season 2, Episode 8; Damon tells Elena he loves her for the first time.
Well, for one, I love Delena, so obviously this is going to be a moment I love. Damon tells Elena he loves her. And then he compels her to forget. What the hell, right? As frustrated as I was, I was still able to recognize how important and beautiful that moment was. Damon had reached a breaking point in his feelings for Elena. He felt that there was never going to even be a possibility of them together, he knew it, and he accepted it. He was fully prepared to live the rest of his existence on the sidelines, watching his brother with the girl of his dreams. However, he needed just one thing in return. He needed five seconds of pure happiness where he was with the girl he loved and she knew exactly how much he loved her. He got straight to the point, he told her he loved her and also that he didn't expect her to feel the same. He knows that real love, the love he feels for her, isn't selfish or manipulative or deceptive. And it's because of that that he thinks taking her for himself is the wrong thing. He bashes himself, telling her that he doesn't deserve her. He holds her in such high esteem and himself as the lowest of the lows. He considers his brother deserving of her, knowing that at heart Stefan is a good person and will take care of Elena until the day he dies. He wishes more than anything that he didn't have to do what he does next: making her forget one of the most emotional raw moments of his life. He does it anyway, knowing that her knowledge of his love for will only make her life more complicated and confusing. He kisses her forehead in an act of pure love and adoration, still not taking advantage of her even though he knows she won't remember this tomorrow. A single tear falls from his eye with the sinking realization that this is really happening, that he finally found someone that cares for him deeply and that he loves in return, only to let her go. The song playing in the background makes the moment ironic, the singer repeatedly saying the words, "I was wrong". I took not as Damon was wrong to compel Elena, but that he was wrong about not deserving her. In that moment he proved himself wrong. He calls it the most selfish act of his life when in reality, it's one of the biggest unselfish acts he's ever committed. He put her before himself, not for the first time, not for the last time. And in doing that, he proved that he really does deserve her.
Season 4, Episode 10; Elena tells Damon she loves him for the first time.
What a coincidence that these are the first two that popped into my mind, huh? Yeah right. At first I really really hated that this moment happened over the phone. Like the whole idea of telling someone you love them for the first time NOT in person just confuses the heck out of me. It's just so completely unromantic and sucky. Ew. Anyway, after I thought about it for a while, I THINK I may have figured out why it was written that way. (Emphasis on THINK, because who really knows what the heck those people are thinking half the time?) Remember that horrible little moment when Elena CALLED Damon to tell him she chose Stefan once again?(I'm really going to try not to rant about that one right now.) It was one of the lowest moments in Damon and Elena's relationship in my opinion, and it had me hating Elena for quite a while. Anyway, I think it was kinda brilliant and sneaky of the writers to parallel that moment a dozen episodes later with one of the highest points in Elena and Damon's relationship that just happened to occur over the phone. Coincidence? I. Think. Not. I loved the way they psyched us out a first when Damon didn't respond in a positive way to her declaration of love at first. But when he uttered those simple yet beautiful words, "Come to me.", I died in a good way a little. In that moment, the smile on his face is ridiculously amazing and beautiful and simply the best; that is, until five seconds later. He takes a moment, looks up into the night sky filled with breathtaking stars and just...I don't even think there's a good enough word for the look on his face. I just feel like in that moment he really tells himself that it's worth it. That all the crap things that have happened to him, all the times he came in second place, all the times he was ever wronged, they were all okay because SHE LOVED HIM. The look on his face in that scene is still enough to give me chills and guys, it's probably my favorite five minutes of the show EVER. But my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE THOUGHT on this scene doesn't even involve Elena really, it's mainly about my two main men, Damon and Alaric. Because when he looks up into the heavens and smiles that awestruck smile, I imagine he's looking at Ric. I imagine he's silently telling his best friend that he finally got the girl. And I imagine Ric smiling back down on him. Doesn't that thought just make your heart happy?!
