    I’m lying on the moon
    my dear, I’ll be there soon
    it’s a quiet starry place
    times we’re swallowed up in space
    we’re here a million miles away

    I just screamed THANK YOU at my TV. No joke. 

  12. February 27, 2014

    Things that bother me about TVD… 

    Stefan/Katherine fans can’t be happy… he doesn’t know it’s Katherine. 

    Stefan/Elena fans can’t be happy… it’s not really Elena 

    Damon/Elena fans can’t be happy… because OBVIOUSLY. 

    Not to mention the fact that Elena is acting COMPLETELY OOC. Even if Stefan chalked it up to Elena reeling from the break-up, he wouldn’t allow himself to ACT on it!! He would realize something was wrong. WHAT IS HAPPENING?

    This show, I swear, I don’t know why I watch it….
