Two things I never liked about the S6 finale was how Bonnie & Kai's magic fight was short and that Damon was the one to kill Kai (tho as a bamon fan, I squealed immensely when he choose Bonnie). I always wanted Bonnie to kill him, because in a way, he was her true villain who wasn't connected to some backstory that made it about Elena/Damon/Stefan. So, I loved how Bonnie got the last punishment in to make Kai suffer forever in another prison world.
I totally agree. 6x22 was so important as a BD fan, and it was great to see Bonnie being saved, especially at Elena’s expense considering the history of Bonnie’s treatment and how her subservience to Elena factored into it. But we were promised this wild witch/witchpire showdown, and it really sort of fizzled.
I don’t know how popular an opinion this would be on this side of the fandom (or… any side of the fandom, lol), but I totally agree with you, I really enjoyed the scene where she trapped Kai. The colors were gorgeous, and Bonnie’s cheerful cockiness was just such a rare side of her for us to see… and it looks good on her, right?
Besting Kai brings out something in her… not necessarily something pretty, but certainly something powerful, something proud and self-valuing.
Also, the splicing of that scene with the scene where she tells Damon that Katherine is back was some really interesting/cool editing.
Tomorrow starts Platonic V:LD Week. (Woo!) And I’m doing Calvin and Hobbes mashups all week.
The pencils, inked blue-lines, and final colors for each of this week’s illustrations will be available for purchase. They will probably be listed on my website March 13th, but if you want to call dibs on one before then, just drop me a message or ask.
(P.S. This illo was a bonus I did for a header image. Hand-lettered that bit for the header as well.)

other useful facts:
–> the house of memories opens at around 5pm. this gives you at least 2-4 hours there for everyone (around 100 people) to take pictures, explore and meet people
–> the countdown timer starts at 20:50pm wherever you are. after that timer, they officially start the show at 9pm. i advise finding your seat at around 8pm to get comfortable. this leaves you lots of time to buy merch beforehand
–> the concert lasts about an hour
