30 days of bonnie bennett - day 01
the episode you began to care about this character: 1x03 friday night bites

okay now i’m terrible with words but i’ll try my best to explain this one. I’ve loved bonnie since episode 1 but i didn’t ‘click’ i guess you can say with her until this episode. this scene in particular. through out this episode you see her kind of confused and dealing with whats going on with her and her traits of being loyal and a good friend are put more on display during the scene when she tells elena what she felt when she touched him. she cares and wants her to know somethings not right. okay anyway back to this scene. the fear in her eyes when she sees the blood, then the numbers. its not only fear but a mix of realization or definite certainty that something was happening to her and her face i just got the feeling of 'oh baby, no'because i hated seeing her that way. after that, i just started caring so much for her and it led to where i am today when it comes to her.

this probably makes 0 sense, oops.

favorite witchy/magical moment so far: emily posesses bonnie and destroys the amulet in 1x09 history repeating

ugh this one was so hard for me. i had so many choices and ultimately i chose this scene because 1) eventhough technically its emily, this is my favorite bonnie scene and my favorite s1 episode and 2) it was amazingly done in my opinion. the cinematography, the colors, the effects, everything. besides storm!bennett in season 2, this is my all time favorite scene containing magic.
