ok but can we talk about the fact that penelope alvarez wasn’t okay when her daughter first came out, just for the fact that her daughter being gay wasn’t something that she expected, but she never let elena know that. she went out there and did research on lesbian culture, went to a gay club and talked to people about her feelings and was even more affectionate toward her daughter than she usually is just so elena wouldn’t notice her struggle and feel bad about it. she wanted her daughter to know that she’s loved and accepted so penelope went through the entire adjustment period without ever letting elena feel anything but supported. she struggled to accept that change but was still supportive of her daughter from the very first moment and anyway my point is that penelope alvarez is the best kind of parent and i love her
crazy to think the first show I ever got emotionally attached to is ending tonight. there’s been plenty, and I mean plenty of ups&downs and problematic moments with the vampire diaries, but I’m forever grateful for the dramatic tears, ships, and awesome Friday night hangouts with my best friend. TVD, you’ll be very missed!!
