Grant Gustin has liked you for a while now, ever since you two were introduced on the set of The Flash during season two. It was now time to film season four of the DC show.

You weren’t big on the show, maybe a hero that would come up and every now and again, but with Grant’s character ‘Barry’ now gone, your character is now much bigger.

You and Candice sat in makeup, talking and getting ready for the new scene. You and Candice have grown close to one anther over the past few weeks, having many scenes together. One thing you two had bonded over was of course- Grant Gustin himself. Candice and Danielle would constantly tease you about having a crush on Grant, but every time they did you would deny any accusation, but of course they were right.

You did like Grant, but you knew it was wrong since you two were co-workers, friends. You couldn’t be anything more than that, or it would ruin your friendship. Even with Grant not filming as much anymore, he was still always on set.

“Y/N!” You heard your name being called from somewhere behind you. Looking in the mirror you saw Grant, the man of the hour, jogging up to you and Candice. From the corner of your eye you could see the actress smirking at you. You rolled your eyes, and got up from your chair to meet Grant. The brunette boy smiled at her, his dimples making your stomach tighten.

You shook off the feeling and smiled at him. “What’s up, Grant?”

He shrugged. “I uh- was just wondering if you wanted to maybe- um..” Before grant could finish his sentence you were called out onto set. She sighed as she looked at Grant.

“I’m sorry.” You said as you started to back up, “We can finish this when I’m done shooting!” You slightly yelled as you jogged off to where you were needed. Grant huffed. He just wanted to ask you out, but every time he was about to you two were interrupted.

He watched from behind the filming crew as you did your job. You were an amazing actress, and he was just happy he got to work with you. Before season four, you were hardly ever on set, maybe every once in a great blue moon to do a team up, but other than that you were always guess staring on Arrow or DC’ s Legends of Tomorrow. You were kind of all over the place.

Just about thirty minutes later you were done shooting the needed scenes for that time period and then started heading to your dressing room. Grant caught sight of you and jogged up to you.

“Y/N/N! Hey, we didn’t finish our conversation.” Grant said as he slowed his pace next to you. You turned your head a bit and smiled softly at him.

“Right, right, sorry. Continue.” You continued o walking.

Grant coughed slightly. “So uh- as I was saying, I was wondering if you’d maybe like to hang out tonight? With me?” Your heart started to beat faster. Was he actually asking you out on a date? Or was he just asking to hang out as friends.

Turning your head, you smiled and nodded. Maybe it was just a as friends, there was no way he actually wanted to go out with you… right? Grant’s face lit up though, a big, goofy grin stretching across his face. As he went to say something else you were pulled away by your hair and makeup artists, going to get ready for the next session of filming.

You weren’t done filming until 10:00 p.m. You had several wardrobe changes and makeup changes, but in between every break, you couldn’t get away long enough to go find Grant.

Maybe he left. You thought to yourself. As you were packing up, Candice came skipping over to you, smiling like an idiot. “You, me, clubbing all night.” She said all giggly. You groaned. You weren’t really in the mood for clubbing, and you weren’t even really sure if you and Grant were even still on for tonight.

Sighing you shook your head. ”I’m not really up for it, Candice. Plus, Grant I were supposed to hang out tonight, but I don’t even think e’s here anymore.” Candice smirked. “We were going to hang out as friends, Candice. I don’t even think he likes me the way I like him.” You sigh, crossing your arms over your chest.

“Oh no, I’m pretty sure he’s still here.” Candice smirked and nodded behind you.”Good luck.” She patted your shoulder before skipping away, giggling at her two favorite people finally ‘going out on a date’. You turned around to see Grant walking up to you with a single rose in his hands. You smiled softly, not being able to help the blush that crept up your cheeks. Grant stood in front of you, wearing a pair of blue jeans, and a nice t-shirt with a jacket over it. He smiled at you as he handed you the flower. You took it with a smile on your face.

Why was he doing this if you were just hanging out as friends? You wondered.

“Here I thought you had left, Mr. Gustin.” You chuckled softly. “I thought you left earlier.” You admitted.

Grant shook his head. “Nope, well I did, but to get you that rose. I was going to buy an entire bouquet but they’re so expensive.” He laughed softly, making you smile. The two of you walked out to where both of your cars were parked and sighed. “So, I was thinking maybe we could go get some ice-cream or frozen yogurt? And just walk around for a bit? I don’t know, I hadn’t actually planned this out all the way.” You laughed and nodded.

“That sounds great. Let me just put this stuff in my car and then we can walk to the frozen yogurt shop?” You said, unlocking your car and throwing your stuff inside. You grabbed some cash and then locked the car again, turning to  Grant. “Alright, let’s go.” You smiled. Grant nodded and the two of you started to walk down to the frozen yogurt shop. On the way there you two talked about the upcoming filming sessions, characters that may be coming into play, your lives outside of the show.

Grant had learned that you loved to read, but then again anyone could have guessed that since there is almost always a book on your chair or in your dressing room. You had also learned that Grant made his own YouTube videos. That was a surprise to you. Sure, you knew he could sing and everything, but you never would have guessed Grant Gustin would have a YouTube channel.

You and Grant walked into the Frozen Yogurt shop, the little bell chiming as the two of you walked in. There wasn’t anyone there, besides the employees of course, but you and Grant were the only customers.

Your eyes landed on the cups that would have the Yogurt in them. You walked over to them and picked out a medium sized cup. With the cups were different things that you could put onto the bottom of your cup. There were cookies, brownies, gram cracker crumbs, Teddy Grams, and Oreo bits. You put some Oreo crumbs on the bottom of your cup before walking over to the many machine’s that held the yogurt. (think ITop It). You put Vanilla, chocolate, and of course Oreo flavoring into your cup. Grant was just putting whatever flavor he liked into the cups. You chuckled softly before walking over to the rows of toppings. You decided to go with white chocolate chips and chunks of Oreo on the top.

Grant walked over to you, smiling. He had at least five different flavors in his cup. He puts loads of toppings on. Ranging from sprinkles, to different fruits. All you could do was laugh at him and his child like behavior.  It cam time to pay for your treats. You each weighed your cups, Grant’s obviously being the heaviest. Thankfully, if you had a cup over two pounds you got one cup free. You paid for yours, although Grant had argued that it was no big deal if he paid for yours, you still did t. The idea of someone else paying for your own treat made you a bit upset.

After grabbing a set of spoon you and Grant exited the shop and started your journey around town. The two of you ate you yogurt, smiling at one another when ever you’d catch the other staring at you.

“So, how’s being the new face of ‘The Flash’?” Grant asked, taking another bite of his frozen treat.

“It’s fun, a bit stressful, to be honest. But no one can take the place of Barry Allen.” You chuckled. “But it is fun.” You smile. “How does it feel to be on the sidelines?”

Grant shrugged. “A lot less stressful than being on camera 24/7, but I do miss it.” You nodded, understanding his feelings.

The two of you walked around town for a little while longer before deciding to head back to the car. As the two of you walked, Grant abruptly stopped, taking your hand and turning you towards him. You gave him a nervous look, wondering what his sudden action was about. He seemed nervous as well, his eyes kept glances back and forth from your eyes to your nose and to your nose to your lips. It only took you a short time to wrap your head around the fact that Grant was debating on kissing you. Gathering up your courage you closed the space between the two of you, you faces so close you could feel his breathe fanning your face.

Grant took your action as the ‘go ahead’ signal to kiss you. His lips fell onto yours quickly, in a needy, but passionate kiss. Your lips seemed to mold to his, as the two of you moved as one together. His hands fell to yours hips, holding you close to him as you held the back of his neck, keeping him close to you.

It only took a few more minutes for the two of you to pull away, breathing heavily with swollen lips. You hadn’t realized that you had your eyes closed the entire time, even when you had pulled away. Your Y/E/C eyes fluttered open, looking with Grant’s glowing green orbs. The two of you smiled softly at each other, still holding onto one another.

“I really like you, Y/N.” Grant breathed out. “Hell, I think I love you.” Your heart skipped a beat. Did he mean it?

You let out a heavy breathe, “Grant I have waited so long for you to say that. You have no idea how hard it was for me to see you and Candice acting like a couple. Kissing, hugging, holding each other. I wanted that to be me so badly. I wanted to say something but I didn’t want to ruin-”Grant quickly cut off your rambling with another kiss, making you smile against his lips.

“It can be you now, here, in real life.” He said softly. His hand brushed your cheek and you gently leaned into his touch. You nodded, accepting his words. He let out a happy breathe, his lips cracking into a smile. You couldn’t help yourself and smile as well, the sight in front of you making your heart swell. “I should probably take you back to your car, it’s getting late and cold.” Grant said. You frowned but nodded. You wanted to stay with him for the rest of the night.

You two walked back to where your car was pared, hands intertwined with one another’s. You were happy that the person you had lied for so long was finally yours. When you got your car you sighed, running a hand through your hair. You didn’t want Grant to leave you, you wanted him to come with you to talk and cuddle in your bed, to keep each other warm as you slept.

“Stay with me tonight.” You say quickly. Grant’s eyes widen. “I-I want you stay with me at my place tonight.” I stumble out. Grant’s silence worried you. Did he not want to stay at your place? Did he not want to take that big of a step so quickly? You quickly regretted saying anything, but when Grant nodded and smiled your worries seemed to wash away. You let out a relieved sigh. Unlocking the car you walked to the driver’s side and got in, starting up the engine and waiting for Grant to get in.

As you drove Grant kept his hand on your inner thigh, rubbing his thumb over the material of your clothes. You couldn’t stop the heat pooling your core. You wanted him so bad. Grant seemed to want you as well, since you could see his semi-hard on through his jeans. You picked up the speed, making it back to your home within minutes.

The two of you got out of the vehicle quickly, knowing that you both needed each other at that very moment. You fumbled with your house keys before unlocking the front door and pushing it open, rushing inside with Grant hot on your heels. When you closed the door, Grant had already pushed you against the wooden frame, his lips greedily pushing against yours. You moaned a little at the force of the kiss. Both yours and Grant’s hands tugged at each other’s clothes, ripping off your coats and then shirts. You kicked off your shoes, Grant following your motions.

“Jump.” Grant breathed out, lips ghosting over your ear. You did as told, jumping and wrapping your legs around his lower back. He caught you quickly, wrapping his arms under your thighs and pulling your clothed crotch onto his. You both moaned at the feeling of the smallest taste of friction. Grant walked the two of you up the stairs, finding his way to your bedroom. Once you two were in your room he dropped you onto your bed and sat up to take his jeans off. You quickly did the same, not wanting to waste anymore time.

Grant watched you, hypnotized as you slipped out of your jeans so easily. You blushed once you caught his gaze, your skin turning a light shade of red. He chuckled, crawling over you, laying you flat on your back. You mentally cursed yourself for not wearing a more colorful bra or underwear set, but then again you didn’t know this was going to happen. Grant’s hands grazed your sides, slipping under your bra and undoing the clip with ease. You were definitely surprised he had done that so easily, since everyone else had a much harder time.

Once Grant had dropped your bra onto the ground you absentmindedly covered your chest. Grant frowned, not understanding why you were being so self-conscious all of a sudden. His hands fell onto yours gently, moving your hands away from your chest. 

“You don’t have to cover yourself in front of me, Y/N/N. I think you’re beautiful.” Grant nuzzled his face into your neck, your Y/H/C hair being pushed to the other side. You couldn’t help but smile as he pressed gentle kisses along your neck and under your ear. He moved down, leaving a trail of hickies and  love bites down your chest. His lips latched around each of your nipples, swirling the hardening bud between his teeth for a few minutes before going over to the other one and repeating the process. When he felt like he was done with your nipples he moved further down South, leaving the same trail down your skin.

Grant looked at you, his eyes asking if he could take off your last piece of clothing. You nodded, sucking your bottom lip in between your teeth in anticipation. Grant slid two fingers through your wet folds, before pushing them deep into your cunt. You moaned out loud, slightly arching your back from the bed. Grant smirked, watching your facial expressions change every time he would curl his fingers inside of you.

You couldn’t take it any longer. You wanted Grant now.

When Grant slipped his fingers from inside you, you took the chance to flip your positions. Your body on top of his. A small smirk spread across his face as he watched you take over from there. You moved your hands down to his boxer briefs, slightly palming him through the fabric. He let out a low grunt, shut his eyes for only a second before looking at you again. You winked at the man underneath you before sliding his boxers off and throwing them with the rest of the clothes. His length was hard against your inner thigh, and the small feeling of your skin against his made both of you moan.

Not wanting to waste more time, you sat on your knees, thighs spread out over Grant’s crotch. You tugged at him a few times before pushing him into you. Grant’s hands flew to your hips, helping you steady yourself as you were lowered onto his cock. He stretched you out, filling you and molding your walls perfectly. After you had adjusted you started to move up and down his length, moaning every time he was pushed back into you. It felt amazing to say the least. His tip would hit your g-spot, causing the both of you to grunt or let out a string of curse words. His hands dug into your sides, or moved to your ass and grabbed handfuls of the soft flesh. You would no doubt have bruises in the morning.

Your pace picked up, your skin slapping down onto Grant’s with each thrust of your body. Your hands held tightly onto Grant’s biceps, giving you leverage as you thrusted your body onto him. He grunted your name over and over again,pulling your chest down onto his so he could meet your lips with his.  You moaned against his mouth, giving him the perfect chance to slide his tongue into your mouth. You let his tongue roam your mouth, massaging your tongue and running over every little crevice inside your mouth.

Neither of you were really vocal, you were to lost in the pleasure to even think of any words to say besides his name. When Grant realized that you were getting tired he flipped the two of you over again, hooking one leg over his shoulder and wrapped the other around his back. The new angle gave him a better opportunity to thrust deeper into your pussy.

You moaned loudly as he did so, thrusting quickly and roughly, seeming to go deeper each time he plunged back in. You thought you were getting to loud so you covered your mouth, biting the skin on your hand to try and quiet yourself. Grant moved your hand though, and held it above your head.

“Let everything out baby, I want everyone to hear how good I’m making you feel.” He groaned. You obliged, moaning and cursing each time you felt him go deeper or hit your sweet spot.

It didn’t take long for his own thrusts to slow and become sloppy. You knew he was getting to his end and he knew you were getting to yours.

“Fuck, Grant I’m about to cum.” You gasped. Grant nodded, locking his lips with yours before he stopped his thrusts, his cock twitching inside you as he came with a loud grunt against your lips. His orgasm set off yours, and the feeling of being so connected to one another amplified every thing you were feeling for him.

When your body relaxed, Grant slipped out of you and laid down next to you, running his hands down your hot flesh. You turned your head, smiling softly at him. He looked so handsome in the dim light, with his hair stuck to his forehead due to the seat that trickled down his face. You liked -no loved- the sight in front of you. he returned the smile, pulling your face to his and placing a small, but soft kiss onto your forehead.

“I love you Grant, I have for such a long time.” you whispered. You looked up at Grant through your eyelashes and blushed when he smiled down at you. Something about him made you feel all giddy and excited inside.

“I love you too, Y/N.” He mumbled. You smiled and gave him one last kiss before the two of you fell asleep in ach other’s arms.

Unbreak My Heart


“I’ve fallen in love with you” She says through sobs. He looks over at her from his spot on the end of the bed, and just shakes his head.

“You can’t love me. We’ve been over this. I’m not the relationship type. We agreed this was nothing more than sex when this whole thing started between us” He simply replied, noticing more tears falling down her cheeks.

Wiping the tears off her cheeks with the sleeves of the sweatshirt she was wearing which happened to be his, she picked her head up, before her feet hit the ground. “Then we’re done here. Whatever this was is now over”

“You don’t mean that” His face suddenly fell, his whole body turning towards where she stood.

“I do mean it. We both knew something like this was going to happen, so I’m ending this now. When we’re at work, we act professional, other than that we have nothing to do with each other” She replied sniffling.

He shook his head. “Don’t do this”

“I didn’t do anything. I wanted to mean more to you then just a fuck buddy, but it’s clear that all you want is to run around and fuck everything that walks like a little boy. Grow up. I’m done with this, and I’m done with you” She added in, grabbing her bags, and taking a last look at the guy she’s fallen for, leaving him and her feelings for him behind.
That was a year ago, and Braylin Crawford could not be happier, with where she was in her life. She had asked for a leave of abscense for that time, just so she could get her head right. She had been at the performance center, working with the trainers, hoping to get back into ringshape. Working with the girls down at NXT Braylin not only got herself back to where she was, she also helped the other girls, moving them along in their training, with her being in the business for a little over 5 years.  Each day she had gotten back to her old self, leaving that depressed girl she had become in the past. The doctors had kept a close eye on her, making sure not only was she working on her ring technique, but most importantly, making sure she’s healthy.

A full year. That’s how long it took her to get back to the ring. It was currently Wrestlemania weekend, and she was set to return to the ring the Monday after Mania. No one knew she was making her return, and she decided to keep it a secret. Stepping out of the taxi, she paid fare, sent the taxi driver a quick smile, before shutting the door. With her suitcase handle in one hand, and her bag in the other, she made her quick entrance in to the building, where NXT Takeover Orlando, was being held that night. With a flash of her employee badge to the guard who stood by the door at the back of the arena, and the clacking of her heels on the floor beneath her, she was in.  Looking around she saw people running around, trying their best to  make sure everything was perfect for the show that night. Superstars and divas ran around the backstage area, putting the finishing touches on their ring gear, and going over last minute strategies before their matches. Pulling her suitcase along with her as she walked, making sure she didn’t get in to anyone’s way as she walked through the backstage area. Heading towards the lockerooms, she quickly waved hi to everyone working, before finding Triple H’s office. Knocking softly, she heard a very faint ‘Come In’, as she opened the door. Triple H was sitting at his desk, phone in hand, and he was writing something down on the pad in front of him. Braylin patiently waited, not wanting to inturrupt his phonecall. Leaning against the doorframe, Braylin looked around the office, her eyes stopping on a poster of him. The guy that broke her heart a year ago. It felt like he was smiling through her, so she decided to concentrate on something else.

Triple H hung up the phone and turned to the brunette standing in the doorway.
“Braylin what do I owe the pleasure of you visiting?” Triple H asked.

“Well, I’m sure you talked to the trainers, and also the doctors, and I was just wondering if it’s okay for me to return to the ring” Braylin simply replied, making her way into the office.

Hunter got up off his chair, and walked to where she stood. “I not only talked to the trainers, but the doctors as well, and I’m pretty sure, you’re cleared to return to the ring this Monday night on Raw” Hunter added in, with a smirk.
Braylin squealed, as she ran over to where Hunter was, and hugged him lightly. “Thank you so much Hunter. I really appreciate it”

“No need to thank me. I’m excited to see what you’ve been up to since last year. I’ll be in contact with you, when I get more details" Hunter simply said, as he put out his hand.

Braylin nodded, before shaking Hunter’s outstretched hand, and with another smile, she walked out of his office. Pulling her suitcase behind her, she walked the rest of the way down the hallway towards catering, where she saw some familiar faces. Liv Morgan sat in the table with Aliyah, and Ember Moon, caught up in their own conversation. Setting her suitcase against the wall Braylin walked towards the girls table, and cleared her throat.

“Hey girls. Room for one more?”

“Braylin!” Liv yelled jumping out of her seat and hugging the blonde with everything she had in her.

“Liv can’t breathe” Braylin replied with a giggle, as her friend let her go.

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry” Liv quickly said pulling back from Braylin, as she was pulled into another hug with both Ember and Aliyah.

“What are you doing here?” Aliyah asked excitedly as the girls all sat back down at their table.

“Do you really think I was missing Takeover? I haven’t missed one in 3 years, and I’m not going to start now. I’m excited to watch ms. Ember kick some serious ass tonight” Braylin grinned, fist bumping Ember.

All 4 girls sat and chit chatted about what was going in their lives, catching up with each other. Braylin knew the subject of him who should not be named would be brought up, and Braylin secretly prayed the subject didn’t come up within the conversation.

“BC” Braylin heard from behind her.

Turning her head, she saw Johnny Gargano standing there with a grin on his face. “JGar” She replied standing up, before hugging him.

“What’s up Blondie?” Johnny asked, hugging her back.

“Came back to visit. Needed to come see if you can still wrestle” Braylin giggled.

“Ha Ha” Johnny rolled his eyes. “Catch up later?”

“Of course. Tell Candice I said hi, and that I miss her”

“Will do” Johhny quickly said, before leaving with his tag team partner. Braylin sat back down at the table, as her head looked towards the doorway, and a familiar face walked in. Braylin’s face fell, and she prayed he didn’t see her.  

Finn Balor walked in to the catering area with Shinskue Nakamura at his side. The 2 were enveloped in their conversation, when Finn locked eyed with Braylin. It had been a year since he’s seen her, and to say he missed her was an understatement. Finn turned to his friend, and said he’ll be right back, as he made his way over to where Braylin sat.

“Bray” Finn said softly.

“Hi Finn” Braylin replied with the same tone in her voice.

“You look good. It’s been awhile”

“Yeah it has. I should really get going. I have to get situated into my hotel. It was nice seeing you. I’ll see you girls later” Braylin told her friends, and then giving Finn an uneasy smile.

Walking slowly out of the catering room, Braylin grabbed her suitcase, and wheeled it behind her, dragging it down the hallway, away from everyone. Leaning against the wall, tears started to well up in her eyes, as her mind went wandering back to the memory of the days of her leaving Finn behind, and how it affected her.

The first couple of months she had a hard time at work. Her matches haven’t gone as well as she wanted them to. She would hibernate in her hotel room, not wanting to be around people. Her friends, and everyone in the company was worried about her. She was usually the happy go lucky girl that everyone loved, but people could see something was seriously wrong with her. She stopped eating, and spent as much time in the gym as she could, that sometimes she would make herself sick. The lack of sleep was getting to her, and her body was shutting down. Health officials took notice, before taking action when she passed out in the middle of a match with Bayley. Everyone in the arena, everyone backstage, and even the audience was stunned at the scene in front of them. As Braylin was being taking out on a stretcher, her best friend Sasha Banks, rushed to get into the ambulance with her. Braylin layed still, hooked up to wires, as her eyes were still tightly shut. Her mouth was slightly open, and her breathing was very ragged, but her chest was still steadily moving up and down.  After being taken to the hospital, she was given fluids, to keep her hydrated, and even though Braylin told Sasha to leave, and that she would be fine, Sasha objected, saying she would only leave if Braylin ate something. Braylin quickly agreed and ate soup and crackers to make Sasha happy.

Staying in the hospital for 5 days, Braylin was discharged when she was finally healthy enough to stand on her own.  The first couple days spent at home, was her mostly taking it easy, and sleeping alot to get her sleep schedule back on track. Sasha checked in on her reguarly, through facetime, text messages, and phonecalls. Eventually her eating habits came back, and she was moving forward, making her back to feeling like her old self. Finn had left several voicemails, along with tons of text messages, when she finally blocked his number, and all of his social media, so he had no way in contacting her, and that was that, because she hasn’t heard from him, and she kinda liked it that way.

Braylin didn’t think seeing Finn again would make her so upset, but here she was crying all alone in an empty hallway. The man she loved, and still did to this day walked over to her like nothing happened between them, and she was not sure she liked that. All Braylin knew was that on Monday, they would be co-workers once again.

Notes : If I forgot to add you, I am so sorry. I lost the post to where people asked me to add them to my tag list. Please let me know again, I am so sorry again. 

Everyone knew who you were from around the world from wrestling in Japan to Ring of Honor to making your way into NXT. Your ring gear consisted of your mouth covered with your eyes peeking out with your hair down as your eyes roamed around. It was rare that someone has heard you speak. You didn’t come to make friends or enemies. You were doing what you wanted, wrestling. It meant everything to you. 

When you saw on the screen that Bobby Fish and Kyle O’rielly made their debut, you were shocked. They have been your favorite tag team in Ring of Honor. You particular took interest in Bobby, he was quite handsome and was a catch. 

But men were the least on your mind. Relationships never work and love was weakness. You didn’t need it, why would you? Who would love you? You never understood the meaning of it. 

You smirked seeing Adam Cole standing on the ramp. 

“ ADAM COLE BAY BAY!” Adam shouts putting his fingers up with Bobby and Kyle standing on either side of them. Regal was going to have a blast having them. He’s already having so much fun having British Strong Style around especially Dunne. 

You turned off the TV taking your bag as you slipped out the door, as you turned your eyes catch Adam, Kyle and Bobby heading your way. The three had noticed you standing at the end of the hallway. Bobby smirks, Kyle does too and Adam smiles widely. The three men knew who you were “ The Vixen.” You were like another version of Candice Larae only you had tricks up your sleeve and didn’t care who hurts you. 

“ Look who it is, long time no see, mute” Adam says, chuckling. You rolled your eyes. He had nothing better to say but to piss you off like the usual. “ Nothing changed, she’s nothing but-” you didn’t let him finish his sentence as you grabbed onto his shirt, bringing him closer before pushing him hard against the wall.

“ I like it rough baby” He says. You sigh before glaring over at Kyle and Bobby, looking between the two of them. They kept looking at you with smirk, daring you to do something. Picking up your bag and flipping them off, you headed to the parking lot. 

“ You are going to be in a tag team match with Y/N, here. I don’t care if you like it or not” Pete snarled glancing at you. You weren’t too thrilled to be teaming up with him too. He was an asshole just like the rest of the men here. 

“ But look at her, she’s doesn’ talk or say nothin’ . I don’ work with silence” you turn your head, deciding the best thing to do is smack him in the back of his head. He shot out of his set so fast glaring down at you. Regal pinched the bride of his nose, he didn’t need you or Pete to start anything. He had enough today as it is. 

You stood up turning to be Pete, daring him with your eyes to do something. Pete looked you up and down, chuckled then turned around to walk out the door.

“ You better be ready in 10 Dunne” Regal says before standing up buttoning his jacket as he glances at you. As soon as Pete leaves, his  gaze softens. 

“ You’re going to be alight?” you slowly nod. Grabbing your jacket walking out the door. 

You could clearly hear everyone whispering as your back turned to them as you grabbed something to eat. Pausing as you grabbed an apple, it was getting tiring to hear them talk about why you never seem to talk. Why was it their business? They should stick to their own. 

When you turned around to glance around, it became quite. Johnny passed by you, but he back tracked to glance at you. 

“ You know, they are just jealous of how good you are in the ring. The way you jump around, you like danger and they don’t take you as the girl that likes to fly” 

You patted his shoulder as a thanks, never hugged a person in your life as you headed past everyone. You hear Billie and Peyton scoff at you as you neared th table. Stopping in your tracks turning your head and raised and eyebrow. 

“ Are you ever going to talk? Did your tongue get cut off in half?” Bill snickers and high fives Peyton. Rolling your eyes, you slam the apple on the table scaring them. Reaching across grabbing Peyton by the hair, slamming her head on the table before letting her go. She grabbed her nose right away with a whimper. 

That should teach her, you thought. 

“ Why did you do that for?” you gave her the look like do I have to really tell you. Peyton was crying, from afar Bobby was watching, shaking his head and chuckling. You caught his eye as he sent you a wink. What is that all about?

From the other side, Pete was watching too, a smirk on his face. He loved watching you when your on fire. He likes it when you get dangerous. That’s one of the reasons he likes you, secretly. Tyler who sitting besides Pete, looks over to where he was looking to see you walking with your hood up. 

“ Yeh can’t..” He mumbles. Pete turns his head, confused to what Tyler is talking about. “ Not her..” he adds. Pete grumbles, huffing in his seat. He can do whatever he wants to do. He’s the Brusierweight. 

After your tag team match with Pete, grumbling that he didn’t tag you enough. He only tagged you once. That wasn’t fair. He walks through the curtain and you grabbed onto the straps of his ring gear slamming him against the wall. 

He smirks, his hair is in his face. 

“ Is princess not happy?” you growl at him, slamming his back against the wall once more. “ Use yeh mouth Y/N or I can put it into better use if yeh want me t’” 

Scoffing, you let him go not bothering to deal with him. You’d talk to Regal about this. 

“ Where yeh goin’? I can take the anger and fix it” throwing him the middle finger turning the corner bumping into someone. You fell on the ground, raising on your elbows to glare at the person seeing it was Bobby. He sits up, smiling at you seeing that it was you he bumped into. 

“ Sorry about that Y/N, didn’t see you” you nod, standing up brushing off your hands on your knees. He stands up facing you. 

“ You don’t look to happy, what’s the matter?” you raise up looking curiously at him. Since when did he care? You pointed behind you to the curtain where you walked through minutes ago. He nods, understanding what you meant. 

“ Your match?” you nod. “ With Dunne?”  you nod again. “ I’m sorry” he adds.Raising your eyebrow shrugging as it means nothing. He puts his hand on your shoulder,squeezing it. 

“ Dunne isn’t pleased with having such a beautiful women by his side. I would be flattered if you were my tag team partner in match even though Kyle is my tag team partner but you get what I mean” you nod, a blush coming over your cheeks. 

He takes notices, smiling before letting you go. 

“ Don’t be upset over someone like him Y/N. Sly fox doesn’t care about men, last time I heard” you titled your head confused where he had heard it from. 

“ You said it once” your eyes go wide. The only time people had heard you talk was in promos or in an interview other than that you were book shut. You had never told anyone about how men particular aren’t your favorite flavor. 

“ I head you talking to yourself. I guess you were pissed that day and it slipped. You had a beautiful voice by the way” 

Nodding as a thanks before stepping back. You had wasted time already and needed to go. You pointed behind him that you need to go. He looks behind him and then back at you. 

“ I wish we could talk more and I get to see you more” shrugging you slipped past him without another word. Bobby was good looking but you didn’t need another broken heart after your first one. It was difficult to trust men after what has happened to you. Also, Pete was on your nerves. Mashing with Bobby. You didn’t need it right now. 

You had a number one contender match to get ready for in two days. 

Pokemon Prom Headcanons


Misty was expecting to go to prom with friends who didn’t have dates, but when her best friend Ash asks her to go with him saying, ‘It would be a lot more fun with you than Brock’, she’s slightly surprised. She goes shopping with her sisters, or rather; they drag her along and dress her up, and finds something she likes. Blue and flowy, easy to maneuver in. It’s a little fancy for her tastes but her sisters buy it anyways insisting that crop tops were ‘totes in’. On the night of, Ash picks her up in a suit that does not fit him well, but makes him look rather adorable, and his rusty old truck that he’s had forever. They spend the entire night being goofs and not taking the entire thing seriously. They were the two idiots who were running around, messing up their clothes and generally being disruptive of other couples. No one expected those two to slow dance sweetly, unless they were making kissy faces and moaning about how much they love each other, pretending to eat face, and generally making a mockery of the whole thing. They ironically are voted prom king and queen, their acceptance speeches were filled with fake crying and Miss America impersonations.


When Drew asked her nonchalantly if she wanted to go to prom with him she thought he was making fun of her, so she refused at first. He was persistent, finding unique ways to ask her. Once he hung a banner in the front of the school asking her to prom she snaps. She demands to know if she says yes, if he’ll quit bugging her, he agrees. When she consents he grins smugly and leaves her alone until the night of prom. May goes dress shopping with Dawn and Serena and almost picks a red dress, but then falls in love with a lacy cream one that suits her coloring perfectly. Drew comes to pick her up wearing a three piece suit and offers her a rose. May acts indifferent, but is secretly flattered that the guy who taunted her for years put so much work into taking her to a dance. They dance most of the night and are tormented by Ash and Misty. When he drops her off she shyly thanked him for the night and lightly kissed her cheek, dangerously close to her lips. May decided then and there he may be a stuck up brat, but he did give a damn good date and she might take him up on his offer for another.


Dawn gets a lot of offers to go to prom, but she didn’t really feel like having a date, she wasn’t dating anyone so she saw no reason to tie herself down to one partner. She always had more fun with her friends anyways. She went shopping with Dawn and Serena, and being the bold, out of the box, person she is, went with a quite sexy option. The night of she got ready with her friends, Zoey, Candice, and Leona. The night was spent dancing with friends and anyone who asked, and a lot of guys did. Even Paul silently offered his hand to her. In the end, it was a great night and she was glad she decided not to take a date.


Iris did want to go to prom, like at all. It wasn’t really her thing; she hated dressing up and pasting makeup on. But Cilan asked and she’d had a crush on him since forever so she couldn’t really refuse. Iris went shopping with Leaf and Misty and ended up finding a dress that wouldn’t constrain her and allowed her to move freely. She made Cilan promise he wouldn’t do anything extravagant but the day of he showed up at her house with the smartest suit she’d ever seen, a corsage, as well as a stretch limo. She almost chewed him out, but saw how earnest he was and went along with it. They did all the traditional dancing and everything, but eventually Iris got bored and joined the two ruffians (Ash and Misty) in whatever trouble they were causing, with Cilan watching fondly but not getting involved. By the end of the night, Iris is beaming as well as disheveled, on the way back she couldn’t stop talking about what a great time it was, but was embarrassed by her state. Cilan assures her that she’s looked beautiful all night, leaving Iris thinking that maybe prom was her thing after all.


Serena had hoped that Ash would invite her to prom, so when she heard he was taking Misty she was pretty disappointed. She opted to go with Dawn’s group of friends until Clemont asked her if she wanted to go. She was pretty touched by this and agrees wholeheartedly. Goes shopping and finds her dream dress, the kind she dreamt of as a child. It was pink, frilly, and had a bow, yet still managed to look romantic. The night was fun; the two of them were very shy with each other though. There were slow dances filled with blushes and nervous laughing, but in the end Serena realized that she had a lovely time and Clemont was so sweet with her. Before he drops her off she asks him if he wanted to go and see a film with her next week. He assumes Bonnie and Ash would be coming but when he asks, Serena smiles and says, ‘Naw, let’s do it just the two of us.’


Leaf and Gary sort of have an unspoken agreement that they are each other’s dates for prom. Everyone else seemed to know too because anyone who wanted to ask either of them was sadly informed that they in fact had a date. While shopping with Iris and Misty and trying on gown after gown, Leaf decides she doesn’t really want to wear a dress and pants were much more comfortable. So she picks out a sparkly gold romper and calls it a day. When Leaf shows up at Gary’s house, he’s slightly surprised, but really what else did he expect from her. At the dance, they don’t dance too much, only when the occasional song they deemed worthy came on. They mostly flirtatiously bantered, and commented on Ash’s stupidity. Gary laughs about how funny it would be if those two were voted king and queen. Leaf agrees and they hatch a plan. Needless to say Gary wasn’t wrong, it was hilarious. 

Edit: An Anon requested I add Bonnie to the list so here she is.


As a sophomore in high school Bonnie wasn’t expecting to be asked to prom that year, she wasn’t really interested, mostly because she figured she’d be going in a couple years, but her friend Max asked her, he was a senior and they got along pretty well so she figured, ‘why the hell not?’. She takes Serena and Clemont shopping with her, insisting that they help her decide. Bonnie refuses to get anything boring, and buys a colorful cocktail length dress. The night of she meets Max there and they have a kick ass time. Max is a little awkward with dancing but Bonnie’s unrelenting energy rubs off on him and she drags him around being crazy and dancing the night away.

I’ll Miss You- Steroline Drabble

A/N: Sorry if this makes you cry as much as it made me cry.  This is just something I felt like writing that’s along the lines of what could happen in 8x07.  Enjoy!

Caroline laid wide awake at 2am.  Stefan’s arm was slipped around her back as her face rested on the pillow just inches from his.  She was afraid if she shut her eyes she would miss something.  Maybe she would miss the way his eyebrow furrowed when he was dreaming or maybe she would miss the way he smiled for a split second whenever she intertwined her legs with his.  These were her last moments with him, and she didn’t intend on wasting them by being asleep. This was their last night together. She wouldn’t be able to reach over and encircle her arms around his torso when she woke up each morning.

Bleach characters' "brilliant" ideas (that were not so brilliant after all)

As requested by lovenickqworld. :)

Ichigo is famous for coming up with really dumb plans - or at least, I like to make fun of him for that a lot. Like the time he decided to take on a menos grande by trying to cut off its ankles, then knees, etc. until its head was within reach. In this post, it is time to celebrate all of the other Bleach characters who have come up with his really dumb plans! So here are some “brilliant” ideas that Bleach characters may have come up with!

1. Renji

“Man! I cannot get this stupid jar lid to come off! Hmmm….I could probably loosen it with just a little bit of kido…..”

It wouldn’t have been so bad if Byakuya hadn’t come by in time to see every inch of Renji’s office covered in strawberry jam. To say nothing of Renji himself.

2. Hinamori

“This is getting ridiculous - I need to get over Aizen-taichio. I know! I will draw some glasses on a potato, and then I will yell at the potato until I feel better!”

You don’t want your subordinates to find you yelling at a potato. You really don’t. 

3. Hisagi

“I’m not allowed to ride my motorcycle in Soul Society anymore. But if I sneak one in, and then do a bunch of cool tricks right outside the captain’s window, he’ll be so impressed that he’ll help me get the ruling overturned! I know it!”

The motorcycle-shaped hole in Kensei’s wall wasn’t fixed for days. Which was about how long it took Hisagi’s ears to stop ringing from the very loud dressing-down he received.

4. Yoruichi (in kitty form)

“I’m pretty sure I can fit in this jar.”

It was good that Tessai was the one who found her. Urahara would have taken pictures.

5. Grimmjow

“Man, ever since all the other espada died, I have been SO BORED. Maybe I’ll shave my head.”

Since then, Grimmjow has sworn that he will not show his face to anyone until his hair grows in properly.

6. Candice

“Damnit! My cell phone just died! Well….I could probably recharge if it if I just used a little lightning…”

When a smoking, turbo-charged cell phone came flying through the air and hit Haschwalth in the face, Candice blamed Bambietta.

7. Giriko

“Sure glad I joined this Soul Society dating app. I feel good about it. Oh hey! Somebody named ‘Bambietta’ wants to hook up! Awesome!”


8. Matsumoto

"The best way to motivate myself to do this paperwork is to let myself take just one shot every time I finish a page. That’ll ensure that I get done quickly!”

When Hitsugaya found her in her “super awesome paperwork FORT”, he was displeased.

9. Starrk

“I don’t need to set an alarm. I’ll just ask Lilinette to wake me up.”

Sometimes Starrk suspects that he secretly hates himself.

10. Isane

“I’m so glad I decided to read up on fish in the hopes that it would help with my fish paste paranoia! I just learned that some fish grow to fit the size of their tank. Which gives me a great idea about how to make myself shorter - I’ll just shorten my bed!”

A week and many leg cramps later, she decided that shinigami were different than fish.

11. Ikkaku

“Shit! I’m super late! Well, I can totally put on my eye shadow while I’m running to the meeting. I’m a coordinated guy!”

Yumichika laughed so hard he cried.

12. Apacci

“I need a movie for Halibel-sama’s movie night. Well, I’ve never seen it but I’ve heard it’s good. So I guess I’ll rent Jaws!”

It was a little awkward.

13. Yamamoto

“I’ve got a long beard. I’ve got long eyebrows. But I feel like I need more! Hmmm…I wonder how long I can get my ear hair….”

Sasakibe sneaked into his room with scissors one night, for the good of all.

14. Soi Fon

“Locking Urahara Kisuke in a kido box for a month did not make Yoruichi-sama love me. But if I locked him in a kido BARREL for TWO months…”

Hachigen doesn’t take her calls anymore.

15. Shinji

“I have a ruler and some scissors. So I’m pretty sure I can cut my own bangs.”

It worked out far better than he planned, actually.

6. Victoria’s Secret Angel

Rebloggable Masterlist || Model Series

Harry: “So, Harry, what’s it like to be dating an Angel?” The interviewer asked him on the red carpet. He laughed and looked down, tightening his grip on your waist before looking back at the interviewer.

“I don’t uh… I don’t really think of her as an Angel, I just think of her as [Y/N],” he smiled, and you couldn’t help but stare at him with admiring eyes.

TVD Cast About Stelena.
  • Paul Wesley: At the end of the day I am biased, and I would say that Stefan and Elena are probably the couple.
  • Julie Plec: I know in my mind I felt very strongly that Elena could not and would not separate from Stefan and fall in love with Damon until she was a vampire. [...] I didn’t feel comfortable letting her let go of what is pure in her heart, which is Stefan, to explore the darker sides of her impulses until her entire life had been turned inside out.
  • Caroline Dries: Stefan is good. Stefan’s knee-jerk reaction is to do the heroic thing. He can take care of Elena and influence her in the right ways. [...] Stefan is a person that she’s going to lean on for advice and wisdom. She trusts him fully.
  • Candice Accola: To Caroline, Stefan is just a friend and a companion and Elena’s one true love. She wants Elena and Stefan to be together. She does not like Damon. She hates Damon, she thinks Damon is the worst choice for Elena and although she wants her friends to be happy, that’s who down deep in her core, that should be together — Stefan and Elena.
  • Julie Plec: My cups overflow with Stelena love and alway will.
  • Paul Wesley: You know, I like this one moment in season 1, when his veins started to come out and he was embarrassed and she was like “no, no, you don’t have to hide from me” and she was touching his face and accepted him for who he is… I really liked that. Season 1 is great. I rewatched recently a few episodes from seasons 1 and 2, and there was some really compelling stuff in the beginning as far as when they first met, like they kind of dragged it a little bit, and I really like that.
  • Paul Wesley recently said that he believes that Stefan will never truly get over Elena. “That love has to always exist,” he says.
  • Charles Michael Davis (Marcel), Daniella Pineda (Sophie) and Danielle Campbell from The Originals have all admitted to being Team Stefan/Team Stelena.
  • Ian Somerhalder: The beautiful thing about Elena is that she is so dialed into Stefan. She and Stefan particularly have this bond, and we later figure out in the mythology of the story why that is. But her having this feeling is genuine.
  • As Stefan suffers and Silas wreaks havoc, Elena’s kindred connection to Stefan will prove stronger than ever, giving her a deep sense that something is seriously wrong. “When you were in love with someone, even if they’re not in your life you have that connection with them; the love is still there whether it’s romantic or not.” Nina Dobrev says. “When she finds out what he’s been through it’s not easy for her.”
  • Nina Dobrev: It’s this cosmic connection you have with someone that you’ve spent so much time with and I don’t know if that will go away.
  • Candice Accola: Oh yeah, Caroline is still a Stelena fan!
  • Torrey DeVitto: Stefan is fiercely loyal to Elena, and Paul is the most loyal person I know.
  • Paul Wesley: Yes, I think there’s hope. Any time you have this intense relationship that lasts for two seasons… I always think there’s a possibility in TV series for people to rekindle.
  • Nina Dobrev: There’s a different connection you have with different people, and I think that Elena had a certain connection with Stefan that was very profound.
  • Julie Plec: The bottom line is that Elena as a human made a very, very, very clear choice that she would love Stefan always and forever. But then her entire life turned upside down, and any feelings she originally had for Damon were still there, and of course magnified. There was always going to be a little bit of a confusion there for her — but not enough confusion for her to be over Stefan. It would take a lot to rip Elena away from loving Stefan. It would take years and seasons.
  • Paul Wesley: “I can’t imagine Elena ever definitively saying, ‘Oh, I’m not in love with you; it’s just Stefan,’ because then I think, where does the show go from there? But her intense feelings for Damon during the sire bond — I can’t imagine that they were true 110 percent.”
  • Julie Plec says TVD’s premise was the girl (Elena) that loses parents, feels dead inside, meets undead boy (Stefan), they bring each other to life. “You want to be able to say ‘This is a show about this thing’ and at end of show, you have to set up how that will work again and again.”
  • Paul Wesley: I really like the relationship between an innocent human and a vampire, it’s an interesting combination. It makes for a very good storytelling.
  • Paul Wesley (about the impact of Jeremy’s death on Stefan): This character is the only living relative of the woman that I’m in love with. So it affects me because it affects her.
  • Paul Wesley: The key to Stefan and Elena, as far as I’m concerned, is time and distance. The more you keep them away from one another, the less Stefan is trying to help Elena, trying to fix Elena, trying to run after her and pick up everything she drops — the more she just screws up on her own, he screws up on his own, they have all these experiences, and then something maybe happens.
  • Julie Plec: There’s the strong, stoic, ‘I’m going to stand by your side no matter how painful it is for me because I know it doesn’t compare to your pain,’ you had that in Stefan.
  • Ian Somerhalder: [Damon] has an exorbitant amount of trepidation about getting this cure because he has a pretty clear idea that once she gets it, she’s going to go back to feeling this way for Stefan.
  • Candice Accola: [Caroline] is Team Stefan all the way. She knows that the root of him is a very selfless, good man and she wants that for her friend. She doesn’t want Elena to get hurt. That’s why she wants to just hit Elena over the head with a frying pan being like, ‘What are you doing? There is this great man that has done nothing but prove that he’s selfless and yeah maybe he was the Ripper and maybe he messed up but he works on it. He wants to be better. Damon never wants to be better. Damon’s always Damon.’ That’s very much the tone of what Caroline has been giving Elena.
  • Candice Accola: Right now, Caroline is really just rooting for [Stefan] and Elena to be together so bad because she knows this is a good guy. He deserves to be with someone great. Elena is great; she deserves to be with someone great. They would be perfect together and live happily ever and I could plan that whole wedding!
  • If Elena became human again, Stefan would be the one living happily ever after with her, Ian Somerhalder predicts.
  • Paul Wesley: I know [Stefan and Elena] are the romantic love story in the entire series, but I do believe potentially that they can find a different kind of romance that isn’t as naive as it was before. I feel in season one, they were really naive lovers who weren’t aware of impending doom of any relationship.
  • Arielle Kebbel: It’s all about Stelena #thatsright #isaidit
  • Kendrick Sampson (who portrays Jessie) has tweeted in support of Stelena.
  • Nathaniel Buzolic admitted at a convention that he is Team Stefan/Team Stelena: “I don't know why girls love bad boys. They cheat on you, disrespect your family and your opinions. I'm team Stefan!”
  • Julie Plec: We wanted Stefan to be her hero, to really reaffirm all the ways and all the reasons why she chose him at the end of last year.
  • Ian Somerhalder: There’s some really sexy stuff with Stefan and Elena, which I always look forward to.
  • Julie Plec: They love each other as deeply as two people can love each other, but that doesn’t mean that their relationship is infallible.
  • Zach Roerig: Stefan honored Elena’s choice to save [Matt] and he’s kind of OK with that because that’s how much he really loves Elena.
  • Julie Plec: Damon and Elena’s feelings for Damon continue to be the biggest things that could keep Stefan and Elena from being together forever.
  • Paul Wesley: You always want what you can’t have. So I’m really secretly hoping that Damon/Elena get together so everyone gets really sick of them. And then they’d say “Stefan would be so great for her, because it’s just so annoying watching those two on screen all the time!”
  • Nina Dobrev (about the closet scene between Stefan and Elena in 3×03): That was definitely a very intense scene, especially because, for the past two years, Paul and I have been working together so closely almost every day. Towards the beginning of the season, we had absolutely no scenes together, so that was actually one of the first scenes where we were working together again. It was such a weird dynamic, and when we locked eyes it really felt like we were locking eyes for the first time. But nothing was said, everything’s in the looks, and the feeling, the tension was built up so much and it was palpable, you can feel the love, the fear, the anxiety, the memories and the history between the two…
  • Julie Plec: There is a scene in “The Reckoning” which I think might be my favorite absolute of the whole year, where Klaus compels Stefan to turn off his emotions. It’s a very intense scene. [...] It seems so ridiculous to say that moment should be romantic, but in a way it was the most romantic moment of the series. It’s a guy trying so hard to hold on to his humanity through his love for this one girl, and then watching as this get ripped out from him… And so we went back in and said you know what, take out all the tension music and make it epic, make it sad and beautiful, use the love cue that Stefan and Elena have, use that cue, not the scary cue.
  • If Elena was Steven R. McQueen’s real sister, he would tell her to choose Stefan/Paul.
  • Steven R. McQueen: “Damon broke my neck so screw that guy! I would go with Wesley (Stefan).”
  • Paul Wesley: I think that Elena’s love with Stefan is an undying romance that will exist forever, but I don’t know if the circumstances allow for them to end up together.
  • Paul Wesley (about the S3 finale underwater scene): “I don’t buy it. I’ll be completely honest. The writers are probably going to get mad at me! I don’t buy it, but it is what it is and so we have to live with it. I personally think Stefan would have just went, ‘I don’t really care what the hell you have to say’, and would have grabbed her – but it is a story and frustrating things happen in life and stories.”
  • Paul Wesley: My reaction to the finale was frustration that Stefan didn’t save Elena. And this year my real question is whether they’re gonna embrace her being a vampire and just commit to it, or whether they’re gonna fight it.
  • Julie Plec: Stefan is devastated. He knows that she never wanted this. He would do anything he could to make sure she didn’t have to go through it but it’s kind of inevitable that she has to. So now he’s got to be her champion and her partner and her true love, and yet also adjust to her having to be a vampire when he himself is not very good at being one.
  • Julie Plec: tefan thinks he screwed up, he didn’t. That’s a point that Elena will make very, very quickly: “Yes, that’s why when I had a choice to make, in about who I wanted to be with, that helped inform the choice that I made. Knowing these things about Stefan versus Damon… Stefan respects me and my choices and me as an individual.”
  • Nina Dobrev: She was in the same position when her parents died and Stefan saved her. Although she was grateful to him, she didn’t want that to happen again. She wanted to sacrifice herself for the people she loved. She had enough of all this. Of course, she’s going to be incredibly thankful that he had enough respect for her and cared enough to respect her wishes.
  • Paul Wesley: I’ve never compelled Elena. I’ve never done it! I respect her too much.
  • Nina Dobrev: Stefan feeds Elena’s soul.
  • Paul Wesley: I think that Elena and Stefan have an undying love and romance.
  • Paul Wesley: I think we all have that situation in real life. But ultimately we make one choice. Elena has made that choice – it will always be Stefan.
  • Ian Somerhalder: No shit it’s always gonna be Stefan… It’s always gonna be Stefan. I don’t blame her, Stefan’s a better dude.
  • Claire Holt nodding to the audience screaming “Stefan!”: Yeah. I think she made the right choice. They’re pretty great together.
  • Paul Wesley: Stelena will always be the core of the show, the show revolves around Stelena.
  • Ian Somerhalder thinks the most romantic scene in TVD history was Stefan & Elena’s first kiss.
  • Julie Plec: Paul Wesley called when he read the script and he said ‘How could he…there’s no way that Stefan would leave her to die, you know… like he loves her so much’. He’s like ‘I don’t buy it for a minute’. And I said ‘What do you mean you don’t buy it? That’s the entire freakin foundation of Stefan and Elena’s relationship…that he respects her choice’. And this is her choice. And she’s saying to you ‘help him first’. I said to him, that your not leaving her to die, your just helping him first. And unfortunately, time has run out and then she dies before he can get back there but you know…it’s the beauty of the dynamic of your relationship and the fundamental thing that separates Damon and Elena from Stefan and Elena. What do you do in a moment where you know that if you don’t save the child, then you save your wife…she will probably never forgive you for saving her. And I believe that to be so true for Elena… like if Stefan saved Elena and let Matt die, especially given the way it all turned out, I don’t know that Elena could ever recover from that. The guilt would have been too much. So even though it sucked… it was horrible for Stefan… it was the worst thing he had to do in his entire life, and he would never probably do it again… it was the right call.
  • Julie Plec: We were heading toward the end of the road knowing that as a human, Stefan was Elena’s choice. We really wanted to see Stefan and Elena come back together after a really long and really horrible season. She was his champion and fought for him, even when he didn’t deserve to be fought for, she still came back and said “I couldn’t stop loving you, I could never stop loving you.” That deserved payoff. When we wrote “The Last Day” last year, we knew where Stefan was going, and that was the last romantic episode those two were going to have probably for a year. We knew it was all going to go to hell, so finally being able to have one tiny moment of intimacy was nice.
  • Candice Accola: Caroline is such a Stelena worshipper. So I think that she just recognizes that Stefan is someone good for Elena, and she is rooting for her to open her eyes and give him a chance. I think Caroline, deep down, does have that little “He’s the best for you. He is your one epic true love. I am not going to let you just throw him away because you’re getting distracted by shiny Damon things.”
  • Candice Accola: Caroline is very much a Stelena shipper. I think Caroline has seen such a wonderful side of Stefan. She really has seen the reasons in which Elena has fallen for him, and she sees that he can protect her and bring a good side of her out. I think she sees Stefan as much more protective and, you know, a good person to be with.
  • Candice Accola: I think that it’s so beautiful that Elena really is Stefan’s true love. So I think ultimately it would be kind of terrifying for a character, who has become strong but still as vulnerable as Caroline, to open her heart to a character like Stefan, who is already so emotionally attached to Elena… because she would probably get hurt.
  • Paul Wesley: I think the Elena/Stefan storyline is an integral part of the show. I think their love is infinite.
  • Paul Wesley: Stefan and Elena are the core of the story.
  • Torrey DeVitto: I’m team Stefan. I think it’s a great love story. [Damon/Elena] would be like Bella and Jacob ending together, it can’t happen!
  • Paul Wesley: This is the case for any relationship: you can’t force anything. You have to let things happen naturally. Stefan, for his part, thinks that if Elena needs to explore the Damon side of things, she should be allowed to do that, and if she decides that Damon is indeed the guy she wants to be with, then I think Stefan would at that point be okay with losing her, because it means she wasn’t the right girl for him anyway.
  • Paul Wesley: I think what they’re trying to do is they built this relationship with Damon and Elena and I think now they need to bring it back to the root of Stefan and Elena. And to do that they need to make Stefan a little more acceptable by her standards.
  • Paul Wesley: I think the story is grounded in that relationship. There has to be hope for them. The series needs that backdrop of them potentially being together and being torn apart. That’s the key component.
  • @paulwesley thinks that Elena and Stefan will end up together in the end.
  • Candice Accola (on the obstacles for Stefan and Caroline ever getting together): He’s star crossed lovers with her best friend!
  • Julie Plec: In my mind, Elena’s parents are dead. It was a human accident, and a human tragedy, and as we know, the night that Stefan pulled her out of the water and saved her life. That was kind of the beginning of their love story.
  • Daniel Gillies: I also don’t think Stefan is out of the picture really. Both Elijah and Daniel think Stefan is still the biggest romantic threat for Elena’s heart.
  • Kevin Williamson: And now will he ever be able to forgive himself and get back from it? And earn the love of a girl again? She’ll love him, but I don’t think he’s going to let her so easily.
  • Julie Plec (about episode 3×11): It’s a big Stefan-and-Elena relationship episode in that you get a sense of how tragic and sad it is that such a great love has been ripped apart as a result of everything that Klaus has done.
  • Julie Plec (about episode 3×01): And then Kevin, in his infinite brilliance, just said, “No, she should get home. It’s the end of the night. We think all hope is lost. And then the phone should ring. And she should almost miss the call. And then when she picks up, he’s there, but he doesn’t say anything because he just needs to hear her voice, because it’s the one thing keeping him from completely falling apart.” And I started to cry. I think that our most successful emotional moments on the show, they’re all very human, real moments. It’s a guy who just needs to hear the voice of his touchstone, of the love of his life, to let him have a better day.
  • Julie Plec (about episode 3×03): Stefan opens the closet door and he sees her, and they come face-to-face. It’s the strangest moment because she’s in his, like, murder board closet, but the way they look at each other… and you realize, ohmygod, these two have not seen each other in so long, and they love each other so much, and the look on his face… We know how much he needs her, how she’s what keeps him from falling over the edge, and he’s in this predicament: oh god, is she about to get caught? Am I about to get caught? It’s just this powerful reunion that always makes me get a little teary.
  • Nina Dobrev: I think that deep down she’s in love with the person that Stefan is. She loves warm-hearted people who are loving… In the last few episodes we haven’t seen that from Stefan but that’s the person that she fell in love with, this guy who’d do anything and everything for her, move mountains, and that’s why it’s so heartbreaking for her to see him the way he is now.
  • Paul Wesley: I’ve been compelled by Klaus to turn off all of my feelings, to forget all of my love for Elena and to give into the lust of the blood and to kill her, to suck on her neck, to suck on her blood. I’m doing everything in my power to hold back. It was really excruciating, on a physical level, and also just the idea of having that woman that you love standing in front of you and feeling the need to drain her of her blood, but fighting that and trying to find your humanity… it was pretty demanding.
  • Joseph Morgan: But there is always going to be this connection between Elena and Stefan. So maybe eventually, that will win. Won’t it?
  • Plec assures that this storyline will be a big deal for the Stefan/Elena relationship, especially as Elena struggles “with her desire to help rescue this person that she loved very purely and very deeply, but also learning the lesson that you can’t necessarily let yourself be consumed in your life by saving someone else’s.”
  • Paul Wesley: Because the love story is important you know, it really is. That’s sort of the undertone of the whole thing.
  • “That’s why it’s tricky,” Nina Dobrev said. “It’s yes and no. I mean, they are because last they saw each other they were, and they do still love each other, there’s no doubt about that. But when you don’t see someone for so long — forget about long distance — you’re not even speaking to them. It’s not really a relationship so it’s really, really hard for them. But when they finally do reunite, there’s a lot of tension in the air because they haven’t seen each other in so long.”
  • Paul Wesley: That eternal love story between Elena and Stefan is something that I hope everyone always roots for.
  • Nina Dobrev: Elena is still holding on to her love and the idea of what she remembers to be the perfect relationship that she had with Stefan.
  • Paul Wesley: Anything’s possible but to my knowledge at this point, her heart is strictly for Stefan, as Stefan’s heart is strictly for Elena.
  • Kevin Williamson: This is a story about Stefan and Elena’s love story. I think it’s fun to watch the twists and turns that we take. Because you know what? She doesn’t know.
  • Ian Somerhalder: Stefan’s left Damon here in Mystic Falls. Now he’s got to protect this girl that he loves, but that he can’t have, because it’s his brother’s girl — and even though it’s Damon, he can’t do that to his brother. And even if he could, she doesn’t love him anyway. She wants his brother.
  • Paul says that despite the blood, Stefan’s eye isn’t wandering. “If Stefan is the way he is now, then no,” he tells us. “Because Stefan isn’t thinking about other women in the least bit. He’s completely in love with Elena and he’s doing this whole thing for Elena.”
  • Kevin Williamson: At the end of Season 2, Katherine uttered that one line, ‘It’s OK to love both of them.’ We’re gonna sort of watch that play out. And what does that mean? It meant one thing for Katherine. What’s it going to mean for Elena? You can love someone brotherly. You can love someone as a friend. And I just think romantic love — it may not be OK to love both of them. I think that’s the journey. She’s got a big journey, because 100 percent, yes, she’s attracted to this man [Damon]. Yes, she loves Stefan unbelievably — I mean, it’s an epic love that’s never going to change.
  • Nina Dobrev thinks Elena’s heart will always belong to Stefan, even if he’s enjoying a taste of the dark side. “You always want what you can’t have, and that’s why for so long [the writers] have been keeping [Elena and Damon] apart because they want the fans to want what they can’t have,” she says. “Now that Stefan is gone Elena will want what she can’t have and she’ll miss him and wonder if he’s ok, and I think it will make their relationship stronger.”
  • Nina Dobrev: With Stefan, whenever he’s around she’s just, it’s almost like she melts into his arms and she feels somewhat relieved.
  • Joseph Morgan: Stefan is more predictable for him because he’s in love with Elena in a way that is honourable.
  • Julie Plec: That’s the difference right now between Stefan and Damon: Stefan sees that in love you have to take the other person’s wishes into consideration.
  • Paul Wesley (about Elena becoming a vampire): I feel it’s sort of a very odd line to walk, because on the positive side, we can be in love forever, do this forever, and be happy forever. If we’re going to speak from a really logical sense, it’s difficult for me to not understand why Elena would want to be a vampire. Because, look, if it gets really bad and you’re really bored and you start fighting, just take the ring off. Step into the sun.
  • If we’re talking about it in a metaphorical, kind of symbolical way, I do think there is a torturous side to being a vampire and it’s this guilt-ridden, tortured, dark, place that can manifest inside of you and I think that Stefan has seen the worst of it, the darkest parts so he knows that Elena would have to endure that and that would be selfish of him to want to impose that upon on her but at the same time, he cannot be like: “Listen, hey, I don’t want you to get old and die…can we just do this?” [interviewer: "don't get old and gross, please"] Yeah, “I’ll still love you, I think”…No, I’m just kidding (laughs).”
  • Julie Plec: Stefan is in the ultimate predicament, which is that he has this wonderfully solid, beautiful love story with Elena, but he’s also got a very complicated love story with his brother.
  • Paul Wesley (about giving Elena immortality): Absolutely not. Absolutely not. He is absolutely not against giving her immortality. But I also think that it would be selfish of him to impose that on her, he knows that she knows it’s an option. So she needs to approach him. But I think yeah, for sure, from a completely selfish place…it’s the woman he loves, eternal love with the woman that you’re with and you never age? That’s fantastic. But this is a curse as well [...] It can be amazing, and it can also be really horrid. And I think having the love of his life with him would be pretty incredible.
  • Nina Dobrev: She loves Stefan so so much… She right now is so unbelievably in love with him, but that’s a big choice, it’s like marriage times ten…
  • Paul Wesley: When Stefan and Elena first made love, it was beautiful. So innocent, so Romeo and Juliet. With Elena and Stefan, there’s an obvious love.
  • Paul Wesley (on his favourite scene to shoot): Season one, my favorite scene was the moment when I… uhm… this is going to sound ridiculous, but it really was that entire sequence I did with Nina up to the point where we first made love. But for me it was more about, you know… she touched my face for the first time, saw my veins, watched me turn into this creature and she accepted me for who I was and it was symbolic on many levels. It was a very intimate moment and I loved shooting that scene, that was beautiful. I think honestly that’s my favorite moment so far.
  • Paul Wesley: I care about this character, I care about these characters very much, I’m very attached… I think the story is beautiful and it’s really difficult not to get involved. It’s like the woman that I love, that I’ve spent this entire existence living for her, for everything she does, she’s everything to me… She’s leaving my life… How can you not emote?
  • Nina Dobrev tells us that as far as Elena is concerned, she’s totally devoted to Stefan. “Elena loves Damon and cares about him, but she’s not in love with him,” she says. “She’s in love with Stefan.”
  • Nina Dobrev (on who loves Stefan more, Elena or Katherine): I’d have to say that their loves come from two very different places. Elena loves Stefan because she feels a deep connection with him that surpasses all the common emotions of high school life. Katherine loves Stefan because her history with him ties back further than most mortals could ever understand. And it’s like a game of cat and mouse. He’s playing hard to get. It’s exciting for her.
  • Nina Dobrev says she was thrilled when she started reading the script for an upcoming episode in which Stefan and Elena take a romantic getaway. As Welsey told us, it doesn’t end well. “I was really excited for them when I started reading that script!” she says, shaking her head. “I was like ‘Oh my god! Would you look at that? There’s sunshine!’ Actually, it’s the best time they’ve had in a long time. It almost starts to feel like the fairytale that it began as, but it doesn’t end that way. It takes a turn for the worst toward the end, but they do have a good five minutes, give or take. Elena smiles a couple times.”
  • Julie Plec: If at any point in the life of this series, that could go on forever and ever, I think that if we didn’t go down that road eventually, we wouldn’t be doing our jobs right. But, I would never say when or how or to what end. I can only say that it’s a show predicated on a girl coming back to life and her development of love for one brother who then, because of who she is, changes the life of the other brother and that’s our show. There are roads we can go down with that in the future, for sure, so stay tuned.
  • Nina Dobrev: Elena’s nature is very wholesome, she needs that sort of consistant love and protection, and that’s what Stefan gives to her.
  • Kevin Williamson: Is she single right now? Elena is always, no matter how single she is, she’s still standing there with Stefan. They’re a couple who have conflicts and they have a big one looming. They’re starting to truly disagree about how to handle things. But no, I wouldn’t stay she’s going to stay single by any means. I wouldn’t say she’s single now. She may be arguing or disagreeing with Stefan at the moment, but I don’t think they’re too far apart.
  • But it’s something more powerful than planning that will keep Stefan’s blood thirst at bay: Love. “One very telling thing that he said two episodes ago was that he has something else to live for,” says Julie Plec. “The difference between last year and this year is last year he didn’t believe he deserved Elena’s love. … Right now we’re at a place where Stefan has come to terms with some of his demons and is feeling very strong in his love for Elena and is confident that she loves him in spite of their current relationship problems.”
  • Nina Dobrev: I think Elena would marry Stefan, kiss Damon because she’s never done it and kill Edward.
  • Kevin Williamson: It’s all about Elena and Stefan.
  • Kevin Williamson: The thing that works so well about this show is that’s a serialized mythology genre love story. It’s about these two lost souls, these two dead souls, one human (Elena) and one a vampire (Stefan), who are together, their love for each other brings them back to life. I mean that’s EPIC.
  • Nina Dobrev: Elena at first meets Stefan and she can’t explain what is exactly that draws her to him but there’s something mysterious and interesting and they have this connection and this bond, and they’re drawn to each other they just can’t help it. She later finds out that he’s a vampire, which complicates the situation […] Stefan is committed and loving and would do anything to protect her…
  • Julie Plec (on Stefan and Elena blood sharing): That’s a beautiful commitment in their relationship. It’s kind of like a monogamy commitment in a way. It’s a little cheesy and it’s very perverse, but I thought it was kind of beautiful and special. Their relationship as of that moment has never been stronger.
  • Paul Wesley: “I can’t see Stefan ever having other romantic relationships”.
  • “I think Stefan went out and experienced every single possible life and in the end, with everything he learned, he came back to the root of it, which is that he wants to be a good man and he wants to find pure, real love. The rest of it doesn’t matter.”
  • Paul Wesley: Elena, Elena, Elena, Elena – he (Stefan) loves her.
  • Nina Dobrev says: “I feel like she has high morals, and she loves Stefan. It’s always been Stefan.”
  • “I think that Elena’s feelings for Damon are still friendly,” Nina Dobrev says. “She’s concerned about him, and she definitely cares about him, but she and Stefan have been through so much. She wants to make that work.”
  • Paul Wesley: I think Stefan is genuinely in love with Elena. Not to get sappy, but I think that counts for something.
  • Nina Dobrev: Stefan is committed and sweet and caring and protective and loving.
  • Paul Wesley: Stefan is sorta hopeless romantic and Elena she’s the love of his life.
  • Nina Dobrev: Elena’s in love with Stefan. And she really was not searching, but it sort of came to her. He’s like this spirit, this person, this thing that fills the emptiness and the loss in her life.
  • Julie Plec: We always said in the Pilot, it’s a girl (Elena) who feels dead inside and a boy (Stefan) who is dead inside and how they bring each other back to life.
  • Bob Levi: For the pilot and the TV series to work, the relationship between Elena and Stefan had to be magic. I said to myself “This is phenomenal”. There is real chemistry between Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev.
  • Julie Plec: It’s the scene where Elena was running in the cemetery. And he’s there, out of nowhere. And the sun is just hitting him so perfectly and his eyes are so beautifully green and he’s just staring at her and she’s staring up in him… Kevin and I both went “He is our guy, oh my god he is our guy!”
  • Kevin Williamson: The look on her face, the way they connected in this moment, that’s what worked for me.
  • Nina Dobrev: Stefan is very attractive because he is protective of Elena and he loves her unconditionally. He would do anything for her, and he’s committed.
  • Nina Dobrev: She still hasn’t decided at her age. Why choose when you have two of the hottest brothers after you? She’s all Stefan, all the time though – she loves Stefan. He’s always looking after her. Both (Stefan and Damon) have different qualities. Stefan will always protect her.
  • Paul Wesley (on fave scene to shoot in the first season): I think my favorite moment is right before Elena and I make looove – not that scene, although that was… anyway, I’m gonna go on the tangent! – the first time I vamp out in front of her and my entire face turns red and I have veins and I’m ashamed of myself because I’m ashamed that I am this creature, and she tells me it’s okay and says turn around and touches my face and tells me it’s beautiful. I thought that was one of the most intimate moment that the two of them could ever share together because he’s never done that with another human being, so that was my favorite scene and I love it. And then the love scene, close second.
  • Paul Wesley: Stefan and Elena have this love that is so pure and natural, and I think that that’s not gonna change and I don’t really want that to. I think it will be challenged as it has been.
  • Julie Plec: In the beginning of the series it was very important to have the journals because the two of them didn’t have anybody to talk to about their deepest feelings. Stefan is alone and caring this huge secret and needed an outlet for that. Elena was spiritually alone in that she’d lost her parents and didn’t feel like anybody really understood what she was feeling and where she was coming from, and so they were able to express themselves on paper. But the minute they felt in love they had each other. He doesn’t need to write something down if he doesn’t keep secrets from her, and she can express herself to him, she can open herself up to him, so the actual dramatic need for the journals diminished just by definition of putting those two into a relationship.
  • Julie Plec: Every time Stefan has withheld something from Elena, it’s always been to protect her. It comes from the right place.
  • Nina Dobrev: But Elena — it’s not about that for her. She cares about Stefan. And he’s important to her and she has this connection with him, but she will put her friends and her family and the safety of her town before anything else, and she’s not going to swoon over the fact that he’s a vampire and ask her to bite him right away and all that.
  • Nina Dobrev: Who knows what could happen in the future, but right now, it’s all Stefan all the time for Elena. She will do anything for him.
  • Elena is very loyal, has high morals and whatever she does, it’s for good. She’s nothing like Katherine. She’s not conniving and she would never do anything to hurt Stefan.
  • Paul Wesley: I have my eyes on Elena only, she’s my love.
  • Paul Wesley: I think that Stefan is a true romantic. He lives for love, and it’s so genuine. He would do anything for Elena. But that said, I think he’s kind of a bad boy himself. He’s a vampire, he’s got a bad side.
  • Kevin Williamson: ne of the most important things Julie and I wanted to do this season is cement the love between Stefan and Elena. It’s that love story that will be the anchor of this entire show. We have to earn that.
  • Paul Wesley (on whether Stelena are soul mates and will end up together): If you ask me what I would like, of course I can’t imagine otherwise. Damon is nothing but a distraction from the true romance.
  • Paul Wesley: Stefan sort of lives for her. You have to kind of think about Stefan’s mind set, it’s very extreme.
  • Nina Dobrev: We want to make it as real as possible, and as genuine, and we want to make everyone fall in love with these characters and believe the love story. That’s what it’s about. It’s about Stefan and Elena’s undying love.
  • Paul Wesley (on whether he thinks Stefan and Elena belong together): Of course, it’s not even a remote option to think otherwise. I think there is no other place for her.
  • Julie Plec: The bottom line is that Elena and Stefan are the true epic love story of the show. Damon is the third point of the triangle.
  • Paul Wesley: I’m thinking ‘why am I in love with this young girl?’ and then I’m like ‘why wouldn’t I be in love with this young girl?’ Her innocence is amazing. Think about it. I’m 160 years old, her innocence is so endearing and amazing to me. I cherish it.
  • Paul Wesley: There’s not anybody and there’s no human that is closer to Stefan than Elena, I think that’s obvious. She really accepts him and loves him for who he is and with all this sort of baggage that he brings, which is obviously just tremendous.
  • Paul Wesley: There was a moment where we were kissing intensely and my face just started vamping, and I hid it from her and she turned my cheek to herself and said “no please, it’s beautiful” and touched my face. And it was so intimate and special, that’s the Stefan-Elena relationship. They no longer hide anything from each other. It’s his greatest insecurity, it’s being a vampire, it’s the thing that he runs away from the most, he’s ashamed of it. So the fact that she can accept that and think it’s beautiful, to Stefan there is no other closer form of intimacy for him.
  • Paul Wesley: It’s really the story of this sort of triangle in a sense, but really actually more so the love between my character and Elena.
  • Paul Wesley: At the beginning it’s not a triangle, Elena and I just have this passion and love that is undying. Stefan is so desperately in love with Elena he would die for her. He would do anything for her; nurture, care and protect her, even jump in front of a bus for her. But at the end of the day, when he sees her he wants to bite her neck and suck on her blood which would kill her.
  • Paul Wesley: He’s in love with Elena; that’s his true love. No doubt about it.
  • Paul Wesley: I think Stefan’s the good guy, but my biggest interest is Elena and her love. He lives for Elena. Without her, he’s nothing. If he loses her to Damon, he will resort to something else.
  • “At first Elena has no idea that he’s a blood sucker,” explains Nina laughing. “They have an attraction that neither of them can explain but she just goes about life and then things start to go crazy.”
  • “This show is cemented in a love triangle over the whole run of the series,” notes exec producer Julie Plec, “and right now we’re very much embedded in the pure love [of] Stefan and Elena.”
  • Kevin Williamson: This show is always going to be about Stefan and Elena. It has to be. They’re soul mates.
  • Paul Wesley: In the books… Stefan & Elena, their love is just so important.
  • Paul Wesley: I just want [Stefan] in the end to find his love, that’s all he cares about. Of course I want him to end up with Elena. Cause I have to, that’s all I can hope for. Elena is his true love.
  • Paul Wesley: That protective, nurturing, endless love that they have and the passion for, like with my character for Elena, but is also infused with this desire to suck on her neck and feed on her and kill her because it’s in my nature so I think people are fascinated by that.
  • Paul Wesley: He’s so protective and in love with Elena that, if her life was in stake or if her life was jeopardized, I think he would take a human life for her.
  • Paul Wesley: My character, he’s been like dead for hundreds of years and then this girl is one thing that wakes him up and he’s alive, so it’s like he’s experiencing love for the first time…
  • Paul Wesley: Elena is his only reason for living at this point, because he doesn’t really have any hope or joy, so when he sees this girl it’s the one thing in his life that gives him purpose.
  • Julie Plec: When you’re telling a love story, the great love stories of all time are always about people who are attracted who are polar opposites. It’s about, “Who is that person who caught my eye across the room, and what is it about that person, why do they seem so different and why do I find myself so drawn to them? What is it about them that fills me up from the inside?” When you have a love story that’s this powerful, and then you throw this genre element into it, with the great guy across the room who’s moody and brooding and sexy and dangerous, and also happens to be a vampire, then you end up with stories you can tell for days!
