After 7x19 and having my emotions effed with because of the angsty Bamon scenes. And being the masochist I am, I started to think on how Damon try to reconcile with Bonnie….
I can imagine Damon trying to find
ways to get Bonnie alone, so they may actually have a chance to discuss their repress
feelings and work thru their issues, which ends up being more of an argument filled with snarky banter.
Kind of like a call back to their earlier years where Damon tries to call a
truce, but Bonnie ain’t having none of it, seeing past his bullcrap. But this
time, Damon is being 100% honest and upfront, explaining the other reason he
desiccated for three years. (The one he said to her when she was comatose in a
hospital.) How he was trying to protect her and Stefan fromhim, from having to
sacrifice their life for him.
But Bonnie being her usual stubborn
self, doesn’t care about his reasons. So she ignore his explanation and
continues to drag him for his actions. (Similar to how 7x15 hashed out.)
However, Damon isn’t keen on letting her win/finish this quarrel, so he brings
out the letter and reads it. Not caring if she listening or not (tho he very much does
care), he admits everything. His fears, his doubts, his feelings for her that
lead to him ultimately choosing the “easy way out”. Because he believes he is
such a screw up. Even though leaving his best friend wasn’t easy, not in the
least. He couldn’t possibly live with
himself if he was the cause of her death. So he decided to let her go….
(And that in no means justify his
shotty choices, but he hopes it will possibly get her to at least understand
them and where he’s coming.)
And I want Damon to end the argument
with a similar statement Bonnie made to him in 7x01. Possibly something like
this: “You can resent me. Hell, you can even hate me all you want. But know that you’re stuck with me. I’m not going anywhere Bonbon….”

Had a fun art night with mogstomp last night. Neither of us really had any idea what we were going to paint - not even as we were painting. We really need to invest in some decent paintbrushes… using the same sized brush for all details was pretty hard. Despite that, I’m kinda happy with how this turned out. :3
