When I first heard her music, I just couldn’t breathe. The register of her voice is one thing, but then it’s combined with her spiritual depth and intellectual and emotional depth. When Nina sings, she is a conduit. Whether it’s pure darkness and shame, or whether it’s pure light of love and peace, she can deliver you.
… but I just want to point out two things and I’ll go back to just share my own thoughts on the series.
I see a lot of people in the fandom are complaining about Favaro saying that Charioce didn’t really gave order to kill the Red Dragon and El, when I myself acknowledge that it’s the opposite; and that this is a huge inconcistency. Uhm. Excuse me. Yes, Charioce did order to kill the Red Dragon (=Nina) and El… but Favaro just stated what he thought happened. And he’s wrong. And, I didn’t hear Charioce deny nor confirming any of that (or I heard wrong?); thus, I don’t really see a huge inconcistency in this.
Another thing… I get the feeling that a lot feeling are complaining (sometimes in a very harsh way, but maybe that’s just my feeling because I like this seris, even if I do admit that they could have done a better job) about the characters committing a lot of (stupid) mistakes, about Nina-chan being too dumb because of her feelings… Now, let me ask you this…
Since when aren’t fictional characters allowed to make mistakes?
Why should all of them do the right thing? Isn’t making mistakes a part of life? Even if they’re very stupid mistakes? Come on, I highly doubt none of you has done any stupid mistake in his/her whole life.
These are my opinions; I might be wrong, of course… and I don’t really know why I wrote all of this… maybe because I think there’s much more to it…
After spending the day trying to catch Elena up on everything she didn’t remember about them. All the things they did together. All the happy nights. All the sappy romantic dates they have ever been on. All the adventurous thrills they had together. They ended up in front of Elena’s old house. They stood on the porch of what is now a house burn to crisp on the inside.
“What are we doing here, Damon?”
“Well, our little trip down memory lane couldn’t end without me taking you to the place I first kissed you now, could it?
“Damon, that wasn’t me. That was Katherine.”
“You remember that?”
“Yea, I remember that. What I don’t remember is ever kissing you on the this porch.”
“Well, I did… and you kissed me back.”
“Huh” Elena sighed not as surprised at herself as she thought she would be.
“But that’s not really why I brought you here.” Damon said in almost a whisper. Caressing her face like he has done so many times before.
“Why then?” Elena asked as she wrapped her hands around his neck. Playing with his hair like she always does.
“This house..” He pauses. Struggling with his words. Elena could see the turmoil in his eyes.
“You burnt it down because…amongst other things, it represented a life you didn’t have anymore.”
Elena wasn’t comprehending. She gently grabbed hold to his face.
“Damon, what are you saying?”
Damon took her hands in his and lowered them. Entwining his fingers in hers.
“One of the first things I ever told you when I first met you… was how I wanted to you to find everything you were looking for…Well…”
He lets go of her hands and take out a small box from his the inside of his jacket.
Elena steps back and tears immediately fill her eyes. She couldn’t believe what she was seeing. She could not fathom what was in front of her.
“The cure…? I thought there was only one.”
“Bonnie brought it back with her from 1994.”
Something about this felt familiar. Elena began to see blurred flashes of her getting ready for her birthday. She didn’t understand why. The tears suddenly stop and she looks up from the cure to Damon in a daze. Wide eyed.
Holding out the cure between them. Damon continues his explanation.
“I wasn’t sure what I should do with it at first. But the other day you told me some things that made me realize that this is what would make you happy.”
“I thought you’d be happy to have it back” The words echoed in Elena’s mind as a another blurred flash emerged. “I am happy”.
Standing in front of Damon with the cure between them. Elena shut her eyes. And the flashes became clear.
“Don’t worry I’m not gonna lose it. At least not before the cake. “It’s your party you can cry if you want to. Ah, Stefan. Such a pack rat. I got you something. I know I promised not to buy you anything so don’t worry… I didn’t pay for it.” “You stole it?” “No…I found it.” My necklace. I thought I’d never see it again.” “Alaric found it in his loft, thought you’d be happy to have it back.” “I am happy, Thank you.” “You’re welcome.” “Can you?” “Absolutely.” “Shall we?”
Suddenly. A series a flashes rush through her mind. As if it was her whole life flashing before her eyes.
“That’s the Damon that is my friend.” “I love you, Elena, and its because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you.” “I can’t lose you. You won’t.” “I’m here til the very end.” “Why don’t you let people see the good in you? Because when people see good, they expect good…” “You want a love that consumes you.” I promise you, I will never leave you again.” “I care about you Damon, which is why I have to let you go.” “I would have saved you, in a heartbeat no question.” “You saved me. Thank you.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen you more alive.” “…that what you felt for me is real. It is real.” “I’m not sorry that I’m in love with you.” “Because you are my life.” “I’m choosing to let you go.” “Because I love you. Then stop loving me! I can’t!” “You and I, we’re messy and complicated but we’re real.” “Because being around you drives me nuts, and not being around you drives me nuts.” “Because I had a crappy day and I needed it. And because I thought I’d never see you again and I couldn’t think about a worse way to die.” Damon, look at me. Do you see a future with me? Because that is all I see.” “You lied to me.” “Don’t leave me.” “Please come back to me” “Promise me this is forever.” “I promise.”
“I want you to be happy, Elena. And I’d give anything to make that happen. If being human again can give you that then-”
Elena stumbles backwards, nearing falling but Damon catches her before she hits the ground.
“Elena?” With her eyes still shut, Damon worries as he wipes away a newly formed tear.
“Damon…” she says and more tears continue down her face.
“What happened?” he asked while he helps her up.
She doesn’t answer. She just kisses him. Letting it all in. All the memories they have shared together. All the happiness. All the love. Even all the pain. All the grief felt from losing him. The relief. That much needed relief she hasn’t been able to feel until right now. He made it back to her. And she’s finally truly made it back to him. When she finally broke from the kiss. She just looked into Damon’s eyes and smiled. Tears still rolling down her face.
“What was the for?” Damon asked, completely oblivious to what just happened.
“Promise me this is forever.” She said under her breath. Pulling him closer until his forehead rested on hers.
Damon was slightly confused at first. Looking at her as she looked up at him with a smile. His confused look transformed into sheer happiness as he finally understood what that smile meant. He didn’t even have to question it. He just knew.
“I promise.” He says simply. And kisses her as vigorously as he did that night in the rain.
Forgetting the reason why he brought her there to begin with.
Worick & Nicolas confessing their love to their crush
Nina kinda had to do the job for Nic. He’s just to awkward, God bless him -Admin N
Worick Arcangelo: He stared drowsily at the ceiling,
exhausted even after ten hours of uninterrupted sleep, his body sore from last
night’s job’s action. He was experiencing one of those moments of lucid
contemplation that were so common right after waking up.
He found it
funny–and a bit ironic too–that to this date he had never confessed to anybody,
but the truth was he had never been in the need to. Thinking about it now, the
constant flirting and teasing that came out so naturally when he was interested
in someone was usually enough to let that person know where he was headed.
“But I overdid it this time, didn’t I?” he thought
probably because he liked this person so much that he had come off with such a
strong hand. His unconscious flirting had become so regular and offhanded, that
the object of his affections had begun taking it as a mere joke. He thought
they probably considered his blown kisses and playful pinches on their butt
nothing more than plain attempts to annoy them.
twisted into a bothered expression; he didn’t want to be taken as a joke
anymore, he wanted to come off clear on his intentions.
made him chuckle. This was so strange, he was actually nervous. But he couldn’t
help it, his mind hadn’t been this unstable in such a long time; with his other
love interests things had been relatively easy, they had always flown naturally
in the direction he wanted, but that was not the case anymore. Many things
could go wrong this time.
shifted his eyes from the ceiling and rolled on his side. Many things could go
wrong, that was true; he couldn’t deny rejection was a possibility that scared
him. But even so, he’d rather be rejected than have to put on the friend show
for one more day.
he got out of bed and started getting dressed. Nobody had requested jobs from
the handymen today, nor did he have any lady costumers waiting for him till
later that night; that left him with enough time to show up at his crush’s
workplace and get this over with once and for all.
In the living
room, he found Nicolas reading a book and signed: [See you, I’m going out.]
[You have a
job?] Nicolas replied [I thought you were resting today]
a casual grin: “Oh, yeah,” he said. “It’s just I’m paying ___-chan a visit.”
He waited as
the deaf man scrutinized him with his eyes.
[Why are you
so nervous?] He finally asked.
“Shit, it shows,” he thought, but immediately
comforted himself. Of course Nicolas would be able to tell; spending more than
a decade with someone gave people that kind of power. It didn’t mean somebody
else would be able to.
reasoning relieved some tension off him.
He waved a
dismissive gesture at Nicolas and said: “not nervous, just looking forward to
something. Wish me luck pal!”
And with that
he was gone.
he was standing at the entrance of the building where his crush worked, waiting
for the message that he was waiting outside to be delivered to them, so that
they could make up some crappy excuse and come see him.
He heard the
creak of a door opening and looked up. There was his crush, looking gorgeous as
usual, making their way towards him with hasty steps. He felt his pulse
speeding up, but made sure his expression remained carefree.
greeted them with a casual smile.
is it? I have to be back soon, my boss thinks I’m in the bathroom and I–”
“I know, I
know, I’ll be brief. Listen.” He took both their hands in one of his and
clasped his other hand on top, the gesture surprisingly smooth considering how
anxious he was. He sighed, then repeated himself; “listen… The thing is I just came here to confess my feelings for
scoffed. “Seriously Worick, what is it? I don’t have much time.”
“They don’t believe me,” he thought, and then
reprimanded himself; “Well of course they
don’t. Did you honestly think that much straightforwardness wouldn’t sound
and squeezed their hands a bit tighter.
“I’m very serious
___-chan. I don’t want to beat around the bush anymore, I’ll say it clearly. I
like you–no, scratch that–I’m in love
with you, and I want you to take me seriously.”
His crush was
staring at him in bewilderment; big, round eyes fixed on his and he held them. His
hands were clammy around his crush’s smaller ones, his heart was threatening to
jump out of his chest, but he felt like a great weight had been lifted off his
crush started, voice low, almost a whisper. “Love is a big word, you know?”
“Yes, I do.
Now I do.” He took a step closer, not letting go off their hands. “So what do
expecting to see his crush’s brows furrow together.
hell you mean with what do I say?” they snapped. “Of course I have feelings for
you too, I thought that was clear! Do you really think I would let you pinch my
ass if I didn’t?”
Nicolas Brown: “Which kind do you think ___-san
would like?” Nina asked.
answer was apathetic and incredibly frustrating to the nurse; [I don’t know,
horrible Nico!” the girl chided him, turning her back on him to continue
examining the flowers they were planning to buy. How was he going to impress
his crush with that attitude? She wondered. Good thing she was helping.
groaned. What the hell was he thinking? It had been an awful idea admitting to
Worick the real reason he had been so unfocused lately; he should have known
their immediate net of friends would be updated on the news in no time as well.
morning, when he had stopped by Theo’s to pick up his meds, he had been
surprised to find Nina wearing her regular going-out clothes instead of her
nurse scrubs, and surprise had given way to bewilderment when she took hold of
his hand and cried out for the Doctor to hear: “We’re leaving now! See you
[What are you
doing?] He had signed.
nurse giggled: [I’m helping you with the preparations]
raised a questioning eyebrow. [What preparations?]
to ___-san of course! Here, I made a list of the things we’ll need.]
And much to
Nicolas’ pride’s chagrin, he hadn’t been able to tell her no.
A few hours
later they were on their way back to Theo’s clinic, Nicolas now carrying a bouquet
of peonies–not roses, Nina had said, he could reserve those for Valentine’s Day–,
a box full of heart-shaped chocolates, and a bag with craft paper of various
colors, markers, and stickers that he was supposed to use later to write a
letter explaining his feelings. Nina was walking by his side, kicking rocks
cheerily as she went on chattering about other important details for his “big
moment”; like the setting, for example. She thought he should confess at dusk
because it would be more romantic, besides it would also be a little symbolic–“because you’re both twilights, get it?”
“…And we also
have to practice what you’re going to say Nico, what do you have in mind?”
nothing in mind. He would never, in a million years, confess to anybody. He
just didn’t have the heart to tell that to Nina. His current plan was to pretend
to go along with her plan, and later tell her things hadn’t gone too well and
that they should stop bothering ___ from now on. He would give the flowers to
Worick, he sure would find some woman to woo with them; he himself could eat
the chocolates, no problem with that; as for the handicrafts supplies, he could
say he didn’t need much from it and give them back to Nina, he knew she had
only chosen them because she was hoping to keep some later, especially the
[I don’t know]
he signed. [But don’t worry, I will when I see them.]
delighted with that answer; she stated it was a great idea, that it would make
him look natural and genuine. Seeing her like this, radiant with excitement and
having the time of her life with this love story in her hands, Nicolas couldn’t
suppress the smile that rose to his lips.
didn’t last long though, because things never went as planned.
clinic came in view, Nicolas was horrified to see the door swinging open and
his crush walking out. The twilight was holding a paper bag with their own dose
of celebre, and stopped on the front steps to exchange a couple words with the
to him with an overjoyed smile on her face. Nicolas felt as though an ice-water
bucket had been dumped on him, his guts curdled. He balanced the chocolate’s
box on his arm so that he could sign quickly: [I’m out. Bye.]
Nina pulled him by the hem of his black sweater when he tried to scurry away. What
was an absolute catastrophe to the man seemed a sign sent by God to her.
Nico! This is your chance! I guess there’s no time for the letter but that’s
okay, I’ll keep the supplies, you can give them the chocolates and flowers.”
looked around for excuses. [It doesn’t seem like a good moment.]
“Of course it
is! Look, the sun is setting, it’s perfect! Come on, you can’t chicken out now.”
He let out an
agonized sound when Nina grabbed him by the hand and started dragging him
towards the clinic’s entrance.
As Theo disappeared
behind the door, the twilight that had been talking to him turned around and
came face to face with a smiling Nina. Behind her was a man whose face was as
red as an apple. They had seen him before, they sometimes happened to meet in
the clinic. They knew his name was Nicolas and that his compensation was his
lack of hearing, but nothing more.
Nina-chan. I was surprised I didn’t see you today, where were you?”
answering, Nina pushed Nicolas forward: “___-san, my friend Nicolas has
something very important to tell you,” she said candidly. “So I’ll just take
this and leave you guys to talk.” She took the bag with supplies from Nicolas and
hurried inside, leaving Nicolas alone and with a strong desire to disintegrate into
before him was eyeing him with an expression of sheer bewilderment.
“No wonder,” he thought. After all, the things
he was holding left his intentions perfectly exposed; they were probably
thinking he was crazy.
“I’m sorry,” he said bluntly, shoving the
flowers and chocolates into the other twilight’s arms. He was more aware of his
slur and how stupid it probably made him sound than ever. “It was her idea.”
“I knew you
would blame it all on me!” Nina yelled, slamming the door open. She had been
listening on the other side.
crossed her arms across her chest, a deep frown on her face, but when she addressed
Nicolas’ shocked crush her voice was gentle and polite:
___-san, this guy’s been drooling over you since the moment he saw you. I know
he looks like this and he’s not good with words, but he’s really a good guy. I
swear; he’s my best friend. You just got to get to know him a bit better. So
please ___-san~ Can you give him a chance?”
situation began to sink in, the twilight started to smile. It was all so
amusing, not to mention heartwarmingly adorable. They looked at Nicolas, who
was clearly wishing he could be swallowed by the ground under his feet, and
thought for the first time that he was a handsome man, in a scruffy kind of
way. He also had to be a very sweet person to go along with a twelve years-old
girl’s attempt at cupid-matching.
chuckled, their affable expression easing some tension off Nicolas.
“Well Nina, I
might take you word for it,” they said, giving the deaf man a significant stare.
“After all, I love chocolate and these are beautiful flowers, did you choose
his mouth to answer, but Nina was faster:
