“Do you even know why we turn other people? It’s not to give someone a one-way ticket out of loner-hood. Okay? One, we need someone to do our dirty work. Two, revenge. Three, boredom… but, you know, that never turns out well. And then you know there’s the obvious one. You love someone so much that you would do anything to spend all of eternity with them.”

“Dear Elena,
yes, you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I’m writing it all down. Granted, I’m a half bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar, convincing myself I could actually hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn’t make the time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me, while I waited for Katherine, and time stood still. Eventually, I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would, so I hid the bottle and walked away, and that’s the story of why I drink bourbon. I don’t know who I am without you, but I do know that as long as I’m with you time will stand still.
So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I’ll do right by you because you may be 1,000 miles away or 100 years away, but you’re still with me, and my heart is right there in that coffin with you, until you come back to me.
