Stelena + Playfulness [Not My Gifs]

Originally this was going to be another Stelena > Delena gifset until I started searching for gifs of playful DE in relationship and not just during buildup and legit couldn’t find any.


friendships between women are often the deepest and most profound love stories, but they are often discussed as if they are ancillary, “bonus” relationships to the truly important ones. women’s friendships outlast jobs, parents, husbands, boyfriends, lovers, and sometimes children. (x)


Thank you for bumping into me that day in the hallway. I thought I would never be happy again, and then…and then I met you. You changed everything for me. You quite literally s a v e d my l i f e

I was looking at my SE vs. DE chemistry gifset again and I noticed something about that 5x04 moment between Stefan and Elena:

Stefan only closes his eyes after Elena closes hers and he’s about to close them, you see them getting smaller but he doesn’t fully until Elena does and I just find that so … like, he doesn’t presume, he isn’t thinking “yeah, she’s so into this”, he waits until he’s sure, until she makes a subtle indication of wanting this as much as he does, it’s not enough that she’s leaning forward, that her lips are parted, that she’s holding her breath, that she isn’t pulling away, that her hands are on his face, she has to close her eyes and y’all are telling me that homegirl wasn’t tempted as fuck in this scene?
