vampire diaries lb

crazy to think the first show I ever got emotionally attached to is ending tonight. there’s been plenty, and I mean plenty of ups&downs and problematic moments with the vampire diaries, but I’m forever grateful for the dramatic tears, ships, and awesome Friday night hangouts with my best friend. TVD, you’ll be very missed!!

After med school, I came home to Mystic Falls. It felt right. It’s where I wanted to grow old and I did. And that’s my life: weird, messy, complicated, sad, wonderful, amazing, and above all epic. And I owe it all to Stefan. When I met him, I had lost my parents and I was dead inside, but he brought me back to life and I’m going to live it as best I can for as long as I can. Even after our long and happy life together, Damon is still worried he’ll never see Stefan again, that he’ll never find peace. But I know he’s wrong because peace exists. It lives in everything we hold dear. That is the promise of peace, that one day after a long life, we find each other again.

okay so my genius of a best friend just pretty much figured out what the hell just happened: stefan died and gave the cure to damon, obviously. delena got married and there was like a time jump or something to when they were walking down the street and damon just disappeared, that’s when damon died. then, elena sees the house and her family and that’s a sign that she died and basically all 3 of them died over a period of time and i am so at peace with that. the three main characters of this show being gone by the end without having the other characters mourn over it and go on with their lives and stefan has a lot to do with it. it also proves that no matter what damon goes back to stefan no matter what. it ALSO proves that stefan is for sure the main character of this freaking show because he started all of these characters lives and how they turned around mystic falls.
i don’t know but after this i’m satisfied with how the finale went down and i sobbed my eyes out the whole time.
ALSO BONNIE FREAKING BENNETT IS FINALLY HAPPY AND LIFE IS GOING GOOD FOR HER GOOD NIGHT.

Caroline, you’ve been my friend, my conscience, my sounding board. You saw light when all I saw was darkness. You saved me from despair. You told me once that I would fall back in love without realizing it and that’s what happened. Day by day, bit by bit, year by year…with you.
