It seemed that there was no slightest motion she had made,
no briefest word that she had said,
that he had not noticed and locked in his heart as a treasure.

What can I say about Damon and Elena?
They are so unique and special for so many different reasons….
I guess I’ll mention a few of the main causes that make D&E so exceptional in order not to write pages and pages .
The first thing that drew me to them was how Elena became Damon’s humanity.
Elena finally made Damon to feel again, to be alive, to be happy, and to experience new emotions brought with the sentiment of REAL love.
Then, Damon made this for Elena in the sense that she had become just a shell of what she was after all the suffering she had to go through.
But Damon made her feel alive again, lit up that spark in her, that passion and fire so innate of her.
There is also the fact that Damon and Elena didn’t become a couple in just a short amount of time.
They had build-up… really SUBSTANTIAL build up.
They didn’t start in the best terms but Elena took time to care about Damon and Damon slowly and inevitable fell in love with her.
Elena later also fell inevitable in love with Damon (…and boy she tried to deny it).
She wasn’t expecting it of course… to fall in love with her boyfriend’s brother but “The heart wants what the heart wants”.
Moreover, there is the also the detail that DE are never boring (to us or to each other), they are unpredictable, they challenge themselves and they both spark that fire in each other.
Lastly, I must mention their chemistry and connection which are so strong, explosive and electric… it’s amazing to see them.
All of this explains why I love D&E so profoundly!

Love is not an easy road, it has many steps and bumps, it's not always butterflies and rainbows,
it's hard, really hard, but when you love someone enough, it's worth the fight.
Never have any words described DE better than those.
When Damon first came to town, he wanted to hurt Stefan and make him suffer by going after Elena, but it didn't work because soon after, he started to care about her, and protect her, and save her.
Elena makes him feel things he never thought he could feel, she brings out that humanity he has tried to bury and he fell in love with her.
And Damon brings out Elena's fun side, he tells her the truth, he makes her smile, he challenges, something that she needs.
DE have come so far from their first scenes, they have fought, they have laughed, they have loved, they have lost, but no matter where their journey takes them now, they will go through it together, no matter what.

I love Delena for their strength and depth
I love them for their trust and unwavering devotion
Damon and Elena have seen each other at their worst and can still look one another in the eye and see a reason to believe
At their very core - Delena is faith and absolute acceptance
It's a love so real that it touches everything and everyone around it
Because it's them against the world
I ship Delena because it's a love that could never sink
Because for Damon and Elena, falling in love was never a choice
It was necessary..Like breathing
I love Delena because they ARE love

“Show me,” whispered Elena.
And she knew that something else in her mind was whispering too,
whispering different words. […] Whispering, I’m yours…
"There's a closeness between Elena and Damon that she might try to ignore and fight, but it’s obvious to everyone around them."
~ Julie Plec
"Damon, you’re so close. Don’t give up."
"Wanna know what I think? I don't think I've ever seen you more alive."
♦ S e a s o n 3 P l a y l i s t
"Somewhere along the way, you decided that I was worth saving."
"It's so obvious that Elena should be with Damon."
She reached for the candle, meaning to take it and leave him,
fighting off the dizziness that threatened to overcome her.
But before she could grasp it, he did something extraordinary.
He caught her reaching hand, not roughly but gently,
and held it in his cool slender fingers.
Then he turned her hand over, bent his dark head, and kissed her palm.

The chemistry and spark between Damon and Elena is enough to set the entire universe on fire.
Their bodies call out for each other, they can’t help but roam and devour each other’s faces with their eyes, absorbing every little detail there is.
The passion and raw desire is undeniable.
Their body language and attraction speaks volumes.
But this is not the only thing that makes me ship DE hardcore.
What makes my heart swell with joy is how selfless and determined they both are.
The love Damon has for Elena is endless, and his actions have definitely proved this.
There’s no one in the world Damon cares more about than Elena.
He wants to become the better man for her. He wants to be forgiven.
He wants to deserve her.
He will always choose her.
Elena understands him, she decided he was worth saving, and in the end of the day she’ll always forgive him.
She has fun around him; she can be herself and let things go.
They’re perfect for each other, because they’re like two pieces of a puzzle that are meant to fit together, forever and always.
Karla ~ (xKarlaCruz)
Damon and Elena have changed the world of tv forever with their epicness.
I have never seen a pairing so well written with such a beautiful journey.
Their relationship is based on trust and honesty. They have a chemistry that goes through the roof.
They are not one of these rushed couples that don't make sense.
They have had the best build-up ever so far and their journey is far from being over.
They love each other for what they really are, they have never hidden who they were from each other.
They bring out the best in each other.
They are better persons together.
He makes her happy and secure like no one else does.
She makes him care and feel like no one else does.
You can't deny what is going on there.
They belong together.

Even as Elena was sitting up and turning in her dream, she was holding out her arms.
This person belonged with her.
He was her magic, her solace, her best-beloved.
It didn’t matter how he’d gotten there, or what had happened before.
He was her soul’s eternal mate.
"Elena and Damon have grown ever closer. It's that kind of foundation upon which lasting relationships grow."
"Why don't you let people see the good in you?"
"Come on, Damon. That’s a lie. You care."
He spots her. He feels strangely giddy, like a little boy again. He feels as far from a monster as he ever has since he turned. He takes a breath, and approaches. They will have to talk about it now.
'But you'll do it anyway, for Elena.'
Damon can say nothing to that, he can barely smirk.
Alone together. But Elena is distracted, Damon guesses. She is not full of excuses and apologies. She does not mention it, but it's burning him up inside. He prods her, pushing her to say something, but her eyes are dull with confusion. Then she tries to leave.
Damon grabs her arm, pulling her back to him.
'If you want to forget it happened, fine. But I can't.'
His lips are still tingling from the touch of hers. His eyes begin to drift again.But Jenna appears, and he steps back. He does not want to make this hard for Elena, he just wants to talk about it. He listens to them, listens to their confusion.
And that's when he feels a stake through his heart. It was Katherine that he kissed.
[ continue here ]
"Going after Elena? Bad move. You leave her alone or I’ll rip you to bits."
"How much do I love Damon trying to protect Elena from herself?"
But he'd been decent to her when she'd been confused and irrational.
He'd taken her to shelter; he'd kept her safe.
And he hadn't kissed her while she'd been in that horrifyingly vulnerable state.
He'd been… kind to her.

I've never really been good at testimonies, but I felt that I should for Damon and Elena, even though I don't come to the thread as much as I use too.
I use to come to the thread every day.
It was the highlight of my day, seeing all the threads we pass, and what titles people come up with.
I've been lucky enough to see the first thread when the board was just opened, and even though I don't post as much as I did, I still find myself lurking.
My passion for the couple has not failed.
And it's because there is only one Damon and Elena; A couple who are flawed, and passionate, whether their together or apart.
But when you bring them together, they always seem to bring out so much.
With him, it's his humanity, with her it's reality.
Damon forces Elena to face the reality of her relationships, especially with Stefan.
Sometimes it's a bit over the top and those choices sometime, turn out to put a dent on their growing bond, but that's why they’re so great.
It makes every stare, every touch they make, whether it’s a hug or hands touching, that makes Damon and Elena's moments so special.
You never know what you’re going to get with them.
It’s why I love Damon and Elena so much.
It’s because you see themselves grow together.
Elena once said she didn't know what Love was, and neither did Damon, it's that statement that makes you think that they can discover it together.
They can find it in each other.
Damon, for over hundred years spent his life obsessed with someone, loving everyone around him but not getting it in return, until the moment he was dying and Elena said, she liked him for who he was, just the way he was.
Elena wouldn't change a thing about Damon, and Damon wouldn't change a thing about her either.
They understand and care for each other like no other couple.
Their build up is real and moving and as a fan you enjoy the changes in relationship.
How everything sometimes feels like it's the end, but somehow Damon and Elena pull through.
Their bond doesn't slow down.
It keeps moving and growing till one day it will turn into love for both.
It has to because their kind of connection doesn't just happen, or fade away.
Their love transcends through everything. It's like their poster once said: drawn together and not pulling away.
That's how it should be.
They’re twin flames, and no one will get them like each other.
No one will ever take each other's place.
They are meant to be, and one day, when they both realize it, it's not going to some fairy tales.
It’s not going to easy going or sappy, because it's going to real.
There will be fireworks, and unconditional love in the most beautiful way.
I've never been so happy to ship a couple like I am Damon and Elena.
Because there are a thousand reasons not to ship them, but yet you can't help but see the beauty that is their relationship.
You can't help but root for them, because there is no one like them, and there never will be.
I can't wait to see what happens in the future for them because I know it's going to one amazing rollercoaster.
Congrats on so many threads you guys.
You make me so proud to be a part of such amazing fanbase, I wouldn't change a thing about you!

There was nothing sweeter in her life these days than Damon’s kisses.
She could drift like this forever, forgetting the outside world. […]
But if she could always come back to this, this welcome, this sweetness, this ecstasy…
"Elena may not realize it yet, but all the fans do. She belongs with Damon"
"It's right. Just not right now."
"No, Elena. This is our time. It's never been right before, but it is right now."
"I want you to remember the things you felt while he was gone."
" You two idiots can't stand that she's happy because of me."
"I'm always entertained by the possibility. Elena and Damon have fun together. It's fun to watch them together because they do have a rapport in the way they play."
~ Nina Dobrev
with the utmost gentleness,
and without glancing around to see if anyone was watching them,
Damon cupped Elena’s scarf-bound cheeks with his bare hands,
pulled the scarf just below her lips with his thumbs, and kissed her softly.
Softly—but not briefly,
and something in Elena kept whispering to her that
of course she had heard his call from the moment she first saw him,
first felt his aura call to her.

I believe it is impossible to not love DE if one loves the characters of Damon and Elena both as they bring out what is best in each other and make the other one grow.
All great love stories, of the kind that are the most memorable, are of couples who need to work at it to finally end up together.
They face many obstacles, from third parties intervening to their own making
-their fears, stubbornness, self-worth issues-
But after all the struggle, both inner and outer, they finally grow, both as characters and a couple to reach a point where it is time to open themselves to one another completely and claim the other as their true eternal mate.
And that is the moment everyone has been waiting for.
That is the moment the whole story has been building for.
Every obstacle in their way was there to bring them a step closer to one another, to add more meaning to their story, to make it even more memorable, more striking.
And DE is made of that kind of greatness.
Theirs is the story that already managed to strike something special in a lot of people.
Theirs is the relationship that gets lots of build-up and intrigues and moves everyone one way or another and has them talking.
They are THE couple of the show that everyone responds to. DE is the couple who has a story that needs and deserves to be told and TVD is telling that story.
Asena ~ (Schumiac)
If you asked me to write a testimonial on any other ship that I enjoy, I'd throw something together in minutes.
I'd mention a few scenes, say that I loved them, and then I'd send it off without a second thought.
But this is Damon and Elena.
This is my ultimate ship of all time, that nobody can ever touch.
Part of me doesn't even want to write one, because I'm afraid that no words can do them justice.
Their story has been crafted with such care, and such intimacy, that every time I try and get my head around what they have come to mean to me, I simply dissolve into a fit of giggles.
Both Damon and Elena are on separate journeys, yet they are Twin Flames, and their paths will forever intertwine.
I could rave about so many scenes, so many looks, so many quotes.
I could talk endlessly about the chemistry shared between Ian and Nina.
But what really excites me, is all that there is to come.
With that one kiss, Elena has finally taken that step.
Soon, we will see her struggling with those feelings she had always buried before.
No doubt we'll see more tears. But we'll also see laughter, and smiles.
We'll see their first real kiss, their first mutual hug, the first time that they make love.
This is the journey.
This is the story.
Elena doesn't think that Damon knows what love is? But neither does she.
They'll find out, when they come to love each other.

Something was shining on Damon's face.
She reached toward it, touched it, and lifted her fingers away in wonder.
"Don't be sad," she told him, feeling the cool wetness on her fingertips.
But a pang of worry disturbed her.
Who was there to understand Damon now?
Who would be there to push him, to try to see what was really inside him?
"Damon and Elena are without a doubt the most sexually frustrated on the show."
"I’m in love with a woman I can never have."
" I love you, Damon... I love you."

"The wonderful thing about Damon and Elena's relationship is how deftly and patiently it's been developed."
She was facing him now,
but strangely Damon didn’t find himself tracing the blue veins in her fair, smooth skin.
He found himself staring hungrily at her slightly parted lips.
They were…almost impossible to resist.
Even in sleep they were the color of rose petals, slightly moist, and parted that way…[…]
It seemed to jerk him out of a dream world.
What had he been thinking? Risking everything, all his plans, for a kiss ?
● ● ●
"The usual words, epic, star crossed, meant to be, do not seem to suffice in explaining the unique connection that Damon and Elena share.
The way that they challenge each other, push each other to their limits, and ultimately, as all the best loves do, bring out the best in each other, is like no other.
She brings out his humanity, that seemingly lost part of him that feels, and he inspires to her laugh and let loose.
He is her rock, her constant when everything is falling apart.
And yet despite all that they do for each other and the numerous times they have saved each other, emotionally and physically, there is still so much between them that is unspoken and constantly communicated through looks and small gestures.
The chemistry between them is simply electric, they are THE definition of the slow burn until the day that their passion combusts.
This eternal dance that they are constantly taking part in shows no signs of slowing down, because its driving force, and the backbone of their relationship is passion, respect and complete understanding of who the other person really is.
No matter where their relationship stands, they always come back to each other.
They are each other's constant, when one is in the dark the other brings the light.
Their back and forth, their ups and downs are the reason we love them, and the reason they are meant for each other.
Yes, it's difficult and there are many times that they could have given up on each other, but they don't.
And they won't.
Because, after all, "no one writes songs about the ones that come easy."
Sophia ~ (*~Sophia~*)
Damon and Elena are more than the average couple.
Their bond is stronger, their passion is fiercer.
Their feelings are deeper, wilder and easily brought to extremes.
Parted of mistakes, their imperfect journey actually makes them perfect for each other because they have already acknowledged each other's strength and flaws.
They've seen the other desperately fighting.
They've seen each other losing and winning.
They've seen each other in dark places and still accepted each other for what they really were.
Damon's love for Elena is unimaginably intense.
It is loyal, feverish to a point where he'd kill himself, and let her hate him for it, if at the end of the day, it would save her life.
Elena brings forbidden feelings out of him, forgives his mistakes, knows his soul, sees what man he really is behind his mask and behind the walls he so particularly built over years of hurt.
Elena does not want to feel something for Damon but she cannot help herself; she does.
She does not want to admit the reality of the "something" between them.
She does not allow herself, but one day, she will have to face it.
She'll have to confront what happened in Damon's room and until then, both of them are not ready for the other.
Damon has to find his soul, get used to have his humanity back and Elena has to find herself. Kevin Williamson said it himself; these characters need to find their souls first. Mates will come later.

She realized that the way to calm this maelstrom was to become part of it,
neither giving in nor forcing Damon to,
but by meeting the passion in the undertow with what was inside her own heart.
As soon as she did, the undertow became wind,
and she was flying and not drowning.
No, it was better than flying, better than dancing,
it was what her heart always yearned for.
A high still place where nothing could ever harm them or disturb them.
"If it doesn't happen for Damon with Elena - I think it's going to be a slow roast, but I would imagine if that doesn't work out, he'd probably just take his ring off. I don't think it would be worth it anymore."
~ Ian Somerhalder
"I'm telling you, it's the most real thing I've ever felt in my entire life."
"I don’t know what I would do if you weren’t here."
She stands atop the stairs, battered but smiling. Framed by a soft light, she looks like an angel to him.The look upon his face is something pure.
She throws herself down the stairs and into his brothers arms. Damon's smile falters. It's not that he truly believed she was running to him, nor that he is surprised. It's just another reminder, that she can never be his.
It's as he thinks that, that she looks up. Just as once before, she holds his stare over the shoulder of the man that she is supposed to love. She holds the stare of the man that she is meant to.
[ continue here ]
"I will always choose you."
"Does this feel wrong?"
"Elena and Damon continue to steal the show every chance they get."
"I think you'd better leave now."
She didn't want him to talk anymore.
His voice did strange things to her,
made her feel oddly weak, started a melting in her stomach.

Damon and Elena started out representing a forbidden underdog for me.
Although the so called “it” evolved.
It grew a breath of fresh air with mysterious fascination at first.
Then wings of fierceness with their first encounter, the gentle brush of his lips against her smooth hand.
Honesty and immediate understanding struck me, disillusioned me completely so soon, so not deep into the series.
I loved when he made her laugh.
It swelled when I thought, beaming, it indeed will come down to the love of a woman for the lost, allegedly evil soul of his, which pounds in the chest, wounded, yet still there to be somewhat saved, to eventually seek home in Her arms.
Harsh words were spitted out, brief angry palm broke the alarmingly red silence and there she was so mad with her Twin Flame, just fuming.
And I grinned.
I knew this was “IT”.
Unspoken chemistry boils when their eyes meet for an even a second lasting gaze.
Their alike minds understand source of each other’s decisions.
The same priorities, different angles although same passion.
The liberation of their hidden features is immediate, it just happens with them, it’s carefree and out there, natural and so real it burns your soul with its beauty.
With Damon and Elena slow burn got reinvented meaning genius screaming from all the lines, gestures, looks while it’s all about their characters’ journey.
Now I understand it’s not wishful thinking anymore, it’s grounded and destined to be, something I simply couldn’t resist.
They’re everything, still growing to be more because the fight goes on as they seek their own paths slowly discovering how meaningful and worthy they are of each other, how they crave for the one true love that will one day explode uniting their hearts in an everlasting embrace.
I call it one word: EPIC!
Paulina ~ (MademoisellePaulina)
Reading about them for the first time I just fell in love with their names and the sound of them together.
Damon and Elena sounded so beautiful and I felt like these names just fit together.
I didn´t even know about their story and never saw their faces, but just the sound of their names got me interested, so I decided to check out WHO Damon and Elena really were.
I never regretted it.
From the very beginning I adored how Elena stood up to him even knowing he was a vampire that could easily kill her.
I also couldn´t believe that he didn´t even try to hurt her after she slapped him several times.
I am mean, he was a killer, but still he didn´t hurt her. After a while, I realized how deep the relationship between them really was.
She is the very first and the only one who could see behind his mask and didn´t see just a monster in him.
After 145 years, he found someone who believes in him and gave him a chance!
She is his humanity, and he gave her fire back that she lost after her parents died.
Damon would do anything to keep her alive; he would die for her.
She isn´t just his humanity, she is his home, and she is the only one he can trust.
Elena always forgives Damon and has the ability to understand him.Even while "hating" him, she still understands him.
For me Damon and Elena are the epic couple of TVD!
Jana ~ (Spuffy at heart)
I love DE for so many reasons and I know that I will forget half of them in this short text.
Their relationship is one of the most beautiful stories displayed on a TV show, and I will try to focus on what is the most important for me: their feelings.
Even though it was never easy for them to be together, and surely it won’t be easier in the future, they can’t stay apart.
And even if they often disagree, the love that they share is deep and strong.
Why? Because they share something special that is slowly built-up for 3 seasons.
Their lives are so intertwined now that I can’t imagine her life without him and him living without her.
Many people tell her that she shouldn’t trust him, and that he has many flaws.
And it’s right: he is far from being perfect.
But she doesn’t care, and she doesn’t need a perfect sweet vampire.
She sees how he has changed since the first time they met and she knows that she can rely on him. No matter what happens, he will always be there for her.
He just wants her to be happy and to live the life that she wants to have. And he needs her to accept him the way he is.
As for Damon, after being hurt during all his life, Elena is the first one who offered him her friendship and now her love.
She knows all the good things he has done for her.
She understands his feelings and insecurities. And now, she will fight for him because she wants him to know how deep she loves him the way he is.
To sum up, with each passing episode, I’m sure that they are meant to be together.

Then she felt a pair of strong arms folding around her,
and the heat abruptly got quite intense.
Damon was standing behind her, holding her,
and all at once she was very warm indeed.
"Their relationship continues to evolve; they've become increasingly comfortable around each other."
"I didn't want to see you get hurt, okay? I was worried about you."
"Damon, you can’t keep telling me that this isn’t real.
I know how I feel and that you feel it too, so stop fighting it."
"I promise you, I will never leave you again."
"What if there was no bump?"
"He would always choose Elena over anything, even himself."
If I’m being honest with myself,
I have to admit that he touches something deep inside me that makes me shiver—
a part of myself even I don’t understand.
● ● ●
There is no one word to truly describe what Damon and Elena mean to me.
They are the two strongest individuals on the show who are meant to be together. Their relationship has always been real, and they have overcome so many obstacles that only made their bond more everlasting.
In the fourth season, Damon and Elena finally come together as a couple.
Damon was the first one to accept Elena as a vampire, even before she did. He loves her both ways, as a human and as a vampire.
We have finally witnessed DEx, which of course I have been waiting for endlessly!
But my most favorite moment is when Elena finally tells Damon that she loves him. The big I LOVE YOU DAMON.
He has waited all of his life to hear those words uttered to him, and the girl of his dreams was the one to say it.
The look of shock and happiness on his face, and the way he looks up into the sky wondering if this moment is really happening was the best moment on the show, in my opinion.
I have shipped them from the very beginning of the series and I won’t ever stop. They both bring out the best in each other.
Elena brings out his humanity; she sees the good in him when no one else does.
And Damon brings out Elena’s fiery, passionate side.
He makes her laugh and helps her forget all the bad things in life at the moment.
You know that they will always be there for each other because that kind of love doesn’t go away.
Julia ~ (omgitsjulia<3)
Damon and Elena are known as Twin Flames, which means: "Twin flames, also called twin souls, are literally the other half of our soul."
We all have only one twin, the other half that completes you in every way possible.
I found these words to be very powerful and true when it comes to Damon and Elena.
These two balance each other out, bringing out feelings within themselves that they have chosen to keep locked away.
Apart, Elena can be serious and have the ability to take too much upon herself.
Damon on the other hand can be fun, yet dark, suppressing his human half.
Together, they balance each other out, Elena making Damon more human and Damon making Elena let go and just be herself.
Damon and Elena are two halves of a whole and that has been proven many times over the course of the show as well as the books, and for that, it is why my attraction is so strong, a pull and a force that has, and will, continue to only get stronger.

With one motion, he jerked her to safety. To himself. His
arms tightened around her, pressing her to the lean hardness of his body, and
suddenly Elena could see nothing. She was enveloped.
"How about that so-thick-you-could-cut-it-with-a-knife sexual tension between Damon and Elena?"
"It matters, and you know it."
"If you want to forget it happened, fine, but I can't."
"The bond affects how you act, not how you feel."
"I don't just want to throw them together tomorrow. I'd be sad. I want to see the kiss, I want to see the sweaty palms, I want to see it all go down."
~ Kevin Williamson
As his lips touched hers, his arm around her…changed somehow.
It was no longer trying to restrain her.
It seemed to be wanting to comfort her.
And when his other hand stroked her hair softly at the very ends,
crushing the waves gently,
and just as gently smoothing them out,
Elena felt a rush of shivering warmth.

Sticking to what I said in my initial testominial, Damon and Elena are perfect for each other.
They have grown so much as a pairing and as invidivuals since their first meeting.
When they're with each other they can be themselves: completely open with no BS.
Elena is the one that can get through Damon's seemingly unbreakable facade and bring out his more human side and Damon is the one that makes her laugh and protects her no matter what the cost.
Damon loves her and although she doesn't know it yet, she's on her way to loving him too.
They're fiery, passionate, fun, sexy, lovable, sweet and so much more.
I can't wait to see how their story continues to progress throughout the run of the show.
Kem ~ (naturellebella)
I love DE’s relationship because it is a real, fair and honest one.
They’re on the same level with each other.
Damon doesn’t treat Elena like a fragile baby, he treats her as his equal.
He is not scared of telling her when she’s wrong, he is not scared of upsetting her or making her angry, and so is she.
They confront each other, challenge each other and support each other in many ways.
Elena is Damon’s soul. She gave him a reason to live when he had none.
She believed in him when no one did, she saw the good in him when no one could, and just like that she became his entire universe.
He devoted himself to her safety and her happiness.
He is willing to do anything for her, to make her happy, even if it means he’ll have to watch her spending the rest of her life with his brother.
Damon is Elena’s lighthouse.
She may have not realized it yet, but he is her rock.
Whenever she is in trouble, when everything is falling apart, she calls him, she asks for his help, she needs him by her side.
And if he is not there, she feels his absence.
Right now, Damon is Elena’s constant, her ally, her teacher, her partner in crime, her savior, her confidant, her best friend.

I don’t know how I got here , she told him nonverbally.
In fact, she didn’t remember anything before this,
before awakening to his call, only jumbled images.
It doesn’t matter. I’m with you.
Fear seized her. This isn’t…just a dream, is it?
No dream is just a dream. And I’m with you always.
But how did we get here?
Shhh. You’re tired. I’ll hold you up. On my life, I swear it.
Just rest. Let me hold you just once.
"I love you, Elena… and it’s because I love you that…
I can’t be selfish with you, and why you can’t know this."
"Because I love you. Because you love me.
You'd do anything for me, so please... do this for me."
"It's our job to protect history"
