Damon’s face after being told by Katherine she never loved him vs. Damon’s face when Elena tells him she’s in love with him. Notice how both happen in the parlour of the boarding house, and when Katherine says she never loved him, the room is dark and the fire isn’t on. When Elena tells him she loves him, the fire is lit.
If there was any justice in the pop culture world, Nina Dobrev would hear her name mentioned alongside Claire Danes, Julianne Margulies and the rest of The Emmy nominees for Best Actress in a Drama because her work throughout the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries is more than worthy of acting’s biggest honor.
Not only did Dobrev continue to breathe life into two distinctly different characters, but because Elena Gilbert spent season four in so many different mental states, it’s more like she created two dozen distinctly different characters! Although the one constant in each of these incarnations was her ability to ground heightened drama in a powerfully emotional place."
When a man is super devoted to his GF/Wife : Oh, he loves her so much!
When a woman is super devoted to her BF/Husband : She’s regressive, submissive, desperate.
WHY this distinction?! Don’t you “progressive” people realise this is another way of glorifying the man?
Oh I love it. I don’t know what that is but yeah, I’ll just nod.
I love you, Damon.
Would you believe I’m having a bad day?
