↳Damon and Elena as Anastasia and Dimitri.
‘I’m in love now’
I still cannot get over this scene. Because, look at Elena’s face when she tells him ‘you’. Although she knows he loves her and he would turn over the world again and again for her, she is still nervous about admitting her feelings. Because this is not just a simple ‘you’. This is Elena’s way of saying “I choose you, I love you.”, without actually saying it. This word holds so much meaning that she just whispers it gently, because no matter what she’s still afraid of Damon’s reaction. She is revealing her heart in front of him and she is scared. Now look at Damon’s face in the second one. He can’t believe it, he’s completely still, his smile disappears and he just freezes. Because he understands what Elena is saying to him, but he can’t accept it. He thinks she’s kidding, he can’t believe he has been chosen for the first time in almost 200 years, that for the first time it’s him. And then they change the focus back on Elena. And she doesn’t say she’s kidding. She isn’t saying anything. She just looks at him. In a way he never believed she would look at him, the woman he loves with his whole being. And she’s right there, and so much love is shining through her eyes. And then in the last gif you can see all those emotions, you can see everything in his eyes - he’s surpised, shocked, amazed and most of all happy - you can see Damon’s happiness all over Ian’s face. And it’s priceless, this little moment is priceless. Because this is the scene where they both admit their feelings for each other without using words. And I don’t know what I should applaud more - the flawless writing, or the flawless acting.
We play, not knowing what we do.
Children’s games, which make us all laugh.
Who would have thought that is the part of where it all started.
This is where we fell in love.
