Omg you just reminded me that I never finished my 30 days. I'll have to get onto that.

You do that! :D

"No rules, Stefan. Don't you remember? No rules." I just.

This quote didn't even occur to me here. It's awesome, but it's repeated in several episodes, so I don't associate it with any particular episode. This line is, like, the essence of Katherine, especially the way Nina says it. Wonderful :D.

I'm thinking of the end of 305. He is so fucking open with Elena right there. And it's quite shocking, because he's been closed for so long. But I will never leave you... it was SO BARE.

Yes, he is quite open there, but he's not saying much about himself. Now that I think about it, in s3 Damon has moments in which he stops putting up a show when he's with Elena (like in 3x09; he just has an outburst of anger in front of her, and he hardly ever smashes things in front of other people), but he isn't very verbal about it. He doesn't give speeches the way he used to in s2 ("This could be our defining moment"; "I don't deserve you"; "I'm having an existential crisis"). He just sits there, says a word or two, and lets her see. Which is an interesting twist I'm not entirely sure how to read yet. On one hand, Damon used those speeches to stage things, so him being silent might be more honest that him expressing his feelings verbally. On the other hand, he doesn't really help Elena understand, he just hides behind this silence. Knowing Damon, probably both things are happening at the same time, because he is so contradictory that he could actually make such a contradiction work for him.

For realsies.

I regret nothing.
