Summary: This is a tag for the 2x10 scene in which Damon confronts Elena during her attempt to surrender to Klaus. Yeah, you know which one I'm talking about. *g*

 

Dirty Little Secret

I go wild cause you break me open
Wild cause you left me here
I go wild
...

Wild when the waves start to break
And God knows they're breaking in me now...

Wild 'cause it doesn't make sense
For me to cry out in my own defense
Wild 'cause I would do anything
To tear you off your precious fence

~ Poe - Wild

“Get your ass out the door before I throw you over my shoulder and carry you out myself.” Firmly, but still careful not to bruise, Damon grasped Elena's upper arm.

“No.” One small word, carrying a wealth of foolhardy determination he admired in spite of himself. When Elena found his grip unmovable, she struggled, throwing a desperate but clumsy punch with her free arm.

He caught it, so easily it would have been laughable:  if every cell in his dead body wasn’t screaming for him to throw her over his shoulder and take her home, to his bed, and keep her there, chained, if necessary, while he showed her exactly why she couldn’t go sacrificing her precious life.

Not for Stefan. Not for Jeremy. Not for Jenna, or Bonnie, or himself.

For some unfathomable reason, he was one of the legion she cared about; he saw that, even if he didn’t understand it. It meant something -- more than he would ever admit to anyone. Elena had faced down vampire and witch alike to preserve his worthless existence. He would rip out his own heart before he’d let her continue on her well-intentioned suicide mission.

There was no nobility in this on his part, just selfishness. He could not abide a world without her in it. Would not. One day she would die, with a map of her life written in the skin of her hands and face, but today was not that day, and by then he would be ready to go, too, or to keep her with him for all of eternity.

Granted, it would make his un-life so much simpler yet admittedly less interesting if Elena had an ounce of self-preservation. But he liked the fire she possessed, the steel core hidden by her soft curves, sweet smiles, and old-soul eyes the color of lovingly aged whiskey.

Still gripping her tiny fist, dwarfing it with his own, Damon leaned in, his movements deliberate, letting Elena feel his leashed strength. Until her breath came in jagged gasps misting warm against his face. “Don’t ever do that again,” he said in a rough whisper, swallowing hard as their gazes met and locked, until those coal-black lashes of hers fluttered closed and then open again. They stood so close her heartbeat was a hammer in his own chest. For an illusory moment, he felt alive. Truly alive.

Every unnecessary breath he took carried her scent to him: a sour top note of fear, a sharp middle note of adrenalin, and a musky base note that had him pressing his hips into her before he could think better of it -- arousal.

He knew her dirty little secret now, and he would guard it as closely as he guarded his own -- for the moment. Reluctantly he eased away, marking her with his eyes.

Elena Gilbert wanted him.

Two quotes i treasure most "They stood so close her heartbeat was a hammer in his own chest. For an illusory moment, he felt alive. Truly alive." and "Elena Gilbert wanted him." simple, honest and to the point. I feel privileged having read this before going to sleep.

Thank you :D

Thank you. I enjoyed writing this, so I'm happy you enjoyed reading it, too. :) Thanks, also, for pointing out some specific sentences that hit you just right. I appreciate your taking the time to do that.

I'm going to sound like a whining child but I don't care. You're writing will probably keep me sane during TVD's upcoming dry spill. I don't know if I can go through it without biting someone's head off.

I'll do what I can. :) BTW, how long WILL TVD be on hiatus?

count them.. F-I-V-E WEEKS!!!!!! five freakin' weeks. They'll be back on Jan 27th!!! oh dear God!!!

you know what would be good? a sequel where something comes of that wanting. cause you are sort of making me ship delana. =)

cause you are sort of making me ship delana. =)

WHAT?! My evil plan is working. *g*

I will see what I can do, my friend.

I loved that. Very beautiful how you wrote the wonderful scenes even more fantastic.
And I love the last sentence.
I hope that you write something that shows just what Damon would do with Elena, because that would just be perfect.
Wonderful job. :)

Thanks very much! I'm pleased you read and enjoyed this. :)

I hope that you write something that shows just what Damon would do with Elena, because that would just be perfect.

I'll see what I can do.

Just as brilliant as all the others!! You breathed even more life to an already intense scene, so many lines here I loved:

They stood so close her heartbeat was a hammer in his own chest. For an illusory moment, he felt alive. Truly alive.

"He knew her dirty little secret now, and he would guard it as closely as he guarded his own -- for the moment. Reluctantly he eased away, marking her with his eyes."

Gosh I seriously hope you write more Damon/Elena, you'd make my sad exam plagued life worth living :( Okay, jk... to an extent lol :p

Sorry you're going through exam hell. :( Good luck, and I'm happy if I was able to distract you from the stress for just a minute.

Thank you for reading and feeding. Writing in a new fandom can be a tad scary, so your comments are reassuring. :) And thanks for pointing out specific lines that you liked. For a writer, it's interesting to get that kind of feedback from readers. ♥

Damon/Elena are eating my brain, so I'm sure I'll be writing more about them.

Thanks again for stopping by!

There was so much tension between these 2 in this episode I was having a hard time not totally fangirling in front of my boss as I watched it in the office (late night). They both looked at each other's lips as he was holding her fist and it was so delicious to think that he could just lean in and the world would explode in Dalena happiness. LOL

My fave bit.

There was no nobility in this on his part, just selfishness. He could not abide a world without her in it. Would not. One day she would die, with a map of her life written in the skin of her hands and face, but today was not that day, and by then he would be ready to go, too, or to keep her with him for all of eternity.

So utterly heartbreaking and romantic.

First of all, I love your icon. *g*

Congrats on your restraint in front of your boss; you're stronger than I would have been. :D

..it was so delicious to think that he could just lean in and the world would explode in Dalena happiness.

Ah, yes, this exactly. The UST was phenomenal. Whew.

So utterly heartbreaking and romantic.

Thank you for taking the time to leave me such generous feedback. I really do appreciate it!

I love my icon. Sometimes, I get mesmerized by it and bob my eyebrows along with it. LOL

If there had been a kiss, my boss would've been laughing for days, because there's no way I could control myself after that. Notice I said totally fangirling, cause there was some definite fangirling going on at the thought of a kiss. LMAO

I always try to review/comment on a fic I read. I know how hard it is to try to put your ideas out to the world and fear rejection. How hard it is to just get it out at all. I can never seem to get past the "That would soooo work for a fic," obsess over it for days, but never actually write anything stage. LOL

Sometimes, I get mesmerized by it and bob my eyebrows along with it.

LMAO

Damon makes it hard not to do a bit of fangirling, doesn't he? *g*

Yup, you're right; it IS hard to write and share. I have all kinds of neuroses about writing, and I occasionally manage to see past them enough to get something out and posted. :) If you want to write something, this is me encouraging you to do it. Writing can be painful, infuriating, and SO MUCH FUN. Sorry, don't mean to lecture you. I just feel very strongly about encouraging people to express themselves through writing if they have even the smallest impulse to do so.

I've tried to get a couple of ideas out, but can never seem to finish them. Back during my obsessed with Jacob/Bella days. LOL IDK, maybe I'll be inspired by Dalena one of these days and actually finish something.

HA! Wish you could've seen my fangirling when I thought Damon/Elena kissed on "Founder's Day." I had ignored all the signs saying it was Kat, and I was devastated when my heart was crushed into smithereens. Let's not even talk about the sobbing I did on "The Return" or "Rose" for him. LOL

Ooooh my! The hip press did me in. *becomes mush*

p.s. I love your metaphors in your writing! Unique.

Ha! Glad the hip press worked for you. ;) Can't you just see Damon doing that?

I love your metaphors in your writing!

Thank you -- both for saying that, and just for reading and commenting. It's always nice when someone does that. I know it takes a little more time than reading without leaving feedback, so I sincerely appreciate the effort.

This was wonderful.

with a map of her life written in the skin of her hands and face

I want to marry this line and have its babies.

Aww... Thank you SO MUCH. ♥ You've made my morning. :)

Brilliant. Those two just have ignition points at the worst moments.




Thank you.

Those two just have ignition points at the worst moments.

Ha! Agreed. Terrible timing. :)

Wow, you really improved on an already phenomenal scene! Your writing is wonderful and I hope to read plenty more from you during the awful TVD dry spell coming up.

Your comments are very kind, and I really, really appreciate your taking the time to leave them. ♥ So thank you!

...I hope to read plenty more from you during the awful TVD dry spell coming up.

If I can oblige, I certainly will. :) I'm not looking forward to the hiatus either, especially when I only discovered the show so recently.

"He knew her dirty little secret now, and he would guard it as closely as he guarded his own -- for the moment. Reluctantly he eased away, marking her with his eyes."

OMG! I loved that line so much. This was awesome and you captured it perfectly. I saw that too. I am sooooooo happy you are doing fic for Delena. You're inspiring me to possibly post some of my stuff.

*hugs hugs*


*big hugs* Thank you, sweetie. ♥

Wasn't that scene rife with UST? Whew.

You're inspiring me to possibly post some of my stuff.

Do it! :D

He knew her dirty little secret now, and he would guard it as closely as he guarded his own -- for the moment. Reluctantly he eased away, marking her with his eyes.

Nyagh... er, that was the strangled sound of HOLY GOD THAT WAS SEXY. Thanks for sharing!

You're very welcome. Glad you enjoyed it. ;) And thank YOU for reading and commenting.

I love it. Again, this is the sort of thing I wish could come out in the tv show. It's portrayed so wonderfully here. Also, the musician in me glees at the chord metaphor of fear-adrenaline-arousal. Gorgeous, gorgeous.
