Being Human

Stefan is wrong; there’s nothing human left in him. Moreover, he doesn’t miss it -- humanity, with its ridiculous belief in something better; humanity, with its insistence on hope in the face of all evidence to the contrary.

Damon is a simple monster; he savors the simple pleasures, the finest being the rush of hot blood tinged with fear blooming in his mouth. 

Yet here he stands, a shadow over her bed and her dreams. Instead of tasting the wounded-bird fluttering of her heart, he strokes her cheek, replaying her words: “I’m sorry...You lost her, too.”

Stefan is wrong.

I hope you continue getting into this fandom because OMG THE FIC. :)

I'm a total noob to TVD, so you'll have to point me to the good fic, please! :) (If you have time, of course.) And I really am enjoying the show so far; I wasn't sure I would.

OMG please keep watching so that you can gift us with awesome fanfic. So far, TVD doesn't seem to be generating the kind of consistently fantastic fic that I'm used to in my previous fandoms... and maybe it's that I just can't find it or it's not being written for my 'ship. It's not that there isn't a lot of fic... I just haven't been able to find a lot of GOOD fic.

That moment with Damon at the end... that was the moment I become irrevocably hooked on the show. I love your turn of phrase here the rush of hot blood tinged with fear blooming in his mouth.
and Instead of tasting the wounded-bird fluttering of her heart . Really fabulous imagery.

Hi there! How are you? It's been a while...

Thanks for reading this -- and commenting on it. :) ♥ I'm a noob when it comes to TVD, so there's a certain amount of anxiety about writing in a new fandom. I'm glad the imagery worked for you.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you ship Damon/Elena? *g* I am still ship-neutral at this point, but I know that will change.

It sucks that you haven't been able to find much good fic for TVD; I was hoping you could rec me some. Perhaps you should try writing some. ;)

I'm surprised by how much I like this show. It's got its fangs in me now. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Thank you again for commenting. It's good to "see" you again. I think you disappeared for a while.

ahhhh damon angst. so delish.

Oh, this is so good. It just adds that extra oomph to that scene. I completely believe that Damon was thinking that when he was in her room that night. Loved it!

Thanks very much! I'm really happy that this rang true to you; it's scary writing in a new fandom. :)

I love this!! the writing was so poetic and the scene you chose to center this around was one of my all time favorites, great stuff :)

Thank you so much! So pleased you enjoyed this. And I agree that it's an amazing scene. :)

[grin] This was exactly the point in the show when my mind started flying with Damon fic-let possibilities. It's this depth that makes him as interesting (potentially) as Spike from BtVS was to me, before we knew his full history.

And, as always, your lyrical writing is a pleasure to read.
