that is so fuckin’ romantic 
(2/4) songs – damon/katherine, the vampire diaries

"bloodstream" by stateless (x) 
the spaces in between, two minds and all the places they have been, the spaces in between, I tried to put my finger on it … I think I might’ve inhaled you, I can feel you behind my eyes, you gotten into my bloodstream, I can feel you flowing in me.

I think that The Vampire Diaries is really terrible about music choices for the most part, but this Stateless song is one shining example of how to luck into using a pop song just right.  Its moody and hypnotic energy really drives and elevates this scene.

katherine:  [As Elena.] What are you doing here?
damon:  A failed and feeble attempt at doing the right thing.
katherine:  [As Elena.] Which was?
damon:  It’s not important.

This scene is so stunning and so subtly complex.  It’s secretly written from Katherine’s point of view, but you don’t know that until you watch it again knowing who it really is studying Damon intensely, assessing him, playing him … and the only clue is the song!  Damon has no idea that something is off when it comes to “Elena,” but he does know that something is shifting inside himself that he cannot fully grasp and would like to ignore.  It’s Katherine who reaches out and ever so precisely roots out the source of this perplexing change in her sweet, innocent Damon: a new love, a new purpose.  (And now she’ll punish him for it.)

Ugh, that is so fucking romantic.
