Of course Damon is enough to trigger Bonnie’s magic. Because Damon has ALWAYS been the catalyst to Bonnie’s magic. Straight from the start of the show.
Straight from when Damon flew right into Bonnie’s windshield when she was driving and Bonnie had a premonition about a crow and about how things were going to change. Bonnie’s magic literally surfaced with the arrival of Damon back to Mystic Falls. Bonnie found out she was a witch because of Damon’s presence in her life. Because he grabbed her necklace and she went running home to Grams looking for answers. She found out what it meant to be a Bennett because of Damon. And every single time that Bonnie’s powers weren’t strong enough, who was always there to give her motivation?
Not to mention, Damon is connected to her magic because he MADE SURE HER WITCHES LINE LIVED ON. Like. Of course it’s Damon. Of course it’s no one else but him. It just makes so much sense to me. You know how Bamon shippers think Bonnie helps Damon to understand his humanity? Well, Damon helps Bonnie to understand her supernatural side.
How much more fucking perfect can they get for one another?
I’m going to go there. I’m going to talk about this. Because I couldn’t have been the only person yesterday who noticed the physicality of Damon and Bonnie’s argument. And it bothered me. It bothered me because I liked it. And I was mad at myself for liking it. Because I can’t like abuse. And I don’t like abuse. Because if I did, I would have shipped the left side of this gifset. So why was it that Bonnie and Damon’s argument made me feel things about this show and these characters that I never thought would resurface ever again? It’s because there’s a difference in these two sets of characters. One of these is abuse where there is a clear abuser and a clear victim, and the other one is passion where there are two people who are feeling anger, desperation, hopelessness, betrayal, hurt, rage and love all mixed into one huge unadulterated slab of emotion. But it’s more than just knowing the difference. Damon shoved Bonnie, Bonnie shoved Damon. They are both willing participants. They are both equal. There is no victim. No one is taking advantage of a weaker person. Bonnie and Damon are both equally responsible for the shit that they are handing to one another. But it’s not even that really. It’s the fact that when she shoves him, Damon is physically affected by it. But he’s stronger than her, isn’t he? He’s a vampire. He can hold his ground. And yet, when she hits him, he stumbles back from the force of her blow. Do you notice how that doesn’t happen in the first gifset? And it’s not because Damon is any less strong with Bonnie. It is literally only because DAMON IS LETTING HER. Damon is LETTING HER SHOVE HIM. Damon is LETTING HER GET HER ANGER OUT. Damon is LETTING HER FEEL THAT EMOTION. And Damon is AFFECTED BY HER EMOTION. There are no words on the left side. But there are words on the right. It’s for a reason. It’s because Damon is actually LISTENING to what Bonnie is saying and he’s internalizing it. And that stumble that he takes when she shoves him isn’t because of the blow from her physical strength. It’s because of the blow from her WORDS. Because HE CARES. He cares that he’s hurting her. He cares that she’s near tears. Her words are getting to him so much that he doesn’t have time to build up his vamp abilities or showcase a macho display of strength. He’s too taken with the truth that she is dishing out to him. And it’s always been this way. Bonnie’s words have ALWAYS affected Damon, but this scene. This scene is everything. He’s angry at her when he shoves her. He’s agitated. He’s frustrated. But how is Bonnie even able to make him feel that? Because he feels absolutely nothing on the left. Not one care. Not one regret. Not one concern. But with Bonnie, there is actual, genuine regret. There is sincere concern for her. Because Bonnie is his EQUAL. I said it all the way back in Season Two. That Damon has UNCONSCIOUSLY accepted Bonnie as his equal. And it couldn’t be any clearer than these two scenes placed side by side. That is why his guard is down with her. That is why her words get to him. That is why she makes him angry and remorseful. That is why he stumbles back when she hits him. Because he chose her as his equal. MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY. Damon chose Bonnie as his equal. So he can’t stand there and let her fist hit his rock hard chest while he is unaffected and doesn’t give a shit. No. Her shove will hurt him. Her words will hurt him. Her pain will hurt him. Because she is his match. His equal. So those words and that pain is a direct CHALLENGE for him. Do you see the challenge on the left side? Can you see the challenge? Where is it? It’s not there. I say again, as I said way back in Season Two. Damon may be in love with Elena. But he has already unconciously chosen Bonnie as his soulmate. So keep on bringing Delena. Because it will never amount to what Bonnie and Damon are to each other. And because, I too don’t mind a challenge ;)
remember when everyone thought ted and robin would never be endgame
*dead* for happiness!!! I love comics and manga, especially Chibis!!! If we can have the Bamon manga it would be really awesome!!! XDDDDD <3
It doesnt matter they died, i think the Sirebond damaged Elena BIG TIME,and caused sideffects, and now that Alaric is looking for the moment she fell in love with Damon, it’s the chance to explain a lot of things….. i mean if i was a writer it would be a good opportunity.
Vampire Diaries S06E01 ❋ Bonnie who?
Since Alaric is looking for the moment Elena “fell in love” with Damon, am i the only one who thought that maybe they will revisit the time Elena “was” sired to Damon ? (could explain a lot if she still is, just saying). There is a world between being attracted to someone, to like someone, and to be In Love. I never bought Elena being in love with Damon.
So basically Elena’s grieving the death of Damon harder than she grieved her parents, Jenna, Jeremy, Alaric, Bonnie, and Stefan….?
Because yes TVD this makes so much sense 😒
