When it’s all said and done, they all get the chance to move on. Elena and Stefan decide to stay in Mystic Falls for a few years more—it’s her home, after all. Tyler kisses Caroline one last time and tells her that, while he may love her, they both know it’ll never really work, and he’s right.

Matt forgives her for all the secrets and lies but not for what she is, and he moves to parts unknown to escape the supernatural element that is Mystic Falls and Bonnie and Jeremy end up going to Canada together once Jeremy’s finished with school. And Damon…well, Damon had bolted the minuet Klaus was dead. So, with out a real plan for the first time in her life, Caroline decides to travel to Europe for a while.

Time passes and Caroline never does return home. She can’t bear to watch everyone she loves die around her while she continues to remain seventeen.

Tyler visits her in Paris when he’s thirty six. He’s unmarried and unattached and he tells her he loves her, and the get a little carried away in her apartment. He’s gone the next day and she doesn’t hear a word about him until his suicide two years later.

She hears of her mother’s death through Bonnie and she hears of Bonnie’s through Jeremy. After Jenna’s death, Jeremy visits her in Milan for a few weeks. He’s fifty six and it’s weird for her, but somehow, she still thinks of him as her best friend’s kid brother.

Caroline sets him on a quest to find Elena and Stefan and he instantly brightens at the thought of seeing his sister who, it would seem, had fallen off all of their grids after she was turned at eighteen.

Ten years later, it’s Elena who comes to tell her that Jeremy’s passed away. Caroline cries. “Who’s left?” she asks herself late one night.

“Well, there’s me,” a voice whispers back from outside her large open window.

Caroline’s eyes open wide. “Damon!” she cries, rushing over to the window where he’s seated himself. “Where have you been? What are you doing here?”

There are other questions she wants to ask, but even after more than seventy years, she remembers how much he hates when she asks too many questions.

He lets her embrace him and she feels him sigh in something so close to contentment that it shocks her. “Here and there. I thought I’d check up on my favorite Vampire Barbie. Imagine my surprise when I find her crying herself to sleep.”

He reaches between them and gently wipes away the tears on her face.

She doesn’t really know what to say to that so she just hugs him closer and closes her eyes. He picks her up after a moment, whispers something about the wood being hazardous, and tucks them both into her king size bed. She falls asleep the moment his arms wrap protectively around her.

Early the next morning, when he’s asleep and she’s awake again, she smiles softly. “I’m glad you found me,” she whispers and kisses his forehead before moving to his lips.

Summary:  FutureFic! “Eventually he’ll take too much from you,” Stefan says to her one day.

Damon only comes to her when Elena goes back to Stefan. Three hundred years down the line, and the pattern remains true. Damon messes up, Elena runs to Stefan, and Damon comes crawling back to her.

Caroline welcomes into her bed because she can’t help herself. He always looks so incredibly broken that she feels the need to comfort him. Between her and Damon, comfort only comes in the form of sexual gratification, and she can’t deny that it truly is gratifying between them.

He often stays for less than a week. He drinks all her booze and hardly lets her wear more than some skimpy lingerie but she never kicks him out afterward.

She always knows when he’s leaving. The sex is always particularly desperate and final on the last night of her stay. On the following mornings, she wakes up to silence in her apartment and a note by her pillow. It holds an address she’ll never go to.

She tucks the piece of paper into her nightstand with the rest and cries into her pillow.

She calls Stefan that afternoon. “Can we go bunny hunting?” she asks.

Stefan never asks, but she assumes he knows. “Eventually he’ll take too much from you,” Stefan says to her one day, proving her theory, “and you won’t be you anymore.”

It’s probably true, Caroline knows, but she convinces herself he’ll eventually be kind enough to give it all back to her.

Summary:  It would be the last time she looked so carefree after the accident, although he hadn’t known it at the time.
A/N:  For a [info]tvd_rareships Comment Fic Party prompt by [info]summerofsoaps. Originally posted HERE.

For reasons neither would ever know, Elena called Tyler after the accident—after she got out of the hospital.

She never called him before, and her name wasn’t even programmed into his phone, but he had this feeling, and he picked up and she was crying, and he just…it was Elena. What other reason did he need to drop everything and drive all over town looking for her?

He found her walking barefoot on the side of one of Mystic Falls’ back roads. It was raining, and there was water dripping from her hair, her clothes were soaked—she looked like a drowned rat—but he could still clearly see the tear-stains on her face.

“Get in the car, Gilbert,” he said when he pulled up beside her. “I’ll take you home.”

She shook her head. “I don’t want to go home—it isn’t…it isn’t home anymore—not now that they’re….”

She started crying, then, and Tyler instinctively got out of his car and went over to her. He reached for her and tried to pull her close, but she shook him off.

“I told you,” she said. “I can’t go home.”

He shrugged. “Let’s go, then. I know a place not far from here. We can get out of the rain.” He pressed the lock button on his keys and started off in the opposite direction from the road.

“Tyler!” she called, her feet rooted in place.

“Come on, Gilbert,” he called over his shoulder. “The storm’s only going to get worse.”

She didn’t need to be told twice, and he heard her feet racing to catch up with his.

He ran, then, and he took her through the grassy field, through the muddy puddles, down to the spot on what he knew to be the edge of the Fell’s old property. He ran, with her behind him, until he couldn’t hear her sniffling any longer, and then slowed down slightly.

She just got faster, and he had stopped and watched her for a moment. It would be the last time she looked so carefree after the accident, although he hadn’t known it at the time.

Finally, she had turned to him. “You were gonna show me something, Lockwood?”

He shook himself out of his thoughts. “Yeah, it’s right over there.”

He took the lead again, this time with her hand locked in his, and they sat in this little shed on the Fell property while the storm raged outside. Her head in his lap, he felt her breath warm and cool his knee as she breathed in and out. He played with her hair, untangling it as best he could, although that was something he hadn’t much experience in, so he was by no means an expert.

He rested his head against the wall and they both feel asleep like that. Him sitting up against a rickety old wooden wall, her in his lap. And in the morning, neither left for hours because they knew that once they stepped foot outside, their world was going to change and they weren’t going to get this innocence back.


Title:  One Way Or Another

Pairing/Characters:  John/Jenna
Rating:  PG

Summary:  The conversation that could have been, if John had been the one to tell the truth about Isobel.
A/N:  For a [info]tvd_rareships Comment Fic Party prompt by [info]amoenavi.Originally posted HERE.

“Alaric said Isobel’s dead,” Jenna starts when John enters the Mystic Grill.

John nods. “And he’s right; she is dead.”

Jenna sits down across from him and sighs. “Except she’s not. She showed up at the house last night.”

This time John sighs. “There are things you don’t know, Jenna…things I don’t even know how to explain.”

“You could try.”

John looks at her—messy hair, watery eyes, trembling lip—and realizes he has no other choice. Someone has to tell her, after all and he had a feeling long ago that it would have to be him. “Isobel is dead, Alaric didn’t lie about that. The thing is, when you hear the word dead, you think ‘in the ground,’ but some of us here in this lovely town called Mystic Falls think ‘vampire.”

After a long, whispered explanation and a hell of a lot of questions for a woman who’s clearly drunk, Jenna’s eyes widen almost comically. “You set this in motion—forced Ric to make a choice.”

John nods—what else can he do. “One way or another, you deserved to know."
