author’s note || why are there no tessa imagines
hand in hand with your longtime crush/best friend, tessa bennett as you wonder down the festive streets of new orleans together. your eyes twinkled with adoration as you see the sparkling lights strawn up and even though you're a 1000+ vampire, you still had your inner child in you. the houses of new orleans were decorated with colorful lights and many christmas decorations. you had just finished coming out of the 5th store, grabbing the best ornaments and decorations for your house. returning back home, you see your family speeding around the house, apparently hope had gotten everyone in the christmas spirit. "aunty [name]! you're back," hope sees you standing by the doorway, hands full with christmas decorations. your siblings help take the stuff out of your hands and got back to work.
"uhh, what is that? that's a mistletoe and you know what you have to do." the 15 year old cheekily grins at you and tessa. you felt yourself flush and tessa did the same. you turned to her. "i'm so sorry, tessa. hope, just li-" tessa cuts you off, grabbing the neck of your shirt pulling you into an electrifying kiss. her lips were soft like blankets and sweet like honey, you could savour her lips for days. you pulled away quickly still shocked but tessa lips form a frown at this; didn't you like the kiss or did you just see as her best friend.
taking the advantage of tessa's sour face, you pulled her in for another kiss, ignoring your siblings. pulling away from the magnificent kiss, you made eye-contact with her. with everything that happened with silas, you thought that tessa gave up on ever finding love again but you were very wrong. of course, she wanted sweet revenge on amara and silas for hurting her but than she soon fell in love with you. you heard whistling coming from behind you breaking the silence and gazing from you and tessa. hope's eyes filled with adoration, seeing that her aunt has finally found love again.
"bugger off, kol." you rolled your eyes, an english accent present in your tone. and from that moment on your relationship with tessa bennett blossomed into something more better than it was before and you were content with that. this christmas, you'll have someone to cuddle with you instead of your siblings. you'll make christmas cookies with her by your side, wake up in the morning melting into tessa's soft comfort. you just hoped that she would handle the endless teasing from your siblings as they would never let you live it down.
decorating the christmas tree was a fun task since this was your first time. you were mostly excited as hope when you started to take out the ornaments out of the boxes. hope finally placed a huge star on top of the tree, all of the lights still unplugged. freya turned the lights all and you all stood there in astonishment watching the lights glow. you were impressed of how good you all decorated the house, there was almost a christmas wreath on every door in the house and mistletoe so nobody's safe from them.
you were dressed for head to toe in christmas clothes, a matching pajamas with tessa. the pants of your pajamas had a tiny reindeer tail on the back. and night slippers of reindeers, sure you looked ridiculous but hope pulled out the puppy eyes on you and who couldn't resist those. but hey, you should have seen niklaus, he was dressed in a actual santa claus outfit with the fake beard and fake belly too. the rest of the siblings couldn't stop laughing at him in the costume. the original hybrid huffed in annoyance now knowing that you'll all be spending next year christmas daggered in a box. luckily, he didn't wear it to sleep and changed into christmas pajamas like everyone else.
after the lightning of the christmas tree, everyone cuddled up to their significant other watching many romance christmas movies. when you guys were through movie number 5, everyone was out like a light all huddled up on the couch or floor. the mikaelson manor was finally at peace for once, to your surprise.
the scent of hot cocoa aroumed around the house. you got off the couch missing tessa's comfort that her body would provide you with. speeding to the kitchen you found tessa's making hot chocolate as she swung her hips. "mmm...morning." you stated wrapping your arms around tessa's waist. she replied with a hum as you placed a kiss on her cheek. swaying your hips to the christmas instrumental which played lowly on the tv. you spun her around like cinderella so close that you're basically touching noses and she lets out a tiny gasp. shocking you, she spun you around so your back is facing her front against the kitchen counter, she starts placing wet kisses on your neck. turning your head to the opposite side as she starts making dark love bites on your neck making you moan in pleasure.
"come on you two. it's present time." rebekah shouted, scaring you both as she passed you two in the kitchen. "just save the snogging for later." she mumbles and only you two can hear it, you both laugh as you cover your hair as best as possible. you both walked in the living room to see everyone trying to figure who's present is which. "hot cocoa for everyone. with a dash of blood." you handed everyone their mug of hot cocoa with whipped cream and toppings like; marshmallows, bits of cinnamon. they all thanked you, taking a sip of their drinks.
hope thought that it would be a great idea to do secret santa this year so you all agreed to do it not wanting to disappoint the tribid. you found a spot near tessa onto the couch, your legs over her lap as you pass around christmas presents. klaus gave you a eyebrow wiggle with an amused grin on his face, as he nods his head to the dark brown hickey. throwing a pillow at him but he caught before it could hit his face. yep, you were great, you had your family and the girl of your dreams. what more could you ask for?

summary || [name] is dating elena but katherine catches her eyes on [name] as well, pretending to be elena just to hang out with [name]. a few days later, elena admits to cheating and harshly dumps [name] leaving her in a bad mental space. katherine comes clean and confesses that she isn't elena which takes [name] by surprise and katherine whisks her away from mystic falls. when [name] is gone the gang is worried that something happened to [name] but she comes back, working with katherine and now dating her.
you were dating the young doppelgänger, elena gilbert. yeah she was a little distant on some days and other days, she was like a whole new person. you were supposed to be on a date for your 1st year anniversary but as usual elena wasn't there, you called up her aunt jenna and she said that elena was at the salvatore house so you thanked the aunt and hung up. now in the salvatore house, you were to find your girlfriend not knowing that you would get her heart broken. walking up farther up the stairs, you heard moaning coming from one of the rooms, you paid no attention to it thinking that it was damon and some random girl. you wondered in the salvatore house looking for your girlfriend until you saw her walking out of damon's room with an oversized shirt on.
you furrowed your eyebrows, "elena? what are you doing here?" elena froze hearing your voice but as things couldn't get worse, a shirtless damon walked out of the room saying, "babe. wanna go for round 2?" you could literally feel your heart shattered inside of you. damon looked at you and walked back inside of his room. you were in so much shock and betrayal that you didn't even notice elena had grabbed you roughly by your wrist, dragging you downstairs in the living room. you tried to steady your voice as you think of what to say, "h-how could you? i've been a good girlfriend to you and this is the thanks i get." elena rolls her eyes before speaking, "yeah, i admitted it. i cheated on you with damon, i've been using you to make damon jealous. truth is, i've never cared about you." elena admitted to you, no regret in her tone.
elena tilts her head sideways, "oh, are you hurt now." she says in a baby-like tone. soon your fury turned to rage and before you knew it, elena falls limp on the ground as her neck was snapped. damon walks in and before he could say anything you snapped his neck with the wave of his hand and stormed out of the salvatore residence. you cried yourself to sleep the next day and soon those days turned into weeks. bonnie and caroline didn't know that elena was cheating on you and they were furious with the young doppelgänger, how could elena do such a thing to you. your mental health was getting so bad to the point that you wouldn't even eat or leave your bed. bonnie and caroline were worried about you very much so they took you to the grill saying that if you don't eat, they will spoon feed you. so, you ate with them, laughing at their jokes and went on a girls shopping trip. they made your day better as best friends should, you were grateful to have friends like them. you completely forgot about elena and the cheating fiasco until you saw her with flowers in her hand in front of your house.
you stormed up to elena and gave her one good slap across her face, the nerve she had to show to your house as if she didn't break your heart a few days ago. but than you took in her features, she had curly hair, elena doesn't like curly hair so she always straightens it. elena didn't seem affect by the slap you gave her and she handed the flowers to you, you looked down to see [favorite flowers]. "why are you here, elena?" katherine's eyebrows furrowed at the hostilely in your tone, she thought that you would be happy to see her. not really her but her dopplewash, elena. you let out a scoff folding your arms when she doesn't answer your question. "elena. what kind of shit are you pulling with me? you fuck damon and except me to forgive just like that." ok now, katherine was really confused. she would never sleep with damon if she's madly in love with you. "i don't know what you're talking about, [name]. it's our 2 year anniversary and i wanted to surprise you." katherine spoke in a calmly matter. maybe now it was time to tell you the truth about her.
"you were the one who cheated on me! you harshly dumped me! is there something wrong with you?" you informed the brunette in front of you, tears were starting to cloud your eyes. a light sniffle left your nose and katherine rose her head back up to see you, "what did i do to you to make you cheat on me?" you asked her looking into her eyes and katherine took your hand in hers. "i'm not elena." she mumbles. katherine was pissed at elena for hurting you like this. you were a diamond and elena just carelessly let you out of her grasp.
"what?" you questioned her and she looks back at you, letting go of your hand. "i'm katherine." she answered looking in your eyes, totally not compelling you. ok, now you were the confused one, why does she have the same face as your two-timing cheating ex-girlfriend. "so, all those times that i thought that elena was so good to me, it was actually you?" you asked the brunette and she nods her head. katherine thought that you would be mad at her for faking your girlfriend's identity but you were the opposite of mad. you pulled katherine in for a kiss which took her by surprise obviously but she kissed back, melting into it. when you pulled away, she was starstrucken, the kiss made her felt alive again and it was better than damon or stefan's kisses.
"y-you're not mad at me?" katherine asked in shock. "why would i be? you care about me." you said in a soft tone.
"[name], have you ever visited england before?" you furrowed your eyebrows shaking your head no. katherine smiles at your innocence, "would you like to visit england?" she asked you. "yes! lemme go pack right now." you spoke and started dragged katherine in your house but she stops you. "sweetheart, we don't need to pack. i'm a vampire, i can compel them to give you clothes for free." katherine stated, leading you to her car.
she opens the car door for you and you say, "such a gentlewoman." before getting into the passenger seat and katherine closes it behind you. you put on your seatbelt just in case. hey, katherine may be a vampire but that doesn't mean that she knows how to drive and you weren't taking any chances. katherine touches her lips with her fingertips, still processing the kiss in her mind, your lips were so soft. she does a happy walk in the way to the drivers seat before starting the ignition and headed her way onto the airport.
so that's where you were now in england with your beloved girlfriend katherine. it's been a week since you left mystic falls with katherine and the gang were worried about you. back in mystic falls at the salvatore house, caroline had her mom and her deputies searching every inch of this town for you and bonnie tried to do a locator spell on you but she couldn't find you, no matter how hard she tried. they thought that the worst happened to you since they hadn't seen katherine as well. worst case scenario, they thought they katherine had killed you already.
walking out of the mystic falls airport, hand in hand with your girlfriend katherine pierce. you kinda felt bad for not telling your sister and bestfriend where you were but you needed a fresh start and blocked off bonnie's locator spells. your first stop was at the salvatore's, wanting to savoring their reactions for when they see you dating katherine and now working with her. katherine's car pulled up to the salvatore house and you both walked into the house, shocking the faces of your friends.
"[name]!" bonnie asked wearily, her eyes red from crying so much. she instantly ran up to you and pulled you in for a hug. of course, you hugged back, you missed her most of all. soon enough, caroline comes wandering back inside the living room and sees you, the mini reunion was filled with tears and hugs.
"what are you doing here, katherine?" damon asked the older doppelgänger, eyeing up suspiciously. you look at katherine who smirks at you before she walks over to you and plants a loving kiss on your lips. you smile in the kiss, sensing the shocked faces of your friends. "yes, i'm dating katherine." you replied as you pulled away from the kiss. you didn't care for their reactions, you were dating katherine and no working with her and no one will stop you from doing so. she treated you better than elena ever did and you satisfied with that.
i love video essays so much because they’re way longer than tiktoks and you can listen to them while you’re doing other things but they’re also really well researched about very specific things and that makes them entertaining in and of themselves and you come out knowing a lot of unnecessary information about this one thing

shitty things damon did in season 3:
part 1, episode 1-2
- subjected elena to seeing his naked body without her consent, making her visibly uncomfortable.
- withheld information from elena about stefan and blocked her from the investigation.
- snuck into elena's room without her permission (for about the millionth time).
And that’s the end of episode 1. What a wild ride.
Final thoughts: Overall, it’s not a terrible pilot but there were definitely some ✨choices✨ made in regards to dialogue and such that just Really do not hold up.
There was actually A LOT of stuff in the pilot that didn’t really make it into the permanent structure of the show, so that’s kinda interesting. Most of it, I’d kinda forgotten about since it’s been such a long time since I watched season 1 specifically.
I’ve always thought season 2 and 3 were the best / better seasons of the show. From what I remember, season 1 is kind of a bit all over the place but I’ll have to reserve final judgement on that until later.
Honestly, the character development for Caroline, tho? Pretty crazy. Vampire Caro is like a whole new person. She changes so much over the course of season 1-2
They didn’t even TRY to make the Salvatore Boarding House look like the same building after the Pilot. Like this is a COMPLETELY different style building than what’s in the rest of the show.
