#this episode had so much powerplay and manipulation going on #and omg the light hits them really well too in that gifset #and I will not think about that slightly accusing look on caroline’s face #(and can I just say that I completely and utterly loved tyler in this episode) #(everyone he cared about is dead) #(all he has is caroline) #(and he was willing to give up his agency for her #after he repeatedly broke every bone in his body for it)
#and this scene shows how well tyler knows klaus #that was what this whole manipulation hinged on #tyler’s knowledge of klaus #caroline and tyler’s knowledge of abusers and the abuser’s mentality #(you didn’t give a crap about me; you just didn’t want to be alone) #(maybe real love is stronger than fake loyalty; but what would you know about that) #here’s the thing fandom doesn’t get for the most part #it’s not that caroline trusted klaus’s ‘love’ for her (LOL WTF) #it’s not that caroline trusted that klaus wouldn’t let her die #she trusted tyler’s understanding of what makes klaus tick #she trusted her own understanding of Bad Boy Woobies and their self-absorption and self-pity #their egotism and desire for control #this isn’t the story of how klaus ~loves caroline so much that he couldn’t let her die #this is the story of two abused kids figuring out how to defeat their abuser

⇁ [7/9] The Sun Also Rises (#221)
it’s no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I’m haunted by how things might have played out differently if I’d been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it’s the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It’s for that child that I give you my ring. I don’t ask for your forgiveness, nor for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this.
Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same. As I’ve always loved you and always will.
