i don't think we're in kansas anymore  
who's a bandwagon-jumper? me! me!

I am kind of confused by what this is, but it involves writing fic, as far as I can tell? After making the shiny masterlist, I am mostly cringing at half the stuff on the aforementioned shiny masterlist, but I am a masochist, why do think I love Logan. okay, so.

Fic War

What: Tumblr Fic War

Who: Anyone who reblogs this reposts this.

When: Until everyone is actualfax dead, because this is WAR suckers!

Why: FEELINGS

What: Everyone who reblogs reposts is opening their ask box comments up to the most brutal, feelings-inducing prompts anyone who is playing can imagine. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take those prompts and DESTROY EVERYONE with them. Not just angsty stuff either, fluff can be just as bad, as many of you know!

And, it's just— Logan had always been an intense high-school romance, sure. But somewhere along the way, in some secret corner of her mind, she had convinced herself that was all he was; a high-school romance. Explosive, powerful, passionate, and burning itself out eventually.

This totally doesn't fit in with what the prompt demands (glorious angst!) sorry?

in despite of | stefan/caroline | breaking rules 1-100 of the girl code.



So, she kind of does that thing where she falls in love with her best friend’s ex.

And, um, oops?


-


Girl Code Rules Number 1-100: Thou shalt not fall in love with thy bff’s ex boyfriend.

Clause 45: Especially if he once threatened to throw her off a bridge and then left her to drown.

“That’s not a real thing,” Bonnie says, laughing. Beautiful Bonnie, Catty Caroline, Eternal Elena.

Except Bonnie doesn’t say, because Bonnie is dead. But Bonnie totally would’ve said it if she hadn’t been.

“It’s a thing,” Caroline says, out loud, to Bonnie. Which makes her insane in the eyes of the people watching, but dude, she’s a vampire. Insane isn’t even in the rear-view mirror anymore.


-


“Do you want a cigarette?”

I love you.

Stefan looks at her through half-lidded eyes, “since when do you smoke?”

She shrugs, “I don’t.”

He looks confused, for a second, “then why do you have a cigarette?”

Because I love you.

“I don’t.” so it would’ve kind of been a better plan to say something else that didn’t involve a cigarette she doesn’t have. But then she might just have said that other thing out loud and had to set herself on fire with that cigarette she doesn’t have.

He’s looking at her- not confused, exactly- more, just, amused, and if he thinks too much, he’s going to hit on it, because he’s Stefan Salvatore.

“You shouldn’t smoke anyway,” she adds, hastily, “it’s bad for—”

Vampire, right.

“bad.” she ends, lamely.

He laughs, and maybe it’s a good thing she’s never had a filter, and this is normal, or something.


-


So here’s the list of things she can do:

1. Stake herself

2. Tell him then stake herself.

3. Tell Elena then probably have Elena stake her, even though Elena’s with Damon, but god knows, if epic love transcends the brother of the epic love.

4. Tell him and Elena and then have the powers that be handle it, because she broke the Girl Code, that shit is serious, and probably involves karmic retribution from the universe that probably involves an eternity of torture by being locked in a room with Kol Mikaelson and his baseball bat, or something.

5. Run away and answer to the name of Glinda Fairweather and try not to laugh nervously when someone sings Sweet Caroline, because people have a tendency to randomly do that. Fucking Neil Diamond.

6. Tell nobody and pine secretly like that chick from all those movies about falling in love with your best friend ever made.

7. Wait to self-implode, because there has to be a maximum limit to the amount of lameness that the world can handle

in despite of | tvd | stefan/caroline | 2/2
The Idiot's Guide To Rules of The Universe: thou shalt not fall in love with thy best friend because did thy not watch My Best Friend's Wedding that one time?

That is the realistic version, Taylor Swift songs about people belonging with other people lie, and this is the universe so it knows what it's saying.


-


“Are you sure you’re okay?” he’s eyeing her strangely.

“Yes,” she snaps. Being a bitch is in-character, she aced that one English test in tenth grade, she knows this stuff, okay.

He raises his hands in defence, “just asking.”

“Well,” she says, you can stop looking like that, I’m fine, “I love you.”

Wait, that went a little wrong.

“I love you too.” He laughs, and ruffles her hair because she’s an adorable kitten. Bastard.

Do you want a cigarette? “I am in love with you.”

What the fuck is happening?

Option 5, it is.

(He lets her run, she knows. Because he’s older, he’s stronger, he can catch her, but he lets her run.

So, well, that’s that.)


-


She notes with surprise the universe doesn’t end. And neither does she.

“The world works in mysterious ways,” she says to the sweet, old lady at the supermart, who probably doesn’t speak English.

“Fuck off.”

Maybe that’s French for, yes, it does.


-


He’s leaning against the turnstile outside her house, when she gets back. Hands crossed, like he didn’t practice it in front of the mirror, which, bitch, please, she may be seventeen-going-on-fucking-stupid but she’s seen that one James Dean movie, like, ten times.

“Caroline—”

“Glinda,” she says, glaring, “that’s the name.”

He doesn’t even skip a beat and she fucking loves him, oh god, “Glinda.”

“Are you here to tell me you love me?” the moon isn’t even full, he could’ve at least waited a couple of days and, like, planned this, considering it’s been three days anyway. And it’s not true, so it would’ve made a more effective lie that way.

“No,” he says, soft.

Oh, don’t strain yourself trying to spare her feelings here or anything.

She moves past him, “good day to you, sir. Don’t let something hard, pointy and wooden hit you on the way out.”

He sighs, and how come he gets the angst and she gets the heartbreak? That isn’t even a good story.

“Caroline, you’re not in love with me.”

She stops, “um, okay?”

“You’re not in love, you’re just very,” he stops, “—seventeen.”

“Don’t patronize me,” she says, and that dangerous undertone in her voice is kind of cool, “you don’t want to be in love with me, that’s all fine and dandy. But don’t you dare tell me what I’m feeling.”

“What are you feeling?” he asks, like he’s Stefan Salvatore, The First Guy Friend Caroline Forbes Has Had, and god, what if she lost that guy because she was such a moron and fuck, fuck, fuck.

“I don’t know,” she says, voice small, “like I’m in love.”

He sighs again, and dude, did he, like, steal her part or something, because, drama queen much?

“You’re going to break my heart,” he says, slowly, which is ridiculous because how even is—


-



Elena laughs.

Bonnie says something like “I told you so,” and shouldn’t voices in her head be nicer if it’s only her subconscious?

But the sex is fantastic, and even if Stefan's right and this isn’t love, she thinks she’ll stick around for this for a while.

“That makes me feel really special,” Stefan grumbles, but he’s naked, so it’s kind of easy to tune him out.

(He says 'Glinda' when he comes, and she's about to hit him and run screaming before- oh- and if he's still thinking that much, she obviously needs to get her A-game here.

The third time, he says her name. In this sort of strangled way, like he can't help it, that makes her flush a little. Stefan: 12, Caroline: 149214.)

She's keeping count, obviously. Because he's always been the one with all the tallies. Ever since: Caroline. You and me, it's not gonna happen. Sorry. Take that, Mysterious New Guy Version of Stefan Salvatore. Because this? Is happening.

“Do you want a cigarette?” she asks, later, because it’s appropriate this time, and it’d make a really hot scene with the sheets and everything.

He pulls her back in, instead, which is also good; she didn’t really have a cigarette anyway.

"“It’s a thing,” Caroline says, out loud, to Bonnie."

I have tears in my eyes. I KID YOU NOT. I have, because your writing is INSANELY brilliant & emotional. It's like... like... you've ripped all these characters apart and you're writing this with their blood... which sounds horrible & I'm sorry because it does no justice the utterly GORGEOUS AND SUBTLE way in which you convey everything. But I just don't know how to say it better. Your words are just TOO ALIVE. Words! Even your commas are alive. AHHH It's just that whatever you write, it just makes such a PERFECT sense on some CELESTIAL level that is beyond an ordinary reading level. It blows my mind every time.

That line above, the entire paragraph, everything in between and beyond, the entire fic - your words SCREAM and everything you write is LIVING ART, and this fic is absolutely fantastic.

I love your writing.

Oh wow, haha, this is the last fic I would've imagined could possibly make anyone cry; maybe I'm mixing up my emotions, haha. But seriously, thank you, high praise from you (and wow, it's high praise indeed!) makes me all awful and glowy :D

It's like... like... you've ripped all these characters apart and you're writing this with their blood... which sounds horrible & I'm sorry

DON'T APOLOGIZE OFC, THAT SOUNDS REALLY COOL ACTUALLY :D That's quite a metaphor right there!!

There is nothing about this fic that I do not love. Caroline making a list! Sweet Caroline! Glinda Fairweather! And this:

So, she kind of does that thing where she falls in love with her best friend’s ex.

And, um, oops?


Possibly the bestest fic opening ever!

YAY.

Re: in despite of | tvd | stefan/caroline | 2/2
I sometimes think I kind of remake canon-Caroline in my head, since this is definitely my headcanon version of Caroline. BUT THEN AGAIN, she did say all the things about The View, and the Hey-It's-Tuesday Look, so nothing will convince me that Caroline isn't just adorable and batshit insane inside her head, haha.

So glad you liked it :D

CRYYYYIINNNNNNNNGGGGG because THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SEE ON THIS STUPID SHOW (TELL NO ONE). The compactness of this is just perfect for Caroline's wry POV (OH EM GEE YOUR CAROLINE THO), AND YOUR STEFAN IS ALSO AMAZING??? Like, of course he would be like "you think you like me but you don't!!!" in an attempt to distance himself, because of course he would. And this is just them at their best and most stupid, can this be the real life pls. Also,

Except Bonnie doesn’t say, because Bonnie is dead. But Bonnie totally would’ve said it if she hadn’t been.

WAS THIS REALLY REQUIRED

OH GOD, THIS IS ACTUALFAX WHAT I WANT TO SEE ALSO. LIKE, I GET THEY HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES, AND THE RELATIONSHIP DOESN'T DO MUCH FOR CAROLINE AS A PERSON, BUT DEAR GOD, GIVE ME BANTER AND MAKE-OUTS AND THE ADORABLE AND I WILL BE SATISFIED.

This version of Caroline is my favorite to write tbqh, I've done angst with her, but mostly, I just like her neurotic and insane. And Stefan-with-Caroline is one of my favorite Stefans, SO.

WAS THIS REALLY REQUIRED

I LIVE TO BE MEAN TO U K.

I LIKE YOUR CAROLINE A LOT BETTER THAN THE CURRENT SHOW-CAROLINE BUT MAYBE YOU JUST GET HER MORE THAN ME IDK.

Anyway this was beautiful and glorious as your writing always is and omg Glinda I am dying, why can't this be the way the show show works. WHY CAN'T THEY JUST GIVE YOU THE SHOW TBH.

YOU ARE SO KIND. AND YOU HAVE AN ICON. I AM IN LOVE ETC.
