    Bookmarker's Notes

    It’s not just Tyler. It’s the fact that Caroline honestly had thought Tyler would always choose her until he suddenly didn’t. It’s the fact that Klaus — the bad guy — had given up his revenge on Tyler for the hybrids and allowed him to come back to town because she had asked it of him.

    It’s the fact that she knows if she had offered Klaus the same choice -just love me more than you hate him — he would have taken it. He would have chosen her.

    Summary

    "She looks at him, truly looks at him for what seems like the first time in months. He looks the same as she remembers; he’s handsome, with well-worn laughter lines on the corners of his blue eyes. He’s got the same dimples she fell in love with, and even though this face is the same as the monster she had dreamt of, this one is older, and Caroline loves him.

    “You killed people,” she hears herself whisper.

    ----

    Caroline and Klaus return to their reality where they are mortal and human, and not the hybrid and baby-vampire they have spent the last few months dreaming of being.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Caroline remembers Damon. She wishes she couldn’t, because she wakes up at night scared about what she’ll do next, how her body will move without her willing it, and how his commands would resonate in her skull. She has nightmares that Damon tells her to kill her mother, Elena, Matt, everyone, and she does it because she has no control.

    Caroline remembers how it felt to be nothing more than a toy and a blood bag, and the cold look in Damon’s eyes when he told her he would kill her eventually. She knows what evil feels like, and she knows what fear is.

    Klaus, not once, not ever, has made her feel that. Caroline has been scared of him - at his worst, Klaus was a cold blooded killer and Caroline was terrified of him, but in a different way. She’s never been afraid that Klaus would take her over, erase who she was, make her into his slave. Caroline’s never been afraid that Klaus just doesn’t care, because it’s so, so obvious that he does, even if he doesn’t want to.

    Elena won’t be able to understand that - and rightfully so, because Caroline does remember everything Klaus has done as well - but Caroline can’t understand Elena’s love for Damon either, so maybe they’re just two sides of the same coin. They both see something in people, something that proves they aren’t evil. Caroline knows Klaus isn’t evil; he’s bad, definitely bad, but he’s not evil.
    ---
    Caroline thinks that if she can be loyal to him, if she can be what he wants her to be, he’ll do absolutely anything for her. Caroline thinks that he would burn the world down if she asked him to. She thinks that maybe she shouldn’t have held out so long, because Klaus may be devious and cruel and bad but he’s not used to people choosing him, and if she did, if she could choose him, he would choose her back.

    Caroline is good at loving people who don’t love her back. She always loved her parents more than it seemed like they loved her, and even though she knows Matt and Tyler cared, she also knows that they didn’t love her, not the way she loved them.

    Klaus doesn’t love her either, Caroline knows that much, and she’s not even sure if he’s capable of love. Even so, if Caroline gave Klaus her loyalty, he wouldn’t walk away the way Matt and Tyler always did. He’d spent thousands of years dragging his family around willingly or not out of a confused sense of loyalty, and Caroline could use that.
