Day 15 - A scene that makes you happy?

Damon/Elena, Not the Worst Company (Season 01, Episode 11, "Bloodlines")

For me, this is the only time we've ever seen Damon and Elena completely at ease, comfortable, happy-smiley with one another (okay, without alcohol in the picture -- as it was earlier in the episode). There was just the slightest mention of Stefan (a Damon taunt that only received a smile from Elena), or Damon's wicked, wicked ways. They were just two individuals having a conversation, revealing bits about themselves, connected in the aftermath of a traumatic event in which they'd both lived through, and in Elena's case, triumphed. And the kicker was Damon's repeated "You're not the worst company, Elena," that was just filled with such a quiet happiness, as well as a tinge of realization that he really liked this girl. Just for her. Not because of Katherine, or because it would piss Stefan off, but just because he liked Elena. And Elena just kept on smiling.


Sigh. Just thinking about it, writing about it, gives me a giddy, happy smile. :)

This is one of my favorite Damon/Elena scenes. It was cute, fun, comfortable, and filled with Delena banter. My favorite line "I don’t know, you were there in the road, all damsel in distress-like". A little of the Louisiana boy in Ian came out in the delivery of that line. Loved it!

I just can never watch this season and not smile. I &hearts it so. :D

This scene does make me smile - mostly because it is Damon & Elena simply being themselves (as you said)without any of the usual danger, or drama, or emotional baggage.

I agree with tams71 that Ian's Louisiana upbringing showed in his delivery of that line. How charming :o)

Hope you're feeling better, Jennifer.

I am feeling better; just going to veg like a stalk of celery this weekend. I am not leaving my house unless I absolutely have to.

Squee! I love Damon and Elena in this scene so much. :)

Your reply reminds me of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when she says, "Be still like vegetables, lay like broccoli"... very cute.

Elena's reaction (smile & slight shake of her head) to Damon's Stefan dig is very cute, but also shows her understanding of Damon. Then, Damon's "I know" seems detached on the surface but he's looking directly at her (instead of the road).

Both are such good actors and bring great things to the screen.

Heh, I haven't watched Pretty Woman in a while, so forgot that.

Agreed; and together, they bring out the very best.

definately one of my favorite Damon/Elena scenes and you totally explained why =) I think it's the first time since Elena discovered he was a vampire in "Lost Girls" that their interaction isn't riddled with some form of negativity (be it loathing, suspicion, fear, etc) and it's great *sighs*

Yup, and unlike the earlier scene where they were discussing vampire anatomy and stuffs in the bar, this just better because it wasn't about Damon, the vampire!, but rather it was just Damon, the guy and Elena clearly had enjoyed herself overall with that guy. Yay!

I love that they just smile and smile and smile and smile. It makes me smile, too. They are so cute together.

they just smile and smile and smile and smile

Yup, they're so happy and at ease with one another. *sigh*
