bombproof [listen] - for the doppelgangers.She of the perfect curls knows a survivalist when she sees one.

we could have had it all two queens on the throne the one who plays the long game and the one who glories in her unsanctioned salvation no one can touch the raw nerves of her humanity anymore because it’s been burned away; replaced by a lacquered exoskeleton of violence and katherine katherine of the curls katherine who survives katherine who smashes hearts and throats and knows how to play how to survive in ways elena has never had to the predator who knows the value of shadow and silence doppelgangers wanted and desired for what they are and refusing to submit to the ones who would break them petrova doppelgangers are the best (borgia)

And a mother who never taught her anything
But holy scripture.
She saw the blood and shuddered;
Into her hair she felt the words:
“It’ll pass. It’ll pass.”
Like the tide she thought.
