"Dear Diary, love. bites. Sometimes it can make you feel like it's the greatest thing in the world. It can make you feel safe. It can make you forget everything -- like you could start all over again. But love can also make you feel out of control. Scared -- like it's eating away at you 'til there's nothing left. Love really sucks."
--- Elena Gilbert, The Vampire Diaries 1x01 (Pilot)
