An open letter to Nina Dobrev

Dear Nina,

First of all let me say this: You’re a truly amazing actress. You are so loved and so blessed not only by people who surround you but an entire fandom.We call you queen because you have a gift , one of being so talented. You’re honestly one of my favorite actresses out there, but to me you’re also an amazing human being. You’re kind, giving, adventurous ,sweet .This traits don’t come just for anyone. I also know that everyone that works with you feels you positive vibes.

When you were in The Vampire Diares, let’s face it, you gave us so much. The fandom loved you, the crew love you for many reasons; for the sassiness of Katherine Pierce,heartless and selfish, but being able to own her worst qualities , fooling everyone because behind that sweetness of hers , it was hidden a sociopath woman who didn’t give a damn about anyone else but herself and didn’t value loyalty or friendship. She was indeed the perfect villain.

Or for the compassion you gave to Elena Gilbert, her gift to see the good in people, she would do everything for the people she loved , she was selfless ,she had endured so much,lost so many people and yet she still stood on her feet,showing everyone that she could do anything, even if in the beginning we thought she couldn’t do the vampire part.

All these traits played by a single actress, that takes a lot of talent, that is something we can all agree on. So yeah Elena or Katherine even Amara and Tatia gave us so much. So much.

I was there through it all. When Bonnie figured out she was a witch, when Klaus killed Jenna, when Damon killed Jeremy ,  when Katherine turned Caroline.When Klaus fell for Caroline,when Bonnie’s ”funeral” was held so beautifully it broke me and even when Tyler was finally set free from Klaus.I was there even when Elena accepted her feelings to Damon, even though heartbroken to see that the “Stelena” love story came to an end. But I endured all. Why? Because I was holding so much and for so long to Elena Gilbert, I had faith in her.

So yes, I was heartbroken when you announced that the character of Elena would come to an end after season 6. I was in denial for such a long time. But within time I learned to get used to it. The main character of my favorite tv show wouldn’t exist anymore. Yeah.

But I still accepted and respected your choice , since you did give us all we were hoping for. Everything but an unknown end.

So I ask you my dearest Nina, what did we gave to you? I know for a fact that this tv show gave you a ”free pass” to the Boulevard of Dreams, Hollywood. That must mean a lot , even to a gifted actress like you. Other than that, I bet you loved us. Every single one of us. You loved being part of this amazing fandom , whose dreams were always being crushed by Julie and Kevin. We almost never had our wishes come true, but we bear it all. We made it through 8 seasons.

So I think we do deserve to be appreciated for at least one more time, by none other than you. You have to give us a meaningful ending. Not because you own it to us , but because we deserve it.

Love always,

Your fan.
