Fandom: The Vampire Diaries
Warnings: None, unless you count AU.
Prompt: 16) The difference between weakness and wickedness is much less than people suppose; and the consequences are nearly always the same. --Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of Blessington (1789-1849), Irish novelist, writer of magazine articles, and editor.

Summary: Jenna opens her eyes, mouth wet with blood, and breathes in. It's what happens after you're dead that's eye-opening.
Author's Notes: Written for femgenficathon, the 2011 version. This is my way of fixing what the showrunners broke, sort of. It's AU from 2.21, because Jenna lives! Anyway, I tried to utilize the prompt fully, but it kind of ran away from me. I know it's open-ended and not my usual thing, but I kind of like it that way.
Spoilers through season two. Title from a Death Cab for Cutie song. Link goes to my journal, post is open. Please read and review.
