"Elena had been like a force of nature: take her or leave her for the passionate, cynical, idealistic,self-centered, generous-to-a-fault, girl that had been her mortal self. A wild tropical storm in rising in a millpond. An orchid in a field of daisies; a gryphon in a herd of sheep. Elena had never been like anyone but herself. And she had absolutely gloried in the moment when she could drop all her defenses and submit entirely to the fate of the quarry caught by the hunter—because the hunter had been her heart's desire, and because in all other things he was her slave, to cherish or spurn or destroy as she pleased."


Notes and references

  1. In Chapter 1 of The Return: Shadow Souls, which takes place in August, Elena says that she is eighteen years old. Based on Chapter 1 of Dark Reunion, Elena's birthday had not occurred between December 13, 2013 and June 21, 2014, nor was her birthday mentioned in The Return: Nightfall to have been the week after. Therefore, she must have been born in August. Additionally, Elena stated in Chapter 13 of The Struggle that she would turn eighteen the following summer.
  2. Elena Gilbert: I was born here in Fell's Church. (The Awakening - Chapter 1)
