Why This Must Be Read | This is Katherine Pierce at her most manipulative best. This girl is my flawless queen and her characterisation in this is to die for. It starts a little slow, I'll be honest. But once Katherine's on the scene, you completely forget the shaky Damon-centric beginnings... "Well, that was fun," she said. "I had forgotten how romantic you get."

Why This Must Be Read | This is a really interesting take on Katherine. It's told from her POV and examines her relationship with Stefan. There's a particular line, I'll quote it because it's not integral to the plot, but I think it sums her up perfectly in this... It's almost sickening to think he prefers you this way. I think this really neatly ties up how Katherine is in love with the idea of Stefan; with the chase and not necessarily with the reality. Which I think is a canon concept, tbh (others may disagree with me).
