Why This Must Be Read | There is very little Katerina Petrova fic in this fandom full stop. Even less Katerina Petrova fic that is as flaw-free as this one. This author truly does justice to Katerina’s past and to how her life pre-becoming a vampire has shaped the Katherine Pierce that we get today. I feel like duca_valentino has taken all my fiercely held beliefs about this character and woven them into fic. Also, her Elijah is awesome as well. Later, her mother fades into the white of the mists and Katerina presses her fingers, very lightly, against the glass of her window, traces the shape of her mother through the pale hush of her own breath.
