Grace in your heart, Flowers in your hair by norrific

Fandom Category: The Vampire Diaries
Pairing: Bonnie Bennett/Mason Lockwood (sorta)
Fic Title:
Grace in your heart, Flowers in your hair
Author: norrificLink:</font>

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read:
This story starts right in the middle of 2x06 so Mason doesn't die but stays alive to help Bonnie out of her depression and anger issues over Grams ‘death. After that infamous torture session, Bonnie stops the vampires from killing Mason and shows who Katherine truly is, via magic means, thus ensuring his collaboration to let the gang have the moonstone. Later on, Mason begins to notice that Bonnie has embarked on slightly self-destructive ways to deal with her problems, and the somehow romantic friendship that develops between ends up saving her eventually. This fic deserves extra point to not have Mason and Bonnie jumping on each other simply because they have a connection – she is younger and emotionally vulnerable and Mason never once disrespects that. The feelings between them stay always nicely unsaid and platonically expressed, and their relationship is all healthier for it. The word ‘courtly love’ comes to mind and fits perfectly to describe their dynamic.

Plus Norrific is an incredible, and incredibly deep writer.
