Fandom Category: The Vampire Diaries
Pairing: Bonnie Bennett/Damon Salvatore, Bonnie Bennett/Mason Lockwood
Fic Title: Interests Spark
Genre: AU, romance, oneshot
Why This Must Be Read: In one AU version of Plan B where Mason never knew Katherine Pierce, he and Bonnie hit off. Damon watches on and disapproves for twisted reasons that are not particularly clear even inside his head, so he takes it on himself to warn Mason to stay away from the town witch. The fact that Bonnie accidentally overhears that particular conversation sparks an absolutely hilarious and yet absolutely realistic situation, where even Stefan is both amused and stupefied by his brother's dramatics.
Nobody writes Damon's twistedness as well as charrrmed, and every other character is nearly as flawlessly portrayed.
Plus, Bonnie manages to be irresistibly cute and funny while fangirling innocently on Mason's hotness.
He had stopped to look at her, to look at the tiny little thing that had tried to kill him. He had seen the table start to fall, but he had not even attempted to go and help. For one he was too far away, and for another he wasn't too sure he could hold a civilized conversation with her just yet.
He put his enhanced hearing to use, because he wanted to be alert if any seed was being planted for any possible future alliance. He heard Bonnie question him about being a Lockwood and therefore Tyler's uncle before offering her condolences for his loss. Damon crossed his right arm, his left hovering next to his cheek. He continued to listen.
"So…are you going to the masquerade ball?"
Damon thought she sounded too hopeful. He did not give her any points for trying to be nonchalant.
