Pairing: Elena Gilbert/Stefan Salvatore
Fic Title: Instinct
Rating/Warning(s): nc17, bloodplay, rough vampire sex
Why This Must Be Read: the wonders of a freshly turned, hyper-emotional but oh-so-in-character Vampire Elena in the woods with her-desperately-trying-to-stay-stoic Stefan. No need to say, things between them get even more intense than usual when Elena decides to 'gently' coax the monster out of her man. Stefan and Elena are already beautiful onscreen: what makes their love so wonderful is their unlimited capacity for mutual acceptance, the way they take care of each other so completely without ever stifling each other. Well, I can only say this fic portrays that part of their relationship magnificently.
