How To Save A Life (Kalijah)

*American Gothic*

Step one, you say we need to talk

He walks, you say sit down, it’s just a talk

He smiles politely back at you

You stare politely right on through

Some sort of window to your right

As he goes left, and you stay right

Between the lines of fear and blame

You begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong?

I lost a friend

Somewhere along in bitterness

And I would have stayed up with you all night

Had I known how to save a life

        It was a beautiful day, as Katherine and Elijah stood in front of each other in an alleyway in Pennsylvania.

        “Is that what I am to you?” he accused her. “A means of survival?”

        “Of course you’re not a means of survival. You looked out for me when I had no one. You’ve given me a second chance now, when no one else will.” She rested a hand on the side of his face. “I love you. Elijah.” He turned his face away and she put her hand down. “You don’t believe me.”

        He looked at her.

        “I want to. It’s my disease. I just keep wanting to believe you, but how can I when, at every turn, you give me a reason to doubt you. I don’t know you. I don’t think I ever will.”

        She silently watched, as he began to walk away, before catching up with him and put a hand on his arm, stopping him in his tracks.


        He looked at her hand and then her a couple of times and she got the hint, so she let go.

        He looked at her.

        “Goodbye, Katherine.”

        She silently watched, as he walked away, knowing that she’d lost his trust in her for lying to him. She’d broken their agreement they’d made centuries ago. It didn’t matter what she did so long as she never lied to him. Now she knew she needed to earn his trust back somehow.

Let him know that you know best

‘Cause after all, you do know best

Try to slip past his defense

Without granting innocence

Lay down a list of what is wrong

The things you’ve told him all along

And pray to God he hears you

And I pray to God he hears you

Where did I go wrong?

I lost a friend

Somewhere along in bitterness

And I would have stayed up with you all night

Had I known how to save a life

        That night, she found him walking down a sidewalk. She stopped him by standing in front of him.


        “What do you want?” he asked, though he wasn’t interested.

        “To tell you that you’re right. I’ve spent so much time running and lying just to survive, I—I’m starting to believe my own lies. I don’t even remember who I was when we first met. And I want to find out.” She pulled out a box from her purse.

        “You have the cure,” he stated.

        “Yes. And I can shove this down Klaus’ throat and try to kill him, but even if I succeeded, I’d lose you. And I don’t want that to happen.” She set the cure in his hand. “I need you to trust me. I want you to trust me. Just like I’m trusting you. You don’t owe me anything. I’m going to let you decide where we go from here.”

        He silently watched, as she walked away from him, before looking down at the cure in his hand.

*Mystic Falls-Mikaelson Mansion*

As he begins to raise his voice

You lower yours and grant him one last choice

Drive until you lose the road

Or break with the ones you’ve followed

He will do one of two things

He will admit to everything

Or he’ll say he’s just not the same

And you’ll begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong?

I lost a friend

Somewhere along in bitterness

And I would have stayed up with you all night

Had I known how to save a life

        It was a dismal night at the Mikaelson mansion, as Elijah stood in front of her, having just told her that he was choosing to leave town and follow Klaus to New Orleans. He believed that Klaus may need his help to take care of whatever witches were conspiring against him. Family always came first for him, whether he wanted to sacrifice his love or not. Because he felt like he had to cut ties, he was breaking up with her. Not just leaving town. He felt that this was the best thing for them, though he still loved her, and always would.

        “It’s our turn, Elijah. Please,” she pleaded with him, trying to get him to reconsider, but it was obviously futile, knowing how much family meant to him.

        “Katerina.” He kissed her on the forehead. “Goodbye, Katerina.” Then he was gone as quick as possible, needing to get away quickly, in case he changed his mind.

        She stood there, looking at the space he’d once stood, heartbroken, yet again. He always did this to her, but this time, for some reason, it felt different, as if it was the last time she’d ever see of him. She hoped that that wasn’t true. She couldn’t bear to never see Elijah ever again. She loved him with her whole heart.

        It was a dismal night, as Katherine, human due to getting the cure shoved down her throat, sat in the driver’s seat in a nearly totaled car, very injured. She knew she should get out, but she was human and quite injured. She could feel blood on either side of her head, and there was a shard of glass protruding from her lower stomach, and there was another shard of glass stabbed into her thigh. Looking at it, she could tell that it had opened the artery in her thigh. She was in a lot of pain, but she’d never been one to express her pain, unless she was in the presence of Elijah during her pain. She knew she should stay awake, but it was difficult, since her vision was blurry and growing dim. She knew from this that she was probably going to die, and that she most likely had a concussion or worst. She hoped that someone would find her in time and save her life. She didn’t want to die, but as an injured human, there wasn’t much she could do.

        Elijah had just left the bar and was heading home, but on a desolate street, when he smelled the familiar scents he’d know anywhere, he stopped in his tracks. It confused him of why Katerina was in town, so he scanned the desolate area, only to see a nearly totaled car that was crashed into a pole with quite a lot of brute force.

        He blurred to the driver’s side, only to find that Katerina was in there, human and injured.


        He forced the car door open, since it was jammed, and stepped towards her. There was quite a lot of blood, but considering he didn’t know how she was even human, he didn’t want to chance feeding her vampire blood, just in case she couldn’t digest it. She was very pale, too. Seeing the two shards of glass, he pulled them both out and tossed them on the floorboard. He then rested gentle hands on either side of her pale face.

        “Katerina, it’s me. Can you hear me?”

        He didn’t get anything from her.

        He put her arm around his shoulders and slid one of his behind her. Then he slid his other arm under her legs, pulling her gently into his arms and out of the wreck.

        “Stay with me, Katerina. Please,” he pleaded, hoping he wasn’t too late to save her. He knew now that he was wrong to leave her, but at least he was here now, when she needed him to save her after all these centuries.

        He blurred to the compound, so he could ask Freya to heal her. Freya was his only other option, but he didn’t know if she’d make it. She was losing a lot more blood and was growing much more paler. He knew he was losing her, as he blurred home.

        Half an hour later, he entered the compound.

        “Freya!” he called, as he gently layed her down on the table and took his jacket off. He gently lifted her head and put his jacket there as a pillow for her head, before laying her head gently back down.

        Freya came down the stairs quickly, assuming that something was wrong the way he’d yelled for her. She was right when she saw a very injured girl on the table. Though she didn’t know who this girl was, she could tell that he cared deeply for her; especially, after he requested for her to heal her. Freya did as told, though she could only go one or two at a time, so while she began to heal her thigh, Elijah used a towel to try and slow her lower stomach from bleeding.

        As he tried to slow the bleeding with a hand on the towel, he rested a gentle hand on the side of her face.

        “I’m right here, Katerina. Stay with me. I promise you. I will never leave you again,” he said, though he didn’t know if she could hear him or not, since she was getting so close to dying, because of the loss of blood.

        Freya soon healed her thigh, so Elijah took the towel away and Freya began to heal her lower stomach.

        Half an hour later, Freya finished healing all of her and Elijah gently picked her up in his arms, once he thanked Freya, and took Katerina to his room. He then layed her gently down in his bed and sat on her bedside, waiting for her to awaken. He rested a hand on the side of her face and another on top of her hand.

        “I’m here, Katerina, and I’m not leaving again. No matter what has happened, you are not alone. I promise, I will not leave you again. You have my word on that,” he promised her, genuinely meaning every word. If anything had happened to her while he’d been here with his family, he’d never forgive himself. He shouldn’t have abandoned her or left her like he had, but he’d thought that she’d be okay without him. He knew now that he was wrong. No matter what went on, he was going to protect her as long as possible, even if that meant that he’d have to watch her grow old and die while he was still himself.

A/N: Haylijah never happened in the series.

        It was a dismal night, as Freya looked at the crystal that held Elijah’s spirit. It was cracking, which Hayley had just shown her. Freya knew that she had to do something and quick. Otherwise, it wouldn’t hold Elijah’s spirit and they’d lose him forever. She didn’t want to lose anymore of her family. She’d already lost her father, her brother Finn, and her mother. She couldn’t lose anyone else. She had to make sure Elijah’s mind was right, before she could put his spirit back in his body where it belonged.

        Suddenly, she looked to see someone appear with what looked to be an ascendant. She didn’t know who she was, but she was injured. It seemed like the others knew who she was, though.

        “Katherine?” Hayley inquired, shocked to see her. Especially, see her human.

        Klaus gave a smile.

        “Well, well. Look who’s back from the dead.”

        Katherine gave a smile at them, as well as the girl she assumed to be Klaus’ daughter and the witch she assumed to be a family member.

        “Hello, Klaus. Hayley,” she greeted them. Then to Klaus, she said, “You didn’t think I’d stay dead, did you? I had an inkling you might’ve known I was dying, even if you didn’t show up.” She looked around to see that she was at the compound. “What am I doing here? What’s going on?”

        “Well, I could wish, can’t I?” Klaus inquired of the part about her being dead.

        “Elijah’s spirit is inside this crystal. I need to send someone in to make sure his mind is right, before I put him back in his body,” Freya informed her.

        Katherine was crestfallen for a moment. She couldn’t believe that she was hearing that Elijah was dead. She was lucky that he was inside the crystal, though. Because he was in the crystal, she wasn’t upset very much.

        “Send me in there. I know Elijah better than anyone here. I’ve seen the bad parts and good parts of him both. If he’s not in his right mind, I can put him in his right mind. It won’t take too long,” she volunteered. She looked at Klaus. “I’ll help get Elijah back, but first I just need a little something. I won’t survive the trip if my body out here is damaged. Do me a favor and help me out?”

        He thought for a moment, before biting his wrist.

        She drank from his wrist until she was healed. Then she pulled away and approached the magical circle.

        After laying down as if she was going to sleep, Freya did a spell on her which sent her inside the crystal.

        When Katherine found herself inside the crystal, she was in a hallway and everything was white, except for a few of the doors. She could hear happiness from behind one and yelling behind another. Behind a red door, she could hear a commotion, so that’s the one she went through.

        When she entered the red door, she saw unspeakable horror, though it didn’t scare her. She’d done countless things herself, so she wasn’t afraid of any of it. Besides, Elijah would never intentionally hurt her. When she saw Elijah there though, he was a different version of the Elijah that she knew. That’s when she realized that this was the version that he’d been a very long time before they’d met. There was so much death, and he didn’t seem to even recognize her.

        “Elijah?” she called to him, as he approached her, though it was like he didn’t recognize her, even though she knew that he did see her. “Elijah, it’s me. Wake up, Elijah.”

        At first, Elijah didn’t recognize who she was. He only recognized that she was human. And so, he sank his fangs into the side of her neck, feeding. When she didn’t struggle against him like humans usually did though, something familiar sparked inside him.

        “Elijah, you need to wake up. Please. It’s me,” she tried again.

        After a few moments, Elijah let her go, realizing she wasn’t exactly part of a memory. She was here to help him, and he’d almost killed her. Something he’d never wished to do to her.

        He stepped away from her, afraid he might hurt her again.


        “Welcome back, Elijah,” she replied. Then she walked out of the red door.

        A few moments later, he joined her.

        “I’m so sorry, Katerina. I didn’t mean to,” he apologized.

        “It’s okay. You weren’t yourself,” she replied. “Now that you’re okay, it’s time for me to go back and for Freya to reunite you with your body. Oh, and next time, try not to get yourself killed.”

        She vanished out of the crystal but didn’t quite wake up yet.

        Hayley and Hope were upstairs now, but Klaus stayed just in case. Now Freya was in the other room, reuniting Elijah with his body. Klaus would’ve healed Katerina, since he saw that she’d been bitten, but Freya needed to unspell the circle first. Plus, he figured it was best that his brother save her life, since he was so good at that. Especially, when he had a suspicion that Elijah had been the one to bite her, while she’d been inside the crystal.

        Klaus looked at Katerina from outside of the circle and hoped that she’d be okay. Although he’d spent a decade or so hunting her down, now that he had Hope to take care of, he wasn’t the same person he was back then. He’d somewhat changed. He didn’t want to see Katerina die. She didn’t deserve it. Even if it was Elijah’s fault for biting her. He figured Elijah didn’t mean to do it, though.

        After Freya reunited Elijah with his body and after Elijah was awake, he left the room to go make sure Katerina was okay. So, after Freya unspelled the circle, he knelt by her and gently pulled her into his arms. He then bit his wrist and put it to her lips, making his blood go down her throat to save her life.

        Afterward, she healed, which told him that she’d be okay. And so, in the end, they got back together. The Hollow was even defeated too, without the Mikaelsons having to become vessels for The Hollow.

Queen Death

A/N: Haylijah never happened in the series.

        It was a beautiful day, when Elijah woke up in a spelled circle in a house. He’d been poisoned with the rosebush thorns the night before. The Hollow inside of Sofia, Marcel’s girlfriend, wanted to become flesh by killing him. Because the thorns had Marcel’s venom on them, it was lethal. All Elijah could do was wait for his siblings to save him. There wasn’t much he could do. He was dying. He was trying to fight, but he knew it was only a matter of time.

        Meanwhile, Klaus found out that something had happened, when Hayley told him she hadn’t seen Elijah since the night before, so they worked together to figure out where he was. Freya tried a locator spell, but she found out that Elijah was cloaked by magic. She couldn’t magically find him. That’s when Klaus asked for Marcel’s assistance in finding his brother.

        Katherine, human, suddenly appeared someplace which she realized to be New Orleans, ascendant in hand and injured from her time in the prison world. She knew where she was, since Elijah was there, in pain and misery, laying in a spelled circle. She then saw someone there, obviously the one whom had caused this. That angered her and made her fear for his life all at the same time. Despite her injuries, she didn’t let her weakness show.

        “What the hell did you do to Elijah?” she said angrily, and magically pinned her against a wall. She then approached.

        “If you aim to save his life, you can’t. The thorns have Marcel’s venom. Either way, he dies,” she informed her, and laughed at that. “After that, I’ll be unstoppable.”

        Katherine stopped her magic.

        “No, you won’t. I didn’t come back to life to lose the love of my life. You won’t win. The Mikaelsons and I are never defeated. You’ll lose and go back to rock you crawled out from.” She magically snapped the girl’s neck. She then went to the circle and magically lifted the spell on the circle.

        “Please, hold on, Elijah,” she pleaded.

        Elijah heard her and then blurrily saw her, not sure if she was real or not, as everything began to go black.

        Once the spell was broken, she got him out of the circle and on his back. Then she knelt beside him.

        “Stay with me, Elijah. Don’t die on me.”

        She hovered her hands above him, starting a spell. She didn’t know what she’d come back to life in the midst of, but she could still protect and save him. She could use magic to make sure no one could harm him and siphon the venom into herself. She’d rather die than for him to.

        When Elijah woke up, he felt cured and saw a human and injured Katerina, letting him know that he hadn’t imagined it. He realized that she was somehow human with magic. She’d saved his life.

        He knelt by her, a hand on the side of her face, as she lay on her back with stab wounds and an opened artery in her thigh. He also saw that she had and was still losing a lot of blood.

        “Katerina, can you hear me? Katerina. Open your eyes, Katerina,” he called to her.

        When she didn’t wake up or move, he gently pulled her into his arms and got to his feet. He didn’t know how she was human, so he didn’t want to chance feeding her vampire blood. He had one way to save her life. He had to get Freya to heal her.

        Stay with me, Katerina. I can’t lose you. Keep fighting. Don’t die on me, he thought, as he blurred home to get Freya to save her life. He couldn’t lose her. Even after he broke up with her a few years ago, he still loved her. He always would. She was a piece of him and he was a piece of her. He could bare to lose her. He needed her to live. Besides, he hadn’t looked out for her for 500 years, just to lose her now to a simple human death. They were meant to be there for each other forever. He knew now that he’d made a mistake by leaving. Because of him leaving, she’d somehow become human and was now dying, because he hadn’t kept in contact to make sure she was okay. He had thought that she’d be okay on her own, just as always. He was wrong. Now, because of him, he may never have a chance with her again. He needed her to fight; stay strong. He couldn’t bare it if she died.

        He entered the compound to see that Klaus, Hayley, and Freya had been working on trying to find out where Elijah was. Obviously, they didn’t need to do that anymore, though. Katerina had saved his life from The Hollow.

        Klaus gave a smile, when he saw Katerina, but didn’t say anything. He should’ve known she wouldn’t stay dead. She was Katerina, after all. She always managed to either survive or come back, even when you thought that she was dead.

        “What’s Katherine doing here?” Hayley questioned, confused of why Katherine would be in town.

        “I need you to heal her, sister. She used to be a vampire, so I don’t know how she’s human. She did save my life, though.”

        Freya didn’t know who this Katherine was, but she healed her anyway, once Elijah layed her down on the table.

        Once she’d finished, she asked her brother, “How did she save your life?”

        “I don’t know how, but I assume with magic. I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough. She overpowered The Hollow. I was out for the rest of it.”

        A few minutes later, Katherine woke up.

        Elijah helped her to her feet.

        She let him and looked at him.

        “You’re welcome,” she said to him, before he could say anything.

        He rested a hand on the side of her face.

        “What has happened to you, Katerina? Why are you here?"

        “Don’t hate Klaus for this, but he knew that I was dying of old age due to Elena shoving the cure down my throat, but since you never showed up, I can only assume that he never told you. And I understand why he didn’t tell you. He needed you here at the time. I died of old age, because of how old I was as a vampire, and because Silas drained the cure out of me. Don’t blame yourself. There was nothing you could do, even if you were there. Besides, the best part out of all of it was that I got to be reunited with my daughter, Nadia. My father tore her from my arms, but I got a second chance. That is, until Tyler bit Nadia and I had to watch her die. Then I died. When I died, I ended up in a prison world and then when I escaped, that’s when I suddenly ended up there and kicked whoever it was that poisoned you with the rosebush and Marcel’s venom.”

        “I’m so sorry, Katerina. I should’ve been there.”

        “You couldn’t. It wouldn’t have been fair for you to have to watch me die.”

        Freya intervened.

        “I’m glad you saved my brother, but how exactly did you manage to do that?”

        Katherine looked at her.

        “I have magic. I’m descended from Travelers, so I was able to magically transfer what she did to him to me. I’m human. The venom and poison won’t harm me like it will vampires, apparently. Now, what I have I missed since I’ve been in that prison world?”

        They caught her up and even told her everything they knew about The Hollow whom was inside Sofia.

        Afterward, Kat offered to help them take her down.

        “I can help put the end to The Hollow. One, she tried to kill Elijah and I won’t let that stand. Two, I’m quite powerful since I’m descended from Travelers. With the combination of my magic and Freya’s, we can destroy her, once and for all.”

        They agreed with her and she and Freya searched for a way to stop her by going to Vincent to see if he knew how The Hollow was imprisoned last time. Once Vincent told them, Katherine knew what to do.

        In the end, The Hollow was put to rest for good and Hope was safe, as well as everyone else.


        Katherine sat in the living room, having a shot glass of bourbon, alone. Hope and Hayley had gone to bed.

        Elijah entered the living room to join her, figuring she might be there.

        “Katerina,” he greeted her.

        She looked at him, instead of the fire in the fireplace.

        “There’s nothing to say, Elijah. You left. I died. Now I’m back.”

        He sat next to her.

        “Thank you for helping us, Katerina. You saved our lives, including Hope’s. You almost died saving me. I may have left, but I had every intention of coming back for you. I had my family to look after, though. I couldn’t return until the time was right. Now, I believe the time may be right. If you’re willing to go with me. My family doesn’t need me anymore. Besides, I still love you and I always will,” he replied to her, looking at her.

        She gave him a smile.

        “Of course. I’d go anywhere with you.”

        He smiled back.

        A moment later, they were kissing.

The Hollow's Downfall

        It was a dismal night, as Elijah stood outside on the porch in the bayou, watching for any danger, knowing the Hollow was still out there somewhere. Hayley was inside in bed. When Elijah entered the room, he’d chosen to stay in in the cabin, he sensed a presence and scanned the room. When he did, he saw someone in the dressing mirror.

        “Katerina?” he questioned, shocked, not expecting to see her. Nor did he know that she was dead until now. His heart sunk, realizing she was a ghost and dead, and he knew that if he was seeing her, she was asking him for his help, the only way she could as a ghost.

        After she’d gotten his attention, she disappeared from his sight, having made it clear that she needed help and she wasn’t happy that he’d moved on. She stayed in the room though, watching him.

        “I’m sorry, Katerina,” was all he could find to say.

        Her heart sunk, hating seeing his look after finding out that she was dead.

        “Elijah,” was all she could say. She didn’t know if he could feel it or not, but she rested a hand on his arm. There wasn’t much they could say whether she was alive or not.

        He looked at his arm, feeling like she’d touched him. Then the feeling was gone.

        Katherine left and soon appeared at the place that the others were staying at. When she ventured around the house, she realized that Klaus had indeed had a child with Hayley, just as she’d heard before she’d died.

        Katherine stood in the living room, watching Klaus and Hope share their artistic abilities with one another. As she did, she couldn’t help but smile. Even if he had ruined her life for 500 years, he deserved happiness, just like she deserved it. Seeing them together, she realized that the child had changed Klaus, just as being reunited with Nadia had done for her, before she’d had to watch Nadia die.

        When she approached, she was silent until she finally sat down across the table from Hope, so now she was sitting with Klaus to her right. She wasn’t afraid of him. She’d forgiven him on her deathbed. Besides, there wasn’t much he could do to hurt her while she was a ghost.

        Hope stopped what she was doing. Being half witch, she could see her, but she didn’t know who she was or what she was. When she looked at Katherine, which Klaus couldn’t see, he had enough experience to know that his daughter saw a ghost.

        “Who are you?” Hope questioned her.

        “I’m an old friend of the family. You may not understand this, but your Uncle Elijah and I were together off and on for quite a long time. Your dad and I don’t get along very well, though. My name is Katherine. I need some help in coming back to life, which I need to convince your Aunt Freya to do for me, but it’s going to take some convincing from your Uncle Elijah. I already came to Elijah, so he’s on his way here. I’m just here waiting for Elijah to come over,” Katherine explained, as simply as she could to the little girl. She didn’t know how much the girl knew about her family, so she kept the vampire stuff out of the equation.

        “Who’s here, Sweetheart?” Klaus asked calmly, though he was suspicious. Why would a ghost be showing him or herself to his daughter?

        “Someone named Katherine,” Hope replied.

        “Well, well, Katerina. I wouldn’t put it passed you to haunt me. What are you doing here?” Klaus said, though he knew he wouldn’t be able to hear her.

        Katherine used a crayon and blank paper to write her response to him.

        Hello, Klaus. I’m not here to haunt you. Quite the opposite. I’ve shown myself to Elijah, so now he knows I’m dead. He’s coming over so he can get your dear sister to bring me back to life. I don’t hold a grudge against you. Even if I did, I wouldn’t do anything to harm you. You have a daughter to look after. I once had one too, but unlike me, you’ll be able to raise her without being afraid of what your father will do. Nadia was illegitimate so my father tore her from my arms and banished me. We were reunited before I died, but I was too afraid of your answer or what you would do at the time, to ask you to cure Nadia when I found out that Tyler bit her. That, and she just wanted me to be happy, so I want to try and do what she wished me to do.

        After reading it, he looked at the empty chair he figured she was probably still sitting in.

        “I’m sorry, Katerina. If I would have known, I would have saved her,” he told her.

        Elijah entered the house and called for Freya, as he entered the living room. No matter what, he was going to bring Katerina back to life. It had to be done. He wouldn’t just let her spend an eternity in whatever limbo she was in, since he knew it wasn’t the Other Side, because the Other Side was gone. It had to be something else for her to be able to reach out after who knew how long. He didn’t know how long she’d been dead. He cared for Hayley, yes, but Katerina would always be the one for him. He knew now that he’d been wrong to just abandon her. Somewhere between the time he’d left and now, she’d gotten herself killed. He couldn’t stand the thought or sight of her dead. She had to come back. She just had to.

        Freya entered the living room where most of her family was, as well as a ghost she didn’t know, were in.

        “What is it?”

        “I need you to bring Katerina back to life,” Elijah told her.

        Katherine got up and walked over to Elijah and Freya who stood by each other.

        “He means me. My name is Katherine, but Elijah and Klaus call me by my human name. I know you don’t know much about your family’s past, but Elijah and I have always had a thing. It’s just always been difficult since Elijah always chooses Klaus over me. I guess things have changed, since he’s choosing to bring me back to life, rather than do other things.”

        Freya sighed. She’d heard of Katherine, but hadn’t known that she and Elijah had history together, or that Klaus had anything to do with Katherine.

        “Okay, fine.” She looked at Elijah. “I’ll bring her back.”

        “Thank you, sister,” Elijah replied.

        An hour later, Katherine was alive and fed and clothed and human. She was sitting on the couch, drinking a shot glass of bourbon. She’d already informed Elijah on what he’d missed, but though Elijah was mad that Klaus hadn’t told him that she’d been dying, he decided to settle his feud with Klaus until they didn’t have anything to worry about.

        “Now that I’m alive, I’m kind of in your debt. Plus, I know about what’s been happening in New Orleans. I’m going to help take down The Hollow. I’ve never encountered it, but I’ve heard of it and I’ve known people that have encountered it. I also know its direct source of power and now that it’s awake, it needs someone with power to connect with. Last time you both saw me, I didn’t have any kind of magic, but when my long-lost daughter, Nadia, protected me from Silas and I found out who she really was, she told me that I’m descended from Travelers. I have magic,” she informed them.

        “Why would you want to take down The Hollow?” Klaus questioned, suspicious.

        “Because the Hollow can destroy everything and everyone if it wants to. It would probably take a few days and then New Orleans would cease to have anyone alive in it, once The Hollow has a full foothold into this world. It demands sacrifice. I’m going to put a stop to it permanently.”

        “You don’t have to do it alone,” Elijah reminded her. He’d already seen her dead once. He didn’t want to lose her again.

        She looked at him.

        “Well, I have to. I know it has already gone after Klaus and Marcel. I won’t let it go after you or anyone else. I’ll survive. Besides, if I need some extra power, Freya can help me. Besides, after all of this is over with, I should probably leave. There’s no room for me here when you’ve clearly moved on to Hayley. I’m happy for you if you’re happy, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.”

        She finished the shot glass of bourbon and got to her feet.

        That night, she stood in the middle of the house with Freya, both doing a spell.

        Soon enough, it was destroyed for good.


        Later that night, Katherine sat in a chair on the porch, looking into the distance.

        Elijah walked out of the house and went to sit next to her.

        “You’re right, Katerina. You don’t exactly belong here, but neither do I. Klaus doesn’t need me anymore. He’s got Hope. You’re also right that I do care for Hayley, but you know as well as I that you’ve always been the one, no matter who I love in the present century.”

        She looked at him. “If I’m the one, then why leave me for Klaus so many times? You could’ve stayed all those years ago. After getting to know Nadia though, I partly understand. Family is everything. We just don’t get the luxury of choosing who our family is. So, does this mean you and I are going away together?”

        “Well, it’s only fair we leave. Hayley can’t exactly come with me when she has Hope and Klaus. Besides, we’re long overdue for a few trips or more of our own. What do you say we go on our own adventure or two,” he said, that last one almost quoting what she’d pleaded with him to do all those years ago, before he’d walked away for the final time.

        After saying goodbye to everyone, they left. So, in the end, they got back together and finally got a life of their own.

I’ll Love You Forever Until The End (Kalijah)

        It was a dismal night, as a human Katherine appeared in New Orleans, ascendant in hand, injured. She’d just escaped Kai and the 1994 prison world. She’d expected to appear in Mystic Falls, but instead, she found herself in New Orleans. She didn’t know why, so she began to walk, taking a look around.

        After finding out what Marcel had done and almost did, she was furious. Instead of hunting him down though, she went to find the Mikaelson siblings and Hayley. She was smart, so that’s why she didn’t go after Marcel. Marcel was a weapon. She was human. Descended from Travelers with Traveler magic or not, she didn’t stand much of a chance against Marcel if she angered him. He was now worse than Klaus himself. Another reason was due to the fact that she had to make sure that Elijah didn’t die. Besides, even though Elijah had left, she’d do anything to keep his family safe, whether Elijah lived or not. She had at least some decency to help out his family, whether she was doing this for him or if she was doing this for those she cared for that were connected to their bloodline.

        A few hours later, she found the abandoned warehouse. She saw that they were already cured, since she saw that Elijah was outside by a fire with Hayley standing beside him. She did overhear them talking about getting Klaus back from Marcel, which she knew meant that Marcel was holding Klaus as a prisoner. She knew without a doubt that Klaus needed saving. She also realized how close Elijah and Hayley had become, which made her wonder if she even belonged in his life anymore. She wouldn’t let anyone see her upset, though.

        She put a hand on the hood of an abandoned car that looked like it hadn’t run in years, so she could at least try to go further. Everything was growing dim, but she did see Hayley finally go inside the warehouse. She’d lost a lot of blood from her time in the prison world, having to deal with Kai of all people. She knew she deserved it for everything she’d done, though. At least in her perspective, she deserved it. She knew others would see it differently. As she used the car to keep herself from falling, or try to, she finally spoke now that Hayley was inside.


        As soon as he heard the voice and smelled blood, he knew who it was and, even before he turned around to see how bad it was, he realized that she was somehow human again.


        He blurred over to stand in front of her, and was afraid for her life, though he didn’t quite show it. She’d lost a lot of blood and was very pale, and he could tell that she was fighting to stay awake and stay on her feet. Judging from the ascendant he saw in her hand, she’d come from a prison world, and he instantly realized which one it had been. He knew all about the two prisons worlds, and he knew about Kai. Elijah normally didn’t go around killing people, but if Kai was here, he’d kill him for harming Katerina. Right now, though, he knew that didn’t matter. All that mattered was to take care of her. Make sure she lived through this. He may care for Hayley, but he would always love Katerina, no matter what.

        “What has happened, Katerina? You’re human.”

        “Long story cut short. I thought Elena said something to make you leave, and since I was angry, I took it out on her, and she shoved the cure down my throat. After Silas drank the cure from me, I began aging and within a month, I died. I ended up getting taken by some black mass and ending up in a prison world, instead of where I thought I’d end up at. I finally found a way out with the ascendant tonight, but not before Kai did what he did,” she summarized to him.

        “I’m so sorry, Katerina,” was all he could say. He couldn’t take anything back that had happened in the past any more than she could. Everyone made mistakes. They just had to live with them and move on.

        She couldn’t say anything to that, since apologies were overrated when it came to them. They never truly got what they wanted. Then everything went black for her.

        When she collapsed, he caught her from hitting the ground. He then put the ascendant in his jacket and gently picked her up in his arms, before blurring to the warehouse. He didn’t know if she could digest vampire blood now that she was a human again. He couldn’t let her die, though. There was only one thing he knew had to work to save her life. He had to get Freya to heal her and save her life, even though he knew Freya didn’t know her. As far as he knew, Freya knew nothing of doppelgangers.

        “Freya, I need you to heal her,” Elijah stated, as he layed her gently down on the table Freya had used to make their cures on a while ago. He put the ascendant on a nearby table and used his jacket as a pillow for her head.

        “Who is she?” she inquired, wanting to know why Elijah was asking her to heal someone she didn’t even know or recognize.

        “I’ll explain later,” he told her. He didn’t feel like telling her their entire tragic love story right now. He didn’t think she had much time left, and he wouldn’t lose her again. He knew what Katerina had told him had been the truth, for once in a very long time.

        He rested a hand on the side of her face.

        “Stay with me, Katerina. Please.”

        Realizing that she was someone that Elijah cared about deeply, more so than he did for Hayley, she agreed and approached. She then began to heal her.

        Hayley silently stood on the sidelines, not having anything to say or knowing what to do, if she could do anything. Katherine was a terrible person as a vampire, but she knew she didn’t deserve to die like this. Katherine didn’t deserve this. She didn’t have anything to say, since she didn’t even know about Katherine and Elijah being together. They had clearly been together, judging from how much he didn’t want her to die.

        Soon, Freya had finished healing her and Elijah stayed at her side, waiting for her to awaken, once the blood she’d lost had been restored, and Elijah had summarized who she was to Freya. He just stood there, a hand still on the side of her face, waiting for her to wake up, determined not to leave, no matter what. He’d left more than once before. He wouldn’t leave again. Especially, when she needed him. Even when she recovered from what she’d been through with Kai, she’d need someone to protect her from non-human enemies. Someone that wouldn’t betray her or try handing her over on a silver platter. He’d protect her, no matter what. Besides, once Klaus had been rescued from Marcel and Marcel was dealt with, there wasn’t anything for him anymore. Klaus didn’t need him anymore. He had Hope and Hayley. He was sure Kol and Rebekah would be moving on as well, even if Freya stayed behind with Klaus and Hope and Hayley. This gave Elijah a new purpose. He could fulfill what Katerina had asked him to five years ago. They could go away together without worrying about Klaus coming after either of them. They could finally be happy.

        Soon, she woke up and they all left to go deal with Marcel. The Mikaelson siblings went to rescue Klaus, while Katherine met Marcel in the cemetery.

        “Long time no see, Katherine. I was surprised when you wanted to meet me here,” Marcel greeted, once he’d arrived.

        “The only reason I wanted you to meet me is because I heard about what you did. Bad move going after Elijah and Klaus. You know how much I care about Elijah, and you broke our deal we made. Or did you forget? I helped you get the tourists to come back to help New Orleans thrive like it was meant to after you and Rebekah sent Mikael here. In exchange, you keep away from the Mikaelson siblings, though I never really cared about Rebekah, considering the history you two have. I figured you’d never harm her, but I guess I was wrong. You’re just like Klaus. Worse than Klaus now, though. Tell me. Why’d you do it? What did Klaus do this time for you to strike back the way you did?” she greeted back.

        “I never forgot, Katherine. I just figured after all this time, since you never followed Elijah back to town, that you wouldn’t care what I did. Davina’s dead because of Kol. The ancestors may have had a hand in it, but it’s still Kol’s fault that she died. He deserved what came to him. As for his family, darkness surrounds them all. Everyone they touch, eventually dies one way or another,” he replied to her.

        “You think that it’s okay to do this? What you did is unforgivable, Marcel, and you know it. You may not have friends that are linked to the Mikaelson bloodline, but what happens if someone else has friends or family linked to Kol or Elijah or Rebekah? This may come as a shock to you, but I actually do have people I care about. People I don’t know who their bloodline starts with. I’ll always love Elijah, but I also have always loved another vampire. Someone I turned. If any of them die and my bloodline is linked to someone that’s not Klaus, his blood will be on your hands, and I will be your worst enemy,” she warned him, trying to get him to see reason.

        “You may be human, Katherine, but I can do whatever the hell I want now that I’m a weapon against the Mikaelsons.”

        “I’m not just a human, Marcel,” she answered. “I’m much more than that.” She magically through him against a mausoleum that was close by, and then approached. “I can do whatever the hell I want and get away with it myself, because I’m descended from Travelers. Something I learned from my long-lost daughter I didn’t ask for the cure from. You’ve been keeping Klaus captive, I’m well-aware of, and though I’ve hated him for 500 years, keeping him away from his daughter is something personal for me. My father did almost the exact same thing with me. He tore her from my arms and when we were reunited, all we got was maybe a few weeks or so and then we died together, as family, because one, I didn’t ask for the cure because I was afraid of what Klaus would say and two, everyone found out that I body jumped so I could live a little longer. My doppelganger thought it would be nice to waste the cure for vampirism on me, so when Silas drank it out of me, I began dying of old age and it couldn’t be stopped. Take it from me. The time you lose with your daughter can never be bought back.”

        Marcel got up.

        “I’m sorry about your daughter, but it’s different with Klaus. He deserves what has come to him.”

        “Why?” she questioned him. “What makes you any better than Klaus? You’ve killed just as he has. Those around you die just like what happens with Klaus and the others, and even myself. We’re all the same, whether we want to believe it or not.”

        “You hated him for 500 years. What stopped you?” he inquired of her, wanting to know.

        “When I was on my deathbed, I knew it was time to forgive everyone who ever wronged me. I even forgave Klaus, and I forgave Elijah for leaving. There’s no point in having vengeance forever, when you can’t do anything about it. Even if you do seek your vengeance and win, there’s no satisfaction. You don’t get what you want truly. Look at you. You’ve gotten your vengeance against Klaus and Kol, but what of Rebekah? You’ve lost her because of what you’ve done to her family. She loved you and this is how you repay her? I’ve stood in her shoes before, and I know that she won’t forgive you. She’ll make sure you suffer before she finds a way to once and for all, kill you, with or without her family at her side. You see, she may despise me, but we are so much alike I hate admitting it. I know what she thinks of you, and how she’s going to react to what you’ve done. As for me, I won’t side with you after what you’ve done. I’ll side with the Mikaelsons. Enjoy what life you have left, because you never know when we’ll all take it from you,” she told him.

        She figured that they’d rescued Klaus by now, so she turned around and began to walk away, leaving Marcel to ponder about what she’d said.

        As he watched her leave, he knew that he’d lost her forever as a friend and ally, all because of what he’d done over rage and vengeance.

        After Klaus was rescued and reunited with his siblings, and he and Hope bonded, his siblings and Katherine decided on how they’d get rid of Marcel. Elijah didn’t want to deal with Marcel anymore, but Katherine and Freya and Kol and Rebekah were onboard. Katherine decided to be the one, instead of any of the Mikaelson siblings, just so nobody got hurt. Plus, Katherine was more than ready to destroy Marcel once and for all. So, once Freya made the dagger that would destroy Marcel, Katherine went to the compound where Marcel was, and she used it on him, which permanently killed him.

        Once Marcel had been taken care of and everything, the Mikaelsons moved back into the compound. They were happy to be finally back home, and they began to turn the compound back into what it had once been.

        Katherine stood on a balcony in Elijah’s room that night, which Elijah entered and went to stand beside her.

        “Thank you, Katerina, for saving us all. We all owe you, even if some of us don’t want to admit it.”

        She looked at him.

        “I’d do anything to keep the Mikaelson bloodline alive. Marcel’s death ensured that, even if he was once a friend and ally, and to some, family. What will you do now? Klaus has Hope now, along with Hayley, and Rebekah and Kol are leaving town together.”

        “I hoped that maybe you and I could leave together. That is, if your offer still stands, and you’re willing to let me protect you and keep you safe as possible. Maybe there can even be a newfound relationship between us. No lies. No secrets. Complete trust and truth,” he replied to her.

        “I’d love that,” she replied.

        So, that night, Klaus’ siblings and Katherine, apart from Freya, left town on their own adventure.
