1. You can blame all your bad deeds on your addiction and will not be held accountable for it. (It also helps that you killing an entire village and possibly raping women happened off screen.)
2. You can be an abusive piece of garbage and still get the girl (and a happily ever after).
3. You can drink, do drugs and have lots of sex at the age of 15 with no consequences.
4. You can treat your “best friends” (who coincidentally are POC) like trash and they’ll still do anything to save your sorry ass.
5. You can be a confirmed female rapist and still be considered a survivor while the confirmed male rapist gets rightfully called out on it by the fans.
6. You can score with a girl whose best friend and whose boyfriend’s mother you killed.
7. You can score with a girl who you’ve almost killed at least three times.
8. You can be the most badass witch and the only guy interested in you is your best friend’s younger brother (who gets away with cheating on you with a ghost).
9. You can stalk a girl for months and still be considered her “epic love”.
10. You can be a total bitch to your friends because of your self-imposed inferiority complex, but the fans still say your friends are the problem.
11. You can sleep with a guy who killed/hurt almost everyone you love and don’t have to feel guilty about it.
12. You can’t call someone out for sleeping with a guy who killed/hurt almost everyone you love (including your mum) without getting punched in the face.
13. You can tell the love of your life to leave because you need to process that said love of your life slept with the guy who enslaved you, slaughtered your friends and killed your last living family member, but she won’t listen (because she’s sick of getting called out on her bs!)
14. You can slutshame every female character (and some of the male characters) and still be considered a feminist icon.
15. You can tell your boyfriend to save your friend from drowning instead of saving you, yet everyone will call you a selfish bitch.
16. You can shut off your emotions willingly because your mum died and the guy you have feelings for doesn’t feel the same and still have fans root for you.
17. However, if you have someone whose every wish is your command tell you to abandon your emotions after your last family member died, you’re the bitch.
18. You can never attend a highschool dance if your name is Rebekah Mikaelson.
19. You can kill the love of your life’s brother and still have a chance with her.
20. You can also force said brother to become a killer who later wants to kill his sister but still have a chance with her.
21. You can feel entitled to tell someone you’ll be her last love (as if they have no say in the matter, as if it’s inevitable) and it will be considered romantic.
22. You can rip multiple people’s hearts out with no remorse and still be called the noble brother.
23. Your death is inevitable if you’re in a relationship with Alaric Saltzman (unless your name is Meredith).
