ICYMI, Nina Dobrev officially announced on her Instagram this morning that she won't be coming back as Elena Gilbert on the next season of The Vampire Diaries. We're still trying to process this piece of information. And as usual, we have come to Twitter to find comfort in the trending topic "Elena Is The Soul of TVD" because that's what fangirls do when they're sad, in case you haven't realized that yet. Speaking of ~*feels*~, we read through the topic and found these tweets that really got how we feel about the news. Can somebody hold us right now and tell us everything's going to be okay on TVD? *sobs*
1 Is she?
Nina is the new Zayn. Elena Is The Soul Of TVD— Citações tvd (@citacoestvd) April 7, 2015
Two weeks later, we have to deal with another news about someone leaving something again. *sigh*
2 Now we'll always wonder about Elena.
THE FACT THAT I CANT EVEN ENJOY WATCHING NEW TVD EPISODES..BCZ ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT IS THAT NINA IS LEAVING TVD.. Elena Is The Soul Of Tvd— InLuvWithDelena ☔ (@TVDPLLWorld) April 7, 2015
How are they going to erase her from the story? Are they going to kill her or send her off somewhere else?
3 What happens to Damon now?
He is totally going to lose his humanity.
4 Speaking of Damon...
Damon: "I can't live without her." Damon: "You are my life." DAMON SALVATORE IS DEAD TOO Cancel TVD Season 7 Elena Is The Soul Of TVD— no. (@delenaftdobrev) April 7, 2015
Are they going to delete him from the show, too? Kidding, girls. We're just kidding. But how is his story going to be from now on?
5 Somebody make this trend of someone leaving stop!
I CANT, I CANT I CANT, IT HURTS, MAKE IT STOP! Elena is The Soul of TVD.— KateFGMP (@KateFGMP) April 7, 2015
Because our hearts can't take it anymore.
6 But seriously, what are they going to do with the story?

Did they forget that every thing began with Elena Gilbert?
7 Somebody explain this to us!
If Elena doesn't get her happy ending with Damon what was the point of this show. Elena Is The Soul Of TVD pic.twitter.com/TTrb55pmEc— No Delena, No TVD (@themotherdragon) April 6, 2015
They better not get some replacement love interest for Damon because that's really going to break our hearts so bad.
8 This is what we'll be doing while watching the remaining eps with Elena on it.
We'll be on the couch trying to justify everyone's decision that this is Elena's time to move on now.
9 Totally feeling this quote right now.
Elena Is The Soul Of TVD "The worst day of loving someone is the day you lose them." We can't lose Elena! pic.twitter.com/G9L84zL2FP— 1989 (@bilgegungoren) February 11, 2014
10 But when all has been said and done, one thing will remain with us: Nina portrayed Elena's character perfectly.
And for that, we'll forever be thankful. But for now, allow us to feel and look like this.
We'll miss seeing you on The Vampire Diaries, Nina!
