I didn’t understand where Elena and Damon’s feelings came from, as for me Stelena’s relationship is love at it’s purist. And everything that happened within season 4 and the finale, real made me feel frustrated and bitter towards the love triangle and the whole idea of DE xD haha. I totally get the anger and confusion with passionate SEr’s! I was the same…but then I read this blog created by a VD fan called Stephanie, and it answered alot of questions and cleared up alot of misunderstanding.
It’s only because we haven’t actually taken the time to really step back and analyse what’s really going on here. Everything we’ve seen, everything Elena’s feeling, everything Nina, Ian & Paul have said in interviews, everything Julie Plec has said and the whole aspect of the ‘love traingle’ all makes sense and is actually justified within the whole series. Julie Plec actually truly has not ‘ruined’ Stelena, she’s actually pretty genuis (I know yeah! :o) all the writers are. I know your thinking what? How! Want some answers?
READ THIS, it’s long but zoom in and take the time to read it, because it’s worth it.
You’ll honestly find yourself at ease with the whole love triangle which the show is built on (subject to it being key within the books) and will be able to enjoy it. I am SE 100% and will root for them all the way, but after reading this I am now truly able to understand and root more for Elena as a main character and embrace right now DE and SE in which Vampire Diaries is built around, it’s not a hinderence, it’s an important aspect as Julie has stated (it’s not over) and is the selling point of the entire show, it just has to be taken in and analysed truly to realise that. We are still able to enjoy the mystery and to go along with the enjoyment of ‘anything can happen’ ‘who is it going to be? Where do her feelings lie?’ sort of thing, and still have those lingering questions, it’s good, that’s what is excitable about the show! But if this is correct, as all the hints/clues/lines point out, then the whole ‘love triangle aspect is pretty clever and the writers are actually pretty damn talented at their craft. Just sit back and enjoy the ride of this awesome show :)
I gave up hope for them SE after the finale too, it’s easy to get wrapped up in frustration and anger, cos we have all really fell and believe SE’s relationship, rightly so. (That’s how much we all love the show, SE or DE, all character lovers, they all really do a good job and it’s brilliant! Never been hooked on a series as much as I am with VD! Always entertained, makes you passionate about the show!) If to us SE is what we enjoy about the show then it’s silly to give up on them being a couple.
We’re are the ones rooting for SE! :) if you give up hope on Stelena SE’rs truly because of DE, then it’s a shame, because your missing out on an enjoyable journey with it’s obstacles, painful times and epic ones.
Enjoy the show!
