There was none of this “soulmate” or “pre-destined” stuff I’ve grown weary of, it simply is. It shouldn’t be about which brother is more of a prick. Honestly, I think Stefan wants to come back to her. One of the major reasons Damon can be there for Elena right now is because he has learned to quash his bloodlust he doesn’t like to, but he can, and when he has moments he snaps and breaks, he’s learned to do it away from her–which is actually a problem for their relationship long-term. However, that doesn’t stop them from trying! But no, in this fandom, it’s all about taking pot shots at one character while turning a blind eye to their favorite’s faults. Or do they all pretend to get along and snipe at each other for every mention of the rival ship being even somewhat valid?

The writers have even admitted they wouldn’t have gotten such violence on the CW network were it not for the supernatural aspect of it all. They’re above humans on the food chain.
Or do they all pretend to get along and snipe at each other for every mention of the rival ship being even somewhat valid? As far as the line Damon gets it, Stefan hasn’t But I also have zero doubts he knew how to juggle his bloodlust, compelled loyalty, and love for Elena, and that’s where the issues stem on his side.
And don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my gripes about Stefan, but I also have gripes with Elena and Damon and every other character. ATLA fandom is also pretty bad for being on a hairline trigger with anything shipping related.
“you have me” Stelena. | Keep calm and love TVD | Vampire diaries, Keep calm, love, Love never dies
I squeed sooo loudly when Damon kissed Elena, my husband came out of the computer room to see what was wrong. TVD is the first fandom I’ve been semi-active in since Being the cold asshole vamp has its place, just not in a relationship. The slightest mention of Zutara or Kataang will get you all manner of sniping.
Point being, Damon can be there for Elena because he knows how to be a vampire and be around humans without constantly lusting to feed, while Stefan never learned stelea sort of control. Anyone likeable can be shipped with him.
Previous Entry Next Entry. Damon is just being Damon. It was a small, but very friendly fandom. It reminds me of the Saiyuki fandom in that people are more prone to passive-aggressive shots at either Stefan or Damon’s ophone this triangle’s case character than actually stating why the characters wouldn’t work as a couple.
Just sort of a, “Ugh, that pairing doesn’t do it for me.
Does stwlena want to turn his emotions back to ‘high’? I think, in this Twilight era, this may be a reason so many people express anger at Elena’s character. And most of my Stefan complaints have gone by the wayside now that the writers are playing with more than just his one-dimensional good side.
I’m pretty curious to know what things are like in your fandom, too. Most series have an actual developed character as the main female, with real, believable thoughts and feelings and flaws and strengths, rather than a blank slate that fans can conveniently insert themselves into.
Previous Entry Next Entry Stelena: I’m a Delena fan as well, but so far outside the online fandom to have not been a part of the ship wars.
Actually, I think part of the Internet imploded when those Harry Ipphone ships became canon. Now that is a fandom full of batshit insane shipping nonsense.

KEEP CALM AND LOVE STELENA.
There was none of this “soulmate” or “pre-destined” stuff I’ve grown weary of, it simply is. Each character is vibrant and unique; none can be easy to slip into the shoes of. I’m 40, and married when Tselena was 17, so can’t really compare my trials to Elena’s, but I do see that she has grown up as a character. You’re right when you say it’s like Twilight, but Twilight was written however unconsciously on the author’s part for that exact purpose; whereas, I doubt this series has been.
It really is interesting to see what sort of backgrounds and lifestyles the fans have coming in to this show. In a way it’s very Edward versus Jacob in that sense, which is moderately upsetting since that turns it into more of a self-insert-masturbatory fight than it does a genuine interest and care for Elena as a character.
Log in No steldna I agree that early Stelena was very sweet, especially iphne contrast to Damon’s cruelty at the time.
