Epic-Delena

Some shippers say that Bonnie would be Damon’s second choice so after Delena’s epicness, Bamon wouldn’t be awesome. To those shippers one name : Katherine.

( So basically is Elena not the second choice ? xD )

You know, even though I ship stelena and steroline I don’t run into as many conflicting feelings as you’d think since I ship the two relationships for very different reasons so they appeal to different sides of me. But that’s changing now that Nina is definitely leaving at the end of this season because it bothers me and doesn’t bother me that there hasn’t been much interaction between Stefan and Elena. It doesn’t bother me because I think the show effectively destroyed Elena’s character by wrapping it so tightly with Damon’s and claiming that the change happened because she became a vampire; no, it happened because the writers were so hellbent on showing how ‘real’ and ‘epic’ delena was that they just turned Elena into someone whose sole priority is him and her relationship with him thereby making her a terrible friend and an absentee sister. And I was so tired of season 5 Stefan being the sounding board for her petty delena problems, I was tired of him being the energizer bunny keeping that ship going so when they finally introduced steroline and made him indifferent, borderline apathetic to Elena and delena I was happy and it was refreshing. But at the same time, now that Nina is leaving, I think it’s a slap in the face of stelena shippers that the show hasn’t been leading to a sense of closure or reconnection for that ship. I think it’s disrespectful that the most we’re getting is “the two epic loves of my life” in passing because stelena was a fundamental aspect to the show. They weren’t only written as a couple, they were written as a pair, as a team; their love for each other was a fact, the writers didn’t need to spend so much time proving that their feelings were real, they didn’t have to stop plot and storyline to explore that relationship, Stefan and Elena just “were” which allowed them to be investigators, to look into the supernatural shenanigans of the town together, they led the plot as a couple and then had their ferris wheel moments and ‘50s dance moments and making out in bed moments (all of which melded into the plot). There are quotes by the creators saying that for the show to work, Stefan and Elena’s relationship had to be magic, there are many references to how Paul Wesley was picked specifically because of his chemistry with Nina, there are statements that talk about how Stelena was the “heart” of the show and we’re not getting any sort of recognition of that? True, the season isn’t over but I sincerely doubt they’re going to extract Elena from the delena/damon/cure plot line in any real way to pay homage to what stelena was to the show.

Elena: You never told me about that. What you did for Rose.

Damon: It wasn’t about you.

Elena: Why don’t you let people see the good in you?

Damon: Because when people see good, they expect good. I don’t want to have to live up to anyone’s expectations.

For the ones who are angry that Delena is over (well, is going to end this season) and want the show to be cancel. I have a question for you, are you angry at Nina for wanting to have new challenges and grow more as an actress? Or are you angry because you assume that Ian (even when there was never any indication that they hate eachother now and fact is, they’re friends!) is the real reason?

You guys are hating one of the actors who gave you Delena.

Get over yourselves!! That is fucking cruel for them, you are not a real fan of Ian or Nina!! You just proved it.

‘Sta roba fa male al cuore, però… quanto son belli. ç_ç

(Damon pours some bourbon on a grave)

Damon: One for you, one for me. Cheers, Horatio Fell.

(Damon recalls the night with Elena, watching for shooting stars. In the memory, Elena smiles big and Damon smiles back, when it starts to rain)

Damon:

Come on. It’s time to abandon ship.

Elena:

No, no, no, wait. Just give it a second. It’ll clear up.

(It starts raining harder. Damon and Elena kiss)

Elena:

Promise me this is forever.

Damon:

I promise.

(They smile and kiss again, getting soaked in the rain. In the present, Damon raises the bottle as he stumbles toward the Salvatore mausoleum)

(Elena walks out onto the front porch. Damon follows her.)

Elena: I feel like a horrible person.

Damon: You just saved his life, Elena. Take it from me, strange is bad, dead is worse.

Elena: I just can’t stop thinking about what happened the last time I asked you to compel him.

Damon: He found out. And he got over it. Again: not dead, Elena! He’s so lucky to have you for his sister.

Elena: Thank you.

Damon: No problem.

Elena: Not just for this, Damon. For everything… I don’t know what I would do if you weren’t here.

Damon: You should know this, Elena. Stefan didn’t screw us over. He screwed us over but he had a good reason.

Elena: What?

Damon: He saved Klaus to save me. Then he stole the coffins to get even.

Elena: What? Damon, if he did it to protect you then… Why would he even do that? What is it even mean?

Damon: What’s it even mean?….. Means I’m an idiot. ‘Cause I thought for one second that I wouldn’t have to feel guilty anymore.

Elena: What? What are you talking about? Guilty for what?

Damon: For wanting what I want.

Elena: Damon…

Damon: I know. Believe me, I get it… Brother’s girl and all.

(He starts to leave then stops halfway down the stairs)

Damon: No!! No, you know what? If I’m gonna feel guilty about something, I’m gonna feel guilty about this.

(He kisses her)

Damon: Good night.

(He walks away.)

Damon: I wanted to apologize.

Elena: Good.

Damon: Let me finish. I said I wanted to. And then I realized, I’m not sorry.

Elena: You would rather die than be human, and you expect me to be okay with that?

Damon: I didn’t say you were supposed to be okay with it, I just said I’m not sorry. But you know what I really am? Selfish, because I make bad choices that hurt you. Yes, I would rather have died than be human. I’d rather die right now than spend a handful of years with you, only to lose you when I’m too old and sick and miserable and you’re still you. I’d rather die right now than spend my last final years remembering how good I had it and how happy I was, because that’s who I am, Elena, and I’m not gonna change. And there’s no apology in the world that encompasses all the reasons that I’m wrong for you.

Elena: Fine, then I’m not sorry either. I’m not sorry that I met you. I’m not sorry that knowing you has made me question everything, that in death you’re the one that made me feel most alive. You’ve been a terrible person, you’ve made all the wrong choices, and of all the choices that I’ve made this will prove to be the worst one. But I am not sorry that I’m in love with you. I love you, Damon. I love you.
