“Damon and Elena have nothing in common.” AHAHAH OKAY. (This post is really long btw and it shows all the times Damon and Elena have said / done the same things.) I would just like to preface this by saying that MANY of these parallels are from seasons 1, 2, and 3. So, those of you that think the whole concept of Elena being more like Damon than Stefan is ridiculous / came out of nowhere clearly missed all of these parallels. Also, I’d like to say the following quote: “I was protecting the people I love, Damon. But so were you.” - Elena Gilbert (1x14) Even back in season 1, Elena understood Damon better than he understood himself. Why? Because they are almost exactly alike. (TWIN FLAMES)
I’m rather disgusted by the Mako hate. And the Makorra hate. I’d like to remind everyone that Mako lost his parents when he was 8. He lost 2 of the most important people in his life. And what’s worse is they were killed RIGHT in front of him. From this point onward, Mako took it upon himself to take care of his brother, no matter WHAT. And I think Mako made an effort to NOT let his emotions get the best of him because if he did, he wouldn’t be able to do what he had to do: take care of Bolin. Going into the present, with Mako’s conflict about Asami and Korra. He has feelings for Korra. Really strong feelings. No doubt there. But at the same time, while I don’t think he has any real romantic feelings for Asami, he doesn’t want to hurt her. One could argue that by expressing his feelings for Korra by caring about her a LOT and talking to her more and more, he’s hurting Asami MORE than if he just ended their relationship. At the same time, he wants to be there for Asami. Asami’s father basically stabbed her in the back and ended up being one of the worst people to ever exist (aka and equalist). Mako doesn’t want to lose Asami. He doesn’t want to lose anyone else.
Sure, this makes him selfish, but seeing as he’s HUMAN, he should be allowed to make mistakes without people calling him an “asshole” for having conflicting feelings. A guy being conflicted about his feelings for one girl while in a relationship with another… That stuff happens in real life ALL the time. It’s shocking that it’s more acceptable in real life but the MOMENT Mako does anything remotely HUMAN, he’s labeled a ‘douchebag’ or a ‘dick.’ I think people need to think about how logical their opinions are before they express them. (This is coming from a Makorra shipper, who loves Mako, Korra, AND Asami).
my main problem with tvd (and the reason why i haven’t said i HATE stefan yet) is purely because i KNOW that if the writers ACCEPTED the fact that he fucks up sometimes and MADE him have a redemption arc, i know i could like him? like he is a great character. if you find a way to look past his douchebaggery, he has a great character arc and there’s SO much potential there… but he literally never has to apologize for anything. everyone just lets it go anyway. e.g. this latest webclip we got. while i am really happy (and i mean REALLY happy) that stefan and elena are on the road to becoming friends, i don’t like that the writers are completely ignoring stefan’s behavior towards both damon and elena in the past couple episodes. putting it lightly, he was an asshole, and that’s all being thrown under the rug (as per usual) just because the writers aren’t willing to give him a redemption arc. damon has done a LOT of things wrong, but the difference is he has been FORCED to work to gain his reputation back with the people he hurt. he had to apologize and redeem himself, and it didn’t happen in merely one episode. it took a few episodes (at least 4-5 usually) for the people he hurt to forgive him, or at least TRY to forgive him and i don’t know, that just bothers me a lot. it sucks because i used to love stefan so much in season 1 and season 2 (and a small part of season 3) but then he started screwing up more often than not, and he NEVER had to actually redeem himself. that just really bothers me.
The Makorra tag is like the worst tag to enter. I’d like to be able to enter the Makorra tag without having to see people post shit about how “awful” they think my ship is. To be honest, I DON’T CARE if you hate my ship. Hate on it ALL you want to. But the least you could do is be courteous and not post your shit on the ship’s tag. Just for ONCE I’d like to enter the Makorra tag and see fanart, gifs, graphics, GOOD text posts, not craploads of hatred.
