I’ve found the reason why I’m so obsessed with my OTP

You’re damn right, Damon!! I want to be consumed by my love for my ships ;)

“delena is a toxic ship" 

"it’s such a dark and abusive ship, why do you even like them?" 

"how can you ship them? they just don’t work”

“even the show points out they have a toxic relationship, that does not spell out endgame to me" 

*mulls over all these points*

*acknowledges the darkness and abusive qualities Delena has*

*continues to ship them anyway*

*has no regrets*

True Love Prevails

To the few remaining existing SErs, read this. Just read it.

DErs, you too.

Stefan and Elena were never real. Their “love” was fake. The only reason they were ever together was because of Markos’ spell.

Markos’ spell forced and programmed Elena to fall in love with Stefan and be with him. Just like it forced and programmed the rest of Silas and Amara’s Doppelgängers throughout time.

“But you know the life that we had… It wasn’t a spell or prophecy, it was real. We fell in love on our own.” -Stefan (5x18)

No Stefan. No. And this is where SErs get confused. They think Stelena were real based on Stefan’s words.

But Stefan wasn’t there when Quetsiya told Damon in 5x03, “Century after century I watched versions of Stefan and Elena find each other, like magnets. Always the same story, conquering all, falling in love. You didn’t think your brother was Silas’ first shadow? Destiny has been trying to get the doppelgängers together forever.”

Stefan wasn’t there when “destiny/the universe” was Markos and his spell.

Stefan thinks the only spell Markos cast on him and Elena, was the fake hallucinations/dreams. But little did he know, that Markos had cast another spell 1500 years ago that drew every Silas and Amara doppelgänger together and programmed them to fall in love and stay together to serve Markos’ agenda.

Stefan and Elena were never real.

And it’s funny how, they’ve always emphasized Damon & Elena as being real.

“I didn’t compel you in Atlanta because we were having fun. I wanted it to be real.”

“It’s the most real thing that I’ve ever felt in my entire life.”

“We’re messy and complicated but, we’re real.”

Delena real. Stelena fake.

“Elena was like a caged animal, ready to break free.” -Nina Dobrev [about Delena’s kiss in 3x19] (Bloody Night Con 2012)

“When I’m with him, it feels unpredictable, like I’m free.” -Elena (4x10)

Elena would’ve stayed caged all her life by Markos’ spell, if it wasn’t for Damon. He set her free. Their true love set her free.

“True Love prevails, universe be damned.”

So SErs what are you still doing here? Seriously.
