My Reaction When People Say They Hate Stefan
Because he is a nice guy?
Because he treats people with respect and acknowledges their rights?
Because he let Elena make her own choices?
Because he feels bad about his past and all the awful things he has done?
Because he (excluding Bonnie for this post) is the most selfless character on the show?
Because he frequently saves his brother and proves how much he loves him despite all the shit Damon gives him (their relationship is very one-sided)?
Because he is the voice of reason most of the time?
Because he tries to fix all of Damon’s mistakes?
Because he gives up his own happiness and safety to help others?
Because he was the only person (excluding Nadia) that treated Katherine with human decency when she was dying?
Because he overcomes all the shit and drama he is put through?
Because he always aims to be a better person and avoid hurting people?
Because no matter what he has a pure heart?
Because he understands what is and what isn’t acceptable?
Because he not only cared about Elena but also her family and friends and still cared about her and supported her (and her family and friends) when she left him for her brother?
Because he is a complex character that went through actual development and has an intriguing story that the show is meant to be about?
