They should’ve ended up together...
Elena looked at Stefan at his most vulnerable state, and she didn’t turn away. She was fascinated, loving him fully.
They both loved each other “so much” from their first night together, to the day she had to say goodbye. I love you wasn’t enough, they had to make sure it was clear how much they loved one another.
Elena fell for him instantly, no hesitation, Elena fell in love with every part and every side of Stefan. No matter what she felt towards Damon, it was always going to be Stefan.
With everything that happened, even with all the heartache Stefan would go back to Elena in a second without any question.
When they kissed, it was full of passion and love - the kind of kisses where it would ignite a fire in your body
Elena never gave up on Stefan. When he was the worst version of himself, she stood by him because she wouldn’t accept the fact that he would forever be a “ripper.” Elena pushed him, she fought for him, she did not give up on him. She did this all because she knew that he would never give up on her.
Stefan was Elena’s comfort. Whenever she’d hug him it was like she could finally breathe again, a relief came over her and she felt safe, because she was home.
Stefan changed everything for Elena.
They were supposed to have a future together. He knew her better than anyone else, and she knew him better than any person ever could. They were soulmates & there is no denying that.
