I was asked to make my response rebloggable so:
Now, I’ve been as quiet as possible on Elena because I think there are people who follow me who actually like her and so I’ve been trying not to be a rude twat to them. However, I am not going to do so here, I’m going to say what I want and if people don’t like it there’s this button in the top right hand corner of my page and they can exit stage left.
I thought it was comical that Elena really thought that she could get Bonnie and Caroline to put aside their Damon hate just because she slept with him. Like, really? For a second I was like wow is this scene really happening…yep it is. It’s kind of sad because to me, Elena becoming a vampire is actually making her a worse character than she already was. When Caroline changed it made her a much better person, but with Elena it’s basically the opposite. She’s kind of got this ‘I don’t give a fuck” attitude and it’s super annoying. Like, when the girls weren’t happy with her that she slept with Damon what was her answer, kicking them out of a house that isn’t even hers (don’t even get mestarted on how Stefan is letting that idiot kick him out of his own house and how Damon is also letting it happen hence picking her over his own brother).
Her little line to Caroline about how easily Caroline jumped into bed with Damon in season one when they first met…I just shook my head in embarrassment that the writers even had Elena go there. Seriously, who is even writing the dialogue on this show anymore? First of all, you mean the crazy insecure Caroline who had hit on Stefan a bunch of times only to watch him deny her and pick Elena? Yeah, she was feeling down about herself and then a hot guy smiles at her and yeah who wouldn’t want to feel good at a point when they feel like crap. So yes, Caroline chose to be with the Damon the one time before anyone even knew who he was or that he was an asshole and vindictive fuck, so wow Elena nice “example” you listed there. And for Caroline to not even really defend herself pissed me off but after thinking about it it actually showed Caroline’s respect and restraint there because she could have made Elena look like a fucking moron and brought up how Damon compelled Caroline to do his bidding for a couple of episodes, but no she didn’t. And Elena just wants to bitch and complain cause her friends don’t want to hear about her sexy times with the guy who made their lives a living hell for almost a whole season (do people forget Damon was a bad guy in season one…anyone…Bueller?)? Yeah okay, writers. Damon killed Bonnie’smother, for you Elena…or did you forget that because you got a little P in your VG?
And then Elena “sacrificing” herself to the hybrids…first of all, those hybrids are fucking morons because how could they even think that Elena was more important to Klaus than Caroline? Sometimes I seriously facepalm at the plot in this show. And she thinks that because she made that little “No take me!” speech it made it okay that she was a complete brat and basically threw a tantrum when Caroline kept telling her the truth and her honest opinion, um no, it did not, not in my eyes. Do people think that Caroline is just being a hater? Do people not see that Caroline is looking out for Elena when she tells her that she doesn’t agree with Elena being with Damon? I think Delena stans sometimes are very quick to hate on characters who are against the pairing (Caroline, Stefan, Lexi, Klaus, Bonnie), without even really thinking about why they are “hating”.
Caroline hugging Elena at the end made me roll my eyes because it just signaled to Elena that she can act like a brat when she doesn’t get the answers from people that she wants and that people will just forgive her. I just, I don’t remember Caroline complaining about things as much as Elena has when she turned into a vampire. Caroline didn’t have everyone fawning all over her like basically all of the characters have been over Elena in the past 8 episodes of this season. Elena acts like she’s the only vampire in the history of ever, and like all of the struggles she’s dealing with are only happening to her.
I wish Katherine would come back as more than just a hallucination and smack Elena across the back of the head and tell her to stop acting like she’s so fucking special. She’s not. I also wish that Stefan would just let Elena go. She’s proven how unsuited she is for him, and I wish he would just leave her to be with Damon because they both deserve each other. Stefan deserves so much more, someone way better than Elena. Can he just go undagger Rebekah and leave town with Klaus and Caroline and be rid of it all?
So, these are just my thoughts. I won’t be tagging them and if people want to anon hate me I’m just going to delete it. I’m not trying to convince Elena lovers to see things my way, and they can’t convince me to see it theirs. I have my opinions, you have yours, no one is wrong or right, that’s the beauty of interpretation.
Thank you for this anon, it feels kind of good getting it out.
