I hear you. But i just can't shake the feeling that there is something not .....right (for lack of a better word) about Elena. I'm so not bashing her. All i'm saying is the writers might feel its time for her to smile more and be more involved in the actual doing of SOMETHING. That y i think the Stefan storyline is so exerptly placed, she can now HELP to save him. Also, it's so NOT a coincidence that Damon has apologized just 1 episodes ago for forcing her to drink blood and respecting her decisions. The writers are putting everything in place for them to be on an equal understanding with each other. They are bringing them closer in EVERY WAY and giving them the kind of relationship that she has with Stefan. Trust and understanding
Hey Maria Lov2bLov. I'm from Jamaica, but i'm studying in GA right now.
In responce to both your post and your email. I straight up think that Elena NEEDS TO GET OVER HERSELF. I like the fact that for once we have a human inlove with a vamp who doesn't wanna change is refreshing, but lets be realistic, OFCOURSE SHE'S GONNA CHANGE. No debate. I think deep down she even realizes that herself.
Back to her better half. Stefan, and i'm glad about this, will be mainly focused on himself and his inner ripper battle. As i posted before, it's time that he developed and evolved as a vampman because he's been suppressing alot of stuff for over 100 years. He needs to deal with the blood issue first, then with his feelings for Katherine, when they finally catch up to her. Although i'm a stelena fan, i truely believe that Stefan can be happy in a relationship with either Kat or Elena. But which Stefan we will get by mid season 3 is still up in the air. We know that he'll be all badass ripper for the first couple of seasons then PROBABLE change back. Unlike other fans though, i don't want him to change back all the way. I want some of his NOT BAD BUT NEW ways to stay with him. That way it won't be like a complete 360 degree turnabout for his character but more of a learning and growing process for him that makes him stronger. I also don't want Elena and him to get right back together when they eventually save him. I want HIM to be the one to say HOLD UP A MINUTE. I've change, you've changed (maybe/maybe not for Elena, but Stefan def has). Let me work on me for a while before i get LOST in you again.
Sorry for the long post but that's what i think.
I'm getting a DANGEROUS VYBE that i have a feeling where the writers are going to take Elena's character. We all agree that she is too perfect, so they're probably gonna dirty her up a bit by.......making her be with Damon. Think about it. Miss goody-too-shoo Gilbert is perfect and simple when she's with Stefan, what could spice up her character more and make her more comlex than putting her with Damon, in any capacity. I'M STRAIGHT OUT SAYING THEY'RE GONNA USE DAMON TO MAKE ELENA MORE REALISTIC AND BELIEVABLE AS A CHARACTER. As a Stelena fan, i'm not sure i want that, BUT i can't deny that it will inject some much needed "character" in her character.
I hear you, but my heart strings tug for Stelena's relationship. Hopefully someway, somehow they can have a child.
I know thsi isn't the place but i just had to say this. I absolutely hate that the writers of GG have stuck Dan with this girl who keeps leaving him for other guys and not appreciating him enough. They make Serens'a character into too much of a self-centered, airless, bimbo, bonehead, who can't make up her mind. To me, Dan is the most cultured and intelligent guy on GG BY FAR and how stereotypical of the writers to make him fall for the most flirtatious and dumbest character on the show. They make her too frail and makes it seem as if she doesn't know her own mind. I'm sick of the run around she gives Dan every other episode. That being said, DARENA FOR EFFING LIFE. THEY ARE ADORABLE TOGETHER.
I never thought of that before. You are so right. We've seen Damon before Elena happened to him but we haven't seen Stefan before Elena. We've seen Stefan before Lexi but what happened to the years in between these two women. Klaus said that Stefan destroyed that entire village in 19 something and he met Lexi back in the 1800s. So what i'm getting is she didn't immediately cure him of himself, it was a journey, one the audience was just told hapened and now, i hope, the writers will explore him in all his badassness. Just as they developed Damon in season 2 i hope season 3 will be mostly about Stefan. To me, he has the capacity to be even more complex than Damon cause we know what makes Damon tick but we have no idea about Stefan as yet. Can you say AWESOME
I guess Stefan's not a wise Confucius then. LOL
She does clarify that this was her first impression of the actress and character, as was mine, until i had something to compare her to. Elena to Kat and how Nina handles them both. She is absolutely stunning with Kat but becauses Elena is so drab, it comes of as Nina being drab. Elena comes to life when she or her loved ones are in danger and i think the writer's should expand her character to show MORE in other instances as well. Or else she'll be just like Bella, danger magnet is the only thing they will both exceed in
I don't think that they're saying the actress is acting the character badly. It's more that the writer's have given her bad material to act and i agree. The character named Elena is too one dimensional. She needs something to do. Her bro is a budding vamp hunter, her best friends are a witch and a vamp etc, etc. I know she's a dopplewhatever but thats who she is and not what she does. Quite frankly SHE DOES NOTHING
By the way Elijah's Hottie, i'd love to here your opinion on the thread i started entitled "Delena needs to happen so that Stelena can be endgame" please.
