Elijah is in love with Elena........................
"I know it's a little obvious in the world of Vampire Diaries, where everyone falls in love with Elena, but I agree that Elijah sees something beautiful in her,"
Also pretty much confirms his death...Posted 2/6/2012 8:10:56 AM #
They are stupid. It was just on the last episode about how they was going to kill her so I doubt he is in love with her.Posted 2/6/2012 8:14:18 AM #

Ill just repost what I wrote in katherine thread.
Mary sue traits:
- What personality? In these cases, it's fairly blatant the author is just writing the character for amazing stuff to happen to instead of a character that actually exists as a person. Obviously, this is only a Mary Sue trait if what happens gives the character special powers, fantastic romances,
- Highly persuasive, regardless of the actual content of their conversations. Everyone finds her opinions are just better than their own - even when they're usually stubborn bastards. This is especially likely in an Author Tract.
- Friend to All Living Things.
- Is either brave and cheerful (despite her past), or unnecessarily mopey and depressed.
- Occasionally a complete asshole, especially when she's supposed to be all of the above. Nobody will call her out on her abrasive, casually abusive behavior. Plus, strong badass characters who would normally rip someone's spleen out for looking at them cross-eyed are instantly cowed and become meek, spineless Wangst factories as soon as she "puts them in their place."
- Her "major flaws" will be stubbornness and a bad temper. These will only ever help her, never hurt her — because she's always right, so whatever cause she dedicates herself to with such stubbornness will be a good cause, and whoever she loses her temper with will deserve it.
- Inexplicable and/or poorly defined abilities in general, especially if they play no factor in the plot after their introduction
- Regardless of what skill level the canon characters have established, she might just simply be better than them, often in ways that do not make sense
- So Beautiful, It's A Curse™. While being attractive isn't a qualifier of Mary Sue (who wants to be ugly?), it's a bit excessive to try and play it as being some sort of disadvantage. Regardless, her astounding beauty (or astounding lack of it) will make her stand out from the crowd - or so we're constantly being told.
- Purple seems to be popular. After all, Graceful Ladies Like Purple, Purple Is Powerful, and Supernatural Is Purple. This applies especially when the canon characters are a Five-Man Band color-coded with red, yellow, green, blue and white/silver/black/pink.
- Magic jewelery. It might be used as a Green Lantern Ring to justify her abilities.
- Some Wish Fulfillment with a character you think is hot isn't that bad. But Mary Sue seems to grab their attention straight away. Even if they already have a stable love interest in canon, that relationship will be treated as either non-existent, or the couple will be split up in some way. Because obviously everyone loves her.
- Even the characters who don't have sex with her give her more heed than they normally would. Characters she likes can't stop talking about her beauty and power. Characters she doesn't like can't stop making themselves look bad by insulting her.
- Previously-established personalities change in reaction to her. Arrogant gimps may admire her for everything. Sweet, mild-mannered characters (that she and the author don't like) insult and degrade her. A leader with responsibilities pays attention only to her. Young, reckless characters who would never settle down just yet will become totally reliable. Evil characters follow her around like a puppy or seem uncharacteristically obsessed with her. Extremely competent characters become stumbling buffoons who require her help to do anything. The characters in general just seem unnaturally focused on her, positive or negative.
- Chances are good that Sue will be making all the calls that should be somebody else's prerogative
- She may have relationships of some kind with multiple major canon characters. For example, she's the secret daughter of A who gave her up to be adopted by B's parents, making her his sister, and she goes on to have a passionate affair with C, remaining friendly with him even though she goes on to marry D, and she's E's best friend, F's closest advisor...and so on.

- Mary Sue is always on the Spotlight-Stealing Squad. Without her, there would not be a story.
- If she has any flaws intentionally written in by the creator, expect them to be Informed or not really flaws to begin with. Clumsyness and Stubborness for example.
- Sympathetic Sue has an unusually Dark and Troubled Past to the excess, but other subtypes often have them too, just to emphasize how brave and special she is to live through it. This past is never really a point in the story, just dropped casually into the conversation to get attention. (Backstory Types: Heartwarming Orphan - Plane crashes and car accidents are increasingly common ways to make her feel responsible, without actually doing anything wrong.)
- She might be a Blithe Spirit and reform an entire population center of its negative qualities. Bonus points if this involves The Power of Love
- Redeems the villains through her overwhelming goodness.
- If she ever does anything wrong, she's both instantly remorseful about it and Easily Forgiven by those she wrongs.
- Sometimes, the Sue has only one supernatural power: being The Chosen One. Her chosenness makes her critically important to the world, but since she has no other godlike powers, she will spend most of the story being kidnapped (usually by a villainous love interest) and/or otherwise victimized.
- Her name is sometimes a gemstone, a flower, celestial bodies, (i.e. Luna, Stella, Celeste) or a pretty color (e.g. Violet, Sapphire). (Elena is a form of Helen, goes back to Luna and Moon)
- Pressing concerns of the actual story such as a villain who's actively trying to take over the world, aren't even addressed because everybody is too busy taking an interest in the new girl's life.
LIKE SERIOUSLY???!!! ELIJAH??!! i mean, it is ok when people fall of Katherine since she is more interesting than Elena and actually have a style but ELENA GILBERT??!!! WHY!!!! ... let me guess, Tyler will leave Caroline and fall for Elena, Jeremy will want to have incest with her, all Originals will fall for blank slate, Alaric will fall for Elena and other female characters can die. OMG. i think that it is a bullshit that Elijah is in love with ElenaPosted 2/6/2012 11:00:54 AM #
I don't know how old that article is but he said barely a year ago that Elijah may like a Elena a little. With Elijah, IMO it seems like Elena and Katherine just gives him nostalgia on Tatia.Posted 2/6/2012 11:02:04 AM #
