puhleease dont expect something that creative will come out of plec's fat assWhy not? Its bassically a rip off of First Evil anyway.
Actually there's nothing wrong with this. That's called gray morality and its the basis of our life.
However there are SEVERAl factors that the show needs to get right before it can even try to pull that shit off:
There HAS to be a sense of in-universe understanding whether character's actions are right or wrong. Redemption has a lot to do with how other characters perceive the said cahracter.
There HAS to be a line the said character to be redeemed does not want to cross.
There HAS to be a progression in redemption instead of the character being stuck as a revolving door - doing fucked up shit one moment and then repenting the next. That's not "redemptive badboy" thats psychopathy.
The character to be redeemed should have SOMETHING about him beyond his "wah wah I am bad mode".
Its actually very good idea to have your "positive" characters make bad or "evil" decisions and your "negative" villains to make good decisions. It blurs the lines, makes plot more unpredictable, but yet again that relies ENTIRELY on the moral sense of the show - the actions taken have to be perceived as such in order for any sort of moral alignment to matter in anyway.
TVD fails in all of that.
I did not say there was something wrong with this idea, I just meant that I don't like that almost all modern tv shows apply sort-off the same formula with it.....plus I still believe that not every character can be or should be redeemed.
plus I still believe that not every character can be or should be redeemed. And I agree with this.
There's nothing wrong with showing HOW the character got to where he/she is, but this show is incapable of doing it without woobiefying them.
Just discovered a new parallel:
In 1x02, Stefan and Elena are scolded for not paying attention in class cause they are too busy flirting. Their high school class.
In 4x04, Damon and Elena are scolded are scolded for not paying attention in class cause they are too busy flirting. Her first college class.
Delena is about growing up and discovering yourself and finding someone who fits with what you have become. Just like college.
That’s how you OTP bitches.
There were two fans on my dash complaining that Ian isn't filming in New Orleans, "do they want the new show to fail?" Holy shit they're funny
That bitch's weed must have been laced with coke, meth, ex and ALL THAT for her to actually jump from one scene to an admittedly related one and then form a conclusion thats so out of this world that it makes Game of Thrones look like Glee. Thats what i CANNOT and will NEVER understand about DE fans. They will use the fact that the sky is blue to justify the EPICNESS of DE. Like what the fuck does DE have to do with ONE college scene. These people.....
