Ellena

Back in S1, I used to be really excited before every episode and relate to characters, including Elena...I'm wondering, were there changes in the writing staff later?

It seems the writing went downhill once they brought in the Originals, despite how stunning they are. Katherine turned into a tragic villain and the writing made it clear they didn't know what to do with her.

a ton of GG fans in their late 20's and 30's say the exact same thing about Chair.

Because their minds sugarcoat the pairing.

 

CHAIR and DE at the core WERE a pairing based around two people equally chalenging each other. Thats great, most of my OTPs are like that. except that writers already went beyond that idea with those two pairings, ruining them completely into something completely boring, bland, misogynistic and sick.

That chick just killed me with the Elena/Matt reference, I mean the other two you could write of as just general delusion but Matt & Elena, you have to be a total cardboard psycho to think of them as a couple 

Melena actually has quite a huge following, bothf rom people who hate the cardboard duo and from genuine fangirls.

Yeah, which is funny for Katherine. Remember when she was THE BIG MYSTERY of the show? It seems like a joke now lol

Writing went down wrong even earlier.  around the season two premiere. DE was turned to shit. SE became even more shitty than before and every character became a mere sketch of who they were.

 

I actually loved Katherine's backstory. that was the last episode I truly enjoyed in the show

It actually was the last decent bit of characterization for both Elena and Katherine, as two extremes, implying the similar yet opposite ideas of cptsd, with Katherine being traumatized by her family's deaths to the point of commiting herself to a role ov "villain" as a self-preservation and emotional-protection mechanism, while ELena, being traumatized by her family's deaths commited herself toa  role of this saint who cares as a way to shoulder her own guilt(because back then the Elena's backstory was still all about that she snuck out of her home to a party, got drunk and parents had to come her pick her up", making her the main guilty party of her death).

 

The episode nicely explored it and sort of showed both girls healing, with Katherine becoming more Elena-like and Elena more Katherine-like.

 

And then the show threw it out the window(AGAIN), completely destroying whatever would have been interesting in Elena's character or would have justified her horrible horrible lack of personality or any sort of characterization in S2....instead the show went on to do the same mistakes with her character in S3.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
