What's with all the hating Elena???
ok that's like saying 'oh hey it's okay for elena to act like a douche to them as long as he isn't towards elena' because fact of the matter is, with elena he bothers to show that different side of him that makes him so apologetic. but with her friends, he's still an asshole, still wanting to put them in harm and still doesn't give a crap. and its because of the relationships he forged with them before he bothered to change? really? cause imo out of what he's 'done' to her friends and for what he'd 'done' to elena, i think what he did to elena is the absolute worst. yet he's wanting to make amends and what? her friends aren't worth that side of him too? that's a horrible way to look at things. horrible.
Damon isn't a polite person. He's an arrogant jerk that is what sets him apart from Stefan. He used to be and he learnt it got him nowhere like you agreed Damon in 1864 was boring because he was polite. So, he doesn't want to show everybody his vulnerable side the same way Bonnie didn't want anybody(meaning Damon) to know the weakness witchcraft caused her and the same way Katherine became the world's most selfish person for self preservation. But that doesn't mean he doesn't want to make amends with them. If you remember on founder's day, in the morning he bullied Jeremy to tell him to stop treating Elena the way he was treating her and after he witnessed Anna get killed, the first person he went to was Jeremy and apologized and wanted to erase his pain again but this time with his permission. He did the same on the carnival- bullied him and then when Jeremy and him had their talk later that night he said " I don't do the big brother thing too well." and Jeremy gets pissed off but then Damon finds that Jeremy is trying to find some connection or purpose in life so he tells him about his father hating vampires. The reason why Damon acts like a jerk around Jeremy even so is so that he stays out of the business because he knows he can't take it. As for Bonnie, she calls it upon herself and not without reason he has done awful things and she doesn't want to let them slide but still he thanks her on Founder's Day for then supposedly deactivating the Gilbert device and again when she helps in knocking out Mason. He ill-treated Caroline to begin with like hell but when Caroline saved them and revealed her identity to her mom and her mom claimed her to be gone forever, it was Damon who told her how wrong she was.Why? Because he knew how it felt like and for her own safety(along with his and Stefan's) while it seems like he is threatening her in Rose, he's having quite a friendly convo with her but he warns her to stay away from Tyler because a werewolf bite could kill her; he warned Elena in a similar way when she wanted to go save Stefan from the tomb vampires. It's how he is. And when he said he wanted "Vampire Barbie" dead he didn't really mean it, it's like when he said he wished Elena dies to distract herself from her suicidal tendencies because he knows how much Caroline means to Elena and the sheriff. Damon till date is a jerk to Alaric and Alaric's fine with it-why? Because he's realized Damon is a jerk but he cares. That's how him and Elena became friends. He feels safe around her and also because she is the only person who understands him besides Stefan(sometimes even better) so he's nicer to her and even so he's a jerk even to her(Right after she told him he had lost her forever he told her that she was like Katherine- I mean it's long stretch and then the next day he's like "So this is where you spend your time stabbing people in the back?"). The only time he was extremely nice to her was when he gave her the Petrova book and then apologized and then he went back to being mean because that's how he deals and when he told her that Stefan hadn't drunk the people blood and when he confessed his love to her only to erase it. According to me, he's had his vulnerable moments with all of them and he tries to be nice. If he was always nice wouldn't that make him Stefan. So yeah he is changing in a very slow way but he is. The only two people he's actually shown himself to are Elena and Jeremy because he feels he owes it to them. Damon has done awful things and I'm sure he doesn't regret 3/4 of them but the two things he regrets the most are turning Vicki(because he said he was sorry for his part to Jeremy and he barely apologizes) and snapping Jeremy's neck. No one's denying that those acts were awful(considering Damon-the Jeremy neck snap was understandable but not easily forgivable and she hasn't even forgiven him yet), not even Damon, but that's the event that made him reconsider his killing scheme and his completely selfish attitude which just made him more miserable seeing what he did to Elena. Elena didn't mind the jerky attitude just the crazy impulsive killing which may I say he is working on( Sheriff compare to Bree). So, I know he's given Elena the world's shit and why she still cares is beyond me but she does because she knows that Damon has his humanity and she holds onto that thought and she understands him better than anybody.
she's not like Caroline or Bonnie or Jenna or Jeremy who if they died it wouldn't be as a big deal as if Damon, Stefan, Katherine or Elena died....(I hope they don't die).
Actually, people have really grown to love Caroline and they can't really kill Bonnie 'cause she's the only witch friend and Jeremy's got his immortality ring. If they killed Jenna nobody would really care- I mean it would impact the story but people wouldn't mind.
People actually love Caroline more than Elena at the moment so they would freak.
But I get your point.
If caroline died I would be so devastated, I love her!
I think that one of the reasons for Elena to be getting all this hate this season is the appearence of all these super fun girls in Mystic Falls. First there's Katherine, since they're played by the same actress (the amazing Nina Dobrev), it's inevitable to compare them and Kat is so fun and bitchy. Then there's Caroline (like I said, I adore her), and even Bonnie (I gotta say, I wasn't a huge fan of hers, but I think she's getting more interesting). So Elena, even though she is the main girl character, is just getting kindda boring.. Though I'm sure the writers will come up with something to make her more interesting. I have a lot of faith in Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, they make great tv
I for one personally like Elena a lot. I can easily relate with the emotions she goes through and I think she portrays them at the appropriate time. She is stubborn when necessary, brave and selfless as well, not to mention intelligent. For a 17 year old she's pretty courageous and I think kick-ass. The problem is she's human with no special powers. All the other females we've been introduced to are vampires, or witches, with the exception of Jenna who also is a human and most ppl think her character is useless.
Also, I've noticed the people that don't like Elena are mostly Damon fans. They don't like the way she treats him...but she has good reason to treat him the way she does. She wants to trust him she wants to let him in but he proves he's unworthy and the writers have continuously explained in interviews that it's going to take a long time for Damon to be worthy in her eyes, which makes sense after everything he's put her through. Think of all the turmoil, it began when he arrived to follow his brother and get Katherine out of the tomb.
Sure Damon is a great character but Elena isn't making him boring, their presence together actually reveals his humanity. That's y i like her she brings out the good in all the characters. She brings all the characters who normally would want nothing to do with each other together, because they love her and are willing to fight for her...and as a result the show does revolve around her. She's the piece that puts everything together.
if my dreams of tvd comes true elena dying would be on top of all next being damon telling her he was insane to even think he loved her the third would be i can go on but it always comes back to her dying !!!
for me i still have faith in Elena so my first wish is an in-your-face where Elena starts loving Damon but Damon doesn't love her anymore. second is Elena changing for the better and 3rd will be Damon getting it on with Katherine!! ahaha
I agree....but.....I'm not saying that it's all about Elena....I'm saying that without her there would be no show....
well maybe for some people there will be no show but im sure many still loves that. if Elena died or something yes there will be that really big part missing but i can actually live with it ahaha.. im not a total hater im sure deep as in very very deep inside me i still wish to like elena again but from what is being shown now i don't think i would want more of her in the show.
Caroline or Bonnie or Jenna or Jeremy who if they died it wouldn't be as a big deal as if Damon, Stefan, Katherine or Elena died....(I hope they don't die).
I love Caroline so i would not want her to die. also her fanbase is getting larger every episode so i think she's as important as Elena already. Bonnie im not sure but she's a big element in the story much bigger than Elena actually so i don't think you should level her with Jenna ahahah...
I have always disliked Elena. She is the "Oh poor me" girl. " Help me, someone needs to save me.". Blah blah lah. Just like Bella and Sookie. She is whiney and always tries to be the martyr. Its really annoying. Now that she is a vampire she is even worse. Really over it. Cant wait to see the Originals in hopes that I will never have to see and hear her again.
