I'm back! Sry about raising anyone's blood pressure with my 1:30p post yesterday framing Stef as the spurned lover better off without either Elena or Damon. Kinda put on my Klaus coat and stirred the pot to see what floated to the top. This is what I believe: TVD is not just the story of a girl torn between two brothers. It is the story of how her love for BOTH provides a path for their redemption. Damon with his impulsive violent behavior when things don't go his way, and the guilt he feels after. Stefan with his denial of his dark side, and his attempt to hide it from not only everyone around him but also himself. The Salvitore brothers have had many lifetimes wallowing in the guilt and pain of their actions after being turn into vampires, with no personal growth. Damon copes with turning off his humanity switch and Stefan copes with his denial. Elena (through her love) is providing a path for each of them to heal themselves.
So the triangle of the beautiful compassionate girl caught between two brothers is not about an end game with either of them. It is all about the journey not the destination and I don't see eternity with either Damon or Stefan as the point of the emotional swings. TVD resets the triangle not to piss off either fan base, but to allow the brothers progress on the path to continue. Their growth will only come through joy of loving acceptance and the pain of rejection. Unfortunately as F'd up as both of them are it's gona take a few times. Therefore Elena's love for each brother is always constant, but the "in love" is always in flux. It's natural for fans to pick their favorite hero to get the girl, and are willing to over look his faults as the relationship pendulum swings back and forth. When their guy is weak or f's up fans naturally attack the other side to shore up their guy. Just maybe the point of flipping the triangle time after time TVD is trying to provide viewers a way past their bias enabler attitudes to one of acceptance.
F*** me what am I rambling about - probably just a story about a fickled high school girl and two vampires who love her and hate everything else!
Great epioside for Stef. Yep got his heart ripped out (so did Elena by the look on her face), but he grew a pair and kept on walking when she said "Stefan wait" He's finaly clear of the 18 yr old who can't make up her mind. I mean come on stringing on two guys for 3 1/2 yrs - professing her love for one, and flirting with the other. At least she doesn't have to worry about choices anymore (SB) Please don't let her pull you back in for another round. You know its coming in 3 or 4 shows by the way she chased him out of the school. Take the time to get the ripper under control, and stay away from Damon, because he's nothing but bad news for you. He spent 3 seasons chasing your girl, and pushing Blood at you. Have some fun with Bex she's hot as you already know already, and wait for the real woman to come back to MF. Katherine is smokin - same package with 500 yrs experience. Any doubt who's better between the sheets? Con grats Stefan the albiltross is off you neck!
Honest Damon is being a jerk to his brother. He doesn't have a SB excuse for not being up front w/ Stef ,about Elena. They did spend the entire day together (brother bonding) on Burbon Street and the ride home the day after he slept w/Elena. Where was the talk? The next day at the cabin he lied about where Elena was and about telling her about the SB. Then it's send Elena home and hide out at the cabin for a week training the guy whose neck he broke. Cell phone seems to work fine if it's Elena. Then Elena's call on the porch she tell him Stef knows, Damon's responce "how'd he take it"Really Damon WTF.Face it Damon doesn't have the balls to talk to the brother he's supposed to care so much about! So he know's how much Stef is hurting, and just how long will he wiggle around talk. My bet is only when Stef hunts him up. No excuse Damon!!!!!
