I Have Me
okay so my mom always told me that the people around you affect who you are and how you act
when elena was around stefan a lot, she always looked out for every one and was willing to die for the people she loved. she also gave people second chances.
elena’s been around damon a lot lately, and caroline said the elena she once knew would have given jesse a second chance.
so basically damon is a bad influence on her
When it’s real you can’t walk away.

I want to talk about this line and why I think it was said. He’s more or less protecting her. And protecting Elena, whether that be physically, verbally, however he does it, will always come naturally to Stefan. But in this instance, he is defending a choice that she made within a context he knows very little about. He is defending a choice that she made that prior to becoming a vampire and being with Damon, she absolutely has not and would not have made.
In S1, Vicky was out of control and was close to killing Elena when Stefan staked her in the back. However, unlike Elena, Stefan tried and tried tirelessly to prevent Vicky’s situation resulting in death. Death was Stefan’s last and final choice - a very, morose choice I might add - not his first.
Prior to S5, Elena aggressively protested and wrestled against any situation or scenario where the outcome might potentially result in a casualty. In pain. I don’t want anyone to get hurt - she repeated this and sentiments like it, over and over again. Predominately to Stefan. Why then, does he believe that she simply did ‘what she had to do’ when the (albeit arguable) truth is, she did not?
There’s acknowledging that she’s different as a vampire and with Damon and then there’s acknowledging she’s different because she’s a vampire and because she’s with Damon. While Caroline is in full belief of the latter, Stefan is not. Perhaps to protect himself - perhaps to protect her. Probably both. It’s almost validating in a way - if they’re both in denial, it only proves that there is something not quite right here. Stefan wanted Elena to enjoy being a vampire - he wanted her forever as a vampire but while she let him behead people and torture and kill and disregard the opportunity to save a life? Absolutely not. There needs to be acknowledgement here - and acknowledgement from both. That Elena has changed and is changing for the worst.

I used to sway back and forth between like and dislike but now for the most part, I’m indifferent.
The Stelena Diaries
Kill or be Killed
It obvious that Stefan and Elena are meant to be together. It’s obvious that they are soulmates because in every scene you can tell how much they love each other. No one fights for each other or fights with each other as much as they do and no one keeps fighting if you don’t truly love that…
fuck everything this hurts
