I do believe Stefan is still in love with Elena and he’s just hiding it because he knows she doesn’t feel the same way about him and so there’s no need to broadcast it.
Yes, the tide will change in their new ‘terms.’
Well I think the writers want to get SE to a place of ‘closure’ just to turn it around later. And that probably goes hand in hand with Stefan’s comment about love and friendship as I felt it was probably applicable to all the ships or the prospect of one like Steroline. We see SE as friends right now and the idea of that will probably change in season six.
What, you got like a hard on over there? Well keep it in your pants cuz whatever rub you got out if it is done so kindly fuck off.
No, I wasn’t misquoting. Unfortunately the scene was I referring to was that deleted one from 2x11 between Stefan and Katherine. Although, I could have sworn there was a real scene like that somewhere. My memory, these days…
Yes, I can say that I agree with the post. The writers wanted it to come across as closure. They want you to think it’s over until they stir things up again which they will do. SE isn’t over. We’ll see a shift by season’s end or into season six.
LMAO I mean I’m not going to argue with that or anything hahaha ;)
Oh you’re not bothering me! Let’s see…
1. 1x10 (love scene)
2. 1x2 (first kiss)
3. 2x11 (hug scene)
4. 3x5 (Stefan resisting compulsion)
5. 4x1 (Elena tells Stefan she chose him)
Those aren’t necessarily in a particular order except for number one because that is probably my favorite :)
Unofficial 6. 1x20 (Elena saves Stefan)
Hey there! Well, what are you conflicted about? His sincerity? Here’s my take on it. He was inspired by Stefan. His brother, only moments before, had apologized to Damon for his selfish choice 145 years ago in forcing him to turn when that had not been Damon’s wish. Stefan said he just needed his brother and didn’t want to be alone which we can all see as Stefan loving his brother and not wanting to be without him. Suddenly there’s Damon in Elena’s bedroom trying to be selfless by letting her go. It was Damon trying—although he does fail at this time and time again. What I find so interesting about the whole thing in general has to do with the concept of what love is and how simple or complicated we make it especially within the fandoms. I’ve mentioned before there’s always this question of 'is it never giving up or is it being able to let someone go?' I don’t think the answer is all that simple. Recall Stefan asking Katherine— what is love to you? And she replies— Never giving up. This is obviously Damon’s philosophy as well. Katherine never really leaves Stefan alone, and neither does Damon leave Elena alone. Because they just don’t give up. Stefan on the other hand—-has an uncanny ability to let go. And so we see where Stefan had made this selfish choice to not respect Damon’s wish to die out of love, and this is exactly the way Damon loves. He doesn’t care what the other person’s feelings are (I’m talking about Elena here). He’s going to make selfish choices that go against what she wants out of, what? Love? He just doesn’t make apologies for it. He doesn’t feel guilty about it. So when Stefan does, when he does feel guilty, when he does apologize for the way he had loved Damon—well….he then tries to do right by Elena by selflessly letting her go even if there’s a contradiction in how he chooses to do so. Essentially, I believe he wanted to be sincere. It’s just that Damon doesn’t do selfless all that well.
Awww, thank you so much anon. You guys are spoiling me today. Your English was just fine my dear :)
Oh gosh, this question is always so unfair lol but I usually feel quite confident in my answer because I think it’s always been 1x10. Maybe it’s the nostalgia, maybe it’s the perfection in it, but it never fails to move me. And thank you so much!
I think that line was applicable for all the ships.
