Stelena FTW. Damon is so pathetic and we all know he is going to carry out there relationship far too long and when everyone finds out: BAM over!! :)) Stefan will always be there for Elena and when she gets the cure she will love him more again. I have never gotten the impression that Elena loves Damon in “that” way. I have always thought that she has loved him in a caring way. Also don’t forget that this story is literally Stefan’s story because he will get the girl!

btw don’t get me wrong..I love Damon, just not Damon and Elena!!

Very disappointed that its going to turn out to be a sire bond. Doesn’t Damon EVER get the girl? He’s much cuter and got a far better personality than stefan. Catherine already told him that she never loved him and wanted Stefan. What a rip of a stupid turn of events. Thumbs down to making elenas feelings for Damon a fake. BOO!!

i think stefan is great: he’s sweet, HOT, funny, and his love for elena is so sexy. and elena’s feelings for damon ARE real, no one can question that. it’s just the intensity of the feelings that is calling into question. even julie p said that elena probably wouldnt have gotten into bed with damon that soon. they basically made elena and damon rush into things, the making love part shouldnt come until later but i guess they couldnt wait? idk made it seem like romantic and more fling like to me. i was pretty upset too. them two sleeping together is like a big F-U in stefan’s face, when i think he has done nothing to deserve it. damon wanted katherine, slept with rose, caroline, and andie. stefan? has been faithful even though katherine and rebeccah tempted him. it’s just sad to see that the producers really played him this season making him look like a lost puppy.

elena better end up with stefan -___- what a waste of time these last few seasons have been. watching them meet, face obstacles, lose and found each other again, just for her to end up with none other than damon.

delena fans were upset? try being a selena fan and watching that episode, there were some parts i couldnt watch.smh

Sire bonds do make vampires relationship to who they are sired to better/stronger but Elenas feelings for Damon have always been strong but her feelings for Stefan were always stronger. Stefan ruined there relationship by never telling her what was really going on and Elena always seemed to go to Damon when she wanted to do something because he usually let her do it with him accompanying her. Also Damon has always been around and was there for her when she became a vampire as stefan was unable to help her when she fed. I think that Elena should have stronger feelings for Damon than stefan right now.

In this case a sire bond does not equate to being forced to love him. He did not tell her to love him, he did not tell her to have sex with him, he did in fact try to patch things up with her and Stefan. She had feelings for him already. They have grown more intense, just like she said. It happens sometimes even when nothing more than the lowly human pheromone is involved. Sometimes two people just begin to click inexplicably and two other people who had previously seemed perfect for each other grow apart with familiarity. People say that your first love is your truest love. That is almost always absolute nonsense. They also say you never get over your first love. Trust me , you do.

Bonnie and Damon didn’t happen in the books (at least not in the REAL LJ Smith’s books). He did have a soft spot for her, but was never in love with her.

And you do know I’m the real last LJ vampire diary book dark reunion, she and stelena endgame right? And yes Damon did admit he loved Bonnie in the hunter series which LJ wrote. She admitted that she wasn’t sure when they asked to write more books if she was gonna do a bamon or delena endgame so get your facts right.

The last book LJ Smith wrote was Midnight. She started the framework for Phantom, in the Hunter series, but was fired and replaced by a ghost writer for the last 3 books. So I do have MY facts straight. I never jump into a debate without them. I don’t consider the last 3 books her books, because they aren’t. Look it up if you don’t believe me. She even tells the story on her blog in the discussion forums and with a few blog entries. The publishers wanted her to end the triangle and put Elena with Stefan. LJ wouldn’t guarantee that. She wanted to finish the story her way. So no, Stelena wasn’t endgame. IF it were, she would’ve been able to give them what they wanted and there wouldn’t have been a ghost writer.

I’m shocked you’re not aware of this. A lot of her fans refused to read the Hunter series because of this. For those fans (like me), the story ended at Midnight. And in that book, Elena confesses her love to Damon. Damon cared about Bonnie, but it was Elena he was in love with.

Go ahead, look it up. Get your facts straight. :)

It’s make me laugh how people think Stefan is the good brother. He was the ripper before and he make a list of his victim on his wall. Ok, he is sober and eat rabbit now, not from blood bag, but that’s not because he don’t want to, it’s because he can’t! he turn into psycho when he drink human blood.

And they all rumbling Damon is the bad guy, he drink from the blood bag too now, isn’t Caroline do to? what’s make people think his the bad guy? and now they all love Klaus with Caroline, isn’t that in this series Klaus is the one who responsible for almost everyone’s death? it’s disgust me how Stefan can work with Klaus, Caroline having a good time with Klaus… isn’t it he’s the one who responsible of Jenna’s and Alaric death? and they can be that close… euhh…. Elena and Damon never forgive and trust Klaus, while Stefan and Caroline seems okay with it… tsk tsk who’s the bad guy now?

They all should remember, Klaus is want to have Stefan as a partner at the first place because he knows what Stefan capable of and that he as sadist just like him, or even more?

Ooh please just reflect on what you say! Stop blaming Stefan for what he has done in the past… Yes he tries hard to be a good person because he wants to be forgiven for all the murders he comitted before!
And yeah Damon drinks from the blood bags now as you said. Don’t you think it’s a shame to blame on Stefan whereas Damon killed Lexi (his brother’s best friend, his brother’s true friend), tried to kill Caroline and a loooot of other people in Mystic Falls to satisfy his own dessires ?
Stop hating on Stefan all he has done and still does is for Elena and Damon. Do you think Damon cares about his brother’s reaction now he has Elena ? I don’t think so. So who is the bad guy, huh ?

I’m sorry but I have to respond to you. Stefan’s murders are in the present, not just the past. My god, did you not watch the this latest episode? He just killed a guy in the hospital so that Jeremy could kill another vampire. Thereby forcing Jeremy to go off a cliff and loose a little more of his self int he process. All in the name of Elena. At least Damon had the consideration to try and find another hunter so as to not put Jeremy through this. Stefan has lost his mind.

Yes, Damon did kill Lexy and that was messed up. But Stefan killed Andie last year and no one ever thinks about that. Damon has always put Elena first and accepts her for who she is not who she was. Also, if you don’t want to talk about Stefan’s ripper past then maybe you shouldn’t bring up Damon’s past either.

actually Damon broke the sire bond with Elena. he did it for her and stefan. and Damon loves Elena so doing this is hard for him. and everything he does is for elena. remember when he ran in front of her and took the arrow for her? face it Elena always loved Damon but stefan seemed like the safer choice. Then everyone of her so called friends were openly pro stefan. and Damon always loved Elena and knew that if they were to be together it had to be on her terms.And if she didnt want him then what about all those stolen kisses? what about when she dreamt of having sex with steffy and he turned into Damon? What about there actual sex scenes? Tyler said that when your sired it doesnt effect your emotions and Damon never forced her to have sex with him she wanted it all on her own. and if stefan really loved Elena he would accept the fact that she doesnt want to be with him anymore. and he wouldnt want to change her because shes not turning out to be what he thought she would be. Damon loves her whether shes human or not. the oonly reason he’s trying to get her humanity back is because he knows this is not what she wanted. and lets not forget the reason Elena is a vampire is because of stefan!!!! if it werent for Damons blood she’d be dead. so steffy should be thanking Damon up and down for what he did!!

all that ripper stuff was way back then, before we “technically” get to meet him. everyone has a past, whereas we meet damon when he was the bad guy. stefan did his best to overcome his evil doings in the past, and it shows. also, please dont forget that the only reason he became the ripper again (forcefully i might add) was because damon got bitten by tyler. if stefan didnt care about damon, he wouldnt have left and sold himself over to klaus. so it’s not like stefan doesnt have under control.

At first like all Delena hard fans, I was really hate how they turn this (finally happen) moment into crap when Elena’s real feeling to Damon is still questionable… but I think it’s a good think, I’m sure and I believe that it would be super awesome when they fix this sire thing and Elena feeling to Damon is still the same, that she’s finally admit that she madly in love with Damon. So Stefan and Caroline and everyone else could finally accept that Elena and Damon are meant to be. We know Elena’s in love with Damon even before she become vampire, she just choose Stefan because after all drama in her life she can’t handle being judge by everyone around her who doesn’t like Damon. While vampire Elena couldn’t fight it anymore. :D

Damon and Elena will end up together. In the next episodes they will still be together despite the dire bond. The dire bond probably isn’t’t even real and if it is like Julie Plec SAID there is more hope for Selena then ever. These are basic facts Delena will end up together. Paul Wesley said he wants Stephan to get a new love interest, Elena loved Damon before she turned. Im really condfident that Damon and Elena will stay together next episode if I’m wrong then you stele a fans can tell me how wrong Iam. Delena forever!

Also, damon doesn’t know elena is sired at this point. When stefan says : ” she was sired to you and you took advantage.” He’s talking about charlotte (who was also sired to damon) NOT elena.

I was really disappointed that the writers introduced the sire bond into Damon and Elena’s relationship, especially how they kept interrupting the flow of an incredibly hot love scene to reveal the plot twist. There are a hundred other ways to create obstacles or drama in a Damon/Elena relationship. I think Elena’s feelings for Damon will prove to be real but it’s going to be sad to see Damon doubt everything. Her feelings better be real because Damon and Elena are the better romantic couple on the show in my opinion.

UGH i hated this week’s episode, but not for the same reasons as most. i hate how damon and elena, both who supposedly cared about stefan, treated him like crap. they hooked up about a day after the break up. when stefan walked out of his house, i felt so bad and couldnt see how elena who supposedly is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO in love with him can just watch him leave and get with damon. i dont know how i feel about stefan and elena being together anymore, she’s a selfish *****. she acts like she’s so sweet and all, but she’s worse than katherine. at least katherine owns up to her evilness. the sire bond thing HAD to happen because then stefan would have no choice but to leave, and tvd is a story (imo) about stefan and elena’s love NOT damon. i know the books and the series are different, but damon is the antagonist. i think if he wasnt so cute (ian) there would be a smaller fan based, although i personally think paul is wayyyy cuter. i support stefan and elena because their love is pure and strong, and every time they are together it warms my heart. elena and damon on the other hand i cant watch, because the whole relationship is wrong, just wrong.

Even though Elena maybe sired to Damon, the sire bond does not make a vampire (or hybrid for that matter) develop romantic or sexual feelings for the one who sired them. That said, and according to the confirmation by Julie Plec that Elena is in fact sired to Damon, we now know that she will not reject the blood bag test Stefan dared Damon to do. Does this mean Elena does not love Damon? Not at all! she maybe more in agreement with him but her feelings are just that, real feelings…I believe the sire bond may have been an element in her decision to take their relationship to the next level so quickly, but by NO means was the cause of it…. The writers are trying to please both shippers, and this is how they are doing it…Elena loves Damon/Elena does NOT/Elena MAY love him…maybe… One things is for sure, she will go back to Stefan even though she slept with his brother…no matter what explanation is given, the fact of the matter is that Damon loves Elena no matter how she is, human or vampire,and no matter if she loves him back or not. Stefan, on the other hand, is desperate to find a cure so she can be as he wants her to be… I hate how Stefan has stepped all over everybody in his quest to get what he wants (disguised as being done for Elena’s sake). He is most definitely doing it for himself and he is prepared to even sacrifice Jeremy if that is why it will take (contrary to Elena’s wishes) I know Elena will go back to being human and will go back to Stefan soon, but it hurts to think how devastated Damon will be by the way she has trampled his heart repeatedly. The only satisfaction I have is that Stefan will NEVER be sure if her feelings for Damon were real or not…that will be the pebble in his shoe and that makes me extremely happy… We now have seen Stefan’s true colors, and he is NOT all nice and good…he is also manipulative, selfish and controlling…I guess that’s a family trait, but at least Damon owns that and doesn’t pretend that he isn’t as Saint Stefan does..l see in the bear future Another round of Stelena episodes coming up! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

i know everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but seriously? after all the evil, selfish, and horrible things that damon has done throughout the whole series-you can ignore all that, but you dislike stefan for being selfish this time? when has damon not sacrifice people for this own personal gain? countless times. stefan is the PERFECT match for her because he loves her enough to respect her decisions. that’s the one thing i never liked about damon: he never listens to what elena wants, and doesn’t respect her enough to believe that she can make the right choice. yes, it’s all sexy and all for now but who can say that they want to be with someone so controlling? you say that it’s wrong for stefan to use jeremy, um did you forget who snapped jeremy’s neck and almost killed him because elena didn’t return his feelings? also, if it was up to damon elena would get to live but everyone around her would be dead because damon would rather keep her alive than think about how horrible life would be for her if she had to be alone.

Stefan does usually respect Elena’s wishes–though not so much anymore–even when it’s dangerous and deadly to do so. Damon respects Elena’s wishes UNLESS it threatens her life. What do you think is more like a real relationship in the real world? I don’t know a single couple who would do it Stefan’s way. Not one. And many of those couples have been happy together for MANY years. Just sayin’.

I have a problem with this. I think most Delena fans would because like others we all know Damon was a total bad a** in season one but we got more of a glimpse of why he is the way he is and why he does the things he does. So in his defense when he does something like snap her brothers neck he does it because he cant control his emotions when they are above his tolerance. We dont know why Stefan can’t control his blood lust..we dont know why he can’t accept Elena to be something different now that she is a vampire and help her through it instead of trying to fix her. Why would u think they are the perfect pair? Try being with someone who wants to change you then see if you two work out. You wont. Damon is perfect for her at this moment because he has learned to contol himself…he doesnt kill people..he doesnt manipulate anyone…he tried to help Elena understand Stefans motives..he’s on stefans side when he is right..and he has tried to help Elena not knowing her feelings for him…he could have just left. He is loyal at this moment…MAYBE not 3 seasons ago but he has learned to live the right way. Stefan is messing up now…Damon is the better choice for her. She will learn a lot from him instead of hating herself she will start to work on herself. If she stayed with Stefan she would just hate herself. The sired thing may turn out to be the best thing that could have happened to her. It was a push…but not the act. It helps her understand herself and Damon.

Elena and Stefan are meant for each other. The sire bond to Damon thing….Is rediculous. But to be honest, i ship STELENA. They are meant for each other.
