Damon and Elena have some chemistry. I keep watching that scene last night over and over. The one on Youtube with Barbie and Stef cut out. It was so HOT.

@sarah. Last time I looked the TVD books and series were based on a love TRIANGLE. It has nothing to do with “Ian and Nina are the bosses” and what they want. Jesus. I know three seasons wasn’t enough for SE fans, they want the whole six years of a straight line between Stefan and Elena. Too bad.

I’ve been shipping DE first season episode 11 their roadtrip, so for me, my love for DE has nothing to do with real life events.

If done right this sire bond could be great. Real angst.

I honestly think the reason the whole “sired” thing between them came about is because the writers needed them to have an obstacle. I honeslty don’t think it will drive the relationship down… When Stefan and Elena got together their obstacle was Stefan being a vampire so they never really had it great either. They had to fight to be with eachother and that is what the writers are doing for Damon and Elena just in another way. I think it will be interesting because they will find out that Elena is sired to him then Damon will back off because it’s just to hard for him to not know how she truely feels which gives Elena wonderful moments to try to convince him and us delena fans that she really truely loves him. It’s AWESOME!!!! It’ll work for the best! And honestly as much as I love Elena she made me mad last season..A LOT. and I think she owes it to Damon and us. They are not over..it’s just the beginning. I don’t really know if she will be sired to him or if they will ever find out but it is hard for me to believe because it happened so naturally for them. The writers made it seem like Damon was right..anyone could see and Elena is just accepting that she understands his ways. And episode 6 was just a kick off of understanding her feelings. The sired thing is kindof confusing me just because she hasnt really agreed all the way around with Damon…she is just learning to trust his judgment. Which is the start of an awesome relationship. DUH!!

You’re clearly not understanding the sire bond:

Julie Plec’s Q&A on Twitter

by Stella Posted on December 16, 2012

Here is an excerpt of the Q&A session Julie Plec had on Twitter yesterday:

Basically the sire bond is kind of the reason why Elena became a person she didnt ‘want to be’ right?
JP: Yes, more or less. It affected her actions, which then created many additional actions.

Could the sire bond be the reason why Elena’s feelings for Stefan lessened in such a short time?
JP: Could be, yes.

I thought 4×06 explained why Elena broke up with Stefan. I thought we saw that after her experience with the hallucinations she finally found the strength to face up who she is now and what she wants. Are you saying this realization could be just an affect from the sire bond and nothing else?
JP: I think it’s a question everyone should be asking, including Damon and Elena.

The only thing that concerns all the fans ATM some loopholes in the sire bond which I’m sure will be explained later.
JP: There aren’t really loopholes in that the sire bond, unlike compulsion, doesn’t have tangible rules. It’s emotion-based.

What do you mean by “emotion based” Elena’s feelings aren’t real? am i misinterpreting?
JP: Her ‘obeying’ his requests. Compulsion is specific. You’re told to do, you do. Sire bond u have illusion of free will.

The sirebond affects #Elena’s acts, not her feelings … right ? Her feelings for #Damon are real !
JP: That’s what she believes

So this confirms that the sire bond does affect Elena’s feelings, which means Elena’s love for Damon atm isn’t real…
JP: No, I’m saying the questions don’t and won’t have answers. It’s an exploration, a journey.

But there gotta be a way to break it? We also thought there was no way to kill Klaus and woops we got 41313 different ways.
JP: Possibly. It’s called plot.

So do I get it right that the only way the sire bond can really be broken is for Elena turning back to human?
JP: That’s the most logical solution.

You keep saying everything’s a journey, did Stefan and Elena’s journey stopped, or did it took a vacation?
JP: It hit a big roadblock.

Is stefan mad because he thinks damon had sex with elena AFTER they knew how to break the sire bond??? or sex in gerenal?
JP: He’s devastated that they had sex at all, as he has every right to be. He’s mad because Damon lied to him.

Can you confirm the spoiler that the next episode we’re getting our hearts ripped out by Stefan Salvatore?
JP: Yep.

I know Caroline has every right to hate Damon, but can you please stop ruining her caracter by making her a Stelena hardcore shipper?
JP: How is someone who speaks the truth and defends someone who they believe is being wronged character-ruining?

Elena has been falling in love with Damon for a long time. Those who don’t see it haven’t been paying attention at all or are only seeing what they want to. Damon and Elena are IT, it’s that simple. Damon loves Elena vampire or human, Elena and Damon have overcome so many obstacles to get here. Stefan thinks Elena needs to be “fixed”..his words, even if it means destroying Jeremy, just so he can have her back. It’s about him, not Elena. He hates himself so much that he needs to believe Damon’s bad and Elena couldn’t love him, he needs to be chosen and validated through others to make himself feel better. What Damon and Elena have is real and the bond is just angst, that’s it, that they will come out of stronger. And for those haters there are, Damon did not know about the sire bond previous to them getting together, that’s already been confirmed, not that it should need to be if you watch the show and actually pay attention at all to Damon’s character.

The problem with the show is that it revolves around Ian and Nina not The Vampire Diaries. Everybody just wants Damon and Elena together because Ian and Nina are dating in real life. Nobody sees them as Damon and Elena they see them as Ian and Nina and that is the problem with you Delena shippers you can’t get past Ian’s sparkling blue eyes and Nina’s silky brown hair. Ya’ll can’t see what the show is really about.
P.S- After the show ends, Ian and Nina’s relationship is down the toilet (only for publicity).

How can she be sired? When Damon told her to drink that blond girls blood, she refused! When she and Damon were dancing at that party,she left and I doubt that she would do that if she was sired to Damon! I hate how they got us all excited about Delena and then were all,”Ahhhh, nope.Nevermind.It was just a sire bond.Haha!!Got you exited didnt we?. They’re perfect! Julie Plec needs to stop being such a Stelena worshiper!

Haaaa! Damon can be the noble, unselfish and altruist brother. But when comes to Stefan….what a big time disappointment. All this “syred” thing is a HUGE controversy. Damon is the one who creates Caroline. And she absolutely HATES him. Where’s the syre bond here???? I know I’m not prepared, at all, for this two being apart. That’s ridiculous. And it will not make sense, because we’ve seen Elena’s feelings growing tremendously in these past seasons. And as you said, Bonnie, in one day they had more chemistry together than the cold scenes with Stefan. No comparison! WHY IN THE EARTH will someone or something tear them apart???? Stefan HAS TO, I mean, MUST TO accept this. Damon loves Elena either ways. I don’t want them apart…now or never. Stefan can end up with someone else and anyone else. But Damon and Elena belong to each other. So…If Julie decides to tear them apart….she will throw away the work of writing of three and a half seasons. And to fix that….Humm, I don’t think she will have this lucky neither the support of millions of admirers of Damon and Elena TOGETHER, forever. But if she prefers the tasteless Stelena thing, it’s up to her it’s up to her and indeed she can, as a screenwriter. But it will be a total and complete NONSENSE.

Um… Damon said being Sired with a Vampire is rare. So that answers the Caroline portion. NOT EVERY VAMPIRE IS SIRED TO THEIR MAKER. Elena is though.

To those who keep saying that elena’s feelings for damon “are JUST because of her sire bond” are clearly not watching the same show cause if they had they would have realized that Damon and Elena’s relationship has been in progress ever since season 1 so she DOES LOVE HIM, JP even said that the sire bond is just a small obstacle in their way !!!! So just stop with the hate and accept the fact that DE is happening!!!!! BTW they do have an undeniable chemistry.

Stelena is my OTP although no one can deny that even before Elena became a vampire she had feelings for Damon. But now as a vampire her feelings for him have become intensified because she is sired to Damon otherwise her feelings for Stefan would still be stronger because before she became a vampire she chose Stefan over Damon meaning as a vampire with heightened senses her feelings for Stefan would be stronger than they are for Damon. Her feelings for Damon are only more heightened because she is sired to him but we cannot deny that she hasn’t had feelings for both of them since season 1 but her feelings for Stefan have always been and will always be stronger.

Ok. if slabs is sired to Damon then why couldn’t she too. his blood? He told her to do it and said it would help. it’s “from the vein” but yet she couldn’t tolerate it. Damon met her first. he is no worse than Stefan and his ripper days. he has always loved her, fought for her, would have never let her drown like Stefan did. Stefan is a complete bore. Damon puts her at ease and challenges her. Stefan can’t love her as a vampire but Damon loves her regardless. I won’t let the writers ruin their finally getting together with this sire bull crap!!!

You apparently have no idea what happened last episode. She is sired to him and that is why she was acting that way and saying that Damon and Elena had more chemistry in one episode than Stefan and Elena had in the entire three seasons is absolutely WRONG!!! Again, she was sired so the “chemistry” wasn’t even real. I suggest you go check your notes, honey!!!

If she was sired to him, why didn’t she jump on him on 4×01 after drinking his blood? You can’t deny Elena felt things for Damon since she was human. You can be Stelena, but with this you are demonstrating you are as in denial as Stefan is. You cannot deny this chemistry that is right in front of your eyes!
Let’s give a rest to this stupid Stelena vs. Delena battle and just enjoy the show!

Siring doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with romantic feelings…Julie Plec has already made this clear. She said it has no effect on how Elena romantically feels towards Damon. Elena slept with Damon because she WANTED to, not because she was sired…& they’ve ALWAYS had chemistry, way more than Stelena has ever had, in my opinion…

Wow, are all SE fans this nasty to the author of the article if it has to do with DE?

You apparently have no idea what has happened for the WHOLE series so far, I mean have you watched it at all?? They’ve had chemistry since season one when she first met him (even though it really wasn’t.) The chemistry has been real for the past four seasons, not just since she has become a vamp!! Bonnie is correct in saying there was more chemistry in one night for DE than three seasons of SE. The only ppl who would refute are stefan fans that thinks their so called “epic” love goes with letting your love die when you have superstrength and easily could have saved both of them. I suggest you go watch from the beginning sweetie.

YOU ARE SOOO WRONG. Have you watch any episodes besides the last 2! Damon and elena have had chemistry since day 1 when they first met!!! and i don’t mean the day he compelled her to forget, im talking about when she showed up at their house and damon was there. If you are that blind and stupid to think anything different i feel for you. Damon and elena are supposed to be together, its obvious. and if there is anything about a sire bond it has nothing to do with her feelings, she was in love with him before she turned. maybe you should go back and check Your notes!!!

I am gutted!! How dare they ruin a moment that was supposed to be epic like that!! I am just horrified at the produces and Julie for ruining something so beautiful by letting the hypocritical wench that is Caroline and the boy that practically created denial land overshadow what was meant to be the beginning of the delena relationship!! If this doesn’t have some sort of upside in the end I will chuck rage! One day the writers will push us too far! I don’t know how much more I can take to be honest.

I really don’t know how much more I can take of watching Damon being squashed and Stefan being the prize. It’s almost too heartbreaking at this point already. If they do more damage I’m not sure I’ll be able to watch because it will just be too sad for me. One guy can not have that much bad karma. Sometimes I wonder if they enjoy giving hope just to destroy it. Don’t we have enough of that in real life?

I’m fine with her fighting for him but I don’t trust anything JP says because she’s messed with us before. Is this a “tiny obstacle?” Remember she sees things differently than we do. She contradicts herself too much.

@Nini: I was wondering if I’m the only one who saw Mrs. Plec contradicting herself over the years.

Even now in this interview while not a straight out contradiction she says that Damon & Elena have this “tiny obstacle” in front of them (suggesting they will overcome it), but then she turns around and says that Stefan could actually be right, that Elena is not supposed to be this person (I believe she means this sired vamp).

But then we see Stefan telling Damon in the preview of 4×08 that Elena is not supposed to be this person and to choose Damon, because he is completely wrong for her. Is Stefan right then?!

Sooooo… Is this a tiny obstacle on her way to be with Damon or is that relationship completely wrong and it will never happen? Ah, well.. it depends what day she’s giving the interview.

Note: I am sorry if I was not quoting exactly the words of Ms. Plec. But feel free to read her interview for yourself. You’ll be able to draw your own conclusions.

First, Why did the writers have to screw up delenas first time with S/C commentary. We DE fans can never get special moment back! I’m so mad!! Second, Even if she was sired to him, doesn’t necessarily make the love fake. I haven’t heard or seen it being said that a “sire bond” causes romantic feelings/ sexual tension. I don’t think she is sired to him, just because since the season started, she hasn’t done all he has told her to do AND she admitted to matt before she became a vampire that she had feelings for damon. As far as we know, this is just a theory from S/C, they don’t know for sure.

When you love someone you love them no matter what. Damon has that kind of love for Elena. Stefan only loves only warm human Elena. That is not true love. My friends and I think Julie should give Damon his time with Elena and Stefan should stop trying to change Elena and find someone else to impose his boring self on. The show is probaby only going to be on the air for a couple or three years because the vamps can’t age. Give Damon his chance now.

Stefan loves Elena so much that he is willing to do anything for her. He loves her vampire or human it doesn’t matter to him. He’s only trying to get the cure for Elena because he knows that she wouldn’t be able to live with herself if she hurt someone she loved or killed an Innocent person. Everything he’s doing is for her. Damon does love Elena but the difference between him and Stefan is that Stefan would do anything for Elena’s happiness and right now he knows that she wants her humanity back he loves her and he’s willing to do anything to be with her Damon on the other hand does love her but not the way Stefan does.

What show have you been watching? Do u have a relationship? Are u married? You can admit when Stefan is being selfish even being a Stefan fan…and this would be one of the seasons where he is only thinking of HIMself. Seeing as how HE cant live with HIMself if HE hurts someone(saying that Elena will feel the same way)HE cant control the blood lust (so HE thinks Elena cant either)….HE doesnt want her to be this way…HE is searching for the cure without Damon. HE is not trying to understand Elena and Damon together…HE is just being a dick…and it’s the best his character has ever been. HE is meant to be the bad one. Damon isnt. Damon should get the girl.

and p.p.s because Delena fans keep getting it wrong, Stefan didn’t say he didn’t love Elena as a vampire. What he said was, I’ll always love her no matter what, but she is not supposed to be this person. The person Elena herself said she didn’t want to me and told Stefan that at the end of season 2 as well as at the end of episode 4 in Season 4. So stop hating on Stefan. He even told Damon in episode 8 that if she chooses Damon, he is fine with that so long as it’s trule “her choice” and not influenced by the sire bond.
