Starling Skies

They (Stefan and Elena) have an emotional connection that is unparalleled by anyone else, which is why in 4x21 when Elena is going through an emotional storm when she turns her humanity back on, Stefan is the one who reaches her, which is also why in 5x02 when Elena is mad with fury, Damon tells her to think about Stefan as a way to calm her down, Stefan centres her and always has. Elena may be with Damon now but she can’t speak to him the way she can speak to Stefan because the safety she feels with Damon is about her actual physical safety, her emotional and mental and psychological well being is all with Stefan, which is why she only ever truly fights for Damon after Stefan tells her not to give up on him, she could talk to Stefan about her relationship with Damon more than she could talk to Damon about it. People keep talking about the buildup Damon and Elena had but all their relationship is is buildup, what do they do now that they’re a couple? They have these speeches to each other about how much they love one another and seeing a future together and how they’re each other’s lives but…what have they done to actually show this? When do they just share a meal together, go out together, laugh and play together, without it leading to sex? Yes, many terrible supernatural things are happening in MF but that was true when Stelena were together and they still managed to do those things.

Why I Love Stelena

jbuffyangel:

Anon asked: I really love your Olicity metas,they are always so profound and amazingly written,you make me fall in love with Olicity even more if that’s possible! Now, I’m a huge Delena fan (don’t worry, I come in peace;) ), but I totally agree that the show hasn’t been at its best in s5, to say the least… However, my questions go back to the roots of Stelena, because I’m truly curious: doesn’t bother you that they didn’t get a longer build-up? And what made you ship Stelena (aside from disliking Delena)?

Oh!! That makes me soooo happy. Nothing pleases me more than when my posts help you enjoy Arrow more or love Olicity more.  YIPPEE!!

And I LOVE hearing from Delena fans. No seriously. There is absolutely no reason why we can’t converse in peace. At the end of the day - we are all Vampire Diaries fans right? Yes, we totally agree- the show has slacked off in the later years. It frustrates me because this is Delena’s “time” and you guys deserve better than the shitty writing you are getting.

That’s a really interesting question about Stelena. You are right. They didn’t have much build up. It was 1x10 that they slept together and they were pretty much together until the end of S2…with of course that tortuous break up in 2x06.  You know, it didn’t really bother me. I get why fans love the slow build. I am LOVING it with Olicity.  However, I think there are couples where a slow build is necessary and there are couples where a slow build is not. Whatever serves the story better is what matters. To me, Stelena was one of those couples where a slow build wasn’t necessary.

Wow. Just, wow.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
