Elena letting Damon go
Elena letting Stefan go
I really loved that Stefan heard Damon and Elena’s conversation after the sire bond is broken(not because I want the guy to suffer but) because he hears Damon laying it out to Elena that he’s selfish and he’s wrong for her in every way and not being apologetic about it and Elena acknowledging all that and also acknowledging that he made her feel most alive and that knowing him has made her question everything and saying she’s not sorry she’s in love with him even though it might be the worst decision in her life because it comes back to Stefan saying in 4x08 to Damon “No[it’s not impossible she has feelings for you], it’s impossible that she could so blind that she can’t see how wrong you are for her”. Elena isn’t blind. She knows his faults better than anyone and even has a better understanding of them than anyone. For a long time, she was scared of how it wasn’t “right” and here she’s saying if she choosing to love him is the worst decision that makes her feel alive and makes her feel free, then she doesn’t care about what’s “right” or “wrong” in everyone’s eyes. She’s not sorry that she’s in love with Damon and that’s exactly what Stefan needed to hear that Elena doesn’t forget who Damon is or what he’s done she loves him anyway because he believed that Damon tried to persuade Elena into believing he’s someone else but that’s not the case as he sees. He doesn’t understand it completely because he’s never really understood unconditional love but he accepts that Elena knows what’s she’s doing.
I absolutely adored Elena’s love confession to Damon. Every single part of it. And I’m honestly surprised that very few people have commented on the line “you’ve been a terrible person.” Can I just say that I LOVED THAT LINE?! It really emphasized why I love Damon/Elena so much. Elena doesn’t ignore Damon’s faults. And she doesn’t blindly agree with what he does, ESPECIALLY if he’s wrong. Damon is a bad person. Why? Because he’s a vampire. And the fact that Elena acknowledged that while saying she loves him is really profound because Elena doesn’t love Damon just because his “darkness” intrigues her. Elena doesn’t love Damon because he can be “good.” Elena loves Damon because he’s Damon.
By giving Jeremy his life back, Bonnie essentially gave Elena her life back, too. Unencumbered by the sire bond, her grief, or a gaping hole where her humanity should be, Elena finally got to evaluate her love life with a clear head — and she chose to be with Damon. “In death, you’re the one that made me feel most alive,” Elena told him. Cue the mouth touching! Now, with her vampire boyfriend at her side, she might just be able to enjoy college.
It’s been a rough few years for Damon when it comes to his love life — but Julie tells us it’s finally time for him to have some legitimate joy in his life. “Yes. Absolutely,” she says. “We’re going to get to see Damon trying to be a good boyfriend, and while it’s not going to be easy, he’s going to try like hell to make it work, and they’re going to have a real opportunity for happiness.” — Julie Plec [x] (via elenasfire)
