Woe @ your fleeting existence. And at your computer woes. Woe all round.

SAME ABOUT REBEKAH IN THE PREVIOUSLIES. Honestly this whole cure business seems poorly fleshed out on the part of anyone who isn't Damon or Stefan. Ehhhhhhh.

And I didn't think it was possible to loathe Stelena more than I already did but after watching the trainwreck that was the show catering to Stefan's man pain all episode at the expense of Elena's emotional power I JUST S M H. God fucking dammit we are into the FOURTH SEASON of this show and virtually zilch has changed with the power dynamic of this relationship -- Stefan is still being an emotionally abusive and manipulative piece of horseshit wrt Elena; the show is still failing to address it; and Elena suffers most of all. Literally the worst ship on television, Liz. Sorry, not sorry.

This is a cry for help. 
There is no help for you.

This is the sort of answer that the show could use to appease shippers. It's a way for S/E shippers to say, "yeah, Elena feels this way now, BUT...IF..."lol but Elena' ( ... )

Woe to my fandom fail indeed. Replying to these with about an hour to go before the ep airs for the East Coast. Win!

Honestly this whole cure business seems poorly fleshed out on the part of anyone who isn't Damon or Stefan.

Jfc, such truth. Why is this cure even a thing, tho. But seriously, how come no one else has discussed it at all? Like, is Caroline taking the cure? Does it work on hybrids? HOW COME THIS PLOT DEVICE IS NOT EVEN BEING USED AS A PLOT ANYTHING EXCEPT AS A WAY TO MAKE STEFAN EVEN WORSE.

Literally the worst ship on television, Liz. Sorry, not sorry.

PREACH. It is actually laughable at this point.

lol but Elena's feelings and positive actions wrt Damon are 100% sire bond influenced you silly girl you don't even know what real love is and also you just want Ian S. to fuck you.Omg, your rite, how did i not kno this b4. u know me so well. my shipping feelings are totally becuz ian is so hotttt like omigod. thank u for clering that up 4 me ( ... )

Agreed on pretty much everything and your comment on why Damon/Elena relationship is the most interesting to watch is spot on.

Also, Stefan is the worst but I love to love/hate him.

Thank you! I'm glad my OTP rantings worked for you. The show really does do a beautiful job with them.

Stefan is certainly the worst, but he can be an endearing worst. Depending on the moment.

LOL I NOTICED YOU WERE GONE. Mostly b/c Alex is always complaining how no one's around to chat anymore and it makes me feel unloved b/c HELLO I am around, but w/e. Your absence HAS BEEN NOTED.

You know what I did NOT love? The new previously's in which her motivation was explained as "to be human and *in love.*" Ugh. I don't know why it tweaked me.

Ugh, yes. Maybe it tweaked you because IT MAKES NO SENSE? Like, okay, I get that that was her original motivation however many centuries ago when she was in love w/ the vampire hunter dude. But now? Who does she want to be human for? Matt effing Donovan??? (Excuse me while I cackle hysterically.)

Rebekah said that Stefan would take the cure *for* Elena, like it was a sacrifice, and Elena looked at him like that was some grand romantic gesture

LOL! I interpreted Elena's reaction as more of an awkward "WTF WE HAVE NOT TALKED ABOUT THIS DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE TO MARRY YOU?" thing, not so much "ooooh he wants to be ~human for me *swoon*" Personally, I think Elena wants to become human to ( ... )

BLESS YOU, E. Your memory of my existence is probably what's keeping me existing in the first place. As long as one human remembers me, I shall live on.

and it makes me feel unloved b/c HELLO I am around

YOU ARE LOVED. I LOVE YOU. VERY LOVED.

Who does she want to be human for? Matt effing Donovan???

LOLLLLLLLLLLL. But word. That's the thing - this description seemed so diminishing and condescending. Like Rebekah is just this silly girl who only wants to be loved and doesn't see a reason for living beyond that. Like, come on. Lady is badass and wonderful and strong as fuck. Don't try and make her into a damsel waiting for her prince to come rescue her.

Oh lord. Imagining Matt trying to ride a white steed now. He looks so happy.

I interpreted Elena's reaction as more of an awkward "WTF WE HAVE NOT TALKED ABOUT THIS DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE TO MARRY YOU?" thing

LOL. I like your interpretation better. And you're probably right. I'm the first to admit that I'm oversensitive to S/E at this point.

Personally, I think Elena wants ( ... )

I love how this starts out like it's going to be short, but then it's not, even a little bit, and are we supposed to be surprised? LOL.

All I have to say is basic incoherence, like: D/E OTP FOREVER and IAN'S FACE WHY GOD WHY and STEFAN IS THE TOOLIST TOOL THAT EVER TOOLED, THE END.

Love it, love it, love it. Miss you, miss you, miss you!

Yeah, I think the ultimate doomed ship is Me/Conciseness. Alas.

Your incoherence is my incoherence. HOW DO WE EVEN COPE, CANDY? This show will be the end of me.

I miss you too!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ You bring me life, my dear.

*edited because I fail at those hearts things. ♥ NAILED IT.

Welcome back! Happy New Year!

I will never not love the way she phrased it. Feeling like "a project" and "a broken toy that needed to be fixed."

This was good, yes.

I kept thinking, "ugh, can we PLEASE be rid of all this Klaroline nonsense so we can get back t this?"

Very much agreed with this too.

Elena knowing exactly what she wants was fantastic, and everything was wonderful.

But she doesn't. This is where I can't get on board with it. The sire bond means that she literally isn't in control of her own actions when it comes to Damon.

Thank you! Happy New Year to you as well! OH, and speaking of which, I wasn't able to reply to your post for iPad fail reasons, but I saw that you were watching the fireworks in London (until you got ill, which, oh noes! I hope you're ok now), and so was I!!! We must have been (relatively) close to each other! Huzzah fandom almost!run-ins!

This is where I can't get on board with it. The sire bond means that she literally isn't in control of her own actions when it comes to Damon.

I get you, I really do. And I don't disagree. But during the hiatus, I just decided to give up and not think about it, because honestly, I just can't believe that the sire bond is a real thing. It just makes no sense. And I know the show is playing it straight, but I simply cannot buy it, and I will keep holding on to the idea that it's a fakeout until it just can't be done anymore. That's the only way I don't feel ill while watching the show at this point. But your POV is very fair. Let's hope this whole business gets cleared up as soon as possible.

I'm fine, yes! And ooh, we might possibly have walked within streets of each other without knowing! :D

You're not the only person on my f-list doing that, so yeah, I can see why you'd want to. Unfortunately I can't deny the reality of the sire bond until I'm shown that it's fake (idk, my brain) so I'm pretty much stuck hating it.
