Love Always Wakes the Dragon (Damon/Elena meta)

Dec 12, 2011 22:45

I'm terribly late with fics for the meme, but I have this awkward feeling that if I was late with the meta, my head would roll (I'm looking at you, Frances), so here I am. The post is freakishly long, which may or may not imply that I have no life. I regret nothing. The banner was made for me by juana-a for another Damon/Elena meta, and I'm shamelessly ( Read more... )

Oh, I think they will have sex, just not yet. I'd say the earliest it can happen is around the season finale, and even that could be too early. It's hard to speculate about the end of the season, because I'm not sure how far will the writers be willing to take Elena, how much will they shatter her narrative, how Katherine-like are they going to shape her. That's the beauty of this show - I can't really predict things \o/. I'm just hoping that after dark!Stefan we'll get dark!Elena ;).

HAHAHA I FEEL DEMANDING. BUT ALSO PROUD. You must always feed me. With meta.

A Big Damn Damon/Elena Meta

EXCITED

It's just that, at this point, Damon is predictable for Elena (or at least this is how she feels about him; there are things that the viewer knows and Elena doesn't, and they shed a different light on the matters between Damon and Elena). She knows when he might go behind her back. She knows when he may snap. She knows she has some emotional power over him. Elena's trust isn't based on Damon's good intentions, it's based on her knowledge of what he might actually do.

Haha this is starting to make complete sense to me. I actually came to a conclusion about this the other night? It's like... as reckless and out of control as Damon can be, he's the one thing that Elena feels like she can count on in her life when even Stefan (who was ( ... )

IT'S OK TO BE DEMANDING!

HE WILL ALWAYS LOVE HER AND BE THERE AND STAN FOR HER and right now, that's the most predictable thing in Elena's life.

I'm glad we agree \o/. Another thing that is forgotten very often is that Elena doesn't have a full picture of Damon. She doesn't know about half of the evil things he is doing! Like, when fandom was all angry that Elena doesn't react when Damon abuses Andie. Just... HOW COULD SHE REACT? She didn't know! How on Earth could she have told the difference between Damon's healthy relationship with Rose and abusive relationship with Andie? It all looked the same from the outside! Stefan knew very well that something was wrong, Alaric probably knew, Caroline might've guessed, but Elena? She was clueless! So Elena's trust for Damon isn't just based on the fact that he is predictable for her. It's also based on the fact that she doesn't know about most of the disturbing stuff. When Damon went out and killed that girl in 2x12, he didn't exactly CONFESS it to Elena afterwards...

Go listen to your ( ... )

This? Is wondrous. I actually said out loud "YES, THANK YOU!" at the moment you wrote that Damon is still not over Katherine. Because INDEED HE IS NOT. He spend 150 years searching for a way to get her out of that tomb. There is no way those feelings will be going away overnight. How can he NOT associate Elena with the woman who she looks identical to? She's like the better parts of Katherine and I think he hopes that there might be some sort of redemption for him if only he can be better this time around. Terribly misguided, but that is basically Damon in a nutshell. Full of good intentions, crap at carrying them through.

I am now running off to read the other stuff you have rec'd.
AWESOME POST IS AWESOME.

Thank you :D. It's amazing how often Damon tells Katherine he is over her. Convincing yourself much?

THIS!

Have a good time reading all the posts! :D
