HOW DOES THIS MAKE ME LAUGH EVERY FUCKING YEAR!?
Fkdkskgoskhlskosofksbshajakak holy shit
|WAS THE SCENE WITH ELENA AND STEFAN SAYING THEY WOULD ALWAYS LOVE EACH OTHER REAL OR VISION. I NEED TO KNOW BECAUSE REASONS. IT'S NOT LIKE I SHIP THEM ANYMORE (FUCK IT I WILL ALWAYS SHIP THEM GODDAMN IT).|
IT WAS REAL!!! BUT IT FELT LIKE CLOSURE =(
That is fucking awful. I’m so glad I don’t watch it anymore. =(
|The difference is, DE'rs weren't raving about how awesome and romantic and beautiful the sire bond was. SE'rs are just so desperate for any kind of fan-service bone, they can't see the grossness of these dreams. Uncomfortable? lol. That's going to be an understatement, I'm sure.|
They actually were. They still are. I had an argument with a DE fan not so long ago in which they completely dismissed the idea that Elena’s will was compromised by the sire bond, that Elena had always loved him so it didn’t matter. Not to mention all the gifsets I’ve seen of instances where Damon is physically or sexually abusing Elena and talking about how beautiful it is that Damon loves her so much.
I’m not saying that there aren’t SE fans who ARE saying how awesome and romantic and beautiful those dreams are. (I would argue that that FUTURE is beautiful, but not that they’re being forced to see it.)
Generally, I’m not here at all for the way the writers perceive romance and consent. Paul actually had to talk them out of filming a sex scene vision. Thank god for that.
But look, you can’t condemn SE for issues of consent and turn around and call DE an EPIC LOVE (especially when Damon is actually the perpetrator 90% of the time) and romantic and all this hypocritical bullshit.
Like if you really care about consent, you can’t ship DE at all. I am 100% behind DE fans who quit the show during s4 and live in the preferable world of fanfiction where DE isn’t actually an abusive shitstorm.
Call the show like it is. Don’t gloss over the pairing that you happen to like.
