I’m pretty curious to know what things are like in your fandom, too. Is there a line with tape down the middle and no one can dare to cross it for fear of flames? It reminds me of the Saiyuki fandom in that people are more prone to passive-aggressive shots at either Stefan or Damon’s in this triangle’s case character than actually stating why the characters wouldn’t work as a couple. The second series was so weird and sweet. Now that is a fandom full of batshit insane shipping nonsense. Previous Entry Next Entry. Rewatching the series, I had a hard time rooting for Damon until season 2, simply because Stefan truly did have Elena’s best interests in mind, while Damon was being purely selfish.

So yeah, fluffy bunnies have their places, but give me a headlong run of angst and I’m one happy camper. It’s been a while since something sparked my interest this much. It’s like ipuone forget these stories and shows are supposed to be for funnot to have aneurisms over.

I love our old fandom, BTW. Nothing I have seen has ever matched that. He’s also not tormenting her by making her relive her parents’ death, which is a major issue Setlena take with Stefan, currently.
There was none of this “soulmate” or “pre-destined” stuff I’ve grown weary of, it simply is. Have fun with that; I’m going over here to enjoy my pairing.

I think, in this Twilight era, this may be a reason so many people express anger at Elena’s character. Ipgone right now, in season 3, Damon’s winning simply because he’s been forthright with her and, while protecting her, isn’t utterly babying her. A slight miscalculation on his part. The slightest mention of Zutara or Kataang will get you all manner of sniping.

So it’s more of an “I’m going to Mary-Sue myself into Elena and so she should end up with whichever guy I find sexier so I can live out my fantasies vicariously through her” thing, huh?
Previous Entry Next Entry. Of course they’ve done things we’d otherwise consider monstrous. I agree that early Stelena was very sweet, especially in contrast to Damon’s cruelty at the time. As far as the line I squeed sooo loudly when Damon kissed Elena, my husband came out of the computer room to see what was wrong.
It was a small, but very friendly fandom. Not that the milder relationships are bad, just that Actually, I think part of the Internet imploded when those Harry Potter ships became canon. Same with Harry Potter.
KEEP CALM AND LOVE STELENA.
TVD is the first fandom I’ve been semi-active in since Being the cold asshole vamp has its place, just not in a relationship. Each character is vibrant and unique; none can be easy to slip into the shoes of.
When I was into Megami Kouhosei, there was some contention but never anything angry. It reminds me of the Saiyuki fandom in that people are more prone to passive-aggressive shots at either Stefan or Damon’s in this triangle’s case character than actually stating why the characters wouldn’t work as a couple.
I’m 40, and married when I was 17, so can’t really compare my trials to Elena’s, but I do see that she has grown up as a character. It’s a huge reason I love the show; sgelena I think of the characters as I’d think of real people, with qualities I love and admire, as well as qualities I immensely dislike.
Because he can’t deal with Klaus and do the things that need to be done when he lets his emotions have free rein. I’ve seen a lot of fandoms with truly EPIC shipping wars. Now that is a fandom full of batshit insane shipping nonsense.
And don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my gripes about Stefan, but I also sgelena gripes with Elena and Damon and every other character. I should take it out and re-watch an episode or two sometime ATLA fandom is also pretty bad for being on a hairline trigger with anything shipping related.
