If Elena and Stephan had epic love story, Damon and Elena's love story to me, is like Christmas.
There are still some who thinks that the series is a carbon-copy of the phenomenal, top-grossing film-based Twilight. I thought this too in the beginning and middle seasons. Trust me, I was not a fan until season 4 started. I couldn't stand a minute or two watching all the stabbing, head-ripping gory scenes or listen to Klaus' thick accent. Plus, I couldn't find the reason on why Paul Wesley got the "Edward" role because I think Edward is a good-looking, affectionate vampire. Ooops, that's just my opinion, and this is my blog so allow me.
To date, the vampire diaries is the most watched tv series in America. I would guess this after the 5 movies of Twilight ended filming. But not only that, because the latest season was really something to watch out for. Since the fiery romance between Elena and Damon is about to happen. Yes it is "finally" about to happen. So, ratings would surely go up.
And just when their romance comes to play. Like an electric shock, spanked my almost undecided heart if I'll go buy it or not. I did buy it. In fact I got excited. No, I was very excited. Yes, finally it is happening. Finally Elena is "in love" with Damon. How long has he waited for Elena to fall in love with him? That someone he truly loves can actually fall in love with him too. For three long seasons, it was all about Stephan. No matter where she looks, all she sees is Stephan. Always Stephan, and never Damon.
It was epic. Yes, it is. For three years, it was. Then Elena turned into a vampire, got sired, and is now "in love" with Damon. What a big transition isn't it? I cannot deny the fact that I felt sorry for Stephan when she heard it directly from Elena's mouth "I slept with Damon because I'm in love with him". I almost shed a tear, but probably my mind was scrambling, fighting against excitement and sympathy. Excitement and that knee-weakening feeling overruled me. And I can only watch Stephan get hurt.
I don't really know how long will the sire bond lasts. Until when will Elena be in love with Damon. Or if there really was a sire bond. Nonetheless, I hope for two things. One, I hope she is not sired. Second, I hope that she is against all odds in love with Damon and it is not because of the sire bond.
I haven't read the books, and have no plans to. I kinda like the feeling of not being witheld from excitement and not knowing what's next. Episode 12 is coming up, do me a favor, don't spill the beans, please.
