I am most certainly a Dalena fan, and here are my 5 reasons for why I hope Damon gets with Elena at some point during the Vampire Diaries - preferably sooner, not sure how much longer I'm going to stick to the show.
*And yes, this is a spoiler-free discussion :).
Okay, so not going to lie, but Damon can be horrible sometimes (aka when he goes off on killing sprees for no reason and uses women). At the heart of the story, however, he's not a womanizer or a complete, complete jerk. (He is a jerk on occasion, but it's really obvious that he's just lashing out, almost like throwing a tantrum. Plus, if you were going to turn to someone to save you, who would you turn to? The powerful jerk who lives life to the fullest, or the broody guy who watches from the sidelines? You'd turn to the guy who has qualms but who will put them aside for you while he deals with things in an efficient manner, aka Damon.) Damon is unapologetic about who he is--at least on the surface.
2. STEFAN IS NOT AS LAYERED AS DAMON
I kind of touched on this above. I don't know about you guys, but I found it fascinating to find out more about Stefan -- his past, what he'd done to become so broody and sad. Then the writers stopped, and Stefan was "back" to himself. AKA Me disappointed. I'm sorry, Stefan, but is there anything more to you than being the super duper committed brooding nice guy? Damon, on the other hand, I feel like I'm constantly learning about. He's the surprise factor. You think you know how he's going to act, and then he does something different. And his past? There's still so much hidden.
Okay, I understand the origins of Stelena, and how that might make it impossible for Dalena, but I think what bothers me most about the series is that they never really gave Dalena a chance, and Elena never really admitted her feelings for him.. I know that's kind of contradictory coming from me, because I don't usually like love triangles. But it's a fundamental in The Vampire Diaries, so I accept it... And a lot of the times, I root for the underdog - Jem and Will? Jem. Edward and Jacob? Jacob. Peeta and Gale? Gale. (Also Damon at the beginning of the show - obviously not the best kind of guy, but Elena admitted that it didn't matter, yes? So again: no chance.) At least throw the guy a bone! Let Elena kiss him and enjoy it and not think of Stefan. If you're going to do a love triangle, actually MAKE it a triangle.
Which type of broody man is hotter?
Hi, broody man whose lips naturally form a down-turn.
I welcome any and all comments :).
