  1. Damon, Klaus, Caroline, Rebekah, Gloria, Silas, Tessa, Lexi, Enzo, etc & etc all have the same things to say about Stefan & Elena theirs is an epic love, a pure love, a love that will last forever. Stefan’s love for Elena is stronger than even his bloodlust is. Please writers these are your own words from seasons 1 thru 5 let season 6 be the one when Elena remembers her love for Stefan. And bring the two back together, marry and be the strength the others draw from. Please let them be the constant we as viewers all hang on to. Without it we lose interest and that’s what kills series!!!!!

  2. Seriously all said & done . Stelena has to be the endgame , even though they are pursuing delena ryt now & even if it has 80% of fan base(probably) . The writers need to show some guts & get this to be the endgame coz , it made the show & it’s so ryt & SO LOVE . Let’s see if they can go beyond the majority

  3. So many people are under the impression that Delena holds 80% of the fans base and that’s just not true with Stelena and Klaroline trending world wide. And Delena is dying a ugly slow death. Even Delena fans are complaining about the lack of chemistry that is not there anymore. And the only ones that wanted Steroline were DE fans who wanted to keep Elena with Damon . Klaus is the one meant for Caroline. Stefan and Elena have been to hell and back but came out the other side stronger and more independent people. Not teenagers anymore but mature adults. Their love is still there epic and forever eternal. I’m so tired of the games these writers play. They talk out of both sides of their mouths. And couldn’t give a straight answer to any of the media reps. Most people can’t understand why a 66 yr old woman would fight so hard for a “ship” Well I’ve been with the show since the beginning. And you fight for what you know is right. The beautiful chemistry between Paul & Nina is so breath taking the love they created is epic true love Love to last an eternity. Writers give the show back to the Stelena fans I know you can get it done. And it would be the right thing to do and hopefully help keep Nina with the show through S7 I know Paul & Nina have larger plans for their futures. Writers please I know you can do this. Please please.

  4. Stefen and elena looks amazing together….their love is epic….there’s some magic when both are together…..i wish i could see them together on show….

  5. I cannot believe that they put something so wretchedly horrible in Stelena’s place. Look at all the beautiful, incredible things all these people say about Stelena! And all the things people say about Delena. I for one have messaged Julie Plec (all about Stelena and how much it means to everyone) but I never got a reply. Though she has told the media things like: My cup overflows with Stelena it always does, and that she and Caroline and Kevin can make it turn from Steroline and Delena to Stelena and that Stefan and Elena’s friendship is very strong and they can fall in love. Um if you want to live up to what you say you have to give them more than one scene every 2 episodes! And Nina cannot stand kissing Ian anymore she wants to leave the show because of Delena! They are gonna be endgame, Julie said it herself. She said she has to finish the show with what it began with. And that would be Stelena.

  6. please! get them back together… nothing beats the stelena chemistry!! i shouldn’t be. but I am obsessed with them!
