Vampire Diaries’ Elena & Stefan: Soul Mates

Sorry Damon. We're SOULMATES.

All you Elena & Stefan shippers can breathe a sigh of relief. Although the love triangle of Damon-Elena-Stefan is still alive and kicking, and likely will be for the show’s run… the show’s runners are on your side. Read on for spoilers.

The problem is, that all TV relationships need D-R-A-M-A, or people will stop watching (that’s the theory, anyway). That’s where Damon comes in to mess with cute high-school (on Elena’s side) lovers Elena & Stefan. Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson explain this for us as best they can:

“This show is cemented in a love triangle over the whole run of the series,” notes exec producer Julie Plec, “and right now we’re very much embedded in the pure love [of] Stefan and Elena.” So not even a kiss? Yes, Plec teases, but “probably beyond season 1.” Adds boss man Kevin Williamson: “This show is always going to be about Stefan and Elena. It has to be. They’re soul mates.”

I’m good with that – are you? Elena can certainly end up with Stefan… if there’s some Damon intervention on the way.

    thank god! I don’t mind that Elena might take comfort in Damon at a few parts of the show, we do need drama. But I do mind if this becomes an Elena Damon paired tv show. As much as some people are wishing for that to happen, it won’t because Elena and Stefan are perfect for each other and will be together in the end.

    Can i say that i am relieved? Man do i adore Stefan and Elena together. They are simply adorable and soul mates. I am seriously relieved. Damon is cool and funny, but ripping Elena from Stefan is exactly the same as killing kittens. I can understand for Delena fans for Damon wanting to be happy, but i don’t understand why Stefan needs to be hurt for Damon to be happy?

    OH NO!!! Reading this… my heart is broken beyond pieces…
    Damon and Elena have the greatest chemistry in the TV History!!!:)
    Stefan and Elena’s scenes have definitely NO depth …
    I think Stefans real true love was and is Katherine!
    Good God, hopefully the writers realize that and DELENA will be endgame… DAMON IS ELENA’S SOUL’S ETERNAL MATE

    Thanks God it’s all about Stefan/Elena. I don’t think I could stomach a relationship between Damon/Elena esp. after all the horrible things he has done to her. Stelena are the “soul-mates” and nothing, including the rabid Delena fans is gonna change that. That’s the story. Elena is in love with Stefan, not Damon. She cares about Damon but she doesn’t love him in that way at all.

    OF COURSE, ELENA LOVES DAMON TO THE SAME EXTENT THAT SHE IS IN LOVE WITH STEFAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read the books and the authors (L.J. Smith) comment.
    And in the show, Elena is deeply denial her love to Damon… but she will awake and realize the truth feelings for him.
    Besides, just because Stefan/Elena kept calling each other soul mates doesn’t mean they are!!!
    Damons first love is Katherine and Elenas is Stefan, they can grow out of their first love and find the real love to one another and make each other happy^___^
    In the books, Damon, from early on, could tell the difference between Elena and Katherine (unlike Stefan!)
    And Elena saw Damon as her soul’s eternal mate in her dream.
    She is thinking of Damon: “But then she remembered something else, just a flash:looking up at Damon’s face in the woods and feeling such excitement,such affinity with him. As if he understood the flame that burned inside her as nobody else ever could. As if together they could do anything they liked, conquer the world or destroy it. As if they were better than anyone else who had ever lived. She remembered something else, how Damon kept her safe, even been gentle with her.”
    “And now, certainly, Elena felt like a flame. We were meant to be this way. She couldn’t remember if it was an old quote of Damon’s or something new he was just barely whispering to her mind now. Like two flames that join and merge into one.”

    “This person belonged with her, he was her magic, her solace her best beloved”

    Quotes:

    The whole Soulmate thing MEANS nothing…
    Has not Bella call Jacob in the book her soul mate (quote:
    Two futures, two soul mates… too much for any one person.
    Bella Swan, Eclipse, Chapter 26, p.599) But Edward was her drug and her life (and in Jacobs opinion not good enough for her, he J was healthier for B) and we all know how it ends.

    Everyone is saying that Elena and Stefan are soul mates. I agree. But soul mates are two people who come together, and they are just immediately in love, like SE, but the connection could be temporary. The thing is, a person could have an INFINITE amount of soul mates, its true, the relationship could be forever, OR it could be only a month. A soul mate is someone who helps you on the course of your life and the way it is supposed to be… that is where Stefan comes in for his bigger part. I do NOT think that SE will be endgame. Stefan was Elena’s soul mate, because he brought her to her next part in life, he brought her to Damon (or, well, Damon kinda tagged along with Stefan making his life a living hell, but still, without Stefan, Damon wouldn’t be there). Damon is not Elena’s soul mate, he is her TWIN FLAME and Soul’s Eternal Mate.

    So, anything can happen…

  • Wondercheeka

    well this is VERY old. the writers of the show have said completely different things after this haha…so Damon just confessed his love for Elena and everyone’s hearts reached out to him and the Dleena fanbase grew EVEN MORE than it already had. I don’t think the wirters would want the Delena fanbase to be too upset in the end…so I’m still hopeful (slong with all the Delena fanbase) YAY DELENA! DELENA FOREVER! :D this old article won’t get me worried :)

  • Stelena
