Whatever happens tonight in the finale, those on my dash that mock or shun elena for her ‘choice’
or lack of one hopefullywill be unfollowed by me. Elena is her own person and does not need anyone to define her. There should be no ‘payoff’ for either Salvatore brother for all of their effort in protecting her, loving her and helping her. No one ‘earns’ any affection by doing something chivalrous for the one they love.
The affection should be mutual, shared between two souls, expecting nothing in return because that is what love is.
On behalf of Elena Gilbert, I humbly ask fandom and those that follow me to take this into consideration. Love is not about owing anyone anything…
