I'm terribly late with fics for the meme, but I have this awkward feeling that if I was late with the meta, my head would roll (I'm looking at you, Frances), so here I am. The post is freakishly long, which may or may not imply that I have no life. I regret nothing. The banner was made for me by [ profile] juana_a for another Damon/Elena meta, and I'm shamelessly recycling. The title comes from Richard Siken's “Litany in Which Certain Things Are Crossed Out”. The screencaps I'm using belong to ladymanson. The thoughts, I'm afraid, are mine.

My first instinct was to write this meta chronologically. Just describe step by step how this relationship was developing, and end with a big speculation paragraph explaining how, obviously, my idea for future Damon/Elena is the only acceptable idea ;). But then: I've read metas like that. They were damn good metas. I might have two or three new things to add, but not enough to make this post worth reading for anyone who is at least remotely interested in the ship; we've been through the whole “Damon tries to seduce her to mess with Stefan => she shows compassion => Georgia => Katherine not in the tomb etc” thing, haven't we? So that's not how this meta is going to work. Screw chronology. Let's talk about themes.

Warnings: This is a Damon/Elena meta prompted by [ profile] ever_neutral for my December Meme of Doom. No functional relationships will be found in this post. No shipwars will be found in this post. Not enough graphics will be found in this post, because I have no Photoshop skills :(. All the romantic delusions that can be found in this post belong solely to Damon. Oh, and there are spoilers up to TVD 3x09.

Love Always Wakes the Dragon )

And, finally, some recs. Because I actually, you know, treated this meta seriously, so I've been reading things, and talking to people.

— There were two amazing Damon/Elena discussions on my own journal; they just came out of nowhere and consumed a few days of my life. They're both pretty chaotic, but if anyone is interested, it's scattered around those posts: click click.

[ profile] ever_neutral wrote an incredible Damon/Elena meta after s2: All You've Done is Give Up. When I was writing my post, I was trying very hard not to mention things covered by Alex, because why would I copy-paste?

[ profile] laniaaa wrote an awesome meta explaining why she ships Damon/Elena and how Damon is a horrible person: very big, very long discussion on why i ship my otp, and why i sometimes hate it .

If you have some more D/E discussion or meta recs, please do tell :).

I've had this phase before, and I got over it. But today [ profile] ever_neutral gave me some recs, and I started reading, and I'm sort of obsessed again. I was supposed to make a TVD Christmas Speculation Post, but it can wait, it's still November ;). Vamp!Elena is in my head RIGHT NOW!

Welcome back, obsession. I sort of missed you.

Here I speculate about fanfiction )

It seems that I'm done with all the comment ficathon fics I wanted to write, so I'm just going to post them here before it occurs to me to write yet another one.

The Vampire Diaries Free-For-All Comment Ficathon is hosted by [ profile] softly_me, who should be eternally loved and worshiped for doing such an amazing thing. If you want to read some more, masterlist by pairing/character can be found here.

For the entire week I was totally behaving like this crazy shipper person; I didn't even know I could write so much Damon/Elena in such a short time. Oh well. I regret nothing.

Warning: since ratings and warnings are not required in places where I usually post, I'm not sure if I got them right. It's all pretty angsty, so theoretically I should warn and everything, but then it feels so silly to warn for angst in TVD... So if you spot that I made a mistake, could you please let me know?

Everything was written after TVD 3x09 Homecoming, so, to be on the safe side, let's say that this is how far the spoilers go.

This entry is based on a comment I posted in an episode discussion hosted by [ profile] ever_neutral. It's some sort of an intellectual experiment ― I'm bored, my literature classes are not as good as I expected them to be, my TVD discussions on a forum are mostly dying, so I've been entertaining myself with creating this interpretation. I'm well aware that it's not the only possible way of looking at the show, and it certainly leaves out some aspects, but, well. If I wanted to include everything, I'd have to write a book ;).

Spoilers up to TVD 3x04. Huge thanks to [ profile] le_mru and [ profile] ever_neutral for giving me some new ideas :D.

Damon, Elena, Stefan - the question of narratives )

I'm sorry if I don't answer to your comments right away; I have a family event to attend, and I'll be back online tommorow.

Corrected by [ profile] idrilka. At least this time it was fun for her, because I'm braindead and I made some typos that are gonna be remembered for the next ten years.

Again, I wasn't supposed to be writing about Elena. I was supposed to focus on Donna Noble (Doctor Who) and do it in Polish, but than I started reading all those TVD meta posts and discussions on [ profile] womenlovefest and they are so inspiring I can't stop writing about TVD characters. Seriously, this started out as celebrating female characters, but right now it's a huge brainstorm that gives me loads of meta ideas and five plotbunnies per hour. Since there is a ficathon coming on [ profile] multifandom_pl, I really owe you guys.

I am a faithful Elena/Damon shipper, although my ideas as to how this ship could look like started to change as the series went on. I also enjoy my threesome and I have some secondary pairings I support, but when it comes to romantic relationships in TVD, Elena/Damon is my main point of focus (partly because there is a girl on my flist who writes such amazing Stefan I don't even have the courage to start). Only during the fest-related discussions did I realize that this ship is actually my way of interpreting Elena, so it might be interesting to write a meta instead of yet another fic.

Because I'm an Elena/Damon shipper for all the wrong reasons.

There are many other things I'm supposed to be doing right now, and I wasn't even going to write anything about Elena for [ profile] womenlovefest, but I can't help it, I need it out of my system ;).

The only argument I ever had about Elena took place a couple of months ago during some episode discussion on 2x20 The Last Day and I still strongly belive in everything I said back then, so I might as well make it into a short yet proper meta.
