I totally, totally agree. Stefan and Elena's story in the books was a LOT, a lot less Twilight-y than it is in the show. In the show, they have an instant attraction to each other, whereas with Damon and Elena they have, like what Dhruvi said, flirty banter which makes them fun to watch. Stefan and Elena had so much more in the books, and if you've read the books it makes their story on screen that much more disappointing.

I have a lot more to say on this, but the words just don't feel like coming out right now, so I'll say more when my brain decides to cooperate. *glares at brain*

Bhav (:

I agree. From what i heard from friends, SE in the book were magical.. eternal. Nothing could beat the love for Stefan in Elena's heart. But in the show.. that doesn't seem to be the case. They rushed their love story so fast on top of that. I like SE. I would have LOVED them if their love was something like in the books.

Maybe it is because I read the first book in a haste but I thought that Stefan and Elena didn't get a proper build-up in the books either.
 I agree that SE didn't get a good start in the show but I think if you keep the lack of build up aside, they are adorable and kind of epic.  I love their interactions and their cute little love scenes. Embarrassed

Tell me about it. SE in the books are EPIC to say the least. In the show it seems they pulled a Twilight angle in. SE become another EB and sadly it doesn't make me happy as a shipper. Because this triangle is uneven now. DE get this buildup-- so when comparing the two, people will lean towards DE. Because Elena's love for Stefan will seem almost weird in a sense and people will question that rather than her love for Damon which will be built slowly...
For me DE angle is better in Elena's side, IMO. The whole Isobel coming in and saying Damon is in love with her, that was meh for me. Not because I root for DB. It's just, HE CARES FOR HER, not love her, love her. So why did he give her a Romeo look to her?! The change in him is too fast. It's like the build up is there but at the same time they want this triangle to be full blast.
You've stolen the word right out of my mouth LOL... Even though I love both SE & DE I think SE's relationship/attraction was way too fast... I'd have liked it to have been more gradual...

I like Stefan and Elena's relationship. Sure, the book SE were better but the show has a different twist that makes SE's relationship seem unique. I don't think it's like Twilight because EB don't share that understanding, it was just like "Im in love with Edward Cullen" sort of thing but for SE, it was different. And as DE, i agree that they were given a better relationship builder plot or whatever but thats because the characters are sort of diff and so they have to change the plotline to make it seem perfect for the chracters. And it was so obvious that Damon was in love with Elena even before Isobel pointed it out. The roadtrip seriously changed everything for them.

I feel like a complete idiot because I missed this post.
Firstllyyy. I think I would have loved Stelena more, if they didn't force the "epicness" bit so much. LIkeee. "we met and it was epic" I know thats a line from the book, but most real epic couples take a little more time than that...and love...takes more time than it took for them.
However, I have been told in the was not so rushed. However..speaking as for the show. I completely agree with Tomiko. .

P.S. I know this is super late and not at all insightful, but ROFL. I still had to comment.
