Ok everybody this is my first article and I am not very good at this but I am giving it a try. OK I have watched from the very beginning every Elena and Damon scene from seasons 1-3. I have researched and watched every move that they make and how they look towards eachother.I am going to start on why Elena deserves to be with Damon.
From the beginning we see that when Bonnie touches Elena, she sees a black crow. The crow symbolizes Damon. When she met Damon in 1x02 she instantly had a connection with him from the moment she looked at him. She felt like something was there. Damon makes her believe to be a better person than she was before. He helps her make a decision to quit the cheerleading squad and she took his advice. I know that Damon was going after Elena because she resembled Katherine and he wanted to make his brother angry. But the thing is with Damon is that he just wanted to find the love of his life that he lost. The scene that really touched me was when Elena was sleeping and Damon was caressing her face with his fingers and I knew from right then on that he was in love with human Elena. Elena was all giddy and happy that she was with Stefan but you do not see them act like a couple because they don't have that spark. When you see Elena talk to Damon or even looking at Damon, you see that instant connection along with that spark. I know for a fact that Elena realized that she was falling for Damon in season 1 episode 19 where they were dancing together, that's when I knew that the official triangle had begun. Elena deserves Damon because he has that dangerous,rebel attitude and he fights for what he loves. He always tells Elena the truth even if it hurts her but she knows he is right. Elena and Damon's relationship turned into something more than just a friendship and to be honest, I like where they are taking this because they are making the relationship even stronger than it was before. Elena wants passion, romance, and danger. Damon has all of those qualities, where as Stefan goes, he only brings affection and less danger. I know that every Delena shipper gets all upset because both Elena and Katherine picked Stefan. Damon only reacts on anger because he is heartbroken due to the fact that the girl he loved for 100's of years only wanted Stefan. And now Elena. But Elena still is confused on how to tell Damon how she really feels and she still left the door open for Damon at the end of season 3. She does love Damon because she could not resist in 3x19 lol (Who would blame her? lol). But I was proud of what Damon said when he says that you have to make this decision for yourself, I am not going to react on anger. That's when it grew even stronger. Now that Elena has died and is now going to become a vampire, she is going to be confused and rely on both Damon and Stefan for support. I know Damon will go back to being the badass he was back in season 1 because he is still greiving over Elena choosing Stefan. But he is always on Elena's side and helping her cope with her transition and life on being a vampire. I hope in season 4 that they make a beautiful scene where Elena remembers all of her compulsions and talk with Damon about it and it will lead in to something more. Now Damon on deserving Elena, Damon in season 1 was him being the bad guy and finding Katherine. He would kill people just for the fun of it. Elena did not really like in the beginning but when she got to know Damon she liked him. Damon thought that Elena was not the worst company to have around. Damon says that Elena is the best friend that he has had in a long time in 1x11. Damon feels grateful because Elena saved his life. He will protect Elena from anything or anyone even if it means risking his on life. He even said that he would choose Elena. Elena is the missing link in Damon's heart and soul. It makes him happy and it makes who he was back in 1864. When he was a very teenager. Damon and Elena belong together and when that time comes, I know all the Delena shippers will be ecstatic and moved. There are going to be scenes that we like and that we don't like but it gets us even more pumped to know what happes next. I think my favorite overall scene is in 3x18 where Damon has a hallucination and Elena comes and saves him and makes him drink her blood. That scene was so touching even though it wasn't real, it just goes to show you how deep Damon is and how much he loves Elena. It's beautiful. A bad guy who has the most deepest and most caring heart has fallen in love with a girl who loves someone else. But I hope in season 4 and hopefully season 5 we will see a huge Delena relationship blossiming. That's why Damon deserves Elena. Damon and Elena for the win and forever. <3
