And no matter what challanges might carry us apart, we will always find a way to get back to each other.
I love her bravery and commitment in this. That’s what love is about. That’s what Stelena is about (besides everything else that makes their relationship so special, pure and beautiful). Commitment.
She could have just walked out on him in that split second; she could have left it to Damon. Yes, she may have felt responsible because she was the cause of it all in the first place. But, why involve yourself into something you have no crucial knowledge of? She’s never dealt with a vampire out of control. And in her wildest dreams, never had she imagined that one day she would. But she did. And she stood by it. Because she loved that vampire with all her heart. The first time he turned his vicious vampire eyes and fangs to her back in the previous episode, fear drowned her face. She couldn’t believe what she saw, although she knew she did that to him. She was terrified to look at him. He does the same in this scene to make her leave but she doesn’t even blink once. She stands still, looks him right in the eyes and forcefully says ‘No’. An alternate way of saying ‘I’m not going anywhere because like it or not, I’m going to help you get through this.’ And it’s in that precise moment when Stefan, once again, drops his head like before. Although this time, not because he’s ashamed of what he’s revealed to her; but because he sees that commitment. He realizes how she’s willing to do anything to help him; how unimaginably great her trust is; how she’s ready to take this ‘stupid risk’ for him; how she’ll stand by him and his vampire issues, no matter what; how someone can actually love him so much that they’re eager to stay even after everything they’ve witnessed; how he’s on the verge of giving up but can’t because of her; how he’s so ridiculously lucky to have her;
”you were the only thing that haskept me from giving up.”
