Do you guys notice Elena’s left hand in this scene? That one little motion of Elena’s hand, that ONE TINY THING is the very heart and soul of why I love Stefan and Elena’s relationship and why they are one of the healthiest pairings I have ever seen in my life. Why they break the mold of normal flighty Twilight teenage love. Elena’s left hand exhibits the strength and maturity of Stefan and Elena’s relationship in such a slight and subtle way. SHE’S NOT LOOKING BACK. When Damon was telling Stefan to calm Elena down, Elena never ONCE looked BACK at Stefan. She KNEW. She already knew he would come to her side. She already knew he would be there. She doesn’t tell him to stop. She doesn’t look at him. She sends her hand flying backwards, and she just waves at him. And never looks back. She KNEW that by that one little wave of her hand that Stefan would never try to stop her. In that little tiny motion of Elena’s hand, she is saying “Stefan, I can do this.” And do you know what Stefan did? He respected that one little wave of her hand. He stood beside her the whole time, letting her say what she needed to, letting her get her anger our, letting her cry, LETTING HER STAND UP FOR HERSELF AND HER FRIENDS. He wasn’t her knight in shining armor who wanted to whisk her away and just fix everything for her. Stefan let’s Elena be her own knight in shining armor and he is her partner who stands beside her the whole time in case the knight needs a little help. The RESPECT in Stefan and Elena’s relationship… it’s marvelous. I don’t ship them, but their relationship never fails to leave me in awe.
