Elena was so offended when Stefan wanted to erase his memories of her, but it’s okay if SHE does it. Lmao. At least she’s consistent in her hypocrisy.
But I /used to/ love Stelena.
Why was Elena so shocked when she was reminded that she loved Damon while she was with Stefan? Let’s be honest with ourselves, please.
After seeing the crap Damon put Enzo through, it makes me wonder how he could ever justify holding a grudge against Stefan again.
It’s like Enzo literally woke up one morning and decided to have this bullshit vendetta against Stefan who hasn’t done anything to him.
KICKASS WOMEN IN HISTORY : [3/5] HATSHEPSUT
Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful women in the ancient world. She was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt and she ruled longer than any other woman in Egyptian history. Hatshepsut was married to her sickly half brother, Thutmose II, and the two of them began to co-rule after the death of their father, Thutmose I, in 1492 BC In 1479 BC, Thutmose II died and Hatshepsut continued to rule by herself until her own death in 1458 BC. It is believed by many Egyptologists and historians that Hatshepsut was one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful monarchs. She commissioned many building projects and reestablished trade networks that had been disrupted by the Hyksos invaders of the Second Intermediate Period. Hatshepsut also led a large-scale expedition to the Land of Punt, a wealthy and sophisticated country to the south of Egypt. Hatshepsut is also believed to have led successful military campaigns in Nubia, the Levant, and Syria during her reign.
Act 7 // Mamoru Chiba - Tuxedo Mask -
"One moment you are upset, the next you are smiling… And sometimes you show the strength in your eyes… My true wish is… You… Usako."
- enzo told stefan ‘brothers don’t give up - umm didn’t damon tell elena to give up on stefan in season 3 because he wasn’t coming back
- elena fell in love with damon in 3x01? - umm didn’t julie plec say that elena would not and could not fall in love with damon until she became a vampire, and didn’t elena say in 4x08 ‘i think i’m falling in love with him’
- "i stayed completely faithful to stefan" - umm except all those times you were kissing his brother
- damon killed the love of enzo’s life and left him to die in a fire, yet for some reason they’re brotp is hella tight and he’s sworn vengeance against stefan for literally no reason - umm are you sired bro?
- "my evil doppelganger was smarter than me" - umm literally everyone is smarter than you elena, this shouldn’t come as a surprise
- that whole speech enzo gave stefan ‘i will bring you the misery you deserve’ - UMM MISERY FOR WHAT? BEING THE ONLY PERSON ON THE SHOW TO HANDLE THEIR GRIEF IN AN UNPROBLEMATIC AND HEALTHY WAY?
And that was my point.
Korra lashing out at everyone around her isn’t okay. She needs to look within herself and realize what she has done and stop blaming the people around her. Lashing out on Katara not okay — lashing out on Tenzin who has TRIED to help her and she constantly pushes him away not okay.
An apology doesn’t mean anything when you’re so disrespectful to the people who are trying to help you.
That was all I was trying to say, being ‘human’ is not an excuse for me anymore because it’s the same one that has been used to justify her behavior for the last four books and I am honestly done.
Need I point out that when Katara looked visibly hurt by Korra’s stressed out rant, Korra immediately saw what she did wrong and apologized for it? Remind you of anything? Oh yeah - Katara and Aang in “The Waterbending Scroll.” The woman who’s now on the receiving end of hurtful words said out of emotional stress used to be a teenager who did the same damn thing - you think she’s going to hold this against Korra when she does it now?
Doesn’t matter if she’s “a waterbending master” who “brought the fucking avatar back from the dead.” She, like Korra, is still human, and she, like Korra, was once young and prone to acting immaturely when under emotional stress to the point of saying things she didn’t actually mean.
Wow you literally missed what I was trying to say. My point was Korra was yelling at Katara for saying she couldn’t help her which is total bullshit considering she has done all these amazing things (Including becoming a master waterbender at 14 because yes that is important) with her healing abilities including bringing back the avatar.
But since you’ve mention her behavior I’ll address that now:
The fact of the matter is Katara is someone who supported Korra from day one. When the White Lotus told Korra she wasn’t ready to leave the compound — it was Katara who immediately came to her defense and even told her that she didn’t need their approval to do what she needed as the Avatar. She’s frustrated — who wouldn’t be, but taking that anger out one someone who is trying to help you is not okay.
Telling Tenzin she would physically assault him because of the advice he was trying to give her is NOT okay.
Need I remind you how different the situation between Katara blowing up on Aang and Korra being disrespectful to Katara? Did you forget that Korra is 19 compared to Katara who was only 14 years old at the time? Katara being an inexperience waterbender was frustrated that someone whose knowledge of waterbending was even more limited than hers was able to accomplish something. Did you note the differences in Katara and Aang’s reaction? He looked confused to why she was so upset verse Katara was hurt by what Korra had said to her. Different reactions to different circumstances because the situations are different.
Not being able to understand something verses someone saying something blatantly hurtful is totally different.
You can’t compare the situations because they aren’t alike in nature. The fact you don’t believe Korra shouldn’t hold Katara (or any adult in her life for that matter) to a higher stand disappoints me.
A situation with Katara that would actually parallel with your argument is when Katara told Sokka he didn’t love their mother as much as she did in The Southern Raiders. I feel for Katara and her pain, but taking that out on Sokka (just as Korra was taking it out on her) is not excusable. Katara was wrong for say that to him and there is nothing justifiable to excuse her reasons for saying that.
That is Korra’s biggest problem, her behavior is always excusable and it’s ridiculous. The ‘she’s only human’ argument is invalid and people in this fandom always come to when it comes to her behavior. We are all human and things happen and how we handle the stresses in life is a reflection of our character. She doesn’t deal with it and takes it out on other people.
No one wants to accept the fact that Korra brings her problems onto herself and instead of lashing out on the people around her she needs to look within herself.
Telling someone to ‘shut up because you’re doing something better than I am’ verses ‘I am failing and it’s your fault because you don’t know what you’re doing’ is very different.
If you’re going to #doublestandards check your facts first.
Yes Korra, Katara can’t heal you
pretty sure she brought the fucking avatar back from the dead
but you falling through your physical therapy after recovering from a major illness is totally her fault
yes she can’t heal you
