Anonymous asked:

why is damon pushing her away due to self loathing regardless of her feelings and elena clinging onto him due to abandonment issues regardless of his feelings not equally worse? why does elena get a pass for such behavior?

insightfuldamon answered:

I am not here for Elena hate….it is pretty obvious in her journey on this show, that she has never gotten a free pass. Damon isn’t pushing her away because of self loathing, he is challenging her…he is getting her to make a choice of what she really wants because he can’t do friendship. It isn’t him and it isn’t Delena. Elena isn’t clinging to Damon…she is trying to get away with indecision, because indecision is safe. So Damon laid it all out on the table…he can’t do friendship…he loves her so much, that it would hurt to look at her as anything less than his partner for all eternities. That is love…that is real.


d’you think the avengers ever play a game where they try to push steve’s buttons and get him all riled up and patriotic?

tony casually throws it into a conversation like “oh yeah I don’t vote” and steve trails off mid-sentence and gapes for a second before he starts in on the importance of the democratic process and how dangerous it can be if citizens give up their say in how the government is run and tony is trying so so hard to keep a straight face

meanwhile bruce is standing in the background timing the speech with his watch because whoever gets the longest rant wins a little trophy that tony made. the current holder of the trophy is clint who managed to convince steve that he doesn’t pay taxes
