Reviews for Selfish love

See I disagree with you completely in that I don't think she's selfish at all in how she deals with the brothers. In fact I think she's amazingly mature and not selfless but not selfish either in how she deals with them. Remember she's an 18yo child and as hard as it is to know what you want as an adult it's damn near impossible as a 18 yo child. If she were acting selfishly as you think being a normal teenager she'd sleep with both brothers probably right in front of each other without thinking of the consequences of her actions. Instead she stays faithful.

I actually think it was a lot easier to sympathize with Elena here than it was on the show. You had her admit her faults and realize that what she was doing was kind of awful. In canon, she's never actually acknowledged that and I think she should.

So I liked it. Good work. :)

Welcome Back! Damn, its been a long time since you've writtenP Glad you decided to write another D/E story... albeit a little not-so-happy. But it sorta reminded me of the finale of the show pissed that Elena, yet again, chose Stefan... but sort of ok with the fact with how she worded things: "i cant think about -always-, just right now" (well, elena, ALWAYS just got a helluva lot longer and more permanant... ) and the fact that Damon and Elena technically met first... I think she'll be a little pissed that he compelled her, but will eventually (hopefully) understand that he meant well ... And your story was the same way. She's still with Stefan, but understands that ... she might just -need- Damon ... and I'm ok with that. Elena's thought process is a little slower than the rest of us, but I have faith that she'll get there and come to the same conclusion as the rest of us D

I very much agree with your representation of Elena and her seeming inability to control her need for Damon no matter how selfish or hurtful her behavior is. I also liked that you clearly had her understanding her crazy impulses but being unable to do anything about them other than realize that she didn’t like herself very much. As hard a time as I had liking or feeling sympathetic towards her in this story, I would like to see an Elena-first attitude play out next season because she needs to put herself first especially since so much of her needs have been subjugated for the sake of Stefan and their relationship.

Lovely to see you posting another story because I’ve enjoyed all your Damon & Elena pieces. Any chance you’ll continue this because you did give me a little hope that Elena is really beginning to understand just how little her ‘decision’ between the brothers means given her new world. Thanks for sharing.
