Age Difference And How To Write It, Or Not - The Fandomentals
Let Her Go” feels like back-to-basics The Vampire Diaries, in all the best ways. I can't figure out how to parse this relationship, myself, but I'm What is the age difference between Stefan and Damon supposed to be?. "Vampire Diaries" heartthrob Ian Somerhalder is very single. for each other, Somerhalder says that Damon (and Stefan!) are trouble for Elena. added that the age difference between Damon and Elena is a major issue. Stefan Salvatore is a fictional character from L. J. Smith's novel series The Vampire Diaries. He is portrayed by Paul Wesley in the television series of the same name. Born on November 1, , Stefan was turned into a vampire in , at the age of 17, by Katherine Pierce, with his brother Damon Salvatore. Stefan has a love-hate relationship with his brother, Damon Salvatore .
Eventually magic reverted Katherine to her true age and she perished. She eventually rose in the afterlife to become Queen of Hell. Then in the final series episode, she plotted to destroy Mystic Falls but Damon, Stefan, and Bonnie destroyed Hell first, while she was in it.
If Vampire Diaries had an archvillain, it was definitely Katherine. Her tangled relationship with the Salvatores made it that much more fun to watch Dobrev be bad.
Valerie is that weak link. Valerie first appears as one of the Heretics. The romance never felt like the great love the show kept insisting it was. Stefan had a much stronger connection with his platonic vampire buddy, Lexi. In season 1, Caroline found Stefan attractive, but he had eyes only for Elena. Later, when Stefan saved Caroline from Damon, they did become friends. In S2, after Damon turned Caroline, Stefan became her mentor and voice of decency, keeping her from becoming just a bloodsucking fiend.
That bond would sustain them for several seasons, though after Elena moved on to Damon, Stefan found himself feeling more than buddy-thoughts about Caroline. As so often happens, though, problems got in the way of true love.
They did get together eventually, but then Valerie came along and Stefan wound up running from Rayna with her. In the end, Stefan returned to Caroline. Of the three besties Elena, Bonnie, and Caroline, Bonnie had the least love-life activity over the run of the show.
They take care to have their characters behave like equals out of it. The authors of this kind of problematic thing, on the other hand, do the exact opposite. It simply combines into an especially deadly cocktail. But then, I see plenty of this in slash fiction as well, though perhaps not so extreme, so clearly, the gender dimension is not necessary. It just adds flavour.

Edward condescends to Bella, tries to control her life, acts as if she is incapable of handling herself in basic situations…the whole nine yards. Here, have a citation: He was gripping a fistful of my jacket in one hand. It was all I could do to keep from falling backward. I staggered along sideways across the wet sidewalk until we reached the Volvo.
I was mentally calculating my chances of reaching the truck before he could catch me. If Bella was a toddler, perhaps it would be appropriate. Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, especially, would be a good fit for this one as well. Her relationship with Tommen is clearly romanticized there, at least to a degree. And yet what she does to him… This point goes to all the characters who use their better understanding of any situation to direct the relationship.
Only then you realize they arranged everything in the relationship according to their own preferences. The younger one in the couple just goes along with it because they are too inexperienced to notice what is happening.
Also, particularly in supernatural settings, this often goes hand in hand with withholding information. That is a manipulatory tactic par excellence, and non-human romantic interests often employ it. They know so much more about this strange world the human has just encountered, of course it should be them making all the decisions! Instead of, you know, maybe telling their partner everything relevant and then deciding together.
Because that would be boring, right? Now, this needs a disclaimer, so please let me first state unequivocally: But talking about fiction… We all know that the legal age of consent is a construct created because you have to put the line somewhere.
So thinking that simply waiting until one of the characters is legal solves all of the problems inherent in underage relationships is an illusion.
If both characters talk about it and decide they very much want to avoid prison, and so waiting seems like a good idea, good for them. If, that is, the dynamic is explored in the other areas of the relationship. Then by all means have them wait. Even though the younger one claims they are more than ready. It sounds reasonable, but it is actually problematic. Now, Ginny insists that she is ready to have sex.
If she does, she is fulfilling nr. If Ginny tells Tonks she is ready to have sex, Tonks can do a few things. Then Ginny will perhaps admit that she is not so sure after all, and they will discuss why she felt compelled to say so.
In a real life relationship, such a situation should be addressed. That means it should be addressed in fiction as well. But then, an adult has absolutely no business being in a relationship with an actual child, so anything beyond that is irrelevant, really. Luckily, Stefan realizes that Jeremy is a potential hunter, and tells him that to save his sister, he must kill a vampire.
Jeremy kills the hybrid Chris who originally helped them free Elena, and in turn her hallucinations end, and she is safe, but only barely. Later then, Stefan breaks up with Elena because of her feelings for Damon. Stefan goes to Caroline for support since she loathes Damon, and they become closer.

Elena tries to tell him that she doesn't need the cure if it means it hurts Jeremy. That night Elena comes to stay at the Salvatore house, and Stefan leaves to crash at Caroline's. While there, he and Caroline realize that Elena is sired to Damon.
When Stefan informs Damon of this, they go to New Orleans to find the witch that broke a sire bond years ago that Damon had.

Silas then reveals that Stefan is his doppelganger. Silas was the one who created the immortality spell years ago however, as nature creates a balance for everything, it created a version of Silas that could be killed, a shadow-self which ends up being Stefan. Silas then locks Stefan into a vault and drowns him in the river.
This incident tempts Stefan to turn his humanity off in order to escape. Stefan happens to be in the safe for 3 months where he keeps on hallucinating.

Instead, a very powerful witch Qyetsiyah had opened the safe for him and fried his brain due to which he suffers from amnesia.
Stefan returns to his old ways but when he saves Elena from Tessa, she wants revenge so he gives Stefan his memories back which gives Stefan Hallucinations of the safe. Caroline tries to help him but when that doesn't work, Katherine comes back in the picture and manages to cure Stefan but they have a one-night stand, which leads Katherine to believe that Stefan still loves her, however he rejects her.
Later on, Katherine takes over Elena's body and breaks up with Damon so that she can get Stefan. After trying to woo him and failing, Stefan realises that Katherine is pretending to be Elena and Elena is with Nadia, Katherine's daughter. They rescue her somehow by killing Katherine and sending her to some sort of hell.

Near the end of the season, Stefan and Elena keep seeing dreams of the two being together and of them as humans.
They work out that the travellers planted those dreams there as it was always meant to be Stefan and Elena not Damon and Elena. Through the fight, Stefan and Elena are kidnapped by the travellers as they need their blood to finish their spell. In 5x21, Stefan tries to save Caroline's life from Tyler while a passenger, Julian, is in his bodyduring which Tyler kills him, sending him to the disintegrating Other Side.

Damon, then returns to Mystic Falls and meets Stefan first which brings Stefan back to his friends. To make things worse, Enzo tells the other vampire hunter about Ivy and all the other vampires and the vampire hunter kills Ivy but is killed by Damon before the vampire hunter would kill anyone else. Enzo, figures out that Stefan's niece, Sarah is alive and that Damon had thought that he had killed Sarah before she was born but Sarah was born before her mother died however, Stefan kept this from Damon and Enzo uses this against Stefan.
