i don’t want them to bring her into the show in more than just flashbacks, i don’t want her to have become a vampire. i just don’t.
so many people say that elena was wrong in doing it, that she was being a hypocrite by taking away his choice, but i guess its time for my unpopular opinion: i don’t think she was completely wrong. anyone with siblings might feel the same way. yes, elena wanted to be able to make her own choices in the time leading up to the sacrifice, telling everyone it was her choice to make, but she did it because she was trying to save her loved ones. she had jeremy compelled to save him, to give him a normal life, because she thought it was the right thing to do. at the time they compelled him the other originals weren’t awakened yet, so its not like they could have seen the kol thing coming. they thought jeremy would be safe. also, stop laying the blame for this compulsion deal on elena alone, alaric was there too. if you’re going to blame elena for it, blame alaric too.
but to be honest here, and let’s all be honest here, we would all do anything to protect our siblings. i know that i would, i would die for my siblings, if one of my siblings needed a heart i would end my own life just to give them one and if i thought for a second that they were in danger by being around me or staying in our hometown and i had a vampire like damon to compel them i would. in a heartbeat. yes, its wrong to take away someone’s choices and maybe its selfish to make choices for them against their will, maybe even a little wrong, but to keep loved ones safe most people will do anything.
if you disagree, if you tell me that you wouldn’t do anything for your siblings including compelling them because you think they’re safer if they leave, then i must admit i honestly don’t believe you. unless you hate your sibling for deep dramatic family issues then i won’t believe it, but if you love your brother(s) and/or sister(s) even half as much as i love mine then you’d do it. admit it and stop hating on elena for what she did to protect jeremy.
keep in mind that when she found out he wasn’t safe they went to go get him, to bring him home and that if for one second elena thought he wouldn’t be safer in denver she never would have done it.
