No offense to the Klaroline shippers, I really like Klaroline, but after seeing Pictures of You I kinda want to see Steroline happen more than I want to see Klaroline :)
They're the only 2 characters who haven't betrayed each other in any way in 4 seasons.
As a Caroline fan I wouldn't want to see it happen because I think it would bee too much like Maroline. Caroline was always so insecure when she was with Matt because she knew he wasn't over Elena yet and that was a major issue for them. Her and Stefan would be the same because in the end Stefan is always going to love Elena more and that will always be something that Caroline will have issues with. Stefan picked Elena first so Caroline would be his back-up choice, just as Caroline was Matt's back-up choice.
yes!!!....steroline look amazing tohether...epic!!!
I Totally Agree :)
No, I like their friendship.
To be frankly honest, how the writers have set this up, I think it works in the favor of having Caroline and Stefan as love-interests for each other. She will NOT be his friend OR anything else until Stefan decides what he actually is doing in his life--other than pining for Elena, something he simply can't get back and shouldn't be even trying too.
How Caroline told him off was perfect, from her vantage point she is clearly asking him to decide whether or not they are friends or actually lovers. From his point of view he thinks (I imagine this'll be true for just a bit) that she really just doesn't want to be his friend anymore; mostly due to his bad behavior. So he may try to fix it, and plead with her, or he may just realize the truth...either way it requires Stefan to realize what she was actually telling him, via innuendo.
If Stefan realizes it and finally sees her as a love interest then I think they have a fairly good shot with each other, because it more than likely means that from his vampiric psychological point of view...he has gotten past Elena and can now recognize a new love...what it feels like to be loved again. That initial spark of intense burning feelings, that he is simply putting on hold.
I think that Steroline will indeed happen, and it will happen because of the mistakes Stefan made this season and how Caroline responded to them. Without that phrasing, and question of love--that to Stefan seems merely rhetorical... It will be the key for Stefan getting past Elena and seeing Caroline for who she really is to him. Caroline is a good enough friend to pull this off (though mostly not on purpose, but she does want what's best for him), but until Stefan realizes the path she has given him...if he so chooses to pursue it...then he too can finally become the friend she does deserve; one that can love her. Because the truth of the matter is that Elena is now doing Lexi's (though so far, she cannot do that job anywhere as well as Lexi OR Caroline because he simply still has eyes for her; hell, even I've had that problem of being consumed by one person and being unable to wake up and see others around you...but eventually you DO come out of that daze and realize the stupidity and even the misery you have been self-inflicting upon yourself) job--he has essentially two best friends and he doesn't realize the emotionally pain he's causing, just like Elena never quite understanding how stupid so many of her actions are...
So we will see...though I doubt they created this setup to REALLY keep Caroline a non-Stefan friend anymore. It's ultimately clear right now, at this point, that they will indeed be a couple (possibly within one of the next three episodes).
The interesting thing about them is that we know Caroline developed feelings for Stefan but she didn't mean to, she always said that they are friends and such but on the contrary Stefan constantly teased her, from simpliest way to the more obvious ones.
5x04 "You are much hotter in person"
5x12 "I have no idea what Klaus saw in you"
5x14 His overprotectiveness against Tyler
5x16 "I would do it for you too" and "Remind me we were friends"
5x17 Holding her hand when they slept
5x20 Brushing her cheek
This doesn't mean anything on the paper but the way Stefan acted makes them teasing and even flirting. In fact I didn't see steroline romance from Caroline's side until the last part of the season. I saw a girl who deeply cares for a friend but I saw it from Stefan's side whole season. Stefan caused her to develop romantic feelings for him. So I think it's Stefan's fault and he subconsciously crossed the friendzone line and he has feelings for her but he has seen her as a friend always since the beginning and between everything he went through and after losing his brother he couldn't have time to think about this kind of stuff.
Wow. People REALLY put a lot of thought into this.......
Well, just my 2 cents while I'm here. I vote no. For the sole reason that their friendship is simply far more meaningful to me than any relationship that causes them to act crazy and violent for each other ever could be (sorry Luke; that neck snap had to hurt.......seriously guys, that behaviour is NOT healthy. Has Delena brainwashed you all into believing getting violent and murdery when your emotional is ok? Or is it something else? Argh, Why can't I work this out? Wow, this went on for a while, I'll stop now,).
Ok, sure, it could work, and I wouldn't particularly mind if they went there, but.......everyone needs a "Lexi". That kind of friendship is precious, and Caroline has been that person for him, for a long time now. The way she's been treating him this season? It's perfectly understandable considering her feelings for him, but it's not the way she would have reacted back when she just saw him as a friend. Which is my point. They'll have to change that dynamic, take away that unconditional kind of support (and yes, relationships do offer a different KIND of support, but it's not the same as having a friend who'll back you no matter what, even if they don't necessarily agree with you; romantic feelings can tangle all that up in hurt, and loss, and betrayal when they act in ways that wouldn't have affected ta true friend anywhere near as badly. Like I said, it's different.).
I just don't want Stefan to lose his only real friend at this point, JUST so they can give him another shot at a romantic relationship outside Elena.
Yes .. I hope julie is slowly making it happen
I agree that sterilize shouldn't be shipped out because Stefan and Elena use to date so if Caroline was dating Stefan that we be wrong to date her best friends ex boyfriend
I love Steroline and I can't say I never ship Klaroline but in my opinion Klaus has other things to worry about, he has a daughter! and he just can't leave everything for Caroline and I think until this episodes of TVD... Caroline will choose Stefan.
What do you think?
