You voted for her and here she is! our December 2011 FOTM, twinflames aka Tanu! Please tell us about yourself...
hujambo everyone. My name is Tanu, and I'm from India. I'm 19 years old, and currently majoring in English Literature. It goes without saying that i upendo Damon and Elena! zaidi au less, I’m obsessed with them xD
Other than that, I upendo animals. I've a pet dog and i absolutely adore him. I like playing basketball, was a part of my school mpira wa kikapu team! People say I’m a shy person and I don't mix up easily with new crowd. I guess so, but once I become Marafiki with a person i just won't shut up! Lol. Yeah, that's all about it. How do wewe feel about winning FOTM?
I'm not at all being modest when i say that I wasn't expecting this title! Seriously. I joined fanpop just 2 months back, and I don't know a lot of people here. So, to be the FOTM on this spot was a total surprise! I'm so happy and overwhelmed. I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. wewe guys are wonderful ;) What is your inayopendelewa thing/s about the Delena spot?
Oh, I just upendo the DE spot! I made an account on fanpop specially to be a part of this spot. This is the first spot I visit everyday after I login. The inayopendelewa part is definitely getting to meet other devoted and passionate DE shippers. I can come here anytime and express my upendo for this ship without feeling awkward. I know everyone would understand me here, and jiunge me in discussing the awesomeness which is DE. I'm addicted to this spot! But hey, no regrets xD When did wewe start shipping Delena?
To be honest, i actually don't remember the exact moment when i started shipping these two. I started watching The Vampire Diaries last January, and i was instantly hooked to this show. So, i watched the season 1 in about 4-5 days. But i do
know that kwa 1.11 Bloodlines, I was rooting for Delena. From then on it has always been them, and I’m sure will always be <3. They have got an undeniable chemistry and a very careful build-up. There's not a thing which this ship lacks! They are remarkably beautiful. I'm so proud to be a Delena shipper. Do wewe ship any other TVD couples aside from Delena?
Yes, i do. Stefan and Katherine! I don't ship them as hard as I ship Delena, but I’d be overjoyed if Steferine end up together. Stefan is not so boring when he's around Katherine, and he brings out the best in Kat. Katherine has always loved Stefan, and still does and I think Stefan too still feels something for Katherine but mostly he's in denial. So I’d upendo it if the writers will explore these unspoken feelings of Stefan for Katherine sometime soon. DE and SK ftw! What is your ideal time, place & situation for the first mutual DE kiss to occur?
Oh jeez! I suck when it comes to imagination! I don't know. I've always imagined it to happen when Damon is terribly angry au frustrated with something, and Elena has to calm him down. zaidi au less like the 3.09 end scene actually! Just minus
the Katherine call :P. But it's going to be way better than this I’m sure. After all it's the most anticipated moment of TVD kwa 75% of the fandom ;) Do wewe ship Nian & how do wewe feel about their real life relationship?
No, not really. I think they make for a really cute (and hot) couple, and I’m happy for them. But I don't ship them as such :) Your juu Delena quote/s are...
Hmm, this would be hard! Lemme see. Apart from Damon's upendo confession, here are my few other juu DE nukuu (in no order)-
* Damon- "I will always choose you
." [2.18] I upendo this quote/scene so much. The sheer intensity of his words shook me.
* Elena- "You and I, we have something... An understanding." [1.14] This quote never gets old, coz it holds so much meaning. Coming from Elena way back in season 1, this quote truly tells how their bond is stronger than anything and everything. I guess these two themselves weren't aware of the hold they had on
each other even during those early episodes. But they have always had this 'something'!
* Elena- "We'll survive this. We always survive. Trust me." [3.09]
Just looking at the 'we' in this quote tells us how far Damon and Elena have come! They are in this together, and together, kwa helping each other and just kwa being there for each other, they'll survive this.
"They are in this together, and together, kwa helping each other and just kwa being there for each other, they'll survive this."
* Damon (to Isobel)- "You do not come into my town, threaten the people I care about. Going after Elena? Bad move. wewe leave her alone au I will rip wewe to bits..." [1.21] Aww. So protective!
* Elena- “I’m here until the very end. I’m not leaving you.” Which Delena scenes has made wewe : Cry?
The 'I upendo You' scene in 2.08 made me teary-eyed. It was such a perfect and breathtaking scene. My moyo broke seeing Damon in such a vulnerable state!
"It was such a perfect and breathtaking scene."
Damon: "No Elena, i will not go to your bedroom with you." [2.18] This scene always cracks me up xD
Damon: "Hey wewe know, wewe should go out, enjoy the sun. Oh wait, wewe can't."[2.11] The whole scene was funny!
Damon throwing Elena in the water in 3.02. Just Lol.. Be proud to be a Delena shipper?
The 1.19 dance scene I guess. This scene just shows that my ship doesn't even need words to onyesha the deep connection they share. They are just flowing with their eyes, Lost in their own little world. Simply marvelous and beyond comparison. Say 'No way!!'
Jeremy Neck Snap Incident i think! Totally unexpected and a shocker. Just when Elena thinks she has got Damon all figured out, our boy does something to snap her out of her reverie! The hottest Delena moment is...
Definitely the 3.06 training scene! So much sexual tension there. It was hot
.Elena was breathing heavily, staring at his lips, and even moved her face so close to his! Ah..
Your inayopendelewa Delena episode (or episodes) and why?
"So much sexual tension there."
As I Lay Dying [2.22] for sure. This episode had their kiss scene, yes. But it's just not that! With DE, it's the little things that count. Yet again we witness Damon being selfless when he doesn't reveal about his werewolf bite to Elena while apologizing. 'He wanted it to be real.' Then we have Elena instantly regretting her actions when she does come to know about that bite from Stefan, and her breaking the window to get to Damon and make sure he's okay. Her being there
for him when he needed her the most. The whole bedroom scene! This episode had it all. One of the best DE episodes. Then there is Bloodlines [1.11] too!
The song that always reminds wewe of Delena and why it does.
"Her being there for him when he needed her the most."
'All I Need' kwa Within Temptation. Whenever i listen to this song, i always picture Damon and Elena in my head. Not only because it was played during their epic dance scene, but mostly because i feel it really describes them and their relationship! They need each other to complete them, to bring out the side of them which is buried deep inside. Have wewe read the books? If so which Delena scene is your favorite?
Yes, i have read the books. Not read Phantom though. There are so many scenes which i like, not possible to state just one! Definitely their first meeting in the gym. Then the scene when both of them are on the terrace of Caroline's nyumbani i guess
(can't recall from which book it is.) Then, i upendo the scene when in Shadow Souls, Damon is tending to Elena's wounds (after she got whipped) at the doctor's place. And obviously, the whole Damon dying scene.
These are the only scenes which i can think of right now. [lol, i hope these scenes made sense to you!] Your inayopendelewa season (1,2 au 3) for Delena is? and why?
I guess it'll be season 3! For the obvious reason that Elena is acknowledging her 'attraction' towards Damon this season. Her and Damon are getting zaidi time to spend together this season resulting in some yummy DE scenes xD We are only 09 episodes into the third season, and already got so many promising scenes of them. Can't wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us. I'm sure we won't be disappointed Any final words?
DE is my OTP! I've never shipped a couple with so much passion as I ship DE. I truly believe they are the endgame. Yes, my trust wavers sometime when I see what the writers say about them now and then. But when I watch the show, there's never a doubt in my mind as to them ending up together. The way they are written is flawless, and nothing can ever diminish my upendo for this ravishing pairing.
They are meant to be. Twin flames, baby!
Also, I would again like to thank everyone on this spot for your upendo and affection.
wewe guys are awesome! upendo wewe all <3
Thank wewe Tanith for this amazing interview. I loved answering all your maswali :)
Hope wewe guys enjoy kusoma it.
And oh, Happy New mwaka everyone. Hope this mwaka brings lots of DE to us :D
