Elena is best friends with Bonnie Bennett, Matt Donovan, Caroline Forbes, and Damon Salvatore. Throughout the series, her actions and beliefs are most influenced by her on-and-off romantic relationships with Stefan and Damon Salvatore, and by her antagonistic relationship with her maternal ancestor and fellow doppelgänger, Katerina Petrova. Her life also changes drastically as her friends and herself are caught up in the supernatural world that surrounds them and are forced to face powerful supernatural enemies.
After Jeremy's death, she turns off her humanity. Vampires and particularly hybrids, in some cases, have a sire bond to the one who turned them. A sire bond between vampires is uncommon, but it did exist between Elena and Damon—her sire—because she had strong human feelings for him before she died and was turned into a vampire. He was the one who got her to turn off her emotions, but also got her to turn them back on by killing her close friend, Matt.
During the events of Season Five, she and Damon fought for each other despite the many complications they had to face in their relationship, but Damon broke up with her because he thought he was "bad for her." Elena's body was also possessed by Katherine, who didn't want to die after suffering from the affects of the cure. It took a while for Elena's friends to discover Katherine's lie and when she died, she left a little present for Elena, but this was later cured. Later, she and Damon got back together eventually near the end of the season, but it was short-lived. In order to bring Stefan and others back back from The Other Side, Damon and Elena sacrificed themselves, while Liv Parker performed a spell that the Travelers used to bring back their leader, Markos. But the spell was cut-off before Damon could pass through Bonnie. So he and Bonnie were trapped at the destruction of The Other Side and left in a bright light, leaving Elena and their friends heartbroken by their impending deaths.
She graduated from Mystic Falls High School, where she was a cheerleader, honor student, and one of the most popular girls in the school. Elena wants to become a great writer, and she has a diary in which she writes everything that happens in her life. She was originally turned in this direction by her adoptive mother, who gave Elena her first diary when she was ten. She attends Whitmore College with Caroline and majors in pre-med.
Elena has been struggling to live a normal life ever since her adoptive parents, Miranda and Grayson Gilbert, who are also biologically her aunt and uncle, died in a car accident when she was sixteen years old.
Elena is described as a star student. She is popular, sporty, smart, compassionate, empathetic, caring and friendly. She can be very vulnerable and a damsel in distress.
Elena was born on June 22nd, 1992 in Mystic Falls, Virginia to John Gilbert and Isobel Flemming who both flee town a few days after giving birth. John's brother Grayson and his wife Miranda, who desperately want to have children but are having difficulties conceiving, adopted Elena following her birth. Because Grayson's a doctor, he's able to tamper with the birth records, making himself and Miranda appear as Elena's biological parents on her birth certificate. If anyone ever becomes suspicious, they have the birth certificate for documentation proof. She later gets a younger "brother," Jeremy, who is also her biological cousin.
At age 7, Elena lost her ball in the basement of the Gilbert Building, and almost came across one her father's experiments for the Augustine society after she heard screams, possibly from an unknown vampire. Just as she was about to open the basement's room, she was stopped in time by her father before she could enter the room. Elena at one point tried to decide which of her friend Caroline's traits were the most annoying, her control freakishness or her delusional positivity. Elena told Stefan that in the second grade Caroline had Elena help her build a Barbie castle.
During her sophomore year, Elena has a relationship with Matt Donovan, her oldest friend with whom she formerly shared a crib with. At a bonfire, the two of them get into an argument where, afterwards, she calls her parents to pick her up. While waiting to be picked up, she meets Damon Salvatore who originally confuses her with Katherine. He tells her she wants a love that consumes her as well as passion, adventure and even a little danger when she admits she doesn't know what she wants. Damon then compels her to forget the meeting. Elena's parents then arrive to pick her up.
After leaving the bonfire with her parents, their car unexpectedly drives off Wickery Bridge. Stefan Salvatore, who is nearby, hears the crash and saves an unconscious Elena at Grayson's insistence. Stefan's unable to save her parents and takes Elena to the hospital. Afterwards, she breaks up with Matt and she and Jeremy begin to live with their aunt, Jenna Sommers, who became their legal guardian.
"Take the cure with me. That's how much I know this is real. That's how certain I am that I'm gonna love you even after this is all over. Take the cure. Be human with me. We can be together. Grow old together. This doesn't have to be hard anymore."
As a human, she's the sociable popular girl in school and the girl next door. She's compassionate, caring, empathetic, kind, normally intelligent, beautiful, friendly and easy to get along with. Elena is also athletic and a cheerleader. Elena's favorite hobby is writing in her journal. Elena says that she's always wanted to be a writer. Elena's "dark side" from the books as a human is never explored because it "didn't ever feel like a characteristic" the show wanted for their heroine. Elena's actual dark side is her "deep, deep connection to other people". Elena's always surrounded by drama. She's always helping around in her community events and Caroline calls her the mothering type.
As a vampire, Elena's personality is amplified. In some ways, Elena is considered to be the opposite of Katherine. In terms of blood consumption, Elena wants to live on a diet of animal blood, like Stefan Salvatore, in an attempt to avoid hurting someone. However, after she is unable to keep down animal blood, human blood from a blood bag or vampire blood, she begins to feed from Matt. It is discovered that her inability to consume other sources of blood was unintentionally due to her sire bond with Damon, and eventually begins to live on a diet of blood bags from a human blood bank. Now that Elena is a vampire, her feelings are magnified, including her feelings for Damon, and they're much harder for her to ignore and push aside.
She also struggles with magnified grief from the loss of so many family members, and anger towards those who put her remaining friends and family in danger. As she's learning to live as a vampire, she begins to learn that she has more in common with Damon than she does with Stefan, and while it scares her, it also makes things more exciting and opens her eyes a bit. These feelings eventually lead to her break up with Stefan as well as the discovery of the sire bond, which pushes everyone to find the cure, hidden with Silas in a tomb. Elena has now accepted being a vampire. With her humanity back, she becomes more determined than she wants, she goes back to being tearful in situations of pain and suffering. And more determined to discover mysterious situations making use of their gifts of compulsion.
"I'm going to kill you."
—Elena responds violently to Stefan and Damon's torture
When Elena's brother Jeremy dies during their failed attempt at obtaining the cure, Elena's in denial that he's dead, believing the Gilbert ring will bring him back to life and rejecting anyone who says otherwise. When she finally accepts that he's gone, she breaks into tears. Damon hugs her and tries to calm her down, eventually telling her to "turn it off." She complies.
She doesn't care who sees her doing what. As well as losing her humanity, she's lost her modesty. She doesn't care about the rules. Elena always lived by her set of rules, what she thought was right and wrong, and now it's like she's thrown all the rules to the wind and she just does whatever she wants to do. Elena is more blunt and honest and, "It is what it is and I am what I am and want what I want. And right now I would like to feed on that girl over there. And I resent you for trying to stop me." Elena is more direct about getting exactly what it is that she wants. Elena speaks the truth all the time and it's brutal and not fun for the people who have to listen to it.
Without her human emotions, such as compassion and grief, she doesn't care about anything anymore. She feeds indiscriminately, walks around without clothes, and does what she pleases. While she and Katherine differ in their personalities, with Katherine always lying and playing games, Elena is more blunt and brutally honest, speaking without any tact for anyone's feelings, and saying whatever she has to so that she can get her way. She and Katherine are similar in their abilities to manipulate others, and to think several steps ahead of Stefan or Damon, who are trying to save her. Her actions without her emotions push Stefan and Damon to track Katherine so that they can steal the cure back from her and give it to Elena, hoping it will solve her problems, but they are pushing their beliefs and what they want on her so hard that she feels resentful and frustrated with them, which causes her to act out in unexpected ways, such as getting into a physical fight with Caroline after attacking her mother. She tells them she has no interest in the cure now that she's taking advantage of the perks of being a vampire, and wants them to respect her choice; the more they push her, the more she pushes back. While Damon and Stefan are worried that she will cross the line while her human emotions are shut off and won't be able to take it back, Elena warns them that she has no intentions of taking the cure, and if they don't accept her decision, that there will be consequences.
Physically, Elena is a very beautiful and quite tall young woman with an oval face, light olive complexion, almond-shaped brown eyes which are sometimes described as doe-eyes, and smooth, long, straight dark brown hair. Her height is 5'7 (168 cm) and she has a slim, slightly athletic physique. Elena has an uncanny physical resemblance to her ancestor and doppelgänger, Katherine Pierce, who often poses as Elena in order to trick others. However, even though Elena and Katherine look exactly the same in terms of physical appearance, there are some slight differences between the two in terms of fashion and style, and especially personality. Elena physically resembles the original Petrova, Amara.
In terms of fashion sense, while Elena's human, she's much more casual, sporty and "girl next door" and doesn't wear a lot of make up or favor fashionable clothing unless attending a formal event. Elena favors wearing dark blue jeans with t-shirts of various colors and Converse sneakers. Elena primarily wears fashionable clothing or dresses up for special occasions or formal events. Katherine's fashion sense or style, on the other hand, is much more high maintenance, expensive and trendy. Another distinct difference between Elena and Katherine's physical appearance is that Elena always wears her hair flat and straight, which Katherine does not like, while Katherine wears her hair curly. However, Katherine often straightens her hair in order to fool people when she's posing as Elena. Elena wore a special necklace containing the herb vervain in it as a human, which is really the Esther's talisman which cannot be destroyed; it was given to her by Stefan to protect her from compulsion.
Elena as a newly turned vampire wears a small lapis lazuli daylight ring made by Bonnie in order to protect her from the sunlight. Elena has a slightly more sophisticated look and trades her usual jeans and t-shirts to dresses and boots. Since Elena now has the freedom to accessorize, she dips into her jewelry box more often. Elena is seen wearing more chain necklaces in season 4. After she abandons her humanity, she becomes more womanly in the way she looks. She gets red streaks in her hair and curls it. She also begins to wear skirts and belts. When Katherine possessed Elena, she removed the red streaks.
In American Gothic, Elena impersonates Katherine for the first time. As she has now changed her style, she's able to temporarily fool Elijah of her identity. As Katherine's wardrobe is much more adult, Elena switches her comfortable boots for high heels, casual denim jacket for slim fitting leather and took Katherine's sparkly eye catching jewelry including earrings, bracelets and her watch. To pass for Katherine, Elena also applies more make up, particularly dark eye shadow and eyeliner to a much more "sluttier" degree, as said by Rebekah. At first glance, Elena and Katherine are identical yet their personalities, mannerisms, style, and makeup differ greatly and are generally aspects which give away their identity.
In Season Five, Elena starts to wear more skinny jeans, low-heeled boots, low heels, combat boots, sleeveless blouses, leather jackets, short skirts and super short shorts, varied dresses, makeup, and plunges more in her jewelry box.
Jeremy is Elena's biological cousin/adoptive brother. Although Jeremy and Elena are biological first cousins, they've been raised together as siblings. After their parents die, they wanted to help and protect each other. Once the two of them became more aware of the supernatural activities and entities of Mystic Falls, Elena and Jeremy worked to keep each other and their other loved ones safe. Although they sometimes were led apart, they still seemed to retain their closeness as siblings. They loved each other and were always willing to risk their lives to save one another. They had a bond that no one could ever break. After becoming a vampire, he still loves her regardless of what she is. They continue to protect each other seeing that they are what they have left each other. Losing her younger brother crushes her and causes her to turn her emotions off. But thanks to Bonnie, he was brought to life.
"I don't have a choice, baby. You are, by far, the greatest thing that has ever happened to me in my 173 years on this Earth. The fact that I get to die knowing I was loved not just by anyone, but by you, Elena Gilbert. It's the epitome of a fulfilled life. It’s never gonna get any better than this. I peaked. I love you, Elena. Bye."
Damon Salvatore is Elena's one true love, her best friend, and Stefan's impulsive elder brother. As the series progressed, they fell in love with each other. Damon is a 173 year old immortal who is described as seductive, cocky, acts arrogant, impulsive, dangerous, and charming. Elena first met Damon when he was in Mystic Falls looking for his object of obsession for over a century, Katherine Pierce. He then talked to Elena but afterwards, compelled her to forget their meeting. Elena then met Damon again at the Salvatore Boarding House when she went to look for Stefan. After a while, she started to view Damon as self-centered, violent, sociopathic and cruel, especially when she found out that he continuously abused and used her close friend, Caroline Forbes against her will. She was horrified to discover that Damon was also behind all of the murders and unusual "animal" attacks in Mystic Falls. Originally, Damon disliked Elena and was rather apathetic about whether Elena lived or died. Damon was drawn to Elena, mostly due to the fact that Elena bears an uncanny resemblance to the object of his obsession for over a century, Katherine. Although Damon and Elena often bicker and don't get along, Elena began to slowly warm up to him as she got to know him, befriending him in the process. But she still kept her distance due to Damon's constant immoral and impulsive behavior. Damon and Elena's friendship deepens with time and the two become closer, Damon fallen for Elena and Elena developing feelings for Damon. Damon once told Elena that he loved her, but that he didn't deserve her, but Stefan does. He then compelled her to forget his confession afterwards. As opposed to Stefan, Damon is seen to be extremely selfish when it comes to Elena, willing to put the life of Elena's before anyone else's, including Elena's loved ones. But throughout the series, he has grown and changed, protecting not only Elena, but her family and friends as well. Elena and Damon became closer than ever, and the sexual tension between them increased as Elena's emotions were heightened. During Season Four, Stefan ends his relationship with Elena because of her no longer fighting the feelings she has for Damon. Elena admitted to Damon that he was the reason for her breakup with Stefan and with Jeremy trying to kill her, Elena was forced to move into the boarding house with Damon. Stefan moved out when she moved in because of the awkward situation and relationship between her and Damon. Damon and Elena made love for the first time and became a real couple the night she moved in with him. During their romance, Damon has never given any indication that Elena would “lose” him, under any circumstances really. Quite the opposite, he promised never to leave her again. The passion they share is hard to define. Damon once again had the opportunity to prove his worth and show Elena his humanity. She brings out the good side of him — that he doesn't have to kill for fun and drink blood from innocent people. This humanity makes it only harder for Elena to hide her true feelings for Damon. She cares very much about him. Throughout, she maintains a rocky relationship with him but they manage to overcome anything. She once again confessed her love for him after the sire bond was broken in the season finale. At the start of Season Five, having had the perfect summer together they were determined to make their long distance relationship work while she attended college. Their happiness was short-lived, however, as Elena and Damon's relationship was repeatedly assailed by a seemingly endless number of difficulties. They had to come to terms with Stefan's summer-long imprisonment and the revelation of Bonnie's death, all the while having to deal with Silas and Qetsiyah's struggle for dominance. Things were further complicated by the Augustine Society and a vengeful Katherine Pierce's machinations as well as the threat posed by the Travelers and their leader Markos. These events among others had devastating emotional impacts on Damon and Elena and led them to question the wisdom of their relationship. Despite all this and having numerous arguments, separations, breakups and reconciliations, they never denied their love for each other. Ultimately, their love and the notable support of Stefan allowed them to come back together once again before the season's end.
Stefan Salvatore is Elena's close friend and ex-boyfriend, as well as Damon's younger brother. Stefan is a 163 year old immortal who is described as handsome, athletic, mysterious, brooding, kind, compassionate and thoughtful. After returning home to Mystic Falls after years of being gone, Stefan unexpectedly "met" Elena on May 23, 2009, after he heard Elena and her parents' car accident while he was out at Wickery Bridge. The Gilbert's car had submerged deep into the water under the bridge, where Elena and her parents were facing death by drowning. It was then that Stefan miraculously saved Elena's life, although unfortunately, Elena's parents, Grayson and Miranda, didn't survive the tragedy. After the accident, Elena spent months wondering how she made it out of the accident and believed that her survival was a "miracle". For the next four months, Stefan remained in Mystic Falls, while studying Elena's background from afar. Stefan investigated Elena's background in order to find out whether or not Elena was really Katherine Pierce due to Elena's uncanny physical resemblance to her. Stefan eventually discovers through the info that he has researched and gained, that Elena is not Katherine and Stefan is relieved by this. He slowly starts to fall for her from afar and he stays in Mystic Falls because he has to know her. Elena fatefully and unexpectedly meets Stefan for the first time at the beginning of the new school year outside of the Men's washroom. Elena is undeniably drawn to Stefan and the two have an instant, deep and indescribable connection. Stefan and Elena begin to bond and slowly start to develop a romantic relationship. They both realize that they share many qualities, hobbies, traits, values and beliefs in common. As Elena and Stefan start falling deeper in love with each other, Elena unexpectedly discovers Stefan's deep, dark secret: Stefan is a century old vampire with a mysterious past. Although Elena is at first scared of Stefan and what he is, Elena eventually accepts Stefan's vampire-ism. As opposed to Damon, Stefan is known to respect Elena and honor her choices and wishes, even if he doesn't agree with them. Stefan and Elena no longer have a strong love and connection. There have been many different obstacles over the course of the series that have tried to come between them. Some of these obstacles include Stefan's brother, Damon, Stefan's blood addiction issues, the unexpectedly events in Mystic Falls, Klaus, Rebekah, the Originals, Katherine Pierce, John Gilbert, Stefan's Ripper phase and most recently, Elena's new found vampirism. When she reveals she is in love with Damon. Elena admitted she was no longer in love with Stefan because of feelings that he treats her like a project and looks at her like a broken toy and that she can't be with someone like that. They have moved on from each other and remained good friends.
Alaric is Elena's step father and guardian. They became close when Alaric started dating her aunt Jenna. Alaric was also her history tutor. Alaric taught Elena how to protect herself from vampires and how to fight. Alaric became the legal guardian of Elena when her aunt Jenna was killed by Klaus. As Elena didn't have much family left, Alaric was there for her and Jeremy. Alaric along with Damon, protected Elena from the dangers that surrounded them. Elena was devastated when Esther turned Alaric into an Original resulting into him not completing the transition. But Esther took control of Bonnie and made her feed him her blood so that the transition would complete. Alaric then took Elena hostage so he could lead Klaus there to kill him. Elena realized that their lives are connected meaning if she dies, he dies. The moment Elena had died, Alaric died in Damon's arms and Elena came back as a vampire. During season four, she had mourned him and amends were then made. She was reunited with him when he was brought back to life in the Season Five finale, due to Damon and Bonnie's sacrifices.
Bonnie Bennett has been best friends with Elena since childhood. Bonnie is also a close friend of Caroline Forbes. Bonnie has mentioned that she and Elena are so close they're like sisters, and she would die for Elena in an instant without hesitation. Throughout the series, Bonnie is protective of Elena, even risking her life to ensure Elena's safety and protection. Elena used to joke about Bonnie's "supernatural" or psychic powers until Bonnie eventually discovered she is descended from a long line of powerful witches, inheriting the gifts herself. Although Bonnie has always been supportive of Elena, after Elena began a relationship with Stefan Salvatore, a vampire, Bonnie and Elena begin drifting apart. Their friendship was strained when her Grams died after being weakened by a preforming a powerful spell to help the Salvatore brothers release Katherine Pierce. From the episode Isobel and onward, their friendship has remained relatively consistent and the two remain best friends. Ever since Jeremy died and Elena turned off her humanity, Elena ruined her friendship with Bonnie by almost trying to kill her. When Elena got her humanity back, she and Bonnie are now back to being best friends and have a strong friendship. They are also roommates with Caroline in college.
Although Elena and Caroline had been friends since childhood, Caroline's constant insecurities as a human, which made her jealous of Elena at times, had created and maintained a friendly rivalry between the two. When Caroline became a vampire, her insecurities went away, and their relationship improved a lot as a result. When Elena became a vampire herself, however, she broke up with Stefan and started dating Damon instead. And because Caroline could never accept this, as she never liked Damon and always saw Stefan as the better brother, their friendship degraded considerably. Later, it further degraded after Elena turned her humanity off, to the point that they are were enemies: Elena tried to stake Caroline, and will do everything that she can to ruin the prom dance that she carefully planned. That problem seems to be fixed in the latest episode. Now they are back to being best friends and has upgraded tremendously. They are even roommates in college.
In the novels, Elena is described as a very beautiful, popular girl in high school. All of the boys want her and all of the girls want to be like her. Elena was born July 5, 1974 in Fells Church, Virginia to Thomas Gilbert and Elizabeth Gilbert (née Morrow), who were tragically killed in a car accident years back. Elena is 17 at the beginning of the very first book, and she is the most beautiful, popular girl at Robert E. Lee High School (mainly called the Queen). Physically, Elena is extremely beautiful. She has an 'angelic' physical appearance. Elena has a thick, long, straight pale golden hair, which reaches just above her waist and is so fair in color, it almost seems to shimmer in the sunlight like gold. Elena has an unusual, unique eye color of blue, which is described to be the same color of lapis lazuli (a deep, dark blue) stone (which is the stone vampires use to protect themselves from sunlight) with flecks of gold (but have also been described to be the color of violets). She has a fair, pale, and creamy skin (compared to the color of swans, alabaster or porcelain) with light rosy pink cheeks, long dark-blonde lashes, and dark blonde eyebrows.
Elena is of average height for a teenage girl and she is described to have a slender, gorgeous body. According to Stefan, Elena is about a good hand span taller than Katherine. Although Elena has a strong physical resemblance to Katherine, there are slight physical differences among the two girls. While Katherine has lighter, silvery eyebrows and eyelashes, Elena's brows and
lashes are darker blonde. Katherine is described to have extremely long (it pools and trails behind her on the floor) darker blonde curlier hair while Elena has pale gold blonde straight hair. Elena sees herself as beautiful; therefore, she is quite proud and vain. Elena is said to strongly resemble Katherine, so much so that Stefan is strongly reminded of Katherine when he unexpectedly meets Elena for the first time in the first novel. There are repeated references as to her looking like an angel or "angelic". Personality wise, Elena is described as loyal, protective, caring, strong-willed, determined, popular, sociable and active. However, she is also selfish, self-absorbed, vain, spoiled, childish and headstrong.
Most of this extreme change in Elena's personality and outlook had to do with her meeting Stefan. In terms of love and romance, Elena often used the boys or the opposite sex as toys, prizes and objects to help boost her self-esteem. Elena always felt that even though all of the boys in Fells Church desired her and wanted to be with her, she felt that she was yearning for something "more" and that something (or somebody) was "missing". Elena's first love was her childhood friend, Matt Honeycutt, who is the good-looking, all-American, star athlete. At the very beginning of the school year, Elena breaks up with Matt because she feels that there are no sparks in their relationship and that she discovers that she loves Matt in more of a platonic, cousin, brother or best friend way.
Elena's life changes forever when she unexpectedly encounters a handsome, mysterious, foreign boy, Stefan Salvatore. Elena is deeply, passionately in love with her soul mate Stefan (to whom she is connected and bound to by a "silver cord"), but she also has deep feelings of desire for Damon (Stefan's dangerous, malevolent elder brother). Elena dies several times in the series, going from a regular human, to a vampire (after she consumes enough vampire blood from both Salvatore brothers), to a ghost/spirit of the afterlife, to a supernatural human with special powers and abilities.
Most recently, Elena has discovered that she is a Guardian on Earth, a very rare species. Guardians are said to create balance between good vs. evil on Earth and are destined to fight all darkness and evil vibes on Earth, restoring good on Earth as much as possible.
Elena is a feminine first name of Greek origin ‘Ελενη (Elene) or ‘ελενη (Elene) which means "torch". The meaning of Elena is "the shining light", "the bright one" or "light". It is a variation of the name Helen.
Gilbert, which is Elena's surname, is a surname of Germanic origin. The English-language surname is derived from Giselbert, a medieval personal name composed of the following Germanic elements gisil ("pledge", "hostage", "noble youth") and berht ("bright", "famous").

Elena : "Dear diary, today will be different. It has to be. I will smile, and it will be believable. My smile will say "I'm fine, thank you." "Yes, I feel much better." I will no longer be the sad little girl who lost her parents. I will start fresh, be someone new. It's the only way I'll make it through."
Elena : "Dear diary, I made it through the day. I must have said, "I'm fine, thanks," at least thirty-seven times. And I didn't mean it once. But no one noticed. When someone asks, "How are you?" They really don't want an answer."
Elena : "Okay. Hi, bird. That's not creepy or anything. Shoo!"
Elena (to Stefan) : "Were you following me?"
Elena (to Stefan) : "Uh-huh, and you just happened to be hanging out in a cemetery."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Oh. Wow. Tactless. I'm sorry. It's the fog, It's making me foggy. And then back there, there was this - this bird, and it was all very Hitchcock for a second. That is the bird movie, right, the Hitchcock? . . . I'm Elena."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I know. We have History together."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I'm sorry. Any siblings?"
Elena (to Stefan) : "You know, you're kind of the talk of the town."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Mm-Hmm. Mysterious new guy, oh, yeah."
Elena (to Stefan) : "What makes you think that I'm sad?"
Elena (to Stefan) : "Last spring - my parents' car drove off of a bridge into the lake. And I was in the backseat and I survived, but. . . they didn't. So that's my story."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Matt's that friend since childhood that you start dating because you owe it to yourselves to see if you can be more."
Elena (to Stefan) : "And then my parents died, and everything changes. Anyway, Matt and I, together we just... I don't know, it wasn't, um... It wasn't. . ."
Elena (to Stefan) : "No. No, it wasn't passionate."
Elena : "Dear diary, this morning is. . . different. There is change. I can sense it, feel it."
Elena : "I will see him again. For the first time in a long time, I feel good."
Elena : "Stefan? Stefan?"
Elena (to Damon) : "I. . . I'm sorry for barging in. The door was. . . open."
Elena (to Damon) : "He didn't tell me he had a brother."
Elena (to Damon) : "Wow. This is your living room?"
Elena (to Damon) : "You say it like every relationship is doomed to end."
Elena (to Damon) : "Yeah, I should probably go. It was nice to meet you, Damon."
Elena (to Stefan) : "You seem to spend a lot of time apologizing."
Elena (to Stefan) : "You didn't tell me that you had a brother."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Always. He told me about your ex. Katherine."
Elena (to Stefan) : "That she broke your heart."
Elena (to Stefan) : "When you lose someone, it stays with you, always reminding you of how easy it is to get hurt."
Elena (to Stefan) : "It's OK, Stefan. I get it. You have no idea how much I get it. Complicated brother? Check. Complicated ex? Check. Too complicated to even contemplate dating, double check. It's OK. We met, and we talked, and it was epic, but. . .then the sun came up and reality set in. So. . ."
Elena (to Stefan) : "See, the thing is, I got home tonight planning on doing what I always do, write in my diary, like I have been since my mom gave me one when I was 10. It's where I get everything out, everything I'm feeling. It all goes in this little book that I hide on the second shelf behind this really hideous ceramic mermaid. But then I realized that I'd just be writing things that I should probably be telling you."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I would write. . ."Dear diary, today I convinced myself it was okay to give up. Don't take risks. Stick with the status quo. No drama, now is just not the time. But my reasons aren't reasons, they're excuses. All I'm doing is hiding from the truth, and the truth is that. . ." I'm scared, Stefan. I'm scared that if I let myself be happy for even one moment that. . .the world's just going to come crashing down, and I. . . don't know if I can survive that."
Elena (to Stefan) : "John?! Is that even possible?"
Elena (to Stefan) : "My whole life I’ve never liked this man. I.."
Elena (to Stefan) : "No, I’m happy that you told me, I just… I really hope that it’s not true. What I am supposed to do? Do I just… confront him and say “are you my biological father?”"
Elena (to Stefan) : "I’m never gonna be ready. Stefan, I have enough problems with the family that I actually care about. Jeremy hates me, and why wouldn’t he? My journal gave him every single reason to."
Elena (to Stefan) : "He’s never going to forgive me for Vicki, for taking away his memories, for lying to him."
Elena (to Damon) : "Is that an insult?"
Elena (to Damon) : "Look, I know Stefan is worried about our… friendship."
Elena (to Damon) : "No, did he mention something to you?"
Elena (to Damon) : "So, I think you should stop with the flirty little comments and that eye-thing that you do."
Elena (to Damon) : "Don’t make me regret being your friend okay?"
Elena (to Jeremy) : "I don’t believe that we can’t fix this. I lied, I was wrong. But you’re my brother, Jer, and I love you, and I have to fix it. So just tell me, what can I do?"
Elena (to John) : "As my father, it should."
Elena (to John) : "I wasn’t sure, now I am."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I’m so glad you’re okay."
Elena (to Stefan) : "You care about him, so do I. But I love you Stefan, and I know that you are worried about that."
Elena (to Stefan) : "But I love you, Stefan."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I love you Stefan, you!"
Elena (to Stefan) : "You have nothing to worry about, okay?"
Elena (to Damon) : "Well, you're daydrunk. It's not exactly your most attractive look."
Elena (to Damon) : "Ahah- I'm not saying you have any attractive looks. I'm saying this is my least favorite one..."
Elena (to Jeremy) : "Maybe because you got fired and you didn't tell anyone."
Elena (to Jeremy) : "Yeah, Jeremy! It matters. He was sired by Klaus. He's dangerous."
Elena (to Jeremy) : "Oh, no no! You're not going anywhere, especially not with Tyler."
Elena (to Tyler) : "This is weird. Klaus has hybrids stalking me and now you're just sitting in our kitchen."
Elena (to Tyler) : "Unless you have to, you know, check in with your hybrid master."
Elena (to Tyler) : "So you believe that serving Klaus is the right thing?
Elena (to Tyler) : "Okay, so what if he asked you to rip your own heart out?"
Elena (to Tyler) : "What if he did?"
Elena (to Tyler) : "You´re right Tyler I don´t understand. Klaus has terrorized every single one of us and you´re just blindly loyal to him."
Elena (to Damon) : "Don't even start, Damon!"
Elena (to Damon) : "You can't get in! The witches won't let you!
Elena (to Alaric) : "Ric, hey! When did you return to the living?"
Elena (to Alaric) : "Hating me. Hating life. Hating the fact that we can't even have a family dinner without somebody dying before dessert. Are you okay?"
Elena (to Klaus) : "Thank you for coming."
Elena (to Klaus) : "He doesn´t care about me anymore. You made sure of that. You turned him into a monster. Now he´s your problem. And just so you know I´m not the only one that Rebekah wants dead. She knows what you did to your mother. She knows that you killed her. You can let yourself out."
Elena (to Damon) : "I feel like a horrible person."
Elena (to Damon) : "I just can't stop thinking about what happened the last time I asked you to compel him."
Elena (to Damon) : "Thank you."
Elena (to Damon) : "Not just for this, Damon. For everything... I don't know what I would do if you weren't here."
Elena (to Damon) : "What? Damon, if he did it to protect you then... Why would he even do that? What is it even mean?"
Elena (to Damon) : "What? What are you talking about? Guilty for what?"
Elena( to Matt) : "It was. I’m sorry that I strung you along. I should have figured out what I wanted and just been honest about it. I’m now making the same mistakes with Stefan and Damon. It’s not right what I’m doing to them either, I – I have to let one of them go."
Elena( to Elijah) : "We’ve finally stopped him, Elijah. After everything that he’s done to us, I can’t just let you bring him back."
Elena( to Elijah) : "Why do you want Klaus’ body?"
Elena( to Elijah) : "We have a deal."
Elena (to Jenna) : "Listen, do you think someone could come pick me up?"
Elena (to Miranda) : "Matt and I got into a fight. He was talking about college and marriage and all the stuff that he always talks about and I just, I couldn’t."
Elena (to Miranda) : "I don’t know how I feel."
Elena (to Miranda) : "Yeah, but I don’t want to lose him."
Elena (to Damon) : "How are you feeling? Are there any symptoms?"
Elena (to Damon) : "Yeah, I’m – I’m sure we will."
Elena (to Damon) : "Matt’s taking me home."
Elena (to Damon) : "Not just to Stefan, Damon. To Tyler, to Caroline."
Elena (to Damon) : "Yeah, of course."
Elena (to Damon) : "I love him, Damon. He came into my life at a time when I needed someone and I fell for him instantly. No matter what I feel for you, I – I never unfell for him."
Elena (to Damon) : "I can’t think about always. All I can think about is right now. And I care about you, Damon, which is why I have to let you go. I mean, maybe if you and I had met first."
Elena (to Damon) : "You’re gonna be fine. You hear me. You’re gonna be okay and I’m gonna see you soon."
Elena (to Bonnie) : "I know Bonnie, you’re right. You and my mom both are. I just can’t bring myself to tell him. At least not tonight. I’ll call you later."
Elena (to Damon) : "No – um – I....I’m Elena."
Elena (to Damon) : "Not to be rude or anything, Damon, but it’s kind of creepy that you’re out here in the middle of nowhere."
Elena (to Damon) : "It’s Mystic Falls. Nothing bad ever happens here........Got into a fight with my boyfriend."
Elena (to Damon) : "Life, future, he’s got it all mapped out."
Elena (to Damon) : "I don’t know what I want."
Elena (to Damon) : "What, mysterious stranger who has all the answers?"
Elena (to Damon) : "So, Damon, tell me. What is it that I want?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "It’s not like I don’t love Stefan anymore, but I can’t deny that ever since I turned, my feelings for Damon have become more intense."
Elena( to Caroline) : "Well, what was I supposed to do? Lie to him?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "Well, he did and that’s exactly what I am. Confused. I need to figure out what these feelings actually mean."
Elena( to April) : "Safe is good when it comes to the judges."
Elena( to April) : "The red is pretty."
Elena( to April) : "Whichever one you want to wear, April."
Elena( to Damon) : "Damon."
Elena( to Damon) : "We need to talk."
Elena( to Damon) : "What did he say?"
Elena( to Damon) : "So, he didn’t tell you why?"
Elena( to Damon) : "You."
Elena( to Caroline) : "I’m calling him right now."
Elena( to Caroline) : "He’s not picking up."
Elena( to Damon) : "Matt said that Jeremy’s been having nightmares about killing vampires and he’s been hiding it from me."
Elena( to Damon) : "I don’t know. I have a bad feeling."
Elena( to Damon) : "Okay."
Elena( to Caroline) : "Maybe Damon’s right. Maybe he grabbed a bottle from the bar and snuck off to the woods."
Elena( to Caroline) : "I don’t know, but why do I think that you won’t hesitate to tell me?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "Wow, Caroline, thank you for making this very difficult time so much easier."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I have to find Jeremy. This shouldn’t be happening to him."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Tell me that Jeremy hasn’t been with you this entire time.Tell me that you haven’t been making him kill vampires, Stefan."
Elena (to Stefan) : "If getting my humanity back means stripping Jeremy of his, then I don’t want the cure."
Elena (to Stefan) : "You mean me. The only way to fix me. You don’t have to love me like this. This is who I am now. The old Elena died when she went off that bridge. Let her go."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I can’t stay at home anymore."
Elena( to Damon) : "Thanks."
Elena( to Damon) : "My brother wants to kill me."
Elena( to Damon) : "Jeremy can’t live with me, Stefan wants to fix me, and Caroline flat out admitted that she doesn’t like me this way. I think it’s safe to say that I’m not so great at this vampire thing."
Elena( to Damon) : "That dance that they did today kind of reminded me of when…"
Elena( to Damon) : "I wanted to dance with you today."
Elena( to Damon) : "No I don't have to be at school for.... At least twenty minutes ago. What's that face?"
Elena( to Damon) : "That face."
Elena( to Bonnie) : "Yeah. Why wouldn't it be?"
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "Oh -- I was in a rush. I mean -- look, do you girls have any plans tonight? I'm in desperate need of some girl talk."
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "So, girls' night? We can raid the Salvatore wine cellar."
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "I can't go home because my brother is trying to kill me. So their place is mine now, too. I'll see you in a bit."
Elena( to Damon) : "You being here makes your selfish, secret day a little difficult, don't you think?"
Elena( to Damon) : "I can't. You know I can't."
Elena( to Damon) : "Mm, I'm fine. It tastes like blood. Last time, it was like hot garbage."
Elena( to Damon) : "I'm better than OK. I mean, maybe last time, it was a bad batch or something. I can't believe this, Damon. I don't have to hurt people anymore. I have to get to class. Thank you."
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "Thanks to Damon, I am now a functional dysfunctional vampire."
Elena( to Caroline) : "Well, he suggested that I try it again. So I did and it worked. No more snatch, eat, erase."
Elena( to Caroline) : ""Out with Stefan for the night, don't wait up. Brother bonding.""
Elena( to Caroline) : "I know that you're not the biggest fan, but he kind of just changed my life. Would you mind laying off on all the hate?"
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : " I look like Superman. Watch this. This year's Christmas card. Being a vampire is so weird. Oh my God, I love this bathtub. Why don't we come and hang out here more often?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "No, don't stop on my account. Rip away. I mean, it's only Damon, right?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "So, what exactly was it about him that made you jump right into bed with him as soon as you met him?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "He's always been there for me when I needed him."'
Elena( to Caroline) : "Well, maybe I did."
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "Yeah, I did. Look, I know you two have issues with him, but I'm happy, and I wanted to spend tonight with my best friends so that I could tell them about it."
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "Party is over. You guys need to leave."
Elena( to Bonnie & Caroline) : "Do you think it makes me happy that you guys hate him? I get it. His track record has been kind of spotty but I don't hate him. I can't. He's - I think I'm falling in love with him."
Elena( to Caroline) : "What are you talking about?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "No. There's no way, I..."
Elena( to Caroline) : "I'm sorry, you talked to Stefan about this?"
Elena( to Caroline) : "Ok, you need to leave."
Elena( to Caroline) : "Just please don't tell Stefan about me and Damon."
Elena( to Caroline) : "I promise that I'll tell him. I just - I need to figure out some stuff first."
Elena( to Damon) : "Hey."
Elena( to Damon) : "How was your night?"
Elena( to Damon) : "Same."
Elena( to Damon) : "I know that I'm sired to you, Damon. Caroline told me. That's what you and Stefan were doing, isn't it? Is there a way to break it?"
Elena( to Damon) : "Tyler told me the bond doesn't affect how I feel, just the way I act. My feelings for you haven't changed, Damon. Nothing has changed."
Elena( to Damon) : "Okay, fine, yeah, I mean, I've changed. So have you, Damon. And I'm happy. Just like you were yesterday morning before we knew about any of this."
Elena( to Damon) : "It is real. I know that it is. Damon, I know what you're about to do. Please, don't do this to me."
Elena( to Damon) : "Does this feel wrong? Does this feel wrong?"
Elena( to Rebekah) : "I think you're sad and bored and in desperate need of a hobby."
Elena( to Rebekah) : "I didn't sleep with Damon because of the sire bond. I slept with Damon because I'm in love with him."
Elena( to Rebekah) : "Being with Damon makes me happy."
Elena( to Rebekah) : "When I'm with him... it feels unpredictable, like... like I'm free."
Elena( to Damon) : "Stefan knows about us."
Elena( to Damon) : "How do you think?"
Elena( to Damon) : "You know that I trust you."
Elena( to Damon) : "Thanks for looking out for him."
Elena( to Damon) : "Not yet. Something happened today. I realized something about you... about us. And you can say that it's the sire bond, and you know what, maybe—maybe, it is. But I'm telling you, it's the most real thing that I have ever felt in my entire life. I love you, Damon. I love you."
Elena( to Damon) : "So, I think there's some stuff you and I need to talk about."
Elena( to Damon) : "Damon, I can't take that."
Elena( to Damon) : "I'm not saying I don't want it – obviously I want it. But... that's the only one. There's only one cure. And the hunters have made it pretty clear that they're willing to kill everyone in Mystic Falls until they get it."
Elena( to Damon) : "I can't."
Elena( to Damon) : "What was that?"
Elena( to Damon) : "Take off your shirt."
Elena( to Damon) : "Fine."
Elena( to Damon) : "Damon, why isn't this healed?"
Elena( to Damon) : " We need Klaus. We need his blood."
Elena( to Damon) : "That wound will kill you!"
Elena( to Damon) : "Jeremy's right. If you're human, the werewolf venom won't hurt you."
Elena( to Damon) : "Damon, wait."
Elena( to Damon) : "Are you feeling better?"
Elena( to Damon) : "So it's all healed up?"
Elena( to Damon) : "Good."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Yeah. Stefan, can I, um... can I have a moment?"
Elena (to Stefan) : "Honestly, Stefan, I just wanted to thank you. For sticking by me when I was at my worst, for believing that I was still in there. Even after everything I put you through, you... you never gave up on me."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Here."
Elena (to Stefan) : "It's yours. I want you to have it."
Elena (to Stefan) : "The only person worse at being a vampire than me is you. Human blood is your downfall. You got the raw end of the vampire deal. The rest of us will be fine, we'll survive. I mean, you taught us. You deserve whatever you want out of life.You deserve this."
Elena( to Damon) : "Good."
Elena( to Damon) : "You would rather die than be human, and you expect me to be okay with that?"
Elena( to Damon) : "Fine, then I'm not sorry either. I'm not sorry that I met you. I'm not sorry that knowing you has made me question everything, that in death you're the one that made me feel most alive. You've been a terrible person, you've made all the wrong choices, and of all the choices that I've made this will prove to be the worst one. But I am not sorry that I'm in love with you. I love you, Damon. I love y–"
Elena( to Katherine) : "What are you doing?"
Elena( to Katherine) : "Of course, because Katherine Pierce can't be happy with good old vampire-caliber immortality."
Elena( to Katherine) : "I stole your happiness? You killed my brother!"
Elena( to Katherine) : " Kicking someone while they're down... classy till the end, Katherine."
Elena( to Katherine) : "Have a nice human life, Katherine."
Elena : "Am I seriously that easy to impersonate, or do you guys not know me at all?"
Elena : "hen have I ever danced on a bar half-naked? You think I would come to a college bar, with my under-aged brother and do tequila shots?"
Elena( to Matt) : "I'm not Elena, Matt. I'm Katherine. It's not me.. you guys know me. I-I-I would never do that, guys! Katherine has taken over my body! This isn't me."
Elena (to Stefan) : "The last thing I remember, I was running through the woods.. m-my head felt like it was being attacked by Katherine's whole life. I saw Damon and I threw my arms around him.. and.. nothing."
Elena (to Stefan) : "Three weeks ago? Wow. Three weeks... yet it took just one second for Katherine to infect me with some virus that makes me want to kill all my friends."
Elena (to Stefan) : "I need to talk to Damon."
Elena( to Damon) : "Hey you."
Elena( to Damon) : "Nope! So far, I am symptom free, although Stefan still has me on the, uhh, Damon diet just in case."
Elena( to Damon) : "Hey, uh. I'm calling you on a payphone."
Elena( to Damon) : "How did she do it?"
Elena( to Damon) : "Break your heart.."
Elena( to Damon) : "Ahh.. I'm so sorry. I really am. The last thing I remember, I was running into your arms.. and-and I felt so safe."
Elena( to Damon) : "I wanted to fight for you. I still do."
Elena( to Damon) : "I think I could schedule you in.........One question: How exactly do we cure this?"
Elena (to Stefan) : "Stefan, Stefan! It's not me. It's Katherine. Stefan! She's seducing you, stop!"
Elena (to Stefan) : "This isn't me Stefan? Can't you tell? After everything we've been through, I wouldn't lead you on like that."
Elena( to Damon) : "Damon?"
Elena( to Damon & Stefan) : "Stop it, okay? Both of you! This is what she wants. Even dead, she is ruining our lives!"
Elena (to Stefan) : "About what? About what, Stefan?!"
Elena( to Damon) : "I mean, I'm deteriorating slowly. I seem to be hallucinating all of my worst fears. So.. that's been fun."
Elena( to Damon) : "You can't. We would tear each other apart, remember? Besides, I look gross."
Elena( to Damon) : "Distract me."
Elena( to Damon) : "I don't know what's happening to me, Damon."
Elena( to Damon) : "I feel like no one's telling me the truth. Damon, I can't tell what's real anymore."
Elena( to Damon) : "I did it, didn't I? I killed him.."
Elena( to Damon) : "Aaron! That's what you're so afraid to tell me! Aaron! I killed him."
Elena( to Damon) : "Now is not the time? Damon, I'm dying! I almost turned a student today, who Katherine had apparently befriended, just so that I could feed on him. When would a good time be!!!? Huh?!"
Elena( to Damon) : "Nuh uh. No, No, No, No. You're lying to me, Damon. You're lying!"
Elena( to Damon) : "She won.. Katherine won."
Elena( to Damon) : "Look at me, Damon. Look at me! Look at me! The plague of Katherine Pierce lives on. She's turning me into something that I'm not. I mean, look at me; I'm a monster. Liv.. the witch, I almost killed her! And my friends.. I want to kill my friends. I think I want to kill my friends"
Elena( to Damon) : "No! It's not okay! It's not okay, Damon! I... I killed Aaron Whitmore."
Elena( to Damon) : "I keep seeing him, he kees popping up everywhere. I'm hallucinating that Aaron's around."
Elena( to Damon) : "W-h-at.. What? Why.. was it because of the virus? Did you need to turn him?"
Elena( to Damon) : "No."
Elena( to Damon) : "You should've noticed."
Elena( to Damon) : "That I was Katherine.. Katherine was me. You should've been the one that noticed."
Elena( to Damon) : " If only you'd seen through her, Damon. There would be no vampire virus, Aaron would still be alive..."
Elena( to Damon) : "And I'm still here! That's how much control you have over me!"
Elena( to Damon) : "You want me to blame you? Easy! Done! You screwed up, Damon. Again!"
Elena( to Damon) : "You put me in a position where I have to defend you, again, where I have to bend my morals, again. Where I have to go against every single thing thar I believe in, again, because I love you!"
Elena( to Damon) : "I can't!"
Elena( to Damon) : "I know.."
Elena( to Damon) : "It just did. It's over.. We're over."
