30 Day Couples-Meme, Day 01  
Day 01 - What is your current favourite ship?

Damon and Elena (Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev), The Vampire Diaries

Damon and Elena, no question. There are other couples I like right now, but the chemistry between actors Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, the push and pull of the characters, the intensity of their story, the truly epic journey that they are on just hits all of my couple hot spots.

Plus, they are so very, very pretty together. So pretty. See?

YAY, you're doing this meme!!! Can't wait for the rest of your answers. :D

(Pretty together? Pffft -- you forgot freaking sizzling. "Pretty" isn't a word I'd use to describe D/E, personally. ;)

It's funny because I decided to do this alongside the TVD meme because I didn't want to just have TVD entries only ... and, of course, the first question led to a TVD answer. Of course.

Well, duh, they're sizzingly, but I was basing that last part not on their chemistry or interaction, but on the sheer fact of how durn pretty both Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are ... and together they are very, very pretty!

Amen sista! I love Damon and Elena. Total opposites, but there is such a deep connection between the two, that it works.

The chemistry between Ian and Nina is off the charts and what seals the Damon/Elena ship for me. If any two other actors were playing these characters, I don't think I would be as invested. You can't fake that or "act" it.

And yes, they are very, very pretty together :)

Ah, see I don't think of them as opposites at all. Deep down they definitely have core similarities. The way they emotionally react to situations, the fact that they are do-ers, their intense loyalty to those they love, their incredible capability for forgiveness (and those are traits that I don't think that Stefan has). Outwardly, they are different, but in their souls, who they are as individuals, there is very much a likeness. It's partly why I believe they do understand and just *get* each other so well.

It really, really is.

The constancy and strength of their connection, the dying to know what's going to happen next, their phenomenal ability to bring these characters to life ... what better ship material can you get????

Never mind the jump-off-the screen, palpable chemistry ...

Damon and Elena are all of this.

God, yes, this all so much. And the fact that there is SO MUCH potential for story with these two that I can't see them ever getting boring. (And, of course, with that chemistry! I mean, every moment with them is so charged, it's practically unreal.)

THIS. all of this. I can't think of another pairing off the top of my head that is as intense and strategically drawn out as these two.

Absolutely. They've had so little screentime this season, and yet it's all been so charged and intense, that it feel like so much more.
