and Elena together Do think people will not continue to ead the series if she ends up with Damon That is a stupid assumption they obviously don t know their fan baseAnyway I am going to finish the series with a bitter taste in my mouth with what this UNTALENTED ghostwriter has done with LJ s beloved characters I won t No Limits (Brutal Master read any of the ghostwritten books for The Secret Circle series or The Hunters series By giving a 1 star to these books I m showing my dislike for Alloy Entertainment HarperCollins for firing LJ Smith They are not allowing her to write her books the way she wanted because they only care about what sells and don t have anyespect for story telling at all I personally am a Stelena fan but just cause I want a story to be one way doesn t mean it should be They Liar, Liar re not mine or anyone other than LJ Smith s stories to tell anyways For those who don t know what I m talking about here s the letter LJ Smith wrote herself to her fansegarding the issue Hi Thank you so very much for your kind words about Midnight I m so gladyou Essays One re enjoying it and if you already know that Damon says those threelittle words to Elena then I expect you know what she does for himafterwards I can t say how much I appreciate your understanding of thebook but at the same time my heart is so heavy that I just can t keeppretending about what s in the future for Delena fansYou see I ve been fired from The Vampire Diaries mainly because instead of giving my publishers the strict Stelana they demanded I went ahead and wrote what my heart told me to do They wanted Elena toealize that she was fond of or physically attracted to Damon but that her one true love was Stefan But I didn t see the series that way And so Midnight is the last Vampire Diaries book you ll see by L J SmithYou e probably wondering how this can happen since I write the series and have done so since 1990 But the truth is simple When I got a call asking me to write a vampire trilogy for Harper it wasn t Harper who was calling me It was a book packager now called Alloy Entertainment calling on Harper s behalf Their job was to take authors work put blurbs and covers on it and sell it to a publisher When I wrote the first Vampire Diaries trilogy it was called work for hire By the time I found out what that meant it was too lateWhat itStefan And Elena Together Do
