Stefan, I’m real. This is real. You need to know that I’m going to fight for you. Save you. I will, I promise. Just hold on. […] But I know I’m real. I know where you are. Stefan, I – WE love you. Don’t forget that. We’ll find you. We’ll make it all right.
Elena to Stefan in the Astral Plane in Something Like A Dark Crow

Elena Gilbert is the main protagonist of Tyler Gracyne's series, Something Witchy Comes This Way. She is an inactive Petrova doppelgänger and a 18-year-old vampire who has just enlisted in college with her best friend Caroline. After the discovery of Silas, Elena and her friends set out to find the Cure that he was buried in only to be betrayed by Katherine Pierce, Elena’s doppelgänger, who killed her younger brother Jeremy Gilbert and took the Cure as a bargaining chip for her freedom from the Mikaelson Family.

Greatly hurt, Elena shut off all her human emotions and turned into a monster, killed a waitress and even attempted to kill her best friend Bonnie Bennett only to be convinced by Matt’s temporary death to return to her emotional state.

Broken, Elena blamed everything bad that had ever happened in her life on Katherine and sought to kill her once and for all. After being convinced otherwise by the love of her family and the appearance of her brother Jeremy, Elena let go of her anger and grief. Finally, Elena made a choice between Damon and Stefan, and chose Damon.

Heartbroken, Stefan gave her the Cure and left town with Silas’s corpse to start a new life, which greatly hurt Elena, who believed herself to love Damon more than Stefan.

Confronted by Katherine Pierce, who’d turned her anger on Elena, the two doppelgängers fought to the death, being 500 hundred years old, Katherine was much stronger than Elena and would’ve killed her, had she not been carrying the Cure. To save herself, Elena shoved it into Katherine’s mouth and extracted all vampire traits from her.
