Ugh, Alaric’s death that first time was one of the worst for me, I feel like I cried for two days after (maybe tied with when his body is collected to Elena and Damon is fighting him, sorry my memory’s not that great since haven’t watched). But music had always been huge to me and TVD is fantastic with it, so the death coupled with The Fray’s (one of my all time faves) “Be Still” was just ughhh 😥😭🤧</3

Yes, it was definitely one of the hardest. It’s true that later he came back, but in that moment in s3 it was definitive so it was heartbreaking and I was definitely in denial.
