Alaric Saltzman Drabble Week
Like with Bonnie Bennett, you don’t see many drabbles or fanfictions revolving around Alaric, although he features in plenty of other fics as a secondary character, so this appreciation week is dedicated to writing fics and drabbles to celebrate our love for this rugged history teacher/vampire hunter.
Like with the Bonnie Bennett Drabble Week (which is still ongoing, just remember to use the tag bbdw14 to tag your entries so I can reblog them), there is no time frame, just write up your drabbles and tag them as asdw14 so I can reblog all the entries. You can take part in a few or all of the days specified but you don’t have to do them in order, and you can make them platonic or romantic, it’s completely up to you, just note that the specified pairings listed aren’t necessarily romantically canon, they’re just whoever Alaric has interacted with on the show.
Day 1 Alaric x Jenna
Day 2 Alaric x Isobel
Day 3 Alaric x Damon
Day 4 Alaric x Elena
Day 5 Alaric x Jeremy
Day 6 Alaric x Meredith
Day 7 Alaric x ? (use this day to either write solely about Alaric, or to write about a pairing which hasn’t already been mentioned, so can be AU, crack!ship, and anything else in between)
Even if you don’t take part, would really appreciate people spreading the word about this, and the Bonnie Bennett post as well which can be found here so that as many people as possible know about both events and can take part as they’re is no time limit, but would like some as soon as so that I know if I do more events like this people will respond and take part.
Enjoy, have fun, and let’s give Mystic Falls’ finest history teacher all the recognition he deserves!
favorite characters collection: Elena Gilbert. Vampire
Elena’s different styles in her visions (5x18)
"Oh you know, looking at the stars, listening to the Universe laugh at me"
imagine though if there had been a parallel between this recent episode and 2x03, when Elena had turned back, her voice coated with sadness, locking her eyes with Damon’s, asking, “is this it then? Have I lost you forever?”
and he takes his time answering, because even he doesn’t know, and despite the fact he cannot stand to be around her because it hurts too damn much, he can’t quite say the words "yes, you have lost me forever" because he has been on the receiving end of those words, and he knows they hurt like a bitch.
so he goes with, “I don’t know.”
in the end those words hurt more because there’s no definite answer there for her to take hope in, or for him to use as closure, and they just stand there for a moment, hurting, inexplicably devastated beyond words, and then she walks away
and he lets her, because he doesn’t know how to fight anymore, not when sometimes the biggest thing you have to fight against isn’t the universe, or destiny, or fate, but yourself.
every bump in the road Delena have faced, they’ve always driven round
every time they’ve broken up, they’ve reunited even stronger
every time they argue, lash out, or break each other, they develop, grow and move forward
every time they’ve seemingly ended, it’s only been another beginning
We’ve done our best to live on this island. Some of us have come to accept that we may never leave it.
