I find these parallels really interesting because in 1x01 when Elena is in the cemetery, visiting her parents’ graves, she’s suspended in her grief and doesn’t know how to move on from it and her parents’ tombstone is a source of pain for Elena because it’s a constant reminder of her loss and her facial expression reveals her sorrow and her inability to just live.
However, in 8x16 when she finds herself at the cemetery again, this time visiting Stefan, there’s a sadness there because he’s no longer with her but the crypt is a source of solace and comfort for her, she can smile after looking at it, it’s an encouragement to move forward and to live, Stefan’s memory imbues her with life.
This is why I never understood the argument that Stefan only came into Elena’s life to get her to move past the grief of her parents because he is a consistent source of “life” for her, he is a consistent source of passion. In season 2 he tells her he wants her to fight and not give up, in season 3 he tells her to embrace the fact that she’s feeling anything at all when Alaric dies, in season 4 he helps her through her vampirism and through her newfound humanity after her switch had been turned off and in seasons 5 and 6, he was a confidant while finally in season 8, his memory was her encouragement to move forward. Stefan and Elena’s relationship consistently grows and develops given the circumstances while the feel-good sentiments they inspire in one another remains the same.
New Orleans was exactly like Tyler described. At least the
view you got as he drove you through the Quarter was. He found an apartment for
rent near someone called Marcel, claiming that it would help keep the two of
“I’ll find us more to eat later but for now stick with this.”
He muttered, putting a small cooler of blood bags on the kitchen counter.
“You still haven’t told me what your business with your
friends is.” You mumbled, going to find which bedroom you’d like.
