Death is your art. You make it with your hands day after day.
- Sooner or later, you’re gonna want it. And the second — the second— that happens, you know I’ll be there. I’ll slip in, have myself a real good day.
So Buffy was technically dead for like two minutes in the season one finale and the season two premiere (yeah I'm rewatching xD) is all about how she comes to terms with how traumatic that was, but on TVD everyone gets tortured, is forced to watch relatives be slaughtered, dies repeatedly, or is put in a coma for years but no one is feeling any type of way about that? I will forever be bitter about this show.
