I missed this yesterday..oops!
I can’t choose between Dalaric and Delena. I’m a hardcore DE shipper, but Damon’s connection to Alaric is heartbreaking and I love it. Especially now in season 4, he still talks to his grave and saves a seat for him at the grill (!!!).
I could write super long passages about both ships, but I’ll just leave it at this: Damon needs Elena and Alaric, and vice versa.
