“I do believe in killing the messenger. Know why? Because it sends a message.”
1. His looks are swoon-worthy!
“You know you were dreaming about me, explains the drool.”
When you google ‘Damon Salvatore pictures”, you will see he has the perfect face and the perfect body. But it isn’t only his looks that make us fall in love with him. His complete personality can make any girl go weak in the knees. A mere stare from those penetrating eyes is enough. When he opens his mouth to deliver his super-witty one-liners, he shoots up the oomph levels.
2. Damon Salvatore has an unparalleled sense of humor.
“Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie will haunt me forever.”
He has delivered so many outstanding dialogues in TVD that it is possible to lose count. No matter how tense the situation is, he almost always has a witty one-liner up his sleeve, no matter how big the fix is.
3. He puts up a complex front.
“I just have to say it once. You just need to hear it. I love you, Elena. And it is because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you, why you can’t know this. I don’t deserve you. But my brother does.”
And after he says these words, he makes sure that she forgets it. So that his confession wouldn’t be a cause of misery to her and Stefan Salvatore hot brother of his. This is a very selfless thing to do and not something that we would expect from a regular killer. This dialogue testifies that he has much more depth on the inside. A stark contrast from what one would perceive from how he usually behaves.
4. He is fiercely honest and practical.
“Don’t get me wrong, Stefan. I don’t mind being the bad guy. I’ll make all the life and death decisions, while you’re busy worrying about collateral damage. I’ll even let her hate me for it. But at the end of the day, I’ll be the one to keep her alive.” To brother Stefan.
The bond between Damon and Stefan is incomparable to anyone else. In short, he loves Stefan. He is willing to go out and actually get things done, and in a particular amount of time. With his dark past and the torture he has faced in his life, Damon realizes he is the bad guy. And, Damon refuses to show the kindness that lives inside him. But he loves everyone. Need I say more?
5. Even when he doesn’t show it, he really cares.
“When people are good they expect good and I don’t want to live up to anyone’s expectations.”
So he doesn’t show the ocean of love concealed in his gorgeous eyes very often, but he does care for everyone. This includes Stefan, and of course, Elena (played by Nina Dobrev). In short, all his family members. Remember the scene where Damon and Stephan lie about the daylight ring? That’s some cool bro code right there. When he reveals that, we can’t help falling in love with him. How many of you have seen him shirtless? We are sure you fell in love with him then.
“You have ten seconds before I go old fashioned on the new guy.”
This dialogue oozes with his badass attitude. Also, how can we forget how many times Damon killed Alaric and Jeremy on the show? The only thing that kept them alive was the Gilbert ring. He is also one of the most tortured characters on TVD. Even while he is being tortured, it neither diminishes his courage nor his one-liners.
7. He is a quintessential romantic on the inside.
“You want a love that consumes you. You want passion. And adventure. And even a little danger.”
Damon calls for Elena Gilbert to give her all that. She is the only person for whom he would fight against the world, even though Rebekah killed Elena in the end. Don’t we all want a lover like that? Hence, Elena finds Damon was an iconic duo. Our hearts broke every time he went through intense emotional pain because of the woman he loved. We get you*wipes his tears*
