It is not official, but I am thisclose to making The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon Salvatore my latest TVBoyfriend.
Yes, Damon Salvatore – the bad seed, the evil brother, the vampire who kills actual people and not just bunnies. And you know what? It isn’t even because he’s so pretty (which he is) or that he looks good shirtless (because he does) but because Ian Somerhalder has crafted Damon into a crazy, terrifying, hilarious, sexy, mischevious, nasty, tortured, sympathetic, charming sociopath who I totally, totally adore.
Who knew Boone had it in him? Damon is heartless and vindictive yet he reveals little tiny shards of humanity that keep you guessing if he’s really as bad as he wants you to think he is. I love when he torments his brother, I love when he harasses his brother’s girlfriend, I love when he stalks people and says snarky things to their face, and raises an eyebrow and cuts them down with a clever put-down. He is never not interesting to watch.
I am very excited to see where the show will go with HeartbrokenDamon, now that he knows that his VampireBitchDeadZombieGirlfriend Katherine is not actually a zombie, but just hasn’t felt the need to find him for the last 100 or so years, all the while he’s been pining for her and tormenting his brother about her. What will he do with the rejection coupled with Elena-the-Katherine-doppelganger who clearly sees some sort of “good” in him?
I smell a good ‘ol Cheesy Teen Drama love triangle heating up and for once I can’t wait!
And the mere fact that this video even exists, means I must share it:
