Best Damon Stefan The Vampire Diaries Moments

Published

on

Everyone lovessss to argue about Damon and Elena vs. Stefan and Elena on The Vampire Diaries.


The CW

In case you’re wondering where I fall...this post make it pretty clear.

But honestly, I think we’re ignoring the real relationship of the show: and that’s Damon and Stefan.


The CW

BROTP for life. I mean…they’re literally brothers.

Here are 21 moments that prove Damon and Stefan’s brotherhood was WAY more important and interesting to watch than either of their relationships with Elena.

1.

In Season 1, Damon helped Elena save Stefan’s life, then went out of his way to assure Stefan he had zero guilt in Damon’s actions.


The CW

Damon was still the bad guy here (he still claimed to hate Stefan), but he still helped save Stefan’s life after he became riddled with guilt. Stefan always wore the weight of the world on his shoulders, and Damon was always trying to alleviate some of this guilt.

2.

And then when Stefan was in a vulnerable position again in Season 3, he chose to be the one to turn Bonnie’s mom so that Stefan wouldn’t have to deal with the guilt.


The CW

Damon was always willing to be the bad guy and get all the hate so Stefan wouldn’t have to, even when Stefan would’ve done the same thing.

3.

And then AGAIN, after Stefan was in a guilt spiral over killing Enzo in Season 8, Damon encouraged him not to punish himself, telling Stefan instead to be with Caroline and be happy.


The CW

Stefan was SO broody and Damon was always there to push him to be easier on himself.

4.

Stefan was furious at Damon after he fed Elena his blood before Klaus’s ritual in Season 2. But he still refused to let Damon give up on himself…


The CW

In case you forgot, Damon had been bitten by Tyler the previous episode and was dying. In order to avoid the pain and hallucinations Rose endured before her death, Damon took off his daylight ring to burn in the sun. Stefan stopped him, locking him in the cellar while he looked for a cure to the bite.

5.

…And even encouraged Elena to talk to him and make up with him since he could die.


The CW

Elena had literally just said she wanted a normal day with friends — but Damon made sure to give Damon and Elena the chance to say goodbye to each other. He knew Damon needed to be forgiven, and even though he was angry and worried about Damon’s feelings for Elena, he encouraged Elena to do so.

6.

And then Stefan literally gave up his entire life to Klaus so that Damon could live!


The CW

And I truly do not think he did it just out of “owing” it to Damon. He loved his brother!

7.

And before you come at me saying Stefan was the better brother — Damon did the same for Stefan when he asked his Commander for leave when Stefan needed him! Remember the dream/flashback from Season 7?


The CW

This whole deal ended up mirroring Stefan’s — basically, Damon had to kill innocent people, just like Klaus had Stefan do. Dysfunctional? Yes. Brotherly? Also yes.

8.

In fact, the Salvatore brothers constantly offered to sacrifice themselves for the other. Like when Cade tried to make Damon choose between Stefan and Elena in Season 8, and Stefan offered himself up.


The CW

Stefan was self-sacrificial, sure, but the amount of times he offered himself up for Damon was staggering.

9.

…And then Damon said no, and offered HIMSELF up instead, so that both Stefan and Elena could live.


The CW

“IT’S BEEN A HELL OF A RIDE.” Like if u cried.

10.

This whole “die for each other” thing culminated in the series finale, where they had to decide which of them would stay with Katherine to ensure Hell was blown up.


The CW

For once, in offering himself up, Stefan made it clear that he didn’t want to do it — he’d prefer to stay with Caroline. But he truly wanted Damon to live.

11.

Of course, Damon didn’t let Stefan sacrifice himself: he turned into a protective older brother and compelled Stefan to leave him so he could die.


The CW

This goodbye scene was far more heartbreaking than either of theirs with Elena.

12.

Which…did not work. Stefan died anyways, and in his last moment with Elena, he told her THAT DAMON WAS THE MAN SHE DESERVED!!


The CW

This was such a moment of growth for Stefan, who had previously told Elena she was better than Damon. He truly fostered and recognized Damon’s growth as a person, and encouraged his relationship with Elena because he knew it made him happy.

13.

Speaking of…Stefan was SO MATURE about Damon and Elena. In the Season 6 finale, he admitted Damon meant more to him that Elena, and that he was grateful to Elena for her role in helping Damon become better.


The CW

“Her faith in him brought Damon and me back together.” That’s it. That’s all I need to argue my point. Elena/Stefan and Elena/Damon were just different plots to bring about the same arc: Stefan and Damon becoming close agian.

14.

He even took on that role for Elena after he was gone in Season 7, pushing Damon to be the brother he deserved. Like when Damon decided to desiccate in a coffin:


The CW

I’d also like to point out that Damon was so upset over disappointing Stefan he decided to literally desiccate in a coffin for 60 years.

15.

…And again after Damon woke up, when he called him out for his lack of responsibility.


The CW

Elena may have made Damon better, but Stefan was the one to actively challenge Damon without getting caught up in the moment or being blinded by love. Their relationship was so much less toxic.

16.

It actually worked, too. Damon was able to take more personal responsibility than he ever did with Elena. Like when he apologized for abandoning Stefan in the Season 7 finale, and told Stefan to let him go.


The CW

Damon refused to let Stefan continue to sacrifice things for him. Damon knew he was partially responsible for the Raina mess and had spent years asleep while Stefan dealt with it, and he was determined to make it up to Stefan.

17.

But it wasn’t just Damon who needed Stefan. Stefan needed Damon, too. Remember when Damon died and Stefan became a total dick at the start of Season 6, then went to his family crypt to talk about how lost he was?


The CW

Stefan’s reaction when Damon was “dead” was far more serious than when he thought Elena was dead. And when he came back??? Such a beautiful moment.

18.

Or the time in Season 6 when Damon put his own feelings about their mother aside to convince her to lie to Stefan so that he’d get his humanity back.

19.

Or when he refused to let Stefan give up as he lay dying in Season 7, “confessing” to being selfish and not caring so that Stefan would be angry enough to get up and keep walking.


The CW

Damon was willing to use anything to inspire and help Stefan — even Stefan’s own anger at him.

20.

In conclusion, Damon and Stefan were there for each other from the start. They had SO MUCH history together…


The CW

I needed more of Damon and Stefan as bbs!!!

21.

…And in the end, when Damon died, he didn’t find Elena in the afterlife. He found Stefan.


The CW

The show ending this way was so beautifully fitting.
