I Liebe both characters. I may not agree with every decision he makes, but Damon is easily my fave character. I absolutely adore Elena and she comes in a close second.
I find her very underrated amongst the fandom and it’s perhaps because she has no Supernatural powers (considering how nobody gave a shit about Caroline till season 2.) But I actually find her Mehr interesting and Mehr complex than someone like Katherine. This girl carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. She’s smart, brave, and has a herz the size of Texas. I think mentally, she’s the strongest character on the show. All that, and we have yet to see her 18th birthday. There are aspects of Elena that we have not even begun to explore. She’s human and she’s going to make mistakes, but her herz will always be pure. She’s sweet and kind, but strongly driven Von passion. She’s a true heroine. We saw things from Stefan’s perspective in season 1 and Damon’s perspective in season 2. I’m hoping we see things from Elena’s perspective and Mehr of her and who she is and is becoming in season 3.
Damon…oh my Damon. What’s not to love? “He kills people blah blah blah.” He’s not real and he’s a vampire, I don’t care that he kills people. There are many reasons why I Liebe Damon, and they are the obvious reasons why everyone else loves him too. But I think what I Liebe most about Damon is how much I can relate to him. I know that might sound odd, but there is something very familiar about someone who is not good at controlling their emotions; someone who messes up constantly; someone who feels alone; someone who’s herz desires something out of reach; someone who wishes they could go back to being the person they used to be. I Liebe my Heroes and I Liebe my villains, but there is something about the anti-hero that always has me rooting for them. Someone who’s goals are pure, but they go about things the wrong way. There is something very human about that and that’s why I can relate to him.
What’s most amazing though, is the combination of these two characters. They make me laugh, they make me cry, and they have me at the edge of my sitz with my herz pounding in my chest every time. They are amazing as individual characters, but they’re truly spectacular together and that’s why they’re my absolute Favorit pairing on this show.
