Stefan & Damon Moments That Bring The Awwwws

by Kristie Rohwedder

Oh, the Brothers Salvatore. Your shared history may have its crazy ups and even crazier downs, but it has never lacked a cordial greeting. The Vampire Diaries series begins with the Salvatore siblings at odds, but after a few episodes, it becomes evident that their fraternal bond is unbreakable. The handsome brothers can be sworn enemies for over a century, kick the snot out of each other repeatedly, and fall in love with the same women.

(My prediction: before the series ends, something wild happens that causes yet another Amara/Katherine/Elena doppelgänger to show up. Prediction, part 2: the Salvatores go gaga over the same lady YET AGAIN, but rather than let history repeat itself YET AGAIN, both parties decide to back away from the crush. Crisis averted! And everyone lives happily ever after. The end!)

But Stefan Salvatore and Damon Salvatore are forever family. As former Original Vampire Rebekah Mikaelson once said, "The Salvatores may fight like dogs, but in the end, they would die for each other."

Their relationship is most certainly complicated, but there is one thing about their dynamic that is plain as day: Stefan and Damon's love for each other knows no limits. Here are some moments that show just how much Stefan and Damon care about each other:

When Damon tells Stefan he will help him resist the urge to go all Ripper of Monterey again

Damon's got you, bro.

When Stefan explains why he saved Klaus

Oh, he did it to save Damon. NBD.

When they have this heart-to-heart about Elena


When they have this heart-to-heart about Caroline

"Well then, brother, stop wasting your time sitting here with me."

When Damon finally escapes from May 10, 1994

All of the feelings. All. Of. Them.

Aw, you need to see this. Here are their greatest hits:

No one grabs a shoulder reassuringly quite like a Salvatore brother.
