DAMON SALVATORE APPRECIATION WEEK
Day One - Why you love Damon
Damon Salvatore is like a layered onion. There is so much to him but when you peel those layers and reach his core you realize he has the most beautiful and purest heart. He loves unconditionally, selflessly, above and beyond everything. He places the happiness of his loved ones over everything. And I absolutely love that about him. When he left a trail of intoxicating kisses on Katherine’s body he was willing to forget the 145 years he spent looking for her. When he saw Elena distraught and struggling over her new vampirism, he forgot everything and promised to help her. He will do anything for the person who he loves, be it watching them with someone else and be just a friend on the sideline, be it be sacrificing himself. Such is the love of Damon Salvatore.
Having said that, I cannot pinpoint my love for Damon Salvatore for solely this reason. I love everything about him. Be it his snarky comments, his cute expressions, his OCD or his plans to go snapping his enemies necks. He could be sitting around his fireplace drinking his bourbon and reading an old copy of Gone With the Wind and I would be fawning over him. I love all of him, even his flaws.
I love Damon Salvatore because he is Damon Salvatore.
