So, Heidi R. Kling a tenner who had written a book called Sea that will be released June 2010 had written a Vampire Diaries guest post that I would like to share with you. So here it is:
Okay. So let me preface this by stating that yes, we are actually
discussing the merits that one fictional, DEAD, Vampire brother has over
the other. And we're all okay with that. :)
So Vampire Diaries has the sort of "Nice guy" brother, Stefan and the "Bad
guy" brother Damon. Both are attractive, smart and passionate, so it's not
a case of Who is cuter--because they are both cute. Both have hot bodies,
are tough and can twist a sharp pieces of wood into a vamp-heart when
So why do some of us prefer Damon over Stefan and visa-versa?
Well, Stefan is definitely the "Safer" choice of the two.
Let's do some Risk categories here:
DRINKS HUMAN BLOOD: Damon: YES Stefan: NO
WE SEE HIM KILL PEOPLE AND DRINK THEIR BLOOD: Damon: YES Stefan: NO
WE SEE HIM LOSE HIS TEMPER: Damon: YES Stefan: Rarely, and when he does its
for a good reason
TRUSTWORTHY: Damon: NO Stefan: YES...until last night's episode
And this is where things get interesting, folks and why I'm leaning toward
Damon, NOT just because I think he is the more attractive brother, but
because he "Might be" the more trust worthy in the end. And this is why.
Damon is STRAIGHT UP about his character or lack of it. Elena said in the
last episode, "Can I trust you?" Damon replied, "NO."
He is open and honest that he likes to hunt, kill, and suck the blood of
He tells his brother Stefan exactly what he thinks of him.
He is UNYIELDING in his love for his Vampire-Ex-That-Looks-Like-Elena and
in fact, will risk anything to dig her up and bring her back to life.
Whereas Stefan---is a little cagey. I know, he is MOSTLY honest, but last
night he lied to Damon straight to his face, looking him right in the eye,
and that's not cool. Well, he TOLD Elena he lied to Damon anyway. But he
could have been lying to ELENA about lying to Damon. See where I'm going
here? My hackles are definitely up, and it took a LOT to get Damon to trust
his younger brother, so I don't think it's cool at all that Stefan lied to
Plus, I find Damon incredibly charming, and Stefan, not so much.
So as of today, this girl is TEAM DAMON.
