Welcome to Imagine That on Wednesdays! I’m going to once again ask you to imagine two hot, sexy vamps going up against each other and vote for who you think would come out on top. Since most of you shouted for Damon over Stefan in our last competition, I’m going to oblige. But don’t think I’m going to make this easy for you. I have to admit, I was surprised that Stefan Salvatore and Edward Cullen ended at a tie. We’ll just have to agree with Alica McKenna Johnson’s assessment: “I see a pathetic slap fight they both break a nail cry and go get iced lattes.” Sounds good to me. Onward!
When he firsts make his entrance on The Vampire Diaries, Damon comes across as a very evil vampire. He has no qualms about killing, hypnotizing, and turning humans. He torments his brother, and doesn’t even treat Elena very well, even though he’s attracted to her. However, as the series progresses, Stefan and Elena seem to be a good influence on Damon. He helps his brother out sometimes, even saves his life. He cuts back on the villainous routine and has his moments of heroism. Yup, the ladies love this bad boy, even if he’s not so bad sometimes.
So who will be the contender? Someone with a similar backstory, of course.
He too, started out as an evil vampire, killing, rampaging, with the singular goal of killing Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Originally known as “William the Bloody,” he acquired the nickname Spike for his typical method of killing. In season 4, he makes an uneasy alliance with Buffy after a government agency implants him with a microchip that prevents him from feeding on humans. After that, it’s only a matter of time before he falls in love with Buffy, even going so far as to get his soul back. Another bad boy turned hero.
So tell me, who would you vote for? In a showdown between these two vamps, who comes out on top, Damon or Spike?
