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?
I gotta stick with the original bad boy, Spike 😉
Both are delightful but I am going with Damon. 🙂
Gotta do with Damon!!
OMG. How do I choose? I have major crushes on both, although Damon is way prettier to look at. Seriously.
Anyway, I hate, HATE, HATE, to do it, but I have to vote for Spike. He’s pretty bad @$$.
Lol, that totally surprises me, Tiffany!
Spike – all the way. The only reason he quit eating people was because the gov’t made him stop.
Very true, yet he did run off and get a soul eventually. On purpose. Thanks for stopping by, Lisa!
Wow! That its such a hard choice to have to make. Must it be only one? Really?
Well you made me think long and hard about it and I’m also going to go with Damon. I don’t want Buffy’s sloppy seconds. Lol Although Spike will forever be a bad azz no matter hows much of a love sick puppy he becomes.
Hey Debra! I agree, Spike does come off more of a bad azz. However, isn’t Damon Elena’s sloppy seconds? 😉 Thanks for stopping by and voting!
As much as I adore Spike, he lost so many fights to Angel, I have begun to question if he has any skills. Let’s just hang him from the rafters for the comedic factor while Damon goes at him with a wooden stick.
Haha, yet from the few episodes I’ve seen of Vampire Diaries, Damon didn’t win some of his fights either.
I, of course, went for Damon. He is still tough, even if he has his soft moments. Plus the guy is rather cute. Can’t beat that combo!
Damon is a hottie. Period.
I’m a thrilled that I won last time, and I’m ready to play again- but I need to know- it this pre-brain-chip Spike- because he was a lot more vicious then post-brain-chip Spike.
Hm, well while it’s true he lost some of his viciousness against humans, he could still call up some rage for a demon or fellow vamp. And Damon’s not a human. So, I’ll let you use your best judgment. 😀
Letting me use my best judgment- now there’s a recipe for disaster. Okay here we go (evil grin and hand rubbing while thinking) The battle is epic. Both our hero’s shirt’s are torn to pieces, and they fell into a river- so now they are dripping wet- Spike’s hair doesn’t fall, he’s too awesome for that. (And yes they have to fall into water because vampires don’t sweat and we need glistening muscles). The battle is close, but Spike’s tolerance for pain- hello he lived with Angelus, Drusilla, and Darla, gives him the advantage and he triumphs ripping Damon’s heart from his chest (not his stomach like a bad horror movie).
Spikes hair freaks me out, so I went with Damon 🙂 Granted, I never watched either show, so this was based purely on looks 😉
Spike – always and forever. Why?
“Love isn’t brains, children, its’s blood… blood screamin’ inside you to work its will. You’ll fight, and you’ll shag, and you’ll hate each other ’til it makes you quiver, but you’ll never be friends. I may be Love’s bitch, but at least I’m man enough to admit it.” – Spike from the episode Lover’s Walk
That, right there, is why he always wins. He’s not afraid to admit anything, even if it gives him the appearance of weakness. He’ll use your perception of him as weak to slip under the radar and take you out.
Hey Gigi, can’t remember the episode, but I vaguely remember that spiel. Good reasoning. 😉
