    After Stefan turns him into a vampire, Damon announces that he intends to take revenge and give his brother an “eternity in misery”.

Conversely, during their 1942 reunion, they have a good time together, proactively getting involved in each other’s problems and dilemmas.

    When Damon learns of his brother’s addiction problem, he accepts to disappear from his life for a while to support his rehabilitation. He knows Stefan is in good hands, as his friend Lexi (Ariel Kebbell) is looking after him. This selfless act is very rare in Damon’s life. He is known for being selfish, impulsive, and rebellious. The fact that we see that he does, indeed, have red lines when it comes to family makes us realize that Damon’s true redeeming quality is not his love for Elena alone, but mostly his relationship with his brother. Stefan also forgives Damon, on many occasions, for his bad manners, his impulsiveness, and mostly for falling in love with his girlfriend. This brings us to our next moment…

    If ever there was an ultimate test of sisterhood, it would be the love of a woman. After all, Cain killed Abel for similar reasons. However, Stefan and Damon pass this test when they respect their mutual love for the same woman. In fact, since the show began, a rivalry has developed between the brothers over Elena (Nina Dobrev). The two fell tragically in love with the same woman, who, for the longest time, could not decide which one to choose. This situation created tension between them, to say the least. The amazing part to watch was how smoothly they managed to maneuver out of this frictional situation.

    Of course, it didn’t happen without some rough lines and punches that they threw at each other in sheer jealousy. But whenever Elena chose one over the other, the brothers would painfully respect her choice and give them space to live out their moment of happiness. When Damon breaks up with Elena, Stefan tries to mend their relationship, despite how hard it is for him to do so. He realizes that Elena makes his brother a better person, and he wants to help him become that version. The ultimate sisterhood moment on the show is definitely when Stefan plays the marriage counselor to his brother and his ex-girlfriend.

    There is hardly anything more brotherly than self-sacrifice. Stefan and Damon have mastered this art very well. No matter what life throws at them, they always end up looking out for each other.
