We mean, Damon killed Alaric's wife and they still ended up being the best of friends. That's real!!
The pair always managed to pull on fans heartstrings throughout the show, so we're not surprised that they do that in their real lives too.
Recently, Ian Somerhalder uploaded an appreciation post for Matthew, and it had us in TEARS!
"I have to thank this handsome man to my right aka @immatthewdavis not just for years of great scenes as Alaric and Damon, drinking bourbon, the hundreds of hours of amazing deep conversations and brotherhood.
"I have to thank him right now for going down to my home town to give his time and energy by being the Celebrity Monarch for Mardi Paws aka @muttstomodels this past weekend. Myself and @isfofficial are so beyond proud and grateful to in part benefit from this amazing weekend. Thank you my beautiful dear brother and thank you all who attended the fund raiser and festivities.
"To all the friends, family and fans you'll never know how special this is and how grateful I am. This community means so much to me and to all of us. Thank you to the city of Mandeville and to the Mandeville Police department.
"Denise Gutnisky, you are an angel in this world and we all thank you for your tireless effort to bring community together around helping animals, young people and humanity. I adore you and appreciate you- thank you for this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do. Love, Ian"
