Welcome back to Humor Nation. Both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals featured a tale of the brotherly love. The story of Vampire Diaries started with Stefan and Damon Salvatore, two brothers who fell for a girl who turned them both into the vampires. Their relationship is strained and part ways, many years later they again find themselves in love with a girl who looks exactly like their first love. The story of Originals is focused on the Mikaelsons, the matriarch of the family Esther uses her dark magic skills and transforms her children into supernatural beings known as the ‘Original Vampires’. All the vampires in the TVD Universe (including Stefan and Damon) came into existence through the Originals.
So Take A Look At 5 Reasons Why The Mikaelsons Bond Was Stronger Than The Salvatores
5. THE BRO CODE
Love triangles are an integral part of the TVD Universe. Both the Salvatore and Mikaelson brothers have fallen in love with a Petrova doppelganger. Stefan and Damon first contested for the love of Katherine who ultimately chose. This didn’t sit well with Damon who planned on making Stefan’s life a hell. Later on, when another Petrova doppelganger Elena Gilbert came into the picture who chose Stefan, Damon continued making proposes and moves on her despite knowing that she is with his brother. He could have walked away, but deep down he wanted the love of Elena.
Similarly, the Mikaelsons also fell for a Petrova named Tatia who chose Elijah. Even though it created a conflict between the brothers, but it wasn’t as severe as with the Salvatores. Elijah would ultimately go on killing Tatia due to his uncontrollable bloodlust resulted from his new vampirism. He would confess about this tragedy to Klaus in Season 2 of the Originals who would forgive him. Klaus would once again forgive Elijah who once compelled Aurora, the love interest of Klaus, to hurt him deeply.
4. FAMILY MATTERS THE MOST
The Mikaelsons have walked the earth longer than any other vampires. In their long lives, they have seen the rise and fall of the empires, they have learned all sorts of mystic arts, created secret societies of vampires, slaughtered people, done all sorts of unimaginable atrocities. But one thing that has been constant throughout their lives is their vow of ‘Always and Forever’. Mikaelsons always prioritized their family over everything else whether it’s an love interest, absolute power, or dominance. Even the family members such as Finn who fought against the family for most part was cared and his death was avenged. Whereas the Salvatores didn’t truly value the family, the brothers were separated for the most part. The only thing that brought them together was their love interest.
