— Damon to Spike [src]

Damon Salvatore is a vampire from the town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. His existence takes place in an alternate plane of Earth.


Damon is a vampire that was turned in 1864 by his vampire lover Katherine Pierce. After believing she has been mystically trapped in a tomb for over a century, Damon discovered she was never there. After this discovery, Damon gradually fell in love with his brother's girlfriend, Elena Gilbert.

Soon after Elena Gilbert and Stefan broke up, Damon started a romantic relationship with her.

Throughout the stories

In 2010, while Damon was searching for his brother, Stefan, who had been missing for three months, Damon met with Spike in New York city to share a couple of drinks and talk about their messy love lives[1].

In 1977, Damon fell through a portal and landed in a parallel universe, where vampires are different from his own.

During a hunt for a victim to feed off from, he met Drusilla and her lover Spike. Despite the initial hostility between them, Damon and Spike soon became acquaintances.

The trio spent the following two months killing and feeding off New York's citizens.

In 2011, Damon receives the visit of Spike, who's been in Damon's universe for almost a year. There he discovers that his old friend is going through a transformation that is slowly changing Spike into a vampire of Damon's kind.

Along with his girlfriend, Elena, her brother Jeremy, and her friend Bonnie Bennett, Damon tries to help Spike discover what's happening to him and the reason why.

The group embarks in a road trip to New York to find a witch that may help Spike.

  1. The story Friends, whiskey and birds doesn't actually fit in the canon of Damon inside his AU setting through the stories, since it was retconed in Metamorphosis, but it's merely a mention.
