3.5 stars. I'd read anything that includes Damon.. He's one of my favorite vampires, and believe it or not, I do want him to like Bonnie instead of Elena!!!

So, if you are trying to find this it is located here: as a .pdf for free.

It's... disappointing and yet so Damon filled I must like it. Like bad fan-fic but... oh who cares! It's more Damon time. And it's in Fell's Church, and Bonnie is our little red head, and Damon is...

Ok, after sleeping on it I have decided this was actually terrible. They stripped everything I like about Damon away and left me with a really Emo Edward Cullen. Yeah, you didn't think Edw

A nice little story of when Bonnie first met Damon.

Though Elena is yet to think she was the first to meet the Salvatore brothers, Bonnie was the first to meet Damon. Set about a year before the first book came out, Bonnie spent the night in her school library to work on a project when creatures of the night decided to target her. Just around the time her grandma revealed the secret of the family and their Druid decent. Damon saved her and they then enjoyed some time together. A very cute short story any Bamon shipper would enjoy. Who knows maybe ...more

This is an incredibly adorable, innocent little story that, after the slow beginning, had me in hysterics the whole entire time. I think I finally gained an appreciation for this other book-Damon (even though anyone would prefer TV Damon) - maybe because he's a lot more easy with his emotions and not so bent on Elena that he would ignore the situation. As it happens, TV-Damon would never react like this one did but that's what's so refreshing...
And I love the different Bonnie, simply because it

I really enjoyed this and, plan on reading the other short Vampire Diaries stories. I love the Bonnie/Damon relationship, even though it's not touched on often because of his infatuation with Elena. (Here's to hoping we get more in the future) Also, some people have said that this couldn't of happened since we don't hear about it in the books. Well, I think you're wrong. He clearly influences her to forget in the end. Damon is full of secrets, so I believe, yes this could of happened and, I'd li ...more

Before I Read the Book...

I don't see why this is such an important in-between story unless Damon and Bonnie get together in the next book...

Summary of the Story

This is the story of how Damon and Bonnie really met for the first time. (view spoiler)
Jan 13, 2014 Kat rated it it was amazing
I love this!

I'm a huge Bonnie and Damon fan so this is really awesome. Its short but it's really cute.

So, Bonnie is staying late at a library, some werewolves show up, Damon to the rescue. And yeah, I loved the interaction between them!

And being a Bamon fan it's so awesome he met Bonnie before Elena!

So cute! Bonnie and Damon are my OTP for these books and to read a short little story about them was nice. Bonnie is my favorite character although she is childish I find her sweet. I don't think LJ Smith is the most talented author out there but I'm a huge huge fan of her works.

I've always liked the Bonnie-Damon pairing and have been one of the many who yearns for more.Even though it's not much,it's nice to read something that does not revolve around Elena and focus on Bonnie and Damon.
Oct 10, 2011 Stef rated it it was amazing
I loved this story, even though it was very short. I never really liked Bonnie as a character before but it definitely made me understand Damon's character more.

I dunno the exact date but whatever. I LOVE THIS STORY SOOOO MUCH! awww bonnie should be with damon! wait! NO! ELENA should be with damon! UGHH! I cant make up my mind!
Oct 26, 2015 Kendra rated it did not like it
Giving this 1 star is me being forcibly generous, because we can't rate things less than that.

I'm a Damon/Bonnie shipper so I was glad to have stumbled upon this.

But then I read it, and I was not glad at all. This was terrible. It read like really, really bad fanfiction, and I'm of the opinion that the author should not write anything ever again.

Damon slid the fainting girl carefully into a chair. Head injuries could be dangerous and might interfere with her ability to admire him.

Interpunctie zou wel fijn zijn in dit verhaal, en een iets interessantere setting ook. Het was wel oké.

An unedited little piece that answers a simple, "What if?"
I really love Bonnie in this series but Damon likes Elena.

Interesting little story in which we actually already discover Damon's weaker side before the actual books show :D It's nice to have a closer look into his mind and it's nice to get to know Bonnie a bit more. And I like it how Smith puts little foreshadowing lines, timewise, in it :D But it's Bonnie and therefore only 3 stars...and the beginning was a bit only became interesting after the first 14 pages...and that's halfway the story, so a bit late :P

This is one of my favorite Vampire Diaries short stories. It was fun and Damon is a whole lot different then what I'm used to see of him in the beginning of the series. Bonnie feels kinda weird, I'm used to the strong witch Bonnie from the tv show, not this frail little scared girl but I know that she will be all right. A very interesting story, and nice to see that Bonnie is more then miss goody two shoes.

"I always say if its not worth gossiping about, it didn't happen in the first place." Damon to Bonnie

This story I liked! Great improvement from the other two short stories (Elena's Christmas and Blood will Tell) I've read - there is a lot of Damon in the story! I haven't read the book series but I'm a fan of the tv series.

If I'm reading this correctly, I think Damon likes Bonnie.

Oh how I love Bonnie and Damon when the interact...
I LOVE how he refers to Bonnie as his little red bird. He looks after her and there is an underlying relationship that is hinted at being there but never confirmed or denied throughout the series.
I would have loved for these two to get together, but I doubt that will ever happen.
Jan 06, 2011 Serena rated it really liked it
it was sweet. But if this happened I think it would have been mentioned somewhere before... And if he just didn't let Bonnie remember him then why let her remember being at the library at all? And wouldn't he have already crushed on her when he came to town and not Elena?? Still a cute story.

I was intrigued to find out what there first meeting was. However as I am not a huge fan of the vampire diaries I did find parts of this short story slightly confusing. I think that if I knew more about this series then I think I would have enjoyed it more

I only read this because it's Bonnie/Damon. I've come to love these two but this was less than I expected. Damon just needs to stop being hung up with Elena. He obviously cares more deeply for Boonie than Elena.

It was... kinda nice. Not the best, but nice. Took me only about 2 hours or less to read it. Kinda associated with the series, but not everything makes sense. Anyway. It was interesting reading it.
