Our latest interview is with the popular blogger Luiza aka incorrectklarolinequotes. She chatted to us about what inspired her to start the blog, her Klaroline Awards wins for Funniest Blog and Best New Blog, and what she wishes for season 5:
For all of the readers who don’t know you, why don’t you tell us about yourself?
Hi! My name is Luiza. I’m 19 and I’m from Brazil. I still don’t know what is my horoscope sign (it can be either aquarius or pisces, I’ve had conflicting answers), and I don’t really believe in that stuff, but it kind of bothers me. Anyway… I plan on going to medical school. I am an absolute book nerd, language enthusiast and I really love solving Math problems. I have been known to start weird, philosophical debates when drunk.
Klaroline is not the easiest ship to ship; what was it about this pairing that stood out to you?
I remember when I started watching TVD and finally got to the part where Klaus shows up for the first time, and I talked to my sister about how much I loved the character and she, knowing that I adored Caroline as well, told me that there were many people who shipped them. I laughed, because, well, I thought that was something that made so little sense and how did people even picture them together?
… Then 3×11 happened.
That one scene changed everything for me. An unstoppable force meets an immovable object… And it was so amazing to watch it. Their dynamic was incredible, the chemistry off the charts, there were so many possibilities for these characters… I was intrigued. And as I watched the other episodes, I began to crave their scenes, and it was very clear for me that they brought out the best in each other. And I think that’s what stood out for me: how refreshing it was to see them together, how challenging their relationship was, and how much potential they had.
One of the special things about the Klaroline Fandom is that we are so resilient, why do you think it has been possible for us to remain so active for so long?
I honestly think that one of the reasons was spite. It does take a certain amount of it for a group of people to stand their ground and refuse to back down from all the criticism we got from antis, casts members and writers. And I think that is a beautiful thing haha. But also, I think we all really love Klaroline and knew of the potential they had, so, since the writers clearly weren’t going to explore that, then we certainly would.
Besides, I think everyone has made friends in the fandom and this has become some sort of community that has brought so many people together. The Klaroline fandom has become something more than just people who love this ship. And all these ties we have to so many people in the fandom is one of the main reasons, in my opinion, why it has lasted so long.
What gave you the inspiration to start Klaroline Incorrect Quotes?
Honestly, there is no good story behind that haha. I simply love incorrect quotes and, while I had seen a few that involved Klaroline, I knew that there weren’t any blogs focusing on them and there weren’t many of them to begin with. So I thought it would be fun to have that place to sort of lighten up the mood even if we got bad news or were just bored while waiting for our endgame. And, thankfully, people seemed to like the idea, so here we are.
You won Funniest Blog and Best New Blog in the 2017 Klaroline Awards. How does it feel to win these coveted awards?
It was a truly lovely moment! I really thought that not that many people would be into IKCQ, so I was so happy when someone decided to nominate me for funniest blog and it was just incredible that they decided to vote enough for me to win. Especially when I was nominated with hellsbellschime and cbk1000, who have both made me laugh many times in the past and whose blogs I love. So, it was really great.
Everyone comments on how Caroline brings out the best in Klaus, but what traits does Klaus bring out in Caroline?
I think Klaus is constantly challenging Caroline into accepting who she is and what she is now. He, in a way, brings out who she truly is, not who she’s trying to be. He brings out the confusion there is inside of her about the things she wants and the things she is supposed to want, which I think is one of the reasons why she feels so frustrated whenever she’s with him (there are others, like him being an ass, of course).
He brings out the monster in her, the vampire — not exactly in terms of being evil, but of no longer being human and having to adjust to that, to the eternity that lies ahead of them. And I do believe he brings out the best in her as well. He makes her feel more confident in herself. He challenges her so that she can grow. He brings out the leader there is in her.
And, of course, he also brings out her most flirtatious side haha.
Soooo since we’ve seen the spoiler pics of Klaus and Caroline in New Orleans, what do you hope will happen with our favorite couple in The Originals final season?
Well, I hope Caroline hands him his ass as per usual. I hope we get to see them develop a bit of a friendship before they get together, and that we get a few little moments of them realizing that the feelings they had for each other have never truly gone away, and that things are different now and there’s nothing or no one that could really stop them. I hope we get to see them flirt, and have these adorable moments that we’re going to smile at whenever we rewatch those scenes. And I hope they get together at the end, obviously. I’d prefer if they left NOLA, but I’d also be happy with Caroline opening a second school there.
Those are the main things, but I have a few little details I’d love to watch because I’m greedy: another dance scene (because I’m a sucker for those), a hug, mentions to their past moments/conversations, and (which I’m fairly certain we are getting) at least one kissing scene.
Which song do you think represents the relationship between Klaus and Caroline the best? And why?
Oh, this is so hard. I think I’ll go with Light by Sleeping At Last, which I think describes quite accurately the way Klaus feels about Caroline. How much he wants her to flourish and how much he’s willing to do for her. The entire song is about how him promising he’ll do his best for her, so we have lyrics like “I will always hold you close, but I will learn to let you go” and “With every heartbeat I have left, I will defend your every breath” and “Though your heart is far too young to realize the unimaginable light you hold inside”… And just all of it, really.
If you were stuck on an island and could only take one Klaroline fanfic with you what would it be?
This is awful… There are so many great fanfics in this fandom! I’m going to say I’d take cbk1000’s The Original series with me, because I haven’t read it yet and alone, stuck on an island, I’d probably have the time. Plus, it’s quite long, so I’d be entertained for a long while.
And lastly, what’s your one piece of advice that you would like to give the fandom?
Honestly, just enjoy everything and everyone that is still around. Let’s have fun and appreciate these amazing moments we’re experiencing and that we fought so hard for. And don’t let the antis get to you… They will be salty, but it doesn’t really matter. Let’s focus what an amazing experience this fandom have been and let’s just celebrate it. Things are probably going to die down after the finale of The Originals, so I think we should all enjoy the Klaroline Fandom life while we can.
