In today’s interview we got a chance to chat to fanfantasticworld about why she ships Klaroline, her inspiration for the covers that she makes, and how probable she thinks a Klaroline future is. Read what she has to say here:
KM: For all of the readers who don’t know you, why don’t you tell us about yourself?
Jovana: Hello there! My name is Jovana, but most people here know me as Jo. I love to make Klaroline edits, mostly fic covers, but I do gifs and other edits as well. I’m a huge fangirl, tv show and book junkie.
KM: Klaroline is not the easiest ship to ship; what was it about this pairing that stood out to you?
Jovana: Besides the amazing chemistry that actors have, Klaroline has always been for me about what both characters do for each other. Klaus challenges Caroline, makes her see there’s more to the world and appreciates her for who she is. Caroline in return challenges Klaus in a different way, he has to own up to his actions because she’s not just going to see past through them. It doesn’t hurt that we get to see playful and softer side of Klaus as well.
KM: 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?
Jovana: Because the fandom is full of amazing people that are so talented! We didn’t have anything canon for so long, but we had the most amazing fics, events, art to keep us here. We’re also very stubborn folk.
KM: Is there anything you would change about Klaus or Caroline?
Jovana: No, I would change anything because there’s no scene of theirs that I don’t like. If we’re talking about the current situation, I would have preferred it if there weren’t any babies, but beggars can’t be choosers lol.
KM: What was your opinion on that letter from Klaus in the TVD finale and the potential for Klaroline endgame?
Jovana: I thought it was beautiful! For me, Klaroline is already endgame on TVD. But the letter showed us that there is more to that story, it showed us that Klaus still thinks about Caroline all the time, that he intends to be her last love, however long it takes.
KM: How did you choose your url?
Jovana: I’m terribly uncreative when it comes to these things, so since I’m a multifandom blog (but mostly Klaroline one) being a fan in fantastic world seem logical, hah.
KM: You make amazing fanfiction covers, what inspires you when making them?
Jovana: Thank you so much! Fan fictions are my No. 1 inspiration. I’ll often see how I want the cover to look while I’m reading a particular scene in a fic. Or I would see a scene in a tv show/movie that I would like to turn into a cover. Music, but other fanfiction cover creators are my inspiration as well.
KM: Now that the Klaroline ball has been dropped in TVD, do you think The Originals will finally acknowledge Caroline’s existence or will it just be something that happens offscreen?
Jovana: If there is a season 5 of The Originals, definitely. I think there’s a high chance that we see more of Caroline there. But even if there isn’t, I think something Klaroline related will be in the finale.
KM: Does Klaroline remind you of any other ships from other shows/books/movies?
Jovana: Feysand from ACOTAR book series, as well as Warnette from Shatter Me series.
KM: And lastly, what’s your one piece of advice that you would like to give the fandom?
Jovana: We’ve been through so much together, so never lose hope! If we get more Klaroline on The Originals, know that it’s because all of us fought for it.
