In today’s interview we got a chance to chat to Katie aka katiesfav about why she ships Klaroline, her favourite moments in the fandom and if she thinks we will see Caroline in The Originals. 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?
Katie: Hi all! My name is Katie and i am almost 24 years old. I am a dedicated Klaroline shipper for 6 years now. Actually Klaroline was the reason i joined tumblr. Something random about me: recently i graduated from University with a Bachelor’s degree in finances. Other things i like are superhero shows and badass characters.
KM: Klaroline is not the easiest ship to ship; what was it about this pairing that stood out to you?
Katie: The thing that really got me hooked up was Klaus’ absolute obsession and fascination with Caroline. How can someone so evil, unscrupulous, insensitive and dark fall for the purest, most caring person. Who would’ve thought that the girl, who is never the one, and the most heartless guy, who doesn’t care for anyone but himself, can fall for each other?
KM: What has been your fondest memory of Klaroline fandom life?
Katie: Honestly, every memory i have is a good memory. My fondest is maybe the TVD Season 5 Episode 11 reactions. I mean i cried with my fellow Klaroliners for sure! Other than that, every twitter trend, every article, every poll, every fanart, i am proud to be part of the KC fandom.
KM: What is your favorite Klaroline scene?
Katie: Oh my god, how can i choose?! Honestly i absolutely love all of their scenes, even the ones, where they are not themselves. Let’s say, for a lighter scene, i loved the one where they are sitting on that bench, just talking and having a really nice time in “My Brother’s Keeper”. I truly believe that they had a real connection there. It was so genuine and pure. Love their dark scenes too. The one in “Down the Rabbit Hole” aka “We are the same, Caroline.”, it was another truthful and strong scene for me.
KM: What would be your dream scenario for the Klaroline reunion?
Katie: As most of us, i think about the possible development of events. The possibilities are endless. For me things between them have to happen slow and natural. Nothing forced. As Joseph said, it has to have some drama and fight. And little by little they have to build the relationship that they haven’t had for a lot of years. I would love to see them work together. They are not only an incredible romantic pairing but also an awesome team. That’s what i want to see, teamwork, rekindling, building a relationship.
KM: I see you are an ardent Snowbarry shipper as well, do you see any similarities between them and Klaroline?
Katie: Yes i do enjoy Snowbarry a lot. I think the similarities are in the chemistry. They both have an incredible chemistry, but of course, that can be very subjective. The other thing is, no one saw them coming, they were “not meant to be”, which means they both came of naturally, not forced like their competitors.
KM: Now that The Originals has been renewed for another season, do you think the chances of us seeing Caroline in New Orleans are higher?
Katie: I do think the chances are pretty high right now. I really want to believe it will happen and for now the writers have my trust. Even more after the recent spoilers. I think we should give them one last chance and they better take it with open arms.
KM: If Klaus hadn’t made an appearance on TVD, with who you would ship Caroline?
Katie: Oh, that’s easy, Tyler. Forwood was definitely something i shipped before Klaroline came and showed us the right path!
KM: And lastly, what’s your one piece of advice that you would like to give the fandom?
Katie: I think this fandom is incredible. My advice is to always stay passionate, determined and creative. Never give up! Just a little more patience and I am sure we’ll achieve big things!
