Bloggers Interview with mon-amour-eternel

This week we had a chance to chat to Dottie a.k.a mon-amour-eternel, about her favourite Klaroline scene, and what inspires her to keep writing. Read what she had to say here:

KM: For all of the readers who don’t know you, why don’t you tell us about yourself?

Dottie: Oh man I’m bad at these questions. My name is Dottie and I’m a high schooler in the Midwest. I write a lot in the MCU fandom. I really enjoy reading and writing familial relationships, so I love writing the Mikaelsons and Caroline with her mom. Uhhhh I am not good at math or science, I’m very much a creative type. I’m a good liar. I like reading things that scare me but I hate horror movies. I enjoy true crime and conspiracy theories. I’ve been writing for five years. I…can’t think of anything else lol

 

KM: Klaroline is not the easiest ship to ship; what was it about this pairing that stood out to you?

Dottie: He’s just so in love with her! You can practically see his heart eyes. And she Knows and is so receptive to it. Also the star-crossed lovers deal. Very ‘Bleeding Love’ by Leona Lewis, which is one my favorite ship songs.

 

KM: Have you taken part in any fandom events? Which has been your favourite?

Dottie: I participated in the Arbor Day event. I’m kinda anxious about events and getting done on time so I don’t usually write for them. I love Klaroline Gives Back tho! It’s so awesome.

 

KM: What is your favorite Klaroline scene?

Dottie: Ooh that’s a tough one. Probably the scene in the hall when she’s running away from Alaric and he comforts her.

 

KM: Now that we know that Candice King will be in The Originals season 5 premiere at the very least, how do you think the Klaroline will go down?

Dottie: Tbh I haven’t been paying much attention but I expect it go as well as it always has, which is to say, the writers will mess it up and keep baiting us. (I’m still bitter about Sterek.)

 

KM: What are your favourite ships other than Klaroline?

Dottie: MCU wise, Stucky and Barbershop Quartet. There’s also Captain Swan from OUAT and from TVD, Klefaroline and Baroline.

 

KM: You are a fanfiction writer, but what is it about this couple which keeps you writing about them even though they are seen by many to be a ‘dead ship’?

Dottie: I don’t think ships can die! As long as there are people having ideas, writing them, and sharing them, a ship cannot die. I keep having ideas, I keep writing them, and I keep sharing them. It’s not dead.

To answer your question for real, I think there’s so many avenues to be explored with KC. So many AUs and What If’s and such that could be written. And that’s super super exciting to me! I wanna be a part of that, you know? So I keep writing.

 

KM: If you could have any fanfiction be reenacted in canon, which one would you pick?

Dottie: Oh my god, this is the easiest question. Love Interruption by idiot-wind89. I swear I come back and reread it every few months. Every bit of it is so amazing.

 

KM: If Klaus and Caroline were transported to another show’s universe, which one would you pick?

Dottie: Good question! I’d pick OUAT. I absolutely love the idea of Caroline and Klaus being royalty or just fairy tale characters in general. I would cry if they got to have an onscreen wedding.

 

KM: And lastly, what’s your one piece of advice that you would like to give the fandom?

Dottie: When Plec and the rest aren’t doing KC justice, and the Steroline stans are telling us we ship a toxic, dead ship, just remember that the more you write, the more you inspire other writers. Also remind yourself that sometimes, canon is asking to be rewritten.
